"Picasso, Matisse, Chagall, Miró, Braque, Dubuffet, Léger, Giacometti ... have enriched their own expressions and contemporary art a new area of ??research. With Mourlot, and thanks to him, lithography has acquired both personality and future. " (Pierre Cabanne, in fifty years of lithography).Already printer of the two volumes of the Bible illustrated by Chagall, Mourlot contributed to the formation of the artist in the art of lithography in the 1950s it was at this time that Chagall indeed begins to attend workshop Mourlot to learn the lithographic processes and he became friends with the artisans of printing, including Charles Sorlier.So is this the top of his game as Chagall realizes this Exodus story that coincides with the completion of his immense lithographic and pictorial work on the Bible began in 1930 at the initiative of Ambroise Vollard. This decorative cycle entitled Biblical Message T will also behind the creation of the Marc Chagall Museum, originally the National Museum of Biblical Message Marc - Chagall.Extremely rare first test printed on Japan, the best paper and the best for color prints.

      Les éditions de minuit. Edition originale, un des 100 exemplaires hors commerce numérotés sur B.F.K. de Rives, seuls grands papiers avec 512 autres B.F.K. de Rives.Precious copy inscribed and dated April 1966 by Beckett to his friend the painter Geer (Van Velde) and his wife Lise.Nice copy."What to say of the sliding planes, the shimmering contours, the cut-out figures in the fog, the balance that any little thing can break, breaking and re-forming themselves under our very eyes? How to talk about the colors that breathe and pant? Of the swarming stasis? Of this world without weight, without force, without shadow? Here everything moves, swims, fells, comes back, falls apart, re-forms. Everything stops, non-stop. One would say it's the revolt of the internal molecules of a stone a split second before its disintegration. That is literature" (The van Veldes' Art, or the World and the Trousers, in Cahiers d'Art n°11-12, Paris 1945).Beckett here is not talking - despite how it may appear - about his literary oeuvre, but about the paintings of Geer Van Velde, going on to add a few lines later "[Bram] Van Velde paints distance. G[eer] Van Velde paints succession." This elegy, published on the occasion of the double exhibition of the Van Veldes (Geer at Maeght's and Bram at the Galerie Mai) is the first important text on these painters, more or less unknown to the public at the time: "We've only just started spouting nonsense about the Van Velde brothers, and I'm the first. It's an honor." This is also the first critical text written directly in French by a young Irish writer who had not, as yet, published anything in France.Thus, the first and most important of Beckett's writings on art, composed at the dawn of his literary career, establishes - right from the start - a fundamental relationship between his developing work and his friends' art: "Thus this text has often been read in a hollow or in the mirror, as one of the rare designations of Beckett's poetry (to come) by the man himself, a sort of anamorphic program of writing," (Un pantalon cousu de fil blanc : Beckett et l'épreuve critique by Pierre Vilar).A real statement of dramaturgical intent, this fundamental text whose introspective value Beckett lays out from the introduction on ("one does nothing but tell stories with words") ushers in the writer's most fruitful creative period. In essence, like Apollinaire and Cendrars, Beckett draws from the artistic problems of his contemporaries the catalyst of his own future writing through "the deepest questioning of narrative, figurative or poetical presuppositions" (Pascale Casanova in Beckett l'abstracteur).The major influence of modern painting on the narrative structure - or destructuring - of Beckett's drama and novels would be pointed out and examined by a number of thinkers, among them Gilles Deleuze, Julia Kristeva and Maurice Blanchot. It was, in fact, with the art of the Van Veldes (first Geer then Bram) that Beckett began to formalize this desire to translate the pictorial question into dramaturgical terms. Thus it was that he rejected Nicolas de Staël's set design for Godot, since: "the set must come out of the text without adding anything to it. As for the visual comfort of the audience, you can imagine how much I care. Do you really think you can listen with the backdrop of Bram's set, or see anything other than him?" (Letter to Georges Duthuit, 1952).When he met Geer in 1937, "Beckett was going through a major existential crisis and had just been reworking his first novel, Murphy, which had been rejected by a great many publishers. He was lost in alcohol, leaving Ireland and moving once and for all to Paris" (Le Pictural dans l'œuvre de Beckett, Lassaad Jamoussi). He returned from a long artistic journey in Germany, where he was marked by classical works as well as contemporary art - it was during this journey that he discovered Caspar David Friedrich's Two Men Contemplating the Moon, his source for Waiting for Godot.Art was thus at the heart of his creative thinking and the friendship that would tie him to Geer and later his brother Bram and their sister Jacoba (with whom his relationship may have been more than merely friendly), and which would profoundly influence his life and writing. His first writing on art is a short piece on Geer Van Velde, whose works he pressed on his new lover Peggy Guggenheim when she set up her new London gallery. Despite the relative failure of the exhibition (which followed Kandinsky's), he got his friend a one-year scholarship from Peggy. James Knowlson even thinks that "if Beckett maintained close links with Peggy for a long time, it was first and foremost because she could be convinced to give his artist friends a serious helping hand, starting with Geer Van Velde" (in Beckett, p. 474). Enigmatic, the little piece that Beckett wrote at the time at Peggy's request already contained a dramaturgical kernel of thought: " Believes painting should mind its own business, i.e. colors. i.e no more say Picasso than Fabritius, Vermeer. Or inversely."   Slower to develop, his friendship with Bram and interest in the latter's painting slowly changed Beckett's outlook on Geer's art and when, ten years after his first meeting the brothers, he wrote The World and the Trousers,  Beckett brought up to date a duality symbolized by the title, taken from an anecdote given as a legend to the article. The world is the "imperfect" work of God, made in six days, to which the tailor compares the perfection of his trousers, made over six months.The link between this anecdote and the Van Velde brothers is perhaps to be found in the second essay Beckett devoted to them, in 1948, Peintres de l'empêchement [Painters of the Problem] (Derrière le miroir n° 11/12) : "One of them said: I cannot see the object in order to represent it because I am who I am. There are always two sorts of problems - the object-problem and the 'eye-problem... Geer Van Velde is an artist of the former sort... Bram Van Velde of the latter."Resistance of the object or impotence of the artist, this tale, the "true primary narrative core in kôan zen form," (P. Vilar) would later find itself scattered throughout Beckett's work and would more specifically take centre stage in Endgame, whose similarity, by the by, with the art of Geer Van Velde was noted by Roger Blin. "At the time, he was friends with the Dutch brothers Geer and Bram Van Velde, both painters. Geer was a painter in the style of Mondrian. I have the feeling that Beckett saw Endgame as a painting by Mondrian with very tidy partitions, geometric separations and musical geometry," (R. Blin, Conversations avec Lynda Peskine in Revue d'Esthétique).    Beckett's growing affinity for Bram Van Velde's work and the energy he put into promoting his work, especially to the galerie Maeght or his friend the art historian Georges Duthuit, was no doubt to the detriment of his relationship with Geer. Nonetheless, despite some misunderstandings, their friendship remained unbroken; as did the silent but anxious dialogue that the writer maintained with the art of the younger Van Velde brother, two of whose large canvases he owned. "The big painting by Geer finally gave me a sign. Shame that it should have turned out so badly. But perhaps that's not true after all" (letter to Georges Duthuit, March 1950). "Geer shows great courage. Ideas that are a little cutting, but maybe only in appearance. I have always had a great respect for them. But not enough, I think" (letter to Mania Péron, August 1951)The death of Geer Van Velde in 1977 affected Beckett deeply and coincided with a period of intense nostalgia during which the writer decided to give himself over to "a great clear-out" of his house so as to live between "walls as grey as their owner." Confiding his state of mind to his friend, the stage designer Jocelyn Herbert, Beckett bore witness to the indefatigable affection he had nurtured for the painter over forty years: "more canvases on display, including the big Geer Van Velde behind the piano."A precious witness to the friendship of these fellow travelers who had, ever since checking the veracity of the game of chess played by Murphy and Mr. Endon for Beckett's first novel, tackled together the great challenges of modernity: "It's that, deep down, they don't care about painting. What they're interested in is the human condition. We'll come back to that" (Beckett on the Van Velder brothers in The World and the Trousers).Spine lightly sunned as usual for Molloy and L'Innomable, a tiny tear (not serious) to foot of spine of the latter.  Les éditions de minuit Paris 1966 14,5x19,5cm broché

He became the first resident Bishop of Chiapa, and the first officially appointed "Protector of the Indians." As noted in Wikipedia and elsewhere, his extensive writings, the most famous being "A Short Account of the Destruction of the Indies" and "Historia de Las Indias," chronicle the first decades of colonization of the West Indies and elsewhere in the Americas, and focus particularly on the atrocities committed by the colonizers against the indigenous peoples..

In 1958 he earned a B.A. from the Julliard School of Music, and in 1960 he received his M.A. from the Julliard in orchestral conducting. In addition to being a composer, Fine was an artist and poet, whose compositions ranged from instrumental works to incidental music to off-Broadway theatre. Although perhaps most widely known within contemporary discourse for his Fluxus works and as a leading exponent of the Mail-art movement (in collaboration with the late Ray Johnson), Fine's cross-disciplinary activities also overlapped with the creative productions of his friends and colleagues Phillip Glass, John Cage, George Maciunas and Allen Ginsberg.

      Austin: The San Felipe Press. Fine in Very Good- dust jacket. 1966. First Edition. Hardcover. 8vo 8" - 9" tall; First edition, limited to 500 copies, this being copy 193, signed by the author on the limitation page, with a note from the author laid in. 10 1/2" x 8 3/4". Red boards in colorful original dust jacket. 127 pages. This is the story of a Confederate regiment which formed in South Central Texas and solemnly pledged to support the Southern cause. There are only very brief notiations in the official records to recount their experiences. The author searched all known records to fill in the missing parts of the story--from family accounts, letters, pictures, diaries, and even a frail, dog-eared hymn book to piece together the history of a portion of the Civil War west of the Mississippi. The result is a vivid account of the valor and endurance of the men of the 32nd Texas Cavalry Regiment, C. S. A. Laid in is a manuscript note from the author in pencil, "If you are a/descendant Please/let me know--/Carl". Condition: A fine book, with a tight solid binding, sharp board corners and clean and unmarked pages. The VG- dust jacket has a small closed tear at the upper end of the front flap, a sunned spine, and a 5" diagonal tear to the upper left corner of the front panel, long ago repaired with tape. The jacket is now protected in a removable archival cover. ; Signed by Author .

Bindings unsoiled and quite attractive. A hint of shelf pull to the lower edges of the boards. 8.75 x 5.75 inches. [22 x 15 cm.] Text blocks firmly bound in. All page edges deckled to a handsome effect. The pastedowns and FEPs in marbled paper of reds, greens and grays. With lxxxvii, 641 and 643-1377 numbered pages. With appendixes and general index. Pages unopened, as issued; i.e., the folding edges of the component sections are still intact at the top and fore-edges, not having been cut. As noted, a facsímile edition, with the facsímile pages on the versos and the transliterations on the opposite rectos. Also with handsomely decorated title pages and embellished capitals throughout, all in B&W. Each volume with a silk satin ribbon page marker. Slipped in is a signed presentation card from sponsor and writer of the foreword, G. Bruno Pagliai. No inscriptions, signatures, labels, bookplate, underlining, highlighting, or other marks observed. Slightest age toning to margins of all pages of both volumes, quite minor. A remarkably clean set of two volumes and a handsome addition to any library shelf on New Spain or the Indians of the Americas. A Very Good Plus copy. These nine inflammatory treatises first appeared, unauthorized, in printed form in Seville, Spain in 1552. All except one appeared in the popular Spanish language and not in the more universal and scholarly Latin. Much has been written on the life and works of the highly controversial Fray Bartolomé de las Casas [1484-1566]. He was a 16th-century Spanish historian, social reformer and Dominican friar. He became the first resident Bishop of Chiapa, and the first officially appointed "Protector of the Indians." As noted in Wikipedia and elsewhere, his extensive writings, the most famous being "A Short Account of the Destruction of the Indies" and "Historia de Las Indias," chronicle the first decades of colonization of the West Indies and elsewhere in the Americas, and focus particularly on the atrocities committed by the colonizers against the indigenous peoples.. First Edition. Full-Leather. Very Good Plus/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Limited Edition.

Easter liturgy in Old Church Slavonic, with title-page and about 20 other pages printed in red and black, the title in a woodcut border and with a woodcut Paschal lamb, a full-page engraving of Jesus's Resurrection on the back of the title-page, and all pages after the title-page with borders made up of 4 woodcut strips.

      - For the Kiev bindery: S. A. Klepikov, "Historical notes on Ukrainian bookbinding", in: The book collector, 15 (1966), pp. 135-142. A Russian Orthodox service book for Easter and the week following it, in the Old Church Slavonic language, printed, published and bound at the Pechersk Lavra (Monastery of the Caves) in Kiev. The monastery was established in the 11th century. After the fall of Constantinople in 1453 the Orthodox Churches in Russia and Ukraine developed independently. The power of the Czars allowed the Russian Orthodox Church to dominate, so that the Ukrainian Church came under the Moscow Patriarchate in 1686. The Monastery of the Caves is therefore now Ukrainian Orthodox, but fell under the authority of the Russian Orthodox Church when the present service book was published. It nevertheless had its own traditions and rites, so that the present book should be regarded as part of the Ukrainian heritage.The only other copy we have located is at Amsterdam University Library, one of three Easter service books by the Kiev Pechersk Lavra recorded on WorldCat, all octavos. With a lengthy cyrillic inscription on an endleaf. The sewing is somewhat loose and as a result a few leaves are tattered at the edges. There are occasional minor smudges and drops of candle wax. Much of the gold-tooling has rubbed off the binding and the spine is slightly damaged. In spite of these minor defects, the book is in good condition, especially for a book of this nature.

        Un apres-midi avec Picasso 85 ans. (An Afternoon with Picasso at 85).

      [Cannes, , 1966]. Quarto (285 × 233). 20 typed sheets in French (rectos only), legibly hand-corrected throughout by Brassai in black ink. Housed in a black cloth album, with each sheet in a separate clear plastic file. In excellent condition, the final page a little creased and with minor loss to right-hand side, affecting one letter. Overall fresh and clean. A superb unpublished and heavily corrected manuscript in French, in which Brassai recounts his visit to Picasso, a long-standing friend, at his home near Cannes. Brassaï, who photographed much of Picasso's work in the 1940s, had published Conversations with Picasso in 1964, in which he created an intimate portrait of Picasso, covering their friendship and artistic collaboration, and recording each of their meetings with minute detail. Picasso said of the volume, "Read this book if you want to understand me." This account is written in a similar style, and during the course of the afternoon, Picasso speaks about his nostalgia for his old studios, his health, his enthusiasm for the recently invented felt-tip pen, his opinion of his own writings, his relationship with his wife Jacqueline, and his views on feminism. Though unmarked as such, it is from the collection of Brassai's close friend and colleague, photographer Stefan Lorant, who founded Picture Post, the pioneering pictorial magazine.

        Program for the Second Piatigorsky Cup: International Grandmaster Chess Tournament July 17 to August 15, 1966

      Piatigorsky Cup Committee, Santa Monica 1966 - 16 unpaginated pages with facsimiles, photographs. Octavo (8 1/2" x 5 3/4") bound in original publisher's spiral spine with red wrappers and cup in silver and black to cover. Signed by all participants next to their photograph in the program along with a short biography of each contestant. (Not listed in Betts) First edition. After the success of the First Piatigorsky Cup (1963), the second was organized by Gregor and Jacqueline Piatigorsky in Santa Monica, California at the Miramar Hotel from July 17-August 15, 1966, with Isaac Kashdan directing. The stellar field included the current and next two World Champions plus a slew of Candidates-level grandmasters in a double-round robin event: Jan Hein Donner, Robert James Fischer, Borislav Ivkov, Bent Larsen, Miguel Najdorf, Tigran Vartanovich Petrosian, Lajos Portisch, Samuel Reshevsky, Boris Spassky, Wolfgang Unzicker. The Piatigorskys invited both Reshevsky and Fischer in spite of the Fischer - Reshevsky (1961) match fiasco. The 1966 Piatigorsky Cup tournament ranks as on of the strongest chess competitions ever held on American soil. It is on a short list that includes New York 1924, New York 1927, and the Sinquefield Cups. Held during the Cold War, when tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union were high, the Piatigorsky Cup represented a triumph of diplomacy. The tournament was a double-robin competition in which all participants played each other twice. The Piatigorskys produced an elegant trophy for the event that featured a "love cup" designed by Tiffany & Company as it centerpiece. With Bobby Fischer participating in the event, ensured that the top American talent of the period was represented in the competition. It also meant that the field of ten players contained one World Champion (Petrosian) as well as two future ones (Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky). After a strong start followed by a disastrous performance mid-tournament Fischer mounted an amazing comeback to tie with the tournament leader Spassky, in the standings. Their game in the penultimate round attracted a record 900 spectators and served as a preview of the excitement the two would generate six years later in their epic 1972 World Chess Championship match in Reykjavik, Iceland. The two played a hard fought draw. Spassky then won his lat game against Jan Hein Donner, who was at the bottom of the standings, while Fisher's game against Petrosian ended in a draw. Spassky achieved a narrow victory over Fischer, winning $5000. Condition: Some of the combs in the spiral binder chipped off else a near fine copy.
