        The Story of High Street

      Small 4to., original cloth lettered in silver on spine with paper label on upper board. A mint copy in slipcase. First edition. "Seventy years ago Country Life Books published High Street, a children's book of shops, featuring twenty-four exquisite lithographs by the English artist Eric Ravilious (1903-1942). Although the book was not a limited edition, the destruction of the lithographic plates during the Blitz meant that only 2000 copies were ever printed. Subsequently High Street has become one of the most highly-prized artist's books of its time This new limited edition includes not only the original shop fronts and text of High Street but also two extensive essays and an eclectic range of illustrations, preparatory drawings and sketches, many of them published for the first time. In a substantial and wide-ranging examination of the making of High Street, art historian Dr Alan Powers places the book in historical context, giving new and significant insights into its conception, production and publication. Initially Ravilious approached the Golden Cockerel Press with his 'alphabet of shops', but the book, with text by J.M. Richards, was eventually published by Noel Carrington, brother of the artist Dora Carrington and editor at Country Life Books. His enthusiasm for autolithography and children's books - he also launched the famous Puffin Picture Book series - made him the ideal publisher for High Street, although Ravilious also benefited from the invaluable support of the Curwen Press. In the second essay, writer and historian James Russell describes a quest to identify and locate each of the shops depicted by Ravilious. These twenty-four businesses were, as J. M. Richards pointed out in the foreword to the 1938 book, all real places, but in many cases we are given only tantalising clues as to their name or location. You can still buy cheese at Paxton and Whitfield, a shop that has changed little in appearance over the years, but in most other cases the quest has proved much harder. The Story of High Street traces the journey Ravilious took to create his idiosyncratic masterpiece, discovering the people he met on the way and finding out what became of the shops themselves. Ravilious created a historical document, a brightly coloured snapshot of England on the eve of World War Two, a unique portrait of a nation of shopkeepers. Exploring the fate of his twenty-four shops, The Story of High Street offers an intriguing commentary on that nation's subsequent history."

        The Temple of Flora (Limited Edition)

      Folio Society. Fine. 2008. First Folio Edition. Elephant Folio - over 15" - 23" tall Limited Edition Copy No. 325 of the Folio Society's limited edition of 600. A fine copy, presented in the original solander box, bound in buckram. Includes the commentary volume by Stephen Harris and the two 22" x 17¾" fine art prints of 'A Group of Tulips' and 'The Blue Egyptian Water-Lily' in envelope as issued. This is the first ever full-size facsimile of the greatest English florilegium. Quarter-bound in Nigerian goatskin with cloth sides. Front board printed and blocked with a design by David Eccles from 'The Night-Blowing Cereus'. 232 pp with 9 preliminary monochrome plates, 5 preliminary colour plates and 29 flower illustrations. Text printed on felt-marked Modigliani Neve paper and plates printed on Modigliani Insize. Green ribbon marker; coloured top edges. Book Size: 22½" x 18¼". Robert Thornton was the visionary creator of the finest of all English flower books, The Temple of Flora. Despite being neither an artist nor a professional botanist, he was fascinated by the rapid development in botanical knowledge of his time and inspired by the success of flower books in France. Thornton was convinced that Britain should be leading Europe in both the arts and the sciences, and wrote that he planned to create a botanical book which would be a National Honour, ‘which in Point of Magnificence is intended to exceed all other Works of a similar Nature on the ContinentÂ’. In posterityÂ’s eyes, he succeeded, although he bankrupted himself in the process. Today the plates from this near-legendary work are some of the loveliest and most popular of all flower illustrations. Although much loved as prints and frequently reproduced in books on botanical art, there has never been a full facsimile of The Temple of Flora, presenting the plates as they were originally meant to be seen - together with ThorntonÂ’s idiosyncratic and charming text. From the delicate colouring of A Group of Tulips and elegant form of The Sacred Egyptian Bean to the drama of The Night-Blowing Cereus (on which the binding design of this edition was based) and The Dragon Arum, these plates are exceptional works of art, whose value, both monetary and cultural, has steadily increased with the passage of time. A fine copy without defect other than light crease to limitation certificate. The solander box is also in fine condition with a few minor knocks to edges. Complete and in original FS packaging. Heavy/oversize set which may incur an additional postage cost. .

        McCain’s Promise: Aboard the Straight Talk Express with John McCain and a Whole Bunch of Actual Reporters, Thinking About Hope.

      Boston: Back Bay Books, 2008. First edition. Octavo, original illustrated wrappers. Signed by David Foster Wallace on the title page. In fine condition. Rare signed as Foster Wallace passed away only three months after the publication of this volume. To get at "something riveting and unspinnable and true" about John McCain, Wallace finds he must pierce the smoke screen of spin doctors and media manipulators. And he succeeds-in a characteristically potent blast of journalistic brio that not only captures the lunatic rough-and-tumble of a presidential campaign but also delivers a compelling inquiry into John McCain himself: the senator, the POW, the campaign finance reformer, the candidate, the man. "Wallace conveys a geniuine disillusionment at the sham of the whole arrangement: the endless political posturing, the robotic news coverage...At the same time, he recognize's McCain's essential magnetism" (Steve Almond, Los Angeles Time Book Review).

        Lecons de Livre pour Calyban or Prosper's Parisian Printing Parade. Bon mots, bagatelles, & tableaux de l'imprimerie. Also a sometime type specimen & leaf book. As Told to an American. Pochoir by Jef Aerosol

      St-Zotique, Quebec [Canton, NY]: Cat's Head Press [Caliban Press], 2008. One of 114 copies, all on various papers including Rives and Arches, vintage Barcham Green handmade, St-Armand handmade from Montreal, Quebec, Kochi from Japan and handmade lokta from Nepal, each signed by the author / printer. Mark McMurray has created his own look at printing history in Paris, with a dark back story of immigrant life in the "City of Light." Page size: 8-1/4 x 12 inches; 48pp. Bound: flexible quarter dark grey vellum binding by Velma Bolyard from Pergamena Parchment, Montgomery, NY and St-Armand handmade grey papers, label printed "Lessons" in lavender on white paper inserted into front cover, publisher's slipcase. Issued with a separate sheet of "Lecons Notes" which explain some of the images and text. From Melissa Schulenberg's portrait of Nancy Cunard (original relief print) to figures from the 1493 "Liber chronicarum" to woodcuts to found images, this tour of Paris delights. The text consists of fourteen lessons in English and French concerning the Arts of the Book and sundry other old and new topics. Collected from found and fabricated texts by the two main semi-fictional characters, Cal & Prosper, who are visiting Paris to learn the art of printing. This, then, is also a type specimen and a leaf book. It recalls printers past and present who have produced books in Paris. It is printed in several colors on cylinder and hand presses from foundry, monotype, photopolymer & wood types set by hand, machine composition, and computer. The primary face is Garamond. Additional faces include Fournier, Caslon, Nicholas Cochin and others. Monotype composition by Michael Bixler; photopolymer plates by Boxcar Press. The original signed pochoir by Jef Aerosol of Samuel Beckett is a stunner. The small "gold" man (cut-out paper doll) in the Treizieme Lecon "Who's that?" is collaged on a page of Arab text opposite a map of the Quartier Latin with text in French and English guessing at his identity - or commenting on it. "Ubu reincarne?"

Volumes 1 to 7, and 22 bound in blue buckram with gilt lettering; Vols. 8 to 21, 23-67 bound in tan buckram. Ex-library with stamps and location labels on spines, else very good. Publisher's Price USD 5,995. Special $1,795. * A peer-reviewed academic law journal that is the principal academic publication of the Faculty of Law of the University of Cambridge. Founded in 1921 it is the longest running university law journal in the United Kingdom. Its current editor is John Bell. Based on the outcomes of the 2001 Research Assessment Exercise a 2006 analysis ranked the journal as overall the 7th most influential in the United Kingdom. It publishes articles on all aspects of law with special emphasis on contemporary developments, but the journal's range includes jurisprudence and legal history. A recent development is the Shorter Articles section for more topical pieces, which sometimes engages in controversial issues. An important feature of the journal is the Case and Comment section, in which members of the Cambridge Law Faculty and other distinguished contributors analyse recent judicial decisions, new legislation and current law reform proposals. The articles and case notes are designed to have the widest appeal to those interested in the law - whether as practitioners, students, teachers, judges, or administrators - and to provide an opportunity for them to keep abreast of new ideas and the progress of legal reform. Also includes a book review section.
