        THE HONEY BEE AND THE ROBBER (Signed and inscribed with a crayon drawing)

      PHILOMEL BOOKS 1981 - THE HONEY BEE AND THE ROBBER FROM THE BIRGIT OELSCHLAGER COLLECTION (CARLE'S FIRST COUSIN) SIGNED AND DEDICATED WITH A DRAWING FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING First Edition, First Printing: from the collection of Birgit Oelshlager Smith (Eric Carle¿s first cousin). A Scarce delicate title with pull tabs. Wonderfully dedicated to Birgit from BOTH Eric Carle and his wife, Bobbie who co-founded the Eric Carle Museum Of Picture Book Art. A stunning dedication with a scarce crayon drawing of a very large brown bear by Eric Carle. Dedication of ¿Grrr¿ Birgit & Family! merry Christmas & a happy New Year from your cousin Eric & Bobbie & Cirsten & Rolf¿ The book is in overall excellent condition with great boards with no edgewear, and no rips. The boards have a few corner bumps. The binding is tight and square. The internal pages are clean and the flaps although all working are as used. A phenomenal piece for the collector of Eric Carle. A First Edition, First Printing of THE HONEY BEE AND THE ROBBER, with a stunning scarce very personal dedication with a large crayon drawing and signed by Eric Carle and family. Please see the many images. The book was issued without a dust jacket. ABOUT ERIC CARLE ART: Unlike many artists and illustrators, Eric Carle did not dedicate or sell his art, with the exception of his few dedicated pieces going to a close personal friend, Bill Halloran (who was a worldwide educational consultant on children¿s literature). Other than these pieces, the balance of his personal collection were pledged to The Eric Carle Museum Of Picture Book Art. As such, his original artwork in any form is extremely scarce and only one gallery currently even sells any works of Carle¿s. Simple line drawings, such as the one shown in the listing typically sell for $3800 and up unframed, with his more detailed art selling for $25,000 and up. See the Michelson Galleries for additional information on Eric Carle and his art. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Oversized Poster Prospectus for Pioneer

      Np: Mass and Individual Moving, 1981. 73 x 52" poster, printed in black and white. In 1981 the Belgian-based art group Mass and Individual Moving - which on this project were Raphael Opstaele, Barbara Hahn, Jean Claude Desclin, Pierre Gonay, Savino Falcone, and Xavier Looze - debuted their newest project at the ICC Antwerp - a large, wooden, solar-powered printing press named Pioneer. Ten poets were invited to contribute poetic slogans, which were printed in high letters on large broadsides. The first slogan printed off of the press was the latin phrase "Nulla est verae creationi Patria", which ORAS translates as "genuine creation is stateless." My Latin is rusty and was never that good to begin with, but I believe that the phrase could also have an additional connotation suggesting that the political homeland cannot be created, or is impossible. The broadside bearing this statement was exhibited at later actions by Pioneer, and it draws attention to the truly radical nature of the project. While the history of portable printing presses is a long and complex one, such as the use of printing presses on trains following the October Revolution, or the portable printing presses used by armies in the US Civil war, this technological advance usually was used for ideological or state-based means and connected the infrastructure of the state or army. (An exception is the artistic uses which the mimeograph machine was put to in the Mimeograph Revolution, when it was used to create work to respond to the rapid political changes of the 1960's, such as the Motherfuckers printing broadside retorts to Bill Graham in New York at the very town hall meeting at which he was speaking). The solar power source of Pioneer is so radical in an ecological sense because it doesn't rely on political infrastructures, making it a stateless work, an aspect reinforced by the peripatetic nature of the project in later years, as it traveled to France, Germany, and finally to Mechra-Ben-Abou, where it was used to print broadsides at the edge of the Sahara. The impact of the work is reinforced by its size. Instead of subscribing to the trend of miniaturization that is so inextricably linked with portability in our technological age, Pioneer makes a different sort of impact due to the large size and weight (350 kg) of the press, and the oversized banners which it printed - an aspect of the work reinforced by the size of this poster documentation of the work. Pioneer is still intact, and now rests at the Verbeke Foundation. Mass and Individual Moving, and its antecedent group, Mass Moving, were one of the most radical art groups of the postwar period, but they are almost completely unknown in the US, and their works seem to be very poorly represented in US museums and libraries. Part of this may be due to the scarcity of printed works which are exant - Mass Moving is famous for having burnt much of their output upon the dissolution of the group.

Scarce proof of Dick's 'Valis', of which only a small number were prepared (by one account only 19 copies), none of which were sent to reviewers. The leaf adjacent to the lacking leaf is slightly extended from the block and discolored along the fore-edge. Although it is possible that these two leaves were at one point sprung, the tightness of the binding and lack of an obvious gap at the gutter suggest the binding error may have been present from the start. Laid-in is Bantam's "Brief Description" for the book, mimeographed typescript, 4to, three paragraphs.

      New English Library, UK 1981 - NEL, UK. 1981. Immaculate copy of the rare first hardcover/omnibus edition of the author's early Mars novels. Flawless sharp boards, a spotless spine that oozes perfection, clean, unread pages, a pristine dustjacket and even a mint copy of the NEL promotional band around the book's waist advertising the "legendary trilogy". Published in the days when I lived in Westminster and one could cut through Downing Street unhindered en route from St James's Park to Whitehall and via Trafalgar Square on to glorious Soho, there to meet other layabouts willing to explore the joys of ennui. In those days the ICA, Nash House was graced by the presence of James Blish during sf debates, Scotland Yard had not yet relocated to Victoria Street and many bent Old Bill ruffians from West End Central were still working overtime planting dope on innocent Piccadilly pissoir patrons. May the rotters drown in hell's foulest smelling urine fountain. The book is AS NEW and SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. A rare treasure. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      - Zeichnung / Faserstiftzeichnung, in Schwarz, Grau & Grün, auf weißem Papier, 1981. Von Peter Sylvester. 36,8 x 46,0 cm (Darstellung / Blatt). Links unten in Bleistift signiert und datiert. Verso betitelt. - Im oberen Rand etwas knickspurig. Insgesamt mäßig guter Zustand. Peter Sylvester (1937 Saalfeld - 2007 Leipzig). Deutscher Maler und Grafiker, bedeutender Vertreter der Leipziger Schule. 1951-54 Ausbildung zum Chemigrafen. In Jena autodidaktische Beschäftigung mit Malerei und Gasthörerschaft am Kunsthistorischen Institut. 1958 Übersiedlung nach Leipzig. Besuch der Abendakademie und der Werkstätten für Lithografie und Radierung der Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst (HGB). Seit 1964 freischaffend. 1972 Mitbegründer der 'Leipziger Grafikbörse', deren Vorsitzender er ab 1991 war. Das grafische Werk ist durch die experimentelle Erweiterung klassischer Drucktechniken geprägt. Zuerst entstanden Radierungen, dann fotomechanisch bearbeitete Serigraphien. Ab 1976 bearbeitete er Aquatinta-Radierungen mittels des im Zentralinstitut für Isotopen- und Strahlenforschung der Akademie der Wissenschaften der DDR entwickelten Geräts 'Densitron' - eine Vorform computerbasierter Bildbearbeitung. In seinen Chaoslandschaften durchdringen sich Motive der Phantastik, der Umweltkritik und der Harmoniesehnsucht. Das grafische Werk Sylvesters wurde durch zahlreiche nationale und internationale Ausstellungen sowie namhafte Kunstpreise gewürdigt. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
