        An extensive printed archive of the noted wood sculptor

      Various publishers, various places 1973-2009., Soft cover, Book Condition: Near Fine. An archive of over 100 items, from the collection of the late Julian Andrews, a long-term supporter and enthusiast of the artist, Head of the Fine Arts Department of the British Council and the author of the primary reference source 'The Sculpture of David Nash'. The collection comprises over forty (primarily solo) exhibition catalogues from shows all round the UK, Europe, the US, Japan, Korea and Australia, and includes the catalogues for his first three solo shows, each written and designed by Nash; various studies and monographs; circa forty exhibition handbills and private viewing invitation cards; plus several books by Nash himself and various ephemeral bits and pieces. Seven of the items bear the artist's signature or inscription. A signed copy of Julian Andrews' exhaustive reference work is also included. A fascinating and wide-ranging archive which would now be virtually impossible to reproduce. A full catalogue of the archive is available upon request.

        Groot Abecedarium. (With an introduction by Prof. G. W. Ovink).

      Bemmel/ Nijmegen, Harry van Kuyk, 1973. Three cloth clamshell boxes in a wooden chest (all made by Van der Heijden Bindery, 71 x 54 x 10.5 cm), with an inlaid bronze plaque by Oscar Goedhart. The boxes contain 26 uninked relief prints and five serigraphs, all numbered and signed by the artist, plus a title page, six text pages ('Van voren af aan', a prelude to the Grand Abecedarium by Prof. G.W. Ovink) and a colophon page. Printed in 60 numbered copies.* Huge project of graphic artist Harry van Kuyk, that took three years of his life. This Abecedarium consists of the 26 letters of the alphabet, artistically translated into relief prints on very heavy paper, manufactured by the artist in his own studio on his embossing press called 'Aldus Manutius'. Printed without ink, in their play of light and shadow the compositions are being seen to best advantage. In the folder with the introduction by Ovink are five serigraphs, counterparts of five different letters. Paul van Capelleveen, curator of the National Library of the Netherlands, writes on his blog that artist and printer Harry van Kuyk (1929-2008) from the 1970s managed to draw - even international - attention for his unusual embossing compositions. To be able to manufacture them, he had a heavy press built that could get relief from several centimeters in a picture, both positive and negative: high and low, often combined in a single print. Van Kuyk's publications are at the cutting edge of the artist's book, private printing and graphic art. In libraries, his work is barely represented, but in museums all the more. More Harry van Kuyk in stock!.

        Descrittione di tutti i Paesi Bassi, altrimenti detti Germania Inferiore. Antwerpen: Plantijn, 1581.

      "Folio, geb. in half perkament, (20)+558+(18) p., ill. De band is modern, met gebruikmaking van oud, beschreven, perkament. Het werk telt 68 platen en prenten in plaats van de gebruikelijke 55. Op de Franse titel in oud handschrift: "Del conti Inpolito Mario Vossi de St. Secondo et suoi credi" (?). Lit: Voet 1277, Boele van Hensbroek VI; Tiele 422; Touwaide 1973, 35-60; Touwaide 1974, 5; Guicciardini Illustratos (2001) nr 5. R0462.".Eerste uitgave van het werk van Guicciardini door Plantijn. Na de drie (eigenlijk twee) uitgaven van Silvius uit 1567 (en de titeluitgave uit 1568) verscheen in 1580 een in Basel gedrukte editie in het Duits, maar veel belangrijker was de editie uit 1581 van Plantijn. Fontaine Verwey zegt over dit boek: "reeds bij de eerste oogopslag blijkt dat het een geheel ander boek geworden is. Plantin's typografie is uitgesproken superieur aan die van Silvius: de lay-out, het zetwerk, de illustraties, alles is even voortreffelijk en getuigt van vakbekwaamheid, zorgvuldigheid en goede smaak. Ook valt het op dat in de vijftien jaar sinds de eerste druk verscheen de typografische stijl veranderd was: de houtsnede werd vervangen door de kopergravure, de sobere versieringen en de "drukkersbloemen" door weelderige composities met mythologische, zinnebeeldige en emblematische figuren - kortom de Barok had de Renaissance verdrongen! Dank zij de ijver van de auteur is de inhoud belangrijk uitgebreid, al berust de mededeling op de titel dat de tekst met de helft vermeerderd is, op beminnelijke grootspraak. De illustratie echter is meer dan verdrievoudigd: in plaats van de zeventien in de eerste druk zijn er nu 55 kaarten, plattegronden en afbeeldingen, alle van uitstekende kwaliteit." In ons exemplaar is de soms ontbrekende titelprent (Belgia met haar attributen, gegraveerd door A. de Bruyn naar Crispijn van den Broeck) aanwezig. Na de titel zijn het wapen en het portret van Philips II ingeplakt, omdat Plantijn tot het laatste moment niet wist wie bij verschijning van het boek de landsheer zou zijn! Behalve de 55 gravures die in het boek behoren te zijn opgenomen - beschreven door Voet en Boele van Hensbroek - heeft ons exemplaar 13 extra plattegronden: Tienen, Doornik, St. Omer, Kamerijk, Landreci, Avesnes, Cimai, Mariebourg, Philippeville, Beaumont, Charlemont en Walcourt. Hierdoor zijn o.a. de vier blanco bladzijden in het boek waarop Plantijn meedeelde dat hij door oorlogsomstandigheden geen kaarten van Doornik en Kamerijk kon opnemen, gevuld. De in het boek behorende plattegrond van Maastricht en de kaart van Gelderland en Zutphen zijn over een andere kaart geplakt: kennelijk verbeteringen aangebracht door Plantijn tijdens het drukken. Van de boekdruktitel van deze editie bestaan twee varianten (vgl. Guicciardini Illustratos 5). Dit exemplaar heeft variant B.

        Cursed! (aka Always Hard!)

      Barbizon 1973 - LINDA MITCHELL (DEAN KOONTZ penname) - CURSED! (originally published under the title "ALWAYS HARD!" under the Gracie Amber penname by Cameo in 1970 - which I have verified as I own both books), published by Barbizon in 1973. This book is one of a number of 30 or so books that Dean Koontz wrote for Cameo books early in his career under various pennames (like Ann Griffin or Leonard Chris), and one book he actually published under his own name (Bounce Girl). Dean Koontz has since disavowed and otherwise denied having ever written such books (besides Bounce Girl which was published under his own name and the Leonard Chris book "Hung"), but the evidence is undisputable: The Library of Congress confirms that Gerda Ann Koontz (Dean's wife) holds the copyrights to this book. "Gracie" is one of the five names listed in the dedication of the gothic romance "Demon Child" (which Koontz wrote under the penname of Deanna Dwyer). All five of the first names listed in the dedication of "Demon Child" have turned out to be pseudonyms that Dean had used for this particular "Adult" literature. In an article written by Dean Koontz entitled "Dean's Drive" in the sci-fi fanzine Energumen #8 (6/71), Dean Koontz admitted to writing 30 of these books in 1970 (including "Share The Warm Flesh" - this book), along with Pig Society and The Underground Lifestyles Handbook (both of which were also published by the same publisher, Cameo books in 1970). One of the titles that Dean Koontz admits to having written ("Thirteen and Ready") was written under the penname of Ann Griffin. In an early sci-fi fanzine, Beabohema #8 (1970), Dean Koontz again talked about writing these books. The authors initials (A.G.) are simply Dean's wife's initials in reverse. One of the Ann Griffin cameo books "Protest Ball," lists the author's address as Harrisburg, Pennsylviania (where Dean and his wife were living in 1970). Finally, in Dean Koontz's writing how-to book "How to Write Popular Fiction" (1972), he refers to these books and specifically to the Ann Griffin penname. Book has vertical spine creasing, no spine lean, cover creases, removed price sticker color cover tear, no soiling or staining to covers, no former owner markings or used bookstore markings inside, no missing pages, some creased page corners (looks like poor handling/storage), some edge wear. Overall a VG book of this rare 1970s Dean Koontz pen name book. I have a number of other U.S. and U.K. Dean Koontz 1st printing hardcover/paperback/magazine appearances up for sale.

Middleton describes the creative process: "Start by spotting several blobs of water color paint, in different hues, on a piece of heavy tracing paper, located well within the whole area; then, subject the paper to quick horizontal movement in several directions. Repeat the process one or more times. The result will be a mass of crisscrossing irregular width lines and solid shapes". This process allowed Middleton to "discover recognizable material, usually in the form of birds, animals, fish, flowers and human profiles, appearing in plausible environments." Middleton was an American book designer, painter, and type designer. Born in Glasgow, Scotland he came to Chicago in 1908 where he studied at the School of the Art Institute. He joined the design department of the Ludlow Typograph Company in 1923 where he served as director from 1933-71. In 1944 he began operating a private press, The Cherryburn Press, producing many fine press editions. This copy of 'Cherryburn Prints' came from grandson of R. Hunter Middleton. This copy has two extra prints, the first is dated 1973 and bears the initials RHM, and the second extra print is a large format watercolor (10 1/2 x 8 inches) printed on the stationary of R. Hunter Middleton. Each extra print is added at the beginning of the prints in each portfolio. No ownership marks. The linen on the spine so the first portfolio case is slightly tanned, there is edge rear to the rear board of the first portfolio and to the inner cardboard ridge, the wrappers, printed text and color prints inside each portfolios are bright and clean, the red ribbon ties have been renewed for both portfolios; a tight copy in near fine condition.

        Fear and Loathing: On the Campaign Trail ?72.

      Arrow Books, San Francisco 1973 - First edition of the author's third book. Octavo, original black boards. Signed by Hunter Thompson, subject, George McGovern, Jimmy Carter and the illustrator, Ralph Steadman. Fine in a near fine first issue price-clipped dust jacket with the white boarder around the photograph of Thompson and McGovern on the back panel. A unique example with this collection of signatures. Forty years after its original publication, Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ’72 remains a cornerstone of American political journalism and one of the bestselling campaign books of all time. Hunter S. Thompson’s searing account of the battle for the 1972 presidency—from the Democratic primaries to the eventual showdown between George McGovern and Richard Nixon—is infused with the characteristic wit, intensity, and emotional engagement that made Thompson "the flamboyant apostle and avatar of gonzo journalism" (The New York Times). Hilarious, terrifying, insightful, and compulsively readable, Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ’72 is an epic political adventure that captures the feel of the American democratic process better than any other book ever written. "Thompson should be recognized for contributing some of the clearest, most bracing and fearless analysis of the possibilities and failures of American democracy in the past century" (Chicago Tribune).
