        Andrew Wyeth: The Helga Pictures (Inscribed by Helga)

      Harry N. Abrams, Inc, New York, NY 1987 - When the series of over 240 paintings and drawings of Helga Testorf by the American master, Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009) came to the light the art world sprang back in surprise. It was also believed that Wyeth's closest confidant, his wife, Betsy James Wyeth, was unaware of the artist-model relationship and the work he produced between 1971 and 1985. The works were considered controversial and toured to six venues between 1987 and 1989 to great popular acclaim, this being the catalog for that traveling exhibition. Helga Testorf, a native of Germany, first worked for Wyeth's friends, the Kuerners, as a caregive and likely first met Andrew in that environment as he painted the Kuerners and their farm on a regular basis. In later years Helga also worked as a caregiver for Andrew as he aged and traveled with the family from their home in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, to midcoast Maine where the family has summered for generations. It was in Camden, Maine, that Helga Testorf inscribed this copy to the owner of ABCD Books and her store manager on July 9, 1999. We purchased the entire store inventory in 2009 and recently discovered the volume in a box of art books. We have never seen a copy signed by Helga, even rarer than those signed by Andrew or Betsy Wyeth. 208 pp. 4to. Minor scuffing to dust jacket from shelf wear, now in mylar cover.Red Cloth boards with gold embossed titling to cover board and spine. Clean and crisp within with small stain at head of text block near the foredge. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        An original watercolor painting from "Christmas 1993 or Santa's Last Ride."

      London: , 1987 - Santa Being Hijacked LE CAIN, Errol, illustrator. BRICUSSE, Leslie. An original watercolor painting from "Christmas 1993 or Santa's Last Ride." (Faber, 1987). [Santa being hijacked]. Image size: 16 3/8 x 11 1/2 inches. [Page 22]. "It was as though, in some strange way,/I saw in one extraordinary day/A miniature kaleidoscope/Of human lunacy and hope -/A well-matched pair, like man and wife,/Who stick together all through life./"In Africa, a dreadful drought/Cut all our drinking water out./In Mexico, it was so hot/Three reindeer fainted on the spot./In Russia, were stiff with ice./In Cuba, we were hijacked twice." Matted, framed and glazed.In 1986 Leslie Bricusse showed David Brass a poem that he had written entitled Christmas 1993 or Santa's Last Ride. It described how difficult Santa's job of delivering gifts around the world had become in these modern times. David, who had known Leslie for many years, had the idea to create a book from the poem and introduced Errol Le Cain to Leslie Bricusse. The book was published in 1987 - unfortunately Errol Le Cain died just before the publication date. It was his last work.Errol John Le Cain (5 March 1941 - 3 January 1989) was a British animator and children's book illustrator. He won the 1984 Kate Greenaway Medal for Hiawatha's Childhood (Faber & Faber), recognizing the year's best children's book illustration by a British subject.Descended from a French-Canadian great-grandfather, Le Cain was born in Singapore but evacuated to Agra, India with his mother and other relations the following year to escape the Japanese invasion. His father was captured and interned in Changi Prison. Returning to Singapore after the war, he attended St.Patrick's Catholic school. With no formal art education, his talent was nevertheless evident from an early age, Le Cain was fascinated by cinema and made his first animated film, The Enchanted Mouse, with a friend's 8-mm camera at age 11. His next work, The Little Goatherd, was created with a 16-mm camera at age 15. This came to the attention of agents for British film distributor Pearl & Dean, who offered to pay his passage to London that year (1956) to pursue a career in animation for film and television.In 1965, Le Cain joined Richard Williams's animation studio and worked on a wide range of animation projects, including film titles for A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Casino Royale, and The Charge of the Light Brigade. His most important work with Richard Williams was for the unfinished (1964 to 1992) animated film The Thief and the Cobbler.Le Cain turned freelance in 1969, working on sets for BBC television productions, continuing with animation projects, and beginning his career as a children's book illustrator.Le Cain's first children's illustrations were published by Faber and Faber in a story he'd originally storyboarded for film, King Arthur's Sword (1968), which began a long association with Faber that continued to his death. His first book "made me aware of the scope and possibilities of children's book illustration, and now I am convinced this is the medium for me". Le Cain wrote 3 and illustrated 48 children's books during his lifetime, recognized for their richly decorative watercolours and masterful command of design and colour. His self-authored works were King Arthur's Sword (1968), The Cabbage Princess (1969) and The White Cat (1973). He was commended for the 1969, 1975, and 1978 Greenaway awards before winning the 1984 Medal and was commended again for 1987. The four commended books were The Cabbage Princess; Thorn Rose, or the Sleeping Beauty based on the version related by the Brothers Grimm; The Twelve Dancing Princesses, retold from the Brothers Grimm; and The Enchanter's Daughter by Antonia Barber.Leslie Bricusse (born 29 January 1931) is an English composer, lyricist, and playwright, most prominently working in musicals and also film theme songs. Bricusse was educated at University College School in London and Gonville

        THE MOUNTAINS OF WALES: AN ANTHOLOGY IN VERSE & PROSE

      Newtown: Gwasg Gregynog, 1987. No. VI of XX copies bound by James Brockman (and 255 ordinary copies). Attractively printed on smooth, heavy paper by the modern successor to the original Gregynog Press and beautifully bound by a modern master, this is a collection of tributes to the beauty of the mountains of Wales by poets, travellers, naturalists, and mountaineers. Written in English and Welsh, it begins with verses from the 11th century and continues through the years, ending with a poem written in 1980. In between there are descriptions by such luminaries as Daniel Defoe, who compares the mountains of Wales favorably to the French Alps; Matthew Arnold; and John Ruskin, who says of his first visit to the mountains, "I had as much pleasure in that single day as some men have in all their lives." The watercolors of Anglican cleric and amateur painter John Parker (1798-1860), who produced hundred of paintings of this landscape, add a visual perspective to the literary tributes. For the covers of this special binding, James Brockman (b. 1946) uses the soft colors of the Parker illustrations to create his abstract designs, while still giving an impression of mountains. A past president of Designer Bookbinders and the Society of Bookbinders, Brockman apprenticed as a finisher at Blackwell's, studied with Ivor Robinson, and served as assistant to Sydney Cockerell at Cambridge from 1968-73. Three years later, he opened his own bindery in Oxford, which continues to produce notable work.. 303 x 191 mm.

Gerald Lange of the Bieler Press and Norman Fritzberg of the Hansestadt Letterfoundry were responsible for the typographic design and composition. The portfolios were constructed by the Campbell-Logan Bindery. "Mythological in conception and Nigerian in origin...the linocut illumination that accompanies the text exhibits such regimented verve that it almost seems as if a scourge has been placed upon each page. The jags, curves, and swirls of the elemental, naturalistic borders take on pantheistic qualities as they move organically into the inner sanctum ... harbors dangerous, disorderly creatures, alongside humans with their primitive and fantastic accoutrements. Gesture, posture, and facial expressions of beasts, trees, and humans...exhibit a stunning force of feeling and an atavistic quality that illuminates meaning and emotion..."

Bricusse was educated at University College School in London and Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge. While at Cambridge University, he was Secretary of Footlights between 1952 and 1953 and Footlights President during the following year. In the 1960s and 1970s, Bricusse enjoyed a fruitful partnership with Anthony Newley. They wrote the musical Stop the World - I Want to Get Off (1961) which was successful in London and on Broadway, and was made into a film version in 1966. Also in collaboration with Newley, Bricusse wrote The Roar of the Greasepaint-the Smell of the Crowd (1965) and Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971), based on the children's book by Roald Dahl, and for which they received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song Score. Working solely as a lyricist, he collaborated with composer Cyril Ornadel on Pickwick (1963), based on Charles Dickens' The Pickwick Papers, a successful vehicle for Harry Secombe. Later collaborators included Henry Mancini (Victor Victoria in 1982) and John Williams (Hook in 1991). As composer and lyricist he scored the successful film Doctor Dolittle (1967), for which he received an Academy Award for Best Original Song ("Talk to the Animals"), and the less-successful Goodbye, Mr. Chips (1969). He currently lives in the United States, and is married to actress Yvonne Romain.

        An original pen, ink and monotone drawing from "Christmas 1993 or Santa's Last Ride."

      London: , 1987. Santa's Job Back Then Was FunLE CAIN, Errol, illustrator. BRICUSSE, Leslie. An original pen, ink and monotone drawing from "Christmas 1993 or Santa's Last Ride." Image size: 4 1/2 x 11 3/4 inches. [title-page vignette and page 5]. "The world has changed, there is no doubt,/Since Santa's reindeer first set out,/In crystal skies and sparkling snow,/So many thousand moons ago./And Santa's job back then was fun./The year, let's not forget, was One". Matted, framed and glazed.In 1986 Leslie Bricusse showed David Brass a poem that he had written entitled Christmas 1993 or Santa's Last Ride. It described how difficult Santa's job of delivering gifts around the world had become in these modern times. David, who had known Leslie for many years, had the idea to create a book from the poem and introduced Errol Le Cain to Leslie Bricusse. The book was published in 1987 - unfortunately Errol Le Cain died just before the publication date. It was his last work.Errol John Le Cain (5 March 1941 - 3 January 1989) was a British animator and children's book illustrator. He won the 1984 Kate Greenaway Medal for Hiawatha's Childhood (Faber & Faber), recognizing the year's best children's book illustration by a British subject.Descended from a French-Canadian great-grandfather, Le Cain was born in Singapore but evacuated to Agra, India with his mother and other relations the following year to escape the Japanese invasion. His father was captured and interned in Changi Prison. Returning to Singapore after the war, he attended St.Patrick's Catholic school. With no formal art education, his talent was nevertheless evident from an early age, Le Cain was fascinated by cinema and made his first animated film, The Enchanted Mouse, with a friend's 8-mm camera at age 11. His next work, The Little Goatherd, was created with a 16-mm camera at age 15. This came to the attention of agents for British film distributor Pearl & Dean, who offered to pay his passage to London that year (1956) to pursue a career in animation for film and television.In 1965, Le Cain joined Richard Williams's animation studio and worked on a wide range of animation projects, including film titles for A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Casino Royale, and The Charge of the Light Brigade. His most important work with Richard Williams was for the unfinished (1964 to 1992) animated film The Thief and the Cobbler.Le Cain turned freelance in 1969, working on sets for BBC television productions, continuing with animation projects, and beginning his career as a children's book illustrator.Le Cain's first children's illustrations were published by Faber and Faber in a story he'd originally storyboarded for film, King Arthur's Sword (1968), which began a long association with Faber that continued to his death. His first book "made me aware of the scope and possibilities of children's book illustration, and now I am convinced this is the medium for me". Le Cain wrote 3 and illustrated 48 children's books during his lifetime, recognized for their richly decorative watercolours and masterful command of design and colour. His self-authored works were King Arthur's Sword (1968), The Cabbage Princess (1969) and The White Cat (1973). He was commended for the 1969, 1975, and 1978 Greenaway awards before winning the 1984 Medal and was commended again for 1987. The four commended books were The Cabbage Princess; Thorn Rose, or the Sleeping Beauty based on the version related by the Brothers Grimm; The Twelve Dancing Princesses, retold from the Brothers Grimm; and The Enchanter's Daughter by Antonia Barber.Leslie Bricusse (born 29 January 1931) is an English composer, lyricist, and playwright, most prominently working in musicals and also film theme songs. Bricusse was educated at University College School in London and Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge. While at Cambridge University, he was Secretary of Footlights between 1952 and 1953 and Footlights President during the following year. In the 1960s and 1970s, Bricusse enjoyed a fruitful partnership with Anthony Newley. They wrote the musical Stop the World - I Want to Get Off (1961) which was successful in London and on Broadway, and was made into a film version in 1966. Also in collaboration with Newley, Bricusse wrote The Roar of the Greasepaint-the Smell of the Crowd (1965) and Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971), based on the children's book by Roald Dahl, and for which they received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song Score. Working solely as a lyricist, he collaborated with composer Cyril Ornadel on Pickwick (1963), based on Charles Dickens' The Pickwick Papers, a successful vehicle for Harry Secombe. Later collaborators included Henry Mancini (Victor Victoria in 1982) and John Williams (Hook in 1991). As composer and lyricist he scored the successful film Doctor Dolittle (1967), for which he received an Academy Award for Best Original Song ("Talk to the Animals"), and the less-successful Goodbye, Mr. Chips (1969). He currently lives in the United States, and is married to actress Yvonne Romain.
