      New York: Printed Matter, Inc (2006) - First Edition. Octavos. An edition of 200 copies, SIGNED by Terence Koh on the laid-in colophon card. Set of four booklets, housed in a black box and resting on a bed of black jellybeans, with an original black plaster sculpture coated with black glitter and a loose colophon card laid into the box. The card features a unique charred "drawing" by Koh along the top edge. An meditation on the intersection between death, destruction, and desire in three parts, the set evinces Koh's innovation as a maker of artists' books. The first booklet comprises a series of small rectangular black-and-white photographs culled from internet resources; the second consists of a sequence of burned pages, each marred by the same circular cigarette burn; the third contains a single small tipped-in image of a suicide victim's hand. This set includes a duplicate copy of the first booklet; Koh's early publications feature minor inconsistencies within editions. Fine in staple-bound wrappers, housed in a fine blind-stamped black box; black colophon sheet as a chunk missing from the top (likely intentional); all other contents in fine condition.

Begun in 1975 & continuing, the Plays now number ninety-three. My intention has always been to make one hundred. Landscape is the vocabulary of the Plays, as landscape can be a living source of power.

The format is unchanging, each little square within the whole serves as a discovery of sensibilities near, far, old, new.The Plays were stimulated by Ezra Pounds Cantos, spirit plays of Japans Noh theatre & W. B. Yeats, music. Their character derives from sojourns in the Midwest, West, & Japan, & journeys between. Love, longing, mysteries predominate the many themes contained with nature in the series.

        Entrance to the Greenhouse. Poem by Joan Finnigan

      Moscow , Russia. 2006. Artist&#39;s book, one of a series of five all on Indian flowered paper, 2 of which are for sale, this copy with the last two pages of window-sill gardens highlighted with colored pencils by the artist, signed and dated by her on the colophon. Page size: 6-3/4 x 7-1/2 inches; 38pp; 4 of which are double-page fold-outs (including Colophon) and one of which is a double-page pop-up. Bound: by the artist: hand-sewn with exposed spine and tape, beige linen over boards, front panel with inlaid linen fabric, Indian flower paper overlay, housed in custom-made tan cloth clamshell box with label printed on paper on spine, fine. & In the colophon the artist states that while living in Moscow in 2004, she found herself missing her Maryland garden - and this book was the result. The artist lettered the text of her friend, Canadian poet Joan Finnigan, on Arches Text Wove with Pelikan 4001 ink and a #4 Rexel nib and a Heintze & Blanckertz fold pen with walnut ink. She then scanned the lettering and a few simple drawings and laid the pages out in Photoshop and printed them on an Epson Stylus Photo2100 printer. She then returned to the pages with colored pencils and paint - dreaming of summer gardens while surrounded by the Russian winter. Joan Finnigan (1925-2007), a Canadian writer and poet, was educated at Lisgar Collegiate, Carleton University and Queen&#39;s University. She was awarded a Genie for Best Screenplay in 1969 for the film "The Best Damn Fiddler from Calabogie to Kaladar." She wrote over thirty books, many of them oral histories of her native Ottawa Valley which won several prestigious regional awards. Her poetry collection, "The Watershed Collection" was shortlisted for the Lowther award; "Wintering Over" (another poetry collection) was shortlisted for the Trillium Award. Her final oral history "Life along the Opeongo Line" was published in 2004. April 16, 2005 was declared "Joan Finnigan Day in Ottawa by the then Mayor. Her final volume of poetry, "Looking for a Turnout," was published in 2007.& Artist and calligrapher, Elizabeth McKee, lives and works in Maryland, but has traveled and lived around the world after growing up in New Guinea, Iowa and Australia. Married to a Canadian, Neill McKee, she has a son and daughter. She has studied occidental calligraphy since 1981, helping found the Calligraphy Society of Ottawa she is now an honorary member. She has lived and worked in Japan, Bangladesh, Kenya, Uganda as well as Moscow and Maryland. She has participated in many group exhibitions as well as solo exhibitions. Her work is included in the collections of the late Queen Mother, the City of Ottawa, the National Museum of Women in the Arts, as well as private collections around the world. Her visual interpretation of her friend&#39;s verse is not only homage to the natural world; it is affirmation of life and the joy of that experience. Using at least five different lettering forms, Ms. McKee has created pages of deceptive simplicity - grouping words in one style over those in another - layer upon layer as a garden grows. She has done her friend proud. <br>See an <A HREF= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/10736.jpg >Image.</A><br>

        The Luttrell Psalter. A Facsimile. Commentary by Michelle P. Brown

      The Folio Society. 2006. 2 Vols., 4to, a complete 624 coloured page facsimile edition of the Luttrell Psalter (British Library Additional MS 42130), limited and numbered edition, printed on Swiss-made Furioso paper, bound in blue Nigerian goatskin, spine with label and raised bands, with a design by David Eccles using motifs from the Psalter blocked onto the cover using gold, silver and coloured foils, with the Luttrell coat-of-arms of six martlets argent, covers with bevelled edges, presented together with the commentary volume by Professor Michelle P. Brown in a buckram-bound solander box with a leather title label. The Luttrell Psalter is one of the British Library&apos;s supreme treasures. It has more than 600 pages and the delicate task of recreating this masterpiece of English medieval art so accurately into a complete full size facsimile edition has taken well over a year to achieve. Every stage of the production process has been subjected to the greatest attention to detail, from reproducing the subtle effect of fine worked gold and silver that decorate the pages of the manuscript, to finding a modern paper which matches the weight and feel of the original animal skin vellum pages. The volume is accompanied by a scholarly commentary by leading medieval manuscripts expert Michelle P. Brown, which details the history of the manuscript and includes a folio-by-folio description.

        THE VIEW FROM CASTLE ROCK

      New York City, NY: McClelland & Stewart, 2006. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: McClelland & Stewart, 2006. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 360 pages. The author&#39;s twelfth collection of short stories. One of Alice Munro&#39;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&#39;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&#39;s case. Upon its publication, Munro prematurely announced that it would be her last, and that she planned to retire permanently. The back DJ flap sums up Munro&#39;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. <b><i> 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. </b></i> Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2013. One of the greatest living writers. A fine collectible copy.

        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&#39;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&#39;s &#39;The Meaning of Night&#39; is the most recent example of what one might dub &#39;Victorian noir.&#39; As in a 19th-century sensation novel think of Wilkie Collins&#39; &#39;The Woman in White,&#39; John Meade Falkner&#39;s &#39;The Nebuly Coat&#39; or even Charles Dickens&#39; &#39;Bleak House&#39; its intricate plot turns on the question of who should rightfully inherit a great estate and a sizable fortune.
