         Mámení [Delusion].; Edice naklon?ná rovina 1

      [Prague], 2012. Sewn balsa wood boards (30.5 × 19 cm), with original linocut sheets mounted to front and back; six gatherings consisting of 2-3 folio sheets. Signed by the author on the colophon. Very good, soft wooden boards with a few light marks. A surreal poetic meditation on time, space, and dream states, consisting of thirteen linocut illustrations each accompanied by four lines of text. According to the colophon, this is one of six copies that were produced from an original print run of twenty-three copies, which were originally printed in 1989. When the book was finally to be bound -- for some reason only in 2012 -- much of the print run had been dispersed or lost, leaving only six complete sets, which were bound incorporating the original linocut sheets. Zdirad ?ech, born 1949, is a contemporary Czech illustrator and graphic designer.

         Grundbegriffe der europäischen Geistesgeschichte - 10 Bände: Schönheit. Wahrheit. Eros. Tod. Krieg. Macht. Gerechtigkeit. Freiheit. Arbeit. Glück von Konrad Paul Liessmann (Herausgeber)

      UTB, 2012. 2012. Softcover. 12,3 x 8,1 x 19 cm. Die ‚Grundbegriffe der europäischen Geistesgeschichte‘ führen in konziser, historisch-systematischer Weise in eine Auswahl jener grundlegenden Begriffe ein, die das europäische Denken seit seinen Ursprüngen in der Antike bestimmten und begleiteten und deren Aktualität und Relevanz ungebrochen ist. Es sind Begriffe, die selbst eine oft widersprüchliche Geschichte haben, ohne die aber die Entfaltung der europäischen Kulturen nicht denkbar gewesen wäre. Je ein Band ist den folgenden Begriffen gewidmet: Schönheit (K.P. Liessmann), Wahrheit (R. Heinrich), Eros (A. Pechriggl), Tod (K. Lacina), Krieg (Chr. Stadler), Macht (W. Berger), Gerechtigkeit (E. Holzleithner), Freiheit (B. Recki), Arbeit (M. Füllsack), Glück (G. Schildhammer). Denken bedeutete in der europäischen Geschichte immer auch, sich mit diesen Begriffen auseinanderzusetzen, sie immer wieder zu deuten, zu verwerfen oder im Rückgriff darauf neue Perspektiven zu entwerfen. Die Sammelausgabe in 10 Bänden verschafft somit einen einzigartigen Überblick über zentrale Themen des europäischen Denkens, die sie jeweils fundiert entfaltet.

         WOOF Series

      [Melbourne : the artist], 2012. Suite of eight individual pieces, inkjet prints with acrylic ink and flocked glitter on archival paper. Each signed and numbered by the artist verso. Created in an edition of 5, this is the complete set, numbered 5/5. In this series of artworks, Harding takes covers of the newspaper magazine Good Weekend and subverts the cover images through his addition of text and imagery. The images in the series WOOF juxtapose mainstream masculine ideals, typified by the magazine covers of Good Weekend, with archetypical imagery of queer subcultures. The intentionally masked figures allude to notion of the 'closet' and its silencing effect on queer identity in mainstream media. The eight images in the series are titled POOL BOY, COACH, STR8 M8, COLLEGE GUY, PLAYER, BIKIE DUDE, RACING DRIVER, and PUP. Richard Harding is a print based artist and Senior Lecturer at the School of Art, RMIT University, Melbourne Australia. Within a print based art practice Harding explores the use of printmaking's intrinsic qualities of sameness and difference through the multiple with the merging of traditional and contemporary print methods. Harding's visual research is informed by architectural and queer theory utilising print media, analogue and digital, as vehicles for an ongoing art practice. He has produced two-dimensional, installation, video and object based works. Harding has been exhibiting for the past 25 years participating in solo and group exhibitions exhibitions in Australia and internationally. His work is held in public and private collections while exhibiting in various modes from public and commercial galleries, to artist run spaces and community-based environments. Harding has worked in industry based print workshops, like the Australian Print Workshop inc. as a studio supervisor, a custom printer and access artist. He has been involved with the national print organisation; Print Council of Australia as a committee member, Vice President and is currently the Secretary of the governing body.

         South Polar Times Limited Edition with commentary volume

      Folio Society, London 2012 - 2012 First Thus. 12 Fine Paperbacks. No inscriptions or bookplates. Fine magnetically sealing slipcase. Comes with a commentary volume which is Fine in Near Fine slipcase with very slight marks to front panel. A Folio Society facsimile edition, limited to 1,000 numbered copies of which this is number 741. The first complete facsimile has been created by The Folio Society in partnership with the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), the British Library and the Scott Polar Research Institute. At the start of the 20th century most of the far places of the world had been explored. Only the Polar regions, bound in ice and well-nigh impenetrable, remained to be conquered. Captain Scott led two expeditions to the Antarctic, on the ship Discovery in 1902 and the Terra Nova in 1911. He and his men waited out the long months of winter darkness, carrying out scientific research, and then used the brief summers to explore the uncharted continent, culminating in 1911 with their ill-fated journey to the South Pole, forever etched on the national consciousness. The South Polar Times was a magazine created by members of Captain Scott’s expeditions to entertain themselves during the four months of Antarctic winter. Typed up, and illustrated with paintings, sketches and photographs, each issue was read aloud to all hands. They contain a mixture of the ‘grave and gay’, serious reports on the weather or fauna interspersed with cartoons, songs and articles that gently poke fun at members of the expedition. Together the material gives us an unsurpassed sense of their community: legendary personalities such as Scott, Shackleton, Wilson and Cherry-Garrard, as well as scientists and ordinary seamen, all of whom had been inspired to travel to the furthest reaches of the earth and risk their lives. "Only one copy has been produced and this has been made as complete and perfect as possible under our circumstances, in the hope that the whole thing may be thoroughly well reproduced with all the illustrations when we get home" - Scott's journal. Scott’s intention has been fully realised in this painstaking and exact reproduction of all 12 issues of the South Polar Times. The original manuscripts, typed by the various editors, illustrated with drawings, watercolours and with photographs printed by Herbert Ponting in his Antarctic darkroom, have a thrilling immediacy. Opening the facsimile is to feel oneself in direct contact with the group of men who began the first great scientific exploration of Antarctica. It conveys an unsurpassed sense of the camaraderie that supported them, the patriotic vision that inspired them and the stoicism and courage that enabled them to endure and make light of terrible privations. The South Polar Times is a powerful piece of history that shows us a heroic age in incomparable detail. The editions are beautiful and interesting in their own right: Scott, Shackleton and Bowers were all extremely talented writers, while Wilson was an excellent artist, and many others tried their hand at silhouettes, sketches and cartoons, including Lieutenant Barnes and Leading Stoker Arthur Quartley. Our modern fascination with the magnificent, lonely beauty of Antarctica is the legacy of the words and images left to us by these pioneers.

         South Polar Times. [ With] . Commentary

      2012 - Facsimiles of the 12 original issues. Numerous illustrations. Large 8vo. London Includes the previously unpublished fourth volume. ?The owner of these volumes will possess an exact reproduction of the original ?South Polar Times? which appeared month by month during the winters of 1902-3, produced as they were for the sole edification of our small company of explorers in the Discovery, then held fast in the Antarctic Ice.? Thus begins Captain Scott's preface to the three volume facsimile of short stories, essays, caricatures, and drawings edited by Shackleton, which became a major diversion for the men on board the Discovery during the long sunless winter from 23rd April until 21st August, and which was continued during the Terra Nova expedition by Apsley Cherry-Garrard. This facsimile is an even closer copy of the original unique issues, collected in a neat buckram box. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         The Sound and the Fury Limited Edition with glossary and commentary

      Folio Society, London 2012 - 2012 First Thus. 2 Fine Hardbacks. No inscriptions or bookplates. Fine slipcase. Limited to 1,480 copies of which this is number 481, numbered by hand. Printed on Abbey Wove paper using 14 different colours of ink. Gilded top edge. Quarter-bound in vermilion goatskin leather. Blocked in gold. Paper sides printed letterpress with type ornaments designed by Russell Maret. 320 pages. The Commentary volume: bound in buckram. Blocked in gold. 232 pages. Both volumes presented in cloth-bound slipcase with inset leather titling label. Book size: 10¼" x 6½". In October 1928, the young writer William Faulkner tossed a recently completed manuscript to his friend and agent Ben Wasson: ‘Read this, Bud. It’s a real son-of-a-bitch This one’s the greatest I’ll ever write.’ Twenty years and several great novels later, Faulkner was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature for his 'powerful and artistically unique contribution to the modern American Novel'. The Sound and the Fury – searing, tragic, extraordinary in its innovation – is the most powerful of all. Indeed, this novel had become one of the most influential in 20th-century American literature. Faulkner knew that what made the book ‘a real son-of-a-bitch’ was what Wasson called ‘the sheer technical outrageousness and freshness of the Benjy section’. Faulkner wished to find a publisher whose attitude to printing matched the innovation of the writing – one prepared to print the novel in several colours. Nearly 100 years later, The Folio Society is fulfilling that vision with a new limited edition that is a landmark in literary publishing. The Sound and The Fury is acknowledged as one of the masterpieces of 20th-century literature. It takes the modernist narrative devices of stream-of-consciousness, time-shifts and multiple changes of viewpoint to an unprecedented level of sophistication. Faulkner was well aware that readers would find it difficult, and employed italic and roman type to convey its ‘unbroken-surfaced confusion’, but when his agent attempted to standardise and simplify the system this prompted an angry objection from Faulkner. He quickly jotted down eight time-levels in Benjy’s section, ‘just a few I recall’, and wished that it could be ‘printed the way it ought to be with different color types’, but he concluded pessimistically, ‘I don’t reckon it’ll ever be printed that way’. The Folio Society determined that it could be printed that way, and drew on the expertise of two noted Faulkner scholars to work on fulfilling Faulkner’s idea. Stephen M. Ross and Noel Polk undertook the painstaking task of identifying each different time-level to be coloured, while keeping the original italic/roman shifts. We can never know if this is exactly what Faulkner would have envisaged, but the result justifies his belief that coloured inks would allow readers to follow the strands of the novel more easily, without compromising the ‘thought-transference’ for which he argued so passionately. In his Nobel Prize acceptance speech, Faulkner stated that a writer’s sole purpose was to convey ‘the old verities and truths of the heart, the old universal truths lacking which any story is ephemeral and doomed – love and honor and pity and pride and compassion and sacrifice.’ The Sound and the Fury is filled with those emotions, and the reader cannot help but care deeply for Faulkner’s characters: for Quentin begging his sister not to marry ‘that blackguard’ Herbert Read, for the bleak self-centred cry of Mrs Compson, ‘I am a lady,’ and for Benjy waiting by the golf course just to hear the golfers call ‘caddie’, at which he begins to howl, mistaking it for his sister’s name.

         Raw: Steppenwolf: Photographs By Sandro Miller

      Chicago, IL: Sandro Miller Studios(2012). First Edition / First Printing. As New in No Dust Jacket, As Issued. Unpaginated. Artist Book. Collection of actors' portrait-photographs. One of the most beautiful Artist Books of our time. Limited Slipcased Edition, as stated. 25 copies were made in all. There is no ISBN. The Limited Edition is now rare. A magnificent handcrafted production by Sandro Miller: Oversize-volume format. The book weighs 10 pounds. Beige cloth boards with black titles embossed on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Sandro Miller. Text by The Steppenwolf Theatre actors, which appear in published form for the very first time. Original 8.5 X 8.5 inch photographic print encased in its own glassine sheet. Red satin ribbon marker. Hand-made hard board slipcase. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Chicago to the highest standards. The reproduction quality is exemplary in every respect, in particular the way its rich tonal range captures the dramatic lighting and skin texture of the subjects. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Sandro Miller's "RAW: Steppenwolf". His magnificent portraits of The Steppenwolf Theatre actors. This is the photographer's deeply personal homage to the OTHER great passion of his life, his first love being Irving Penn, who persuaded and inspired him to become a full-fledged photographer. Here is the sublime madness, carnal sensuality, and palpable excitement of The Steppenwolf Theatre Company of Chicago, which Sandro Miller considers to be "the world's greatest independent theatre company". The book is in two parts, "The Founders" and "The Players". These are NOT production shots, but viscerally powerful portraits of actors' faces, masks of Tragedy and Comedy: Joan Allen, Terry Kinney, John Mahoney, Martha Plimpton, Gary Sinise, Jim True-Frost, and Alan Wilder, among others. Ends with a brilliant Coda, "The Malkovich Sessions", devoted to John, THE iconic Steppenwolf actor. "RAW" brilliantly contrasts with and complements (it does not replace) an earlier book, Skrebneski's "Steppenwolf 25" (2001). The latter celebrates the company with tribute-essays by such luminaries as the great novelist Don DeLillo (whose plays were premiered by Steppenwolf), the theatre critic Richard Christiansen, Sam Shepard, and Kurt Vonnegut. Here, in valuable textual transcriptions, the actors get to speak, eloquently and movingly, for themselves and the company they created, a Chicago and American legend. An absolute "must-have" title for Sandro Miller and Steppenwolf collectors. This is a copy of the Limited Slipcased Edition, indicated as such on the title page, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in pencil by Sandro Miller. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. Laid-in is an original 8.5 X 8.5 inch photographic print, "Gary Sinise", also very prominently and beautifully stamped and signed on verso by the photographer. This Artist Book is a contemporary photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the Limited Slipcased Edition available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with black-and-white and color plates, 1 original print. Steppenwolf received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Bill Clinton, the highest honor the United States Government bestows on an individual or institution. One of the most brilliant photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER SANDRO MILLER TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).

        The Faerie Queene Limited Edition

      Folio Society, London 2012 - 2012 First Thus. Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Near Fine slipcase. Paper cover of slipcase unstuck in top rear left hand corner of the slipcase. 1,712 pages in total. Book Size: 10¾" x 8½". Bound in Wassa goatskin, blocked in gold. Ribbon markers. Limited to 1,000 copies of which this is number 102. Gilded top edges. Printed on watermarked laid paper. Presented in a wooden slipcase covered in Toile Vendôme, with a sliding tray in the base for ease of use. One of the most beautiful works of the Arts and Crafts Movement - a gorgeous facsimile of a piece of publishing history. Strictly limited to 1,000 numbered copies. The sixteenth century was the golden age of English poetry. Edmund Spenser burned to create an English equivalent to Virgil's Aeneid. Instead of lauding the Caesars, he would glorify Elizabeth, the Virgin Queen. Where Virgil connected Rome to the heroic past of Troy, Spenser would forge a link between Tudor England and the mythological age of King Arthur. The result was The Faerie Queene, a rich allegory which elevated Protestant virtues through the medium of a romantic, chivalric epic. Today the power of Spenser's story and the beauty of his verse still live in 'famous memory'. Rather as Spenser himself looked to 'antique times', the Arts and Crafts movement of the late-19th century looked back nostalgically to the Middle Ages. Walter Crane, an illustrator and associate of William Morris, was inspired by Edmund Spenser. He, after all, was a quintessentially English writer, dedicated to the noble aims of justice, honour and chivalry to which Crane himself, a socialist and romantic, was also committed. He illustrated the poem so lavishly that this sumptuous edition became a legend of book production in its own right. Born in London around 1552 to a family of modest means, Edmund Spenser was educated as a poor scholar at Pembroke College, Cambridge. He managed to gain work with the government, and served in Ireland, where he met the influential court favourite and poet, Sir Walter Raleigh. His own poetry, including The Faerie Queene, was written in between his official duties and he succeeded in gaining an introduction to read his works to the Queen in 1589. The Queen was so impressed with his epic that she granted Spenser an annual pension of £50. Elizabeth's chief minister Lord Burghley is supposed to have grumbled, 'What, all this for a song!' Spenser's Irish estate was burned during an attack in 1598. He left Ireland a year later and returned to London, where he died aged 47. His coffin was interred in Westminster Abbey close to Chaucer, an indication of the immense stature he had acquired. His inscription hails: 'Prince of Poets in his tyme; whose Divine Spirrit needs noe othir witnesse then the works which he left behinde him.' Each Book tells the adventure of a different knight, representing a virtue. Prince Arthur, who is searching for the Faerie Queene, acts as a common thread through the Books, assisting the various knights in their quests. Spenser wrote to Sir Walter Raleigh describing an ambitious plan of twelve Books, and perhaps even more. He completed six, which, at a total of 35,000 lines, makes The Faerie Queene the longest poem in the English language. Such is the quality of his poetry and storytelling that it is hard to think of The Faerie Queene as unfinished, rather it presents a series of adventures as timeless as any myth or legend.
