        Morocco: A desert adventure

      Lawford, Essex; Fox Ash Press. 2004. - Limited edition; 4to; original boards. Edition of 300 this is one of 20 containing a modern archival photographic print of Humphrey Sender's self portrait, hand-printed on fibre-based paper from the original 1934 negative and signed by Spender, plus a slip case. David Jury, who established the Fox Ash Press in 1998, was engaged to photograph the entire contents of Spender's studio in 1997, and discovered in a draw, a large paper envelope with the words Moroccan Diary scrawled across it. It was found to contain a type written diary. The original hand written diary was also soon discovered. Jury found the diary to be a 'blunt, unreserved and compelling description of an alien world by a young, privileged, upper-middle class Englishman'. Spender had travelled to Morocco in the 1930s and he found his attempts to survive and assimilate the experience something of a challenge. Spender made the typed version on his return to England and it includes edits and revisions as he had the idea of trying to get it published. In this book both versions of the texts have been arranged side by side to allow comparison. 80 pages 32 black and white photographs by Spender, tipped in. Original prospectus. Fine in slip case.

        Itinerarium Portugallensium e Lusitania in Indiam et inde occidentem et demum ad aquilonem.[Milan, J. A. Scinzenzeler], 1508. Folio (25 x 19.5 cm). Title-page with woodcut map (second issue, with "Arabicus" replacing "P[er]sicus"). Early 20th-century red morocco, gilt edges.

      Borba de Moraes, p. 580; Harrisse 58; Sabin 50058; cf. PMM 42; Romano, Historical atlas of the United Arab Emirates (New York, 2004), 26. First Latin edition of the most important and "earliest printed collection of voyages and discoveries" (PMM). Also the only edition of this collection of travel reports to include the map showing Africa, Arabia and part of Europe, illustrating for the first time the new discoveries in the eastern hemisphere. This map, not included in the original 1507 Italian edition or any subsequent edition, is the earliest to show Africa completely surrounded by seas and, as one of the first non-Ptolemaic maps to include Arabia, definitely the earliest "modern" printed map to show Mecca. Published in 1508, it raises a controversy still with us more than 500 years later: it labels the Red Sea and the Gulf as a single body of water and calls it the Gulf, but in the first state of the block it was called the "Persian Gulf" ("Sinus Persicus"). For reasons unknown, the editor revised the block with a patch to rename it the "Arabian Gulf" ("Sinus Arabicus"). The map therefore exists in two different states in copies of this edition. Ours is the rarer second one, with "Sinus Arabicus". From the famous collection of Dr. Samuel X. Radbill. Foot of map creased as folded for binding, head of first 3 leaves with a stain and last 5 leaves with corner stains, binding slightly rubbed. Overall a very bright and clean copy.

Opstellen voor Elly Cockx-Indestege (2004), vol. II, pp. 425-36. Ad 1: Rare first edition in the original Dutch (a German translation appeared in the same year at Cologne) of one of the most important poetical works by the Dutch Renaissance poet Jan (Baptist) van der Noot (ca.1539-ca.1595) illustrated by the famous engraver and theologian, Dirck Volkertsz. Coornhert (1522-1590). The 17 finely engraved illustrations show episodes from the 12 books of the poem. Two bear the signature of the engraver Dirck Volkertsz. Coornhert, the latter, depicting Van der Noot's conversation with Theude, dated 1571. This shows that Van der Noot was already working on his Olympia epics by that time and that Coornhert, Hendrick Goltzius's master, engraved the plates while living in exile in the German Rhineland. The work was probably largely finished at that time. The woodcut with the allegorical obelisk with "hieroglyphs" (pictorial images in a wholly Western style) is one of the earliest examples of mystical interest in ancient Egypt.Ad 2: First and only edition of a poem glorifying the Duchy of Braband. Ad 3: First edition of a collection of laudatory poems in honour of Van der Noot's patrons, originally meant to serve as some kind of prologue to the Cort Begryp and Lofsang (ad 1 & 2). There are no page numbers or quire signatures, and Waterschoot notes, "For each new buyer Van der Noot arranged the leaves differently" (E Codicibis Impressisque, p. 436).Slightly thumbed in places, binding worn. Very good copies of three rare and important poetical works.

Hayes, Genius of Arab Civilisation, Source of Renaissance, pp.168-169.16th century printing of Avicenna?s Canon of Medicine [al-Qanun fi?l-Tibb], the most important medical textbook ever written which dominated medical teaching for six centuries. First printed in Strasburg before 1473, several incunable editions followed. The Canon was first printed in Arabic at the Medicean Press in Rome in 1593.Ibn Sina (980-1037), known in the West as Avicenna, physician and philosopher, poet, courtier and politician, had perhaps a wider influence in the Eastern and Western hemispheres than any other Islamic thinker. The Al-Quanun is a compendium of Greek and Muslim medical knowledge of Ibn Sina?s time, co-ordinating the teachings of Galen, Hippocrates and Aristotle, and describes Syrio-Arabic and Indo-Persian practices and includes Ibn Sina?s own experiments. It was accepted by the Islamic medical world as its major reference work until the 19th century. The West used the text for more than five hundred years, and in its latin translation it became the authoritative book in all Universities.It contains many original observations. Ibn Sina was the first to describe meningitis and pleurisy, and discovered the contagious nature of tuberculosis. He described the disease causing jaundice, studied the thorax and accurately described brain haemorrage and ankylostomiasis.The book contains on pp.1-1039 Liber Canonis in 5 books [Primus-Quintus] translated from Arabic into Latin by Gerard of Cremona [ca 1114-1187] and notes by Benedetto Rinio [1485-1565]; Libellus de removendis nocumentis quae accident in regimine sanitatis translated by Arnold of Villa Nova [ca 1240-1211]; Cantica Avicenne pp.1059-1082 by Armengaud Blasius; Libellus Avicenne pp.1083-1104 by Andreas Alpago [fl.early 16th century]; Andrea Bellunensis Arabicorum Nominum...

        Magnum Founders: In Celebration of 60 Years (Signed BAT with 16 Platinum Prints)

      Santa Barbara: Verso Limited Editions , 2009. Limited Edition . Hardcover. Fine. In 2009, fine press photography book publisher Verso Limited Editions released Magnum Founders: In celebration of 60 Years: Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, George Rodger, and David Seymor. Limited to 75 copies worldwide, the hand-bound collection contains sixteen original platinum prints (twelve bound prints - three from each photographer - and four free-standing that are suitable for framing - 2 by Henri Cartier-Bresson and one each from Robert Capa and George Rodger). Each print is estate stamped and designated as the BAT with the Henri Cartier-Bresson signed in full on the recto by Martine Franck, the widow of Henri Cartier-Bresson. This is the only copy signed by Martine Franck. The Cartier-Bresson stand alone prints were not included in the offering. These prints were presented to Stan Klimek, the platinum printmaker of the edition by the publisher after the edition was released. The Cartier-Bresson prints in Magnum Founders as well as the two free standing prints are the only authorized prints from the Cartier-Bresson estate issued since his death in 2004. Commissioned by Magnum Photos, the book was published in cooperation with the estates of the four photographers and contains a foreword by Elliott Erwitt, renowned photographer and past president of Magnum Photos. The book and prints measure 14 x 16 inches (portrait). All images in Magnum Founders were hand printed in platinum by Stan Klimek on Fabriano Artistico, a traditional 100% cotton watercolor paper. Each print is then individually stamped by the photographer\'s estate with the Cartier-Bresson prints signed by Martine Franck on the BAT copy. The text of Magnum Founders is composed in Walbaum and Helvetica Neue by the Press & Letterfoundry of Michael & Winifred Bixler. It is printed on 100% cotton Hahnemühle Photo Rag by Michael Russem at Kat Ran Press. Each book is hand-bound in quarter-leather by Mark Tomlinson featuring distinctive red Japanese crepe endsheets, red leather endbands and a unique cover construction of black and red laminated paper boards. Designed by Skolkin + Chickey, the collection is encased in an English buckram clamshell and presented in a custom-crafted walnut box suitable for display. Each handcrafted book presents some of the most defining images of each photographer\'s oeuvre. Robert Capa earned the title \"The Greatest War Photographer in the World\" after his photographs of the Spanish Civil War. The book features Capa\'s famous \"Falling Soldier\" image taken in 1936 on the Córdoba front during this conflict, as well as his World War II photograph documenting the first moments of the Americans landing on Omaha Beach. Cartier-Bresson was fascinated with painting, and particularly interested in surrealism. The prints in Magnum Founders include his playfully subversive group portrait of Valencian entertainers taken in 1933, as well as a stunning view of Muslim women on the slopes of Hari Parbal Hill, praying toward the sun rising behind the Himalayas. George Rodger\'s pictures of the London Blitz brought him to the attention of Life magazine, and from 1939 to 1945 he was one of the magazine\'s war correspondents. The book includes one of his London Blitz photographs of a young boy wearing his tin helmet with pride. The collection also features two photographs from Rodger\'s work in Africa where he spent decades documenting tribal life. Known for his compassionate treatment of his subjects, David \"Chim\" Seymour photographed children particularly well. Magnum Founders features a 1948 portrait of a young Polish orphan who was traumatized by her experiences in German concentration camps making a troubled attempt to draw a picture of her home. The book has been signed by the 55 current Magnum Photographers. There are four free standing prints that measure 14 x 16 inches and are suitable for framing. The book, case, and prints are in FINE condition.

Phenomenally scarce inventory of Sex, Seditionaries, Let it Rock, Vivienne Westwood/Malcolm McClaren clothing. Page after page after page of original garments flat photographed, probably the only record of a lot of the garments. The publicity shy Takahashi of Undercover fame has probably the biggest collection of early Westwood, and this book documents all of it. Apparently McClaren flipped his wig and thought it had to be the collection of either Rei Kawakubo or Yoji Yamamoto, as they were the only two people he remembered buying one of everything in each colour. An underground legend.

        BEATO DE LIEBANA - CODEX LAS HUELGAS (2 Bände: 1 Band Beatus-Apokalypse und 1 Kommentarband) - Faksimile-Ausgabe der Handschrift Codex M 429 der Pierpont Morgan Library in New York - LIMITIERT - Eines von 666 Exemplaren

      Scriptorium Verlag Valencia, 2004. BEATO DE LIEBANA - CODEX LAS HUELGAS - Die letzte und gewaltigste Beatus-Apokalypse * Beatus von Liebana (gestorben nach 798) war ein spanischer Mönch und Theologe. Berühmt wurde er durch seinen Kommentar zur biblischen Apokalypse in zwölf Büchern (um 776). Der Text ist in 34 Handschriften und Fragmenten des 9. bis 16. Jahrhunderts erhalten. Die illustrierten Handschriften werden jeweils ebenfalls Beatus genannt. Beatus' Motivation für den Apokalypsenkommentar war das mit dem Jahr 800 erwartete Weltende. * Der Beatus von Las Huelgas wurde 1220 vollendet. Der Las Huelgas ist die letzte und gewaltigste Abfassung der Urschriften des Kommentars zur Apokalypse. Heute werden die Fragmente der Handschrift unter anderem als Codex M 429 in der Pierpont Morgan Library in New York aufbewahrt. * Der Scriptorium Verlag Valencia schuf 2004 in aufwendiger Handarbeit lediglich 666 Exemplare (streng limitiert und handnummeriert). Diese Faksimile-Ausgabe ist beim Verlag vergriffen und dort nicht mehr erhältlich. * Angebotsumfang: 1 Band Faksimile * 2 Bände Wissenschaftlicher Kommentar * Persönliche Anlieferung (Deutschland, Österreich, Schweiz) * Persönliche Einführung in das Werk vor Ort (60 ? 90 min) * Ausstattungsdetails: Bis ins Detail dem Original aus dem 13. Jahrhundert nachempfunden * Originalformat von ca. 53,0 x 37,2 cm * 368 Seiten, dem Original entsprechend randbeschnitten * 97, teils ganzseitige und mit Gold verzierte Miniaturen * Zahllose Zierinitialen * Einband aus blindgeprägtem Wildleder mit zehn Messingbeschlägen * Aus privater Sammlung * Zustand: Tadelloses Exemplar * Limitierung: Streng limitiert auf nur 666 Exemplare weltweit * Längst vergriffen * Sammlerstück* Hintergrund zum Werk * Der 1220 vollendete Codex von Las Huelgas, seit 1910 im Besitz der Pierpont Morgan Library, New York, ist eine äußerst wertvolle Bearbeitung des nur noch fragmentarisch erhaltenen Tabara-Beatus des Malers Magius von 970. Der Las Huelgas ist die letzte und gewaltigste Abfassungen der Urschriften des Kommentars 776-84 entstandenen Handschriften. Der Tabara- oder Magius-Beatus und der Las Huelgas sind Anfang und Ende, Alpha und Omega der jüngeren und wichtigsten Beatus-Handschriftentradition. Von Beatus wissen wir wenig: Er war ein aus den Tälern der Liebana stammender Mönch, im dortigen Kloster San Martin (später San Toribio) lebend, wahrscheinlich um 730 geboren, nicht vor 798 gestorben. Der Kommentar des Beatus nimmt keine Einlassungen zur zeitgenössischen Geschichte auf. * Wie die Geheime Offenbarung des Johannes selbst sollte der Kommentar die Gläubigen ermutigen, nicht nur über das Ende der Welt, sondern auch über die neue Schöpfung, das Himmlische Jerusalem, die Stätte endgültiger Erlösung, berichten. Wie alle Beatus-Handschriften zeichnet sich der Las Huelgas Codex durch die Einfügung von Darstellungen ohne direkten Bezug zur Johannes-Apokalypse aus. Dazu zählen Porträts der vier Evangelisten, genealogische Tabellen der vier vorchristlichen Zeitalter von Adam bis Noah, von Noah zu Abraham, von Abraham zu David und von David zu Maria, der Mutter Jesu. Zu nennen wären auch grafische Tabellen zur Erklärung des Antichrist sowie eine Weltkarte. Vor allem aber ergänzt ein bebilderter Kommentar des Kirchenvaters Hieronymus zum Buch der Weissagungen des Propheten Daniel die Auslegungen und Zitate des Beatus.. Alle Preise inkl. MwSt. AGB und Kundeninformationen, Widerrufsbelehrung und Muster-Widerrufsformular finden Sie bei den Anbieterinformationen.
