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

      London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1974-1979. First editions of each title in the author's acclaimed Karla Trilogy. Octavo, 3 volumes. Each are signed by Le Carre on the title page. 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.

        The Mote In God&#39;s Eye

      New York: Simon & Schuster. NF/NF. 1974. 1st Edition. Hardcover; 1st Printing. 0671218336 . 1st edition/1st printing. 1st printing with full number line. Near fine, straight, clean book with no handwriting in it and with the silver spine lettering in fine condition, with very slight edge fading to the binding--as usual--and slight toning to text paper--as usual. There are a couple of very small, very faint spots to page edges, and a touch of shelfwear to the lower front corner; no other faults. The near fine price intact dustjacket is clean, crisp and unfaded, with a few very tiny nicks/rubs at spine fold ends and flap fold ends and one small surface rub with no color loss to the back panel gutter area but with no tears or chips. Quite a handsome example of this scarce in the 1st printing classic. I agree with Robert Heinlein&#39;s blurb on this one; it is one of the very best sci-fi books I&#39;ve ever read, with a gut-wrenching ending. Not a story likely to be forgotten easily. .

        TESUKIWASHI TAIKAN.,

      Tokyo: The Mainichi Newspapers, 1974. - Eleven volumes in 6 cases. 5 large cases (20 x 14 x 5) contain 1000 large, handmade paper specimens plus supplemental specimens and little "extras." There are 200 specimens in each folding cloth case, divided among several paper portfolios. Each specimen is tipped to a larger sheet with a fold-over portion bearing text. Thus, the specimen & text may be viewed at the same time. Case, folders, & specimen sheets are all printed in both English and Japanese. The smaller 6th case contains 6 text volumes & a booklet of photographs. A fine set with all volumes in their original cardboard shipping cases. Tesukiwashi Taikan contains every variety of Japanese handmade paper produced at the time, by about 800 "households." Other papers are included that had not been available for a long time but for which the production techniques had been preserved.The specimens are grouped into five categories:Kizukigami -- traditional washi Sikimoyogami -- paper processed while still moist so that it bears a design or pattern. These may be pulp pictures, or have flora embedded, or relay on thickness & thiness for effects. They have an extraordinary range of colors and effects.Wazomegami -- paper dyed with grasses and other natural pigments (also known as Irogami).Kako Washi -- paper treated after the sheet has dried. This includes the addition of gold & silver.Chiyogami -- paper printed in colors by woodblocks, is considered along with Katazomegami -- paper with patterns dyed into it using stencils (similar to pochoir).The large size of these specimens is especially useful for this last group. Some supplements are: 2 light-and-shade watermark pictures, small samples of handmade papers from all over the world, a picture of flowers composed of torn-up washi, a sutra printed in gold on black paper. Very numerous brief essays in the text volumes cover everything related to paper--down to the songs workers sing while making paper. Everything about the collection says "we want to give you everything we can--and then some." There aren't enough superlatives to describe this work. No. 7 of 100 copies of the "overseas limited edition." A 1000 sets for Japan sold out before production began. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Viaje a Cuba

      [México: Fondo de Cultura Económica, 1974]. A few creases to the covers; close to near fine in photo-illustrated wrappers.. First Edition. Small quarto. Edition of 20,000 copies; despite the large limitation no copies are currently for sale on the public databases, nor have I seen the book before. Issued as part of the Testimonios del Fondo series, and featuring the unique design of Marcos Kurtycz, who was the series editor, and who took most of the photographs in this volume himself. Kurtycz framed his images in rounded squares and rectangles, with no two pages similar. He also eschewed yellow: the entire publication is printed in cyan and magenta. While conceptual artists have tried to make their books look like cheap tourist guides, there are fewer examples of cheap tourist guides rising to this level of design sophistication, if not exactly conceptual art. (The Latin American Photobook, 242-243).
