        The Principle of Absolute Unity (The Seed)

      Long Beach, California:: Pia Pizzo,, 1998.. One-of-a-Kind. 14.75 x 22.25"; 24 leaves. Paper cutting. Papier d'Arches and Japanese rice paper. Ribbon page markers. Bound in paper covered boards with ribbon tie closures. Features cut-out geometric shapes, including circles, triangles, squares, and rectangles. Gold leaf and bright red papers were used to accent the pastedowns and free end pages. Pizzo uses her own language of near microscopic hand-lettering and undecipherable text, created with small pinholes and paper tears. The Seed is one of three books used in Pizzo's installation "The Door," shown in an exhibition Exceptionally Scaled Artists' Books (Kellogg Gallery, Cal Poly Pomona, 2005). Her sketch of the installation appears on the first page of The Seed. Judith Hoffberg, review EXCEPTIONALLY SCALED ARTISTS' BOOKS: "Also grasping at the spiritual, Pia Pizzo is interested in the tactile quality of material of non-books and non-readable books. Using handmade paper, she sees the page as a virgin void of mental space. With progressive cutting, she opens up the perspective to create a feeling of mysticism, cosmic unity, and sacred geometry. After studying, feeling, and handling the paper in a kind of meditation, she tears these beautiful sheets, defying any aggressive act. In fact, she respects the paper as her medium, since it comes from France or Japan, China or Nepal. The source location in effect imbues its paper with its own spirituality.

        Roma sotterranea.

      Quasar 1998 Roma sotterranea. Bosio, Antonio. Editore: Quasar Scheda: Riproduzione integrale dell'edizione originale (Roma, 1632). Presentazione di Vincenzo Fiocchi Niccolai. Roma, 1998; ril. in tela in cofanetto, pp. 720, 200 ill. col, 6 mappe, cm 47,5x34,5. ISBN: 88 - 7140 - 124 - 7 Nel 1632 vedeva la luce la «Roma Sotterranea» di Antonio Bosio, un prezioso volume «in - folio» nel quale erano raccolti i risultati delle decennali ricerche dell'insigne archeologo maltese sulle catacombe romane. Il lavoro, atteso dalle più eminenti personalità dell'epoca (artisti, letterati, gerarchie ecclesiastiche, politici), non disattese le aspettative: si trattava di un'opera che per la prima volta illustrava sistematicamente i cimiteri sotterranei cristiani del suburbio romano. Di questi l'Autore descriveva gli ambienti accessibili, le pitture che li decoravano, i sarcofagi, le iscrizioni e gli oggetti che ne costituivano l'arredo. Un prezioso e abbondante apparato di disegni, planimetrie e spaccati era di supporto al testo. L'illustrazione e il commento dei monumenti trattati si avvaleva per la prima volta delle notizie provenienti dalle fonti letterarie, che il Bosio aveva recuperato attraverso una paziente e completa ricognizione dei testi dell'antichità cristiana. Attraverso la valorizzazione critica di questa documentazione, poté interpretare le immagini riprodotte sui materiali iconografici, poté dare un nome e una storia ai numerosi monumenti che andava scoprendo lungo le vie consolari. Il volume del Bosio resta una pietra miliare negli studi di archeologia cristiana. Le ricognizioni pionieristiche dell'Autore permisero di aggiungere alle sole quattro o cinque catacombe fino ad allora conosciute circa una quarantina di nuovi cimiteri sotterranei. La descrizione di quanto lo studioso vide nelle sue lunghe peregrinazioni negli ambulacri delle catacombe, ad oltre 350 anni di distanza, non cessa di costituire fonte preziosissima ed indispensabile per chiunque si accinga allo studio delle catacombe romane. Il suo metodo «storico - fotografico» di ricerca spianò le strade agli studi scientifici ottocenteschi di Giovanni Battista De Rossi con i quali doveva nascere l'archeologia cristiana moderna. L'opera del «Cristoforo Colombo della Roma sotterranea» si impone per l'ampiezza e la monumentalità della materia trattata, per come l'Autore ha saputo trasfondere in essa il suo entusiasmo pionieristico, per l'indiscutibile fascino degli stessi monumenti oggetto del lavoro. La nuova edizione integrale è promossa dalla Pontificia Commissione di Archeologia Sacra e dalla Presidenza del Consiglio Regionale del Lazio in occasione dell'Anno Giubilare del 2000. Livre

        Art Nouveau Poster Commemorating the 100th Anniversary of Volta's Discovery of the Electric Battery, by Adolfo Hohenstein

      1998. Art Nouveau Commemoration of Volta's Discovery, by One of Italy's Greatest Poster Artists[Volta, Alessandro (1745-1827)] Commemoration of Volta in the centenary of the electric pile. Como, May-October 1899. . . . Chromolithographed poster by Adolfo Hohenstein (1854-1928), signed and dated in the stone by the artist. Milan: G. Ricordi, [1899]. 170 x 51.1 centimeters, mounted on linen. A few tears expertly repaired, otherwise a fine example of this large and striking Art Nouveau poster. Small stamp of the city of Como in lower right corner. Archivally framed under UF3 plexiglass.First Edition, Extremely Rare English-Language Version of this striking Art Nouveau poster, designed for the 1899 Exposizione Internazionale di Elettricita in Como, an exhibition of electrical products commemorating the hundredth anniversary of the electric battery. The poster is an excellent example of the art of Adolfo Hohenstein, the brilliant German-born master of the Art Nouveau style whose extensive work for the Italian publisher Ricordi represents the foundation of a distinct Italian poster tradition rivaling that of France. The poster, printed in shades of tan, blue, green and rust highlighted with gold ink or gold leaf, shows "two young women with the symbols of manual labor (a shuttlecock and a washboard) plac[ing] a wreath around the cameo of Alessandro Volta (1754-1827), to indicate their gratefulness for his electricity that liberates them from drudgery" (Rennert PAI-XXXVI, 353). The poster exists in three formats: 170 cm. high format, as in our example (also issued in French- and Italian-language versions), a c. 220 cm. high format, and in small format as part of the Ricordi commemorative portfolio published in 1914. This is probably the only Art Nouveau poster commemorating an event in the history of electrical or physical science. Very rare-posters of this kind were ephemeral pieces intended to be mounted in public places, and very few copies survive outside museums.

        Travels in the Western Hebrides from 1782 to 1790

      MacLean Press, 1998-07. Paperback. New. New clean, tight, unmarked, (Fine) no spine or cover creases,() In 1793, the Reverend Buchanan published a searchingly full account of his time spent in the Western Isles between 1782 and 1790. As Missionary Minister, he was well placed to record all aspects of life in the island, and his work has left subsequent generations insight into island life in the 18th century: the social conditions, religious beliefs and superstitions, agriculture and trade systems of the inhabitants. Formerly only available from the original limited print run of 1793, this work should appeal to those interested in the Western Hebrides.

        Boston Marriage [Inscribed Typescript]

      NY: Rosentone Wender Agency. 1998. The bound typescript of Mamet's 1999 play, uncharacteristically focused on female leads, and set at the turn of the 20th century. 137 pages, printed on rectos only, bound in printed yellow cardstock with the Wender Agency address. Inscribed by Mamet in 1999: "To ___. For a loyal friend of the A.R.T. [American Repertory Theater] -- some merchandise for your loyalty. May it amuse you, provoke your ire, shim up a chair, or start a fire. Love - David." With an additional doodle (of the author wearing an A.R.T. ball cap) and his Mamet stamp, which also appears on the front cover. The script has a printed dated of December 1998, more than six months before the play premiered. The inscription has a date of June 3, 1999, about two weeks before the June 16 premiere at A.R.T. The recipient was on the Advisory Board of the theater and also a major donor to it. A few stains to the front cover, else fine in folding chemise and custom clamshell case. Very uncommon, and a nice association with someone closely involved with the theater where the play debuted. First Edition.

        A Brazilian in Florida / Um Brasileiro na Flórida

      Tampa, Florida:: Graphicstudio,, 1998.. Editioin of 100 + 30 proofs. 10 x 8.5"; 24 pages. Eight piece woodblock suite. Letterpress text. Parallel text of Portuguese and English poem on facing pages. English text by Vitria Abreu and Hank Hine. Designed by Hank Nine. Printed on Rives lightweight paper. Housed in drop-front archival box. Signed and numbered by the artist on the colophon. Colophon: "A Brazilian in Florida is a book of block prints and poems by Abraão Batista. The book consists of eight blocks and a poem in eight sections carved and composed by the artist/poet during his visit to Graphicstudio at the University of South Florida for the conference Block Printing in the Americas, held in September 1996." Graphicstudio: "Abraão Batista is one of the foremost authors of cordel, a venerable folk art from northeast Brazil. "A Brazilian in Florida chronicles Batista's journey to Tampa in 1996 through eight woodblock prints and an eight-part poem (in English and Portuguese) in letterpress, presented in a folio box. "Batista, whose cordels have been produced in the hundreds of thousands, collaborated with Graphicstudio to create a version of the cordel which echoes the form yet amplifies it, and preserves it with fine archival paper and boxing. "The cordel is a small booklet combining a handcarved woodcut image and a poem, both created by the artist. These booklets are cheaply produced on thin wood pulp paper and, hung from rope at the market, are sold for pennies - hence the term, cordel. The subjects of the cordels include folk tales, television and pop stars, religion, and politics. Whether ancient or contemporary, the theme is always expressed in a 17th-century Iberian stanza and rhyming form, testament to the geographic and cultural isolation of northeastern Brazil. Not taught in art schools, cordel is passed down through apprenticeships from generation to generation." From Juazeiro do Norte in northeastern Brazil, Abraão Batista is a retired professor of biophysics and a poet, sculptor, printmaker, and ceramic artist.
