        The Karla Trilogy] Tinker, Tailor, Soldier Spy, The Honourable Schoolboy, Smiley's People

      London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1974-1979.. London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1974-1979. First editions of each title in the author's acclaimed Karla Trilogy. Octavo, original black cloth. 3 volumes. Each are signed by Le Carre on the title page. Tinker, Tailor Soldier Spy is signed "David Cornwell aka John LeCarre." Each are near fine to fine in near fine dust jackets, with The Honourable Schoolboy price-clipped. An excellent set, uncommon in this condition and signed. Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy garnered instant praise for Le Carre as "[t]he premier spy novelist of his time. Perhaps of all time" (Time). "Le Carre is simply the world's greatest fictional spymaster" (Newsweek). Le Carre's inspiration drew from his experience of the revealing of the Cambridge Five traitors in the 1950s and '60s (Anthony, 2009), and the novel's popularity can be seen in relation to those shocking events. In 2011, the novel was adapted into a successful film, starring Gary Oldman and Colin Firth, and it received three nominations at the 84th Academy Awards for Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Original Score, and Best Actor. This successful production is but one of Le Carre's numerous accolades in espionage fiction. He was awarded both the Helmerich Award and the Goethe Medal, and, in 2008, The Times ranked Le Carré 22nd on its list of "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945.

        Spencerian Bird of Paradise [Spencerian Penmanship art] Shigeo Asao original

      , 1974. 1974 Original art: a thoroughly stunning example of Spencerian Penmanship art. Crafted by a master of the craft, Shigeo Asao, with pitch-black ink on paper. Originally a method of rules for teaching cursive writing to children, "Spencerian Penmanship" was created in the mid-1800's by Platt Rogers Spencer, who grew up admiring the graceful lines of the John Hancock signature on the Declaration of Independence, and his five sons. It stood in contrast to Italian calligraphy [which was developed for speed only] particularly in its capital letters, which were to be accomplished in artful flourishes unique to the writer's style. The writing form has occasionally been taken to its extremes as a beautiful form of graphic art, as in the case of this August, 1974 Spencerian Birds-of-Paradise rendering by Shigeo Asao. The Spencerian Bird form is an expression in Spencerian cursive art of a bird-of-paradise-like creature or creatures (three are found in this example), a now famous device because elaborate tail plumage allows full expression of the complex flowing curves of the art form. Examining this opus by Asao, with its minutely tapering threadlines and deep black ink still glistening in places, one has to wonder how it's possible with a human hand. Signed and dated. 7.5" x 11" white paper, loosely matted 14.75" 18.5". Slight creasing, tiny faint brown spot, else fine for both the work and the matting. Note that the slight blurring of the scans - most notable in the close-up of the signature - is due to the stand-off from the glass scanner plate caused by the intervening matting. l-lng2

      Wilton, CT: Lyceum Press, 1974. Wilton, CT: Lyceum Press, 1974. Quarto, 191 pages. Photographically illustrated. First English language edition of this touchstone book for so many of today's chefs. Point's posthumous work is part memoir, part culinary guide and part cookbook. The book was finally made available again in 2008, with a new introduction by Chef Thomas Keller, in which he says, "Through Chef Point's words I finally understood and discovered a higher sense of purpose. . . .," High praise indeed from Thomas Keller. In our experience, this was always the one book being sought when a young cook, grease spattered and tired-eyed, would enter our shop, saying "chef told me I have to read this book..." Tiny bit of spotting to top edge of text block, corners very slightly bumped, otherwise a fine copy, in a mustard and brown dust jacket, with some edgewear and one closed tear.

        Carrie

      New York: Doubleday, 1974.. New York: Doubleday, 1974. First edition stated on copyright page and "P6" in the gutter of page 199. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author in the month of publication, "For Charlie and Shirley, best wishes - and I hope you enjoy my book as much as I enjoyed writing it- and as much as I've enjoyed all of Ray's and Sarah Jones oldtown friends. Best wishes, Stephen King April 16,1974." The release date of Carrie was April 5, 1974; this copy was inscribed just 11 days later. This present copy is the earliest Stephen King inscription we have encountered. Fine in a very good dust jacket with light wear to the crown and a few closed tears. Stephen King has been read by more people than any living author, and more than most dead ones. As Don Heron commented in "The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural", King specializes in "contemporary American scenes, everyday parents and kids and teenagers, vulgarly realistic language - a believable setting awaiting the coming of terror." He has become the most popular horror writer of all time. Several adaptations of Carrie have been released, including a 1976 feature film, a 1988 Broadway musical, a 1999 feature film sequel, a 2002 television movie, and a 2013 feature film remake.

A nice copy. (#149213). First edition. Signed and dated 9 June 1979 by Haldeman on title page. "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.
