Cambridge, MA, Munich, GERMANY & New York: Harvard University Graduate School of Design & Prestel Verlag, 2001. First Edition. 8vo. Illustrated Wrappers. Architecture Monograph. Fine. 132pp, profusely illustrated in color and b&w. "This volume explores an unbuilt yet iconic project by Le Corbusier and its visual representation. The Venice Hospital is the uncontested epitome of the "mat", or carpet, building type - a low sprawling structure developed in the late 1950s and 1960s that is making a strong comeback in contemporary architecture. Planned in 1965 for the arsenal area at the edge of the city, the hospital was designed to extend the city's roads and canal networks, while simultaneously turning in on itself to create flexible, quasi-urban environments in the form of endlessly repeating courtyards. Upon Le Corbusier's death in 1965, Guillermo Jullian de la Fuente was commissioned to complete the building. However, due to changes in city government, the project was eventually abandoned. This study investigates this canonic example of Le Corbusier's late work and includes an account of de la Fuente's involvement in the project, previously unpublished drawings from his archive, and a reprint of Alison Smithson's seminal essay on "mat" buildings".

First Edition. Oblong Folio. Wrappers in Printed Box. Photography Monograph. Near Fine/No Jacket - As Issued. np (40 + 32 + 6pp), 20 color and 10 b&w illustrations. Text in German. Designed by Kuhle und Mozer. Published in conjunction with a 1995 exhibition at Portikus Frankfurt am Main, this elegant, ambitiously designed, oversized publication is devoted to Andreas Gursky's monumental photograph of architect Jean Dubuisson's quarter-mile long Montparnasse housing block. A single 10 1/4 x 18 3/4" color reproduction on heavy stock is laid into a silver folder that bears the names of the more than seven hundred and fifty families inhabiting the massive housing project. This is accompanied by two booklets in silver wrappers: "Texte" - which contains an essay by Hans Irrek as well as interviews with Dubuisson and three Montparnasse dwellers, and "Images" - which reproduces grainy full page voyeuristic blown-up details of interiors of the individual apartments. These three printed components are housed in a shallow printed cardboard box. The interior contents are all in Near Fine condition with no notable flaws. The matte black paper-covered lower portion of the box along with the silver lid show some light overall wear, scuffs and minor abrasions, but no splits or tears to the corners as one typically sees. Due to its silver paper and fragile construction "Montparnasse" (cited on page 275 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume II") rarely turns up in beautiful condition, but this is truly a most handsome example of this uncommon item that looks far nicer in hand than it describes.

(NEUTRA, RICHARD). Neutra, Richard. RICHARD NEUTRA: PROMOTIONAL POSTCARD FOR THE VDL RESEARCH HOUSE. Los Angeles. ND (Circa 1940).: Richard Neutra, Edition Not Stated - Presumed First. Architecture Periodical. Very Good -. One 3 1/4 x 5 1/2" cardstock sheet printed offset, recto only, 1 b&w illustration. This postcard was produced by Richard Neutra's office for tours of the famed Viennese architect's own Los Angeles residence - the "VDL Research House" in Silverlake. Arguably the most important Modernist architect to practice here, Neutra was a tireless self-promoter, and these cards were used to provide directions when soliciting a client or presenting a public open house. It is in remarkably good condition - especially considering that it more than likely dates to the mid to late thirties - showing overall age-toning along with a few brown spots on the recto due to contact with moisture and a small crease to upper right corner. Still in all, it is a handsome example of this charming uncommon ephemeral item that was obtained directly from the Neutra office. Inventory Number: 022693

(PIERCY, CLIVE). Piercy, Clive. CLIVE PIERCY: PRETTY VACANT; THE LOS ANGELES DINGBAT OBSERVED - DELUXE LIMITED SLIPCASED EDITION WITH A PRINT SIGNED BY THE PHOTOGRAPHER. Signed by the Photographer, with a B&W Print. San Francisco: Chronicle Books, 2003. First Edition 1/75 Deluxe. Stout Oblong 8vo. Pictorial Boards in Slipcase. Artist's Book. As New./No Jacket - As Issued. np (448pp), profusely illustrated in b&w and color. Designed by Ph.D. In essence a rectangular stucco box, the dingbat apartment building exploded in popularity during Los Angeles' housing boom of the fifties and sixties. Typically, they eschew ornamentation and details on three sides in order to focus the viewer's attention to the facade - often incorporating florid signage, elaborate window treatments, and carports. These now-decaying buildings are mostly ignored and/or reviled by locals, while revered by strangers to the city. Arriving there from the U.K. in 1982, Clive Piercy (a partner in the noted graphic design firm Ph.D), began traversing the city, and taking roll after roll of film of these unique monuments. Inspired by both Oklahoma native Ed Ruscha's "Some Los Angeles Apartments" and the late British architectural critic Reyner Banham's "Los Angeles: The Architecture of Four Ecologies", Piercy has artfully combined his photo-documentation cum artist's book of these multi-unit dwellings (duly noting their often hilarious names) with a constantly changing, collage-like design ethos to create another great outsider meditation on L.A.'s urban sprawl. A brand new, pristine example of the author's self-published deluxe edition of seventy-five copies housed in a printed orange silk slipcase containing a NUMBERED AND BOLDLY SIGNED book with a NUMBERED AND SIGNED 4 3/4 x 6 3/4" signed photographic print by Clive Piercy laid in, as issued. 0-8118-4024-7 Inventory Number: 014308

(POLIDORI, ROBERT). Polidori, Robert, Martin C. Pedersen & Criswell Lappin. ROBERT POLIDORI'S METROPOLIS - SIGNED BY THE PHOTOGRAPHER. Signed and Dated by the Photographer. New York: Metropolis Books, 2004. First Edition. Oblong 4to. Cloth in Dust Jacket. Photography Monograph. Fine/Fine. 144pp, 93 color illustrations. "Not only is he one of the world's preeminent architectural photographers, Robert Polidori is also - as his popular book "Havana" proved - a master of urban portraiture. The Montreal-born photographer has made haunting studies of bombed-out buildings in Beirut, decaying New York tenements, Versailles rooms in dusty disarray, Brasilia's paean to spare '50s modernism, and, most recently, the abandoned, contaminated cities of Chernobyl and Pripyat. Taken together, they add to his ongoing project: the interpretation of the interrupted urban landscape. This new monograph combines the eye of a celebrated photographer with the distinctive voice of an artist and adventurer. Each breathtaking image (meticulously selected by the photographer from his own personal archive) is accompanied by a compelling first person account, based on interviews conducted by Martin C. Pedersen, executive editor of Metropolis magazine. Polidori tells behind-the-scene stories about the making of his photographs, talks about what makes a building photogenic, how he shoots buildings he doesn't like, his favorite architects, and his love of mosques. "Metropolis" is a look at the world's great cities as seen through the eyes of a sharp social observer, and a great photographer". A pristine copy additionally SIGNED AND DATED "Robert Polidori 2004" in the year of publication in black ink on the title page.

In a protective wax paper dustwrapper. "Thirtyfour Parking Lots in Los Angeles" is Ed Ruscha's fifth photographically illustrated artist book, and the largest in format of his self-published works of the sixties. For it, Mr. Ruscha presciently hired local aerial photographer Art Alanis to capture grand, bird's eye views of the parking lots of the likes of Universal City, The May Company, Dodger Stadium, and thirty-one more - all completely devoid of cars! A most presentable example of the 1968 first edition (entry B5 in Siri Engberg's "Edward Ruscha: Editions 1959-1999" which is also cited on page 141 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume II", pages 198-201 of The Hasselblad Center's "The Open Book", and page 227 of "From Fair to Fine 3") limited to two thousand, two hundred and thirteen copies bearing the spectacular SIGNED PRESENTATION "To Marcia / My oldest and dearest without whose constant aid this dream would never have been a reality - Love ya / Ed" in pencil across the entire front free endpaper. In addition, the artist has inserted his own bold fingerprint between the third and fourth lines of the inscription. The late Marcia Simon Weisman, was for over four decades one of the most dynamic supporters of contemporary art in Los Angeles, a founding member of MoCA, and an ardent friend and collector of Ruscha's work. In thirty years we have handled well over one hundred books signed by the artist, and not seen anything approaching the length, complexity, and heartfelt sentiment of this inscription! The book itself shows light overall age-appropriate wear, handling and soiling. The publisher's fragile glassine wrapper is age-toned and lightly soiled with chipping and some paper loss along its edges. It has been priced accordingly.
