La idea de trabajar juntos ambos artistas surgió cuando el pintor le dijo al poeta que le gustaba tanto un verso suyo que lo consideraba como propio. El verso en cuestión es: «He caído tantas veces que el aire es mi maestro». El ejemplar que presentamos es el número 90 de una edición de 100, numerados y firmados por los autores. Las láminas están contenidas en una carpeta de cartón con cierres de cinta de algodón. Muy buen estado de conservación.

        The Book of Jonah. Together with Thirteen Wood Engravings by David Jones for The Book of Jonah.

      London: Clover Hill Editions, 1979. Quarto. 19pp. One of 300 copies of the ordinary edition, printed on J. Green mould-made paper by Will Carter at the Rampant Lions Press. The portfolio of loose engravings is one of sixty sets printed on Japon. Illustrated with thirteen wood engravings by David Jones, several of which frame the text. Jones was encouraged by Eric Gill to learn the craft of wood engraving, and although one can see the influence of Gill's work in these illustrations, they also reveal a sense of darkness and tumult that is distinctly Jones's own. The first edition was published by the Golden Cockerel Press in 1926; the new edition was printed using Jones's original blocks. The engravings in this portfolio are printed on the same paper as the extra suites in the deluxe and vellum copies of the 1979 reprint, and are untrimmed and therefore slightly larger than the prints included in those suites. The book is very fine in the publisher's binding of cloth-backed patterned paper-covered boards and a clear mylar dust wrapper. Engravings fine in a printed tan card folder. (Cleverdon 9).

        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....

      Tokyo: Yushodo. 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. This attractive facsimile is said by some authorities to have been adapted by Walter Henry Medhurst under the pseudonym Philo Sinensis. It was first published at the Parapattan Press in Batavia in 1835 [under the supervision of Walter Henry Medhurst]. This adaptation of a Korean classified vocabulary was apparently accomplished without the help of a Korean speaker. The publication from which it was developed was written for Koreans learning Japanese. The adaptation added romanizations of the Japanese and Korean, deduced from Japanese and English lists. (Lust - Western Books on China).Although standard bibliographies such as Lust 'Western Books on China Published up to 1850' state that Philo Sinensis was the pseudonym of Walter Henry Medhurst, "Philo Sinensis" is usually accepted as the pseudonym used by Carl Gutzlaff at the time and appears in publications such as the Chinese Repository. Its presence is therefore likely to indicate some level of involvement of Carl Gutzlaff. However, most authorities attribute the greater role in the adaptation to Walter Henry Medhurst. 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. (When referring to this item please quote stockid 142690)....

        Italiani anche questi

      Rizzoli, 1979. 8vo (cm. 21,8), 187 pp. con ritratti originali di Giorgio Soavi (da Giacometti), Franco Califano, Federico Fellini, Licio Gelli, Tommaso Padoa-Schioppa, Italo Svevo, Norberto Bobbio, Ilda Boccassini, Ferruccio Parri, Umberto Eco, Cesare Zavattini, Giuseppe Ungaretti, Antonio Gramsci, Vitaliano Brancati ed altro non identificato (eseguiti da L. Civerchia). Tela editoriale con sovrac. fig. (minime mancanze marginali). Il volume proviene dalla biblioteca del pittore romano Luigi Civerchia. I ritratti qui presenti mostrano l’idea di concepire il libro come un intelligente ed espressivo contenitore di memorie, le proprie innanzitutto, ma anche quelle dei diversi personaggi che egli ritrae, come intrecciandone i destini tra le pagine di uno stesso testo. Vale la pena notare che il nostro pittore ha scelto solo i libri come gallerie per i ritratti. Chi ha visitato qualche sua mostra, tra le tante tenutesi in Italia e all’estero, avrà infatti osservato che nei paesaggi o in altre composizioni le figure umane sono per lo più assenti, o comunque, hanno un ruolo del tutto secondario. E’ quindi una vera scoperta il Civerchia ritrattista, e lo è ancor più considerando la particolarità di esprimersi su di un mezzo singolare come sono le pagine di un libro. Luigi Civerchia è nato a Roma, nel popolare quartiere di Trastevere, nel 1928. Dopo una prima esperienza presso la bottega di uno scultore, continua il suo percorso nell’Atelier di Vittorio Grassi, momento fondante della sua formazione umana ed artistica. Si avvicina poi alla Scuola Romana seguendo con entusiasmo gli insegnamenti dei suoi Maestri ideali: Mafai, Pirandello e Quaglia.

        JACK SMITH / 'I WAS A MEKAS COLLABORATOR' (1979)

      1979 - Vintage original 13 x 13" (33 x 33 cm.) poster, USA, for a multimedia show created by the legendary Jack Smith (1932-1989), director of such underground films as Flaming Creatures, and belatedly recognized as one of the creators of performance art. After Flaming Creatures was premiered, Smith and others (including Jonas Mekas, who was in so many ways the godfather of the then-new American underground film movement) were jailed for obscenity, and a lengthy -- and miserable -- legal process ensued. Mekas believed that Smith's flamboyant wildness would be disastrously received in a courtroom, and tried to find an alternative resolution. For Mekas' trouble, he earned Smith's lifelong enmity. He started to refer to Mekas with various unpleasant nicknames, of which "Uncle Fishook" was one. This unusual photomontage poster for a multimedia slideshow by Smith is unsigned, but almost certainly this poster was designed by Smith himself, and represents one of the few surviving pieces of poster art by him.

        Codex Vaticanus 3738 (Cod Vat A, Cod Rios) der Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana

      Graz: Akademische Druck and Verlagasanstalt, 1979 [i-viii]+96 pages of the reproduction of the codex. Folio (13 3/4" x 10") bound in quarter brown leather with brown lettering to spine and cover over beige boards. Codices Selecti Volume LXV; Codices E Vaticanis Selecti Volumen XXVI. First edition of the publication.Codex Rios. Codex Vaticanus A. Codex Vaticanus 3738. Biblioteca Apostoica Vaticana, Rome. Ritual calendarical, historical and ethnographic. Valley of Mexico. c1566-89 on European paper with 101 leaves (48 x 29 cm). Codex Rios and Codex Telleriano-Remensis are currently believed to be copies of a common original, the lost Codex Hutzilopochtli. Codex Rios is believed to have been copied by a non-Indian artist in Italy and its long Italian texts to be based on a commentary by Friar Pedro de los Rios. The date 1566 occurs in the text as a reference to a past event; the paper appears not to have been made until 1569-70. The manuscript has seven major sections: (1) cosmogenic and mythological traditions with some emphasis on the four epochs and including notices about Quetzalcoatl and the Toltecs, (2) a 260-day divinatory almanac, (3) calendrical tables without drawings for the years 1558-1619, (4) an 18-month festival calendar with drawings of the gods of each period, (5) sacrificial and other customs including portraits of Indian types, (6) pictorial annals for the years 1195-62 beginning with the migration from Chicomoztoc and covering later events in the Valley of Mexico, and (7) year glyphs for the years 1556-62 without written or pictorial entries. Most of the codex has a long written commentary in Italian, but only three pages of the historical section are annotated. Details from four pages were published in Cartari (1615). These were obtained by the editor, Pignoria, from Octavio Malipiero and had formerly been owned by Cardinal Amulio, the Vatican librarian. A detail from the fifth page which appears in a later edition (1626) was obtained from Filippo Winghernio. Paso y Troncoso identifies these details as copied form the Codex Rios and not from Codex Telleriano-Remensis or from Codex Huitzilopochtli. Twelve pages were reproduced by Humboldt (1810). The first edition was by Kingsborough (1831-48) with paleography and English translation of the Italian text.

        Geschichtliche Grundbegriffe. 8 Bände in 9 Bänden. Historisches Lexikon zur politisch-sozialen Sprache in Deutschland.

      Stuttgart: Klett-Cotta, 1979 - Gute Exemplare, Band 2 ohne Schutzumschlag. - Führende Wissenschaftler vieler Fakultäten (u. a. Ernst-Wolfgang Böckenförde, Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht, Reinhart Koselleck, Christian Meier) untersuchen die zentralen Leitbegriffe der politisch-sozialen Welt: die tradierten vorrevolutionären Termini wie »Gesellschaft« und »Staat« oder die Neologismen wie »Kommunismus«, »Faschismus«oder »Antisemitismus« und schließlich die erst in und durch die Moderne zu Begriffen aufrückenden Vokabeln wie »Klasse«, »Bedürfnis«, »Fortschritt«und »Geschichte«. Dabei werden die weit über 100 ausgewählten Termini darauf befragt, wie sie sich im Laufe der Französischen und der Industriellen Revolution zu politisch-sozialen Leitbegriffen auskristallisieren und unser heutiges historisches Bewußtsein durchdringen konnten. Ja, man könnte so weit gehen, ohne diese Schlüsselbegriffe der politischen, wirtschaftlichen und gesellschaftlichen Organisation gebe es kein Geschichtsverständnis im modernen Sinn. Denn die leitende Prämisse der »Geschichtlichen Grundbegriffe« lautet: Geschichte schlägt sich in bestimmten Begriffen nieder und wird in ihnen überhaupt erst zur Geschichte. - Broschierte Ausgabe für 348 Euro lieferbar.

        A Bend in the River

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1979. First edition, first printing. Not Set. Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to upper board and spine gilt. With the dust jacket Cloth a trifle marked but a very good copy in the somewhat beaten-up dust jacket. A presentation copy with the author's typically terse presentation inscription to the title page, "V S. Naipaul for Al Murray". Naipaul recalls in A Turn in the South, "I was given the name of a writer who had been educated at Tuskegee, Al Murray. He was, or had been, a protégé of Ralph Ellison's, and he lived in New Yorkâ?¦He was a brown man, and older than I had thoughtâ?¦Al had just turned seventyâ?¦His sitting room was full of books and records. A moment's looking showed that the books were a serious collection of twentieth-century American writing in first or very early editions."Al Murray, a Tuskegee-educated writer on jazz and one of those interviewed in "A Turn in the South," would later say, "Naipaul is like a satellite in orbit. He's got an objectivity that no one else has, and he knows that the past is an albatross." Proper inscribed, literary association copies of Naipaul's works are distinctly uncommon.
