Description:
Richmond: Published by Leonard & Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press, 1922. First printing. Very good.. First edition of this early novel grappling with the personal traumas of World War I, Woolf's first to experiment with modernist techniques that would become central to her style. A novel of grief that weaves complex inner lives for its characters, based in part on the death of Woolf's brother. The life of the title character, who died in World War I, is described in fragmentary sequences "so that the reader experiences the same problem faced by Jacob's survivors - how to piece together his life" (Lewis 112). Woolf's short story collection MONDAY OR TUESDAY (1919) also toys with stream of consciousness and other modernist techniques, but JACOB'S ROOM was the first novel in which she began working through these innovations. One of only 1200 copies printed, this in its unrestored original state. Octavo. 7.5'' x 5''. Original orange cloth, printed paper spine label. Fore-edge and bottom edge uncut.… Read More

Description:
New York: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 1982. Fine in fine jacket.. Inscribed first printing of this picture book that "has drawn freely on the themes of black American folklore," famously objected to in a letter to the publisher signed by 14 children's librarians for its depiction of African American stereotypes. This title garnered a number of positive reviews before librarians across the country banded together to object the book. In the letter sent to the publisher, Elizabeth Huntoon said that they "felt that the book's interpretation of a Black heaven would offend many people and that it reinforced many stereotypes which are not offset by a wealth of children's literature portraying the Black experience" (quoted in Bridgman; by 1982 only two books by Black authors had received a Newbery Medal). The decision of many librarians not to purchase the book for their systems upset the publisher, who felt the choice was "arbitrary"; these librarians and others countered that curation was a critical aspect… Read More

Description:
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1961. First issue. Near fine in very good plus jacket.. Signed first edition of one of Dahl's best children's books: characteristically bizarre, wicked, and heart-warming. When Dahl published his first book for children with Disney, GREMLINS (1943), he believed it was a happy one-off and focused instead on developing his career as a writer for adults. Nearly two decades later, Dahl published JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH as his second children's book, finally moving into the field where his writing would develop into a powerful legacy. The darkness of Dahl's worlds for children have often been objected to by adults - this book regularly features on lists of banned or challenged books in American libraries - but for many children, it is the spark of fantasy within bleak settings that appeals to the imagination without becoming saccharine: Tim Burton famously told Dahl's widow he wanted to turn JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH into a film because "it's the only book that ever gave me… Read More

Description:
London: George Allen & Unwin, 1967. First printing. Near fine.. First UK edition of Dahl's escapist fruit adventure - a beautiful copy. Originally published in the U.S. in 1961 and newly illustrated by Simeon for this first British edition, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH was described in Allen & Unwin's foreword as Dahl's "first book for children" (somewhat accurate, if one disregards his earlier THE GREMLINS (1943), originally intended as the basis for a Disney film). Dahl's genius as a writer for all age groups lies in his refusal to strip his children's books of the pure, unadulterated nastiness at the core of his most memorable adult short stories; sex is absent, but the vulgarity and meanness in the darkness of the human heart is, if anything, greater and more fearsome here: for Dahl, hatred of injustice is born early in a child's spirit and festers until it finds some awful, Aunt-crushing catharsis. The gruesome revenges taken by the weak upon the strong are correspondingly satisfying, unfettered… Read More

Description:
London: Enitharmon Editions, 2003. About fine.. Signed limited edition of Rego's intense and brutal suite of lithographs in dialogue with Brontë's JANE EYRE. Rego's JANE EYRE series is narrower in emotional range than its source inspiration, but fully its equal in depth. Her lithographs thrash with the furious, tortured physicality of women weighed down by pain and humiliation and confinement, the element of fire nearly smothered in wet wool and cold earth. The Portuguese-born artist reported reading JANE EYRE for the first time as an adult, and no childhood nostalgia tempers her vision. Jane Eyre herself appears as she is, not as she seems: a massive presence, rather than the fey fairy elf of Rochester's pick-up lines or the meek mouse of conventional illustration. "I don't believe in the existence of little mice," Rego affirmed to The Observer in 2002. "Every mouse has intestines and teeth and they are terrifying, those little mice. Jane Eyre is actually a bit of a rat." 14.5'' x 10''. Original… Read More
