        Senza titolo, 1988

      1988. Acrilico su carta. Cm 50x70. . . . . . . Rodolfo Aricò (Milano 1930 - 2002) ha studiato al liceo artistico di Brera e ha frequentato dal 1950 al 1955 la facoltà di architettura al Politecnico. Nel 1959 tiene la sua prima mostra personale al Salone Annunciata di Milano. Nel 1964. invitato alla Biennale di Venezia. espone un'opera formata da tre grandi tele in cui le forme quadrate sono disposte diagonalmente. E' un anticipo del primo "oggetto" del 1966. quando la sua pittura comincerà ad acquistare consistenza. organizzandosi su strutture sagomate.Solo nel 1968 però. con la sala personale alla XXXIV Biennale di Venezia. il carattere strutturale dei suoi quadri-oggetti si manifesterà nella sua piena tridimensionalità. I cataloghi delle sue mostre sono stati curati da Maurizio Fagiolo Dell'Arco. Giulio Carlo Argan. Roberto Sanesi. Guido Ballo. Gillo Dorfles. Francesco Bartoli. Gianni Contessi. Giovanni Maria Accame nella monografia dedicata all'Artista (Electa. 1990) si ferma a guardare "le carte leggere e appassionate. frutto di un lavoro continuo. assiduo e amato" degli anni Ottanta – Novanta. Sono le opere su carta. non semplici miniature delle grandi sagome. ma luoghi pittorici veri e propri dove la densa presenza del colore prevale sulla forma. accogliendo idee e riflessioni. "Le carte sono appunto un diario... qui possiamo scoprire la ricchezza che ci riserva l'opera minore. che senza clamori ci stupisce per la sua immediatezza. e come è detto in un frammento di Eraclito. non dice né cela. ma accenna".

        Zweiwochenschrift. Hrsg. von Hans Leybold (Nr. 5 hrsg. von Franz Jung). 1. Jahrg., Hefte 1-5. [Alles Erschienene.]

      Vollständige Folge einer der wichtigsten und seltensten frühexpressionistischen Zeitschriften mit prädadaistischem Impetus. - Nach dem Vorbild der ?Aktion? Pfemferts gedruckt, war die ?Revolution? für kurze Zeit das überregional bekannte Periodikum der Schwabinger Bohème, welche jedoch zunehmend von München nach Berlin zog der Kreis des Cafés Stefanie? fand sich nun im ?Café des Westens? am Kurfürstendamm wieder. Damit markiert die ?Revolution? gewissermaßen den bedeutsamen Endpunkt der Schwabinger Ära (vgl. Franz Jung. Der Weg nach Unten. Hamburg 1988, S. 77 ff.). Von den hierin erschienenen Publikationen gingen wesentliche Impulse für den Expressionismus aus gleichzeitig fanden sich in der ?Revolution? bereits einige Protagonisten des späteren Dadaismus zusammen, namentlich Hugo Ball, Emmy Hennings, Richard Huelsenbeck und Franz Jung. Eröffnet wurde die Reihe mit einer Reflexion über das Wort ?Revolution? von Erich Mühsam. - Die erste Nummer wurde aufgrund des von Hugo Ball verfassten Gedichtes ?Der Gehenkte? konfisziert. - Heft Nummer 5 erschien als Sondernummer für den Anarchisten und Psychoanalytiker Otto Groß, der auf Veranlassung seines Vaters in die Landesirrenanstalt Troppau eingeliefert worden war. Franz Jung erinnerte sich später an die Herausgabe der Sondernummer: ?Ich selbst hatte mir von Johannes R. Becher die Zeitschrift ?Revolution? ausgeborgt, die dieser in München zusammen mit Bachmair herausgab. Ich füllte die Zeitschrift mit Zuschriften und Beiträgen von Dichtern und Schriftstellern aus aller Welt für das Recht des individuellen Erlebens gegen den gefährlichen Starrsinn väterlicher Autorität. Dem Professor wurde die Fähigkeit abgesprochen zu lehren, ein Amt zu bekleiden - eine internationale Schande der Rechtswissenschaft. Zu Studentendemonstrationnen an den österreichischen Universitäten wurde aufgerufen. Nicht genug damit: ich hatte aus dem Grazer Adreßbuch Hunderte von Adressen herausgeschrieben, die Caféhäuser in Graz und Wien, die Universitäten, die Büchereien, die Buchhandlungen... ich habe über 1000 Exemplare der ?Revolution? auf diese Weise versandt [...] Als auch die Kampagne in der österreichischen Öffentlichkeit aufgegriffen wurde [...] gab der Alte klein bei.? (Ebenda, S. 84.) - Hugo Ball schrieb 1915 in seiner ?Totenrede? für Hans Leybold, der sich als Soldat im Ersten Weltkrieg das Leben nahm, über die Herausgabe der fünf Hefte: ?Als die Zeitschrift gegründet war, verlangten die Abonnenten ein Programm. Leybold sprach: ?Wohlan denn, Ihr , wennschon immerhin: Hier habet ihr ein Programm. Und schrieb: ,Kampf gegen Seiendes, für Keimendes. Gegen Kunst - portiere, Kulturportiere, Avenariusse, Scharrelmänner, Obskuranten, Schwärzlinge, Hertlinge, Hohlwege, Panteutschisten, Stagnaten, Kastraten. Gegen literaturbehaftete Oberlehrer, kunstsinnige Kritiker, allgemeine Rundschauer. In summa: Gegen Zuständliches. Und fügte hinzu:Nichtschriftsteller heraus! Keine Literaten sollen gezüchtet werden. Da hatte man die Revolution! Da war sie. 20 Jahre alt war der Kerl. Sehr hurtig. Und paffte einfach drauf los.? (Die weissen Blätter. Jahrg. 2, Heft 4. S. 525.) - Die fünf Nummern enthalten u.a. Beiträge von Hugo Ball, Johannes R. Becher, Ernst Blass, Franz Blei, Max Brod, Leonhard Frank, Iwan Goll, Walter Hasenclever, Emmy Hennings, Kurt Hiller, Jakob van Hoddis, Richard Huelsenbeck, Franz Jung, Klabund, Else Lasker-Schüler, Alfred Lichtenstein, Erich Mühsam, Robert Musil, Karl Otten, Ludwig Rubiner, René Schickele. - Nummer 1 erschien in einer Auflage von 3000 Exemplaren, Nummern 2-5 in 5000 Exemplaren. - Druck in Rot und Schwarz auf holzhaltigem Zeitungspapier.- Hefte partiell mit sehr kleinen Flecken u.

        Communion. A True Story [And:] Transformation. The Breakthrough

      New York: Beech Tree Books. William Morrow, 1988. First edition, advance copy with inserted review slip. 2 vols. 8vo. Cloth backed boards, pictorial dust jackets. Each volume signed by Disch and bearing his annotations in text and on the back endpapers. Near fine in near fine dust jackets. First edition, advance copy with inserted review slip. 2 vols. 8vo. Disch on Strieber's 'Communion'. Horror novelist Whitley Strieber (The Hunger, The Wolfen, etc.) published the controversial best seller Communion in early 1987, as a true account of his encounters with intelligent humanoids in December 1985. Science fiction author Thomas M. Disch published a profoundly skeptical review of the book in the 14 March 1987 issue of The Nation, noting Strieber's systematic equivocation about the reality of the "enigmatic visitors" while also examining the author's style and the relation of the book to his other writings. "Novelists, especially horror novelists, know all kinds of ways to make the implausible seem plausible. It's what they're paid for." Disch's essay on Communion and its sequel, Transformation, and related UFO titles, forms a central chapter of his book The Dreams Our Stuff Is Made of (1998). His annotations - textual points, "Howlers", and other observations - record his critical thinking in action. "Because of his intellectual audacity, the chillingly distanced mannerism of his narrative art, the austerity of the pleasures he affords, and the fine cruelty of his wit, [Disch] has been perhaps the most respected, least trusted, most envied and least read of all modern first-rank sf writers" (Encyclopedia of Science Fiction). With an inserted autograph postcard from John Crowley to Disch remarking upon the advance paid to Strieber; and various newspaper reviews and articles, including letters of Strieber and Disch in the 28 March issue of The Nation, Gregory Benford's skeptical essay from the New York Times Book Review; and accompanied by Disch's copy of Cutting Edge (Doubleday, 1986), an anthology of horror stories edited by Dennis Etchison, annotated at Strieber's short story "Pain", described in the story afterword as "the last thing he wrote while still unconscious of the events recounted in Communion". An interesting glimpse into Disch's critical process, and a brilliant dissection of a popular controversy.

        Fernando Pessoa, A Tribute; 10 Poems Translated on the Occasion of the 100th Anniversary of His Birth by George Monteiro

      Ziggurat Press, Providence, R.I. 1988 - Limited edition, number IV of four Artist's Proof copies (total edition 24), folio size, [24] pp., signed by George Monteiro and Walter Feldman. Fernando Pessoa (1888-1935) is considered one of the greatest poets of Portugal. "Blessed (and burdened) with a family name that means both person and persona, the poet took to addressing letters to himself that he attributed to an imaginary companion he recognized as 'Le Chevalier de Pas.' He wrote his early poems in English, under his first alter ego or heteronym, Alexander Search; his other major heteronyms were Alvaro de Campos, Alberto Caeiro, and Ricardo Reis. 'Fernando Pessoa's true life was the interior life of the poet and thinker. What happened to him in the streets, in the Lisbon cafes, in the offices of the firms he served as correspondent, as polemicist - political and artistic - in the journals, or as the would-be lover of a young typist called Ophelia (so aptly named, for this writer with a Hamlet complex) - all this pales before the reality of his interior life, a far and distant land, the bulletins from which are his essays, journals, stories and, above all, poems. In fact, so richly complex was that life that no single identity - and certainly not the self he called Fernando Pessoa ele mesmo - could glean his teeming brain. It took the whole complement of his heteronyms, especially Caeiro, Reis and Campos, to enact that drama within persons (drama em gente) that he called his life's work." (N.B., from the foreword by George Monteiro.) This edition includes four poems by Fernando Pessoa himself, and two each respectively by his three major heteronyms, each translation accompanied by the Portuguese text handwritten by four different people, referring of course, to those four major "persons" who authored Pessoa's poetry. The accordion binding was used to retain the four deckled edges of the Japanese paper, another layer of form to reflect the content. ***DESCRIPTION: Original full patterned Japanese fabric covered boards of red with patterns of white dots, bound accordion style, with a black title-label affixed to the upper board, title-page printed in black and red, each page-spread illustrated with colour woodcuts, handwritten text was transferred to silk and hand screened; type was set by Mollohan Typesetting, Japanese Okawara paper, folio size (13 1/8" by 9 1/4"), [24] pp., limited edition, number IV of four Artist's Proof copies, of a total edition of 24, signed by the translator at the foreword and by the artist/publisher at the colophon. Housed in a slipcase covered with black cloth with a repeating pattern of flowers in white, black ribbon pull. ***CONDITION: Fine; crisp, clean, as new and free of prior owner markings; in a like slipcase. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please inquire 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.

(Ebenda, S. 84.) - Hugo Ball schrieb 1915 in seiner ?Totenrede? für Hans Leybold, der sich als Soldat im Ersten Weltkrieg das Leben nahm, über die Herausgabe der fünf Hefte: ?Als die Zeitschrift gegründet war, verlangten die Abonnenten ein Programm. Leybold sprach: ?Wohlan denn, Ihr , wennschon immerhin: Hier habet ihr ein Programm. Und schrieb: ,Kampf gegen Seiendes, für Keimendes. Gegen Kunst - portiere, Kulturportiere, Avenariusse, Scharrelmänner, Obskuranten, Schwärzlinge, Hertlinge, Hohlwege, Panteutschisten, Stagnaten, Kastraten. Gegen literaturbehaftete Oberlehrer, kunstsinnige Kritiker, allgemeine Rundschauer. In summa: Gegen Zuständliches. Und fügte hinzu:Nichtschriftsteller heraus! Keine Literaten sollen gezüchtet werden. Da hatte man die Revolution! Da war sie. 20 Jahre alt war der Kerl. Sehr hurtig. Und paffte einfach drauf los.? (Die weissen Blätter. Jahrg. 2, Heft 4. S. 525.) - Die fünf Nummern enthalten u.a. Beiträge von Hugo Ball, Johannes R. Becher, Ernst Blass, Franz Blei, Max Brod, Leonhard Frank, Iwan Goll, Walter Hasenclever, Emmy Hennings, Kurt Hiller, Jakob van Hoddis, Richard Huelsenbeck, Franz Jung, Klabund, Else Lasker-Schüler, Alfred Lichtenstein, Erich Mühsam, Robert Musil, Karl Otten, Ludwig Rubiner, René Schickele. - Nummer 1 erschien in einer Auflage von 3000 Exemplaren, Nummern 2-5 in 5000 Exemplaren. - Druck in Rot und Schwarz auf holzhaltigem Zeitungspapier.- Hefte partiell mit sehr kleinen Flecken u.

        Neopostmodernism: Gabberjabb Number 6

      (Mt. Horeb, WI): Perishable Press. (1988). Hamady's Interminable Gabberjabb series, begun in 1973 and comprising eight books by its end in 2005, is considered to have "changed the face of contemporary book arts in the United States" (Univ. of Arizona Poetry Center). This, the sixth book in the series, was published seven years after the fifth, and the limitation was reduced for this book from 200 to 125 copies. An eclectic and elaborate production: attempting to "read" the book sequentially involves carefully discovering how each page or gathering "works" and discovering the surprises the book has in store. This is copy number 87, date-stamped December 7, 1988. Signed by Hamady, his assistant Kent Kasuboske, and the binder Marta Gomez. Additionally annotated by Hamady on December 8: "Fore edged and embellished yesterday wrappered today by WH (sunny but cold 20 degrees)(F)." Fine. First Edition. Softcover. Fine.

        Toward a New Philosophy of Biology: Observations of an Evolutionist

      Cambridge, MA: Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, 1988. First Edition. Hardcover Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. 563 pages. A collection of essays suggesting new philosophical underpinnings for the science of biology. The essays are revised from earlier publications and some appear here for the first time. First edition (first printing). Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with light surface scuffing. This is a remarkable association copy between two of the great Darwinian evolutionists of the twentieth century. The book is inscribed, 'To Steve Gould, in friendship and admiration, Ernst.' Stephen Jay Gould was a college of Mayr's at Harvard and credits Mayr for inspiring his important first book, Phylogeny and Ontology: 'Ernst Mayr, in a passing comment, suggested I write this book'--p. vii. Mayr, in this book, cites Gould's work on 11 pages, as much as most any scientist. Gould called Mayr, 'the dean of modern Darwinians' (Leonardo's Mountain of Clams, p. 329). Books signed by Mayr are uncommon. Association copies of this caliber are rare.
