        [Manuscript Archive]: How Crime is Killing America: A Complete Guide to Causes and Cures

      [2001]. Computer generated manuscripts totaling more than 3400pp. Four manuscripts, representing two versions of the text for an unpublished book, plus a comb bound excerpt of the first chapter, a computer printed mock-up for a proposed but unpublished magazine cover and its accompanying editorial. All near fine with a few creases and tiny tears at the edges of some pages.The unpublished manuscript is written by Nathaniel Gilbert, a Connecticut journalist, editor, and public relations professional who has contributed articles to Entrepreneur and Public Relations News. We suspect that the book, a detailed analysis of modern American crime, was being seriously considered for publication in the spring and summer of 2001 before its publication was derailed by the September 11 terrorist attacks which shifted public interest away from domestic concerns such as crime. No surprise the author's subsequently published book Democracide considers the damage the war on terror has caused on several domestic issues, most notably crime prevention.Two manuscripts are free of annotations while the other two are covered with edits, we presume by the author but suspect some may be from an editor. Laid in are two letters from literary agents dated in the spring and summer of 2001 referencing the book. The cover mock-up and editorial appears to be an aborted magazine effort by Gilbert that segued into this book.An extensively researched but unrealized book that captured the state of crime in American at the dawn of the new millennium before the war on terror refocused our collective attention.Manuscripts:• 892pp. With annotation and correction throughout, in pencil on front wrap; "Y2K Edition 164,450 Words plus Notes."• 892pp. With TLS, dated May 21, 2000, from a literary agent retuning this draft and asking for the latest version.• 730pp. With annotation and correction throughout.

The cover for the "Premier Issue" dated November 19, 1995 with a feature story on domestic violence.• Framed copy of the cover in an acrylic frame.

      2001. BASKIN, Leonard. Oresteia. By Aeschylus. Translated by Ted Hughes. Three volumes. [6], 102; [6], 68; [6], 61, [3] pp. Illustrated with 47 full-page woodcuts by Baskin. Folio, bound by Claudia Cohen in half black morocco, red decorated paper over boards, red leather title labels on spines, laid into grey cloth box with black leather title labels on red paper. Northampton: The Gehenna Press, 2001. |~||~||~||~| Limited to 60 copies. This monumental book is the final work of the sculptor, painter and illustrator Leonard Baskin, completed within days of his death in June 2000. The 47 woodcuts are powerful evocations of Baskin's unique vision of the human psychological predicament. One can imagine few better texts for Baskin to illustrate than the tragedies of Aeschylus. This work also represents the final collaboration between two life-long friends, Leonard Baskin and the Poet Laureate of England, Ted Hughes. Hughes supplied a new free verse translation of Aeschylus' Agamemnon, Choephori and The Eumenides, the three plays comprising the Oresteia. The book was conceived, laid-out and illustrated by Baskin. The volumes were set in Bruce Rogers' Centaur and Arrighi types and printed on Italian handmade paper by Arthur Larsen and Dan Keleher in Hadley, Massachusetts. The colophon is signed by Baskin's widow Lisa Unger Baskin and by Ted Hughes' widow Carol Hughes. As new.

        Original Science Fiction Art for The Marquis / Devil's Reign / Hell's Courtesan #2 (II of II) (Guy Davis) / (2): study and final With Burton-signed Copy of the Issue

      2001 Original sepia montone paintings - 2 of them, the study and the final version, which are indeed difficult to tell apart - by the late noted science fiction / fantasy illustrator David W. Burton, who passed away on December 8th of 2011. Both executions are 9" x 12", Fine. Signed and dated, though in a different place on each of the study and the final. There are several other differences of note. Annotations on reverse in each case. Burton's painting is of Guy Davis' offbeat comic book hero, The Marquis, and was the painted study for the pin-up in the back of the 2002 issue, The Marquis / Devil's Reign / Hell's Courtesan #2 II of II (Oni Press, Ltd., 2002) - and is appreciated, and depicted, front and center on Guy Davis' The Marquis webpage . A copy of this issue is included, flat signed by David Burton at his pin-up page and in as new condition as far as my comic-grading experience can tell. See scans (note that the paintings are slightly larger than my scanner). Unframed. Among Burton's other work are his "The World of Barsoom" (hailed by both Danton Burroughs - Edgar Rice Burrough's grandson - and Al Williamson as the best graphic expression of the Barsoomian stories in many years); Mike Hoffman's "Lost Worlds of Science Fiction and Fantasy", #3; "Gladiator", a Phillip Wylie sci-fi novel; an illustration for Robert E. Howard's story, "Almuric", done for Robert E. Howard, Two Gun Raconteur; #8 ; "A Princess of Mars" for the ERBMania site; Love's Golden Embrace (a Charlene Leonard novel); and three Paul O. Williams Pelbar Cycle novels, those being The Breaking of Northwall, The Ends of the Circle, and The Dome in the Forest. l-art

        The Handmade Papers of Japan

      2001. TINDALE, Thomas. The Handmade Papers of Japan. Four volumes, either stitch-bound Japanese style or contained in a folding Chitsu case with ivory clasps; plus envelope of Fibers. Folio, 342 x 280 mm, housed in the original publisher's folding box with ivory clasps. Rutland, Vermont: Tuttle, 1952. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, a superb copy of the classic work on Japanese papermaking, now very rare. Although 250 copies of this book were planned, as few as 150 actually may have been produced. According to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, "The Handmade Papers of Japan is one of the finest studies on Japanese paper; it is replete with specimens, including old and rare papers from the eighth and ninth centuries." Volume I, "The Handmade Papers of Japan," provides the history and description of Japanese papermaking and is accompanied by an envelope containing five different papermaking fibers. Volume II, "Seki Collection," contains 187 specimens from the Nara period (710-93) to the present day. Volume III, "Contemporary Collection," presents 139 full-page specimens and descriptions of modern papers from twenty districts of Japan. Volume IV, "Watermarks," includes twenty pictorial light-and-shade watermarked papers. "The Handmade Papers of Japan" is bound in a Japanese-style binding with hand-stenciled book covers and folding box. The author, an American, was employed as an advisor to the Japanese Civil Service immediately after the end of World War II. In the compilation of the present volumes he was assisted by Yoshikuni Seki, the celebrated Japanese papermaking scholar. Together they worked with the major Japanese papermakers to create the most comprehensive book ever published on Japan's celebrated papermakers and papermaking villages. The foreword was written by Dard Hunter, the world's foremost expert on handmade papers. The book traces the history of paper making in Japan, listing the various papermaking villages, their handmade paper makers, methods, and the materials used. The work contains actual samples of ancient Japanese papers, as well as a collection of 20 especially executed watermarked papers. The eight endpaper stencil illustrations showing the process of hand-made paper making and book covers were all designed and made especially for this book by Keisuke Serizawa, the widely acclaimed Japanese Folk-art artist. This work is considered by many the finest all-around book on paper scholarship. See: Sidney E. Berger's biographical note on Tindale in: The Handmade Papers of Japan: A Biographical Sketch of its Author and an Account of the Genesis and Production of the Book (Bird and Bull Press, 2001).

        Anna Livia Plurabelle

      Verona:: Ampersand / Officina Chimèrea,, 2001.. Edition of 110. 18 x 25 cm. (7.1 x 9.8"); 50 pages. Letterpress printed on paper made by Magnani of Pescia. English text followed by Italian translation by James Joyce and Nino Frank. Etching by Valerio Adami. Slipcased. This version of Anna Livia Plurabelle includes the English original and the Italian reworking that original done by Joyce, who had an intimate knowledge of Italian from his Trieste years, and his good friend the Italian intellectual Nino Franc. This book was printed on the occasion of five American institutions (the Universities of Nevada, Oregon, San Francisco, Utah, and Washington) hosting Ampersand and Officina Chimèrea in the spring of 2001. Afterword: "The decorated paper for the binding was inspired by a 1930s motif and was printed in relief from an original cardboard cut. "The horizontal format and the lack of line justification alternately on the left and on the right are in keeping with the flowing of the riverrun/fluidofiume, mirroring the course of the River Liffey, as well as of the numerous other rivers mentioned in Anna Livia Plurabelle."

        Gargantua in the Vineyard

      San Francisco:: Eastside Editions,, 2001.. Edition of 25. 18 x 18" closed, 18 x 270" extended. Accordion format. A continuous image book made up of 10 separate prints (multiple plates, mixed etching and linocut) joined together into one, as well as a cover image, title page, and colophon. The image area measures 12" x 180" (inches). Printed on handmade Abaca paper. Cloth covered boards with 12 x 12" image of Gargantua inset on front board. Slipcased. Art Hazelwood: "Francois Rabelais (1490-1553) and his satirical writings on the illustrious giants, Gargantua and Pantagruel, were the inspiration for this book of prints. Rabelais was a scholar of erudition, a mocker of manners, a defender of appetites, an adherent of wine, and a champion of laughter." Colophon: "This visual interpretation was inspired by an episode in Book I, Chapter XXVII: Friar John, a monk of considerable thirst, is outraged by the invading army's destruction of the grape harvest. The giant Gargantua and his allies join the battle and drive the enemies of wine, wit and wisdom from the vineyard." David Berona, Image & Narrative "Art Hazelwood: A Graphic Witness of America", 2005: "Gargantua in the Vineyards (2001) is a large color print, consisting of a linocut over two etching plates that measures 12 x 180 inches and folded into an accordion book that was published by Eastside Editions on paper, handmade in the studio. This project was aimed at storytelling within the format of an extended image....The content of this panel focuses on a literary text.… "What is visible, on the first inspection of the individual prints, is the dramatic detail of figures and images and the role that color plays in this striking display. The colors are bold and sharp and do not bleed into one another, which makes the lines in the prints more striking and provide a visual ease as the narrative unfolds. "To appreciate the power of Hazelwood's narrative these prints should be viewed in the entire, scrolling form. The use of analogous color in these prints, the migration of figures and objects from one print to the next print, and the actions of Gargantua such as when he is holding a vat of wine in his hand, blowing away the monk's enemies, or catching a bunch of grapes inside his mouth provides points of narrative continuity." Timothy Hampton, Professor of French and Comparative Literature, University of California at Berkeley, "Rabelais in the Vineyard" 2002: "There is something about laughter that scares authority. Perhaps it is an element of violence, of a particularly potent and intimate form of violence, which erupts from within us. The uncontrolled blast of energy we call laughter fractures the surface of reality. It reminds us that our experience of the everyday world is governed by convention. We are only serious and obedient out of habit. And if our everyday world is mere habit, so is our acceptance of those who rule over us. For this reason, the great jokers of history have been seen as dangerous. "François Rabelais was a great joker. He was also the greatest writer of the French Renaissance ?- the French Shakespeare, if you will ?- and the source book for countless later writers and artists from Sterne to Balzac to Joyce, from Doré to Derain. And nowhere is the proximity of laughter and violence explored with more intensity and breadth of vision than in Rabelais's 'chronicles' of the adventures of the two giants Gargantua and Pantagruel, which Art Hazelwood has interpreted in the [Gargantua in the Vineyards]….Hazelwood's scenes set before us the dissonance between the pompous authority figures whom Rabelais lampoons and the out-sized heroes themselves, whose very bodies frequently become the stage where the tales are enacted. His images overlap and intertwine on several planes at once. They suggest both the zoom-like leaps of Rabelais's narrative, as it shifts location and context from episode to episode, and the sensual complexity of his energetic prose style. "But Rabelais is not only interested in satire. His writing cuts much deeper than mere wit, to explore the vanishing point where the destructive voice of satire leads to a vision of transformation, where laughter becomes violence and violence is undone by laughter. Rabelais haunts those places where words explode into excess or chaos, where images overflow their boundaries and change shape-permutations signaled here by the metamorphic energy of Hazelwood's forms, which seem to unfold, one from another. "It is beautifully appropriate that these images should come to us in book form. For, as one of the first European writers to exploit the technology of the printing press, Rabelais understood the power of the book and the danger contained in words and images. He also knew that the best art is art which can't be easily categorized or contained. Rabelais's books are like their exorbitant protagonists, oversized and exaggerated, filled with lists, puns, and jokes. They blend the learned and the popular, the epic and the trivial. Hazelwood's figurative style evokes Rabelais's linguistic exorbitance. And it bridges the historical gap between Rabelais and our own moment, suggesting certain features of Renaissance book illustration while rendering them completely contemporary…. "In Gargantua [in the Vineyard] the fragility of community is represented in the beautiful image of the vineyard and the motif of wine which runs throughout the work. Wine in Rabelais may be interpreted in any number of ways ?- as the nourishment of body and spirit (going back to the Song of Songs), as the elixir which binds community at any meal, as the sacramental blood of Christ which founds Christian Europe. The garden-like vineyard and the life force which it represents are constantly in danger in Rabelais's world. Still, they may be the only thing worth dying for. The confrontation between Rabelais's giants and the forces of reaction and dogmatism as they battle for the vineyard speaks directly to all moments in history ?- not least to our own, when cliché, doctrine, and false piety threaten the power of laughter and creation. Hazelwood's panorama renders, in stark fashion, the stakes of the Rabelaisian battle. The dynamism of the presentation ?- with its puffs of wind, bursts of laughter, and the pulse of appetite reaching for the succulent grape ?- directs us beyond battle, to the creative force that heals community.

        In Tents (Big Top)

      Santa Ynez, California:: Pamela Zwehl-Burke,, 2001.. Edition of 12. 11.75 x 15"; 10 pages. Reversefold in Arches Cover. 11 solar etchings, 3 in 4-plate color, one of which appears on the front cover. 6 x 1" cast iron bookmark with color enameled performers and animals. Text appears on a free-floating section of clear mylar (6 x 6.5") that is attached by a 14" ribbon to the spine so it can be inserted at any page. Pamela Zwehl-Burke: "Text is a poem ... imitating the sounds of the circus with an enabled cast iron 'bookmark' which completes the piece. Being a collection of images following a performance of the Carson and Barnes Oklahoma 5-Ring Circus, which has toured big cities and small towns of North America for almost 60 years. Each year mounting over 250 one-day stands." Pamela Zwehl-Burke: "I was struck by the improbable life of the independent traveling circus which came to my small town, and wanted to champion their energy and determination. In contradistinction to other animal rights people who think that circuses harm animals I believe they give children and adults a chance to meet and love animals they otherwise don't get to know up close and personal. Zoos and circuses can start in their patrons that connection, which grows into an awareness of our responsibility towards species other than our own. Human circus performers are awe-inspiring athletes, who lift our expectations of human skill and strength. Sadly, within a year of my having finished this book, the circus closed, victim of government restrictions, financial instability, high costs with dwindling audiences."
