         David Bowie - The Jean Genie.

      (Brighton): Self-published 2006 - SIGNED by the photographer. From Ian Dickson's 'Collector's Series'; a range of handmade box sets, each title containing seven hand-printed images in signed mounts; offered in Standard, Digital or DeLuxe (best) edition. The Jean Genie comprises six silver gelatine prints and one colour digital print of David Bowie live in concert (02/06/72 and 07/01/73), during the classic Ziggy Stardust / Spiders era; this is the superior De Luxe edition which uses fibre-based prints (instead of resin-coated), in hinged archival mounts (instead of standard mounts). This is copy no.3 of an unspecified edition number (perhaps fewer than 10 examples), the series now having been discontinued by the publisher due to production costs and time constraints. The mounted photographs are contained in archival quality polyester sleeves with a frame dimension of 11 x 14 inches. Housed in a custom-made, illustrated clamshell box (a rather ad-hoc production assembled by Dickson himself) with a numbered certificate affixed to the underside of the lid. The highly individual cover art is by famed cartoonist/illustrator Ray Lowry and a short but entertaining biography of the photographer 'Hired Gun' (also with Lowry-designed cover) completes the attractive package. A fine copy. Ian Dickson has been photographing rock stars since 1972 and his work has appeared in Disc, Record Mirror, New Musical Express, Sounds, Vox, Mojo, Q, Rolling Stone and elsewhere. His first exhibition was in London in 1992 and several successful European shows followed. In 1994, a selection of his work was shown at the MTV Awards in Berlin, at the Brit Awards at Alexandra Palace, and at the World Music Awards in Monte Carlo and Copenhagen. A feature on his portfolio was published in the March 1995 issue of Q magazine and in August that year, he was recognised by the 'Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum' who included his famous Rod Stewart 'pyjama' portrait; this was followed by an Eric Clapton and a Muddy Waters portrait, added in February 2000.

         Johnson's Dictionary Limited Edition

      Folio Society, London 2006 - 2006 First Thus. 2 Fine Hardbacks. No inscriptions or bookplates. Fine slipcase. Large 4to. Limited edition of 1000 copies and a few lettered copies of which this is number 804. Two volumes. 1,164 pages each. 16¼" x 10¼". Exact facsimile reproduced from the first edition, title page printed in two colours on Favini cream paper. Two ribbon markers per volume. Three-quarter bound in calf leather with hand-marbled paper sides. Presented in a robust buckram-bound box with scalloped edges and volume divider. A DICTIONARY OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE: In Which the Words are Deduced From Their Originals, AND ILLUSTRATED IN THEIR DIFFERENT SIGNIFICATIONS, BY EXAMPLES FROM THE BEST WRITER. To Which are Prefixed, A History of the Language, and an English Grammar: IN TWO VOLUMES. This, the full title of the work now known as Johnson's Dictionary, exemplifies what is special about the book: no mere collection of word definitions, but a larger work, bold in aims, broad in purpose. Johnson had an appreciation for the beauties of fine language and a knowledge of literature surpassed by none. Even today, the quotations he chose read like a succinct overview of the canon of great English literature. Yet Johnson's Dictionary was also a living work; a picture of his age as well as a work of great intellectual rigour, a milestone in the development of the English language. Alongside literary language were slang terms, sudden interjections of the rough and tumble of the city amongst the measured classical lines of poetry. If language is forever changing, then a dictionary can never be finished. Nearly thirty years after its first publication, Johnson was still making revisions at the time of his death. Proof, if any were needed, of how close the Dictionary was to his heart. 'The work of a single person and composed in a period of time very inconsiderable when compared with the extent of the work' ADAM SMITH REVIEWING THE DICTIONARY IN 1755. Samuel Johnson's achievement can hardly be overstated. The great European dictionaries of societies such as the Académie Française and the Accademia della Crusca were produced by entire teams of scholars and generously funded, whereas Johnson worked practically alone. Dr Johnson's Dictionary has become part of the lexicon of Western culture. Robert Browning claimed to have read it 'in its entirety' to 'qualify' himself as a poet, while authors as diverse as Charles Darwin, Charlotte Brontë and Samuel Becket have referred to it, and indeed plundered its pages. So symbolic of authority and learning did the Dictionary become that, in Vanity Fair , Thackeray mischievously mocked the esteem in which 'The Great Lexicographer' was held, even having Becky Sharp hurl the dictionary from a carriage window. (Since the first edition weighs almost 26 pounds, Thackeray was presumably thinking of an abridged version.) Johnson's definitions are sometimes personal, revealing his prejudices and enthusiasms. His conservative politics and sincere High Church religious affiliation alongside his half-teasing, half-sincere strictures on Scotland form the basis for the famous definitions for oats, Tory and Whig. These revelations are engaging - as Johnson scholar Robert DeMaria comments, 'You get very close to the life of the mind of someone if you try to follow their reading habits.' The first edition of Johnson's Dictionary went on sale on 14 June 1755 at £4 10s. This was an impressively hefty sum. £4 was over a third of a housekeeper's salary for the year, while a maidservant was only paid £1 15s. A year. Even for a wealthy, established lawyer, the Dictionary would have represented an entire week's wages - perhaps equivalent to £3,000 in today's money. Those first editions nowadays sell at auction for around £10,000-£15,000, so perhaps the investment might eventually have seemed worthwhile. Producing Johnson's Dictionary: Copies of the original dictionary were hand-bound to order for the purchasers. Likewise, the Folio Society facsimile [Attributes: Soft Cover]

         SELIGMAN'S Encyclopaedia of the Social Sciences. Set in 15 Volumes in 30 Parts

      COSMO PUBLICATIONS, 2006 In the making of the Encyclopaedia we have had three purposes in mind. In the first place it is intended to provide for the scholar a synopsis of the progress that has been made in the various fields of social science in the broadest sense of the term. The student of any particular science should not only find here factual and methodological information of value, but will also have his attention called, perhaps in a hitherto unusual way, to the relation of his own science to the other disciplines involved. What is probably more important at this time, when such rapid advance is being made in more or less untrodden paths, the Ency¬clopaedia may be expected to serve as an incentive to the votaries of the younger and more inchoate sciences in order to bring to fruition what is now only in germ.Secondly, the Encyclopaedia will, it is hoped, appeal to a much more numerous class which for lack of a better term might be called the intelligentsia in the various countries. It ought to furnish an assemblage or repository of facts and principles which will subserve the interests of all those who are keeping abreast of recent investigation and accomplishment. It is for this reason that we have made every effort to keep the articles free from all scientific jargon.Finally, amid the welter and confusion of modern thought, it has been our hope that the Encyclopaedia would constitute a center of authoritative knowledge for the creation of a sounder and more informed public opinion on the major questions which lie at the foundation of social progress and world development. -- THE EDITOR-IN-CHIEF.Editorial Board and Contributors include the major figures in the 20th Century Social Research. These include scholars like Franz Boas, John Dewey, Alfred Kroeber, J. M. Keynes, R. H. Tawney, Ruth Benedict, John Maynard, Brovislaw Malinowski, Margret Mead, Joseph Needham, Edwin Sapir and many more academic luminariesBOARD OF DIRECTORS AcademicFRANZ BOASWALTER WHEELER COOKJOHN DEWEYJOHN A.

         Zelluläre Diagnostik: Grundlagen, Methoden und klinische Anwendungen der Durchflusszytometrie [Gebundene Ausgabe] Ulrich Sack (Herausgeber), Attila Tarnok (Herausgeber), Gregor Rothe (Herausgeber) Zelluläre Diagnostik Grundlagen Methoden und klinische Anwendungen der Durchflusszytometrie

      Karger, 2006. Das vorliegende Buch ist die einzige umfassende, deutschsprachige Darstellung der Durchflusszytometrie und ihrer Anwendungen. Während einige Techniken der Immunphänotypisierung mit der Durchflusszytometrie bereits zu Routineverfahren in der Laboratoriumsmedizin geworden sind, beginnen sich neue Methoden der funktionellen Charakterisierung von Zellen, der Analyse seltener Zellen und der Diagnostik aus komplexen Materialien erst zu etablieren. Durch neue Ansätze wie die objektträgergebundene Zytometrie wird der Einsatz dieser Verfahren weiter zunehmen. Multiparameteranalysen und Miniaturisierung sind weitere Schritte zur Verbesserung der Analytik. Das Buch bietet eine umfassende, fundierte und detaillierte Zusammenstellung aller Aspekte der Durchflusszytometrie in Forschung und Klinik. Neueinsteigern gibt es eine fundierte Einführung, fortgeschrittenen Anwendern spezielle Protokolle und Interpretationshilfen.

         Hedda Morrison's Hong Kong 1946

      Hongkong Conservation Photography Foundation, 2006. 142 pages. Text in English and Chinese. An abridged edition of "Hedda Morrison's Hong Kong, Photographs & Impressions 1946-47" published by Hong Kong University Press. "In September 1946, when Hedda Morrison reached Hong Kong, it remained little changed from decades earlier. Acclaimed for her images of China taken in the 1930s and 1940s, she delighted in recording the patterns of everyday life. Now, captivated by Hong Kong and its people, she embraced the colony's diversity. For six months, cameras in hand, she roamed its districts, streets, coasts and valleys. This book records the people and places she encountered." - from dust jacket. Clean, bright and unmarked with very light wear. Dust jacket now preserved in archival-grade Brodart. A high-quality of this wonderful work.

         Time

      Ostfildern-ruit, Germany: Hatje Cantz Publishers(2006). First Edition / First Printing. As New in As New Dust Jacket. 160 pages. Exhibition Monograph, presented as an Artist Book. One of the most beautiful books on the art of Christian Boltanski. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Christian Boltanski: Oversize-volume format. Blue hard boards with titles embossed on cover and spine, as issued. Art by Christian Boltanski. Essays by Aleida Assmann and Ralf Beil. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Germany to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name held at the Institut Mathildenhohe Darmstadt from November 12, 2006 through February 11, 2007. Presents Christian Boltanski's "Time". New work as well as previous work in a new light. The title comes from his site-specific installation, "Zeit", which serves as the exhibition's starting point. The emphasis Boltanski places on the most fragile objects, particularly photographs, to evoke our "struggle against death" (his phrase) is the central idea behind his sublime art. As such, Boltanski's work is not "about" death but "against" it, through art rather than polemics. His obsession with death is often mistakenly seen as acceptance or even embrace of it when as Boltanski himself repeatedly says, the role of memory is to insist on the sanctity of human life, that whenever we remember those who have died, we remember their lives, not their death, and that memorial, archive, and elegy, which all pause Time, ultimately affirm Life. At the same time, Boltanski acknowledges, more than any other artist of our time, that death is a fact of life, and that even as we struggle against it, we intuitively realize from a series of "death experiences" throughout our lives (the end of childhood, the death of a loved one, the end of a friendship, romance, or marriage, extreme physical and psychological violence) that denying the reality of death is more dangerous than our fear of it. "I am for an art that is sentimental. I want to make people cry. Art should create emotions. The task is to create a formal work that is, at the same time, recognized by the spectator as a sentimentally charged object. Everyone will recognize their own history, their own world, which is more felt than perceived. The artist is someone who holds a mirror and those who look in the mirror recognize themselves but each one sees a different image" (Christian Boltanski). An absolute "must-have" title for Christian Boltanski collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Christian Boltanski. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a great art and photography book. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. One of the greatest artists of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER CHRISTIAN BOLTANSKI TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 3775718257.

         Come Again: Polaroids By Robert Frank

Retrospective collection of Polaroid photographs. The First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions.

His "Lebanon Polaroids", assembled by the photographer in one Notebook. The original remains in his possession. This Facsimile Edition reproduces its visual, even tactile subtleties, with the varnish coating, in particular, mimicking the Polaroid print's glossy finish. "In 1991, Robert Frank went to Beirut to photograph the city's devastation after the Civil War (1975-1990). He also made Polaroids which, upon his return home, he kept for himself. Many years later, he looked at those images again, and decided to create a sketchbook's worth of Polaroids. Robert Frank has worked almost exclusively with Polaroid in recent years, exploring the collage and assemblage possibilities of the instant photograph" (Gerhard Steidl). Frank's images of a devastated land capture in a rigorous documentary format a universal human tragedy as well as his own personal turmoil and pain. "He can portray real pain and capture profound depths of human emotion better than almost any other photographer; indeed, better than almost any other artist in any medium" (Martin Parr and Gerry Badger). An absolute "must-have" title for Robert Frank collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Robert Frank. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is an art photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the First Edition/First Printing available online, is still in the publisher's original plastic wrappers, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: The photographer is notoriously averse to any kind of signing, but he made a very rare public appearance in New York City in conjunction with the book's publication. He signed copies for some people who waited patiently in line then abruptly and inexplicably left before he could sign the rest. Signed Robert Franks are rare, command as much as $20000 online even if they are not in fine condition, and will always keep their value. A rare signed copy thus. 24 quadrotone plates. Three of Robert Frank's books were selected as among the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". At the age of 92, Robert Frank was profiled in 2016 by The New York Times as "the greatest photographer of our time". A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ROBERT FRANK TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 3865212611.

         The Idiot: The Penguin Books 60th Anniversary Artist Book

      London, England: Penguin/Penguin Designer Classics(2006). First Edition / First Printing. As New in As New Dust Jacket. 704 pages. Artist Book. One of the most beautiful Artist Book interpretations of the classic ever created. Limited Edition of one numbered and signed copy. Should not be confused with the Limited Edition of 1000 copies. A brilliant production by Ron Arad: Oversize-volume format. Text by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Art by Ron Arad. White cardboard box. Printed on archival acid-free stock paper in the United Kingdom to absolutely the highest standards. In transparent Plexiglas ("Perspex") box, which serves as the book's DJ. Rather than just an outer slipcase, it is completely integral to the book. Published on the occasion of Penguin Book's 60th Anniversary, "The Idiot" is one of five classics that the publisher issued in a Limited Edition by commissioning five of the world's most important artists in their respective fields. The other titles are Gustave Flaubert's "Madame Bovary", D. H. Lawrence's "Lady Chatterley's Lover", F. Scott Fitzgerald's "Tender Is The Night: A Romance", and Fyodor Dostoyevsky's "Crime And Punishment" (he is the only novelist to be honored with two masterpieces in the Series). Penguin held a global auction of the "Number 1" signed copy of each title on the day of its 60th Anniversary in 2006. "Arad's book has no cover so the reader will pick it up and read the author's first words. It is stripped back to show the glue and thread in the spine which is visible through an acrylic slipcase with a fresnel lens so the text appears to move as the lid is removed" (Publisher's blurb). "By not wanting to have a cover, it ended with the book becoming an amazing object that is alive, but which maintains its transparency. It becomes a glorious box with a book inside, almost like a monument" (Ron Arad). Said like a true architect who has worked for the Metropolitan Museum of Art New York, the Centre Georges Pompidou Paris, the Vitra Design Museum Germany, and the Victoria & Albert Museum London. The ultimate book-as-object, the literary classic-as-work-of-art, worthy of this auspicious celebration and posterity. An absolute "must-have" edition for Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Ron Arad, and art/graphic design collectors. This copy is Number 1, indicated as such on the Back Limitation Page, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the first page by Ron Arad. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. By special arrangement with Penguin, Arad signed only the first copy of the Limited Edition, an instant collectible. This is the only signed copy available anywhere and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare, one-of-a-kind signed copy thus. One of the greatest novels of all time, re-interpreted by one of the most brilliant architect/designers of our time. A flawless collectible copy.

        Tender Is The Night: The Penguin Books 60th Anniversary Artist Book

      London, England: Penguin/Penguin Designer Classics(2006). First Edition / First Printing. As New in As New Dust Jacket. 346 pages. Artist Book. One of the most beautiful Artist Book interpretations of the classic ever created. Limited Edition of one numbered and signed copy. Should not be confused with the Limited Edition of 1000 copies. A brilliant production by Sam Taylor-Wood: Oversize-volume format. Black silk cloth boards, as issued. Text by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Art by Sam Taylor-Wood. She utilizes one of her most austerely beautiful photographs on glassine paper that serves as the Artist Book's translucent inner DJ. White cardboard box. Printed on archival acid-free stock paper in the United Kingdom to the highest standards. In transparent Plexiglas ("Perspex") box, which serves as the book's outer DJ. Published on the occasion of Penguin Book's 60th Anniversary, "Tender Is The Night: A Romance" is one of five classics that the publisher issued in a Limited Edition by commissioning five of the world's most important artists in their respective fields.

Penguin held a global auction of the "Number 1" signed copy of each title on the day of its 60th Anniversary in 2006. Sam Taylor-Wood shows "an elegant young man as he stands before us with his hands in his pocket and bare feet. He perfectly sums up the elegance and fragility of Nicole and Dick Driver's world" (Publisher's blurb). Sam Taylor-Wood is one of our finest living artist/photographers. She is especially noted for her portraits of ordinary subjects as well as the most well-known celebrities of the day. Many consider her to be the natural successor to Avedon and Annie Leibovitz, but that judgment, while flattering, does not do justice to the singular qualities of her work. The ultimate book-as-object, the literary classic-as-work-of-art, worthy of this auspicious celebration and posterity. An absolute "must-have" edition for F. Scott Fitzgerald and Sam Taylor-Wood collectors. This copy is Number 1, indicated as such on the Front Limitation Page, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen by Sam Taylor-Wood.
