        DIE LAMBETH APOKALYPSE

      Stuttgart: Müller & Schindler, 1990. No. 23 OF 250 SPECIAL COPIES in the deluxe binding (apparently apart from a smaller version of this same facsimile issued by the same publisher in a run of 550 copies without the recessed enamel cover) . Hardcover. Reproducing Two Magnificent Works of Art,Including a 13th Century Limoges Book Cover. 290 x 210 mm (11 1/2 x 8 1/4"). Text:; Box: 330 x 245 mm. (13 x 9 3/4"). Two volumes (including commentary volume in German). Commentary by Ruth Mettler, Nigel Morgan, and Michelle Brown. No. 23 OF 250 SPECIAL COPIES in the deluxe binding (apparently apart from a smaller version of this same facsimile issued by the same publisher in a run of 550 copies without the recessed enamel cover). The facsimile volume in maroon calf over bevelled boards, a sterling silver facsimile seal of the archbishop of Canterbury attached to the center of the front board, brass clasps and four brass corner guards, double raised bands; the companion volume in matching leather; both in a very sturdy leatherette box lined with cork, the commentary volume in the bottom of the box, a cork divider between it and the facsimile on top of it, another cork divider atop the facsimile, a leatherette lid with a wide handle, and, on top of it all, A STUNNING DETACHABLE REPRODUCTION IN GOLD AND ENAMEL OF A MEDIEVAL BOOK COVER DEPICTING CHRIST IN MAJESTY, the main part of the image within a sunken panel, and the whole attached with gold nails to a wood backing. With full-page frontispiece depiciting a Benedictine scribe being directed by the Virgin Mary and a talkative Christ Child, first page with eight-line historiated initial featuring elaborate extension into lower margin inhabited by a peacock, 78 half-page miniatures of scenes from Revelations illuminated with 23-karat gold, 28 half-page miniatures (two per page) depicting Christian legends, and 14 full-page miniatures of the Virgin Mary, Christ, and various saints. With color prospectus and publisher's certificate of authenticity laid in. A couple of faint scratches to covers of commentary volume, otherwise a virtually mint copy. This is a most remarkable large-format facsimile in that it reproduces two magnificent works of art--the Lambeth Apocalypse and a memorable 13th century Limoges book cover. The Lambeth Apocalypse dates to the 13th century, when Medieval English book illustration was at its peak. The subtle colors (predominantly pink, mint green, blue, and a dull orange), are very well reproduced, and the use of actual gold leaf on many of the images enhances the verisimilitude. The figures are graceful and attenuated, the folds of the garments are crisp, and the monsters and demons are fittingly gruesome. In addition to illustrations of John's mystic revelations, the manuscript includes some striking full-page images, among them the Virgin and Child, the Crucifixion, the risen Christ with Mary Magdalene, the martyrdom of Saint Sebastian, and St. Catherine of Alexandria. Currently in the Victoria and Albert Museum, our gold and enamel book covering beautifully recreates a French cover produced in Limoges around the year 1300. Its image depicts Christ in Majesty, much as he was sculpted over church doors of the period, enthroned as king of heaven and surrounded by the four winged creatures, as described in the Apocalypse. The original manuscript was commissioned by Lady Eleanor De Quincy, Countess of Winchester (ca.1230-74), who is probably the woman kneeling at the feet of the Virigin in one of the full-page miniatures. The peacock on the first page of text may indicate that the work was done in a London workshop known to use that signature. The book was later owned by Elizabethan book collector, John, Lord Lumley (1534-1609) before passing into the Royal Library and becoming part of the founding collection of the Archbishop of Canterbury's library at Lambeth Palace. There is a great deal of hand work involved in the text and especially the cover here, and the final achievement represents facsimile production of extraordinary quality.

Boorstin (former Librarian of Congress)...." Handsome full signature

        Phantom Lady Farbradierung und Aquatinta in 3 Farbe, handsigniert

      1990 - Ernst Fuchs, Phantom-Lady, Farbradierung und Aquatinta in 3 Farben, 1990, handsigniert, nummeriert 47/125, Auflage: 125 + LXV Verleger: La Edizioni BORA Blattgröße: 80 x 60 cm Motivgröße: 58 x 42 cm Ernst Fuchs (1930 in Wien) österreichischer Maler, Architekt, Grafiker und Musiker, gilt als einer der Gründer der Wiener Schule des Phantastischen Realismus. Fuchs wurde als einziges Kind von Maximilian und Leopoldine Fuchs in Wien geboren. Als sein Großvater Siegmund in die USA und sein Vater nach dem &#132;Anschluss&#147; Österreichs 1938/39 nach Shanghai emigrieren mussten, wurde er nach antisemitischen Anfeindungen 1942 römisch-katholisch getauft. Ab etwa 1942 erhielt er erste Unterweisungen im Zeichnen und Malen durch den Maler und Restaurator Alois Schiemann. Bis zum fünfzehnten Lebensjahr erhielt er Unterricht in Bildhauerei und Malerei bei Emmy Steinböck und Fritz Fröhlich an der Malschule St. Anna in Wien.Von 1946 bis 1950 studierte er an der Akademie der bildenden Künste in Wien, zuerst unter Robin Andersen, dann unter Albert Gütersloh. erste Einzelausstellung 1949 in Paris, wohin er 1950 übersiedelte. 1957 hielt er sich längere Zeit im Dormitio-Kloster am Berg Zion (Israel) auf und beschäftigte sich mit Ikonenmalerei. 1962 kehrte er nach Wien zurück, wo er eine Professur erhielt. Er zählt zusammen mit Wolfgang Hutter, Arik Brauer, Rudolf Hausner und Anton Lehmden zu den Gründern der Wiener Schule des Phantastischen Realismus. 1972 erwarb er die Otto-Wagner-Villa und begann dort mit der Brunnenanlage Nymphäum Omega mit der Verwirklichung seiner architektonischen Vorstellungen. Das renovierte Gebäude dient heute als &#132;Privatmuseum Ernst Fuchs&#147; und Veranstaltungsort. Der Maler lebt und arbeitet seit 1988 in Monaco.Moderne Werke von Fuchs, die bis in die Gegenwart auf biblische, mystische oder astrologische Motive gründen, waren seit den 1980er Jahren auf Ausstellungen in Österreich, Deutschland, Italien, Japan, Russland und weiteren Ländern zu sehen.In den 1990er-Jahren war Fuchs verstärkt als künstlerischer Gestalter von Bauwerken tätig (St.-Jakob-Kirche in Thal bei Graz, Hotelanlage in St. Veit an der Glan), wobei seine phantastische Architektur besonders durch die Verwendung üppiger Ornamentik und kräftiger Farben auffiel.Fuchs singt und spielt mystisch inspirierte Schallplatten ein, u. a. die Alben &#132;Von Jahwe&#147; (Gesänge über das Tetragramm JHWH) und &#132;Via Dolorosa&#147;, und arbeitet immer wieder auch mit Musikern zusammen, wo er ebenfalls als Sänger seine spirituellen Motive umsetzt.

        [FINAL TYPESCRIPT FOR HIS NOVEL "BALOOK"]

      np np: np, 1990. First Edition. Very Good +. 8.5" x 11" typescript (computer word-processor-generated, almost certainly daisy wheel) on perforated printer paper. Minor creasing to some pages. A bit of toning overall. Remnants of a smoky smell (both Anthony and his wife were smokers). Two small corrections to the text, presumably by Anthony, else clean throughout. Very good plus to near fine. [2], 237, [1]. The complete typescript and author&#39;s note for Anthony&#39;s 1990 young-adult sci-fi novel BALOOK, the publisher&#39;s copy sent by Anthony to his publisher Underwood-Miller who brought the novel out in 1990. Published the same year as Michael Crichton&#39;s JURASSIC PARK, Anthony&#39;s story also revolves around the genetic resurrection of an extinct dinosaur. A coming-of-age story of sorts comparing the maturation of the Baluchitherium "Balook" with that of his young friend Thor. Perhaps most noteworthy, however, for Anthony&#39;s "Author&#39;s Note" which closes the book (as well as the manuscript here). It recounts BALOOK&#39;s long and circuitous road to publication and remains one of Anthony most concentrated and sustained pieces on the science fiction genre, his working methods, and the writer&#39;s craft. It ends, appropriately enough, thusly: "I mentioned word processing programs. I had discovered one called Finalword that promised to be even better for me than my prior ones [...] But it was complex, and not perfectly adapted to me system or my Dvorak keyboard; it would be a monster to break in. So I decided to use [...] a short novel to break it in; once I have novelized a thing, I really understand it [...] The available novel was Balook." In other words, THIS typescript.
