        The Opossum: A Specimen Book

      Philadelphia, Pennsylvania:: Shandy Press,, 2015.. Edition of 25. 6 x 8"; 62 pages. Letterpress printed, using polymer plates, on a Vandercook Proofing Press. Typeface is Hoefler. Text paper is Schiller. Paper for prints is Zerkall. Tip-ins. Bound in unbleached abaca handmade by Nicole Donnelly. Signed and numbered by the artist. Susan Viguers: "The Opossum is a specimen book in various ways. Most obviously, it is about a particular animal, the Virginia opossum. Conceived in the tradition of the type specimen book, it is a compendium of voices/observations about the opossum. The preface to the book consists of a statement by John D. Godman in 1831: 'Perhaps nothing can more clearly demonstrate the impatience of the human mind, and the reluctance with which men yield to the hard necessity of carefully observing the operations of nature, than the history of this animal.' The primary text, my own story of encounters with the opossum, is surrounded by passages from commentators from the 17th century to the present. I am interested in the fantastical as much as the actual. "The book is also an exploration into the history of illustrations of the opossum, as well as a collection of printmaking (and art making) processes in service of illustrating the opossum. Original prints representing various media by nine artists are tipped in as are reproductions of various images, primarily engravings from 18th and 19th century books. Credits, media, and discussion relating to the prints are included with thumbnails toward the end of the book. "Finally, it is a sampling of historical features of the book: the 18th and 19th century exuberant title page, the use of the golden section for page design, the tradition of commentary text surrounding a primary text, and the limp-vellum type binding.

        The Golden Ass

      Folio Society (Limited Editions), 2015 Fine copy in fine slipcase. A new limited edition of Apuleius' enormously entertaining and immensely influential novel, featuring exuberant illustrations by Quentin Blake and an introduction by James Wood. Each copy is signed and numbered by the artist. 256 pages; 11 1/4" by 8 1/2"; 46 illustrations by Quentin Blake; limited to 1,000 copies; set in Poliphilus and Bembo; printed on Old Mill Stucco; bound in Indian goatskin blocked in gold foil; gilded top edge; gold-blocked slipcase.From publisher: "The Golden Ass tells the tale of a certain Lucius, a young man who ?" rather like his creator ?" leads an itinerant life full of action and incident which ultimately lands him in trouble. His curiosity to discover the secrets of witchcraft (the biographical echoes continue) results in his metamorphosis into an ass. The novel then follows its unfortunate hero through a series of largely bruising, humiliating and hilarious exploits until he is restored to human form through the intervention of the goddess Isis. This meandering plot is punctuated with a number of inserted stories which establish close thematic parallels with the main narrative. The most substantial and best known of these is the tale of Cupid and Psyche, in which Psyche's disastrous inquisitiveness, subsequent sufferings and eventual salvation echo Lucius' story. In the novel's final double twist, Lucius' adventures are reinterpreted in a religious and providential light, while the identity of the narrator apparently switches from Lucius to Apuleius himself ?" the novel's final transformation.The Golden Ass is the only Latin novel to survive in its entirety. Episodic in construction, it takes larger-than-life characters on extraordinary adventures at breakneck speed, prefiguring the picaresque worlds of Fielding's Tom Jones, Defoe's Moll Flanders and Prévost's Manon Lescaut. Or, before them, Cervantes and the first modern novel, Don Quixote.It is hard to imagine an artist better suited to the frenetic pace of Apuleius' narrative and its exquisite blend of wit, cruelty and humaneness than Quentin Blake. In his illustrations for this edition he captures the exuberant quality of the text while conveying all its variety and complexity of tone. His sequence of images depicting Lucius' transformation into the ass ?" as the hapless hero moves from hopeful anticipation to panic and horror ?" is uproariously funny. The central story-within-the-story of Cupid and Psyche is the subject of ten illustrations of extraordinary range, shifting between violence, eroticism and gentle humour. And in a supremely witty twist worthy of Apuleius himself, Quentin Blake has a sceptical reader turning in incredulity from the book to a slightly discomfited ass peering over his shoulder. Where in the recent limited edition of Voltaire's Candide Quentin Blake demonstrated his sharp satirical eye, and in Fifty Fables of La Fontaine displayed effortlessly expressive powers of characterisation, The Golden Ass shows off his full comic range, as he shifts mesmerizingly through the book's vagaries of mood and content.James Wood is Professor of the Practice of Literary Criticism at Harvard University and a staff writer at The New Yorker magazine. He has been described by Martin Amis as 'a marvellous critic, one of the few remaining'. His specially commissioned introduction for this limited edition of The Golden Ass offers a subtle and searching analysis of Apuleius' comic power and makes a compelling case for the work's enduring impact and relevance."

        Reading Emerson's 'Circles'

      Portland, Oregon:: Triangular Press,, 2015.. Edition of 30. 16 x 20"; 24 pages. Hand-written texts pressure-printed onto tissue paper. Laser-printed texts printed onto UV-Ultra. Covers: printed Zerkall paper dry-mounted between batiste. Bound with wooden spine and bulldog clips. Wrapper constructed of book cloth and book board. Signed and numbered on the colophon by the artist. Barbara Tetenbaum: "During a 2-week residency at Caldera, near Sisters, Oregon, I rewrote Ralph Waldo Emerson's essay 'Circles' using a special pen that leaves a hard raised mark if you go slowly enough. I wrote out 23 pages which took nearly 30 hours. I did this to accomplish three things: to force myself to read Emerson's essay very slowly; to record distractions and thoughts that I had while reading his words; to create a surface that I would later use to print an edition of artist books using a technique I developed and call 'Pressure Printing.' Pressure printing uses a low relief plate (my Emerson writings) which is put underneath the paper to be printed (tissue paper) and then run through the letterpress over a type-high inked block. This allows the low relief image to grab more or less ink from the block as it rolls over it. I have now printed an edition of 30 copies of all the pages I wrote out. My thoughts and distractions will be laser printed on transparent paper and interleaved within the book to show that reading is rarely a linear experience, but much fuller experience unique to the reader.

Text printed on Arches 88 Silk Screen paper made in France; Myriad Pro font. Images printed on photographic paper. Presented in a lacquered wood and curved composite box 11 x 8 x 4" made by craftsmakers in Hanoi, Vietnam. Box in a handmade silk bag made by Vietnamese-American women working at the Southeast Asian Coalition in Worcester, Massachusetts. Silk cloth handwoven in Van Village near Hanoi. Signed and numbered by the artist. Subjects covered include "Agent Orange: A War Story" by C. David Thomas; "Tiger Lillies in Asia"; "Agent Orange Facts"; "American Veterans Law Suit Against the Manufacturers of Agent Orange"; " Vietnamese Victims Class Action Lawsuit in U. S. Courts" Prospectus: "The subject of this sixty-one page artist's book is Agent Orange, the deadly dioxin contaminated defoliant used in Vietnam between 1961 and 1971… "'Agent Orange' refers to a blend of tactical herbicides the U.S. military sprayed in the jungles of Vietnam and around the Korean demilitarized zone to remove trees and dense tropical foliage that provided enemy cover and to take away food supplies for the enemy. Herbicides were also used by the U.S. military to defoliate military facilities in the U.S. and in other countries as far back as the 1950s. Today, dioxin is known as one of the most deadly synthetic chemicals. Three ounces of dioxin placed in the New York City drinking water supply could wipe out the city's entire population. (Russell Mokhiber, The Multinational Monitor, April 1987, Volume 8, Number 4). "About 28 of the former US military bases in Vietnam where the herbicides were stored and loaded onto airplanes may still have high level of dioxins in the soil, posing a health threat to the surrounding communities. Extensive testing for dioxin contamination has been conducted at the former US air bases in Da Nang, Phu Cat, Pleiku and Bien Hoa. Some of the soil and sediment on the bases have extremely high levels of dioxin requiring remediation. The Da Nang Airbase has dioxin contamination up to 350 times higher than international recommendations for action. The contaminated soil and sediment continue to affect the citizens of Vietnam, poisoning their food chain and causing illnesses, serious skin diseases, and a variety of cancers in the lungs, larynx, and prostate. " Forty-five years have passed since I left Vietnam in 1970, and thought I had also left that confusing war behind me. But more than four decades later I am still trying to figure out what all that really meant to me and to my country. Increasingly this means learning what we did to the Vietnamese people and their beloved homeland. " In 1987, I returned to Vietnam for the first time since leaving in 1970. It was during that trip that I met Hanoi artist Le Tri Dung, who showed me some of his powerful paintings depicting horribly deformed fetuses that he believed had been caused by their parents exposure to Agent Orange. This was the first time I had ever thought about the exposure of the Vietnamese to this deadly dioxin. After all, most American soldiers spent less than a year in Vietnam while the Vietnamese people, both military and civilian, young and old have been living, hunting, fishing, and farming this contaminated soil since the 1960s. They eat the fish, ducks and other animals who have been dining on this deadly cocktail of chemicals for decades. "One half of the profits from the sale of this book will be donated to a group in Vietnam that works with the victims of Agent Orange. An additional one half will be donated to the Indochina Arts Partnership to continue their work of art and cultural exchange between the United States and Vietnam.

        ON THE MOVE: A LIFE

      New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 2015. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 2015. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 400 pages. The author's thirteenth and final book. One of Oliver Sacks' greatest achievements. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a very small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Oliver Sacks' "On The Move: A Life". It is the bookend/sequel to his first memoir, "Uncle Tungsten: Memories of A Chemical Childhood" (2001), published fourteen years ago. "When Oliver Sacks was twelve years old, a perceptive schoolmaster wrote in his report: 'Sacks will go far, if he does not go too far'. It is now abundantly clear that Sacks has never stopped going. From its opening pages on his youthful obsession with motorcycles and speed, 'On The Move' is infused with his restless energy. The story of a brilliantly unconventional doctor and writer, and of the man who has illuminated the many ways that the brain makes us human" (Publisher's blurb). The book also reveals, for the very first time, Dr. Sacks' homosexuality as well as lifelong celibacy, in candid yet never prurient prose. The fact is Dr. Sacks was a very handsome man (plainly visible on the DJ cover photograph) who, for much of his life, sublimated (if that is the right word) his enormous appetites and energies to science ("wisdom"), medicine ("healing"), and literature ("beauty"). His single greatest contribution to Western thought is that Oliver Sacks, as a practicing specialist doctor and writer, illuminated and changed our understanding of a very old philosophical idea: Human consciousness, in all of its complexity and uniqueness. On February 19, 2015, Dr. Oliver Sacks wrote in the New York Times that he has terminal cancer, is dying, and that "On The Move", yet to be published on April 28, would be his last book. He also wrote that he would continue to work, write, and enjoy life, despite his irreversible condition, that he was, in effect, moving on yet again despite his illness. A genius and a hero, Dr. Oliver Sacks died on August 30, 2015 at the age of 82. "The Poet Laureate of medicine" (The New York Times). "There will be no one like us when we are gone. But then there is no one like anyone else, ever" (Oliver Sacks). An absolute "must-have" title for Oliver Sacks collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in blue pen-marker on the title page by Oliver Sacks. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. He also signed his name in full instead of just his initials. Sacks' signature on this particular copy has the magnificent "tail-flourish" with which he rarely signs his books (instead of just initials them when he is pressed for time). Sacks did not tour to promote the book, but signed a few copies for his publisher, a few dealers, and some friends, as his health permitted. This title is a great book. This is one of very few signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. It is, quite simply, the single most beautiful signed copy we have ever found. Please note: Almost all other copies available online are in innumerable subsequent printings. A rare signed copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with vintage photographs. One of the greatest writer-thinkers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER OLIVER SACKS TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0385352549.

Bound by Claudia Cohen: hand-sewn exposed spine, grey paper wrappers printed with title and geometric shapes in darker grey on front panel, housed in custom-made plum silk over boards with title printed blind on grey paper laid onto spine. Illustrated with 7 hand-cut paper illustrations (translucent abaca paper in hues of rainbow) portray the mysteries of life: a baby in the womb, a couple, a child, a child gaining strength and running to embrace life, the building of a home (the pentagonal shape), exploring the world and, finally, spiritual contemplation. The seven white handmade papers feature seven intricate geometric watermarks which relate to the numbers one through seven and their corresponding shapes: point, line, triangle, square, pentagon, hexagon, septagon. While the numbers 1-7 have many meanings - days of the week, notes in musical scale, colors of rainbow - the 7 geometric shapes here progress from a point (the circle) to a seven-sided form. If this sequence were to continue ad infinitum, the resulting multi-sided figure with an infinite number of sides would approach the shape of a circle again (either the beginning or the end). The text was printed letterpress in Dante by Tom Leech, Palace of the Governors Press, Santa Fe, NM from polymer plates made by Boxcar Press. The designer / papermaker, Helen Hiebert, has contributed a page of "Reflections" which is an artist's statement in which she discusses this book. Interluceo is defined as to shine or gleam between, to be transparent, to light or light through gaps. The luminosity of abaca (banana plant fiber) is cited as an inspiration to create the colored papers of INTERLUCEO. Ms. Hiebert discusses watermarks - noting that hers are created not from wire in the papermaking mould but rather a thin rubber material. They are beautiful and the perfect subtle foil to the obvious brilliance of the cut-outs. From the cut-out and collaged seven-sided form on the titlepage to the diamond-shaped text of colophon, all in this book is simple and simply elegant. Looking at the edges of the book reveals the rainbow inside and urges the reader / viewer to enter into the mystery of light and color exhibited in these beautiful pages. The ultimate reward is the turning of each page as the story unfolds through forms as well as color and light. Abstract enough for the reader to enter his own story, but concrete enough to be visual poetry, this is a wonderful book. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

"Goodale and Scanga worked together on the plates, often sitting close beside each other while making marks on the same plate. The narrative follows the three friends from 'Two or Three Friends' their previous book project.

        THE PLAYERS: THE DELUXE EDITION

      Tucson, AZ: Nazraeli Press, 2015. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. As New/No Dust Jacket, As Issued.. Tucson, AZ: Nazraeli Press, 2015. Hardcover. As New/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. Unpaginated. Retrospective collection of black-and-white photographs. One of Mark Steinmetz's finest achievements. Deluxe Clamshell Box Edition of 25 numbered and signed copies. As such, it is one of the smallest limitations by Nazraeli Press. Should not be confused with the regular trade edition, which has the same ISBN. An austerely elegant production by Mark Steinmetz and Chris Pichler: Oversize-volume format. Khaki cloth boards with photographic reproduction pasted in front and black titles embossed on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Mark Steinmetz. Introductory Essay by Anne Wilkes Tucker. 12 X 10.5 inch original photographic print laid-in. Matching cloth clamshell box. In publisher's protective plastic wrappers. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents, in its ultimate Deluxe Edition format, Mark Steinmetz's "The Players". "Photographs of adolescent and teenaged baseball players, on the field and in the dugout, focused on the game and lost in their own worlds. Made between 1986 and 1990, the photographs are classic Steinmetz: Tenderness, humor, and humanism are all present here, as is Steinmetz's exquisite use of natural light and attention to poetic detail. The kids are ages 6 to 13, with a few older boys. Steinmetz must remember how awkward and uncoordinated bodies that age can be. His empathy is evident throughout the series. Most of these kids are too young to have the grace, skill, or concentration required and are too 'green' to experience the sheer pleasure of knowing they are good, maybe really good, ball players in an unforgiving sport. These kids run into each other in pursuit of a fly ball. Hope drives their swings more than their awareness of the art of hitting. Steinmetz concentrates less on the players in the field than those outside the base lines who are waiting to play or cooling off. He observes the managers as well as the spectators who love the game or one of the players or who just have a free afternoon. He sees 'high fives' as well as the 'what were you thinking' moments" (Anne Wilkes Tucker). An absolute "must-have" title for Mark Steinmetz collectors. This copy is one of the Deluxe Clamshell Box Edition, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Mark Steinmetz. This is the very last (and therefore most valuable) copy of the edition, indicated as such on the 12 X 10.5 inch photographic print that is encased in its own protective plastic sleeve and laid into the box. The print is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully numbered and titled in pencil on verso by the photographer: "Mark Steinmetz Jacksonville, Illinois 1988 25/25". The photograph of the boy, his hands clasped together in prayer, is quite simply, one of Steinmetz's most beautiful images. This title will become a contemporary photography classic. This is one of very few copies of the Deluxe Clamshell Box Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 73 plates, 1 original print. Mark Steinmetz's "South" Trilogy is now widely regarded as one of the greatest photographic projects of our time. One of the most brilliant living photographers. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER MARK STEINMETZ TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1590054180.

        Bible Prints

      Co-Tangent Press, Sacramento, CA 2015 - Artist's book, one of 6 copies, 5 of which are for sale, all on Nideggen paper, each copy signed by the artist, William T. Vollmann, on the colophon and on the hand-lettered titlepage and on the reverse of each print. Page size: 17 x 12-7-8 inches; 12pp. Bound: loose as issued; suite of prints and titlepage and colophon are wrapped in buff Rives lightweight and housed in a custom-made black cloth over boards clamshell box, with title and artist printed in black on white label on spine, box by Joelle Leavitt Webber at The Mermaid Bindery.Each of the 6 copies contains 5 original woodblock prints printed with a spoon in Charbonnel and Daniel Smith oil-based inks, with additional hand-work done a la poupee. The wood blocks were engraved on pine blocks over pencil drawings of two different female models. The Nideggen paper was first under-painted with black acrylic in order to reverse his usual negative-tone style. Each print was then archivally glued to hand-painted, edge-wrapped archival card colored with Daniel Smith gesso and Golden acrylics. The back of each print was waxed with Renaissance wax. The outlines were then embellished with translucent sanguine etching ink on the outlines. The reverse of each print has a card, tipped onto the top left corner, with the number of the set and each signed by William T. Vollmann and dated. In addition, in the lower right corner is a hand-written quotation from the Bible which refers to the image on the verso; chapter and verse are cited. William T. Vollmann's Bible Prints are all of women - as God speaks in a feminine voice. For this always provocative author, God is Goddess. The Biblical quotations so reflect this interpretation. The images are at once fundamental and sophisticated with real punch / power. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Faksimile - Heilsspiegel aus dem Kloster Einiedeln. Ein Bilderreigen aus 176 Miniaturen zur biblischen Geschichte. Einsiedeln, Stiftsbibliothek, Cod. 206.

      Luzern, Quaternio, 2015 - Faksimile: 2°, (36 27,4 cm), 92 Seiten (46 Blatt); Kommentarband: 4° (29 x 20 cm), 318 S., einige Abb., Faks.: Ganzpergament-Bd. mit kalligraphischem Rückentitel; Kommentarbd.: Blauer OLwd. in OLwd.-Schmuckschuber. Beides in Acrylglas-Kassette., Verlagsfrisch Eins von 680 Exemplaren. - Subskriptionspreis bis zum 30.07.2015 = CHF 5980.00. Originalgetreue Faksimile Der um 1450/1460 wahrscheinlich in den burgundischen Niederlanden entstandene lateinische Einsiedler Heilsspiegel gilt als einer der am reichsten ausgestatteten Heilsspiegel überhaupt. In 176 Miniaturen werden Szenen aus dem Neuen und dem Alten Testament zu einem engen Beziehungsgeflecht verwoben, mit dem der Buchmaler die Geschichte des Sündenfalls und der Erlösung der Menschheit von ihrer Erschaffung bis zum Jüngsten Gericht in lebendigen Bildern vor Augen führt. Damit illustriert der Heilsspiegel in Bild und Wort, was in so vielen mittelalterlichen Bildwerken begegnet, nämlich die Überzeugung, dass es einen direkten Zusammenhang zwischen dem Neuen und dem Alten Testament gibt.Die 176 mit zarten Farben lavierten Federzeichnungen schmücken in einer fortlaufenden Reihe die insgesamt 92 Seiten im Format 36 27,4 cm. Höchst ungewöhnlich für einen Heilsspiegel ist, dass alle Ränder mit reichem Dornblattdekor in Gold geschmückt sind. Insgesamt 57 dreizeilige Zierinitialen auf Blattgoldgrund schmücken den Text.Mit dem Heilsspiegel wurde zu Beginn des 14. Jahrhunderts ein neuer Buchtypus geschaffen, der von Anfang an als Text-Bild-Programm konzipiert war. Der »Heilsspiegel« oder das Speculum humanae salvationis stellt einen direkten Zusammenhang zwischen dem Alten und dem Neuen Testament her: zu jedem Geschehnis aus dem Neuen Testament findet er drei Vorbilder vorzugsweise aus dem Alten Testament, die das neutestamentliche Geschehen vorankünden. Damit soll »bewiesen« werden, was der Inhalt des christlichen Glaubens ist: die Erlösung der Menschen durch Christus ist die Erfüllung der dem Volk Israel gegebenen Verheißung. Dieses sog. typologische Denken beherrscht das gesamte mittelalterliche Welt- und Geschichtsverständnis, und damit auch die durch die bildenden Künste dargestellten Themen.Der Heilsspiegel wendet sich sowohl an Geistliche wie an gebildete Laien. Die Texte erläutern die Bilder, und die theologischen Aussagen sind dank der Bilder schneller erfassbar. Die Bilder fungieren als eingängige Verstärker, rufen in Erinnerung und erläutern, was der Laie auch beim Kirchgang auf Wandmalereien, Altartafeln oder in den Glasfenstern abgebildet sah. Eine der schönsten Handschriften, die diese Überlegungen in ausdrucksstarke Bilder übersetzt, ist der Heilsspiegel aus Kloster Einsiedeln.Die Bilder erzählen aber nicht nur die biblische Geschichte, sondern auch vom mittelalterlichen Alltagsleben. Viel Platz wird architektonischen Darstellungen eingeräumt: mächtige Stadttore, Tempelarchitekturen, Brunnen zum Wasserschöpfen, Werkstätten wie z.B. eine Schmiede mit Blasebalg oder ein Kran auf einer Baustelle künden von einem städtischen Ambiente voller Leben. Herrscher, Ritter, Handwerker bevölkern viele Miniaturen.Das Medium der Federzeichnung bietet dabei ganz besondere künstlerische Perspektiven, da sie eine viel höhere Plastizität bei der Figurengestaltung erlaubt. In vielen Fällen berücksichtigt der Meister sogar den Schattenwurf, das Licht kommt dabei stets von links. Mit großem zeichnerischen Geschick schwelgt der Meister des Einsiedler Heilsspiegels in der Draperie der Gewänder. Ihre graphische Wirkung erzielen die Miniaturen durch die mal feinere dann wieder stärkere Schraffur. Es scheint, als ob der Meister des Einsiedler Heilsspiegels versucht habe, den bildnerischen Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten des damals noch jungen Kupferstichs nachzueifern. Auch gekonnt eingesetzte Farbakzente verleihen den vier Bildern auf jeder Doppelseite zusätzliche Spannung.In den flandrischen und nordfranzösischen Städten unter der Herrschaft des Burgunderherzogs Philipps des Guten blühten die Künste de [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Cartographical Incantations

      Berkeley, California:: Set in Motion Press,, 2015.. Edition of 25. 6.5 x 10" closed; double-sided accordion with 9 sewn folios. Letterpress and digitally printed on Hahnemühle Ingress and Nepalese Lokta papers. Ribbon tie. Signed and numbered by the artist. Casey Gardner: "A book of cartographical unfoldings, tessellated map fragments, and beasts of the imagination. Pages open to reflected images of historical map details from the Dutch Age of Discovery. Turn the book over, and the patterns become more complex, abstracting the repetition and reflection many journeys entail. Text includes wayfarer invocations and wayfinding instructions, with mapmaking histories relating to a time when the unknown could be imbued with magical qualities. "Also included is a traveler's tale of chance and choice. The story begins with a door opening and continues to hinge on the word perhaps relating the either/or possibilities that occur and move back and forth on journeys. A forgotten map presents the traveller with options at various crossroads while venturing forth into unpredictable landscapes. "Each folio opens to a tableau of a map fragment joined in reverse symmetry, as if the landscape has more to reveal upon reflection, or mirrors a traveller's aspirations in a quest. On the reverse side of the accordion, these map images are conjured into rhythmic patterns reflecting the repetition of each step in a journey and the variables that form the spell of discovery that entices us into new horizons and lands. Rituals and motifs of movement and boundaries occur in every venture into any landscape, and yet the unique contours and borders are for each traveller to discover and cross. "Each folio includes a Wayfarer Invocation, a poetic directive for finding one's way, or one's place in the world. We hope for guidance, exterior or interior, and question whether to take this path or that, to follow a map or strike out in faith. Going forth in any journey is an opportunity for an entrancing and spellbinding venture of options chosen to reflect our exploratory desires. "Map fragments are from photographs taken by the artist of sixteenth and seventeenth-century Dutch maps found in atlases at the Public Library of Amsterdam, Openbare Bibliotheek Amsterdam." Colophon: "In a library in Amsterdam, up many stairs, there is a quiet space by a window overlooking an inlet of water. Here a cache of atlases can be found and much time can be lost. The images in this book are artifacts from these maps, reflected & tessellated digitally for this project.

        GO SET A WATCHMAN. ***RARE MISPRINT FIRST EDITION. INVESTMENT COPY***

      William Heinemann 2015 - First edition, first printing. This is one of the limited number of copies released by Penguin Random House's printer Clays which were found to contain a printing error. Portions of the text are missing from pages 252, 261, 265, 268, 272 and 277 (please refer to images for a selection). This affected only a small portion of the first edition run and a replacement stock - still from the first edition run - was swiftly sent out to replace the small number of affected, so-called "missing text" copies. According to the publisher, the misprint occurred after an error at the printers resulted in six pages towards the end of the UK edition having missing lines, paragraphs, and page numbers. Interestingly, although this caused intense disappointment and frustration amongst readers - a fact picked up variously in the national press - the response was exactly the opposite amongst collectors. Therein lies, I suspect, a neat explanation of the whole appeal of rare book-collecting. Likely to remain the most desirable format to go for by some way. This copy is complete with the related promotional items. As New in As New dust-wrapper. D. B. Waters Rare Books: we are established (1998) professional booksellers of fine, select 1st editions only.
