        The Arts of Central Asia: The Pelliot Collection in the Musee Guimet.: General Editor Jacques Gies. Translated by Hero Friesen in collaboration with Roderick Whitfield.

      600 sets were issued, but only 250 copies of the English text., Paris: London Reunion des Musees Nationaux; Serindia 1996 - A superb production to match Whitfield's earlier work on the Stein Collections in the British Museum. The first two volumes are in French, the third provides a complete English translation. The Pelliot Collection of the Musee Guimet, unlike other great archaeological collections from Central Asia, was the result of a single expedition which took place between 1906 and 1909. The aims of this expedition were "to contribute to the research already undertaken by the Russians, English, Germans and Japanese on the Buddhism of these regions (Kashgaria) prior to the Islamic conquest". These volumes contain papers on The Pelliot Expedition and The Pictorial Language of Dunhuang by Jacques Gies, an Analytical Table of Pigments by Jean-Paul Rioux, and The Silks of Dunhuang by Krishna Riboud, as well as a full compliment of illustrations of the objects collected at Dunhuang, Tumshuq, Kucha and elsewhere, with detailed descriptions. This set is very heavy - shipping quoted on request. Fine set in original cloth as issued. First edition Two volumes, folio, pp.372, 446, 767 illustrations, 481 in colour, 7 plans, with English translation in 4to, pp.235.

        Turin-Mailänder-Stundenbuch. - Inv. No. 47; Museo Civico d'Arte Antica, Turin.

      Luzern, Faksimile Verlag, 1995-1996. - 2 Bde. (Faksimile u. Kommentar) in Orig.Plexiglass-Kassette. 28x20 cm. Faksimile: 252 S. mit 28 ganzseitige, mit Gold und Rankenschmuck verzierte Miniaturseiten und zahlreichen Initialen. OSamt mit Blindprägung u. Goldmedaillon auf Deckel. Das Kapital handumstochen. Vollgoldschnitt; Kommentarband in OSamt mit Rückenetikett. In der Original-Plexiglass-Kassette. Eines von 980 num. Exemplaren. - Aus dem Verlagsprospekt: "Das Turin-Mailänder Stundenbuch wurde in einem Zeitraum von 70 Jahren geschaffen. Ab 1380 waren es die höchsten Adeligen jener Zeit und ihre Hofmaler, die sich der Handschrift annahmen. Das Werk gab der Herzog von Berry in Auftrag, vermutlich noch vor der Wende zum 15. Jahrhundert. Für die erste Malkampagne war der Meister des Paraments verantwortlich. Er entwarf die Anordnung der Seiten, machte grundlegende Vorzeichnungen und vollendete selbst mehrere der Hauptminiaturen. 1405 veranlaßte der Herzog eine weitere Kampagne unter der Leitung des Meisters Johannes' des Täufers. Die Handschrift war allerdings beim Tod des Herzogs von Berry im Jahre 1416 noch unvollendet und wurde in den Jahren danach in zwei Teile aufgeteilt. Das eigentliche Stundenbuch, die Très Belles Heures de Notre-Dame, gelangte in den Besitz von Robinet d'Estampes; der zweite Teil bestand aus den 1904 verbrannten Heures de Turin, deren Überreste, nur vier Blätter, heute im Louvre aufbewahrt werden und schließlich aus dem Meßbuch, dem Turin-Mailänder Stundenbuch.Das im 15. Jahrhundert noch nicht getrennte Werk ging als Erbe an den Grafen Johann von Holland. Dieser beauftragte um 1424 den jungen Jan van Eyck, die Handschrift weiter auszumalen. Auch diesmal wurde sie nicht vollendet. Jan van Eyck und mit ihm die Handschrift kamen dann an den Hof Philipps von Burgund, wo der Meister eine zweite Kampagne zur Vollendung der Handschrift einleitete, die aber durch seinen Tod 1441 unterbrochen wurde. Wohl um dem Künstler ein Denkmal zu setzen, ließ Philipp von Burgund das Gebet- und Meßbuch durch einen weiteren flämischen Maler, der in der Tradition van Eycks stand, vollenden.Eine weitere Aufteilung erfolgte vermutlich im 16. Jahrhundert. Das Turin-Mailänder Stundenbuch gelangte über die Grafen von Aglié zu den Fürsten von Trivulzio, die sie 1935 dem Museo Civico in Turin überließen." Kommentar von: James H. Marrow, Princeton University, New Jersey, Dr. Silvana Pettenati, Direktorin des Museo Civico d'Arte Antica Torino, und Prof. Dr. Anne H. Buren, Tufts University, Boston, Massachusetts. Zusätzlich enthält der Kommentarband sämtliche Miniaturen der ursprünglichen Monumentalhandschrift in einem Schwarzweiß-Bildteil mit ausführlichen Bildbeschreibungen. Dabei: Beiheft zum Turin-Mailänder Stundenbuch, Luzern 1994, 51 S. Vorsatz mit Stempel und handschr. Namenzug des Vorbesitzers, sonst tadellose Erhaltung.

Magnifique suite de 10 images, les 5 gravures se dédoublant, enluminées à la main et concrètement inspirée du roman de Boris Vian. On y reconnaîtra La foire aux vieux, le psychiatre Jacquemort en pleine action thérapeutérotique, Joël, Noël et Citroën, etc.Cet ensemble remarquable, prolongeant la tradition de l'imagerie russe populaire, ferait le bonheur d'un éditeur vianophile en mal de projets. L'une des séries de ces planches fut divisées, une seconde revint à l'artiste pas triste (un vrai joyeux je peux vous l'assurer, jusque dans l'adversité je l'ai toujours vu rigoler) qui en a également offert, il n'en existe à priori plus que trois complètes dont la mienne, que bien sûr je conserve.Avec un texte manuscrit inédit signé de votre serviteur, autographié de sa main sur feuillet liminaire.Précisons enfin que si Iouri Chtapakov ressemble furieusement à Yuri Shtapakov, c'est qu'il ne s'agit évidemment que d'une seule et même personne; les variantes orthographiques correspondent à des époques et des versions linguistiques différentes, l'une française, l'autre anglaise.Dernier exemplaire.

        ARMS TRADE.

      Tempe, Arizona:: Cabbagehead Press,, 1996.. Edition of 150. 8 x 10" closed (folded); 8 x 20" single sheet extended. Handmade paper from shredded paper currency with rag pulp including clothing from the victims named. Handset types used include Stymie, Clarendon, Baskerville, and Neuland. Metal relief engravings and woodcuts created for the images and printed by John Risseeuw at his Cabbagehead Press in Tempe, Arizona. Signed and numbered by the artist. Risseeuw created a piece about the world arms trade, printed on paper made from clothing of victims of armed conflict and recycled currency from the top 10 arms-exporting nations. John Risseeuw, Content-Specific Handmade Paper in Prints and Artist Books: "I started with an appropriate quote about arms sales, then printed a list of the top ten arms exporting nations between 1990 and 1994. The U.S. was (and is to this day), to my regret, the top exporter by far. I began a list of arms sold as well as some woodcut and engraved images. Inside the piece, the facts continue about the value of arms sold, the list of arms, and more quotes and images. Included within the page are stories of victims of armed conflict, from South Africa, Iraq, and elsewhere. Finally, at the bottom, the colophon tells you that the paper you are holding was made from the paper currency of the top ten arms exporting nations (U.S., Russia, Germany, UK, France, China, The Netherlands, Italy, Czech Republic, and Switzerland) mixed with clothing from the victims of armed conflict named above. For example, a papermaker friend in South Africa knew a woman whose sister had been murdered by the Security Police in 1985. She sent me a cotton skirt once belonging to her sister and it was pulped for this paper. A colleague at my university in the mathematics department is an Iraqi Kurd, who was chased out of northern Iraq with the other people of his family and village when the Iraqi army began shelling it. The paper contains clothing from people killed in that action sent from relatives who are still in exile in southern Turkey. "Repeatedly, I have found that the impact of this piece is increased when people read about, or are told, the content of the paper. Some, in shock, have dropped it, unable to bear the weight of the connection linking arms, money, and death. It is so simple, making the paper from these materials, yet the piece becomes a conceptual whole that is much more powerful. It has a wholeness like that of the farm keepsake - a satisfying unity and rightness - making the art into an object for deeper and further consideration, rather than merely a representation of an idea. The paper is not merely a substrate holding representative marks; it becomes something greater. A friend calls this Symbolic Paper, but I think it may be more than that.

        A FINE BALANCE

      London and Boston: Faber and Faber, 1996. FIRST EDITION. This special presentation binding displays one of the major innovations developed by Philip Smith: the "maril onlay," a concentrated arrangement of a great many extremely small multicolored bits of scrap leather in an embedded picture. This same design feature has been used on a large number of Smith bindings, including some of his most famous works. The binding notes tipped in here describe the artisan's process in great detail, even explaining how a printing mistake necessitated the open back design, and also record the exhibitions at the British Library and the Bibliotheca Wittockiana where this work was displayed, and the issue of the "New Bookbinder" (vol. 17, 1997) in which it was featured. As a fellow of the Designer Bookbinders, Smith was regularly approached to create bindings for finalists for the Booker Prize, an annual tradition. "A Fine Balance" tells the story of the impact of the 1975-77 Indian political crisis known as "The Emergency" on two tailors, a widow, and an engineer whose lives are unexpectedly entwined. In addition to being shortlisted for the Booker Prize, it earned Indian-Canadian author Rohinton Mistry the prestigious Giller Prize in his adopted country. Even more lucratively for the author, it was selected for Oprah's Book Club in 2001.. 240 x 155 mm. (9 3/8 x 6 1/8"). 5 p.l., 614 pp. FIRST EDITION. DRAMATIC SKY BLUE AND BROWN CRUSHED MOROCCO WITH MULTI-COLOR "MARIL" ONLAY BY PHILIP SMITH (signed in ink and dated October 1996 on rear pastedown), covers with complex maril inlays forming an impressionistic mountain range and river separating the light blue morocco "sky" above and the brown morocco "earth" below, the latter onlaid with a number of rounded black spots like boulders, eight brightly colored maril squares representing squares of the quilt described in the text scattered across the landscape; two black and one blue and black goatskin yokes across the spine, with painted stitching and paper quires showing through the openings between yokes, title blind-stamped on yoke at head, orange endpapers, head and fore edges painted and waxed, the head edge with a brightly colored quilt on a blue background, the fore edge with a continuation of the mountain design from the covers. Original pictorial dust jacket bound in. Booker Prize finalist presentation plate tipped onto the bound-in dust jacket spine. Binder's extensive notes tipped onto rear flyleaf. In mint condition. This special presentation binding displays one of the major innovations developed by Philip Smith: the "maril onlay," a concentrated arrangement of a great many extremely small multicolored bits of scrap leather in an embedded picture. This same design feature has been used on a large number of Smith bindings, including some of his most famous works.
