        The Necronomicon.

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. Although this edition capitalises on Lovecraft's creation, it has little connection to the Lovecraftian mythos of the Necronomicon and instead focuses on its purported links to Sumerian mythology.

        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]

        Portrait of T.S. Eliot.

      [No date c.1977] 450 x 560 mm in glazed wooden frame. Artist's Proof print captioned and signed in pencil by the artist. A note on the backing to the frame suggests that this was a limited edition print of 45 copies. The backing also has a label with Jacqueline Morreau's London address. A handsome image of the poet deep in thought somking a small cigar. "A US born figurative painter working on the representation of women from a feminist viewpoint, Jacqueline Morreau studied with Rico Lebrun in Los Angeles and completed a training in medical illustration before settling permanently in London in 1972. Technical skill and concern with depicting the human body have both remained central to her work, even when this commitment contravened feminism's 1970s rejection of oil painting as too traditional to be politically valid. Although Morreau's art is traditional in appearance, it is revolutionary in content. Morreau was one of the four artists who organized "Women's Images of Men" - an exhibition which opened at the Institute of Contemporary Arts and toured Britain in 1980-81 - and, in her paintings and drawings, she has continued to express what she has described as `the divided self'. Through metaphorical scenes, often derived from classical mythology, Morreau presents complex and often conflicting views of women which not only reclaim and represent familiar stories from a female perspective, but also act as allegories for the values of contemporary society... Just as Greek mythology is underpinned by strata of complex and ambiguous sexual messages, so are Morreau's paintings... Morreau is one of the few artists to produce work that is both didactic and open to wide interpretation. " Louisa Buck, The Sexual Imagination, ed Harriett Gilbert, London 1993

The print run for the US First Edition was 25,000 and, given the low print runs of the UK editions of 'Carrie' and 'The Stand', which consisted of just 500 and 1000 copies respectively, the UK First Edition of 'The Shining' is likely to be considerably rarer than that of the US. Small bump to top of spine; edges toned and lightly foxed; a little off-setting to front endpaper and front board slightly bowed at the bottom. Original and unclipped dust jacket has some rubbing, chipping and wear to the top with a stain to the inside, and is now protected in a high-quality archival cover.

        The Silmarillion, 1982 Super Deluxe 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. Originally published by Allen and Unwin in 1977, reserved and later bound in Red Leather and released in 1982. This is the Super Deluxe Limited Numbered Edition. "This is copy number 189 of the first one thousand copies off the press of the first edition of The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien, reserved for later publication in this collector's edition." A Near Fine example of the very hard to find Super Deluxe Limited Edition issued to coincide with the fifth anniversary of the first publication of The Silmarillion. 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 189 of 1000. The map of Beleriand and the Lands to the North appears as a fold-out map, and is printed in black and red, no tears or marks noted, very clean and bright. Noted points or error's: Page 330 line 4 shows no period after Feanor. Page 352 line 39 has an italicized "and" in 'Lord of Waters and King of the Sea'. Making this the First State of the First Impression, not surprising being one of the first 1000 printed. 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. No foxing, no previous owners name or any other writing. The only fault to the book is a slight bit of fading to the red leather on the spine, no offsetting, no scratches or shelfwear to the bottom edge of the boards. The slipcase is the original publishers slipcase with the opening edged with matching red leather, also in Near Fine condition with light rubbing to the bottom edges and corners of the red cloth covering. 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.
