        Collection of Artist's Books and Keepsakes

      [New York: Suzart / Susan Rotolo, ca.1996-2008]. First Edition. Attractive group of items by Rotolo, an American artist and the girlfriend of Bob Dylan from 1961-1964, when they were important figures in the folk music and bohemian scene in Greenwich Village. As an artist, she specialized in artist's books and taught at the Parsons School of Design in New York City. In addition to creating book-like objects incorporating found art, Rotolo remained involved in political activism throughout her later life until her death from lung cancer in 2011. We find no copies of these artist's books for sale in the trade (or indeed, any of her artist's books, as of April, 2015), and none found in OCLC. Small collection of seven (7) artist's books and keepsakes created by Suze Rotolo, from the collection of New York hipster impresario Israel "Izzy" Young, proprietor of the Folklore Center on Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village, an important nexus for Lower East Side bohemia throughout the late 1950s and 1960s. All books and keepsakes Fine; two original envelopes with overall wear and creasing - Very Good. The collection consists of the following: [BOOKS] Slinky Book. [New York]: Suzart, 1996.

In original envelope, appropriated from a package of DR guitar strings. [BOOKS] Definitions. N.p.: Susan Rotolo, 2005. This copy marked "AP/B" (Artist's Proof / B), outside a regular edition of 110 copies. Signed by Rotolo on verso in brown ink; in original stamped and hand-written envelope. [KEEPSAKES] Old Battles.

        "Gulliveriana".

      1996Dessin sur papier à l'encre noire et au feutre N°2, 1996, 23.5 x 49.5 cm., signé et titré en haut à droite, référence de la page en bas à gauche, encadré. Les aventures de Gulliver, revisitées par Milo Manara, ça donne Gulliveriana... Une bande-dessinée savoureuse où se mêle érotisme et aventure. Gulliveriana est une jeune femme blonde et délurée, Milo Manara trouve son inspiration et reprend de façon très libre, Le Voyage de Gulliver de Jonathan Swift. Il détourne l'histoire de façon coquine et voluptueuse. L'artiste nous ouvre la porte de mondes fantastiques, peuplés de nains, de géants badins, de femmes légères. Milo Manara montre dans cet album qu'il est un maître incontesté de la bande dessinée érotique.En deux tableaux, une scène représente deux jeunes-femmes sexy sur un bateau. La jeune-femme brune est allongée sur un lit. Elle porte un déshabillé et adopte une attitude lascive et sensuelle. Elle s'adresse à son amie, à la longue chevelure blonde. Le second tableau présente cette dernière descendant une échelle. Strip original de la scène n°2 page 64 . Joint l'édition originale. Né en 1945, en Italie, Milo Manara est un auteur de bandes dessinées reconnu. Ses premières planches professionnelles, des récits érotiques, datent de 1968 puis il publie Genius, pour les éditions Vanio. En 1976, Le Singe, son premier récit ambitieux, paraît dans Alter-Linus puis dans Charlie Mensuel. En 1983, sa carrière prend une nouvelle direction avec Le Déclic qui fait instantanément de lui un des maîtres de la bande dessinée érotique. En 1987, Hugo Pratt devient son scénariste pour "Un été indien", expérience qu'ils rééditeront sept ans plus tard avec "El Gaucho". Aujourd'hui, Milo Manara continue une production régulière d'histoires érotiques aux éditions Casterman, mais il participe également à des projets plus originaux comme l'illustration de portfolios divers ou comme un nouveau projet avec le scénariste Alexandro Jodorowsky.

        Submarine Dream

      Sole UK Printing published by the Camberwell Press in 1996. 37.5 cm square. The BOOK is in Fine condition. This is number 131 from a limitation of just 225 books. The book is Signed and Numbered by Brian Webb. The series of coloured lithographs from the original edition of Submarine Dream was stochastically screened from original prints and printed on Canaletto paper at the Camberwell Press. The cover design is based on a design by Tirzah Ravilious. At the outbreak of WWII,Eric Ravilious became an official war artist along with Edward Bawden and John Nash. During the summer of 1940 he painted submarine operations at HMS Dolphin in Hampshire. Over the following months he produced a series of lithographs based on his submarine drawings which were printed in a small edition at Cowells of Ipswich, his first choice, the Curwen Press, having been bombed. Ravilious went on to further assignments. On his last, a flight over Iceland in 1942, he was reported missing, presumed dead. He was 39 years of age. This is the first time that these lithographs have been stochastically reproduced from the original prints. They are a wonderful evocation of submarine life. A very high quality production and extremely scarce. Ashtonrarebooks welcomes direct contact. More images availble on request.

Pemell was a general practioner living at Cranbrook in Kent; he was buried only 5 years after the pubication of his book.? Robert Pemell (d. 1653), physician. ODNB ?... He was probably the Robert Pemel who obtained an archiepiscopal licence to practise medicine about 1632. He may have shared in the puritan tendency of Cranbrook: his published works were all printed for the London theological bookseller Philemon Stephens, and produced in the early 1650s, at a time when publication in both the learned languages and the vernacular greatly increased. Pemell's last work, on the diseases of children, was only the second monograph on the subject in English, the first being that of Thomas Phaer a hundred years earlier. General advice books directed at women, parents, or householders were, however, already a well-established genre. At various points Pemell's book on children directs the reader to fuller discussions contained in his earlier publications. Pemell's publications were all in the vernacular, but showed some knowledge of Latin, and were derived from classical and contemporary learned authors, with a few references to his own experience ... Pemell's productivity continued with Tractatus de simplicium medicamentorum facultatibus. A treatise of the nature ? of such simples as are most frequently used (1652). This was helpfully structured for ?the vulgar capacity? and young practitioners. A second part, Tractatus de facultatibus simplicium, followed in 1653. His final work, on children, he advertised as fulfilling his promise to follow up the Tractatus, but in ?more hast?, because ?I see my glasse runs apace?: De morbis puerorum, or, A treatise of the diseases of children ? very useful for all such as are housekeepers (1653) ...?

        Essays on Game Theory.

      Northampton, MA: Edward Elgar Publishing, 1996. First edition. Octavo, original boards. Signed by John Nash on the title page. In fine condition, issued without a dust jacket. When John Nash was awarded the Nobel prize in economics in 1994, many people were surprised to learn that he was alive and well. Since then, Sylvia Nasar's celebrated biography A Beautiful Mind, has revealed the man. The Essential John Nash reveals his work--in his own words. This book presents, for the first time, the full range of Nash's diverse contributions not only to game theory, for which he received the Nobel, but to pure mathematics--from Riemannian geometry and partial differential equations--in which he commands even greater acclaim among academics. Included are nine of Nash's most influential papers, most of them written over the decade beginning in 1949. "Why are we so intrigued by the story of John Nash? We are curious to understand a person who proves theorems we are unable to fathom. We imagine the voices from another world he has heard. We ask where he was for 30 years during which he walked among us but wasn't here. We are frightened and we are attracted by this combination of 'crazy' and 'genius', an invitation for visiting the edge of our own minds." (Ariel Rubinstein)

        Altar Book for Górecki

      Middletown, CT: Robin Price, 1996. Shaw, Paul. Quarto-sized wooden triptych hinged with vellum strips. With original Polish text calligraphed by Paul Shaw. Titling and the English translation are letterpress printed by Robin Price in Guild Samson uncial and Perpetua. This work is Price's response to Górecki's Symphony No. 3, which is also known as the Symphony of Sorrowful Songs. In it, the composer used three texts for each of the movements: a fifteenth-century Lamentation of the Virgin Mary to her Son on the cross; a short prayer written by an eighteen-year-old girl facing death in a Gestapo prison in Poland; and a nineteenth-century Polish folk song that concerns a mother's mourning for her son lost in battle. At the time, Price was revisiting her Polish ancestery, and so her work, according to her recent catalogue raisonne, became for her "a reflection on the known and the unknown, on presence and loss." She chose the image of the phoenix to embody the idea of "loss and the mitigation of pain through the strength of the spririt" and she incorporated images from a seventeenth-century ornithological work by Francis Willughby, together with woodcuts by Keiji Shinohara depicting flames. The whole structure is housed in a cherry box with beveled lid. An imaginitive and deeply personal artist's book. (Witthus 55).
