        Y Beibl Cyssegr-lan 1588

      Aberystwyth: National Library of Wales, 1987 In brown cloth with blind tooling. Spine has title in gilt, some blind tooling. Internally, cream endpapers, title page in black inks, (iii), 555 pp, a few spots along text block edges, with its slipcase. A dedication, in Welsh, from the author Ieuan Gwynedd Jones to Harlech College to fep. A University of Wales production which is a facsimile copy of the 1588 Bishop Morgan Bible, an edition limited in numbers to 500 copies only, and now very difficult to find. A lovely copy of an important and always useful title! Morgan, bishop of St Asaph and biblical translator has been called ‘the single most important figure in the history of the Reformation in Wales’ (Williams, Wales and the Reformation, 342), because it was he who brought to completion the translation of the Bible into Welsh. The Book of Common Prayer, including the psalter, and the New Testament had been translated in 1567, but the task was left unfinished. See ODNB.

        Color. [Broadside]

      [Claremont, California:] Scripps College Press, 1987]. One of seventy copies. Broadside. Matted and framed, to 23 1/2" x 32 1/2." The title "Color" in a multi-color design across the top of the page, twenty hand-painted color swatches in Windsor-Newton Designers Gouache by the Typography class at Scripps College, each color with accompanying handset text in various typefaces. Printed on Somerset Satin. Fine condition. The "Color" Broadside was made as a preliminary study for what was published as The Color Book in the same academic semester. The book's purpose was to explore color. The students were asked to paint a swatch of one of the Windsor-Newton Designers Gouache colors and describe it. Since that is impossible, they developed poetic descriptions. These descriptions were printed on this broadside with color swatches hand-painted underneath. The book included the printed descriptions with a linoleum cut above the description

        Blue Water, Yellow Balls

      Warwick Press (Easthampton, MA): Warwick Press, 1987. Quarto. (4)pp., accordion-fold. One of twenty copies signed by Carol Blinn, who wrote, illustrated, and printed this book. 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.

        Flämischer Kalender. Clm. 23638 Bayerische Staatsbibliothek München. Faksimile & Kommentarband. 2 Bde.. Clm. 23638 Bayerische Staatsbibliothek München. Faksimile & Kommentarband. (2 Bde.).

      Kl.8° (14,0 x 10,4 cm). Faks.: 30 Bl., zahlreiche Miniaturen. Kommentarbd.: 482 S., 46 Taf., Faks: Violetter Samt m. zwölf Rosetten, Ecken und Schließen aus echtem, massivem Sterling-Silber; Kommetarbd. Samt m Rückenschild., Tadell. Nr. 244 von 950 Exemplaren. Das Fragment eines Stundenbuches aus dem 16. Jahrhundert ist einer der schönsten Landschaftszyklen und ein Meilenstein flämischer Buchmalerei. Simon Bening revolutionierte in diesem Werk die Kalenderminiaturen, indem er ihnen je zwei Seiten einräumte und sie als eigenständige Szenen behandelte. Simon Benings Flämischer Kalender, der aus dem Kalenderteil eines Stundenbuches besteht und somit ein Fragment ist, stellt einen der schönsten Landschaftszyklen innerhalb eines Kalenders überhaupt dar. Er ist nicht nur ein Meilenstein flämischer Buchmalerei des 16. Jahrhunderts, sondern auch ein Höhepunkt in Benings künstlerischer Entwicklung als Landschaftsilluminator. Kalendarien sind Abschnitte am Beginn eines Andachtsbuchs, in denen die Feste des Kirchenjahres aufgeführt werden. Vielerlei Tätigkeiten sowie Tierkreiszeichen, die mit dem jeweiligen Monat in Verbindung stehen, charakterisieren traditionsgemäß die einzelnen Monate. Da die Monatsarbeitenmeist landwirtschaftliche Tätigkeiten wie die Bestellung von Acker und Feldin freier Natur stattfinden, spielten Landschaften und Ausschnitte davon eine besondere Rolle in der Kalenderdekoration während des gesamten Mittelalters. Im Spätmittelalter erleichterte zudem eine neue Auffassung von der Natur die Entwicklung der Landschaftsdarstellung in illuminierten Kalendern. Ein Kalender enthielt im allgemeinen elf Landschaftsminiaturen. Eine oder auch zwei waren zumeist der Darstellung eines Innenraumes vorbehalten. Bening revolutionierte die bildliche Darstellungsweise in Kalenderminiaturen. Er stellte die Kalenderdekoration auf die gleiche Stufe wie die detaillierten Programme der Andachtsbilder, die im Buch auf sie folgen. In illuminierten Stunden- und Gebetbüchern war oft ein kleiner Streifen unterhalb des Textes für Illustrationen benutzt worden. Bening dagegen war seit einem Jahrhundert der erste Künstler, der ganzseitige Kalenderminiaturen malte, und er war der erste, der sie als eigenständige Szenen behandelte, die ein möglichst genaues Abbild der Umwelt ergeben sollten. Kein anderer Künstler vor Pieter Breugel d.Ä. erkundete die Landschaft so systematisch wie Bening. Er malte verschiedene Landschaftstypen mit einer erstaunlichen topographischen Vielfalt; ebenso schilderte er die unterschiedlichsten Wetterlagen. Seine Landschaften sind poetisch: mit Empfindsamkeit beobachtet, präzis komponiert und voller Atmosphäre. Damit hat er einen wichtigen Beitrag zum erhöhten Ansehen der Landschaft in der flämischen Kunst geleistet. Diese poetische Kalenderfolge Benings offenbart Bild für Bild eine geschäftige und harmonisch geschlossene Gesellschaft. Einige Miniaturen zeigen die Tätigkeit oder die Vergnügungen des Monats neben gesellschaftlichen Ereignissen. In unserem Kalenderzyklus ist im Vergleich zu anderen Handschriften die Bedeutung der traditionellen Monatsarbeiten allerdings zurückgenommen. Nun wird den Vergnügungen der Oberschicht mehr Raum zugestanden. Diese Miniaturen weisen eine strukturelle Geschlossenheit, eine Subtilität der Farben und atmosphärischen Effekte auf, die in der flämischen Kunst jener Zeit selten waren. Auf dem Januar-Bild etwa werden ein Holzhacker in der freien Natur sowie Personen gezeigt, die sich in einem nahe gelegenen Innenraum an einem Feuer wärmen; beides Tätigkeiten, die den Winter symbolisieren. Im rückwärtigen Teil des Hauses und hinter dem Haus gehen andere Bauern ihrer Arbeit in dem verschneiten Dorf nach. Den Bildern der flämischen Landschaft werden auch andere Motive an die Seite gestellt, so etwa die Liebeswerbung. Solche »romantischen« Motive waren immer schon Bestandteil der flämischen Kalenderikonographie. Die älteren Kalender integrierten meistens eine oder zwei solcher Szenen in die Serie. Hier sind es sogar drei; gezeigt werden Liebespaare in einem Garten, ein Paar bei einer Bootsfahrt oder ein Ball in einem eleganten flämischen Haus. Für die Kalenderbilder insgesamt fand Simon Bening in Gestalt der zweiseitigen Miniaturen eine neue Form, um vor allem den Mittel- und Hintergrund zu erweitern. Es ist eine Entwicklung, die in letzter Konsequenz zu den Landschaften eines Pieter Breugel führen sollte. Die Faksimile-Edition Alle 60 Seiten des Flämischen Kalenders im Format von 14,0 x 10,4 cm wurden getreu dem Original faksimiliert. Die Faksimile-Edition erschien in einer weltweit einmaligen, streng auf 980 Exemplare limitierten Auflage. Der Kommentarband (deutsch/englisch/französisch) erklärt wissenschaftlich die Handschrift und ihr künstlerisches Umfeld. Thomas Kren, Curator of Manuscripts am J. Paul Getty Museum in Malibu bespricht die Entwicklung der Landschaft in der flämischen Buchmalerei und analysiert die Miniaturen der Handschrift, und Prof. Dr. Johannes Rathofer, Universität Köln, erläutert die Texte der Handschrift.

        American Prospects

      Times Books in association with the Museum of Fine Arts Houston Texas New York: Times Books in association with the Museum of Fine Arts Houston Texas. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. FIRST EDITION of Sternfeld's first and most celebrated photobook, illustrated with fifty-five color photographs. "Joel Sternfeld travelled the country for around eight years with a 8x10 view camera and colour film, a sojourn that produced his first and best-known book, American Prospects... The particular quality brought by Sternfeld to the 8x10 colour-landscape aesthetic... is a clear sense of narrative... In American Prospects, each picture suggests an arcane drama being played out-an elephant stranded on a road in Oregon, or a pumpkin stall in Virginia behind which a house burns fiercely. These narrative hints are suggestive, sly, often ironic, frequently mysterious, making American Prospects less a series of photographs than a series of tales-unfinished, elliptical certainly-that add up to a cogent and persuasive view of America..." (Parr/Badger, The Photobook). Roth 260.New York: Times Books, in association with the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas, 1987. Oblong quarto (255x302mm), original gray cloth, original photographic dust jacket. A hint of bowing to boards, otherwise book and dust jacket fine.

        Unpublished Archive

      1987-1992. In 2002, James Harmon edited Take My Advice: Letters to the Next Generation from People Who Know a Thing or Two, the compiled wisdom of more than 70 writers, artists, critics and other notable figures. Harmon had begun his project more than a decade earlier but was waylaid by negotiations with publishers over the advisors and advice to be included in the book. This archive includes 16 manuscript or typescript responses not included in the book, by Edward Albee, Paul Auster, Nicholson Baker, Rick Bass, Jim Burke, Frederick Busch, Evan Connell, Roald Dahl, Herbert Gold, Witold Gordon, Thom Gunn, Barry Lopez, Jill McCorkle, Walker Percy, Hubert Selby, and Tom Wolfe. Each response is signed by its author. Edward Albee offers an autograph note signed, with the advice "Live as though your life depended on it." Paul Auster declines to advise, although in an autograph letter signed he does say that "Once I reach moral perfection in my own life, then maybe I'll have something to say to others." Nicholson Baker's autograph note signed apologizes for not pulling himself together and responding (his letter is dated 2-5 years after the others). Rick Bass's typed letter signed advises (with supportive reasoning) reading, walking in the woods, wearing one's seatbelt, being prepared for others' greed exceeding one's passion, and taking big jumps. James Lee Burke's 1990 typed letter signed, with holograph corrections and postscript, waxes political, in small part: "In my view we have made some very bad national choices in the last twenty-five years and have allowed hucksters, actors, and militarists to convince us that greed and power politics are not only acceptable ethically but are also genuine values that are part of our tradition." His advice is phrased as more of a hope, that the next generation does a better job. Frederick Busch, in a humble typed letter signed, opines that "writers don't give advice, they enflesh mistakes," but he does come around to offering several sentences in the vein of "...the most and best of what I know about art and the life it salutes: Otherness is what most of this seems to be about--the celebration of what is not the self, the adoration of those who are not the self, the caretaking of those outside our bodies, psyches, histories..." Evan Connell's typed note signed states, "Do not trust the leaders. They may or may not be telling the truth. And regardless of their integrity, or lack thereof, many of them are quite stupid." Roald Dahl's offer, in a typed note signed, is: "Be kind to all men and women and children and if you are a male endeavour to lose your inherent aggression as soon as you possibly can." Herbert Gold, in a typed letter signed, contributes seven sentences, each saying some version of "Read." Witold Gordon, in an autograph note signed, notes that any advice he had for his own generation "went (sensibly?) unheeded" but suggests that the next generation "not be fruitful and not multiply to any great extent." Thom Gunn, in an autograph note signed, declines to contribute as he can't think of anything that would be appropriately universal and confesses he would tend to the subversive. Barry Lopez first sends a typed postcard signed agreeing to contribute and then follows through with two typed pages (unsigned) that eloquently delve into three rules for humans in general and another three for writers in particular, in brief: (for all) to pay attention, to take nothing for granted, to be discerning; and (for writers) to read, to stand for something, and to get out of town. Jill McCorkle's autograph postcard signed agrees to participate, but if she did, her contribution is not included here. Walker Percy's autograph letter signed urges self-knowledge: "Unless you are a genius or a saint, you do not know who you are or why you find yourself in this life. If this is the case, you'd better find out. This means undertaking a search. The main sin of someone in this situation is not undertaking the search." Hubert Selby explicitly internalizes the search, in a typed letter signed: "We all have an absolutely perfect guidance system within us, but we haven't learned how to listen to it...We become what we teach...And ultimately there is only one way of teaching anything and that is how we LIVE!" Selby also cautions that one should neither seek nor accept advice, that instead one should find someone with the same problem, ask them what they did and what the results were of their action. And Tom Wolfe, in an autograph note signed, concludes with, "As soon as you know your answer is no, say no; don't wait for a more appropriate moment." All items are near fine or better. Most of the original mailing envelopes are included. Included is a copy of the book as published, lacking all of the above authors and their wisdom. A virtual alternate-book, with responses equally as interesting and/or thought-provoking as the published ones. .

        Neuschwanstein

      Schellmann 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's Blur's 'Country House' album to numerous computer games. Warhol'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; nationalgalleries.org).Color screenprint, 1987. Image size: 851x600 mm (33.5x23.63 in). Edition of 1200. With the artist'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.

        Byen bag regnen. Fotografier fra København af Krass Clement ('The City Behind the Rain: Photographs from Copenhagen by Krass Clement'). FIRST EDITION .

      Copenhagen: Gyldendal, 1987. Oblong8vo. Publisher's original illustrated wrappers. 153 pp. Illustrated throughout. Only minimal light wear to cover and edges. Internally clean and overall a very attractive copy.. Mainly famous for his book 'Drum' (1996) included in Parr & Badger, but the rest of Krass Clement's oeuvre is equally outstanding: 'The City Behind the Rain', Krass Clement's 4th book is a photo book masterpiece with black-and-white photographs from Copenhagen - one of his most sought after works. Beautifully designed book with charcoal grey and black wrappers matching the melancholic style of Krass Clement's photographs. This photo book was his breakthrough (in Denmark/Scandinavia) and by collectors and the artist himself considered the capital work. It is also one his most accessible books with very classic b/w photography influenced by both the nocturnal Brassaï & Cartier-Bresson and Robert Frank, though the Copenhagen seen through Krass Clement's Leica is his very own. First edition. More pictures available upon request

Internally, cream endpapers, title page in black inks, (iii), 555 pp, a few spots along text block edges, with its slipcase. A University of Wales production which is a facsimile copy of the 1588 Bishop Morgan Bible, an edition limited in numbers to 500 copies only, and now very difficult to find. A lovely copy of an important and always useful title! Morgan, bishop of St Asaph and biblical translator has been called ‘the single most important figure in the history of the Reformation in Wales’ (Williams, Wales and the Reformation, 342), because it was he who brought to completion the translation of the Bible into Welsh. The Book of Common Prayer, including the psalter, and the New Testament had been translated in 1567, but the task was left unfinished. See ODNB.
