Die bedeutendsten Buchmaler des ausgehenden 14. Jahrhunderts haben im Auftrag des Herzogs von Berry ein Kunstwerk geschaffen, das wegen der Reichhaltigkeit und Feinheit der Malerei von Wissenschaftlern und Kunstexperten als eines der großartigsten Zeugnisse spätmittelalterlicher Kunst bewertet wird. Die Schrift- und Miniaturseiten dieses prächtigen Stundenbuches sind durchweg mit filigranen Ranken, Vögeln und Schmetterlingen ausgeschmückt. Kaum ein anderes Werk dieser Gattung weist eine solche Fülle an Bilderschmuck auf. - Der Herzog von Berry - Mäzen und größter Kunstsammler seiner Zeit, geboren 1340, war der Herzog von Berry. Sohn, Bruder und Onkel von drei französischen Königen. Durch diese verwandtschaftlichen Beziehungen und auch als regierender Herzog über einen bedeutenden Teil der französischen Kernlande besaß er eine Stellung, die ihm einen Platz in nächster Nähe der großen Fürsten seiner Zeit einräumte. Die Welt des Herzogs von Berry war eine Welt voller Kriege, Aufruhr und Unruhen: Krieg mit England, das große Schisma der Christenheit und blutige innere Kämpfe in Frankreich. Auch der Herzog wurde immer wieder in die politischen Geschehnisse verwickelt, obwohl er selbst ganz andere Interessen hatte. Der Duc de Berry war schon in jungen Jahren ein Förderer begabter Künstler seiner Zeit. Er gab Anregungen und vergab Aufträge, stellte finanzielle Mittel zur Verfügung und war ein leidenschaftlicher Kunstsammler und der größte Bibliophile des Mittelalters. Der künstlerische Wert seiner Handschriftensammlung übertraf bei Weitem alles, was andere Fürstenhäuser zu jener Zeit ihr eigen nannten. Der Herzog verstarb am 15. Juni 1416 im Alter von 75 Jahren. - Generationenübergreifendes Meisterwerk - Um 1372 gab der Herzog von Berry die PetitesHeures in Auftrag. Schließlich sollten insgesamt fünf Buchmaler an ihrer Ausgestaltung beteiligt sein. Die Zusammenarbeit zwischen Künstlern war damals nichts Außergewöhnliches; aber diese fünf Buchmaler erreichten ein Ergebnis, wie man es kaum in einer Bilderhandschrift jener Zeit sieht. Zunächst wurde der große Jean Le Noir mit der Ausführung betraut, der seit 1340 die Buchmalerei in Frankreich bestimmte und, was für einen Künstler zu jener Zeit ungewöhnlich war, noch nach fast 40 Jahren künstlerische Höchstleistungen vollbrachte. Er schuf in der berühmten Maltradition des Jean Pucelle den Passionszyklus, das Einleitungsbild zu den Bußpsalmen und die Szenen aus dem Offizium Johannes des Täufers. Er hat aber auch viele der anderen Miniaturen entscheidend mitgeprägt. Denn obwohl sie von seinen Nachfolgern fertiggestellt wurden, lassen sie noch deutlich seine Kompositionsweise erkennen. Nach dem Tod des Jean Le Noir wurde die Arbeit an der Handschrift für einige Jahre unterbrochen. In einem zweiten Arbeitsabschnitt wurde der berühmte Jacquemart de Hesdin mit einigen Mitarbeitern, dem "Meister der Dreifaltigkeit" sowie dem sogenannten Pseudo-Jacquemart, beauftragt, das Werk zu vollenden, vermutlich zwischen 1385 und 1390. Um 1410, also lange nach der Fertigstellung der Handschrift, ließ der Herzog noch eine Miniatur durch einen der Brüder Limburg einfügen. Wegen dieser Unterbrechungen stellen die Petites Heures eines der wesentlichen Werke spätmittelalterlicher Buchmalerei am Wendepunkt zwischen der ausgehenden französischen Hofkunst des 14. Jahrhunderts und dem Beginn der Internationalen Gotik dar. - Bilder in vollendeter Schönheit und rekordverdächtiger Anzahl - Liebevoll bis ins kleinste Detail wurde jedes Blatt gestaltet. So entstand in diesem herrlichen Buch eine wahre Galerie von Bildern in einer Anzahl, die jedem Museum heute zur Ehre reichen würde. 119 Miniaturen finden sich in diesem außergewöhnlichen Werk. Die feinen Darstellungen dienten als kunstvolle visuelle Unterstützung, mit der die Buchmaler den Andachtstext zur Geltung brachten. Die Bilder bringen die großen Themen des christlichen Glaubens. Ihre Reihe beginnt mit den Miniaturen des Kalendariums und führt über das Marienleben und die Passion Christi zu den Szenen der vom Herzog besonders verehrten Heiligen. Reiche Ausstattung in Gold und Silber Die zahlreichen Darstellungen des Gönners selbst verleihen der Prachthandschrift einen weitgehend persönlichen Charakter. Es gibt viele Hinweise darauf, daß der Herzog dieses Stundenbuch auf seinen häufigen Reisen immer bei sich hatte. Der verschwenderische Buchschmuck setzt sich aus einer Vielzahl von Motiven zusammen: prächtigen Versinitialen auf fast jeder Seite, herrlichem Rankenwerk, unzähligen Vögeln und Schmetterlingen. Für die Ausschmückung der 119 Miniaturseiten wurde reichlich Gold und Silber verwendet denn nur das Beste war gut genug für die Ausschmückung des herzoglichen Stundenbuches. - Erwerben Sie hier eine wahre Rarität.

        Part of the Harbour of Port Jackson, and the Country between Sydney and the Blue Mountains, New South Wales

      Alecto Editions and the State Library of New South Wales, London 1988 - Originally engraved by Robert Havell and son, printed by Edward Egerton-Williams in colours and finished by hand, with printer's blindstamp. "By 1820, Sydney was a town of 12,000 inhabitants, about a third of whom were convicts. It had grown dramatically during the administration of Lachlan Macquarie who was appointed governor of New South Wales in 1810. Unlike previous governors, Macquarie was not content merely to oversee a penal colony. His vigorous building programme changed forever the appearance of Sydney, while his policy of accepting emancipated convicts as respected citizens demonstrated a social attitude strangely out of step with the times. Both these policies earned him criticism. In 1819, alarmed by Macquarie's extravagant public works, the British Government commissioned a lawyer and civil servant, J.T.Bigge, to investigate. The attacks by his critics were met head on by Macquarrie's supporters in New South Wales. Books, pamphlets and paintings luded the governor's undoubted achievements. Almost certainly Major Taylor's drawings were used in, if not commissioned for, this cause. The engraved view presents a flattering image of the Australian seat of government and, by extension, of Macquarie's term there.Taylor arranged the engraving and printing of the of the three sheet Panorama. upon his return to England in July 1822.Havell appears to have worked from [Taylor's]. large watercolours, but amended them with additional details. and decorative elements.It is most fortuitous that the copper plates.have survived. There is no other example of such a case for 19th century Australian engravings."

        U.S. Nuclear Weapons - The Secret History

      AeroFax, Arlington, TX 1988 - Arlington, TX: Aerofax, 1988. First Edition. Illustrated from photographs. 232 pp including index. 11x8, gilt-lettered navy blue boards; pictorial jacket. A strong Near Fine in like jacket; jacket with modest closed tear with associated crease at rear panel, light soiling; small smudge on title; near fine in like jacket. Scarce first edition, in handsome condition, by the self-made guru of U.S. Nuclear Weapons history, Chuck Hansen. Hansen, who died of brain cancer in 2003, also authored The Swords of Armageddon - published on CD ROM in 1995 - as a voluminous follow-up on the same subject, but this rare title remains the standard reference on the legendary researcher's main subject, that being the development of U.S. nuclear weaponry following the Manhattan Project of World War II. The part Hansen may have played in the making of world history itself, with his ceaseless research into a topic on which research was generally less than appreciated by the government for decades, may never be known. From one of many online sites on Hansen: "Using only public and properly declassified information, Chuck published the first publicly available description of the weapon in the U.S. nuclear arsenal. When the landmark legal case U.S. vs The Progressive led to the longest prior restraint on publication in U.S. history, in 1979, it was Chuck Hansen's letter to a U.S. Senator analyzing the government's allegations that led to the collapse of the government's case. This event marked the end to the policy of atomic information being "born secret" and opened public debate on the nature and implications of nuclear weapons. This legacy remains with us today, even in the increasingly secretive world of post 9-11 America", (and) "The story of the Arms Race [and by extension, the Cold War] cannot be understood without knowing what took place inside those empires. Knowing this secret history is critically important to understanding what happened in the world in those years, and why. Western democracy is founded on the principle that open exchange of information and public debate is essential for maintaining a healthy and successful society, and is moreover the means by which the individual exercises control of his or her own destiny. As Senator Daniel Moynihan, who fatefully passed away on the same day as Chuck Hansen, observed about the U.S. victory in the Cold War: 'It was a victory achieved by openness, not secrecy'. Without knowing the inner history of the Arms Race, public debate cannot profit from it." Starting by accumulating the scant legally available information on nuclear armament at the time, Hansen, in his decades-long task, ultimately penned this almost mythical work, itself now a piece of history. Full of photographs, charts, footnotes and other hard information, as well as Hansen's standard text and description, U.S. Nuclear Weapons - The Secret History is a perfect and fascinating blend, a rare example of a non-fiction reference page-turner. The level of detail in the author's mindset is difficult to convey; it has to be seen. A superior copy. Lg2 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        November Birches

      White, Kenneth. Walker, Anne. November Birches. Paris: Editions Biren, 1988. Octavo (6 1/2 x 5 1/2"). 21pp., 4 color etchings. Unbound, loose sheets in wrappers, in blue slip case as issued. No. 48 of 60 copies, signed by the author and illustrator. Fine copy. Not in OCLC or RLIN. Anne Walker is a native New Englander, who emigrated to France in 1955 after graduating from Smith College. She took up woodcuts in 1956 in Paris, and etching and aquatint in 1968. She began making gouache and pastel books in 1989, turning away from printmaking. She has had exhibitions in Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, and the United States. Walker explains her transition from the precision of printmaking to the more abstract techniques she uses in her gouache and pastel books as a change in her world view. Her initial attraction to printmaking "was a way of creating stability using solid materials that supposed a contained and precise technique that was reassuring in itself. Once released from this need because of being able to accept (more or less) that the world will always be a fragile place to live in, I feel freer and happier with what I am doing now." Many of Walker's books are closely associated with poetry. She has worked with contemporary poets, often asking them to hand-letter their poems into her books, and she has used poems from late poets such as Emily Dickinson, Wallace Stevens, Thoreau, and William Carlos Williams. If the poet is no longer living, or if a contemporary prefers not to write in the book themselves, she uses a simple calligraphy, so that the writing remains visually neutral.

        Heart Songs and Other Stories

      Scribner, NY 1988 - This copy has been SIGNED by E. Annie Proulx on the title page! A beautiful copy of the highly honored author's 1st book of fiction - a wonderful collection of stories. The nine stories in "heart Songs" introduced a unique, new voice in contemporary American fiction. The settings are small New England blue-collar towns; the characters are the dispossessed working class confronted by a young rural bougeoisie; and the themes are the traps people set out for one another, out of malice or naivete, premeditaqtion or misunderstaning. As Publisher's Weekly said at the time "An authoritative debut.Appropriately related in clear, tightly honed prose, each of these stories ends with a visceral punch. Proulx is definitely a writer to watch." [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
