        A TRIBUTE TO CAVAFY [SIGNED 2003]

      Limited Editions Club. Fine with no dust jacket. 2003. First Edition. Hardcover. 14 x 18.5"; A Tribute to Cavafy: A Selection of Poems with Photogravures by Duane Michals and Translations by Edmund Keeley & Philip Sherrard.

This elephant folio is bound in purple cloth with slight fading. Inset black leather label with stamped white lettering on front cover. Volume is in excellent condition. This book contains Cavafy"s original Greek printed interlinearly with the English translation with the text set in rare metal types and the pages printed by hand on Arches vellum. Illustrated with photogravures by Duane Michals. This edition was designed and printed by Dan Carr & Julia Ferrari. The photogravures were made and hand printed by Jon Goodman in Florence, Massachusetts. Clamshell case with printed leather spine label and velvet lining is in fine condition. Case measures approximately 15" x 20". Club Newsletter specific to this volume is laid-in. Constantine P. Cavafy was a renowned Greek poet who lived in Alexandria and worked as a journalist and civil servant. He published 154 poems; dozens more remained incomplete or in sketch form. His most important poetry was written after his fortieth birthday. Cavafy was instrumental in the revival and recognition of Greek poetry both at home and abroad. His poems are, typically, concise but intimate evocations of real or literary figures and milieux that have played roles in Greek culture. Uncertainty about the future, sensual pleasures, the moral character and psychology of individuals, homosexuality, and a fatalistic existential nostalgia are some of the defining themes. Besides his subjects, unconventional for the time, his poems also exhibit a skilled and versatile craftsmanship, which is almost completely lost in translation. [citation needed] Cavafy was a perfectionist, obsessively refining every single line of his poetry. His mature style was a free iambic form, free in the sense that verses rarely rhyme and are usually from 10 to 17 syllables. In his poems, the presence of rhyme usually implies irony. Cavafy drew his themes from personal experience, along with a deep and wide knowledge of history, especially of the Hellenistic era. Many of his poems are pseudo-historical, or seemingly historical, or accurately, but quirkily, historical. One of Cavafy's most important works is his 1904 poem "Waiting for the Barbarians". In 1911, Cavafy wrote Ithaca, inspired by the Homeric return journey of Odysseus to his home island, as depicted in the Odyssey. The poem's theme is that enjoyment of the journey of life, and the increasing maturity of the soul as that journey continues, are all the traveler can ask for. Almost all of Konstantinos Kavafis' work was in Greek; yet, his poetry remained unrecognized in Greece until after the publication of his first anthology in 1935. He is known for his prosaic use of metaphors, his brilliant use of historical imagery, and his aesthetic perfectionism. These attributes, amongst others, have assured him an enduring place in the literary pantheon of the Western World. Translor: Edmund Keeley - Edmund Leroy Keeley is an author, translator, and Charles Barnwell Straut Professor Emeritus of English at Princeton University. He is a prize-winning novelist and a noted expert on Greek poets C. P. Cavafy, George Seferis, Odysseus Elytis and Yannis Ritsos, and on post-Second World War Greek history. , Philip Sherrard - Philip Sherrard was a British author, translator, and philosopher. His work includes important translations of Modern Greek poets, and books on Modern Greek literature and culture, metaphysics, theology, art and aesthetics. A pioneer of Modern Greek studies in England, he was influential in making major Greek poets of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries known in the English-speaking world. He was also a prolific writer on theological and philosophical themes, addressing the origins of the social and spiritual crisis he believed was occurring in the developed world, and specifically exploring modern attitudes towards the environment from a Christian perspective. ; Signed by Illustrator .

        Handshake Triptych : Alice Did Not Like Shaking Hands With Either of Them First : Sketch for Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There

      Los Angeles: The Artist. 2003. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. F Original Painting. S Original Painting. Fine. Colored ink and gouache original painting / drawings, signed in pencil by the artist, created Spring, 2003 for a future edition. Series of 3 sheets; individual sheet size 5 1/4 x 8 1/8 inches. The title is an attribution, a modified quotation taken from the text based on the artist's marked copy of the work, and should be considered a working title. A unique original preliminary painting / sketch to illustrate Lewis Carroll's "Through the Looking Glass", the sequel to his celebrated edition of "Alice in Wonderland", winner of the Gold Medal from the New York Society of Illustrators in 2001. McGraw's colorful and vibrant work inspires children of all ages while not avoiding some of the edgier aspects of this remarkably complex work, generally considered to be Carroll's most psychologically involved. although no date for the full edition is set, this exhibition of work clearly shows that when published it will equal his award-winning "Alice". McGraw is an illustrator and artist who has worked with such authors as Janet Lewis, W. D. Snodgrass, Gary Soto, Robert Pinsky, et al., and reinterpreted classic texts by Carroll, Berthold Brecht, John Steinbeck, among others. Carroll's "Alice" has been the subject of McGraw's fascination for years, as he considers the character to have become the archetype of innocence in Anglo-American culture. This is from his first full-scale attempt to address Carroll's sequel, "Through the Looking Glass".

        Kuthan&#39;s Menagerie Completed

      Vancouver: Heavenly Monkey. Fine+. 2003. Limited Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. Printed on Golden Hind paper, a laid sheet, one side only and folded. Reid explains this both helped solve a problem with see-through and bulk up the book (which consists of 13 sheets forming 26 pages, from half title to colophon). The pages were printed landscape, and the sheets bound along the open edge. A cornerstone in Fine Press history in exceptionally Fine condition; Kuthan&#39;s Menagerie of Interesting Zoo Animals was published in 1960 from the private press of Robert and Felicity Reid (under the imprint Nevermore Press). It has since become famous in the history of fine printing in Canada, not just for Kuthan&#39;s exquisite multi-color linocuts of animals, but also for the fact that only 60 of the edition&#39;s 130 copies were ever bound; the balance remained in the bindery, eventually forgotten but luckily, not lost. The unbound copies were purchased from the original binder&#39;s estate by Vancouver booksellers Stephen Lunsford and William Hoffer, in the late &#39;80s; all of the 50 complete copies remaining have been issued through Heavenly Monkey. Rather than attempt to recreate the original binding, the remaining copies were issued in the livre d&#39;artiste manner, loose, with a new wrap and custom-made clamshell box. No further copies of Kuthan&#39;s Menagerie exist; the 50 copies issued in 2003 through Heavenly Monkey complete the edition .

The Platinum prints are printed on paper hand-coated by the photographer. The prints are matted 13 by 16 inches with warm-white, archival mat board.

        Nurse Paintings

      New York: Barbara Gladstone Gallery, 2003. Fine in illustrated wrappers.. First Edition. Small quarto. A unique, reinvented copy of the pulped first edition of Prince&#39;s nurse catalogue, with a SIGNED and dated DVD sticker on the front cover, and a Mad Magazine sticker covering the face of the cover nurse. The internal pages of the book have been intentionally taped together in two sections, leaving only four viewable pages. On the first of these pages Prince has written a list of 16 ailments, diseases, weapons, and unfortunate conditions: "Bad beath / Warts / Cancer / Cancors (sic) / Smelly Feet / Smart Bombs / Blitzgrieg / Pandemic / Outbreak / Ebola Virus / H-Bomb / TNT / Glock / AK-47 / Headache / Scar Tissue." The list of "plagues" is a trope which seldom appears in Prince&#39;s work; two examples on nurse paintings can been seen in the Guggenheim retrospective.

      Johannesburg, South Africa: Goodman Gallery Editions, 2003 Hardcover First edition. NEW. Black cloth-bound hardcover with title debossed on front cover and spine in dust jacket. Unpaginated; 27 full-page, five-color b&w photographic plates; 14 x 15 inches. Limited to 400 trade copies. SIGNED BY GOLDBLATT and dated "10.8.07." Out of print. Particulars is a body of photographs rooted in Goldblatt&#39;s time spent as a tailor. "Of my life experiences, one that was crucial was that of working in my father&#39;s shop, where I acquired a consciousness of bodily particulars that was technical rather than subjective." The images are of just this, bodily particulars: Bejeweled hands, street-worn feet, crossed legs, and overweight knees fill the frame and surprisingly reveal a great deal about the individuals as much as a facial portrait could. Only 200 of the copies were published with dust jackets. Absolutely gorgeous production, from the dioxin- and chlorine-free paper to the hand-binding to the 5-color printing. 2004 winner of the book award at the Rencontres d&#39;Arles photography festival in France. See Parr & Badger: The Photobook, Vol II, p114-115. Standard shipping for this volume includes packaging with padding in a box, shipping, insurance and tracking within the US by Priority Mail. Careful and secure packaging.
