        Rätoromanische Chrestomathie. Reprint der Originalausgaben 1888-1912. 14 Bde. u. 1 Registerbd in 16 Bdn. (compl.).

      Chur, Octopus/ Società Retorumanscha, 1983-1986 - Gr.-8°, ca. 8000 S., OLwd. m OU., Tadell. Die Rätoromanische Chrestomathie von Caspar Decurtins ist die bis heute wichtigste Textsammlung des Bündnerromanischen. Die insgesamt rund 8000 Seiten enthalten Texte der verschiedensten Gattungen über einen Zeitraum von vier Jahrhunderten, aus allen Regionen und in allen Idiomen des Bündnerromanischen. Die heute wichtigste Textsammlung (EA 1888-96) auf Rätoromanisch wurde zwischen 1982 und 1986 vom Churer Verleger Andreas Joos zusammen mit der Società Retorumantscha als 13-teilige Buchreihe neu herausgegeben und durch einen 14. und 15. Band ergänzt. - Caspar Decurtins (1855-1916), auch «Löwe von Trun» genannt, Politiker (Katholisch-Konservativ) aus dem Surselva, studierte Decurtins nach 1875 Geschichte, Kunstgeschichte und Staatsrecht in München und Heidelberg, ab 1877 wieder in Graubünden. Als Landammann der Cadi führte Decurtins nach 1877 zusammen mit Placi Condrau die Restaurierung des Klosters Disentis durch. Er schaltete die politische Konkurrenz der Katholisch-Liberalen in der Surselva aus und wurde die treibende Kraft hinter der Lavina naira. In den 1890er Jahren schmolz seine Wählerbasis im Kanton zunehmend und Decurtins zog sich enttäuscht aus der Politik zurück. Im Jahr 1889 hatte Decurtins an der Gründung der Universität Freiburg durch seinen Studienfreund Georges Python entscheidenden Anteil. Von 1905 bis 1913 unterrichtete er als Professor für Kulturgeschichte an der dortigen Philosophischen Fakultät. 25000 gr. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Typed Letter Signed by Bruce Long, concerning the William Desmond Taylor murder case, together with the first issue of Long's pamphlet 'Taylorology'.

      Letter: 10 January ; Mesa Arizona. Pamphlet: Number 1 Fall 1985 1986 - Letter: 4to, 1 p. Twenty-six lines. Text clear and complete. On aged and worn paper, with a couple of holes, light staining and indentations. Addressed to 'Jon', whose book, with a 'chapter pertaining to the Taylor case' Long 'would like very much to see'. Long encloses the copy of 'Taylorology', of which he writes, 'Despite my intentions, there was only one issue due to very poor response -- only a dozen subscribers.' He boasts that his 'collected material on this case', 'primarily newspaper clippings', 'weighs over 30 lbs., with more information coming in every week'. He mentions the fact that the director King Vidor was 'working on a book for many years', and that his research has 'passed into the hands of Sidney Kirkpatrick, with a book of their material, 'A Cast of Killers', on the verge of publication. He has himself been contacted by Douglas Whitton, 'a Canadian who has been researching the case for 8 years and working on his own book'. They have decided to collaborate, with a book due to appear in 1987. A strip of paper with the letter carries a 'list of a few additional publications which came to my attention after the newsletter was published'. Pamphlet: 4to, 24 pp. Stapled. In fair condition, on lightly-sunned and stained paper, with crease to front cover. Strapline reads 'A Continuing Exploration and Review of the William Desmond Taylor Murder Case'. Printed in double-column. Long describes the 'purpose of Taylorology' as to act as a 'forum' and 'focal point', as well as to 'reprint rare old newspaper material on the case'. The magazine contains an 'Introduction to Taylorology', a seven-page account of Taylor's inquest, sections on 'Wallace Smith', 'Taylor's Words', 'Celebrities' and 'Humor', and a 'Bookshelf'. A cartoon relating to the case, from the Pittsburg Sun, 11 February 1922, is reprinted on a full page, and a diagram of the murder scene, from the Los Angeles Record, 2 February 1922, is also reproduced. Two more printed issues followed this one, and in 1993 the magazine became an online publication. It has garnered praise as an invaluable resource for those interested in the case and the early days of Hollywood. This item is, as Long points out in his letter, scarce, only a dozen individuals having subscribed to the first issue. In the first online issue, Number 4, Long states that he has 'no present plans to reprint' Numbers 1 to 3. No copies on COPAC, and the only copy on WorldCat at Bowling Green State University in Ohio.

        The Small Garden of Gloria Stuart

      1986 - No. 49 of 50 copies of this artist's book inspired by the movie star Gloria Stuart (1910 -2010). Ms. Stuart was a leading lady in the 1930s and early 1940s, best known then for her roles in "The Invisible Man", and many decades later, after a long retirement from the movies, for her role in "Titanic" in 1997. Ms. Stuart, though, was far from idle during her many years away from acting, and her multifarious productivity away from the camera are every bit as fascinating as her Hollywood career. Besides being a political activist sympathetic to liberal causes throughout her life, Ms. Stuart was active in the decorative arts as a designer and business owner, and she enjoyed considerable success as a primitivist painter as well. Most pertinent to this book, Ms. Stuart became both an ardent gardener and an artisan printer, producing artist's book in which she did virtually everything, including the writing, the designing and the printing. While this book was written and produced by Joseph J. D'Ambrosio, a celebrated California book artist, it is a celebration and homage to Ms. Stuart's achievements, and some of the elements in the book such as the overlay of foliage imagery are a nod to Ms. Stuart's own work. This D'Ambrosio creation impresses with many other clever effects such as its intricate paper cuts of the preliminary pages to conjure up a three dimensional illusion of forest and trees, with the foreground a caryatid of two tree trunks shaped like women's bodies. D'Ambrosio has bestowed on us an object of revelatory beauty, and while the aesthetic is unabashedly modernist, the spirit is traditional artistry and artisanship at its best. The book, which is modest in size, a little over 6 inches tall, is in mint condition, and it is protected with a cloth box that contains a felt repository or well in which the book resides.

        Collection of 132 Colin De Land Fine Art and American Fine Arts, Company Exhibition Announcements

      (New York: Colin De Land Fine Art and American Fine Arts Company, 1986-2004). Cards range in size from 3 1/2" X 5" cards to 5" X 7" brochures. Uniformly close to fine.. Collection of 132 exhibition announcements from Colin De Land Fine Art and American Fine Arts, Company Gallery. De Land was the art world's enfant terrible in the 1990s, responsible for three commercial spaces in New York that bucked the notion of what a "commercial" gallery should do. His shows rarely opened on time, he never had a consistent stable of artists, and he occasionally showed work by artists who didn't exist. De Land's approach was a direct response to the bull market of the 1980s, and he fostered artists hailed for their strong, but often humorous, institutional critique. This sense of humor permeated his projects, and by the time he relocated to SoHo in 1988, American Fine Arts, Company was a laboratory and refuge for raucous minds. Collection includes announcements for Peter Nagy, John Dogg, Richard Prince, Peter Hopkins, Collins & Milazzo, Vito Acconci, Barbara Gladstone, Joseph Kosuth, Peter Fend, Cady Noland, Peter Nadin, Jeff Koons, Joel Shapiro, Christopher Williams, Frank Stella, Rob Pruitt, Carl Andre, John Waters, Gary Gross, and Mark Flood, among others.

        THE ETERNAL BODY: A Collection of Fifty Nudes

      Carmel, California: Photography West Graphics, 1986. Limited, signed first edition. Very near fine in a near fine slipcase (lacking the separate original print, 2 small light spots on spine. ) Winner of the Photography Book of the Year Award, this is a retrospective collection of Bernhard's work, an erotic photography classic and a magnificently produced and very beautiful book. In her introduction, Bernhard states "In photographing the nude, it is my aim to transform the complexities of the figure into harmonies of simplified form. I have approached my work with the nude much as I create a still life, with patience and reverence. My quest through the magic of light and shadow, is to isolate, to simplify and to give emphasis to form with the greatest clarity." The 50 plates are arranged chronologically and span the years from 1934 to 1976. (list of plates at rear of book). Includes 2 essays by Margaretta K. Mitchell, one on photographing the nude, the other a brief biography of Bernhard. Ansel Adams - with whom Bernhard worked for many years - has been quoted as saying that Bernhard was "the greatest photographer of the nude." A large oblong volume bound in burgundy cloth with silver lettering in a matching cloth slipcase. Printed by Gardner/Fulmer, using the Laser Fultone Process, to the highest standards. One of only 375 numbered and SIGNED copies in this special slipcased edition (out of a total edition of 5400).

      Milano: Jaca Book, 1986. Prima edizione (First edition). ril tela, sovrac, custodia (cloth, DJ, slip-case). Ottimo (Fine). 4to. A cura di Giovanni Chiaramonte. Presentazione di Carlo Bertelli. 110 fotografie in bianco e nero di Gabriele Basilico. Note biografiche e apparato critico. Testi in italiano e francese Ci sono edifici che grazie alla sapienza di chi li ha progettati e alla visione di chi li fotografa, svelano una forma antropomorfa. Nelle architetture sono nascosti occhi, nasi, orecchie, labbra, volti che aspettano la paola, e la parola sembra poter nascere solo se vivono l'evento rivelatore della luce, nella condizione limite che è l'assenza dell'uomo. Basta la presenza di un uomo a ridare all'architettura il valore di sfondo, a dare al vuoto il senso drammatico di un'assenza, mentre l'assenza dell'uomo toglie al vuoto questa dimensione d'angoscia e fa del vuoto quello che veramente è, perché il vuoto riempie se stesso e diventa il soggetto stesso" (Gabriele Basilico).

        The Vampire Lestat

      U.S.A.: Alfred A. Knopf 1986 - The Vampire Lestat, whom we first met in Interview With the Vampire , has his own story to tell. Anne Rice's second book in The Vampire Chronicles follows Lestat through the ages as he conducts his own search for his origins and to find meaning in what has happened to him. Unlike the cruel and dark Lestat we saw in Interview, this book reveals a sympathetic figure with his own blend of morality, romanticism, and bravery. Lestat has been asleep for fifty-five years and awakes entranced with the modern world. He becomes a superstar rock musician and millions of fans fall under his spell. Breaking the vampire code of silence, Lestat reveals himself to the world in the hopes that the world's immortals will rise and join together to solve the mystery of their, and his, existence. 1st edition, 1st printing signed by Anne Rice.
