        The Statutes of the Realm. 1235-1713. 12 Vols. Large Folio. Reprint

      1993. [Great Britain]. Statutes of the Realm. Printed by Command of His Majesty King George the Third. In Pursuance of an Address of the House of Commons of Great Britain. From Original Records and Authentic manuscripts. Vols. 1-9, in 10 books (1235-1713); vol. 10 Alphabetical Index; Vol. 11 Chronological Index. Together 12 books. London: G. Eyre and A. Strahan, 1810-1828. Limited edition reprint. Buffalo: W.S. Hein, 1993. New. * The best and most authoritative edition of this work. Despite recognition of the need for an official edition of English statute law as early as the mid-1500's, it was not until 1800 when a Select Committee of the House of Commons reported such a need that a Record Commission was appointed and this edition resulted. This massive set sets forth the statutes in the original language. If that language is not English, the English translation is provided in parallel columns. For a statute to appear in this edition there is "raise[d] a presumption in favour of its authority." Holdsworth, A History of English Law, 312. A lengthy introduction examining the previous editions and describing the methodology of this edition precedes the statutes themselves. The statutes are followed by eight appendices and 20 charters (beginning with the Charter of Liberties of Henry I).

        PIN LIE DUAN SHE; A SPECIAL EXHIBITION OF SUNGHUA INKSTONE : COMPARABLE TO THE BEST TUAN AND SHE INKSTONES Songhua shi yan te zhan = A Special exhibition of Sunghua inkstone : comparable to the best Tuan and She inkstones

      Taipei: National Palace Museum. Fine in Fine dust jacket. 1993. First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. 9575621573 . Mandarin Chinese and English Edition; Color Illustrations; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 322 pages; PIN LIE DUAN SHE; A SPECIAL EXHIBITION OF SUNGHUA INKSTONE : COMPARABLE TO THE BEST TUAN AND SHE INKSTONES. 1st ptg Sept 1993. In a cloth slipcase [NF]. Text is in both Chinese and English. 91 photographic plates [some are full page], of stones in beautiful colors along with numerous textural cuts in b/w. I can do no better than to quote Chi, Jo-hsin's brief summary of their history. The combination of brush, paper, ink stick and inkstone, commonly known as the "Four Treasures of the Scholar's Studio," make up the principal tools of the Chinese literati. Made of most durable material—stone slabs, jade, ceramics or lacquer—the inkstone is the best preserved of the Four Treasures. The history of the inkstone proper begins in the Warring States period (ca. 5th century B. C. -3rd century B. C. ). Traditionally, the tuan stones of Kuangtung, she stones of An-huei, t'ao-ho stones of Kansuh and red ribbon stones of Shantung were the prestigious. Scant attention, however, was paid to the sunghua stone. Materials for sunghua inkstones are found in the Chi-lin and Liaoning provinces. Stones found in Chi-lin have green striations, while stones from Liaoning have either yellow and green or purple and green striations. Yet another stone, found in the northeast and featuring yellow striations, is also classified as a type of sunghua stone. In terms of stone quality, the sunghua inkstones from Chi-lin were most highly regarded, considered to be "comparable to the best tuan and she inkstones." Prior to the Ch'ing dynasty, sunghua stones were primarily used as whetstones. The emperor K'ang-hsi, however, elevated its status to inkstone material, and sunghua inkstones and ink boxes became popular during the reigns of Yung-cheng and Ch'ien-lung. Due to the belief that the origin of the sunghua stone was at the heart of Manchuria, these inkstones became important diplomatic and political gifts. The Sunghua Inkstones of the K'ang-hsi periodInscriptions found on inkstones from the reign of K'ang-hsi are numerous, ranging from the standard imperial reign mark ("Year of K'ang-hsi") to various laudatory imperial seals. Longer and more elegant inscriptions praising the quality of the stone, such as "Used in tranquility, this inkstone will last lifetimes," are also common. The decorative motifs found on K'ang-hsi inkstones often depict traditional and classical patterns. A fish fossil or a small window of glass is often used as a lid, and shells likewise are inlaid on the ink pool. Shapes of inkstones themselves vary greatly, taking square, circular, oblong, and rectangular forms, while ink boxes take on more adventurous non-geometric shapes such as fish and magnolia. The Sunghua Inkstones of the Yung-cheng periodDuring the reign of the emperor Yung-cheng, innovative designs in the shapes of the inkstones began appearing, imitating such forms as bamboo, ju-i heads, gourds and intersecting circles. The designs on the periphery and interior of the ink pool, the inkstone periphery, and the lid face incorporated auspicious symbols, which were used in various inscriptions. In addition to auspicious inscriptions, the tradition of adding imperial reign marks, customary during the K'ang-hsi reign, continued. The Sunghua Inkstones of the Ch'ien-lung periodInscriptions of the Ch'ien-lung period are also numerous, from the imperial mark to imperial seals expressing Ch'ien-lung's favor and prayers for eternal prosperity. During this period, attention to design on the face of the inkstone gave way to a new emphasis on ink pool shapes. Because court painters often acted as designers for the inkstones, designs found on the cover of the inkstones were identical to the painting styles of the court at the time. The covers of the inkstones became magnificently similar to the imperial landscape, floral, and fauna paintings of the time. Author: Chi, Jo-hsin .

        Defensive Book, Riddle Book, Ghost Book

      N.p.: Skeptical Press, 1993, 1993, 1992. Three small octavo volumes. (7); (4); (10)ff. Each volume is one of fifteen copies. A collection of unusual artist’s books. Defensive Book is an expression of paranoia and fear, underscoring its point by ending with the repeated words “Don’t trust anybody.” The book bristles with pins embedded between the pages. Each page becomes progressively smaller in size, and as a result the pins become increasingly more exposed and extend from the edges of the pages. Adding to the ominous tone, rust spots from the pins have bled through the paper. In Riddle Book, intaglio prints are suspended within windows in each page, and are accompanied by cryptic text. Ghost Book is printed in faint gray ink on delicate, transparent leaves of a kozo-sulphite paper called “silk tissue.” The medium is suited to the book’s nebulous subject matter, memory, as the narrator recalls the final days and death of her grandmother. An extremely fine set, housed together in a cloth-covered slipcase.

        Language and Thought. Anshen Transdisciplinary Lectureships in Art, Science and the Philosophy of Culture. Monograph Three.

Excellent condition with only minor signs of wear. The Frick Collection. As a linguist, Chomsky aims not only at making a technical contribution with his generative theory of language but also at integrating his linguistic theory into a wider view of the relationship between language and the human mind. The crux of this view is his hypothesis that human beings are born with an innate knowledge of universal principles underlying the structure of human language. His ideas have exerted a powerful influence on other disciplines by restoring language to a central position in cognitive psychology and in the philosophy of the mind. The wider impact of his redefinition of the subject gives him a permanent place in the intellectual history of the twentieth century. Central to Chomsky's analysis is the distinction he draws between linguistic competence (knowledge of the system of rules that govern language) and an individual's actual performance as a user of language. A Dr. Klor de Alva points out, "Chomsky's sober text makes clear why an avoidance of dogmatism and reductionism, in the human and natural sciences - as in all things- and a well-founded recognition of the limits of cognition are not only methodologically useful but also conceptually necessary."

        Quiller Meridian

      London -Headline, 1993 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The scarce first English edition of 'Elleston Trevor's Cold War thriller, seventeenth in the Quiller series. With illustrated dustwrapper designed by David Bull. The Quiller series focuses on a solitary, highly capable spy (named for Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch) who works (generally alone) for a government bureau that doesn't exist and narrates his own adventures. Quiller (not his real name) occupies a literary middle ground between James Bond and John le Carr. He is a skilled driver, pilot, diver, and linguist, but does not carry a gun. Quiller narrates his adventures in first person, addressing the reader in an informal tone. The series is very stylized, featuring intense depictions of spy tradecraft and professional relationships, surprising jump cuts between chapters, and deep, sometimes self-pitying interior monologues. The first of the Quiller novels, The Berlin Memorandum (1965) (retitled The Quiller Memorandum in the US) won an Edgar Award, from the Mystery Writers of America, for Best Novel. Elleston Trevor (17 February 1920 21 July 1995) was a British novelist who wrote under several pseudonyms. Trevor worked in many genres, but is principally remembered for his 1964 adventure story The Flight of the Phoenix, written as Elleston Trevor, and for a series of Cold War thrillers featuring the British secret agent Quiller, written under the pseudonym Adam Hall. Condition: In a black cloth binding with gilt lettering to the spine, in original unclipped dustwrapper. Externally, dustwrapper is very good and soundwith just some shelfwear, a closed tear and slight chipping. The book is excellent with minimal shelfwear, just one or two slight marks. Internally, firmly bound, bright and clean throughout. Slight bumping to bottom edge of textblock. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED with a VERY GOOD INDEED dustwrapper..

        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.

        Ornette Coleman: A Harmolodic Life SIGNED By Ornette Coleman

      Morrow, New York 1993 - SIGNED in black ink at the half title page by Ornette Coleman. The ticket for the concert at which the signature was obtained is laid in, dated Wed. Sept. 26, 2007 for a performance at Royce Hall, UCLA , as part of the university's Alive! Concert Series; also laid is a 4" by 6" coloured photograph of Ornette taken at the signing. In quarter bound blue cloth with black paper boards, hint of spotting to top edge, else fine, in a like dust jacket, unclipped, now in a mylar sleeve. For more than fifty years, Ornette Coleman (born 1930), has astonished, delighted and infuriated his audiences in creating some of the most daring and innovative music of our time. He is now rightly considered, with Armstrong and Parker, one of the great "architects" of jazz who has radically changed the way we listen to it. Still flourishing in his eighties, Coleman has only recently received some of the honours due him, among them, in 2007, a Pulitzer Prize for his recording Sound Grammar and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. This is the first comprehensive biography of the great saxophonist and composer by free jazz critic and scholar, Litweiler, who is also the author of The Freedom Principal: Jazz After 1958. The book is a vivid portrait of Coleman's brilliant and controversial career in its many incarnations, which makes extensive use of unpublished interviews, detailed and insightful musical analysis and includes a comprehensive discography. Given his reputedly retiring and reticent nature and advanced age, Coleman autographs are increasingly uncommon and book signatures, very scarce. An uncommon jazz collectible in fine condition.
