Included with Schick's copy of Palm Sunday is Schick's pencil drawing for the dust jacket design of Vonnegut's autobiography, measuring 12 " x 8 1/2." Schick had captioned the sketch, "Unpublished Jacket Design / K - VG House on East 49th St," below his illustration of a series of brown stone apartments, replete with trees, iron fences, and fire escapes. Schick has drawn a figure of Vonnegut in the window of his house and, directly below, a horse, which is apparently waiting for the writer. A striking illustration which Delacorte decided not to use in favor of a photograph of Vonnegut taken by Jill Krementz. A wonderful piece of Vonnegut memorabilia [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Tower Section I.

      London 1981 - 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]

        Roadkills. Etching and 11 Woodengravings by Alan James Robinson.

      Cheloniidae, Easthampton, MA 1981 - Unique copy of this signed, limited edition, bound by Donald Glaister, one of 250 copies from a total edition of 300, all on handmade Japanese paper: 250 regular edition, 50 deluxe edition with an extra suite (deluxe edition long out-of-print). Page size: 9 inches x 12 inches; 42pp. In addition, this copy has been signed by all the authors although not called for in the colophon (the deluxe with the extra suite were to have all the authors' signatures).Bound by Donald Glaister: green morocco with onlays of painted Mylar, aluminum, sanded, painted and unpainted, red morocco; design extending across front and back panel, entirely recessed within half-inch rule extending around outer edges of binding; another recessed panel occurs another 3-1/2 inches in from the border on either side and 1- 1/4 inches down from top of border, with onlays of laminated Mylar, as well as red morocco that is almost a "roadkill" over which extend Mylar cutouts. These onlays are raised and the holes allow the images below to be viewed below. Endpapers of green painted cork; top edge graphite; housed in custom-made cloth clamshell box with printed gray label on spine, fine. An extraordinary binding from the great binder, Donald Glaister. In the artist's statement, Mr. Glaister tells us, "The composition of the binding addresses the other participant in the making of a roadkill: motor vehicles. The binding represents fragments of cars and trucks seemingly randomly thrown about the covers of the book. Over the top of these layers of junk lie pieces of cargo netting such as can be found across the beds of pick-up trucks. All of these pieces of unnatural detritus are scattered over a field of organic shapes that include a black abstract bird wing shape that extends across the panels. The bird wing is intact. Hooray for the good guys." Not exactly a pierced-screen binding, but certainly one which is as innovative as the first pierced screen was, this binding has several layers to it, raised and recessed, and not simply for effect because the binder is capable of executing such elegant, difficult work. Rather, the binding's surfaces and intent capture the intent of the book, allowing the viewer / reader to have another aesthetic experience while considering the subject, unfortunately all too common, that has provoked this collection of remarkable prose and poetry and never- undignified images of the sad results of human interaction with the natural world.The text is a collection of prose and poetry by John McPhee, Gillian Conoley, Gary Snyder, Madeline DeFrees, William Stafford, and Richard Eberhart. The illustrations include an etching and 11 wood engravings by Robinson. The text is handset in 18pt. Arrighi and Centaur letterpress. Certainly one of the best books of Alan James Robinson's Cheloniidae Press, this is a particularly desirable copy. See an Image. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Germaine De Coster was born in Paris in 1895 and studied at L'Ecole Nationale des Arts Décoratifs. She worked with Jules Chadel, assisting him with his engravings, and also designed jewellry, costumes and theatre sets. In 1931 she met Hélène Dumas (b.1896) and in 1935 they entered into partnership, with De Coster as the designer and Dumas as the binder. They had a workshop at 11 Avenue du Maine in Paris and in 1951 they won le grand prix de la Reliure Originale. Their collaboration was one of the most creative in the history of bookbinding, as demonstrated by the 270 bindings featured in this catalogue.

        THE LIFE WORK OF DARD HUNTER. A PROGRESSIVE ILLUSTRATED ASSEMBLAGE OF HIS WORKS AS ARTIST, CRAFTSMAN, AUTHOR, PAPERMAKER, AND PRINTER

      Mountain House Press, Chillicothe, Ohio 1981 - 445 x 311 mm (17 1/2 x 12 1/4"). Two volumes. Compiled by Dard Hunter II. Nos. 11 (volume I) and 96 (volume II), OF 100 COPIES of the regular edition, SIGNED BY DARD HUNTER II (there were an additional 50 "special edition" copies in a red morocco binding). Original quite attractive chestnut brown crushed half morocco over paper boards printed with a Roycroft pattern of pink roses and green leaves, flat spines with gilt titling, leather hinges, edges untrimmed. In the original sturdy linen clamshell boxes with tan morocco labels on spine. Volume I with 194 specimens and 65 black and white illustrations, many of these painstakingly hand-printed to resemble the paper and color from Hunter's original drawings; Volume II with 25 color and 75 black and white illustrations, 34 paper specimens, and 23 title page reproductions. Prospectus laid in at the front. In mint condition. This impressive two-volume work is the product of 13 years of labor by Dard Hunter II to record his father's extraordinary legacy. The senior Dard Hunter (1883-1966) explored the breadth of book production as few others have: he was an author, papermaker, type designer, graphic artist, and printer. He first experimented with papermaking at a mill in New York in 1909, and later in Ohio, his home state. Of the 18 books he wrote on papermaking technique, the eight he printed at his Mountain House Press, from 1922-50, stand as high points in 20th century American private press books. With the help of his son, he made and set the type for all of these books and printed them by hand on his own paper. He was the leading authority on papermaking, and his research on the subject took him many times around the globe, particularly into Asia, in order to document and collect samples of traditional papermaking techniques. His collection and research became the core of the Dard Hunter Paper museum, which opened in 1939. Equipment used in his papermaking, type founding, and printing has been accepted into the Smithsonian, while his collection of old and exotic papers resides in the Robert C. Williams Paper Museum at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta. Nos. 11 (volume I) and 96 (volume II), OF 100 COPIES of the regular edition, SIGNED BY DARD HUNTER II (there were an additional 50 "special edition" copies in a red morocco binding) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        ROBERT RAUSCHENBERG PHOTOGRAPHS - Rare Signed Copy of The First American Edition/First Printing - ONLY SIGNED COPY ONLINE

      New York City, NY: Pantheon Books, 1981 - 1st Printing. Signed. 140 pages. Published in 1981. Retrospective collection of photographs. One of the greatest photography books of the 20th century. The first appearance of the title in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with the softcover edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now very scarce. An austerely elegant production by Robert Rauschenberg and The Sonnabend Gallery: Oversize-volume format. Pale gray hard boards with black titles embossed on spine, as issued. Photographs and Introduction by Robert Rauschenberg. Preface by Pontus Hulten. Interview with the artist by Alain Sayag. List of Plates appended at the end. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Paris, France to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with black titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Originally published on the occasion of the exhibition, "Rauschenberg Photographe", held at the Musee National d'Art Moderne, Centre Georges Pompidou in 1981. Presents the great artist's photographic work in its first retrospective. One of the least well-known facts about Rauschenberg is that he began his career as a photographer. Furthermore, he makes no distinction between his photography and his painting. He has said that he brings the same pair of eyes to both. The photographs, like the paintings, are rigorous, acute, and sensuous. His celebrated method of appropriating "found" images and objects to capture the fabric, tempo, and "feel" of modern life is photographically-inspired and characterizes his large body of work. The idea of appropriation is not unique to Rauschenberg. It is a central tenet of Surrealism, and continues to be the latter Movement's enduring legacy. What makes Rauschenberg's work unique is the way he has "set in motion an interplay of shapes in which the human form is integrated to a rigorous yet flamboyant sense of design, pictures in which art and real life coincide" (Pontus Hulten). The photographs are presented in two parts: The first is the Series taken between 1945 and 1946, in such places as Tangiers, Rome, New York, and North Carolina. The second consists of photographs taken between 1979 and 1980, in Captiva Island (where he lived) as well as Boston, Atlantic City, Baltimore, and Charleston. "A protean genius who showed America that all of life could be open to art. Rauschenberg didn'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). "Mine is the need to be where it will always never be the same again. Photography is the most direct communication of non-violent contacts" (Robert Rauschenberg). An absolute "must-have" title for Robert Rauschenberg collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Robert Rauschenberg. The signature brilliantly matches his facsimile signature on the DJ cover. This title is now highly collectible. As far as we know, this is the only signed copy available online and is in fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. Unlike most copies available online, it is not remainder-marked and all of the internal pages are in pristine condition. According to dealers who knew him, Rauschenberg basically stopped signing books in the 1990's. Signed copies still available online are vintage, not recent, and very few. A rare signed copy thus. 122 duotone plates. One of the greatest artists of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ROBERT RAUSCHENBERG TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0394520548.
