        An Invitation to British Columbia. A Letter from T. E. Lawrence to Martin Allerdale Grainger.

      Vancouver, British Columbia:: Heavenly Monkey ,, 2005.. Edition of 50 + 20 AP. 6 x 8"; 20 pages plus fold-out facsimile. Set in 12-pt Garamont. Printed on Heavenly Monkey Text handmade paper. Letter facsimile printed on vegetable parchment from polymer plates by David Clifford. Signed by both contributors. Issued in two states. Copies 1-10 were bound by Claudia Cohen in quarter leather and pastepaper over boards. Copies 11-50 and all A.P. copies were sewn on tapes and put in a limp case made from Reg Lissel's natural faux parchment paper, with the title printed up the spine. Heavenly Monkey: "A brief but illuminating letter, previously unrecorded (or published), by T.E. Shaw (i.e. Lawrence) written in 1929 to Martin Allerdale Grainger, BC's first chief forester, in response to his suggestion that Lawrence consider retiring in the province. The letter is reproduced in facsimile and type. Noted Lawrence scholar Jeremy Wilson (a co-proprietor of the Castle Hill Press) wrote the preface, and bookseller Don Stewart (MacLeod's Books) wrote a brief essay on Grainger's life in BC. "As a frontis, the book features a wood engraving by George Kuthan, borrowed from the extensive collection of his original blocks at the Rare Books & Special Collections Library at the University of British Columbia." Rollin Milroy, blog: "A disaster barely averted. The plan was to use the Garamont freshly cast for 'Good & Evil in the Garden', but after printing the first sheet (Jeremy's essay), the type started dissolving before my eyes. Despite the fact that it was practically new, and being printed on dampened paper with the gentlest of impression, serifs, descenders and ascenders would disappear with each pull. The project was saved with David Clifford's help: we would set Don's essay in digital Garamont and print it from polymer. But even with the greatest care, it wouldn't look the same as the sheet I'd printed, so we set both Don and Jeremy's texts in polymer, and printed them dry with David's Golding treadle. My metal type was able to handle the remaining pages in the book, none with much text. But the difference between the metal type pages, printed damp, and the polymer, printed dray, cannot be missed. The original letter reproduced in the book was issued with Copy 1, in a tray case."

        The Shadow Over Innsmouth.

      Vancouver, British Columbia:: Heavenly Monkey,, 2005.. Edition of 175. 5 x 7.5" with 150 pages. Includes a fold-out map of Innsmouth, drawn from Lovecraft's detailed descriptions of the town. Text set in Centaur and Arrighi, with Gill Shadow for display. Letterpress printed in two colors. Issued in three states: the Ichthyic (25 copies) featuring some additional material and more extensive handwork in the binding; the Batrachian (125 copies), a well designed, hand-bound copy of this classic story; and Abyssal (25 copies) which was reserved for private distribution to collaborators and friends. This is 1 of 5 of the 25 numbered I-XXV printed on NIdeggen with proofs of chapter headings bound in. Hand colored. This is a new edition of the only book Lovecraft saw published during his lifetime, similar in size and format to the original, but with the attention to typographic and production details that the story deserves. Work on this project began in 2002, with a trial edition of 10 copies for which Shinesuke Minegishi created six wood engravings based on original sketches by H. Bosch (1453-1516)—one for each chapter and the title page. These engravings, plus one new one, were republished in 2003 with extracts from the novella, in an edition of 50 copies titled The "Innsmouth Look". This edition is a letterpress edition of this 60,000-word story.

        No Country For Old Men

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2005. Signed by Cormac McCarthy. First edition / First printing. Special signed edition: One of an unknown number of copies signed by the author on a special bound-in page. Black paper-covered boards. Very fine in very fine dust jacket. A beautiful copy of this fine novel. This is a perfect copy, it has been stored flat in a dark place to avoid spine lean and fading. It was put in a clear mylar at the time of purchase and has absolutely no wear to the dust jacket. The spine ends of the text are crisp and unworn and unbent. I have looked at numerous copies online and in stores. Many have been displayed on stands, which leads to a canted spine and fading. Our copy is flawless.. Basis for the Joel and Ethan Coen's film, 2008 Academy Award Winner for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor for Javier Bardem.

        Chizu: The Map

      Tokyo, Japan: Getsuyosha/Nazraeli Press(2005). First Edition / First Printing. As New in No Dust Jacket, As Issued. Unpaginated. 40th-Anniversary Edition of the artist/photographer's masterpiece. One of the greatest Artist Books of the 20th century. Limited Slipcased Edition of 500 numbered and signed copies. Published simultaneously but should not be confused with the Japanese Edition of 1000 copies. Both Editions are now rare. A stunningly beautiful production by Kikuji Kawada: Regular-sized volume format. Black cloth boards with metallic-black titles embossed on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Kikuji Kawada. Separate Pamphlet laid into the slipcase. Pictorial hard board slipcase. Printed using the most advanced digital-reproduction technology by Kawada himself, who considers the results superior to the 1965 Edition: The plates "have a tonal clarity, warmth, and richness that offset lithography in the 1960's could not produce". Without DJ, as issued. Presents, in a definitive, Limited Edition realization, Kikuji Kawada's "Chizu". The Map as the "ultimate photobook-as-object". Originally published on August 6, 1965 to commemorate the bombing of Hiroshima, the guiding idea of Kikuji Kawada's memorial project is archaeology. Using multi-panel foldouts, the "various layers inside peel away like archeological strata. The whole process becomes one of uncovering and contemplating the ramifications of recent Japanese history. A masterly amalgam of abstraction and realism, of the specific and the ineffable, woven into a tapestry that makes the act of viewing them a process of re-creation in itself. In the central metaphor of The Map (through a series of interlocking trace marks), Kawada has conjured a brilliant simile for the photograph itself: As scientific record, memory trace, cultural repository, puzzle, and guide" (Martin Parr and Gerry Badger). An absolute "must-have" title for Kikuji Kawada collectors. This copy is one of the Nazraeli Press Limited Slipcased Edition, labelled as such on the slipcase's spine ("NZ") in order to distinguish it from the twice-as-many Japanese Edition of 1000 copies, and indicated/numbered as such on the Front Limitation Page. It is very prominently and beautifully signed, kanji style, in black ink-pen (on the very last page) by Kikuji Kawada. This title is a great art photography book. This is one of very few copies of the Limited Slipcased Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: This Limited Edition marks the very first time the title has been reissued, in response to the fact that: a) there are very few surviving copies of the 1965 First Edition; b) they are almost all in poor condition ("Very Good"); and c) yet easily command thousands of dollars when they turn up online or at auction. A rare signed copy thus. 49 plates, 23 foldouts. "Chizu" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the most brilliant artist/photographers of the 20th century. A flawless collectible copy. . ISBN 4901477161.

        Works on Paper

      Vero Beach, FL: Windsor Press, 2005. First edition. Hardcover. Fine/fine. SIGNED. 176pp. Quarto [27 cm] in pale green cloth with gilt-stamped spine. Full-color reproductions on every page. With an introduction by Margaret Atwood. Signed and inscribed by Doig in pencil on title page: "To David/ from/ Peter/ LDN/ 23 Sept/ 2014," with Doig's full name also signed below.Published to coincide with the exhibition of the same name. Known for his figurative paintings, Scottish artist Peter Doig here displays another side of his work. From the foreward: "These works explore many of the same themes and images but are not merely a preamble to the canvases. Vehicles for innovation that are full and finished entities in themselves, they have a presence which is entirely their own. Many maintain the tension between abstraction and representation that is characteristic of his painting, but the experimental nature of works on paper offers a freedom that painting does not."

        The Age Of Adolescence: Joseph Sterling Photographs 1959-1964

      Los Angeles, CA: Greybull Press(2005). First Edition / First Printing. As New in No Dust Jacket, As Issued. 133 pages. Retrospective collection of photographs. One of the best photography books of our time. Limited Clamshell Box Edition of 25 numbered and signed copies. None of the copies was commercially sold. The Limited Edition has the same ISBN as the regular trade edition. Because the publisher went out of business, it is not clear if all of the copies of the Limited Edition were ever completed. The Limited Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Joseph Sterling and Dimitri Levas: Oversize-volume format. Black cloth boards with photographic reproduction pasted on the recessed center in front, metallic-silver titles embossed on the spine and back, as issued. Photographs by Joseph Sterling. Introduction by David Travis. Original 10 X 14 inch photographic print laid into the box. Matching black clamshell box. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Germany to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents, in its most collectible format, Joseph Sterling's "The Age of Adolescence". One of the best photographic records of The American Teen-ager. "This Age sparkles with the promise of what's to come, hides its insecurities under the cover of bravado, and trembles with excitement about the here and now. From 1959 to 1964 (arguably the Adolescence of America itself), Joseph Sterling photographed teenagers, hanging out after school, at drive-ins, in fast cars. As Sterling himself defined it, 'the world of the adolescent is totally interlaced within itself and incapable of freeing itself. It whirls, rolls, and engulfs what it is allowed to engulf' "(Publisher's blurb). The "Age of Adolescence" shows American kids to be both playful and serious, friendly and menacing, cheerful and pensive. Some images anticipate the work of many contemporary photographers without their necessarily being aware of it. Their remarkable simplicity and effortless grace have re-appeared in so many images of young people ever since. Still, few photographs have the timeless appeal as Joseph Sterling's work. Closely identified with the Institute of Design (ID), Sterling has done work characterized by the technical perfection and formal experimentation identified with the Bauhaus-inspired Institute. Here, he lets go, and the result is simply wonderful. The design by Dimitri Levas, the designer of Bruce Weber's books, gives this book a contemporary look and feel that are compatible with the photographs. It is also, sadly, the last book published by Sterling, who died unexpectedly on November 12, 2010. An absolute "must-have" title for Joseph Sterling collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Edition, indicated, stamped, and hand-numbered as such on the front free endpaper, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Joseph Sterling. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. It comes with a stunningly beautiful 10 X 14 inch original photographic print that shows two teen-agers in a public beach shower (it appears on Page 90 of the book). The print is very prominently and beautifully archived, numbered, and signed in pencil on verso by the photographer: "486-25 Joseph Sterling Limited Book Edition T. A. O. L. 11/25". This title is a great photography book. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the Limited Clamshell Box Edition With Original Print available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: There is a second print selection. This is the better one. A rare signed copy thus. 128 duotone plates, 1 original print. One of the finest American photographers of our time. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER JOSEPH STERLING TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0972778853.

      Matthaes Verlag, 2005. Der Wettbewerb zwischen Küchen hat sich deutlich verschärft. Verantwortlich dafür sind im Besonderen gestiegene Anforderungen an die Qualität und die Finanzierbarkeit der angebotenen Leistungen.

Mit dem Buch Erfolgsfaktor Qualitätsmanagement in Küchen zeigen die Autoren Führungskräften und Mitarbeitern der Individual-, Gemeinschafts- und Systemgastronomie konkrete Handlungsmöglichkeiten aus der Praxis auf, wie ein Qualitätsmanagementsystem nach DIN EN ISO 9001:2000 in Küchen bestmöglich umgesetzt werden kann. Das Buch sowie eine beiliegende CD-ROM dienen als Leitfaden, Qualitätsmanagement systematisch und erfolgreich zu betreiben, um die Wettbewerbsfähigkeit und damit den Fortbestand einer Küche langfristig zu sichern.

        Goodbye, Columbus & Five Short Stories, Letting Go: Novels And Stories 1959-1962

      New York City, NY: The Library Of America(2005). First Edition / First Printing. As New in No Dust Jacket, As Issued. 913 pages. Volume One of The Library of America's definitive Collected Works of Philip Roth. The First Slipcased Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a Slipcased Edition for distribution to libraries and LOA subscribers only. None of the copies were sold to the public. The Slipcased Edition has the same ISBN as the regular trade edition. The Slipcased Edition is now rare. Printed to the highest standards on acid-free paper, utilizing sewn binding, closely woven rayon cloth boards, satin bound-in ribbon marker, and a page layout that is both readable and elegant, each volume is guaranteed to last for several generations of readers and collectors (despite frequent and regular use, the estimated life span of Library of America Editions is 1000 years; un-used, they will last forever). Each volume is scrupulously edited and annotated by Ross Miller. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Volume One of The Collected Works of Philip Roth. The two books that inaugurated the author's long, productive, and stupendous literary career. "Unlike those of us who come howling into the world, blind and bare, Mr. Roth appears with nails, hair, teeth, speaking coherently. He is skilled, witty, energetic, and performs like a virtuoso" (Saul Bellow). "One knows when one is reading something that will permanently enter the culture" (Cynthia Ozick). "Our foremost novelist since Faulkner" (Harold Bloom). Philip Roth is only the third living American writer to be so honored by The Library of America. Published in chronological order, the entire oeuvre consists of nine volumes in all and will surely be regarded as one of the "high spots" in The Library of America Series. Roth famously announced in 2012 that he has permanently stopped writing. An absolute "must-have" title for Philip Roth collectors. This copy of Volume One is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Philip Roth. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The First Slipcased Edition was distributed to libraries and LOA subscribers only. None of the copies were sold to the public. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the First "Library of America" Slipcased Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. "Goodbye, Columbus" won the National Book Award in 1959, the first of numerous major awards the writer has received. Six of Philip Roth'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's Theater", "The Human Stain", and "The Plot Against America". One of the greatest writers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER PHILIP ROTH TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1931082790.

        Kamaitachi: Photographs By Eikoh Hosoe

      New York City, NY: Aperture Foundation(2005). First Edition / First Printing. As New in As New Dust Jacket. 132 pages. The artist/photographer's masterpiece, re-presented as an Artist Book. One of the greatest art photography books of our time. Limited "Clamshell Box" Edition of 500 numbered and signed copies. Precedes and should not be confused with the regular trade edition. The Limited Edition is now rare. An exquisite production by Eikoh Hosoe, Ikko Tanaka, and Tadanori Yokoo: Oversize-volume format. Pictorial cloth boards with blue titles on spine, as issued. Photographs by Eikoh Hosoe. Choreography by Tatsumi Hijikata. Introduction by Shuzo Takiguchi. Poem by Toyoichiro Miyoshi. Clamshell box design by Tadanori Yokoo, the greatest graphic artist/designer of our time. In publisher's original shrinkwrap. Printed on pristine-white, thick uncoated stock paper in Tokyo, Japan to the highest standards. In pristine glassine DJ with blue titles on the cover, as issued. Re-presents, in a stunning Limited Edition format, Eikoh Hosoe's "Kamaitachi". The artist/photographer's masterpiece, re-imagined for our time: The book as beautiful object. Originally published in 1969, it has never before been available outside Japan and has been out-of-print for more than 40 years. "Each of the pages is printed as an individual gatefold, each of which opens to reveal a single, stunning black-and-white image. The exterior of each gatefold is printed in a spectacular azure blue. The effect of opening the book is of stepping into an unknown landscape of theater and baroque sensuality. A singular collaboration between Eikoh Hosoe and the founder of Butoh Dance, Tatsumi Hijikata: In 1965, Hosoe and Hijikata visited a small farming village in Northern Japan. Drawing in the villagers as performers and using the rice fields and rural landscape as a theatrical set for an improvisational Butoh performance, Hosoe photographed Hijikata's spontaneous interactions with the landscape and with the people they encountered. Hosoe has called the project 'a subjective documentary', an investigation of tradition and an exploration both personal and symbolic of the convulsions of Japanese society. It was inspired by the legend of the Kamaitachi, a weasel-like demon who haunts the rice fields and slashes those who encounter him" (Publisher's blurb). Hosoe called "Kamaitachi" a subjective documentary because it is his most personal work, a poignant attempt to recapture his wartime childhood in a visual (rather than narrative) way, by capturing Hijikata's choreographic flourish and grace in panoramic landscapes. An absolute "must-have" title for Eikoh Hosoe collectors. This copy is one of the Limited "Clamshell Box" Edition, indicated as such on the Front Limitation Slip, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in azure-blue ink-pen by Eikoh Hosoe. Hosoe also stamped it with his red "chop". This title is a great art photography book. This is one of very few copies of the Limited Edition still available online, is still in the publisher's original shrinkwrap, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: The clamshell box of many copies was very badly damaged in transit because of poor packing on the publisher's part, resulting in splits at the edges, bumps, and crushed corners. The edition that was simultaneously released in Japan does not come in Tadanori Yokoo's clamshell box, but in a simple slipcase. Copies of the 1969 original now command more than $8000. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. 40 tritone plates. "Ba Ra Kei" and "Kamaitachi" were selected as two of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest artist/photographers of the 20th century. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER EIKOH HOSOE TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1931788804.
