        The Right Stuff

      New York: Farrar, Straus, Giroux, 1979. First edition. Octavo, original cloth with titles to the spine in silver. 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.

        La Condition Postmoderne. Rapport sur le savoir.

      (Paris), Minuet, (1979). 8vo. Original wrappers. Very minor soiling/sunning to wrappers and light underlinings to the first two pages. Otherwise a very nice, clean, and fresh copy. 109, (3) pp. + The Minuet advertisement leaf, dated September 1979, for the work laid in loose. Author's presentation inscription for Roger Parmentier to half-title, signed "J-F Ly.".. First edition, presentation-copy for the famous theologian Roger Parmentier, of the groundbreaking work that introduced the term "post-modernism" and fundamentally altered the interpretation and course of (post-)modern philosophy. With this book, Lyotard set the agenda for the discussion of the postmodern, which began in the 1980'ies. Lyotard's main point is that modern society has become postmodern because man no longer believes that scientific and technological progress will lead to freedom, prosperity, and enlightenment for all. For postmodern man, doubt is the dominating factor. The term "postmodernism" was previously only used by art critics, but with "The Postmodern Condition", Lyotard introduced it in philosophy, with the following quotation: "Simplifying to the extreme, I define postmodern as incredulity towards metanarratives", altering our comprehension of this most recent period of philosophy. The influential French theologian and priest Roger Parmentier (1914-2008) was born in the region of Paris. Later he moved with his family to Constantine in Algeria where he became interested in Judaism. In 1941 he moved to Paris wher he studied theology at the Protestant faculty. He founded a group that famously fought against Nazism and antisemistism. After the liberation he took part in the creation of Meetings between Jews and Christians, paving the way for the Jewesh-Christian Friendship ("l'Amitié Judéo-Chrétienne"). He continued his religious-political path throughout his life, is known as an important 20th century-intellectual, and is famous for his many theological writings. "The term "postmodern" came into the philosophical lexicon with the publication of Jean-François Lyotard's "La Condition Postmoderne" in 1979 (English: "The Postmodern Condition: A Report on Knowledge", 1984), where he employs Wittgenstein's model of language games (see Wittgenstein 1953) and concepts taken from speech act theory to account for what he calls a transformation of the game rules for science, art, and literature since the end of the nineteenth century. He describes his text as a combination of two very different language games, that of the philosopher and that of the expert. Where the expert knows what he knows and what he doesn't know, the philosopher knows neither, but poses questions. In light of this ambiguity, Lyotard states that his portrayal of the state of knowledge "makes no claims to being original or even true," and that his hypotheses "should not be accorded predictive value in relation to reality, but strategic value in relation to the questions raised" (Lyotard 1984, 7). The book, then, is as much an experiment in the combination of language games as it is an objective "report."On Lyotard's account, the computer age has transformed knowledge into information, that is, coded messages within a system of transmission and communication. Analysis of this knowledge calls for a pragmatics of communication insofar as the phrasing of messages, their transmission and reception, must follow rules in order to be accepted by those who judge them. However, as Lyotard points out, the position of judge or legislator is also a position within a language game, and this raises the question of legitimation. As he insists, "there is a strict interlinkage between the kind of language called science and the kind called ethics and politics" (Lyotard 1984, 8), and this interlinkage constitutes the cultural perspective of the West. Science is therefore tightly interwoven with government and administration, especially in the information age, where enormous amounts of capital and large installations are needed for research."

        Translation of a Comparative Vocabulary of the Chinese, Corean, and Japanese Languages: To Which is Added The Thousand Character Classic The Chinese and Corean; The Whole Accompanied by Copious Indexes, of all the Chinese and English Words Occuring in the Work.

      Yushodo., Tokyo 1979 - Printed on Japanese style folded leaves, stab binding presented in a Japanese folding cloth covered case with toggle ties. New introduction booklet with red ribbon ties loosely inserted. A handsome work in excellent condition. Facsimile of a vocabulary adapted by Walter Henry Medhurst under the pseudonym Philo Sinensis was first published at the Parapattan Press in Batavia in 1835. The adaptation of a Korean classified vocabulary was written by Medhurst without the help of a Korean speaker. The vocabulary on which this publication was based was written for Koreans learning Japanese. Medhurst added romanizations of Japanese and Korean, deduced from Japanese and English lists. (Lust - Western Books on China). Accompanying this copy of the facsimile is a typescript note in English from Nitta Yuji, (founder of Yushodo Booksellers, Tokyo) explaining that he published this facsimile on the occasion of his 70th birthday "in order to share its value to everyone in the scholarly world. It is my hope that this small tribute would be of use." A very fitting contribution to the scholarly world indeed. Worldcat does not list this edition in an Australian library.

        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]
