        RESERVOIR DOGS (1992)

      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.

        Eight Lures

      New York: Ruth Lingen and Katherine Kuehn, 1992. First Edition. Original enclosure. Near fine. Henrik Drescher. 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 Lingens copy, marked AP (artists 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, Dreschers dark, swirling imaginary fishing lures are suggestive of human reproductive organs among other things. Drescher, a noted illustrator, has said that since an early age, Ive 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 Dreschers 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 artists books; both Lingen and Kuehn have had longstanding relationships with Granary Books as printers and designers.This is an extremely scare 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.

        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.

Artist's Book. Near Fine. np (36pp), 18 b&w illustrations. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. Raymond Pettibon first came to prominence during the late-seventies with his raw, literary-inflected imagery for Black Flag, Sonic Youth, and SST Records.

Limited to one hundred copies, "One Foot in the Mouth, One Foot on the Shelf" is his 1992 Superflux-published artist book cum 'zine collaboration with "Master" Nelson Tarpenny that reproduces eighteen psychologically-charged drawings. A most handsome, guaranteed authentic example of this exceedingly uncommon Pettibon tour de force (entry number one hundred and one in Uwe Koch and Roberto Ohrt's "A Catalogue Raisonné of Artists' Books by Raymond Pettibon, 1978-98") HAND NUMBERED "72/100" in black ink by the artist on the front cover, as issued.

      1992. KIPPENBERGER, Martin. Hotel-Hotel. 494 pp. Illustrated with 245 reproductions. 4to., bound in original wrappers in a new cloth box. Koln: Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther Konig, 1992.|~||~||~||~||~||~||~||~| |~||~||~||~||~||~| This is the first volume of Kippenberger's trilogy Hotel-Hotel, Hotel-Hotel-Hotel and No Drawing No Cry. The books each consist of collections of drawings Kippenbergerer made on stationary from hotels around the world. Kippenberger made hundreds of drawings on hotel stationery, a body of work that comes across as a kind of travel diary. Although he often lived in hotels for weeks or even months, he didn't stay at all the hotels whose notepaper he used, often picking it up from other sources. The stationery became, like so many things he encountered, a readymade material for his art. One of an edition of 950, this one unnumbered. A fine copy, rarely found thus.

Letterkundige genootschappen in Nederland 1750-1800 (Nijmegen 2001) p.198"."De Amsterdamse uitgever Demter heeft er kennelijk naar gestreefd zoveel mogelijk stukjes over de schouwburgbrand uit te geven. En als ze elders waren verschenen, drukte hij ze na. Aan het eind van zijn verzameling van 96 stuks geeft hij bovendien een Naauwkeurige lyst, van alle de geschriften, dichtstukken, en plaaten, enz. die behalven deze verzameling van gedichten, wegens den brand des Amsteldamsche schouwburg in het licht zyn gekoomen ... Dat zijn er nog eens 54, en daarvan zijn er acht hier bijgebonden, waaronder de twee spraakmakendste: de 'Ontzaglyke doch nuttige beschouwing' van Johannes Christiaan Mohr (hier in zesde (!) druk) en de reactie daarop van Betje Wolff, 'Zedenzang aan de menschenliefde, by het verbranden des Amsteldamschen schouwburg'. De Amsterdamse boekhouder Mohr betoogt in zijn dichterlijk debuut - er zou nog heel wat rechtzinnige poëzie volgen - dat de brand een uiting was van Gods toorn over het onzedelijk toneelspel. Men mocht zijns inziens de handen dichtknijpen dat de Heer het bij 18 doden gelaten had. Betje Wolffs antwoord aan de orthodoxie, waarin zij haar tegenstanders aanspreekt met Gy, booze dweepers, ontaarde menschen, schynheiligen, lokte vanzelfsprekend weer andere pamfletten uit."
