Description:
New-York: Leavitt & Allen, 1856. Very good.. Later issue of this illustrated chapbook collection of short stories, including a story of Andrew Jackson during his military years, published as the Civil War loomed. Among the material in THE TROUBADOUR focused on everyday activities (a girl learns the importance of practicing the piano, a boy flies a kite) are a passages about Holland and Mexico City, as well as a description of the work of the US Mint and, interestingly, a story about one of Andrew Jackson's military campaigns. As Civil War grew closer on the horizon in the 1850s, some looked to Jackson as a figure to emulate: "[h]e was famous for preserving the Union in the 1830s," notes NPR's Steve Inskeep, and he "insisted that federal law reigned supreme." Though Jackson, a slaveholder who "never favored abolition" seemed an unlikely hero for the Union cause, Abraham Lincoln kept the former president's portrait on his wall through the Civil War (Parks). This issue of THE TROUBADOUR is uncommon… Read More

Description:
New York: The Monacelli Press, 2005. First edition. Fine in near fine dust jacket.. Inscribed first printing of this stylish volume on the life and work of the prolific Hamptons architect, lauded for his Modernist designs and use of natural materials. Norman Jaffe's striking architecture speaks for itself, but his personal life is shrouded in an air of darkness and mystery: he disappeared swimming one morning in 1993, leaving behind a "lingering sense of unfinished business" (introduction). This is the first monograph on his productive career. 11'' x 9''. Original black cloth boards. Original unclipped (no price) color pictorial dust jacket. Illustrated in color and black and white. 240 pages. Inscribed by Gordon to half-title page, "To André with / best regards, / Alastair Gordon / 3/25/08." Jacket with a hint of sunning to spine, tiny closed tear to upper corner of front flap. Sharp.

Description:
(Lawrence, KS): (Bill James), 1978. First printing. Very good plus.. Rare first edition of the book that changed baseball - Bill James's second BASEBALL ANNUAL, one of just 250 copies. In 1977 when James published the first installment in his long-running series of Abstracts, he would have seemed an unlikely candidate to change the very game he was writing about. A worker at a pork and beans factory, James photo-copied a small edition of (the cover proclaimed) "STATISTICAL INFORMATION THAT YOU JUST CAN'T FIND ANYWHERE ELSE." He offered them for sale via the classified ads of THE SPORTING NEWS, and sold only about 75 copies. Of this seemingly inauspicious beginning, Michael Lewis would later write: "[H]ad he left off writing in 1977, James would have been dismissed as just another crank [...] It didn't occur to him to be disappointed by the sale of seventy-five copies; he was encouraged [...] In 1978, James came out with a second book [...] Word had spread this time: 250 people bought a copy [...]… Read More

Description:
London: Macmillan and Co., Limited, 1910. Very good.. Deluxe large paper edition, limited to 500 copies, featuring Japanese folk tales gathered by a Tokyo-born British woman. Grace James was the daughter of a British Naval officer born in Tokyo while her father was stationed there. She grew up in Japan until age 12; in the introductory note, James explains that many of the tales in this book are "relics of childish days, originally heard from the lips of a school-fellow or a nurse." James also drew on traditional sources like the Kojiki ("Record of Ancient Matters"), a central work for ancient Japanese mythology. This work is a remarkable example of the influence of japonisme in early 20th-century English book production. Golden Age artist Goble was Macmillan's favored illustrator for their gift books, many of which were deluxe reprints of classic fairy tales similar to this one. Quarto. 11'' x 8.5''. Original full gilt-stamped vellum, original yellow silk ties. Top edge gilt, other edges uncut.… Read More
