        In over 140 handwritten words, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis writes notes to her horse trainer about her beloved animals - "Will he be able to go to Va. to hunt once a week ? "I imagine he'd be friskier once he felt better ?"

      Chilmark, Massachusetts, [August 14, 1990]. 15.5" x 8". "Autograph Letter unsigned, 1 page, 8.5"" x 11"". Chilmark, Massachusetts, [August 14, 1990]. Matted and elegantly framed under glass to 15.5"" x 18"". To Scott, with original 6"" x 4"" envelope addressed by Mrs. Onassis to ""Scott Milne / Box 158 / Peapack, NJ 07977."" 25¢ stamp postmarked Buzzards Bay, MA, August 14, 1990. Return flap is engraved ""Chilmark / Massachusetts 02535."" Chilmark is a town on the island of Martha's Vineyard. On this page, horse trainer Scott Milne writes about three of Mrs. Onassis' horses: Frank, Toby, and Midnight. Mostly in the wide blank left margin, Mrs. Onassis has penned over 140 words beginning across the top ""Scott - good report - No Road Hacks in our Barn! It makes me laugh a bit at how competitive they all are!"" She continues about Toby: ""Why are Toby's feet so sore? Does he have shoes on? Will he be able to go to Va. to hunt once a week Oct 22 - Nov 20? I have to ask the Mellons if I can bring an extra horse, so let me know if he can or cant."" About Midnight, she pens, in part, ""I imagine he'd be friskier once he felt better - Sounds like hacking is fun!..."" Scott had told her, in part, ""Midnight ... spooks at everything, sticks, rocks all forms of wildlife everything. He is very competative he's more concerned with being first that where he is going ..."" The British Equestrian Federation defines ""Road Hack"" as ""Horses to enter ring at a walk. May be shown at a flat-footed walk with a reasonably loose rein, trot, strong trot, easy canter and hand gallop. Only 8 horses to gallop at one time. To be judged on performance, conformation, substance and manners."" Scott Milne's entire letter with Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis' entire reply can be read in full in the pictures above."

        Freedom in Exile: The Autobiography of the Dalai Lama (SIGNED COPY) with Promo Materials

      New York: Corneila & Michael Bessie Books (An Imprint of Harper & Row Publishers), 1990. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. SIGNED BY THE DALAI LAMA on the title page. 256 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Publishers three page press release and a black and white photo of the cover image (taken by Galen Rowell) laid in. Born in 1935 into a poor farming family in the northeastern province of Amdo, the present Dalai Lama was found to be the reincarnation of the thirteenth Dalai Lama who died in 1933. A series of auguries pointed a government search party to a monastery in Amdo and finally to the eighteen-month old child who identified people and things beloved by the deceased leader. The new Dalai Lama was removed from his family to Kumbum monastery where his lifelong religious studies began. At the age of for, the Dalai Lama traveled to the capital Lhasa, where the spiritual and political leadership of his people was conferred upon him. During the 1959 Tibetan uprising, the Dalai Lama fled to India, where he denounced the People's Republic of China (who by that time had plans to take over the Tibetan Autonomous Region) and established the nongovernmental Central Tibetan Administration (in Dharamsala). He has since traveled the world, advocating for the welfare of Tibetans, teaching Tibetan Buddhism and talking about the importance of compassion as the source of a happy life. Around the world, institutions face pressure from China not to accept him. He has spoken about the environment, economics, womens rights, non-violence, interfaith dialog, physics, astronomy, reproductive health, and sexuality, along with various Mahayana and Vajrayana topics. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket.

Original Hardcover - Folder in original slipcase. Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. Some very minor spotting. The illustrations excellent. Rare in this condition. Louis le Brocquy (10 November 1916 ?- 25 April 2012) was an Irish painter born in Dublin. His work received many accolades in a career that spanned some seventy years of creative practice. In 1956, he represented Ireland at the Venice Biennale, winning the Premio Acquisito Internationale (a once-off award when the event was acquired by the Nestle Corporation) with A Family (National Gallery of Ireland), subsequently included in the historic exhibition Fifty Years of Modern Art Brussels, World Fair 1958. The same year he married the Irish painter Anne Madden and left London to work in the French Midi. Le Brocquy is widely acclaimed for his evocative "Portrait Heads" of literary figures and fellow artists, which include William Butler Yeats, James Joyce, and his friends Samuel Beckett, Francis Bacon and Seamus Heaney, in recent years le Brocquy's early "Tinker" subjects and Grey period "Family" paintings, have attracted attention on the international marketplace placing le Brocquy within a very select group of British and Irish artists whose works have commanded prices in excess of £1 million during their lifetimes that include Lucian Freud, David Hockney, Frank Auerbach, and Francis Bacon. The artist's work is represented in numerous public collections from the Guggenheim, New York to the Tate Modern, London. In Ireland, he is honoured as the first and only painter to be included during his lifetime in the Permanent Irish Collection of the National Gallery of Ireland. Le Brocquy died on 25 April 2012 and was survived by his daughter Seyre from his first marriage (1938?-1948) to Jean Stoney, and his two grandsons John-Paul and David; his second wife Anne Madden, and their two sons, Pierre and Alexis (Wikipedia)

        Signifying Rappers FIRST EDITION OF SIGNIFYING RAPPERS; SIGNED BY DAVID FOSTER WALLACE

      New York: Ecco Press, 1990. First edition. Octavo, original wrappers as issued. Signed by David Foster Wallace. In near fine condition. Rare, especially signed by Foster Wallace. Living together in Cambridge in 1989, David Foster Wallace and longtime friend Mark Costello discovered that they shared "an uncomfortable, somewhat furtive, and distinctively white enthusiasm for a certain music called rap/hip-hop." The book they wrote together, set against the legendary Boston music scene, mapped the bipolarities of rap and pop, rebellion and acceptance, glitz and gangsterdom.

        Original Portrait Photograph - signed in green ink by Philip Glass.

      no place, no year (c.1990).. Original Black-and-White Photograph on archival paper. Excellent condition, mounted. Signed photographs by Glass are extremely rare !. Philip Morris Glass (born January 31, 1937) is an American composer. He is considered one of the most influential music makers of the late 20th century. His music is also often controversially described as minimal music, along with the work of the other "major minimalists" La Monte Young, Terry Riley and Steve Reich. Glass has distanced himself from the "minimalist" label, describing himself instead as a composer of "music with repetitive structures". Though his early mature music shares much with what is normally called "minimalist", he has since evolved stylistically. Currently, he describes himself as a "classicist", pointing out that he is trained in harmony and counterpoint and studied such composers as Franz Schubert, Johann Sebastian Bach and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart with Nadia Boulanger. Glass has founded his namesake musical group, Philip Glass Ensemble, with which he still performs on keyboards, as well as operas, musical theatre works, ten symphonies, eleven concertos, solo works, chamber music including string quartets and instrumental sonatas, and film scores. Three of his film scores have been nominated for Academy Awards. (Wikipedia)

        L'ombre d'un cri

      Gilles Couttet 1990 - Copy 42/49.Flexible tan box calf, Alcontara Suèdine endpapers. Box calf onlays in medium brown, dark brown, rust, and red. Japanese paper covered clamshell box with leather spine label. Bound by Christine Giard. 19 x 26 cm.Yves Peyré (b. 1952) is a French writer and librarian. He is the co-author, with H. George Fletcher, of Art Deco Bookbindings: The Work of Pierre Legrain and Rose Adler (Princeton University Press, 2004). His introductory essay begins:"A bookbinding is an ambiguous thing. It is physically attached to the book and thus relates to its meaning and typography: but it is also an image. Even more radically, is it a structure that rapidly becomes an object in its own right."Christine Giard has been studying and teaching bookbinding for over 35 years. Her formal academic background is in the sciences, but her true love has always been the arts: literature, drawing, painting, music, and nature photography. Christine discovered bookbinding while she was creating floral art, one of many ways she found to combine art with her love of nature.In bookbinding, Christine found the perfect combination of her interests and talents. She immerses herself completely in the combination of the precision required in binding structures of all kinds, the attributes of the (mostly) natural materials involved, the freedom to choose or create the materials she uses to realize her designs, and the opportunities to never, ever stop learning. Her passion and creativity is evident in her bindings. Christine’s design aesthetic leans toward minimalism, but her use of unexpected techniques and materials create a tightly controlled tension that makes her work vibrate with energy.Christine is trained in trade binding, design binding, restoration, conservation binding, paper-making, and several paper marbling and dyeing techniques. She loves that she can work in all of these areas and combine them as she chooses.Christine has studied with many reknowned bookbinding artists, including: Micheline de Bellefroid, Michel Richard, Hugo Peller, Edwin Heim, Vladimir Tchekeroul, Sun Evrard, Helene Jolis, Edgard Claes, and Anne Goy.

"Taken together, this quartet of novels has given its readers a wonderfully vivid portrait of one Harry (Rabbit) Angstrom . . . The books have also created a Kodachrome-sharp picture of American life . . . from the somnolent 50s . . . into the uncertainties of the 80s" (The New York Times).
