        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'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's Gambit& & "Ce'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'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'Nedra, led the armies of the West in a desperate effort to divert the forces of Torak'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= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/7891.jpg >Image.</A><br>

For example, to illustrate the quote from the Johnny Mercer song, "Jeepers Creepers- where&#39;d you get them peepers?", we have a Cracker Jack prize cut-out of eyes and glasses attached with grommet so that they move as well as Magritte&#39;s "The Different Crossing". Slightly surreal, with an image of Duchamp and several Magritte paintings, this is a witty, provocative book. <br>See an <A HREF= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/8988.jpg >Image.</A><br>

        THREE LIONS AND THE CROSS OF LORRAINE, BARTHOLOMAEUS ANGLICUS, JOHN OF TREVISA, JOHN TATE, WYNKYN DE WORDE, AND DE PROPRIETATIBUS RERUM

      Newtown, PA: Bird & Bull Press. 1992. tall 4to., quarter leather, paper over boards. 40, (22) pages.. Limited to 138 numbered copies, this work was printed at the Bird & Bull Press by Henry Morris using Van Dijck types by M&H Type on Frankfurt mouldmade paper. Three Lions and the Cross of Lorraine, Bartholomaeus Anglicus, John of Trevisa, John Tate, Wynkyn De Worde, and De Proprietatibus Rerum contains four essays written for this volume, 19 facsimiles of the woodcuts from DE PROPRIETATIBUS RERUM, and an actual leaf, inserted in a mylar folder, taken from a defective copy of DE PRORIETATIBUS RERUM (circa 1495 and printed by Wynkyn de Worde). This book was the first English book printed on paper made in England and the use of Tate&#39;s paper is proudly cited in the epiloque of the actual book. After Tate&#39;s death in 1507, three failed attempts to make paper in England happened during the 16th century but English papermaking was not established until John Spilman&#39;s successful mill in 1585. Hills has written about John Tate and his papermill. Such a leaf is rare, for it is highly unlikely another incomplete copy of Bartholomaeus will be on the market again. Henry Morris in his foreword says about this book, "I knew it would probably be the most important work I could ever hope to produce in the field of papermaking history." Loosely inserted is a printed note from the publisher commenting on the small limitation.

        VISIONAIRE NO. 7: BLACK (FALL 1992)

Loose Plates in a Portfolio. Fashion Quarterly. Very Good./No Jacket - As Issued. Individual illustrated sheets laid into a silkscreened, die cut portfolio, profusely illustrated in monochrome. Designed by Mats Gustafson and Stephen Gan. Published in an edition of one thousand, five hundred copies, this is the seventh installment of everyone&#39;s favorite long-running luxe fashion quarterly, Visionaire. "With "Black", Visionaire doubled in size-and also in price. The issue was inspired by the season&#39;s all-black Comme des Garcons collection, Edward Gorey&#39;s macabre cartoons, and by artist Antoni Tapies. It was about darkness, the night, shadows, and what you may or may not see when you squint your eyes. A traditional artist&#39;s portfolio case tied with three black ribbons, provided the concept for the packaging. The die-cut letters were based on tears Stephen had made with scrap paper that enabled, once again, different first pages to peek through the cover". The contributors to this noir-ish issue are editor Stephen Gan, Edward Gorey, Ruben Toledo, Bill Cunningham, Elaine Gan, Juan Botas, Bruce Weber, Mats Gustafson, Mario Testino, Francois Berthoud, Karen Park, Gregory Foley, Bernard Figueroa, David McDonough, Mika Mizutani, Max Vadukl, Satoshi Sakusa, Peter Lindbergh, Ross Bleckner, Michel Haddi, Enrique Badulescu, Andrew Brucker, Philippe Salomon, Noelle Hoeppe, James Dignan, Michael Capotosto, Michael Stratton, and John Callahan; with a unique hand-assembled photo collage by Kristina Colovic. A most handsome individually numbered example (#336/1500) of this uncommon issue showing a few light scuffs to the surface of the rear cover. It has been priced accordingly.
