"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).

        Weiblicher Akt in Rückenansicht.

      - Bleistift, auf Velin, rechts oben datiert „23 Juny 41". 32,4:18,1 cm. Literatur: I. Koszinowski/V. Leuschner, Marburg 1990, I 37. Obwohl der Akt nach rechts gewendet dargestellt ist, handelt es sich bei unserem Blatt vermutlich um eine Vorstudie zu einer Illustration zu „Dornröschen, die Königin im Bade, um 1840" (op. cit. I 35, I 36). Der vor allem als Radierer tätige Ludwig Emil Grimm war 1804-1808 Schüler der Kasseler Akademie bei Gottlieb Kobold (1769-1809), Andreas Range (1762-1828) und Ernst Friedrich Ferdinand Robert (1763-1843). Durch seine Brüder Jacob und Wilhelm Grimm wurde er mit Clemens Brentano (1778-1842) und Achim von Arnim (1781-1831) bekannt, mit denen er zusammenarbeitete. Vermutlich 1807 lernte Grimm Bettine Brentano (1785-1859) kennen, die er mehrfach porträtierte. In November 1808 zog er nach Landshut zu Brentano und dessen Schwager Friedrich Carl von Savigny. Auf ihre Vermittlung hin ging er nach München und erlernte die Technik des Kupferstechens bei Carl Hess (1755-1828). Zugleich studierte er an der Münchner Akademie unter A. Seidl (1760-1834) – wegen der Teilnahme an den Freiheitskriegen 1814 mußte er allerdings sein Studium unterbrechen. Mit dem Frankfurter Bankier Georg Brentano reiste er im Frühjahr 1816 nach Italien, wo er zwei Monate blieb – zahlreiche Skizzen zeugen von dieser Reise. 1817 kehrte er nach Kassel zurück. 1824 reiste Grimm zum ersten Mal nach Willingshausen und wurde zum Mitbegründer der Willingshäuser Malerkolonie, eine der ältesten Malerkolonien Deutschlands. 1832 folgte die Berufung als Lehrer an die Kasseler Kunstakademie.

        Original Portrait Photograph - signed in green ink by Philip Glass

      no place. Excellent condition, mounted. Signed photographs by Glass are extremely rare !. 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)

        Jurassic Park [Signed Advance Reader's Copy]

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1990. First edition. Wrappers. Fine. A Near Fine to Fine copy of the Advance Reader's Edition for the first edition, first printing of what perhaps is the best-known of Michael Crichton's novels, SIGNED BY MICHAEL CRICHTON on the title page. The book established the foundation for the noted film series which began with the 1993 film of the same name starring Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Richard Attenborough, Ariana Richards, Samuel L. Jackson, Wayne Knight, and others. Even prior to the book's publication, major film studios were jockeying to acquire film rights to the novel and the film became the most successful film as of its time. Notably, while Crichton had never written a sequel to any of his prior novels, the film was so successful that Director Steven Spielberg strongly encouraged Crichton to write a sequel, leading to further films The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997 -- loosely based on Crichton's 1995 novel "The Lost World"), Jurassic Park III (2001 -- not based on any book but with scenes taken from Crichton's first two Jurassic novels), and Jurassic World (2015 -- also not based on any book but continuing the basic Jurassic theme and establishing a record as the biggest global opener of all time). This uncommon Advance Reader's Edition is in Near Fine to Fine condition with only light marking to the page block's closed edges and some tiny pushing to the front wrapper's outer corners. The Advance Reader's Edition of this notable novel is not at all common to the market and copies signed by Michael Crichton are as scarce as hen's teeth. A Fine copy of the QUITE SCARCE ADVANCE READER'S COPY FOR THE NOVEL WHICH ESTABLISHED THE JURASSIC FRANCHISE, SIGNED BY MICHAEL CRICHTON. QUITE SCARCE INDEED.

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)

        Encyclopédie philosophique universelle: Les Notions philosophiques: Dictionnaire en deux volumes

      Presses Universitaires de France -PUF, 1990. in4 Relié sous coffret. La forme du dictionnaire présente le danger de fossiliser la philosophie en une langue mythique, dont les puristes pourraient discuter sans fin le bon emploi. Nous avons choisi un autre parti. S'il est nécessaire de passer par le lexique pour produire ou décoder un message de type philosophique, les formes (mots ou syntagmes), qui constituent les entrées de ce dictionnaire, sont conçues comme les étiquettes les plus commodes pour servir d'adresse à des textes, à des discussions, à des problèmes ou à des connaissances. Elles tiennent leur valeur notionnelle, d'une part de ce qu'elles indiquent un contenu, et, d'autre part, de ce qu'elles sont, chacune en son genre, les nœuds d'un système de renvoi. Dans ces conditions, il était possible d'étendre le système des adresses à des unités lexicales appartenant à d'autres langues que le français. En présentant cette solution inédite, nous n'avions nulle part à assumer quelque synonymie trompeuse, mais simplement à connecter des adresses, afin d'assurer des renvois qui, du grec à quelque langue inconnue d'une culture seulement orale, laissent le lecteur libre de s'interroger sur le chemin qu'on l'invite à parcourir. L'une des tâches séculaires de la philosophie est de surmonter ce que Locke nommait l'abus des mots; le dictionnaire des notions s'efforce de l'accomplir en présentant une technologie des réseaux sémantiques.

Burroughs slightly zonked, his dooryard garden wall, Villa Muniria, Tanger, Morocco: ?Who are you an agent for?? He was engaged in ?tracing back along the word-lines?, his cut-up method of language-analysis, inquiring back to sources of my conditioning, perhaps liberal professor Lionel Trilling, perhaps ?a trust of giant insects from another galaxy? conspiring to make Nova conditions on the plan- et, exterminate the human animal, another life-form move in on the turf, virus invasion. Corso, Tim Leary, & Peter Orlovsky were visiting, 1961.? Similar photo with commentary by Ginsburg sold for over $5000 at auction in 2007.

Art+Positive fights homophobia, aidsphobia and censorship in the arts." [Quoted for the last page].An affinity group of ACT-UP, Art+Positive was formed in 1989 in response to the artist Mark Kostabi's homophobic attack on the gay community and people with Aids in the pages of Vanity Fair. Within the article, Kostabi voiced the opinion that "These museum curators, that are for the most part homosexual, have controlled the art world in the eighties. Now they're all dying of AIDS, and although I think its sad, I know its for the better. Because homosexual men are not actively participating in the perpetuation of human life." Founded by Aldo Hernandez, Hunter Reynolds, and Bill Dobbs, the group organized in protest of Kostabi's remarks, the Helm's Amendment and instances of homophobia and AIDS phobia in the art world.
