About this Item: An Atlantic Monthly Press Book / Little, Brown & Company, New York, 1963. Cloth in Illustrated Jacket. Condition: Very Good -. First Edition. 402pp, 32 b&w illustrations. "Self Portrait" is Man Ray's 1963 tell-all autobiography that chronicles the artist's odyssey from his modest beginnings as Emmanuel Radnitzky from Ridgefield, New Jersey to becoming the toast of the Dada, Surrealist, Cinema, Fashion, and Literary sets in New York, Paris and Hollywood. A most presentable example of the 1963 first Little, Brown & Company printing additionally bearing the BOLDLY SIGNED PRESENTATION "for Emerson and Dina / Man Ray / 1966" in black ink on the title page showing some light wear and soiling along with mild dog-earing to the upper foredge corners of a few pages whose fragile dust jacket is a bit worn and rubbed on the spine and rear panel. The inscription is to Man Ray's friend, the late, great Los Angeles artist, collector, and educator Emerson Woelffer (and his wife Dina) from whose estate we acquired this directly. The 1966 date corresponds to the artist's return to Los Angeles to attend the comprehensive Man Ray retrospective exhibition held at the County Museum of Art, and produce a series of prints at Gemini G.E.L. It bears Woelffer's embossed red ownership label and handwritten date "July 31-64" on the front pastedown. 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. Signed Presentation Copy from the Artist. Artist Autobiography. Seller Inventory # 024956

About this Item: Atlantic Monthly / Little Brown, Boston, 1963. Hard Cover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. B/w Illustrations (illustrator). First Edition. Signed and inscribed by Man Ray with an original drawing of his trademark floating eye and face. This copy is inscribed on the half title to Frank Goodman, "one of the last of the old-time Broadway press agents, a star handler and headline hustler" (New York Times). The drawing and inscription are on the half title. The inscription, which is framed by and incorporates the drawing, reads "For Mr. Frank Goodman Man Ray April 2, 1963". The floating eye is above Ray's signature, and the nose and mouth extend beneath the inscription. CONDITION: Nice copy in the original black cloth in gilt and copper, in original jacket (slight surface wear to jacket with wrinkle at top; book has been recased with new endpapers; some light staining to top and bottom edges of text). Man Ray (born Emmanuel Radnitzky 1890-1976), American painter, photographer, and conceptual artist active in France, a leading light of the Dada and Surrealist movement. Jess McKinley's obituary in the New York Times offers a brilliant look back at Goodman's career: "In an era when movies like "Sweet Smell of Success" made Broadway seem like the most glamorous and gritty terrain in entertainment, Mr. Goodman was as reliable a presence as broken hearts and dreams come true. From 1939, when he started his career, to 1961, Mr. Goodman represented more than 50 Broadway productions, including eight shows in 1960 alone. Over the years, Mr. Goodman would act as a booster and sometimes as a baby sitter for every type of show person and show personality, from the volatile genius (Jerome Robbins of "Gypsy") to the delicate ingénue (Audrey Hepburn in "Gigi" in 1951) to the predictably haunted playwrights (William Inge and Clifford Odets, among others). Summing up his career in his unpublished memoir, Mr. Goodman started with an adage about the publicity game: "You don't get paid for the work you do; you get paid for the grief you take." Mr. Goodman seemed to believe that, but only to a point. "Still and all," he wrote, "there's worse ways to make a living"." Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Signed by Author. Collectible.
