        The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon

      (NY): Scribner. (1999). A novel in which a lost girl channels the strengths (at the time) of Boston Red Sox relief pitcher Tom Gordon for comfort. Signed by King. With the bookplate of horror writer Stanley Wiater on the front pastedown; fine in a fine dust jacket. One of King's scarcest trade editions to find signed, presumably because of the difficult logistics of handling a Stephen King book signing in recent years, due to his extreme popularity. This copy was a gift to attendees at the dinner celebrating King's 25th anniversary as a published writer, which Wiater attended with his wife. A limited edition of this title was published several years later, and a pop-up edition of it was done as well. Signed copies of the trade first edition are exceedingly scarce. . First Edition. Hardcover.

        The New Lieutenant's Rap

      (n.p.): Philtrum Press. 1999. A limited edition created by King for a party to mark the 25th anniversary of his career as a published novelist and freelance writer, and given out to the attendees of the party. One of "no more than 500" numbered copies signed by the author, and probably a lot scarcer than that: there were reportedly 100 couples at the party who received copies of the book, and it turns up so infrequently on the secondary market that we can only conclude that, first, the attendees have generally held onto (or possibly lost) their copies and, second, that other copies of it have not been distributed (if, indeed, they have even been created). A "stopper" for many King collections. The story later appeared in altered form in Hearts from Atlantis. Here the pages reproduce King's handwriting and are bound in saddle-stitched wrappers with a peace sign on the cover. With the stamp of horror writer Stanley Wiater inside the front cover and on the last blank. Fine in original envelope. Together with a peace sign on chain, given out as a party favor. Fine in gift box with bow laid in. Also together with an invitation to the party; two place cards from the event; and two completed and marked copies of the official authorized Stephen King trivia quiz, as written by Wiater for the event. Four pages, 25 questions (these two copies receiving scores of 23 and 24 correct). . First Edition. Softcover.

        POESIS 2.0. CD-ROM.

      ZANICHELLI 1999 Il cd-rom "Poesis 2" comprende un archivio di circa 350000 versi, cui si accede mediante un software originale di interrogazione; suo scopo è agevolare le ricerche lessicali nell'ambito dei testi della poesia latina - arcaica, classica, tardoantica e cristiana - e della loro secolare ricezione presso le letterature dell'Occidente; ogni occasionale inchiesta del lettore curioso di fronte a una citazione immersa nella sua memoria, come la sistematica indagine diacronica o la raffinata analisi formale dello specialista, potrà ottenere da questo strumento un ausilio indispensabile e una promozione talora imprevedibile nei loro sviluppi. In questa nuova versione per Windows, oltre agli attesi miglioramenti della grafica, è stata effettuata una profonda revisione tecnica del sistema, la cui portata risulterà evidente sin da una prima prova di interrogazione. Gli archivi elettronici sono stati a loro volta integrati da ampie acquisizioni, soprattutto di poesia non dattilica di epoca arcaica e repubblicana (in massima parte costituita dalle commedie di Plauto e Terenzio e dai frammenti degli altri autori scenici) oltre che da numerosi incrementi ai testi di età più tarda; attraverso "Poesis 2" si viene ora ammessi alla lettura cursoria e alla ricerca verbale entro una banca dati contenente l'intera produzione in versi della letteratura latina antica, dalle reliquie dei carmina Saliaria fino a Venanzio Fortunato, Isidoro di Siviglia, Eugenio di Toledo. Alla confezione è allegata la ristampa anastatica de "Il lessico classico. Lessico ragionato dell'antichità classica" di Federico Lubker dall'edizione originale del 1898. volume in Italiano EAN: 9788808094216

      New York: Scholastic Press, 1999 First American edition, first printing. Signed by the author in black ink on the title page. A near fine copy, with light wear to the spine ends, a hint of wear to the corners, with a former owner's signature on the front flyleaf, otherwise fresh pages; in the original unclipped dust jacket designed by Mary Grandpré, with some very minor wear to the edges, bookseller's sticker to front flap, very small stain on the verso without affecting the otherwise bright and unfaded jacket panels. A clean and attractive copy of the third book in the Harry Potter series. A somewhat pivotal novel in the series, The Prisoner of Azkaban received high critical acclaim upon its release, but was published before the series reached the level of popularity and cult following that it has today. In his third year at Hogwarts, Harry and his friends search for the villainous outlaw Sirius Black. Unlike the first two novels, the book does not end with a cut-and-dry triumph over evil, but rather begins to pose the question of how media portals and popular perception affects whether someone is considered good or bad- a notion that will reoccur and becoming increasingly central to the storyline as the series progresses.. Signed by Author. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included. Illus. by Grandpré, Mary.

        Tramp Art: A Folk Art Phenomenon

      Stewart Tabori & Chang. Paperback. 1556709056 Dust jacket condition: VG. Text free of underlining, writing and highlighting. Tramp art holds a unique place in the canon of American folk art. Primitive yet astoundingly intricate in their construction, these decorative objects are made through a process of layering elaborately notched pieces of wood in order to create ornate and multi-dimensional surfaces. It is most commonly found as boxes, picture frames, and other table-top items, but encompasses full-sized furniture pieces as well. Tramp art was most prevalent during the years of the Great Depression. All of the wood used in its construction is scrap and discard; a craft of itinerant carvers, most of it was made from the wooden cigar boxes of the era. Most fascinating is the fact that there are no written instructions for the construction or Grafting of a piece of tramp art and it doesn't' t appear that there ever were. This is a technique apparently passed on through word of mouth, practical demonstration, and imitation. Helaine Fendelman and Jonathan Taylor have brought together an astounding array of pieces many of them newly discovered, others rare and unique, all of them significant. For the serious collector or fascinated browser, this is the seminal guide to tramp art. 159 pages. We ship our books in CorgiPack mailers except for unusually large books and multiple books orders.
