        The Headless Bust (Signed Limited Edition with Bahhum Bug!)

      New York: Harcourt Brace & Company, 1999. First edition. Hardcover. Fine/very good +. 7 1/2" square hardcover book with slipcase. Stated first edition. One of the oddly rare limited edition books by Gorey from later in his publishing career. Despite what would seem to be a fairly ample limitation of 750 numbered copies (plus 26 lettered), this edition is truly uncommon. Especially when it comes with the Bahhum Bug Doll - a four-armed bean bag creation by Gorey. The book is copy 238 of 750 hand-numbered and SIGNED copies. Fine condition in illustrated boards. The dustwrapper is clipped, but otherwise is in fine condition. Both book and jacket slide into an accompanying cloth covered slipcase. Slipcase shows a bit of dust soiling, but overall in great condition.

        POESIS 2.0. CD-ROM.

      ZANICHELLI 1999 Il cd-rom "Poesis 2" comprende un archivio di circa 350000 versi, cui si accede mediante un software originale di interrogazione; suo scopo è agevolare le ricerche lessicali nell'ambito dei testi della poesia latina - arcaica, classica, tardoantica e cristiana - e della loro secolare ricezione presso le letterature dell'Occidente; ogni occasionale inchiesta del lettore curioso di fronte a una citazione immersa nella sua memoria, come la sistematica indagine diacronica o la raffinata analisi formale dello specialista, potrà ottenere da questo strumento un ausilio indispensabile e una promozione talora imprevedibile nei loro sviluppi. In questa nuova versione per Windows, oltre agli attesi miglioramenti della grafica, è stata effettuata una profonda revisione tecnica del sistema, la cui portata risulterà evidente sin da una prima prova di interrogazione. Gli archivi elettronici sono stati a loro volta integrati da ampie acquisizioni, soprattutto di poesia non dattilica di epoca arcaica e repubblicana (in massima parte costituita dalle commedie di Plauto e Terenzio e dai frammenti degli altri autori scenici) oltre che da numerosi incrementi ai testi di età più tarda; attraverso "Poesis 2" si viene ora ammessi alla lettura cursoria e alla ricerca verbale entro una banca dati contenente l'intera produzione in versi della letteratura latina antica, dalle reliquie dei carmina Saliaria fino a Venanzio Fortunato, Isidoro di Siviglia, Eugenio di Toledo. Alla confezione è allegata la ristampa anastatica de "Il lessico classico. Lessico ragionato dell'antichità classica" di Federico Lubker dall'edizione originale del 1898. volume in Italiano EAN: 9788808094216

        Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

      New York: Scholastic Press, 1999 First American edition, first printing. Signed by the author in black ink on the title page. A near fine copy, with light wear to the spine ends, a hint of wear to the corners, with a former owner's signature on the front flyleaf, otherwise fresh pages; in the original unclipped dust jacket designed by Mary Grandpré, with some very minor wear to the edges, bookseller's sticker to front flap, very small stain on the verso without affecting the otherwise bright and unfaded jacket panels. A clean and attractive copy of the third book in the Harry Potter series. A somewhat pivotal novel in the series, The Prisoner of Azkaban received high critical acclaim upon its release, but was published before the series reached the level of popularity and cult following that it has today. In his third year at Hogwarts, Harry and his friends search for the villainous outlaw Sirius Black. Unlike the first two novels, the book does not end with a cut-and-dry triumph over evil, but rather begins to pose the question of how media portals and popular perception affects whether someone is considered good or bad- a notion that will reoccur and becoming increasingly central to the storyline as the series progresses.. Signed by Author. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included. Illus. by Grandpré, Mary.

        Tramp Art: A Folk Art Phenomenon

      Stewart Tabori & Chang. Paperback. 1556709056 Dust jacket condition: VG. Text free of underlining, writing and highlighting. Tramp art holds a unique place in the canon of American folk art. Primitive yet astoundingly intricate in their construction, these decorative objects are made through a process of layering elaborately notched pieces of wood in order to create ornate and multi-dimensional surfaces. It is most commonly found as boxes, picture frames, and other table-top items, but encompasses full-sized furniture pieces as well. Tramp art was most prevalent during the years of the Great Depression. All of the wood used in its construction is scrap and discard; a craft of itinerant carvers, most of it was made from the wooden cigar boxes of the era. Most fascinating is the fact that there are no written instructions for the construction or Grafting of a piece of tramp art and it doesn't' t appear that there ever were. This is a technique apparently passed on through word of mouth, practical demonstration, and imitation. Helaine Fendelman and Jonathan Taylor have brought together an astounding array of pieces many of them newly discovered, others rare and unique, all of them significant. For the serious collector or fascinated browser, this is the seminal guide to tramp art. 159 pages. We ship our books in CorgiPack mailers except for unusually large books and multiple books orders. CorgiPack mailers are constructed with a B-flute corrugated fiberboard pad which provides cushioning and corner protection in transit. They're also 100% recyclable.

        Ethics for the New Millennium - 1st Edition/1st Printing

      New York: Putnam Publishing Group. Fine in Fine dust jacket. 1999. First Edition; First Printing; Signed by Author. 1/4 Cloth. 1573220256 . An outstanding First Edition, First Printing in unread Fine condition in alike dust-jacket, SIGNED directly on the title page by His Holiness and Nobel Peace Prize winner, the Dalai Lama; Only during a time when we have so little faith in one another, so little confidence in the willingness of others to do what is right, can a strong voice emerge to dispel disillusionment and show us hope. It takes a person of great courage, such as the Dalai Lama, to face these times and say there is hope. There is an argument to be made for basic human goodness. The number of people who spend their lives being violent or dishonest is tiny compared with the number of people-the vast majority we don't hear about-who would wish others only well. According to the Dalai Lama, our survival has depended and will depend on our basic goodness. "Much more effective and important than legislation is our regard for one another's feelings at a simple human level -Here, I refer to the capacity we all have to empathize with one another- to arrive at the inability to bear the sight of another's suffering. " The Dalai Lama presents an ethical system that not only is based on common sense and reason, as opposed to religious dogma or punitive legislation, but has as its goal ultimate happiness for every individual .

      1999 - DOUBLE SIGNED BY GLEN BAXTER. This is one of my greatest treasures, but I am ready to let it move on to another collection where it could be appreciated. I bought it at the Modernism Gallery here in San Francisco on November 20, 2000. It was the preview night of an exhibition of works by the artist Glen Baxter. Here is what you miss when you see Baxter's work reproduced in books or The New Yorker magazine - the originals are sometimes huge & the colors are marvelously textured & rich. They were selling this limited edition book - NUMBER 38 / 500. It had already been signed by Baxter in pencil on the copyright page & dated 2000, but I asked him to please sign it again, in person, & so he did, again in pencil, on the title page, no date this time. (P.S. He is a completely charming Brit.) The book is in a box covered on top in brocade, with a paper plate that has the same image as the title page. The box measures 8.25 x 7 x .75 inches. It is in excellent condition. The book itself is leaved like a Japanese folding screen; the pages are only printed on one side. The illustrations are in black & white. The front & back are in another gorgeous Asian pattern design fabric, different from the cover of the box, covering boards; again there is the paper plate that is the same as the title page. The text is in English & (maybe?) Chinese. In the back, the copyright page is in French. There is also a summary of the text in French opposite the copyright page. This copyright page explains that the 195 copies from 306 - 500 were "exemplaires pour les etoiles et les cochons". (?!) Please do see the photos to get a better sense of this fabulous book. I have taken very good care of it. The book itself is in primo conditon & has aged very handsomely. The end papers are a lusciously textured washi paper of a sage green hue. And the story, one might ask? Well, it has elements of classic Baxteresque humor & mystery - an "English delegation" witnesses the presentation of tofu. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

A Fine copy of the first edition in the Publisher's original sewn blue wrappers and green paper dust jacket, SIGNED BY JOHN ASHBERY on the Limitation Page and SIGNED BY ELIZABETH MURRAY on an original seven-color linoleum cut frontispiece, issued in a Limited Edition of 200 unsigned copies and 26 Lettered copies signed by Ashbery and further signed by Murray on an original seven-color linoleum cut frontispiece. This copy is marked "hc" (for "hors de commerce" -- meaning "out of trade") and thus would have been one of a very few extra copies printed in case any of the 26 lettered copies were flawed. Even the unsigned 200 copies are quite scarce to the market and, of course, the 26 signed lettered copies with the original frontispiece are scarcer still. Hors de commerce copies, as offered here, would be the scarcest of the three. A Fine copy, SIGNED BY JOHN ASHBERY on the Limitation Page and SIGNED BY ELIZABETH MURRAY ON HER ORIGINAL ART. QUITE SCARCE.

Fine, pristine. With an intense and beautiful sci-fi mood, Salwowski's cover far exceeds those of several other editions of the famed novel. Please see scans (note that the scan of the book itself is provided for reference. The book is not part of this item). Two small scratches (see scan). Another wow by Salwowski. Big and striking, a room-center eye-catcher hanging on the wall - it is, in fact, hanging on mine right now, with another Mark Salwowski piece. Frame is not included, though.

        Cryptonomicon (with decoder)

      New York: Avon Books, 1999 New York: Avon Books, 1999. First Edition, with decoder key. Octavo, 918 pp. Fine book in a fine jacket. Probably the most collectible form of the singular Neal Stephenson's fourth genre novel. The rare decoder key is present here. It has been (as per design) detached along the perforations, and the original owner did attempt pencil guesses in the circles. These are erasable, if you desire to do that. Otherwise the key, the template and the little folder-with-rune to enclose it are in fine condition, as is the book itself and the jacket. Another uncategorizable tech-adventure from the master of what it is he does, in a handsome and, with the decoder, very rare form. L31 n

        CORNELIS CORNELISZ VAN HAARLEM, A Monograph and Catalogue Raisonné

      Aetas Aurea,Vol. XIII . Cloth bound with dusjacket, as new !! 1999. in 4to. 600 pp. of text, 468 illustrations, including 32 color plates. The monograph of Cornelis Cornelisz van Haarlem (1562-1638) is presented as an adherent of sixteenth-century artistic theory, in particular as taught by Karel van Mander in the so-called Haarlem academy. According to this erudite Flemish immigrant, Dutch artists were shamefully backward with respect to mastery in rendering the nude, the great accomplishment of the modern Italian masters. He must have viewed the art of his younger friend - who had taken his advice and overcome these shortcomings by pursuing a lengthy period of intense study 'from life' - as the ultimate fulfilment of his ambition to elevate Dutch history painting to the level of Italian art. Eight chapters are dedicated to the biography of Cornelis Cornelisz, his triple training as an artist, his artistic development, his training of pupils, his influence on the art of his time, his reputation among contemporaries, and the appreciation of his art through the centuries. A ninth, concluding chapter treats the iconographical aspects of two exceptional commissions which the artist received from the Amsterdam poet Hendrick Laurensz Spieghel, and the programmatic underpinnings of his greatest performance, the decoration of the Prinsenhof in Haarlem. Six appendixes contain original transcriptions of seventy-five documents concerning the artist and his family, including the unique list of art left by Cornelis Cornelisz, as well as other relevant sources. Five catalogues list the complete oeuvre of Cornelis Cornelisz, which comprises 303 paintings, either preserved or known from contemporary sources, a mere thirteen drawings, seven works in oil on paper, five models for prints, and twenty-three prints after his inventions.The catalogues are ordered iconographically, whereas the thirty-two colour plates and 365 plates in black and white are arranged in chronological order.Extensive indexes enhance the accessibility and usefulness of the volume.

        Invisible Cities. Text by Italo Calvino. Translated from the Italian with a new introduction by William Weaver

      San Francisco: Arion Press, 1999. Large 4to, 164pp. Illustrated with twelve drawings of sites and artifacts by Wayne Thiebaud. Bound by Paul Sheet in an anodized aluminum ring binding with U-posts, allowing the leaves to be turned over in sequence. As new. Limited to 400 copies numbered and signed by Wayne Thiebaud. ÒItalo Calvino first published this work in 1972 as Le Citta Invisibili. A tale mixing fantasy, reality, and philosophy, it recounts a long conversation between a young Marco Polo and an aging Kublai Khan. The artist Wayne Thiebaud contributed twelve drawings, with the idea that the images of cities and objects remain almost invisible until the reader takes action. To realize this concept, Andrew Hoyem designed the book with the drawings printed on clear plastic in different ink colours, each matching the colour of the following sheet. The images are revealed only when the transparent sheet is turned back onto the preceding page, a white sheet with printed text. The paper, both coloured and white, is Italian Tiziano, mouldmade at Fabriano mill. The types are Veronese (Monotype and handset) and Twentieth Century (handset). The type (on paper) and the photopolymer plates for the drawings (on mylar) were printed by letterpress.Ó (Ursus Books catalogue).

      New York, London, Toronto: Seven Stories Press,. [1999]. pictorial wrappers.. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#146386). First edition. A presentation copy with signed inscription by Vonnegut to Paul Williams on the half title page: "For my best friend / among the living -- / Paul Williams / Kurt Vonnegut / Dec. 19 1999" [signature and date within a self portrait]. Paul Williams (1948-2013), American music journalist and writer, "created the first national US magazine of rock music criticism CRAWDADDY! in January 1966 on the campus of Swarthmore College with the help of some of his fellow science fiction fans (he had previously put out some science fiction fanzines) ... He was also the author of more than twenty-five books, of which the best-known are OUTLAW BLUES: A BOOK OF ROCK MUSIC (1969), DAS ENERGI (1973), and BOB DYLAN: PERFORMING ARTIST (1990; 1992; 2004), the acclaimed three-part series. Williams was a leading authority on the works of musicians Bob Dylan, Brian Wilson, and Neil Young, and science fiction writers Philip K. Dick (serving as the executor of his literary estate) and Theodore Sturgeon. His last book was The 20th Century's Greatest Hits (a "Top 40" list that includes movies, books & other documents)" (Wikipedia). Vonnegut's piece is a "fictional adventure" in which he "skips back and forth between life and afterlife as if the difference between them were rather slight. In thirty odd 'interviews' ... Vonnegut trips down 'the blue tunnel to the pearly gates' in the guise of a roving reporter for public radio."
