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.

        SOCIAL CONTEXT

      NY: Double Elephant Editions, 1991. Fink, Larry. Folio, (1) p. text, plus 15 original silver prints (13 x 18 in.) archivally window-matted (19 x 23 in.). All housed in a cloth clamshell box. The box is bumped at the tips and foredge, and the cloth is slightly rubbed; there is one small 1/2 inch abrasion on rear and slight soiling. The photographs and mounts are in fine as new condition. Limited to 25 copies. Each photo SIGNED, titled, and editioned on the blank verso of the print. Fink studied at the New School of Social Research in New York, taking classes with Lisette Model and Alexey Brodovitch. He taught at the Parson's School of Design and the New School as well as Yale and Cooper Union. He describes his work as follows: "My photographs have been taken with intent to help the human revolution and to do it at the right moment in history. They will testify to the transformation. Such is my feeling. Such is my need." From the prospectus, which is laid in: "Larry Fink's photographs are best described under the rubric 'new social photography.' ...reliant on the styles of Robert Frank, Garry Winogrand and Diane Arbus, Fink's work reflects not only the mood of the period of American life that he photographs, but also the currency of the social and artistic forces and institutions that have developed and formed him as an artist." In this collection, Fink's photographs are of the "lower middle class" at gatherings and locales, bringing to mind the photos in CAFÉ LEHMITZ by Anders Petersen.

        The World Crisis, complete six-volume set in full leather

      Norwalk, Connecticut: Easton Press, 1991. Hardcover. Fine. This is a fine, full six-volume set of the magnificent Easton Press leather bound edition. The World Crisis is Winston Churchill's epic history of the First World War, in which he played such a critical, controversial, and varied role. Of The World Crisis, Frederick Woods wrote: "The volumes contain some of Churchill's finest writing, weaving the many threads together with majestic ease, describing the massive battles in terms which fitly combine relish of the literary challenge with an awareness of the sombre tragedy of the events." Churchill was in a special position to write this history, having served both in the Cabinet and on the Front. First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 until 1915, after the failure in the Dardanelles and the slaughter at Gallipoli, Churchill was scapegoated and forced to resign. He spent his political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Before war's end, Churchill was exonerated and rejoined the Government, but the stigma would linger. Churchill may have meant for his history of the First World War to clear his name, but his six volume masterwork far exceeds this purpose. This edition is one of the most aesthetically pleasing and reader-friendly editions to date. Easton Press publications are sought for their high production values. Standard features include full leather binding with raised spine bands, extensive gilt lettering and decoration, all edges gilt, satin ribbon page markers, archival paper, sewn pages, and moire fabric endsheets. This set is bound in full crimson pigskin with black title and author spine labels. Richard Langworth, author of A Connoisseur's Guide to the Books of Sir Winston Churchill, helped design this edition. Consequently, the contents of this Easton Press edition present an ideal combination of features from the many editions of this critically acclaimed work; the text is from the first English edition, while the photos are from the second American edition. The full color reprints of the original folding maps "are, if anything, better than the originals." (Langworth, p.112) Condition of this set is genuinely fine. The books are obviously unread, the bindings stiff, the pages crisp, the satin ribbon markers still in the same position originally placed when the books were shipped. The leather bindings are pristine, wtih only a trivial suggestion of shelf-wear to the bottom edges. The contents remain perfectly crisp and bright with no previous ownership marks. Please anticipate that this large, heavy set may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.19, Langworth p.111

        Madeleine Vionnet

      Tokyo: Kyuryudo Art Publishing Co., Ltd, 1991. Hardcover. Near Fine. 243 p. 44 cm. Glorious illustrations in colour and b&w, with many detail shots. Pattern pages for Vionnet's most well-known designs. Black hardcover. Corners slightly bumped. Dust wrapper has small stains and is rubbed. End papers lightly thumbed. Bottom corner of text block gently dented. Extremely rare, the Metropolitan Museum of Art has the only copy of this edition listed on WorldCat, and theirs is only the envelope of English translation later bound. This complete Japanese copy with dust wrapper includes the English translation packet in envelope, with English translation Preface by Jacque Griffe. Issey Miyake wrote the Preface for the Japanese text, and facilitated the later English edition in 1998. Lovely reproductions of photographs by Irving Penn, Robert Freson, Edward Steichen, Man Ray, Cecil Beaton, Andre Durst, and Horst P. Horst, among others. Modern detail photographs celebrate the clothes and bring you close to the garments. Vionnet is most famous for inventing the bias cut and transforming women's fashion in the 1920s. The text also indulges in exploring her enigmatic biography.
