        Aldus Manutius and the development of Greek script & type in the fifteenth century.

      Sandy Hook, CT: Chiswick Book Shop, 1985. Folio (33.5 cm; 13.25"). xiv, 115, [9 (5 blank)] pp., 4 samples tipped in. In his classic 1900 work Printing of Greek in the Fifteenth Century (Oxford Press), Robert Proctor held Aldus' Greek type in contempt, much preferring that of the Complutensian Polyglot Bible. Nicolas Barker here reexamines the matter of Aldus' choice of Greek types and puts a different spin on it, showing the design of the types "was influenced not only by contemporary scribal practice, but also by the expectations of his customers, accustomed to reading secular literature in manuscripts of very complex visual texture written in these cursive scripts" (Snipes).    In addition to presenting Barker's highly illustrated study, the volume has tipped in => a sample leaf printed in each of the four distinct Greek types developed by the press: From the first Aldine editions of Aristotle, 1497; Crastonus' Dictionarium Graecum, 1497; Euripides, 1503; and the Septuagint, 1518.    Printed in an edition of 500 copies, with "design and calligraphy by Stephen Harvard, printed and bound by Meriden-Stinehour Press," this bears => a title-page in red with white calligraphic lettering.    => Both the Euripides and the Septuagint leaves have interesting contemporary marginalia.    Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard (sans indicia).         Disbound and Dispersed 184. Snipes, "Aldus Manutius and the Development of Greek Script and Type in the Fifteenth Century," a book review of Barker's book, in Renaissance Quarterly, XVI, 1, pp. 120–22. Publisher's red cloth stamped in gold, in a matching red cloth open-back slipcase. Near fine. => Handsome and instructive.

        Die cronycke van Hollandt, Zeelandt en[de] Vrieslant beghinnende va[n] Adams tiden tot die geboerte ons heren Jh[es]u[m] voertgaende tot de[n] jare M.CCCCC. ende Xvij.Leiden, Jan Seversz., 18 August 1517. Folio. With the title-page printed in red and black with a large woodcut between different woodcut borders, and 239 woodcuts in text, including 121 woodcut portraits. Black blind-tooled goatskin (1637), with gold-tooled title and binding date on side.

      Adams A2252; J. van Gelder & I.Jost, Jan de Bisschop and his icones and paradigmata (1985), pp. 196-211; Jeudwine, p. 253, and no. 388. First edition of the famous and beautifully illustrated Dutch national chronicle, known as the "Divisiekroniek", because of its publication in 32 devisions. The chronicle contains various narratives of historical, ecclesiastical and hagiographical nature and is profusely and beautifully illustrated with woodcuts of various size and style. Only ten of the woodcuts were specially designed and cut for the "Divisiekroniek": apparently the Leyden printer Jan Severszoon used whatever he happened to have in stock. Some of the woodcuts are ascribed to Lucas van Leyden, Jacob Cornelisz. van Oostsanen and Cornelis Engebrechtsz. Of particular interest is the black goatskin binding with gold-tooling on the front side and the spine. There are 21 other volumes known with similar bindings, all with the date "1637" on the side and a shelf mark on the spine, with a number at the top (here: "102") and a capital letter at the bottom (here: "E"). The highest number so far is "158", the letters run from A to F. Professor Jan van Gelder has shown that the volumes originally belonged to the art-collector Pieter Spiering Silfvercrona (d. 1652), who was responsible for the uniform black leather bindings.With an owner's inscription on the verso side of flyleaf by the Dutch engraver Frans Koerten (1603-1668), and owner's inscription on pastedown by Van Meurs (?), who bought the present copy at the auction of the library of Johannes Enschedé. Very good copy, without the often lacking index of four leaves and only slightly browned. Binding rubbed along the extremities, slightly damaged on spine.

        [Maquette pour un livre de photographies encore inédit à propos des travaux du Grand Louvre :] Photos [prises] de janvier à août 1985.

      1985. Photo. Très bon. Couverture rigide. Signé par l'auteur. Maquette. 1 album de format 33 x 28 cm, contenant, après un titre composé au letraset, 76 photographies originales (12 en couleurs) en tirage argentique d'époque au format 18 x 24 cm (environ) contrecollées, dont : François Huguier : 48 tirages dont 5 en couleurs ; Georges Tourdjman : 24 tirages dont 7 en couleurs ; Claude Bricage : 4 tirages. La plupart des photographies portent au dos le cachet de l'artiste, parfois sa signature. La première est signée par Françoise Huguier sous le tirage, les autres tirages de Françoise Huguier portent son monogramme. Les photographies de Georges Tourdjman sont monogrammées, datées et parfois légendées de sa main (sauf pour 7 d'entre elles, monogrammées de la main de Françoise Huguier). Françoise Huguier a écrit en toutes lettres le nom de Claude Bricage sous les tirages de celui-ci. On joint, dans une pochette à part, un ensemble de photographies à caractère documentaire sur le même sujet (11 en couleurs par le studio Patrice Astier, 5 par Georges Tourdjman dont une en double et deux vues artistiques, deux vues d'avion en couleurs). Projet de livre inabouti de la part des trois photographes. On y voit notamment la simulation de la pyramide avec des câbles dans la cour Napoléon (les tirages de Claude Bricage), d'impressionnantes excavations, des échaffaudages improbables, une sculpture équestre prenant les airs, des ouvriers travaillant à la restauration, des fouilles archéologiques dans le jardin des Tuileries, et la vie tentant de suivre son cours dans la partie du musée épargnée par les travaux. Important ensemble documentaire. La plupart des photographies semblent inédites et non exploitées par les photographes. Quelques menus accidents à quelques tirages..

        Origin

      Dorchester, Mass; Kyoto, Japan; Boston; and Orono, ME, 1985. 81 vols. 8vo. Original staple-bound colored paper or card wrappers. Some shelfwear to first series, occasional soiling to covers, but overall near fine. 81 vols. 8vo. Nearly complete set of Origin magazine. A large, nearly complete set of this important magazine of post-war poetry and poetics edited and published by Cid Corman (1924-2004), spanning four decades and comprising 75 issues plus six duplicates. Published in five distinct series, Origin began in the 1950s by showcasing the work of Charles OLSON, Robert CREELEY, William BRONK, Robert DUNCAN, Denise LEVERTOV and Paul BLACKBURN among others. Corman continued to publish the magazine over the following three decades, featuring work by the likes of Louis ZUKOFSKY, Gary SNYDER, Michael McCLURE, Clayton ESHLEMAN, Armand SCHWERMER, Theodore ENSLIN, and Ron SILLIMAN, as well as devoting space to translations of the poets of Europe and Japan, Corman's adoptive home. Of special significance is the work of Lorine NIEDECKER (1903-1970), the Wisconsin poet associated with the Objectivist movement whose compelling body of work is among the most undeserverdly obscure in 20th century American poetry. Corman and Origin played a crucial role in reviving interest in the work of Neidecker; Issue 2 of the third series, July 1966, is devoted to Niedecker, and her work appears in numerous other editions throughout the series. The set lacks only five issues from the first series, with the second through fifth series complete, and includes six duplicate copies of various issues. A breakdown of the set by series is as follows: *First series, 15 (of 20) issues, without issues 8, 11, 14, 17, and 19. With 2 duplicate issues (3 & 12). Spring 1951-Winter 1957. *Second series: 14 issues, complete. April 1961-July 1964. *Third series: 20 issues, complete. April 1966-January 1971. *Fourth series: 20 issues, complete. October 1977-July 1982. *Fifth series: 6 issues, complete. Fall 1983-Fall 1985 with four duplicate copies of issue four.

        Lonesome Dove

      New York: Simon & Schuster, 1985. First edition of the author's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by Larry McMurtry on the title page. Fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket with a small closed tear. A very sharp example. A love story, an adventure, an American epic, Lonesome Dove embraces all the West- legend and fact, heroes and outlaws, whores and ladies, Indians and settlers. Set in the nineteenth century, it is the story of a cattle drive from Texas to Montana and much more. It is a drive that represents for everybody involved not only a daring, even a foolhardy adventure, but a part of the American Dream- the attempt to carve out the last remaining wilderness a new life. "Everything about Lonesome Dove feels true . . . These are real people, and they are still larger than life" (Nicholas Lemann, The New York Times Book Review). Both John Milius and John Huston each attempted to adapt the novel into a feature film before Suzanne De Passe and Bill Wittliff decided to adapt the novel as a mini-series. It was then made into the four-part TV miniseries, which won seven Emmy Awards and was nominated for twelve others. It spawned four follow-up miniseries, Return to Lonesome Dove, Streets of Laredo, Dead Man's Walk, and Comanche Moon, and two television series, Lonesome Dove: The Series and Lonesome Dove: The Outlaw Years.

        LLull-Tàpies EDITION ORIGINALE Grand papier ENVOI AUTOGRAPHE

      Barcelona: Daniel Lelong|& Carles Taché, 1985. Fine. Daniel Lelong & Carles Taché, Barcelona 1985, 36x50cm, en feuilles sous coffret. - The very rare first edition of the most important livre d'artiste executed by Antoni Tàpies. One of 120 numbered copies on vélin d'Arche paper, justified by the artist by hand on the colophon, with 25 original engravings, two signed and justified in pencil by Antoni Tapiès ; the only printing after 45 exemplaires de tête with a monotype. This copy retains its offprint of the text in French. Moving autograph inscription signed by Antoni Tapiès with a pencil drawing from the artist's hand - literally! - on which is superimposed a heart, to his close friend and the greatest expert on his work, the writer and essayist Georges Raillard. Raymond Lull, a 13th century Catalan philosopher and poet, considered the first great Catalan writer, had a major influence on the thinking and work of Antoni Tàpies, who had a number of old and significant works by the mystical thinker in his library. It was in 1973 that Tàpies decided to undertake this monumental work, which he only finished in 1985; it is, at the same time, an homage to a fellow-countryman by a spiritual heir and an examination of their shared metaphysical explorations. This affinity across the centuries between a contemporary artist and a mediaeval writer gives this work - created over 10 years - a particular place within Tàpies' oeuvre. The Catalan artist wanted, in this way, to create a "livre d'artiste" in the fullest sense of the term, starting with the encounter between the book and the object as an aid to literary thinking, by exploiting the full range of expression of the concept of plasticity: line, color, material, and relief, down to the very "size" of the leaves. More than just a juxtaposition of text and image, Tàpies here establishes a true graphic and written dialogue between the "ravaged clarity" of his work and the "occult wisdom" of Mad Raymond, as Pere Gimeferrer notes in his introduction. "The meeting of these two worlds - the verbal and the plastic - will allow us to see their revelatory similarities. It is a dialogue between two voices, torches in the sparse and distant silence."   - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Très rare édition originale du plus important livre d'artiste réalisé par Antoni Tàpies. Un des 120 exemplaires numérotés sur vélin d''Arche et justifiés à la main par l'artiste au colophon, composé de 25 gravures originales dont deux justifiées et signées au crayon par Antoni Tapiès, seul tirage après 45 exemplaires de tête enrichis d'un monotype. Notre exemplaire est bien complet du tiré à part de la version française du texte). Emouvant envoi autographe signé d'Antoni Tapiès enrichi d'un dessin au crayon de la main de l'artiste - au sens littéral - sur laquelle est posée un cœur, adressé à son proche ami et plus grand spécialiste français de son travail, l'écrivain et essayiste Georges Raillard. Raymond Lulle, philosophe et poète catalan du XIIIème siècle, considéré comme le premier grand écrivain en langue catalane, exerça une influence majeure sur la pensée et sur l'œuvre d'Antoni Tapies qui possédait de nombreux et importants ouvrages anciens du penseur mystique dans sa bibliothèque. C'est en 1973 que Tàpies décida d'entreprendre la réalisation de cet ouvrage monumental qu'il n'achèvera qu'en 1985, à la fois hommage rendu au compatriote par son héritier spirituel et mise en regard de leurs communes explorations métaphysiques. Cette affinité, au-delà des siècles, entre l'artiste moderne et l'écrivain médiéval, confère à ce travail de 10 ans une dimension particulière dans l'œuvre de Tàpies. L'artiste catalan a ainsi souhaité réaliser un « livre d'artiste » au sens complet, partant à la rencontre de l'objet-livre, support de la pensée littéraire, en exploitant l'ensemble des modes d'expression de la pensée plastique : le trait, la couleur, la matière, le relief et jusqu'à la « taille » de la feuille. Plus qu'une confrontation entre le texte et l'image, Tàpies instaure ici un véritable dialogue scriptural et graphique entre la « clarté ravagée » de son œuvre et  la « sagesse occulte » des écrits Raymond le Fou, comme l'écrit Pere Gimeferrer dans son introduction. « La convergence de ces deux mondes - verbal et plastique - nous donnera à voir leur affinité révélatrice. Dialogue de deux voix qui brandissent des torches au seuil d'un silence auguste et lointain. »

The treaty, in 13 articles, guarantees the safety of Dutch ships trading at Tripoli and their crews (even when shipwrecked), sets restrictions on taxes (military supplies such as gunpowder, lead, iron, cannonballs and ships' masts are exempted). The governor of Tripoli is to see to it that the whole city is warned when one of the Dutch States General's ships drops anchor, so that all who own slaves can keep an eye on them to ensure they do not flee to the ship. Merchants under Dutch authority, whether Christians or Jews, are to be allowed to reside in the city unhindered, except for taxation.In very good condition and untrimmed.

The highest number so far is "158", the letters run from A to F. Professor Jan van Gelder has shown that the volumes originally belonged to the art-collector Pieter Spiering Silfvercrona (d. 1652), who was responsible for the uniform black leather bindings.With an owner's inscription on the verso side of flyleaf by the Dutch engraver Frans Koerten (1603-1668), and owner's inscription on pastedown by Van Meurs (?), who bought the present copy at the auction of the library of Johannes Enschedé. Very good copy, without the often lacking index of four leaves and only slightly browned. Binding rubbed along the extremities, slightly damaged on spine.

Ad 4: Chadenat 2165; NUC lists 1 copy only; this ed. not in OCLC. Ad 5: Chadenat 4391; this ed. not in OCLC nor in NUC. Nice collection of five very rare accounts of the early mission in southeastern Asia. Ad 1 : Rare third edition of a popular account of an overland voyage from France to the Far East by Jacques de Bourges (ca. 1630-1714), a companion of the French titular bishop of Berytus (Beirut), Lambert de la Motte, on the first expedition to the Far East of the newly erected Société des Mission Etrangères. They left Marseille in June 1660, and travelled via Malta, through the Middle East and India, to Siam (Thailand). After having lived there for a year, Bourges was sent back to France to report in Rome on the conditions for missionising in Siam. Two years later, in 1666, he published the original edition of the present work, based on the diary he had kept during his adventurous voyage. A Dutch translation was published in 1669. Ad 2 : Rare second edition of an account of the voyages and mission activities of the French bishops in the Far East, by François Pallu (1625-1684), the titular bishop of Heliopolis (Baalbek) with jurisdiction over Tongking, Laos and five provinces of southwestern China. He arrived in Ayutthaya, Siam, in 1664, where he met bishop Lambert (see above). Together they decided to take this city as the center for religious propaganda in Southeast Asia, because of its relative safety and atmosphere of tolerance. Pallu went back to Rome in 1665 to explain this decision, while Lambert began to construct the headquarters in Ayutthaya. Pallu was received by Louis XIV several times between 1667 and 1670, and managed to get royal assurances of finacial support for the mission. In 1668 he published the present work, of which the present edition is an abridged version. In 1673 he returned to the Far East where he worked until his death in China, 1684. Ad 3 : Rare second edition of this account, probably written by Luc Fermanel de Favery (Lach & Van der Kley), which brought fresh information about the condition of the mission in different parts of southeastern Asia between 1666 and 1671. The original edition appeared in 1674. It consists of four parts, the first dealing with the mission in Siam and containing descriptions of amongst others Bourbon Island, Madagascar, and Mozambique, the second treating the situation in Cochin-China, the third the mission in Cambodia, and the fourth being devoted to Tongking, including an account of the work of bishop Lambert (see above). Ad 4 : Very rare second edition of this work relating to the voyages and work of important missionaries in southeastern Asia between 1672 and 1675, thus being a sequel to the previous work. It includes information about bichop Lambert (see above), Chevreuil, Guiart, Vachet, Leroux, and Paumard. The original edition appeared in 1680. Ad 5 : Extremely rare second edition of this account on the mission in the Far East in 1666 and 1667, and can be regarded a sequel to the previous work. It originally appeared in 1680.Good copy with contemp. ownership's entry written on title 'Ex libris Hérisson'.

        Die cronycke van Hollandt, Zeelandt en[de] Vrieslant beghinnende va[n] Adams tiden tot die geboerte ons heren Jh[es]u[m] voertgaende tot de[n] jare M.CCCCC. ende Xvij.Leiden, Jan Seversz., 18 August 1517. Folio. With the title-page printed in red and black with a large woodcut between different woodcut borders, and 239 woodcuts in text, including 121 woodcut portraits. Black blind-tooled goatskin (1637), with gold-tooled title and binding date on side.

      - Adams A2252; J. van Gelder & I.Jost, Jan de Bisschop and his icones and paradigmata (1985), pp. 196-211; Jeudwine, p. 253, and no. 388. First edition of the famous and beautifully illustrated Dutch national chronicle, known as the "Divisiekroniek", because of its publication in 32 devisions. The chronicle contains various narratives of historical, ecclesiastical and hagiographical nature and is profusely and beautifully illustrated with woodcuts of various size and style. Only ten of the woodcuts were specially designed and cut for the "Divisiekroniek": apparently the Leyden printer Jan Severszoon used whatever he happened to have in stock. Some of the woodcuts are ascribed to Lucas van Leyden, Jacob Cornelisz. van Oostsanen and Cornelis Engebrechtsz. Of particular interest is the black goatskin binding with gold-tooling on the front side and the spine. There are 21 other volumes known with similar bindings, all with the date "1637" on the side and a shelf mark on the spine, with a number at the top (here: "102") and a capital letter at the bottom (here: "E").

[Vol. III]: “Captain James Cook's three voyages of exploration to the Pacific between 1768 and 1780 were the first of the great European voyages of discovery to carry professional artists. The Art of Captain Cook's Voyages contains all the known drawings and paintings done for these voyages as well as a fascinating narrative and explanatory text by Bernard Smith and Rudiger Joppien. ¶ Volume III, describing Cook's final voyages, is of particular interest for its descriptions of the Pacific Northwest of America as well as Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific Islands.” – YUP. ¶ Reviews: “The Joppien and Smith series, already hailed by reviewers of the first two volumes, is in turn a model for how to present scholarly explorations through visual communication. . . . In the spirit of Captain Cook the authors not only have compiled a resource for scholars, they have made it 'entertaining to the generality of readers.'” — David W. Plath, New York Times Book Review. ¶ "The two compilers of this massive collection are to be commended for the exhaustive task they have accomplished."—Dennis Puleston, New Scientist.

      - Knuttel 16776; for the treaty: A.H. de Groot, "Ottoman North Africa and the Dutch Republic .", in: Revue de l'Occident Musulman ., 39 (1985), pp. 131-147, at p. 144. First edition, published in Dutch translation, of a treaty signed between the Dutch States General and Pasha Ahmed Karamanli (1686-1745), Turkish Muslim leader of the semi-autonomous state of Tripoli since 1711, when he killed the Ottoman governor and took the throne. The treaty, in 13 articles, guarantees the safety of Dutch ships trading at Tripoli and their crews (even when shipwrecked), sets restrictions on taxes (military supplies such as gunpowder, lead, iron, cannonballs and ships' masts are exempted). The governor of Tripoli is to see to it that the whole city is warned when one of the Dutch States General's ships drops anchor, so that all who own slaves can keep an eye on them to ensure they do not flee to the ship. Merchants under Dutch authority, whether Christians or Jews, are to be allowed to reside in the city unhindered, except for taxation.In very good condition and untrimmed.
