        Une guerre. Livre unique entièrement peint. Signé par l'artiste.

      Paris, chez l'artiste, 1 août 1990 - 28 février 1991. - 23 x 18 cm, 11 f. format croissant. Peint à la main. Reliure de l'artiste, couv. peinte avec le titre, 11 ff. double coffret. Livre unique, entièrement peint à la main par Kate Van Houten (née en 1940). L'artiste américaine a préparé et cousu le papier de ce livre le 1er août 1990, jour de l'invasion du Koweit par l'Irak. Chaque page est peinte à la main et égrène les dates et lieux des batailles de la Guerre du Golfe. C'est par pur hasard que le dernier jour de l'opération Tempête du désert a correspondu à la dernière page du livre. Sommaire : Kate Van Houten (New-York, 1940) a étudié l’histoire et les langues étrangères aux USA, avant de poursuivre des études de sculpture à Milan. Sur la route du retour vers les Etats-Unis, elle passe par Paris, où elle décide de vivre. Elle apprend la gravure sur cuivre et sur zinc et la sérigraphie dans l’atelier 17 de Hayter. Kate Van Houten travaille à partir d’une idée qui se traduit en geste, et prend souvent ses sculptures pour modèle de ses oeuvres sur papier, tandis que son travail sérigraphique se rapproche du paysage, avec ce sentiment des grands espaces américains qui lui manquent parfois.

        La bandera invisible

      Ediciones Palabra, S.A. 06/1991 - 272 p. 18x11 cm La bandera invisible, que fue saludada como una obra maestra cuando se publicó, nos habla de las dificultades de la atención médica en campaña con un vigor narrativo, una sencillez y una compasión que la hacen única en su género. Peter Bamm escribió desde dentro de la poderosa maquinaria bélica alemana mostrando sus contradicciones, sin ocultar la responsabilidad de la Wehrmacht en los crímenes del nazismo; pero se ocupó también de otros aspectos: de cómo la humanidad y la camaradería afloran en las condiciones más duras, incluso entre enemigos; de las penalidades que debió soportar la población civil durante la guerra o de la belleza y el rigor de la estepa rusa. . . La bandera invisible es un libro conmovedor, que recoge los hechos de hombres y mujeres que, en medio de la atrocidad de la guerra, decidieron caminar bajo «la bandera de la humanidad», aquella que ampara a quienes con hechos silenciosos son capaces de sacrificarse por los demás.

They resemble the original paperbacks (as did Billings but unlike the 3rd Wisden set in 1991 that are like rebinds), It comes in their original box (which may be a Billings box). The box is worn and a bit grubb but the books are nice and clean without too much issue. Only 100 sets were produced with 50 individual runs so 150 in total.

Como testimonio de su travesía, dejó una serie de ilustraciones a color que muestran aspectos muy dversos de los territorios que formaban la Diócesis de Trujillo. De entre las más de mil cuatrocientas imágenes conservadas, se encuentran las partituras de 20 piezas de música popular que Martínez Compañón transcribió durante su viaje, aunque su prioridad fue tomar apuntes para una historia completa de la diócesis de Trujillo.

        Roman Blood [SIGNED SCARCE UNCORRECTED PROOFS]

      St. Martin's Press, 1991, Wrappers, Book Condition: Near Fine, First edition. A Very Good + to Near Fine copy of the SCARCE ADVANCE UNCORRECTED PROOF for the first edition, first printing (spine lightly sunned, light pushes to the wrapper leading edges and leading corners, minor soiling), SIGNED BY STEVEN SAYLOR on the title page; Steven Saylor's notable debut book: a novel set in the final decades of the Roman Empire and being the first work in his Roma Sub Roma series. In the novel, Cicero, while defending the character Sextus Roscius from charges of patricide, hires the Roman sleuth Gordianus the Finder to assist him in determining the truth of the matter. The novel is based on a trial oration given by Cicero in his real-life 80 BC successful defense of Sextus Roscius against the charge that he had killed his father. Copies of the Advance Uncorrected Proofs are rather scarce, and signed copies are, in our experience, quite scarce indeed. A Near Fine copy of the ADVANCE UNCORRECTED PROOFS OF THIS NOTABLE DEBUT, SIGNED BY STEVEN SAYLOR. QUITE SCARCE INDEED.

      Blackwell Publishing, 1991. First edition, later printing of the re-issue of Markowitz's ground breaking work. Octavo, original black cloth. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Inscribed by the author. "Modern portfolio theory gives a rigorous mathematical justification for the time honored investment maxim that diversification is a sensible strategy for individuals who wish to reduce their risks. Invented in the 1950s by Harry Markowitz in this book, the theory provides a firm foundation for the intuition that you should not put all your eggs in one basket and shows investors how to combine securities to minimize risk."
