        PICATRIX (Ghayat Al-Hakim), The Goal of the Wise Two Volumes (Deluxe Leather Edition)

      Seattle: Ouroboros Press, 2002 2008. First Editio Thus. Hardcover. Near Fine. (volumes issued separately). Octavo. 170, 300 pages. Beautifully bound in Full black goat. Hand-bound with raised spine-bands and gilt titles, silk ribbon bookmark and marbled endsheets, from the fine binders at Ars Obscura Bookbinding. A NEAR FINE SET. The Picatrix has long been regarded as source material in the Hermetic tradition. The text of this Medieval work consists of four books covering the art and practice of Astrological, Talismanic and Astral Magic. The author has compiled information derived from 224 books by ?ancient sages? (Hermes, Plato & Aristotle and others, known and unknown) with the intention of uniting all these diverse arts into a practical system. This Ouroboros Press edition is a translation based on the medieval [circa 10th century] Classical Arabic as opposed to the later Renaissance Latin translation. The Warburg Institute originally published the Arabic, German, and Latin editions which are often referred to by scholars and remain the only academic editions extant. Volume one of the Picatrix contains the first two books and are here translated into English for the first time. Volume Two contains the 3rd and 4th books of Ghayat Al-Hakim and completes the English translation. It is a larger book than volume one and contains much in the way of the practical working of astral and talismanic magic. Planetary and Zodiacal magic and full instructions for invoking the related spirits are provided along with all the requisite materials needed: stones, plants, inks, colors, incenses, talismans, and the invocations. In addition to this are many anecdotes relating to Arabic and pre-Islamic magical lore, including the writings of Ibn Wahshija, the Nabataeans, Sabians, Chaldeans and Assyrians. Of particular note is the magical plant and mineral lore from the Nabataean Agriculture, which portray ancient practices of pagan Iraq. The influence of the Picatrix can be seen in several texts of well-known authors of the western esoteric tradition, including Ficino, Mirandola, Abano and Agrippa, whose works have played a major role in forming contemporary manifestations of the esoteric tradition today.

        Typescript with autograph signature. The Hague, 26. VI. 2002.

      2002. Large 4to. 6½ pp. on 7 ff. The speech on "NATO'S REFORM and Romania's Place in the Alliance" was held in Den Haag on June 26, 2002: "[...] My hope is that, when we meet next time, the discussion will not be about which countries should be admitted into NATO but, rather, how all of us, a united trans-Atlantic community, can meet the challenges facing us in the future. The result should be a community of free, dependent but inter dependent states at the same time. Our country wants nothing less but to become a full member of this family". - Traces of sewing.

Paradise Lost was composed after 1652, when Milton had gone blind, dictated from memory to a secretary.

The slipcase is also fine, strong and sturdy, perhaps a hint of dustiness. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the Abe standard does not always cover costs; please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        I dipinti di Venezia.

      Edizioni Magnus, 2002. Un precoce collezionismo contribuisce ad arricchire Venezia di pitture, quadri, disegni sin dal 1300 con opere di Giotto e Simone Martini. Fin dal medioevo si diffondono e proliferano nella città associazioni denominate scuole. Col tempo le scuole principali o più ricche edificarono nelle immediate vicinanze della chiesa un edificio progettato da architetti famosi e decorato dai maggiori artisti. Nascono così la Scuola di San Girolamo con dipinti di Giovanni Bellini, la Scuola di Sant'Orsola con i dipinti di Carpaccio, la Scuola di San Rocco con lo straordinario ciclo tintorettesco, la Scuola dei Carmini con lo splendido soffitto di Giovanni Battista Tiepolo. Sulla fine del Quattrocento contribuiscono all'opulenza e alla bellezza della città anche le raccolte private, dove vengono collezionati dipinti fiamminghi. Sommario La pittura veneziana del Trecento, del primo Quattrocento, del Quattrocento fino a Bellini Dipinti italiani del Tre e Quattrocento Giovanni Bellini Giovan Battista Cima da Conegliano Gentile Bellini, Vittore Carpaccio, Giorgione, Sebastiano Del Piombo Pittori Fiamminghi e Olandesi fra Quattrocento e Cinquecento Pittori Veneziani del Primo Cinquecento Tiziano Lorenzo Lotto Il Manierismo della pittura veneziana Jacopo Tintoretto, Jacopo Bassano, Paolo Veronese, Jacopo Palma il Giovane Tra Cinque e Seicento Artisti stranieri e nuove tendenze Oltre i "tenebrosi": pittori "chiaristi" e barocchi Sebastiano Ricci e Giovanni Battista Piazzetta Il Rococò: Pellegrini, Carriera, G.A.

        Alamo: A Radio Play

      (n.p.): (n.p.). [2002]. A 25-page script for Moody's radio play, about an art student obsessed with the rotating cubical sculpture in New York City's Astor Place entitled Alamo but commonly known as "the cube." The play first appeared in Paris Review 162, but it was performed as part of WNYC's public radio show, "The Next Big Thing." This script for the performance belonged to Tony Award-winning actor and "Wilson" of television's House, Robert Sean Leonard, who here played the main character, Irv Paley. Leonard's holograph markings and comments appear in the text, i.e., a working copy of the script. Together with a program for the performance listing the cast members and other principals, and a two-page interview with the sculptor of "Alamo," Tony Rosenthal who, among other things, explains where the sculpture got its name. Among the other cast members is Peter Dinklage, currently of Game of Thrones fame. George Plimpton is credited with "Stage Directions" an Moody as Playwright. The place of the performance is not identified, but it would appear that this performance was the one that was recorded for radio play on WNYC in 2002: apparently it was performed again on WNYC in 2004, with a different cast; the later cast included Miranda July and Ethan Hawke. The script is a computer printout on three hole-punched sheets, one sheet of which is recycled from another script, in a plastic binder. Near fine. A unique copy of a rare printed version of an uncommon work by Moody. First Edition. No Binding. Near Fine.

Format in-4°( 28,6 x 24,7 cm )( 2490 gr ). ------- 378 pages. *********************** "" Après Bagues ethniques et Boucles d’oreilles, voici Bracelets ethniques, troisième volume de la série consacrée à la collection Ghysels de parures ethniques du monde entier. Les quelque 1200 bracelets, mais aussi ornements de chevilles, présentés ici forment un ensemble d’une qualité exceptionnelle. Les photographies de Mauro Magliani permettent de saisir toute la richesse de ces objets en métal, os ou plumes qui jalonnent les étapes de la vie : des petits anneaux, qui tintinnabulent au moindre mouvement, préservent les enfants des esprits malins au Proche-Orient, aux bracelets en jade retrouvés dans des sépultures chinoises pour l’ultime voyage. Sur le plan formel, bon nombre de ces objets sont à la frontière de deux mondes : celui de la préhistoire, dont plusieurs ethnies ont prolongé les traditions jusqu’au XXe siècle et celui des artistes contemporains, qui, d’une manière ou d’une autre, se sont inspirés des oeuvres de ces orfèvres lointains."" *************************** [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Moonage Daydream: The Life and Times of Ziggy Stardust

      UK: Genesis Publications. 2002. SIGNED BY BOWIE AND ROCK. A collaboration between David Bowie and photographer Mick Rock published to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the Ziggy Stardust LP's original release. Folio, printed on fourteen different paper stocks, including clear acetate, trace leaves and a variety of coloured and textured papers. pp.346, printed in colour throughout, housed in presentation box.The binding is quarter blue leather over printed photographic boards of Bowie by Rock, blocked in gilt and silver, all edges silver. The design on the cloth-covered box is a faithful recreation of the fabric pattern David wore on the cover of the Ziggy Stardust LP. Lid has a blue leather label titled in gold and silver. A superb production, Limited to 2500 copies, signed by both artists. 'As new' example (no 1403). The publisher's first Bowie book (now fully subscribed), being a Genesis 'Hall of Fame' title. In 1972, David Bowie released an iconic statement of modern popular music. The LP, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars, not only established Bowie as a major musical force, it also provided him with a platform to present a visually fascinating and sexually ambivalent stage persona called Ziggy Stardust. David and his alter ego quickly became the focus of intense press and public scrutiny. Ziggy, the concept, was a brilliant combination of amazing costumes, colourful make up, fabulous hair, dramatic lighting, traditional mime and, above all, classic music. Character and creator were quickly propelled into music legend as the inspiration for a whole generation. Mick Rock is widely recognised as one of the most significant and prolific music photographers of the Seventies. David and Mick met in March 1972, just as Ziggy was about to be launched upon the world, and so began a unique working relationship and friendship. Ziggy's huge cultural influence was carefully nurtured and fed to both press and public by an artist and management who realised the extra interest to be generated by holding back open access. Mick Rock was thus the only photographer authorised to record the whole of Ziggy's career from early 1972 to the end of 1973.
