Stockholm: Nordisk Rotogravyr, 1934.. Octavo, pp. [1-6] 7-176, original pictorial wrappers. First edition. "Eric Georg Mjöberg (1882-1938) was a Swedish zoologist and ethnographer who led the first Swedish scientific expeditions to Australia in the early 1900s ... Mjöberg died in poverty in Stockholm after a long, undiagnosed illness during which he had constant nightmares reflecting his experiences in the Kimberleys, including a sense of being pursued by Aboriginal people and contact with the Wondjina -- creation spirits of the Dreamtime ... Despite his ill health he managed to write an account of this experience." - Wikipedia. A very good copy. A very scarce book. (#162916)

London: Saunders and Otley, 1835.. 12mo, three volumes; [1-2] [1] 2-308; [1-2] [1] 2-300; [1-2] [1] 2-312, early tan pebbled cloth, brown leather title labels affixed to spine panels. First edition. "A story chain set somewhere in the Turkish empire in the early nineteenth century ... [the stories] are not so much reminiscent of THE THOUSAND AND ONE NIGHTS as of contemporary British fiction, being tales of the sea, general adventure, and romance. Noteworthy are the seven tales told by the renegade French sailor Huckaback. Admittedly tall tales, they draw heavily on the tradition of the imaginary voyage. Several are of science fiction interest." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1444. The third and fourth voyages of Huckaback are lost race stories, the last is a voyage to the Arctic and into the Earth's interior. Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy, p. 625. Block, The English Novel 1740-1850, p. 153. Sadleir 1590. Wolff 4529 and 5429a. NCBEL III 705. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978) or Re ... Read more

PACIFIC EDGE

Robinson, Kim Stanley

London, Sydney, Wellington: Unwin Hyman, [1990].. Octavo, boards. First edition. Third book of the "Orange County" trilogy, preceded by THE WILD SHORE (1984) and THE GOLD COAST (1988). A utopia in which "Orange County has benefited from restrictions on corporate size and strict controls over land use and pollution. Although the novel shows the near impossibility of imagining a living utopia (that everyone plays softball pretty constantly may not be an entirely convincing synecdoche of a wholesome lifestyle), a sense of earned freshness and relief permeates its pages." - SFE (online). Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 4-367. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1986-2009. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#155878)
