Schuber, schönes Exemplar, Die berühmte mittelalterliche Handschrift bietet ein breit gefächertes Bild üer das Denken und Wissen jener Zeit: Neben einer Abhandlung über die Gedächtnis kunst, einem astrolgoischen Teil mit Planetenbildern, Liebesgärten, Turnieren u. a. Zeichnungen, finden sich darin medizinische und haushaltwirtschaftliche Rezepte sowie Kapitel über Bergbau und Kriegskunst. Der ursprünglicher Auftraggeber des Codex konnte nicht ermittelt werden. Ein zweimal auftachendes Wappen ist nicht identifiziert. Als Entstehungszeit nimmt man das Ende des 15. Jahrhunderts an. Ein Teil des Textes ("Gedächtniskunst" und "Planetenkinder") wurde von einer Schreibwerkstatt geschrieben, die restlichen Kapitel zeigen dagegen eine bemüht saubere aber nicht professionelle Handschrift mit stärkeren und schwächeren Strichen. Leichte Schwankungen des Stils zwischen den einzelnen Lagen lassen vermuten, dass die Texte nicht in einem Zug geschrieben wurden, sondern längere Zeiträume dazwischen lagen.

        BLINDNESS

      New York City, NY: Harcourt Brace, 1997. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: Harcourt Brace, 1997. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 294 pages. The author's sixth novel to be translated into English. One of the greatest novels of the 20th century. The first appearance of the title in English and in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. Presents Jose Saramago's "Ensaio sobre a Cegueira" in a felicitous English translation. His anti-totalitarian allegory/novel. It is the very last translation by Giovanni Pontiero, to whom the book is dedicated (together with Saramago's wife Pilar and daughter Violante). Saramago considered himself very lucky (rightly so) to have had two masterly English translators (Pontiero was succeeded by Margaret Jull Costa). By the most cruelly ironic twist of fate, Pontiero was already gravely ill when he was working on "Blindness". "He was translating 'Blindness', which he finished. Then he died. Toward the end, he himself started to go blind as a result of medication his doctors gave him. He had to choose between taking the medication, which would sustain him for a bit longer, and not taking it, which would create other risks. He chose, shall we say, to preserve his vision, and he was translating a novel about blindness. It was a devastating situation" (Jose Saramago). Saramago was an anomaly who came out of nowhere, seemingly born a genius. Every single page of every single book he has ever written makes the reader feel that he or she is in the hands of an unsurpassable Master. "He got ahead of us; he is ahead of us. His work belongs to our future" (Ursula K. LeGuin). The basis of the fine (and underrated) film adaptation by Fernando Meirelles, with Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo. An absolute "must-have" title for Jose Saramago collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed and dated in black pen on the title page by the author: "Jose Saramago 24.4.2002". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. This title is a great book. This is one of very few such signed and dated copies of the First American Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online have serious flaws ("Near Fine") yet are priced as though they had collectible value. Among the Nobel Laureates and other great writers of our time, Saramago's signature was probably the most difficult to get because he rarely left Lanzarote, the island he moved to at the height of his fame. Now that he is dead, he isn't signing any more copies. And yet, signed copies of his books, while not exactly cheap, remain under-priced as compared to those of say, Gabriel Garcia Marquez or Cormac McCarthy. While they are great writers, Saramago will be regarded by posterity as a greater writer than both of them, and there is no British or American novelist of the last fifty years, living or dead, who comes close to Saramago's achievement (except, according to Harold Bloom, for Philip Roth at his best). A rare signed copy thus. </B></i> Regarded by Harold Bloom as one of the two greatest novelists of our time (the other being Philip Roth), Jose Saramago will be read as probably the greatest European novelist of the last fifty years. Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1998. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER JOSE SARAMAGO TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0151002517.

        Crossfire Hurricane.

      UK: Genesis Publications. 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 1233, with an original advertisement leaf loosely inserted.

        Seven Pillars of Wisdom: a triumph, the complete 1922 'Oxford' text, three volume limited and numbered edition of 1997 Set #169

      Salisbury, England: Castle Hill Press, 1997. Hand-numbered limited edition. Hardcover. This is an as-new set of the three-volume Castle Hill Press limited edition of the full 1922 "Oxford" text, set #169 of 752 total and 650 copies issued thus. This edition marks the first time that Lawrence's full text was made available to the public since its original circulation to a select few in 1922. Seven Pillars of Wisdom is the story of T.E. Lawrence's (1888-1935) remarkable odyssey as instigator, organizer, hero, and tragic figure of the Arab revolt against the Ottoman Empire during the First World War, which he began as an eccentric junior intelligence officer and ended as "Lawrence of Arabia." This time defined Lawrence with indelible experience and celebrity, which he spent the rest of his short life struggling to reconcile and reject, to recount and repress. Lawrence famously resisted publication of his masterwork for the general public during his lifetime. The saga is remarkable. He nearly completed a massive first draft in 1919, only to lose it when his briefcase was mislaid at a train station. This first draft was never recovered. At a fever pitch, Lawrence wrote a new 400,000 word draft in 1920. This punishing burst of writing was followed by an equally brutal process of editing by Lawrence. In 1922, a 335,000 word version was carefully circulated to select friends and literary critics - the famous "Oxford Text". George Bernard Shaw called it "a masterpiece". Nonetheless, Lawrence was unready to see it distributed to the public. In 1926, a further edited 250,000 word "Subscribers' Edition" was produced by Lawrence - but fewer than 200 copies were made, each lavishly and uniquely bound. The process cost Lawrence far more than he made in subscriptions. To recover the loss, Lawrence finally authorized an edition for the general public - but one even further abridged and titled Revolt in the Desert. It was only in the summer of 1935, in the weeks following Lawrence's death, that the text of the Subscribers' Edition was finally published for circulation to the general public. However, that text released to the world as "Complete and Unabridged" in 1935 and which became so famous is, in fact, a significantly abridged version. The fuller 1922 "Oxford Text" - a third longer - would not be published in an edition available to the public until this 1997 edition. Castle Hill Press took this text from the manuscript in the Bodleian Library and T.E. Lawrence's annotated copy of the 1922 Oxford Times printing. Castle Hill first published a three-volume limited edition of 752 sets of this Oxford Text. Of these, 650 sets were issued thus. The production value is excellent and aesthetically appealing. The large volumes measure 11.25 x 9 inches. The two text volumes are printed on acid-free stock and bound in quarter cream cloth and grey paper-covered boards with green leather spine labels, head and foot bands, green top edge stain, and green endpapers. The Volume I rear pastedown features a pocket bearing two folding, color maps. The third volume contains illustrations, featuring 41 full-page Seven Pillars portraits (26 in full color as in the 1926 Subscriber's edition) as well as 127 war photographs, mainly from the collection Lawrence presented to the Imperial War Museum. The Illustrations volume is bound in full cream cloth with illustrated endpapers. All three volumes are issued in uniform dust jackets evocative of the original 1935 British trade edition of the shorter text and housed in a dark red cloth slipcase. This set is as-new - truly fine in fine dust jackets. The volumes appear pristine, the limitation page hand-numbered "169" by the publisher. The dust jackets are crisp and immaculate, now protected beneath removable, archival quality clear covers. The publisher?s slipcase, which typically scuffs and soils easily, shows virtually no wear. This set includes the original publisher?s prospectus laid in, as well as an original order form. Bibliographic reference: O'Brien A034a.

        BIBBIA di Borso d'Este: ms Lat 422 - 423, Biblioteca Estense e universitaria, (Facsimile). Modena, Franco Cosimo Panini, (1997)

      1997. due volumi in - folio (40x28cm), magnifica legatura in velluto rosso con stemmi dorati in rilievo ai piatti, fermagli dorati, tagli dorati, conservati in coperte di seta damascata dorata ed entro astucci in legno ricoperto e figurato. La Bibbia di Borso d'Este è un manoscritto miniato su pergamena in due volumi. L'opera originale è conservata nella Biblioteca Estense di Modena con la collocazione Ms. Lat. 422 - 423 ed è qui riprodotta in prestigioso facsimile, impresso in soli 750 esemplari (ns. 357), su carta speciale senza acidi o sbiancanti chimici, di cui 648 num. e 2 non numerati e in possesso del Papa e del Presidente della Repubblica. La Bibbia eseguita per Borso d'Este, Duca di Ferrara, tra il 1455 e il 1461 costituisce il capolavoro assoluto della miniatura italiana del Rinascimento; fu eseguita su pergamena nell'arco di sei anni da una squadra di artisti diretta da Taddeo Crivelli e da Franco dei Russi. Ogni pagina della Bibbia, recto e verso, è decorata da un'elegante cornice di girali e altri ornamenti, con il testo su due colonne. Nella cornice si trovano scene figurate, soprattutto nella parte inferiore, dove si notano spesso ambientazioni in prospettiva, aggiornate alle conquiste della pittura coeva. Si trovano scene anche tra le colonne di testo, magari accanto alle lettere maiuscole figurate o istoriate. Nelle volute agli angoli si trovano spesso animali, rappresentati con vivace spirito di osservazione che ricorda il gusto cortese, sovente legati a riferimenti araldici a Borso e alla sua casata. Questo insieme costituisce una eccezionale galleria d'arte rinascimentale, la cui ricchezza non trova paragone in nessuna altra testimonianza artistica coeva. Nel 1923 l'imprenditore Giovanni Treccani acquistò a Parigi, per l'enorme cifra di 5 milioni di lire, la Bibbia di Borso d'Este che stava per essere venduta in America, e la donò al Regno d'Italia. Per iniziativa dello stesso donatore, di tale opera sono state eseguite alcune copie anastatiche, una dallo stesso Treccani negli anni '30 e una da Bolis nel 1961. Esemplare assolutamente perfetto di opera prestigiosa e magnifica.

      - Hg. Christoph Graf zu Waldburg-Wolfegg. Die berühmte mittelalterliche Handschrift ist seit der internationalen Ausstellungstournee 1997-99 nur noch in Form dieses Faksimiles zugänglich. Die vorliegende zweibändige Ausgabe erschien in einer streng limitierten Auflage. Nach erfolgter Drucklegung wurden die Druckträger vernichtet, um die Einmaligkeit der Edition zu gewährleisten. Das um 1480 datierte »Mittelalterliche Hausbuch« stammt von Hand eines Meisters, dessen Identität ein großes Rätsel geblieben ist, dessen Druckgraphik jedoch einen maßgeblichen Einfluß auf den jüngeren Albrecht Dürer ausgeübt hat. Mit viel Einfühlungsvermögen und Witz porträtierte der wahrscheinlich am Mittelrhein tätige Meister die Welt - der Zauber seiner Zeichnungen von hoher künstlerischer Qualität gibt lebendige Einblicke in das Leben des deutschen Spätmittelalters. Das kostbare Dokument aus dem Besitz der Fürsten zu Waldburg Wolfegg wird mit diesem Faksimile erstmals einem breiten Publikum zugänglich gemacht. Es bietet den Liebhabern ein breit gefächertes Bild über das Denken und Wissen jener Zeit: Neben einer Abhandlung über die Gedächtniskunst, einem astrologischen Teil mit Planetenbildern, Liebesgärten, Turnieren u. a. Zeichnungen, finden sich darin medizinische und haushaltwirtschaftliche Rezepte sowie Kapitel über Bergbau und Kriegskunst. »Der ursprüngliche Auftraggeber des Codex konnte nicht ermittelt werden. Ein zweimal auftauchendes Wappen ist nicht identifiziert. Als Entstehungszeit nimmt man das Ende des 15. Jahrhunderts an. Das Werk besteht aus 63 Pergamentblättern gleicher Qualität in 9 Lagen. Ursprünglich könnten es sogar 96 Blatt gewesen sein. Der Einband aus schlichtem, biegsamem Leder mit einer Klappe ähnelt einer Mappe. Ein Teil des Textes (»Gedächtniskunst« und »Planetenkinder«) wurde von einer Schreibwerkstatt geschrieben, die restlichen Kapitel zeigen dagegen eine bemüht saubere, aber nicht professionelle Handschrift mit stärkeren und schwächeren Strichen. Leichte Schwankungen des Stils zwischen den einzelnen Lagen lassen vermuten, dass die Texte nicht in einem Zug geschrieben wurden, sondern längere Zeiträume dazwischen lagen. Als Wolfegger Besitz wird das Werk erstmals im Nachlass-Inventar fünf Jahre nach dem Tod des Grafen Maximilian Willibald (1604 - 1667) erwähnt. Dieser Graf war ein passionierter Kunstliebhaber, dessen Sammlung bis heute unveräußerlich im Besitz der Familie ist. Das »Hausbuch« der Grafen zu Waldburg Wolfegg besteht aus den sechs Abschnitten »Die Gedächtniskunst«, »Die Planetenkinder«, »Ritterliches Leben«, »Medizinische und hauswirtschaftliche Rezepte«, »Montan- und Münzwesen« und »Der Krieg«. Es umfasst also sämtliche Abschnitte des mittelalterlichen Lebens. Der Name »Hausbuch« wurde dem Werk auf Grund seines Inhalts 1865 von Rolf von Retberg gegeben. Diese Bezeichnung wurde auch auf den unbekannten Künstler übertragen, für den sich der Notname »Hausbuchmeister« oder auch »Meister des Amsterdamer Kabinetts« nach dem Aufbewahrungsort der meisten seiner Stiche eingebürgert hat.« (aus dem Kommentarband) Wegen seiner großen Bedeutung für die deutsche Geschichte gab das Germanische Nationalmuseum in Nürnberg bereits im 19. Jahrhundert ein erstes Faksimile des Hausbuches heraus, einen Nachstich. Die 100-Jahr-Feier des Reichsmuseums in Amsterdam 1985 und die Faksimilierung 1997 waren Anlass für Ausstellungen mit dem Hausbuch und seinem Umfeld. Das mittelalterliche Hausbuch. Faksimileband: 21 x 31,5 cm, für die Reproduktion wurde die Originalhandschrift aus Schloß Wolfegg mit größter Sorgfalt reproduziert und fünffarbig (mit Malgold) gedruckt. Die Druckbögen wurden einzeln geschnitten und von Hand gebunden. Der Halbledereinband trägt auf dem Rücken eine Goldprägung. Kommentarband: ca. 160 S., ca. 110 Abb., Halbledereinband mit Goldprägung (dt., engl.). Der Schuber ist büttenbezogen und mit Leinen verstärkt. Sonderaufbindung für FRÖLICH & KAUFMANN.

        Strike Up the Band. In Three Volumes

      Milwaukee, WI, 1997. One of 10 copies only, each signed and numbered by the artist. Vol. I, 54pp; Vol. II, 54pp; Vol. III, 56pp. Page size: 3-5/8 x 1 inch. Bound: wood-grained paper over boards in shape of cigar with cigar label at pointed end with volume number hand-lettered and onlaid to the original wrapper by the artist; all housed in "cigar box" of wood-grained paper with cigar band and stamp onlaid and title hand-written by Poehlmann. Each page is hand-written by the artist on the verso and the recto has an original cigar band mounted to the page. The text is a mix of aphorisms, history, and lore of tobacco and smoking, with quotes by famous authors, etc. The Introduction tells us that the cigar band was invented by Catherine the Great of Russia, when she tied a bit of silk ribbon around her stogie to avoid staining her fingers! A witty production with the actual cigar labels quite attractive.

Bovendien is aan dit exemplaar een originele, gesigneerde en gedateerde inkttekening van Veerkamp toegevoegd (12,1 x 12,1 cm; onder passe-partout): de arrestatie van een exhibitionist (Hotz: 'Een papierbleke man liep toen voort naast een witgehandschoende agent die een hoge fiets meevoerde').Volgens het colofon werden alle exemplaren door de auteur gesigneerd. Maar vanwege het slechte gezichtsvermogen van de auteur werd slechts een klein deel van de oplage gesigneerd. Dit exemplaar is wél gesigneerd, op het schutblad, in balpen.

He is bullied by them and his fat, spoilt cousin Dudley, and lives a very unremarkable life with only the odd hiccup (like his hair growing back overnight!) to cause him much to think about. That is until an owl turns up with a letter addressed to Harry and all hell breaks loose! He is literally rescued by a world where nothing is as it seems and magic lessons are the order of the day. Read and find out how Harry discovers his true heritage at Hogwarts School of Wizardry and Witchcraft, the reason behind his parents mysterious death, who is out to kill him, and how he uncovers the most amazing secret of all time, the fabled Philosopher's Stone! All this and muggles too. Now, what are they? This is Jo's first book and she has already written seven outlines for Harry's further adventures at Hogwarts.
