        Zone

      Dublin / London: The Dolmen Press / Calder & Boyars, 1972. Folio. Original black morocco-backed cloth boards, title stamped in blind on front cover, gilt-lettered on spine; publisher's slipcase with title embossed in blind (light wear to slipcase). LIMITED EDITION, number 211 of 250 numbered copies SIGNED BY BECKETT. "'Zone,' the central poem in Apollinaire's career, prefaces his collection Alcools ... The poet was thirty-three years old, the age of Dante embarking on his tour of the afterlife. The poem doesn't so much praise its objects of futurist desire--the Eiffel Tower, airplanes, a railway terminal--as treat them like pastoral motifs. The heart of the poem is not in the future at all but in a past recollected in anxiety and sadness" (David Lehman).

        Rare Original Photograph SIGNED and DEDICATED by FIDEL CASTRO

      Berlin 1972 - Berlin: 13 June 1972. One large print press photograph of Fidel Castro with Erich Honecker, with Castro's original signature and manuscript dedication to front, taken by renowned German photojournalist Joachim Spremberg, and in turn dedicated to him by Castro, in Spanish, "Para Achim Spremberg, fraternalmente, Fidel Castro." [To Joachim Spremberg, fraternally, Fidel Castro]. Photograph measures approximately 21,5 x 19,5 cm, accompanied by a green mount, suitable and ready for framing. Official press stamp caption to verso. Excellent condition, a rare vintage colour photograph. This striking vintage photographs captures prominent Communist leader Fidel Castro gaining an important political alliance during his first tour to East Germany in 1972, as he was welcomed upon his arrival at the Berlin-Schönefeld airport by Erich Honecker, General Secretary of Germany's Socialist Unity Party. Signed, dated, and dedicated in the original by Fidel Castro on 13 June 1972, this image was taken at the onset of foundational negotiations for friendship and cooperation between German's Free Democratic Party (GDR) and the Cuban Republic. Fidel Castro's first visit to Berlin began on June 13, 1972 and at various points addressed the border guards that policed the Berlin Wall to prevent East Germans from escaping to the West. At Brandenburg gate on June 14 in the afternoon he addressed the men charged with shooting East Germans fleeing to West Germany as "the courageous and self-denying border guards of the Free Democratic Party (GDR) People's Army who stand guard in the front line of the entire-socialist community." Later in the evening Premier Castro addressed the Nikolay Bezarin Barracks in East Berlin. He also made a formal address to German civilians, walking through the crowds to greet them in person. He spent most of his visit accompanied by Erich Honecker, leader of the German Democratic Republic, who is seen in this photograph. In 1974, at Havana, Erich Honecker and Fidel Castro would sign an "agreement on cooperation between the German SED and the Cuban Communist Party for the years 1974-1975". Hans-Joachim Spremberg (1943-1978) is the author of this photograph and supporter of Fidel Castro who dedicated and signed the press print for his personal keeping. Commonly known as simply Joachim Spremberg, he was a German photojournalist in East Germany, born in Berlin. He documented life in East Berlin, as well as the construction of the Berlin TV tower. He was selected as official photographer for several high state occasions with Free Democratic Party (GDR) Party, and also with communist politician Walter Ulbricht. He died in a helicopter crash at Wadi Suf al-Jin in Libya.

        Verhandelinge van de opvoedinge en ziekten der kinderen. Vertoonende op wat wyse de kinderen gezond konden blyven, en ziek zynde, bequamelyk konnen herstelt werden. Zeer nodig voor alle huyshoudende lieden.Amsterdam, Hieronymus Sweerts, 1684. 8vo. With engraved frontispiece showing parents nursing their baby children with a physician and an apothecary at work, and 18 numbered illustrations on 5 full-page engraved plates, and one full-page plate voor the first additional text. Contemporary vellum, spine lettered in ink.

      - Bibl. Med. Neerl. I, p. 279; Krivatsky 1338; Waller 1120; Parkinson, Med. books Manchester 307; G.A. LIndeboom, Geschiedenis van de medische wetensch. in Nederland (1972), Chapt. 4: Bloei (1625-1700). Rare first and only edition of one of the first medical books on child diseases intended for parents: to teach them about the good care and education of children, offering advices and instructions on all sorts of children's illnesses, their prevention and possible cures. Many home recipes are fully described for the parents themselves to prepare and administer to the children. At the end a number of special cases are discussed, like falling sickness and malformed children.After the main text, divided into three parts, follow two other texts: (1) 'Verscheide aanmerkingen aangaande de kinder-ziekten' (Various notes of child diseases), pp. 267-322, including a description of a child whose body was totally covered with scales except for the head, illustrated with a full-page plate (p. 303); the second text, translated from the English, is called 'Historie der Japanse campher' (History of Japanese camphor), pp. 323-332. Blankaart tells that the famous Doctor Wilhelmus ten Rhyne, physician, herb expert and chemist to the Japanese Emperor had sent in the year 1674 a branch of the Japanese camphor tree to the Netherlands. The characteristics and use of the Japanese camphor tree are discussed, but at the end it is concluded that the Sumatra camphor tree is the best.The physician and botanist Willem ten Rhyne (1647-1700) played an important role as an intermediary of European and East-Asian and Japanese medicine. Before he went to Japan he was employed by the Dutch East India Company. He wrote the first European account on acupuncture, De Acupunctura, and the first detailed study of tea, recommending - as a follower of Franciscus Sylvius - copious quantities of tea. Steven Blankaart (1650-1704), physician at Amsterdam, may be regarded as one of the most important Dutch physicians of the 17th century. He was a prolific writer of popular medical treatises, books on anatomy, surgery, etc, including a herbal and a large work on insects. He was the first to introduce Cartenianism into medical science and was one the first physicians to be a scientist and empiricist in the modern sense of the word. Worked on the same field as Jan Swammerdam, Blankaart proved the existence of a capillary system, as had been suggested by Leonardo da Vinci, by spouting up bloodvessels, though he failed to realize the true significance of his findings. He is known for his development of injection techniques for this study and for writing this present first Dutch book on child medicine. Blankaart was like a spider in a web of physicians, ministers and surgeons from all over Europe and the East Indies, China and Japan to provide him with fascinating entries for his journal Collectanea Medico-Physica, including articles by Willem ten Rhyne on moxa-burning (against the gout) and acupuncture. He also corresponded with the mystical writer Antoinette Bourignon and argued in one letter that an earthly paradise would be created if there were a prohibition of alcohol. As an entomologist he also collaborated with Maria Sibylla Merian on the publication of her work.Good copy of a rare early book on pediatrics.- (Bookplate of Façee Schaeffer at the back).

Here is a riddle for you. Do you know what two letters spell an Indian tent? the answer is T.P. (tepee). And what about this? What four letters frighten a burglar? The answer? O.I.C.U.

        Henri Chopin in performance

      Sunderland 1972 - 147 x 103 mm. Black and white silver gelatin print. A composite photograph showing Chopin performing sound poetry and reading to an audience at his retrospective exhibition at Ceolfrith Art Centre in 1974. Hand-inscribed on verso by Christopher Carrell (Editor of Ceolfrith Press): ‘Henri Chopin in performance, during his retrospective exhibition at Ceolfrith Art Centre’. Ceolfrith 18 was dedicated to Chopin and published to coincide with the exhibition. During the 1970s, Peter Latham was the principal photographer for Sunderland Arts Centre, of which Ceolfrith Press was a component. In the late 1970s, his archive of negatives was lost. Fortunately, a small collection of prints and contact sheets was saved. Therefore this original gelatin print that records Chopin’s performance is extremely rare. We are unaware of any other example so it may well be unique. Condition: some discolouration to edges and handling, some wear to edges.

        Verhandelinge van de opvoedinge en ziekten der kinderen. Vertoonende op wat wyse de kinderen gezond konden blyven, en ziek zynde, bequamelyk konnen herstelt werden. Zeer nodig voor alle huyshoudende lieden.Amsterdam, Hieronymus Sweerts, 1684. 8vo. With engraved frontispiece showing parents nursing their baby children with a physician and an apothecary at work, and 18 numbered illustrations on 5 full-page engraved plates, and one full-page plate voor the first additional text. Contemporary vellum, spine lettered in ink.

      Bibl. Med. Neerl. I, p. 279; Krivatsky 1338; Waller 1120; Parkinson, Med. books Manchester 307; G.A. LIndeboom, Geschiedenis van de medische wetensch. in Nederland (1972), Chapt. 4: Bloei (1625-1700). Rare first and only edition of one of the first medical books on child diseases intended for parents: to teach them about the good care and education of children, offering advices and instructions on all sorts of children's illnesses, their prevention and possible cures. Many home recipes are fully described for the parents themselves to prepare and administer to the children. At the end a number of special cases are discussed, like falling sickness and malformed children.After the main text, divided into three parts, follow two other texts: (1) 'Verscheide aanmerkingen aangaande de kinder-ziekten' (Various notes of child diseases), pp. 267-322, including a description of a child whose body was totally covered with scales except for the head, illustrated with a full-page plate (p. 303); the second text, translated from the English, is called 'Historie der Japanse campher' (History of Japanese camphor), pp. 323-332. Blankaart tells that the famous Doctor Wilhelmus ten Rhyne, physician, herb expert and chemist to the Japanese Emperor had sent in the year 1674 a branch of the Japanese camphor tree to the Netherlands. The characteristics and use of the Japanese camphor tree are discussed, but at the end it is concluded that the Sumatra camphor tree is the best.The physician and botanist Willem ten Rhyne (1647-1700) played an important role as an intermediary of European and East-Asian and Japanese medicine. Before he went to Japan he was employed by the Dutch East India Company. He wrote the first European account on acupuncture, De Acupunctura, and the first detailed study of tea, recommending - as a follower of Franciscus Sylvius - copious quantities of tea. Steven Blankaart (1650-1704), physician at Amsterdam, may be regarded as one of the most important Dutch physicians of the 17th century. He was a prolific writer of popular medical treatises, books on anatomy, surgery, etc, including a herbal and a large work on insects. He was the first to introduce Cartenianism into medical science and was one the first physicians to be a scientist and empiricist in the modern sense of the word. Worked on the same field as Jan Swammerdam, Blankaart proved the existence of a capillary system, as had been suggested by Leonardo da Vinci, by spouting up bloodvessels, though he failed to realize the true significance of his findings. He is known for his development of injection techniques for this study and for writing this present first Dutch book on child medicine. Blankaart was like a spider in a web of physicians, ministers and surgeons from all over Europe and the East Indies, China and Japan to provide him with fascinating entries for his journal Collectanea Medico-Physica, including articles by Willem ten Rhyne on moxa-burning (against the gout) and acupuncture. He also corresponded with the mystical writer Antoinette Bourignon and argued in one letter that an earthly paradise would be created if there were a prohibition of alcohol. As an entomologist he also collaborated with Maria Sibylla Merian on the publication of her work.Good copy of a rare early book on pediatrics.- (Bookplate of Façee Schaeffer at the back).
