Sam Erenberg: "I made three hand-made, one-of-a-kind books from the material my late father, Arthur Erenberg, collected for his own professional career; he wrote the captions for the quasi-political newspaper cartoon, Grin and Bear It. The strip appeared in the Los Angeles times for many decades, as well as other newspapers across the country. "This material consists of his collages of old published jokes, as well as ones he wrote himself. On two books, The Alphabet Book and Words from L.A., I used gouache to paint the letters and words. The third book is made with other newspaper photographs and was a collaboration between Elena Siff and me.

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)

        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.

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.
