        Hummingbirds and Orchids of Mexico

      Editorial Fournier, Mexico City 1963 - This is a very good hardcover copy in a good only remnant of the dust jacket. The jacket front panel only survives, and it has edge-wear, creases, light soil. Grey cloth covers clean overall but some soiling to bottom of spine. Completely clean inside. First few pages have a soft vertical crease, and top right corner bumped, otherwise very good throughout. This book is effectively the first actual publication of Rafael Montes de Oca's great 19th century work. He was unable to arrange publication in his lifetime, and only the chance appearance of a portfolio of his prints about 75 years after his death, made it possible in 1963. This book was published as a limited numbered edition of 3000 copies: 1500 in English and 1500 in Spanish. Editing and foreword by Carolina Amor de Fournier. Introduction and texts on the hummingbirds by Rafael Martin del Campo. English translation by Norman Pelham Wright. 59 spectacular colored plates reproduced from original watercolors in the Galería de Arte Mexicano, México, D.F. painted by Rafael Montes de Oca from 1874-1878. A beautiful production. 16" high X 12" wide, 34 pages of text. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Collector.

      London, Jonathan Cape 1963. - First edition (first issue, in variant cloth colour). Hardcover. Neat ownership signature at the top corner of the fly-leaf, and date (1964) at the bottom corner, o/w fine in very fine price-clipped dustjacket (all first issue copies have had clipped jackets) with a couple tiny closed tears at the head of the spine, wonderfully illustrated in colour by Tom Adams. The author's important first novel, a psychological thriller about a repressed clerk and butterfly collector who spends a fortune won at the football pools on the kidnapping of a female art student (a similar theme has been used subsequently by Thomas Harris in "The Silence of the Lambs", and by scores of modern writers of pyschological thrillers, usually with less emphasis on the pyschology and atmosphere and more on the perverse violence and forensics). Made into a William Wyler film in 1965, starring Terence Stamp and Samantha Eggar. This is a copy of the exceedingly rare first issue, in charcoal-coloured papered boards, no top edge stain, of which less than a handful have been noted in the last 40 years. It is evident this was a trial or variant binding, rather than an issue of any substantial number. The charcoal-papered binding was a standard "house cloth" for Cape at the time (used on most of the Ian Fleming 'Bond' books, for example), and it is probable the bindery began the production of the case in the charcoal colour before directions were given for the rust-coloured binding and matching top edge stain of the standard issue, which is perhaps a slightly better match for the predominately cream-coloured jacket. On the other hand, the variant charcoal-coloured boards match the large key in Adams' illustration, as well as the black lettering of "The Collector" on the front panel and spine of the jacket, so the chance first issue is every bit as aesthetically pleasing as the standard issue. The bibliographical importance of all this is debatable, but the scarcity of the first issue is not in question. Only a few fervent Fowles collectors have spotted copies in the last four decades, and the Marie de France epigraph which graces "The Collector" can be applied ironically to the first issue's elusiveness: "Que for aus ne le sot riens nee" (No one knew of it but them"). The cornerstone of a complete Fowles collection. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Lippincott, Philadelphia 1963 - His first book, winner of the Faulkner Foundation Award for best first novel of the year and the debut of one of the towering American writers of the postwar era. Small lower corner bump, else a fine copy with a rich top stain, in a near fine dust jacket with some light rubbing, but no fading to the gold on the lower spine as is so frequently the case. A very nice copy of a book that seldom shows up in such condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
