        The Raven [Miniature, handwritten & illustrated manuscript, crafted & bound by Jiri Hadlac].

      Handwritten & bound miniature illustrated manuscript book; undated; ca. 1980's. Artist's name written on front paste down. - A hand-crafted miniature artist's book by Jiri Hadlac. Size of binding: 2 x 2 1/2", consists of 18 numbered pages of calligraphic manuscript, written in English, in several different colored inks & with similar drawings in outline of heads of ravens, by Hadlac. Paper is a special, multi-tinted paper, assembled accordion-style, with written words in various directions & drawings on one side. Text is sentences from Poe's "The Raven", beginning" "Once upon a midnight ." . Binding is in a dark stained calf leather with a semi-abstract, raised/sculpted form on front cover, which suggests a pen, head on a raven, etc. with various tools blindstamped in lines on both covers, letter P on back cover; text is bound to back cover, so the front cover drops down & away from textblock; cover edges, surface show "antiqued" look. Artist's name signed as calligraphy on front paste down: Hadlac. Fine condition. One of a small series of handwritten & entirely handmade/bound books based on Poe's Raven. This appears to be the smallest in size, to our knowledge. Rare item. "[.] The decisive breakthrough came with the Fifth Jubilee Trienale held in Prague, and organized by the Prague Museum of National Literature. The selection offered a rich and varied cross-section of new styles and unconventional approaches, including books written, illustrated, and bound by one artist, book-concepts, book-objects, books bound in morocco and decorated in classical style, books employing conventional techniques and materials, books of handmade paper or synthetic materials. Particularily outstanding binders included J. H. Kocman and Jiri Hadlac. Kocman, though by profession a veternary pharmacologist, is the creator of numerous livre d'auteur projects and concept-books embodying his conception of the total book; i.e., a book created in all respects (idea, material, actual execution) by a single artist. Jiri Hadlac, graphic artist and sculptor, had a different background, natural science having been his original field of specialization. Hadlac is an idiosyncratic interpreter of famous literary texts. A good example of his work is his calligraphic rendering of Poe's poem "The Raven" accompanied by his own illustrations, graphic layout, and design and finished with Hadlac's own handmade colored paper and binding." (The Contemporary Renaissance of Fine Bookbinding in Czechoslovakia, 1973-1985, by Emil Minar; in: Fine Print, Vol. 13, #1, January 1987; p. 24). Also see Jiri Hadlac's own article: "Artist of the Book", in: The New Bookbinder Journal of Designer Bookbinders Vol. 8, 1988; pp. 28-36; several pictures of other book-projects, featuring Poe's "Raven" are shown.

        Probe I.

      London 1980 - A lively early print by the progressive contemporary British artist David Ferry. A printmaker and photomontage specialist who has lectured and exhibited his works worldwide, David Ferry was born in Blackpool in 1957. After studying at the Blackpool College of Technology, he trained at the prestigious Camberwell School of Art and Crafts and the Slade School of Fine Art in London. His first solo exhibition was held at the 1984 International Contemporary Art Fair at London's Barbican Centre, and he made his first significant U.S. debut in 2000 as a visiting professor at Southampton College, New York with an exhibition entitled David Ferry from the window seat at the Avram Gallery. In addition to his many lithographs and photomontages, Ferry's oeuvre includes numerous artist books, some of which featured in the 1999 touring exhibition and catalogue Aspects of Our National Heritage. His abstract works frequently have a satirical edge, and the influence of his self-professed fascination with the surreal and the comical is particularly evident in those images representing his subjective interpretation of particular places and historical events. In 2002, he was awarded an important grant from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation. His work can be found at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Scottish Museum of Modern Art; the Art Institute, Chicago; the Art Museum of Estonia; and in many corporate and university collections. He has had recent solo exhibitions in Berlin, Brighton, London, New York, Seoul and Poznan. Lithograph. Number 3 from an edition of 4. Signed by the artist in pencil, lower right. Very good condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      1980 1980 - 1st edition. London: Grant Richards 1914. 278 pp. Publisher's cloth, binding faded, grubby and weakly waterstained on upper frontboard. A few pages weakly browning and 2 pages with a little handwritten notes. * Between 1905, when Joyce first sent a manuscript to a publisher, and 1914, when the book was finally published, Joyce submitted the book 18 times to a total of 15 publishers. The book's publishing history is a harrowing tale of persistence in the face of frustration. The London house of Grant Richards agreed to publish it in 1905. However, their printer refused to set one of the stories (Two Gallants), and Richards then began to press Joyce to remove a number of other passages which he claimed the printer also refused to set. Joyce protested, but eventually did agree to some of the requested changes. However, Richards eventually backed out of the deal. Joyce thereupon resubmitted the manuscript to other publishers, and about three years later (1909) he found a willing candidate in Maunsel and Roberts of Dublin. However, a similar controversy developed and Maunsel too eventually refused to publish, even threatening to sue Joyce for printing costs already incurred. Joyce offered to pay the printing costs himself if the sheets were turned over to him and he was allowed to complete the job elsewhere and distribute the book, but when Joyce arrived at the printer's they refused to surrender the sheets, and burned them the next day. Joyce managed to save one copy which he obtained "by ruse". He then returned to submitting the manuscript to other publishers, and in 1914 Grant Richards once again agreed to publish the book, using the page proofs saved from Maunsel as copy. The book was finally published in June 1914. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A People's History of the United States

      New York: Harper & Row, 1980. First edition, first printing of the historian's magnum opus. Thick Octavo. Signed by Howard Zinn on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a few small closed tears. The nicest example we have seen of this title, as most copies were read and re-read.The New York Times wrote that author "[p]rofessor Zinn writes with an enthusiasm rarely encountered in the leaden prose of academic history, and his text is studded with telling quotations from labor leaders, war resisters and fugitive slaves. There are vivid descriptions of events that are usually ignored, such as the great railroad strike of 1877 and the brutal suppression of the Philippine independence movement at the turn of this century. Professor Zinn's chapter on Vietnam-bringing to life once again the free-fire zones, secret bombings, massacres and cover-ups-should be required reading for a new generation of students now facing conscription." Howard Fast added this when he declared A People's History to be "[o]ne of the most important books I have ever read in a long life of reading...It's a wonderful, splendid book--a book that should be read by every American, student or otherwise, who wants to understand his country, its true history, and its hope for the future.

        Typed Letter, signed ("Robert Motherwell"), to Nancy McDonald of Spanish Refugee Aid Inc. of NY

      909 North Street, Greenwich, CT: 909 North Street, March 31, 1980 - Lengthy typed letter with excellent content concerning Motherwell's uneasy negotiation of Spanish politics and art. In 1980 the Jaun March Foundation and the Catalan bank La Caixa organized the first exhibition of Motherwell's work in Spain. His series of works titled Elegies for the Spanish Republic, begun in 1949 and continued until his death in 1991, totaled more than 170 works and would strongly link the artist with anti- Francosim and the lost Spanish Republic. However, as this letter demonstrates, in person, Motherwell maintained a professional, neutral stance, and seemed to have trouble engaging the Spanish in any political conversation. Reading, in part: "I didn't realize at the time of the New York Times announcement that, though the Juan March Foundation originated the show, in Barcelona it was under the auspices of the largest savings bank in Catalonia, 'la Caixa,' at a small museum they have acquired. If I understand correctly, it is either Spanish or certainly Catalonian law that such a bank must spend 50% of it's annual profits on culture - The Jaun March Foundation, as far as I can tell, is almost an exact equivalent of the J.S. Guggenheim Foundation here - They seem extremely wealthy, honorable in intent, and highly efficient - I mean an almost IBM-corporate efficiency, shattering every cliché about 'mañana' (what is ironic is that the fabulously wealthy Juan March was the financial backer of Franco, and yet in my show are major 'Elegies to the Spanish Republic.'). My impression, for what it's worth, is that there's a kind of understanding that anything scholarly or artistic can be done as long as one stays away from partisan politics. For instance, Barcelona insisted that I be present and treated me beautifully, while the Juan March people [from Madrid] had implied that it wasn't necessary to go to Barcelona, and immediately descended on the scene. As you know, there are tremendous Separatist movements in Spain -Being a fish swimming in foreign waters, I asked various people who know the scene what to do, and the concensus [sic] is that it is a Spanish labyrinth that is *their* problem - Naturally my own interest is in the artistic community, which seems both aware and touched by any outside support. But my experience in Barcelona was (as in Germany, for example) that political discourse is conspicuous by its absence in any general conversation - Everything I have said is impressions - I found the Spanish, unlike Latin Hispanics, extremely reserved and discrete, almost like old-time New England Yankees. What lies underneath I really don't know - I realize I am a bit vague because I really don't *know* anything. I have been going on the artist in me, which senses tensions, pride and formality, eagerness and extreme vulnerability, and since I am not by nature an activist, I have reacted with thorough professionalism instinctively, which seems to be precisely correct - Naturally I find it both strange and irresistable [sic] to show my Hispanic sympathies under such auspices, but there are unexpected occasions: for instance, I've given a small 'Elegy to the Spanish Republic' to the University of Salamance (the oldest one in Spain), and they wish to honor me with a ceremony, which I presume the central government is aware of, and I personally somewhat dread, not being an exhibitionist but an exhibitor - In Barcelona, several young artists told me that, after hearing me speak and reading an interview with me, they were determined to leave for New York. In short, my whole experience is basically as an individual with other individuals, as it is here at home, for that matter. (I have stuck with the Guggenheim Foundation because it is the only Foundation that gives exclusively to individuals, *not* institutions.)" 4to. 2 pp. typed on letterhead.
