        Posledovanie na den' s[via]tyia Paskhi i na vsiu svetluiu sedmitsu [=Order for the Holy Day of Easter and for the whole of Easter week]. Kiev, Pechersk Lavra (Monastery of the Caves), [ca. 1801]. 8vo in 4s (18.5×11.5 cm). Easter liturgy in Old Church Slavonic, with title-page and about 20 other pages printed in red and black, the title in a woodcut border and with a woodcut Paschal lamb, a full-page engraving of Jesus's Resurrection on the back of the title-page, and all pages after the title-page with borders made up of 4 woodcut strips. Set in 3 sizes of Old Slavonic poluustav cyrillic type. Printed on laid paper with a blue-green cast. Contemporary gold-panel-stamped and gold-tooled calf by the Kiev Monastery of the Caves, with a panel stamp of Jesus on the front board and a panel stamp of Maria on the back, gilt edges.

      For the Kiev bindery: S. A. Klepikov, "Historical notes on Ukrainian bookbinding", in: The book collector, 15 (1966), pp. 135-142. A Russian Orthodox service book for Easter and the week following it, in the Old Church Slavonic language, printed, published and bound at the Pechersk Lavra (Monastery of the Caves) in Kiev. The monastery was established in the 11th century. After the fall of Constantinople in 1453 the Orthodox Churches in Russia and Ukraine developed independently. The power of the Czars allowed the Russian Orthodox Church to dominate, so that the Ukrainian Church came under the Moscow Patriarchate in 1686. The Monastery of the Caves is therefore now Ukrainian Orthodox, but fell under the authority of the Russian Orthodox Church when the present service book was published. It nevertheless had its own traditions and rites, so that the present book should be regarded as part of the Ukrainian heritage.The only other copy we have located is at Amsterdam University Library, one of three Easter service books by the Kiev Pechersk Lavra recorded on WorldCat, all octavos. With a lengthy cyrillic inscription on an endleaf. The sewing is somewhat loose and as a result a few leaves are tattered at the edges. There are occasional minor smudges and drops of candle wax. Much of the gold-tooling has rubbed off the binding and the spine is slightly damaged. In spite of these minor defects, the book is in good condition, especially for a book of this nature.

      London: Gollancz, 1966. Lovecraft, H. P. AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS and other novels of terror. Selected with an introduction by August Derleth. London: Gollancz, 1966. First English Edition. NEAR FINE copy in NEAR FINE priced dustjacket, the tiniest of blemishes to both book and jacket but it has exceptionally good eye appeal without any of the usual problems that plague the bright yellow Gollancz dustwrappers of the era. INSCRIBED BY AUGUST DERLETH on the front-free endpaper to a well-known collector; we're not aware of Derleth having signed many other First English Lovecraft editions. This is the first time we've handled one in twenty years of selling a lot of Lovecraft so we suspect there's some genuine scarcity here. This is an impressively fat anthology for English readers including THE CASE OF CHARLES DEXTER WARD, THE SHUNNED HOUSE & THE DREAM-QUEST OF UNKNOWN KADATH as well as the title novel and four other novellas.. .

        Catalogue des estoilles australes. Ou supplement du catalogue de Thycho, qui montre les longitudes & latitudes des estoilles fixes du Pole Antartique, lesquelles ont esté cachées à Tycho dans l'orison d'Uranibourg, calculées avec un soin tres-exact suivant leurs distances, & corrigées jusques à la fin de l'année 1677. Avec les observations faites en l'Isle de Sainte Helene ...Paris, Jean Baptiste Coignard, 1679. 12mo in 6s. With each page in a frame of thin rules, 4 woodcut decorated initials (2 series of the same size), a decoration made up of 2 vine-leaf fleurons on the title-page, 12 abstract (rather than pictorial) zodiac signs, and numerous letterpress tables. Contemporary French sprinkled calf, gold-tooled spine and board edges. The boards are 5 mm thick, but each has a large panel hollowed out on the inside, perhaps to hold astronomical aids of some sort.

      Armitage, Edmond Halley, (1966), pp. 31-32; Cook, Edmond Halley: charting the heavens and the seas (1997), p. 78; DSB VI, pp. 67-72. Rare first French edition of the first major work by Edmond Halley (1656-1742) translated from the Latin by the astronomer Augustin Royer. A precocious child, Halley became assistant to John Flamsteed at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich in 1675. In 1676 he travelled to the remote South Atlantic island Saint Helena in order to set up an observatory where he set up a more than 7-metre telescope and a sextant with a radius of more than 1 1/2 metres (with telescopic sights) on the top of a 680 metre hill there and map the stars of the southern hemisphere, still not well known in Europe. He also observed a transit of Mercury. On his return to England in 1678, at the age of 22, he published his important observations in the first (Latin) edition of the present work, Catalogus stellarum Australium, sive supplementum catalogi Tychonici, London, 1678. It was a pioneering work not only because it covered the southern hemisphere, but because it was the first printed star catalogue to give telescopically determined positions. According to Cook, the present French translation was published as a supplement to Royer's Carte du ciel, also published in 1679, which covered only stars observable from Europe. Also in 1678 Halley drew up a planisphere, and the Royal Society, impressed by both, elected him as a fellow. Halley, astronomer, geophysicist, mathematician, meteorologist and physicist, was one of the most innovative thinkers of his day, bringing theory and practice together. He is best known as an early adherent of Newton's idea that comets following the same laws as planets, and he correctly concluded that at least some followed elliptical orbits, while Newton had favoured parabolic paths. By computing their orbits from contemporary and historical accounts he successfully predicted the 1758 return of the one now known as Halley's comet.Although Cook calls for an accompanying planisphere, it and a plate with four figures rarely appear as part of the book, whether in the Latin or the French edition, and the book itself does not call for either. They appear to have been separate publications, sometimes found accompanying the book. The hollowed boards of the present binding may have been intended to hold them as loosely inserted folded additions (there is no sign that anything was ever attached). The Earl of Maccelsfield's copy, with his 1860 armorial bookplate, and his embossed stamp on the title-page and 2 following leaves. The second Earl of the second creation, George Parker (ca. 1697-1764) was a leading astronomer and president of the Royal Society. In good condition. With a chip at the top of spine and the inges worn. First French edition of Edmond Halley's first major work.

        Autograph Letter Signed, 2 pp on one 8vo sheet of "The Century Association" stationery, New York City, Feb. 9, 1966

      - He writes to Leon Edel, Henry James biographer. "May I intrude upon your scholarship if it extends to Henry James senior. I want to use a quotation which F. O. Matthiessen gives partially on p. 13 of 'The James Family' and I have no idea where to find it. Matthiessen writes, 'probably James best-known remark is that "to a right-minded man" a crowded horse-car is "the nearest approach to heaven upon earth"." Evans explains he seeks the exact quotation noting that, "F. O. M. does not give a hint of his source.knowing your erudition I do hope you may have in not take down any books yourself for my quest. I'll do that." He signs in full, "Walker Evans." Evans found the actual quote and used it in his photographic portraits of New York City riders titled, "Many Are Called." The correct quote reads: "To a right-minded man, a crowded Cambridge horse car is the nearest approach to heaven upon earth." [Walker Evans, "A Penitent Spy," Rathbone, 2000]. Evans had left his post as editor of Fortune Magazine in 1965 and joined the faculty of Yale University. In 1966, the year of this letter, his photographic study of New York City subway riders was published. "Many Are Called," (1938-41) was photographed with hidden camera, first published almost 30 a after the images were captured, and reissued in 2004. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Piano Concerto (1965 -- 1966)

      Folio (15" X 20"). Stiff brown manila wrappers with brown cloth tape spine and matching outer edges. 190pp. Very good. Quite minor edgewear to outer wrappers (only); mild age toning to text block. Tight and attractive and exceptionally unusual copy of this orchestral piece, being the dedicatee's personal copy. This "edition" is a facsimile of Wuorinen's complete handwritten score, likely produced in only a handful of copies. The piece was commissioned by James Dixon, conductor of the University of Iowa Orchestra, who conducted the premiere performance with Wuorinen himself as soloist in May 1966. The title page bears a printed "to James Dixon" at the top, and below his printed name, Wuorinen boldly inscribes it in pencil "For James, with deepest appreciation / and gratitude. / Charles." Below this, Dixon adds in pencil, "Premiere Iowa City / May 1966 / Recorded Royal Philharmonic / London / Sept 9, 1968." Dixon's extensive pencilled notes, additions, corrections and so on appear throughout the entire score -- an intriguing insight into the conductor's creative process, and almost certainly accomplished with input from the composer himself. CHARLES WUORINEN (born 1938) is one of America's most prolific and versatile composers, the youngest ever to be awarded for Pulitzer Prize for Music (for "Time's Encomium," 1970). JAMES DIXON (1929-2007) was a well-known Iowa orchestra conductor and music educator. A choice copy: The dedicatee’s personal copy of a working score, used in the premiere performance and inscribed by its Pulitzer Prize-winning composer.

Godard called Hawks "the greatest American artist." An uncommon signature on a volume of an important series of film criticism written at the time the director's reputation as an auteur was still very much being established.From the collection of noted cinephile and collector Pierre Goulliard, who spent decades in the latter half of the twentieth century obtaining inscriptions from the giants of European cinema.Near Fine in photo illustrated wrappers.

And I also think that some enterprising reporter will, at some time in the future, write a story on the vote frauds of 1960 which might have a great national impact. I suppose, of course, that additional time must expire so that such a work would not appear to cast a reflection on the Kennedy memory.

      c. 1966. Sheet size: 143 × 146 mm. Pen and ink on wove paper. Stamped on verso for publication in the Sunday Telegraph. The cartoons and illustrations of Nicolas Bentley (1907-1978) were part of the warp and weft of English popular culture in the 1950s and 60s. Never savage, though often waspishly accurate and exuding an urbane air of amusement at the foibles of his fellows, Bentley&#39;s work was familiar to the public from a wide variety of publications. Between 1952 and 1954 he drew regular cartoons for the weekly Time and Tide, and after that for the daily News Chronicle. Between 1958 and 1962 he drew topical cartoons for the Daily Mail under the title "Watch My Line." He also drew many portraits, in black and white line, of famous people, for various papers, including over sixty for the Sunday Telegraph, which began publication in February 1961.

        The Crying of Lot 49

      Philadelphia, PA & New York, NY: J. B. Lippincott Company, 1966. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Fine/Near Fine. The Crying of Lot the story of Oedipa Maas, a young woman who finds herself appointed executrix of a former lover&#39;s estate. This is annoying enough, but when it leads to the gradual revelation of the secret postal system of the outcasts..."(from rear flap) A first edition of Thomas Pynchon&#39;s second novel, published three years after his Faulkner First Novel Award-winning V. made a splash whose ripples still resonate. Another hauntingly humorous cult-popular classic by this uncatagorizable giant of twentieth & twenty-first century American literature. As Richard Poirier wrote at the end of his New York Times review when it was first published, "What is also noticeable here, and throughout the novel, is that the major character is really Pynchon himself, Pynchon&#39;s voice with its capacity to move from the elegy to the epic catalogue. The narrator sounds like a survivor looking through the massed wreckage of his civilization, "a salad of despair." That typically full of sadness, terror, love, and flamboyance. But then, how else should one imagine a tryst with America? And that is what this novel is." A very important item for any serious Pynchon collection, in relatively wonderful condition. Book very fine with very mild soiling & scratching to edges, very light wear, soiling & spotting to upper & lower edges of front, back covers & spine, very small bump at top right corner of front cover, interior almost mint with only very light browning to edges. Dust jacket in near-fine condition with very minor rubbing & moderate creasing at top right corner of front cover, moderate wear & soiling of back cover esp. vertically at or near edges, very small missing portion at lower spine, top appx. 1/16" horizontal portion of front & back covers neatly cut off (can be determined from jagged remains at spine), unclipped front & rear flaps in very fine condition with only very light browning & creasing at edges.
