An exceptionally pleasing copy, square and tight, with the gilt just a touch faded to spine and rear corners gently bumped.

Description:
Buenos Aires: Editorial Sudamericana, 1967. First edition. Very Good +. Octavo; illustrated wrappers; 351pp, [1]. A Very Good+ copy. Some creasing to the spine and faint writing marks on the rear wrapper (as if someone was doing their math homework on top of it), minor dampstain at the top of the rear wrapper, but in excellent condition internally. The Nobel Prize winner's masterpiece, a highspot of Latin American literature, and likely the most widely-read Spanish language novel aside from 'Don Quixote.' The book had a first printing of 8,000 copies, which first appeared in Buenos Aires bookstores on June 6th, 1967; it took exactly two weeks for them to be sold out. Three more printings were done in 1967 (June, September, and December), each of them approximately 20,000 copies. The first printing is the only state of the book with the cover art featuring the ship and three yellow flowers, a design GarcĂ­a MĂĄrquez reportedly hated; an alternate design created by a friend graced the cover of later… Read more

Description:
New York: Harper & Row, 1970. First English language edition. Fine/Fine. In a second state jacket without the exclamation point ending the first paragraph on the front flap. Fine in Fine, a bright copy with just a hint of sunning to the spine.One Hundred Years of Solitude is considered Marquez' greatest work, and is the book that made his international reputation. First published in 1967 - and in English in 1970 -- the wide spanning story of the Buendia family would achieve incredible popularity and, in fact, be responsible for lifting the future Nobel Prize winner out of poverty as it would go on to sell more than 30,000,000 copies. Considered the ultimate expression of his style of magical realism, One Hundred Years of Solitude has won awards in numerous countries and was listed on Le Monde's list of the 100 Books of the Century."He has written a novel so filled with humor, rich detail and startling distortion that it brings to mind the best of Faulkner and Gunter Grass. It is a South American… Read more

The mink, a gun linked to the murder of a cop, and a dead body in a hotel -- these are the components that make the novel, which was adapted into one of the most popular episodes of the Perry… Read more

Description:
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1926. First edition. Very Good +. First trade edition, signed by the author on the title page, dated 1927. Book complete with all seven illustrations after Gibran's own drawings. A Very Good + copy with bright gilt on the front board, but dulled on the spine. There were 95 signed limited copies, but signed trade editions are scarce.An important collection of poetry and drawings from the author of "The Prophet." Written a few years before he died, "Sand and Foam" displays Gibran's characteristic spiritualism. The book, like much of Gibran's work, influenced the artistic movements of the 1960s and a famous line from it - "Half of what I say is meaningless, but I say it so that the other half may reach you" - actually appears in The Beatles' song "Julia." Though never well regarded critically, Gibran was an immensely popular poet. "The Prophet" alone sold over one million copies before 1960 and has been translated into over 40 languages. Very Good +.

Description:
[N.P], 1854. Complete 28 page handwritten manuscript play prompt, drawn directly from Julia Corner's 1854 adaptation of Beauty and the Beast. Stitched at spine and holding, though some pages are loose or delicate. Occasional staining, largely confined to margins or rear blanks. Composed in one woman's hand in ink throughout, with what appears to be a much younger girl's annotation in pencil to the final pages. The text throughout corresponds with Corner's book, with the exception of stage directions occasionally being abbreviated or simplified. We have been unable to locate the "Miss Lacy's School" mentioned in the younger girl's note.Julia Corner, the daughter of a printer, became a prolific children's author in her time; and her adaptation of Beauty and the Beast was hailed for "creating quite a sensation among all the middling-size children" according to Eliza Cook's Journal from that year. At a time when there was debate about the morality of performance and theater, Corner was noted for "wisely… Read more

Description:
Auburn, NY, 1867. Full sheep record book stamped in gilt on spine and boards. Foot of spine perished and boards rubbed; front hinge cracked but holding. Containing 113 manuscript pages in the hand of Lena M. Gould, daughter of Michigan businessman Amos Gould, during her time as a student at a New York women's seminary. The notebook contains three key sections: notes and short essays for her Intellectual Colloquy 35 pages), notes and short essays for a colloquy on religion (35 pages), notes keeping a running dialogue of commentary documenting discussion of her and classmates in her Moral Philosophy Colloquy (43 pages). The result is a research rich document not only revealing one young woman grappling with ethical questions of the world, but further showing how she and her peers used a space of higher learning to debate, raise more complex questions, and rely on each other to improve their understanding.Lena was 18 years old at the time she recorded these notes at the Young Ladies Institute of Auburn… Read more
