      Arted, Editions d'Art, Paris, 1964 OFFERING: Example no. 38 of 100 from the deluxe issue of the first edition, complete with the commissioned drypoint etching printed on Arches paper, "Combat Antique" [Czwiklitzer 47]. The etching is numbered and boldly signed in pen & ink by Zadkine and the book is stamped 38 on the justification leaf. The deluxe issue was the sole limited edition issue of this important work on the great Belarusian sculptor and was published only in English. Texts include three essays on the life and work, the first extensively researched catalogue raisonné of the sculptures, and the first comprehensive bibliography. This example is exceptional, for it also has an additional, large and superb Zadkine autograph and a signed presentation in English by Ionel Jianou. The b/w etching with its unusual, large gatefold format, with a die-cut 'clerestory window' has two viewing states and stands out, for its multi-perspective design and aversion theme. Unfolded and open, it extends 10.5 x 32.4 inches (266 x 824 mm) without margins and shows ten nude antagonists, eight men attacking or protecting two women. Folded twice and closed, the 'clerestory window' shows a view of the head of the tenth figure, the youngest and smallest man, with an antagonist's hand pressed over his mouth. CONDITION DETAIL: Etching: some bottom edge wear near corners, top edge with trace soiling, fold lines with light wear. / Tissue Leaves: Fine. / Pages: clean and fresh. / Boards: clean; some fading to spine edges at crown and foot, outer tips slightly bumped, crown with slight push-in. / Binding: excellent, spine with light slant. / Book Jacket (now in a protective transparent wrapper): Upper side bright, two edge peels from tight case (one-top, one-bottom); Lower side with yellowing at top and bottom edges; Spine yellowed, crown and foot with light push-in and a minute tear. / Slipcase: light edge wear, bottom corner with two small stains. PAGINATION: Complete; 208 pages illustrated with 98 fine b/w reproductions, most full-page, (one double-page), chiefly an exemplary suite of photograph reproductions of his sculptures, cited in the Grove Dictionary of Art. Two works are accompanied by additional commentary, "Destroyed City" (in the artist's studio), a memorial to the horrors of war and the WWII bombing of Rotterdam by Germany and "Portrait of Van Gogh", from his series of Van Gogh portraits. FORMAT: Publisher's sewn viridian cloth stamped with gilt letters and b/w pictorial book jacket, the upper side reproducing Zadkine's celebrated 1951 sculpture, "Destroyed City" in its public installation. The book is sleeved in an unlettered gray linen and cotton board slipcase with decorative netting pattern. SIZE: 279 x 213 mm. ADDITIONAL IMAGES: by request.

Exemplar der Vorzugsausgabe mit vier von Emil Schumacher signierten Originalradierungen: "h. c. 10" (d. h. hors commerce 10). Dieses Exemplar wurde also überzählig über die 60 numerierten Exemplare der Vorzugsausgabe hinaus gedruckt und gelangte ursprünglich nicht in den Handel, weist jedoch sämtliche Eigenschaften der Vorzugsausgabe auf. Insgesamt betrug die Auflage 160 Exemplare, die übrigen 100 Exemplare erschienen jedoch lediglich numeriert und ohne die Radierungen Schumachers. Unser Exemplar hat unten am Rücken einen unscheinbaren kleinen Fleck und weist leider einen leichten Schaden durch Feuchtigkeit auf: Die Seiten sind am unteren Blattrand durchgängig etwas gewellt, Leinenschuber und Einband haben kaum sichtbar einen schwachen Wasserrand. Trotz dieser Gebrauchsspuren handelt es sich insgesamt jedoch um ein noch gut erhaltenes Exemplar der seltenen zweiten Buchveröffentlichung Brinkmanns und eine der wenigen von Emil Schumacher illustrierten Pressendrucke.

        PROSPECT / issue six / spring nineteen-sixty-four.

      (Cambridge, England): Prospect, 1964. - - Quarto, 10 inches high by 8-1/8 inches wide. Softcover, bound in stapled light blue wrappers decorated in light green and olive along the bottom of both covers. There is only some minor rubbing with faint creases to the corners of the covers. Title leaf and 43 pages plus the colophon. Both the title and colophon pages are printed on fine buff paper stock. Near fine. Limited edition of 500 copies, edited by J.H. Prynne and printed by the Borough Press Limited. The design and layout is by Ross Hill.This RARE Prynne issue, includes the first publication of his poems "Salt Water, Fresh Water", "At the Dark Centre", "Lie of the Other Land", and his translation of Guido Cavalcanti's "Chi E", as well as the first publication of his essay "Tomorrow is Fade Out Night" which was his review of Douglas Woolf's "Fade Out"."The last page of Prospect 5 closed on the note to subscribers that ‘The Editor for the next and future issues will be J.H. Prynne’ and that contributions should be sent to him in Cambridge.The serious nature of this re-established magazine is immediately felt when one looks at the line-up of contributors to Prospect 6: Edward Dorn’s long poem ‘The Land Below’ and his ‘On the Debt My Mother Owed to Sears Roebuck’, Charles Olson’s ‘Going Right Out Of The Century’, a poem from 1961 which would be included in Maximus IV, V. VI, Robert Creeley’s story ‘The Grace’, work by Andrew Hoyem, Andrew Crozier, Donald Davie, the former editor Tony Ward and four of Prynne’s own poems, that were to remain uncollected, including ‘Salt Water, Fresh Water’: There is a detailed account of some aspects of this poem in Birgitta Johansson’s book, The Engineering of Being (Umea University 1997) in which she sees the poem as an address to ‘the world from the position of the condition of being, represented by the mind, which perceives the ‘wash/and seething life’ of the sea’. Johansson relates this poem to Matthew Arnold’s ‘Dover Beach’ in that ‘its rhythms reflect the endless repetition of the waves in its stress pattern’ but also recognises that whereas Arnold discusses how the milieu reflects the mood of the speaker’s soul ‘Prynne addresses the dynamic structure of mind and of the landscape.’ . Prospect 6 appeared in the second half of 1964 and, as it turned out, it was the last issue." [Excerpted from Ian Brinton's "Prynne in Prospect"]. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
