        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.

        Trinacria

      Editalia, Roma 1996 - In folio - pp.280 - Pelle con custodia - oltre 150 illustrazioni in bianco e nero e a colori - Esemplare n° 18 su 50 - Esemplare allo stato di nuovo - Rilegatura artigianale, cucitura a mano, copertina in pelle di vitello, con concia vegetale al sego, tamponata a mano all’anilina, bassorilievo in argento sul piatto di copertina contenitore in legno rivestito in pelle di vitello con specchiature a colori tiratura in 50 esemplari, numerati da 1/50 a 50/50Il volume traccia una storia della cultura letteraria siciliana dal XIII al XIX secolo mettendo in luce l’intrecciarsi di due temi, quello della fedeltà ai caratteri propri della cultura isolana e quello dell’apertura a una dimensione di più ampio respiro, nazionale ed europea. Il doppio binario su cui procede la cultura siciliana è ampiamente desumibile in questa ampia ricognizione storico-letteraria: le poesie di Jacopo da Lentini si affiancano al ‘contrasto’ popolareggiante di Cielo d’Alcamo; le rappresentazioni sacre trecentesche e quattrocentesche alle storie popolari; i ‘lamenti’ in latino o in volgare sul destino dell’uomo al teatro colto o popolare del Quattrocento e del Cinquecento; il petrarchismo dialettale di Antonio Veneziano alla produzione eroica (ed eroicomica) del Seicento e al canzoniere di Paolo Mura; la lirica di Giovanni Meli al realismo di Domenico Tempio. Senza dimenticare il teatro settecentesco, in cui si intrecciano melodramma metastasiano e ‘vastasata’ dei facchini palermitani; l’Opera dei Pupi e la sua straordinaria rielaborazione della cultura classica; e il ricco repertorio tradizionale di leggende, credenze e racconti dei ‘cuntastorie’, testimoniata nell’Ottocento e nel Novecento, da grandi studiosi delle tradizioni popolari.Il bassorilievo in argento 999‰ (cm. 24x33) è eseguito dalla Zecca di Stato da bozzetto originale di Marco Saliola della Scuola dell’Arte della Medaglia tirato in 50 esemplari numerati da 1/50 a 50/50 ogni esemplare è marcato con punzone dell’I.P.Z.S. E' raffigurata una figura femminile al centro della composizione, ripresa da una litografia ottocentesca, è la Personificazione della Sicilia che reca con sé elementi simbolici della natura e della cultura dell’Isola. La ricca composizione che fa da cornice è liberamente ispirata agli stucchi che decorano l’oratorio della Confraternita di San Lorenzo di Palermo, opera dello scultore barocco Giacomo Serpotta (seconda metà del XVI secolo). Al centro, in alto, campeggia il simbolo della Sicilia. - Libro usato

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.

        The Imaginary Girlfriend

      Bloomsbury, (London) 1996 - The uncorrected proof copy of the first British edition of this title, which was incorporated into the U.S. edition of Trying to Save Piggy Sneed and had no separate U.S. printing. Inscribed by Irving. Fine in a near fine, proof dust jacket, worn where it overlays the proof, with the price of £13.99 (later lowered to £9.99). 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]

        The Golden Compass (Northern Lights), The Subtle Knife, The Amber Spyglass - His Dark Materials Trilogy

      Knopf, New York 1996 - A very fine signed set of the American First Edition, First Impression of Philip Pullman's award winning His Dark Materials trilogy consisting of The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass. The Golden Compass is signed and dedicated by Philip Pullman to the heroine of his trilogy "Lyra", increasing its rarity value. The Golden Compass was published in the UK as Northern Lights but the movie starring Dakota Blue Richards as Lyra, Daniel Craig, Nicole Kidman and Sam Elliott used the American Title, making it a very attractive acquisition. Philip Pullman's creation has been recognised as a masterpiece and won many awards. Northern Lights won the Carnegie Medal, the Guardian Award and Children's Book Of The Year Award at the British Book Awards. The Amber Spyglass was the winner of Whitbread Book Of The Year - the first Children's novel to do so. The Golden Compass was signed by Philip Pullman with his trademark blue pen at the Sunday Times Oxford Book Festival. The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass were signed by Philip Pullman at The Times Literature Festival in Cheltenham, again using his blue pen. Photographs of the signings are available. Each book is protected by a transparent and removable cover. The Golden Compass consisting of 399 pages and pubished in 1996 is bound in quarter blue cloth with gold titles on the spine plus the price on the fine dust jacket. A small typed ownership label is on the book but the book itself is unread. The Subtle Knife consisting of 326 pages and published in 1997 is bound in quarter blue cloth with gold titles on the spine plus the price on the fine dust jacket. The Amber Spyglass consisting of 518 pages and published in October 2000 is bound in chocolate brown board with gold titles on the spine and a oval window through the dust wrapper to pictorial cover plus the price on the fine dust jacket.

        Genesis. No. 21 of 200 copies.

      Arion Press, San Francisco 1996 - Arion Press. Genesis. Translated from the Hebrew by Robert Alter. Largo folio, printed in two colors on handmade paper. No. 21 of 200 copies, signed by the translator at the foot of the colophon. Original two-color frontispiece etching by Michael Mazur, signed by the artist. 412 x 293 mm. Original purple handmade paper wrappers, cloth chemise and slipcase. Prospectus included. Mint copy."Designed as a large folio, the Arion edition is a typographic monument that balances the Hebrew and English texts on facing pages . . . Robert Alter's translation of Genesis is an experiment in re-presenting the Bible--and, above all, biblical narrative prose--in a language that conveys with some precision the semantic nuances and the lively orchestration of literary effects of the Hebrew and at the same time has stylistic and rhythmic integrity as literary English" (Prospectus).

        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]
