        Specimen Pages of Korean Movable Types

      Los Angeles: Dawson's Book Shop, 1966. Slipcase splitting at top edge, corners a little bumped, slight discolouration of the spine; nonetheless a most attractive book and internally excellent.. Large folio, with introductory text followed by 22 original leaves, each with descriptive letterpress, bound in tradition Korean yellow patterned paper with the slipcase. An important monograph on the history of printing containing actual leaves from Korean books some of which predate the Gutenberg bible. In total 300 individually numbered copies were published, however, only the first 95 copies (termed the 'Primary edition') contain a full suite of 22 original leaves, dating from 1422. This is copy number XXVII of that small group. The next 205 copies. completing the edition, contained progressively less original leaves and unsurprisingly it is the very early printings that were in much shorter supply. (For example, copy 126 had 15 original specimens, the earliest dated 1484, while copy 176 had just three). The samples in this book were collected and described by Melvin P. McGovern, Director of Education at the United States Army Headquarters in Korea, who has contributed an erudite preface on the history of Korean printing. McGovern traces the development of xylography in China up until the invention of movable type by the semi-mythical figure Pi Shêng, who supposedly cut single ideograms from clay, baked them in a kiln and arranged them within an iron frame for printing. From here the stage was set for further invention in Korea: 'Whether the Koreans learned of Pi Shêng's innovation or whether movable type was an invention of their own cannot be determined. Early Korean records show that movable type, probably of wood, was known as early as the first part of the thirteenth-century. Certainly the Koreans were the first people to use movable type cast in metal from moulds that allowed easy publication and could produce large amounts of durable characters of roughly standard dimensions: the first practical typographic method.'We also learn that the ink used was relatively light and a little foamy, unlike the tarry and somewhat bituminous ink used for printing European incunabula. With the introduction of movable type the paper used for printing was improved and strengthened by adding silkworm cocoons to the mulberry bark pulp used for papermaking. For a long time movable type remained a Korean preference, and although there was some exchange of printing technology between Japan and Korea, the Japanese preference for xylography lasted well into the nineteenth-century.The samples collected in this beautiful edition are of great significance to the history of printing as traditional techniques have been superseded in modern times. Finally, aside from the rare samples it contains, the book itself is an impressive work of fine printing and composition, being produced at the Voyagers' Press in Tokyo and entirely hand composed by master typographer Moriya Yoshiaki.

        ZEN AND ZEN CLASSICS.

      [Tokyo 1966-1982], Hokuseido. Vols. 2-4 cloth, 1 & 5 in wrs.. complete 5 vol. set, 123+211+340+225p., index, illustrated,. complete set of 5 vols., all clean dj. on vols. 2-4 in mylar. protector,mixed dates:[1982,1970,1976,1966,1979], vol.5 1st.. This illusive title has been out of print for a long time, only a couple of the volumes were reprinted, the complete work consisting of 5 volumes is rare and seldom found complete regardless of edition. * ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT WORKS IN ENGLISH ON ZEN: This is a comprehensive set of writings on Zen, Zen arts, the Zen masters and historical background. A wonderful set of works, with English, Japanese characters & Romanized texts. * A very well written, readable set of books. The celebrated Zen master D.T. Suzuki described Blyth as "one of the most eminent exponents of Japanese culture." **** OTHER RELATED WRITINGS BY BLYTH ON ZEN & HAIKU: ZEN AND HAIKU: Blyth's studies on Haiku, Japanese humor and Zen are "unique contributions towards East-West understanding." Blyth lived & worked in the east 40 years, until his death in 1964. The history of Zen is the history of moments. It cannot be, like the history of ideas, or even the history of the freedom of thought, an account of development, systematization, criticism, modification, replacement and so forth. Zen seems to become deeper sometimes, shallower, broader, narrower sometimes, but there is no progress of the ordinary kind. It is a history only in the sense of being a list of names of great men in the attainment of great and so forth. Zen seems to become deeper sometimes, shallower, broader, narrower sometimes, but there is no progress of the ordinary kind. It is a history only in the sense of being a list of names of great men in the attainment of great Buddha-hood. . Please check with us as we may have this in stock. Also please visit our website where you can download our latest catalog of Blyth books. You can also email us and request the list. We try to maintain a good number of his titles in stock at all times. * BLYTH'S CONTRIBUTION: Blyth lived and worked in the East for forty years, until his death in 1964 at the age of sixty-six. From the time of his internment in Japan during World War II, Blyth wrote assiduously. In the 1950's, his "ZEN IN ENGLISH LITERATURE" and "ORIENTAL CLASSICS" and "HAIKU" reached enthusiastic readers in America and Europe. Aldous Huxley describes Blyth's work as "illuminating." As William J. Higginson writes in his "HAIKU HANDBOOK," thanks to Blyth "a new interest in Japanese Haiku began to grow among poets of the immediate post World War II generation." ... Blyth's Contribution to cross-cultural understanding was manifold. In 1945, Blyth assumed a post as professor of English at Tokyo's Gakushuin University, the former Peers' School. For almost twenty years he tutored Crown Prince Akihito, the present Emperor. Blyth played a leading role in Emperor Hirohito's historical declaration of January 1, 1946, that he was a human being rather than a god. Blyth edited numerous writings from English and American literature, making them available to avid Japanese readers. **** FIRST EDITIONS: Following is a list of the First Editions: Vol. 1: 1960; vol. 2: 1964; vol. 3: 1970; vol. 4: 1966; vol. 5: 1962; vol. 7: 1962. [vol. 5, 7 are same contents] see additional notes below. There was no volume six ever published nor issued. * IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT WHAT A COMPLETE SET IS: COMPLETE IN 5 VOLUMES. Blyth originally planned this work to be an 8 volume set, but due to his untimely death, it only went to 5 volumes [per dust jacket notes found on volume 2]. The back of the dust jacket on volume one [First Edition] shows the list planning on a total of 8 volumes in all. . The whole set now actually consists of 5 volumes only and is complete in that state. It contains the below list of volumes, the list is based on our primary observation of each volume in addition to the publisher's notice of the series found on the dust jackets of several volumes. * The set is complete with volumes 1-5, there can be an acceptable variant in the last volume which can either be numbered volume 5 or 7, contents remains the same, it was merely the publisher's error. The value the a set with either volume 5 or 7 remains the same in our eyes, both issued in 1962 as the First Edition. * THE COMPLETE SET OF 5 VOLUMES: . Vol. I: GENERAL INTRODUCTION, FROM THE UPANISHADS TO HUINENG also WHAT I ZEN ? THE HISTORY OF ZEN, THE BELIEVING MIND, SONG OF TRHE WAY [THE CHENGTAOKE], THE PLATFORM SUTRA. * Vol. II: HISTORY OF ZEN, 713-867 also THE FIVE SECTS, GOZU ZEN AND ROAN ZEN, ENO AND HIS DISCIPLES, SEKITO'S DISCIPLES, SEPPO, SEPPO'S DISCIPLES, HOGEN & DISCIPLES, YAKUSAN TO SEKISO, SENSU, KASSAN, SHOZAN, TOZAN, SOZAN & UNGO, UMMON I, II, III THE SANDOKAI, HOKYOZAMMAI, POEMS OF HANSHAN I, II, ZEN MYSTICISM, EXISTENTIALISM, WAYS AND THE WAY, NATURE, HUMAN NATURE, THE BUDDHA NATURE THE POETIC NATURE, DEFECTS OF ZEN. * Vol. III: HISTORY OF ZEN 867-1260 also THE DISCIPLES OF TOZAN, NANGAKU AND BASHO, JOSHU, HYAKUJO RINZAI AND OBAKU THEIR DISCIPLES. * Vol. IV: MUMONKAN, HISTORY OF KOREAN ZEN, WUMENKUAN &c. * Vol. V: TWENTY-FIVE ZEN ESSAYS: WUMENKAUAN. . ! Note: vol. 5 and 7 are the same contents, simply a . numbering error on the part of the publisher. * Vol. VI: HISTORY OF JAPANESE ZEN, DOGEN HAKUIN, ETC. To our knowledge, this volume was never published. The contents were likely incorporated into other volumes with variant titles. * Vol. VII: ZEN ESSAYS, CHRISTIANITY, SEX, SOCIETY, ETC. . !! Note: vol. 5 and 7 have the same contents, simply a . numbering error on the part of the publisher. * NEVER ISSUED: Vol. VIII: BUDDHIST SERMONS ON CHRISTIAN TEXTS. The publisher never issued this title as part of this series, but issued it as a monograph in 1952, several years predating this series, then again in 1976 posthumously. Neither editions ever had any markings to indicate it to be a part of this series, we can only assume Blyth made a simple error when discussing this title as part of the current series. * ** = Please see note below: ** Hokuseido made an error in the numbering of this set. volumes 5 & 7 are identical. In fact, Blyth only published the first 5 of the planned set of 8 when he died in the fall of 1964, the last 3 volumes never published. To further complicate matters, in 1962 there was a 7th. volume set published but discontinued after Blyth's death, this was then reduced down to be numbered as volumes 1-5. The contents of old vol. 6 and 7 were combined to become new volume 5. This fact is clearly stated on verso of title page of new volume 5, "First published, as volume 7...1962 then reprinted as vol. 5, 1966." Suffice to say, when complete, the set is RARE in either of the 5 or 7 volume variants. The 8th volume was issued later as a monograph, and does NOT state volume 8. * The dust jacket on volume 1 clearly shows the plan to publish 8 volumes in the complete planned set of 8. The dust jacket of volume 5 of the 5 volume set clearly states a new and revised volume count to be now 5. Volume 5 in the new set contains: TWENTY-FIVE ZEN ESSAYS, [CHRISTIANITY], SEX SOCIETY &c. Introductions by D.T. Suzuki. * Please inquire with us for other titles by Reginald Horace Blyth, as we try to keep them in stock. This list is posted to our website, please visit and down load it or contact us for a current catalogue. *** SIZE & BINDING: The set is uniformly bound in brown cloth, with black lettering, 11.5 x 18.5 cm. Each volume was issued with a uniform dust jacket, each in a different color. Later editions were issued in stiff wrappers, some with dust jackets again in the same size. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: .

        Gorgona 9. 1966

      Vlastita naklada [Privately published], Zagreb 1966 - The illustration is signed, numbered (one of 200 copies) and dated by Dieter Roth. First edition. (4) p., and 1 plate with mounted illustration by Dieter Roth. The periodical has a screen printed cover and title page, inside a plate with a mounted smaller letterpress sheet with felt-tip pen drawing of a box by Dieter Roth. Each copy has a different drawing. Roth started to making concrete poetry in the mid-1950s, and termed these compositions "ideograms". These works of him evolved into "stupidograms" a grid of printed commas completed with a simple pencil or pen figure, mimicking word-seeking games. Gorgona was an "anti-magazine" published by the Zagreb based avant-garde art collective with the same name between 1961 and 1966. During this time 11 issues were published, each was completely designed by an artist related to the group: Josip Vani?ta (n. 1, 1961), Julije Knifer (n. 2, 1961), Marijan Jev?ovar (n. 3, 1961), Victor Vasarely (n. 4, 1961), Ivan Ko?ari?

        Trust [Proof Copy Signed by John Barth]

      New American Library, (NY) 1966 - The uncorrected proof copy of her first book, one of a handful of literary first novels published by NAL during the mid-60s, including John Gardner's The Resurrection and William Gass's Omensetter's Luck. Tall, comb-bound galley sheets. Laid in is a letter sent by editor David Segal to author John Barth, sending him "yet another first novel" and requesting "the pleasure of reading your opinion," as it appears Barth had made it clear that he would not be offering "a quotable quote." A noteworthy letter: Segal took over the newly founded hardcover publishing branch of New American Library, which previously had specialized in paperback publishing only -- notably the Signet and Mentor imprints, which reprinted classics and bestsellers. Segal immediately began publishing literary fiction by young, unknown writers, and in the course of a couple of years introduced William Gass, John Gardner, Michael Shaara, Alice Adams and Cynthia Ozick to the world, all of whom went on to become major American authors. It's a bit surprising that Barth would have been averse to providing a "quotable quote" for the likes of these, but apparently that was the case. This copy is signed by Barth on the first page and with his address stamp on the front cover. Ozick's name was left off the cover and has been added in ink. Mild sunning and curling to the covers; small tear at upper spine; about near fine. A very scarce proof of an important first book, and a copy with exceptionally interesting provenance.

        Dengler [Vietnam Exclusive: I Escaped from a Red Prison] (Original corrected manuscript)

      N.p.: N.p., 1966. Heavily corrected original typescript for a story by Dieter Dengler and ghost-writer Trevor Armbrister, "Dengler" (here with the hand-corrected title, "Vietnam Exclusive: I Escaped from a Red Prison"). The story first appeared in the December 3, 1966 issue of the "Saturday Evening Post," and was adapted many years later by noted German director Werner Herzog for his 1997 documentary film, "Little Dieter Needs to Fly," then remade by him in 2006 as a dramatic version titled "Rescue Dawn," starring Christian Bale as Dengler. Source material for Herzog's films, often highly improvised affairs, is rare. This manuscript is the earliest corrected form of the story that would be adapted into two of his finest efforts. 64 leaves on white stock with yellow revision pages inserted throughout, with profuse substantive holograph corrections in pencil, red pencil, black ink and red ink throughout. Title page integral with the first page of text, rubber-stamped No. 40304.
