        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'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'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'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 .

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.

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.

This surreal one-act play, about a woman who escapes from the Bastille during the French Revolution, is illustrated with four prints from color relief plates and printed on handmade paper. The text, in English and French, is accompanied by a record of the performance by the Bread and Puppet Theater, which took place in the woods of Northeastern Vermont. The liner notes are illustrated with eight photographs of the performance taken by Michael Boylen. Unbound, as issued, and housed in a pictorial-cloth dropback box with a design of bare trees. Very fine.
