        Dance Hall of the Dead (Signed)

      New York: Harper & Row, 1973. First edition / First printing.. Hardcover.. A near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket.. Octavo. SIGNED by the author on the title page. Hillerman's third novel, and second mystery featuring Navajo tribal detective Joe Leaphorn. Winner of the Edgar Award for Best Mystery Novel of the Year. Hillerman's success reinvigorated the detective form and opened it to a new generation of writers featuring detectives who not only plied their trades in different locations but brought to their jobs a much wider variety of qualifications than the tough-but-sensitive he-man types of earlier years. ~This is a clean and tight copy which is otherwise fine, but for some slight separation of the spine cloth from the binding at the top and some very faint spotting to top page edges. Dust jacket is clean overall (and would probably be considered 'fine' by most), with just a bit of toning to rear panel and spine, and a touch of rubbing and wear to extremities. ~Overall, a beautiful copy with bold signature by Hillerman on the title page.

        Autograph Letter Signed [Author of Norwood or A Tale of Village Life in New England; Seven Lectures to Young Men; Evolution and Religion; Life of Jesus the Christ; and Yale Lectures on Preaching, etc...]

      Peekskill, NY: Henry Ward Beecher, 1973. First edition. Loose_leaf. Very Good +. A Very Good + Autograph Letter Signed from the popular, influential, and controversial Congregationalist Preacher Henry Ward Beecher. Henry Ward Beecher (1813 – 1887) was a highly popular, and highly controversial preacher, author, editor, and lecturer, an ardent and outspoken abolitionist, proponent of women's suffrage, supporter of Darwin's Theory of Evolution, and an advocate of temperance. Not only did Beecher speak against slavery, he took action against it by, for example, raising funds to purchase guns for those opposing slavery in Kansas and Nebraska, which rifles became known as "Beecher's Bibles". Beecher drew crowds of thousands to his weekly sermons and to his lecture tours and Abraham Lincoln said of Beecher that no one in history had "so productive a mind". After attending one of Beecher's sermons, Mark Twain described the preacher as "sawing his arms in the air, howling sarcasms this way and that, discharging rockets of poetry and exploding mines of eloquence, halting now and then to stamp his foot three times in succession to emphasize a point." The letter offered here, dated "Aug 4 '73" and sent from Peekskill, New York (Beecher's home) to a fly trap manufacturer, occupies both sides of a single sheet of paper (measuring approximately 6" x 5") with a single horizontal fold for mailing. (The fold has cause a split across the letter very neatly taped across the letter's recto.) In the letter, Beecher writes: "Gentlemen / Have you any agency / for your fly traps in New York / City? - Why do you not / advertise them? - Say in / the Christian Union? // The one you sent me for / trial has done unexpectedly / well, and I would like / to get others. One in each / living room, in summer / would[?] go far to keep down / this nuisance [illegible]. // I find, for their effective working / that a [illegible] allowance of [illegible] / strong [illegible] , and water so / as to give out a smell, is / very useful." Beecher then signs the letter "Truly yours / Henry Ward Beecher". An excellent Henry Ward Beecher letter, dealing with a concern of daily life, offering advice on the use of fly traps, cleverly endorsing the product's performance and seeking a new advertiser for the Christian Union, one of the leading religious newspapers of the day, edited, of course, by Henry Ward Beecher. Letters from this important and influential Preacher are quite uncommon the market. An excellent AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED BY HENRY WARD BEECHER. QUITE SCARCE.

        Captain Cookís Florilegium

      London,: Lion and Unicorn Press [Royal College of Art],, 1973.. Large folio, with 30 engravings; a fine copy, specially bound by Zaehnsdorf in black Nigerian goatskin and Japanese silk, cloth case. The botany of the Endeavour voyage: this magnificent printing by the Royal College of Art in London from original eighteenth-century copper-plates appeared in an edition of only one hundred copies, on a specially hand-made paper; the edition was fully subscribed long before it was completed.The original botanical drawings from Cook's first voyage by Sydney Parkinson, along with the actual specimens collected by Daniel Solander and Joseph Banks, were used to make detailed and accurate paintings under Banks' supervision when the expedition returned to London. Following this they were engraved, and we know that Banks intended to oversee full publication of the collection of engravings. In fact only a proof impression was made and the undertaking abandoned. The British Museum (Natural History) holds the original copper-engraved plates, as well as the drawings and specimens themselves, and a set of the proof impressions made from the copper-engravings.Between 1900 and 1905 lithographic copies of 318 of these proof impressions were published as Illustrations of Australian Plants collected in 1770. The copper-plates themselves remained unused, until in 1960 it was decided that the Royal College of Art should print a selection of the most beautiful. The result, after thirteen years of planning, was this splendid production, which for the first time showed the extraordinary strength of the images. Perfectly printed, rich impressions in strong black ink, they show the important botany of the Cook voyage to great advantage, and at the same time make it a matter for great regret that no eighteenth-century edition ever appeared. These very pure images present a more austere interpretation (though quite as beautiful) of Banks' magnum opus than the printing in colours from all the plates completed in 1990 by Alecto Historical Editions.Hill, 52.

In this copy we have all 3 features combined and signed Association Review Copies, as offered here, are Rare indeed.

Finally, in our experience, signed copies of Singer's National Book Award Acceptance Speech are Rare as well. A remarkable collection of three items related to one of Singer's important National Book Award-Winning book, two of which are Association Copies, two of which are Advance Copies, and ALL THREE OF WHICH ARE SIGNED BY ISAAC BASHEVIS SINGER.

        Oars Messages - Seamail

      [Easthampton, NY. 2013]. Unique artist's book, hand-written and hand-painted by the artist / author, Barry McCallion on cream Rives BFK and black St. Armand paper, signed and dated the printed colophon, "Barry McCallion / January 2013." Page size: 11-15/16 x 9-3/8 inches; 28pp. Bound: loose as issued housed in custom-made black cloth over boards clamshell box with large red "X" - cancellation stamp - on front of box with collaged "stamp" 1-1/8 x 2 inches, hand-drawing in black ink showing oarsman rowing in boat within a roundel, titled OARS MESSAGES with square, cross, circle, and double circle in each of the four corners, title in black on white paper label on spine, fine. The text is written in white ink on black St. Armand paper and the "cancelled stamps" are drawn in black india ink and colored with Winsor & Newton inks, including silver metallic. The artist / author notes that this book contains notes in the Oarsman's hand (not legible)and cancelled stamps unique to the messages of 1973. "The Oarsman resolved on his journey in 1970. As he spent the next two years organizing his departure and provisioning his boat, these are his earliest - as well as his most elaborate attempts to communicate. The Oarsman's journey is not without precedents; Joshua Slocum or Odysseus explore and engage the world from the 'boat of self.' Any journey - long or short, actual or fictional - becomes a pattern for life. These drawings afford us a glimpse of the Oarsman. The stamps are cancelled. If we are inclined to be generous, we can infer that they (and he) arrived at their destination." Barry McCallion continues his exploration of the narrative of his created world (or is it his observations of this world?) through chance word and particular image. His creation of the Oarsman - a sailor / traveler who rows (backward of course) towards his mythical destination - is intriguing. His voyages may be autobiographical or completely haphazard. He hoists his sails or locks his oars and is off - and we follow, observing from the sidelines, to places we otherwise would not go. See an Image.

The first Popular Library edition of Thompson's third book, the second of his "Fear & Loathing" accounts, in which Thompson covers the Nixon/McGovern race for the Presidency, bringing to the campaign a sense of humor and horror that is simultaneously both off-the-wall and entirely appropriate to its subject.

Thompson." Additionally signed and dated inside the front cover. Montfort is well-known for his collaborations with Charles Bukowski, of whom he took between 2000 and 3000 photographs during his career.

Trace rubbing to folds; price sticker on the front cover; very near fine in wrappers. An uncharacteristically nice inscription, and association, indicative of a long-term relationship between the two. . First Edition. Softcover.
