        Butterfly Stories [Copy I of III, The Publisher's Copy, Signed by Vollmann]

      Andre Deutsch|~| (London): Andre Deutsch. (1993). A novel by the National Book Award-winning author, the second volume in what has come to be known as his "Prostitution Trilogy." Vollmann's books often deal with characters on the fringes of society, and when a section of this novel was published in Esquire magazine -- part of the story "More Benadryl, Whined the Journalist" -- it was taken by many to be nonfiction, as the author's actual exploits as recounted in his nonfiction were as extreme as his fiction. This is one of a limited edition of three Roman-numeraled copies prepared by the publisher, this being Copy I of III -- the publisher's own copy of the most limited issue of this title, signed by the author. Bound in full red morocco in red cloth slipcase. Fine in a fine slipcase. . First Edition. Hardcover.

        The Spirit of St. Andrews Manuscript

      1993 - A unique, interesting and historic item, the publisher's manuscript for the Spirit of St. Andrews, by Alister MacKenzie. MacKenzie designed some of the greatest courses in the world including Cypress Point, Royal Melbourne and with Bobby Jones, Augusta National. In 1993, Raymund Haddock, an insurance agent from Boulder, Colorado found a manuscript from a book written by MacKenzie, but lost for over 60 years. Haddock is the grandson of MacKenzie¿s second wife Hilda. Haddock¿s father transcribed the book for Alister MacKenzie in the early 1930s soon after traveling from the UK to join his mother Hilda and Alister at Pasatiempo, where they were living. Haddock discovered the carbon typescript (typed on carbon paper) in a desk he inherited from his father, who had an office at Pasatiempo Golf Club in Santa Cruz, California. Mackenzie designed Pasatiempo and used to live off the sixth fairway, and when he died he asked that his ashes be spread over the course. As Haddock told Sports Illustrated in 1995, ¿I stumbled upon it. I came across a package of pages which I had understood to be notes for a book on camouflage that MacKenzie had been working on when he died.¿ Instead, the package contained seven chapters of the great man declaiming on golf courses and golf¿some of it echoing his classic 1920 volume, Golf Architecture, his only other book, but much of it fresh, including a delirious final chapter in which the former British Army surgeon and Boer War veteran rails against ¿Bolshevism¿ and prescribes golf as the tonic for world peace.¿ The introduction to the book was written by Bobby Jones, also in the 1930s, and is included. The book was published by Sleeping Bear Press in 1995 in two editions. A standard trade edition of 268 pages and a special limited edition of 324 which included the full content of the text including a lot of technical advice for greenskeepers. This copy was obtained from the publisher and contains the full text. 333 pages, unbound. Very rare, as only a handful of copies exist. We specialize in golf books.

      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).

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 .
