        White-Bellied Go-Away-Bird, fem. (=Weißbauch-Lärmvogel, Corythaixoides leucogaster). Äußerst seltene Handzeichnung Coopers‘ – Vorarbeit zur Illustration der Turako-Monographie (2002). Athi River Kenya, September, 1998.

      Athi River Kenya, September, 1998. . Größe 34 x 37,5 cm. Signierte und datierte Feldstudie in Blei mit Darstellungen des afrikanischen Vogels aus unterschiedlichen Perspektiven, teils mit angelegtem, teils mit aufgestelltem Kopfgefieder. Mit handschriftlicher Widmung an Werner und Petra Peters und Empfangsdatierung auf Rückseite. Tadellos erhalten. Offensichtlich im Rahmen der Arbeiten Coopers für seine zweite große Publikation zu den nur in Afrika beheimateten Turako-Arten (A Natural History of the Musophagidae, 2002) entstandene, sehr fein gezeichnete Feldstudie, angefertigt in Kenia. – Originale Coopers tauchen äußerst selten im Handel auf, da die meisten Vorzeichnungen zu seinen Illustrationswerken geschlossen an Bibliotheken, in einem Fall auch an einen Privatsammler, verkauft wurden (u.a. an die Australische Nationalbibliothek und die Regierung Papua-Neuguineas). Cooper galt bereits frühzeitig als einer der bedeutendsten zeitgenössischen Vogelmaler der Welt – „if not the best“ (Sir David Attenborough). Er sah sich nicht zu Unrecht in der Nachfolge John Goulds, entwickelte aber fern akademischer Ausbildungen seinen eigenen Stil in Auseinandersetzung mit der Goldenen Ära der Vogelmalerei und anhand unmittelbarer Naturbeobachtung. Cooper hat Zeit seines Lebens nur drei Ausstellungen seiner Malereien abgehalten, die erste war nach 1 Stunde und 10 Minuten ausverkauft, die letzte im Jahr 2013 innerhalb von 11 Minuten. Feldstudien in Blei sind für mich im Handel der letzten vierzig Jahre überhaupt nicht nachweisbar und dürften von Cooper, der es sich zum Ziel gesetzt hatte, jedes neue Bild zu höherer Perfektion zu treiben als das vorhergehende, als geradezu intime Einblicke in den künstlerischen Entstehungsprozess nur an engste Freunde abgegeben worden sein, wie dies auch der Fall mit vorliegender Arbeit ist. – An english description can be supplied upon request!

        Snowflake Bentley.

      Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston 1998 - First edition of this Caldecott Medal award-winning book about Wilson Bentley, the first known photographer of snowflakes. Oblong quarto, original boards. Signed by both Jacqueline Briggs Martin and Mary Azarian, who has drawn a picture of a cottage with hills. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Most children are captivated by snow, but how many go on to make it their lifework? This beautiful biography, winner of the 1999 Caldecott Medal, tells the true story of a Vermont farm boy who was mesmerized by snowflakes. Wilson Bentley was fascinated by the six-sided frozen phenomena, and once he acquired a microscope with a camera, his childhood preoccupation took on a more scientific leaning. Bentley spent his life taking countless exquisite photographs (many that are still used in nature photography today), examining the tiny crystals and their delicate, mathematical structures. Jacqueline Briggs Martin tells this tale with simple, graceful prose that will engage children's imaginations. Edifying and snowflake-scattered sidebars offer more information about Bentley's methods and snowflake science. The artwork of Mary Azarian, whose 19th-century hand-press illustrations decorate the charming Barn Cat, shines once again in Snowflake Bentley, with woodcuts that reveal an appreciation for detail as well as for the man who loved snow.

        Derek Mahon, Poet - Dublin, 1998.

      Ireland. 1998 - Original, Vintage Photograph on archival paper. Image: 18,5 cm x 27 cm / Framed: 41,5 cm x 48,5 cm. Very Rare vintage photograph of the rather shy Derek Mahon, from the library and personal archive of irish photographer John Minihan. With John's copyright-stamp verso. Signed and titled by John Minihan. Beautifully framed. John Minihan is an Irish photographer, born in Dublin in 1946 and raised in Athy, County Kildare. At the age of 12 he was brought to live in London, and went on to become an apprentice photographer with the Daily Mail. At the age of 15 he won the Evening Standard amateur photography competition. At 21 he became the youngest staff photographer for the Evening Standard. For thirty years he remained in London, returning every year to his hometown of Athy to record the people and their daily lives. The work of Minihan in Athy makes up a large part of his canon. Minihan began taking photos in Athy when he was 16. The photos are an attempt to document the lives of the ordinary people of the town in their day to day business and also in times of joy and sadness, notably during the wake of a woman called Katy Tyrrell. In between documenting Athy on visits home, Minihan continued his career on Fleet Street, which included the iconic snap of the 19-year-old Lady Diana Spencer in the garden of the nursery at which she worked, the morning sun to her back, her legs in silhouette through her skirt. Diana had just been announced as the Prince of Wales's love interest and photographers raced to take her photo, Minihan having the fortune to turn up first. Over the years Minihan developed a close relationship with many writers and his photographs of Samuel Beckett show a particular affinity between the two men. Minihans photos of Beckett are some of his best known, one in particular is described as one of the greatest photos of the twentieth century. William S. Burroughs once referred to Minihan as "a painless photographer". Minihan is perhaps best known for his photographs of Samuel Beckett. Minihan first expressed a desire to photograph Beckett in 1969, following Becketts winning of the Nobel Prize for literature, having noticed that all the available photos of Beckett were of a poor quality; 'We were running a story but discovered there were only two very vague images of Beckett taken many years before. It was like he didn't exist - that was the moment I decided I wanted to meet this man and take his photograph.' Minihan first encountered Beckett in London in 1980, while Beckett was working on a production of one of his own plays, Endgame. Minihan met Beckett in the Hyde Park hotel and showed him some of his photos of Athy to break the ice. The two met on a number of occasions over the next few years, but it was not until 1985 that they met in Paris. They arranged to meet in the restaurant of the Hotel PLM, a regular haunt of Beckett. At ten to five, with the light fading, Minihan took the photo that would go on to be called by some as the photograph of the twentieth century. John Calder credited Minihan with capturing, 'the introspective, infinitely sad gaze of a man looking into the abyss of the world's woes'. Among his numerous photographic publications are Photographs: Samuel Beckett (1995); Shadows from the Pale, Portrait of an Irish Town (1996); and An Unweaving of Rainbows, Images of Irish Writers, 1996. He is currently a freelance photographer specialising in 'the arts'. His book of photographs of Samuel Beckett was published in 1995. His photographs of Athy have been exhibited throughout the world. He was given the freedom of Athy in 1990. Minihan currently lives and works in West Cork. Minihan's many exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world include the Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro, 1984; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris 1986; the National Portrait Gallery, London 1987/8 and the October Gallery, London 1990 as well as the Guinness Hop Store, Dublin 1991.

        Pearse Hutchinson.

      Dublin. 1998 - Original Photograph on archival paper. Image: 20 cm x 30 cm / Framed: 38,5 cm x 48,5 cm. From the library and personal archive of irish photographer John Minihan. Titled and signed by John Minihan verso. Beautifully framed. Pearse Hutchinson (1927 – 14 January 2012) was an Irish poet, broadcaster and translator. Hutchinson was born in Glasgow. His father, Harry Hutchinson, a Scottish printer whose own father had left Dublin to find work in Scotland, was Sinn Féin treasurer in Glasgow and was interned in Frongoch in 1919–21. His mother, Cathleen Sara, was born in Cowcaddens, Glasgow, of emigrant parents from Donegal. She was a friend of Constance Markievicz. In response to a letter from Cathleen, Éamon de Valera found work in Dublin for Harry as a clerk in the Labour Exchange, and later he held a post in Stationery Office. Pearse was five years old when the family moved to Dublin, and was the last to be enrolled in St. Enda's School before it closed. He then went to school at the Christian Brothers, Synge Street where he learnt Irish and Latin. One of his close friends there was the poet and literary critic John Jordan. In 1948 he attended University College Dublin where he spent a year and a half, learning Spanish and Italian. Having published some poems in The Bell in 1945, his poetic development was greatly influenced by a 1950 holiday in Spain and Portugal. A short stop en route at Vigo brought him into contact for the first time with the culture of Galicia. Later, in Andalusia, he was entranced by the landscape and by the works of the Spanish poets Lorca, Prados and Cernuda: "That early September of 1950," he would later write, "the light walked for me as it never had before, and I walked through the light I'd always longed for". In 1951 he left Ireland again, determined to go and live in Spain. Unable to get work in Madrid, as he had hoped, he travelled instead to Geneva, where he got a job as a translator with the International Labour Office, which brought him into contact with Catalan exiles, speaking a language then largely suppressed in Spain. An invitation by a Dutch friend led to a visit to the Netherlands, in preparation for which he taught himself Dutch. He returned to Ireland in 1953, and he became interested in the Irish language poetry of writers such as Piaras Feiritéar and Aonghus Fionn Ó Dálaigh, and published a number of poems in Irish in the magazine Comhar in 1954. The same year he travelled again to Spain, this time to Barcelona, where he learnt the Catalan and Galician languages, and got to know Catalan poets such as Salvador Espriu and Carles Riba. With the British poet P. J. Kavanagh, he organised a reading of Catalan poetry in the British Institute. He went home to Ireland in 1957 but returned to Barcelona in 1961, and continued to support Catalan poets. An invitation by the publisher Joan Gili to translate some poems by Josep Carner led to the publication of his first book, a collection of thirty of Carner's poems in Catalan and English, in 1962. A project to publish Hutchinson's translation of Espriu's La Pell de brau (The Bull-skin), fell through some years later. Some of the poems from this project are included in the collection Done into English. In 1963, his first collection of original poems in English, Tongue Without Hands (the title a quotation from the Spanish epic El Cid), was published by Dolmen Press in Ireland. In 1967, having spent nearly ten years altogether in Spain, Hutchinson returned to Ireland, making a living as a poet and journalist writing in both Irish and English. In 1968, a collection of poems in Irish, Faoistin Bhacach (A Lame Confession), was published. Expansions, a collection in English, followed in 1969. Friend Songs (1970) was a new collection of translations, this time of medieval poems originally written in Galaicoportuguese. In 1972 Watching the Morning Grow, a new collection of original poems in English, came out, followed in 1975 by another, The Frost Is All Over

        Snowflake Bentley.

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1998. First edition of this Caldecott Medal award-winning book about Wilson Bentley, the first known photographer of snowflakes. Oblong quarto, original boards. Signed by both Jacqueline Briggs Martin and Mary Azarian, who has drawn a picture of a cottage with hills. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Most children are captivated by snow, but how many go on to make it their lifework? This beautiful biography, winner of the 1999 Caldecott Medal, tells the true story of a Vermont farm boy who was mesmerized by snowflakes. Wilson Bentley was fascinated by the six-sided frozen phenomena, and once he acquired a microscope with a camera, his childhood preoccupation took on a more scientific leaning. Bentley spent his life taking countless exquisite photographs (many that are still used in nature photography today), examining the tiny crystals and their delicate, mathematical structures. Jacqueline Briggs Martin tells this tale with simple, graceful prose that will engage children's imaginations. Edifying and snowflake-scattered sidebars offer more information about Bentley's methods and snowflake science. The artwork of Mary Azarian, whose 19th-century hand-press illustrations decorate the charming Barn Cat, shines once again in Snowflake Bentley, with woodcuts that reveal an appreciation for detail as well as for the man who loved snow.

Edmond Moore Hamilton (1904-1977) is credited with writing, in 1936, the first hardcover compilation of what would come to be known as the science fiction genre, "The Horror of the Asteriod and Other Tales of Planetary Horror". This volume is a collection of three stories from the fragile pulp pages of Magic Carpet and Weird Tales magazines, and is the first hardbound edition of the stories. It features original artwork by 1940's Weird Tales illustrator Jon Arfstrom as well as an introduction by Edmond Hamilton's longtime friend, Ray Bradbury. Also included is an autobiographical article by Hamilton from the January 1934 fanzine, Fantasy Magazine (N.B., some of the above info from the Press' web site). ***DESCRIPTION: Bound in black cloth with gilt decoration and lettering on the spine designed to match the Arkham House editions of Robert E. Howard's "Skullface and Others" and William Hope Hodgson's "The House on the Borderlands", plain endpapers, pictorial limitation page serving as frontispiece, vignette of a creature on the title page, octavo size (just under 9" tall), pagination: (i-viii) being the preliminaries, (i)-iv being the introduction by Ray Bradbury, 2 blanks (v-vi), (1)-219, blank (220), colophon (221).

Dedica autografa con disegno originale di Renato Guttuso (Inscription with an original drawing signed by the Guttuso). Molto buono (Very Good). . Prima edizione (First Edition). . Il disegno originale di Renato Guttuso alla prima pagina bianca del volume raffigura una colomba. La colomba riprende il tema assai noto di Picasso, a cui Guttuso era legato da profonda amicizia e ammirazione e che manifestava sovente, raccontando degli incontri suoi e della moglie Mimise con il Maestro in Provenza. Un disegno praticamente identico (indirizzato però a Luigi de Conciliis è riprodotto nel volume ''Arte a Roma negli anni Sessanta. Una collezione'', Allemandi 1998).

        Frank O. Gehry: The Complete Works.

      New York: Monacelli Press, 1998. First edition.Quarto, original cloth. Signed by Frank Gehry on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. One of the world's great architects, Frank O. Gehry has produced an astonishing body of work over the past forty years. This pioneering designer continues to receive worldwide praise from both peers and critics as the most talented and influential architect working today. With the artistry of a sculptor and the brilliant articulation of an engineer, Gehry creates complex yet sensual buildings that are lyrical constructions defying categorization. Assembled by Francesco Dal Co and Kurt Forster, two of architecture's most important writers and historians, in collaboration with Gehry, this comprehensive, critical documentation -- the first major monograph ever published -- surveys his visionary architecture, from his early houses to his powerful recent works.

        Memories of My Father.

      Maryland:: Shireen M. Holman,, 1998.. Edition of 25. 15 x 11" closed. Woodcuts on handmade paper and screenprints on the Arches Cover. The woodcuts are on handmade paper made of cotton rag and abaca. Towards the end of the beating, Holman added pieces of old hand woven cushion covers to the pulp. These were cushion covers which her parents had used in their home in India. She incorporated the covers' embroidered design into the woodcuts, and added a small remaining piece of the embroidery in each book. Shireen M. Holman: "This is an artist's book of visual memories of my father, who died in 1994. My father immigrated from India to the United States, where he spent the last thirty years of his life. The memories combine both cultures. The walking stick in one of the small books, for example, is a hand-carved stick from the hilly region of Maharashtra. It reminds me of hikes in the mountains; of a picnic interrupted by news that a tiger had beensighted in our vicinity. The bathrobe is one that he wore on cold nights in America. His glasses and chappals (Indian sandals that he wore no matter what the weather) were still beside his bed after he died; books and music represent his interests. The fire in the family room conveys his warmth and love. It makes me think of his deep attachment to family, and the many occasions he created for bringing us all together. I used one of the designs from a carved frieze on our house in India as the border for the woodcuts.
