        Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

      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]

        Maqamat Al-Hariri Illustrated By Y. Al-Wasiti. 13th Century Arabic manuscript (TWO VOLUMES).

      Touch Art, London 2003 - Volume I: Introduction 42 pp.; of English, French & German text + XXII pp.; of Arabic text, biblio./ Volume II: authentic facsimile reproduction of the original Arabic manuscript which is housed at the Bibliotheque Nationale (Paris), 334 pp.; (380 x 270 mm), 110 colour miniatures illustrations by Yahya Al-Wasiti. Set in mint condition. New. LIMITED edition to 2000 numbered copies. A MONUMENTAL WORK, and a landmark in Arabic paintings and miniatures. It combines the primary excellence of being a grand collection of literature admired during a long and important period of Arab history, and fascinating collection of miniatures. " Among the treasures of the rich collection of manuscripts at the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris is a codex of 168 folios (arabe 5847) with 101 illustrations containing the complete text of what is called al-Maqamat al-Haririyah in a decorated cartouche awkwardly located on the upper part of the first folio. The manuscript is sometimes known as the Schefer Maqamat, because it was given to the Bibliotheque Nationale by the Orientalist scholar Charles Schefer, who probably acquired it somewhere in the Ottoman Empire, where he had spent many years Dozens of manuscripts of Hariri’s Maqamat have been preserved from his own time.Of all the manuscripts with pictures containing Al-Hariri’s great work, (this copy) towers above all others for the quality and variety of its illustrations. It was completed in C. E. 1237 (A. H. 634, in the month Ramadan) and according to its colophon, was copied and illustrated by the same individual, Yahya ibn Mahmud ibn Yahya ibn Abi al-Hasan ibn Kuwwarih al-Wasiti, presumably originating from the city of al-Wasit. .This essay was written at a time of great sadness for me, as presumably civilized human organizations failed to find ways to resolve differences and felt compelled to kill each other instead. By the time this book comes out, the worst of the war will be over, but the emotional depression of men and women of good will is likely to remain for a while. This book which deals, if not with Baghdad itself, certainly with Iraq, can be construed as a homage to the permanent values of mankind and to the power and fascination of art, regardless of when or where it was made".

        Efsun Çiçegi (Enchanting Beauty Flowers)

      Ebristan Yayinlari, (Istanbul) 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. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Though the pulps are mostly forgotten today, more than a thousand different pulp titles were printed, and over 50,000 individual issues appeared. The most popular pulps were published weekly and oftentimes sold over 500,000 copies per issue. Literally thousands of hardcover books reprinted pulp stories and hundreds of movies were based on pulp fiction. --The pulp field died in the early 1950's, with only a few titles lasting to the later years of that decade. Most genre literature, ranging from westerns to mysteries to science fiction, had already made the jump to digests, slick magazines, or paperback. What didn't survive were mid-length works, novelets and short novels, the bread and butter of pulp magazines, stories too long to be considered a short and too short to be published as a novel. And with them disappeared most series stories featuring continued characters. There was no room in the world of paperback originals for the pulp heroes who filled the pages of Argosy, Adventure, Dime Detective, Wild West Weekly and many other fine magazines. They've been lost from sight—until now. --Lost Treasures of the Pulps is a new series of hardcover books collecting some of the great series stories that have never been reprinted from the pulp magazines. This first set of two volumes reprints the entire Peter the Brazen series by George F. Worts, occasionally writing under his own name and also under the pen name, Loring Brent. There were two series of Peter the Brazen stories written. The first appeared in Argosy in 1919-1920, while the second series appeared in the same magazine from 1930-1935. The second series of adventures is considered by many pulp fans as perhaps the greatest action series ever to be published in the pulps. In particular, the three stories detailing Peter's battles with the Chinese mastermind, the Blue Scorpion, are pulp adventures at their finest. Written by George F. Worts, one of the finest adventure writers of the 20th century, these stories are just as exciting and entertaining as they were when first published. --George F. Worts was an extremely popular pulp magazine writer known not only for this series but also for his Singapore Sammy stories and Gillian Hazeltine mystery novels. Worts, who was born in Ohio on March 6, 1892 was a successful author, businessman and editor. When he was still a young man, he worked as a ship's radio operator much like his character, Peter the Brazen. After living most of his life on the East Coast, Worts moved to Hawaii where he died in 1967.---,any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
