        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.

        Writer T.C.Boyle in Cheltenham - 1993.

      Cheltenham. From the library of irish photographer John Minihan. Titled and signed by John Minihan on the back of the photograph. Beautifully framed.. 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. The 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. 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.

        The Wine-Dark Sea.

      New York, W.W. Norton & Company, Inc. 1993 - Advance Reader's Copy. 14 x 21cm. 261 pages. Original softcover. Excellent condition. Signed by the author Patrick O'Brian on the titlepage. Though the Jack Aubrey-Stephen Maturin books can be profitably read separately, as fans know, together they read as one long, wonderful novel. This 16th installment (following The Truelove ) is no doubt the best chapter yet. In the early 1800s, Bluff Jack, captain of the privateer Surprise , steers his frigate across the Pacific to South America, around Cape Horn and into the Atlantic, taking French and American prizes, fighting off a Yankee Man of War and suffering dire eye and leg wounds for his trouble. Subtle Stephen, ship's doctor and British intelligence agent, almost pulls off a coup in Peru and must escape across the Andes, losing some toes to frostbite for his efforts. Favorite characters reappear here: Killick, Jack's crabby steward; Sarah and Emily Sweeting, precocious Melanesian waifs attached to Maturin's sick-berth; Sam, Jack's illegitimate black son and rising Churchman. The naval actions are bang-on and bang-up--fast, furious and bloody--and the Andean milieu is as vivid as the shipboard scenes. As usual, readers can revel in the symbiotic friendship of Jack and Stephen, who make for a marvelous duo, whether in their violin and cello duets or in their sharp dialogue.

        The Wine-Dark Sea.

      Advance Reader's Copy. New York, W.W. Norton & Company, Inc., 1993. 14 x 21cm. 261 pages. Original softcover. Excellent condition. Signed by the author Patrick O'Brian on the titlepage. Though the Jack Aubrey-Stephen Maturin books can be profitably read separately, as fans know, together they read as one long, wonderful novel. This 16th installment (following The Truelove ) is no doubt the best chapter yet. In the early 1800s, Bluff Jack, captain of the privateer Surprise , steers his frigate across the Pacific to South America, around Cape Horn and into the Atlantic, taking French and American prizes, fighting off a Yankee Man of War and suffering dire eye and leg wounds for his trouble. Subtle Stephen, ship's doctor and British intelligence agent, almost pulls off a coup in Peru and must escape across the Andes, losing some toes to frostbite for his efforts. Favorite characters reappear here: Killick, Jack's crabby steward; Sarah and Emily Sweeting, precocious Melanesian waifs attached to Maturin's sick-berth; Sam, Jack's illegitimate black son and rising Churchman. The naval actions are bang-on and bang-up--fast, furious and bloody--and the Andean milieu is as vivid as the shipboard scenes. As usual, readers can revel in the symbiotic friendship of Jack and Stephen, who make for a marvelous duo, whether in their violin and cello duets or in their sharp dialogue.
