        A 14th century Ming Dynasty 1 kuan note : an example of the oldest extant paper currency

      [China : c.1375]. Printed during the reign (1368-1398) of the first Ming emperor, Emperor Zhu Yuanzhang (Ming Taizu), a paper note with the original cash value of a string of 1,000 copper coins, or 1 kuan. Woodblock printed in black ink on a sheet of grey mulberry paper, 340 x 220 mm; recto with the Chinese characters Da Ming tong xing bao chao ("Great Ming Circulating Treasure Certificate") at head; beneath this is a wide decorative border with dragon motif; at the centre, the denomination is written in two characters, yi guan ("one string"), with pictorial representations of ten piles of 100 copper coins and further registers of text including instructions for use and the phrase "To circulate forever", along with warnings of the severe punishments for counterfeiters and an offer of reward for those who inform against them; two authorising seals in vermilion ink, the first of which reads "Seal of the Treasure Note of the Great Ming Dynasty", and the second "Seal of the Office of the Superintendent of the Treasury"; verso with repeated pictorial woodblock print and one of the vermilion seals; original horizontal fold; some insignificant loss at left margin and a tiny perforation in the lower section, else a fine, strongly printed example; protected in an archival portfolio and housed in a custom clamshell box with calf title label lettered in gilt. The Chinese invention of paper money was revolutionary, and may be considered as the origin of our modern paper- and credit-based financial system. Although paper money is known to have been printed in China at various intervals from the ninth century onwards, it was not until the first reign of the Ming Dynasty - the last quarter of the fourteenth century - that an attempt was made to institute an entirely paper-based currency system. The symbolic significance of the first 1 kuan banknote that was issued around 1375 is emphasised by the fact that it featured as one the world-changing inventions in the recent British Museum project, A History of the World in 100 objects, selected by the Museum's Director, Neil MacGregor (the series was broadcast by BBC 4, London, 2010). Following the disintegration of the Mongol Empire around 1350, one of the first aims of the newly established Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), under its first Emperor Zhu Yuanzhang (Ming Taizu), was to re-introduce a stable currency. The unavailability of copper to cast coinage was one of the factors that led to the decision to introduce paper currency. Furthermore, metal coinage was impractical for large transactions - a "1000 cash" strand of circular coins with square holes for suspension was 1.5 metres in length. The first notes, printed around 1375, were for the denomination of 1 kuan ("1000 cash"); later, in 1389, notes with smaller values were printed (5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 cash). All notes were printed on mulberry paper, and the paper currency became known as fei qian - "flying money". With their abundance of textual information and instruction, the notes also reflected the Emperor Zhu Yuanzhang's ideal of a society based on the Confucian principles of education and literacy. From around 1425, due to the high rate of inflation that had been caused by the over-printing of notes, the use and importance of paper banknotes gradually diminished, and although notes remained in circulation until the mid sixteenth century the printing of paper currency ceased. Silver bullion (much of it from the Spanish mines in South and Central America, obtained through Chinese trade with the Spanish in Manila) became the main currency for the remainder of the Ming and most of the Qing periods. It is possible that virtually no examples of the first 1 kuan note would be extant, were it not for two serendipitous finds. The first, made during the Boxer Rebellion, was the discovery of a cache of notes in the base of an overthrown statue of Buddha; the second, and much more substantial find, was made in Peking in 1936, when a "bale" of the notes was uncovered during the demolition of one of the city walls; all of these notes were sold to curious passers-by.

        Purple flowers in a bouquet

      - offset lithograph, 2010, signed and numbered from the edition of 300, Publisher Kaikai Kiki Ltd., Tokyo. 71 x 71cm diameter Takashi Murakami is a Japanese artist combining the fine and the commercial art worlds. Often categorized alongside artists working within the tradition of Pop Art, such as Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, and Jeff Koons, Murakami's work has achieved a widespread level of fame beyond the art world. His innovative "Superflat" aesthetic—combining classical Japanese art with contemporary Japanese pop culture—has made him one of the most innovative artists working today. He continues to explore the links between traditional printmaking and Japanese styles of comics in post-war society in his highly graphic, vibrantly colored works. Despite its outward playfulness, Murakami's art acts as a cultural critique with subversive undertones hidden in its imagery. Born on February 1, 1962 in Tokyo, Japan, where he currently lives and works, Murakami has embraced commerce through the founding Kaikai Kiki Co., Ltd., an artist management agency and studio. With his popular collaboration with the fashion label Louis Vuitton, Murakami has established himself as a pioneer of promoting art as a brand. His work has been the subject of numerous exhibitions around the world, include those held at the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, Gagosian Gallery in London, the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, and the Versailles Palace.

Please note this is a heavy item and may incur extra shipping charges for international orders.; Blue paper covered boards, photo illustrated front cover, vol 3 part 1, corners sharp, no inscriptions, unmarked, b & w plates. The Indus Script is the writing system developed by the Indus Valley Civilization and it is the earliest form of writing known in the Indian subcontinent. The origin of this script is poorly understood: this writing system remains undeciphered, there is no agreement on the language it represents, no bilingual texts have been found thus far and its connection with Indian writing systems proper (e.g. Brahmi, Devanagari and Bengali script) is uncertain. This is the main reason why the Indus Valley Civilization is one of the least known of the important early civilizations of antiquity.

        Liber Obsidian Obscura.

      Dark Harvest Occult Publishers, NP [ Virginia Beach, VA ] 2010 - Hardcover. Octavo. 214pp. Black cloth titled in jet black on spine, a few b&w illustrations, black endpapers, with black foil stamping of the Downward Path Sigil on front cover. Hand numbered limited edition of 328 copies, not to be reprinted. This copy signed and sigilised on the front black endpaper in silver ink by the author. From the publisher: "A treatise in black magical philosophy and workings distilled from the most potent and obscure sources of modern left hand path origin. Liber Obsidian Obscura is a concentrated work of dark sorcery providing the black magician with a solid foundation in the theory behind black magic, as well as expanded paradigms and potent works of left handed sorcery. A dark grimoire synthesizing the most salient features of the black schools of magic. The development of the Left Hand path has stemmed from humankind’s promethean drive to conquer death and extend human awareness indefinitely into the most non-human of realms. To this end sorcerers have embraced practices considered abhorrent from the perspective of the right hand view. Ritual cannibalism, black magical evocation, left hand path sex magic and the dark kabala are a few of these forsaken areas of inquiry explained and developed in this text."

        A Timeline of Sorts

      Mount Horeb, Wisconsin: The Perishable Press, 2010. Mount Horeb, Wisconsin:: The Perishable Press,, 2010.. Edition of 80 copies. 26.5 x 18 cm (10 7/16 x 7 1/8"); 80 page surfaces (76 activated). Letterpress printed. Twenty illustrations by seven artists. Paragon-punched and Hickok-sewn. Press numbered. Signed by Hamady and dated 6 July 2017 on the colophon. Prospectus laid in.Hamady (7/6/1917): "These books ae pristine, as issued by the printer/publisher. Unlike the secondary market they are somehow of a better upbringing. Perishable Press: "Everyone has a timeline, future of it unknown, past usually burred and gone. This partial timeline was gleaned from the journal begun in 1963, continuing forty-eight years to the present. It is a recording of observations made in the quotidian world of day-to-day. Besides having someone kindly to talk to, the attractiveness of writing each morning about the previous day is not merely mind-clearing but mind-emptying as well."The antiquated printers' cliche 'feeling out of sorts' is long forgotten - sorts being the term applied to any particular character or letters, as distinguished from a complete font. So this book is made up of parts twittering from their own space and time. Sorts desultorily lifted because they seemed prescient, influential, memorable or just plain whimsical."The pressroom's terminal inventory produced a fine mish-mosh of varigated paper: thick and thin, light and dark, machinemade and handmade, including coup de grace Shadwell - all of which was hand-printed on the single-owner non-electric 1969 Vandercook SP-15."Certainly little would be discoverable at all but for Anna's stead persistence in transcription (nearly six-thousand pages to date). In fact, this book would not be here except for her gracious stenographic skill and loving, sometimes excited, encouragement."Colophon: "Another vanishing antiquated oddity, like handwriting or penmanship, is the non-electric analog calendar. historically, the aesthetic ne plus ultra has been the Serizawa, produced via the katazome stencil-dyeing technique. This is to point out that in the first signature, various months were laminated via-a-vis to remind of the many calendars simultaneously in use reaffirming an urgent need to know our location in space even though none are exactly accurate."From a certain standpoint, all these journal entries are like faerie tale crumbs dropped as a retrieving trail through the unknown forest. All these years of sprinkled momentaries contemplating discovery.

        Blood Meridian.

      Modern Library, New York 2010 - 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). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Mockingjay / The Final Book of 'The Hunger Games' (AUTOGRAPHED, NOT STAMPED)

      Scholastic Press, New York 2010 - States "First edition, September 2010." Number line complete 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 -- the first printing. Boards resist opening past 80 degrees -- as-new unread. Signed by the author Suzanne Collins in blue ink (name only) to the half-title page. Those seeking a set of signed copies of the three "Hunger Games" novels (and you shouldn't be deterred by the sneering defamation of America's Christians and Republicans and even America's president by the spoiled child star of the film series -- Jennifer Lawrence's latest, "Joy," failed to even earn back its production budget; she'll soon be the answer to a trivia question) have a decision to make when it comes to "Mockingjay." Author Collins reportedly hurt her hand shortly before embarking on the Mockingjay book tour, and was provided with a special rubber stamp with which she "stamp-signed" books on that tour. Unless and until that stamp or a good copy is put back in use, those "stamp-signed" copies are presumably somewhat limited in number, are being collected, and seem to be drawing about $250 apiece. We've also seen copies of Mockingjay "signed to a bookplate" at a wide range of prices, from $300 to $1,500. While there's nothing inherently wrong with "bookplated" copies, authors are often provided hundreds of bookplates which they sign while watching TV and mail back to the publisher, meaning the author has probably never held such a "plated" book in her hand. Also, bookplates bearing copyright dates prior to 2010 are almost certainly left over from earlier titles. Generally speaking, copies of "Mockingjay" actually autographed by the author directly to the page (as this one is) seem to be available only as part of a boxed set of three titles, priced in the thousands of dollars. We'll start this single autographed book at $890. Dystopian science fiction; Books-Into-Film; 390 pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Drukproef van Jan Cremer. Portret van een legende door Hans Dütting, met vele tientallen eigenhandige correcties van Jan Cremer, aangevuld met correspondentie en knipsels.

      Losbladig. Dubbelzijdig bedrukt A4. 555 p. 2010.l Computerprint, gedateerd '25-2-2010', van de in 2010 als herziene uitgave van Jan Cremer Documentatie (2005) verschenen monografie van Jan Cremer. De schrijver neemt deze drukproef op tientallen plaatsen onder handen: typefouten, namen, Spaanse teksten en jaartallen worden verbeterd. Hier en daar vult Cremer de tekst aan met nuttige informatie. Onderaan p. 51 schrijft hij: 'Naarmate Cremer bekender werd kwamen er ook de meest dwaze verhalen de kop opsteken. Mensen eigenden zich een rol in zijn boeken toe'. Ook verandert hij kleine details, zoals de locatie van een weeshuis: 'Duitsland' wordt 'Heelsum', een Gelders dorpje.Bijgevoegd worden uit de jaren 2007, 2008 en 2009 zes (soms zeer uitvoerige) brieven en drie ansichtkaarten van Jan Cremer aan Hans Dütting, die een flink pak fotokopieën en knipsels hebben begeleid: Jan Cremers eigen documentatie dus. Hierop noteert Cremer herhaaldelijk zijn commentaar: op een kopie van Willem Oltmans' Memoires 1968-1970 staat: 'Hans, kreeg gisteren deze memoires in handen waar ik weer veelvuldig in voorkom Hierbij de meest interessante'. Uit een brief van 26 juni 2009: 'Typerend: het verschil tussen de Nederlandse en de Vlaamse kritiek. NL: een en al jaloezie. Vlaanderen: vol lof en respect'. In een andere brief laat Cremer nietsverhullend zijn gedachten gaan over een goede biograaf: 'S. is nogal slordig [...] Ik zie veel meer in Hazeu die vast en zeker een gedegen biografie zou schrijven'.Dit materiaal illustreert prachtig de wisselwerking tussen Cremer en Dütting: hoe een biograaf te werk gaat en hoe de gebiografeerde hem af en toe bijstuurt en souffleert.

        Oman. Eloquence and Eternity.

      - [No place, printer or publisher, 2010]. Square large 4to (33 x 30.5 cm). Original red cloth, green endpapers, inside front cover with red silk, preserved in the original red box with lid, this with Omani coat-of-arms in white; pp. [24], [6], highly illustrated in colour in the text (including a portrait of His Majesty Sultan Quaboos Bin Said) and on 60 plates; near fine. Extremely rare first edition with English text, privately published and not for sale, signed by the photographer on title-page. Malcolm MacGregor, the MacGregor Clan Chief, is a landscape photographer, based in Scotland, who specialises in photographing the more remote regions of the world, using the old artistic photochemical method. 'He has travelled to many countries on assignment including Afghanistan, Africa, Asia, Georgia, the Balkans, Brittany, Iceland and the Hebridean islands of Scotland. But it is to Oman that he returns time and time again. In fact his photographic life has very much been tied up with Oman over the past ten years. In 2000 he began photographing for his book ‘Wilderness Oman’ made over a two year period tapping into the eclectic mix of desert, mountain and coastal landscapes. His genre is wilderness landscape photography, searching out aspects of nature that are unusual and off the beaten track. Since then he has returned almost on a yearly basis, in pursuit of Omani light. He has witnessed many golden moments where mountains and coastline are transformed by the rising sun for a few brief moments, before the light becomes too harsh. It is this transformative period at dawn and dusk that he tries to capture on camera. He has produced a portfolio ‘Light over Oman’ and most recently a photographic study comprising some 60 photographs called ‘Oman: Eloquence and Eternity’. His work has been reviewed in many photographic magazines, such as Amateur Photographer and Outdoor Photography, Oman Today and the Oman Daily Observer' (artist's statement). We were not able to locate a single copy of this book in any library or being offered for sale. - Another copy with text in Arabic is available as well.

        Wissenschaftliche Instrumente in ihrer Zeit. Vom 15. bis 19. Jahrhundert. [4 Bde. =komplett] Bd. 1: 15. und 16. Jahrhundert. Vom Astrolab zum mathematischen Besteck / Bd. 2: 17. Jahrhundert. Vom Compendium zum Einzelinstrument / Bd. 3: 18. Jahrhundert. Streben nach Genauigkeit in Zeit und Raum / Bd. 4: 19. Jahrhundert. Perfektion von Optik und Mechanik.

      Walther König, 2010 - 2508 S. Neuwertig, orig.verschweißt. Inhalt: Erster Band: 15. und 16. Jahrhundert. Vom Astrolab zum mathematischen Besteck: Als es im späten Mittelalter zum Aufblühen der astronomischen Studien kam, waren die Instrumente noch einfach und ohne Zierde. Nachdem die Herrscher im 16. Jahrhundert ihre Neigung zu den Wissenschaften entdeckten, enstanden im Umfeld der Höfe die berühmten Kunst- und Wunderkammern. Die wissenschaftlichen Instrumente dienten jetzt nicht mehr ausschließlich dem Zweck, sie mußten gleichzeitig Kunstgut sein. Zweiter Band: 17. Jahrhundert. Vom Compendium zum Einzelinstrument: Unter den im 17. Jahrhundert eingetretenen Veränderungen der Naturwissenschaften verloren vor allem die Astrolabien und Compendien an Bedeutung. An ihre Stelle traten eine ganze Reihe von Instrumenten mit einzelnen Funktionen. Im weiteren Verlauf des Jahrhunderts wurde die Mathematik an den meisten Instrumenten zur Grundlage der Funktion. Dritter Band: 18. Jahrhundert. Streben nach Genauigkeit in Zeit und Raum: Im 18. Jahrhundert gab die Entwicklung in der Optik dem Streben des Menschen nach Genauigkeit eine neue Facette. In Verbindung mit dem Wunsch Entferntes näher an sich heran-zubringen, entstanden optische Systeme, mit denen die Wunder der Natur im Kleinen sichtbar wurden. Das Aufkommen der praktischen Wissenschaften und der damit einhergehende Bedarf an Instrumenten bewirken ein Ringen von Prunk und Sachlichkeit im Instrumentenbau. Vierter Band: 19. Jahrhundert. Perfektion von Optik und Mechanik: Im Verlauf des 19. Jahrhunderts kam es immer öfter zu Begebenheiten, in denen der Fortschritt im Instrumentenbau die Möglichkeiten der Wissenschaften selbst erweiterte. Am Ende hatten sie die Naturwissenschaften zu einem Zulieferer von theoretischen Grundlagen für die angewandte Technik gewandelt, und Letztere übernahm die Führerschaft in der Weiterentwicklung der Instrumente. Was ihr Erscheinungsbild anging, war es frei von Tradition und beruhte nur noch auf einer soliden Konstruktion.
