Item Description: Adams H-394; Ahmanson-Murphy 62 & 62a; Dibdin II, p. 19; Dibdin, Introduction (1804), p. 152; PMM 41; Renouard, Annnales 8 (p. 35). Splendid copy of the famous first edition of the original Greek text of the works of Herodotus (ca. 484 BC- ca. 425 BC), "the father of history," published and edited by Aldus Manutius at Venice on the basis of many manuscripts, demonstrating Aldus's dedication to Giovanni Calfurnio da Brescia. By promoting Herodotus as a key to ancient history and society and providing a reliable text, it set the stage for his popularity in the 16th century. It covers the growth of the Persian Empire, the history of Egypt, Persian incursions into Greece, the defeat of the Persians in 490 BC, the Persian king Xerxes's attempt to avenge the Persian defeat and their defeat once again in 479 BC. But perhaps of greatest interest are the strange and fantastic tales and anecdotes, including the circumnavigation of Africa. He carefully distinguished what his sources said from his own opinions, while reporting both (proving the circumnavigation of Africa by the report of the sun to the north, even though he himself thought it impossible)."Herodotus is the earliest historian; his predecessors were by contrast chroniclers. He was the first to collect his materials systematically, to test their accuracy as far as he could, and to arrange his story so as to appeal to, as well as inform, his readers. . Certainly for the Persian war his authority forms the basis of all modern histories; and, more than that, it is the stuff of legends. Herodotus is far more than a valuable source: always readable, his work has been quoted and translated ever since" (PMM).The text is set entirely in Aldus's famous ligatured Greek type, with guide letters for the initials that were to be added by the illuminator (not added in the present copy, which remains as it came from the press), and a smaller Greek used without ligatures on the title-page. The title, list of the nine muses, quire signatures and colophon (the latter with a list of the quires and their collation) are in Greek and Latin, the Latin list of muses in the world's first italic type, introduced the previous year, and the rest in roman or roman capitals.The great 18th-century classical scholar Wesseling noted that this first edition is very faithful and accurate, compiled with great care and executed with considerable typographical elegance. Dibdin notes that Steven Bergler ranked this edition among the very best productions of the Aldine press.With extensive records of provenance; Lüder Kulenkamp (1771), A. Chr. Bocheer (1796), Chr. Fr. Harless[?] (1824), the Dukes of Arenberg (late 19th-century) and Albert Natural (20th century). In fine condition and with generous margins, with only some light stains on the first page and last page, and a couple tiny marginal worm holes in the last 4 leaves (in the margins except for 1 in the last leaf). Magnificent copy of a seminal first edition from a famous library. Bookseller Inventory # 98OH076596KH

Item Description: Palau 328839; USTC 343307. First edition, in Latin, of a report on the Portuguese in India and especially on their defeat of the Muslim Gujarat Sultanate at the second siege of Diu in 1546, written by the Portuguese humanist Diogo de Teive (ca. 1514-ca. 1570). The book opens with a 4-page dedication to King João III, dated 1 March 1548, and two verses (each occupying a full page), followed by the main text, dated August 1547.The Portuguese reached India in 1498 (and regarded it as their property under the 1494 Treaty of Tordesillas concluded with Spain) but in the early years they met stiff resistance from the Gujarats, supported at various times by the Mamluks and the Ottoman Empire. Although they never penetrated far inland, the Portuguese gradually came to dominate the coastal areas, in particular expanding their territory and power in northwest India from 1509 to 1546. In 1546 the Gujarats under Khoja (or Khwaja) Sofar tried to retake Diu, lost in 1509, but after a seven-month siege they were routed by the Portuguese fleet under João de Castro. This established the European colonial power and the European spice trade in India (including what is now Pakistan), where Portugal was to be followed by the Dutch and especially England before most of India finally gained its independence in 1947. Small parts, including Diu, remained in Portuguese hands until 1961.Trimmed, shaving an accent on the title-page and the running head on a few pages, but otherwise in good condition, with some minor defects. The binding has several worm holes and the spine is damaged and partly restored. A contemporary account of the Portuguese defeat of the Muslim forces in Gujarat in 1546.

Item Description: Ahmanson-Murphy 112; Hoffman 3, p.167; Kallendorf & Wells, Aldine Press Books 99; Renouard, pp. 60-62. Very important first edition of most of the Attic orators, the works of Demosthenes having been published earlier. It is one of the most important and beautiful books printed by the famous Aldine printing office, two years before Aldus Manutius's death. It includes texts by Aeschines, Lysias, Alcidamas, Anthisthenes, Damades, Andocides, Isaeus, Dinarchus, Antiphon, Lycurgus, Gorgias, Lesbonax, Herodes, Isocrates and Aristides. There are two important dedicatory letters by Aldus Manutius: one to Francesco Fasolo and one to Giovanni Battista Egnazio. The main texts are set entirely in Aldus's ligatured Greek type, a style he introduced in 1495 that established the main stream of Greek printing types that reigned for two hundred years. Provenance: British Museum Library (duplicate sale 1814); Charles P. Burney; Charles Bloomfield (on his death in 1857 his heirs returned the book to Charles Burney, who had given it to him); William Foyle. The leaf with a 2-line instruction to the binder, in volume 1, has been removed as intended (as in nearly every copy). Very occasional slight browning or faint stains, the lower margin of quire ff extended. In very good condition. The bindings are somewhat worn on the spine, hinges and edges, but still in good condition. Beautiful first edition of the Attic orators, rarely found in such good condition.

Tamayo Rufino ******* an artist's confidence in combining line and space, piercing a wrist and cutting into an eye, the central k in FAKE done with an insult-v-along the figure's nose joined to an x. The nonpareil Rufino Tamayo autograph nearly spans the width of the drawing; its long T-bar highlights FAKE. Three pieces of documentation on the rear backing, the art gallery seller label, a museum sticker used to augment provenance, and Weintraub's jottings on the purchase, establish some of the historical background. *******

Item Description: Soft cover. Book Condition: Good. THE ACCOMPANYING BOOK: The illustrated forgery document is matched with the rare deluxe issue of "Tamayo" from Weintraub's collection, which provides additional forensic support with its authentic Rufino Tamayo signature from the same time period on the justification leaf signed by the contributors. "Tamayo", by Juan Garcia Ponce, Galeria de Arte Misrachi, Mexico City, 1967, the first edition, limited to 3110 examples, all texts in Spanish & English, printing by Litografia Graue, Sociedad Anónima. The first 110 examples comprise the deluxe issue printed on Sirius cardstock paper and handbound in soft calf decorated with a Rufino Tamayo brush design, the justification leaf for this example of the deluxe issue signed and numbered no. 71 by Rufino Tamayo, and additionally signed by Fernando Lopez Valencia, the bookbinder, Francisco Graue, the principal editor, and German Torres, the printer. CONDITION: Forged Drawing: Fine / Tamayo Documentation: Fine / Gallery Label: Fine / SBMA Sticker: Very Good / Picture Frame: Poor / Book: Good, lacks the accompanying, called for, original signed Tamayo drawing, lacks the raffia board slipcase. FORGED DRAWING: Forger: unknown. Media: pen & ink and pastel. Size: 240 x 319 mm (9.5 x 12.6 inches). Title: Woman with Outstretched Arms. Date: 1967. Artwork Price: $2,500.00 (after trade discount). Sale Date: February, 4, 1969. Seller: Maxwell Galleries, 551 Sutter St., San Francisco. Buyer: Weintraub Gallery, 992 Madison Avenue, New York. Date of Declaration of Forgery and the Altered Artwork: unknown, possibly Weintraub showed Tamayo the pastel drawing in 1971 or 1973 when the artist was visiting NY for the opening of solo exhibitions at the Perls Gallery. PROVENANCE: After making his reputation as a dealer in German Expressionist art, Jacob Weintraub [1905-2000] opened a gallery in Manhattan in 1967 and he would have been purchasing after the 1968 Christmas season to add to his inventory. Weintraub had a personal connection to the altered work and recognizing the great rarity of the event, kept this remarkable art history picture-document for his private collection. The altered forgery and deluxe issue book were purchased together at auction from the Jacob D. Weintraub estate. BOOK EDITION NOTE: The general limited edition was issued in black cloth with a color pictorial book jacket, reproducing one of Tamayo's watermelon paintings. The Galeria de Arte Misrachi limited edition is the true first edition. The Tudor edition, issued slightly later and published in the United States is often misidentified as the first edition.

Item Description: ZhangJiaKou, HeBei Province PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF C, 1951. Book Condition: Good. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. On offer is a significant, historical manuscript document archive of 120 pages handwritten by a Chinese teacher named Wang JiYao who was a teacher at the Food Oil factory, City of ZhangJiaKou, HeBei Province in the era of the anti-rights struggle of the 1950's. Historians and researchers and collectors of the era will note the schizophrenic nature of the times so clearly displayed by the totality of these papers. The man in this archive was a teacher born in early 1930s becoming a teacher in 1951. As the Chinese government launched a call for intellectuals to give advice and even criticize the leader of the government in early 1957 this teacher gave frank and reasonable advice and criticism of the government. Later that year, the situation reversed. He and thousands of other intellectuals in China who criticized their leaders and government were judged guilty of anti-socialist thought and right wing deviation. He was classified as a Rightist for what he said in his daily life. Some examples: "The brutality of the communist party is unsurpassed by the Qin Emperor"; "It should be fine to criticize Chairman Mao, because he is an educated man"; "If the leader refuses the criticism, then he should not be a leader". The writer was called to confess his so called crimes. The confession was written by Wang JiYao from 1951 to 1957, the material written before 1957 was related to his family, because he was born to a landowner's family, which was classified as the class enemy number one. Other reports were written by many coworkers to show Wang JiYao had the rightist ideas by revealing what he said in the past. No conviction material was attached. The 120 pages consist of more than 10 files, including: his registration forms in early 1950s; three impeachment or disclosure files [including testimony of co-workers; and five files of his confessions of guilt (70 pages!) in 1957. This archive is a particularly interesting encapsulation within one man's experience of a sadly all too typical occasion in mid 20th Century China. Overall G. HISTORICAL NOTES: One online source provides: The Anti-Rightist Movement of the People's Republic of China in the 1950s and early 1960s consisted of a series of campaigns to purge alleged "rightists" within the Communist Party of China (CPC) and abroad. The definition of "rightists" was not always consistent, sometimes including critics to the left of the government, but officially referred to those intellectuals who appeared to favour capitalism and class divisions and against collectivization. The campaigns were instigated by Chairman Mao Zedong and saw the political persecution of an estimated 550,000. The Anti-Rightist Movement was a reaction against the Hundred Flowers Campaign, which had promoted pluralism of expression and criticism of the government. Going perhaps as far back as the Long March there had been resentment against "rightists" inside the CPC, for example Zhang Bojun. The first wave of attacks began immediately following the end of the Hundred Flowers movement in July 1957. By the end of the year, 300,000 people had been labeled as rightists, including the writer Ding Ling. Future premier Zhu Rongji, then working in the State Planning Commission, was purged in 1958. Most of the accused were intellectuals. The penalties included informal criticism, "re-education through labour" and in some cases death. One main target was the independent legal system. Legal professionals were transferred to other jobs; judicial power was exercised instead by political cadres and the police. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Chinese Language.

He discusses and extensively illustrates the Tuscan, Doric, Ionic, Composite (here called Roman) and Corinthian orders of column, along with doorways, arches, facades, etc., using them. Other illustrations show fireplaces, a church interior and exterior, geometrical diagrams, ornaments, etc.Ad 2: Rare Dutch edition of one of the most popular books on the art of perspective, by the engraver, publisher and expert on fortifications Henricus Hondius the elder (1573-1650). The book gives thorough review of the most famous earlier authors on perspective, including the founder of the genre Hans Vredeman de Vries. "The book provides a series of neatly conceived demonstrations of perspective in its abstract and applied forms and gives an original if brief analysis of the upwards convergence of tall verticals to a 'contre-poinct' when viewed with a plane tilted slightly toward the spectator" (Kemp, p. 112). The Bosboom lacks 1 text leaf, but both works are otherwise in good condition, with some mostly marginal stains and some marginal restorations. The binding has been rebacked, with the original backstrip laid down. Two 17th-century classics on architecture and perspective. Bookseller Inventory # AB5F8JQ6DWIV

Item Description: 2000 flyers; A unique genre of graphic design, the rave flyer is bred entirely underground. The rave scene has had a tremendous impact on contemporary mainstream culture in its musical, social and creative growth. The flyer is the primary testament of this transmission, standing not only as an important commercial art form, but also as a concise and substantive record of an entire movement. This collection documents some of the best English rave flyers of the last two decades – a colorful and incredible visual record of a movement that has forever changed culture. There are also some Australian and Scottish flyers from major city raves. Rave flyers became one of the most potent symbols of youth culture in the 1990s – their bright colors signifying a return to psychedelia, their computer-generated design a clue to future technology fetishes, their dense text an invitation to a subculture with its own deities and language.

Item Description: c, 1910. The exterior dimensions are 760 x 62o mms., while the oval portrait is 560 x 460 mms. The original painting was sold at Christie's South Kensington in November, 2008, sold for £103,250.
