He then discusses his work at hand: "I'm pleased with RIVER NOTES, the second book in the trilogy that began with DESERT NOTES. I wanted the link between the two books to be clear, but for them to be as different as the landscapes from which they derive in their structure and incident, and am satisfied that they are.

        Velazquez :the artist as a maker. With a catalogue raisonné of his extant works., By José López-Rey. [Werkverzeichnis.]

      Lausanne : Bibliothèque des Arts, 1979 - XIII, 541 S. Nummeriertes Exemplar Nr. 369/960. Umschlag beschädigt, mit Klebestreifen repariert, sonst gutes Exemplar. - As some reviewers of the earlier versions of this study perceptively noted, Velazquez is, in my view, one of the few painters whose work vitally responds to a creative intention. It follows that the meaning of any of his paintings ought to be sought precisely where it was achieved, in the painting itself. The tenets of tradition or of modernity, artistic theories, iconographical lore, and ways of life and thought current in Velazquez' time or with which he may have been acquainted were, of course, part of his world, and I have delved into them. They form the common background from which he distinctly starts as a maker of new art realities. Sprache: en Gewicht in Gramm: 2550 Originalleinen mit Schutzumschlag. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Lives of the Most Eminent Painters, Sculptors, and Architects

      New York - Harry N. Abrams, 1979 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. An attractive collection of biographies of eminent artists, translated from the original 1550 Italian by Giorgio Vasari. First edition thus. Translated by Gaston du C. de Vere, with an introduction by Kenneth Clark. The work has a consistent and notorious bias in favour of Florentines and tends to attribute to them all the developments in Renaissance art for example, the invention of engraving. Venetian art in particular (along with arts from other parts of Europe), is systematically ignored in the first edition. Between the first and second editions, Vasari visited Venice and while the second edition gave more attention to Venetian art (finally including Titian) it did so without achieving a neutral point of view. Vasari's biographies are interspersed with amusing gossip. Many of his anecdotes have the ring of truth, while others are inventions or generic fictions, such as the tale of young Giotto painting a fly on the surface of a painting by Cimabue that the older master repeatedly tried to brush away, a genre tale that echoes anecdotes told of the Greek painter Apelles. With a few exceptions, however, Vasari's aesthetic judgement was acute and unbiased. Lavishly illustrated with many colour and monochrome vignettes. Complete in three volumes. Condition: In half-morocco bindings with gilt tooling to the spines and front boards. Externally smart, with just a few marks. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean. Overall: FINE..

        The Journal of Lewis and Clark Expedition

      13 volumes including the Atlas volume of maps, Herbarium volume of plats and index. Small quarto (10 1/4" x 7") for all the volumes except volume 12 Herbarium Large Quarto (12 1/4" x 9 1/4") and the Atlas Folio (19 3/4" x 13 3/4"). Mixed printings.In 1979 a project to publish a completely re-edited version of the journals of the Lewis and Clark Expedition was started at the University of Nebraska. This new version was co-sponsored by the Center for Great Plains Studies and by the American Philosophical Society, and the Editor was Dr. Gary Moulton. For the next 20 years Dr. Moulton would be knee deep in journal entries, maps and scientific notes. The new addition would number 13 regular volumes, including an atlas of maps and Herbarium, the journals of Lewis, Clark, John Ordway, Charles Floyd, Patrick Gass, and Joseph Whitehouse, a volume of the expedition’s botanical specimens, plus a comprehensive index. Dr. Moulton had to decipher the hand written text of these journals from micro film or the original texts to get the most accurate reading possible. This could be a real challenge with poor penmanship, improper spelling and the age of the entries. (Captain Clark spelled the Indian tribe Sioux 27 different ways ). It was Dr. Moulton’s dedication to this project that produced most comprehensive works of the Lewis and Clark Expedition in print today.Condition:A near fine set in like jacket. Atlas volume issued without jacket.

        TIME TO HEAL [Manuscript]

      1979 - FORD, Gerald R. TIME TO HEAL. (New York): Harper & Row, (1979). THE ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT OF FORD'S MEMOIRS. 668 pages, with editorial/design marks in several hands. Also includes 12 pages of preliminary material-- including a two page publicity blurb. A few portions of the text have been cut and taped/stapled onto new pages. Much research reveals that none of this original manuscript appears to contain holographic markings of Gerald Ford. The substantive holographic changes are most likely in the hand of Trevor Armbrister. In Ford's Acknowledgements he states "Above all, A Time to Heal would never have come to fruition had it not been for the assistance of Trevor Armbrister .". The material in the Gerald Ford Library relevant to researching this question is restricted from public access. This is none-the-less the original manuscript of the memoirs of a former American president and accordingly of historical significance and unique.
