        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.

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.

        Jumbo Sarony Photograph - SIGNED IN NEW YORK, 1882

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Original portrait photograph by Napoleon Sarony, large format albumen cabinet card, SIGNED BY WILDE ("Oscar Wilde June '82 New York"), quarter length, turned to the left and half looking back towards but not at the camera, wearing his astrakhan coat. 7 1⁄4" x 12 3⁄4", archivally matted and set in a fine hand-carved original Aesthetic Movement frame under UV plexi.  The image has had some cleaning and restoration work to the surface, the edges and the bottom corners. There is a surface crack through the "e" of June and light damage to the surface just above the "c" in Oscar.  Wilde is very scarce in signed photographs, and ones of this size are particularly rare. Reference: Merlin Holland, The Wilde Album, 1997 (number 22 in Holland's sequence); Richard Ellman, Oscar Wilde, 1987.<br style="">Among the best known images of Wilde, it is one of the twenty-seven images of him which Sarony took at the beginning of the former's tour of America in 1882. Sarony was the pre-eminent New York photographer of his day and one of the city's favourite eccentrics. <br>Wilde, who was eager to make an international reputation, first came to America on a lecture tour arranged by the English impresario, Richard d'Oyly Carte (of Gilbert and Sullivan fame), arriving on the SS Arizona on January 3rd, 1882, this being the date of his famous quip to the NY Customs House officer that he had "nothing to declare except my genius." On a grueling schedule, Wilde lectured to Americans on aestheticism in a new town every few days and though the tour was originally planned to last four months, it was continued for over a year. In preparation for this tour, he bought himself some suitably aesthetic outfits, including a long, heavy, fur-lined green overcoat (shown in this photograph). He became very attached to this coat, writing later that "it was all over America with me ... it knows me perfectly," and he wore it when he set sail for New York on Christmas Eve, 1881, without a word of his lectures written. <br style=""><br>

        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).

        Fancy on a Bach Air for solo cello. Autograph musical manuscript signed. Undated, but 1966. The complete work

      Commissioned by Judy and Robert Goldberg and first performed by Yo-Yo Ma at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston on August 24, 1997. "My 'Goldberg Variation,' Fancy on a Bach Air, is for unaccompanied cello. It transforms the gentle arches of Bach's theme into slowly soaring arpeggi of almost unending phrase-lengths. Its dual inspiration was the love of two extraordinary people and the solo cello suites of a great composer - both of them strong, long-lined, passionate, eternal, and for me, definitive of all that is beautiful lin life." johncorigliano.com. 1 page. Oblong folio, 280 x 420 mm. Notated in pencil on light green 16-stave printed Aztec XX-16 music paper, with music encompassing both bass and soprano clefs, mostly unbarred. Signed at upper right, with autograph titling, "Fancy on a Bach Aria," at head, and tempo ("Largo") and metronome marking (". = ca. 48-56") at upper left. With ("ca 5:30") at conclusion, indicating that the piece is approximately 5 minutes and 30 seconds in length.

        Guardian of Sterile Waters.

      Brooklyn, New York:: Miriam Schaer,, [1997].. One-of-a-Kind. 12 x 20 x 6" sculptural bookwork. Materials: ladies' girdle, acrylic, ink, silk, sterile-water ampules, plastic toy laser print, ribbon. Miriam Schaer: "Guardian of Sterile Water is the third and last of the three books I made to explore my infertility and issues around motherhood. Guardian was created after the treatments failed, using as art materials some of the leftover fertility drugs - specifically the ampules of sterilized water that was to be used in mixing Clomid and Perganol - infertility drugs that were commonly used in the late 90s. "Inside the bustier, there is a heart-shaped inset box, or cartouche, which holds a heart shaped book. The book's pages are collages of actual medical records complimented by images of infants. "The bottom of the heart is lined with broken bottles from the ampules of the sterilized water. All three deal with the urge to have a child - that is, to become a mother - and the coming to terms with its unlikelihood in my own life. "My work in this vein is chiefly a way of asking questions that explore feminine, feminist, and social issues that I sometimes think have no answers. So I try to make sense of things by making art."

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.

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.
