Band 20.1, 20.2 und 20.3: Briefwechsel mit Zelter. Band 21: Registerband. Die MÜNCHNER AUSGABE bietet das gesamte dichterische und das autobiographische Werk (oft in verschiedenen Fassungen), sämtliche Schriften zu Literatur und Kunst sowie zur Naturwissenschaft. Zum ersten Mal in der Editionsgeschichte wurden auch die amtlichen Schriften in breiter Auswahl in eine Ausgabe Sämtlicher Werke aufgenommen. Die bedeutenden Briefwechsel mit Schiller und dem Komponisten und Berliner Musikprofessor Carl Friedrich Zelter (beiden hat Goethe selbst Werkcharakter beigemessen) sind ebenso enthalten wie die berühmten Gespräche mit Eckermann. Darüber hinaus wird eine Vielzahl weiterer Briefe und Gespräche in den Bandeinführungen und Kommentaren herangezogen. Goethes Werke erscheinen in dieser Ausgabe, im Unterschied zu bisherigen Goethe-Editionen, nach den jeweiligen Epochen seines Lebens und Schaffens geordnet. Die Ausgabe vereint jeweils in einem Band, was nach entstehungsgeschichtlichen Bedingungen, nach thematischen und strukturellen Gemeinsamkeiten, aber auch hinsichtlich der zeitgenössischen Rezeption zusammengehört. So wird im Rahmen eines Bandes die "wechselseitige Erhellung" unterschiedlicher Werkschichten sichtbar, die auch Goethe selbst wichtig war: von Dichtung und Naturwissenschaft, literarischer Produktion und theoretischer Reflexion, von Akten des Schreibens und autobiographischer Selbstdeutung. Für den Kommentar ergeben sich daraus neue Möglichkeiten, solche Zusammenhänge sichtbar zu machen. Neue Wege geht die Ausgabe auch mit dem dargebotenen Text: Sie vertraut nicht mehr der Ausgabe letzter Hand, sondern bemüht sich, auf bessere frühere Drucke oder die Handschriften zurückzugehen. Auch vom Konzept der Ausgabe her lag diese Entscheidung nahe. In Textgestalt, Anordnung und Kommentar entsteht so ein farbiges und historisch differenziertes Goethe-Bild, das sich der neuen Begegnung und aktuellen Aneignung anbietet. Eine Ausgabe, die - von besten Sachkennern betreut - sowohl den neuesten wissenschaftlichen Standard repräsentiert als auch leserfreundlich angelegt ist. [Die Bände liegen angenehm in der Hand und sind köstlich anzusehen!]

        Modell einer Geisterbahn.

      50 cm briet, 70 cm lang, 18 cm hoch, Tadell. Unikat aus Privatsammlung! Bastian hat diese wilde, farbenfrohe und enorm detailreiche Arbeit (Karton bemalt) als eines von drei (nicht identischen) Modellen gebaut. Der Plan(zusammen mit Basil und Yvan Luginbühl, den Söhnen von Bernahrd Luginbühl) war, mit drei vierzig Fuss-Contianer eine jahrmarkts -Attraktion zu schaffen, welche «High»(kunst) und « Low» (Rummelplatz) verbinden sollte. Leider ist die Aktion wie so vieles am Geld gescheitert. M. S. Bastian, 1963 geboren in Bern, aufgewachsen in Biel. Besucht die Fachklasse für Grafik an der Schule für Gestaltung Biel. 1986 Mitgründer der Galerie Polstergruppe. 1990/91 Aufenthalt in New York, 1991/92 in Paris. Lebt und arbeitet heute als Comiczeichner und Künstler in Zürich. Folgende Bücher sind von ihm erschienen: "Crunch" (Berlin 1994), "Schokoriegel" (Berlin 1993), "Baluba" (Paris 1995), "Päng" (Zürich 1995), "Krampitz Rattenherz" (Berlin 1995), "Comix Art Monographie - M.S. Bastian" (Bern 1996), "Squid" (Marseille 1997), "Squeeze" (Zürich 1997), usw. Diverse Einzel- und Gruppenausstellungen in Europa und Amerika Galerie Krebs, Bern - Galerie Wirth, Zürich - Galerie 4, Basel - Galerie Schuster, Frankfurt und Berlin - Galerie Papiers Gras, Genf - Festival Angoulême, Frankreich - Festival du presse, Morges - Galerie von Gunten, Thun - Museum Mánes, Prag - Regarde moderne, Paris - Galerie Scheuermann, Berlin - Vital Design Center, Tel Aviv - Silvia Steiner, Basel, etc. Beiträge in diversen europäischen und amerikanischen Magazinen und Zeitungen. Bastian: "Ich bin ein Künstler, der von der Freude am Machen lebt, und je mehr ich mache, umso mehr Lust kriege ich darauf. Mein Werk soll zu einer Bildsprache werden, mittels derer ich, dem Cyberspace vergleichbar, ganze Welten neu erschaffen kann. Ich arbeite dabei nicht konzeptuell, mein Schaffen basiert auf dem reinen Lustprinzip. Ohne Lust keine Wonderful World!"

Una monografia dedicata a Virgilio Guidi, pittore contemporaneo, riconosciuto come uno degli artisti più interessanti del variegato panorama pittorico italiano di questo secolo. Pittore figurativo esponente del Novecento, la corrente fondata da Carrà, Guidi è nella prima fase della sua carriera artistica decisamente incline a una pittura di sapore realista. Tuttavia l?amore per Cézanne e la rimeditazione delle partiture di Mondrian lo portano, intorno agli anni quaranta-cinquanta, ad approfondire lo studio del colore, ad abbandonare la figura per accostarsi all?astrattismo.I tre volumi presentano il corpus completo dell?opera dell?artista, catalogata e analizzata sotto un profilo storico-critico.Completano i volumi un ampio saggio biografico, una bibliografia critica, le esposizioni.

        ORIGINAL ART: MORE TALES OF UNCLE REMUS - RABBIT AND FOX ON ROOF

      1998. PINKNEY,JERRY (HARRIS,JOEL CHANDLER)illus. ORIGINAL ART: MORE TALES OF UNCLE REMUS - RABBIT AND FOX ON ROOF - by Joel Chandler Harris. We are pleased to offer this art by Pinkney used in his edition of More Tales of Uncle Remus published in 1988 by Dial. This is a detailed pen and ink drawing that appears on page 5. The actual image measures 6 1/2" wide x 7" high on art paper 7 1/2 x 11" and is signed - a charming image. Jerry Pinkney has been illustrating children's books since 1964 and has the rare distinction of being the recipient of three Caldecott Honor Medals -- in 1995 for John Henry by Julius Lester (Dial), in 1990 for The Talking Eggs by Robert D. San Souci (Dial) and in 1989 for Mirandy and Brother Wind by Patricia C. McKissack (Knopf). He has won the Coretta Scott King Award three times and a Coretta Scott King Honor twice. Mr. Pinkney has received four awards for his body of work: the Drexel Citation for Children's Literature, the David McCord Award , the Philadelphia School of Art and Design Alumni Award, and the Keene State College Children's Literature Festival Award. In addition to his work on children's books, he is an extremely successful artist who has had eleven one-man retrospectives at venues ranging from the Museum of the National Center of Afro-American Artists, the Art Institute of Chicago and Pittsburgh Children's Museum. and will be traveling through 1998. Mr. Pinkney has illustrated for a wide variety of clients, including National Geographic , the National Parks Service, the U.S. Postal Service, the American Library Association and the Association of Booksellers for Children.... Many of Mr. Pinkney's children's books celebrate multicultural and African American themes. 'Working on both the Uncle Remus tales and John Henry has shown me an important link between pivotal and opposite African American folk heroes. Brer Rabbit, the sly trickster, originated during slavery and was the first African American folk hero. Slaves who wanted to get the better of their masters needed to be cunning and sly -- hence the trickster role.' " (from Penguin web site).
