41 BLOWER, JAMES (COMPILER); MACEWAN, GRANT (FOREWORD). Gold Rush.
American Heritage Press, New York: 1971. 007092919X / 9780070929197 First Printing. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition. 
Salutes those boisterous, hopeful men equipped with pack horses, ox teams or dog sleds, embarking on a wild journey of more than 1600 miles through forests, swamps, perilous rivers and lakes. Parties of men never heard from again...did they strike it rich in the gold fields or were they victims of drowning, scurvy, starvation? Fortunately, Edmonton boasted two excellent photographers during the Klondike days - W. C. Mathers and Ernest Brown - who recorded on film this extraordinary period in history. Their photographs, most of which have never been published before, represent the greater part of this book.

45 BRASSAI. Proust In The Power Of Photography.
The University of Chicago Press, Chicago: 2001. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
One of the most original and memorable photographers of the twentieth century, Brassa• was also a journalist, sculptor, and writer. He took great pride in his writing, and he loved literature and language-French most of all. When he arrived in Paris in 1924, Brassa• began teaching himself French by reading Proust. Captured by the sensuality and visual strategies of Proust's writing, Brassa• soon became convinced that he had discovered a kindred spirit. Brassa• wrote: "In his battle against Time, that enemy of our precarious existence, ever on the offensive though never openly so, it was in photography, also born of an age-old longing to halt the moment, to wrest it from the flux of duration in order to 'fix' it forever in a semblance of eternity, that Proust found his best ally." He quoted Proust in his own writing, and from the annotated books in his library, we know that he spent a lifetime studying and dissecting Proust's prose, often line by line. Drawing on his own experience as a photographer and author, Brassa• discovers a neglected aspect of Proust's interests, offering us a fascinating study of the role of photography both in Proust's oeuvre and in early-twentieth-century culture. Brassa• shows us how Proust was excessively interested in possessing portraits of his acquaintances and how the process by which he remembered and wrote was quite similar to the ways in which photographs register and reveal life's images. This book-beautifully translated by Richard Howard-features previously obscure photographs from Brassa•'s High Society series and offers a rare glimpse into two of France's most fascinating artistic minds. Contents Introduction I Photography in Proust's Life 1 Birth of a Passion 2 Exchanges of Photographs 3 The Role of Photography in Proust's Artistic Formation II Keys for the Search 4 The Giant Photograph of the Knights of Malta 5 The Portrait of Berma 6 To Win Back Her Husband, Gilberte Obtains Photographs of His Mistress 7 Saint-Loup's Disappointment 8 The Longed-for Photograph of Gilberte Swann 9 Miss Sacripant, the "Lady in Pink," and Odette: One and the Same Person 10 The Fascinating Duchess de Guermantes 11 When Marcel's Grandmother Poses for Saint-Loup 12 The Profaned Photograph of Vinteuil 13 The Photograph of Charlus Puts Morel to Flight 14 Reincarnations III The Influence of Photography on Proust's Thought 15 A Photographer's Studio 16 Reportage 17 A Lens of Variable Focal Length 18 Chronophotography 19 An A-human Vision 20 Photography at the Origin of Proustian Relativism 21 From Latent Image to Involuntary Memory Translated into English from the French by Richard Howard.

60 BUSWELL, RICHARD S. What They Left Behind: Photographs.
A. A. Wyn, Inc., New York: . h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
More than forty years ago, Richard S. Buswell chose the relics of Montana's past as his raw material. Over time, in five books, he has sharpened his focus, moving from panoramic vistas of abandoned buildings to meticulously composed, tightly framed depictions of natural and man-made objects against stark black backgrounds. He has shifted the viewer's attention from his subjects to the form and structure of his pictures. Although rooted in Buswell's experience as a lifelong Montanan, the photographs in this book are no more (or less) "about" Montana than James Joyce's Dubliners, Portrait of an Artist, or Ulysses are "about" Dublin. Most books about Western ghost towns and historical artifacts abound in sentiment. They comfort us with the illusion that we can recover what has been lost. What They Left Behind reminds us that time carries us onward despite our wishes to remain in the past. Richard S. Buswell's photographs are in more than two hundred museum collections and have been published in four earlier books, including Close to Home: Photographs (UNM Press). He lives in Helena, Montana. 8.5 x 11 in. 88 pages 56 duotones.
