Ernst Jünger (* 29. März 1895 in Heidelberg; + 17. Februar 1998 in Riedlingen) war ein deutscher Schriftsteller, Philosoph, Offizier und Insektenkundler. Er ist vor allem durch seine Kriegstagebücher "In Stahlgewittern", durch Essays, phantastische Romane und Erzählungen bekannt. Mit seinem Frühwerk wird er der sogenannten Konservativen Revolution zugerechnet. Aufgrund seines radikalen, nationalistischen, anti-demokratischen und elitären Frühwerks gilt er einigen Kritikern als ein intellektueller Wegbereiter des Nationalsozialismus, während ihn andere höchstens dem Rand eines reaktionären Spektrums zurechnen. Von der nationalsozialistischen Ideologie distanzierte er sich in den frühen 1930er Jahren wegen des als geistlos empfundenen Totalitarismus der NS-Massenbewegung.

        AMIDA NYORAI HYAKU BUTSUZOU: ONE HUNDRED IMAGES OF AMIDA NYORAI: ONE HUNDRED IMA

      [Nara ca. 1100 A.D., Joruri-ji Tempe]. A Single sheet 33.3 x. 46.8 cm. [backing size], rebacked on hand-made Washi paper,. print sheet size: 32.8 . x 45.6 cm., hand-printed woodblocks. on thin mulberry Washi paper, stunning work! S C A R C E. A RARE AND STUNNINGLY EARLY BEAUTIFUL BUDDHIST PRINT THIS AN EXCEPTIONALLY RARE AND EARLY WOODBLOCK PRINT * "Although printing had been practiced in Japan as early as the eighth century, the stamping or block printing of large numbers of Buddhist images did not gain prominence until the last half of the Heian period. The reception of images was believed to be an effective method of accumulating religious merit, and this stimulated the production of Buddhist prints-often rather crudely made-in vast numbers. The blocks or stamps most commonly used contained anywhere from a single image up to a dozen identical units; large full-sheet blocks, such as this one, seemed to have been used less frequently." [quoted from Rosenfield, see below] *** DETAILS OF OUR ITEM: Our item is printed on high fiber Washi paper, quite bright and still retaining its natural fiber color. There is some loss to the lower margin but very little loss to the printing. The upper left corner is gone and with it five images are gone. There is a minor bit of left margin loss but very little printing loss. The right margin is excellent. The print was acquired from the late Richard C. Rudolph of U.C.L.A., who had cut the print in half horizontally. The two parts are now back together and has been professionally rebacked on Washi paper, there is no loss where they are rejoined. The hand-made Washi paper on the right and left edges are a bit thicker than the rest of the paper, perhaps there was an effort on the part of the paper-maker to give strength to these edges. Our example is exceptional when compared to other known copies. * ILLUSTRATED IN ISHIDA: This excellent example illustrated in Ishida is owned by Joruri-ji Temple and has only 81 of 100 images, there was loss to the margins. [see reference below] *** PRINTING AS A DAILY DEVOTION: Ishida points out on p.30-31, discussing the Heian practice of worshipers printing a number of Buddhist images each day or month to fulfill a religious vow. Printing these images gave merit and virtue to the printer, thereby increasing their position in the Buddhist Sangha [community]. Temples encouraged the Sangha to print images as that aided in soliciting donations. "Donors were allowed to pay for the printing of Buddhist images to be placed inside of statues. This served the purpose of temple finance in much the same way as printed appeals for contributions. The images were never distributed to the people but were instead stored away in sculpted images." It seems little has changed in a thousand years, as Buddhist priests still seem to offer prints to donors even today. It is believed that the prints were discovered in the 1960's and given to donors who gave substantial sums of money for temple restoration. . Every morning as part of a daily regimen, women of the Imperial court would print Buddhist images using woodblocks on sheets of thin mulberry Washi paper as religious observance, much like saying prayers every morning. After an appropriate number of pages were printed, the sheets were rolled and tied in bundles and then inserted into the hollow interior of sculptures. * WOODBLOCK PRINTING TECHNIQUE: This print was printed from a single woodblock containing ten images in a row, with ten rows in all yielding some 100 images on a single sheet. See Baskett p.30 for additional details. Rosenfield supports the idea of a single block with 100 images carved on it. There is ample evidence to support both Ishida and Baskett's idea that the print was done by use of a single block containing 100 images stamped on a single sheet of Mulberry paper. * RARITY: The print is exceptionally RARE ! Only a few examples have been cited, published or illustrated. Apparently this image only came to light in the 1960's and very few came to public view, those few that were given to patrons eluded the usual scholars and their publications. It was not uncommon for patrons of Buddhist temples in Japan to covet and hold their gifts from the temple for several reasons. Namely, the need and desire to remain unknown to the general public for their donations, which were done for the right reasons, avoiding any public acknowledgement. Secondly, there are moral questions vis-à-vis accepting "compensation/gifts" from monks for donations. Above all, donors do not like others to know their private business and so the prints given in acknowledgement by monks commonly remains a private matter. * A QUOTE FROM JOHN ROSENFIELD: Per Rosenfield: "The Main Hall [Hondo] of Joruri-ji, a temple situated in the low mountains east of Nara, houses a notable group of nine statues of Buddha Amida. During restoration on the central image of this group some years ago, many sheets of woodblock prints, among the one shown here, were discovered inside the statue. The pages were printed with rows of small Amida figures, each seated in mediation. In this example one hundred images printed from a single block of wood are arranged in ten horizontal rows. * The example illustrated in Rosenfield shows some loss to the lower corner. *** CONDITION: The print was kept relatively safe inside a sculpture of Amida Buddha for some 900 years. During that time natural attrition rate to bugs or moisture has taken a toll on this kind of print. It is therefore natural to see some loss and other minor defects. *** BIBLIOGRAPHY: * Rosenfield, John: JAPANESE ARTS OF THE HEIAN PERIOD: 794-1185: pages 74, illustration no. 29, text page 117. * Ishida, Mosaku et al: NIHON HANGA BIJUTSU ZENSHU, vol.

        FUDOH MYOH-OH INBUTSU: ONE-HUNDRED IMAGES OF FUDOH MYOH-OH, FROM TOH-JI TEMPLE,

      [Kyoto 1185-1333, Tohji Temple]. A single sheet woodblock. printed, white Washi mulberry paper, 32 x 48 cm., minor old. worming now rebacked, shows 100 FUDOH MYOH-OH icon images,. extremely rare and famous work. FIRST & ONLY OBSCURE EDITION. AN EXCEPTIONALLY RARE 13TH CENTURY WOODBLOCK PRINT This FUDOH MYO-OH is a thirteenth century Late Heian [1185-1336] A.D. Buddhist work and is represented showing one-hundred individual Buddhist images, woodblock printed. . WHAT IS FUDOH MUYO-OH: FUDOH MYO-OH was one of the supernatural guardians of the paradise of the Amida Buddha. Also known commonly as the "Immovable Wisdom King," is the patron deity of the Yamabushi. He usually portrayed holding a sword and a lariat, clad in rags, has one fang pointing up and another pointing down, and a braid on one side of his head. It is also know in Chinese as BU DONG MING WANG. * PULSATING: Jon Rosenfield stated: "Overcrowded, pulsating with bristling energy, this sheet of one hundred tiny stamped images of Fudoh is typical of those found inside Buddhist statues of the 13th century." See his book cited below. * FUDO MYOO: In Sanskrit: Acalanatha, was the principal of the Myojh or "Enlightened Kings" of Esoteric Buddhism, A manifestation of Dainichi and a powerful conquer of evil, he is shown in many frightening aspects. Commonly depicted in very early woodblock prints with a fiery Mandala behind his head. See references below for Wikipedia citation. * This print was found in the Toh-ji [Eastern Temple], Kyoto. from the Shingon Buddhist sect. This is located next to the famous Rashomon gateway to the Heian capitol [now Kyoto]. It was formerly known as Kyoh-oh-gokoku [The Temple for the Defense of the Nation by Means of the King of Doctrines] believed to defend the nation. * This work upon discovery was first considered to have been printed in the Heian period [794-1185], later after study, it is currently believed to have been printed in the Kamakura [1185-1392] and is so cited by Baskett and Rosenfield to be this period. This Inbutsu [woodblock print] along with several others, was rolled up, then placed inside a hollow place in a Fudoh Myoh-oh statue and left for over nearly a millennium. In the 1960's Japanese temple monks began to conserve and preserve ancient sculptures in the Toh-ji temple and therefore discovered these prints. * Monk's efforts brought to light a few rare bundles of these prints, undisturbed. In an effort to save the structure and sculptures a very few were given to patrons of the temple in gratitude for substantial donations, which has been a common practice for over 2000 years in Japan, China and Korea. Because these prints were left sealed inside the statues, they were preserved in extraordinary condition. In some cases a few worms or insects penetrated and left some damage to the hand-made Washi mulberry paper, sadly this was unavoidable. Ours is one of those presented to a patron. Mosaku discusses this on pages 29, 30. * TOH-JI TEMPLE: UNESCO designated this as part of the Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto" a World Heritage Site. The temple is located Minami-ku near the intersection of Omiya and Kujo Streets, southwest of Kyoto Station. Toh-ji is often associated with Kobo Daishi [Kukai]. The well-known Buddhist priest was put in charge of Toh-ji in 823 by order of Emperor Saga. The temple's principal image is of Yakushi Nyorai, the Medicine Buddha. * PRINTING AS A DAILY DEVOTION: Ishida points out this on p.30-31, discussing the Heian practice of worshipers printing a number of Buddhist images each day or month to fulfill a religious vow. Printing these images gave merit and virtue to the printer, thereby increasing their position in the Buddhist Sangha [community]. Temples encouraged the Sangha to print images as that aided in soliciting donations. "Donors were allowed to pay for the printing of Buddhist images to be placed inside of statues. This served the purpose of temple finance in much the same way as printed appeals for contributions. The images were never distributed to the people but were instead stored away in sculpted images." See Ishida p.31. * Every morning as part of a daily regimen, women of the Imperial court would print Buddhist images using woodblocks on sheets of thin mulberry Washi paper as religious observance, much like saying prayers every morning. After an appropriate number of pages were printed, the sheets were rolled and tied in bundles and then inserted into the hollow interior of sculptures. * PRINTING TECHNIQUE: This print was likely printed from a single block containing ten images, then printed ten times on a single sheet, yielding a total of one-hundred images in all. See Baskett p.30. Upon closer observation, taking a single image, the third one from the right, and comparing it to all above there are the exact specks of dust influencing the printing of the flame lines in the upper left quadrant. This is ample evidence to support both Ishida and Baskett's idea that the print was done by use of a single block containing ten images then stamped from the top ten times on a single sheet of paper. * RARITY: The print is exceptionally rare. Only a few examples have been cited, published or illustrated. Apparently this image only came to light in the 1960's and very few came to public view, those few that were given to patrons eluded the usual scholars and their publications. It was not uncommon for patrons of Buddhist temples in Japan to covet and hold their gifts from the temple for several reasons. Namely, the need and desire to remain unknown to the general public for their donations, which were done for the right reasons, avoiding any public acknowledgement. Secondly, there are moral questions vis-à-vis accepting "compensation/gifts" from monks for donations. Above all, donors do not like others to know their private business and so the prints given in acknowledgement by monks commonly remains a private matter. * CONDITION: The work has some worming on the upper left and right edges, where it was rolled up and stored inside a sculpture. All one-hundred images are present, there is some loss to eight of the images on the sides, and other old worming though not major but nevertheless has left its mark on the interior. The print was kept relatvely safe inside a sculpture of Amida Buddha for some 900 years. During that time natural attrition rate to bugs or moisture has taken a toll on this kind of print. It is therefore natural to see some loss and other minor defects. . Unfortunately almost all of the very few prints similar to this one have survived only in fragmented pieces, and none are cited nor illustrated in Ishida, They seem to have eluded the scrutiny of Ishida, and most other studies of early Buddhist woodblock prints. *** REFERENCES: BASKET, Mary: FOOTPRINTS OF THE BUDDHA: Japanese Buddhist Prints from American and Japanese Collections.

        A SUITE OF 10 HAND-PRINTED STENCIL PRINTS SHOWS THE METHOD OF HANDMADE PAPER-MAK

      [Japan c.1960]. Ten sheets, on deckle-edge hand-made Washi. paper, 10 polychrome stencil or "Katazome" prints, very good. likely done in a very small and LIMITED EDITION OF CA. 200. COPIES, 33.5 x 40.5 cm., a complete suite. ALWAYS RARE. SUPERB "KATAZOME" COLOR STENCILS BY A "NATIONAL TREASURE" CREATED BY A "LIVING NATIONAL TREASURE" . Keisuke Serizawa [1895-1984] was named a Living National Treasure in 1956 by the Japanese Emperor. A leader in modern folk art, his technique known as "Katazome," or stencil dyeing was a pioneer effort. Born in Shizuoka in 1895, he has been the leading exponent for stencil dyeing ["Katazome"] on cloth and paper. He applied his technique to hand-made Japanese Washi paper and was an active illustrator of books. He used paper cut-out patterns then applied colors to the stencils. His works are highly coveted by museums & collectors throughout the world. . Serizawa was the leading exponent for the Sosaku movement [Creative Art Movement] along with his close friends: Yanagi Soetsu, Hamada Shoji and Bernard Leach among others. His works have been hailed as the most typical & charming folk-arts from Japan. * This suite shows Serizawa's great interest and support of the hand-made papermakers and their villages of Northern Japan. The hand process of paper making is done in the winter, when the plants are dormant and the fibers are easily removed. This process requires the makers to immerse their hands in the freezing cold clear river water to separate the fibers and to perform the other hand processes involving freezing cold water, which had inhibited young would-followers of this folk-art from continuing. Few makers are found today using the old and most traditional time-honored methods. * This suite then shows the whole process of hand-made Washi paper from beginning to end in a tribute to the Ogawa village paper-maker's stamina and stubborn attitude to stick with the old ways. Papermaking by hand is now a dying art in Japan, hand-made paper makers are now few and ever dwindling. This is a graphic record of the process and a superb and fine example of Serizawa's unique "Kataezome" technique and printing process on that hand-made Washi paper. This Washi paper is of an unusual large, Deluxe broadside size and was likely made especially for Serizawa to do this series and is 33 x 40.5 cm., except for the last example which is on stiff handmade-paper which is 33 x 38 cm. printed in Aizuri or with indigo-blue ink. Suites or even single prints of Serizawa's work are now exceptionally rare & seldom found on the market for sale. The charm of his illustrations are legendary, with delicate and subtle colors. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: Fine Arts Gallery of San Diego: MINGEI FOLK ARTS OF JAPAN, p.[10-11] for a photos and essay about him. * Six prints from this series are cited & illustrated in the SHIZUOKA MUNICIPAL SERIZAWA KEISUKE MUSEUM OF ART, as item 9 on pages 16-17. * Bunsho Jugaku: NIHON NO KAMI: HANDMADE PAPERS OF JAPAN It is noteworthy to say, that Serizawa worked with Jugaku and even illustrated his book about Washi Japanese handmade papers with his lovely series of papermaking images. * Martha Longenecker in concert with the Mingei International Museum, La Jolla, 1979: SERIZAWA, an exhibition catalogue from June 23-October 14, 1979, for additional biographical notes and illustrated color examples of his work. * Color scans can be sent by email.

      New York: Random House, (1960). First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine in a Very Good example of the scarce trial state of the dustwrapper with typical light soiling and a small chip at the head of the spine. Housed in a fine cloth slipcase. Styron's third book, this copy in the very scarce trial dustwrapper of light green paper with red lettering containing only the title, author, and publisher on the spine and the author on the front cover with the title in green letters on a red background. The only other printed information is the price of $5.95 printed in red on the front inside flap.

        Midsummer Night's Dream

      1960 - BRITTEN, Benjamin. A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Opera in Three Acts. Op. 64. Libretto adapted from William Shakespeare by Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears. Vocal Score by Imogen Holst and Martin Penny. London: Boosey & Hawkes, (1960). Quarto, original paper wrappers. $3800.First edition of the piano-vocal score, inscribed by Britten on the title page to Meredith Davies, who conducted the North American premiere of the opera in 1961: “For Meredith with every good wish from Benjamin Britten. Aldeburgh 1960.”Realizing that he did not have enough time to commission a libretto for a new opera to be performed at the opening of Jubilee Hall in Aldeburgh, Britten turned with his friend and confidante Peter Pears to Shakespeare, discarding half the text of Dream and distributing some of the rest among other parts; the opera was completed in under seven months, and first performed at Aldeburgh in 1960 with Pears as Flute and Britten conducting. “Shakespeare has suffered some terrible operatic settings, and yet he has also inspired four or five of the greatest operas ever written, Arguably, one of these is Britten’s adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream" (Boyden, 594). “A magnificently rich operatic score” (New Grove 3:294). Meredith Davies, one of the great British conductors of the 20th century, worked closely with Britten over the course of two decades. In addition to presenting the North American premiere of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, he also conducted its 1961 performance at the Aldeburgh festival and was chosen to conduct (along with Britten himself) at the historic first performance of Britten’s War Requiem at Coventry Cathedral in 1962. Text in German and English. Signed by Davies in pencil on the front cover, occasional pencil notations throughout.Interior fine, light wear and soiling to original wraps. A near-fine inscribed copy with a fine association. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        The Caretaker.

      London: Methuen & Co., 1960. First edition. Octavo, original wrappers. Signed by Harold Pinter on the title page. Very good in wrappers as issued. Uncommon signed. It was with The Caretaker that Harold Pinter had his first major success, and its production history since it was first performed in 1960 has established the work as a landmark in twentieth-century drama. The obsessive caretaker, Davies, whose papers are in Sidcup, is a classic comic creation, and his uneasy relationship with the enigmatic Aston and Mick established the author's individuality with an international audience.

        Rivina canescens (Rivina humulus, Rouge Plant)

      Bodycolour on vellum mounted on thin card with green painted frame, unsigned. Caption "Sp[ecies] Pl[antarum] p. 177 [by Linnaeus] Drawing numbered 134, lower right. Auction cutting of unknown date or auction house (though possibly Sotheby's, 1960's, 70's) on verso attributes the painting to Ehret. Rare watercolour on vellum, unsigned, attributed to Georg Ehret The distinctive lettering, wording, numbering and painted mount, as well as the exquisite handling of the botanical portrait itself indicate beyond reasonable doubt that this is the work of Georg Dionysius Ehret, the great 18th century German botanical artist, who lived and worked in England for the last 34 years of his life. This fine, accomplished watercolour drawing undoubtedly comes from his English years and is one of the rich trove of drawings that was collected in albums (hence the number in the lower right corner), and then later dispersed as the virtuoso aristocratic collectors of the era passed away. Created in a happy conjunction of scientific interest and aesthetic sensibility, Ehret's watercolours epitomize the hopeful and enlightened view of the period when it looked as though all the elements and workings of the world would soon be known and properly valued. Ehret's drawing of the Rouge plant exemplifies the characteristics that make his work so outstanding, which can be said to be simplicity itself, he was able to let the plant speak for itself, not as a specimen but as a particular plant who for the moment represents its species. The effect achieved is very close to musical, especially in this drawing. Calman, Ehret, Flower Painter Extraordinary.

        TESTA DI FAUNO

      PARIGI, AU PONT DES ARTS, 1960 - Tavola originale tratta da album a fogli sciolti, esemplare 47 / 175, in prima tiratura, composto da frontespizio tipografico, frontespizio litografato a colori su disegno di Picasso, foglio con testo di Jaime Sabartès, 11 tavole litografate a colori su carta avorio incise da Daniel Jacomet, 1 carta recante il colophon e cartella editoriale in tela beige recante il titolo in rosso sul piatto superiore. Il foglio è tratto da un pregevole suite che riproduce con il mezzo litografico, in formato originale, i dipinti su carta della serie La Joie de Vivre, eseguiti da Picasso ad Antibes sulla Costa Azzurra fra l'agosto e il settembre 1946. Le tavole recano la potente capacità di sintesi tipiche dello stile picassiano. I soggetti delle raffigurazioni sono principalmente due: le teste di fauno e la natura morta. Il fauno, colto talora nell'atteggiamento di suonare il flauto, è nella pittura di Picasso il simbolo di una condizione al tempo stesso umana e ferina, appagata e in pieno accordo con gli istinti della natura. Le nature morte sono composte di oggetti comuni, come un gruppo pesci o una caffettiera, che alludono ai semplici piaceri della vita. Le immagini sono risolte con segni energici, in nero e a colori, alternati o sovrapposti a campiture di colori piatti, sapientemente alternati fra loro. Esemplare in buono stato conservativo. 0

Author's presentation copy & fine association. Beckett's inscription reads: "for Teresita with love from Sam London, 1.3.84". A one act play, with nothing but the title character and a tape recorder on stage, Krapp's Last Tape was written for the Irish actor Patrick Magee in 1958. It was originally performed as a curtain-raiser for Endgame, though continues to be performed as a stand alone feature to this day. Teresita Garcia-Suro, costume designer and actress who worked with Rick Cluchey as part of the San Quentin Drama Workshop. She worked with Beckett when he directed performances of Krapp's Last Tape and Endgame staged at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago in 1980. She married Rick Cluchey, founder of the San Quentin Drama Workshop, who has also cheekily added his ownership inscription In March 1984, both Garcia-Suro and Cluchey were in London with Beckett who was overseeing a staging of Godot, directed by Walter Asmus that was due to feature at the Adelaide Festival in Australia that year. Cluchey played Pozzo.

        À bout de souffle [Breathless] (Original Pressbook for the 1960 film)

      Paris: Les Films Impéria / Films Around the World, 1960. Original pressbook for the 1960 film. A fascinating object, created in a die-cut style we have never seen duplicated, made by Films Around the World, the distributor that picked up the film for international distribution. The only copy we have ever seen. With a middle splash page containing a grouping of blurbs that anyone could retire on critically, including Jean Cocteau, Jean-Paul Sartre, Maurice Bessy, Jacques Becker, and Joseph Kessel. Godard's first feature film, written by François Truffaut, and arguably the most important film of the French New Wave. In addition to promoting an entirely new approach to cinema, cross cultural boundaries were broken, as the film's female star was American actress Jean Seberg, and her boyfriend, Jean-Paul Belmondo's Michel, is a thug obsessed with Humphrey Bogart. 14 pages, saddle stitched, 11 x 17 inches. Very Good plus, with a single horizontal fold at the center. Criterion Collection 408.

        Le testament d'Orphée [Testament of Orpheus] (Original French lobby card photo)

      Paris: Cinédis, 1960. Original black-and-white photographic lobby card from the 1960 film, "Testament of Orpheus," Jean Cocteau's final work in the cinema. The last film in Cocteau's "Orphic" trilogy, following "The Blood of a Poet" (1930) and "Orphée" (1950). The only film in the trilogy featuring Cocteau himself, as an aging poet who knows he is dying (as indeed he was), his greatest desire being to experience rebirth so that he can qualify for celestial immortality. With cameos by Pablo Picasso, Charles Aznavour, bullfighter Luis Miguel Dominguen, and Yul Brynner. A few seconds of color are spliced in at one point, a surreal effect used prior to this film in "Portrait of Jennie" (1948) and later in Samuel Fuller's "Shock Corridor" (1963). Having run out of funds in mid-production, Cocteau was given the prize money won by François Truffaut for "Les Quatre Cents Coups" in 1959 to complete filming. Truffaut, the father of the French New Wave, produced the film. 12 x 9.5 inches, double weight. Near Fine. Small French cinema photo store logo stamped on the verso. Criterion Collection 69.
