FREE domestic or international shipping with direct order. **BOLDLY SIGNED BY CHRISTO in black on title page. 2 volumes in 1. Printed orange paper covers.. 27 x 20.5 cm (11 x 8.5 inches). 265 + 99 pp., with several fold-out maps and other illusrations and graphs. A plastic pocket attached to the blank verso of the last page contains a sample of the fabric. Contents include: Project description (6 parts); Environmental setting, impact, mitigation (15 parts); Impact overview (4 parts); Alternatives to the proposed project (1 part). Appendix (pp. 151-265) contains supplementary exhibits, from lists of native plants to letters of recommendation and support. Volume 2, Addendum to the Draft Environmental Impact Report, dated December 12, 1975, reproduces comments and responses, both written (before November 26, 1975,) and oral (at a hearing, December 3, 1975). A copy of the Draft Environmental Impact Report that we sold in 2001 consisted of the first 265 pages in a plastic spiral binding. Most of this volume is reproduced at about 50% in David Bourdon's Christo: Running Fence; Sonoma and Marin Counties, California (New York: Abrams, 1978). The incredibly complex political, bureaucratic, financial, and commercial requirements needed to complete Christo's extraordinary projects are as much a part of his art as the aesthetic works he makes to visualize them and, through sales, to underwrite them. There are only twelve copies of this extremely rare document in OCLC (the World Catalogue), and seven of those are in Australian libraries. Backstrip very slightly faded; light cover wear. For an extra $200 ($950) total, we can also supply an as-new copy in slipcase and original mailing carton of the David Bourdon book described above, signed by Christo (limited to 2159 copies, with a page-sized piece of the original fabric bound).
