      ...with: Pavli Manvtii scholia, quibus & loci familiarium epistolarum difficiliores explicantur: & castigationum quae in ijsdem epistolis factae sunt, ratio redditur. Mit dem schönen Holzschnittsignet der Estiennes auf beiden Titeln, das Vorbild für jenes der Elzeviers war alle Seiten vor dem Binden sauber rot regliert. - (Einband etwas bestoßen, leicht berieben, kleine Flecken und wenige minimale Fehlstellen in der Oberfläche der Deckelbezüge. Innen sehr gut erhalten. Ein dekorativer Einband) Auf den Rückenfeldern des Einbands je ein goldgeprägtes Blütenornament. Die Deckel mit Randrahmen aus zwei schmalen blindgeprägten Linien und einer etwas breiteren goldgeprägten Linie sowie einem ebenfalls goldgeprägten rautenförmigen Mittelstück: auf Goldgrund Mauresken mit Blattwerk. Reste von Stehkantenvergoldung. Fein gepunzter Goldschnitt: auf dem Vorderschnitt entspringt einer Vase mauresk geformtes Blattwerk, das sich bis zu den Grenzen an Kopf und Fuß, die durch je ein Band mit Punkten gegeben sind, mittelachsensymmetrisch ausbreitet. Oberer und unterer Schnitt mit ähnlichen Blattwerkmustern. Grün/gelbe handgestochene Kapitale. Das Punzenmuster der Einbände gleicht jenem in Yves Devaux: "Dix siècles de reliure". 1977. p. 83 ein weiteres bei "Bibliographica" II (1896), p. 398 und Tafel XVIIc abgebildetes Vergleichstück verweist nach Paris als Bindeort.Ein schönes Exemplar dieser wohlgedruckten Ausgabe, deren der aldinischen von Garamond nachgeschnittene Kursiv hier erstmals verwandt wird: "Cette estimable édition est la première dans laquelle Robert Estienne ait fait usage de son bel italique, exécuté à l'imitation de celui d'Alde: Characteribus elegantissimis Italicos Aldi Manutij characteres proximè referentibus, dit-il de ce Cicéron dans plusieurs de ses Catalogues. Il y a joint les diverses scholies des éditions manutiennes sur lesquelles celle-ci est copié, sauf quelques rectifications ou changements dans les textes" (Renouard). Cf. Elizabeth Armstrong: Robert Estienne Royal Printer. Cambridge: UP, 1954, p. 49 & A.F. Johnson: Type Designs: Their History and Development. 1934, p. 130. Updike: Printing Types. I, pp. 234-5 & 290: "His Italic he based, he admits, on the Aldine italic, and on examination there is a certain similarity, although it is much freer in effect, owing, among other things, to its sloping capitals. Garamond is nearer to Aldus in his italic than he is to Jenson in his roman. (...) a delightful unconventionality of design - free and spirited, yet noble full of contrast and movement, yet with elegance and precision of line that marks them as French."Provenienzen: 1. Gestochenes Wappen-Exlibris auf dem vorderen Spiegel: "Ex Libris Jacobi Annibalis Claret Delatourette Equitis, Regi à consiliis in Supremâ Lugdunensi monetalium Judicum curiâ præsidis, capitalium rerum Prætoris Primarii. 1719", i.e. Jacques-Annibal Claret Fleurieu de La Tourrette (1692-1776), chevalier, baron d'Evreux, seigneur de La Tourette et Fleurieu. Ein hoher Richter der Stadt Lyon, Prévot des marchands de Lyon (1740-1745) und Président en la Cour des Monnaies er besaß eine der größten Bibliotheken Lyons, berühmt für ihre Einbände und seltenen Ausgaben.2. Auf dem hinteren festen Vorsatz ein weiteres gestochenes Wappen-Exlibris mit dem Motto: "NIL NISI VIRTUTE", i.e. Alexandre-Charles-Omer Rousselin de Corbeau, comte de Saint-Albin (1773-1847), "Bibliophile infatigable et publiciste savant, Saint-Albin avait assemblé environ 60.000 volumes tant imprimés que manuscrits, dont la plupart se distinguaient par la richesse de l'habillement, le choix des éditions et la rareté des exemplaires. Le catalogue qui suit ne contient que 3501 articles, mais c'était ce qu'il y avait de plus précieux en sa collection." Guigard II,192 cf. "Catalogue des livres et manuscrits composant la bibliothèque de feu M. le comte de Saint-Albin". Paris: J.-F. Délion, 1850.Contemporary French morocco gilt, five raised bands, edges gilt and gauffered to an arabesque design. Ruled in red throughout. Binding slightly rubbed in places internal condition very good. A fine copy in an impressive binding. "Cicero's astonishing energy can be seen in everything that he wrote, a body of work unparalleled among those that have come down to us from classical antiquity. The forensic speeches which made him the foremost lawyer of his time show him principally as an able advocate for the defence. His prosecution speeches, notably that against Verres, the corrupt governor of Sicily, are equally effective, and they rise to an unequalled height in the famous 'Philippics' - those onslaughts on Mark Antony, modelled on the speeches of Demosthenes against Philipp of Macedon, which Antony never forgave and which brought Cicero to his death. His political and philosophic works have been accused of lack of originality, to which Cicero would have been the first to confess: there were few philosophic work in Latin, except for the Epicurean work of Lucretius which Cicero, a Stoic, opposed. His moral treatises and dialogues are thus largely works of translation and adaption, but non the less influential for that." PMM 64. From the libraries of Jacques-Annibal Claret Fleurieu de La Tourrette (1692-1776), with his ex-libris on the upper paste-down, and Alexandre-Charles-Omer Rousselin de Corbeau, comte de Saint-Albin (1773-1847), with his ex-libris on the lower paste-down.Renouard 57,9 - Adams C1643 - BM STC 110 - Schweiger II,i,104 - Graesse II,156 - Ebert 4259. - RFM - Weitere Bilder auf Anfrage oder auf unserer Homepage.

        A Scanner Darkly (publisher's long galleys)

      New York: Ballantine Books / Del Rey, 1977. First Paperback edition. Unbound galleys. Very good +. Publisher's long galleys, unbound, measuring 8" x 22". 90pp (rectos only). Publisher's label affixed (upside down) to the first leaf. Overall in very good or better condition, with a large closed tear on the title leaf (not affecting any text), a stray ink mark on the same leaf, and some very minor chips and tears at the extremities of the rest of the pages. A nice, clean example. A Scanner Darkly first appeared in hardcover the same year, published by Doubleday. Dick had been frustrated with Doubleday, however, mostly over financial issues, and took a strong liking to his editor at Ballantine Books, Judy-Lynn Del Rey. Del Rey spent some real time with Dick between 1973 and 1977, going over the manuscript page by page. Contractual obligations stipulated that Doubleday would publish the hardcover, but the real work on polishing the novel (which had originally been set in the 1960s) was done by Dick and Del Rey in the intervening years between 1973 and 1977. Del Rey convinced Dick to change the setting to the 1990s (thus changing the setting from the past to the future), and by the time the book was done, Dick had this to say about Del Rey: "Judy-Lynn Del Rey is probably the greatest editor since Maxwell Perkins: she showed me how to create a character. I've been selling novels for twenty-two years, and she showed me how to develop a character." (LORD, Rc. Pink Beam: A Philip K. Dick Companion. Lulu. com (2007)). So, while these galleys are not specifically for the true first edition of the novel, they represent the importance of the close relationship that Dick shared with the legendary science fiction editor, Judy-Lynn Del Rey, and the long and arduous process that the two of them endured endured to complete this - perhaps Dick's most personal - novel.

        Ms. Brief mit eigenh. U.

      Tokyo, 29. IV. 1977. - ¾ S. 4to. Mit ms. Adresse (Aerogramm). An Susanna Schaup vom Scherz Verlag: "Heute komme ich mit einer Bitte zu Ihnen. Es handelt sich um Folgendes: Wie Sie wissen ist eine japanische Ausgabe meines Buches 'Zen-Medidation für Christen' erschienen, vor drei Jahren. Wie ich erst ganz kürzlich erfuhr, hat der japanische Verlag 'Shunjusha' die Abrechnung mit dem Scherz Verlag vernachlässigt, und hat nun der Scherz Verlag den Vertrag gekündigt. Die erste Auflage der japanischen Ausgabe, 2000 Stück[,] ist fast ausverkauft. Ich hatte gestern ein Gespräch mit dem Vertreter des Verlags. Er gestand, daß der Verlag seine Verpflichtung nicht erfüllt hat, fügte aber hinzu daß Krankheit des für diese Abteilung verantwortlichen Angestellten zum mindestens [!] ein schwerwiegender Grund war. Es wird nun eine Abrechnung in den nächsten Tagen an Scherz gehen mit der Bitte, die Kündigung zurückzunehmen. Mir liegt sehr daran, daß das Buch weiterhin gedruckt wird. Es ist für meine Arbeit hier sehr wichtig, gerade deswegen, weil dort die Beziehung zum Christentum besonders klargestellt wird [.]". - Im linken Rand gelocht (keine Textberührung).

        In Patagonia.

      1977 - London, Jonathan Cape, 1977. 8vo. Publisher's blue cloth, with illustrated dust wrapper, titled in gilt to spine, and endpapers illustrated in blue; pp. [iv], 204; black and white photographic illustrations; discolouration to spine of dust jacket, price clipped, otherwise a very good copy with minimal signs of wear or prior readership. First Edition. Chatwin's first book set the tone for much of his subsequent travel-writing. As the dust-wrapper affirms: "Writing with sympathy, humour and clarity of observation, the author charts not only the exotic contrasts of Patagonia's landscape, but also the strange life-histories of the eccentrics and exiles who live there. At once adventure story, historical investigation and romance, In Patagonia defies classification and captures the essence of an extraordinary and remote corner of the world".

        A collection of flyers, broadsides, handbills, booklets and other ephemera printed at the gay anarchist collective print-shop, Come!Unity Press

      New York, 1977. Folio and smaller. Fine with occasional minor paper flaws. Folio and smaller. Come!Unity Press was a gay anarchist collective print shop on East 17th Street in New York City in the 1970s. Founded with an initial measure of support from the Quaker Project on Community Conflict, from January 1972 the press operated as a 24-hour shared working/living space, and among the stated goals was "Survival by Sharing", to "unplug from profit", and to provide "equal access to the poor, printing movement alternatives to imperialism, war and rape." Powered by an A.B. Dick sheet-fed offset press, Come!Unity Press offered free access to the printing press as well as free materials for political and social activism, especially among the black, Puerto Rican, and gay and lesbian communities, as well as feminist organizations, theater groups, free schools, antiwar and international solidarity movements, the American Indian Movement, and individual artists and poets. There was a close connection between the press and WBAI-FM, the New York City free radio station, as well. The present collection represents a broad range of material printed on the press, much of it visually striking and all of it with the uncompromising spirit of radicalism which breathed through the activist groups which made use of the Come!Unity resources. Comprising: "A Gay Science Fiction Magazine," color printed poster, 14 x 8 1/2 inches, printed by the Gay Science Fiction Collective, no date, soliciting contributions of content and money to help begin the magazine, and announcing the first work discussion meeting. "When Freedom is Outlawed Only Outlaws Will Be Free" / "Where Were You in '72," two-sided color-printed illustrated poster printed, 17 x 11 inches, recto advertising a concert at Central Park, a March to Abolish the Police State, and a rally during the Democratic Convention, with sub-headline "Stop 1984 in 1976! Stop Cointelpro! Stop S-1!" and illustration of smiling man with American flags stuck in his cap holding a noose; verso with two columns of text about the 1972 Miami convention, printed in rainbow colors. "Impeach Nixon," color printed poster, 11 x 17 inches, by guerilla graphics, no date [ca. 1972], on green paper, verso with "break de chains" poster by the National Committee for the Defense of Joanne Chesimard [Assata Shakur] & Clark Squire. "Impeach Nixon," color printed poster, 11 x 17 inches, by guerilla graphics, no date [ca. 1972], printed over proof sheet of a booklet on an Environmental Bond Issue. Discarded proof sheets from one printing project would often be used for test printings of other projects, as is the case with this specimen. "Impeach the Presidency and the System - Not Just the Chief / Nobody for President - We Don't Need a King!" Printed broadside, 17 x 10.5 inches, on peach-colored paper, with illustration at top of a frieze of skulls wearing various rulers hats, by the Anarchs of New York, n.d.
