        Surely You're Joking Mr. Feynman!" Adventures of a Curious Character.

      New York & London: W. W. Norton & Company, 1985 - Octavo. Original red cloth-backed red boards, title to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. A beautiful copy, rarely seen in such excellent condition, in the bright jacket with just a little rubbing to head of spine. First edition, first printing of Feynman's classic volume of memoirs, including humorous and insightful stories from his childhood, education at MIT, work on the Manhattan Project, and his teaching and research career. The title refers to the bafflement of an administrator's wife at MIT when the inexperienced young Feynman requested both lemon and cream in his tea. Other memorable stories include his lock-picking escapades at Los Alamos, his request to see a "map of the cat", and the poignant death of his beloved first wife, Arlene. The New York Times review of this volume describes him as "a storyteller in the tradition of Mark Twain" who "proves once again that it is possible to laugh out loud and scratch your head at the same time" (NYT, January 27, 1985).

        RAMSTEIN.

      - Aquarell in Grautönen, links unten signiert "H. Rosbach ad nat. del.", r.u. monogrammiert und datiert "H.R.pxt. 19/4 [18]41". Ca. 19,8 x 25,4 cm (Darstellung ohne Schrift). Knickspuren ausserhalb der Darstellung. Detailgenaue Zeichnung des Trierer Arztes und Botanikers Dr. Heinrich Rosbach, dessen zeichnerisches Werk für fast einhundert Jahre unbeachtet blieb. Erst die Ausstellung 1985 in Mettlach entdeckte den sonst vor allem durch seine Flora von Trier (1880) bekannten Künstler. In seiner Jugendzeit war er zeichnerisch durchaus produktiv, wählte jedoch einen Brotberuf. Nach dem Studium in Bonn und seiner Niederlassung als Arzt in Trier (1840) ging der Umfang seiner Zeichentätigkeit stark zurück. Vorliegendes Blatt ist einiges der wenigen, die nicht im Nachlaß der Familie verwahrt wurden und galt als verschollen: "Neben den schon erwähnten Zeichnungen . hat Rosbach die Burg ein weiteres Mal am 19.4.1841 gezeichnet. Dieses Blatt, eine recht große Aquarell-Grisaille mit figürlicher Staffage im Vordergrund (Angler) ist leider verschollen." (Köhl, Peter H., Heinrich Rosbach 1814-1879. Ein Trierer Zeichner der Romantik, S. 44.)

        Guttuso a Genova nel nome Della Ragione

      Electa, Milano 1985 - Bross. ed. con sovrac. fig. a colori. Minime imperfezioni alle cuffie ma ottimo esemplare. Il volume proviene dalla biblioteca del pittore romano Luigi Civerchia. I ritratti qui presenti mostrano l idea di concepire il libro come un intelligente ed espressivo contenitore di memorie, le proprie innanzitutto, ma anche quelle dei diversi personaggi che egli ritrae, come intrecciandone i destini tra le pagine di uno stesso testo. Vale la pena notare che il nostro pittore ha scelto solo i libri come gallerie per i ritratti. Chi ha visitato qualche sua mostra, tra le tante tenutesi in Italia e all estero, avrà infatti osservato che nei paesaggi o in altre composizioni le figure umane sono per lo più assenti, o comunque, hanno un ruolo del tutto secondario. E quindi una vera scoperta il Civerchia ritrattista, e lo è ancor più considerando la particolarità di esprimersi su di un mezzo singolare come sono le pagine di un libro. Luigi Civerchia è nato a Roma, nel popolare quartiere di Trastevere, nel 1928. Dopo una prima esperienza presso la bottega di uno scultore, continua il suo percorso nell Atelier di Vittorio Grassi, momento fondante della sua formazione umana ed artistica. Si avvicina poi alla Scuola Romana seguendo con entusiasmo gli insegnamenti dei suoi Maestri ideali: Mafai, Pirandello e Quaglia. 4to (cm. 28) 99 pp. con num.se ill.ni in nero e a colori n.t. Ritratti originali di Renato Guttuso (3) e Pablo Picasso, due disegni da Guttuso (il tutto eseguito da L. Civerchia). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Plus Minus Box

      London: Architectural Association 1985 - First Edition. Large square quarto in box. Contains four works on plates (consisting of nine separate pieces), and an unbound booklet with photographs of twenty-one additional pieces, alongside text by Alvin Boyardsky, Richard George Rogers, and David Dodge Gray. The works on plate utilize a variety of material, including embossed glossy paper, silk screened prints, raised paper sculptures in matte frames, and printed Perspex acrylic. Kisa Kawakami's work straddles architecture and sculpture; his often paper based models bridge the conceptual radicalism of Archigram and other 1960s architectural collectives with the private craft work of traditional Japanese paper arts. The multiples included in this box provide a rare glimpse into the work of an artist little known outside of speculative architecture cognoscenti. A few spots of toning and discoloration on some plates, overall near fine, close to fine in printed box. Though amply represented institutionally, scarce in the trade.

        TYPED LETTER SIGNED FROM ROALD DAHL TO HIS PUBLISHER RAYNER UNWIN.

      Unpublished. 25th March . 1985 - A single page typed letter, written by Roald Dahl on Gipsy House, Great Missenden letterhead, to the head of George Allen and Unwin publishers Rayner Unwin. Dahl writes in thanks for sending a copy of "Secret Gardens" which he has passed on to his editor at Farrar, Straus. "I read the book myself before I gave it to him and what really struck me most forcibly was that just about all the writers in it who have written a classic children’s book have not come up with much else in that field. The[y] all seem to have been ‘one off’ merchants". Signed "Roald" in black ink. The letter is in very good condition, with two horizontal folds. Provenance: Rayner Unwin; thence by descent to Merlin Unwin. Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request. Lucius Books welcomes direct contact with our customers.

        Blood Meridian

      New York: Random House, 1985. First edition. Fine/Fine. McCarthy's masterwork, front-runner for best American novel from the 1980s. A Fine copy in like dust jacket with a small owner's name and one small nick to the lower rear corner of the jacket (minor loss). No remainder mark. Spine colors vibrant. An excellent copy overall. McCarthy's masterful meditation on brutality, death, and the American West. Set in the mid 19th century, "Blood Meridian" follows the adventures of "The Kid," who joins the violent Glanton Gang, and his relationship with the imposing and demonic figure of Judge Holden. Published in 1985, the novel was McCarthy's fifth book - but the first to take place in the American Southwest. Writer David Foster Wallace called it "[p]robably the most horrifying book of this century, at least [in] fiction" and critic Harold Bloom referred to "Blood Meridian" as "the greatest single book since Faulkner's As I Lay Dying." It appears on Time Magazine's list of the 100 greatest English novels from 1923-2005. "Any page of his work reveals his originality, a passionate voice given equally to ugliness and lyricism." (Contemporary New York Times Review). Fine in Fine dust jacket.

        Plus Minus Box

      London: Architectural Association, 1985. A few spots of toning and discoloration on some plates, overall near fine, close to fine in printed box. Though amply represented institutionally, scarce in the trade.. First Edition. Large square quarto in box. Contains four works on plates (consisting of nine separate pieces), and an unbound booklet with photographs of twenty-one additional pieces, alongside text by Alvin Boyardsky, Richard George Rogers, and David Dodge Gray. The works on plate utilize a variety of material, including embossed glossy paper, silk screened prints, raised paper sculptures in matte frames, and printed Perspex acrylic. Kisa Kawakami's work straddles architecture and sculpture; his often paper based models bridge the conceptual radicalism of Archigram and other 1960s architectural collectives with the private craft work of traditional Japanese paper arts. The multiples included in this box provide a rare glimpse into the work of an artist little known outside of speculative architecture cognoscenti.
