        Marino Marini: Complete Works

      New York: Tudor Publishing Co. 1970. SIGNED LIMITED FIRST EDITION, number 7 of only 50 copies with original color lithograph and SIGNED by internationally acclaimed Italian artist Marino Marini. "Early in his career (1931) Marino Marini used the word 'poesia' to describe the quality he wished to render in his sculpture -- he was referring to his portraits. It is a word that will serve to characterize the indefinable personal quality that gives unity to an artist's work -- not the formal unity of which enough has been written here and elsewhere, but the unity of a personal vision of reality, a private world of images or symbols that the artist, by his sovereign power of transmutation, embodies in forms that possess not only imaginative power but also visual delights" (Herbert Read, in the introduction).Complete with a stunningly sharp original lithograph, as well as countless reproductions of Marini's sculptures and paintings.New York: Tudor Publishing Co., 1970. Folio, (36x26 cm); leather-bound book with beautiful gilt detailing on spine and cover; top edge gilt. Housed in original slipcase. Signed by Marini and numbered 7/50 on the lithograph. A fine copy, with particularly rich colors on the lithograph. Fine.

        Mog the forgetful cat.

      London William Collins Sons & Co., Ltd.,, 1970. Large octavo. Publisher's pictorial boards. With the dust jacket. Illustrated throughout by the author. Ends gently bumped, otherwise fine. First edition, first impression, in the very scarce jacket, this a rare presentation copy inscribed, "To Sheila Macleod in friendship and gratitude! Judith Kneale". Kerr had married screenwriter Nigel Kneale in 1954, but kept her maiden name for her books. This is the first instalment in Ker's beloved Mog series. The warm inscription was likely to fellow author Sheila Macleod (b.1939), whose first novel The Moving Accident was, like Kerr's Orlando, published in 1968. Her second work, the Snow White Soliloquies, was published in the year of Mog's publication.

        'The Empire Trilogy' [Comprising 'Troubles'/'The Siege of Krishnapur'/'The Singapore Grip'] First UK Editions 1970-1978

      Cape/Weidenfeld Nicolson, 1970. Hardcover. Near Fine. A set of first edition, first printings published by Jonathan Cape and Weidenfeld and Nicolson between 1970 and 1978. All three novels by Farrell, constituting 'The Empire Trilogy', are generally considered only to be connected thematically, although the character of 'Archer', who appears in 'Troubles', makes an appearance in 'The Singapore Grip' also. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time all three first editions have been presented as a set. 'Troubles', published by Jonathan Cape in 1970, is a near fine book with the red top stain still present – the book is without inscriptions. In a very good+ wrapper which is unclipped (45s/£2.25 as called for) with some wear to the spine ends and rubbing to the edges and corners. Superb dust wrapper illustration by Bill Botten. 'The Siege of Krishnapur', published by Weidenfeld and Nicolson in 1973 (winner of the Booker Prize of that year) is a very good book with one name to the ffep in a very good (internally reinforced) wrapper which is clipped and has some wear in places as well as a neatly repaired closed tear to the foot of the front panel. 'The Singapore Grip', published by Weidenfeld and Nicolson in 1978, is a near fine book without inscriptions in a very good+ wrapper which is not price clipped and has some fading to the spine as well as some wear to corners and extremities. Since 'Troubles' was announced as the 'winner' of the Lost Booker Prize of 1970, interest in Farrell's work has risen dramatically. The trilogy exists as his legacy and displays his superb writing talent so tragically cut short in August 1979.
