Description:
Garden City: Doubleday Junior Books, 1938. First edition. Cloth. Very Good/no dustjacket. Winner of the second Caldecott Medal for illustrated children's books. Handforth was an artist who worked primarily in engravings and lithographs -- the illustrations in this evocative story of a young girl at a festival in China is in the style of his lithos. The Boston Public Library is working on a catalog raisonne of his print work. This book is quite uncommon in the first edition (as with most Doubleday books, the first says "first edition" on the verso of the title page -- in this case it's on the same line as the copyright information and moderately easy to miss). This copy has no dustjacket and a moderately stained binding -- the gold leaf is also somewhat discolored on both the spine and the front cover. The binding is tight and the endpapers and pages are clean. The original jacket was printed on unfinished stock and is quite fragile -- later jackets are on coated stock and… Read more

Description:
Canoga Park CA: Major Books, 1977. Second edition. Mass Market Paperback. Good/no dustjacket (as issued). Revised and enlarged edition of the Brandon House scarcity Known Homosexual. Not quite as rare, but still uncommon, with limited distribution upon its initial publication. One of Hansen's lesser books, very uncommon in either edition. This is not an exceptional copy -- the binding is tight, the pages are clean with some edge-toning from the low-quality paper, but the covers are badly toned and splotchy. No wear, just discoloration. Reading crease on spine. If you're looking for a sturdy but unattractive copy -- this is perfect for you. No tears, minimal wear.

Description:
New York: Putnam, 1966. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good/good. Heinlein's fourth and last Hugo winner. A reasonable copy: jacket rubbed, missing a small portion near the spine affecting the T in "The". Gold printing on spine somewhat tarnished. Book looks used, Jacket is unclipped, with $5.95 price. List of titles facing the title page has "Rocket Ship Galileo" written on the side in ink -- apparently this title was left off the list of titles by Heinlein. An acceptable copy of a book that is seldom offered. Not ex-lib. tsw

Description:
First edition, first printing of "The Climax of the Dune Trilogy." Well, in these days when trilogies can have dozens of books in them, I suppose that might be true. The last Dune book which can be characterized as uncommon, as later ones had much larger printings. A reasonable copy, solid in an edge-worn and rubbed but unclipped jacketa reasonable copy to put on your shelf. With the new film version about to come out, interest in early Dune books is currently rising. See pictures for a better sense of condition. Feel free to ask further questions.

Description:
Introduction by Clemence Dane. Three stories with mild fantastic elements by a peculiar novelist. Mentioned in Bleiler. Yellow buckram, gold titling, t.e.g., no dustjacket or slipcase. The rear fold for the dustjacket is still present, with a bit of its original glassine -- no text on it. Signed on limitation page by Houghton, who truncated his full name (Claude Houghton Oldfield) for his fiction. A very nice production, in fine condition with the spine bottom slightly dented -- pencil notes of former seller on front pastedown. Spine reads upwards, in British fashion. Uncommon.

Description:
Sauk City WI: Arkham House, 1957. First edition. Howard's first collection of poetry. Like Kipling, Howard was a first-rate doggerelist, an uncommon skill (many people do it badly). This is one of the 536 copies that has the title running up the spine of the book, rather than down, making it the first state. There were only 100 of the second state. A difficult book to find in either state. Jacket shows the usual rubbing on the back panel (perhaps a bit more than other copies) -- printing heavy black on a coated white stock and then stacking copies next to each other is a recipe for making copies appear rubbed. Slight edgewear on jacket, slight bumping on spine, gold printing on spine a bit toned -- still, quite a nice copy of a desirable book with one of the smaller print runs from this desirable press. If you can find a better copy cheaper, buy it! TW
