A truly one-of-a-kind copy, offering an interesting glimpse into the background of the novel. The inscriptions, as far as can be deciphered, are as follows:

This copy is Inscribed on the dedication page by Dr. Lee to his star pupil Greg Louganis: "Greg, it is dedicated to such divers as you who must carry the burden of 'American Diving Supremacy' ---but whether you win or lose you will always be my diver 'Numero Uno' and my Number Two Son. Your Coach and #2 Big Daddy. Sammy." Dr. Lee was himself an Olympic diver, winning back-to-back gold medals in 1948 and 1952. Later he became a celebrated diving coach and worked with Greg Louganis from the time Louganis was in his early teens. When this book was published, the teenage Greg had already won an Olympic silver medal but was destined for greater glory in the 80s. Additionally, Louganis is the subject of several of the photos in this book as well. In later years, Greg Louganis became an outspoken and articulate advocate for gay rights and remains so to this day. A wonderful association between to gold metal winning Olympic divers.

      New York: Random House, 1979. First edition of the author's fourth novel and what many consider to be his finest. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by Cormac McCarthy on the half title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Suttree is the fourth of McCarthy's novels to be published, but he had started it well before his first, The Orchard Keeper, appeared in 1965 to great critical acclaim. The principle scene of Suttree is Knoxville, Tennessee in the early 1950's. The central figure, Cornelius Suttree, is a fisherman who lives in a dilapidated houseboat on the river. Estranged from his prominent family, he has withdrawn from the society they represent, choosing instead a different world inhabited by people who live precarious, desperate, often violent lives. "McCarthy is a writer to he read, to be admired, and quite honestly- envied" (Ralph Ellison).

        Profily 2 (Josef Ehm Signed Portfolio of 18 Silver Gelatin Original Prints)

      Prague: Panorama Publishers, 1979. 1st Edition . No Binding. Fine. This is a stunning portfolio of 18 original high quality silver gelatin prints by Josef Ehm entitled, \"Profily/1: z praci mistru ceskoslovenske fotografie (Masterworks of Czech Photography\" produced by Panorama Publishers, Prague in 1979. The collection features some of Ehms most important photographs highlighting his contributions to the New Objectivity movement. Ehm\'s work was the subject of an exhibition at Galerie Josefa Sudka in Prague in 2006 and the curator wrote, Transformations of Czech visual culture of the interwar period are often connected with activities of Jaromir Funke, Josef Sudek and Ladislav Sutnar. Of no less importance was their generational peer, co-worker and friend Josef Ehm (1909-1989). In the years 1934-1946 he was a teacher at the State School of Graphic Art in Prague, where in 1935 he participated in preparation of the legendary book Photography Sees Surface. His artistic production is renowned for a unique combination of avant-garde creative methods and technical brilliance. The photographs are printed on high grade paper that measure approximately 11.75 x 8 inches and are housed in a cardboard folio. Each photograph is numbered with a printed caption on the verso. Also included in the portfolio is a graphically illustrated title plate and a 27 page booklet with text and biographical notes by Peter Tausk (text in Czech, Russian, German, English, and French). The 18 silver gelatin prints are in FINE Condition. The cardboard portfolio cover is in Near Fine+ condition with minor creases to the extremities and faint discoloration to the front panel.

(Colophon: Venice "In Aedibus Aldi, et Andreae soceri" [= André d'Asola & sons], January 1521 [= 1522]). Narrow 4to in 8s (21 x 13 cm). With Aldus's anchor and dolphin publisher's device on the first and last pages. Set entirely in a single size of Aldine italic, with some headings, running heads, etc., set in its (upright) capitals. Gold-tooled red morocco (ca. 1700), each board with delicate centre-piece a petit fers , rebacked in gold-tooled red morocco.

      Adams Q-56; BMC STC Italian, p. 546; Lowry, The world of Aldus Manutius (1979), pp. 204, 233; Renouard, Alde, p. 93, no. 14; UCLA 208; USTC 851768. Second Aldine edition, describing itself as revised, but almost a page-for-page reprint of Aldus's 1515 edition, of the complete text of Quintilian's De oratoria, on the teaching of speaking and writing. Quintilian (Spain ca. 35 - 95 AD) gave up teaching and presenting pleas in 88 AD and spent his retirement writing his Institutiones Oratoriae, his only extant work. It covers not only the theory and practice of rhetoric, but also the foundational education and development of the orator himself. For Quintilian, the ideal orator or rhetorician was skilled in speaking and also a moral man. The Institutiones can therefore be described as a treatise on education, a manual of rhetoric, a reader's guide to the best authors and a handbook of the moral duties of the orator.After a brief revival in 12th century France, Humanists at the end of the 14th century renewed interest in Quintilian, especially after 1416, when Poggio found a complete manuscript in the monastery at St. Gall. The present book is beautifully printed and set in italic type, a style Aldus introduced in 1501. Andrea Navagero (1483-1527), one of the young poets from the Paduan circle, edited the text in close collaboration with Aldus himself. He also edited the Aldine Virgil, Cicero, Lucretius and Terence from 1514 to 1517, emerging as one of the ablest Latin editors of his time. As librarian of the Marciana in Venice, he also played a large role in the re-organization of its long-neglected manuscripts.With the armorial book-plate of Joseph Romilly and owner's name J. Boys on first 3 pages and endleaves, another owner's name on an end leaf partly erased: B...d...s 173[?]8. First four leaves slightly soiled, but still in very good condition. Binding skillfully restored, and re-backed.
