        Winston S. Churchill, The Official Biography, Companion Volume V, Part 2, The Wilderness Years 1929 -1935

      William Heinemann Ltd., London 1981 - The Official Biography of Winston Churchill, initiated by Randolph Churchill but completed by Martin Gilbert, is an epic piece of scholarship about a singularly epic life, comprising eight mammoth main text volumes and - so far - seventeen accompanying document or "Companion" volumes. The eight main text volumes were published between 1966 and 1988. Publication of the Companion volumes continues today. The Companion volumes for Volume V of the Official Biography are the most keenly sought and most prohibitive to acquire of all Official Biography volumes. There was only a single printing in England and the Volume V Companions were published in smaller quantities than other Companion volumes - meaning that many Official Biography sets will forever do without. This is the second of the three Volume V Companions, a superlative copy of the British first edition, only printing. Condition is truly fine in a fine dust jacket. This is about as good as they come; the book appears unread. The red cloth binding is clean, tight, and square, showing virtually no wear and retaining a nicely rounded spine, sharp corners, and bright spine gilt. The contents are pristine. There is no sign of the looseness or gutter breaks that so often occur with this massive volume. There is no spotting and no previous ownership marks. The red topstain retains deep unfaded color. The fore and bottom edges are as clean and bright as the contents. The dust jacket is crisp, bright, and complete. There were two prices on the dust jacket flap - an original introductory price and then a higher price specified after 1 September 1981. Both prices are intact on this unclipped dust jacket. The spine print remains bright. We note no losses, tears, sunning, or soiling. Searching for flaws, we can report only a fractional hint of wrinkling at the bottom of the spine. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Please note that this large, heavy book may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A302e2.

        Paul Delvaux - Michel. Photographies Originales.

      Par l'auteur 1981 - - Par l'auteur, S.l. 1981, 22x22cm sur papier Ilford 30x40cm, 2 planches photographiques. - Diptyque de portraits photographiques originaux en noir et blanc réalisés et tirés par Marc Trivier. Les deux photographies, mises en regard, sont: - Un portrait photographique original de Paul Delvaux à Furne en 1981. - Un portrait photographique original de Michel à l'hôpital psychiatrique de Manage en 1984. Portrait d'artiste, d'anonyme, de fou, d'abattoir ou d'arbre : Marc Trivier a photographié chaque sujet avec la même intensité interrogative. Toutes réalisées dans le même format carré, élémentaire et clos, sans retouche ni recadrage, les photographies semblent moins mettre en scène un sujet - célèbre ou inconnu, élu ou déchu, vivant ou mort - qu'interroger une présence. «Ce qui m'intéressait, ce n'était pas de photographier simplement un corps ou un visage, mais cette situation particulière qui est quelqu'un en train de faire la photo de quelqu'un d'autre.» En confrontant les portraits d'artistes à leur correspondant altéré, Trivier dévêt l'oeuvre de ses effets et dévoile l'énigmatique nudité du corps photographique. "Dans sa cosmogonie, chaque chose, chaque être, végétal, animal ou humain, mérite le même respect. Car tous sont confrontés à la même loi d'airain : la solitude. " (Luc Desbenoit in Télérama, le 05/03/2011 à l'occasion de la rétrospective Marc Trivier à la Maison Européenne de la Photographie). Tirages argentiques non signés, comme la plupart des oeuvres de Trivier. Epreuves uniques tirées par l'artiste. Petite déchirure sur la marge supérieure du portrait de Delvaux sans atteinte au portrait. Rarissime diptyque d'un des grands photographes contemporains. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Houghton Mifflin, Boston 1981 - A review copy of his second novel, a hard-boiled thriller involving American expatriates in Mexico. Signed by the author. Partly because of the weak construction at the rear hinge, which tends to crack, this title has become harder to locate, particularly in fine condition, than his first book. This copy has just a hint of the start of a crack at the lower rear joint and is otherwise fine in a very near fine dust jacket with one tiny, closed edge tear at the heel.

It was a really gorgeous (as most of yours are) piece and it had a column of sounds running down the side. When I got up in the morning the shape of the poem was very clear in my mind and I began typing what I saw. Here 'tis." McClure goes on to relate a similar dream about a broadside poem by Philip Whalen. [With] One page Typed Manuscript Signed ("Michael McClure") of the poem in question. Old mailing folds, else fine.

        Chinese Porcelain Collections in the Near East: three volumes in case Topkapi and Ardebil

      Hong Kong University, 1981 - Three quarto hardcover volumes, frontispiece, xi, 1000pp., 84 colour and 424 monochrome plates, maps, bibliography, index. Black cloth boards with white titling. All in fine condition encased in a slightly scuffed, blue clip-up cloth covered bookcase with cream peg fasteners and white decoration and lettering. The introductory volume together with that on the collections of Chinese porcelain from the Topkapi Sarayi in Istanbul and the Ardebil Shrine in Tehran were first published in 1972 in a three volume Japanese limited edition, now out of print. Volume one broadly outlines the history of porcelain in China, the trade routes, the foreign influence on blue and white porcelain along with its design and stylistic characteristics. Volumes two and three give details of individual pieces and wares in the Topkapi and Ardebil collections (many of these are presented as tipped-in images). From the eighth century onwards Chinese porcelain has been exported along overland routes across Iran, Turkey, the Silk Road and even into Russia as well as the sea routes both in Southeast Asia and from ports in Africa to the Black Sea. These wares were valued as symbols of authority and status and collected by appreciative users. The collections at Topkapi and Ardebil date back to the mid fourteenth century. The background, origins, stylistic techniques and decoration is analysed by the author. The Yuan dynasty saw the rapid development in China of the Persian techniques of blue and white decoration, but applied to existing Chinese designs. The cobalt pigment often referred to in Chinese sources as Mohammedan blue had the advantage that it could be applied with comparative ease and this made possible the use of the high firing temperatures above 1300 degrees C required to produce fine porcelain without loss of colour. The demands of Arab traders for particular styles of pottery were of great influence at this time along with the export of cobalt from the Middle East and Africa. The author discusses in detail the design characteristics of the porcelain both in terms of dating as well as artistic expression. Chinese blue and white porcelain was a medium for the expression of artistic, social, historical and religious beliefs as well as displaying foreign influences and elements from its early Buddhist, Islamic, Persian and Arab associations such as the lotus, Arabic script and abstract designs. Well organised and brilliantly researched.

        Robert Crumb. Sketchbooks 1982-2011 (volumes 7 -12) (Signed) (Limited Edition)

      Taschen, 2012. Hard Cover. New. Robert Crumb. SIX BOOK BOXED SET limited to just 1,000 copies worldwide with signed color art print. First Edition. This six-book boxed set is the first collection of Robert Crumb sketches to be printed from the original art since the hard-bound, slipcased, seven volume series issued by the German publisher Zweitausendeins between 1981 and 1997. Unlike the Zweitausendeins edition, which included every doodle ever made by the preeminent underground artist, this best-of edition has been personally edited by the notoriously picky artist to include only what he considers his finest work, including hundreds of late period drawings not published in previous sketchbook collections. Robert Crumb requested that the books representing the second half of his career be published first due to fan demand for new Crumb material (Volume 1 covers the period 1982-2011, and Volume 2 covers the period 1964-1981). In the last 20 years Crumb's artistic output has slowed considerably, making new works more rare and highly prized. This collection of over 600 unseen drawings created between 1996 and 2011 makes this a must-have collectible for every Crumb fan. The slipcased set is made with loving attention to detail in a size and format selected by the artist. Each book in the boxed set contains 224 pages, for a total of 1,344 pages of prime Crumb. The set includes a hand-written introduction, and marbleized page edges from a design created by the artist. Each set of this 1,000-copy limited edition also includes a signed color art print of a Crumb original. 1344 pages. Full Colour illustrations. 8" x 11" (203mm x 279mm).
