        SEARCH AND DESTROY Nos. 1-11 [Complete Run] [with]: RE/SEARCH 1-3

      San Francisco: Search and Destroy / Rough Trade, 1977-1979 and 1980-1981. First Edition. Wraps. Near fine. Tabloid on newsprint. All folded once, as issued. Generally very good or better with some toning and some splitting here and there at folds. Occasional soil and chipping. Else a set clean and sound overall. Most issues 16-28pp. Heavily illustrated throughout with B&W photographs. Complete run of "the most ambitious publication of the entire punk press" (Berniere & Primois 218). Founded by Vale Hamanaka while work- ing at City Lights Bookstore and originally funded by Ferlinghetti and Allen Ginsberg, SEARCH & DESTROY was (according to Jello Biafra) "the greatest underground zine I've ever seen [...] where the definition of punk rock was much wider" (quoted 219). Named for the Stooge's an- them, SEARCH AND DESTROY remains one of the most important, vibrant, and influential periodicals to emerge from punk. Includes features, interviews, photos, and like from all the major (and many minor) punk figures in both the UK and US: Sex Pistols, The Ramones, Pere Ubu, Crime, Dead Kennedys, Patti Smith, Screamers, Clash, Throbbing Gristle, Buzzcocks, Talking Heads, Devo, Weirdos, and Suicide. SEARCH AND DESTROY also served as a bridge between the punk scene and the literary/visual artists who both influenced and were influenced by punk: Ginsberg, Burroughs, Ballard, Acker, John Waters, David Lynch, Bruce Conner, Russ Meyer, and like. All issues first printings, with the first issue in its first state (with hand-stamped covers) and #10 and RE/SEARCH 1-3 not the later reprints. Though the zine technically ceased publication with issue #11, it quickly morphed into RE/SEARCH, a magazine which ran for three issues in an identical format and with nearly identical concerns before evolving into a glossy annual. An uncommonly complete run of this seminal punk zine. [Triggs 46].

      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." - Maßgebliche Ausgabe. Ohne Schutzumschläge. - Ca. die Hälfte aller Bände mit vereinzelten Bleistiftanstreichungen/-anmerkungen auf ganz vereinzelten Seiten. Einband und Schnitte von Band 2 etwas fleckig.

        A MORBID TASTE FOR BONES (Inscribed By the Author in 1982 for Shrewsbury Abbey Charity Appeal)

      New York: Morrow, 1977. Peters, Ellis [Edith Pargeter]. A MORBID TASTE FOR BONES. NY: Morrow, (1977). First Edition (so stated). A FINE copy in a FINE priced dust jacket. REMARKABLE PRESENTATION COPY. In 1982, Edith Pargeter signed this copy while sitting in the Abbey Church in Shrewsbury, home of her fictional historical detective Brother Cadfael. Her American publishers, Morrow, had heard of the appeal in aid of the church and sent 20 copies to the Abbey to be signed by her on March 24th, 1982. The inscription reads: "Abbey 900/Shrewsbury/Edith Pargeter/'Ellis Peters.'" This particular copy was presented to the Abbey's vicar, Ralph Lumley (bookplate, front paste-down) who can be seen in a clipping pasted to the front-free endpaper holding this very book. Here's a quote from the recipient's obituary: "Prebendary Ralph Lumley (1913-1996) was for more than a quarter of a century vicar of Shrewsbury Abbey, the setting for the popular historical novels by Ellis Peters (the nom de plume of Edith Pargeter). Knowing something of her earlier works, Lumley invited the author to give an evening of poetry and prose readings to mark the abbey's 900th anniversary in 1982. The ensuing friendship had an important influence on Pargeter. She has continued to do her own historical research, including that for the Brother Cadfael mysteries; but it was Lumley who helped Pargeter to realize and develop the religious nature of her books." It's hard to imagine a better Brother Cadfael presentation copy making this perhaps "THE" copy of the entire 21-book Brother Cadfael series.. Signed. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/Fine.

        Der Tod der Jungfrau Maria mit dem herbeigeilten Aposteln.

      - Feder in Braun, blau laviert, etwas rote Kreide, auf Bütten, mit bogenförmigem Abschluß. Ca. 15,6 x 28,6 cm. Mit restaurierten Fehlstellen im unteren Rand, oben links und rechts schräg beschnitten, insgesamt ewas stockfleckig.- Entwurf für eine Lünette. Gerade eine Handvoll von Zeichnungen von Domenico Pugliani sind bislang bekannt, etwa zwei Zeichnungen in der Casa Buonarotti (Ch. Thiem, Florentiner Zeichner des Frühbarock. Italienische Zeichner des Frühbarock. Italienische Forschungen 3. Folge, Band X. Herausgegeben vom Kunsthistorischen Institut Florenz. München 1977, pp. 368.369, tavv. 151-152) oder die Kompositionszeichnung „Der heilige Beatus da Orta heilt die Lahmen" in den Uffizien (R. Spinelli, Domenico Pugliani, in: Il Seicento Fiorentino. Arte a Firenze da Ferdinando I a Cosimo III. Disegno, Incisione/ Scultura/ Arti minori. Ausst.-Kat. Florenz, Palazzo Strozzi, 1986/87, No. 2.194). Diese Zeichnung entstand als vorbereitende Kompositionsstudie für das gleichnamige Altarblatt in der Kirche Ognissanti in Florenz (R. Spinelli, Domenico Pugliani e Lorenzo Lippi alla Compagnia della Madonna della Neve di Vaglia, in: Paragone 437, 1986, pp. 35-52). Die sorgfältige Durcharbeitung der Figuren in der zuletzt genannten Zeichnung findet sich ähnlich in unserer Zeichnung wieder. Typisch für Pugliani ist eine ausdrucksvolle Gestensprache, um die Seelenzustände der Figuren kenntlich zu machen.

Published in 300 numbered copies, these deluxe volumes contain 363 original samples of Japanese handmade papers manufactured in Japan from the 8th to the 20th centuries. Volume I includes samples from old books and manuscripts, arranged chronologically; volume II includes various types of papers manufactured in modern Japan, arranged by geographic region.

Arne Asplund (1903-93) invented the Defibrator pulping refiner and the defibrator-method (also called Asplund-method) for pulping wood chips in the 1930s. His invention resulted in the company AB Defibrator in Stockholm, which was merged with Sunds AB to form Sunds Defibrator in 1979. Asplund was rewarded the Gold medal of the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA) in 1947 for the invention and his further development of the defibrator-method for pulping wood and other rich fibre materials. He was later rewarded the Great gold medal from IVA in 1969 for his efforts on defibration technology. The annual Arne Asplund Mechanical Pulping Award was established in 1985 to commemorate Asplund's contributions to the pulp and paper industry. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
