        Dear Wolf and Gundi - 7/1/77

      - Letter with drawing on graph paper. Unique. 1977. 40 x 50 cm. "Dear Wolf and Gundi, sorry I did not speak to you Wolf, when I phoned the other day. Do you like the evolution of my new 'style' (long arrow pointing towards the drawing which takes up 5/6 of the page) this is a machine dating back to the old times before they discovered the 'cog'. You could call a 'medevil ballistic machine' if you wish, Wopko". This letter was sent to Wolf and GŸndi Weinek whilst Jensma was living in for a brief period in Natal at 37 The Grove, Mont Clair, Durban. Letters with drawings by Jensma in private hands are rare as most of his correspondence is housed today in the literary museum in Grahamstown. Jensma returned to Johannesburg in November 1985 never to travel again. He went missing and was last seen in 1993 after he disappeared at the Johannesburg General Hospital. No one knows what happened to him and his family are finally declaring him dead 23 years after his disappearance.

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. Susan Allix (born in England in 1943) "comes to the world of fine books by way of printmaking and paper-making. She began as a printmaker, having studied at the Royal College of Art in the 1960s. She won a Prix de Rome which gave her the opportunity to study and live for a time in Italy. She created her first hand-crafted book in 1973. After more than four decades and over fifty books, Allix continues to be true to her vision.Because she insists on creating the entire book - from letterpress to illustration to binding - her work has a certain recognizable aesthetic; a malleable signature that responds to the particular character of a piece, but is still unquestionably hers. 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." (www.annexgalleries.com)The Song of Songs, also known as the Song of Solomon, Canticles, or the Canticle of Canticles, is one of the "scrolls" (megillot) of the Writings (Ketuvim), the last section of the Tanakh or Hebrew Bible. 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]

        Le Chien Guingan et le Chat Calicot.

      Mill Valley, CA: Sunflower Press, 1977. (16)ff. From an edition of 250 copies illustrated in color by Marcie Collin and printed by Carol Cunningham, this copy is in a designer binding by Sonya Sheats. Evoking the fierce battle between the Gingham Dog and the Calico Cat, the artist envisioned "a tangle of lines tracing the tossing and tumbling" of the small beasts in the middle of the night," drawing sharp, angular, intersecting lines in red, blue, and gray enamel across the covers to map their struggle. This motion is set against a background of subtly textured and shaded natural dark parchment, which Sheats notes "has a soft, round, and whole presence." The binding structure is an homage to the influential German bookbinder Otto Dorfner, employing an open-joint style that he innovated. The spine is covered separately from the boards, which are then connected with four bands of pale blue water snakeskin. The ends of the bands are hidden under half-moon onlays of the same natural parchment. For contrast, the doublures are thin, bright white parchment. The book slides into a parchment-covered box etched with the title on one side in a modern, san-serif font. Elements of the design also hint at the influence of Brother Edgard Claes, her most important bookbinding mentor, including the sliding polycarbonate closure to the box which is painted with lustrous beige automotive paint. Sheats describes her work as part of the tradition of French fine bookbinding, mixing traditional techniques with modern materials. Extremely fine, protected in a blue microsuede pouch. (2 1/4 by 2 1/2; 57x64mm).

        The Shining

      New English Library 1977 - A UK First Edition, First Printing (New English Library 1977 with the code 'R49' present on page 447). The print run for the US First Edition was 25,000 and, given the low print runs of the UK editions of 'Carrie' and 'The Stand', which consisted of just 500 and 1000 copies respectively, the UK First Edition of 'The Shining' is likely to be considerably rarer than that of the US. Small bump to top of spine; edges toned and lightly foxed; a little off-setting to front endpaper and front board slightly bowed at the bottom. Original and unclipped dust jacket has some rubbing, chipping and wear to the top with a stain to the inside, and is now protected in a high-quality archival cover. A good copy of a contemporary classic. The book will be wrapped with care and shipped securely to ensure safe delivery. Please note: In order for the book to be shipped with full insurance, there will be an extra charge for international postage. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Story of Jane and Joan

      Perishable Press, Mt. Horeb 1977 - Small quarto. (28)ff. One of only twenty-five copies. A collection of twelve hand-colored etchings by John Wilde. The twelve images in sequence tell of the relationship between Jane, Joan, and the Great Dog. The primitive innocence of the two nude figures, who seem like Adam and Eve in their uninhabited world of barren rocks and isolated trees, is underlined by the simple, see-Spot-run-like titles for each image. The story ends with a macabre twist and an unexpected victory. This is the first of five collaborations between Walter Hamady of the Perishable Press and Wilde, both of whom worked in the art department of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The etchings were printed by Steve Weitz and bound in Bill Anthony paste-paper over boards with hidden leather corners and a blue leather spine. Housed in a matching drop-back box. Typical sunning to spine of box, which shows minor wear, else a fine copy of a scarce item. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        I travestiti

      Essedì Editrice, 1977. Testi e fotografie in bianco e nero di Lisetta Carmi. Una nota di Elvio Fachinelli. Inserto di 16 pagine di carta rosa sottile con riproduzione di foto e lettere dattiloscritte che i protagonisti del libro inviarono alla fotografa. Testi in italiano e inglese tradotti da Pietro Ferrari. 4to. pp. 164. Dedica e firma autografe della Carmi a pennarello, datata Milano 24-6-1977 (Inscription signed by the Artist, dated Milan 24-6-1977). Ottimo (Fine). . Prima edizione (First Edition). . ''tutto ciò che è maschile può essere anche femminile, e viceversa. Non esistono comportamenti obbligati, se non in una tradizione autoritaria che ci viene imposta sin dall?infanzia''. Così scriveva Lisetta Carmi negli anni Settanta, nell?introduzione al suo libro I travestiti. La fotografa genovese, pioniera del fotoreportage d?impegno civile italiano, realizzò non solo una delle prime indagini sociali sul fenomeno del travestitismo in Italia, ma un racconto profondamente coinvolgente di una minoranza al margine. Capitata per caso tra i travestiti durante una festa nel 1965, nell?antico quartiere ebraico di Genova dove vivevano ghettizzati, ce li restituisce in una dimensione privata, mentre sorridono alla macchina fotografica esibendosi senza finzioni in reggiseno e cotonature altissime, mentre si truccano, si allacciano il reggicalze, cucinano. Il libro faticò a trovare un editore e attirò la condanna della chiesa.
