         Theologische Realenzyklopädie. [Insgesamt 41 Bände]. Herausgegeben von Gerhard Müller, in Gemeinschaft mit Horst Balz, James Cameron, Christian Grethlein, Stuart G. Hall, Brian Hebblethwaite, Karl Hoheisel, Wolfgang Janke, Volker Leppin, Kurt Schäferdiek, Gottfried Seebaß, Hermann Spieckermann, Günter Stemberger & Konrad Stock; Alphabetische Bände 1-36 (Aaron - Zypern), Register zu Band 1-17, Register zu Band 1-27, Abkürzungsverzeichnis (2., überarbeitete und erweiterte Auflage), Gesamtregister (Band 1: Bibelstellen, Orte, Sachen; Band 2: Namen).

      Berlin & New York: Walter de Gruyter 1977-2007. - Mit zahlreichen Abbildungen auf Tafeln sowie mehrfach gefalteten Karten. Gebundene Ausgabe des größten deutschsprachigen Buchprojekts in Theologie und Religionswissenschaft im Ausgang des 20. Jahrhunderts und Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts. - Verlagsdarstellung: "Die Theologische Realenzyklopädie (TRE) repräsentiert seit ihrer ersten Lieferung 1976 den Wissensstand der theologischen Forschung im Ganzen. In ca. 2000 Artikeln wird eine Vielzahl historischer und theologischer Einzelheiten in ihrem Kontext von Glaube und Denken, von Theologie und Religion dargestellt. Die TRE wird durch Register (Bibelstellen, Orte, Namen, Sachen) übersichtlich erschlossen. Mit ihren nun fertiggestellten 36 Bänden ist die TRE ein unentbehrliches Arbeitsmittel und Nachschlagewerk für Theologen, Geisteswissenschaftler und für alle an Religion und Theologie Interessierten." Auszug aus dem Vorwort des 1. Bandes von Carl Heinz Ratschow (für den Herausgeberkreis, 1977): "Die Realencyklopädie für protestantische Theologie und Kirche - die RE - wurde von Albert Hauck in ihrer 3. Auflage, abgesehen von den Nachtragsbänden, mit dem 21. Band 1908 abgeschlossen. Die zwei Generationen von Theologen, die seitdem die theologische Forschung weitergetrieben haben, faßten die Ergebnisse ihrer Arbeit nicht enzyklopädisch zusammen. Es erschienen in dieser Zeit große Spezialwerke in den einzelnen Disziplinen oder kürzer gefaßte Nachschlagewerke. Eine Repräsentation der theologischen Forschung im Ganzen hat es seit Haucks Realenzyklopädie nicht gegeben. Wir sind der Überzeugung, daß eine solche Repräsentation gegenwärtig erneut in Angriff genommen werden muß. Das zeigt allein schon folgende Tatsache: Die theologische Forschung ist während der 50er und 60er Jahre insofern in ein neues Stadium getreten, als die Einzelfächer bewußter als in früheren Jahrzehnten nach dem Gesamtzusammenhang von Theologie fragen. Die Überzeugung, Theologie weder als Exegese noch als Historie oder Systematik hinreichend darstellen zu können, ist nahezu selbstverständlich geworden. Damit aber ist die Grundvoraussetzung dafür, theologische Forschung erneut als ganze sehen zu können und ihre Darstellung zu unternehmen, gegeben." - Schutzumschläge teilweise gering berieben. - Kopfschnitte teils leicht angestaubt. Einband des Registerbandes zu Band 1-7 etwas fleckig, ansonsten ist der Zustand der Bände durchgängig als sehr gut bis neuwertig zu bezeichnen. ISBN: 978311007499 Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 58000 Gr. 8° (25 x 17 cm). Orig.-Halblederbände mit goldgeprägten Rückentiteln und Orig.-Schutzumschlägen. [Hardcover / fest gebunden].

Lovecraft's 1924 story "The Hound" and has been referenced in works ranging from the supernatural fiction of August Derleth to Sam Raimi's Evil Dead film series.

         The Silmarillion, Signed By Christopher Tolkien

      Allen & Unwin, London 1977 - Fine book and jacket. Very slight fading to spine title colors, with a small scratch and tear, likely from being pulled out from a shelf by the spine head. Very rare for being signed by Christopher Tolkien. It might have been signed at the time of publication in 1977 as the book is in unread condition overall. The binding is stiff indicating its not been opened much. We can't say for sure when it was signed, but we will guarranty the signature with a COA, please ask. We have sold only a few Christopher Tolkien signed books as so few come on the market. He's quite elderly and now having left the Tolkien Estate as a trustee, we doubt there will be many of his signed items available in the future. His signature is likely to soar in value with serious Tolkien collectors. It is appropriate to have his signature in this book, the first he totally reworked and published on his father's behalf.

         The Illustrations for:] India Love Poems.

      Printed at the Senecio Press for Paradine and PL Editions 1977 - 18 superb colourprinted lithographic plates by John Piper printed on Arches Velin pure rag paper, ff. 18, folio, the sheets loose and within brown paper wrapper stiffened with card, fine. A full set of Piper's lithographs for this attractive book - accompanying texts translated by Tambimuttu. These are from the original printing, at the Senecio Press in Charlbury (the text pages were printed at the Rampant Lions Press), and have been excellently preserved. Piper writes of his work for 'India Love Poems': 'The illustrations, to use musical analogies, are variations, rhapsodies or inventions on sculpture and paintings in Indian temples of the Golden Age, from the VIth century to the XIIIth. They are not intended to be representational of the form or colour of the works themselves but are affected by the spirit and purpose of them, and often by particular poses'.

         A colllection of slides taken by Nicholas Tresilian, a director of the APG. Taken at the RCA conference in 1976 and Documenta 6 at Kassal West Germany 1977.

      Self-published., London 1977 - Three boxes of colour slides taken by Nicholas Tresilian. One of APG events one of Documenta 6 and one of his own images labelled 'High Entropy Arrys', 'Thresholds', 'Occultations' and 'Death'. 376 slides in total, all in very good condition. Approx 30 are on the 1977 Royal College of Art seminar and presentation, featuring Steveni, L atham, Breakwell, Brisley, Tresilian and Coward etc. Approx 200 on Documenta 6 at Kassel: includes multiples images on Breakwell, Beuys, De Maria, Serra, Flanagan, 'Grey Men', Gerz, Dieter Rot, Anti-Documenta stunt, the Free International Universiity, Gilbert & George, Rinke, Nam June Paik , Richard Long, Marcel Broodthaers etc. Multiple shots of the outdoor sculptures and installations. Also multiples shots of Kassel and locality. The idea of Artist Placement stemmed from a group of UK artists, and was guided by John Latham and initiated by Barbara Steveni, who were experimenting with radical new forms of art. Directed by Steveni, the APG pioneered the concept of art in the social context. From the outset their notion of ‘placement’ acknowledged the marginalised position of the artist and sought to improve the situation. By enabling artists to engage actively in non-art environments, the APG shifted the function of art towards ‘decision-making’.Acting outside the conventional art gallery system, the APG attempted, through negotiation and agreement, to place artists within industry and government departments. The artist would become involved in the day-to-day work of the organisation and be paid a salary equal to that of other employees by the host organization, while being given the new role of maintaining sufficient autonomy to acting on an open brief. These placements resulted in a variety of artists’ reports, films, photographs, interviews, poetry and art installations. Artists of international repute, such as Keith Arnatt, Ian Breakwell, Stuart Brisley, George Levantis and David Hall, had important placements or early associations with the APG.Like many other British artists and groups working outside common frameworks, the APG had a high profile abroad, particularly in Germany. Recent years have seen an increasing recognition that the APG served as a catalyst for many artist-in-residence programmes and community schemes, both in Britain and abroad. However, the APG’s brief was always more about political, social, and long-term engagement than about parachuting artists into problem zones. Like British Pop, the APG initiated and developed an aspect of art practice long before many of its contemporaries.Today the organisation exists as Organisation and Imagination (O + I). The name APG was changed in 1989 in order to distinguish it from the art administration’s placement schemes, set up closely along the lines of the APG’s legacy, to the group, highly problematic. O + I describes itself as ‘an independent, international artist initiative, a network consultancy and research organisation’. Its board of directors, members and specialist advisors include leading artists, civil servants, politicians, scientists, and academics from various disciplines [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
