Alexander Radcliffe trained in law but deserted his studies to become a soldier, reaching the rank of captain before turning to writing bawdy verse in the tradition of the poetic rake established by the 1680 edition of Rochester's Poems on Several Occasions. The title poem here, Radcliffe's best known work, starts with a knock at the door which the author is in bed with a whore. He embarks on a nightmarish low-life ramble through Restoration London, visiting theatres, gambling dens and coffee houses before r ... Read more

London: N.P. 1689, 1689. First and only edition. Small 4to (204x164mm). Title within double-ruled border. Modern marbled wrappers. One or two very minor tears without loss. An excellent copy. Edward Stephens (d. 1706) was a prolific and politically astute pamphleteer who had wholeheartedly supported the Revolution of 1688. Quickly disenchanted, he published this pamphlet critical of William III's government, taking as his text Proverbs 27:5-6: "Open Rebuke is better than secret Love: Faithfull are the Wounds of a Friend; but the Kisses of an enemy are deceitfull". He criticises division in the King's Council, leading to failure in Ireland; the fact that James II's advisors had gone unpunished; and the machinations of those seeking preferment in the Church. ESTC has seven copies British libraries (two in Oxford) and three in the USA (two in California). Wing S5437A

London: Elkin Mathews at the sign of the Bodley Head 1891, 1891. Limited edition, number six of twenty-five copies printed for sale in England on Japanese Vellum. Signed by Walter Crane. 8vo. pp. xiii, 162, [5]. Loose gatherings, unbound in a slipcase of blue card with parchment spine gilt stamped with title, author and date. Thirty-nine illustrations by Crane engraved by Arthur Leverett, Emery Walker and W. Boutall. The gatherings are in fine condition.

Marburg: Marburger Tapetenfabrik J.B. Schaefer & Co, 1972 1972, 1972. Roll of wallpaper comprising 14½ identical, repeated coloured screenprint on silver metallic paper, with full margins. Approx. 8220 x 535 mm (323 ½ x 21 in). This image (also known as Right Hand Woman) was designed by Jones in 1970. It was made as a roll of wallpaper in 1972 by one of the oldest wallpaper factories in Germany in the series X Art Wall Collection. Other artists participating in this extraordinary project included Jean Tinguely, Otmar Alt and Eric Stanton. A single panel sold at Christies in 2008 for £525 and a complete roll would appear to be a scarce item. On its own, this is a striking image. Multiplied fourteen times, it is the stuff of nightmares or dreams. It is impossible to deny that this print is controversial, politically incorrect and sexist. But, whether we like it or not, that is the point for Jones. "It's collateral damage", he said, "I wanted to offend the canons of accepted worth in art. I found the perfect ... Read more

New York: Willis Locker & Owens 1986, 1986. First edition. 8vo. 210pp, illustrated throughout. Fine in red cloth in a fine printed slipcase. This edition comes complete with a small portfolio of six large postcard sized prints - numbered 29/125 (Although whether this refers to the work as a whole or simply the portfolio is unclear). The culture of samizdat was the only way to disseminate any artistic, cultural or political opinion that went against Soviet orthodoxy and this book is an overview of that culture. In fact, the publishers of this work printed this note in the book: "All materials by artists presently living in Russia have been printed without their permission, so that they bear no legal responsibility".
