        Life, Life, Eternal Life: Uncle Wiggily Meets the Pilgrim's Progress

      Bologna, Italy:: Angela Lorenz,, 2006.. Edition of 17. 15.5"x 13 x 3.75" closed, 9.9 x 10.5 x 2" fully extended. Accordion fold cloth book. Recycled materials. Housed in "pillow case. Connecticut College, Newsletter: "Angela Lorenz is a gifted American book artist who has lived and worked in Bologna since 1989. Life, Life, Eternal Life: Uncle Wiggily Meets the Pilgrim?'s Progress, created in an edition of 17 copies in 2006, is an elaborate ?'board game?' based on her interpretation of the famous Christian allegory Pilgrim?'s Progress , first published in 1678 by John Bunyan. Although rarely read today, Pilgrim?'s Progress is considered to be one of the most significant works of English literature and it has never been out of print. It was enormously popular and influential for many generations. "Using modern and antique fabrics, buttons, pen nibs, book pages, Velcro, gum wrappers, safety pins and other recycled objects and materials, Lorenz has painstakingly fashioned a visual and allegorical representation of Bunyan?'s book in which every detail is significant. The book/game comes in its own linen pillowcase because the story unfolds in a dream. The strap inside converts the pillowcase into a pilgrim?'s bag that may be worn by the players. A golden crown holds the unopened accordion fold cloth book in place. Once the book is opened, the crown is worn by each player in turn and, at the end, is placed just beyond the gates of the Celestial City. It took Ms. Lorenz two years to research, design and create this book.?" Dartmouth College, Rauner Library blog: ?"As the title suggests, this board game is a meeting of the classic 334 year old Christian Parable, The Pilgrim's Progress, by John Bunyan and the board game Uncle Wiggily. In this game, players take turns drawing cards and moving their pieces along the board following Christian's journey from the City of Destruction, Bunyan's earth, to the Celestial City, Bunyan's heaven. Similar to Uncle Wiggily, players receive help or hindrance from characters in Bunyan?'s story ?- from Faithful, Christian's companion and friend, to Beelzebub, a devil who guards the road to heaven and shoots arrows at anyone who tries to pass. Players must also compete in a number of tasks ?- from a game of musical chairs, or ?'Going to Jerusalem,?' to a game of croquet, where players must hit their playing pieces through the Wicket Gate to begin their journey, to target practice using a handmade catapult, to spinning a teetorum, a sort of Christian dreidel, to cross over the River of Death." Angela Lorenz: "This artist?'s book in seventeen copies presents itself as a cloth accordion-fold book with a cloth case that resembles a pillow. After untying the cloth bows of the case, it becomes apparent that the pillowcase transforms into a humble shoulder bag with a buckle and frayed strap terminating in an enormous metal tagged lace. Unbuckling the strap allows the viewer to put the pack on his or her back with the strap wrapped around the torso. Thus begins an artist?'s foray into the world of the itinerant tinker, preacher, and writer John Bunyan, and a visual and allegorical representation of his most famous book The Pilgrim?'s Progress(1678). "Many of the materials used to make this book are old, from antique pen nibs to 19th-century textiles from my family. I even incorporated linen sheets given at the time of my wedding, and my own wedding dress and scarf. ... Accordingly, I chose to use as many recycled materials as possible. As a prisoner [Bunyan] earned money for his family by putting metal tips on laces. This explains the over-sized metal tip on the pilgrim?'s purse strap, recycled from an aluminum pie tin. Bunyan was trying to create a novel, amusing version of the Bible that would appeal to the barely literate. So I avoided using text on the game board, and tried to relay his narrative with the same kinds of allegorical methods and symbols he used. There is even a piece of ink-jet printed potato starch with the recipe for Mr. Skill's Pills, conceptual food Bunyan invented which is based on the Eucharist. "Playing the game: This work presents itself as a pillowcase, because the novel unfolds in a dream, and also because the Bible dream sequence of Jacob, who lays his head on a stone for a pillow and dreams, is used by Bunyan in his novel. Untie the pillowcase and you may extract the book. You may also take out the strap inside to view the case in its pilgrim?'s bag format. In order to open the book you must remove the crown wrapped around it. You may undo the safety pin to make this easier. When the book is totally unfolded, the crown may be placed at the end, just beyond the golden gates of the celestial city, resting on a carded wool cloud. The safety pin also makes the crown adjustable, as each player that finishes the pilgrimage from the City of Destruction to the Celestial City is entitled to wear the crown in turn. The title on the front cover is a pocket ?- inside is a "cheat sheet" that will help you play the game without reading the three pamphlets (City of Destruction Instructions, House Beautiful, and Vanity Fair) included on the game board. It tells you what to do when you land on any of the numbered spaces, or spaces where your felted ball can?'t stick to the Velcro path because something is attached there. Open the accordion-fold book and take yellow and red cards out of the 18th-century woman?'s 'pocket.' Carefully remove wicket gate, slotted in on the second page above the Velcro path, unroll it, and set it up so that the words read 'wicket-gate,' with Pope and Pagan?'s cave in view. Later, you will flip it forward to turn it into the Vanity Fair stockade. ... "The yellow and red cards, based on Uncle Wiggily, allow the players to move without throwing dice, once considered sinful due to associations with gambling. Sometimes games included an alternative to dice called a teetotum, similar to a dreidel or top. Accordingly, players must spin the teetotum when they reach the Black River of Death, representing the Jordan, to reach the gates of the Celestial City. Bunyan peppers his narrative with amusing, somewhat childish, rhyming verse throughout the novel. The language is not that dissimilar to the rhyming yellow Uncle Wiggily cards, nor are common themes of helping others along, giving them treats to eat, singing, and doing good deeds in general. Thus, the Uncle Wiggily text often remains unaltered with Bunyan?'s characters inserted. When the yellow cards instruct the player to take a red card, it will be helpful to use the recycled optical device, or ink-bottle loupe, representing Clear Hill, to read the tiny text. In the book, the shepherds let Christian use a scientific novelty, a 'perspective-glass,' to view the Celestial City from atop Clear Hill in the Delectable Mountains …

        Constitucion del Estado de Antioquia sancionada por los representantes de toda la provincia. Y aceptada por el pueblo el tres de Mayo del año de 1812.Santafé de Bogotá (Colombia), Nicomedes Lora, printed by Bruno Espinosa de los Monteros, 1812. 4to. Side-stitched; untrimmed. In a modern box.

      Garnica, La agenda liberal temprana en la Nueva Granada (2006), p. 46, note 18 (Biblioteca Nacional de Columbia copy); Marquardt, Constitutional documents of Columbia and Panama 1793-1853 (2010), p. 367, note 1 (same copy). Exceptional copy of an extremely rare book containing the text of the first constitution of the Colombian province of Antioquia, with its capital at Medellin. This constitution (3 May 1812) precedes that of Cartagena de Indias, which was the first city to declare independence from Spain (14 June 1812). Colombia as a whole did not declare its independence until 1819. The book was printed in Bogotá, Colombia in 1812. The only other copy we have located is in the National Library of Columbia.The integral blank of the present copy (serving as front wrapper) has the owner's signature of Juan Nepomuceno Azuero (1780-1857), Colombian patriot and revolutionary, brother of the famous publicist and politician Vicente Azuero. Azuero, Santander, Francisco Soto, Luis Vargas Tejada and Florention Gonzalez are all linked to the early beginnings of the insurrection and the founding of the Colombian Republic. They used to meet in the home of Vicente Azuero and Indalecia Ricaurte. Lower right corner of front wrapper torn off. A remarkable copy of the first edition of the constitution of the first Colombian province to declare independence from Spain.

        Rats Alley: Trench Names of the Western Front, 1914 - 1918 ( WWI / World War I / One )( Rats' / Rat's )

      Brimscombe Port, Stroud, Gloucestershire, England: Spellmount Limited, 2006, 1st Edition, 1st Printings, 2006, Hard Cover, Book Condition: Fine, Dust Jacket Condition: Fine, First Edition, Illustrated By: Photo Cover-----------hardcover, a lovely Near Fine/Fine copy in a Near Fine/Fine dustjacket, most copies went to libraries, this is the 1st copy that I have seen that is NOT exlibrary (and I've only had 3 copies and seen one other exlibrary for sale), 416 pages, b&w photos and maps, ---"The naming of the trenches became general practice during the winter of 1914-15 and these names soon appeared on the embryonic trench maps which were produced in ever growing numbers during the later stages of the war-the British producing some 20 million large-scale maps in all. This fascinating book lists each trench name-and the names of any places, camps, localities, and installations associated with them, their significance, and how to find them with the relevant Map References."---from the front flap: "---the first ever study of trench names of the Western Front and also provides a gazeteer of over 10,000 trench names, complete with map references. Looked at from the point of view of contemporary military givers and users of the names, and from a modern cultural studies angle, the names reveal the full horror of trench warfare as well as throwing an extraordinary sidelight on the cultural life of the period and the landscape and battles of the Western Front. This book now makes it possible via trench naming, the daily life in the trenches, the vast range of weaponry and the lethal nature of the titanic battles. Names such as Lovers Lane, Lavender Walk, Idiots Corner, International Trench, Nonsense Trench, Chaos Trench, Cyanide Trench, Crazy Redoubt, Howl Trench, Unbearable Trench, Doleful Post, Furies Trench, Peril Avenue, Hazard Trench, Lunatic Sap and Gangrene Alley can be placed in context, as can the reason the French called German Trenches Tranchee des Homosexuels, Boyau du Harem and Boyau des Eunuques. Starting with a brief examination of the philosophy of naming, the book looks at the Historical and cultural background of warfare ---. ---how and why trench names were first introduced ---how they developed ---British trench naming, it also includes a comparative element by looking at French and German practice. The gazetteer of 10,000 trench names is displayed, with columns for name, map-sheet and grid references on the British 1914-18 syste, thus enabling readers to identify precise locations on copies of trench maps which are now easily available.

        Friedrichstein. Das Schloß der Grafen von Dönhoff in Ostpreußen [Gebundene Ausgabe] Kilian Heck (Herausgeber), Christian Thielemann (Herausgeber)

      Deutscher Kunstverlag, 2006. 2006. Hardcover. Good. 27,6 x 22,8 x 3,2 cm. Der Dirigent Christian Thielemann und der Kunsthistoriker Kilian Heck schildern gemeinsam mit namhaften Historikern und Kunsthistorikern die Geschichte von Schloss Friedrichstein, dem 1945 untergegangenen Stammsitz der Grafen von Dönhoff.Schloss Friedrichstein, der Familiensitz der Grafen von Dönhoff, war das prächtigste unter den Schlössern Ostpreußens. Erbaut im frühen 18. Jahrhundert ist es heute vor allem bekannt als Heimatort von Marion Gräfin von Dönhoff, die im Januar 1945 aus Ostpreußen fliehen musste. Nach dem Krieg wurde das Schloss von den Sowjets dem Erdboden gleichgemacht. Der Kunsthistoriker Kilian Heck und der Dirigent Christian Thielemann erforschen seit Jahren mit Leidenschaft und Akribie die wechselhafte Geschichte des Barockschlosses. Dabei haben sie Erstaunliches ans Licht gebracht: Entgegen der bisherigen Annahme sind bedeutende Teile der Ausstattung wie prachtvolle Wandteppiche und kostbare Gemälde keineswegs verloren, sondern bis heute gut erhalten. Ihre begeisternden Funde präsentiert der prachtvoll ausgestattete Band hier erstmals der ?-ffentlichkeit. Darüber hinaus wird von ausgewiesenen Fachleuten die Geschichte dieses trotz seiner immensen Bedeutung nie gründlich erforschten Schlosses von den Anfängen bis in die Gegenwart erzählt. Autor: Kilian Heck ist promovierter Kunsthistoriker. Seit 2005 schreibt er an seiner Habilitation zum Werk des Malers Carl Blechen. Christian Thielemann ist Dirigent.

        TIME - Rare Signed Copy of The First Hardcover Edition/First Printing - ONLY SIGNED COPY ONLINE

      Ostfildern-ruit, Germany: Hatje Cantz Publishers, 2006 - 1st Printing. Signed. 160 pages. Published in 2006. Exhibition monograph presented as an Artist Book. One of the most beautiful books on the art of Christian Boltanski. The title comes from his site-specific installation, "Zeit", which serves as the exhibition's starting point. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. The First Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Christian Boltanski: Oversize-volume format. Blue hard boards with titles embossed on cover and spine, as issued. Art by Christian Boltanski. Essays by Aleida Assmann and Ralf Beil. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Germany to the very highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name held at the Institut Mathildenhohe Darmstadt from November 12, 2006 through February 11, 2007. Presents new work as well as previous work in a new light. The emphasis Boltanski places on the most fragile objects, particularly photographs, to evoke our "struggle against death" (his phrase) is the central idea behind his sublime art. As such, Boltanski's work is not "about" death but "against" it, through art rather than polemics. His obsession with death is often mistakenly seen as acceptance or even embrace of it when as Boltanski himself repeatedly says, the role of memory is to insist on the sanctity of human life, that whenever we remember those who have died, we remember their lives, not their death, and that memorial, archive, and elegy, which all pause Time, ultimately affirm Life. At the same time, Boltanski acknowledges, more than any other living artist, that death is a fact of life, and that even as we struggle against it, we intuitively realize from a series of "death experiences" throughout our lives (the end of childhood, which Boltanski regards as the first death we experience in life; the loss, not necessarily the actual death, of a loved one, which is why we call it "the end" of a romance, relationship or marriage; a life-threatening illness; severe physical or psychological violence inflicted upon us) that denying the reality of death is more dangerous than our fear of it. "I am for an art that is sentimental. I want to make people cry. Art should create emotions. The task is to create a formal work that is, at the same time, recognized by the spectator as a sentimentally charged object. Everyone will recognize their own history, their own world, which is more felt than perceived. The artist is someone who holds a mirror and those who look in the mirror recognize themselves but each one sees a different image" (Christian Boltanski). An absolute "must-have" title for Christian Boltanski collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Christian Boltanski. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is now highly collectible. As far as we know, this is the only signed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. One of the greatest living artists. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER CHRISTIAN BOLTANSKI TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 3775718257.

        BULLETIN MENSUEL DE DOCUMENTATION - 26 JUILLET 2006-4 JANVIER 2007

      Secrétariat Privé de Norodom Sihanouk du Cambodge août 2006-janvier 2007, (Phnom Penh puis Beijing) - Douze numéros agrafés, 29,5cm x 21cm, 259pp + 223pp + 195pp + 173pp + 235pp + 182pp + 236pp + 224pp + 243pp + 198pp + 224pp + 209pp, nombreuses photos n/bl, photos en couleurs, 6,2kg. "Une page blanche au n° des 25-29 août, manque à un feuillet du n° du 29 octobre au 10 novembre et à un feuillet du n° des 11-23 novembre, sinon excellent état à comme neuf. Le Bulletin Mensuel de Documentation est confectionné par le Secrétariat Privé du Roi sous le contrôle méticuleux de ce dernier et ce, depuis début 1970 (sa parution ayant néanmoins été interdite lorsque les Khmers Rouges étaient au pouvoir), le Souverain décidant lui-même de ce qui est publié, rédigeant et écrivant parfois à la main mises au point, commentaires et réflexions, notamment en marge des articles de presse qu'il reprend, et apposant son paraphe au bas de certaines pages. Bien que s'en défendant, parfois avec humour, il rédige régulièrement des lettres censées lui avoir été envoyées des Pyrénées par un certain Ruom Ritt, dont il a créé le personnage, et qui s'exprime sur des sujets d'actualité avec la liberté de ton que le Souverain ne peut endosser étant donné son statut constitutionnel, ce qui lui permet de ne pas renoncer à sa liberté de parole; ces prétendues lettres sont un témoignage particulièrement original de son génie de la communication. Expédié à quelques centaines d'exemplaires (le n° du 20-28 juin 2003 indique que ce nombre n'a cessé de croître pour atteindre alors près de 400 exemplaires, mais qu'il sera réduit dorénavant à 250 exemplaires maximum) à des destinataires cambodgiens et étrangers soigneusement sélectionnés par le Roi, et comprenant notamment de nombreux membres de la famille Royale, le Bulletin - qui n'est pas strictement mensuel malgré sa dénomination, mais paraît toutes les une à quatre semaines - reflète à la fois avec précision et une grande subtilité le point de vue du Souverain face aux menées d'une classe politique dont il désapprouve souvent les choix et les mœurs, tout en laissant parfois percer sa sympathie pour certains responsables qui ont le courage de se démarquer des prises de position du pouvoir en place. Cette publication, émanant d'un Chef d'Etat qui a traversé les épreuves les plus tragiques depuis qu'il a accédé au trône en 1941, est sans équivalent dans l'histoire et dans le monde; elle constitue une source de documentation absolument unique et ses exemplaires sont rarissimes. A noter que Norodom Sihanouk continue de l'éditer depuis qu'il a abdiqué. L'essentiel des textes est en français, mais de nombreux documents, articles et lettres sont en cambodgien ou, plus rarement, en anglais. Sommaire du n° du 26 juillet au 5 août: (Le sommaire des douze numéros peut être adressé sur demande) Activités du Roi-Père (ARP) (7pp); Textes divers (TD) (Communiqués du Roi-Père, correspondance, etc ) (5 + 18 + 2pp); Photos des activités (PA) du Roi-Père (153pp); Action aux plans social et humanitaire (APSH) (1 + 14pp); Texte titré "L'Indépendance totale du Cambodge n'est pas due à la Conférence Internationale de Genève (en 1954)" (11pp); Commentaires divers manuscrits (CD) (dont un texte titré "Les Droits de la Femme Khmère et moi") (26pp); Dépêches d'agence de presse sur les derniers jours de la République khmère (DJRK) (8pp); Cinématographie du Roi-Père (CI) (10pp); Photos en couleurs de réalisations de Norodom Sihanouk en faveur du peuple cambodgien en 2006 (PC) (4pp).

        Building the Times by Annie Leibovitz (Limited Ed.: this is 1 large image from the large size photo/poster)

      New York Times 2005 2006 - This is one original image from the large size b&w photographic/posters by Annie Leibovitz; photographs were taken between July 2005 and July 2006, and were displayed outside The New York Times Building construction site in Dec. 2005, titled: "Building the Times"; it is not signed; image size: 46"wide x 30"long, limited to 9 or 10 images each that where printed from the total of 83 b&w images that were displayed of various sizes; printed by offset on a thick paper-cloth (washable). Annie Leibovitz started documenting (around Dec.2005) the construction of the 52-story, Renzo Piano-designed steel and glass tower with hundreds of arresting images, 83 of which were displayed on the wooden walls constructed around the site on 8th Ave. between 40th & 41st St. on the pedestrian street-level. These walls were covered with 802 b&w photos of varying sizes (the original 83 images where duplicated around the wall), and arranged in a series of posters that stretch 164 ft across the entire block on the east side of 8th Ave. between W. 40th & 41st St, over 300 ft. down W.40th St. and nearly 450 ft. down 41st St. As the building was being completed in 2007 they were removed and today are in varying condition being exposed for 2 years to the outdoor elements.CONDITIONS: right margin trimmed; with dried glue marks on back; also tiny faint invisible dents from the back side's dried glue showing thru out the front image and some of them have turned a little rusty brown but not distracting from it, otherwise in GOOD COND.

        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 hoards 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 pristine copy NUMBERED AND SIGNED by Leroy Grannis still shrinkwrapped in the publisher's printed shipping carton, as issued.

      Brimscombe Port, Stroud, Gloucestershire, England: Spellmount Limited, 2006, 1st Edition, 1st Printings, 2006. -----------hardcover, a lovely Near Fine/Fine copy in a Near Fine/Fine dustjacket, most copies went to libraries, this is the 1st copy that I have seen that is NOT exlibrary (and I've only had 3 copies and seen one other exlibrary for sale), 416 pages, b&w photos and maps, ---"The naming of the trenches became general practice during the winter of 1914-15 and these names soon appeared on the embryonic trench maps which were produced in ever growing numbers during the later stages of the war-the British producing some 20 million large-scale maps in all. This fascinating book lists each trench name-and the names of any places, camps, localities, and installations associated with them, their significance, and how to find them with the relevant Map References."---from the front flap: "---the first ever study of trench names of the Western Front and also provides a gazeteer of over 10,000 trench names, complete with map references. Looked at from the point of view of contemporary military givers and users of the names, and from a modern cultural studies angle, the names reveal the full horror of trench warfare as well as throwing an extraordinary sidelight on the cultural life of the period and the landscape and battles of the Western Front. This book now makes it possible via trench naming, the daily life in the trenches, the vast range of weaponry and the lethal nature of the titanic battles. Names such as Lovers Lane, Lavender Walk, Idiots Corner, International Trench, Nonsense Trench, Chaos Trench, Cyanide Trench, Crazy Redoubt, Howl Trench, Unbearable Trench, Doleful Post, Furies Trench, Peril Avenue, Hazard Trench, Lunatic Sap and Gangrene Alley can be placed in context, as can the reason the French called German Trenches Tranchee des Homosexuels, Boyau du Harem and Boyau des Eunuques. Starting with a brief examination of the philosophy of naming, the book looks at the Historical and cultural background of warfare ---. ---how and why trench names were first introduced ---how they developed ---British trench naming, it also includes a comparative element by looking at French and German practice. The gazetteer of 10,000 trench names is displayed, with columns for name, map-sheet and grid references on the British 1914-18 syste, thus enabling readers to identify precise locations on copies of trench maps which are now easily available. The book includes useful information on where original trench maps are held, and how to obtain copies."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo.
