Description:
New York: Coward McCann, 1928. First edition with Jersey City Printing Company on the copyright page. Oblong, original illustrated boards, illustrated throughout. Signed by Wanda Gag on the verso of the front free endpaper. Near fine in a very good dust jacket. Housed in a custom half morocco box. Scarce and desirable signed. Millions Of Cats won a Newbery Honor award in 1929, one of the few picture books to do so. It is the oldest American picture book still in print. Once upon a time there was an old man and an old woman who were very lonely. They decided to get a cat, but when the old man went out searching, he found not one cat, but millions and billions and trillions of cats! Unable to decide which one would be the best pet, he brought them all home. How the old couple came to have just one cat to call their own is a classic tale that has been loved for generations.

Description:
New York: The Dial Press, 1971. First edition of this classic novel, which depicts the struggles of African Americans as seen through the eyes of the narrator, a woman named Jane Pittman. Octavo, original boards. Lengthily signed by the author on the title page, "We ain't giving up" I said "We done gone this far" Ernest J. Gaines." Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a few small closed tears. Jacket design by Mike McGiver. This is a novel in the guise of the tape-recorded recollections of a black woman who has lived 110 years, who has been both a slave and a witness to the black militancy of the 1960's. In this woman Ernest Gaines has created a legendary figure, a woman equipped to stand beside William Faulkner's Dilsey in The Sound And The Fury." Miss Jane Pittman, like Dilsey, has 'endured,' has seen almost everything and foretold the rest. Gaines' novel brings to mind other great works The Odyssey for the way his heroine's travels manage to summarize the American history of her race, and… Read more

Description:
New York: Atheneum, 1964. First edition of Gaines' first book. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by the author on the title page with the added words, "When Brother got out of the car, the two Cajuns sitting on the porch turned to look at him. Ernest J. Gaines." Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of shelfwear. A unique example. Catherine Carmier is a compelling love story set in a deceptively bucolic Louisiana countryside, where blacks, Cajuns, and whites maintain an uneasy coexistence. "[Gaines's] best writing is marked by what Ralph Ellison, describing the blues, called near-tragic, near-comic lyricism" (Newsweek).His 1993 novel, A Lesson Before Dying, won the National Book Critics Circle Award for fiction. Gaines has been a MacArthur Foundation fellow, awarded the National Humanities Medal, and inducted into the French Ordre des Arts et des Lettres (Order of Arts and Letters) as a Chevalier.

Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Larry Owens from John Kenneth Galbraith." Fine in a near fine dust jacket that shows only the lightest of wear. Galbraith's ideas often addressed the influence of the potential market power of large corporations (Dunn and Pressman, 2005). He believed that corporations could become price makers, rather than price takers, by weakening the accepted principle of consumer sovereignty (Galbraith, 1970). This, in turn, allowed corporations to efficiently increase the production of their goods if they could achieve the strongest market power.

Cambridge, MA: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1988. First edition of this work by the famed economist. Octavo, original half cloth. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author in the year of publication to a Vermont friend and publisher, "For Carol with love John G 1988." Fine in a fine dust jacket. For 10 days in his Vermont farmhouse, liberal economist Galbraith (The Affluent Society) held a minisummit with Menshikov, a Soviet economist who edits Prague's party journal. This transcript of their cautious talks offers fresh ideas for those seeking closer U.S.-Soviet relations. Both agree that their respective countries should cooperate on medical research, development of energy sources and the war against narcotics. Both are receptive to joint economic projects that might stimulate an expansion of trade. They also criticize establishment interests on both sides that seek to perpetuate the cold war. As the duo takes turns cross-examining each other on the relative merits of capitalism and communism,… Read more

Description:
Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1986. Few individuals have participated so intimately and so diversely in the cultural and political life of both the nation and world throughout the late 20th century as John Kenneth Galbraith. An economist by training and profession, he came first to public attention - and controversy - when as price czar he led in the creation of the economic structure that held the economy stable through the vast expansion of output in World War II. In ensuing years as an author and journalist of widely varied interests, he became one of the most respected figures of all time. This book is a treasure trove culled from his papers, a cavalcade of comment, some of it deeply personal, on world affairs, domestic politics, and literary matters extending from the end of the depression years to yesteryear.
