Description:
London: Printed by T. Spilsbury, for J. Johnson, 1788. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good.

Light scattered foxing, light dust soiling in title page, p. xvi scuffed, modern ink annotation on p. 31, offsetting from plates on pp. 29 and 115. Very good. Scarce complete first edition containing all three plates, including the rarely seen folding plate of pneumatic apparatus; the rarely seen dedication leaf to John Page is also present.

Description:
[New York?]: Poetry on Films, Inc., 1970. First Edition. Softcover. Very good. 11 inches tall. [2],61,[1] pp. Photographic covers, side-stapled. Pink and blue tissue endpapers. Light wear to covers and minor soiling to rear cover. Very good to near fine. One of 474 copies in the trade edition (of 500 copies total). A series of "poemworks" composed chiefly on May 10, 1970 at Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, in the presence of Cristina, his love interest and muse. The final eight poems were written on May 11 and 12, in part en route to and upon arrival in New York City. When Malanga published the work two months later, he dedicated it "to cristina who continues to make everything possible." But, Cristina remains a mystery - she appears to be Cristina Miller of Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, home of Andrew Wyeth, but beyond this and her dazzling effect on Malanga little is known. The title is, of course, a nod to Wyeth's most famous painting. One poem in the collection,… Read more

Description:
York, Pa.: Pentz, [1887]. First Edition. Photograph. Near fine. Cabinet card (albumen photographic print mounted on card), approximately 6 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches. Stamp of photographer and inscription and signature of subject on verso, in his foot. Light wear, near fine. Cabinet card portrait of Charles Tripp, "The Armless Wonder," inscribed and signed by him, evidently during a tour in York, Pennsylvania, where the photograph was taken. Charles Broton Tripp (1855-1930) was one of the great human marvels of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Born without arms, Tripp taught himself at a young age how to dress, eat, shave, write, and perform a variety of other tasks with his feet. He had become particularly noted for his calligraphy and woodworking skills when he left home for New York City at the age of 17 to seek employment with P. T. Barnum. Barnum immediately hired him, and Tripp would perform for the circuses of Barnum, Bailey, and the Ringling Brothers for the next 35 years and later… Read more

Edges scalloped and gilt, photographer's stamp on recto. Signed by the subjects, "Millie-Christine," on verso. Very light wear, faint fox mark in image background, else near fine. Signed cabinet card portrait of the famous conjoined twins Millie and Christine McCoy (1851-1912), by the great photographer of human marvels on the Bowery, Charles Eisenmann. The twins, often referred to collectively as “Millie-Christine” or “The Two-Headed Nightingale,” were among the most widely viewed, scrutinized, and applauded human anomalies of the 19th century. Billing them often as the “Eighth Wonder of the World,” promoters touted the fact that the girls were joined at the lower spine, more intimately attached than Chang and Eng, the original Siamese Twins. Audiences drawn to see the twins’… Read more
