Description:
Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1982. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good/Very good. Critical biography of the American photographer whose career paralleled the development of the abstract expressionist painters, many of whom were his close friends. Siskind (1903-91) focused on the details of nature and architecture, presenting them as flat surfaces to create a new image out of them, which, he claimed, stands independent of the original subject. Features 74 duotone and 198 halftone illustrations. Signed by Aaron Siskind and Carl Chiarenza on the title page. Quarto. Original brown cloth binding, with silver titles. The dust jacket is moderately sun faded along the spine; otherwise very good.

1953 1st, 1953. First edition. Hardcover. Dust Jacket Included. Illustrated by John T. Brooks. Reading, PA: Polaris Press, 1953. First edition, one of 1,500 numbered copies. First published in "Argosy" in 1915, "The Abyss of Wonders" mixes Theosophy and superscience in this tale of a lost race in the Gobi Desert. The second of two publications by Polaris Press, representing Lloyd Arthur Eshbach's attempt to publish some noteworthy and neglected science fiction tales that did not seem to fit into his Fantasy Press program. Chalker and Owings assert that, despite the statement on the limitation page, only 990 copies of this book were printed. Some very mild wear along the spine of the dust jacket; otherwise an especially crisp and clean copy in the publisher's slipcase, which is faded and somewhat edgeworn. Chalker, J. & M. Owings: Science-Fantasy Publishers, p.350.

Description:
London: Bloomsbury, 2013. Hardcover. Fine. This book is a study of 'Romantic Pantheism' and its part in the development of the Romantic theory of the Imagination. The crucial point in the history of English Romanticism came when the philosophical concept of the 'active universe' met the developing theory of the Imagination. In its leading sense, Imagination meant full response to, and implication with, the living qualities of natural objects. That is why it was able to assimilate and transform contemporary theories of merely passing interest into an important poetic approach to the universe." Octavo. Original glossy boards; issued without a dust jacket. A fine copy.

New York: Funk & Wagnalls, 1885. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Few telegrams shocked the fashionable world in the United States more than that received in mid-August 1880 announcing the sudden death in a French hotel of the English actress Adelaide Neilson (1848-80). From her first visit to America in 1872 at Booth's Theatre in New York, playing Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, Julia in The Hunchback, Rosalind in Twelfth Night, and Pauline in The Lady from Lyons until her fourth and final tour in the winter of 1879-80, she enjoyed a critical and popular adoration unequaled by any actress of the age, with the possible exception of Lotta Crabtree. Illustrated with nine mounted albumen photographs, including the portrait inset on the front cover, and an engraving. Octavo. In a three-quarter red morocco over marbled paper binding by Stikeman & Co., with decorative gilt stamping, five raised bands, and matching marbled endpapers. The original wrappers are bound in.
