MY SISTER-LIFE. Boris Pasternak, illustrator Yuri Kuper. MY SISTER-LIFE.
Yuri Kuper. [New York]: Limited Editions Club, (1991). First of this edition. One of 250 numbered copies Illustrated with six original etchings by Yuri Kuper SIGNED by the illustrator on the colophon page, and this copy with each etching signed in pencil by Yuri Kuper -- though not issued as such. One of the smallest limitations of the club. Translated by Mark Rudman. "In Russian poetry, Boris Pasternak's My Sister-Life is the equivalent of The Waste Land, Spring and All, and Harmonium. But it is also accessible to the general reader, and belongs on a slender shelf of great love poems . . . Pasternak is an uncompromisingly complex poetic stylist, and his meticulous attention to structure, etymology, and the phonetic qualities of words makes his poetry a formidable challenge for the translator. Mark Rudman renders Pasternak's poetic masterpiece with verve and intelligence" (from cover of recent Northwestern University edition). Large folio (16 x 23") with gray goatskin spine and treated handmade paper boards using the same paper as the text. Housed in a slipcase of gray linen-rayon. Printed letterpress on paper made by hand to resemble the sort of stock produced in the 1920s in the Soviet Union. Monthly Letter laid in. A beautiful edition printed on handmade paper recycling various Cyrillic printings. Kuper's work is found in the permanent collections of MoMA, Moscow Museum of Fine Arts, Fonds National d'Art Contemporain in Paris, etc. Publishers' newsletter laid in. Fine in a fine slipcase. WITH EACH PRINT SIGNED BY THE ARTIST, YURI KUPER.

THE WORKS OF MR. FRANCIS RABELAIS: Doctor in Physick. Containing Five Books of the Lives, Heroick Deeds and Sayings of Gargantua and His Sonne Pantagruel. Francis. Robinson Rabelais, W. Heath. THE WORKS OF MR. FRANCIS RABELAIS: Doctor in Physick. Containing Five Books of the Lives, Heroick Deeds and Sayings of Gargantua and His Sonne Pantagruel.
London: Navarre Society Ltd. no-date[1921]. First thus. Two volumes with nearly 100 illustrations by Robinson including the two frontis pieces. Originally published by Grant Richards in 1904 in a quarto edition, privately reprinted for the Navarre Society in this reduced (octavo) format. Geoffrey Beale (Book Collector No. 40) notes: "To those who think of him as a gentle humorist, perhaps the most surprising of Heath Robinson's books is the edition of Rabelais....To the unprepared reader, finding here visions of hell that are truly horrific, and a raw power and earthiness that is exactly in tune with Rabelais' narrative style, might well ask whether this is the work of the same artist." Shimmering blue cloth (Blanck's AA) boards with gold stamped lettering, design and rule; page top edges gilt. Spines slightly sunned (gilt still bright), light unavoidable offset to endpapers, rear endpaper volume I cracked (hinge still tight) -- an attractive set.
