  • Publisher: Grosset & Dunlap, New York
  • Format: Hardcover
Grosset & Dunlap. New York. 467 pages. Undated early Grosset printing as defined by their DJ when they were still using only a single ink color. $0.50 price noted on DJ. Early Grosset DJs are scarce as a result of the cheap quality of the paper used. As a result, they often chipped and broke apart easily and as a result were usually discarded. This copy has the original DJ and is attractive despite a 1 inch chip at foot and crown of DJ backstrip. A couple of small chips at DJ corners. Binding and hinges are strong. Light rubbing to cloth at tips. A nice copy of the classic in the uncommon DJ.

A first edition/first printing in unread Fine condition in alike, price-clipped dustjacket. A nice copy of a dramatic piece of history; In his book, Aldrin, the second man on the moon, interweaves the story of U. S. and Soviet efforts to reach the moon with his first-hand experience flying both the Gemini and Apollo missions during the height of the space race. His recounting of his two space flights is compelling, especially the account of the nearly aborted Apollo 11 lunar landing. In contrast to Aldrin's astronaut's point of view, Murray and Cox's book tells the Apollo story through the eyes of the NASA managers who guided the men and machines from the early days of the Space Task Group to the Apollo lunar missions. The result is the best account to date of how the enormous program was successfully accomplished. Full of insiders' anecdotes, this book truly humanizes the lunar landing story that too often has been told only in technological and bureaucratic terms. Relying heavily on interviews with the people behind the scenes, the authors vividly capture the spirit of Apollo, its triumphs and tragedies, and its ultimate success

"The beauty of this book is that it allows you . . . to experience firsthand what made James Beard special and unique.

Philadelphia, Pa: Carey, Lea & Carey, 1829. Hardcover. Good +. 2 volumes ([3], viii-xii, [2], 14-252 p.; 276 p.); 18 cm. Contemporary full tree calf with five spine compartments. Gilt-tooled red and black morocco spine labels; gilt-tooled decoration in other compartments. Originally bound as part of a set of Cooper novels; the spine label for vol. 2 indicates it was also no. 12 of a larger series of volumes. Archival repair of hinges and reproduction of vol. 1 spine labels. Front fixed endpapers inscribed: McLanahan. Copyright notice is dated 1827, but the title pages are dated 1829. The paste-down revision of the copyright notice described by BAL is not present in either of these volumes. BAL, 3836; Shoemaker, 28599; Wright, I, 688. The Prairie, Cooper's eighth novel, was the third of a trilogy in which he had considered the United States' present (in The Pioneers, 1823), its past (in The Last of the Mohicans, 1826), and its future. Basing his description of the prairie on secondhand accounts, as he never travelled that far west himself, he posed the question whether the "desolate" prairie illustrated what the country might someday become, if the environmental destruction and wastefulness of her settlers went unchecked. Still a timely question! In Very Good- Condition: edges of boards slightly rubbed; archival repair of hinges and reproduction of vol. 1 spine labels; front free endpaper lacking from vol. 1; light foxing; pages are otherwise clean and tight.

University of Chicago, IL, 1966. 1st edition. hardcover. Fine/Fine. "Lvi-Strauss's books are tough: very scholarly, very dense, very rapid in argument. But once you have mastered him, human history can never be the same, nor indeed can one's view of contemporary society. And his... book, 'The Savage Mind,' is his most comprehensive and certainly his most profound. Everyone interested in the history of ideas must read it; everyone interested in human institutions should read it."Ã?J. H. Plumb, Saturday Review [Pub. Info] This work had early, significant impact on anthropology. One of France's leading scholars. There is a protective mylar cover. 1ST US EDITION.

  • Publisher: London: Chapman & Hall, 1844
A Fine Association Copy of Charles Dickens's Most Famous Christmas Book The Exceptionally Rare "Trial Issue" with the Title-Page Printed in Red and Green Inscribed "Christmas 1843" by the Brother of Dickens's Illustrator for "A Christmas Carol" DICKENS, Charles. A Christmas Carol. In Prose. Being a Ghost Story of Christmas. With Illustrations by John Leech. London: Chapman & Hall, 1844. First edition, first issue, the very rare so-called "trial issue," with title-page printed in red and green and half-title printed in green; "Stave I;" text entirely uncorrected; yellow coated end-papers. Small octavo (6 7/16 x 4 1/16 inches; 164 x 103 mm.). [8], 166, [2, ads] pp. Four hand-colored steel-engraved plates by and after Leech and four wood-engraved text illustrations by W.J. Linton after Leech. Contemporary ink gift inscription on verso of front end-paper "To Maria Linton/a Christmas present/from H.D.L./1843". (H.D. Linton was the co-founder of the illustrated periodicalPen and Pencil). He was the younger brother of wood-engraver William James Linton who contributed four wood-engraved illustrations to A Christmas Carol. Original cinnamon vertically-ribbed cloth. Covers decoratively stamped in blind, front cover and spine decoratively stamped and lettered in gilt, all edges gilt. Binding matches Todd's first impression, first issue, with closest interval between blind-stamped border and gilt wreath equal to 14 mm. and with the "D" in "Dickens" in perfect condition. Inner hinges expertly and almost invisibly repaired, minimal wear to head of spine, imperceptible and very small closed splits to extremities of joints. Small rectangular colored bookplate of Mitchell S. Buck lightly tipped onto front paste-down. Bookplate of Bob Stilwell on inside of chemise. Loosely inserted is Mabel Zahn of Sessler's, Philadelphia typed 1940s description showing the textual points of the first issue and written in ink "This Copy has all points." Overall, a wonderful copy of this great rarity, exceptionally clean and bright. Chemised in a quarter red morocco over red cloth slipcase, spine with five raised bands and two green morocco labels lettered in gilt. The current Dickens bibliographer Walter Smith has examined an identical example at the W.A. Clark Library and accepted it as an authentic example of this rare issue. The red and green title-pages and the green half-titles are agreed to have been printed earlier (thus the "trial issue" moniker). Charles Dicken's Christmas classic, written in a mere six weeks at a low point in Dickens's career, and published at his own expense, A Christmas Carol revived Dickens's fortunes, establishing a robust market for Christmas gift books that survives to this day. The characters of Scrooge and Marley, Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim, are immediately recognizable even to those who've never read a word of Dickens: "'God bless us every one!' said Tiny Tim, the last of all. He sat very close to his father's side, upon his little stool. Bob held his withered little hand in his, as if he loved the child, and wished to keep him by his side, and dreaded that he might be taken from him." One of Dickens' favorite artists, John Leech would produce the illustrations for all his Christmas books. H. D. Linton, was the younger brother of the wood engraver, landscape painter, political reformer, and Charles Dickens illustrator, William James Linton (1812-1897). In 1855 H.D. Linton together with his friend M.Edmond Morin, devised a new illustrated paper to be calledPen and Pencil. Morin furnished the money and contributed most of the drawings; H. D. Linton did the engraving (he had studied engraving with his brother and Orrin Smith); William James Linton edited the journal in conjunction with Mr. Macrae Moir.After about eight numbersPen and Pencilsuccumbed to scarcity of capital. Maria Linton, nee Hoover (1815-1858) H.D. was most likely H.D. Linton's sister, first cousin, or niece. Smith, Dickens, II, 4. Calhoun & Heaney, especially pp. 35, 48-49.

4 volumes, large octavo. Original orange Niger morocco by Leighton-Straker for the publishers, gilt lettered spines with single gilt rule at head and tail, raised bands bracketed by rules in blind, the Duke of Marlborough's arms in gilt to front covers, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, marbled endpapers. Light refurbishment to vol. III with colour enhanced and boards straightened, some marking remaining, some pages unopened, else a near-fine set. Portrait frontispieces, illustrated throughout with numerous plates, plans and maps. First edition, first impression, signed limited issue, number 135 of 155 copies signed by Churchill on the limitation statement (half-title verso in volume I). Peter Clarke has recently described Marlborough as "a monument to its author's historical commitment, insight - and fortitude" (Mr. Churchill's Profession, p. 174); T. E. Lawrence thought it "history, solemn and decorative"; while Stanley Baldwin exclaimed that it "would mean years of work even for a man whose sole occupation was writing history. Well, there is the miracle and let it remain. But I don't understand it" (both quoted in Cohen). It is probably Fred Woods's summary which best gathers these threads, and captures the spirit of the work: "Marlborough is huge heavily documented, comprehensive. No future historian can hope to avoid indebtedness, and no unprofessional reader can fail to be moved by the grandeur of the vision, the language and the myth. Sonority piles on sonority, vista succeeds vista, magnificence follows magnificence" (Artillery of Words, pp. 120-21). Cohen A97.1.a.

Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1962. First edition of this groundbreaking work. Octavo, original wrappers as issued. In near fine condition with light rubbing to the extremities. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. First editions are scarce. With the publication of The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, Kuhn challenged long-standing linear notions of scientific progress, arguing that transformative ideas don't arise from the day-to-day, gradual process of experimentation and data accumulation but that the revolutions in science, those breakthrough moments that disrupt accepted thinking and offer unanticipated ideas, occur outside of "normal science," as he called it. Though Kuhn was writing when physics ruled the sciences, his ideas on how scientific revolutions bring order to the anomalies that amass over time in research experiments are still instructive in our biotech age. "One of the most influential books of the 20th century. . . . Singlehandedly changed the way we think about mankind's most organized attempt to understand the world" (The Guardian). Named by Modern Library as one of the 100 best non-fiction books of the twentieth century.

  • Publisher: The Macmillan Company
New York: The Macmillan Company, 1899. First edition of the author’s landmark work. Octavo, original green cloth, gilt topstain. In near fine condition with only light shelfwear to the extremities. Housed in a custom clamshell box. A very sharp copy. Almost a century after its original publication, Thorstein Veblen's work is as fresh and relevant as ever. Veblen's Theory of the Leisure Class is in the tradition of Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations and Thomas Hobbes' Leviathan, yet it provides a surprisingly contemporary look at American economics and society. Establishing such terms as 'conspicuous consumption' and 'pecuniary emulation,' Veblen's most famous work has become an archetype not only of economic theory, but of historical and sociological thought as well. An iconoclastic masterpiece of American social thought. Veblen assails the sacrosanct concepts borrowed from evolutionary biology and used to justify social inequality. The fruit of much lonely study and contemplation, this first book of Veblen's catapulted him to prominence at the age of 42. Thoroughly independent and ornery in his living and thinking, Veblen began here his long and provocative criticism of the business enterprise system. his ideas were seminal and his influence is continuous" (100 Influential American Books).

Penguin, NY, 2006. 1st edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. 1085 pages. 1ST EDITION."Hailed as "a major work of art" by The Wall Street Journal, his first novel in almost ten years spans the era between the Chicago World's Fair of 1893 and the years just after World War I and moves among locations across the globe (and to a few places not strictly speaking on the map at all). With a phantasmagoria of characters and a kaleidoscopic plot, Against the Day confronts a world of impending disaster, unrestrained corporate greed, false religiosity, moronic fecklessness, and evil intent in high places and still manages to be hilarious, moving, profound, and so much more."

  • ISBN: 9780688098919
1st Printing. 640 pages. Published in 1991. The author's third novel. One of Richard Powers' finest achievements. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only that sold out shortly after publication. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Richard Powers' "The Gold Bug Variations". The title being a sly allusion to Johann Sebastian Bach's "The Goldberg Variations", one of the greatest achievements of Western Classical music tradition. This speculative yet rigorous meditation on what it means to be human rings - sounds - true. The title, and its contrapuntal inspiration, are beautifully realized by the novel: "A double love story of two young couples separated by a distance of twenty-five years. Stuart Ressler, a brilliant young molecular biologist, sets out in 1957 to crack the genetic code. His efforts are sidetracked by other, more intractable codes - social, moral, musical, spiritual - and he falls in love with a member of his research team. Years later, another young man and woman team up to investigate a different mystery: Why did Ressler suddenly disappear from the world of science? Strand by strand, these two love stories twist about each other in a double helix of desire" (Publisher's blurb). Richard Powers is a unique voice in American literature: A committed novelist of ideas, he has described the novel as a "supreme connection machine, the most complex artifact of networking that we have ever developed". An absolute "must-have" title for Richard Powers collectors. This is a Review Copy. The Review Material is laid-in. This title is a great book.
