        A Book of Posters printed at Whittington

      Whittington Press, Risbury, Herefordshire 1996 - 63x44cm, 6pp (plus unpaginated posters and commentaries). With twenty-five posters printed letterpress by The Whittington Press (10 of which are original impressions) plus an introduction and commentary on each poster by John Randle. Copy 71 of 50 (125), quarter-bound in buckram over green paper-covered boards with a wood-engraved device to the front board, in a green paper-covered slipcase with brown cloth edges and a leather label bearing a gilt title to the spine. The Whittington Press is well known for a strong tradition of letterpress broadsides and posters in addition to the rest of its prodigious output. This truly monumental production, here in the 'Edition B' variant, presents a generous sample of these in book form. Many of the posters include wood engravings, etc, by artists associated with Whittington such as Hellmuth Weissenborn, Miriam Macgregor, Richard Kennedy, Howard Phipps . The full details of the variants are: fifty 'Edition A' specials with 35 posters tipped-in and an additional portfolio containing 'about 10' separate posters, fifty 'Edition B' specials with 25 posters (as here), and twenty-five 'Edition C' copies with 6 posters. Each limitation is bound identically in quarter buckram, and the copies are numbered consecutively across the three limitations. Together with Whittington's second volume of posters, published in 2013, this is the largest book published by the press. Fine, in a Near Fine (a couple of unobtrusive marks to the back board) slipcase. The endpapers of this book often show old creases due to accidentally folding back under their own weight when closing, but this copy is completely free of this problem. This is an exceptionally large and heavy book (5.5kg) and standard shipping rates do not apply - please contact us to discuss shipping options including the possibility of personal collection/delivery in the UK.

        Pink Floyd - Echoes

      Pink Floyd schrieb mit ihren innovativen wie avantgardistischen Songs Musikgeschichte. Dieses reich bebilderte Buch des Pink-Floyd- und Popmusik-Experten Cliff Jones ist ein äußerst seltenes Sammlerstück, da es kurz nach Erscheinen wegen einer Millionenklage der Band eingestampft werden musste. Es wurde im Jahr 1996 vom Englischen ins Deutsche übersetzt. Das vorliegende, völlig neue Exemplar stammt direkt aus den Bibliotheksbeständen des damaligen Lektors, der das Werk 1996 bearbeitete und insgesamt 3 Belegexemplare des Erstdrucks vorab erhielt. Diese deutsche Version gelangte nie in den offiziellen Buchhandel, nur wenige Exemplare wurden als Vorbestellungen ausgeliefert. Daher ist dieses Exemplar eine absolute Rarität!

        Pendle Witches

      London: Enitharmon Press, printed at the Rampant Lions Press, 1996. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Rego, Paula. De luxe copy with signed, separate etching, quarto size, [49] pp., signed by author and artist. Philip Blake Morrison (b. 1950), British poet and author, won his greatest success with the publication of his memoirs, "And When Did You Last See Your Father?", for which he was awarded the J. R. Ackerley Prize for Autobiography. This publication is a beautifully produced version of Blake Morrison's poems inspired by the horrific Pendle witch trials of 1612, with twelve facsimiles of Paula Rego etchings which had been published in a portfolio of the same name by Marlborough Graphics earlier that year. Both the poems and the etchings deal with gender or sexuality in some way, which was often the basis for the fear some people had of witches. This de luxe edition has an original etching entitled "Him," signed by Paula Rego, and is warmly inscribed by her on the front free endpaper to the original (immediate prior) owner. ***DESCRIPTION: Original full yellow cloth covered boards with monochrome plate inlaid to the upper board, printed title label inlaid to backstrip, fore- and bottom edges uncut, twelve tipped-in monochrome illustrations; hand-set Palatino type, Arches velin paper, quarto size (12.75" by 10"), pagination: [1-4] 5-47 [1 blank] [1 colophon]; limited edition with this copy being marked "o/s" (out of series) by the artist on the colophon page, it is one of the de luxe versions with the separate etching and bound by The Fine Bindery (total edition comprised of a deluxe edition of 75 numbered copies plus 15 hors commerce copies, along with a regular edition of 1000 copies, of which the first hundred copies are numbered); this example is signed by both the author and artist on the colophon, with an additional inscription from the artist in pencil to the front free endpaper. Accompanied by the separate etching signed by the artist, tissue-guarded, in a heavy paper wallet; both the book and etching are housed in a yellow cloth slipcase with inlaid title label at upper board. ***CONDITION: A fine copy; crisp, clean, like new; the sole prior owner marking being the inscription by the artist. The separate etching also fine, absolutely clean and without wear; the slipcase is fine overall, strong and stury, the yellow cloth clean and unrubbed; a minor, stray mark on the paper label, else fine. ***CITATION: Rosenthal, "Paula Rego the Complete Graphic Work", p. 110. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard shipping charge does not always cover costs; please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind book we sell. Please contact us with any questions you may have, we are here to help.

        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.

The book has been letterpress printed on two colors of confetti paper using a Vandercook #14 letterpress and handmade "paper" printing plates and a multitude of printing ink. Laid into book is a letter signed by D'Ambrosio to two of D'Ambrosio's most ardent admirers and good friends asking for a critique as to the pricing of the new book (1996). Also enclosed is a full page handwritten by the author, which deals with a " very successful" slide show in California and comments as to the time it takes to put together this book and the " non-profit" nature of the books as art business. There is also some personal text as to his health and tests he will be taking. Also enclosed is an announcement from the Studio D'Ambrosio introducing this book. This book is astonishing and a joy for any serious collector, and affiliated items is virtually unread. I have read it as has the original owners and is mint in mint clam shell box.

        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.
