        Far Out Safari - Limited Edition Print (Signed)

      1994. Print. New. Lithograph print by Carl Barks on Acid-free Paper. SIGNED NUMBERED PRINT. Size: 10" x 8" (254mm x 203mm). Uncle Scrooge McDuck and his nephews Donald Duck with the scintillating trio of little ducks, Huey, Dewey and Louie, are on their way to Africa so the patriarch of the clan can bid on -- and hopefully buy -- the famous Kaffir de Gaffir gold mine. Little does Scrooge know, however, that his arch rival, Flintheart Glomgold, also has eyes to own the mine and is determined to keep Scrooge from getting it! After their private plane is shot down, the ducks must rely on the boys' copy of the Junior Woodchucks Guide Book instruction section on how to make animal-taming whistles so they can "hitch rides" on passing fauna and fowl: lions, hippopotamuses, crocodiles, cape buffaloes, warthogs, ostriches, elephants, giraffes, zebras, gemsboks, impalas, jackals and, yes, even rhinoceroses, to help convey them to their destination. Far Out Safari was taken from a simple cover design Carl Barks drew for Uncle Scrooge #61, published in January 1966, illustrating the lead story inside, So Far and No Safari. Far Out Safari was printed by the Black Box of Chicago, image size 7 1/2x10 on 11x13 Opalesque Keramique, a paper constructed of 100% cotton fibre for strength and longevity, guaranteed not to fade under normal and stable storage conditions for hundreds of years.

      - Borba de Moraes, p. 826 ("This French edition is much sought after"); Landwehr & V.d. Krogt, VOC 362; Leclerc 1994; Rodrigues 2288; Sabin 89451; Tiele, Bibl. 1030; Tiele, Mém. 70; Warnsinck, p. 178; not in Rahir; Willems. First and only edition of the French translation of one of the bestsellers of illustrated 17th-century travel literature, describing one of the most famous early voyages around the world by Joris van Spilbergen (1568-1620), a veteran Dutch East Indies naval officer-turned-pirate, undertaken from 1614 to 1618. A short survey of another of the most important early voyages around the world, by Schouten and Le Maire in the years 1615 to 1617, is added at the end (pp. 117-172) with drop-title "Navigationes Australes". It reports Le Maire's proof that Tierra del Fuego is an island and his discovery of what is still called the Strait of Le Maire, an alternative route to the Pacific. The work is also of interest for the 17th-century Dutch presence in Brazil (see below). Rich in ethnographic detail, the numerous illustrations in the Miroir include oversized penguins, llamas and an Andean condor with a nine-foot wing span. Naval battles, beleaguered Spanish settlements, and newly discovered islands are also depicted in detail, making the work a valuable compendium of adventure on the high seas during the Age of Discovery. The maps and views -- printed from the plates of the first edition -- depicting the new discoveries are of prime interest, especially the map of the Strait of Magellan (here lightly coloured), the map of the Strait of Manilles and the large map of the Malayan archipelago with an inset-map of the Strait of Boeton. In 1614 the VOC commissioned Spilbergen to sail to the Moluccas with nearly 700 men. Despite the commercial nature of his expedition, Spilbergen's six vessels were heavily armed, anticipating encounters with silver-laden Spanish vessels. Spilbergen spent two years calling at various Spanish and Portuguese ports along both coasts of South America, failing to capture any great amounts of silver or silk from Manila, but burning several settlements and emerging triumphant from a naval skirmish just south of Lima.By contrast, Le Maire's less mercenary expedition resulted in important discoveries; his exploration of Tierra del Fuego and the Tuamotou Archipelago called into doubt the existence of a massive southern continent, providing a catalyst for Tasman's discovery of New Zealand and Australia.The two expeditions crossed paths in the Dutch East Indies in 1616. This work is remarkable as an early document on Dutch navigation to the Brazilian coasts. Its great value lies in Spilbergen's detailed account of the stay in the Ilha Grande, from October 1614 to January 1615, and in São Vicente in 1615. Plate 2, depicting the disordered landing of Dutch vessels in São Vicente, clearly documents the way of life of the indigenous peoples under Portuguese occupancy. Colonial religious structures appear alongside typical Native American hammocks, and traditional Brazilian costumes and methods of animal husbandry are evident. This illustration with its explanatory text is particularly important, as the 17th-century ethnographic documents about the future São Paulo are very rare.This edition includes three important additions to the text of the journal: (1) a description of the government of Peru and Chile by the Spanish Pedro de Madriga (pp. 63-74), (2) an account on the Molluccas by Apolonus Schot from Middelburg (pp. 96-107), and a description of the fortresses, artillery, ships, etc. in the service of the Dutch East India Company in July 1616 (pp. 107-115).Niclaes Geelkerck in Leiden published the first editions of the Miroir in Dutch as Oost en West-Indische spiegel der nieuwe navigatien . and in a (somewhat abridged) Latin translation (both 1619), with identical plates. Johannes Janssonius in Amsterdam published a second Dutch edition and the present French edition (both 1621), using the same 25 plates.

        IN SOCCER WONDERLAND: A FAN'S VISION OF FOOTBALL (WITH A FAN'S SOUVENIR FOOTBALL STAMP ALBUM)

      London, England: Booth-Clibborn Editions, 1994. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/No Dust Jacket, As Issued.. London, England: Booth-Clibborn Editions, 1994. Hardcover. Fine/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. 168 pages. Collection of photographs with accompanying text on subject. One of the greatest photography books of the 20th century. The First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. It comes with a copy of the "In Soccer Wonderland" Souvenir Football Stamp Album, which is now very rare. A brilliant production by Julian Germain and Why Not Associates: Oversize-volume format. Glossy pictorial hard boards with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs and text by Julian Germain. Germain&#39;s text is beautifully and movingly written, an autobiography of a fan&#39;s obsession that serves as a prism of his life. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Hong Kong to the very highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. The book was originally shown at the exhibition of the same name held at The Photographer&#39;s Gallery London in 1992. Presents one of the most unusual sports photography books ever published, with a design that flawlessly captures the vibrancy, dynamism, and sheer excitement of the game on the page through the juxtaposition of Julian Germain&#39;s contemporary photographs and text with graphics, layout, doublespreads, vintage photographs, souvenirs, trading cards, head dolls, trophies, and other soccer memorabilia. The British, European, and Latin-American fanaticism about soccer, which has made it the world&#39;s greatest sport, is the subject of the book, and it is truly wonderful indeed (the title is clearly an inverted homage to "Alice&#39;s Adventures in Wonderland") . "Germain is a pioneer of the contemporary photo-collage book, whereby different types and generations of the photograph are combined to make a pluralist genre of photobook" (Martin Parr and Gerry Badger) . Parr and Badger are idiosyncratically and dogmatically opinionated about their own passion for photography books. But their inclusion of "In Soccer Wonderland" is a sure goal. Julian Germain&#39;s images leap off the page with such infectious spontaneity, and his book should delight and dazzle not just soccer fans but all lovers of great photography books. A "must-have" title for Julian Germain collectors. <b><i> This is an Import tit leand is now very highly collectible. It comes with a copy of the Stamp Souvenir Album, which is now virtually impossible to find and rare. As far as we know, this is the only set available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. All other copies available online have major flaws. A rare set thus. </b></i> Lavishly illustrated with black-and-white and color plates. All 24 stamps are encased in the original glassine sheet. "In Soccer Wonderland" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the finest living British photographers. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO NEIL LEIFER TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1873968302.
