Description:
London: Macmillan and Co, 1866. Second (First Published) Edition. Very good. John Tenniel. 192pp. Duodecimo [22 cm] rebound in gilt-stamped dark red morocco with raised spine bands. Binding pristine. Includes original pale blue free endpapers, now serving as flyleaves. Calligraphic ink name dated May 1st, 1866 on original front free endpaper, reinforcements to the edges of several leaves, light to moderate foxing throughout. With forty-two illustrations by John Tenniel. The first published edition, re-set from a copy of the recalled first issue. Williams, Madan, Green 46. The publication of Carroll's work appeared at a time when children's literature was produced primarily to teach moral lessons. Carroll's tale was, by contrast, wonderfully fantastical and nonsensical, and the book baffled critics at first. By the close of the 19th century, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass" had become the most popular children's books in England. Two decades later, the Alice story… Read More

Description:
Washington DC: Government Printing Office, 1881. Hardcover. Hayden's monumental survey of the American West, consisting of twelve annual reports, and including the map volume which was issued with the 12th annual report. Of great importance, is the fact that this is the most complete map volume that we have ever seen, with 4 additional maps. The set is sold together with Hayden's large folio atlas "Geological and Geographical Atlas of Colorado." In this set, the first book is the 1873 reprint which contains the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd annual reports. It is important to note that the 4th Annual Report has the cachet of bearing the bookplate "With the compliments of F. V. Hayden, U. S. Geologist." Flake 9204. Wheat, pp. 344-349. The volumes are good to about very good. Seven of the spines have been restored with varying amounts of the original backstrips overlaid. Five of the books have had tissue repairs or reinforcement to the hinges. Some of the spine titles are faded. The opening pages have occasional… Read More

'We commenced our publication here,' Taylor wrote to Brigham Young that April, 'not because we had means to do it, but because we were determined to fulfil our mission.'

Description:
Paris: Dorbon-Ainé, 1930. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Very good. SIGNED. Sextodecimo [16.5 cm] Quarterbound in parchment vellum with gray paper over boards. Top edge trimmed; other edges untrimmed. With French text. The extremities are minimally bumped and rubbed, and the boards are just a hair warped. A very attractive copy. The author's masterpiece. Signed by Bochorakova-Dittrichova in pencil on the title page. Number 8 in an edition limited to 310. Helena Bochorakova-Dittrichova (1894-1980) was the first female wordless novelist and the only woman to work in this medium during its heyday. She was born in the Moravian region of what is now the Czech Republic and spent most of her life in Brno, the Moravian capital. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and in 1923 received a government scholarship to study printmaking in Paris. Bochorakova-Dittrichova's unpublished wordless novel Malirka Na Cestach [The Artist on Her Journey] recounts this period in her life. In Paris, she first… Read More

Description:
1984. Two original works in pencil by famed underground artist R. Crumb, measuring 6 1/2 x 8 1/4". Drawn on lined paper. One of the drawings features a prominent burning candle surrounded by a series of small heads and busts of humans and animals. The following is written: "Luis Russel [sic] and his Orchestra / McKinney's / Cotton Pickers / In Dat Mornin' Jimmy [sic] Lunceford / Charlie Johnson's Orchestra / Buy Buy Baby / Chocolate Dandies / Beale Street Blues / Creep / Ben Polla(ck?) / Candle / March 22, 1962 / Benny Moten / 1984 / 1962." The second drawing features Crumb's signature depiction of a female character. Here, the woman is saying, "Where's Manlove Bradley?" I am able to find a reference to this sketch in a past Heritage auction record that describes a sketch by Crumb in the style of an Ivory Soap advertisement. On the verso of the soap sketch is a doodle of a voluptuous woman asking "Where's Manlove Bradley?" In fact, the entire sketch is the same as the sketch that we have here. The… Read More

Description:
Praha: Orbis, 1929. Hardcover. SIGNED. Sextodecimo. Patterned red cloth over boards. There are a couple of small stains on the fore-edge of the text block, and the pages are toned. Else, very attractive. In a thin card slipcase with the title and author written in pen on the spine. Signed by Bocho áková-Dittrichová in pencil on title page. With an introduction by Arne Novák, Czech literary critic and historian. Preceded by a limited edition of 50 hand-numbered copies on Ullersdorf paper and 10 signed and numbered copies on Japan paper. Z Mého D tství is the first wordless novel created by a woman. Issued in the same year as Lynd Ward's celebrated Gods' Man, it tells the story of Bocho áková-Dittrichová's provincial girlhood. Largely a series of vignettes, the woodcuts capture snatches of the quotidian rituals and terrible mysteries of youth, all penetrated with the recurring motif of rays of light. Helena Bochorakova-Dittrichova (1894-1980) was the first female wordless novelist and the… Read More
