ODDITIES & RARITIES: Interesting First Editions (not signed or limited)

All hardcovers in dust jackets unless otherwise noted.

BETTS, MOFF >> THE HUMAN BODY: A BASIC GUIDE TO THE WAY YOU'RE PUT TOGETHER >> $10; a beautiful hardcover that's got a McSweeney's feel, in a square format with gorgeous black-and-white illos and just cool beyond belief. In the series from Wooden Books. Just lovely.

BUCHNER, GEORG >> LENZ >> $38; Archipelago Books, a lovely, pristine first edition trade paperback with French flaps from this amazing book-maker. Georg Buchner's visionary exploration of an 18th century playwright's descent into madness, grew in part out of Alsatian pastor Oberlin's journal, which is translated here in its entirety for the first time. Lenzis a dispassionate account on the nervous system of a schizophrenic, perhaps the first third-person text ever written from the "inside" of insanity. At his death at the age of 23 in 1837, Georg Buchner also left behind Leonce and Lena, Woyzeck, and Danton's Death--psychologically and politically acute plays well ahead of their time. Richard Sieburth's translations include Friedrich Holderlin's Hymns and Fragments, Walter Benjamin's Moscow Diary, Gerard de Nerval's Selected Writings and Henri Michaux's Emergences/Resurgences. Includes the German and the English.

RUTLEDGE, BRUCE (editor) >> KUHAKU >> $45; a gorgeous first edition with cloth hardcover boards embossed. Stunning book. Travel past the temples and tourist sites and into the mind of modern Japan with this anthology of essays. This first offering from Chin Music Press is the literary equivalent of a knockdown pitch. Sixteen stories and essays by different writers destroy the many stereotypes about Japan. Say farewell to Madame Butterfly and the samurai ethic, and say hello to a complex nation that makes both a frustrating and fascinating home. This collection includes stories on everything from taking out the garbage to cheating on your spouse. It also has an irreverent and informative glossary of real-world Japanese terms, four-color artwork and a Zen whiskey priest who would make Graham Greene proud.

YELLIN, TAMAR >> THE GENIZAH AT THE HOUSE OF SHEPHER >> $20; Toby Press, in pristine condition, brand new, first edition, in dust jacket. The multiple-prize-winning novel picked up for reprint by St. Martin's Press: "Shulamit, a biblical scholar from England, returns to her grandparents' home in Jerusalem for a visit after an absence of many years. Almost immediately she becomes embroiled in a family feud over possession of the so-called Shepher Codex, a mysterious and valuable manuscript which has been discovered in the attic. In tracing the origins of the Codex she uncovers the history of the Shepher family itself: of her great-grandfather, who traveled to Babylon in search of the ten lost tribes; of her grandfather, a dreamer whose Zionist ideals brought him into conflict with his religion; of her parents, and their tormented love affair; and of her own orphaned and unhappy past. At the same time, she struggles to find answers to pressing questions: what is the significance of the Codex and where does it come from? Who is the stranger, Gideon, who is desperate to enlist her help? Above all, whom does the Codex belong to and what part must Shula play in its destiny? Set against the backdrop of a changing Jerusalem over a hundred and thirty years, The Genizah at the House of Shepher is a large-canvas novel of exile and belonging, displacement, and the quest for both love and a true promised land. A scholar, returning to her family home in Jerusalem becomes embroiled in a family dispute over a discovered Codex, brought home originally her great-great grandfather. Set against the backdrop pf a hundred and thirty years of change, this is a novel of exile and belonging, displacement and the quest for both love and a true promised land."

Coffee Table Books from $4 and up:

BASE, GRAEME >> THE WORSE BAND IN THE UNIVERSE >> $12; from Abrams, with unopened CD, this is the guy who gave us Animalia.

BERMAN, CARL >> PEOPLE OF THE HIGH PLATEAU >> $3, from Airlife, documenting in paintings and text people who live where the air is thin and the hallucinations come easy.

CRISPOLTI, ENRICO, EDITOR >> ERNST, MIRO, AND THE SURREALISTS >> $10, from Bloomsbury, art by Ernst, Miro, etc., with commentary. A handsome book.

DODD, PHILIP >> THE BOOK OF ROCK >> $5; from Thunder's Mouth Press, a thick bulldog of a soft cover with tons of photos and recollections, with a red remainder mark, alas. Otherwise, we'd be selling it much higher. It's beautifully designed.

DOONAN, SIMON >> CONFESSIONS OF A WINDOW DRESSER >> $12; from Calloway Press, "Involved in the cutting edge of fashion, design, and pop culture for twenty years, Doonan has collaborated with the biggest names in the fashion world--Lagerfield, Lacroix, and Armani--and worked with the most notorious names in the art world--Mapplethorpe, Rauschenberg, and La-Chapelle. Whether making fun of blondes, sending up Sigmund Freud in Neurotic Yule, or creating caricatures of celebrities--such as Dan Quayle (paired with a giant Mr. Potato Head in a dunce cap)--Doonan's windows have been sometimes irreverent, yet always fearless and entertaining." The dust jacket is torn, but the boards reproduce the same image, somewhat mitigating this disadvantage. The book itself is in excellent condition.

HARPER, PRUDENCE ET AL >> ROYAL CITY OF SUSA: ANCIENT NEAR EASTERN TREASURES IN THE LOUVRE >> $20, from Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1993, published on the occasion of an exhibition of objects on loan from the Louvre to the MMA.

LAMBRAY, MAUREEN >> THE AMERICAN FILM DIRECTORS, VOLUME 1 >> $15, from Collier Books, a little worn around the edges (it is 30 years old) and a little bit of price tag glue that'll be gone by the time it gets to you in your ancestral home with the ivy creeping up the walls. Photographer Maureen Lambray explored an essential moment in American film by photographing some of the great Hollywood directors such as George Cukor, Billy Wilder, and Frank Capra. She also captured young rising stars such as Martin Scorsese and Robert Altman. Great black-and-white art in soft cover.

LONDON, ROSE >> CINEMA OF MYSTERY >> $4; 112 pages, mostly black-and-white, a history of horror films. Ann wrote her name in the book, on the inside front cover, but otherwise it's in very good shape.

NINTH LETTER >> NINTH LETTER, VOL. 3, NO. 1 AND 2 >> $3.50 each, from University of Illinois, 2006-07, a literary magazine that as a hugely oversized softcover of almost 200 pages each looks more like...a coffee table book. Poetry, art, fiction, and essays from a variety of cool literary figures like Michael Martone, Roy Kesey, Josh Ames, Elizabeth Bell, etc., but the reader's eye is as drawn to the cool graphics and art as the text. Nice, aggressive, sometimes experimental layout. A few pages are dog-eared in vol. 3, no. 1. Normally costs $10 per issue.

O'KEEFE, GEORGIA >> GEORGIA O'KEEFE: THE NEW YORK YEARS >> $34, from Knopf, a fine, large--very very large (16 x 13 1/2)--book on early Abstract American painter Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986); two specialists spotlight her years in New York between her arrival in 1905, her fateful meeting with Alfred Stieglitz and her rise to fame in the 1920's - a groundbreaking analysis of O'Keeffe's work by art historian Bram Dijkstra. With huge, spectacular color plates. The dust jacket has some scuffs. On the inside front cover, there is an inscription from Jeff.

OWEN, WILLIAM >> MODERN MAGAZINE DESIGN >> $65, from Rizzoli, 1991. STILL in shrinkwrap, never opened, in pristine condition, including the dust jacket. Part one concentrates on the history of design, illustrated magazines and the photographic movement, photojournalism between the wars, the first age of the art director: Cleland, Agha and Brodovitch, the New York School 1945 - 68 etc. Part two discusses the cover, photography and illustration, magazines for the electronic age including examples of Emigré, Tatler, and the Face. This is a steal at this price.

PARMALEE, DAVID F. >> BIRD ISLAND IN ANTARCTIC WATERS >> $8, from University of Minnesota Press, the adventures of an artist/ornithologist on a lonely outcrop in the far South Atlantic. Yeah, the guy almost goes crazy, but gets a book out of it. It's a first edition. Possibly the only edition. We bought it for $20, so we're not ripping you off...

PIADE, LYNN >> CITIZEN KANE: HOLLYWOOD CLASSICS >> $5, from Smithmark, documenting how the movie was made, with copious full-page, sharp black-and-white stills from the movie and from the set.

PIGNATTI, TERISO >> MASTER DRAWINGS: FROM CAVE ART TO PICASSO >> $25; from Wellfleet Press, a comprehensive and gorgeous book with hundreds of full-color plates and well-written essays. Inscription and name on the inside of the boards; otherwise, perfect.

REILLY, WILLIAM >> VANISHING EDEN: THE PLIGHT OF THE TROPICAL RAINFOREST >> $30; from the Barrons educational series, a collection of wonderful photos that show what we still can see of our global natural heritage. Nice picture of Olivia Newton-John in the forward, which she wrote.

REISS, DAVID, EDITOR >> MASH: THE EXCLUSIVE INSIDE STORY >> $5; everything you ever wanted to know about the TV show in 160 pages of soft cover text and black-and-white photos, published in 1980.

RENSE, PAIGE, EDITOR >> DESIGNER'S OWN HOMES >> $6; from Architectural Digest, private residences of 30 of the leading designers from the 80s. Great photos and really funny to see what they thought was good design back then. A bump on the front board, reflected on the dust jacket, but hard to see unless you're looking.

ROMANELLI, GIANDOMENICO, EDITOR >> VENICE: ART & ARCHITECTURE >> $70; from Konemann, a 2-volume set in slipcase featuring hundreds and hundreds of full-color photographs and illustrations, with text. Oversized hardcovers. Dustjackets of both volumes are pristine, as are the books themselves. The slipcase is torn and will need to be repaired. Vol I is "devoted to the artistic history of Venice from its beginnings in the Lagoon region, even before the emergence of Venice as a name, to the 16th century. Particular attention given to the development of mosaic art." Vol II "explores the period from the 17th to the 20th centuries.".

SCHIFF, NANCY >> ODD JOBS >> $8; from Ten Speed Press, those insane bastards. If you hate your job, just be glad you don't sniff armpits for a living. Apparently, if a woman sniffs a man's armpit for 6 hours, it has a calming effect. It's just the first 5 hours and 59 minutes that are excruciating. Anyway, this fascinating and compact hardcover includes really good black-and-white full-page photos with text describing jobs that you'd mostly rather not have.

SLOWINSKI >> SLOWINSKI >> $65, from Direct Art Books, with an introduction by Andre Codrescu. The iconic and insane art of this extremely talented creator. It looks a little like a surreal Sendak for adults. We're selling it $15 below the ABE price. Cover printed on the boards. A political artist in addition to being an American Surrealist. Very original.

Anyway, interesting book, all blurbs aside.

CAWS, MARY ANN ET AL, EDITORS >> SURREALISM AND WOMEN >> $6; new from MIT press, in pristine condition, first edition: a series of fascinating essays that outline exactly how the male version of surrealism acted to repress women by demoting them to second-class creators or "muses". It's all cogent and intelligent stuff, and I tend to agree with it. That's one reason why it's so satisfying to see someone like Angela Carter take surrealism and turn it on its head.

KUSPIT, DONALD >> THE DIALECTIC OF DECADENCE >> $4; Allworth Press, first edition with French flaps: "Kuspit provocatively disentangles misconceptions of decadence generated by the notion of advance in art. He asserts that any attempt in modern art to renounce expressionism and the pursuit of meaning in figurative art is in itself a result of discontent and decadence - a loss of faith in history to tell its own story. Using a psychoanalytic approach, Kuspit topples Minimalist decrees most forcefully expressed by Donald Judd. Kuspit demonstrates that the ‘decadent’ pursuits of artists like Sandro Chia and George Baselitz are rooted in the avant-garde unconscious. He gracefully demonstrates how modern art’s internal battle with decadence is in fact a battle with itself, its own cause for existence." Honestly, it's an interesting book.
