        Bildhuggarens Dotter [The Sculptor's Daughter]: a childhood memoir.

      1968 - Helsingfors; Gebers, Almqvist & Wiksell. 1968. 8vo. Original maize coloured cloth with lettering in black to spine, preserved in original pictorial dustwrapper; pp. [vi], 7-146 + [ii]; a fine and exceptional copy protected by a similarly fine dustwrapper, priced 23:50 to lower panel, with slight toning to spine; remarkably scarce in first printing. First Swedish edition; published previously in Helsinki, in Swedish. Also published in the same year in Finnish by Schildt. The following year an edition by Bonniers, in Stockholm, was issued, as was the first English translation, which was published by Ernest Benn. This critically acclaimed autobiography by the author and artist Tove Jansson is both a memoir and, as the writer Ali Smith puts it, "a book of superb stories". It describes her experiences growing up in a bourgeois, yet bohemian, environment at Skatudden in Helsinki and her summer life in the archipelago. Written throughout in beautifully evocative prose it offers "a glimpse of the mysteries of winter ice, the bonhomie of balalaika parties and the vastness of Christmas viewed from beneath a tree" (blurb from the English edition). Jansson's childhood experiences, lived in the shadow of the dominant figure of her sculptor father Viktor, had an inestimable impact on her later writing and art, and many the episodes described here are recognisable from her Moomin titles. This is the author's first book aimed at an adult audience. It has become one of the quintessential depictions of a Scandinavian childhood. Only 7 copies of the first printing listed on WorldCat including only 2 outside Scandinavia: Danish Nat. Lib; Univ. Library of Southern Denmark; Nat. Lib of Finland; Bordeaux3-Bu Lettres-Pressac; Malmo Stadsbibliotek; National Lib. Sweden and the British Library. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        ARCHIGRAM EIGHT [8]: Popular Pak Issue

      (London): (Archigram), (1968). First Edition. 8vo. Original stapled folding envelope holding nineteen sheets: fourteen 8" by 5.5" approx.; five 16" by 5.5" (folded in half, as issued). Envelope very good, with an inch-long tear at head of spine, some light creases and touches of soil. One staple separated. Sheets about near fine to fine: bright, crisp, and clean. Complete. Issue of this important, beautifully designed little magazine of radical architecture published on the occasion of the 1968 Milan Triennale. The young Archigram group operated from a utopian futurist, Buckminster Fuller-inspired view, with technology at the forefront. As Mike Webb put it, Archigram originated "because we felt at the time that very exciting things were happening [in architecture], as indeed they were," particularly in the US -- but London still lacked an avant garde, and felt "empty and lifeless" [CLIP STAMP FOLD, p. 27]. ARCHIGRAM EIGHT is a series of loose sheets dealing with "the problem of direct personal provision: of comfort, facility, satisfaction, enquiry..." Each sheet is marked within several categories including metamorphosis, nomad, indeterminacy, hard(ware)/soft(ware), emancipation, exchange/response, and comfort. An important record of avant-garde architecture (and radical '60s optimism), with gorgeous graphic design.

        Historische print- en dicht-tafereelen, van Jan Baptist Girard, en juffrou Maria Catharina Cadiere. [The Netherlands?], 1735. Small 4to (24 x 18.5 cm). With 32 "scenes", each consisting of an engraved plate with a letterpress poem on the facing page. Gold-tooled red half goatskin morocco (2nd half of the 19th century), richly gold-tooled spine.

      Gay & Lemmonyer II, col. 603 ("tres rares") & col. 551 (French ed.: "extrêmement rares"); Kearney, The private case 901-902 (2 incomplete copies); STCN (3 copies); WorldCat (3 copies, incl. 2 the same); for background information: R.H. Robbins, Encyclopedia of witchcraft and demonology (1968), pp. 69-74. Attractive copy of a very rare erotic print series concerning the notorious case of the Jesuit Jean-Baptiste Girard and Catherine Cadière, which inspired the 1748 French novel Thérèse philosophe: an icon of 18th-century libertinism. The series was issued (simultaneously?) in French with letterpress title: Histoire du pere Jean Baptiste Girard ... et de la damoiselle Marie Caterine Cadière, but without the accompanying anti-Catholic verses and prose introduction of the present edition in Dutch. The occasionally very graphic prints show some of the accusations such as flagellation and kissing the "stigma" (ulcer) below her left breast. Most scenes include one or more demons or angels.At age 18 the beautiful young Catherine Cadière joined a group of devotees of the Third Order of St. Theresa, who lived in their own homes, but were dedicated to prayer and meditations. Their spiritual director was the highly respected Jesuit father Jean-Baptiste Girard (1680-1733). Catherine told him that she had saintly visions in which God recommended Girard to guide her. After a year of spiritual guidance he decided her signs of holiness were questionable. Catherine was disappointed by Girard's rejection and retreated to a convent, where she started acting possessed. Exorcism was attempted and she accused father Girard of bewitchment and sexual abuse. The case was then taken to court and soon attracted a lot of attention, which resulted in dozens of publications. The notoriety of course came from the scandal of a priest sexually abusing a young girl, who herself used crude deceptions to pass herself off as a saint. The case marked the end of formal trials for witchcraft in France.Five of the plates in the present copy have some very minor additions in ink. With some occasional minor thumbing, four tiny wormholes in the last four leaves, and some offsetting of the plates onto the facing pages of letterpress text, otherwise in very good condition with crisp impressions of the plates. The binding with some minor restorations, otherwise also very good.

        Early twentieth-century sketchbook of historic ornament, primarily from the Victoria & Albert Museum

      Various places, 1968. Beautifully executed sketchbook of historic ornament based primarily on artifacts in the Victoria & Albert Museum, containing thirty pages of pencil, ink, and watercolor sketches by English art student Leonard Timson (1879-1936). The range of ornamental details is wide, covering sculpture, ceramic, and stained glass designs, from a sixth-century Coptic frieze, to thirteenth-century Italian mosaics in porphyry and marble heightened with gold, to colorful seventeenth-century Spanish tiles. Most of the designs are marked "S.K.M." for the South Kensington Museum, formally renamed the Victoria & Albert in 1899: most notably, a fully-finished pen and watercolor painting of the stained glass window "The Adoration of the Magi," which came to South Kensington from the Cathedral of Cortona in Tuscany. Outside the galleries, Timson records local architectural and sculptural details from Cobham Church in Kent, Fairford Church in Gloucestershire (famous for its stained glass), St. Mary's in Buckinghamshire, and even, farther afield, the entrance gates to the Antwerp Zoo. Timson's style of sketching and his annotations are indebted to the work of Richard Glazier, a member of the South Kensington Circle (along with Owen Jones and Henry Cole), and head of the Manchester Municipal School of Art. Glazier's 1899 Historic Ornament was the most widely assigned art textbook in England in the early twentieth century, and Timson was clearly immersed in it. His sketchbook imitates Historic Ornament in lettering, layout, shorthand (including "S.K.M."), and choice of subjects. In the National Art Competition of 1904, while a student at Battersea Polytechnic Institute, Timson won a bronze medal "for his well-executed design for a panel in the Italian Renaissance style," perhaps inspired by the subjects in this sketchbook; his stained-glass work would later appear in an exhibition at the Royal Academy, and he would pursue a career as a draughtsman. Toward the end of the sketchbook, Leonard's daughter Enid Timson (1906-1994), an avocational painter, contributes thirteen pages of her own, including six full-page watercolors. While her work is less accomplished than her father's, her watercolors of the Ponte Vecchio and other Florentine scenes have their own charm. A remarkable ornamental sketchbook, testifying to the influence of the South Kensington Circle in early twentieth-century English art education. Oblong folio measuring 7.5 x 10.5 inches, original half diapered black calf over pebbled green cloth boards, spine ruled in gilt, black calf cylindrical pencil-holder attached to lower board, original elastic band (mended) attached to upper board, all edges speckled red. Front pastedown bears a calligraphic ink ownership inscription ("Leon: B. Timson / July 1903"), the bookplate of "RcF" in Morningthorpe, and a Reeves & Sons stationer's ticket ("Made of Whatman's Paper") beside their Ludgate Hill showroom stamp. Forty-five illustrated pages of pencil sketches, pen-and-ink drawings, and watercolors, including one pen-and-ink sketch of stained glass windows on older paper tipped to the final pastedown. One of Enid Timson's watercolors cleanly excised at rear. Corners bumped, pencil holder and spine ends heavily rubbed.

        Zap Comix Number 1

      San Francisco: Apex Novelties, 1968. 1st edition, 1st printing (25 cents, etc.). Names (in blue ink) to 2 blank margins of the back cover, else fine (no other flaws), and despite CGC's considerable deduction in grade for the names, this comix was slabbed and graded by them, as very fine "VF-7.5" suggesting that the real grade, beyond the back cover names, would be conspicuously high. The last similar auction sale was for a "FN-VF 7.0" ($2,210 in Aug. 2016). Zap 1, hailed as the first underground comix, the book that lit the fuse for a thousand of its descendants. And though there were a dozen or so forerunners, each produced randomly with no connection to one another, that are now seen as, and collected under the heading of, underground comix, Zap 1 inaugurated the genre. Graded and slabbed by Certified Guaranty Company (CGC), the preferred, the fussiest, and the most prestigious comic grading service, and all other such services, with pretensions to authority, should be viewed as dubious, and this is a drag to say, but ungraded comics are more dangerous than an IRA built exclusively with Beanie Babies, as unslabbed comics can't be resold, and your view of condition means nothing to a future buyer, and CGC may flippantly downgrade one for a blemish you didn't notice, or pardoned as a trifle. Fine [7.5].
