        The fortifications of Armenian Cilicia. Dumbarton Oaks studies 23.

      Washington, DC : Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Coll., 1987 - XXXI, 288, 302 S. Aus der Bibliothek von Prof. Dr. Wolfram Kleiss, langjährigem Leiter der Außenstelle Teheran des Deutschen Archäologischen Instituts. - The largest, and politically the most significant, medieval Armenian settlement outside the confines of Armenia Major was in Cilicia. From approximately 1080 to 1375 a community of diverse origins was slowly fused into a unified kingdom. The Armenians prospered because of the intricate network of defenses that turned a natural concavity of the Taurus Mountains into a Mediterranean-based fortified march. This study is primarily a systematic assessment of the military architecture in that kingdom. Although most of these sites in Cilicia are Armenian, Muslim, Byzantine, and Crusader forts also come under close scrutiny. Part I is a digest and analysis of the formal survey of each fortification in Part II (the Catalogue). Since the latter includes discussions of the topography and history of each site, geographers and historians will find a wellspring of information. The narrative is supplemented by 78 plans and drawings, plus 569 black and white and 48 color photographs. ISBN 0884021637 Sprache: Englisch Gewicht in Gramm: 2550 Originalleinen mit Schutzumschlag.

Most of the images are from bike runs and rallies in California: Lake Isabella, Santa Barbara Pier, Tulare, Avila Beach, Pismo Beach, Cold Springs Tavern, and many more that are unidentified.

Aside from a few images of pets, both dogs and cats, the remaining photos are in various locales, usually with Harley-Davidson bikes and with other outlaw bikers, including one of the compiler with famous Hell's Angel author Sonny Barger. .

        Georgia O'Keeffe at Ninety: Signed poster with original First Day Issue Stamp

      Malcolm Varon, 1987. Fine poster/Fine frame. A beautiful scarce poster portrait of Georgia O'Keeffe close to her 90th birthday in October, 1977, as captured by long-time photographer of O'Keeffe and her paintings, Malcolm Varon. Signed by Varon on the bottom right of the poster. This special poster also includes the First Day of Issue of O'Keeffe's first commemorative stamp issued by the U.S. Post Office on May 23, 1996, 10 years after her death. She was similarly honored with another commemorative stamp in 2013 featuring a different painting. Finely framed in a quality metal aluminum frame with UV (conservation) plexiglass to preserve the poster. Overall the framed poster measures 28" wide by 20" wide. In the fall of 1977, Georgia O'Keeffe gave New York photographer Malcom Varon permission to take photographs of her and her life at Ghost Ranch in New Mexico. He had been at Ghost Ranch for several weeks photographing her paintings for an upcoming exhibition, which he had done on previous occasions, and he came to know Georgia O'Keeffe and her companion Juan Hamilton quite well during that time. Varon's striking photograph gives a wonderful insider's view of this famous artist as she neared her 90th birthday a month later. In our opinion, one of the best American painters to ever share her wonderful art, Georgia O'Keeffe (November 15, 1887 - March 6, 1986) was an American artist best known for her paintings of enlarged flowers, New York skyscrapers, and New Mexico landscapes. The large orange poppy was one of the several iconic images of her work. One of those fortunate (?) artists whose work was appreciated during her lifetime, Georgia O'Keeffe was elected to the American Academy of Art and Letters (1962), chosen as a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (1966), received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1977, and in 1985 was awarded the National Medal of Arts.

        Essays on economic decisions under uncertainty. (Presentation copy, signed and inscribed by Drèze.)

      Cambridge, etc.: Cambridge University Press, 1987. - Presentation copy of the First Edition, inscribed: 'For Jack/in recognition of his profound/influence on my early/thinking, as a token of/gratitude and friendship/Jacques/9-7-87'. xxvii, 424 pp. Original cloth. Near Fine, in near fine dust jacket. 'While working on the thesis, I started working with Franco Modigliani on savings decisions under uncertainty. I soon realised that many other chapters of microeconomic theory similarly called for extension to uncertainty. My volume of collected papers, Essays on Economic Decisions under Uncertainty, consists of several parts: individual as well as public decisions, market equilibrium, consumer as well as producer decisions, human capital and labour contracts – a breadth singled out for praise by John Hey in his kind review of the book. My alertness to the need of spelling out the extensions to uncertainty of many economic models is no doubt rooted in my early exposure to practical business situations: coping with uncertainty was part of the daily life of my father and of his customers' (Omar Licandro and Pierre Dehez, 'From uncertainty to macroeconomics and back: An interview with Jacques Drèze', on Licandro's European University Institute, Florence, Web site). 'Jacques Drèze was among the handful of economists responsible for resurrecting economic theory on continental Europe which had been left moribund for much of the century after the dissipation of the Lausanne School. The new European economics also came with a distinct flavor of its own: 'Non-Walrasian' theory. Also important in developing the theory of the firm and finance in the context of multiple ownership and the theory of equilibrium under uncertainty' (History of Economic Thought Web site; this book is included in the site's 'Major Works of Drèze). The 'Jack' who would have been closest to Drèze was Jack Hirshleifer, one of his visitors at the Center for Operations Research and Econometrics (CORE) in Louvain whose work is referred to many times in the text. But Hirshleifer's influence on Drèze could not be described as early, so I think a more likely possibility is Jack Muth, referred to twice in the text (pp. 402, 418). In Licando and Dehez, Drèze recalls, 'So, thanks to a 3-months deferment granted by the Belgian army, I spent the fall of 1954 at Carnegie, associating with Modigliani and Miller, but also Herbert Simon, Charnes and Cooper, Cyert and March or Jack Muth and the team developing Linear Decision Rules. I took there a course in multivariate statistics, to make up for the absence of any econometric teaching at Columbia, and discovered Operations Research, which proved valuable when I did my military service as an OR specialist (sic) working for the Quarter Master General.' A statement by Oliver E. Williamson, in 'Transaction Cost Economics: An Introduction' (Economics Discussion Paper 2007-3, March 1, 2007) lends credence to the thought Drèze would remember Muth fondly: 'Jacques Drèze, who was a visitor at Carnegie, speaks for me and many others in recalling his time at Carnegie as follows: 'Never since have I experienced such intellectual excitement' (1995, p. 123)' (Dreze 1995 = '40 Years of Public Economics – A Personal Perspective,' Journal of Economic Perspectives 9 (2): 111-130 (Spring).

        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. Sprache: English 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.

        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]
