        Gay Roots. Twenty Years of Gay Sunshine. An Anthology of Gay History, Sex, Politics, and Culture. Edited by Winston Leyland.

      San Francisco: Gay Sunshine Press, 1991-3 - Two volumes, octavo. Original violet half cloth, titles gilt to spine, white paper sides, patterned purple endpapers. Titles a little rubbed on vol. i spine, small dent to lower edge of rear board on vol. i, but all in excellent condition. Illustrated frontispiece and others in the text. 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."

        Le Forchette di Munari

      Mantua: Maurizio Corraini, 1991. Slim quarto. (36)ff. One of 1000 copies. Accompanied by four forks crafted into gestures, mounted on wood boards which are each numbered out of twenty and signed by the artist. The forks, which physically embody some of the drawings in the printed volume, recreate various expressions. The four gestures here are "relax", "come va?", "auto-stop", and "sigaretta?". The volume's text is printed in Italian, French, English, Spanish, German, and Japanese. It, along with the forks, demonstrate Munari's preference for simple yet fantastical art, for making the mundane into the absurd, and for pieces that encouraged kinesthetic learning. Munari first gained prominence as a participant in Filippo Tommaso Marinetti's Futurist movement, which emphasized technology, speed, and youth. Munari later distanced himself from Futurism, and his post-war work can be seen as directly in contrast to its themes. Here the forks' play between usefulness and uselessness undermines Futurism's demands for efficiency. Likewise, the use of old technology to represent well-worn gestures contradicts the Futurists' insistence on newness. Each fork is housed in a clear plastic case, which is nailed to the wood board mount and thus allows the board to rotate slightly. Some minor scuffs to plastic, else fine. Volume shows general wear to extremities, with a slight crease to top cover, else fine. Each fork-case measures 14" long by 2" high by 3" wide (except for one, which measures 2" wide).

        The Way we Live Now.

      1991. HODGKIN, Howard and Susan SONTAG. The Way We Live Now. 33 pp. With four hand-coloured aquatints by Howard Hodgkin and one additional signed aquatint. 8vo., bound in paper-covered boards, in the original dust jacket. London: Karsten Schubert, 1991.The Way We Live Now is a special work of art, a unique collaboration between two great artists in response to the AIDS crisis. Sontag's literary classic was written after a close friend had been diagnosed with AIDS: "I had to write and it all just came out in a rush... It seemed that the whole of my life had prepared me to write like that." The story is about living with illness, and Sontag creates a tangled tapestry of emotions. Despite its tragic subject, the resulting work achieves an optimistic effect, which strongly repudiates the traditional horror and fear. This is one of the very rare copies which is still accompanied by the extra signed aquatint.One of 200 copies, signed by Sontag and Hodgkin.

        Sweynheym & Pannartz and the Origins of printing in Italy: German Technology and Italian Humanism in Renaissance Rome

      Bird & Bull Press for Philip J. Pirages, (McMinnville, OR) 1991 - Octavo. 132pp. One of 275 copies printed for Philip J. Pirages. The leaf is from a copy of Volume I of the Sweynheym and Pannartz first edition of Nicholas of Lyra's Postilla super totam bibliam, completed on 18 November 1471 in the Palazzo Massimo in Rome-only 239 of 452 leaves of that copy remain. The leaf bears a two-line rubricated initial on the recto. Sweynheim and Pannartz, the earliest printers outside Germany, worked at Subiaco and Rome, making Humanist and classical texts available to a wider audience. Since their press runs were normally only 275 copies, their editions are now seldom seen and costly. This is a rare opportunity to study an example of their type, first used in 1467 and now recognized as the first truly Roman font. Each chapter of the accompanying book begins with a 9-line initial in blue ink. Book bound in quarter-morocco with marbled paper over boards. Note from publisher laid in. Leaf housed in a mylar envelope framed behind a hinged cloth mat in the lid of a folio-sized blue cloth clamshell case, with a fitted pocket for the book. Some marking on outside of box, else fine. Bookplate. (Chalmers 197). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Passage: A Work Record

      New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf(1991). First Edition / First Printing. Fine in Fine Dust Jacket. 300 pages. The photographer's third retrospective collection. Now considered a late-modern photography classic. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. An austerely elegant production by Irving Penn and Nicholas Callaway: Oversize-volume format. Cloth boards with titles embossed on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Irving Penn. Essay by Alexander Liberman. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with black titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Irving Penn's "Passage: A Work Record". Some of the most iconic, moving, and beautiful photographs ever taken in the 20th century by one of its greatest photographers. The book is aptly titled: The passage of time, place, unique cultures, and beautiful men and women was Irving Penn's greatest subject (and remains as such for photography itself). The portrait of two shabbily dressed American-Indian children shyly posing for the camera, their hands resting on an ornate European colonial-period table, is classic Irving Penn, a testament to his greatness and humane-ness as a photographer. It is everything the 20th century is about in one simple yet stunning image: Imperial colonialism and indigenous culture, The Old and The New, Rich and Poor, North and South, East and West. Irving Penn died on October 7, 2009 at the age of 92, his place in photographic history permanent and secure. An absolute "must-have" title for Irving Penn collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed and dated (in the year of publication) in black pen on the half-title page by the photographer: "Irving Penn 1991". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. As was his custom, Penn encircled his signature. This title is a great photography book. This is one of very few such signed and dated copies of the First Hardcover 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 subsequent printings or have serious flaws yet are priced as though they had collectible value. A rare signed copy thus. 470 plates. Irving Penn's "Moments Preserved" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER IRVING PENN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0679404910.

        Switzerland" from Harmonies of the Spheres: 10 Nations Rejoice. Autograph musical manuscript full score arrangement for wind band. Signed. 1991

      - Small folio (279 x 215 mm.). Unbound. 8 pp. Notated in pencil on 12-stave music paper, rectos only. An Egyptian-born American composer, performer, ethnomusicologist, and educator, El-Dabh came to the United States in 1950, becoming a part of the New York music scene that included Cage, Varèse, and Hovhaness. He went on to study composition with Krenek, Copland, Dallapiccola, and others. "El-Dabh's compositional style is influenced by Egyptian folk and traditional music. Frequently monodic, his works feature complex rhythms and much use of percussion. His career was launched in 1949 with a highly acclaimed performance of It is Dark and Damp on the Front (1948) at All Saints Cathedral, Cairo. In 1950 he made his début as a solo drummer, under the direction of Stokowski, in the first performance of Tahmeela. Other works include Clytemnestra (1958), One More Gaudy Night (1961), A Look at Lightning (1962) and Lucifer (1975), commissioned by Martha Graham; Sound and Light of the Pyramids of Giza (1960), written for the Cultural Ministry of the Egyptian Government and performed daily at the pyramids; and New Pharaoh's Suite, written for the Cleveland Museum of Art to accompany a visiting Ethiopian exhibit from the Louvre (1996). Spectrum no.1 'Symphonies in Sonic Vibration' (1955) and Leiyla and the Poet (1959) have been recorded." Denise A. Seachrist in Grove Music Online.An early pioneer of electronic music, El-Dabh composed one of the earliest known works of tape music, or "musique concrète," in 1944, The Expression of Zaar. He also scored four ballets for Martha Graham: Clytemnestra (1958), One More Gaudy Night (1961), A Look at Lightning (1962), and Lucifer (1975).Harmonies of the Spheres: 10 Nations Rejoice was commissioned for the Middfest International Celebration in Middletown, Ohio.
