        Where the Wild Things Are.

      New York: Harper & Row, 1963 - Oblong quarto. Original cloth-backed pictorial paper boards. With the Sendak designed dust jacket. Housed in a grey cloth slipcase. Trivial bump to the top edge but an excellent copy in the nicked and lightly spotted, price-clipped dust jacket with a number of brown marks from some liquid having been splashed. Illustrated by Sendak. First edition, first printing, first issue. There seem to be multiple issues of the first printing of this elusive and important book. Variations in price occur throughout the later states but have no bearing on the status of the true first issue. Primacy is established through the text of the blurb which, as in the present copy, makes no mention of the Caldecott Award bestowed upon the book on publication. The winning of such a prestigious prize compelled the publishers to recall the entire edition and change the text on the dust wrapper to include the achievement. Copies therefore with the original blurb are rare and are indubitably the earliest. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Outsider #3 (Inscribed by Charles Bukowski)

      New Orleans: Loujon Press, 1963. Original wraps. Near Fine. INSCRIBED BY CHARLES BUKOWSKI on the front pink tissue-guard (to fellow writer Dan Georgakas). A very sharp copy to boot of the 3rd issue (of only 4 all told) of this highly-influential small press poetry magazine. Published by the formidable Loujon Press of New Orleans (the imprint of John and Gypsy Lou Webb), Outsider #3 is hand-printed and features a long "section dedicated to the poet Charles Bukowski, selected by the editors as deservedly the most inevitable recipient of The Outsider's first annual 'outsider-of-the-year' award (1962)". Beyond this tribute, the Webbs have also given Bukowski this issue's cover, with a wonderful, gritty black-and-white photo of the poet just below a cryptic painting of Gypsy Lou Webb (by David Pallock). Apart from Bukowski, this issue also includes work by Kenneth Patchen, Henry Miller, William Burroughs, Gary Snyder, Robert Creeley, Harold Norse, et al. Solid and Near Fine in its pictorial wrappers, with just a bit of tanning at the preliminaries. Bukowski of course would go on to do 2 highly-regarded signed/limiteds for John and Gypsy Lou Webb in the the early to mid 60s ("It Catches My Heart in Its Hands" and "Crucifix in a Deathhand") but his signature, certainly not scarce in itself, is surprisingly uncommon in this incarnation.

        Abbildungen Herzoglich-Braunschweigischer Gestüt-Pferde ... 1tes Heft.Braunschweig, 1827-1828. Oblong 1mo (47.5 x 63 cm). First instalment of 6 lithographed plates of horses, plus 1 additional lithographed view, all beautifully coloured by a contemporary hand with highlights in gum arabic, and including two with the captions and artist's name in manuscript. All loosely preserved in a proof state of the original publisher's lithographed paper wrappers, including a list of plates. Preserved in a modern portfolio.

      Bibliotheca Hippologica I.H. Anderhub (1963), 238 (this set?); WorldCat (2 copies, incl. 1 of the first instalment only); not in Bibl. hippologica Johan Dejager; Huth; Mennessier de la Lance; Podeschi; for Pirscher: Thieme & Becker XXVII, p. 90. Beautifully hand-coloured proof states, with occasional additions in ink, of the very rare first instalment of a series of prints of the Duke of Braunschweig's (1804-1873) stud horses, plus an additional view of the Harzburg stud farm not included in the list of plates printed on the back wrapper. The first horse depicted is Mirza, a "Silver grey national Arabian with red spots on his left shoulder, presented to the King of England by the Shah of Persia in 1819. As the Persian envoy assured the King, this was the noblest and most excellent Arabian ever to have stood in his master's stables". The other illustrations show mainly descendants of Mirza, who was transferred to the Ducal stables in 1821.The plate of Mirza would finally appear newly lithographed in reverse with a completely different background, two others would have their background changed and the other three would have only minor changes to the background or none at all. Only plate three contains its final plate number. Even the lithographed wrapper is in a proof state and doesn't include the coat of arms that would appear on the final publication. While the first instalment is already very rare, the second and last instalments are extremely rare, known from only two or three copies.Possibly the set from the impressive horse library of I.H. Anderhub, the only set known to have coloured plates. Like our copy it includes 7 plates, the 6 from the original instalment plus 1 additional, and although it doesn't mention any proofs or manuscript additions it could be erroneously described, as the manuscript additions are very subtle. When auctioned in 1963 it already had a reserve price of 2600 Deutsche Mark, the second most expensive item of the auction.No known copy of the final publication are coloured, and because the present are proofs, it is possible it was presented to Duke of Braunschweig himself.Slightly browned, some minor fraying to the extremities of the leaves and a few specks, otherwise in very good condition. Front and back wrappers separated, slightly frayed along the extremities and a couple minor smudges, but still good.

In-4 p., legatura edit. in p. marocchino oasis verde con titolo e contorno in oro sul piatto anter., sovrac. trasparente protettiva, tagli super. dorati, astuccio con cuffie in pelle, pp. 345,(5), frontespizio inciso da Reynolds Stone, ornato da 114 xilografie - tratte da "Epistole et Evangelii" del 1495, create da Bartolomeo di Giovanni - nuovamente incise da Bruno Bramanti. I quattro Vangeli sono stati tradotti dal greco dal Pontificio Istituto Biblico. Tiratura di 275 esempl. su carta a mano Magnani. Il ns., 31, fa parte dei 250 numerati 1-250. In perfetto stato. Cfr. Cat. Mardersteig,130: “L’edizione delle "Epistole et Evangelii", stampata a Firenze nel 1495 per Piero Pacini da Pescia da parte di Lorenzo de’ Morgiani e Giovanni di Magonza, è uno dei più rari e più belli incunaboli illustrati con xilografie.. Il testo italiano dell’originale comprende tutti i brani della Bibbia che si trovano nel "Missale Romanum"; questi sono illustrati con 164 xilografie, delle quali 22 rappresentano gli evangelisti e i profeti, mentre le restanti 142 xilografie sono illustrazioni per i testi del Vecchio e del Nuovo Testamento. Di queste, 110 fanno parte dei quattro Vangeli.. Tutte le xilografie però erano state incise su disegno dello stesso artista. Non c’è nessun documento che ci riveli il suo nome, tuttavia l’identità stilistica di queste illustrazioni con l’opera di Bartolomeo di Giovanni - alunno e collaboratore di Domenico Ghirlandajo - è talmente evidente che può essergli attribuita anche quest’importante opera illustrata”.

        Buildings, Plans, and Designs

      1963. First Edition . Signed. WRIGHT, Frank Lloyd. Buildings, Plans, and Designs. New York: Horizon, (1963). Large folio (16 by 25-1/2 inches), 100 loose plates as issued in original half black cloth portfolio with ribbon ties, accompanying text in original self-wrappers; original corrugated shipping carton. $4500.First edition in English of Frank Lloyd Wright’s first major publication, number 174B of 2600 copies—a grand portfolio of one hundred large folio plates of Wright’s earliest designs, including the Frederick C. Robie house (1909), “the finest of the Prairie houses.”The first period of Wright's career ""was one of bold invention and public acclaim. It reached its climax in 1910 with the [German] publication of his architectural drawings in an extraordinary pair of portfolios."" The young architect had come to Europe in 1909, invited by the German publisher Wasmuth and Professor Kuno Francke for the purpose of a cultural and ""artistic interchange"" (Sweeney, xv-xx). Buildings, Plans and Designs remained for many years virtually unknown in America, because a fire in 1914 had destroyed, not only Wright's home at Taliesin, but also that portion of the 1910 printing intended for American distribution. Wright authorized the publication of this edition in 1958, just a year before his death. Included are designs for 70 buildings and projects between 1893 and 1909, including the W.H. Winslow house (1893), the Unity Temple at Oak Park (1906) and the Frederick C. Robie house (1909), which ""has generally been regarded as the finest of the Prairie Houses"" (Roth, 463). ""Entire schools of architectural design and thought were in many cases founded on individual buildings or ideas presented in this folio"" (Sweeney). Despite Wright's popularity and the number of intervening years, this American edition is preceded only by the German-language editions and an extremely scarce Japanese translation. Sweeney 87. A fine copy of an impressive production in original shipping carton.

        The Favourite Game

      London: Secker & Warburg, 1963. First British edition, preceding both the Canadian and American publication. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Leonard Cohen on the title page. Near fine in an excellent dust jacket with a touch of rubbing and shelfwear. A nice example. "Is there any Canadian novel as compelling and as good as at capturing youthful anxieties as J. D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye? Absolutely. . . . Leonard Cohen's first novel, The Favorite Game" (Globe & Mail). Paul Quarrington said "[t]he Favorite Game is a morally brave book, intimate and unflinching. . . . Leonard Cohen sustains the highest level of poetic craftsmanship throughout," and The Observer added "[h]e is a writer of terrific energy and color, a Rabelaisian comic and a visualizer of memorable scenes." The Calgary Albertan concluded that "[i]t is the kind of book that becomes a law unto itself, simply because there is nothing with which to compare it."

Anderhub (1963), 238 (this set?); WorldCat (2 copies, incl. 1 of the first instalment only); not in Bibl. hippologica Johan Dejager; Huth; Mennessier de la Lance; Podeschi; for Pirscher: Thieme & Becker XXVII, p. 90. Beautifully hand-coloured proof states, with occasional additions in ink, of the very rare first instalment of a series of prints of the Duke of Braunschweig's (1804-1873) stud horses, plus an additional view of the Harzburg stud farm not included in the list of plates printed on the back wrapper. The first horse depicted is Mirza, a "Silver grey national Arabian with red spots on his left shoulder, presented to the King of England by the Shah of Persia in 1819. As the Persian envoy assured the King, this was the noblest and most excellent Arabian ever to have stood in his master's stables". The other illustrations show mainly descendants of Mirza, who was transferred to the Ducal stables in 1821.The plate of Mirza would finally appear newly lithographed in reverse with a completely different background, two others would have their background changed and the other three would have only minor changes to the background or none at all. Only plate three contains its final plate number. Even the lithographed wrapper is in a proof state and doesn't include the coat of arms that would appear on the final publication. While the first instalment is already very rare, the second and last instalments are extremely rare, known from only two or three copies.Possibly the set from the impressive horse library of I.H. Anderhub, the only set known to have coloured plates. Like our copy it includes 7 plates, the 6 from the original instalment plus 1 additional, and although it doesn't mention any proofs or manuscript additions it could be erroneously described, as the manuscript additions are very subtle. When auctioned in 1963 it already had a reserve price of 2600 Deutsche Mark, the second most expensive item of the auction.No known copy of the final publication are coloured, and because the present are proofs, it is possible it was presented to Duke of Braunschweig himself.Slightly browned, some minor fraying to the extremities of the leaves and a few specks, otherwise in very good condition. Front and back wrappers separated, slightly frayed along the extremities and a couple minor smudges, but still good.

      Abbey, England 233; Bigmore & Wyman II, pp. 297-301; Printing and the mind of man (1963), part 2, 141. First and only edition of a beautiful, important and much sought practical manual of "decorative" printing (fine printing, colour printing, decorative ornament and illustration) compiled by the English printer and wood-engraver William Savage (1770-1843). It discusses printing presses, presswork (including the first clear and detailed description of make-ready), ink, types, paper and especially colour printing from multiple woodblocks, and is an essential reference for practicing fine printers, for the study of early 19th-century practice and for anyone with a practical, historical or bibliophile interest in colour printing. It is a pioneering work of colour printing, showing the author's latest experimental techniques and materials. The wood-engraved illustration plates, some from designs by A.W. Callcott, John Varley, John Thurston, (Thomas?) Willemont and W.H. Brooke, show a wide variety of subjects and demonstrate the effects that can be achieved with different colours.One of the 127 copies printed on Demy wove paper. A front endleaf has the handwritten signature of William Savage, accompanied by the copy number 58. With a bookplate on the front paste-down. Lacking the plate with the Earl Spencer's arms and one text leaf, but otherwise a very good copy, with the fore-edge and foot margins untrimmed. Some leaves slightly browned or faintly stained along the outer edge of the margins, not approaching the text or images. Spine and boards with faded patches. A pioneering work of colour printing and an essential reference for early 19th-century printing practices, with an emphasis on fine printing.
