Contains the full color frontispiece "The Hill: Hobbiton-across-the Water", as well as the original line drawings by Tolkien. The maps are in excellent condition, red and black ink, still show clear and bright against the unfoxed endpapers. No previous owners name or writing. The dustjacket shows a bit of loss to the top of the spine, while the flap folds show only the most minor rubbing and slight color loss. A few minor closed tears along the edges, with a small amount of loss from a 1 inch closed tear to the lower edge of the back panel. The main fault is the top of the spine with the 3/4 inch missing segment of the border. A wonderful copy, scarce in original dustjacket in almost any condition. A full leather custom slipcase to house this lovely edition is provided, featuring the Mountains and Dragon design as found on the UK cover, to protect and show this classic of fantasy literature. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested.

        Klasszikus Összhangzattan. Segédkönyv. (Classical harmony. Reference Book.)

      Zenem?kiadó Vállalat, Budapest 1954 - First edition of Ligeti's first book. In original paper. 97, (3) p. Ligeti's theoretical writings are important to understand his thoughts about composition, and also to interpret his pieces. As in the 1950s he was not allowed to publish any theoretical books, this work is rather important to trace his ideas of composing. For instance, the last example that Ligeti uses in this reference book and also in his second reference book in 1956 (the detail of the first movement of the coda of Beethoven's Les Adieux sonata - Piano Sonata No. 26., Op. 81a), is the same melody that appears 30 years later in his Trio for Horn, Violin and Piano (Hommage à Brahms) in 1982. György Ligeti (1923-2006) was a Hungarian (Transylvanian) born composer. Studied at the Music Academy of Cluj and Budapest. After his graduation he started to collect folk music in Romania and taught composing and counterpointing at the Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest. He left Hungary after the revolution in 1956, and started to work at the radio station in Cologne where he made acquaintance with Karlheinz Stockhausen who had a major influence on his art. In 1959 settled down in Vienna and became citizen in 1967. Taught at the Universities of Darmstadt, Stockholm, Stanford and Hamburg. Under the influence of Stockhausen he started to compose music for electronic instruments like Artikulation and Atmosphères. This gave him reputation in the Western European music scene. After these works he gave up composing electronic music but his experiences with such instruments made and effect on his later compositions. His music could be characterised as a mixture of Western avant-garde music and Hungarian folk music combined with sense of humour and absurd. Ligeti's pieces (Lontano, Lux Aeterna, Requiem) were used as film music - among others - in Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Shining and Eyes Wide Shut also in Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island.

Mann started to plan the book in 1905 and finished the first chapters already in 1911 than he ceased writing it for about four decades to continue it in the early 50s, between 1950 and 1954.

Brown has won three Caldecott medals, but this was her first. And this is one of the most difficult to find of all the Caldecott Medal winners. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        A FABLE

      New York: Random House, 1954. First edition. Fine/Fine. A Fine copy of the book in like dust jacket. The jacket has a small stain on the rear panel, otherwise a very sharp copy. William Faulkner's 1954 novel, which won both the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize, "A Fable" took Faulkner over ten years to write. Set in World War I - and inspired closely by the life of Jesus - the novel is about Corporal Stephan, who's actions end up bringing a halt to the war. "Whatever its "sources," if such these be, Faulkner has stamped 'A Fable' as his own. His method of delayed revelation is present in extreme form and will make difficult reading for some and exciting reading for others. His style, at times very demanding of the reader, rises often to magnificence." (Contemporary New York Times review). Fine in Fine. dust jacket.
