        Rare Orissa Manuscript

      18th Century, Orissa - This 18th century manuscript is hand written and painted on 135 (270 pages) palm leaves in Sanskrit with Oriya script. 5 or 6 lines per leaf, with original wooden end-boards. It depicts the famous story of Krishna Lila from the holy book Bhagavata Purana by Jagannath Das. It shows the birth of Krishna, his childhood in Brindaban, defeating the deamons, playing with the gopis etc. The manuscript starts with the miniatures of Ganesha and Krishna. There are about 270 miniatures in this manuscript and each leaf has two or three transversal decorations of plants, birds, fish and geometric figures. As the last leaf is numbered 156, it indicates that there were more leaves originally.This manuscript was examined by Mrs. Dipali Ghosh, head of the Indian Manuscript Department of the British Library. Mrs. Ghosh has confirmed the dating of this manuscript to the 18th century and was in her opinion in very good condition despite missing some leaves.In all events a rare manuscript in wonderful condition and bright colours.

Excellent condition with only minor signs of external shelfwear to the Volumes (corners and lower edges very slightly frayed) . All Volumes appear to be nearly unread. Very rare Collection ! Jean Henri Gaston Giraud (8 May 1938 – 10 March 2012) was a French artist, cartoonist and writer who worked in the Franco-Belgian bandes dessinées tradition. Giraud garnered worldwide acclaim predominantly under the pseudonym Mœbius and to a lesser extent Gir, which he used for the Blueberry series and his paintings. Esteemed by Federico Fellini, Stan Lee and Hayao Miyazaki among others, he has been described as the most influential bandes dessinées artist after Hergé. His most famous works include the series Blueberry, created with writer Jean-Michel Charlier, featuring one of the first anti-heroes in Western comics. As Mœbius he created a wide range of science fiction and fantasy comics in a highly imaginative, surreal, almost abstract style. These works include Arzach and the Airtight Garage of Jerry Cornelius. He also collaborated with avant-garde filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky for an unproduced adaptation of Dune and the comic book series The Incal. Mœbius also contributed storyboards and concept designs to numerous science fiction and fantasy films, such as Alien, Tron, The Fifth Element and The Abyss. In 2004, Moebius and Jodorowsky sued Luc Besson for using The Incal as inspiration for Fifth Element, a lawsuit which they lost. Blueberry was adapted for the screen in 2004 by French director Jan Kounen.

        Collection of books, manifestos, exhibition catalogs and original work related to the Czech post-war surrealist group Skupina Ra (Ra Group).

      Czech Republic, 1946-1987 - The Ra Group was a Czech post-war surrealist formation that became active in the late 1930s, existed illegally during the German Protectorate, and held public exhibits in the late 1940s, before again being banned as an ideologically hostile movement by the Czechoslovak Communist government in 1948. Its core group included writers Zdenek Lorenc and Ludvík Kundera (a cousin of Milan), and artists Josef Istler, Milos Korecek, Bohdan Lacina, Vilém Reichmann, Václav Tikal, and Václav Zykmund. Although surrealism was forbidden both by the Fascist Protectorate and the Communist government, it was a highly productive influence in Czech post-war art and literature, and various members of Skupina Ra continued their work even after Socialist Realism became the officially mandated program. In the group’s manifesto, which appears in Skupina Ra (1947), it distanced itself from “orthodox” and “analytic” interwar surrealism, especially that of Karel Teige’s Surrealist Group, noting that “the terrible years of cultural isolation during the Protectorate and the total break from foreign avant-gardes brought about this state of affairs” (cited in Derek Sayer, 2013, p. 405). Skupina Ra wanted to break with the traditional heavy reliance on theory in surrealism and with its emphasis on automatic methods, instead viewing surrealism more broadly, “as the extreme essence and concentration of all lyricism” (Skupina Ra, 13).This collection gathers the group’s two early programmatic anthologies – A zatím co válka (And while the war, 1946) and Skupina Ra (1946), which contain the group’s manifestos; later individual exhibition catalogs by Istler, Lacina and Hudecek; important examples of book design and illustration by Istler and Tikal, and literary works by members of the group. Also included is a set of nine original “Fokalky” by Milos Korecek, surrealist photograms inspired by Vítezslav Nezval’s interwar decals. Some works are unique, a large number are signed and inscribed, in one case by all members of the group. Other titles are not, or only scarcely, recorded in KVK and OCLC, making this collection a valuable resource for future studies of this still largely unexamined movement. Inquire for a list of titles and condition descriptions. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Tréfa. [The Joke.]

      AB Független Kiadó, Budapest 1987 - In publisher's illustrated wrappers, designed by László Rajk. Samizdat edition. First Hungarian edition. 372, (2) p. Samizdat edition of Kundera's 1967 novel "The Joke", that was banned in the Communist Hungary. Kundera's novel "The Joke" was first published in the time of the political liberalization in Czechoslovakia in 1967, just prior to the Prague Spring. The book was immediately translated into Hungarian and was about to be officially published in 1968. However due to the invasion of Czechoslovakia by the Warsaw Pact nations, among them Hungary in August 1968, the already printed and bound volumes never reached the bookstores, the title became banned, and most copies were destroyed. Eventually, twenty years later, in 1986, the book was first published in Hungarian, still underground, in this samizdat edition, by the AB Független Kiadó (AB Independent Publisher). Samizdat editions, mostly political pamphlets, appeared in Hungary in the 1970s in the poor form of carbon copies of typescripts. Later in the 80s the so-called Democratic Opposition in Hungary established semi-underground publishings, like "AB Független" to publish not merely political literature but also literature that was banned by the Communist politics, among others the works of Milan Kundera or George Orwell. Samizdat edition. First Hungarian edition.

      Doubleday Press, New York 1987 - First edition, signed Limited edition. Octavo, original blue leather, all edges gilt. One of 250 numbered copies, signed by George Bush. Fine in a fine slipcase. In this autobiography, written by a Vice President while still in office, George Bush looks at his previous career, from navy pilot in World War II to his financial success in the Texan oil fields in the 1950s. He then served three Republican presidents and survived encounters with Democratic Presidents Johnson and Carter. This book throws light on his years as congressman, UN Ambassador, Republican National Committee Chairman during Watergate, envoy to China and Director of the CIA. Bush also discusses the failings he believes led to the Iran-Contra affair. He offers anecdotal views on international figures - Reagan, Nixon, Kissinger, Mao, Gorbachev and Thatcher, and reveals the political issues he is championing for the presidency of the United States.
