        RAFT.

      [London]: GraftonBooks A Division of HarperCollinsPublishers,. [1991]. boards.. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#89079). First edition. Signed inscription by Baxter to "Jim" 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.

        Vhor-text

      New York 1991 - Unique manuscript and binding signed by the artist.Bound in largely brown hand-colored leather with a double board, hollow spine structure. Exposed leather sewing supports. Mixed media relief boards including Florida sand; acrylic paints and glazes; and gold, copper, red, and blue highlights. Decorated endpapers by the artist. Manuscript, letterpress, and transfer monotype title page signed and dated by the artist. Fifteen double-page spreads and two single-page drawings (including the title page) on thick hand-made paper, 18 leaves total. Each original drawing executed in a mixture of pen and ink, graphite, watercolour, dry pigments, hand punches, transfer monotype, and paper transfer prints by Timothy Ely. Housed in a custom clamshell box by the artist. 20.7cm x 14cm.Vhor-text is a fairly early work of Ely’s, rare to find available for sale. The title might as well be "vortex." At the time of creation, Ely’s personal life was in turmoil. He was depressed and disoriented, emotionally and physically, but his move to New York from Oregon had opened a new world of materials, techniques, and influences. It was a period of experimentation and misery. Ely was submerged in a soup of apathy, inspiration, and ambivalence. Vhor-text shows it all.While small in scale, Vhor-text is jam packed. It bounces from chaos to precision and back to chaos. Ely manages to evoke both in each drawing and the work as a whole. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Unter den zahlreichen, teils ganzseitigen Holzschnitten finden sich viele Stadtansichten wie z.B.: Wien, Salzburg, Regensburg, Nürnberg, München, Augsburg, Rom, Prag, Budapest, Basel, Jerusalem etc. Entstehung: Erstausgabe gedruckt bei Koberger in Nürnberg, 1493. In der Werkstatt von Michael Wolgemut und Wilhelm Pleydenwurff, welche die Illustrationen lieferten, absolvierte zur Entstehungszeit Albrecht Dürer seine Lehrzeit und war möglicherweise mit Vorzeichnungen daran beteiligt. Mehr als 50 Kommissionäre organisierten den Vertrieb in mehr als 30 europäische Orte. Pergament in Schuber. Limitierte Auflage: 800 Exemplare. Editionsnummer: 239. Neuwertiges Exemplar, Schuber mit geringen Gebrauchsspuren. Die Chronik folgt der Tradition mittelalterlicher Chroniken, indem sie die Geschichte der Welt in Weltalter darstellt. Das Werk enthält 1809 Holzschnitt-Illustrationen der Wolgemut-Werkstatt - die sich teilweise wiederholen - und ist damit das am umfangreichsten illustrierte Buch des 15. Jahrhunderts. Unter den Illustrationen befinden sich 29 doppelseitige Stadtansichten und zwei doppelseitige Landkarten: eine Weltkarte und eine Europakarte. Michael Wolgemut begann 1487 zusammen mit Wilhelm Pleydenwurff, seinem Schwiegersohn, mit den Entwurfsarbeiten zu den Holzschnitten. Auch Beiträge des jungen Albrecht Dürer sind wahrscheinlich, der bis 1490 bei Wolgemut in die Lehre ging.Im Originalschuber mit Zertifikat.

        Original Cartoon Illustration: "The Balance of Power - The Invincible U.S. Air Force - Communism's Overwhelming Ground Forces"

      N.d. (ca 1950s). An absolutely stunning drawing by Burris Jenkins, long-time staff cartoonist for the New York Journal-American. Jenkins was best known for his sports cartoons, which documented the major sporting events of the day, but he was also a prolific editorial cartoonist. The current example combines elements of both genres, with a foreground dominated a swooping, indomitable, and very athletic-looking American airman hovering over a defiant (but overmatched) Soviet army, in his hands a pair of enormous bombs -- a terrific piece of American Cold-War propaganda. The inscribee, E. Maurice Bloch, was an art historian, long-time professor at UCLA, and founder of the Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts in Los Angeles. His distinguished collection of graphics was auctioned by Christie's in 1991; this drawing was part of Lot 241 in Part 2 of the Bloch sale. Original drawing in graphite and ink, with white ink highlights. Sheet size 33cm x 58cm (ca 13" x 23") with ca. 1" margins. Titled in pencil, top margin. Signed in image, lower right; additionally inscribed in lower margin: "With best wishes to Professor E. Maurice Bloch / Burriss Jenkins," undated but ca 1950. Smudging in margins; compositor's directions written below image; Near Fine. Archivally mounted to a hinged gallery mat with mylar window.

        Writer Tom Wolfe - Photographed at the BBC - London, 1991.

      London, 1991 - Original, Vintage Photograph on archival paper. London, 1991. Fantastic vintage photograph of Wolfe, from the library of irish photographer John Minihan. With John's copyright-stamp verso. Signed and titled by John Minihan. John Minihan is an Irish photographer, born in Dublin in 1946 and raised in Athy, County Kildare. At the age of 12 he was brought to live in London, and went on to become an apprentice photographer with the Daily Mail. At the age of 15 he won the Evening Standard amateur photography competition. At 21 he became the youngest staff photographer for the Evening Standard. For thirty years he remained in London, returning every year to his hometown of Athy to record the people and their daily lives. The work of Minihan in Athy makes up a large part of his canon. Minihan began taking photos in Athy when he was 16. The photos are an attempt to document the lives of the ordinary people of the town in their day to day business and also in times of joy and sadness, notably during the wake of a woman called Katy Tyrrell. In between documenting Athy on visits home, Minihan continued his career on Fleet Street, which included the iconic snap of the 19-year-old Lady Diana Spencer in the garden of the nursery at which she worked, the morning sun to her back, her legs in silhouette through her skirt. Diana had just been announced as the Prince of Wales's love interest and photographers raced to take her photo, Minihan having the fortune to turn up first. Over the years Minihan developed a close relationship with many writers and his photographs of Samuel Beckett show a particular affinity between the two men. Minihans photos of Beckett are some of his best known, one in particular is described as one of the greatest photos of the twentieth century. William S. Burroughs once referred to Minihan as "a painless photographer". Minihan is perhaps best known for his photographs of Samuel Beckett. Minihan first expressed a desire to photograph Beckett in 1969, following Becketts winning of the Nobel Prize for literature, having noticed that all the available photos of Beckett were of a poor quality; 'We were running a story but discovered there were only two very vague images of Beckett taken many years before. It was like he didn't exist - that was the moment I decided I wanted to meet this man and take his photograph.' Minihan first encountered Beckett in London in 1980, while Beckett was working on a production of one of his own plays, Endgame. Minihan met Beckett in the Hyde Park hotel and showed him some of his photos of Athy to break the ice. The two met on a number of occasions over the next few years, but it was not until 1985 that they met in Paris. They arranged to meet in the restaurant of the Hotel PLM, a regular haunt of Beckett. At ten to five, with the light fading, Minihan took the photo that would go on to be called by some as the photograph of the twentieth century. John Calder credited Minihan with capturing, 'the introspective, infinitely sad gaze of a man looking into the abyss of the world's woes'. Among his numerous photographic publications are Photographs: Samuel Beckett (1995); Shadows from the Pale, Portrait of an Irish Town (1996); and An Unweaving of Rainbows, Images of Irish Writers, 1996. He is currently a freelance photographer specialising in 'the arts'. His book of photographs of Samuel Beckett was published in 1995. His photographs of Athy have been exhibited throughout the world. He was given the freedom of Athy in 1990. Minihan currently lives and works in West Cork. Minihan's many exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world include the Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro, 1984; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris 1986; the National Portrait Gallery, London 1987/8 and the October Gallery, London 1990 as well as the Guinness Hop Store, Dublin 1991.

In 1971, Leigh Fermor accompanied five friends on a remarkable journey into the high Andes of Peru, from Cuzco to Urubamba, on to Puno and Juli on Lake Titicaca, down to Arequipa, and finally back to Lima. The expedition, led by a writer and poet, included a Swiss international skier and jeweler, a social anthropologist from Provence, and a Nottinghamshire farming squire—all seasoned mountaineers. The other two participants—Leigh Fermor and a botany-loving duke—were complete novices. As the group traveled into increasingly remote regions, Leigh Fermor recorded experiences in this series of letters to his wife. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves.

        The First Picture Book Everyday Things for Babies

      Library Fellows of the Whitney Museum, New York 1991 - First edition in this format of a 1930 publication. Afterword by John Updike. Quarter morocco and cloth. Fine in fine slipcase. One of 250 copies Signed by Updike and Calderone. Original photogravure by Steichen bound in, as well as another print of the same image in a folder. Additionally Inscribed by Updike: "for Herb a tasty item with every good wish, John 1/28/92." Herb Yellin was the founder and publisher of Lord John Press and the most frequent of Updike's fine press collaborators. He named his press after noting that the list of authors he wanted to publish all shared the same first name, chief among them John Updike, his favorite. *Hub Fans Bid Kid Adieu* became the press's first book in 1977 with 10 more to follow over the next 23 years. Yellin's friendship with Updike grew with each new limited edition benefitting his already enormous Updike collection, with Updike himself contributing copies of new editions of his books - often inscribed. In a 2010 interview with Yellin he noted that Updike ".liked that if anything ever happened to his own collection, he had my collection on the opposite side of the country." A notable association.

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. Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 0 [Attributes: Soft Cover]
