2 Aiken Aiken's British Poets with Biographical and critical Prefaces
Philadelphia, PA Thomas Wardle 1831 Reprint Full-Leather Good No Jacket 8vo 
Here is a wonderful and extensive selection of the works of virtually all of the Great British Poets. The book contains over 800 pages and shows considerable wear since it was published in 1831, The first edition was published in 1820 so this is a very early printing. Each section on a particular poet is prefaced by a short biography of the man about to be read. Suffice it to say that this is a great book that has worn over time. Published in 1831 this volume is bound in full calf that is marred or scratched on both boards and the spine. Marbled endpapers are present with a small bookseller sticker in the top corner of the front pastedown. In parts of the book there is heavy foxing, in other parts the text is virtually clean. All edges of the book are marbled but very faded. This book is in good only condition only but it is solidly bound. It is not falling apart by a long stretch. It makes a marvelous volume to peruse at random or to research a particular poet. It's still a great book but it is not as pretty as we would sometimes like!

3 Ainsworth, William Harrison Tower of London, The
London Richard Bentley 1840 First Edition Full-Leather Near Fine No Jacket as Issued 8vo 
This exquisite volume was published by Richard Bentley in 1840, around the time that he was working with Dickens. Bentley also published the first edition of Oliver Twist. This volume is illustrated by George Cruikshank, the genius of 19th century literary illustrations. There are 40 full-page steel etchings as well as 58 woodcut illustrations. It is beautifully bound by Riviere in full red straight-grained morocco with green silk endpapers. The spine is very richly gilt in an ornate six compartment design with raised hubs. There is a little splitting of the silk at the inner joints but they are still quite solid. All edges are gilt and there is virtually no foxing to the fine textblock, even on the plates. The binding is tight and there is a previous owner's bookplate on the front pastedown. The bookplate depicts a fellow sitting in his reading chair before a fireplace. There is gold decoration on the inner dentelles and this is a very handsome copy of this important volume. The book is in a beautiful custom-made slipcase of the finest leather and the inside of the slipcase is fully lined in a marbelled red. A mylar wrapper further protects the book within the case. In size, the book is a tall octavo and it is quite heavy. The novel itself is a work of fictionalized history and takes place in sixteenth century England. This writing format holds a twofold interest for the reader. Firstly, it tells a Romantic story and secondly, it tells a story that is partly true. The Tower of London also brings to the reader a lively description of one of the most famous structures in England. The story itself is concerned with the troubled reign of Queen Mary, one of the least understood by lovers of history and literature. This beautiful offering in it's Fine binding looks stunning on the shelf and will please any discriminating collector of Fine literature. We are pleased to send pictures on request.

4 Akenside, Mark Poetical Works of Mark Akenside M.D. - Two Volumes
Edinburgh Apollo 1781 1st Thus Half-Leather Very Good No Jacket 32mo 
Mark Akenside was a British poet and Physician. He is best known for his poem 'The Pleasures of Imagination', an eclectic philosophical essay in poetic form. It was first published in 1744 in three books and a fourth book was added later. The whole poem was extensively revised and it finally appeared posthumously in 1772. These two small volumes are a later printing (1781) of this work from 1772. These books are classic 32mo in size which is quite small (3 1/4" wide by 5" tall"). They are bound in half calf over marbled boards. The spine labels are red morroco. The bindings are tight and the books are very readable. People liked these small books in those days, particularly for poetry, because you could carry them around in your pocket for travelling by land or sea. This is a two volume set that shows wear and some chipping to the spines, particularly on volume one. There is no foxing in the books and these collected poems are a delight to read. The gilt and labelling on the spines is still fully present on volume two. Volume one has a couple of small gilt lines that are not present. For a set that was published in 1781, these books are in very nice condition and these are very clean copies. The poems are written in blank verse derived from Milton and they were modeled on the Roman Poets Virgil and Horace. In the later poems of the collection Akenside adopted the Ode as his favorite poetic form. The odes are in volume two. A most interesting little set from a poet who was at one time made physician to the Queen. We are pleased to send pictures on request.

9 An Inhabitant of New England Remarks on the Review of Inchiquin's Letters
Boston Samuel T. Armstrong 1815 First Edition Cloth Good No Jacket 8vo 
This treatise of 1815 is attributed to 'An Inhabitant of New England' and is addressed to 'The Right Honorable George Canning, Esquire'. George Canning was an active figure in English politics at the time and this work deals with the differences between England and America in terms of Problems, Morals, and Politics. It is a most interesting historical and sociological work and it is still in the original stiff paper covers. The hinges have been professionally reinforced and the book is solid. There is age toning throughout and there is also a pressed leaf encased in plastic that is probably from the period. Rough cut edges with some creasing and light staining throughout. Really, a remarkable little piece of very early American history.

By the time night falls on Poplar Street, the surviving residents will find themselves in another world.

17 Barker, Clive Sacrament
New York Harper Collins 1996 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine 8vo Signed by Author
Here is a beautiful offering for the Clive Barker collector. It is a signed copy of Sacrament that is in Fine condition. This is the first edition as well as the first printing. Sacrament is a novel unlike any other that Mr. Barker has written. It is neither horror nor fantasy but delves into both as Clive Barker tells a tale of a wildlife photographer who chronicles the fate of endangered species, including his own. It is a mystical work of fiction dealing with the future of our species and indeed, all species. However, this is not a treatise on ecology. It is fast paced and very well written. Clive's fans owe it to themselves to experience this sharply different tale of dreams and realities, of mysticism and adventure. This is a really fine copy of a most significant work. We are pleased to send pictures on request.

22 Barnett, Louise Ungentlemanly Acts
New York Hill and Wang 2000 First Edition Cloth Fine Fine Signed by Author
Signed on the title page. In April 1879, on a remote military base in west Texas, Captain Andrew Geddes, a decorated Army officer of dubious moral reputation, faced a court-martial. The trial unearthed shocking tales of seduction, incest, and abduction. The highest figures in the Army got involved, and General William Tecumseh Sherman made it his personal mission to see that Geddes was punished for his alleged crime. This book is a fascinating and compelling examination of that drama. It is at once a suspenseful narrative of a very important trial and a study of the then prevailing attitudes toward sexuality.

Here is a wonderful book for the collector who seeks novelty and enjoys the very unusual.

The magnitude of the organization and its workings. How to combat this hideous monster. How to save YOUR GIRL. How to save YOUR BOY. What you can do to help wipe out this curse of humanity. A book designed to awaken the sleeping and protect the innocent". The author of the book was the secretary of the Illinois Vigilance Association and the Superintendant of "Midnight Missions". There are thirty two pages of striking pictures "showing the workings of the blackest slavery that has ever stained the human race". The binding of the book shows considerable rubbing and wear but it is still tight and although there is a uniform toning of the text from age, there is no foxing in the book. It is the highly unusual nature of the book that makes it so much fun to read and own. We are pleased to send pictures on request.

This book is Brand New and it still resides in the Original Publisher's Shrinkwrap. It is Limited to 900 copies and because the book is unopened I do not know what number this particular book might be. The book is signed by Ben Bova and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Easton press that is frequently signed by the author as well. Some see stem-cell redearch as mankind's greatest scientific breakthrough. Others see a blasphemous attempt to play God. Suddenly, the possibility of immortality exists. Two brothers, both doctors, stand on opposite ends of the controversy. To Dr. Arthur Marshak, his work is a momentous gift to humanity. To Jessie Marshak, it is a curse. Between them stands a beautiful, remarkable woman both brothers will do anything to save. Somehow, before it is too late, Arthur and Jesse Marshak must bridge the gap that divides them on an issue that could mean life or death for millions.Given Ben Bova's extensive works of Science Fiction and non-fiction, there are perhaps few better qualified to adress the complex issues that surround today's scientific breakthroughs.

Discovering Ben Bova as a writer is an exciting adventure through the depths of space and time. Beautiful New copy in as-new condition. Published by the Easton Press.

49 Brown, John Horae Subsecivae
Edinburgh David Douglas 1890 Half-Leather Very Good+ No Jacket 8vo 
John Brown (1810-1882) was a Scottish physician and friend of Thackeray and Ruskin. He wrote primarily on non-technical subjects related to medicine and to the problems of the doctor. He had a general interest in, and a sympathy for all humanity. The three volumes of "Horae Subsecivae" (Leisure Hours) were his principal and first literary work. He had previously published some medical papers. The first volume of Horae was on medical subjects and the second and third volume were on general subjects. All the volumes are deserving of our attention because they are full of penetrating commentary on writers and other notables contemporary to Brown. Brown's two most famous essays, one on Rab the Dog and another on Marjorie Fleming, the friend of Sir Walter Scott that died as a child, have from here been abstracted as separate volumes in the past. This is the "New edition" in 3 volumes. The books are bound in Three-quarter leather over marbled boards with matching marble endpapers. There is Gilt lettering on the spines. The first volume was published in 1890, the second in 1893 and the third in 1889. Volumes one and three each have a frontispiece. All are in the same binding and in Very Good+ condition with just a small amount of wear to the tips and a bit of shelf-wear to the top of the spine of volume three. The bindings are tight and the interiors of the books are very clean. The set makes a lovely presentation. We are pleased to send pictures on request.

New York Arbor House 1985 First Edition Hard Cover As New Fine 8vo Signed by Author
This is a beautiful, as new, signed volume by the prolific author Anthony Burgess. Published by Arbor House in 1985, it is the first trade edition after a Limited edition by the Franklin Library which I also carry. A satin ribbon bookmark is bound in. Anthony Burgess is the man who brought us A Clockwork Orange and altered our concept of the English language forever. A letter from the publisher is laid in and the book contains a two page special message for the first edition written by Anthony Burgess. This book is absolutely in pristine and unread condition. The Kingdom of the Wicked is a sweeping novel of the very early days of Christianity. The time is just after the Crucifixion when the Apostles set about spreading the Gospel. Being all too human, they argue over strategy and tactics, over what is permissible according to the mother faith (Judaism) and what is not. All the while they face opposition from the rabbinical court in Jerusalem, a succession of mad emperors in Rome and firmly entrenched pagan beliefs throughout the empire. It is a very handsome volume and would make a wonderful addition to any collection of fine books. We are pleased to send pictures on request.

51 Burke, James Lee Black Cherry Blues
New York Little Brown Company 1989 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine 8vo Signed by Author
This is a fine copy of an early James Lee Burke Novel. In this masterful novel Burke proves himself both a brilliant storyteller and a prose stylist who ranks with the best in America. This book won the prestigious Edgar Award for best Mystery. This is the third Dave Robicheaux novel and if you have read James Lee Burke, you probably know and love this character. This book was acquired in the Author's home town of New Iberia, Louisiana and purchased from the bookstore that Burke often mentions in his books. The book is in Fine condition and has a very slight crease at the extreme fore-edge of the front board. It is on the right upper side and probably came from the publisher this way because it does not show itself on the edge or on the front pastedown endpaper. It did not come from being bumped or dropped. It is intrinsic to the volume. It is hardly noticable. There are four tiny, tiny spots on the fore-edge of the textblock. Otherwise the book is beautiful and Fine with a red wrap-around spine and silver lettering on that spine that is pristine and unfaded. The author has signed this novel directly on the title page. The dustjacket is just beautiful and is virtually as-new. There are no flaws and it is not price-clipped. The story deals with Dave's college roomate, a has-been rockabilly star, who makes a surprise appearance. Robicheaux is thrust into an escalating chain of events that take him back, ironically, to the very oil company that his father worked for. In coming to the aid of an old friend he entangles himself in a violent world that he had sworn to forsake. A world of ruthless Mafia goons, wily federal agents, and the continuing blandishments of the 'Water Spirits' who speak to him from a place where an unerring peace holds sway. Black Cherry Blues is one of Burke's very best books and his books are all great. It has unusual depth, range, and impact. We are pleased to send pictures on request.

52 Burke, James Lee Dixie City Jam
New York Hyperion 1994 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine 8vo Signed by Author
This volume is in fine condition and a great example of this James Lee Burke novel. The dust-jacket is also in very fine condition and it is not price-clipped. It is a First Edition and a First Printing. It is signed directly on the title page by Mr. Burke. This is one of the novels in the 'Dave Robicheaux' series. Each novel stands alone and they do not have to be read in the order in which they were published. James Lee Burke stands head and shoulders over most writers of mysteries and thrillers. His method of writing is almost lyrical at times and his books are examples of Fine modern Literature and not simply mysteries. He has written almost thirty previous novels. In this novel the search for a Forgotten Nazi submarine sunk off the coast of New Orleans stirs up old hatreds submerged for just as long. Out there under the salt there are the bodies of German seamen who used to wait at the mouth of the Mississippi for unescorted American tankers sailing from the oil refineries of Baton Rouge to the Gulf. As a child, Dave Robicheaux has been haunted by the sailors' images. Then, as a young student he'd accidentally discovered one of their subs while scuba diving. Robicheaux, a detective with the New Iberia sheriff's office finds himself and his family at serious risk, stalked for his knowledge of a watery burial ground by a man who believes that the Holocaust was a big hoax. This book was purchased inBurke's home town of New Iberia at the bookstore that is mentioned in many of Burke's novels. James Lee Burke is my favorite writer of books of mystery and suspense and recently I took a vacation to visit New Iberia which is his home. It is a wonderful place in the very heart of Cajun country and this environment shows through in all of his novels. We are pleased to send pictures on request.

53 Burke, James Lee Morning for Flamingos, A
New York Little Brown Company 1990 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine 8vo Signed by Author. Signed by Illustrator
James Lee Burke is one of our finest living novelists. His books are not just mysteries. They are written in a literary style that is both unique and beautiful. If you have not read Burke I highly recommend him to you. This book was acquired in the author's home town of New Iberia, Louisiana, deep in Cajun country. This is a Dave Robicheaux novel and it is the First edition and First printing. This is the fourth Robicheaux novel. Robicheaux is a main and continuing character in many of the novels of James Lee Burke. This is a most accomplished and action-packed novel. This book is in excellent condition. All four corners are square and the author has signed the book directly on the title page. There is a light scratch to the back board which really does not detract. The dustjacket shows the tiniest of shelf-wear to the extreme top and bottom of the spine panel. It is in no way significant. The dustjacket is not price-clipped. I consider this a fine copy of an early James Lee Burke novel (1990). Dave Robicheaux is a Cajun detective and this novel delivers a volatile mix of Mafia drug running and Cajun Voodoo magic, as Dave goes undercover into the sleepy, torrid depths of the New Orleans criminal world. A real page-turner this volume will be enjoyed by all who love good writing. We are pleased to send pictures on request.

55 Burke, James Lee White Doves at Morning- a Novel of the American Civil War
New York Simon and Schuster 2003 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine Signed by Author
James Lee Burke is one of our finest living novelists. His books are not just suspense and detective novels and this work is completely different. His books are written in a literary style that is both unique and beautiful. This novel is somewhat unusual for Mr. Burke. The volume was acquired in Burke's hometown of New Iberia, Louisiana from the bookstore that he so often mentions in his novels. The book is signed by the author directly on the title page. This is the First Edition as well as the First printing.The book is brand new and in very fine condition. The dustjacket is also in very fine condition and it is not price-clipped. Set in Louisiana and spanning the years 1864-1868, this passionate novel of the Civil War tells the story of the author's ancestor and Confederate soldier Willie Burke. Willie is a classic Burke hero and is moral to the point of lunacy. Willie is soon in conflict with his superiors. The juncture of Willie Burke and the Confederate Army is akin to the meeting of a wrecking ball and a crystal shop. Many of the characters in this wonderful novel are based on actual historical figures. 'White Doves at Morning' unlike most books with war as their theme, does not concentrate on battles but instead looks to the edges of Grand events: The detritus that wars create, the human cost, and the terrible aftermath. A wonderful and compelling read.

Then another murder occurs and the victim is a drugged out prostitute who is the daughter of a local Mafia bigwig. This is another great story and great read from this most prolific author.

It is a First Edition and a First Printing. It is signed directly on the otherwise blank page following the ffep page by Mr. Burke. This is one of the novels in the 'Dave Robicheaux' series. Each novel stands alone and they do not have to be read in the order in which they were published. James Lee Burke stands head and shoulders over most writers of mysteries and thrillers. His method of writing is almost lyrical at times and his books are examples of Fine modern Literature and not simply mysteries. He has written twenty-six previous novels. This novel finds Dave Robicheaux far from his New Iberia roots, attempting to relax in the untouched wilderness of rural Montana. He, his wife, and his buddy Clete Purcell have retreated to an old friend’s ranch hoping to spend their time fishing and enjoying their distance from the harshness of post-Katrina Louisiana. The serenity is soon shattered when two college students are found brutally murdered in the hills behind where they are staying. This is an expertly drawn, gripping story and a wonderful read.

Very near fine proof. The seventh book in this popular suspense series. An Irene Kelly Mystery. Uncorrected proofs are published in very small quantities before the first edition and are therefore more scarce than the first edition. A terrific story and a fine uncorrected proof. There is a very slight crease to the top right corner of the front panel. It is almost invisible and very light. Nicholas Parrish kills for pleasure. Now he wants to make a deal: His death sentence for a body.Parrish claims that the body is buried in the remote Sierra Nevada mountains. If Parrish will lead the authorities to her body, they will not demand the death sentence for his heinous crimes.But Parrish has no intention of spending his life behind bars and he plans some deadly surprises. Before long, Irene Kelly, who has covered this murder from the beginning, finds herself trapped in the mountains with a dedicated serial killer who is ready to strike again. This proof has a tiny bump to the extreme left of the spine at about midpoint. It is really just a tiny piece of paper that is present and attached. It is almost invisible. The spine has no creases and this book has never been read. Its yellow wraps are clean and unsoiled. Really a beautiful proof and a great story!

69 Burroughs, William Naked Lunch
New York Grove Press 1966 1st Thus Mass Market Paperback Near Fine No Jacket 12mo 
Here is one of the three Great classics from the "Beat" writers. They are Naked Lunch by William Burroughs, On the Road by Jack Kerouac, and Howl by Allen Ginsberg. Although this title is originally dated 1959 on the copyright page of the first hardcover as well as this paperback first,I have been made to understand that due to the suppression of the book it was not actually published until 1962 in the first edition. Naked Lunch is a work of depraved genius. This copy of the book is near fine with clean red coating to all edges and some very light soiling of the wraps, most noticeable on the back panel but even this is very light.There are no creases to the spine and the book appears to have been unread because it is very tight in it's wraps. Bound in the center of the book there is a business reply card and a two page card that explains what 'The Underground' is and names writers who are part of it such as Samuel Beckett and Harold Pinter. It is an explanation of why you should 'Join the Underground' and subscribe to the long gone Evergreen Magazine which was a revolutionary publication.Considering it's age and it's format this is a really nice copy of this classic work. It is a major work of 20th century fiction and an important work in literary history. We are pleased to send pictures on request.

70 Butler, Samuel Hudibras
London 1663 First Edition Full-Leather Very Good No Jacket 8vo 
Just Reduced by $500.00 Samuel Butler's 'Hudibras' is a literary treasure by any estimation. It concerns the English Civil War and it was intended to ridicule the Presbyterians, Dissenters, and others who had fought against the crown in the conflict between Charles I and Oliver Cromwell. It was published shortly after the restoration of Charles II and the poem had immense popularity at the time. This set is an extremely rare offering as it contains all three volumes (1663-1664-1678) in the first edition and the first issue. I have found no other copies of this set currently available and the ABPC indicates that no full first edition set has been offered for decades. The three volumes are the first issues of the authentic 'author's own' First editions. All points of issue in Lowndes are present in these books. The volumes are bound in full calf (mid 17th century) with hand tooled ornamentation on all front and back boards. The boards show some rubbing and staining from age but they are beautiful nevertheless. The textblocks are virtually pristine with no foxing except on the blank preliminary pages. Volume two lacks the imprimatur preliminary page. Otherwise the texts are absolutely complete. There have been minor repairs done by a professional binder to strengthen the inner rear hinges of both volumes 1 and 2. The errata are all present as called for. Volume three has been rebacked. Volume three was issued in a different size than the other two volumes and this has been compensated for in the magnificent presentation that I commissioned for this work. These are extremely rare books. PRESENTATION CASE: These fine volumes are housed in a full leather case that is made of the finest leather. The case is lined in hand-painted book paper much as the marbled paper found on endpapers. There is a small shim installed in the case to compensate for the differing height of volume three. Each volume has it's own hand made cover that it goes into before inserting the volume into the case. The three covers are made from both leather and the same painted paper that is inside the case. The spines of the covers are leather with leather labels and 23k gold titling indicating the title and volume. I know that this sounds complicated but these things can be hard to describe. I would encourage you to ask for pictures if you have a serious interest in this set. The rear of the covers is also leather. All in all, this is a wonderful copy and presentation of the Great 'Mock-Epic' poem 'Hudibras. We are pleased to send pictures on request.

74 Canaday, John Lives of the Painters - 4 Volumes
New York Norton 1969 1st/2nd Printing Hard Cover Fine Fine 8vo 
This is a beautiful set of four volumes. The set is in Fine condition and almost new. This is the First Edition and the second printing. The only thing that I must mention is that each volume has the tiniest shelf-wear to the extreme top of the dustcover on the spine. It is virtually invisible and probably will become completely invisible when I place the books in an archival Brodart dust jacket protector before shipment. The set is magnificent. The Lives of the Painters is an important and fascinating history of Western painting and its artists written by the renowned historian and critic of the fine arts, John Canaday. In his incisive and engaging style, Canaday unfolds the history by means of biographical and critical essays on more than 450 individual painters. The four volumes cover the development of painting from the close of the Middle Ages in Italy down through Cezanne and his revolution in painting. There are 176 full color Plates, 350 monochrome illustrations and 1,456 pages in the four volumes. The fourth volume is completely plates and illustrations on fine gloss paper and they are absolutely beautiful. Again, the books are in virtually new condition and have clearly never been used. All dustjackets are present and this is a set that can entertain, educate, and be enjoyed by generations. We are pleased to send pictures on request.

75 Canright, Robert Achieve Lasting Happiness
Bloomington, Indiana Authorhouse 2005 First Edition Trade Paperback As New No Jacket 8vo Signed by Author
This book Extrapolates the philosophy of Confucius and applies it to modern times. It was Written by a former Mathematics teacher with parents as well as their children in mind. It was Signed and dated for me by the author at the Fort Worth bookshow in October 2005. This volume is in as new condition and it is in a trade paperback (large) format. Readable and informative this volume can be a life-changing experience. The author says in his preface that "In the dawn of a new millenium, we stand at a fork in the road. One path leads to conflict and turmoil and has already destroyed the World Trade Towers and bankrupted many corporations, Enron and Worldcom being just two of many examples. The other path leads to tolerance, peace, and prosperity. Humanity will face either its brightest or darkest days in the years to come. Peace and prosperity seems the obvious choice". He goes on to say that with the world becoming more interconnected every day that peace and prosperity seem out out of reach and that diversity without tolerance leads to strife. Fortunately a solution is found from the Far East. This book gives us a blueprint for examining our lives in ways that will empower us like never before. Lessons on life and ethics that are spiritual but not religious. The lessons are respectful of all religious belief and thus are accessible to people of all persuasions. At the end of part one there is a twenty-eight day study to begin the process of self-transformation. Part two of the book is "The Analects of Confucius" updated for the third millenium. This is a book of self-discovery and an important philosophical contribution to our times. We are pleased to send pictures on request.

77 Captain William Lubber Piratetology
Cambridge, MA Candlewick Press 2006 First Edition Hard Cover Fine No Jacket 4to 
This is a wonderful book for children ages 6 and up. It will also be enjoyed by adults who are interested in unique items. The size of the book is full quarto 12" tall and 10 1/2" wide. It is something of a 3d book because virtually every page has a packet or envelope to be opened. There are terrific illustrations and an actual compass as part of the front cover. It is decorated with faux rubies (not real) and it is a luscious volume. The book is in Fine condition and all of the internals are present. The publisher writes: "Piratetology was allegedly found in an old sea chest by divers searching for wrecks on the Grand Banks of Newfoundland in 2006.While it mostly conforms to accepted ideas about historical pirates, there are a few elements, such as the "Black Spot" which were previously unknown except in works of fiction such as Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island. Research has revealed no other traces of William Lubber, his ship the "Sea Cat" or his nemesis, Arabella Drummond" I would take all that with a grain of salt but who knows! Anyway it is a lovely and really entertaining book. It is also extremely colorful. We are pleased to send pictures on request.

81 Chefitz, Michael 33rd Hour, The
New York St. Martin's Press 2001 First Edition Proof Wraps Fine No Jacket 4to 
This is Michael Chefitz's second novel bound in manuscript form. The book is in beautiful condition. It is quarto in size(11" tall and just over 8" wide) and these are the Advance Uncorrected Proofs. Chefitz's previous novel 'The Seventh Telling', a bestseller. dealt with the discipline of the Kabbalah in it's genuine form and this novel deals with the teaching of the Torah in the same way. I know that those words make it sound like a book of non-fiction, but this is a true novel based on real experiences in the teaching of the Torah.This is a remarkable piece of modern Judaica in a pre-first edition format. This proof was published in a very small printing so that the author and the publisher could go over it and make any changes that were necessary before publication of the first edition. This book is much more rare than the First Edition and it even has a couple of change indications marked with a sharpie by either the Author or publisher, This copy is very close to the publisher and author making it a very collectible item. We are pleased to send pictures on request..

This is a wonderful and rare item for the Tom Clancy collector. This Advance Reading Copy, which is pre-First-Edition, is Very Near fine and appears to be unread. There is some very light dusting to the bottom edge but this is a really nice copy. The scans do not do the book justice, as the colors of the wraps do not scan well. Any mottling of the front cover in the picture is a scanner anomaly and does not exist on the book. The volume is in the format of a Trade Paperback as almost all advances are and it is protected within a clear mylar wrapper. The book is, of course, written in Mr. Clancy's fast and gripping style. It is another great adventure story from the man who gave us The Hunt for Red October and Red Storm Rising.

86 Clark, C.H. Catalog of the Library of C.H. Clark 2 Vols.
Collins Printing House 1888 First Edition Limited Three-Quarter Leather Fine No Jacket 4to Signed by Author
Just Reduced! This Beautiful and Very Fine two volume set is a descriptive catalog of the Library accumulated by famed collector C.H.Clarke. It is a Privately Printed Limited Edition of 100 copies and and this copy is number 8. The books are gorgeously bound in three-quarter leather over marbled boards with Fine endpapers of marbled design that match the covers.The books are quarto in size. There are sewn in silk bookribbons and the ribbon in volume one is unattached but fully present. The spines are leather and are decorated profusely in gilt with six compartments and gilt decoration in each one. The title lettering on the spine is also in gilt and it is still bright and beautiful. This two-volume descriptive catalog lists hundreds of books that were in one of the most significant collections in history. The catalog is pure enjoyment to page through as well as a very important reference for any collector. This is because it is interesting enough for the casual reader while being the work of a very capable bibliophile. This library is of unique interest and this set is very rare. The books can be used to research points of issue and many interesting pieces of information about the book you are checking. As an example of the thoroughness with which this book was done it is only necessary to quote from the prefatory note what is said of the sub-divisions. "The catalog is divided into three parts: A titular descriptive list of the books in the Library followed by bibliographical and other notes detailing their scope and the date of original publication etc. Then there is a list of the short titles of books arranged under 'subjects'. There is also a general index, so arranged that the reader may readily ascertain what works or portions of works relate to any particular matter". Over all this is an entertaining manner in which the curious information has been conveyed. The notes are overflowing with odd bits of learning which take on an added interest from their place in the context alongside all that is essential to know about the imprint, degree of rareness, binding and history of any given work. It includes the mechanism of books, binding, paper, type, size, edition, and printer. It has a wealth of bibliographical, biographical, and literary description, which makes known every characteristic alike of author and book. Consequentially as a book of reference this set has very special value and interest to the book collector. It covers many of the works of famous bookbinders and includes the best of printing and binding and whatever is of bibliographical value. There is very little wear to the books as some of the corners show a very small worn spot and there is tiny wear to the extreme bottom of the spine of volume two. It is not visible looking at the spine of the books. I include with this wonderful set newspaper clippings of reviews of the catalog when it was first published . They come from an 1888 newspaper and are hardly toned from age. Also present is the original bookbinder's label unattached and in pristine condition. The book-binders were Pawson and Nicholson who were working in Philadelphia and were very well known as they are today. These books look incredible on the shelf and will serve any booklover or book collector or any lover of beautiful binding and presentation. Rare and beautiful. We are pleased to send pictures on request.

90 Cohen, Leonard Book of Longing
Toronto, Ontario McCleland & Stewart 2007 1st Thus Trade Paperback Near Fine No Jacket 8vo 
This is the First Printing of this First Thus Trade Paperback volume. It is in beautiful condition. Leonard Cohen has been known for decades for his poetry and his music and lyrics. He is one of our finest living poets and this volume shows many examples of that. In 'Book of Longing' published in 2007 he produced his first book of poetry in twenty years. He is Canadian by birth and yet his language and artistry have brought him worldwide recognition. This trade paperback is in very near fine condition. Its only flaw is very slight small light spot on the top edge about 3/4" from where it meets the fore edge. Otherwise the book is beautiful. The spot does not detract at all. There are no creases on the spine and no bumped corners. The book is enhanced by many illustrations which can be both playful and provocative. There is dark humor here as well as tragedy and timeless meditative work. The poems in this lovely book were written on Mt. Baldy and in Los Angeles, Montreal, and Mumbai. It was a #1 bestseller when it was published and the book will please anyone who loves poetry and working with words to create a world. Cohen is probably best known for his song "Suzanne" and those who only know him by his music will be delighted by this wonderful book of poetry. We are pleased to send pictures on request.

91 Coleman, George Poetical Vagaries and Vagaries Vindicated
London Longman Hurst Rees Constable 1814 Second Edition Half-Leather Very Good No Jacket 12mo 
This is a very nice volume from 1814. Its size is 12mo and It contains two works. The first is 'Poetical Vagaries' by George Coleman the younger, and the second is 'Vagaries Vindicated' by the same author. The second work is 'addressed to the Reviewers' so I would guess that Coleman is responding to his critics. Both works are second edition and were published in 1814. The binding is half-leather over paper boards and the binding is tight. There is an old external repair to the leather spine of the book and the boards have been professionally reattached. There is a name written on the inside front board. The textblock is tight and clean with virtually no foxing. There is slight toning to the pages from age but it is quite light. This is the first time that these two works have been printed together. An attractive volume. We are pleased to send pictures on request.

94 Collins, Charles, LaPierre, Dominque Fifth Horseman, The
New York Simon & Schuster 1980 First Edition Proof Wraps Very Good No Jacket as Issued 8vo 
This book was written by the same authors of the huge bestsellers Is Paris Burning and Or I'll Dress You In Mourning. They are historical and biographical novelists that write with a gripping and compelling style. This books's subject is the ultimate terrorist threat and the possible apocalyptic consequences of nuclear technology. This proof was published in 1980, long before the terrorist events that we are all now familiar with. Looking back, the book almost seems prophetic. This volume is an uncorrected proof copy. This means that it was published before the first edition. Proofs serve the purpose of allowing the author and the publisher to make any changes or corrections before the final publishing of the first edition. They are produced in very small printings. They are always more rare than the first edition and this one is in very nice condition. There is some slight toning to the book and the original publishers sheet sent to reviewers is attached to the inside front cover very neatly. There is a touch of bumping to the spine which appears to be from the publisher as well as a touch of very, very, light soiling. A really nice proof of an important novel. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
