        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. Loosely laid in are two items: the Monthly Newsletter, and a "Season's Greetings from the Limited Editions Club", a single cardstock sheet folded once, the message inside in green and black, two illustrations by Sol LeWitt on the front and back covers. ***CONDITION: Book is in fine condition, the leather soft and supple with no markings or wear, and free of prior owner markings; slipcase is in fine condition, strong and sturdy and completely without wear; newsletter is fine overall with some minescule edgewear; Season's Greeting card is near fine with a shallow bend to the folded edge from having been inserted into the back of the book and minesule wear to the fore-edges. ***CITATION: LEC no. 541. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please contact us 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.

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.

        Death of a Salesman, Certain Private Conversations in Two Acts and a Requiem

      New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1984. Limited Edition. Leather. Fine. Baskin, Leonard. no. 1107 of 1500, 4to - over 9.75" - 12" tall, 167 pp., signed by author and illustrator. Arthur Miller was an American playwright, essayist, and figure in the twentieth-century American Theatre. In Miller's more than thirty plays, which have won him a Pulitzer Prize and multiple Tony Awards, he puts in question "death and betrayal and injustice and how we are to account for this little life of ours." For nearly six decades, Miller has been creating characters that wrestle with power conflicts, personal and social responsibility, the repercussions of past actions, and the twin poles of guilt and hope. (N. B. info from The National Endowment for the Humanities website). ***ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR: Leonard Baskin (1922-2000) was an artistic genius whose works almost defy categorization. Eminent in sculpting, illustration, printmaking and also as a typographer and printer, he pursued multiple art forms all of which have, as an underlying thread, social consciousness and a high regard for humanity (N.B., above information from the website of the Galerie St. Etienne). Mr. Baskin founded The Gehenna Press in 1942 while at Yale University, taking his inspiration from William Blake's example as both a poet and an artist/bookmaker. ***DESCRIPTION: Bound by Gray Parrot in full rust-brown Nigerian goatskin with gilt lettering on the spine, five tissue-guarded etchings by Leonard Baskin; printed by the Wild Carrot Letterpress, set in American and English monotype Bulmer on mould-made Cartiere Enrico Magnani paper; pagination: (5) - (165), blank (166), colophon (167); 10.5" tall, signed by author Arthur Miller and illustrator Leonard Baskin, Limited Edition no. 1107 of 1500; slipcase bound in grey paper with gilt lettering on the spine. ***CONDITION: Book is in fine condition with the leather binding smooth and supple, the colour on the spine deep (not sunned), corners straight and unrubbed, solid hinges and a strong text block, clean and bright inside and entirely free of prior owner markings. The slipcase is in near fine condition, strong and sturdy with some wear to corners and opening, a bump to the top left corner and very slight bump to bottom right corner. ***CITATION: LEC no. 540. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please contact us 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.

        Sting & Trudie Styler at a party in Neasden following a Police concert at Wembley, New Year's Eve. 31/12/1984

      745 x 520mm. Giclée Print using Archival pigment inks on Hahnemüle Fine Art Pearl 285gsm paper. Limited edition of 10 numbered copies signed by the photographer. Alan Davidson is a press photographer based in London for more than 30 years, Alan has photographed the rich, the famous, the before-they-were-famous to those that have fallen from grace. Going through his vast archive, with new treasures found within the old brown manilla envelopes, reads like a who's who of the great and good (and the very bad) of London society. Cinema stars rub shoulders with pop stars, royalty with politicians. Working from the late 1960s to the present day Alan remembers the days before celebrities became surrounded by 30 young publicists and before there were 50 photographers at every event you went to, allowing him to take intimate and relaxed portraits, unlike the anodyne syndicated press shots of today.
