        THE WHITTINGTON PRESS A BIBLIOGRAPHY 1971-1981 With an Introduction and Notes By John Randle

      Risbury, Herefordshire: The Whittington Press, July, 1982. NUMBERED LIMITED EDITION, one of only 95 copies bound in vellum and marbled boards and with 25 others, the only issue to include an extensive set of tipped-in specimen pages. Including the normal copies, there was a printing of only 320 copies in total. Handsomely printed on Zerkall Halbmatt mould-made papers, illustrated with engravings printed from woodblocks and halftones, the plates printed by Adrian Lack at Senecio, and this copy with the set of over 50 specimen pages, mostly from the original printings, and which were not included in the 200 buckram bound copies. 4to, in the original binding by Paul Collet and designed by Richard Kennedy of quarter vellum over marbled boards, the paper marbled at Whittington by Colen Gryspeerdt, the spine panel trimmed and lettered in gilt, in the original slipcase of brown paper-covered boards with woodcut vignette pastedown. 83, [1], specimen leaves pp. An especially fine and beautiful copy, essentially pristine and as mint. FIRST EDITION AND A VERY BEAUTIFUL AND SCARCE BIBLIOGRAPHY OF THIS MODERN FINE PRESS. The Whittington Press has, since 1971, been printing books by letterpress, from type ('as God intended', as the Revd. Bernard Roberts once remarked), in the Gloucestershire village of Whittington. It was started by John and Rosalind Randle partly as the result of an early enthusiasm for Caslon type, Albion presses and hand-made papers, and partly the wish to escape from London publishing jobs at the weekend. Its first book, Richard Kennedy's 'A Boy at the Hogarth Press' (1972), which took a year of weekends and holidays to print in an edition of 525 copies on an 1848 Columbian hand-press, proved to be that rare event in the private press world, a best seller, and encouraged the founders to make the Press a full-time activity in 1974. From 1972 to 1991 the Press’ home was at Manor Farm, Andoversford, a mile away from the presses at Whittington. Since 1972 they have printed, and nearly always published, some 250 books, including the renowned annual review for printers and bibliophiles, Matrix (‘by far the finest periodical of the book arts of the twentieth century, surpassing even the seven-volume Fleuron issued in the 1920s’), which is now in its thirty-fifth year. The Press has received numerous awards for its printing and publishing, including THE AMERICAN PRINTING HISTORICAL ASSOCIATION’S AWARD for Matrix, the first time APHA’S INSTITUTIONAL AWARD has gone to a private press. The Press has a varied list, which can be best described as belles lettres, and includes books with and about wood-engravings, bibliographies of other presses, type specimens, diaries, pochoir (stencil) illustration, and much else besides. The one factor they all have in common is illustration, nearly always printed from the original block, plate or stencil (‘things, not pictures of things’, as Eric Gill once said).

        Ex-Convict (Signed First Edition)

      N.p.: David Allen Coe, 1982. First Edition. First Edition. Near Fine in trade wrappers as issued. SIGNED by David Allen Coe on the front wrapper. The maverick country singer's primitively printed autobiography, detailing his time in 11 different correctional institutions--from juvenile detention centers to prison--beginning at age 9, followed by a career as something of a renegade country singer. Coe's biggest single was "Take This Job and Shove It" in the 1970s, but his career as an underground hero among truck drivers, criminals, and outcasts of every variety is a good bit more interesting. Near Fine in perfect bound photo illustrated wrappers.

        TOTEM (ACUARELA DE ENRIQUE MARIN)

      1982 - Materia: Obra original. Enrique Marín Muñoz. Arte. Año de producción: 1982 Medidas: 30 x 40 cm. Técnica: Acuarela Firmada y con fecha en el margen lateral derecho. Conservación: Buen estado. Enrique Marín Muñoz (Sevilla, 1935). Pintor, grabador y dibujante. Se forma en la Escuela de Artes y Oficios de Sevilla y en la de Bellas Artes de París, ciudad donde reside. Entre otros galardones, ha obtenido el Premio de Grabado para Extranjeros de la Escuela de Bellas Artes de París (1964), y el de la Nacional de Artes Gráficas de Madrid (1968), Segunda Medalla en el XVIII Salón de Grabado de Madrid (1969), Premio de Grabado de la Bienal de Buenos Aires (1971), Premio Prieto Nespereira (Madrid, 1971), Medalla de Oro del Círculo de Bellas Artes en el XIX Salón Internacional del Grabado (Madrid, 1974), Premio XXV Exposición de Otoño de Sevilla (1976), Premio León de San Marcos de Venecia (1979), etc. Expone por primera vez en 1958 en Sevilla y en 1962 en París, haciéndolo desde entonces en numerosas ciudades europeas, como Amsterdam, Ragusa, Tokio, Roma, Ginebra, Venecia, Novara, Milán, Madrid, etc. Sus más recientes exposiciones han sido la de la galería Juant Pointe et Burín, de París (1995) y la antológica de Pintura, Escultura y Grabado, de la Fundación El Monte, de Sevilla (1995). Ha participado en importantes muestras colectivas y ha ilustrado entre otros libros "Romans et Contes", de Voltaire (París, 1966); "Monsieur le President", de Miguel Ángel Asturias (París, 1967); "Platero et moi" de Juan Ramón Jiménez (Ediciones Bibliográficas de París, 1970). También ha colaborado en la realización de películas de dibujos animados para la televisión francesa. El universo pictórico de Enrique Marín posee unas profundas raíces literarias en la que se entremezclan la ternura y la sátira. Un surrealismo subyacente, dramático y jocoso a la vez, se subordina a una intencionalidad ética, que en ocasiones alcanza una inteligente agresividad. El rigor del dibujo y la frescura del color, unidos a su innegable personalidad creadora, sitúan su obra entre las más interesantes de la pintura figurativa española. Tanto sus óleos, sobre lienzo o madera, como sus acuarelas y pasteles aúnan su capacidad creadora con la evidencia de su dominio técnico. Está representado en el Museo Biblioteca Nacional de Madrid, en la Biblioteca Nacional de París, Museo de Bellas Artes de Granada, entre otros EBS1

        Verwandlungen durch Licht / Metamorphosis through Light [WITH AN ORIGINAL SILVER-GELATIN PRINT NUMBERED, HAND-CAPTIONED AND SIGNED AT VERSO]

      Luca Verlag, Freren 1982 - 1/100. Folio (12 x 9 1/2"). 110, [2]pp. Original full brown cloth with white lettering to spine. Limitation page hand-numbered (No. 37/100). Book housed in its matching publisher's slipcase with b/w photographic reproduction pasted onto front cover. Completed in 1936 in Palestine, where Swiss Avant-Garde portrait photographer Helmar Lerski had immigrated in 1932, "Metamorphosis through Light" is a stunning 'tour de force' in which Lerski carried his talent to extremes. With the help of up to 16 mirrors and filters, he directed the natural light of the sun in constant new variations and refractions onto his model, the Bernese-born, at the time out-of-work draughtsman and light athlete Leo Uschatz. Thus he achieved, in a series of over 140 close-ups "hundreds of different faces, including that of a hero, a prophet, a peasant, a dying soldier, an old woman and a monk from one single original face" (Siegfried Kracauer in "Theory of Film," Oxford University Press, 1960, p. 162). According to Lerski, these pictures were intended to provide proof "that the lens does not have to be objective, that the photographer can, with the help of light, work freely, characterize freely, according to his inner face."Laid in at rear, inside a white envelope, is a splendid silver gelatin print (10 3/4 x 8 1/2") produced by German photographer Andr

        The Mists of Avalon (Inscribed)

      Alfred A. Knopf, NY 1982 - 8vo. xi(i),876,(iv)pp. Black cloth spine, dark gray paper over boards, both blocked in copper foil. A trace of sunning along the top board edge, and a touch of soil to the top and bottom text edges else this is a fine copy. The dust wrapper is not price-clipped and is also fine. Inscribed by the author in the title page: "For Patrick". The author was involved with the Society for Creative Anachronism ("SCA"). In 1968 The East Kingdom was founded in the SCA; it was started by Elfrida and Walter of Greenwalls (Marion Zimmer Bradley and her then husband Walter Breen). The Annotated History notes the following about the first Kingdom event (June 2, 1968 - AS III): "Held at the Cloisters, New York City, New York. A tourney was planned but it was rained out. Elfrida and Walter of Greenwalls were the seneschals and the autocrats." This copy is signed on the title page, not on a plate or slip of paper pasted in. "Historical writing on a grand scale, with all the magic conviction and resonance of ballad and ancient lore." - Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 4A-48. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
