        RARITIES OF NUMISMATA TYPOGRAPHICA, FOUR EXAMPLES OF EARLY DUTCH PRINTER'S BOOKBINDERS' & BOOKSELLERS' GUILD MEDALS, CAST IN STERLING SILVER FROM ORIGINAL SPECIMENS

      Newtown: Bird & Bull Press, 1996. cloth, cloth spine label. Bird & Bull Press. 8vo. cloth, cloth spine label. Accompanied by a separate folder with die-cut holes in which is loosely inserted the four facsimile medals in silver. All enclosed in a slipcase. Descriptions by William Blades. Introduction by Henry Morris. Limited to only 120 numbered copies (Berger A58). Printed from Dante types composed by Dan Carr and Julia Ferrari at Golgonooza Letter Foundry. During the 17th and 18th century the Dutch printing guilds, which included booksellers, bookbinders, publishers and artists, issued medals to their journeyman members, with the name or number of the member engraved thereon. The medal identified the holder as a qualified guild member, a sort of "union card." All "one-of-a-kind," they are highly prized and extremely difficult to find today. Few Americans have ever seen one. Henry Morris was able to identify the formerly anonymous "No.17" on one of the medals, thus adding considerable interest to what is already a fascinating subject. Due to the high cost of silver and casting, only 120 copies of this book with the medals were issued. Becoming one of the scarcest of the Bird & Bull books. Small private booklabel in corner of front pastedown of book and on inside cover of folder containing medals.

        MEIN KAMPF - Rare Pristine Copy of The Deluxe Clamshell Box Edition With Original Color Print

      Santa Fe, NM: Twin Palms Publishers, 1996 - 1st Printing. Signed. 87 pages. Published in 1996. Landmark collection of color photographs on subject. One of the greatest photography books of the 20th century. Deluxe Clamshell Box Edition of 100 numbered and signed copies. An austerely elegant production by David Levinthal and Jack Woody: Oversize-volume format. Black cloth boards with photographic reproduction pasted on the front cover and red titles embossed on the spine, as issued. Photographs by David Levinthal. Essays by Roger Rosenblatt, Garry Trudeau, and James E. Young. This is Levinthal's second collaboration with Trudeau, the creator of "Doonesbury". 8 X 10 inch Cibachrome print matted and laid into the box. Handmade black cloth clamshell box. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Japan to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents in the ultimate Deluxe-Edition format "Mein Kampf", David Levinthal's sequel/companion volume to "Hitler Moves East" (1977). The latter consisted of black-and-white photographs; the present collection is entirely in color. Like his other collections built around compelling themes, "Mein Kampf", whose title is adopted from Adolf Hitler's autobiography/political manifesto, tells an unforgettable photo-narrative about a Past that continues to haunt the Present. It is not possible to imagine a more demonic figure than Hitler and a more evil ideology than Nazism. What makes "Mein Kampf" permanently disturbing is Levinthal's point that Hitler may be long dead but his legacy is very much alive, very much with us. Photographing his toy artifacts is an artistic strategy that is now identified with the artist. Levinthal is a collector twice over: First, of vintage toys, which are valuable in and of themselves (Levinthal's photographs would not have the same power if the toys were new or merely replicas, therefore not "collectible"); second, of images by their photographer/collector, who deploys a highly developed technique that enables him to make the toys come, uncannily, to life. As such, Levinthal's body of work is ultimately about aesthetics versus ethics, the paradox of the aesthetically pleasing photograph (which seduces) despite its ethically horrific subject (which repels). The photographs are beautiful, which is not the same thing as saying they glorify their subject. They do not. Instead, their beauty paradoxically makes us more aware of the simple fact that evil persists. An absolute "must-have" title for David Levinthal collectors. This copy is one of the Deluxe Clamshell Box Edition, and it is very prominently and beautifully numbered and signed in black ink-pen on the Back Limitation Page by David Levinthal. Laid-in is an 8 X 10 inch Cibachrome print, also very prominently and beautifully numbered, dated, and signed in black ink-pen on verso by the artist/photographer: "David Levinthal 1996 20/100". This title is now highly collectible. This is one of very few copies of the Deluxe Clamshell Box Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 59 color plates, 1 original color print. One of the greatest living photographers. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER DAVID LEVINTHAL TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0944092446. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        DAMIEN HIRST: I WANT TO SPEND THE REST OF MY LIFE, EVERYWHERE, WITH EVERYONE, ONE TO ONE, ALWAYS, FOREVER, NOW - FIRST EDITION WITH A SIGNED PRESENTATION FROM THE ARTIST

      Booth-Clibborn Editions, London 1996 - 334pp, profusely illustrated in color and b&w. Designed by Jonathan Barnbrook and Damien Hirst. With a chronology, bibliography, and exhibition history. Published in conjunction with Booth-Clibborn Editions and the Gagosian Gallery, "I Want to Spend My Life With You,." is likely the most lavish single trade publication to date on a contemporary artist. Frieze enfant terrible Hirst collaborated with the great Jonathan Barnbrook on its innovative, over the top design; incorporating a number of pop-ups, sliding and movable plates, transparent overlays, die-cut pages, stickers, and two posters. The book reproduces nearly every work created by the artist up to 1997, and is a lasting monument to the Saatchi decade. A most handsome copy of the 1997 Booth-Clibborn Editions British first printing with everything present bearing the BOLDLY SIGNED PRESENTATION "Happy Birthday . Love Damien (bought by .) XXX! in black ink on the title page showing a bit of sunning to the orange printed lettering at the spine. The book was purchased as a birthday gift by the husband of a fellow artist at the opening of the Royal Academy "Sensation" exhibition of the Saatchi collection which Hirst then inscribed at an after-party held later that evening at Soho's notorious The Groucho Club. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its weight and value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase.

An uncommon proof (the British trade edition would have had a proportionally smaller printing than a U.S. one would have had, and the proof equally so), especially with the proof jacket, and even more so signed by Irving. This is the first signed copy of it we have handled. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Es soll zugleich den unterschiedlichen Erkenntnisstand in den einzelnen biowissenschaftlichen Disziplinen aufzeigen und auf Gemeinsamkeiten im Aminstoffwechsel von Mikrobe, Pflanze, Tier und Mensch hinweisen. Bei der Darstellung der einzelnen Problemkomplexe wurden Nachweismethoden und die Aminproblematik tangierende Rechtsvorschriften bewußt weggelassen, um für die Darstellung biologischer, biochemischer und pathophysiologischer Prozesse genug Raum zu behalten. Das Buch soll besonders mit der Aminproblematik konfrontierten Ernährungswissenschaftlern, Nahrungsmittelproduzenten, tierärztlichen Lebensmittelhygienikern, Lebensmittelchemikern und nicht zuletzt dem praktisch tätigen Internisten Anregung und Hilfe beim Zusammenstellen zweckmäßiger Ernährungsprogramme für Aminempfindliche und Kranke bieten sowie ihr Verständnis für Aminwirkungen bei Patienten wecken.

Es soll zugleich den unterschiedlichen Erkenntnisstand in den einzelnen biowissenschaftlichen Disziplinen aufzeigen und auf Gemeinsamkeiten im Aminstoffwechsel von Mikrobe, Pflanze, Tier und Mensch hinweisen. Bei der Darstellung der einzelnen Problemkomplexe wurden Nachweismethoden und die Aminproblematik tangierende Rechtsvorschriften bewußt weggelassen, um für die Darstellung biologischer, biochemischer und pathophysiologischer Prozesse genug Raum zu behalten. Das Buch soll besonders mit der Aminproblematik konfrontierten Ernährungswissenschaftlern, Nahrungsmittelproduzenten, tierärztlichen Lebensmittelhygienikern, Lebensmittelchemikern und nicht zuletzt dem praktisch tätigen Internisten Anregung und Hilfe beim Zusammenstellen zweckmäßiger Ernährungsprogramme für Aminempfindliche und Kranke bieten sowie ihr Verständnis für Aminwirkungen bei Patienten wecken. Mit dem vorliegenden Buch hoffen wir eine Lücke im vorhandenen Schrifttum zu schließen. jeder der beteiligten Autoren hat diese Lücke bereits empfunden und aus der Zusammenarbeit am Manuskript Nutzen für die eigene Arbeit gewonnen....

        The Emigrants

      Harvill, London, UK 1996 - A true UK first edition/first printing, with the words 'This English translation first published in Great Britain in 1996' on the copyright page. A stunning copy. This was the first of Sebald's books to be translated into English, consequently a very small print run (only 'The Rings of Saturn' and the limited hardcover proof copy of 'Austerlitz' is more scarce). Translated by Michael Hulse. The author was the winner of the Berlin Literature Prize, the Literatur Nord, and many others, and his reputation continues to grow. The condition of this copy is astounding. Crisp pages, unmarked dark-blue boards. Perfect jacket, not price-clipped. This book was purchased on the day of publication, and has had no other owners (untouched in wraps ever since). No inscriptions or bookplates, of course. Please contact us if you would like to see more photos. All of our books are protected by a removable plastic cover, and dispatched with care. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

One of the central figures of Islamic culture, Rumi (1207-1273) only recently began to emerge as a poet of significance to Westerners. Zahra Partovi, the translator, who has taught the poetry of Rumi at The New School for Social Research, is widely acknowledged as one of the leading interpreters of his work for English-speaking readers. Working in the tradition of the great French publishers of the livre de peintre, such as Ambroise Vollard, Henri Kahnweiler, Teriade, and Iliazd, FitzGerald has brought the 20th century art form into the 21st century. With this assemblage of artists and crafts people, he has presented to the viewing / reading public some of the most important texts of our time in elegant and beautiful books. DIVAN-E-SHAMS is certainly at the top of this list. See an Image. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
