        GRIPPED BY DROUGHT

      [Missoula: McMillan], 1990., 1990. Artwork for first U.S. edition measures 13-1/8" x 20-1/4." The artwork is done by Joe Servello and signed by him in the lower right hand corner. The work is fine and suitable to be matted and framed. This is the story about the impact of a three years' drought on the gigantic Atlas sheep station. The hero is Feng Ching-wei, a diligent station manager of Chinese descent, who looks after the interests of his lifelong friend Frank Mayne. Mayne's intelligence and leadership qualities, sorely needed during the drought, are nullified by his preoccupation with the emotional complications of his loveless marriage. Because of Feng's strength of character and discretion, Atlas is saved from financial ruin, and Frank Mayne gets a new lease on life. An excellent story!!

        [Cover title]: Scream/Press Proofreading Copy #1 of Clive Barker's Books of Blood [I-III]

      Los Angeles: Scream/Press 1990. Oblong quarto. Red buckram gilt. Massive volume with typed or computer generated sheets of the text, very heavily hand corrected by an editor for the first American edition. Barker's debut collection of stories for which he was immediately hailed as a new leading voice in horror fiction. Bound in is a memo from the publisher "Regarding These Production Instruments: Clive Barker's Books of Blood I-III" with full notes on what the process was, and how the proofreader determined that the first edition "...Sphere text was loaded with glaring typos and Clive's writing was technically very poor, containing a vast multiplicity of common grammatical errors such as split infinitives, subject/verb disagreement, dangling participles." He also notes that Barker was unfailingly polite in the process and invariably deferred on the corrections, and that the subsequent American editions do not incorporate these corrections. The corrections are very extensive, usually a dozen or so per page with the odd post-it note or other additions to the text. A unique volume that provides insight into the occasionally DIY nature of science fiction publishing.

Originally published in a small 27 volume Italian edition to commemorate the five-hundredth anniversary of the discovery of America by Christopher Columbus in 1492, Nuova Raccolta Columbiana in the English edition is considered the definitive scholarly set. Here the set is complete in 10 volumes in 14 parts. Vol. VIII and X will be issued only in CD-rom format. Besides the important international scholars, it comprises all of Columbus' journals and reports, with maps and charts for an accurate historical and geographical reconstruction of his voyages; other works by writers who were contemporaries (or shortly thereafter his death), newly edited documents with updated research and some new insights on geographical aspects of his discoveries and personal vision of events and the vicissitudes of all four voyages. The English edition was translated under the direction of Ohio State and a team of American experts. The final two volumes will be published on CD-Rom. The volumes are as follows: I. The journal; account of the first voyage and discovery of the Indies (2 vol) ; II. The discovery of the new world in the writings of Peter Martyr of Anghiera; Vol. III. Ligururia and Genoa in the time of Columbus; Vol. IV. History concerning the life and deeds of Columbus (2 vol); Vol. V. Christopher Columbus's discoveries in the testimonials of Diego Alvarez Chancha and Andres Bernaldez; Vol. VI. Accounts and letters of the second, third and fourth voyages (2 vol) ; Vol. VII. The ships of Christopher Columbus; [Vol. VIII will be issued only in CD]; Vol. IX. Columbia Atlas of the Great Discovery (note: 38 x 50 cm); [Vol. X will be issued only in CD]; Vol. XI. Columbia iconography; Vol. XII. The Genoese cartographic tradition and Christopher Columbus. Slipcases were issued on the two volume sets only and are present here. All volumes bound in original paper covered boards. A fine set. Size: Quartos with Folio Atlas
