        La peau de chagrin. Études sociales.

      2 Bll., 402 S., 1 Bl. Mit 1 großen Stahlstich-Titelvignette ("Skelett") und 100 Stahlstich-Textillustrationen von Gavarni u.a. Gr.8vo (25,5 x 17 cm). Rotbrauner Maroquinband d.Z. (sog. Franzband) mit RVergoldung und RTitelei, blind-und goldgepr. Deckelfileten sowie goldgeprägten Eckfleurons und dreiseit. Goldschnitt. Blindgepr. Ornamentvignette auf beiden Deckeln (Adelsbibliothek). Prächtig gebundenes und wohlerhaltenes Exemplar der berühmten illustrierten Ausgabe dieses Weltliteratur-Romans von Balzac, der das faustische Thema des Teufelspaktes zeitgenössisch variiert. (dt. Übersetzungen unter diversen Titeln: Die Schicksalshaut, Das Chagrinleder, Die tödlichen Wünsche u.a.). Zum begehrten Sammler-Objekt (s.u.) wurde diese Pariser Edition aber vor allem durch ihren Aufwand an Ausstattung und Illustrationen, die eine (von Balzac geplante) Fortsetzung dieser bibliophilen Reihe seiner Romane nicht mehr zuließ: "...die Verleger planten (für den vorlieg. Roman, H.S.) eine außergewöhnliche Druckmethode, die die Vorzüge zweier grundverschiedener graphischer Techniken gleichzeitig realisieren sollte. Man wollte die Vignetten (i.e. die kleinteiligen Illustrationen, H.S.) nicht im Holzstich, sondern im edleren Stahlstich reproduzieren und sie dennoch wie Holzstichvignetten (...) locker in den Text einstreuen können. Während Holzstichillustrationen aber mit den Lettern gedruckt werden konnten, war für die Stahlstiche ein separater Druckvorgang notwendig. Man druckte also zunächst den Text, dann (...) die Vignetten, die offenbar auf so großen Stahlplatten graviert und radiert worden waren, daß kein Plattenrand das Schriftbild stören konnte..." (Katalog Wolfenbüttel "L'art d'illustration", 1985/86, p. 66). - Vorliegendes Exemplar, "das zu den beliebtesten illustrierten Büchern Frankreichs gehört" (Rümann, Illustr.Buch d.19. Jh., p.143, dort ausführlich) ist die erste illustrierte Ausgabe des Romans im 1.Druck: also mit dem Skelett, daß den Romanhelden in den Tod reißt, auf der Titelvignette. (beim 2. Druck mit gleichem Datum fehlt das Skelett !): "Les exemplaires avec le squelette sont les plus recherchés" (Sander Nr 43). - Die Illustrationen stammen von den damals namhaftesten französischen Zeichnern und Stechern: Baron, Janet-Lange, Gavarni, Markl sowie Brunellière, Nargeot, Langlois u.a. "und muten wie die feinsten Radierungen an" (Rümann). - Eine schöne Erinnerung an diese Edition hat Walter Benjamin in seinem Aufsatz "Ich packe meine Bibliothek aus"(1931) hinterlassen: "Als Denkmal meines aufregendsten Auktionserlebnisses...,- -- Eine schöne Zeit (um 1840), da man solche Prachtwerke...noch in einer Papeterie kaufen konnte." Benjamin freilich mußte das heißbegehrte Buch trickreich auf der Rümann-Auktion bei Emil Hirsch 1916 in München ersteigern (Auktions-Kat. Rümann/Hirsch Nr 368) für den damals stattlichen Preis von 120,- Reichsmark (in Halbleder). Eine nach 15 Jahren mindestens ungenaue Erinnerung an den Ablauf der Auktion geriet ihm zur Pointe seiner Erwerbung (vgl.dazu H. Scheffers, "Schlecht erinnert oder gut erfunden? Ein Auktionserlebnis Walter Benjamins", in: Aus dem Antiquariat Nr 159, 1992). - Zustand: Breitrandiger Druck auf starkem weißen Velin, Schnitt handvergoldet, - vereinzelt minimal stockfleckig oder Anflug von Stockfl.(eher im Blattrand) , mitunter sehr schwacher Abklatsch der kräftig gedruckten Stahlstiche (daher wohl frühester Abdruck), Buchrücken etwas verblasst, sonst sehr frisches und dekoratives Exemplar aus Adelsbesitz. - Bibliographie: Vicaire I 184. Brivois 15 ff. Sander, 19.Jh, Nr 43.

        Portale, 1985

      1985. Acrilico su carta. Cm 35x50. . . . . . . Rodolfo Aricò (Milano 1930 - 2002) ha studiato al liceo artistico di Brera e ha frequentato dal 1950 al 1955 la facoltà di architettura al Politecnico. Nel 1959 tiene la sua prima mostra personale al Salone Annunciata di Milano. Nel 1964. invitato alla Biennale di Venezia. espone un'opera formata da tre grandi tele in cui le forme quadrate sono disposte diagonalmente. E' un anticipo del primo "oggetto" del 1966. quando la sua pittura comincerà ad acquistare consistenza. organizzandosi su strutture sagomate.Solo nel 1968 però. con la sala personale alla XXXIV Biennale di Venezia. il carattere strutturale dei suoi quadri-oggetti si manifesterà nella sua piena tridimensionalità. I cataloghi delle sue mostre sono stati curati da Maurizio Fagiolo Dell'Arco. Giulio Carlo Argan. Roberto Sanesi. Guido Ballo. Gillo Dorfles. Francesco Bartoli. Gianni Contessi. Giovanni Maria Accame nella monografia dedicata all'Artista (Electa. 1990) si ferma a guardare "le carte leggere e appassionate. frutto di un lavoro continuo. assiduo e amato" degli anni Ottanta – Novanta. Sono le opere su carta. non semplici miniature delle grandi sagome. ma luoghi pittorici veri e propri dove la densa presenza del colore prevale sulla forma. accogliendo idee e riflessioni. "Le carte sono appunto un diario... qui possiamo scoprire la ricchezza che ci riserva l'opera minore. che senza clamori ci stupisce per la sua immediatezza. e come è detto in un frammento di Eraclito. non dice né cela. ma accenna".

        El otono del Patriarca.

      Plaza & Janes, Barcelona 1985 - First Spanish edition of this "majestic.superb.a stunning portrait of the archetype, the pathological fascist tyrant" (The New York Times). Octavo, original illustrated wrappers. Signed by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. From the library of Jose Saramago, with his signature on the front free endpaper. Both authors were recipients of the Nobel Prize in literature. A nice association linking these two great writers of the twentieth century. Very good in wrappers. One of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's most intricate and ambitious works, The Autumn of the Patriarch is a brilliant tale of a Caribbean tyrant and the corruption of power. From charity to deceit, benevolence to violence, fear of God to extreme cruelty, the dictator of The Autumn of the Patriarch embodies the best and the worst of human nature. Gabriel Garcia Marquez, the renowned master of magical realism, vividly portrays the dying tyrant caught in the prison of his own dictator-ship. Employing an innovative, dreamlike style, and overflowing with symbolic descriptions, the novel transports the reader to a world that is at once fanciful and real.

        Portrait de Jean Genet. Photographie Originale de l'artiste

      Par l'auteur 1985 - - Par l'auteur, s.l. 1985, 22x22cm sur papier Ilford 30x40cm, une feuille. - Grand portrait photographique original en noir et blanc réalisé par Marc Trivier. Tirage argentique original non signé, comme la plupart des œuvres de Trivier. Précieuse épreuve argentique originale du célèbre photographe belge, un des artistes contemporains les plus secrets, qui malgré un succès international précoce, a préféré limiter sa production pour conserver la cohérence de son œuvre. Marc Trivier ne tire pas de nouveaux exemplaires de ses anciens portraits, le papier de tirage qu'il utilisait n'est d'ailleurs plus commercialisé. L'artiste « réalise lui-même ses tirages sur papier baryté Ilford, consacrant plusieurs jours de travail à chacun, avec une concentration particulière pour rendre les blancs, par contraste avec des noirs d'une rare densité. Un tirage de Marc Trivier ne ressemble à aucun autre. Lorsqu'il accepte de les exposer, il les suspend dans des cadres en inox de sa fabrication, laissant libre cours à la vie du papier. » (Xavier-Gilles, « Marc Trivier et la tragédie de la lumière » in Le Monde Libertaire, 2011). Cette « vie du papier » participe de l'œuvre au même titre que les diverses altérations que subissent les photographies lorsqu'elles sont exposées : « Dans les boites, les tirages gondolent, mais qu'importe : le photographe affectionne ce genre d'accident. » (Claire Guillot, « Les face à face sans échappatoire du photographe Marc Trivier », Le Monde, 2011). Marc Trivier a une sensibilité particulière pour l'aspect matériel de ses productions. Alors que la photographie relève par essence du multiple, cette intervention de l'artiste dans tout le processus de création confère une aura autographique à ces tirages. Photographies d'artistes, de fous, d'arbres ou d'abattoirs, Marc Trivier aborde tous ces sujets avec un regard aussi précis qu'intense. « Dans sa cosmogonie, chaque chose, chaque être, végétal, animal ou humain, mérite le même respect. Car tous sont confrontés à la même loi d'airain : la solitude. » (Luc Desbenoit). La beauté qui émane de ses photos vient de cette nudité. Il n'y a ni retouches, ni recadrages. On retrouve dans son œuvre le même format carré souligné par le carré du négatif que Trivier laisse sur ses tirages. Ce cadre piège notre regard dans des photographies où le fard de la couleur est rejeté pour un noir et blanc incisif. Toute artificialité ayant disparu nous ne faisons pas face à la mise en scène d'un sujet mais à une présence exacerbée par la lumière irradiante et singulière, témoin d'un instant de vie et non de pose. C'est cette lumière, liée au médium photographique, qui unit les séries de Marc Trivier : « Les photographies de Marc Trivier écrivent une tragédie de la lumière, celle-ci n'accueillant les êtres - hommes, arbres ou bêtes - qu'en les brûlant, avant disparition. » (Xavier-Gilles in Le Monde Libertaire). C'est aussi elle, délivrée de tous les artifices, qui donne à ses œuvres l'aura qui les rend si présentes. Cette « brûlure » de la lumière nous renvoie à un instant réel, au « ça a été » de Barthes (La Chambre Claire, 1980) : « De trente-cinq ans de pratique photographique, d'obsessions, c'est peut-être ça qui reste : un mode d'enregistrement singulier de la brûlure de la lumière, décliné d'une image à l'autre, en une succession de propositions qui se ressemblent et pourtant chacune est aussi singulière que la fraction de temps auquel elle renvoie. » (Marc Trivier). « La photographie ne dit qu'une chose : « C'était. » On ne fixe que ce qui a été. S'il y a une tragédie, elle est là. » (Marc Trivier) Warhol, Foucault, Beckett, Dubuffet . les plus grands écrivains et artistes ont posés pour Trivier. Simultanément l'artiste s'intéressent également aux marges de la société, à ce que les hommes ne veulent pas voir. Il photographie alors les aliénés et les abattoirs qu'il place en regard des célébrités. Dès la fin des années 1980 son œuvre est unanimement reconnue et il reçoit le prestigieux [Attributes: First Edition]

        Surely You're Joking Mr. Feynman! Adventures of a Curious Character, as told to Ralph Leighton.

      New York: W. W. Norton & Company, 1985. First edition, first printing, and a fine copy in a bright dust jacket, signed by Feynman and from the library of a second Nobel Prize winner, Edwin P. McMillan. Signed copies of this first printing are rare: Feynman was notorious for refusing to sign copies of his book, reportedly telling his editor "I'm not going to go on TV and I'm not going to sign any books!" (interview with Lawrence Grobel, 28 February, 1986); and although the book eventually sold more than 500,000 copies, its success was unexpected and the initial print run was a lowly 3000 copies (Grobel, Los Angeles Times review, 20 April 1986). Widely regarded as the most brilliant, influential, and iconoclastic figure in theoretical physics in the post-World War II era, Feynman shared the Nobel Prize in Physics 1965 with Sin-Itiro Tomonaga and Julian Schwinger "for their fundamental work in quantum electrodynamics, with deep-ploughing consequences for the physics of elementary particles." Edited from taped conversations Feynman had with his close friend and drumming partner Ralph Leighton, Surely You're Joking Mr. Feynman! is a collection of humorous and poignant reminiscences in which Feynman describes his childhood and developing interest in science, his college education and work on the Manhattan Project, and his career at Cornell and Caltech. Among the memorable episodes are Feynman's description of an anatomical chart as a 'map of the cat', his safe cracking escapades at Los Alamos, and his exasperated reaction to winning the Nobel Prize. The section 'Monster Minds' describes his slightly nervous presentation of his graduate work on the Wheeler-Feynman absorber theory in front of Albert Einstein, Wolfgang Pauli, John von Neumann and other major figures of the time. The New York Times review of this volume (January 27, 1985) described Feynman as "a storyteller in the tradition of Mark Twain" who "proves once again that it is possible to laugh out loud and scratch your head at the same." Its title derives from an incident at a Dean's tea at Princeton University: when asked if he wanted cream or lemon in his tea, Feynman absentmindedly requested both. Only one copy of the first printing signed by Feynman has appeared at auction (Sotheby's, New York, 12 December 2017, lot 51, $43,750). Provenance: Boldly signed 'Richard Feynman' (1918-88) on front free end-paper; Edwin M. McMillan (1907-91), winner of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 1951 for the first artificially-created transuranic element, with his name and address in pencil at head of front free end-paper. Feynman and McMillan will have known each other at least since 1942, from when both were working at Los Alamos on the Manhattan Project. "For several years [Feynman] had played drums regularly with a young friend, Ralph Leighton (b. 1949), the son of another Caltech physicist. Leighton had begun taping their sessions, and then he began taping the stories Feynman would tell. He urged him on, calling him Chief and begging to hear the same stories again and again. Feynman told them: how he became known in Far Rockaway as the boy who fixed radios by thinking; how he asked a Princeton librarian for the map of the cat; how his father taught him to see through the tricks of circus mind readers; how he outwitted painters, mathematicians, philosophers, and psychiatrists. Or he would just ramble while Leighton listened ... Gradually a manuscript began to take shape. Leighton transcribed the tapes and presented them to Feynman for editing. Feynman had strong views about the structure of each story; Leighton realized that Feynman had developed a routine of improvisational performance in which he knew the order and pacing of every laugh. They consciously worked on the key themes ... "They knew they had a remarkable central figure, a scientist who prided himself not on his achievements in science -- these remained deep in the background -- but on his ability to see through fraud and pretense and to master everyday life. He underscored these qualities with an exaggerated humility; he took the tone of a boy calling the grownups Mr. and Mrs. and asking politely dangerous questions. He was Holden Caulfield, a plain old straight shooter trying to figure out why so many other people are phonies ... "His favorite sort of triumph in the world of these stories came in the realm of everyday cleverness -- as when he arrived at a North Carolina airport, late for a meeting of relativists, and worked out how to get help from a taxi dispatcher: 'Listen,' I said to the dispatcher. 'The main meeting began yesterday, so there were a whole lot of guys going to the meeting who must have come through here yesterday. Let me describe them to you: They would have their heads kind of in the air, and they would be talking to each other, not paying attention to where they were going, saying things to each other like 'G-mu-nu. G-mu-nu.' His face lit up. 'Ah, yes,' he said. 'You mean Chapel Hill.' "Feynman chose as a title the odd phrase uttered by Mrs. Eisenhart at his first Princeton tea when he asked for both cream and lemon: 'Surely you're joking, Mr. Feynman!' Those words had stayed in his mind for forty years, a reminder of how people used manners and culture to make him feel small, and now he was taking revenge. W. W. Norton and Company bought the manuscript for an advance payment of fifteen hundred dollars, a tiny sum for a trade book. Its staff did not like Feynman's title at all. They proposed I Have to Understand the World or I Got an Idea ('a nice Brooklyn ring and a little double meaning,' the editor said). But Feynman would not budge. Norton released Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman! in a small first printing early in 1985. It sold out quickly, and within weeks the publisher had a surprising best-seller" (Gleick, Genius, pp. 409-411). Richard Phillips Feynman was born on 11 May 1918 in the New York borough of Queens to Jewish parents originally from Russia and Poland. As a child, he was heavily influenced both by his father, Melville, who encouraged him to ask questions to challenge orthodox thinking, and his mother, Lucille, from whom he inherited the sense of humour that he maintained throughout his life. From an early age he delighted in repairing radios and demonstrated a talent for engineering. At Far Rockaway High School in Queens, he excelled in mathematics, and won the New York University Math Championship by a large margin in his final year there. He was refused entry to his first choice Columbia University because of the 'Jewish quota' and attended instead the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he received a bachelor's degree in 1939, and was named a Putnam Fellow. He obtained an unprecedented perfect score on the graduate school entrance exams to Princeton University (although he did rather poorly on the history and English portions), where he went to study mathematics under his advisor John Archibald Wheeler (1911-2008). He obtained his PhD in 1942, with a thesis on the 'path-integral' formulation of quantum mechanics. During his time at Princeton, he married his first wife, Arline Greenbaum; she died of tuberculosis just a few years later in 1945. While at Princeton, Feynman was persuaded by the physicist Robert Wilson to participate in the Manhattan Project. At Los Alamos immersed himself in the work on the atomic bomb, was soon made a group leader under Hans Bethe, and was present at the Trinity bomb test in 1945. During his time at Los Alamos, Niels Bohr sought him out for discussions about physics, and he became a close friend of laboratory head Robert Oppenheimer, who unsuccessfully tried to lure him to the University of California in Berkeley after the war. Looking back, Feynman thought his decision to work on the Manhattan Project was justified at the time, but he expressed grave reservations about the continuation of the project after the defeat of Nazi Germany, and suffered bouts of depression after the destruction of Hiroshima. After the war, Feynman declined an offer from the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey, despite the presence there of such distinguished faculty members as Albert Einstein, Kurt Gödel and John von Neumann. Instead he followed Hans Bethe to Cornell, where he taught theoretical physics from 1945 to 1950. Feynman then opted for the position of Professor of Theoretical Physics at the California Institute of Technology (partly for the climate, as he admits), despite offers of professorships from other renowned universities. He remained there for the rest of his career. During his years at Caltech, he continued the work on quantum electrodynamics (the theory of the interaction between light and matter) he had begun at Cornell, and for which he was awarded the 1965 Nobel Prize in Physics. He developed an important tool known as Feynman diagrams to help conceptualize and calculate interactions between particles, notably the interactions between electrons and their anti-matter counterparts, positrons. Feynman diagrams, which are easily visualized graphic analogues of the complicated mathematical expressions needed to describe the behaviour of systems of interacting particles, have permeated many areas of theoretical physics in the second half of the twentieth century. He also worked on the physics of the superfluidity of supercooled liquid helium and its quantum mechanical behaviour; a model of weak decay (such as the decay of a neutron into an electron, a proton and an anti-neutrino) in collaboration with fellow Caltech professor Murray Gell-Mann; and his parton model for analyzing high-energy hadron collisions. At Caltech Feynman gained a reputation for being able to explain complex elements of theoretical physics in an easily understandable way - he opposed rote learning, although he could also be strict with unprepared students. His 1964 Feynman Lectures On Physics remains a classic. In December 1959, Feynman gave a visionary and ground-breaking talk entitled 'There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom' at an American Physical Society meeting at Caltech. In it, he suggested the possibility of building structures one atom or molecule at a time, an idea which seemed fantastic at the time, but which has since become widely known as nanotechnology. He was also one of the first scientists to conceive of the possibility of quantum computers and played a crucial role in developing the first massively parallel computer, finding innovative uses for it in numerical computations, building neural networks and physical simulations using cellular automata. Just two years before his death, Feynman played an important role in the Rogers Commission investigation of the 1986 Challenger Space Shuttle disaster. During a televised hearing, Feynman famously demonstrated how the O-rings became less resilient and subject to seal failures at ice-cold temperatures by immersing a sample of the material in a glass of ice water. He developed two rare forms of cancer, Liposarcoma and Waldenström's macroglobulinemia, and died on 15 February 1988 in Los Angeles. After obtaining his PhD at Princeton University, Edwin Mattison McMillan entered the University of California at Berkeley as a National Research Fellow. After two years of work on the measurement of the magnetic moment of the proton by the molecular beam method, he became a Staff Member of the Radiation Laboratory under Ernest Lawrence, studying nuclear reactions and their products, and helping in the design and construction of cyclotrons (for which Lawrence won the Nobel Prize in 1939); he also joined the Faculty of the Department of Physics at Berkeley. In 1940 McMillan and Phillip Abelson produced a new element, element 93, when they bombarded uranium-235 with neutrons. This was the first time a transuranium element had ever been artificially created. McMillan dubbed the new element 'neptunium.' In 1941, McMillan, Glenn Seaborg, Joseph W. Kennedy, and Arthur Wahl isolated another new element, element 94, for the first time. Following McMillan's practice of naming element 93 after a planet, Seaborg named element 94 'plutonium.' In 1942 McMillan was involved in the initial selection of Los Alamos, and moved there to conduct implosion research. After the war McMillan returned to the University of California Radiation Laboratory (later known as the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory), eventually becoming its director. In 1945 he had the idea of 'phase stability' which led to the development of the synchroton and synchro-cyclotron; these machines extended the energies of artificially accelerated particles into the region of hundreds of MeV. McMillan won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 1951 for "discoveries in the chemistry of the transuranium elements." 8vo (209 x 138 mm), pp. [7], 8-350. Publisher's red cloth with dust jacket. Spine strip of dust jacket lightly sunned, top 1 mm of cloth spine slightly sunned, otherwise both very fine and fresh.

        Portale, 1985

      , , 0 - Acrilico su carta. Cm 35x50. . . . . . . Rodolfo Aricò (Milano 1930 - 2002) ha studiato al liceo artistico di Brera e ha frequentato dal 1950 al 1955 la facoltà di architettura al Politecnico. Nel 1959 tiene la sua prima mostra personale al Salone Annunciata di Milano. Nel 1964. invitato alla Biennale di Venezia. espone un'opera formata da tre grandi tele in cui le forme quadrate sono disposte diagonalmente. E' un anticipo del primo "oggetto" del 1966. quando la sua pittura comincerà ad acquistare consistenza. organizzandosi su strutture sagomate.Solo nel 1968 però. con la sala personale alla XXXIV Biennale di Venezia. il carattere strutturale dei suoi quadri-oggetti si manifesterà nella sua piena tridimensionalità. I cataloghi delle sue mostre sono stati curati da Maurizio Fagiolo Dell'Arco. Giulio Carlo Argan. Roberto Sanesi. Guido Ballo. Gillo Dorfles. Francesco Bartoli. Gianni Contessi. Giovanni Maria Accame nella monografia dedicata all'Artista (Electa. 1990) si ferma a guardare "le carte leggere e appassionate. frutto di un lavoro continuo. assiduo e amato" degli anni Ottanta – Novanta. Sono le opere su carta. non semplici miniature delle grandi sagome. ma luoghi pittorici veri e propri dove la densa presenza del colore prevale sulla forma. accogliendo idee e riflessioni. "Le carte sono appunto un diario. qui possiamo scoprire la ricchezza che ci riserva l'opera minore. che senza clamori ci stupisce per la sua immediatezza. e come è detto in un frammento di Eraclito. non dice né cela. ma accenna".

        El otono del Patriarca.

      Barcelona: Plaza & Janes, 1985. First Spanish edition of this "majestic...superb...a stunning portrait of the archetype, the pathological fascist tyrant" (The New York Times). Octavo, original illustrated wrappers. Signed by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. From the library of Jose Saramago, with his signature on the front free endpaper. Both authors were recipients of the Nobel Prize in literature. A nice association linking these two great writers of the twentieth century. Very good in wrappers. One of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's most intricate and ambitious works, The Autumn of the Patriarch is a brilliant tale of a Caribbean tyrant and the corruption of power. From charity to deceit, benevolence to violence, fear of God to extreme cruelty, the dictator of The Autumn of the Patriarch embodies the best and the worst of human nature. Gabriel Garcia Marquez, the renowned master of magical realism, vividly portrays the dying tyrant caught in the prison of his own dictator-ship. Employing an innovative, dreamlike style, and overflowing with symbolic descriptions, the novel transports the reader to a world that is at once fanciful and real.
