        The Sonnets of William Shakespeare.

      Zeitlin & Ver Brugge Booksellers, April 1974., Los Angeles: - Sm. 8vo. 154 pp. 2 illustrations by Mary Kuper. Original binding by Max J. Adjarian in quarter Levant morocco, decorative paper (designed by the printer), raised bands, gilt spine. Fine copy. LIMITED EDITIONâ€"74 of 120 numbered copies. Printed by Saul & Lillian Marks at the Plantin Press, Los Angeles. With wood engravings by Mary Kuper. This is the rarest and most desired hand-printed work from a Southern California printer. It is notoriously rare as it was sold out on publication (Zeitlin bought out the edition and distributed it to private subscribers). It was elegantly designed by Saul Marks (1904-1974) and as a printed book it pleases with the binding, paper and illustrations. Dickover gives Marks a supreme compliment: "Los Angeles has had its share of distinguished printers; and one of them, Saul Marks of the Plantin Press, ranks as one of the greatest of the twentieth century." Some consider this Marks' masterpiece. The book was printed on the Albion Press. Saul was meticulous in his design and craft. He loved the beauty of italic type, which was used for this edition. "The letters beginning each line in the sonnets are roman; and following the typographic practice of Aldus, they are smaller in height than the lower case italic letters with ascenders." Mary Kuper was the Plantin Press's first woman apprentice. She took up wood engraving at the encouragement of Saul.

        Pénaltiés de l'Enfer ou Les Nouvelles Hebrides.

      Paris Arte Adrien Maeght 1974 - Oblong folio, (29 x 40 cm). No 51 of 200 copies on arches wove paper signed in red crayon by Miro, from a total edition of 220. Title, text and justification on Arches wove paper, 25 lithographs in total (20 colour, 5 black and white), most double-page. Original paper wrappers with first lithograph printed on front, spine and back; set of six lithographs in black by or after the same hand, one with additions in red ball-point pen, in beige paper folder entitled 'documents 1929,' housed in publisher's orange cloth covered box with artist's and author's names on spine. A fine example signed by Miro in red crayon. Both the Spanish artist Joan Miro and the French poet Robert Desnos were prominent figures in the Surrealist movement in Paris, where they met in 1925. Miro had long planned to illustrate a book by Desnos, but the project was delayed by the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, closely followed by the Second World War. Desnos was an active member of the French Resistance; he was arrested by the Gestapo in 1944 and sent to several concentration camps including Auschwitz and Buchenwald. Desnos survived the war only to die of typhoid a few weeks after the liberation of the camp where he was held. Nearly thirty years later, Desnos' widow approached Miro with the idea of illustrating his works again. In the end they settled on Pénalités de L'Enfer ou Les Nouvelles-Hébrides [The Penalties of Hell or The New Hebrides], Desnos' first work in prose, written in Morocco in 1922. Mourlot 959-90; Cramer 188. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Vernacular Photo Book]. A Day At Boston Common

      s.n., Boston 1974 - 9" x 9". Accordion style binding. 23 pages with 52 black and white photographs and 3 pages of typescript adhesive mounted. Photos measure from 3" x 4" to 4 7/8" x 7 1/4". Album very good plus with some smudging to covers, photos very good. Preserved in a fine protective case. With uncommon artistry, this engaging "homemade" photo book presents -- as the title indicates -- "A Day at Boston Common" in 1974. Belying the turmoil of the Vietnam War and resignation of Richard Nixon from the office of the Presidency, this photo book presents an unsettingly serene urban landscape. Its highlight is a sequence of photos showing a homeless man moving from a park bench to forage in a trash can, one shot showing his torso in the can, while in the background a couple hug and kiss. The photographer captured scenes of children playing, people laughing, a street bazaar [datable to Oct. 31 - Nov. 3), Hare Krishnas, musicians, another photographer, and several images of what appear to be the elderly homeless. We have been unable to identify the photographer "Bruce Marks" beyond his signature, but his streetwise photographic abilities are noteworthy.

        ANIMAL FARM]

      - Ferma zhivotnykh [i.e. Animal Farm]. [N.p., 1970s]. Typescript. 61 leaves. 30x21 cm. Owner's cardboard binding. Fine. The first page contains a short biography of George Orwell, taken from Big Soviet Encyclopedia, printed in 1974. Orwell's satire on the totalitarian regime was too candid for Soviet censors, so the author was labeled as 'trotskist' in 1930s and was never published during Soviet era. However it's not widely known that Orwell corresponded briefly with 'Internatsionalnaya literatura' magazine [i.e. International literature], in 1937. The editor-in-chief of the periodical wrote him asking to send his new novel 'The Road to Wigan Pier' to Moscow because periodical was interested in publishing it. Orwell sent the book replying that he could even write something specially for the magazine but also that they should know he recently fought in Spain on the side of POUM, and that led to the abruption of all the contacts with Orwell from Soviet side. From that time on Orwell's name was under taboo in official press, and his books were published only in late 1980s. Animal Farm was first published in USSR in Latvian periodical 'Rodnik' in 1988. Certainly Animal Farm as well as 1984 was too significant and interesting reading material for an ordinary soviet man, the dweller of the actual 'farm', so it's appearance in Samizdat was inevitable. According to Arlen Blum ('Zvezda', #6, 2003) samizdat versions of Animal Farm started to appear in USSR in late 1960s. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Sertum Orchidaceum. A Wreath of the Most Beautiful Orchidaceous Flowers.

      New York: Johnson Reprint Corporation. [1974]. Folio. Original green cloth, gilt lettering to upper board; coloured frontispiece and 49 colour plates, each with leaf of descriptive letterpress; very good, near fine internally. Number 106 of limited edition of 1000. A lavish reprint of the scarce 1838 original. One of Lindley's major works, this is distinguished by the illustrations of Sarah Ann Drake (1803-1857), a prolific British artist who started her career as a governess for the Lindley family. Lindley trained her to draw plants from life and by the 1830s she was working not only on his publications but for the journal of Royal Horticultural Society, Edward's Botanical Register and writers such as Nathaniel Wallich and George Bentham. Lindley named the Australian orchid genus Drakaea in her honour, although none of ths genus appear in the present work.

Né au Locle en 1923, Pierre Spori vivait dans une ferme à Praz-Bain sur Lausanne, puis plus tard à Epalinges et Fribourg. La manière dont les portraits de Spori (clowns, Christs, femmes. ) expriment la détresse est remarquable.

      - Dos feitos que os portugueses fizeram no descobrimento e conquista dos mares e terras do Oriente. Primeira Década [Segunda a Quarta Década] Sexta edição, actualizada na ortografia e anotada por Hernani Cidade. Notas históricas finais por Manuel Múrias. Divisão de Publicações e Biblioteca. Agência Geral das Colónias. Lisboa. MCMXLV -1974 - MCMXLVI. [1945 e 1946]. 4 volumes de 26x19 cm. Com x, 443, viii, 467, 547 e 651 págs. Encadernações da época com cantos e lombadas em pele, nervos e ferros a ouro nas lombadas. Ilustrado com reproduções da folha de erratas da 1ª edição. O segundo volume, com o texto da segunda Década, pertence à 4ª edição, conforme a edição Princeps, iniciada por António Baião e continuada por Luís F. Lindley Cintra. Lisboa. Imprensa Nacional Casa da Moeda. 1974. Exemplar com assinaturas de posse nas folhas de rosto, sublinhados e anotações a lápis no texto do 1º volume, com comentários proveitosos para a leitura. A edição de Hernâni Cidade (4ª edição da obra completa) é ainda hoje a edição de divulgação com melhor qualidade na transcrição e actualização do texto e por isso a mais acessível a todos os leitores. O 2º Volume pertencente à edição incompleta de António Baião e Lindley Cintra recorre a método diferente para a transcrição do texto seguindo os critérios de uma edição diplomática, conservando as abreviaturas e mesmo os erros do original. Asia é uma obra cimeira da história e da literatura de quinhentos perspassando nela o sopro épico e «a poesia intrínseca, feita de paixão e drama, da empresa dos descobrimentos e conquistas» e por isso serviu de fonte aos Lusíadas. Trata-se de uma obra em que o autor segue modelos historiográficos da literatura latina tanto na organização da matéria como no estilo, descrevendo todos os vice-reis, episódios históricos, batalhas, navios e as frotas enviadas para a África e Ásia desde 1412 até 1538. João de Barros (Viseu 1496 ? Ribeira de Alitém, Pombal 1570) foi um grande escritor, historiador, pedagogo e gramático do Século XVI, deixando uma obra muito variada e de elevado nível literário. Além de outras importantes funções no reinado de D. João III e de D. Sebastião, foi feitor das Casas da Índia e da Mina entre 1532 e 1568. Location/localizacao: M-13-C-22

        Épreuves corrigées "Dans l'eau changeante des résonances"

      1974 - - s.l. 1974, 16,2x25cm, 7 pages. - Epreuves corrigées par Henri Michaux de son texte « Dans l'eau changeante des résonances », publié dans le numéro 22 des Cahiers du Chemin, daté d'octobre 1974. 7 pages avec des corrections autographes au stylo à bille et au crayon. Tampon de l'imprimerie Floch sur le premier feuillet. Michaux écrit « Dans l'eau changeante des résonances » à la fin de sa vie, et complète ses réflexions sur la musique ainsi évoquées dans « Premières impressions » (1949) et « Un certain phénomène qu'on appelle musique » (1958). Dans cette ode à la sanza, modeste instrument d'origine congolaise, il explore les possibilités d'une musique vibrante, qui investit l'espace et offre sa « texture » aux sens émerveillés de l'auditeur. Vouant une haine sans égale à la musique « de compétition, de composition » occidentale, il retrouve dans les simples sons de cet instrument rudimentaire une pureté solitaire, dynamique, qui le réconcilie avec le genre entier, qu'il avait laissé aux foules et aux « gens simples ». L'épreuve corrigée donne à voir les dernières modifications apportées par l'auteur : scansion du texte par de nouvelles virgules, remplacement de certains mots, ajout de majuscules à chaque insertion de poèmes dans le corps du texte - les poèmes agissant comme des descriptions sonores de son expérience musicale. Précieux témoignage génétique de la pensée de Michaux sur la musique. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Print tests corrected by Henri Michaux of his text "Dans l'eau changeante des résonances". [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Tygers at Play

      Published by Ian Bain 1974 - Etching, finished with a graver. State iiia/iiia. This wonderful print is a later impression of George Stubbs masterpiece 'Tygers at Play', this image is both touching and sublime and it epitomizes Stubbs' genius as an animal painter. George Stubbs is considered one of the greatest English painters. His ingenious animal and sporting pictures remain unrivalled in their passionate depiction of emotion and their commitment to naturalistic observation. Stubbs' was briefly apprenticed to the painter Hamlet Winstanley, a relationship that quickly ended, leaving the young artist to his own tuition. In contrast to contemporary academic theory, Stubbs' attached great importance to the belief that art should imitate nature, not the work of other artists. He spent years carefully studying human and equine anatomy so that he could truthfully represent natural form and movement. A result of this study was his famous 'Anatomy of the Horse', which details, with beautiful engraving, the various elements of a horse's anatomy, from skeletal form to muscular definition. Continuing in search on innovation, Stubbs began experimenting with a myriad of different mediums, becoming accomplished in both enamels and printmaking. Through arduous application, he became a talented mezzotint engraver and worked with ease in both soft ground, and etching techniques. Stubbs was elected director of the Society of Artists and a Royal Academician, and today his prized paintings are housed in some of the finest museums in the world. This animated image shows two leopards at play in front of the opening of a dark cave. Although the print was entitled 'Tygers at Play', early writings on natural history show that tyger was a generic term, commonly applied to all the larger cats, with the sole exception of the lion. This magnificent print not only demonstrates Stubbs' talents as an engraver but also exemplifies his genius when expressing animal emotion. In contrast to some of his darker images of conflict, 'Tygers at Play' is light and carefree while still remaining true to nature. In mood and effect this image is nothing short of sublime, it blends natural observation with a sense of emotion creating a visual feast for the viewer. This is a later impression from a limited edition of 175 copies, printed in 1974 under the supervision of Philip McQueen. The edition is printed on J. Barcham Green `Penshurst' paper, and published by Ian Bain at the John Boydell Press for Observer Art Ltd. The total edition of 235 prints was completed by 60 copies printed in brown-black ink on J. Green & Co. hand-made paper. Lennox-Boyd, George Stubbs 60 iiia/iiia; Gilbey no. 36; Parris pp. 7-11; Siltzer, The Story of British Sporting Prints p. 271; Snelgrove no. 27; Sparrow 1922, p. 135; Taylor 1969 no. 2.

        Carte sotto stampa. Frammenti

      CASTELLANI, LEONARDO. Carte sotto stampa. Frammenti. Reggio Emilia: Prandi, 1974. 65 pagine. Diciannove incisioni originali  delle quali nove nel testo e dieci, numerate e firmate dall'Artista, in contenitore a parte. 37x27 cm. Lievissime abrasioni sulla custodia. Perfetto l'interno. Cartella editoriale in tela con custodia in cartoncino. [M244] Bellissimo libro d'artista, tirato in 135 copie numerate e firmate dall'Artista, con un suo scritto e diciannove tavole originali incise all'acquaforte. Leonardo Castellani (Faenza, 1896 - Urbino, 1984) pittore, incisore e scrittore. Fin dalla sua gioventù fu attratto da varie espressioni artistiche, dall'intaglio del legno fino alla pittura, passando per la scultura, la decorazione e la ceramica ma, solo con  l'acquaforte, l'acquerello ed il disegno riuscì a raggiungere il massimo della sua creatività artistica. Entrò in contatto con l'avanguardia futurista, a Roma e a Cesena, intrattenendo rapporti, tra gli altri, anche con Marinetti e Balla. Sempre a Cesena, si appassionò alla ceramica ed  in seguito, a Venezia, ebbe modo di sperimentare la pittura. Intrattenne rapporti di amicizia con Vincenzo Cardarelli , Virgilio Guidi, Pio Semeghini, Diego Valeri ed Ezra Pound. Dal 1928 al 1930 visse a Fano ed è lì che mise a punto, praticamente da autodidatta,  la tecnica dell'incisione privilegiando il paesaggio senza trascurare però la figura umana e la natura morta. Nel 1930 ottenne la cattedra di calcografia all'Istituto per l'illustrazione e la decorazione del libro di Urbino mantenendola per un lunghissimo periodo durante il quale formò  molti artisti tra cui  Nunzio Gulino, Arnaldo Ciarrocchi, Renato Bruscaglia, Enrico Ricci, Walter Piacesi, Adriano Calavalle. Nel secondo dopoguerra, Castellani godette di un ampio consenso tra gli incisori suoi contemporanei e fu apprezzatissimo  collaboratore della rivista "Il Selvaggio", che fu un importante canale di diffusione del nuovo stile dell'incisione italiana. Oltre all'autobiografico "Vivere nel tuo paese", pubblicò un trittico composto da: "Pagine senza cornice" (1946), "Quaderni di un calcografo" (1955) e "Carte sotto stampa" (1974). -

        The Power Broker.

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1974. First edition of the author's Pulitzer-Prize winning work on Robert Moses. Thick octavo, original black cloth, cartographic endpapers. Signed by Robert A. Caro on the title page. Fine in a a near fine price-clipped dust jacket. Dust jacket design by Paul Bacon. A very nice example of this bulky book, which tends to show wear. One of the most acclaimed books of our time, winner of both the Pulitzer and the Francis Parkman prizes, the Power Broker tells the hidden story behind the shaping (and mis-shaping) of twentieth-century New York and makes public what few have known: that Robert Moses was, for almost half a century, the single most powerful man of our time in New York, the shaper not only of the city's politics but of its physical structure and the problems of urban decline that plague us today. "Surely the greatest book ever written about a city" (David Halberstam). Theodore H. White called it "A masterpiece of American reporting. It's more than the story of a tragic figure or the exploration of the unknown politics of our time. It's an elegantly written and enthralling work of art."
