        Where the Wild Things Are [Poster]; "A 'We Like Books' Poster from the See-Saw Book Club" PG-804

      Scholastic Publications, New York 1969 - Elephant Folio 23" tall; 1 pages; 1969 Scholastic Publications. A very early and very uncommon poster for Sendak's Wild Things. Issued by Scholastic to announce their pending (1st paperback) publication of Sendak's most celebrated work. This is a very large poster measuring 27 x 40 inches. Distributed to teachers and schools, it is safe to assume that most were consumed in the process of display and use. This example may have been unfolded once but remains very nearly as new in its original folded "distribution" condition. A high point in the range of Sendak posters, beacuse of its unique association with the Wild Things book, and the difficulty in finding copies in well preseved condition. 12 years handling Sendak material and I have seen no example in better condition, including several I have sold to institutions and collectors.

        The Complete Works of Walter Savage Landor

      New York - Barnes and Noble, 1969. New York - Barnes and Noble, 1969 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The complete works of Walter Savage Landor, nineteenth-century writer and poet. With frontispieces to each volume. Including his famousImaginary Conversations, along with his poetry. In a long and active life of eighty-nine years Landor produced a considerable amount of work in various genres. This can perhaps be classified into four main areasprose, lyric poetry, political writings including epigrams and Latin. His prose and poetry have received most acclaim, but critics are divided in their preference between them. Landors prose is best represented by the Imaginary Conversations. He drew on a vast array of historical characters from Greek philosophers to contemporary writers and composed conversations between pairs of characters that covered areas of philosophy, politics, romance and many other topics. These exercises proved a more successful application of Landors natural ability for writing dialogue than his plays. Although these have many quotable passages the overall effect suffered because he never learned the art of drama. Landor wrote much sensitive and beautiful poetry. The love poems were inspired by a succession of female romantic idealsIone, Ianthe, Rose Aylmer and Rose Paynter. Equally sensitive are his domestic poems about his sister and his children. In the course of his career Landor wrote for various journals on a range of topics that interested him from anti-Pitt politics to the unification of Italy. He was also a master of the epigram which he used to good effect and wrote satirically to avenge himself on politicians and other people who upset him. Reprinted from the 1927-1936 Chapman and Hall edition. Complete in sixteen volumes. Condition: In green cloth bindings. Externally very smart, with just some minor shelfwear to a few volumes. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean, with just theodd patch of foxing. Overall: NEAR FINE..

        RECH GIA

      Grafica moderna-contemporanea 1969 - Tiratura: E.A. Acquatinta a tre colori ed impressioni a secco su carta Arches. Bertrand Dorny Nasce a Parigi nel 1931. Iniziò come pittore, ma fu sempre affascinato ed incuriosito dalle differenti tecniche artistiche. Molto presto si cimentò con l'incisione. Il lato meccanico dell'incisione lo seduce, come pure la nozione di transfert, e questa diventerà, col passare degli anni, la base delle sue future ricerche. La sua opera incisa rappresenta oggi più di 650 stampe e l'artista, dalla metà degli anni 50 ha esposto frequentemente in Francia come all'estero (Lussemburgo, Belgio, Svizzera, Stati Uniti, Germania, Inghilterra, etc). Bertrand Dorny ha partecipato con gran regolarità a numerose esposizioni collettive e saloni: La Jeune Gravure Contemporaine, Les peintres-graveurs, etc. e biennali: le Biennali di Cracovia, Epinal o Freschen, e la sua opera è stata spesso premiata. Fra le gallerie e gli editori che hanno avuto un ruolo determinante nella carriera dell'artista, citiamo Bernard Gheerbrand (La Hune), La Nouvelle Gravure ou Nesto Jacometti (Locarno). Dopo essere stato professore di disegno all'Accademia della Grande Chaumière, Bertrand insegnò incisione, dal 1975 al 1979, alla Scuola di Belle Arti di Parigi mm 600x490

Contains none of the photographs, maps, charts and drawings of the first released edition. Newspaper review of the first released edition taped on to the half-title. Atlantis is a legendary island first mentioned in Plato's dialogues Timaeus and Critias, written about 360 BC. According to Plato, Atlantis was a naval power lying in front of the Pillars of Hercules that conquered many parts of Western Europe and Africa 9,000 years before the time of Solon, or approximately 9600 BC. After a failed attempt to invade Athens, Atlantis sank into the ocean in a single day and night of misfortune. The possible existence of a genuine Atlantis was discussed throughout classical antiquity, but it was usually rejected and occasionally parodied by later authors. Atlantis inspires today's literature, from science fiction to comic books to films. Its name has become a byword for any and all supposed advanced prehistoric lost civilizations. Jame's Mavor led an expedition to discover Atlantis and find the cause of its downfall. He succeeded, recording the history of a cataclysmic natural disaster that sunk the fabled island. Mavor inspired further research into past volcanic eruptions and floods, and brings the myth of Atlantis into the light of scientific reality. Condition: In a half calf binding. Externally smart, some shelfwear and marks to the rear board. Internally firmly bound, aside from the half-title which is working loose. Marginal age-toning, but clean throughout with just the veryodd spot. Overall: VERY GOOD.
