         Live Aid. Bob Geldof & Paula Yates take a well-deserved break. 10/06/1985.

      745 x 520mm. Giclée Print using Archival pigment inks on Hahnemüle Fine Art Pearl 285gsm paper. Limited edition of 10 numbered copies signed by the photographer. Alan Davidson is a press photographer based in London for more than 30 years, Alan has photographed the rich, the famous, the before-they-were-famous to those that have fallen from grace. Going through his vast archive, with new treasures found within the old brown manilla envelopes, reads like a who's who of the great and good (and the very bad) of London society. Cinema stars rub shoulders with pop stars, royalty with politicians. Working from the late 1960s to the present day Alan remembers the days before celebrities became surrounded by 30 young publicists and before there were 50 photographers at every event you went to, allowing him to take intimate and relaxed portraits, unlike the anodyne syndicated press shots of today.

         La Basílica. (Collage de imágenes y de palabras).

      1985 - Sao Paulo, Edición del autor - Edicoes Exu, 1985. In-8º mayor.- 149 (1 bl.) p.- Texto e ilustraciones del artista.- Rústica de editor anillada.- Ejemplar nº 214, de una tirada única de 400 numerados e inicialados por el autor.- RARO. Un tema recurrente en la obra de León Ferrari es el cuestionamiento y la crítica de la ideología cristiana, vinculada, paradójicamente, con los aspectos más oscuros y dramáticos de la civilización occidental. La práctica del collage, mediante el procedimiento relativamente simple pero de contundente eficacia, de superponer imágenes contradictorias, de un anacronismo revelador, define un amplio sector de su obra. En "La Basílica" este procedimiento gráfico se extiende al collage de textos, para crear una compleja estructura operística de profunda intención crítica y sarcástica.

         Lettre autographe signée à Anne Bailly-Salins : "le Nobel est véritablement un petit enfer"

      1985 - - 1985, 21x29.7cm, une feuille. - Lettre autographe signée de Claude Simon à Anne Bailly-Salins, datée « Salses, le 3 décembre 1985 », 26 lignes à l'encre noire sur un feuillet de papier O.C.F. Savoyeux. Passionnante lettre du lauréat du prix Nobel à une amie d'enfance, dans laquelle Claude Simon décrit les affres de la tempête médiatique qu'il subit suite à cette nomination : « [.] le Nobel est véritablement un petit enfer et depuis le 17 octobre j'ai compris ce que veut dire "n'avoir plus une minute à soi" [.] ». Bien qu'il ait reçu le Prix Médicis en 1967 pour Histoire ou encore celui de l'Express pour La Route des Flandres, Claude Simon est, avant ce fatidique jour du 17 octobre 1985, un auteur relativement peu connu du public français. Certes la critique l'a déjà remarqué et érigé au rang de pilier du Nouveau roman, mais son œuvre exigeante voire hermétique peine à obtenir un succès commercial. Dans son discours de réception du Nobel qu'il tient trois jours après l'écriture de cette lettre, il répond à ses critiques: « Laissons de côté les griefs qui m'ont été faits d'être un auteur "difficile", "ennuyeux", "illisible" ou "confus" en rappelant simplement que les mêmes reproches ont été formulés à l'égard de tout artiste dérangeant un tant soit peu les habitudes acquises et l'ordre établi [.] le reproche fait à mes romans de n'avoir "ni commencement ni fin", ce qui, en un sens, est tout à fait exact, mais tout de suite je me plais à retenir deux adjectifs considérés comme infamants, naturellement ou, pourrait-on dire, corollairement associés, et qui montrent bien d'emblée où se trouve le problème : ce sont ceux qui dénoncent dans mes ouvrages le produit d'un travail "laborieux", et donc forcément "artificiel". » Des épithètes qui reviennent toujours sous la plume des critiques ou des béotiens et qui n'épargnent pas L'Herbe, son second roman qu'il évoque quelques lignes plus loin en réponse à sa correspondante : « Oui mes tantes. Ces femmes pleines de noblesse, comme vous le dites si bien, cette noblesse que j'ai voulu faire sentir en écrivant L'Herbe où est racontée l'agonie de ma tante Arthémise à laquelle j'ai essayé ainsi d'élever un tombeau digne d'elle et de ses sœurs. » Si la lettre débute par les contraintes de la mondanité d'écrivain nobelisé, cette seconde partie aborde des sujets plus intimes. Il évoque ainsi le terreau de sa vie et de ce roman : « Je reviens parfois à Arbois et aux Planches [.] », lieu où résidaient ses tantes paternelles qu'il évoque avec nostalgie : « Vous ne pouvez savoir comme leur souvenir m'est cher et tout ce qui les entourait. » Un souvenir attendri d'une époque et d'un lieu qu'il partage avec sa correspondante : « Je me rappelle aussi les leçons de latin de votre oncle, sa maison sur la route de Véreux [.] » Cette émouvante lettre souligne l'importante part autobiographique de l'écriture de Claude Simon, quelques jours à peine avant la remise de son prix Nobel dont le discours sera le manifeste de son style. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Signed autograph letter of Claude Simon to Anne Bailly-Salins, dated "Salses, December 3, 1985", 26 lines in black ink on a sheet of paper OCF Savoyeux.

         Cambalache al Dia. Year I, No. 1 (October 1985) through Year I, No. 11 (September/October 1986) (all published)

      A complete run in 11 issues of the Argentinian left-wing political and social journal, each issue approx. 16 pp., under the editorial direction of Alberto Parapugna, focusing on the democratization process in Argentina, each issue with a specific subtitle, including "Mientras Dure la Mentira", "Un País sin Ideas", "La Industria del Secuestro", "Vocacion de Grandeza", "¡Falsos Testigos!", "Entre la Hipocresía y lo Irónico", and "Crisis Total". Scattered illustrations. Small folio. Orig. pictorial self-wrpps. Buenos Aires 1985-1986. The Argentine military seized political power in a coup in March 1976, after the death of President Juan Domingo Perón, and ruled Argentina under a military dictatorship from 1976 to 1983. It was known as "la última junta militar" or "el Proceso de Reorganización Nacional". This dictatorship continued the "Dirty War", a period of state terrorism from 1974 to 1983 during which an estimated 30,000 guerrillas, dissidents, and suspected socialists disappeared. In February 1983, Buenos Aires Police Chief Ramón Camps publicly recognized the crime and acknowledged that the "disappeared" were actually dead. On June 18, 1982, the resignation of the regime's third dictator, General Leopoldo Galtieri, was called for, and a general election was held on October 30, 1983, with an incredible voter turnout of 85.6% to elect the new Argentinian president, governors, mayors, and other legislators. Very scarce; as of June 2017, WorldCat locates only one holding in a North American institution.

         Portrait de Jean Genet. Photographie Originale de l'artiste

      Large original photographic portrait in black and white directed and shot by Marc Trivier.Unsigned silver print, like most of Trivier's works. Unique proof drawn by the artist.Small tear on the upper edge and stain on the white part of the photograph.Photographs of artists, madmen, trees or slaughterhouses, Marc Trivier approaches all these subjects with a look as precise as intense."In its cosmogony, every thing, every being, vegetable, animal or human, deserves the same respect. For all are confronted with the same law of brass: loneliness. (Luc Desbenoit)The beauty that emanates from his photos comes from this nudity. There is no editing or cropping. We find in his work the same square format that traps our eyes in photographs where the makeup of color is rejected for an incisive black and white. Since all artificiality has disappeared, we are not dealing with the staging of a subject but with a presence exacerbated by the radiant and singular light, witness of a moment of life and not of pose. It is this light, linked to and obsessed with Trivier's medium, that gives his works the aura that makes them so present:"Of thirty-five years of photographic practice, of obsessions, it is perhaps that which remains: a singular mode of recording of the burning of light, declined from one image to another, in a succession propositions that are similar and yet each is as singular as the fraction of time to which it refers. (Marc Trivier)Taken from the front, with a look at the subject directed towards the lens, the photographs that Marc Trivier realizes personalities of the 1980s are not those of a star portraitist, but result on the contrary from a desire to desacralize:"Instead of being a portraitist of writers and artists among many others, he is marginalized by his device: under the pretext of adjustments, he makes his models wait, he makes them ask several minutes which gives them a weary air. He may be waiting for a more natural behavior. And we find ourselves facing Francis Bacon in precarious balance, Samuel Beckett, Jean Dubuffet or Michel Foucault more or less packed in their chair. Intimate images. ". (A picture of tifoxing Marc Trivier, S. Rousselle-Tellier, in Marges, 2004)Photographed in their personal universe, most of the time their room, the subjects surrender themselves, no longer master their image. The imbalance that results reveals the fragility of these strong personalities, and allows Trivier to restore the unity of the intimate body and the public work."I read Genet; for me Genet, it was letters on a book. And then one day I saw his portrait, it was like a fracture. How was it possible that these signs are also someone? To make a portrait is to tie up the name and the face. (Marc Trivier)Warhol, Foucault, Beckett, Dubuffet ... the greatest writers and artists have posed for Trivier. At the same time, the artist is also interested in the margins of society, which men do not want to see. He then photographs the lunatics and slaughterhouses he places next to celebrities. By the end of the 1980s his work was unanimously recognized and he received the prestigious Young Photographer Award from the International Center of Photography in 1988 as well as the Prix Photographie Ouverte (Charleroi). After the Palais de Tokyo in Paris and the Musée de l'Elysée in Lausanne, the Casino in Luxembourg, the European House of Photography in Paris devotes a major retrospective to him in 2011.

         El amor en los tiempos del Cólera

      Bogotá: Editorial Oveja Negra, 1985 First edition, limited issue of 1,000 copies. Signed by García Márquez and notarized by Colombian authorities to limitation page. Publisher's white boards, lettered in black to spine, in the original white dust jacket lettered in black, with steamboat illustration to front panel and artistic illustration of the author to rear panel. A bright near fine copy with a touch of soiling and bumping to extremities, as well as light toning to page edges; dust jacket lightly soiled with wear and creasing to edges, and with some closed tears and a few areas of loss to bottom edge, none affecting text. Overall, a pleasing copy of this scarce true first edition.El amor en los tiempos del cólera (Love in the Time of Cholera) focuses on the relationship of three members of a love triangle over the course of time. Based on the author's parents' relationship, the plot is divided into six parts, with two sections each for the three main stages of life: youth, adulthood, and old age. This volume is part of an advanced printing of 1,000 special edition copies signed by García Márquez, the proceeds of which were donated to the survivors of the 1985 Armero Tragedy in Colombia. During this catastrophic event, over 20,000 people died in the eruption of the volcano Nevado del Ruiz, including the majority of the population of Armero, a city built on the hardened remains of an earlier eruption. García Márquez, a Colombian nationalist and political activist, was living outside of the country at the time of the tragedy, having fled government persecution for his support of a radical military group. Although he did not return when he was invited back in 1982, Márquez never gave up his effort to improve the political climate and quality of life in Colombia. . Signed by Author. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.
