        Tender Buttons. Etchings by Susan Weil.

      Vincent FitzGerald & Co., New York 1999 - One of 50 copies, all on hand-made papers, each signed by the artist, Susan Weil. 76pp; page size: 11-1/2 inches x 13-1/2 inches. Bound by Zahra Partovi and Priscilla Spitler: peach Dieu Donne hand-made paper with 5 chine colle original etchings by Susan Weil that are Cubist portraits of Gertrude Stein (recognizable features, some set askew, title in red in calligraphy by Jerry Kelly across front panel purple silk spine, binding signatures sewn Coptic style with additional structural feature of extended hollow attached to text spine and to the separate spine piece of the cover allowing the book to open completely flat, housed in two color purple silk clamshell box, title in gold gilt on spine in calligraphy by Jerry Kelly, new. Susan Weil's first book with Vincent FitzGerald, EPIPHANIES by James Joyce (1986) is a joint effort that succeeds completely. Her fascination with words and word-play, incorporating them into visual images that have a sense of motion that is more than simply turning pages, was further explored and polished with publication of GIACOMO JOYCE (1989). It seems inevitable that she would rise to the challenge of Gertrude Stein's TENDER BUTTONS, first published in Paris in 1914, in which Stein attempted to verbalize with prose poems the cubist art of her circle in Paris. According to Weil, Stein, with this work, "invented verbal cubism." In this edition, beautifully printed by Daniel Keleher in Meridien type designed by Adrian Frutiger, the text is shaped by the placement of Weil's etchings, often in the reverse when the plate marks leave "cubes" as a residue on the verso. The etchings were pulled by Aleksandar Duravcevic, Kelly Driscoll and Vincent FitzGerald. As with all books from Vincent FitzGerald & Company, this is a subtle book. At once immediately accessible, appreciation for its complexity grows with opening and reading / viewing this work of art. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The New York Times Acrostic Omnibus Volume 5

      New York: Random House, 1999 New York: Random House, 1999. First Edition. Quarto, illustrated wraps, 200 pp. with 200 puzzles, + solution pp. As New; flawless. Remarkably, there is even barely any toning to the newsprint pages, in the years that have passed since publication. Likely the best copy you'll ever see - if you ever see another at all - of this exceedingly scarce opus of the incomparable Thomas Middleton. Though Cox & Rathvun occasionally come out with very admirable smaller collections of "acrostics" (more correctly, "anacrostics"), there is still no match for Middleton's works, copies of all of which are now getting so scarce. Every puzzle is a true treat, and one of the best brain-preservers and strengtheners you will ever find - especially his cryptic anacrostics. If only there were an infinite source of THOSE. True first edition; a very rare piece for the puzzler, in any condition - and this one is in museum-quality shape. LANAC

      New York City, NY: Harcourt Brace, 1999. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: Harcourt Brace, 1999. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 51 pages. The author&#39;s illustrated tale. The Signed First Edition. Precedes and should not be confsued with all other subsequent editions. Removable "Signed By Author" sticker pasted on the DJ spine. Published in a very small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The Signed First Edition is now rare. A tenderly ironic little book as only Saramago could have written it, it is beautifully complemented with illustrations by the Caldecott Award-winning artist Peter Sis. Presents Jose Saramago&#39;s "O Conto da Ilha Desconhecido" in a felicitous English translation. "A man went to knock at the king&#39;s door and said, Give me a boat. The king&#39;s house had many other doors, but this was the door for petitions. Since the king spent all of his time sitting by the door for favors (favors being offered to the king), whenever he heard someone knocking at the door for petitions, he would pretend not to hear. Why the petitioner required a boat, where he was bound for, and who volunteered to crew for him, the reader will discover in this delightful fable, a philosophic love story worthy of Swift or Voltaire" (Publisher&#39;s blurb). The man travels with a cleaning woman, and with the most delicate touch, Saramago has given us a parable of Christianity: The king is God, the man is Jesus, the woman is Mary Magdalene, and the island is freedom. An absolute "must-have" title for Jose Saramago collectors. <b><i> This copy is one of the Signed First Edition, indicated as such on the removable spine sticker, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in black fountain pen on the title page by Jose Saramago. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. This title is a modern classic. This is one of very few signed copies of the First American Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Among the Nobel Laureates and other great writers of our time, Saramago&#39;s signature was probably the most difficult to get because he rarely left Lanzarote, the island he moved to at the height of his fame. Now that he is dead, he isn&#39;t signing any more copies. And yet, signed copies of his books, while not exactly cheap, remain under-priced as compared to those of say, Gabriel Garcia Marquez or Cormac McCarthy. While they are great writers, Saramago will be regarded by posterity as a greater writer than both of them, and there is no British or American novelist of the last fifty years, living or dead, who comes close to Saramago&#39;s achievement (except, according to Harold Bloom, for Philip Roth at his best). A rare signed copy thus. </B></i> Regarded by Harold Bloom as one of the two greatest novelists of our time (the other being Philip Roth), Jose Saramago will be read as probably the greatest European novelist of the last fifty years. Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1998. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER JOSE SARAMAGO TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0151005958.

        Large Mass Hierarchy from a Small Extra Dimension" in Physical Review Letters 83 Issue 17, 25 October 1999, pp. 3370 - 3373 and "An Alternative to Compactification" in Physical Review Letters 83 Issue 23, 6 December 1999, pp. 4690-4693

      FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF TWO OF THE MOST CITED PAPERS IN THE HISTORY OF PHYSICS. In these papers, Randall and Sundrum show that infinite extra dimension and weakness of gravity can be explained with an extra dimension. "String theory extra dimensions have traditionally been considered to be small and unobservable. Randall and Sundrum introduced an alternative in these two papers in which one of the additional dimensions is "warped." In their approach, the strong, weak, and electromagnetic forces are confined to three dimensions (on a 3-brane, a three-dimensional "membrane," at a specific location in the other dimensions), but gravity propagates in the warped space as well. Their work differs from most of the rest of string theory in that they predict quantum effects due to gravity that may soon be testable by the LHC. To parse the theoretical disunification of physics in disparate gravitational force-strength Lisa Randall and Raman Sundrum posited the existence of extra-dimensional brane-layers actively leaking energy fluctuations into our own universe; with mathematical supports, Randall and Sundrum illustrated their idea&#39;s compatibility with existing cosmological valuations and astrophysical data. Lisa Randall was the first tenured woman in physics at Princeton, as well as the first tenured theorist at Harvard and MIT. Additionally, she is the most cited theoretical physicist in the world.

Published on the occasion of the 1999 exhibition Peter Beard: Fifty Years of Portraits, curated by Peter T. Tunney, at the Fahey/Klein Gallery, Los Angeles. Out of print. CONDITION: Fine. A Near Mint copy. From the publisher: "Throughout his remarkable life, photographer, naturalist, and raconteur Peter Beard has befriended and photographed some of the most prominent figures of our times. Portraiture is woven into the fabric of all of Beard's work, yet to date this relationship has never been carved out and explored. From his earliest attempts at expression as a child to the mania for travel and adventure that overtook Beard as a young man, and onward to Beard's most recent work on assignment, portraiture is a central thread of Beard's career. Beard's 'portraits,' however, rarely conform to the traditional format of this genre. Instead, they embody spontaneity, the moments shared with intimate friends, and the adventurous lives and experiences to which he has long been attracted. A vital chronicler of our times, he has created memorable images of such icons as Picasso, Francis Bacon, Karen Blixen, Andy Warhol, Truman Capote, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Salvador Dali, and Mick Jagger, along with the last great safari hunters, such as J.A. Hunter, Phillip Percival, and Cape-to-Cairo Grogan." Signed by Author [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
