        Icelandic River Saga

      Canada: Saga. Hardcover. 838 pages. "Even though the geographic limitations of this work are prescribed by the boundaries of a specific Icelandic settlement, its general scope and extensive background research defy this narrow categorization. The author not only traces the history of the settlement itself, from its beginnings to recent times, he includes a great deal of material of potential interest to those who may have only tenuous links with the Icelandic cultural heritage, at the same time establishing ties between thousands of Icelandic-North Americans and their native Iceland.... The author's disciplined approach has made the writing of this book an arduous task, but at the same time his stringent demands upon himself have enhanced the scholarly merit of his work immeasurably. Virtually unaided, the author has now completed and seen through to publication a more meticulous piece of research than any previously undertaking in the field of Icelandic ethnic history." - Haraldur Bessason, Professor and Head , Department of Icelandic Language and Literature, University of Manitoba. As is common with this title, the binding of this copy is over-matched by the considerable weight of the book, resulting in the binding being relatively loose/tender but still intact. Gift greetings atop front free endpaper. Average wear. A worthy copy of this treasured reference. . Good. 1985. First Edition.

A beautiful copy. El amor en los tiempos del cólera (Love in the Time of Cholera) focuses on the relationship of three members of a love triangle over the course of time. Based on the author's parents' relationship, the plot is divided into six parts, with two sections each for the three main stages of life: youth, adulthood, and old age. This volume is part of an advanced printing of 1,000 special edition copies signed by Márquez, the proceeds of which were donated to the survivors of the 1985 Armero Tragedy in Colombia. During this catastrophic event, over 20,000 people died in the eruption of the volcano Nevado del Ruiz, including the majority of the population of Armero, a city built on the hardened remains of an earlier eruption. Márquez, a Colombian nationalist and political activist, was living outside of the country at the time of the tragedy, having fled government persecution for his support of a radical military group. Although he did not return when he was invited back in 1982, Márquez never gave up his effort to improve the political climate and quality of life in Colombia.. Signed by Author. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

Der sexuell gesättigte Text ist in Amsterdam entstanden, wo der Dichter (1939-2003) eine zeitlang gewohnt hat (Albert Cuyp Straat 132, nicht im Zentrum, nahe dem Rijksmuseum) und von Peter Zach und Heinz Trenczak besucht und gefilmt worden ist, woraus 1986 eine Filmdokumentation hergestellt wurde. Im Entstehungsjahr gab das Eisendletrio eine Gemeinschaftsaktion in der Alten Schmiede, von Trenczak gleichfalls mit der Kamera aufgenommen (Fraction Action Number One). Zum 70. Geburtstag Eisendles hat das Literaturhaus Graz eine Ausstellung veranstaltet, die einige vergleichbare Stücke gezeigt hat, allesamt von Kurt Kalb erworben, der einer jener Wiener gewesen ist, die Eisendle diese Produktionen abgenommen und ihn solcherart unterstützt haben, weil sein Auskommen trotz zahlreicher Publikationen beschränkt war. Hameth war der Wohnort Thomas Eisendles in Niederösterreich. - „Der Maler macht Gedanken zu Bildern, der Literat die Bilder zu Gedanken. Die weiße Magie der Kunst wendet sich damit gegen die schwarze Magie der Wissenschaft." Dieser Text ist unveröffentlicht.

        1985 Interpolis Chess Touramnet, Tilburg (Score Sheets)

      Interpolis, Tilburg 1985 - 14 (11 3/4" x 8 1/4") original score sheets in Tony Miles's hand. Two of the score sheets were not signed (Dzindzichashvili and Ljubojevic. . The Tilburg chess tournament was a series of very strong chess tournaments held in the Tilburg, The Netherlands. It was established in 1977 and ran continuously through 1994 under the sponsorship of Interpolis, an insurance company. Fontys Hogescholen shortly revived the tournament series from 1996 to 1998, when the last edition was played. Since 1994 there is another annual chess tournament taking place in Tilburg, which has the name De Stukkenjagers, the field is generally much weaker than the traditional Tilburg tournament. The 9th Annual Interpolis Chess Tournament held in Tilburg, the Netherlands in 1985 was a category XV event. The eight participants of the double round robin were (in order of ELO): Jan Timman (2640), Viktor Korchnoi (2630), Robert Huebner (2620), Ljubomir Ljubojevic (2615), Lev Polugaevsky (2600), Oleg Romanishin (2590), Roman Dzindzichashvili (2570), and the previous year's winner, Anthony Miles (2560). This year marked the shift in the Interpolis event at Tilburg from a round robin to a double round robin. It was during the third round game against Romanishin that Miles began to suffer extreme back pain. He was forced to take powerful painkillers and lie flat on a massage table during his games in order to participate in the remaining rounds. However, this didn't stop Miles from winning his second title in a row, sharing it this time with Korchnoi and Huebner. Condition: Some creases where once folded and light edge wear else all in very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Small Collection of Signed and Inscribed Books and Photographs

      1985 - A collection that includes three Signed and Inscribed books, two Inscribed photographs and an Autograph Note in English Signed. The books (two in wrappers, the third an embossed leatherette hardcover) are generally very good with toning and wear at the extremities; the paperbacks have additional tape repaired spines and one is also dampstained with a few scrapes. The photos are fine in wooden frames and the ANS is about very good with some light toning and tape repairs to all four corners. The books include two written by Castro himself: a 1975 second edition of *Hoy Somos Un Pueblo Entero* [*Today We Are an Entire People*] Signed and dated in the year of publication, and a 1985 first edition of *Esta Tiene Que Ser la Guerra Economica de Todo el Pueblo* [*This Must Be the Economic War of all People*] Inscribed: "Por Nuestra Patria [For Our Country] Fidel Castro." The third book is the 1951 yearbook of the University of Tampa, *Moroccan*, Inscribed on the title page on October 1955 in Spanish. Loosely translated it reads: "Thanks to Imelda and her friends of Tampa for help with our new revolution in Cuba Dr. Fidel Castro." Castro came to Tampa in November, 1955 seeking support for his revolution -- why he was asked to inscribe this yearbook is unknown. A nice collection of rare signed and inscribed material from one of the most polarizing and influential political figures of the 20th Century. In just a few items it manages to encompass his life from popular revolutionary leader and celebrity who visited the U.S. in the 1950s to attract support for his cause, to that of prime minister of the new Cuba, and later the entrenched leader of the embargo Communist nation.

        A Hollander Garland

      Newton, IA: Tamazunchale Press, 1985. 34pp. This collection of eight shaped poems is specially bound by Derek Hood in midnight blue morocco with multiple onlays of various colored leathers forming abstract, geometric patterns outlined in silver tooling. Hood's inspiration for the binding came directly from the textual shapes of the poems. Each is represented on the covers "in whole or part, using lines and simple forms." Some of the shapes are easier to discern than others. Hood writes, "I wanted to create an image from fragments of the poems as not to instantly give away their identity... Similar to the lines Hollander writes about the cracked Etruscan cup made by the potter, I wanted the images to blend into one another as you view them." The midnight blue leather echoes Hollander's imagery of shapes illuminated within darkness. In the top right corner, a moon looks on, "helping to illuminate the image by adding hints of colour to the forms." Hood's onlay design is repeated in inverse on the rear cover, and on both covers the artwork is bordered within a crooked box as a subtle reference to lines in Hollander's poem "Idea: Old Mazda Lamp, 50-100-150W." Inside the covers, the title of the book is silver-tooled in a circular design. The doublures are tan suede, as is the lining of the metal box in which the book is housed. One of the United Kingdom's most acclaimed contemporary fine bookbinders, Derek Hood was named a fellow of Designer Bookbinders and won awards in the organization's 2004 and 2005 annual competitions. Hood honed his craft working for Shepherds, Sangorski & Sutcliffe and Bayntun-Rivière before beginning his own bindery. His works are notable for their creative combination of traditional techniques and modern design. Extremely fine. T.e.g. (2 9/16 by 2 3/8; 65x60mm).

        The Cote d'Azur Triangle. Etchings and lithographs by Mark Beard.

      Vincent FitzGerald & Company, New York 1985 - Signed, Limited Edition, one of 119 copies only on Rives BFK, all signed by the author and artist, hand set in Janson, lithographs and etchings pulled by the Printmaking Workshop of Bob Blackburn. Page size 12 x 14 inches. Bound by Gerard Charriere, in cloth of vibrant yellow, with title stamped in blue within a red triangle on front cover, housed in black clamshell box by Charriere, fine. In this play by Harry Kondoleon, "A woman, her husband, and her husband's lover go up and down the Riviera only to be disappointed by the Riviera. The dullness of the Cote D'Azur reveals to these Americans the dullness and impossibility of love.they tire of one another and pursue sex partners at random until they are attacked and consumed by sea dragons." Mark Beard's brilliant illustrations of these "two dimensional and ironic" characters, in their bathing suits and sunglasses, in saturated primary colors, and his flat presentation, are overwhelming in their impact of the characters' vapidity. With illustrations such as Greek temple caryatids folding out to reveal the Cote d'Azur and paper doll players, Beard's art inexpressibly moves the viewer to the inevitable crush by the dragon of these pitiable self-centered creatures. A brilliant mixture of wit and irony with difficult and innovative printmaking techniques producing prints with highly unusual textures, especially in the final fold out, which has an effect of great richness and mystery. One of the most exciting works from the already renowned livre d'artiste oeuvre of Mark Beard. See an Image. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Convict

      Louisiana State University Press, Baton Rouge 1985 - A short story collection, one of the author's scarcest trade books, published prior to Burke's success with the award-winning Dave Robicheaux mystery series. There was a simultaneous softcover issue, which is itself moderately uncommon, but the hardcover issue, of which this is one, is legendary in its scarcity. It has been reported that only 500 copies were bound up in cloth, most of which -- coming as they did from a university press publisher not widely distributed in the book trade -- would have been earmarked directly for libraries. Signed by the author. Fine in a fine dust jacket. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
