      - 2004 SB N&MP Reprint of Original Edition This work, which is a classic, covers the history of the British Army from the Norman Conquest down to the Cardwell reforms of 1870, when commission by purchase was finally abolished. The very last chapter of the work looks at the British Army up to 1914.Naval and Military Press have reprinted this valuable and timeless work in its entirety, faithful to the originals in all respects. The contents of the individual volumes are as follows:Vol. I - from the Battle of Hastings to the end of the Seven YearÕs War (1713). Includes such battles as Bannockburn, Crecy, Agincourt, Flodden, the battles of the English Civil War, Dunkirk Dunes, Tangiers, and the battles during MarlboroughÕs campaigns. The volume also traces the development of European Armies, infantry, cavalry and artillery, and the specific changes in Britain during the period.Vol. II - covers from the 1713 to 1763 and includes the Jacobite Rebellion of 1715, the scandals of the reign of King George I, the war with Spain and the dispute over the Austrian Succession, and the Battles of Fontenoy and Culloden. It also covers the situation in India and the contest for mastery with the French. The expansion into North America is described and the differences that arose between the French and the British, together with WolfeÕs campaigns in North America. The volume includes much material on the development of the British Army, and the problems that arose with regard to recruitment and conditions of service at that time.Vol. III - continues the story from 1763 to 1792. The continuing problems in North America are joined by the growing pains of Empire. The loss of the Americas is covered in detail, as is the state of the British Army, especially in the light of CornwallisÕ disastrous contributions to the American failure. Developments in India follow, and again Cornwallis makes a contribution to failure.Viol IV Part I - Deals with the French Revolution from 1789 to the Treaty of Amiens in 1798. It includes British operations in the Netherlands, the West Indies, South Africa and Ireland. The whole European area is described with the French and Allied nations included. Naval matters are also included, and the campaigns in Egypt and the Mediterranean are treated in detail. At the same time a close eye is kept on developments within the British Army.Vol. IV Part 2 - continues the theme of the previous part, and goes up to 1801. The examination of the British Army is also expanded, and an important appendix gives exact details of British Army pay.Vol. V - the period 1803 to 1807. Detailed treatment of the situation and operations in the East Indies and Ceylon, the West Indies, Europe and the Mediterranean. There are important chapters on conditions at home,and the air of war-weariness that was appearing. Finally, there is a description of operations in South America.Vol. VI - 1807-1809. The Napoleonic War continued, with further details of operations in Egypt and in the Mediterranean. The Swedish situation is covered, the British expedition to Copenhagen and operations in Portugal. The Spanish theatre is also examined in fine detail.Vol. VII - 1809-1810. This volume is concerned mainly with these two years in the Peninsula, but also covers the expedition to the Scheldt, and operations in the East Indies, Mauritius and Java.Vol. VII - 1809-1810. MapsVol. VIII - 1811-1812. This volume covers two more years of the campaign in the Peninsula, together with the War with the United States.

      New York City, NY: Houghton Mifflin, 2004. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. As New/As New Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: Houghton Mifflin, 2004. Hardcover. As New/As New. First Edition/First Printing. 391 pages. The author&#39;s twenty-second novel. One of the greatest novels of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a regular first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now very scarce. Explores a brilliantly imagined scenario of mass fear and takes it to its logical conclusion. Charles A. Lindbergh defeats FDR for the Presidency in 1940. Lindbergh captured the country&#39;s imagination twice: Through his solo Atlantic crossing in 1927 and the tragic kidnapping and murder of his son. He was the prototypical American hero: Brave, handsome, a "role model". He was also an isolationist, a Nazi sympathizer, and a fascist. It is these latter attributes that inform the novel. "Roth interweaves historical names such as Walter Winchell, who tries to run against Lindbergh. The twist at the end is more than surprising, it is positively ingenious. Roth has written a magnificent novel, arguably his best work in a long time. It is tempting to equate his scenario with current events, but resist, resist. Of course it is a cautionary tale, but beyond that, it is a contribution to American letters by a man working at the top of his powers" (Valerie Ryan) . In his maturity and after a lifetime of brilliant and prolific writing, Roth has pulled off the unthinkable: Another masterpiece. A "must-have" title for Philip Roth collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Philip Roth. This title is now highly collectible. This is one of very few signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> Six of Philip Roth&#39;s novels were selected as among the Top 20 works of American fiction of the last 25 years: "American Pastoral", "The Counterlife", "Operation Shylock", "Sabbath&#39;s Theater", "The Human Stain", and "The Plot Against America". One of the greatest living writers. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER PHILIP ROTH TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0618509283.

      New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 2004. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. As New/As New Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 2004. Hardcover. As New/As New. First Edition/First Printing. 1008 pages. The author&#39;s memoir. Now considered a contemporary classic. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. The true First Edition actually has many typographical errors, but one stands out because what it says means something other than what President Clinton obviously meant to say. In the Acknowledgment Page, after thanking everybody, Hillary, and his Mother, the last sentence goes: "None of them are responsible for the failure of my life but for whatever good has come out of it they deserve much of the credit". The word "failure" should be "failures", was quickly noticed by proof-reader-caliber readers and immediately corrected. It is therefore not clear how many so-called First Editions there really are. Presents President Clinton&#39;s absorbing account of his larger-than-life life. There is no living American politician/statesman who is more revered and reviled, admired and detested, loved and hated than the man who prefers to be known simply as Bill Clinton. "An exhaustive, soul-searching memoir, a refreshingly candid look at the former President as a son, brother, teacher, father, husband, and public figure. Clinton painstakingly outlines the history behind his greatest successes and failures, including his dedication to educational and economic reform, his war against a vast right-wing operation determined to destroy him, and the morally indefensible acts for which he was impeached" (Daphne Durham). A most special piece of Americana that will outlive the Presidential and post-Presidential life it often movingly tells. A "must-have" title for Bill Clinton and Americana collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Bill Clinton. It is signed directly on the page, not on a tipped-in page or a bookplate, as the Limited Editions are. Laid-in is Ticket Number 1003 for the Hue-Man Bookstore Signing in Harlem, the first and most sentimental of President Clinton&#39;s national book tour. The signing was limited to 2000 individuals, one copy per person. People waited patiently in line from eight to eighteen hours to get their book signed. This title is now highly collectible. This is one of very few signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and has absolutely no flaws, a pristine beauty. The First Edition, not the Limited Editions, will always be the edition to own. Copies available online command as much as $4000. Dealers are clearly in no great hurry to sell their remaining copy or copies because the book&#39;s collectible value will survive the fluctuations of celebrity and the hubris of Pretender-Presidents. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> Lavishly illustrated with black-and-white photographs from the author&#39;s personal collection. One of the finest Presidential memoirs ever written. A flawless collectible copy. . ISBN 0375414576.

        The Wonderful Wizard of Oz: Hand-colored Laser Prints

      Great Barrington, MA: Michael McCurdy, 2004. Quarto. One of eight copies. A suite of twenty-five laser prints of drawings by Michael McCurdy, each hand-colored, signed, and numbered by the artist. The drawings were originally done by McCurdy at the request of the University Press of Kansas, which commissioned the artist to illustrate its Kansas Centennial Edition of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz in 1999. McCurdy&#39;s drawings are bold and strong, yet still dream-like, providing a new interpretation of Baum&#39;s classic children&#39;s tale. The prints are carefully hand-colored with subtle tints and tone. The prints are housed in an emerald green clamshell box, together with a copy of the book, which is signed by the artist with an original drawing of the Scarecrow. In addition to McCurdy&#39;s illustrations, the Centennial Edition features a Foreword by Ray Bradbury. Extremely fine.

Letterpress printed in brown, rust, black, and white inks on Canson Mi Teintes papers. "Over the course of many years, I traveled a meandering road on my way to bookmaking. Printmaking led me to papermaking and marbling, then collage, and then on to binding. Among the instructors guiding me along the binding trail were James Brockman, Deborah Evetts, Gary Frost, Hedi Kyle, and Ole Olsen. Eventually, my path turned to letterpress printing where I acquired my skills from Bonnie Thompson Norman at the Windowpane Press. From there the road led directly to limited edition books. Since 1995, I have worked as the Holburne Press. My goal has been to combine unconventional book structures with printing classic texts so as to create a dimension beyond the words Ñ an added visual language." [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Hardcover. As New/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. 115 pages. Collection of panoramic color photographs. One of the greatest photography books of the decade. The First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a very small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Peter Bialobrzeski: Oversize-volume format in wide oblong shape. Pictorial hard boards with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Peter Bialobrzeski. Essays by Florian Hanig and Christof Ribbat. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Germany to the very highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents photographs of the "mega-tropolis", made possible by the economic miracle of Asia&#39;s "tiger economies". The "Neon Tigers" are Shanghai, Shenzhen, Hong Kong, Singapore, Bangkok, and Kuala Lumpur. There are shelves of books on the explosive and seemingly unstoppable growth of China, once a "sleeping giant", which nows owns more than $2 trillion in US treasury bonds and growing. Peter Bialobrzeski&#39;s eye-opening, visually rich, and resonant photographs were all taken using well, a camera. But the resulting images give new meaning to "futuristic", "larger-than-life", and "absurd", presenting a world-view "that appears as a series of dream-images from an eccentric director or computer-game designer" (Publisher&#39;s blurb). Is this Progress, as Western capitalism envisioned it, or is this barbarism, as some critics and scholars have called it? Neither. It is Power Made Visible, as only photography (rather than say, painting) can fully grasp. Bialobrzeski&#39;s images are not about fantasies but new realities: While America = suburbia, Asia = the city. The city&#39;s most visible art, architecture, and architecture&#39;s most powerful invention, the skyscraper, are visible proof that if the 20th was the American century, the 21st is the Chinese century. Bialobrzeski has emerged as one of the leading figures of the inevitable revolt against the influential Dusseldorf School. He is a neo-Romantic who believes that the messiness and rich ambiguities of modern life are the true subject of contemporary photography. Whereas Robert Polidori and Andreas Gursky are clearly awed by the gleaming vistas they photograph, Bialobrzeski is not. He sees painful ironies everywhere. For example, whereas European and American cities still have a center, the Neon Tigers have shopping centers. He asks two crucial questions: What is the cost in human terms Asians have had to pay in their single-minded pursuit of prosperity? Is the idea of the human scale still possible in the 21st century? His photographs represent his attempt at some answers. A "must-have" title for Peter Bialobrzeski collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Peter Bialobrzeski. This title is a contemporary classic. As far as we know, this is the only signed copy available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> 50 color plates. One of the most brilliant living photographers. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ANDREAS GURSKY, ROBERT POLIDORI, AND MICHAEL WOLF TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 3775713948.

        Typoscript van Jan Cremer Documentaire door Hans Dütting, met honderden eigenhandige correcties van Jan Cremer.

      - Twee ringbanden. Enkelzijdig bedrukt A4. 1-180; 181-273 p. 2004.* Volledige computerprint van deze omvangrijke monografie van Jan Cremer uit 2005, tot in elk miniem detail bestudeerd en op honderden plaatsen van correcties en aanvullingen voorzien door Jan Cremer zelf. Deze handgeschreven correcties betreffen niet alleen plaatsnamen, personen, jaartallen, formuleringen en typefouten, maar ook gebeurtenissen, situaties, citaten en hoofdstuktitels. Het namenregister achterin het boek breidt Cremer flink uit: 'namenregister aanvullen zo voluit mogelijk namen, voorletters, titels'.In het hoofdstuk over Ibiza verlegt Cremer bijvoorbeeld de focus. In de marge noteert hij: 'vóór het verschijnen van zijn romandebuut schreef Cremer veelvuldig in de Haagse Post en voorzag op die manier in zijn karige levensonderhoud. Met vrouw en kind op een armoedige zolderkamer in de Rosmarijnsteeg'. Soms is hij bijna zijn eigen biograaf. Uit de marge: 'Cremer herinnert zich later: dàt moet Florrie zijn geweest. Een kakmadam die elke avond straalbezopen door een van de obers van de El Quijote de trap moest worden opgeholpen'.Ook schrapt Jan Cremer soms flink: in het hoofdstuk over zijn familie zet hij een streep door een passage over de afkomst van zijn Hongaarse moeder. Door een alinea over het kortgeding dat Cremer verloor van wijnboer Ilja Gort staan twee ferme kruizen met de aantekening: 'Niet vermelden. Teveel eer voor kleine oplichter'.In de drukproef staat op de eerste pagina nog 'Geautoriseerde monografie': uit de vele correcties in de marge blijkt dat Jan Cremer het autoriseren zeer serieus neemt. Dat de correcties in vier of vijf verschillende kleuren viltstift zijn neergeschreven, bewijst dat Cremer zijn monografie minstens een keer of vier van de eerste tot de laatste pagina zeer secuur heeft bestudeerd.Belcampo introduceerde in 1983 met De eerste Nederlandse tiftie een nieuw genre: een biografie van een auteur afgewisseld met commentaar van de auteur zelf. Dit unieke document verdient met recht het predicaat De tweede Nederlandse tiftie!

        Salem&#39;s Lot [One of 25 Copies]

      (Wheat Ridge): Centipede Press. (2004). Published in an edition of 405 copies, this is one of one of only 25 Roman-numeraled copies printed on mouldmade Saunders Waterford paper and bound in Chieftain Goatskin and enclosed in a traycase of Japanese cotton. Only 15 of the Roman-numeraled copies were available for sale, the remainder being reserved for the author, photographer and the Press. This is number XIII. Signed by King and Uelsmann. A huge and elaborate limited edition of his second novel, first published in 1975 and here issued in a deluxe edition that includes the text of the original novel, two short stories related to it that were originally published in King&#39;s collection Night Shift, over 50 pages of material deleted from the original version, and a short introduction and a 1999 afterword by the author. Illustrated with seven full-page photographs by Jerry Uelsmann, an avant garde photographer renowned for his photomontage, whose work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and many other institutions. The book is approximately 10" x 13" and more than 4" deep, and weighs over 13 pounds. Probably the most elaborate limited edition of King&#39;s work ever published, and the smallest limitation of any of his books that have been offered for sale, as far as we are aware. A virtually impossible King title to locate or obtain. A fine copy, in fine traycase. . First Edition.

Presents Dave Heath&#39;s spare and luminous photographs of his stint in the Korean War, which were first exhibited in 1958 to enormous critical acclaim: "Mr Heath is a relatively new photographer and truly a discovery. His pictures reveal compassion and understanding, penetration and a masterly use of the medium" (The New York Times). "Heath photographed his fellow soldiers in the winter of 1953-54, the early months of a tenuous truce producing a suite of introspective portraits permeated with the malaise of war. It is a body of work that defined the young photographer as an artist" (Michael Torosian). Among great photographers, Dave Heath is the least prolific. "A Dialogue With Solitude" and now, "Korea" are his only books. A "must-have" title for Dave Heath collectors. <b><i> This copy is one of the Limited Edition, indicated and numbered as such on the Back Limitation Page, and is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Dave Heath.
