    A little rubbing and bumping, with minor handling, but in excellent condition apart from the flaws mentioned here. Unpaginated - 280 x 215 mm (11 x 8½ inches). Alan Rinzler said "The two simultaneous editions, in cloth and paper, sold out quickly and the book is now a valuable out-of-print work of original Warhol art". Rinzler was consulting editor of the Loft 1967-1969. Involved in "producing with him [Warhol] in a very collaborative creative process The Andy Warhol Index Book, a large format heavily designed book with special fold-out and pop-up features, photos, audio recordings, and text.

    In 1965, a photographer named Billy Liar had come to me with an idea for a photo book on Warhol and his factory, but when he brought me there, I took the opportunity to ask Andy if would like to participate more personally in creating a book that was also work of art, something he actually put together, as the author. And not just photographs and text but other ideas we could cook up that related to everything else he was producing at the time. Luckily, Andy was happy to agree and became the author of the book."

    1800. Two items. An original hand coloured copper engraving with two images of the coast of Japan with ships in the foreground. Also a full sheet of text, printed on both sides (one side is in German and the other in French). Sheet size for both is approx. 24.5 x 19.3 cm (image: approx. 9 x 14.5 cm). Both in a very good condition. Engraving is blank to verso. Translation of the text:
    Japan is a country that has only been better known for two hundred years and consists of several large and small islands on the north-east coast of Asia in the eastern great ocean, and because of its great wealth, especially in gold and other products, it has been an object of the Become European greed. The Portuguese settled here in the middle of the 16th century, but abused the goodness of the Japanese and were driven out by them. Since then only the Dutch have been allowed to trade in Japan, albeit with great restrictions; but the British failed two attempts that they made because of this.
    The latest Russian venture of this kind also failed. In 1803 the Russian court sent the two ships under the command of Capitan v. Krusenstern were sent to make a trip around the world, including an envoy to Japan. This envoy, however, was not admitted to the audience, and the gifts he had brought with him were not accepted. From the, by the captain v. Krusenstern 's masterful description of his journey around the world, the following two views are borrowed from Japan:
    Fig. 1. View of Megasaki near the city of Nangasaki in Japan, where the Russian ambassador was assigned his apartment, and the first visit of the Japanese interpreters, who are approaching the Russian ship in an open sloop, of which we can only see the rear.
    Fig. 2. The Russian envoy takes two boats or sloops, one of which is splendidly decorated, to the apartment in Megasaki assigned to him. Here we can get to know not only the design of the Japanese vehicles, but also the clothing of the Japanese. Deux articles. Une gravure sur cuivre originale colorée à la main avec deux images de la côte du Japon avec des navires au premier plan. Egalement une feuille de texte complète, imprimée recto-verso (une face est en allemand et l'autre en français). La taille de la feuille pour les deux est d'env. 24,5 x 19,3 cm (image : environ 9 x 14,5 cm). Les deux en très bon état. La gravure est vierge au verso. Traduction du texte :
    Le Japon est un pays qui n'est mieux connu que depuis deux cents ans et se compose de plusieurs grandes et petites îles sur la côte nord-est de l'Asie dans le grand océan oriental, et en raison de sa grande richesse, notamment en or et autres produits, il a été l'objet de la cupidité Devenir Européen. Les Portugais se sont installés ici au milieu du XVIe siècle, mais ont abusé de la bonté des Japonais et ont été chassés par eux. Depuis lors, seuls les Néerlandais ont été autorisés à commercer au Japon, bien qu'avec de grandes restrictions ; mais les Britanniques ont échoué deux tentatives qu'ils ont faites à cause de cela.
    La dernière entreprise russe de ce genre a également échoué. En 1803, le tribunal russe a envoyé les deux navires sous le commandement de Capitan v. Krusenstern ont été envoyés pour faire un voyage autour du monde, y compris un envoyé au Japon. Cet envoyé, cependant, n'a pas été admis à l'audience, et les cadeaux qu'il avait apportés avec lui n'ont pas été acceptés. À partir de la description magistrale du capitaine v. Krusenstern de son voyage autour du monde, les deux points de vue suivants sont empruntés au Japon :
    Fig. 1. Vue de Megasaki près de la ville de Nangasaki au Japon, où l'ambassadeur de Russie s'est vu attribuer son appartement, et la première visite des interprètes japonais, qui s'approchent du navire russe dans un sloop ouvert, dont on ne peut voir que il y a.
    Fig. 2. L'envoyé russe emmène deux bateaux ou sloops, dont l'un est magnifiquement décoré, jusqu'à l'appartement de Megasaki qui lui est assigné. Ici, nous pouvons connaître non seulement le design des véhicules japonais, mais aussi les vêtements des Japonais.

Looking at the officers and NCO's here, in the peak of fitness, one inevitably wonders how many of them survived the war which started less than a year later.

The photo-book Published in collaboration with Tel Design, Koninklijke Drukkerij GJ Thieme Nijmegen and Kadee Delft. 24 black and white photographs printed on glossy photo paper. To the rear of each are the details about the subject, the scene and those who participated. A fascinating concept in photography. A complex scene is set up - and the central subject is blind folded and brought into the scene. The blindfold is then briefly removed - and the photograph taken. They are then apparently blind folded again, and only see what was really there when the photograph is produced.
