        Tempete et Calme. Poeme de Jules Verne.

      Verdigris Press, Octon, France 2004 - One of 38 copies only, all on Hahnemuhle paper, each copy hand-numbered and signed by the artist Judith Rothchild and the printer, Mark Lintott. Page size: 11-3/4 inches x 5-15/16 inches; 4 leaves + colophon printed on gray paper mounted on inside rear cover. Bound by Mark Lintott: leporello style, but on the vertical, original screen prints by Judith Rothchild in subtle shades of gray on the front and back boards, with gray silk ribbon pull at bottom of front board, housed in publisher's clamshell box of gray paper, title printed in black on front panel, lined with screen prints made by Rothchild in shades of gray, fine. Jules Verne's poem was written in 1848 when the author was just 20. The poem literally passes through a storm before reaching safe haven on the other side. The text is superimposed on a series of four of Rothchild's ominous mezzotints which start with a threatening sky, go to the complete blackness of the storm and then to clouds quickly moving to sunlight. The text is hand set and letterpress printed in Vendome romain on an Albion press by Mark Lintott. Considering world events of 1848, Verne shows himself to be an optimist with this moving verse admirably served by Rothchild's handsome images which really give a sense of the speed and drama of the storm. Meticulously crafted, this is a lovely book. Selected for inclusion in Wellesley College exhibition and catalogue, RESONANCE AND RESPONSE (2005). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Wonderful Wizard of Oz: Hand-colored Laser Prints.

      Great Barrington, MA Michael McCurdy 2004 - Quarto. One of eight copies. A suite of twenty-five laser prints of drawings by Michael McCurdy, each hand-colored, signed, and numbered by the artist. The drawings were originally done by McCurdy at the request of the University Press of Kansas, which commissioned the artist to illustrate its Kansas Centennial Edition of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz in 1999. McCurdy's drawings are bold and strong, yet still dream-like, providing a new interpretation of Baum's classic children's tale. The prints are carefully hand-colored with subtle tints and tone. The prints are housed in an emerald green clamshell box, together with a copy of the book, which is signed by the artist with an original drawing of the Scarecrow. In addition to McCurdy's illustrations, the Centennial Edition features a Foreword by Ray Bradbury. Extremely fine.

        EL AMOR COAGULADO" ("COAGULATED LOVE") : VINTAGE LIMITED EDITION PRINT

      Buenos Aires, Argentina: Luis Gonzalez Palma Studio, 2004. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. As New/No Dust Jacket, As Issued.. Buenos Aires, Argentina: Luis Gonzalez Palma Studio, 2004. Hardcover. As New/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. 1 pages. Rare Luis Gonzalez Palma collectible piece. A pristine copy of "El Amor Coagulado" vintage original print framed on thick, museum-standard Plexiglas under the direct supervision of the artist/photographer. Limited Edition of 15 copies. Gonzalez Palma editions and does not reissue any of his prints once the edition is sold out. An austerely elegant production by Luis Gonzalez Palma: Gallery print-size format. Actual size is 20 X 24 inches. The piece weighs 10 pounds. Vintage original print by Luis Gonzalez Palma. Every print in the edition is unique: The artist/photographer produced the image in Kodalith then hand-pasted solid 22-karat gold leaf embedded with resin over it. The way that the actual print glows radiantly against the light cannot be captured in any printed or digital reproduction of it. Without DJ, as issued. Presents one of Luis Gonzalez Palma&#39;s most beautiful images, "El Amor Coagulado" (2004). "Coagulated Love" represents work that takes his Romanticism in a new direction. Impeccably conceived and produced, it is part of current work that mines such timeless subjects as the passage of time, the dream-like character of memory, and the fundamentally subjective nature of reality. Instead of gazing at the viewer, we see only the Woman&#39;s back. The wider view, which shows a Colonial-ornate room setting, momentarily distracts the viewer from the image&#39;s singular "touch", a Man&#39;s hand on her left shoulder. A lyrical meditation on the dream-like character of love, which is an abstract idea and a concrete reality at the same time, "Coagulated Love" is presence as absence, absence as presence. The Woman is visible but because we do not see her face, she somehow remains invisible to us, a virtual absence. The Man is invisible but because we do see his hand, he somehow becomes visible to us, a ghostly presence. "Gonzalez Palma&#39;s images unfold with increasing significance, resulting in an underlying sense of tension and foreboding that is only slightly eased by their sheer loveliness" (A. D. Miller). "I manipulate in order to emphasize the heart-rending" (Luis Gonzalez Palma). A "must-have" print for Luis Gonzalez Palma collectors. <b><i> This vintage original print is Number 8 in the Edition of 15, indicated as such in the Certificate of Authenticity issued by Luis Gonzalez Palma through his American gallery. As far as we know, this is the only copy available online and has absolutely no flaws, a pristine beauty. The value of Luis Gonzalez Palma&#39;s prints has increased significantly over the years and will continue to do so. A rare print thus. </b></i> One of the finest living Latin-American artist/photographers. A flawless collectible print. (SEE ALSO OTHER LUIS GONZALEZ PALMA TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).

        The History Boys. An original hand-corrected script for the very first production of Bennett&#39;s multi-award-winning play

      2004. Ninety-two loose-leaved hole-punched sheets printed on rectos only. The cover sheet shows the printed text "Typed 13th January 2004 / Revised 20th January 2004 / Revised 18th February 2004" and then in Bennett&#39;s hand "Revised 16 March 2004" - just two days prior to the opening night. There are corrections and alterations in Bennett&#39;s hand on almost every page, some in pencil and others in red ink, including the replacement of a number lines by much lengthier monologues, this new text occasionally written onto the adjacent versos. In other instances replacement sheets with new dialogue have been taped over the original text or onto the versos, and some of these revisions then subsequently altered. Also included are two copies of the actors scripts, unbound A5 format, printed on both sides; the first a printed version dated 13th January 2004, and the second a photocopied typeset undated version, but clearly one of the first two revisions and including further printed alterations. These scripts came from the collection of Andrew Speed, Stage Manager of the National Theatre who occasionally appeared in certain performances as and when stand-ins were required. Almost anybody connected with the production could be called upon at any time to make up the numbers of the non-speaking cast - all that was needed was a white shirt, black trousers and the Cutlers&#39; Grammar School tie. Andrew&#39;s prop school tie is included with the scripts. A unique and very desirable item. The play opened at the Lyttelton Theatre in London on 18 May 2004 where it played to sell-out audiences and its limited run was frequently extended. Winner of the Evening Standard Award for Best Play and Best Actor (Richard Giffiths) with subsequent productions winning both a Laurence Olivier Award and Tony Award for Best Play.. No Binding. Very Good.

        THE PLOT AGAINST AMERICA

      New York City, NY: Houghton Mifflin, 2004. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. As New/As New Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: Houghton Mifflin, 2004. Hardcover. As New/As New. First Edition/First Printing. 391 pages. The author&#39;s twenty-second novel. One of the greatest novels of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a regular first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now very scarce. Explores a brilliantly imagined scenario of mass fear and takes it to its logical conclusion. Charles A. Lindbergh defeats FDR for the Presidency in 1940. Lindbergh captured the country&#39;s imagination twice: Through his solo Atlantic crossing in 1927 and the tragic kidnapping and murder of his son. He was the prototypical American hero: Brave, handsome, a "role model". He was also an isolationist, a Nazi sympathizer, and a fascist. It is these latter attributes that inform the novel. "Roth interweaves historical names such as Walter Winchell, who tries to run against Lindbergh. The twist at the end is more than surprising, it is positively ingenious. Roth has written a magnificent novel, arguably his best work in a long time. It is tempting to equate his scenario with current events, but resist, resist. Of course it is a cautionary tale, but beyond that, it is a contribution to American letters by a man working at the top of his powers" (Valerie Ryan) . In his maturity and after a lifetime of brilliant and prolific writing, Roth has pulled off the unthinkable: Another masterpiece. A "must-have" title for Philip Roth collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Philip Roth. This title is now highly collectible. This is one of very few signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> Six of Philip Roth&#39;s novels were selected as among the Top 20 works of American fiction of the last 25 years: "American Pastoral", "The Counterlife", "Operation Shylock", "Sabbath&#39;s Theater", "The Human Stain", and "The Plot Against America". One of the greatest living writers. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER PHILIP ROTH TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0618509283.

        BILL CLINTON: MY LIFE

      New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 2004. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. As New/As New Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 2004. Hardcover. As New/As New. First Edition/First Printing. 1008 pages. The author&#39;s memoir. Now considered a contemporary classic. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. The true First Edition actually has many typographical errors, but one stands out because what it says means something other than what President Clinton obviously meant to say. In the Acknowledgment Page, after thanking everybody, Hillary, and his Mother, the last sentence goes: "None of them are responsible for the failure of my life but for whatever good has come out of it they deserve much of the credit". The word "failure" should be "failures", was quickly noticed by proof-reader-caliber readers and immediately corrected. It is therefore not clear how many so-called First Editions there really are. Presents President Clinton&#39;s absorbing account of his larger-than-life life. There is no living American politician/statesman who is more revered and reviled, admired and detested, loved and hated than the man who prefers to be known simply as Bill Clinton. "An exhaustive, soul-searching memoir, a refreshingly candid look at the former President as a son, brother, teacher, father, husband, and public figure. Clinton painstakingly outlines the history behind his greatest successes and failures, including his dedication to educational and economic reform, his war against a vast right-wing operation determined to destroy him, and the morally indefensible acts for which he was impeached" (Daphne Durham). A most special piece of Americana that will outlive the Presidential and post-Presidential life it often movingly tells. A "must-have" title for Bill Clinton and Americana collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Bill Clinton. It is signed directly on the page, not on a tipped-in page or a bookplate, as the Limited Editions are. Laid-in is Ticket Number 1003 for the Hue-Man Bookstore Signing in Harlem, the first and most sentimental of President Clinton&#39;s national book tour. The signing was limited to 2000 individuals, one copy per person. People waited patiently in line from eight to eighteen hours to get their book signed. This title is now highly collectible. This is one of very few signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and has absolutely no flaws, a pristine beauty. The First Edition, not the Limited Editions, will always be the edition to own. Copies available online command as much as $4000. Dealers are clearly in no great hurry to sell their remaining copy or copies because the book&#39;s collectible value will survive the fluctuations of celebrity and the hubris of Pretender-Presidents. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> Lavishly illustrated with black-and-white photographs from the author&#39;s personal collection. One of the finest Presidential memoirs ever written. A flawless collectible copy. . ISBN 0375414576.

        The Wonderful Wizard of Oz: Hand-colored Laser Prints

      Great Barrington, MA: Michael McCurdy, 2004. Quarto. One of eight copies. A suite of twenty-five laser prints of drawings by Michael McCurdy, each hand-colored, signed, and numbered by the artist. The drawings were originally done by McCurdy at the request of the University Press of Kansas, which commissioned the artist to illustrate its Kansas Centennial Edition of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz in 1999. McCurdy&#39;s drawings are bold and strong, yet still dream-like, providing a new interpretation of Baum&#39;s classic children&#39;s tale. The prints are carefully hand-colored with subtle tints and tone. The prints are housed in an emerald green clamshell box, together with a copy of the book, which is signed by the artist with an original drawing of the Scarecrow. In addition to McCurdy&#39;s illustrations, the Centennial Edition features a Foreword by Ray Bradbury. Extremely fine.
