      Three volume landmark series of papers providing the first mathematical analysis of epidemics as well as “the first mathematical model that could be used to describe an influenza epidemic” (Coburn, “Modeling influenza,” BMC Medicine, 7, 2009, 1741). “Mathematical modeling of epidemics goes back to 1927 with the formulation of [these] classical equations” Lewis, Network Science, 8.1.1). The Kermack-McKendrick model is known as the Susceptible-Infections-Recovered (SIR) model and is used to depict the number of people infected with a contagious illness in a closed population over time. To simulate an influenza epidemic the model, Kermack and McKendrick developed the pioneering threshold theorem that enables the interval between epidemics and their size to be studied. “According to this, the introduction of infectious cases into a community of susceptibles would not give rise to an epidemic if the density of susceptibles was below a certain critical value. Once the critical value was exceeded, then there would be an epidemic of magnitude sufficient to reduce the density of susceptibles as far below the threshold as it originally was above” (Cliff, Deciphering Global Epidemics, 26). [Kermack and McKendrick’s] SIR model has been used as a basis for all subsequent influenza models” (Lewis). Furthermore, beyond influenza models, “most modern mathematical epidemiology” is based on these classic papers (Watts, Six Degrees, 332). CONDITION & DETAILS: Three volume 4to. 10 x 7 inches (250 x 175mm). Ex-libris: Small library stamps on front and rear end papers (IBM Research Laboratories); no other library markings whatsoever.

        The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun, Signed Limited Numbered Super Deluxe Edition

      London: Harper Collins, 2009. De Luxe Edition. Full-Leather. Bill Sanderson. Signed by Editor. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun, The number 88 of 500 of the UK Signed Limited Numbered Super Deluxe Edition, published by Harper Collins in 2009, the first publication of a previously unknown work by J.R.R. Tolkien. Copy number 88, edited and signed by his son, Christopher Tolkien, to the Limitation Notice. The story tells the epic story of the Norse hero Sigurd the dragon slayer, the revenge of his wife, Gudrun, and the Fall of the Niflungs. From the publisher's release statement, "Many years ago, J.R.R. Tolkien composed his own version, now published for the first time, of the great legend of Northern antiquity, in two closely related poems to which he gave the titles The New Lay of the Volsungs and The New Lay of Gudrun. In the Lay of the Volsungs is told the ancestry of the great hero Sigurd, the slayer of Fafnir most celebrated of dragons, whose treasure he took for his own; of his awakening of the Valkyrie Brynhild who slept surrounded by a wall of fire, and of their betrothal; and of his coming to the court of the great princes who were named the Niflungs (or Nibelungs), with whom he entered into blood-brotherhood. In that court there sprang great love but also great hate, brought about by the power of the enchantress, mother of the Niflungs, skilled in the arts of magic, of shape-changing and potions of forgetfulness. In scenes of dramatic intensity, of confusion of identity, thwarted passion, jealousy and bitter strife, the tragedy of Sigurd and Brynhild, of Gunnar the Niflung and Gudrun his sister, mounts to its end in the murder of Sigurd at the hands of his blood-brothers, the suicide of Brynhild, and the despair of Gudrun. In the Lay of Gudrun her fate after the death of Sigurd is told, her marriage against her will to the mighty Atli, ruler of the Huns (the Attila of history), his murder of her brothers the Niflung lords, and her hideous revenge. Deriving his version primarily from his close study of the ancient poetry of Norway and Iceland known as the Poetic Edda (and where no old poetry exists, from the later prose work the Volsunga Saga), J.R.R. Tolkien employed a verse-form of short stanzas whose lines embody in English the exacting alliterative rhythms and the concentrated energy of the poems of the Edda." -- Christopher Tolkien. Features a color frontispiece of a facsimile page from J.R.R. Tolkien's original manuscript. Fully bound in Brown Leather with matching full leather clamshell case, stamped in gold foil with a unique motif of Sigurd's horse, Grani. Printed on superior quality paper and including a silk ribbon marker sewn into the textblock. Matches the recently released UK Signed Limited Numbered Super Deluxe Edition of The Children of Hurin. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions. As New / No Jacket, as Issued.

        Notebook for a Transformation

      [New York. 2009]. Unique artist&#39;s book / wall hanging with bas-relief sculpture and manuscript notebook, collaged with images and text on each page, signed, with the title and date, by the artist / author on the back of bar from which the notebook hangs, "Sandra Jackman." Size: total dimensions of piece are 11 x 11.25 inches, about 2.5 inches deep; the notebook itself is 4 x 6 inches and including covers has 22pp. all of which have been painted and / or collaged. Bound: purchased spiral-bound notebook covered with hand-made paper and collaged with found materials on the front and painted gold with green and yellow on the back, suspended from a wood bar which had been painted and collaged and serves as base for white paper collage of head of angel / demon, with dried pieces suspended from other side of bar in beaded netting. While the bar has mounts on the reverse to facilitate hanging, it is also housed in a black cloth over boards fold- open box measuring 13 x 12 x 3 inches. The text is troubling. A fragment reads, "None the wiser each side dies believing in the sign..." and we understand that religious fanaticism has caused endless pain and destruction throughout human history. Images are not overt. Well-known religious paintings are covered, mutated, transformed, as is the message of goodness and love that marks most of the world&#39;s religions when fanaticism takes over. Disturbingly compelling, this angel and it&#39;s book are spectacular. <br>See an <A HREF= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/10614.jpg >Image.</A><br>

        Elements in Correlation: Printing with the Handpress at Heavenly Monkey

      Vancouver, British Columbia: Heavenly Monkey Press, 2009. Leather Bound. Limited Edition, one of forty numbered copies. Quarto. 39pp, [1], [iv]. Printed damp on a Washington hand-press, using Dante and Dante Titling in two colors on HM Text paper made b Reg Lissel special for this project. Quarter-bound in gilt-stamped morocco and paste-paper over boards (created specially for this project) by Claudia Cohen. A Fine copy, as New. // "Rather than a manual concerned with how to print damp, the text draws on sources such as Eric Gill, Porter Garnett, William Everson and Harry Duncan to focus on why. The essay that forms the core of the bulk - the discussion of damp printing - focuses on how changes in printing methods and materials over the past century are (and are not) reflected in contemporary letterpress publishing. Differences in printing techniques (primarily the results of dry vs damp) will be demonstrated, augmented by four sample leaves spanning four centuries interspersed through the essay: one sample of early printing ( &#39;Praestantium Ac Eruditorum Vivorvm Epistoae Et Theologoicae, Henriuvm Dendrinvm&#39;, Amsterdam 1670); a leaf from a mid-19th century book that combined steelpoint illustration with (dry) letterpress on a coated "art paper" of the period (&#39;Poems&#39; by Jean Ingelow, Longmans, Green, Reader, & Dyer, London 1867); a leaf from a book printed damp under Bruce Rogers&#39; direction at the Riverside Press (&#39;Urne-Buriall, or A Discourse of the Sepulchrall Urnes&#39; lately found in Norfolk by Sir Thomas Browne, 1907); and a leaf from a book printed dry on handmade paper (&#39;Gold: Its Properties, Modes Of Extraction, Values, &c., &c.&#39; by F. G. Claudet, Robert Reid & Takao Tanabe 1958). &#39;Elements in Correlation&#39; also includes a revised version of papermaker Reg Lissel&#39;s profile that originally appeared in Parenthesis (accompanied by a newly commissioned linocut portrait of Reg by Andrea Taylor); a brief concluding chapter on the influence of the Doves Press (previously published as You Can&#39;t Choose Your Progeny, HM 2008); and a full bibliography." ~ from the publisher.

        Keeping Time

      [New York. 2009]. Artist&#39;s book, one of 15 copies, all on Tosa Washi paper, each signed and numbered by the artist / author, Sarah Plimpton. Page size: 15-5/8 x 11- 7/8 inches; plus letterpress printed text of poem on small sheet 6-3/8 x 5- 3/8 inches. 10pp. Bound: loose in grey paper wrappers and housed in grey custom-made cloth over boards clamshell box by Claudia Cohen, label printed in gold gilt on paper on spine with title and author&#39;s name. The book was set in Filosophia type and printed letterpress by Brad Ewing at The Grenfell Press. There are 10 reduction woodcuts printed in several shades of grey, black, magenta, blue, brown and chartreuse. The text reads, "the sky is black on one side / keeping time / where the clouds disappear / crossing out the sun / one hand is up / to point / the horizon is too far / to see" and is beautifully enfolded and set in motion by the abstract yet tangible forms that sweep across the pages. & By using reduction woodcuts, the artist has used the image medium, and images themselves, to restate her words. Reduction woodcuts involve working with a single block, printing a color, cutting more of the block and printing this new reduced image over the first print, and so on. Despite the technical challenges of reduction woodcuts, she has succeeded in creating motion from a static medium. Her images are "keeping time" on page after page as we feel the sweep of the moving sky. This is Ms. Plimpton&#39;s ability for bringing the natural world to human grasp again manifest. <br>See an <A HREF= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/10279.jpg >Image.</A><br>

        Keeping Time

      [New York. 2009]. Artist's book, one of 15 copies, all on Tosa Washi paper, each signed and numbered by the artist / author, Sarah Plimpton. Page size: 15-5/8 x 11- 7/8 inches; plus letterpress printed text of poem on small sheet 6-3/8 x 5- 3/8 inches. 10pp. Bound: loose in grey paper wrappers and housed in grey custom-made cloth over boards clamshell box by Claudia Cohen, label printed in gold gilt on paper on spine with title and author's name. The book was set in Filosophia type and printed letterpress by Brad Ewing at The Grenfell Press. There are 10 reduction woodcuts printed in several shades of grey, black, magenta, blue, brown and chartreuse. The text reads, "the sky is black on one side / keeping time / where the clouds disappear / crossing out the sun / one hand is up / to point / the horizon is too far / to see" and is beautifully enfolded and set in motion by the abstract yet tangible forms that sweep across the pages. By using reduction woodcuts, the artist has used the image medium, and images themselves, to restate her words. Reduction woodcuts involve working with a single block, printing a color, cutting more of the block and printing this new reduced image over the first print, and so on. Despite the technical challenges of reduction woodcuts, she has succeeded in creating motion from a static medium. Her images are "keeping time" on page after page as we feel the sweep of the moving sky. This is Ms. Plimpton's ability for bringing the natural world to human grasp again manifest. See an Image.

        Notebook for a Transformation

      [New York. 2009]. Unique artist's book / wall hanging with bas-relief sculpture and manuscript notebook, collaged with images and text on each page, signed, with the title and date, by the artist / author on the back of bar from which the notebook hangs, "Sandra Jackman." Size: total dimensions of piece are 11 x 11.25 inches, about 2.5 inches deep; the notebook itself is 4 x 6 inches and including covers has 22pp. all of which have been painted and / or collaged. Bound: purchased spiral-bound notebook covered with hand-made paper and collaged with found materials on the front and painted gold with green and yellow on the back, suspended from a wood bar which had been painted and collaged and serves as base for white paper collage of head of angel / demon, with dried pieces suspended from other side of bar in beaded netting. While the bar has mounts on the reverse to facilitate hanging, it is also housed in a black cloth over boards fold- open box measuring 13 x 12 x 3 inches. The text is troubling. A fragment reads, "None the wiser each side dies believing in the sign..." and we understand that religious fanaticism has caused endless pain and destruction throughout human history. Images are not overt. Well-known religious paintings are covered, mutated, transformed, as is the message of goodness and love that marks most of the world's religions when fanaticism takes over. Disturbingly compelling, this angel and it's book are spectacular. See an Image.

        In The Distance

      Eugenie Torgerson Niles, MI: Eugenie Torgerson, 2009. UNIQUE ARTISTS' BOOK. Eugenie Torgerson is a book artist, photographer, printer, and illustrator from Michigan. She has been represented by art galleries across the U.S, and her work can be found in many corporate collections. In her artist's statement she says: "I build book and box forms with traditional bookbinding materials and methods. These sculptural objects contain my own pastel drawings and imagery generated from my own photographs. The stories they tell are contained in my words and the poetry of Kevin McCue. My subjects are the allure of the horizon, the power of the land, the experience of loss, and the sweetness of redemption." This exceptional book object comprises three individual parts. There is a small illustrated book with short poems that rests open on a box stand. The book and stand are covered by a box with a glass window on the top. Each object has been meticulously and creatively designed and produced using Ms. Torgerson's art, photography, and writing. The book is 3 inches wide x 4 inches tall x 3.5 inches thick. The poems are printed on vellum paper and coated with shellac, and the images are printed on various interesting papers. The book is bound in silver cloth with silver metal medallions on the front and back, and black and white beads around the edges. The spine is of brown suede and also has small beads sewn on. The book rests in a cradle at the top of its box stand. The stand is 5 inches tall and 9 x 10 inches at the base. The cradle is covered in green/gold cloth and decorated paper. There are the same small beads which are seen on the book cover, and there is also a medallion in the middle. The sides of the box have beautiful landscape images which are printed on Yupo synthetic material and waxed. The box base has two levels, one covered in orange cloth and the other with cloth in a gold and black design. The cover is 8 inches x 9 inches x 9 inches. The top and base are covered in decorated cloth. Each side is covered in brown cloth and has a landscape image printed on Yupo synthetic material and waxed. It has a window on top which allows one to look in at the book. This singular, stunning book object perfectly reflects Ms. Torgerson's creativity and artistry. In fine condition.

        Transitions. Chromogenic Prints by Judith Turner

      Vincent FitzGerald & Co. [New York: Vincent FitzGerald & Co.. 2009. Portfolio of ten chromogenic prints on metallic paper, one of 20 copies only, each print numbered and initialed in pencil on the reverse by the photographer, Judith Turner, who has also signed her name on the colophon in pencil. Page size: 4-15/16 x 4-15/16 inches, 10 individual prints. Bound: loose as issued and housed in clear plastic box with front cover sliding out by Just Plastic. Titlepage / colophon page letterpress printed by Kelly-Winterton in black on gray paper. Judith Turner, noted New York photographer, took these haunting images over a period of six months. They were photographed under water, chronicling the life and death of a plant. Noted for her images of architecture, published in trade books since 1979, and by the private press, Vincent FitzGerald & Co., since 1990, she brings a solidity of shape and concreteness to the transitory water lily. The use of Kodak's silver paper for these images presents an illusive shimmer to the plant in water - suggesting the play of sunlight that would occur in the plant's natural habitat. Ms. Turner's photography is held by many institutions including the Canadian Center for Architecture, the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, Japan, Tel Aviv Museum, Tel Aviv, Israel, and the International Center for Photography and the Brooklyn Museum, among others. She has received numerous awards and grants including in 2007 a Star of Design Award in Photography by the Design Center of New York and in 1994 the American Institute of Architects Award.

      [Octon, France]: Verdigris Press. 2009. One of 9 copies, from a total issue of 15 (6 with original copper plate), each copy numbered and signed in pencil by the artist on the colophon as well as initialing each plate. Page size: 9 x 11-3/4 inches; 20pp. Bound by Mark Lintott: loose in wrappers housed in slipcase covered with handmade papers screenprinted by Judith Rothchild in pink, blue and green showing Leonardo&#39;s larger sphere on the front cover and smaller sphere on the rear cover, black front wrapper embossed with circles, squares, and triangle, with white label printed in black with title and author, translator, and artist on front panel. Illustrated with six original full- page intaglio prints, endsheets with embosed spheres along bottom edge by Judith Rothchild. Ms. Rothchild has varied her print-making methods from her usual mezzotint to mezzotint with rocker, roulette and dry point all pulled by her from her original worked copper plates. The text has been set by Mark Lintott in Vendome Romain and printed by him on an Albion press and is taken from the 1883 Jean Paul Richter translation and edition of Leonardo&#39;s Notebooks, Capters 118-127. . Ms. Rothchild&#39;s intaglio prints are perfectly suited to Leonardo&#39;s text on light and shade. Her solid forms - whether a peach or skein of twine or wood cylinder - absorb light, reflect light, cast shadows, block light, in short, do all that they should to exemplify the text. <br>See an <A HREF= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/10192.jpg >Image.</A><br>

        Doors to the Saints: the edition

      Boston, MA. 2010. Artist&#39;s book, one of 20 editioned copies, 12 in each set, each saint behind a "door" or cover which opens to reveal an image of the woman, with the biography on the back of the image, printed on an Epson Stylus Pro 3800 printer in Lucida calligraphy 12 and 14point, on Rising Stonehenge white paper, 245gsm, signed by both artists, Mary McCarthy and Shirley Veenema, on the printed colophon page laid in at the back. Page size: 8.5 x 6 inches; each woman saint with the month of her martyrdom on black label collaged to front of folio booklet, the first page a "door" to open to the image of the saint, with her name and of whom she is patron saint, for example, January is Elizabeth Seton / Patron to the Loss of Parents or Children. Bound: each fascicle is hand-sewn and is composed of collaged images. The set of 12 women saints are housed in a tan cloth over boards box of tan Commodore KCT cloth over binders board, lined with Ingres paper that has collaged paper and acrylic paint bas relief of resembling heavy medieval door, fastened with matching tie closure and toggle on side of box. & Ms. McCarthy and Ms. Veenema created two unique three-dimensional books exploring the lives of women saints while visiting New Mexico in 2009 - with Ms. Veenema photographing doors and Ms. McCarthy exploring stories of the saints. They started working together to create the calendar / story of women&#39;s lives from the first to the twentieth century. For this edition, they photographed the two unique sets of three- dimensional books and collaged the printed images adding printed text where the hand-written text appeared to make this printed edition of 20. Each saint&#39;s image has additional handwork; each door is cut to reveal the underlying image of the saint. Art and dress of the time of each saint was used as reference for design images. Their stories vary. Some were treated badly because of their faith. Others were treated badly because they were women. Some were beautiful and wealthy and unwilling to succumb to the wishes of men. All were willing to sacrifice their life for their faith. Their stories are the stories of women&#39;s lives over the past two millenium. Among those included are Mother Seton, Brigid of Kildare, Joan of Arc, Mary Magdalene, Hildegarde of Bingen, Winefride, and Catherine of Siena. A fascinating and beautiful story of women&#39;s lives of the past two thousand years.

        TRINIDAD: 44 PHOTOGRAPHS

      London, England: Nobody Books, 2009. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. As New/No Dust Jacket, As Issued.. London, England: Nobody Books, 2009. Hardcover. As New/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. 45 pages. Artist Book. One of Stephen Gill&#39;s finest achievements. Limited Edition of 115 numbered and signed copies. The first and only edition. There is no ISBN. A stunningly beautiful production by Stephen Gill: Regular-sized volume format. Gill "scooped out" copies of Dr. Eric Williams&#39; "British Historians And The West Indies" (published in 1964 in Port-au-Prince, Trinidad), turning it into an integral element of his Artist Book. Photographs by Stephen Gill. They are 4 X 6 inch photographic color prints encased in three envelopes that are encased within the book. Original 4.5 X 6.5 inch etching mounted on the back. In publisher&#39;s original shrinkwrap. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Stephen Gill&#39;s memento-photographs of Trinidad, the former British colony in the West Indies. Readers of the imperious (but truly great) V. S. Naipaul will have a pretty good, if colored, idea of the island. Sir Vidia&#39;s "The Killings In Trinidad" is a high spot of modern literature, one of the greatest narrative essays of our time. If Naipaul&#39;s view of Trinidad is tragic, Stephen Gill&#39;s is ambiguous (starting with his blurred photographs&#39; muted and understated palette). The Artist Book shows the astonishing range of Gill&#39;s singular artistic project: Establishing a tangible relation between an object (the photograph) and its source/place (by merging it with a book about Trinidad that he found in Trinidad). Just as important, Gill&#39;s unpretentious and elegant gesture of complementing his photographs with an original work of art somehow honors a place that he knows will rightly never be "owned" by him (in the way that it once was by the British and in the way that photographs make us feel we "own" something, including a place). The book that Gill found is not just any book but a real scoop: Dr. Eric Williams just happens to be "the first Prime Minister of the country he has led successfully from colonialism to Independence" (Publisher&#39;s blurb on the Back Cover). A "must-have" title for Stephen Gill collectors. <b><i>This copy is one of the Limited Edition, indicated as such on the Back Limitation Page, and is very prominently and beautifully signed in pencil by Stephen Gill. It comes with an original 4.5 X 6.5 inch etching that is also very prominently and beautifully numbered, titled, and signed in pencil on recto by the photographer: "_ /115. Port of Prince. S. Gill". This title is now collectible. This is one of very few copies still available online, is still in the publisher&#39;s original shrinkwrap, and has absolutely no flaws, a pristine beauty. A very scarce signed copy thus. </b></i> 44 original color prints, 1 original etching. Stephen Gill&#39;s "Hackney Wick" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook".

        SUNDAY DRIVE

      Santa Fe, NM: Twin Palms Publishers, 2009. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. As New/No Dust Jacket, As Issued.. Santa Fe, NM: Twin Palms Publishers, 2009. Hardcover. As New/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. 48 pages. The photographer&#39;s third and posthumous collection. One of the most beautiful art photography books of the year 2009. Deluxe Clamshell-Box Edition of 25 numbered copies that are stamped by his estate with the photographer&#39;s facsimile signature. The edition is the smallest Twin Palms has ever produced and will not be reissued. An elegant production by Jack Woody: Oversize-volume format in oblong shape. Photographs by Luke Smalley. The way the photographs are sequenced tells the story entirely in pictures. There is no text. 10 X 8 inch original color print mounted on thick black boards and encased within the box. Black cloth clamshell box with titles embossed in front and on the spine. Stunningly beautiful endpapers. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Korea to the highest standards. In publisher&#39;s original shrinkwrap. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Luke Smalley&#39;s final collection, a touching "small-town America" photographic narrative, in its most collectible edition format. The publisher/designer, Jack Woody, has produced one of his most austerely beautiful Deluxe Editions ever using a predominantly black color scheme, an act of homage and mourning for the late photographer. Luke Smalley&#39;s facsimile signature, the estate, the clamshell box, and the mounting of the print are all rendered in black. "This poignant photo-novella tells the story of consequence when innocence takes a wrong turn" (Publisher&#39;s blurb). In a contemporary photographic world replete with "in-your-face", massive physiques, the photographer has produced a handsome body of work that holds back and hints at rather than shows off. The result is more appealing and more rewarding. Luke Smalley died under mysterious circumstances on May 17, 2009, prematurely ending a career that was on the verge of mainstream recognition. A "must-have" edition for Luke Smalley collectors. <b><i> This copy is Number 2, indicated as such on the Back Limitation Page, and it is very prominently and beautifully numbered and stamped with the photographer&#39;s facsimile signature: "Luke Smalley 2/25". We were able to obtain the lowest (and therefore most collectible) Numbers in the Series. Laid-in is a 10 X 8 inch original color print, "Cake", which shows a bare-chested man holding a dark chocolate cake, also numbered and stamped on verso: "2/25 Smalley Partnership Photograph by Luke Smalley". Smalley&#39;s facsimile signature is also stamped at the bottom. This edition is now highly collectible. This is one of very few copies of the Deluxe Edition still available online and has absolutely no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare estate-stamped copy thus. </b></i> 22 color plates, 2 endpaper doublespreads, 1 original color print. One of the most brilliant American photographers of our time. A flawless collectible copy.
