Tokyo: 1819. Edited by Hata Kanae. Six volumes. The definitive edition of the Kuo-yu, or Conversations from the States, one of the classic chronicles dating from Chinese antiquity, the Spring and Autumn Era of Chinese history. “The narratives in the Conversations are arranged according to the states [provinces] to which they pertain...the central court of Chou and the feudal states of Lu, Ch’i,Chin,Ch’u, Wu and Yueh.... Within the sections devoted to each state, the narratives are arranged chronologically, but there is no attempt to give a year by year account” (Watson 66). In blue covers with silk ties. A fine, handsome edition of a hard to find work. An especially handsome copy.

Description:
Toronto: University of Toronto Press, 1979. Limited edition, No. 60 of 100, signed by Russell Harper (xvi, 204, index), 164 reproductions in colour and b&w of Krieghoff’s paintings (and some merely attributed to him). Quarto (25 cm.), in three-quarter red cloth over complimentary marbled paper, matching slipcase; gilt titles to cover and spine. Cornelius Krieghoff’s two thousand ‘canvases of popular, anecdotal, genre subjects brought new dimensions to the Canadian scene and a colourful romanticism’ (Harper, CE) and depict in dramatic, affectionate detail everyday events in mid-century Quebec (especially)-- as for example ‘The Habitant Farm’, ‘Run Off the Road in a Blizzard’, ‘The Baker’s Mishap’. The Thompson collection, which can be seen at the Art Gallery of Ontario, is an especially generous sampling of Krieghoff’s paintings, and this title is an especially handsome survey of Krieghoff’s life and work. A scarce edition, scarcer… Read more

Description:

New York: Random House, 1997. First edition (pp. xvii, 388, index). Large quarto (23 cm) in pictorial dust jacket, blue cloth with gilt and impressed titles. Properly a pictorial history of the Kurdish people (a ‘layering of narratives both textual and photographic’), not merely an illustrated text, “Meiselas assembles images from Western sources and from the trunks and personal albums of Kurdish families, oral histories, declassified government documents, newspaper clippings, and memoirs’ and accounts from the ‘perspective of travellers, missionaries, anthropologists, colonial administrators, and journalists, as well as the Kurds themselves.”  A brilliantly conceived and produced source book by an award-winning Magnum photographer teamed with a leading expert on Kurdish history and culture. Quite a fine copy, a single mended tear to one dust jacket corner.
