Fuchs,Daniel and Geo
Text in English,French and German.Case is damaged,top rear slipcase dented,and slightly scuffed but otherwise very good.This book offers an unprecedented documentation of our era's most famous people, including artists, photographers, designers, creators of culture, musicians, actors and architects. Each of these people was present with his or her full energy and enthusiasm when Daniel and Geo Fuchs used a box-like Polaroid camera, which had originally been developed for eye doctors, to produce these creative highlights. The beginning of each session was devoted to the project of taking an extreme close-up of the celebrity's eye. The next step was to stage a second image, which usually integrated the first portrait of the person's eye. The resultant photographic artworks are every bit as diverse as are the personalities of the photographed individuals. These portraits accurately reflect the many facets of life: from gorgeous and aesthetic, through crazy and shrill, to desolate and thought-provoking. A representative collection of these fascinating photos is available now in this large-format photo book. Book and slipcase.Scuffed/dent in top of slipcase Text in English, German and French.

Edited By Yarbrough, Jean M.
In substantial selections from his earliest writings, the "Notes on Virginia", his public papers, and his personal correspondence, this volume traces the development of Jefferson's thinking on such fundamental issues as republicanism, constitutionalism, political parties, and the separation of religion from politics. His proposals for the education of women, the emancipation of slaves, and the expatriation of Native Americans are included, along with a number of intimate letters illustrating the range of Jefferson's interests and offering a peek into his private life. Drawing on the best Jeffersonian scholarship of the last thirty years, Yarbrough's Introduction sets Jefferson's life and writing in context and illuminates the ways in which his understanding of human nature influenced his political views. A brief head note introduces each selection and provides crucial background information; footnotes offer concise biographies of Jefferson's correspondents and identify other important figures and events. An index and select bibliography are also included. 287pp.
