        California Time.

      (Postenkill, NY Kaldewey Press 1987) - Folio. (36)pp. One of forty-five copies in a plexiglass binding by Christian Zwang of Hamburg. Signed by the author/artist/printer, Gunnar Kaldewey. With numerous monochromatic and two-tone illustrations. Written, illustrated, designed, and printed by Gunnar Kaldewey as Volume 5 of the Kaldewey Press series. In 1977, Kaldewey printed New York, his first book about America. Ten years later, California Time was published as a counterpoint to that volume. In it, Kaldewey offers his observations about California's landscapes, both natural and manmade, in prose that ranges from playful to bleak. He sees the landscape with an artist's eye, describing the "simmering city" and the "juicy orange of the West." These verbal images are illustrated in Kaldewey's stylized manner, including one double-page spread showing the Pacific Ocean in aqua and gray on a transparency. A remarkable production by one of America's leading contemporary book artists. Housed in an orange cloth folding box, lettered in silver on the front cover and spine. Together with the original woodblock to the first illustration in the book. Printed in silver, the illustration is of a palm tree, placed across from the text: "It is the sun, the cars and the palm trees. A lot of light. Everything has to do with light." The block was inscribed on the back by Kaldewey in 1988. (Von Lucius, p. 67-69). [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Bowu Zhi; An Annotated Translation

      Skrifter Utgivna Av Foreningen for Orientaliska Stuoier, 20, Stockholm, Sweden 1987 - SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY AUTHOR. "This dissertation has a two-fold purpose. Firstly, it provides an annotated translation of the full text of the Bowu Zhi by Zhang Hua (232-300), an intriguing early mediaeval work that contains passages which throw interesting light on a number of fields in mediaeval Chinese scholarship and the development of traditional Chinese science. As reference to the Bowu Zhi is rendered difficult by the parlous state of the text, a full translation with accompanying textual reconstructions where necessary was unavoidable, to which has been added a brief study of Zhang Hua. The second purpose of this dissertation is to attempt to gain a clearer understanding of the textual authenticity of the various extant editions of the Bowu Zhi, and thus determine whether the Bowu Zhi is a reliable source of mediaeval Chinese scholarship. The Bowu Zhi is widely held to be a refacimento, dating from the Song or even the Ming dynasties, to which later interpolations have been added at an unknown date along with commentaries by two previously unidentified scholars. The author of this dissertation discusses and rejects the refacimento theory, suggesting that one current edition of the Bowu Zhi may be traceable to thge early Tang dynasty, and also attempts to identify the authors of the two commentaries. While a full study of the content of the Bowu Zhi must await reserarch on the hundreds of enigmatic quotations from the Bowu Zhi found throughout Chinese literature but not within the pages of current editions, in his conclusion the author of the dissertation briefly points to four inter-related topics which demonstrate the Bowu Zhi's importance in the comprehension of traditional Chinese science." Very good blue pictorial trade paperback. Faded cover and spine, slight wear, soiling. 1987, 8vo, [4], 328pp. Abstract tipped in, 2 errata pages tipped in. Notes pages 184-277 Bibliography of Chinese and Japanese titles pages 278-328 [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Poems. Translated by Michael Feingold. Illustrated by Neil Welliver.

      Vincent FitzGerald & Company, New York 1987 - First Edition in English of Ibsen's poems, one of 75 copies only, with six etchings, including a double page fold-out. Page size: 8-1/2 x 11-1/2". These etchings were executed in the roullette mezzotint medium by Welliver with the assistance of the master printer, Shigemitsu Tsukaguchi (who prints only for Welliver and Lichtenstein) in this painstaking method resulting in the subtle coloring in each plate. Printed on handmade Dieu Donne' paper by Dan Keleher at the Wild Carrot Letterpress in Perpetua, this is a splendid literary event. Michael Feingold, lead drama critic of THE VILLAGE VOICE for the past decade, is internationally known for his translations of Kurt Weill, Brecht, and Ibsen's prose plays, THE PRETENDERS and WHEN WE DEAD AWAKEN. He is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, NEA Translation Fellowship, and the American Book Award's Lowenfels Prize for Criticism. The late Neil Welliver, celebrated for his ability to merge Abstract Expressionist and representational techniques, has his work in the Whitney, MOMA, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Hirschhorn, Boston, Houston, Baltimore and Philadelphia's museums. He was Professor of Fine Arts at the University of Pennsylvania and resided in Lincolnville, Maine, where the rocky and wooded landscape that figures so frequently in his works bears a strong kinship to the Northern vistas celebrated by Ibsen.

        JHK/ [Paper-Re-Making] Book No. (55) One from seven. [Handbound & handmade book by J. H. Kocman; produced from 7 other books.].

Approx. size: 19 x 13 cm Binding in brown leather Hand made by J. H. Kocman in spring 1987 Signed by a blind stamp [JHK in an oval + -09-] on the last page of the end paper" [upper right corner, back paste down]. [signed] JH K. Size of binding: 7 x 9 1/4", contains 42 unnumbered leaves of his specially produced, "re-made" gray-toned, thick, deckle-edged paper, with small bits of Czech, or other language texts (from the 7 ground-up books mentioned above) visible, & sheet #40 shows mounted portions of titlepages of Czech books "pulped" to produce a later book ( No. -09-). Bound with thick, heavy boards covered in a dark brown, roughly-brushed, suede-type leather, with several, darker, transverse, angular lines running across both covers, formed from joining the leather together. In fine condition. A few words by Jiri Valoch about Kocman's experiments in bookbinding & papermaking (slightly edited): “In the year 1979 Kocman’s interest in paper takes the form of his own production of hand-made paper – it is his aim to enliven the traditional way of hand [made] paper production as [an] original ‘art’ category, which he called paper re-making. (By the way: such a conception is near to the understanding of hand [made]paper in Japanese culture). Gradually, he accentuates the various aspects of paper creation and at last he ranges the process of its rise into further semantic contexts [sic]. First he produced hand [made]paper from original raw materials which were soaked in water and ground on [in a] mixer into a water suspension, after adding glue, the paper pulp was put in layers on a felt base, on which the size of the sheet is limited by a frame. The sheet thus gained is pressed to remove the surplus water and dried by air. The result[s] of this work are individual variants of hand [made] paper; analogously, as in [Kocman’s] first bookbinding experiments the results had been the ‘fulfilment and non-fulfilment’ of the rules of bookbinding; thereby, the author [Kocman] is interested in the visual and the haptic [tactile] qualities of the created sheets, their micro-structure and the lyrical character of the detail[s] (this interest has been one of the constants of Kocman’s work for more than ten years now [1980]). In controlling the possibilities of technology, he used as raw material cuttings of hand[made]paper from Velke Losiny, later he emphasized the specific characteristics of the various kinds of paper by [using] some component (Cotton and Flax Paper), which changed their visual or haptic quality. Tea papers were made by mixing tea leaves into the paper pulp and they thus created a document of the author’s private relation to tea (similarly ‘Tobacco Paper’ resulted from a stimulus that allowed him to materialize his own relation to the personality of Josef Vachal). Later he became interested in the transformations of machine papers – he ground beautiful Ingres papers and remade them into ‘Hand-[made]Ingres’. His work with printed paper then led to the destruction of printed texts, [books] to their disintegration into words, syllables, letters or their fragments – here not only the matter [material] of the paper is transformed, but also the text, which in the newly created sheets of hand [made] paper forms a kind of chance ‘three-dimensional collage'."

        Paraaf - Limited Edition; signed, presentation, Association; Laid-in Ephemera, ALS

      No Location: No Publisher, 1987 [no place] [probably Tallinn, Estonia]: [no publisher], 1987. Limited edition, this being #165 (of 250). Signed, warmly inscribed, dated by the author on the flyleaf, signed again at the limitation page, and signed yet again beneath a beautiful tipped-in sample of a relief-raised bookplate by Toots, centered on black & gray designed page as the apparent final introductory page. Also, two items of laid-in ephemera including ALS (see description below). See scans. Quarto, unpaginated, oriental binding of maroon leatherette boards, "Paraff" in gilt calligraphy on the cover, gilt spine titling. A collection of many of the professionally commissioned works of celebrated Estonian calligraphic artist Villu Toots, including a large number of individualized bookplates designed by him, between 1951 and 1987. Color and black and white works are shown, many full-page. Introduced and indexed by Toots. Signed, very warmly inscribed and dated by him (Tallinn, June, 1988) to Don M. Moy, a contributing editor of Fine Print, at the flyleaf, with two more signatures as above. Laid in are a card from Toots to Moy, in posted envelope, in which he thanks Moy for an Ex Libris monogram by K.E. Fossberg, saying "I have done nothing to deserve such great kindness.." Also laid in, also in posted envelope to Moy, is Toots' business card, with the inscription "We meet July 1988 - Villu", as well as a beautiful folded Christmas 1990 greeting, in green and red calligraphic design by Toots, also signed. Presumably, the business card was misplaced to the newer envelope from the older, but are left as-is. Toots in so admired in his specialty that, among other honors, he has had several new typefaces named for him - not to mention the posh Harrogate, England restaurant of the same name. An enchanting collection, in a handsome, near fine binding, of works from the most productive decades of the great calligrapher's life. LG6
