Matta-Clark presented it at the artist-run space 112 Greene Street in New York in 1972. The project began with a series of black and white photographs of derelict houses in New York City. Where the facades of the buildings had been taken down, the photographs revealed the interiors the walls of which were covered in flaking paint or wallpaper. Matta-Clark's work was constructed from these photographs. The images were printed on strips of newspaper and hung on the wall at Greene Street. The installat ... Read more

Eight Years in Cocaine Hell

MEYERS, Annie C.

  • Quantity available: 1
Chicago: St Luke Society 1902, 1902. First edition. 12mo (185x120mm). pp. 75. Two facsimile letters and five photographs. Original green boards, sympathetically rebacked, upper board printed in gold, lettering fading. Corners worn but overall a very good copy. The earliest known full length confession by a female addict. Annie Meyers, describes her descent from "well balanced Christian woman" to "a haggard and wretched physical and mental wreck". Her problems began with Birney's Catarrh Remedy and the book traces her numerous arrests, her progressive physical decline illustrated by photographs and her eventual recovery. "I believe that I am the only living person in the world to-day who ever took 200 grains (over 12 grams) in twenty-four hours and survived". While Meyers focuses her invective primarily on cold and headache remedies, 99% of which, she claims contain cocaine, it is likely that she would have used other medicines such as asthma and hay fever snuffs, some of ...

Loosely inserted is a colour studio publicity photograph (255x204mm) of Marlon Brando as Colonel Kurtz. Released at the end of 1979, Apocalypse Now is regarded as one of the finest war films and a paradigm for the driven madness of the auteur. In 1969, John Milius was paid $15,000 by Coppola to write the screenplay for a Vietnam film. George Lucas was to have directed it but the commercial failure of his sci-fi dystopia THX-1138 in 1971 (produced by Francis Ford Coppola) meant that the proposed film was shelved.

She stimulates herself and her lover to witness the tortures of a Chinese prison, the resulting fornication taking place in a nearby brothel: "I promise to lead you right down to the depths of the mysteries of Love and Death...they ...
