Lucerne: Faksimile Verlag, 1993. No. 195 OF 980 COPIES. 206 x 168 mm. (8 1/8 x 6 5/8"). Four volumes (each with separate volume of commentary in English and German). With commentary by Mark L. Evans. No. 195 OF 980 COPIES. Publisher's red velvet, flat spine, two silver gilt clasps, each volume housed in a matching velvet box with the commentary volume (in paper wrapper), gilt coat of arms on upper cover of each box. With 138 borders and 48 miniatures by Birago, and two borders and 16 miniatures by Horenbout. In mint condition. This is a very fine facsimile of a Renaissance Book of Hours with an intriguing history and decoration by two different and distinguished illuminators, one Italian and the other Flemish. The Sforza Hours was originally commissioned from Italian miniaturist Giovan Pietro Birago (fl. 1471-1513) by Bona Sforza, wife of the Duke of Milan, around 1490. A surviving letter from Birago to an unknown nobleman complains that part of the manuscript was stolen by an unscrupulous "Fra… Read more

New York: Random House, 1957. FIRST EDITION. No. 438 OF 450 SIGNED COPIES. 205 x 130 mm. (8 x 5 1/8"). 5 p.l., 371 pp. FIRST EDITION. No. 438 OF 450 SIGNED COPIES. FINE CONTEMPORARY BROWN CRUSHED MOROCCO, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with filigree cornerpieces, gilt titling, turn-ins with decorative gilt roll, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Petersen A34c. Just a breath of wear to the binding, but a near-mint copy, pristine internally. This is a desirable signed copy of the second volume in Faukner's "Snopes" trilogy, a work written near the end of his storied career. As ANB observes, "Faulkner drew on the history of his region, its brief rise and its rapid fall; on its rich oral traditions, "the rag-tag and bob-ends of old tales and talkings" (as he called them in 'Absalom, Absalom!') that he had begun gathering from the air in his seemingly misspent boyhood and youth; on its customs, mores, folkways, and dialects; and even on its vegetation, geography, and wildlife.

New York: R. Worthington, 1881. 184 x 127 mm. (7 1/4 x 5"). Single column, 38 lines of text and headline in roman type. One leaf with slight corner discoloration from an earlier repair (not affecting text), others with a short closed marginal tear or minor smudging, other trivial imperfections, but excellent, fresh specimens. For some, the beautiful language of the King James Version of the Bible can never be surpassed, but there are those who crave to read Scripture in plain English. In light of this, the convocation of Canterbury called for a modernized revision of the English Bible in 1870, the first since the King James Version had become the standard edition. The Revised Version was released in 1881, and our leaves come from one of the many editions issued to meet the high demand for copies: between May and December 1881, more than 2,000,000 copies were sold in London, and around 400,000 in New York.

London: John Lane, The Bodley Head Limited, 1924. 240 x 150 mm. (9 3/8 x 5 7/8). xlv, [i], 231, [1] (blank) pp. Attractive full red polished calf by Bayntun Riviere (stamp-signed in ink on front free endpaper), gilt doubled ruled border, raised bands, compartments gilt, blue and green morocco labels with gilt titling, heavily gilt turn-ins. With frontispiece and 19 plates (11 in color), and 25 in-text illustrations, all by Jean de Bosschère. A few very light scratches to covers, a touch of rubbing to extremities, contents pristine. This is a very handsome copy of Flaubert's Faustian novel, with colorful illustrations that are at once alluring and disturbing. First published in 1874, according to Britannica, "Flaubert called the subject of the narrative his 'old infatuation,' which he had begun developing in 1839 as an attempt to create a Faust in the French language. The work is notable for its imagery and its depiction of spiritual torment." Accompanying the text are… Read more
