        Mirrors / Messages / Manifestations

      Aperture (1982), New York - 1/50. Square quarto. 243pp. Mottled tan cloth with spine lettered in silver in original slipcase. Profusely illustrated with 253 b/w reproductions of photographs on glossy paper by Minor White. With original 10 3/4" x 7 1/2" black and white photograph, 'Stone Steps, Notom, Utah, 1967', Estate stamp dated 1980 on verso, window-mounted on stiff board (15 3/4 x 20"), original tissue guard with printed caption, all in original portfolio of gray paper-covered boards with white folding flaps, name of artist in silver lettering on front cover. Only issues 1-25 were published with this particular photograph. All in near fine condition. "Minor White was a mystic, and Mirrors / Messages / Manifestations is a forthrightly mystical work. These qualities in themselves signify courage because there were few - even among Minor's closest associates and friends - willing to deal seriously with such intangibles. Minor's mysticism, however, was neither occult nor sentimental. It was a search for intelligence that goes beyond the ordinary dimensions of daily life. In an unpublished manuscript written in 1969, the year this book was first issued, Minor wrote: Consciousness in photography comes out of an awakening to the interlocking interconnectedness of everything, from atoms to suns, space to time, light to dark, event to situation, man to Man, and Man to God."

        WAR HORSE

      London: Kaye and Ward 1982 - First edition, first printing. Original illustrated boards, without dustwrapper as issued. A superb fine clean bright and tight copy with one tiny bump to the top edge. Scarce. Despite critical acclaim, and being runner-up for the 1982 Whitbread Award, the book sold poorly on first publication. It seemed destined to remain in relative obscurity until 2007, when it was adapted for the National Theatre stage, winning 2 Olivier Awards. In March 2009 the show transferred to the West End before opening on Broadway in 2011 and winning five Tony Awards. DreamWorks Studios acquired the film rights in 2009, with the Steven Spielberg directed film released in 2011. Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request.

        Die Cosmographia des Claudius Ptolemaeus 1472/3

      Besler and Johnson,, Zurich & New York 1982 - Superb facsimile of the Vatican's Ptolemy Cosmographia of 1472 Folio atlas (620 by 460mm), 135pp., [2] leaves, full colour facsimile reproduction of the Vatican Codex Urb. Lat. 277., full blind tooled calf with gilt centrepiece, brass centre and corner pieces, leather clasps. Superb facsimile of Ptolemy's Cosmographia, published by the Vatican.The original manuscript was commissioned by the Duke of Urbino in 1472/3, and came into the Vatican Library in 1657. In 1983 the Vatican Library published 550 facsimiles; 500 of which were meant for sale and fifty - each marked with a Roman numeral I-L - to be kept by the Library, for use as state gifts. The present copy is marked with the Roman numerals 'VII'. One such example was presented by Pope Benedict XVI to Christian Wulff, the President of Germany, during his Apostolic visit to Germany, on the 22nd September 2011. The press release that accompanied the gift gives a general history of the work:"This facsimile reproduces the manuscript containing the Latin translation of the Greek text (version "A") of the Geographia by Claudius Ptolemy (2nd century AD), performed by Iacopo Angeli da Scarperia (around 1360-1410). The title Cosmographia, which seemed the most appropriate to the author, was based on choices made by other Latin authors for similar works (the reasons why are explained in folio 2v).Together with other, similar specimens this magnificent manuscript documents the rediscovery and positive reappraisal during the Renaissance of Ptolemy's cartographic oeuvre, as a synthesis of Hellenistic culture and a recognised milestone in the representation of the earth, unique among its kind in terms of the wealth of theoretical and practical information it provides on the topic. The codex was transcribed in Florence in an elegant, humanist script by Hugues Commineau (Ugo Comminelli) de Mézières (see colophon folio 70r; in abridged form folio 122r), the same copyist of the splendid Bible of Urbino (Urb. Lat. 1-2). Pietro del Massaio and Francesco Rosselli were also involved in its production: both were well known as illuminators thanks to their workshops, which were specialised in the manufacture of maps and geographical works. The embellishment is valuable; this begins with the title page (folio 1v), which contains a sumptuously enframed reference to the title and the translator in gold on a blue background; the incipit of the translator's foreword (folio 2r) is decorated along the edges with gold and coloured borders comprised of flowers, putti with candelabras (also a recurrent motif in the initials of the text) and medallions, plus an illumination showing the translator presenting the work to Pope Alexander V (wrongly identified as Alexander III). The incipit of each book includes delightful initials painted in miniature; colourful frames embellish the introductory texts to the maps that follow.The text is divided into eight books. Book I (folios 3r-13r) explains the theoretical concept of 'geographia' and methods for designing maps; books II-VII (folios 13r-69r) contain information on the names of towns and cities, countries, regions and peoples of the world together with their coordinates; book VIII (folios 69r-70r) details the number of maps and provinces for each continent, and includes short descriptions and data on the main cities etc. These books are followed by the 27 maps traditionally ascribed to Ptolemy: the entire world as it was then known (folios 72v-73r), then 10 maps of Europe (folios 74v-92r; Germany is on folio 80r), 4 maps of Africa (92v-100r), 12 of Asia (100v-121r). Then come seven non-traditional maps or 'novae' (folios 122v-129r), and 10 city- and townscapes (folios 129v-135r). The sequence is determined by a practical cartographic criterion. The more than 8,000 locations named are entered in a grid of longitudes and latitudes, which Ptolemy is the first to use in the modern sense.The codex belonged to the library of Federico da Montefeltro, Duke of Urbino (14

Massey was from one of the great theatre families of the 20th century, being the daughter of Raymond Massey and Adrianne Allen. Though she never reached truly stellar fame, Anna Massey was a highly respected actress and very much a prominent feature of the thespian landscape of the late 20th century.

King has been called the King of the Blues and Ambassador of the Blues, and indeed he’s reigned across the decades as the genre’s most recognizable and influential artist. His half-century of success owes much to his hard work as a touring musician who consistently logged between 200 and 300 shows a year. Through it all he’s remained faithful to the blues while keeping abreast of contemporary trends and deftly incorporating other favored forms - jazz and pop, for instance - into his musical overview. Much like such colleagues and contemporaries as Buddy Guy and John Lee Hooker, B.B. King managed to change with the changing times while adhering to his blues roots.

        El Salvador: El Pueblo Vencera (The People's Victory). A Film by The Film Institute of Revolucionary [sic] El Salvador F.M.L.N.

      S.i. [1982], N.p. - Dramatic composition depicting a host of F.M.L.N. guerrillas marching forth from Monte Alzaco, the spiritual home of Salvadoran resistance. Undated and unattributed, but presumably dating from around the time of the premiere of El Pueblo Vencera, the documentary which did a great deal to promote the rebel cause on American college campuses. Possibly a university art student's work (though if so a quite accomplished one); in any case, given the uniform dimensions in inches we assume the poster was produced in the U.S. and not Latin America (despite the Spanish misspelling of "revolutionary." Original silkscreened poster in three colors; 30" x 20" (ca 77cm x 56cm). Printed in red, blue and black inks on heavy art paper. Considerable bleed-through of colors to verso; impression slightly uneven along upper margin; a few small spots of soil -- still a bright, clean example, Near Fine. Unbacked.

        Ham On Rye (Advance Review Copy, Signed)

      Santa Barbara, CA: Black Sparrow Press, 1982. First edition. Paperback. Very good or better in wraps; adhesive bleed-through to the publication notice on front; 'Advance Copy" stamp to front free endpaper. Signed by Bukowski on the title page. As indicated on the colophon, this copy from the trade edition published in wraps. An attractive example in an exceedingly scarce format; Black Sparrow as a rule was parsimonious in their distribution of review and advance copies, and if there were more than a handful of this particular title in this particular form, it would be a surprise. Certainly the scarcest example in the hierarchy of signed copies; it's not unreasonable to assume while there are 350 signed and numbered copies, plus the 136 lettered and signed, there may be a few signed review copies in the marketplace, but certainly not more than a handful.

        The Virgin Method Letter (Vol 1, No.1 and Vol. 1, No. 2) 1982

      Kassandra (P.Q. Wall), Denver, CO, U.S.A. 1982 - No Binding, stapled loose pages, ORIGINAL newsletters by P.Q. Wall from 1982. Vol. 1, No. 1 is 8 pages, Vol. 1. No. 2 is 7 pages. Book Condition: Very Good, these are ORIGINAL newsletters published by P.Q. Wall in Jan. 8, 1982 and Jan. 18, 1982. The production quality from Wall is fair, it's apparent that Wall did some sloppy production of these pieces, but his content is completely original. The scope of P.Q. Wall's cycle theories are vast and complex. His cycle theories applied to the markets entail a great deal of cycles overlapping at different time periods. These letters were originally sent by Wall to Dr. Jerome Baumring (owner of the Investment Centre Bookstore in Los Angeles). These were part of Baumrings Collection of rare Wall titles and articles. Here is an excerpt from the Introduction: Our dream is to write the best market letter in the world. To. do this we would have to have advanced insight into economic cycle-rhythms for long range overview, a VIRGIN cycle theory. We would also have to have an original or VIRGIN way of measuring the current "cutting edge." of the market daily. We need both these things, and they will constitute the two main portions of each letter. We will begin each letter with random comments under the reading, "High P.Q. Technician," explained below. One last word on "cutting edge." This involves identifying the "fateful eighty virgins," eight culled (not inclusive or even representative) group averages that constitute the segments of the current cutting edge. For example, three years ago gambling stocks would have been one such segment. We use four criteria, 1. V = Volatility, 2. IR = Intermediate-Term Responsive, 3. GI = Group Inherent, 4. N = Norm Self-Orbiting (orbiting its own independent center of gravity.) -- end. EXTREMELY SCARCE CONTENT, Highly Collectible. [Attributes: First Edition]

It was one of only 2,000 copies published in  Germany in 1982 - NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH the American Edition or later German printings.  It is a huge book - 11.5 X 13 and weighs eight pounds. We are offering the slipcase, book and two page publication event brochure. Book and Dust jacket are pristine except for small crinkle to foot of spine. Otherwise tight, square and clean.

        Title in Arabic=] Christ in the Wilderness [cover title]

      nd [ca mid-19th century?], [Beirut?] - Approx. 4¼ x 3" (10.5 x 7.5 cm.); original green printed wrappers with a metal-cut border on both wrappers, the front wrapper enclosing the title in Arabic with an ink transliteration above; back wrapper with a small piece missing from the lower gutter margin; waterstained at the bottom margin throughout, occasionally touching the last line or two of text. Geoffrey J. Roper, historian, scholar, past head of the Islamic Bibliography Unit at Cambridge University Library, 1982-2003, and Editor of Index Islamicus and of the World Survey of Islamic Manuscripts, notes: "I have not been able to find any bibliographical record of this booklet, but the type-face is certainly that of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions (ABCFM) press in Beirut. These types were supplied to other presses in the area at various times, but in view of the content of this item, it seems most likely to have been printed by the ABCFM." [Attributes: Soft Cover]
