Description:
Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott Company,, 1963. The book sails with majesty through caverns measureless to man First edition, first printing, of the author's debut novel, in the first issue dust jacket without reviews on the rear panel. V was awarded the William Faulkner Foundation Award for best debut novel; Pynchon was heralded as a "young writer of staggering promise" (Plimpton). "In this sort of book", wrote Time Magazine, "there is no total to arrive at. Nothing makes any waking sense. But it makes a powerful, deeply disturbing dream sense. Nothing in the book seems to have been thrown in arbitrarily, merely to confuse, as is the case when inept authors work at illusion. Pynchon appears to be indulging in the fine, pre-Freudian luxury of dreams dreamt for the dreaming. The book sails with majesty through caverns measureless to man". Octavo. Original light purple cloth, spine lettered in silver, 'V' design on front cover in blind, dark yellow endpapers, top edge black, fore edge untrimmed. With… Read More

Yours sincerely, Graham Seton Hutchinson. 1st September 1941, Booker Hill Farm, High Wycombe, Bucks."

Description:
Moscow: Iskusstvo,, 1952. An artistic ode to the Sino-Soviet friendship First edition, first printing, of this album commemorating the visit of the first Soviet art delegation to socialist China in autumn 1949. Despite a seemingly generous print run of 10,000 copies, we have traced just 7 locations via WorldCat and other copies have not been previously encountered in commerce. This album marks a warm period in Sino-Soviet relations before ideological and geopolitical tensions derailed the cause of global fraternal communism. Konstantin Finogenov (1902-1989) was a Soviet propaganda artist and holder of the Stalin Prize of the second degree, making him a natural participant in the 1949 delegation. Unsurprisingly, his drawings glorify the Chinese Communist Party's cause, accentuate the noble pains and sacrifices required when making revolution, and stress the excitement accompanying the arrival of "New China". The first quarter of the album is dominated by drawings of Mao and other party leaders in… Read More

Description:
Amsterdam, Atlas Novus. , 1635. Highly decorative map centered on Valencia and extending south to Murcia and Orihuella and North to the Cenia by the famous Dutch cartographer Blaeu. Map embellished with sea monster, ships, rhumb lines emanating from compass rose and ornate title cartouche with the arms of Valencia. The map is very detailed and gives many place names, smaller villages or settlements. Dutch text to verso. Joan (John) Bleau (1596-1673) was a son of a famous Dutch cartographer, Willem Janzoon Bleau, and he shared his father's passion and continued his work. Joan Bleau's 'Atlas Maior' is one of the most extraordinary works within this category ever produced. It is known for its exquisite engraving, calligraphy and colouring as well as heraldic detail, pictorial work and the intricate cartouches, which all amounted to the appeal of this work. In fact it is argued that some of the maps produced by Joan were considered to be the finest published anywhere in the seventeenth century. Copper… Read More

Paris: Voyage Pittoresque de la Grece,, 1782. A pair of engravings - the top showing a group of travellers with their horses resting by the imposing mountain at St. Etienne. The bottom engraving shows details of two classical statues, a colonnade and part of a tomb. In 1776 Choiseul-Gouffier and the artist J.B. Hilaire joined a cartographic survey of the Mediterranean. Volume I of Voyage Pittoresque, his account of their tour of the Greek islands, the coast of Asia Minor, and of his travels on the mainland, was immediately acclaimed on publication in 1778. According to Brunet, it was incontestably the most beautiful production of this kind seen until then. Choiseul-Gouffier's work offered for the first time, illustrations of remote places that complemented the scrupulously researched narrative. Copper engraving. Uncoloured.
