        PIG PIG RIDES

      - McPHAIL,DAVID. PIG PIG RIDES. Offered here are 6 FABULOUS WATERCOLORS used for McPhail's wonderful picture book published by Dutton that features an adorable character named Pig Pig. Two pieces are large measuring 20" wide x 15" high. The other four are 11 x 11", 10 x 11", 9 x 11" and 5 x 11". All depict a glorious humanized Pig Pig. McPhail was born in Newburyport, Mass. He has illustrated the work of others, notably Nancy Willard's Sailing To Cythera which was one of AIGA's 50 Books of the Year in 1974, and he has authored and illustrated a profusion of books on his own. His Captain Toad and the Motorbike was likewise included in AIGA's 1979 show of 50 Best Books. McPhail belongs to the new breed of children's book illustrators, along with James Marshall, Trina Schart Hyman and others - who bring a fresh originality to children's literature. McPhail's style ranges broadly from intricate detail reminiscent of Sendak's and E.H. Shepard's line illustrations to the broad strokes of William Steig. See Hornbook Illustrators of Children's Books vol. 4 p. 4-5, 143.

      New York: Delacorte Press, 1974. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. 296 p. Textual photographs and illustrations. New York: Delacorte Press/Seymour Lawrence, 1974. First edition. "Journalist, party girl, bookworm, artist, muse: by the time she'd hit thirty, Eve Babitz had played all of these roles. Immortalized as the nude beauty facing down Duchamp and as one of Ed Ruscha's Five 1965 Girlfriends, Babitz's first book showed her to be a razor-sharp writer with tales of her own. Eve's Hollywood is an album of vivid snapshots of Southern California's haute bohemians, of outrageously beautiful high-school ingenues and enviably tattooed Chicanas, of rock stars sleeping it off at the Chateau Marmont" (New York Review Books). Octavo. Original black cloth binding, with pink and silver stamping. This copy is inscribed by Mae Babitz, the author's mother, to Helen Wurdemann, longtime director of the Los Angeles Art Association, on the front flyleaf. Light bump to the top of the front board. Some general shelfwear to the dust jacket, with a bit of chipping at the corners and tips; else very good. Scarce.

        Seventeen Photo Albums of Railroad Photography and Ephemera. 1900-1975

      Very Good. Photo Book. Collection of seventeen 20th century photo albums packed with over 1,000 railroad photographs and items of rail ephemera. A lifelong archive of unknown rail enthusiast; possibly an employee of the New York Central line based in Collinwood Ohio, in East Cleveland. Several of the 17 albums are emblazoned with the New York Central logo on front. Photographs have corner mounts with the majority still intact. A handful of photographs have either come out of the mounts or are laid loose. Photos range from home snapshots to commercially sold collectible railroad views to official railroad archival shots. Several of the commercial shots are from the George Melvin collection, Rolling Stock Replicas, J. R. Quinn Railroad Photography and Rebman Photo Service. Sizes from 3 x 3 inches to 2 ¾ x 8 inch panoramas to 8 x 10 inch views. The large majority of photos show locomotives, both still and in motion, but collection also includes views of freight cars, passenger cars, cabooses, wrecked trains and photos of train paintings. Dated images range from the early 20th century to 1974. Home snapshots date primarily from the 50's, 60?s and 70?s. More than 50 distinct rail lines are identifiable including the Penn Central, Western Maryland, Rock Island, Illinois Central, Durham and Southern, Arizona Southern, Bangor & Aroostook, Denver & Rio Grande, Saint Louis & San Francisco, Cadiz Railroad, M, K, & T and many others. Specific locations identified include views from Cincinnati, Binghamton, NY, Cumberland, MD, Erie, PA, Buffalo, NY, Ontario Canada, and the outlier White Sulphur Springs, MT. , and more. It is assumed this rail fan took snaps during vacations and/or work travel. Many views were shot at crossings, bridges and country views and were shot with a good eye for composition and timing. Railroad ephemera make up perhaps 15% of the collection including ticket stubs, rail passes, pamphlets, photo postcards, rail letterheads and cancelled checks. A treasure trove of railroad history, perfect for the rail collector, historian or avid foamer. Scans available upon request. .

        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, 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."

        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.
