Description:
This is an exceedingly rare book. A Museum Archive claims that it was printed, perhaps in secret, by the CPA or CLP in late 1918 or 1919. Those organizations were driven underground and would not have had the resources to print this book. The book itself is a collection of photographs on 'somewhat glossy, relatively robust, relatively archival paper.' The photographs are famous- I have seen them used in textbooks. There is NO title page. The text is in both Russian and English. The covers are worn, but the pages and photos are in Fine condition. The binding is a tied cord that may be removed to take our individual photographs.

Description:
White paper boards with author's pictorial in delicate watercolor of 'Bear'. Green lettering on front cover and spine. Spine on hardcover on outside has several rips in paper in the hinge area. Otherwise, binding is tight. No marks or defects of inside text. This was Geoffrey Hayes' first published title. This title has been re-issued, but the reprint lacks the delicacy and simplicity of Hayes' watercolors throughout the book. A landmark publication for the time, the work denoted the importance of 'alone time' for children. DJ is in VG condition, with some edge wear to margins, otherwise free of defects, slight small stain on front of DJ (looks like a coffee stain!). See photo. Original price of $4.95 intact. Mylar protected.A beautiful collectible copy.

Description:
James Schmitz is one of my favorite authors of SF. He was the only author that I know of to accurately predict the Internet, and one of the few authors of his era to create strong female protagonists. This story is his only true full length novel. It is a fun, creative piece of work which has stood the test of time. This copy is the third printing of the first edition, by Chilton, the original publisher. Sage green boards, with black lettering on spine. Margins of the hardcover text are age toned and sunfaded a bit. Pages are unmarked and the binding is tight. Former owner's name on inside of front cover. DJ is not price clipped. DJ condition: some chipping to margins and spine, small closed tear repaired with tape on top of front.overall the DJ is Good. The DJ illustration is funny. Just three young women, but the illustrator added a ray gun and and a Bohr Atom, just so that you would know that it was SF, I guess. If you like Schmitz, then you should read 'The Demon Breed' which I… Read More

Description:
In the 1970s, I participated in a study to create a plan for the future of Yosemite National Park. Most of the ideas created through that study were never implemented. But what if they had been? The authors of this book took that idea and created a narrative of a world that could have happened. Set in the then ten year distant 1988, They created a loose narrative, and a careful reading of it makes that world come alive. You will find many ideas in this book that are now commonly seen- electric cars for instance. I would compare it to the much more radical novel Ecotopia. I loved Yosemite, and worked hard on the study documents. This copy is my own, bought when it was published.Soft cover is in very good condition, with some light scuffing to back and front over small creases on front cover. Binding is tight, all pages unmarked. The Illustrations are wonderful and depict a future that I wish had happened.An extremely collectible copy in very good condition.Mylar protected.
