A memorial to the French children of the Holocaust with over 2,500 photographic images of the children. Warmly inscribed by Serge Klarsfeld. In Fine Condition. Uncommon signed and inscribed.

"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. Most were put to death in Nazi camps… 'Here each child has a story, where he was arrested and what camp he was sent to,' said Klarsfeld, himself a childhood survivor of the Nazi occupation. and a Paris lawyer who has spent his life documenting French and German war crimes in WWII. But, he said: 'This is not a book against the killers. This is a book in favor of the victims" (New York Times).

        Children of the Alley [Signed] WAS $2,850

      New York: Doubleday, 1996. First edition. Hardcover. Fine/near fine. PRESENTLY DISCOUNTED. WAS $2,850. 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.

This special composition reproduces the characteristics of antique paper and is guaranteed to last for centuries. Binding: entirely sewn by hand and bound in leather, with gold-leaf designs. Container: in wood, finished in walnut and leather with embossments. Iconography: about 200 images, the most interesting of which are full-page reproduction </p><p>CONTENTS In this volume we have reproduced all the documents pertaining to the relationship between the composer and the Venetian Theater. 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> .

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.

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.

      (VISIONAIRE) (FORD, TOM) (GUCCI). Ford, Tom, Stephen Gan, Cecilia Dean & James Kaliardos, Editors. VISIONAIRE NO. 24: LIGHT (TOM FORD FOR GUCCI). New York: Visionaire Publishing, 1996.

Limited to three thousand, three hundred copies, Visionaire No. 24: "Light" is one of the most highly prized issues of everyone&#39;s favorite deluxe fashion quarterly. For it "Visionaire teamed up with fashion luminary Tom Ford and Gucci on an issue devoted to the theme - Light. This was our most ambitious project to date in terms of content and production. There was a conscious effort on the parts of both Visionaire and Ford to steer clear of fashion and to focus on what we considered to be fine-art images. It introduced a new cast of contributors to the Visionaire fold: artists such as Sam Taylor-Wood, Andreas Gursky, and Christopher Bucklow; art director Peter Saville; animator Hayao Miyazaki; and architect Toyo Ito". The transparencies are housed in an elegant 5 1/2 x 15 x 2 1/2 inch sliding black Lucite case affixed with a silver plaque that contains a Lumigraphics light-emitting sheet operating on ten AAA batteries. Visionaire&#39;s own price for this quickly out-of-print back issue is $2,850.00 - when available. A most handsome numbered copy (#15/3300) of this beautiful object with the transparencies still in the publisher&#39;s shrinkwrap in fine working order with batteries included. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its value and weight and value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase.

        The Peoples of Middle-Earth, 1st Edition, 1st Printing, with Dustjacket

      London: Harper Collins, 1996. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. The Peoples of Middle-Earth, by J.R.R. Tolkien, edited by Christopher Tolkien. Published by Harper Collins in 1996. This book is in Near Fine condition, with no writing or previous owners names. The paper has lightly browned at the edges, as is common with the last 3 volumes of the series, due to paper quality issues. There is no foxing or offsetting to the interior of the textblock, and no spotting to the edges. The dustjacket is not priced or clipped, indicating this is the export edition. It shows very little rubbing to the glossy surface, minor edgewear with a tiny bit of color loss to the upper rear spine fold area. The spine is not faded as is often the case. This remains the toughest of the series to find, as Harper Collins pulled the edition from shelves, and pulped them, leaving only a very few copies in circulation. This is not a library or Print on Demand copy, but a highly prized true UK 1st Edition 1st Impression in wonderful condition. From the blurb, &#39;The final volume of the 12 volume series of The History of Middle-Earth in which Christopher Tolkien shows the evolution, from his fathers records and essays, of the chronology of the later Ages, the Calendars, the Hobbit genealogies, and the Westron language or Common Speech. This book concludes with two unfinished stories, The New Shadow, taking place in Gondor of The Fourth Age, and the tale of Tal-elmar, the coming of the dreaded Numenorean ships as seen through the eyes of men during the Dark Years.&#39; Additional digital images are available, inquire if interested. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions. Near Fine / Very Good Plus.

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. <br>See an <A HREF= >Image.</A><br>
