        Picatrix. The Latin Version of Ghàyat Al-Hakìm. Text, Introduction, Appendices, Indices [ The Goal of the Wise ] ( Studies of the Warburg Institute Vol. 39 )

      The Warburg Institute, London 1986 - Hardcover. Large octavo. lxxxii + 326pp. + 18 pp plates. Pocket at rear contains 7 microfilm slides. Original oatmeal cloth with brown titling to spine and upper board, b&w plates, appendices and index. Loosely inserted are the original receipt and price lists from the Warburg Intitute. The Picatrix (Gayat al-Hakim: "The Goal of the Sage [in sorcery]") is perhaps the most influential Arabic magical work, at least as far as the European hermetic tradition is concerned. Sometimes attributed to an Adalusian named al-Majriti, there really seems little certainty as to its origins, other than they probably lie in the Middle East. The text itself is believed to date from the early thirteenth century, with the first Latin translation appearing in manuscript form in the middle of that century in Spain. It deals with astrology, as well as talismanic magic, and has been influential in the Western magical tradition since the time of Ficino. From the collection of Robert Oscar Lenkiewicz (1941 - 2002), noted British artist, eccentric, and student and collector of works on Hermetica and the arcane sciences. Lower corners lightly bumped otherwise a bright and complete Near fine copy of this scarce work. No dust jacket issued. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Manuscript in Swedish for the novel Bernard Foys tredje rockad (English title: Bernard Foy's Third Castling).

      - One folder called ?Foy 1?, comprising the first of the three chapters of the novel, in duplicated typescript with many small changes, and the device ?Veritas omnia vincit? on the title, which was not used in the printed version. A second folder of 30 leaves with sketches for the structure of the novel in both handwriting and typescript, where different authors and titles of works are mentioned. This folder comes with a sketch for the cover, onto which a photo of a zeppelin has been mounted. A third folder comprising the whole novel, but lacking half of the first chapter. The text in this folder consists of both duplicated typescripts and print-outs, where sections have been crossed out, sentences on paper strips have been mounted onto the text leaves, and manual changes and additions have been made. The novel was first published in 1986. The last folder is dated ?Austin, Texas, 1983-85?, the others are not dated. The Swedish author Lars Gustafsson (1936-) served as professor of philosophy at the University of Texas, Austin, from 1983 to 2006, and it seems that he started using a computer when coming there. Another version of the manuscript for this novel is included in the holdings of Uppsala University Library. A comparison between the two versions shows that the version offered here belongs to an earlier state of the novel?s emergence.

        The Big Sleep.

      Arion Press, 1986. - Signed Limited Edition, Limited to 425 Copies. Illustrated with 41 Photographs by Lou Stoumen. Signed by Lou Stoumen. Measuring 10" x 8" with 252 numbered pages, the book is bound in bevelled plexiglass boards and curved plexiglass spine with silkscreened titling and decoration. The type is Monotype Scotch Roman for the text with handset Futura Black for display, printed in two colors by letterpress on Mohawk Superfine, with the illustrations printed by photolithography in blue-black duotone with varnish. The introduction to the book was written by Lawrence Clark Powell. The book is in FINE condition and is signed by Lou Stoumen at the end of his 2 page "Photographer's Note" in the back of the book. This is a signed limited edition of "The Big Sleep" published by the Arion Press in 1986 with a limitation of 425 unnumbered copies signed by Lou Stoumen. From the publisher, "For the third in its series of classic detective novels, the Arion Press selected photographer Lou Stoumen to visualize the rich girls, hoodlums, and petty grifters with whom Chandler peopled Los Angeles in the 1940s. The characters were costumed and posed in the manner of motion picture publicity stills. The resulting photographs depict crucial events in the story, like a "paper movie", as Stoumen writes in his afterword. In designing The Big Sleep Andrew Hoyem recalled modern styles current when the novel appeared half a century ago." About the Arion Press. Since its inception in 1974, the Arion Press has published 109 deluxe limited editions that are breathtaking in their scope and artistry. Combining notable literature illustrated with original artwork from prominent artists, Andrew Hoyem and his team at the Arion Press have carried on the tradition of the livre d'artiste in spectacular fashion. Michael Kimmelman of the New York Times put it best when he wrote, "The Arion Press produces some of the most beautiful limited-edition, hand printed books in the world."

        Portrait de Jacques Derrida. Photographie Originale de l'artiste

      Par l'auteur 1986 - - Par l'auteur, s.l. 1986, 22x22cm sur papier Ilford 30x40cm, une feuille. - Grand portrait photographique original en noir et blanc réalisé par Marc Trivier. Tirage argentique original non signé, comme la plupart des œuvres de Trivier. Précieuse épreuve argentique originale du célèbre photographe belge, un des artistes contemporains les plus secrets, qui malgré un succès international précoce, a préféré limiter sa production pour conserver la cohérence de son œuvre. Marc Trivier ne tire pas de nouveaux exemplaires de ses anciens portraits, le papier de tirage qu'il utilisait n'est d'ailleurs plus commercialisé. L'artiste « réalise lui-même ses tirages sur papier baryté Ilford, consacrant plusieurs jours de travail à chacun, avec une concentration particulière pour rendre les blancs, par contraste avec des noirs d'une rare densité. Un tirage de Marc Trivier ne ressemble à aucun autre. Lorsqu'il accepte de les exposer, il les suspend dans des cadres en inox de sa fabrication, laissant libre cours à la vie du papier. » (Xavier-Gilles, « Marc Trivier et la tragédie de la lumière » in Le Monde Libertaire, 2011). Cette « vie du papier » participe de l'œuvre au même titre que les diverses altérations que subissent les photographies lorsqu'elles sont exposées : « Dans les boites, les tirages gondolent, mais qu'importe : le photographe affectionne ce genre d'accident. » (Claire Guillot, « Les face à face sans échappatoire du photographe Marc Trivier », Le Monde, 2011). Marc Trivier a une sensibilité particulière pour l'aspect matériel de ses productions. Alors que la photographie relève par essence du multiple, cette intervention de l'artiste dans tout le processus de création confère une aura autographique à ces tirages. Photographies d'artistes, de fous, d'arbres ou d'abattoirs, Marc Trivier aborde tous ces sujets avec un regard aussi précis qu'intense. « Dans sa cosmogonie, chaque chose, chaque être, végétal, animal ou humain, mérite le même respect. Car tous sont confrontés à la même loi d'airain : la solitude. » (Luc Desbenoit). La beauté qui émane de ses photos vient de cette nudité. Il n'y a ni retouches, ni recadrages. On retrouve dans son œuvre le même format carré souligné par le carré du négatif que Trivier laisse sur ses tirages. Ce cadre piège notre regard dans des photographies où le fard de la couleur est rejeté pour un noir et blanc incisif. Toute artificialité ayant disparu nous ne faisons pas face à la mise en scène d'un sujet mais à une présence exacerbée par la lumière irradiante et singulière, témoin d'un instant de vie et non de pose. C'est cette lumière, liée au médium photographique, qui unit les séries de Marc Trivier : « Les photographies de Marc Trivier écrivent une tragédie de la lumière, celle-ci n'accueillant les êtres - hommes, arbres ou bêtes - qu'en les brûlant, avant disparition. » (Xavier-Gilles in Le Monde Libertaire). C'est aussi elle, délivrée de tous les artifices, qui donne à ses œuvres l'aura qui les rend si présentes. Cette « brûlure » de la lumière nous renvoie à un instant réel, au « ça a été » de Barthes (La Chambre Claire, 1980) : « De trente-cinq ans de pratique photographique, d'obsessions, c'est peut-être ça qui reste : un mode d'enregistrement singulier de la brûlure de la lumière, décliné d'une image à l'autre, en une succession de propositions qui se ressemblent et pourtant chacune est aussi singulière que la fraction de temps auquel elle renvoie. » (Marc Trivier). « La photographie ne dit qu'une chose : « C'était. » On ne fixe que ce qui a été. S'il y a une tragédie, elle est là. » (Marc Trivier) Warhol, Foucault, Beckett, Dubuffet . les plus grands écrivains et artistes ont posés pour Trivier. Simultanément l'artiste s'intéressent également aux marges de la société, à ce que les hommes ne veulent pas voir. Il photographie alors les aliénés et les abattoirs qu'il place en regard des célébrités. Dès la fin des années 1980 son œuvre est unanimement reconnue et il reçoit le prestigieux [Attributes: First Edition]

        [Flyers]: Archive of Material for the English Gothic Band "Specimen"

      California, 1986. Near Fine. A collection of 9 flyers, 5 maquettes, 15 tickets, and other ephemera promoting the British post Punk Goth band, Specimen during the mid-1980s. The collection features posters ranging from, 17" x 11" to 11" x 8.5" in size. Some of the flyers are printed copies of the maquettes. All items near fine with light creasing and marks. An archive of promotional material for the English Goth band, Specimen. The handbills featured here are illustrated with bats, fangs, caricatures of the band, wolves, and skulls to bolster their Gothic aesthetic. Also featured are maquettes with the original artwork for Specimen's concert flyers drawn with pencil and blue and black ink presumably by one of the band members. The tickets are from California venues like The Stone, Keystone Palo Alto, and The Farm from 1985-1986. "We urge you to become one of the documented Victims," is printed on three of the "Specimen Fang Club" subscription forms. The forms offer membership cards, pictures, the "Specimen Fangbook," and newsletters for the band. A small questionnaire is printed at the bottom asking for the subscriber's "Size of underpants and color", "Favorite perversion", and "How do you spell penis?" Specimen was formed in the 1980s in Bristol, England. They are a post Punk Goth band and have become synonymous with Gothic subculture through fashion and music. The lead vocalist, Olli Wisdom, opened the famous Batcave nightclub in 1982. The club featured a wide array of Gothic and Punk music and the band frequently played shows there. While the band no longer tours frequently today, in 2011 the band announced that they were working on a new album. An interesting collection of tickets, flyers, and band information about the popular Goth band Specimen.

      Harry N. Abrams, Inc., New York 1986 - 696pp, profusely illustrated in color and b&w. "During an extraordinary two-week period in May 1983, a spectacular, singularly beautiful apparition occurred in Florida's Biscayne Bay: Several small islands, densely covered with luxuriant foliage, were completely encircled by a two hundred foot wideband of bright pink fabric that floated on the placid blue water like vivid aureoles around cool oases of greenery. This exotic archipelago of pink-ringed land masses was an artwork entitled "Surrounded Islands", one of the most ambitious projects conceived and realized by the Bulgarian-born, American artist Christo, who is internationally renowned for audacious, large-scale works". Published in 1986, this massive tome is part of Christo and his partner Jeanne-Claude's ongoing series of comprehensive publications designed and edited by the artists with photographic documentation by Wolfgang Volz that reproduces hundreds of photos, plans, sketches, and correspondence covering every stage of the "Surrounded Islands" work from inception to aftermath. A most handsome example of the first and only Harry N. Abrams, Inc. printing in the publisher's pictorial slipcase with a swatch of the synthetic pink fabric bound in, as issued, additionally bearing the BOLDLY SIGNED AND DATED INSCRIPTION "For Henry / Christo / N.Y. 1986" in the year of publication in red ink on the half title page showing just the slightest bit of sunning along the cloth spine of the book itself. The noted late museum director, art historian, and gallerist Henry T. Hopkins - from whom we acquired this directly prior to his passing - was the director of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art when he included Christo in his curation of SFMoMA's 1980 exhibition of contemporary American art entitled "Twenty American Artists".

        MCI - The Meinertzhagen Card Index on Netsuke in the Archives of the British Museum, Part A and B (2 volumes)

      Alan R. Liss, Inc., New York, 1986 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. English text; Hardcover (with dust jacket); 22.5 x 29 cm; 4,333 Kg; 2 volumes with 1059 pages and over 5000 entries.; SCARCE REFERENCE BOOK ON NETSUKE..; Used books with minor signs of wear. The dust jackets are protected with a clearcover.; Since netsuke made their first appearance in Europe over 100 years ago, they have slowly but steadily been established among an enthusiastic circle of collectors as serious objects of art. These small sculptures range in size from 3 to 15 cm and display astonishing detail. Since the seventeenth century, they have served as a medium for artistic expression that comes as near to perfection as anything human hands could create. This publication represents the lifetime collection and study of netsuke by Frederick Meinertzhagen, one of the world's foremost authorities on netsuke. Meinertzhagen realized the need for a single source that would provide the necessary information for collectors to appreciate fully their unique qualities, but was unable to find a publisher willing to take on such an enormous task. Eventually, he indexed his entire collection; it is currently on display at the British Museum library, so that others might benefit from it. With the permission of the Museum, netsuke enthusiasm George Lazarnick photographed the entire Index for publication, thereby creating a source that successfully presents this wealthy of information to all serious collectors and dealers of netsuke. The Index consists of two volumes with over 5,000 entries that provide detailed information on individual netsuke. Perhaps the most exciting and helpful aspects of the Index are the marvelously accurate drawings of netsuke done by Meinertzhagen. The cards provide a hand drawn facsmile of the artist's signature, accurately recording the carver's original calligraphy and his kakihan. Historical backgrounds, critical commentaries, notes on various artists, and methods of collecting are included by Meinertzhagen on the cards, along with illustrations of some 100 unsigned netsuke. The book also includes photographs, correspondence, and personal insigns by those who knew Meinertzhagen, providing a complete detail of his life and work. This publication will serve as an authoritative and comprehensive reference guide for all serious collectors of netsuke and related arts. Distinguished collector Raymond Bushell notes, "George Lazarnick, with his great knowledge of netsuke and his professionalism in photography, makes the best of the Meinertzhagen Card Index available to collectors in the form in which (Meinertzhagen) wanted it. The book is a practical undertaking and a great service to collectors.".
