An original miniature original painting today, would cost $600 plus just for the remarque. The print done in 1985 is of greater value in it&#39;s on right as one of his earlier LE prints., The artist&#39;s proof also included an original painted Cardinal&#39;s head at the bottom centre and initialed by Marc Barrie, "The Northern Cardinal (male and female) takes away the bleakness of those long dark winter days and lifts my spirits everytime I see one. It&#39;s my favourite bird to paint." Marc Barrie is recognized as one of Canada&#39;s finest artists in the field of high realism nature art. Barrie was born with an innate artistic gift, which he constantly develops through hard work and determination. "I am entirely self taught, and have had no formal art education. I learned by my own mistakes, and by being determined to make each painting better than the one before. It is an endless education and journey, and each painting always teaches me something new." Marc has been a professional artist for over 30 years, and has achieved international recognition from nature admirers and art collectors alike. His original artworks and many published limited edition prints are valued in private and corporate collections in over thirty countries around the world.

Green, each copy numbered and signed by both artists, Virgil Thomson and Maurice Grosser. Lithographs pulled at the Printmaking Workshop by Jennifer Lynch, Agnes Murray and Holly Sears, music in Virgil Thomson&#39;s hand printed by John Hutcheson from negatives made by Gail Alt, letterpress in handset Garamond by Dan Keleher at Wild Carrot Letterpress, calligraphy by Jerry Kelly. Page size: 17 1/2 x 14 inches. Bound: loose in clamshell box of blue Tussah Silk and Ganryo Hikizome paper by Gerard Charriere and Carol Joyce, title in silver stamped on black label. & A truly distinguished work from Vincent FitzGerald & Company, a collaboration between the composer Virgil Thomson and his partner, the painter Maurice Grosser. The left side of each two- page spread is the music, in Thomson&#39;s hand (at age 90), and on the right side is one of Grosser&#39;s first lithographs, done at age 83. The two friends collaborated before on Thomson&#39;s operas, and these portraits reflect mutual friendships of such people as Theodate Johnson, who sang Thomson&#39;s operas, and the writer Jane Bowles. The musical portraits were written at various times from 1929, and have all been newly rewritten for piano for this edition. Grosser&#39;s black and white lithograph portraits, so strong and fresh, are not only a perfect complement to the music but evoke very clear musical tones of their own. Published on Thomson&#39;s 90th birthday celebration, it reflects a truly an inspired collaboration and is a magnificent book. <br>See an <A HREF= >Image.</A><br>

        A Collection of Franz Wright Poems and Letters to a Fellow Poet

      1985-1992. A collection of 36 Typescript and Holograph Poems from Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Franz Wright, with nearly half of the poems Signed or Inscribed, along with five Autographed and Typed Letters Signed to a fellow poet. Wright, the son of poet James Wright, won the Pulitzer Prize in 2004 for his book, Walking to Martha&#39;s Vineyard, matching his father who won the prize in the same category in 1972, and making them the only father and son to accomplish this feat. The poems in this collection were written between 1985 and 1992 during which time Franz Wright published several books. A great many of these poems were published in those books but appear here in an earlier form with alternate verses and different titles. Several of the poems could not be identified and may be unpublished.The accompanying letters sent to his correspondent are surprisingly genial and optimistic considering Wright&#39;s tendency toward darker themes in his work. In them, he encourages his correspondents writing, speaks about his own love of poetry, comments on one of his father&#39;s poems, and talks about his recently established sobriety. Nearly all the poems and letters are in near fine or better condition though a few have a bit of wear to their extremities.A remarkable and notable collection of poetry and letters from this Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, giving new insight into his life, his relationships, and his writing process. .

        L&#39;Oeil Du Jazz [The Eye Of Jazz]

      Paris: Filipacchi, 1985 SIGNED, dated and inscribed by the book&#39;s designer at the title page, " to Michael Cuscuna, friendship always, Francis Paudras, 86". The true first edition, preceding the first English language edition by four years, a collection of Leonard&#39;s masterful , near-iconic b&w photographs which celebrate with dignity the great musicians of jazz. A gifted French designer and artist, Paudras (1935 - 1997 ) is perhaps best known for his book ,To Bird With Love, which he designed, published and co-authored with Charlie Parker&#39;s widow, Chan Parker; a lavish, limited edition photo biography of and homage to the great altoist , highly prized by collectors, it is generally considered one of the most beautiful of all jazz books. In 1986 Paudras also produced a very handsome book on Bud Powell, La Danse Des Infidels, which drew heavily on his close personal relationship with the great pianist, to whom he was extraordinarily devoted, and for whom he acted as de facto guardian and unofficial manager during Powell&#39;s troubled stay in Paris during the late 50&#39;s, and early 60&#39;s. The book&#39;s inscribee,Michael Cuscuna, is a Grammy Award winning pop, soul and jazz record producer and co-founder of Mosaic Records,a company which for more than 25 years has set the standard for limited edition jazz reissue sets, with some 200 releases many of which are highly prized by collectors. Cuscuna is also an esteemed jazz discographer, notably for Blue Note Records where as a consultant, producer and reissue specialist, he has overseen the release of much valuable archival material. Near fine in publisher&#39;s black cloth, top board is somewhat bowed, else near fine tight, clean, unmarked in a like dust jacket, unclipped, touch of wear to head of spine and panel edges, flaps are lightly curled. A very uncommon book signature with a grat jazz association. J1523.. Signed. True First Edition. About Near Fine/Near Fine.
