Beautiful Book on Science and Nature from the 18th Century with 10 Fold-Out Plate Engravings Curious Remarks and Observations Extracted from the History and Memoirs of the Royal Academy of Science at Paris Vol. II Which concludes the General Physics by Dr. Peter Templeman London: Printed for C. Davis, MDCCLIV 1754. Second volume of a two-volume set, although the first volume recounts a voyage to South America. The Second volume is complete in of itself with 10 fold-out plates, mainly of insects and bees, and other exotic creatures. Appears to be quite rare.

Alanna: The First Adventure (Book One of the Song of the Lioness) by Tamora Pierce Hardcover First Edition - First Printing Atheneum 1983. $12.95 cover price. States "First Edition" on the copyright page which signifies both a first edition and first printing. 241 pages. In red cloth with embossing on the front. Not an easy book to find at the moment. SPECIAL COPY/Provenance: This copy formerly owned by fantasy writer Robin McKinley. Signed by her on a bookplate attached to the front free end-paper. Fine- in Fine Dust Jacket. A really beautiful copy. The book itself is clean and smart, with clean boards and straight edges. It would be just about a perfect copy, except the only shortcoming is some foxing to the top of the text-block. (Did McKinley not store the book properly?) Else a really nice exceptional copy with exceptional provenance.NOTE: All modern books with dust jackets come with dust jacket covers. ALSO: The picture is of the actual item for sale. (The picture is NOT a stock photo.)

A good but by not perfect signed first US printing copy of the first book of His Dark Materials trilogy. The Golden Compass (a.k.a. The Northern Lights, first book of "His Dark Materials" trilogy) by Philip Pullman Hardcover First US Edition - First Printing New York: Knopf, 1996. (true first edition Scholastic Press UK, 1995). SIGNED, inscribed by Pullman "Best wishes to Brian- Philip Pullman" with Pullman's characteristic underline of his name. Because of the condition, priced at about 1/2 better copies which start at about $250+ signed, and I have seen prices for the signed set at $1000+. For the bargain-hunter collector. Priced to sell. Very Good in Very Good Dust Jacket. Sadly whoever Brian was, he didn't do a very good job of taking care of his book, and this is by no means a perfect copy. The book itself has noticeable reading wear, mostly soiling to the text block and some kind of 1/2" water stain to the upper text block near the spine, tender corners and shelf-wear to the bottom edge. There is also n ... Read more
