        Johnson's Dictionary [2 Volumes - Facsimile Limited Edition in Slipcase] A Dictionary of the English Language: in which the Words are Deduced from the Originals, and Illustrated in their Different Significations by Examples from the best Writers To which are prefixed, A History of the Language, and an English Grammar

      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. Large and extremely heavy - overseas delivery will be very expensive. A discount is available for collection from our shop premises - please enquire..

        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.

        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.

        LEROY GRANNIS: SURF PHOTOGRAPHY OF THE 1960S AND 1970S - DELUXE SIGNED, LIMITED COLLECTOR'S EDITION

      (GRANNIS, LEROY). Grannis, Leroy, Jim Heimann & Steve Barilotti. LEROY GRANNIS: SURF PHOTOGRAPHY OF THE 1960S AND 1970S - DELUXE SIGNED, LIMITED COLLECTOR'S EDITION. Signed and Numbered by the Photographer. Koln, GERMANY: Benedikt Taschen Verlag, 2006. First Edition 1/1000 Deluxe. Oblong Folio. Cloth in Dust Jacket, Boxed. Photography Monograph. As New/As New. 278pp, profusely illustrated in color and b&w. Text in English, German and French. Limited to one thousand copies, this signed and numbered first edition of Taschen's amazing Leroy Grannis tome is more than likely the most lavish surf photography book produced to date. "This collection, drawn from Grannis' personal archives, showcases an impressive selection of surf photographs-from the bliss of catching the perfect wave at San Onofre to dramatic wipeouts at Oahu's famed North Shore. An innovator in the field, Grannis suction-cupped a waterproof box to his board, enabling him to change film in the water and stay closer to the action than other photographers of the time. Equally notable is his work covering an emerging surf lifestyle, from surfer stomps and hordes of fans at surf contests to board-laden woody station wagons along the Pacific Coast Highway. It is in these iconic images that a sport still in its adolescence embodied the free-spirited nature of an era-a time before shortboards and celebrity endorsements, when surfing was at its bronzed best". Sold out long before publication, it lovingly reveals the kinder and gentler California surf scene of over a quarter century ago in hundreds of vintage images taken by one of the pioneers of the field. Mickey Dora, Greg Noll, Dewey Weber - they're all here! A brand new, pristine example NUMBERED AND SIGNED by Leroy Grannis still shrinkwrapped in the publisher's printed shipping carton, as issued. 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. 3-8228-5069-1 Inventory Number: 023852

        Kant-Index. - Stuttgart- Bad Cannstatt : Frommann-Holzboog [Mehrteiliges Werk]; Teil: Bd. 39 : Sect. 3, Indices zum Corpus der vorkritischen Schriften. Stellenindex und Konkordanz zur Preisschrift von 1762. 64, zu den "Negativen Größen" und zur Vorlesungsankündigung von 1765/66 /. Erstellt in Zusammenarb. mit Heinrich P. Delfosse und Michael Oberhausen; Teilbd. 2. Hauptindices und Konkordanzen zu den "Negativen Größen" und zur Vorlesungsankündigung für 1765/66

      2006.. S. 241 - 631 Gewebe. Kants Schriften der 1760er Jahre dokumentieren seine zunehmende Distanzierung von der vornehmlich durch den Wolffianismus geprägten Philosophie seiner Zeit. Gleichzeitig unternimmt Kant wichtige Schritte hin zur Entwicklung seiner eigenen, kritischen Philosophie. Die lexikalische Aufarbeitung der drei aufeinanderfolgenden Schriften, die jede für sich durch Hauptindex, Konkordanz und die üblichen Sonderindices erschlossen ist, macht diesen Prozeß für die Metaphysik und die Ethik Kants durch wortstatistische Befunde im Detail transparent. Zusammengenommen erlauben die beiden Indexbände 38 und 39 zu diesen vorkritischen Schriften gesicherte Aussagen über die Datierung umstrittener Nachlaßreflexionen und ermöglichen zudem eine genauere Bestimmung des Eigenanteils Herders in den Nachschriften, die er von Kants Vorlesungen angefertigt hat.

        Hunkering, the Last Gabberjabb Number Eight and IX/XVIths or Aleatory Annexations

      Mt. Horeb, WI: The Perishable Press. 2006. One of 108 copies on various papers (hand, mould, machine-made and even crush or mull) numbered (nine times) and signed by the author / publisher / designer / printer, Walter Hamady as well as "augmenters" eight times. Page size: 10-1/8 x 7 inches; 160pp. Bound: brown cloth over boards with rondel / cameo in dark blue in middle of binding with silhouette of Hamady within triple-ruled frame containing author's name and The Perishable Press Ltd., marbled endpapers, new. An extraordinary book, the sub-title "Aleatory Annexations" more than a clue to its nature (aleatory as pertaining to the chance writing of the surrealists) The front "blank" is a base map (different in each copy) from the U.S. Geological Survey Sheets with a poem by Ruth Evans (Hamady's grandmother) printed on the verso with blind stamp copyright notice centered at bottom of page; title (eight titles listed as follows) on p. [iv] reading "HUNKERING" in red followed by "Largely by Walter Samuel Haatoum Hamady / augmented by Henrik Drescher. Patrick Flynn. David McLimans. Peter Sis and William Stafford. The Last Gabberjabb number eight and IX/XVIths or Aleatory Annexations or Odd Bondings or Fortuitous Encounters with Incompatible Realities or Love, Anguish, Wonder: an Engagement or a Partial Timeline of Sorts or Bait and Switch or Finally, A Pedagogical Rememberance." The drawing on title page number one is a pointillist ink drawing by Peter Sis. Another title page (double page spread) featuring a print in teal blue above a figure/ground drawing printed in brown on the verso with the text printed in brown on tan paper on the recto above the other half of the image printed in teal on celadon paper, image by David McLimans. (Actually, the image is repeated on pp. x-xi in the reverse coloring juxtaposition.) The header reads, "Hunkering The Last Gabberjabb No 8 9/16 / Being the Fade-out Volume of an (Unforeseen) Series." Below a red rule at the bottom of the page is text reading, "Begun in 19-Seventy - 3 by WSHH & (TH) PRSHBLPRSS LMTD As An Expendation of Energy for the Sake of Expending (It) Copyright on 436 by PS.3558A42." There are words picked from the poem, "The Asshole & the Earthworm," in this drawing which was to illustrate the entire poem (but ran out of room) and is noted as partial homage to Charles Darwin owing "to his book concerning earthworms which, it is said, has never been superseded." P. 13 is labeled, "Things in the Front Matter of Books According to the 288" and includes, printed in 8pt. along the fore-edge, below a curved red scribed rule: "usually the reader is not shown any of the arcane/inside aspects of the bookmaker's craft for self-effacemental reasons. This is an exception to point out the subduing of fore-edge swell." There are two curved rules top and bottom of "Major Rivers of the World" center spread, as well as a red scribed line. There is a third title page in shorthand by Anna Hamady calligraphed by Linda Hancock and it faces the eight titles calli/drawn by Henrik Drescher who also did the copyright symbol printed under the shorthand. And this is only the first signature! There were numerous press-runs - at least 284 - to make this book, as well as applications of the following procedures: collage (six times), perforation, rubberstamping (18 times), drilling, notching, ticket punching, numbering (nine times), signing, grommeting, scribing (40 times), ear-tattooing, ponce-wheeling, time-clocking 12 times), dog- earing, embossing, shorthand, corner-rounding. There are elliptical trims and three stubs. There is much about seeing; Paul Valery's memorable quote, "To see is to forget the name of the thing one sees." is cited and is the title of a triple-page fold out, a panorama collage. I particularly like the "Senor Wences" fist face appearing under the text: "1964 (4) FORTY (40) YEARS 2004 / The Perishable Press Limited has / Been using Weapons of Mass/ 'construction." A 1963 (rubberstamp correction here) self- portrait in pencil of the author was scanned and printed on a recto sheet. On the verso is printed an eye from Traite d'Anatomie Humaine, and it is in register with the eye of the self-portrait. The center page double spread, consisting of an incredible number of overprints and type displays, features a double-rimmed circle with the word "proof" in the center. In the second "o" of proof is another eye. The reader / viewer will understand something new each time this book is opened. It is astonishing. There is a paragraph about text and printing and letters and space that is dazzlingly simple and simply dazzling. The last image consists of the same two three-page fold out panorama collages (6 pages total) by Hamady that appeared in JUXTAMORPHING SPACE, exhibition catalogue and bibliography. The last signature includes all the footnotes from all the previous Gabberjabbs and these footnotes are hand-set in six point - Clarendon for five of the six pages and the sixth in Sabon. Four pages were printed from Polymer plates with scale changes and the two pages in the center spread were printed directly from the hand-set type. The book is a very wonderful cap to a legendary series. Selected by the AIGA as one of the 50 best designed books of the year. See an Image.

        Pulcinella in Hades

      San Francisco:: Eastside Editions,, 2006.. Edition of 20. 16.5 x 13" closed, opens to over 8 feet; 10 pages. Vertical accordion fold with loop for hanging and removable spine. Eight feet of continuous four-color sugar lift and spit-bite aquatint etchings printed on Hahnemühle Copperplate paper. Marginalia printed letterpress from handwritten text. Includes booklet with linocut print covers, elucidating the marginalia. Art Hazelwood: "Pulcinella in Hades is a decent into Hades in the form of an eight foot tall accordion book. The borders of Pulcinella in Hades contains marginalia texts by historical authors, written in longhand by 17 contributors. The text refers to the underworld from different writings. Pulcinella from the Commedia dell'Arte is here a stand in for Orpheus or Christ in a comic harrowing of hell… "The idea of a comedy in Hades hit me when I heard an excerpt from the comic opera Orpheus in the Underworld. Why an underworld journey should be treated as a comedy can perhaps best be explained by the tremendous amount of literature to back up the view that Hell is a merry place. Comic journeys to Hell and Hades are long standing traditions. Comedy goes to Hell…. "Seventeen people were asked to write in their own hand the literary marginalia selected to accompany the text. Many complained that their handwriting is terrible. Many were correct. " Art Hazelwood, Marginal Note on Marginalia: "In the Middle Ages written texts came in the form of manuscripts, and marginalia were an important component of the process of textual transmission. It was accepted that readers would add comments, notes and even drawings to illustrate and comment on what they were reading. In some cases, the marginalia in medieval manuscripts overwhelm the main text….Perhaps the greatest instance of marginalia gone mad is the Renaissance French philosopher Michel de Montaigne, who published an edition of his famous Essays in 1580, then went back and added comments and reflections, which he integrated into the main body of his text when he republished the book in 1588. A later edition repeated the same process. So, for Montaigne we can say that his book was literally made up out of its own marginalia.… In most early printed books there were few indexes, so marginal notes were often printed right in the text which alluded to certain sources or outlined in abbreviated form what the main text was saying. Indeed, no reader of early books can fail to be struck by the delightful marginal ciphers, comments, and drawn hands with pointing fingers used to call attention to certain important passages. Through the study of marginalia we can draw closest to the thoughts of readers from earlier ages ?- perhaps even more than through the study of the books themselves.… The margins are the place where the reader speaks back to the text, where alternative ways of thinking spring up around the language of 'official' knowledge.

        Geschichte Des Zweiten Vatikanischen Konzils (1959-1965), Band IV: Die Kirche als Gemeinschaft: September 1964-September 1965 [Gebundene Ausgabe] von Giuseppe Alberigo (Herausgeber), Gunther Wassilowsky (Herausgeber)

      Peeters Pub, 2006. 2006. Hardcover. Good. 21 x 13,8 x 1,8 cm. Die Kirche als GemeinschaftSeptember 1964-September 1965 Der vierte und vorletzte Band der großen Konzilsgeschichte, die unter der Leitung des Nestors der historischen Vatikanumsforschung, des Bologneser Kirchenhistorikers Giuseppe Alberigo, von einem international zusammengesetzten Expertenteam geschrieben wird, behandelt die wohl dramatischste Sitzungsperiode des ganzen II. Vatikanums. Drei zentrale Konzilstexte schienen verabschiedungsreifKirche, ?-kumenismus und Religionsfreiheit. Doch die "schwarzen Woche" (settimana nera) im November 1964 brachte massive Rücksichtnahmen auf die Konzilsminorität, z.B. in der Frage der Kollegialität der Bischöfe. Ein erster Raureif legte sich während dieser "Novemberkrise" auf den Konziliaren Frühling. Die Vorgänge werden detailliert und spannend rekonstruiert von J.A. Komonchak, G. Miccoli, H. Sauer, N. Tanner, L.A. Tagle, R. Burigana, G. Turbanti und G. Alberigo. The fourth and second to last volume of the extensive history of the second Vatican Council, written by an international team of specialists under the guidance of Giuseppe Albergio, church historian from Bologna, deals with its arguably most dramatic period. Three vital council texts seemed to be ready for adoptionchurch, ecumenicalism and freedom of religion. But the 'black week' (settimananera) of November 1964 brought about massive curtailments for the benefit of council minorities, such as in the question of the bishops' collegiality. A first frost chilled the conciliar spring during the' November crisis'. The events are reconstructed in a detailed and enthralling manner by J A Komonchak, G Miccoli, H Saucer, N Tanner, L A Tagle, R burigana, G Turbanti and G Alberigo.
