        Lager Lieder

      Ziggurat Press, Providence, R.I. 1991 - Limited special edition, number 12 of 17, oblong quarto size, [30] pp., signed by Walter Feldman. Limited special edition, number 12 of 17 numbered copies. Walter Feldman (1925-2017) was an art professor at Brown University and established the Ziggurat Press in 1984. This work is an illustrated collection of the songs that were sung in concentration camps, transcribed and translated from the Polish record album, Piesni Obozowe (Songs of the Concentration Camps), Polskie Nagrania: Muza, 1979, #SX1715. The songs were sung by Beligian amateur singer and performer Aleksander Kulisiewicz in the Sachsenhausen concentration camp where Mr. Feldman was a prisoner from 1939 to 1945; after the war he collected the songs and performed them on the record. The authentic ledger folders used for binding are painted in black stripes, evocative of the uniforms worn by camp prisoners. Feldman states, "When I first saw the Lager Lieder I knew immediately that I would have to compose visual accompaniments for these powerful and frightening words. All aspects of the book were designed hopefully, to provide the appropriate setting, including the ledger folders (actually from the 1930s) to the authentic tattoo members in the title." ***DESCRIPTION: Original bolted gray cloth with black stripes and leather corner pieces, paper label with title to upper board, black and red handprints to both pastedowns and title-page, ten woodcut illustrations, Bodoni type, Nideggen and Ingres papers, oblong quarto (9.75" by 13"), unpaginated [30 pp.], limited special edition, number 12 of 17 numbered copies, signed by Walter Feldman. ***CONDITION: A fine copy in a repurposed, one-of-a-kind binding that is meant to be soiled in certain places, internally bright, fine; like new. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply, please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        Gay Roots.

      San Francisco: Gay Sunshine Press,, 1991-3. Twenty Years of Gay Sunshine. An Anthology of Gay History, Sex, Politics, and Culture. Edited by Winston Leyland. Two volumes, octavo. Original violet half cloth, titles gilt to spine, white paper sides, patterned purple endpapers. Illustrated frontispiece and others in the text. Titles a little rubbed on vol. i spine, small dent to lower edge of rear board on vol. i, but all in excellent condition. First edition, first printing, Winston Leyland's own copy of the deluxe signed limited issue, letters B and Z of 26 specially bound copies signed by Leyland, these volumes additionally signed by Leyland on the title pages and deriving from his personal collection. There were also 300 unsigned cloth copies, the vast majority of which were sold to libraries. Winston Leyland (b.1940) was a leading figure in American LGBT publishing and won the Stonewall Book Award in 1980. He established the Gay Sunshine Press in 1975, which was notable for its pioneering anthologies of gay writing from other cultures, and his Gay Sunshine Journal (1970-82) was particularly influential for its interviews with prominent gay writers of the era. Gay Roots was produced to celebrate and anthologise these endeavours, advertised as "an anthology encyclopaedic in scale, Gay Roots collects the best writings from the turbulent early 1970's–the very beginning of modern gay liberation–right up to the present day. Work from Gay Sunshine Journal–the groundbreaking tabloid–that served as a forum and catalyst for the revolution underway–appears together with some of the most catalytic gay writing published by Gay Sunshine Press, the oldest continuing gay book publisher in the United States. Tennessee Williams wrote in 1977 of Gay Sunshine: 'The only completely literate and serious Gay Journal with which I'm acquainted.' Five books in one, with sections on 'Gay History,' 'Gay Sex and Politics,' 'Gay Biography and Literary Essays,' 'Gay Fiction,' and 'Gay Poetry,' Gay Roots is intended for every gay person desiring to reclaim a rich cultural tradition."

        The Bottom of the Harbor [with LEC Monthly Newsletter]

      New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1991. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Abbott, Berenice. Number 33 of 250, quarto size, 249 pp., signed by Joseph Mitchell. Joseph Quincy Mitchell (1908-1996), although born in the south (North Carolina) moved to New York City after graduation from college and after stints with several NY newspapers, landed a job as a staff writer for "The New Yorker"; he was known for his "carefully written portraits of eccentrics and people on the fringes of society" (per Wiki). "'The Bottom of the Harbor' comprises six narratives that first appeared in the New Yorker. They tell of waterfront life, of deserted rooms in an abandoned hotel in lower Manhattan, of a once-thriving community on the south shore of Staten Island, of Sloppy Louie's, of fish and fishermen and the bottom of the harbor. But underneath the surface lies Mitchell's constant theme - the depths of the unconscious. His writings are imbued with a symbolism notably rare in this genre of literature. Five photographs by Berenice Abbott, one of America's leading photographers, were selected to complement the text." In 1929 Abbott returned to New York from Paris and "concentrated on depicting the city's changing character and explored the types of scenes and individuals described in Joseph Mitchell's essays." (Quotes from LEC newsletter.) ***DESCRIPTION: Original quarter black Nigerian oasis goatskin with black Irish linen over boards, backstrip stamped in gilt, white endpapers, five photogravures including frontis, Monotype Bell type, paper is mould-made stock from Cartiere Enrico Magnani, quarto size (11 7/8" by 9"), 249 pp., limited edition, this number 33 of 250 copies, signed by author Joseph Mitchell.

        Needful Things

      Viking (1991), New York - 690 pages. A novel set in the fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine. The premise is that a demon or perhaps the Devil himself sets up shop where he sells the items people most covet, like a Sandy Koufax baseball card, for absurdly low prices. Mayhem then ensues. First edition (first printing). A very good copy in a very good dust jacket (scuffing to covers). This copy is inscribed to King's friend and fellow baseball fan, the evolutionary paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould. Sometimes as a bookseller, a book makes your humble cataloguer sad. This is such an instance. Clearly King had great affection for Gould, beyond a shared love of baseball, even if they were passionate about different teams (a rivalry that played out in their books: see Gould, Wonderful Life, footnote on page 285, and the acknowledgements page of King's The Tommyknockers). But alas, Gould left us too soon and his books are now destined for other owners, a situation that Gould, as a book collector, well understood. The inscription reads, 'For Steve and Deborah Gould - with lots of love to [the children] as well. Steve, I know you don't believe in the devil, but I'm sure you DO believe that, if there WAS such a creature, he would undoubtedly ensnare the souls of young boys by offering them Brooklyn Dodgers baseball cards cheap! Love you guys. Steven King. 9/14/91.' This novel was published on September 30, 1991; given that the inscription is dated two weeks earlier, it is almost certainly one of King's author copies. It is hard to imagine that there is a better copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

The second Dutch edition appeared in 1704 with some additions, but the present French edition has further additions, including for the first time the entire second part (pp. 243-388) on arbitrage (the trade in bills of exchange and stocks) and exchange rates between the principal cities of Europe and Amsterdam, by the French-Basque architect and merchant Jacques Mondoteguy (ca. 1672/73-1739). The book gives valuable and detailed information about the trade with the Spanish, Portuguese and other colonies in a period when the Netherlands financed and operated a fleet of over 8000 ships.With water stains in the first few and last few leaves (the latter with a few marginal restorations) and a couple worm holes in the gutter margin, but still in good condition. The binding is slightly rubbed and somewhat loose in the hinges but still good. A rare and important practical handbook for merchants trading in or with Amsterdam.

        Lager Lieder

      Providence, R.I.: Ziggurat Press, 1991. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Feldman, Walter. Limited special edition, number 12 of 17, oblong quarto size, [30] pp., signed by Walter Feldman. Limited special edition, number 12 of 17 numbered copies. Walter Feldman (1925-2017) was an art professor at Brown University and established the Ziggurat Press in 1984. This work is an illustrated collection of the songs that were sung in concentration camps, transcribed and translated from the Polish record album, Piesni Obozowe (Songs of the Concentration Camps), Polskie Nagrania: Muza, 1979, #SX1715. The songs were sung by Beligian amateur singer and performer Aleksander Kulisiewicz in the Sachsenhausen concentration camp where Mr. Feldman was a prisoner from 1939 to 1945; after the war he collected the songs and performed them on the record. The authentic ledger folders used for binding are painted in black stripes, evocative of the uniforms worn by camp prisoners. Feldman states, "When I first saw the Lager Lieder I knew immediately that I would have to compose visual accompaniments for these powerful and frightening words. All aspects of the book were designed hopefully, to provide the appropriate setting, including the ledger folders (actually from the 1930s) to the authentic tattoo members in the title." ***DESCRIPTION: Original bolted gray cloth with black stripes and leather corner pieces, paper label with title to upper board, black and red handprints to both pastedowns and title-page, ten woodcut illustrations, Bodoni type, Nideggen and Ingres papers, oblong quarto (9.75" by 13"), unpaginated [30 pp.], limited special edition, number 12 of 17 numbered copies, signed by Walter Feldman. ***CONDITION: A fine copy in a repurposed, one-of-a-kind binding that is meant to be soiled in certain places, internally bright, fine; like new. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply, please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

Das ausgehende Mittelalter war von großen geistigen, gesellschaftlichen und wirtschaftlichen Umwälzungen gekennzeichnet. Diese spiegeln sich auch in den Handschriften jener Zeit wider, die als hervorragende Dokumente der kulturellen Entwicklung gelten können. Eine besondere Stellung kommt in diesem Zusammenhang den Historienbibeln zu. In ihnen wurden die biblischen Erzählungen durch profanhistorische und philosophische Exkurse zu einer Art mittelalterlicher Universalgeschichte, die von der Schöpfung bis zum Jüngsten Gericht reichte, ausgebaut. Wo das biblische Geschehen historische Lücken aufwies, schloß man diese unter Heranziehung apokrypher Schriften, Legenden und weltlicher Geschichtswerke. In der Sprache des Volkes verfaßt, erfüllten die Historienbibeln somit einerseits die Forderung nach religiös-erzieherischer Erbauung, dienten andererseits zugleich aber auch weiten Teilen der Bevölkerung als einzig zugängliches Geschichtsbuch. Unter den rund 100 deutschsprachigen Historienbibeln nimmt die Vorauer Volksbibel in künstlerischer Hinsicht unbestritten den höchsten Rang ein. Insgesamt 559 (!) Miniaturen begleiten den in einer baierisch-österreichischen Mundart verfaßten Text und belegen einmal mehr die starke Bilderfreude des Spätmittelalters. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Bottom of the Harbor [with LEC Monthly Newsletter]

      New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1991. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Abbott, Berenice. Number 33 of 250, quarto size, 249 pp., signed by Joseph Mitchell. Joseph Quincy Mitchell (1908-1996), although born in the south (North Carolina) moved to New York City after graduation from college and after stints with several NY newspapers, landed a job as a staff writer for "The New Yorker"; he was known for his "carefully written portraits of eccentrics and people on the fringes of society" (per Wiki). "'The Bottom of the Harbor' comprises six narratives that first appeared in the New Yorker. They tell of waterfront life, of deserted rooms in an abandoned hotel in lower Manhattan, of a once-thriving community on the south shore of Staten Island, of Sloppy Louie's, of fish and fishermen and the bottom of the harbor. But underneath the surface lies Mitchell's constant theme - the depths of the unconscious. His writings are imbued with a symbolism notably rare in this genre of literature. Five photographs by Berenice Abbott, one of America's leading photographers, were selected to complement the text." In 1929 Abbott returned to New York from Paris and "concentrated on depicting the city's changing character and explored the types of scenes and individuals described in Joseph Mitchell's essays." (Quotes from LEC newsletter.)***DESCRIPTION: Original quarter black Nigerian oasis goatskin with black Irish linen over boards, backstrip stamped in gilt, white endpapers, five photogravures including frontis, Monotype Bell type, paper is mould-made stock from Cartiere Enrico Magnani, quarto size (11 7/8" by 9"), 249 pp., limited edition, this number 33 of 250 copies, signed by author Joseph Mitchell. With the Limited Editions Club newsletter loosely laid in, housed in a black Irish linen slipcase lined with black suede.***CONDITION: A very fine copy, like new, in a like case.***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply, please inquire for details.***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.
