        King Ink (Signed First Edition)

      Black Spring Press, London 1988 - First Edition. SIGNED by Cave just after the title page, dated in the year of publication: "Nick Cave / 1990." But for a tiny bit of wear at one corner (only visible on close inspection). Fine and unread in a Fine dust jacket. Author and singer/songwriter Cave's first book, which collects early lyrics from his recordings with The Birthday Party and the Bad Seeds (up to and including the Bad Seeds' record, "Your Funeral, My Trial"), short stories and short plays. Cave's dark vision, coupled with his strong connections to primitive folk and blues music, and murder ballads in particular, has yielded an artist whose music rivals the intensity and integrity of Tom Waits and Johnny Cash. Even more impressively, Cave recently made a strong debut as a screenwriter in the hard-boiled Australian western, "The Proposition." Extremely uncommon.

        The Old-time Printer

      Baltimore: Xavier Press, 1988. vi, 18pp. Samuel Clemens's account of his formative time spent as a printer's apprentice, presented as a speech at a dinner for New York printers. Illustrated with a frontispiece portrait of Clemens, and a vignette depicting a compositor setting type. This copy is in a designer binding by the Italian-British bookbinder Paolo Taddeo. Onlays of salmon, grey, and black morocco form the shape of a piece of lead type, outlined in palladium-leaf tooling, creating a symmetrical design on each of the covers. The artist chose the letter H for his design, citing the letter's visual stability and steadiness, "with both feet firmly planted on the ground." As someone whose first language is Italian, he also notes that his selection of the letter H is "controversial," since it is not pronounced in his native language and gives him difficulty in spoken English. However, he writes, "in my mother tongue it's a letter of vital importance in the way that it changes the sounds of the consonants it attaches to." Housed in a clamshell box that contains a drawer for the two pieces of seven- and ten-point type included with the book. Taddeo was elected a Licentiate of Designer Bookbinders in 2013 and has twice won the Arthur Johnson Award in the organization's annual competition. (2 1/2 by 2; 65x53mm).

      London: Unwin Hyman 1988-90 Five Volumes 8vo vi,297; vi,385; vi,393; vi,380; viii,455pp - The History of Middle-Earth Vols. 1-5. A Very Fine matching set of the Unwin Hyman reprint series, all in Very Fine Brodart-protected Dust Wrappers, with the Unwin Hyman logo to the spines. This set is comprised of The Book of Lost Tales Parts I & II, The Lays of Beleriand, The Shaping of Middle-Earth, and The Lost Road and Other Stories. Lost Tales Book One is the 1990 Printing, all the others are the 1988 Printings. These five volumes together comprise the bulk of J.R.R. Tolkien's early writings on Middle-Earth, from The Book of Lost Tales, the first major work of imagination by J.R.R. Tolkien, begun in 1916-17 when he was 25 years old, taking in such sustained works as the Lay of the Children of Hurin, and the Lay of Leithian; writings detailing the mythological background of Middle-Earth, such as the Ambarkanta or Shape of the World; the Annals of Valinor & Beleriand which chronicle the First Age of Middle-Earth; the earliest versions the Silmarillion; through to the later forms of the Annals, The Lost Road, and The Lhammas. These writings bring the History of Middle-Earth up to the point where The Lord of the Rings was begun, and the next four volumes of the series chronicle the History of The Lord of the Rings. A highly desireable set, becoming increasingly difficult to obtain in this condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      1988 1988 - 100 x 50 cm, Tadellos Signiert und datiert. Valentin Lustig (*1955 ) aus Klausenburg in Siebenbürgen (Rumänien) stammender Künstler. Seit 1983 lebt Lustig in der Schweiz. Seine Kunst reicht von naiv bis surrealistisch-phantastisch, und enthält zahlreiche Anspielungen auf mythische und biblische Themen. Als Kind von Holocaustüberlebenden thematisiert Lustig auch das Schicksal des jüdischen Volkes. Doch dies kommt nicht explizit zum Ausdruck, da er sich einer individuellen und symbolischen bis ins Groteske reichenden Bildersprache bedient, die verschiedene Deutungen zulässt.

As someone whose first language is Italian, he also notes that his selection of the letter H is "controversial," since it is not pronounced in his native language and gives him difficulty in spoken English. However, he writes, "in my mother tongue it's a letter of vital importance in the way that it changes the sounds of the consonants it attaches to." Housed in a clamshell box that contains a drawer for the two pieces of seven- and ten-point type included with the book. Taddeo was elected a Licentiate of Designer Bookbinders in 2013 and has twice won the Arthur Johnson Award in the organization's annual competition. (2 1/2 by 2; 65x53mm).

        Los cohetes duraron todo el día (The Rockets Went on All Day)

      Petróleos Mexicanos, Mexico City 1988 - First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Black laminated cloth-covered boards with title stamped in gold on cover and spine, with photographically illustrated dust jacket. Photographs and preface (in Spanish) by Pedro Meyer. Introduction (in Spanish) by Francisco Rojas G., Director General, Pemex. Additional text (in Spanish) quoting individuals pictured in the book. Includes a list of plates. 152 pp., with 163 black-and-white plates finely printed in Mexico by Artes Gráficas Panorama, S.A. de C.V. 15-3/4 x 11-1/4 inches. This first edition was limited to 5000 copies. CONDITION: Fine in Fine dust jacket. [Cited in Martin Parr and Gerry Badger, The Photobook: A History, Volume II. (London and New York: Phaidon, 2006).] Los cohetes duraron todo el día was realized to mark the 50th anniversary of Pemex, the nationalized Mexican oil company. It was, however, never released due to "political scuffling." Nonetheless, as Martin Parr and Gerry Badger assert, "this is a fine example of a company photobook in the journalistic mode, a mini The Family of Man in outlook, but one with more of a social viewpoint and political bite. It begins [like The Family of Man] with the birth of a baby, a new being whose life will be enriched by the oil company or, rather, by the fact that Mexico's oil deposits were nationalized for the benefit of its people. And it is ordinary people who are to the fore in this book, from the workers who are employed by the national oil company, to the Mexican masses who benefit from the much-needed foreign currency it brings. Meyer tells this simple but politically pertinent story in a bold and graphic way, in a publication that, although a company photobook, [succeeds] in its celebration of the Latin American proletariat."

        Nach Der Natur (From Nature)

      Franz Greno, Nordlingen, Germany 1988 - Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Bound in full green cloth. Both the spine and the front panel are stamped in black. Quarto. 99pps., plus six double-page photos (including the endpapers) by Thomas Becker. An excellent, collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. The text is immaculate; no apparent reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has a small closed tear at the top of the front panel. A long poem in three sections. Sebald's first book-length, literary publication -- issued at a time when he had little public profile, with only a couple of academic pieces to his credit along with poems in various periodicals. ".Der Text, der dank seiner besonderen sprachlichen Qualitat, wenn gleich ohne Metrik und Reim, den Charakter eines langen Gedichts hat, beschreibt in der Form weitgespannter Denkbilder jene schmerzhaften Stellen, an denen die Koordinaten von Natur, Kunst und Gesellschaft sich uberschneiden. Eine lange Zeit, von 1500 bis in die fur den Schreibenden kaum erst zuruckliegende Vergangenheit, wird durchquert. Der unbekannte Grunewald, der ein eingezogen und melancholisches Leben gefuhrt hat, und das furchtbare Unternehmen der Beringschen Alaska-Expedition bilden die historischen Vorwurfe fur unseren Willen, alles in Erfahrung zu bringen. Das Stillschweigen der Natur und die Antwort des Menschen, seine Gefuhle und seine Gewalt, werden begreifbar als ein zur Selbstzerstorung tendierendes System, dem sich auch die Kunst nicht entziehen kann. Und dennoch zeigen diese Prosagedichte, wie man bisweilen abheben kann von der Erde." Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile. Satisfaction guaranteed or all costs you've incurred will be promptly refunded. Thanks for your interest in Nooks Of Books.
