BANDEIRA, MANUEL
50 Poemas Escolhidos Pelo Autor.
. [Rio de Janeiro, 1955 ] Ministerio da educacao e cultura, servicio de documantacao. (Os cadernos de cultura ) 86pp. paperback. wrappers and text sl. browned. With a handwritten dedication to Ronald Bottrall, by the author, signed and dated Rio (?) 1955.
¶ Bandeira (1886 - 1968) wrote over 20 books of poetry and prose. In 1904, he found out that he suffered from tuberculosis, which encouraged him to move from São Paulo to Rio de Janeiro, because of Rio's tropical beach weather. In 1922, after an extended stay in Europe where Bandeira met many prominent authors and painters, he contributed poems of political and social criticism to the Modernist Movement in São Paulo. Bandeira began to publish his most important works in 1924. Bandeira became a respected Brazilian author and wrote articles in several newspapers and magazines, as well as teaching Hispanic Literature in Rio de Janeiro. Bandeira began to translate into Portuguese canonical plays of world literature in 1956, which he continued to do until his last days. He died in Rio de Janeiro. Bandeira's poems are of a unique delicacy and beauty. Recurrent themes can be found in his works: the love of women, his childhood in the Northeast city of Recife, friends, health problems. His delicate health affected his poems, in a manner similar to the last poems of Jorge Luis Borges. Many of Manuel Bandeira's poems depict the limits of the human body. [157C].

ME'AH BERACHOT
An 18th-Century Miniature Book of Blessings and Prayers.
. Facsimile edition of the copy held in a private Collection, New York One of a fine limited edition of 550 copies: This Me'ah Berachot manuscript, a miniature prayer book, is an exquisite exe of how Jewish heritage can be passed down for the delight and enrichment of future generations. It was handwritten and illuminated in Central Europe during the eighteenth century, and is today in the hands of a private collector in New York. Traditionally, pious Jews seek to recite blessings on at least one hundred occasions daily. This unique manuscript, the name Me'ah Berachot means 'one hundred blessings', is a compendium of blessings, each allocated to a time of day or to a special event. It gathers together morning prayers, Grace after Meals, prayers on retiring at night (Qriat Sh'ema), petitions for the safety of travellers and many other texts to be recited on special occasions, e.g. on seeing a beautiful tree, on hearing thunder or on wearing a new garment for the first time. Since it also includes three blessings specifically related to womanly duties (mitzvoth nashim) - on breadmaking, ritual bathing and kindling the Sabbath lights - the book was probably commissioned as a special gift to a woman. Such a splendid prayer book may well have been presented to a bride and would doubtless have been treasured by generations of her descendants. Indeed it is a miniature handbook of Jewish life intended for Jews of all ages. Besides the beautifully written text, the manuscript contains an illuminated title-page and twenty-nine miniature panels illustrating some of the activities associated with the blessings included. Each painting is headed by a cartouche containing the relevant blessing, preceded by directions on how to recite it, written in a more cursive Yiddish script. Additional miniatures fascinatingly depict a variety of everyday genre scenes - lighting the Sabbath candles, family mealtimes, tending the garden, putting on new clothes, entering the ritual bath, and even the then common medical practice of bloodletting. The manuscript’s seventy pages measure 36 x 40 mm (1.4" x 1.6"). It is bound in its original gold-tooled leather case with handmade silver clasps, bosses and corner plates. Despite the minute size of the book, the script is so clear that all the texts can be read with ease. This little book is a remarkable example of the revival of Hebrew manuscript illumination in the eighteenth century. At that time, long after the invention of printing, it was recognized that a handwritten and finely illustrated book offered a sense of luxury and respect for religious ritual unmatched since the Middle Ages. The craftsman-made binding of morocco leather is tooled in 23-carat gold and adorned with solid silver clasps, corner-plates and bosses made in one of the last silversmith's ateliers in Milan, Italy. The presentation case is crafted in full leather, lined in suede, and holds both the facsimile and the commentary volume.The commentary volume contains both a full translation and a full description of the manuscript and the Jewish world from which it comes. It is written by Iris Fishof, formerly Chief Curator of Judaica and Jewish Ethnography at The Israel Museum, Jerusalem, who also describes each miniature and provides a scholarly analysis of the texts that they illustrate. It is translated and edited by Jeremy Schonfield.The commentary volume was printed on 90gsm Fabriano Ingres and bound in fine-grain goatskin to match the presentation case. The facsimile is housed in its own container within the suede-lined goatskin presentation box which also holds the commentary volume. This unique facsimile was printed in a strictly limited edition of 550 copies (400 on vellum numbered 1 - 400 and 150 on specially milled parchment numbered 401 -500. Our copy has the number 495. The remaining 50 Ad Personam copies were numbered I - L). The plates have been destroyed (with rabbinic permission and in compliance with Halachic requirements) and no further copies will be issued. The edition is now sold out.[ DL 4/2 ]. (ISBN: 094822346) .
