        Illustrationes florae Novae Hollandiae sive Icones Generum quae in Prodromo Novae Hollandiae et Insulae Van Diemen descripsit Robertus Brown

      Alecto Historical Editions, London 1989 - Very large folio, 624 x 490mm, with a series of 15 engraved plates after Bauer, in two states, sepia and bound, or hand-coloured (by Karen Lightfoot or Helen Wellard) and unbound; number XV, in fine condition in the original cloth-backed marbled boards, the coloured plates loose within window mounts, all contained within a single very large green morocco-backed solander box, by Aquarius. From an edition of 35. One of just 35 numbered copies (this copy is numbered XV): Ferdinand Bauer's wonderful botany of the Flinders voyage, with the plates in two states - uncoloured (sepia) and coloured. This is an exceptional modern publication, highly limited, which makes use of the original copper-engraved plates to recreate Bauer's extraordinary, rare and beautiful work on the botany of Australia. This is the only printing to have been done from the original plates since their first use of them for the original 1813 edition. 'The 15 plates which make up this publication were stipple-engraved on copper by Bauer between 1806 and 1813 after his watercolours drawn from nature on Captain Matthew Flinders' circumnavigation of Australia in HMS Investigator 1801-1803. Both plates and watercolours are now in the collection of the British Museum (Natural History)?'. These new impressions, the first to be taken from the original copperplates since Bauer's 1813 edition, were printed a la poupée and hand-finished in watercolour. The original printing of Bauer's work in 1813 is exceptionally rare today. "Probably less than 50 copies? were issued" (Great Flower Books, 1990). Both Stafleu and Great Flower Books note that Ferdinand Bauer engraved the plates himself; according to Bauer's elder brother, the amount of work involved was too much for Ferdinand and he was forced to suspend the project after only three parts were published as he could not find competent engravers to complete the work. Born in Feldsberg, Austria in 1760, Ferdinand was the son of the court painter to the Prince of Liechtenstein. He was trained in botany at the monastery of Feldsberg under the protection of Norbert Boccius (1729-1800). Ferdinand was later sent to study at the Royal Botanical Gardens at Schonbrunn Palace before travelling to England and studying with John Sibthorp, the celebrated Professor of Botany at Oxford. Bauer's first published work was the famous series of engravings that he made for Sibthorp's great Flora Graeca -described by Joseph Hooker as "the greatest botanical work that has ever appeared" (On the Flora of Australia, 1859). His talent soon caught the attention of Sir Joseph Banks who was involved in the preparations for Matthew Flinders's voyage in the Investigator, which was to make the first circumnavigation of Australia. Ferdinand was invited to be the expedition's artist, whilst the botanist on this momentous expedition was Robert Brown. In 1801 Bauer was employed on the coastal survey of New Holland carried out under the command of Captain Flinders. In 1803, after the Investigator was condemned as unseaworthy, Flinders left for England to obtain another ship to complete the expedition. Bauer and Brown, however, continued their travels in Australia. They were an ideal team, Brown describing the collected specimens and Bauer sketching and painting them. Bauer continued, collecting and sketching on Norfolk Island and in New South Wales, while Brown went south to Van Diemen's Land. They finally returned to England in 1805 with several thousand botanical specimens and many hundreds of sketches of plants. Sir Joseph Banks persuaded the Admiralty to pay Ferdinand to work on a selection of the plates for publication, and the book was prepared in three parts of five plates each. Both coloured and uncoloured copies of the book were issued in 1813. Ferdinand returned to his native Austria and died in Vienna in 1826. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Norwegian Wood

      Tokyo: Kodansha, 1989.. Tokyo: Kodansha, 1989. First editions in English of the author's most well-known work. Small octavos, original wrappers as issued. Both volumes are fine in fine dust jackets. Both volumes are signed by Murakami, volume one is signed in both English and Japanese and volume 2 in Japanese. Laid in is the original bookmark in volume one. Norwegian Wood is a nostalgic story of loss and sexuality. The story's protagonist and narrator is Toru Watanabe, who looks back on his days as a freshman university student living in Tokyo. Through Toru's reminiscences we see him develop relationships with two very different women — the beautiful yet emotionally troubled Naoko, and the outgoing, lively Midori. The novel is set in Tokyo during the late 1960s, a time when Japanese students, like those of many other nations, were protesting against the established order. While it serves as the backdrop against which the events of the novel unfold, Murakami (through the eyes of Toru and Midori) portrays the student movement as largely weak-willed and hypocritical. Murakami adapted the first section of the novel from an earlier short story, "Firefly." The story was subsequently included in the collection Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman.

        Isabel Bishop. Eight Etchings, 1925-1931

      New York: Sylvan Cole Gallery / Midtown Galleries, 1989 - A portfolio of eight etchings by Bishop, each in its own folder. From a total edition of 60, all printed on fine Rives wove paper, THIS IS THE UNIQUE SET OF BONS A TIRER ("BATs"), printed for Sylvan Cole, the publisher. Since the edition could be printed only after the BATs were produced, this is THE FIRST SET PRINTED. Each etching is justified ("BAT") and bears Bishop's stamped signature (she had died in 1988). Furthermore, this is an outstanding association copy, having been in the private collection of Sylvan Cole (1918-2005), dean of American print dealers, until his death. Cole, a close friend of Bishop's, supervised the compilation of Teller's catalogue raisonne of her prints. Large folio. Loose as issued in the original cloth clamshell case. FINE AND BRIGHT, with no defects. Teller 1, 2, 5A, 8, 10B, 10C, 12, and 13. IMPORTANT NOTE: During March, 2006, hundreds of prints represented as being from "the Sylvan Cole collection" were sold at public auction. In fact, ALL of these items were from his leftover gallery inventory, not his private collection. As far as I know, the few items I offer from Sylvan's collection are the ONLY items anywhere on the market which are actually from his private collection (which he kept in his apartment, not his gallery). I acquired them all directly from Sylvan (my uncle), mainly in spring, 2005. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        WILLIAM S. BURROUGHS: L'ARTE NAGUAL (NAGUAL ART) - INSCRIBED BY BURROUGHS TO DAVID HOCKNEY

      Cleto Polcina, Rome 1989 - First Printing, one of 1,500 copies. Square quarto; light brown wrappers, with titles printed in navy blue and burgundy on spine and front panel; [44pp]; illus; text is in Italian and English. Inscribed by Burroughs to the artist David Hockney several pages in: "To David Hockney, Light use could precipitate the Stendhal-Syndrome, William S. Burroughs, July 22, 1989 (place written below, but not legible.)." Single closed tear at the right edge of the front cover, else Near Fine. An Italian exhibition catalogue for a collection of Burrough's shotgun art and collages from the October and Tony Shafrazy Galleries. The catalogue highlights 15 pieces of Burroughs' artwork, containing both full-color and black and white plates. In his essay contained within the catalogue, Burroughs explains that the title is derived from a concept found within the Carlos Casteneda books, where Don Juan makes a distinction between the "tonal" universe and the "nagual." The "tonal" universe is the everyday cause-and-effect universe, which is predictable because it is pre-recorded. The "nagual" is the unknown, the unpredictable, the uncontrollable. Burroughs' artwork, much like his writing, reflects that unpredictable and uncontrollable style. He made use of his rifle as a medium to transform his paintings, attacking wooden surfaces with little bombs and explosions of color. An uncommon and elusive Burroughs item, with a superb association between two prominent and influential artists. [Attributes: First Edition]

The story's protagonist and narrator is Toru Watanabe, who looks back on his days as a freshman university student living in Tokyo. Through Toru's reminiscences we see him develop relationships with two very different women — the beautiful yet emotionally troubled Naoko, and the outgoing, lively Midori. The novel is set in Tokyo during the late 1960s, a time when Japanese students, like those of many other nations, were protesting against the established order. While it serves as the backdrop against which the events of the novel unfold, Murakami (through the eyes of Toru and Midori) portrays the student movement as largely weak-willed and hypocritical. Murakami adapted the first section of the novel from an earlier short story, "Firefly." The story was subsequently included in the collection Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman.

        The Watercolours and Drawings of Thomas Bewick and his Workshop Apprentices. In two volumes

      Northumberland - Thomas Bewick Birthplace Trust, 1989. Northumberland - Thomas Bewick Birthplace Trust, 1989 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A lovely set examining the engraver Thomas Bewick and his work. Portrait frontispieces to both volumes and numerous illustrations in the text throughout, many colour, many full page, depicting examples of Bewick's work. With an introduction and notes by Iain Bain. Complete in two volumes. Thomas Bewick (1753-1828) was a wood-engraver. He published huge numbers of books for children with wonderful illustrations, but his national reputation was fully established by his General History of Quadrupeds, published in 1790, and his History of British Birdsland birds in 1797, and water birds in 1804. The inspiration sprang from his great dissatisfaction with the crudely illustrated books of his youth. Apart from the excellence of the principal figures, the numerous tailpiece vignettes that enlivened every spare space in the book came in for special notice. More than 600 blocks had been engraved for the two volumes of the Birds when the last of the eight editions of Bewick's lifetime had been published. DNBCondition: In cloth bindings. Externally excellent, very little shelfwear, just one or two marks. Internally, firmly bound. Beautifully bright and clean throughout. Overall: NEAR FINE.
