        Autograph musical manuscript of "Say Thou Dost Love Me. Sonnets from the Portuguese XXI," a work for unaccompanied voices (soprano, alto, tenor and bass), signed and dated Ithaca, 21 January 2012. [Subtitle]: Written "For the 25th anniversary of The New York Virtuoso Singers, Harold Rosenbaum, Artistic Director" and dedicated to Mimi Stillman

      6 ff. Large oblong folio (375 x 292 mm.). Notated in pencil on one side of each leaf only on 14-stave Carta No. 25 music manuscript paper. With text by Elizabeth Barrett Browning commencing "Say over, say over, say over again, and yet once over again, that thou dost love me." . Stucky, a major figure on the contemporary American music scene, is one of the most highly regarded and frequently performed living composers. He won a Pulitzer Prize for his Second Concerto for Orchestra in 2005 and has written commissioned works for many of the major American orchestras. Long associated with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, where he was resident composer from 1988-2009, Stucky studied with Karel Husa at Cornell and has been a professor of composition there since 1980. "Stucky's style combines rigorous compositional techniques with direct, eloquent expression. This mixture results in colourful, variegated and attractive musical structures that exhibit clear formal patterns and carefully organized pitch arrangements. The influence of Bartók and Lutoslawski lends an Eastern European character to works such as Voyages (1984) and the Double Concerto (1985). Several other works (Boston Fancies, 1985; Concerto for Orchestra, 1986–7; Son et lumière, 1988) refer to Stravinsky in their juxtaposition of blocks of material. In later works, Stucky’s harmonic language develops from atonal aggregates like those of Berio and Lutoslawski towards harmonic complexes that allude to triadic structures." James P. Cassaro in Grove online Browning (1806-1861) was one of the most prominent poets of the Victorian era. Her acclaimed "Sonnets from the Portuguese," a collection of 44 love sonnets written just prior to her marriage to Robert Browning in 1846, were first published in 1850.

        The Mappist

      San Francisco, CA: Pacific Editions, 2005 San Francisco, CA: Pacific Editions. 2005. First Edition thus, one of 48 copies, all on BFK Rives paper, signed by the author, Barry Lopez, and the artist / designer / publisher, Charles Hobson, in pencil and numbered by Hobson. Page size: 11 inches x 12 inches. Bound: with original USGS maps for the concertina binding, which, when opened, creates its own vista of mountains and valleys representing the maps that figure so prominently in the Lopez story, covers made of paper over boards, paper reproducing a 1911 map of Bogotá from the collection of the Library of Congress, publisher's slipcase of wood- grained paper over boards with brass-toned metal label holder attached to spine of box holding white paper label with title and author in black, all suggesting a map cabinet which plays a pivotal role in Lopez's story, further housed in tan corrugated paper board slipcase, slipcase and board covers made by John DeMerrit with the assistance of Kris Langan, new. The book opens with images of hands emulating gestures of a map maker at work reproduced as digital pigment prints on transparent film. The book also contains landscape images and an image of pencils from the writing desk of Barry Lopez printed as digital pigment prints from monotypes with pastel all created by Charles Hobson. The text has been printed letterpress by Les Ferriss in Garamond Narrow type. The book and images were created by Charles Hobson who assembled the book with the assistance of Alice Shaw. Barry Lopez's THE MAPPIST was originally published in 2000 in LIGHT ACTION IN THE CARIBBEAN. It is a multi-layered story perfectly embodied by Charles Hobson's book. Themes of hidden identities searched out and deciphered, hidden intentions coded in seemingly disparate actions, and the tantalizing possibilities of bringing order to a chaotic history are beautifully served by the combination of maps that are the subject of the story and, literally, hold the story together. The story itself is certainly one of the wittiest "legends" ever devised for its surrounding map. The reader is challenged with images thrown up by the author and artist: bits of map interspersing text, bits of map as foredge and gutter outside edge on any turn of the page, a phrase full of possibilities "he was a patriot" and suggestions in the form of queries: was Lewis Mumford a populist? When "The Mappist" gives the narrator a copy of his very rare book, THE CITY OF GERANIUMS, the reader is doubly seduced with this act of generosity (or is it instinct to preserve one's values) for the words are preceded and followed by a page of transparent film with the image of a map being passed from one hand to another. Turning the film page, the reader is confronted with the act being completed and the hand off accomplished. The narrator finishes his tale with a ride down a very dark gravel road, using the sound of the tires on the crushed stone as his "map." We are left wondering where will we find our maps - and will we be able to read them - or remember what we've read. Pacific Editions' THE MAPPIST will certainly help in this ongoing quest.

      Koln, GERMANY: Benedikt Taschen Verlag, 2005. (KUBRICK, STANLEY). Castle, Alison, Jan Harlan & Christiane Kubrick. Alison Castle, Editor. THE STANLEY KUBRICK ARCHIVES - THE FIRST EDITION WITH INTERVIEW CD + "2001" FILMSTRIP. Koln, GERMANY: Benedikt Taschen Verlag, 2005. First Edition. Oblong Folio. Debossed Boards. Film Monograph. Near Fine/No Jacket - As Issued. 544pp, profusely illustrated in b&w and color. With an Audio CD. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. "The making of this book has been something of an odyssey: two years of traveling through time and space to the heart of Stanley Kubrick&#39;s universe, where I not only had the unprecedented privilege of having access to his archives, but also the invaluable guidance of those who were closest to him. Endeavoring to uncover each and every artifact that could cast light upon Kubrick&#39;s creative process, I scoured the archives, gathering the most illuminating items, from bits of paper covered with hurriedly scribbled notes to photographs taken by Kubrick on the sets of his films. Hunched over hundreds upon hundreds of contact sheets with my loupe, I was able to select images that had never been printed before, let alone seen; rifling through screenplay drafts I found references to scenes that were never filmed, and among the photos I found images of sequences that were abandoned; reading Kubrick&#39;s notes and letters, I discovered not only clues to his thought processes but also his curious love affair with various types of stationery, typewriters, and pens. Searching through the often chaotic mountains of material was an exhilarating experience: each and every "discovery" was like a minor miracle, a defining moment, an epiphany. Part two of this book features the result of this gleaning: an eclectic collection of material that represents the nuts and bolts of Kubrick&#39;s creative history. To help guide readers through the expedition is a selection of articles and essays by noted Kubrick scholars as well as a generous selection of material "from the horse&#39;s mouth" (i.e. Kubrick letters, essays, and interviews), refuting the popular misconception that Kubrick was a recluse who didn&#39;t or wouldn&#39;t talk about his work". This is Taschen&#39;s lavishly illustrated history of Kubrick&#39;s oeuvre from "Fear and Desire" through "Eyes Wide Shut" - the most comprehensive survey of the late, great director&#39;s work to date. A handsome copy of the lavish, oversized 2005 first printing complete with audio CD and twelve frame filmstrip snipped from Kubrick&#39;s own 70mm print of "2001: A Space Odyssey" (that appears only in this edition) showing just a bit of wear along the foredge of the textblock. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its weight and value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase. 3-8228-2284-1 Inventory Number: 023215&

The collaged bears in black and gold on the back of the book are collaged against paper in black or gold, framed by bronze paper collaged in shape of trees, all bears have amber or bone colored eyes sewn to the piece with black thread. The front fold-out of two dancing bears pops out when opened, surrounded by collaged trees of silver and black Japanese papers, to reveal the text, printed in black, on paler copper-colored Japanese paper, again framed by trees of black Japanese paper. The text reads, "Despite the / crooked ones /trying to stop them, / the bears continue/ to dance." This is a reference to wildlife activists in Maine attempts to pass legislation prohibiting bear baiting and inhumane bear traps. Maine is the only state to allow statewide hounding, baiting and trapping of bears. <br>See an <A HREF= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/10776.jpg >Image.</A><br>

Das auf den ersten Blick herausragendste Kennzeichen des Originals ist der Einband, eine Schmiedearbeit aus vergoldetem Silber. Sowohl die Vorder- als auch die Hinterseite sind gleich aufwändig gestaltet. Jeder der beiden Metalldeckel ist durch eine Maßwerkleiste eingefasst. Das so gebildete Innenfeld wird durch stilisierte Sonnenstrahlen ausgefüllt, die nach außen in dünne Spitzen auslaufen. In den vier Ecken und im Zentrum des Mittelfeldes befindet sich je ein Löwenkopf mit eindrucksvoller, als Strahlenkranz gestalteter Mähne.

Bound: loose as issued in cloth clamshell box by Claudia Cohen. The aquatints are in grays and blues, greens and tans, always with subtle shadings, full of texture and often three dimensional in feel.
