        Planvedute der Stadt Zürich 1576. Handabzüge von den Original-Holzdruckstöcken.

      Zürich, Staatsarchiv /Vermessungsamt der Stadt Zürich, 1996. 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.

        Memoirs

      London: Doubleday, 1996. First English edition. Octavo, original cloth. Signed and dated in 1997 by Mikhail Gorbachev opposite the title page. Also signed on a bookplate. Fine in a fine dust jacket. "A timely reminder of what made Gorbachev so revolutionary back in 1985, these memoirs offer a detailed but readable chronicle of his achievements at the top, with the domestic and foreign policy aspects of perestroika covered, chronologically, in separate sections that comprise two thirds of the book. Highly educated compared with his predecessors, Gorbachev is remarkably fair, even to political enemies like Yeltsin, and it often seems that being too nice was part of his undoing. Especially revealing are the real or perceived limits on his power, at the top, to carry out reforms at home despite his successes in foreign policy" (Library Journal).

        Encyclopedia of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, Historical Perspectives Vol. 1

      John Wiley & Sons 1996 - A very good near-A4 sized 728 page (plus index) hardback book. From the personal collection of a retired professor of physics, and one of the contributors to the work, with a little scattered pencilling throughout - I've erased what I could find, though I've probably missed some. Obviously not a man to suffer from undue modesty, he had neatly lined every apearance of his own name, and those with whom he had collaborated, amongst other things. It's not heavily done, and quite innocuous anyway. Otherwise unmarked, no inscriptions, virtually unworn. Other than the residue of the pencilling, this could pass for a new book. And what a book! The entire history of the development of NMR, by the people who did the work - a three and a half page list of contributors covering the period from the beginnings in 1945/6 to the early 90s, orgainised into 18 sections. Heavily illustrated, of course, with countless references and an 85 page index. This is a must for anyone involved, or just interested, in this field. A massive book, weighing just under 3kg - it will be well over 3kg when packed. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        An Avian Alphabet

      Witney, Oxford: Inky Parrot Press, 1996. Small quarto. (52)pp. One of fourteen hand-colored copies, signed by the artist and author. A humorous abecedarium devoted to various species of birds, illustrated with bold, stylized linocuts by Elizabeth Rashley. Each is hand-colored in bright hues and is accompanied by "alliterative allegations" by Nyr Indicator. For example, the Dodo is a "Dear Departed Dodderer" who "Died out in Disgrace," and the Kiwi is described as a "Kissable Kittenish Kewpie / Kindrid of Maori Kings." In a nod to a classic of British humor, the letter X is represented by the "eX-Parrot / Only eXisting eXample eXpired." Bound in orange paper-covered boards printed with birds, and housed in a slipcase with different avian linocuts pasted on each side. Very fine.

        The White Spider

      Limited Editions Club, New York 1996 - Signed Limited Edition. Hardcover in Clamshell Box. The White Spider is mountaineer Heinrich Harrer's account of not only his own successful ascent, but the stories, alternately inspiring and tragic, of many other attempts to climb the North Face of the Eiger mountain in switzerland. The author was one of a team of four who were the first to scale the Eiger's North Face, nicknamed "Death Wall," in 1938. The text traces the almost mythical aspects of the climb: the "Difficult Crack," the "Rote Fluh," the "Swallow's Nest," the "Sea Horse," the "Traverse of the Gods," and finally "The White Spider," that which makes the Eiger's North Face, despite having a lower altitude than Everest, K2, Kangchenjunga, or the Alps' many summits, "the veritable monster of them all" (from the laid-in LEC newsletter). With six phogravure plates produced from the author's collection and the geological decoration to the front cover cover, this fine printing is truly stunning. Signed by Heinrich Harrer, on the colophon. Binding is 1/4 gray goatskin and slate linen, with inset matching goatskin and lustrous mica particles scraped from the face of the Eiger in a three-dimensional crag formation on the cover. In a black cloth clamshell box, interior lined with velvet. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Illustrated Long Walk To Freedom Limited Edition (one of 425 copies) SIGNED and DATED with FULL SIGNATURE

      Little Brown and company 1996 - The magnificent illustrated and limited edition of Nelson Mandela's brilliant autobiography. Quarter bound by hand in wassa goatskin leather from South Africa and housed in the original custom made, silk-lined presentation box complete with a silk ribbon bookmark. Includes a specially commissioned portrait of the great man taken by Benny Gool that is SIGNED and DATED by Mandela. A reassuringly exclusive print run, this is copy 137 of only 425 copies. Additionally, this is one of the few copies out of that 425 with the FULL 'Nelson Mandela' signature (as opposed to his usual 'N Mandela'). It is unknown how many copies have the full signature, but we can say without doubt that the vast majority of the 425 are signed in his usual way. This is a particularly special example then, stored and handled carefully over the c20 years since publication and thus, happily, in near fine condition throughout. Widely considered among collectors as THE edition of Long Walk To Freedom to own, this is a stunning publication. (NB We have been dealing in carefully sourced Mandela books for over a decade - please be vigilant when considering to buy books and items allegedly 'signed' by Mandela. There are some excellent and honest dealers out there but unfortunately there are many dubious books now in the open market. Three points to consider: look for evidence of provenance before authenticity certificates; question whether Mandela would be likely to sign a book about him, but not written by him; and check with the publisher whether the book on offer is a genuine 'limited' or 'special' edition as claimed, or rather a re-bound trade edition for example. We will gladly and freely give our professional opinion of the authenticity of a signed Mandela book you are considering to purchase.) ABOUT US: It is our philosophy at N V to provide the astute collector with high quality books, whilst offering a service that is always friendly and helpful. EVERY listing has a sharp digital image (or images) of the EXACT book(s) that you are perusing. The accompanying description is meticulous and we guarantee that all items are authentic.

Mikhail Sergeyevich Gorbachev born 2 March 1931) was the seventh and last General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, serving from 1985 until 1991, and the last head of state of the USSR, serving from 1988 until its collapse in 1991. He was the only Soviet leader to have been born after the October Revolution of 1917. Gorbachev was born in Stavropol Krai into a peasant family, and in his teens operated combine harvesters on collective farms. He graduated from Moscow State University in 1955 with a degree in law. While at university, he joined the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, and soon became very active within it. In 1970, he was appointed the First Party Secretary of the Stavropol Kraikom, First Secretary to the Supreme Soviet in 1974, and appointed a member of the Politburo in 1979. Gorbachev was elected General Secretary by the Politburo in 1985. Gorbachev&#39;s attempts at reform as well as summit conferences with United States President Ronald Reagan and his reorientation of Soviet strategic aims contributed to the end of the Cold War, ended the political supremacy of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (CPSU) and led to the dissolution of the Soviet Union. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1990. Dust jacket now in Brodart mylar protective (clear) cover.
