Top corner of the margins have a diagonal cut (no loss of text) perhaps to remove the "Arrest" from others that were fastened together, otherwise the edges are untrimmed.

First printing of all the gruesome details of the trial and death sentence (by torture) on Robert-Francois Damiens for feebly attempting to assassinate Louis XV. The sentence mandated execution by means of torture that was so cruel, so ghastly, so horrible, and so sickening, that it merited immediate and justifiable outrage on an international scale, and even now continues to shock legal and sociological historians, notably Michel Fouchault,… Read more

San Francisco: Maximumrocknroll, 1992. Large 4to. 144 pp., profusely illustrated, printed on newsprint. Staple-bound self-wrappers (215 by 274 mm). Covers are detached and have light creases; the newsprint is lightly yellowed, otherwise good.

Description:
Together seven three-ring binder notebooks (binders worn, boards on vol. VI broken off) -- retained by us as out of "respect du fonds" -- containing approximately 876 typescript and manuscript pages. TOGETHER WITH: 29 file folders of articles, ideas, proposals, and miscellaneous publishing materials, consisting of approximate 300 typescript and manuscript pages, housed in a new Hollinger box. TOGETHER WITH: two of Lasker's passports (1921 and 1926) and a large b/w studio portrait photograph (undated). An important discovery. This is the private, largely unpublished literary archive of the noted social reformer Bruno Lasker (1880-1965), containing well over a thousand pages of typed and hand-written manuscripts. These writings date from 1923 until the year of his death in 1965. Lasker's social work is well known, and concerned racial prejudice and justice, trafficking and human rights, immigration and immigrants' rights, poverty in America and economic inequality. The present literary archive is… Read more

Description:
Paris: Chez Dupont, libraire, 1830. First Edition. 8vo. [4], 218 pp. Contemporary Parisian binding by Rene Simier: brown calf elaborately gilt with large plaques and small tools, discretely inlaid in red and black, smooth spine similarly gilt, brown moire endpapers, turn-ins gilt, a.e.g. Some foxing, traces of damp at end. Large flowing gift inscription opposite title-page. Binding with minor wear, which does not detract from its beauty and interest. An exuberantly decorated French Romantic bookbinding by Rene Simier (1772-1843) who -- with Joseph Thouvenin -- popularized the genre, and in certain respects brought the art of French bookbinding to its apogee. In his long and distinguished career Simier was appointed binders to Empress Marie-Louise, Louis XVIII, Marie-Caroline de Bourbon-Sicily (subsequently Duchesse de Berry). According to Ramsden ("French Bookbinders 1789-1848") Simier's "variety and technique were superb; he had no superior and few rivals during his career." The large and highly… Read more

Paris: Rene Kieffer, 1928. Hardcover. Very good. Large 4to (305 x 235 cm). Original full niger goatskin, elaborately decorated with swirling ornamental motifs, decorated paper pastedowns and endleaves, top edges gilt. Trifle sunning, front cover with a small bit of stress (5 mm) on lower joint. In lovely state. First edition thus. ONE OF 50 COPIES ON JAPON. First published in 1863, Baudelaire's contemporary biography and critical assessment of his friend remains indispensable. Baudelaire -- poet, provoker of public morals and art critic -- wrote: "The majority of the public have long since, indeed from his very first work, dubbed him leader of the modern school." Jonathan Jones, in his review of the "Constable to Delacroix" exhibition at the Tate, wrote that "Baudelaire worshipped the painter as a dark god: 'Delacroix, lake of blood, haunted by evil angels,' he called him. Delacroix didn't agree with everything Baudelaire wrote about him. He was baffled when the poet, who also translated Edgar Allan… Read more

Description:
Paris: Firmin-Didot, 1875. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Large 8vo. ix, [3], 145 pp. Bound in contemporary French half calf over comb-marbled boards, comb-marbled endpapers, sprinkled edges (minor wear along extremities; lower left corner of front cover a little scraped). Presentation copy from the author to M. Anatole Gruger ("hommage cordial de l'auteur"). This is the catalogue of the Musee du Conservatoire National de Musique, which describes an extraordinary array of musical instruments, including Paganini instruments, and is at the same time a small encyclopedia, engaging and instructive. Gustave Chouquet (1819-1886) was born in The Hague into a life of music and music criticism. In 1864, the Academy of Fine Arts awarded him the Bordin Prize for a history of music from the fourteenth century until the end of the seventeenth. In 1868, he won another award on a history of dramatic music in France from its origins. In 1870 he received the Cross of the Legion of Honor. In 1871, Chouquet… Read more

Blindstamps of the Theological Institute of Connecticut (now known as the Hartford Seminary).

First edition of this "Fantastical chronicle of Nonsense on the subject of Peace. The text presents an inexhaustible catalogue of the wildest neologisms." (Mercier, La Litterature Facetieuse). 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

Description:
New York: Baker & Scribner, 1850. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. 8vo. 105 pp. Original drab boards, recently rebacked with brownish-green Japanese tissue, cream-colored pastedowns and endpapers preserved. This copy, in boards, never had 2-page advert leaf that was inserted in the cloth case-bindings. Fascinating and methodical annihilation of quack medicine from the medieval to the "modern" era, still highly readable after 168 years. Includes detailed dissections of Perkins' Tractors, Fabricius Hildanus' ointment, pneumatic medicine, tar water, the sale of nostrums, Stahl's anima, and homeopathy in particular. Hooker's analysis is alarmingly "modern" in its methodology, decrying the "Post hoc ergo propter hoc" fallacy (Latin: "after this, therefore because of this") which continues to the present day. Hooker's work received the Fiske Fund Prize Dissertation of the Rhode Island Medical Society. Cordasco, "Homeopathy in the United States: A Bibliography of Homeopathic Medical Imprints,… Read more

Description:
Paris and Mecca, 1799. Hardcover. Very good. Large 8vo. Together 6 volumes (collations below). Contemporary French red morocco, smooth spines lettered direct, all edges gilt (some wear to binding extremities, spines a little darkened). These volumes include all of Savary's accounts of his traveld to Egypt and Greece, plus his very important translation of the Koran from the Arabic into French, with a biography of Mohamed; the present set was beautifully bound in the late 18th- or very early 19th-century. Claude-Etienne Savary (1750-1788) was an orientalist, pioneer of Egyptology and translator of Koran. In 1776 he departed for Egypt, and after having remained successively in Alexandria and Cairo, he explored (for nearly two years) several islands of Greece and the Archipelago, in particular those of Rhodes. Savary provided many details concerning the daily life of the population. A fluent speaker of Arabic, Savary's sensitive and vibrant account is a contrast striking with the austere description… Read more

Contemporary English calf, rebacked with new spine and red morocco label, text slightly browned. Preserved in a red cloth protective case. Seventeenth-century "Court TV": Tours of the Courtrooms of London. Fascinating Restoration era handbook and guide to the various courts of law in London; it is a complete revision of the so-called "City Law" of 1647 and 1658, as we see from the Preface: "There hath been several times printed a Tract, called The City Law, [1647, 1658] which treats of some of these Courts: But there being many Omissions and Defects therein, this Discourse hath not only supplyed the same, but also rectified the mistakes therein."
