        Visitor From The Underground - Limited Edition Print (Signed)

      1991. Print. New. Lithograph print by Carl Barks on Acid-free Paper. SIGNED NUMBERED PRINT. Size: 10" x 8" (254mm x 203mm). Visitor From Underground was Another Rainbow's first Carl Barks money bin lithograph -- large-size or miniature -- in eight years when it was released in 1991. It was an instant success and quickly sold out. It was also the only miniature money bin litho. In The Fine Art of Walt Disney's Donald Duck by Carl Barks, a slip-cased coffee table book, Barks historian Barbara Boatner wrote the following text about Carl's painting and what was happening in a Visitor From Underground: "Worse than the Beagle Boys are little varmints that nibble thousand-dollar bills or squirrel away round, shiny objects … but Scrooge's helpers are too tired from a long day in the south forty to even notice an intruder. "In the centre of the painting is one of Scrooge's many lanterns, which, Barks explains, the old miser used ‘because he owned all those oil wells. He wouldn't pay an electric bill when he could light his money with some very cheap kerosene that he already owned … unless, of course, he owned the electric company, too.' The money bin scenes, Barks continues, are popular in part ‘because they give people the feeling of looking right into the source of all the wealth in the world.' For the ducks who have to till Scrooge's fields, though, the three cubic acres of cash act mainly as a mild soporific. "In the fall of 1973, shortly after the sale of this painting, its current (and present) owner gathered with the Barks and several others at the nearby home of a friend. Late in the evening Carl got the collector off to the side and confided -- with a twinkle in his eye -- that ‘Visitor From Underground' isn't the real name of that painting. I just put that title on there because I had to call it something. Its real name is, When the **** Hit the Fan.' Obviously, a story for posterity. Visitor From Underground and text about the painting are printed as a double-page spread in the Fine Art Book (plate 41, pages 150-151, chronological number 51, Barks' 12th oil painting from 1973). Visitor From Underground was printed in continuous tone by the Black Box of Chicago and is a limited signed edition of 595.

        Group of four letters to historian and biographer, John Lukacs: TLS, 2 ALsS, ANS

      Original manuscripts. Very Good. (1) TLS, 1-1/2pp, single-spaced, quarto, from 1170 Fifth Avenue, New York, November 7, 1991. In part: "....Your DUEL is a stunning piece of scholarship....You have done a masterpiece of historical writing. Only someone who has toiled to compose a book can perceive the art with which this extraordinary narrative is shaped....The scope, too, is remarkable....One could extract your judgments, characterizations, estimates, and conclusions and make a small book of aphorisms....Present-day Americans do not understand any politics but their own....On the point of Roosevelt's long uncertainty, I happen to have some information you could not know, because it has not yet been published. In 1941 FDR used Rene de Chambrun as propagandist....Yours with admiration and affection, Jacques." (2) ALS, 1p, octavo, in blue ink, from his Fifth Avenue address, Nov 12 /94. "....This autumn has been a series of ailments....It was good to know that you've finished your extraordinary book. Your rate of production is really splendid, and the quality of the product certainly deserves the recognition that was expressed in the Pennsylvania History Magazine. Doesn't this latest work of yours qualify for the you-know-what prize?...Affectionate regards, Jacques." (3) ALS, 1p, 12mo, in blue ink, Nov 12/95. "The letters are very good indeed. Coming from academics in a hoity-toity university, they are a tribute to your art & scholarship....I hope you can use the approving words to get a publisher....Mississippi is not at all a bad Press....My health & energy are returning slowly....All the best, Jacques." (4) ANS, 1/2p, handwritten note on an engraved announcement, from San Antonio, Mar. 9, 2007. "...Thank you for your fine book about G.K. [George Kennan]. It does him full justice. He was a good & great man. Trust you are well. Ever, Jacques." [This note is especially poignant in that it is handwritten on an announcement titled "Jacques Barzun to his Friends," telling them that a "lack of finger control" prevents him from answering their letters.] Barzun, recently deceased, was a French-born American historian of culture and ideas, winner of America's Presidential Medal of Freedom, and knight of the French Legion of Honor. Along with his friends and correspondent John Lukacs, Barzun helped establish the modern discipline of cultural history.

To attain this effect, Russian newspapers were cut into minute pieces and incorporated with rags and cotton pulp with individual Cyrillic letters floated onto the mixture before the process was completed. Illustrated with six etchings by Yuri Kuper printed in Paris on Hahnemuhle paper by Aldo Crommelynck, whose superlative techniques, inherited from the European crafts tradition, have been used by such artists as Picasso, Jasper Johns, and Jim Dine.

        CHARLIE WATTS, HALCYON HOTEL, MARCH 1991

      United Kingdom: Jill Furmanovsky Photography, 1991. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/No Dust Jacket, As Issued.. United Kingdom: Jill Furmanovsky Photography, 1991. Hardcover. Fine/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. 1 pages. Rare Charlie Watts collectible item. Gallery-Framed Vintage Photographic Print. A framed and authenticated copy of Jill Furmanovsky&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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. <b><i> 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 pristine beauty. The only other copy is available 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&#39;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. </b></i> 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. (SEE ALSO "ROD STEWART" FRAMED GALLERY PRINT IN OUR CATALOG).
