Eleven-year-old Brian Ruske is his first customer, and Brian finds just what he wants most in the world: a '56 Sandy Koufax baseball card.

  • Format: Hardcover
First Edition. Deluxe issue. Octavo, original quarter brown morocco over cloth boards, slipcased. One of 144 hand-numbered copies bound in quarter morocco, this being copy No 15 of 144. A fine copy in felt-lined cloth covered slipcase, as issued. The Opuscula Magica treats in four volumes the short exegetical works on magic by the British occult author Andrew D. Chumbley (1967-2004). The series presents his magical essays, homilies, and other obscure works which originally appeared in small-circulation occult journals now out of print. Each volume presents a series of collated works, some revised or updated prior to his death, as well as a number of writings and illustrations previously unpublished. Together with his grimoire-texts of the magical order Cultus Sabbati, these �minor works on magic� are the origination-point and foundation texts of Sabbatic Witchcraft and Crooked Path Sorcery, two of Chumbley�s most important contributions to the Art Magical. With the intent to make these works more widely available to scholars and magical practitioners, the series is printed and bound in a fine book format suited to their study and preservation. The series editor is Daniel A. Schulke. Opuscula Magica Volume Two contains ten essays written between 1992 and 2000, including one previously unpublished. Expanding upon themes developed in Opuscula Volume I, the book also treats Crooked Path Sorcery, a transcendental ethos of traditional witchcraft having parallels in such traditions as Petro Voudon. Also new in this volume is an Author's Preface, as well as Robert Fitzgerald's rare 1996 interview with Chumbley in Esoterra. The 1999 article 'Gnosis For the Flesh Eternal' appears here for the first time, being a much-expanded version of 'Wisdom For the New Flesh' which first appeared in Starfire. Included in this second volume are nine Azoëtia-era illustrations which have never before seen print. The essays reflect a degree of magical insight, clarity of vision, and creativity seldom equaled in occult writing to this day.

New York: The Viking Press, 1947. First edition of this classic story of simplicity, based on a Mexican folk tale. Octavo, original cloth. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the title page, "For Bob Kriendler with best wishes John Steinbeck." The recipient was the owner of the legendary New York City landmark restaurant and speakeasy ''21''. Steinbeck was a frequent visitor to 21 and was friends with Kriendler. It has hosted every President since Franklin Delano Roosevelt except for George W. Bush has dined at 21 (although Bush's wife and daughters have). Light rubbing to the bottom cloth and small bookplate, near fine in a near fine first issue dust jacket with Steinbeck looking to the left on the rear panel. Drawings by Jose Clemente Orozco. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A nice association. A story of classic simplicity, based on a Mexican folk tale, The Pearl explores the secrets of man's nature, the darkest depths of evil, and the luminous possibilities of love. Steinbeck began writing the story as a movie script in 1944, and first published it as a short story called "The Pearl of the World" in Woman's Home Companion in December 1945. He expanded it to novella length and published it under the name The Pearl by Viking Press in 1947. As he was writing the novella version, he was frequently travelling to Mexico where the film version, co-written with Jack Wagner, was being filmed. The film was also released by RKO in 1947 as a co-promotion with the book.

Octavo size, 12 pp. Rachel Carson (1907-1964) was a marine biologist and conservationist best known for her book "Silent Spring", a study of the negative effects of pesticides on the environment and an unsparing criticism of the chemical industry, which she accused of spreading disinformation about its products. The book led to a ban on DDT, a chemical commonly used as an insecticide in agriculture, and spurred an environmental movement that led to the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency in the U.S. (n. b., info from Wikipedia). "Of Man and the Stream of Time" is the text of the commencement speech Carson gave at Scripps College; the day of commencement was also the first day a series of articles written by Carson was published in the "New Yorker" based on "Silent Spring", which was published that same year. In the text, Carson makes an impassioned case for a respectful and symbiotic relationship between man and nature; because "[n]ature is the part of the world that man did not make", and we should appreciate and coexist with the natural world, rather than seek to dominate and exploit it. A paramount message, beautifully delivered, and still relevent today in our time of rapid technological advances. ___DESCRIPTION: Green paper wraps, title in black inside a white rectangle with emblem of the college in green, two staples along the spine, title page with the emblem of the college in black; octavo size (9" by 6"), pagination: [1-4] 5-11 [12]. ___CONDITION: Volume is near fine, with clean wraps, a strong, square text block, the interior is clean and bright, and entirely free of prior owner markings; some edge wear to the spine, else fine. ___POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please inquire for details. ___Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

Chicago: Paul Theobald and Company,, 1956. Quarto. Original grey cloth, title to spine and front cover in grey. With the dust jacket designed by William Fleming. An excellent fresh copy in the price-clipped jacket, with some minor rubbing and nicks to extremities, and short closed tear to foot of front panel. First edition, first printing. Inscribed by the author to an unknown recipient and signed by the architect on the title page, dated September 1960. It is also signed by over 80 other architects on the front free endpaper who were associated with Mies, either working for him, taught by him, or were associated with him in a professional capacity. Though the exact date of the ceremonial signing is unknown, in 1960 Mies was awarded the AIA Gold Medal - the highest award given by the American Association of Architects - and it is likely connected to this occasion.

  • Publisher: New York: Alfred A. Knopf, September 1923
Octavo. Original black cloth, titles and design gilt to front board. Spine tanned and titles dulled as often,ends and corners rubbed, cloth somewhat marked to sides, gilt titles a little rubbed at front board, spine rolled, superficial split starting from top edge of front endpapers but nonetheless sound, pages clean, a good copy overall. 12 illustrations after drawings by the author. First edition, first printing, a very scarce presentation copy inscribed by Gibran in the year of publication "To Claire Ross, with kindest thoughts from Kahlil Gibran, November 1923". Kahlil Gibran (1883-1931) is one of a select group of literary geniuses whose greatest works were written in a language other than that of their birth. Born in the Lebanon, Gibran emigrated to the US and having published several works in Arabic he produced The Prophet, his masterpiece, in English. It was this collection of inspirational essays, first printed in September 1923, that established his world-wide reputation. Never out of print, translated into over 40 languages, and with sales of over 100 million copies, The Prophet is responsible for Gibran's ranking as the third best-selling poet of all time, behind Shakespeare and Lao-Tzu. Signed or inscribed copies of the first printing of The Prophet are very scarce indeed; we can trace only one appearing in auction records, and that merely signed.
