        Selected Poems

      London: Anvil Press, , 1981.. London: Anvil Press, 1981. First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Odysseus Elytis on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Chosen and introduced by Edmund Keeley and Philip Sherrard. Selected Poems is drawn from various periods of Elytis' career and traces his development from early surrealism, in which he transforms French influence into a distinct personal voice and mythology, through the dramatic style of The Axion Esti with its blend of spirituality and earthiness, up to the later work in which he experiments with new modes for expressing his perennial themes. Elytis was born in Crete in 1911, and began to publish poetry in the 1930s. He took part in the campaign against the Italian fascists in Albania in 1940-41. He was one of the most prominent poets of the Greek resistance during the Nazi occupation. In 1979 Elytis was awarded the Nobel Prize for his poetry which, "against the background of Greek tradition, depicts with sensuous strength and intellectual clear-sightedness modern man's struggle for freedom and creativeness.

        The Mismeasure of Man

      New York & London: W. W. Norton & Company, 1981. New York & London: W. W. Norton & Company,, 1981. Octavo. Original grey boards, red cloth backstrip, titles to spine in gilt and silver. With the dust jacket. An excellent copy in the jacket with slightly sunned spine panel. First edition, first printing of one of Gould's most famous and controversial books. Inscribed by the author on the half title, "For Larry Owens, best wishes, Stephen Jay Gould". In The Mismeasure of Man, Gould analyses craniometry and IQ testing to point out the unconscious biases and a priori assumptions built into much "scientific" research. Though researchers recently made the case that Gould was incorrect about one aspect of the book's argument, it still stands as an important indictment of biological determinism and a lucid reminder that those engaged in research of any type must be aware of their own privilege and biases. A superb copy, rare in such beautiful condition.

      London: Hutchinson, 1981. Hutchinson, London, 1981. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. Very scarce in this first edition, &#39;The Forgotten Colony&#39; is the extraordinary and eventful story of the British in Argentina - from the isolated, traditional Welsh communities in Patagonia to the chic social world of the Buenos Aires Harrods and the Hurlingham Club.

This is a serious but entertaining account of a much-neglected subject. Contains 15 illustrations. Slight wear to final couple of illustrations. Size: 8vo - over 7.75 - 9.75" tall. 318 pp. Text body is clean, and free from previous owner annotation, underlining and highlighting. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact, but spine is cocked. One slight knick to dust jacket. Previous owner&#39;s signature in ink. Top edge marked. Corners slightly bumped. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: History; Argentina; Modern; ISBN: 0091453100. ISBN/EAN: 9780091453107. Inventory No: 8297. .

        Cien Años de Soledad (One Hundred Years of Solitude); [with:] Cronica de una muerte anunciada (Chronicle of a Death Foretold).

      Buenos Aires: Editorial Sudamericana, 1967/Bogota-Colombia: Editorial La Oveja Negra, 1981 - 2 works together, octavo. Cien años: perfect bound octavo; white card wrappers as issued, pictorial decoration to front wrapper in black, orange, and blue, titles to spine and text to rear wrapper in black. Extremities rubbed, spine creased and rolled, wear and some small marks to rear wrapper, leaves tanned at margins but otherwise clean; a very good copy. Cronica: original navy boards, titles to spine in white. With the dust jacket. Ends and corners nicked, mild toning to margins of leaves, but an excellent copy in the somewhat chipped jacket. Both copies warmly and wittily inscribed by Marquez in 1981, evidently to an old girlfriend and her husband, the first on the first blank "Para Silvia, de mi corazón cuando me quería a mí y no a ese hombre; con toda mi alma de antes, GABM 1981" ("To Silvia, from the bottom of my heart, when she used to love me and not that man; with all my erstwhile love, GABM 1981"), and the second on the dedication page, "Para Silvia y Rodolfo, este libro que los persigue desde hace mucho tiempo por todos los aeropuertos del mundo; con un abrazo grande, GABM.Z 81" ("To Silvia and Rodolfo, this book that has been chasing you for a long time through all the world's airports, with a big hug, GABM.Z 81"). Cien años de soledad is the true first edition in the correctly illustrated wrappers (with the ship and three yellow flowers, changed in later printings at Marquez's insistence). Cronica de una muerte anunciada is the Colombian first edition, first published simultaneously in Colombia, Mexico, and Spain (on the "follow the flag" principle, the Colombian is the most desirable).

        Codex Seraphinianus Deluxe Edition

      Milano: Rizzoli, 2013. Milano: Rizzoli. 2013. First Edition. Hardcover. 9780847843091 . New revised edition with several additional drawings. Originally published by Franco Maria Ricci in 1981. Limited to 600 numbered copies: 300 for the Italian market, and 300 for the U.S. market. This copy (#21) is part of the Italian edition, which precedes the American edition. Includes the limited, signed Ta-Roc print (#96 of 150). Bright red decorated cloth, yellow endpapers, silk bookmark. The Decodex, a small booklet in a pocket affixed to the rear pastedown endpaper with text in Italian, English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese and Russian, contains a short introduction by Serafini in which he explains how the Codex came to be. Apparently, a cat was actively involved in the creative process. The book is a masterpiece of fantasy, painstakingly illustrating a non-existent world and written in a non-existent language which, at times, seems to be a surrealist parody of our own world. Serafini, an architect and graphic designer, wrote and illustrated the volumes during a two-year period in the late 1970s. In the beautiful red cloth clamshell box with gold decorations. Both the book and the box are in fine condition. This copy comes with the original publisher&#39;s cardboard box as well. ; Folio; Signed by Author .
