        ORIGINAL ART: FROGGIE WENT A-COURTING [CHASED INTO THE LAKE]

      - CONOVER,CHRIS. ORIGINAL ART: FROGGIE WENT A-COURTING [CHASED INTO THE LAKE p.[19-20]]. Offered here is a double page watercolor used in Conover's Froggie Went A-Courting published by Ferrar Straus Giroux in 1986. It is the story of a handsome humanized, seafaring frog's wooing of Miss Mousie. An entire world of humanized creatures is created around this traditional song with text retold by Conover. Reviewed by School Library Journal as a 'tour de force.'. This illustration measures 15 1/2" wide x 9 1/2", signed. The scene shows all of the wedding party in the water after being chased by Tom Cat. Froggie has saved the day by capturing the cat in a net. Its a fabulous image that you'd never get tired of looking at. Conover has been illustrating children's books since 1974. Her work is noted for rich colors and incredible attention to detail, some of which is executed using a magnifying glass for accuracy. There is plenty to look at but without the overcrowding that hampers so many modern children's books. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

Double page decorative map endpapers front and rear. 22 Africa images (incl the big five), 6 of Asia (mainly sheep) and 26 North America. The Asia section was authored y Weatherby Award winner Basil Bradbury and the N America section by Jim Carmichel; the Africa section by noted National Geographic photographer/author Philip Kahl. This is one of the most sumptuous limited ediutions produced in the past 25 years or 30 years. No expense was spared in taking these pictures of the world's great game animals and making them into a book that can be enjoyed by 500 lucky individuals. A number of remaqued copies were likely purchased or given to Swanson collectors as copies almost never come up for sale. The shipping weight of this book will exceed 30 pounds so there will be substantion postage and insurance charges depending upon delivery method and location.

        O Rio de Janeiro. A photographic journal

      1986 - (196)pp. New-York, Knopf, 1986, in-folio, (196)pp, couverture de l'éditeur illustré de reproductions photgraphiques et imprimée en violet (couverture très légèrement salie), Première édition de cet imposant journal photographique de B. Weber qui compte 130 planches dont 122 de reproductions photographiques en pleine page ou sur double page, et 8 de dessins en couleurs de Richard Giglio. Les tirages photos furent réalisés en noir et blanc, en couleurs, ou sur des tons variés (violet, sépia, bleu, rouge et vert). Les clichés ne présentent pas la ville de Rio, ses quartiers et sa population mais les rencontres faites par le photographe américain lors de son séjour dans cette ville : le champion de Jiu Jitsu Rickson Gracie, le surfer et photographe Alberto Serejo, etc. Les personnes photographiées par Weber présentent toujours des physionomies jeunes et athlétiques, des corps musclés et beaux que l’artiste se plait à saisir dans toute leur étendu. Du fait de la répétition de clichés de corps dénudés, l'ouvrage finit par célébrer une certaine esthétique féminine et masculine, et, a fortiori, le plaisir qui lui est intrinsèquement attaché. Parfait état général [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Arab Bulletin

      Gerrards Cross, Bucks: Archive Editions,, 1986. Bulletin of the Arab Bureau in Cairo, 1916-1919. Including indexes for 1916, 1917 and 1918, and the supplementary notes on the Middle East nos. 1-4, 1919-1920. With a new introduction and explanatory notes. 4 volumes, octavo. Original black crushed morocco-effect paper boards, spines lettered and ruled in gilt, top edges gilt, red and gold endbands. Occasional sketch-maps Corners very lightly bumped, an excellent set. Second edition (O'Brien's "first English edition"), trade issue. A complete facsimile of the Arab Bureau's secret bulletin, first issued in June 1916 with an initial circulation of 26 copies; this edition, prepared by Cambridge librarian and Arabist Robin Bidwell, the first practicably obtainable, with just one complete run of the original bulletin traced in commerce (Sotheby's, New York, 1968). The Arab Bureau was established in the spring of 1916 "to co-ordinate Middle East intelligence and to spread propaganda while countering the effects of hostile propaganda, particularly among Muslim troops" (Bidwell, introduction, p. xxiii). Previously there had been no means of co-operation between the Foreign Office, which oversaw operations in Egypt and Western Arabia, the India Office (Mesopotamia and Eastern Arabia), and the War Office (operating in areas where neither organisation had a particular remit). Lawrence served as the first editor of the bulletin and later became a contributor from the field during the Arab Campaign; other contributors included H. St J. Philby, Ronald Storrs, Gertrude Bell, who served as the Bulletin's Mesopotamia correspondent from Basra, and David Hogarth, whose archaeological expeditions provided cover for the creation of a British intelligence network across the Levant. In a retrospective in the hundredth issue of the bulletin (20 August 1918), Hogarth credited Lawrence with the original suggestion that the Arab Bureau publish a regular summary of its intelligence activities, and summarised the aims of the publication as threefold: "Firstly, it aims at giving reasoned, and as far as possibly definitive, summaries of Intelligence, primarily about the Hejaz and the area of the Area of the Arab Revolt Â… and secondarily about the other Arabic-speaking countries Â… Secondly, it aims at giving authoritative appreciations of political situations and questions in the area with which it can deal at first hand. Thirdly it aims at recording, and so preserving, all fresh historical data concerning Arabs and Arab-speaking lands, and, incidentally, rescuing from oblivion any older facts which may help to explain the actual situation: likewise, any data of geographical or other scientific interest, which may be brought to light by our penetration of the Arab countries during the present war". An indispensable resource for the Middle Eastern theatre in the First World War, and containing "the first published records by Lawrence of the Arab campaign" (O'Brien). There was also a deluxe issue of 25 numbered copies.

        ORIGINAL ART: FROGGIE WENT A-COURTING [FROG & MISS MOUSIE IN PARK]

      - CONOVER,CHRIS. ORIGINAL ART: FROGGIE WENT A-COURTING [FROG AND MISS MOUSIE IN PARK p. [5]]. Offered here is the full page watercolor used opposite the second page of verse in Conover's Froggie Went A-Courting published by Ferrar Strauss Giroux in 1986. It is the story of a handsome humanized, seafaring frog's wooing of Miss Mousie. An entire world of humanized creatures is created around this traditional song with text retold by Conover. Reviewed by School Library Journal as a 'tour de force.'. This illustration measures 7" wide x 9 1/4", signed. Admiral Frog and Miss Mousie are in a lush manicured garden, gazing at a large statue of Uncle Rat. Two little mice are playing croquet in the background. Charming. Conover has been illustrating children's books since 1974. Her work is noted for rich colors and incredible attention to detail, some of which is executed using a magnifying glass for accuracy. There is plenty to look at but without the overcrowding that hampers so many modern children's books. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
