Book Title: Sleepwalking in a curious alter-reality (Click for more info)
Author: Neo Rauch

Limited to 1,000 numbered copies, each signed by Neo Rauch.Bursting with radiant and unsettling juxtapositions, Neo Rauch’s paintings are wormholes into worlds of startling psychological power and cultural collisions. His scenes involve the viewer in a history that is at once mythic, intimate, and present. Through a deep consideration of philosophy, art history, literature, and his own dreamscape, Rauch’s paintings depict the precipices of progress and the struggles of communication. Electrified by their rich palettes, Rauch’s fragmented landscapes and timeless characters dance between pop and baroque, social and psychological, graphic and painterly.

Born in Leipzig in 1960, Rauch learned his trade behind the Iron Curtain. His influences and interests were shaped by personal hardship and the tumultuous changes of East Germany after the Wall fell. In the late 1980s, having finished his studies at the Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig under Arno Rink and Bernhard Heisig, he explored diverse approaches to painting in dialogue with works he encountered by Francis Bacon, the New Wild painters, and the pre-Renaissance painters he saw during his travels in Italy. By 1993, he had arrived at the unique style of intertwining figuration and abstraction that characterizes his oeuvre and has brought him international attention and respect.

Only a book of truly epic scale could begin to unpack the emotional, historical, and formal density of Rauch’s canvases. Comprising over 450 pages, including more than 250 large-scale reproductions, this monograph is the most inclusive collection of his work to date. It offers a generous range of writings that illuminate the personal, symbolic, and formal complexities of Rauch’s world. Wolfgang Büscher’s open and sensitive account of a walk through Rauch’s neighborhood reveals the painter’s compassion and modesty. Harald Kunde tracks Rauch’s stylistic development through its main semantic threads and historical influences. Gary Tinterow draws from his work on Rauch’s exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum to offer the reader a guide to the symbols that form the painter’s extensive mythology. These essays complement Rauch’s work with nuanced insights while allowing the images room to speak on their own. Within this atlas, readers will discover the rich density and enigmatic openness of Rauch’s paintings.Still in cellophane unread limited edition of 1000 signed copies.This Book retails at 900 pounds

Manuscript Title: Original manuscript letter 1842 Jacksonville Illinois to Barnsley YKS (Click for more info)
Author: John Armitage Junior to George Darwent
Price: GBP 105.00
Non-Fiction Published: 1842

Original 1842 manuscript settler’s letter, cross-written, from John Armitage Jnr of Alton and Jacksonville, Illinois to George Darwent at Flash House, Cawthorne, Barnsley, Yorkshire, England. Dated 5 June and 25 June 1842. A folio of 4pp., c. 26 x 42cm, and some 4200 words, closely cross-written. There is some wear and splitting along the folds and a little wear at the edges. There are early clear paper tape reinforcements along three folds (not modern sticky tape and no stains). Throughout the whole letter there are only perhaps ten or twelve words that are missing or indecipherable. Included in the lot is a full typed transcription.

The writer is literate, informative and forthright (probably a Yorkshireman). He and his family seem to have migrated in the previous 18 months or so. He has no intention of returning to England “to be contemned, despised, & rejected, because of my humble circumstances”. It’s no bowl of roses though: “The price of our farm is $1200, we paid $675 in advance; when that was paid we had not one cent of Money in the House left, nor had we any Agricultural implements, or seed, or provision and but very little stock; the fact is we had to run in debt $23 for Hogs, to make our Bacon for the coming season”. He is wary: “Our American neighbours, are quite affable and cheerfull… they show good breeding and refinement… they are polite in their address & genteel in their manners… yet it is here like in all other Countries, selfishness wants watching with a scrutinizing eye and the more so, as the Americans are full of enterprise, barter & trade.” He notes later, in a rant, that “The Americans do not like the idea of paying taxes”(!) and has a special antipathy: “the big-bugs from the Eastern States have been here Land speculating & monopolized a great Amot of Land in Illinois, and have got themselves nicely bit by the operations… curse the Brokers say I, and let every merchant instead of having his broker to consult do his own business. these dam’d curses they are at the Head and tail of all buisiness & just has things their own way."

There is much about the price of everything from tobacco to horses and letters to England (and the local post master taking “French Leave” with the newspapers he was supposed to receive from Leeds). Of religion: “The Methodist persuasion, has the ascendency here, yet there is a variety of other religions, the Kamelites and Mormans, are the latest origin. the Mormans are building another Solomans Temple at Nauvoo… the Kamelites are on a new plan to Heaven, and have found a nigher way, be it by some 15,000 Miles. I suppose they have straightened the Crooked Path.”

The use of some terms is interesting: “We have no yeast here, but makes our substitute for raising bread of Saluratus.” “I have been fortunate enough to loose no Money in shin Plasters as yet.” “Mr Van Buren has been at Jacksonville this last week, and was made much of by the Loco-focoes.” Were such terms familiar to the people of Yorkshire in 1842?

Places mentioned: Jacksonville (and the Morgan House Tavern), Carrolton, Shawneetown, Springfield, Alton, St. Louis, Ioway, Kentuckey, Missouri.

Persons mentioned: one of his sisters is “Mary”; Dr. James Coward is treating his mother in Jacksonville; Lord Morpeth apparently passed through; Thomas Lisles (or Lilles) is a fellow migrant but about to return to England; “Old Jackey”, Uncle Joseph, “Jim”, W. Armitage, Grandfather Johnson, “Math”, Uncle Edward Armitage and Aunt Sarah are all in England.

This item is held in Australia, and what it’s doing here is something of a mystery. There is no reference in the letter itself to Australia but an addendum on the address page refers to the price of flour. The writer dealt with this in the body of the letter, even to the extent of quoting shipping costs to Liverpool and, as a farmer, it would obviously have been something of interest to him. The addendum notes that flour is selling “at present in Sydney at 75 shilling per i. cwt.” He doesn’t say where he got the information from. It’s possible or even likely that another member of the family migrated to Australia.


Postage cost on this item is A$12.00 (£7.00) worldwide and includes registered post and insurance.
