        A Sixteenth Century Mexican Broadside from the collection of Emilio Valtón. Described, with a Checklist, by Edwin H. Carpenter.

      Los Angeles: Dawson's Book Shop, 1965. Los Angeles:: Dawson's Book Shop, 1965., 1965. Folio. 14 pp. Title printed in red & black; front pocket. Original quarter beige cloth with blue-gray boards and a gilt-device on upper cover, printed spine label. Occidental/ Lawrence Clark Powell (gift) bookplate. Fine. LIMITED EDITION of 140 copies, designed and printed by Saul & Lillian Marks at the Plantin Press. Valtón owned thirty-nine pre-1600 broadsheets, listed here by Ed Carpenter (1915-1995). This leaf book contains an original printed leaf from the first press in the New World. It is known that all copies of this edition differ, some printed leaves being more desirable. // The present specimen is a promissory note, opening with the printed phrase, "Sepan quantos estra carta vieren come yo …" translates closely to "Know by all men that this letter …" The accompanying essay describes that similar legal documents were among the first printed documents in Mexico. This was because certain legal phraseology allowed for a document to print the standard words needed and then add the necessary text in manuscript, as with this specimen. Dr. Emilio Valtón was the first bibliographer to collect this extremely early and otherwise ignored form of printing in Spain. // "Carta de pago" [power of attorney]. Gothic type. Approx. 9 x 12 ½ inches. 44 lines. Printed on one side. With a leading capital letter S followed by the phrase cited above, "Sepan…" followed by seven lines of manuscript text. Then, in printed form begins, "Generalmente para a en todos mis pleytos, causas ceuiles y criminal les mouidos y poz mouer, que yo be y tengo con qual esquier personas, y las tales y otras quale …" The verso also has a nine-line manuscript with elaborate signature. By inference this piece is attributed to Pedro Ocharte. // See: Valtón, Emilio. Impresos Mexicanos del siglo XVI (Incunables Americanos) en la Biblioteca. 1935.

        Venti quartine di Omar Khayyam

      Roma: Bestetti, 1965. Cartella contenente venti incisioni originali di Aldo Pagliacci, numerate e firmate dall'Artista, che illustrano le diverse quartine. 42x33 cm.Tela editoriale con titoli al dorso. Custodia cartonata con alcune abrasioni e ombreggiature. Interno ottimo. Tiratura di 72 esemplari numerati. [M244] Aldo Pagliacci (San Benedetto del Tronto, 1913 - Forio d'Ischia, 1990), pittore incisore e liutaio, crebbe a Pesaro dove, dimostrando innato talento, intraprese gli studi artistici e, all'età di soli 20 anni, aveva già esposto  alla Biennale di Venezia e alla Quadriennale di Roma. Partecipò alla campagna coloniale in Etiopia venendo rinchiuso in un campo di concentramento in Rhodesia, esperienza che segnerà per sempre la sua arte. Spirito inquieto girovagò a lungo prediligendo l'America Latina, come testimoniano i soggiorni in Brasile, Argentina, Cile, Perù, Messico, Bolivia, Venezuela. Le sue esperienze di vita arricchirono sempre più la sua arte e le sue opere vennero esposte in gallerie e musei del Sud e del Centro America. I suoi lavori sono stati particolarmente apprezzati anche negli ambienti artistici degli Stati Uniti d'America. La critica spesso lo ha accostato ad uno dei maestri dell'arte del Novecento, Giorgio de Chirico.

Inscribed by the author in a contemporary hand on the front free endpaper, "To John Sheddan Cormac McCarthy." Near fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. The novels of Cormac McCarthy owe much to William Faulkner, especially in their "use of dialect and concrete sense of the world— a debt McCarthy does not dispute. ‘The ugly fact is books are made out of books,’ he says. ‘The novel depends for its life on the novels that have been written.' "Cormac McCarthy is expert in generating an emotional climate, in suggesting instead of in stating, in creating a long succession of brief, dramatic scenes described with flashing visual impact" (The New York Times).

Grey cloth, as new, 7 vols. bound in 6, illustrated with 473 b.w. tipped in reprint photos, reprint of the original edition, English text, 21.4 x 31 cm., the complete run. * * FIRST & ONLY COMPLETE REPRINT EDITION * * *** *** *** . . . THE RARE COMPLETE RUN OF . . . THE FAR EAST: AN ILLUSTRATED FORTNIGHTLY . . . THE LEGENDARY AND COMPREHENSIVE . . . NEWSPAPER OF THE FOREIGN COMMUNITY . . . WITH ARTICLES AND POTOGRAPHS OF JAPAN & CHINA . . *** This the now RARE. This is the FIRST & ONLY COMPLETE REPRINT of the original edition, with 473 b.w. tipped-in reproduction photographs, a complete run From May, 1870 through August, 1875. . *** A REMARKABLE PHOTOGRAPH-ILLUSTRATED PERIOD NEWSPAPER: . THE FAR EAST was remarkable in that it was illustrated with pasted-in, original photographs, at a time when photomechanical reproduction was still in its infancy. . With photos of Japan, Hong Kong, Canton, and others. . The newspaper's in-house photographer was the Austrian, Michael Moser, but Black, an amateur photographer himself, supplemented Moser's images with his own. . Significant photographers whose work also appeared in the newspaper included Uchida Kuichi, the elder Suzuki Shin'ichi and William Saunders. . Black noted some of the early difficulties of publishing THE FAR EAST, the deleterious effects of the local weather on photographs, the inferiority and rarity of proper photographic chemicals and paper, and the poor quality [in his eyes] of the images produced by Japanese photographers. . Until 1873, Black was unable or unwilling to pay the going rate for photographs, which must have particularly discouraged Western photographers from contributing. However, from 1873 on he began to pay an "honorarium" for the photographs he published. . From July 1874, The Far East was published in Shanghai. Accordingly, the photographic subjects appearing in the newspaper were now predominantly Chinese. There is no evidence of further publication of The Far East after December 1878. . *** THE SUBJECTS COVERED: . This work covered history, arts, and manners and customs of Japan. A marvelous resource for period activities in Yokohama, and throughout Japan's foreign community. Enhanced with profuse period photographs of all concerned. A virtual Who's Who among both foreigners and Japanese. . Keen primary resource on things both Japanese & Chinese during the early period of foreign contact in Japan after Perry opened that country to the World in 1852. . The great value of this resource is that it recorded the latest news, utilizing original period photos. This was a very interesting newspaper ! . The set covers the period 1870-1875. . The original printing is quite RARE seldom found complete with all its pages & photographs. . *** WHO WAS JOHN R. BLACK:[1826-1880]: Black was a Scottish publisher, journalist, writer, photographer, and singer. Much of his career was spent in China and Japan where he published several newspapers including The Far East. . Black was a Scotsman, and an Australian second. He spoke Japanese fluently, and most of the time lived and dressed as a Japanese. He was the proprietor and editor of the NISSHIN SHINJISHI, the first newspaper worthy of name ever published d in Japan. He was also later the editor of the JAPAN HEARLD and the JAPAN GAZETTE, as well of the author of one of the most fascinating set of books on early Japan: YOUNG JAPAN, see below for other details. . In 1854 Black passed up the possibility of a career as an officer in the Royal Navy and moved with his wife to Australia. When his initial business ventures failed, he embarked on a singing career, touring Australia, India, China, and finally Japan. Performances in Hong Kong and Shanghai in 1864 received enthusiastic reviews in the local press, as did his performances in Yokohama in June and July of the same year. Though he had no intention of staying in Japan, he was to remain there for another eleven or more years. . JAPAN YEARS: In 1864, Al

JAPAN YEARS: In 1864, Albert Hansard, owner of the Japan Herald [among the first English-language newspapers in Japan], offered Black a job in his auction business, and in 1865 offered him a partnership in the newspaper. In 1867, the partnership of Hansard and Black declared bankruptcy, but that same year Black founded his own newspaper, the JAPAN GAZETTE, a successful daily evening paper offering coverage of the reform movements of the Bakumatsu. . He then founded THE FAR EAST in 1870, with a view to promoting "goodwill and brotherhood between the outer world and the subjects of the most ancient imperial dynasty of the world". The first issue appeared on 30 May 1870. . CHINA YEARS: In 1876 Black founded the FAR EAST ART AGENCY in Shanghai to sell art works and photographs, including portfolios and albums. He launched the SHANGHAI MERCURY in 1879, a newspaper that continued to be published for 40 years. Black returned to Yokohama, where he died on 11 June 1880, leaving a widow and three children. His son Henry James Black [1858-1923] became well known in Japan under the name Kairakutei Black [Kairakutei Burakku]) as the country's only foreign-born Rakugoka, or public storyteller. .

        Three original Ladybird illustrations from People at Work

      Three original Ladybird gouache and watercolour on board illustrations from People at Work- The Miner, Series 606B, Book 8 comprising images 6, 21 & 24; all 26.9cm x 17.7cm. John Berry (1920-2009) served as a war artist during the Second World War and was one of the chief illustrators for Ladybird Books. His pictures for the 20 books of the Ladybird People at Work series form a complete visual record of British industry in the early 1960s - an age of industrial prosperity where potteries, coal mines and car manufacture were flourishing. Berry attended Hammersmith College of Art before winning a scholarship to the Royal Academy. To his lifelong regret, the outbreak of war prevented him from taking up his scholarship. He went into the RAF and was sent to the Middle East. There, as part of a holding unit waiting to go into Tobruk, he offered to make up a poster advertising a national day of prayer. The artwork came to the attention of Air Marshal Arthur Tedder, who promptly had Berry seconded to the army as a war artist. Berry was the only war artist drawn from the ranks. While serving, Berry made the acquaintance of a Major James Riddell, who announced that he wrote children's books and that, once they were demobilised, he would like Berry to illustrate them. Their first joint venture, Once Upon a Time, appeared in 1947. Through Riddell, too, Berry began to paint portraits on commission, travelling all over Britain. At the very end of the 1950s he joined Ladybird. The first book he was to illustrate was The Ladybird Book of London. In the 1980s Berry returned to portraiture - President George Bush Sr and Diana, Princess of Wales, were among his subjects. Fine.

Inscribed by the author in a contemporary hand on the front free endpaper, "To John Sheddan Cormac McCarthy." Near fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. The novels of Cormac McCarthy owe much to William Faulkner, especially in their "use of dialect and concrete sense of the world— a debt McCarthy does not dispute. ‘The ugly fact is books are made out of books,' he says. ‘The novel depends for its life on the novels that have been written.' "Cormac McCarthy is expert in generating an emotional climate, in suggesting instead of in stating, in creating a long succession of brief, dramatic scenes described with flashing visual impact" (The New York Times).

Possibly run off from the same plates as the first edition, with this copyright page still reading "First Published 1945," though this edition appeared in a larger format than the original (9 1/8'' x 5 5/8'' vs. 7 1/8 x 5"). A virtually pristine, unread copy, completely free of foxing and wear, in Fine jacket. Bloomfield A1(b). Originally published, by the Fortune Press, in 1945. This pirated edition, limited to 500 copies, was issued in advance of the authorized Faber & Faber release, which appeared in 1966 but was swiftly withdrawn when Larkin discovered its existence. By 1972, according to Bloomfield, the publisher still had 220 copies in stock, but these had no dust jackets, which "had inadvertently been destroyed." Larkin's first major collection of [31] poems, The North Ship is often criticised for its high-flown Yeatsian rhetoric, but it is, essentially, a wartime collection of poems and its significance lies primarily in its elegiac lyricism and withdrawn but tenacious sense of survival."

Publisher's (unclipped) dust jacket designed by Richard Chopping. Binding very lightly 'cocked' otherwise a near fine copy in an excellent dust jacket with a few very small closed edge tears."The Man with the Golden Gun was the last novel to be written by Ian Fleming, who died before making his final revisions. These were carried out by Jonathan Cape stalwarts William Plomer and Michael Howard, his regular script typist Jean Frampton, and the author Kingsley Amis, who was hired as somewhat of an authority on Bond, having been in correspondence with Fleming earlier in the year over the reference book The James Bond Dossier, which was about to be published by Cape. (Gilbert, p.420).The Man with the Golden Gun is the twelfth novel (and thirteenth book) of Ian Fleming's James Bond series. It was first published by Jonathan Cape in the UK on 1 April 1965, eight months after the author's death. The novel was not as detailed or polished as the others in the series, leading to poor but polite reviews. Despite that, the book was a best-seller.A year after James Bond's final confrontation with Ernst Stavro Blofeld, while on a mission in Japan, a man claiming to be Bond appears in London and demands to meet the head of the Secret Service, M. Bond's identity is confirmed, but during his debriefing interview with M, Bond tries to kill him with a cyanide pistol; the attempt fails. The Service learns that after destroying Blofeld's castle in Japan, Bond suffered a head injury and developed amnesia. Having lived as a Japanese fisherman for several months, Bond traveled into the Soviet Union to learn his true identity. While there, he was brainwashed and assigned to kill M upon returning to England. Now de-programmed, Bond is given a chance to again prove his worth as a member of the 00 section following the assassination attempt. M sends Bond to Jamaica and gives him the seemingly impossible mission of killing Francisco "Pistols" Scaramanga, a Cuban assassin who is believed to have killed several British secret agents. Scaramanga is known as "The Man with the Golden Gun" because his weapon of choice is a gold-plated Colt .45 revolver, which fires silver-jacketed solid-gold bullets…Gilbert, A13a, 1.2.
