Description:
Paris: Les Éditions de l'Élan, 1948. Very good plus.. Uncommon and stylish French edition of the ur-Gothic novel, with the finest paperback cover illustration ever offered to Ann Radcliffe in any language. For reasons best known to themselves, the US paperback publishing houses which frantically dredged up and reprinted any proto-gothic, semi-gothic, quasi-gothic, and not a few Not Gothic classics throughout the '60s and early '70s neglected to refurbish and re-issue Radcliffe (or Lewis) in the same style. Bram Stoker, yes; Lady Caroline Lamb, yes; Ann Radcliffe, no. For an excellent modern Udolpho that looks well on the bookshelf and better in the hand, one must go to France, which did and does very well by English authors in translation. Stylish, striking, and quite unlike the pulp covers familiar to an Anglophone readership. 8.5'' x 5.5''. Translated into French and with a historical introduction by G. Charbonnier and A. Frédérique. Series "Les Grands Romans Étrangers". Original printed… Read More

Paris: Shakespeare and Company, 1927. Very good plus.. Ninth printing of James Joyce's masterpiece, one of the great works of literature in English. ULYSSES first saw print in the modernist literary magazine THE LITTLE REVIEW, edited by Margaret Anderson and Jane Heap. Midway through their serialization, issues of the magazine were seized and the editors were brought to trial in the fall of 1920. When they were convicted, ULYSSES was abandoned, only about half of it published. This disaster led to the now iconic publication of the book by Sylvia Beach at Shakespeare & Company, of which this copy is a ninth printing. 8'' x 6.25''. Later blue cloth boards. 736 pages. Leaves with a touch of toning, light edgewear. Firm.

New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1935. First edition thus. Very good plus in a very good slipcase.. The iconic modernist book, signed by Matisse - one of the great editions of one of the great books. Joyce's masterpiece, in the deluxe edition published after the 1933 landmark ruling in the case of United States v. One Book Called Ulysses. Eleven years after the book's initial publication, a US court affirmed that in the matter of obscenity, One Book Called Ulysses had soundly defeated the United States, and immediately thereafter, Limited Editions Club founder George Macy began to plan what would be a monumental achievement: a landmark among Matisse's livres d'artiste, reproducing his preparatory drawings alongside the final soft-ground etchings; the only illustrated ULYSSES with an introduction that Joyce allowed to be published; and the most accurate text of the novel published in the US until 1961. In the early days of the project, believing that the artist "[knew] the French translation… Read More

Description:
New York: Octagon Books, 1975. Fine.. First printing of this sizable reproduction of the original notebooks in which James Joyce wrote his masterwork. ULYSSES first saw print in part through the modernist literary magazine THE LITTLE REVIEW, edited by Margaret Anderson and Jane Heap. Midway through their serialization, issues of the magazine were seized and the editors were brought to trial in the fall of 1920. When they were convicted, ULYSSES was abandoned, only about half of it published. This disaster led to the now iconic publication of the book by Sylvia Beach at Shakespeare & Company in Paris. This facsimile of Joyce's various notebooks containing the first drafts of the story is a fascinating look at his writing process. The third volume, comparing the changes between the notebooks and the first edition, is particularly enlightening. 3 volumes, 11'' x 8.5''. Original blue cloth boards with white lettering. Unpaginated. In original white slipcase. Slipcase with a hint of edgewear. Sharp.

In a very French take on the moon voyage, the climax of activity is baking moon-themed treats. After little moon creatures destroy their balloon, the Mistress of the Moon sends them home in a parachute. The vividly stylized illustrations pair with minimalist sentences with surprising storytelling force. OCLC locates only one institutional holding (the BnF). 12'' x 9.5''. Original color pictorial wrappers. Illustrated in color on every page, including versos of wrappers. Text in French. [8] pages. Spine repaired; covers dusty and soiled around the margins.

Description:
New York: D. Appleton, 1881. First issue. Very good.. First edition of the first extensive printed record of the tales of Brer Rabbit and other oral traditions kept by enslaved African Americans before emancipation, this copy with an owner's Christmas gift inscription dated 1880. Georgia-born white journalist Harris sought to document the cultural history of African Americans in his Uncle Remus project, and with his success "a vibrant storytelling culture for adults began its long migration from campfires and slave cabins into the nursery" (Gates & Tatar). Harris painted the plantation life of enslaved people as idyllic, and his collection has depicted, created, and circulated racist stereotypes of African Americans. As complicated as such a legacy is, the collection also acts as a printed record of supreme importance for African-American oral traditions. Robert Bone argues that "[t]o neglect the Brer Rabbit tales because a white man was the first to write them down is to betray the black man's… Read More

Boston / Cleveland, Ohio: John P. Jewett & Company / Jewett, Proctor & Worthington, 1852. First printing. Very good plus.. First edition of arguably the most influential novel in US history, in the scarce publisher's extra gilt binding. Well educated in a large, abolitionist family, Stowe was already involved in anti-slavery activities by her early 20s, including participation in the Underground Railroad. With the passage of the Fugitive Slave Act in 1850, the "number of kidnappings and forcible re-enslavements of black people was growing almost daily" (Hedrick, 205), and Stowe chafed at the tepid response of those around her: "You don't know how my heart burns within me at the blindness and obtuseness of good people on so very simple a point of morality as this [...] I feel as if my heart would burn itself out in grief and shame that such things are" (1 Feb 1851 letter to Henry Ward Beecher, quoted in Hedrick, 204-5).

Description:
New York: The Macmillan Company, 1938. Near fine in very good plus jacket.. First US edition of Simpson's historical gothic, her second novel adapted for the screen by Alfred Hitchcock. Simpson was a member of the Detection Club along with Dorothy Sayers, Agatha Christie, Baroness Orczy, and a host of lesser lights, as well as the founder of the Oxford Women's Dramatic Society; a notable early work, ENTER SIR JOHN, joined the two worlds of theatre and murder and was the first of her novels to be filmed by Hitchcock, as MURDER! (1930). UNDER CAPRICORN was the second, eliciting wildly varied reactions. The film was a box-office failure, starring Ingrid Bergman and suffering the repercussions of her contemporary scandal; though derided by critics disappointed to find a guilt-ridden gothic romance of colonial Australia where they expected a thriller, it was also praised by Cahiers du Cinema as one of Hitchcock's best. The novel, like the film, is most interested not in the immediacy of murder, but in… Read More
