Description:
New York: Students of Wagner College,, 1963. First edition, sole printing, one of 150 copies distributed at no cost, inscribed by the contributor Gerard Malanga in the year of publication at the head of his contribution, "For Gene - Soon poems will be everywhere. Gerard. 22 May 63". X by X is an attractively illustrated magazine featuring the works of student-poets at Wagner College, Staten Island. Loosely inserted is the Wagner Poets's flyer for a poetry reading that took place on 23 November 1962 at the Living Theatre in New York, a venue notable for hosting "the oldest experimental theatre group in the USA" (Malina and Beck, p. 116); Malanga was one of the performers at the event. The flyer's verso prints reviews of the Wagner Literary Magazine, which Allen Ginsberg describes as "the best college magazine in America", while Sir Herbert Read writes "congratulations for an exciting performance". Gerard Malanga (b.1943) is a poet, photographer, actor, and filmmaker who the New York Times described as… Read More

Description:
New York: D. Van Nostrand Company,, 1926. Scarce in such bright, fresh condition and with the dust jacket First US edition, first printing, of the Nobel Prize-winning author's first book, scarce in such bright, fresh condition and with the dust jacket, which is rarely seen in commerce. "In his early days at Princeton, Compton devised an elegant method for demonstrating the Earth's rotation, but he was soon to begin his studies in the field of X-rays. He developed a theory of the intensity of X-ray reflection from crystals as a means of studying the arrangement of electrons and atoms, and in 1918 he started a study of X-ray scattering. This led, in 1922, to his discovery of the increase of wavelength of X-rays due to scattering of the incident radiation by free electrons, which implies that the scattered quanta have less energy than the quanta of the original beam. This effect, nowadays known as the Compton effect, which clearly illustrates the particle concept of electromagnetic radiation, was… Read More

Description:
[Likely Beijing: no stated publisher,, 1774]. One polity, many languages First edition of this unusual quintilingual work exhibiting the artistic skill of Chinese woodblock carvers. Compiled by the personal Buddhist tutor to the Qianlong emperor – China's Louis XIV – it lists slightly over 1,000 buddhas destined to appear in the present Buddhist aeon. We have traced just three institutional copies. Print was a vital vehicle for spreading Buddhist thought throughout the multicultural Qing empire. This compilation, based on the Bhadrakalpa Sutra, served as an invaluable scholarly and devotional reference for practising and aspiring Buddhists, as well as for those charged with producing religious commentaries. It begins with Kakusandha, an esteemed buddha of antiquity, and lists four names per page, with the five different languages (Chinese, Manchu, Mongolian, Tibetan, and Sanskrit phoneticized in Tibetan) arranged vertically. The compilation process was led by the senior court figure Changkya… Read More

Description:
Sichuan: Sichuan sheng xinwen tupian she,, 1979. First edition, first printing, unrecorded institutionally and uncommon in commerce with the original envelope, of this pack of materials for cadres to stage pop-up anti-Vietnam exhibitions in workplaces and community spaces. Small displays addressing current domestic and international issues were everyday sights in 1970s China. Issuing pre-made sets minimized the risk of overworked local officials preparing their own propaganda in a hurry and inadvertently deviating from the "party line". The present example includes 14 evocative images including of displaced overseas Chinese forced to leave Vietnam, people injured by the army, contested territory along the Sino-Vietnamese border, and an injured Chinese soldier undergoing surgery. Octavo. 14 photographic prints (150 x 201 mm), each numbered within the negative, 250 x 380 mm folding title poster, two folding sheets of captions (262 x 380 mm and 262 x 195 mm), all housed in original 235 x 183 mm brown… Read More

Description:
Shanghai: Shanghai hangkong gongye xuexiao,, 1967. A colourful collection of 53 propaganda songs compiled and printed by Red Guards at the Shanghai Aviation Technical School (Shanghai hangkong gongye xuexiao). Small-scale mimeographing was the lifeblood of the Cultural Revolution, allowing grassroots political groups to hold meetings, spread the gospel of radical Maoism, and outperform rivals in the contest to display revolutionary credentials. This collection was published on the eve of National Day by two of the school's ascendant factions: "Winder and Thunder Over Pujiang District" (Pujiang fenglei) and "Chairman Mao's Protection Corps" (Wei dong). The songs include "Mao's Works Are the Most Magisterial", "The Shepherd's Song", "Ah, Crane, May I Borrow Your Wings?", "I've Heard Our Frontier Soldiers Have Come Down from the Mountains", and many others employing the Cultural Revolution's distinctive combination of adulatory, patriotic, and folk rhetoric. Interspersed are quotations from Mao and… Read More

Description:
Beijing: Renmin chubanshe,, 1965. Mao for the connoisseur First trade deluxe edition, printed on high-quality paper and bound in the traditional Chinese scholarly style. Each volume could be purchased separately, with a whole set costing almost 50 yuan - more than a worker's average monthly pay under Mao. Although editions of Mao's works first appeared in the 1940s, a finalized canon of four volumes - covering his activities up to the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949 - was incrementally published by Renmin chiubanshe (People's Publishing House) between 1951 and 1960. A deluxe edition of these volumes was first published in 1964, printed on fine paper and bound in blue silk wrappers, and copies were made available only to senior cadres and generals. This trade version uses the same text, presented in vertical columns on folded leaves. Copies were issued in folding cases made of either cloth or stiff card. Four volumes in 16 parts, large octavo. Original brown wrappers, white silk… Read More
