Copy no. 37 of a limited edition of 99 handbound copies signed and numbered by both the publisher (Donald Weiser) and the editor (R.A. Gilbert ) on a limitation plate tipped onto the second blank. Though the edition is stated to be 99 copies, less than 45 copies were actually bound thus, because the publishing company changed hands while the edition was being produced. Scarce thus. The Collectanea Hermetica was a series of hermetic tracts that were either edited by (or in some cases the work of) members of the Golden Dawn. It was first published in ten separate volumes between 1893-1896 by W. Wynn Wescott, the main editor and also author of a number fo the works, as well as being one of the founders of the Golden Dawn.

Vol. III: A Short Enquiry Concerning the Hermetic Art by A Lover of Philalethes, Preface by Non Omnis Moriar (William Wynn Westcott), An Introduction to Alchemy and Notes by S.S.D.D. (Florence Farr), Vol. IV: Æsch Mezareph or Purifying Fire, A Chymico-Kabalistic Treatise Collected from the Kabala Denudata or Knorr Von Rosenroth. Translated by a Lover of Philalethes, 1714, Preface, notes and explanations by Sapere Aude (William Wynn Westcott). Vol. V: Somnium Scipionis, Translated into English with an Essay "The Vision of Scipio Considered as a Fragment of the Mysteries" by L.O. (Percy Bullock), The Golden Verses of Pythagoras, by A.E.A. (E W. Coleman), The Symbols of Pythagoras, by S.A. (William Wynn Westcott), Vol. VI: The Chaldæan Oracles of Zoroaster, edited and revised by Sapere Aude, with an introduction by L.O. Vol. VII: Euphrates or the Waters of the East by Eugenius Philalethes 1655, with a commentary by S.S.D.D. (Florence Farr), Vol. VIII: Egyptian Magic by S.S.D.D. (Florence Farr), Vol. IX: Numbers and their Occult Power and Mystic Virtues by Wm. Wynn Westcott, Vol. X: Sepher Yetzirah, the Book of Formation with the Fifty Gates of Intelligence and the Thirty-two Paths of Wisdom, translated from the Hebrew by Wm. Wynn Westcott. Light rubbing to boards with a few very faint scratches, otherwise Fine condition. A lovely and very limited edition. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

         Bill Jacobson: 1989-1997: The Deluxe Edition

      Santa Fe, NM: Twin Palms Publishing(1998). First Edition / First Printing. Fine in Fine Dust Jacket. Unpaginated. The artist/photographer's breakthrough debut collection. One of the greatest art photography books of the 20th century. Deluxe Clamshell Box Edition of 50 numbered and signed copies. Should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. The Deluxe Edition is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Bill Jacobson and Jack Woody: Oversize-volume format. Pale gray cloth boards with black titles on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Bill Jacobson. Short story, "Lost Profile", by Klauss Kertess. Original photographic print laid into the box. Matching pale gray cloth clamshell box. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper by EBS in Verona, Italy to the highest standards. In white pictorial DJ, as issued. Presents "Bill Jacobson: 1989-1997". The artist/photographer's dramatic sequence of images that test the boundaries of the portrait by a singular blurring/effacing technique applied to all of the photographs. The images appear to be eerie at first, but as one moves progressively through the complete series (which are grouped into three suites, "Interim Portrait", "Song of Sentient Beings", and "Thought Series"), one cannot help but be deeply moved by the cumulative and overwhelming power of Bill Jacobson's achievement. Jacobson has accomplished nothing less than a re-imagination of every human being as a presence who is also an absence: We are and we are not at the same time. As Ingmar Bergman once said of "Persona", perhaps the greatest film of the 20th century, it is not so much a question of being or nothing ("to be or not to be"). Rather, it is a question of being-as-nothing. Jacobson has explicitly said that the book is one of loss and remembrance, especially of friends and lovers, that is, nothing-ness. The images are deepened rather than effaced by the unusual blurring technique that the photographer has used. "I started taking photographs nearly twenty-five years ago. Since then my work has been an ongoing meditation around desire, loss, and the role of photography as a vehicle for remembrance. My pictures often function as a metaphor for the way the mind works: Simultaneously collecting images while letting others go, fading in the way memories fade, and alluding to the fact that, historically, photographs have faded as well" (Bill Jacobson). An absolute "must-have" title for Bill Jacobson collectors. This copy is Number 50, the very last (and therefore, most valuable) copy of the Deluxe Edition, indicated/numbered as such on the Back Limitation Page, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Bill Jacobson. Laid-in is an original photographic print that is mounted, framed, and protected with a glassine paper overlay. It is also very prominently and beautifully signed, titled, dated, and numbered in pencil on verso by the artist/photographer: "bill jacobson thought series # 712 1993 (twin palms) 50/50". Jacobson deliberately used all-lower-case letters for the inscription. This title is a great art photography book. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the Deluxe Clamshell Box Edition available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 52 tritone plates, 1 original print. One of the most brilliant American artist/photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER BILL JACOBSON TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0944092497.

         Pornographic ("por'ne-graf'ik")

      Santa Fe, NM: Twin Palms Publishing(1998). First Edition / First Printing. As New in No Dust Jacket, As Issued. 102 pages. Landmark collection of sex pictures. Now considered a contemporary erotic art photography classic. Deluxe Clamshell Box Edition of 50 numbered and signed copies. Precedes and should not be confused with the Limited Edition of 4000 copies. The Deluxe Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Ken Probst and Jack Woody: Regular-sized volume format. Glossy red hard boards with black titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Ken Probst. "Ballad For the Beautiful Boy Or Why I Like Photography" by A. M. Homes. List of Plates appended at the end. Original 10 X 8 inch photographic print mounted on pristine-white boards and laid into the box. Black cloth clamshell box. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents, in its Deluxe Edition format, Ken Probst's "Pornographic". One of the most unusual erotica books ever published. "Behind-the-scenes" photographs of the adult-entertainment stars "in action". Popularly (and aptly) known as The Valley, an actual place as well as the metaphorical opposite of The Heights of Hollywood, American pornography is a multi-billion-dollar industry and one of this puritanical country's most reliable exports. Ken Probst was hired to photograph film actors for publicity pictures and video boxes. Once on the sets, he began to photograph behind-the-scenes, revealing the absurdity, pathos, and humanity of the business. Despite its ironic stance, it is a highly erotic collection, and provides a remarkable glimpse of the mechanics of manufacturing desire. That is why the original print that the Deluxe Edition comes with is stunning: The cameraman is visible in the foreground but only as a silhouette while the male actors (who are in the throes of anal sex) in the background are brightly lit, reversing the focussed foreground/blurred background photographic convention, in keeping with Probst's point about the "behind-the-scenes" versus "in action" dynamic of desire. An absolute "must-have" edition for Ken Probst and erotic art photography collectors. This copy of the Deluxe Clamshell Box Edition is Number 50/50, indicated as such on the Back Limitation Page, the very last (and therefore most collectible) copy, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the page opposite the very first plate by Ken Probst. It comes with an original 10 X 8 inch photographic print that is mounted in white boards, also very prominently and beautifully numbered, titled, and signed in pencil by the photographer: "Brad & Corey 50/50 Ken Probst". This title is an erotic art photography classic. This is one of very few copies of the Deluxe Edition still available online, is still in the publisher's original shrinkwrap, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 48 duotone plates, 1 original print. One of the most brilliant American photographers of our time. A flawless collectible copy. . ISBN 0944092535.

He had grown frustrated that his TV pilots and screenplays were not getting made and that TV-related production limitations like budgets and episode lengths were forcing him to cut characters and trim battle scenes. This pushed Martin back towards writing books, where he did not have to worry about compromising the size of his imagination. Admiring the works of J. R. R. Tolkien in his childhood, he wanted to write an epic fantasy, though he did not have any specific ideas. This would eventually turn into his epic fantasy series: A Song of Ice and Fire, which was inspired by the Wars of the Roses, The Accursed Kings and Ivanhoe. Martin originally conceptualised it as being three volumes. It is currently intended to comprise seven volumes. The first, A Game of Thrones, was published in 1996."
