        Talking God: Original Painting for the Cover plus the signed first edition [2 Items]

      Harper & Row, 1989. Fine Book/Fine Framed Painting.

Also included is first trade edition of the book, signed by Tony Hillerman. The painting is framed and matted in a black wood frame that measures 12" x 16" high. The painting is done in acrylic on handmade paper and the visible size of the painting is 9 1/2" x 6" high. The framing includes the first edition cover. The first edition of "Talking God" is in fine condition, with a complete dustjacket in an archival dustjacket, signed by Tony Hillerman on the half-title page. Published in 1989, "Talking God" was the ninth crime fiction novel in the Joe Leaphorn / Jim Chee Navajo Tribal Police series by Tony Hillerman. Peter Thorpe's painting was used for the pre-print, or advanced reading copy of the book and used in advance advertising for the book. An editor at Harper & Row decided that he wanted to see some of Washington D.C. in the cover image, so Thorpe made slight revisions for the final first edition cover. The painting has not been examined outside of the frame. A beautiful set.

        [Letters and postcards from Elizabeth Bishop to Tamara Turner, with later correspondence between Turner and Robert Giroux]

      Seattle, London, Rio de Janeiro, San Francisco & New York, 1989. Three single-page letters and two postcards from Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Elizabeth Bishop to lesbian activist Tamara Turner, discussing professional and personal life; these are accompanied by two letters from publisher Robert Giroux to Turner discussing the provision of Turner's letters to a collection of Bishop's writings, and a note from Giroux's assistant to Turner. All are accompanied by the original envelopes with canceled stamps, mostly hand-addressed, with photocopies paperclipped to the originals. Very good, with expected wear and tearing to the envelopes. Bishop was on the faculty of the University of Washington in the 1960s where she met and befriended Tamara Turner, who later became a member of the Freedom Socialist Party and Radical Women and pressed those groups to become involved in the struggle for LGBTQ rights. After Bishop left the University for Harvard, then London and back to Rio (she spent 17 years in Brazil where she met her life-partner Lota), the two corresponded by telephone, letters and postcards. In 1989 Turner heard that Robert Giroux, publisher at FS & G and onetime publisher of Bishop's books at Harcourt, was planning a collection of the poet's correspondence ("One Art: Letters of Elizabeth Bishop"). Turner wrote to Giroux offering her collection of letters and postcards (which turned out to be far fewer than she recalled). These were accepted and sent in photocopy to the publisher. Tamara is mentioned in the acknowledgments of the book, which was published in 1994. The items included here are the originals along with the photocopies sent to Giroux and two photocopies of Turner's original correspondence with the publisher. The earliest correspondence is a postcard from London dated November 9, 1966 and is handwritten on a card that is a facsimile of Shelley's original draft of "Ode to the West Wind" which Bishop lightly derides and then goes on to recommend John Lennon's books which she has been reading. Next is another postcard, this from Rio dated January 18, 1967 with a typed message about the aborted trip to England and Europe that was cut short due to Lota's illness. This also has a short handwritten message surrounding the typed text and signed by Bishop. The third item is dated February 8, 1968 and is typewritten, as Bishop had broken her wrist. It is signed in a "decrepit" signature (her words) In an envelope mailed from her temporary address in San Francisco. The fourth item is a handwritten letter signed by Bishop as Elizabeth written on University Tower Hotel, Seattle letterhead; it includes the original pages of introductory notes written by the President of the University of Washington used to introduce her at the 11th Anniversary Theodore Roethke Poetry Reading. Her annotations and commentary are quite humorous. The fifth and final letter from Bishop to Turner is another postcard of the Boston historical site Faneuil Hall dated June 20, 1973. It is typed and signed in ink. She speaks of reading Chekhov's letters and tells of a footnote that refers to the name "Tamara." She also speaks of the oppressive heat and plans to attend a concert by Ella Fitzgerald at a racetrack. There are two typed letters signed from Giroux to Tamara Turner in original envelopes thanking her for the access to the correspondence and her own two letters to him containing memories of her friendship with the poet. Those letters are represented in photocopy. The final piece is a short note from Giroux's assistant apologizing that he is away and requesting copies of the correspondence to be considered for the planned book. Finally a b&w postcard photo of Bishop in Rio.

      Walther König, Köln 1989 - Large 4to hardcover with a blue linen spine and paper-covered red boards with black lettering inside an offset printed dust jacket. 206 pp. To which is added a die cut and folded poster 59.5 x 84 cm (23.4 x 33") in size printed in three colors on glossy stock on recto, a die cut 14.8 x 10.5 cm (5.9 x 4.125") announcement card offset printed in color on card stock on recto, and a 14.2 x 10.5 cm (5.6 x 4.125") invitation card offset printed on recto. Text in German, English, and French. A suite of four items all relating to Weiner's catalog raisonné surveying his artists' books and catalogs created 1968 - 1989. Weiner's writings, philosophies, and ideas are eloquently expressed through typography often relying on upper case Franklin Gothic and similar bold fonts. This is designed art in the highest regard. The dust jacket, poster, and announcement card feature the phrases "Books do furnish a room" and "Learn to read art"- both powerful reminders of the importance of books and art, and the role they play in our lives. Dust jacket with trace amounts of rubbing to spine in three places, including a 5.5" surface scratch on back. A near fine example of the book with a touch of soiling to top edge of text block and light bumps to lower tips. Very good example of the poster which is folded three times (likely as issued) showing trace amounts of toning and rubbing along fold lines. A fine example of the announcement card fine. Invitation very good with a relief along the top edge from at one point being paper clipped to something else. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The covers of the book are bright red cloth with black and gold decorations, and the slipcase is covered with black cloth. The book has a yellow satin bookmark sewn into the binding. The spine of the book is sunfaded to a light red. For some unknown reason, the slipcase of this book is too tight. I had an extremely difficult time removing the book from the slipcase, and have left it out because I am afraid that trying to force it back in might damage the book. The slipcase itself is in very good condition with a few scuffs and rubs. The book would be in fine condition, except for the faded spine and a small bit of soil on the top edge of the pages. I have no idea why it fits so tightly in the slipcase. I will leave the book outside the slipcase for shipping. More photos/scans available on request. .

        What Mad Pursuit: A Personal View of Scientific Discovery

      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 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). 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.

      Junk, Rara, pp. 150, 215; Kasparyan, Fauna of the USSR, Hymenoptera (1989) p. 92. Complete set of a standard hymenopterological work on ichneumon wasps by the German entomologist Otto Schmiedeknecht (1847-1936). The set consists of 6 volumes, including a register, and 25 supplement volumes, numbered Fasc. I-XXV. "... (at the turn of the 20th century) extensive work was carried out by ichneumonologists … All of the research done in this period has been recorded in Schmiedeknecht's (1902-1936) multivolume work, Opuscula ichneumonologica. In the division of the subfamily Tryphoninae, Schmiedeknecht followed Holmgren's system but treated the tribe Tryphonini within the limits set by Thomson … He included 13 genera comprising some 120 species of Palearctic (predominantly European) fauna" (Kasparyan).

        Black Book

      The only book created by American Post-conceptual artist Christopher Wool from his most important series of letter paintings. New York : Thea Westreich and Cologne : Gisella Capitain, 1989. Elephant folio (585 mm tall), black papered boards, title page, 17 screenprints, colophon. Limited to 350 copies signed and numbered by the artist (a further 8 artist's proofs also issued). A fine copy. Born in Boston in 1955, Christopher Wool is widely considered to be the most influential Post-conceptual visual artist of the twentieth century. In the 1980s Wool began composing his first word-based series of paintings, drawing inspiration from the stencilled labels painted on the sides of military vehicles, along with the urban graffiti found across New York. 'In the 1980s, Christopher Wool was doing a Neo-Pop sort of painting using commercial rollers to apply decorative patterns to white panels. One day he saw a new white truck violated by the spray-painted words "sex" and "luv." Mr. Wool made his own painting using those words and went on to make paintings with big, black stenciled letters saying things like "Run Dog Run" or "Sell the House, Sell the Car, Sell the Kids." The paintings captured the scary, euphoric mood of a high-flying period not unlike our own' (Ken Johnson, 'Art in Review: Christopher Wool', The New York Times, March 17, 2000). In Black Book, the artist's only book created from his most important series, Wool fills each page with a staccato-like series of stencilled black letters, forming words such as TERRORIST; PERSUADER; EXTREMIST; CELEBRITY. The letter forms are almost abstract, with words broken arbitrarily into groups of three letters equally spaced across three lines. As a sequence they become the syllables in an unremitting mantra. Wool formalises the rawness and immediacy of street graffiti and presents an assault of word-images which, through their minimalism, are at the same time benign and unsettling. Wool's letter art from the late 1980s, epitomised in Black Book, is some of the most sought after in the contemporary art world. These works are post-pop icons of the ongoing deconstruction of our sense of security, identity and familiar space. Retrospectives of the work of Christopher Wool have been held at the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Guggenheim Museum, the Art Institute of Chicago and numerous other major institutions.

        DAVID OLÈRE (1902-1985) A PAINTER IN THE SONDERKOMMANDO AT AUSCHWITZ (UN PEINTRE AU SONDERKOMMANDO À AUSCHWITZ)

      The Beate Klarsfeld Foundation, New York. 1989. Paperback. First edition. Original illustrated stiff wrappers, Square 8vo, 111 pages. Includes 125 drawings and paintings, many in color. “L'oeil du témoin. The eyes of a witness. ” Olère's “work has exceptional documentary value: there are no photos of what happened in the gas chambers and crematoria, and Olère was the only artist to have worked as a member of the Sonderkommando and survived. He was also the first witness to draw plans and cross-sections to explain how the crematoria worked…..David Olère (1902 - 1985) was a Polish-born French painter and sculptor best known for his explicit drawings and paintings based on his experiences as a Jewish Sonderkommando inmate at Auschwitz concentration camp during World War II…. On February 20, 1943, Olère was arrested by French police during a round up of Jews in Seine-et-Oise and placed in Drancy internment camp. On March 2, 1943, he was one of approximately 1, 000 Jews deported from Drancy to Auschwitz. From this transport, Olere was one of 119 people selected for work; the rest were gassed shortly after arrival. He was registered as prisoner 106144 and assigned to the Sonderkommando at Birkenau, the unit of prisoners forced to empty gas chambers and burn the bodies, firstly working in Bunker 2 and later in Crematorium III. In addition to these duties, he was also forced to work as an illustrator, writing and decorating letters for the SS…. Olère began to draw at Auschwitz during the last days of the camp, when the SS became less attentive….. Olère felt compelled to capture Auschwitz artistically to illustrate the fate of all those that did not survive. He sometimes depicts himself in his paintings as a ghostly witnessing face in the background. He exhibited his work at the State Museum of Les Invalides and the Grand Palais in Paris, at the Jewish Museum in New York City, at the Berkeley Museum, and in Chicago. He retired from being an artist in 1962, and died in 1985.” (Wikipedia 2014) Very Good+ Condition. An outstanding copy of a very important book, seldom seen for sale. (holo2-122-36A) xx .
