        Sharaku, A Complete Collection. Reproduction by the Adachi Institute of Woodcut Prints

      OFFERING: An extraordinary publishing endeavor, more than 10 years in the making, the two issued deluxe volumes with texts in English and 72 tipped-in, facsimile reproductions, individually sleeved in 460 x 360 mm mats with mounted English and Japanese labels. No further volumes were published because of the much higher than expected production costs. 55 of the facsimile reproductions are color woodblock printed, made from new woodblocks with traditional nishiki-e methods, using examples of authentic Sharaku prints. Of these, 36 are finished with applied powdered mica, using kira-zuri technique. 17 facsimile reproductions are collotypes of b/w print designs, attributed by Yoshida to Sharaku and published for the first time. Yoshida's texts, (his 1943 monograph on Sharaku was the first by a Japanese scholar), draw on years of original research. EDITION NOTE: The Adachi Institute was established in 1928 to reproduce rare ukiyo-e prints in the original woodblock print format.Because of Adachi's working methods, the edition would have been limited to no more than 200 unnumbered sets. RARITY: Rare, I know of no other complete specimen offered for sale in the last 15 years. A worldwide institution search finds 19 sets, including the National Diet Library of Japan, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York Public Library and University of Hawaii.

Scuffs and rubs, some bottom corner wear; interior of Portfolio I with edge toning. Portfolio Labels: Good, some soiling and rubs.

(Mica with a black sheen was used for Sharaku prints until a sumptuary edict by the Tokugawa Shogunate outlawed its use. Sharaku subsequently designed prints that called for red ground mica.) B) The complete set of 8 full-length Kabuki actor figure prints (hosoban) with applied red mica, including the 7 known prints with 2 full-length figures from the equally esteemed Period II. C) 4 prints of the young Sumo wrestler, Daidozan, three from Period III and the sole oban print from Period IV.

        Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus

      Routledge & Kegan Paul, London 1960 - 207 Pp + Publisher's Catalog At Rear, Dated 1959. 1960 Reprint, The Eighth Impression Of The Book First Published 1922, With A Few Corrections In 1933. This Example With The Translation Uniquely Corrected In Pencil Throughout By A Rhodes Scholar Circa 1963-4. The Translation Corrects Obvious, Clear Abscombe's Mistranslations And Omissions To Such A Degree That It Constitutes A New, Corrected Translation. The Translator, William Zaltonoga, A Champion Oxford Boxer While A Rhodes Scholar, Appears To Understand That Wittgenstein Is Discussing How One Thinks About Objects Of One's Own Private Thoughts. Wittgenstein May Be Seen To Make Highly Pointed Conversational Observations Which Tear The Structure Of Consensual Academic Philosophical Thought With Jab After Jab, Demolishing Conventions, Not By Creating A Complete Philosophy But By Identifying How One May Think More Exactly On Matters Of Philosophy And Science And Mathematics, More Exactly Than Historical Consensus Demands, And, By Implication, Showing How Basic Concepts In The Mind Of The Reader Are Woefully Undeveloped If Not Juvenile. The Text In This Translation Makes Such Pointed Observations That It Questions The Basic Intellectual Background And Abilities Of The Intended Audience- Future Educators, Civil Service Managers And Political Policy Makers Educated At Elite Institutions. It Is Understandable How Academics Had Not Previously Bothered With A More Correct Translation, As The Book Is Virtually Unteachable Beyond The Text Itself, Unless One's Teacher Is Smarter Than Wittgenstein, Who Wrote It For The Students. An Important Addition To The Wittgenstein Canon, Both For Identifying The Inexplicable Inadequacies Or Intentional Dumbing-Down By His Translators, And For The Exactness Of The New Translation Offered Printed Here But Entirely Redone By Pears And Mcguiness, Perhaps Not As Well Done As Here By Zaltonaga. [For Another Good Example Of A Post-World War I Mistranslation, Also Somewhat Political, But In This Instance Translation From The Russian, Compare Any English Translation Of Zamyatin's "We" To The 1991 First Translation Into English By A Native Russian Speaker, Raduga Publishers, Moscow, 1991, Where The One Is Almost Unrecognizable From The Other, As Literature. ] [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

A very good or better copy, with some light wear and chipping to the spine, but with the spine intact and extremely sturdy (uncommon for this edition), some wear to the extremities, bright boards, library stamp and bookplate to the front free endpaper, some very faint spotting and minor residue to the pastedowns, otherwise extremely bright and fresh interior. Overall, an attractive and presentable copy. Marc Chagall (1887-1985) was a prolific artist, born in Belarus and active in France, who is best known for his use of color and images drawn from folklore. His Jewish heritage and spiritual interests manifested themselves throughout his artistic career. After successfully collaborating with Parisian art dealer Ambroise Vollard, Chagall created a series of 105 etchings inspired by the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament), begun 1930-1939 and completed 1952-1956. The etchings were published together in 1956 (the English title was Illustrations for the Bible) and he received much critical success. A complementary publication, Drawings for the Bible contains 96 heliogravure (photogravure) reproductions of Chagall's drawings from 1958-1959 "on biblical themes which in general he had not dealt [with] for his illustrations for the Bible reproduced in Verve 33/34." Additionally, this edition has 24 color lithographs that Chagall designed specifically for this volume, including a color pictorial cover. Although the images are sometimes difficult to identify without referring to the image captions at the rear of the text, this volume is both a unique presentation of the Hebrew Bible and a collection of striking and beautiful artwork by a modern master.

Beginning in Redwood City, the travellers made their way with wagon and mules southwards to Searsville (now Woodside) on the Old La Honda Road, San Gregorio, Pescadero and reaching as far south as Santa Cruz. The author provides almost daily desciptions of their adventures, camping sites, fishing, hiking and much more. This is a bound typescript of the account originally written by Wilhelmina de Fremery to share her adventure with her family in Holland. It was originally written in Dutch and later translated into English by her brother, Henri M. Suermondr "...to enable the American-born children to read it with understanding, but no pictures were included in that version." His text was used in this verbatim copy with the addition of reproductions of the original photographs.

        A page from Muhammad Ali's lecture on the Nation of Islam signed in the text with a vintage " Muhammad "

      n.p.: , [1960s]. n.p., [1960s]. 8" x 5". "Autograph Manuscript Signed ""Muhammad"" in text, 1 page, 8"" x 5"", [n.p., n.d., but c. 1964-early 1970s, being a page from a lecture he delivered on behalf of the Nation of Islam. The page bears two minor contemporary ink smudges, else fine condition.The page reads in full: ""with them, But the South is the blame for mistreating us the So Called Negroes, The Hon Elijah Muhammad is between life and death. And he have to say these things.""Ali attended his first Nation of Islam meeting in 1961 and soon became an intimate of Malcom X. In 1964 he formally joined the Nation, and its leader Elijah Muhammad anointed him Muhammad (one who is worthy of praise) Ali (fourth rightly guided caliph). Only a few weeks after he joined the Nation, Malcolm X broke to convert to mainstream Sunni, but Ali remained with the Nation (a move he cited as a major regret later in life). Citing his religious beliefs, he resisted the draft landing him in court.The subsequent legal cases and appeals kept him out of boxing for some time, and he toured the country lecturing on Islam. In 1975 Ali left the Nation himself, turning, like Malcolm X, to Sunni Islam (he became an adherent of Sufism in 2005)."
