This extremely beautiful book contains original graphic works and one sculpture (glass laid in to back of custom-made clamshell box) by 15 artists, some mounted, some on multiple or folded leaves, some on colored or translucent paper; most signed in pencil by the respective artist. Vincent FitzGerald and Zahra Partovi have now collaborated on nine books presenting the writings of the 13th century Persian poet, jurist, theologian and teacher of Sufism, Jalaluddin Mohammad Rumi. 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.

By far the most famous of Krass Clement's books.»...The bulk of the book was photographed in a single evening with only three rolls of 35 mm film...The evening in question was spent in a pub in Drum in rural Ireland and Clement concentrated on one principal character - a hunched, weatherbeaten old man, who sits alone with his drink, apparently lost in his own thoughts while the life in the pub goes on unheedingly around him...It is not style, however, but quality of observation that makes this book so relevant to the depiction of modern life...« (Parr & Badger II, 81)

        The History of Middle Earth, Volumes 1-12, and The Silmarillion

      Allen & Unwin/Unwin Hyman/Harper Collins London: Allen & Unwin/Unwin Hyman/Harper Collins. 1977, 1983-1996. A complete set of the first editions of these tales, poems, and songs underlay The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Tolkien began writing these tales while in college, 40 years before LOTR was published. He was a student of philology, the study of historical linguistics and the rules by which languages evolve, and in his writing he invented archaic languages and the stories told in those languages, and then tracked the evolution of both the stories and the language until they became the legends and mythology that informed Middle Earth. This is part of what gives the Trilogy its powerful sense of reality and immediacy, but the stories are compelling in and of themselves, beyond the degree to which they inform his masterpiece. In particular, these stories, most of them written between 1913 and the early 1940s, give the lie to the simplistic notion that Tolkien's trilogy is a mere analogue for the conflicts involved in World War II. If anything, it was the First World War -- with its senseless, mechanized destruction on a heretofore unimaginable scale -- that influenced Tolkien in his view that battle between the forces of good and evil was not a struggle of ideologies so much as one between a world view in harmony with nature and one that focused on unchecked industrial development. Published over the course of more than a dozen years, complete sets are difficult to assemble as all of the volumes had small first printings, and some were positively tiny -- 1500 copies or so. Volume 5 has a small nick at the upper rear spine fold; otherwise a fine set in fine, unclipped dust jackets. The Silmarillion and Volumes 1, 2 and 4 have no printed prices, as issued; Volume 4 has an A&U price sticker. Volumes 10 and 11 have printed prices on the flaps (in contrast to the unprinted export edition dust jackets, which, by the usual standards of the publication process, probably preceded those with printed prices). The ultimate history of the worlds that underlay The Lord of the Rings. . First Edition. Hardcover.
