        Sculptor's Daughter

      London: Ernest Benn Ltd., 1969. 175 pages. Sound copy with clean text pages. Hardcover backed in black with gilt titling, red tweed-looking boards. Top edge dyed red.

Dust jacket is priceclipped, sunned on spine, has library tapemarks to reverse that show on front, light wear to extremities, faint watermarks along edge (no effect to book). Still relatively presentable in new mylar cover. Overall a sturdy and serviceable copy of Tove Jansson's enchanting, and regrettably scarce, autobiography.

        The Brown Wasps: A Collection of Three Essays in Autobiography

      Mount Horeb: The Perishable Press Limited. 1969. First. First edition. Illustrated by Jack Beal. Bound by Douglas Cockerell and Son using three different marbled papers. Tiny bump to one corner, still easily fine in marbled papercovered boards. Colophon states that there were 200 copies on Charter Oak paper, and fifty-six copies on Shadwell, although a laid in printed statement from the publisher asserts that there were only 185 copies on Charter Oak. This appears to be one of the fifty-six on Shadwell. One of the AIGA's 50 best designed books of the year. Easily Eiseley's scarcest book. .

        The Andromeda Strain.

      Knopf, New York 1969 - First Edition of the author's first novel published under his real name. Octavo. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Inscribed by Crichton. A very sharp copy. Michael Crichton's mystery and thriller fiction has earned him the 1969 Edgar Allen Poe Award and the Writer's Guild of America Award. For his later television production, ER, he received the 1994 George Foster Peabody Award and the 1996 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series. The Andromeda Strain would prove to be the most important novel of his career and establish him as a best-selling author. "He had me convinced it was all really happening" (New York Times). "Science fiction, which once frightened me because it seemed so far-out, now frightens me because it seems so near. The Andromeda Strain is as matter-of-fact as the skull-and-crossbones instructions on a bottle of poison - and just as chillingly effective" (Life).
