        Robert Indiana-Highball on the Redball Manifest-1997 Serigraph-SIGNED

      1997 - "Highball on the Redball Manifest" by Robert Indiana, Signed Serigraph printed in 1997 from an edition size of 30. The overall size of the Serigraph is 18.5 x 16 inches. The condition of this piece has been graded as A: Mint. Here is some supplemental information about the Serigraph: Signed, Labeled a "T.P." (Trial Proof), and Numbered out of 30 in pencil by Robert Indiana. Limited Edition Serigraph published by Marco Fine Arts Contemporary Atelier and released as part of the large portfolio and book entitled "The American Dream". Detail from 'The American Dream": "The Locomotive, for one who grew up in the Midwest in the mid-century, was as ritual and magical a part of life as cars were in 60's Los Angeles. This was even more to Indiana since his grandfather was a train engineer. Indiana pays homage to his grandfather and to his second home in C.Slip by referring to 25. Again, Indiana searches across the two dimensional plane inlaying his vision with precision of a fine engineer. At first glance the artwork appears to be a pattern of shapes rather than a singular image and that effect of ideas within forms, forms within ideas --a concrete-like poetry -- is a seminal to Indiana's work."

        Seven Pillars of Wisdom: a triumph, the complete 1922 'Oxford' text, three volume limited and numbered edition of 1997 Set #226

      Salisbury, England: Castle Hill Press, 1997. Hardcover. This is an as-new set of the three-volume Castle Hill Press limited edition of the full 1922 "Oxford" text, set #226 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 "226" 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, is unusually bright and clean, marred only by an unobtrusive bump to the lower right rear corner and light shelf scuffing to the bottom edge.

        A Supposedly Fun Thing I’ll Never Do Again: Essays and Arguments

      Boston: Little Brown, 1997. First edition. Octavo, original half cloth. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Signed by David Foster Wallace on the title page. "These vivid, hilarious essays attracted much attention when they were originally published, but they also made Mr. Wallace vulnerable to accusations, as a friend of mine put it, of ''sneering at ordinary people.'' Rereading them lays such reservations to rest. The primary butt of Mr. Wallace's humor is himself, and if he seizes upon his experiences to reveal ugly aspects of the American character, he always does it through the lens of his own worst impulses" (The New York Times).

Barbara Milman: "In 1994 I decided to interview Holocaust survivors and create a series of prints based on their stories. I then approached the San Francisco Holocaust Oral History Project, which graciously put me in touch with several survivors. Two of these individuals, Rita Kuhn (Berlin) and Gloria Lyon (Auschwitz), were the first of my interviewees. Subsequently, other subjects were suggested by friends and acquaintances, and I interviewed three more individuals: Peter Schrag (Escape), Alexander Groth (Warsaw), and Hielke Sheneman (Holland).... "It is my hope that telling these stories today, one-half a century after they happened, will make it less likely that similar stories will have to be told in the future." Interview of Gloria Lyon: A Hungarian child survives the largest death camp. Barbara Milman: "Upon arrival at Auschwitz, Jews were divided into two groups. The elderly and infirm were sent directly to the gas chambers. The young and healthy were sent to the forced labor section of the camp." Gloria Lyon: "We were in Auschwitz. Heads shaved, arms tattooed, we were sent to barracks. Next morning my mother, my sister and I were set to work sorting and packing clothing, shoes, glasses for shipment to Germany. Night and day thick black smoke filled the camp with an awful stench. After a few days I completely lost all my sense of smell."

        LITTLE, BIG: THE HARDCOVER SPECIAL EDITION - Rare Fine Copy of The Easton Press Collector's Edition: Signed by John Crowley - ONLY SIGNED COPY OF EASTON PRESS EDITION ONLINE

      Norwalk, CT: Easton Press, 1997 - 1st Printing. Signed. 538 pages. Published in 1997. Rare John Crowley and "Little, Big" collectible item. A fine copy of the Easton Press Collector's Edition, signed by John Crowley. He did NOT sign most copies of the edition. The author's fantasy novel. One of the greatest novels of the 20th century. The Easton Press Collector's Edition. Published in a small and limited one-time-only print run as a hardcover original only that sold out shortly after publication. There is no ISBN. The Collector's Edition is now rare. Its production values are exemplary in every respect: Regular-sized volume format. Black leather boards with gilt design on the cover and gilt titles on the spine, as issued. Text by John Crowley. Exquisite frontispiece by the legendary artist/illustrator Alan Clark. Raised bands. Green satin ribbon marker. Gilt page edges. Smyth-sewn with concealed muslin joints. Printed on pristine-white, archival stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. The "acid-free" paper was milled especially for this edition only, meets the standards of the Council of Library Resources, and appropriately enough, will last 1000 years. Without DJ, as issued. Presents, in its Collector's Edition format, John Crowley's "Little, Big". The grand 20th-century response to Lewis Carroll's 19th-century masterpiece, "Alice's Adventures In Wonderland". Perhaps the greatest modern fantasy novel. With just two words and a comma, the simple title encapsulates the novel's cosmic vision. "Little" is our finite world. "Big" is another, infinitely expanding universe. Within our world, there is another; within that, yet another; and another, AD INFINITUM. At the center, accessible only after several epochs, is the Faerie Realm. Unlike our Hollywood special-effects fantasies, which present the universe rather literally as "outer space", "Little, Big" looks deeply within, and envisions the universe as infinite "inner space". Rather than an image-world, a profound, metaphysical vision is awe-inspiringly evoked whereas "Star Wars" (and all of our other fantasies of life elsewhere) are, in the end, merely projections, however spectacular, of our finite world. "A book that, all by itself, calls for a re-definition of fantasy" (Ursula K. Le Guin). "A neglected masterpiece. The closest achievement we have to the Alice stories of Lewis Carroll" (Harold Bloom). "The best fantasy novel ever. Period" (Thomas Disch). An absolute "must-have" title for John Crowley collectors. This is a copy of the Easton Press Collector's Edition, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in black fountain pen on the title page by John Crowley. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a great book. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the Easton Press First Edition Thus/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Crowley did NOT sign most copies of the Collector's Edition. There are NO copies of the Bantam First Edition online whereas copies of the 1981 First British Edition command up to $1500 (rightly so). This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. One of the greatest novelists of our time. A fine collectible copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
