Description:
London: Duckworth, 1973. First edition of Sacks' classic work. Octavo, original cloth. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For John Rogers, with best wishes, Oliver Sacks Aug 2015." Near fine in a near fine dust jacket. Hailed by The Washington Post as, "One of the most beautifully composed and moving works of our time." The Awakenings tells the story of sleeping-sickness epidemic of 1918 which caused hundreds of survivors to slip into a paralysis with similarities to advanced Parkinson's disease. These patients, only occasionally able to communicate or move, were nearly all institutionalized for life, their ranks increasing every now and then with similarly afflicted men and women. Sacks came to work at a long-term care facility shortly before the first exciting results with L-dopa and Parkinson's in the late 1960s; his patients soon embarked on dramatic, difficult recoveries from up to 50 years of torpor. He documents their spiritual and medical obstacles with… Read more

New York: Basic Books, 1997. First edition. Octavo, original half cloth. Inscribed by Moshe Safdie on the half-title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Bill Douglas. In an age of virtual offices, urban flight, and planned gated communities, are cities becoming obsolete? In this passionate manifesto, Moshe Safdie argues that as crucibles for creative, social, and political interaction, vital cities are an organic and necessary part of human civilization. If we are to rescue them from dispersal and decay, we must first revise our definition of what constitutes a city.Unlike many who believe that we must choose between cities and suburbs, between mass transit and highways, between monolithic highrises and panoramic vistas, Safdie envisions a way to have it all. Effortless mobility throughout a region of diverse centers, residential communities, and natural open spaces is the key to restoring the rich public life that cities once provided while honoring our profound desire for… Read more

Description:
New York: Random House, 1978. In 1977, two extraodinary spacecraft called Voyager were launched to the stars. Affixed to each Voyager craft was a gold-coated copper phonograph record as a message to possible extra-terrestrial civilizations that might encounter the spacecraft in some distant space and time. Each record contained 118 photographs of our planet; almost 90 minutes of the world's greatest music; an evolutionary audio essay on "The Sounds of Earth"; and greetings in almost sixty human languages (and one whale language). This book is an account, written by those chiefly responsible for the contents of the Voyager Record, of why they did it, how they selected the repertoire, and precisely what the record contains.

Description:
London: Phaidon Press, 1997. First edition of one of the finest compilations of the works of Brazilian photojournalist and political activist, Sebastiao Salgado. Quarto, original gray cloth, illustrated throughout. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Signed by both Sebastiao Salgado and Nobel Prize-winning author Jose Saramago, who contributed the preface. A gifted photographer and a man of great compassion, Salgado does not take frivolous pictures. Here he returns to Brazil to document the lives of peasants forced off the land by the industrialization of agriculture, "landless" farmers, some of whom were massacred when they staged a demonstration in 1996. The struggle for land continues, but there is hope, and hope, along with quiet pride, is present even in the most strained visages recorded in Salgado's magnificent duotones, works of art that convey far more "information" than televised news reports. The book was published to coincide with the International Day of Struggle for the Land in April of… Read more
