        The Polar Express

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1985.. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1985. First edition. Oblong quarto, original cloth. Signed by the author who has added a drawing of a reindeer. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. The Polar Express "clearly established the illustrator-author as one of the premier creators of picture books in 20th-century children's literature. The Polar Express, immediately taken to heart by children and adults alike, was a phenomenon in children's publishing. It won the Caldecott Medal for illustration, appeared on the New York Times best seller list, sold more than a million copies in its first five years of publication and achieved the status of a contemporary classic… Rich panel illustrations, in blues and purples, are accompanied by a narrative that achieves an exceptional sense of story… Van Allsburg touches a universal chord— faith. The simple truth of the story is perceptively conveyed through a felicitous blend of pictures and narrative; the combination radiates with childlike wonder while reverberating with mysterious intensity" (Silvey, 660).

        INGEBORG PSALTER * Limited Facsimile Edition * Manuscript Ms. 9 Musee Conde (Chantilly, Fance) * Facsimile Edition: 1 volume * Commentary: 1 volume * Mint copy

      Adeva (Akademische Druck- und Verlagsanstalt), Graz - 1985. THE INGEBORG PSALTER - A "picture book" of biblical history * * * When the French king Philip II Augustus (1165-1223) made his wife Ingeborg, Princess of Denmark (the Ingeborg Psalter is named after her) this present, the love connection between the two was still intact. A short time later, Philip repudiated his wife, however - from still unexplained reasons. * * * The Psalter is famous not because of this story, but - created shortly before 1200 in Northern France - is regarded as style icon of the era of the Gothic. With its 51 (!) full-page miniatures painted on a gold background and numerous historiated initials it is a stunning "picture book" of biblical history. Today the manuscript is kept as Ms. olim 1695 9 at the Musee Conde, Chantilly. * * * Title: Ingeborg Psalter * Owner / Shelf mark: Ms. 9 Musee Conde (Chantilly, Fance) * Alternative Titles: Psautier d'Ingeburge * Theme: Liturgical Texts * Date: around 1195 * Origin: Northern France * Format: 30.4 × 20.4 cm * Extent: 400 pages * Language: Latin * Content: 150 psalms and other liturgical texts, calendar * Artists / Schools: Two unknown illuminators * Illustrations: 24 pages with miniatures (generally two scenes, one above the other) * Patron: The manuscript was commissioned for Ingeborg of Denmark, who became Queen of France through her marriage to Philip II (reigned 1180-1223). It may have been commissioned either by bishop Stephen of Tournai (1132-1203, consecrated bishop in 1192) , or by Eleanor of Vernandois, Countess of Beaumont-sur-Oise (1152-1213) . If Eleanor was the patron, the psalter may have been produced at the Cistercian nunnery of Fervaques near Saint Quentin * Former Owners / Provenance: After Ingeborg's death, the psalter probably passed to the royal family, which still owned it in the 14th century. It was among the possessions of King Louis IX (Saint Louis, reigned 1226-1270), and there is evidence that it was in the castle of Vincennes until 1418. After that, the trail goes cold. In the 17th century, the manuscript resurfaced in England. Later, it was in the collection of a certain Count de Lignac; from there, it passed to the Duke of Aumale in 1867 and came into the possession of the Musee Conde in Chantilly in 1892 * * * Facsimile Edition * Publisher / Year: Adeva (Akademische Druck- und Verlagsanstalt), Graz - 1985 * Limited Edition: 500 copies * Volumes: Facsimile Edition: 1 volume * Binding: Leather binding * Condition: Mint copy.

        Francis Bacon

      London: The Tate Gallery / Thames and Hudson (1985) - First Edition. Quarto. A fabulous association copy, INSCRIBED by Francis Bacon to R.B. Kitaj: "To R.B. Kitaj / with very best / wishes / Francis Bacon." Special gilt-debossed edition in boards, published for promotional use by the exhibition's corporate underwriter Global Asset Management Limited. Catalogue for Bacon's second retrospective at The Tate Gallery, London, in 1985, which subsequently traveled to the Staatsgalerie, Stuttgart, and the Nationalgalerie, Berlin. Fellow London-based figurative artists, Kitaj and Bacon were both represented by Marlborough Gallery and forged a close friendship that extended into a strong artistic kinship, with Bacon calling the younger Kitaj the most promising painter of his generation. Alas, Bacon died two years prior to Kitaj's own disastrous retrospective at The Tate, one of the most critically vilified shows in the venue's history, which irreparably damaged the artist's career and reputation. Catalogue features 125 color and black-and-white plates of Bacon's masterpieces, including his famous series of "screaming popes," self-portraits, and paintings of longtime partner George Dyer, with twenty-one gatefolds. With a foreword by Alan Bowness, essays by Dawn Ades and Andrew Forge, an exhibition checklist, a chronology, and a bibliography. Fine in blind-stamped cloth boards, with the publisher's original acetate overlay. No dust jacket, as issued. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Forum Katholische Theologie - Vierteljahresschrift für das Gesamtgebiet der katholischen Theologie (11 komplette Jahrgänge - gebunden) Jg. 1 (1985) - 11 (1995).

      Pattloch Verlag 1985 - 1995.. je Jahrgang ca. 350 Seiten; Gebundene Ausgabe. Forum Katholische Theologie ist eine katholische theologische Zeitschrift. Die 1985 gegründete Zeitschrift ist damit eine eher junge Gründung im Feld der wissenschaftlich-theologischen Zeitschriften. Sie ist freilich, von Seiten des damaligen Herausgeberkreises (Leo Scheffczyk, Kurt Krenn und Anton Ziegenaus) die Fortsetzung der seit 1950 bestehenden "Münchener Theologischen Zeitschrift". Die herausragende Persönlichkeit unter den Herausgebern war bis zu seinem Tode (8.12.2005) Leo Scheffczyk, der 2001 von Papst Johannes Paul II. wegen seiner theologischen Verdienste zum Kardinal ernannt wurde. Dieser Name steht für die Qualität und die Kirchlichkeit der Zeitschrift, die von einem klaren katholischen Standpunkt aus die gegenwärtigen theologischen Entwicklungen beurteilt. Die hier angebotenen Bände/ Jahrgänge stammen aus einer teilaufgelösten wissenschaftlichen Bibliothek und tragen die entsprechenden Kennzeichnungen (Rückenschild, Instituts-Stempel...). Der Buchzustand ist ansonsten ordentlich und dem Alter entsprechend gut; KOMPLETTPREIS für 11 Bände/ Jahrgänge; bei Versand ins Ausland erfragen Sie bitte zuerst die Versandkosten!!
