      New York: Viking, 1986 First edition first printing of this horror novel that has become two movies. In 1990 a television movie starring Tim Curry as Pennywise the Clown. SIGNED by Tim Curry on the half title page at the 2017 Fan Expo in Toronto. Mr. Curry doesn't sign in person anymore so the books had to be dropped off, signed and then picked up later. I will include my invoice from OC Celebrity who handles Mr. Curry's public affairs. There is a inch closed tear to the top edge of the dust jacket's rear panel at the fold for the inside flap. Due to the tear there is some light creasing to the rear dust jacket panel. The front panel has some light wrinkling on the edge of the spine about 2 inches up from the bottom edge. Pages 55 and 57 have some light creasing to them. In very good / very good condition.

      - KVK & WorldCat (3 copies); STCN (1 of the same 3 copies); cf. De Buck 2295; Van der Heyden, "Emanuel van Meteren’s History .", in: Quaerendo XVI (1986), pp. 3-29; J. Gerritsen, "Emanuel van Meteren's Commentariën and STC", in: Quaerendo XXX (2000), pp. 35-50; Sloos 12022. Extremely rare last and most complete issue of the 1611 4to edition (incorporating the author's last additions to early 1612) of a cornerstone of Dutch historiography, covering the history of the Low Countries from 1369 to early 1612, with a strong emphasis on contemporary history, especially the Eighty-Years War for Dutch independence from Habsburg Spain: "What the States Bible was for religion and Cats for literature, Van Meteren was for our historiography for a whole century" (Van der Heyden quoting Brummel). Emanuel van Meteren (1535-1612), a Dutch Reformed eye-witness to many of the events, took great care to uncover the facts and present them as objectively as possible, without polemics, something that brought him the wrath of both the Spanish court and the Dutch States General. He also wrote while the war was raging, leading him to continue revising and especially updating his text from the first authorized edition in 1599 to his death in 1612. This combined with the extremely complicated publishing history of his politically controversial book to generate a wide array of editions and issues that still demand further study. The present last and most extensive issue of the 4to edition includes material not found in the earlier editions. Van Meteren's personal note about his approaching death makes it clear that it comes from the author in one way or another, and the events to 17 February 1612, Van Meteren's closing note and the note of his death were included (with somewhat different wording) in the authorised folio edition of 1614 edition. Unfortunately, beginning with that 1614 edition, Van Meteren's work was censored to appease the States General, so the present issue makes important contributions to the history of Van Meteren's text: as far as is known it is the first edition to include his last additions, and the last edition before his work was censored. Typographically, the most remarkable feature of the present edition is the introduction of a new style of textura gothic type that was to set the standard for the Republic's texturas, used at this time for most works in the Dutch language. Most of the book is set in the 16th-century Descendiaen textura cut by Hendrick van den Keere in Ghent. But in volume 1, beginning with 4 pages in quire 2A, a new Descendiaen textura appears , clearly modelled on Van den Keere's but with baroque curls added to several of the letters and a few other distinguishing features. The old and new type appear together not only in the same quire or sheet, but even in the same forme. The printing office apparently acquired the new type while the book was in press but continued using the old one as well. The 6-line note of Van Meteren's 1612 death is set in a slightly larger Mediaen size in the new style, also its earliest known use. These new types of the 1610s served as the models for the textura types of Christoffel van Dijck and directly or indirectly for nearly all textura types of the Dutch Republic up to and including those of Fleischman in the 1740s and beyond. While the book's printer certainly had no symbolic significance in mind, it seems poetically appropriate that he set this great work about the birth of the independent Dutch Republic in the first printing type to establish an independent style for the Dutch golden age. The two title-pages have been interchanged, probably when the binding was revised and repaired. With some browning, a few tears (minor except vol. 2, part 2, 3O2), the running heads of about 4 leaves very slightly shaved and a few minor marginal water stains, but still generally in good condition. The bindings were repaired and revised at an early date, but have since developed some cracks in t

        New York Nude, Texas Nude, and Angels

      1986 - An intriguing archive from successful photographer-turned-clairvoyant Charles R. Collum presented to science writer and infamous skeptic, Martin Gardner, that includes Inscribed first editions of Collum's two books of nude photography, Dallas Nude (1977), and New York Nude (1981); a four page Typed Letter Signed, including the introduction to his unpublished book on angels; seven photographs, including one of nine angels depicted by model-turned actress Renee Russo; and 19 photocopies of geometric patterns. This package was sent to Gardner in hopes he would affirm Collum's claims of undergoing a "spiritual awakening of incredible magnitude" in 1984 which allowed him to answer life's questions such as "who or what is God?" Overall near fine or better with only very light wear to the dustwrappers of the books.The two published books represented here show Collum's striking black and white nude photographs he took of professionals and ordinary people in both Dallas and New York. The subjects were involved in numerous occupations and include musician Richie Havens, dominatrix Annie Sprinkle, Dallas Metropolitan Opera ballet dancer Steve Crenshaw, celebrity paparazzi Ron Galella, as well as policemen, lawyers, etc. Dallas Nude was published in 1977 and New York Nude was completed in 1981, three years before Collum's decision to take his talents down more spiritual paths.According to Collum's letter, until his "awakening" he was a "successful commercial photographer for 15 years," and had worked for companies such as "Neiman-Marcus, Horchow, Sakowitz, American Express, Macy's, Bloomingdale's, and Bergdorf Goodman." Then in 1984 he switched paths dramatically using his skills to try to discover the truth behind, among other religious inquiries, the phenomena of angels. "I have enclosed some of the graphic presentation of the geometry and mathematics which I have been given," we presume by divine intervention. Collum claims he has discovered the revelation of St. John the Divine, and has the marks on his body to prove it as displayed in the Polaroids he has provided (though none seem present), along with the secrets of the pyramids and Stonehenge."Just as my first two books, Dallas Nude and New York Nude, are celebrations of this temporal physical existence.Angels and my next two books are celebrations of our soul," writes Collum in the Inscription in Dallas Nude. Unfortunately it would seem that Angels and its sequels were never published.An eccentric combination of talent and fervor sent in a passionate attempt to expertly validate a conviction.

        The Departure of the Argonaut

      (London): Petersburg Press, 1986. Limited Edition. Soft cover. Fine. Clemente, Francesco. No. 98 of 200, total 288, Double Elephant - over 25" - 50" tall, signed by artist Francesco Clemente. In this volume, Clemente has illuminated Alberto Savinio's (1891-1952) autobiographical wartime voyage in 1917. By overlaying words with brightly coloured images and colours, Clemente creates an energy and rhythm to augment the author's expansive musings. Clemente used an considerable range of lithographic techniques including stones, aluminum plates, and acetates. He drew with standard litho crayons and tuesche, but also used graphite and graphite washes, rapidographs and pen and ink, transfer paper and various blotting techniques, achieving a remarkable variety of visual effects (N. B., info from Museum of Modern Art, 1986). ***ABOUT THE ARTIST: Acting as a dark shaman of the post-modern era while reacting against the dominance of increasing abstraction in preceding generations, Francesco Clemente (b. 1952) helped reinvigorate painting by using recognizable human figures as his primary subject. In idiosyncratic and arresting images, he uses Neo-Expressionist techniques to represent late twentieth century people and their psychological conditions - fundamentally questioning what is real and what is of value to the human spirit. Clemente depicts many of the darker, unspoken or conflicting psychological aspects of being human, significantly updating earlier art movements of the late modern era, drawing on Surrealism's dream-like extensions and transgressions of ordinary daily life, and building on Expressionism's revelations of interior emotional states (N. B., info from The Art Story). ***DESCRIPTION: This volume is beautifully soft-bound in cream Okawara paper with black and red text, includes 61 hand-printed lithographs (46 in colour and 15 in black and white) by Francesco Clemente on cream French-fold Okawara 60 gsm mold made Kozo paper, rough-cut on top and bottom edges; unpaginated, 25.75" tall, signed by artist Francesco Clemente, Limited edition no. 98 of 200, total 288; Translator's Notes laid in; clamshell box bound in cream linen, embossed image on the cover. ***CONDITION: Book, Translator's Notes, and box are all in fine condition with no scuffs, markings, or wear; clean and as new, entirely free of prior owner markings. ***POSTAGE: Due to size and weight, additional postage will apply; we are happy to ship at cost to both domestic and international customers, please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        Dubliners

      [New York]: The Limited Editions Club, 1986. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Ballagh, Robert. No. 978 of 1000, 4to - over 9.75" - 12" tall, 307 pp., signed by photographer and author of introduction. James Joyce's novels, with their innovative language, use of dialogue, characteristic modernist forms, and social frankness, were met with resistance when they first appeared in print. This collection of vignettes is a penetrating analysis of the stagnation and paralysis of Dublin society. Joyce's intention in writing Dubliners, in his own words, was to write a chapter of the moral history of his country, and he chose Dublin for the scene because that city seemed to him to be the centre of paralysis. He tried to present the stories under four different aspects: childhood, adolescence, maturity and public life (N. B. info from The Poetry Foundation, The James Joyce Centre, and Wikipedia). ***DESCRIPTION: Hand-sewn and bound at the Jovonis Bookbindery in dark-green Nigerian Oasis goat for the spine and Irish handkerchief linen turned over for the boards, five of the photogravure plates were made by Jon Goodman with one plate being made by Paul Taylor and printed on Cartiere Enrico Magnani paper; set in English Monotype Scotch on mould-made paper by Wild Carrot Letterpress; pagination: (i) - xxii, (1) - 289, blank (290), photogravure (291), blank (292, 293, 294), colophon (295); 11" tall, signed by photographer Robert Ballagh and author of introduction Thomas Flanagan, Limited Edition no. 978 of 1000; Limited Editions Club Letter laid in; slipcase of Italian book-cloth and lined in Ultra-Suede, also made by hand at the Jovonis Bookbindery. ***CONDITION: The volume is fine; the binding clean and unrubbed, the text block strong and square, hinges solid, clean and bright inside, entirely free of prior owner markings; clean, crisp, as new.

        A Season in Hell

      [New York]: The Limited Editions Club [Printed at The Wild Carrot Letterpress], (1986), 1986. Limited Edition. Leather. Fine. Mapplethorpe, Robert. 4to - over 9" - 12" tall. 98 p. Signed by Translator and Artist. Limited Edition of 1000 copies, this No. 340, SIGNED BY BOTH ROBERT MAPPLETHORPE AND PAUL SCHMIDT. Jean-Nicolas-Arthur Rimbaud (1854-1891) started life as a poet but stopped writing after a tumultuous period as a teenager - "burned out at the age of nineteen, he never wrote another line of poetry" (N.B., from LEC monthly newsletter for "Vowels"). He traveled the earth living in dangerous circumstances, having a leg amputated in 1891 which resulted in his death at the age of 37. This publication by the LEC is as much renowned for the photographs by Robert Mapplethorpe (1946-1989), "known for his sensitive yet blunt treatment of controversial subject-matter in the large-scale, highly stylized black and white medium of photography" (Wiki). ***DESCRIPTION: Fully bound in red leather, author's name stamped in black on the front, title stamped in black on the spine, fore- and bottom edges uncut, text in both French (presented on the left/verso of each page) and English (on the right/rector of each page), the eight photogravures bound in throughout the text; text Monotype Perpetua, quarto in size (approximately 11.25" tall), pagination: (i)-xii, (1)-87, blanks (88-90), colophon (91); limited edition of 1000 copies, this no. 340, signed by the photographer and the translator. Monthly newsletter loosely laid in. Publisher's slipcase fully covered in black cloth and lined inside with black velveteen. ***CONDITION: Volume is fine overall, the leather binding is soft and supple, with a strong, square text block, solid hinges, perfectly straight corners with no rubbing, the interior is clean and bright, and it is entirely free of prior owner markings; there is one small, shallow depression to the leather of the back board which may be a natural variation. The monthly newsletter is fine with only the original fold, no edgewear. The slipcase is fine as well, strong and sturdy, no sunning, no fraying to the cloth. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        Photo Album]: Memories from the Central Maine Sanatorium

      Fairfield, Maine 1986 - Quarto. Three-ring, 3" thick photo album binder entitled "Memories from the Central Maine Sanatorium" containing 159 black and white photographs and postcards along with some letters and newspaper clippings assembled in 1986 by a former patient, apparently to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the institution. The photographs range in size from 2" x 1.5" to 5" x 7" and are housed in adhesive album pages with mylar covers, some with typed captions. The album and contents are near fine with some age toning and occasional creasing. The Central Maine Sanatorium, or Chase Memorial Sanatorium, was started in 1914 to house tuberculosis patients. Maurice Pope was admitted in the 1940s after serving in World War II, there are numerous photographs of him in uniform, and after his treatment there, he later became an employee of the Sanatorium. The album includes photographs of himself and the other patients in dormitory style beds, while playing cards, walking the grounds, and other scenes. Also included are notes from his doctor saying he is permitted to go out, a letter from a relative, and the front cover of the "Hilltop Observer," a mimeographed newspaper written by the patients. On one postcard he writes, "back this week, have been down to all my meals for three days, hope I can go along now without anymore setbacks but that is the way of the disease." Some of the pictures show girls posing in costumes like hula skirts and pirate garbs. The physical grounds of the hospital are shown throughout the album in postcards, from aerial views, and in photographs with typed captions briefly explaining the history and identifying some of the employees of the facility. The last page has a newspaper clipping announcing the 75th anniversary in 1984. An extensive look at a patient's stay in the medical system after serving in World War II.
