Diane Arbus: An Aperture Monograph

By Arbus, Diane

NY: Aperture, 1973. Book. Very Good. Trade Paperback. An oversize trade paperback with stiff cardstock covers, a bit larger than standard magazine size. The peculiar subjects and almost bizarre use of simple, unblemished technique distinguish these revelatory photos. In decent shape, no creasing, spine unbent, a trifle worn at cover edges, but lightly so. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately.

Rochester: Silver Pixel, 2000. Book. VG-. Trade Paperback. 1st Edition. 1st US of oversize trade paperback. Cover has a bit of minor scar (sticker removal?) and edgewear.

Flower, Bird and Tree of Kyoto Prefecture

By Kyoto Prefectural Office

Kyoto: Not Stated, 1970. Book. Near Fine. Hardcover. Not Stated. Surely a promotional photographic essay on the region. Magnificent hard cover came from the estate of a noted American politician. Most of the text and captioning seem to be rendered in English and Japanese. Rich violet basketweave cloth exterior with gilt stamping. May have a trace of sunning. Text unmarked, binding sound. Publication data appears to be all in Japanese and therefore not available for this listing. As handsome a photographing of Japanese design and architecture as I have ever come across. Date given is a guess as none is given in English in the text. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately.

Polonia Secondo Millennio

By Vecchi, Mariapia

Milano: Silvana Editoriale D'arte, 1970. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Signed by Author(s). First Edition. This large format photography title is too large for flat rate international shipping at our customary prices. It is warmly inscribed and dated to Senator Frank Church on the 1/2 title page. Book by famed Italian photographer Vecchi is a photographic tribute to Poland done on this occasion. The book's sole notable flaw is a bit of sunning, otherwise it is in clean attractive shape, with no binding flaws. No prior or later printings are referenced and it seems to be correct for a first edition (1970) of this work. Vecchi's inscription is dated 1979. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately. Books listed by Brass Dolphin are so described, and graded, using the strict, traditional standards. For this reason, we have virtually zero returns.*.

A pictorial covered, clean, unbumped copy, initial gatefold looks perfect. Not a Fine copy but stands close.

Himmel Erde Franken Land

By Neukamp, Ernst and Gomringer, Eugen

Oberfrankische Verlagsanstalt Und Druckerei GmbH, 1981. Book. Near Fine. Hardcover. Presume 1st, No Addl. Printings. A tall slender volume of shockingly beautiful photos and text, 12" tall x 8" wide. Having no German I'd be hard pressed to say anything abouth this item, which certainly seems to be scarce. It seems possible that it was meant as some manner of promotional item, Jacket unpriced, there is label laid on front of jacket which says, "Von Der Stif tung Buchkunst Pramiert." and "eines de schonsten bucher." The books sole flaw, though I don't think it is actually a flaw at all, is an ultra mild trace of wave, not due to atmospherics I think, but characteristics of the sort of slick heavy oversize text this is done up in. The jacket has the kind of ultra mild scuff that might even be foun on some new copies, no tears or soiling, in mylar wrapper. Overall crisp, bright, tight. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately. Books listed by Brass Dolphin are so described, and graded, using the strict, traditional standards. For this reason, we have virtually zero returns.*.
