Description:
Venezia: Antonio Fortunato Stella, 1794. FIRST EDITION. 200 x 130 mm. (7 7/8 x 5 1/4"). xxiv, 172 pp., [1] leaf. FIRST EDITION. Original tan printed paper wrappers, with border of swirling ribbons, each cover with slightly different central bearded figure dressed in robes, standing over an open book, with a crescent moon in the sky. Covers a little soiled and with a few small, faint stains, head and tail of spine with VERY SLIGHT loss, a few isolated rust spots internally, two small marginal stains affecting a few leaves each, but A REMARKABLY WELL-PRESERVED EXAMPLE OF AN EXTREMELY FRAGILE VOLUME. This rare book on the Islamic faith is of considerable interest for its content as well as its excellent state of preservation. A particular source of pleasure is the complete lack of sophistication to the insubstantial binding, allowing us to appreciate the work in its original, unaltered state. The images on the printed wrappers here are especially intriguing, depicting two members of the… Read more

Description:
New York: Phillips & Hunt [and several other publishers elsewhere], 1879. 241 x 168 mm. (9 1/2 x 6 5/8"). 50 leaves, including 6 (blank) lined leaves with columns for subscriber name, address, and binding style preference. Original burgundy cloth with gilt titling, two tondo portraits, and two medallions with vignettes on front cover, front pastedown with the spine design for the publisher's cloth binding, rear pastedown with the spine design for morocco binding. Many woodcut illustrations throughout. Binding a bit battered and soiled (and with evidence of silverfish visitation), occasional smudging internally, but solid and generally well preserved for an ephemeral item of this sort. Generally a prospectus like the present item was used by canvassers to sell subscriptions door-to-door for forthcoming publications; Mark Twain had most of the first printings of his books sold this way. But it appears as if the present work might (also?) have been marketed through congregations, with a… Read more

Publisher's blue cloth with gilt pictorial design on upper covers and on flat spine, all edges gilt. With engraved head- and tailpieces and historiated initials. Stewart 132. Extremities lightly rubbed, occasional mild foxing, otherwise an excellent copy, clean and bright inside and out, with few signs of use. This is an appealing copy of the further adventures of Mowgli and his cohort from one of Britain's best-known writers. Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) is most famous for his works portraying the lives of both natives and colonialists on the Indian subcontinent. An opponent of female suffrage and a staunch supporter of British imperialism, Kipling nonetheless had great sympathy for the traditions of India as well as the literary ability and desire to present it as a land of beauty and enchantment. He was born in Bombay, where his father ran a… Read more

The verse of Thomas Beedome (d. 1641) includes love poems, elegies for such figures as his friend John Donne and Gustav Adolphus of Sweden, and religious works. Somewhat in the manner of Donne, they were published in 1641 after his death, and a pirated edition came out in 1657. Thereafter they languished until Meynell took an interest in them and edited them for this printing. The Nonesuch Press was founded in 1923 by typographer and book designer Francis Meynell (1891-1975) with the help of his… Read more
