        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 Gunnar Kaldewey. With numerous monochromatic and two-tone illustrations. Written, illustrated, designed, and printed by 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 the 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.

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 &lsquo;the single most important figure in the history of the Reformation in Wales&rsquo; (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

        The Mountains of Wales An Anthology in Verse & Prose

      Newtown, Powys: Gwasg Gregynog, 1987 Bound by James Brockman and Desmond Shaw in grey Fabriano Roma hand made paper boards, gold rule, stained transparent vellum spine, device in gold on upper cover, top edge gilt, titled in gold on the spine. 191 pp, 8 pl, 297*180 mm. Spine rubbed very slightly, slip case soiled. A superb production with some lovely plates. Drawn on ten centuries of Welsh, Latin and English literature, this anthology ranges from the oldest traditions about Arthur to the autobiography of a hill farmers wife published in 1979. From Giraldus Cambrensis&#39; reaction to Snowdonia in 1188 to that of the American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. In between come the heroics of the Princes, the pioneer naturalists, Pennant and the early travellers, the great English romantic poets, the first climbers, artists like Augustus John and John Piper, writers like Edward Thomas and Robert Graves, TH Parry-Williams and RS Thomas. Fabulous and uncommon! (See Esslemont/Hughes Gwasg Gregynog for further information)

        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.
