        Fragments of Light 2. Concept and Design by Kelly Driscoll. Translated by Zahra Partovi.

      Vincent FitzGerald & Company, New York 2003 - Artist's book, signed, limited edition, one of 35 copies, each copy consisting of 7 plates of Depp Glass, each plate with a laser etch of the English translation of the verse of thirteenth-century Sufi philosopher and poet, Rumi. There is, as well, a laser etch of the original Persian verse. Laser etching accomplished by Laser Edge Designs. Each plate of glass is 6-1/2 x 9-1/2 inches. The concept and design for this book sculpture is by Kelly Driscoll. The type for the English translation is Diotima. The calligraphy is by Jerry Kelly. The printed colophon is by Wild Carrot Letterpress. Housed in a pale sea-green suede box with fall- down sides and held together by magnets imbedded in the box sides. This is an extraordinarily beautiful book with the laser etch on each tablet visible through to the bottom from the top. The subtlety of the designs created by this assemblage is breathtaking, and the play of light through the glass captivating. Of course, the idea of a pre-codex text being made available in a contemporary pre-codex form seems miraculously simple; rather it is simply miraculous. Known for publishing the finest of contemporary artist's books, Vincent FitzGerald & Co., has once again created a thing of intriguing beauty. See an Image. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Perfect World of David Halliday (Signed Limited Edition with 11 Signed Prints)

      South Dennis, Massachusetts: 21st Editions , 2003. Limited Edition . Hardcover. As New. In 2003, fine press photography book publisher 21ST Editions released The Perfect World of David Halliday. Limited to 60 copies worldwide, the hand-bound collection contains 11 original silver gelatin prints (ten bound and one free-standing silver gelatin print that is suitable for framing). Each print is fully signed by David Halliday with the free standing photograph entitled Still Life with Durian Fruit also signed in full on the rectro. This copy, 3 of 60, was presented to Lance Speer (21ST Editions Contributing Editor and Director of Marketing) upon completion of the project. Each signed and numbered copy of The Perfect World of David Halliday is hand-bound and printed in letterpress on handmade cotton rag paper. This gorgeous handmade volume is housed in a custom clamshell box and measures approximately 20 x 15 inches. The free-standing silver gelatin print is housed in a folded, letterpress printed presentation folder. The book is signed by David Halliday, John Wood, and the publisher, Stephen Albahari. A Letter of Provenance from Lance Speer is included. The book and prints are in PRISTINE condition. David Halliday\'s luminous still life photographs are constructed from the simplest and most elemental objects and demonstrate the photographer\'s classical palettes of form, texture and light. From John Wood\'s introduction, David Halliday, I am certain, is the greatest master of the still life that photography has yet produced. But more than that he is probably the greatest photographer of joy as well. I am talking here of serious joy-not an armload of puppies, a kitten in a ladle of pasta, kissing children, or anything to which the word cute might be applied. Though joyful, his work has about it the seriousness of the spiritual. His imagery is constructed from many of life\'s most perfect, simple, yet most elemental objects-the rose, the egg, the bottle of milk, the loaf of bread. In his photographs these things transcend their objectivity to partake of the world of symbol and subjectivity. He finds the most existential of things to photograph, those things humanity would not want to live without. I am not speaking literally of food or flowers, but what those things represent to us, what they mean to us on a deeper level.

        Assault of Angels. Poem by Michael Roberts, Painted and Lettered by Elizabeth McKee

      Pasadena, MD. 2003. Unique artist&#39;s book, hand painted and hand lettered on handmade paper mounted on foam core board which is backed with Ugandan bark cloth, signed and dated by the artist on the front cover, Elizabeth McKee. Page size: 22 inches wide x 37 inches high x 10 inches deep; opens to 33 feet long when displaying all pages and weighs 70 pounds; 20pp. Bound by the artist: hinged pages backed with Ugandan bark cloth that fold up on one another and close with plastic clips covered with polymer clay and wood "arrow" covered with polymer clay threading through loops to fasten, two hinged openings on front panel opening to hand-lettered title in one and hand- lettered names of author and artist and date, hinges are of Tyvek covered with bark cloth; housed in custom-made blue case (weighing 60 pounds) by Cabbage Cases. & Michael Roberts (1902-1948) was born William Edward Roberts and made his living as a teacher. However, he also worked as a broadcaster for the BBC, edited, and wrote poetry. ASSAULT OF ANGELS, the poem lettered and interpreted here, was one of two of his poems included in the influential FABER BOOK OF MODERN VERSE, which he also edited. This troubling verse touches on the dual nature of life - fear and hate as well as love and joy and death. He died prematurely, from leukemia, at age 46 leaving behind his verse, and the FABER BOOK OF MODERN VERSE, as well as a legacy of a pioneering ecologist years before it was fashionable.& The artist, Elizabeth McKee, relates that she read the resonating lines, "A time comes when the house is comfortable and narrow" when contemplating a move from the comfort of her home in Canada to accompany her husband, working for UNICEF in Bangladesh. Work on this monumental book started in Kenya in 1998-1999; continued in Uganda from 1999-2000, and finished in Maryland, 2000-2003. The author relates that she could not find a visual translation of the line, "Angels are at your door: admit them now" until after 9/11 - when she picked up her brush and finished her images in this book as her intuitive response to that event.& The painting in acrylic and gesso was accomplished with the artist&#39;s left hand - her non-dominant hand. The lettering was done with her right hand. In the process, she wore out her two-inch Isabey Chungking brush. The paintings are glued with acid- free glue (carragheenan, methylcellulose and Elvace) to acid-free foam core board and mat board for front and back covers. The boards were then hinged together with Tyvek strips covered with bark cloth. The Ugandan bark cloth is made from the bark of the ficus natelensis, the most common fig tree in Uganda. Historically, this cloth has been used for clothing as well as wall hangings. To make it, the tree is stripped of its bark. The bark is then wrapped in green banana fiber, soaked in water and then steamed over a charcoal fire - which softens it. To further soften it, it is laid out and pounded with mallets - sometimes to six times its original width and one and a quarter times its length. The cloth is then dried in the sun, taking on its rich brown color. The stripped tree begins to form a new bark within ten days; the stripping process may be repeated thirty to forty times on one tree. & The artist has created an enormous book which is actually a series of 20 paintings with words that interpret the monumental scale of Roberts&#39; words. These are meant to unfold into one long, continuous image. The beauty and boldness of the colors and forms - signaling the fantastic size and power of the unknown - is perfectly expressed. Against the backdrop of the cosmos, large angel wings can almost be heard beating, but the effect is not fear. Rather, it is awe. TEXT:& The mind trembles from the assault of angels;& Running in familiar light it sees the sea,& It remembers the dark subway and the lost fields of childhood,& It remembers the loneliness of first love and the end of a summer:& These are familiar and small.& & But the assault of angels is more terrible: angels are invisible,& Angels cast no shadow, and their unpredicted motion& Moves the familiar shadows into light.& Angels cannot burn the fingers: unacknowledged, & They pass unseen. No one will ever know.& Refuse them: they have no claim to charity,& To ignore them offers a key to omniscience.& Angels breed darkness out of light, angels rejoice& In things we hate and fear.& & Angels are the launching of a new ship,& Angels offer to inhabit the landscape of your body,& Angels will let you grow as a child grows,& They are your enemy: they will destroy you.& & And a time comes when a man is afraid to grow,& A time comes when the house is comfortable and narrow.& A time when the spirit of life contracts.& Angels are at your door: admit them, now. <br>See an <A HREF= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/10811.jpg >Image.</A><br>

        Seven Pillars of Wisdom: a triumph, the complete 1922 &#39;Oxford&#39; text, limited and numbered one-volume edition

      Salisbury, England: Castle Hill Press, 2003. Hardcover. As new. This is a pristine, as-new copy of the first one-volume Castle Hill Press limited edition of the full 1922 "Oxford&#39; text, hand-numbered #1010 of 1,225 copies. Seven Pillars of Wisdom is the story of T.E. Lawrence&#39;s (1888-1935) remarkable odyssey as instigator, organizer, hero, and tragic figure of the Arab revolt against the Ottoman Empire during the First World War, which he began as an eccentric junior intelligence officer and ended as "Lawrence of Arabia." This time defined Lawrence with indelible experience and celebrity, which he would spend the rest of his famously short life struggling to reconcile and reject, to recount and repress. Lawrence famously resisted publication of his masterwork for the general public during his lifetime. The saga is remarkable. He nearly completed a massive first draft in 1919, only to famously lose it when his briefcase was mislaid at a train station. This first draft was never recovered. At a fever pitch, Lawrence wrote a new 400,000 word draft in 1920. This punishing burst of writing was followed by an equally brutal process of editing by Lawrence. In 1922, a 335,000 word version was carefully circulated to select friends and literary critics - the famous "Oxford Text". George Bernard Shaw called it "a masterpiece". Nonetheless, Lawrence was unready to see it distributed to the public. Finally, in 1926, a further edited 250,000 word "Subscribers&#39; Edition" was produced by Lawrence - but fewer than 200 copies were made, each lavishly and uniquely bound. The process cost Lawrence far more than he made in subscriptions. To recover the loss, Lawrence finally authorized an edition for the general public - but one even further abridged and entitled "Revolt in the Desert". It was only in the summer of 1935, in the weeks following Lawrence&#39;s death, that the text of the Subscribers&#39; Edition was finally published for circulation to the general public. However, the fuller "Oxford Text" - a third longer than the shortened text which became so famous - would not be republished until 1997. Castle Hill took this text from the manuscript in the Bodleian Library and T.E. Lawrence&#39;s annotated copy of the 1922 Oxford Times printing. Castle Hill Press first published a three-volume limited edition of 752 sets of the Oxford Text, followed by a one-volume limited edition of 1,225 copies in 2003. This copy is hand-numbered #1010. It is printed on acid-free paper in a sewn binding of medium brown cloth with top edge gilt, head and footbands, illustrated endpapers, ribbon page marker, 16 pages of plates bearing 18 black and white photographs, and illustrated color endpapers reproduced from maps prepared by Lawrence for Seven Pillars of Wisdom in 1926. New to the one-volume edition and notable is an award-winning Index by Hazel K. Bell. Condition of this copy is as-new. The book was purchased by us from the publisher and has not been handled or read. The book is protected by a clear, archival mylar cover and housed in a plain slipcase with dark brown paper covered sides and black cloth top and bottom.

        Emblemata sive symbola a principibus, viris eeclesiasticis, ac militaribus, aliisque usurpanda. Devises ou emblemes pour princes, gens d'eglise, gens de guerre, & aultres.Brussels, Huybrecht Anthoon, 1624. 4to. With engraved clock device on title-page and 207 numbered emblems on 23 engraved plates. 19th-century brown half cloth.

      Praz, p. 526; Landwehr, Emblem and Fable books 840; cf. Van der Weij, Emblems of the Low Countries (2003), pp. 45-46. First and only edition of one of the lesser-known emblem books by Otto Vaenius, containing a diverse selection of emblems, according to the title, meant for princes, clergymen, military men and others. The draughtsman, painter and poet Otto Vaenius (1556-1629) is today best known as a teacher of Rubens and for his role in the development of the genre of emblemata and the development of the love emblem in particular. His Amorum Emblemata is "one of the most important Dutch emblematical works. It firmly established Vaenius as a leading emblematist after his glorious beginning with the famous moral-philosophical neo-stoic Emblemata Horatiana (1607)" (Van der Weij). Somewhat browned along the edges, otherwise in very good condition.

        Seven Pillars of Wisdom: a triumph, the complete 1922 &#39;Oxford&#39; text, limited and numbered one-volume edition

      Salisbury, England: Castle Hill Press, 2003. Hardcover. As new. This is a pristine, as-new copy of the first one-volume Castle Hill Press limited edition of the full 1922 "Oxford&#39; text, hand-numbered #1010 of 1,225 copies. Seven Pillars of Wisdom is the story of T.E. Lawrence&#39;s (1888-1935) remarkable odyssey as instigator, organizer, hero, and tragic figure of the Arab revolt against the Ottoman Empire during the First World War, which he began as an eccentric junior intelligence officer and ended as "Lawrence of Arabia." This time defined Lawrence with indelible experience and celebrity, which he would spend the rest of his famously short life struggling to reconcile and reject, to recount and repress. Lawrence famously resisted publication of his masterwork for the general public during his lifetime. The saga is remarkable. He nearly completed a massive first draft in 1919, only to famously lose it when his briefcase was mislaid at a train station. This first draft was never recovered. At a fever pitch, Lawrence wrote a new 400,000 word draft in 1920. This punishing burst of writing was followed by an equally brutal process of editing by Lawrence. In 1922, a 335,000 word version was carefully circulated to select friends and literary critics - the famous "Oxford Text". George Bernard Shaw called it "a masterpiece". Nonetheless, Lawrence was unready to see it distributed to the public. Finally, in 1926, a further edited 250,000 word "Subscribers&#39; Edition" was produced by Lawrence - but fewer than 200 copies were made, each lavishly and uniquely bound. The process cost Lawrence far more than he made in subscriptions. To recover the loss, Lawrence finally authorized an edition for the general public - but one even further abridged and entitled "Revolt in the Desert". It was only in the summer of 1935, in the weeks following Lawrence&#39;s death, that the text of the Subscribers&#39; Edition was finally published for circulation to the general public. However, the fuller "Oxford Text" - a third longer than the shortened text which became so famous - would not be republished until 1997. Castle Hill took this text from the manuscript in the Bodleian Library and T.E. Lawrence&#39;s annotated copy of the 1922 Oxford Times printing. Castle Hill Press first published a three-volume limited edition of 752 sets of the Oxford Text, followed by a one-volume limited edition of 1,225 copies in 2003. This copy is hand-numbered #1010. It is printed on acid-free paper in a sewn binding of medium brown cloth with top edge gilt, head and footbands, illustrated endpapers, ribbon page marker, 16 pages of plates bearing 18 black and white photographs, and illustrated color endpapers reproduced from maps prepared by Lawrence for Seven Pillars of Wisdom in 1926. New to the one-volume edition and notable is an award-winning Index by Hazel K. Bell. Condition of this copy is as-new. The book was purchased by us from the publisher and has not been handled or read. The book is protected by a clear, archival mylar cover and housed in a plain slipcase with dark brown paper covered sides and black cloth top and bottom. Please note that this large, heavy book may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: O&#39;Brien A034a

        Trying to Dance (First Edition with Signed/Framed Print)

      Stockholm: Journal Stockholm, 2003. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. This is the true first edition of the critically acclaimed photobook Trying to Dance published by Journal Stockholm, Sweden in 2003. Accompanying the book is the signature photograph from the book, Radon, 2001 which is framed and signed by J.H. Engstrom with a limitation of 20 with this being number 5. About the book: Trying to Dance is one of the most highly regarded photobooks published in the past decade. In their book, The Photobook: A History, Parr and Badger wrote: Trying to Dance is a masterpiece of enigma and indeterminacy, a tone set by the cover picture. A young couple stand together in a field, the girl in a short white dress, a scarf or veil on her head, and a bunch of white flowers in her hand. It is probably a wedding photograph -- but we cannot be certain ... Trying to Dance seems to be in the vanguard of a new genre that depicts a veiled, oblique, almost novelistic view of modern life, especially modern relationships, apparently offering frankness and disclosure yet actually remaining extremely guarded. Measuring approximately 12.5 by 10 inches and containing 56 color and 39 black-and-white full page photographs printed on thick coated stock paper, the book is bound in black cloth covered boards with a full-page photographic reproduction pasted in front and metallic-silver titles on the cover and spine. The book is housed in a custom handmade gray cloth slipcase. The book and slipcase are in FINE condition. About the photograph: Radon, 2001 is one of the photographs contained in Trying to Dance and is frequently cited as one of J.H. Engstrom\'s most iconic photographs. The silver gelatin print measures 23.5 x 19.5 inches and is housed in a custom frame made by Absolute! Frameworks, Culver City, CA using museum grade materials. The print was released in an edition of 20 with this being number 5. The print is signed and titled by J.H. Engstrom on the verso. The frame is in FINE condition. The print is in FINE- condition with a few minor surface imperfections and some thin scratches that can be seen in racking light. This is a very large photograph and the faults listed are minimal and do not detract from the print.

Die leuchtenden Goldgr&#129;nde wurden im Faksimile mit Echtgold (23« Karat) gefertigt, sogar die im Original befindlichen rosa Seident&#129;cher zum Schutz der Miniaturen wurden mitfaksimiliert. Heute wird die Handschrift als Cod. Guelf. 13. Aug. 2ø in der Herzog August Bibliothek in Wolfenb&#129;ttel aufbewahrt. * Der Verlag M&#129;ller & Schindler schuf 2003 in aufwendiger Handarbeit lediglich 980 Exemplare (streng limitiert und nummeriert). * Angebotsumfang: 1 Band Faksimile * 1 Band Wissenschaftlicher Kommentar * Buchkassette * Ausstattungsdetails: Dem Original aus dem 13.
