        Untitled (Three Inmates)

      - Black koki pen and watercolour on paper. Signed. 30 x 20.5 cm. Although Beiles always made pen and pencil drawings from the late 30s onwards, his interest in making art intensified from the mid 80s when he was inspired by his friend William Burroughs's exhibition at the Tony Shafrazi Gallery in New York in 1988. I have a letter in my archive from the Shafrazi Gallery confirming that they had posted a catalogue to Beiles of this current show. The letter was written by Christopher Gallagher and dated May 7, 1988. Burroughs even said in an interview around this time that "a couple of shot-gun paintings and drawings taking me only a few hours can earn me more than the entire fee earned in writing a book that takes years". Beiles started to exhibit regularly in Johannesburg from the early 90s onwards and was represented by the now defunct Newtown Galleries. Artworks by Beiles are considered rare with only a couple of hundred drawings in watercolours estimated to have been produced. This work is of historical importance due to the fact that Beiles spent more than half his adult life in psychiatric hospitals all around the world, and has been painted on the reverse side of a pyschiatrist's application form for "drugs not on the shortlist". The psychiatric institution that submitted this form and where Beiles was a patient on many occasions is called TARA-the H.Moross Centre which still operates in Sandton, Johannesburg. The form is in both English and Afrikaans which was standard practice during the Apartheid years. As a result, many of Sinclair's artworks were produced while spending time with fellow inmates. The work is unframed. ONCO ( Or Nearest Cash Offer). Free shipping and packaging worldwide. Registered Airmail. Extra Charge for Courier Service. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        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.

        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.

        Sights from a Steeple

      Bremen, Maine and New York: Red Angel Press, 1988. Signed, Limited Edition, one of 100 copies, all on Frankfurt White and Sekishu paper. Page size: 8-3/4 x 7-1/2 inches. 22pp; plus woodengraving which folds out to 38 x 18 inches and surrounds the text when opened. Bound: dark green buckram blind-stamped with abstract image of steeple, title stamped in dark gray on spine, fine. Hawthorne's sketch from his lofty perch (the steeple) of a New England seaport, the surrounding countryside, distant sea, gathering storm clouds, portray the author as observer -- a role Hawthorne embodied. Keller has set the text in Plantin type; the woodcut is printed in three colors: green, blue, and black. The unfolded woodcut which surrounds the text is reminiscent of Salem (presumably Hawthorne's seaport in the text), but, the artist, tells us was inspired by Camden and Wiscasset, Maine and the villages of Cape Ann, MA. A unique presentation -- as with all the books of the Red Angel Press -- evocative of the text, paying hommage to it while expanding our understanding.

        What Mad Pursuit: A Personal View of Scientific Discovery

      New York Basic Books 1988 - Octavo. Original blue boards, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. Minor bumps to corners of boards. An excellent, fresh copy in the jacket with minor fading of the spine panel. First edition, first printing. With a slip inscribed by the author, "for Bull, Francis Crick" loosely inserted in an archival paper envelope. Crick was co-discoverer, with James Watson, of the molecular structure of DNA, but his signature is less common than that of his younger colleague. What Mad Pursuit is Crick's "long-awaited" personal account of the discovery of DNA's structure, his scientific philosophy and his role in shaping the emerging field of molecular biology, and his life and scientific work in the years since. "This is a book to be read more than once; the beauty of its style masks much hard science and subtle thought. In spite of having heard it many times from others, the story of DNA as told by Crick still makes a marvelous read. A sense of clarity of thought combined with an equally strong sense of commitment and overlaid with the deep power of his thinking runs through the book" (Nanjundiah, review in the Journal of Genetics, December 1989).

        Aunt Sallie's lament.

      [West Burke, VT: Janus Press, 1988]. Folio (28.6 cm; 11.25" book. 30.6 cm; 12.125" case). [13] ff. The first Janus Press quilt book. This visually engaging and heartbreaking five-sided, multicolored book in a patterned mauve clamshell was designed to look like a series of quilting squares, with each page cut into a different shape, in a concertina binding structure. As the pages are turned, select words and phrases from Kaufman's poem conjuring a lonely older woman remembering a brief love affair emerge and remain visible, giving a glimpse into the narrator's regret.    The book was "designed by Claire Van Vliet based on a binding structure developed by Hedi Kyle & made with Linda Wray and boxes made by Judi Conant, Guildhall Vermont." A note in the clamshell reports the types of paper used as "Fabriano tan, green, & blue mouldmade cover; Barcham Green handmade India, Boxley & India Office; Twinrocker Aura and Lilac Wind; and from MacGregor-Vinzani Blue Fleck, Brockport and the abaca lilac, pink, tan & grey for the binding concertina."    => A limitation statement, in letter-press and signed by Kaufman and Van Vliet, announces that this unnumbered and unlettered copy is specifically for Andrew Hedden.         Fine, Janus Press 1981–90, 20. Bound and housed as above, the smallest bumps to corners, back cover starting to warp at one edge, case pristine. => A complex, interesting work of book art in a special copy.

        The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman with an essay on the author and his novel by Melvyn New, and with thirty-nine photo-collage illustrations by John Baldessari

      San Francisco: Arion Press, 1988. Slipcased. Three volume set slipcased. Volume 1: 620p., hardbound in marbled boards under green half-calf gilt; the identical marbled paper is tipped-in on page 216 as "the motley emblem," and it is a fine example of the marbler's art. This volume contains the complete text of the novel. The wide moss-green spine panel of soft calfskin exhibits faintest scratching, a fine copy nonetheless. Volume 2: 42p., illustrated with reproductions of Hogarth's illustrations for "Shandy" fine in green stiff card covers and gilt. Volume 3: 9 double-page photo-collages in an accordion-fold binding of green cloth over boards and gilt title, signed in pencil by the artist. All in a fine green cloth-over-boards slipcase. A 12p. prospectus with color centerfold reproduction of Baldessari's art in stapled green covers laid-into the case. Publication no. 26. Gorgeous production which stays true to Sterne's typography and is brilliantly, humorously illustrated by Baldessari.

        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.
