Description:
San Francisco: The Arion Press, 2009. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine. No. 29 of 300 copies, quarto size, 164 pp., with prospectus and original invoice. Leonard Michaels' (1933-2003) stories focused on the character of Raphael Nachman, "loyal to friends, bashful with women, reverent before the transcendent order of mathematics and music" (per the prospectus). Written at the end of the author's life, between 1997 and 2003, the Nachman series is a capstone to the career of a master of the American short story; the final story, "Cryptology", appeared in "The New Yorker" a few weeks before the author's death. With essays by Robert Hass and Morton Paley, Robert Pinsky, and Diana Ketcham. Collected and published together for the first time, and illustrated with nine photographs taken throughout the author's life (the frontis and one before each story), pulled from the collection of the Michaels family.___DESCRIPTION: Full blue "Iris Wisteria" cloth, with a titling band of Japanese Yatsuo handmade… Read more

New York: Paul R. Johnson, 1808. Full leather. Good +. Volume four only [of a four-volume set], octavo size, 498 pp. What we would today likely have called a "biographical encyclopedia", this set presented short biographies of the "most eminent persons in every nation, but more particularly of Those who have signalized themselves in America" (title page).We have only volume four (alas), with entries beginning with Sir Joshua Reynolds and ending with Zoroaster, followed by a 45-page appendix. As of this writing, there are only two complete sets offered online; we offer this single volume due partly to scarcity and partly due to the interest we find in extensive prior owner annotations throughout.This volume opens on the front free endpaper with the following, all written in an old, flowing script: "Daniel Robinson, OWNER, Price $1.50, No. 114 (which is crossed through), Of my Bound Books, No. 89.

Description:
London: Alex. Hogg, 1795. Leather bound. Very good. Six volumes (complete), octavo size, 2366 total pp. "The Newgate Calendar", named after the Newgate Prison in London, began as a monthly bulletin of executions published by the "Keeper" of Newgate Prison in London. It soon became popular as a form of morality entertainment of the day, in many families ranking alongside of the Bible and "The Pilgrim's Progress" (n.b., info per Wiki). Although taken from actual events, the Calendar is known for presenting embellished accounts of crimes, with much editorialising incorporated into the stories. This six-volume set (five volumes plus the Supplement) comprises the lives and exploits of criminals from 1700 to 1795, and is replete with numerous copper plate engravings depicting the crimes in the text. The first volume has a pictorial title page with an engraved frontispiece dated 1794 and a pictorial title page with the title as "The New & Complete Newgate Calendar" (undated); volumes two through four show… Read more

New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1955. Hardcover. Very good +/good +. Octavo size, 209 pp. The story of the "unsinkable ship", while tragic in the extreme to all who lived through it - or whose lives were lost - continues to fascinate all, even today, over 100 years after the disaster. The ship sank in only a little over two hours, with, it is estimated, a loss of 1,500 souls - out of the approximately 2,224 who were on board.Walter Lord's (1917-2002) thorough account of the sinking of the "RMS Titanic", on April 15, 1912, is widely considered an authoritative source of information for the disaster; Lord interviewed over sixty survivors, and weaves history and memoir together in this volume. Lord also served as a creative consultant to film director James Cameron during the making of the hugely successful 1997 film "Titanic".___DESCRIPTION: Quarter yellow cloth with navy blue cloth boards, dark blue lettering on the spine, endpapers with blueprints of the decks of the "Titanic", two sections of… Read more

London: Constable & Company Limited, 1923. First and Limited Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. First printing, one of 500 copies (unnumbered), octavo size, 205 pp. Anthony Trollope (1815-1882) has delighted generations with his depictions of 19th-century British life; no one can describe his characters with such precision, allowing us to not only visualize the physical attributes of the various characters but also giving us glimpses of their thoughts, desires, fears, and ambitions. Many of us met Trollope through his "Chronicles of Barsetshire", a "series of books set in the imaginary English county of Barsetshire [which] remains his best loved and most famous work, but he also wrote convincing novels of political life as well as studies that show great psychological penetration. One of his greatest strengths was a steady, consistent vision of the social structures of Victorian England, which he re-created in his books with unusual solidity" (n.b., from the website of Britannica).

Number XIII of XV copies, folio size, [24] pp., with an extra suite of three etchings, all of which are signed by the artist, signed by Samuel Beckett on the limitation page. "The North" is a paragraph extracted from the short prose work "The Lost Ones" originally published as "Le Depeupleur" Paris: Les Editions de Minuit, 1971, by Samuel Beckett (1906-1989). The story has no plot, but is rather a metaphorical exploration of the landscape of the unconscious mind, evoked through the image of a flattened cylinder and its crowded inhabitants. Avigdor Arikha (1929-2010) was a close friend of Samuel Beckett, who he met in Paris, where he settled after escaping a Nazi concentration camp. He is regarded among Israel's greatest postwar artists, and was named a Chevalier de la Légion d'honneur in 2005. His images of "the woman vanquished" are chillingly somber, and darkly chaotic.
