Morgana Edizioni, Florence, 2004. Limited edition of 500 copies. Book is in Very Good+ condition: light wear on cover; binding is tight and pages are clean and bright. From the book: The artist "has a passion, a 'companion in life,' that is at the core of his artistic production - Filo, a primary coloured (blue, yellow, red) spiky string-object made out of acrylic paint. He is a performer, marker, indicator, and magician. He used Filo to tie up, underline, and rethink the world around him. . . . Public and social interaction is a cenral element in Lorenzo's work. He 'instructus' us not through didactic statements but through allusions in his work to other artists and artworks - and through the creation of forms, shapes, and images that challenge us to see unconsidered forms, shapes, and images and encourage us to rethink our assumptions about life and art." Text in English and Italian. Numerous color and b/w illustrations, including full-page illustrations.

6 The Moral System of Dante's Inferno Reade, W. H. V.
London, U. K. Oxford at the Clarendon Press 1909 Hard Copy Good No Jacket 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
Oxford at the Clarendon Press, London, 1909.

No dust jacket. From the introduction: "Aesthetic enjoyment and erudition are very different things, but the line must not be drawn too sharply; and if Dante did mean to represent the working of Divine Justice in the spiritual world, our actual delight in his poem as literature must partly depend upon an understanding of his moral philosophy. Even the most technical and scholastic discussions may thus lead to a fine sort of artistic appreciation,and not the expert only but the general reader is suffering a disadvantage so long as the philosophical foundations of the Divine Comedy are unrevealed."

8 The Villas of Palladio Trager, Phillip; Scully, Vincent
Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A. New York Graphic Society 1986 0821216392 / 9780821216392 Stated 1st Edition Very Good Very Good 4to - over 9" - 12" tall Inscribed By Artist
New York Graphic Society, Boston, 1986. Stated 1st Edition. Inscribed by artist Philip Trager on title page as follows: "To Marcia, With warm regards [signed] Phil November 1986". Book is in Very Good condition: top edge a little dirty; pages a little wavy; binding is tight and square, and pages are clean and bright. Dust jacket is in Very Good condition: a little dirty; one chip on bottom edge of front flap fold; not price-clipped. From the dust jacket: "Photographer Philip Trager has managed to lift the Paladian villas out of the developed environment that now surrounds them, portraying these magnificent structures as they originally appeared in the virgin countryside of Renaissance Italy. At the same time, Trager's photographs emphasize the elegance of the villas' geometric forms so lovingly emulated by the postmodernists. The duality of vision prompts architect Michael Graves, in his introduction to this volume, to celebrate these splendid back-and-white images as a rewarding contribution to the existing commentary on Palladio. Written by distinguished architectural historian Vincent Scully, the text...places the architect and his works in context of their times. Scully also offers brief, lively introducitons to each of the villas."
