by La Fontaine, Jean de

  • Used
  • Hardcover
Amsterdam: Chez Zacharie Chatelain, 1728. Complete in 5 parts (various paginations) with frontispiece and 242 half-page engravings by Henri Cause, many based on those of François Chauveau. There also are attractiveengraved tailpieces following many of the fables. The 5th part of the Fables is not included in many editions; so this more complete edition is quite desirable. Recently and sympathetically rebound in full leather with the original spine and front & rear panels laid down. Internally clean with only an occasional hint of foxing; small chips out of margins of 5 leaves, not affecting text or images. In all, a very nice example of this scarce book, an early, delightfully illustrated French-language presentation of La Fontaine's fables.. Early Printing. Hardcover. Collectible-Very Good. Illus. by Henri Cause. 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall. Book.

Description:
n.p.: Unpublished, 1971. The letter on Artie Shaw's personal stationery is dated May 17, 1971 and reads: "Dear Tony: I could have understood Yes, No, or even Maybe--but I cannot understand one broken appointment, one broken lunch date, and one unbroken silence ever since. Don't you think a phone call is in order? I do. What can you lose? Sincerely Artie Shaw." It is boldly signed "Artie" in black ink. Shaw was a world-renowned jazz clarinetist and band leader. Galli was a news correspondent, who later worked in advertising and was largely responsible for the AT&T slogan "Reach out and touch someone." Shaw's signature is bold and bright; the letter is generally clean and bright, but there is one 1" closed tear that does not intrude upon the text. There is a hint of faint soiling and minor wrinkling.. SIGNED. First Edition. Paper. Very Good.. 10 1/4" X 7 1/8". Manuscript.

Fossati (1706-1778) was an Italian architect who also was a very good printmaker and book illustrator. For the fables he portrayed animals realistically and used his architectural training for accurate renderings of baroque buildings.

Description:
Dublin: The Cuala Press, 1939. [1939] 46 pages. For all practical purposes, this is the first edition because all except for 4 copies of the first printing were destroyed by Yeats' wife. The book is mostly prose on a variety of topics, but it does include the first published appearance of the one-act play in verse, "Purgatory." The book is clean and attractive in the original blue wraps decorated with a front cover illustration by Jack B. Yeats. One 1 very tiny closed tear at fore-edge of front & back covers; a hint of faint tanning at edges of cover; a single spot of foxing on front cover; a tiny rust spot from a paper clip in inside front cover & half-title page. Better than it sounds, and overall a nice copy of an increasingly scarce book.. Second Edition. Paperback. Collectible-Very Good/No Dust Jacket, as Issued. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Book.

Description:
London: William S. Orr & Co., 1848. This is not a complete book--it is a single sheet containing an original antique hand-colored botanical print. Joseph Paxton was perhaps the most significant 19th century English botanist, the designer of the famed Crystal Palace, and the editor of Paxton's Magazine of Botany and Register of Flowering Plants. This print is from the 14th volume of that magazine, published in 1848. Drawn and lithographed by Samuel Holden, it is a superb brilliantly-colored example of the flowers in the magazine. The lithograph is accompanied by the original text pages explaining the origin, cultivation, and uses of the flower. The print is clean and bright, with a hint of toning of the background and the usual stab holes along the binding edge.. First Edition. Paper. Collectible-Fine. Illus. by Samuel Holden. 9" by 6 3/8". Fine Art Print.
