        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

      New York: Maecenas Press - Random House,, 1969. Folio. Publisher's solander box of brown straight-grain morocco by Cartonnages Adine (Paris), leather-and-horn ties, gilt lettered spine, black silk portfolios for letterpress and illustrations, lettered in gilt on front covers. With all the original packaging material, including the shipping box. 12 colour heliogravures and a four-colour etched frontispiece on Rives paper; together with a second suite of 12 plates on Japon Nacre paper. Title page, divisional titles and initial letters printed in bisque. An excellent copy. First and limited Dalí edition, number XII of 200 copies, signed by Dali at the foot of the frontispiece and on the title page. "The artist Salvador Dalí, famous for his surreal images of melting clocks and barren landscapes, at first glance might not seem to have much in common with a retiring Victorian English don who wrote children's books. But actually, Dalí and Carroll had much in common: both men were ardent explorers of dreams and the imagination, attempting in their art to show the fertile pathways to the unconscious. This artistic temperament might explain why, in his sixties, Dalí created twelve surreal illustrations - one for each chapter - for Alice in Wonderland. Because he required a rich, lush palette for his painted drawings, Dalí turned to the oldest process for reproducing photographic images for printing: heliogravure. Similar to engraving, the method is time consuming and costly. Each heliogravure is printed by hand and considered an original" (Catherine Nichols, Alice's Wonderland: a Visual Journey through Lewis Carroll's Mad, Mad World, 2014, p. 28). One of the most extraordinary and beautiful editions of Alice.

        Biological Journal of the Linnean Society.

      8vo. 103 volumes in more than 400 parts, plus indices for all volumes except 1-3, 17, 72, 73; original publisher's paper wrappers; Volume 10, Number 4 signed by the editor R.J. Berry; very slight browning to some of the earlier volumes, otherwise fine. A complete run of this august and important publication from the library of its former editor R.J. Berry. Berry, Emeritus Professor of Genetics at University College London, has had a long and distinguished career as an academic. He has written some of the most sought after volumes in the New Naturalist series, including The Natural History of Orkney and The Natural History of Shetland, as well as numerous academic papers and books. As a practising Christian he is also interested in the ramifications of Darwinism upon religious belief, and has written a number of works in support of the idea of evolutionary creationism, including God's Book of Works: The Nature and Theology of Nature, the text of his 1997-8 Glasgow Gifford Lectures. The Journal is the oldest biological journal in the world, having evolved out of the Linnean Society's Transactions in 1791. It was the only dedicated biological journal for many years and was the first organ to publish Darwin and Wallace's theories of natural selection in 1858. It was relaunched in a new format in 1969 and it is a complete run of the modern form of the Journal that is presented here. R.J. Berry's profound interest in genetics and evolution led him to fix decisively the direction of the Biological Journal. Berry made clear the distinctions between the Biological Journal and the Linnean Society's parallel Botanical and Zoological journals in a flier issued upon his becoming editor: "the Zoological and Botanical Journals have a proper and continuing morphological and taxonomic basis; it is our understanding and intention that the Biological journal should have a special emphasis on organic evolution in the broadest sense - from observation and theory to experiment and inference, including history and conservation. This will be firm editorial policy in the future". He assumed the editorship in September 1978 (Volume 10, Number 3) and carried on until April 1990 (Volume 39, Number 4), during which time the journal adopted the subtitle and focus that it has maintained to this day as 'A Journal of Evolution' (starting with Volume 33, Number 1). He has continued as an associate editor since stepping down. The breadth and depth of the learning displayed in these volumes is too great to be discussed in detail here; each issue contains valuable articles, arguments and controversies. It is worth highlighting a couple of issues, though, which bring the focus of the Journal on to Charles Darwin, the father of the evolutionary movement. Volume 17, Number 1 (February 1982) is devoted to commemorating the centenary of Darwin's death and shows the stamp of Berry's Christian perspective by including an article by the Bishop of Salisbury on the impact of evolutionary science on our understanding of Man's place in nature. Other pieces include a biographical article by R.B. Freeman, Darwin's bibliographer, J.R. Moore on the controversy surrounding Darwin's interment in Westminster Abbey and a prefatory paper by Berry himself. Volume 21, Numbers 1 & 2 (January/February 1984, published in one part) are devoted to the Galapagos Islands. Frank J. Sulloway contributes a piece on Darwin and the Galapagos, while the other articles show how modern naturalists have built on Darwin's work in the region. This is just a small glimpse into the range of expertise and approach displayed in this set of volumes. It represents the most intellectually rigorous and exhaustive body of work in evolutionary science over the last forty years and stands as a tribute to the vision of the editor from whose collection it has come.

Its headquarters are in Weinheim, Baden-Württemberg, and it has production facilities and markets in Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and the United States. The parent company was founded in 1849 as a producer of leather goods. The company was founded in 1849 by Carl Johann Freudenberg, the son of a wine merchant,[2] and his partner, Heinrich Christoph Heintze; the two took over a tannery at Weinheim. For the next 80 years, the company produced leather products exclusively. Hurt by the worldwide economic depression that began in 1929, and by shortages during World War II, it diversified into seals for motors made first of leather and later of artificial rubber (the Simmerring, named for an engineer called Walther Simmer), which led to fabrics and to cleaning fabrics and tools when it was noted that the company's cleaning ladies were using discarded scraps of the experimental fabrics. Vileda (from German: wie Leder, "like leather") window-cleaning cloths were first marketed in 1948. In the mid-1990s the company reorganized with a "highly decentralized organizational structure": it has 16 divisions or areas of business incorporating 430 independent units. Three-quarters of its business is as a supplier to other companies. In 2004 Freudenberg had employees in 43 countries. Recently it has focused attention on markets in China and Japan; for example, it provided the floor coverings for the Shanghai Metro stations. In 2002 the company closed its last leather tannery, marking the effective end of the leather industry in Germany. However, today Vileda is a market leader in Europe. All German cars contain parts made by another Freudenberg subsidiary, and German-made outdoor clothing contains fibers made by yet another.[4] Almost all major airports have flooring made by another Freudenberg subsidiary. In 2015 the group was a 7,5 billion euro business with more than 40,000 employees, approximately 11,000 in Germany. Revenues rose from 7 billion euros in 2014 to 7.572 billion in 2015.

Where is your Vortex? London: The Egoist Ltd, 1919. PROVENANCE: The estate of R.B. Kitaj, via Peter Howard, Serendipity Books, with all bearing his price coding ("LEM") and most additionally annotated "In Our Time." Inspired by Walter Benjamin's classic 1931 essay "Unpacking My Library," acclaimed British artist Kitaj set out in 1969 (Benjamin's essay had been published in English for the first time just the year before) to photograph a selection of book covers from his library for a portfolio of color screen-prints entitled IN OUR TIME: Covers For A Small Library After the Life for the Most Part. The completed portfolio contained 50 covers and was issued in 1969 in a signed edition of 150 copies by Marlborough AG Schellenberg. Here offered are 12 of the actual books from Kitaj's library used in creating this work. The books offer a fascinating opportunity to investigate questions of representation and materiality, and embody something of the physical life they have endured over the 40+ years since they were last documented. Furthermore, at least several provide a glimpse at Kitaj's working methods for this series. One title (PLAGUE) shows evidence of having been touched up in the print. In another (MENSCHEN DER ZEIT), the artist completely altered the cover photograph, substituting an image of German actor Paul Wegener later in the same book for the original cover image. The page with Wegener has also been flagged with a scrap bookmark and a penned line appears on that page. Books were an enormous influence on Kitaj's art. His library in many ways was his studio ("For me, books are what trees are for the landscape painter") and in IN OUR TIME "Kitaj transcends the idea of the physicality of the book. By enlarging the covers he gives the chosen volumes a monumental presence, reinforcing the subjects within the covers with a new and powerful resonance" (Ramkalawon, KITAJ PRINTS: A Catalogue Raisonné). As The Independent (London) said in their 2007 obituary: "[Kitaj's] love of books connects inextricably with his sense of the importance of the transmission of knowledge and thought, through time, and with his awareness of the fragility of such transmission in any era of pers [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Vladimir Nabokov: oil painting by Gerard de Rose for Time magazine's cover of the novelist on May 23, 1969.

      Montreux, Switzerland: by the artist, Feb. 1969. Painting from Life. Framed. Fine. Gerard de Rose. Painting by Gerard de Rose (1918-87) for the Time magazine cover depicting novelist "Vladimir Nabokov," dated May 23, 1969. The famous cover of the novelist at his peak bears a banner in the upper right reading: "THE NOVEL IS ALIVE / and Living in Antiterra." This is a rare, fine, and large study Signed by the artist Gerard de Rose of Vladimir Nabokov, the world-renowned Russian-American author and lepidopterist. De Rose painted this highly finished study from the life in Montreux, Switzerland. Gerard de Rose [with an accent on the final "e"] was the son of an emigree Russian professor of music and surgeon. The talented artist studied briefly at the Royal College of Art (1939) but from Dunkirk on wore the uniform of the Royal Engineers. After the war, de Rose returned to the Royal College of Art and became a lecturer. From 1958-67, he served as the head of the art faculty at Maidstone College of Art. In 1961, Gerard de Rose was elected to the Royal Society of British Artists (RBA). Working mainly as a portraitist, he exhibited in numerous shows in Britain such as at the Royal Academy, Manchester and Alwin galleries, as well as at shows throughout the United States. (adapting Wiki.)Compared to the final Time cover that appeared a month later, this penultimate painting lacks the artist's inclusion of a few items associated with Nabokov. Those collage elements of cover art included two butterflies (one, a small "blue" Lycaena argiolus on Nabokov's shoulder: a species he made famous as a lepidoperist; the other a brown wood nymph above his head). The Time cover also depicted three Scrabble pieces labeled in Cyrillic Russian script to suggest Nabokov's love of words and gamesmanship. The cover also included a small tromp l'oeil sketch of Nabokov's mother "pinned to the wall" originally sketched by Léon Bakst in 1910; and two onion-domed cupulas of St. Basil's Cathedral in Moscow in the lower left. The Time issue includes under "Books," a clever piece entitled "I Have Never Seen a More Lucid, More Lonely, Better Balanced Mad Mind Than Mine: Nabokov" by staffers who interviewed Nabokov at his apartment in Montreux. Another article about the novelist in the magazine was "Prospero's Progress," by Harry Levin, a Harvard professor of English who did much to advance Vladimir's career (dated Friday, May 23, 1969). A copy of the original Time magazine will be furnished to the purchaser of the painting.

It was revised in 1915 and published in as Pastiches et Melanges. Paris, Gallimard 1919. Ruskin's work was so important to Proust that he claimed to know "by heart" several of Ruskin's books The Artist , Pierre Lesieur, French (1922 - 2011). Popular in Europe, Lesieur has been the subject of elevenmonographs i n Fr an ce & Swi t z erland. See his website: Journées de Lecture is described in the Koopman Collection Koninklijke Bibliotheek, the Hague, Netherlands: “The delicately detailed etchings that illustrate Journées de lecture were produced by Pierre Lesieur.....Having spent three days at the École des Beaux-Arts and a short period at the academy of cubist painter André Lhote and that of fauvist Othon Friesz, he turned his back on art education. Lesieur developed into a subtle artist on his own, finding inspiration in travel but also in everyday events. In Journées de lecture, books, bookcases, people reading and various details are pictured: an open window, crockery on a coffee table, the chest of drawers in the bedroom with the clock under a glass dome, 'chatting confidentially with seashells from far away and an old, sentimental flower'
