      New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 1996. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. As New/No Dust Jacket, As Issued.. New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 1996. Hardcover. As New/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. 545 pages. Retrospective collection of short stories. Advance Reader&#39;s Edition/Limited Edition of 200 signed copies. The first appearance of the title in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with the regular trade edition. They have the same ISBN. The edition is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Alfred A. Knopf: Regular-sized volume format. Cream cloth boards with gilt titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Short stories by Alice Munro. Purple pictorial slipcase with titles on one side. In publisher&#39;s original shrinkwrap. Printed on pristine-white, archival stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Gathers and presents twenty-eight of the most representative and finest short stories by arguably its greatest living writer. "There&#39;s nothing quite like a retrospective collection of short stories by a virtuoso of the form: Neither novels nor poetry nor memoirs present readers with such richness, such surprise, such twists of fate, and such quirks of personality. With this gathering of the best of nearly three decades of work, Alice Munro&#39;s place in the constellation of short story Masters, which includes such kindred spirits as Sherwood Anderson, Flannery O&#39;Connor, and William Maxwell, is affirmed and celebrated. Like her peers, Munro has established a distinctive territory: The country and small towns that hug the shores of Lake Huron. In story after story, each so different in content and mood from the next, Munro achieves a consistent and remarkable ease of syntax, delicacy of psychology, and resonance of visual imagery. There is much to savor and treasure here. A true literary event, the publication of this generous selection of stories, drawn from Alice Munro&#39;s seven collections, gives enormous reading pleasure while it confirms Munro&#39;s place in the front rank of today&#39;s writers of fiction" (Publisher&#39;s blurb). "Our Chekhov" (Cynthia Ozick). An absolute "must-have" edition for Alice Munro collectors. <b><i> This is a copy of the Advance Reader&#39;s Edition/Limited Edition, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in pen on the publisher&#39;s tipped-in page by Alice Munro. Her publisher has issued several special editions such as this of her books because throughout her long career, Munro made very few public appearances, and is a reluctant signer at best. As such, most of her books are signed on a bookplate, which are much less desirable than copies signed on either the title page or tipped-in page. This title is a modern classic. This is one of very few copies of the Advance Reader&#39;s Edition/Limited Edition still available online, is still in the publisher&#39;s original shrinkwrap, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Its value will not only keep but keep going up over time. A very rare signed copy thus. </b></i> Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2013. One of the greatest living writers. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ALICE MUNRO TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0679446273.

        BEATO DE LIEBANA - CODEX SAN ANDRES DE ARROYO (2 Bände: 1 Band Beatus-Apokalypse und 1 Kommentarband) - Faksimile-Ausgabe der Handschrift Nouv. acq. lat. 2290 in der Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris - LIMITIERT - TADELLOSES EXEMPLAR

      Moleiro Verlag Barcelona 1996 - Beatus von Liébana (gestorben nach 798) war ein spanischer Mönch und Theologe. Berühmt wurde er durch seinen Kommentar zur biblischen Apokalypse in zwölf Büchern (um 776). Der Text ist in 34 Handschriften und Fragmenten des 9. bis 16. Jahrhunderts erhalten. Die illustrierten Handschriften werden jeweils ebenfalls Beatus genannt. Beatus' Motivation für den Apokalypsenkommentar war das mit dem Jahr 800 erwartete Weltende. Der Beatus von Arroyo entstand zwischen 1210 und 1220 im Kloster San Pedro de Cardeña. Wahrscheinlich gab Ferdinand III. den Codex als Geschenk für das Zisterzienserkloster San Andrés de Arroyo in Auftrag. Diese sehr späte Beatus-Apokalypse (Familie II, Zweig B) besticht sowohl durch die fast verschwenderische Verwendung von Lapislazuli und Blattgold als auch durch seine relative Vollständigkeit. Heute wird die Handschrift als Nouv. acq. lat. 2290 in der Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris aufbewahrt. Der Moleiro Verlag Barcelona schuf 1996 in aufwendiger Handarbeit lediglich 987 Exemplare (streng limitiert und handnummeriert).

Er erlangte eine Macht und einen Reichtum wie kaum jemand vor oder nach ihm.

Printed on pristine-white, archival stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Gathers and presents twenty-eight of the most representative and finest short stories by arguably its greatest living writer. "There's nothing quite like a retrospective collection of short stories by a virtuoso of the form: Neither novels nor poetry nor memoirs present readers with such richness, such surprise, such twists of fate, and such quirks of personality. With this gathering of the best of nearly three decades of work, Alice Munro's place in the constellation of short story Masters, which includes such kindred spirits as Sherwood Anderson, Flannery O'Connor, and William Maxwell, is affirmed and celebrated. Like her peers, Munro has established a distinctive territory: The country and small towns that hug the shores of Lake Huron. In story after story, each so different in content and mood from the next, Munro achieves a consistent and remarkable ease of syntax, delicacy of psychology, and resonance of visual imagery. There is much to savor and treasure here. A true literary event, the publication of this generous selection of stories, drawn from Alice Munro's seven collections, gives enormous reading pleasure while it confirms Munro's place in the front rank of today's writers of fiction" (Publisher's blurb). "Our Chekhov" (Cynthia Ozick). An absolute "must-have" edition for Alice Munro collectors. This is a copy of the Advance Reader's Edition/Limited Edition, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in pen on the publisher's tipped-in page by Alice Munro. Her publisher has issued several special editions such as this of her books because throughout her long career, Munro made very few public appearances, and is a reluctant signer at best. As such, most of her books are signed on a bookplate, which are much less desirable than copies signed on either the title page or tipped-in page. This title is a modern classic. This is one of very few copies of the Advance Reader's Edition/Limited Edition still available online, is still in the publisher's original shrinkwrap, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Its value will not only keep but keep going up over time. A very rare signed copy thus. One of the greatest living writers. A fine collectible copy.
