Michael Feingold's Words are "songs" from the end of the world, where there are no more people, only empty landscapes.

This is Mr. Feingold's first published book of poetry and as such is an important literary first edition in its own right. Fine. See an Image. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Blue is water: oceans, sky and air. Silver illuminates; brown fashipns matter and greens pass beyond spring. Greys give us balance; the darks are mysteries, the tones variable; intensities reveal breath." See an Image. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Manuscript]: Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

      The Author, New York 1993 - Unbound manuscript pages. 491 leaves, typed on rectos only. The title page has a modest stain, otherwise the pages are fine. Housed in a worn paper box with a note "J.B.'s Book" on the back. Several small corrections (typos, spelling) in the text in an unknown hand. There are many significant differences between this manuscript and the final published version, including different chapter headings, rewritten passages, name changes (to protect the innocent and avoid lawsuits), exclusion of some anecdotes, and differing accounts of the same event. Inscribed by Berendt on the title page to the sister of his very close friend Bruce Kelly, a landscape architect who was responsible for designing many parts of New York's Central Park, most notably Strawberry Fields: "For Phyllis Kennedy -- With great affection. You read this manuscript before it turned into a book, and the main reason it DID become a book was the suggestions and encouragement of Bruce Kelly, your brother & my great good friend. All the best John Berendt. New York 12/13/99." In 1985 Berendt and Bruce Kelly co-edited, with others, *Rebuilding Central Park: A Management and Restoration Plan*. Reportedly, Kelly knew the Jim Williams story from his Georgia-resident sister, to whom this is inscribed, and suggested to Berendt that it would make an interesting story. Kelly died in 1993 at the age of 44, the year before Berendt's bestseller was published. Berendt wrote an essay about Kelly for the book *Loss Within Loss*, edited by Edmund White, which commemorated the lives of artists, writers, and other creative people who died of AIDS. The splendid nonfiction account of a celebrated crime in Savannah, Georgia, in which the author manages to capture the feel and character of the city and its residents. The basis for the 1997 Clint Eastwood-directed film with John Cusack, Kevin Spacey, and Jude Law. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

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

      Visionaire Publishing, New York 1993 - 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.

Band 11 und 12 mit Namenseintrag, sonst sehr guter Zustand. >>Selten angeboten!<< // OttoTaleus Eberhard BUURMAN, geb. 10.11.1890 Kirchborgum, gest. 3.3.1967 Göttingen, war Mediziner und Philologe. 1959 begann er mit der Arbeit an seinem Wörterbuch. Fußend auf dem plattdeutschen Wörterbuch von Ten Doornkaat-Koolman griff er auf andere niederdeutsche Mundartwörterbücher als Quellen zurück, aufgrund der inneren Verwandtschaft der Groninger Mundart mit dem Wort- und Sprachschatz des niederdeutschen Raumes teilweise auch auf das Nieuw Groninger Woordenboek von K. ter Laan. Als letzte große Quelle erschloß sich Buurman für sein Wörterbuch die plattdeutschen Bibelübersetzungen von Johannes Jessen und Paul Köppen. So wuchs das Werk schon bald über das zunächst angestrebte Ziel einer hochdeutsch-plattdeutschen Ausgabe des "Doornkaat" hinaus. Buurman, der möglichst jedes plattdeutsche Wort durch Satzbeispiele, Redensarten und Sprichwörter belegen wollte, gelang es, die Bildhaftigkeit des Plattdeutschen sowie dessen reiche Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten anschaulich darzustellen. Unter Vermeidung von Übersetzungen stellte er dar, daß das "Plattdeutsche hinsichtlich Stil, Wortwahl, Aussage und Satzbau kein entartetes Hochdeutsch ist, sondern eine selbständig gewachsene, uralte Sprache" (Einführung zum 1. Band). Da er sein Werk nie als philologische Arbeit oder als Ort für sprachgeschichtliche Auseinandersetzungen verstand, schrieb er sein Wörterbuch in ostfriesischer Mundart, einem Plattdeutsch, das dem in den nördlichen Teilen Niedersachsens gesprochenen Plattdeutsch trotz feststellbarer Unterschiede weitgehend ähnelt und somit auch verstanden wird. Es sollte ein Nachschlagewerk für jedermann werden und ist so konzipiert, daß es den Benutzer mühelos in den Stand setzt, zum hochdeutschen Wort "das jeweils entsprechende plattdeutsche Wortgut im Umkreis seines Sinnbereiches zu überblicken" (Einführung).

        Archive of 30 letters from Ernst Mayr to Ernst Caspari (University of Rochester) and Arthur J. Cain (University of Liverpool)

      Ernst Mayr 1980s-1990s. UNBOUND. 30 letters both ALS and TLS some 1 page, others 2 or more pages. from Ernst Mayr to Ernst Casperi (University of Rochester) and Arthur J. Cain (University of Liverpool). Cain mostly attached his answer, in photocopy, some serveral pages long. Some content: to Cain from Mayr: "thanking you for your reprints, particularly the analysis of Bauhin&#39;s Pinax. It is certainly important for the history of taxonomic methods to have a perceptive analysis of the forerunners of Linnaeus. Of course every time I deal with Linnaeus I am impressed how strongly his approach is dominated by the principles of logic" Letter dated 16 Dec. 1993 with enclosures: "As far as Maniola is concerned, the enclosed copy of my letter to Turner will tell you what is involved. In his presentation of the case Ford did not make nearly as careful an analysis as he should have and instead distinguished rather sweepingly a western and an eastern type. I am sure someone will make a more careful study in the near future. I am also enclosing a copy of the Gmelin speech as well as a draft copy of my paper on Scientific Revolutions......The amount of interesting papers being published these days is enormous. What pleases me is that they all support the Darwinian paradigm. No matter how much certain people try to claim otherwise, this is demonstrably true." another letter "This is why Mendel was so frustrated in his later work, when he tried to apply the rules of his pea crosses to species crosses "Aren&#39;t they all hybrids?". Letters dated in the 1990s. "Locke&#39;s species concept was rather similar to one defended by Mill and now usually referred to as his "nature kind" concept." To Ernst Casperi he writes: "When one compares the writings of contemporary embryologists and evolutionists of that period one realizes how completely different the conceptual framework of the two groups were. It is particularly clear whenever the embryologists criticize the thinking of the evolutionists. This is evident not only in the writings of Spemann but also from Boveri&#39;s famous speech when he was rector of Wurzburg University... I am planning to write this spring a paper with the title with the title of "Richard&#39;s Goldschmidt&#39;s Unanswered Questions. It is usually ignored that Goldschmidt in his 1940 book raises quite a few problems which the reductionists "beanbag" geneticists are quite unable to answer." Ernst Mayr letter to Caspari dated 1986, mostly chatty about wife, grand-children "I presume you are please about Rita Levi-Montalcini got the Nobel Prize. All her early research was done with Viktor Hamburger. If he had continued this line of research, I presume he would have shared in the honor! But he got interested in other things." Included in the archive: Offprint: Systems of Ordering Data reprint from Biology and Philosophy, 1995. Author&#39;s Proof: Systems of Ordering Data. Photocopy of Disciplining Evolutionary Biology: Ernst Mayr.. by Vassiliki Betty Smocovitis Feb. 1994. at dedication Ernst Mayr has added " For Arthur with best wishes! Ernst" in ink. Ernst Mayr to Caspari letters mostly 1980s. 12 als mostly one sheet front and back. 1 tls 2 pages. Ernst Mayr to A. J. Cain letters mostly 1990s.

        Piae precationes ad missas devote celebrandas, et sacrosanctam eucharistiam sumendam. Cum variis orationibus ex bonis & probatis authoribus collectis. Rome, Aloysius Zannettus, 1604. 8vo. With woodcut title-page and some ornamented woodcut initials in the text. Contemporary richly gold-tooled brown morocco, with gauffered edges; both sided with 2 pairs of fillets along the edges with little flowers at the corners and a floral border in between; a pattern of loose gilt stamps of flowers in a spiral line, vases with flowers, lions, stars and so-called 'foglia accartocciata' ('feuilles mortes') and a crucifixion in an oval border in the centre of the front cover and the Virgin with child in an oval border in the centre of the back cover.

      CRRA (1 copy); not in BMC STC Italian; KVK; WorldCat; for the binding: Legatura romana barocca 9; G. Vianini Tolomei, ''Reliures romaines d'archives des XVe et XVIe siècles'', in: Bulletin du bibliophile, 1993, nr. 2, pl. VI. Second located copy of probably the first edition of this collection of prayers to be said before and after Mass. Later editions were published in 1609 and 1621. The magnificent baroque binding is of Roman design and can be attributed to the Soresini atelier. It is executed in the finest style of this famous family of bookbinders connected with the papal court. Founded in 1570, the bindery of Francesco Soresini and his son Prospero began to flourish after the death of Nicolo Franzese and their work is mainly related to the pontificate of Clement VIII (1592-1604). One of the most striking characteristics of the Soresini atelier is a flower within a spiral line, an important contribution to the new baroque 'fanfare style', which the family helped to perfect. This example has, on both covers, ten different stamps with these spirals ending in a fleuron, forming an harmonious decorative pattern in which more traditional stamps also appear. Some insignificant browning and spotting throughout. Good copy in a splendid fanfare binding.

In a world with no poverty, no crime, no sickness and no unemployment, and where every family is happy, 12-year-old Jonas is chosen to be the community&#39;s Receiver of Memories. Under the tutelage of the Elders and an old man known as the Giver, he discovers the disturbing truth about his utopian world and struggles against the weight of its hypocrisy. With echoes of Brave New World, in this 1994 Newbery Medal winner, Lowry examines the idea that people might freely choose to give up their humanity in order to create a more stable society. Gradually Jonas learns just how costly this ordered and pain-free society can be, and boldly decides he cannot pay the price. "A powerful and provacative novel" (The New York Times).

        A Computer Generated Concordance to the Syriac New Testament. According to the British and Foreign Bible Society's Edition. [By George Anton Kiraz]. Volumes I - IV and Volumes V - VI (Appendices I & II).

      Leiden, New York & Köln: E. J. Brill 1993.. Insgesamt 6 Bände (vollständig) / Together 6 Volumes (complete). Insgesamt 4639 Seiten. 4° (25 - 35 cm). Orig.Kunstlederbände mit goldgeprägten Titeln auf Deckeln und Rücken (Imitation leather with gilt design). [Hardcover / fest gebunden].. "The publication of this Concordance to the Syriac New Testament (Peshitta) is a landmark in Syriac scholarship. It fills a lacuna in the field which has long been felt by Syriac scholars. George Kiraz's new computer-generated Concordance (in vocalized serto script) is based on the standard British and Foreign Bible Society's edition of 1920, and will at once take its place as an essential reference tool for New Testament and for Syriac studies. Notably, it marks a very successful union of Syriac scholarship with the 'Electronic Age', specifically the field of Linguistic Computing, since the author has academic qualifications in both computer engineering and Syriac studies. Finally, it witnesses the very welcome alliance of Syrian Orthodox and Western academic scholarship. It is designed to be of service not only to western scholars and students, but also to clergy and laity of the Syriac churches, for whom the Peshitta is their 'Authorized Version.'"
