Complete restoration by a professional bookbinder. One-half new leather spine (natural leather) with raised bands (4) with gold titles on black. The rest of the restoration is using the original natural leather boards and endpapers. A very early history of events leading up to the U. S. Civil War written by Horace Greeley (1811-1872) , founder of the New York Tribune newspaper and presidential candidate in the election of 1872. Greeley died before the electoral votes were counted - not knowing he had lost in a landslide. Greeley was not a friend of Grant or Lincoln but opposed slavery and supported the cause of the American Civil War. Out of this grew his book -The American Conflict - which is a history of events leading up to the Civil War as well as a history of the war itself from the side of the Union point of view. Volume I (1864) is a First Edition and has 648 pages plus many maps and illustrations. Volume II (1866) has 782 pages, also, with a multitude of illustrations and maps. Both volumes of this important early work of the Civil War are in Very Good condition. Rare in this condition. ; Each Volume 7 in. x 9 3/4 in. Volume I (1864) First Edition Vol II (1866).

Signed 552 pages. Index. Black and white photographic plates. Signed and inscribed by author upon front free endpaper. "One of the most important autobiographies of the post-war period, for there can be few personalities still alive who have been so intimately connected with the march of world events for so many years. His first great triumph was to rescue the German Mark from the inflation of 1921. As the Nazi avalanche swelled, Hitler persuaded him to occupy the Presidential chair at the Reichsbank. but (Schacht) soon saw that the Fuhrer was driving relentlessly towards war. A quarrel resulted and he left the Government, remaining under a cloud until he was arrested towards the close of the regime." - from dust jacket. Moderate wear to book. Binding intact. Above-average wear to dust jacket which is now preserved in archival-grade Brodart.

1952. Holograph manuscript on two leaves of white wove, three-holed, loose-leaf paper measuring 9 1/2 by 6 inches. At the bottom of the second leaf, in Frost's hand, the work is inscribed "Robert to Fred" (i.e. Frederick B. Adams, Jr.). A life-long bibliophile, Adams was the director of the Pierpont Morgan Library from 1938-1969. This poem first appeared as Frost's Christmas greeting for 1952 and was not actually released until July 4, 1953; it was later published in Frost's last collection, In the Clearing. Adams's label on the front cover of his archival folder dates this manuscript to November 1952, and there are sufficient variant readings to suggest that Frost was still revising the poem when he presented these leaves to Adams. Of particular note is line 3, which reads: "That was to make the New World newly great"; in the published version, this was changed to "That should have made the New World newly great", removing at once the undertone of potentiality in Frost's stanza about the original settling of North America and replacing it with something more ironic. There are other stylistic variations throughout, as well as a number of obvious revisions. Together with a copy of the published greeting, which is illustrated with drawings by Howard Cook. One of 175 copies printed at the Spiral Press, and bearing Marguerite and Fred Melcher's imprint. A fine manuscript with exceptional provenance, housed in an archival folder bearing Adams's bookplate, which was designed by Rockwell Kent. (Crane B24).

  • Publisher: The Studio, Ltd
London: The Studio, Ltd, 1928. First Edition. First Edition. Near Fine in a bright, Near Fine dust jacket. From an era when most film books tended to be focused on the wrong actors, the wrong films, and the wrong directors, this title may stand above all others in terms of pure predictive genius, as well as quality of presentation. Looking only at the films of 1927-1928 and beginning with an essay completely devoid of pretension, Herring's book focuses on cinema as an art form rather than an entertainment, with a strict focus on the directors he considers to be the leaders in the field, including Charlie Chaplin, Man Ray, G.W. Pabst, Alfred Hitchcock, Frank Borzage, Fritz Lang, F.W. Murnau, Erich Pommer, Raoul Walsh, Rex Ingram, Fritz Werdhausen, Herik Galison, Constantin Eggert, Edwin Carewe, Herbert Brenon, Victor Seastrom, Ludwig Berger, Karl Koch, Fred Niblo,Gustav Pauli, Franz Koch, and Francis Bruguiere. The introductory essay is followed by 32 full-page duotone plates featuring stunning still images from the films of the directors noted. Laid in are two advertisements for other books by the publisher, and a vintage label from a French bookseller is present at the bottom right corner of the front pastedown. A cornerstone volume for any library on world cinema.

His book, "Travels in East Indian Archepelago" was published in 1869. The preface begin by saying; "The object of my voyage to Amboina was simply to re-collect the shells figured in Rumphiuss's " Rari-teit Kamer," and the idea of writing a volume of travels was not seriously entertained until I arrived at Batavia, and, instead of being forbidden by the Dutch Government to proceed to the Spice Islands, as some of my warmest friends feared, I was honored by His Excellency, the Governor-General of " the Netherlands India." An enlightening and eye-opening volume, "Travels in the East Indian Archipeligo" was Bickmores best known work. Please feel free to view our photographs of this lovely volume. Ships daily.

The story of Peter Pan in Kensington Garden was originally a portion of a longer adult novel written in 1902 by Barrie, entitled "The Little White Bird". The theme of unending childhood apparently resonated strongly with Barrie, as he further expanded on the theme in 1904 with the play "Peter Pan or the Boy who Wouldn't Grow Up". Barrie's publisher Hodder & Stoughton decided to capitalize on the popularity of the play and released this separate version which was geared towards children. Including exquisite illustrations by Arthur Rackham was marketing genius.

New York: P.F. Collier, 1900 (1903) (see explanation below). First Edition in this form. A very large - Elephant folio - collection of black and white, and some full color, art by the estimable illustrator A.B. Wenzell; all of it being oversized as well. Some occupy two elephant folio pages, including a two-page color frontis. Illustrated beige boards and quarter cloth, unpaginated. Very Good. Some small-scale wear at edges and corners and a bit of soiling; a little weakness at front hinge. Handsome and really quite tight for the condition this book is usually found in. Large reproductions of drawings by Wenzell, depicting courtship, recreation, and other aspects of life at the turn of the century, in America and England. Wenzell was born in 1864 in Detroit, and became a popular illustrator associated with the depiction of the sort of fashionable society drawn in this volume a few years prior to its publication. It is his best known collection, and, in case you were wondering from the variety of dates shown elsewhere for the book, the latest copyright date in this true first edition thus example is 1900; the title page shows "MCMIII" (1903), and that is the collation of the true first publication in this form. Much of the work did appear elsewhere, earlier, in various forms. From an internet review: "His subjects often were trim, well-bred, well-dressed girls in drawing rooms, and the figures were described by one critic as 'things without existence anywhere.' " High praise, for a romantic illustrator. He would have been as beloved today. l-lng1

First Edition. Near Fine in a bright, Near Fine dust jacket. From an era when most film books tended to be focused on the wrong actors, the wrong films, and the wrong directors, this title may stand above all others in terms of pure predictive genius, as well as quality of presentation. Looking only at the films of 1927-1928 and beginning with an essay completely devoid of pretension, Herring's book focuses on cinema as an art form rather than an entertainment, with a strict focus on the directors he considers to be the leaders in the field, including Charlie Chaplin, Man Ray, G.W. Pabst, Alfred Hitchcock, Frank Borzage, Fritz Lang, F.W. Murnau, Erich Pommer, Raoul Walsh, Rex Ingram, Fritz Werdhausen, Herik Galison, Constantin Eggert, Edwin Carewe, Herbert Brenon, Victor Seastrom, Ludwig Berger, Karl Koch, Fred Niblo,Gustav Pauli, Franz Koch, and Francis Bruguiere. The introductory essay is followed by 32 full-page duotone plates featuring stunning still images from the films of the directors noted. Laid in are two advertisements for other books by the publisher, and a vintage label from a French bookseller is present at the bottom right corner of the front pastedown. A cornerstone volume for any library on world cinema.

A pair of rare game maps of the world Two engraved maps (each measuring 500 by 940 mm), both with fine original full-wash colour, each dissected and mounted on to a single piece of linen with the rules on each side, folding into original brown cloth slipcase, with publisher's label. Two companion geographical games of the eastern and western hemispheres.The player begins his journey of the eastern hemisphere in Ireland, travelling through Europe, then on through Asia to China, the East Indies, and Australia. The player then crosses the Indian Ocean and visits the east coast of Africa, the Indian Subcontinent, and the Middle East, where the traveller visits Mecca, whose temple is said to "resemble the Royal Exchange in shape, but is nearly ten times as large". After visiting the over sized royal exchange, the player heads for Africa, ending his travels and winning the game, in Sierra Leone. Although the last line suggests not to be over enthusiastic in celebration: "Pray bear your victory modestly and moderately for now".The game of the western hemisphere begins in Philadelphia, the city of brotherly love. The player then travels up to the Arctic Circle, into the Atlantic Ocean to visit the Cape Verde Islands, and then back to complete a tour of Central and North America. After north America the game heads into the Pacific. The travels end with a tour of South America, the game being won by the first person to reach Buenos Aires, which is said to be "a truly delightful country", where, "people of one hundred years old or upwards are not uncommon".Along the way the player is told many fascinating and unusual details about the places he or she visits. By far the the longest description is left for the The Sandwich Islands (Hawaiian Islands) where "the amiable, the enterprising, the ingenious and excellent Captain Cook was murdered!" . After a brief introduction regarding the islands and its inhabitants, in which the women are described as "commonly ill-made, with coarse features, a gloomy air, and are besides rude, sluggish and awkward in their manners", the text goes on to deal with the death of Captain Cook at great length. However, the text ends on an upbeat note: "notwithstanding the fatal affair above recorded, the natives are acknowledged to be the most mild and affectionate disposition, and in hospitality to strangers are not exceeded even by the inhabitants of the Friendly Islands".

A Moveable Toybook from Lothar Meggendorfer. London: H. Grevel & Co., [1890]. Folio (11 7/8 x 8 3/4 inches; 302 x 222 mm.). Sixteen unnumbered pages. Six with color lithographed moveable plates and eight with black & white drawings. The movable plates are bright and clean and all in perfect working order. Three of them have very small and neatly repaired tears just on the lower margins by the pull-tabs. Otherwise a near fine example of this very rare Meggendorfer movable. With the engraved bookplate of Joan Feisenberger on the front paste-down.Publisher's quarter red cloth over glazed boards, front cover with color pictorial design and title. Inner hinges expertly and almost invisibly repaired, some light rubbing to corners of boards, otherwise near fine.A remarkable survival of a very scarce Meggendorfer title.There are eight movables with a story text each of which includes sepia drawings.The six movables are:1. A bulldog, seated in an armchair, having his portrait painted by Mrs. Puss2. A 'clever' monkey sitting in a big armchair and trying to play with a crying baby in her lap3. A cat with palette in arm painting a portrait of a poodle4. A wily fox running away with two geese under his arms5. A mother hen gently rocks two of her baby chicks in a cradle while the four other chicks peck around. 6. Mr. and Mrs. Hare hiding in a cabbage patch from a houndOCLC locates just one copy of the London imprint in libraries and institutions worldwide: Library of Congress (DC). and three copies of the American imprint by Thompson & Thomas, Chicago: Smithsonian Institution, (DC); Boston University (MA); Pennsylvania University (PA)."There is little doubt that the most elaborate and ingenious movables ever produced were those of the German Lothar Meggendorfer (1847-1925) made during the 1880s and 1890s…the mechanisms and operations of Meggendorfer's books-not to mention the originality of his figures-are far superior to any others published before or since.…'They were marvels of ingenuity…Usually several movements took place at the same time on the same page' (Eric Quayle)…The devices that operated the various figures in Meggendorfer's books consisted of a series of inter-connecting cardboard levers sandwiched between the coloured illustration on the front of the oblong leaf and the dummy pasted behind it. The animated limbs and heads were cut-out models on the front of the picture, and moving the tab set the whole scene in motion…Needless to say, such was the delicacy of Meggendorfer's machinery that if a child pulled too hard the whole thing could be ruined beyond repair" (Haining, Movable Books, pp. 65-73).Joan Feisenberger (née) Greendall (d. 1992) was the wife of the great bibliophile and rare book expert of Sotheby's fame, Hellmut Albert Feisenberger (1909-1999) - "Feisy" to all who knew him. He was responsible for the preparation of the the exhibition "Printing and the Mind of Man" at Earls Court in 1963. As a member of the historical sub-committee whose task was to select some 500 books that had most influenced human thought and action over 500 years, he undertook all the scientific books, ranging from the great medieval encyclopaedia of St. Isidore of Seville to Fermi and Pontecorvo's patent for controlling nuclear fission. In all, he helped to choose and then catalogued over 120 books, more than any other contributor.
