      Modena: Franco Cosimo Panini, 2008. red velvet binding (silver ferrules, clasp strips and coat of arms), clamshell case. 103755|107025|107629|35852/NE. Illuminated Manuscripts. folio. red velvet binding (silver ferrules, clasp strips and coat of arms), clamshell case. 64 pages, 6 plates. Facsimile with accompanying hardcover commentary. One of 550 copies. The majestic liturgical book known as the Lezionario Farnese, produced in Rome shortly after the mid-sixteenth century for Cardinal Alessandro Farnese, represents a high point for the art of illumination. Given its size the work is of monumental proportions and the wealth of embellishments, we may consider the Lectionary a codex of exceptional merit. Splendid embellishments By commissioning this truly sumptuous work, Alessandro Farnese brought into being a codex which, for hundreds of years, served as one of the Missals used by the Popes and princes of the Church during the solemnities held at the Sistine Chapel. In its splendid full-page illuminations and wonderful gilded frames adorned with putti, masks and floral motifs we note the influences of the grand art of the Renaissance and, in particular, the work of Michelangelo and Raphael. A widely acclaimed illuminator With its impressive embellishments, the Lezionario Farnese represents one of the masterpieces of Giulio Clovio (1498-1578), the most widely acclaimed illuminator of the late sixteenth century. Clovio was praised by the Florentine historian, Giorgio Vasari, in the second edition of his Lives of the Artists, as the Michelangelo in little. Vasari cites the Farnese Book of Hours and the Lectionary as the most important of the works of Clovio, who, after leaving his native Croatia in 1516, achieved great renown as an illuminator. The Neo-Gothic binding The original binding went missing with the arrival of Napoleons troops. The codex was then re-bound in 1809-1810 in a red velvet Neo-Gothic cover of considerable beauty and refinement (the work of the London binders, Benjamin II and James Smith). We may note the wrought and gilded silver ferrules and clasps and, on the front cover, the polychrome porcelain coats of arms of the Towneley family, the last owners of this work. Patronage The Lectionary was a commission from Alessandro Farnese (1520-1589), the grandson of Pope Paul III Farnese (who ordained Alessandro as cardinal at the age of fourteen). In the early 1540s, Clovio entered the service of Cardinal Alessandro Farnese, considered by historians the most important patron and connoisseur of the arts of mid-sixteenth century Rome. Clovio served the cardinal for the rest of his life, and bequeathed his fine collection of codices and artworks to his patron. The Commentary: The work is accompanied by a book with commentary, edited by Jonathan J. Alexander, with writings by Jonathan J. Alexander, Nicholas Barker, Elena Calvillo and Clive Wainwright. Facsimile with accompanying commentary with clamshell box.

        THE HUNGER GAMES, CATCHING FIRE, MOCKINGJAY (All Three First Printings, All Three Hand- Signed By the Author )

      New York: Scholastic, 2008. Collins, Suzanne. THE HUNGER GAMES, CATCHING FIRE, MOCKINGJAY. New York: Scholastic, (2008-2010). First Editions, First Printings (with complete number lines) and all three volumes are as new and unread. THE HUNGER GAMES has been signed, CATCHING FIRE has been inscribed, and most importantly MOCKINGJAY has been hand-signed not just tour-stamped. Suzanne Collins has made a point of not hand-signing copies of Mockingjay except for close friends with the consequence that perfectly matched signed sets such as this are rarely seen in commerce. Housed in a new custom-made maple wood open-end box commissioned especially for this particular set. Despite the hyper-modern nature of this trilogy, the film adaptations (complete with superlative Oscar-winning actress) have put these books in the same iconic category as Harry Potter with the exception that there appear to be more author-signed first printings of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone than author-signed first printings of Mockingjay.. Signed by Author. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/Fine.

      Modena: Franco Cosimo Panini, 2008. morocco binding adorned with silver and enamel work and semi-preciuos stones, clamshell case. NE. Illuminated Manuscripts. 8vo. morocco binding adorned with silver and enamel work and semi-preciuos stones, clamshell case. 274 pages. Facsimile with accompanying hardcover commentary. One of 980 copies. This extremely refined masterwork of the Italian Renaissance (1503) was commissioned by Bonaparte Ghislieri, who belonged to a leading family of Bologna. Also Bolognese was the calligrapher, Pietro Antonio Sallando (a grammarian at the citys university and a renowned calligraphy master). A treasury of masterpieces: Ghislieris intention was to produce a small anthology of the finest illuminations in central and northern Italy. To this end he called upon a number of the leading artists of this period, each of whom was to produce a full-page illumination. Thus, we find works by Amico Aspertini (Adoration of the Shepherds), Perugino (San Sebastiano), Lorenzo Costa (David with lyre), Francesco Francia (San Gerolamo), and, in all likelihood, Matteo da Milano (Annunciation). Marvellous embellishments: Notable, too, are the embellishments framing the illustrations, produced with an abundance of floral motifs and references to the classic tradition. Indeed, a number of pages include fragile, fantastic, grotesque figures inspired by the decor of the Grotte (caves) of the Esquiline Hill in Rome (the site of the buried remains of Neros Domus Aurea, or Golden House, which, when uncovered in 1480, immediately attracted the attention of the artists of that period). The elaborate binding: The morocco binding, with its finely executed floral motifs on polychrome silk satin, is quite remarkable. The covers are adorned with two bezels or settings for semi-precious stones and two centrally positioned roundels for the figures of the Annunciation. Patronage: The works original owner (as indicated by the coat of arms) was Bonaparte Ghislieri, who was elected a senator in Bologna following the assassination of his father, Virgilio, in 1523. When the codex was produced, Bonaparte Ghislieri was still rather young and it may be that this Libro dOre had been commissioned by Bonapartes father for his sons use. The codex passed from the house of Ghislieri into the hands of the Albani family of Urbino, where, according to record, it was to be found in the eighteenth century. In the nineteenth century, the work reached Britain, where it was purchased by Henry Yates Thompson in 1897. It has been at the British Library since 1941. The Commentary: The work is accompanied by a book with commentary, edited by Massimo Medica, with writings by Giancarlo Benevolo, Peter Kidd and Massimo Medica. Facsimile is present with the accompanying commentary and a clamshell case.

      Modena: Franco Cosimo Panini, 2008. velvet binding with precious stones and gilded silver, clamshell case. 105361|105364|35852|45528/NE. Illuminated Manuscripts. 8vo. velvet binding with precious stones and gilded silver, clamshell case. 201 pages, 6 plates. Facsimile with accompanying hardcover commentary. One of 980 copies. The Libro d&#39;Ore Durazzo, which takes its name from its last owner, is a small masterpiece by the painter and illuminator, Francesco Marmitta. This remarkable work is in two ways quite different from all other devotional codices for private use. One is the use of purple parchment. The other is chrysography, or writing in letters of gold the work of the master calligrapher, Pietro Antonio Sallando, who taught at the University of Bologna. The illumination work of a goldsmith and jeweller: The illumination work is by the painter from Parma, Francesco Marmitta (circa 1462/1466-1505) also a renowned jeweller and inlayer, and the creator of other splendid works such as the stunning Missal of Domenico della Rovere, belonging to the museum of the municipality of Turin (Museo Civico di Torino). The leafs of these masterpieces reflect the artists sensitivity and delicacy, his marked interest in landscapes, and his taste for jewellery, medals and cameos, illustrated with extraordinary skill. Embellishment of the highest order: Marmittas references to the revived classic tradition indicate a meditative approach. This aspect comes to the fore in his use of purple and of gold lettering, and is also underscored by his use of motifs such as trophies, medallions, cameos and bucrania. However, as a painter, the approach adopted for the Calendar and Offices of the Virgin reveals his awareness of the latest tendencies reflected in the culture of the figurative arts in Bologna, and a special interest in the work of Amico Aspertini. The refinement of the binding: The works lavishly elegant binding dates back to the time of the codex itself, and the love of embellishments is as evident here as in the illuminations. The binding features wrought and embossed silver, in part gilded, on crimson velvet. It also features a splendid profusion of classical motifs (acanthus and palmette motifs, ears of wheat, grapes, vases, masks, scarabs and bucrania). The silver clasps are adorned with two small rubies. Patronage: A number of stylistic clues seem to indicate that the Libro dOre Durazzo was commissioned by a patron from Parma. We may also note Parmigianinos well-known Portrait of a Collector (London, National Gallery), in which the collector holds in his hand precisely this codex. It is believed that the codex accompanied Francesco Marmittas second son, Jacopo, to Portugal. However, in the nineteenth century it was in Genoa. Firstly, it was in the hands of the merchant, Antonio Bacigalupo, who inherited it from his father, Francesco, and then in the hands of the Marquis Marcello Luigi Durazzo a collector, who, having purchased it from Bacigalupos widow, then bequeathed it to the Biblioteca Berio. The Commentary: The work is accompanied by a book with commentary, edited by Andrea De Marchi, with writings by Beatrice Bentivoglio-Ravasio, Andrea De Marchi, Davide Gasparotto, Laura Malfatto, Laura Nuvoloni and Federica Toniolo. Facsimile is present with the accompanying commentary and a clamshell case.

        The Tales of Beedle the Bard (Presentation Copy)

      London: Bloomsbury / Children&#39;s High Level Group, 2008. First trade edition. Fine. A Fine copy in the publisher&#39;s original illustrated boards. Slightest bumping to the corners, otherwise unworn. No dust jacket, as issued. Warmly inscribed by the author: "To Dan with love from J. K. Rowling" with security hologram on the half-title. After the success of the Harry Potter series, Rowling created this spin-off work of short stories, including "The Tale of the Three Brothers" which figures prominently in the plot of "The Deathly Hallows" as well as four other short tales. The author originally created seven handwritten manuscripts in 2007 as gifts for the people associated with the series, auctioning one off for charity (it brought 1.95 million pounds). The following year it was published and released in this edition and in a deluxe edition. However, unlike previous releases, there was only one signing event for this book, at the National Library of Scotland for a group of around 200 children, ages 8 - 11 selected through a lottery. The warmth of this inscription implies a more personal connection and is likely a copy given by the author to a friend. Fine.

        The Ludwig von Beethoven Diamond

      One of only three created from locks of Beethovenís hair! From ìThe Beethoven locks of hair used for creating these LifeGems have been authenticated and provided exclusively by John Reznikoff of University Archives Ã? The Beethoven LifeGem diamond creation process was completed in 2008 and has since been added to the LifeGem ëchain of fameíÃ?î Beethovenís carbon was collected from the hair, purified into graphite, subjected to heat and pressure in a diamond press, and finally faceted into a LifeGem. The Ludwig von Beethoven LifeGem diamond is a blue .56 carat round brilliant diamond which was the first ever created from the carbon of a celebrity or historical figure. Three diamonds were created partially from 130 mg of carbon extracted from 10 strands of hair from the remains of Beethoven, and partially from added carbon. One of the three diamonds was listed for auction on with a ìBuy It Nowî price of $1 million, with the proceeds to be donated to charity. With a starting bid of $50,000, the diamond was eventually sold for $202,700 after 62 bids on . One of the other two diamonds was given to John Reznikoff, and the third diamond is being kept by LifeGem for the LifeGem "Chain of Fame.î

      (PRINCE, RICHARD). Frey, James. RICHARD PRINCE: CANAL ZONE. New York: Gagosian Gallery, 2008. First Edition. Oblong 4to. Illustrated Boards. Artist Monograph. As New/No Jacket - As Issued. 91pp, profusely illustrated in color. Designed by Graphic Thought Process. Published in conjunction with a 2008 Gagosian Gallery New York exhibition, this elegant hardbound catalogue featuring a textual contribution by James Frey reproduced the first showing of Richard Prince&#39;s "Canal Zone" body of work. "Following his burlesque dialogues with the art of De Kooning, Picasso, and Naughty Nurse pulp fiction, Prince has turned to his own biographical roots for inspiration. The Panama Canal Zone, where he was born, was, until 1979, a political exclave of the U.S., part-colonial company enclave and part-socialist government, purportedly dominated by virulent separatist racism. In his characteristic manner, Prince has transformed the former reality of his birthplace into a fictive space: providing an anarchic tropical scenario in which extreme emanations of the (white American male) id, fleshy female pin-ups, Rastafarians with massive dreadlocks, electric guitars, and virile black bodies run riot". A pristine copy still in the publisher&#39;s shrinkwrap of this significant publication that was subsequently withdrawn from publication due to legal issues.

        The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo [Advance Copy of the First English-Language Edition]

The advance reading copy of the first British edition, and first English language edition, of the first book in Larsson&#39;s posthumously-published bestselling Millennium Trilogy. Fine in wrappers. The U.K. edition preceded the U.S. edition and had a much smaller printing, as is usual. The advance reading copy was presumably issued in numbers that comprise a small fraction of the U.K. printing and is the scarcest and earliest English-language issue of this astonishingly well-received novel that we have seen. . First Edition. Softcover.

The pages are clean, crisp, unmarked and uncreased with no underlining, highlighting, or notes. We package all books in custom cardboard book boxes for shipment and ship daily with tracking numbers.; "Richard Lynn s new book shows that in many multi-racial countries, people of Jewish and East Asian ancestry average highest in IQ and socio-economic position, Whites next highest, South Asians and Hispanics next highest, and people of African descent consistently average at lower levels. Lynn argues that the average population group differences in socio-economic position (education levels, earnings, welfare dependency) are due to their average differences in intelligence. Since these differences also translate into fertility patterns, with the lowest IQ populations having more children, the specter of a dysgenic future is raised. Altogether the issues are discussed separately across 13 countries or areas of the world: the United States, Africa, Australia, Brazil, Britain, Canada, the Caribbean, Hawaii, Latin America, the Netherlands, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia.Table of Contents: Africa; Australia; Brazil; Britain; Canada; The Caribbean; Hawaii; Latin America; The Netherlands; New Zealand; Southeast Asia; The United States; Conclusions; Appendix: Intelligence Tests, References, Name Index, and Subject Index."; 8.90 X 5.90 X 0.90 inches; 380 pages .
