        One Hundred Years of Solitude

      London: The Folio Society, 2006. First edition of the Folio Society edition of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's magnum opus. Octavo, original green cloth, pictorial endpapers. Signed by Gabriel Garcia Marquez on the title page. Additionally signed by the translator, Gregory Rabassa on the title page, who has transcribed the line from this novel as follows, "There is always something left to love. Gregory Rabassa." Fine in a fine slipcase. Illustrated by Neil Packer. Since it was first published, One Hundred Years of Solitude has been translated into 37 languages and has sold more than 30 million copies. "It chronicles the life of Macondo, a fictional town based in part of Garcia Marquez's hometown of Aracataca, Colombia, and seven generations of the founding family, the Buendias. He creates a complex world with characters and events that display the full range of human experience. For the reader, the pleasure of the novel derives from its fast-paced narrative, humor, vivid characters, and fantasy elements. In this 'magic realism', the author combines imaginative flights of fancy with social realism to give us images of levitating priests, flying carpets, a four-year-long rainstorm, and a young woman ascending to heaven while folding sheets" (NYPL Books of the Century 31).

        THE GRIMOIRE OR BOOK OF SPELLS OF POPE HONORIUS.

      UK: The Society For Esoteric Endeavour., 2006. First Edition Thus. Quarter Leather. Fine in Slipcase. First Printing of this Edition, a reproduction of a 19th Century Manuscript which belonged to F.G Irwin, a member of Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia, The Society of Eight, the Fratres Lucis and the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Issued in a very limited edition of just 65 hand-numbered copies, of which this is copy number 16. Octavo, bound in green cloth over beveled boards with a full green morocco leather spine, an oval title label mounted on the front panel that has been titled and decorated in gilt, & hand-marbled endpapers. 204 pp. The original manuscript, of which this is a facsimile, had been bound into a book. This was disbound and each individual sheet was reproduced onto pure cotton paper - even the blank leaves and the slight foxing that affect them have been reproduced. The sheets were then hand-sewn copying the arrangements of the signatures in the original. The text block was then cased in a quarter Moroccan goatskin binding with traditional bookcloth. The boards are beveled and there is a leather title label gilt blocked with 23½ carat gold leaf. The edges of the title label are embedded into the board. The endpapers are of hand-made Cockerell marbled paper. A bookplate of the Society of Esoteric Endeavour identifies the limitation and the number of each copy. The bookplate of F.G Irwin has been reproduced and that is also tipped in. A fine copy of a fine facsimile of a remarkable manuscript. On publication, subscribers could purchase this book with or without a slipcase, this copy has the slipcase. Both the book and the slipcase are in fine / as new condition. It should be noted that this was the first book issued under the imprint of The Society for Esoteric Endeavour. The text is in two parts. The first is a Grimoire of Ceremonial Magic and Demonic Invocation written in 17th Century France and spuriously attributed to the much earlier Pope. Most are conjurations for Lucifer though a great range of daemonic names are given. It must be said that the rituals are very extreme and likely violate modern sensibilities. The second part is very different, being a collection of spells drawn from various sources, two being named individuals. Many of the spells use Christian words of powers in other cases the powers invoked are obscure and even demonic. Most are for healing but some are ambiguous. Some are clearly folk-magic, recording the spells of cunning men and witches. One spell, which is attributed to a minister, is a brief spell to obtain your desires involving a psychoactive dose of nutmeg and unfamiliar words of power. Another summons the shade of a dead person by planting beans in orifices of a skull, with the practitioner being able to share in the spirit's invisibility by placing a similar bean his mouth. The original manuscript is unique in many ways, and this is the finest reproduction available.

Each unique print has been embossed with a Library logo, initialed by David Freed, numbered and dated. The print is handsomely matted and framed.

        Kurt Schwitters Catalogue raisonné Band 3 1937-1948 / Volume 3 1937-1948 (Gebundene Ausgabe) von Karin Orchard (Autor), Isabel Schulz (Autor)

      Hatje Cantz Verlag Sprengel Museum Hannover Norddeutsche Landesbank Stadtsparkasse Hannover Hanover, 2006. Hier: Band III 1937-1948 / Volume III 1937-1948: Nach mehrjähriger, intensiver Forschungstätigkeit jetzt komplett: der Catalogue raisonné zu Kurt Schwitters' Oeuvre in drei Bänden mit einem Gesamtumfang von über 2 000 Seiten und mehr als 3 300 Abbildungen.Obwohl Kurt Schwitters zu den bedeutendsten Künstlern der internationalen Moderne zählt, ist sein vielseitiges bildnerisches Oeuvre nur partiell erschlossen. Erstmalig wird nun in einem dreibändigen Werkverzeichnis sein Gesamtschaffen dokumentiert und gewürdigt. Nach weltweiten Recherchen und der vollständigen Aufarbeitung des künstlerischen Nachlasses, können jetzt rund 4 000 Werke aus dem Zeitraum von 1905 bis 1948 vorgestellt werden, darunter zahlreiche bislang unveröffentlichte Bilder und Zeichnungen. Schwitters' Arbeiten werden chronologisch und innerhalb eines Jahres nach Gattungen geordnet. Jedes Werk wird schwarzweiß abgebildet, verschollene und zerstörte Arbeiten werden dokumentiert. Darüber hinaus werden rund 120 repräsentative Werke ganzseitig in Farbe präsentiert. Der umfangreichste dritte Band, der die Jahre 1937 bis 1948 umfasst, beinhaltet jene Werke, die in der Zeit des Exils zunächst in Norwegen und ab 1940 in England entstanden. Farbig gefasste Plastiken sowie Collagen und Assemblagen, deren Materialvielfalt um Fundstücke aus der Natur bereichert ist, führen das frühe Merzkonzept fort. Darüber hinaus werden die zwei Merzbauten Haus am Bakken und Merz Barn, die weniger bekannten norwegischen Landschaftsbilder und Zeichnungen sowie die Porträts aus der englischen Internierungszeit vorgestellt. Zum Künstler: Kurt Schwitters (Hannover 1887-1948 Kendal, Lake District). Studium an der Kunstgewerbeschule Hannover und an der Königlich Sächsischen Akademie der Künste Dresden. 1911 erste Ausstellungsbeteiligung. 1919 erstes Merzbild und Veröffentlichung des Gedichts »An Anna Blume«. Seit 1923 Arbeiten am Merzbau, Erscheinen der Publikationsreihe Merz. 1937 Diffamierung seiner Werke, Emigration nach Norwegen. 1940 Flucht nach England. 1943 Zerstörung des Hauses und des Merzbaus durch Luftangriff. Although Kurt Schwitters was one of the most influential artists of international modernism, only select portions of his immensely varied body of pictorial work have been investigated thoroughly. And what a body of work it is, unlike one ever seen before or after, combining bits of found detritus into compositions of tight, unexpected melodies and startling tunes. Schwitters was constantly sighting scraps of handbills, train tickets, newspapers, clothing, and more on the city streets, pocketing them for later use in one of his Merz collages. His intense body of found object constructions stands as one of the premier examples of the ultimtate modern form, assemblage, of which he has been called the "grandfather." After extensive research worldwide and a complete examination of his artistic estate, Schwitters's oeuvre has finally been properly acknowledged, documented, and prepared for public presentation. The comprehensive Kurt Schwitters Catalogue Raisonna, of which the present volume is the third installation, includes more than four thousand works from the period between 1905 and 1948, many of them published for the first time. Lost and destroyed works are documented whenever possible. For ease of reference, the survey is ordered chronologically; within each year, works are sub-divided according to genre. In this third volume are presented creations spanning Schwitters's years in exile, 1937 to 1948, when he escaped Nazi Germany to live first in Norway and then in England. Though artworks are primarily reproduced in black-and-white, each volume of the catalogue also presents color reproductions of representative works Zusatzinfo 1312 Abb., davon 119 farbig Sprache englisch; deutsch Maße 265 x 308 mm Gewicht 4830 g Einbandart Leinen Kunst Musik Theater Kunstgeschichte Kunststile catalogue raisonne catalogue raisonné classical modern art Dada Sachbücher Kunst Literatur Bildende Kunst Sachbücher Künstler Literatur Bildende Kunst Klassische Moderne Schwitters, Kurt Schwitters, Kurt Werkverzeichnis Werkverzeichnisse ISBN-10 3-7757-0989-4 / 3775709894 ISBN-13 978-3-7757-0989-7 / 9783775709897 Kurt Schwitters Catalogue raisonné Band 3 1937-1948/ Volume 3 1937-1948 (Gebundene Ausgabe) von Karin Orchard (Autor), Isabel Schulz (Autor)

Total 31 issues, including 2 double and 3 triple.Second series: Number 1, Outubro / Dezembro 1983-number 20, 1992; also the three unnumbered special issues: 1984 Maio, Sobre Eduardo Lourenço; 1984 Dezembro, Jaime Cortesão; and 1986 Dezembro, Fernando Gil: Cruzamentos da enciclopédia. Total 4 issues.Third series: Numbers 1-9, Janeiro-Abril de 2006-Setembro-Dezembro 2008. Total 9 issues.The first series is subtitled Revista nacional de artes gráficas. As the title implies, it is devoted to the graphic arts, with emphasis on printing processes, machinery, ink, paper and types. There are also articles on printing history, such as that in the first number by Jorge Peixoto on "Custódio José de Oliveira e as artes gráficas em Portugal"; and José Pedro Machado "O impressor de Os Lvsiadas" in the second issue.The second series is subtitled Revista da Imprensa Nacional / Casa da Moeda. It contains some material on printing history, but is mainly concerned with literature, literary history and criticism, with some bibliography thrown in. Edited by Diogo Pires Aurélio, it includes contributions by Jorge Borges de Macedo, José-Augusto França, Eduardo Lourenço, Vasco Graça Moura, Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen, Jorge Listopad, Hernâni Cidade, Clara Rocha, António Reis, Luís Filipe Barreto, Viale Moutinho, Eduardo Prado Coelho, José Mattoso, Diogo Pires Aurélio, Miguel Torga, Mário Cláudio, Luís de Albuquerque, Eugénio Lisboa, José Fernandes Fafe, Eugénio de Andrade, António Ramos Rosa, Maria Alzira Seixo, Joel Serrão, António Coimbra Martins, Urbano Tavares Rodrigues, and others. Some of the literary contributions are otherwise unpublished.The third series, of which nine numbers have appeared, includes three essays on Fernando Gil (1937-2006), by José Marinho, Miguel Real, and Manuel Ferreira Patrício. There are additional essays by A.M. Machado Pires on post-modernism, Ivo Castro on Pessoa, José Carlos Seabra Pereira on Vitorino Nemésio and Gomes Leal as art critics, and Rui de Figueiredo Marcos on the work of Paulo Merêa. A short story by José-Augusto França is followed by a brief theatrical piece by Luiz Francisco Rebello. The first number also contains an homage to Afonso Lopes Vieira, as well as critical articles by Luiz Francisco Rebello on the theater of José Régio, Duarte Ivo Cruz on the theater of Luiz Francisco Rebello, Duarte Ivo Cruz on the fourth volume of the Teatro completo of Jaime Salazar Sampaio, and more. Subsequent numbers contain additional material along these lines.*** For the first series, we were able to confirm that it began in 1972 and that the British Library holds volume VI, numbers 1-3 [a triple issue]. Porbase lists for the first series only the first volume, 1972, and for the second series only states that it began in 1983 and that its appearance was "irregular". The British Library Integrated Catalogue states that for the first series the BL has only volume VI, numbers 1-3; for the second series the BL holdings are less clear, the BLIC stating that it begins in 1983. Hollis does not list the first series at all, and states that Harvard has on [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

With an engraved plate with a German note to the reader, and 25 numbered plates of architectural plans, elevations and sections engraved by J.D. Ringlin after Steingruber. (3) CHARMETON, Georges. Plans de divers edifices et corniches choisies ... | Abrisse unterschiedener Gebälcke und Kronwercke ...Augsburg, Johann Andreas Pfeffel, [ca. 1740/48]. With 12 engraved plates, including the title-page, the illustrations showing the entablatures of various classical Roman buildings. 3 works (1 in 2 parts) in 1 volume. Large oblong folio (25 x 38.5 cm). Near contemporary white half vellum.

      Ad 1: Berlin Kat. 3332 (part 1, bound with part 2 of a different work); Millard coll. Northern European 18; WorldCat (3 copies of part 1 only); not in Springer, Tuinkunst; ad 2: Berlin Kat. 2006; Cicognara 676; WorldCat (7 or 9 copies); not in BAL; ad 3: Berlin Kat. 3929; WorldCat (Czech description without location); not in BAL. A remarkable volume containing three rare print series on architecture, architectural ornament and garden ornament, all published by the important Augsburg engraver and print publisher Johann Andreas Pfeffel the elder (1674-1748).Ad 1: First and only edition of a very rare ornamental garden pattern book (part 2 is especially rare) by the recently appointed court gardener and inspector of the Salzburg gardens, Franz Anton Danreiter (1695-1760). In 1728 Danreiter was appointed court gardener and inspector to related buildings by the ducal bishop of Salzburg. He translated Dezallier's La theorie et la pratique du jardinage into German, helping introduce French garden design to German-speaking countries. His own designs in the present work show more than 100 ornamental and fanciful planting patterns on 42 plates, many including fountains. This was his first and rarest model book with garden plans for parterres. They show that far from endlessly repeating the strict symmetrical canon of French Baroque garden design, Danreiter developed a never-ending variety of ornamental designs which herald the German rococo.Ad 2: First edition of Johann David Steingruber's first published architectural book, showing working drawings with plans, elevations and sections of town houses and palaces, mostly with scales. It includes several designs for a garden pavilion in an aristocratic park, lavish town houses for the haute bourgeois, and finally a ducal residence. Each design is shown in as much detail as possible. The grander houses are shown including streets and gardens. The Margrave of Brandenburg-Ansbach appointed Steingruber (1702-1787) court architect in 1734. In the course of his near sixty-year tenure he transformed the townscape of Ansbach following his own designs. He is best remembered for his playful "Architektonisches Alphabet" (1773), a remarkable series of designs in which each building has a ground plan based on a different letter in the alphabet.Ad 3: Rare 18th century copy of selections from the equally rare Diverses corniches choisies sur l'anticque, originally issued in 30 plates ca. 1670 by the ornamentalist and painter George Charmeton (1623-1674). It shows ornamental designs from classical Roman entablatures (architraves, friezes and cornices).With an early owner's list of the content and a library stamp. In very good condition, with only a crease across the corner of a couple leaves and an occasional minor spot. The paper sides are foxed, with a small water stain and a few chips, but the binding is otherwise also very good. Three rare architectural and ornamental print series, especially valuable for the garden layouts.

        Gioielli d'Arte. Medioevo.

      Istituto dell'Enciclopedia Italiana 2006 - Roma, 2006; ril. in pelle in cofanetto, pp. 964, ill. col., tavv. col. Negli ultimi tempi gli studi sul Medioevo sono andati via via intensificandosi approfondendo e rinnovando in Misura rilevante la sua conoscenza. È emerso il quadro di un'età - in cui germoglia l'idea di Europa - ricca di interesse per storici, sociologi, artisti, psicologi, romanzieri e densa di fascino per tutti coloro che si interrogano sull'inizio del terzo millennio, riscontrando curiose assonanze tra i due periodi. Da tale messe di studi e interpretazioni nasce un'immagine del tutto contrastante con la vecchia concezione del Medioevo come età dei secoli bui: l'età di mezzo è in realtà un'epoca irradiata dalla luce delle espressioni artistiche tra le quali brillano di inconfondibile splendore l'oreficeria e, in genere, la manifattura di oggetti preziosi. La sontuosa opera "Medioevo. Gioielli d'arte" che l'Istituto Treccani propone ai propri lettori più raffinati si pone lo scopo di presentare gli oggetti più significativi di quel periodo, fondamentale tra l'età classica e quella moderna.

Generally a very good set. A full run of the Himalayan Journal from its inception in 1929 through to the 2006 62nd issue. With an incomplete collection of 32 Index pamphlets. 'The Himalayan Journal continues to be the prime activity of HC. First published in 1928, HJ has achieved a world wide recognition as the most authoritative source of reference on the Himalaya, Karakoram and Hindu Kush. Except for the war years it was continually published covering all the major expeditions. Over the years many expeditions are forgotten except those recorded in the literature and journals. It had a string of great editors. Maj. Kenneth Mason of Survey of India was the first editor who produced HJ for 14 years. He set very high standards and when expeditions were few he gave a scholarly outlook to the publication. Mason set up a tradition that others continued. C.W.F. Noyce, H.W. Tobin, T.H. Braham and Dr. K. Biswas were some editors who followed. Soli S. Mehta who took over editorship in 1967 brought fresh ideas and energies. He gaveHJ a face lift and introduced many changes. Soli Mehta produced 11 issues before his untimely death in 1989. R. E. Hawkins was responsible for strengthening of HJ. As the Hon. Asst. Editor he set up editorial traditions and brought HJ in line with the other modern publications. Now a team of enthusiasts under editors Harish Kapadia and Monesh Devjani continue the HJ tradition' (Himalaya Club official website).

        Black Swan Green

      London: Sceptre, 2006. First Edition. Cloth. As New/As New. Book Description: (London) Sceptre (2006)., 2006. The first British edition of the author's highly praised fourth book, a semi-autobiographical novel of a year in the life of a 13 year-old boy. Mitchell has been shortlisted for the Booker Prize twice, and his prior books had been praised for the complex structures and elaborate style. This book, a more straightforward narrative, was a notable departure for such a highly praised author, and earned excellent critical reviews and something of a cult following. A signed limited edition was later produced by Waterstone's, but this is the true first. Signed by the author, with the promotional diary. Also together with a proof dust jacket, which omits a photo credit and mention of one of the author's two children. All elements fine. First Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
