Description:
Boston: Little, Brown & Co, 1906. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. Very good. 8vo. vi, 319, [1] pp. + 4 pp. advertisements. With a frontispiece + 1 plate by John Cameron. Bound in original green publisher's cloth designed by the Decorative Designers firm (signed with their interlocking "DD" monogram, the second D facing left); title lettered in red-orange on front cover and spine, large spider web pierced by a green sword with elaborate gilt handle. Early gift inscription on first blank dated 1914. Curious English mystery novel distinguished by the excellent American publisher's binding depicting a "spider-web" motif rendered by the esteemed Decorative Designers firm (active 1895-1931). The firm was unique in that it employed a number of designers, and each was responsible for certain aspects of a design -- an early example of division of labor in creative work. The founder of the firm was Henry Thayer (1867-1940) who was trained as an architect (following the example of Stanford White, architect and book… Read more

Description:
Amsterdam: Chez l'honore et fils, libraires, 1748. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. 2 vols. in one. 8vo. I: [10], cxix, [7], 208 pp. + 1 f. ("Errata" for Tom. 1). II: [2], 231 pp. + 1 f. ("Addition") + 1 f. ("Errata" for Tom 1 [sic]). First title page with unobtrusive paper defect on lower margin, not affecting text; this copy is lacking half-title and Errata leaf for Tom. 2. Very attractive 19th-century French red glazed boards, red morocco spine, lettered in gilt directly (two insignificant worm-holes on lower hinge, leading nowhere; trifle wear to binding extremities. Completely unsophisticated. First printing of "Telliamed," in every way a remarkable book. Disguised as an Oriental fantasy, it contains perhaps the earliest appearance of one of the most important of all evolution speculations, namely the so-called ultra-neptunian theory: that the entire Earth was, and is, a marine deposit, and that all life on land originated from creatures of the sea.

S.l. (Paris?): s.n., 1614. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. 8vo. Collation: A-D4, COMPLETE. 32 pp. Recent half calf over marbled boards in the antique style. Blindstamps of the Theological Institute of Connecticut (now known as the Hartford Seminary).

The pamphlet is now very rare and was apparently suppressed upon publication according to Jules Mathorez in his bibliography of Maitre Guillaume. Until the age of 40 Gaillaume Marchand (a.k.a. Maitre Guillaume) practiced as an apothecary in Louviers, Normandy. A respected Bourgeois in his town, he was conspicuous for his exemplary piety, his devotion to the Catholic religion… Read more

Paris: G. Mazeyrie, 1942. Very good. 8vo. (210 x 130 mm). [16] pp., each one illustrated by Marcel Mars-Trick. Some staining at top of wrappers and elsewhere, some toning in the text, 1" vertical tear on the bottom of (unnumbered) page 5/6. Suitable for exhibition and study. FRENCH ANTI-SEMITIC ABCs FOR CHILDREN. Festooned with balloons and letters of the alphabet, covers of the present pamphlet are innocuous; however, the contents are abhorrent. The text and illustrations encouraged French children (and their parents and teachers) to collaborate with the Nazis, and to spread hate against Jews, Freemasons, Americans, and the English. NO COPY IN THE BIBLIOTHEQUE NATIONALE. This rare ABCs chapbook was designed "for use by small children who learn to read and adults who do not yet understand French" (sic). It is filled with stereotypical Jewish caricatures, accompanied by verses in French that spew nationalistic and racist hatred. On page [15] two Jewish men gaze at the French ship Normandie leaving… Read more

1970. Archive of manuscript sermon material from 1930s-1970s of an influential Northern Ireland Presbyterian pastor, Rev. James A. McFarland (1904-1987), including over 150 sketches, outlines, and complete manuscripts. Meticulously organized chronologically in folders, and preserved in a large Hollinger box. MANUSCRIPT SERMONS WRITTEN DURING THE IRISH TROUBLES. James A. McFarland (1904-1987) pastored at Toberkeigh and Croaghmore from 1931-1945, Sinclair Seamen's in Belfast from 1945-1960, and at Castlerock from 1960-1976. Many of the sermons contain multiple drafts, note sheets, and annotations as McFarland recycled sermons for different congregations throughout his career. Written during a tumultuous time in Northern Ireland's history, many of the sermons touch on contemporary social and political issues, including Catholic-Protestant tensions and the Troubles, often particularly reflected in sermon revisions and additional annotations. McFarland also engaged in conflict resolution work with the… Read more

Paris: Leon Techener, 1877. First Edition. Softcover. Very good. 8vo. [4], 83 pp. Recent sympathetic wrappers, edges untrimmed (some a little frayed). Copy no. 74 of 100 numbered copies, being one of the first celebrations of 17th-century French illustrated books, published when the craze for 18th-century French illustrated books was at its apogee: "Nous aurions voulu appeler l'attention des bibliophiles sur l'ensemble des livres du dix-septième siècle, trop negliges aujourd'hui, quand ce ne sont pas des exemplaires des editions originales de nos classiques." From the introduction (translated): "We propose to describe the principal books illustrated by Sebastien Le Clerc; our focus is on Parisian imprints, and among these are the publications in which the text is particularly notable. As for the books that Le Clerc 'decorated' while he was at Metz: their description is almost impossible because these books are almost never found, except in very rare instances.

Paris: Chez Didot, 1754. Unbound. Very good. Size of images: 19 cm high (platemark) x 28 cm wide (platemark). 25 cm high x 35 cm wide. Professionally matted and framed. Two original handcolored copperplate engravings of Mexico City. The first engraving is a bird's-eye view of Mexico City (Tenochtitlan) on Lake Texcoco, depicting the City as it was when the Spanish conquered it. The engraving shows the various islands and causeways or bridges which linked parts of the city. Also includes men on horseback, domestic animals, boats, churches, dwellings, wicker dams, and the main square. The second is a bird's-eye view of Mexico City as it appeared after the Spanish destroyed and rebuilt it. Much of Lake Texcoco has been filled in, and there are many more buildings (it has been said that within a few months 100,000 houses had been built). The engraving depicts boats, palm trees, native Americans carrying burdens, and the dam. The probable source of the two images is Montanus's "De nieuwe en onbekende… Read more
