1 Boris Mikhailov 55 [2001]
New York and London Phaidon 2001 1st Edition Soft cover Fine Issued Without Jacket Book 
Small (5-3/8 in. x 6-1/4 in.)Monograph on a Ukrainian photographer with a wicked sense of humor. Some images in color (perhaps hand-painted prints), some in sepia, some in collages, some too dark to make out, some posed, some candid, but all made from an individual artist's point of view. Hard to describe, but very catching. Fine in illustrated stiff wraps.

2 David Jeffrey: Works 1987 - 1996
New York Wynn Kramarsky 1996 1st Edition Paper Fine Issued Without Jacket Book 
26-page exhibition catalogue with an essay by Linda Kramer and a dozen plates of the work, which is made of paper, wax, and charcoal, so difficult to categorize---is it sculpture? Two of the plates might be in color, but that doesn't help. Would have been interesting to see how the work was displayed. Fine in illustrated wraps.

3 Die Ausstellungen der Galerie Paul Maenz [1985]
Koln Paul Maenz 1985 1st Edition Soft cover Fair Issued Without Jacket Book 
24-page catalogue summarizing the exhibitions held between autumn 1984 and summer 1985, with photographs of the work displayed in the gallery and ten color plates (one a double spread) and two more on the front and rear covers. Artists shown include Jiri Georg Dokoupil, Salvo, Peter Bommels, Walter Dahn, Martin Disler, and Endart.

Fine in color illustrated wraps.
