        LOS COHETES DURARON TODO EL DIA - SIGNED BY PEDRO MEYER

      (MEYER, PEDRO). Meyer, Pedro. LOS COHETES DURARON TODO EL DIA - SIGNED BY PEDRO MEYER. Signed by the Photographer. Mexico City, MEXICO: Petroleos Mexicanos, 1988. First Edition. Small Folio. Cloth in Pictorial Dust Jacket. Photography Monograph. Fine/Fine. 148pp, profusely illustrated in b&w. Text in Spanish. "Los cohetes duraron todo el dia" is noted Mexican photographer Pedro Meyer's 1988 socially conscious photo essay commissioned by the national petroleum company Pemex to coincide with its fiftieth anniversary. Due however to Meyer's dedication of the volume to Lazaro Cardenas, the socialist-leaning former president who established Pemex in 1938 as part of his nationalization of Mexican oil production (whose son also happened to be an opposition candidate to then-current president Carlos Salinas earlier in the year), the newly elected government seized nearly all the copies printed to put a stop to the book's distribution. A brand new, pristine example of this uncommon and desirable document (cited on pages 198-199 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume II") acquired directly from the photographer additionally BOLDLY SIGNED "Pedro Meyer" in black ink beneath the frontispiece image on the second preliminary. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its weight and value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase. 968-6164-35-9 Inventory Number: 018260

        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. Randläsuren. Nr. 1 an Rücken u. Seitenkanten mit kleinen dezenten Restaurierungen u. Buchhandelsstempel, Umschlag von Nr. 1 u. Nr. 4 mit schwachen Notizen in Blei. Insgesamt gut erhaltene Folge der seltenen Reihe. - Raabe, Zeitschriften 16. - Raabe, Kat.

        [In Cyrillic type:] O proischozhdenii vidov [= On the origin of species]. St. Petersburg, Alexander Illich Glazunov (printed by Glazunov), 1864. 8vo. With 1 lithographed plate showing Darwin's famous branching tree of life, and 4 pages of Glazunov's publisher's advertisements at the end, describing 25 publications. Set entirely in Cyrillic type. Modern half brown morocco, with the original publisher's printed back wrapper bound in.

      Freeman 748; Alexander Vucinich, Darwin in Russian thought (1988), p. 19 & passim; WorldCat (4 copies). Rare first Russian edition of Darwin's On the origin of species, translated by Sergei A. Rachinskii, professor of botany at Moscow University. Like the first English edition it includes one plate, showing Darwin's famous branching tree of life, an icon of his theory of evolution. Darwin was both very popular and very influential in Russia. The present translator published an article presenting some of these ideas early in 1863, calling Darwin's Origin "one of the most brilliant books ever to be written in the natural sciences" (Vucinich, pp. 18-19). It helped give birth to a new generation of natural scientists in Russia whose students included the great Ivan Pavlov. But in Russia Darwin's influence went far beyond science. It inspired anti-czarist democratic political movements as well as Marx, Engels, Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin. Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky also refer to Darwin and his ideas became firmly imbedded in Russian culture generally. Foxed throughout, severely in a couple quires but not affecting the plate. Otherwise in good condition. It probably lacks an initial blank leaf. First Russian translation of Darwin's Origin, inaugurating a hey-day of natural science in Russia.

        Daijo kishinron giki [Commentary on the Awakening of Faith in the Mahayana]. By Fazang

      43; 57 leaves, eight columns per page. Part I ("kan jo") in two vols. 8vo (267 x 143 mm.) in orihon (accordion) format, pale brown paper wrappers, [Nara]: 1297. Extremely rare; this is one of the earliest substantial wood-block printed books created in Japan to survive. Todaiji Temple in Nara, founded in 728, was the chief temple of the Kegon sect of Buddhism and served as a center for the training of scholar monks. Part of the monks' activities was to print educational texts and to disseminate their religion using the new technology of woodblock printing. Two monks, Shoshu (1215-91) and Gyonen (1240-1321), were the first to establish an active printing program at the temple's printing house (the todaijiban). Collectively, the printing activities at the six main temples of Nara are today called naraban (nara editions). Any publication from the 13th century issued by any of the naraban is of the greatest rarity and almost never appears in the market. The text of this work is the classic exposition of Mahayana Buddhism. There is some controversy whether the text has an Indian Sanskrit origin or is a Chinese composition. Fazang (643-712), a Chinese scholar, wrote the present commentary which is generally recognized as one of the most authoritative works for the correct understanding of the text. Mahayana Buddhism arrived in Japan in the 7th century. "Todai-ji, though not exclusively devoted to one sect of Buddhism, had a strong interest in the doctrines and practices of the Kegon sect and acted as the center of Kegon Buddhism in Japan. Thus it was natural that when Todai-ji monks began to undertake printing, they should concentrate on Kegon doctrinal works… "The earliest known work printed at Todai-ji was a one-maki edition of a Kegon sect work, the Daijo-kishin-ron, produced in 1243. Later, emphasis was placed on the works of the Chinese monk Fa-tasang [Fazang], third patriarch of the Kegon sect, and copies of his works were printed in 1283 (the Kegon-gokyo-sho), 1297 (the Daijo-kishin-ron-giki) [the present book], 1328-31 (the Kegon-gyo tangen-ki), and 1332 (the Kegon-gyo zuisho-engi-sho). The first two were printed under the supervision of a monk with strong Zen affiliations named Zen-ni (1253-1325), and the last two were under a monk named Rikaku. It is unlikely, however, that either of these monks actually participated in the carving of the blocks. Zen-ni in particular was a comparatively important Buddhist scholar, and his role in the two works that mention his names was probably more in connection with the production of an authoritative text than with the actual printing."-Chibbet, The History of Japanese Printing and Book Illustration, p. 45. "These early and unadorned Buddhist texts seem to have been little sought or discovered by collectors outside Japan. Nothing of the sort exists in the Spencer collection of the New York Public Library, or the Chester Beatty collection in Dublin; Philip Hofer, most perceptive of collectors and a hawk for opportunity, seeking treasure in Japan of the 1950s, had his focus only upon manuscript. The Hyde collection formed at the same time, was an interesting exception."-Franklin, Exploring Japanese Books and Scrolls, p. 20. In very good condition, some worming restored. Manuscript reading marks have been supplied in black ink and punctuation marks and additional reading marks supplied in red ink. From the library of Donald and Mary Hyde (their sale, Christie's NYC, 7 October 1988, lot 57). Preserved in a box.

        [Binding title:] Egypten.[Cairo & Istanbul, ca. 1870-1880]. 3 oblong photo albums (31 x 45 cm), containing 112 stunning photographs of Egypt (mostly measuring: 20.5 x 26.5 cm, some slightly smaller: 20 x 25 cm and some slightly larger: 26.5 x 21 cm), all mounted paperdboard leaves measuring 30 x 42 cm. 49 photos are signed, in the negatives, by Béchard, 35 by Sebah and 28 are unsigned, and several have numbers and titles as well. The photographs in each volume are numbered in a later hand on the leaves (48, "19"[=21], 43). Near contemporary gold-tooled black half morocco; kept in matching half morocco boxes.

      Cf. N. Perez, Focus East (1988); G. Saretzky, History of photography (online). An extensive set of stunning photographs of Egypt by two of the most distinguished photographers of the Islamic world: Henri Béchard and Pascal Sebah. The collection is very well preserved and unusual in its scope. The volumes are thematically divided: the first album shows Cairo and daily life in the city, the second shows antiquities outside the city (pyramids, temples, funeral chambers, hieroglyphics etc.), and the third shows cities other than Cairo, e.g. Karnak, Louqsor, Bal el Molouk, Thebes, Edfou, Assouan, etc., along with ruins and other sites from those places. The photographs therefore not only show us the famous views and antiquities, but also give an acute portrayal of Egypt as a country and its everyday life at the time, which is not common in the usual touristic photo albums.Henri Béchard (active 1870-1880) was awarded the Gold medal at the Universal Exposition in 1878. His studio was in the Ezbekiyeh Gardens, Cairo. "His work is distinguished by the superb quality of his prints and the generally spectacular presentation of even the most common sites, such as the pyramids. His studies of people and costumes are even more interesting and point to a very personal involvement of the photographer in the life and customs of the country. His cityscapes and urban scenes were mostly taken from unusual angles in an attempt to cope with the narrow and confined spaces" (Perez). Pascal Sebah (1823-1886) was a leading photographer based in Constantinople, who catered to the Western European interest in the exotic "Orient" and the growing numbers of tourists visiting the Islamic world who wished to take home images of the city, ancient ruins in the surrounding area, portraits, and local people in traditional costumes. "Sebah rose to prominence because of his well-organized compositions, careful lighting, effective posing, attractive models, great attention to detail, and for the excellent print quality" ( Saretzky ).Only an occasional speck on the album leaves, otherwise a fine copy, with the photographs of a very high quality. The bindings also fine, only the boxes have some very minor wear along the extremities.

Reddish-brown cloth, gilt-stamped spine title, dust-jacket. Near fine. ISBN: 0300034504 FIRST EDITION. Published for the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art. [Vol. III]: "Captain James Cook’s three voyages of exploration to the Pacific between 1768 and 1780 were the first of the great European voyages of discovery to carry professional artists. The Art of Captain Cook’s Voyages contains all the known drawings and paintings done for these voyages as well as a fascinating narrative and explanatory text by Bernard Smith and Rudiger Joppien. Volume III, describing Cook’s final voyages, is of particular interest for its descriptions of the Pacific Northwest of America as well as Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific Islands." – YUP. Reviews: "The Joppien and Smith series, already hailed by reviewers of the first two volumes, is in turn a model for how to present scholarly explorations through visual communication. . . . In the spirit of Captain Cook the authors not only have compiled a resource for scholars, they have made it ’entertaining to the generality of readers.’" — David W. Plath, New York Times Book Review. "The two compilers of this massive collection are to be commended for the exhaustive task they have accomplished."—Dennis Puleston, New Scientist. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-glass: Sir John Tenniel's Illustrations; Ninety-one Prints From the Original Wood Blocks

      London: Macmillan; printed by the Rocket Press, 1988. First edition. Hardcover. Fine/fine. One of the really great Alice items, in an edition of 250 copies, this set as new, completely fine. Since their fist appearances in 1865 and 1872, there have been hundreds of printings of the Alice books with the Tenniel illustrations. All of these printings were from electroyped copies of the original wood blocks. In the past 150 years, no copies of the original images were printed from the original boxwood blocks until Macmillan decided on this edition. Because Macmillan had only used the original blocks to make electrotypes, the blocks survived in remarkably fine condition, and only one of the ninety-two original blocks was lost (printed here in electrotype). In the 1980s, Macmillan rediscovered the blocks (long forgotten in a bank vault) and commissioned a fine press company, The Rocket Press, to make a deluxe edition of the Tenniel illustrations by hand-inking the original blocks and printing all 91 images on a precision cylinder proofing press onto Alice Zerkall mould-made paper. Each printed images was then placed loose into an individual folder, each folder printed with relevant lines from Alice. Binding by The Fine Bindery, Wellinborough: the complete set of images-and-folders for each book placed loose in heavy morocco drop-back folding cases (burgundy leather over gray cloth, titles supplied in leather labels printed in gold). In addition to the two solander cases, there is a separate book (full gray cloth, title supplied in leather label printed in gold, also fine), "A Study of Sir John Tenniel's Wood-Engraved Illustrations" by Leo John De Freitas. All three volumes are in turn housed in a matching gray cloth slipcase (all fine, no bumps, etc). A separate announcement of the publication of the set, for friends of Macmillan Press, is laid in -- folded to fit the box, trivial wear. Individual prints from this set come up for sale occasionally, but this complete set in fine binding is very rare. After this printing, the blocks themselves were transferred to the British Library, never to be used again. Thus, this will remain the only edition of the iconic Tenniel illustrations ever printed from the actual blocks. There is a superb interview on Youtube with the director of Children's Books at Macmillan about the rediscovery and printing of this edition. Please contact the seller for more images and a link to the video.

        TYPED LETTER SIGNED ***Signed***

      Charlton, South Carolina 1988 - Typed letter on personal letterhead dated June 13, 1988. The letter is signed "W. C. Westmoreland" in blue ink. The letter has two folds from mailing, otherwise in fine condition. Born in South Carolina in 1914, General William Westmoreland was commander of the U.S. Military Assistance Command in Vietnam. Initially, Westmoreland was a popular figure, becoming a full four-star general and being named TIME magazine's "Man of the Year" in 1965, but the bitter legacy of his role in the war haunted him, as the number of U.S. troops engaged grew from less than 20,000 to approximately 500,000, and victory was elusive. He died in South Carolina in 2005. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Russian Icons

      New York: Rizzoli, 1988. 230p. 154 color illustraitions of icons, 14 additional color illlustrations. Published in cooperation with the Patriach of Moscow. Printed in a very small print run, this magnificient volume contains one hundred previously unpublished illustrations of icons found in the Archaology Office of the Ecclesiastical Academy in Moscow. The first five chapters take the reader through the end of the sixteenth century with illustrations that have only appeared previously in Russian language editions. Ivanov; however, has produced here over half his text with beautiful photographs of icons never before seen from the seventeenth to the nineteenth centuries. Chapter Six, for instance, devoted to the seventeenth century and the longest in the book may be regarded as the focal point of the work. The span of ten centuries covered by Ivanov indicates that his book is in part a celerbation of the one-thousandth anniversary of the Christiianiazation of russia.

        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. Randläsuren. Nr. 1 an Rücken u. Seitenkanten mit kleinen dezenten Restaurierungen u. Buchhandelsstempel, Umschlag von Nr. 1 u. Nr. 4 mit schwachen Notizen in Blei.

        Daijo kishinron giki [Commentary on the Awakening of Faith in the Mahayana]. By Fazang

      43; 57 leaves, eight columns per page. Part I ("kan jo") in two vols. 8vo (267 x 143 mm.) in orihon (accordion) format, pale brown paper wrappers, [Nara]: 1297. Extremely rare; this is one of the earliest substantial wood-block printed books created in Japan to survive. Todaiji Temple in Nara, founded in 728, was the chief temple of the Kegon sect of Buddhism and served as a center for the training of scholar monks. Part of the monks' activities was to print educational texts and to disseminate their religion using the new technology of woodblock printing. Two monks, Shoshu (1215-91) and Gyonen (1240-1321), were the first to establish an active printing program at the temple's printing house (the todaijiban). Collectively, the printing activities at the six main temples of Nara are today called naraban (nara editions). Any publication from the 13th century issued by any of the naraban is of the greatest rarity and almost never appears in the market.The text of this work is the classic exposition of Mahayana Buddhism. There is some controversy whether the text has an Indian Sanskrit origin or is a Chinese composition. Fazang (643-712), a Chinese scholar, wrote the present commentary which is generally recognized as one of the most authoritative works for the correct understanding of the text. Mahayana Buddhism arrived in Japan in the 7th century."Todai-ji, though not exclusively devoted to one sect of Buddhism, had a strong interest in the doctrines and practices of the Kegon sect and acted as the center of Kegon Buddhism in Japan. Thus it was natural that when Todai-ji monks began to undertake printing, they should concentrate on Kegon doctrinal works…"The earliest known work printed at Todai-ji was a one-maki edition of a Kegon sect work, the Daijo-kishin-ron, produced in 1243. Later, emphasis was placed on the works of the Chinese monk Fa-tasang [Fazang], third patriarch of the Kegon sect, and copies of his works were printed in 1283 (the Kegon-gokyo-sho), 1297 (the Daijo-kishin-ron-giki) [the present book], 1328-31 (the Kegon-gyo tangen-ki), and 1332 (the Kegon-gyo zuisho-engi-sho). The first two were printed under the supervision of a monk with strong Zen affiliations named Zen-ni (1253-1325), and the last two were under a monk named Rikaku. It is unlikely, however, that either of these monks actually participated in the carving of the blocks. Zen-ni in particular was a comparatively important Buddhist scholar, and his role in the two works that mention his names was probably more in connection with the production of an authoritative text than with the actual printing."-Chibbet, The History of Japanese Printing and Book Illustration, p. 45."These early and unadorned Buddhist texts seem to have been little sought or discovered by collectors outside Japan. Nothing of the sort exists in the Spencer collection of the New York Public Library, or the Chester Beatty collection in Dublin; Philip Hofer, most perceptive of collectors and a hawk for opportunity, seeking treasure in Japan of the 1950s, had his focus only upon manuscript. The Hyde collection formed at the same time, was an interesting exception."-Franklin, Exploring Japanese Books and Scrolls, p. 20.In very good condition, some worming restored. Manuscript reading marks have been supplied in black ink and punctuation marks and additional reading marks supplied in red ink.From the library of Donald and Mary Hyde (their sale, Christie's NYC, 7 October 1988, lot 57). Preserved in a box.

        Neopostmoderinism or Dieser Rasen ist kein Hundeklo or Gabberjabb Number 6

      [Mt. Horeb, WI: Perishable Press, 1988. Edition limited to 125 copies (this, no. 94) "printed; perforated; drawn; cut & die-cut; rubber-stamped; collaged; taped; grammeted; debossed; signed; notarized; sealed; numbered; ponce-wheeled; notched; torn; bitten & pawed copies," this number 94, 7" x 9.75", deceptively paginated; an elaborately printed artist book on a variety of paper and other material hand-made by Hamady, recycled marbled boards, fine in a fine clamshell box. Hamady's Gabberjabb 6 is an artist book for the fine press set. He pokes fun at almost every printing convention, from title pages, to pastedowns, to pagination, to the value placed on signed work (his is signed by his mother and notarized for good measure). He infuriates those obsessed with original states by taping the colophon up behind a "tamper resistant" seal (luckily for this cataloger the seal was already broken upon receipt) and declines to paste down his pastedowns, which makes the back of the boards (rescued from a library trash bin) part of the content. All of this is executed with the greatest skill and precision. The text, as nonsensical as it is, is beautifully designed and invites attempt after frustrated attempt at comprehension.
