  • Publisher: David Fickling Books
  • Format: Hardcover
First edition, first printing. SIGNED to title-page. One of very few copies of this beguiling and essential first edition to have also been dated by the author on publication day - "6 Nov. 03." This makes it both a rare and distinctive copy to own. It is uncommon for Philip Pullman to embellish his books with anything more than an example of his signature. "Lyra's Oxford" is a wholly delightful addition to the HDM universe, and opens two years after the conclusion of "The Amber Spyglass" - in the comfort and familiarity of Jordan College, where Lyra and her daemon, Pantalaimon, sit on the sun-drenched roof looking out over all of Oxford. I seem to recall it was in The Guardian's early review of the book when the author was first and so aptly described as a "gentle, agnostic liberal-humanist visionary" - now, that's not often a characterisation deployed for a writer who appeals to the child reader as much as an adult audience. But then again, there are few writers who have created a body of work so enduringly laced with fascination. And this miniature wonder of a volume, with its similar broad range of age appeal, is most certainly well worth acquiring - especially so, given the rarity appeal of this excellent example. A Very Fine copy, as issued in the publisher's red cloth boards. With engravings by John Lawrence. 49 pages.

He became a book seller and set up a shop in Mewsgate, Charing Cross where he collected Daniel Defoe editions.

XXI, [1 blank], 264, [1], [1 blank] pp.First edition of "the historic cornerstone of the study [of mummification] in English. For the time at which it appeared, the work was a monumental undertaking. Based on scholarly research and practical experience, Pettigrew's work was a summation of almost all that was known concerning Egyptian funerary practices. He compiled all the ancient sources and commented on them, as well as discussing many examples of mummified remains investigated by or known to him. The work is illustrated by Georges Cruikshank (better known for his satirical drawings) that are the product of careful observation" (Peck).With the bookplate of the British lawyer and politician Bernard John Seymour Coleridge, 2nd Baron Coleridge (1851-1927).

First edition of the author's classic work. Octavo, original blue cloth, illustrated. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the half-title page, "comes to you with greetings from Misty and Marguerite Henry." Near fine in the original dust jacket with a chip to the foot of the spine and wear to the crown. Marguerite Henry's Newbery Honor Book has captivated generations with its thrilling descriptions of true incidents from the tiny island of Chincoteague, and its realistic yet wonderfully magical atmosphere. This story of an animal brought into captivity poignantly reveals the powerful opposing forces of humans and nature. Over nearly five decades, Henry authored "some four dozen books that introduced young readers to animals in the great outdoors. weaving the romance and history of mankind's association with the animal world into her illustrated texts" (New York Times). Of those books, Misty of Chincoteague is the best-known and most-loved. The delightful story, inspired by a real Assateague horse, follows the adventures of the freedom-loving colt Misty and two children who dream of owning her. First printing, with "A" on copyright page. With color endpapers and numerous in-text illustrations--many full-page, and with two color double-page illustrations--by Wesley Dennis, "whose beautiful drawings and watercolor illustrations add great appeal to most of the author's works" (Silvey, 305). Basis for the 1961 film Misty.

Model of the Bell X-1, boldly signed by pilot Chuck Yeager. The piece measures 14 inches in length, 10 inches in height and 11 inches in width. In near fine condition. The Bell X-1, (Bell Model 44), is a rocket-engine-powered aircraft, designated originally as the XS-1, and was a joint National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics-U.S. Army Air Forces-U.S. Air Force supersonic research project built by Bell Aircraft. Conceived during 1944 and designed and built in 1945, it achieved a speed of nearly 1,000 miles per hour (1,600 km/h; 870 kn) in 1948. A derivative of this same design, the Bell X-1A, having greater fuel capacity and hence longer rocket burning time, exceeded 1,600 miles per hour (2,600 km/h; 1,400 kn) in 1954. The X-1, piloted by Chuck Yeager, was the first manned airplane to exceed the speed of sound in level flight and was the first of the X-planes, a series of American experimental rocket planes (and non-rocket planes) designed for testing new technologies.

By the author of Ars Philtron, and the Magister and Verdelet of the Cultus Sabbati this volume is ".an extensive grimoire of Wortcunning, or plant-magic, The Pleasure Garden addresses the secret knowledge of trees and herbs as delivered to man by the Fallen Angels.

Photography by Peter Beste. Edited by Johan Kugelberg. Introduction by Jon "Metalion" Kristiansen. Brooklyn, New York: Vice Books, 2009. Third edition, limited to 4,000 copies. Over the course of eight years, Beste traveled to Norway thirteen times to photograph the blackest of the black: apolitical and anti-Christian separatist self-preservationists. He came away with more than 200 images of both the absurd and the deadly serious, real and fake blood, church crosses and inverted ones worn as the jewelry de rigeur, all set against the country's idyllic landscape. This unprecedented photographic journey is accompanied by a black metal history timeline, from Norway's conversion to Christianity to the arrival of every classic band and landmark album; additional photographs and articles from Norway's Slayer Mag, and tabloid stories on some of the infamous events associated with the movement. Signed by Beste on the front flyleaf. Folio. Original pictorial boards; issued without a dust jacket. A fine copy.

In the catalogue it is noted that Walter Crane wrote of Morris's far-reaching aesthetic philosophy, "if it has not turned all British craftsmen into artists or all British artists into craftsmen, it has done not little to expand and socialise the idea of art, and (perhaps it is not too much to say) has made the tasteful English house with its furniture and decorations a model for the civilised world" (PMM 367).

  • Publisher: London: Samuel Bagster, 1815
London: Samuel Bagster, 1815. A Superb Early Twentieth Century 'Cosway' Binding by Rivière & Son [COSWAY BINDING]. RIVIÈRE & SON, binders. WALTON, Izaac. COTTON, Charles. The Complete Angler; or, Contemplative Man's Recreation: Being a Discourse on Rivers, Fish-Ponds, and Fishing. In two parts. London: Samuel Bagster, 1815. Second Bagster Edition. Octavo (8 13/16 x 5 5/8 inches; 224 x 143 mm.). [xi] 12-514 (including seventeen-page appendix), [20 index] pp. Fifteen full-page plates; eight after Wale, two music plates, two of fishing tackle, the cartouche of the title-page of the 1653 first edition on half-title, all engraved by Philip Audinet; a portrait of Walton after Huysmans engraved by C. Hayter; a portrait of Cotton after Lely engraved by J. Linnell. In addition there are seventeen silver engravings of fish; a map of the River Lea and one of the River Dove; a facsimile of Walton's autograph and one of Cotton's; and seven engravings in the text, all by Audinet. There are six engravings in the text by G. Greig after Linnell and also two large woodcuts in the text. Inserted facing p. 472 is a fine pen & ink drawing signed 'Piscator' (watermarked J. Whatman 1824). Bound by Rivière & Son ca. 1910 (stamp-signed in gilt on front turn-in). Full olive green crushed levant morocco. Both covers elaborately decorated in gilt with fish, flowers and intricate pointillé. The front cover with a fine oval miniature painting of Izaac Walton under curved glass within a gilt pointillé frame. The rear cover with a fine oval miniature painting of Charles Cotton under curved glass within a gilt pointillé frame. Spine with five raised bands, decoratively paneled, tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments. Double-ruled gilt board edges, elaborate gilt turn ins decorated with fish, fish baskets and floral pointillé. Green watered silk liners and endleaves, top edge gilt, others uncut. Spine lightly sunned. Housed in its original green morocco edged, chamois lined, faux aligator over board slipcase, a little rubbed at extremities. A truly spectacular and early example of a Cosway Binding. Although unsigned, both 'miniatures' are almost certainly the artwork of Miss C.B. Currie, whose name was never mentioned on any Cosway-Bindings prior to 1911. Piscator, the fisherman, in the course of a five-day expedition, teaches his friend how to bait a hook and catch several species of freshwater fish and then how to cook them. The majority of the book is comprised of a dialogue between Piscator, the fisherman, and Venator, the hunter, in which the former attempts to persuade the latter of the practical and spiritual merits of angling. Piscator reminds Venator that Saints Peter, Paul and John "were all Fishers" before quoting verses from other keen anglers: Montaigne, George Herbert and John Donne. The conversation takes place over several days on a fishing trip in the Lea Valley, during which they journey from Tottenham to Ware in Hertfordshire. After the Bible and Shakespeare, The Complete Angler remains one of the most reprinted books in the English language. Coigney, 21d.

Otom? is one of the principal languages spoken in Central Mexico, and this work, more than any other, standardized its orthography; it is also the classic Otom? grammar and dictionary, and is by a man some authorities believe to have been himself an Otom? Indian, or at least of Otom? heritage. It was written during the mid-18th-century renaissance of linguistic study of the languages of Mexico, and Palau considers it "muy rara." (It is much rarer on the market, in our experience, than similarly important works in Nahuatl.) Both the engraved frontispiece and the engraved errata leaf are signed by the engraver Jose Francisco Gomez; the former, often, is not present but it is => here in very good state. Provenance: Red leather bookplate stamped in gold of Estelle Doheny on front pastedown. Small 8vo (14.5 cm, 5.75". Frontis., [2] ff., 160 pp., engr. leaf of errata. Medina, Mexico, 5174; Garc?a Icazbalceta, Lenguas, 55; Vi?aza 356; Maggs, Bibl. Amer., II, 2154; Sabin 52413; Palau 190159; Pilling, Proof-sheets, 2738; Ugarte, Obras escritas en lenguas indigenas de Mexico, 263. Contemporary vellum, now shrunk to smaller than the size of the text block, with newer endpapers, ties lacking, light to moderate staining and wear to interior; housed in a custom slipcase of quarter vellum and cranberry-colored cloth with a cloth chemise. => A good copy of an important and scarce book, complete and with a good provenance.

  • Publisher: En la Imprenta de la Bibliotheca Mexicana
Mexico: En la Imprenta de la Bibliotheca Mexicana, 1767. Good plus.. [24],160pp., plus engraved errata leaf. Short octavo. Contemporary marbled wrappers. Lacking frontispiece portrait, as usual. Light wear at edges of wraps. Errata leaf trimmed at fore-edge, slightly affecting text. Occasional light foxing. A foundational 18th-century dictionary and orthography for the native Mexican Otomi language. Neve y Molina, who may have been Otomi himself, was the first to set out standard orthographical rules for spellings of words in the Mexican tongue. The work is split into three parts. The first contains Molina's orthography; the second provides Otomi equivalents for over two thousand Spanish words and a list of numbers from one to one thousand; and the third section consists of a grammar of the language in Spanish with examples of Otomi phrases. "The author was the first to establish a proper system of characters, which has been since retained" --Sabin. "Muy rara" -- Palau. Lacking the frontispiece, as quite often, but otherwise a nice copy in wrappers of this important work on the central Mexican language. García Icazbalceta, Lenguas 55. Medina, Mexico 5174. Palau 190159. Pilling, Proof-sheets 2738. Sabin 52413.

  • Publisher: George Munro, New York
  • Format: Softcover
First American edition (issued simultaneously with the Scribner's hardcover and Lovell editions [Dury 60b]), early but probably not first printing thus. Seaside Library titles up to #940 listed inside, 1887 patent date in tiny letters on cover, Feb. 1, 1886 publication date. 81, (30, ads) pp. Illustrated wraps over stapled contents. A Fair copy, as is typical, but with intact wraps. Prelims (first three leaves) detached and edge-chipped, laid in. Former owner's name written on front cover and in margins of first and final pages of text. Wraps and a few pages edge-chipped, contents toned, brittle, and a little finger-smudged. An early American printing of the classic novella of duality in Munro's Seaside Library series of cheap paperbacks-- as perfect beachside reading upon its publication as it is now.
