        Long Walk To Freedom: The Autobiography of Nelson Mandela.

      Little, Brown and Company, London 1994 - First British edition. Octavo, original black cloth. Inscribed by Nelson Mandela on the title page, "To Dr. Ivan May Compliments and best wishes to a public figure who cares. Nelson Mandela 6.1.95." The recipient was Ivan May, academician and humanitarian, who worked closely with The Nelson Mandela Foundation. He was described by the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund as "a groundbreaking leader in the sphere of giving." Inscription on the half title page, fine in a very good dust jacket. "The Nelson Mandela who emerges from his memoir is considerably more human than the icon of legend Mandela is, on the evidence of his amazing life, neither a messiah nor a moralist nor really a revolutionary but a pragmatist to the core, a shrewd balancer of honor and interests. He is, to use a word unhappily fallen into disrepute, a politician, though one distinguished from lesser practitioners of his calling mainly by his unwavering faith in his ultimate objective, ending white minority rule" (New York Times).

        Cerny trojuhelnik - Podkrusnohori = The Black Triangle - The Foothills of the Ore Mountains = Le triangle noir - La region situee au pied des Montsmetalliferes. Fotografie 1990-1994

      Praha: Vesmir 1994 - OKartondecken mit ausgeschnittenem Dreieck in der Mitte, [78] unpaginierte Seite als Leporello, 23,5 x 30,5 cm, Kartondecken leicht berieben und verbogen, unscheinbare Flecken auf dem Schnitt, sonst ausgezeichneter Zustand. „This book is a photographic report in black and white on the Podkrusnohori, the western tip of the infamous Black Triangle, the foothills of the Ore Mountains. Jutting out into Poland, it is one of Europe's worst devastated territories, but it is also a region that shaped the origin and future development of the Czech state. Coal mining, the first record of which dates back to 1403, has been the region's enormous wealth as well as its curse. The industrial revolution facilitated an unprecedented upsurge of the living standards but at the cost of irreversible changes in nature. 'Man is not an omniscient master of the planet who can get away with doing whatever he likes and whatever may suit him at the moment'. That introductory quotation of Václav Havel is illustrated by Josef Koudelka's photographs of the land dominated by head frames, waste heaps, factory stacks and dried-up lakes."

        Winston Churchill, The Official Biography, full leather binding, complete in 12 volumes

      Easton Press, Norwalk, Connecticut 1994 - The Official Biography of Winston Churchill, begun by Randolph Churchill and completed by Martin Gilbert, is an epic piece of scholarship about a singularly epic life. The eight massive main text volumes were originally published between 1966 and 1988. Even grander than the British first editions is this superlative set of the Official Biography main text volumes produced by The Easton Press in 1994. Easton produced this set as twelve volumes (more manageably sized than the original eight, splitting each of the last four volumes into two volumes). The Easton Press edition claims 24 inches of shelf space, weighs 36 pounds, and fills nearly 8,700 pages. Moreover, it is the finest edition of the Official Biography to date. Each volume is bound in dark red leather, featuring hubbed spines, black title panels, and elaborate decoration with 22 kt. gold accents. The contents are printed on acid-neutral, archival paper, with all page edges gilt, moire fabric endsheets, sewn-in satin ribbon markers, and head and foot bands. The set is profusely illustrated throughout. This particular set is in truly fine condition, with no apparent signs of wear or use. There are no previous ownership marks of any kind. Please note that we will invoice for actual postage costs for this large, heavy set. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A301a-h. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      - Feder in Braun, grau laviert, mit Deckweiß gehöht, über Bleistift, auf Bütten. 23,1:28,5 cm. In Passepartoutumrandung montiert. Vergleichsliteratur: Ausst. Katalog: Neapolitanische Barockzeichnungen in der Graphischen Sammlung des Hessischen Landesmuseums Darmstadt. Bearb. von Jan Simane. Darmstadt, 1994, Nr. 16-19 mit Abbildungen; Galerie Joseph Fach, Frankfurt am Main, 1994, Kat. 61, Nr. 23 (als Francesco de Mura) mit Farbabb. „Campolo ist sowohl als Maler wie auch als Stecher, Architekt und, freilich in sehr wenigen Beispielen, als Zeichner überliefert. Seit seiner ersten Ausbildung in der Privatakademie der Brüder Antonio und Paolo Filocamo in Messina zählte er zu den Vertretern der klassizistisch-akademischen Kunstrichtung, wofür insbesondere auch seine römischen Jahre (1713-1735) ausschlaggebend gewesen waren, die er im engsten Umkreis von Sebastiano Conca (1680-1764) und der Accademia di San Luca verbrachte. Er nahm mehrfach an den „concorsi" der Akademie teil und gewann 1732 den ersten Preis der ersten Klasse. Gegen 1735 kehrte er nach Messina zurück, wo er mehrere öffentliche Aufträge ausführte (u.a. Fresken für die Galleria del Senato, heute zerstört). 1743 fiel er der Pest zum Opfer. Als Zeichner war Campolo bislang so gut wie unbekannt, so daß die vier, hier erstmals publizierten Darmstädter Blätter die ohnehin sehr lückenhafte Überlieferung dieses Künstlers bedeutend verbessern. Allem Anschein nach zeichnete Campolo vorwiegend bildmäßig konzipierte, in sich abgeschlossene Kompositionsentwürfe, die seine Treue gegenüber akademischen Gestaltungsprinzipien deutlich verraten." (op. cit. S. 44).

Fine in a fine dust jacket. The recipient is James Ross, who is Professor of Liver Cell Biology at the University of Edinburgh. Traditionally, the human soul is regarded as a nonphysical concept that can only be examined by psychiatrists and theologists.

        Leaf from a St. Albans Bible, with Fine Historiated Initial. (Text from the Beginning of Paralipomenon).

      Paris: ca. 1330. 11 5/8? x 7 3/4?. Text from the beginning of Paralipomenon. Double column, 46 lines of text, in a very pleasing gothic book hand. Headlines and chapter numbers in blue or gold with elaborate penwork in red or light blue, rubric in red, versal initial in pink or blue with white tracery and enclosing an orange white ivy leaf, the whole on a gold ground, a vertical bar border in the same colors and gold emanating from the versal initials and extending the length of the text. The recto has an extraordinarily fine historiated initial showing Adam and four of his descendants, the group in robes of orange, pink, blue and grey and standing against a tesselated deep blue background dotted with gold (miniature measures 41 x 48mm.), and elaborate bar border extending from the intial, and parallel bar borders in the middle and right margins, the middle bar border terminating at the top in a human figure in a blue tunic with a palm frond in one hand while the other tugs at his curls (perhaps representing Adam marvelling at his progeny), the botton of the left bar border terminating in an ivy leaf branch supporting a plump orange wyvern in a blue cloak. The miniature here is an appropriate reflection of the text, as the rubric near the bottom of the first column signals the beginning of the Old Testament book of Paralipomenon (Chronicles), which commences with a long chain of the names of the descendants of Adam. Of the five male figures, four wear the tall hats associated with Eastern potentate, representing the offspring of Adam, who stands, hatless, at the right. This leaf is from a Bible that was once in the famous English abbey of St. Albans, just north of London, a center of Medieval learning in the 14th century. The manuscript was produced about 1330 in Paris by an illuminator from the circle of Jean Pucelle, the innovative master who painted the Hours of Queen jeanne d?Evreux in the international gothic style. According to James Rorimer, in his introduction to a facimile edition of that manuscript (published for the Cloisters Museum where the Hours now resides), ?it was Pucelle who made available to the North the first completely intelligible French translation of Italian developments? in illumination. Among the features that suggest the origin of the manuscript is the central figure, dressed in cobalt blue, who is posed in the swaying slouch characteristic of the work of Pucelle and his followers. The Bible from which our leaf comes was probably one of the ?two fine Bible? (?duas bonas biblias?) which, according to the abbey?s records, were purchased by Michael of Mentmore, abbot of St. Albans from 1335-49. The work is beautifully done, and the leaf is in a remarkable state of preservation. The last similar leaf that we know of to appear on the market for this manuscript was lot #17 in the 21 June 1994 sale at Sotheby?s, which sold for 6000 pounds.

        Pale Fire

      San Francisco: Arion Press, 1994 Two volumes. First separate edition, limited issue of 200 numbered copies. Publisher's purple cloth, with gold cloth circle laid onto the front board, lettered in gilt; housed in the publisher's gold cloth slipcase. Fine in a fine slipcase. A lovely set. First published in 1962, Pale Fire is a postmodern novel that is presented as the fictional Arthur Shade's poem in four cantos, and the accompanying commentary and index by Charles Kinbote, a fictional mad professor and the novel's unreliable narrator. Together, the lives of the fictional poet and his questionable critic, which are described and elaborated on in the extensive notes and commentary, amount to a satire on modern literary criticism. Indeed, Pale Fire marks an extreme departure from the conventional novel format, prompting George Cloyne to write in his 1962 New York Times review that "whether it be a novel at all is open to question." The second volume presents the poem "Pale Fire" in the same form as the original manuscript described in Nabokov's novel: 4 x 6 inch oblong notecards. In addition to standing testament to the "manuscript" format, the smaller volume serves as a reference for the reader so that he or she can easily refer to the poem while reading the novel.. Limited.. Hard Cover. Fine.
