        A Hebrew Alphabet.

      (London) Jo Bird (2009) - 48mo. (22)pp., accordion-fold. Signed by the artist. A one of a kind artist's book by Jo Bird, who designed, printed, and bound the book. Folding out from right to left into a long panorama, the book is comprised of twenty-two linocuts depicting the letters of the Hebrew alphabet. Each calligraphic letter is printed in black ink onto swaths of gold leaf, so that the gold illuminates the letterforms and gives texture and depth to the prints. Bound in deep yellow morocco with Aleph and Tav, the first and last letters of the Hebrew alphabet, carbon-tooled to the covers with short, varied impressions. Bird was elected a Fellow of Designer Bookbinders in 2006, after earning the Mansfield medal and first prize at the annual Designer Bookbinders competition in 2005. She finds inspiration for her art in text, and intends her binding designs to become a natural extension of the book. In an artist's statement she writes, "It is important for me to bind a given book with great respect for the contents. My aim is to entice and excite the reader into the book, and to achieve harmony between design and function." Housed in an elegant gray cloth-covered box lined with printed paper. Book measures 4 by 3 3/8 inches; 104x85mm. When unfolded, the panorama measures 68 3/4 inches in length. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Humaniste, disciple de Jules Scaliger, devenu professeur a Bordeaux - il eut Montaigne comme eleve -, maitre des membres de la Pleiade a Paris, M.-A. Muret fut condamne au bucher pour heresie et homosexualite ; il ne dut son salut qu'a sa fuite en Italie ou il s'etablit et enseigna. 1- Importante edition, la derniere donnee par M.-A. Muret de son vivant, de son oeuvre la plus celebre, recueil de pieces legeres et sensuelles qui exercerent une forte influence. "Muret y exhibe sa virtuosite et son ingeniosite, mais s'inscrit aussi (...) repond aux exigences morales de l'ideal educatif humaniste" (sur l'ouvrage et l'importance de cette edition, cf. Virginie Ledoux, 'Juvenilia', Droz, 2009). 2- Deuxieme edition, la premiere parisienne, publiee quelques mois apres l'originale. M.-A. Muret sacrifie aux exigences du nouveau breviaire post-tridentin pour livrer ce recueil d'hymnes qui gardent la fraicheur et la sensualite de sa poesie profane. (Renouard, 'Estienne', p. 179, n°3). 3- Tres rare premiere et unique edition collective des oeuvres de Claude Roillet, "l'essentiel de sa production litteraire". Elle contient quatre tragedies latines ('Philanera', 'Petrus', 'Aman' et 'Catharina'), des dialogues, une eglogue, un epithalame et des epigrammes. Ne a Beaune, regent du college de Bourgogne, puis recteur de l'universite de Paris, Claude Roillet etait en relation avec les humanistes de son epoque, Turnebe, G. Paradin, Jean Dorat. Par ses tragedies qui furent jouees, il occupe une place importante dans le theatre du XVIe siecle. Grande vignette de titre a la marque et a la devise de l'editeur dans un large decor architectural. (Gautheret-Comboulot , 'Auteurs beaunois', p. 9. Oberle, n°198. Renouard, 'Marques', n°490. Soleinne, I, n°218). Cachet armorie ex-libris "Charles Henneguier" au verso du titre.

        Daphne. Versionen eines Mythos. Zeichnungen und Gedichte.

      Frankfurt am Main, Insel Verlag, 2009.. Vorzugsausgabe in 300 numerierten Exemplaren. 980 Seiten 4°, gebundene Ausgabe, Original-Ganz-Leineneeinband als Graphikmappe mit Magnetverschluß. die Graphikmappe ungelesen und wie neu, als Vorzugsausgabe in 300 Exemplaren mit einer beigebundenen einfarbigen Radierung von Markus Lüpertz, arabisch numeriert und von beiden Künstlern signiert. Einband als fadengehefteter Leineneinbad in Form einer Graphikmappe mit Magnetverschluß. Dies ist ie Nummer 13. Die Geschichte von Daphne ist einer der reizvollsten und vieldeutigsten Mythen der Antike: Daphne, das war die treue Gefährtin der Artemis, die ihre Liebhaber verschmähte, selbst den Apoll, der sie leidenschaftlich begehrte. Aber retten konnte sie sich nur um den Preis einer Metamorphose: Auf der Flucht vor dem Gott und um Rettung flehend zu Zeus, verwandelt sich die Gejagte in einen Lorbeer. Auf 39 von ihm ausgewählten und angeordneten Blättern zeigt Markus Lüpertz das bildnerische Potential des Mythos von Daphne: in einer Fülle von Metamorphosen und im virtuosen Wechsel der Perspektiven. Parallel dazu hat sich Durs Grünbein der Herausforderung einer lyrischen Annäherung gestellt. In 27 Gedichten von formal klassischer Simplizität interpretiert er den Mythos neu und stellt zu den Bildern seine Version der Geschichte.

        Autographed statement regarding the story of John Minihan's icon phototograph of Samuel Beckett in "Le Petit Cafe".

      . 8°. 18-line statement of John on the front pastedown of a paperback (John Fletcher - "About Beckett: the playwright & the work). Ink on paper - John wrote this on his trip to Vietnam in 2009. Dated "1st December 2009 - Ho Chi Minh City". / Also included: "John Minihan - Beckett fotografieren. 5 pages. Detmold, Literaturbüro, 1996. (Tells the story of how Minihan meets Beckett and how the "Le Petit Cafe"-picture was taken. In german language). Signed by John Minihan//. John had the habit of conserving his thoughts (while travelling) immediately on every paper reachable. Often this lead to him using covers or pastedowns of books. This wonderful autograph is extraordinary because it is the only existing handwritten statement we are aware of - that deals with the development of the story around the Samuel Beckett-photograph John is reknown for. "1st December 2009 - Ho-Chi-Minh-City - Someone recently asked me what did i say to Samuel Beckett to get him to pose for what now became an Icon Picture of the writer; well i did not have to say much - for Sam was very much the Director in the picture that i took; yes i knew where i wanted him; yes i knew what Lens i would use; yes I wanted to place him in Paris - But the eyes (,) the way he (was) gazing into space; that's all him, thats how he wante to be percevered" John Minihan is an Irish photographer, born in Dublin in 1946 and raised in Athy, County Kildare. At the age of 12 he was brought to live in London, and went on to become an apprentice photographer with the Daily Mail. At the age of 15 he won the Evening Standard amateur photography competition. At 21 he became the youngest staff photographer for the Evening Standard. For thirty years he remained in London, returning every year to his hometown of Athy to record the people and their daily lives. The work of Minihan in Athy makes up a large part of his canon. Minihan began taking photos in Athy when he was 16. The photos are an attempt to document the lives of the ordinary people of the town in their day to day business and also in times of joy and sadness, notably during the wake of a woman called Katy Tyrrell. In between documenting Athy on visits home, Minihan continued his career on Fleet Street, which included the iconic snap of the 19-year-old Lady Diana Spencer in the garden of the nursery at which she worked, the morning sun to her back, her legs in silhouette through her skirt. Diana had just been announced as the Prince of Wales's love interest and photographers raced to take her photo, Minihan having the fortune to turn up first. Over the years Minihan developed a close relationship with many writers and his photographs of Samuel Beckett show a particular affinity between the two men. Minihans photos of Beckett are some of his best known, one in particular is described as one of the greatest photos of the twentieth century. William S. Burroughs once referred to Minihan as "a painless photographer". Minihan is perhaps best known for his photographs of Samuel Beckett. Minihan first expressed a desire to photograph Beckett in 1969, following Becketts winning of the Nobel Prize for literature, having noticed that all the available photos of Beckett were of a poor quality; 'We were running a story but discovered there were only two very vague images of Beckett taken many years before. It was like he didn't exist - that was the moment I decided I wanted to meet this man and take his photograph.' Minihan first encountered Beckett in London in 1980, while Beckett was working on a production of one of his own plays, Endgame. Minihan met Beckett in the Hyde Park hotel and showed him some of his photos of Athy to break the ice. The two met on a number of occasions over the next few years, but it was not until 1985 that they met in Paris. They arranged to meet in the restaurant of the Hotel PLM, a regular haunt of Beckett. At ten to five, with the light fading, Minihan took the photo that would go on to be called by some as the photograph of the twentieth century. John Calder credited Minihan with capturing, 'the introspective, infinitely sad gaze of a man looking into the abyss of the world's woes'. Among his numerous photographic publications are Photographs: Samuel Beckett (1995); Shadows from the Pale, Portrait of an Irish Town (1996); and An Unweaving of Rainbows, Images of Irish Writers, 1996. He is currently a freelance photographer specialising in 'the arts'. His book of photographs of Samuel Beckett was published in 1995. His photographs of Athy have been exhibited throughout the world. He was given the freedom of Athy in 1990. Minihan currently lives and works in West Cork. Minihan's many exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world include the Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro, 1984; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris 1986; the National Portrait Gallery, London 1987/8 and the October Gallery, London 1990 as well as the Guinness Hop Store, Dublin 1991.

        Seven Stories

      Göttingen:: Steidl Verlag,, 2009. 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.

        A Book of Commandments, for the Government of the Church of Christ, Organized According to Law, on the 6th of April, 1830

      Salt Lake City, UT: Scrub Oak Bindery, 2009. 1/29. Leather bound. NEW. 160pp. Vegisemo-Quarto (24mo) [12 cm] Full leather. Fine. Housed in a custom clamshell that also includes a separately bound foreword by Peter Crawley. This edition is limited to 29 lettered copies. This edition is hand-sewn and bound using techniques consistent with historical styles. The deluxe edition also includes two letterpress printed title page variants for framing or display, as well as space for a leaf. A fine letterpress replica of the 1833 Book of Commandments, the most sought after LDS text, of which only twenty-nine copies are known to exist. The plates used for the replicas were scanned from the Wilford Woodruff copy. The paper for the book was made by hand at Tryst Press using linen and cotton fibers with an oak leaf watermark. The books are printed using photopolymer plates on a Vandercook proofing press.& & "With the prospects of a Mormon press came the possibility of printing Joseph Smith's revelation and making them more widely available to the members of the Church. At a conference in Hiram, Ohio, in November 1831, it was resolved to print the revelations in book form under the title Book of Commandments in an edition of 10,000. Five months later, when Joseph Smith, Sidney Rigdon, and other journeyed to Independence with paper for the new Mormon press, the size of the edition was reduced to 3000. Five signatures comprising 160 pages had been printed when the printing shop was destroyed on July 20, 1833 by an angry anti-Mormon mob. Sheets of the unfinished book were salvaged from the wreckage of the shop; some were collected as they blew about the streets of Independence. From these sheets a few copies of the Book of Commandments were assembled. Twenty-nine copies have surfaced in 176 years, most in homemade bindings - a reflection of the salvaged nature of the book. The title page occurs in two states, with and without an ornamental border.& & Just what the completed Book of Commandments would have contained is a matter of conjecture. Considering those revelations published earlier in the Star and those published subsequently in the Doctrine and Covenants, it would appear that the completed book would have contained at least one and possibly two additional signatures." - Peter Crawley.
