        Jamali: mystical experience. Limited edition with original drawing on cork

      New York: Rizzoli, with Art & Peace, Inc., 1997 72 color plates printed one side with captions on facing pages. 189 pp. Black cloth with gilt lettering, in dustjacket. 28.5 x 29 cm. This is not a conventional limited edition issued by the publisher, but rather a copy of the trade edition that the artist has improved with a fine original drawing in brown and black ink on a thin sheet of cork; this version is housed in a cork slipcase decorated in gilt. There is no limitation notice, but the number of copies must be very small. The unique drawing is sandwiched between two leaves of the endpaper stock with a protective sheet of drafting vellum and inserted between the final text leaf and the normal endpaper. The five sections of plates are: "Fresco tempera1977-1995"; "Oils on linen 1995-1996"; Industrial paints on canvas 1983-1985"; Pigments on prepared surface 1976-1994"; and "Pigmentation on cork 1993-1996." The imagery derives from traditional painting of India infused with a great feeling for surface and material. The book is pristine and is priced well below the $1,000 the artist asks for similar copies on his website. ISBN 0-9656610-0-8 **Free domestic shipping with direct order.

        Tomorrow Never Dies

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1997., 1997. FIRST EDITION, EARLIEST ISSUE TITLE PAGE with four scriptwriters listed. Hardcover in jacket. A fine copy. This is a rare opportunity to obtain an exceptionally scarce variant; at the time of printing the sheets it was undecided which version of the screenplay would be selected and in order to cover this fact Hodder's initial sheets credit four writers (the same decision was taken over the simultaneous paperback sheets). Once Bruce Fierstein was confirmed as the sole screenwriter the corrected title pages were printed and as such account for the majority of first impression copies [Gilbert]. This variant also has a perfect pastedown- many copies with the single writer credit feature a production crease or buckle to the inside front cover. A modern James Bond rarity; I cannot find another example for sale at this time, and when presented with my personal copy for inscription author Raymond Benson added the note 'Wow. I have never seen one of these'. Hubin; Crime Fiction IV. Gilbert, Jon; Ian Fleming: The Bibliography, page 613.

        Crossfire Hurricane

      UK, Genesis Publications. 1997, 1997. LIMITED EDITION, SIGNED by Photographer Bob Gruen. Folio, bound in a superb three-colour silk-screened fabric cover, featuring Mick Jagger on the front board and Keith Richards on the back, with a four-colour screen printed slip case featuring the band. Crossfire Hurricane is a remarkable collection of photographs capturing twenty-five years of The Rolling Stones in America and contains over 350 shots, many in full colour and some previously unpublished. Famous rock photographer Bob Gruen has worked with many successful musicians, but has remained ever faithful to the group that first captured his heart. From 1972 he has photographed The Stones, documenting the band's touring career and also their solo appearances, both official and impromptu, and alongside other rock'n'roll legends such as John Lennon, Bob Dylan and Chuck Berry. The result is a breathtaking look at their impact on America as one of the most exciting live bands in the history of rock'n'roll. A superb production, and a single edition limited to 1750 copies long since sold out. Fine copy, number 1056.

        RUBY & SAPPHIRE

      Rwh Pub, US 1997 - Ruby & Sapphire is a journey into one of mankind's most fascinating subjects. It is out of print and has been sold for up to 2000 USD. A technical work that elicits anything other than yawns is always a scarce item. But Ruby & Sapphire is just such a book--a rare combination of fact and fun, the pertinent and the peculiar. Open Ruby & Sapphire and you step into a secret world where, with each page turned, a new adventure awaits. Journey to Burma's Mogok Stone Tract, where pigeon's blood rubies are pried from both soil and central government control. Marvel over India's maharajahs, the world's greatest gem collectors, for whom no price was too great. Explore the legendary Valley of Serpents, into which pieces of meat were cast to trap rubies. And ascend to the lofty snows of Kashmir, home of storied blue-velvet sapphires. These are but a few of the amazing and colorful tales within. But Ruby & Sapphire is also much more. The product of over 15 years of firsthand experience, it covers every facet of the subject from A-Z. Sources, prices, quality analysis, synthetics and treatments, everything is here, a virtual encyclopedia of the subject. Ruby & Sapphire highlights: Fully illustrated. Over 350 full-color photos, including many published for the first time. Extensive price tables covering rubies and sapphires from around the globe. Exhaustive auction descriptions and sale prices make this an invaluable research tool. World sources from A to Z--over 50 countries. Tricks of the trade--learn how to avoid being taken advantage of in buying and selling. More than 2400 references--the most complete bibliography ever assembled. How to spot synthetic and treated gems. Drawings, maps and dozens of rare black-and-white photos take you direct to the source. From the Inside Flap: If you purchase just a single book on precious stones or minerals, it should be Ruby & Sapphire, which is nothing less than a tour-de-force of gemological scholarship. Whether you are a jeweler, gemologist or simply a lover of gems, this book will repay its cost many times over. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Karen Bronze Drums of Burma: Types, Iconography, Manufacture and Use

      Dulles, Virginia, U.S.A.: Brill Academic Pub 1997 - 235 pp. + 39 plates, illustrations, bibliography, index. This book defines the development of the Karen Bronze Drums (Heger Type III) during the past 800 years, as the continuation, by a hill-tribe group, of the earlier "Dong Son" tradition. Its chronological development is traced through seven stages by applying a method of intensive motivic analysis to data collected from 370 drums. Four new subtypes are defined and their interrelationships are demonstrated by use of tables, figures and plates. The meaning of these motivic changes, together with early accounts of Karen culture, are used to establish that the drums were symbolically a "magic pond" that the Karen ritually manipulated to assure prosperity.

        Homage to Trees

      Minneapolis, MN:: fernwerks press,, 1997.. Edition of 50. Comprised of five letterpress books, each 3 x 4.125" housed on or within a box measuring 10 x 13.5". The text pages of each book were printed on a sheet of Zerkall Nideggan paper which was then cut into two strips, folded into an accordion booklet, and the one end of each glued together. The ends of this booklet are then slipped into a non-adhesive cover comprised of two boards and five sheets of paper. The type was set in 11 pt. and 14 pt. Bembo, 12 pt. Narrow Bembo Condensed Italic, with ornaments along the top of each page. Type composition by Michael Bixler. Printed on a Vandercook #219 Press at Minnesota Center for Book Arts. Wendy Fernstrum: "'Homage to Trees' is an artist book revealing unusual relationships between humans and trees. Trees are sacred. They are more than just resources for physical comfort or aesthetic beauty. In this series of books I describe rituals and traditions in which people approach trees for metaphysical gifts such as wisdom, transformation, health, and fertility…. "Each book references many examples of specific relationships between humans and trees. In the first book, the reader learns about the healing properties of trees. In the second book, the reader finds information about trees as cosmological symbols and links between metaphysical planes in many different religions. The third book describes cultures which revered trees in fertility rites. The fourth book talks about cultures which regarded trees as sources of wisdom. And in the fifth book, the reader learns how trees reveal the secrets of transformation. "'Homage to Trees' encourages readers to explore a holistic and rewarding relationship with trees….As an artist who relies greatly upon paper to translate concepts into form, I am well aware of the fact that we cannot live without consuming resources. We can, however, learn to use our resources wisely. Part of that knowledge is based on cultivating a respectful relationship with nature and, specifically, with trees. This project is my homage to trees, thanking them for all they provide both physically and spiritually, and my vehicle for sharing what I have begun to learn by listening to trees." Added note from Fernstrum: "Special thanks to Nathaniel Altman, whose book 'Sacred Trees' was an invaluable source of information and inspiration.

        Trinity

      Fiddletown, California:: Katherine Venturelli,, 1997.. One-of-a-Kind. 8 x 6" closed, extends to 16"; 3 panels.Triptych. Pages: etched copper plates hinged together with copper rivets and leather. Housed in wood house-shaped box (9.5 x 8 x 2.25"), which has two components: a base (3.5 x 8") for closed book to slip into; a house (8.5 x 7.5"), which slips over book with triangular window through which the title shows. From Out West: The Artist's Book in California: "This is a case where 'architecture' is a particularly appropriate term for discussing the structure of a book. Katherine Venturelli has been working for several years now on a series of house-shaped books in house-shaped boxes, the form of which serve to reinforce her explorations of universal symbology. Her use of copper as a material, indigenous to the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains where she lives, has increased in recent years, some books employing copper pages with text and images etched onto the surface." Katherine Venturelli: "We communicate on personal, cultural, and spiritual levels with messages which manifest as symbols. My intent is to look at the meanings of these varied communications. I found that the small, intimate book format relates well in this exploration. "Trinity is a collaboration with my spouse, Herb Boxhorn, a musician. We were invited to participate in an exhibition entitled Side by Side. The invitation requested that two creative professionals who live together create an artwork together. We decided the house shaped book was perfect for us as we have been involved with the continual change of our own home in Fiddletown. The piece is the result of working closely together and discovering frictions previously unknown to us. Images and symbols from my on-going work fused with the theme of Herb's text ?- body, mind and spirit.
