        Perishable Press. Walter Hamady. Complete set of the Interminable Gabberjabb series, four of which are inscribed. 8 Volumes

      Perishable Press, Wisconsin 2007 - The Gabberjabbs are particularly fine examples of the art of Walter Hamady - and they are the most elusive of his books. All but the last published, HUNKERING THE LAST GABBERJABB (8), are long out of print. Complete sets are offered infrequently. The artist / author / printer / publisher / designer, Walter Hamady, has been compared to Kurt Schwitters, as well as Marcel Duchamp and Joseph Cornell, Hamady has been a major influence on at least one generation of book artists. He is the recipient of numerous grants and awards and one-man and group exhibitions. He has been the subject of many articles, and his works are in most of this country's important rare book libraries, i.e. the Houghton, Yale, Getty Center, Newberry, Walker Art Center, Cleveland Institute of Art, as well as outside the U.S.: Bodleian Library, British Library, Klingspor Museum, Lenin Library, Royal Library Stockholm, Victoria & Albert, etc. For an insightful assessment of this series one should consult two essays propounding the many levels and layers involved: the first, by Mary Lydon in "Visible Language" Volume 25, Number 2/3 entitled, "The Book As The Trojan Horse of Art" and the second, by Roy R. Behrens in "Print" January / February 1997 entitled, "The Gift of Gabberjabbs."1. Interminable Gabberjabbs (1), from an issue of 120 copies, all printed on (according to the bibliography) "a variety of Shadwell scraps in progressively different sizes." Hamady dedicated this book to his neighbor, Ivan Staley, who showed him how to use an ear-tattooing device for cows, which Hamady has used to number the copies in this edition. In return, Hamady showed Staley how to make paper. Page size: 11 x 6-1/2 inches down to 5-15/16 x 4 inches (with several in-between sizes) 26pp, 23 of which are printed. Bound: blue Fabriano Cover wrappers, U.S. Geologic Survey maps of Wisconsin, fine. PP#61, copy #25. 2. Hunkering in Wisconsin, Another Interminable Gaggerblabb (2), one of 125 copies, each copy numbered using the "nNasco hip tags" (tags pasted to the hip of livestock at auction). Page size: 8 ½ x 6 ¼ inches, 17 page surfaces, 11 printed in handset Palatino in flesh, red, grey-blue, purple, yellow, white and greenish-black. Bound: Nideggen paper cover with pasted on white label bordered in red with rubber-stamped "ig2" on label in black. Illustrated by Jack Beal Jack. Beal's tomatoes are omnipresent, casting their long shadows in this ode to joy from Hamady, dedicated to the fruits of the summer garden, fine. PP#62, copy #87.3. Thumbnailing the Hilex / Gabberjabb Number 3. One of fewer than 125 copies, this copy inscribed by the author on the front flyleaf, "for the JF / Holla by Golli / Buh /Wha Ma Holli / and for Mo and fer / the water Ouzel and / Shallows @ the Bridge" above a flourish and heart, also signed by the printer / publisher "Voltaire (the) Hamady / 72" on 8th leaf, above the text "to be continued with one about VP Romus in Hampstead or a pair about cats or another one like the one that started this series." The 69th book of the Press, the third in the Gabberjabbs series, was to be limited to 125 copies, however the author printer notes that due to "playing around with glue & cutting dies & ink there is a shortage" all on smooth Frankfurt Cream paper "with the chain lines going the wrong way" (printer's notes in bibliography), housed in green cloth over boards clamshell box. Page size: 15 x 7-½ inches; 20 page surfaces, 9 printed. Bound by the author / printer: hand sewn into green Canson MI-Teintes wrappers with title extravagantly and elegantly printed on front panel in light grey, housed in custom-made green cloth over boards clamshell box.

At first glance, this appears to be a rather straight-forward press book.

        Green Blades, from her mound (No. III of X of the special edition); Poems from "Poems of 1912 - 1913" by Thomas Hardy, A selection by Mark Cazalet who also made all the images

      The Old Stile Press, [Monmouthshire] 2007 - No. III of X of the special edition, total edition 210, Folio - over 12" to 15" tall, 46 pp., signed by artist. Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) is one of Britain's most influential Victorian novelists and poets; he often wrote of tragic characters struggling against their passions and social circumstances, and was nominated twice for the Nobel Prize in Literature. In addition to being a writer of prose he was a prolific poet; from 1898 until his death in 1928 Hardy published eight volumes of poetry, with about one thousand poems being published in his lifetime. As is often the case, his inspiration came from life; Hardy's wife, Emma, died in November 1912 in the attic room of their house where she had lived estranged from him; their marriage had hardened into an empty shell and Hardy had long been in love with Florence Digdale, whom he married the following year. However, on reading Emma's secret memoirs detailing his cruelty and the breakdown of their marriage, Hardy was hit by an avalanche of grief. He returned to the north Cornish coast of their courtship and spent the rest of 1912 and 1913 producing his most lyrical and abiding collection of poetry. In this lovely version by The Old Stile Press, Mark Cazalet's images act as visual equivalents for the extraordinary insights Hardy found in the depths of his experience, with the sequence of poems arranged to suggest Hardy's gradual reconciliation to guilt and grief, resolving into a dawning sense of acceptance. (N.B., from the web sites of the Old Stile Press, Wikipedia and Poetry Foundation.) ***DESCRIPTION: Bound in yellow ochre cloth with white paper wrapping around from the back to front boards with brown illustration and green lettering, twenty-two full-page black illustrations with various colours, each image is formed from one woodcut and one linocut and were all printed from the original blocks; set in Centaur on Fabriano Tiziano paper, folio size (approximately 13" tall), unpaginated with 23 printed leaves, bound by The Fine Book Bindery in Wellingborough, signed and numbered by artist Mark Cazalet; the special edition was limited to ten copies numbered I - X, this being no. III, total edition of 210. Accompanying the special edition is a separate yellow ochre cloth bound wallet including six separate original linocuts titled, numbered, and signed by Cazalet, each with its own tissue guard. Both items are encased in a green cloth clamshell box lined with brown velvet-like material, the front cover has a cream paper label with a brown illustration. ***CONDITION: Both volumes and case are in fine condition; clean, crisp, as new from the publisher. ***POSTAGE: Due to the weight of this set, additional postage will apply; we are happy to ship at cost for both domestic and international customers, please inquire for more details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        Angriff auf die Avantgarde: Kunst und Kunstpolitik im Nationalsozialismus [Gebundene Ausgabe] Uwe Fleckner (Herausgeber) Schriften der Forschungsstelle "Entartete Kunst"; #1 Angriff auf die Avantgarde

      Oldenbourg Wissenschaftsverlag Akademie Verlag Berlin. Das vielschichtige Thema nationalsozialistischer Kunstpolitik und die bereits in den zwanziger Jahren einsetzende Diffamierung der Moderne gehören zu einem schmerzlichen Kapitel der deutschen Kunstgeschichte, das noch immer nicht hinreichend aufgearbeitet worden ist. Aus diesem Grunde wurde an der Freien Universität Berlin sowie an der Universität Hamburg eine "Forschungsstelle ‚Entartete Kunst'" eingerichtet, die sich insbesondere mit der gleichnamigen Beschlagnahmeaktion und der seit 1937 veranstalteten Wanderausstellung beschäftigt und nun ihren ersten Band mit aktuellen Forschungsergebnissen zur deutschen Kunstpolitik der dreißiger und vierziger Jahre vorlegt. Die Beiträge befassen sich mit den Protagonisten nationalsozialistischer Kulturpolitik, mit Fragen von Verfemung, Präsentation und Verwertung "entarteter" Kunst sowie mit den unterschiedlichen Rezeptionsformen moderner Kunst im "Dritten Reich". Autor: Prof. Dr. Uwe Fleckner ist Professor für Kunstgeschichte an der Universität Hamburg und leitet das Warburg-Haus in Hamburg. Besprechung / Review zu "Angriff auf die Avantgarde": "Die neue Schriftenreihe muss mit dem nun vorliegenden ersten Band aufgrund des von NachwuchswissenschaftlerInnen neu recherchierten Materials zur wissenschaftlichen Standardliteratur zu Kunst und Kulturpolitik im Nationalsozialismus gezählt werden. Hier wird einerseits historische Aufklärungsarbeit und andererseits Grundlagenforschung geleistet, und das in einem Bereich, über den man doch schon so viel zu wissen meinte." Olaf Peters in: sehepunkte, 7 (2007), Nr.12 "Das Spektrum dieses Bandes führt von den ideologischen Anfeindungen, denen sich die Künstler der Moderne spätestens seit 1933 ausgesetzt sahen [] bis zur Rekonstruktion der bisher weitgehend vernachlässigten Ausgangssituation der Wanderausstellung "Entartete Kunst" in Berlin, von der Analyse der legendären Fischer-Auktion in Luzern 1939 bis zur vielschichtigen Rezeptionsgeschichte von Franz Marc im Dritten Reich. [] Das Verdienst dieser Publikation besteht nicht nur in den informativen Textbeiträgen, sondern ebenso in ergänzenden Verzeichnissen und Tabellen sowie in einem reichen Fotomaterial." Franz Zelger in: Neue Zürcher Zeitung, 31. Oktober 2007 "Sei es die Erschließung unbekannter Quellen, sei es die neue Interpretation bekannter Objekte und Ereignisse: Die hier versammelten Forschungsantrengungen bieten handgreiflichen Nutzen. [] Der Band [ist] insgesamt ein großer Gewinn für die Forschung zur Kunst und Kunstpolitik im Nationalsozialismus." Christian Fuhrmeister in: Kunst Chronik, März 2008, Heft 3 "'Angriff auf die Avantgarde' bietet interessierten Lesern viele Einzelheiten und Überraschungen.

Niemand, so lautet die offizielle Botschaft, will den Künstler im nationalsozialistischen Deutschland noch sehen. Doch ist damit das Kapitel "Franz Marc im "Dritten Reich"" abgeschlossen? Es sind die Bilder der blauen Pferde und roten Rehe, die dem Maler nicht erst in unseren Tagen zu einer Popularität verholfen haben, die bislang wohl nur wenigen deutschen Künstlern zuerkannt wurde. Von Marcs Bekanntheitsgrad zeugt bereits die öffentliche Anteilnahme an seinem Soldatentod 1916 vor Verdun. Haben Marc, Kandinsky und ihre Mitstreiter noch vor dem Ersten Weltkrieg mit ihrer Programmschrift der blaue reiter das Publikum mehr irritiert als begeistert, so nimmt zumindest das Ansehen des verstorbenen Franz Marc innerhalb kürzester Zeit zu. Nicht nur sein malerisches Werk, sondern gerade seine schriftliche Hinterlassenschaft, die bald unter dem Titel briefe, aufzeichnungen und aphorismen publiziert wird, zeichnen das vielbeachtete Bild eines nachdenklichen Menschen, aufopfernden Soldaten und erneuerungswilligen Künstlers.3 Allen Anfeindungen gegen die Moderne und dem ausgerufenen Ende des Expressionismus zum Trotz findet Franz Marc seinen festen Platz in der deutschen Kulturlandschaft. Diese weit über Liebhaberkreise hinausreichende Anerkennung teilen auch bekennende Nationalsozialisten. Während Adolf Hitler 1933 auf dem Nürnberger Reichsparteitag vor den "Nichtkönnern und Gauklern" der Moderne warnt, wandelte ausgerechnet sein eigener Berater in Kunstfragen, Heinrich Hoffmann, einst auf den Spuren von Franz Marc.5 Dessen Tochter Henriette von Schirach erinnert sich später: "Vater hatte das Maleratelier Franz Marc abgemietet. Jahrelang hing noch Franz Marcs Briefkasten an der Tür, in hohen Jugendstilbuchstaben stand da sein Name. Seine Lithographiesteine, die er dagelassen hatte, waren mein Spielzeug, die springenden Gazellen darauf sehe ich noch, weiß in sandigem Braungelb." Dennoch untergraben die reaktionären Kräfte seit der "Machtergreifung" die moderne Kunst, die ihren ohnehin vagen gesellschaftlichen Halt zusehends verliert. Ihre Befürworter, Museumsdirektoren, Kunstkritiker oder die Künstler selbst, werden systematisch ihrer beruflichen Existenz beraubt und die künstlerischen Erzeugnisse dem Blick der

Second (expanded) edition of a collection of 44 numbered songs, each devoted to a different realm in the British Empire, first published to celebrate Queen Victoria's assumption of the title Empress of India on 1 January 1877. Tagore wrote the verses in Sanskrit and adapted the music from national songs of the various realms. Each song appears on the versos set in Devanagri type with the music in a pioneering Indian notation (explained in the 6-page "Elementary rules for the Hindu musical notation"), and on the facing recto transcribed in roman type with the music in the Western notation. Sourindro Mohun Tagore (1840-1914) came from one of the leading artistic families in Calcutta. Well versed in traditional Indian music from his youth, he became a patron of Bengali and Hindu music but also studied Western music and became an internationally known musicologist. Tagore promoted and further developed new Indian musical notation systems introduced by Kshetra Mohan Goswami.In fine condition. The binding in very good condition, with only minor wear, mostly at the extremities. A fascinating work, especially interesting for its pioneering Indian musical notation and its images of Indian music instruments, produced in Calcutta.

        Oldenbourg Geschichte Lehrbuch Gesamtausgabe Jubiläumsausgabe / 4Bde: Antike / Mittelalter / Frühe Neuzeit / Neuste Zeit (Gebundene Ausgabe) von Eckhard Wirbelauer (Autor), Matthias Meinhardt (Autor), Andreas Ranft Eine Einladung in die Geschichte! Oldenbourg Geschichte Lehrbuch - kurz OGL - ist ein neuartiger Wegbegleiter durch das Geschichtsstudium. Jeder einzelne Band behandelt eine der großen Epochen der GeschichteAntike, Mittelalter, Frühe Neuzeit, Neueste Geschichte. Lerneffekt und LeselustOGL gibt den für ein erfolgreiches Studium entscheidenden Überblick über die jeweilige Epoche und macht die wichtigsten Ansätze der Forschung zugänglich. Alle Beiträge funktionieren als abgeschlossene Lerneinheiten. Querverweise stellen die Verbindungen her. Abbildungen, Graphiken und Karten veranschaulichen einzelne Aspekte und ergänzen ideal jede Unterrichtseinheit. Über den Autor Interview mit Dr. Anette Völker-Rasor Der Band ist mehr als eine klassische Einführung in die Frühe Neuzeit. Sie stellen ganz unterschiedliche Zugänge zum Thema vorDie Verortung der Epoche, Ansätze einzelner Subdisziplinen, methodische Varianten und eine Forschungsgeschichte. Wie würden Sie das Konzept des Werkes charakterisieren? Leitfrage bei der Entwicklung des Projekts Oldenbourg Geschichte Lehrbuchs (OGL) war von Anfang an"Was brauchen die Studierenden heute?" Ich hatte gerade anderthalb Jahre konzentrierter Arbeit in einer Kommission zur Reform des Grundstudiums an der LMU München hinter mir, als ich zu dem Verlagsprojekt dazukam. Dank der intensiven Diskussionen mit Studierenden und Lehrenden kam ich zu dem Schluss, dass chronologische, systematische, methodische und institutionsbezogene Aspekte bei der ersten Annäherung an eine Epoche bis zu diesem Zeitpunkt kaum zwischen zwei Buchdeckeln zu finden waren - schon gar nicht in einer alle Epochen abdeckenden Grunddarstellung. Ausgehend davon entwickelten wir das Grundkonzept, das für alle vier Teilbände der OGL einheitlich ist. Es bekennt sich zu einer europäischen Perspektive, behält dabei aber den weltgeschichtlichen Horizont im Blick. Eine Besonderheit des Bandes sind die "Techniken"drei ausführliche Methodenabschnitte zur Quellenarbeit, zum "Lesen der Geschichte" und der Präsentation von Themen. Haben Sie die Erfahrung gemacht, dass Studierenden eine solche Orientierung oft fehlt? Als ebenso verbindlich wie die drei oben genannten vier Grundblöcke wurden von Anfang an die zwischen sie eingeschobenen Technik-Abschnitte festgelegt. Mit den Herausgebern der anderen Bände gab es lange, aber immer fruchtbare Diskussionen über den Gesamtaufbau des OGL, letztlich bestätigte ihre Zustimmung immer wieder neu die Tragfähigkeit des Konzepts. Wirklich kontrovers verliefen dabei lediglich die Gespräche über die Technik-Abschnitte. Wenn anfänglich die Skepsis bestand, man würde hier vielleicht sehr allgemein werden, dann stand am Ende doch in der Herausgeber- wie auch in der Autorengemeinschaft das Bekenntnis zu einem durchaus auch an den Nöten der Praxis orientierten Werk. Zu Ihrer FrageJa, solch eine Orientierung fehlt den Studierenden leider oft. Schon bei der reinen Schreibkunst mangelt es den angehenden Geisteswissenschaftlern. Manch einer hat vor dem Abitur schon eine umfangreiche Facharbeit angefertigt. Doch immer steht das Inhaltliche im Vordergrund, das Handwerk bleibt zu oft den autodidaktischen Versuchen überlassen. Spätestens im Studium ist hier Hilfestellung nötig. Dankbar dürften Studierende auch für den didaktischen Aufbau sein, mit abgesetzten Zeittafeln, Stimmen aus der Forschung, Biografien, Abbildungen. Welchen Stellenwert hat nach Ihrer Erfahrung der "sinnliche" Einstieg in eine andere Zeit? Wer Geschichte studiert, bringt von Beginn an ein Interesse an der Sache mit. Insofern bedürfte es hier nicht des sinnlichen, will heißen, appetitanregenden Einstiegs. Die neben dem Lerneffekt hiermit aber dennoch angestrebte Leselust ist mehr den heutigen Lese- und Sehgewohnheiten geschuldet, die sich nicht mehr allein an Büchern, sondern auch an Medien wie dem Internet ausbilden. So wurden von Anfang an die oben genannten Beigaben mit in das Konzept aufgenommen, gewissermaßen als wahrnehmungsästhetischer Aspekt desselben. Dasselbe gilt für die Querverweise, die sich am Rand des Haupttextes finden und lexikonartig auf die Behandlung des angemerkten Punktes in anderen Zusammenhängen im Buch verweisen. Empfehlen Sie das textchronologische Arbeiten mit dem Band, oder stehen die vier Teile für sich und können unabhängig voneinander gelesen werden? Jedes Kapitel bildet eine in sich abgeschlossene Einheit, ebenso wie jeder Block des Einzelbandes und jedes Buch der Reihe. Der Erkenntnisgewinn bemisst sich sogar weniger nach der Reihenfolge des Gelesenen als nach der Gleichzeitigkeit des Aufgenommenen. So gehört es etwa zum Lesen der Geschichte nicht nur, ein Thema in seinem zeitlichen Kontext kennenzulernen, sondern auch, bereits die Setzung zeitlicher Grenzen als eine Form des Lesens zu begreifen. Man lernt dies bei paralleler Lektüre der jeweils ersten Technik-Abschnitte der Bände zur "Frühen Neuzeit" und zur "Neuesten Zeit". Oder man vergleicht im jeweils dritten Block der Bücher, welche Schlüsselbegriffe und Konzepte für die Antike relevant sind, welche für die Frühe Neuzeit usw. "Unabhängig im Verbund lesen", so würde ich es nennen. Die "Frühe Neuzeit" ist für den Studienbeginn konzipiert, wendet sich aber auch an Dozenten, die Veranstaltungen im Grundstudium anbieten. Welchen Gewinn können speziell Letztere aus dem Band ziehen? Diejenigen, die Geschichte lehren, werden hier zwar auf den neuesten Stand der Forschung gebracht, finden aber nicht grundsätzlich neue Themen vor. Neu ist eher die Aufbereitung, und diese mag die Lehrenden dazu anregen, selbst mit neuen Formen der Darbietung des Stoffes zu experimentieren. Unter den Vorgaben des Bologna-Prozesses und mit der Einführung der neuen Studienabschlüsse wird die ehemals breit angelegte Fachkenntnis immer stärker portioniert werden müssen. Die Herausforderung für die Zukunft besteht meines Erachtens darin, bei aller Zerlegung - und auch der Notwendigkeit der Kreditierung - Darreichungs- und Verarbeitungsformen zu ersinnen, die gleichsam ein Denken im Netz der Wissensinseln fördern. Für die einzelnen Kapitel sind zahlreiche Fachautoren tätig geworden. Nach welchen Kriterien wurden die Themen der Kapitel ausgewählt, nach welchen die Autoren? Nachdem jeder Herausgeber auf das Grobkonzept des OGL nicht nur festgelegt war, sondern dieses auch gemäß den eigenen Erfahrungen als sinnvoll ansah, war er frei in der Auslegung der Vorgaben und damit in der Gestaltung der Blöcke und Technik-Abschnitte. Zwar wurde sein Feinkonzept dann nochmals mit dem Verlag diskutiert, doch diente dies mehr der Absicherung denn einer gestalterischen Einflussnahme. In gleicher Weise bestand Freiheit in der Wahl der Autoren. Für den Verlag bei der Wahl der Herausgeber wie für die Herausgeber bei der Wahl der Autoren kann man wohl das Zusammenspiel von Kompetenz und Vertrauen als wesentliches Merkmal der Entstehungsgeschichte des OGL bezeichnen. Dass dabei so selbstständig wie transparent gearbeitet wurde, macht die besondere Atmosphäre aus, in der doch immerhin rund 200 Leute in den letzten neun Jahren an dem Projekt mitwirkten.

Twelve volumes, each with cloth-covered boards and title stamped in white on cover; no dust jacket as issued. Photographs by Paul Graham. The set encompasses the following titles Pittsburgh, 2004; New York & North Dakota, 2005; California, 2005-2006; Austin, Texas, 2006; Washington and South Broad, New Orleans, 2004-2006; Las Vegas & San Francisco, 2005; Everett Avenue, Chelsea, Boston 26th August 2006; Camarro, Louisiana, 2005; New England, 2006; Chicago, San Francisco, Minneapolis, New Orleans, 2005-2006; Louisiana, 2005; Texas & North Dakota, 2005. 376 total pages, with 167 four-color plates beautifully printed in Germany by Steidl. Each volume 12-3/4 x 9-5/8 inches. This first edition was limited to 1000 copies.[Cited in Martin Parr and Gerry Badger, The Photobook: A History, Volume III. (London and New York: Phaidon, 2014)]. Near Fine in publisher's packaging (minor bumps to corners, not affecting text block). From the publisher: "Inspired by Chekhov's short stories, Paul Graham's a shimmer of possibility comprises 12 individual books, each volume a photographic short story of everyday life in today's America. Most of these books contain small sequences of images, such as a man smoking a cigarette while he waits for a bus in Las Vegas, or a walk down a street in Boston on an autumn afternoon. Often two, three or four sequences intertwine in a single book, like separate but related lives co-existing in suburban America. Sometimes the quiet narrative breaks unexpectedly into a sublime moment - while a couple carry their shopping home in Texas a small child dances with a plastic bag in a garden; as a man cuts the grass in Pittsburgh it begins to rain and the low sun breaks through to illuminate every raindrop. These filmic haikus avoid the forceful summation we usually find in photography, shunning any tidy packaging of the world into perfect images. Instead, life simply flows around and past us while we stand and stare, quietly astonished by its beauty and grace. Whilst the twelve books are all an identical size, they vary in length from just a single photograph, to 60 pages of images made at one street intersection. The radical form of this multi volume book embraces the unique nature of Graham's work, giving the flow of life precedence over conclusiveness, where nothing much happens, but nothing is foreclosed either, where everything shimmers with possibility."

        Green Blades, from her mound (No. III of X of the special edition); Poems from "Poems of 1912 - 1913" by Thomas Hardy, A selection by Mark Cazalet who also made all the images

      [Monmouthshire]: The Old Stile Press, 2007. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Cazalet, Mark. No. III of X of the special edition, total edition 210, Folio - over 12" to 15" tall, 46 pp., signed by artist. Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) is one of Britain's most influential Victorian novelists and poets; he often wrote of tragic characters struggling against their passions and social circumstances, and was nominated twice for the Nobel Prize in Literature. In addition to being a writer of prose he was a prolific poet; from 1898 until his death in 1928 Hardy published eight volumes of poetry, with about one thousand poems being published in his lifetime. As is often the case, his inspiration came from life; Hardy's wife, Emma, died in November 1912 in the attic room of their house where she had lived estranged from him; their marriage had hardened into an empty shell and Hardy had long been in love with Florence Digdale, whom he married the following year. However, on reading Emma's secret memoirs detailing his cruelty and the breakdown of their marriage, Hardy was hit by an avalanche of grief. He returned to the north Cornish coast of their courtship and spent the rest of 1912 and 1913 producing his most lyrical and abiding collection of poetry. In this lovely version by The Old Stile Press, Mark Cazalet's images act as visual equivalents for the extraordinary insights Hardy found in the depths of his experience, with the sequence of poems arranged to suggest Hardy's gradual reconciliation to guilt and grief, resolving into a dawning sense of acceptance. (N.B., from the web sites of the Old Stile Press, Wikipedia and Poetry Foundation.) ***DESCRIPTION: Bound in yellow ochre cloth with white paper wrapping around from the back to front boards with brown illustration and green lettering, twenty-two full-page black illustrations with various colours, each image is formed from one woodcut and one linocut and were all printed from the original blocks; set in Centaur on Fabriano Tiziano paper, folio size (approximately 13" tall), unpaginated with 23 printed leaves, bound by The Fine Book Bindery in Wellingborough, signed and numbered by artist Mark Cazalet; the special edition was limited to ten copies numbered I - X, this being no.

        Elemente [ARTIST BOOK - Caroline Saltzwedel]; Zwolf Farbradierungen [Twelve Etchings]

      Hirundo Press, Hamburg 2007 - No. 4 of 10 bound sets, total edition 25 (plus 2 Artist's Proof and 1 HC), Elephant Folio - over 15" to 23" tall, with 12 etchings, each numbered and signed by the artist, text in German. Caroline Saltzwedel, born in England, has lived in Hamburg since 1995 as a graphic artist and painter; in 1998 she founded the Hirundo Press for artists' books in small editions. Her works are in numerous public and private collections including the Bodleian Library, and are seldom available to private collectors who are not on the Hirundo Press subscription list. Caroline's works are often paired with original, new works of poetry or are based on mythological or other classical figures; this inspired by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832). As Caroline wrote regarding this work, "The Four Elements of ancient mythology have been a timeless source of inspiration to painters and poets alike- not least Goethe, whose West-ostlicher Divan [West-Eastern Divan] is only one work in which their presence is felt. This cycle dedicates three etchings to each of the elements Fire, Water, Air and Earth (the order they appear in German), and is prefaced by the poem 'Allleben' from the Divan. The twelve full-page etchings are each numbered, titled, and signed by the artist in pencil. ***DESCRIPTION: Bound in red linen cloth with three bands of paper inlaid on the front of custom-made crinkle paper by Susanne Krause of Hamburger Buntpapier, title blind-embossed on the spine, all edges uncut, title page with a design that mirrors the front board with three bands of colour (gold and green), the poem directly following (in German), copyright page on the verso of page two of the poem, stating the limitation, this copy being no. 4; Ms. Saltzwedel signed her name in pencil and added below "with best wishes"; the twelve full-page etchings follow, each with its original tissue guard, each of the etchings are numbered "4/25" and are signed by the Artist, each etching is also titled by her, all in pencil. The images are approximately 11.75" by 11.5" on BFK Velin Arches paper that is approximately 15.5" by 17.5"; type is Garamond, hand-set. Edition of 25 copies (plus 2 Artist's Proof copies and 1 Hors-Commerce), of which numbers 1 to 10 are presented as a complete series, hardbound in a slipcase, the case is covered in the same bright red linen cloth with the three bands of crinkled paper on the front. ***CONDITION: All components are fine, as new; all paper is clean and crisp, the colours on the images deep and true, the slipcase strong and sturdy. ***PROVENANCE: From a private collector who acquired this work directly from Ms. Saltzwedel. ***POSTAGE: International customers please note that due to the size of this volume additional postage may apply, please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

Takashi Murakami is a Japanese artist combining the fine and the commercial art worlds. Often categorized alongside artists working within the tradition of Pop Art, such as Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, and Jeff Koons, Murakami's work has achieved a widespread level of fame beyond the art world. His innovative "Superflat" aesthetic—combining classical Japanese art with contemporary Japanese pop culture—has made him one of the most innovative artists working today. He continues to explore the links between traditional printmaking and Japanese styles of comics in post-war society in his highly graphic, vibrantly colored works. Despite its outward playfulness, Murakami's art acts as a cultural critique with subversive undertones hidden in its imagery. Born on February 1, 1962 in Tokyo, Japan, where he currently lives and works, Murakami has embraced commerce through the founding Kaikai Kiki Co., Ltd., an artist management agency and studio. With his popular collaboration with the fashion label Louis Vuitton, Murakami has established himself as a pioneer of promoting art as a brand. His work has been the subject of numerous exhibitions around the world, include those held at the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, Gagosian Gallery in London, the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, and the Versailles Palace.
