KEITH HARING - Original color silkscreen

Lot 773: KEITH HARING - Original color silkscreen

by Stanford Auctioneers

July 27, 2014, 8:00 AM PST

Phoenix, AZ, USA

Estimated Price: $400 - $500

Description: Keith Haring (American, 1958 - 1990). "Crack Down! [program]". Original color silkscreen. 1986. Signed in black marker, lower center; signed and dated in the plate. Edition unknown, probably c2,000. Light cream smooth wove paper. Full margins. Fine impression with vibrant colors. Condition: fine. Literature/catalogue raisonne: Gundel/von der Osten 40 for the poster. Scarce, and rare when signed. No auction records located. The image for the program is identical to that of the image for the poster created by Haring (with the exception of the background color) at the request of the concert promoter Bill Graham. Graham revisited his old Bronx neighborhood in August of 1986 and, appalled to see that the drug culture had effectively wiped out the local culture, foresaw a menacing problem in the crack craze. He teamed with David Maldonado to stage a Crack Benefit in the city, but scaled back plans several times since few shared his apprehension. Ultimately, two concerts were held, one at Madison Square Garden on October 31st and the other, an all-Latin show at the Felt Forum, the following night. Much like theatrical playbills, programs have been used at concerts for decades. With information on bands and their members, it gives the concertgoer a chance to get to know the musicians they will soon see live. The program offered here is from the performance at the Felt Forum on November 1st, which featured Santana, Ruben Blades y Seis del Solar, Willie Colon, Eddie Palmieri, Tito Puente, and Bobby Rodriguez y la Nueva Compania. Image copyright © The Keith Haring Foundation. Overall size: 9 x 12 1/16 in. (229 x 306 mm). Image size: 9 x 6 in. (229 x 152 mm). [28364] |250| {R100}

Antique Ephemera  CUBAN INDENTURE DOCUMENTS History Chinese Indentured Slave Worker 1868 Coolie Havana Cuba Slavery Signed Contract

Estimated Price: $70 - $200

Description: Details: This antique document, dated 1868, is from Cuba, and is a contract for an indentured Chinese laborer. The worker who signed this document was illiterate, and indicated his agreement with a cross mark.During the mid-19th century, thousands of Chinese both voluntarily and involuntarily emigrated to Spanish colonies in the western hemisphere, where they labored on railroads and sugar plantations as indentured laborers alongside African slaves. Cuban consular agents would recruit workers with the promise of a better life, but often the emigrants would be captured by Chinese pirates and sold as slaves. Although British ports could not ship Chinese coolies to non-British destinations, many ships sailed to Macau where Portuguese-owned prison ships that transported slaves to Cuba. Unlike those of African origin, the Chinese often signed contracts stipulating the terms of their labor -- hours worked per day, wages listed as 0 -- and were free Cuban citizens upon completion of their eight-year term. Eventually, Havana had the largest Chinatown in Latin America. The internationally known artist and protege of Picasso, Wilfredo Lam, was a descendent of a Chinese laborer and an African slave.To inspect and acquire more detailed information about this lot, please attend our live preview before the auction.

Du Fresnoy / Dryden DE ARTE GRAPHICA THE ART OF PAINTING 1695 First Edition Antique Art History  Poetry Dryden Translation

Lot 6045: Du Fresnoy / Dryden DE ARTE GRAPHICA THE ART OF PAINTING 1695 First Edition Antique Art History Poetry Dryden Translation

by National Book Auctions

July 27, 2014, 12:00 PM EST

Ithaca, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $70 - $200

Description: Title: De Arte Graphica. The Art of Painting by C. A. Fresnoy with Remarks. Translated into English, together with an Original Preface Containing a Parallel betwixt Painting and Poetry by Mr. Dryden. As Also a Short Account of the Most Eminent Painters, both Ancient and Modern, Continu'd Down to the Present Times, according to the Order of Their Succession. By Another HandAuthor: Charles Alphonse du Fresnoy - Charles Alphonse du Fresnoy, French painter and writer on his art, was born in Paris, son of an apothecary.He was destined for the medical profession, and well educated in Latin and Greek; but, having a natural propensity for the fine arts, he would not apply to his intended vocation, and was allowed to learn the rudiments of design under Perrier and Vouet. At the age of twenty-one he went off to Rome, with no resources; he drew ruins and architectural subjects.After two years thus spent he re-encountered his old fellow-student Pierre Mignard, and by his aid obtained some amelioration of his professional prospects. He studied Raphael and the antique, went in 1633 to Venice, and in 1656 returned to France. During two years he was now employed in painting altar-pieces in the château du Raincy, landscapes, etc. His death was caused by an attack of apoplexy followed by palsy; he expired at Villiers-le-Bel, near Paris. He never married.His pictorial works are few; they are correct in drawing, with something of the Caracci in design, and of Titian in colouring, but wanting fire and expression, and insufficient to keep his name in any eminent repute.He is remembered now almost entirely as a writer rather than painter. His Latin poem, "De arte graphica," was written during his Italian sojourn, and embodied his observations on the art of painting; it may be termed a critical treatise on the practice of the art, with general advice to students. The precepts are sound according to the standard of his time; the poetical merits slender enough. The Latin style is formed chiefly on Lucretius and Horace.This poem was first published by Mignard, and has been translated into several languages. In 1668 it was turned into French by Roger de Piles; Dryden translated the work into English prose; and a rendering into verse by Mason followed, to which Sir Joshua Reynolds added some annotations. (Biographical information courtesy of Wikipedia), John Dryden - John Dryden was an influential English poet, literary critic, translator, and playwright who dominated the literary life of Restoration England to such a point that the period came to be known in literary circles as the Age of Dryden. Walter Scott called him "Glorious John." He was made Poet Laureate in 1668.Publisher: Printed by J. Heptinstall for W.

The "Short Account of the Most Eminent Painters..." by Richard Graham has its own title page, but the pagination is continuous.

Estimated Price: $70 - $200

Description: Title: A Defence of southern slavery: Against the Attacks of Henry Clay and Alex'r. Campbell. In Which Much of the False Philanthropy and Mawkish Sentimentalism of the Abolitionists Is Met and Refuted. In Which It Is Moreover Shown That the Association of the White and Black Races in the Relation of Master and Slave Is the Appointed Order of God, As Set Forth in the Bible, and Constitutes the Best Social Condition of Both Races, and the Only True Principle of RepublicanismAuthor: Iveson L BrookesPublisher: Printed by Robinson and CarlisleCity: Hamburg, South CarolinaYear: 1851Printing Information: First EditionBinding Style: Other - see descriptionPagination: 48 pagesWidth: 5.25" Height: 8.25"Book Details: This pamphlet contains a review of Mr Clay's "Letter on emancipation" and strictures on Mr. Campbell's "Tract for the people of Kentucky". These enemies of the South threw their mischievous productions betore the country during the canvass in Kentucky, for a Convention to alter the Constitution of that state. Their professed object was to effect the abolition of slavery in Kentucky. The author answered them because he conceived, that while each pretended to write for the people of Kentucky, and in reference to slavery in that state, both made a general attack upon the institution of slavery everywhere, but more especially, as existing in tlie Southern States of this confederacy. He now presents these answers to the public in pamphlet form, because he desires to cast the mite of his influence into the scale of Southern rights at this crisis, and hopes this humble tract will assist Southerners to form correct views of their rights, and of the rectitude of their institution as appointed of God and sustained by the Bible. The letter on emancipation fell into my hands in the spring of l849, and the Review was written and published in the Augusta Constitutionalist, in May, and was copied and circulated in Kentuckv, during their Convention canvass.Condition / Notes: Antique string-bound pamphlet is bound in original printed wrappers. Book shows offsetting to title page. Binding is sound. Partially-uncut pages display occasional light foxing. For lots which include only books, our shipping charge applies to any address within the fifty United States.

Lot 6138: Thomas Cooper THE INSTITUTES OF JUSTINIAN WITH NOTES 1812 First US Edition Antique Roman Jurisprudence Parallel Latin & English Texts Legal Treatise Appendices

by National Book Auctions

July 27, 2014, 12:00 PM EST

Ithaca, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $70 - $200

Description: Title: The Institutes of Justinian. With NotesAuthor: Thomas Cooper - Thomas Cooper was an Anglo-American economist, college president and political philosopher. Cooper was described by Thomas Jefferson as "one of the ablest men in America" and by John Adams as "a learned ingenious scientific and talented madcap." Dumas Malone stated that "modern scientific progress would have been impossible without the freedom of the mind which he championed throughout life." His ideas were taken very seriously in his own time: there were substantial reviews of his writings, and some late eighteenth-century critics of materialism directed their arguments against Cooper, rather than against the better-known Joseph Priestley. (Biographical information courtesy of Wikipedia)Publisher: Printed for P. ByrneCity: PhiladelphiaYear: 1812Printing Information: First EditionBinding Style: HardcoverPagination: xiv/714 pages plus 2 pages of advertisementsWidth: 6" Height: 9.5"Book Details: "When I first undertook to publish Justinian's Institutes (that I might not renounce my accustomed studies) I contemplated nothing more than a republication of Harris's Edition, which has now become scarce; together with some additional notes, and a brief history of Roman Jurisprudence, by way of preface. On reading with attention Harris's Translation, I found the language so verbose, that I sat down to translate the first Book of the Institutes in my own way. It is true, my ear was better satisfied with my own performance; but I found so many co-incidences of expression, and so little room to improve the fidelity of Harris's Version, that I determined to adopt it as the groundwork of the present publication; and alter it not norther, than to condense the expressions where they seemed to me needlessly diffuse. By so doing, I have abridge it to the amount of about one fifth of the whole, without sacrificing any thing necessary to the sens. Some few periphrases I have retained, and some I have added, when the original seemed to require elucidation; but, upon the whole, my aim has been to render this a faithful translation in as few words as possible. Perhaps I may be blamed for taking this liberty with Dr. Harris's work. Had it been a piece of poetry, I should have left it untouched; but meaning to give to the public as good a translation as I could furnish, I saw no reason why I should needlessly occupy the time of the reader, or increase the bulk of the book, by religiously retaining all its redundancies and imperfection.I have inserted most of Harris's Notes, citing him where I have done so; but they are few and meagre. I have generally consulted the paraphrase of Theophilus, the short comments to the "Corpus Juri Civilis" of Gothofred, the translations and notes of Ferriere, Wood's Institutes, and Taylor's "Elements of the Civil Law.""Condition / Notes: Antique full-leather volume has detached front board and detaching rear board. Book lacks most of spine cover. Front and rear covers display rubbing and scuffing. Text block is intact. Previous owner's name and date of 1845 appear on detached front flyleaf. Pages exhibit scattered light foxing and (faint) water markings. Most of content consists of parallel Latin and English texts. For lots which include only books, our shipping charge applies to any address within the fifty United States. For lots which are not books, the stated shipping cost in this listing will apply only to addresses within the continental 48 states.

Description: Title: Ragged Dick; Or, Street Life in New York with the Boot-BlacksAuthor: Horation Alger, Jr. - Horatio Alger, Jr. was a prolific 19th-century American author, best known for his many juvenile novels about impoverished boys and their rise from humble backgrounds to lives of middle-class security and comfort through hard work, determination, courage, and honesty. His writings were characterized by the "rags-to-riches" narrative, which had a formative effect on America during the Gilded Age. Alger's name is often invoked incorrectly as though he himself rose from rags to riches, but that arc applied to his characters, not to the author. Essentially, all of Alger's novels share the same theme: a young boy struggles through hard work to escape poverty. Critics, however, are quick to point out that it is not the hard work itself that rescues the boy from his fate, but rather some extraordinary act of bravery or honesty, which brings him into contact with a wealthy elder gentleman, who takes the boy in as a ward. The boy might return a large sum of money that was lost or rescue someone from an overturned carriage, bringing the boy-and his plight-to the attention of some wealthy individual. It has been suggested that this reflects Alger's own patronizing attitude to the boys he tried to help.Alger secured his literary niche in 1868 with the publication of his fourth book "Ragged Dick," the story of a poor bootblack's rise to middle-class respectability, which was a huge success. His many books that followed were essentially variations on "Ragged Dick" and featured a cast of stock characters: the valiant hard-working, honest youth (who knew more Latin than the villain), the noble, mysterious stranger (whom the poor boy rescued and by whom he got rewarded), the snobbish youth (cousin), and the evil squire (uncle).In the 1870s, Alger took a trip to California to gather material for future books, but the trip had little influence on his writing. In the last decades of the 19th century, boys' tastes changed, and Alger's moral tone coarsened accordingly. The Puritan ethic had loosened its grip on America, and violence, murder, and other sensational themes entered Alger's works. Public librarians questioned whether his books should be made available to the young. By the time he died in 1899, he had published around a hundred volumes.

Greater comprehensiveness became the common ambition. Up to the early eighteenth century, English dictionaries had generally focused on "hard words" and their explanation, for example those of Thomas Blount and Edward Phillips in the generation before. With a change of attention, to include more commonplace words and those not of direct interest to scholars, the number of headwords in English dictionaries increased dramatically. Innovations were in the areas of common words, dialect, technical terms, and vulgarities. Thomas Chatterton, the literary forger, also obtained many sham-antique words from reading Bailey and Kersey.Bailey's "An Universal Etymological English Dictionary," from its publication in 1721, became the most popular English dictionary of the 18th century, and went through nearly thirty editions. It was a successor to Kersey's "A New English Dictionary" (1702), and drew on it. A supplementary volume of his dictionary appeared in 1727, and in 1730 a folio edition, the "Dictionarium Britannicum" containing many technical terms. Bailey had collaborators, for example John Martyn who worked on botanical terms in 1725.Samuel Johnson made an interleaved copy the foundation of his own "Johnson's Dictionary." The 1755 edition of Bailey's dictionary bore the name of Joseph Nicol Scott also; it was published years after Bailey's death, but months only after Johnson's dictionary appeared. Now often known as the "Scott-Bailey" or "Bailey-Scott" dictionary, it contained relatively slight revisions by Scott, but massive plagiarism from Johnson's work. A twentieth-century lexicographer, Philip Babcock Gove, attacked it retrospectively on those grounds. In all, thirty editions of the dictionary appeared, the last at Glasgow in 1802, in reprints and versions by different booksellers.Bailey's dictionary was also the basis of English-German dictionaries. These included those edited by Theodor Arnold (3rd edition, 1761), Anton Ernst Klausing (8th edition, 1792), and Johann Anton Fahrenkrüger (11th edition, 1810).Bailey also published a spelling-book in 1726; "All the Familiar Colloquies of Erasmus Translated," 1733, of which a new edition appeared in 1878; "The Antiquities of London and Westminster," 1726; "Dictionarium Domesticum," 1736; "Selections from Ovid and Phædrus"; and "English and Latin Exercises." In 1883 appeared "English Dialect Words of the Eighteenth Century as shown in the . . . Dictionary of N. Bailey," with an introduction by W. E. A. Axon (English Dialect Society), giving biographical and bibliographical details. (Information courtesy of Wikipedia)Publisher: Printed for T. Osborne, C. Hitch and L. Hawes, B. Dod, J.

Description: Title: The Works of John Bunyan. With an Introduction to Each Treatise, Notes, and a Sketch of His Life, Times, and ContemporariesAuthor: John Bunyan - John Bunyan was an English Christian writer and preacher, who is well known for his book "The Pilgrim's Progress." Though he became a non-conformist and member of an Independent church, and although he has been described both as a Baptist and as a Congregationalist, he himself preferred to be described simply as a Christian. He is remembered in the Church of England with a Lesser Festival on August 30, and on the liturgical calendar of the Episcopal Church (US) on August 29. Some other Churches of the Anglican Communion, such as the Anglican Church of Australia, honour him on the day of his death (August 31) together with St Aidan of Lindisfarne.Editor: George Offor - George Offor was an English book-collector who accumulated a massive personal library.Offor entered business as a bookseller at Tower Hill, London. He studied Hebrew, Greek and Latin and became an expert in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century English literature and theological writings.He had compiled the complete works of John Bunyan. However some of them got destroyed in a fire.He spent his days reading, researching, recording, comparing, and editing the works of Puritan John Bunyan. Offor's diligent labor concluded in 1854 with the printing of the three-volume, 2,800 page Works of John Bunyan. Now over a century and a half old, Offor's final product remains the most popular definitive collection of Bunyan in print.
