    MIGUEL RIO BRANCO: MATADOR by Branco, Miguel Rio

    New York City, NY: Magnum Editions/Miguel Rio Branco, 2016. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. As New/No Dust Jacket, As Issued.. New York City, NY: Magnum Editions/Miguel Rio Branco, 2016. Hardcover. As New/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. 1 pages. Rare Miguel Rio Branco collectible item. A pristine copy of his "Matador" original color print, signed by Miguel Rio Branco. The print measures 6 X 6 inches. Enclosed in its own inner protective plastic sheet and outer cardboard flat box. Processed on FujiColor paper. Eminently suitable for framing. Without DJ, as issued. Presents, in a collectible format, Miguel Rio Branco's "Matador". One of the photographer's single most beautiful images. It perfectly captures Rio Branco's aesthetic. His 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". 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). The only American photographer whose work is of comparable power, beauty, and anguish is Alex Webb, who was clearly influenced by Rio Branco. An absolute "must-have" collectible, not just memorabilia, item for Miguel Rio Branco collectors. <b><i> This original color print is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on verso by Miguel Rio Branco. This image is a Rio Branco classic. As far as we know, this is the only print available online, is enclosed in its own inner protective plastic sheet and outer cardboard flat box, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: Rio Branco prints command thousands of dollars from his galleries. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed print thus. </b></i> 1 original color print. Miguel Rio Branco's "Silent Book" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest artist/photographers of our time. A flawless collectible print.

    NEWSPAPER PORTRAIT INSCRIBED TO FUTURE NEW YORK POLITICIAN SEYMOUR HALPERN ON THE VERSO AND SIGNED BY WILLIAM HOPE "COIN" HARVEY, A LEADING ADVOCATE OF COINAGE OF SILVER INTO MONEY. by Harvey, William Hope. (1851-1936). Known as "Coin" Harvey, he was a leading advocate of the use of silver as legal tender

    Circa [1930].. [1930].. Very good. - Portrait, approximately 5 inches high by 3-3/8 inches wide, clipped from a newspaper and mounted on a piece of card 6-5/8 inches high by 5 inches wide. Inscribed & signed on the verso in black ink: "To / Seymour Halpern / with my best wishes / W H Harvey". There is some minor soiling to the mount & a small area of the surface of its bottom edge is rubbed away. Very good. <p>William Hope Harvey [1851-1936] was an American lawyer, author, politician and health resort owner. Known as "Coin" Harvey, he is best remembered as a leading promoter of the use of silver as legal tender. He adopted the view that the demonetization of silver through the Coinage Act of 1873 was extremely harmful to the economy, which went through a series of depressions and recessions in the last quarter of the 19th century. He advocated a return to the unlimited coinage of silver into money and authored his popular 1894 pamphlet "Coin's Financial School" to advance this policy.<p>The Queens, New York Republican Congressman Seymour Halpern (1913-1997) started his political career as a campaign aide to New York's powerful mayor Fiorella La Guardia and first served in New York's State Senate for 14 years before seeking a seat in the U.S. Congress. In Albany Halpern sponsored 279 bills that became law, including measures on schools, housing, civil rights, nutrition and mental health. A Liberal, he was something of an anomaly as the lone Republican representative from New York City, and generally garnered support from Labor Unions and endorsement from the Liberal Party. Yet he never even considered switching parties as he considered membership in the Republican Party a family tradition and commitment. While he found ample time for his private pursuits, including painting and collecting autographs, he took his legislative duties very seriously. Of these, he was proudest of his co- sponsorship of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and of the original 1965 Medicare legislation.

    Brantome: The Writer as Portraitist of His Age by Cottrell, R D

    Librairie Droz. PAPERBACK. 2600038914 1970 signed presentation copy, first edition Librairie Droz (Geneva, Switzerland), 4 5/8 x 7 inches tall paperbound in yellow printed covers, 169 pp. plus colophon. Slight soiling, rubbing and edgewear to covers. Nicely inscribed and signed by the author on the blank front free-endpaper. Very slight age toning. Otherwise, a very good copy - clean and unmarked. ~HHH~ Pierre de Bourdeille, seigneur (and abbe) de Brantome (circa 1540 - 1614) was a French historian, soldier and biographer. A fall from his horse compelled him to retire into private life about 1589, and he spent his last years in writing his Memoirs of the illustrious men and women whom he had known. de Bourdeille can hardly be regarded as a historian proper, and his Memoirs cannot be accepted as a very trustworthy source of information. But he writes in a quaint conversational way, pouring forth his thoughts, observations or facts without order or system, and with the greatest frankness and naivete. His works certainly gave an admirable picture of the general court-life of the time, with its unblushing and undisguised profligacy. There is not an homme illustre or a dame galante in all his gallery of portraits who hasn't engaged in what Medieval Christian prescriptions as well as the Victorian society would regard as sexual immorality; and yet the whole is narrated with the most complete unconsciousness that there is anything objectionable in their conduct. . Very Good. 1970. First Edition.
