(Entre 1782 y 1785, Baltasar Jaime Martínez Compañón, Obispo de Trujillo en el Virreinato del Perú, realizó un viaje a través de la extensa región que estaba a su cargo. Como testimonio de su travesía, dejó una serie de ilustraciones a color que muestran aspectos muy dversos de los territorios que formaban la Diócesis de Trujillo. De entre las más de mil cuatrocientas imágenes conservadas, se encuentran las partituras de 20 piezas de música popular que Martínez Compañón transcribió durante su viaje, aunque su prioridad fue tomar apuntes para una historia completa de la diócesis de Trujillo. Así en el documento hay una gran cantidad de ilustraciones que representan las más variadas facetas de la vida en la zona noroeste del Perú: desde plantas, animales y mapas hasta retratos de personajes importantes, diferentes grupos étnicos y una amplia variedad de costumbres de aquella región) (85609).

      St. Martin's Press, 1991, Wrappers, Book Condition: Near Fine, First edition. A Very Good + to Near Fine copy of the SCARCE ADVANCE UNCORRECTED PROOF for the first edition, first printing (spine lightly sunned, light pushes to the wrapper leading edges and leading corners, minor soiling), SIGNED BY STEVEN SAYLOR on the title page; Steven Saylor's notable debut book: a novel set in the final decades of the Roman Empire and being the first work in his Roma Sub Roma series. In the novel, Cicero, while defending the character Sextus Roscius from charges of patricide, hires the Roman sleuth Gordianus the Finder to assist him in determining the truth of the matter. The novel is based on a trial oration given by Cicero in his real-life 80 BC successful defense of Sextus Roscius against the charge that he had killed his father. Copies of the Advance Uncorrected Proofs are rather scarce, and signed copies are, in our experience, quite scarce indeed.

      Blackwell Publishing, 1991. First edition, later printing of the re-issue of Markowitz's ground breaking work. Octavo, original black cloth. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Inscribed by the author. "Modern portfolio theory gives a rigorous mathematical justification for the time honored investment maxim that diversification is a sensible strategy for individuals who wish to reduce their risks. Invented in the 1950s by Harry Markowitz in this book, the theory provides a firm foundation for the intuition that you should not put all your eggs in one basket and shows investors how to combine securities to minimize risk."

Housed in a slipcase made of tough gray linen-rayon. Printed letterpress on paper made by hand to resemble the sort of stock produced in the 1920s in the Soviet Union. To attain this effect, Russian newspapers were cut into minute pieces and incorporated with rags and cotton pulp with individual Cyrillic letters floated onto the mixture before the process was completed. Illustrated with six etchings by Yuri Kuper printed in Paris on Hahnemuhle paper by Aldo Crommelynck, whose superlative techniques, inherited from the European crafts tradition, have been used by such artists as Picasso, Jasper Johns, and Jim Dine. SIGNED by the illustrator on the colophon page. Copy #243 of only 250, one of the smallest limitations of the club. Monthly Letter laid in. Spine evenly sunned with a couple of small rubbed spots.
