"During the Second World War the War Damage Section of the Architect's Department of the London County Council recorded the degree of damage due to enemy action to buildings across the 117 square miles of the Administrative County of London. Using the relevant sheets of the 1:25,000 Ordnance Survey maps, the Architect's staff hand-coloured the maps according to the degree of damage suffered by each building. The sheets also indicated the impact points of the German V1 flying bombs and V2 long-range rockets of 1944 and 1945, together with the extensive devastation that they caused" (introduction). Collected and reprinted here they offer "a unique insight into the shaping of modern London". Uncommon, just seven copies listed on Copac, all but two of these in London. [Attributes: First Edition]

        No Country For Old Men.

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2005. Signed by Cormac McCarthy. First edition / First printing. Special signed edition: One of an unknown number of copies signed by the author on a special bound-in page. Black paper-covered boards. Very fine in very fine dust jacket. A beautiful copy of this fine novel. This is a perfect copy, it has been stored flat in a dark place to avoid spine lean and fading. It was put in a clear mylar at the time of purchase and has absolutely no wear to the dust jacket. The spine ends of the text are crisp and unworn and unbent. I have looked at numerous copies online and in stores. Many have been displayed on stands, which leads to a canted spine and fading. Our copy is flawless. Basis for the Joel and Ethan Coen's film, 2008 Academy Award Winner for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor for Javier Bardem.

      - Ad 1: WorldCat (1 copy, as issued in the proceedings); ad 2: Cohen, French encounter with Africans, p. 242 & note 86 on pp. 340-341; for De Froberville’s work in Mauritius: Vaughan, Creating the Creole Island: slavery in eighteenth-century Mauritius (2005), p. 267. Two offprints discussing the researches of the French ethnographer Eugène de Froberville (1790-1871) in Mauritius on the languages and races of sub-equatorial East African, the first one published in Mauritius. The first is especially interesting, because it is an account of a lecture De Froberville gave at the Royal Society of Arts and Sciences of Mauritius, apparently on 8 February 1844, and his lecture does not appear to have been published on its own. The present account, comprising primarily long quotations from De Froberville's lecture (including an 11-page comparative table of East African languages), may therefore be the best record of his lecture.Bound before the offprints is a signed autograph letter from De Froberville, written in Port Louis, Mauritius, on 7 August 1846. It does not name the person he is addressing, but it seems likely to have been sent to Louis Bouton concerning his publication of De Froberville's lecture. A signed autograph note by Bouton on the first page of the 1846 offprint identifies him as the author of the parts that are not directly quoted from De Froberville.With the second offprint foxed, but both otherwise in very good condition. A rare record of early French research into East African languages.

        An Invitation To British Columbia, A Letter From T.E. Lawrence To Martin A. Grainger. Preface by Jeremy Wilson, Foreword by Don Stewart.

      8vo., original speckled faux parchment stamped in black. Printed on handmade paper. Frontispiece, pp.20 plus the facsimile of the original letter. The letter facsimile was printed on vegetable parchment from polymer plates by David Clifford. A fine copy. First edition of this previously unrecorded Lawrence letter. Limited edition of 50 numbered copies signed by Jeremy Wilson and Don Stewart (an extra 20 copies were printed for private distribution.) A brief but illuminating letter, previously unrecorded (or published), by T.E. Shaw (i.e. T.E. Lawrence) written in 1929 to Martin Allerdale Grainger, BC's first chief forester, in response to his suggestion that Lawrence consider retiring in the province. The letter is reproduced in facsimile and type. Noted Lawrence scholar Jeremy Wilson (a co-proprietor of the Castle Hill Press) wrote the preface, and bookseller Don Stewart (MacLeod's Books) wrote a brief essay on Grainger's life in BC. As a frontispiece, the book features a wood engraving by George Kuthan, the block borrowed from the extensive collection of his original blocks at the Rare Books & Special Collections Library at the University of British Columbia. The engraving's BC logging image is particularly suited to a book associated with Grainger, the author of Woodsmen of the West (1908) and one of the province's first chief foresters.
