        The Day of Creation.

      Victor Gollancz. London 1987 - First edition. DW. SIGNED PRESENTATION COPY FROM THE AUTHOR TO ANGHARAD RYDER. TOGETHER WITH TWO TWO-SIDED AUTOGRAPH LETTERS SIGNED AND FOUR AUTOGRAPH POSTCARDS FROM BALLARD TO RYDER. The letters are very interesting and also personal, for example he tells Angharad to be selective in her small safari through his novels, ".there's a pretty clear spectrum running from the visionary & idealistic (Crystal World and Unlimited Dream Co) to more or less out and out porn, as in Crash - though to me that's my most idealistic book of all." He talks about the part-autobiographical nature of "Empire" and how his experiences in the camps changed him, ".in the sense of reducing the moral authority of the received world to nil, and placing immense value on the power of the imagination to remake everything - rather psychotic really." And also, "Latin? My first love (a school in England.in the late 40's we even attempted Latin conversation - heroically pointless)". The other letter covers flying lessons, writers on flying and how learning to fly can signal a life about to change. He manages in both the letters and the postcards to be inspiring and present fresh ideas and his passion for life as he does in all his work. The book is fine in wrapper. The dedication states, "For Angharad, 'The aeroplane has unveiled for us the true face of the earth' - St. Ex All the best JG Ballard [two dots and a flourish]" [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Schliessen, 10 Beschläge; Kommentarbd.: OHLdr., Min. gebrauchspurig, tadell. VERGRIFFEN: Nr. 737 v. 980 Exemplaren (Letzter Verkaufspreis des Verlages: CHF 10.800.?). Die Faksimile-Edition ist bis ins kleinste Detail vollkommen originalgetreu im Originalformat von wiedergegeben. Die Weltchronik spannt sich über 436 Seiten, während "Strickers" Epos über Karl den Großen 152 Seiten einnimmt. Auch die 58 Miniaturen, die fast alle ein Format von 14 x 10 cm aufweisen, sind in ihrem spiegelnden Reflex und dreidimensionalen Eindruck reproduziert. Die Blätter wurden originalgetreu randbeschnitten und das Kapitalband von Hand umstochen. Der Einband entspricht in allen Teilen dem Originaleinband. Er besteht aus Nappa-Rindsleder und ist mit 16 Messingbeschlägen versehen. Der wissenschaftliche Kommentarband rückt auf fast 400 Seiten die Handschrift ins Licht einer neuen, umfassenden Betrachtung.Zu diesem Zweck haben sich folgende Experten intensiv mit der Materie rund um die wundervolle Handschrift beschäftigt: Prof. Dr. Ellen J. Beer, Ordinarius für Kunstgeschichte des Mittelalters an der Universität Bern; Prof. Dr. Johannes Duft, Stiftsbibliothekar in St.Gallen, Honorarprofessor für mittelalterliche Geistesgeschichte an der Universität Innsbruck; Prof. Dr. Hubert Herkommer, Ordinarius für Germanische Philologie an der Universität Bern; Dr. Karin Schneider, Handschriftenabteilung der Bayerischen Staatsbibliothek München; Prof. Dr. Stefan Sonderegger, Ordinarius für Germanische Philologie an der Universität Zürich, und Prof. Dr. Peter Wegelin, Kantonsbibliothekar in St.Gallen.Das Lieblingsbuch des Mittelalters. Seit Jahrhunderten wird in St. Gallen eine ausgesprochen ritterliche Prachthandschrift des Spätmittelalters aufbewahrt. Dieser Codex bildet in Schrift und Sprache, in Miniaturmalerei und Verserzählung einen Höhepunkt der oberdeutschen Gotik. Die dichterische und malerische Ausgestaltung erzählt Weltgeschichte, wie sie sich den Augen und Ohren einer ritterlichen Gesellschaft in vornehmer Tafelrunde bei einem Becher Wein präsentierte.Um 1300 ließ ein höfischer Auftraggeber zwei mittelhochdeutsche Dichtungen auf Pergament schreiben und mit belebten Szenen auf Goldgrund illuminieren. Die erste Niederschrift dieser Werke lag damals schon ein halbes Jahrhundert zurück. Es handelt sich um die Weltchronik des Rudolf von Ems und das Leben Karls des Großen, geschildert von einem unbekannten Autor, genannt Der "Stricker".Das Alte Testament als Hauptquelle der Weltgeschichte In seinen letzten Lebensjahren schrieb Rudolf von Ems auf Veranlassung des Stauferkönigs Konrad IV. eine Weltchronik in über 33000 paarweise gereimten Versen. Sie behandelt in mittelhochdeutscher Sprache die Geschichte von der Erschaffung der Welt bis zum Tode König Salomos. Die Weltchronik dürfte im ausgehenden Mittelalter zu einer der beliebtesten Dichtungen geworden sein, weil sie es verstand, biblische Geschichte in der Sprache der Zeit zu erzählen. Hier wurde biblisches Heilsgeschehen von der Betrachtung der Vergangenheit in die Bewährung der Gegenwart geführt. Dahin sollten den Leser auch die kostbaren Bilder geleiten: etwa von überschlanken Frauengestalten in wallenden Gewändern, von tapferen Rittern in Rüstung begleitet. Sie führen die Geschichte längst vergangener Jahrhunderte in die Erlebnisnähe des gotischen Hochmittelalters.So wurde die St. Galler Handschrift über den Bodenseeraum hinaus zum Vorbild späterer Bilderchroniken und in unserer Zeit zu einem wertvollen Zeugnis deutscher Miniaturkunst des Mittelalters.Karl der Große - Idealbild des christlichen Herrschers.Das im Spätmittelalter vielgelesene Epos des "Strickers" geht in seinem Ursprung auf das altfranzösische Rolandslied zurück, das vom Regensburger "Pfaffen Kon [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Never have flowers-that most uplifting of subjects-appeared so woebegone. Seldom has the manic activity of industrial manufacture seemed so pointless. And the Nova Scotia landscapes and still lifes-beautiful, bleak, elegiac-reveal an artist at the height of his powers but hardly at peace with the world or himself."

        Chuck Berry: The Autobiography ***Signed***

      Harmony Books, New York, NY 1987 - Signed "Chuck Berry" on title page in blue ink. Perhaps the most influential performer in the history of rock 'n' roll, guitarist Chuck Berry was born on October 19, 1926 in St. Louis, Mo. and developed a love of the blues and poetry as a child. By high school he was playing guitar, and quickly became a fixture on the local club scene, performing blues, rockabilly and pop. By the early '50s Berry had his own band and was one of the most popular African-American musicians around, though little-known outside of his community. In 1955 Berry made rock history with the single "Maybellene," a version of the hillbilly standard "Ida Red" recorded for the blues label Chess Records. The Top 20 tune crossed over to white audiences and pioneered the rhyming lyrics, steady beat and guitar solo which would characterize rock 'n' roll for years to come, influencing countless bands. Over the next few years Berry wrote numerous early rock standards such as "Roll Over Beethoven" and "Johnny B. Goode," becoming one of the most successful, popular musicians of any race among American youth. Berry made frequent television and film appearances, further breaking down color and music barriers. By the early '60s Berry's music had spread to Britain, where it inspired groups like the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, who copied his style and covered many of his tunes. He became as big a star in the U.K. as he had been in the U.S., touring and recording all the while. Towards the end of the decade, as blues became more accepted among mainstream audiences, Berry shifted towards slower, bluesier material, remaining quite popular among fans old and young alike. During the 1970s he continued to record albums for Chess, appear on TV specials, and play the oldies circuit. By the 1980s Berry had slowed down, but he remained as popular as ever among new generations of rock musicians who owed their livelihood to his early innovations. In the past decade Berry has been awarded numerous honors, written a popular autobiography, and appeared in numerous documentaries. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        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. Fine. See an Image. [Attributes: First Edition]
