Title vignette b/w reproduction of illustration from Diderot's Encyclopedia showing the interior of a marbling shop. A collection of twenty-two contemporary hand-marbled papers (Antique, Bouquet, Cockerel papers, Compton papers, Drag, Dutch, Gloster, Italian, Nonpareil, Peacock, Shell, Snail, Spanish, Stone, Stormont, Superimposed) showing a variety of patterns and special techniques by Christopher Weimann. The publication announcement states "this is a book whose object is to demonstrate the enormous variety and evocative beauty of marbled papers, and their interpretation by craftsmen from different periods and cultures. Its aim is not to put forth a definitive historical survey or technical methodology, but rather to relate a series of contemporary hand-marbled papers to the accumulated heritage of patterns from the past." Chapters on technique, materials of marbling, and a bibliography on books for further reading is by Christopher Weimann and Susan Patron. Twenty-seven pages of text followed by twenty-six mounted pieces of actual marbled paper, including some originals from the seventeenth century, all with printed descriptions below the mounted paper, for example "11. Spanish. An original nineteenth century example. The wave pattern is obtained by gently agitating the paper as it is laid on the size. English marblers were famous for this pattern from the early 19th Century." Spine very slightly sunned, minor scuffing, soiling to boards. Overall very good condition.

        The Shining

      London New English Library 1977 First Issue (with gutter code R49 at page 447) of the first UK edition of King's third novel and the first to hit the New York Times bestseller list, marking the beginning of his long reign as the heavyweight of contemporary popular fiction. Thick 8vo: [8],447,[1]pp. Publisher's black paper-covered boards, spine stamped gilt; illustrated dust jacked, priced £4.95. About Fine (heel of spine bumped, pages tanned on margins, as usual) and probably unread, in Fine jacket. A beautiful copy and yet another example of the value to be found in the graphically superior designs of most UK editions of American authors's works. The U.S. (Doubleday) first edition had a print run of 25,000 copies. The UK edition's was much lower, judging from the print runs of Carrie and The Stand, which were each about 1000 copies. Jones & Newman (eds), Horror: 100 Best Books, 77. Pringle, Modern Fantasy: The Hundred Best Novels, 64."The Shining, still widely considered King's finest book, is a rather restrained, controlled novel which owes more to King's admiration of the type of allusive, psychological haunting found in Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House than the gore of the 1950s horror comics. Inspired by King's stay in a Colorado hotel that was closing for the season, the novel details the gradual breakdown of Jack Torrance, a frustrated writer and increasingly unstable family man who agrees to act as caretaker during the long winter. Accompanied by his long-suffering wife, Wendy, and young son, Danny (yet another of King's psychically gifted youngsters), recovering alcoholic Torrance soon falls under the destructive influence of not only his own demons but also those that inhabit the corridors of the Overlook Hotel. At its simplest, most affecting level the book is a story of marital and familial breakdown, of a man whose love for his wife and child is gradually eaten away by resentment and self-loathing . . ." (Literary Encyclopedia) Peter Straub (Jones & Newman) calls the novel a "masterwork, a bold product of an original vision, a novel of astonishing passion, urgency, tenderness, understanding, and invention. . . . In it's uniting of an almost bruising literary power, a deep sensitivity to individual experience, and its operatic conventions, it is a very significant work of art." N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves.

Wide decorative turn-ins with onlaid flowers and leaves in various colored morocco's, wood veneer liners and end-leaves, rear turn-in stamped "SA", top edge rough trimmed, others uncut. Housed in the original felt-lined blue cloth clamshell case, spine lettered in gilt. An absolutely fine copy of Susan Allix's second book and one of her most beautiful. Over the years we have seen a few copies of this book and it would appear that no two bindings are identical (DJB)A spectacular production, designed, printed, illustrated and bound by a single artist. Susan Allix - frequently cited as 'the greatest bookmaker of her generation' - often creates limited editions from her private press with original prints, letterpress printing and hand-binding. Since establishing her own press she has created a series of fifty works that have been exhibited internationally, featured in the collections of the National Art Library; the V&A; the British Library; The Hague; the Library of Congress; Harvard and the New York Public Library, among others.

Allix conceives each book visually. 'I am concerned with visual things so I see books as full of colour and form in a pictorial sense as well as through the images created in my mind by the words, and through the sculptural qualities a book possesses.' The real narrative of her books is the flow of color and image as they move throughout the piece."

It is also the fifth book of Wisdom in the Old Testament of the Christian Bible. The Song of Songs is read on the Sabbath during the Passover, marking the beginning of the grain harvest and commemorating the Exodus from Egypt.Scripturally, the Song of Songs is unique in its celebration of sexual love. It gives "the voices of two lovers, praising each other, yearning for each other, proffering invitations to enjoy". The two each desire the other and [Attributes: Signed Copy]
