        Green Lantern Vol. 2 167, page 14 "Ring Against Ring!"

      DC Comics Inc, 1983. 16 x 10 inches. Fine. 16 x 10 inches. Comic Synopsis: Having acquired an Oan Power Ring, the irate Galius Zed turns against his comrade Hal Jordan and decides to show him what a true ring-bearer can now accomplish. Hal has little chance against a foe armed with such a superior weapon, but Galius Zed quickly learns that the ring taxes his own life energies, draining him of power and vitality. A withering Zed collapses before Hal Jordan. Hal calls to mind how this whole business got started. It began with Green Lanterns Eddore and Kaylark. Both of them had come into conflict with a trio of space pirates called the Free Lancers. The Free Lancers showed them how their masters, the Guardians of the Universe had crafted a ring that was not inhibited by materials colored yellow. This enraged Eddore and Kaylark, and drove them to renounces the Guardians. Kaylark came into possession of her own Oan ring and returned to her home planet D'xe where she crowned herself Empress. Eddore acquired an Oan Power Ring as well and returned to his native world of Tront. With the power of the ring, he forced hundreds of Trontians to fuse their essences with his own, creating an over-sized being of great power. Hal Jordan came to Tront and fought against the Eddore/Trontian entity. Channeling all of his ring's energy into the being, he overloaded it with power, causing it to collapse to the ground. "Green Lantern Vol 2 167." DC Database. N.p., n.d. Web. 22 Apr. 2015. Page Synopsis: Hal Jordan is in search for Eddore on his home planet. Upon arrival, he has discovered that Eddore has merged himself with all the inhabitants on the planet and formed a colossal beast.

        Rätoromanische Chrestomathie. Reprint der Originalausgaben 1888-1912. 14 Bde. u. 1 Registerbd in 16 Bdn. (compl.).

      Chur, Octopus/ Società Retorumanscha, -1986 1983 - Gr.-8°, ca. 8000 S., OLwd. m OU., Tadell. Die Rätoromanische Chrestomathie von Caspar Decurtins ist die bis heute wichtigste Textsammlung des Bündnerromanischen. Die insgesamt rund 8000 Seiten enthalten Texte der verschiedensten Gattungen über einen Zeitraum von vier Jahrhunderten, aus allen Regionen und in allen Idiomen des Bündnerromanischen. Die heute wichtigste Textsammlung (EA 1888-96) auf Rätoromanisch wurde zwischen 1982 und 1986 vom Churer Verleger Andreas Joos zusammen mit der Società Retorumantscha als 13-teilige Buchreihe neu herausgegeben und durch einen 14. und 15. Band ergänzt. - Caspar Decurtins (1855-1916), auch «Löwe von Trun» genannt, Politiker (Katholisch-Konservativ) aus dem Surselva, studierte Decurtins nach 1875 Geschichte, Kunstgeschichte und Staatsrecht in München und Heidelberg, ab 1877 wieder in Graubünden. Als Landammann der Cadi führte Decurtins nach 1877 zusammen mit Placi Condrau die Restaurierung des Klosters Disentis durch. Er schaltete die politische Konkurrenz der Katholisch-Liberalen in der Surselva aus und wurde die treibende Kraft hinter der Lavina naira. In den 1890er Jahren schmolz seine Wählerbasis im Kanton zunehmend und Decurtins zog sich enttäuscht aus der Politik zurück. Im Jahr 1889 hatte Decurtins an der Gründung der Universität Freiburg durch seinen Studienfreund Georges Python entscheidenden Anteil. Von 1905 bis 1913 unterrichtete er als Professor für Kulturgeschichte an der dortigen Philosophischen Fakultät. 25000 gr.

II (apparatus criticus) 340 pp. Text in romanized Sanskrit, Japanese, Tibetan, and English. Vol. I bound in gold silk shantung, embossed in silver; vol. II bound in grey silk shantung, embossed in gold. Each volume contained in a matching cloth slipcase. Some minor wear to slipcases; head fore-corners of first two leaves of plate volume dog-eared, otherwise an excellent set. A fine copy of the most sumptuous reproduction of the important and celebrated Ngor Collection, a series of 139 mandala thangkas illustrating the tantric practices as described in the Rgyud sde kun btus (Compendium of Tantras), by Jamyang Loter Wangpo. The names of the artists, 19th-century Tibetans from the Dzongsar monastery in Eastern Tibet who were commissioned by the Ngor sect of the Sa-skya school, are not recorded, but they were obviously of the highest caliber, both as draftsmen and colorists, using only the finest and purest pigments available from Nepal, China, India, and elsewhere. Rinpoche (Wylie: bSod nams rgya mtsho), the principal editor of our book, rescued the original scrolls from the Ngor Ewam Chöden Monastery, where he was reincarnate khenpo of the Thartse Sub-Monastery, shortly before the 1959 Chinese invasion of Tibet that destroyed it and 6000 other monasteries. Rinpoche, along with the mandalas and the xylographic texts of the Compendium of Tantras, made his way safely to Japan, where he was freshly nominated by his host country as Hiroshi Sonami. There he worked at Japan's largest institution for Asian studies, the T y Bunko in Tokyo, where, through the intercession of the curator of the Royal Library of Bhutan, Yoshiro Imaeda, Rinpoche ultimately met with the publisher at the Kodansha press, who, in 1983, produced this imposing two-volume set, which is today the most precise, faithful, and beautiful representation of what is the only surviving complete set of mandala thangkas of the visual aspects of this core text. The plates in the first volume, printed in five-color offset, are matched in brilliance only by the scholarship devoted to them in the second. The present work was printed in an edition of only 300 copies. NB: Our edition is not to be confused with the inferior Korean and Chinese translations were published in 1988 and 1990 respectively. The Center for East Asian Cultural Studies published a trade edition of the plates in 1989 (in black and white only) and the text in 1991. NB: these volumes weigh almost 30 lbs each; altogether the gross shipping weight may be ca. 70 lbs. Additional shipping costs will apply. Please inquire.

      Aarau u. Buchs, Sauerländer u. Lehrmittelverlag, -2004 1983 - 8°, ca. 27000 S., Bd.1-40 u. Registerbd. 1,2,4,5 Brosch.; Bd.41-118 u. Registerbd. 3, 6-14 Kart.; Bd.119-143 u. Registerbd. 15-17 OLwd., Bd. 1-80 Rücken beschienen, sonst tadell. Neupreis 7650.? Alles was bisher erschienen ist. Die Sammlung Zurlauben, kurz "Zurlaubiana" genannt besteht aus einer rund 8'000 Titel umfassenden Privatbibliothek und einer Sammlung von über 50'000 historischen Akten aus dem Besitz der Zuger Familie Zurlauben, die eine einzigartige Quellensammlung zur Geschichte der frühen Neuzeit darstellen. Die Familie Zurlauben verfügte im 16., 17. und 18. Jahrhundert über grossen politischen und gesellschaftlichen Einfluss im Kanton Zug. Die bis heute erhaltene Sammlung geht vor allem auf den letzten männlichen Nachkommen der Familie zurück: Generalleutnant Beat Fidel Zurlauben (1720-1799). Neben seiner Karriere als Offizier in französischen Diensten betätigte sich Beat Fidel Zurlauben als Historiker, militärwissenschaftlicher Schriftsteller und emsiger Sammler von Büchern und Akten aller Art. Auf Grund einer drastischen Kürzung seiner französischen Pension verkaufte Beat Fidel Zurlaubenseine wertvolle Bibliothek im Jahr 1795 an das Kloster St. Blasien im Schwarzwald. Der neue Besitzer liess die Bücher aber vorerst in Zug. Als Beat Fidel Zurlauben 1799 starb, wurde die frisch eingesetzte Helvetische Regierung auf die umfangreiche Bibliothek aufmerksam. Mit der Begründung, dass diese für die vaterländische Geschichte wichtige Sammlung nicht ins Ausland abgehen dürfe, beschlagnahmte der Bildungsminister Philipp Albert Stapfer die ehemalige Bibliothek Zurlaubens. Das Kloster St. Blasien musste sich mit einer finanziellen Entschädigung zufrieden geben. 1803 wurde die Sammlung nach Aarau gebracht, wo man sie zur Grundlage einer Schweizer Nationalbibliothek machen wollte. Nach dem Ende der Helvetischen Republik im Jahr 1803 kaufte der Kanton Aargau die Sammlung Zurlauben. Mit der "Zurlaubiana" als Grundstock beginnt die Geschichte der Kantonsbibliothek. Das Kernstück dieser Aktensammlung bilden die so genannten "Acta Helvetica", 186 Sammelbände mit rund 35'000 Einzeldokumenten. Die einzelnen Bände der "Acta Helvetica" hat Beat Fidel Zurlauben ohne chronologische oder thematische Struktur zusammengestellt und binden lassen, was eine ergiebige Nutzung des wertvollen Quellenmaterials lange Zeit verhindert hat. Seit 1973 werden diese Dokumente im Rahmen eines langfristigen Editionsprojekts bearbeitet und mit umfangreichen Orts- und Personenregistern versehen. Bis dato (stand 2007) sind im Rahmen dieses Projekts 143 der 186 "Acta Helvetica"-Bände in Form von 68 gedruckten Text- und 17 Registerbänden herausgegeben und einer breiteren Öffentlichkeit zugänglich gemacht worden. Ab Bd. 144 sind die Texte online zugänglich. 120000 gr. Schlagworte: HelveticaBuchwesen - Bibliothekswesen [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Armageddon Rag #9 of 500 Signed Limited Editions in slipcase

      Poseidon Press and Nemo Press, New York 1983 - 1st edition/1st printing of the 500 limited editions - issued at the same time as the trade edition but both counted as 1sts since they have different ISBNs and are different sizes, bindings, numbers published, etc. This book is #9 of 500 of the signed limited 'collector's edition' with dustjacket, in publisher's red cloth-bound slipcase. The book is Fine - tight, clean, no soiling or wear and no markings other than the author's signature and number on the limitation page. The dustjacket is also Fine - price intact, clean, crisp, no fading, edgewear, tears or chips. The slipcase is Fine, with no wear or soiling. A beautiful production. If you've only read Mr. Martin's fantasy, you need to give his early sci-fi and/or horror a try - he's excellent at any combination of those two. Most of his earlier stories really can't be labeled strictly as one genre or the other - so I'll just say he's great at speculative fiction in all its varieties. If you prefer trade editions for his earlier works, look for some both signed and unsigned in our inventory. ; B&W Illustrations; 9-1/4" x 6-1/4"; 333 pages; Signed by Author [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
