        Edwardian Tennis Match: Mixed Doubles

      Italy: circa 1990. Oil on copper. 8 x 15 1/2 inches. 22k gold leaf frame with brown crackle sides. 10 1/2 x 18 inches. 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 provided 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.

"The story of the Roan Stallion originated from a mysterious old cabin that Jeffers found in a roadless hollow in the hills, abandoned ever since its owner was killed by a stallion ... Though greeted with immediate acclaim, it also caused a furor in some quarters. In the story, the woman (who Jeffers makes one-fourth Indian) longs for a mystical union with a great stallion; a union that some critics chose to take literally. Despite the tempest it caused, the story has come to be known as the most intense and beautiful of all the Jeffers narratives" (Yolla Bolly Press).

        The Cairo Trilogy: Palace Walk, Palace of Desire, Sugar Street

      New York: Doubleday, 1990-1992. Uncorrected proofs of author's most well known work; a trilogy originally published in Egypt in the 1950's and which garnered him the Nobel Prize in literature decades later in 1988. Octavo, 3 volumes. Original illustrated wrappers. Each volume is signed by Mahfouz and in near fine condition. Books signed by Mahfouz are exceptionally rare as he left Egypt only twice during his life, each time only but for a short time. The Cairo Trilogy traces three generations of the family of patriarch Al-Sayyid Ahmad Abd al-Jawad, who rules his household with a strict hand while living a secret life of self-indulgence. The Trilogy is the achievement of a master storyteller reminiscent of Tolstoy. Laid into Palace Walk is the publicity from Doublday. "Naguib Mahfouz is not only a Hugo and a Dickens, but also a Galsworthy, a Mann, a Zola, and a Jules Romains." (Edward Said) Naguib Mahfouz's epic trilogy of colonial Egypt is the captivating story of a Muslim family in Cairo during Britain's occupation of Egypt. Al-Sayyid Ahmad Abd al-Jawad is a tyrannical patriarch that governs with a strict hand while secretly living in self-indulgence. His actions doom him to witness over the course of three generations the wane of his familial influence against the themes of rising modernity, and he witnesses against his will his offspring spawn followers of Communist, Muslim fundamentalist, and powerful politicians. The Cairo Trilogy is a compelling drama with remarkable insight that deserves the Nobel Prize it won in 1988.
