        Al Aaraaf

      [Sherman Oaks:] Livre d'Art by D'Ambrosio, 1995 One of fifty copies printed letterpress on Lana Royal Classic paper. Signed on the title-page by D'Ambrosio. Trapezoidal shape binding in quarter blue morocco and mirrored panel boards, housed with the original trapezoidal two-part display stand and cover with further mirrored paneling. . Octavo. Printed letterpress in black and purple with woodcut backgrounds in various colors, several pages with embossed margins. A fine copy. Based on the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe's discovery of what later would be termed a supernova—Al Aaraaf (a star that arose upon the night in a brilliant flash, stayed for a short while, and then disappeared), Edgar Allan Poe created this metaphysical communication of fleeting beauty. In it he juggles time and space between reality and fantasy. I had no recourse but to do the same. However, I did start with a basic premise, which is that when one passes a mirror, one can see one's image and the surrounding scene. Once past the mirror, one disappears from the view but the reflection of the surrounding scene continues: a visual presentation of the term 'evanescence.' During the period of the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe (1546-1601), all heavenly bodies were given Arabic names. The structure of the book, therefore, had to evoke that background, along with the spirit of a beautiful thing arising and then passing forever from view. Hence, I created a mirrored polybhedron with unintellible but real script that evokes Arabic writing (but not Arabic) banding its throat…" (Joseph D'Ambrosio in A Memoir of Book Design 1969-2000).

        Call It Sleep

      San Francisco: Arion Press, 1995. Leather Bound. Fine. “Call It Sleep is the most profound novel of Jewish life that I have ever read by an American”& Alfred Kazin --- New York Review of Books& & ROTH, Henry. Call It Sleep. San Francisco: Arion Press, 1995. Limited Edition of 300 printed in 1995 and SIGNED BY ROTH. Quarter green morocco over green cloth boards printed with a brick tenement building design and housed in a matching slipcase. Illustrated with 48 photographs of New York City contemporary to the setting of the novel (1910). Fine Condition. & & Henry Roth (1906-1995) immigrated to New York City in 1907 with his parents from Austria-Hungary. His Yiddish speaking family lived in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn before moving to the Lower East Side in 1910, “a virtual Jewish mini-state,” as Roth later called it. During his college years at the City College of New York he began to write. Call It Sleep, published in 1934, records the six years in the life of a Jewish immigrant boy, David Schearl, in a New York ghetto just prior to World War I. The novel received moderate praise upon publication and then Roth, suffering from tremendous writer’s block did not publish again until 1994. Call It Sleep was rediscovered in the 1960’s and finally recognized for the genre establishing breakthrough that it created. “… no one has ever distilled such poetry and wit from the counterpoint between maimed English and the subtle Yiddish of the immigrant. No one has reproduced so sensitively the terror of family life in the imagination of a child caught between two cultures.” (Leslie A. Fiedler)

        RECOVERY: THE HOSPITAL DRAWINGS OF ALFONSO OSSORIO

      (New York: Center for Book Arts. 1995). 18 3/8" x 18 1/4", hardcover with clamshell. n.p.. First edition limited to 100 signed and numbered copies. Alfonso A. Ossorio (1916-1990) was an abstract expressionist artist who was born in Manila and produced a body of work that remained consistently international in scope. His early fascination with Surrealism gave way to Abstract Expressionism although he continued to be influenced by his native Philippine Catholic folk art as well as the modernist techniques of Informel and assemblage. Instead of completely abandoning one set of principles for another, he would continue to incorporate those features he most favored into his next series of compositions which resulted in complex and multifaceted works. In failing health, he was hospitalized from January 17 to February 8, 1989 and December 3 to 5, 1990. Given some markers and watercolor paper, he began a series of drawings that would become this striking collection of images. The publication was designed by Richard Minsky, with texts by Rose Slivka, Dr. Lewis Thomas and B.H. Friedman. Each print, mounted and matted on Stonehenge paper, was printed on Permalife paper and authenticated in the margin with the seal of the Ossorio Foundation. Letterpress printed at the Center for Book Arts. This volume is housed in a red cloth clamshell box. .

        SENDAK IN PHILADELPHIA ROSENBACH MUSEUM EXHIBIT LITHOGRAPH 18 X 24 SIGNED! [FROM SENDAK'S OWM ARCHIVE]

      For Rosenbach. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1995. First Edition. Print. Art; Sendak; Commercial lithography ; Elephant Folio 23" tall; 1 pages; Maurice Bernard Sendak (born June 10, 1928) is an American writer and illustrator of children's literature. He is best known for his book "Where the Wild Things Are," published in 1963. Sendak gained international acclaim after writing and illustrating "Where the Wild Things Are," a Caldecott Medal-winning picture book about a boy banished to his bedroom without his supper. He deals with his anger by imagining himself king of an island filled with enormous, frightening monsters. Critically acclaimed and controversial, Sendak is one of the first children's writers to deal frankly with the fears and anxieties of childhood. "Where the Wild Things Are" is the first in a trilogy, to be followed by "In the Night Kitchen" (1970) and "Outside over There" (1981) , which, in Sendak's words, are "all variations on the same theme: how children master various feelings--anger, boredom, fear, frustration, jealousy--and manage to come to grips with the realities of their lives." Mr. Sendak's original drawings are constantly in demand by museums, art galleries and collectors everywhere. Although most of his original work is archived at the Rosenbach Museum & Library in Philadelphia, his pictures are represented in many major collections around the world. It understates his importance to simply call him a genius in his field: he has been called "the Picasso of Children's Books", and for more than a half-century his work has been critically praised, admired and emulated. Retrospective exhibitions have been held at the Ashmolean Museum (Oxford, 1975) , the Pierpont Morgan library (New York, 1981) , the Indianapolis Museum of Art (1999) , the Brennan Jewish Heritage Museum in Atlanta (2001, a version of which went on national tour) , the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Books (November 2002) , Brandywine River Museum (2003) , and most recently a remarkable survey of his art at the Jewish Museum (New York, 2005) covering both his book work and sets/costumes for opera and ballet, subsequently extending the show to the Tampa Art Museum in Florida (2006). This is an original full-color poster for the installation of an interactive Sendak exhibition at the Please Touch Museum and a joint retrospective of Maurice Sendak’s art with reference to his influences at the Rosenbach. This uncommon poster illustrates a Colonial-stylized Wild Thing “William Penn” standing atop City Hall flanked by Max and another Wild Thing. The work (Hanrahan C25) is in excellent condition, signed on the "dome" inside illustration. It should be noted that this Sendak poster comes directly from the artist's own archive. Red objects in the picture are positioning magnets. ; Signed by Illustrator .

        TALE OF PETER RABBIT

      1995. 1. POTTER,BEATRIX. THE TALE OF PETER RABBIT. Battledore Books 1995. This is a magnificnet Portfolio of prints from the original blocks with an appreciation signed by Maurice Sendak. The original first printing of Peter Rabbit was produced in 1901 by Potter herself after efforts at finding a publisher failed. She privately printed 250 copies of Peter Rabbit with a color frontispiece and 42 black line illustrations (including the cover). The blocks for this printing were only used one other time (for the second printing of 200 copies). Now, after nearly a century, the publisher has located 34 of these original blocks and has produced this wonderfully elaborate portfolio, LIMITED TO 250 NUMBERED SETS. Each illustration is printed on fine acid free paper and each has its own enclosure printed with the caption. All are housed in a cloth clamshell case with a leather label. The images are remarkably sharp and clean. Featured before the prints is a 20 page ESSAY BY MAURICE SENDAK - an appreciation of Beatrix Potter. Sendak's admiration for Potter is longstanding and having the association between Sendak - the greatest contemporary author/illustrator and children's book, and Potter - author of one of the greatest literary works for children, couldn't be more significant. It has been printed by letterpress and SIGNED BY SENDAK! Included with this portfolio is a wonderful block print by Potter made from the original zinc line-cut. It is previously unpublished and is a charming woodcut entitled "Come dance a jig, to my Granny's Pig. The print is housed in a printed folder and is accompanied by a descriptive commentary by Ann Hobbs (Curator and the V&A). This is altogether a most wonderful item for anyone who appreciates Beatrix Potter.

        TALE OF PETER RABBIT

      1995. 1. POTTER,BEATRIX. THE TALE OF PETER RABBIT. Battledore Books 1995. This is a magnificnet Portfolio of prints from the original blocks with an appreciation signed by Maurice Sendak. The original first printing of Peter Rabbit was produced in 1901 by Potter herself after efforts at finding a publisher failed. She privately printed 250 copies of Peter Rabbit with a color frontispiece and 42 black line illustrations (including the cover). The blocks for this printing were only used one other time (for the second printing of 200 copies). Now, after nearly a century, the publisher has located 34 of these original blocks and has produced this wonderfully elaborate portfolio, LIMITED TO 250 NUMBERED SETS. Each illustration is printed on fine acid free paper and each has its own enclosure printed with the caption. All are housed in a cloth clamshell case with a leather label. The images are remarkably sharp and clean. Featured before the prints is a 20 page ESSAY BY MAURICE SENDAK - an appreciation of Beatrix Potter. Sendak's admiration for Potter is longstanding and having the association between Sendak - the greatest contemporary author/illustrator and children's book, and Potter - author of one of the greatest literary works for children, couldn't be more significant. It has been printed by letterpress and SIGNED BY SENDAK! Included with this portfolio is a wonderful block print by Potter made from the original zinc line-cut. It is previously unpublished and is a charming woodcut entitled "Come dance a jig, to my Granny's Pig. The print is housed in a printed folder and is accompanied by a descriptive commentary by Ann Hobbs (Curator and the V&A). This is altogether a most wonderful item for anyone who appreciates Beatrix Potter.
