In London auch ist dieses Werk wohl entstanden, in jener Werkstatt, deren Symbol der Pfau war, der auf der Eingangsseite dargestellt ist. Der Abschluss des Hauptteils der Handschrift erfolgte vermutlich um 1260. Die Lambeth Apokalypse ist eines jener frühen Zeugnisse, die für eine ganze Epoche der franco-englischen Buchmalerei Maßstäbe setzte - in einer Zeit, in der die apokalyptischen Visionen wie in kaum einem anderen Land für Auftraggeber und Künstler besondere Aktualität gewonnen hatten. Die "Geheime Offenbarung", griechisch: Apokalypse, schrieb ein Judenchrist, "Johannes", wie er sich selbst nennt, Ende des 1. Jahrhunderts. Wohl zum Teil während seiner Gefangenschaft auf der Insel Patmos ist das Werk entstanden. Es wurzelt tief in den prophetischen Visionen des alten Testaments. Sein Anliegen war die Stärkung der zerstreuten frühchristlichen Gemeinden in Kleinasien im Kampf gegen Verfolgung und Tyrannei durch die römischen Machthaber und ihren Personenkult. In irdischen und überirdischen Visionen von poetischer Sprachgewalt entfaltet sich hier der Kampf zwischen den Mächten des Bösen und des von Gott bestimmten Guten, verkörpert in Messias, dem leidenden und siegreichen Christus. Am Ende steht der Sieg des Guten nach dem göttlichen Heilsplan: das letzte "Weltgericht" und die Vision vom himmlischen Jerusalem, der Stätte endgültiger Erlösung. Im 3. Jahrhundert n. Chr. fand die Apokalypse als letztes Buch des Neuen Testaments Eingang in den Kanon der Bibel. Immer wieder haben christliche Kommentatoren die apokalyptischen Symbole auf ihre Weise zu deuten versucht. So entstand gegen Ende des 11. Jahrhunderts, in einer Zeit starker politischer und existenzieller Bedrohungen, jener scholastische Apokalypse-Kommentar, der in England durch zahlreiche Handschriften in Auszügen überliefert wurde: Der Kommentar des ansonsten unbekannten Predigers "Berengaudus". Auch die Lambeth Apokalypse bringt Exzerpte aus diesem Kommentar, die hier erstmals transkribiert und ins Deutsche übersetzt sind. Die Bilder der Lambeth Apokalypse selbst, deren direkte Vorbilder, aus der Zeit um 1250, zum größten Teil vernichtet sind, zeigen eine erstaunliche Nähe zum Text der Apokalypse. Sie zeugen vom tradierten Verständnis der Symbolik und der jüdischen Schriften des Alten Testaments. Aber auch Anspielungen auf Zeitgenössisches finden zuweilen versteckte Darstellung. Diese Vielfalt der Aspekte, verbunden mit der hohen künstlerischen Qualität der Miniaturen im kräftig kolorierten Zeichenstil, gibt der Lambeth Apokalypse auch für die Nachwelt eine zentrale Bedeutung in der Überlieferung. Der zweispaltige kalligraphische Text der Apokalypse und der Berengaudus Kommentare in lateinischer Sprache wird von sparsam rot und blau kolorierten oder vergoldeten Initialen sowie feinlinigem

        Archive of Original Photographs and Autograph Letter Signed

      [c. 1990]. Sixteen original pieces of horror art (including one print and one set of contact sheets, in addition to photographs) by Potter, one of the most renowned contemporary fantasy artists. Potter uses traditional darkroom techniques to generate startling, often erotic, mind-bending, sensual images with both dramatic shock value and a dark sense of foreboding. His art has illustrated works by J.G. Ballard, Ray Bradbury, Stephen King, Poppy Z. Brite, Lucius Shepard, Ramsey Campbell, Clive Barker, William Gibson, William Burroughs and others. Poppy Z. Brite and Lydia Lunch are among his most frequent models. All of the photographs in this collection are from an unpublished book on his work. Most are 11" x 14", and most are signed by Potter. Together with an autograph letter signed by Potter to the would-be editor of the book, Stanley Wiater. Two pages, in which Potter weighs in on the idea of a dark fantasy children's book and works out the medium for an interview with Wiater. A fine collection from a work that was scuttled by the publisher and will never see light of day. Unique.

        Publisher's Archive of A Voice Crying in the Wilderness

      NY: St. Martin's. (1990). A Voice Crying in the Wilderness was ostensibly the first trade edition of the posthumously published 1989 Rydal Press limited edition Vox Clamantis in Deserto, but retitled and re-edited and with slightly different content, and with illustrations by Andrew Rush, A Voice Crying in the Wilderness is a separate Abbey "A" item. The archive includes: ? the first draft contract between St. Martin's Press and Rydal Press for this edition, with emendations. ? 81 page photocopied typescript, heavily copyedited. ? a clean set of galley sheets, approximately 66 pages. ? "master" galleys, heavily copyedited. ? "master" page proofs dated January 12, 1990, heavily copyedited. ? a second pass of the page proofs, undated, correcting errors caught in the first set, but still imperfect. ? a "master" set of revised proofs, dated January 26, 1990, also copyedited. ? eight additional "master" proof sheets correcting the errors remaining in the third set of page proofs. ? heavily copyedited copy of the page featuring "Other Works By Edward Abbey." ? blue proof of the title page. ? composition specification sheet. ? the mock up of the endpapers, featuring Andrew Rush art work. ? a letter from St. Martin's to Clark Kimball of The Rydal Press, enclosing "some production materials" from the book they are "quite pleased to be printing. The materials include a mockup of the title page and two separate mockups of a single text page, each featuring a "blind men and the elephant" illustration by Rush, one of which is inscribed by Rush: "AR for CK." ? an Andrew Rush biographical flyer, and ? an autograph letter signed by Rush to Clark Kimball, in part transmitting a drawing that Kimball liked (not included here, but perhaps an original of the "blind men" drawing mentioned above). The letter is in a self-made Rush notecard, and the drawing tipped to the front cover is present but detached. ¶ Some pages stapled or clipped; post-its throughout. Varying page sizes, from notecard to legal. Minor edge wear. A near fine archive all neatly assembled in a custom clamshell case, and showing the evolution of the book: the first draft contract gives the title as The West According to Abbey: Vox Clamantis in Deserto, which was never used. A post-it on a St. Martin's spec sheet seems to suggest that "An Isolated Voice" was under consideration as a title. Abbey finished the book only two weeks before he died, just 62 years old. Rydal published a limited edition, originally intended to be a signed limited edition; this first trade edition varies from the Rydal edition by virtue of the illustrations and also, according to the bibliographer, "deletions and additions," thus meriting its being identified as a separate "A" item from the Rydal edition. A unique archive of this compendium of writings by one of the most outspoken, influential and powerful advocates for wilderness in the American West.

The archive includes: • the first draft contract between St. Martin's Press and Rydal Press for this edition, with emendations. • 81 page photocopied typescript, heavily copyedited. • a clean set of galley sheets, approximately 66 pages. • "master" galleys, heavily copyedited. • "master" page proofs dated January 12, 1990, heavily copyedited. • a second pass of the page proofs, undated, correcting errors caught in the first set, but still imperfect. • a "master" set of revised proofs, dated January 26, 1990, also copyedited. • eight additional "master" proof sheets correcting the errors remaining in the third set of page proofs. • heavily copyedited copy of the page featuring "Other Works By Edward Abbey." • blue proof of the title page. • composition specification sheet. • the mock up of the endpapers, featuring Andrew Rush art work. • a letter from St. Martin's to Clark Kimball of The Rydal Press, enclosing "some production materials" from the book they are "quite pleased to be printing. The materials include a mockup of the title page and two separate mockups of a single text page, each featuring a "blind men and the elephant" illustration by Rush, one of which is inscribed by Rush: "AR for CK." • an Andrew Rush biographical flyer, and • an autograph letter signed by Rush to Clark Kimball, in part transmitting a drawing that Kimball liked (not included here, but perhaps an original of the "blind men" drawing mentioned above). The letter is in a self-made Rush notecard, and the drawing tipped to the front cover is present but detached. ¶ Some pages stapled or clipped; post-its throughout. Varying page sizes, from notecard to legal. Minor edge wear. A near fine archive all neatly assembled in a custom clamshell case, and showing the evolution of the book: the first draft contract gives the title as The West According to Abbey: Vox Clamantis in Deserto, which was never used. A post-it on a St. Martin's spec sheet seems to suggest that "An Isolated Voice" was under consideration as a title. Abbey finished the book only two weeks before he died, just 62 years old. Rydal published a limited edition, originally intended to be a signed limited edition; this first trade edition varies from the Rydal edition by virtue of the illustrations and also, according to the bibliographer, "deletions and additions," thus meriting its being identified as a separate "A" item from the Rydal edition. A unique archive of this compendium of writings by one of the most outspoken, influential and powerful advocates for wilderness in the American West.

        The Godfather / A Novel (SIGNED)

      J.P. Putnam's Sons, New York 1990 - Signed in green felt-tip directly (and somewhat diagonally) to the FFE: "For Ellie Peters / With many thanks for all her kindness / Mario Puzo." Signature is a good match for others found online. First name of addressee could also be "Elke." Puzo signed directly to the page, this is NOT a signed bookplate nor a "tipped-in page." DJ front flap priced $24.95 / $34.95 CAN. "Thirty-first printing" stated. Only date is 1969 copyright date; we ESTIMATE 1990 printing date based on the fact there is a small Doubleday Book Shop price tag to rear DJ panel and a "Doubleday Book Shops / An American Tradition for 80 Years . . . Books of All Publishers Since 1910" cardboard bookmark laid in. Bookmark lists 41 Doubleday shops (plus two "Traveldays" book shops), and we know there were 41 Doubleday shops when the chain was acquired by Barnes & Noble from Bertelsmann in 1990. (What we don't know is for how long thereafter B&N continued to operate those shops under the Doubleday name -- the $24.95 list price would have remained typical through about 1994.) Pages moderately age-toned to edges. Quarter-bound in black cloth; NO book-club deboss. 446 pp. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
