        One Printed Page 2

      2006. TUERLINCKX, Joelle. One Printed Page 2. Contains "the Biggest Surface on Earth Scale 1:1." A computer generated image on paper, diameter 270 mm. Matted in Publisher's cardboard portfolio. New York: Library Council of the Museum of Modern Art, 2004. |~||~||~||~| In her films, sculptures, public projects, and extensive publications, the Belgian Conceptual artist Joëlle Tuerlinckx looks at unlikely spaces and substances to pose formal, perceptual, physical and social conundrums. This work was generated from a sample artifact that the artist calls "original momametamaterial"-a sheet of paper covered with a thick layer of powdery gray photocopier toner. Each unique image, signed and dated to the hour, was produced on a series of desktop laser printers over many days. Each reads as a shimmering, minimalist gray abstraction, printed on a circular sheet of paper, or as a gray void, marked by the shifting moiré patterns that in commercial printing may indicate degraded reproduction. Accompanying each piece is a seemingly scientific, highly technical description of the project, written by the artist, with computer-generated diagrams of atomic spheres. The text, sometimes credible, sometimes vaguely preposterous, outlines the complex electrostatic calibrations and other processes by which the artist fabricated "extracts" from a surface that does not exist in nature. One of 200 copies, Print signed on verso by Tuerlinckx and text leaf initialed and dated on each side by her. The print immaculate, slight staining on one corner of the cardboard portfolio.

        THE IDIOT: THE PENGUIN BOOKS 60TH ANNIVERSARY ARTIST BOOK

      London, England: Penguin/Penguin Designer Classics, 2006. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. As New/As New Dust Jacket.. London, England: Penguin/Penguin Designer Classics, 2006. Hardcover. As New/As New. First Edition/First Printing. 704 pages. Artist Book. One of the most beautiful Artist Book interpretations of the classic ever created. Limited Edition of one numbered and signed copy. Should not be confused with the Limited Edition of 1000 copies. A brilliant production by Ron Arad: Oversize-volume format. Text by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Art by Ron Arad. White cardboard box. Printed on archival acid-free stock paper in the United Kingdom to absolutely the highest standards. In transparent Plexiglas ("Perspex") box, which serves as the book's DJ. Rather than just an outer slipcase, it is completely integral to the book. Published on the occasion of Penguin Book's 60th Anniversary, "The Idiot" is one of five classics that the publisher issued in a Limited Edition by commissioning five of the world's most important artists in their respective fields. The other titles are Gustave Flaubert's "Madame Bovary", D. H. Lawrence's "Lady Chatterley's Lover", F. Scott Fitzgerald's "Tender Is The Night: A Romance", and Fyodor Dostoyevsky's "Crime And Punishment" (he is the only novelist to be honored with two masterpieces in the Series). Penguin held a global auction of the "Number 1" signed copy of each title on the day of its 60th Anniversary in 2006. "Arad's book has no cover so the reader will pick it up and read the author's first words. It is stripped back to show the glue and thread in the spine which is visible through an acrylic slipcase with a fresnel lens so the text appears to move as the lid is removed" (Publisher's blurb). "By not wanting to have a cover, it ended with the book becoming an amazing object that is alive, but which maintains its transparency. It becomes a glorious box with a book inside, almost like a monument" (Ron Arad). Said like a true architect who has worked for the Metropolitan Museum of Art New York, the Centre Georges Pompidou Paris, the Vitra Design Museum Germany, and the Victoria & Albert Museum London. The ultimate book-as-object, the literary classic-as-work-of-art, worthy of this auspicious celebration and posterity. An absolute "must-have" edition for Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Ron Arad, and art/graphic design collectors. This copy is Number 1, indicated as such on the Back Limitation Page, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the first page by Ron Arad. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. By special arrangement with Penguin, Arad signed only the first copy of the Limited Edition, an instant collectible. This is the only signed copy available anywhere and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare, one-of-a-kind signed copy thus. One of the greatest novels of all time, re-interpreted by one of the most brilliant architect/designers of our time. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER PENGUIN DESIGNER CLASSIC TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0713999659.

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.

        Broken Manual

      Göttingen: Steidl. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Fine. SIGNED LIMITED FIRST EDITION, one of only 300 copies, signed by Soth and his alter ago Lester B. Morrison, housed in its own unique "book-safe", and with a signed and numbered Soth photograph and booklet. WITH: A set of three limited edition zines (edition of 500) by "Lester B. Morrison" seen as preparatory work for Broken Manual. "Created over four years (2006-2010), Alec Soth's newest book represents a significant departure from his previous publications. Entitled 'Broken Manual,' Soth investigates the places in which people retreat to escape civilization. Soth photographs monks, survivalists, hermits and runaways, but this isn't a conventional documentary book on life 'off the grid.' Instead, working with the writer Lester B. Morrison, the authors have created an underground instruction manual for those looking to escape their lives. "It is common for artists to follow up the publication of their books with 'Special Editions,' but in the case of Broken Manual, this edition is being presented first. Made in an edition of 300, Soth calls this the 'Ideal Edition' of Broken Manual. Each copy of the book is housed inside of another, one-of-a-kind book. These signed and numbered 'shell' books are unique and cut by hand. Inside the shell, there is also a small booklet entitled 'Liberation Billfold Manifest' and an 8×10" print signed and numbered by Alec Soth and Lester B. Morrison" (Little Brown Mushroom website). Göttingen: Steidl, 2010. Quarto, original paper wrappers; housed in a "book-safe" (a Renoir book). The zines are in their original wrappers. Fine condition. Rare.

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.

        LORD JOHN FILM FESTIVAL - SIGNED by 41 - LIMITED FIRST EDITION PRESENTATION COPY

      LORD JOHN FILM FESTIVAL - SIGNED by 41 of the GREATEST FILM DIRECTORS, ACTORS & WRITERS of OUR TIME - and a U.S. PRESIDENT! DELUXE, SIGNED, LIMITED, FIRST EDITION, PRESENTATION COPY with the Rare ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST Illustrated Label on the front cover. Published by Lord John Press, First Edition, 2006. Specially Bound in 1/4 Leather and Black Silk Cloth Covered Boards, with Gilt Lettering and Design to the Leather Spine, and a Small "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest" Poster Illustration on the front cover. The book comes in a special blue silk cloth covered Slipcase with a window that shows the "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest" poster that is on the front cover of the book. From the Colophon Page (the last page): "This first edition of LORD JOHN FILM FESTIVAL is limited to One Hundred Seventy-four numbered copies and Twenty-six lettered copies specially bound, all of which have been signed by various writers, actors and directors..." In addition a very few copies were printed for PRESENTATION by the PUBLISHER. This is one such copy. This first limited numbered edition is the only edition with the complete 41 signatures, as intended by the Lord John Press. (A first "trade edition" of 350 copies was published concurrently, in a trade binding and with fewer signatures. A later trade edition with only a few signatures was published in 2007.) FINE book in a FINE slipcase. It was as new in its plastic wrap, but I removed the original plastic wrap in order to take photos. The thin wrap got majorly torn when opened and removed. Herb Yellin, owner and operator of the Lord John Press, was a collector and publisher of signed books, and also a film buff who collected signed film posters and signed film stills over many years. The Film Festival book is filled with reproductions of film posters and movie stills from his collection. The films and stars range from the silent era to present day modern classics. This book was in the planning stages at the Lord John Press for many years, and quite a number of the signatures for this special first edition were obtained by Herb Yellin in the years prior to its finalization and publication, some from as early as the 1990s. All of the 41 signatures are on special sheets that were kept at the Lord John Press, awaiting to be bound into the final book. And THIS is THAT final book. The signatures in this Special Presentation First Edition are on two four-page sections, one at the front and one at the back. The hand-signed autographs are all prominently displayed. All, except two, of the 41 signers has his or her own Wikipedia page. Each is worth reading by anyone seriously interested in film and film history. As of this writing, 22 of the 41 signers have died in the years since their signatures were obtained for this special edition. The complete list of signers in this limited first edition presentation copy are: BILLY WILDER, ROMAN POLANSKI, RAY BRADBURY, GERALD R. FORD, HARRY CREWS, JOHN UPDIKE, JANET LEIGH, NORMAN JEWISON, JEAN MOREAU, FAYE DUNAWAY, ROBERT BLOCH, RAMSEY CAMPBELL, CHARLES CHAMPLIN (not to be confused with Charlie Chaplin), NORMAN CORWIN, DENNIS ETCHISON, DELBERT MANN, RICHARD C.

Folio. With 299 hand-coloured engraved plates, numbered 1-300 (nos. 157 & 158 in 1 plate). Modern black half calf.

Rare first and only edition of a work on homeopathic medicinal plants written by the German physician Heinrich Goullon jr. (1836-1906), consisting of a text and atlas volume. The text volume starts with a Latin and a German register of all the plants included, followed by a brief preface on homeopathy following the principles of its founder: Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843). The main part of the work gives descriptions of numerous plants, including their external features, environments, official names, healing qualities, applications and a description of the plant's components as shown in the plates. The atlas contains 299 hand-coloured plates showing many of the plants described in the text volume, usually accompanied by their flowers, roots, seeds or fruits. The plates were issued over two years in 60 instalments. Goullon also wrote other medical works, most of them on alternative (homeopathic) medicines for diseases like tuberculosis. His father was a homeopathic physician as well. Even though the present work is very elaborate, it is often overlooked in the secondary literature.Only very slightly browned and a few plates slightly foxed. Binding in very good condition, spine slightly discoloured. Overall a very good copy.
