[Vol. III]: “Captain James Cook's three voyages of exploration to the Pacific between 1768 and 1780 were the first of the great European voyages of discovery to carry professional artists. The Art of Captain Cook's Voyages contains all the known drawings and paintings done for these voyages as well as a fascinating narrative and explanatory text by Bernard Smith and Rudiger Joppien. ¶ Volume III, describing Cook's final voyages, is of particular interest for its descriptions of the Pacific Northwest of America as well as Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific Islands.” – YUP. ¶ Reviews: “The Joppien and Smith series, already hailed by reviewers of the first two volumes, is in turn a model for how to present scholarly explorations through visual communication. . . . In the spirit of Captain Cook the authors not only have compiled a resource for scholars, they have made it 'entertaining to the generality of readers.'” — David W. Plath, New York Times Book Review. ¶ "The two compilers of this massive collection are to be commended for the exhaustive task they have accomplished."—Dennis Puleston, New Scientist.

The governor of Tripoli is to see to it that the whole city is warned when one of the Dutch States General's ships drops anchor, so that all who own slaves can keep an eye on them to ensure they do not flee to the ship. Merchants under Dutch authority, whether Christians or Jews, are to be allowed to reside in the city unhindered, except for taxation.In very good condition and untrimmed.

        An Archive of 2 books (Tom Lea's The Hands of Cantu INSCRIBED to Stanford President Wallace Sterling and Crume's The World of Paul Crume), each accompanied by a warm TLS to Sterling on Erik Jonsson's personal letterhead

      1985. Two books in dustjackets, each accompanied by an emotional TLS to Stanford President Wallace Sterling on Erik Jonsson's personal letterhead. A glimpse into the relationship between two American icons. J. Erik Jonsson, co-founder and President/Chairman of Texas Instruments (1951-1966), visionary Mayor of Dallas (1964-71) and noted philanthropist. In his May 6, 1985 letter (addressed to 'My dear Wally') Jonsson commiserates about their mutual recoveries from illnesses and shares Cantu (calling it 'a fine reading experience'). He advises he would like to send Sterling a second book (Crume) 'if that much reading now appeals to you.' He concludes 'Grandson Erik - and all my family - join in sending you and your lady our warmest personal wishes. We pray the health of both of you improves daily...' The accompanying book is inscribed 'For Wally - after a partially successful chase for an "exhalation of jets" - Best wishes - Erik'). Having had a reply from Sterling, Jonsson followed up with a June 20 letter accompanying the Crume book; 'The delivery of this letter... will be made by Art Charette with whom I will have the pleasure of two visits (dinner with the Charltons and him and at the office when he and Mr. Riggs are here... I was both thrilled and elated by your wonderful and kind letter...' Jonsson continues how pleased he was to learn that Sterling expects to be in his Stanford office by the fall, and at Sterling's 'renewed invitation to favorite grandson/namesake - Erik.' It is likely Sterling and Jonsson met through Cecil H. Green, a co-founder with Jonsson of Texas Instruments and a major contributor to Stanford. Green was lead donor for the construction of the Cecil H. Green Library, the centerpiece of Stanford's second comprehensive university fundraising campaign that raised $304 million during the mid-1970s, after which Sterling was known as "Stanford's man with the Midas touch". Dr. Sterling died shortly after the second letter (July 1, 1985). 'Grandson Erik' (Erik Charlton) went on to receive a Masters degree from Stanford and as of 2017 is active in several Silicon Valley businesses.

Selected with an introduction by Helen Vendler. 280 pp. Illustrated with an original signed frontispiece etching by Jasper Johns. 4to., 300 x 210 mm, bound in blue goatskin spine and fore-edges with blue and white boards. San Francisco: Arion Press, 1985. |~||~||~||~||~| The Jasper Johns etching was printed at ULAE, Inc. The text comprises a selection of 122 of Stevens' best and most representative poems. This book has been in great demand largely for the frontispiece etching, and due to the fact that Johns signed the etching itself instead of the colophon, if there are one hundred copies of this book with the etching still intact, it would be a miracle.
