        Lover Beloved (From the Masnovi) Translated by Zahra Partovi with Etchings by T. Kurahara

      New York: Vincent FitzGerald & Company. 2000. Signed limited edition, one of 50 copies, all on Apta Verge Royal paper by Richard de Bas, hand-numbered and signed in pencil by the artist, T. Kurahara and the translator, Zahra Partovi. Page size: 9-1/2 inches x 6- 1/2 inches; 27pp; + colophon, with four separate suites of etchings by T. Kurahara, each measuring 9-1/2 inches x 38 inches when unfolded (6 folded leaves). Each of the four suites is on paper etched on the reverse - one in gold, one in deep brown, one in lighter brown, and one in brick. These are laid into the bottom of the custom-made blue cloth clamshell box each of the inner trays lined with color-field etch in gold with brick line on brown and reddish-brown with brick line on red. The clamshell box is lettered in palladium gilt on the spine with the title. The book is bound in blue cloth by Zahra Partovi. The binding is a long stitch technique using only one piece of thread - a periwinkle blue, visible on the spine in five different lengths on top and bottom with title stamped in palladium gilt on front panel. There are four original etchings in the bound book as well as the suite. Again, these are color field etchings and the artists has interpreted this part of the MASNOVI by the times of day at which the tale is set: early morning, mid-day, dusk and evening with corresponding colors - moving from light pink to inky blue-lavenders. The text has been printed letterpress by Daniel Keleher at Wild Carrot Letterpress in Aldus by Hermann Zapf in black and in light gray for the Persian calligraphy by Zahra Partovi (from polymer plates). The two color printing is a masterpiece in itself with the moving English translation by Ms. Partovi above and below each line of Persian in gray of Ms. Partovi&#39;s Persian calligraphy. The title page is printed in red and black with the blue thread exposed and knotted in the gutter of the title page. Jerry Kelly has accomplished the calligraphy on the title page. The etchings were editioned at D2 Press by the artist. The moving text cannot be summarized but must be experienced - preferably in the profoundly beautiful setting of this book. It is an aesthetic experience to savor.

        La Peste

      Paris: Gallimard. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Fine/Fine. FIRST EDITION, SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY CAMUS; one of 2000 copies of Alfa Navarre. Inscribed on half-title: "au Reverend Père Dubarle / avec la confiance / Albert Camus". Dubarle was a prominent critic who wrote several studies of Camus&#39;s work. "When The Plague was first published in 1947, the majority of French critics greeted it as an allegorical presentation, not only of la condition humaine in general, but also of the particular experience of the German occupation... Yet it would be an extremely limiting interpretation to see in The Plague only the description of a single historical experience. The struggle against plague and occupation are part of a wider struggle, not only against the physical evil inherent in the world, but also against the evil which men, by their blindness and indifference as well as by their cruelty, do to one another" (Philip Thody). La Peste, Camus&#39;s second novel, is perhaps his most effective demonstration of two of the central themes of his work, namely personal morality and the "man in revolt". Paris: Gallimard, 1947. Octavo, original wrappers; glassine; custom box. Book slightly cocked with a little bit of toning to spine; pages a little toned (as usual). An extremely well-preserved copy in original wrappers. Rare inscribed.

        ABECEDA [Alphabet]

      Prague: J. Otto. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS, one of 2000 copies printed, of one of the most important and influential books of European modernism. Illustrated with 25 black and white photomontages. "The 1926 book Alphabet (Abeceda) is a landmark achievement in European modernism. Its frequent reproduction in exhibition catalogues and scholarly articles has made it a key symbol of Devetsil (1920-ca. 1931), the Czech artists&#39; collective within whose ranks the book was conceived, and its importance is increasingly measured in international terms as well. The book consists of a series of rhymed quatrains by Devetsil poet Vitezslav Nezval, titled and ordered according to the letters of the Latin alphabet. Facing each set of verses is a Constructivist photomontage layout by Karel Teige, a painter turned typographer who was also Devetsil&#39;s spokesperson and leading theorist. Teige developed his graphic design around photographs of dancer and choreographer Milada (Milca) Mayerova, a recent affiliate of the group, who had performed a stage version of "Alphabet" to accompany a recitation of the poem at a theatrical evening in Nezval&#39;s honor in April 1926... The project to create a new alphabet epitomizes the proselytizing attitude of avant-gardists in various fields in the years after World War I. From Dada poetry to Constructivist architecture and design, from calls to overhaul theater to revolutions in literary theory, a panoply of experiments took the alphabet as their model or target and disclosed the potency of this elementary linguistic structure as a trope for creative renewal and social revolution. With its large print, childlike verses, and an instructional sequence that matches a single letter in text and image on every page spread, Alphabet presents itself as the class reader for that internationally sponsored course in universal reeducation." (Matthew S. Witkovsky, "Staging language: Milca Mayerova and the Czech book Alphabet"). "An important landmark of the Czech Avant-Garde and ... one of the first conceptual artists&#39; books"; an "important book which attempted to challenge both conventional artistic hierarchies and class distinctions with an art that could be equally embraced by a professor or a street cleaner" (The Photobook). ABECEDA [Alphabet]. Design by Karel Teige. Photographs by Karel Paspa. Prague: J. Otto, 1926. Quarto (298 x 232mm), original printed wrappers. Wrappers lightly soiled, minute archival repairs at head and tail of spine. An exceptionally good copy, particularly rare in this condition.

Her books have sold over two billion copies in the English language and another billion in over 45 foreign languages (as of 2003). As an example of her broad appeal, she is the all-time best-selling author in France, with over 40 million copies sold in French (as of 2003) versus 22 million for Emile Zola, the nearest contender. She is famously known as the &#39;Queen of Crime&#39; and is, arguably, the most important and innovative writer in the development of the English mystery novel.

Arion uses the letterpress equipment of the famed Grabhorn Press, type cast and composed on the premises, and an in-house book bindery--in conjunction with 21st century digital technology--to produce works crafted in the finest tradition of the private press movement. In the illuminated version we are offering here, this vast, handsomely produced work of scripture is among a handful of the most impressive and notable private press books to be issued in recent decades. Created by Arion Press founder and publisher Andrew Hoyem and his crew of eight craftsmen, and printed and bound by hand at the press&#39; San Francisco workshop, this may be the last Bible to be printed by letterpress from metal type. Hoyem, who apprenticed at the Grabhorn Press, founded Arion in 1974 to continue the tradition of fine private press printing, and his output of 88 works has included a number of highlights, such as the 1979 folio edition of Melville&#39;s "Moby Dick" illustrated with 100 woodcuts by Barry Moser and the 2002 printing of "Paradise Lost" with accompanying portfolio of illustrations by William Blake. In 1989, he acquired Mackenzie & Harris, the oldest and largest surviving metal type foundry in the United States, and this division of Arion produced the 16-point Romulus type used in our Bible, a face described in the prospectus as characterized by "graceful lines and clarity of character recognition." The red initial letters at the beginning of each book of the Bible were created by noted Adobe font designer Sumner Stone, and our copy is one of the specials in which the letters were embellished with abstract geometrical designs resembling panes in a stained glass window, all colored by hand and illuminated with burnished gold by Arion artists. In preparing this opus, Hoyem studied three of the great folio Bibles: the 1532 Latin Bible of Robert Estienne, John Baskerville&#39;s English Bible of 1763, and the Oxford Lectern Bible, designed by Bruce Rogers and published in 1935. Arion&#39;s is the only fine press lectern bible to be produced since the Rogers work, and it carries a great tradition of grand printed Bibles as well as fine typography and bookmaking into the 21st century.

        Faksimile - Buch der Welt . Die sächsische Weltchronik. Faksimile und Kommentarband ( 2 Bde.).

      4°, (31 x 22,5 cm) 330 originalgetreu faks. Seitenm 500 farb. Miniaturen., Faksimile: Ganzleder- Rindslederbd. m. 2 Messingschliessen. Kommentarband in OHLdr. Mit beiliegendem Wegweiserheft (30 S.)., Tadell. VERGRIFFEN! Exempl. 23 von 980 arab. Num. Exemplaren. Die älteste deutschsprachige Weltchronik in Prosa. Der Bogen der Geschichte, präsentiert in diesem prachtvollen Codex, spannt sich von der Erschaffung der Welt, die der Chronist übrigens auf den 18. März datiert, und der Erschaffung Adams und Evas über die Geschehnisse des Alten und Neuen Testamentes, die wechselvolle Geschichte der Antike und die Stürme der Völkerwanderung bis zu Friedrich II., dem letzten Stauferkaiser. Am Anfang steht der Brudermord Kains. Und zu Beginn der römischen Geschichte tötet auch Romulus seinen Bruder. Mit der Geburt Christi ist zwar eine neue Zeit des Heils angebrochen, doch nüchtern protokolliert das Buch der Welt den Weg der Menschheit, der durch ein Meer von Blut und Tränen führt. Ein katastrophaler Tiefpunkt ist erreicht mit dem Zerwürfnis zwischen Papst und Kaiser im Investiturstreit, als eine ganze Welt aus den Fugen gerät. Das besondere Kennzeichen dieser herrlichen Bilderchronik ist das präzise Zusammenspiel von Text und Bildgestaltung. Die Illustrationen stehen genau neben den dazupassenden Zeilen. Durch die Auswahl der Themen werden die entscheidenden Erzählmomente der Handlung festgehalten. Auf diese Weise entsteht ein lebendiger Bildkommentar. Er beleuchtet den Text und faßt ihn zugleich zusammen. Dank der klug ausgewählten Bildmotive kann sich der Betrachter mit einem Blick den gesamten Erzählverlauf vergegenwärtigen. Die Miniaturen sind hier also nicht nur zur Ausschmückung gedacht; sie stellen zugleich unterhaltsame Gedächtnisstützen dar. Bei der Herstellung dieses Geschichtsbuches müssen sorgfältige Schreiber und einfallsreiche Buchmaler Hand in Hand gearbeitet haben. Die ganze Welt in einem Buch Schon immer träumte man von einer "Zeitmaschine", die den Besuch aller welthistorischen Höhepunkte ermöglichen könnte etwa einen Besuch bei Alexander dem Großen oder Friedrich Barbarossa. Schon in der Antike fand man einen Weg: Die Gattung der Weltchronik war erfunden. So konnte man die gesamte Geschichte "mit nach Hause" nehmen. In frühchristlicher Zeit sahen die Schriftsteller die Weltgeschichte als planvolle und zielgerichtete Entwicklung, bei der immer die Hand Gottes im Spiel war. Das Grundmuster für diese Geschichtsauffassung war in der Bibel vorgegeben. Im Geschichtsdenken des mittelalterlichen Europa tat sich eine ungeahnte Fernsicht mit einem gewaltigen Panorama großer Reiche auf: Die großen Autoren des Frühmittelalters wie etwa Eusebius, Hieronymus, Augustinus und Orosius sorgten dafür. Aus ihren Werken erwuchs ein über tausend Jahre lang gültiges Deutungssystem. Die großen Universalchroniken in Latein entstanden auf dieser Basis. Doch die Laien hatten zu dieser gemeineuropäischen Vatersprache von Kirche und Wissenschaft keinen Zugang. Im 13. Jahrhundert war es endlich soweit: Im niederdeutschen Sprachraum, der schon das Rechtsbuch des Eike von Repgow, den Sachsenspiegel, hervorgebracht hatte, entstand eines der erstaunlichsten Werke der europäischen Buchkunst: die Sächsische Weltchronik. Der Gothaer Codex ist die älteste und prachtvollste Überlieferung der Sächsischen Weltchronik. Bis zum 17. Jahrhundert wurde die Handschrift in Wittenberg aufbewahrt, bevor sie nach Gotha gelangte. Bewegt wie die darin geschilderte Geschichte war auch das Schicksal der Handschrift in unserem Jahrhundert. Als Kriegsbeute von der Sowjetarmee nach St. Petersburg verschleppt, kehrte der Codex erst nach längerer Zeit an seinen heutigen Standort zurück. Der Kommentarband Zum ersten Mal wird die Gothaer Handschrift hier in ihrer ganzen Bedeutung untersucht. Die beteiligten Experten: Prof. Dr. Hubert Herkommer, Professor für deutsche Literatur des Mittelalters, Universität Bern; Dr. Renate Kroos, Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte, München; Prof. Dr. Rudolf Große, Professor für Deutsche Philologie, Universität Leipzig; Dr. Karin Schneider, Handschriftensammlung der Bayerischen Staatsbibliothek München; Dr. Maria Mitscherling, Leiterin der Handschriftenabteilung der Forschungs- und Landesbibliothek zu Gotha.
