This set bound in de luxe binding inquarter crushed green morocco, blind ruled raised bands, gilt spinetitles, (Cockerel style) marbled boards, in fine condition. (cgc) Thisis a fine press edition from the very rare 1802 edition; this edition isequally rare. The commander of the expedition was Don DionysioAlcala-Galiano, who was probably the author of this work. See Sabin69221. The text of the rare first edition is faithfully followed, printedon fine paper, and is accompanied by the same maps and plates. Howescalls this an "important voyage up the Pacific coast and the last to beundertaken by Spain ; written probably by the commander, Galiano, butattributed also to Jose de Espinosa y Tello. and to Cayetano Valdes. The Introduccion,' giving a splendid historical sketch of earlier Spanishexplorations in the same region, was the work of the maritime authority,[Martin Fernandez de] Navarrette." Henry R. Wagner suggests that the mapsare better in some respects than Vancouver's and were used by Humboldtas models for his Essai Politique sur le Royaume de la Nouvelle Espagne(1811). Exceptionally scarce, even in this Second Edition which wasproduced in thick card wraps, it is very rare in this binding. Strathern167(I); Howes (Gallano]. G18; Sabin 66221; Streeter 2458].

        The Cat in the Hat Comes Back

      New York: Random House, 1958. First edition. Octavo, original illustrated boards, pictorial endpapers. Inscribed by the author, "For Jason with kindest regards! Dr. Seuss." Fine in a near fine first issue dust jacket. The year after Theodore Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, broke new ground in children's books with The Cat in the Hat, he brought back the immediately popular character--with 26 little cats under his red-and-white stovepipe, not to mention the mysterious "Voom"--for a new madcap adventure. The title was the second from Beginner Books, Geisel's own imprint at Random House; in very little time, as that line's identifying logo, "the Cat's image would become synonymous with learning to read" (Cohen, 324).

Few marks to the spine and mild rubbing to edges of slipcase, otherwise a very good copy. Geoffrey Keynes writes in his Bibliographical Statement: "The Book of Urizen contains the first part of Blake's conception of the universal myth, recounting the story of the creation of the material world and of mankind, thus dealing with the problem of evil. Urizen, the God of Reason, is the Creator...Los is also introduced as the poetic genius and symbol of time since Reason cannot exist without Imagination. However from Los developed Pity, resulting in the division of his soul with the appearance of his Emanation, named Enitharmon, his female counterpart. The offspring of Los and Enitharmon is Orc, the Spirit of Revolt. Ultimately Urizen establishes religion and mankind becomes entangled in the web of religion as civilization emerges in Egypt". Blake's originally called the book The First Book of Urizen but when he composed the second part, he called it The Book of Ahania. Booklabel of Clarence B. Hanson, Jr.

        Spells and Philtres

      Sauk City, WI: Arkham House. Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket. 1958. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. SIGNED EDITION. (519 copies printed) This book is in Fine condition and has a Very Good+ to Near Fine- condition. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. There is some very beginning foxing to the endpapers. This copy has been signed by the author, with an inscription, on the front endpaper. The dust jacket has foxing to the rear cover along with some light ground-in dirt and some beginning bumping. "In 1920 Smith composed a celebrated long poem in blank verse, The Hashish Eater, or The Apocalypse of Evil which was published in Ebony and Crystal (1922).This was followed by a fan letter from H. P. Lovecraft, which was the beginning of 15 years of friendship and correspondence. With studied playfulness, Smith and Lovecraft borrowed each other's coinages of place names and the names of strange gods for their stories, though so different is Smith's treatment of the Lovecraft theme that it has been dubbed the "Clark Ashton Smythos."" "This is the first new book from the pen of the distinguished poet and short story writer, Clark Ashton Smith, in seven years. These poems by one of the foremost fantaisistes among contemporary writers will enchant and delight the lover of poetry and the macabre, for they are new ventures into the mystical half-world which beckons forever at the edge of awareness." ; Signed by Author .

      [Various places, including Boston, 1958. Bound volumes in modern three quarter morocco and boards, gilt-lettered spines. Separate issues in original wrappers. One wrapper issue with front wrapper detached and rear lacking, another with both wrappers detached but present. A few issues in bound volumes trimmed and mounted on stiff paper. Others with occasional archival repairs. All with old library marks, bound volumes with library attribution at toe of spine. Overall quite clean. Very good. A massive 109-issue run, beginning with the first issue, of this most durable and popular American almanac. The almanac was often the only reference work found in many American homes, and it provided both essential agricultural information and casual diversion. These issues contain notices regarding the courts of New England, calendars of college vacations, current events, poesy, literary bits, history, and planting, weather, and road conditions. The helpful hints regarding agriculture include articles on cultivation of corn, potatoes, carrots, and fruit trees; manuring; cure of diseases in crops and trees, and more. As times change, the text of the almanac keeps pace, offering insight into the evolution of the American domestic scene. As the almanac gained in popularity, sundry issue points were introduced as the almanac was printed in several different locations. While the vast majority of the present offering were printed in Boston, other places of publication include Brookline, Providence, and Dublin, New Hampshire. The title was formally changed to THE OLD FARMER'S ALMANAC... beginning with the issue for 1848. While many institutions possess runs of equal or greater size, they are uncommon in the market.

"Jacob de Wit war in seiner Zeit nicht nur der beste, sondern auch der produktivste niederländische Deckenmaler. Die hunderte von Zeichnungen, die von ihm erhalten sind, bestehen dann auch zu einem beträchtlichen Teil aus Deckenentwürfen. Wenn ein Plafondentwurf ausgeführt wurde, schrieb De Wit meistens auf die Rückseite der Zeichnung den Namen des Auftraggebers und das Jahr, in dem die Decke gemalt wurde. (Kat. "Alte Zeichnungen aus dem Kupferstichkabinett der Universität zu Leiden". Amsterdam, 1986, p. 260). Da dieser Vermerk bei der vorliegenden Zeichnung fehlt, ist es sehr gut möglich, daß dieser Deckenentwurf niemals in Malerei ausgeführt wurde. Eine Datierung ist nur annähernd zu geben, da de Wits stilistische Entwicklung sehr gleichmäßig verlief.

        Application of a technique for research and development program evaluation" in Operations Research 7 No. 5 September-October 1959, pp. 646-669. AND "Critical Path Planning and Scheduling" in Proceedings of the Eastern Joint Computer Conference Dec. 1-3, 1959, pp. 160-173

      FIRST EDITIONS IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF THE TWO PIONEERING TECHNIQUES FOR PROJECT PLANNING AND MONITORING, commonly called the Critical Path Method (CPM) and Project Evaluation Review Technique (PERT). Quite independently, both techniques were developed in the United States in the late 1950s. PERT is a statistical mathematics tool. Formal work on on it began in early 1958 with the objective of creating "a management method for handling the hundreds of contractors who would be designing, constructing and testing the POLARIS submarine and missile systems" for the Navy (Stretton, A Short History of Modern Project Management, PM World Today). It was designed specifically to analyze and represent the tasks involved to successfully complete any given project. "In the PERT network, the emphasis was… on project events or milestones instead of the project activities" (ibid). This meant that the methodology was able "to incorporate uncertainty by making it possible to schedule a project while not knowing precisely the details and durations of all the activities. It is more of an event-oriented technique rather than start- and completion-oriented, and is used more in projects where time is the major factor rather than cost. It is applied to very large-scale, one-time, complex, non-routine infrastructure and Research and Development projects" (Wikipedia). CPM, a term developed for marketing purposes, was developed between 1956 and 1959 in a 'think tank' group at E. I du Pont de Nemours and in conjunction with a group at Remington Rand Univac. Technically speaking, it is an algorithm employed for the scheduling of a set of project activities. Both CPM and PERT techniques are based on networks and both use the concept of critical paths and slack. The main differences are that while PERT is probabilistic, CPM is deterministic; while PERT is event-oriented, CPM is activity-oriented; while PERT analysis is concerned essentially with the time factor and does not usually consider costs, CPM analysis attempts to tease out the relationship between project duration and cost; while PERT is used for non-repetitive projects, CPM is used for repetitive ones; and while PERT can be analyzed statistically, with CPM statistical analysis is not applicable.
