Mede vervattende eenige haerder gebueren handelinge. ... oversien verbetert ende vermeerdert tot dese[n] tege[n]wordigen wtgank des jaers anno 1611.

With 2 engraved title-pages, both coloured and highlighted in gold by an early hand. Further with a full-page engraved portrait of Van Meteren, and 21 smaller woodcut portraits in the text attributed to Christoffel van Sichem. Mottled, gold-tooled calf (ca. 1665), gold-tooled spines, 18th-century(?) gold-tooling on the boards.

      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 the hinges, and the mottling of the calf has caused some cracks and flaking, but they are otherwise in good condition. Very rare last issue, with additions and revisions of the first complete 4to edition of a great historical chronicle of the Netherlands at the dawn of it golden age.Even more extensive description available on request.

        The Departure of the Argonaut

      Petersburg Press, (London) 1986 - 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.

The typed letter signed from Bashe to Cohen, dated 11 December 1985, thanks Cohen for his assistance and encouragement over the years and reiterates the sentiments put forth in the book's acknowledgements: "it was a most pleasant and rewarding collaboration".

        The Rehnquist Supreme Court Signed.

      Rehnquist Supreme Court oversized color photograph signed by all nine justices. Group portrait of the Rehnquist Court taken on the occasion of the investiture of Clarence Thomas. Signed on the mat below by Clarence Thomas, William Rehnquist, Anthony Kennedy, Antonin Scalia, Harry A. Blackmun, John Paul Stevens, Byron R. White, Sandra Day O'Connor, and David H. Souter. The photograph measures 13.5 inches by 10.5 inches. The entire framed piece measures 21.5 inches by 17.5 inches. The Rehnquist Court refers to the Supreme Court of the United States from 1986 to 2005, when William Rehnquist served as Chief Justice of the United States. Rehnquist succeeded Warren Burger as Chief Justice after the latter's retirement, and Rehnquist served as Chief Justice until his death in 2005, at which point John Roberts was nominated and confirmed as Rehnquist's replacement. The Rehnquist Court is generally considered to be more conservative than the preceding Burger Court and Warren Court. According to Jeffrey Rosen, Rehnquist combined an amiable nature with great organizational skill, and he "led a Court that put the brakes on some of the excesses of the Earl Warren era while keeping pace with the sentiments of a majority of the country." Biographer John Jenkins argued that Rehnquist politicized the Supreme Court and moved the court and the country to the right. Through its rulings, the Rehnquist Court often promoted a policy of New Federalism in which more power was given to the states at the expense of the federal government. The Rehnquist Court was also notable for its stability, as the same nine justices served together from 1994 to 2005, the longest such stretch in Supreme Court history.

        Approach to the Site

      Brooklyn: Waterstreet Press, 1986. Signed Limited First Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Timothy C. Ely. Copy 42 of 49. Ten folios, offset printed on Arches cover buff. This copy in a unique binding by the author/illustrator Timothy C. Ely. Artist's statement:Approach to the Site is one of the very few editioned books I have made. In itself it is a departure from my other editioned books because the printing was done using commercial offset lithography. I made this choice having seen some impressive examples of work produced by Waterstreet Press in Brooklyn, a fine book and art printer. My paper choice suggests oxidation and entropy. We all go yellow in the end. I received a grant from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation which funded the printing and supplies for the binding.Approach to the Site is a reflection on my ideas of libraries and how those ideas both inspired and directed some of my work at that time. In the early 80s, when this book was produced, a core idea for me rippled out from the image of Library as Island. I had visited national libraries in England, Italy and France and, of course, the Library of Congress and the New York Public library. I always look in on any library I pass for they seem to me to be like ponds of influence and all you have to do is throw in a stone. I am one of those stones. In addition to the visits, absorbing architecture and the direct influence and inspiration of physical books, I read a book on the history of the early Christian Church called THE LIVES OF THE DESERT FATHERS. I became intrigued with the idea of an archetypal library as a radiant island or colony of thinkers and seekers. North Africa seems to be a string of beads, a constellation of sorts, each bead or star a monastery, many with a library. For some forgotten reason I set the archetype in central Turkey. The library was not Atlantis-like or special beyond just being an amazing repository of world knowledge, perhaps concealed or requiring clearance like the Vatican Library and its veiled basement.I began a small series of now lost sketches mostly done in the American Museum of Natural History in New York. These would guide my ideas as I drew each mylar color separation by hand. A few images used 4 colors, some two, and many were monochromatic reflecting a set of subjects I would have liked to have found in this secret library.The edition took decades to complete as I am a reluctant edition binder. With my work on unique manuscript books and other projects there has always been something more compelling to do. I tended to bind a few copies of Approach to the Site at a time or when a client showed some interest. - Timothy C. Ely, February 2017As is usual with editioned books, copies of Approach to the Site were not completed and numbered sequentially. Ely retains copy #1, unbound. Over time, many of the case bound copies were repurposed. Far fewer than the stated edition of 49 copies were issued or actually exist.Conventional sewing. Boards covered in remaindered leaves and fragments from the printing (partially revealed) and then given a crusticular treatment using various sands and aggregate compounds from many high desert landscapes. Housed in a custom clamshell box by the artist. Bound by Timothy Ely in 1998. 27.5cm x 37cm.
