        Her Fearful Symmetry

      Jonathan Cape, 2009. 1st. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Signed by Author. Mint unread UK First Edition, First Printing SIGNED by author on full title page. "Julia and Valentina Poole are normal American teenagers - normal, at least, for identical 'mirror' twins who have no interest in college or jobs or possibly anything outside their cozy suburban home. But everything changes when they receive notice that an aunt whom they didn't know existed has died and left them her flat in an apartment block overlooking Highgate Cemetery in London. They feel that at last their own lives can begin .but have no idea that they've been summoned into a tangle of fraying lives, from the obsessive-compulsive crossword setter who lives above them to their aunt's mysterious and elusive lover who lives below them, and even to their aunt herself, who never got over her estrangement from the twins' mother - and who can't even seem to quite leave her flat. With Highgate Cemetery itself a character and echoes of Henry James and Charles Dickens, "Her Fearful Symmetry" is a delicious and deadly twenty-first-century ghost story about Niffenegger's familiar themes of love, loss and identity. It is certain to cement her standing as one of the most singular and remarkable novelists of our time"

        The Angel's Game

      Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 2009. 1st printing 1st. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Signed by Author. UK First in perfect condition. First Edition & First Printing. Not price clipped, no inscriptions. SIGNED and DATED JUNE 3rd 2009 to title page. Complete with rare promo bookmark. SYNOPSIS: In an abandoned mansion at the heart of Barcelona, a young man - David Martin - makes his living by writing sensationalist novels under a pseudonym. The survivor of a troubled childhood, he has taken refuge in the world of books, and spends his nights spinning baroque tales about the city's underworld. But perhaps his dark imaginings are not as strange as they seem, for in a locked room deep within the house are letters hinting at the mysterious death of the previous owner. Like a slow poison, the history of the place seeps into his bones as he struggles with an impossible love. Then David receives a letter from a reclusive French editor, Andreas Corelli, who makes him the offer of a lifetime. He is to write a book with the power to change hearts and minds. In return, he will receive a fortune, perhaps more. But as David begins the work, he realises that there is a connection between this haunting book and the shadows that surround his home. Set in the turbulent 1920s, The Angel's Game takes us back to the gothic universe of the Cemetery of the Forgotten Books, the Sempere and Son bookshop, and the winding streets of Barcelona's old quarter, in a masterful tale about the magic of books and the darkest corners of the human soul.

        The Quickening Maze

      Jonathan Cape, 2009. 1st printing 1st. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Signed by Author. A Fine Unread copy in likewise Fine/Mint dustwrapper. The book has been signed and dated by the author to title page. Book is in Mint condition. Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. Small print run. Synopsis: Based on real events in Epping Forest on the edge of London around 1840, "The Quickening Maze" centres on the first incarceration of the great nature poet John Clare. After years struggling with alcohol, critical neglect and depression, Clare finds himself in High Beach Private Asylum - an institution run on reformist principles which would later become known as occupational therapy. At the same time another poet, the young Alfred Tennyson, moves nearby and becomes entangled in the life and catastrophic schemes of the asylum's owner, the peculiar, charismatic Dr Matthew Allen. For John Clare, a man who had grown up steeped in the freedoms and exhilarations of nature, who thought 'the edge of the world was a day's walk away', a locked door is a kind of death. This intensely lyrical novel describes his vertiginous fall, through hallucinatory episodes of insanity and dissolving identity, towards his final madness. Historically accurate, but brilliantly imagined, the closed world of High Beach and its various inmates - the doctor, his lonely daughter in love with Tennyson, the brutish staff and John Clare himself - are brought vividly to life. Outside the walls is Nature, and Clare's paradise: the birds and animals, the gypsies living in the forest; his dream of home, of redemption, of escape. Rapturous yet precise, exquisitely written, rich in character and detail, this is a remarkable and deeply affecting book: a visionary novel which contains a world.

      Jonathan Cape, 2009. 1st printing 1st. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Signed by Author. A Fine Unread copy in likewise Fine/Mint dustwrapper. The book has been SIGNED and DATED by the author to title page and is in Mint condition. Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize and Shortlisted for the 2009 Orange prize. Synopsis: It's Jake's birthday. He is sitting in a small plane, being flown over the landscape that has been the backdrop to his life - his childhood, his marriage, his work, his passions. Now he is in his early sixties, and he isn't quite the man he used to be. He has lost his wife, his son is in prison, and he is about to lose his past. Jake has Alzheimer's. As the disease takes hold of him, Jake struggles to hold on to his personal story, to his memories and identity, but they become increasingly elusive and unreliable. What happened to his daughter? Is she alive, or long dead? And why exactly is his son in prison? What went so wrong in his life? There was a cherry tree once, and a yellow dress, but what exactly do they mean? As Jake, assisted by 'poor Eleanor', a childhood friend with whom for some unfathomable reason he seems to be sleeping, fights the inevitable dying of the light, the key events of his life keep changing as he tries to grasp them, and what until recently seemed solid fact is melting into surreal dreams or nightmarish imaginings. Is there anything he'll be able to salvage from the wreckage? Beauty, perhaps, the memory of love, or nothing at all? From the first sentence to the last, "The Wilderness" holds us in its grip. This is writing of extraordinary power and beauty.

        Fragments of Prayers #3

      Pasadena, MD. 2009. Artist's book, unique copy, the third of three in a series each in a different format, of Sanskrit mantra, Om mani padme hum, on heavy-weight St. Armand paper, with artist's statement printed out on separate sheet and enclosed with book. Page size: 6.875 x 8 x 6.875 x 6 inches; 60 leaves. Bound by the artist: Photo Carousel style binding using black paper and housed in custom-made box of tan and black paper over boards, as the pages do not lie flat nicely like those in FRAGMENTS OF PRAYERS 2, and the artist wanted them to look like a slide carousel so they are housed in a round box inspired by a CD container. bound with black grosgrain ribbon with the title painted and lettered on another piece of St. Armand heavy weight paper, FRAGMENTS OF PRAYERS #3, in black ink, set into tan label attached with black grosgrain label and signed Elizabeth McKee and dated 2009. The text, Om Mani Padme Hum, has been painted and hand-lettered in gesso, sumi, walnut ink and white gouache with sixty different tools, thirty on each side on a sheet of white heavy-weight St. Armand paper. The artist then tore the sheet into sixty pieces for binding. The chant, Om Mani Padme Hum, is particularly associated with the four-armed Shadakshari form of Avalokiteshvara, the bodhisattva of compassion. Mani means "jewel" and padma means "the lotus flower" the Buddhist Sacred Flower. The chant is commonly carved into rocks - called "mani stones" - or written on paper and inserted into prayer wheels. When the wheel is spun, it is said to have the same effect as reciting the mantra as many times as it is duplicated within the wheel. Talented book artist and calligrapher, Elizabeth Mckee's own aesthetic has enabled her to create a completely contemporary version of this ancient form for presenting a text.

        TORRIANI BOOK OF HOURS.|THE

      Modena: Franco Cosimo Panini, 2009. Bound by hand (gilded silver binding covers and spine), clamshell case. 105363|105364|35852|45528/NE. Illuminated Manuscripts. Large Miniature. Bound by hand (gilded silver binding covers and spine), clamshell case. 30 pages, 333 pages. Facsimile with accompanying hardcover commentary. One of 980 copies. With its extraordinary binding and highly elaborate illumination work, while very small, this precious Book of Hours must be considered an absolute masterpiece. The Commentary: The work is accompanied by a book with commentary, edited by Pier Luigi Mulas, with writings by Marco Collareta, Jean-Baptiste Lebigue and Monica Visioli. Facsimile is present with the accompanying commentary and a clamshell case. The Torriani Book of Hours is just one of a small handful of manuscripts of this period which still have their original bindings. It is therefore an exceedingly rare item. The two binding covers, with their gilded silver filigree work, are adorned with cameos representing Saint Catherine and Saint Lucy. Inside the binding covers, we also find 14 enamel inserts representing the Kiss of Judas, the Way to Calvary and twelve busts of saints. The wealth, luxury and refinement of the times is clearly illustrated by the Torriani Book of Hours, alongside other devotional works of this kind produced by the jewellers workshops of Milan under the House of Sforza. Thirty illuminations adorn this small devotional codex. Twelve are Calendar illustrations. For the eighteen Offices of the Virgin we find six full-page illuminations and twelve pages with illuminated initials featuring architectural and floral motifs, putti, birds and rabbits. The illustrations for the Torriani Hours may be ascribed to the Milanese bottega (workshop) of the great Giovanni Ambrogio de Predis. This leading workshop operated in full awareness of the latest developments in the field of painting in Lombardy at the close of the fifteenth century, and, in particular, of the art of Leonardo da Vinci (with whom de Predis worked in 1483, on the Virgin of the Rocks). The embellishments of the borders, with their markedly naturalistic representations of animals, jewels and floral sprays, are the work of the young Matteo da Milano one of the leading illuminators of Milan who received commissions from the most important Houses of Renaissance Italy. The codex was commissioned by the Milanese Della Torre or Torriani house, an illustrious family of Lombardy which, for some time, ruled over Milan. Further confirmation of the Milanese origin of the work is to be found in the inclusion of certain features such as local saints, in the Calendar, and the church of Santa Maria Maggiore, Milans old cathedral, surmounted by a statue of Saint Ambrose (the Patron Saint of Milan). However, the identity of the lady for whom the codex was made, perhaps a lady of the court of Ludovico Sforza, is unknown.

        Seven Stories

      Göttingen: Steidl Verlag, 2009. First edition. 7 volumes with the original slipcase. Signed twice by Robert Frank, once in volume 1 and on the front of the slipcase. Each volume is in fine condition, as is the box. Seven Stories brings together sequences of single images Frank has been compiling to create books of new work. As always the photographs and stories relate to Frank's life and milieu, his homes in Mabou and New York, or a trip to China or Spain. This collection of small books is a new stage in the practice of this remarkable artist who continually challenges the limits of photography and film and strives to avoid repeating himself. Robert Frank is the photographer of the classic work The Americans and has been compared to a modern-day de Tocqueville for his original perspective of American society. He was born in Switzerland, and though he was initially optimistic about United States society and culture, Frank came to believe the fast pace of American life derived from an overemphasis on money. His photography is an honest portrayal of an often bleak and lonely urbanized country.

        BULLETIN MENSUEL DE DOCUMENTATION - 12 DÉCEMBRE 2009-25 MARS 2010

      Secrétariat Privé de Norodom Sihanouk du Cambodge décembre 2009-mars 2010, Beijing - Neuf numéros agrafés, 29,5cm x 21cm, environ 200pp par numéro, très nombreuses photos n/bl, photos en couleurs, 5kg. "Deux numéros ont le dernier feuillet dégrafé, sinon excellent état à comme neuf. Le Bulletin Mensuel de Documentation est confectionné par le Secrétariat Privé du Roi sous le contrôle méticuleux de ce dernier et ce, depuis début 1970 (sa parution ayant néanmoins été interdite lorsque les Khmers Rouges étaient au pouvoir), le Souverain décidant lui-même de ce qui est publié, rédigeant et écrivant parfois à la main mises au point, commentaires et réflexions, notamment en marge des articles de presse qu'il reprend, et apposant son paraphe au bas de certaines pages. Bien que s'en défendant, parfois avec humour, il rédige régulièrement des lettres censées lui avoir été envoyées des Pyrénées par un certain Ruom Ritt, dont il a créé le personnage, et qui s'exprime sur des sujets d'actualité avec la liberté de ton que le Souverain ne peut endosser étant donné son statut constitutionnel, ce qui lui permet de ne pas renoncer à sa liberté de parole; ces prétendues lettres sont un témoignage particulièrement original de son génie de la communication. Expédié à quelques centaines d'exemplaires (le n° du 20-28 juin 2003 indique que ce nombre n'a cessé de croître pour atteindre alors près de 400 exemplaires, mais qu'il sera réduit dorénavant à 250 exemplaires maximum) à des destinataires cambodgiens et étrangers soigneusement sélectionnés par le Roi, et comprenant notamment de nombreux membres de la famille Royale, le Bulletin - qui n'est pas strictement mensuel malgré sa dénomination, mais paraît toutes les une à quatre semaines - reflète à la fois avec précision et une grande subtilité le point de vue du Souverain face aux menées d'une classe politique dont il désapprouve souvent les choix et les m&#156;urs, tout en laissant parfois percer sa sympathie pour certains responsables qui ont le courage de se démarquer des prises de position du pouvoir en place. Cette publication, émanant d'un Chef d'Etat qui a traversé les épreuves les plus tragiques depuis qu'il a accédé au trône en 1941, est sans équivalent dans l'histoire et dans le monde; elle constitue une source de documentation absolument unique et ses exemplaires sont rarissimes. A noter que Norodom Sihanouk continue de l'éditer depuis qu'il a abdiqué. L'essentiel des textes est en français, mais de nombreux documents, articles et lettres sont en cambodgien ou, plus rarement, en anglais. Chaque numéro contient le compte-rendu des activités du Roi-Père, celui de ses actions aux plans social et humanitaire, des textes de sa main, des extraits de ses ouvrages, des extraits d'ouvrages d'époque concernant la période antérieure à 1970, des notes concernant ses compositions musicales et ses films, la reproduction en fac-similé de nombreux documents historiques et de la très volumineuse correspondance qui lui est adressée, des extraits de presse, etc Parmi ses textes manuscrits, relevons un communiqué du 3 février 2010 par lequel il annonce qu'il met fin à ses activités cinématographiques et à celles de "Khémara Pictures" et un communiqué du 23 février par lequel il annonce qu'il n'est plus en mesure de recevoir des journalistes.

      Benedikt Taschen Verlag, Koln, GERMANY 2009 - np (546pp), profusely illustrated in b&w and color. "During the 1960s, Dennis Hopper carried a camera everywhere - on film sets and locations, at parties, in diners, bars and galleries, driving on freeways and walking on political marches. He photographed movie idols, pop stars, writers, artists, girlfriends, and complete strangers. Along the way he captured some of the most intriguing moments of his generation with a keen and intuitive eye. From a selection of images compiled by Hopper and gallerist Tony Shafrazi - more than a third of them previously unpublished - this extensive volume distills the essence of Hopper&#146;s brilliantly prodigious photographic career. Also included are introductory essays by Tony Shafrazi and legendary West Coast art pioneer Walter Hopps, and an extensive biography by journalist Jessica Hundley. With excerpts from Victor Bockris&#146; interviews of Hopper&#146;s famous subjects, friends, and family, this volume is an unprecedented exploration of the life and mind of one of America&#146;s most fascinating personalities".

        MOONFIRE: THE EPIC JOURNEY OF APOLLO 11 - FIRST LIMITED EDITION WITH A SIGNED PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINT

      (APOLLO 11). Mailer, Norman, Colum McCann & Buzz Aldrin. MOONFIRE: THE EPIC JOURNEY OF APOLLO 11 - FIRST LIMITED EDITION WITH A SIGNED PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINT. With a Photograph Signed by Buzz Aldrin. Koln, GERMANY: Benedikt Taschen Verlag, 2009. First Edition 1/1969 Deluxe. Folio. Cloth in a Plastic Case. Photography Monograph. As New/As New. 350pp, profusely illustrated in color and b&w. "To commemorate the fortieth anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing, Taschen has paired Norman Mailer&#39;s seminal text with spectacular photography from the archives of NASA, LIFE magazine and many other sources to create a unique tribute to the defining scientific mission of our era. It has been called the single most historic event of the 20th century: On July 20, 1969 Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins met John F. Kennedy&#39;s call for a manned Moon landing by the end of the 1960s. A decade of tests and training, a staff of 400,000 engineers and scientists, and a twenty-four billion dollar budget climaxed with the launch of the most powerful rocket ever built, and an unprecedented event watched by millions the world over. And nobody captured the men, the mood, and the machinery like Norman Mailer. One of the greatest writers of his generation, Mailer was hired by LIFE to cover the Moon shot. His three-part feature, the longest nonfiction piece LIFE had published, was later developed into his book "Of A Fire On The Moon". This seminal work of cultural analysis and philosophy is reproduced here for the first time ever, and Mailer&#39;s provocative and trenchant insights remain unsurpassed in defining this epochal event. Illustrating Mailer&#39;s gripping text are hundreds of the greatest photographs and film stills from the NASA vaults, magazine archives, and private collections. Many previously unpublished, these images trace the development of the agency and its mission, from early experimentation to that breathtaking instant when Man first stepped on the Moon s surface, and the world&#39;s jubilant reaction. An original introduction by Colum McCann and captions by Apollo 11 experts explain the history and science behind the images, citing the mission log, post-flight interviews with the astronauts, and publications of the day. Each copy includes a Plexiglas-framed, numbered, ready-to-hang, archival-quality photographic print signed by Buzz Aldrin produced using the revolutionary new Skia printing technique. This shot of Aldrin standing on the Moon with fellow astronaut Neil Armstrong reflected in his helmet&#39;s visor is the definitive image of the Apollo 11 mission, and one of the most famous and iconic photos ever taken". A pristine copy (#0452) of this extraordinary, no longer available from the publisher undertaking limited to one thousand, nine hundred and sixty-nine copies unopened in Taschen&#39;s printed shipping carton, as issued.

        The Topography of Home

      Oakland: In Cahoots Press, 2009. Hard Cover. Fine. Hard Cover. Macy Chadwick formed the In Cahoots Press in 2002. Her work often addresses memory, communication, and connections between people. She is currently teaching book arts and letterpress at the Academy of Art University, the San Francisco Art Institute, and the San Francisco Center for the Book. 2 of 50 copies. Signed and numbered by the artist. "The Topography of Home is the artist&#39;;s attempted reconciliation of living in the present while longing for the remembered feelings of the past, embodied in her childhood hometown. Imagery of letterpress printed maps convey a more emotional than geographical terrain; events and places are recorded and revisited, worried over and longed for. The book&#39;;s pages are punctuated with silk tissue apertures, allowing the viewer to look ahead to a piece of the imagery on the next page, and then, as the page is turned, to look back at a small part of the image on the page before. This sequential aspect of the book literally and metaphorically has the reader both seeing the past through the present and looking forward through history&#39;;s gauze" (Macy Chadwick). Fine in blue paper covered boards with title pastedown to front board. Printed with pressure prints and polymer plates on Mohawk Superfine and French&#39;;s Extra Blue Butcher paper. The window images are hand-stenciled on Silk Tissue. [21 pages.] ARTB/043009.
