        Three Forms in Space

      London 1981 - A lively early work 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. Ferry currently teaches printmaking at the Winchester School of Art and is also a curriculum advisor for a national print study center in Cambridge. In 2002, he was awarded an important grant from the Pollock-Krasner to fund the creation of new works for a future exhibition in New York. Mixed media. Number 2 from an edition of 4. Signed by the artist in pencil, lower right. Very good condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        1981 United States Chess Championship and Zonal Qualifier (Score Sheets)

      United States Chess Federation, South Bend 1981 - Completes set of fourteen games in Yasser Seirawan's hand of the games. All signed by his opponents except the games with Christiansen, Shamkovich, Kogan and Benjamin. The game with Benjamin is the carbon. The 28th U S Championship and Zonal Qualifier was a hard fought contest which ended with a tie for first place and two co-champions, Grandmasters Walter Browne and Yasser Seirawan. Since the top three finishers automatically qualify for the Zonal, a playoff between Larry Christiansen, Lubomir Kavalek and Sammy Reshevsky, who tied for third would have to be held to determine which one would join Seirawan and Browne. The event got under way on July 9 at the Americana Hotel in South Bend, Indiana. The 9th was the opening ceremonies and players’ meeting. The draw for pairing numbers allowed Seirawan a piece of luck, assuring him an extra White over the course of the tournament. In the first round the game were hard fought, and the only "grandmaster draw" coming from Browne. Browne decided to negotiate an early truce after consuming a great deal of time trying to crack Boris Kogan’s solid opening. Sergey Kudrin, a last minute replacement for John Grefe, made his debut in the tournament an exciting one, sacrificing a piece. Sammy Reshevsky grabbed the offer and sent his King on a long hike. After time control Kudrin admitted that his attack had failed and the first decisive game was recorded. John Fedorowicz methodically turned back Leonid Shamkovich’s attempt to squeeze an advantage from an English opening. Kavalek tested Lev Alburt’s favorite Alekhine’s Defense in the tensest struggle of the round and managed to convert an extra pair of pawns into a win. Christiansen chose a Caro-Kann against fellow Californian GM Jim Tarjan and a theoretical battle ensued. Christiansen neutralized Tarjan’s slight edge with a series of characteristically aggressive moves and won after Tarjan lost the thread of the game shortly before adjournment. Evans and Lein had the best game of the round, a beautiful strategically effort by the émigré GM who displayed originality and fine control to defeat defending co-champion Larry Evans. Seirawan and Byrne played a Queen’s Gambit Declined in which Robert Byrne’s hurry to simplify brought him unexpected difficulties; Seirawan reached a Bishop ending and exploited his opponent’s weak Kingside to win a pawn. Byrne resisted staunchly and managed to thwart all of White’s winning attempts. Joel Benjamin, the youngest entrant, replaced invitee Nick deFirmian, who chose to play in Europe, and his game with Jack Peters was the longest to the round. It was a graduation of sorts for Benjamin, who would have otherwise been defending his U S Junior title. At the end of the first round Reshevsky, Kavalek, Lein, Peters and Christiansen all had one point each. Round two saw only two draws, Lein and Kogan and Christiansen and Shamkovich. This vicious and exciting session resulted in wins for Reshevsky, Kudrin, Byrne, Seirawan, Alburt and Kavalek. In one of the crispest battles, Alburt’s violence paid dividends as he ran Tarjan’s King around the board, picking off most of his pawns in the process. At the end of this round Reshevsky and Kavalek each had two points. Round three had a shocking development. As Fedorowicz awaited the arrival of Evans, a search by the tournament staff disclosed that Evans had checked out of the hotel! Browne bemoaned the fact that he now had two more Blacks than Whites. While Lein and Byrne, Evans’ first two opponents, dropped for +1 to and equal score as a result of his departure (Evans’ score would have to be erased since he had completed less than half his games). Later in the day Assistant TD Larry Paxton explained that the evening of the second round Evans had notified him that he was feeling ill and this was the reason he had come late for his game with Byrne. The reduction in the number of aspirants to 15 was unfortunate for the championship. In this round, one of the most interesting gam [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Baden-Baden 1981 Chess Tournament (Score Sheets)

      Baden Baden 1981 - 13 hand written score sheets of tony Miles (complete set) Octavo (8 1/4 x 6") single sheets. In most cases the score sheets are signed by both Miles and his opponent. Not all of these games are listed in chessgames Miles and Ribli shared first place with scores of 9 1/2 out of thirteen. Korchnoi was a clear third with 8 1/2; followed by Gheorghiu, Hort, Ivkov and Unzicker, tied for fourth through seventh with scores of 8. Bastian who won against Korchnoi was a clear ninth with 7 1/2, followed by Honfi 5 1/2, Kestler 4 1/2, and Stajcic and Borik tied for twelfth and thirteenth with scores of 3. Roos in last place had scored 1 1/2. Miles produced his first GM norm by winning the Category VIII London tournament in October 1975 ahead of Timman, Adorjan and Sax. He scored his second and final norm in February 1976 in Dubna in the USSR scoring 9/15 in an event with amongst others Gipslis, Tseshkovsky, Suetin, Savon and Kholmov. Miles' achievement seemed to aid others in British chess as in the next five years Keene, Stean, Nunn, Mestel and Speelman were to follow him to the GM title. Miles was never a World Championship Candidate but he played four times in Interzonals in Riga 1979 scoring 9/17, Tunis 1985 around 50%, Zagreb 1987 6.5/16 and Manilla 1990 6.5/13 and he played once in the new format FIDE knockout event in 1999 when he was eliminated by Krasenkow in the second round after a speed playoff. 1980 saw Miles play tournaments in Las Palmas (+6=5 1st equal with Geller and Petrosian) and Vrbas (+4=6-1 ahead of Petrosian). It was also in this year that he beat reigning World Chess Champion Anatoly Karpov in the first round of the European Team Championships with black using an incredibly provocative opening (1.e4 a6?! 2. d4 b5) which he dubbed the Birmingham Defence after his home town. Its choice was probably more to do with a loss of faith in his opening repertoire against Karpov who administered many fearful drubbings to Miles. In 1981 Miles finished first equal in the Baden-Baden tournament with +6=7 with Ribli and ahead of Korchnoi. In the same year he took 2nd place in the Porz tournament behind Tal. 1982 saw him win his only British Chess Championship. He won the event which took place in Torquay with a score of 9/11 a point clear of Jon Speelman. For a player who was England's top player for a decade it seems strange that he only won the title once. Condition: Some light edge wear else a very nice set. [Attributes: First Edition; 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]
