        Taliesin and the Mockers [Lettered copy A of the Special Edition]

      Monmouthshire: The Old Stile Press, 2004. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Cour, Glenys. Copy A of the special edition, folio size, [56] pp., signed by Gwen Watkins and Glenys Cour. In his commendation, written to be printed in this book, Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury, says "the intensely disciplined beauty of Vernon Watkins' poetry is one of the still largely undiscovered treasures of twentieth century British literature." For Katherine Raine, Watkins was a singer born. He saw how light is woven out of the darkness, life out of death, to perfect a whole greater than either. This beautiful poem (redolent of the Genesis creation story) has long been a favourite of the artist Glenys Cour who, with her sculptor husband, Ronald, was part of the famous group in Swansea that included Vernon Watkins and his close friend Dylan Thomas. Her richly powerful collage images help to make a journey through this large format book an extraordinary experience. She is, still today, a near neighbour in Swansea of Gwen Watkins who has given so much kind encouragement to the project and, in the Afterword, has written compellingly about her husband's life and work. For the special edition, within the book, on every image-page, the artist has made additions by hand in gold which, as admirers of her paintings will know, is one of her trademarks along with the colour ultramarine, which also plays a key role in this production.___DESCRIPTION: Original paper covered boards with collaged illustration printed from photopolymer plates in blue, black and gilt, lettering in gilt to backstrip, 46 illustrations all of which are collage printed from photopolymer plates with additions by the artist, by hand, in gold; Omega type, Fabriano Tiziano paper, folio size (13.25" by 14"), unpaginated with [56] pp., limited edition, this copy A of 26 special edition copies (total edition 225), signed by Gwen Watkins and Glenys Cour. Housed in a black cloth fall-down-back box with blue lining and an illustrated paper label which repeats the illustration from the commendation page.___CONDITION: Overall fine; other than some slight creasing to the paper covering the joints, in perfect condition, crisp, clean, as new and free of prior owner markings; in a like case. A stunning production which truly must be seen to be believed.___CITATION: Per the web site of The Old Stile Press.___POSTAGE: Due to the size and weight of this volume, please note that additional postage will apply; please inquire for details.___Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        My Life.

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf,, 2004. Octavo. Original blue cloth, title to spine in gilt. With the dust jacket. Together with a typed letter signed on embossed headed note paper from Clinton's office, dated 1 May 2013, and the envelope, laid in. With 32 plates. A fine copy with some light creases to dust jacket extremities. Letter and envelope in equally fine condition. First edition, first printing, presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the title page, "To my friend Judy Collins with thanks – Bill Clinton", additionally inscribed by Collins, with a heart, on the title page, together with a typed letter signed by Clinton. The letter reads: "Dear Judy: Happy birthday! I hope this year will be full of happiness, health, and fulfillment [sic]", hand signed "Bill", with the additional postscript "we love you" beneath. Collins is a close friend of the Clinton family, and one of Bill Clinton's favourite singers; she performed at Clinton's first inauguration ball in 1993, as well as at several campaign fundraisers and the pre-inauguration concert prior to that. Her recording of Joni Mitchell's song "Chelsea Morning" was the inspiration behind the Clintons naming their daughter Chelsea, one of the dedicatees of this book. In her 2011 memoir, Collins reminisced: "For eight years … I went in and out of the White House like I owned it. I would stay up and talk to Bill until 2:30 in the morning and think, 'My God, when is this man going to let me get to bed?'" (quoted in Joseph Finder's review, The Daily Beast, 3 December 2011). A remarkable association copy from the 42nd President to the folk music icon.

        Once More* with Footnotes

      NESFA Press, Framingham, MA 2004 - Framingham, MA, NESFA Press, 2004. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. Nope, not signed by Terry Pratchett, but by Omar Rayyan who provides the cover illustration. Rayyan's style is reminiscent of Rackham's with a slightly more humorous twist, perfectly suited to Pratchett. Perhaps best known for his more recent work with the Folio Society, particularly the Lang Fairy Book and Pratchett's Mort. Uncommon signed by Rayyan, and one for the collectors. A fine copy of the first impression. Introduction by Esther Friesner, and a further introduction (apology) by Pratchett. An important work really for Pratchett, gathering together so many minor pieces in one place, including essays, short stories, articles and fan pieces. Cover art by Omar Rayyan [6418, Hyraxia Books].

        THOUGHTS FROM THE LETTERS OF PETRARCH

      Petrarch Press, Oregon House 2004 - Francesco Petrarca is best known as one of the first writers to experiment with the Italian vernacular for poetic expression. For his letters, however, he relied on the lingua franca of Latin, developing a sophisticated yet intimate style that returned to the more classical forms of Virgil and, above all, Cicero. In these letters & addressed with fine impartiality to friends, poets, and illustrious men both living and dead (including Cicero and Homer) & Petrarch ranges over a variety of subjects, yet always exhibits an earnest striving for greatness of spirit together with a sometimes rueful acknowledgment of his own shortcomings. Passages from his letters were selected and translated by Miss Johanna Lohse (1839-1911) in Florence, and published in 1900 in a charming pocket-sized edition by J. M. Dent & Co. in London. Peter Bishop chose this unusual volume, now rare, to be the first publication of the newly revived Petrarch Press. From a complete edition of 150 copies, this is one of 20 numbered copies (I-XX) printed on sheepskin parchment and bound in full Navy leather with leather bound slipcase; The first puplication since the death of the press's founder, Peter Bishop; Text, set in Dante with Goudy Lambardic Caps, was printind by hand on an 1851 Super Royal Albion press; Book design, ornaments, and binding by Peter Cohen; 5 x 7-1/2 inches, pages xvi, 134. Fine condition with some minor bumps to slipcase. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Touba New York

      New York: Khelcom New York, 2004. Folio (50.5 cm), Original cream-coloured cloth boards, with paper label to the front board, housed in matching clamshell box by Gray Parrot.First edition. Limited edition of 45 signed and numbered copies printed on Kumohadamashi paper. 33 photographs printed from copper plates as photogravures by Peter Bogardus. Calligraphic text in Arabic and English by Cherif Assane Fall, with woodblocks carved by Peter Bogardus and Cherif Assane Fall, and printed by Takuji Hamanaka. Peter Bogardus is a photographer, printer, and book artist best known for his photogravure images documenting spiritual life in Africa. All of Peter's prints are handmade in his Chelsea studio in New York, New York. He predominantly shoots on large format cameras using Kodak Tri-X film, creates his copper plates, and hand-mixes his pigments that give his images a range of tones and variations. The photographs throughout the books grew out of repeated journeys to Africa. Being drawn to parts of West Africa to seek out the music he had heard in Harlem, New York, he desired to transmute into imagery the feeling inspired by the music and music makers of the populous West African countries he visited. It was quickly evident that the inspiration for the music originated with the people and had spiritual underpinnings. The photographer was allowed into their communities and their homes because of his genuine enthusiasm for their music and a growing curiosity about the faith that inspired it.

"Mutel's interpretation of the six preludes from Bach's Cello Suites, where each note represented by a blue star, is a graphic transposition of music, a new way to look at musical notation. The perception of the music can be quiet or agitated, horizontal or vertical--a poetic visual representation of music as a celestial map."

        His Man and He.

      London: Rees & O'Neill,, 2004. Nobel Lecture December 7, 2003. Duodecimo. Original orange-brown full morocco, title to spine in gilt, initials "JMC" to front cover in gilt. Housed in the slipcase. A fine copy. First and signed limited edition, first impression, number 11 of 12 copies bound in Nigerian goatskin, inscribed by the author "How are they to be figured, this man and he? As master and slave? As brothers, twin brothers? As comrades in arms? Or as enemies, foes?". It is rare to find a work signed by the notoriously media-shy novelist, who did not appear to collect either of his Booker Prizes. Coetzee read out this story, told through the character of Robinson Crusoe, as his acceptance speech for the 2003 Nobel Prize for Literature. A further 75 copies were bound in cloth.
