Description:
n.p.: n.p., 1935. Very good.. Mock-epic manuscript in six cantos, offering meticulously footnoted anonymous rhyming invective against the New Deal, the Nietszschian Superman, and the unappreciative American publishing industry. This never-published satire presents an array of politico-philosophic opinions and prejudices, refined to a high degree of erudition and incomprehensibility, unified by the author's displeasure with Franklin D. Roosevelt and "Teutonism" in all its forms. Refused by two cowardly American periodicals in previous drafts, the author then turned his furious aspirations across the Atlantic, adding in several verses of explanation and entreaty. These seem to have had no effect on the hard hearts of British editors, who perhaps could not tell from invocation of "The Saxonism which took itself to be / Chief of all 'eaches' in a 'pluriverse'" whether they were being complimented or insulted. W.B.A.'s crackpottery, stuffed with classical allusions and furnished with appeals to William… Read More

Description:
New York: New American Library, 1984. First edition. Near fine in a very good plus jacket.. First printing of this Stephen King novel written under pseudonym, a tale of unyielding retribution visited upon those who mostly deserve it. THINNER was the fifth book published by Stephen King under the name Richard Bachman, and the final one to appear before his alternate identity became widely known. In spite of his dedication to maintaining the persona, "It was the beginning of the end of Richard Bachman's career. 'Thinner' was too obviously a Stephen King novel." Or, as King recalled, "The Literary Guild took 'Thinner' and I heard a comment from one of their readers that: 'This is what Stephen King would write like if Stephen King could really write'" (Brown). 8.5'' x 5.5''. Original quarter black cloth with red boards, with metallic red spine lettering. In original unclipped ($12.95) dust jacket. 309, [1] pages. Foxing/spotting to underside of jacket, not visible from front, unobtrusive. Trace… Read More

Description:
New York: The Viking Press, 1938. Near fine in near fine dust jacket.. First printing of this heartwarming story of a handsome cat's journey from the alley to a loving home - rare in a beautifully intact original jacket. Celebrated for her caricatures featured in periodicals such as VANITY FAIR and THE NEW YORKER, Peggy Bacon was noted for her refusal to "repeat herself" artistically (Taylor, 14). Nevertheless, she would often return to favorite themes in her artwork, one of which was cats. In BUTTONS, she lovingly depicts the rough-and-tumble King of the Alley Cats as he comes to realize that love can be nice, too. This title rarely found with dust jacket so whole and clean. 12'' x 9''. Original red cloth boards with pictorial onlay. Original unclipped ($2.00) red, black, and white pictorial dust jacket. Illustrated in black and white. [32] pages. Jacket with light edge chipping and mild toning, a few tiny closed tears carefully repaired to verso. Binding with a bit of toning to edges. Clean.

Description:
A Londres... Et A Paris" [Paris]: Chez M. Elmesly... Chez les Freres Debure, Quai des Augustins, 1777. One of two editions first published in 1777, no priority established. Very good.. First edition of this provocative thesis written by a French astronomer in response to Voltaire, arguing that modern civilization owes its scientific roots to Asia rather than Europe. Called "The French Revolution's Benjamin Franklin, " Bailly made a name for himself as a historian of science in the years leading up to the Revolution. In the course of researching his HISTORY OF ANCIENT ASTRONOMY (1775), he became convinced that many of the most important astronomical innovations occurred in India, ahead of the Greeks. "It was Indian astronomy above all, with its useful tables, that fascinated academicians... The first exact knowledge informed Europeans had about India concerned the traditions of mathematical astronomy." (Peiffer in Dauben and Scriba, 15). In this work, Bailly first wonders whether the Indian… Read More

Baldwin's epic and ambitious late novel, written from the author's house in St-Paul-de-Vence, works toward a glimpse of a "utopian domestic space occupied by two black men in love" (Zaborowska) in its final pages: a much longed for, hard-won, and briefly held space for work and happiness. "It was beautiful to watch them; freedom is an extraordinary spectacle." 9.25'' x 6''. Original burgundy cloth boards, gilt-lettered spine and front board.

Description:
New York: The Dial Press, 1972. Fine in near fine jacket.. First edition of Baldwin's fourth nonfiction book, a personal, philosophical, and political memoir. NO NAME covers from his childhood in Harlem to his life and work in the postwar '40s; to the turn of the McCarthyite '50s into the turbulent '60s, "when many of my friends vanished into the hills, or into anarchies called communes, or into orgone boxes." Included are the years when Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Medgar Evers, and others he knew and loved died brutal deaths, and the decade, along with the mythic self-delusion of the American people, "who are at present among the most dishonorable and violent people in the world," collapsed in on itself. By 1972, familiarity with Baldwin's rhetorical style had bred contempt among many critics once happy to be enlightened, now furious to be reminded. This reaction itself, Mel Watkins observed, "may very well be a more serious indictment against ourselves, a palpable indication of our own… Read More

Dell mass-market paperback edition of Baldwin's second novel, a story of love and and fear that first revealed Baldwin's full capacities as "the greatest American prose stylist of his generation" (Tóibín). GIOVANNI'S ROOM is one of the great twentieth century studies of masculinity and sexual identity; in his creation of an expatriate American whose desires are weighted with ambivalence, shame, and anger, Baldwin proves himself a worthy successor to Henry James. The novel, Baldwin said in a 1980 interview, tells "what happens if you are so afraid that you finally cannot love anybody. That's what the book is about." 6.5'' x 4.25''. Original color pictorial wrappers, Dell 2881, cover price 60c. All edges stained green. 224 pages. Light edgewear, primarily at spine ends. Leaves toned.
