        The Butterfly's Ball and the Grasshopper's Feast

      (Watertown, MA): Bromer, Anne & David, 1977. (24)pp.The text is printed on Japanese paper with ornamentation in green. Wood engravings by Sarah Chamberlain, as her first miniature book commission. The first miniature book published by the Bromers. Midori Kunikata-Cockram captures the whimsical nature of the text, which was the first English poem for children intended for sheer amusement. The front and rear boards are covered with parchment, on which the artist has hand-drawn a pattern of vines and flowers in crimson ink depicting the insects and small animals attending the feast. Delicate onlays of black morocco create the silhouette of a vine climbing up the book's crimson morocco spine. Inside, endpapers printed with oak leaves and cut-out leaves with hand-drawn shading in pastel reference the oak tree in the poem, beneath which the revels were held. Housed in a crimson suede-lined box, the exterior of which is covered with paper hand-tooled in a foliate pattern and gilt-titled to the crimson morocco spine. A parchment tab painted with a butterfly on one side, and a grasshopper on the reverse, helps to lift the book out of the box. With the binder's blind-stamped mark to the penultimate endleaf, and signed by Chamberlain to the colophon. Extremely fine. (2 1/2 by 2 1/8; 63x53mm).

        The View from Serendip

      Random House, New York 1977 - First edition. Fine in fine dustwrapper with slight toning to the edges of the flaps. Inscribed by Arthur C. Clarke to his protege, one-time secretary, and longtime friend Ian Macauley; "To Ian, this souvenir of a quarter century! All the best, Arthur. NYC 11 Oct. 77." Macauley, an award-winning *New York Times* journalist, was the dedicatee of Clarke's first published hardcover novel, *Islands in the Sky* (1952). He also edited Clarke's book of collected essays, *Greetings, Carbon-Based Bipeds!* (2000). Clarke wrote the last chapter of *Childhood End*, while visiting Macauley in Atlanta, where he was reportedly greatly influenced by their discussions. A nice association copy of this miscellany, including speculations on space, science and the sea, a short science-fiction story, and "an equatorial autobiography."

        The New Mickey Mouse Club Book

      New York, New York, U.S.A.: Grosset & Dunlap 1977 - 64 pages, fully illustrated with black & white photos and drawings. A history of the original Mickey mouse Club with an introduction to the "New Mickey Mouse Club and the new Mouseketeers. "In the 1970s, Walt Disney Productions revived the concept but modernized the show cosmetically, with a disco re-recording of the theme song and a more ethnically diverse group of young cast members. The sets were brightly colored and more simplistic than the detailed black and white artwork of the original. Like the original, nearly each day's episode included a vintage cartoon, though usually color ones from the late 1930s and onward. Serials were usually old Disney movies, cut into segments for twice-weekly inclusion. Movies included Third Man on the Mountain, The Misadventures of Merlin Jones and its sequel The Monkey's Uncle (both starring Tommy Kirk), Emil and the Detectives (retitled The Three Skrinks), Tonka (retitled A Horse Called Comanche), The Horse Without a Head (about a toy horse), and Toby Tyler (starring Kevin Corcoran). In addition, one original serial was produced, The Mystery of Rustler's Cave, starring Kim Richards and Robbie Rist. Theme days were: Monday: Who, What, Why, Where, When and How Tuesday: Let's Go Wednesday: Surprise Thursday: Discovery Friday: Showtime (at Disneyland, with performers usually at Plaza Gardens)" In Near Fine condition with a square tight spine and binding. Clean and bright both inside and out. One of the rarest Disney books to have come out of the 1970`s, and would make an excellent addition to any Disney collection.

It is hoped that another orientation might later be scheduled and you will be given first consideration for that program. Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter. Sincerely (Thomas P. Stafford) Thomas P. Stafford Major General, USAF Commander." W. J. Valentine - Publisher, Antelope Valley Ledger-Gazette, Lancaster, Ca Stafford was selected as an astronaut by NASA in 1962. In December, 1965, he was pilot of Gemini 6 and he and commander Wally Schirra flew the first space rendezvous mission, closing to within a foot of Gemini 7, with astronauts Frank Borman and Jim Lovell aboard. He commanded Gemini 9, with Gene Cernan as pilot, in June, 1966, rendezvousing with an alternate docking target after the Atlas boosting their original Agena target failed. They were unable to dock with the alternate because a protective fiberglass shroud had failed to separate completely, but they flew three different types of rendezvous with it. Stafford commanded the Apollo 10 lunar orbit flight in May 1969, with John Young and Gene Cernan. He and Cernan separated the Lunar Module and approached to within 10 miles of the surface, paving the way for the Apollo 11 crew to make the first moon landing two months later. Stafford logged his fourth space mission as commander of the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project in July 1975. He, Deke Slayton, and Vance Brand linked in orbit with a Soyuz carrying cosmonauts Alexei Leonov and Valery Kubasov. Stafford returned to the Air Force and assumed command of the Air Force Flight Test Center in 1975. He was promoted to lieutenant general in 1978 and was assigned as Deputy Chief of Staff, Research Development and Acquisition, Headquarters, USAF, Washington, D.C. He retired from the Air Force in 1979. He co-founded the Technical Consulting Firm of Stafford, Burke, and Hecker, Inc. in Alexandria, Virginia. He sits on the Board of Directors of six corporations listed on the New York Stock Exchange, one listed on the American Exchange, and two others, including Seagate Technology, Inc. Seagate Technology is the largest independent hard disk drive maker in the world. He has served as an advisor to a number of governmental agencies including NASA and the Air Force Systems Command. He was a defense advisor to Ronald Reagan during the presidential campaign and a member of the Reagan transition team. He served on the National Research Council¿s Aeronautics and Space Engineering Board; the Committee on NASA Scientific and Technological Program Reviews and Vice President Quayle¿s Space Policy Advisory Council. He was Chairman of the NASA Advisory Council Task Force on Shuttle-Mir Rendezvous and Docking Missions, is currently Chairman of the NASA Advisory Council Task Force on ISS Operational Readiness, and Co-Chairman of the Stafford-Covey Space Shuttle Return to Flight Task Group.

        Poems of Life

      Watertown, MA: Bromer, Anne and David, 1977. 35pp. This publisher's copy of the regular edition was bound by Sayaka Fukuda in a quietly beautiful binding that reflects Emily Dickinson's life. The binding is contained within a folding box covered with floral-patterned cloth, referencing the poet's passion for plants and gardening and the influence of nature in her work. The surface of the cloth is covered with a very fine tinted Japanese Tengu paper, toning down brightness and alluding to the theme of death that was ever-present in Dickinson's life and poetry. According to Fukuda, the subtlety of the design reflects the poet's reclusiveness. Still, "Emily Dickinson's literary talent inevitably shines through, which is expressed by quiet but assertive gold tooling and paper onlay." Gold tooling continues, in dotted tendrils, from the box surrounding the book onto the binding, inviting the reader to Dickinson's poems. The binding features layers of pale, rippling Suminigashi, Japanese ink-marbled paper, and shining gold leaf. Fukuda writes that these elements represent Dickinson's "multiplying influence and recognition in the outer world. Despite her withdrawn life, her words traveled...as if a drop in the water caused a ripple to travel endlessly." The binder also notes that she chose to keep the page edges white, in homage to Dickinson's fondness for dressing in white. The color palette Fukuda chose for the binding derives from the final poem in the book, "I'll tell you how the sun rose --", which describes shades of amethyst, purple, yellow, and gray at dawn and dusk. The book itself is handsomely printed on handmade Hayle paper in Bruce Rogers Arrighi and Centaur types. A red initial begins each of the nine poems included. This was the second miniature book to be published by the Bromers. Sayaka Fukuda was born in Tokyo and studied book arts and conservation in London. Named a licentiate of Designer Bookbinders, Fukuda was awarded "Highly Commended" in the organization's 2006 competition. Extremely fine. (2 5/16 by 1 9/16; 59x41mm).

        The Butterfly's Ball and the Grasshopper's Feast

      (Watertown, MA): Bromer, Anne & David, 1977. (24)pp.The text is printed on Japanese paper with ornamentation in green. Wood engravings by Sarah Chamberlain, as her first miniature book commission. The first miniature book published by the Bromers. Midori Kunikata-Cockram captures the whimsical nature of the text, which was the first English poem for children intended for sheer amusement. The front and rear boards are covered with parchment, on which the artist has hand-drawn a pattern of vines and flowers in crimson ink depicting the insects and small animals attending the feast. Delicate onlays of black morocco create the silhouette of a vine climbing up the book's crimson morocco spine. Inside, endpapers printed with oak leaves and cut-out leaves with hand-drawn shading in pastel reference the oak tree in the poem, beneath which the revels were held. Housed in a crimson suede-lined box, the exterior of which is covered with paper hand-tooled in a foliate pattern and gilt-titled to the crimson morocco spine. A parchment tab painted with a butterfly on one side, and a grasshopper on the reverse, helps to lift the book out of the box. With the binder's blind-stamped mark to the penultimate endleaf, and signed by Chamberlain to the colophon. Extremely fine. (2 1/2 by 2 1/8; 63x53mm).

        The History of Middle Earth, Volumes 1-12, and The Silmarillion

      Allen & Unwin/Unwin Hyman/Harper Collins 1977, 1983-1996, London - A complete set of the first editions of these tales, poems, and songs underlay The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Tolkien began writing these tales while in college, 40 years before LOTR was published. He was a student of philology, the study of historical linguistics and the rules by which languages evolve, and in his writing he invented archaic languages and the stories told in those languages, and then tracked the evolution of both the stories and the language until they became the legends and mythology that informed Middle Earth. This is part of what gives the Trilogy its powerful sense of reality and immediacy, but the stories are compelling in and of themselves, beyond the degree to which they inform his masterpiece. In particular, these stories, most of them written between 1913 and the early 1940s, give the lie to the simplistic notion that Tolkien's trilogy is a mere analogue for the conflicts involved in World War II. If anything, it was the First World War -- with its senseless, mechanized destruction on a heretofore unimaginable scale -- that influenced Tolkien in his view that battle between the forces of good and evil was not a struggle of ideologies so much as one between a world view in harmony with nature and one that focused on unchecked industrial development. Published over the course of more than a dozen years, complete sets are difficult to assemble as all of the volumes had small first printings, and some were positively tiny -- 1500 copies or so. Volume 5 has a small nick at the upper rear spine fold; otherwise a fine set in fine, unclipped dust jackets. The Silmarillion and Volumes 1, 2 and 4 have no printed prices, as issued; Volume 4 has an A&U price sticker. Volumes 10 and 11 have printed prices on the flaps (in contrast to the unprinted export edition dust jackets, which, by the usual standards of the publication process, probably preceded those with printed prices). The ultimate history of the worlds that underlay The Lord of the Rings. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
