About this Item: Gottingen, Germany: Gerhard Steidl Druckerei Und Verlag/Edition 7L, 2003. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 352 pages. Published in 2003. New Edition of the author's classic collections of essays on New York City life. Limited Slipcased Edition of 1500 copies. The first appearance of the titles together, for the first and only time as such, and in a luxurious format. Published as hardcover originals only by two ardent fans, Gerhard Steidl and the great French fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld (under his 7L publishing label). The Limited Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Gerhard Steidl and Karl Lagerfeld: Regular-sized volume format. Matching blue cloth boards with titles embossed on the spine, as issued. Texts and illustrations by Fran Lebowitz. Yellow hard board slipcase. Enclosed in a protective plastic sheet. Printed on pristine-white, archival stock paper by Steidl in Gottingen, Germany to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Re-presents, in a Limited Edition format, Fran Lebowitz's "Metropolitan Life" and "Social Studies". Masterpieces of American humor, satire, and irony that no one, not even the permanently "writer's-blocked" author (she has since not published another essay collection), has surpassed. One would have to hark back to Lebowitz's mentor-predecessors in Dorothy Parker and James Thurber for fair comparison. "Hilariously acerbic classics of their genre, caustically portraying the vicissitudes of contemporary urban life. Wicked" (Publisher's blurb). A few aphoristic gems: "The opposite of talking isn't listening. The opposite of talking is waiting". "If you are of the opinion that the contemplation of suicide is sufficient evidence of a poetic nature, do not forget that actions speak louder than words". "I write so slowly that I could write in my own blood without hurting myself". Lebowitz and New York, the capital of the Western world, are not just about being funny or ironic. They are about life as the aristocracy of talent and brilliance. They are about cosmopolitan life as pure, civilized pleasure. So it is not surprising that among their biggest fans are Steidl and Lagerfeld, two world-weary Europeans. An absolute "must-have" title for Fran Lebowitz collectors. This is a copy of the Limited Slipcased Edition, indicated as such on the Back Limitation Page. Each volume is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Fran Lebowitz. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. These titles are great books. As far as we know, this is the only such double-signed copy of the Limited Edition available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, pristine beauties. Please note: Lebowitz did NOT sign most copies of the Limited Edition. A rare signed copy thus. One of the most brilliant American writers of our time. A fine collectible set. ISBN 3882439335. Signed by Author. Seller Inventory # 21220
