        Eight Lures

      Ruth Lingen and Katherine Kuehn, New York 1992 - Eight black-and-white copper plate prints in a stiff, black paper chemise with red leather corners and black and white paper letterpress label on the front. Edition of 40. This is master printer Ruth Lingen’s copy, marked "AP" (artist’s proof) in pencil on the colophon and initialed, dated, and noted "AP" by Drescher on each print. Colophon printed on the recto of the chemise.Drawn by Drescher directly onto copper plates and printed in relief, Drescher’s dark, swirling imaginary fishing lures are suggestive of human reproductive organs and other biological elements. Drescher, a noted illustrator, has said that "since an early age, I’ve been an image scavenger, my mind has always been alert to image debris, keeping ideas and images in books, which then spill into my painting and illustration." Each print has a one-word title: "Manipulator," "Soother," "Thruster," " Breather," "Invertebrator," " Influxer," "Dissappointer," and "Transformer."Drescher and Lingen collaborated in 1989-90 on Drescher’s Comeundone, which Lingen printed, made the pulp paper for, and hand-bound. Lingen is noted for her attention to fine detail, leading her to collaborate frequently on artist’s books; both Lingen and Kuehn have had longstanding relationships with Granary Books as printers and designers.This is an extremely scarce portfolio volume due to its limitation size, found only in the library collections of Yale University, the University of Arizona, and the University of Wisconsin (both Lingen and Kuehn are graduates of their MFA program in graphic arts).Without gold highlighting on the prints or the gold-printed letterpress cover label, found only in numbered copies. Seven of the eight prints have a tiny nick at the bottom edge of the sheet. Original enclosure fine. 20cm x 25.7cm. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

      Butte College Press, Oroville, CA 1992 - Quarto, 119pp, gilt lettering on spine. Leather spine, green cloth cover and slipcase. Slipcase in near fine condition. Signed limited edition of 50 copies, this being number 45. Not to be confused with a similar signed, limited publication of 200 copies. This edition was held for the author and includes a leather spine and slipcase. This address by Gerald Ford was given at Butte College in 1991. It addresses the War Powers Resolution (War Powers Act) which was enacted by congress over the veto of President Nixon. In 1973, tired of the Vietnam and Korean Wars, congress passed a new law that required a President seek a declaration of war by congress before sending troops into combat. While this law has never been challenged in the supreme court, President Ford contended that it was unconstitutional and hindered the ability of the executive to defend the nation. President Clinton and President Bush have both challenged the law with their actions in Kosovo and Iraq. A scarce edition. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        [Passiflora caerula or blue passion flower].[Lekzigt, near Dordrecht?, ca. 1780?]. Folio. (43 x 27.5 cm). Watercolour drawing on laid paper, signed on the back by the artist, "J. van der Vinne Jzn.". Attached by the top corners to a (19th-century?) wove millboard mount kept in a modern passe-partout.

      Hans van Leeuwen Collection II: 18th and early 19th century Dutch and Flemish master drawings, Amsterdam, Christie's, 24 November 1992, lot 430; for the Van der Vinne family: Scheen, p. 551. A beautiful, large watercolour drawing of a blue passion flower (Passiflora caerula, image 42 x 27 cm), by the Haarlem painter Jan Jansz. van der Vinne (1734-1805), showing a vine with two flowers fully opened and another closed, as well as numerous leaves, buds and runners. The passion flower is indigenous to South America, but became a popular ornamental plant in Europe due to its exotic and spectacular appearance. Jan Jansz. van der Vinne no doubt learned to paint from his father Jan van der Vinne (1699-1753), a member of the Haarlem painters' guild best known for his flower and landscape drawings. Before Jan Jansz.'s botanical drawings came to light he was best known for his landscape drawings and etchings, but it now appears that his flower drawings were his most important work.In fine condition. A beautiful botanical watercolour, showing the spectacular passion flower.

      Miramax 1992 - Vintage original 27 x 41" (69 x 105 cm.) one sheet poster, USA. Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Chris Penn, Steve Buscemi, dir: Quentin Tarantino; Miramax Films. Seven strangers team up for a crime, but, during the jewelry heist, something goes wrong and they start to suspect each other of being an informant. Tarantino's first full feature effort, made on a shoestring budget, is now a cult classic. This is a very difficult poster to obtain, for two simple reasons -- the film had a limited release which resulted in small number being printed; and, of course, many people want this poster! Beward of repros and fakes, the internet is full of later copies of this poster. Unfolded, with just the smallest hint of shelf wear, FINE.

        Compleat Falconer LTD ED

      Hancock House, 1992 1992-01-01. Hardcover. New. Limited Edition Leather Bound ($1500) plus original watercolour includes a very special original 4 x 6" watercolour painting made by Frank Beebe before his passing. Only six watercolours left in stock. A veritable how-to of Frank Beebe's lifetime experience. Included are plates of 32 original paintings and more that 100 illustrations and drawings. What is Falconry? Really it is just bird watching, although a rather dramatic, specialized, glamorized, and historical kind of bird watching. It involves the taking of a predatory bird into the same kind of familiar, loosely controlled relationship with man as is so well known and so commonplace with a dog or a horse; then, with the relationship established, going out hunting in the company of that predatory bird in a partnership in which the bird is the primary hunter and the human plays the lesser part. The human becomes a bird watcher or, if involved, in the menial capacity of a bird dog to flush quarry or as an assistant in subduing quarry already taken. It is an ancient, honorable, and rather humbling relationship, as old in time as that of man and dog or man and horse. With the exception of eagles, most of the birds involved are smaller than the most ordinary house cat or Pekinese dog and are about as dangerous to people. They are accordingly much less dangerous than any ordinary-sized dog and infinitely less dangerous than is the smallest pony. Their acquisition and their use, therefore, needs no more in the way of imposed control than does the keeping of the most inoffensive dog or cat. This book is about falconry. It deals with the acquiring and the care, control, and training of the kinds of raptorial birds most suited to this ancient relationship and also, as far as is now possible, describes and identifies the birds of falconry. Of the determined and devious twenty-year efforts, extending from 1964 to 1987, by nature preservationist groups and government agencies to control, constrain, institutionalize, and finally to simply criminalize falconry, this book will contain only enough to orient a newcomer. Some of this had to be included, somewhat reluctantly; it is highly condensed and closely edited to allow some comprehension of why and how contemporary falconry has become so different from its traditional past as to require a new book with quite different priorities and orientation than heretofore. The training procedures I propose in this book differ significantly from the traditional procedures reiterated in all previous books on falconry and are especially oriented toward the training of these domestic hawks and falcons. Because they are essentially man made, these birds come to the falconer not only devoid of fear and of hunting experience but also devoid of those subtle disciplines imposed by natural selection with which the traditional procedures were, by trial and error, so perfected to cope. A Compleat Guide for the Avid Falconer. Each has choice of original Beebe painting.

SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR AND THE CURRENT ABBESS OF STANBROOK ABBEY. This work serves the dual purpose of being a bibliography of the work produced by the Stanbrook Abbey Press for over 30 years, as well as being, as is stated in the Foreword, "a tribute to a remarkable printer - Dame Hildelith Cumming - who achieved standards of perfection in the design and printing of her publications which earned the Stanbrook Abbey Press a place among the great Private Presses". Published by The Whittington Press, another great private press, the book is impeccably presented. ***DESCRIPTION: Bound in full in inlaid Oasis leathers presenting the silhouette of a habited nun with bowed head, top edge gilt, tan suede pastedown endpapers, tan laid paper free endpapers, frontispiece a black and white photograph of Dame Cumming reading in front of a mullioned window, title page in gold and black, five monochrome plates and forty leaves and illustrations all bound within the text, the first approximately 60 pages of the book discuss Dame Cumming and the history of the Press, with the remainder of the book being its bibliography; type Romulus, printed at the Whittington Press on Zerkall mould-made paper, small folio size (approximately 12.25" tall), pagination: (i)-xvi, (1)-225, etching of a habited nun at a printing press (226), colophon (227); limited edition of 350 total, this no. vi of xvii thusly bound, signed on the colophon page by the author, David Butcher, and Dame Joanna Jamieson, then current Abbess of Stanbrook Abbey.

The folio and specimens are also fine; the specimens may have a shallow bend on the occasional piece but they are almost all in fine condition - the paper label itemizing the pieces does have a spot of minor soiling, else fine.

Praised for his stylish elegance, moral sensibilities, and transformation of autobiographical moments into deep and complex meditations, Merrill's work spans genres, including plays and prose, but the bulk of his artistic expression can be found in his poetry (N.B., from Poetry Foundation web site). ***ABOUT THE ARTIST: Dorothea Tanning (1910-2012), painter, sculptor, and poet, was known for her vivid, dreamlike style of painting. Initially inspired by the Surrealists, she quickly grew into her own style incorporating a manic lucidity into her dreamy images. ***DESCRIPTION: Unbound as issued and encased in stiff grey paper wrappers with orange "sun"-like image on the cover, each folded page has an etching by Dorothea Tanning on the left side and text on the right, each image is bright and vibrant in full colour, the etchings were printed by Christian Guerin and Jennifer Melby, cover paper made by Paul Wong, printed in Palatino type on Rives BFK by Carol Sturm and Doug Wolf of Nadja Press; 10 signatures, 7" tall x 7.5" wide, signed by both author James Merrill and artist Dorothea Tanning, limited edition with this copy number IV of X special edition copies, of 110 total (of which the 26 lettered copies were not for sale).

        Un Coup de Des Jamais N'Abolira Le Hasard [WITH] A Throw of the Dice Never Will Abolish Chance

      [New York]: The Limited Editions Club (1992), 1992. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Kelly, Ellsworth. Elephant Folio - over 15 - 23" tall. 23 p. Signed by Artist. Limited Edition of 300 copies for sale, this no. 295, SIGNED BY THE ARTIST on the colophon page, with both the English translation and the monthly newsletter loosely laid in. Stephane Mallarme (Etienne Mallarme, 1842-1898) was a French symbolist poet whose work inspired Cubism, Futurism, Dadaism, and Surrealism. This work, his last major poem, combines free verse with an unusual typographic layout; facing pages are meant to be read as a single panel, with the text flowing back and forth across the two pages, along irregular lines. The text of the main volume is entirely in French, with a small companion volume in wraps containing the English translation that follows Mallarme's typographic arrangement. Ellsworth Kelly (1923-2015) created eleven lithographs to accompany the text; while his flat, monochromatic panels appear to be purely abstract, each draws on specific details in the text observed by the artist, and each challenges the viewer's perception and perceptiveness (N.B., above info from Wiki, monthly newsletter, and LEC web site). ***DESCRIPTION: Bound in full black Nigerian oasis goatskin over boards, gilt lettering on the spine, the lithographs bound in throughout the text; Monotype Bodoni, handset, printed by the Wild Carrot Letterpress on BFK Rives paper, elephant folio size (approximately 17" tall), unpaginated with 23 printed leaves, each printed only on one side, limited edition of 300 copies, this no. 295, signed by Ellsworth Kelly. The companion volume with the English translation has 10 leaves plus the wrapper. Box enclosing the volume is covered in black linen cloth, black leather spine label with gilt lettering, the inside lined with black suede. ***CONDITION: Fine, the leather binding still supple retaining its full, rich black colour, with a strong, square text block, solid hinges, perfectly straight corners with no rubbing, the interior is clean and bright, and it is entirely free of prior owner markings - crisp, as new. The clamshell box is also fine, unfaded and unfrayed; the monthly newsletter and companion volume are also fine. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell. Please contact us with any questions you may have, we are here to help.
