        Tertiary History of the Grand Canon with Atlas to Accompany the Monograph on the Tertiary History of the Grand Canon District (two volume set)

      Santa Barbara, CA: Peregrine Smith, Inc, 1977. 1/1500. Monograph and Atlas. 264pp. Quarto [30 cm] / Folio [51 cm] Both volumes bound in a 1/2 bonded brown leather over tan canvas boards. The Monograph volume, in fine condition, is slipcased (with mild soiling), and the Atlas volume is without a slipcase. The portfolio housing the plates is a bit worn at the edges, and has a 1 3/4" crack in the front joint at the head of the spine. Atlas: Twenty-three sheets including title-page and table of contents (sheet 1), 12 color maps, 10 color views. Complete with all plates, bright, and showing only very minor edge wear. The number line on the limitation page of the monograph is blank. Overall, the set is in very good condition. 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.

As usual, they got up to all sorts of fun and games!Little John thought it would be helpful to fill a wheel-barrow with cement, but Merlin the Magician - as you can see put his foot in it! And speaking of feet, one of Prince John's feet got in the way of a brick dropped by Robin Hood. (H'mm! I wonder if Robin did that on purpose!) Anyway, it made His Highness hopping mad. In fact his foot was so sore that he's been hopping ever since!King Louie of the Apes was up to his usual monkey tricks. "The King of the Swingers", he likes to call himself. Well, he certainly does a lot of swinging, doesn't he?There are seven hidden objects to find this week. They are two hammers, two trowels, two buckets and a spade."

        Hand Colored Flowers

      Printed by Mitchell Friedman, assisted by Jeremy Dine, New York 1977 - Etching, soft-ground etching, aquatint, drypoint, engraving, and electric tools on one plumber's copper plate. Printed in black with hand painting in blue, two shades of pink, yellow, violet, and green watercolour after editioning. State i/iii. Edition of 50, No. 48/50, signed and dated in pencil lower right corner. In pristine condition. Image size: 35 5/8 x 23 ½ inches. An early masterpiece by Jim Dine, one of America's greatest artists. Jim Dine is regarded as one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. In the late 1950's and early 1960's he gained public attention in New York with his Happenings and mixed media assemblages, but his real acclaim followed through his association with the Pop art movement. An innovative and versatile artist, Dine works in a multitude of mediums including painting, sculpture, photography, and printmaking. As a printmaker, he displays an uncommon love of the art form and a penchant for innovative printmaking techniques. He commonly combines etching, drypoint, mezzotint, lithography and woodcut to create complicated images, which resonate with a sense of drama and hidden meaning. He utilizes a myriad of unconventional hand and machine tools, which he uses on the plate and sometimes directly on the paper. As with this print, Dine often recycles his plates to create new or altered images that often display a ghost image of the first work. Dine's oeuvre focuses on isolated objects, which act as the stand-in of autobiography. Hearts, statues, robes, and flowers become metaphors for Dine's life experiences and his visual quest for the self. This important print is the first of three prints, Hand Colored Flowers (1977), Black and White Flowers (1977), and Red Ochre Flowers (1978), which Dine made from the same plate. In creating this print, Dine used a staggering array of different engraving techniques to create a heavily worked plate. In addition to soft-ground etching, hard-ground etching, aquatint, and drypoint, Dine used a mezzotint rocker as an engraving tool and to raise burr. The plate was cut down for the two later states and a die-grinder was used to change the shape of the vase and the details of the bouquets. According to D'Oench, the dense plate work and heavy inking is typical of the prints editioned with Mitchell and Friedman, Dine's primary American printer between 1975 and 1979. This haunting image is an important early print by Dine and a wonderful expression of his artistic genius. It is rarely seen on the market, making it a true collector's item.

      : , 1977. The Funny Fold of Disneyland in Playtime Fun Original hand-painted artwork for the double center page spread for the Walt Disney's Disney Time comic #2 February 5th 1977. Gouache on artist board. Image size: 9 5/8 x 16 5/8 inches. In fine condition. Together with a copy of Walt Disney's Disney Time comic #2. Matted, framed and glazed. "If you go to school, I expect you have a playtime every morning and one every afternoon. Well, so do our cheerful chums, the funny folk of Disneyland. At half-past ten every morning (I wonder if that's the same time as your playtime) they stop whatever they are doing and go prancing out to the play park. Some of them play football; some play blind man's buff; some play leapfrog and some practise skipping. Oh, all sorts of different games they play - and some pretty pickles they get into! They are a lively lot of scamps! Take Minnie Mouse, for instance. She usually tries to paint a picture... but you can see below the sort of thing that often happens to it! Then there is Goofy. Whenever there's a skipping rope around, it's almost always sure to end up around him! Still, they all have lots of fun, and that's the main thing about playtimes, isn't it? This week, our artist has drawn a mixture of hidden objects. See if you can find a boot, a ball, a cap, a hammer, a bell, a candle and a mile bottle"

        Hitler Moves East

      Mission, KS: Sheed, Andrews & McNeel, 1977. First edition. Very good or better in a very good unclipped dust jacket. Light edgewear, soiling, a closed tear to the upper rear jacket panel at the gutter. Previous owner's name on the title page (an annoyance that becomes less so: read on). Part of a stated limitation of 300 signed and numbered copies; this copy out of series, not numbered, and signed only by Trudeau; however, laid in is a postcard, signed by Leventhal, thanking the recipient for his help in the production of this book, addressed to a printing company that presumably printed and/or prepared the book for printing. Ignored or overlooked or both when first published, 'Hitler Moves East' has come to be seen as an important and influential title and has been republished twice, in 1989 and 2013. This, the original, is an extremely elusive title and this copy is particularly nice.
