        The Tales of Beedle the Bard (Presentation Copy)

      London: Bloomsbury / Children's High Level Group, 2008. First trade edition. Fine. A Fine copy in the publisher's original illustrated boards. Slightest bumping to the corners, otherwise unworn. No dust jacket, as issued. Warmly inscribed by the author: "To Dan with love from J. K. Rowling" with security hologram on the half-title. After the success of the Harry Potter series, Rowling created this spin-off work of short stories, including "The Tale of the Three Brothers" which figures prominently in the plot of "The Deathly Hallows" as well as four other short tales. The author originally created seven handwritten manuscripts in 2007 as gifts for the people associated with the series, auctioning one off for charity (it brought 1.95 million pounds). The following year it was published and released in this edition and in a deluxe edition. However, unlike previous releases, there was only one signing event for this book, at the National Library of Scotland for a group of around 200 children, ages 8 - 11 selected through a lottery. The warmth of this inscription implies a more personal connection and is likely a copy given by the author to a friend. Fine.

        The Ludwig von Beethoven Diamond

      One of only three created from locks of Beethovenís hair! From ìThe Beethoven locks of hair used for creating these LifeGems have been authenticated and provided exclusively by John Reznikoff of University Archives Ã? The Beethoven LifeGem diamond creation process was completed in 2008 and has since been added to the LifeGem ëchain of fameíÃ?î Beethovenís carbon was collected from the hair, purified into graphite, subjected to heat and pressure in a diamond press, and finally faceted into a LifeGem. The Ludwig von Beethoven LifeGem diamond is a blue .56 carat round brilliant diamond which was the first ever created from the carbon of a celebrity or historical figure. Three diamonds were created partially from 130 mg of carbon extracted from 10 strands of hair from the remains of Beethoven, and partially from added carbon. One of the three diamonds was listed for auction on with a ìBuy It Nowî price of $1 million, with the proceeds to be donated to charity. With a starting bid of $50,000, the diamond was eventually sold for $202,700 after 62 bids on . One of the other two diamonds was given to John Reznikoff, and the third diamond is being kept by LifeGem for the LifeGem "Chain of Fame.î

      (PRINCE, RICHARD). Frey, James. RICHARD PRINCE: CANAL ZONE. New York: Gagosian Gallery, 2008. First Edition. Oblong 4to. Illustrated Boards. Artist Monograph. As New/No Jacket - As Issued. 91pp, profusely illustrated in color. Designed by Graphic Thought Process. Published in conjunction with a 2008 Gagosian Gallery New York exhibition, this elegant hardbound catalogue featuring a textual contribution by James Frey reproduced the first showing of Richard Prince's "Canal Zone" body of work. "Following his burlesque dialogues with the art of De Kooning, Picasso, and Naughty Nurse pulp fiction, Prince has turned to his own biographical roots for inspiration. The Panama Canal Zone, where he was born, was, until 1979, a political exclave of the U.S., part-colonial company enclave and part-socialist government, purportedly dominated by virulent separatist racism. In his characteristic manner, Prince has transformed the former reality of his birthplace into a fictive space: providing an anarchic tropical scenario in which extreme emanations of the (white American male) id, fleshy female pin-ups, Rastafarians with massive dreadlocks, electric guitars, and virile black bodies run riot".

The pages are clean, crisp, unmarked and uncreased with no underlining, highlighting, or notes. We package all books in custom cardboard book boxes for shipment and ship daily with tracking numbers.; "Richard Lynn s new book shows that in many multi-racial countries, people of Jewish and East Asian ancestry average highest in IQ and socio-economic position, Whites next highest, South Asians and Hispanics next highest, and people of African descent consistently average at lower levels. Lynn argues that the average population group differences in socio-economic position (education levels, earnings, welfare dependency) are due to their average differences in intelligence. Since these differences also translate into fertility patterns, with the lowest IQ populations having more children, the specter of a dysgenic future is raised. Altogether the issues are discussed separately across 13 countries or areas of the world: the United States, Africa, Australia, Brazil, Britain, Canada, the Caribbean, Hawaii, Latin America, the Netherlands, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia.Table of Contents: Africa; Australia; Brazil; Britain; Canada; The Caribbean; Hawaii; Latin America; The Netherlands; New Zealand; Southeast Asia; The United States; Conclusions; Appendix: Intelligence Tests, References, Name Index, and Subject Index."; 8.90 X 5.90 X 0.90 inches; 380 pages .

A pristine copy of the Bentley Edition described as follows: The special series edition is bound in Bodoniana style cases finished in 'Burnt Oak' leather - sourced from Conceria Pasubia Spa tannery in Italy, which provides the hides for Bentley. The leather casing is then stitched in the iconic Bentley diamond pattern, as found on the radiator grille and the upholstery of modern Bentleys. The stitching is hand applied by one of the best artisan binders in Italy. The Bentley 'Flying B' - the radiator cap of the Bentleys of Bond's time - adorns the front cover and spine. The inside of the casing is trimmed in deep red 'Hotspur' leather - with the striking fluting used on 1950s and 1960s Bentley interior upholstery. Inside the front cover, each edition is individually identified by its unique edition number on a black lacquer machined aluminium plate, produced by Rudd Macnamara, who supply the engine plates for Bentley.The book is printed by Graphicom in Italy - who have used a Munken Print Cream 150gsm paper stock - a high quality FSC uncoated paper appropriate for such an edition. The typography reflects exactly the styling of the Bentley owner's manuals. Each book block is then die-cut with a car-shaped silhouette. Then the pièce-de-résistance - into this die-cut hole is inserted a cast and polished 1:43 scale model of the modified R Type which Bond drove - 'the Locomotive'. The model has been crafted by hand by Bentley's current design team, and reflects all the details Fleming includes in his novels. Compulsion Gallery Ltd have produced just 300 of these models - each one is individually numbered to match each Special Series book. Finally - each book is protected by a custom-made Plexiglass slip-case, which itself will be sealed in protective and numbered wrapping to ensure that this exclusive luxury edition reaches you in perfect condition. .

Signed limited edition, one of 10 copies only, each signed and numbered in pencil by the artist, Mary Swisher and also signed by the author of the Introduction, William T. Vollmann, the prints on Crane&#39;s rag card stock and the Titlepage, Colophon, and Introduction on BFK Rives. Page size: 19- 1/4 x 14-1/2 inches for 3 text pages; 6 platinum prints are on sheets 14 x 11 inches with images 6-1/2 x 4-3/8 inches, 3-1/8 x 4-1/2 inches, 4-5/8 x 3-5/8 inches, 9-3/8 x 7-7/16 inches, 9-7/8 x 7-1/2 inches, and 9-1/2 x 7- 1/2 inches (for images 1-6 respectively), all matted to 20 x 16 inches; 9pp. Bound: loose in custom-made buff "Cotlin" cloth with title printed in brown and original platinum-palladium print 6-3/8 x 4-1/4 inches both onlaid to cover within indents, salmon colored Bugra paper edges of box and lining trays, made by L. J. Dillon. & The Colophon tells the reader / viewer that Ms. Swisher uses an 8 x 10 and 5 x 7 Deardorff camera and mixes her platinum-palladium chemicals with which she coats the Crane&#39;s rag paper. She lays the negative onto the paper coated with this light sensitive solution and prints in the sun light. Using the ammonium system, which depends on humidity, she achieves images of a unique split tonality. The delicacy and luminosity of these platinum-palladium prints suit the subject matter - the artist&#39;s images of her daughters in the garden - perfectly. The text is set in Centaur and printed by Robert Dickover of Stalwart Press. The images are all titled in pencil and the first image - that of a tree - is labeled "Daphne&#39;s Escape." It is an image, curiously resembling the torso of a female - that leads into the images of her daughters - both clothed and nude. Almost other-worldly, they evoke a time when humans were more closely intertwined with the natural world. Mary Swisher is a well-known California photographer and has received two National Endowment of the Arts grants and a California Council for the Arts grant for the project A PHOTOGRAPHY SURVEY OF THE SACRAMENTO VALLEY 1850-1950. She was one of the featured photographers in the book, PRESIDIO GATEWAY, which documents San Francisco&#39;s 218-year-old army post before it became a national park. Her work is widely shown and is in museums and private collections in Europe, the United States and Japan. <br>See an <A HREF= >Image.</A><br>
