        Wise Words about Letter Writing.

      Baltimore: Xavier Press, 1993. 19pp. A timeless essay by Lewis Carroll on the art of correspondence, illustrated with two pasted-in postage stamps promoting letter-writing and a fold-out sample of a letter by the author. In a designer binding by Dominic Riley featuring gilt-tooled envelopes and abstracted stamps in onlays of yellow, green, and plum on black morocco. These panels were inlaid into overlapping strips of dark brown goatskin, and the title is tooled in gilt down the spine. The design is segmented into panels that are slightly offset from each other, introducing tension and movement into the design. Between the panels are columns of gilt dots, and the dots are repeated inside the covers on bright green morocco doublures. Violet suede flyleaves and jewel-toned endpapers complete the production. The edges are painted with blue, green, yellow, and violet acrylic. Housed in a black cloth clamshell box lined with vibrant turquoise suede. Riley studied with Paul Delrue and at the London College of Printing before starting his own bookbinding studio in 1994. He co-founded the bookbinding program at the San Francisco Center for the Book in 1996 and returns there annually to teach and lecture. He was elected a Fellow of Designer Bookbinders in 2008. Extremely fine. (2 5/8 by 2 1/8; 66x52mm).

        Epilogue for Violoncello, Piano and Tape. Titled by the composer "Epilog "Peer Gynt' " at head of first page. Autograph musical manuscript. Unsigned and undated, but Hamburg, February 1993....

      4 pp. (471 measures). Large folio (425 x 230 mm.). Unbound. Notated in both pencil and ink on 32-stave "Star Nr. 37" music manuscript paper in the composer's small, dense hand. An active composing manuscript of the majority of the work, presenting material for the cello at rehearsal number 4 to several measures after rehearsal number 54. With numerous deletions, changes and corrections. Slightly worn. In very good condition overall. Epilogue, one of Schnittke's most expressive chamber works, was written for the famed Russian cellist Mstislav Rostropovich (1927-2007), who gave the work its first performance with Schnittke's wife Irina at Evian on Lake Geneva on May 20, 1993. The work is an arrangement of the final part of Schnittke's ballet Peer Gynt (1986). Schnittke is often considered to be the successor to Shostakovich as Russia's premiere composer. His early music showed the strong influence of Dmitri Shostakovich, but he went on to adopt a very polystylistic approach to composition. As his health worsened, however, he adopted a somewhat bleaker but more accessible style; some Schnittke scholars have argued, in fact, that it is the composer's late works that will ultimately be considered as the most influential of his entire output....

        Bust of Charles Gordon.

      A bust of Charles Gordon cast in bronze, 410mm tall, standing on a recent mahogany-faced stand. This bust was sculpted by Princess Katya Galitzine. Princess Katya is descended from the House of Galitzine, one of the largest and most noble of the Princely houses of Russia, having seniority in the House of Gediminas. The family descends from a Lithuanian Prince George who married the sister of Vasily I. Princess Katya's grandfather Prince Vladimir Galitzine fled Russia and became an antiques dealer in Paris. Her father Prince George was a Major in the Welsh Guards and her mother was the Dior model Jean Dawnay. She is a direct descendant of Catherine the Great through Grand Duke Michael, the son of Paul I and is 612th in line to the English throne. She was one of the first descendants of a Russian émigré to return to Russia when she went to St Petersburg to study sculpture under Mikhail K. Anikushin. Since 1989 she has lived and worked mainly in St Petersburg. The bust is of businessman Charles Gordon. Gordon was a merchant banker and tax specialist who was part of the management of a 'fringe bank' during the 60s and 70s, Cedar Trust. Cedar was an early finance company which became one of the first casualties of the secondary banking crisis of 1973-74. Before all that though he was involved with the arts, marrying the South African ballerina Nadia Nerina in 1955. Despite Nerina's famously prickly relationship with Nureyev over dancing, one thing that never changed was his use of Gordon for his financial advice, which enabled him to become very rich. They first met in 1962 at dinner with Nerina and Erik Bruhn. Nureyev asked him to arrange his tax affairs. Gordon introduced him to Gorlinsky who, with Gordon's aid, set up Nureyev's first tax haven in Luxembourg. Gordon also wrote a memoir of Jack Cotton and Charles Clore, the real estate tycoons who shaped Britain's post-war development. It seems odd that the bust was in the possession of Anton Dolin, but Nerina organised the Anton Dolin International Gala at the Royal Opera House in 1984 so they may well have been friends. Sold with a Gordon's book The Two Tycoons. A Personal Memoir of Charles Clore and Jack Cotton., Hamish Hamilton, 1986. Original printed wrappers, illustrated with black and white photographs; very good. First paperback edition.

Lavishly illustrated with 284 photographs documenting Avedon's career from the 1940's to the 1990's.On his portrait of Marilyn - one of the most famous portraits of the icon ever taken - Avedon explained: "For hours she danced and sang and flirted and did this thing that's--she did Marilyn Monroe. And then there was the inevitable drop. And when the night was over and the white wine was over and the dancing was over, she sat in the corner like a child, with everything gone. I saw her sitting quietly without expression on her face, and I walked towards her but I wouldn't photograph her without her knowledge of it. And as I came with the camera, I saw that she was not saying no" (Richard Avedon Portraits).New York: Random House, (1993). Folio, original white cloth with gray and black lettering, original slipcase, original publisher's shipping box. Just a hint of toning to spine, a touch of rippling to cloth on front cover (much less than usual). An outstanding copy, as fine as we've seen. Fine....
