Description:
London & New York: Heinemann & Doubleday, 1910. Very good plus.. Signed limited edition, one of 1150 numbered copies (this one of 150 for the US market) signed by Rackham, of the first volume in Rackham's version of Wagner's Ring Cycle. An ambitious and radical opera based on Norse mythology, Wagner's Ring Cycle captured the imagination of Europe from its first performance in 1876. Rackham's rich and brooding interpretations of Wagner's masterwork were beloved by the likes of C.S. Lewis, who called them "the very music made visible." Although already established as an illustrator of classic fairytales and books for children, Rackham designed this work for a mature audience; among the illustrations are a number of graceful female nudes. A lovely, clean copy. 11'' x 9''. Original full gilt-stamped vellum, renewed silk ties. Illustrated by Rackham with 34 magnificent tipped-in color plates and 14 black-and-white images. Typical offsetting to leaves facing brown heavy stock paper. Some rubbing on spine… Read More

Description:
London: John F. Shaw, 1915. Near fine.. A remarkably beautiful copy of this rare Wain title. Known as "The Edwardian Cat Artist That Went Mad," Wain was once "the most famous cat artist on earth" (Haining). His work in conceiving an entire Catland inspired the creators of Felix the Cat and even Mickey Mouse; Haining notes that Wain also "played a major part in making the cat the most popular of all domestic pets." 9.5'' x 7''. Original quarter cloth, flexible card covers with pictorial paste-on and black-printed ornamental border. Illustrated by Wain with 4 mounted color plates on dark grey paper, 3 full-page black-and-white plates, 4 half-page black-and-white images and 10 smaller black-and-white illustrations in-text.

Description:
Dundee and London: Valentine & Sons, Ltd, 1908. Very good.. First edition of this unusual Louis Wain title, a set of 10 postcards to be colored by a child - remarkably unused. Best known for his art of Catland, Louis Wain was far more than just an artist of felines. THE ZOOLAND POSTCARD PAINTING BOOK finds Wain applying his gently satyrical humanized style to elephants, bears, monkeys, hippos, and to big cats: a lion and a pair of tigers, in whose faces glimpses of Catland can be seen. Wain provided a coloring guide for young artists on the rear wrapper, though one wonders how closely a child would be able to emulate his handiwork. This title is also testament to the marketability of Wain's art in the pre-WWI UK - Wain lent his illustrations to numerous books, annuals, and even housewear. ZOOLAND, designed to be enjoyed and broken up, is quite a rare Wain item in any condition, let alone retaining all 10 of its postcards. 5'' x 7''. Original stiff color pictorial wrappers. Illustrated in black and… Read More

Description:
(Goole, East Yorkshire): The Chevington Press, 2006. First edition. Fine in original clamshell.. Striking limited edition artist's book that contrasts the violent world of prize fighting with the measured, clean format of a fine press book. Pulling from scanty historical sources about the identities of prize fighters in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, D. R. Wakefield presents brief biographical vignettes of 14 Jewish prize fighters during a 55-year period. Through the personal stories of the fighters, Wakefield also throws some light on the culture of prize fighting in the period; and through their heavy, deeply-embossed portraits, he almost simulates the impact of a blow. An enthralling production. 15'' x 10.5''. Original red quarter-goatskin binding with paste paper boards, paper title label to front board and gilt spine lettering. Etched frontispiece with 14 etched portraits and a number of smaller etchings throughout. [22] leaves. Signed by Wakefield to colophon, numbered 14 of 55. In… Read More

Description:
San Diego: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1983. First edition (stated). Very good plus in very good plus dust jacket.. Signed first printing of this collection of essays by Alice Walker, including a reflection on writing THE COLOR PURPLE. Feminist and civil rights activist Alice Walker is perhaps best known for her novel THE COLOR PURPLE, but her oeuvre is far more vast. Among the essays included here are her notable biographical explorations of Zora Neale Hurston, reflections on the life of Martin Luther King Jr., and musings on writing as a Black woman. Another essay, "To the Editors of Ms. Magazine," offers a window into her views on intersectional feminism before she became involved in anti-Semitic conspiracy theories in the 21st century: "The black person who honestly believes 'being anti-Semitic is one way blacks can buy into American life,' has the perception of a flea" (354). The variety of content in IN SEARCH OF OUR MOTHERS' GARDENS makes it an appealing gift, which it was in its year of… Read More
