This volume consists of 50 images (49 + "White Pine" frontis) with the last plate #50, [South Portage] lacking. Approved and signed in pencil in the white margin, the title and the artist name of each page. Each limited edition print has a heavy paper separator with gilt plate number printed on it and a separate tissue guard. All working materials and plates destroyed. Volume includes ephemera of a separate certificate of ownership.

All inside pages and plates inside are in fine condition. French marbled endpapers. All edges gilt. Gilt stamped medallion plate numbers. In 1989 M. Bernard Loates developed a unique lithographic process of screenless "tone" printing, known as the Bertone™ process. This new process was used in this volume.The Bertone™ process of solid screenless lithography process require as many as twenty three hand mixed colours, individually laid. Specially made light fast inks were applied using a single colour rotary press. Paper is M. Bernard Loates Stallion Vellum neutral pH 100% rag paper custom made and watermarked stock. Volume is housed in a purpose built fold over gray suede box with matching endpapers and blind stamped medallions on the covers. A.J.Casson and his wife Margaret chose 2 of their favourite Casson images of that year's work at the end of each year [thus thus called Casson's Cassons]. 2 volumes were created about 1989/1990 near the end of his life (died in 1992) each containing the identical 51 reproductions of these selected images. All were initialed by Mr. Casson and titled and identically numbered. These images were printed in editions of three hundred and some of Volume 1 & 2 (perhaps only 60 copies) were bound into a large coffee table book with full mahagony coloured leather binding and extensive text by Paul Duval. Each print was a plate in the book and had both a tissue in front of the print and cover page with a gold seal of Casson's head. Sadly, it seems many of these leather bound books were taken apart and the prints sold individually making the bound volume(s) quite rare now. 50 (of 51) signed and numbered lithographs, titles as follows: - White Pine - Old Mill Elora - Barns at Twelve Mile Lake - Whitney - Northern Barns - Lake of Two Rivers - Madawaska - Church of the St. Laurence O'Toole - Opeongo River - Cliffs Lake Maginaw - York River - Settler's Cabin - Fraser Bay - Still Morning - Palmer Rapids - Lumber Mill - Farm Near Vandorf - Lake Baptiste - McGarry Flats - Madawaska Valley - Long Lake - Bon Echo Rock - Lake Clarendon - Early Winter - Store in Bancroft - Whitefish Falls - Morning Light - Barns, McGarry Flats - Tiverton - Halfway Lake - Cloche Hills - Farm House - Near Quadrilla - Harvest Time - Old Barn - Conroy Marsh - Baptiste Lake - Combermere - Barry Bay - Old Maple - Kintail - Barn Near Quadrille - Lake Mazinaw - Boulter - Old Farm House - Frood Lake - Old Barn - Lake Willoughby - Barn on York River - Morning Mist - South Portage (missing) This book is on consignment with LDRB.

        A New Song, A Common Life, A Light in The Window, These High Green Hills, Out to Canaan, In This Mountain, At Home In Mitford New York Times Best Sellers

      About The Author:Born Janice Meredith Wilson in 1937, Jan Karon was raised on a farm near Lenoir, North Carolina. Jan knew at a very early age that she wanted to be a writer. She penned her first novel when she was 10 years old, the same year she won a short-story contest organized by the local high school.At 18, Jan began working as a receptionist for a Charlotte, N.C. advertising agency. She advanced in the company after leaving samples of her writing on the desk of her boss, who eventually noticed her talent. Jan went on to have a highly successful career in the field, winning awards for ad agencies from Charlotte to San Francisco. In time, she became a creative vice president at the high-profile McKinney & Silver. While there, she won the prestigious Stephen Kelly Award, with which the Magazine Publishers of America honor the year's best print campaign.During her years in advertising, Jan kept alive her childhood ambition to be an author. At the age of 50, she left her career in advertising and moved to Blowing Rock, North Carolina, to pursue that dream. After struggling—and failing—to get a novel underway, Jan awoke one night with a mental image of an Episcopal priest walking down a village street. She grew curious and started writing about a character she named Father Tim Kavanagh. Soon, Jan was publishing weekly installments about Father Tim in her local newspaper, The Blowing Rocket, which saw its circulation double as a result. "The installment plan certainly worked for Mr. Dickens", says Jan.The installments became Jan's first Mitford novel, At Home in Mitford. That book has since been reprinted more than eighty times and was nominated three times (1996, 1997, and 1998) for an ABBY (American Booksellers Book of the Year Award), which honors titles that bookstore owners most enjoy recommending to customers. A New Song won the Christy and Gold Medallion awards for outstanding contemporary fiction in 2000. A Common Life, In This Mountain, and Shepherd's Abiding have also won Gold Medallion awards. Since the publication of Out to Canaan, Jan's books have ridden high atop the New York Times bestseller list, frequently landing at #1.Jan has also published two Christmas-themed books based on the Mitford series, The Mitford Snowmen and Esther's Gift, as well as Jan Karon's Mitford Cookbook and Kitchen Reader. Other Mitford books include Patches of Godlight: A Compilation of Wit and Wisdomand A Continual Feast: Words of Comfort and Celebration. In addition, Jan has written two children's books, Miss Fannie's Hat andJeremy: The Tale of an Honest Bunny, and an illustrated book for all ages, The Trellis and the Seed. For readers interested in Cynthia's legendary cat books, Jan presents Violet Comes to Stay and Violet Goes to the Country.Jan says her character-driven work seeks to give readers a large, extended family to call their own.Jan's daughter, Candace Freeland, is a successful wedding photographer in Hawaii. You can see her work in the portrait of her mom on the back cover of Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good.Offered are 7 Books In Her Series.

        Song of the Open Road

      New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1990. Original goatskin. Some offsetting and a few scuffs/stains to slipcase; otherwise fine and fresh.. Aaron Siskind. Folio (435 x 370 mm; 17 x 14 ½ in.). 6 photogravures by Aaron Siskind, printed by Paul Taylor. Original quarter black Nigerian goatskin over evergreen silk-covered board, gilt-lettered on spine; publisher's cloth slipcase. LIMITED EDITION, number 435 of 550 copies signed by Siskind, printed by Clary Nelson at Renaissance Press. Laid-in is the Whitman/Siskind issue of the Limited Editions Club Letter, series 50, vol. 4, number 560, Sept. 1990. Siskind was long associated with the Abstract Expressionist group, and one of only a few photographers within that circle. He is also a major figure from the Black Mountain School: he met Harry Callahan while both taught there in 1950, and the two later joined the faculty of the IIT Institute of Design in Chicago (founded by László Moholy-Nagy as the New Bauhaus). In 1971 he followed Callahan (who had left in 1961) to teach for the rest of his life at the Rhode Island School of Design. "Through his use of form, emotional timbre, and iconography, Siskind's work reflects one man's struggle to understand his life in relation to the world. His imagery, on one level, is autobiographical, encompassing all the many political, social, sexual, aesthetic, and introspective observations of a long and complex life" (Carl Chiarenza). This is his last body of work, the images near his home in Providence, Rhode Island "of tar poured into the cracks of light-colored concrete roads, forming swirls and curves and parallel lines, cheerful or brooding markings on a gritty surface that is rendered almost microscopically and enlarged into a striking textural background for each of the six photographs."

        A Fragile Walk.

      London: Camberwell. 1990?. First Edition. Hardcover. Number 2 of only 5 copies printed. A tribute to rampant imagination and a belief in the beauty of textures, both natural and man-made. The entire book is printed on coarse, thick handmade papers in several colors. Illustrations are bold, colorful, childishly simple, childishly devious. Carvings in wood, lead, copper and fibre attach themselves throughout in a multi-media romp. The binding consists of a course linen spine with leather strapping joining two large slabs of stained pine on which nail heads, industrial staples and sculpting in various metals recall in a parody the bindings in precious metals and stones of medieval manuscripts. Les Bicknell has worked at Camberwell, "the only college in the UK providing specialist postgraduate study in Book Arts." His work is included in the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, The Rijksmuseum, and MOMA. Indeed, one copy of this title is in the Victoria and Albert Museum. A fine copy.; Quarto .

        Une guerre. Livre unique entièrement peint. Signé par l'artiste.

      Paris, chez l'artiste, 1 août 1990 - 28 février 1991. 23 x 18 cm, 11 f. format croissant. Peint à la main. Reliure de l'artiste, couv. peinte avec le titre, 11 ff. double coffret. Livre unique, entièrement peint à la main par Kate Van Houten (née en 1940). L'artiste américaine a préparé et cousu le papier de ce livre le 1er août 1990, jour de l'invasion du Koweit par l'Irak. Chaque page est peinte à la main et égrène les dates et lieux des batailles de la Guerre du Golfe. C'est par pur hasard que le dernier jour de l'opération Tempête du désert a correspondu à la dernière page du livre. Sommaire : Kate Van Houten (New-York, 1940) a étudié lhistoire et les langues étrangères aux USA, avant de poursuivre des études de sculpture à Milan. Sur la route du retour vers les Etats-Unis, elle passe par Paris, où elle décide de vivre. Elle apprend la gravure sur cuivre et sur zinc et la sérigraphie dans latelier 17 de Hayter. Kate Van Houten travaille à partir dune idée qui se traduit en geste, et prend souvent ses sculptures pour modèle de ses oeuvres sur papier, tandis que son travail sérigraphique se rapproche du paysage, avec ce sentiment des grands espaces américains qui lui manquent parfois.

        Love Seeds": Ivory micro-engraving.

      China Small case (14.5 cm, 5.6").. [ca. 1990?] Classical Chinese poetry in calligraphed format: This tiny rectangle of ivory (only about 4mm tall) is impossibly delicately etched with both the Chinese original and Fletcher's English translation of Wang Wei's Tang Dynasty-era poem "Xiang Si" (given here as "Love Seeds"). The xiang si bean (Abrus precatorius) is a Chinese symbol of love and longing; its small, shiny, red seeds were used as tokens of love, hence the reference in this poem: "The red bean grows in southern lands / With spring its slender tendrils twine / Gather for me some more, I pray / Of fond remembrance 'tis the sign." Additionally, both the Chinese and English texts are presented on a folded slip of paper, with additional commentary in Chinese characters only. The ivory is mounted within a black frame affixed to a small square of gold paper, on red velvet, and contained in a beautiful, eminently displayable case covered in olive-green silk with a woven Asian-inspired knotwork pattern in bronze and blue, decorated with a Chinese-printed label on the front cover. The case closes with a fabric loop and white-painted wooden toggle. Box as above, showing the faintest hint of rubbing to one corner, overall in excellent condition. Small compartment beneath presentation window seems to indicate a long slender item was at one point laid in, but it is difficult to say what that might have been.
