        Andrew Wyeth: The Helga Pictures

      Harry N. Abrams, Inc., Publishers, New York 1987 - First edition. Illustrated. 4to. INSCRIBED to Lincoln Kirstein in the artist's hand, "For Lincoln / with love / Andy & Betsy."An outstanding association copy. Kirstein, who was on the board of MoMA, met Andrew Wyeth after the museum acquired CHRISTINA'S WORLD in 1948. Wyeth was still largely unknown at that time, and he quickly came to rely on Kirstein for support and honest criticism of his work. "Kirstein appointed himself Wyeth's friend, admirer, mentor, and stern critic - in essence a supersuccessor to NC. [.] Wyeth thinks that in the 1950s he needed Kirstein to push him toward more form in his work, more solidity" (Meryman, Andrew Wyeth: A Secret Life (1998) p 239, 243). Kirstein, who disdained most abstract art, was essential in providing Wyeth the confidence he needed to continue work in the face of hostile critics who derided his art as sentimental and unsophisticated. Wyeth was fond of quoting Kirstein's dismissive opinion of the critics, "Why do you want approval from those horses' asses?" (ibid, p. 390).Kirstein was a father-figure to two generations of Wyeth artists, and as Andrew's son Jamie developed his own artistic gifts, Kirstein began to transfer his attention to the younger Wyeth. "After posing for nineteen-year-old Jamie, Kirstein more or less shifted his allegiance from Andrew and became Jamie's friend and mentor. Kirstein told Betsy, 'You gave me the only son I ever had'" (ibid, p. 275). Here, Betsy signs her own name at the end of the inscription. Orange cloth in dust jacket.

Rather than feeling added-on or unfinished, this gonzo layout is entirely appropriate to the contents of the book". The triumph of this book is that it does manage to reflect the mad experience of traveling in Southeast Asia, while still reflecting on what it all means" (Roth, 258). A fine inscribed copy.

        USE OF UTRECHT. TEXT FROM THE OPENING OF VESPERS

      Northern Netherlands [Utrecht], ca. 1430s. n. This is a beautifully scripted and illuminated leaf, in fine, bright condition with the text in the Dutch translation of Gerardus Magnus or (in Dutch) Geert Groote (or other variants, including Gerard, Gerrit, or Gerhard Groet, 1340-84). At a time when Books of Hours were almost exclusively in Latin (with occasional calendars, rubrics, or personal prayers in the vernacular), Groote sought to make the communication between the individual and the divine more direct by translating the Office of the Virgin into Dutch in or about 1385. A priest whose life was characterized by luxury and irresponsibility until he experienced a profound spiritual awakening, Groote had established a scriptorium in Deventer in 1371 that would allow impoverished scholars to earn a living copying texts. This organization eventually grew into the Brethren of the Common Life, a teaching order that had a profound influence on European education, establishing the first graded schooling and emphasizing humanistic studies and Latin. Their students included Erasmus, and they had a lasting effect on the development of German humanism. It would appear that our leaf comes from a manuscript sold as lot #53 at Sotheby's on 1 December 1987 (for the equivalent of $10,560).. 154 x 111 mm. (6 1/8 x 4 3/8"). Single column, 19 lines in a pleasing gothic book hand. Rubrics in red, capitals struck with red, five one-line initials in red or blue, recto with one two-line initial in burnished gold embellished with red penwork and with delicate penwork extensions running the length of the page; verso WITH A FIVE-LINE BURNISHED GOLD INITIAL on a blue and pink ground with white tracery, a blue, pink, and burnished gold bar border extending from the initial, forming A THREE-QUARTER BORDER with hairline stem extensions bearing gilt bezants and blue and pink acorns, right-hand border featuring three small flowers with burnished gold centers. Trimmed a bit close at head (no loss), otherwise A FINE LEAF--quite clean, smooth, and bright, with sparkling gold. This is a beautifully scripted and illuminated leaf, in fine, bright condition with the text in the Dutch translation of Gerardus Magnus or (in Dutch) Geert Groote (or other variants, including Gerard, Gerrit, or Gerhard Groet, 1340-84).

        Ideal Book or The Book Beautiful (Cadenza Reprints on Typography No. 4) [CUSTOM BINDING - David Sellars]

      Cadenza Press, London 1987 - Custom binding by David Sellars, Designer Bookbinder (1949-2015), based out of Great Britain. David was awarded a Fellowship of Designer Bookbinders in the mid seventies and served as President of the society for four years; his bindings are represented in most major libraries in the world and many private collections. This binding is almost in counterpoint to the book itself; for Cobden-Sanderson's essay on "The Book Beautiful" David designed a binding reminiscent of roughly-hewn boards, with small jewel-toned dots in the middle of both boards and on the book's edges, contained within a case of even rougher hew. ***DESCRIPTION: Leather spine with the author's initials lettered in gold in blindstamped circles; textured handmade paper over wooden boards, leather collage stripe on both covers; board and paper edges stained black with impressed colored circles; painted endpapers; custom tray and slipcase with matching textured handmade paper, title and colophon pages in red and black; 16 mo size (approximately 6.25" tall), unpaginated with 10 leaves, paper Chilham hand-made from the Hayle Mill, Bembo type; limited edition of "about 100 copies", unnumbered; designer binding by David Sellars, signed and dated 1988, in pencil on a rear flyleaf. ***CONDITION: Fine; the binding perfect, without blemish; the interior pages clean, bright, free of prior owner markings - as new. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the Abe standard does not always cover costs; please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell. Please contact us with any questions you may have, we are here to help. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Andy Book

      1987 - WEBER, Bruce. The Andy Book. (Tokyo: Shotaro Okada, 1987). Quarto, original perfect-bound stiff photographic wrappers. Booklet with Japanese translation laid in. $2800.First edition of Weber's photo-essay on boxer-model Andy Minsker, inscribed twice by Minsker to part-time manager Michael Morton, once on the front cover, "For Mike "˜Motormouth' Morton, who will lead me to the World Jr. Lightweight Title! Thanks, Andy M." and again on an inside blank leaf, "To Mike,". I want to reassure you that you're not wasting your time or $. You, Ed [Milberger, Andy's trainer] and I will be a trio that Portland Oregon will never forget".Thanks again, Andy Minsker, "˜Future' Junior Lightweight World "˜Champeen.""In 1985, Andy Minsker was at the top of his game. Golden Gloves champion. Amateur Boxing Federation champion. He had flattened both the British Commonwealth and Yugoslav champs with first-round knockouts. The featherweight from Milwaukee had just turned pro. Somewhere along the line, he had also been an underwear model for Calvin Klein and cavorted with supermodels the likes of Christie Brinkley" (Chris Lydgate). Bruce Weber, "arguably the most influential contemporary fashion and celebrity photographer, works in a style combining neoclassic mannerism (Beaton, Horst, Hoyningen-Huene) and naturalistic reportage" (Roth, 254). In keeping with his style, Weber occasionally sought out athletes to model clothing, and had met Minsker during a photo-shoot of Olympic hopefuls at the 1983 Colorado Sports Festival. Because of a misunderstanding, Weber was prevented from photographing the Olympic boxing team at that time. Several years later, Minsker approached Weber, disclosing that he had been told by Olympic officials that "you'd give me a weird haircut and make me wear skimpy see-through clothes". That's all I needed to hear. I'm on my way." This engaging 1987 photobook is the result of the young boxer's pluck. Later the same year, Weber would make a film with Minsker, entitled Broken Noses. The copy here is inscribed twice by Minsker to fast-talking Portland manager Mike "Motormouth" Morton, who was given his nickname by famous promoter Don King. Known as "the busiest professional boxing manager in the Pacific Northwest" (Oregonian), Morton managed Minsker after his falling out with Billy Baxter. When Minsker retired in 1991, he had stepped into the ring 344 times"" against the best in the world"" but never did capture the Junior Lightweight crown. This is author Katherine Dunn's copy, with a manila folder of her articles on Minsker, signed by her.A fine inscribed copy, with boxing and literary provenance.
