David Douglas Duncan SELF-PORTRAIT USA 1969 Author-Signed First Edition Photographic History Of 1968 Presidential Nominating Conventions

Lot 4313: David Douglas Duncan SELF-PORTRAIT USA 1969 Author-Signed First Edition Photographic History Of 1968 Presidential Nominating Conventions

by National Book Auctions

January 4, 2015, 12:00 PM EST

Ithaca, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $70 - $200

Description: Title: Self-Portrait: U. S. A.Author: David Douglas Duncan - David Douglas Duncan is an American photojournalist and among the most influential photographers of the 20th century. He is best known for his dramatic combat photographs.His career as a photojournalist had its origin when he took photographs of a hotel fire in Tucson, Arizona where he was then studying archaeology at the University of Arizona. His photos included one of a hotel guest who made repeated attempts to go back into the burning building for his suitcase. That photo proved to be newsworthy when the guest turned out to have been notorious bank robber John Dillinger and the suitcase to have contained the proceeds of a bank robbery in which he had shot a police officer. Unfortunately, after turning the film over to the Tucson Citizen, the film was lost forever, and the photos never printed.After college, Duncan began to free lance, selling his work to journals such as The Kansas City Star, Life and the National Geographic Magazine. After Pearl Harbor Duncan joined the Marine Corps, earned an officer's commission, and became a combat photographer. After brief postings in California and Hawaii, he was sent to the South Pacific on assignment when the United States entered World War II. Though combat photographers are often close to the action, they rarely fight. However, in a brief engagement at Bougainville Island, Duncan found himself fighting against the Japanese. Duncan also covered the battle of Okinawa. Duncan would be on board the USS Missouri during the Japanese surrender.His war time photographs were so impressive that, after the war, he was hired by Life to join their staff upon the urging of J.R. Eyerman, Life's chief photographer. During his time with Life he covered many events including the end of the British Raj in India and conflicts in Turkey, Eastern Europe, Africa and the Middle East.Perhaps his most famous photographs were taken during the Korean War. He compiled many of his photos into a book called "This Is War!" (1951), with the proceeds going to widows and children of Marines who had been killed in the conflict. Duncan is considered to be the most prominent combat photographer of the Korean War.In the Vietnam War, Duncan would eventually compile two additional books "I Protest!" (1968) and "War Without Heroes" (1970). Here, Duncan stepped out of his role as a neutral photographer and challenged how the US government was handling the war.Aside from his combat photographs, Duncan is also known for his photographs of Pablo Picasso to whom he had been introduced by fellow photographer Robert Capa. Eventually, he was to publish seven books of photographs of Picasso. Duncan became a close friend of Picasso and was the only person allowed to photograph many of Picasso's private paintings. Duncan now lives in Valbonne, France, close to Mougins where Picasso spent his last 12 years.Greatly assisting Nippon Kogaku (Nikon) during their early years, in 1965 Duncan was presented with the 200,00th Nikon F built in recognition for his use and popularization of their camera.In 1966 he published "Yankee Nomad" a visual autobiography that collected representative photographs from throughout his career. In 2003 this was revised and published under the title of "Photo Nomad."Duncan traveled extensively in the Middle East, having been stationed there for 10 years as a Life photographer after World War Two. He later published "The World of Allah" in 1982Publisher: Harry N. Abrams, Inc., PublishersCity: New YorkYear: 1969Printing Information: Signed EditionBinding Style: HardcoverPagination: 240 pagesWidth: 11.5" Height: 14.25"Book Details: This volume contains a photographic history of the presidential nominating conventions of 1968."David Douglas Duncan, the former Life photographer, originally covered the two conventions in his acclaimed television specials for NBC News. He has now assembled his extraordinary work in this book: "Self-Portrait: U.S.A.." It moves chronologically (and intimately) from Rockefeller's jubilant arrival in Miami through Nixon's acceptance of the Republican nomination; from the first view of Mayor Daley's Chicago with its welcome signs and police dogs though the turbulence both inside and outside the convention hall which rocked the city and the nation. Although vastly different, the two conventions marked a watershed of American politics, stimulating a great new flow of history. Duncan has now revealed the face of our county -- young and old -- reacting to some of the major clashes of the world of today." (From text of front jacket flap)Condition / Notes: This is a scarce author-signed first edition. An inscription on the page opposite the title page reads "15 Oct (?) 69 / illegible word / For Irving Bernstein / One photographer / to another . . . / Good luck! / David Douglas Duncan."This folio volume is bound in blue cloth with bright stamped gilt lettering to the spine and the party emblems of the Republican and Democratic Parties stamped in gold, within gilt circles, on the front cover. The book shows light shelfwear. The binding is sound. The volume has photographic endpapers. The interior is clean and without markings. The intact dust jacket displays shelfwear.For lots which include only books, our shipping charge applies to any address within the fifty United States. For lots which are not books, the stated shipping cost in this listing will apply only to addresses within the continental 48 states. Within those parameters, the shipping cost for this lot will be: $9.50

by National Book Auctions

January 4, 2015, 12:00 PM EST

Ithaca, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $750 - $1,000

Description: Title: The Works of the Late Dr. Benjamin Franklin Consisting of His Life Written by Himself. Together with Essays Humorous, Moral, & Literary, Chiefly in the Manner of the SpectatorAuthor: Benjamin Franklin - Dr. Benjamin Franklin was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. A noted polymath, Franklin was a leading author, printer, political theorist, politician, postmaster, scientist, musician, inventor, satirist, civic activist, statesman, and diplomat. As a scientist, he was a major figure in the American Enlightenment and the history of physics for his discoveries and theories regarding electricity. He invented the lightning rod, bifocals, the Franklin stove, a carriage odometer, and the glass 'armonica'. He formed both the first public lending library in America and the first fire department in Pennsylvania.Franklin earned the title of "The First American" for his early and indefatigable campaigning for colonial unity; as an author and spokesman in London for several colonies, then as the first United States Ambassador to France, he exemplified the emerging American nation. Franklin was foundational in defining the American ethos as a marriage of the practical and democratic values of thrift, hard work, education, community spirit, self-governing institutions, and opposition to authoritarianism both political and religious, with the scientific and tolerant values of the Enlightenment. In the words of historian Henry Steele Commager, "In a Franklin could be merged the virtues of Puritanism without its defects, the illumination of the Enlightenment without its heat." To Walter Isaacson, this makes Franklin "the most accomplished American of his age and the most influential in inventing the type of society America would become."Publisher: Printed by Tiebout & Obrian for H.

Shakopee, MN, USA

Estimated Price: $50 - $60

Description: This is a vintage 1977 book by Diane Waldman titled Joseph Cornell. Published by George Braziller. Softcover. First edition. Joseph Cornell remains one of the most popular artists of the 20th century. This work provides an insight into the artist's remarkable inner world: a universe populated with empty cages, mirrors, clay pipes, postage stamps, marbles, thimbles and paper scraps, Cornell collected in his basement repository and fashioned into self-contained constructions, montages, collages and films. The artist's relationship to both American and European Romanticism, his involvement with the Surrealist movement, the peculiar mechanics of his work, and a glimpse at his cinematic explorations are accompanied by an illuminating biography and numerous illustrations. This survey brings to life the work of a brilliant artist whose imaginative re-ordering of the world's chaos is still as inspirational as ever. SIZE: 8 1/2" x 11". 128 pages. ****** We provide in-house shipping. Low shipping costs! Combine items to save even more! Click on the Shipping tab below for details.
