Description:
Petrograd, 1923. Very good. Single sheet of heavy wove paper 13 by 18 inches with blue, red, green and gold calligraphy congratulating the circus orchestral director on twenty years of service. Addressed to Dear Colleague Stanislav Martinovich Novitsky from the Guild (Collective) of Circus Workers, and signed by what appears to be all of the performers and workers of the circus. The St. Petersburg Circus was founded by an Italian immigrant, Gaetano Cinzelli (Chinzelli) in 1877. Even though Cinzelli died in 1881, his family continued to manage the circus until the October Revolution of 1917. It is still performing today. We are unable to decipher the names of the performers, except for one, which appears on the left margin near the bottom: G. Chinzelli, probably a grandson, possibly the son, of the founder. There are three horizontal folds in the certificate, a little roughness around the edges, and some light soil and offsetting from the gold, but this is a very good example of… Read more

New York: n.p., 1918. Wraps. Very good. First separate edition. 8vo. 121,(1),3pp. Printed wraps. A fine copy. Originally published over seven issues of the Alienist and Neurologist between 1915 and 1917, Shroeder pulls together the writings of Ida C., the earthly wife of an angel (in her own words), who died 22 years previous to this publication. Considered an obscene sex manual by local authorities. Craddock was jailed on morality charges several times. But Aleister Crowley says no Magick library is complete without this title. A very good copy with only a race of wear to the spine. Housed in a custom leather-backed clamshell case. Rare.

Description:
East Aurora, New York: The Roycrofters, 1903. Hardcover. Fine. Grace Fournier. Thin folio. 36pp. One of a few 'tall' copies printed on Roycroft handmade paper. Roycrofter records for this period are scant so the total print run of tall copies is unknown but is believed to be fairly limited. The 1905 and 1906 catalogues list the printing numbers only as "a few". This copy is bound in 3/4 brown levant morocco, marbled paper sides and matching endpapers. The spine is in six compartments with raised bands, and each compartment but the title is exquisitely tooled in a gilt floral motif with colored flower petals. The binding is believed to be by Danish binder Lorenz Schwartz. The colophon identifies the illuminator as Grace Fournier, the daughter of Alexis Fournier. Fournier and his family moved to East Aurora to work for Elbert Hubbard and the Roycrofters in 1903, the same year as the publication of this title. There are two beautifully illuminated initials in the text, one of them in… Read more
