The Beatles: Photographs From The Set Of Help!, Emilio Lari
1 Emilio Lari The Beatles: Photographs From The Set Of Help!
Rizzoli Intl Pubns 2015 0789329468 / 9780789329462 First Edition HARDCOVER Used; Like New 
Hardcover Rizzoli 2015. Book Condition: As New. Jacket Condition: none. Small remainder mark An extraordinary collection of mostly unseen photographs of the Beatles during the making of Help!. Published to coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of the release of the Beatles’ second motion picture, Help!, this almost entirely unpublished collection of photographs marks a pivotal turning point in the band’s history, as they evolved from much-loved musicians into the most important group of all time. The Beatles’ first movie filmed in color, Help! is a madcap adventure featuring cinematography and film sequences widely considered to be hugely influential to the modern performance-style music videos of today. Specialist set photographer Emilio Lari was invited by director Richard Lester to shoot stills of the production at Twickenham Studios and document behind-the-scenes larking about as the band relaxed in their hotel between takes. With an introduction by Lester and intimate, never-before-seen images, The Beatles: Help! provides new and fascinating insights into the band that changed the history of music and the world.

RFK: A Photographer's Journal, Gigi Benson, Ed.
2 Gigi Benson, Ed. RFK: A Photographer's Journal
power House Books 2008 1576874508 / 9781576874509 First Edition HARDCOVER Used; Very Good 
power House Books, Hardcover, 2008; First Edition, Book Condition: Very Good, Jacket Condition: Very Good. “I do not run for the presidency merely to oppose any man but to propose new policies. I run because I am convinced that this country is on a perilous course and because I have such strong feelings about what must be done that I feel I am obliged to do all I can.” —Robert F. Kennedy A world-renowned photojournalist and chronicler of the twentieth century’s most historic events, Harry Benson provides an eyewitness account of Robert F. Kennedy’s campaign for the presidential nomination in R.F.K.: A Photographer’s Journal. As a friend, advisor, and attorney general to his brother, John F. Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy stood at the heart of Washington politics. He is remembered today as a compassionate, articulate, and optimistic man—a friend to the poor, an avid civil rights advocate, a champion for peace. Harry Benson’s images capture unprecedented intimate family outings and outdoor adventures with friends alongside every moment of Kennedy’s brief but unforgettable presidential run, from his announcement of his candidacy on St. Patrick’s Day, 1968, and the fervor and excitement of his days on the campaign trail, all the way through his shocking assassination in Los Angeles and the long, sweltering funeral procession to Arlington Cemetery. Here in elegant photographs are glimpses of the exhilarating successes and challenging setbacks of R.F.K.’s campaign, the chaos of that fateful night in L.A., and the mourning of hundreds of thousands after their hero was struck down. Released in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of Kennedy’s death, and supplemented with excerpts from his speeches and from Benson’s own journals, R.F.K.: A Photographer’s Journal is a fitting tribute to an extraordinary man and the legacy he left behind.

Hollywood Movie Stills, Joel W. Finler
3 Joel W. Finler Hollywood Movie Stills
Titan Books 2012 1781161933 / 9781781161937 HARDCOVER New 
Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo, Clark Gable, Marilyn Monroe... It is through the eye of the stills camera that we experience and recall some of the cinema's most memorable events and faces. Still images are so powerful that they can easily pass for actual scenes for the movies they represent - rather than separately posed, lighted and photographed shots that may not even find their way into the finished film. This book is the most detailed and perceptive survey ever devoted to this neglected aspect of film-making. It traces the origin of stills photography during the silent era and the early development of the star system, through to the rise of the giant studios in the 1930s and their eventual decline. Finler focuses on the photographers, on the stars they photographed, and on many key films and film-makers. Hollywood Movie Stills is illustrated with hundreds of rare and unusual stills from the author's own collection, including not only portraits and scene stills but production shots, behind-the-scenes photos, poster art, calendar art, photo collages and trick shots. There are also photos showing the stars' private lives and special events in Hollywood. This lavishly presented new edition of Finler's classic work includes many new stills and much new insight and information into this fascinating aspect of the great film studios in their heyday.

4 Sartore, Joel National Geographic the Photo Ark : One Man's Quest to Document the World's Animals
National Institute of Public Education 2017 1426217773 / 9781426217777 First Edition HARDCOVER New 
Hardcover. 2017. Penguin Random House. Book Condition: New. This lush book of photography represents National Geographic's Photo Ark, a major cross-platform initiative and lifelong project by photographer Joel Sartore to make portraits of the world's animals—especially those that are endangered. His powerful message, conveyed with humor, compassion, and art: to know these animals is to save them. Sartore intends to photograph every animal in captivity in the world. He is circling the globe, visiting zoos and wildlife rescue centers to create studio portraits of 12,000 species, with an emphasis on those facing extinction. He has photographed more than 6,000 already and now, thanks to a multi-year partnership with National Geographic, he may reach his goal. This book showcases his animal portraits: from tiny to mammoth, from the Florida grasshopper sparrow to the greater one-horned rhinoceros. Paired with the eloquent prose of veteran wildlife writer Douglas Chadwick, this book presents a thought-provoking argument for saving all the species of our planet.

5 Van Der Zee, James James Van Der Zee
1974 0871000393 / 9780871000392 First Edition HARDCOVER Used; Very Good 
Morgan & Morgan, Dobbs Ferry, NY, 1973. Hardcover. First Edition. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. This is an association copy signed and dated by James Van Der Zee from the estate of Al Freeman, Jr. ( He is mostly recognized for his portrayal of police captain Ed Hall on the ABC soap opera One Life to Live, a role he played from 1972 through 1987, with recurring appearances in 1988 and 2000. He won a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor for that role in 1979, the first actor from the show as well as the first African-American actor to earn the award. A director of One Life to Live, he was one of the first African Americans to direct a soap opera). Purchased from the Al Freeman, Jr. and Sevara Freeman Estate. "The photographic documentation of American life began in the 1840s, and became all-pervasive in the 20th century. Before World War II, studio photographers, photojournalists and documentarians, photo organizations such as The Byron Co., Brown Brothers, the Farm Security Administration Historical Unit, all devoted most of their attention to majority Americans. We do not lack pictures of white celebrities, newsmakers, immigrants, laborers, the life of the middle class and 'high society.' But on the whole we do sadly lack similar records of America's minorities. However, within Black America a few photographers were steadily and sensitively recording the reality of their own people and communities. One of the most important of these is James Van Der Zee, a professional photographer since the early 1900s. For almost a half-century, the solid families of Harlem passed through Van Der Zee's GGG Studio: proud parents, winsome children, clergymen, newlyweds, lodge members, business and social leaders, glamour-struck young women, entertainers -- the entire spectrum of the community. Also, Van Der Zee frequently went outside the studio with his camera. The result was thousands of images of particularly American people and events. The more than 100 pictures shown here are representative selections from Van Der Zee's work. Far more than simple records of a largely-neglected part of America, they are sensitive, respectful, warmly understanding pictures of those who have formed the core of one of our most exciting and important communities. With a beautiful eye for light, a delicate sense of the right moment and the telling expression or pose, Van Der Zee has captured time, mood and personality in a way that lets us experience them with ease...."

The West: An Illustrated History, Ward, Geoffrey C.
6 Ward, Geoffrey C. The West: An Illustrated History
Little Brown and Company 1996 0316922366 / 9780316922364 First Edition HARDCOVER Used; Very Good 
Hardcover, Little, Brown, 1996. Book Condition: Very Good. Jacket Condition: Very Good. This is the companion volume to the stunning PBS TV series from Stephen Ives and Ken Burns. The book features over 400 illustrations, many of them never before published, in magnificent color. In a vivid narrative that begins with the arrival of the first Europeans and ends well into the 20th century, Ward provides a gripping journey through the turbulent history of the region that has come to symbolize America around the world. Drawing upon hundreds of letters, diaries, memoirs, and journals as well as the latest scholarship, THE WEST chronicles the arrival of wave after wave of newcomers from every direction of the compass. The cast is as rich and diverse as the western landscape itself--explorers, soldiers, Indian warriors, settlers, railroad builders and gaudy showmen. Coronado, Custer, Jesse James, Chief Joseph, Brigham Young and Buffalo Bill are all here. So are scores of lesser-known westerners whose stories are no less compelling--a Chinese ditchdigger. a rich Mexican landowner, a forty-niner from Chile, a Texas cowboy born in Britain, a woman missionary to the Indians who loathed the West and a Wellesley graduate who loved it in spite of everything it did to her and her family. It is the central story of America, a story filled with heroism and hope, enterprise and adventure as well as tragedy and disappointment. THE WEST explores the tensions between whites and the native peoples they sought to displace, but it also encompasses the Hispanic experience in the West from the time of the conquistadors to the transformation of a Mexican-American village called Los Angeles into the region's major metropolis, the lives of Chinese immigrants who called the region "Gold Mountain", and the ordeals of freed slaves from the South who sought a better life homesteading on the Great Plains. Beautifully written, richly illustrated, meticulously researched. THE WEST tells the story of a unique part of the country and provides a metaphor for the country as a whole.
