Letter P of 26 lettered copies, SIGNED by Christopher Wool and Richard Hell.

(There were 1576 copies in total: 1500 of the trade edition in paperback, 50 numbered copies in hardcover, and 26 lettered copies such as this one.) Christopher Wool's word images are among the most sought after pieces in contemporary art.

A Fine copy of this Booker Listed masterpiece in unread pristine condition. Winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction 2009. First UK Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, including the US. This edition now very scarce. O'Neill has Naipaul's genius for creating unforced ideological connections. And he knows perfectly well that when, on the last pages of his novel, he writes about a memory of Manhattan's skyline and the 'extraordinary promise in what we saw', he is hovering, like some novelistic Google Earther, over the sentence grids and prose plateaus of the last page of 'The Great Gatsby'

        Sea of Poppies *** SIGNED ***

      John Murray, 2008. 1st printing 1st. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Signed by Author. SIGNED by the author to title page. A Fine copy in likewise Fine dustwrapper. Unread condition.Book 1 of the IBIS trilogy, shortlisted for the Booker prize 2008. We also have available Signed and dated UK Firsts of Book 2 of this trilogy, "River of Smoke" - see out listings. Synopsis: At the heart of this epic saga, set just before the Opium Wars, is an old slaving-ship, The Ibis. Its destiny is a tumultuous voyage across the Indian Ocean, its crew a motley array of sailors and stowaways, coolies and convicts. In a time of colonial upheaval, fate has thrown together a truly diverse cast of Indians and Westerners, from a bankrupt Raja to a widowed villager, from an evangelical English opium trader to a mulatto American freedman. As their old family ties are washed away they, like their historical counterparts, come to view themselves as jahaj-bhais or ship-brothers. An unlikely dynasty is born, which will span continents, races and generations. The vast sweep of this historical adventure spans the lush poppy fields of the Ganges, the rolling high seas, and the exotic backstreets of China. But it is the panorama of characters, whose diaspora encapsulates the vexed colonial history of the East itself, which makes Sea of Poppies so breathtakingly alive - a masterpiece from one of the world's finest novelists.

        STEINE". Eine Sammlung von 20 Original- Graphit Zeichnungen.

      2008 - 2008. je 21 x 29,7 cm, Auf Zeichenpapier. Ungerahmt. ".Diese Steine werden, noch am Strand (von Rügen), direkt aufs Papier gelegt und ihre Gestalt mit dem Graphitstift umrissen - ein Vorgang, mit dem abstrahiert wird. Die Dreidimensionalität des Objekts verwandelt sich in Zweidimensionalität, Masse wird auf ihre Kontur reduziert, Schweres ganz leicht. Die durch den Stein bedingte, fest vorgegebene Linie bedeutet Material, das in einem zweiten Schritt frei gehandhabt werden kann. Der Stein - für eine Zeichnung wird immer derselbe verwendet - wird mehrfach umrissen, dabei gedreht und gewendet oder aber in einer Position belassen. So entstehen Liniengefüge unterschiedlicher Dichte, die sich wiederum zu neuen Gebilden formieren und die ursprüngliche Kontur mal mehr, mal weniger deutlich hervortreten lassen. Dr. Agnes Matthias, Leiterin der Grafischen Sammlung am Kunstforum Ostdeutsche Galerie Regensburg. Sechs einzelne Motive sind auf Anfrage lieferbar, für je EUR 380,- Sprache: Deutsch

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED (ALS) to his wife

      New York, March 1908. Letter. Folds from mailing, still about Fine, with envelope. A three-page AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED as "Pearl" (Grey was born Pearl Zane Gray) to his wife "Dolly" on three sheets of illustrated New Grand Hotel stationery with envelope postmarked March 1908. Grey discusses his rotten position: "I'm afraid I can't have Outing publish my book until everybody's got good and ready to let me.... And I, like an idiot signed that paper, which legally gives them the right to my photographs. Why didn't you or Murphy see that? If they don't choose to use the story & pictures I can't get the book published at all. It's most damnably sickening. I don't know what to do.... For a measly little hundred dollars I have about queered my chances.... Murphy says it will work out allright [sic]. I hope so, but tonight I can't see anything but black. Will be on the mountain tomorrow." Zane Grey decided to become a writer just five years before this letter when he wrote a fishing story that appeared in RECREATION MAGAZINE. Outing published Grey's third book, THE LAST OF THE PLAINSMEN, in 1908 complete with Grey's photographs. It was based on a trip Grey made out West with Col. "Buffalo" Jones in 1907. This trip was the turning point in Grey's life, but his book about Jones and his experiences in the Grand Canyon was not successful. It would be a few more years before Grey became a success with RIDERS OF THE PURPLE SAGE. An outstanding early letter revealing the torment of a struggling writer.

        Gone Away World

      Heinemann, 2008. 1st printing 1st. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Signed by Author. SIGNED and lined by the author on title page. Fine copy in Mint unread condition. Synopsis: The Jorgmund Pipe is the backbone of the world, and it's on fire. Gonzo Lubitsch, professional hero and troubleshooter, is hired to put it out - but there's more to the fire, and the Pipe itself, than meets the eye. The job will take Gonzo and his best friend, our narrator, back to their own beginnings and into the dark heart of the Jorgmund Company itself. From rural childhood in Cricklewood Cove to military service in a bewildering foreign war; from Jarndice University to the sawdust of the Nameless Bar; their story is the story of the Gone-Away World. It is the history of a friendship stretched beyond its limits; a tale of love and loss; of ninjas, pirates, politics and strange places. Equal parts raucous adventure, comic odyssey, geek nirvana, and cool epic, this is The Gone-Away World.

There was no corpse, no witnesses, no evidence. But her uncle, Henrik, is convinced that she was murdered by someone in her own family - the deeply dysfunctional Vanger clan. Disgraced journalist Mikael Blomqvist is hired to investigate, but when he links Harriet's disappearance to a string of gruesome murders from forty years ago, he needs a competent assistant - and he gets one: computer hacker Lisbeth Salander - a tattoed, truculent, angry girl who rides a motorbike like a Hell's Angel and handles makeshift weapons with the skill born of remorseless rage. This unlikely pair form a fragile bond as they delve into the sinister past of this island-bound, tightly-knit family. But the Vangers are a secretive lot, and Mikael and Lisbeth are about to find out just how far they're prepared to go to protect themselves - and each other. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Synopsis: Moving to remote Shetland has been unsettling enough for consultant surgeon Tora Hamilton; even before the gruesome discovery she makes one rain-drenched Sunday afternoon .Deep in the peat soil of her field she is shocked to find the perfectly preserved body of a young woman, a gaping hole in her chest where her heart has been brutally removed. Three rune marks etched into the woman&#39;s skin bear an eerie resemblance to carvings Tora has seen all over the islands: in homes she has visited, even around a fireplace in her own cellar. As she uncovers disturbing links to an ancient Shetland legend, the unfriendly detective, her smooth-talking boss and even her own husband are at pains to persuade her to leave well alone. Is their concern genuine? Perhaps, for when terrifying threats start rolling in like the cold island mists it seems someone wants Tora out of the picture, once and for all.

        IL LIBRO D&#39;ORE DI BONAPARTE GHISLIERI. [THE HOURS OF BONAPARTE GHISLIERI]

      Modena: Franco Cosimo Panini, 2008. No. 201 OF 980 COPIES . Hardcover. The Facsimile of a Lovely Humanist Book of HoursIn a Binding with Riotous Decoration. 216 x 152 mm (8 1/2 x 6"). 136 leaves (in the facsimile). Three volumes (including two volumes of commentary, one in German and one in Italian). No. 201 OF 980 COPIES. SUMPTUOUS RED MOROCCO, central panel of each cover with thin open-work black leather in an ornate vine pattern laid over blue and gold silk, creating a stained glass effect, the leatherwork incorporating floral circles painted in red and gold, three large medallions arranged down the center of the panel, those at head and tail of red morocco painted in a black, gold, and blue pattern and with a large, round semi-precious stone at the middle, the central medallion comprising a miniature on silk, that on the upper cover of the Archangel Gabriel, that on the lower cover of the Virgin Mary; raised bands, spine diapered in blind, with a single gilt dot at the center of each lozenge; floral silver cornerpieces and two clasps, red morocco doublures framed in silver, doublure panels with intricate decoration in gilt and black, large central medallion of open-work black leather over blue silk with a molded leather profile of Julius Caesar at center, ivory watered silk endleaves, all edges gilt and gauffered. In a padded, silk-lined cream-colored suede box with an enamel medallion on the upper cover. With many decorative initials, elaborate floral extensions and partial borders, a tondo miniature at the foot of each calendar page, seven historiated initials with full borders, and five full-page miniatures, each by a different Italian master. In mint condition. This sophisticated Book of Hours was produced in 1503 at the behest of Bonaparte Ghislieri, a member of an important Bolognese family. In commissioning it, Ghislieri wanted to bring together several of the most famous artists of the period, each of whom was called upon to create a full-page miniature. The intention was to offer a sort of miniature anthology of the best that the Bologna school of illumination could produce at the time. Consequently, we see a succession of works by: Amico Aspertini (Adoration of the Shepherds), Lorenzo Costa (King David and his Lyre), Il Francia (Francesco Raibolini) (Saint Jerome), Matteo da Milano, (Annunciation), and Perugino, (St. Sebastian). This last is the only miniature ever painted by Raphael&#39;s teacher. Bologna was also the home of the scribe, Pierantonio Sallando, who taught grammar at the University of Bologna and was to become a famous professor of writing. The codex passed from the Ghislieris to the Albani family of Urbino, where it is documented in the 18th century; the following century it reached England, where it was purchased by Henry Yates Thompson in 1897. Since 1941 it has been kept in the British Library.

        The Northern Clemency SIGNED

      Fourth Estate, 2008. 1st printing 1st. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Signed by Author. Fine copy in Fine Dustwrapper. Mint unread condition. SIGNED by the author on title page. ********* &#39;Hensher is an anatomist of familial tensions and marshals his large cast of characters deftly. He has an impeccable eye for nuances of character and setting, and the details of Seventies food and decor are lovingly done: the mushroom vol-au-vents, the white wall units with brown smoked glass!an engaging and hugely impressive novel.&#39; The Times &#39;The Northern Clemency - vast, compendious, wearing its ambition like an outsize boutonniere - makes a virtue of its exactness, its recapitulative zeal, its absolute determination to jam everything in and sit unshiftably on the lid.&#39; Independent on Sunday &#39;Hensher has a forensic eye for detail, providing nightmarish glimpses of the everyday!engrossing, amusing and moving.&#39; Independent &#39;An epic novel.&#39; Guardian &#39;Hensher is fascinating good on how social transformation manifests itself in the textures, colours and manners of a culture!extremely funny, but also deeply humane.&#39; The Sunday Times. A remarkable novel!Hensher&#39;s technique of shifting continually from voice to voice, the third-person narrative perceived from the viewpoint of each character in turn, gives a cumulative effect of luminous richness, like a perfect piece of orchestration!but there is something more than brilliant cleverness that makes this novel extraordinary.&#39; Sunday Times &#39;Hensher&#39;s is a bold, impressively sustained attempt to mark a transitional phase in modern Englishness as seen largely from the domestic sphere.&#39; TLS &#39;A beautifully written book!as impressive in its scope as in the effortless artistry of the language. Its characters are well--defined and plausible, while the narrative is leavened with deftly observed humour that gently pokes its lower--middle class protagonists in the ribs.&#39; Scotland on Sunday The Northern Clemency is an immense novel which sweeps through 20 epochal years, showing us that a country can move rapidly into the future but that some individuals often remain shackled to the events of the past. In The Northern Clemency, an early contender for novel of the year, Philip Hensher looks in detail at a small group of people over a generation, and in doing so presents the great drama and inexhaustible wonder of ordinary life. Spectator &#39;The Northern Clemency is a terrific novel - a truly fine achievement.&#39; Cressida Connolly, New Statesman &#39;As with most families, it&#39;s the small private moment that fascinate.&#39; The London Paper &#39;Essential for anyone who wants to be ahead of the game by literary awards season.&#39; Elle &#39;A beautifully written book!as impressive in its scope as in the effortless artistry of the language. Its characters are well-defined and plausible, while the narrative is leavened with deftly observed humour that gently pokes its lower-middle class protagonists in the ribs.&#39; Scotland on Sunday The "state-of-the-nation" novel has made a return in recent years. This is the most interesting and accomplished of them that I&#39;ve come across, precisely because it doesn&#39;t do the usual state-of-the-nation things. Hensher immaculately provides texture and atmosphere.&#39; The Tablet &#39;An epic novel that spans 1974-1996. It&#39;s a laudable undertaking and Hensher is very good at describing a suburban 1970s childhood and adolescence.&#39; Metro, Fiction of the Week &#39;An ambitious portrait of life in the north over three turbulent decades.&#39; Observer &#39;Picks for 2008&#39; &#39;Expansive yet precise, it leads the reader from the minutiae of family life to broad public events with the surest of hands.&#39; Guardian &#39;Picks for 2008&#39; Praise for &#39;The Mulberry Empire&#39;: &#39;It&#39;s when he turns his pen to the more minute matters of the body and heart that Hensher changes from a merely clever writer into a moving one.&#39; Ned Denny, Daily Mail &#39;Hensher is a publisher&#39;s dream. At last, he seems to have returned to the fictional territory of his earliest novel, trusting less to research than to his sharp wit, keen eye and love of London.&#39;

        The Secret Scripture

      Faber and Faber, 2008. 1st printing 1st. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Signed by Author. Fine copy in Fine Dustwrapper. Mint unread condition. Short listed Booker Prize 2008. Winner of the 2009 Costa Book Prize. SIGNED by the author on title page. Scarce as first printing and signed. SYNOPSIS: A subtle study of psychology, religion, family and politics in Ireland.This is not, as the title might suggest, another Da Vinci Code clone. Barry (A Long Long Way, 2005, etc.) writes vigorously and passionately about his native land. The story is told antiphonally, alternating narratives between a secret journal (hidden beneath the floorboard) kept by Roseanne McNulty, a patient in a mental hospital, and the "Commonplace Book" of her psychiatrist Dr. Grene, who&#39;s dealing with serious issues of grief after the death of his wife. Roseanne has always been something of an outsider, her father a cemetery-keeper and rat-catcher but most importantly a Protestant in a land largely hostile to this religious orientation. Although Roseanne remembers a happy childhood, in which she was the proverbial apple of her father&#39;s eye, he becomes involved in the political and military entanglements of Irish political life. When Roseanne grows up, she becomes the wife of Tom McNulty, but through a series of misunderstandings - as well as through the machinations of the grim-faced and soul-destroying priest, Fr. Gaunt - she is as good as accused (though falsely) of adultery with the son of a political rebel. Out of malice toward Protestants as well as out of a misplaced moral absolutism, Fr. Gaunt has her marriage annulled - and, using nymphomania to explain her "condition," has her locked up in the asylum. Dr. Grene gets interested in her story as well as her history, and in tracking down her past he finds a secret that she has kept hidden for many years, a secret that affects them both and that intertwines their families. In a final assessment of Roseanne - after she&#39;s spent decades in the asylum - Dr. Grene determines that she is "blameless." She responds: "&#39;Blameless? I hardly think that is given to any mortal being.&#39;" Indeed, blamelessness is a state no one achieves in this novel.Barry beautifully braids together the convoluted threads of his narrative.
