      19th century], [Burma - Unbound between a pair of wooden coverboards, lacquered in red and with gilt decoration on outer surfaces, covers and text leaves with a single hole for tying. All within a dark red morocco-backed cloth box The Kammavaca is a Pali term describing verses from the Tipitaka that relate to rituals of monastic life and ordination. It is considered to be one of the most sacred of Burmese religious texts often commissioned by lay-people as works of merit when a son entered a Buddhist monastery. " Kammavaca are volumes of one, five, or nine extracts from the Theravadin Vinaya , each relating to specific ceremonies associated with monks. Noel F. Singer writes that the earliest kammavaca consisted of folios made of plain palm leaves, each of which had four lines of square-inked script on a gold or silver background." ("Kammavaca Texts: Their Covers and Binding Ribbons," Arts of Asia , 23, May-June 1993) "In the 17th century, folios began to be made of pieces of cloth coated with lacquer and painted with cinnabar, and the square letters were written in thick, black lacquer. On rare occasions, folios were of ivory. Designs in gilt, which had been reserved for the ends of folios, end papers, and wooden coverboards, now began to appear between the lines of text. By the end of the 19th century, the lines of script on the folio increased to six or seven and sheets of brass or copper were introduced as folios." (John Falconer, and others, Myanmar Style Art, Architecture and Design of Burma , Hong Kong, 1998, p. 177). (22 1/2 x 5 3/16 inches). 16 leaves (5 3/16 x 22 1/2 inches), each lacquered in red with elaborate overall decoration in gilt, 14 leaves with lines of black/dark brown lacquer text in square script (known as 'magyi-zi) recto and verso, two leaves with text on one side only.

        A Suitable Boy

      Sixth Chamber Press, London 1993 - London: Sixth Chamber Press, 1993. First Edition, First Printing. As new. This copy of the Sixth Chamber Press edition is letter "Y" of the 26 copies lettered A-Z, bound in full leather and with a signed unique holograph quotation from the book. The quotation in this copy is the very first sentence of the book, which starts with a "Y": "'You too will marry a boy I choose,' said Mrs Rupa Mehra firmly to her daughter." This is thus the most desirable copy of a highly popular, complex and moving novel. In contrast to Seth's rewarding beauty of language, his publisher Anthony Cheetham called the 1993 Booker judges (Gowrie, Beer, Chisholm, Clee and Todd) a "bunch of wankers" for not shortlisting the book - a crude comment, though we find it entirely appropriate. CHF 3'250. This item is part of our Catalogue 5: 100 Key Books, a copy of which you can order from us at YGRbooks. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes.

Laid in is a Voices of Literature catalogue, where these books were signed. Rather uncommon, especially signed. Kushner's most famous work, a self-described "gay fantasia" describes an angel crashing to earth to summon a gay man dying from AIDS from his sick bed as a kind of prophet. The story takes place in the mid 1980's, when young gay men were expected to tend to the ill among them, while simultaneously facing their own mortality. "I struggle with the question of whether there is or there isn't anything beyond this material world, and I've never found an answer that feels in any way definitive. I can't leave the question alone either." [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Wise Words about Letter Writing

      Baltimore: Xavier Press, 1993. 19pp. A timeless essay by Lewis Carroll on the art of correspondence, illustrated with two pasted-in postage stamps promoting letter-writing and a fold-out sample of a letter by the author. In a striking designer binding by Dominic Riley featuring gilt-tooled envelopes and abstracted stamps in onlays of yellow, green, and plum on black morocco. These panels were inlaid into overlapping strips of dark brown goatskin, and the title is tooled in gilt down the spine. The design is segmented into panels that are slightly offset from each other, introducing tension and movement into the design. Between the panels are columns of gilt dots, and the dots are repeated inside the covers on bright green morocco doublures. Violet suede flyleaves and jewel-toned endpapers complete the production. The edges are painted with blue, green, yellow, and violet acrylic, which was then burnished and waxed for a smooth finish. Housed in a black clamshell cloth box lined with vibrant turquoise suede. Riley studied with Paul Delrue and at the London College of Printing before starting his own bookbinding studio in 1994. He co-founded the bookbinding program at the San Francisco Center for the Book in 1996, and returns there annually to teach and lecture. Elected a Fellow of Designer Bookbinders in 2008, Riley's bindings can be found in many institutional and private collections in the United States and United Kingdom, including the British Library. Extremely fine. (2 5/8 by 2 1/8; 66x52mm).

        VISIONAIRE NO. 10: THE ALPHABET (WINTER 1993-1994)

      (VISIONAIRE). Gan, Stephen, James Kaliardos & Cecilia Dean, Editors. VISIONAIRE NO. 10: THE ALPHABET (WINTER 1993-1994). New York: Visionaire Publishing, 1993. First Edition 1/1500. Folio. Loose Plates in a Portfolio. Fashion Quarterly. Near Fine/No Jacket - As Issued. Individual sheets laid into a die-cut printed portfolio, profusely illustrated in color and b&w. Designed by Gregory Foley. Published in an edition of one thousand, five hundred copies, this is the ninth installment of everyone's favorite long-running luxe fashion quarterly, Visionaire. "Greg Foley, who had been collaborating with us on our cover designs since the day he graduated from Rhode Island School of Design, really went to town with this one. He sliced out every letter he fancied and created one gigantic collage that we then photographed and printed. The concept was exciting: The B from Harper's Bazaar and the V from Vogue could all appear on our cover, along with many other famous typefaces. In the end it even became a kind of guessing game: ''Name that logo.'' The only drawback was that for months after this cover was made, there was not a magazine, phone book, or cereal box in the house that didn't have a hole cut out of it. The holographic metallic foil stamping also made this one of our most memorable covers. As for the contents, we assigned each of the contributing artists a different letter of the alphabet. For the first time, the directions were very specific, but even so, many artists took the challenge and proceeded as if they had been given carte blanche". Its contributors include editor Stephen Gan, Nick Knight, Robert Medvedz, Dovanna Pagowska, Jeffrey Fulvimani, Tim Rollins + K.O.S., Ruben Toledo, Bill Cunningham, Steven Meisel, James Dignan, Steven Klein, James Vance, Kareem Iliya, Bruce Weber, Francois Berthoud, Robert Adams, Stevan Dohan, Michael Capotosto, Miguel Calvo, Florentino J.

        The Alchemist

      San Francisco: Harper Collins, 1993. First edition. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by Paulo Coelho on the half title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. The Alchemist is the magical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure as extravagant as any ever found. From his home in Spain he journeys to the markets of Tangiers and across the Egyptian desert to a fateful encounter with the alchemist.The story of the treasures Santiago finds along the way teaches us, as only a few stories have done, about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, above all, following our dreams. Every few decades a book is published that changes the lives of its readers forever. The Alchemist is such a book.

      Wien, 2. VIII. 1991-4. VII. 1993. - 24½ SS. (Manuskript) u. 9½ SS. (Briefe). 4to. bzw. 8vo. Mit 5 (davon 4 eh.) Kuverts. An den Schriftsteller und Filmemacher Adolf Opel (geb. 1935), dem sie mitteilt, daß sie "gerne an einer solchen Filmdokumentation mitwirken [würde]" (Brief v. 2. VIII. 1991) und den sie darauf hinweist, daß das Deutsche Literaturarchiv ihr "Archiv" in Verwahrung habe, er aber jederzeit daselbst Einsicht nehmen könne (Durchschlag eines Briefes an das DLA beiliegend). Ein halbes Jahr später dankt sie herzlichst für Opels schönen Film: "[.] ich habe mich gefreut! Ich hab mich gern angeschaut [.] Auch der 'Aufbau' des Films gefällt mir gut [.] Daß mein zweiter 'großer' Roman 'Alle unsere Spiele' zu kurz gekommen ist, war gewiß mein Fehler [.] Das Wort 'Vergangenheitsbewältigung' kann man ja nicht mehr hören und noch weniger aussprechen und zu umschreiben, was gemeint ist, ist umständlich [.]" (Brief v. 2. I. 1992). - Weiters dankt die Autorin für einige Texte, die Opel verfaßt hat: "Um eine Ergänzung möchte ich ganz dringend bitten: ich halte nämlich meinen (letzten) Roman 'Alle unsere Spiele' 1977 für ebenso gut und ebenso wichtig wie das Jugendwerk [.] Als 'Korrektur' wünsche ich mir auch, daß 'Kardinal Mindszenty' nicht bei den 'nahestehenden' Persönlichkeiten genannt wird, - ich habe nie persönlich mit ihm gesprochen! - stattdessen aber Theodor Kramer [.] Zur Aufzählung der Orden gehört unbedingt das 'Ehrenzeichen für Wissenschaft und Kunst', 1986, die höchste Auszeichnung des öster. Staates! Mindert es nicht die 'Seriosität' Ihrer Hinweise, wenn Sie behaupten, ich gelte 'als führende katholische Schriftstellerin im deutschen Sprachraum'?? Schön wär's! [.]" (Brief v. 30. VIII. 1992). - Das mit "Entwurf des statements zu Filmaufnahme. Der Fischer (?)" überschriebene, mit zahlreichen Bearbeitungsmerkmalen (Korrekturen, Streichungen u. a.) versehene Manuskript ist eine eindringliche Reflexion der 85jährigen Schriftstellerin über ihr Leben, über Begegnungen und Korrespondenz mit Rainer Maria Rilke, Stefan Zweig, Klaus Mann, Theodor Kramer, Theodor Däubler u. a. - Der aus Wien stammende Adolf Opel war nach seiner Promotion als Journalist, Kulturpublizist, Kritiker und Regisseur tätig. 1966 schrieb er zusammen mit Georg Tressler (geb. 1917) das Drehbuch zu dessen "Weibsteufel" (nach dem gleichnamigen Theaterstück von Karl Schönherr). Der Schwerpunkt seines filmischen Schaffens liegt in der Auseinandersetzung mit Schriftstellern und Literaten wie H.C. Artmann, Franz Theodor Csokor, Albert Drach, Victor Frankl, Erika Mitterer, Hans Weigel, Simon Wiesenthal u. a. Als Herausgeber zeichnet er u. a. für die Edition der Werke von Adolf Loos verantwortlich; zu seinen eigenen Werken zählen neben Dramen (darunter "Durst vor dem Kampf", 1969) Arbeiten über Adolf Loos, Ingeborg Bachmann sowie Wanda und Leopold von Sacher-Masoch. - Beiliegend das Programm eines der Dichterin zu Ehren von der Österr.

        ABRAHAM BLOEMAERT AND HIS SONS. Paintings and Prints.

      Aetas Aurea, Vol. XI - Cloth bound with dusjacket, as new !! 1993. 2 vols. in 4to. VIII, 710 pp. text and over 1250 ills. on 439 plts. (35 in color).Biography by Marten Jan Bok. This is the first monograph on the leading Utrecht painter Abraham Bloemaert (1566-1651) and his four sons who were painters and engravers. Bloemaert emerges as the foremost master of Utrecht, his stature comparable to that of his contemporaries Hendrick Goltzius and Cornelis van Haarlem.The output of Abraham Bloemaert is considerable: over 200 extant paintings and 625 prints designed by him and engraved by such masters as Matham, Saenredam, Bolswert and Cornelis and Frederick Bloemaert. His stylistic development during an activity of sixty years leads from mannerist works in the style of Spranger and the school of Haarlem to a realist approach, a Caravaggesque interlude, a stint at court art, and a final classicizing style. He treated a multitude of themes from the Old and New Testament, altarpieces, mythological works, landscapes, and genre pieces, with important contributions in each field. A fervent Catholic with Jesuit ties, he is the chief representative of Dutch Catholic art. Connected with his lifelong teaching activity are the 166 prints of the Tekenboek. The book opens with an introductory text which sums up the art of Abraham and places it into the context of his time. The bulk of the book is the catalogue which includes in chronological sequence all the extant and the firmly documented lost paintings by Abraham, with copies and imitations, and all the original engravings designed by him. They comprise the 380 engravings by Frederick and the 60 engravings by Cornelis Bloemaert designed by their father. Separately catalogued are 30 dated drawings which provide support for undated works, and 35 comparative works by other masters. This is followed by a complete study of the fine œuvre of Hendrick Bloemaert, the closest continuator of Abraham, hitherto largely neglected: 120 extant paintings of genre scenes, religious themes, portraits, and mythologies. Finally a study of Adriaen Bloemaert. A large proportion of the works of Abraham and his sons are here studied and reproduced for the first time. The book closes with a fully documented biography of Abraham Bloemaert and his sons and a list of pupils; this portion is the work of the Utrecht historian Marten Jan Bok. 777 g.

      May 1993 - This is a typed letter on personal letterhead dated May 30, 1993 and is signed Richard J. McDonald in blue ink. The letter says as follows: "Dear Mashihiro: / Many thanks for your very nice letter. In regard to the founding / of McDonald's, your real father is correct. / My brother and I founded McDonald's in 1940. This was in San / Bernardino, California. We never even met Ray Kroc until 1954. / We conceived the idea of what is now called "fast food" in 1948. / In 1953, my brother and I began a franchise program of McDonald's. / Our first franchise agent was a man named William Tansey. We opened / 9 McDonald's in 1953 but Mr. Tansey became ill and had to withdraw / from the franchised program. / Mr. Ray Kroc, who had been selling us milk shake machines, applied / for the position of franchise agent and we hired him in 1955. / Please tell your father I want to congratulate him for knowing who / really founded McDonald's. I am a little surprised that your host / father did not wonder why the chain of restaurants is called / McDonald's if the founder was Ray Kroc. / I am a little proud that I was the one who conceived and designed the / so called "Golden Arches." / Again, Mashihiro, many thanks for your letter and I hope that someday / we may meet. The Japanese have been very good to McDonald's and I also want to thenk (sic) them for their wonderful support. / Sincerely, / (signature) / Richard J. McDonald / P.S. I wish your father would write to me and tell me how he started / his career. / After being partners and in business for over 30 years, my brother / and I returned to New Hampshire where I was born. My / brother died a few years later. Fine Condition [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Wise Words about Letter Writing

      Baltimore: Xavier Press, 1993. 19pp. A timeless essay by Lewis Carroll on the art of correspondence, illustrated with two pasted-in postage stamps promoting letter-writing and a fold-out sample of a letter by the author. In a striking designer binding by Dominic Riley featuring gilt-tooled envelopes and abstracted stamps in onlays of yellow, green, and plum on black morocco. These panels were inlaid into overlapping strips of dark brown goatskin, and the title is tooled in gilt down the spine. The design is segmented into panels that are slightly offset from each other, introducing tension and movement into the design. Between the panels are columns of gilt dots, and the dots are repeated inside the covers on bright green morocco doublures. Violet suede flyleaves and jewel-toned endpapers complete the production. The edges are painted with blue, green, yellow, and violet acrylic, which was then burnished and waxed for a smooth finish. Housed in a black clamshell cloth box lined with vibrant turquoise suede. Riley studied with Paul Delrue and at the London College of Printing before starting his own bookbinding studio in 1994. He co-founded the bookbinding program at the San Francisco Center for the Book in 1996, and returns there annually to teach and lecture. Elected a Fellow of Designer Bookbinders in 2008, Riley's bindings can be found in many institutional and private collections in the United States and United Kingdom, including the British Library. Extremely fine. (2 5/8 by 2 1/8; 66x52mm).
