Böcker och handskrifter – från 1400-talet till idag

En bok är ett medium för kommunikation och ordet i sig hänger samman med trädet med samma namn – bok. Högst troligt är att benämningen har sitt ursprung i att tidiga indoeuropeiska böcker ristades på tunna skivor av bokträ som senare häftades ihop till böcker. De första böckerna bestod av handskrivna bokrullar som användes av de gamla grekerna men i och med Gutenbergs boktryckarkonst som uppkom på 1400-talet kunde boken mångfaldigas och spridas till fler människor världen över. Utöver ett intressant innehåll och en vacker typografi kan själva bokbandet och proveniensen vara av stort intresse – i synnerhet för samlare. Botanisera bland handinbundna samlarutföranden av August Strindberg, förstaupplagor med barnböcker från Astrid Lindgren, sumo-upplagor med verk från Helmut Newton till litteratur med kunglig proveniens och moderna konstkataloger. I Bukowskis kategori för böcker finner ni band, coffee table böcker, originalritningar, inkunabler, autografer, manuskript och handskrifter – från bokkonstens begynnelse till vår egen samtid!

Lucio Fontana & Guido Le Noci & Ugo Mulas: Manifiesto Blanco 1946. Spazialismo. Milano, Galleria Apollinaire Edizioni, 1966. 48 x 33 cm. 80 pp. Richly illustrated in colour. With facsimile of the original edition (1946) and translation into Italian, French, English and German. Edition of 2000 copies. Publisher’s slipcase. Spine of book faded, slight or insignificant wear. With 3 scratched holes by Fontana on front flyleaf, circled in ballpoint and signed. Provenance: Bookplate of Gerard Bonnier (1917-1987). The Manifiesto blanco, or White Manifesto was written in 1946 by artists and students in Buenos Aires under the direction of Lucio Fontana during his time in Argentina. The manifesto emphasized the importance of new technologies as they pertained to the arts and the pursuit of integrating art and science (Wikipedia). The present edition is a retrospective and tribute to Lucio Fontana. The reproductions are identical to those in the original Manifesto Blanco from 1946, in which Lucio Fontana set the parameters for his art movement, Spatialism.

BOK, ovanligt fotoalbum med Carl XVI Gustaf & Silvia.

Photo album from a State visit in West Germany 1979: Besuch I. I. M. M. König Carl XVI Gustaf und Königin Silvia von Schweden in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland vom 20. bis 27 März 1979. [=printed title page]. [Germany, 1979]. Oblong folio (24,5 x 30 cm). (23) leaves with 59 mounted original photos in sizes 23 x 17 and 17 x 12 cm respectively. Light brown blind tooled polished leather (by Helmuth Halbach), in blank dust jacket and housed in a custom made vellum backed cloth box. Photos mounted on thick paper with tissue guards. Most of the pictures are slightly discoloured due to aging, taking a reddish tone. One letter from Auswärtiges Amt and a printed card from bookbinder loosely inserted. From the collection of ambassador Sven Backlund. As can be seen from the accompanying letter, this album was prepared as a gift for the Swedish ambassador Sven Backlund by the German Foreign Office to commemorate the state visit of the King and Queen of Sweden in March 1979. The photos, by unknown photographers, cover a broad spectra of activities from the visit. The first pictures show the King and Queen together with German president Walter Scheel, followed by pictures from dinners, parades and rallies, a visit to a coal mine, the inspection of a Porsche race car, a boat trip and folk dancing, among other things. Neither the letter nor the album itself state how many copies were made of this luxurious album. One might assume that copies were made for the King and Queen, and for president Scheel, but apart from them, the number must have been very limited.

BOK, med inskription av Maupassant.

Guy de Maupassant: Les Soeurs Rondoli. Paris, Paul Ollendorff, 1884. 18 x 12 cm. [4] + 312 pp. Contemporary green half leather, spine with 4 raised bands, gilt flowers in 4 compartments, marbled boards and endpapers, sprinkled edges. Wrappers not preserved. Spine faded and lightly worn, slight rubbing of front corners, minimal paper loss to half title, front hinge partly cracked. Internally a bit toned in margins, first and last few leaves slightly spotted. First edition, first impression on ordinary paper. Inscribed by Maupassant to Baron de Vaux (to whom the story “Un Sage” is also dedicated in print on p. 183). Inscription in ink to half-title: “au Baron de Vaux / son ami / Guy de Maupassant”. The person behind the nom de plume Baron de Vaux is not known. He was a sports columnist, author of books on duels, and is stated to have served as the model for the main character of Bel-Ami. Maupassant’s novel Bel-Ami was published in 1885, and describes the social climbing of the ex-soldier and journalist Georges Duroy, who signs his articles “Du Roy”. In 1883 Baron de Vaux published the book Les Tireurs au pistolet, for which Maupassant wrote the preface. Robert Baldick states in The Duel. A History of Duelling (1970), that “The painter Henri Gervex had quarrelled with the Baron de Vaux, who, being the offended party and knowing Gervex to be a good swordsman, had announced his attention of calling him out for a pistol duel. Hearing of this and not wanting his friend to be killed or wounded, Maupassant hurried round to Gastinne-Renette’s shooting gallery, where he spent the morning firing at a number of target cards, scoring bull’s-eye after bull’seye. He then took the cards home and scattered them casually on a table in his smoking room. The Baron de Vaux, who came to lunch with him that day, saw them and expressed his admiration at the writer’s fantastic skills as a marksman. ‘But those aren’t my cards’, said Maupassant. ‘They are the work of Henri Gervex. He shoots at Gastinne’s every morning.’ The baron changed colour, and the next day Gervex learned to his relief that the threatened duel had been called off.” Vicaire V:612.
