"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. This is an Import title, was not distributed outside Germany, and is now highly collectible. As far as we know, this is the only copy available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. According to dealers who knew him, Rauschenberg basically stopped signing books in the 1990&#39;s. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> 238 plates. One of the greatest artists of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ROBERT RAUSCHENBERG TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).

        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]

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 .
