Fine Judaica: Printed Books, Manuscripts, Autograph Letters, Ceremonial Objects, Maps & Graphic Art

The 352-lot auction will feature a Collection of Holy Land Maps offered from a private collection in London, Judaic art from the Estate of the late Rabbi & Mrs. Abraham Karp and exceptional offerings of American-Judaica.

The star lot of the auction is one of particular rarity: The first complete Jewish Prayer-Book printed in the New World--New York, 1766. Written according to the order of the Spanish and Portuguese Jews and translated into English by Isaac Pinto, this scarce first edition, first issue, seldom seen at auction, is one of the singular, most important printed books of Jewish Americana. The pre-auction estimate is $100,000-150,000 (Lot 8).

Another highly significant American lot is the complete monthly (and partial weekly) run of Isaac Leeser’s The Occident, the first successful periodical recording Jewish life in America in the middle decades of the 19th century. This set of 26 volumes, printed in Philadelphia, from 1843-1869, is magnificently bound and estimated at $100,000-150,000 (Lots 18 and 19).

Los Angeles Vintage Paperback Collectors Show
Now in its 36th year, this convention was started by Tom Lesser, who invited dealers, fellow collectors and paperback enthusiasts to his home in Chatworth, California in 1980. Since then, it has grown to be the world’s largest vintage paperback gathering. This year’s show will feature more than 80 dealer tables with tens of thousands of vintage paperbacks for sale, from inexpensive filler copies to the most elusive and rare collectibles in the hobby. In addition to collectible paperbacks, you’ll also find pulp magazines, original illustration art, hardbound science fiction and mystery books, and more. There is no telling what might show up!

Over the years, an important attraction of the show has been its exciting roster of guest authors and artists. It has included such notables as Robert Bloch (18 years); A. E. Van Vogt, Ray Bradbury, Poul Anderson, and Fredrik Pohl (all for over 10 years); and the show’s champ, William F. Nolan (with over 30 years of appearances). This year the show will feature approximately fifty guests who will be available to meet the attendees and sign their works for free!

THE LIBRARY OF THE LATE HUGH SELBOURNE, M.D.

"I set out from the start to broaden my outlook and to learn as much as I could about the beautiful world we live in, and the way in which people have expressed themselves, not only scientifically, but spiritually, through literature and the fine arts."

Hugh Selbourne (1906-1973) was a Manchester physician of French-Jewish birth. Born in Paris, he qualified in London in the 1920s, and moved to Manchester in 1938 where he remained for the rest of his life. He began collecting books as a student and continued for the next forty years - filling his "Lumber Room" with purchases from Sherratt and Hughes, Bob Walmsley of Shaw's Bookshop, J.G. Wilson of Bumpus, and R.G. Booth at Hay, amongst others. The remainder of the Library will be sold in Oxford in autumn 2015.

Book Artists' Panel Discussion
Please join MaryAnn Miller, Liz Mitchell, Maria Pisano, and Maryann Riker for a lively panel on the making of artists' books from A to Z. The moderator will be Karen Guancione, another New Jersey "woman of the book," whose interdisciplinary work includes printmaking, papermaking, and the book arts. A reception will follow the panel discussion.

4:15pm

EXHIBITION: February 1st - June 30th, 2015
Selected works of four New Jersey women artists—MaryAnn Miller, Liz Mitchell, Maria Pisano, and Maryann Riker—are featured in a special invitational exhibit this spring in Skillman Library. On display are over fifty striking artists’ books and other works on paper created by these four accomplished artists. Although at first glance it may be difficult to find a common thread among the rich array of materials and formats that appear in these works, it is their storytelling that acts as the unifying element among all four artists. They all tell deeply felt stories about past and present histories—both personal and collective.

The work of MaryAnn Miller is inspired by her love of literature and reading the daily news. Her intensely realized works often tell stories about the treatment of women, ranging from the effects of war to the abandonment of a daughter in a convent. She also recounts how coal played a part in her family history. Liz Mitchell shares her memories and experiences through her art. She draws source materials from personal history, current events, dreams and myths. Several of her works are based on her dreams recorded in journals over a span of years. Her interest in fairytales inspired her retelling of the Grimm Brothers story of the twelve dancing princesses. Maria Pisano explores the nature of time, memory, and history. Her works record the complex layers of experiences whether she is telling a story of her own personal journey or remembering the collective trauma and loss experienced by a nation in a single day. Maryann Riker collects everyday ephemera—buttons, vintage advertisements, old photographs, ribbons, lace, jewelry—and creates colorful, whimsical books that suggest lighthearted stories, but that invariably convey thoughtful messages about gender, race, and consumerism.
