Publication of Confucius
The First European Publication of the Chinese Philosopher Confucius - 1687
The earliest appearance in Europe of the works of Confucius: "Confucius Sinarum Philosophus, sive scientia latine exposita". Paris, Andrea Cramoisy for Daniel Horthemels, 1686-87. Small folio volume including a folding engraved portrait of Confucius and a folding engraved map of China, several engraved headpieces and initials; a fine copy in an 18th-century binding. The first European printing of the works of Confucius and an early Enlightenment milestone, precursor to the great eighteenth-century enthusiasm for China, a development that had a dramatic influence on European culture, most obviously in the decorative arts and architecture, but also in the currents of scholarly and intellectual writing. Leibniz and Voltaire were among the more important writers to adapt Chinese ideas, quite apart from ambitious projects such as Du Halde's great "Description".
Miró, Tzara - Parler Seul

 

Joan Miró; Tristan Tzara - Parler Seul, 1948 - 1950
"This book represents a particularly effective collaboration between artist and author. Miró's brilliantly spontaneous and amorphous images, drawn directly on the stone with very few preparatory sketches, have the inventive verve of Tzara's random verses." - The Artist and the Book. Signed Limited First Edition, number 158 of only 200 copies.
