        FläMISCHER KALENDER SIMON BENING - Faksimile Luzern

      Faksimile Verlag, Luzern 1987 - Hier verkaufen wir die Faksimile-Ausgabe des Flämischen Kalenders. Dieser, aus dem Kalenderteil eines Stundenbuches bestehend und somit ein Fragment darstellend, zeigt einen der schönsten Landschaftszyklen innerhalb eines Kalenders überhaupt. Er nimmt eine Schlüsselstellung in der Geschichte der flämischen Buchmalkunst des 16. Jahrhunderts ein - des Weiteren ein Höhepunkt in Benings künstlerischer Entwicklung als Landschaftsilluminator. Heute wird die Handschrift in der Bayerischen Staatsbibliothek, München, Clm 23638 aufbewahrt. Der Faksimile Verlag Luzern schuf 1987 in aufwändiger Handarbeit lediglich 980 Exemplare (streng limitiert und handnummeriert). Diese Faksimile-Ausgabe ist beim Verlag vergriffen und dort nicht mehr erhältlich. Angebotsumfang: 1 Band Faksimile, 1 Band wissenschaftlicher Kommentar, Schutzschuber (nicht abgebildet) - 60 Seiten im Originalformat von 14,0 x 10,4cm; Einband in violettem Samt eingebunden und insgesamt mit zwölf Rosetten, Ecken und Schließen aus echtem, massivem Sterling-Silber versehen; handumstochenes Kapitalband; 3-Seiten-Goldschnitt; vollständiges Kalendarium mit ganzseitigen Miniaturen; zahlreiche große und kleine Initialen; traumhaftes Buch für bibliophile Sammler und Kunstkenner; auf 980 Exemplare weltweit limitiert; Exemplar trägt Nr. 825; stammt aus gepflegtem Nichtraucherhaushalt; Samt beider Buchrücken durch Sonneneinstrahlung aufgehellt - dies wurde äußerst stark im Preis berücksichtigt (je nach Lichteinfall deutlicher zu sehen); (Verwendung von Bsp.-fotos eines bereits verkauften Exemplars); Schuber weist, seiner Funktion entsprechend, nur minimale Lagerspuren auf - Sammlerstück - Zum Werk: Die Kalenderfolge Benings offenbart Bild für Bild eine geschäftige und harmonisch geschlossene Gesellschaft. Einige Miniaturen zeigen die Tätigkeit oder die Vergnügungen des Monats neben gesellschaftlichen Ereignissen. Simon Bening revolutionierte die bildliche Darstellungsweise in Kalenderminiaturen. Er stellte die Kalenderdekoration auf die gleiche Stufe wie die detaillierten Programme der Andachtsbilder, die im Buch auf sie folgen. Zur Faksimile-Edition gehört ein über 480 Seiten fassender Kommentarband, der in drei Sprachen (deutsch/englisch/französisch) die Handschrift und ihr künstlerisches Umfeld wissenschaftlich erklärt.

"Un Coeur Simple" is Sherrie Levine's artist book published in conjunction with the 1990 exhibition "Affinities Selectives" held at Brussels' Paleis voor Schone Kunsten that takes the form of a textual appropriation after Gustave Flaubert's 1877 short story of the same title.

        American Prospects

      New York: Times Books, 1987. Tiny bump at the spine heel, boards a tad bowed, a solid near fine copy in a near fine jacket, sunned a but at the spine as is almost always the case, with a small crimp at the spine heel.. The true First Edition, with the number line ending in 2 and the "first edition" slug present (most copies offered are later printings misidentified as firsts). Oblong quarto. SIGNED by Sternfeld and dated in the year of publication. Sternfeld's photo travelogue of America: the bleak and the beautiful. With the great dust jacket image of a fireman buying a pumpkin at a farm stand while a house burns in the background. Expanding upon Stephen Shore's Uncommon Places, Sternfeld turns seemingly banal landscapes into sublime American archetypes. Yet one gets the feeling looking at these pictures that Shore and Sternfeld's America is gone. The vast rural vistas have been replaced with exurban sprawl, Home Depot and Walmart, while the urban decay has morphed into million dollar Harlem condos with Starbucks just out of view. (Parr / Badger, v2, 35; Roth 260-261; Open Book 338-339).

        Norwegian Wood.

      Kodansha, Tokyo 1987 - First Japanese editions and true firsts of the author's most well-known work. Octavo, 2 volumes. Both volumes are fine in fine dust jackets with the rare wrap-around bands present. Both volumes are signed by Haruki Murakami in Japanese. Rare, especially signed. Norwegian Wood is a nostalgic story of loss and sexuality. The story's protagonist and narrator is Toru Watanabe, who looks back on his days as a freshman university student living in Tokyo. Through Toru's reminiscences we see him develop relationships with two very different women — the beautiful yet emotionally troubled Naoko, and the outgoing, lively Midori. The novel is set in Tokyo during the late 1960s, a time when Japanese students, like those of many other nations, were protesting against the established order. While it serves as the backdrop against which the events of the novel unfold, Murakami (through the eyes of Toru and Midori) portrays the student movement as largely weak-willed and hypocritical. Murakami adapted the first section of the novel from an earlier short story, "Firefly." The story was subsequently included in the collection Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman.

        Il Merlo Ha Perso Il Becco

      Milano: Danese, 1987. Munari, Bruno. Oblong quarto. (6)ff. First edition. This book is an interpretation of an old Italian song for children about a blackbird who loses his beak, and was designed based on a concept that Munari first developed in 1940. In this creative children's book, Various parts of a blackbird are printed on transparent sheets of PVC plastic, so that in the beginning, the entire blackbird is visible. First, the poor blackbird loses its beak as the page is turned, and then its eye, wing, and leg, and so on, until all that is left is its heart. Below the illustration is the text of each verse of the song, and the chorus. Bound in flexible black plastic covers with a design of blackbirds on musical staves on the front, and the music to the song on the back, printed in white. Housed in a mylar sleeve, which also contains a folded sheet with a description of the book in a separate compartment. In fine condition. The book was originally accompanied by a cassette tape, which is missing from this set.

        Elamisches Wörterbuch (in 2 Bänden). Teil 1: A-H. Teil 2: I-Z.

      Berlin : Reimer, 1987.. 1392 S. Originalleinen.. Aus der Bibliothek von Prof. Dr. Wolfram Kleiss, langjährigem Leiter der Außenstelle Teheran des Deutschen Archäologischen Instituts. Ein gutes und sauberes Exemplar. - Ein Wörterbuch der elamischen Sprache gab es bisher nicht, weil der Sinn der meisten Wörter erst aus dem Satzzusammenhang erschlossen werden muß. Der einzige sichere Grundstock, den wir besitzen, sind die dreisprachigen (altpersischen, elamischen und babylonischen) Inschriften des Darius und - in geringerem Maße - des Xerxes; dieser Grundstock beläuft sich auf etwa 800 Wörter. Alles übrige muß durch Kombination erarbeitet werden. Infolgedessen sind die meisten Ubersetzungsvorschläge unsicher und erscheint als häufigstes Zeichen in unserem Wörterbuch das Fragezeichen. In das Elamische Wörterbuch aufgenommen wurden alle bis heute (1986) bekannten Wörter in elamischer Schrift. Das heißt also: außer allen elamischen Wörtern von der ältesten bis zur jüngsten Sprachstufe auch fremde Wörter in elamischer Überlieferung. Bei ihnen handelt es sich überwiegend um Eigennamen, vor allem um altpersische und medische, aber auch um altiranische Appellativa und Ortsnamen. Sie wurden nicht nur wegen ihrer Bedeutung für die Iranistik einbezogen, sondern vor allem deshalb, weil die Wiedergabe iranischer Wörter in elamischer Keilschrift für die Lautlehre des Elamischen entscheidend wichtig ist. In geringerem Maße gilt dieses auch umgekehrt für die Lautlehre des Altiranischen. Aufgenommen wurden ferner alle elamischen geographischen Bezeichnungen. Schließlich wurden in das Elamische Wörterbuch selbstverständlich auch jene elamischen Appellativa, Eigen-und Ortsnamen aufgenommen, welche in nichtelamischen Quellen bezeugt sind, also vor allem in Urkunden des Zweistromlandes. Hier blieben jedoch gewisse Lücken, die nur von Assyriologen ausgefüllt werden können. ISBN 3496009233
