An Exciting Rare PhotoBook Auction... Just Started Up! Check this out!
So much so, we are almost scared to tell anyone about this opportunity.. but iGavel is starting to do auctions of Rare Photobooks!
The ever resourceful Dan Cooney almost too nice to be an art photography dealer, has just posted a great list of very hard to find, mostly 1st edition photobooks.
We checked them all out this weekend.. and we'd have to say..some of these book made us actually drool.
MAO is crazy,and pathetic an obsessed collector of rare photobooks, and this was an impressive line up for a first attempt book auction.
Some of the true highlights are..
- 1st edition Danny Lyon, The Bikeriders from 1968. (Pictured here)
- Nobuyoshi Araki, Tokyo Lucky Hole, First Edition, 1990
- Andreas Gursky 1994 - 1998, Signed
- Signed copies of Richard Avedon books.. The American West, and a signed copy of his An Auto-Biography 1993.
- 3 Lewis Baltz books.
- William Eggleston's Guide, Signed First Edition, from 1976.
- Henri Cartier Bresson, The Decisive Moment, Signed!
- Lary Clark's Punk Picaso, and a signed limited edition copy of his Tulsa...
and Yes.. the list of rare books goes on and on.. Cindy Sherman, Bruce Davidson, Nan Goldin, Herb Ritts, Walker Evans, Aaron Siskind, Ed Ruscha, and a few Bruce Weber books... Plus there's
even a Limited edition with a print by Bernd and Hilla Becher.
OK.. enough..there's too many to choose from.. MAO is almost broke already in a whirl wind just thinking about these coming up for auction. 85 Book lots.. all super hard to find.
Anyway.. if you're looking to add a few important books to your photobook library.. this seems like an amazing chance to pick up some real goodies.
