First Edition. 8vo, publisher&#146;s original cloth backed black boards, in the illustrated dustjacket with Publisher&#146;s Weekly blurb and first letter on front flap in colour. 302 pp. A very fine copy in a very fine dustjacket, as pristine and mint. FIRST EDITION. Basis for the movie featuring Matt Damon, Henry Thomas, and Penélope Cruz. First volume in The Border Trilogy. Winner of both the National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award. Its romanticism, in contrast to the bleakness of McCarthy&#39;s earlier work, brought the writer much public attention. The novel tells of John Grady Cole, a sixteen year old cowboy who grew up on his grandfather&#39;s ranch in San Angelo, Texas.<br> All the books of the "Border Trilogy" are written in an unconventional format which omits traditional Western punctuation such as quotation marks and makes use of polysyndetic syntax in a manner similar to that of Ernest Hemingway.

      Hill House. New;. 1992. Hardcover. 0947352163 . 36 Plates. BRAND NEW! This is not a mere reproduction. This is an exact facsimile of an original held in the Libraries of the British Museum (Natural History) in London and Tring. It is not a reproduction, because no camera was used in transferring the images from the originals. The paper used is 130 gsm mat art paper. This facsimile carries faithfully every spot, mark or stain as the original. It also carries the original Museum Department of Zoology stamps, and librarian&#39;s annotations. The color printing is so accurate that, from behind glass, the naked eye would be unable to distinguish the original from the facsimile. This facsimile is exactly the same size as the original (Imperial Folio: 22" x 15"). It is cased-in and bound between 4 mm. The boards are covered in special Japanese Saifu cloth, gold stamped on the spine, and with the gold Crown Cipher of the British Museum (Natural History) on the front, and blind embossed on the inner margin of the front boards. The end-papers are of special wood-free heavy grade paper, printed in a generated repetitive pattern of the Museum&#39;s Library stamps. The publisher has not intruded into the authenticity of the book, leaving the publication data printed only on the very last page at the end of the book block. This book is individually numbered on the inside front board, hand wrapped in protective brown paper, and placed in its own crush-proof outer carton. The carton is then sealed, numbered and signed on the outside by the printer&#39;s quality control officer. ; Vol. 1 .

        Faksimile - Très Belles Heures de Notre-Dame du Duc de Berry. Bibliothèque nationale, Paris, 3093. (2 Bde.).

      Luzern, Faksimile-Vlg., 1992 - 4° (28 x 20 cm), 252 S., mit Pinsel- und Blattgold versehene Miniaturen; Kommentarbd.: 254 S., Rotes OLdr. goldgeprägt ( Kommentarbd. HLdr.) in Acrylglasschuber, Rücken minimal beschienen, sonst tadellos. Nr. 708 von 980 Exemplaren. Glanzvolle Bilderhandschrift des Herzogs von Berry . Eines der prachtvollsten Stundenbücher Die Bilderhandschrift "Très Belles Heures" markiert einen Höhepunkt mittelalterlicher Buchmalerei, geschaffen zu Beginn des 15. Jahrhunderts von den begnadetsten Künstlern jener Zeit. Auf 25 Miniaturseiten entfaltet sich die ganze Pracht der Buchmalerei, für die diese Handschrift berühmt ist. Nicht umsonst ist sie im Inventar des Herzogs von Berry als "sehr schönes Stundenbuch Unserer Lieben Frau in kunstvollen Lettern" beschrieben.Sowohl Text als auch Bild werden mit demselben erstaunlichen Aufwand ausgeschmückt. Verschwenderisches Gold und Farben von unerhörter Leuchtkraft werden für Szenen verwendet, die in kräftigen Bildern vom spätmittelalterlichen religiösen, aber auch profanen Leben erzählen.Jede der Miniaturseiten besteht aus drei Elementen. Einmal ist da die große, tafelbildartige Miniatur, dann eine prachtvolle Initiale und schließlich eine figürliche Szene am unteren Blattrand. Insgesamt entstand so ein geschlossener Eindruck von höchster gestalterischer Qualität.Monumentalwerk mit abenteuerlicher Geschichte Die Très Belles Heures de Notre-Dame bildeten in ihrer ursprünglichen Gestalt eine der monumentalsten Handschriftenkonzeptionen der Kunstgeschichte. Aufgrund ihrer Schönheit und luxuriösen, aufwendigen Ausstattung war das Werk schon im Mittelalter als Kunst- und Sammelobjekt geschätzt. Im Verlauf ihrer wechselvollen Geschichte wurde die Handschrift nämlich in drei Teile aufgeteilt.1412 schenkte der Herzog von Berry die gewaltige Bilderhandschrift seinem Schatzmeister Robinet d'Estampes. Dieser behielt das eigentliche Stundenbuch für sich. Die beiden anderen Teile des Werkes spezielle Gebete an einzelne Heilige und ein Meßbuch gingen an das Haus von Bayern-Holland.Später gelangte das Meßbuch nach Mailand, die Gebete kamen nach Turin. Die Turiner Gebete sind heute leider verloren: Sie fielen dem Brand der Bibliothek von 1904 zum Opfer, mit Ausnahme von vier Blättern, die sich heute im Musée du Louvre in Paris befinden (siehe Eintrag "Die Blätter im Louvre").Das eigentliche Stundenbuch, das Robinet behalten hatte, blieb bis ins 18. Jahrhundert in Familienbesitz. Im 19. Jahrhundert wurde es von Baron Alphonse de Rothschild erworben, dessen Nachkommen die Handschrift 1956 der Bibliothèque nationale in Paris überließen.Einzigartige Stellung in der Kunstgeschichte Nach langwierigen wissenschaftlichen Untersuchungen durch den Verfasser des Kommentarbandes konnte eine bisher unbekannte, erstaunliche Tatsache festgestellt werden: Offensichtlich waren alle an der Handschrift beteiligten Maler eigentlich Tafelmaler.Jede einzelne Miniatur ist ein Kunstwerk für sich, eine Facette der reichhaltigen Fülle der Buchmalerei, die sich nicht auf die Traditionen der Metropole Paris beschränkte, sondern auch Maler aus Flandern miteinbezog.Diese Zusammenarbeit verschiedener Meister macht die Handschrift besonders reizvoll. Beteiligt waren der Meister des Paraments mit seiner monumentalen Kunst, der "Heilig-Geist"-Meister mit seinen heftig bewegten Bildern und schließlich der Meister Johannes des Täufers mit seinen weichen Farbtönen. Dazu kommt noch die herausragende Kunst der Brüder Limburg, denen zwei Miniaturseiten zugeschrieben werden. Die Künstler waren frei von vorgegebenen Gestaltungsprinzipien mittelalterlicher Buchmalerwerkstätten und verfuhren weitgehend nach eigenen Vorstellungen. Aber dieses außerordentliche Werk der Pariser Buchmalerei um 1400 ist noch mehr: Es erwies sich als das wichtigste Zeugnis der weitgehend verlorengegangenen französischen Tafelmalerei dieser Epoche.Die einzigartige Gestaltung von Rahmung und Architektur wurde von den Malern dieses kunstgeschichtlich so wichtigen Werkes vermutlich [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Victor Dubreuil's painting of The International Contest between Heenan & Sayers cleverly recreates the 1860 lithograph by the same name. It is a remarkable trompe l'oeil or "trick of the eye" and an exact replica of the print on canvas. The artist's intentions behind creating such an image are not readily apparent. The painting may be a reference to the class struggles prevalent during the latter half of the nineteenth century. Boxers were mainly from working class backgrounds and in America pugilism became a popular avenue for African-Americans eager to escape slavery. In contrast, the spectators were from the wealthier classes and it is known that among the crowd watching the Heenan and Sayers fight were Charles Dickens and William Thackeray. The painting may also be a comment upon Anglo-American relations during the second half of the nineteenth century, as the global power of imperial Britain was threatened by its colonial dominion. The heavyweight title fight between the English boxer Tom Sayers and his American counterpart John .C. Heenan was fought in 1860. It took place at Farnborough, England because pugilism was still officially outlawed in the United States. However, it was the first title fight to draw attention form both sides of the Atlantic. Heenan outweighed Sayers by 46 pounds and towered six inches above him. Up to this time America had not been regarded as a serious contender for the world title, but the discrepancy in the weights was expected to give Heenan a real chance. The fight was bloody from the beginning, in the sixth round, Sayers broke his right arm blocking a punch and in the eighth, Heenan broke his left hand. In the 37th round someone cut the ropes and the referee deserted. The fight continued for five more rounds until it ended in a draw. Among the most enigmatic of the American trompe l'oeil still-life painters of the late nineteenth century was Victor Dubreuil, born in New York City to French émigré parents. While Dubreuil's training is unknown, his name appears in Manhattan directories in 1886. Dubreuil had a satirical streak, frequently painting dollar bills to underscore America's preoccupation with wealth in the age of the robber barons. His works show a preoccupation with the plight of the working man through the policies of government.

Artist&#146;s descriptive statement: &#147;It was one of those things where I had an idea in my head and had to get it on a copy of that book before it drove me crazy. Unfortunately, the best copy I came across was this Heritage press volume. The headbands are onlayed, and the the patches on the coat and hat are reverse side leather. All the &#145;stitching&#146; on the patches and title slip are of red Nigerian goat strips which are tucked top and bottom to better simulate sewn threads, and to prevent peeling. The top edge is spattered to match the headbands. If you are familiar with the story you will remember that the two little boys (one a prince & one a pauper) trade places thus, the princely robe with the pauper hat, and the pauper coat with the prince&#146;s crown.&#148; (1993). This is one of Linda Sandlin's larger size handcrafted design bindings made around 1992. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
