        Dyt is den aflaet en[de] ghenaden van allen stacien binnen ende buten der heiligher stadt van Romen dat ganse jaer doer sijn te verdienen. [Deventer, Jacobus de Breda, ca. 1516]. Small 1mo broadside (42.5 x 29.5 cm). With the woodcut Medici coat of arms of Pope Leo X (47 x 40 mm), paragraph marks (2 sizes) and a Maltese cross (1 size) to mark days when indulgences were available for all sins and for the release of the soul from purgatory respectively. Set in two columns in a rotunda gothic type, with the first line of the title in a larger rotunda and the rest of the title, other headings and note at the foot in a textura gothic type. Attached with 2 paper hinges to a modern paperboard.

      - N.R. Miedema, Rompilgerfürer in Spätmittelalter und Früher Neuzeit: die "Indulgentiae ecclesiarium urbis Romae" (deutsch/niederländisch) (2003), n4 (pp. 66-67) & section 3.3 (Die "Stationes cum indulgentiis", pp. 203-222): the present copy; Nijhoff & Kronenberg 4179 (abbreviated in the addenda 018): the present copy. The only recorded copy of the only surviving Dutch-language broadside published before ca. 1590 concerning indulgences: a calendar indicating the days throughout the year when indulgences of various kinds could be "earned", presumably by making payments to the Church, either at the seven "station churches" in Rome or at churches elsewhere. The calendar begins on Ash Wednesday (the first day of Lent), which, during Leo X's reign (1513-1521), fell in the period 12 February to 7 March, and ends with the third Sunday in Advent, which would fall in the period 11 to 17 December. The two columns have 96 entries, most for a specific day but some for periods. The last entry (following the third Sunday of Advent) notes that there are many more indulgences available, too numerous to mention, confirmed by many Popes, including Sylvester, Gregory, Pelagius and Paschal. Many of the entries are associated with the veneration of a saint at a station (presumably on the saint's feast day) and they name the day of the week, the saint to whom the station was devoted, and the length of time for which the sins would be absolved (ranging from 3000 to 28,000 years!). A three-line note running across the foot of the broadside states that any Christians can earn these indulgences at any time in their lives after making devotions in the church where they pray, and that Pope Leo X has granted privileges and letters of indulgence for the benefit of the rebuilding of Saint Peter's Basilica in Rome. The present calendar was probably published ca. 1516 and Martin Luther protested against Leo X's sale of indulgences for this rebuilding, one of the most important points in his 95 theses, published in 1517, which symbolized the beginning of the Protestant Reformation.No printed letter of indulgence in Dutch is known to survive, and the present printed broadside in Dutch concerning indulgences is the only one known to survive from before ca. 1590. A similar broadside in German probably appeared shortly after the present Dutch one. Indulgences, and broadsides concerning them, were ephemera that inevitably survived only in very small numbers, and such items in the Dutch language probably circulated in lower levels of society than Latin ones, reducing their chances of survival still further. The official status of the Protestant Church in the Dutch Republic from the late 16th-century, moreover, discouraged people from keeping such tokens of Catholicism. Though the Dutch Republic was the most tolerant nation of its day, where many Catholics practiced their religion without serious interference, the Dutch Calvinist factions continued campaigns against Catholics and occasionally got the upper hand.Formerly folded horizontally and vertically, with a small tear between the two columns where the folds cross and a few minor spots, but otherwise in very good condition and wholly untrimmed. A unique document providing valuable information about the Dutch use of indulgences on the eve of the Protestant Reformation.

        Seven Pillars of Wisdom: a triumph, the complete 1922 'Oxford' text, limited one-volume edition, one of 180 issued thus in quarter Nigerian goatskin, an out-of-series "Press Copy" acquired directly from the publisher

      Salisbury, England: Castle Hill Press, 2003. Quarter goatskin. This is the finely bound, first one-volume limited edition of the full 1922 'Oxford' text from Castle Hill Press, the premier editors and fine press publishers of material by and about T.E. Lawrence, founded by Lawrence's official biographer, Jeremy Wilson (1944-2017).  Of 1,225 total copies, the publisher issued just 180 thus, in quarter Nigerian goatskin, bound by The Fine Bindery and featuring raised spine bands, blind rule compartments and transitions, cloth sides, top edge gilt, ribbon place marker, brown endpapers with adjacent illustrated maps, and head and tail bands and issued in a rigid, cloth slipcase. This out-of-series copy is hand-marked "Press Copy" by the publisher on the title page verso limitation.  We acquired this copy in flawless, as-new condition directly from Jeremy Wilson. This beautiful first one-volume edition not only features text that was “re-checked against copies of the two source documents” leading to “a number of small improvements” but also a scholarly index by Hazel K. Bell (which won the Weatley Medal, Britain's major indexing award), as well as 16 pages of black-and-white photographs taken by Lawrence and others during the Arab Revolt. Seven Pillars of Wisdom is the story of T.E. Lawrence's (1888-1935) remarkable odyssey as instigator, organizer, hero, and tragic figure of the Arab revolt against the Ottoman Empire during the First World War, which he began as an eccentric junior intelligence officer and ended as "Lawrence of Arabia."  This time defined Lawrence with indelible experience and celebrity, which he would spend the rest of his famously short life struggling to reconcile and reject, to recount and repress.  Lawrence famously resisted publication of his masterwork for the general public during his lifetime. The saga is remarkable. He nearly completed a massive first draft in 1919, only to famously lose it when his briefcase was mislaid at a train station. This first draft was never recovered. At a fever pitch, Lawrence wrote a new 400,000 word draft in 1920. This punishing burst of writing was followed by an equally brutal process of editing by Lawrence. In 1922, a 335,000 word version was carefully circulated to select friends and literary critics - the famous "Oxford Text". George Bernard Shaw called it "a masterpiece". Nonetheless, Lawrence was unready to see it distributed to the public. Finally, in 1926, a further edited 250,000 word "Subscribers' Edition" was produced by Lawrence - but fewer than 200 copies were made, each lavishly and uniquely bound. The process cost Lawrence far more than he made in subscriptions. To recover the loss, Lawrence finally authorized an edition for the general public - but one even further abridged and entitled "Revolt in the Desert". It was only in the summer of 1935, in the weeks following Lawrence's death, that the text of the Subscribers' Edition was finally published for circulation to the general public. However, the fuller "Oxford Text" - a third longer than the shortened text which became so famous - would not be republished until 1997.  Castle Hill took this text from Lawrence's original manuscript in the Bodleian Library and Lawrence's annotated proof copy of the 1922 Oxford Times printing.  Castle Hill Press first published a three-volume limited edition of 752 sets of the Oxford Text, followed by this one-volume limited edition in 2003.  Bibliographic reference: see O'Brien A034a.

        Efsun Çiçegi (Enchanting Beauty Flowers).

      (Istanbul): Ebristan Yayinlari, 2003. Original marbled paper by the premier marbling artist in Turkey, Hikmet Barutçugil. Signed and dated by the artist. Ebru, or marbling, is one of the oldest arts in Turkey. In addition to being used in book binding and design, it was often used as a background for calligraphy. In this way, marbling was elevated to a high art. Ever since its fifteenth-century beginnings, artists in Turkey (and around the world) have experimented with marbling in order to create increasingly complex designs, which are works of art in their own right. Barutcugil has developed his own technique for creating flowers within his marbled patterns, inspired by his wife, Füsun Hanim. In this lovely example, four tulips in lavender and violet bloom against a marbled background in shades of green, pink, blue, and violet. The marbling transitions from delicate washes of green to bolder, defined lines which evoke mountains and sky. Barutcgil's limitless creativity and passion for this traditional art is clear in his work. The paper has been mounted onto a stiff cardboard backing. Measures 18 by 9 inches. A very fine example of Turkish marbling, which is offered with "Efsun Cicergi," Barutcugil's fully illustrated text on Efsun Flowers.

      London: Bloomsbury, 2003. First edition of the fifth novel in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter Series. Octavo, original illustrated boards. Signed by J.K. Rowling on the half title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of wear. Jacket illustration by Jason Cockcroft. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, more than any of the four previous novels in the series, is a coming-of-age story. Harry faces the thorny transition into adulthood, when adult heroes are revealed to be fallible, and matters that seemed black-and-white suddenly come out in shades of gray. Gone is the wide-eyed innocent, the whiz kid of Sorcerer's Stone. Here we have an adolescent who's sometimes sullen, often confused, and always self-questioning. Confronting death again, as well as a startling prophecy, Harry ends his year at Hogwarts exhausted and pensive. "The Order of the Phoenix starts slow, gathers speed and then skateboards, with somersaults, to its furious conclusion....As Harry gets older, Rowling gets better." (John Leonard, The New York Times). It was made into the 2007 film directed by David Yates, starring Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter, alongside Rupert Grint and Emma Watson as Harry's best friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.

        Slave-catching in the Indian Ocean. A record of naval experiences.London, Longmans, Green & Co. (colophon: printed by Spottiswoode & Co.), 1873. 8vo. With 8 steel-engraved plates, including the frontispiece (5 signed by "Pearson"), a folding map of the Indian Ocean, Red Sea and the Gulf, lithographed by Edward Weller and hand-coloured in outline, and one line of music notes in text. Contemporary half calf, gold-tooled spine (Henry Young & Sons, Liverpool).

      Garrick, "Indian Ocean, post-exploration", in: Speake, Literature of travel and exploration (2003), pp. 608-610; Hogg, African slave trade 3302. First edition of a very detailed and well-illustrated account of a British naval campaign to suppress the East African slave trade in the years 1868 to 1870, published only eight years after the end of the United States' Civil War and the abolition of slavery there. Slavery was not outlawed in the Ottoman Empire (which at the time of publication included Egypt and what is now Iraq) until 1882 and in Iran and most of the Gulf States not until the 20th century. The book was written by Captain Philip Howard Colomb (1831-1899), Commander of the HMS Dryad from 1868 to 1870, who lead the campaign. He operated primarily in and around the Gulf, Oman and Zanzibar, and captured seven slave ships during those two years. The illustrations show the Dryad and some of the slave ships, individual and group portraits of slaves encountered during the campaign and views of ports where slave trading occurred.With bookplate and some occasional underscoring in pencil. The folding map foxed, otherwise a very good copy. Binding only slightly rubbed along the extremities. An essential primary source for any study of the slave trade, especially in the Gulf region.

        The Da Vinci Code

      New York: Doubleday, 2003. Near Fine in hardcover in Near Fine dustjacket. 25 by 17 cm. 454 pages. True first printing of the first edition. Signed by author on title page with his name only - no name of former owner. This book contains both of the hallmarks of a true first printing of the first edition. One is the statement of "First Edition" on the copyright page with the full print line of "10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1". The second is found on the inside of the front flap of the dustjacket. In the center is printed the original price in the middle of the flap : "U.S. $24.95/Canada $37.95". The book also contains the misspelling of "skitoma" on page 243.The book is a full 9 1/2 inches tall (not to be confused with the book club edition which measures 8 1/2 inches tall). The lettering on the dustjacket is raised. The only shortcoming of this book is a very slight lean to the spine (so slight, we would not even normally mention it for other books). There is very light rubbing along the edges of the dustjacket from normal storage. An excellent copy of this very hard to find signed true edition. Additional photographs are available upon request. Bright, clean.. Signed by Author. First Edition.

        The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. With an Introduction by Fabian Peake.

      2003 - Small folio, original cloth lettered in gilt on spine and upper board. Printed in red and black, with 8 illustrations by Mervyn Peake, printed the same size as the originals. A mint copy. Limited edition of 190 numbered copies, this one of 50 Special copies consisting of the book with a portfolio of prints housed in a solander box. "Following the restorartion and publishing of Meryn Peake's illustrations to Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Libanus Press, Peake's family approached the Press with the suggestion that we should produce a companion volume of The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. After the first publications of his illustrations, Peake had hope to sell the drawings: he reworked them and colour-washed the papers. None were sold and one was lost. The drawings have been scanned and restored by the Press using the techniques developed with the Alice drawings. The background tints of the original vary. The drawings are printed letterpress to crisply replicate them at the size of the original artwork on a uniform tint to reveal the full effect Peake had in mind with his final reworkings." (Prospectus) "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner proliferates in images and offers enormous potential for an illustrator. Mervyn Peake began illustrating books by writers other than hiomself in the early 1940s and the 'Mariner' illustrations are part of a rich history in which his best work was realised. He knew the poem well and would often quote passages in the house. He made a thorough search, choosing scenes and images with which to emboss his interpretation on the poem. When reading the poem, one is struck by images that spring up like flashing beacons and demand to be illustrated. The illustrations have an unreal, rather theatrical quality. as has the poem, and leave us bursting with unanswerable questions." (Fabian Peake from his Introduction). " [Attributes: Hard Cover]
