        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

        The Epiphanies (Signed Limited Edition)

      New York : Vincent Fitzgerald & Co, 1987. Limited Edition . Hardcover. Fine. This is a signed limited edition of \"The Epiphanies\" published Vincent Fitzgerald & Co, New York in 1987 with a limitation of 50 copies with this being number 31. James Joyce wrote the 40 epiphanies contained in this work between the ages of 18 and 21 with the topics ranging from his childhood experiences to the death of his brother. Francesca Valente, the art historian, wrote an article on the use of epiphanies by James Joyce, \"Throughout his works, from Dubliners to Finnegans Wake, Joyce carried out his creative task by means of a series of epiphanies, a sequence of related moments of insight and understanding. The central meaning of Joyce\'s works is provided not so much by plot but by the revelation they suggest of a certain universe in a certain order.\" In preparing to illustrate \"The Epiphanies\", Susan Weil and Marjorie Van Dyke first produced forty interpretative paintings based on James Joyce\'s dream-inspired writings. The two artists and Vincent FitzGerald realized that the epiphanies fell into four categories: Death, Dreams, Games (primarily word games or puns), and Planes, and they designed the shape and size of the book based on Joyce\'s original manuscript pages. Susan Weil produced the artwork for \"Death\" and \"Planes\" and Marjorie Van Dyke did the artwork for \"Dreams\" and \"Games\". Measuring approximately 15 by 13 inches with the individual pages measuring 12 by 14 inches, \"The Epiphanies\" is a spectacular production that includes 64 etchings, original watercolors, collages, and handcuttings. The book\'s pages, melded into accordion folds, are designed so that phrases are first read out of context and are then brought into focus. The watercolor maquette for Susan Weil\'s \"Death\" section is a blending of nine separate images transformed into a sequential statement that \"evoked the sorrows and terrors of these five epiphanies about the death\" of Joyce\'s brother. The contents are housed in a grey silk clamshell box. The condition of the contents is FINE with the clamshell box in FINE- condition with some sunburning. The book is signed by Susan Weil and Marjorie Van Dyke on the limitation page.

        The Epiphanies (Signed Limited Edition)

      New York : Vincent Fitzgerald & Co, 1987. Limited Edition . Hardcover. Fine. This is a signed limited edition of \"The Epiphanies\" published Vincent Fitzgerald & Co, New York in 1987 with a limitation of 50 copies with this being number 31. James Joyce wrote the 40 epiphanies contained in this work between the ages of 18 and 21 with the topics ranging from his childhood experiences to the death of his brother. Francesca Valente, the art historian, wrote an article on the use of epiphanies by James Joyce, \"Throughout his works, from Dubliners to Finnegans Wake, Joyce carried out his creative task by means of a series of epiphanies, a sequence of related moments of insight and understanding. The central meaning of Joyce\'s works is provided not so much by plot but by the revelation they suggest of a certain universe in a certain order.\" In preparing to illustrate \"The Epiphanies\", Susan Weil and Marjorie Van Dyke first produced forty interpretative paintings based on James Joyce\'s dream-inspired writings. The two artists and Vincent FitzGerald realized that the epiphanies fell into four categories: Death, Dreams, Games (primarily word games or puns), and Planes, and they designed the shape and size of the book based on Joyce\'s original manuscript pages. Susan Weil produced the artwork for \"Death\" and \"Planes\" and Marjorie Van Dyke did the artwork for \"Dreams\" and \"Games\". Measuring approximately 15 by 13 inches with the individual pages measuring 12 by 14 inches, \"The Epiphanies\" is a spectacular production that includes 64 etchings, original watercolors, collages, and handcuttings. The book\'s pages, melded into accordion folds, are designed so that phrases are first read out of context and are then brought into focus. The watercolor maquette for Susan Weil\'s \"Death\" section is a blending of nine separate images transformed into a sequential statement that \"evoked the sorrows and terrors of these five epiphanies about the death\" of Joyce\'s brother.
