        [Autograph Manuscript, Inscribed and Signed, of:] DEEDEE BYRDE CALLING WEE JENNIE WRENNE

      [Np: The Author], 1981. Manuscript poem, in ink, on two conjugate folio leaves of handmade paper (26.5 x 19.5), enclosed in slightly larger folder with manuscript title caption on recto of upper leaf, and inscription on recto of lower leaf. Fine. A superb autograph manuscript of this poem in ten quatrains, in ink, in the poet's characteristic hand, with one significant revision. In its published form, "D.D. Byrde Callyng Jennie Wrenn," the poem is dedicated to the poet's wife, "K. T. Browne." On the recto of the lower cover leaf, the poet has inscribed: "For Kathy with love, De 8/14/81." The poem was published, in substantially altered form, first in 1984, as a limited chapbook by William Ewart, and then collected in SELECTED POEMS 1957-1987. In addition to a number of variations in individual word choice, this quite early manuscript evidences little, if any, of the idiosyncratic and archaic spelling that characterizes the final published form of the text.

        Racconti romani

      Bompiani, Milano 1981 - Legatura editoriale in tela con titolo e fregi oro al ds. Sovrac. fig. Dedica autografa dell Autore datata 1988. All interno 14 ritratti di Alberto Moravia eseguiti da Luigi Civerchia. Il volume proviene, infatti, dalla biblioteca del pittore romano Civerchia. I ritratti qui presenti mostrano l idea di concepire il libro come un intelligente ed espressivo contenitore di memorie, le proprie innanzitutto, ma anche quelle dei diversi personaggi che egli ritrae, come intrecciandone i destini tra le pagine di uno stesso testo. Vale la pena notare che il nostro pittore ha scelto solo i libri come gallerie per i ritratti. Chi ha visitato qualche sua mostra, tra le tante tenutesi in Italia e all estero, avrà infatti osservato che nei paesaggi o in altre composizioni le figure umane sono per lo più assenti, o comunque, hanno un ruolo del tutto secondario. E quindi una vera scoperta il Civerchia ritrattista, e lo è ancor più considerando la particolarità di esprimersi su di un mezzo singolare come sono le pagine di un libro. Luigi Civerchia è nato a Roma, nel popolare quartiere di Trastevere, nel 1928. Dopo una prima esperienza presso la bottega di uno scultore, continua il suo percorso nell Atelier di Vittorio Grassi, momento fondante della sua formazione umana ed artistica. Si avvicina poi alla Scuola Romana seguendo con entusiasmo gli insegnamenti dei suoi Maestri ideali: Mafai, Pirandello e Quaglia. 8vo (cm. 20,5), 385 pp. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

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

      South Bend: United States Chess Federation, 1981. Complete set of original octavo (8 1/2" x 5 1/2") score sheets in Kavalek's hand. Signed by all his opponents except Christiansen, Reshivsky and Shamkovich.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 â€

        President and Mrs. Ronald Reagan spectacular porcelain pill box - owned and used in the White House and their Bel Air Mansion, decoratively adorned with "1981," the first year of Reagan's presidency

      n.p., n.d.. 2" x 1.5" x 1". "Designer porcelain enameled pillbox. Manufacturer is obscured by the green tag applied by Nancy Reagan to the bottom which was the method used to identify the piece as having been used in the White House. 2"" x 1.5"" x 1"". Interior of the top lid states ""A Year to Remember"", with the top of the lid showing a floral basket design, and the date ""1981"" which was the first year of Reagan's presidency. Additional Christie's lot sticker and University Archives authentication tag hand numbered and signed by John Reznikoff. Fine condition.A lovely, very personal, and historically important piece, owned by the Reagans and on spectacular display both in the White House and in their home in Bel Air. Nancy was very particular with creating a perfect and well decorated environment for the White House, and home for themselves. Her flair for decorating, entertaining and hosting transformed the aura of style and sophistication to the White House. “She felt the White House should exemplify the best,” said Mark Weinberg, who worked on Ronald Reagan’s campaigns, in the White House Press Office. The Reagans were also ardent collectors, and Nancy loved to display their collections. The love for lavish pill boxes was apparent as they had them prominently arranged on a table as shown in the image below . This pill box is extraordinary in that it celebrates the first year of Reagan's presidency . The Reagan auction saw record prices for a celebrity including about $200,000 for cowboy boots and $100,000 for a sheet of Presidential doodles. A group of pill boxes was purchased with the hopes that individual items could be offered, so as to share something intimate, private and Presidential with clients who might not wish to own a large group. The Catalog description at Christie's left out the information about the historic inscriptions. Certainly Among the first and most lasting gifts the President and First Lady received."

        De Kafka à Kafka

      First Edition published only in paperback and for which he was not fired large paper one of the review copies. Touching and valuable autograph dedication signed by the author to his sister Marguerite glued on a card on the first guard: "Dear Marg, this book is not a book but if you put it in those dark days, my faithful, my deep affection. Maurice. " Envelope bearing the address of Marguerite Blanchot written by his brother Maurice glued on half-title page. Marguerite Blanchot, renowned organist Chalon Cathedral, remained all his life in the family home with his mother and aunt. "It will gradually become, for the family, as the memory of origins." Very close to Maurice, she regularly corresponded with the writer who reflects him great recognition for his dedication to their helpless mother. If intense affection Blanchot for his mother and his sister shines in dedications of it, we know almost nothing of their relationship. In the only biographical essay on Blanchot, Christophe Bident reveals, however: "Marguerite Maurice Blanchot worshiped his brother very proud of him, (...) it attached great importance to his political ideas (...) She read a lot (.... .) They phoned corresponded. A distance, they shared the same natural authority, the same concern for discretion. " Blanchot address him indeed many books from his library, now with her continuous intellectual link. A trace of marginal fold in the first flat foot. Nice copy. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! Gallimard Paris 1981 11x18cm broché

        Scrap Book 1900-1981 [inscribed and decorated by Roland Penrose with letters and photographs laid in]

      Inscribed and decorated presentation copy of Penrose's visual autobiography with two letters (one illustrated), an illustrated envelope, a postcard and an original photograph of the the American art lecturer and memoirist Rosamond Bernier to whom the book was given. Penrose has inscribed the book on the half title 'for Rosamond and John', surrounding the printed title with an elaborate and original multi-coloured, colourful surrealist design. Otherwise the book is near fine in a very good dustjacket. Also a decorated letter, May 1975, from Penrose and his wife the photographer Lee Miller in which he congratulates 'Peggy' as she was known and 'John [Russell] of our hearts' on their impending wedding: 'what a gorgeous celebration for the two most wonderful people we know'. Penrose decorated this letter with sunshine and surrealist marginal squiggles and curls. A longer Christmas letter of 1981 from Penrose recalls 'enjoying the festive day... at your fireside with the Folies Bergere in the trees', mentioning a recent trip to Sri Lanka with his French lover trapeze artist Diane Deriaz. Most interestingly, Pennrose discusses recent work 'scratching away at my [Yves] Tanguy preface for the great show that Dominique is putting on at the Pompidoux in in the spring.' A large colour photograph of Rosamond Bernier by a fig tree is also included, titled by Penrose: 'A figurative picture of darling Rosamond turn over a new leaf. Farley Farm August 1976 with much love Roland.' Roland Penrose was a Surrealist painter an object-maker, a collector and art world grandee as well as a writer and organiser of exhibitions who was close to Picasso and married to the artists' muse and photographer Lee Miller. This presentation copy reveals real affection between Penrose and Rosamond Bernier.

Erstausgabe. - [...] Lessings Laokoon ist außerhalb Deutschlands sein wohl bekanntestes Werk auf der ganzen Welt wurde sein Einfluß spürbar [...]. Der Laokoon enthält die erste klare Definition der künstlerischen Wahrheit, die heute als grundlegend angesehen wird: daß jede Kunst Beschränkungen unterworfen ist und Größe nur erreichen kann bei einem klaren Wissen davon sowie in der freien Selbstbeschränkung auf ihre eigentliche Aufgabe. Die aussagekräftigsten Abschnitte und jene, die die meiste Frucht getragen haben, handeln von der Dichtkunst. Lessing wußte darüber mehr zu sagen als über Malerei und Bildhauerei, wo er ganz abhängig von Winckelmann war. Seine Auslegung der Szenen Homers und Sophokles hat auch heute noch Gültigkeit. Er weitete den Horizont für die Wertschätzung der griechischen Literatur [...] (Carter/Muir, Bücher die die Welt verändern, S. 395). - Einband etw. berieben, bestoßen u. fleckig. Rücken m. kl.

        The Forest. Peep Show.

      London: Warren Editions, 1981. One of fifty copies. An enchanting peep show by the well-known children's author and illustrator Harold Jones. Comprised of six layered panels, plus the illustrated front panel bearing the title and viewing aperture. Looking into the viewing aperture reveals a glimpse deep into a forest filled with deer, squirrels, and other animal life. In the background are a waterfall and mountain peaks with trees beginning to show autumnal hues. Printed by Christopher Skelton at Skelton's Press for Jonathan and Phillida Gili. In a slipcase covered with Curwen patterned paper and a hand-colored label, numbered and signed by the artist. The project was initially begun in 1981, but the artist and publishers quickly became overwhelmed by orders and realized that they had underestimated the amount of time and work it would take to hand-color and assemble each copy. The edition was finally completed in 1993. One can easily understand the delay: the hand-coloring is precise and intricate, and each of the panels is quite detailed. Measures approximately 7 by 6 1/4 inches, and 22 inches when extended. Extremely fine.

        Mi Filosofía de A a B y de B a A.

      Tusquets, Barcelona 1981 - 1ª ed. 10.5x18. 238pp. 1h. Rústica. Firmado por Warhol ("Andy") a rotulador en la portadilla. Adjuntamos una entrada a la exposción de Warhol 'Pistolas Cuchillos Cruces' en la Galería Fernando Vijande de Madrid, ilustrada por el artista. La (única) visita de Warhol a Madrid en 1983 fue todo un acontecimiento para el mundo de la Movida madrileña. Le fueron presentados Pedro Almodóvar (como el 'Warhol español'), Ágatha Ruiz de la Prada, Alasaka, Ana Obregón y otros muchos celebreties españoles, aunque parece que al artista nuevayorkino le impactó algo menos la visita, ya que en su diario ni siquiera la menciona. No hemos encontrados ningún otro libro firmado en el curso de esta visita. We have found no other books signed by Warhol on this, his only visit, to Madrid in 1983. Envíos para España: el pago contra reembolso conlleva un recargo de 4 Euros.

        Andy Warhol - Philippe. Photographies Originales

      Par l'auteur. A pair of original black and white photographic portraits taken and printed by Marc Trivier.The two photographs are, respectively, an original photographic portrait of Andy Warhol in New York in 1982; and an original photographic portrait of Philippe taken in Manage in 1981.Artists, strangers, madmen, abbatoirs, trees - Marc Trivier photographed each of his subjects with the same interrogative intensity. All his photographs are in the same square format, simple and confined, with no retouching or alteration of the framing, and seem less to show off a subject - famous or unknown, in or out of power, dead or alive - than to seek out a presence. "What interested me was not simply photographing a body or a face, but the curious situation of someone taking a photo of someone else." In placing his portraits of artists side by side with a divergent pair, Trivier denudes the work of its effect and reveals the enigmatic nakedness of the photographic body. "In his cosmogony every thing, every being - vegetable, mineral or human - deserves the same respect. For all are subject to the same iron law: solitude" (Luc Desbenoit in Télérama, 05/03/2011, on the occasion of Marc Trivier's retrospective at the European House of Photography).Unsigned silver prints, like most of Trivier's work. Unique proofs printed by the artist.One small spot to upper margin of portrait of Warhol.An exceedingly rare diptych by one of the great contemporary photographers.  Par l'auteur S.l. 1981-1982 22x22cm sur papier Ilford 30x40cm 2 planches photographiques
