      Enitharmon Editions Ltd., London 1993 - 64pp, with an individual signed lithograph, a lithographic frontispiece and four photogravures bound into the book. Beautifully illustrated by Jim Dine, this is the deluxe edition of author Neil Curry's colloquial version of the closing books of Homer's Odyssey in which he has "scrubbed the story free from all its side-tracks and digressions so as to leave clear one thread of Odysseus's final journey: from the shores of Ithaca to the marriage-bed where he is finally reunited with Penelope". Limited to seventy-five copies only, it is hand-printed in 14 point Monotype Baskerville on Canaletto 160gsm (fine) and bound and slipcased by The Fine Bindery. Jim Dine's signed original 12 1/2 x 9 3/4" etching of "The Head of Homer" (contained loose in a wallet in the slipcase) was printed on 300gsm Hahnemuhle at the Spring Street Workshop in New York. The lithographic frontispiece and four photogravures bound into the book all reproduce drawings made by the artist in 1987-8 from Greek and Roman statuary at the Glyptotek in Munich, and were printed in London by Pauper's Press and Hope Sufferance Press. A pristine copy SIGNED by the author, as issued. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its weight and value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase.

        Merci facteur, correspondance avec Pierre Billon

      Revue Travers N° 47, Fougerolles été 93, 1993 - 88 pages, 30 X 16, 5 cm Edition originale du premier des trois N° que Philippe Marchal à consacré à Jules Mougin dans sa remarquable revue Travers, sous une couverture évoquant une boite aux lettres, fac-similés d’une très grande qualité sur papier pelure de 40 lettres de Mougins à Claude Billon lui aussi facteur et 4 reproductions en couleurs de dessins de Mougin, le fac-similé de la page 33 est décollé, mais parfaitement conservé. Le livre est truffé de deux articles, le premier de 1961, ainsi que d’une carte postale fabriquée à partir d’un carton à gâteaux, avec un petit dessin de chien adressée à Monsieur et madame Mercier. Le tout en parfait état Jules Mougin (1912-2010) le plus souvent désigné comme le facteur-poète fut un proche de Giono, Calaferte, Dubuffet et Chaissac. Dessinateur, peintre et sculpteur, cette partie de son œuvre, trop influencée par Chaissac, n’est pas la plus intéressante. C’est l’immense épistolier, admiré par Hervé Bazin, Bernard Clavel, Robert Sabatier et Georges Simenon, qu’il convient de retenir. Se servant de la Poste comme d’une maison d’édition, il aurait écrit environ 40.000 lettres, parfois illustrées de petits dessins, dont les enveloppes portent le plus souvent la mention « Merci Facteur », qui se caractérisent par une belle calligraphie toute en plein et déliés et par le parti-pris presque enfantin de poétiser les choses les plus simples et de chanter la nature. Mougin est considéré aujourd’hui comme l’un des plus importants écrivains dits « bruts ». [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        BIRDS OF NEW GUINEA (VOL. 2) (AUTHENTIC FACSIMILE EDITION) Cuckoo-Shrike, Caterpillar-Catcher, Microeca, Gerygone, Flycatcher, Robin, Todopsis, Fantail

      Hill House. New;. 1993. Hardcover. 58 Plates. This is not a mere reproduction. This is an exact facsimile of an original held in the Libraries of the British Museum (Natural History) in London and Tring. It is not a reproduction, because no camera was used in transferring the images from the originals. The paper used is 130 gsm mat art paper. This facsimile carries faithfully every spot, mark or stain as the original. It also carries the original Museum Department of Zoology stamps, and librarian's annotations. The color printing is so accurate that, from behind glass, the naked eye would be unable to distinguish the original from the facsimile. This facsimile is exactly the same size as the original (Imperial Folio: 22" x 15"). It is cased-in and bound between 4 mm. The boards are 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 book, leaving the publication data printed only on the very last page at the end of the book block. This book is individually numbered on the inside front board, hand wrapped in protective brown paper, and placed in its own crush-proof outer carton. The carton is then sealed, numbered and signed on the outside by the printer's quality control officer. ; Vol. 2 .

        THE GIVER and THE MESSENGER

      Boston:: Houghton Mifflin Co.,. 1993. First edition. Two volumes, each SIGNED by Lowry and with the brochure from the signing event laid in. The GIVER won the 1994 Newbery Medal and has sold more than 10 million copies in Australia, Canada, and the United States. It is on many middle-school reading lists but is also on many challenged-book lists and appeared on the American Library Association's list of most challenged books of the 1990s. GIVER and MESSENGER are the first and third books in her GIVER quartet, which traces the thirteenth year in the life of Jonas, who lives in a society that has eliminated pain and strife by converting to "Sameness," a plan that has also eradicated emotional depth from the lives of the people. Jonas, who is selected to inherit the position of Receiver of Memory--the storer of memories from the time before Sameness--learns the truth about his dystopian society and struggles with the weight of his position (Wikipedia). Made into the 2014 movie THE GIVER, starring Brenton Thwaites, Jeff Bridges, and Meryl Streep. GIVER is fine in fine dust jacket. MESSENGER has a name on the dark-gray front endpaper, tiny closed tear to top edge of spine, and barest nick to one rear corner but is otherwise fine in fine dust jacket.

        Kammavaca

      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.

        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]

I can't leave the question alone either." [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
