Description:
New York: Will H. Coleman, 1885. Very good.. First edition of the first published book on this culinary tradition, "an invaluable record of the history of Creole food, New Orleans, and Louisiana" (John T. Edge). Subtitled "a collection of culinary recipes from leading chefs and noted Creole housewives, who have made New Orleans famous for its cuisine," this book includes some of the earliest printed recipes for classics of the area's food, including jambalaya and gumbos, with characteristic ingredients like okra and crayfish. But even more, it was an important cultural document of the vibrantly heterogeneous culture: "In LA CUISINE CREOLE Hearn located food at the core of a people's culture. Its publication marked the beginning of a wave of nineteenth-century cookery books that preserved and popularized singular cuisines in their historical place" (Bruce Kraig). 7.25'' x 5.5''. Original olive-green pictorial cloth stamped in black and gilt with serving dish design and ornamental crab and lobster.… Read More

Description:
Paris: Hachette, 1954. First edition. Fine.. First printing of this beautiful Babar entry, in which the animals celebrate the founding of the elephant town Célesteville, an exceptionally beautiful copy. The Babar series has delighted generations of young children around the world. The de Brunhoffs' simple and stylish art is widely praised for being "comprehensible and entertaining even if one didn't know the language" (Bader, 547). The Babar books set the tempo for all picture books that followed: their "large format, fine litho-printing and hand-written text" fueled the "visual triumph" (Whalley and Chester, 189) of the picture book in the 1930s. The popularity of the Babar books among young readers means that many copies survive in, shall we say, a well-loved state. LA FÊTE DE CÉLESTEVILLE is quite difficult to obtain in fine condition as here. 14.25'' x 10.25''. Original yellow cloth-backed pictorial boards. Color pictorial endpapers of elephants against a blue background. Illustrated in… Read More

Description:
Amsterdam: Chez L'Honoré & Chatelain, 1720. First edition thus. Very good plus.. First printing of the first French edition of ROBINSON CRUSOE, one of the first ever translations of the book that has more translations than any work except the Bible. ROBINSON CRUSOE's reputation as one of the most famous books in the world began immediately after publication with the printing of French, German, and Dutch translations in 1720. This edition is prized not only as the earliest French translation, but also for its illustrations: it is the first edition to be illustrated with more than a frontispiece and maps. It contains 6 fine copperplate engravings, as well as a wonderful frontispiece portrait of Crusoe by the renowned engraver Bernard Picart, and the highly sought folding map by Hermann Moll (which didn't appear until the fourth edition in English). This is volume one (as in English, the book was not published all at once). Two more volumes of the later parts of ROBINSON CRUSOE followed the next… Read More

Description:
New York: The Baker & Taylor Company, 1906. First edition. Very good plus.. Unusually charming (and sometimes slightly surreal) book of ideas for toys made from everyday objects and food, accompanied by stories and poems. Features ideas for dolls made out of all sorts of fruits, vegetables, fibers, and household objects, as well as animal favorites like the Lemon Pig.

Overall, a clever production and interesting Progressive Era example of the genre of children's activity books using common items. 9'' x 6.75''. Original tan publisher's cloth binding with black, green, and red stamped titles and designs.

Description:
Indianapolis: The Bobbs-Merrill Company, 1910. Very good plus.. First Christy-illustrated edition of this beloved poem of the Highlands, populated by beautiful "Christy Girls" - very scarce signed. Howard Chandler Christy's art of elegant, attractive women led to him being hailed as the successor to Charles Dana Gibson, and the "Gibson Girl" of the 1890s and 1900s was soon replaced by the "Christy Girl" of the 1910s. Christy would go on to illustrate a number of famous WWI recruitment posters, including the iconic 1917 "Gee I wish I were a Man, I'd Join the Navy." THE LADY OF THE LAKE was published just as the popularity of the Christy Girl was approaching its zenith, and showcases the artist's talent for depicting beautiful women (and men). Copies signed by him are very scarce. 11.5'' x 8.75''. Publisher's green cloth pictorial boards with gilt, yellow, and green stamping. Illustrated in black, white, and blue with color frontispiece and title page, with 12 color plates. [112] pages. Signed by… Read More

First edition of this psychedelic story of Orange Boy's efforts to "cool his head," featuring several illustrations that incorporate Cockerell marbled paper. Peter Max's colorful and cosmic art style perfectly encapsulates the visual psychedelia of the 1960s and '70s. His illustrations both contrast with and compliment the flowing patterns of Douglas Cockerell and Son's marbled designs, their bold, repetitive shapes acting as perfect backgrounds for Max's fantastical figures. A particularly attractive melding of traditional book aesthetics with contemporary art. 11'' x 8.5''. Original glossy color pictorial boards. Marbled endpapers with playful characters. Illustrated in color. [16] leaves. Boards with a touch of rubbing and soil, mild bumping to spine ends. Leaves clean, illustrations bright.
