        Christopher Columbus

      Kentfield, California: The Allen Press, 1972. One of 140 copies. With decorative letters printed in red at the beginning of each of the Acts taken from an Italian book of 1475. Printed in red, ochre and black and with grey lettering running across the head of every single page. The type faces used are Goudy Thirty and Solemnis on Wookey Hole handmade paper. Folio, unsewn as issued in yellow handmade paper wrappers with red lettering, housed in the original blue cloth covered box with a yellow printed label on the upper cover. Spine of box a little faded, otherwise extremely good. Nikos Kazantzakis was the greatest Greek writer of the 20th Century. He died in 1957 and Christopher Columbus was one of several plays published posthumously by his widow. This 1969 English translation works very well. The Allens suggest that the whole philosophy of Kazantzakis is revealed in a remark Columbus makes to Queen Isabella: 'Let him exist, my Queen, who preserves the dreams of night by day, and struggles to put them into action! This is what Youth means; this is the meaning of Faith. Only in this way can the world grow!'. Original prospectus inserted loose. Booklabel of Clarence B. Hanson.

        The Summer Game.

      New York: Viking Press, 1972. First edition. Octavo, original half cloth. Near fine in a near very good dust jacket that shows light wear. Inscribed by the author, "For ___ _____ yours in baseball! Roger Angell." The Summer Game, Roger Angell?'s first book on the sport, changed baseball writing forever. Thoughtful, funny, appreciative of the elegance of the game and the passions invested by players and fans, it goes beyond the usual sports reporter?'s beat to examine baseball?'s complex place in our American psyche. Between the miseries of the 1962 expansion Mets and a classic 1971 World Series between the Pirates and the Orioles, Angell finds baseball in the 1960s as a game in transition—marked by league expansion, uprooted franchises, the growing hegemony of television, the dominance of pitchers, uneasy relations between players and owners, and mounting competition from other sports for the fans?' dollars. Willie Mays, Roberto Clemente, Brooks Robinson, Bob Gibson, Sandy Koufax, Carl Yastrzemski, Tom Seaver, Jim Palmer, and Casey Stengel are seen here with fresh clarity and pleasure. Here is California baseball in full flower, the once-mighty Yankees in collapse, baseball in French (in Montreal), indoor baseball (at the Astrodome), and sweet spring baseball (in Florida)—as Angell observes, "Always, it seems, there is something more to be discovered about this game."

His @HistÛria, although less rigorously scientific and far less methodically ordered than that of his master Herculano, has value as history as well as literature" (p. 296). The work was left incomplete at Rebello da Silva's early death.Rebello da Silva was also responsible for beginning to collect the documents on Portugal's relations with the Vatican that comprise the massive @Corpo diplomatico portuguez (1862ñ1936), and he completed the Visconde de Santarem's @Quadro elementar das relaÁ?es polÌticas e diplom ticas de Portugal, which set out the Portuguese role in exploring the west coast of Africa. Rebello da Silva (1822-1871), who was born in Lisbon and died there, was also a novelist, journalist, a brilliant political orator, a professor of political economy and a dramatist. ---- InnocÍncio V, 228-32; XIII, 350-1.

        Some Memories of Drawings

      New York: Atlantis Editions. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. Fine. SIGNED LIMITED FIRST EDITION, ONE OF 20 PRESENTATION COPIES (out of a total edition of 120), signed by O'Keeffe and the book's designer Leonard Baskin. AN EXTRAORDINARY COPY: Given by O'Keeffe's long-time agent Doris Bry to her friend and noted psychiatrist Dr. Lucie Jessner. With letters from Bry to Jessner discussing O'Keeffe's health and the origins of this book, with proofs of the pre-publication text and proof photos for some of the plates in the book. In a typed signed letter in this collection dated December 1, 1972, Doris Bry writes to Lucie Jessner about the origins of this book, "Some Memories of Drawings": "You probably don't remember -- but when I did the big O'K Drawings portfolio (which you have) -- and which has ten drawings -- I also intended to do a second volume of another ten -- which I never did -- and probably will never be able to do. -- But I also wanted to do a little and inexpensive paperback of the 20 drawings available to anyone -- with perhaps a little something by O'K about them -- and a one page biography and bibliography in the back -- well designed and well printed, etc. -- about 8 x 6 or 6 x 5" -- something like that. "Now O'K has given me her comments -- text for the first ten -- she forgot about the second ten -- and I enclose a Xerox [included here]. -- If it isn't imposing on you, I'd be interested in your reaction -- if you have time to react. (This is text for the ten you have) "I feel one needs 20 to make a booklet that can be bound neatly -- and that ten doesn't work physically -- also it would be interesting if she would do another ten. "This was just given to me as a fait accompli -- we did not talk about it or work on it -- Some of the material under I (the first two pages of her text) -- she has said to me at times somewhat differently -- and perhaps better -- and I am tempted to try to get her to expand it a little -- but then I also think it might be best just to take it as it is. -- "as a reader would you be interested in this little book? or is it too sparse? or???" In 1973, Bry did succeed in getting the book produced and the result is a masterful collection of drawings O'Keeffe created between 1915 and 1963; illustrated with 21 charcoal and pencil drawings reproduced on Arches Silkscreen in 300-line screen offset lithography, each laid into a lettered folded leaf of Arches paper. Most drawings are accompanied by O'Keeffe's commentary -- her first writing intended for book publication -- explaining the details, setting, or inspiration for each work. Elegantly designed by Leonard Baskin and printed at The Meadows Press. 

Also noteworthy in Bry's letters is a discussion of O'Keeffe's health, specifically her battle with macular degeneration, which began to strip O'Keeffe of her central vision in 1972. In an autograph letter dated May 8, 1972, Bry writes: "Much is quite terrible -- beyond words -- and then O'K remarkable and just acts, insofar as possible -- as if she can see. -- But the problem that it doesn't seem to stay static, but all worsens weekly for her rather inexorably..." In her December 1, 1972 letter, she notes: "I was glad to see O'K -- which I hadn't since early May -- as she seemed very much better in many ways than then. -- Generally in better health, better spirits (quite cheerful actually) -- and I did not have that terrible sense I had last spring of desperation and fatigue and tension which really worried me so much. -- She says her eyes are no better, though I feel from things she sees and says unconsciously that she is seeing more, and so does everyone around her. -- but she says it is that she has adapted to it. -- And yet I hope things will change for the better somehow. -- Her courage and attitude are remarkable -- and somehow I think she will find some way of painting again some time -- though she says not. -- but she does now begin to think of writing, using the little tape recorder -- so I hope something will come of this, and certainly encouraged it." Note: The Xeroxed proofs of O'Keeffe's text differ from the final version. The nine 8x10 inch proof photographs are loose in an envelope addressed to "Miss Georgia O'Keeffe c/o Bry". With two additional postcards from Bry to Jessner, a catalog illustrated with O'Keeffe's works (which Bry mentions in a letter to Jessner) in celebration of O'Keeffe being awarded the 1971 M. Carey Thomas Award by Bryn Mawr College, and a brochure for an O'Keeffe exhibition at The Downtown Gallery (1958). Some Memories of Drawings. New York: Atlantis Editions, 1974. Octavo, contents loose as issued in original publisher's presentation issue box (which is more substantial and handsome than the regular issue). One plate (#21) with light foxing on image; Blue Lines (#1) with a few very light spots of foxing on matting edge. Letters, proofs, additional material fine. A MAGNIFICENT COLLECTION.

        THE TRUE GRIMOIRE Encyclopedia Goetia Volume I Deluxe ‘Goes’ edition quarter bound in vellum and marbled boards

      UK: Scarlet Imprint, MMX [2010].. First Edition, First Printing, Deluxe Issue.. Deluxe Vellum and Marbled Paper Boards.. As New. First Edition. The special Deluxe "Goes" Edition limited to just 54 hand-numbered copies, this being copy number 27, inscribed by the author on the limitation page ?"To Edwin with warm regards, Jake.?" Octavo, original publisher's marbled paper boards with vellum spine titled in gilt, all edges gilt. 246 pp, Index at rear. A fine copy, as new, without dust jacket, in a sturdy cloth slipcase, as issued. ¶ An essential reconstruction of The Grimoirium Verum, with extensive, practical notes and material on the living traditions of Quimbanda etc. The true grimoire is a major contribution to the practice and study of magic. The much-maligned Grimorium Verum has been restored to its rightful place as a coherent system of goetic magic. Jake Stratton-Kent has reconstructed a working version from the corrupted Italian and French versions of this important grimoire. The True Grimoire springs from the source of goetic magic, enabling us to unlock the secrets of the other grimoires. We are given insights into the Dragon Rouge, Key of Solomon, Lemegeton, Abramelin, Honorius, and the Black Pullet. This is a treasure trove for the student of magic. The True Grimoire lets us experience a grimoire tradition with links back to the Graeco-Egyptian magical papyri and the necromancy of the original Goes. It also places Verum within a living tradtion, one which has taken root in the New World, finding expression in Quimbanda and the legion of Exus, the 'people of the cemetery' who have clear Verum equivalents. This is a constistently illuminating text. The copious notes of a working magician, combined with a scholarly attention to detail, enable us to use this text for its original purpose. The hierarchy of Verum and goetic spirits is restored, the nature of Astaroth is definitively set down. The planetary hours are explained, as are all the ritual requirements and preparations. Jake Stratton-Kent has been a goetic magician since 1972, making forty years of continuous goetic practice. His practical work integrates the magical papyri, Italo-French grimoires in particular the Grimorium Verum and African Traditional Religions with a focus on Quimbanda and magia negra. His interest in magic spans the ancient, medieval, renaissance, and modern as well as stretching from the West to the Middle East and crucially, the New World. His scholarly approach is backed with a personal relationship with the spirits, which is rare to find in the modern world.

        Studies and restorations at Persepolis and other sites of Fars. 2 volumes., Reports and memoirs. Istituto Italiano per il Medio ed Estremo Oriente, Centro Studi e Scavi Archeologici in Asia 16.

      Rome : IsMEO, 1972 - XVII, 416 S.; XV, 107 S. Aus der Bibliothek von Prof. Dr. Wolfram Kleiss, langjährigem Leiter der Außenstelle Teheran des Deutschen Archäologischen Instituts. Ein gutes und sauberes Exemplar. - The volume, published in memory of Cyrus the Great, the founder of the Persian Empire, is the second in a series of publications which the Italian Institute of the Middle and Far East (IsMEO) intends to issue on the restoration of some of the historical monuments in Iran carried out by Italian experts under the direction of IsMEO and in close collaboration with the Ministry of Culture and Art of Iran and the Iranian Archaeological Department. Like the first volume, Travaux de restauration de monuments historiques en Iran, which was edited by G. Zander and published in 1968, the present one is of a preliminary character, but unlike the former, which also included an account of the restoration of a group of Safavid monuments in Isphahan, this one deals only with the other group of monuments under restoration, namely the Achaemenian monuments in the Province of Fars. Whereas the first preliminary report gave a brief account of the work carried out at Persepolis and of the studies undertaken during the first two years, 1964-1966, the present volume deals with the work and studies undertaken during the following six vears, 1966-1972.

        THE VERY PRECIOUS GIFT OF GOD [Interior Title] [Illuminated Manuscript Portfolio]

      [1972]. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. Folio. Beige cloth portfolio. Holding 21 leaves of holograph text accompanied by 12 illumi- nated plates. Contents loose, as issued. Mild handling wear. Near fine. Hirschman?'s own English trans- lation, transcription and re-il- lumination of the famous 15th Century alchemical treatise, ?"Pretiosissimum Donum Dei.?" Though of cloudy origin (doz- ens of manuscripts on alche- my bearing similar names are known to exist), the original work is generally attributed to Georges Aurach and is thought to have been published around 1475. Hirschman?'s source text here is a 1957 French translation from the original Latin by Eugene Canseliet, thought by many to be the true identity of Fulcanelli, a mysterious and well-known 20th centu- ry French alchemist. Hirschman illuminates his holograph with a series of 12 paintings, after or apparently inspired by the illustrations found in ?"Aureum Vellus Oder Guldin Schatz...?" (1708), and Joannes Daniel Myli- us?' 1628 work, ?"Anatomia Auri.?" Nevertheless, they are unmis- takably in Hirschman?'s distinc- tive style, in acrylic and poster paint on paper. Hirschman also translated the work of Abra- ham Abulafia into English, and along with Jerome Rothenberg and David Meltzer (both of whom he worked with closely) helped popularize Jewish mysticism in the 1970s via several important books and anthologies on Jewish poetic traditions. A unique art- ist?'s book and a compelling con- tribution to modern mysticism.

In addition a number of items are loosely inserted : a 3-D lenticular photograph of Freddie Young, labelled in ink to rear, with his three Oscars; 35mm photographic negatives of Young and his son on set shooting The Battle of Britain in 1970; two Orders of Service for Young’s memorial service in 1998 in which Samuelson gave the second reading, together with a printed copy of the heartfelt Tribute on 2 sheets of A4 paper; a signed menu for Young’s 90th birthday dinner which was hosted by Michael Samuelson Lighting at Pinewood Studios and at which Samuelson read the Tribute, inscribed to Samuelson and his wife Elaine and signed Freddie and Joan; Samuelson’s invitation to the Press Launch of the book in 1972; 4 sheets of A4 paper printed recto only, referring to the work of the Andor Kraszna-Krausz foundation and its connection to Focal Press; 8 A4 sheets printed recto only which are printouts of emails responding to news of Young’s death and include addresses and tributes from other luminaries of the movie world like digital artist and photographer Feliciano di Giorgio and director Kurt Rauf. Freddie Young is widely regarded as one of the greatest cameramen of all time and is best-known for his triple Oscar winning work on David Lean’s productions of Ryan’s Daughter, Doctor Zhivago and Lawrence of Arabia. Young was responsible for the iconic scene in Lawrence of Arabia in which Omar Sharif emerges through a mirage; this film inspired Steven Spielberg to take up film making as a career. Young was awarded an OBE in 1970 for his services to the film industry and was the first English director of photography to shoot in wide-screen cinemascope. Young was a close friend and colleague of Samuelson for many years and this association is borne out by this very personal archive. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 245 pages [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Autograph Manuscript of his review of Edith Wharton's autobiography (A Backward Glance), entitled "A Fiend for Destiny"

      [Northampton, Mass, 1972. 3-1/2 pp. 1 vols. 4to. With numerous deletions and corrections; small chip from top of first page, else very good; accompanied by a retained copy of the typescript (also with a few corrections), with his name and address typed at the upper right corner. 3-1/2 pp. 1 vols. 4to. Pritchett on Wharton: "...the accountant-historian of the smart set ..." A sharp, brilliant, and often funny sketch of Wharton and her set and her art, published in the New Statesman, 22 December 1972. Pritchett does not wonder that Wharton's autobiography was not accepted by English publishers in 1937 ("The dropped names lie like anonymous confetti on the pavement no longer clean..."); he acknowledges that the book however has some merit when her best three books are re-examined -- Ethan Frome, The House of Mirth, and The Age of Innocence ("...excellent works of knuckle-rapping second rank"), and he wonders how "a woman so well off and who hardly ever met people who were not, a woman so restlessly and exclusively mondaine, manage to become an artist?..." With some very funny passing remarks on Henry James as well.
