Description:
London: Kerby & Endean,, 1878. Wounded whilst gallantly doing his duty" - Major Pack and the Royal Fusiliers at the Redan First edition of this decidedly uncommon, critical firsthand account of service in the Crimea by Colonel Reynell Pack (1817-1860), who was with the 7th Regiment of Foot, the Royal Fusiliers, during the period described. Loosely inserted is a fascinating group of letters addressing Pack's role in the failed attack on the Redan, one of the major actions of the Crimean War. The British suffered severe losses under a withering fire on the approach to the heavily fortified Russian position. Two letters (dated 16 July and 10 August 1855) are from Pack to "My dear General" asking that his role in the fighting be recognized. In response, the July letter is forwarded along with a hand-written note (dated 28 August 1855) from General Sir James Simpson asking that Pack's leadership be acknowledged ("If you can yourself aid him, or put him on the right way to do so - I will have great… Read More

Description:
New York: Holt, Rinhart, and Winston,, 1969. First edition, first printing, inscribed by the author and cover designer at the book's launch event, an invitation for which (using Brainard's starry cover design) is loosely inserted. Padgett's inscription on the title page reads: "For Harvey [illegible] Doneg DONEGAN at the Gotham"; Brainard's inscription on the final leaf reads: "To Harvey, love Joe", with blue ink stars mimicking his cover design surrounding the inscription. The launch event for this collection was held at Manhattan's iconic Gotham Book Mart, which Padgett and Brainard frequented at this time. Padgett (b. 1942) and Brainard (1942-1994) met at high school, where they formed the White Dove Review, which published the writings of Allen Ginsberg and Robert Creeley. After completing a Fulbright scholarship in Paris, Padgett became a central figure in the second generation New York School Poets, a group that included Brainard, Ted Berrigan, Alice Notley, Bill Berkson, and others.

Description:
London: [White: Edinburgh] Printed for J. S. Jordan, [Printed for Silvester Doig],, 1791 & 1792. Scarce early Paine, in contemporary tract volume Sixth London edition of Paine's Rights of Man (the year of first publication), bound with the first and only edition of White's Rational Freedom, a scarce and impassioned condemnation of Paine, in a volume of five political works. Paine's great defence of the inalienable rights of the people, and their right to revolution when governments do not uphold these rights, went through many printings in quick succession and met a wide readership, despite the Pitt government's attempts at censorship. Written in response to Edmund Burke's Reflections on the Revolution in France, Paine defends the French Revolution and proposes reforms to Britain's own system. The publication, at a time when there were real fears that popular revolution would occur in England, caused a great stir. Various pamphlets opposing Paine were published, including White's particularly… Read More

Description:
London: printed for James Ridgway,, 1793. Second edition under this title, following the first of the same year; originally published in 1787 under the title Prospects on the Rubicon. The pamphlet was published "as an attempt to discourage an English war with France, with its inevitable result of additional taxes falling heavily on the poor and bringing ruin to both countries. The pamphlet had not been anti-monarchial; it had, in fact, supported the view of the state as an alliance of the French king and the people against the nobility" (Williamson, Thomas Paine, p. 116). Reference is also made to the use of continental paper money in America. The copy of the Manchester merchant William Johnson Edenson, with his ownership signature to half-title. Octavo (211 x 131 mm). Disbound, earlier sew holes in gutter. Staining in gutter throughout, minor soiling to first and final page. A good copy. ESTC T5861; Goldsmiths 15553; Kress B.2587.

Description:
London: Printed for H. D. Symonds,, 1792. The revolutionary debate A pamphlet volume of radical and anti-radical works published in London around the French Revolution, including early editions of both parts of Paine's Rights of Man, the response of future US president John Quincy Adams to Paine, and an apparently unrecorded account of the execution of Louis XVI. The Rights of Man, Paine's great defence of the inalienable rights of the people, and their right to revolution when governments do not uphold these rights, went through many printings in quick succession and met a wide readership, despite the Pitt government's attempts at censorship. Written in response to Edmund Burke's Reflections on the Revolution in France, Paine defends the French Revolution and proposes reforms to Britain's own system. John Quincy Adams's response to Paine was first published in an American newspaper in 1791. "Adams' articles did not directly condemn the French Revolution, but they argued against revolutionary change… Read More

Description:
London: Faulder and Son,, 1805-1810. A handsome Regency binding An attractive set of Paley's complete works. The English period binding is an exquisite example of the contemporary taste for intricate decoration, featuring a combination of fine floral tools in blind and in gilt, and with prominent panelled borders on the covers which were especially popular at the turn of the century. The set comprises a mix of later editions, except for Sermons and Tracts (1808), here a first edition. Natural Theology (1802), considered Paley's "most original and entertaining book" (ibid.), contains his arguments for the existence of God, famously introducing the argument from design and the "watchmaker analogy". The Principles of Moral and Political Philosophy (first published in 1785), Paley's first work, was a success that promoted the idea of utility in moral philosophy, influenced Jeremy Bentham, and remained an essential text for students of philosophy well into the 19th century. Horae Paulinae (1790) and… Read More

Description:
Cambridge: Macmillan and Co.,, 1861. First edition, first impression, of the most popular of all poetry anthologies, widely reprinted into modern times, and which did much to establish an accepted canon of the "best" poems in English literature. Three impressions, deceptively similar, were published - this first impression is distinguished by the relevant points established by Foxon, with a Roman type half-title and the price of "4/6" on the spine (changed to Gothic type and the price removed for second and later impressions). The first impression was published in July 1861; based on Palgrave's notes in his own copies, the second impression was published in October, and the third in November. Dedicated to his friend Alfred Tennyson, with whom he had broached the idea of a different kind of anthology during a walking tour of Cornwall in 1860, Palgrave's Golden Treasury gathered what he considered the greatest and best-known English poetry from the 16th century down to the Romantics. "It remains one of… Read More

Description:
Paris: Maradan,, 1789-93. The celebrated French translation in the original boards First edition in French. First published in German, this is the account of Pallas's expedition across the central Russian provinces from 1768 to 1774. He reported on the passage of Venus, brought back numerous animal and plant specimens, and made anthropological observations of local peoples. Simon Peter Pallas (1741-1811) was a German zoologist and botanist and a leading figure in the Russian scientific enlightenment. He was educated at Halle, Göttingen, and at Leiden, where he submitted his doctorate in 1760. After a trip to England to study natural history and geology, Pallas settled at The Hague, where he published the acclaimed Elenchus zoophytorum and Miscellanea zoologica. He soon attracted the attention of Catherine the Great, who invited him to St Petersburg, where he became a professor of natural history at the Imperial Academy of Sciences. In 1768, at the specific request of the tsarina, he was placed in… Read More

Description:
New York: Friendship Press,, 1934. First edition, first printing, scarce presentation copy, inscribed on the front free endpaper, "To Mrs. M. C. Gile. With the writer's gratitude and good wishes - Albert W. Palmer. May 15, 1934". Albert Wentworth Palmer (1879-1954) was a Christian minister and the president of the Chicago Theological Seminary. Between the wars, he travelled extensively in Japan and, after Pearl Harbor, emerged as a vocal opponent of internment. Here, he calls for American openness towards people from East and South-east Asia and an end to policies of economic and racial discrimination. Palmer is also remembered for The Mountain Trail and Its Message (1911), in which he recounts time spent hiking with John Muir and the Sierra Club. The recipient, Josephine Ellen Richards (1855-1938) was an educator and evangelical. In 1886, she married Moses Clement Gile (1858-1916), a professor of classical languages at Colorado College. In 1900, she founded a departmental Greek and Latin library at… Read More

Description:
London: Hodder and Stoughton Limited,, 1939. First edition, first impression, in the rare dust jacket. Published shortly after the outbreak of the Second World War, this espionage novel describes "a life and death struggle with von Nessel, most dangerous Nazi agent in England" (jacket blurb). The authors co-wrote "among the best examples of popular espionage fiction" in the interwar period under the Francis Beeding pseudonym (Survey I, p. 86). Palmer and Saunders met while working for the League of Nations, an experience that inspired many of their works. Their partnership "produced a series of entertaining espionage novels that, because of their quality, appealed to the sophisticated reader of the day. No less appealing was the other fiction produced by the two. Writing is supposed to be a lonely business, and successful literary collaborations are few, but that of Palmer and Saunders lasted for more than twenty years, during which, as Francis Beeding, they produced more than thirty popular novels"… Read More

Guiyang: Guizhou renmin chubanshe,, 1956. First edition, second printing, of this genuinely rare and visually striking story of revolutionary selflessness, heroic sacrifice, and the people's love for the Communist Party. In keeping with the increasing scarcity of Chinese comics from the 1950s, WorldCat records no copies of the first or second printings. This story is set in the town of Zunyi at the time of Mao's famous Long March to escape Chiang Kai-shek's Kuomintang forces. While passing through the town, the Red Army diligently works to improve the lives of the people, and a soldier is killed defending the townsfolk against Chiang's soldiers. Following the Red Army's departure, grateful locals honour the dead unknown soldier with a gravestone, incurring the displeasure of local landlords and a Kuomintang official. Defiant locals resist multiple attempts to have the grave exhumed and removed, and even when local officials eventually prevail, they continue to commemorate the soldier in private… Read More

Singapore: André Publications,, 1970. The 1970 edition, scarce institutionally and in commerce, of Papineau's colourful guide to Hong Kong, pleasingly with the maps in excellent condition and still retaining the original promotional bookmark for C. K. Tang, "Singapore's treasure house of old world loveliness". WorldCat records just two copies in the United States and one in Australia. By the 1960s, Hong Kong had taken its place among the world's premier holiday destinations. Like Papineau's long-running guide to Singapore, the present example combines a lively style with recommendations to fit a range of tastes and budgets. Adverts for the Mandarin Hotel ("if you order breakfast at 3 a.m., we don't ask why"), the jewellers Lane Crawford, and multiple fur dealers speak to the increasingly lucrative nature of the Asia tourist market as middle-class westerners sought the escapist high of international travel.

Editions from the post-1945 golden age of mass tourism, when Singapore was developing into a modern, vibrant travel destination, are now rarely found in commerce.

Following a hard day's sightseeing and shopping, hungry visitors can sample the Elizabethan Grill at Raffles Hotel - "designed for the discriminating" - or the Cathay Restaurant, complete with a "bewildering list of dishes, served with all the grace and delicacy of old China" and "invariably a floor show or delightful singer to charm your cares away while you eat" (p.… Read More
