      London: Jonathan Cape, 1970.. First Edition. Cloth. Very Good +/Very Good+. Book is clean although there is some minor water staining to top of front board. It has just leached through onto the very top of the fixed and free end papers. Previous owners initials and '70 written in red on end paper. Jacket has slight wear at base of spine from an old label (and on both panels where it went around) but it is not that noticeable unless looked at to look at the images. Minor wear at base of spine and nicks to corners. Light wear to spine hinges and a couple of tears at top of spine that have been repaired internally with archival paper. A water stain is visible on the inside of the jacket at top of spine but it does not show at all when looked at from the outside. Tiny loss at corners and front top spine hinge. The colours on the jacket are pretty bright and fresh and overall the jacket looks ok (certainly better than the list of faults might indicate). Price present. Postage will be confirmed when you enquire or order and for light or very heavy books will vary from the ABE quote which is based on a 1kg parcel.

        Preliminary cover design for Penny Candy, by Edward Fenton

      c. 1970. Watercolor and ink on paper, measuring 8 1/4 by 7 1/4 inches. Archivally matted and framed. Preliminary artwork for the cover design of Fenton's book, a fantasy story based on the English "Tinker Tailor" rhyme. A copy of the trade paperback edition of the book, which was published by Holt in 1970, is included in a sleeve affixed to the back of the frame. The key differences between this preliminary drawing and the finished work are most discernible in the five children standing in front of the candy counter: in the preliminary artwork, the children's clothing is colored, their arrangement is different, as is their height in relation to the counter. Gorey also used some ink flourishes to make the titling, which lines up vertically on either side of the central image, appear more like pieces of candy. This was not used in the published version. Gorey's watercolor work for published books seldom appears on the market. Very fine in an attractive black acrylic and resin frame.

        One Hundred Years of Solitude

      NY: Harper & Row. (1970). The uncorrected proof copy of the first American edition of the Nobel Prize winner's masterwork.

This is a near fine copy. This proof differs from the published edition by the inclusion of a review of the Spanish language edition of the book. . First Edition. Softcover.

      Gr.8°, ca. 15000 S., OLwd. goldgepr., Farbkopfschnitt, einige Bde. m. Transparent-OU, , Min. beschienen u. min. gebrauchsspurig, sonst tadell. (= Handwörterbuch zur deutschen Volkskunde, Abteilung I, Aberglaube). 1927 bis 1942 erstmals erschienen, versammelt es zum ersten Mal alle Aspekte des Volks- und Aberglaubens. Die entlegensten Quellen wurden von einem schweizerisch-deutschen Autorenteam über Jahrzehnte gesammelt und zusammengestellt. In der Folge entstand ein dichtes, faktengesättiges Lexikon (Naturwissenschaft und Mythologie, Naturheilkunde und Medizin, Astrologie und Meteorologie, Symbolwissenschaft, Pflanzenheilkunde, Magie), das zu allen Aspekten überraschende Querverweise und Anmerkungen bereit hält. Viele der Inhalte des Handwörterbuches haben erst in den letzten Jahren ihre volle Aufmerksamkeit bei einem breiten Publikum gefunden, beispielsweise im Rahmen der feministischen Frauenforschung und dem großen Interesse an der Geschichte der Hexenverfolgung. «Eines der lexikalischen Großwerke des 20. Jahrhunderts, das in keiner wissenschaftlichen Bibliothek fehlen darf.»

Large Folio [c.29 x 22cms], c.pp24 uncut, previous owner's neat little booklabel on inside of front wrapper, wrappers just slightly dulled or dusty, couple of trifling nicks, but overall an excellent copy of a large and vulnerable item.--oOo-- Edition Limited to 200 copies only : designed & printed by Will & Sebastian Carter. A rare Rampant Lions book comprising Poems & Speeches celebrating the 80th birthday of Lady Margaret Keynes. This was an exclusive celebration to which only 38 guests were invited. 'This booklet reprinted the invitaton to the birthday dinner (which we [the Rampant Lions] had originally printed) in facsimile, the menu (which we had not) and, from standing type, an acrostic sonnet by Jon Stallworthy. (We [the Rampant Lions] had already printed this poem in Arrighi-Vicenza, also for private circulation.) The lines of the sonnet begin with the letters of 'Margaret Keynes', since by good fortune the letters in each word exactly tally with the octave and sestet of the Petrachan sonnet. There is also a translation of the poem into Latin by Nicolas Barker with the acrostic duly Latinised' [Rampant Lions : A Printing Workshop]. Includes also speeches by Stephen Keynes, Christopher Cornford, John Sparrow, Richard Hume Lord Adrian, and Margaret Keynes.

Horizontal fold, small tear at upper margin not affecting image, else fine, mounted in an archival mat . A delicious pencil drawing by Mad artist Mingo, showing Alfred, under the title "Steaming", in a two-person metal steam cabinet: beside him is a pretty girl with a startled look on her face; Alfred wears an expression of sensuous pleasure, and the viewer is left to imagine just what is going on in the confines of the cabinet. Somehow, it doesn't take much imagination. Done as a preliminary to a subsequent painting
