      Wien Europaverlag-80 1975 - Band 1 bis 9. Komplett. 22 x 15 cm. Original Leineneinbände mit Rsch., Bibliotheksschild auf Vorderdeckel u. eingeb. OU. Ein Deckel wenig fleckig, sonst sehr gute Zustände. Innen mit den übl. Bibliotheksstempeln u. Einträgen, teils durchgestrichen, sonst tadellose Exemplare. Wie neu. Aus dem Inhalt: Otto Bauer war eine der reinsten Gestalten des Sozialismus, selbstlos bis zur Selbstaufopferung, beherrscht vom stärksten Gefühl persönlicher moralischer Verantwortung, asketisch in seinen Lebensansprüchen, unberührt von politischen Intrigen, ein ritterlicher Gegner seiner Kritiker in der sozialistischen Bewegung und seiner Feinde im bürgerlichen Lager. Die Kühle seines analytischen Geistes war mit Herzenswärme gepaart und sein leidenschaftliches Ringen um den Sozialismus angefeuert von der Glut seiner Empörung gegen Unrecht, Unterdrückung und Grausamkeit. Er war eine der großen Gestalten des Sozialismus. In seinen Schriften hat er dem Sozialismus neue Welten der Erkenntnis erschlossen. Er war das Haupt der Revolution in Österreich. Er war einer der bedeutendsten Theoretiker des Marxismus seit dem Tode von Marx und Engels, der größte Erzieher des Proletariats seit dem Tode Victor Adlers, der glanzvollste und gedankentiefste Redner der Internationale seit dem Tod von Jean Jaures. Original Leineneinbände mit Rsch., Bibliotheksschild auf Vorderdeckel u. eingeb. OU. Ein Deckel wenig fleckig, sonst sehr gute Zustände.

Durante la mostra, la fontana è stata esposta a fianco di Guernica di Picasso e Miró Reaper. Calder ha dato la scultura alla Fondazione Joan Miró nel 1975, spinto dal forte legame di amicizia che univa il pittore. Questi due schizzi preziosi sono stati fatti in occasione di spostare il lavoro e l'installazione della fondazione.   - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Deux croquis originaux réalisés au crayon par Alexander Calder.

      National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa 1975 - Large hardbound quarto in dustwrapper. Judd's catalogue raisonne with 355 works made between 1 August 1960 when he moved his studio at 53 East 19th Street and 1 July 1974. Essay by Roberta Smith. Curated by Brydon Smith. Text in English and French. 320 pp. Profusely illustrated. Book has a few small age spots to page edges else a near fine copy in the scarce red cloth binding. The matching dustwrapper has a tape mend, some small wear at edges and shows some of the typical toning to spine color. Overall the wrapper is in good to very good condition. This copy stands out for two reasons: the book has been INSCRIBED BY JUDD and dated in 1979. Inscribed copies of the hard-bound edition of this book rarely come to market (the 2006 Wright Art + Design auction sold a copy for $15,600 hammer, just to give some idea of value). Secondly, afixed to the front endpaper beneath Judd's inscription is a postcard entitled "Bird's Eye View, Marfa, Texas". This is the outdoor museum well known for its holdings of Judd's work. It is unknown who attached this card to this copy of the book, but possibly by the artist himself. Provenance of this copy will be provided upon sale.

        The Works of Geoffrey Chaucer [facsimile of the Kelmscott Chaucer]

      The Basilisk Press, London 1975 - 44x30cm, 560+192pp (2 volumes). With facsimiles of 87 illustrations by Sir Edward Burne-Jones engraved on wood by W H Hooper, and additional multiple woodcut borders, frames and initials, and over 100 plates of reproductions of the original pencil drawings tipped-in to the companion volume. Copy 23 of 500 for sale (515) printed letterpress in black and red on St Cuthbert's Mill mould-made rag paper with William Morris's 'carp' watermark, bound in full Morris 'Larkspur' pattern maroon and beige coarse linen by Liberty of London, blue paper title-labels to the backstrips with spare labels tipped-in to the rear of each volume, in a substantial slipcase of wooden construction covered with dark blue Ingres paper. With a copy of the Prospectus (which also includes the Basilisk Press publications 'The Australian Flower Paintings of Ferdinand Bauer' and 'The Red Books of Humphrey Repton', to which is laid-in a bifolium specimen sheet, containing three (disjoint) pages from the Chaucer, plus the details of the edition with some hand annotations in ink. The Basilisk Chaucer is universally acknowledged to be the greatest facsimile of Kelmscott's magnum opus, and an important Press book in its own right. The perfectionism of Peter Guy, the designer, and the amount of care and work behind the creation of 'as perfect a replica of the original as is physically possible' (Prospectus) is detailed in an article by Bernard Roberts in Matrix 22 (Whittington Press, 2002). It is clear that no expense was spared in achieving the best result in every detail: the capture of the original pages, the choices of paper and ink, the presswork itself (by the John Roberts Press) etc. To take just one element: the specially-made and watermarked paper from St Cuthbert's Mill was deemed good enough only after two previous trial formulations were rejected, and has some claim to improve on the original due to its higher opacity, eliminating the slight show-through associated with Morris's more translucent Batchelor paper. The article also reveals that one or two of the disbound sheets of the original Kelmscott volume used as the source suffered some smudging when inserted into transparent envelopes for storage ¿ Morris's ink was still not fully dry after eighty years! The companion volume, by Duncan Robinson, contains essays on the genesis of the Kelmscott Chaucer and the details of the evolution of Burne-Jones's illustrations from the original pencil sketches, through ink copies by Catterson-Smith and Fairfax-Murray, to the final printed woodcuts by W H Hooper. The Basilisk Press published a handful of extremely fine books, but the Chaucer, its first, stands as the Press's magnum opus just as the original was for Kelmscott. The Basilisk facsimile was itself used as the master source to create the 2002 Folio Society facsimile. This copy has no rubbing, wear or marks whatsoever to the somewhat vulnerable linen bindings. The heavy wooden slipcase is also vulnerable to damage given the weight that must be tackled when moving and handling the book, but this example is in well-above average condition with no tears or chips. Fine (a few fine brown speckles to the top edge of the text block of the main volume, and short ink ownership inscriptions to the front pastedowns in both volumes), in a Near Fine (some light fading) slipcase with a Very Good (minor old creasing near the spine) Prospectus. Please note this book is extremely large and heavy and additional shipping costs beyond our standard rates are likely to apply. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Deux croquis originaux : la Fontaine de Mercure

      1975 - - 1975, 21x29,7cm, 2 feuilles. - Deux croquis originaux réalisés au crayon par Alexander Calder. Deux mentions manuscrites en tête de chaque feuillet l'une au stylo bille d'un rédacteur non identifié (« Mercury fountain by Calder Saché 1975 may ») et l'autre au crayon de la main de Calder : « Therese Herdek Suisse ». En 1937, Calder est commissionné par le gouvernement espagnol, en lutte contre l'insurrection franquiste, pour réaliser une sculpture moderne à présenter à l'exposition universelle de Paris. Il est ainsi le seul artiste non-hispanique à exposer dans le Pavillon de l'Espagne. Il imagine alors sa Fontaine de Mercure, un hommage aux mineurs d'Almadén qui résistent au siège tenu par les troupes franquistes. Les mines fournissaient alors 60% du mercure mondial et cette sculpture se veut un acte politique fort d'opposition au fascisme. La construction de cette monumentale sculpture demanda 5000 kilos de mercure liquide qui furent transportées des mines jusqu'à Paris. L'œuvre consiste en une fontaine perpétuelle de mercure surmontée d'un mobile à deux pendants : l'un est un cercle rouge et l'autre est constitué du nom d' « Almadén » ; au pied du bassin est inscrit « Mercure espagnol Almadén ». Lors de l'exposition, la fontaine fut exposée aux côtés du Guernica de Picasso et du Faucheur de Miró. Calder a offert la sculpture à la fondation Joan Miró en 1975, mû par le lien d'amitié étroit qui l'unissait au peintre. Ces deux précieux croquis ont été réalisés à l'occasion du déplacement de l'œuvre et de son installation à la fondation. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Two original pencil sketches by Alexander Calder. Two handwritten mentions at the head of each leaflet, one in the ballpoint pen of an unidentified editor ("Mercury fountain by Calder Saché 1975 may") and the other in pencil in the hand of Calder: "Therese Herdek Switzerland " . In 1937, Calder was commissioned by the Spanish government, in struggle against the Francoist insurrection, to make a modern sculpture to present at the Paris World Fair. He is thus the only non-Hispanic artist to exhibit in the Pavilion of Spain. He then imagines his Fountain of Mercury, a tribute to the miners of Almadén who resist the siege held by Franco's troops. The mines then supplied 60% of the global mercury and this sculpture is a strong political act of opposition to fascism. The construction of this monumental sculpture required 5,000 kilos of liquid mercury, which were transported from the mines to Paris. The work consists of a perpetual fountain of mercury surmounted by a mobile with two pendants: one is a red circle and the other is made of the name of "Almadén"; at the foot of the basin is inscribed "Spanish Mercury Almadén". During the exhibition, the fountain was exhibited alongside Picasso's Guernica and Miró's Reaper . Calder offered the sculpture to the Joan Miró Foundation in 1975, moved by the close friendship that united him to the painter. These two precious sketches were made during the movement of the work and its installation to the foundation. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
