        Two Holographic Poems. Metaphor: Like: = I [&] II

      1980. A two-part poem penned by Gregory Corso for his friend Fred Martin, Managing Editor at New Directions. Apocryphally at least, Corso "writ out" the poem for Martin at a bibulous evening at one of New York';s watering holes. In his time at New Directions, Martin worked with Corso, as well as Allen Ginsberg, Tennessee Williams, William Carlos Williams, and Lawrence Ferlinghetti. "Metaphor" is a variation on Corso';s poem "Piffle", published in 1980 -- the same year the poem was "writ out for Fred Martin." Shortly thereafter, following the assassination of John Lennon, the poem was reworked and retitled "For John Lennon." Corso';s practice seems to have been constantly to re-write, revise, and recycle his poems, perhaps to fit the occasion.

        FLATLAND: A Romance of Many Dimensions [With the Introduction “Flatland Revisited” by Ray Bradbury]

      San Francisco: Arion Press, 1980. LIMITED EDITION, one of only 275 numbered copies signed by Andrew Hoyem and Ray Bradbury. Printed on T.H. Saundrs hot-press finish, mould-made paper. Illustrated with fourteen line drawings and ten die-cuts by Andrew Hoyem, colours and gray backgrounds done by hand, in Univers, composed of Monotype then reset, initials in Gil Shadow. Folio, accordion style with aluminum covers impressed with black lettering, in a hinged aluminum container with metal clasp, prospectus laid-in. Fifty-six folded panels. A very fine copy, pristine and as mint, with just a bit of the completely inevitable evidence of movement where the aluminum covers slip into the aluminum case. NOW VERY SCARCE, A UNIQUELY DESIGNED AND PRINTED ENTRY FROM THE ARION PRESS. This was the seventh book produced by the press while under the direction of Andrew Hoyem. It was one of the press’ most commercially successful productions, and certainly one of its most aesthetically unusual. "The best introduction one can find into the manner of perceiving dimensions." - Isaac Asimov. Edwin Abbott Abbott (1838-1926) has been ranked as one of the leading scholars and theologians of the Victorian era. He received highest honors in mathematics, classics, and theology at St. John's College, Cambridge, and in 1862 began a brilliant career, during which he served as schoolmaster of some of England's outstanding schools. At the same time he distinguished himself as a scholar, and in 1889 he retired to his studies. One of his few works of fiction, Flatland, has given pleasure to thousands of readers over many generations Unless you're a mathematician, the chance of you reading a novel about geometry is probably near zero. But this work is a classic and would be considered a great read by most anyone. FLATLAND imagines a two-dimensional world inhabited by sentient geometric shapes who think their planar world is all there is. But one Flatlander, A. Square, discovers the existence of a third dimension and thus the limits of his world's assumptions about reality. And, in the spirit of GULLIVER’S TRAVELS, FLATLAND comes across as quite a humourous satire on society and the class distinctions of Victorian England. If you've ever wondered what a 4th dimension would look like, FLATLAND provides a lens through which you can imagine that extension out of our 3D world. Abbot accomplishes this by describing the eye-opening extension of his narrator's 2D world when visited by a 3D apparition, a "sphere". His framing of the foundational issues through the experiences of what you'd expect to be the most "two dimensional” character in fiction are really quite engaging. The story line is as interesting as the mathematics and the mathematics are beyond fascinating. Predating Einstein and the Quantum Theory by decades, FLATLAND may have helped to open the minds of people to the entirely new ways of viewing our reality. The changes which would soon be coming could hardly have been envisioned in Victorian England. The book is a classic of theoretical physics rendered for accessible for layman’s use and it is a classic of science fiction which lays the groundwork for countless such literary explorations in the 20th century and beyond.

"A protean genius who showed America that all of life could be open to art. Rauschenberg didn&#39;t give a fig for consistency or curating his reputation; his taste was always facile, omnivorous, and hit-or-miss, yet he had a big-ness of soul and a richness of temperament that recalled Walt Whitman" (Robert Hughes). "My fear is that something interesting will happen, and I&#39;ll miss it" (Robert Rauschenberg). A "must-have" title for Robert Rauschenberg collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in purple marker by Robert Rauschenberg.

        Codice Tudela

      Ediciones Cultura Hispanica, Madrid 1980 - 2 volumes in slipcase. Volume 1 Text: 315 pages with tables, figures and bibliography. Volume 2 accordion facsimile codex. Folio (12" x 9") bound in original cloth beige cloth with brown lettering to spine and cover. Prolog by Donald Robertson. Epilog by Wigberto Jimenez Moreno. Correlation of the codex by Ferdinand Anders and S Jeffrey K Wilkerson. First edition. Museo de America, Codice del. Codex Tudela. Costumbres, Fiestas, Enterramientos y diversas Formas de Proceder de los Inidos de la Nueva Espana. Museo de America, Madrid. Ritual-calendrical and ethnographic. Valley of Mexico c 1553(?). European paper. 119 leaves. The discovery of this major manuscript was announced at the 28th International Congress of Americanists in Paris in 1947 by Tudela. Part of its pictorial content is a version of material in other manuscripts of the Magliabecchiano Group. The first four leaves have six full-figure portraits of various Indian types (Mexican woman, Tarascan Indian, Yope Indian, etc) and a drawing of a maguey plant. Five or six missing leaves had similar drawings, to judge from copied captions in the Escorial copy of the text. The next four parts of the codex contain: (1) drawings and Spanish texts illustrative of the gods and ceremonies of the 18 months of the 365 day year; (2) drawings and texts of other ceremonies, gods, sacrifices and customs; (3) year symbols for a 52-year period; and (4) drawings of ritual symbols on blankets. The drawings of the four parts parallel those in Codex Magliabecchiano, but the Spanish texts in the two manuscripts are different and each manuscript has drawings not in the other. Five pages from the sections cognate with Codex Magliabecciano have been previously published. The final section of the codex contains: (1) a Spanish text describing the native calendar in terms of the 20-day periods subdivided into periods of 13 and 7 days and (2) drawings and Spanish texts depicting and describing the 260-day divinatory almanac. The highly detailed latter section contains almost unique data relating to a four-way division of the tonalpohualli (four direction trees), pairs of gods for 13-eay periods, as well as data on the 13 birds and the Nine Lords of the Night. The final page has a drawing of a spread deerskin with day signs attributed to different parts of the body. This drawing, which has been published, was at that time the only part of this section of the codex that had been published. Condition: Text and codex in fine condition. Slipcase good with title "Tudela" written on the spine, some tear to edges and tape repair to spine foot. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Wakefield: Simon Lawrence - printed at the Whittington Press. F. 1980. Limited Edition. Quarter brown buckram over marbled boards with gilt titles on spine, 16pp + 37 full page wood engravings printed on rectos only and with a wood engraved frontis by Leo Wyatt and an appreciation written by George Mackley, internally clean and bright, a fine copy in a slipcase which is bumped on a couple of corners. , Stanley Lawrence worked in the family business, which made woodblocks for wood engravers, from 1917 until 1986. He became the sole proprietor in 1941 and was an acknowledged expert on wood engraving materials and handmade papers. This book was conceived in 1979, when Stanley Lawrence&#39;s grandson, Simon, asked John Randle at the Whittington Press to print, in secrecy, a book of wood engravings by leading engravers to celebrate his grandfather&#39;s 80th birthday. The list of engravers who contributed their work is impressive and includes Simon Brett, Joan Hassall, Agnes Miller Parker, George Mackley and Reynolds Stone, to name just a few. A more significant consequence of the book was Simon Lawrence&#39;s decision to set up the Fleece Press, a decision that he associates with moment he first walked through the door at the Whittington Press. , tall 8vo 9" - 10" tall, Unpaginated pp .

Bruccoli--we believe it was a gift from the Johnson Reprint Company, who Bruccoli had ties to. Matthew Joseph Bruccoli (1931-2008) was the foremost F. Scott Fitzgerald scholar and bibliographer of his time. Additionally, he wrote on, and edited critical editions of Hemingway, Hammett, Cozzens, Thomas Wolfe, John O&#39;Hara, and Vladimir Nabokov. He studied bibliography under the tutelage of Fredson Bowers and worked with Jacob Blanck on the Bibliography of American Literature. He was responsible for the republication and rediscovery of dozens of forgotten American novels, and went on to be the editor and publisher of the 400+ volume Dictionary of Literary Biography, and was the chief editor of the University of Pittsburgh Press bibliography series.
