        Sweet New England

      Norwich, VT, 2014. Artist's book, one of 7 copies, all on white paper, each copy signed and numbered by the artist on the colophon. Page size: 7-1/4 x 4-3/4 inches; 18pp; including colophon. Bound by the artist: drum leaf style, brown cloth over boards with small onlay of stenciled image of Necco wafer on front panel. Text printed letterpress in 24pt. Futura Italicwith titlepage in Futura Medium 48 and 18pt. Images hand stenciled by the artist. Stephanie Wolff notes in the colophon that the commercial confections featured in SWEET NEW ENGLAND all originated in Massachusetts... Further, "the discovery of maple sugar candy happened so many years ago the date and details are unknown, but it has long been considered a New England sweet." The candies are named and pictured with the date of their first appearance: Junior Mints 1949, Sugar Daddy 1925, Charleston Chew 1922, Marshmallow Fluff 1917, Conversation Hearts 1866, Necco Wafers 1849, and Maple Sugar Candy. Each confection's image is reduced to a stylized essence - love the pastel ribbons of Necco Wafers which fill their pages ignoring the idea of margins and the organic shape of Marshmallow Fluff bordered with sky-blue outline. The vertical views of the Charleston Chew contrast nicely with the rectangular Sugar Daddy's, while the simple chocolate oval of the Junior Mint evokes the uncomplicated pleasures of all these confections. A most delightful book to be savored - elegantly simple with the immediate thrill of strong color images filling the reader / viewer with memories of childhood pleasures. Stephanie Wolff is an artist, bookbinder, printer and book conservator working in Vermont. She was the Fall 2015 Helen M. Salzberg Artist-in-Residence at the Jaffe Center for Book Arts after being awarded the Creative and Performing Artists and Writers Fellowship at the American Antiquarian Society.

        The Lunar Bible; First Printed Book to Make Landfall on Another Celestial Body

      - Apollo 13 Flown and Apollo 14 Lunar Module Flown Complete Lunar Bible Copy Number 14-17, with Certificate of Authenticity Signed by Apollo 14 Lunar Module Pilot Ed Mitchell and Apollo Prayer League Representative James W. Stout. A 1.5" x 1.5" complete Microform Bible, one of only twelve Astronaut Flight-Certified Bibles of its kind, resting within a hand-made reliquary containing over one-half troy pound (6.6 troy ounces) of 22 Karat gold beset with symbolic gemstones. The handmade full-calf binding within which the solid gold reliquary rests is by Don Etherington, parchment consultant to the National Archives for the "Declaration of Independence" and "U.S. Constitution"; it is all contained within a custom deluxe red leather presentation display (30" x 13" opened) with the accompanying Certificate of Authenticity. This rare complete Lunar Bible contains all 1245 pages of the King James Bible (both Old and New Testaments); it appropriately contains the account of God's creation of the Moon in Genesis 1:16, and was printed as a miniature Microform book out of necessity, given the size and weight constraints for flight to the lunar surface. Excellent. A companion Lunar Bible (Copy 14-8: "The Museum of the Bible" example) was displayed at the Vatican ("Verbum Domini II") between April 2 and June 22, 2014. Vatican Radio's recent press release titled "Bible Exhibit Opens in Vatican" mentions only three of the more than 200 artifacts in the exhibit by name: the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Codex Vaticanus, and the Lunar Bible. One hundred complete copies of the Lunar Bible landed on the Moon during Apollo 14 in the Personal Preference Kit ("PPK") of Moonwalker Edgar D. Mitchell (after having been previously flown to the Moon aboard the Apollo 13 mission). This Bible thus flew to the Moon twice, having circled it once on Apollo 13 and then accomplishing its purpose by landing on the Moon during Apollo 14! It then spent three days housed in the Lunar Module Antares, where it resided under the one-sixth gravity of the Moon and was exposed directly to the lunar environment each time the hatch was opened for moonwalks. Exhibitions: The Atlanta Masonic Library & Museum "The Lunar Bible Exhibit" This Lunar Bible: • Is one of the "Twelve Apostles" copies of the Lunar Bible, consisting of the twelve complete Lunar Bibles officially flight-certified by Edgar D. Mitchell and James W. Stout (former "Apollo Prayer League Governing Committee Official") in the millennial year 2000. • Is the first printing of the Bible ever carried by mankind to landfall on another celestial world to symbolize God's universal presence, and as such of supreme worldwide religious importance. • Is the first published book ever carried by mankind to landfall on another celestial world, and as such of profound importance to the rare book community worldwide. • Landed on the Moon with Masonic astronauts Alan B. Shepard and Edgar D. Mitchell, and as such of profound importance within the Masonic world given that Freemasons carried it. • Is perhaps the supreme marriage of science and religion within any physical object on Earth, for in a poetical sense this has been described as the "Bible built by God carried in a rocket built by Man". No other copy for sale worldwide. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

B. info from colophon), typeface Storm Sans on Canaletto Liscio, designed at The Old Stile Press; folio size (approximately 13" tall), unpaginated with 22 printed leaves, signed by translator Dick Jones and artist Natalie d'Arbeloff; this copy no.

"I have fond memories of growing up in this place. I remember the sounds of the plant - the ongoing hum of the various plant operations and the sound of the dinky trains as they brought limestone from the quarry or red clay from the pits near the Verdigris River. In the afternoon dynamite blasts set off in the quarry caused the windows in our house to rattle. The houses were moved into town in 1959. "The plant fell silent when production ended in 2008.

        John Nichols's The progresses and public processions of Queen Elizabeth I: a new edition of the early modern sources / general editors, Elizabeth Goldring, Faith Eales, Elizabeth Clarke, Jayne Elisabeth Archer; associate general ... (Truncated)

      Oxford, United Kingdom: Oxford University Press, 2014, Hardcover, 1st edition. Full Book Title: John Nichols's The progresses and public processions of Queen Elizabeth I: a new edition of the early modern sources / general editors, Elizabeth Goldring, Faith Eales, Elizabeth Clarke, Jayne Elisabeth Archer; associate general editors, Gabriel Heaton, Sarah Knight. An exceptional copy in the original gilt-blocked cloth. Particularly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and strong. Literally as new Physical description; 5 volumes: illustrations (black and white, and colour), maps (black and white); 25 cm. Notes; Includes bibliographical references and indexes. English or Latin. Contents; v. 1. 1533-1571 -- v. 2. 1572-1578 --v. 3. 1579-1595 -- v. 4. 1596-1603 -- v. 5. Appendices; Biographical dictionary; List of principal office holders and prelates; Bibliography; Indexes. Summary; John Nichols's The Progresses of Queen Elizabeth (1788-1823) has long been an indispensable reference tool for scholars working on Elizabethan court and culture - despite the serious limitations of an antiquarian edition now two centuries old. This old-spelling edition of the early modern materials contained in Nichols's Progresses is edited to high and consistent standards, and based on a critical re-examination of printed and manuscript sources. It is structured by a narrative of the two sets of annual progresses undertaken by Queen Elizabeth I: the 'summer progresses,' when Elizabeth travelled throughout southern England and the Midlands, visiting cities as far afield as Bristol, Coventry, Norwich, and Southampton; and the 'winter progresses,' when Elizabeth moved between her residences in and around London, including Richmond, Hampton Court, and Whitehall. New editions of the major progress entertainments - Kenilworth, Woodstock, Elvetham, Cowdray, Ditchley, and Harefield - are set alongside accounts of civic receptions, tilts and Accession Day entertainments, and non-dramatic texts, many of which have not been published since Nichols, including verses delivered by Eton scholars before the Queen (1563); John Lesley's Oratio (1574); Gabriel Harvey's Gratulationum Valdinensium (1578); and the Oxford and Cambridge verses on the death of Queen Elizabeth (1603). The editions are supported by translations of all non-English material, full scholarly annotation, illustrations, and maps. This will make John Nichols's The Progresses and Public Processions of Queen Elizabeth: A New Edition of the Early Modern Sources the most comprehensive collection of early modern texts pertaining to the court and culture of Queen Elizabeth.
