        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.

This is the deluxe full-leather edition, limited to 100 copies.six-volume series addressing the unique role libraries have played in building and preserving Western culture. All included volumes are:Vol 1 - FROM MINOS TO CLEOPATRA Vol 2 - THE ROMAN WORLD - FROM CICERO TO HADRIAN Vol 3 - THE BYZANTINE WORLD - FROM CONSTANTINE THE GREAT TO CARDINAL BESSARION Vol 4 - THE MEDIEVAL WORLD IN THE WEST - FROM CASSIODORUS TO FURNIVAL Vol 5 - THE RENAISSANCE - FROM PETRARCH TO MICHELANGELO Vol 6 - EPILOGUE AND GENERAL INDEXMr. Staikos has become one of our foremost scholars on library history, writing such books as this, as well as works like "The Great Libraries," a classic in its field.Vol 1 - The first volume reveals the rich history of the early archive libraries from Crete to the famous library of the Ptolemies in Alexandria. Through well-researched text and many full-color illustrations, the author guides his readers over 1800 years of mankind's struggle to preserve his knowledge by the written word.Vol 2 - The second volume continues Staikos' brilliant history of the library from the early days of the Roman Republic to the "Golden Age" of Imperial Rome and the Emperor Hadrian. Extensively researched and beautifully illustrated with many rare photographs and drawings. Printed in Athens with careful attention to detail.Vol 3 - The third volume of The History of the Library spans a period of more than a thousand years and covers an area stretching from Alexandria and Trebizond to Calabria and Sicily in the south of Italy. The author explores the end of the ancient world and the closure and destruction of its monumental libraries, and describes the formation of the great monastic libraries, such as St. Catherine's on Mount Sinai, the Monastery of Studius in Constantinople, the group of monasteries on Mount Athos and the famous library in the Monastery of St. John on Patmos. Finally, he examines all the known palace, public, university and private libraries in the whole of the Byzantine Empire, and discusses the book trade as well.Among the libraries included in this third volume are those formed in the states that emerged after the fall of Constantinople to the Crusaders in 1204, such as the Empires of Nicaea and Trebizond, the Despotate of Epirus and the Kingdom of Thessalonica. In addition, special attention is given to the book collections of monasteries in the Kingdom of Cyprus and the libraries in the Despotate of the Morea, one of the last Greek bastions to hold out against the Turkish conquest, where the famous Neoplatonist philosopher Plethon taught.Altogether there are nine chapters in this volume and the text is enlivened with more than two hundred color and black-and-white illustrations covering a wide variety of subjects, such as illuminated manuscripts, engravings, maps, drawings, archaeological sites and imaginary and real library interiors. The ninth chapter deals with the architectural characteristics of Byzantine libraries from the end of Late Antiquity to the monastic libraries of the eleventh century onwards.Vol 4 - The fourth volume discusses the publishing procedure for secular and religious writings of late antiquity and the factors that led to the impoverishment of the monumental libraries in Rome. New centers of learning grew up in the monasteries, where great libraries containing educational and instructive books and representative works of Christian literature came into being. Monastic libraries were founded throughout Europe, including the regions with Celtic and Anglo-Saxon populations: those at Monte Cassino, Bobbio, St. Gallen, Fulda, Cluny and elsewhere are dealt with extensively. Mention is also made of the libraries founded in universities and of the new philosophy of forming school libraries, as in Bologna and Paris.Eight chapters unfold the events that influenced the tradition of libraries in the West beginning when Christianity was imposed as the official religion of the Empire. The first chapter includes the realignment of populations of the North, the formation of new kingdoms, and the emergence of new intellectual centres. The more general movement of books is contrasted to the reproduction of books with Roman literary works of the Late Roman period and the issue of Christian education is touched upon discussing its models according to the Church Fathers, as well as the ancient personalities who exchanged letters with Christians on the topic of the role played by monastic centres in relation to books.Chapter two presents the practices of authorship and publication, the reproduction of books, and their availability movement according to St. Jerome. An attempt is also made to reconstruct the library of St. Augustine, calculating which books he would have required in order to complete his written works. Lastly, the Vivarium is also described as a model monastic centre, as are the role of the scriptorium and the significance of the Bible in the Christian conscience. The third chapter is devoted to the British Isles: the promotion of regional tribes to kingdoms, the course of their conversion to Christianity, and the nature of the education cultivated in the monastic centres of the period. Mention is also made of the role played by the various local centres in the preservation of ancient literature, and its transfusion by missionaries to Continental Europe from the pre-Carolingian era on.The fourth chapter deals with the Carolingian era, Charlemagne's contribution to upgrading schooling, the foundation of a considerable number of monastic centres based on books, and the chronicle of the founding of Charlemagne's personal library. There is also an extensive description of two major monastic centres of books, St. Gallen and Corbie, as well as descriptions of their scriptorium and library. Chapter five assesses the influence exerted by the Carolingian period in the diffusion of knowledge and books in general and gives examples of the private libraries of men and officials of the Church. The birth of a new family of books is noted as national languages find their place, and educational centres and their libraries are established in cathedrals.The birth of the university in all the European countries is the subject of the sixth chapter, as an unprecedented system in regard to books, and an indispensable tool for education. There is an extensive description of the Sorbonne's college library and of the new teaching methods, comprising theology and a reassessment of the Aristotelian corpus. The interests of eminent men of letters are outlined in chapter seven, in the matter of books and the genesis of the French royal library, with a chronicle of the papal library at Avignon and at Hereford Cathedral.Finally, chapter eight is an overview of the installation of the library as architecture. The diverse bookstands serving as diminutive 'libraries' are described, up to the time when chambers were set aside to function as libraries.Vol 5 - With the publication of Volume V, the last stage in the development of the library is revealed. Like the rest of the books in The History of the Library series, this volume is beautifully designed and fully illustrated in color.This fifth and final volume of The History of the Library in Western Civilization contains eight chapters giving a comprehensive account of the transition from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance and the effects of the revival of interest in the Greco-Roman tradition on the European cultural scene, at both the secular and religious level.The first chapter looks at the early exponents of humanism in Europe and assesses their role in the revival and promotion of classical thinking. It also describes the particular characteristics of the books in the libraries of pioneers of the humanist movement, such as Petrarch, Boccaccio, and Leonzio Pilato, and the organization of the first bilingual library of the Renaissance by Palla Strozzi in Florence.With Byzantine scholars leaving Constantinople and settling at first in Italy, bringing their fine collections of books with them, the second chapter describes the 'brain drain' from East to West in the fifteenth century. It discusses the systematic study and diffusion of the Greek language, while including brief historical accounts of three humanistic libraries: those of Novello Malatesta and Cardinal Bessarion, and the Vatican Library. Three more great libraries: those of King Matthias Corvinus, Janus Pannonius, and the Medici family are described in the third chapter, as the part played by the invention of printing in the spread of learning and the formation of libraries is explored.The fourth chapter describes the character of French humanism and the role of the scholarly circle in Paris that sowed the seeds of humanist learning, and gives the salient facts about its leading members. There is a section on the formation of the French royal library, its contents, and the persons chiefly responsible for its growth, and another dealing with the contribution made by French printers to the spread of humanism and of books in general.With a long section on Erasmus, the fifth chapter examines his study of scholarly books, his work as an editor, his edition of the New Testament, and the manuscripts that provided him with his material. Erasmus's correspondence with civic and ecclesiastical dignitaries, scholars, and printers around Europe implies the existence of a 'common library' shared by the humanists. Also in the fifth chapter is a discussion of Geneva's position as a publishing centre of books by Reformers and a refuge for those who supported Luther and Calvin's objections to the practices of the Catholic Church.The next chapter is chiefly concerned with those parts of every library that contained copies of the new Christian literature embodied in the writings of the Reformation and Counter-Reformation, new translations of the Bible into the vernacular, and the many books written about religious disputes. It covers the dispersal of the monastic libraries in England and discusses the libraries of men of letters and scholars throughout Europe. Furthermore, in the seventh chapter, insight is given into the nature of the new libraries created in the late sixteenth century, containing contemporary pity works and prose and verse adaptations of medieval classics in booklet form. It concludes with a chronicle of the founding of the Oxford University library by Sir Thomas Bodley.The final chapter oversees the Renaissance library architecture and the great changes in library design that resulted from the creation of many public libraries and the opening of libraries generally to a wider public. The three-aisled library, designed by Michelozzo, is introduced, and its influence on monastic libraries in Italy, and to the libraries designed by Domenico Fontana, Jacopo Sansovino, Michelangelo, and others is explained.Vol 6 - This extensive index on all five volumes will identify all proper names, places, and subjects covered in this comprehensive and scholarly series.Order all five volumes of The History of the Library in Western Civilization series at one time and get the Index volume for free.Co-published with HES & DE GRAAF Publishers BV and Kotinos Publications.

      N.Y./ New York: Hippocampus Press, 2004, 2004, 2005, 2005, 2006, 2008, 1st edition, First Printing for All, New York, NY - ------------5 volumes plus a CD, CD contains all the material found in The Collected Essays as well as the complete run of The Conservative, all 5 books are Very Fine in Very Fine dustjackets, volume 5 is in original shrinkwrap, all are unread, the CD is in original shrinkwrap, --JOURNALISM, 440 pages -Discovering the amateur press in 1914, Lovecraft immediately flooded the many small papers of his friends and colleagues with contributions discussing the nature, purpose, and future of amateur journalism. He also edited his own magazine, The Conservative (1915-23), filling it with additional essays. In these articles Lovecraft discusses the conflict between the United and the National Amateur Press Associations; the "halcyon days" of the amateur movement (1885-95); and the "needs and betterment" of the amateur cause. We read of Lovecraft's bitter feuds with his fellow amateurs; his exhaustive critiques of their writing; and, most poignant of all, his touching affirmation of "What Amateurdom and I Have Done for Each Other," in which he concludes simply: "What Amateur Journalism has given me is—life itself." --LITERARY, 280 pages - Lovecraft's writings in the realm of literary criticism are unfailingly acute and cover a surprisingly wide range. Besides his authoritative early essay on "The Literature of Rome" (1918), other works condemn free verse and simple spelling, and devote attention to neglected poets. Discovering weird fiction as his chosen field, he produced such scintillating essays as "Lord Dunsany and His Work" (1922) and "Supernatural Horror in Literature" (1927), along with essays on Frank Belknap Long and Clark Ashton Smith. Late in life Lovecraft codified his grasp of weird literature by writing such trenchant pieces as "Notes on Writing Weird Fiction" (1933) and "Some Notes on Interplanetary Fiction" (1934). One of his last writings, "Suggestions for a Reading Guide" (1936), is a comprehensive discussion of world literature --SCIENCE, 357 pages - A self-proclaimed "mechanistic materialist," Lovecraft took an unremittingly scientific view of reality. This perspective informed the whole of his literary output, but is nowhere so clearly seen as in this assemblage of his writings on science. Beginning with the scientific journals, treatises and astronomy columns of his early years, and continuing throughout his life, these writings illuminate Lovecraft's thought in a unique, and until now, largely unappreciated way. As a bonus, almost two-dozen of HPL's hand lettered star maps are reproduced. -- TRAVEL, 300 pages - Far from being a recluse, H. P. Lovecraft traveled widely -- ranging as far north as Quebec, as far south as Florida and Louisiana, and as far west as Ohio. He wrote interestingly and at length about these expeditions. Collected here are all HPL's formal travelogues, including "Vermont-A First Impression" (1927), "Observations on Several Parts of America" (1928), "Travels in the Provinces of America" (1929), and "An Account of a Visit to Charleston" (1930). Also included is A Description of the Town of Quebeck, in New France, Lately Added to His Britannick Majesty's Dominions, which, at 75,000 words, was Lovecraft's longest work. As a bonus, all of Lovecraft's hand-drawn maps and illustrations of the regions he visited are reproduced --PHILOSOPHY, 382 pages - In this fifth and final volume of Lovecraft’s Collected Essays will be found a rich vein of Lovecraft’s philosophical writings. A lifelong student of metaphysics, ethics, aesthetics, and other branches of philosophy, Lovecraft early declared himself a forthright materialist and atheist, and defended his views in numerous controversies with colleagues. Such essays as Idealism and Materialism A Reflection and the In Defence of Dagon essays outline the essentials of Lovecraft’s philosophical thought, including such issues as free will, the improbability of theism, and cosmic pessimism. In his later years the problems of politics and economics came to the [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Discovering weird fiction as his chosen field, he produced such scintillating essays as "Lord Dunsany and His Work" (1922) and "Supernatural Horror in Literature" (1927), along with essays on Frank Belknap Long and Clark Ashton Smith. Late in life Lovecraft codified his grasp of weird literature by writing such trenchant pieces as "Notes on Writing Weird Fiction" (1933) and "Some Notes on Interplanetary Fiction" (1934). One of his last writings, "Suggestions for a Reading Guide" (1936), is a comprehensive discussion of world literature --SCIENCE, 357 pages - A self-proclaimed "mechanistic materialist," Lovecraft took an unremittingly scientific view of reality. This perspective informed the whole of his literary output, but is nowhere so clearly seen as in this assemblage of his writings on science. Beginning with the scientific journals, treatises and astronomy columns of his early years, and continuing throughout his life, these writings illuminate Lovecraft's thought in a unique, and until now, largely unappreciated way. As a bonus, almost two-dozen of HPL's hand lettered star maps are reproduced. -- TRAVEL, 300 pages - Far from being a recluse, H. P. Lovecraft traveled widely -- ranging as far north as Quebec, as far south as Florida and Louisiana, and as far west as Ohio. He wrote interestingly and at length about these expeditions. Collected here are all HPL's formal travelogues, including "Vermont-A First Impression" (1927), "Observations on Several Parts of America" (1928), "Travels in the Provinces of America" (1929), and "An Account of a Visit to Charleston" (1930). Also included is A Description of the Town of Quebeck, in New France, Lately Added to His Britannick Majesty's Dominions, which, at 75,000 words, was Lovecraft's longest work. As a bonus, all of Lovecraft's hand-drawn maps and illustrations of the regions he visited are reproduced --PHILOSOPHY, 382 pages - In this fifth and final volume of Lovecraft?s Collected Essays will be found a rich vein of Lovecraft?s philosophical writings. A lifelong student of metaphysics, ethics, aesthetics, and other branches of philosophy, Lovecraft early declared himself a forthright materialist and atheist, and defended his views in numerous controversies with colleagues. Such essays as Idealism and Materialism A Reflection and the In Defence of Dagon essays outline the essentials of Lovecraft?s philosophical thought, including such issues as free will, the improbability of theism, and cosmic pessimism. In his later years the problems of politics and economics came to the forefront of his attention, and in the essays Some Repetitions on the Times, A Layman Looks at the Government, and the unpublished The Journal and the New Deal Lovecraft vigorously argues for a moderate socialism to relieve the widespread unemployment brought on by the Depression. The problem of art in the modern age also concerned Lovecraft, and in the unpublished essay Living Heritage: Roman Architecture in Today?s America Lovecraft condemns modern functionalist architecture as inherently ugly and the product of sterile theory. This volume also contains Lovecraft?s autobiographical essays, including the delightful A Confession of Unfaith telling of his shedding of religious belief, and the piquant -Cats and Dogs,- in which cats stand as sybols for the abstract beauty of a boundless cosmos. --All texts are extensively annotated, with critical and bibliographical notes, by S. T. Joshi ---CD - Our groundbreaking CD-ROM incorporates not only the text of the entire five volumes of H. P. Lovecraft's COLLECTED ESSAYS, with annotations, bibliographical citations, and introductions, but also the complete texts of Lovecraft's own journal The Conservative, plus actual scans of the entire run of the journal. This amazing archive is fully searchable, so scholars can readily locate and identify the most useful citations. For instance, searching "Boston" returns 224 instances spread through the five volumes of essays, plus four results in The Conservative. Results of searches are presented in a separate window, assembled in easy-to-read listings which link back to the source text. Many of Lovecraft's own illustrations and star maps are also incorporated in remarkable clarity, including some appearing in full color for the first time. Other unique features of this electronic edition include links between the essays and chronological and alphabetical listings of all of Lovecraft?s works. Whether the task is to locate a dim-remembered phrase from "A Descent to Avernus," or finding all of HPL's appearances in Dowdell's Bearcat, research was never easier! Comprising over a million words, with this handy, portable CD-ROM Lovecraftians need never lack suitable reading material again. CD-ROM designed and implemented by David E. Schultz, with the assistance of Donovan K. Loucks, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Fine (see description)/Very Fine (see description). Illus. by Virgil Finlay Cover Art.

        An Amphora and a Fish.

      Ithaca, New York:: Kumi Korf ,, 2004.. Edition of 3 + 1 AP + 1 Prototype. 20.5 x 24.25 x 1.25"; 7 pages. Intaglio plates printed on Akatosashi paper. Letterpress. Japanese papers. Text printed by Blacks Corner Letterpress. Binding designed and executed by the artist. An original story by Kumi Korf accompanied by her illustrations in intaglio. Kumi Korf: "The visual experiences that move me, color, composition, and luminosity, are in nature around me. I feel that I am grounded in observation of it. I hope that the translation of what I observe turns into color, shapes, and brush strokes, and it is my wish to evoke the spiritual through the visual." Mark Dimunation (Chief of the Rare Book and Special Collections Division, Library of Congress): "Kumi Korf's artists' books are not only concerned with structure, but also with printmaking and the relationship of illustration to text. They are extremely complicated, very rich. I feel they are good representations of a certain kind of work that's being done in America. So that's why her particular books have been added to the Library of Congress. "Her books have interesting elements of construction, questioning how a book operates, but more importantly and I think most expressively of Kumi is the intense quality of the prints. They are both an important aspect of her Japanese background, but they're being done in a very modern American way. Her prints tell the story, but they also move you through the book. And because many of her prints are large, and broken up, they have an abstract level to them that reads as a very modern American book. They document the Book Arts movement in America on many different levels.
