        MORE DARK THAN SHARK - LIMITED EDITION OF 150 NUMBER 111 OF 150

      UK: FABER AND FABER, 1986 Item Description: Faber & Faber, Uk. Decorative Cloth. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket, as Issued. Mills, Russell (illustrator). Limited. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Limited first edition hardcover, signed by both Brian Eno & Russell Mills with an original signed, numbered, Russell Mills hand-worked lithograph: "warm jets". This copy is number 111 of only 150, a very rare edition of an extremely rare book in any form, in fine condition with a very slight age discoloration on the front left side of slip cover.-and slight wear and tear to the cardboard edges( not the best of slipcovers to be honest). "More Dark Than Shark" is the stylishly designed, much sought-after publication by noted composer/musician/artist Brian Eno, and his frequent collaborator, the late visual imagist Russell Mills. It is "a unique document of the intersection of rock music and the visual arts, and a fascinating insight into the creative processes of two important artists. Extracts from the notebooks of Eno and Mills combined with the supplementary notes by the artists, illuminate the thought processes and working methods behind the songs and images". Included are the lyrics and accompanying artwork for fifty-seven songs from "Here Come the Warm Jets", "Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy)", "Another Green World" and "Before and After Science", as well as copious additional insights by the two authorsREVIEWFrom Library Journal :::British illustrator Mills has used the music and lyrics of all of avant-garde musician Brian Eno's songs as the basis for the 57 mixed-media interpretations reproduced here (all in full color). Mills's surreal creations are rarely literal renditions of the texts, but rather represent personal interpretations, sometimes informed by Eno's commentary. They therefore can stand independently of the songs. Each illustration is accompanied by Eno's lyrics (most published here for the first time), along with notes by both Eno and Mills and extracts from their notebooks, illuminating the thought processes and working methods behind the songs and images. Poynor contributes five essays on Eno's artistic theory and practice. A fascinating, visually beautiful document. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory #ENO001

        Nobody Lives Forever

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1986. First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by John Gardner on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Future Bond author Raymond Benson said "This is far and away John Gardner's best James Bond novel, and it is precisely because it is such a personal plot for the leading character. It's a plot reminiscent of From Russia, With Love, and it moves along excitingly! The chase idea was splendid indeed, and the reader is chased along with Bond throughout the book." Benson praised the story's "many surprising turns" and believed that if it were a film it would "have much of the same tension that something like Hitchcock's North by Northwest had."

        LATER CHINESE PAINTING AND CALLIGRAPHY: 1800-1950, 3 VOLUMES

      1986 - ELLSWORTH, Robert Hatfield. LATER CHINESE PAINTING AND CALLIGRAPHY: 1800- 1950, 3 VOLUMES. New York, 1986. 10.5 x 15", 3 vols, xvi; xviii; xxiii, 399; 369; 281 pp., 875 color plates, 118 text-figures, text in English with Chinese captions, index, cloth, all edges gilt in gold, brown decorative clamshell style box with tipped in color plates. Condition Fine. The culmination of more than three decades of study and collecting, the three-volume Later Chinese Painting and Calligraphy: 1800-1950 is one of the most important, sumptuous publications of Asian Art. Taking a period that has been ignored and undervalued by scholars, curators, and collectors, Robert Ellsworth has produced a work that not only forces us to re-examine all previous assessments of that tumultuous era in Chinese art, but promises to launch a new wave of interest in, and appreciation for, its unique achievements. Through more than 850 superb examples from his own collection, the author shows how exposure to Western art led, in painting, to an extraordinary new diversity and vitality, and how archeological discoveries in China fueled a dazzling renaissance in calligraphy. Two of the three volumes reproduce 550 paintings and 325 calligraphies, representing the work of every major artist of the period in full color. The extensive commentaries in the third volume include biographies of each artist. Every calligraphy, inscription, and seal is transliterated into precise English. The breadth and depth of fresh scholarship, the quality of the art, and the luxurious production combine to make Later Chinese Painting and Calligraphy: 1800-1950 one of the monumental achievements in art book publishing in our century: an essential source book for anyone interested in Asian art, and an object of permanent beauty and value. **Due to size and weight, the shipping cost is $30.00 (USA addresses) or $95.00 (non-USA addresses).

Inscribed to Bernarda Shahn: "for Bernarda from Mary & John This is where John's work went after FSA." Collier was an FSA and SONJ photographer who went on to be one of the founders of Visual and Applied Anthropology, and this book became the standard textbook in the field. Ben Shahn was also one of the FSA photographers whose collective work probably transformed American photography. A nice association. .

LETTER, COVER AND INSCRIPTIONS ON PHOTOS HANDWRITTEN BY LEONARD BERNSTEIN Leonard Bernstein (/ˈbɜrnstaɪn August 25, 1918 - October 14, 1990) was an American composer, conductor, author, music lecturer, and pianist. He was among the first conductors born and educated in the United States of America to receive worldwide acclaim. According to Donal Henahan, he was "one of the most prodigiously talented and successful musicians in American history."[2] His fame derived from his long tenure as the music director of the New York Philharmonic, from his conducting of concerts with most of the world's leading orchestras, and from his music for West Side Story, Peter Pan,[3] Candide, Wonderful Town, On the Town and his own Mass. Bernstein was the first conductor to give numerous television lectures on classical music, starting in 1954 and continuing until his death. He was a skilled pianist,[4] often conducting piano concertos from the keyboard. As a composer he wrote in many styles encompassing symphonic and orchestral music, ballet, film and theatre music, choral works, opera, chamber music and pieces for the piano. Many of his works are regularly performed around the world, although none has matched the tremendous popular and commercial success of West Side Story. He is widely considered to be one of the greatest conductors of the 20th century Peter (Emmanuel) Gradenwitz (* 24. Januar 1910 in Berlin; † 27. Juli 2001 in Tel Aviv) war ein deutsch-israelischer Musikwissenschaftler. Gradenwitz studierte Musikwissenschaft in Freiburg bei Wilibald Gurlitt, in Berlin bei Arnold Schering und Curt Sachs sowie bei Gustav Becking an der Prager Universität, wo er 1936 über Johann Stamitz promovierte. Parallel hat er Komposition bei Julius Weismann und dem Schönberg-Schüler Josef Rufer studiert. 1934 musste er aus Deutschland emigrieren. Nach kürzeren Aufenthalten in London und Paris lebte er zunächst in Prag. Ende 1936 übersiedelte er nach Palästina. 1949 gründete er den ersten israelischen Musikverlag für Konzertmusik (Israeli Music Publications), den er bis 1982 leitete. Von 1966 bis 1977 lehrte er an der Universität Tel Aviv Musikwissenschaft, mit dem Schwerpunkt auf zeitgenössischer Musik. Er war zudem Mitbegründer der israelischen Sektion der International Society for Contemporary Music. 1980 ernannte ihn die Universität Freiburg zum Ehren-Professor. Gradenwitz forschte, lehrte und publizierte vor allem über die Stamitz-Familie, Arnold Schönberg und über moderne israelische Musik.

        Lore of Gold.

      Avoca, Nebraska:: Blue Heron Press,, 1986-1987.. Edition of 20. 6 x 9", 12 leaves, multi-color with sewn binding and blue hemp covers. Woodcut and letterpress on Okawara paper. Text in typeface of Garamont. A pairing of early texts with Kunc's contemporary art. The text is taken from three sources: The Stone of the Philosophers, an undated 17th-century work by George Starkey; the Golden Tractate of Hermes Trismegistus (fourth or fifth century); and, Of the Nature of Things by Paracelsus (Theophrastus von Hohenheim) from 1650. All three concern the process of making gold. "Now you shall understand that the Ancient Philosophers made division of the Water to separate it into four substances; one to two and three to one; the one third part of which is colour; which is a coagulating moisture; but the other two thirds are the Weights of the Wise. “Take an ounce and a half of the humidity; and the midday Redness, the soul of gold, take a fourth part which is half an ounce. Of the citrine Seyre take similarly half an ounce. Of the Auripigment take half (which are eight) thus making a total of three ounces; and you must know that the Vine of the Wise is drawn forth in three, and the Wine of it is perfected in Thirty...." Karen Kunc: "Text and full page woodcut illustrations alternate to create a vision and mystery surrounding the art of creation. Nature is animate within the medieval understanding and this contemporary imagery."
