        Love

      Dallas: Somesuch Press, 1983. 24pp. This copy features a romantic designer binding by the British bookbinder Nicky Oliver and is also inscribed by Stanley Marcus, noted miniature book collector and proprietor of the Somesuch Press, to his friend and fellow microbibliophile Donn Sanford. A collection of love poems by Shakespeare, Chaucer, and Browning, illustrated with two United States "Love" stamps and a British stamp in honor of St. Valentine's Day. Printed by the Feathered Serpent Press in black with vignettes and ornaments in bright red. Inspired by the hints of red, small illustrations, and swirling floral motifs in the text, Oliver bound the book in fair goatskin that she painted and printed with pieces of floral lace dipped in coral-hued leather dye. The covers have a subtle sheen, and in the artist's statement she notes that "Gold foil was stencilled onto the surface of the leather and distressed to highlight the lace design." Gilt-tooled dots also trace some of the lines of the pattern and decorate all three pink edges of the book. Pieces of lace and oil-based inks were used to relief-print the pink, leather-jointed endpapers, which were also accented with subtle gilt-tooling. Housed in a handsome black quarter-morocco box adorned with decorated leather strips matching the binding and a gilt-titled pink lettering piece to the spine. Oliver's artistic background is in illustration and design, and she seeks to incorporate elements of these into her bindings. She was named a Licentiate of Designer Bookbinders in 2010 and has won several awards in their recent competitions. These achievements include "the Silver Triple" in the 2010 competition, with first prize for set book, open choice book, and the Edgar Mansfield Medal for best book. Extremely fine. (Bradbury, p. 281). (2 7/8 by 2 5/8; 73x67mm).

        Impronte.

      1983 - Nata a Cadine nel 1919, artista poliedrica e raffinata gallerista, Ines Fedrizzi è stata un punto di riferimento per molti protagonisti dell’arte contemporanea. Legata al Mart da un decennale sodalizio, ha voluto nel 2003 donare al museo gran parte della sua produzione che rimane oggi un unicum per originalità ed estro creativo.\rIl suo percorso artistico fu sempre una continua esplorazione di diverse tecniche e gesti pittorici: dalle prime sperimentazioni del dripping al frottage, con le grandi opere del periodo "improntale" fino alle sue celebri "tavole della memoria" degli anni ’90. La sua ricerca, più che intima e introspettiva, era rivolta all’indagine fenomenologica dell’universo, ricostruendo sulla tela, attraverso il colore e la luce, geometrie e ritmi della natura.\rA Ines Fedrizzi va inoltre riconosciuto il ruolo fondamentale di animatrice culturale della scena artistica trentina, per aver contribuito in maniera fondamentale a stimolare e far crescere un’intera generazione di artisti tra gli Settanta e Ottanta. Lo stesso Aldo Schmid fece parte del gruppo di artisti apprezzato da Ines Fedrizzi e poi presentato nella sua galleria "Argentario" a Trento. Formato: Olio su tela di cm 100x100. Buono, ordinari segni d’uso e del tempo.

        An Archive of 20th Century Sado-Masochism: Letters to The Black Knight (1975-1983)

      [Northampton, Massachusetts] 1983 - A remarkable collection of nearly 30 love letters (including five photographs) sent by a Baptist minister from Massachusetts to his elder lover: "The Black Knight." The letters document in graphic and loving detail illustrated their illicit Sado-Masochistic affair that began in the spring of 1975 and continued through to the spring of 1982. All but one has the original mailing envelope, near fine. Most of the letters are handwritten in the pastor's attractive calligraphic hand, including two elaborately illustrated by him. All are well-written, indicative of a highly educated man from an established Dutch-American family, and in nearly all of the letters he writes with unconstrained passion of his insatiable love, spiritual and physical, and of his desperate need to be sexually enslaved and brutalized by his "Almighty Regent . my Black Knight of infamous mystic stirrings." Included are two early albumen prints (family portraits), and three contemporary color photographs taken at the height of their affair, showing the pastor's Church, the pastor and the elderly Black Knight, and the Black Knight seated in his apartment. As it appears likely that the pastor was married at the time of the affair (he fathered children, and played an active leadership role in The American Baptist Churches of Massachusetts throughout his 35-year ministry), the names of both men have been withheld.

        The order of the genes C, Sh and Wx in Zea Mays with reference to a cytologically known point in the chromosome. [Bound as issued with:] A correlation of cytological and genetical crossing-over in Zea Mays.

      First edition, the very rare offprint issue, of these landmark papers, bound back-to-back in a single offprint, which describe the "revolutionary" discovery of 'jumping genes'. The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for 1983 was awarded to McClintock "for her discovery of mobile genetic elements" (nobelprize.org). "Beyond any question, this is one of the truly great experiments of modern biology, and the conclusion-that pairing chromosomes heteromorphic for two or more regions exchange parts at the same time that they exchange genes assigned to these regions-will doubtless continue to stimulate as much research during the next as they have during the 25 years following its publication" (Gabriel & Fogel, pp. 267-8). No copy of this offprint listed in OCLC.<br/><br/> "Some of the most profound genetic discoveries have been made with the help of various model organisms that are favored by scientists for their widespread availability and ease of maintenance and proliferation. One such model is Zea mays (maize), particularly those plants that produce variably colored kernels. Because each kernel is an embryo produced from an individual fertilization, hundreds of offspring can be scored on a single ear, making maize an ideal organism for genetic analysis. Indeed, maize proved to be the perfect organism for the study of transposable elements (TEs), also known as "jumping genes," which were discovered during the middle part of the twentieth century by American scientist Barbara McClintock. McClintock's work was revolutionary in that it suggested that an organism's genome is not a stationary entity, but rather is subject to alteration and rearrangement-a concept that was met with criticism from the scientific community at the time. However, the role of transposons eventually became widely appreciated, and McClintock was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1983 in recognition of this and her many other contributions to the field of genetics. <br/><br/> "Barbara McClintock began her scientific career at Cornell University, where she pioneered the study of cytogenetics - a new field in the 1930s - using maize as a model organism. Indeed, the marriage of cytology and genetics, became official in 1931, when McClintock and graduate student Harriet Creighton provided the first experimental proof that genes were physically positioned on chromosomes by describing the crossing-over phenomenon and genetic recombination. Although Thomas Hunt Morgan was the first person to suggest the link between genetic traits and the exchange of genetic material by chromosomes, 20 years elapsed before his ideas were scientifically proven, largely due to limitations in cytological and experimental techniques. McClintock's own innovative cytogenetic techniques allowed her to confirm Morgan's ideas, and these techniques are numbered among her greatest contributions to science" (Pray & Zhaurova, p. 169). <br/><br/> The two papers were published back-to-back in the journal and, unusually, together in the same offprint. The paper by Creighton and McClintock refers twice to the "preceding paper" without a citation, assuming the reader will read the two together. Creighton's doctoral dissertation under McClintock's mentorship provided the basis for their landmark joint paper, which was unique in merging cytological with genetic data. The companion paper by McClintock set the essential stage with data on the cytological and genetic features that Creighton applied. <br/><br/> M. Gabriel & S.

        1 p. ALS, IN ORIGINAL AIR MAIL ENVELOPE, TO DAVID GOTHARD, CO-FOUNDER OF THE RIVERSIDE STUDIOS, LONDON.

      8 October 1983 - 1 pp. ALS, 200 x 150 mm, on stiff card, to the verso of which Hals' painting of Hamlet, cut from a magazine, has been affixed. Envelope dated 8 October 1983. Fine. In both form and content, a wonderfully elegant letter of refusal. Gothard had asked Joan Littlewood to come to the Riverside as a guest producer: 'J.L to D.G -- Sorry for delayed reaction to yr kindly letters -- situation here so unstable that I have only this day found peace to open the letters which have been waiting, in a menacing pile -- for months. I am flattered by yr invitation -- but as a guest producer I would be a disaster. It's not my game. I have no feeling of obligation towards T[heatre].R[oyal]. E.15. I couldn't bear the place, it was impossible when we moved in -- + couldn't be improved. Delighted with yr success and trust that health and harness will hold. And here is yr Franz Hals award. Joan.' East 15 drama school grew out of Littlewood's groundbreaking Theatre Workshop, now most often remembered for its premiere productions of Oh! What A Lovely War and Shelagh Delaney's A Taste of Honey, both later filmed. By the time this letter was written Littlewood had left England and was living in France with Baron Philippe de Rothschild (whose autobiography she ghosted). The letter is written in a riot of random capitals and lower cases, all in Littlewood's beautiful hand -- even the envelope's wording has been underlined in alternate red and blue double rules.

      New York: Congdon and Weed. (1983). First. First edition. Fine in pictorial papercovered boards, without dustwrapper. One of six advance copies misbound by the publisher in decorated paper over boards (instead of decorated cloth); production was immediately stopped and publication was delayed. The publisher recalled two of the copies, the other four apparently circulated before they were recalled. The papercovered boards appear to use the same or very similar paper that was eventually used in the dustwrapper. This copy with a 1983 Gotham Book Mart catalogue description laid-in describing the misbinding, and a Gorey-illustrated, Gotham Book Mart bookmark. This issue not noted in Toledano. Rare. .

        Lambert-Index (4 Bände KOMPLETT) - Bd. 1/ 2: Stellenindex zu Johnann Heinrich Lambert "Neues Organon I/ II/ Bd. 3/ 4: Stellenindex zu Johann Heinrich Lambert "Anlage zur Architectonic I/ II". Forschungen und Materialien zur deutschen Aufklärung: Abteilung 3, Indices;

      Stuttgart- Bad Cannstatt: Frommann-Holzboog 1983 ff... je Band ca. 400 Seiten; Gebundene Ausgabe. Bei dem Neuen Organon und der Architectonic handelt es sich um die beiden philosophischen Hauptwerke Lamberts. Sie zählen zu den einflußreichsten Werken des 18. Jahrhunderts und bilden zugleich ein wichtiges Bindeglied zwischen Wolff und Kant, der 1770 in Anlehnung an das Neue Organon statt der Kritik der reinen Vernunft eine eigene Phänomenologie schreiben wollte. Nicht weniger stark ist der Einfluß, den Lamberts Architectonic auf Kant und dessen Begriffsbildung ausgeübt hat. Sie führt die Fragestellungen der Wolffschen Ontologie weiter und stellt sie zugleich in einen umfassenderen Zusammenhang. Die vorliegenden Indices möchten dazu beitragen, die Philosophie Lamberts besser zu erschließen und ihren Einfluß einer exakten Überprüfung zugänglich zu machen. Sie enthalten zunächst jeweils in einem Hauptindex das gesamte Sprachgut und daneben mehrere Sonderindices. Dazu gehören neben einem Personenindex insbesondere ein Index des lateinischen Sprachguts, der bei dem Mangel an einschlägigen Lexika für das Latein des 18. Jahrhunderts eine wichtige Ergänzung bietet. Die hier angebotenen Bände befinden sich in einem ordentlich erhaltenen Zustand; KOMPLETTPREIS für 4 Bände; bei Versand ins Ausland erfragen Sie bitte zuerst die Versandkosten;

Anglesea states, "Parker's paintings are quite unique as a contribution to nineteenth-century Irish Ornithology and with their Irish topographical backgrounds, for a collection of great value." Including notes on plates and a complete list of original watercolours. Raised bands, black leather spine labels printed in gilt. Three quarter brown calf, marbled boards, raised bands decorated in gilt. Fine in fine matching marbled slipcase. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
