        Akire Quest

      1992 - A 10 ½ in. x 12 in. folder covered in brown leather; the leather is deliberately wrinkled and on the front cover studded with small beads with corner bosses and a raised skull-like figure with 'eyes' and furrowed brow. The pages are hand-made paper, some with the texture of a thin cloth; most of them have been burnished to create the aura of an ancient document. There are forty-eight leaves (96 pp., although some versos are blank). Interlaced with these are a number of thin sheets acting as tissue guards, possibly separating (what can be called) 'chapters.' These leaves alternate between those presenting color drawings of mythic animals, monsters, and landscapes, and those containing text. This text is composed of small squiggles neatly arranged: eight per line, ten lines per page. These squiggles are, supposedly, the written language of an ancient race of humanoids, telling the history of this ancient culture. Loosely laid-in are two sheets with hand-written text, one of which tells how the 'book' was found, the other being the beginning of a translation of the first pages of the 'book.' (It is all very imaginative.) An artist's book. It is the rarest of the rare: only this copy is in circulation, and only two other copies were made. In pristine condition.

        A unique collection of inscribed first editions and ephemera by Crispin Glover, from the collection of filmmaker Trent Harris, including Rat Catching, Oak Mot, and Concrete Inspection

      Volcanic Eruptions, Los Angeles 1992 - A collection of first editions and ephemera by Crispin Glover, from the collection of filmmaker Trent Harris. Included are Glover's first three avant-garde books, "Rat-Catching," "Oak Mott," and "Concrete Inspection," all of which were issued in limitations of 1000 copies, and are in this case each the best possible copy, numbered "-01," "0," and "0" respectively, and inscribed in the year of publication (with inscriptions that are colorful to say the least). Also included is a proof of Glover's first book, "Rat-Catching," one of reportedly only a handful of copies created by Glover for promotion, in a much larger format than the resulting book, with each page in a plastic protector, bound with silver clasp-rings. Last is an original poster for a 1979 signing event for Glover's first book. Harris directed a trio of short films between 1979 and 1985 now known as "The Beaver Trilogy," all featuring an eccentric character named "Groovin' Gary," a resident of Beaver, Utah, with whom the director was obsessed. "Gary" played himself in the first film ("The Beaver Kid," 1979), and was then represented by Sean Penn in the second film ("The Beaver Kid 2," 1981), and finally by Glover in the third installment ("The Orkly Kid," 1985). Glover has continued to make books and films, along with live performance art, all of which challenge conventions and boundaries. His work has its roots in the avant-grade, the early work of Werner Herzog and Frederick Wiseman, and the his ongoing interest in the lives of American outsiders and outsider culture. A remarkable collection of items by one of a challenging and significant artist, and an important association with one of his earliest collaborators. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Improvisation I." - Autograph Musical Quotation

      - Very uncommon AMQS from important French composer and conductor, one of the major innovators and forces in 20th century music,  who has here neatly penned a short quotation from Improvisation I, part of his longest work, Pli selon pli. Boulez has written out one measure and the title of the movement, "'Le vierge, le vivace et le bel aujourd'hui' (Mallarmé)", signed and dated Salzburg, August 20, 1992. On the verso, a further autograph and inscription from the French baritone Gérard Souzay, dated Salzburg, August 1992."The extent of Boulez's new freedom is perhaps most amply demonstrated in Pli selon pli, a work for soprano and large orchestra in five movements, sub-titled 'portrait de Mallarmé'. Extended passages in which the registers of notes remain fixed make for a new simplicity of style, particularly in the vocal writing of the three Improvisations which form the work's central core. The frequently ornate vocal style of the work does not preclude a somewhat expressionistic treatment of Mallarmé's text, but Boulez's real homage to the poet lies deeper, in the formal correspondences between his music and Mallarmé's poetic syntax."

It is the '30s, and we meet the old corps, as it existed between WW I and WW II -- on station in Shanghai, at Quantico, in Washington, all nicely contrasted with civilian life stateside. But the calendar is moving relentlessly toward a fatal day in 1941. When it comes, we understand why nothing could ever be the same again -- and what it's going to take to win the awful conflict into which we have been bloodily and unpreparedly thrust.

        BIRDS OF ASIA VOLUME VII [Volume 7]

      Melbourne: Hill House, 1992. Limited facsimile edition in the original publisher's box. Original Japanese Saifu cloth, gilt; 72 fine coloured plates with accompanying text. Endpapers with a repeating pattern of BM library stamps. One of series of remarkably exact same-size facsimile 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. A fine copy. Publisher's blurb: "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." A fine as new copy of perhaps the rarest Hill House facsimile of Gould's work.A POSTAL SURCHARGE MAY APPLY ON THIS HEAVY BOOK.. Facsimile Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/No Dust Jacket. Elephant Folio.

Thistle, 6 November 1946, thanking him for sending the Washington Observer: "Fairly human-looking for a change.
