        VISIONAIRE NO. 17: GOLD (1996) - DISPLAY COPY

      Visionaire Publishing, New York 1996 - Individual illustrated sheets laid into an embossed gold paper over boards portfolio, profusely illustrated in monochrome and duotone. Designed by Gregory Foley and Florentino J. Pamintuan. Published in an edition of two thousand, five hundred copies, this is the seventeenth installment of everyone's favorite long-running luxe fashion quarterly, Visionaire. "For some time we had imagined a gilded issue-heavily embellished, incredibly ornate. "Gold" gave us the perfect opportunity to go for baroque. The cover of the issue was hologrammed, embossed, and foil stamped, all on an already solid-gold background. Up until this point, it was one of the most extravagant and delirious issues we had ever created. There were seven pages of Philip Taaffe's gold stars foil stamped onto vellum, which ran an average of a dollar per page - a slight extravagance considering we had at least another fifty pages to fill. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin's fashion photographs featured gold-foil stamping on top of four-color prints - crazy in theory but even more so in practice, when sometimes the only foil-stamped element was the stud earring in the model's ear! Cecilia tracked down OrigamiUSA, who folded a gold-paper goldfish for each issue, and Todd Oldham contributed actual gilded-metal halos. Such frivolities came thanks to this issue's sponsor, the Japanese department store Beams". A handsome unnumbered hors commerce example of this uncommon issue marked "Display Copy" by the publisher showing a small scrape and a torn corner joint to the gold portfolio along with some light overall wear and handling to the box and contents. It has been priced accordingly. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase.

        Umriss der amerikanischen politischen Ökonomie. In 12 Briefen aus dem Jahr 1827. Outlines of American political economy. In twelve letters to Charles J. Ingersoll. With a commentary by Michael Liebig and an epilogue by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

      Wiesbaden: Böttiger., 1996.. 349 Seiten. Gebundene Ausgabe. Text in dt. und engl. Sprache.. Illustrierter Hardcoverband in sehr gutem, ungenutztem Zustand. - An den Herausgeber der National Gazette: Professor List, welcher die beiliegenden Briefe an mich gerichtet hat, ist ein Mann von ehrenwertem Charakter und unschätzbaren Kenntnissen, der aus politischen Gründen aus Deutschland verbannt wurde und den Wunsch hegt, dieses Land [die Vereinigten Staaten] zu seiner Heimat zu machen. Nachdem er mehrere Jahre hindurch Professor der politischen Ökonomie an der Universität von Tübingen im Königreich Württemberg gewesen war, wurde er zum Rechtskonsulenten des Deutschen Handels- und Gewerbevereins gewählt, der ein deutsches System der Nationalökonomie erreichen will. In dieser Eigenschaft als Rechtskonsulent besuchte er verschiedene Höfe in Deutschland und nahm am Kongreß der deutschen Minister in Wien (1820) teil. Dann wurde er zum Mitglied des Abgeordnetenhauses des Königreiches Württemberg gewählt, wo er den Versuch unternahm, das Geschworenengericht und die Öffentlichkeit des gerichtlichen Verfahrens in Kriminal- und Zivilprozessen in seinem Land gesetzlich einzuführen. Da seine Reformpläne der Regierung verhaßt waren, wurde Herr List des Hochverrats angeklagt und ins Gefängnis geworfen. Nach mehreren Jahren strafrechtlicher Verfolgung. erlaubte man ihm schließlich, Württemberg mit einem Paß zu verlassen und eine wissenschaftliche Reise in die Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika anzutreten. Hier kam er vor ungefähr zwei Jahren an, in mehreren Empfehlungsschreiben von General Lafayette als Mann der Wissenschaft und verbannter Patriot herzlichst empfohlen. Er wohnt nun hier in Reading in diesem Staate; da er sich zur Zeit seiner Professur in Deutschland mit Studien und Vorlesungen über die Lehren der politischen Ökonomie beschäftigt hatte, verfolgte er den letzthin in Harrisburg abgehaltenen Kongreß aufmerksam und richtete dann eine Reihe von Briefen an mich. Indem ich Ihnen diese Briefe zur Veröffentlichung unterbreite, entspreche ich seinem Wunsche, seinem neuen Vaterlande, das ihn aufgenommen hat, einen Dienst zu erweisen und seine Sachkenntnisse in höchst interessanten und viel umstrittenen Fragen allgemein bekannt zu machen. Einige von Ihren Korrespondenten dürften vielleicht Professor List als einen .. (Einleitung)

Mappe: 54 x 54 cm; 7 Orig.-Holzschnitte: 53 x 52 cm; , Kunst-Ldr.-Mappe mit losen Blatt., 1 Blatt der mit kleinem kaum sichtbaren Flecklein, sonst tadell Preis in CHF: 880. Nr. 392 von 500 num. Exemplaren. Dies ist die 8. Auflage die im Kupfertiefdruckatelier von Peter Kneubühler auf Zerkall-Bütten von den Originalstöcken im Handabrieb abgezogen wurden. - Die Stöcke wurden um 1859 wiederaufgefunden und wurden seitdem mehrmals abgezogen. Der berühmte Murersche Stadtplan von Zürich aus dem Jahr 1576 gehört zu den Planveduten, die im 16. Jht in der Eidgenossenschaft nach dem Vorbild grosser ausländischer Städte wie Augsburg, Strassburg, Venedig usw. Mode wurden. Jos (Jodocus) Murer (1530 - 1580) wirkte in Zürich als Glasmaler, konstruierte Sonnenuhren, dichtete Dramen und zeichnete f. Holzschnitte (es ist ungewiss ob er selber auch Holzschneider war). Die auf ein Tuch gemalte Darstellung überreichte Murer 1574 dem Rat der Stadt Zürich. Ludwig Fryg schuf dann die Holzstöcke die sich heute im Staatsarchiv befinden. Den Druck übernahm der berühmte Drucker Christoph Froschauer erstmals 1576. Von diesem ist kein Exemplar mehr nachweisbar. 1670 ist eine zweite und 1766 eine dritte Auflage nachgewiesen.
