        Die Diarien und Tagzettel des Kardinals Ernst Adalbert von Harrach (1598-1667). Herausgegeben von Katrin Keller und Alessandro Catalano. 7 Bde.

      Wien: Böhlau 2010.. zus 5844 S., zahlreiche farb. Abb. Kart. *neuwertig*. Die Diarien und Tagzettel des Kardinal-Erzbischofs von Prag, Ernst Adalbert von Harrach (1598-1667), die der Öffentlichkeit nun erstmals zugänglich gemacht werden, sind eines der umfangreichsten Selbstzeugnisse des 17. Jahrhunderts aus dem deutschsprachigen Raum. In ihrer inhaltlichen Multidimensionalität, ihrem Umfang und ihrer Aussagekraft sind sie vergleichbar mit prominenten Texten wie dem Tagebuch des Samuel Pepys, den Briefen der Lieselotte von der Pfalz oder den Memoiren des Kardinals de Retz. Die 54 überlieferten Jahrgänge, je zur Hälfte in deutscher bzw. italienischer Sprache verfasst, bilden eine bisher unbearbeitete, erstrangige Quelle für nahezu alle historisch arbeitenden Wissenschaften. Sie dokumentieren weit mehr als den Lebensweg und die Lebensräume eines Aristokraten als Amtsträger, im familiären Kontext oder in der adligen Gesellschaft der habsburgischen Erblande. Die Niederschriften eröffnen zugleich einen Blick auf die Geschichte der römischen Kurie - insbesondere die Konklave der Jahre 1644, 1655 und 1667 -, des Alten Reiches und Europas zwischen 1630 und 1667.

      London, Visual Editions, 2010.. Broschiert.. UK first edition (text in English), true first printing in Mint condition, signed by Jonathan Safran Foer on title page, housed in a stunning custom made palladium-plated, partially die-cut brass slipcase (nowhere else to buy!). Complete with die-cut signed(!), numbered (one of 250 only) and stamped poster (47.5 x 30.0 cm). and with original wrapping paper and a sample page from the book in Mint condition. This first printing is easily distinguishable from all further printings by the 3-paragraph Olafur Eliason quote - the later printings carry a New York Times blurp. Absolut mint copy of this outstanding book which is "as much a sculptural object as it is a work of masterful storytelling. With the story literally carved out of another book, "Tree of Codes" has a different die-cut on every single page. Telling the haunting story of an enormous last day of life, it is a book that looks every bit like it feels: unlike anything else. Visual Editions got turned down by every printer they approached - their stock line being the book you want to make just cannot be made. Thankfully, the publishers found "Die Keure" in Belgium who were up to the challenge and made the impossible possible. Over one year of writing, cutting and proto-typing later, comes "Tree of Codes", a book that defies all book conventions." (Visual Editions) "An extraordinary journey that activates the layers of time and space in the handling of a book and its heap of words. Jonathan Safran Foer deftly deploys scultural means to craft a truely compelling story." (Olafur Eliasson). Shipped bubble-wrapped in sturdy card-box. For us, this is the most beautiful book of the year! The first printing is sold out at the publishers. Metal slipcase is manufactured on order, so please allow 3 weeks til shippping. Additional photos gladly sent upon request. k6a

        Blood Meridian

      New York: Modern Library, 2010. First edition of the 25th Anniversary edition of the author's fifth novel, published by Modern Library. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by Cormac McCarthy on the half-title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket.Blood Meridian seems to me the authentic American apocalyptic novel, more relevant even in 2000 than it was fifteen years ago. The fulfilled renown of Moby-Dick and of As I Lay Dying is augmented by Blood Meridian, since Cormac McCarthy is the worthy disciple both of Melville and of Faulkner. I venture that no other living American novelist, not even Pynchon, has given us a book as strong and memorable as Blood Meridian." (Harold Bloom) McCarthy can only be compared with our greatest writers, with Melville and Faulkner, and this is his masterpiece" (Michael Herr)

        ART OF INTAGLIO. PRODUCED ON A LETTERPRESS WITH A COLLECTION OF TWELVE PRINTS OF 18TH CENTURY LONDON TRADESMEN'S CARDS with SCHLOCKER & THE FISHES.|THE

      Bird & Bull Press Newtown, PA: Bird & Bull Press, 2010. quarter Morocco and Japanese cloth, slipcase. 100094|103136|62199|71716/NE. Bird & Bull Press. 8vo. quarter Morocco and Japanese cloth, slipcase. 33, 12 plates, 12 pages. Limited to 115 numbered copies. Engravings and etchings (intaglios) are printed on special presses which exert the far greater pressure needed for this kind of printing."I had been told that intaglio could not be printed satisfactorily on a letterpress, which is generally true. But in 2009 I tried my hand, printing two intaglio plates successfully by letterpress, albeit not very large ones. In this new book I have printed by letterpress, twelve intaglio plates, some as large as 5" x 6.5".These images were made from Ambrose Heal's privately published 1925 London Tradesmen's Cards of the Eighteenth Century, which showed 101 collotype prints of old engravings advertising the wares, goods and services offered about 250 years ago. I have been attracted to these "cards"-they are really papers of differing sizes-ever since I got Heal's book fifteen years ago. Thanks to my recent introduction to intaglio, I have returned twelve of these prints to their original 18th century state: you can run your finger over the print and feel the image. Students and collectors of ephemera are acquainted with these cards, but for those who are not, some of Heal's comments may enlighten:...To anyone with a liking for old things the Trade Card must make an irresistible appeal. It is so convincingly of its own time....The old signs that hung over the ship doors and are reproduced on the Traders' Cards are of great antiquity and interest. The names of the old streets, many of which have long since been swept away, such as'Knaves' Acre,' 'Rosemary Lane,' 'Wendegaynlane,' take one's imagination quite apart from their historical or topographical connections....The lettering is invariably well drawn and well spaced and the designing of the devices, if sometimes crude, is always direct and interesting.They reflect the art of the engraver through two centuries. A foeword and texts on the Origin of Intaglio, The Process, and background information on Heal and his book, precede the twelve engravings. But wait-There's More! On an entirely unrelated subject, a 16-page addition relates an unforgettable event in the early life of Henry Morris, entitled Schlocker & The Fishes, thus making this book my first dos-a-dos binding. This brief account is illustraded with two full-page wood engravings by Wesley Bates. Such accounts generally become booklets but I dislike the impermanence of the booklet, and have long wanted to see this in print.

        Joe Average

      Victoria, Australia, 2010. Square 32mo. (14)pp., accordionfold, decorated on both sides of the page. An original artist's book by Jennifer Gibney, with hand-drawn text and pen illustrations in black, sepia, and sanguine ink, housed within a hand-painted and decorated wooden box. The story concerns a jester-like character who is overwhelmed by the pressures of life until he opens a book and "opens a dream," escaping into the endless possibilities of his imagination. On the lid of the box is a painting of Joe Average with the word "ordinary" repeated over and over on his clothing and hat, trapped beneath a lattice of textured brass strips. A porcelain sculpture of Joe Average, in the same pose as on the illustration on the lid of the box, is laid into the box on top of the book. Gibney is both a painter and a sculptor, with a background in graphics and book illustration, and she drew on all of these areas of expertise to create this unusual book. With a colophon card laid in, signed by the author. Extremely fine.

        Der Tod und die Mädchen. 25 Grafiken.

      Bochum, Selbstvlg., 2010 - Kart.-Schachtel (33 x 25 cm), 1 Titelblatt, 25 lose Blätter, Tadell Eins von 15 Exemplaren (Vom Künstler auf dem Titelblatt signiert und num.). Auf 25 schwarz/weiss Grafiken wird das wortlose Rendevouz zwischen dem Tod (Skelett) und der verführerischen jungen Frau gezeigt. Das traditionelle Sujet bekannt aus der Malerei von Hans Baldung Grien (1517) bis Herwig Zens (1990) oder als Skultur beim Luzerner Rolf Brem, fand auch in der Musik eingang. Zum bekanntesten gehört wohl das Streichquartett Nr. 14 d-Moll D 810 «Der Tod und das Mädchen» von Franz Schubert.Auch in der Literatur wird dieses Thema immer aufgegriffen, sei es bei Elfriede,Jelinek «Der Tod und das Mädchen I - V Prinzessinnendramen» ebenso in Polanskis Film «Death and the Maiden», 1994, nach dem Theaterstück von Ariel Dorfman.Das seltsame Paar benimmt sich wie es Liebende tun, in allen Facetten des uns bekannten entzückenden Spiels. Ein eifriges Werben des knochigen Galans um das blühende Leben findet auf der 2 dimensionalen Bühne statt.Das Treiben findet wie wir alle wissen und so gerne verdrängen ? gerade wenn man Jung ist ? eine radikales Ende.Nach dem ?Totentanz von Basel? (1981), ?Noch ein Totentanz? (1989), ?Totentanz 2008?, ?Ein ländlicher Totentanz? (ebenfalls 2008), ?Ein städtischer Totentanz? (Mitte 2009) und «Ein Totentanz der Berge» hat der ausserordentlich produktive Bochumer Künstler Peter Beckmann wieder einen neuen Totentanz gestaltet.Peter Beckmann, (geb. 1953), Bochum, Lehrer, Grafiker und Künstler (Autodiakt), zahlreiche Ausstellungen, arbeitet mit Kopiermaschine und Faxgerät und Computer. 1200 gr.

        Le dessin hors papier

      Publications de la Sorbonne - Paris 2010. 1 Volume/1. -- Comme Neuf – Broché cousu. Format in-4° ( 27 x 20 cm )( 972 gr ). ------- 235 pages. *************** "" Ce que nous appelons ici "dessin hors papier" correspond à toutes les pratiques graphiques contemporaines qui suspendent l'usage du papier comme support d'un dessin. Ces pratiques ne sont certes pas nouvelles. mais suscitent de nos jours un incontestable regain d'intérêt. Ainsi, tout ou presque peut servir de subjectile aux desseins des artistes: le bleu du ciel. le café noir dans sa tasse, la peau des hommes et des animaux, un parking de supermarché, un rouleau de film super-huit, les écrans au format variable de nos nombreux appareils. le bouillon de culture d'un biologiste. Mais toutes ces excursions hors papier ne sont pas simple extension du domaine de la plume et du crayon, elles sont grosses de significations multiples qu'il convient d'analyser. C'est ce que propose cet ouvrage en réunissant les textes d'artistes, de chercheurs et de critiques, pour lesquels le dessin questionne son mode d'inscription dans le réel : c'est le cas de Convert ou d'Oppenheim. de Picasso. de Delvoye. ou encore de Barney. Achour. Moninot et de tant d'autres. Mais s'émanciper du papier n'est souvent qu'un moment de rupture dans la création d'une œuvre qui n'interdit nullement le carnet de croquis, le tirage d'une photo ou la confection d'un livre d'artiste. C'est donc moins l'abandon (d'ailleurs illusoire) du papier qui intéresse ici les auteurs, que la pertinence poïétique d'un phénomène saillant de la création actuelle.

        Les ordres religieux-militaires en Arménie cilicienne : Templiers, hospitaliers, teutoniques & Arméniens à l'époque des croisades

      Geuthner - Paris 2010. 1 Volume/1. -- Comme Neuf -- Broché collé. Format in-8°( 24 x 15,5 cm )( 1325 gr ). ------- IV-890 pages . ******************** '' Les trois principaux ordres religieux-militaires (hospitaliers, templiers et teutoniques) s'implantèrent en Arménie cilicienne aux XIIe-XIIIe siècles et continuèrent à entretenir des relations avec les souverains de ce royaume jusqu'à la chute de celui-ci, en 1375. Chaque ordre mena sa propre politique dans l'Etat arménien, s'impliquant à la fois au niveau local et international. Les frères participèrent activement à la défense du pays tant sur le plan militaire que diplomatique. Leurs commanderies, essentiellement rurales, incluaient des forteresses à des emplacements stratégiques. La structure interne de leurs bailliages d'Arménie fut relativement semblable à celle des autres bailliages orientaux. Les commandeurs se substituèrent aux seigneurs dans certaines zones et furent régulièrement présents à la cour royale, mais leur rôle auprès des dirigeants arméniens ne peut être assimilable à celui de vassaux. Les valeurs spirituelles et guerrières des frères convainquirent plusieurs rois et princes arméniens d'entrer dans la confraternité de leurs ordres et ce, malgré la désapprobation du haut clergé arménien. En dehors de ce pays, les ordres religieux-militaires entretinrent également des relations protéiformes avec les Arméniens dans les Etats latins du Levant.

Format in-4°( 29,5 x 25 cm )( 3025 gr ) . -------- 592 pages . ************** '' Ce livre invite à une découverte des racines de l'art médical et à son évolution à travers les âges. L'histoire, la science, l'art, les représentations symboliques et spirituelles du monde sont évoqués grâce à la réunion de 250 oeuvres dont plusieurs n'ont jamais été présentées au grand public. Plus d'une trentaine de prestigieuses institutions de toute l'Europe et de la Suisse se sont associées à la Fondation Martin Bodmer pour une exposition qui court de l'Antiquité au XVIIe siècle, d'Hippocrate à Hildegarde de Bingen jusqu'à William Harvey et à Descartes. Après les pratiques médico-chirurgicales des anciennes Égypte et Mésopotamie, les origines de la médecine moderne sont évoquées, ainsi que la transmission du savoir médical de l'Antiquité grecque : par les Nestoriens, les mondes arabe et juif, et les copistes des monastères. Au Moyen Âge, l'herbier médiéval atteste l'attachement à la nature les astres et l'Homme zodiacal président à la saignée. Diverses influences modulent l'art de soigner : conceptions religieuses, symbolisme et arithmologie, magie, philosophie naturelle, physique des éléments, connaissances expérimentales et enseignement. Parallèlement à la science des proportions, l'anatomie réinventée devient quête et expression de beauté. Basée sur la tradition, la médecine des XVIe et XVIIe siècles est placée sous l'influence de la Renaissance. Hors du temps, la médecine asiatique est abordée dans sa diversité et sa philosophie.

        Corpus Christianorum. Lexicon Latinitatis Medii Aevi Regni Legionis (s. VIII-1230) imperfectum Léxico latinorromance del reino de León (s. VIII-1230)

      Turnhout Brepols 2010 - Hardback, LXXVII+805 p., 155 x 245 mm. ISBN 9782503534473. Published in 2010, this Latin-Spanish lexicon, or more precisely Latin-Romance-Spanish, studies the vocabulary of historiographical and diplomatic texts written in the kingdom of León - with the exception of Galicia - between the eighth century and 1230, the date of the definitive union between the kingdoms of León and Castille. Each entry provides all the written variants of the term in question, its etymology, its meaning or meanings, numerous examples presented in relatively extended contexts, and thorough commentaries and linguistic and historical notes. As well as constituting an indispensable tool for anyone interested in the history of the kingdom of León, it also of wider interest, especially linguistic. Indeed, the texts analysed are written in a language that may be described as both 'Latino-Romance' and 'diplomatic medieval Latin' (Cf. Introduction, p. LXIII). Paru en 2010, ce lexique latin-espagnol, ou plus précisément latino-roman-espagnol, étudie le vocabulaire des textes historiographiques et surtout diplomatiques écrits dans le royaume de León - à l'exception de la Galice ', entre le VIIIe siècle et 1230, date de l'union définitive entre les royaumes de León et de Castille. Chaque article fournit toutes les variantes graphiques du terme concerné, son étymologie, sa ou ses significations, de nombreux exemples, présentés dans des contextes relativement étendus, des commentaires et notes linguistiques et historiques développés. Il s'agit d'un instrument de travail qui sera très utile tant à l'historien qu'au linguiste. La inmensa mayoría de los países de Europa Occidental han publicado o están publicando su léxico latino-medieval, importantísimo para cualesquiera estudios medievales. En la Península Ibérica la elaboración y publicación de léxicos latino-medievales se encuentran en un estado incipiente. El Lexicon Latinitatis Medii Aevi Castellae et Legionis (LELMACEL) viene a completar ese vacío. Consiste en la elaboración y redacción de un diccionario latino-romance a partir de los textos escritos en latín, o mayoritariamente en latín, desde los comienzos de la Reconquista hasta 1230 en los territorios que pertenecieron a los reinos asturleonés y castellano durante ese período. De dichos territorios se ha excluido la zona gallega y la portuguesa. El corpus del diccionario está formado tanto por las obras más o menos literarias, principalmente crónicas, como por los documentos notariales compuestos en esos dos reinos. Como particularidades del trabajo en el LELMACEL hay que destacar las siguientes: se trabaja sobre un corpus de textos mayoritariamente informatizado; en el estudio de los lemmata se procede por campos léxicos, no por orden alfabético; se recogen todos los términos del corpus base y todos sus significados. Sus entradas incluyen la siguiente información: todas las formas gráficas del vocablo, reservando la más frecuente para la entrada; etimología; significado(s); ejemplos con suficiente contexto de cada uno de los valores del término, recogiendo siempre el más antiguo; indicación del uso toponímico o antroponímico del vocablo con ejemplos; notas informativas, cuando sea preciso; iniciales del redactor de la entrada lexicográfica.

Accompanied by an original B/W print (29x29cm), signed, entitled and numbered by the artist in pencil on dorso. In blue clothbound cardboard case, 96 images, copy 22/90. Minor marks of wear on the clothbound case. Case interior (book with blue clothbound cover) and artist's print in excellent conditions. Product Description:Special edition of Flor Garduño's Trilogy, accompanied by an original B/W print signed by the artist by pencil on dorso. It is a magical land that where Flor Garduño moves, holding her camera. A land reminiscent of Mexico, where she was born; a land pervaded by myths and legends; a land plunged into a voluptuous and sensual nature, kissed by the sun of those exotic and ancestral places. Trilogy is a collection of the works Garduño realized throughout many years of photography between Mexico and Europe. Her great and magnificent visual production develops through a "dance" in three movements. The overture is Bestiarium, in which real and fictional images of enchanted animals come to life as metaphors of our dreams and passions. Then we have Fantastic women, a celebration of the feminine universe and of the mystery and sensuality that spring from the female body. The dance ends with Silent natures, where Garduño contemplates wilderness because, quoting the photographer herself, "whenever I think of Silent natures, I must confess that I created these photographs for myself, to maintain my playful spirit throughout all these years." Flor Garduño was born in Mexico and studied visual arts at the Academy of San Carlos, where she focused on the search for the structural aspects of form and space. She gave up her studies to work as a darkroom assistant for Manuel Álvarez Bravo, one of Mexico's most prestigious photographers. Renowned worldwide, Garduño has been awarded many prizes thanks to her works that have been exposed and published all over the world. Trilogy is the final consecration of thirty years of the photographer's activity.

        Joe Average.

      Victoria, Australia 2010 - Square 32mo. (14)pp., accordionfold, decorated on both sides of the page. An original artist's book by Jennifer Gibney, with hand-drawn text and pen illustrations in black, sepia, and sanguine ink, housed within a hand-painted and decorated wooden box. The story concerns a jester-like character who is overwhelmed by the pressures of life until he opens a book and "opens a dream," escaping into the endless possibilities of his imagination. On the lid of the box is a painting of Joe Average with the word "ordinary" repeated over and over on his clothing and hat, trapped beneath a lattice of textured brass strips. A porcelain sculpture of Joe Average, in the same pose as on the illustration on the lid of the box, is laid into the box on top of the book. Gibney is both a painter and a sculptor, with a background in graphics and book illustration, and she drew on all of these areas of expertise to create this unusual book. With a colophon card laid in, signed by the author. Extremely fine.

        Nacre. Six Poems by Ruth Fainlight. Eight Mezzotints by Judith Rothchild.

      Verdigris Press, Octon, France 2010 - First Edition, signed limited edition, one of 42 copies only, from a total edition of 50 (8 deluxe copies with one of the original copper plates) all on Hahnemulhe paper, each hand-numbered and signed by the author, Ruth Fainlight, and the artist, Judith Rothchild. Page size: 8-1/2 x 9-7/8 inches; 20pp. + colophon. Bound by Mark Lintott: leporello style with wrap- around boards of marbled paper made by Judith Rothchild over boards in grey with hints of deep pink and pale blue, raspberry-colored linen hinges, title, author, artist, and press printed in black in the spine, title on front panel, housed in custom-made matching grey paper over boards slipcase. The text has been hand set and printed letterpress in Vendome Romain on an Albion press of 1867 by Mark Lintott. The artist herself printed her mezzotints. The text has debossing on the title page with the title, NACRE, repeated twice in blind on either side of the printed title. The shaped colophon is debossed in the form of a cowrie shell. Noted American poet (living in London), Ruth Fainlight, has contributed six poems; the first "Pearls" has four sections; the fifth, "Clam Chowder" has two sections. Judith Rothchild has contributed eight mezzotints relating to or inspiring Ms. Fainlight's verse. The book was collaboration with each artist reacting and creating to her friend's work. The verse speculates on the beauty of the pearl and how it has been valued throughout the ages - reserved for the wealthy and powerful. Ms. Fainlight asks (in "Pearls") "Entire villages holding their breath: how many divers' lives lost in the oyster beds for a royal crown?" The first mezzotint certainly captures the mysterious, dark, lustrous glamour of this "crystalline substance iridescent nacre" and the interplay between text and image is set from this beginning. As Ms. Fainlight's text turns to the sensuous associations of love, oysters - with great subtlety - the images take on a sensuality of their own. A stunning book that is at once provocative, intimate, and philosophical and more than a bit Proustian. An object as simple as a cowrie shell button causes the author to recall her mother's treasured memory. The reader / viewer is compelled to join in this lovely remembrance - and perhaps recall something of one's own. See an Image. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Red Cross

      [Bever, Switzerland]. 2010. Artist's book, one of 13 copies only, all on Epson Archival Matte paper, signed by the artist, Viola Kaeumlen and numbered on the colophon. Page size: 8-1/16 x 5-11/16 inches; 54pp. Bound by the artist: white cloth over boards printed in red with title and author on spine and front panel. Each copy of this limited edition is housed in a hand-stitched tan cloth copy of old Red Cross Aid Bag with copy of World War II Red Cross hand-stitched on front made by the students of the "Ufficina" in Samedan, Switzerland - an institution that provides work for handicapped people. The Red Cross Aid Bag is laid into a stainless steel box with lid 9-7/8 x 7-1/4 inches with the Red Cross emblem outlined in double broken brown line, title and author printed in outlined letters on each of the long sides. The artist's statement / colophon reveals that the artist / author, on finding her grandfather's pocket watch which had been returned to her grandmother after his death in World War I was moved to honor the Red Cross. Her grandfather's watch, with the face damaged, the hands missing, eerily symbolized the destructive power of war. The International Red Cross had returned the watch, reassuring the owner's widow that her husband's remains had been taken care of in a humane way amid the turmoil of war. On a more immediate note, the International Red Cross had been instrumental in helping the artist's husband leave conflict-torn Angola. Ms. Kaumlen visited the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum in Geneva, taking photographs which are here combined with her own writings as well as religious and historical texts. The artist collaged the photographs, texts, her grandfather's watch and other elements and printed all digitally, using Ambulance Shotgun as font for quotations and texts and Helvetica fonts for introduction and colophon. This is a moving homage to the International Red Cross with stunning images. See an Image.
