Description:
London: John Murray, 1816. First edition of the final novel published during Austen's lifetime. Small octavo, 3 volumes, bound in contemporary three quarters leather, gilt titles to the spine. With the publisher's advertisements on the verso of the last page of Vol. III. In near fine condition with light toning. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional example, most rare and desirable in this condition and in a contemporary binding. After many publishing delays, Austen decided to self-finance the publication of Emma, paying printer John Murray a 10% commission and retaining the remaining profits. "Emma was the fourth and last novel which Jane Austen published in her lifetime. When it was written the author was at the height of her powers, and she wrote the book rapidly and surely, encouraged by the success of her previous novels to express herself with confidence in the way peculiarly her own" (Rosenbach 29:24). "Jane Austen's fourth novel has a profundity… Read More

Description:
Turin: Stamperia Reale, 1837. First edition. Hardcover. A LANDMARK FOR THE HISTORY OF ITALIAN SCIENCE" (MORSELLI). First edition of one of the great rarities of chemistry, and especially rare in the original printed wrappers as here. This monumental work is the only large-scale publication of Avogadro (1776-1856), famous for his eponymous hypothesis (1811) that equal volumes of all gases at the same pressure and temperature contain the same number of molecules. "Avogadro also wrote a large book [offered here] which was read with interest by Faraday and contains an account of his hypothesis" (Partington, History of Chemistry IV, p. 216). Although his molecular hypothesis is widely considered to be Italy's great contribution to chemistry in the 19th century, his 1811 memoir was largely ignored for another half century, partly because it was published first in Italian (when Italy was at the periphery of scientific research) and subsequently only in minor French, German and English scientific journals.… Read More

Description:
Berlin (i.e., Paris): np, 1754. First edition. A PIONEERING WORK ON GENETICS. First edition in French, the earliest obtainable, and very rare, of Maupertuis' remarkable original work on the nature of heredity and evolution, which marks him out, in the words of evolutionary biologist Ernst Mayr (The Growth of Biological Thought, p. 328), as "one of the pioneers of genetics". "Buffon saw clearly that both father and mother made a genetic contribution, but it was P. M. de Maupertuis, more than anyone else, who developed a theory of inheritance that can be considered as foreshadowing later developments. Maupertuis espoused a theory of pangenesis, based on the thought of Anaxagoras and Hippocrates, postulating particles ('elements') from both father and mother as responsible for the characters of the offspring. Most components of his theory can be found in the later theories of Naudin, Darwin and Galton" (ibid., p. 646). This is "one of his most significant works, later called Système de la nature.

Description:
London: Printed for T. Egerton 1814, 1814. First edition. Three volumes. 12mo. 167x100mm. pp. (i), 360; (i), 294; (i), 354. Lacking half-titles. Twentieth-century green half-calf, marbled boards, spines ruled in gilt with two burgundy labels lettered in gilt. Internally near fine with very occasional slight staining on a few leaves, not affecting the text. Repaired tear to final leaf of volume. This is a very attractive, handsomely rebound set of Jane Austen's third novel. Often regarded as her most serious, and certainly her darkest and most moralistic novel, Mansfield Park met with immediate success and this first edition sold out within six months, although no more than 1,250 were thought to have been printed. John Murray (who published the second edition in 1816) "expressed astonishment that so small an edition of such a work should have been sent out into the world". Indeed. Gilson. A6.

Description:
Oxford: Printed for the author and sold by C. S. Rann [others in later parts], 1789-90. Who created Sophia Sentiment? First edition, possibly Jane Austen's first appearance in print. This scarce periodical was written by James and Henry Austen while they were at Oxford. Some scholars have suggested that in issue number 9, the letter signed "Sophia Sentiment" was the work of their sister Jane when she was 14. Although Gilson does not include this work in his Bibliography, there is a strong case that the work was written by Jane Austen. According to the British Library, "critics such as Paula Byrne have noted that there are various correspondences between the letter and Jane Austen's juvenilia. Her early, epistolary novel Love and Freindship [sic], for example, has two heroines quite as shallow as Sophia. But other critics, such as Kathryn Sutherland and Claire Tomalin, find it unlikely that Austen would have written a letter so critical of women's reading choices. They suggest that Sophia Sentiment's… Read More

Description:
New York: Vincent FitzGerald and Company, 1990. First Edition thus, one of 50 copies, all on BFK Rives paper, all signed by Turner and Feingold. Page size: 11 x 13". Bound: collaged Japanese grey paper over boards, housed in black silk box, fine. Illustrating Kafka's 15 short fictions are 25 photogravures, a delicate process little used since the 19th century. The process, in which original prints are made from a photograph etched by ultraviolet light on an engraved copper plate, is used in an innovative contemporary way to reflect the great Modernist author's distinctive 20th century sensibility, with its inexplicable fears and haunting sense of helpless isolation. Rather than standing aloof from the text, Turner's images enfold it, combat it, or weave their way across it. Gatefold pages, aquatints adding almost subliminal touches of colors, and collages employing a variety of fine papers in various textures and colors, are among the techniques which add to the effect of a visual environment… Read More

Paris: Manuel Bruker, 1954. First Limited Edition. Wraps. Very Good. No. 12 of 20. With a folio of three original ink drawings signed by Vertes, a folio of 10 engravings that were rejected for use in the book proper, and a suite of all the engravings used in the book. This copy is also inscribed by the artist to the collector/owner, which is not something called for in the limitation. 204 pp. Stylistically, the Hungarian-American Vertes brought a loose, near-abstraction sensibility to what nonetheless remained lucidly representational art. He executed his images with a spare economy while keeping his lines fluid and flowing. At times his output could look slapdash and improvisational; this effect, though, splendidly captured the emphemeral moment in an ever-changing scene, and we can sense easily movement and motion. Vertes was a modernist very much of his time and place. His was an oeuvre that dared to please the average man, and thus his work decorate such places as the lobby of the… Read More

This is the first edition, first printing, finely bound in full maroon Morocco goatskin, hued sympathetically to the publisherÂ’s original dark red cloth.
