Description:
A reasonably nice copy of this Nebula Award winning novel. A shorter version won the Hugo Award for 1959 -- the novel is (IMO) enough better to be really worth the second award. The book is clean and tight; the jacket has some discoloration and several small closed tears, front and spine -- see pictures. Jacket is unclipped, with $4.95 price still present.Rear of jacket has a bookseller's sticker (Kroch and Brentano's, Chicago). An uncommon book, and a real SF cornerstone.

Description:
One of seventy-five copies of the limited edition of this collection of etchings by Kinney, with an original etching of Ruth St. Denis. Book is as new, but the box in which it is contained is missing a small portion of the edge (visible in the picture). Included with the volume are three extra unsigned engravings by Kinney: his New Year cards for 1934, 1935, and 1938. All are whimsical fantasy scenes of dancer-like elves. Many engravers of the period produced such cards, and they are significantly less frequently offered than their major works. This is copy 55 of 75 copies, with uncut pages and the original glassine wrapper. The original etching is laid into a folding paper case that is bound into the book. The limited edition is scarce, and the extra cards are scarcer.

Description:
New York NY: [none], 1930. First edition. Hardcover. fine/no dustjacket (as issued). As far as I can tell, this is the first and only separate edition of this short story, which is appears only in the Sussex and Burwasheditions of his work. This is a short story, not to be confused with the poem of the same name, about the inventors of the bow, armor, gunpowder and such in Hell, lamenting their fates and claiming to be benefactors of mankind because they caused progress. Suffice to say this is a scarce item, just the thing for a Kipling collector who thinks he has everything. This copy is numbered 39 of 91 copies for private distribution -- actual numbered copies seem less common than unnumbered ones. Bound in orange boards with cloth back-strip printed in gold. The lower fore-corners show slight wear, and the gilt on the spine title has faded somewhat -- otherwise, this is an immaculate copy. Laid in is a small note by a previous bookseller talking about the scarcity of the item and claiming that… Read more
