        British Rave Flyers

      England, Australia, Scotland 1996 - A collection of over 1000 English Rave flyers from 1990 to 1996 advertising parties throughout the country with groundbreaking acts such as The Prodigy, Justin Berkman, and Adam Realtime. The flyers exhibit the range of the rave scene in early 90's Britain. They include everything from simple photocopied efforts to professionally produced, four-color dye-cut handouts complete with images of Technicolor drugs, popular cartoon characters, naked women, and with telephone numbers and occasional maps to clandestine locations. All the flyers are near fine or better with some slight scattered wear with a few duplicates.When punk didn't live up to its promises an aging sect of British youth were left disillusioned. Gavin Watson, author of Raving '89 said "We still felt young enough that we didn't want to disappear into mature life. Rave came along at just the right time." Imported from Chicago, the denizens of the English counter culture were introduced to House Music and Ecstasy between 1988 and 1989, creating a vibrant and infamous club scene.Faced with a countrywide ethos of "go it alone," rave culture attracted those who wanted community and a way of "losing themselves in the crowd." With party crowds sometime reaching into the thousands, it was easy for ravers to feel they were a part of something bigger than themselves. Accelerated by massive amounts of the "wonder" drug Ecstasy, the party seemed likely to never stop. In Britain, Rave Culture blossomed in 1990 when it stopped relying on American Hip Hop imports and found a sound of their own. London warehouses were overflowing with bodies so the partiers relocated to the countryside where remote open fields allowed for bigger gatherings. English House became infamous for its use of a "mutant hybrid of hip hop breakbeats, seismic reggae bass, stabbing riffs and mindwarping samples." At the same time that Britain's DJs found a voice, it was becoming increasingly easier to create tracks at home, opening the door for teenagers and amateur producers to become involved in the scene. The quick and massive popularity of E culture made it easy for these tracks to find their way on to the radio via pirate stations while bands such as The Prodigy and N-Joi even made the crossover to FM pop stations.Early flyers include little more than a few lines of text and a telephone number provided in order to call for the rave's location, while later examples are ornate works of disposable art featuring psychedelic graphics, reflective inks, dye-cut shapes, and inspired take-offs of popular consumer products and cultural touchstones of the day. Some of the more notable examples include the women from Absolutely Fabulous promoting "Hype Productions Pre Christmas Party"; Felix the Cat with trippy gremlins for "Pyramid Promotions Innersense"; Drew Barrymore posing with a gun with several actors from the television show Northern Exposure on a flyer for "Seaside Special: Babealicious."1992 saw the biggest turn out and success of the scene. Groups of up to 35,000 people attended commercial raves which reached their apex at the Castlemorton Common Festival that May. An estimated 40,000 people attended the week-long party hosted by Spiral Tribe that boasted the biggest names in hardcore including Back to the Planet, AOS3, and Poisoned Electrik Head. It was the largest festival since the 1980's gatherings at Stonehenge and was too big for authorities to shut down leading to the development of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act of 1994.A year later in 1993 rave culture was in decline. Police were cracking down on illegal parties and commercial raves were ripe with scams and fraud. Simultaneously the effects of long term Ecstasy use were finally being realized including paranoia and panic attacks. Thus began a sub culture of "euphoria and aggression" more akin to the "teenage rush culture" of extreme sports. Clubs arose across the country using the police crackdown as a way to make money off of kids stil

        Sketchbook with 119 full page drawings of female nudes on one side of the page

      Berkeley: Circa 1960s. 12 x 9 inches. Pencil, ink and charcoal drawings of nudes. Provenance: Estate of the artist. James Steward - exhibition notes 1996. When Berkeley-based artist Edward Hagedorn died in 1982, few members of the Bay Area art-going public would have known of his work. Although he lived in the Bay Area for eighty years, after much early success the eccentric and idealistic Hagedorn, troubled by personal shyness, ceased to exhibit his work publicly in the late 1930s. Yet he remained obsessed with creating images of primal force. Despite living the last thirty years of his life as a virtual recluse-described by an artist colleague as a "walking question mark with no use for success"-he left behind him a remarkable body of work that is only now coming to be known. This work suggests that it is fair to appraise Hagedorn as the most important Expressionist artist to have come out of California. Born in San Francisco in 1902, Hagedorn enrolled at the San Francisco Art Association by the age of sixteen, and then around 1923 to 1925 at the California School of Fine Arts, where his teachers included artists who had been profoundly influenced by the Armory Show and who had even participated in the Pan-Pacific Exposition. Hagedorn exhibited frequently throughout the late 1920s and '30s with members of the "Society of Six," even winning honors from the Brooklyn Museum and the Pennsylvania Academy, sharing their Fauvist-influenced, Expressionist aesthetic. However he resisted frequent overtures from dealers and curators that might have brought him increased acclaim. Enabled in part by the inheritance of substantial means from his maternal family, Hagedorn abruptly ceased to show his work publicly in the late 1930s. The spirit went out of much of his work from about 1940, and although Hagedorn continued to make art throughout most of his life, it often devolved into trivializing depictions of the female nude.

Wel worden elementen van het jaarboekje gebruikt, zoals voorspellingen, sterrenbeelden en maan- (hier: hart)gestalten. Bianca Nesselaar: Philomusus Philokalus heeft deze herkenningspunten gebruikt om er een (zijn?) liefdesavontuur aan op te hangen. De identiteit van de auteur wordt onthuld in een reactie op de 'Liefdes almanak', de bijgebonden 'Sleutel': het was de Leidse rechtenstudent Albertus van Twist (Hulst 1699 - Willemstad? vóór 1748), en zijn liefde gold Susanna Alenson. Tot een huwelijk is het echter niet gekomen. Gedichten heeft Van Twist hierna niet meer geschreven, wel een juridisch proefschrift. Daarin staat een gravure van de Leidse kunstenaar François van Bleyswyk die volgens Nesselaar dezelfde stijl heeft als de prenten in de 'Eeuwigduurende liefdes almanak'. Van Twist werd schepen te Hulst en schout en dijkgraaf te Willemstad. Hij trouwde in 1743 met zijn tweede vrouw Maria J. Duymaer. De afstammelingen gingen zich Duymaer van Twist noemen.In de 'Sleutel' op de almanak worden genoemd: de broer van Susanna Alenson, advocaat en muziekliefhebber, de theologische student Brouwer en een medeminnaar Van Diellen. Het boekje is zeer zeldzaam, wat wel eens verklaard wordt uit het feit dat de schrijver later zelf exemplaren opkocht."

        THE BIRDS OF AUSTRALIA Volume IV (Pittas, Bowerbirds, Wattlebirds, Honeyeaters, Sunbirds, Cuckoos, Tree-creepers)

      Melbourne: Hill House, 1996. First limited facsimile edition thus. Original brown-red Japanese Saifu cloth gilt, preserved in the original carton. 104 fine coloured plates with accompanying text. Endpapers with a repeating pattern of BM library stamps. One of series of remarkably exact same-size facsimile of the original in the British Library, printed by offset lithography on acid-free matt art paper and hand-bound. The Hill House series contained the only authentic full-size facsimiles of the works of John Gould - this volume is one of the original printings and now out of print. An as-new copy, outer storage box marked. Publisher's blurb thus "They are not reproductions, because no camera was used in transferring the images from the B.M.(N.H.) originals. Indeed the originals are taken by Museum security courier to the repro-house in Singapore, where they are subjected to the preparation of new plates for printing on 5 and 6 colour offset presses. The paper used is 130 gsm mat art paper. As facsimiles, the books carry faithfully every spot, mark or stain of the originals. They also carry the original Museum Department of Zoology stamps, and librarian's annotations. From behind glass, the naked eye would be unable to distinguish the original from the facsimile, so accurate is the colour printing. Also as facsimiles, they are exactly the same size as the originals (Imperial Folio: 22" x 15"). Each volume is hand sewn, cased-in and bound between 4 mm. boards covered in special Japanese Saifu cloth, gold stamped on the spine, and with the gold Crown Cipher of the British Museum (Natural History) on the front, and blind embossed on the inner margin of the front boards. The end-papers are of special wood-free heavy grade paper, printed in a generated repetitive pattern of the Museum's Library stamps. The publisher has not intruded into the authenticity of the books, leaving the publication data printed only on the very last page at the end of the book block. Each copy is hand inspected by the printer's quality control officer, individually numbered on the inside front board, hand wrapped in protective brown paper, and placed in its own crush-proof outer carton. The carton is then sealed, numbered and signed on the outside by the printer's quality control officer. Thus, no two copies are exactly the same. Although initial volumes were printed in more than 500 copies, later production runs have not exceeded 300 for world-wide sale. This has been caused by a relative shortage of quality paper, together with the intensive hand-labour involved in their production." We may be able to offer discounts on the book price for direct purchase and also for multiple purchases. We hold the full set of Birds of Australia in stock. Facsimile Edition. Hard Cover. New/No Dust Jacket. Elephant Folio. Book.

        The Emigrants [Die Ausgewanderten]

      London: Harvill Press, 1996. First Edition. Hardcover. As New/Fine. First Impression of Sebald's first book published in an English-language edition, translated from the German by Michael Hulse. 8vo: [8],237,[1]pp, profusely illustrated with black and white, unlabeled photographs (as are most of Sebald's texts) in a documentary style. Publisher's blue cloth-effect, paper-covered boards, spine stamped in gilt, illustrated dust jacket. A stunning copy, virtually pristine, tight, square and apparently unread, uncompromised in every way, save for the jacket's price-clipped front flap. Presented the Berlin Literature Prize, the Literatur Nord Prize, and the Johannes Bobrowski Medal. Sebald's narrator recounts the life stories of four characters, all of whom are German emigrants, to England and the United States. The stories touch on the themes of memory (and the compulsion to obliterate it), mourning and melancholia, trauma, and feelings of foreignness. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.
