Als Kind von Holocaustüberlebenden thematisiert Lustig auch das Schicksal des jüdischen Volkes.

        The Subtle Knife

      Scholastic Press, London 1997 - A very fine signed first edition, first impression, first printing of the second novel in Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy. The true first edition with a complete number line.This unread, sharp, bright 341 page book is bound in green cloth with a golden knife across the cover and golden titles on the spine. The book has no bumping, marking or writing apart from Philip Pullman's signature. The very fine dust jacket is not price clipped. The film of the Golden Compass, the American title for Northern Lights, the first volume in the trilogy was released at Christmas 2007 and the film production of The Subtle Knife is underway. The production company New Line Cinema scored a huge success with the Lord of the Rings film trilogy and His Dark Materials is expected to follow suit. The book is signed on the title page by Philip Pullman with his special dedication to the heroine "To Lyra" - to customise this copy of a very special book. The trilogy is expected to be an undoubted and enduring children's classic. Amanda Craig in The Times (14th July 2007) reckons His Dark Materials is one of the most likely contenders to emulate the success of J K Rowling's Harry Potter, but with "a towering imagination and a prose style that knocks spots off Rowling". Her bottom line is "sheer genius, it will be read in a 100 years time".Other signed copies of Philip Pullman's work are available from Burren Books, including Northern Lights and The Amber Spyglass, completing the Northern Lights trilogy. A photo of Philip Pullman at the book signing is also available. Clear removable film protects the dustwrapper. Shipped by Royal Mail Special Delivery or Airsure with Insurance paid at no additional cost to Abebooks standard shippping rate. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Blind Man's Bluff.

      Vincent FitzGerald & Co., New York 1997 - One of 50 copies, all on Fabriano Artistico paper, each signed by the artist on the colophon. Page size: 4-7/8 inches x 4-7/8 inches; 31 individual leaves (cards) including "Joker" and 2 "Wild Cards," titlepage, and colophon. Bound: housed in red cloth clamshell box by BookLab with title printed in silver gilt on front cover, new. The calligraphy is by Jerry Kelly who has printed it letterpress at Kelly / Winterton Press. There are 59 etchings of body parts - some hand watercolored - by Susan Weil from her drawings that were blind-drawn on copper, a technique that Weil has used for more than 50 years. The double-sided cards can be shuffled and dealt in any pattern, which contributes to the humorous possibilities in the title pun. Further, the cards can be re-arranged by simply turning them over, creating a new figure. The simple line etchings become incredibly complicated upon closer inspection. Playful and sly, touching and always imaginative, Ms. Weil gives us her unique view of the human condition, touching on varieties of emotions and stages of life, with an artist's eye. See an Image.

        Mason & Dixon

      Henry Holt, New York 1997 - First edition, publisher's dummy with provisional dustwrapper art. Fine in fine dustwrapper affixed to the pastedowns. Unstamped full cloth with unprinted text block that bulks approximately the same as the finished book with photocopied jacket art and printed acetate overjacket. Pynchon's editor Ray Roberts's copy, with his book label on the front pastedown. Note on Roberts's printed card stating "salesman's dummy with provisional jacket art." Roberts was an influential editor with Viking, Henry Holt, and then Little, Brown, and he worked closely with John Fowles, Martha Grimes, Thomas Pynchon, and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. He began editing Pynchon when the latter went to Little, Brown, starting with his book *Slow Learner*. Possibly unique. See this book in 3D on our site. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
