North Bay, Canada:: Transformer Press,, 2005.. Edition of 35. 7" circular book tunnel book. Constructed of Artist Bristol Board and Kizuki Kozo. Hand-colored with Windsor-Newton watercolors. Tied with satin ribbon. Text handwritten with Staedtler Gel Roller and Faber-Castell Pitt artist pen. Add on of goose down. Snowflakes hand-punched from Kozo paper. Lise Melhorn-Boe: "The reference to the Brothers Grimm fairy tale Frau Holle (sometimes called Mother Hulda in English) led us to create a tunnel book that opens like a well. In the fairy tale, when Frau Holle, who lives at the bottom of a well, shakes her feather bed, it snows on earth, hence the addition of the feathers and snowflakes. Does the blue at the bottom of the well represent the water or the sky?

WELLS (H. G.): DE STRIJD DER WERELDEN [Struggle of the Worlds] translated by B Canter. Amsterdam: Cohen [1899]. Illustrated with 10 page designs by J H Speenhoff. Square 8vo, 287pp; publisher?s pictorial cloth. FIRST NEWLY-ILLUSTRATED EDITION. The story was originally serialized in nine issues of Pearson?s Magazine (1897/98) with pictures by Warwick Goble; these got reprinted in the first American book version (1898), but the original first edition (London 1898) is unillustrated as is also the 1899 second edition. This Dutch translation is thus the 1st illustrated book version. The artist Jacobus Hendrik Speenhoff (1869-1945) is known as a poet, singer and artist, a somewhat radical cabaret performer whose degenerate lyrics made him a pioneer legend. He created very few illustrated books or pictorial bindings.

(WILLIAMS, CHRISTOPHER). Williams, Christopher. CHRISTOPHER WILLIAMS: ANGOLA TO VIETNAM - SIGNED PRESENTATION COPY FROM THE ARTIST. Signed and Dated by the Artist. Gent, BELGIUM: Imschoot, Uitgevers, 1989. First Edition 1/1000. 8vo. Printed Self-Wrappers. Artist's Book. Near Fine. 84pp, 27 duotone illustrations. Text in English. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. "Angola to Vietnam" is Christopher William's 1989 artist's book based on his photographic piece of the same title featuring twenty-seven images of glass flowers from Harvard University's Peabody Museum of Natural History. "Drawing from the Peabody's cache of sculptural specimens, Christopher Williams selected only those plants native to countries in which state-sponsored murders occurred in 1984. The information affixed to each photograph mimics the museum's labels, but here Williams places the country of origin above the flower's Latin name, subtly foregrounding the political over the natural. By referencing government-sanctioned atrocities, Williams calls attention to the flowers’ colonial origins, as the science of botany is rooted in the tangled and often exploitative history of international exploration and trade". A most handsome example of this uncommon item limited to one thousand unnumbered copies additionally bearing the BOLDLY SIGNED AND DATED PRESENTATION "FOR ... - 11 15 89 - CHRISTOPHER" in black marker in the year of publication to a significant art critic and historian showing some mild creasing to the top foredge corner of the rear cover along with a bit of light sunning along the spine that is typical with this title.

I haven't seen our mutual friend, Sam [Snead], in a year or so but of course I keep track of him through the newspapers and he's still winning a lot of money. Some one told me a story about him the other day which is amusing: When the Professional Golfers of the U.S. played the British Ryder Cup Team.it conflicted with a gigantic football game. The football promoters prevailed on the Golf promoters to cancel their tournament for one day.and arranged bus transportation to the game and seats for all the golf players, plus a nice dinner. Everyone showed up but Sam. Where do you think he was? That's right, he was playing an exhibition! Never lets a day go by without taking advantage of an opportunity to pick up an honest buck."

This is the 1941 printing of Webster's New International Dictionary, Second Edition, First issued in 1934 and last printed in 1960 before giving way (in 1961) to the Third Edition. Just a bit of wear to corners, and some rubbing to extremities. Previous owner's bookplate remnant to front free endpaper, and (sigh) a single previous owner's stamp, fairly faded, to bottom edge. Nonetheless, the premier and still ultimate researcher's dictionary in lovely condition -- a beautiful behemoth!Size 12 3/8 9 x6 inches. Weight 17 lbs. Tan Library Buckram, red and green marbled edges, tab indexed of bright gilt on black. Contains 600,000 Entries; 12,000 Terms Illustrated; 13,000 Geographical Entries.Preliminary Pages: Book begins with full-color tissue-guarded charts of the Great Seals of the United States and Territories, State Flags of the United States, Arms of Various Nations, Arms and Flags of The British Empire, Flags of Various Nations (including the Nazi Flag); and House Flags of Steamship Lines. Then, an introduction and actual photographs of every single special editor or editorial staff member who contributed to this massive and gorgeous pinnacle of scholarship; a nearly-sixty-page guide to pronounciation; a section on Orthography; and a Brief History of The English Language. Dictionary itself runs from Page 1 through Page 2987, and includes numerous pages of photographs, full-color plates (Representative Orchids, Gems, Poisonous Plants, State Flowers, to name most).Following the conclusion of the last entry, Zyzzogeton, there follows: Charts of Abbreviations; Arbitrary Signs and Symbols; Pronouncing Gazeteer and Pronouncing Biographical Dictionary (containing more than 13,500 names of noteworthy persons, their nationality, their station, their profession or occupation, and the dates of their birth and death). Its makers write: "Webster's New International Dictionary, Second Edition is the culmination of a century's experience in dictionary making. For more than 100 years the work of the editorial staff has been continuous. 207 special editors labored ten years to make this a comprehensive, authoritative and up-to-date reference work to serve today's needs" In (it) "the consultant will find answers to all questions, not only about meanings, but also about spelling, hyphenation, preferred forms, the part of speech to which a word belongs, pronunciation, etymology, synonyms, and multitudes of other problems." Why this Second Edition is considered preferable to the newer Third EditionThe Second, (which is THIS book we're offering) we've been told, is actually preferred by scholars over the Third Edition, due to its strict adherence to correct English, its purportedly greater etymological/philological detail reflecting deeper entry-by-entry scholarship,its superior aesthetic and design sense " Gary Wills in the New Review opined that the new dictionary 'has all the modern virtues. It is big, expensive, and ugly. It should be a great success')" Edited by Philip Babcock Gove, the Third encompassed radical changes which some found unacceptable: ".To make room for 100,000 new words, Gove now made sweeping deletions, dropping 250,000 entries. He eliminated the 'nonlexical matter' that more properly belongs to an encyclopaedia, including all names of people and places (which had filled two appendices). There were no more mythological, biblical, and fictional names, nor the names of buildings, historical events, or art works. Thirty picture plates were dropped. The rationale was that, while useful, these are not strictly about language. Also removed were words which had been virtually out of use for over two hundred years (except those found in major literature such as Shakespeare), rare variants, reformed spellings, self-explanatory combination words, and other items considered of little value to the general reader. The number of small text illustrations was reduced, page size increased, and print size reduced by one-twelfth, from six po

Hardcover. Octavo. 304 pages. Casebound in black decorated rust-colored cloth. 33 illustrations. Colored endpapers. Lexicon, The greatly-expanded "Edition Codex Vasculum." Limited to 720 "standard" numbered clothbound copies, thus (there were also two deluxe issues of 72 and 11 copies respectively). This is one of a special post-publication sub-issue of the cloth edition, of unspecified but certainly tiny limitation, which has a seal with "Xoanon Vox Baetyla" within concentirc circles around a sigil, stamped in ink where the limitation number would normally appear. The work examines "Wortcunning and Sabbatic-alchemical gnosis as manifested through the medium of potion-making. Its text treats of the eight principal Sabbatic-alchemic philtre types, their pharmacoepia and formulation. Evocations to aspects of the Sabbatic Guardians Lilith and Cain are also given to empower the revelation and reification of the Philtre Arcana." The author was a friend of the late Andrew Chumbley, and is presently both the Magister of the Cultus Sabbati, as well as the Verdelet of the Tradition. It is from the Cultus Sabbati, in common with Chumbley's "Azoetia," that this book draws its inspiration. One small faint mark to front edge of upper board, otherwise in Fine condition (no dustjacket issued). An unusual edition! Edition Codex Vasculum, Second Edition (special copy).

Richmond, Virginia. [circa 1895]. Two very rare portrait photographs taken by James Conway Farley, now recognized as America's first prominent African-American photographer, taken at his studio in Richmond, Virginia. Both are cabinet cards in fine condition (measuring 3.25" x 5"), with blind stamped borders and the studio name printed in maroon: "Jefferson Art Gallery, 523 Broad Street, Richmond, Va." Each portrait is of the same unidentified young woman wearing a different fashionable dress and hat. She appears to be in her twenties, and possibly of mixed race. Both photographs were likely taken not long after Farley opened his studio, "The Jefferson" in 1895. A historically important, scarce survival. .

An uncommon and profusely illustrated copy of this Dore Holy Bible, containing both the Old and New Testaments. Featuringtwenty plates after the original illustrations by Gustave Dore. With nearly nine-hundred illustrations from authentic sources. Dore's first illustrated story was published at the age of fifteen. Dore's illustrations for the English Bible were a great success, and in 1867 Dore had a major exhibition of his work in London. Dore was mainly celebrated for his paintings in his day, whichremain world renowned, but his woodcuts and engravings are where he really excelled as an artist with an individual vision. Condition: In a full crushed morocco binding with gilt detailing. Externally, sound, though with some light rubbing. Straining to both hinges. Internally, firmly bound and wonderfully bright, with only the odd spot scattered throughout and to the textblock edge. Overall: VERY GOOD.

FIRST EDITIONS IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF MILGRAM'S TWO LANDMARK 'SMALL-WORLD PROBLEM' PAPERS & A COLLECTION OF SEVEN MORE SEMINAL PAPERS ON THE SMALL-WORLD PROBLEM - also known as six degrees of separation. "In 1967, social psychologist Stanley Milgram conducted a seminal experiment to test the hypothesis that scattered members of any large social network (here, the United States) could be connected to each other through short chains of intermediate acquaintances" (Levinson, Village, I, 1255). Milgram put it this way: "The simplest way of formulating the small-world problem is: Starting with any two people in the world, what is the probability that they know each other?" (Milgram, 62). To find out, he "mailed a passport-like packet to a few hundred randomly selected individuals in Nebraska and Kansas, explaining that the packet's final destination was one of two target recipients in the Boston area. Milgram instructed his subjects to send the packet? to someone whom they knew on a first-name basis - someone they thought was more likely to be acquainted with the target person than they were themselves? "His famous result, now enshrined in popular culture and sociology dogma, was that the average length of the resulting acquaintance chains was roughly six links, where the final member of the chain was the target itself. This result led to the phrase 'six degrees of separation'", [though Milgram never used it] and later Guare's play of the same name (Levinson). Two Granovetter papers build on Milgram and are among the most important in the social sciences. His 'Strength of Weak Ties' are pioneering, highly influential papers arguing that "In marketing, information science, or politics, weak ties enable reaching populations and audiences that are not accessible via strong ties" (Wikipedia). Granovetter concludes "that no strong tie is a bridge, and therefore "all bridges are weak ties" (Granovetter, 1363). Weak ties, he argues, "are more likely to link members of different groups in networks than strong ones. Weak ties connect different actors and consequently enable the flow of information" (Trost, Social Media, 17). Kochenand de Sola Pool formally and famously articulate "the mechanics ofsocial networks and explore the mathematical consequences of these (including connectedness)" (Wikipedia). Their work "provided the intellectual impetus for a whole generation of students who designed and executed studies of the 'small-world'." In 1998 Watts and Strogatz seminally document the best known family of small-world networks and posit the network model as a framework to study the small-world problem. Their work "provided compelling evidence that the small-world phenomenon is pervasive in a range of networks arising in nature and technology, and a fundamental ingredient in the evolution of the WWW" (Kleinberg, 1). Brabási and Réka introduce an algorithm used to generate random, scale-free networks. Scale-free networks are often observed in natural as well as human created systems, including cellular networks, the WWW, Internet, and social networks. Kleinberg's 2000 paper rigorously quantifies the small-world network . Kleinberg first recognized that Milgram's small-world implicitly argues not only the presence of short paths between "individuals in social networks, but also that people seem to be good at finding those paths, an apparently simple observation that turns out to have profound implications for the structure of the networks" (Wikipedia). Lastly, the play Six Degrees of Separation is included for a bit of fun. DETAILS: All papers housed in individually-sized compartments in a handsome leather and cloth clamshell case. Kleinberg's paper is a bound extraction; Granovetter's second paper is bound and includes dust cover; Strogatz's paper is inscribed. All others are journal issues in original wraps. Mailing labels appear on most; a few are ex-libris; withal, the collection is in fine condition.

This highly acclaimed biography by presidential historian, Doris Kearns Goodwin, details ABRAHAM LINCOLN'S rise from obscurity to forge an effective wartime cabinet of three nationally respected rivals. Goodwin?s treatment of the period beginning with Lincoln?s election to the presidency and concluding with the Emancipation Proclamation and the end of the civil war is well researched and written. The historic importance of Lincoln is noted by Leon Tolstoy in his memorable quote: "The greatness of Napoleon, Caesar, or Washington is only moonlight by the sun of Lincoln. His example is universal and will last thousands of years." Rich black leather with 20 karat gilt designed covers and spine; as found in all of Easton Press?s well-known offerings: all edges gilt, silk moire end papers, bound-in satin ribbon bookmark, hubbed spine, and specially milled acid neutral pages. It is signed on the title page by Doris Kearns Goodwin as number 648 of a total printing of 2000. The book is accompanied by a Publisher?s Note and a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the author and a witness. This copy has never been read and is in very good condition. There is a slight, barely perceptible smudge on one edge. The book will be carefully wrapped and boxed for shipping.
