  • Publisher: [various publishers / various dates]
[various publishers / various dates] Norman Swallow (1921-2000) was a pioneering television and documentary film maker. Born in Eccles, Lancashire, he won a scholarship to Keble College, Oxford. During WWII he fought in Palestine with the Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry. After the war he was employed by the BBC (starting in Alexandra palace on the same day as David Attenborough) where he was heavily involved with 'Panorama', before moving to Granada in 1963. In 1967, to mark the 50th anniversary of the Russian Revolution, Swallow co-wrote and directed the UK-Russian co-production 'Ten Days that Shook the World', a documentary feature based on John Reed's 1919 first-hand account which mixed real archive footage with the films of Eisenstein and Pudovkin. Grigori Aleksandrov, Eisenstein's co-director and later a prominent Soviet filmmaker in his own right, co-wrote the feature with Swallow. Full details as follows: S.I.YUTKEVICH (editor).

Nikola Tesla spent much time with his friend Matthews and the genius used to share their projects and contact with the Venusians and he also advised Matthews to write The Wall of Light. The Venusian Space craft had two people who guided it and there didn't appear to be any mechanisms since they did all their maneuvering by thought projection. The craft appeared to be made of metal and looked like two huge saucers put together rim to rim. Circling these rims about twenty feet away from the main body of the ship was an unsupported band of material called the guide ring which appeared to held in place by some magnetic force. This mother-ship carried twenty four small spacecrafts, ground vehicles, crew, gardens, recreation area, study rooms and a meeting hall - - - - "We are amazed and saddened to find how much of your lives is devoted to inventing and using destructive machines with which you murder each other. You spend vast sums of money pretending to bring peace on earth, when you should know that the only way in obtaining peace is free - Through Love. So why waste your money?" The Venusians. (from the book) The orange softcover is in very good condition other than some toning at the top of the front cover and very minimal shelfwear and some slight dirt edgewear. Pages are tight and clean. Orange mimeographed copy in very good condition. A treasure. 117 pages. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall

  • Format: Hardcover
Small octavo (7 3/4 x 5 1/2"). [6], 72pp, [4] leaves, 73-134pp. Modern 3/4 brown buckram over marbled paper covered boards, with gold lettering to spine. This scarce monograph is based on the results of the Napoleonic Senhedrin regarding the civil status of the Jews living in France. It was published in colonial Mexico by Juan López Cancelada, the editor of the "Gazeta de la Nueva España."On May 30, 1806, Napoleon passed the decree that paved the way to the creation of an assembly of Jewish notables who would represent the Jewish community and be a consultative body with the aim of bringing Jews over to his policies. «According to a report which I have received, certain Jews in several northern départements, whose only profession is that of money-lender, have, by the accumulation of the most immoderate interest, put many farmers in these lands in the greatest financial straits. [?] On 15 July, in our fair town of Paris, an assembly of individuals professing the Jewish religion and living in France shall be formed.» «The members of this assembly shall number 111, taken from the stated départements and selected by the Prefects from amongst Rabbis, householders and other Jews distinguished by their probity and enlightenment.» (Correspondance of Napoleon I, n°10291). The Council met five times between July and September, 1806. As a result of these meetings, Napoleon decided to summon a Great Sanhedrin, as a modern version of the council which in ancient times met in Jerusalem. The Grand Sanhedrin met several times from February 10 to March 9, 1807.This volume is complete with its 8 engraved plates (some are dated 1808), of which 6 depict Jews being tortured, one shows the Grand Sanhedrin meeting for the first time, and the last engraving is a map of Alaska and the Bering Straits showing the itinerary taken by the Jews to flee Asia and take refuge in America. Minor shelf wear. Minor and sporadic foxing throughout. Text in Spanish. Binding in overall good, interior in very good condition.

  • Publisher: Simon & Schuster
New York: Simon & Schuster, 1994. First edition of the historian's Pulitzer Prize-winning work. Octavo, original blue boards. Signed by Doris Kearns Goodwin on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. No Ordinary Time is a monumental work, a brilliantly conceived chronicle of one of the most vibrant and revolutionary periods in the history of the United States. With an extraordinary collection of details, Goodwin masterfully weaves together a striking number of story lines--Eleanor and Franklin's marriage and remarkable partnership, Eleanor's life as First Lady, and FDR's White House and its impact on America as well as on a world at war. Goodwin effectively melds these details and stories into an unforgettable and intimate portrait of Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt and of the time during which a new, modern America was born.

  • Format: Hardcover
An attractive copy of the Limited First Edition of Frank Lloyd Wright's drawings and sketches, the only significant monograph of Wright's drawings published in color during his lifetime [Wright died the year of its publication]. Of the 200 drawings in the book, numerous are two pages in width, making for spectacular close-up views, in full color, also. The book was published at the expense of Edgar Kaufmann Jr. as a gift to Mr. Wright [at a cost of $75 per copy]. Only 2000 copies were published at a retail price of $35, and was never reprinted. Numerous drawings are herein published for the first time, and presented in Wright's most famous style. Some of the drawings were executed by Marion Mahony, architect son Lloyd Wright, and Jack Howe, all superb delineators. The front cover has a few small spots along the lower margin, where the cloth is a little faded, likewise for the corners, otherwise clean and neat. The Dust Jacket is 99.99 percent complete, with two chips on the lower margin of the front panel; three chips lower margin of rear panel & a 1" tear; short tears at the fold in the flap; and a 1/4"x 1.5" chip at the base of the spine. The top margin of the jacket is nearly perfect with only a chip at the top corner of the fold. DJ price has been clipped. The rear panel shows yellowing from light exposure. The binding is tight, with the hinges secure; text is clean and crisp throughout. Considered a cornerstone of Wright's literature. Ref: Sweeney #1265.

  • Publisher: London: Reeve, Benham, and Reeve, 1849
Quarto (300 x 233 mm). Contemporary reddish-brown pebble-grain morocco sometime neatly rebacked with the original richly gilt spine laid down, two-line gilt border on sides, gilt roll tool turn-ins, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Light abrasions to front cover. An excellent copy. 100 fine hand-coloured lithograph plates (with tissue guards) by Walter Hood Fitch. First edition, from the Knowsley library of the Earl of Derby, with his armorial bookplate, and the shelf mark of the Back Library at Knowsley noted on the front free endpaper verso; also annotated at the head of the half-title "from Boone April 15th 1849" (just shaved by the binder) - almost certainly a reference to the London booksellers/publishers T. & W. Boone. Edward Smith Stanley, 13th earl of Derby (1775-1851), politician and naturalist, became "one of the figureheads of the science of zoological classification, particularly the taxonomy of birds. He was president of the Linnean Society of London from 1828 to 1834, and president of the Zoological Society of London for twenty years from 1831 until his death. He not only encouraged the reading of accounts of new species by chairing meetings of the two societies, but contributed many scientific papers himself to the proceedings of the Zoological Society and donated many specimens to its collections. The Knowsley Museum is estimated to have included 20,000 mammals, birds, and lower vertebrates; some invertebrates, such as specimens of molluscs, are known to have been donated to the British Museum before Derby's death" (ODNB). The illustrations here are by Walter Hood Fitch (1817-1892), described by Hooker's son, Sir Joseph Hooker, as an "incomparable botanical artist" (cited in Wilfrid Blunt, The Art of Botanical Illustration, 1950, p. 224). "Fitch remains the most outstanding botanical artist of his day in Europe. He was the first draughtsman to produce really satisfactory drawings from dried herbarium specimens, and for this alone botanists in England would remain forever in his debt. He was always his own lithographer, and became a skilled exponent of the art" (ibid.). The plates are bright and fresh in this copy, which has a very appealing provenance. Nissen 918 (erroneously dating the first edition to 1846); not in Plesch or Pritzel.

  • Publisher: The International Monthly
New York: The International Monthly, 1917. Hardcover. Bound volumes of every issue of 'The Fatherland', the New York periodical published and edited by propagandist George Sylvester Viereck (1884-1962) and Frederick Franklin Schrader (1857-1943). Viereck is noteworthy as the most influential propagandist for the German cause in America during both World Wars.The first 2 bound volumes are personal copies of Viereck's co-editor Frederick F. Schrader, with his name stamped in gilt at the front boards. The controversial weekly, as advertised on the cover of the first issue, advocated "Fair Play for Germany and Austria-Hungary". One issue with Schrader's annotation in pencil (Vol I No. 12).'The Fatherland', launched August 10, 1914, received seed money from well-to-do German American New Yorkers, and quickly sold out the first edition of 10,000 copies. It expanded and set itself the goal of putting forward the German perspective on events in the war, exposing the wrongdoing of the Allied countries, revealing the prejudices of the American press, and urging German Americans to become more politically active. Two months after the publication of the last issue of 'The Fatherland' the US entered WWI and anti-German prejudice, already strong in the US, ignited into outright persecution of German Americans. During this period the Justice Department investigated German Americans and found much proof of Germany's propaganda work in the US. 'The Fatherland's editors, Viereck and Schrader found themselves under investigation and ejected from literary societies and run out of New York, even though no formal charges against them were made. The weekly was published under the name 'The Fatherland' only until 1917; it thereafter changed its name four times to reflect a less obvious pro-German stance, settling on the 'American Monthly' in 1920. In the last volume in this collection the name of the publication changes from 'The Fatherland' to 'The New World' with the following explanation printed on the front page: "The Fatherland has always emphasized that it is an American publication. Its original name was adopted as a graceful tribute to the country of our fathers. Our Fatherland is America. The change of name implies no change of heart. .... In Germany a publication named 'Uncle Sam' would not be popular at present. A publication named 'The Fatherland' may seem objectionable to many, especially to Americans of German descent who desire to emphasize that their allegiance is to America solely." Five large 4to volumes. Vol I: Numbers 1 - 26 complete; Vol II Feb. 1915- August 1915, Numbers 1 - 26 complete; Vol III Aug. 1915 - Feb 1916, Numbers 1 - 26 complete; Vol IV Feb 1916 - Aug 1916, Numbers 1 -26 complete; Vol V: Aug 1916 - Feb 1917, Numbers 1 - 26 complete; Vol VI Numbers 1 and 2. Most issues 16pp with the original wrappers bound in. The early issues front wrappers beautifully designed and laid out and printed in color; the later issues with front wrappers printed in b&w. First 4 volumes bound in full green gilt morocco, top edges gilt; the last volume bound in green cloth, gilt title at spine. The leather bound volume covers are beaten up with boards detached but present for the first 4 volumes; spines missing on 2 vols. Printed on quality china paper, then in 1916 with war rationing in effect, the issues are printed on newsprint, which has browned. a bit of chipping at edges, no loss of text. OCLC: 183362993 records 8 copies at German libraries.

  • Format: Hardcover
This is George Washington?s own signed copy of his First Inaugural Address, from his library at Mount Vernon. This famous address, marking the beginning of a new era in American history, addresses the great themes and issues of the day including the American Revolution, the Constitution, the need for a Bill of Rights, republican government, balance of powers, federalism, the danger of faction, consent of the governed, and more. Confident that ?the foundations of our National Policy will be laid in the pure and immutable principles of private morality,? Washington observes that ?there is no truth more thoroughly established, than that there exists in the economy and course of nature, an indissoluble union between virtue and happiness, between duty and advantage, between the genuine maxims of an honest and magnanimous policy, and the solid rewards of public prosperity and felicity.? Washington recognizes the historical significance of the American experiment: ? the preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the Republican model of Government, are justly considered as deeply, perhaps as finally staked, on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.? The National Archives selected Washington?s First Inaugural Address as one of the 100 landmark documents of American history. See Our Documents: 100 Milestone Documents from the National Archives (Oxford University Press, 2003), 39.  The most recent major sales of books from Washington?s library have been a small group of inconsequential miscellaneous literary books sold for $1.2 million in 2013 and Washington?s copy of Acts Passed at a Congress of the United States (1789), sold to Mount Vernon for $9.8 million in 2012. This volume, George Washington?s own copy of his First Inaugural Address, is among the most important books from Washington?s library remaining in private hands. Details are on our website.
