Boston: Little, Brown & Co, 1938. First American edition. Hardcover. Very good -. 593 pp. Octavo. [21.5 cm]. Black semi-glossy paper over boards. Deckled edges. Publisher's red top stain. Corners bumped, pages toned and lightly foxed. Gilt title stamped to spine, which has sustained some slight water damage on the cloth near the head. Text block just beginning to crack at the rear tail. Céline's "Mort à crédit" or "Death on the Installment Plan" revitalized the traditionalist French genre by its blending of Gothic styles with the more modern technique of blurring the lines between character and author. It is the companion to "Journey to the End of the Night". In 1938, shortly after this book's release John Walcott backhandedly idolizes the book for its grotesque narcissism and apolitical theme. Céline's openness to disgust and candor fed into what we now call "dark humor

Melbourne: Oxford University Press Australia, October 1988. Hardcover. First Edition. Near Fine book in a Very Good jacket. Interior pristine. Spine straight and tight. Upper corners lightly bumped. Jacket lightly rubbed with a single one inch tear to front bottom edge. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. xiii + 347 pages. Over 300 illustrations. Heavy book: extra charges for expedited or international shipping. Captain Nicolas Baudin's early 19th-century voyage of scientific discovery to Australia is a little-known event in French and Australian history. Yet that voyage played an important part in the history of Australian and Pacific colonization, and in the long story of worldwide scientific exploration. Departing Le Havre in 1800, Baudin's expedition comprised two ships--the Naturaliste and the Géographe--and 238 men, including 22 scientists.
