        Il Pendolo di Foucault [Foucault's Pendulum: Signed Association Copy]

      Milano: Bompiani, 1988. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good/very good. A Very Good copy of the true first edition, first printing, "I edizione Bompiani ottobre 1988", published in the author's native Italy (spine ends pushed, corners bumped, light surface marking, some soiling to the edges of the closed page block, expected page toning), in a Very Good dust jacket (small closed puncture near to the front panel -- near to where the front panel turns to the spine -- and a short tear at each end of the spine repaired by tape on the jacket verso, otherwise Near Fine with rich coloring and only a bit of wear), SIGNED BY UMBERTO ECO on the half-title with a brief and intimate presentation as follows: "A Lucrecia / Sotto mivuda / pendolare /Umberto" which translated to English means "To Lucrecia under my watchful gaze in her travels Umberto". The inscription, written in the Italian Piedmontese dialect peculiar to Umberto Eco's hometown of Alessandria, is in the familiar form, implying intimacy. In official Italian, "pendolare" means "commuter", but in Piedmontese, recognized as a sub-language today and used by Eco in this inscription, the word means "traveler" and the sense of the inscription is that Lucrecia (the Piedmontese dialect version of "Lucretia") is a traveler to and from Eco himself. Umberto Eco's second novel, "Il Pendolo di Foucault" centers around three employees of a vanity publisher who, having read manuscript after manuscript presenting occult conspiracy theories, decide as an amusement to invent their own conspiracy. The three grow increasingly obsessed with their creation, sometimes forgetting that they themselves made it up. Other conspiracy theorists hear of the three's fake conspiracy and believe it to be real, with one secretive group believing that one of the three, Belbo, possesses the key to the lost treasure of the Knights Templar. The consequences then go far beyond what the three employees ever imagined. Signed copies of this, the true first edition of the book, written in Italian, are absolute hen's teeth, and this copy has the added distinction of bearing a very intimate inscription from Umberto Eco. A Very Good and RARE SIGNED ASSOCIATION COPY OF THE TRUE FIRST EDITION. RARE.

        Three panoramic views of Port Jackson, in New South Wales, with the town of Sydney, and the adjacent scenery. After original drawings by...Taylor...drawn from nature...between 1817 and 1822 and engraved in London by R. Havell and Son in 1823. Printed from the original plates now in the Dixson Galleries of the State Library of New South Wales

      London: Alecto Editions and the State Library of New South Wales, 1988. Large oblong folio. (24 ½ x 31 inches). Letterpress title, 1 leaf explanatory text, 1 leaf colophon. 1 letterpress and half-tone key plate, three plates, engraved by Robert Havell and son, printed by Edward Egerton- Williams in colours 'a la poupee' and finished by hand, each with printer's blindstamp and pencilled notation on the margin 'B[onne] A T[irer]', extra-illustrated with three uncoloured printer's initial trial proofs, printed in black. Unbound as issued in original cloth portfolio by A. W. Lumsden of Edinburgh, with original printed card label inset on upper cover, small format limitation leaf mounted on front pastedown, ribbon ties. Unique copy of this fine limited edition, with 'bonne a tirer' plates and printer's trial proofs. The edition was limited to 110 copies, but the present copy is, not surprisingly, unnumbered. The brilliantly detailed prints are complimented by the proofs which give a fascinating insight into the working methods of a master craftsman. "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 views of the Panorama present 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..."

Inscribed, dated and SIGNED by Armstrong to ffep to longtime Pan Am spokesman Jeff Kreindler: “ 25pp. A largely technical discussion of the challenges posed by space flight and the development of the lunar module.

        Original Drawing [For a Book by William Burroughs]

      1988. An original drawing by Wilson for William Burroughs' book Tornado Alley. This image was included in the exhibition "Ports of Entry: William Burroughs and the Arts" that was mounted by the Los Angeles Country Museum of Art in 1996, and it is reproduced on page 140 of the exhibition catalog. Interestingly, the illustration in the book does not show some of the work that Wilson did, as it was done using nonrepro blue pencil which does not show up when photographed: Wilson's edits didn't appear in Tornado Alley and they don't appear in Ports of Entry but they are quite visible in the work itself. Wilson, one of the great artists of the underground comix of the 1960s and beyond, whom R. Crumb has said was a major influence on Crumb's own work, collaborated with Burroughs on a number of projects. This is not only a significant work of art, and a significant association with Burroughs, but it is also signed by Wilson, who has added, "To Nelson" next to his signature: Wilson gave this work to his friend Nelson Lyon, who loaned it to the exhibition and is listed in the book as one of the lenders to the exhibit. This is, in effect, a three-way association: Nelson Lyon was the co-producer of Burroughs's Dead City Radio, an album of Burroughs reading his work against a background of experimental music by various artists. 9-3/4" x 6-3/4". Matted and framed. Fine. .

Hannibal Lector has become one of the most well-known villians of all time, a name as recognizable as Frankenstein and Dracula. A touchstone of 20th century horror literature.

And it is the automaton, in its beautiful, uncanny imitation of life, that will link two strangers confronted with the mysteries of creation, the miracle and catastrophe of human invention, and the body&#39;s astonishing chemistry of love and feeling" (Publisher&#39;s blurb). An absolute "must-have" edition for Peter Carey collectors. <b><i> This copy is one of the Deluxe Slipcased And Leatherbound Edition, indicated as such on the Front Limitation Page as Roman Numeral Number XI, and very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen by Peter Carey. This title will become a contemporary classic. This is one of very few copies of the British Deluxe Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> Regarded by Harold Bloom as one of the canonical writers of the 20th century. Winner of the Booker Prize in 1988 for "Oscar & Lucinda" and in 2001 for "True History of the Kelly Gang".

        My Pretty Pony ---by Stephen King ---a Signed, Limited Edition ( Aluminum Edition with Digital Clock with Custom Slipcase )

      N.Y.: Whitney Museum of American Art, 1988, 1st Edition, 1st Printing ----------hardcover, a Fine unread copy in a Near Fine/ Fine custom made clamshell slipcase (not issued with this production but strongly recommended by The Whitney Museum as a safe harbour for this unique piece), book is approx. 19 x 13 inches, a stunning production and missing from many KING collections, bound in aluminum with a red leather spine, digital clock mounted in the front aluminum panel (battery has run down but can be easily replaced), one of 280 copies, signed by KING and KRUGER, 100 copies were reserved for patrons of the museum, 150 copies were offered for sale, 30 Roman numeraled copies were reserved for family and friends, this is one of the 150 copies edition, when this tome was issued purchasers were given information about caring for the book with the recommendation (certainly a strong suggestion) that the buyer might want to have a custom case made for the book, the company BOOKLAB INC, was recommended for this, this copy DOES HAVE the custom clam-shell tray case designed and produced by BookLab Inc., the case is Near Fine/Fine and is a perfect holder for this massive, weighty book, this copy also has the original BookLab letter and order form for this traycase, that letter states: "A handsome drop-spine box was made to house (this) volume. The box is covered in two tones of grey, with grey tweed book cloth on the case and steel grey fabric on the walls. The title is stamped in silver on the red leather spine label. The interior is lined in steel gray (cloth), and the entire ensemble harmonizes with the book in color and style. ---", As well, a letter (and a catalogue for BL Inc) (both in a Whitney Museum envelope) is included on how to care for the book, including care for the aluminum covers and how to change the battery in the clock, this letter also states that the interleaving protective sheets between the illustrations and the text can be removed ---"in 1990 when the ink is fully dry"---, of course the lithographs were dry but the interleaves were only there for "just-in-case" protection to protect from any potential bleeding of inks, this copy has NOT had the interleaf protectors removed, so this copy is as issued, additional images are available, hard to imagine a nicer, more complete copy, (and finally, this is in the original shipping box for the traycase ---just a cardboard box with packing but it is what the traycase was shipped in when ordered ), any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo. Signed. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/No Jacket as issued. Illus. by Barbara Kruger Design.

        King Ink (Signed First Edition)

      London: Black Spring Press, 1988. First Edition. 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&#39;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&#39; record, "Your Funeral, My Trial"), short stories and short plays. Cave&#39;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.
