        Bad Weather

      London: A. Zwemmer Ltd, (1982). A fine copy in illustrated wrappers (there was no hard cover edition).. First Edition. Oblong quarto. Texts by Michael Fish and Peter Turner. Lengthily INSCRIBED by Martin Parr; his first book. With an original SIGNED photograph from the period laid in (printed in 2006). While the image does not appear in the book, it is clear from Parr's inscription that he wished it had been included. Evident here are overtones of Stieglitz's bad weather pictures, as well as the use of heightened contrast popularized by the Provoke photographers. Parr's influence in contemporary British photography is unparalleled, but it is his contribution to the understanding and importance of photographic literature that may be his most profound legacy.

        Typed Letter Signed and Book Review

      1982. A typed letter signed by Butler to poet Tom Clark, regarding Clark's review. In 1981, Butler, who would later win the 1993 Pulitzer Prize for his collection A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain, published his first book, The Alleys of Eden. It was reviewed by Clark in the February 11, 1982 Los Angeles Times, with the headline "Vietnamization of a Deserter's Mind." On May 12, Butler wrote to Clark, saying, in part: "I have received twenty major reviews of the book but none of them was more sensitive or insightful than yours. The best literary criticism actually explains an author to himself. That's what your review did. I understand my own book better after reading your review and I want to thank you for that." The letter is signed "Bob Butler." Also included here is Clark's original, 3-page manuscript review, signed by Clark: "...Desertion, Butler seems to say, is an inevitable act, made necessary by the human state. Every small movement is an abandonment of the past, with death looming over everything as the greatest desertion of all..." Clark's review makes it clear that Butler's protagonist -- an Army intelligence officer who ends up deserting out of self-disgust over his involvement in the torture and death of a Viet Cong prisoner -- is an analogue for the larger society, which deserted both Vietnam and those who fought there, leaving both the Vietnamese and the veterans as "displaced persons," in both countries. Clark's review is penned on the back of copies from a book about Celine and folded in half; near fine. A photocopy of the published review is included. Butler's letter is folded for mailing; else fine in a near fine envelope. With a copy of Alleys of Eden [NY: Horizon (1981)], which is fine in a very near fine dust jacket with a short edge tear. An insightful review of one of the best novels to come out of the Vietnam war, and the author's appreciative response. . First Edition.

        Faksimile - Codex Guta-Sintram. Bibliothèque du Grand Séminaire, Strasbourg, Ms. 37. (2 Bde.).

      2° (36 x 27 cm), 326 S., 230 teilw. ganzseitige farb. Bilder; Kommentarbd.: 240 S., Geprägter Rindsledereinband (Kommentarbd. HLdr.), Minimal beschienen, sonst tadellos. Vergriffen! Nr. 334 von 980 Exemplaren. Eine Kostbarkeit romanischer Buchkunst. Juwel romanischer Buchmalerei. Der Codex Guta-Sintram ist eine der kostbarsten Handschriften des Elsaß, die wegen ihres Alters, ihres außergewöhnlichen romanischen Buchschmucks und ihres hochinteressanten Inhalts zu den Kulturschätzen von europäischem Rang zählt. Auch die Tatsache, daß Schreiber, Illustrator sowie Entstehungszeit bekannt sind, trägt zur Sonderstellung dieser einzigartigen Handschrift bei. Ein ungewöhnliches Teamwork Der Codex Guta-Sintram ist das gemeinsame Werk der Augustiner-Chorfrau Guta von Schwarzenthann und des Augustiner-Chorherrn Sintram von Marbach in der Nähe von Schwarzenthann. Die schöne Schrift stammt aus der Hand der Guta, während Sintram den wundervollen Buchschmuck mit ganzseitigen Bildern und zahllosen großen und kleinen Initialen ausführte. Gemeinsam vollendeten die beiden 1154 das prächtige Werk und weihten es der Jungfrau Maria. Das Kloster Marbach im Oberelsaß wurde 1089 durch Manegold von Lauterbach gegründet, der dort die Augustiner-Chorherren ansässig machte. Dieses berühmte Kloster war danach Ausgangspunkt und Zentrum vieler bedeutender Neugründungen am Oberrhein, in Süddeutschland und in der Schweiz. Eine in ihrer Art einmalige Handschrift Der Codex Guta-Sintram ist ein Gebetbuch, das dem Gebrauch der Damen des Klosters Schwarzenthann diente. Aber damit ist er nicht ausreichend gewürdigt, denn er sprengt die engen Grenzen eines Gebetbuches: Er enthält auch Hinweise zum Lebenswandel und Lebensunterhalt der Chorfrauen; er diente als Rechtsbuch, denn er beinhaltet auch eine Abschrift päpstlicher Privilegien für den Konvent. Auch auf die Zeiteinteilung der Klosterinsassinnen wird eingegangen, denn es finden sich genaue Anweisungen zum Gebrauch des Kalenders und zur Berechnung des Osterdatums sowie ein umfangreicher Kalender mit dem Martyriologium. Dazu enthält das Buch ein auf die Monate aufgeteiltes, architektonisch gegliedertes Verzeichnis der in Marbach und Schwarzenthann verstorbenen Äbte, Pröpste, Mönche, Priorinnen und Nonnen. Weiter gehören zu diesem einmaligen Werk eine Sammlung von Predigten zum Tagesevangelium (ein Homiliar) und schließlich auch die Augustinerregel mit dem Kommentar des Hugo von St. Victor sowie die Consuetudines, eine Sammlung der im Kloster Marbach üblichen Gewohnheiten und Bräuche. Dazu kommt noch ein illustriertes Kalendarium. Romanische Tips für gesundes Leben Das wichtigste Element des Codex Guta-Sintram ist der aufwendig gestaltete Kalender, der über 70 Seiten der Handschrift reicht und die reichste Ausstattung erhalten hat. Die Seiten sind mit sich über die ganze Doppelseite hinziehenden Bildstreifen mit Initialen und Tierkreiszeichen und Dreiergruppen von Personen geschmückt. Auf Spruchbändern sind verschiedene medizinische, pharmakologische und gesundheitliche Ratschläge festgehalten, wie etwa Vorschriften für den Aderlaß oder Ratschläge für Essen und Baden. Empfohlen werden je nach Monat Arzneien pflanzlicher und tierischer Herkunft, heilkräftige Mischungen sowie Diätspeisen. Dieser mit Witz und Humor gestaltete diätetische Monatskalender gibt einen einmaligen Einblick in die klösterliche Pharmazie und Medizin des Mittelalters. Ein damit vergleichbares Beispiel gibt es weltweit nicht. Der Kommentarband Das große Ereignis der Faksimilierung dieses wichtigen Werkes war Anlaß zu einer umfassenden wissenschaftlichen Untersuchung der Handschrift, die auch vom Nationalen Forschungsinstitut in Paris unterstützt wurde. Folgende Experten haben mitgewirkt: die Herausgeberin, Dr. Béatrice Weis, Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, Strasbourg; Dr. Pierre Bachoffner, Strasbourg; Dr. Gérard Cames, Strasbourg; Abbé Jean Châtillon, Professor am Institut Catholique, Paris; Abbé Raymond Etaix, Bibliothekar der Facultés Catholiques, Lyon; Marie Popin, maître-assistente der Universität Strasbourg; R.P. Joseph Siegwart O.P., Professor an der Universität Freiburg i.Ü.; R.P. Luc Verheijen O.S.A., maître de recherche au C.N.R.S., Paris; Michel Parisse, Professor an der Universität Nancy; Robert Will, Chefarchitekt der Gemeinde Strasbourg und Cyrille Vogel, Professor an der theologischen Fakultät der Universität Strasbourg.

        2010: Odyssey Two

      Phantasia Press Huntington Woods, Michigan: Phantasia Press. 1982. First. First edition. Fine in very near fine dustwrapper in original slipcase (see below for slipcase condition). One of 650 numbered copies Signed by the author, this copy unnumbered. Additionally Inscribed by Arthur C. Clarke to his protege, one-time secretary, and longtime friend Ian Macauley; "For Ian, to cheer you up on your 50th birthday (lucky guy!) and to prove that I've not forgotten Atlanta in '52 -Affectionately, Arthur. 4 Ap '89." Clarke sent the book to Macauley from Sri Lanka, using the novel method of pasting wrapping paper over the slipcase and addressing it to Macauley, with predictable results -- the addressed paper is still attached and one end of the slipcase has been cut away, apparently when the package was opened. Macauley was the dedicatee of Clarke's first published hardcover novel, Islands in the Sky (1952), and was an award-winning New York Times journalist. He also edited Clarke's book of collected essays, Greetings, Carbon-Based Bipeds! (2000). A nice association copy of this novel. Apparently the reference to 1952 in the inscription refers to Clarke's 1952 visit to Macauley in Atlanta, where he wrote the last chapter of Childhood's End, reportedly after discussions with Macauley. Basis for the 1984 film, written and directed by Peter Hyams, and featuring Roy Scheider, John Lithgow, Helen Mirren, Bob Balaban, and Keir Dullea (reprising his role from Stanley Kubrick's classic 2001: A Space Odyssey). .

      North Tawton: The Morrigu Press. NF. 1982. Limited Edition. Softcover. Sewn in grey Fabriano Del-Sarto wraps with paper label bearing titles on upper cover, internally clean and bright, number 14 of an edition of 75 copies printed at the Morrigu Press in Centaur on Fabriano Michaelangelo paper and signed by Hughes on the limitation page, with a colophon drawn by Leonard Baskin. , The Morrigu Press was founded in 1979, when Ted Hughes' sister, Olwyn, gave his son, Nicholas, her Albion hand press and a large fount of Monotype Centaur. Olwyn, who together with her brother had been publishing limited editions of his work under the Rainbow Press imprint, had bought the press in the early 1970s, planning to experiment with design ideas for books. However printing proved more complicated than expected and so she gave the press to her nephew. Nicholas had learned printing and bookbinding at school, had discovered a talent for it and so set about printing limited editions of his father's work. Ted Hughes was a talented illustrator, but The Morrigu Press publications are almost the only place where his illustrations were published. The exceptions being the Rainbow Press book, 'Earth Moon', and, as a single drawing of a bull, on or in Moortown Elegies and the trade edition of Moortown Diary. , 9.75" by 6.75", Unpaginated pp .
