    Autograph Letter by LeGallienne, Richard

    [East Aurora]: The Roycrofters, Sunday. Two pages on golden colored paper stationery from The Roycrofters. 1 vols. 12mo. To "Dear 'Little Thing'," (?Eva) Written from the Roycrofters shop where he has gone to give a lecture and "I am off to read a few prose fancies to the Roycrofters by way of Evening Service. It is a beautiful place & very beautiful seems to me the spirit of happy work & brotherhood that sings all day like a bird- 'a nest of singing birds,' inside the Roycroft Shop. Last night some of us, including Hubbard, of course, spent the night in a little shanty four miles away in a hollow of the snow-white hills." The letter finishes there and is unsigned. It would seem most likely to be to a family member. Two pages on golden colored paper stationery from The Roycrofters. 1 vols. 12mo. At The Roycrofters.



    Nightmares Unhinged: Twenty Tales of Terror by Viola, Joshua,

    New. Hex Publishers LLC, 2015. PAP. Book Condition: New. Nightmares come in many forms. Some rend the veil of sleep with heart-stopping madness. Others defy sanity to leave a helpless corner of your mind twitching for release. Sometimes, hours after waking, a nightmare drifts across your memory, tainting your day with wisps of discomfort. NIGHTMARES UNHINGED reveals horror in all its mutable forms—abject to absurd—through twenty tales of terror. Contributors include Mario Acevedo, Edward Bryant, Dustin Carpenter, Sean Eads, Keith Ferrell, Warren Hammond, Jason Heller, Gary Jonas, Stephen Graham Jones, J.V. Kyle, Aaron Michael Ritchey, Jeanne C. Stein, Steve Rasnic Tem and Dean Wyant. Foreword by Steve Alten. Edited by Joshua Viola. Illustrations by Aaron Lovett.

Stein, Steve Rasnic Tem, Warren Hammond, etc.—this stellar collection of twenty nightmare-inducing short stories is appropriately titled: it’s a check-underneath-the-bed-before-you-go-to-sleep kind of anthology.” —PAUL GOAT ALLEN . 2015.

    River of Grass by Krause, Dorothy Simpson

    MA: Viewpoint Editions, 2012. Paperback. Fine. Paperback. Number 22 of 36 copies. According to noted book artist Dorothy Simpson Krause, "This homage to Marjory Stoneman Douglas (1947-1997) and her seminal book, The Everglades: River of Grass combines my images of the Everglades with historic photographs, documents, and maps. Forty miles wide and over 100 miles long this slow moving river ranges from a few inches to a few feet in depth. Only half its original size, the Everglades has been largely destroyed to meet the demands of urban and agricultural growth. The ongoing battle for restoration of the Everglades is a moral test which hopefully we will pass." The book's exquisite images evoke the beauty and mystery of the Everglades, which are "one of the unique regions of the earth, remote, never wholly known" (Marjory Douglas). Printed on Yu Kou paper, on a laser printer with letterpress overlay. Interleaved with Yu Kou light tissue guards. All of the unbound pages are housed in an envelope enclosure made from brown Lokta Oil Paper to reference a packet of documents an early settler might have carried. The closure on the envelope is a native mahogany tree seedpod with rawhide and thread tie. This book was produced while Krause was Artist-in-Residence at the Jaffe Center for Book Arts, Wimberly Library, Florida Atlantic University, and was published under the auspices of Minerva: The Press at Wimberly. In fine condition. PRI/101912.

    Luna One by Joshua Viola

    New. Hex Publishers LLC, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Forty years ago, Eddie was an astronaut poised to be one of the blessed few to walk on the Moon, but budget cuts and the shifting whims of politics denied him the only dream to bring meaning to his life. Now, he's an old man, living alone in a house full of space memorabilia, with just his resentments and a huge telescope to keep him company. Every day, gravity pulls him closer to Earth's final embrace, and the Moon seems to laugh at him. When a new mission to the Moon is announced and his application is rejected, it's just about all Eddie and his old, worn-out body can take. Is it a stroke-induced hallucination that suddenly finds Eddie rocketing to become the sole permanent resident of the Moon? Or has his wish finally, inexplicably, been granted? And don't all wishes demand a price be paid? Joshua Viola, multi-award winning author of "The Bane of Yoto" and "Blackstar," presents "Luna One," a science fiction parable in the best spirit of Rod Serling and O. Henry. . 2015. First Edition.

    A Dissertation Upon Roast Pig [WITH PROSPECTUS] by Lamb, Charles; Jones, Wilfred (Illustrator); Ho, Sang (Chinese Characters); Ransom, Will (Typography)

    Rochester, New York: The Printing House of Leo Hart, 1932. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine. Jones, Wilfred. Number 452 of 950 copies, octavo size, 48 pp., signed by illustrator Wilfred Jones. Charles Lamb (1997-1834) is perhaps best remembered today for his "Essays of Elia" and "Tales from Shakespeare" which he co-authored with his sister, Mary Lamb, to introduce Shakespeare to children; his biographer claimed that Lamb was "the most lovable figure in English literature" (per Wiki). This essay is a favorite of any gourmand who enjoys roast pig, and the humorous manner of Lamb's recounting of the mythical origins of roast pig transcends the centuries. However, in our humble opinion, Mr. Lamb's essay is overshadowed by the simply glorious illustrations by Wilfred Jones (1888-1968); fascinated by the scientific principles of color as set forth by Seurat and Césanne, he experimented with colour, becoming one of the foremost designers and illustrators of his day. His illustrations for this book are simply riotous with deep, rich colours, the illustrations being hand-coloured; with Chinese characters in red in the page margins, and the wonderful typography of Will Ransom, this work is indeed "a book designed, illustrated, and decorated to reflect the oriental tale from which this fine Essay of Elia derives." (N.B., quote from prospectus.) ***DESCRIPTION: Bound in Yamura paper boards with a vellum shelfback, chinese characters in red embossed on the front board, title in red on the back, four different delightful illustrations on each of the four endpapers (the front endpapers showing the house on fire, the rear endpapers whimsically showing a pig, napkin tied around its neck and fork in hand, leading two men by ropes), title page in red and black, two seven-line initial capital letters in red, six illustrations through the text which are hand-coloured, at both front and rear immediately next to the endpapers are double-spread illustrations; type Eve Heavy, hand-set, on Okawara paper, french-fold with the uncut bolts at the top, octavo size (8.25" tall by 6"), unpaginated with 24 leaves, limited edition of 950 copies, this no. 452, signed by the illustrator at the colophon. Loosely laid in is the (scarce) prospectus, four pages with two specimen pages on the inside, the front announcing the work and with a rendition of the first double-spread illustration, the back giving particulars of the edition, which was being offered at $7.50. In publisher's cardboard slipcase covered with gold foil paper with red geometric patterns. ***CONDITION: Volume could almost be called fine, the paper boards are clean and unrubbed, the corners are straight and also unrubbed, text block is strong and square with solid hinges, the interior is clean, the colours exceedingly bright, the only prior owner marking consisting of a tasteful bookplate with the single initial "S" which was tipped onto the front pastedown; it is now loosely laid in with a hint of residue on the front pastedown; light rubbing to the red lettering on the spine, else fine. The prospectus is very good plus, with some foxing and light general wear; the slipcase is very good, strong and sturdy, but with overall rubbing to the gold foil paper. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard shipping charge does not always cover costs; please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind book we sell. Please contact us with any questions you may have, we are here to help.
