        Shakespeare and the Goddess of Complete Being

      London: Faber and Faber [0-571-16604-0] 1992, 1st British Edition. (Hardcover) xv, 517pp. Near fine in near fine dust jacket. Octavo. Navy cloth with gilt lettering and decoration on spine. Light wear to ends of spine. Clean, tight text block. There are a few small notes on the rear paste-down presumably from the previous owner refering to the text. In dust jacket, not price clipped, with only light wear to edges and some very mild chipping to ends of spine with one small closed tear. Placed loosely inside are two clean clipped articles relating to Hughes. A fantastic association copy. Double Signed and Inscribed by the author. Signed by the author in black ink on half title and inscribed by the author in black ink on the title page. The inscription reads "For Patricia Kathleen, with my very best wishes from Ted, 12th August 1993". Edward James "Ted" Hughes (17 August 1930 – 28 October 1998) was an English poet and children's writer. Critics routinely rank him as one of the best poets of his generation. Hughes was British Poet Laureate from 1984 until his death. This critical magnus opus looks at Shakespeare's use of the two most significant poems in the archaic world and argues that they later provided the template for the construction of every one of Shakespeare's plays. The inscription is written to Patricia Kathleen Page, commonly known as P. K. Page, who was a Canadian poet. She was the author of over 30 published books: of poetry, fiction, travel diaries, essays, children's books, and an autobiography. She was also known as a visual artist, who exhibited her work as P.K. Irwin at a number of venues in and out of Canada. Her works are in permanent collections of National Gallery of Canada and Art Gallery of Ontario. Inscribed to P.K. Page..

        Reagan Lists His Administration's Greatest Achievements

      Reagan had a way of reaching out to people that made him friends across much of the political spectrum. He was also seen as a principled man and people trusted him to do what he thought was right and not be controlled by interest groups. However, it seemed to some that his successor owed too much to the religious right, an impression heightened by the Republican Convention in 1992. That event moved life-long Republican Raymond Doig, a film executive at 20th Century Fox where he served for years as president and chief executive officer of Fox International, to write a heart-felt letter to Reagan on August 20, 1992. In the letter, a copy of which is present, he explained that he feared for the direction his party was taking under Bush, and said that Reagan's continued leadership was needed. "...I believe that we have lost direction and have become captive of the Radical Religious Right. Your speech on the opening night of the party's convention was deeply felt and appreciated by this deeply conflicted Republican. You helped me to focus on what is good and just about America. It was always easy to vote for you and embrace your view of America and the world, knowing that you represented the values and ideals I share...Our nation is at a troubled period...We need Reagan leadership not reactionary responses to issues that have been left untended these last four years...If only I had the choice of again voting for you, I would not be leaving the party..." This letter obviously mattered to Reagan, who not only answered it but had the response hand-delivered. & & Autograph Letter Signed on his embossed personal notecard, 2 pages small 8vo, August 31, 1992, pointing out what Reagan obviously considered his administration's greatest achievements, revealing to Doig that George Bush played an integral part in them, and making clear that jumping to the Democrats, who had opposed everything Reagan had tried to do, was no solution. "Thank you for your letter and kind words about my speech. But I must take exception to your concern about our party. We must stay together and prevent a takeover by the Demos. They have had a majority in the Congress for almost all of the last half century. In my 8 years as governor and 8 years as president, I was serving with a Democratic Congress and had to do battle with that Congress. For example, I submitted a budget to the Congress every year as I'm supposed to do. In every one of those 8 years the Congress put my budget on the shelf and submitted a "Continuing Resolution" to me as a substitute. In every instance their substitute called for more spending except in the military, where they reduced the services to a ridiculous level. When I became President, I discovered more than half our military aircraft on any given day could not fly for lack of spare parts. Contrary to the media, Bush as vice president participated in all the things we did, such as the tax reductions, created 19 million new jobs in the economy...eliminated many useless Federal regulations, etc. He was a major participant in the things we did. We were opposed by the Democrats in everything we accomplished. Again thanks for your kind words." & & Many vice presidents have had no authority and little in the way of accomplishments (Eisenhower, when asked by a reporter if he could think of something Nixon had done as vice president, said he could if given a week to think about it). This letter testifies that Bush was an active participant in Reagan's work, and shows that Reagan was sincerely working for Bush's reelection. Perhaps most valuable is Reagan's list of his accomplishments, as in such a situation the most important things are the ones that would come first to mind. There were three: tax cuts, job creation and reduction in Federal government controls. This historically important letter is crucial to understanding both Reagan's view of his main accomplishments and Bush's role within his administration.

        Correspondence Archive

      1992-2011. Fifty pieces of correspondence from Josef Skvorecky (Czech author of The Engineer of Human Souls, among many others) to his eventual friend, writer and musician Anthony Weller. Includes: ¶ 23 typed letters signed by Skvorecky; 1 typed note signed; 2 typed postcards signed; 3 autograph notes signed; 3 autograph postcards signed; 5 signed cards; 12 emails; ¶ one unsigned letter which is together with the unpublished 2007 translation (bound computer printout, double-spaced, rectos only, 280pp.) of the author's novel Encounter in Prague, with Murder. ¶ Much of the correspondence falls in the years 2001-2007, a time frame that included: ¶ Weller providing an Afterword to a new edition of Skvorecky's The Bass Saxophone [Toronto: L&OD/Key Porter, 2001], a copy of which is included; ¶ Weller writing an essay, in 2007, on the adaptations of The Bass Saxophone (five-pages, computer printout), also included; ¶ and Skvorecky soliciting advice from Weller on the adequacy of the above translation of Encounter in Prague, on which Skvorecky's and his wife's (Zdena Salivarova) names are crossed out as authors and replaced by hand with the pen name "Josephine Salivar." ¶ Weller's retained email response is included, as are 14 retained copies of letters from Weller to Skvorecky. Weller and Skvorecky shared a passion for jazz as well as both being writers, so their correspondence -- which at first is quite cordial, almost formal -- eventually developed into a friendship based on intellectual closeness and trust. Skvorecky is widely considered one of the most important Czech writers of the postwar and Soviet era. Choosing a self-imposed exile to Canada after the failure of the Prague Spring movement in 1968, he founded a press, 68 Publishers, to publish exiled Czech and Slovak writers whose works were banned in communist Czechoslovakia, including Vaclav Havel, the future President of the Czech Republic, and Milan Kundera, whose Unbearable Lightness of Being was first published in Czech by 68 Publishers. Skvorecky himself was a Nobel Prize nominee in the 1980s. The correspondence spans more than 20 years, up to a point two months before Skvorecky's death. The two writers discuss music, writing, publishing, their health, their travels, and a range of other subjects, exchanging CDs and books (not present here), and discussing their own works as well. Also included is the Czech edition of Nachod, 1254-2004 by Lubomir Imlauf and Stanislav Bohaldo, inscribed by Skvorecky "For Anthony my friend," in 2004, with an additional note saying it is also available in English. Nachod was Skvorecky's birthplace and featured prominently in much of his work. In all a revealing look at one of the major writers of the 20th century, writing candidly to a friend, confidant and fellow writer, along with a typescript of an unpublished translation of one of his novels. All items fine. .

        Birds of Australia Volume I (Birds of Prey)

      Hill House, Melbourne 1992 - First limited facsimile edition thus. 36 fine coloured plates with accompanying text. Endpapers with a repeating pattern of BM library stamps; this is copy no. 113. Original green Japanese Saifu cloth gilt. Fine condition with minimal wear only, contents clean and tight, unmarked, no inscriptions. One of a series of remarkably exact same-size facsimiles of the original in the British Library, printed by offset lithography on acid-free matt art paper and hand-bound. The Hill House series contained the only authentic full-size facsimiles of the works of John Gould - this volume is one of the original printings and now out of print. Publisher's blurb thus "They are not reproductions, because no camera was used in transferring the images from the B.M.(N.H.) originals. Indeed the originals are taken by Museum security courier to the repro-house in Singapore, where they are subjected to the preparation of new plates for printing on 5 and 6 colour offset presses. The paper used is 130 gsm mat art paper. As facsimiles, the books carry faithfully every spot, mark or stain of the originals. They also carry the original Museum Department of Zoology stamps, and librarian's annotations. From behind glass, the naked eye would be unable to distinguish the original from the facsimile, so accurate is the colour printing. Also as facsimiles, they are exactly the same size as the originals (Imperial Folio: 22" x 15"). Each volume is hand sewn, cased-in and bound between 4 mm. boards 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's Library stamps. The publisher has not intruded into the authenticity of the books, leaving the publication data printed only on the very last page at the end of the book block. Each copy is hand inspected by the printer's quality control officer, individually numbered on the inside front board. Thus, no two copies are exactly the same. Although initial volumes were printed in more than 500 copies, later production runs have not exceeded 300 for world-wide sale. This has been caused by a relative shortage of quality paper, together with the intensive hand-labour involved in their production."

        The Belgariad : Pawn Of Prophecy, Queen of Sorcery, Magician&#39;s Gambit, Castle of Wizardry & Enchanters End Game

      Bantam, London, 1992. Later Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Very Good Condition/Very Good. EAN quoted is for Pawn of Prophecy only.& & Book 1. Pawn Of Prophecy (All Publisher annotations)& & "Long ago, the Storyteller claimed, in this first book of THE BELGARIAD, the evil god Torak drove men and Gods to war. But Belgarath the Sorcerer led men to reclaim the Orb that protected men of the West. So long as it lay at Riva, the prophecy went, men would be safe.& But Garion did not believe in such stories. Brought up on a quiet farm by his Aunt Pol, how could he know that the Apostate planned to wake dread Torak, or that he would be led on a quest of unparalleled magic and danger by those he loved--but did not know...?"& & Book 2. Queen Of Sorcery& & "The master Sorcerer Belgarath and his daughter Polgara the arch-Sorceress were on the trail of the Orb, seeking to regain its saving power before the final disaster prophesized by the legends. And with them went Garion, a simple farm boy only months before, but now the focus of the struggle. He had never believed in sorcery and wanted no part of it. Yet with every league they traveled, the power grew in him, forcing him to acts of wizardry he could not accept."& & Book 3. Magician&#39;s Gambit& & "Ce&#39;Nedra, Imperial Princess of Tolnedra, had joined a dangerous mission to recover the stolen Orb that supposedly protected the West from the evil God Torak. And somehow, she found herself feeling quite tender for Garion, the innocent farm boy, who would be forced into the strange tower in the center of all evil to retrieve the Orb by himself."& & Book 4. Castle Of Wizardry& & "END OF THE QUEST& It had all begun with the theft of the Orb that had so long protected the West from the evil God Torak. Before that, Garion had been a simple farm boy. Afterward, he discovered that his aunt was really the Sorceress Polgara and his grandfather was Belgarath, the Eternal Man. Then, on the long quest to recover the Orb, Garion found to his dismay that he, too, was a sorcerer."& & Book 5. Enchanter&#39;s End Game.& & THE DRIVE OF PROPHECY& The quest was over. The Orb of Aldur was restored. And once again, with the crowning of Garion, there was a descendant of Riva Iron-grip to rule as Overlord of the West.& But the Prophecy was unfulfilled. In the east, the evil God Torak was about to awaken and seek dominion. Somehow, Garion had to face the God, to kill or be killed. On the outcome of that dread duel rested the destiny of the world. Now, accompanied by his grandfather, the ancient sorcerer Belgarath, Garion headed toward the City of Endless Night, where Torak awaited him.& To the south, his fiancé e, the princess Ce&#39;Nedra, led the armies of the West in a desperate effort to divert the forces of Torak&#39;s followers from the man she loved.& The Prophecy drove Garion on. But it gave no answer to the question that haunted him: How does a man kill an immortal God?& Here is the brilliant conclusion to the epic of The Belgariad, which began in Pawn of Prophecy--a novel of fate, strange lands, and a Prophecy that must be fulfilled--the resolution of the war of men, Kings, and Gods that had spanned seven thousand years!& & All the volumes have slightly cocked spines. "Queen of Sorcery", on page 49, has a small smudge type stain that runs sporadically over about 3/4", on the outside margin, about 3/4 of the way down the page. There are a few small marks to the exteriors of the text block.& & I would be happy to send other pictures if you would like to see any aspect of the books. Size: 180mm - 250mm. -Dust Jacket is protected in Mylar covering. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Science Fiction & Fantasy; ISBN: 0593026160.

        The Seven Deadly Sins of the Lower Middle Class translated by Michael Feingold from the original text by Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill. Etchings and Lithographs by Mark Beard

      New York: Vincent FitzGerald & Company. 1992. Limited to 50 copies only, all on Rives paper, each signed by the artist, Mark Beard, and translator, Michael Feingold, over 100 hand-collaged and water-colored images of etchings and lithographs, with each of the seven sins a separate gate fold. Printed letterpress in Garamond in at least 14 different colors by Dan Keleher at Wild Carrot Letterpress. Calligraphy by Jerry Kelly. Page size: 12-1/2 x 21 inches. Bound by Zahra Partovi in association with BookLab: cloth over boards, 3/4 leather spine, protective box with game board map of America. Vincent FitzGerald&#39;s publication of THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS OF THE LOWER MIDDLE CLASS takes the form of a game - complete with game board - using what Weill had dealt with in the ballet: the iconography of America. Mark Beard&#39;s neo-classic imagery is a perfect foil for Weill&#39;s take of two sisters struggling to build their family a home on the banks of the Mississippi in Louisiana. The "seven deadly sins" are personified each on a gatefold page, using more than 100 prints to embellish the tale. The map of the United States is on paper by Dieu Donne with pigment embedded into the paper with the seven cities of sin silkscreened after an original watercolor by Beard. The reader / viewer must be involved in the book with the gameboard and detachable magnetized print elements that reveal themselves - to be removed and placed on the board - as the pages are turned. & THE SEVEN DEADLY ISNS OF THE LOWER MIDDLE CLASS was commissioned in 1933 by Tilly Losch, a famous Viennese dancer married to the wealthy English aristocrat Edward James (associated with the Surrealists). Losch and Edwards were good friends of Lotte Lenya and Kurt Weill who were in Paris in 1933 and close to broke. This commission was a way to give some money to Weill/Lenya and serve as a vehicle for Tilly Losch and her good friend, Lotte. Weill brought in Brecht to write the libretto, and it was produced in June of 1933 as part of the review, "Les Ballets," choreography by George Balanchine and starring Losch and Lenya. Auden and Kallman translated it in the late 1950&#39;s, but Lotte Lenya was never happy with the translation and asked Michael Feingold to translate the piece in 1981 for performance by the American Repertory Theater at Harvard. <br>See an <A HREF= >Image.</A><br>
