      New York: Doubleday and Company, 1974 First edition, first printing with "P6" to page 199. Publisher's maroon cloth, lettered in gilt; in the original pictorial dust jacket designed by Alex Gotfryd, lettered in yellow, white and black. Book fine; unclipped dust jacket, with a hint of faint toning to the spine, tiny closed tear to the top edge of the front panel, light rubbing to rear panel, else a bright and clean copy of King's first novel, near fine overall. An epistolary novel, Carrie tells the story of Carrie White, a teenage misfit with telekinetic powers. After being broken down by her fanatically religious mother and humiliated by her classmates, Carrie decides to use her powers to get revenge on the people who hurt her. Although it was only his first novel, Carrie remains one of King's most popular stories. Indeed, as The New York Times confirms in its review, "King does more than tell a story" and lauds "That this is a first novel is amazing. King writes with the kind of surety normally associated only with veteran writers." Notably, Carrie was first adapted into a film by Brian De Palma in 1976 and was reimagined in 2013 by Kimberly Pierce.. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        NU FÉMININ. Aquarelle originale, technique mixte

      1974 - Aquarelle originale, technique mixte (encre de chine, aquarelle, gouache or et argenté). Format du dessin : 61 x 20,5 cm (cadre à l'encre de Chine) Format du cadre : 122 x 72,5 cm (cadre moderne avec passe-partout) Légende de l'artiste à la plume à l'encre de Chine : "Roldàn en Roma el mes de novembre de 1974". Sujet : femme aux bas noirs. "Modesto Roldán adivinó el mundo de la soledad mezclando a aproximadamente, partes iguales tercios iguales, la belleza y la serenidad que se bebe en la antesala de la muerte; por eso está tan cerca de Leonardo da Vinci y ama a la pintura para no agravar a la sabiduría. Modesto Roldán que vivió treinta años en París, no perdió aún, gracias sean dadas a quien proceda con mayor mimo, el pelo de la dehesa del paraíso terrenal, ese cercado por el que retozan en absoluta libertad las almas inconsútiles de todas las cabras del Parnaso, las almas sin una sola puntada ni de esparto ni de seda. El hombre conservador piensa que Dios se apiada de los hombres que solo tienen un sueño, y el revolucionario proclama que también el agua tiene su historia. Modesto Roldán no inspira piedad porque sueña mil lances orquestados por el único denominador común de la mujer, esta sutil y huidiza incertidumbre. Modesto Ro ldán es la pintura en cueros, en los puros cueros que existen no más que para ser pintados con ese raro pincel que los dioses reparten con muy calculada cicatería . Decía Cicerón que el placer es un estímulo, un acicate que invita a la vileza. Es cierto que todos pasamos por la vida haciendo equilibrios sobre la cuerda floja de la que se puede caer a la caldera de Pedro Botero. Solo el arte puede salvar al hombre del fuego del infierno." (Camilo José Cela) "Modesto Roldán, es la mística humanizada de la carne. Por eso, desnudos y bodegones se armonizan y hermanan en un soplo común: ambos son la exaltación de la materia" (Javier Villan) "Nació en Huelva, pasó el estrecho y arraigó en París cuando París era una fiesta española en la que bailaban los fugitivos del Régimen, Devoró las noches de Montparnasse, se tiró a todas las "demi mondaines" y colgó cuadros en las mejores galerias europeas. Estuvo en la célebre orgía organizada en homenaje a Dalí. Por allí andaba el mirón de Cadaqués, Arrabal,Eduardo Arroyo y toda una legión de ninfas y de sátiros." (Fernando Sanchez Drago) "Le choc fut inmédiat -comme pour Bellmer, Wunderlich- lorsque nous le vîmes pour la première fois en cette Galerie Veranneman. Nulle déception ne vint tarir par la suite, notre fascination pour cet art hautain et libertaire, qui avoue l'inavoué en des terme tellement aristocratiques qu'ils font passer les messages les plus dérangeaqnts pour nous petite habitudes de penser. Mais il y a plus: cet athée complet évolue et nage, paradoxalement, bien plus que que n'importe quel spiritualiste, dans le monde sacral. Et son pinceau, et son crayon nous désignent les prolongements lumineux d'une relation sexuelle que jamais nous, Occidentaux, n'avons vécue comme les petits Précolombiens iniciés aux sources de la Vie dès leur jeune âge dans les scuptures de leurs temples ni dans les motifs de leurs céramiques." Jacques Collard, Bruxelles, 1972 Rodlàn explique qu'il utilisa à peu près toutes les techniques possibles : acrylique, eau, huiles, laques, encre, etc. Pour le corps des femmes il utilise la technique de l'aérographe qui crée cet effet de nuance et de légèreté pour représenter la peau. L'Oeuvre de l'artiste a fait l'objet de nombreuses expositions.Cette superbe peinture originale d'une grande taille et d'une exécution délicate ravira les amateurs d'art érotique raffiné tendance fétichiste. Vendu encadré. Superbe état.

Limited edition of 1,750 numbered copies.Maria Sibylla Merian, also known as Anna Maria Sibylla (1647 - 1717) was German-born naturalist, artist and explorer. At a time when it was not customary for women to pursue careers in the sciences, she became a pioneering entomologist. Her work changed the field of entomology forever, for she was one of the first naturalists who cultivated live insects, which gave her powerful insights into their natural history and behaviours. Contrary to the prevailing notion of the time that insects were spontaneously created, Merian discovered that many insects went through distinct developmental transformations. Through her accurate and realist illustrations of insects and their food plants, she was the first to document these life stages for the public. Merian is now recognised as one of the best insect (and flower) scientific illustrators of her day – and indeed, of all time.The year of Merian’s death, her paintings were purchased for Peter I, tsar of Russia. Her daughter, Dorothea Maria subsequently was summoned to St. Petersburg, where she worked as a scientific illustrator for the tsar and became the first woman to be employed by the Russian Academy of Sciences.

      St. Martin's Press [1974], New York - Octavo, boards. "Tough, slick narrative of an interstellar which lasts [over] 1000 years. To the soldier hero, it seems to last about ten years, thanks to the time-dilation effect of faster-than-light travel. Good, realistic, military SF which actually subverts many of the clichés of that category . (he was a Vietnam veteran, which helped). Initially rejected by 18 publishers, it has since sold over a million copies." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), pp. 141-2. Haldeman's first SF novel.

        Historische beschryving der stadt Amsterdam: waerin de voornaemste geschiedenissen (na een kort verhael van gansch Hollant en d'omleggende dorpen, als ambachts-heerlijkheden, onder deze stadt gelegen) die ten tijde der herdoopers, Nederlandtsche beroerten, en onder Prins Willems, de tweede, stadt-houderlijke regeering, hier ter stede voor-gevallen zijn, verhandelt, en al de stad gemeene, zoo geestelijke als wereltlijke, gebouwen, in meer als tzeventigh kopere platen, met haer nevenstaende beschrijving, vertoont worden.Amsterdam, Jacob Meurs, 1663. Folio. With engraved title-page, coat of arms and 72 double-page engravinged plates. Contemporary motted calf, gold-tooled spine, rebacked with original backstrip laid down.

      Alden & Landis 663/47; I.H. van Eeghen, "Illustraties v. d. 17de Eeuwse Beschrijvingen ...," in: Jaarboek Amstelodamum LXVI (1974), pp. 96-116, at pp. 100-101 & 104; Nijhoff & V. Hattum 75. First and only edition of an important and magnificently illustrated history and description of Amsterdam, written by the celebrated Dutch historian Olfert Dapper (1635/6-1689). The plates include maps of the city showing its growth from 1400 to the expansion that was still in progress at the time of publication, a city view, and views of nearly all important buildings in and around the city. The text covers politics, religious strife, trade in America and the East Indies, and is largely built around the buildings depicted. The frontispiece emphasizes the city's international nature by including figures representing the Americas, Africa and the Middle East. It was the first great account of Amsterdam since Pontanus's (Latin 1611, Dutch 1614). When Pontanus wrote, near the beginning of the Twelve-Year Truce with Spain, Amsterdam was just emerging as the Netherlands' leading city, whereas Dapper shows the city at the height of its glory.Binding rubbed along the extremities, and rebacked, as noted above. Some marginal waterstains, some marginal annotations in ink, plate with "Amsterdam van het Y aan te sien" reinforced with tape, and some minor spots. Nonetheless a good copy.

        The Collected Works of Sir Winston S Churchill 34 volume set

      London: Library of Imperial History, 1974. First edition, only printing. Hardcover. This is a 34-volume set of Churchill's Collected Works.  The Collected Works was a lavish production timed to commemorate the centenary of Churchill's birth.  Most sets were bound in natural calfskin vellum with 22 ct. gold titling, the Churchill Arms in gilt on the front cover, gilt page edges, green marbled endpapers, green and gold head and foot bands, and satin ribbon markers.  The contents were printed on special 500-year archival paper. Some understandably quibble about the editions used and revisions made for the Collected Works.  Few contest that the set testifies with beautiful authority to Churchill the writer.  The 34 volumes of the Collected Works are virtually a library unto themselves.  The set consumes nearly five feet of shelf space and weighs almost 100 pounds, comprising five million words printed on 19,000 pages.  The Collected Works publisher intended to produce 3000 sets.  However, the print run never exceeded 2000 copies and only 1750 sets were ever published.  Here is a full, but imperfect, set, structurally sound with aesthetic flaws for a collector/reader who wants a Collected Works set at a fraction of the usual market price. This set came to us from a storage facility packed with books, where they apparently spent quite a number of years. The contents of all 34 volumes appear bright and tight, with no spotting. The gilt page edges remain generally bright with little scuffing or wear. All of the green satin ribbon markers are intact. The sole previous ownership mark is the circular embossed personal library device of the previous owner on the half-titles. All of the bindings are square and intact, showing little wear. The calfskin vellum was meant to tone and mellow with age. Here the vellum bindings have toned significantly and unevenly through the set. As it aged, the vellum bindings also had a tendency to separate from the boards beneath. A number of the volumes in this set now experience some separation of the vellum from the boards, which is not so much visually evident as it is evident to the touch when the books are handled. Finally, the original green leather slipcases are no longer present. Withal, a sound, full set. Please be advised that this large, heavy set will be packed with care and shipped at cost, depending on the buyer's destination and shipping preference.

        Pilgrim at Tinker Creek

      New York, New York, USA: Harper & Row, 1974. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good+/Very Good+. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Book Club Edition. From Annie Dillard's personal library and with her bookplate on a front endpaper. Minor bumping to spine extremities. Light surface wear. Five pages of pencil annotations. This was evidently Dillard's own copy used in giving presentations as it contains the two paged single-sided yellow foolscap text handwritten by Dillard beginning: "I'm going to read from PATC. I'll read something from the beginning..." Contains two paper page markers. Additionally, a handmade decorative jacket made from brown paper with the book's title and author's name covers the actual dust jacket of this book. Since this copy was from Dillard's own library and the text is annotated by her, one may surmise that she created this protective cover herself. A unique copy of the renowned American poet, novelist, essayist and critic's Pulitzer Prize winning book.

        Odds and Sods (Original poster for the 1974 album)

      London and New York: Track / MCA, 1974. Original promotional poster for the 1974 album. In the autumn of 1973, while members of The Who were preparing for the film version of "Tommy," John Entwistle was put in charge of compiling an album to counter the widespread bootlegging of the band's concerts. "I tried to arrange it like a parallel sort of Who career--what single and album tracks we might have released, " Entwistle explained. Two albums' worth of material was compiled, but in 1974 only a single album was released. The second "album's worth" came out on the 1998 remastered CD release. The original album's popular highlight is "Long Live Rock," a staple at the band's live shows. 30 x 20 inches. Rolled, on archival linen. Fine.
