        Diccionario Grande De La Lengua De Michoacan

      Fimax Publicistas, Mexico City 1991 - 2 volumes: 704 pages with tables; 848 pages. Octavo (9" x 6 3/4") bound in original wrappers. Compiled by Warren J Benedict. First edition limited to 500 copies. In the fall of 1965, Warren found in the John Carter Brown Library, a very incomplete manuscript dictionary of the Tarascan language . In the catalog of the library it was indicated as a work of Father Gilberti, who first publish the grammar (1558) and dictionary (1559) of the language. But the manuscript dictionary was very different togthan that of the dictionary published by Gilberti. Warren considered copying the document but because of the poor physical condition of the manuscript, decided against doing so. In 1977, when Warren began to investigate further the life and writings of Brother Mathurin Gilberti, he found in a bibliographic directory quotation from a manuscript in the Latin American Library at Tulane, indicating that it was a "Vocabulary Castilian-Tarasco-Tarasco and Castilian" written by Brother Gilberti. When asked about the content of the manuscript, he was assured that the manuscript was published the Gilberti vocabulary. He found that not only was it different in many ways from the published vocabulary of Gilbert,i but was a full version of which the dictionary the manuscript of the John Carter Brown contained only the last part. Since the manuscript in the Tulane library completely, legible and without major flaws, it was possible to begin serious editorial work. So Warren called the manuscript of Tulane Text A. It consists of two parts: the Spanish-Tarasco part which has 130 leaves and the Tarasco-Spanish Part of 150 leaves. There was a note by the famous Mexican bibliophile Nicolás León indicating the provenance of the manuscript. This manuscript was an unpublished document in the hand of Father Gilberti. This vocabulary was produced after the one printed in Mexico in 1559 and therefore more copious and corrected. It was found among the books belonging to Mendoza in Guadalajara, 1913, and bought in the Archdiocese. With the stamp on the title page is the"Sociedad [Mexicana] de Geografía y Estadística"; but it is believed that it was part of the Mendoza's collection, because no files appear in the receipt proving that it had been donated in 1913, noted by Leon. Having satisfied his conscience, Leon sold the manuscript to William Gates, who in turn sold several photographic prints, which are cited in the Newberry Library, the Peabody Library, and the Library of Congress. In 1924 Tulane bought the collection. The binding of the manuscript has a stamp of "Gates Collection" on the back of the cover. The original manuscript is written throughout in the same hand, but has corrections and additions between the lines. Many of them are the original scribe, but there are also many additions in another hand, especially at the beginning of the Spanish-Tarasco part, which may conflict sharply with the original. The manuscript of the John Carter Brown Library, here called the Type B, consisting of 148 leaves. This work is the compilation of all this material. Lightly soiled with gently bumped corners and light edge wear, else a very good copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        My Favorite Summer 1956.

      New York: Doubleday, 1991. Signed limited first edition. Octavo, original leather. Signed by Mickey Mantle in gold ink on the front panel. Laid in is the information regarding that Mickey Mantle signed a limited number for the publisher, Doubleday. In near fine condition. Uncommon. Mickey Mantle, like Babe Ruth and Joe DiMaggio before him, was arguably the most beloved player of his time in New York, and in this look back at his greatest year, written with New York Daily News sportswriter Pepe, one understands why he was so popular. In 1956 the Yankee centerfielder won the Triple Crown, batting .353 to beat Ted Williams, knocking in 130 runs to beat Al Kaline and hitting 52 home runs to beat everybody. He won the Most Valuable Player award and figured importantly in the World Series, chiefly because of a catch he made to preserve Don Larsen's perfect game. Mantle writes as well of his notorious escapades with Whitey Ford and Billy Martin and of his special relationship with manager Casey Stengel, but what readers will carry away is the picture of a fierce competitor who also seems to be a warm and generous-hearted human being.

        Automobiles Voisin 1919-1958.

      London White Mouse Editions 1991 - First and limited numbered edition of only 2000 printed, (although 3500 were planned), this copy numbered 1671, landscape 4to., 312pp., numerous vintage photographic illustrations with French text, (together with a separate saddle-stitched English translation by Peter Hull also published in 1991, 64pp., publisher's blue leatherette, the upper cover mounted with a stunning silver metal intaglio plaque, rubbing to head of spine, else fine, both books housed in original decorative slip-case, which is a little worn and chipped from protecting the superb content. The History of Avions Voisin - cars for the French President, Josephine Baker, Rudolph Valentino and H. G. Wells, dates from 1919 when Gabriel Voisin established his luxury car business, producing some of the most original and potent vehicles of the 1920s, cars designed for function and efficiency that eschewed all the conventional tricks of the stylist. The special merits of the Voisin design were amply demonstrated in the Touring Grand Prix of July 1922, in which Voisin cars came home first, second and third place. The Voisins of the 1930s, including the legendary straight-twelve, the engine of which encroached on the driving compartment in the interests of perfect weight distribution, were cloaked in coachwork whose bizarre appearance has perhaps been softened by the passage of time but were the subject of much controversy in their day, even in France (which was the home of eccentric bodywork at that period).

      New York, NY: Lococo Mulder, 1991. Limited First Edition. Hardcover; Folded Sheet. Fine/ Very Fine. A catalog of artworks & accompanying text on the title subject by William S. Burroughs, the immortal Beat-&-Beyond innovator/subverter- who certainly knew a thing or two about these topics. As noted in Eric C. Shoaf's WSB Collector's guide, this was published as "...the trade edition in cloth covered boards without dust jacket as issued, one of 2,000 copies. There was also a signed and numbered limited edition of 150 copies bound in full leather. Cover features an original piece of wood "shotgun art" by Burroughs. Frontispiece photo of Burroughs aiming a shotgun by Robert Mapplethorpe. Features reproductions of Burroughs' paintings illustrating the "seven deadly sins," with text by him...Though all copies of the book have the printed page with "Luxe Edition of 150 copies" this often creates confusion among collectors. But only the limited copies were bound in leather, and were signed and numbered by hand. In addition, there was a boxed portfolio of the same title, each with the seven prints and seven sheets of text, and each print numbered, signed, and dated. The edition includes 90 boxed sets, 10 artist proofs, 4 hors commerce, 3 printer's proofs, and 1 right to print. All published by Lococo-Mulder in NYC Sept. 1991."

        The Legendary poet and photographer "Allen Ginsberg" - photographed in London, 1971.

      1991. London, c. 1991. Vintage print of the original Photograph on archival paper. Image: 24 cm x 33,5 cm / Framed: 43,5 x 53,5 cm. Original photograph, from the library and personal archive of irish photographer John Minihan. With John's copyright-stamp verso. Signed and titled by John Minihan. Beautifully framed. John Minihan is an Irish photographer, born in Dublin in 1946 and raised in Athy, County Kildare. At the age of 12 he was brought to live in London, and went on to become an apprentice photographer with the Daily Mail. At the age of 15 he won the Evening Standard amateur photography competition. At 21 he became the youngest staff photographer for the Evening Standard. For thirty years he remained in London, returning every year to his hometown of Athy to record the people and their daily lives.nnThe work of Minihan in Athy makes up a large part of his canon. Minihan began taking photos in Athy when he was 16. The photos are an attempt to document the lives of the ordinary people of the town in their day to day business and also in times of joy and sadness, notably during the wake of a woman called Katy Tyrrell.nIn between documenting Athy on visits home, Minihan continued his career on Fleet Street, which included the iconic snap of the 19-year-old Lady Diana Spencer in the garden of the nursery at which she worked, the morning sun to her back, her legs in silhouette through her skirt. Diana had just been announced as the Prince of Wales's love interest and photographers raced to take her photo, Minihan having the fortune to turn up first.nOver the years Minihan developed a close relationship with many writers and his photographs of Samuel Beckett show a particular affinity between the two men. Minihans photos of Beckett are some of his best known, one in particular is described as one of the greatest photos of the twentieth century. William S. Burroughs once referred to Minihan as "a painless photographer".nnMinihan is perhaps best known for his photographs of Samuel Beckett. Minihan first expressed a desire to photograph Beckett in 1969, following Becketts winning of the Nobel Prize for literature, having noticed that all the available photos of Beckett were of a poor quality;nn 'We were running a story but discovered there were only two very vague images of Beckett taken many years before. It was like he didn't exist - that was the moment I decided I wanted to meet this man and take his photograph.'nnMinihan first encountered Beckett in London in 1980, while Beckett was working on a production of one of his own plays, Endgame. Minihan met Beckett in the Hyde Park hotel and showed him some of his photos of Athy to break the ice. The two met on a number of occasions over the next few years, but it was not until 1985 that they met in Paris. They arranged to meet in the restaurant of the Hotel PLM, a regular haunt of Beckett. At ten to five, with the light fading, Minihan took the photo that would go on to be called by some as the photograph of the twentieth century.

        Writer Tom Wolfe - Photographed at the BBC - London, 1991.

      1991. London, 1991. Original, Vintage Photograph on archival paper. Image: 19 cm x 28 cm / Framed: 36 cm x 46 cm. Fantastic vintage photograph of Wolfe, from the library of irish photographer John Minihan. With John's copyright-stamp verso. Signed and titled by John Minihan. Beautifully framed. John Minihan is an Irish photographer, born in Dublin in 1946 and raised in Athy, County Kildare. At the age of 12 he was brought to live in London, and went on to become an apprentice photographer with the Daily Mail. At the age of 15 he won the Evening Standard amateur photography competition. At 21 he became the youngest staff photographer for the Evening Standard. For thirty years he remained in London, returning every year to his hometown of Athy to record the people and their daily lives.nnThe work of Minihan in Athy makes up a large part of his canon. Minihan began taking photos in Athy when he was 16. The photos are an attempt to document the lives of the ordinary people of the town in their day to day business and also in times of joy and sadness, notably during the wake of a woman called Katy Tyrrell.nIn between documenting Athy on visits home, Minihan continued his career on Fleet Street, which included the iconic snap of the 19-year-old Lady Diana Spencer in the garden of the nursery at which she worked, the morning sun to her back, her legs in silhouette through her skirt. Diana had just been announced as the Prince of Wales's love interest and photographers raced to take her photo, Minihan having the fortune to turn up first.nOver the years Minihan developed a close relationship with many writers and his photographs of Samuel Beckett show a particular affinity between the two men. Minihans photos of Beckett are some of his best known, one in particular is described as one of the greatest photos of the twentieth century. William S. Burroughs once referred to Minihan as "a painless photographer".nnMinihan is perhaps best known for his photographs of Samuel Beckett. Minihan first expressed a desire to photograph Beckett in 1969, following Becketts winning of the Nobel Prize for literature, having noticed that all the available photos of Beckett were of a poor quality;nn 'We were running a story but discovered there were only two very vague images of Beckett taken many years before. It was like he didn't exist - that was the moment I decided I wanted to meet this man and take his photograph.'nnMinihan first encountered Beckett in London in 1980, while Beckett was working on a production of one of his own plays, Endgame. Minihan met Beckett in the Hyde Park hotel and showed him some of his photos of Athy to break the ice. The two met on a number of occasions over the next few years, but it was not until 1985 that they met in Paris. They arranged to meet in the restaurant of the Hotel PLM, a regular haunt of Beckett. At ten to five, with the light fading, Minihan took the photo that would go on to be called by some as the photograph of the twentieth century. John Calder credited Minihan with capturing,nn 'the introspective, infinitely sad gaze of a man looking into the abyss of the world's woes'.nnAmong his numerous photographic publications are Photographs: Samuel Beckett (1995); Shadows from the Pale, Portrait of an Irish Town (1996); and An Unweaving of Rainbows, Images of Irish Writers, 1996.nHe is currently a freelance photographer specialising in 'the arts'. His book of photographs of Samuel Beckett was published in 1995. His photographs of Athy have been exhibited throughout the world. He was given the freedom of Athy in 1990. Minihan currently lives and works in West Cork. nMinihan's many exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world include the Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro, 1984; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris 1986; the National Portrait Gallery, London 1987/8 and the October Gallery, London 1990 as well as the Guinness Hop Store, Dublin 1991. (Wikipedia)nnThomas Kennerly "Tom" Wolfe, Jr. (born March 2, 1931) is an American author and journalist, best known for his association and influence over the New Journalism literary movement in which literary techniques are used in objective even-handed journalism. Beginning his career as a reporter, he soon became one of the most culturally significant figures of the 1960s after the publication of books such as The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test (a highly experimental account of Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters) and two collections of articles and essays, Radical Chic & Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers and The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby. His first novel, The Bonfire of the Vanities, released in 1987, was met with critical acclaim and was a great commercial success.nnHe is also known, in recent years, for his spats and public disputes with other writers, including John Updike, Norman Mailer, and John Irving.

        Master Plan for the New Campus of Umm Al-Qura University. Makkah al-Mukarramah, Al-A'abidiya District, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

      [Chicago: Perkins and Will, 1991] - Oblong folio (280 × 435 mm). Comb-bound in original green leatherette case, titles and concentric panelling gilt to front board. A few faint scuffs and marks to front board, occasional mild toning towards extremities. A very good copy. Text in English and Arabic. Title page printed in gilt on heavy green card after design on front board, divisional titles printed in green on light card within geometric designs, initial decorative "basmalah" leaf with glassine wrapper, full-page colour photograph of architectural model, 6 page of colour photographs of Saudi royals, profuse maps, photographs, tables and plans throughout the text, in colour and black and white. An attractively presented and exhaustively documented architectural master plan, an interesting record of modern Islamic architecture, untraced in libraries or commercial records. "The Master Plan is influenced by three considerations: The Islamic Tradition, including the Saudi heritage status of Makkah Al-Mukarramah The Climate and Ecology of the Region [and] the specific operational needs as defined in the functional Space Program reflect[ing] a commitment to establishing an Islamic university of world rank" (p. 23). The architectural firm Perkins and Will were founded in Chicago in 1935 and are responsible for a number of noted university buildings across North America. They were bought by Lebanese firm Dar al-Handasah in 1986 and awarded the contract for Umm al-Qura soon after. Umm al-Qura University grew out of the College of Sharia, founded in Mecca in 1949; it assumed its present name by royal decree in 1980. It continues to focus on the Islamic sciences and is popular among the conservative population of the Hijaz, though it also offers courses in medicine and the applied sciences. "Like other Islamic universities, its aim is to supply the judges, imams and teachers required throughout the country; in the government its graduates occupy posts in the ministries concerned with education, justice and 'the preservation of virtue'" (Abir, Saudi Arabia: Society, Government and the Gulf Crisis, p. 19). A laid-in letter from the chairman of the company, Robert Cooke, dated March 1992, sheds light on publication. "Although we have been working on the Umm al Qura University project in Makkah for approximately four years, we were not able to publish the Master Plan Report until six months ago. It's interesting that we published the Report after we had awarded the first construction packages! This was due to the incredible length of time it took to get the University to agree on the Arabic translations. Anyway, it's done and represents, I feel, a very thorough representation of the dedication and work of a lot of people that is resulting in a fine building complex". [Attributes: First Edition]
