        The Danakil Diary. Journeys through Abyssinia, 1930-34.

      London: Caledonian International Book Manufacturing Ltd for HarperCollins, 1996. 8vo (234 x 151mm). Original maroon boards, spine titled in gilt, dustwrapper, retaining price; pp. [2 (blank l.)], [i]-xvii, [1 (blank)], [2 (fly-title, facsimile on verso)], 1-207, [1 (blank)], [2 (part-title to index, verso blank)], 209-214, [2 (blank l.)]; 2 colour-printed maps after Thesiger, 12 leaves of monochrome illustrations after photographs by Thesiger, one full-page facsimile and illustrations in the text; dustwrapper very slightly rubbed at edges, very light marginal toning as usual, otherwise a fine copy; autograph presentation inscription on title 'For Bart with bery good wishes / Wilfred Thesiger'). First edition. 'In 1930 Wilfred Thesiger attended the coronation of HIM Haile Selassie in Addis Ababa [as honorary attaché to the Duke of Gloucester], at the Emperor's personal invitation [in consequence of his own and his father's friendships with the Emperor]. Afterwards he spent a month hunting alone in the hostile Danakil desert of Abyssinia (now Ethiopia), a thrilling experience which led three years later to his successful exploration of the Awash River. Today he still regards this expedition as the most dangerous he ever undertook. Aged only 23, Thesiger became the first European to travel through the fabled Sultanate of Aussa, a forbidding land where two Italian expeditions and an Egyptian army had previously been wiped out by Danakil tribesman. Thesiger's remarkable journey solved one of Africa's last remaining geographical mysteries [...] A vivid, compelling narrative, The Danakil Diary records how the young Thesiger surmounted overwhelming obstacles and survived the constant threat of death and mutilation by the Danakil, warriors whose tribal status depended on the number of men they had killed and castrated' (dustwrapper blurb). In the course of this expedition, Thesiger collected and preserved some 872 birds, including 192 species and three new subspecies, from the Danakil region, publishing his findings with M. Meynell as 'On a Collection of Birds from Danakil, Abyssinia' in The Ibis series 13, vol. V, no. 4. This copy is from the library of the actress and writer Pauline, Lady Rumbold, who was herself the daughter of the actress Hermione Baddely and the aesthete and writer Stephen Tennant; following marriages to the anthropologist Julian Pitt-Rivers and Euan Graham, Principal Clerk of Private Bills in the House of Lords, she married the retired diplomat Sir Anthony Rumbold, 10th Bt in 1974: 'She used to say, of her three husbands, that she had married first a head, then a body, then a head with a body' (obituary, The Daily Telegraph, 17 December 2008). Rumbold (1911-1983) had known Thesiger at Eton and was his contemporary at Magdalen College Oxford, before going on to enjoy a distinguished career in the Diplomatic Service. In 1984, Rumbold had 'tried very hard to get Wilfred a knighthood' (A. Maitland Wilfred Thesiger: the Life of the Great Explorer (London: 2006), p. 457), but was unsuccessful in his attempt (Thesiger would only be knighted -- unjustifiably tardily in the opinion of many -- in 1995). Following Rumbold's death in 1983 and Thesiger's return to Britain in 1994, he would sometimes stay with the widowed Pauline, and this copy was presumably inscribed to her shortly after its publication in 1996. Provenance: The presentee Malcolm Bart [or Bent?] then passed this book on to a friend with the inscription on the title 'Wilred has given me a second copuy I can't think of a more suitable person to have the first than you. Malcolm Bart/Bent'. P.N. Grover, Bibliography of Works by Sir Wilfred Thesiger, p. 272.

        Ports of Entry: William S. Burroughs and the Arts, Inscribed & Signed Association Copy with: Ephemera; & with: an additional copy.

      New York, NY: Thames and Hudson, 1996. First Printing. Softcover; Folded Sheet. Fine. "I am as much surprised as the observer by anything I have created." (from WSB's afterword) A large-format catalog published in conjunction with the exhibit of the same name held at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art during July 18- October 6, 1996. A comprehensive survey filled with fine reproductions of collages, photos, paintings, objects & other artworks created by William S. Burroughs over many years; along with collaborative & WSB-inspired works with & by other artists, in particular Brion Gysin, his close friend & a key influence. Indeed, it was after Gysin's death in 1986 that WSB pursued the visual arts in earnest, parallel with his Beat-&-Beyond writings during the final decade of his life. He also wrote extensively on descriptions & ideas about art, as in his afterword here. With preface & commentary by Robert A. Sobieszek, Curator of Photography at LACMA. See Schottlaender, B23(A), pg. 27; Shoaf, Section II, No. 356, pg. 111. We offer a very special copy of this classic, beautiful production: It is warmly inscribed & signed by WSB on the title page: "For Jim and Sue with friendship/ over many years/ Love/ (signed) William S. Burroughs/ November 4, 1996." "Jim" is Jim McCrary, a poet & educator who has long resided in Lawrence, Kansas, where he was a friend & associate of WSB during his later years; a member of Burroughs Communications led by James Grauerholz. "Sue" is artist Sue Ashline, McCrary's wife. Also, Sobieszek has inscribed & signed on the short-title (front endpaper) page: "To Jim & Sue./ with fondest/ love and/ admiration/ and thanks/ (signed) Robert Sobieszek/ All Souls Day (on or about the same date as WSB's inscription)." It is worth noting that in the Acknowledgements, Sobieszek writes: "Thanks are due to the staff and associates of William Burroughs Communications for their untiring labors and unceasing good humor, most especially Jim McCrary for guiding me through the vast materials..." Between pages 50-51 is to be found a folded pamphlet for a symposium that was held at the University of Kansas' Spencer Museum of Art in Lawrence during November 2, 1996, regarding the exhibit (which had recently ended in LA & moved to the Spencer Museum's Kress Gallery during October 26, 1996 through January 5, 1997), featuring Sobieszek, Allen Ginsberg, Kathy Acker, George Condo & Richard Hell. Also, our McCrary acquisitions include a folded card invitation to a reception during the evening of the above-referred symposium, & we have included it here as relevant ephemera. Without question, WSB & McCrary collectively attended all of these events. In addition, we have included an additional, uninscribed first printing of the catalog as a reading copy for the collector. A most significant WSB artifact-bundle, rich with association & provenance- & the hand of WSB himself. Inscribed association copy in fine condition with only mild rubbing & scratching to front, back covers & spine; very minor wear & bumps at edges & corners of same; a few short, faint creases at upper right corner of front cover, surface of same & back cover; slight soiling & spotting at edges of text block esp. lower edge. Interior very fine with only tiny bumps at corners of a few page leaves; a bit of smudging at WSB's signature & date; a tiny spot of same at second letter of Sobieszek signature's last name. Symposium pamphlet in very fine condition with only a short, faint crease across outer & inner lower corners of first two panels; small, light stain at upper right corner of front panel. Invitation card in fine condition, folded in half with attendant horizontal crease through middle; small, faint crease at & near upper right corner of front panel extending to & near upper left corner of rear panel; several much smaller creases near upper left corner of front panel; sparse & very light scratching & spotting of all four outer & inner panels. Second copy of catalog in fine condition with only mild rubbing & scratching to front, back covers & spine; very mild wear & bumps at edges & corners of same; very mild spotting to edges of text block; mild soiling to lower edge of same. Interior very fine with only short wave-creases near upper corners of first 25 or so page leaves; shorter wave-creases across upper corners of last 20 or so of same. Inscribed & Signed to Jim McCrary by William S. Burroughs & exhibit curator Robert A. Sobieszek, virtually contemporary with exhibit & related symposium.

        Gary Schneider: "john In Sixteen Parts": Limited-edition Print

      New York City, NY: Gary Schneider Studios(1996). First Edition / First Printing. As New in No Dust Jacket, As Issued. 1 pages. Rare Gary Schneider collectible art. A pristine Limited-Edition print of one of the most iconic images from his celebrated sequence, "John In Sixteen Parts", titled, numbered, dated, and signed by Gary Schneider. There is no ISBN. The print is now rare. A brilliant production by Gary Schneider: Regular-sized print format. Measures 8 X 10 inches. In the artist's protective plastic sleeve. Eminently suitable for framing. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Gary Schneider's "John In Sixteen Parts, Part #3". The extreme close-up of the model John Erdman's right eye. From the complete sequence of images that show his various body parts (of his face), lovingly, probingly, and "scientifically" photographed by Gary Schneider (Erdman is the artist/photographer's longtime companion). Both the concept and its realization are brilliant, resulting in imagery that is strikingly original, "Conceptual" photography that is imagined rather than conceived, the work of an artist/photographer who has somehow given us a rare glimpse into the human soul, in all its beauty, pain, and "materiality", through photographs of the human body. The complete sequence was published as the eponymous Artist Book in 1997. An absolute "must-have" collectible, not just memorabilia, item/artwork for Gary Schneider collectors. This Limited-Edition print is one of 20 copies, indicated/numbered as such on recto, and it is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully titled, dated, and signed in pencil by the artist/photographer: "John In Sixteen Parts 1996 Part #3 4/20 Gary Schneider". This title is a great photographic print. As far as we know, this is the only copy available online, is in the artist's protective plastic sleeve, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: Gary Schneider prints command thousands of dollars from his galleries, at art fairs, and at auction. His work is slowly but surely destined for canonical recognition. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed print thus. 1 original photographic print. One of the most brilliant artist/photographers of our time. A flawless collectible print.

        Submarine Dream. Lithographs and Letters. Edited by Brian Webb with an Introduction by Peyton Skipwith.

      First edition. An edition of 375 copies. This is 43/75 copies signed by Professor Eileen Hogan of Camberwell College of Arts with a folder of ten prints. Dark green leather spine. Boards reproducing a marbled paper designed by Tirzah Ravilious during the 1930s which is again used on the linen-covered portfolio and the menu which is loosely inserted. Stochastic screening was used for the lithographed reproductions. A fine copy.Eric Ravilious was appointed a War Artist in February 1940. In August that year he moved to HMS Dolphin, the submarine base in Gosport, Hampshire. He produced two series of five lithographs, the first set predominantly blue/yellow and the second blue/brown. No publisher in wartime was prepared to print them in book form and they were sold as extremely limited prints. This is the first publication as a book and this copy has the additional advantage of the full set of prints as individual duplicates. The menu included is for the Double Crown Club Dinner 342 on Tuesday 14th October 1997 at The Arts Club in Dover Street, London at which Brian Webb spoke about the publication of the book. Scarce.

        Brockhaus. Die Enzyklopädie in 24 Bänden. Pflichtfortsetzung Band 1-24 (Gebundene Ausgabe) Brockhaus. Die Enzyklopädie in 24 Bänden. Pflichtfortsetzung Band 1-24 [Gebundene Ausgabe] von Wissenmedia Brockhaus Enzyklopädie, 20., neubearb. Aufl., 24 Bde. Zus. ca. 260000 Stichwörter auf 17000 S., über 35000 Abb., Ktn u. Tab., durchg. farb.

      wissenmedia, 1996. Seit Generationen steht der Name Brockhaus für akribisch zusammengetragenes, sorgfältig aufbereitetes Wissen, das selbstverständlich immer auf dem neuesten Stand ist. Die 20. Auflage berücksichtigt deshalb die aktuellen Entwicklungen, die sich seit 1986 in allen Lebensbereichen vollzogen haben. Dabei wurden aber nicht nur einzelne Stichwörter ergänzt, sondern auch viele neue aufgenommen. Das gilt natürlich auch für die im Frühjahr 1998 erscheinenden Bände 14 bis 18 mit so interessanten Stichwörtern wie Molekulardesign, nichteheliche Kinder oder Postreform. Dazu kommen viele neu aufgenommene oder völlig überarbeitete Länderartikel, wie zum Beispiel über Russland oder Makedonien, die nun eigenständige Staaten sind und einschneidende Veränderungen durchgemacht haben. Eine Besonderheit der 'Brockhaus Enzyklopädie' sind die Schlüsselbegriffe. Über alle 24 Bände verteilt findet man in diesen Artikeln umfassende Darstellungen zu etwa 200 zentralen Themen unserer Zeit.Schlüsselbegriffe der neuen Bände sind zum Beispiel Migration, multinationale Unternehmen, öffentliche Schulden oder die olympische Idee. Zur besseren Anschaulichkeit tragen die über 35 000 durchgehenden farbigen Abbildungen bei. Eine besonders gut lesbare Schrift, optische Hervorhebungen und eine übersichtliche Gliederung machen die 'Brockhaus Enzyklopädie' äußerst benutzerfreundlich. Es wird nicht nicht nur auf aktuelle Informationen Wert gelegt, sondern auch auf die Verarbeitung und das Material. Kopfgoldschnitt und säurebeständiges Papier leisten negativen Umwelteinflüssen Widerstand. Der Einband aus Leder und Buckramleinen sowie die 23-karätige Goldprägung der Lederrückenschilder schaffen den passenden Rahmen für das Wissen der Welt.
