        Long Walk To Freedom: The Autobiography of Nelson Mandela.

      South Africa: MacDonald Purnell, 1994. First South African edition, early printing of this autobiography of one of the great moral leaders of the twentieth century. Octavo, original black cloth, pictorial endpapers. Boldly signed "NMandela 15.5.95" on the half-title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. "The Nelson Mandela who emerges from his memoir is considerably more human than the icon of legend Mandela is, on the evidence of his amazing life, neither a messiah nor a moralist nor really a revolutionary but a pragmatist to the core, a shrewd balancer of honor and interests. He is, to use a word unhappily fallen into disrepute, a politician, though one distinguished from lesser practitioners of his calling mainly by his unwavering faith in his ultimate objective, ending white minority rule" (New York Times).

        Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space.

      New York: Random House, 1994. First edition of what many consider Sagan's finest work. Quarto, original cloth. Signed by Carl Sagan on the half-title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Jacket design by David Hardy. Future generations will look back on our epoch as the time when the human race finally broke into a radically new frontier--space. In Pale Blue Dot Sagan traces the spellbinding history of our launch into the cosmos and assesses the future that looms before us as we move out into our own solar system and on to distant galaxies beyond. The exploration and eventual settlement of other worlds is neither a fantasy nor luxury, insists Sagan, but rather a necessary condition for the survival of the human race. "Fascinating...memorable....revealing... perhaps the best of Carl Sagan's Books" (The Washington Post Book World).

Quartos, first edition, pp. xxxviii, 565; Volume 2 is unpaginated plate book, baby-blue cloth boards with white stamped lettering on spines and fronts, slipcase, halftone and color photos. "By making material not readily accessible available in this detailed and carefully structured form, Carr has performed a considerable service to scholars interested not only in Church but in many aspects of nineteenth-century American landscape painting." -- Gilian Wohlauer, New England Quarterly This is a large project: a comprehensive scholarly catalogue of Church's works of art still at Olana State Historical Site, his former home in upstate New York. Divided into 16 chronological sections, it covers 736 drawings, paintings and prints, spanning nearly 60 years of his life. The items, each of them illustrated in the catalogue, range from doodles in his schoolboy textbooks and exercise books, to student works done under Thomas Cole, to important studio paintings exhibited during Church's lifetime, and pencil sketches and finished paintings executed in Mexico as late as two years before his death in April 1900. The holdings are mostly concentrated at the beginning of Church's career, between 1844 and 1850, and toward the end, between 1880 and 1898, but all phases of his travels and his art are represented, including preparations for his major studio paintings.

        Exploration of the soul

      [London : the artist], 1994. Quarto, lettered flush-cut boards, pp [40], two original photographs of Tracey Emin and her brother Paul as children, original lithograph of a bird perched on a penis, inscribed by the artist on the front free endpaper 'I wanted this to be the truth Tracey Emin 1994' and editioned out of 200 copies, housed in a calico cloth bag with hand-stitched initials 'T.E.' to front panel. An artist's book by the Young British Artist made in the mid-nineties, at the point of her spectacular emergence as a major artist on the world stage. In typical Emin style, Exploration of the soul is a self-revelation dealing with childhood, family, sexuality and human relationships. Her experiences are laid bare and authenticated through direct expression. The variety of media employed (printmaking, text, photography, and particularly hand-stitching) is distinctively Emin and, as with most of her work, Exploration of the soul interweaves ideas such as home, gender and banality with the theme of the pervasive and fundamental power of the desire for sex.

        Chinese Ceramics from the Meiyintang Collection Volume 1 and 2

      Azymuth Editions, 1994 Book. Good. Hardcover. English text; Title and captions in English and Chinese; Hardcover (cloth); limited edition of 1000 copies, 2 volumes, 688 pages, 957 color illustrations, cloth.; 27 x 37; 6.451 Kg; Lacking the slipcase. Both volumes show signs of wear on the exterior, namely some wear marks on the spines, front and back cover. The outside text block shows also signs of wear. The interior is in very good condition. CURRENTLY OUT OF PRINT.; “"The first volume of this catalogue contains mainly earthenwares and stonewares from the Neolithic period to the Song dynasty (AD 960-1279), the second porcelains from the Yuan (AD1279-1368) to the Qing dynasty. Although the two volumes belong together, they are conceived as individual books, each with its own working bibliography. Volume One contains small maps of China, highlighting the most important, if not the only, regions of ceramic manufacture in different periods; these were not necessary in Volume Two, where most pieces come from kiln centre, Jingdezhen in Jiangxi province. In Volume One attributions to the places of manufacture are given as precisely as possible, distinctions being made between a definitely identified kiln, a province, and a more general area of manufacture. The reference illustrations in Volume One show objects in other materials, also from the Meiyintang collection. In Volume Two all reign marks not illustrated in colour are included in an appendix; only those distinct enough for clear reproduction are repeated under the catalogue entry itself."“ excerpt from the introduction by Regina Krahl..

        The countries and tribes of the Persian Gulf.London, Harrison and Sons, 1919[=1920]. 2 volumes. Large 8vo (24.5 x 18.5 cm). With a frontispiece portrait of the author and 8 plates with reproductions of photographs. Original publisher's grey cloth.

      Diba, p. 45; cf. New Arabian studies II (1994), pp. 31-33. Second printing of the first edition of a history of the Persian Gulf and its surrounding countries by the British army officer Samuel Barrett Miles (1838-1914), "a most significant contribution to the European knowledge of Oman" ( New Arabian Studies ). It starts with the ancient civilizations in the region, followed by chapters on the advent of Islam on the Gulf coast, the Portuguese era in eastern Arabia, and various dynasties, including the Yaareba and the Al-Bu Saeedi dynasty. Other chapters describe the commerce and economy of the Gulf, its pearl fishery and the different tribes living there, with an entry on the Al-Kowasim, "a powerful Maadic tribe occupying the sea ports on the Pirate coast" (p. 430) and the Beni Yas and "their two towns Abu Thabi and De" (p. 438). The book remains an authoritative source on Omani history and provides a storehouse of knowledge for any reader interested in the Gulf states. The final two lines of text on the title-page have been removed by a previous owner, including the note "Reprinted 1920". Title-page of first volume browned and some occasional minor foxing in both volumes. Binding slightly rubbed along the extremities. Overall in very good condition.

        A Tribute to the Pioneers of Animation: Commemorative Program [*SIGNED* by 26 noted figures of the animation world]

      Privately Issued, [Los Angeles] 1994 - [virtually flawless condition, with just the tiniest bit of edgewear]. 64-page booklet commemorating a banquet held on September 1, 1994, in honor of 29 "pioneers of animation" (many, but not all, of whom were animators), the majority of whom were in attendance -- except for four who had passed away earlier in the year, while the event was still being planned. The 26 signatures present in the program were collected by the publisher on labels, which have been carefully affixed to the appropriate pages, each beneath a photograph of the individual and opposite a one-page summary of his career and achievements in the animation field. ("His," yes: they're all men.) Contained in the book are the signatures (on labels) of the following: Bob Allen, Ed Benedict, Dick Bickenbach, Preston Blair, Shamus Culhane, Marc Davis, Ron Dias, Eyvind Earle, Bob Givens, Bill Hurtz, Ollie Johnston, Paul Julian, Ward Kimball, Walter Lantz (who died in March 1994, but whose signature here is dated 1982, although I can't vouch for its source or its authenticity), Bill Melendez, Maurice Noble, Ken O'Connor, Bill Peet, Virgil Ross, Irv Spence, Frank Thomas, Richard Thomas, Myron Waldman, Clair Weeks, Lou Zukor, and Morey Zukor. The only person who seems to have missed his label-signing assignment was Joe Grant, and two of those (Izzy Ellis and Jack Hannah) who died before the event are represented by photographs of their signatures and handprints in cement at the "Animation Walk of Fame." Anyone who knows anything about animation will recognize most of these names -- which include four of Disney's renowned "Nine Old Men" (all the survivors of that group at that time) -- and will appreciate the significance and uniqueness of this gathering of signatures. All of these gentlemen have now passed from the scene, I believe; I haven't checked every last one individually, but the youngest man in the room at the time (at least 20 years younger than almost everybody else), Ron Dias, passed away in 2013. Also included, as a laid-in (unattached) center-spread insert, printed on heavy stock but folded vertically down the middle, is a color group photo of 23 individuals, 21 of whom are among the group of honorees; facsimiles of their signatures are printed on the photo, but not matched up with their images in any way, and since you can't read their name-tags in the photo, you're on your own as far as connecting the dots is concerned. (The two other people in the photo are women -- one of whom is almost completely hidden -- who are either (a) wives or (b) unannounced honorees.) The group photo, unfolded, measures 10-1/2" x 8-1/2".
