1892. Illustrated by William Hole and W. L. Metcalf. London, Paris & Melbourne: Cassell & Company, 1892. 12 pp ads dated May 1892. Original blue cloth. First Edition of this mystery involving the disappearance of a ship, based on an actual event the Stevensons encountered en route to Samoa. A volume on the "expanded list" of J. K. Lilly's "89 Good Novels of the Sea," THE WRECKER is often cited as the book that bridges the gap between Stevenson's European/American past and his Pacific future (such as it would be). Stevenson's stepson actually wrote each chapter, which RLS would then revise before the next chapter was begun.~This is a very good-plus copy (very slight rubbing at the corners, minor cracking of the rear endpaper). Beinecke 558; Princeton 49.

Title label on spine lettered and tooled in gilt. A fine copy in the original dust jacket (small tear at top of spine) and brown board slipcase.The Metamorphoses ("Books of Transformations") is a Latin narrative poem by the Roman poet Ovid , and is considered to be his magnum opus. Comprising fifteen books and over 250 myths, the poem chronicles the history of the world from its creation to the deification of Julius Caesar within a loose mythico-historical framework. Although meeting the criteria for an epic, the poem defies simple genre classification by its use of varying themes and tones. Ovid took inspiration from the genre of metamorphosis poetry, and some of the Metamorphoses derives from earlier treatment of the same myths; however, he diverged significantly from all of his models. One of the most influential works in Western culture, the Metamorphoses has inspired such authors as Dante, Boccaccio, Chaucer, and Shakespeare. Numerous episodes from the poem have been depicted in acclaimed works of sculpture and painting by artists such as Titian. Although interest in Ovid faded after the Renaissance, towards the end of the twentieth century there was a resurgence of attention to his work; today, the Metamorphoses continues to inspire and be retold through various media. The work has been the subject of numerous translations into English, the first by William Caxton in 1480.Hans Erni (1909-2015) was a Swiss graphic designer, painter, illustrator, engraver and sculptor. Born in Lucerne, he studied art in France and Berlin, and admired artist such as Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. He is known for having illustrated postage stamps, his lithographs for the Swiss Red Cross, his participation on the Olympic Committee as well as his activism. His 1939 works and first major public success was a mural titled Switzerland: "Vacation Land of the People" was commissioned and displayed for the national exhibition in Zurich. The Hans Erni Museum, situated in the grounds of the Swiss Museum of Transport in Lucerne, contains a large collection of artwork, he also designed ceramics and theater costumes and sets. He did the art for Swiss bank notes, in the 1940's but, after the notes were already printed they were never published, because a member of the State Council of Lucerne criticized that Erni was deemed as a communist. However, Erni was never member of any political party. In 2004, he was awarded as an "Honourable citizen of Lucerne" and on January 10th, 2009 he received the Swiss Award for lifetime accomplishment. In his carrier he realized about 300 posters, several murals (for the Red Cross, the IOC, the United Nations, ICAO, and many public and private enterprises). He illustrated about 200 books and created 90 Postage stamps and 25 medals.

Smith was the most famous and respected American photojournalist in the mid-20th century, the high point of photojournalism. He produced a dozen masterful photo essays for Life Magazine from the late 1940's to the mid 1950's. This was his first photo monograph. Very few copies were signed, apparently for friends and admirers. With an insightful extended essay by Lincoln Kirstein. A fresh copy, this book is in near fine condition, no writing, no bookplates.

  • Publisher: Hitachi
[Tokyo]: Hitachi, 1963. First edition. Smith, W. Eugene. 4to., 79 pp., hundreds of b&w photographs printed in photogravure. Blue Japanese paper over boards, titled in gilt and issued without a dust jacket. Housed in a matching blue paper over boards, four-point portfolio, titled in gilt on the upper cover and fastened in the Japanese style with ivory clasps. The book is fine, as new. The portfolio shows slight toning at the spine and a less than one inch long crimp at the base of the rear board at the joint of the spine, slightly revealing a sliver of the base board; otherwise fine. A scarce book, and more so with the seldom seen portfolio case. Smith traveled extensively around the islands of Japan, making several trips over a period of years. He was struck by the pervasive presence of the Hitachi Corporation in the lives of the people - it was one of the leading world industrial giants. This is not an essay about Hitachi, although there are views of the factories; rather, it is an examination of the peoples of Japan and the intersection of the old customs and the new industrial strength of the country.

Brass clasps.l Second Dutch edition of Dodoens's last, most important and most extensively illustrated work, with Clusius's extensive appendix of American and East Indian plants, which adds nearly 100 woodcuts. Besides the usual European herbs and medicinal plants, the book describes and illustrates mushrooms, fruit trees and other trees, as well as tropical peppers, cacti, fruits, nuts, tobacco, papyrus, etc., and even a coral. It made an important contribution to systematic botany by defining the parts of plants in general. The "Cruydt-Boeck", not to be confused with the "Cruydeboeck" first published in 1554, was largely a Dutch translation of the "Stirpium historiae pemptades sex, libri XXX", first published by Plantin at Antwerp in 1583. The "Stirpium" represents Dodoens's best and last great work: a monumental botanical study divided into six large sections, each containing five books, with the plants classified in 26 groups. This system was far superior to all his earlier classifications. Joost van Raveling[h]en or Justus Raphelengius (1573-1628) at Leiden, Christophel Plantin's grandson, first published the present translation in 1608, adding extra information in a smaller type at the end of each chapter. These additions give information on the qualities of the plants taken from the "Cruydeboeck" (if they are not present in the "Stirpium"), as well as new information or descriptions of new plants taken from the work of other authors, including Carolus Clusius and Mathias de Lobel. At the end Van Ravelingen added a whole new part on exotic plants taken from the works of Clusius, Garcia da Orta, Nic. Monardès, Chr. Acosta and others. Willem Swanenburgh engraved the title-page, originally for the 1608 edition. It has a view of a botanical garden (with cacti, palm trees and other exotic plants) in an architectural frame with garlands of fruit and roundel portraits of Dodoens and Clusius, with the letterpress text in two cartouches. It is here coloured by an early hand. The present edition includes the same woodcuts as the first Dutch edition, with some additions for the parts by Clusius. The main text is set in textura type, and each of the thirty books begins with a headpiece of arabesque fleurons, a large decorated initial letter, and an introductory text in fraktur type. Joost Raphelengius's four-page note to the reader and the headings to the woodcuts are set in Robert Granjon's Bastarde civilité (Carter & Vervliet A6). Page 791 erroneously numbered 691. Slightly toned, with some minor spots throughout; the margins of a few pages slightly thumbed, light damp-staining to the lower margin of a few leaves in the rear. Tear in fifth preliminary leaf. Binding cracked at hinges, bottom of spine slightly damaged and some traces of use along the extremities. Overall a very good copy. Krivatsky 3303 (lacking half-title); Nissen, BBI 518; Pritzel 2345; Stafleu & Cowan 1491; Wellcome I, 1812.

Illustrated with two engravings in the text. First American edition. Originally published London 1849. Soyer's famed recipe book adapted by an American housekeeper, "to make a verbal correction here and there, necessary to render the meaning of the author more plain; to erase certain directions for cooking different kinds of game and fish unknown in the new world; and to omit the purely local information, and scraps of history, which only increased the cost and bulk of the book, without, in any way, adding to its value."

First German editions and true firsts of the author's classic Danzig Trilogy. Octavo, 3 volumes, original cloth. Each work is signed by Gunter Grass on the title page. Each are fine in near fine dust jackets. A very sharp set, uncommon signed. The Danzig Trilogy begins with the story of Oskar Matzerath and his determination to remain a child. He refuses to speak, only banging on his drum. The surreal chronology and characters give a nerve-wracking description of life under Nazi rule in World War II, and finally to postwar Germany in the 1950's. In 1979, The Tin Drum was adapted into a film which won the Palme d'Or, and the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine gilt. 1 double-sided plate, illustrations within the text. Very lightly rubbed at the tips, small blue sink spots on the upper edge of the text block. Excellent condition. Third printing of this influential work, originally published in 1944. From the library of molecular biologist Erwin Chargaff (1905-2002), with this ownership signature in ink on the front free endpaper. Chargaff's work elucidated key concepts about DNA and provided part of the groundwork for Watson and Crick's discovery of its structure. Chargaff's rules, as they are now known, state that the quantities of the four nucleotides are always linked - guanine matching that of cytosine and adenine with thiamine, and that the relative amounts of each vary from species to species. These observations strongly hinted that the nucleotides carried the genetic information (rather than the protein components, as had been thought previously), and, most importantly, that DNA could have a double structure - the key to the cell's ability to both read and replicate it. "Chargaff discussed the results at a tetchy meeting with Watson and Crick in May 1952, and later told Horace Judson, the historian of the discovery of DNA, that 'they impressed me by their extreme ignorance'" (Guardian obituary). Chargaff's contributions, along with those of Rosalind Franklin, were ignored by the Nobel Prize committee, leading to his bitterness in later life. The present text is a significant in our understanding of the physical processes involved in cell division. Franz Schrader (1891-1962) was a Columbia University cytologist who, in 1932, began studying spindles, the structures in cells that form during cell division and pull apart the copied chromosomes. Mitosis "placed what was known of these subjects under searching analysis and offered new directions for research on chromosomal movements" (Cooper, Franz Schrader: A Biographical Memoir, National Academy of Sciences, 1993). An excellent association.

Early owner's signature at head of title. Presentation copy signed by "the author" on front blank recto. Housed in a Period ¼ Sheep Clamshell gilt spine. American Imprints 21169 (4 copies).This book looks into the history and beginnings of Magic in good and evil and in entertainment, from all periods and religions, covering Egyptian and Greek mythology to superstitions Witchcraft, Sorcery and much more, with pages 61 â?? 76 of annotations wonderfully explained and referencing back to the full explanations within the book. The Rev. Dr. Frederick Henry Quitman, the son of Stephen Henry and Anna Quitman, was born August 7, 1760, in the Duchy of Cleves in Westphalia [on an island!], in the lower Rhine. His father held an important office in the Prussian Government. The son, manifesting at an early age a great love for books, more than common intelligence, and superior talents and application to study, was placed by his father, into the celebrated school of Halle. After receiving the advantage of a liberal education Henry then transferred to Halle University. Under the guidance of George Christian Knapp (1753-1825), August Herman Niemeyer (1754-1828), Johann Salomo Semler (1725-1791), and other eminent professors in that distinguished seat of [Pietist, then Aufklarung Rationalist ] learning. For more than thirty years Dr. Quitman divided his time among a number of small and scattered Lutheran churches in the Hudson River Valley. These congregations were dispersed groupings of German speaking farmers and craftsmen. At the time there was a profound shortage of German speaking Lutheran pastors willing to serve in the rustic wilds of New York. Dr. Quitman often preached seven or eight times a week in either German, Low Dutch, or English. "In is preaching he was brief, biblical, practical and impressive inculcating with great energy the Christian gospelâ?¦ [and] He never used a manuscript in the pulpit." First in the associated churches of Schoharie and Kobles Kill [until 1798 ]; and afterwards in those of Rhinebeck, Wurtemburg, Germantown, and Livingston.

  • Format: Hardcover
First edition of one of Philip K. Dick's most acclaimed novels. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Philip K. Dick on the title page. A touch of rubbing, near fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing. Jacket design by Peter Rauch. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Rare and desirable signed. Ubik "features the creation of a subjective world by a group of people killed in an accident but restored to a kind of consciousness within a preservative machine, though any final determination of what is real in the book is made superbly problematical" (Clute & Nicholls, 329). "A brilliantly realized science fiction future darkened by Kafkaesque paranoia. As portrayed by Dick, a world in which cryogenic suspension has abolished traditional concepts of death and in which psychics can alter the future by changing the past is one that offers no foundation for objective truth" (Barron, Fantasy and Horror 6-113). It was chosen by Time magazine as one of the 100 greatest novels since 1923.
