         Mexico City: Photographs By Helen Levitt

      New York City, NY: The Center For Documentary Studies/W. W. Norton & Company(1997). First Edition / First Printing. As New in As New Dust Jacket. 184 pages. Retrospective collection of photographs on subject. One of the finest photography books of the 20th century. Limited Slipcased Edition of 200 numbered and signed copies. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly the regular trade edition. The Limited Edition is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Helen Levitt and Marvin Hoshino: Oversize-volume format. Gray cloth boards with gilt titles embossed on spine, as issued. Photographs by Helen Levitt. Essay, "Helen's Other City", by James Oles, the American photography scholar/historian who has lived in Mexico City since 1991. Selected Exhibitions, Bibliography, and Acknowledgments appended at the end. Matching gray slipcase with gilt titles on one side. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper by Arnoldo Mondadori Editore in Verona, Italy to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Published on the occasion of the travelling exhibition of the same name held in 1997 and 1998. Presents Helen Levitt's "Mexico City". Indelible photographs of the eponymous, tragic city. In 1941, Helen Levitt spent several months in Mexico, photographing the city and its inhabitants. Her work joins the best by such photographers as Tina Modotti, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Walker Evans, and Henri Cartier-Bresson, who all felt an urgent need to come to grips with the city. Without sentimentality, Helen Levitt captured the conflicts and juxtapositions that announced Mexico City's entry into the 20th century. "These images stand as crucial documents of an urban world caught in the throes of modernity, of a people, and of a nation that was leaving the village behind" (James Oles). To show just that, Levitt personally selected the photographs in this collection, from among the hundreds she took, to represent her body of work on her other city, a searing contrast to her beloved New York, of which she has deservedly been called its visual Poet Laureate. An absolute "must-have" title for Helen Levitt collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Slipcased Edition, indicated as such on the Back Limitation Page, and it is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully numbered and signed in black ink-pen by Helen Levitt. This title is a great photography book. This is one of very few copies of the Limited Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 67 duotone plates. Helen Levitt's "A Way of Seeing" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER HELEN LEVITT TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0393045498.

         The Climb: Tragic Ambitions on Everest

      St Martins Pr 1997 - St Martins Press, New York, 1997. Hard Cover. Book Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. First Edition. xi, 255 p. Briefly INSCRIBED “D.J a challenge for Life hand signed G. Weston DeWalt and D.J. Namaste! Hand signed Anatoli Bourkreev”, and the next month Boukreev died in Nepal. Some light edge wear to the edges of the dustjacket. Some bumping to the top and bottom of the spine and the bottom front corner. Anatoli Nikolaevich Boukreev (1958 - December 25, 1997) was a Russian Kazakhstani mountaineer who made ascents of 10 of the 14 eight-thousander peaks, i.e., peaks above 8,000 m (26,247 ft), without supplemental oxygen. Boukreev had a reputation as an elite mountaineer in international climbing circles for summiting K2 in 1993 and Mount Everest via the North Ridge route in 1995, but became more widely known for his role in saving climbers during the 1996 Mount Everest disaster. In 1997, Boukreev was killed in an avalanche during a winter ascent of Annapurna in Nepal.[Wikipedia] Size: 24 cm tall. Signed by both Authors. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

         Little, Big: The Hardcover Special Edition

      Norwalk, CT: Easton Press(1997). First Edition / First Printing. Fine in No Dust Jacket, As Issued. 538 pages. Rare John Crowley and "Little, Big" collectible item. A fine copy of the Easton Press Collector's Edition, signed by John Crowley. He did NOT sign most copies of the edition. The author's fantasy novel. One of the greatest novels of the 20th century. The Easton Press Collector's Edition. Published in a small and limited one-time-only print run as a hardcover original only that sold out shortly after publication. There is no ISBN. The Collector's Edition is now rare. Its production values are exemplary in every respect: Regular-sized volume format. Black leather boards with gilt design on the cover and gilt titles on the spine, as issued. Text by John Crowley. Exquisite frontispiece by the legendary artist/illustrator Alan Clark. Raised bands. Green satin ribbon marker. Gilt page edges. Smyth-sewn with concealed muslin joints. Printed on pristine-white, archival stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. The "acid-free" paper was milled especially for this edition only, meets the standards of the Council of Library Resources, and appropriately enough, will last 1000 years. Without DJ, as issued. Presents, in its Collector's Edition format, John Crowley's "Little, Big". The grand 20th-century response to Lewis Carroll's 19th-century masterpiece, "Alice's Adventures In Wonderland". Perhaps the greatest modern fantasy novel. With just two words and a comma, the simple title encapsulates the novel's cosmic vision. "Little" is our finite world. "Big" is another, infinitely expanding universe. Within our world, there is another; within that, yet another; and another, AD INFINITUM. At the center, accessible only after several epochs, is the Faerie Realm. Unlike our Hollywood special-effects fantasies, which present the universe rather literally as "outer space", "Little, Big" looks deeply within, and envisions the universe as infinite "inner space". Rather than an image-world, a profound, metaphysical vision is awe-inspiringly evoked whereas "Star Wars" (and all of our other fantasies of life elsewhere) are, in the end, merely projections, however spectacular, of our finite world. "A book that, all by itself, calls for a re-definition of fantasy" (Ursula K. Le Guin). "A neglected masterpiece. The closest achievement we have to the Alice stories of Lewis Carroll" (Harold Bloom). "The best fantasy novel ever. Period" (Thomas Disch). An absolute "must-have" title for John Crowley collectors. This is a copy of the Easton Press Collector's Edition, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in black fountain pen on the title page by John Crowley. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a great book. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the Easton Press First Edition Thus/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Crowley did NOT sign most copies of the Collector's Edition. There are NO copies of the Bantam First Edition online whereas copies of the 1981 First British Edition command up to $1500 (rightly so). This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. One of the greatest novelists of our time. A fine collectible copy. .

         Business, Government, and the End of Empire Malaya, 1942-1957

      Oxford University Press, Kuala Lumpur 1997 - Very often retiring colonial governments are accused of leaving behind a pliable neocolonial elite who will not interfere with existing business and other interests of the former colonists. (The model was trenchantly captured in Tarzie Vittachi's 'The Brown Sahib' about post colonial Ceylon.) In this work White looks at the preparations for the independence of Malaya to determine what, if any, safeguards the departing British put in place to ensure their business and other interests faced minimal disruption after independence. He also looks at the strategies employed by British controlled industry in the period. xxii and 331 pages with tables, figures, 20 black and white plates, appendices, a bibliography and an index.

         Bernd & Hilla Becher: Forderturme (conveyor Towers And Mineheads)

      Munich, Germany: Schirmer/Mosel(1997). First Edition / First Printing. As New in As New Dust Jacket. 196 pages. Collection of landscape-cum-place photographs. One of the most important photography books by Bernd and Hilla Becher. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly the Softcover Edition. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Bernd and Hilla Becher: Oversize-volume format. Black cloth boards with pale gray titles embossed on spine, as issued. Photographs by Bernd and Hilla Becher. Brief Introduction by Klaus Bussmann. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Munich, Germany to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Bernd and Hilla Becher's "Forderturme". Conveyor Towers and Mineheads in Germany, France, Belgium, Great Britain, and the United States, photographed in the most rigorous, taxonomic, and severely beautiful manner. "Vastly influenced the international photography world within the past few decades. Their unique genre of photography is somewhere between topological documentation and art, lining up with the aesthetics of the Neue Sachlichkeit Movement of the 1920's of Karl Blossfeldt, August Sander, and Albert Renger-Patzsch" (Publisher's blurb). As the founders of the "Becher School" (AKA "Dusseldorf School"), they have, in turn, influenced several generations of documentary photographers and artists who have themselves become international superstars: Andreas Gursky, Thomas Ruff, Thomas Struth, Candida Hofer, Axel Hutte, Elger Esser, and even the Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky. "They shot only on overcast days so as to avoid shadows, and early in the morning during the seasons of Spring and Fall. Objects included barns, water towers, coal tipples, cooling towers, grain elevators, coal bunkers, coke ovens, oil refineries, blast furnaces, gas tanks, storage silos, and warehouses. At each site, the Bechers created landscape views of the entire plant, which set the structures in their context and showed how they relate to one another. They excluded any details that would detract from the central theme and instead set up comparisons of viewpoint and lighting through which the eye is led to the basic structural pattern, which is allied to the philosophy and practice of the New Topographics Movement" (Philip Gefter). The Bechers did not invent the grid (Mondrian did), but it is the origin and basis of their aesthetic and practice. The grid remains the most advanced iconography of Modernism. It is THE aesthetic, finally, of purity, of emotional self-regulation, the postponement of instant gratification in exchange for lasting aesthetic reward. Surely, no one (or duo) has pursued this single-minded aesthetic to its logical conclusion in photography as single-mindedly as the Bechers did. An absolute "must-have" title for Bernd and Hilla Becher collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in pencil on the front free endpaper by Bernd and Hilla Becher. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a great art photography book. This is one of very few such double-signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online command as much as $800 even though they have serious flaws ("Near Fine", "Very Good"). A rare signed copy thus. 190 plates. Selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". Winners of the Erasmus Prize, the most prestigious European artistic prize, in 2002. Winners of the Hasselblad Award, the most prestigious photography award, in 2004. Two of the most important and influential photographers of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER BERND AND HILLA BECHER TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 3888148030.

They can be seen as 'note books' – responding spontaneously to our impressions while we were traveling. The situation made us use simple materials, simple techniques, simple forms of book binding.

         Silent Book

      Sao Paulo, Brasil: Cosac & Naify(1997). First Edition / First Printing. As New in No Dust Jacket, As Issued. 98 pages. Artist Book. One of the greatest photography books of the 20th century. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Miguel Rio Branco and Jean-Yves Cousseau: Small-size volume format in square shape. Pictorial hard boards with red titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Miguel Rio Branco. There is no text. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Italy to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Miguel Rio Branco's "Silent Book". Some of the photographer's most stunning images, all of them in "bleed" format. Miguel Rio Branco's work has been hailed for the way it vividly depicts the quiet anguish, carnal sensuality, and explosive violence of Latin America. It is the Latin spirit (rather than the continent itself) that interests him, and he has photographed in Europe to capture this "Latinity". His sequencing of images has also been called "musical". It is not an accident that many of his books include a CD that is put together by him and is meant to be listened to while one views the images. "Silent Book" is the outstanding exception, his tribute to the deafening silence at the heart of his dissonant images. The violence depicted is ritualistic rather than actual (many of the photographs were taken in a boxing gym and at a bullfight) and its true purpose is not, "as some suggest, to incite violence outside, but to mitigate or break the cycle" (Martin Parr and Gerry Badger). A member of Magnum, it is hard to think of him as a documentary photographer. Indeed, his work is about the fundamentally subjective, non-documentary character of reality. The robust and simmering physicality of his images is the work of an artist/photographer who shows the underbelly of Roman Catholicism in all of its "Latinity, an extreme lyricism, contrasting affectivity and violence" (Adolfo Montejo). "My work has a lot to do with skin, for that is the surface connecting us to the world, in pleasure as much as in pain. Skin is a dialogue between outside and inside, a separation that is also a connection" (Miguel Rio Branco). A book of tremendous power and beauty, it pulsates with life and makes most other photography books look and feel lifeless. An absolute "must-have" title for Miguel Rio Branco collectors. This title is a great photography book. This is one of very few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies that occasionally turn up online have all kinds of flaws: Rubbing, bumping, crushing, soiling, you name it. It's probably because it's a small and fragile volume. A rare copy thus. 75 color plates. Miguel Rio Branco's "Silent Book" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest artist/photographer of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER MIGUEL RIO BRANCO, GERARDO SUTER, AND ALEX WEBB TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 8586374210.

         Kaddish For A Child Not Born.

      Evanston, Ill: Hydra Books/ Northwestern University Press, 1997. First edition of Kertesz's mesmerizing novel of identity and memory. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by Imre Kertesz on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Translated from the Hungarian by Christopher C. Wilson and Katharina M. Wilson. Imre Kertész won the 2000 Welt-Literaturpreis and the 2002 Nobel Prize in Literature"for writing that upholds the fragile experience of the individual against the barbaric arbitrariness of history." Kaddish For A Child Not Born is a stunning recitation which ". . . resembles . . . other memorably declamatory fictions as . . . Dostoyevsky's Notes from the Underground. Yes, Kertesz's Kaddish is that good" (Kirkus).
