        Three autograph letters signed in full to pianist and editor Alan Poulton

      Three intriguing letters, written between December 1980 and October 1981, in which Berkeley discusses the chronology of several of his compositions for a catalogue of Poulton's. 1) 1-1/4 pp. Small octavo. Dated Spetchley Park, Worcester, December 25, [19]80. In black ink. On white stationery with Berkeley's address and telephone number printed at head. "I feel sure that I would benefit greatly from a survey of my work to date such as you are doing for the composers you mention. I would like one of the possible contributors to be Peter Dickinson who has written the article on me in the New Grove. It might be as well to consult my publishers... J & W Chester... I should be glad to hear from you again." Creased at fold. 2) 1-1/3 pp. Quarto. Dated London, September 24, [19]81. In black ink. On blue stationery with Berkeley's address and telephone number printed at head. Berkeley apologizes for his belated response. He discusses his Aubade for Organ. He will meet with his publisher, Chester, to discuss the order of his compositions after op. 96 and other queries. "I expect that most of your queries have been answered by now but some I will now try to answer. Aubade for Organ. This is the first of three pieces, Op 72 number 1. The other movements being Aria, and the last, Toccata. 'There was neither grass nor corn' would, as you suppose, have been written in 1949." Creased at fold. 3) 1-1/2pp. Quarto. Dated London, October 15, [19]81. In black ink. On blue stationery with Berkeley's address and telephone number printed at head. Once again, Berkeley apologizes for his belated response, and answers several more of Poulton's queries. He will contact Chester for answers to others. He would be happy to meet Poulton in London or Worcester. He mentions the following compositions: Judica me, the first and second sonatas for Violin and Piano, and the Suite for Orchestra. "I know this sounds nonsensical, but I was dissatisfied with my first Violin & Piano Sonata and withdrew it. I then wrote another one ?- it was a considerable improvement, so I decided to make it my Opus 1 forgetting that it was called No.2 when published. I regard it as my first published work, so I think its best just to call it Op 1." Creased at folds. . "From the same generation as Walton and Tippett, [Berkeley] has little connection with national traditions represented by them or by Elgar and Vaughan Williams earlier. This is partly because of his French ancestry and temperament which made him closer to Fauré, and to Ravel and Poulenc who were both personal friends. Berkeley admired Mozart above all, then Chopin, Ravel and the neo-classical Stravinsky. His own idiom is built from an overt melodic expression, usually rooted in tonality and allied to a fastidious command of harmony and orchestral texture. Religious subjects in particular invariably gave rise to vocal music of unusual spiritual intensity, a mood also reflected in his instrumental slow movements... Though he was at his most distinctive in the 1940s and 50s, the achievement of his later extended language is considerable. His is an enduring, cultivated and imaginative voice in 20th-century British music." Peter Dickinson and Joan Redding in Grove online Alan Poulton is the compiler and editor of A Dictionary-Catalogue of Modern British Composers, among other music reference works.

        Shantaram

      Melbourne: Scribe. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. FIRST EDITION, SIGNED BY ROBERTS on title page and INSCRIBED: "May the journey always bring you wisdom in the struggles of the heart and courage in the heart of the struggle." "In 1980, while serving a 19-year sentence for robbery in Australia, Roberts escaped from prison and fled to India, spending a decade on the lam before he was recaptured and extradited. As Australia's most wanted man -- or so he describes himself in this fictionalized account of his years in Bombay -- Roberts was a larger-than-life figure in his native country long before 'Shantaram' made him a best-selling author" (Megan O'Grady, The New York Times). "Shantaram is a novel of the first order, a work of extraordinary art, a thing of exceptional beauty. If someone asked me what the book was about, I would have to say everything, every thing in the world. Gregory David Roberts does for Bombay what Lawrence Durrell did for Alexandria, what Melville did for the South Seas, and what Thoreau did for Walden Pond: He makes it an eternal player in the literature of the world" (Pat Conroy). Melbourne: Scribe Publications, 2003. Thick octavo, original red cloth, original dust jacket. A fine copy. Note: This rare Australian first edition precedes all other editions.

Octavo, 224 pp., navy boards with silver spine imprinting, Purple dustjacket with circle design (the jacket, with this first edition, is of a deeper purple shade than for the subsequent two hardcover versions). SUBSTANTIAL UNDERSCORING by a previous owner, on approximately half of the pages; jacket price has been clipped; offset to endpapers. Without the underlining, this would be a somewhat better than Very Good copy. This is the scarce uncorrected true first edition, with no corrections noted on the copyright page (see scan). Celebrated quantum physicist David Bohm's relatively concise offering of his notions regarding the implicate and explicate orders of reality - that the apparent specificness of qualities such as location, and the perceived separateness of things (whether particles or people), that being the explicate order, may in fact be only a semi-autonomous, and certainly temporary, reflection of a greater, underlying, undivided whole (the implicate order). Bohm's thinking in this regard is part of what has led to a variety of hypotheses about the universe, as perceived by us, being "holographic". L67

Facsimile reprint taken from the plates of the 1714 Lancisi first edition. Introduction states, "The anatomical copper-plates of the Italian doctor and anatomist Bartholomaeus Eustachius, though unpublished 150 years after their creation and forgotten by contemporary and succeeding generations alike, have been recognized since their sensational rediscovery and first publication by Lancisi in 1714 as a document of the greatest importance in the history of medicine. Eustachius subsequently achieved the reputation denied him during his lifetime as one of the significant founders of modern scientific anatomy - on a level with his famous predecessor Vesalius, upon whose pioneering work Eustachius elaborated in many details.".
