        Arabian Nights & Days [Signed, Murray Gell-Man's copy]

      New York: Doubleday, 1995. First edition. Hardcover. Fine/near fine. A Fine, Superior, copy of the first American edition, first printing, in a Near Fine dust jacket, SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY NAGUIB MAHFOUZ on the half-title. Originally published in Arabic in 1979, the novel's title was inspired by the classic "A Thousand and One Nights". Naguib Mahfouz "who, through works rich in nuance - now clear-sightedly realistic, now evocatively ambiguous - has formed an Arabian narrative art that applies to all mankind", won the 1988 Nobel Prize in Literature, making him the only Egyptian, and the only author writing in Arabic, ever to win the Prize. In 1994 Mahfouz survived an assassination attempt perpetrated by religious extremists. The attack damaged nerves in his right hand, rendering Mahfouz unable to write for more than a few minutes each day, and seriously affecting his handwriting as seen in his inscription and signature to this book. (The inscription is in Arabic.) Having a wonderful Provenance, this copy belonged to Murray Gell-Man, the American physicist and linguist who himself won the 1969 Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on the theory of elementary particles and for his discovery of the quark, and carries his bookplate on the front free endpaper. Signed copies of this Nobel Prize winner's books are scarce. A Fine, Superior, copy, of this this Nobel Laureate's work from the library of another important Nobel Laureate. SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY NAGUIB MAHFOUZ. RARE.

        Daemonum investigatio peripatetica In qua explicatur locus Hippocratis in Progn. Si quid diuinum in morbis habetur. Florence: Giunta. 1580.

      Exceedingly rare first edition of a quite important work on witchcraft, demonology, Hippocratic medicine, and Aristotelian science by the Italian scientist, botanist, physiologist, and philosopher Andreas Cesalpino [Caesalpinus].  Here Cesalpino set out to reduce evidence of witchcraft and demons to a literal science so that he could then examine and study it in a proper ?Aristotelian? manner in order to ?discover a role for the physician in diagnosing and treating possession? (Clark, ?Hippocratic Medicine and Aristotelian Science in the ?Daemonum investigatio peripatetica? of Andrea Cesalpino,? Bulletin of the History of Medicine, 69: 4 (1995: Winter) p. 527). ?By returning to Hippocratic tradition and seeking to validate it through Aristotelian science, Cesalpino thought he had discovered the proper unifying principles of medicine and natural philosophy which would allow him to view possession as a process of nature? (ibid., 541).As the title of Cesalpino?s work suggests, he also ?examines the problem of demonic possession by explaining a passage of Hippocrates that dealt with the question of whether there is anything divine in diseases.  The treatise appeared at the height of a flurry of theological and scientific inquiry into the nature and role of demons, in which almost all agreed that in one way or another demons are real, physical entities working within the natural scheme of things.  Demons achieve their magical effects, it was generally believed, through an extraordinary knowledge of cause and effects and by their unusual constitution (the fineness of their bodies, their swiftness, etc.).  Several thinkers had raised the question of how this view of demons might affect the functions of the physician and the exorcist, since traditionally the former treated natural diseases, the latter supernatural.  Cesalpino sought to treat the topic more fully and systematically? (Clark, p. 527).CONDITION & DETAILS: 8vo. 8 x 5.75 inches (200 x 143mm). [2], 52 pages, [2].  ILLUSTRATION: Woodcut device on title; woodcut historiated initials and endpieces; large woodcut device on final page (not called for in Adams).BINDING: Bound in full vellum.  Small repair to the vellum on the rear board (see scan).  Very tightly bound.  Exceptional condition.   INTERIOR:  Complete.  Meticulously rendered repairs to upper margins, never impacting text.  Occasional age spotting and toning.  Very clean throughout.  Very good condition.  RARITY: This volume is very scarce and there are no copies of it for sale on the Internet.  A Copac search of European institutional libraries found only three copies (Oxford, Wellcome, & Glasgow).  REFERENCES: Censimento 16 CNCE 10932; Wellcome 1180; Caillet 1889.

        Autograph musical working manuscript draft in short score of the Sinfonisches Vorspiel for large orchestra. The complete work

      4 pp. Notated in pencil on 32-stave "Star Nr. 37" music manuscript paper. Large folio (420 x 230 mm.). Unbound. & & Signed, titled and inscribed to the composer's friend Jürgen Köchel by the composer. Dated May 25, [19]94. Dedicated to the conductor Gerd Albrecht. Scored for triple wind, 4 horns, 3 trombones, tuba, 3 performers on timpani, harp, piano and strings. & & A very active manuscript, with numerous corrections, amendations, directions and indications pertaining to instrumentation in Schnittke's small, dense hand. & & Slightly worn. In very good condition overall. & & Together with a printed edition of the full score published by Sikorski in ca. 1995. . Designed as a tribute to the composer on his 60th birthday, the Sinfonisches Vorspiel was first performed at the Musikhalle in Hamburg on November 6, 1994 with the Philharmonisches Staatsorchester, conducted by Albrecht, the dedicatee; the composer was unfortunately unable to attend due to ill-health. & & Schnittke moved to Hamburg in 1990 to teach composition at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater. He had had his first stroke in 1985; he suffered a second in 1991 and yet another in the year of composition of the present work, 1994, which left him almost completely paralysed. He went on to write only a few more short works thereafter, and also a Ninth Symphony, but its score was almost completely illegible because he was forced by his paralysis to notate it with his left hand.& & 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. & & A dynamic working manuscript of one of Schnittke's last major orchestral compositions.

        JOURNALS MID-FIFTIES 1954 - 1958

      [New York]: HarperCollins, [1995].. Cloth and gilt boards. Soft crease in front free endsheet, else about fine in slightly spine-sunned dust jacket. First edition. Edited by Gordon Ball. Inscribed and signed by Ginsberg on the title-page: "Allen Ginsberg 5/28/95 for Lucien Carr steadfast Affection Decade after Decade." The top portion of the title page is framed by Ginsberg's drawing of a "Tyger!" Laid in is publisher's compliments card, noting the copy was sent on Ginsberg's behalf. Ginsberg met Carr at Columbia University in 1943, and through Carr met Jack Kerouac, Neal Cassady and William Burroughs. In the NYT Obituary for Carr (30 January 2005), Ginsberg's earlier comment about Carr's role in the circle of friendships that gave birth to the literary arm of the Beat generation was quoted: "Lou was the glue." Carr went to work for United Press International in 1946 and was promoted to night news editor in 1956, coincident with the preparations for press of the first public edition of HOWL. Carr was included, with Kerouac, Burroughs and Cassady, in the printed dedication, and when he received his copy, wrote Ginsberg expressing "one small gripe" about his inclusion there, and requesting, out of deference to his privacy, that Ginsberg avoid such mention in future books. At Ginsberg's expense, Carr's name was deleted from the dedication page of the second impression (then already printed), and from subsequent printings. Nonetheless, in 1982, Ginsberg dedicated PLUTONIAN ODE to Carr, "... for friendship all these years...." Carr, of course, figures in the text and index.

      Italy, probably Emilia, ca, 1320. A Very Impressive Historiated Initial, Along with Instructions to the Illuminator. 546 x 375 mm (21 1/2 x 14 3/4"). Single column, six four-line staves of music on each side with text underneath in a very clean, rounded book hand. Attractively matted. Rubrics in red, some notes in blue, first two words of the text in large capitals with yellow wash and elaborated with many fanciful curling flourishes, two large maiblumen initials in red and blue, and WITH A HUGE HISTORIATED "P" SHOWING THE ASCENSION OF CHRIST (the main part of the initial, not counting the marginal flourishes, measuring about 107 mm. wide and 254 mm. long, including the thick descender). An early 2 1/2 x 5 1/2" vellum patch in the lower margin of recto, slight smudge in the cloud supporting Christ and on the face of the angel to the left, some wrinkling to the vellum, especially in bottom margin, the illuminated side with vellum grain lending a grayish cast, very small losses in the gold, but still a very desirable leaf, the memorable initial without any significant damage, the vellum clean and fresh, and the margins very ample. The striking illumination here is in the style of Neri da Rimini (about whom, see Margaret M. Manion and Vera F. Vines, "Medieval and Renaissance Illuminated Manuscripts in Australian Collections," cat. item 8, figs. 32-39 and plate 8). Manion and Vines describe Neri as "a miniaturist active ca. 1300-22 who was a major contributor to the new developments towards gothic naturalism which took place in Italian illumination during the first two decades of the 'trecento,' paralleling and interacting with the innovations in fresco and panel painting associated with the influence of Giotto and painters at Assisi and Rimini." At the same time, it is easy to see the influence of Byzantine models here. Our initial may have been done by an associate of Rimini's, someone who has been identified as the so-called Master of the Fulget, whose work has been distinguished by an inclination for brighter and more varied colors (see R. Gibbs, "Neri da Rimini," 1995, pp. 80-81). The initial here is exceptionally large and deserves the focus of attention it receives. But a less noticeable feature in the upper left margin should not be overlooked. It is there that we can find instructions to the illuminator--a readily apparent "p" to indicate the letter needed and a faintly visible "ascensione d'iesu" to indicate the subject matter. For a discussion of written (and visual) directions to the illuminator, see "Medieval Illuminators and their Methods of Work" by Jonathan J. G. Alexander. One other feature to mention here is the uncommon use of blue neumes in the first two lines of the Responsory.

        A Further Adventure of Sherlock Holmes: The Adventure of the Dorset Street Lodger, by John H. Watson M.D

      London: Number Two Dorset Street. Near Fine. [1995]. First Edition. Hardcover. NOISBN . (no dust jacket, presumably as issued) [extremely light handling wear, spine cloth a bit faded; gift inscription from a "David" on the front pastedown, with a somewhat cryptic inscription, possibly to himself: "The perfect guest. A momento from him be this."]. (B&W illustrations) One of the rarest items of modern-day Sherlockiana, this anonymous "further adventure" was written by Michael Moorcock, by his account, "for some friends who had started a hotel in Dorset Street, as a special give-away for their first guests." Its conceit is that it was written by Dr. Watson in 1895, but at the behest of Sherlock Holmes, who wished the tale only to "be published, if published at all, one hundred years after the date of the last record, when those involved will be long dead and events so remote as no longer to embarrass living descendants," Watson placed the manuscript in the strongbox of his "good friend, Sir Arthur Moorcock of the Tower House, near Dent," there to be held safely until the requisite century had passed. (This is the only place that the name "Moorcock" appears in the book.) It's unknown how many copies of the original edition were printed -- I've seen the figure 200, although that seems to be total speculation -- but in any event there couldn't have been many. (For one thing, some of the original recipients most certainly would have regarded it as little more than a promotional giveaway-cum-throwaway.) .

        Meta Mor for the Moon. Illustrated by Susan Weil

      New York: Vincent FitzGerald & Company. 1995. One of 25 copies each signed by the artist, on various papers. Page size: 8 x 8 inches. Bound by Zahra Partovi: blue silk in Coptic-style binding with two paintings by the artist on the inside flyleaves, housed in matching blue silk box by Book Lab. Illustrated with etchings and paintings by Susan Weil and Vincent FitzGerald, the work is printed on mylar, apta royal and Richard de Bas papers. The book is 72 pages with text identifying various geographical locations of the moon, i.e. Sea of Tranquility etc. The moon -- and the book -- is divided into quadrants; the title is a pun, referring to Joyce. Each quadrant of the moon is introduced by subtitles on mylar. Weil has executed two blueprints for this book -- the first she has done since those with Robert Rauschenberg some years ago. The letterpress is by Kelly/Winterton Press. The screenprints are by Color Girls. Susan Weil&#39;s continuing fascination with, and exploration of, the works of James Joyce has produced another masterpiece. <br>See an <A HREF= >Image.</A><br>

        Arabian Nights & Days [Signed, Murray Gell-Man&#39;s copy]

      New York: Doubleday, 1995. First edition. Hardcover. Fine/near fine. A Fine, Superior, copy of the first American edition, first printing, in a Near Fine dust jacket, SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY NAGUIB MAHFOUZ on the half-title. Originally published in Arabic in 1979, the novel&#39;s title was inspired by the classic "A Thousand and One Nights". Naguib Mahfouz "who, through works rich in nuance - now clear-sightedly realistic, now evocatively ambiguous - has formed an Arabian narrative art that applies to all mankind", won the 1988 Nobel Prize in Literature, making him the only Egyptian, and the only author writing in Arabic, ever to win the Prize. In 1994 Mahfouz survived an assassination attempt perpetrated by religious extremists. The attack damaged nerves in his right hand, rendering Mahfouz unable to write for more than a few minutes each day, and seriously affecting his handwriting as seen in his inscription and signature to this book. (The inscription is in Arabic.) Having a wonderful Provenance, this copy belonged to Murray Gell-Man, the American physicist and linguist who himself won the 1969 Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on the theory of elementary particles and for his discovery of the quark, and carries his bookplate on the front free endpaper. Signed copies of this Nobel Prize winner&#39;s books are scarce. A Fine, Superior, copy, of this this Nobel Laureate&#39;s work from the library of another important Nobel Laureate. SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY NAGUIB MAHFOUZ. RARE.

      (GURSKY, ANDREAS) (DUBUISSON, JEAN). Gursky, Andreas, Hans Irrek & Ursula Trubenbach. ANDREAS GURSKY: MONTPARNASSE. Frankfurt am Main & Stuttgart, GERMANY: Portikus & Oktagon Verlag, 1995. First Edition. Oblong Folio. Wrappers in Printed Box. Photography Monograph. Near Fine/No Jacket - As Issued. np (40 + 32 + 6pp), 20 color and 10 b&w illustrations. Text in German. Designed by Kuhle und Mozer. Published in conjunction with a 1995 exhibition at Portikus Frankfurt am Main, this elegant, ambitiously designed, oversized publication is devoted to Andreas Gursky&#39;s monumental photograph of architect Jean Dubuisson&#39;s quarter-mile long Montparnasse housing block. A single 10 1/4 x 18 3/4" color reproduction on heavy stock is laid into a silver folder that bears the names of the more than seven hundred and fifty families inhabiting the massive housing project. This is accompanied by two booklets in silver wrappers: "Texte" - which contains an essay by Hans Irrek as well as interviews with Dubuisson and three Montparnasse dwellers, and "Images" - which reproduces grainy full page voyeuristic blown-up details of interiors of the individual apartments. These three printed components are housed in a shallow printed cardboard box. The interior contents are all in Near Fine condition with no notable flaws. The matte black paper-covered lower portion of the box along with the silver lid show some light overall wear, scuffs and minor abrasions, but no splits or tears to the corners as one typically sees. Due to its silver paper and fragile construction "Montparnasse" (cited on page 275 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger&#39;s "The Photobook: A History Volume II") rarely turns up in beautiful condition, but this is truly a most handsome example of this uncommon item that looks far nicer in hand than it describes.
