        Homage: Twelve Prints by Fritz Eichenberg [SIGNED]; Dedicated to: Lao-Tsu, Michelangelo, Erasmus, Rembrandt, Goya, Beethoven, Daumier, Lincoln, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Gandhi, Dorothy Day

      [Place of publication not identified]: [Publisher not identified], 1984. Limited Edition. Folio in a case. Fine. Eichenberg, Fritz. No. 60 of 350, signed by the artist, folio - over 12" to 15" tall, 12 prints in separate folders. Fritz Eichenberg (1901-1990), born in Germany and raised between the wars, was working as an illustrator for Germany's biggest publishing empire when Hitler came to power in 1933, and quickly decided to immigrate from Germany with his family, settling in New York after a brief stay in Mexico. His spiritual journeys took him from being raised in a non-religious Jewish household to the practice of Zen Buddhist meditation, then joining the Religious Society of Friends in 1940. Though he remained a Quaker until his death, Mr. Eichenberg was also associated with Catholic charity work through his friendship with Dorothy Day, whom met through publishing. His work reflected his inner compassion and social conscience, often depicting scenes with elements of spiritual and emotional conflict, fantasy, or social satire. This work, "Homage", is a series of twelve prints of people who we can only assume he held in high esteem, including spiritual leaders such as Lao-Tsu (the founder of philosophical Taoism) and his friend Dorothy Day, political leaders who acted as the conscience of their nations such as Lincoln and Gandhi, and great philosophers, authors and artists. The images are haunting: the one of Lincoln depicts a scene of an African-American man and woman being hunted by two men with rifles and dogs; the print of Gandhi has him praying in the foreground, with a crowd of his countrymen huddling behind him, above all looms the British Empire. An inspirational series, worthy of deliberation - "Homage" was aptly named. ***DESCRIPTION: Twelve folio prints, unbound, each in its own separate wallet; each print is numbered and signed in pencil. The images measure roughly 10.25" tall by 8" wide on sheets that are 13" tall by 10" wide. The sheet that serves as a title page simply states the title and the personages included, no publisher is identified, several of the prints are copyrighted 1984, others are undated. Contained in a supplied case covered in dark grey cloth, paper labels with gilt lettering on front and spine. ***CONDITION: Fine throughout, each print individually fine, as is each wallet; the case is new. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply; please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        Ficciones [with Newsletter and Holiday Greeting from the LEC]

      [New York]: The Limited Editions Club / Printed at The Anthoensen Press, 1984. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine. LeWitt, Sol. No. 165 of 1500, 8vo - over 7.75" - 9.75" tall, 341 p., signed by illustrator. Argentine author Jorge Luis Borges exerted a strong influence on the direction of literary fiction through his genre-bending metafictions, essays, and poetry. Borges was a founder, and principal practitioner, of postmodernist literature, a movement in which literature distances itself from life situations in favor of reflection on the creative process and critical self-examination. Anthony Kerrigan, who wrote the introduction to this version, wrote, "The work of Jorge Luis Borges is a species of international literary metaphor. He knowledgeably makes a transfer of inherited meanings from Spanish and English, French and German, and sums up a series of analogies, of confrontations, of appositions in other nations' literatures. His Argentinians act out Parisian dramas, his Central European Jews are wise in the ways of the Amazon, his Babylonians are fluent in the paradigms of Babel." (N. B. info from The Poetry Foundation and the Introduction by Kerrigan). ***ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR: Sol LeWitt earned a place in the history of art for his leading role in the Conceptual movement. His belief in the artist as a generator of ideas was instrumental in the transition from the modern to the postmodern era. Conceptual art, expounded by LeWitt as an intellectual, pragmatic act, added a new dimension to the artist's role that was distinctly separate from the romantic nature of Abstract Expressionism. LeWitt's work ranged from sculpture, painting, and drawing to almost exclusively conceptual pieces that existed only as ideas or elements of the artistic process itself (Info from The Art Story web site). ***DESCRIPTION: Bound in full black cowhide; blindstamped lettering on the spine and a large rectangle on the cover; set in linotype Cloister Bold on Mohawk wove paper; illustrated by Sol LeWitt with silk-screens on Somerset Satin paper; pagination: (i) - xxxii, (1) - 306, blanks (307, 308), colophon (309); 8" tall; slipcase is bound in black paper.

        The Far Side of the World.

      Collins. 1984. 8vo. Original cloth; text block a little browned as usual, spine of wrapper very slightly sunned, otherwise a very nice copy in price-clipped dust-jacket. First edition, first impression, in the second state dust jacket as usual. The publisher initially printed the incorrect price on the jacket, and this error was resolved by clipping the jacket and applying a sticker for £9.95, as in this copy. Very few survived with the original price. An attractive copy of one of the most difficult Aubrey titles to find in nice condition, with only the very slightest loss of the bright red to the spine of the wrapper.
