Samuel J. Wagstaff Jr. (1921–1987) amassed an extraordinary collection of 26,000 photographs between 1973 and 1984, recognizing that photography was an undervalued art form on which he might have a profound impact as a collector. He was mainly attracted to photographs that stimulated his imagination, and his taste ran toward the idiosyncratic—images that surprised him chiefly because he had never seen them before. In choosing the 147 works reproduced in this volume, Paul Martineau selected masterpieces as well as images from obscure sources: daguerreotypes, cartes-de-visite, and stereographs, plus mug shots, medical photographs, and works by unknown makers. The latter category contains some of the most outstanding objects in the collection, demonstrating Wagstaff’s willingness to position unfamiliar images alongside works by established masters as well as underrepresented contemporary artists of the time, including Jo Ann Callis, William Garnett, and Edmund Teske. This book is published to accompany an eponymous exhibition on view at the J. Paul Getty Museum from March 15 to July 31, 2016; at the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, CT, from September 10 to December 11, 2016; and at the Portland Museum of Art in Portland, ME, from February 1 to April 30, 2017.

Horses, hounds, risk-taking, adrenaline, the great outdoors and camaraderie are all part of the allure of hunting. In The Thrill of the Chase: celebrating hunting with harrier hounds in New Zealand, evocative photographs capture the essence of this dynamic sport. Equestrian journalist and hunting enthusiast Sarah Milne and award-winning photographer Rob Tucker have travelled the country recording all facets of the hunting season. Separate chapters outline the roles of key participants, including the Master, huntsman and whipper-in. Other chapters provide an insight into breeding, assessing and preparing hounds for hunting. Several of New Zealand's most recognised hunting identities, including 95-year-old Bessie Fullerton-Smith, Patroness of the New Zealand Hunts' Association are profiled and give their personal insights into the unique qualities of hunting in this country. As many paddocks in New Zealand are enclosed by post and wire fences, jumping wire presents a significant difference from hunting in either England or the USA. Although visitors initially find this challenging, it is an accepted part of the sport here. In the diverse New Zealand landscape, hunting can involve negotiating large fences (often wire), riding through streams or on the beach and around swamps and areas of bush. From Northland's coast-to-coast hunting, to rolling green Waikato farms, the big gorse hedges of Canterbury and expansive tussock lands of Central Otago, Rob Tucker's photographs record many of the hunts in action. Mount Taranaki, the mountains of the Central Plateau and the wide vistas of Hawkes Bay all provide wonderful backdrops for horses and hounds enjoying a day's hunting. Many good competition horses have started their careers in the hunting field and several New Zealand event riders have enjoyed the sport, including Mark Todd who comments in his foreword on 'the excitement of crossing fantastic country at speed and the challenge of jumping whatever comes in front of you.' One hundred and forty stunning photographs capture the action, fun and magnificent scenery that makes hunting in New Zealand such a special sport. Sarah Milne has been passionate about hunting since she first participated in the sport 26 years ago. It combines her love of horses and the New Zealand countryside with the challenge of following hounds. Sarah is an amateur whipper-in for the Waikato hunt and lives in Cambridge with her husband and two sons. She writes regularly for equestrian publications both here and internationally. Rob Tucker has been taking photographs for 36 years including four America's Cup regattas as Team New Zealand's in-house photographer, private work for Queen Elizabeth II, fashion photography with Elle McPherson and two front covers for Time International. Rob is based in New Plymouth.

Sarah's a whiz at tuning engines and winning races. Winning Craig, the local drag race hero, proves more difficult. He only has eyes for gorgeous women who are hot in the sack, not grubby tomboys. Sarah’s world gets an overhaul when her father hires Gordon. Soon she’s torn not only between two men she wants, but between the drag race winner she is and the woman she feels pressured to become. Reviews Sarah Matell isn't a run-of-the-mill romance heroine. She works as a technician in her father's California automotive speed shop, dresses and acts like a guy, and lives for drag racing. Anything female, from makeup to chick flicks, is an anathema to her. Sarah's one concession is her years-long crush on a fellow race-car driver, Craig Keller. Although they are only good friends, she fantasizes that one day she'll outrace him and he'll magically look at her as the love of his life. Meanwhile, Sarah is the apple of her father's eye, but things change when he hires Gordon Devine. Gordon has big plans, and he and Sarah do not get along. Despite the friction, Gordon asks Sarah to drive a prototype he's developed. She'll do anything to win, and soon everything begins to spiral out of control. Impulsive and spoiled, Sarah is both enjoyable and annoying, and readers will sympathize with Gordon in this atypical, up-to-the-minute contemporary romance. -- Maria Hatton -- Booklist Review, October 1, 2007 "When I got to the end of Thrill of the Chase, I wanted more. I wasn't ready to let go of Sarah and her world." - The Book Vixen "There is some great racing action and great character-development on the part of the three main characters. It was really a joy to watch develop." - Crystal, My Reading Room "Thrill of the Chase is a high octane ride that will throw you for a loop." - J. Thomas, The Long and the Short Of It Reviews "Let me tell you now that the fun is in the Thrill of the Chase." - Lil, Love Romances and More

"Forrest has spent most of his life saving things, especially photographs. That's why it's been easy for him to illustrate this book. He apologizes for showing so many pictures of himself and justifies it by describing this volume as his scrapbook of memories. He has tested the extremes in his personal life, in business, and in combat, where he learned that some of the edges were closer than he thought. Those stories are collected here. He describes his mistakes as being ample, but whispers that none have weakened his ardor for the chase."--Jacket flap.

Forrest Fenn hid a treasure chest several years ago - filling it with gold and jewels, and placed it somewhere in the Rocky Mountains North of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Estimates on the value of the chest range from one to three million dollars.James Porowski is a psychologist with specialties in personality development, creativity, and intelligence. So when a friend introduced him to The Thrill of the Chase, he was hooked. He carefully read and reread Forrest Fenn's book, and found it to be a work of art: creative, profoundly sincere, and funny. In his studies, which included six cross country trips to Montana, he found that the pictures throughout Fenn's book and their intricate arrangement were not random. They pointed to specific places on the map, and led to the general location where Fenn's treasure should be found. Porowski's book, Picture Clues of Forrest Fenn in The Thrill of the Chase, carefully takes the reader through all nine clues of Forrest Fenn's poem. He then uses the pictures and stories in Fenn's book to detail each of the nine clues, and place the treasure in an area where the Madison river flows through Bear Trap Canyon in Montana.Forrest Fenn is an artist: highly intelligent and detail oriented. The pictures in Fenn's book keep to that style.

Dawn Eden, internationally known speaker and author, presents a completely revised Catholic edition of her bestselling work, The Thrill of the Chaste. In this version, Eden shares her story of conversion to Catholicism and invites readers into a Catholic understanding of chastity and its spiritual benefits. When Dawn Eden released The Thrill of the Chaste in 2006, she was a Jewish convert to Protestant Christianity, preparing to make the final leap into Catholicism. Now, nine years later, Eden has extensively updated The Thrill of the Chaste, sharing how her Catholic faith, the lives and intercession of the saints, and the healing power of the sacraments have led her to find her true identity in Christ. This revised, Catholic version offers spiritual and practical advice for both men and women seeking to live chastely in a world that glorifies sex. Eden offers tips to help readers avoid temptation and live faithfully—including dressing modestly, but not being afraid to feel good about the way they look; trusting that God has a plan for their life and relationships; and making sure their “yes” comes from the heart.
