1981. VG+ condition. Dictionary of Occult, Hermetic & Alchemical Sigils Fred Gettings Grimoire Occult Reference Very Rare OOP Dictionary of Occult, Hermetic & Alchemical Sigils by Fred Gettings Published by Routledge & Kegan Paul, London, Boston & Henley, 1981 VG+ condition This is the very rare, and sought after, Dictionary of Occult, Hermetic & Alchemical Sigils by Fred Gettings. This is a massive reference, guide & source book, which examines variations in, developments of, & meanings of sigils & symbols, used by occultists, alchemists, astrologers, hermeticists, magicians & others, over the past millennium. Fred Gettings has collected around 9,000 sigils, and classified them alphabetically, under 1,500 headings. In addition, there is an extensive bibliography, 7 appendices, and index of sigils at the back. This book is 410 pages long, and is a treasure trove, for anyone seriously interested in studying, using, or employing sigils, symbols, and understanding their history, and evolution, over the centuries. This is the hardcover first, and only edition, which was published in 1981, and has long been out of print, and it is almost impossible to find copies anymore. It has taken me many years to locate a copy, so that I could offer one up for sale. This copy is in VG+ condition, with only very light signs of aging, and use, with some pages having light creases - which appeared to occur during printing - but they are quite subtle. The dust jacket is near fine, and has not been price-clipped. This is a very important, and very rare reference work, which rarely comes up for s … [Click Below for Full Description]

A CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES BOLDLY SIGNED WITH A LARGE INSCRIPTION BY JOHN KENNEDY TOOLE'S MOTHER (THELMA TOOLE) BY JOHN KENNEDY TOOLE Louisiana State University Press, 1981 First Edition, Sixth Printing: Important Signed with a large personal inscription by John Kennedy Toole's mother as: "Sept. 2, 1981 Appreciation and regards from John Kennedy Toole's mother, Thelma Ducoing Toole, to the Dedicated Wives of LSU's Medical Faculty". The incredible story behind the publication of this amazing Pulitzer Prize winning novel is quite unique: A Confederacy of Dunces was a posthumously published novel that was the first work of fiction published by the LSU Press: and which had a very small first printing (reportedly 2500 copies), Initially the book was rejected by dozens of publishers and the author committed suicide in 1969. Years later the author's mother brought the manuscript to Walker Percy, insisting that he read it. Percy overcame his initial hesitations and championed the book, arranging for its publication and contributing an introduction. Ultimately it long deserving acknowledgment for excellence, reviews and word of mouth led to its becoming a best-seller, and it won the Pulitzer Prize. (For this obvious reason one will never find this book ever signed by the author), however the person who was instrumental is having the book published and recogniz … [Click Below for Full Description]

Milton, John; Blake, William; Butlin, Martin (Note on the Illustrations)
Gloucestershire: The Whittington Press & Angscot Productions, 1981. Limited Edition. Full leather. Fine. Blake, William. Special Edition, number VII of XXV, of a total edition of 350, folio size, [37] pp., together with an extra suite of illustrations. "John Milton's (1608-1674) 'On the Morning of Christ's Nativity' is significant for its merit alone, though this remarkable poem is also important in the context of the artist's career. His first major work in English, the nativity ode reflects 'his desire to attempt the highest subjects and to take on the role of bardic Poet-Priest' (Barbara Lewalski, Life of John Milton 38)." (n. b., from the web site of Dartmouth University.) William Blake (1757-1827) had illustrated two other works by Milton before this, the third work to be illustrated by Blake for the Rev. Joseph Thomas. It is comprised of six watercolours, being almost literal illustrations of the text, which is that of the first edition of 1645. Blake's incomparable, exquisite and unique style is a perfect complement to this remarkable work by Milton, presenting a great English poet with a great English mystic artist. ___DESCRIPTION: Full dark-green Oasis goatskin, title in gilt to backstrip, top-edge gilt, fore- and bottom edges uncut, gilt single-rule border to turn-in, marbled endpapers, author's portrait and six colour plates tipped-in; Caslon type, Barcham Green paper with Three Poplars watermark, folio size (12.75" by 10.25"), pagination: [i-x] xi-xii [1-2] 3-24 [1 colophon], special edition, number VII of XXV, of a total edition of 350.

Graz, ADEVA, 1981. 564 Seiten Prachtvolle Kalligraphien reich mit Gold verziert am Anfang des Textes. Entstehung: zu Beginn des 11. Jh.s (im Jahre 391 der Hedschra) in Bagdad, wo Ibn al-Bawwab etwa 64 Koranhandschriften hergestellt haben soll. Dieser Codex zählt auf Grund der Persönlichkeit des Kalligraphen zu den berühmtesten arabischen Koranhandschriften und gilt als das einzige echte Manuskript, das von ihm noch existiert. Es lassen sich wohl Ähnlichkeiten mit Handschriften, die noch aus dem Ende des 10. und zu Beginn des 11. Jahrhunderts erhalten geblieben sind feststellen, doch wird die stilistische Eigenwilligkeit dieses Korans sofort deutlich. Ibn al-Bawwabs Kalligrafie-Schule bestand nach seinem Tod noch weiter bis ins 13. Jahrhundert. Faksimile + Kommentar. Leder mit überreicher Blindprägung in Halblederkassette. Lederrücken der Kassette leicht verblasst und mit kleiner Schabstelle. Faksimile neuwertig. Limitierte Auflage 980 (?) Exemplare. Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 0 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Reagan, Ronald - Ford, Gerald - Carter, Jimmy - Nixon, Richard
Fantastic photograph signed by 4 US presidents together at the White House, October 8th, 1981. Former presidents Nixon, Ford and Carter arrived by helicopter and were greeted by president Ronald Reagan, meeting with them for around half an hour before they left for Andrews Air Force Base, where they would board a plane to Cairo, Egypt. Ford, Carter and Nixon attended the funeral of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, who had been assasinated two days earlier. Reagan, who had survived his own assasination attempt just 6 months earlier, decided was too risky to attend Sadat´s funeral. Instead, the 3 former presidents, including Carter, who had brokered peace between Egypt and Israel, served as the American delegation. This photo was the retirement gift to Helen Colle Donaldson Hollers (1918-2013), who served as White House Appointments Secretary to all 4 presidents (and 5 more!) during her 43 years of service. Size is 8 x 10 inches, some tape traces on verso, othewise in excellent condition.

Moore, Marianne Craig
Dud Noman Press, Loughton, Essex. [12pp]: [iv], 8 (last leaf blank); stitched into letterpress card covers; 217 x 142 mm pamphlet. Number "XVI" of 16 copies issued, initialled by the printer K.Anthony Ward (all published). Cover & title-page read: "Privately Printed in 1968 at The Dud Noman Press, Loughton"; while a laid-in mimeo sheet (dated November 1981) explaining the delay in publication is headed: "A note on the origins of the booklet 'Alyse Gregory Remembered' by Marianne Moore, printed at the Dud Noman Press, 1968". The text of these recollections by one editor of The Dial (1925-9), concerning her predecessor (1924/5), was excerpted by Ward (with express permission) from a signed typescript produced for him, 6 April 1968. Copies of the author's covering letter & signed mss are included with the booklet, together with a copy of an earlier letter from Moore discussing her first separate publication in the States, the booklet 'Marriage' (1923: Monroe Wheeler). It bears noting that in response to a question from Ward about the Glenway Wescott leaflet ('Miss Moore's Observations') generally found with the Wheeler booklet, that they were not in fact issued together (as generally presumed): "Mr Wescott is a friend of Mr Wheelers [sic] but the two publications had no connection, or rather say [sic] were published independently. Was the Library leaflet issued with the booklet? No." The author's reminiscence of Alyse Gregory includes recollections of a trip to England with her mother when they stayed overnight at Chydyok (1936), the Dorset home of Alyse & Llewelyn Powys (his … [Click Below for Full Description]

(DE KOONING Willem) TRIVIER Marc
" - Par l'auteur, s.l. 1981-1984, 22x22cm sur papier Ilford 30x40cm, 2 planches photographiques. - Grand portrait photographique original en noir et blanc réalisé et tiré par Marc Trivier. Photographies d'artistes, de fous, d'arbres ou d'abattoirs, Marc Trivier aborde tous ces sujets avec un regard aussi précis qu'intense. « Dans sa cosmogonie, chaque chose, chaque être, végétal, animal ou humain, mérite le même respect.

Toute artificialité ayant disparu nous ne faisons pas face à la mise en scène d'un sujet mais à une présence exacerbée par la lumière irradiante et singulière, témoin d'un instant de vie et non de pose.

Jeune, il photographie ses proches avant de décider de photographier les artistes et écrivains de son époque. Agé de seulement vingt ans Trivier photographie Bacon, Auerbach … [Click Below for Full Description]
