Book hardbound
10-3/8 x 7-1/2 in. (264 x 191 mm)
Straight Arrow Books, San Francisco, CA, 1975. Fine in Near Fine DJ. First Hardback, 294 pp. Kenneth Anger's legendary Hollywood Babylon was first published in France (as many other controversial American novels) by Jean-Jacques Pauvert in 1959. Running away from the States, Anger arrived in Paris in the late '50s, where he quickly met Jean Cocteau who introduced him to every one. Anger started a movie based on the famous sado-masochistic novel "Histoire d'O" which stopped after only six days shooting. Nevertheless, he had met his publisher, Jean-Jacques Pauvert. Hollywood Babylon has been a great influence to a lot of people, including numerous French writers.

The Eternal Body: A Collection of Fifty Nudes (Signed Copy)
1986
Book hardbound
0 x 0 in. (0 x 0 mm)
Photography West Graphics, Carmel, CA, 1986. Large oblong quarto. Decorated pink cloth. Mint in fine dust jacket, which has sunning (as is typical with this book; the inks faded quickly to the light green) on spine just into front cover and two light rubs, but is otherwise perfect. Warmly and boldly signed. A retrospective collection of Bernhard's work, an erotic photography classic and a magnificently produced and very beautiful book. In her introduction, Bernhard states: "In photographing the nude, it is my aim to transform the complexities of the figure into harmonies of simplified form. I have approached my work with the nude much as I create a still life, with patience and reverence. My quest through the magic of light and shadow, is to isolate, to simplify and to give emphasis to form with the greatest clarity." The 50 plates are arranged chronologically and span the years from 1934 to 1976 (list of plates at rear of book). Includes two essays by Margaretta K. Mitchell, one on photographing the nude and the other a brief biography of Bernhard. In this condition and signed, this is a very rare book.
