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.

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. Diverse, originale, surprenante, son oeuvre émarge à l?Art Brut et reste jusqu?à aujourd?hui largement méconnue.Please notify before visiting to see a book. Prices are excl.

        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.

        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.

        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."

        A UNICEF Christmas card (printed on paper, unfolded dimensions 220 x 155 mm); on the blank verso is an autograph letter signed from Olda (Mrs Kokoschka). It is also inscribed and signed at the foot of the letter 'Love and kindest wishes for 1977, yours, Oskar Kokoschka'. The letter, to unnamed recipients, contains season's greetings and thank yous for various kindnesses; we know it to be addressed to one of his former students, Ernest Roth, and his wife in Adelaide, South Australia

      It is offered together with another eleven letters and an aerogram (seven in German, five in English, dated between 1974 to 1980), all written and signed by Olda Kokoschka to the Roths. The content tends to be routine and repetitive, but it is not without appeal. For example, in November 1978, Olda writes 'that Kokoschka [aged 92] is fairly well and interested in all events in the world as before. We read together a lot and hope that the winter will be kind to us'. There is also a small quantity of related material, including four post-1980 Christmas cards from Olda (these reproduce Kokoschka artwork), the original envelopes for the letters, and some minor printed ephemera.

        1917-1974. [History of the Kornilov Regiment. 1917 - 1974].

      Parizh 1974 - Octavo (24 x 16.5 cm). 670 pp., decorated throughout. White publisher's wrappers; soiled, small tears to spine. First and only edition; "very rare" (Savine). Detailed account of the history of the Kornilov regiment, one of the earliest formed voluntary divisions of the White Army. The self-published work was compiled by Levitov (1893-1982), the Colonel of the Kornilov regiment, whose first-hand experience and memories are combined here with academic research and interviews with participants of the events. He describes the formation of the regiment in May-June 1917, the epic 'Ice March' into the empty steppe towards the Kuban, the siege of Ekaterinodar, the death of General Kornilov and transfer of the command to General Denikin, march towards Moscow, relocation of the White Army to Crimea and further life in exile. The work benefits from multiple photographs, plans and historical documents reproduced along the text.

        Records of the Australian Academy of Science. Volume 3, Number 1, November 1974 to Volume 4, Number 3, May 1980. [Together with its continuation under the title] Historical Records of Australian Science. Volume 5, Number 1, November 1980 to Volume 19, Number 1, June 2008

      Canberra, Australian Academy of Science, 1974 to 2001, and CSIRO, 2002 to 2008. Large octavo, 55 issues, each one approximately 120 pages with numerous illustrations. Original card covers in fine condition (with two exceptions: some leaves in Volume 3, Number 2 have become loose, and Volume 6, Number 2 has been bound without the card covers in flush-cut quarter contrasting cloth). The last ten issues have the ownership signature of Dr John Jenkin (a contributor) on the front cover. Loosely inserted are photocopies of the contents pages of the eight numbers of the missing first two volumes (published between 1966 and 1973). The journal was published quarterly for the first fourteen volumes, then twice yearly, with two exceptions: Volume 3, Numbers 3/4 is a double issue, and Volume 4, Number 4 does not exist. Uncommonly interesting.

        Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (Signed First)

      Hodder & Stoughton 1974 - First edition, first impression, beautifully signed in blue ink to the title page by John le Carré &#150; the elegant and relaxed style of the signature (in contrast to the more &#145;hurried&#146; le Carré signature of recent years) suggests it is a relatively early example. Near Fine: firm and square binding in sharp black cloth, lightly rubbed to the spine tips and corners; bright gilt; publisher's purple topstain, slightly and evenly faded; a few faint spots to the fore-edge of the closed page block; &#145;Alec&#146; and a contemporary date in ink to the ffep; a little surface abrasion by the gutter of p.289 (due to over-gluing in production), else bright, crisp and clean. The unclipped dustwrapper (£2.95 net stated) is Very Good: bright and vibrant and with an unfaded spine; rubbing to the spine tips, corners and front flap fold, with a small chip to the latter; presented in a removable, archival-quality Brodart protective cover. Arguably le Carré&#146;s masterpiece, and scarce signed. All orders are sent very carefully wrapped in bubble wrap and sturdy cardboard. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Larry Sultan and Mike Mandel: How to Read Music in One Evening / A Clatworthy Catalog [SIGNED ASSOCIATION COPY (by Larry Sultan)]

      Clatworthy Colorvues 1974 - First edition, first printing. Signed and inscribed in blue ink on the copyright page (by Larry Sultan) to an important figure in contemporary photography (please inquire). Soft cover. Photographically illustrated wrappers; no dust jacket as issued. Found images edited and arranged by Larry Sultan and Mike Mandel. Unpaginated (60 pp.), with black-and-white plates throughout. 8 x 10-7/8 inches. Fine (1mm crease at upper corner of wrapper). From Sandra Phillips: "In 1974, Mike Mandel and Larry Sultan, produced their first collaborative book, How to Read Music in One Evening, A Clatworthy Catalog. This comprised a series of drawings and rather lowbrow photographic illustrations lifted from cheap ads or instructional manuals: the sort you would find on the back of comic books or inside matchbooks or in the pages of the (now defunct) Sunset House catalog. The advertised electric neck warmers, machines to strip corn off the cob, tape to repair the water hose for your car were arranged and cropped, and these wonderfully ordinary, naive pictures were reordered and became a mysterious and funny metaphorical book essentially about sex. Those strange gray pictures which demonstrated how a mechanical nose hair trimmer worked, or how to place potatoes on a metal spike to cook them more efficiently, resembled the collaged work of Jess, or Bruce Conner.In How to Read Music, however, the pictures were arranged with a respect for the authority of the original image, which, while cropped (and excising the text) retains its identity while at the same time is altered by the anomalous relationship it has with the other pictures. Even though the mechanics they illustrate is decidedly low tech, mop handles, shoulder strap details, the consistent theme is of people using mechanical devices in a kind of banal but utopian association, women smiling giddily as they try on sunshades or telephone receivers. Only toward the end is there even a sense of foreboding: a close-up of a hand gun near a man's shirtless chest, a man's face covered with a ski mask except for the eyes and nose, a box of jewels and documents with ghostly flames licking its surface. Not surprisingly, this little book gives clues to the photographic project that immediately followed it?[Evidence]." Signed by Author. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
