        The Audacity of Hope Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream

      Published by Crown Publishers, New York. 2006 **Signed by Barack Obama* This fantasti first edition is in Fine condition and housed in a dustjacket that is also in Fine condition. The only flaws to speak of are the slightest degree of bumping to the spine ends of the boards and corresponding slight bumping to the dustjacket spine ends. Otherwise this book is in exceptional condtiion, bound in black cloth with gold gilt lettering to the spine. Inside, the pages are clean bright and blemish-free and the book is tightly bound, perhaps even unread. The dustjacket clean clean and bright and free from any marking. The book is signed by Barack Obama himself to the title page and to guarentee authenticity the book comes with the ticket stubb to the event hosted by him on 31st October 2006 where he signed the book. This is a real opportunity to add to a collection of signed rare and first edition books with a real gem, which will only increase in value as the years go by and it comes to represent a little piece of history.

        The Surinam Album

      Limited edition of 1000 numbered copies. The 91 plates in this facsimile edition have been reproduced by digital photography from the original album in the British Museum, London. Three additional colour plates loosely inserted. With commentary volume by Julie Harvey (Entomology Librarian, Natural History Museum). Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) was German-born naturalist, artist and explorer. At a time when it was not customary for women to pursue careers in science and exploration, she became a pioneering entomologist. She was one of the first naturalists who reared live insects, which gave her an insight into their natural history and behaviour. She showed that, contrary to the prevailing notion of the time, insects were not spontaneously created, but went through distinct developmental transformations. Through her accurate illustrations of insects and their food plants, she was the first to document these life stages for the public. In 1699, aged 52, Merian sailed to South America on a scientific voyage, the first expedition of this scale a woman had ever undertaken. Her study of the insects of Surinam is a scientific and artistic achievement that changed the course of entomology forever.

        Nicht mehr männlich und nicht mehr weiblich?: Ekklesiologie und Geschlecht in ökumenischem Horizont von Heike Walz

      Lembeck 2006 2006 Softcover 487 S. 22,8 x 14,8 x 3 cm Hier ist nicht mehr männlich und weiblich, heißt es bei Paulus in Bezug auf die Kirche. Gerade an der Geschlechterfrage scheiden sich bekanntlich die Geister, nicht nur in der Ökumene, sondern oft in den Kirchen selber. Während feministische Theologinnen seit etwa dreißig Jahren das Verhältnis von Ekklesiologie und Geschlecht aus befreiungstheologischer Perspektive von Frauen thematisieren, hat die gegenwärtige kulturwissenschaftliche Geschlechterforschung Geschlecht und Körper in dekonstruktivistischer Sicht grundsätzlich in Frage gestelltGibt es wirklich zwei eindeutige Geschlechter oder weder Mann noch Frau? Das vorliegende Buch stellt sich diesen Herausforderungen an die theologische Geschlechterforschung. Es bietet eine Aufarbeitung europäisch-nordamerikanischer feministischer Ekklesiologien und weniger bekannten Ansätzen aus der weltweiten Ökumene. Die Studie zeigtEkklesiologie und Geschlechterforschung sind jeweils kontextuell bedingt, indem ins Nachdenken über Kirche bewußt oder unbewußt konfessionelle Traditionen, kulturelle Prägungen und Geschlechterkonzeptionen einfließen; und Geschlechterkonzeptionen bleiben ihrerseits nicht unberührt von Konfession und Kultur.

        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. 2006. Hardcover. 30,5 x 26,6 x 6,4 cm. 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) Kunstgeschichte Kunststile catalogue raisonne catalogue raisonné classical modern art Dada Bildende Kunst Künstler Klassische Moderne Schwitters, Kurt Schwitters, Kurt Werkverzeichnis Werkverzeichnisse Sachbücher Kunst Literatur 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.

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«.

From the publisher: "John Wood suggested to Eikoh Hosoe that we pair his work with the poet, Charles Baudelaire, and Eikoh told John that Baudelaire was his favorite poet. They each initially selected 11 poems---9 of them matched! Eikoh and I spent a full day, as John Stevenson hosted us at his then Platinum Gallery in Chelsea, for the signing ritual of the platinum prints and the colophon pages. Eikoh was methodical in signing all of his prints. He would sign for an hour and then close his eyes for 15 minutes or so. It was a real dance and an honor to watch. I admire him and his demeanor, which is not unlike what I would expect if I were to meet the Buddha. In fact, I believe I did. -Steven Albahari". [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Garry Kasparov (Armenian: ????? ????????; Russian: ?? ??? ?? ????? ????? ???; Russian pronunciation: ['gar?? 'k?im?v??t? k?'spar?f]) (born as Garry Kimovich Weinstein on April 13, 1963, in Baku, Azerbaijan SSR, Soviet Union; now Azerbaijan) is a Soviet/Russian former World Chess Champion, regarded by many as the greatest chess player of all time. He is also a writer and political activist. Kasparov became the youngest ever undisputed World Chess Champion in 1985. He held the official FIDE world title until 1993, when a dispute with FIDE led him to set up a rival organization, the Professional Chess Association. He continued to hold the "Classical" World Chess Championship until his defeat by Vladimir Kramnik in 2000. He is also widely known for being the first world chess champion to lose a match to a computer, when he lost to Deep Blue in 1997. Kasparov's ratings achievements include being rated world #1 according to Elo rating almost continuously from 1986 until his retirement in 2005 and holding the all-time highest rating of 2851. He also holds records for consecutive tournament victories and Chess Oscars. Since 1984 Kasparov was member of Central Committee of Komsomol and CPSU member. Kasparov announced his retirement from professional chess on March 10, 2005, to devote his time to politics and writing. He formed the United Civil Front movement, and joined as a member of The Other Russia, a coalition opposing the administration of Vladimir Putin. He was a candidate for the 2008 Russian presidential race, but later withdrew. Widely regarded in the West as a symbol of opposition to Putin, Kasparov's support in Russia is low. Condition: Volume on lacking front end paper else a a near fine set in like jackets. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Three Cups of Tea [Advance Copy, Signed by Both; First Printing, Signed]

      (NY): (Viking). (2006). Two volumes: signed copies of both the advance reading copy and the first edition. The first edition is signed by Mortenson; the advance reading copy is signed by both Mortenson and David Relin. Textual differences exist between the advance copy and the first edition. An inspirational, then infamous, account of Mortenson's quest to build schools in Pakistan (and later Afghanistan) in response to kindnesses bestowed on him by locals while he was lost in Pakistan after an unsuccessful ascent of K2, a quest that led to his founding the Central Asia Institute and to a still-ongoing effort that has resulted, to date, in the building of more than 190 schools. The hardcover edition sold only 20,000 copies; the paperback sold over four million copies in more than 40 countries and stayed on The New York Times bestseller list for more than four years, until, in 2011, author Jon Krakauer revealed on 60 Minutes that Mortenson and Relin had taken liberties with the narrative and, in Mortenson's case, liberties with his financial relationship to the Central Asia Institute. The book is uncommon in the first printing, and with the original subtitle which referred to terrorism rather than to peace. This is the only copy of the advance reading copy we have seen. The first edition is signed by Mortenson, who has added the word "Peace!" The advance reading copy is signed by Mortenson and by Relin, who at one point claimed sole authorship of the book, saying it was published with Mortenson as co-author over his objections. Relin committed suicide the year after the controversy broke. The advance reading copy has a mild corner tap and slight cover splaying and is very near fine. The first edition is fine in a fine dust jacket, with a ticket and a program for a Mortenson reading (of the sequel, Stones Into Schools) laid in. Each book has a custom clamshell case. A bestselling story of a Nobel Peace Prize-nominated attempt to achieve peace through education, flawed only by being more inspirational than true. First Edition. Hardcover.

        David Bowie - The Jean Genie.

      (Brighton): Self-published, 2006, 2006. SIGNED by the photographer. From Ian Dickson's 'Collector's Series'; a range of handmade box sets, each title containing seven hand-printed images in signed mounts; offered in Standard, Digital or DeLuxe (best) edition. The Jean Genie comprises six silver gelatine prints and one colour digital print of David Bowie live in concert (02/06/72 and 07/01/73), during the classic Ziggy Stardust / Spiders era; this is the superior De Luxe edition which uses fibre-based prints (instead of resin-coated), in hinged archival mounts (instead of standard mounts). This is copy no.3 of an unspecified edition number (perhaps fewer than 10 examples), the series now having been discontinued by the publisher due to production costs and time constraints. The mounted photographs are contained in archival quality polyester sleeves with a frame dimension of 11 x 14 inches. Housed in a custom-made, illustrated clamshell box (a rather ad-hoc production assembled by Dickson himself) with a numbered certificate affixed to the underside of the lid. The highly individual cover art is by famed cartoonist/illustrator Ray Lowry and a short but entertaining biography of the photographer 'Hired Gun' (also with Lowry-designed cover) completes the attractive package. A fine copy. Ian Dickson has been photographing rock stars since 1972 and his work has appeared in Disc, Record Mirror, New Musical Express, Sounds, Vox, Mojo, Q, Rolling Stone and elsewhere. His first exhibition was in London in 1992 and several successful European shows followed. In 1994, a selection of his work was shown at the MTV Awards in Berlin, at the Brit Awards at Alexandra Palace, and at the World Music Awards in Monte Carlo and Copenhagen. A feature on his portfolio was published in the March 1995 issue of Q magazine and in August that year, he was recognised by the 'Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum' who included his famous Rod Stewart 'pyjama' portrait; this was followed by an Eric Clapton and a Muddy Waters portrait, added in February 2000.

The mounted photographs are contained in archival quality polyester sleeves with a frame dimension of 11 x 14 inches. Housed in a custom-made, illustrated clamshell box (a rather ad-hoc production assembled by Dickson himself) with a numbered certificate affixed to the underside of the lid. The highly individual cover art is by famed cartoonist/illustrator Ray Lowry and a short but entertaining biography of the photographer 'Hired Gun' (also with Lowry-designed cover) completes the attractive package. A fine copy. Ian Dickson has been photographing rock stars since 1972 and his work has appeared in Disc, Record Mirror, New Musical Express, Sounds, Vox, Mojo, Q, Rolling Stone and elsewhere. His first exhibition was in London in 1992 and several successful European shows followed. In 1994, a selection of his work was shown at the MTV Awards in Berlin, at the Brit Awards at Alexandra Palace, and at the World Music Awards in Monte Carlo and Copenhagen. A feature on his portfolio was published in the March 1995 issue of Q magazine and in August that year, he was recognised by the 'Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum' who included his famous Rod Stewart 'pyjama' portrait; this was followed by an Eric Clapton and a Muddy Waters portrait, added in February 2000. The Led Zeppelin Concert File, Dave Lewis and Simon Pallett,1997.
