        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 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

        Collection of 400 Photographs from a Camden, New Jersey Family

      Camden, New Jersey 1960 - A collection of more than 400 photos from a Camden, New Jersey family including 40 Civil War-era tintypes, 30 cabinet cards, and the rest various different format photographs taken between 1900 and the early 1960s, various sizes and with a few back marks from Virginia, but most from the Philadelphia, Camden, and Trenton areas. The photos are generally very good or better with some photos clipped at the corners from mounting, wear to some of the edges, and a few of the tintypes darkening or with their finish peeling. The photos feature matron Mary A. Fleming and the extended families of her daughters Elizabeth Nardin, Bessie W. Steelman, and Emma Gordon, including their husbands, children, and relations in various formal and candid shots: posing with pets, laughing with friends, kids playing, a flood, a house being built (likely due to the flood), and others. Of note are about a dozen military-related photographs featuring: six Civil War soldiers each posing in uniform; four of World War I soldiers in formation and training; a group shot of World War II sailors posing on the deck of a ship; and four of USO entertainers performing at an army hospital. The photos are accompanied by a few handwritten notes referencing various family members, as well as what was once a red velvet photo album, now only a tattered remnant of its former self, with a handful of additional scattered photos still intact. A nice collection of photos documenting 100 years of a New Jersey family's history.

        Photo Album]: African-American Family

      1960 - Oblong quarto measuring 8.5" x 12". Brown leather over paper boards with "photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 59 sepia toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring 1.5" x 1.5" to 6.5" x 8.5" without captions. Near fine photo album with edgewear with very good photographs with some creasing and occasional tape repairs.An African-American family photo album with photographs spanning from about 1910 to the 1960. From the very few captions it can be presumed that the family was from the New Jersey area. The photographs are not in chronological order and begin with photos that appear to be from the late 1950s of cars and children playing. The older photos are mostly portraits of family members posing in nice clothes. One page shows a collection of eight single photos cut from a photo strip of smiling men and women and one child. There are also men in military uniform on an army base which appear to be from the Vietnam-era. On 6.5" x 8.5" photograph shows a group of men who appear to be part of a musical group as they are posed in a way that appears to be more professional. Another 6" x 8" photo shows a group of school children in roughly 1920 posing as a group with Cape May, New Jersey written in a corner. Additionally laid in is a professional photograph of a man from the family graduating from High School.A modest but nice collection of an African-American family over fifty years.

Second printing. Leonid Kantorovich (1912-1986) is best known as the only Russian economist to have become a Nobel Laureate. In 1942 Kantorovich had already written the first version of this monograph. He was so far ahead of his time-and thought so far outside contemporary notions of political economy-that the book was not published until 17 years later. Only then did his pioneering ideas begin to be recognized and accepted by other economists. Subsequently, this book was translated into many languages. Ultimately, he was recognized in the West with the Nobel Prize. The book itself is a summary of the author's long-term research into methods of linear programming which is further developed here and applied to economic planning. The core of this book, and its main value, consists in its use of specific examples in modeling practical solutions to economic problems.

        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 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 distribu

        Adult Pulp Cover Original Art

      1960 - A collection of original artwork for several adult-oriented paperback pulp novels from the early 1960s, including six small color mockups, measuring 4" x 7", and four large preliminary pencil sketches, measuring 20"x 26". The sketches have an applied paper boarder secured with masking tape and are somewhat chipped along the edges, near fine, while the mockups have only the slightest touch of wear to a couple of corners, else fine. The art appears to be all from the same unknown artist with the preliminary sketches representing more detailed renditions of all but two of the color mock ups. The text on the mockups is not readable except for the titles and a few scattered words, likely as intended. Our research was not able to determine definitively whether these covers were ever published or if these are spec illustrations done by an artist to secure work. The Exotic by Carter Brown was published several times, the earliest being a 1961 Signet paperback, but neither it nor any of the other printings we examined matched the artwork found here. This is also the case for The Night It Happened, Demon Lovers, and Big Blondes. The remaining two titles illustrated here, Wild Heat and Adorable Creatures, could not be located at all. Likewise we were unable to identify with any publisher the crossed key logo found on all but one of the covers. Two of the titles, Demon Lovers and Adorable Creatures, are particularly notable for their obvious lesbian themes. An interesting group of titillating artwork from the golden age of the pulp paperback.
