        The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. With an Introduction by Fabian Peake.

      2003 - Small folio, original cloth lettered in gilt on spine and upper board. Printed in red and black, with 8 illustrations by Mervyn Peake, printed the same size as the originals. A mint copy. Limited edition of 190 numbered copies, this one of 50 Special copies consisting of the book with a portfolio of prints housed in a solander box. "Following the restorartion and publishing of Meryn Peake's illustrations to Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Libanus Press, Peake's family approached the Press with the suggestion that we should produce a companion volume of The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. After the first publications of his illustrations, Peake had hope to sell the drawings: he reworked them and colour-washed the papers. None were sold and one was lost. The drawings have been scanned and restored by the Press using the techniques developed with the Alice drawings. The background tints of the original vary. The drawings are printed letterpress to crisply replicate them at the size of the original artwork on a uniform tint to reveal the full effect Peake had in mind with his final reworkings." (Prospectus) "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner proliferates in images and offers enormous potential for an illustrator. Mervyn Peake began illustrating books by writers other than hiomself in the early 1940s and the 'Mariner' illustrations are part of a rich history in which his best work was realised. He knew the poem well and would often quote passages in the house. He made a thorough search, choosing scenes and images with which to emboss his interpretation on the poem. When reading the poem, one is struck by images that spring up like flashing beacons and demand to be illustrated. The illustrations have an unreal, rather theatrical quality. as has the poem, and leave us bursting with unanswerable questions." (Fabian Peake from his Introduction). " [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Maqamat Al-Hariri Illustrated By Y. Al-Wasiti. 13th Century Arabic manuscript (TWO VOLUMES).

      Touch Art, London 2003 - Volume I: Introduction 42 pp.; of English, French & German text + XXII pp.; of Arabic text, biblio./ Volume II: authentic facsimile reproduction of the original Arabic manuscript which is housed at the Bibliotheque Nationale (Paris), 334 pp.; (380 x 270 mm), 110 colour miniatures illustrations by Yahya Al-Wasiti. Set in mint condition. New. LIMITED edition to 2000 numbered copies. A MONUMENTAL WORK, and a landmark in Arabic paintings and miniatures. It combines the primary excellence of being a grand collection of literature admired during a long and important period of Arab history, and fascinating collection of miniatures. " Among the treasures of the rich collection of manuscripts at the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris is a codex of 168 folios (arabe 5847) with 101 illustrations containing the complete text of what is called al-Maqamat al-Haririyah in a decorated cartouche awkwardly located on the upper part of the first folio. The manuscript is sometimes known as the Schefer Maqamat, because it was given to the Bibliotheque Nationale by the Orientalist scholar Charles Schefer, who probably acquired it somewhere in the Ottoman Empire, where he had spent many years Dozens of manuscripts of Hariri’s Maqamat have been preserved from his own time.Of all the manuscripts with pictures containing Al-Hariri’s great work, (this copy) towers above all others for the quality and variety of its illustrations. It was completed in C. E. 1237 (A. H. 634, in the month Ramadan) and according to its colophon, was copied and illustrated by the same individual, Yahya ibn Mahmud ibn Yahya ibn Abi al-Hasan ibn Kuwwarih al-Wasiti, presumably originating from the city of al-Wasit. .This essay was written at a time of great sadness for me, as presumably civilized human organizations failed to find ways to resolve differences and felt compelled to kill each other instead. By the time this book comes out, the worst of the war will be over, but the emotional depression of men and women of good will is likely to remain for a while. This book which deals, if not with Baghdad itself, certainly with Iraq, can be construed as a homage to the permanent values of mankind and to the power and fascination of art, regardless of when or where it was made".

        Efsun Çiçegi (Enchanting Beauty Flowers)

      Ebristan Yayinlari, (Istanbul) 2003 - Original marbled paper by the premier marbling artist in Turkey, Hikmet Barutçugil. Signed and dated by the artist. Ebru, or marbling, is one of the oldest arts in Turkey. In addition to being used in book binding and design, it was often used as a background for calligraphy. In this way, marbling was elevated to a high art. Ever since its fifteenth-century beginnings, artists in Turkey (and around the world) have experimented with marbling in order to create increasingly complex designs, which are works of art in their own right. Barutcugil has developed his own technique for creating flowers within his marbled patterns, inspired by his wife, Füsun Hanim. In this lovely example, four tulips in lavender and violet bloom against a marbled background in shades of green, pink, blue, and violet. The marbling transitions from delicate washes of green to bolder, defined lines which evoke mountains and sky. Barutcgil's limitless creativity and passion for this traditional art is clear in his work. The paper has been mounted onto a stiff cardboard backing. Measures 18 by 9 inches. A very fine example of Turkish marbling, which is offered with "Efsun Cicergi," Barutcugil's fully illustrated text on Efsun Flowers. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Though the pulps are mostly forgotten today, more than a thousand different pulp titles were printed, and over 50,000 individual issues appeared. The most popular pulps were published weekly and oftentimes sold over 500,000 copies per issue. Literally thousands of hardcover books reprinted pulp stories and hundreds of movies were based on pulp fiction. --The pulp field died in the early 1950's, with only a few titles lasting to the later years of that decade. Most genre literature, ranging from westerns to mysteries to science fiction, had already made the jump to digests, slick magazines, or paperback. What didn't survive were mid-length works, novelets and short novels, the bread and butter of pulp magazines, stories too long to be considered a short and too short to be published as a novel. And with them disappeared most series stories featuring continued characters. There was no room in the world of paperback originals for the pulp heroes who filled the pages of Argosy, Adventure, Dime Detective, Wild West Weekly and many other fine magazines. They've been lost from sight—until now. --Lost Treasures of the Pulps is a new series of hardcover books collecting some of the great series stories that have never been reprinted from the pulp magazines. This first set of two volumes reprints the entire Peter the Brazen series by George F. Worts, occasionally writing under his own name and also under the pen name, Loring Brent. There were two series of Peter the Brazen stories written. The first appeared in Argosy in 1919-1920, while the second series appeared in the same magazine from 1930-1935. The second series of adventures is considered by many pulp fans as perhaps the greatest action series ever to be published in the pulps. In particular, the three stories detailing Peter's battles with the Chinese mastermind, the Blue Scorpion, are pulp adventures at their finest. Written by George F. Worts, one of the finest adventure writers of the 20th century, these stories are just as exciting and entertaining as they were when first published. --George F. Worts was an extremely popular pulp magazine writer known not only for this series but also for his Singapore Sammy stories and Gillian Hazeltine mystery novels. Worts, who was born in Ohio on March 6, 1892 was a successful author, businessman and editor. When he was still a young man, he worked as a ship's radio operator much like his character, Peter the Brazen. After living most of his life on the East Coast, Worts moved to Hawaii where he died in 1967.---,any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The House I Once Called Home, A Photographic Memoir With Verse (Deluxe version)

      [Enitharmon Editions Ltd, 2003], [London] - 4to - over 9" - 12" tall. 56 p. Signed by Artist No. 10 of 50 deluxe versions, there were also 15 hors commerce copies, with the regular edition being 3000; the deluxe version is limited to 50 copies, numbered and signed by the artist. It is accompanied by his first ever original print, a delicately nuanced photogravure made from one of the most haunting images in the sequence: this too is numbered and signed. Duane Michals (b. 1932, in McKeesport, PA) is one of the great photographic innovators of the last century, widely known for his work with series, multiple exposures, and text. Michals first made significant, creative strides in the field of photography during the 1960s. In an era heavily influenced by photojournalism, Michals manipulated the medium to communicate narratives. The sequences, for which he is widely known, appropriate cinema's frame-by-frame format. Michals has also incorporated text as a key component in his works, but rather than serving a didactic or explanatory function, his handwritten text adds another dimension to the images' meaning and gives voice to Michals' singular musings which are poetic, tragic, and humorous, often all at once. Mr. Michals was seventy when, soon after the death of his mother, he returned to his native Pittsburgh to revisit the house in which he was born and brought up. Its deteriorated state proved a poignant focus for his memories, prompting reveries on mortality and the succession of generations that found form as a sequence of photographs and poetic texts. For any of us who have lost the older generations of our families and have pondered the transient nature of life, this volume will touch deep chords and enable us to examine our own feelings of loss and lives lived with all of life's complexities. (N.B., the above info from the web sites of the Press and of DC Art Gallery.) ***DESCRIPTION: Decorated paper boards with paper label inset on the front, black lettering on the spine, decorative endpapers, photographic sequences interspersed through the book with corresponding text, some typeset and some hand-written; quarto size (approximately 10.5" tall), unpaginated with 28 leaves total.

        The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. With an Introduction by Fabian Peake.

      Small folio, original cloth lettered in gilt on spine and upper board. Printed in red and black, with 8 illustrations by Mervyn Peake, printed the same size as the originals. A mint copy. Limited edition of 190 numbered copies, this one of 50 Special copies consisting of the book with a portfolio of prints housed in a solander box. "Following the restorartion and publishing of Meryn Peake's illustrations to Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Libanus Press, Peake's family approached the Press with the suggestion that we should produce a companion volume of The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. After the first publications of his illustrations, Peake had hope to sell the drawings: he reworked them and colour-washed the papers. None were sold and one was lost. The drawings have been scanned and restored by the Press using the techniques developed with the Alice drawings. The background tints of the original vary. The drawings are printed letterpress to crisply replicate them at the size of the original artwork on a uniform tint to reveal the full effect Peake had in mind with his final reworkings." (Prospectus) "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner proliferates in images and offers enormous potential for an illustrator. Mervyn Peake began illustrating books by writers other than hiomself in the early 1940s and the 'Mariner' illustrations are part of a rich history in which his best work was realised. He knew the poem well and would often quote passages in the house. He made a thorough search, choosing scenes and images with which to emboss his interpretation on the poem. When reading the poem, one is struck by images that spring up like flashing beacons and demand to be illustrated. The illustrations have an unreal, rather theatrical quality. as has the poem, and leave us bursting with unanswerable questions." (Fabian Peake from his Introduction). "

        Efsun Çiçegi (Enchanting Beauty Flowers)

      (Istanbul): Ebristan Yayinlari, 2003. Barutçugil, Hikmet. Original marbled paper by the premier marbling artist in Turkey, Hikmet Barutçugil. Signed and dated by the artist. Ebru, or marbling, is one of the oldest arts in Turkey. In addition to being used in book binding and design, it was often used as a background for calligraphy. In this way, marbling was elevated to a high art. Ever since its fifteenth-century beginnings, artists in Turkey (and around the world) have experimented with marbling in order to create increasingly complex designs, which are works of art in their own right. Barutcugil has developed his own technique for creating flowers within his marbled patterns, inspired by his wife, Füsun Hanim. In this lovely example, four tulips in lavender and violet bloom against a marbled background in shades of green, pink, blue, and violet. The marbling transitions from delicate washes of green to bolder, defined lines which evoke mountains and sky. Barutcgil's limitless creativity and passion for this traditional art is clear in his work. The paper has been mounted onto a stiff cardboard backing. Measures 18 by 9 inches. A very fine example of Turkish marbling, which is offered with "Efsun Cicergi," Barutcugil's fully illustrated text on Efsun Flowers.
