New York: Limited Editions Club, 1935. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. Grosz, George. No. 909 of 1500, 4to - over 9.75" - 12" tall, 237 p. Signed by Illustrator. O. Henry was known for his inimitable hand for isolating some element of society and describing it with an incredible economy and grace of language. ***ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR: George Grosz was a German artist known especially for his caricatural drawings and paintings of Berlin life in the 1920s. He was a prominent member of the Berlin Dada and New Objectivity group during the Weiman Republic. The full-colour illustrations throughout this book are perfect examples of how he describes his own art: "My Drawings expressed my despair, hate and disillusionment, I drew drunkards; puking men; men with clenched fists cursing at the moon. I drew a man, face filled with fright, washing blood from his hands. I drew lonely little men fleeing madly through empty streets. I drew a cross-section of tenement house: through one window could be seen a man attacking his wife; through another, two people making love; from a third hung a suicide with body covered by swarming flies. I drew soldiers without noses; war cripples with crustacean-like steel arms; two medical soldiers putting a violent infantryman into a strait-jacket made of a horse blanket. I drew a skeleton dressed as a recruit being examined for military duty. I also wrote poetry." (N. B. info from Wikipedia). ***DESCRIPTION: Full black buckram with gilt text on spine; Worthy special paper; set in linotype Janson; illustrated in watercolours and line by George Grosz; 10.5" tall; pagination: (i) - (xiv), (221), blank (222), colophon (223); signed by artist; Limited Edition no. 909 of 1500. Purple cloth slipcase with gilt text on spine. ***CONDITION: Near fine condition with only very minor wear to corners and spine; slipcase in very good condition with wear to corners and slight shelf wear on bottom. ***CITATION: LEC no. 67. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please contact us for details.

A Ludlow Typograph is a hot-metal typesetting system used in letterpress printing. The device casts bars or slugs of type out of type metal primarily consisting of lead. These slugs are used for the actual printing, and then are melted down and recycled on the spot. The principal typographer at Ludlow was R. Hunter Middleton, creator of several notable font designs, including Coronet, Stencil, Delphian Open Title, Eusebius, Flair, Radiant, Record Gothic, Stellar, Tempo, Umbra and many others. Other noted designers for Ludlow included Robert Wiebking, Douglas Crawford McMurtrie who served as director of advertising and typography before Middleton, and Hermann Zapf, whose Optima and Palatino were among the last faces cut for Ludlow.

1772 De Medicina Aulus Cornelius Celsus Medicine Surgery Pharmacy Encyclopedia FAMOUS Early Roman Medical Text / compare@$810 De Medicina is a 1st-century BC medical treatise by Aulus Cornelius Celsus, a Roman encyclopedist and possibly (but not likely) a practicing physician. It is the only surviving section of a much larger encyclopedia; only small parts still survive from sections on agriculture, military science, oratory, jurisprudence and philosophy. De Medicina draws upon knowledge from ancient Greek works, and is considered the best surviving treatise on Alexandrian medicine. Aulus Cornelius Celsus (c. 25 BC ? c. 50 AD) was a Roman encyclopaedist, known for his extant medical work, De Medicina, which is believed to be the only surviving section of a much larger encyclopedia. The De Medicina is a primary source on diet, pharmacy, surgery and related fields, and it is one of the best sources concerning medical knowledge in the Roman world. The lost portions of his encyclopedia likely included volumes on agriculture, law, rhetoric, and military arts. He made contributions to the classification of human skin disorders in dermatology, such as Myrmecia, and his name is often occurring in medical terms about the skin, e.g., kerion celsi and area celsi.

Scarce trade catalogue or sales promotion for an unusual early variant on a camper. Oblong, 19 by 27 cm. 31 pp., plus wraps with front flap doors simulating garage doors, and separate related sales material -- a Price List, envelope for such, signed cover letter, and original outer envelope. Within, two color plates, including the title page, showing the "camper" touring home, and many b/w photographs scattered through the text of the vehicle, its parts and accessories, and of its use. Notwithstanding the subtitle indicating the manufacturer started business in 1868, its actual roots date back further, to 1837, when under the name of Wayne Agricultural Works it produced farm implements. By the end of the nineteenth century it had diversified into horse-drawn carriages and what were called "kid-hacks", the precursor of the modern school bus. For a few years during the teens the company made automobiles, but for much of the twentieth century it was known primarily as a major manufacturer of buses. In 1956 it merged with Divco Corporation of Detroit and became Divco-Wayne, and over the next several decades what had been Wayne passed to several other conglomerate owners until it was finally shuttered in 1992. In this, a product that was essentially an adaptation of the automobile and bus, the company likens it to a personal "Pullman", and as the title implies, it associates the vehicle to health through the invigoration of travel and the outdoor life. Less amorphous, perhaps, is its claims of offering greater independence -- "You can go when you want to where you like, stop when and where you please, stay as long as you want and leave when you're ready." In other words, the appeal of the automobile over other forms of transportation. The vehicle visually would be most akin to a van, with a tent attachment to the back. As with campers and trailers, it came with all sorts of nifty gadgets which were stored in compact and ingenious ways. But it didn't come cheap, starting at $795 in 1924 dollars, when average annual income was barely more than $2,000. Two spots on front cover where the door flaps were once sealed -- these glue spots are probably inherent to the booklet. Light wear besides -- a trivial closed tear on back cover, light soiling here and there, etc. Other items with similar trivial issues.

Colour plates by Cursiter. Spine somewhat rolled, very light rubbing to ends and corners, light spotting to edges and occasionally within, front hinge just split at the tail, but a very good copy.

Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper to one of his company officers, "To George Hall, with every good wish and in memory of so many happy days spent together in 1916-1917 from Sidney Rogerson, Nov 14th 1933". Hall was one of Rogerson's two company officers, and is ever-present in the text - he is introduced on page 4: "George Hall was a very different type. Whereas Mac and I were in our very early twenties, he was over thirty - a real Yorkshireman, stubborn, stolid, and cheerful. After many years of service in the ranks of the regiment he had been commissioned, and made a very conscientious, dependable officer." Liddell Hart notes in his foreword that the book "deals with the 'fag-end' of the Battles of the Somme in 1916..." but "recreates the normal atmosphere of a Battalion in war more truly than anything else I have read.

Book in Latin. Amsterdam, 1644. This book is bound in whole light brown calf with a fully decorate back with the monogram I.A.G. in each panel, and with the sides perfectly plain excepting for the coat of arms of de Thou in the centre of each side. It was probably bound for Jacques Auguste de Thou the third son of the famous bibliophile, commonly called the second de Thou. The monogram I.A.G. on the back is composed of the combined initials of his mother and father and the arms on the side are those of the de Thou family.was the most celebrated patron of binding during the last part of the 16th century. Son of Christophe de Thou, first President of the Parliament of Paris, he inherited from him a valuable library, containing several books bound for Grolier, which the latter had presented to Christophe, in gratitude for having saved his life and honour. Jacques Auguste was President of the Parliament under Henry IV, a position his son held after him. He had a library of 8, 000 volumes bound in variety of styles. It included Fanfare bindings of the late period in which the spirals were profuse and the foliage elaborate and delicate; the dotted work of Le Gascon in his early days; fawn-colored calf, ornamented with plain gold lines; white vellum stamped with arms; and, most numerous of all, books covered in moroccos, red, olive, and citron, perfectly plain except for his fine cost of arms. These arms vary greatly at different periods of his life, in the following succession. Before he was married they were simply argent with a chevron sable between three gadflies of the same, with a cherub's head as his crest above the escutcheon and his name below, the whole enclosed between two branches of laurel. Later, he added his monogram, L.A.D.T., and this and the arms are on his books up to 1587, when he married Marie Barbancon. After this he impaled his wife's arms, gules with three lions crowned argent, with his own, and modified his monogram to I.A.M. Marie died in 1601, and the followingyear De Thou married Gasparde de la Chastre. Henceforth her arms replaced Marie's, and the monogram becomes I.A.G. He left this linrary in perpetuity to his family, and the eldest son, Francois Auguste, librarian to the king, guarded it till he was beheaded in 1642 at Lyons. The third son of the historian was then put in the palce of Francois, and became the head of the family and the owner of the library, which he enriched with the collection of his father-in-law, Hughes Picardet. His books are known by the combined arms of de Thou and Picardet until 1660, when he was made Baron de Meslay. His arms are henceforth surmounted by a count's coronet instead of a baron's, and in 1677, the Abbe de Samer-aux-Bois sold the collection to meet the creditors of the family. Charron de Menars bought it almost intact, except some of the MSS., which went to the royal library. In 1706, the Marquis de Menars resold the library to the Bishop of Strasburg for 40, 000 pounds, who bequeathed it to his nephew, the Prince de Soubise, and it was only finally dispersed in 1788. by far the greater part of de Thou's Library was plainly in rich red morocco with his arms-a style that was subsequently much copiedby collectors in all countries. This is housed in a custom Sangorski & Sutcliffe signed chemised full brown morocco box with raised bands and gilt lettered on spine. The box is in near new condition with just some light rubbing. The exceptional work you would expect from Sangorski & Sutcliffe. Size: 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall

First edition. Thin quarto, original cloth. Boldly signed by Kay Thompson on the front free endpaper. Additionally signed by illustrator, Hilary Knight. Bottom cloth rubbed, near fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of rubbing. The fourth book in Kay Thompson's beloved Eloise series. After a three-week stay in Moscow with her colleague Hilary Knight, Kay Thompson had plenty of fodder for her distinctly Eloisian travelogue: the food ("It is difficult to know what to eat in Moscow/ There is no melon in season/ Nichevo"); the stilted English of their tour guide ("That house is Chekhov/ That house is Stanislavsky if you want to see it/ No you cannot it is reconstruction"); national security ("Our telephone had quite a bit of static/ so we talked about General de Gaulle/ to throw them off track/ Everybody listens to everything in Moscow"

  • Publisher: Simon and Schuster
New York: Simon and Schuster, 1955-2002. First editions of each of the five Eloise titles. Quarto, 5 volumes. Each are signed by the illustrator, Hilary Knight. Each are near fine in very good to near fine dust jackets. A brilliant set of this timeless classic. "I am Eloise. I am six", So begins the start of the famed first book by Kay Thompson's "Eloise". "At rehearsals of her act with the Williams Brothers, Thompson (who was a professional singer) prized punctuality. Then one day she was late. In a high, childish voice that she had never used before, she made her apology. One of her co-workers said, 'Who are you, little girl?' Thompson replied, 'I am Eloise. I am six.' The others joined in the game, each assuming a juvenile identity, and it became a regular rehearsal pastime" (New York Times). A book soon followed, three more were soon released.

Uncorrected galleys. String-tied in unprinted gray wrappers with applied paper title label. Printed rectos only. Slight crease on the front wrap, modest age-toning, else near fine, with the title handwritten on the spine as "Franny and Zooy" [sic]. Laid in are a press release, a publicity statement to booksellers, and a seasonal pamphlet reviewing the book. The press release, on Little, Brown stationery, is interesting as it details an August publication date (the book was eventually published in September) and also announces that the book would contain an introduction by Salinger (the little additional text that he reluctantly provided was used on the jacket flaps and there is no introduction within the book itself). Additionally, these galleys lack the dedication page added to the published book. By the late 1950s Salinger had become so disillusioned with the marketing practices of publishers that he broke all ties with his English publisher after they allowed Nine Stories to be published with a garish cover. With Little, Brown he stipulated that there would be no advance publicity for the book, that it would have simple and understated art design, and that Salinger himself would provide the jacket text. Rare.
