        Aeussere Ansicht der Roemischen Baeder zu Trier."

      - Lithographie, auf cremefarbenem Velin. Darstellungsgröße 38,5:50 cm, Blattgröße 53:66,5 cm. Literatur: Aus Nagler 2; Ausst. Katalog: Johann Anton Ramboux. Ansichten von Trier, 1991, Nr. 8, Abb. 62. – Vorzügliches Exemplar mit breitem Rand. Blatt 7 aus der berühmten Folge „Malerische Ansichten der merkwürdigsten Alterthümer und vorzüglicher Naturanlagen im Moselthale bey Trier", 1824-1827 erschienen, erschienen mit dem Begleittext des Trierer Gelehrten und Bibliothekars Joh.H. Wyttenbach. Obwohl die Folge insgesamt in acht Heften mit je 4 Blättern erscheinen sollte, wurde sie nach dem vierten Heft eingestellt, wegen Mangels an Interesse. Die 4 Hefte sind nicht einmal in öffentlichen Sammlungen komplett vorhanden und sie gehören heute zu den großen Raritäten, die die deutsche Romantik auf dem Gebiet der Graphik hervorgebracht hat. Bemerkenswert ist das Urteil des großen französischen Malers J.L. David, dessen Schüler Ramboux war: „. ich muß zugeben, daß in der großen Zahl von Schülern, die ich ausgebildet habe, niemand in irgendeiner Zeit mehr Talent als der junge Ramboux gezeigt hat.; er ist geboren, um in dieser Kunst dem Lande, das ihn hervorgebracht hat, Ehre zu bringen."

        The First Picture Book Everyday Things for Babies

      New York: Library Fellows of the Whitney Museum. [1991]. First. 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. .

        [Archive of Correspondence, Typescripts, and Manuscripts]

      Various (Northampton, MA; Paros, Greece; and elsewhere), (1991-2008). Four (4) typed letters signed (TLS), twelve (12) autograph letters signed (ALS), and eight (8) signed autograph postcards, from poet Jack Gilbert, all addressed to friend Mike Edwards. Some 7000+ words in total. WITH: Eleven (11) original typescript draft poems (both laser-printed and typewriter) and one (1) holograph poem. ALSO INCLUDES: 34 draft poems photomechanically reproduced from Gilbert's holograph and typescript (for use in workshop setting, see details below), as well as complete photomechanically-reproduced copies (from Gilbert's original typescripts) of his final two books: REFUSING HEAVEN and THE DANCE MOST OF ALL, the latter INSCRIBED to Edwards by Gilbert in his late hand. Generally near fine or better overall. An intimate nearly two-decade-long archive of correspondence and related materials from poet Jack Gilbert to his friend Mike Edwards. The archive is composed of four parts: photomechanically reproduced poems from Gilbert's original holograph and typescript (created for use in the writing group); original holograph and typescript drafts of Gilbert?'s poems (given to Edwards directly and conveyed via mail); original correspondence (both typed and autograph letters as well as postcards); and copies (from his original typescript) of Gilbert's final two books: REFUSING HEAVEN and THE DANCE MOST OF ALL. The archive begins with the poems reproduced for workshop use. There are some 34 in total, of which at least 12 are by our reckoning unpublished, with at least another ten representing drafts differing substantially from their final versions. Only seven examples are largely or entirely as published. Though undated these workshop poems date ca. 1991-96 and provide a valuable window into Gilbert?'s compositional methods, as well as offering significant unpublished materials for study. 11 original typescript poems are also present, as is one entirely in Gilbert?'s holograph. Again, at least two are unpublished, with most of the others representing drafts, usually with substantive changes when compared again the final published versions. Most of these originals are later, ca. 1998-2000. In all, 45 draft poems, at least 15 apparently unpublished, with fewer than a dozen as (or largely as) published and most demonstrating substations revisions. Though Gilbert was often known for prickliness and distance, these letters bely that reputation. They find him entirely warm, open, and generous. Gilbert offers comments on Edwards?' poems and on several occasions encloses poems of his own (see above). He variously discusses his own ideas about poetry, his travel plans, his youth, health, publishing, relationships, the deaths of friends and family, and numerous other topics. The letters reveal a tender relationship, one clearly born of trust and mutual admiration, and a voice that is the same as that of the poems: utterly sincere and unembarrassed. The correspondence ends in 2002, but the friendship continued, as the presence of copies of Gilbert's final two book attests. These typescripts, like the individual draft poems previously discussed, show substantial variation from their final published forms. The typescript for REFUSING HEAVEN demonstrates perhaps the most significant revisions between the draft included and the ultimate version. First and most obviously, the order of the poems in the book is radically different. More than that, however, many of the poems themselves differ from their final forms: several title changes and numerous edits (both large and small) are evident throughout. In addition, several poems originally slotted for REFUSING HEAVEN were removed between this version and the final, only to be included later in THE DANCE MOST OF ALL. And most importantly, one poem exists in two drafts, both of which differ from the final, and another two poems were cut from the published edition that apparently remain unpublished. THE DANCE MOST OF ALL typescript differs most significantly in the order of the poems, while the poems themselves show fewer changes than the previous typescript for REFUSING HEAVEN. Nonetheless, numerous smaller edits are evident throughout, and the presence of Gilbert?'s inscription at a time when he was signing very few books lends this final piece of the archive an undeniable poignancy. In his shunning of public attention, infrequent appearances and interviews, slender and careful output, regular self-imposed exile, and unique mix of both popular acclaim and peer respect, Gilbert?'s career resembled less those of his contemporaries and more the careers of beloved poetic figures like T.S. Eliot and Elizabeth Bishop. Indeed, at the time of his death, Gilbert was one of the most widely-read and influential of American poets, a combination that gave him an almost singular stature. A detailed, descriptive inventory of the archive is available on request, as are additional images. More than 200 printed pages in total, this collection represents a long-lived correspondence with a major American poet during what was arguably his most fertile period, one rich in personal and biographical detail. It offers a rare window into both Gilbert?'s working methods and creative process, as well as containing a significant trove of unpublished material. An archive worthy of prominent institutional placement, with a scope and depth that has clear potential for original scholarship.

        L'AUGUSTA DUCALE BASILICA DELL'EVANGELISTA SAN MARCO NELL'INCLITA DOMINANTE DI VENEZIA. Colle notizie del suo innalzamento, sua architettura, musaici, reliquie e preziosità che in essa si contengono; arricchite di alcune annotazioni, e adornate di varie tavole in rame dissegnate da celebre Architetto ed incise da perito Artefice.

      Opera rara e magnifica (come giustamente la definisce in un suo catalogo l?editore Antonio Zatta), di certo uno dei più rappresentativi monumenti della stamperia veneziana del Settecento, grazie anche alle enormi tavole, realizzate dal celebre architetto Antonio Visentini, e incise in rame dal padre scolopio Vincenzo Mariotti. Di questo libro a stampa di raffinata fattura, dedicato alla sua chiesa più bella, San Marco, offriamo soltanto lo straordinario apparato iconografico (contenuto in una cartella di cm. 54x41), così composto: - frontespizio (cm. 74 x 51). - ritratto di Marco Foscarini, procuratore di San Marco (cui è dedicata l?opera), entro ricchissima cornice in cui figurano piccoli putti e il leone di S. Marco, coronata da figure allegoriche (cm. 74 x 51). - 8 grandi tavole numerate, così suddivise: Tav. I ?Pianta del Tempio Ducale di S. Marco?, cm. 77,8 x 53 (con piccoli restauri al solo margine). Tav. II ?Facciata Maggiore verso la Piazza Grande?, cm. 47,9 x 72,4. Tav. III ?Facciata del fianco a destra della Chiesa Ducale di S. Marco dirimpetto S. Bassa., cm. 47,7 x 71,8. Tav. IV - V ?Facciata del Fianco a Sinistra della Chiesa Ducale di S. Marco dirimpetto il Broglio, cm. 46,7 x 96,3 (con picc. manc. al marg. infer. che intacca una figura, qui sapientem. ricostituita, con ottimo restauro). Tav. VI - VII - VIII ?Profili delli tre Atri del Tempio?, cm. 46,4 x 95,7 (con manc. nella parte inferiore di cm.16x5, qui sapientemente ricostituita, con ottimo restauro). Tav. IX ?Regia Cappella della Ducal Basilica di S. Marco ove risiede il Serenissimo Doge nelle funzioni pubbliche?, cm. 72 x 48,2 (con picc. restauro al marg. bianco). Tav. X ?Profilo interiore di fronte del Tempio?, cm. 48,3 x 72,4. Tav. XI ?Profilo interiore per lungo del Tempio?, cm. 48,1 x 72 (con picc. restauri: per ang. inf. manc. e per manc. al marg. bianco, senza intaccare nessuna figg.). (Mancano l?antiporta e il testo di pp. (8),64, con descrizione della basilica e delle tavole). Cfr. Berlin Katalog, 2708 - Cicognara,3994 - Cicogna,4613: ?E? opera grandiosa specialmente per le tavole del celebre Visentini? - Morazzoni pp. 136 - 138: ? ecco una edizione da amatore.. Osiamo ripetere che questo è il volume più bello e rappresentativo della Libreria Zatta?. Uniamo il fac - simile dell?opera, posseduta dalla Biblioteca Marciana di Venezia (in dimensioni ridotte: cm. 48,5x33), pubblicata dal Banco S. Marco, 1991. A parte i difetti segnalati, esemplare ben conservato.

      HarperCollins, New York 1991 - SIGNED LIMITED FIRST EDITION, one of only 326 copies signed by Leibovitz. A collection of Annie Leibovitz's most classic photographs. The photographs made up her first museum show, which "took place in 1991 at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. and toured internationally for six years. At the time she was only the second living portraitist - and the only woman - to be featured in an exhibition by the institution." ("Life Through a Lens", PBS). Included in the book are such legendary photographs as those from the Rolling Stones' 1975 world tour; the last ever taken of John Lennon, nude and wrapped around a fully-clothed Yoko Ono; Nixon's resignation; and Leibovitz's series of ballet dancers, with Mikhail Baryshnikov, Mark Morris, and Darci Kistler. In addition to commemorating Leibovitz's talent as a photographer, Photographs is emblematic of the three decades it spans, depicting celebrities and major events with unparalleled artistry and intimacy. New York: HarperCollins Publishers, 1991. Folio, original cloth, original pictorial slipcase. Very minor wear to slipcase; tiny spot of soiling on spine; generally a fine copy. Rare.
