        Large Collection of Missionary Publications in ca. 100 Languages.

      West Africa, India, etc., 1681-1991. - Significant collection of 333 bibles, expositions, scriptural lessons, biblical school primers, and other extremely rare products of missionary presses. Many items unrecorded in Darlow & Moule, and several important 19th century works unrecorded in the OCLC database of worldwide libraries. The collection's main strengths lie in 19th and early 20th century publications produced for/in Africa and India (some 89 Indian and 58 African works) as well as hundreds of 20th century works in almost 80 further languages, ranging from Rarotongan to Miskito. Generally in original or period bindings and often with ownership markings of missionary societies, the collection paints a fascinating picture of missionary efforts of the 19th and 20th centuries. Highlights include an extremely rare edition of the New Testament printed in Tranquebar, South India in the Tamil language in 1758 by a Danish missionary, Bartholomaeus Ziegenbalg (this very copy fetching nearly $4000 at Sotheby's in 2000) and a wonderful colour-illustrated edition of Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress translated into the Niger-Congo (Dualla) language in 1885. - More than simply offshoots of the colonial enterprise, missionary movements set up their own presses in colonies such as Cameroon and Calcutta and began printing titles such as the present ones, usually in runs of 1000 or less. These publications often represent the first appearance of native languages in print form, shaping future efforts at graphic and textual representation of mainly spoken languages. Interestingly, many of the present volumes also represent the first language guides to several African and Indian languages, prepared by missionary presses to facilitate the conversion of natives. "Much of this activity stemmed from the importance placed by Protestants on a literate population which could read and study Scripture for themselves" (Weber, p. 2). The present collection clearly demonstrates how missionary directives, while often fueled primarily by a desire to 'save souls' and 'convert heathens', also concerned themselves with children's education, health, the management of schools, agriculture, mothercraft, and language learning. - The importance of the printing press and its products to the missionary efforts of the 19th and 20th century has rarely been directly addressed in the secondary literature. Robert E. Frykenberg's "Christianity in India: from beginnings to the present", for example, hardly touches on missionary presses at all, perhaps due to the copious and diffuse nature their printings. Yet the importance attached by contemporaries to the power of the press should not be underestimated. Writing in the Baptist Missionary Magazine of 1840, a Mr Crocker expressed the heartfelt need for printing press in the West African colonies: "That God designs to employ the press as an important instrument in diffusing the light of truth, we have abundant evidence [.] It is true, in this country the people cannot read. But the press is required to furnish them books that they may learn to read [.] It seems desirable that boys of great promise should have the stores of English literature open to them." His petition was duly granted several years later, when the first mission press was established on the Cameroonian mainland in 1844 (cf. early examples from the "Mission Press, Western Africa" in this collection). - Many of the present works were acquired from what must have been the greatest such institutional collection of its time, the library of the Baptist Mission House in London. - Of the utmost rarity are not only the early imprints of African missionary presses, but also the briefer, soft-bound pamphlets issued by these presses whose survival rate must be minimal. We find numerous examples in this collection of such pamphlets which are either unrecorded or recorded only in the Darlow and Moule collection at Cambridge University Library. - Detailed catalogue available upon request.

        Days [Signed by Bowles, Mick Jagger, Patricia Highsmith, Mohammed Mrabet, and 15 Others]

      NY: Ecco. (1991). The first American edition of Bowles's Tangier journal from the years 1987-1989. Bowles had never kept a regular journal until he was asked to do so by Daniel Halpern for an issue of Antaeus devoted to writers' journals and notebooks. The time period coincided in part with the filming of the movie adaptation of Bowles's novel, The Sheltering Sky, and the journals track not only the daily mundane events of life but a raft of celebrity visits, as well as the occasional bits of shocking Moroccan violence, of the sort that informed Bowles's own novel. Bowles had always been, in the words of Gore Vidal, "famous among those who were famous," and this journal provides evidence of that. This is a unique copy, signed by Bowles (six times) and by 18 other members of Bowles's cast of characters (some more than once), including: Mick Jagger, Patricia Highsmith (author), Claude-Nathalie Thomas (Bowles' French translator), Mohammed Mrabet (Moroccan writer and painter whose stories Bowles translated), Rodrigo Rey Rosa (Guatemalan writer whose works Bowles translated), Buffie Johnson (artist, longtime friend of Paul and Jane Bowles), Gavin Lambert (British author and biographer), Abdelwahab El Abdellaoui (Moroccan student and friend), Abdelouahaid Boulaich (Bowles' assistant), Steve Diamond, Kenneth Lisenbee, Cherie Nutting (photographer and friend), Bachir el-Attar (of the Master Musicians of Jajouka), Gloria Kirby (lifelong Tangier resident and benefactor of the American Legation there, including creating the Paul Bowles Room), David Herbert (British socialite, "The Queen of Tangier"), Mercedes Guitta (owner of Guitta's, a restaurant frequented by Bowles), Gavin Young (British author and journalist), and Phillip Ramey, a composer and close friend of Bowles who gathered the signatures over a ten-year period and who appears several times in the text himself. A unique volume, which locates Bowles in the matrix of artists, celebrities and friends who had surrounded him for nearly a half century at that point. It is unlikely there is any other single book or document that so clearly and extensively provides a view of the rich assortment of individuals who made up Bowles's social and artistic circle. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with a bit of fading to the spine lettering. First Edition. Hardcover.

        CHARLIE WATTS, HALCYON HOTEL, MARCH 1991 - Rare Pristine Copy of The Framed Limited Edition Print - ONLY OTHER EDITIONED COPY ONLINE

      United Kingdom: Jill Furmanovsky Photography, 1991 - 1st Printing. Signed. 1 pages. Published in 1991. Rare Charlie Watts collectible item. Gallery-Framed Vintage Photographic Print. A framed and authenticated copy of Jill Furmanovsky's "Charlie Watts, Halcyon Hotel, March 1991". Limited Edition of 30 numbered, stamped, and signed copies of the beautifully toned silver-gelatin print. As such, it is one of the smallest limitations of a vintage print ever produced. A magnificent production by Jill Furmanovsky: Oversize format. Museum-quality fiber-print, printed directly from the original negative. The tones are so rich and warm that they must be seen to be believed. Full framed size is 22 X 27 inches. Numbered, stamped, and signed by the photographer. Presents the single most celebrated photograph by Jill Furmanovsky, possibly the most celebrated photographer who specializes in portraits of rock music celebrities. The classic profile of a pensive, serene-looking Charlie Watts is surely one of the greatest portraits ever taken of a rock star, particularly one associated with the most Dionysian version of popular music. "I entered the London Observer's Portrait Award with this picture and won First Prize in 1992. To my great delight, Charlie wrote to congratulate me. Representing the bedrock of rock, Charlie Watts has aged immaculately" (Jill Furmanovsky). Artists photographed in her 30-year career include many of the biggest names in rock music: Pink Floyd, Bob Marley, Eric Clapton, Blondie, The Police, Led Zeppelin, The Pretenders, Bob Dylan, and Oasis. She has also made music videos for Oasis and The Pretenders. Furmanovsky's books, "The Moment: 25 Years of Rock Photography" and "Was There Then: A Photographic Journey" are seminal works in the genre. An absolute "must-have" title for Charlie Watts, The Rolling Stones, and rock music collectors. This original silver-gelatin print is Number 15, and it is very prominently and beautifully numbered and signed in black ink-pen and stamped on recto by Jill Furmanovsky. This print is now sold out and highly collectible. As far as we know, this is one of only two such copies still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. The only other copy available online is from RockArchive London for 6, 000 pounds (roughly, $9, 500). As one of the most serious and respected dealers in rock music memorabilia, they are not kidding. Don't take our word for it, look them up online. This is a reasonably-priced copy of exactly the same classic. A rare signed copy thus. Winner of The Jane Brown Observer Portrait Award for this Charlie Watts portrait in 1992 and "Woman of the Year for Music" in 1998. One of the finest living photographers. A fine collectible copy.

        Brideship and Gulls. Illustrated by Susan Weil.

      Vincent FitzGerald & Company, New York 1991 - One of 25 copies, text on Apta Royale Laid Richard de Bas paper (made in 1938), images on Musee paper, backed on custom-made papers by Paul Wong on Dieu Donne' Papermill. Page size: 16 inches x 16 inches. Bound by Zahra Partovi in Coptic-style mauve-grey silk over boards, box by David Bourbeau, Thistle Bindery, fine. Six original line etchings by Susan Weil are hand-painted in watercolor and gouache with gold-leafing throughout, each mounted on museum board. These images surround the 40-page text when sitting in the box and when lifted out become three-dimensional paintings. There are also two original collages in the text and on the boards of the cover which is printed in three colors. The calligraphy is by Jerry Kelly and the letterpress is by Dan Keleher at Wild Carrot Letterpress. Susan Weil's third Joyce book takes an excerpt from Finnegan's Wake and it is as much as tour de force as her previous two. The box itself is a piece of sculpture, and Susan's paintings are fully realized free-standing works of art; yet, all combine to form a harmonious whole book. See an Image. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Photographs 1970-1990

      New York: HarperCollins. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. FIRST EDITION, SIGNED BY LEIBOVITZ on title. 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 photo-pictorial boards, original printed glassine dust jacket. A few thin surface wrinkles on rear board (as often), otherwise fine.

      Pinecone Press 1991-2005, Santa Barbara, CA. - Collection of 7 of Sherwin Carlquist's photography books of male nudes in natural landscapes:- Natural Man (1991): 1/2000. Quarto. [4]pp (Title and Preface), 124 leaves (Plates), [4]pp (List of photographs). Original photo-illustrated dust-jacket over black cloth, with silver lettering on spine and front cover. "The Ansel Adams of the male nude," Sherwin Carlquist brings together in exciting new ways two subjects traditionally treated separately by photography: landscape and the human figure. Carlquist's photographs have the textural richness, exquisite detail, and tonal richness of the great landscape photographs. His images also have the compositional care and moody expressiveness of fine figure photographs. He has met the challenges of outdoor figure photography with freshness and ingenuity, and his visions are certain to influence a new generation of photographers. This volume is splendidly illustrated 124 b/w photographic reproductions of nude men. First edition limited to 2,000 copies, of which this is No. 446. Minor rubbing and shelf wear along edges of dust-jacket. DJ in overall good, binding and interior in very good condition. - Man Naturally (1996): 1) First copy: 1/2000. Quarto. [6]pp (Title and Preface), 212pp (Plates), [6]pp (List of photographs). Original photo-illustrated dust-jacket over tan cloth, with black lettering on spine and front cover. Title page signed by the author. Following the success of his photographic essay "Natural Man," Sherwin Carlquist has expanded his coverage of the male nude in "Man Naturally." Featuring 212 b/w photographs, this volume explores the interrelationship between the male body and a landscape, integrating these two elements in new and ingenious ways in order to produce compositions of lasting value. First edition limited to 2,000 copies, of which this is No. 331. Moderate rubbing and shelf wear on dust-jacket. DJ in overall good- to good, binding and interior in very good condition. 2) Second copy: This second copy is not signed nor numbered. Minor shelf wear on dust-jacket. DJ in overall good, binding and interior in very good condition.- The Natural Man (1999): 1/2000. Quarto. [6]pp (Title and Preface), 210pp (Plates), [6]pp (List of photographs). Original photo-illustrated dust-jacket over black cloth, with white lettering on spine and front cover. Frontispiece. "The Natural Man" extends the efforts of Carlquist's two previous books by introducing compositions in which the landscape dominates as well as those in which a body dominates and adds a few novel compositions: panels of bodies (rather than the entire figure) combined with vignettes of the adjacent landscape. Textures of rock, wood, leaves, clouds, and shadows are introduced throughout the book in ways that are both classical and yet as new as today. This volume is splendidly illustrated with 210 b/w photographic reproductions of nude men. First edition limited to 2,000 copies, of which this is No. 647. Dust-jacket slightly sunned and rubbed along edges. DJ in overall good, binding and interior in very good condition.- Man/Nature (2002): 1/2000. Quarto. [6]pp (Title and Preface), 212pp (Plates), [6]pp (List of photographs). Original photo-illustrated dust-jacket over tan cloth, with black lettering on spine and front cover. Frontispiece. In this newest addition to Sherwin Carlquist's series, there is an effort to depict textures and forms with even greater diversity and richness. Landscapes used in these photographs include some of the most striking in southern Utah, in which sandstones and other rocks are intricately sculptured by wind and water. Californian landscapes with equally intense textural features supply the majority of the photographs. Extensive use is made of weathered wood, leaf shadows, and foliage (especially pine needles) as a way of connecting the strength of the male figure to the natural landscape. The models are diverse yet complement the scenery in which they are photographed; 28 models are r [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Seasons, the "Summer, State II" green (Rare Proof Copy: Limited Ed. original lithograph by Jasper Johns)

(VERY IMPORTANT NEW NOTE: in the catalogue on page 50 under the title "frontispiece" it states the lithograph is 11-1/2 x 8-1/2in. BUT in fact -according to the director of Brooke Alexander Gallery- that is actually a typo. They produced some proof copies that were 11-1/2 x 8-1/2in but when it went to press they cut the catalogues & lithographs to 11 x 8-1/2in (29.2x21.6), and all the 3,000 copies are this size except for the proof copies. Also the illustrated wrap around cover was also created by the artist especially for this publication, printed on Rives paper at ULAE, and folds out to the paper size: 33 x 11in; this is the limited trade edition of 3,000 unnumbered copies; the book is not signed; also the catalogue's covers by Johns is a rework of THE SEASONS in many different versions (the lithograph is still attached to spine as issued but carefully be removed for framing), and text by Roberta Bernstein; the book has 57pp, 52 illustrations (some in color and full page), with text descriptions; Print Exhibitions and Bibliography in rear of catalogue; wrappers are clean, the lithograph frontispiece and other plates in the catalogue are in EXCELLENT COND.
