Book Description: National Excelsior Publication, Hollywood, 1962. First edition, one of 400 copies. Original white wrappers, printed in red. In near fine condition. Signed twice by Ed Ruscha, inscribed once and signed again by the author. Ed Ruscha's first book, a seminal "bookwork", one of the most influential conceptual art works, it served as a kind of tonic, liberating the artists' book from many of its traditional emphases. "The first book came out of a play with words. The title came before I even thought about the pictures. I like the word 'gasoline' and I like the specific quality of 'twenty-six.' If you look at the book you will see how well the typography works - I worked on all that before I took the photographs. Above all, the photographs I use are not 'arty' in any sense of the word. . . . One of the purposes of my book has to do with making a mass-produced object. The final product has a very commercial, professional feel to it . . . . I have eliminated all text from my books — I want absolutely neutral material. My pictures are not that interesting, nor the subject matter . . . my book is more like a collection of 'ready- 56 item 241 mades'. Edward Ruscha, Artforum interview, 1965; Lippard, Six Years: The dematerialization of the art object from 1966 to 1972, p.11. "The most renowned series of artist's books in the history of the genre," Parr & Badger, The Photobook: A History, Vol. II; Castleman, A Century of Artists Books, p.167. Bookseller Inventory # 4014

Book Description: Alhambra California: The Cunningham Press, 1963. First edition, first printing, numbered 242 of 400. Original white paper covers printed in red, with the original plain tissue wrapper. An excellent near fine bright copy with no inscriptions or stamps and no loose, marked or torn pages. Covers very faintly darkened to the bottom edge. The glassine is darkened and edge-worn with a tear and some associated loss to the front flap but complete. A terrific copy. Ruscha’s first book, initiating his much-imitated cut back, literal aesthetic. Produced cheaply and accessibly, Ruscha’s signature style is sympathetic to Warhol’s Pop Art movement and made without use of heavy paper or glossy hard covers. The twenty six gasoline stations follow Route 66 from West to East; Los Angeles, where Ruscha lives to Oklahoma City, where he grew up. The final station, at Groom in Texas, marks the beginning of the return journey. A scarce book, particularly as nice as this. Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request. Lucius Books welcomes direct contact with our customers. Bookseller Inventory # 10201

Book Description: Self-Published, Los Angeles. 1963 (1968). Printed Wrappers with Glassine. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. Second Edition 1/500. 12mo. np (48pp), 26 b&w illustrations. Edward Ruscha's 1963 travelogue of decaying Americana, "Twentysix Gasoline Stations" is a deft photographic documentation of the iconic, then-vanishing roadside rest stops between his hometown of Oklahoma City and his newfound promised land of Los Angeles. A bright, handsome example of the uncommon 1968 second edition of the artist's landmark first book (entry B1 in Siri Engberg's "Edward Ruscha: Editions 1959-1999" which is also cited on page 140 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume II", and pages 198-201 of The Hasselblad Center's "The Open Book") limited to a mere five hundred copies bearing the SIGNED PRESENTATION "For Pat - (check Jackrabbit, Arizona) / Best Wishes, Ed / 1969" in the year of publication in blue ink on the dedication page. American actress Patricia Quinn is perhaps best known for her role as Alice in "Alice's Restaurant", and from whom we obtained this significant tome directly. The matte white covers show a slight margin of light soiling to along the bottom edge, but none of the fading to the red lettering on the spine typically associated with this title. The publisher's fragile glassine wrapper is bright, fresh, and beautifully preserved.

Book Description: Alhambra, CA: The Cunningham Press, 1967. Second Edition. One of 500 unnumbered copies. Original white wrappers with title printed in red ink on front and spine. Glassine dust-jacket with protective mylar cover. Some tearing on top/bottom edges of glassine dust jacket. Light soiling and wear on front cover. Ruscha combines the literalness of early California pop art with a photographic aesthetic using minimalist concepts of repetitive sequence and seriality. The title describes the book - black and white photographs of twenty-six different gasoline stations. The idea was for the book to be available to an audience that couldn't afford gallery art; circumventing galleries began with Happenings and certain Fluxus events in the late 1950s and early 1960s. There was an idea of the book as a democratic and affordable means in which an artist could produce their vision and disseminate it widely. [Drucker 77]. In an interview Ruscha explains that, ".One of the purposes of my book has to do with making a mass-produced object. The final product has a very commercial, professional feel to it.My pictures are not that interesting, nor the subject matter. They are simply a collection of "facts.a collection of "readymades." [quoted from an interview with Ruscha by John Coplans, Artforum,February, 1965 in Lippard 12]. A very good copy of Ruscha's ground breaking first book. Bookseller Inventory # 00201164
