Description:
Portland, Oregon: Metropolitan Press, 1947. FIRST EDITION. 204 x 140 mm. (8 x 5 1/2"). 1 p.l. (half title), 209 pp. FIRST EDITION. Publisher's tan buckram, pictorial endpapers. In original illustrated dust jacket. With five plates and numerous illustrations in the text by Florenz Clark. Dust jacket with short splits along two folds, a little creasing to front, and slight fraying to head edge, but the book in fine condition inside and out. This is a charming collection of pioneer tales from the descendant of several early settlers. Lifelong Seattle resident Sarah Sophia Frye Bass (1867-1947) shares stories of the earliest days of the settlement, the Native peoples in the area, the growing city, and the exploits of the first families. In addition to writing books on Seattle's beginnings, Mrs. Bass also donated books and money to establish the library that bears her name at the Seattle Museum of History and Industry.

London: [Printed at the Burleigh Press, Bristol, for] Fanfrolico Press, 1927. FIRST EDITION. 203 x 133 mm. (8 x 5 1/4"). 4 p.l. (including a blank), 55, [1] pp. FIRST EDITION. Original green paper boards and burgundy cloth spine with gilt lettering. With an etching by Lindsay at the front. Light staining on front pastedown (vestiges of bookplate?), otherwise very fine. A substantial analysis divided into six parts, this, as the book indicates, "is not a critical essay on Blake's poetry, but an effort to define the condition of mind his work represents and to expose its psychological machinery from the inside by employing an idiom which is as close, poetically, as [Lindsay] can make it to the nature of the subject, and by accepting life as existing in terms of the values [Blake] creates.

Description:
Germany[?], 13th century. 396 x 570 mm. (15 5/8 x 22 3/8"). Double column, 34 lines in a square script. Mounted on thick, vellum-like modern paper. A few marginal notations and a line of text in Italian in a later hand, remnants of a stamp (probably from its use as a binding). Recovered from a binding and therefore quite browned and with the text on the back obscured by binder's glue, small losses to the gutter and the corners, but still a good, presentable specimen and very legible on the one side. This bifolium preserves two pages of a monumental liturgical Pentateuch, or humash, containing the Hebrew Masoretic text and the Aramaic translation of the Targum, alternating verse by verse, with the grammatical notes of the Masora parva between the columns. Despite the losses sustained from its later use as binding scrap, this item has many positives: it is mostly intact, a bifolium and not just a single leaf, and comes from a desirable part of the Bible, relating the stories of Abraham bargaining… Read more
