Description:
Cleveland and New York: The World Syndicate Publishing Co, 1929. Very good.. First printing of this giant, colorful ABC and counting book, featuring a number of unexpected animals. B is for bear, M is for monkey, and X is, of course, for xeri. This oversized alphabet book with Harrison Cady-esque illustrations makes some fascinating choices when it comes to the animal models for each letter - O is for owl, sure, but Q is for... "queer ones" that "they can't capture to put in the zoo"? C should have been for camp. 14.5'' x 9.75''. Original stiff color pictorial wrapper. Illustrated in color. [16] pages. Wrapper with light edgewear, some wear and infills to spine; several repairs to lower edges. Leaves with tiny closed tears to lower edges, carefully repaired with tape or glue; each gutter reinforced with tape. Colors bright.

Description:
New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1982. Near fine in near fine dust jacket.. Signed later printing of the first book in the series that made Sue Grafton a household name, introducing PI Kinsey Millhone. The title for the first book in Grafton's famous Alphabet Series was inspired by reading THE GASHLYCRUMB TINIES, a detail characteristic of the black levity that helped made the series so popular. Debuting in the same year as her fellow icon, Sara Paretsky's V.I. Warshawski, Kinsey Millhone was a detective in the classic noir tradition who upended the classic noir clichés, written by an author in conscious dialogue with her genre: "The conclusion of "A Is For Alibi" is deadly serious. It's an ingenious feminist rewriting of one of the most hateful mystery endings of all time, Mickey Spillane's misogynist masterpiece I, THE JURY" (Corrigan). 8'' x 5.25''. Original red boards. Original unclipped ($21.95) color pictorial dust jacket. 276 pages. Signed by Grafton to title page. Jacket with a touch of… Read More

Description:
New York: Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1982. First printing. Fine in fine jacket.. Signed first edition, a gorgeous copy, introducing Grafton's beloved Kinsey Millhone, a hard-up detective in Southern California. The title for the first book in Grafton's famous Alphabet Series was inspired by reading THE GASHLYCRUMB TINIES, a detail that captures the tone of black levity that has partly made the series so popular. Kinsey Millhone bears many characteristics of a classic noir detective, but with a feminist update: she would become a model for many heroines to come in the following decades, not only in mystery but in urban fantasy and beyond. Really a great copy, desirable signed. 8'' x 5.25''. Original grey paper boards, metallic red-lettered spine. In original unclipped ($12.95) color pictorial dust jacket. [10], 274, [2] pages. Signed by Grafton in black felt pen on title page.

New York: Coward McCann, 1933. Fine in very good jacket.. Scarce first edition of this magnificent ABC and Newbery Honor book, an unusually beautiful copy.

The colophon reads: "The illustrations in this book are original lithographs drawn by Wanda Gág. Printed in lithography... on paper made especially for this edition." Probably due to its size, not many collectible copies of this title have survived over the years, particularly in such condition. 12'' x 10''. Original pictorial boards. In original color pictorial dust jacket. Jacket with old tape repairs.

London: Hamish Hamilton, 1972. Near fine in very good plus dust jacket.. Signed first UK edition of this collection of fairy tale favorites and lesser-known Brothers Grimm stories, illustrated by award-winning artist Nonny Hogrogian. Nonny Hogrogian, an Armenian-American from a family of artists, started her bibliographic career as a book designer for publisher Thomas Y. Crowell. She worked as an art director for several other publishers, until she earned her first Caldecott Medal for ALWAYS ROOM FOR ONE MORE in 1965 - the success inspired her to become a full-time illustrator. It was a good choice: she earned another Caldecott Medal in 1972, and a Caldecott Honor in 1977. Many of her works incorporate aesthetics and stories from her Armenian heritage. 9'' x 7''. Original cloth boards. Original price-clipped color pictorial dust jacket. Illustrated in black and white. 118 pages. Signed by Hogrogian to title page. Jacket with small price sticker to front flap.
