Philip Gross
Monmouthshire: The Old Stile Press, 2006. Condition: Fine - Signed. Number III of X special edition copies (total edition 200), quarto size, [60] pp., signed by the artist and author. As explained in the Press's description: "The first 'poem-by-way-of-a-preface' implies that this book is a three-way collaboration of the words (the poet's) and the image (the engraver's) and the space between (the printer/designer). On this occasion, it is not just one art form responding to another. Sometimes a poem responded to a visual image, sometimes vice versa; many pages are more collaborative still, with a sketch from one prompting a draft from the other, worked up to a finished picture and redrafted poem once the printer's hand has set them in their space. Poppies, trees, fire, natural forms all excite the different forms of expression found here. Peter Reddick was, for many years, one of the most highly regarded of British wood engravers and his work has appeared in many Penguin books, those of the Folio Society and Limited Editions Club, New York. He has inspired students not only in Glasgow and Bristol but further afield in Ghana and he was the founder of Spike Island, the lively Bristol Printmaking studio. Philip Gross is a renowned poet and successful writer of thrilling and challenging novels for young people, of plays, science fiction and radio short stories. ' . . he should be recognized as one of England's very best poets . . . for the exuberance of his imagination." DESCRIPTION: Original quarter brown cloth and printed paper-covered boards with detail from one of the engrav … [Click Below for Full Description]

This is the ultra rare first American edition. Housed in a facsimile dust wrapper. This is the only copy of this title available anywhere online presently. "Published the year after Lewis began what was to be a 30-year career at Magdalen College, Oxford, Dymer took the longest to write of any of his books, but was the least successful commercially, despite many favourable reviews." (Dr Edwin W Brown: In pursuit of CS Lewis, Authorhouse, 2006) As his biographer, George Sayer, notes in Jack: C S Lewis and His Times, " So few copies of the first edition were sold that it is now an even rarer book than Spirits in Bondage. Not more than a dozen copies are known to exist. " Dr Edwin W Brown, in his 2006 aforementioned bibliography of Lewis' works notes: " The first American edition of Dymer is even rarer than the first British edition, and few copies in the dust jacket are to be found. " Presently, no copies of this title are available on the market anywhere that I am aware of. Abebooks do have one copy available of the first British edition with Blackwell Rare Books in Oxford which is priced, without d/w, at £1500.00 https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dymer.

JM Coetzee
Isle of Man: Oak Tree Press. Condition: ___ All seven volumes are in fine condition; like new. Seven volumes, number 60 of 150 deluxe hand-bound copies, quarto size, approx. [294] pp. total, signed by the authors, 6 of 7 volumes with a signed and numbered print from the illustrator. The "First Chapter Series" was launched in 2006, with the publication of Oak Tree Fine Press's first ever book, "The Life and Times of Michael K," illustrated in black and white by South African artist Colbert Mashile. The support of Nobel Prize winner J. M. Coetzee has been vital to the success of the series, and its second volume featured his Booker Prize winning novel of 1999, "Disgrace." Since then, a wide range of authors have collaborated on the series, linked by their shared status as Booker Prize winners, and their mutual interest in contributing to a worthwhile cause through the creation of beautiful and thought provoking book. Each book is comprised of the first chapter of the title, accompanied by an illustration made especially for the series. All proceeds from the original sales were targeted at organizations which offer support to the child victims of the African HIV/AIDS crisis. Originally featuring designs by up and coming authors, the series has expanded to include signed works by some of our greatest living artists. In each volume, the images offer an acutely relevant and valuable perspective on the themes and styles of these inspiring literary works.

Samuel Beckett
San Francisco / New York: The Arion Press / Grove Press. Condition: Fine - Signed. Artist book: Number 68 of 300, elephant folio size, [67] pp., signed by William T. Wiley, with prospectus and invitation to the publication party. Trade book: octavo size, 365 pp. Samuel Beckett (1906-1989) is considered one of the last modernist writers, and a key figure in what is known as the "Theatre of the Absurd." Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature (1969), most of us are aware of Beckett and "Godot"; however, as the prospectus states, "his works still cry out for explanations - explanations that Beckett himself adamantly refused to give". For anyone who has been grappling with this explanation, this wonderful artist's book will shed new light: it is not the play, it is ABOUT the play. Andrew Hoyem designed the artist's book to illuminate the play itself, which is why it was published with the trade, bi-lingual edition which we also offer here. This artist's book was published in honor of the hundredth anniversary of the birth of Beckett, the Irish avant-garde novelist, playwright, poet and translator. American artist William T. Wiley uses wordplay and visual puns to carry the reader deeper still into irreverence, with fifty colour plates each with five lines of text beneath which offer a synopsis of the play or with stage directions. The artist book should be read with the play itself; it is a book written out of love and admiration by a loyal aficionado of Beckett's plays.

Arthur Waley
Llandogo, Monmouthshire: 2006. Condition: Fine. Number VI of X of the Special Edition, folio size, [56] pp., signed by Ralph Kiggell, together with a suite of four signed prints. A selection of Chinese poems from "170 Chinese Poems" 1918, and "Chinese Poems" 1946, translated by Arthur David Waley (1889-1966). Waley performed the remarkable feat of teaching himself both classical Chinese and Japanese, and using those skills to translate the high points of literature from each culture for the English-reading public. He was the translator of "The Tale of Genji", as well as many other now well-known Chinese and Japanese pieces of literature, with many of his translations still in print today. He served as a sort of unofficial ambassador of the East to the West, and greatly admired their literature and art, although he never visited either country. The poems that artist Ralph Kiggell selected for this work move in chronological order, dating from the Han Dynasty to the Sung Dynasty. The poems chosen were those that inspired Kiggell, who specializes in woodblock prints. He studied traditional woodblock printing techniques at the atelier of the Yoshida family in Tokyo, and later in Kyoto with Akira Kurosaki, and also completed a Master's course in woodblock printmaking at Tama Art University with Fukita Fumiaki and Keisei Kobayashi. His work tends to find strength in collaboration; the subjects are often animals, plants, and landscapes, and he has illustrated other works for The Old Stile Press, most notably "The Third Thing" published in 2013. DESCRIPTION: Case-bound, stiff orang … [Click Below for Full Description]

THOMPSON, Hunter S.) STEADMAN, Ralph
(n.p.), 2006. (n.p.): (n.p.). 2006. An "artist's proof" for a limited edition print of the iconic artwork used on the dust jacket of Hunter Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Inscribed by Steadman in 2006. Note that Steadman drew this scene with the driver on the British side: Random House had to reverse the art for publication. Approximately 28" x 20". A handful of Steadman-esque stains, thus near fine; attractively matted and framed. We believe the edition was intended to be 100, although it appears to be more scarce than that figure would suggest. No Binding.

Johnson, Samuel; Roger Lonsdale (Editor)
Oxofrd, UK. 2006 First Thus. 4 Fine Hardbacks. Sealed. Fine slipcase. Johnson himself wrote in 1782: 'I know not that I have written any thing more generally commended than the Lives of the Poets'. Always recognized as a major biographical and critical achievement, Samuel Johnson's last literary project is also one of his most readable and entertaining, written with characteristic eloquence and conviction, and at times with combative trenchancy. Johnson's fifty-two biographies constitute a detailed survey of English poetry from the early seventeenth century down to his own time, with extended discussions of Cowley, Milton, Waller, Dryden, Addison, Prior, Swift, Pope, and Gray. The Lives also include Johnson's memorable biography of the enigmatic Richard Savage (1744), the friend of his own early years in London. Roger Lonsdale's Introduction describes the origins, composition, and textual history of the Lives, and assesses Johnson's assumptions and aims as biographer and critic. The commentary provides a detailed literary and historical context, investigating Johnson's sources, relating the Lives to his own earlier writings and conversation, and to the critical opinions of his contemporaries, as well as illustrating their early reception. This is the first scholarly edition since George Birkbeck Hill's three-volume Oxford edition (1905). UK Postage £3.20; Airmail to Europe £18.40; Airmail to Rest of the World £33.40. We only use airmail as surface mail can take up to 10 weeks [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
