      New York: Crown Publishers, 1984. First edition. Oblong quarto, original cloth, illustrated. Translated by Ralph Manheim. Inscribed by the author on the half-title page with a large drawing of the Nutcracker, "For Herb, who is the original Drosselmeier, and who inspired me--always! happy Nutcracker!" The recipient was Herb Hosmer, a close personal friend of Sendak's. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of wear. The tale of Nutcracker, written by E.T.A. Hoffmann in 1816, has fascinated and inspired artists, composers, and audiences for over two hundred years. This beautiful book preserves the compelling vision of Hoffman's classic Christmas tale that acclaimed illustrator Maurice Sendak created for the Pacific Northwest Ballet. "A classic, new and complete. One of the ten best illustrated children's books of the year" (New York Times Book Review).

        Choice and Consequence: Perspectives of an Errant Economist.

      Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 1984. First edition of the Nobel Prize-winning economist's important compilation of essays. Octavo, original cloth. Warmly inscribed by Thomas Schelling on the title page. Near fine in a very good dust jacket with light rubbing. With an ingenious, often startling approach, Thomas Schelling brings new perspectives to problems ranging from drug abuse, abortion, and the value people put on their lives to organized crime, airplane hijacking, and automobile safety. One chapter is a clear and elegant exposition of game theory as a framework for analyzing social problems. Another plays with the hypothesis that our minds are not only our problem-solving equipment but also the organ in which much of our consumption takes place. What binds together the different subjects is the author's belief in the possibility of simultaneously being humane and analytical, of dealing with both the momentous and the familiar. Choice and Consequence was written for the curious, the puzzled, the worried, and all those who appreciate intellectual adventure. "Whether one is looking for evidence and insights on the rationality or the irrationality of man, Choice and Consequence is one of the very best places to look... Mr. Schelling's book is a superb place to get a sense of both the need for and the dangers of the assumption of rationality" (New York Times).

An uncommonly collectible copy. The Aubrey–Maturin series is a sequence of nautical historical novels—20 completed and one unfinished—set during the Napoleonic Wars and centering on the friendship between Captain Jack Aubrey of the Royal Navy and his ship's surgeon (and spy), Stephen Maturin. This tenth installment continues the story of Aubrey's exploits during the American War of 1812. The novel provided some episodes for the 2003 Peter Weir film, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World. Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        El Libro de las Profesias

      Testimonio CompañÃa Editorial y el Patrimonio Nacional, Madrid 1984 - Madrid: Testimonio CompañÃÂa Editorial y el Patrimonio Nacional, 1984. Facsimile. Hardcover. Fine. Quarto. Bound in decorative leather with Moorish-styled brass accent studs on board. 30x22 cm. Housed in a grey and black slipcase. Limited edition, this is number 384/750 (of which only 683 were for sale). Written after his third new world voyage (1501-1505), it is a journal of apocalyptic prophecies and observations by the aging explorer as he neared the end of his life. An impeccably done exact replica of the original handwritten copy housed in the Biblioteca Capitular and Columbina in Seville. The artists who prepared the work under the direction of reknowned book artist Cesar Olmos faithfully and painstakingly recreated every nuance from the original: tears, edgewear, silverfishing, and - yes - even tape repairs. A marvellous book, as worthy as an artists' book as a glimpse into history. Does not include the companion study volume. In fine condition (naturally excepting the deliberately contrived "flaws") in a slipcase with one bumped corner and minor edgewear.
