        Writer T.C.Boyle in Cheltenham - 1993.

      1993. Cheltenham, 1993. Original / Vintage Photograph on archival paper. Image: 21,5 cm x 30 cm / Framed: 36 cm x 44 cm. From the library of irish photographer John Minihan. Titled and signed by John Minihan on the back of the photograph. Beautifully framed. John Minihan is an Irish photographer, born in Dublin in 1946 and raised in Athy, County Kildare. At the age of 12 he was brought to live in London, and went on to become an apprentice photographer with the Daily Mail. At the age of 15 he won the Evening Standard amateur photography competition. At 21 he became the youngest staff photographer for the Evening Standard. For thirty years he remained in London, returning every year to his hometown of Athy to record the people and their daily lives.nnThe work of Minihan in Athy makes up a large part of his canon. Minihan began taking photos in Athy when he was 16. The photos are an attempt to document the lives of the ordinary people of the town in their day to day business and also in times of joy and sadness, notably during the wake of a woman called Katy Tyrrell.nIn between documenting Athy on visits home, Minihan continued his career on Fleet Street, which included the iconic snap of the 19-year-old Lady Diana Spencer in the garden of the nursery at which she worked, the morning sun to her back, her legs in silhouette through her skirt. Diana had just been announced as the Prince of Wales's love interest and photographers raced to take her photo, Minihan having the fortune to turn up first.nOver the years Minihan developed a close relationship with many writers and his photographs of Samuel Beckett show a particular affinity between the two men. Minihans photos of Beckett are some of his best known, one in particular is described as one of the greatest photos of the twentieth century. William S. Burroughs once referred to Minihan as "a painless photographer".nnMinihan is perhaps best known for his photographs of Samuel Beckett. Minihan first expressed a desire to photograph Beckett in 1969, following Becketts winning of the Nobel Prize for literature, having noticed that all the available photos of Beckett were of a poor quality;nn 'We were running a story but discovered there were only two very vague images of Beckett taken many years before. It was like he didn't exist - that was the moment I decided I wanted to meet this man and take his photograph.'nnMinihan first encountered Beckett in London in 1980, while Beckett was working on a production of one of his own plays, Endgame. Minihan met Beckett in the Hyde Park hotel and showed him some of his photos of Athy to break the ice. The two met on a number of occasions over the next few years, but it was not until 1985 that they met in Paris. They arranged to meet in the restaurant of the Hotel PLM, a regular haunt of Beckett. At ten to five, with the light fading, Minihan took the photo that would go on to be called by some as the photograph of the twentieth century. John Calder credited Minihan with capturing,nn 'the introspective, infinitely sad gaze of a man looking into the abyss of the world's woes'.nnAmong his numerous photographic publications are Photographs: Samuel Beckett (1995); Shadows from the Pale, Portrait of an Irish Town (1996); and An Unweaving of Rainbows, Images of Irish Writers, 1996.nHe is currently a freelance photographer specialising in 'the arts'. His book of photographs of Samuel Beckett was published in 1995. His photographs of Athy have been exhibited throughout the world. He was given the freedom of Athy in 1990. Minihan currently lives and works in West Cork. nMinihan's many exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world include the Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro, 1984; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris 1986; the National Portrait Gallery, London 1987/8 and the October Gallery, London 1990 as well as the Guinness Hop Store, Dublin 1991. (Wikipedia)nnRaymond Douglas "Ray" Davies CBE (/'de?v?s/ DAY-vis; born 21 June 1944) is an English musician. He was the lead singer and songwriter for The Kinks, which he led with his younger brother, Dave. He has also acted, directed and produced shows for theatre and television.nnSince the dissolution of the Kinks in 1996, Ray Davies has embarked on a solo career as a singer-songwriter. (Wikipedia)

        A foreshadowing of 21st century art: the color and geometry of very early Turkish carpets

      New York: Oxford University Press, 1993. First edition, 4to, pp. 351; fine in limp gilded cloth with brocade pattern; acetate dust jacket with closed tear near top and small chip at fold of front flap; 600 illustrations, 98 in color, of carpets from the 13th through 15th centuries. Volume 7 of an 11 volume series that sets forth a general theory of pattern and architecture. This book introduces "the first coherent theory of structure of carpet design." "One of the most idiosynchratic carpet books ever published," it has split opinion within the textile world, with some calling it "infuriating," and others attesting to the value of its theories beyond that of textile appraisal.

        THE NIGHT MANAGER (Very Fine Pulped Version of Proof with Published Proof)

      Hodder, UK 1993 - Hodder, UK. July 1993. This package includes the (virtually unknown) pulped version of the proof and the published proof, the pulped version being quite different from the published version in parts. There are substantial differences in the narrative, there are name changes etc. The published proof consists of 447 pages and 31 chapters, the pulped version has 476 pages and 30 chapters. We show one example and describe one. In the first line of chapter 29 the ship "Iron Pasha" is mentioned. In the unpublished version it is, however, named "Iron Duke". We include digital photos of each version's final page, which are completely different, as are other portions of the book. The colour distribution on the proofs' exterior is also quite different. Take a peek at the attached digital photos. The proofs are accompanied by a bookplate signed by John Le Carre. The insured courier service cost if very, very significantly higher than the postage quoted here. There really is no comparison, once the insurance premium is added. Both items are in superb, sharp, shiny, glossy boards with immaculate spine and virginal pages. Fewer than a handful of copies of the pulped proof are said to have escaped the pulping massacre. I know of only two and heard rumours of a third - just rumours. SUPERB CONDITION AND VERY, VERY RARE. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Ristretto degli Annali ecclesiastici e secolari, con diverse considerazioni e cose particolari importanti aggiunte alle cose dette dal Cardinal Baronio et altri.

      1993. Manoscritto in tre grandi volumi in-folio di 746 cc. num.; 735 pp. num. e 379 cc. non num; 1242 pp. num. (290 x 205 mm) vergate in elegante e chiara grafia corsiva secentesca; legatura coeva in cartone rigido con tassello in pelle e titolo in oro ai dorsi (restauri). Frontespizi inquadrati in cornice disegnata a inchiostro; capolettera ornato e colorato con motivi floreali. Esemplare buono e genuino. Importante codice, sicuramente vicinissimo alla stesura originale dell'autore, che ci conserva gli Annali tassoniani dalle origini sino al 1200. L'edizione moderna curata da Pietro Puliatti (Modena, Panini, 1993) arriva fino all'anno 750. Si tratta d'uno dei più colossali monumenti storico-antiquari del sec. XVII, indiscutibile riprova della vasta erudizione del poeta modenese della "Secchia rapita". L'opera non consiste soltanto nelle aggiunte "alle cose dette dal Cardinal Baronio et altri". Questi Annali sono in realtà una vera e propria palestra per argomentazioni storiche, politiche e morali che si riflettono, attraverso una sterminata miniera di notizie, sugli avvenimenti dell'epoca in cui il Tassoni scrive.

In between documenting Athy on visits home, Minihan continued his career on Fleet Street, which included the iconic snap of the 19-year-old Lady Diana Spencer in the garden of the nursery at which she worked, the morning sun to her back, her legs in silhouette through her skirt. Diana had just been announced as the Prince of Wales's love interest and photographers raced to take her photo, Minihan having the fortune to turn up first. Over the years Minihan developed a close relationship with many writers and his photographs of Samuel Beckett show a particular affinity between the two men. Minihans photos of Beckett are some of his best known, one in particular is described as one of the greatest photos of the twentieth century. William S. Burroughs once referred to Minihan as "a painless photographer". Minihan is perhaps best known for his photographs of Samuel Beckett. Minihan first expressed a desire to photograph Beckett in 1969, following Becketts winning of the Nobel Prize for literature, having noticed that all the available photos of Beckett were of a poor quality; 'We were running a story but discovered there were only two very vague images of Beckett taken many years before. It was like he didn't exist - that was the moment I decided I wanted to meet this man and take his photograph.' Minihan first encountered Beckett in London in 1980, while Beckett was working on a production of one of his own plays, Endgame. Minihan met Beckett in the Hyde Park hotel and showed him some of his photos of Athy to break the ice. The two met on a number of occasions over the next few years, but it was not until 1985 that they met in Paris. They arranged to meet in the restaurant of the Hotel PLM, a regular haunt of Beckett. At ten to five, with the light fading, Minihan took the photo that would go on to be called by some as the photograph of the twentieth century. John Calder credited Minihan with capturing, 'the introspective, infinitely sad gaze of a man looking into the abyss of the world's woes'. Among his numerous photographic publications are Photographs: Samuel Beckett (1995); Shadows from the Pale, Portrait of an Irish Town (1996); and An Unweaving of Rainbows, Images of Irish Writers, 1996. He is currently a freelance photographer specialising in 'the arts'. His book of photographs of Samuel Beckett was published in 1995. His photographs of Athy have been exhibited throughout the world. He was given the freedom of Athy in 1990. Minihan currently lives and works in West Cork. Minihan's many exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world include the Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro, 1984; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris 1986; the National Portrait Gallery, London 1987/8 and the October Gallery, London 1990 as well as the Guinness Hop Store, Dublin 1991.
