        A Time of Gifts, Between the Woods and the Water, The Broken Road

      London: John Murray, 1977 Book. Illus. by John Craxton, Ed Kluz. Near Fine. Hardcover. Signed by Author(s). 1st Edition. (Time of Gifts) [frontispiece] [8] pp 1-291 [1] (Woods and Water) [10] pp 11-248 (Broken Road) xxii, pp 1-362. The three volumes in first edition of Patrick Leigh Fermor's account of his epic walk to Constantinople, now seen as one of the great works of travel literature in the language and only completed last year with the publication of the third volume, The Broken Road. All three books are first editions in their jackets, the first volume with Patrick Leigh Fermor's very elusive errata slip laid down on the front pastedown. A Time of Gifts is near fine in blue publisher's boards, without ownership inscriptions; the jacket has been price clipped and has no tears and is very nearly fine. Between the Woods and the Water is fine in a near fine jacket which has not been price clipped. (Between the Woods and Water appeared in two issues, one without a front blank from which this example comes.) The Broken Road is mint in all respects and signed on the title page by the editors Colin Thubron and Artemis Cooper who recently became the author's biographer. It was Patrick Leigh Fermor's good fortune to set out on his great adventure in the early nineteen thirties before Nazism and the Second World War changed the Europe for ever, but to wait forty years before writing the first two volumes of his luminous narrative. His account of German beer cellars, of Prague under snow and love in Vienna, all occurring while the shadow of Nazism looms, bears comparison with Chatwin, Robert Byron and the best twentieth century writers in any genre.

        Fractals: Form, Chance, and Dimension.

      W. H. Freeman, San Francisco 1977 - First edition of the mathematician's groundbreaking work. Quarto. Inscribed and dated by Benoit Mandelbrot on the title page. Some foxing to the page edges, very good in an excellent dust jacket with a some light wear to the extremities. In 1975, Benoit Mandelbrot coined the term fractal to describe these structures and first published his ideas in 1975, and later translated, Fractals: Form, Chance and Dimension. According to mathematics scientist Stephen Wolfram, the book was a "breakthrough" for Mandelbrot, who until then would typically "apply fairly straightforward mathematics . to areas that had barely seen the light of serious mathematics before." Wolfram adds that as a result of this new research, he was no longer a "wandering scientist", and later called him "the father of fractals": Until Mandelbrot, most mathematicians believed the irregular shapes found in nature were too fragmented or amorphous to be described mathematically. However in the 1960s and 1970s, Mandelbrot developed his concept of fractal geometry, which helped bring order to complex problems in physics, biology, and even financial markets.

        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.

        Farrago rerum theologicarum uberrima . . .[Colophon:] Wittenberg, [Melchior Lotter the younger], [preliminary note dated:] [15]22. 4to. With the title in an elaborate woodcut border (17.5×12 cm) attributed to Lucas CRANACH the elder, with numerous figures and Philip Melanchthon's coat of arms. The book has spaces with guide letters, intended for manuscript initials, but they have not been filled in. Boards covered with plain paper (ca. 1800?).

      Panzer IX, 83; Pennink, Niet-Nederlandse drukken 952; VD 16, J 600; cf. Nijhoff & Kronenburg 2202 (1st ed.); for the woodcut border: Stickelberger-Folger (1977). Second or third edition, published in the same year as the extremely rare first edition, of the first collection of Wessel Gansfort's important and influential writings on theology. Gansfort (1419-1489) was one of the earliest theologians of the Low Countries to begin to embrace humanism and to call for reform in the Church. In the wake of Martin Luther and the Reformation, Protestants published this first collection of his writings, presenting him as one of their forerunners. In fact, Gansfort never advocated separating from the Catholic Church, believed in free will, did not accept justification by faith alone, and did not reject the sacraments in principle. But many of his views did anticipate those of the Protestants. In the sixteenth century Gansfort's writings were placed on the Index of prohibited books. He certainly stands as a leading figure who helped prepare the way for the Reformation.With a cancel stamp and a manuscript note on an endleaf referring to other editions. In good condition. Binding dirty and slightly worn.

All edges gilt. A tight, pristine copy. Housed in a quarter morocco drop-back clamshell box lined with black suede, slightly rubbed at corners.Bernard C. Middleton, M.B.E., F.S.A (b. 1924) is one of the most skilled craftsman of our time. His extraordinary career has now spanned some seventy years, as bookbinder, teacher and writer. The renowned Bernard C. Middleton Collection of Books on Bookbinding rests at the Melbert B. Cary, Jr. Graphic Arts Collection at Rochester Institute of Technology Library."For students of library history whose view of it includes historical bibliography, Dudin's L'art de rélieur-doreur de livres (Paris, 1772) is a book of considerable interest. Part of its importance derives from its inclusion in the monumental, unnumbered series of the Académie Royale des Sciences of Paris, Descriptions dea arts et mêtiers. The idea for the series- a detailed, scientifically objective, illustrated description of all the mechanical arts or crafts practiced in France - dates back to 1666" (Horn, Journal of Library History, Vol 14, No. 4, Fall 1979, p. 511)."The earliest technical works upon Bookbinding are not easily accessible, and are chiefly known on account of an allusion to them in a later work, entitled: L'Art du Relieur-doreur de Livres. This treatise was written by M. Dudin" (Home, The Binding of Books: An Essay in the History of Gold-Tooled Bindings, p. viii).

      Pergrine Smith, Santa Barbara, CA 1977 - Monograph. 264pp. Quarto [30 cm] Near fine. Complete with all plates. Both volumes bound in a 1/2 grained brown leather over tan canvas boards. Both the Monograph and the atlas in illustrated slipcases. Atlas. Twenty-three sheets including title-page and table of contents (sheet 1), 12 color maps, 10 color views. Folio [51 cm] This volume is complete. This atlas contains the three stunning panoramas, 'From Point Sublime in the Kaibab', by William H. Holmes. These three panoramas offer a 270 degree view of the Grand Canyon. This atlas also contains Thomas Moran's exquisite work, 'The Transept, Kaibab Division, Grand Cañon An Amphitheater of the Second Order.' These four plates have made this work one of the most sought after Western Americana titles.In 1875, Clarence Edward Dutton (1841-1912) joined the United States Geological Survey and is known for his extensive explorations of the Rocky Mountain region. His greatest accomplishment is his Tertiary History of the Grand Canon District of 1882. It is still considered the preeminent work on the Grand Canyon to date. The atlas is beautifully illustrated with maps and views engraved by Julius Bien. Sheet XVIII of the atlas, entitled "The Transept, Kaibab Division, Grand Canyon" is based on the monumental painting of the same title by artist Thomas Moran (1837-1926). Moran, more than any other artist is most closely associated with images of the Grand Canyon. The field artist for the Dutton geological exploration was William Henry Holmes (1846-1933). Holmes was most noted for his sense of realism and accurate draftsmanship. Holmes contributed many finely executed panoramic views of the Grand Canyon to the Atlas that are quite stunning. He exhibited at the National Academy of Design, The Art Institute of Chicago and The Brooklyn Art Club among others. Holmes later held positions as Curator at the University of Chicago (1898-1906) and was a former Director of the National Academy of Design (1920-1932). Farquhar states: "One of the greatest, if not the very greatest of all Grand Canyon books.The atlas, containing the superb panoramic views by William H. Holmes and a drawing by Thomas Moran, is a rich portfolio of art as well as a collection of maps and an exposition of geology." Four page Wallace Stegner introduction at front of monograph.
