        Sedighe onderwijsen der creaturen. In rhijm ghestelt. [engraved title-page:] Apologi creaturaru[m].Antwerp, Jacob Mesens, 1649. Oblong 8vo (11.5 x 16.5 cm). With 55 etched illustrations on integral leaves (including the title print of Hermes/Mercury releasing Persephone, with motto "utilia prudenti imprudenti futilia"). Contemporary vellum.

      - Hodnett, Marcus Gheeraerts, p. 69; Landwehr, Emblem and fable books 594 (5 copies); Praz, p. 430; STCN (3 copies); cf. Jeudwine 415 (1st ed.); for Henry White: "Rev. Henry White of Lichfield", in: The book collector XLIII (1994), no. 2. Rare first and only Dutch edition (or adaptation), in verse, of an emblem book in Latin verse by Johannes Moerman (1556-1621). Each emblematic illustration faces an eight-line Dutch verse with a one-line Latin title, intended for moral education. The etchings include views of the earth and the heavens, landscapes, people engaged in various activities, including a ploughing scene that makes one think of Bruegel a quarter century later, some where buildings play a major role, but above all animals, including many fantastic beasts: siren, hydra, centaur, satyr, griffin, dragon, unicorn and others. But for the mid-17th-century reader, the rhinoceros may have seemed as fantastic as any of the others. Of the 55 engravings, 51 are printed from the original plates of the 1584 edition in its first issue, which are attributed to the Bruges artist and etcher Marcus Gheeraerts the elder. Although his name does not appear in either the Latin or the Dutch edition, the contemporary manuscript spine title of the present copy reads, "Emblem|Marcus|Gerarts". Jeudwine calls these "the most distinguished illustrations of the period in the Netherlands". The other four engravings are printed from the new plates attributed to Pieter van der Borcht the elder (ca. 1530-1608). With a contemporary owner's monogram MB and owner's inscription by the reverend Henry White (1761-1836), an early collector of emblem books. With a red ink stain in plate 46 and a small brown stain in plate 55, but otherwise in good condition, with only a few faint marginal water stains. The binding very good.

Band, "Die Herrschaft Österreich", ist den ersten 130 Jahren der Habsburger-Dynastie in Österreich gewidmet, der 5. Band, "Das Jahrhundert der Mitte", schreibt die Geschichte bis Kaiser Karl V. fort. Die Bände 6 und 7, "Ständefreiheit und Fürstenmacht", befassen sich mit dem konfessionellen Zeitalter zwischen dem Thesenanschlag Martin Luthers über den Dreißigjährigen Krieg bis zum Ausgang des 17. Jahrhunderts. Der 8. Band, "Glanz und Untergang der höfischen Welt", setzt die Darstellung bis zum Wiener Kongress von 1814/15 fort. Das 19. Jahrhundert bis zum Ausbruch des Ersten Weltkriegs ist Gegenstand des 9. Bandes, "Eine Chance für Mitteleuropa", während der 10. Band, "Der lange Schatten des Staates", die Gesellschaftsgeschichte des 20. Jahrhunderts beschreibt. Abgeschlossen werden die elf Bände mit "Ökonomie und Politik", einem eigenen Buch zur österreichischen Wirtschaftsgeschichte.

        Open Secrets

      New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf(1994). First Edition / First Printing. Fine in Fine Dust Jacket. 295 pages. Rare Alice Munro collectible set. A fine copy of "Open Secrets" with a fine copy of "Carried Away" Limited Edition, both signed by Alice Munro. The author's eighth collection of short stories. The first appearance of the title in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. Presents Alice Munro's "Open Secrets". Her eighth collection of short stories. "Munro is in a class of her own. No other writer working today is able to invest the humble story with more power, grace, or breadth" (Los Angeles Times). "Our Chekhov" (Cynthia Ozick). "A stunningly precise writer who is often able to say more in 30 pages than an ordinary novelist is capable of in 300. Munro writes about what are usually called ordinary people, but her intelligence, compassion, and astonishing power of perception enable her to give their lives a remarkable dignity, indeed redemption, since she shows how much of The Extraordinary can fit into that jam-packed emptiness called The Ordinary" (Nobel Prize Citation). "Carried Away" is, of course, the lead story of "Open Secrets". To celebrate the latter's publication, Alice Munro's publisher issued the short story in a Limited Edition that is presented as a lovely, treasurable keepsake. An absolute "must-have" set for Alice Munro collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Alice Munro. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. It comes with a rare copy of "Carried Away" Limited Edition, which is also very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the Front Numbered Page by the author. Throughout her long career, Munro made very few public appearances, and is a reluctant signer at best. As such, most of her books are signed on a bookplate, which are much less desirable than copies signed on either the title page or tipped-in page. This title is a great collection. As far as we know, this is the only such signed set available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, pristine beauties. A rare signed set thus. Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2013. One of the greatest writers of our time. A fine collectible set. (SEE ALSO OTHER ALICE MUNRO TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0679435751.

        Touch Wood

      Seacourt Print Workshop, Bangor, N. Ireland 1994 - This unique work of art, limited to 12 copies of which this is number 3, was executed when Kristiane Semar was artist-in-residence at Seacourt Print Workshop in Bangor, N. Ireland. It is a Calender Book with 12 hand-coloured woodcuts combined with a collection of 12 quotations. The book is hand-bound by the artist with black linen spine and off white paper covered boards. The front cover is illustrated with a black and white woodcut of two faces in profile with the title of the book 'Touch Wood' printed around it; the capital letters of the title are in blue and brown. The endpapers are hand-made. Each hand-coloured woodcut is mounted on stiff card pages and each one is signed and dated by the artist, while opposite each woodcut is the quotation for the month. There is a very slight nick in the paper on the bottom edge of the front board. The front endpaper has a small split near the hinge where the mull has lifted slightly. The rear endpaper also has a small tear near the top of the hinge, also where the mull has lifted - this has been caused by the book being a bit tight in its binding. This is not a serious problem if the book is opened carefully. Otherwise this lovely work is in fine condition. Digital photographs available upon request. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        My Kenya Days.

      London, HarperCollinsPublishing, [1994]. 8vo. Original black cloth lettered in gilt on spine, light-brown endpapers, dustwrapper retaining price; pp. xiv, [2 (full-page map, verso blank)], 224; photographic illustrations after Thesiger, some full- or double-page; dustwrapper very slightly creased at edges, with short tear on lower panel, and slightly faded on part of spine, extremities very lightly bumped, very light marginal marks on pp.188-189, otherwise a very good copy. First edition. Signed on the title 'Wilfred Thesiger'. An autobiographical account of Thesiger's thirty years in Kenya, where he settle in the latter part of his life, which complements Thesiger's books on the earlier years of his life: 'When he first came to Kenya in 1960, Thesiger made a series of long journeys on foot with camels to Lake Turkana, Marsabit and other remote areas, drawn by the lure of what was formerly Kenya's Northern Frontier District, its varied wildlife and distinctive, nomadic tribes. In Tanzania, he climbed Mount Kilimanjaro and traversed the Maasai country with donkeys. Later, as an Honorary Game Warden, he led anti-poaching patrols in Kenya. [...] My Kenya Days offers fresh insights into Thesiger's motivations and enigmatic personality. His descriptions of Kenya's northern tribes are picturesque, vivid and authoritative: Rendille warriors dancing by moonlight; Turkana in pursuit of buffalo; and a closely observed account of Samburu moran during their initiation ceremonies' (dustwrapper blurb).
