WE SHIP MOST BOOKS SIX DAYS A WEEK AND WILL CONFIRM WITH TRACKING NUMBER FOR DOMESTIC ORDERS OR CUSTOMS NUMBER FOR NON DOMESTIC). This novel is set in an Oregon asylum, and serves as a study of the institutional process and the human mind. Its curious style lays the foundation for a discussion about truth, as not every event described by the narrator is probable truth in the book's reality, such a decision is made by the reader. It was made into a movie in 1975 by Miloš Forman, after being made by Dale Wasserman into a Broadway play. The title comes from Chief Bromden's memory of a rhyme his grandmother taught him when he was a child; One flew east, One flew west, One flew over the cuckoo's nest. The three geese described by the rhyme can be seen, respectively, as Nurse Ratched, McMurphy, and Chief. McMurphy and Ratched directly oppose each other, literally and symbolically, represented by the geese flying east and west. Chief, on the other hand, is caught in the middle, and his struggle to regain sanity in the mental institution (and the larger society it represents) is symbolized by the third goose's flight. ; 8vo [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Linolschnitte [Linocuts]

      Stuttgart: Gerd Hatje, 1962. Oblong folio (13 x 15 1/2 inches). 45 fine color linocuts printed by Galerie Louise Leiris, Paris. Original decorated cloth; publisher's cloth slipcase with mounted color panels. Slipcase rubbed and a bit worn; some pale spotting to sheet edges, but generally a fresh, bright copy. FIRST GERMAN EDITION, THE COMPLETE SERIES OF LINOCUTS. Linocuts form a relatively small part of Picasso's oeuvre as a printmaker, however some of his most outstanding compositions were produced using this method in a short burst of activity between 1958 and 1963. The painstaking process of making them inspired Picasso to invent a solution: rather than use separate blocks for each color, he printed the whole image from just one block in the so-called 'reduction' method. The block was printed in the lightest color, then cut further and printed successively from the lighter to the darker colors. This book was issued in both French and German.
