        Vishnu Crew Stews Vindaloo Anew

      New York: Purgatory Pie Press, 1990. Hard Cover. Fine. Hard Cover. Number 61 of 74 copies although according to the press, the full edition was not produced as their supply of perforated aluminum ran out. This copy is signed by the author, designer, and printer on stickers, which are affixed to the interior of the case. Created as a homage to the Hindu god Vishnu who is typically depicted as a blue being with four arms and occasionally with four heads. This is a sculptural book construction with moveable parts made from aluminum, brass, paper, felt, and steel. Four miniature book structures in the shapes of small heads are affixed to a large rotating circular wheel. A humanoid body which is hinged to the wheel can be positioned beneath any of the four heads. Each book is cleverly attached to the base with a screw and washer, which also serve as the eyeballs for each head. The covers of each book are metal with accordioned paper pages printed in green and orange with a verse and linocut illustrations. The text reads like a cryptic mantra: "Ganges seers fear hearing gears," "Man can't do what Katman don't," "derrick din decks Delhi duck," and "Ladakh crocs mock clox' tox." The wheel fits snugly within a repurposed film reel canister, which has been fitted with felt and adorned with labels and stickers from the press. One of the stickers bears the signature of the author in pencil. Letterpress printed on a Vandercook press on Khadi Jute Indian handmade paper. Elemental orchestration by Esther K. Smith. Linocuts by Dikko Faust. An intriguing construction that begs to be handled. In fine condition. The film canister is lightly worn with a few scuff marks. Unpaginated. ARTB/120512.

        THE MAN WHO PLANTED TREES with archive of engravings from the book

      Chelsea, VT: Chelsea Green Publishing, (1990). Hardcover. New, still in package, shrinkwrapped. Occasional minor smudging to the art. Michael McCurdy. Specially packaged presentation including the book and an audio cassette with music composed and performed by the Paul Winter Consort and narration by Robert J. Lurtsema, both encased in a box with illustrations and text. The book is illustrated with wood engravings by Michael McCurdy. In addition to the package as it was sold in stores, there are also two large (13" x 18") illustrated advertising posters for the book, both SIGNED in pencil by the artist, as well as a collection of thirty wood engravings from the book printed on various types of paper and in various sizes, mostly 11" x 15" with many of them SIGNED in pencil by the artist and often titled with a limitation number usually one of 50 or 100 copies. The addition of the engravings and posters allows for a wonderful documentation and presentation of this title. Originally published in 1954, this story has grown in popularity along with the ecology movement. From the box: "The MAN WHO PLANTED TREES is the story of Elzeard Bouffier, a man of great simplicity and determination. Bouffier, having lost his wife and son, retreats to a remote and desolate part of France. 'It was his opinion that this land was dying for want of trees.' So, alone with his dog and his sheep, he commences his life work--the steadfast planting of one hundred acorns each day. Over the course of 30 years, laboring in peace, without interruption, and in complete anonymity, Bouffier transforms the landscape. Once desiccated, ravaged by relentless winds, and forsaken by people, the region is brought back to life by Bouffier's trees.... Paul Winter and Earth Music Productions bring this powerful eco-fable to life with music especially composed and performed by members of the Consort. Narrated by Robert J. Lurtsema, host and executive producer of one of public radio's most popular and innovative music programs, WGBH's 'Morning Pro Musica,' this special recording captures Elzeard Bouffier's determination and magnificent generosity of spirit in completing 'a work worthy of God.' More than anything, the narration and music reinforce the Story's message of hope.

        Casson's Cassons Volume I and II

      Abbot Mill Press [0-921190-14-2] 1990, 1st limited edition. () Volume I(34),(4),(100),(1); volume II, (32), (100),(1). Near fine. Square Folio. (38 X 34 X 7 cm.) Full leather binding with blind stamped medallion in the middle of the front board and blind titling on the spine. French marbled endpapers. All edges gilt. Gilt stamped medallion plate numbers. Each illustration has a separate tissue guard and heavy paper separator. Stab stitched and sewn on linen tape. Fine as new copies of each volume. Each volume is housed in a purpose built fold over suede box with matching endpapers and blind stamped medallions on the covers. Each volume includes a separate certificate of ownership and has the original packaging material. Limted to 300 copies and 60 Artist's proof's this being AP18. Each volume consists of 51 images produced by the Bertone lithographic process, hand numbered, titled and initialed by A.J. Casson, for a total of 102 images in total. The introduction indicates the images chosen were from Casson's private collection and the second volume was only being considered when the first was published. The whole project was inspired by Bernard Loates. It seems the set is very scarce in the market place, this being the only set I have encountered since it was published 20 years ago. It seems many of the sets were broken up and each print sold individually in the 1990's..

        The General in His Labyrinth [Signed Uncorrected Proof]

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1990. First edition. Wrappers. Fine. A Fine copy of the American Uncorrected Proof, INSCRIBED, SIGNED AND DATED BY GABRIEL GARCIA MARQUEZ on the half-title as follows: " “Mientras nos vemos / en Los Angeles, un / abriro par Ted. / Gabriel / [underscore] / 92”. (Translated to English, the inscription reads: In remembrance of our travels in Los Angeles, for Ted.”) Although we have not identified "Ted", the nature of the inscription indicates that this is an Association Copy at some level as the two men clearly spent time together in Los Angeles. One of the 20th Century's most significant authors, Gabriel Garcia Marquez won the 1972 Neustadt International Prize for Literature --- a prestigious international Literary Prize given in recognition of outstanding achievement in poetry, fiction, or drama and conferred solely on the basis of literary merit, being awarded for a body of work rather than for a single one, and frequently called the "American Nobel". A number of Authors who have won the Neustadt Prize have gone on to win the Nobel Prize in Literature, including Marquez, Czeslaw Milosz, Octavio Paz, and Tomas Tranströmer. Marquez won the 1982 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his novels and short stories, in which the fantastic and the realistic are combined in a richly composed world of imagination, reflecting a continent's life and conflicts", making him the first Colombian, and fourth Latin American, to win the Prize. A fictional account of Simon Bolivar's last days, "The General in his Labyrinth" traces Bolivar's final journey, a trip from Bogotá to Columbia's Caribbean coast in his attempt to leave South America for exile in Europe. This is a Fine copy of the Uncorrected Proof with the Publisher's Review letter stapled to the front wrapper's verso. Copies of this Uncorrected Proof are not terribly common, signed copies are, of course, even more scarce, and signed copies in a condition as nice as is this copy are scarce indeed. A FINE COPY OF THE UNCORRECTED PROOF, SIGNED BY GABRIEL GARCIA MARQUEZ. QUITE SCARCE.

      Roth & Sauter, Denges 1990. - Carré de pure soie crêpe à bords faufilés 90 x 90, imprimé en cinq couleurs, sous triptyque imprimé bicolore et étui coulissant protecteur blanc 48 x 22.Éditionô combien originale. Parmi 620 exemplaires L'un des 420 présumés complets de tous ses éléments, le nôtre possédant de surcroît la gouache originale du gallinacé figurant sur la couverture. cocorico ! De la longue et quelque peu confuse histoire de la confection de cet objet, nous retiendrons, ayant en mains propres le dossier d'archives, qu'il en résulta certaines tensions et déceptions des ayant-droits; l'épouse de l'artiste en effet n'a pas été consultée donc n'a pu signer un bon à tirer sur le texte fautif. Une coq.uille ôte tout son sens et son ironie à un vers : "Mais enté Coq roi le Cuistot." au lieu de "Mais évite Coq roi.". Divers courrier de la veuve expriment d'autres regrets, celui du décalage temporel par exemple car cette réalisation aurait du bénéficier d'un mouvement de solidarité lors de "L'année Lurçat* (1992, date de son centenaire) et du non règlement de ses droits. Là où nous peinons quelque peu à comprendre le fin mot de l'histoire, c'est par rapport au fait qu'il y aurait eu deux tirages, le premier en 1990 et le second en 1993, qui posent diverses questions: - Combien exactement d'exemplaires furent-ils tirés à chaque fois et combien équipés d'emboîtage ? - Les factures de l'imprimeur sur soie indiquant des formats de 80 et 90 cm2, à quoi correspondent-ils ? - Le premier a-t-il vraiment été offert aux fidèles du Verseau et le second commercialisé ? Et la coquille corrigée sur ce dernier ? En sus des deux gouaches existent également deux textes, fut-il projeté deux foulards ? Etc.Il en existe une version en langue allemande.Carré disponible isolément. Image visible sur site céleste. Avec un texte préface de l'artiste reproduit en fac-similé autographe, cet ultime "foulard littéraire" des maîtres-imprimeurs du Verseau, les plus novateurs au pays de Vaud.Crée en 1957, suite à l'achat de deux gouaches chez l'artiste par les éditeurs, ce motif ne fut réalisé que 43 ans plus tard, pour le centenaire de Roth & Sauter.

        Edwardian Golf

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