Dusseldorf: Selbstverlag (self-published) 1917, 1917. 226 x 150 mm. pp. [viii], 124. Illustrated with 130 (in fact 131) images mostly showing tatting patterns. Text in German. Original grey/brown paper over boards, spine in brown leather. Upper cover lettered in black and white with tatting illustration attached. Some slight scuffing to lower cover and bumping to foot of spine but overall a very good copy, internally near fine. Tatting seems to involve knotting together pieces of thread to make allegedly eye-like patterns which, together produce moderately pretty but completely useless items of decoration. Indulging in this as a hobby is, it would seem, an example of "demonstrative idleness". Apparently it is popular again. This is a nice copy of a book on an unfathomable subject.

30th Jan '98, 1998. Single sheet letter on tissue paper. A letter written in Moorcock's anarchic manner with short notes and illustrations. The main greeting reads: "Dear Bryan - Paying a few dues and having fun. Thanks for all the great stuff. Sincerely M.M." The letter also contains a coloured pen and ink sketch of a cat-like creature sitting contemplating a townscape with a hot air balloon in the sky below a frame with the words: "A King and City by Michael Moorcock". This book, the sequel to his acclaimed and visionary Mother London, was published in 2000. This drawing therefore pre-dates publication by two years and is perhaps an early version - the author's own vision - of a potential cover. Below the cat is a sketch of Count Zodiac, a recurring Moorcock character. As a P.S. to Moorcock's note to Bryan, he writes "This is my current book". The 'current' book is Tales from the Texas Woods which is also offered here. It is in immaculate condition w ... Read more

He knew he was right

TROLLOPE, Anthony

  • Quantity available: 1
London: Strahan and Company 1869, 1869. First edition. Two volumes. 8vo. (220x140mm). pp. xii, 384; xii, 384. Sixty four Illustrations by Marcus Stone. Half-titles present in both volumes. Original publisher's green cloth decorated in blind to the upper and lower covers with an "X" pattern on which the title and author is stamped in blind. Title and author in gilt to spine. The binding is in generally quite poor condition with cracking to the hinges, wear to the corners and edges and chipping and wear to the head and foot of the spines. It is, however, rare to find this book in its original cloth. The contents are in very good condition with only modest marking. He knew he was right is one of Trollope's darkest and most interesting novels. A study of intense and insane jealousy, it was based on Othello and won the praise of Henry James who described it as an "impressive completeness of misery".

Lynn: Printed and sold by W. Whittingham; R. Baldwin; H. Gardner; W. Lane. MDDCLXXVI [1776], 1776. First edition. 8vo (222x125mm). pp. 4, 412. Folding frontispiece engraving of The View of Great Yarmouth. Red, straight-grained full morocco, spine with five raised bands, compartments elaborately decorated in gilt. Gilt dentelles and marbled endpapers. Some very modest rubbing to extremities and bumping to corners but a lovely near contemporary binding in excellent condition. Some browning internally but a nice clean, crisp copy. Dark blue silk ribbon bookmark. Charles Dickens, who stayed in Great Yarmouth when writing David Copperfield, is said to have described the town as "the finest place in the universe". That must surely be a minority view among even the most loyal of residents but Yarmouth is a handsome town with a long and interesting history as this attractive book makes clear.

Hölderlin's Madness

GASCOYNE, David

  • Quantity available: 1
London: J.M.Dent and Sons Ltd. [1938], 1938. First edition. 4to. 195x133mm. pp. [x], 48. Frontispiece portrait of Hölderlin. Original grey cloth. Dustjacket with tear to foot of spine, about half an inch missing. Other closed tears repaired. Marking and staining to upper cover of dust jacket. Contents in very good condition. Ownership signature of Kathleen Raine on front free endpaper - it is signed "Kathleen" but checking against other examples of her handwriting, it is clearly Raine's. She was a close friend of Gascoyne (initially through the poet Charles Madge who married Raine in 1938, the year of the publication of this collection). Hölderlin's Madness contains an introductory essay followed by 24 poems. These are loose translations of work by Holderlin but rendered into Gascoyne deceptively simple forms.

Blue cloth, lettered in gilt to spine. Tear of c1cm to top of hinge on upper cover and lacking dust jacket but otherwise a very good copy. Introductory essay by Professor Robert Taft. This copy of the Dover Edition of Muybridge's celebrated and exhaustive study of the movement of the human body was owned by Francis Bacon. Like many artists, Bacon was hugely influenced by Muybridge's detailed images of the human figure as it moves and changes its positions while walking, running, jumping or just sitting. Attached by paperclip to the front free endpaper is a note with the address, written in Bacon's hand, "Chez Peppiatt, 14 Rue de Birague, Tel. 887-35-37".
