        DAS STUNDENBUCH DER SFORZA. [THE SFORZA HOURS]

      Faksimile Verlag, Lucerne 1993 - 206 x 168 mm (8 1/8 x 6 5/8"). Four volumes (each with separate volume of commentary in English and German). With commentary by Mark L. Evans. No. 195 OF 980 COPIES. Publisher's red velvet, flat spine, two silver gilt clasps, each volume housed in a matching velvet box with the commentary volume (in paper wrapper), gilt coat of arms on upper cover of each box. With 138 borders and 48 miniatures by Birago, and two borders and 16 miniatures by Horenbout. In mint condition. This is a very fine facsimile of a Renaissance book of hours with an intriguing history and decoration by two different and distinguished illuminators, one Italian and the other Flemish. The Sforza Hours was originally commissioned from Italian miniaturist Giovan Pietro Birago (fl. 1471-1513) by Bona Sforza, wife of the Duke of Milan, around 1490. A surviving letter from Birago to an unknown nobleman complains that part of the manuscript was stolen by an unscrupulous "Fra Jacopo," and demands restitution in the enormous amount of 500 ducats. No one knows if Birago was ever reimbursed for his loss, but the duchess bequeathed the partial manuscript to her nephew's wife, Margaret of Austria. In 1506, Margaret, daughter of the Holy Roman Emperor, moved to the Netherlands, where she served as Regent for the future Charles V until his coronation in 1520. In 1517, she set about completing the Sforza Hours, hiring scribe Etienne de Lale to provide the missing text pages and illuminator Gerard Horenbout (ca. 1465-1541) to paint miniatures and two borders. Horenbout had produced the miniatures in the Breviary of Eleanor of Portugal and those in the Hours of James IV of Scotland. He also briefly worked as painted in the court of Henry VIII. Horenbout included a small portrait of Charles V in one of the borders here, leading art historians to believe that Margaret gave the book to the emperor to commemorate his coronation. The manuscript resurfaced in Madrid in 1871; it was purchased by an Englishman and was donated to the British Library by a later owner. As noted in the library's online exhibit of the work, "The manuscript is outstanding for its rich decorative scheme and an unusually high number of its text pages have minutely detailed borders, initials and vignettes in deep blues, greens and rich reds, to complement the many full-page miniatures."

        Love Factories:Three Stories, with a Foreword

      Helsinki: Eurographica. (1993). First. Fine in stiff wrappers and dustwrapper as issued. One of 15 unnumbered copies "printed for the personal use of the author." Inscribed by Updike to Herb Yellin: "for Herb Yellin, All best, John 4/25/95". Herb Yellin was the founder and publisher of Lord John Press and the most frequent of Updike's fine press collaborators. He named his press after noting that the list of authors he wanted to publish all shared the same first name, chief among them John Updike, his favorite. Hub Fans Bid Kid Adieu became the press's first book in 1977 with 10 more to follow over the next 23 years. Yellin's friendship with Updike grew with each new limited edition benefitting his already enormous Updike collection, with Updike himself contributing copies of new editions of his books - often inscribed. In a 2010 interview with Yellin he noted that Updike "...liked that if anything ever happened to his own collection, he had my collection on the opposite side of the country." A notable association. An attractively printed volume and uncommon in the U.S. .

        NOTES ON BLOOD MERIDIAN

      Louisville: Bellarmine College Press, 1993. First Edition. New. Near Fine and unread in illustrated wrappers. Faint crease at the left edge of front panel from being opened, a triffle rubbing to the red on the rear panel, and an unobtrusive sticker pull on the upper right corner of the front endpaper. An extremely scarce critical work on Cormac McCarthy's 1985 masterpiece 'Blood Meridian.' The work began as Sepich's Master's thesis, and evolved into what is likely the most authoritative critical work on McCarthy's writing. Sepich's manuscript was published to coincide with "Cormac McCarthy: The First Conference,' which took place at Bellarmine College in Louisville, Kentucky in October of 1993. 'Notes on Blood Meridian' was published by the newly established Bellarmine College Press in a run of approximately 700 copies. The book was given to each attendee of the conference, with an additional 50 copies being sold. Afterwards, sales of the book lagged, and a few years later the remaining copies sold to the McCarthy Society, where a copy was given gratis to each new member of the Society until the run was exhausted. Much like the novel, Sepich's book has a mystique all it's own. Copies of the book in collectors condition, or indeed in any condition, are quite scarce, with most copies either being heavily read or full of marginalia. A superb copy. Sepich, Arnold xv-xvi.
