        Circ Cric Cric Trapeze Circus Circus

      Portage indiana Chicago Illinois: Joe D'Ambrosio, 1976. Limited Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. As New/Slip Case . 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. Joe D'Ambrosio. Trapeze... THINK CIRCUS, is a tour-de-force by master artist, bookmaker and author, the late great Joe D'Ambrosio." I hoped to bridge the gap between the Fine Arts and the Book Arts". This has been masterfully done by using a wonderful eye for color and shapes with an engineering degree from the Illinois Institute of Technology.The artist shows off his printing ability by " using two extremely different type faces which work well together because they have different design functions on the same page. He shows his ingenious feats of engineering in the manner in which he bound the book. " The threads which hold the pages in place exit through the spine of the book and become the straining ropes for the circus tent serigraphed on the front cover. The treads had to be waxed so their 90-degree angles remained rigid in the travel from spine to front cover. Otherwise the book would sag when the book was opened and the tension is removed. Trapeze has 19 fabulous serigraphs each one a work of art on it's own. Most are printed using several colors, red, blue, green, brown yellow gold leaf and others. There are also several black, white and gray prints.This book is #23 of 50 and 7 artist proofs and has been set in 18pt Centaur and 24pt P.T. Barnum ( an idea of printer Elmore Mundell), and printed on Rives BFK hand made paper by the compulsive printer, Portage Indiana.The boards are covered in tent canvas amd the paste downs are of handmade paper.The slipcase is handmade paper over board and allows the book to slip in either way. There is one unique and wonderful print at the beginning of the book dedicated to two of the authors most ardent supporters on the celebration of their wedding. The book is signed by both D'Ambrosio and printer Elmore Mundell. For the discerning collector of Fine Art and Fine Bookmaking this very special item has it all.

        That Time.

      Faber and Faber. 1976. 8vo., in original paperback wrappers. A very good copy. First edition inscribed by Beckett to his friend the actor Patrick Magee and his wife Belle, "For Pat and Belle with love from Sam London May 76". Magee's first stage experience in Ireland was with Anew McMaster's touring company, performing the works of Shakespeare. It was here that he first worked with Pinter. He was then brought to London by Tyrone Guthrie for a series of Irish plays. He met Beckett in 1957 and soon recorded passages from the novel, Molloy, and the short story, From an Abandoned Work, for BBC radio. Impressed by "the cracked quality of Magee's distinctly Irish voice," Beckett requested copies of the tapes and wrote Krapp's Last Tape especially for the actor. First produced at the Royal Court Theatre in London on 28 October 1958, the play starred Magee directed by Donald McWhinnie. A televised version with Magee directed by McWhinnie was later broadcast by BBC2 on 29 November 1972. Beckett's biographer Anthony Cronin wrote that "there was a sense in which, as an actor, he had been waiting for Beckett as Beckett had been waiting for him."[

        The Biblical Etchings of Marvin Hayes.

      Oxmoor House, Birmingham 1976 - First edition. One of 100 numbered copies (#21). Folio (22 x 15 inches) . 8 pp. of printed matter (bifolio and two loose sheets) and 53 original etchings of Old and New Testament scenes, signed, numbered and titled in pencil by Hayes. Prints pulled by Emiliano Sorini from the original copper plates on Arches paper. Each etching in an acid-free polyester film. Text printed by the Trianon Press. Housed in the original calf clamshell case by A. Horowitz of New Jersey (slight crack to upper joint). Mild browning to outer edge of title page (as it was not sleeved). A superb set of these etchings."After graduating from Columbia, Hayes became an award-winning illustrator, with work in Esquire, McCallÕs, Playboy, Redbook, ReaderÕs Digest, Time and Good Housekeeping. Encouraged by Rousseau, he turned to fine art, working primarily in egg tempera and copperplate etchings. Eventually, HayesÕ work would be featured in one-man shows in the United States, Europe and South America and as sought-after acquisitions in museums and private collections. GodÕs Images [the title of the trade publication of these etchings] is HayesÕ piece de resistance, a monumental endeavor that, because of its biblical significance, is sure to endure as an important legacy. Its creation began when representatives of Oxmoor House Inc. of Birmingham, Ala., were in New York and saw HayesÕ work. The publisher planned a new version of the Bible and contracted with Hayes to provide 12 illustrations. ÒThey liked them so much that they signed me up to do 38 more. I actually did 53 all together,Ó Hayes said. ÒThey realized that with the text of the Bible and the etchings, they would have to get hernia insurance to get it out of the stores. So they decided to do the book another way. James Dickey saw the etchings and said, ÔIÕve always wanted to do a treatment of the Bible.ÕÓ (Lamar University). The Oxmoor people had seen the Far Gallery 1976 display of Hayes' Biblical etchings. The Gallery issued an exhibition catalog of the images with the same title as this offering and with an introduction by noted Southern writer James Dickey. In 1977, Oxmoor House commissioned a book containing 53 images and with substantial text James Dickey. This book, God's Images, proved enormously popular and over 1,000,000 copies were sold. In conjunction with the book they commissioned a deluxe set of 100 copies of the engravings and that is what is being here. In 1985, the Vatican Museums in Rome exhibited the works, which remain in the Vatican collection. A complete set of the etchings is a treasured part of the Dishman Art MuseumÕs permanent collection. We can find no copies of this limited edition ever being offered at auction nor any listing on OCLC.

      4 volumes, set. (3 quarto volumes and 1 folio). Limited edition facsimiles. #488 of 515 sets (of which 500 were for sale). Quarter red morocco with marbled boards, gilt, housed in individual slipcases within a brown box. The paper has been specially made to match the Whatman paper Repton used in the original books. Illustrated throughout in collotype, using up to 10 colours, reproducing Repton's text and water colour designs for the improvement of each estate. Edward Malins' text is accompanied by black and white photographs of the properties taken in Summer 1975 by Eric de Maré. Still in the publisher's packaging for delivery to the original owner who seems never to have opened the parcel (this bookseller now has in order to catalogue it). As new.The Red Books (so-called because of the morocco binding) were an inspired piece of promotion by England's most successful landscape architect after Capability Brown. Around 300 were produced, of which roughly half survive. Each volume was unique to the property and the use of overlays enabled 'before-and-after' views. The Basilisk Press facsimiles are of the highest quality and allow a better appreciation of the art of Humphry Repton which Edward Malins' supplementary volume puts in its historical context.

        Pharmacopoea collegii medicorum Bergomi, rationem compenendi medicamenta usitatiora complectens. Altera editio .Bergamo, Comino Ventura, 1581. Folio. With woodcut device on title-page and colophon. Modern sheepskin parchment.

      - Durling 989; G. Sonnedecker, Kremers and Urdang's History of pharmacy (1976), p. 424. Second edition of the first official pharmacopoeia of the Venetian Republic, compiled by the College of Physicians of Bergamo. "The title 'pharmacopoea' was not used in Italy until 1580 at Bergamo" (Sonnedecker), when the first edition, the Pharmacopoeia Bergamensis, was published. In 1601 the pharmacopoeia was replaced by the official pharmacopoeia of Bologna, after various delays to a revised edition.Since the appearance of the first pharmacopoeia, by Valerius Cordus (1515-1544), the authorities of several cities followed his example, compiling books with remedies and cures to various diseases and ailments. Their main goal was to enhance uniformity between the cities’ physicians, their prescriptions and their medicines. However, many private books of medicinal recipes were in circulation as well.With a restoration to title-page, not affecting the text, and one leaf detached. Heavily browned, with some water stains, small spots and thumbing. A fair copy.
