        The Border Trilogy: All the Pretty Horses; The Crossing; Cities of the Plain.

      Everyman's Library, New York 2008 - First edition, later printing. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Cormac McCarthy on the half title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. McCarthy's award-winning and best-selling trio of novels, The Border Trilogy, constitutes a genuine American epic. The young men in these novels come of age on Southwestern ranches in the 1930's, while across the border, Mexico beckons them with its desolate beauty and the cruel promise of a place where dreams are paid for in blood. The San Francisco Chronicle calls the trilogy "An American classic to stand with the finest literary achievements of the century" and the Chicago Tribune exclaimed, "Make a place on your bookshelf. If you love classic narrative, quest stories, adventure stories of high order transformed by one of the lapidary masters of contemporary American fiction, now is your hour of triumph."

        Il libro d'Ore Durazzo. [L'opera manca del commentario Originale].

      Panini - Codici Miniati 2008 - Edizione facsimile del codice m.r. C.f. Arm. I della Biblioteca Civica Berio, di 980 per la diffusione mondiale. Modena, 2008; ril. in velluto di seta, pp. 336, ill. col., cm 15,5x21,5. (La Miniatura). Il Libro d'Ore Durazzo, così chiamato dal nome del suo ultimo proprietario, è un piccolo capolavoro del pittore e miniatore Francesco Marmitta. Un'opera sorprendente che si distingue da ogni altro codice devozionale a uso privato per due peculiari caratteristiche: l'impiego della pergamena purpurea e la crisografia, cioè la scrittura a lettere d'oro, qui tracciata da un maestro dell'arte calligrafica, Pietro Antonio Sallando, docente presso l'Università di Bologna. L'orefice della pagina miniata Artista splendido e sontuoso, dotato anche come orafo e intagliatore, il parmense Francesco Marmitta (1462/1466 ca. 1505) profuse le sue capacità in opere superbe tra cui, oltre al Libro d'Ore Durazzo, il bellissimo Messale di Domenico della Rovere del Museo Civico di Torino. Nelle pagine dei suoi capolavori, oltre a una delicata sensibilità di tocco e a spiccate doti paesistiche, sfoggiò la sua predilezione per gemme, medaglie e cammei, miniati con squisita fattura. Una meravigliosa decorazione La meditata ripresa della tradizione classica, evidente nell'uso della porpora e delle lettere d'oro, è confermata dal lessico ornamentale costituito da panoplie,medaglie, cammei e bucrani,mentre il linguaggio pittorico del Calendario e degli Uffici dellaVergine rivela un aggiornamento sulle ultime acquisizioni della cultura figurativa bolognese, con particolare attenzione ad Amico Aspertini. La raffinata legatura L'elegante ed elaborata legatura in argento cesellato e sbalzato con parti dorate, su fondo in velluto purpureo è coeva al codice, con cui condivide il gusto della decorazione. Splendida la profusione di motivi classicheggianti a palmette, racemi di acanto, spighe, grappoli d'uva, vasi, mascheroni, scarabei e bucrani. Sui fermagli argentei, due piccoli rubini.

        Saving His Life

      Chicago: Sherwin Beach Press, 2008. Hardcover. Fine. Hardcover. Number 18 of 50 copies. Signed by the author and the bookmakers. With numerous family photographs provided by Nina Sandlin. Lee Sandlin (1956-2014) was an award winning journalist and essayist. This is his story of the extraordinary life and bewildering illness of Sandlin's father-in-law, Russian immigrant Nick Cherniavsky (1924-2007), who grew up in China. "The defining event of Nick's life happened before he was born. The Russian Revolution was one of those vast historical calamities that most Americans have been spared: it was a time when people who never thought of themselves as political, who never thought they'd have to choose sides about anything, were forced to make political choices that could easily cost them their homes, their families, and their lives. This was how it was for Nick's parents." This beautiful book iwas designed by Martha Chiplis, set in Monotype Ehrhardt by Winifred and Michael Bixler, and printed by Martha Chiplis on handmade Twinrocker Taupe paper. Photoetchings from family photographs are printed on Hosho, inset into the book in debossed panels. A map of Nick's lifetime of travel, drawn by Deborah Reade, serves as the front endpaper. Trisha Hammer has designed and executed a hidden crossed-structure binding in Nigerian goatskin with endpapers of Japanese silk, housed in a silk drawstring bag. An impressive production In fine condition. 9 1/2 x 11 x 2 inches. 100 pages. PRI/072115.

        Celestial Navigation

      Glenview, Illinois:: Karen Hanmer,, 2008.. Edition of 30. 6.75 x 5.75 x .5" closed, 17 x .5 x 23" open; 32 pages. Hinged triangular structure with star fields printed on deep blue. Pigment inkjet prints. Max Yela, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee: "The narrative evokes a deep sense of loss and longing; reaching to the stars as a way of recapturing the memory of the long-departed: 'Like ancient navigators, I look to the sky to find my way back to you.' … The diamond-shaped page-spread offers text printed against a star field on the left, mirrored by a 19th-century star chart on the right. The one-point rhythm of each page spread progresses steadily, and is resolved by a final spread of uniform space in which one can almost discern the presence of the beloved. The book has three possible spaceways: the textual narrative occupying one path, and the other two taken up with lists of astronomical instruments - particularly instruments of navigation - juxtaposed against 17th-century images of astrolabes, sextants, telescopes, and the like.

        Jean Prouvé 2 voll.

      Galerie Patrick Seguin 2008 La Galleria Patrick Seguin associata alla Sonnabend Gallery ci offre il piacere della scoperta, in una scatola di lusso e splendidamente illustrato, dei mobili del grande architetto e designer Jean Prouvé. (P - D1) Today the oeuvre of French architect and designer Jean Prouvé is considered essential to the history of twentieth century design. Prouvé?s furniture designs were determined by the interior spaces the pieces would inhabit, and they developed in tandem with the Modernist principles of the art of living and harmonious habitat that were so characteristic of the time. This exquisitely produced and comprehensive volume, which was put together by Paris? Galerie Patrick Seguin and New York?s Sonnabend Gallery - - where Prouvé was the subject of a critically - acclaimed 2003 solo exhibition - - fills a hole in the existing scholarship, most of which focuses on Prouvé?s architecture. It includes a collection of interviews with collectors and design professionals, a detailed biography of Prouvé by his daughter, Catherine Prouvé, and essays by design historian Raymond Guidot and architecture historian Catherine Coley. Jean Prouvé was born in Paris in 1901. He opened his workshop in Nancy in 1923 and began producing furniture the following year. Immediately successful, Prouvé is best known for his innovative applications of new materials, with which he created extremely influential buildings and furniture - - including several gas stations for Shell and Mobile. Working well past retirement, he died in Nancy in 1984. Autore / i Raymond Guidot, Jean Prouve, Catherine Prouve e altri Editore Galerie Patrick Seguin Luogo Paris Anno 2008 Pagine 648 Misura 31x26 (cm) Illustrazioni oltre 700 ill. a colori e b / n - over 700 color and b / w ills Legatura rilegato - Hardback Conservazione usato ottimo, copia priva di cofanetto - used very good, without slipcase Lingua inglese / francese - English / French

        White Line No 1. Photos. Digital graphic Wolfgang Schultheiß. Text John Wood. Deutsch - Englisch.

      Vevais, Edition Galerie Vevais, 2008.. Einmalige numerierte Auflage von 30 Exemplaren 80 Seiten mit durchgehend schwarz/weiss-Abbildungen. 4°, gebundene Ausgabe, geprägtes weißes Leinen im Schuber.. das Buch noch original eingeschweißt vom Verlag, eines von 30 Exemplaren der Vorzugsausgabe mit einem signierter und nummerierter Silbergelatine-Abzug ca. 20 x 30 cm von Thomas Kartsen. Dies ist das Exemplar 19/30. Thomas Karsten (* 1958 in Eisenach) ist ein berühmter deutscher Fotograf. Das freche und sehr explizite Buch von Thomas Karsten wagt den ewigen kunst- und kulturgeschichtlichen Spagat zwischen Kunst und Pornografie. Der amerikanische Professor für Geschichte der Fotografie und bekannte Poet John Wood beleuchtet das Thema in seinem Vorwort bezogen auf eine sich globalisierende und scheinbar stark freier werdende Gesellschaft. Karstens Können macht deutlich, dass ein Sujet wie Pornografie durch Poesie und Gefühl im gesellschaftlichen Kontext gebrochen werden kann. "... Dabei fungiert erotische Kunst zwar als Aphrodisiakum, aber niemals als Ersatz für Sex selbst, genausowenig wie William Blakes Prophetische Bücher ein Ersatz für eigene spirituelle Erfahrungen sind." (aus dem Vorwort) Dieser wunderschön gemachten Vorzugsausgabe ist ein signierter Originalabzug des Künstlers beigelegt: eine Rarität!

        Die Legende vom Club: Die Geschichte des 1. FC Nürnberg (Grosse Traditionsvereine): Die Geschichte des 1. FC Nürnberg von Christoph Bausenwein (Autor), Bernd Siegler (Autor), Harald Kaiser (Autor)

      Die Werkstatt, 2008. Auflage: Veränd. Neuaufl. (15. September 2008). Hardcover. Good.  24,4 x 18 x 4 cm. Von den Erfolgen des 1. FC Nürnberg wird in diesem Buch berichtet, aber auch von den historischen Begebenheiten und Geschichten drumherum: Vom charakteristischen Spielstil, den die Nürnberger prägten, von den spannungsgeladenen Derbys mit den Rivalen aus Fürth und München, vom Jubel der Fans, von den nie enden wollenden Skandalen. Die ganz großen, die glorreichen Zeiten lassen sich nicht zurückholen. Aber die neueste Entwicklung gibt wieder Hoffnung, daß in Zukunft vielleicht doch noch das eine oder andere Ruhmesblatt der an Höhepunkten so reichen Clubgeschichte hinzugefügt werden kann. Spätestens bis zum Jahr 2000, seinem 100jährigen Geburtstag, soll der Club wieder dort spielen, wo er hingehört: in der 1. Liga. So schnell wird der 1. FCN seine 10. Deutsche Meisterschaft wohl nicht erringen, aber trotzdem darf jetzt wieder intensiver von ihr geträumt werden. Diesem Traum sei unser Buch gewidmet.Die Legende des Clubs begann nach dem 1. Weltkrieg, als er mit fünf Meisterschaften zum berühmtesten Verein Deutschland wurde. Legende sind die Duelle mit Schalke in den dreißiger Jahren und die Triumphe der Elf um Max Morlock nach 1945. Heute kämpft der Verein um eine Platz im Profifußball, doch eine riesige Schar unverwüstlicher Fans träumt von der Rückkehr glorreicher Zeiten.Dieses sorgsam recherchierte Buch berichtet von den sportlichen Entwicklung des Clubs, aber auch von den Geschichten rund ums Spielfeld und von den Menschen, die den Verein hochbrachten, die ihn liebten oder ihn (fast) kaputtmachten. Mit 100 Spielerporträts und einem ausführlichen statistischen Anhang.Christoph Bausenwein veröffentlichte zahlreiche hoch gelobte Fußballbücher wie »Geheimnis Fußball« oder »Die letzten Männer«. Seine Fußball-Liebe aber gehört dem »Club«, über den er mehrfach publizierte. Bernd Siegler, freier Journalist aus Nürnberg, verfasste zusammen mit Christoph Bausenwein und Harald Kaiser u.a. die Festschrift »Der Club - 100 Jahre Fußball« (1999) sowie »das Club-Lexikon« (2003). Harald Kaiser ist Redakteur des »kicker« und berichtete viele Jahre über den Nürnberger Verein. Von den Erfolgen des 1.

        Lecons de Livre pour Calyban or Prosper's Parisian Printing Parade. Bon mots, bagatelles, & tableaux de l'imprimerie. Also a sometime type specimen & leaf book. As Told to an American. Pochoir by Jef Aerosol

      Cat's Head Press [Caliban Press], St-Zotique, Quebec [Canton, NY] 2008 - One of 114 copies, all on various papers including Rives and Arches, vintage Barcham Green handmade, St-Armand handmade from Montreal, Quebec, Kochi from Japan and handmade lokta from Nepal, each signed by the author / printer. Mark McMurray has created his own look at printing history in Paris, with a dark back story of immigrant life in the "City of Light." Page size: 8-1/4 x 12 inches; 48pp. Bound: flexible quarter dark grey vellum binding by Velma Bolyard from Pergamena Parchment, Montgomery, NY and St-Armand handmade grey papers, label printed "Lessons" in lavender on white paper inserted into front cover, publisher's slipcase. Issued with a separate sheet of "Lecons Notes" which explain some of the images and text. From Melissa Schulenberg's portrait of Nancy Cunard (original relief print) to figures from the 1493 "Liber chronicarum" to woodcuts to found images, this tour of Paris delights. The text consists of fourteen lessons in English and French concerning the Arts of the Book and sundry other old and new topics. Collected from found and fabricated texts by the two main semi-fictional characters, Cal & Prosper, who are visiting Paris to learn the art of printing. This, then, is also a type specimen and a leaf book. It recalls printers past and present who have produced books in Paris. It is printed in several colors on cylinder and hand presses from foundry, monotype, photopolymer & wood types set by hand, machine composition, and computer. The primary face is Garamond. Additional faces include Fournier, Caslon, Nicholas Cochin and others. Monotype composition by Michael Bixler; photopolymer plates by Boxcar Press. The original signed pochoir by Jef Aerosol of Samuel Beckett is a stunner. The small "gold" man (cut-out paper doll) in the Treizieme Lecon "Who's that?" is collaged on a page of Arab text opposite a map of the Quartier Latin with text in French and English guessing at his identity - or commenting on it.
