        Die Veredelung von Bienen [Gebundene Ausgabe] von Eigil Holm (Autor)

      Ehrenwirth 1997 1997 Dieses Buch beschreibt, wie die Erkenntnisse der Genetik auf die Zucht der Honigbiene angewendet werden können. Es schließt die Lücke zwischen der Zucht von Haustieren und kultivierten Pflanzen auf der einen und der Zucht der Honigbiene auf der anderen Seite. Durch Beispiele wird deutlich gezeigt, wie die theoretische Genetik als Werkzeug vom praktischen Königinnenzüchter zur Verbesserung des Bienenvolkes angewandt werden kann. Die Grundlage dieses Buches bildet ein Kongreß, der vom Dänischen Imkerbund organisiert wurde. Hier trafen sich dänische und schwedische Genetiker und Königinnenzüchter, um sich über den Stand ihrer Erkenntnisse auszutauschen. Beeinflußt von der Buckfast - Imkerei des Bruder Adam, spiegelt dieses Buch den aktuellen Stand der skandinavischen Königinnenzuchtpraxis.Dr. Egil Holm ist Biologe und Imker. Er hat ein Lehrbuch für Bienenzucht geschrieben, das vom Dänischen Imkerbund empfohlen wird. Außerdem hat er ein Buch über künstliche Besamung in Dänisch und Englisch sowie mehrere Bücher über Bestäubungsmethoden veröffentlicht. Eigil Holm beschreibt die praktischen Arbeiten der Königinnenzucht, Vorbereitungen, Pflegevölker, Starter, Verschulen der Königinnen und Beschickung der Belegstellen.Als weiteren Teil werden die Kriterien für die Auslese und deren Bewertung sowie die theoretischen Grundlagen der Vererbung und die Bedeutung für die Zucht beschrieben.Gute Grundlagen einfach zu lesen. Es gibt nur wenige Bienenbücher, die es verdienen als "Praxisbuch" angesehen zu werden. Eines davon wird dieser Aussage mit ziemlicher Sicherheit gerecht: Eigil Holm "Die Veredelung von Bienen". Der Autor dieses zuerst in Dänemark erschienenen Buches führt den an der Veredelung seiner Bienen interessierten Imker zunächst ein in die Voraussetzungen, sowohl von der praktischen wie von der theoretischen Seite. Neben den erforderlichen Gerätschaften sind auch Handfertigkeiten einzuüben und vor allem ein genauer zeitlicher Arbeitsplan festzulegen und einzuhalten. Das hier vorgestellte Buch ist eine genaue Zusammenfassung all dieser Erfordernisse und der theoretischen Grundlagen, es spart aber auch nicht an praktischen Tips, nicht nur vom Autor selbst, sondern auch von weiteren erfahrenen Königinnenzüchtern in Dänemark. Wer Interesse an diesem "Zuchtbuch" hat, sollte sich beeilen, denn es gibt nur noch Restbestände von diesem ganz hervorragend geschriebenen Buch de

        Gifts of the Leaves with Prints from the Ova Series by Julia Ferrari.

      Trois Fontaines [Golgonooza Letter Foundry], Ashuelot 1997 - One of 26 lettered "de tete" copies from a total issue of 109 (26 lettered copies, 80 numbered copies, 3 Artist's Proof copies), all on Arches paper, each signed and numbered or lettered by the author and type designer, punch cutter and printer, Dan Carr, and the artist, Julia Ferrari. As an example of contemporary book arts, this may well be unique, I can think of no other book of contemporary verse where the author / printer has designed and cut a unique type face for his book. The lettered copy has a unique colored monotype on Richard de Bas paper as the frontispiece of the book, a copper strike from the hand cut punches bound into the custom-made clamshell box housing the book, and four etchings. Page size: 12-1/2 inches x 9-1/4 inches; 74pp. Bound by Julia Ferrari: hand-made pastepaper over boards housed in black cloth clamshell box with copper strike from the hand cut punches inlaid into inside front panel of box, pastepaper spine label, new. _ Dan Carr created a type face called Regulus after the star rising through the trees when the first alphabet was completed for his verse. In the Preface he states he views "the poems are collected as an alphabet." The collections of verse, he goes on, are about "transformation found in the seasons of a year.my poems revealed a kind of stations of the soul, the cycle of the seasons of frost and sun." The theme of transformation that occurs in nature and that constancy of change are perfectly interpreted in words and image. See an Image. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

The 80 numbered copies have one etching and three duotone reproductions by Julia Ferrari, who has also written an "Artist Afterword" and designed the beautiful shaped colophon. As an example of contemporary book arts, this may well be unique, I can think of no other book of contemporary verse where the author / printer has designed and cut a unique type face for his book.

All the numbered edition copies correspond to one season, depending on the frontispiece etching. That is, there are four variations of the book in the numbered edition with the different pastepapers used in the binding keyed to the original frontispiece etching.& Dan Carr created a type face called Regulus after the star rising through the trees when the first alphabet was completed for his verse.

        SILENT BOOK - Rare Pristine Copy of The First And Only Edition

      Sao Paulo, Brasil: Cosac & Naify, 1997 - 1st Printing. 98 pages. Published in 1997. Artist Book. One of the greatest photography books of the 20th century. The first and only edition. Published in a very small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. The book is now very rare. A brilliant production by Miguel Rio Branco and Jean-Yves Cousseau: Small-size volume format in square shape. Pictorial hard boards with red titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Miguel Rio Branco. There is no text. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Italy to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents some of the artist/photographer's most stunning images, all of them in "bleed" format. Miguel Rio Branco's work has been praised (and criticized) for the way it vividly depicts the quiet anguish, carnal sensuality, and explosive violence of Latin America. It is the Latin spirit (rather than the continent itself) that interests him, and he has photographed in Europe to capture this "Latinity". His sequencing of images has also been called "musical"; it is no accident that many of his books include a CD that is meant to be listened to while one views the images. "Silent Book" is the outstanding exception, his tribute to the deafening silence at the heart of his dissonant images. The violence depicted is ritualistic rather than actual (many of the photographs were taken in a boxing gym and at a bullfight) and its true purpose is not, "as some suggest, to incite violence outside, but to mitigate or break the cycle" (Martin Parr and Gerry Badger). A contributing member of Magnum, it is hard to think of him as a documentary photographer. Indeed, his work is about the fundamentally subjective, non-documentary character of reality. The robust and simmering physicality of his images is the work of an artist/photographer who shows the underbelly of Roman Catholicism in all of its "Latinity, an extreme lyricism, contrasting affectivity and violence" (Adolfo Montejo). "My work has a lot to do with skin, for that is the surface connecting us to the world, in pleasure as much as in pain. Skin is a dialogue between outside and inside, a separation that is also a connection" (Miguel Rio Branco). A book of tremendous power and beauty, it pulsates with life and makes most other photography books look lifeless. An absolute "must-have" title for Miguel Rio Branco and photography book collectors. This title is a great photography book. This is one of very few copies still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Copies turn up occasionally online but have major flaws. A rare copy thus. 75 color plates. Miguel Rio Branco's "Silent Book" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest living artist/photographers. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER MIGUEL RIO BRANCO TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 8586374210. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Pomegranate. Mezzotints by Judith Rothchild.

      Editions de l'eau, [Reynes 1997 - One of 50 copies all on Hahnemuhle paper, each numbered and signed by Fainlight and Rothchild on the colophon: 14 deluxe copies with an original drawing and page of manuscript, 28 regular copies (this copy), 8 hors commerce. In addition, there were 40 additional copies of the mezzotints editioned. Page size: 15-1/2" x 10-1/2". Bound: loose in original wrappers, housed in red publisher's slipcase, paper over boards. New. With mezzotints printed by the artist, Judith Rothchild, the text was printed by Albert Woda, the publisher, who also designed the layout. This is Judith Rothchild's first livre d'artiste. Noted poet Ruth Fainlight has contributed a moving poem using the imagery of pomegranates and its association with the Greek myth of Persephone and Demeter to pose questions about the life process, aging, revisiting our youth, death and rebirth. Ms. Rothchild's pomegranates are rich and warm, almost supernaturally lit images -- always in pairs -- exposing its complicated fruit. The artist usually works in the pastel medium, using vibrant strong colors, usually still lifes, bringing life to inanimate objects with magical light. Encouraged by master engraver, Albert Woda, to work in mezzotints, Ms. Rothchild has created six haunting images to perfectly complement Ms. Fainlight's poem. See illustration.7 See an Image.

A beautiful First US Edition/First Printing in As New/As New condition, SIGNED and DATED by AUTHOR Gabriel García Márquez on title page; This non-fiction account of the orchestrated kidnappings of ten Colombian journalists by the Medellin drug cartel in 1990 reads more like the dreamy fiction of Nobel Prize winning author Gabriel García Márquez than any non-fiction. Márquez began his book as the story of only one of the kidnapped journalists but early on recognized the need to expand his work to include all the others. Behind the demands of powerful cartel leader Pablo Escobar was protection from extradition to the US for drug trafficking .

        Encyclopedia of Indo - European Culture [Hardcover] von James Mallory (Herausgeber), D. Q. Adams (Herausgeber)

      Fitzroy Dearborn Publishers 1997 Auflage: Ill (Oktober 1997) The Encyclopedia of Indo - European Culture provides the fullest and most inclusive coverage yet compiled of the major Indo - European language stocks and their origins, and the conceptual range of the reconstructed Proto - Indo - European language. The encyclopedia also offers entries on selected archaeological cultures having some relationship to the origin and dispersal of Indo - European groups, and on some of the major issues of Indo - European cultural studies. With over 700 entries, written by seventeen leading specialists, the Encyclopedia of Indo - European Culture is an essential reference work for all scholars and students in this field. In addition, its detailed indexing and clear layout and organization will ensure that readers find it easy to use. Outstanding Academic Book Approximately half the world's population speaks an Indo - European language, which is only one of the 20 or so language families. There are more than 140 Indo - European languages, each reflecting, to a greater or lesser extent, their common culture and heritage. Encyclopedia of Indo - European Culture attempts to take a snapshot of current scholarship in the field, covering the major language stocks, their origins, some selected cultures, and a few of the major issues in the field. The editors, scholars on the faculties of Queens University, Belfast, and the University of Idaho, respectively, note that the arrangement of the work is conceptual; therefore, its use as an etymological dictionary is limited, though there is an extensive language index providing access to words in languages such as Old Irish, New English, Czech, or Ukrainian, to name but a few. Most of the entries are devoted to the reconstruction of specific proto - Indo - European (PIE) words. These entries generally consist of the PIE form as far as it can be reconstructed, a glossary, references to sources, linguistic data, a brief discussion, and a short list of additional readings. Abbreviations and technical terminology, used extensively, are defined at the front of the volume. The entries are arranged alphabetically, with a complete list available at the outset. Also available are a general index and a thematic listing of entries. The latter lists 26 subjects, such as animals, law, and mind. The nonlexical entries vary in length, breadth, and scope. The contributors sign most, while some also provide a bibliography of further readings. The five - page entry Celtic Languages, for example, discusses their description and origins. The article includes some maps and a bibliography citing some of the standard works and dictionaries. Other nonlexical entries relate to archaeology and culture. Encyclopedia of Indo - European Culture is an impressive work of collaborative scholarship. As such, most academic libraries would be remiss not to have it. Reality suggests, however, that in such fiscally austere times, this work is so specialized that many libraries will choose not to purchase it. 'Substantive and easy to use, this reference source has been written both to inform and as a platform for further research, covering the major Indo - European languages and stocks, the reconstruction of a Proto - Indo - European language, related archaeological cultures, and the state of Indo - European studies today. It contains nearly 1,000 alphabetically ordered entries contributed by respected scholars ... Recommended for students and specialists interested in this topic as well as college and university libraries supporting historical or linguistic study.' CHOICE 'The book is a delight to read and use.' Indo - European Studies Bulletin J.P. Mallory's "In Search of the Indo - Europeans" is the best one - volume survey of the origins and dispersal of the Indo - European languages. The "Encyclopedia" is more technical, but gives a highly detailed view of the interrelationships of the IE languages and what we can deduce concerning the speakers of the original ur - sprach. NBin view of the review above, and out of consideration to uniformed readers, one should point out that Indo - European linguistics is a well - established field throughout the world scholarly community. en
