        The Young Manhood of Dave Chamlee

      Simi Valley, CA:: Pie in the Sky Press,, 2008. Second, De Luxe, Edition. Like New. Signed. SECOND EDITION, DE LUXE, limited to 33 copies, this is number 24, printed in handset Centaur and Arrighi types. Small 4to. 5 5/8 x 6 3/8 inches. (32) pp. Text printed in black, green, and terra cotta inks, with typographic borders and fleurons in green, 4 photographic images printed in color inks, decorative Massey initials on handmade Khadi paper; text clean, un-marked.

SIGNED by Rebecca Chamlee on the colophon. Fine. The contents of this book were originally written for a term paper for Sophomore Humanities Class at Claremont Men's College around the year 1950. This edition was printed to honor the fortieth anniversary of the death of the author, who was the father of the printer, and the memory of William Zane Chamlee's first cousin, Floyd Chamlee; an excerpt of a letter from Floyd is quoted in the foreword. Based on research in family history including research notes by William F. and Adelle A. Chamlee conducted in 1998, this fascinating story tells about the attitudes and values of the Texas cowboy in the period of the American Civil War to the 1880s. It is a story of primal values attached to honor, boots, and hats, and is a loving tribute to ancestors.

        The Tales of Beedle the Bard (Signed Deluxe Edition)

      London: Children's High Level Group, 2008. First edition. Fine/Fine. A lovely copy of the deluxe edition, in the velvet bag and large clamshell box. With the extra suite of 10 plates and still retaining the original white sleeve on which is written "This Side Up." Signed by the author on the half-title with her security hologram. 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 regular trade 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. Fine in Fine dust jacket.

        Codice Valois. Il Vangelo del Principe di Francia. Legatura artigianale in pelle

      Vallecchi Ed., Firenze, 2008 - Edizione facsimilare del Ms. Casanatense 2020. "La Biblioteca Casanatense annovera nel suo Fondo manoscritti oltre centoquaranta codici medievali liturgici, che vanno dal IX al XVI secolo, raggruppati negli antichi cataloghi sotto la voce «Rituales codices» ma distinti alfabeticamente secondo il loro uso. Di questi, tre soli sono registrati con il titolo specifico di Evangelium o Evangeliarium, indicante volumi che raccolgono i testi dei Vangeli. Il Ms. 2020, conosciuto fino a oggi semplicemente come Evangelia totius anni, è un evangelistario di corte di provenienza francese acquisito dalla Casanatense verso la fine del Settecento o agli inizi dell'Ottocento e contenente i brani dei Vangeli letti durante la messa nei vari periodi dell'anno. Recenti e approfonditi studi sulla storia della miniatura in Francia nel Rinascimento hanno consentito di porre in luce l'attività di atélier come quello di Tours, al quale è probabilmente da ricondurre il codice casanatense, evidenziando le caratteristiche e le sfumature stilistiche degli artisti che operavano per conto dei grandi del regno. Il nostro evangelistario vi sarebbe stato eseguito intorno al 1526, nel periodo in cui il re di Francia Francesco I fu costretto a mandare in Spagna i due figli maggiori, il delfino Francesco e il cadetto Enrico (il futuro En rico II), come ostaggi di Carlo V, in cambio della propria libertà dopo la disfatta di Pavia, avvenuta il 24 febbraio del 1525. Il libro fu realizzato insieme a un manoscritto gemello, oggi custodito alla Biblioteca Nazionale di Madrid, e a un terzo codice, conservato a Chantilly, il cui contenuto, a carattere didascalico, mirava alla formazione dei giovani principi, segregati per ragion di stato a Valladolid. Il legame che unisce i tre codici è indiscutibile, non soltanto per la presenza dei blasoni appartenenti al delfino e ai cadetti, che ne costellano la decorazione, ma perché tutti e tre sono riconducibili alla mano di un copista e di un miniatore originari di Tours e riferibili all'entourage dell'artista prediletto della regina Claudia di Francia. In particolare, l'evangelistario casanatense risulterebbe destinato alla cappella del delfino, Francesco di Valois, come conferma lo stemma ricorrente, mentre il manoscritto di Madrid alla cappella dei cadetti, nell'ipotesi che i fratelli fossero stati separati durante la prigionia. Un gioiello della miniatura rinascimentale nelle cui delicate scenette par di avvertire tutta la trepidazione della committente, la regina Claudia di Francia, ancorché sovrana ma pur sempre madre, che vedeva strappare dal suo petto il proprio piccolo, ostaggio in Spagna alla mercé di Carlo V per quella ragion di stato che non risparmiava né i potenti né i loro ancora imberbi rampolli. Il Codice Valois fu dunque ciò che ella volle far realizzare e consegnare al figlio per accompagnarlo nel suo esilio, perché con le sue letture fosse istruito e avviato su un cammino di fede che lo illuminasse per tutta la vita. Commento al codice a cura della conservatrice dei manoscritti della Biblioteca Casanatense, dott.ssa Isabella Ceccopieri, e della direttrice della Biblioteca Riccardiana di Firenze, dott.ssaGiovanna Lazzi. The manuscripts endowment of the Casanatense Library contains more than one-hundred-forty medieval liturgical codices, from the IX to the XVI century, grouped in the old catalogues under the entry «Rituales codices», but divided alphabetically according to their use. Of these, only three are recorded with the specific title of Evangelium or Evangeliarium, indicating volumes that group texts of the Gospels. The Ms. 2020, until today known simply as Evangelia totius anni, is a court Evangeliary of French origin which the Casanatense purchased around the late eighteenth-century or the early nineteenth century, and contains the passages of the Gospels read during mass in various periods of the year. Recent in-depth studies on the history of illuminating in France during the Renaissance, have made it

        Autograph Letter Signed, 2pp on one sheet, 4to, Nov. 23, 1930, Cleveland, Ohio

      Referring to "Mr. Peanut," Carver tells Grady Porter, a researcher from a peanut processing plant in Columbus, Georgia, that "a little good has been done for 'Mr. Peanut'...." even though Carver noticed on his trip, "the lack of the proper appreciating for some of our natural resources...especially our Shell Marbles. One of the most beautiful buildings at Penn. State College had the window casings, some of the floors, etc. finished in stone almost identical with that on your place...The floors in the lovely building at John Hopkins University Baltimore Md. some of the steps, floors, etc., in one of the finest R. R. stations in the world. The Grand Central, also the Penna. Station, had much of a kind of travertine very similar to the GA. and Ala. travertine. I speak here tomorrow and will then start for home where I hope to see you and Mr. Barry...." He signs, "G. W. Carver." With Tuskegee Institute transmittal envelope. Porter and Bob Barry worked at the Tom Huston Peanut Company, Porter in the shelling department. Carver had achieved widespread recognition by the time he wrote this letter. He was credited for developing peanut products and bringing back the peanut industry which had been devastated by disease from insect infestation at the end of the nineteenth century. Carver also promoted interracial cooperation. Carver is writing to a fellow southerner, from Georgia, and mentions that he feels that some of "our natural resources," meaning natural resources from the south, specifically the Georgia and Alabama areas, are not as highly praised or appreciated as similar natural resources from the north. He refers to the limestone and travertine that the northern buildings were made out of, both the outside and the insides of the various buildings. Grand Central Station is made from Indiana limestone on the outside and among other building materials, the floors are Tennessee pink marble (unlikely he knew that) and the window frames, travertine marble. Johns Hopkins was built with travertine and soapstone. Travertine is similar to limestone or marble, but formed in hot springs. Shell marble, apparently not a common phrase, but possibly common to Carver and other southerners, most likely is describing the visual appearance of the marble or travertine, marbled by the existence of fossil shells creating a pearly appearance. In Russell Sturgis' "Sturgis' Illustrated Dictionary of Architecture and Building," there is an entry under "Marble" for "Lumachelle Marble" which notes "or shell marble" and describes it as interspersed with shells. Carver seems to suggest that southern shell marble or limestone or travertine used in building construction is as nice as what was used in the north, but not as highly appreciated. An interesting addition to the possible interpretation of what Carver was discussing is the fact that in a 2008 exhibition at the Field Museum in Chicago of George Washington Carver's life and work (see article on the exhibition in the Chicago Tribune of January 30, 2008) it is noted that among Carver's numerous inventions is one for "synthetic marble tile made from peanut husks.".

        Aphrodisias.

      Large landscape folio (478 x 350 mm). Bound by hand in a textured Japanese cloth, presented in a slipcase; pp. 240 including 175 full colour photo plates, numerous plans. First edition. Aphrodisias was a free and autonomous city within the Roman province of Asia, in Western Turkey. It was best known for the sanctuary of its patron goddess, Aphrodite, and for its marble sculptors. The community prospered under the early and middle Roman empire (first-second centuries AD), when it built a complete set of marble buildings that made the town a proper city in ancient eyes. Aphrodisias sheds valuable light on interaction between Greek and Roman identity, the functioning of empire, religious conflict and accommodation, and transition from antiquity to the Middle Ages. Aphrodisian sculptors are known to have worked abroad on prestigious commissions, for example, at Hadrian's villa at Tivoli. The surviving body of sculpture is rich and varied. There are statues of gods, heroes, emperors, benefactors, philosophers, and athletes, as well as mythological groups, decorative figures, and ornamental and figured relief sculptures. Many of the key pieces occupy key positions in the history of Roman art. The sculpture of the city is a legacy of unrivalled importance in this field. The archaeology of Aphrodisias gives a fuller, more vivid picture of later classical art in its ancient context than is possible at any other site. Text by Prof. R.R.R. Smith and Julia Lenagham.

        IL LIBRO D'ORE DI BONAPARTE GHISLIERI

      Modena: Franco Cosimo Panini, 2008. 8vo. morocco binding adorned with silver and enamel work and semi-preciuos stones, clamshell case. 274, 247 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 city's university and a renowned calligraphy master).A treasury of masterpieces: Ghislieri's 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 d'Ore 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.
