        Tom Wesselmann

      Abbeville Press, New York 1980 - 1980 Stated First Edition. INSCRIBED by Wesselmann on the title page, in blue ink, "For Mary and Alan / with much fondness / Tom Wesselmann / December 1981." A NEAR FINE copy: clean, otherwise unmarked and firmly bound. Pages are fresh and fine. Hardcover of ivory buckram cloth over boards is titled in black on spine and front cover with color pictorial pastedown on front cover. Cover is clean and sharp. Slight rubbing and toning along edges of boards and spine but otherwise cover is fine - no bumps, tears or frays. Binding and hinges firm and intact; light salmon colored endpapers fine. The book is in a clear acetate jacket which is quite worn- toned along edges and spine, several tears and large chips. It has done well in protecting the book. A new acetate could replace this if the buyer desires. A momentous monograph on this important American artist - a leader of the 1960s Pop Art movement. It is actually autobiographic, as Slim Stealingworth was Wesselmann's pseudonym. Its 324 pages are packed with reproductions of Wesselmann's works: collages, early nude collages, bathtub collages, Great American Nudes, seascapes, smokers, mouths, faces, sculptures and several studies and drawings - as well as a few photographs of the artist and his studio. Many of the reproductions are in color. One of two plates on page 175 is pasted in, another plate is tipped onto the page. There are 2 fold-out pages with thumbnails of Wesselmann's fairly few prints and editions. An Exhibition List and Index are included. Laid into the book is the Abbeville Press invitation for a "meet the artist" party held on Dec. 8, 1981 at the 999 Bookshop in New York City. 12 x 13-1/4." The book weighs 7.5 lbs. Additional postage required for Priority or International mailing. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Faksimile - Die Eidgenössische Chronik des Wernher Schodoler. Um 1510 bis 1535 (2 Bde. Faksimile; 1 Kommentarband).

      Luzern, Faksimile-Vlg., 1980-83 - 2° (39.5 x 29.5 cm), Faksimilebde.: insgesamt 1048 Seiten mit 325 zum teil kolorierten Federzeichnungen; Kommentarbd.: 410 S.; , Faksimile: Bd. 1: Ganzleder mit Blindprägung, 2 Schliessen u. 10 Beschläge in OLwd.-Schuber; Bd. 2: Ganzleder mit Blindprägung, 2 Schliessen in OLwd.-Schuber; Kommentarband in OHLdr., Ldr. teilweise mit kleinen Flecken, sonst sehr schönes u tadelloses Exemplar. 102 von 980 arab. num. Exemplaren. Der 1. Band erzählt die Geschichte der Eidgenossenschaft bis zum Konzil von Konstanz (1415). Der Text ist in gotischer Kurrentschrift geschrieben. Zwar wurden die ursprünglich vorgesehenen Illustrationen, für die im Text der entsprechende Platz ausgespart ist, nie eingefügt, jedoch beginnen alle neuen Abschnitte mit farbigen Initialen und sind mit Rankenwerk geschmückt Dieser befindet sich in der Leopold-Sophien-Bibliothek in Ueberlingen u. wurde nicht faksimiliert, da es sich lediglich um einen Texband mit Initialen handelt. Der Text wurde jedoch transkripiert und ist im Kommentarbd. abgedruckt. Der 2. Band enthält hauptsächlich die Geschichte des Alten Zürichkrieges. Bis auf wenige selbstverfaßte Absätze stützt er sich vornehmlich auf Etterlin, den Berner Schilling und die Chronik der Stadt Zürich. Der Band ist mit 130 kolorierten Federzeichnungen sowie farbigen und goldenen Initialen geschmückt. Drei Zeichner haben ihn illustriert, von denen einer vermutlich Schodoler selbst war. Die Bilder dieses Bandes zeichnen sich durch eine überraschend atmosphärische Wirkung aus. Das mittelalterliche Weltbild der älteren Schweizer Bilderchroniken hat einem neuen Raum- und Lebensgefühl Platz gemacht. Der Künstler beobachtete scharf, und er vermochte seine Beobachtungen zu einer überzeugenden Bildkomposition zusammenzufassen. Dieser Teilband befindet sich in der Aargauischen Kantonsbibliothek. Der 3.Band beschreibt die Ereignisse aus dem Mühlhauserkrieg, dem Burgunderkrieg, dem Schwabenkrieg und den italienischen Feldzügen. Auch hier basiert Schodolers Werk auf der Berner Chronik des Diebold Schilling und auf Etterlin. Der dritte Band enthält 196 Federzeichnungen in Sepia, die von der Hand eines unbekannten Künstlers stammen. Dieser wächst in der Komposition über die früheren Chronikillustratoren hinaus. Die Landschaftsperspektive und dies ist neu hat Weite und Tiefe. Zudem spricht aus den Gebärden der dargestellten Menschen bereits das Körpergefühl der Renaissance. Die bildliche Aussage der Chronik des Wernher Schodoler gilt als charakteristisches Dokument der Zeit und als Zeugnis eines damals in so eigenartiger Weise verwirklichten Menschentypus, der Krieger und Künstler in sich vereinigte. Dieser befinde sich im Stadtarchiv Bremgarten.In dieser Edition sind jetzt alle Bände wieder vereinigt. Im Kommentarbd. die vollständige Edition des Chroniktextes, zu Leben und Werk von W. Schodoler, zur Sprache und handschriftl. Überlieferung, Register. Wernher Schodoler wurde 1490 in Bremgarten, der Stadt an der Reuss, geboren, wo seine Vorfahren bereits seit Jahrhunderten ansässig waren. Der Chronist selbst und seine Familie zählten zu den angesehensten Bürgern der Stadt. Sein Großvater und sein Vater hatten als Schultheißen dem städtischen Gemeinwesen vorgestanden. Im ersten Jahrzehnt des 15. Jahrhunderts war Schodoler als Kanzleigehilfe in Bern tätig, wo er Einblick sowohl in die Politik dieses führenden eidgenössischen Ortes als auch in die berühmten dort aufbewahrten Chroniken gewann. In seine Heimatstadt zurückgekehrt, stieg Schodoler schnell die Karriereleiter empor. Bis zu seinem tragischen Tod an der Pest 1541 hatte er die höchsten Ämter in Bremgarten inne. Bis heute ist nicht bekannt, was den vielbeschäftigten Stadtschreiber, der überdies an mehreren Kriegszügen teilgenommen hatte, dazu bewog, aus eigener Initiative eine umfangreiche Chronik zu schreiben. Es ist die einzige Chronik, die aus einem Untertanengebiet stammt. Schon deshalb ist sie von gehobener Bedeutung. 1200 gr. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The original signed silverprint is housed separately in portfolio made from oatmeal-colored boards. Portfolio lettered in gilt. A fine copy. Book and portfolio housed in publisher's original cardboard shipping box. "Within the two-dimensional plane of the photograph itself, Brett has an equally rare capacity to create rhythms and dynamics in what we know to be perfect stillness. It is done of course, through the relationship of one form to another-powerful to weak- within the picture. Only the full exploitation of the black-and-white spectrum can accomplish such movement or- when he has chosen- the Zen-like immobility of ponds, harbors, canals, and other landscapes. An intriguing quality in Brett's work is that the greater the distance his lens encompasses, the less movement there is. The closer the subject, the more intense the rhythmic relationship." (R.H. Cravens). HBS 66057. $5,000 [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Waiting for the Barbarians

      Secker and Warburg, London 1980 - Hardback - A fine copy of the true UK first edition, with un marked black boards with un faded gilt lettering to the spine. Very light pushing to the spine tip, but with sharp corners. Internally, the pages are very crisp and white with no owner names or inscriptions. No marks, and no signs of foxing. The book is possibly an unread copy, as there is still resistance to the boards when the book is opened. The dustwrapper is only in very good condition. The book is correctly priced at £5.95 net. There are no tears or chips to the wrapper, and no creasing. The spine has faded heavily to a white, as is nearly always encountered with this title. A bit of a shame, as the wrapper is a very nice example indeed, as is the book. Scans available on request. [Attributes: First Edition]

        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]

        Dubliners.

      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]
