         Tres Poemas, Three Poems

      New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1987. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Motherwell, Robert. No. 351 of 750 (820 total), elephant folio size, unpaginated, signed by Octavio Paz and Robert Motherwell, fine book in a near fine box. Octavio Paz (1914-1998), Mexican poet and diplomat, won many awards including the Miguel de Cervantez Prize, the Neustadt International Prize, and the Nobel Prize in Literature. Critic Ramón Xirau wrote "The poetry of Octavio Paz does not hesitate between language and silence; it leads into the realm of silence where true language lives." Paz's literary career helped define modern poetry and the Mexican personality (N. B. info from The Poetry Foundation).___ABOUT THE ARTIST: Possessing perhaps the best and most extensive formal education of all the New York School painters, Robert Motherwell (1915-1991) was well versed in literature, philosophy and the European modernist traditions. His paintings, prints and collages feature simple shapes, bold color contrasts and a dynamic balance between restrained and boldly gestural brushstrokes. They reflect not only a dialogue with art history, philosophy and contemporary art, but also a sincere and considered engagement with autobiographical content, contemporary events and the essential human conditions of life, death, oppression and revolution (N. B. info from The Art Story).___DESCRIPTION: Bound in natural linen with pictorial pastedown of red and black, twenty-seven original lithographs printed at Trestle Editions on various hand-made Japanese papers with tissue guards, Spanish text in red and English in black; hand-set Bauer Bodoni Bold and Italic type, printed on mould-made paper from Cartiere Enrico Magnani; first poem was printed at Wild Carrot Letterpress, second poem has been printed at Stamperia Valdonega, and the last poem at Heritage Printers; elephant folio (approximately 21.75" tall), unpaginated; limited edition, this number 351 of 750 (an additional 70 copies were issued in various formats, unbound), signed by Artist Robert Motherwell and Poet Octavio Paz. Protected in a clamshell box bound in the same natural linen with black lettering on spine.___CONDITION: Volume is fine; clean, bright, as new. The clamshell box is overall fine, with professional repairs done to a small tear (approximately 0.75") on the lower left corner, the lower right corner of the box bumped, a few other extremely small areas of bumping for so large and heavy an item.___POSTAGE: Due to large size and weight, additional postage will apply; we are happy to ship at cost for both domestic and international customers, please inquire for details.___Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell. Please contact us with any questions you may have, we are here to help.

      1987 - Seattle: AA Graphics Inc., 1987. Lithographic map, printed in black and brown. Sheet 585 x 885mm. A caricature map of the world, by depicting President Reagan as a sheriff, his figure filling an exaggerated California, hands twitching over his six-guns. The rest of the U.S. is divided between the Mid and South-West ('Republicans and Other Real Americans'), the North-east ('Democrats and Welfare Bums') and Alaska ('Santa Claus'), with a special mention for San Francisco ('Homos'). Central and South America are 'Illegal Aliens', 'Contra Country' and 'Drug Pushers', with a portrait of Daniel Ortega; Africa, witth a portrait of Gaddaffi, is labelled 'Terrorists', 'Cuban Mercenaries' and 'White Folks' in apartheid South Africa. In Europe the UK is marked 'Thatcher Land', again with a portrait, containing 'Our Missiles'; France is labelled 'Socialists and Pacifist Wimps'; and Poland is 'Solidarity'. The USSR ('The Evil Empire' is filled with Gorbachev as a gun-slinger, with 'Their Missiles' and 'Ma's Cow'. Israel is over-sized and contains Beirut; Arabia is 'Our Oil'; Iran is 'Muslim Maniacs' with 'Our Arms Shipments'; China 'Good Commies'; and 'Japan Inc' is shaped like a car. In the Indian Ocean is a compass rose, with a central image of Granny and her apple pie, and cardinal points of 'North (Rich)', 'West (Us)', 'South (Poor' and 'East (Them)'. David Horsey (b. 1951) was an editorial cartoonist working for the Seattle Post Intelligencer when he drew this, the second of two world maps focusing on Reagan foreign policy (the first, 1982, shows Brezhnev as his foe). He won the Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning in 1999 and 2003. He now works for the Los Angeles Times.

         Photocall for the release of Bette Davis's new book This 'n' That'. Bette Davis. 14/09/1987.

      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.

         Handwritten Manuscript War Baby

      1987. fine. Original handwritten manuscript of the complete lyrics for War Baby. 3 pages, rectos only (the 3rd page with only 2 lines) of 8" X 10" ruled paper, 37 lines (233 words), neatly written in pencil, all in Jagger's own handwriting. Titled at the top, verse and bridge notations to the left. An authentic recording session draft, 1987, for his 2nd solo album Primitive Cool (his 1993 biography was also titled Primitive Cool). The band featured polished supporting performances by Dave Stewart, Vernon Reed, G. E. Smith, and Jeff Beck. Left edge trimmed 1/8" (no loss), 4 staple holes, else fine. I've bought and sold these rock & roll manuscripts for 35 years, and Jagger lyrics are mystifyingly rare (I guess he intentionally keeps them and chases after them). Those that are complete, published, recorded, staged, and for sale, are scarcer than the manuscripts of his analogous contemporaries, and War Baby is nothing less than his shot at an antiwar message, not up to the heights of Give Peace a Chance, or Blowin' in the Wind, but I've bought and sold a dozen manuscripts by various Beatles, and twice that many by Dylan, and this was the first (of only 3) Jagger manuscript I've seen for sale, with its ring of authenticity sure enough, for me to buy it (the other 2, at Sotheby's, 24 June, 2014, seemingly withdrawn on dispute over clear title (?), reaffirming that these are hard to buy and always will be.

         Aid & Comfort: The Artists Portfolio

      San Francisco 1987 - One of 500 copies. Scarce. This is the first and only edition of this artists portfolio that was conceived as an additional fundraising effort to supplement a benefit dinner performance held June 8, 1987 to raise money for people fighting AIDS. The initial effort was spearheaded by a group of San Francisco restauranteurs. The portfolio drew upon the talents of artists, writers, and printers. Fine artists selected current works to be reproduced. Restaurants contributed recipes, and food writers also contributed recipes and essays. The result was the production of twenty-three stunning broadsides. They delight with their diversity and fine printing. Among the well-known restaurants of the time participating were Campton Place, Chez Panisse, China Moon Cafe, Fog City Diner, Greens at Fort Mason, Square One, Stars, and the Zuni Cafe. Food writers included Diana Kennedy, James Beard, M.F. K. Fisher, Richard Olney, and Calvin Trillin. Printers included Arion Press, Matrix Press, Moving Parts Press, Stinehour, Peter Koch, and the Artichoke Press. All of the work was donated. This portfolio includes four pages of preliminaries, the 23 broadsides, and 10 color reproductions on glossy paper of art work by contemporary artists. Housed in a stiff red paper portfolio with printed spine label. All in fine condition. 9 x 13.25 inches. PRI/111517.
