        [Cover Title in Japanese: Higashiyama kaii daihyosaku sen nihon no shiki] Selected Works: Four Seasons of Japan

      [Tokyo]: [Yomiuri Shimbun], 1992. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/No Jacket. Large folio (57cm x 45cm). Blue linen clamshell box with Japanese characters on paper label and blind-stamped on upper board, English title stamped in blue on upper board. First and only edition. Pagination: 4 loose leaves of front matter, almost entirely in Japanese, followed by 4 folders, each representing a season, and each with a b/w pictorial index on the front; each folder contains 6 matted and framed but unmounted color lithographs (except for the "Autumn" folder, which is lacking two plates -- see below), for a total of 22 lithographs (each measuring 52cm x 42cm). There is additionally one final leaf consisting of a chart giving original sizes and dates for each work. All of this is protected by a lidded corrugated-cardboard box with paper title labels on cover and bottom edge. Clamshell is very near fine, with only some very slight fraying and a little separation at two corners. Folders and lithographs bright, clean, and beautiful, with a little soiling on two frames in the "Spring" folder -- but the lithographs themselves are unscathed; the "Autumn" folder is lacking plates #4 and #6. The corrugated box is still solid and functional, but not pretty, with some scraping, a few shallow puncture wounds, and some soiling to the cover label. Overall, a stunning set, and quite scarce (not to be confused with the far more common "Four Seasons of Kyoto") -- one copy only in OCLC (at the National Diet Library), no auction records, and none that we've been able to find offered for sale in the trade for the last several years. Contains works produced between 1947 and 1986, including "Vibrant Greens" (1982), "Forest with White Horse" (1972), and "Afterglow" (1947).

        Romantic Music: Sound and Syntax

      Schirmer Books. Near Fine in Fine dust jacket. 1992. First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. 9780028720654 . This specific hardback book is in near fine condition with a hard board cover that has sharp edges/corners with no bumping or scuffing and has a tight binding. The pages are clean, crisp, unmarked and uncreased with no underlining, highlighting, or notes but for a small area (1/8 - 1/16 of an inch) of creasing to the top edge of about 70 pages. This is minor damage and in no way interferes with the text, but is worth mentioning and is the only defect that takes this book out of the like new rating. The dust jacket is in fine condition with only the slightest bit of cover or edge wear. We package all books in custom cardboard book boxes for shipment and ship daily with tracking numbers.; "This book is divided into thirteen chapters. Chapter 1 surveys critical comments dealing with qualities of sound in the ninteenth century. Chapter 2 examines the continuity between Classic and Romantic texture and sound. Specific examples drawn from piano, orchestral, and chamber music literature are discussed in chapters 3-5. Chapter 6 explores the uses of harmonic color in the Romantic repertoire. Chapter 7 reviews the tradition of the period form in Western music. Chapter 8 discusses rhetorical reductions, a technique that factors out the changes introduced by the new sound values to uncover the conventional outlines of the music. Chapter 9 examines symmetrical arrangements in the music of Johannes Brahms, Giuseppe Verdi, Felix Mendelssohn, and Robert Schumann. Chapter 10 discusses the modification of symmetry by sustained sounds and harmonic progressions in the music of Carl Maria von Weber, Franz Schubert, Frederic Chopin, and Richard Wagner. Chapter 11 explores the extensions of periodic symmetryin the music of Hector Berlioz, Gustav Mahler, Franz Liszt, Brahms, and Wagner. The last two chapters treat small forms and sonata forms in the music of Mendelssohn, Brahms, Liszt, and Mahler. - taken from the dust jacket" ; 9.29 X 6.30 X 1.10 inches; 348 pages .

        Snow Crash

      Bantam Spectra, New York 1992 - Uncorrected Proof Copy. This book is in Near Fine condition and was issued thus without a dust jacket. This is a trade paperback. The book was produced in both a hardcover edition of approximately 600 copies and a trade paperback edition of a larger print run. Not only is the hardcover copy of this book a difficult find, but this book became an instant classic in the speculative fiction / cyberpunk sub-genres. The spine ends and corners of the book covers have a bit of light bumping and rubbing. Plain cream colored card stock covers have red gilt lettering to spine and front cover of book. The gilt lettering has started to rub. The front cover of the book has some light ground-in finger dirt and there are two very tiny spots of discoloration. The text pages are clean and bright. The foredge of the text block has one very light spot of discoloration. Stephenson pulls his ideas and themes from all areas: history, cryptography, philosophy, computer programming, religion, archeology, and many more. Snow Crash, while not the first to use Avatar as a computerized golem of a person, did make the term commonplace. He also coined the term Metaverse and indeed, the word Snow Crash. The impact of this book has had both in the science fiction world and in the world of computers cannot be denied. It was nominated for the Arthur C. Clarke award and the British Science Fiction award. "Snow Crash is a vision of the world as it will be: franchines line the street to the horizon, the freeways are privately owned, and the computer-generated universe - virtual reality - is more livable than the real world. But a strange new designer drug called Snow Crash is making zombies of everyone, and a deadly computer virus is striking down hackers everywhere. The last great hope in this post-modern landscape is a new kind of hero: Hiro Protagonist, - Last of the freelance hackers, Greatest swordfighter in the world, Stringer CIA -, - as his business card reads."

        "Whatever evaluation we make of a particular stretch of land..."

      [West Burke]: Janus Press. 1992. An attractive broadside from the Janus Press, printing an excerpt from Arctic Dreams on a paper landscape montage created by Clare Van Vliet. A beautiful production: essentially a paper sculpture of cloud-enshrouded mountains, in keeping with the Lopez quote, which encourages us "to preserve some of the mystery within [the land] as a kind of wisdom to be experienced, not questioned. And to be alert...for that moment when something sacred reveals itself within the mundane..." One of 90 copies signed by Lopez. 16" x 24", matted and framed to 20" x 28". Fine. . First Edition.

        Chant de notre Rhône *

      Cediar, Genève 1992. - En feuilles sous couverture imprimée rempliée, étui-boîte demi peau 42 x 31, plats et intérieur toilés, titre au dos (à peine frotté) et au premier plat, ce dernier avec motif frappé en blanc. L'un des 70 exemplaires numérotés et signés sur Grand Vélin d'Arches, avec 1 lithographie signée. Une ixième édition illustrée de ce texte qui a manifestement inspiré les peintres dés l'origine, la première comportant déjà un bois de Bischoff, celle-ci plutôt monumentale et qui restera (au moins) grâce à la gaité colorée de son imagerie. Notre exemplaire semble présenter la particularité d'une dédicace de l'artiste au faux-titre, sans mention de destinataire, pourquoi pas vous ?

        Autograph musical manuscript signed from his Urban Songs, 1992

      1 page. Large oblong folio (ca. 292 x 403 mm.). For soprano, instruments and synthesizer. Precisely notated in ink, pencil and coloured pencils, identified and signed at conclusion by the composer: "vit: schetsontwerp &#39;Urban Songs&#39; (1992)," with his additional signature in heavy black marker beneath. & & Creased at central fold. In very good condition overall. . An award-winning, avant-garde Swedish composer active in the Netherlands, "Torstensson stands completely on his own in the Dutch musical world. His aesthetic point of departure is strictly modernistic. Stylistically there is a relationship with Varèse and Xenakis. His compositions, regardless of the strength of the orchestra, are radical explorations of musical boundaries, in which extremes are sought in a detailed manner in terms of dynamics, registers, density, stasis and movement, degrees of dissonance and consonance, and physical and spatial effect... The first outline of his compositions is graphic: only the overall progression and the associated stress curves are indicated. In the subsequent phases (Torstensson speaks of &#145;generations&#146;) more and more detailed decisions are taken with regard to timbre, gestures, rhythm, dynamics, articulation and registers..."& & "Torstensson&#146;s output is highly consistent. All his works are written for very specific performers, with the sole exception of the orchestral work Stick on Stick. &#145;Families&#146; of compositions, in which an overall compositional idea is elaborated in an increasingly radical way, are also characteristic: Solo, Licks & Brains I, Licks & Brains II; Hamra, Urban Solo, Urban Songs, Urban Extra." Erik Voermans in Grove online & & An attractive item, executed in the composer&#39;s unique and graphically interesting colourful notation.

        THE CATALOGUE RAISONNE OF THE PRINTS OF PAUL DRURY. 1903 - 1987

      Garton & Co. London. 1992. FIRST EDITION. Large 8vo. (11 X 8.5 inches). LIMITED EDITION. One of only 50 copies. Original wood engraving (again one of just 50, numbered and initialled by the printer) in a pocket inside the rear board.

Illustrated with a mono photo portrait of Drury for the frontispiece and 94 reproductions of his prints. A fine copy in a fine dustwrapper. ----- Paul Drury was at the centre of the revival of the pastoral tradition at Goldsmith&#39;s College in the 1920&#39;s, along with Robin Tanner, Graham Sutherland, Bouverie Hoyton & William Larkins, among others, rejecting the plein air tradition of etching which was prevalent at the time. The limited edition wood-engraving that is included with the book is of particular importance, being one of the earliest works by any of the Goldsmiths&#39; group that can really be described as pastoral.
