        The Georgics [Signed]; Les Georgiques [Signee]

      London: John Calder, 1989. First English language edition. Hardcover. Fine/fine. A Fine copy of the first UK edition, first printing, in a Fine dust jacket, SIGNED BY CLAUDE SIMON on the front free endpaper; Claude Simon's most important work (rivaled only by "The Flanders Road" - 1961), a novel about the horror, waste, and stupidity of war. Claude Simon who "in his novel combines the poet's and the painter's creativeness with a deepened awareness of time in the depiction of the human condition" won the 1985 Nobel Prize in Literature. In both the Press Release announcing the Award, and in the Presentation Speech delivered by Professor Lars Gyllensten of the Swedish Academy, named The Georgics as being Simon's "most important work", stating as follows: "Simon's experiences from the Spanish Civil War were similar, depicted in Le Palace and his latest and most important novel, Les Georgiques, 1981. For all the sympathies which he and others might have for those faithful to the government who fought against the fascists, it soon turned out that these government champions for their part, could by no means follow any regular and intelligently planned strategies and operations. On the contrary, the fighters were split into factions and mutual strife, giving way to meaningless and absurd foolhardiness, obstructions and hazardous enterprises. In Les Georgiques George Orwell appears, thinly disguised. Simon's picture of the Spanish Civil War and of the intellectual idealists who like Orwell, and his English sympathizers, wanted to find an ideologically clear reason in the fight against oppression, shapes itself into a version, at once grotesque and tragic, compassionate and ironic, of war's reality and of man's inability to guide his fate and correct his conditions. La Route des Flandres and Les Georgiques are richly decorated compositions which, with sensuous perspicacity and linguistic invocation, conjure up an extremely complicated pattern of personal memories and family traditions, of experiences during modern war and of equivalents from bygone ages, to be exact the Napoleonic era." Copies of this work in the first French edition are surprisingly uncommon to the market. Copies of the first edition in English translation are even more uncommon, and signed copies in English translation are hen's teeth. A Fine copy, SIGNED BY CLAUDE SIMON. RARE.

        The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, by William Blake

      (San Francisco, 1989). Octavo. (14)pp. A stunning blend of calligraphy and art, written and illuminated by noted California scribe Thomas Ingmire on English handmade paper. With four large illustrations in gouache, gold leaf, gold powder, and Chinese ink. While Ingmire is known as a one of the foremost contemporary calligraphers, the design of this book is quite traditional: the text is calligraphed in a small Roman letter. Initial letters are executed in gold leaf on a ground of gouache. Gold-leaf letters and tiny triangles of different colors are sprinkled throughout the text, at times cascading down the page. The four paintings are more in the style that we associate with Ingmire, with bold strokes of color and ink. William Blake’s own passionate engravings are a clear influence. Ingmire chose to illuminate the passage from The Marriage of Heaven and Hell in which the narrator visits a print shop in Hell where a chaos of information, ideas, and words is received by men and gathered, orderly, into books. The subject is fitting, since this book was produced especially for the San Francisco Book Fair in 1989. The front cover is decorated with a scattering of letters. Extremely fine in full calf-skin parchment with ribbon ties.

        Birds of Australia Vol. V: Parrots, Pigeons, Cockatoos, Quail

      Melbourne: Hill House. New. 1989. Facsimile Edition. Hardback. Elephant Folio 0947352031 First limited facsimile edition thus. numbered 380 of 500. Original green Japanese Saifu cloth gilt. 92 fine coloured plates with accompanying text. Endpapers with a repeating pattern of BM library stamps. One of series of remarkably exact same-size facsimile of the original in the British Library, printed by offset lithography on acid-free matt art paper and hand-bound. The Hill House series contained the only authentic full-size facsimiles of the works of John Gould - this volume is one of the original printings and now out of print. An as-new copy, minimal wear to the front free endpaper. Publisher's blurb thus "They are not reproductions, because no camera was used in transferring the images from the B.M.(N.H.) originals. Indeed the originals are taken by Museum security courier to the repro-house in Singapore, where they are subjected to the preparation of new plates for printing on 5 and 6 colour offset presses. The paper used is 130 gsm mat art paper. As facsimiles, the books carry faithfully every spot, mark or stain of the originals. They also carry the original Museum Department of Zoology stamps, and librarian's annotations. From behind glass, the naked eye would be unable to distinguish the original from the facsimile, so accurate is the colour printing. Also as facsimiles, they are exactly the same size as the originals (Imperial Folio: 22" x 15"). Each volume is hand sewn, cased-in and bound between 4 mm. boards covered in special Japanese Saifu cloth, gold stamped on the spine, and with the gold Crown Cipher of the British Museum (Natural History) on the front, and blind embossed on the inner margin of the front boards. The end-papers are of special wood-free heavy grade paper, printed in a generated repetitive pattern of the Museum's Library stamps. The publisher has not intruded into the authenticity of the books, leaving the publication data printed only on the very last page at the end of the book block. Each copy is hand inspected by the printer's quality control officer, individually numbered on the inside front board. Thus, no two copies are exactly the same. Although initial volumes were printed in more than 500 copies, later production runs have not exceeded 300 for world-wide sale. This has been caused by a relative shortage of quality paper, together with the intensive hand-labour involved in their production."

While he smoldered, he wrote these zines and sent them, rather inexpensively, to zinesters. He was a good correspondent, writing long letters in blood-red pen, always signed SINcerely and PSYCHOpathically yours. & Later, zinesters began to realize that this self-proclaimed psychopath was much more than a mere faker or big talker. They started to think he was the FBI infiltration of the zine world. What a great idea, try to get leads on psychopaths via the zine world. He did get Mike Diana to submit some art for back cover and interiors. A lot of his clips came from gun magazines and what look like magazines for police and military. Whatever he was, these controversial zines are intriguing, and an important part of zine history. Frank disappeared just as suddenly as he appeared. A few videos of him are on the 'net." 9 Side stapled xerographic zines, with cardstock covers and a a couple of cardstock interior pages. Built to last. Readwear. Minor browning to covers. No. 5 has water stain on cover. No. 6 cover wrinkled. No. 8 has 1 pp. color xerox collage interior. Very good.
