Book Description 1966. 8vo. (140 x 172 mm). Original white wrappers, the spine and front wrapper lettered in silver, preserved in the original silver mylar-covered slipcase; [52]pp., comprised of an accordion folded sheet (760.7 cm. when extended), made up of 9 sections, tipped together and showing 2 continuous friezes of b/w photographs top and bottom; one light crease to the backstrip of the book, a few superficial scratches to the covers of the slipcase, otherwise a very good, bright copy. First edition, second issue. Limited to 5000 copies. This second issue differs from the first, only in that the final image is flush with the edge of the page, previously a printer's error had meant that it over ran. In this, the fourth of Ruscha's books and the first to be devoted to one locale, the artist photographed every building on the north and south sides of Sunset Strip, the part of Sunset Boulevard that extends between Crescent Heights in the east and Doheny Drive in the west, and then joined them together to form one continuous panorama. Aside from identifying intersections and the numbers of buildings Ruscha provides us with no information other than that provided by the signage and billboards photographed along the route. PARR, Martin and Gerry BADGER. The Photobook Vol II. pp. 142-3 (for the first edition); ENGBERG & PHILLPOT. Edward Ruscha Editions 1959-1999. B-4. Bookseller Inventory # 329706

Book Description Edward Ruscha, Los Angeles, California., 1971. Soft cover. Book Condition: Fine. No Jacket. 2nd Edition. The second edition of a work originally published in 1966. Accordion-fold reproductions of black and white photographs of the buildings, with their printed addresses. White paper card covers with the title: The Sunset Strip, printed in silver on the spine and front cover. The spine shows a partial, light crease, and a little, very light tanning. In the silver mylar-covered slipcase with white paper top and bottom edges. The front edges of the slipcase show small splits. An exceptionally fine copy of a very fragile book. Mentioned in Andrew Roth's: Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century. Ed Ruscha had a retrospective exhibition at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, in 2006. This is Ruscha's most famous book, in part because of the differences between the first and the second editions. In the first, the last photo could not be fit on the page, so the page was extended to accommodate the full picture and the page was folded to preserve the flush edge. Ruscha however was unhappy with this solution, and in the second edition he made sure that the last photo was cropped to fit the regular page and eliminate the fold. See "The Works of Ed Ruscha" (1982); p. 169. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-782003020

Book Description Ed Ruscha, Los Angeles, 1970. Soft cover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: No dust jacket as issued. 1st Edition. 1966/1970. First edition, second printing. Soft cover. White matte wrappers, with title printed in silver on cover and spine, no dust jacket as issued; with silver Mylar-covered cardstock slipcase. Photographs, artist's book concept and design by Ed Ruscha. Unpaginated accordion-fold, with numerous black-and-white panoramic plates printed as if one continuous photograph across the upper and lower sections of all of the pages. 7-1/16 x 5-5/8 inches (approximately 27 feet fully-extended). This second issue was limited to 5000 copies. [Originally published in 1966 in an edition of 1000 copies, identifiable only by an extra 2-inch flap at the end of the last folded page, the result of the printer's miscalculation.] [Cited in Andrew Roth, ed., The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century. (New York: PPP Editions in association with Roth Horowitz LLC, 2001), in Andrew Roth, ed., The Open Book. (Göteborg, Sweden: Hasselblad Center in association with Steidl Verlag, Göttingen, Germany, 2004), in Martin Parr and Gerry Badger, The Photobook: A History, Volume II. (London and New York: Phaidon, 2006).]. Fine (faint 1mm stain below title on cover, spine very lightly creased, typical of most copes of this book), in Near Fine Mylar slipcase (light rubbing and stray indentations, edge cracks repaired with PVA archival bookbinding glue, else Fine). Ed Ruscha took the photographs contained in this publication with a motorized Nikon camera mounted to the back of a pick-up truck. This allowed him to photograph every building on Sunset Boulevard (between Crescent Heights Boulevard in Hollywood and Doheny Drive in Beverly Hills), while driving -- first down one side of the street and then the other. The pictures were then pasted in order, the individual buildings were labeled with their respective addresses, and presented with the north side of the street at the top of the page, with the south side of the street inverted and aligned below it.

Book Description Self-Published, Los Angeles. 1966 (1970). Leporello Wrappers in Slipcase. Book Condition: Near Fine. Second Printing 1/5000. 8vo. One continuous accordion-fold page composed of glued paper segments extending to 296 ½" in length housed in a white paper and silver Mylar-over-cardboard slipcase. "Every Building on the Sunset Strip" is Ed Ruscha's innovative 1966 photographic study that pictures sequentially each architectural facade on both the North and South sides of the fabled Sunset Strip from 8101 - the still extant Jaguar dealership - to 9156 - the late, great Schwab's Pharmacy. Pandora's Box lives! A bright, most handsome example of the 1970 second printing (entry B4 in Siri Engberg's "Edward Ruscha: Editions 1959-1999", and whose 1966 edition is cited on pages 142-143 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume I", pages 198-199 of The Hasselblad Center's "The Open Book", and pages 182-185 of "The Book of 101 Books") limited to five thousand unnumbered copies showing some mild soiling and a slight soft crease along the spine. The slipcase's silver mylar overlay is shiny but lightly scuffed, there is some trivial soiling along the top and bottom edges, and there are separating tears to the white paper covering at each of the corners of the joints at the opening. The publisher's exceedingly fragile and uncommon unprinted white paper wraparound band issued only with the second edition is laid in. Still in all, this is a nice example of a stellar title that looks better in hand than it describes, that has been priced accordingly. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase. Artist's Book.

Book Description 1966, 1966. RUSCHA, EDWARD. Every Building on the Sunset Strip. Accordion fold artist's book illustrated in b&w. 8vo, wraps in a new cloth box. 1966. First Edition as dated 1966, but not a true first. Photomontage showing contiguously every building on both sides of the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles. Approximately 22 feet long when folded out to its full length. Ruscha identifies street numbers and the names of cross streets. The folded accordion paper of Ruscha's "Sunset Strip" has an extra 2" flap of paper folded over behind the last page of a real first edition. The final Jaguar building is pictured alone on this last half page. All other editions are cut evenly on the final page, including later printings that say "first edition" in front. Apparently the printer made an error in estimating the proper folding length of the printed paper the first time, but this was corrected in subsequent editions. Bookseller Inventory # 121374
