Description:
Boston and New York: Joy, Langdon & Co, 1873. Very good. Textile product label (170 x 135). Engraved script below imprint cropped affecting several words, one short tear, corner chip, light soil. Our example appears to have actually been used for its original purchase, namely pasted on fabric as there is still glue residue on the verso, and numbering in pencil and also red ink on the verso. The number of yards of the fabric is recorded in contemporary ink: "48.2" Wonderfully gloomy factory scene rendered at the height of the American Industrial Revolution. The engraving depicts the Boston manufacturing plant of Joy, Langdon & Co., located at 76 Chauncey Street. Here the viewer is confronted by a bleak "no exit" view, with towering factories on both sides bisected by train tracks leading inexorably towards a belching smoke stack; on the left is an almost ecclesiastical looking building topped with a bell tower. The scene is populated with a total of seven men in suits and top-hats; curiously, the… Read more

Norwalk, CT: Burndy Library, 1955. First Edition. Softcover. Very good. Large 4to. 96 pp., 200 items described, with numerous illustrations throughout the text. Original printed wrappers. Faint darkening along top edges of wrappers, but an excellent copy: square, tight, and unmarked. *NOT* ex-library! PRESENTATION COPY of the original edition of "Heralds of Science" which has been consulted continuously by cataloguers of rare scientific and medical books since 1955. The work is logically arranged as follows: Astronomy, Botany, Chemistry, Electricity and Magnetism, General Science, Geology, Mathematics, Medicine, Physics, Technology and Zoology. It is notable that Bern Dibner dedicates the work "To the Bookdealers in many lands, who patiently gathered, preserved, collated and catalogued our heritage of science, and who, in their transactions, invariably gave away more than they received." Inscribed: "For Martin Simmons from Bern Dibner 30 ix 76.

Description:
Brussels: Bibliotheca Wittockiana, 1986. First Edition. Softcover. Very good. Folio. 167 pp. Featuring 75 items, each beautifully illustrated in b/w and color. With an introduction by Jean Toulet in French. Original illustrated wrappers. The indispensable, profusely illustrated exhibition catalogue of 75 fine and historic bindings from the unrivaled collection of Bibliography formed by B.H. Breslauer. The famed "Bibliotheca Bibliographica Breslaueriana" will certainly never be surpassed in terms of quality, scope, and size. Breslauer was one of the great antiquarian booksellers of the 20th century and his connoisseurship and erudition is attested by his epic catalogues. The BBB was his life's work; it was dispersed in 3 astounding sales at Christie's New York in 2005. Michael Laird was the principal author of the catalogues for the Second and Third sales, and his research was utilized through the catalogue for the First (obliquely credited in the introduction to same).

Description:
Austin: [Harry Ransom] Humanities Research Center, 1967. First Edition. Good. Tall narrow 8vo. 71 pp., illustrated throughout. Original grey boards printed in black and red (lacking dust-jacket, corners a little bumped; ownership signature on verso of front endleaf; spine a little palm-soiled). NOT ex-library! With descriptions of 120 Bibles in the collection of the HRC, manuscript printed. A revision and an expansion of the 1960 exhibition catalogue "The Holy Bible" by Edwin T. Bowden. The present catalogue is handsomely designed with decorated boards, decorated endpapers, a decorated double-spread title-pages, decorated initials, and a number of illustrations. It is not without interest that the catalogue was issued BEFORE the HRC acquired the great Pforzheimer copy of the 42-line "Gutenberg" Bible.

Description:
Marlin, Texas, 1944. Small promotional brochure, folded once to produce 4 pp., small illustration of the Majestic Hotel on the front panel. Scarce promotional brochure for the Torbett Clinic and Hospital, a private corporation founded in 1936 in Marlin, Texas, which was -- and is now -- famous for its hot mineral water. As it turned out, the Torbett Clinic prospered, and is today known as the Falls Community Hospital and Clinic. Includes instructions on healthy behavior (such as stretch exercises and even a Daily Prayer). Our question: how was even possible that such a little piece of obsolescence should have survived?
