Hammersmith: Kelmscott Press, 1893. ONE OF 1,500 COPIES on paper (and 45 on vellum.). This little book was our private press' least private work. It was printed in public as a "moving exhibit" during the 1893 Arts and Crafts Exhibition held in the New Gallery, becoming one of the exposition's most popular attractions.

According to Sparling, this is the first appearance of the four-line initials used here and the first book Morris printed in the sextodecimo format. Our copy has "Eyk" for "Eyck" on page 45, apparently indicating the first state of the text. A descendant of one of Manhattan's oldest families, former owner J. Harsen Purdy was a member of the Grolier Club for 32 years.. 146 x 108 mm. (5 3/4 x 4 1/4"). 1 p.l., 68 pp. ONE OF 1,500 COPIES on paper (and 45 on vellum.).

ARMSTRONG, NEIL.) VERNE, JULES.
New York: F. M. Lupton, 1893. A Trip to the Moon signed by Neil Armstrong. 58 pp. Original wrappers. Several leaves stained, some wear. Printed on pulp paper. No. 36 of The Arm Chair Library, a ten cent weekly. Half morocco case. Signed by Neil Armstrong, first man to walk on the moon. This classic of science fiction, turned into scientific fact by Armstrong and the Apollo 11 mission, was first published as De la Terre à la Lune in 1865. Verne’s reputation as the inventor of the science fiction novel rests primarily on From the Earth to the Moon. Verne’s novel, set in post-Civil War America, presents the tale of the development and financing of a grand scheme to launch a manned vehicle to go to the Moon. The book was eerily accurate in its predictions concerning the feat. Verne described a three-man crew launched from Florida in a cylindro-conical vehicle called the Columbiad (Apollo 11’s was the Columbia). Like Apollo 11, the vehicle used retrorockets, the men experienced weightlessness, and they returned from the Moon and ultimately splashed down in the Pacific. During his return from the Moon, Neil Armstrong spoke to the people of Earth, stating in part, “A hundred years ago, Jules Verne wrote a book about a voyage to the Moon. His spaceship, Columbia, took off from Florida and landed in the Pacific Ocean after completing a trip to the Moon. It seems appropriate to us to share with you some of the reflections of the crew as the modern-day Columbia completes its rendezvous with the planet Earth and the same Pacific Ocean tomorrow ” Verne underscored his emphasis on scienc … [Click Below for Full Description]
