        Forest Song.

      Tokyo:: Epigone Press,, 1991.. Edition of 50. 9.5 x 13"; 22 pages. Printed on Mulberry paper. Woodcuts. Marbled paper pastedowns. Bound in paper covered boards with cloth spine. Stab binding. Art Hazelwood: "Forest Song is a book of 12 woodblock print images and 11 woodblock text images describing a subconscious journey through illness to restored health. The prints grew out of a period of illness in India. I was traveling for several months in Asia and found myself quite sick in Dharamsala, India, home of the Tibetan government-in-exile. There I stayed for two months being treated by Tibetan doctors and living in a hotel/monastery so that every morning at 3 a.m. I would awaken to the sound of chanting monks. A mysterious environment to be sinking into the lethargy of illness. The slow recovery and its accompanying sense of inwardness is the feeling out of which this series came. Although it shows no outward reference to the surrounding environment or my illness the prints are psychologically representative. The text was written by me to add to the atmosphere of mystery rather than as explanation.

        The Way We Live Now

      London: Karsten Schubert, 1991. 6 coloured aquatints, with added tempera, by Howard Hodgkin (2 folding, 4 double-page). Original paper-covered boards, original blue paper chemise with orange tempera added by hand, protective tissue covering to binding, original publishers cardboard slip-case with printed title label on upper cover A fine copy of a work featured in Riva Castleman's survey of the best livre'd'artiste of the last century; John Updike included Sontag's story in his Best American Short Stories of the Twentieth Century. "This is a special work of art, a unique collaboration between two great artists in response to the AIDS crisis" (Castleman p.198). Castleman's description of Howard Hodgkin's etched aquatints as "lushly colored" is satisfyingly accurate: the project was evidently close to the artist's heart (he spent four years working on the images) and he clearly wanted to create a worthy visual accompaniment to this short story by Susan Sontag. The addition of tempera by hand ensures that each plate is unique, but Hodgkin's intention with the series was to illuminate both the emotional changes and, at a cellular level, the physical changes bought about by the disease. The overall result "achieves an optimistic effect, which strongly repudiates the horror and fear." (Castleman). Sonntag's short story, perhaps the greatest ever written on the subject, offers an honest and deeply-felt account of an AIDS sufferer, and human strength in the face of inevitable loss. The edition was limited to just 243 copies, numbered and signed by both the author and the artist, this copy is number 116 of 200 copies. "All proceeds from the sale of ...[the] book ... [were] given to AIDS charities in the United Kingdom and the United States". "The book is designed by Gordon House ... The pictures and end papers are original etchings by Howard Hodgkin. The etchings are printed in intaglio ... and hand painted in Sennelier tempera by Jack Shirreff ... The cover is hand painted in tempera ... the bookbinding is done by Dieter Schulke" (printed note at end). Castleman, A Century of Artists Books p.198.

        Correspondentie over gedichten voor een bloemlezing. Brieven aan Bert Natter van H.C. ten Berge, Rutger Kopland, Gerrit Kouwenaar, Lucebert, Hanny Michaelis, Hans Plomp, M. Vasalis en Daisy Wolthers.

      Handgeschreven (5 x) en getypt (3 x). Diverse formaten. Acht bladen totaal. Alleen recto. Gesigneerd en gedateerd '24.04.91', 'Glimmen, 19/5/91', '1071 KL Amsterdam, 14.4.1991', 'Bergen n.h. 18 April 1991', 'Amsterdam, 14 april 1991', '' resp. 'Roden 20-4-'91'.* Dichterspost aan Bert Natter, redacteur bij uitgeverij Kwadraat, voor de bij die uitgeverij te verschijnen bloemlezing Van niets dan lucht te leven. Een bloemlezing gedichten over de natuur en het milieu (1991). Alle dichters geven per brief toestemming voor opname van hun gedicht (Wolthers doet dat namens de erven Achterberg): ze zijn akkoord met het honorarium (f 35,-) en geven hun rekeningnummer op. Sommige brieven zijn kort en zakelijk, andere iets uitvoeriger.Gerrit Kouwenaar verzoekt Natter de zaak verder af te handelen met Querido. Hanny Michaelis wil graag 'een bewijsnummer' ontvangen. Hans Plomp schrijft (op bijzonder vezelig briefpapier) dat zijn gedicht 'Lofzang aan de Aarde' niet eerder gepublicerd is. De meest inhoudelijke brief is van Vasalis: zij wenst Natter succes met het initiatief: 'er is bijna niets dat mij zo zeer ter hart gaat'. Zij wijst de redacteur erop dat haar 'bank-naam' 'M. Droogleever Fortuyn Leenmans' is. In een PS vraagt de dichter zich af of het niet beter zou zijn voor 'Waterkant. Vroeger' de nieuwe spelling te gebruiken: 'Ik geloof dat die oude een zekere vervreemding geeft'.Een exemplaar van de bloemlezing is bijgevoegd (herdruk 2000).

        Flore Danoise

Half-title and title in red, Text in French and Danish, printed in black with headings in red and black. 7 coloured plates by Alechinsky, each an "eau-forte originale sur facsimile de Flora Danica," each numbered and signed in pencil by Alechinsky. Unbound as issued in original limp paper wrappers, the upper cover with etched calligraphic decorated title printed in red and silver, plexiglass slipcase Fine copy: the edition limited to 165 copies signed by the author, this copy number 7 of the 125 copies for sale by the publishers. An approximate translation of the colophon: " Flore Danoiose , a poem by Michel Sicard - dedicated to his daughter Flora - and the Danish translation by Uffee Harder are both set by hand in 20 point Garamond type. The seven original etchings by Pierre Alechinsky are printed on facsimiles of plates from the 18th-century botanical work: Flora Danica." The excellent images - reminiscent of the work of Max Ernst - provide a fresh view of some of the more esoteric images from Flora Danica . The literary/artistic equivalent of cloud-imagined figures and landscapes, Alechinsky offers a sophisticated view which complements Sicard's text/poems to his daughter.

        Theologische Ethik. 5 Bände.

      Waltrop : Spenner, 1991. Reprint der 2. Aufl., Koelling, Wittenberg, 1869-1871. Originalleinen. Ein gutes und sauberes Exemplar. - Die geistige Unabhängigkeit der Theologischen Ethik zeugt von dem in Rothes Lebensgeschichte immer kräftiger und ihm selbst verläßlicher entwickelten freien Glauben. Rothes Theologie ist eine Einladung zum Christ-Sein, will - mit Luther - Leib und Seele, Augen, Ohren, und alle Glieder, Vernunft und alle Sinne öffnen für das Leben des Menschen im kommenden Gottesreich, wie es sich in der Kulturwelt entwickelt. Dieses Pathos von der \"christlichen Welt\" bestimmt seine Theologie. Rothe ist aber auch vom Pathos in einem anderen, spezifischen Sinn bestimmt. Er leidet an der Auswanderung des Bürgertums, zumal der Gebildeten, aus der Kirche. Er will ein Wortführer der bürgerlich-protestantischen Bildungsschicht sein und insofern kann man seine Theologie im Vorgriff auf ein Modewort gern eine \"Bürgerethik\" nennen. Daß Rothe sich dabei nicht in das für die meisten seiner gebadeten Zeitgenossen unbewohnbare Haus kirchlicher Dogmatik zurückzog, sondern die grundlegende Einheit des Christentums mit der modernen Welt schlichtweg voraussetzte, das hat ihm begeisterte Verehrer wie verwunderte Spötter bis heute gesichert.

        THE WHITE CASTLE

      New York City, NY: George Braziller, 1991. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: George Braziller, 1991. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 161 pages. The author's first novel to be translated into English. Now considered a contemporary classic. The first appearance of the title in English and in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a very small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. Presents Orhan Pamuk's "The White Castle" in a felicitous English translation. "In the 17th century, a young Italian scholar sailing from Venice to Naples is taken prisoner and delivered to Constantinople. There he falls into the custody of a scholar known as Hoja ('Master'), a man who is his exact double. In the years that follow, the Slave instructs his Master on Western science and technology, from medicine to pyrotechnics. But Hoja wants to know more: Why he and his captive are the persons they are and whether, given knowledge of each other's most intimate secrets, they could actually exchange identities. A colorful and intricately patterned triumph of the imagination" (Publisher's blurb). Pamuk's books are censored and often banned outright in his native Turkey, a culture that has to strike a delicate balance between (Eastern) Islam and (Western) secularism. The threat to one's freedom makes writing even more urgent and turns talented writers into great ones. His most passionate critic/admirer in America, the late great novelist John Updike, chose "Snow" as the best novel of the year 2004, bar none. An absolute "must-have" title for Orhan Pamuk collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the title page by Orhan Pamuk. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. Pamuk's signature on this copy is spectacular, the single most beautiful signed copy we have ever seen. Laid-in is a pristine copy of the Souvenir Material of the event during which his signature was obtained. This title is a great book. This is one of very few such signed copies of the First American Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Many copies available online are price-clipped, remainder-marked, and have other major flaws. And yet, some copies command as much as $1500. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. Winner of the IMPAC Dublin Literary Award in 2003 for "My Name Is Red". Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2006, the first Turkish writer to be so deservedly honored. One of the greatest living writers. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ORHAN PAMUK TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0807612642.

Der Künstler Christo wird normalerweise in einem Atemzug mit seiner Frau Jeanne-Claude genannt, mit der er über Jahrzehnte bis zu ihrem Tod 2009 gemeinsame Projekte ausführte. Sie lernten sich beide kennen durch einen Portraitauftrag, den Christo im Hause ihrer Eltern erhielt. Christo wandte sich in Paris den neuen Realisten, in deren Auffassung die Objektkunst eine große Rolle spielte. Nachdem er begonnen hatte einzelne kleine Objekte mit Kunststoff zu verhüllen, weitete er mit seiner Frau diese Kunstform auf zahlreiche Großprojekte weltweit aus. Viele dieser Projekte konnten verwirklicht werden, einige verblieben auf dem Papier. Bekannt sind ihre Verhüllungen des Pont Neuf, eines Küstenstreifens in Australien oder die \"Umbrellas\" in Japan, eine Vielzahl blauer Schirme verteilt über die Landschaft. Die Projekte finanzierten beide immer selbst, meist durch vorbereitende Graphiken der Projekte. Das vorliegende Projekt konnte nicht realisiert werden. Erste Zeichnungen und Modelle entstanden in den 1960er Jahren. Versand D: 5,50 EUR Künstlergraphik, 20. Jahrhundert, Christo, New York, Times Square

        RAFT.

      [London]: GraftonBooks A Division of HarperCollinsPublishers, [1991] - Octavo, boards. First edition. Signed inscription by Baxter to "Frank" on the title page. The author's well-received first book. ". RAFT features some of the most startling hard SF content in recent years. It is the first volume in the author's loosely connected Xeelee future history." - Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II- 84. "Humans are stranded on a 'raft' in a pocket universe of enormous gravity. Baxter's debut novel, in which he describes his young hero's quest through a world that is strange indeed. As an all-too-rare example of British SF rooted in speculative physics, it has drawn praise from Larry Niven, Bob Shaw and others." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. [296]. "It is very, very hard SF, and it's great fun, and the cosmogonic precepts of its universe are challenging to grasp, and it's quite quickly told, and it's really dumb about people." - John Clute. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#138840) [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
