A beautiful First US Edition/First Printing in As New/As New condition, SIGNED and DATED by AUTHOR Gabriel García Márquez on title page; This non-fiction account of the orchestrated kidnappings of ten Colombian journalists by the Medellin drug cartel in 1990 reads more like the dreamy fiction of Nobel Prize winning author Gabriel García Márquez than any non-fiction. Márquez began his book as the story of only one of the kidnapped journalists but early on recognized the need to expand his work to include all the others. Behind the demands of powerful cartel leader Pablo Escobar was protection from extradition to the US for drug trafficking .

        The Patisserie of Pierre Herme [Gebundene Ausgabe] von Pierre Herme - La Patisserie de Pierre Herme - La Pâtisserie de Pierre Herme

      Montagud Editores , 1997. 1997. Hardcover. Good. 27,9 x 25,1 x 2,8 cm. The author is one of the most prestigious pastry chefs on the planet. As head pastry chef of the famous Parisian establishment Fauchon and currently with the prestigious Ladurée, his proposals of new trends in flavors and textures have become a reference point for French and global pâtisserie. This book is an exceptional publication where the inspiration of Pierre Hermé is aimed directly at his colleagues. His technical knowledge, recipes, original processes, broad reaching advice, surprising ideas and personal tricks come together in order to produce a breadth of patisserie of incomparable quality. Mixing chocolate with cumin, or combining fruits with lavender or rose petals, are just a couple examples of his search for new flavors. The book contains 250 of his best pastry formulas, a spectrum of cakes, breads, tarts and sweets, with magnificent photographs and color diagrams of the assembly of each creation. Published in ENGLISH The goodIf you want to make cakes just like they have at Dalloyau and Fauchon, buy this book. Divided intofruit cakes, chocolate cakes, tarts, and petit fours. It tells you EVERYTHING there is to know. The pictures are stunningly beautiful, more so than ANY dessert book I have ever gotten, and I have about 12 or so. The desserts are very original - Pierre uses stuff like saffron and violet, and rose, and all sorts of flowers in his mousses for example. Cool combinationsChocolate mousse/lemon cream chocolate cakes, genoise/raspberry/orange mousse cakes for example. I am not kiddingif you have this book you will know every single decorating technique, every single way of putting together stuff just as they do in the french bakeries. It lists just about every kind of mousse, every cake you could want, which ways to decorate them, and most importantly how to put it together. This is my favorite dessert book. The badYou have to know what you are doing already. The explanations are sparse. For instance, the explanations for pastry cream goes like (this is not real but an example) boil milk + vanilla. Add in whisked yolks/cornstarch. Put back on stove at 120C for a few minutes. Cool to 140 F, then put in butter. So the explanations are very sparse. All recipes are made for 2-4 cakes so you have to scale down. Everything is metric, everything is by weights (so you have to know 1 yolk = 20 g, 1 white = 30 g for instance). Gelatin is used in sheets in the book, so don't forget to put in about 1 T water for every 1/2 t of powder you use (if you're american and use gelatin powder) It helps to have "desserts by pierre herme" by Pierre and Dorie greenspan to "convert" back and forth units, since some cakes are in both books. Sometimes you may want to substituteie regular genoise for Pierre's genoise, regular puff pastry for Pierre's inverted puff pastry. In these cases it helps to know what you are doing first. OverallThe best book period, in my opinion. Definitely worth the extra cost - it is worth 3 regular books. You have to know what you are doing first though, not for beginners. Other recommended books in the same French cake style"desserts by pierre herme" by Herme and greenspan, and "art of the cake" by bugat and somebody else I forget. Both are great books (and a lot easier), though not as great as this one. The author is one of the most prestigious pastry chefs on the planet.

Seine Kompositionen eröffnen dem Genießer neue Genusserlebnisse – ein zartes Knacken, wenn die Schokolade bricht, ein cremiges Schmelzen der Mousse auf der Zunge, ein fruchtiger Nachklang des Obstes und den Nachhall der unvergleichlichen Lust. Kuchen, Torten, Tartes, Feingebäck, Petits Fours – die feinen Gebäcke von Pierre Hermé passen kaum in diese klassischen Kategorien. Schokoladenträume, Fruchtfülle, kleine Verführung – so möchte man die über 80 Kreationen bezeichnen. Pierre Hermé gibt sein Wissen und seine Kreationen weiter. In seinem Buch erfährt der Konditor und Patissier die Rezepturen, nach denen Pierre Hermé arbeitet. Die Zubereitunsarten mit allen Tripps und Tricks sowie Anregungen zu Dekoration und Präsentation. Die Grundrezepturen sowie schwierige Arbeitsschritte sind ausführlich erläutert und teilweise in Schritt-für-Schritt-Abbildungen dargestellt. Die großformatigen Fotos machen Lust sofort das eine oder andere auszuprobieren.

Mit 20 Jahren bereits Chef-Patissier, war er bald international bekannt und gründete 1996 Pierre Hermé Paris.

        All Fall Down (original cover art)

      1997 - 1997: Original cover painting by Mark Salwowski for the true MacMillan hardcover first edition of Jenny Oldfield's "All Fall Down". 72 x 48 cms, ink on illustration board. Fine, pristine. The captivating cover of Oldfield's World War I romance novel, featuring an extraordinarily fetching young lady- the heroine, I believe - and authentic period environs. See scans (note that the scan of the book itself is provided for reference. The book is not part of this item). Another wow by Salwowski. Big and striking, a sophisticated eye-catcher hanging on the wall - it is, in fact, hanging on mine right now. Now framed in walnut (see scan) by Bach Studio in Syracuse. With a copy of Salwowski's signed transmittal letter. LART [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Crossfire Hurricane

      UK, Genesis Publications. 1997, 1997. LIMITED EDITION, SIGNED by Photographer Bob Gruen. Folio, bound in a superb three-colour silk-screened fabric cover, featuring Mick Jagger on the front board and Keith Richards on the back, with a four-colour screen printed slip case featuring the band. Crossfire Hurricane is a remarkable collection of photographs capturing twenty-five years of The Rolling Stones in America and contains over 350 shots, many in full colour and some previously unpublished. Famous rock photographer Bob Gruen has worked with many successful musicians, but has remained ever faithful to the group that first captured his heart. From 1972 he has photographed The Stones, documenting the band's touring career and also their solo appearances, both official and impromptu, and alongside other rock'n'roll legends such as John Lennon, Bob Dylan and Chuck Berry. The result is a breathtaking look at their impact on America as one of the most exciting live bands in the history of rock'n'roll.

        Tihkal: The Continuation Signed Limited Edition

      Transform Press 1997 - Note: This sale if for a copy of Tihkal only, not the set. Although we do have a copy of Pihkal available. New in new slipcase. Limited Edition Hardcover, Blue Cloth Over Boards in Matching Slipcase, 1 of 300, Signed by both authors on 1/2 title page, Brand New! Support Radical Independent Pacific Northwest Booksellers! TiHKAL is a 1997 book written by Alexander Shulgin and Ann Shulgin about a family of psychoactive drugs known as tryptamines. A sequel to PiHKAL (Phenethylamines i Have Known And Loved), the full title of the book is Tryptamines i Have Known And Loved: Continuation. TiHKAL, much like its predecessor PiHKAL, is divided into two parts. first part, which all rights are reserved for, is a fictionalized autobiography, continuing where PiHKAL left off, but it then continues into a collection of essays. These essays range from psychotherapy and the Jungian mind to the prevalence of DMT in nature, ayahuasca and the War on Drugs. second part of TiHKAL, which may be distributed for non-commercial reproduction with several conditions (see external links below), is a detailed synthesis manual for 55 psychedelic compounds (many discovered by Alexander Shulgin), with dosages, chemical structure and qualitative comments. Like PiHKAL, the Shulgins were motivated to release the synthesis information as a way to protect the public's access to information about psychedelic compounds, a goal Alexander Shulgin has noted many times. [1] Following a raid of his laboratory in 1994 by the United States DEA, [2] Richard Meyer, spokesman for DEA's San Francisco Field Division, stated that "It is our opinion that those books [referring to the previous work, PiHKAL] are pretty much cookbooks on how to make illegal drugs. Agents tell me that in clandestine labs that they have raided, they have found copies of those books. " This attitude emphasized Shulgin's need to release the information to ensure its preservation, and led to the release of TiHKAL and his other publications. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        VERY SPECIAL*** - Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - Bloomsbury First Edition/ 9th Impression Hardback - really scarce edition with - 1 WAND appearing TWICE ERROR on Harry's shopping list for Diagon Alley

      Bloomsbury 1997 - Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - Bloomsbury First Edition/ 9th Impression Hardback - very rare example with the rarest First Edition text errors. Wow - what a fantastic find!!! On the Hogwart's School List, page 53 "1 Wand" is repeated again at the bottom of the List. This error was on the 1st & 2nd impressions, some of the 8th impressions and a very small amount of the 9th impressions also, where the original plates were used and printed in error - in total there are less than 1000 copies estimated with this error across the 1st, 2nd, 8th & 9th impressions. Also on page 8, at the end of the top line, the words high chair are joined by mistake and read "highchair". This was corrected very early on in the Bloomsbury Children's hardbacks just as the "Wand" error had been. This copy is the original trade hardback, first published by Bloomsbury, London 1997. It is a very early First Edition hardback published by Bloomsbury London, it is not a book club, Ted Smart or large print edition. The text at the bottom of the front cover reads - Winner of the 1997 Smarties Gold Award. The illustration on the rear cover and spine is of the original Young Wizard as on the first printing. The text copyright is to Joanne Rowling, not J K Rowling as it was corrected to on later editions. The illustrated boards are in mint condition. The unclipped dust jacket is also in mint condition without any creases and looks like new.a miracle for this well read children's book. It also is protected with a Mylar cover to make sure it stays in such great condition. The binding is superb, and internally the book is unmarked and has not been read. The number line is 10 9. A very rare example - in exceptionally good condition. A Grade 'A' collector's copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        THE DRAGON-BOOK OF ESSEX. Grimorium Synomosia Dracotaos. An Enchiridion of the Crooked Path, Being a Grammar of Quintessential Sorcery, Containing the Sacred Rites and Formulae Undertaken in the Mysteries of the Great Dragon. Transmitted through the Circle of Four Watchers, Seen and Unseen, and Here Set Forth By the Hand of Alogos Dhul' Qarnen Khidir, Andrew D. Chumbley. DELUXE EDITION, LIMITED TO 196 HAND-NUMBERED COPIES, BOUND IN FULL BLACK GOATSKIN, SLIPCASED

      No Place: Xoanon, 2014. First Edition, First Printing. Leather Bound. Fine in Slipcase. First Edition. Large Thick Quarto, original full black morocco stamped in gold on spine and front panel, marbled endpapers, silk ribbon bookmarker. Slipcased. 834 pp., single volume. Containing numerous illustrations and sigillae by the author throughout. Issued in an edition limited to 196 hand-numbered copies. A fine copy without dust jacket as issued. Note: This is a very large, heavy, oversized volume; additional postage will be required from Overseas buyers. ¶ Following the Azoëtia, The Dragon Book of Essex represents the second work of Chumbley’s three-book magical opus the Trimagisterion. From this period of work, Chumbley formulated ‘Crooked Path Sorcery’ as a trans-historical magical model, operant in a number of systems of sorcery, most notably in the witchcraft of his native Essex. The Crooked Path may be seen to mirror the zoötype of the Serpent, wending between such magical antipodes as blessing and cursing, honour and treachery, Tabu and its breaking. Its quintessential nature is transgressive, and through this apostasy, the illuminant fire of the Serpent descends. This substantial work expounds the sorcerous ethos and praxes of the Crooked Path ritual system. Its contents include a cycle of ten extensive Mystery-rites, each accompanied by adjunctive solitary rituals and detailed commentaries. Additional texts relate the intricacies of Sabbatic ritualization, as well as an extensive body of stellar lore and ritual. The Sorcerous Formulae of Number and Sign are also communicated, together with detailed exegeses of the Quadriga, the specific covine-type of the Crooked Path. A detailed section on the Magical Weapons of the Draconian Sorcerer complements the text. This work is intended as an entire resumé of the ancestral and ophidian components of Traditional Craft Sorcery and Sabbatic Gnosis. The Dragon Book of Essex originally comprised a portion of the rites and practices of an inner conclave of the Cultus Sabbati known as The Column of the Crooked Path. Central to the Draconian ritual cycle is the enfleshment of the primordial Serpent of Eld both within the body of the practitioner as the First Sorcerer Azha-Cain, and within the earth of the World-Field as the Dragon Azhdeha. This dual-natured work is realised through rites of bodily sacrifice unto the Serpent, and subsequently through a year-long cycle of practices. These rites, being solar, lunar, and stellar in nature, transfix the celestial attributes of the Dragon’s Body within the telluric ritual arena and the sensorium of the practitioner. A private initiatic edition of ten copies, each having three volumes, was published in 1997. Subsequently, other sections of the book were diffused through the Cultus’ outer sodality, ‘The Companie of the Serpent Cross’ for private study and solitary work. This first public release of the Dragon-Book incorporates refinements to the text made by the author in 1998, 2000, 2001, and 2003, as well as corrections and marginalia from his own personal working copy and never-before-seen illustrations.
