        The Goose Egg Nugget (Klondyke Edition) - Limited Edition Print (Signed)

      1996. Print. New. Lithograph print by Carl Barks on Acid-free Paper. SIGNED NUMBERED PRINT. Size: 8" x 10" (203mm x 254mm). Carl Barks was asked in an interview on June 24, 1984 to comment on his paintings in general, and his own favourites in particular, of the 122 he did that were published in Another Rainbow's The Fine Art of Walt Disney's Donald Duck. He responded with a smile, I always liked The Goose Egg Nugget very much -- it told its own story. Another Rainbow produced it as a mini litho and did a full-size print of another that Barks said was a very close second, Nobody's Spending Fool. If collectors today thought they wanted to invest in a single lithograph, serious consideration would have to be given to The Goose Egg Nugget! This is the story of his masterpiece. One day many long years ago, young prospector Scrooge McDuck brazenly strode into the local Dawson City saloon. As all (well, almost all) patrons stare in wide-eyed wonder, he reaches into his poke and reveals the gold that will forever separate him from every other seeker of fortune in the Klondike -- The Goose Egg Nugget! In this painting, Carl Barks wove a rich tapestry of tension that draws the viewer's gaze inexorably to the prize, glittering in light that seems to come more from Scrooge's look of unbridled triumph than from the dim oil lamp. This painting was issued as a limited edition miniature lithograph by Another Rainbow, the thirty second (32nd) of a long-run series, rendered in fourteen (14) colours and touchplates, printed by Chicago's Black Box on Opalesque Keramique, an exotic archival paper with exceptional ink holdout. The Goose Egg Nugget comes with a comic book reprinting the story behind the painting, "Back to the Klondike, which first appeared in Uncle Scrooge #2 (1953). LIMITED TO 100 copies. These 100 commemorative prints were issued for the benefit of the Klondyke Centennial Society in Dawson City, Yukon. Print comes with Full-colour, comic reprint of Back to the Klondike.

"In an exhaustive feat of research presented as a memorial… Serge Klarsfield spent decades restoring the names of 11,400 French Jewish children who were deported during WWII.

But, he said: 'This is not a book against the killers. This is a book in favor of the victims" (New York Times).

A Fine, Superior, copy of the first American edition, first printing, in a Very Near Fine dust jacket (a small closed tear to the front panel near the flap fold - repaired by a small piece of tape to the jacket's verso, not visible on the exterior, slight push to spine head), SIGNED BY NAGUIB MAHFOUZ on the half-title; the history of a tumultuous alley whose residents, some of whom are fearsome, some fearless, and some fearful, all descended from a single man, Gabalawi, who kept to his mansion at the alley's end. Naguib Mahfouz "who, through works rich in nuance - now clear-sightedly realistic, now evocatively ambiguous - has formed an Arabian narrative art that applies to all mankind", won the 1988 Nobel Prize in Literature, making him the only Egyptian, and the only author writing in Arabic, ever to win the Prize. In 1994 Mahfouz survived an assassination attempt perpetrated by religious extremists. The attack damaged nerves in his right hand, rendering Mahfouz unable to write for more than a few minutes each day, and seriously affecting his handwriting as seen in his signature to this book. This copy belonged to Actor Jack Palance and carries the bookplate from the 2006 sale of his personal property to the front pastedown. Signed copies of this Nobel Prize Winner's books are rather uncommon and nice copies of this title are surprisingly scarce. Accordingly, signed copies of this title in a condition as nice as is this one are rarely seen. A Fine copy, PREVIOUSLY BELONGING TO JACK PALANCE AND SIGNED BY NAGUIB MAHFOUZ.

        The Hub: An Illustrated Weekly for Wheelmen and Wheelwomen. Volume I (August 8-October 31, 1896) and Volume II (November 7, 1896-January 30, 1897)

      London: George Newnes Two volumes bound as one. Volume I: 7 (index), 520 pages. Volume II: 6 (index), 544 pages. Profusely illustrated in b/w. Many interesting advertisements throughout. Original maroon cloth (heavily flecked) with gilt titling and rules on the spine. Small hole in cloth spine. Slight waterstains on first few pages, which have a few short closed tears. Rare first volumes of this fascinating magazine from the heyday of cycling. The Hub was a short-lived publication, only surviving for thirteen volumes from 1996-1899. It's especially interesting in that it tried very hard to attract women readers with many articles on cycling fashions, health, social news, advice, etc. A regular feature was "Women of Note in the Cycling World". Women feature in many of the illustrations and advertisements.. Hard Cover. Good.

Rough drafts of scenery, costumes and stage designs--all belonging to La Fenice&#146;s Historic Archives-- are published here in annoted form. The book is divided into two parts: 1) Rough draft designs for stage sets and costumes. Following an essay of introduction written by Maria Ida Biggi, is the presentation of the graphic materials which were almost all lost in the 1996 fire. The images, which had fortunately been reproduced before the fire and added to the scholar&#146;s personal archives, therefore constitute a unique testimony of the lost materials. Costume and set designs are subdivided by operas; this part of the volume is then subdivided into sections, each one relating to an opera composed by Verdi. 2) Resources and documents. With an essay of introduction written by the director of the Historic Archives at the Teatro La Fenice, Franco Rossi, (who was responsible for the selection and the indexing of the materials) , the entire corpus of the Verdian paper documents from the Archives are herein published: autographed letters by Verdi, playbills for premiere operas, photographic material realting to Verdi, and the most famous interpretations of his operas, frontispieces of the original libretti, the first pages of music scores with hand-written notes by the composer himself, etc. All of the documents, for the most part previously unpublished, regarding the operas composed by Verdi for the Fenice (Ermani, Attila, Rigoletto, Traviata, Simon Boccanegra) have been temporarily conserved at the Levi Foundation along with other informative records.  </p><p>AUTHORS Franco Rossi, director of the Archivio Storico della Fenice and Maria Ida Biggi, professor of History of Scenography at the University Ca&#146; Foscari of Venice.  </p><p>INSTITUTIONS This volume was commissioned by the Historical Archives of Il Teatro La Fenice. </p> .

        Alchemy & Marbling

      Joppe, The Netherlands: Karli Frigge, 1996. 75 pp: 22 pp. introduction in English, 19 leaves with 24 original tipped-in marbles with surprising shapes.

Of all marbles the recipes and descriptions of marbling experiments are given. Half the experiments have been done in black paint: a prerequisite to do the work. Moreover, this shows the shapes and structures to their best advantage. It is not until the last chapter that colours are shown in surprising gradations. Bound by the author, in 100 copies, signed by the author. Black decorated boards with parchment strips on a leather spine, according to the old Dutch bookbinding method.

        WATERFALL RAPTURE: POSTCARDS OF FALLING WATER, MY ADDICTION, MY COLLECTION, MY EDITION

      Tokyo, Japan: Shinchosha Company Publishers, 1996. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. As New/As New Dust Jacket.. Tokyo, Japan: Shinchosha Company Publishers, 1996. Hardcover. As New/As New. First Edition/First Printing. 288 pages. Artist Book. One of the greatest photography books of the 20th century. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. The book is now rare. A magnificent production by Tadanori Yokoo: Oversize-volume format. Red hard boards with black titles on spine, as issued. Postcards collected, photographed, and assembled by Tadanori Yokoo. Essay by Hiroshi Aramata appended at the end. Promotional blue obi-band wrapped around the book. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Tokyo, Japan to absolutely the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with colorful titles and design on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents what is unquestionably the single most glorious book on the art of the postcard and its intimate relation to photography, graphic design, and collecting. "Waterfall Rapture" utilizes the "multiplier effect" to celebrate and capture in book form the rapturous experience called collecting. Every postcard is a reproduction of a photograph (including the photograph of a painting or work of art) . Each of the postcards in his massive collection was photographed by Yokoo to create his book. These photographs appear as miniature reproductions in the book, that is, as photographs of photographs of photographs of photographs, beautifully, lovingly, and obsessively assembled on every page by the graphic designer. The exhilarating result is a book that is a one-of-a-kind, which is every collector&#39;s dream object, and the postcard, photography, graphic design, and collecting finally come full circle: My addiction, my collection, my edition. Why does a human being become a collector? According to Susan Sontag (in "On Photography") , the ultimate reason is that it is the most effective way to understand oneself and somehow possess the world. According to Tadanori Yokoo, it is because: "A collection is addictive. A collection is a deviation from the system. A collection is spiritual. A collection is the unification of life and art. A collection is the soul&#39;s salvation. A collection is the pursuit of beauty. A collection is the discipline of intuition. A collection transforms quantity into quality". And ultimately because: "A collection has no purpose" (Tadanori Yokoo) . Sontag and Yokoo are really saying the same thing: Collecting is about oneself, a self-portrait, not about what one is collecting. "He found space somewhere in the book for each and every single postcard. Dear reader, don&#39;t skip over a single one. Have no doubt that by participating in this memorial, you too will surely be able to find deliverance from your earthly suffering" (Hiroshi Aramata) . Pure rapture, absolute bliss. A "must-have" title for Tadanori Yokoo collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed (in Japanese characters, kanji style) in black marker by Tadanori Yokoo. This is an Import title and is now highly collectible. This is one of only two signed copies still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> 13, 000 color plates. Tadanori Yokoo&#39;s "Waterfall Rapture" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". The greatest living graphic designer. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER TADANORI YOKOO TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 4104110019.
