        Fine Papers at the Oxford University Press

      Whittington Press, Risbury, Herefordshire 1999 - 39x27cm, 85pp (plus unpaginated leaves with tipped-in paper specimens). With forty specimens of different papers tipped-in to black paper leaves, two further small tipped-in leaves, and one photographic plate. Copy xxvii of lxv (300), half-bound in light turquoise leather over light green paper-covered boards with a blind-embossed stamp to the front board, silver title to the spine, with a separate slightly larger portfolio containing 25 whole sheets of the papers, quarter-bound in green buckram over dark green paper-covered boards, all in a green buckram-covered solander box (with filler inserts to accommodate the book) with a turquoise leather spine panel bearing a silver title. One of Whittington's most monumental productions - a scholarly survey by John Bidwell (Curator of Graphic Arts at Princeton University) of British and Continental handmade and mouldmade papers used by the Oxford University Press, accompanied by a generous provision of actual samples in both the book and (in this special edition) as complete sheets in the separate portfolio. The book's inspiration was the acquisition by the Whittington Press of about 20,000 sheets of fine vintage paper from the Oxford University Press in 1986, as letterpress printing was being phased out (the OUP subsequently closed its printing operations altogether in 1996). Since then, Whittington has used its OUP stock, where sufficient, in several fine books. However, this book is the only opportunity to date for the fine printing enthusiast to examine and handle such a broad range of papers in one place, including the scarcer items - and in such a generous sample size. The scarce original prospectus, which itself has a tipped-in sample, is included with the book, together with a card from Rose Randle apologising for having to fold it. Fine, with a Fine portfolio, in a Very Good (light wear and small bumps to the cloth on the edges and corners) solander box, and a Very Good (fold across the centreline) Prospectus. This is an exceptionally large and heavy book (6kg) and standard shipping rates do not apply - please contact us to discuss shipping options including the possibility of personal collection/delivery in the UK.

They are melodramatic gothic-style cliffhangers, darkly lighthearted books with a contemporary sardonic wit… The inventive use of irony and language, including defining big words… shows that "kids have a nose for literature that is often underestimated" (New York Times).

        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.
