        The Meaning of Night : A Confession **LIMITED LEATHERBOUND EDITION, 5/25, SIGNED**

      John Murray, 2006. 1st. Hardcover. Fine/n/a. Signed by Author. Hardback, first edition, first print. Beautiful leatherbound limited edition in Mint Unread condition. This is Number 10 of a Limited Edition of only 25 issued copies. SIGNED and numbered by the author. Synopsis: The Meaning of Night is an enthralling novel that will captivate readers right up to its final thrilling revelation. The atmosphere of Bleak House, the sensuous thrill of Perfume, and the mystery of Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell all combine in a story of murder, deceit, love, and revenge in Victorian England. "After killing the red-haired man, I took myself off to Quinn's for an oyster supper." So begins the extraordinary story of Edward Glyver booklover, scholar, and murderer. As a young boy, Glyver always believed he was destined for greatness. A chance discovery convinces him that he was right: greatness does await him, along with immense wealth and influence. Overwhelmed by his discovery, he will stop at nothing to win back a prize that he knows is rightfully his. "Michael Cox's 'The Meaning of Night' is the most recent example of what one might dub 'Victorian noir.' As in a 19th-century sensation novel think of Wilkie Collins' 'The Woman in White,' John Meade Falkner's 'The Nebuly Coat' or even Charles Dickens' 'Bleak House' its intricate plot turns on the question of who should rightfully inherit a great estate and a sizable fortune. Oaths of secrecy, "Washington Post Book Review"

        A Bibliography of the Writings of Sir Winston Churchill, complete three-volume set in original publisher's shrink wrap and shipping box

      London & New York: Thoemmes Continuum, an imprint of The Continuum International Publishing Group, 2006. 1st Edition. Hardcover. New. This is an as-new set of the definitive bibliography of Sir Winston Churchill's writing, still in the original publisher's shrink wrap and shipping box. Ronald Cohen's mammoth bibliographic effort reflects decades of work and Mr. Cohen's singular experience as both a collector and bibliographer of Churchill's work. The result is a most welcome replacement for Fredrick Woods' worthy, but limited and now quite dated bibliographic work on Churchill. Comprising three volumes, Cohen's Bibliography provides extensive detail and background on publications by Churchill, his contributions to the published work of others, articles by Churchill in serial publications, reports of speeches by Churchill on other published works, and several other categories of published Churchill contributions and communications. The books are attractively bound in blue buckram with gilt stamping and red spine title boxes. The contents are printed on acid-free paper and each volume bears a red satin ribbon marker. This work is indispensible to any serious Churchill collector. That said, availability is limited, as publication was limited to 400 copies. This pristine set will come to you exactly as it shipped from the publisher. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A762

        Full Circle

      Berkeley: Flying Fish Press, 2006. Hard Cover. Fine. Hard Cover. Number 60 of 100 copies. "Full Circle is a powerful exploration into the cycles of faith and belief from the first moments of obsession through the experience of deepest doubts, and ultimately passing through the place of peace where the mind and heart are (re)united before the endless cycle starts again ... One of Chen';s most advanced book structures to date, the ingenious wheel is not only a marvel of book craft but also an opportunity for a level of self-exploration leading the reader toward the realization that meaning may be encountered within the process of seeking" (Julie Chen). This elaborate book construction includes a large wheel which rotates beneath a platform of small windows which reveal images of the human body, text, and small objects. Three drawers can be pulled from the box as the wheel rotates and each reveals a small pop-up with printed text. A beautifully constructed and engrossing structure with poignant text about beliefs, infatuation, passion, and loss. Letterpress printed on a variety of papers with photopolymer plates. Box size: 15.5 inches by 15.5 inches by 3 inches.

        juliet weiblicher akt mit regenschirm collage mit fotografie, öl und zeichnung, rückseitig handsigniert

      2006 - bezeichnet julet weiblicher akt mit regenschirm collage mit fotografie, öl und zeichnung, unikat, rückseitig handsigniert, datiert 2006 new york/ berlin größe der arbeit 21,5 x 24 cmart kunst juliet nude erotik sex art kunst juliet nude erotik sex David hochbaum arbeitet in New Yorks East Village David und kreiert sein "photo constructions" seit mehr als 15 jahren. David Hochbaum (born 1972) left his New York home in 1990 for Boston 's School of the Museum of Fine Arts where he studied photography, painting and sculpture. In 1995, he returned to New York and began showing locally almost immediately. In the following decade, Hochbaum's work has been seen in Germany , Sweden , Switzerland , Chile and in venues across the United States . Dedicated to the idea of community, Hochbaum strives to work collectively with artists from all genres and backgrounds. As a solo artist, Hochbaum's output is centered around the power of myth. But to understand his work, one must understand that the myths he explores have little to do with the gods and monsters of antiquity. Hochbaum incorporates the ideas, ideologies and iconography of his vivid dreams with the lives seen everyday on the streets of his native New York to create a new mythology. These visceral stories attempt to explain visually the unknown elements and intricacies of modern life. It is the desire to communicate the lessons of this mythos with all of humanity in a common, unmistakable tongue which drives Hochbaum's efforts, but it is the exposure of his inner demons and personal struggles that transform paint, photography and sculpture into catalysts for change and understanding.

        Saint-Martial de Limoges : Ambition politique et production culturelle ( Xe-XIIIe siècles )

      Presses Universitaires de Limoges et du Limousin - Paris 2006. 1 Volume/1. -- Comme Neuf &#150; Broché cousu. Format in-8° ( 24 x 16 cm )( 930 gr ). ------- 545 pages. **************** "" Depuis la publication remarquée de deux catalogues, les enquêtes sur Saint-Martial de Limoges se sont multipliées, sans être toujours connues. En effet, en raison du nombre et de la qualité des manuscrits conservés, des médiévistes renommés de tous pays considèrent l'abbaye comme un lieu-clé. Dans le domaine monumental, les vestiges in situ ne semblaient pas à la hauteur de cet atout ; pourtant, les sanctuaires latéraux, les dix-huit chapiteaux récemment découverts, l'état des recherches en matière d'art roman ou gothique nécessitaient une nouvelle mise en lumière. S'il reste bien des investigations à mener, souvent suggérées ici, et si ce recueil ne prétend pas à un diagnostic définitif sur le rayonnement du monastère urbain, au moins la perspective interdisciplinaire a-t-elle constitué un outil nouveau et efficace d'exploration de l'histoire. Grâce à cette dynamique, le lecteur dispose d'un tableau brossé à petites touches montrant qu'on ne peut pas séparer les événement, leurs récits soigneusement élaborés, les stratégies politiques à échelle locale ou plus large, le culte des reliques, les processus d'éducation et de transmission, la construction en pierre, la production artistique, musicale ou littéraire.

A partir d'archives loquaces et parfois indiscrètes, ce livre invite le lecteur à déambuler dans les rues du vieux Paris, le regard levé sur les façades. Franchissant la porte des maisons, on découvre le monde affairé des boutiques ou, au-delà d'un obscur corridor, une cour discrète entourée d'édifices à colombages. Un escalier escarpé y incite à déambuler jusque dans les étages, à la découverte de pièces exiguës, souvent enfumées, parfois décorées avec un raffinement inattendu, ou à se courber pour descendre dans des caves profondes et voûtées. Au fil des pages se révèle ainsi l'univers quotidien des Parisiens, loin des hôtels particuliers qui s'épanouissent alors dans le faubourg Saint-Honoré et la Chaussée d'Antin. C'est ce décor pittoresque mais oublié, en grande partie balayé par les travaux d'Haussmann, que cet ouvrage tente de faire revivre. "" **************** [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
