        Souk Waqif - Once upon a Time

      Beirut: Art & Privilege, Diwan Amiri, , 2006. Landscape quarto. Original black cloth, title in silver to the spine and upper board. With the dust jacket. Largely black and white photographic plates, section dividers of heavy white paper, with 8 translucent calque pages with the title and colour concept drawings by the photographer. Jacket just a little rubbed, else very good. First edition. Uncommon photobook by the Lebanese-born photojournalist and portraitist Maher Attar, recording the renovation of the old Souk in Doha. The text is by Mohamed Ali Abdullah the architect on the project which won the Aga Khan Architectural Award for 2010; "The revitalisation project, a unique architectural revival of one of the most important heritage sites in Doha, was based on a thorough study of the history of the market and its buildings, and aimed to reverse the dilapidation of the historic structures and remove inappropriate alterations and additions. The architect attempted to rejuvenate the memory of the place: modern buildings were demolished; metal sheeting on roofs was replaced with traditionally built roofs of dangeal wood and bamboo with a binding layer of clay and straw, and traditional strategies to insulate the buildings against extreme heat were re-introduced" (AKAA website). Just 2 copies located of the English language edition on OCLC - BnF and the Virginia Commonwealth University in Qatar - alongside 2 copies of the simultaneously issued French edition, BnF and Rhode Island College.

        PETER BEARD: THE COLLECTORS' EDITION - NUMBERED AND SIGNED BY THE PHOTOGRAPHER WITH THE SIGNED PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINT "965 ELEPHANTS

      (BEARD, PETER). Beard, Peter & Owen Edwards. Nejma Beard & David Fahey, Editors. PETER BEARD: THE COLLECTORS' EDITION - NUMBERED AND SIGNED BY THE PHOTOGRAPHER WITH THE SIGNED PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINT "965 ELEPHANTS". Signed and Numbered with a Photographic Print. Koln, GERMANY: Benedikt Taschen Verlag, 2006. First Edition 1/125 Deluxe. Elephant Folio. Full Leather, Boxed. Photography Monograph. As New/No Jacket - As Issued. np (616pp), profusely illustrated in color and b&w. Text in English, German and French. Art Direction and Design by Ruth Ansel. One of the most lavish books published to date on the work of a single photographer, Benedikt Taschen's sumptuous 2006 monograph on Peter Beard rivals Helmut Newton's "Sumo" in both scale and grandeur. "Photographer, collector, diarist, and writer of books Peter Beard has fashioned his life into a work of art; the illustrated diaries he kept from a young age evolved into a serious career as an artist and earned him a central position in the international art world. He was painted by Francis Bacon, painted on by Salvador Dali, and made diaries with Andy Warhol; he toured with Truman Capote and the Rolling Stones, created books with Jacqueline Onassis and Mick Jagger - all of whom are brought to life, literally and figuratively, in his work. As a fashion photographer, he took Vogue stars like Veruschka to Africa and brought new ones - most notably Iman - back to the U.S. with him. Spilling out over the pages of this massive tome, Peter Beard's collages are reproduced as a group for the first time at the size they have always meant to be seen, some as foldouts. Hundreds of smaller-scale works and diaries fill the remaining spreads - magnified to show every detail, from Beard's meticulous handwriting and old-master-inspired drawings to stones and bones and bits of animals pasted to the page. All color illustrations are color-separated and reproduced in Pan4C, the finest reproduction technique available today, which provides unequalled intensity and color range". This elephant folio sized book is bound in full leather over boards, housed in a velvet-lined shipping crate, and is accompanied by a wooden viewing stand that is reminiscent of an African headrest. Its companion volume: "PB2" contains an image index with captions for all the pictures reproduced in the main book, personal photos and early work of the artist, an interview with the artist by Steven M. L. Aronson, a facsimile reprint of Beard's 1993 handwritten essay from the sold-out first issue of "Blind Spot" magazine, an extensive bibliography, and an exhibition history. A pristine example of the Taschen Collectors' Edition limited to one hundred and twenty-five copies SIGNED AND NUMBERED by Peter Beard containing the SIGNED AND NUMBERED 20 x 16" Gelatin silver black and white photographic print "965 Elephants" unopened in the publisher's original printed shipping carton, as issued.

        THE VIEW FROM CASTLE ROCK

      Toronto, Canada: McClelland & Stewart, 2006. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. Toronto, Canada: McClelland & Stewart, 2006. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 360 pages. The author's twelfth collection of short stories. One of Alice Munro's greatest achievements. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. Presents Alice Munro's twelfth collection of short stories. It is one of her most beloved books, for "sentimental" reasons, justifiably so: Twelve is a Chekhovian achievement in terms of sheer quantity and quality, which are one and the same thing in Munro's case. Its publication prompted Munro to announce, prematurely, the end of her writing career, showing how with the greatest writers, fiction is profoundly intuitive, guided by impulse and dictated by the unconscious. Even if she did not know it at the time, she had two more (great) books to go. The back DJ flap sums up Munro's career and achievement by (almost diffidently) stating that "she has been mentioned as a potential winner of the Nobel Prize". Not anymore: "A stunningly precise writer who is often able to say more in 30 pages than an ordinary novelist is capable of in 300. Munro writes about what are usually called ordinary people, but her intelligence, compassion, and astonishing power of perception enable her to give their lives a remarkable dignity, indeed redemption, since she shows how much of The Extraordinary can fit into that jam-packed emptiness called The Ordinary" (Nobel Prize Citation). An absolute "must-have" title for Alice Munro collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in blue ink-pen on the title page by Alice Munro. She signed on top of the page, making her signature even more prominent. Throughout her long career, Munro made very few public appearances, and is a reluctant signer at best. As such, most of her books are signed on a bookplate, which are much less desirable than copies signed on either the title page or tipped-in page. This title is a classic. This is one of very few signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Its value will not only keep but increase over time. A rare signed copy thus. Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2013. One of the greatest living writers. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ALICE MUNRO TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0771065264.

        The Surinam Album

      The Folio Society, London 2006 - 87 p. Large volume unpaginated. One b&w frontispiece in the commentary volume. 91 tipped-in coloured plates. Extra copies of plates 7, 56 and 65 in an envelope at rear. Limited to 1000 copies. Large illustration volume is one quarter leather with paper boards. The Folio Society commissioned David Eccles to produce a cover design directly inspired by Merian's depiction of the hawk moth found in plate 38. Smaller volume is green cloth. In matching green case with a compartment for the smaller volume. Maria Sibylla Merian (1647 - 1717) was a naturalist and scientific illustrator who studied plants and insects and made detailed paintings about them. Her detailed observations and documentation of the metamorphosis of the butterfly make her a significant, albeit not well known, contributor to entomology. As one of the foremost botanical and naturalist artists of all time, Merian's achievements have been recognized with no fewer than six plants, nine butterflies and two beetles named after her. This Folio Society set contains 91 watercolour facsimiles from the Maria Sibylla Merian Collection in the British Museum, never before reproduced. Julie Harvey of the Entomology Library at the Natural History Museum has written a fascinating introduction to Merian's work, setting it in context and providing an overview of her life and times. A truly beautiful collection. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Le pompe funebri, overo Aminta, e Clori. Favola Silvestre.

      In 4to (cm 18,5); cartonato posteriore; pp. (4) 160. Marca tipografica al titolo. Ottima copia.PRIMA EDIZIONE della prima opera pubblicata di Cesare Cremonini, un dramma pastorale dedicato ad Alfonso II d'Este, che fu messo in scena presso la corte di Ferrara in presenza di Eleonora d'Este. «Cremonini's Pompe is otherwise marked by a spiritual and moral dimension conspicuously absent from [Tasso's] Aminta, though which had been hinted at obliquely in other plays under the veil of pagan mythology. The action of the Pompe is framed by a sacrifice and games in honor of the dead shepherd - lover, Dafni, whose shade recites the prologue, and it features a priest and a minister who note at length the necessity of religion in pastoral life. Even the satyr, Rustico, comments on the importance of piety. More unusually, philosophical and theological ideas are raised independently of the plot, such as the affirmation of the immortality of the soul and of Free Will. The introduction of such questions, and especially of moralizing and pious sententiae, became more noticeable in later pastoral drama, particularly after the publication of Guarini's Pastor fido» (L. Sampson, Pastoral Drama in Early Modern Italy. The Making of a New Genre, London, 2006, pp. 101 - 102).«Le Pompe funebri è la più nota tra i lavori poetici di Cremonini, come risulta anche dalla fortuna a stampa (edizioni successive: Ferrara, 1591; 1592, 1599; Vicenza, 1610; Parigi 1634). All'opera è preposta una dedica ad Alfonso d'Este, in cui l'autore dichiara di aver osato consacrare un 'silvestre componimento' al duca seguendo l'esempio di Virgilio, 'giudice soprano di tutte le poesie', che aveva dimostrato che 'le selve' potevano essere 'degne degli altissimi consoli di Roma'» (E. Bergonzi, Cesare Cremonini scrittore, il periodo ferrarese e i primi anni padovani, la pastorale 'Le Pompe funebri', in: "Aevum", 67 / 3m 1993, p. 581).Cesare Cremonini è stato uno dei più illustri filosofi aristotelici del suo rime. Nato a Cento, studiò a Ferrara, dove entrò a servizio dei principi d'Este e strinse amicizia con Torquato Tasso. Insegnò filosofia presso l'Università  di Ferrara dal 1573 al 1591. In quell'anno fu chiamato dal Senato veneziano a ricoprire la cattedra di filosofia dell'Università  di Padova, succedendo a Francesco Piccolomini. Qui conobbe e divenne amico di Galileo, nonostante le differenze di opinione su molte questioni. Nel 1599 fu, insieme a Galilei, Lorenzo Pignoria e Paolo Beni, uno dei membri fondatori della Accademia dei Ricovrati, cui successivamente aderirono anche Giovanni Battista Guarini e Pomponio Torelli. Cremonini fu più volte perseguito dal Tribunale dell'Inquisizione di Padova, perché accusato di credere alla mortalità  dell'anima, ne uscì sempre scagionato (cfr. H.C. Kuhn, Venetianischer Aristotelismus im Ende der Aristotelischen Welt: Aspekte der Werke und des Denkens des Cesare Cremonini, Frankfurt a.M., 1996, passim).Edit16, CNCE13724. Index Aurelienis, 146.703. L.G. Clubb, Italian Plays (1500 - 1700) in the Folger Library, Firenze, 1968, nr. 322. E. Riondato - A.

        Autograph Letter Signed

      December 8, 2006. A cordial letter from Lee responding to a letter from a reader of To Kill A Mockingbird, in fact, saying, "You must hold a record of sorts: most times having read Mockingbird to the most descendants!" Lee then informs the recipient she is "about to catch her eldest sister in age: at 95 she still practices law -- in fact, I'm going to mail this on the way to her office." Lee was a spry 80 at the time of this writing. However, the letter is written in a large, downward slanting script, which Lee explains in the final paragraph: "Forgive this scrawl -- I have macular deterroration [sic] [crossed out, replaced with "degeneration"], a ridiculous term coined by young doctors for senile blindness." Approximately 75 words, signed "Sincerely yours, Harper Lee." Folded in thirds for mailing; fine, with hand-addressed mailing envelope, which has an added handwritten label, correcting the street address. By this time the following year, Lee was no longer answering her own reader mail, following presumed further degeneration of vision and also a stroke in July 2007, and as evidenced by a long (included) autograph letter signed by Lee's sister, Alice, [to another recipient] dated in August, 2007 and addressing both Lee's physical limitations and the recipient's questions about the perceived autobiographical aspects of To Kill a Mockingbird: "My sister, Harper Lee, is a victim of macular degeneration and her severely impaired vision can not allow her to read her mail not can she reply in her own handwriting. You may tell your children that the book is fiction; that the author had no particular person in mind by whom she fashioned her characters. Explain to them that the really successful author is able to put into her characters the traits and characteristics that are so universally descriptive that they transcend time and appeal to readers through endless generations." Laid in with this second letter is a slip of paper on which is typed what amounts to a form disclaimer: "Harper Lee no longer gives autographs or signs books. She is almost blind as the result of macular degeneration which has failed to respond to any treatment. She is also suffering paralysis as the result of a stroke." A good letter by Lee, referring to her famous book, and an interesting accompanying letter and ephemeral piece documenting the decline of Lee's health over the year following her letter. No Binding.

      Eagle Street, London: The Folio Socitey, 2006. Book. Fine. Half Leather. Limited Edition. Elephant Folio - over 15 - 23" tall. A full size facsimile of the original 1755 edition. An excellent FINE set of this now out-of-print stunning facsimile. The first time these came out of the box was when we catalogued them here at Books & Ink. Due to their very fine condition, we are storing them in their box, with original packaging. They are super. The Folio Society facsimile of the first edition of Johnson's Dictionary has been printed by St. Edmundsbury Press, Bury St Edmunds on Favini toned paper and bound by Smith Settle of Otley in dappled calfskin leather with sides and edges marbled by Muir. This edition is limited to 1,000 copies of which this is copy number 716. pp. 1164, 1164. The books have been beautifully made. Included are two silk page markers per volume. The paper has a wonderfully rich creamy aged look to it. The buckram covered slipcase is sturdy, with volume dividers and a label to one side. From the FS description: 'the Folio Society facsimiles are bound by hand, using processes that closely match those used in the 18th century. The paper is a rich, creamy colour, similar to the original stock but of a slightly better quality, to prevent any deterioration of print and to avoid the torn pages suffered by several extant editions of Johnson. The exquisite hand-marbling of the book edges and boards renders each copy unique. Edge marbling was a feature of some of the finest 18th-century bindings, but the skill has now all but died out. In Johnson's day, marbling was an arcane process and its secrets closely guarded. Ann Muir, who runs a hand-marbling workshop, has created the marbling for the edges and the front and back boards... The calf leather used for the binding is treated with a process which was customary in Dr Johnson's time. The mottled finish involves hand-washing the skins repeatedly in paste, salts of tartar, glare and copperas. The skins are sourced from Graham Wright Leather, a family-run business since 1929 in Northampton - the centre of the leather trade in Johnson's time. The books are bound at the small craft bindery of Smith Settle, where Ken Smith and his team of craftsmen sew the sheets and make the cases, including creating the raised leather bands and hand-blocking the spine, cover and separate leather labels in gold.' DELIVERY: The cost of sending these within the UK MAINLAND is included in the price. An extra fee will be necessary for UK islands, including N. Ireland.

        Lexikon Garne und Zwirne: Eigenschaften und Herstellung textiler Fäden. CD-ROM CD-ROM von Anton Schenek (Autor)

      Deutscher Fachverlag, 2006. 2006. Softcover. Good. 14 x 12,2 x 1 cm. Das „Lexikon Garne und Zwirne?" füllt als Nachschlagewerk eine deutliche Lücke in der deutschsprachigen Textilliteratur. Erstmals wurde in Lexikonform alles Wissenswerte zum Thema Garne und Zwirne sowie zu den dazugehörenden Grundlagen, zu Spinnverfahren, Garnstrukturen und Eigenschaften der Garne zusammengetragen. Themenbereiche der Spinnfasergarne sind unter anderem Ring- und OE-Rotorgarne, Kompaktgarne und Vortex-Luftspinngarne, DREF- und Sirogarne. Effektgarne und elastische Fäden werden ebenso berücksichtigt wie Umwindgarne und Zwirne mit ihren Herstellungsverfahren. Technische Filamentgarne und Texturgarne sowie Teppichgarne und Nähgarne werden erläutert. "Alles Zeitlich hengt an eym Faden " lautet ein altdeutsches Sprichwort, das auf die Jahrtausende alte Bedeutung des Garns im täglichen Gebrauch des Menschen hinweist. Der überwiegende Teil textiler Flächengebilde wird aus Garnen hergestellt. Die Spinnverfahren bestimmen neben den eingesetzten Rohstoffen ganz wesentlich die Garneigenschaften und die Qualität der Endprodukte. Heute spielen neue Spinnverfahren wie das inzwischen etablierte OE-Rotorspinnen und neuerdings das Luftspinnverfahren eine wichtige Rolle. Insbesondere Filamentgarne, vor allem aus synthetischen Rohstoffen, die glatt und texturiert zunehmend im technischen Bereich und in der modischen und sportlichen Kleidung Verwendung finden, gewinnen an Marktbedeutung. In technischen Textilien, vom Airbag im Auto bis hin zum Geflecht aus Carbonfilamenten, das in Flugzeugteilen als Basis der Verbundwerkstoffe Verwendung findet, sind Spezialgarne im Einsatz. Zahlreiche Abbildungen und Tabellen sowie die Grundlagen textiler Begriffe wie Feinheitsdefinitionen und andere wichtige technische Angaben ergänzen das Werk, das sowohl für die Beschäftigten im Textilhandel und der Modebranche, in Design und Produktion, als auch für Fachleute der Textil- und Bekleidungsindustrie sowie für Hersteller im Bereich Technischer Textilien und des Textilmaschinenbaus ein willkommener Helfer im Alltag sein wird.Leserzielgruppe: Textilingenieure, Textildesigner und Studenten dieser Bereiche, Stoffhändler und Warenprüfer, Spezialinstitute für Naturfasern Das „Lexikon Garne und Zwirne?" füllt als Nachschlagewerk eine deutliche Lücke in der deutschsprachigen Textilliteratur.
