        The Closing of the American Mind.

      New York, Simon and Schuster, 1987. Lex 8vo. Original half cloth with original dust-jacket (not price-clipped). A very nice, clean, tight, and bright copy. Only minor wear to lower capital of dust-jacket. 392, (2) pp.. First edition, first printing of this classic of modern intellectual thought, one of the most unexpected bestsellers, which made Bloom the most famous university professor in the Western world. The work created an amazing stir and was heavily criticized from all corners of the Western world. It likewise received amazing reviews, creating a buzz around the work which caused more than a million people to buy it within the first year. "An unparalleled reflection on today's intellectual and moral climate... That rarest of documents, a genuinely profound book." (Roger Kimball, The New York Times Book Review); "A grand tour of the American mind" (Washington Post Book World)."The first print run, in February 1987, numbered 10,000 copies. By late spring it was selling 25,000 copies a week. It hit the bestseller list in April, reached number one by summertime, and stayed there for two and a half months. You saw people lugging it around on vacation, bumping in the bottom of the beach bag against the tanning oil and the extra pair of flipflops and the latest waterlogged paperback from Ken Follett. From the top of the bestseller list it beat back waves of challengers, including can't-miss product: celebrity memoirs, self-help books, and an authoritative guide to surviving the "coming depression of the nineties." In March of the following year The Closing of the American Mind was still a bestseller. By then nearly a million copies had been sold in the United States. Foreign sales were just as prodigious. The best minds in American publishing were boggled. Never in their experience had a book about Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Friedrich Nietzsche, and Martin Heidegger outsold memoirs by Patty Duke, Shirley MacLaine, and Sam Donaldson-combined." (Andrew Ferguson, "The Book That Drove Them Crazy. Allan Bloom's 'Closing of the American Mind' 25 years later." In: The Weekly Standard, Apr. 9, 2012, vol. 17, no. 29).The success of Bloom's book was incomparable to any other work of that kind. Criticizing the American universities, and through that the modern American society, Bloom was the first to point to a trend that was to pervade all of society and ruin it from within. His seminal statement of the fall of culture and the crisis of liberal education is something that might have applied most aptly to Americanintellectual life, culture, and society at the time of the work, but which has proven to foreshadow what was to happen in Europe and what came to invade the culture of the rest of the Western world. To Europeans Bloom's groundbreaking work on the crisis of culture and education has never been more relevant than it is today. "The trends that followed the crisis in higher education that Bloom identified have only intensified since 1987: toward weaker academic requirements for students, greater specialization in the departments, a rigid orthodoxy in the university's politics and cultural life. The university we face today is still the one he described, only more so." (Andrew Ferguson)."The crisis of liberal education," Bloom wrote, "is a reflection of a crisis at the peaks of learning, an incoherence and incompatibility among the first principles with which we interpret the world, an intellectual crisis of the greatest magnitude, which constitutes the crisis of our civilization." (From the present work)."The critic Camille Paglia once called the book the "first shot in the culture wars," and whether or not it was the first it was undeniably the loudest and most ambitious." (Andrew Ferguson)

        The Sandragraph: Between Printing and Painting

      Los Angeles: Arundel Press, 1987. Oblong folio. 21ff., unbound as issued. One of fifty copies signed by the artist, Harry Reese. Reese's description of the sandragraphic process is accompanied by nine mounted samples of the process used in his Turkey Press books and six large prints. In 1984, using a Vandercook proof press, Reese began to make prints showing an unusual combination of relief printing, platemaking, and painting. These experiments in printmaking inspired the neologism "the sandragraph" and resulted in prints that Reese used both as illustrations in his Turkey Press books, and as separate works of art to be appreciated on their own. In brief, it is a collographic printmaking procedure whereby prints are made directly from surfaces that have been covered by cloth and acrylic polymer mediums, and the prints are then mounted and locked onto the flat bed of a printing press. An extremely fine copy housed in a morocco-backed clamshell box, which is slightly bowed and shows some scuffing at the head and foot of the spine. Reese's magnum opus, offered below publication price.

        Die Wenzelsbibel. Codices Vindobonensis 2759-2764., 8 Dokumentationsmappen mit jeweils 4 Faksimileseiten aus Band 1–8 der Wenzelsbibel in Originalgröße in einer Leinenkassette. Mit Einführung.

      Graz: Adeva, 1987 - Kassette etwas berieben. - Die Faksimile-Ausgabe der Wenzelsbibel, die auch heute noch weltweit umfangreichste Edition dieser Art, richtet sich wegen ihres hohen Preises naturgemäß nur an einen kleinen Kreis von Bibliotheken, Forschern und Buchliebhabern. Um dieses außergewöhnliche Bibel-Dokument aber auch einem breiteren Kreis ausschnittsweise zugänglich zu machen, wurden attraktive Dokumentationen zu Band 1–8 hergestellt. Beinahe 150 Jahre vor dem Erscheinen von Luthers Bibelübersetzung entstand in der wohl faszinierendsten Buchmalerschule des Mittelalters in Prag die älteste deutsche Prachthandschrift der Bibel. Etwa zwischen 1390 und 1400 wurde die monumentale Wenzelsbibel mit 646 Miniaturen und reichem, oft symbolbeladenem und erzählendem Randschmuck für König Wenzel I. von Böhmen geschrieben und gemalt. Die überaus aufwendige, ja sogar verschwenderische Ausstattung dieser Prachtbibel ist in Worten kaum darzustellen. Die besten Buchmaler Europas wurden von Wenzel an den Prager Hof gerufen, wo sie diese einzigartige Handschrift schufen; leider sind sie alle unbekannt geblieben. Sprache: de Gewicht in Gramm: 550

A poem by Blinn is accompanied by a watercolor illustration that extends across the central page spread, depicting three yellow balls floating on a cerulean pool surrounded by evergreen trees. The image is an homage to David Hockney, who made a series of paintings of swimming pools using vibrant shades of acrylic paint. The title page is accented with blue and yellow watercolor, and on the page following the poem is a palette of the watercolors that Blinn used in her illustration. Created by Blinn in the summer of 1987, the book is an ode to the season, bringing alive the bright colors, heat, and slower pace. Bound in tan cloth with a watercolor label evoking the undulation of water. Housed in a matching box backed in light green morocco. Laid in is a portfolio of materials describing the artist's process of imagining, writing, and designing the book. These include diagrams depicting ideas for the book's binding and eleven drafts of the text, evolving from prose to poetry, showing the author's changes. A lovely, scarce book produced in a very small limitation.

        In the Street

      Duke University Press, 1987. First edition of the photographer's second major photobook. Large quarto, original cloth. Signed by Helen Levitt on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Not to be confused with the more common paperback edition. Helen Levitt and the author James Agee first collaborated in 1945 on a documentary film set in Harlem, called "In the Street". Psychologist Robert Coles contribited the essays to this volume. Owen Edwards from The New York Times has noted that "[i]n common situations Miss Levitt finds the glint of an often bizarre beauty that most of us-including photographers-do not notice. . . . She brings to her pictures an intensity that can be almost hypnotic." "There is no fundamental difference in the great landscapes and quiet portraits of Edward Weston and the profoundly revealing pictures of children by Helen Levitt. Both are photographic perceptions of the highest order" (Ansel Adams).

      Munich And New York: Schellmann. No Binding. Fine. COLOR SCREENPRINT BY ANDY WARHOL. "This print was commissioned to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the Bavarian Reinsurance Company in 1987. It is based on a photograph of Neuschwanstein Castle, a nineteenth-century palace built by King Ludwig of Bavaria in the foothills of the Alps. Today it is an extremely popular tourist attraction and is the most photographed building in Germany. It has also featured in many aspects of contemporary culture from the cover of British band&#39;s Blur&#39;s &#39;Country House&#39; album to numerous computer games. Warhol&#39;s image combines a screenprinted photograph and hand-drawn lines which were also subsequently screenprinted. Through the colour combination, with the castle dramatically different from the landscape, Warhol creates a collaged effect - a characteristic of his work from the 1980s" (National Galleries of Scotland website). Color screenprint, 1987. Image size: 851x600 mm (33.5x23.63 in). Edition of 1200. With the artist&#39;s ink stamp, lower left. Printed by Rupert Jasen Smith, New York. Published by Schellmann, Munich and New York. See Feldman II.372. A spot of soiling at upper margin. A fine impression.
