        Poems of W. B. Yeats. Selected and Introduced by Helen Vendler & with Six Etchings by Richard Diebenkorn.

      - San Francisco: Arion Press, 1990. 4to, xxv, 171, (1, colophon)pp. With six full-page etchings. Original quarter red morocco & dark green cloth, matching cloth & board slipcase. As new. Limited to 400 numbered copies signed by Diebenkorn, this copy complete with the prospectus and the extra pamphlet by Vendler "Yeats's Paradises". A beautifully designed and printed version of Yeats, perhaps the best of all and certainly the finest illustrated edition, with haunting etchings by the world-famous artist Diebenkorn. "In one of his last ambitious print series, done in 1990, he represented variations on the theme of a coat on a hanger. The late etchings, meant to illustrate a luxury edition book of poems by W.B. Yeats published by San Francisco's Arion Press, constitute a kind of valedictory gesture." (Diebenkorn Foundation). One of the scarcest of the Arion Press books, and surely one of the best.

        Mission To Mars.

      Grove Weidenfeld, New York 1990 - First edition. Octavo, original half cloth. Inscribed by the author on the half title page to Buzz and Lois Aldrin, "For Buzz and Lois with all good wishes- Mike Collins Dec. '90." An exceptional association, linking these two members of the Apollo 11 mission to the moon. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with some toning to the spine. Mission to Mars is a well-written account of Michael Collins' blueprint for a 22-month mission to Mars that would depart Earth in June 2004. Collins, who piloted the Apollo moon mission in 1969, envisions the deployment of two mother ships (one for backup), plus two landing craft, and speculates on the possibility of a joint Soviet-U.S. mission, or a multinational cooperative effort. Despite an estimated pricetag of $200 billion for his scenario, "we'd still be spending more on cigarettes if the cost is spread over 15 years," he calculates. Going to Mars, in his opinion, "would be the salvation" of NASA, giving the agency a unifying vision and sense of purpose, while providing alleged spiritual benefits to the populace.

        Reconstructed History

      New York: Thea Westreich & Galerie Gisela Capitain. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. LIMITED FIRST EDITION, SIGNED AND NUMBERED BY KELLEY (No. 94 of 250). "Such childish resentment is the cause of the defacements presented here. The inability to accept their lower position in the order of things provokes these 'artists' to drag back to the surface garbage long buried-to sully, vandalize, and render inoperable our pictures of health. Not that such a tactic is always bad." -- Mike Kelly, from Reconstructed History Composed of graffitied images from U.S. history textbooks done and reproduced by Kelley, Reconstructed History, as elucidated in Kelley's introduction, explores tarnishing the sacred and how we might reconstruct a vision of our nation's past through its vandalization. Editor John C. Welchman explains, "The images are not 'found' but made. The result is an elaborate hoax, one of the more vivid of Kelley's many efforts to perform, write, and represent through fictitious adopted personae." New York: Thea Westreich & Galerie Gisela Capitain, 1990. Octavo (12 1/2" x 9 1/2"), intricately decorated beige boards, illustrated vinyl dust jacket; containing 61 plates. Number 94 of an issued 250. RARE.

Cfr. Castleman ?A century of artists books?, p. 52: ?Another American, Sol LeWitt, devised an art from simple sets of instructions, so that large walls could be covered with drawings executed by others, simply following his orders. He, too, was interested in sets, this time sets of lines of certain lenghts, colors, and directions. Like Ruscha, he produced photographic booklets with sets of things, but his systematic examination of how the simplest form, a straight line, could be manipulated into complexity by multiplication, generated his most notable books?. ?Sol LeWitt (1928 - 2007), scultore statunitense. Dopo gli studi alla Syracuse University di New York, ha affiancato alla sua ricerca un'intensa attività didattica presso il Museum of Modern Art di New York. I suoi disegni e le sue strutture geometriche modulari sono tra le espressioni più autentiche della minimal art, di cui LeWitt ha sviluppato il polo costruttivo. Sue opere sono conservate nei maggiori musei d'arte moderna?, così Diz. Treccani.it. Esemplare con firma autografa di Lewitt al frontespizio. Ben conservato.

        Diebold Schillings Spiezer Bilderchronik.

      Luzern, Faksimile Verlag 1990. - Folio. 808 S. (Faksimile) u. XI, 599 S. (Kommentarbd.). Mit 344 meist ganzs., originalgetreu reproduzierten Bildern. Weisser, blindgepr. Orig.-Pergamentbd. mit geprägten Metallapplikationen und 2 Schliessen sowie Orig.-Halbpergamentbd. mit Rückenschild (etwas fleckig). Faksimile-Ausgabe der Handschrift Mss. hist. helv. I. 16 der Burgerbibiliothek Bern. - Mit Kommentarband, hrsg. von Hans Haeberli und Christoph von Steiger. - Die hervorragenden Bilder machen vorliegende Chronik zum künstlerisch wertvollsten Band seines gesamten Schaffens. Dieses letzte Werk Schillings entstand als privates Auftragswerk für einen Berner Beamten und behandelt die Chronik der Stadt Bern von ihren Anfängen bis ins Jahr 1465. Der einzigartige Bilderschmuck in schwungvollen Federzeichnungen zeugt von der gestalterischen und erzählerischen Kraft des Buchmalers. Der einzigartige Bilderschmuck macht Schillings letzte Bilderchronik zur Krönung seines umfangreichen Werkes als Geschichtsschreiber. Die schwungvollen Federzeichnungen, welche in vielerlei Abstufungen mit Lasurfarben koloriert sind, haben sich weitgehend von der Kompositionsweise früherer Bilderchroniken gelöst. Auffällig ist die gestalterische Kraft, mit der es der Zeichner versteht, das Geschehen wirkungsvoll zu inszenieren, Haupt- und Nebenhandlungen aufeinander abzustimmen und Vorder- und Hintergrund miteinander zu verbinden. Oft wird manchmal nur durch ein Fenster im Hintergrund der bezaubernde Ausblick auf eine entfernte Landschaft gewährt, der den dramatischen Ereignissen im Vordergrund einen lyrischen Gegenpol entgegensetzt. Dem Text entsprechend nimmt die Schilderung des Kriegsgeschehens auch bei den Chronikbildern breiten Raum ein. Mittelpunkt der Chronikbilder sind stets die handelnden Personen, die oft zu zwei einander gegenüberstehenden Gruppen verwoben sind. Proportionen und Körperhaltung der Figuren zeugen von der bemerkenswerten Fähigkeit des Künstlers, die menschliche Anatomie korrekt wiederzugeben. Die Bildausstattung wurde speziell auf den Auftraggeber Rudolf von Erlach zugeschnitten. Ruhm und Ehre der Familie sollten zum Ausdruck kommen und für Familie und Nachwelt festgehalten werden. - Tadellos sauberes Exemplar. Lang de

        Le Desert de Retz

      1990. [LE ROUGE, George Louis]. Le Désert de Retz: Le Jardin Pittoresque de Monsieur de Monville; A Late Eighteenth-Century French Folly Garden. By Diana Ketcham. Preface by Olivier Choppin de Janvry. Text in English and French. 120 pp. Illustrated with historical views of the park, a facsimile of 26 engravings by Le Rouge issued in 1785, and 32 new photographs of the garden sites by Michael Kenna. Oblong folio, 255 x 405 mm, bound in original blue cloth. San Francisco: The Arion Press, 1990. |~||~||~||~||~| The de Monville estate, known as the Désert de Retz, was constructed as a gigantic broken column, an eighteenth-century fantasy meant to reveal the essence of architecture in ruins. This "magic realm" served to influence Thomas Jefferson, King Gustavus of Sweden, Marie Antoinette, and later, the Surrealists. This handsomely printed book presents Monsieur de Monville's fanciful landscape garden and its architectural monuments in a pleasing deluxe format.

        A Fragile Walk.

      Camberwell, London 1990 - 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 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Edwardian Golfer

      Italy, 1990. Original oil painting on copper. 22k gold leaf frame with brown crackle panel. Marco Ceri lives in Northern Italy where he paints in oil on copper pictures in a very specific genre all his own. They are paintings of English people engaged at polo, golf or tennis during the Edwardian era. A great deal of research provides a high degree of accuracy to every aspect of these scenes including, of course, the attire and sports equipment, but even the postures and demeanors of the participants. The accuracy of the elements however does not intrude on the overall delight expressed in these tableaux. The artist keeps a low profile, enjoying his virtual anonymity. He considers himself a craftsman, who by limiting his sphere of activity, brings that craft closer and closer to perfection. This work bears the alternate signature of the artist: "M.V.", which reflects the use of his middle initial.
