        The Silmarillion, 1982 Super Deluxe Signed Limited Numbered Edition

      London: Allen & Unwin, 1977. Limited/Numbered. Full-Leather. Near Fine/No Jacket, as Issued. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien. Published by Allen and Unwin in 1982. This is the Signed Super Deluxe Limited Numbered Edition. "This is copy number 83 of the first one thousand copies off the press of the first edition of The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien, which were reserved for later publication in this collector's edition." A Near Fine example of the very hard to find Super Deluxe Signed Limited Edition issued to coincide with the fifth anniversary of the first publication of The Silmarillion. Wayne Hammond has commented that the records, though incomplete, indicate that probably only about 300 of the 1000 were actually bound and sold. So this is certainly one of the scarcest of the Tolkien 1st Editions, and is also signed by his son, the editor Christopher Tolkien. Collected and edited by Christopher Tolkien after his fathers death. Original publishers full red leather binding, with raised bands, gilt stamping, and top edge gilded as issued. The book features red silk ribbon marker bound in, raised bands and gilt stamped Title, Author, and Publisher on the spine. The front boards features the JRRT Monogram gilt stamped in single gilt ruled box. Blind stamp of the heraldic device Tolkien designed to represent Luthien Tinuviel to the rear boards. On the first free endpaper, the Publisher's Limitation Plate, gives the Limitation number of 83 of 1000, along with the signature of Christopher Tolkien. A striking example of a very hard to find book. Matches in size and style the 1987 Unwin Hyman Super Deluxe Limited Edition of the Hobbit. One small spot of foxing to the half title page, no previous owners name or any other writing. There are no other faults to the book, no offsetting, no scratches or shelfwear to the bottom edge of the boards. The slipcase is the original publishers slipcase with the book opening edged with matching red leather. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions. Near Fine / No Jacket, as Issued.

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.\" - Maßgebliche Ausgabe.

Mit sehr zahlr., teils farbigen Abb. (Fotos, Anzeigen etc.) Schwarze Lwbde mit Rtiteln. - Beigegeben vier Einzelnummern. - Die gebundenen Jahrgänge in tadellosem Zustand, die Einzelhefte mit kleinen Randläsuren.

      - Durchgehende Folge von 44 Nummern der monatlich erscheinenden US-amerikanischen Lifestyle-Zeitschrift, die aus einer Mischung von Features und Interviews von und mit Berühmtheiten aus Kultur und Unterhaltung und einem hohen Anteil gewerblicher Anzeigen besteht, wobei der redaktionelle Teil (30%) und Anzeigen (70%) gestalterisch ineinander übergehen. Gegründet wurde "Interview" (teils mit dem Nebentitel "Andy Warhol's Interview") in New York von dem Pop-Art-Künstler Andy Warhol und dem Journalisten John Wilcock im Eigenverlag der Firma Andy Warhol Enterprises Inc. Die Zeitschrift gilt als Vorläufer heutiger Zeitgeist-, Lifestyle- und Fashion-Publikationen; vollständige bzw. größere durchgehende Teilstücke sind selten im Handel zu finden, besonders wie hier in diesem ungewöhnlichen Erhaltungszustand. Lose beiliegend die Einzelnummern No. 2/ Vol. VII (1977), No. 9, 10 u. 12/ Vol. VIII (1978). - "Die Titelseite wurde anfangs von dem Grafiker Richard Bernstein gestaltet, der Warhols signifikant grelle Bildsprache in einem pastellfarbenen Stil imitierte. Chefredakteur war zuerst Warhols langjähriger Assistent Gerard Malanga, der allerdings nach einer Diskrepanz mit Pat Hackett von Warhol durch Paul Morrissey ersetzt wurde. Als weiteren Redakteur engagierten Warhol und Morrisey den jungen Filmstudenten Bob Colacello. In der Anfangszeit führte Warhol die meisten 'Interviews' noch selbst, indem er auf Partys oder in Diskotheken wie dem Studio 54 einfach das Tonband mitlaufen ließ. Die Beiträge wurden oft unredigiert ins Blatt genommen. Während der 1970er Jahre erlebte die Publikation mit der aufkommenden Yuppie-Generation einen Boom. Neben Warhol und seinen Redakteuren verfassten im Laufe der Jahre zahlreiche Berühmtheiten wie Bianca Jagger oder Truman Capote eigene Beiträge in 'Interview'" (Wikipedia). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Original proofs for the artwork on Love You Live.

      New York: Rolling Stone Records, 1977 - Excellent condition. Presented float mounted in 2 black wooden frames with conservation glass. 2 offset lithograph proofs on heavy card. Each sheet size 41.8 × 71 cm. Possibly unique proofs of the album cover artwork commissioned from Andy Warhol for the Rolling Stones album Love You Live. These proofs, which were purchased from the late Art Collins, President of Rolling Stones Records, are almost certainly the only set surviving that show the design as it was intended by Warhol, without the hand-drawn title and track-listing with which it was issued. These were a considerable bone of contention for Warhol, who had imagined the record label would put the album out in a transparent sleeve of some sort with the titling and credits imposed, leaving his artwork - complete as far as he was concerned - untouched, something he made abundantly clear to Jerry Hall; "I told Jerry I thought Mick had ruined the Love You Live cover I did for them by writing all over it - it's his handwriting, and he wrote so big. The kids who buy the album would have a good piece of art if he hadn't spoiled it" (The Andy Warhol Diaries, 5 July 1978). Vincent Fremont, who ran Warhol's businesses and was the executor of his estate, confirmed that "Andy was very upset about the text that got added to his original artwork for the cover of Love You Live that the work on the cover was conceived by Warhol as an image only and that he very very upset about the addition of text to the final printed form". All of which meant that Warhol was genuinely loth to sign copies of the album presented to him, remarkable for a man notorious for his willingness to append his signature to more or less anything put in front of him.
