        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. Josef Ehm has signed and dated the booklet on the title page.

        Institutionum oratorium libri XII diligentius recogniti M D XXII. Index capitum totius operis. Conversio dictionum Graecarum, quas ipse author in latinum non transtulit. (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.

A truly one-of-a-kind copy, offering an interesting glimpse into the background of the novel.

        Flash Gordon [Original Art]

      1979 Original art by Carlos Garzon for a double-page splash of a Flash Gordon comic book (unsigned, undated). On Strathmore heavy illustration paper, overall dimensions 19" x 14 1/2", image occupying most of that. Lightly layout-taped at corners to backing cardboard. A few layout marks and notations, else Fine. A two-page sequence scene showing Flash defeating a variety of rough looking gladiator-type alien foes in a desolate part of the planet Mongo, in a contest - The Tournament of Death - he was forced into by Ming. Carlos Garzon's name can be found all over DC, Dark Horse and Marvel comics, notably in Flash Gordon, Star Wars, Star Trek and Spiderman offerings. This double-page splash was drawn in 1979 as part of a Flash Gordon story that was never published. It would have been in one of the final issues of the series that began in 1966 with the now legendary "re-creation" of Alex Raymond's space hero by Al Williamson with King Comics Flash Gordon #1. Garzon had already been heavily influenced by Williamson. Scarce, particularly as an action double-panel from an unpublished issue. Art

        The Right Stuff

      New York: Farrar, Straus, Giroux, 1979.. New York: Farrar, Straus, Giroux, 1979. First edition. Octavo, original cloth with titles to the spine in silver. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket. Signed by Tom Wolfe and additionally signed by pilot Chuck Yeager and by John Glenn, one of the Mercury Seven. A very sharp copy, rare signed by Wolfe, Yeager and Glenn. Tom Wolfe began The Right Stuff at a time when it was unfashionable to contemplate American heroism. Nixon had left the White House in disgrace, the nation was reeling from the catastrophe of Vietnam, and in 1979--the year the book appeared--Americans were being held hostage by Iranian militants. Yet it was exactly the anachronistic courage of his subjects that captivated Wolfe. In his foreword, he notes that as late as 1970, almost one in four career Navy pilots died in accidents. "The Right Stuff," he explains, "became a story of why men were willing--willing?--delighted!--to take on such odds in this, an era literary people had long since characterized as the age of the anti-hero." "One of the most romantic and thrilling books ever written about men who put themselves in peril." (The Boston Globe). Listed by Modern Library as one of the top 100 nonfiction works of the twentieth century.
