About this title

Synopsis:

Shows public lands illegally used to test bombs

Review:

"For eighteen months in the mid-eighties, photographer Richard Misrach roamed through the natural beauty and man-made devastation of Bravo 20 [bombing range], while Myriam Weisang Misrach researched the history of military expansionism -- and local protest -- in the West. The result is a book that not only documents the ongoing battle for Bravo 20, but offers a suggestion on what best to do with the burst shells, bombed-out buses, automobile hulls, and other naval detritus: leave it right where it is." -- Mother Jones



"Perhaps the most stunning photo book I've seen this year." -- Kurt Wolf, San Francisco Bay Guardian

Store Description

I focus on intrinsically interesting, important, or unusual books in all fields. Specialties include popular culture; esoterica; modern & contemporary literature; John Steinbeck; The Beat & NY schools; poetry & small press; the avant-garde; little magazines & lit. journals (especially those associated with the Mimeo Revolution); manuscripts & archives; literary ephemera; Americana; as well as vernacular, folk, and outsider books of all kinds. A sense of the eclecticism I strive for can be seen in some of material I've recently handled. From an illuminated 15th-century manuscript Book of Hours to a collection of photographs and collages by Beat great William S. Burroughs, from a Yosemite tourist album containing some of the earliest images of a Sierra Club expedition to an important archive of letters from writer Henry Miller to his agent, I seek material that will fascinate and endure. I am always looking to purchase fine books in any of my areas of interest, from single titles to collections. Please inquire. Search and want services are available, as are appraisals and collection development. For three years I maintained an open shop in Monterey, CA (formerly the Cannery Row Old Book Co.). I now work in the Washington DC area and maintain office space in downtown Silver Spring MD. I am open by chance or appointment. I also exhibit regularly at book fairs around the country.
