      New York City, NY: Harmony Books, 1980. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: Harmony Books, 1980. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 95 pages. Landmark collection of color photographs. One of the most beautiful photography books of the 20th century. The First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent printings of the 1980 Edition as well as the 1988 Reissued Facsimile Edition. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. A magnificent production by Irving Penn and Eugene Conner: Oversize-volume format. Cream linen cloth boards with black titles embossed on spine, as issued. Photographs, Introduction, and Afterword by Irving Penn. Printed on very thick glossy Kromekote stock paper by Acme Printing Company in the United States to absolutely the highest standards. The sumptuous and exquisite richness, clarity, and warmth of the plates must be seen to be believed. In pictorial DJ with black titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Irving Penn&#39;s legendary collection of flower photographs. They represent his aesthetic counter-response to the dominant Nature photography of the 20th century. Instead of the majestic and monumental images of Edward Weston and his most famous disciple, Ansel Adams (which are indeed beautiful) , Irving Penn went in the opposite direction and photographed flowers in extreme closeups, showing them in minute detail, that is to say, in all their beauty and sensuality, and revealing their hidden eroticism: The flower&#39;s bloom has always been a Romantic and poetic symbol for both the female organ and orgasm. As always with Irving Penn, discretion rules: The eroticism is unmistakable yet subtle, powerful yet restrained. A testament to Irving Penn&#39;s genius for nuance, color, and perfectionist&#39;s attention to detail, each photograph shows the varieties of the Poppy, Tulip, Lily, Peony, Orchid, Begonia, and of course, the Queen of all flowers, the Rose. Irving Penn died on October 7, 2009 at the age of 92, his place in photographic history permanent and secure. An absolute "must-have" title for Irving Penn collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed, placed, and dated in black pen on the half-title page by the photographer: "Irving Penn N. Y.1985". Penn encircled his signature for emphasis. This title is now very highly collectible. This is one of very few signed copies of the First Edition ("First Edition" and complete number line ending in 1 on the Copyright Page) still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. The original plates in this book are among the most collectible photographic prints, breaching the $100, 000 whenever one of them does appear on the market. This gem of a book shows them in their entirety, an accessible alternative that will give endless pleasure. Almost all other copies available online have major flaws. A rare copy thus. </b></i> 70 color plates. Irving Penn&#39;s "Moments Preserved" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER IRVING PENN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0517540746.

"All of the books are designed and illustrated by Robinson, however, it is a unique collaborative press. The finest craftsmen and the highest quality materials have been sought out to create works of the utmost integrity and beauty ... The Press endeavors to create beautiful yet scholarly renditions of contemporary and antiquarian texts. The books are produced as they might have been one hundred or more years ago, using handmade inks, marbled endpapers, hand-set type, and handsewn design bindings. The works are printed by Harold P. McGrath, a Master Printer for over 55 years who has worked with such artists as Leonard Baskin, Fritz Eichenberg, Clare Leighton, and Barry Moser.

        Codicé Xolotl

      Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM), Mexico City 1980 - 2 volumes. xi+164 pages with tables, foldout genealogy line, map, appendices and bibliography. 30 fold out reproductions of the codex in color and black and white. Folio (13 1/2" x 9") bound in beige cloth with black and gilt label to spine and black and gilt pictorial to cover housed in a slipcase. Introduction by Miguel Leon-Portilla. Second edition. he Codex Xolotl (also known as Codicé Xolotl) is a postconquest cartographic Aztec codex, thought to have originated before 1542. It is annotated in Nahuatl and details the preconquest history of the Valley of Mexico, and Texcoco in particular, from the arrival of the Chichimeca under the king Xolotl in the year 5 Flint (1224) to the Tepanec War in 1427. The codex describes Xolotl's and the Chichimeca's entry to the, at the time, unpopulated valley as peaceful. Although this picture is confirmed by the Novahispanic historian Fernando de Alva Cortés Ixtlilxochitl (1568 or 1580&#150;1648), there is other evidence that suggests that the area was inhabited by the Toltecs. Ixtlilxochitl, a direct descendant of Ixtlilxochitl I and Ixtlilxochitl II, based much of his writings on the documents which he most probably obtained from relatives in Texcoco or Teotihuacan. The codex was first brought to Europe in 1840 by the French scientist Joseph Marius Alexis Aubin, and is currently held by the Bibliothèque nationale de France in Paris. The manuscript consists of six amatl boards measuring 42 by 48 centimetres (17 in × 19 in), with ten pages and three fragments from one or more pages. While it is unknown who did the binding of the manuscript, it is cast like a European book back to back. The Codex Xolotl has been an important source in giving detailed information on material, social, political and cultural changes in the region during the period. It is one of the few still surviving cartographic histories from the Valley of Mexico and one of the earliest of its type. Condition: Some external wear to slip case else a very good set in slipcase.

      Bompiani, Milano 1980 - A Near Fine copy of the first edition, first printing (some of the common toning to the pages due to the type of paper used to produce the book, prior owner's neat gift presentation to the front free endpaper, some spotting to the rear board), in a virtually Fine dust jacket (quite light wear, short crease line to the rear flap's lower left corner), SIGNED BY UMBERTO ECO on the title page.

The dust jacket's rear flap shows the correct price of "L. 10.000 / IVA compresa". An historical murder mystery set in Italian monastery in the year 1327 and Eco's debut novel, the novel combines semiotics, biblical analysis, medieval studies, and literary theory. [Eco is a semiotician of the first order and a University Professor, essayist, philosopher, literary critic, and novelist.] In the story, a Franciscan friar, William of Baskerville, and his novice Adso of Melk -- who narrates the story, arrive at an Italian monastery to attend a theological disputation only to find the monastery disturbed by a recent suicide. A number of other monks then die under mysterious circumstances and William is asked to conduct an investigation. The novel provided the basis for the 1986 movie of the same name starring Sean Connery as William of Baskerville and Christian Slater as Adso of Melk. Signed copies of the work are quite scarce.
