        Histoire des avanturiers qui se sont signalez dans les Indes, contenant ce qu'ils ont fait de plus remarquable depuis vingt années. Paris, Jacques Le Febvre, 1688. 2 volumes. 8vo. With engraved frontispiece, 3 folding engraved maps, 3 engraved plates and 1 engraving in text. Contemporary calf, richly gold-tooled spines and board edges.

      Cat. NHSM, p. 877; Sabin 23476; cf. H. de la Fontaine Verwey, “The ship's surgeon Exquemelin and his book on the buccaneers”, in: Quaerendo IV (1974), pp. 109-131; Howgego, to 1800, E-39. Second French edition of a best-selling illustrated adventure story written by a former Caribbean pirate: the most important primary source and "almost the only comprehensive source of information for pirate activities in the seventeenth century"(Howgego). It was first published in Dutch and soon translated into many languages. "There is certainly no other book of that time which experienced a popularity similar to that of the Bucaneers of America which was in the ten years following its publication translated into most of the European languages" (Sabin).The French edition was, just like the Dutch edition, directly based on the original manuscript. And although it is to a large extent the same as the original Dutch edition of 1678, it is considerably longer. The illustrations and maps for the French edition were newly engraved.Exquemelin (ca. 1645-1707), born in a small town on the coast of Normandy, began his career in service of the French West India Company on a 1666 voyage to Tortuga in the Caribbean. There he went into the service of the notorious Welsh privateer Henry Morgan (ca. 1635-1688), probably as a ship's surgeon. He returned to Europe ca. 1674 and made a new career as a reputable surgeon in Amsterdam, where he wrote the present book. The text is divided into three parts. The first tells of the French voyage to the West Indies in 1666 and describes the circumstances there. The second recounts the dreadful deeds of the Caribbean pirates, especially François l'Olonnais and Henry Morgan, and the third describes the burning and looting of Panama City by Morgan's unruly men. With the engraved armorial bookplate of Vincent Michel Maynon de Farcheville (ca. 1716-1806) on paste-down of both volumes. Frontispiece trimmed along the edges (slightly cut short), folding map with a tear (restored at the back with browned cello tape) and a few occasional stains and smudges. Binding has some minor restorations to the spine and one hinge cracked. Generally in good condition.

        Facsimiles of Documents.

      No Publisher. No Date. 5 loose facsimiles of documents relating to John Baskerville. Various sizes, folded. Housed in an envelope address to R.J.L Kingsford. An intruiging group of facsimile documents. With the documents is a letter from Brooke Crutchley to R.J.L. Kingsford, on Cambidge University Press headed paper dated 1 May 1974. "Dear Billy, I am enclosing five facsimiles of Baskerville items which I have come across in the course of clearing my cupbaords. Can you identify them? My first guess was that they were done for Strauss & Dent but Pip says no. Perhaps they were produced by the Baskerville Club. Have you any ideas? I have nine sets in all to dispose of and if you would like one please keep it, otherwise I will no doubt be able to find a suitable home. Yours ever Brooke." Sadly we do not have Kingsford's reply and so cannot know if he was able to shed more light. The five facsimile documents are: A petition by John Baskerville to the Lords Justices applying for patent to a new method of grinding metal plate by machine (small tear at fold, slightly spotted) An autograph letter from John Bskerville to Horace Walpole MP dated 2 November 1762 requesting patronage. An autograph letter from John Baskerville dated 3 Dec 1766 to "Livy" sending him three copies of Virgil. He adds that he would have added as many copies of Horace "but for my wife's zealous impatience" An autograph draft of Basskerville's Will dated 1773. An autograph letter to John Baskerville dated 19th January 1771 from Boulton & Fothergill requestinng goods from Baskerville for a customer of theirs. With an anotated note by Baskerville at the end saying that he "makes none of the goods need except Bread Baskets".

Limited edition of 300 total, of which 50 were signed by the author and translator; an unspecified number were also signed by the artist, Hugo Manning, of which this is one, this copy being number 3 of the 50. A short story, but the longest written, by Jorge Francsico Isidoro Luis Borges, KBE (1899-1986), a literary giant in both the Spanish-language world and internationally. Regrettably never awarded the Nobel Prize, his works are highly regarded and are seen as the precursor to magical realism later typified by authors such as Gabriel Garcia Marquez. "The Congress" can be viewed as a political essay and was Borges' personal favourite; as with many human endeavors it opens with a high-minded goal and ends in ashes. ***DESCRIPTION: Bound in gold cloth, white lettering on the spine, ivory laid paper endpapers, tipped-in frontispiece being a reproduction of a pencil sketch by Hugo Manning entitled "Jorge Luis Borges in London, 1971"; small quarto size (approximately 9.75" tall), pagination: (i-vi), 1-17, blank, colophon; issued in a limited edition of 300 total, of which 50 were printed on Glastonbury Coloured Antique Laid paper and, per the colophon page, were signed by the author and translator; this copy is also signed by the artist and it number 3 of the 50. The volume is protected by a clear acetate dust wrapper. ***CONDITION: Fine, with a strong, square text block, solid hinges, perfectly straight corners with no rubbing, the interior is clean and bright, and it is entirely free of prior owner markings; the dust wrapper is also fine. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

Housed in a near fine slipcase (condition details below), with Ansel Adams' signature on a page tipped in prior to title page and dated "Carmel, 1975". ***ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Ansel Easton Adams (1902-1984) was noted as a perfect balance of photographer and environmentalist. Most of us have seen Ansel Adams' photographs and have been awed by their beauty; he helped to elevate photography to an art comparable with painting and music, and equally capable of expressing emotion and beauty. He told his students, "It is easy to take a photograph, but it is harder to make a masterpiece in photography than in any other art medium". (Info from Wikipedia) ***ABOUT THE BOOK: The twelve-page Introduction by Wallace Stegner foretells the purpose of this book; to share with us Ansel Adams' vision of Nature ("Nature is for reverence") in all its grandeur and glory. In the preface, Ansel Adams himself discusses the difficulty of choosing 115 images from a working span of over 50 years and his hope that we, the viewers, would find new worlds open to us through his eyes. ***DESCRIPTION: Grey cloth boards with the initials "AA" in silver gilt, black cloth spine with silver gilt lettering, pictorial endpapers ("Clearing Storm", Sonoma County Hills, California c. 1960), frontispiece ("Winter Sunrise", Sierra Nevada, 1944) followed by the tipped-in page bearing Ansel Adams' signature and stating it is a special edition for Time-Life subscribers, Carmel, California, dated 1975, followed by title page, Ansel Adams' preface, Wallace Stegner's Foreword, followed by over 100 pages of his incomNear Fineparable photographs; most from Nature, but some fascinating portraits and scenes that include cities, buildings, and ruins. Oblong folio, pagination: (1-2), tipped in signature page, (3-5), 6-127, Colophon page. The unclipped pictorial dust jacket has a photograph of the Sierra Nevada in winter on the front and Mount Williamson on the back, the front flap contains a summary of the book, the back flap short bios and pictures of both Ansel Adams and Wallace Stegner. The heavy cardboard slipcase is covered in brown paper with the same "AA" initials on the front in black. ***CONDITION: Volume is fine with no evidence of usage; the text block is strong, the head and tail of the spine, and the corners, are perfectly straight with no rubbing, interior is clean and bright, totally free of prior owner markings. The unclipped dust jacket shows the original price of $65.00 "until 12/31/74" and $75.00 thereafter, it is near fine with only some shallow creases to the head of the spine. The slipcase is also near fine with a few shallow tears just beginning at scattered portions of the joints, a small tear to the case where the back meets the top, and some minor scuffing to the back. ***POSTAGE: Please note that this is an extremely large and quite heavy book; while we are happy to ship to both domestic and international addresses, additional postage will apply. If you would like to contact us in advance for postage costs, we are happy to provide an estimate prior to your placing an order. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        THE FOREVER WAR

      New York: St. Martin's Press, [1974]. First edition. A fine copy in a nearly fine first issue dust jacket (priced $7.95) with a touch of rubbing to the front flap fold and upper right front corner and mild rubbing to spine ends. (16004). 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. Winner of the 1975 Hugo award for best novel. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-479. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1516-1985, p. 360.

"The Congress" can be viewed as a political essay and was Borges' personal favourite; as with many human endeavors it opens with a high-minded goal and ends in ashes.***DESCRIPTION: Bound in gold cloth, white lettering on the spine, ivory laid paper endpapers, tipped-in frontispiece being a reproduction of a pencil sketch by Hugo Manning entitled "Jorge Luis Borges in London, 1971"; small quarto size (approximately 9.75" tall), pagination: (i-vi), 1-17, blank, colophon; issued in a limited edition of 300 total, of which 50 were printed on Glastonbury Coloured Antique Laid paper and, per the colophon page, were signed by the author and translator; this copy is also signed by the artist and it number 3 of the 50. The volume is protected by a clear acetate dust wrapper.***CONDITION: Fine, with a strong, square text block, solid hinges, perfectly straight corners with no rubbing, the interior is clean and bright, and it is entirely free of prior owner markings; the dust wrapper is also fine.***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please contact us for details.***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        Le Petit Ami illustré par Grau Sala, 290 ex., un sur des 66 sur Japon Nacré

      Pierre de Tartas 1974 - 29 lithographies originales en couleurs par Grau Sala . 6 sont en double page dont deux comportent la signature manuscrite à la mine de plomb de Grau Sala en marge . Cette édition comporte aussi une série de 5 planches signés par l' illustrateur sur Grand Vélin d' Arches et une décomposition des couleurs d' une planche au sein de deux chemises. Cette Edition comporte 8 signatures de Grau Sala (7 sur des lithographies et une sur la page de justification). dont les illustrations font particulièrement vivre un monde ou demi-monde charmant, dans un cadre à la fois somptueux et artificiel. Il semble que cet Espagnol de Paris, ait su lier la grâce spirituelle et futile, qu'il est convenu d'accorder à l'art de Paris, et le sens de la grandeur hérité de sa race. Dans toutes les illustrations qui lui sont dues, on retrouve sans cesse sa prédilection pour les sujets légers, parfois pervers, mais dont la perversité s'efface, dépassée par le goût de l'illustrateur et des auteurs qu'il choisit. 'Petit bijou, ile texte de Paul Léautaud est la tendre évocation du Paris de Toulouse-Lautrec, des cabarets, des femmes faciles au coeur gonflé d'amour. Ce récit autobiographique - malgré la trame joviale - n'en est pas mois déchirant. Il conte la destinée du jeune Léautaud abandonné par sa mère et livré à lui-même quand il était enfant, traînant alors son adolescence de femme publique en femme publique à la recherche désespérante de la mère. Publié par Pierre de Tartas à Paris en 1974 à 290 exemplaires , un des 66 premiers sur Japon Nacré avec le n° 18 . Un fort volume au format in-folio (391 x 297 mm) de 154 pages, en feuilles, sous couverture lithographiée à rabats rempliés dans un très bon état. Superbe réalisation présentée sous un élégant coffret de plexiglas en très bon état. L' intérieur est en très bon état. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

I'm very strong on this region and will be thinking about your press. Robert M. Pirsig Apr 15, 1974." Fine in a fine dust jacket . "Enormously influential journey of self-discovery permeated by philosophical discussion, and startlingly original and disturbing imagery, based on an autobiographical account of a journey across the USA on a motorbike undertaken with his son in 1968; the shifts between narrative, analogy, and philosophical meditation have prompted several critics to see this work as a latter-day Moby-Dick" (Stringer, 532).
