        The Year of the Death of Ricardo Reis

      Orlando:: Harcourt Brace and Company,, 1991. Orlando: Harcourt Brace and Company, 1991. First American edition of the Nobel-Prize winning author's second book to be translated into English. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed and dated by Saramago. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Uncommon signed.The Portugese writer Jose Saramago is the recipient of both the 1995 Camões Prize and 1998 Nobel Prize in Literature. Harold Bloom described him as "the greatest living novelist" and considers him to be "a permanent part of the Western canon (Evans, 2002). The Year of the Death of Ricardo Reis is "[t]he greatest of his novels" (New Statesman), "[a] capacious, funny, threatening novel" (New York Times Review of Books). Saramago "has created a body of work of luminous power: ironic, intellectually playful, dense and strange" (Scotsman). "A patient, old fashioned novel full of dialogue and detail, mist, streets, squares, statues, meals, rooms, neighbors, life in a particular hotel of modest pretentions. Ao much 'reality,' carefully documented, lovingly piled up" (The New York Times).

        MY SISTER-LIFE

      [New York]:: Limited Edition Club, (1991).. [New York]:: Limited Edition Club. (1991). First of this edition. One of 250 numbered copies SIGNED by the illustrator, Yuri Kuper. Translated by Mark Rudman. "In Russian poetry, Boris Pasternak's My Sister-Life is the equivalent of The Waste Land, Spring and All, and Harmonium. But it is also accessible to the general reader, and belongs on a slender shelf of great love poems...Pasternak is an uncompromisingly complex poetic stylist, and his meticulous attention to structure, etymology, and the phonetic qualities of words makes his poetry a formidable challenge for the translator. Mark Rudman renders Pasternak's poetic masterpiece with verve and intelligence" (from cover of recent Northwestern University edition). Large folio (16 x 23") with gray goatskin spine and treated handmade paper boards using the same paper as the text. Housed in a slipcase of gray linen-rayon. Printed letterpress on paper made by hand to resemble the sort of stock produced in the 1920s in the Soviet Union. Illustrated with six original etchings by Yuri Kuper SIGNED by the illustrator on the colophon page, and this copy with each etching signed in pencil by Yuri Kuper -- though not issued as such. One of the smallest limitations of the club. Monthly Letter laid in. A beautiful edition printed on handmade paper recycling various Cyrillic printings. Kuper's work is found in the permanent collections of MoMA, Moscow Museum of Fine Arts, Fonds National d'Art Contemporain in Paris, etc. Publishers' newsletter laid in. Fine in a fine slipcase.

Photocopied typescript of Robbins' 1994 novel, written in the second person, with the "you" being a stockbroker on a weekend after a market crash. Incomplete at 268 pages, representing just over half of the published text, but bearing both photocopied holograph corrections and several holograph corrections in Robbins' hand, most of which made it into the finished book.

A bit of edge creasing to some of the pages; on the whole very near fine. Provenance: a Robbins collector who was also Robbins' jeweler. An interesting look at the work-in-progress. . First Edition.

        Juan Lara: Retrospectiva Mexicana

      Mexico: n.p. [Casa Domecq por la Federacion Nacional de Charos], 1991. First edition. Illustrated gray cloth. A near fine copy with some minor soiling to the front board in a near fine dust jacket but for a few tiny tears to the top edge. Plates crisp and bright. A handsome copy. Sm. 4to. (9.5 x 11 inches). Illus. with over 200 color plates + 11 color & b/w photos. A thorough retrospective of the impressionist Andalusian artist Juan Lara (1921-1995). The first section of forty paintings (commission by Casa Domecq) documents the world of Charreria (the Mexican festive event that incorporates equestrian competitions and demonstrations, specific costumes and horse trappings, music, and food). It is perhaps the best representation of its subject in the latter half of the 20th century. A portion of this section was last exhibited at the Autry Museum in 2001 and is now housed at Cultural Institute Domecq. Other sections include "Mercadillos y Pueblos Rosas Mexicanos", "Pueblos Blancos Andaluces," "Haciendas de Ganado Bravo," "El Caballo en Mexico," "Antologica en el Puerto- Espana," and "La Casa Domecq," a series of sketchs. Very hard to find. OCLC and RLIN list only 7 copies together and we have seen none for sale in the last ten years.

        TYPED LETTER - Signed

      1991 - Typed 8.5"x11" letter on Staubach Company letterhead. It is dated September 20, 1991 and is signed "Roger Staubach" in black ink. The letter content is as follows " Dear Bob, I appreciated your letter regarding your class project in your career studies class. To answer your question, I have a commercial real estate company called The Staubach Company. We are based in Dallas, but have offices in 12 cities throughout the United States and service clients nationally. We focus on representing the user of office, retail and industrial space. I began my career in real estate while I was still playing football and worked with the Henry S. Miller Company until I formed my own in 1978, so my induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1985 didn't really open any doors for me in this area. However, the Hall of Fame is a significant honor for personally and it probably helped to keep my name out in the public as far as speaking requests and endorsement programs go. Sincerely, Roger Staubach". Signed in black ink and is excellent condition. Roger Staubach joined the Dallas Cowboys as a 27-year-old rookie in 1969 and didn't win the regular quarterbacking job from until his third season in 1971. But for the nine seasons he was in command of the potent Cowboys attack, the Dallas played in six NFC championship games, winning four of them, and also scored victories in Super Bowls VI and XII. The 6-3, 200-pound Staubach wound up his career after the 1979 season with an 83.4 passing rating, the best mark by an NFL passer up to that time. His career chart shows 1,685 completions in 2,958 passing attempts, which were good for 22,700 yards and 153 touchdowns. Making Staubach particularly dangerous was his ability to scramble out of trouble ¿ his 410 career rushes netted him 2,264 yards for a 5.5-yard average and 20 touchdowns. He led the NFL in passing four times. He was also an All-NFC choice five times and selected to play in six Pro Bowls. Staubach first starred as a quarterback at the U. S. Naval Academy, where he was a Heisman Trophy winner as a junior in 1963. Following his graduation, he spent a mandatory four years on active duty, including service in Vietnam, before he was able to turn his attention to pro football. During his finest years with the Cowboys, Roger had the reputation for making the big play. He was the MVP of Super Bowl VI and provided the offensive spark in a defense dominated Super Bowl XII victory. In 1972, he missed most of the season with a separated shoulder but he relieved Craig Morton in a divisional playoff against San Francisco and threw two touchdown passes in the last 90 seconds to defeat the 49ers, 30-28. With that performance, he won back his regular job and did not relinquish it again during his career.

        SWEYNHEYM & PANNARTZ AND THE ORIGINS OF PRINTING IN ITALY, GERMAN TECHNOLOGY AND ITALIAN HUMANISM IN RENAISSANCE ROME

      McMinnville, OR: Phillip J. Pirages, 1991. cloth, clamshell box. 36463|31789|33382|39587/SH. Bird & Bull Press. folio. cloth, clamshell box. 128, (2) pages. First edition, one of 231 copies of total edition of 239. Aside from Gutenberg and his immediate associates, there are no figures more important in the early history of printing than Sweynheym and Pannartz, the earliest printers outside Germany. First at Subiaco and later in Rome, they produced an imposing catalogue of first editions of ancient authors, which for the first time systematically exploited the potential of the new technology as a means for disseminating humanistic texts to a large audience. This volume is the first book to create from the available information a broadly based and detailed picture of the activities of these two printers. The work examines in a full and careful way their lives and achievements within the context of their newly developed craft as well as the humanistic environment they encountered in Rome in the 1460s and 1470s. In the process of his account, Professor Hall challenges a number of widely held assumptions about the origins of printing in Italy. The book is printed on luxurious mouldmade Frankfurt paper by Henry Morris at the Bird & Bull Press and is accompanied by a large folio Sweynheym & Pannartz leaf from the 1471 printing of Nicholas of Lyra's Postilla super totam Bibliam. The 14 1/2 x 10 1/2" leaves, which were purchased as a disbound and discontinuous fragment of one volume of Lyra's five-volume work, are in remarkably bright and fresh condition, and they show to good advantage the famous and beautiful type Sweynheym and Pannartz first used in 1467, recognized now as the earliest truly Roman font. Even though Sweynheym and Pannartz produced more than fifty different editions, their press runs were normally only 275 copies. Consequently, their books are now very rare, and complete copies are extravagantly priced. The present leaf book offers an uncommon opportunity for research libraries as well as collectors interested in early printing or in private press work and the book arts to obtain an example of the work of Sweynheym and Pannartz in a form that is handsomely produced and at the same time not prohibitively expensive. The book and leaf, which is secured in a mylar envelope behind a hinged cloth mat, are contained in an impressive (15 1/2 x 11 3/4") navy blue folding cloth box constructed of acid-free materials by Nancy Cuthbert. Title page printed in black, red, and blue.
