Featured among the rare and collectible books are many modern first editions, including a number of author-signed copies. Featured is "A Set of Six" inscribed by author Joseph Conrad to colleague John Charles Tarver. Additionally offered are signed first editions by prominent writers such as Ed McBain, Michael Connelly and Jesse Kellerman, to name a few. Also featured is the 1862 first American edition of Hugo's classic, "Les Miserables," published in five volumes. A number of antique children's books will be sold, including pleasing volumes filled with color chromo-lithographic plates.

This session of nautical history features a quantity of new books and select antique offerings. Many lots offer new copies of titles relating to ship modeling and landmark printings such as David Steel's "Elements et Pratique de l'Architecture Navale," originally published in 1805 and here offered as the 2001 facsimile of the complete folio. Antique items include an author-inscribed copy of William Bainbridge-Hoff's "The Avoidance of Collisions at Sea," printed in 1886 and lots featuring groups of decorative antique bindings.

Also find pleasing ephemera lots along with collectible posters and a unique 1885 sketchbook which includes 12 original works of art. The sketchbook was circulated by a prominent lady of Victorian society who presented the book to several artists, principally in Boston in 1885 and invited them to create an original drawing within. Included are two drawings and a letter, executed by and belonging to celebrated White Mountains artist, Benjamin Champney. Many vintage and antique posters will be offered, ranging from an 1876 broadside to twentieth century examples featuring the work of artists such as Picasso, Miro and Cocteau. Ephemera lots offer themes such as the 1893 Columbian World's Fair, advertising, and various others. Magazines include three original issues of Alfred Stieglitz's "Camera Work Photographic Quarterly."

Lot 8003: Alfred Stieglitz CAMERA WORK PHOTOGRAPHIC QUARTERLY 1914 Issue Number 44

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Title: Camera Work: A Photographic Quarterly Edited and Published by Alfred StieglitzAuthor: uncredited authorEditor: Alfred Stieglitz - Alfred Stieglitz was an American photographer and modern art promoter who was instrumental over his fifty-year career in making photography an accepted art form. In addition to his photography, Stieglitz is known for the New York art galleries that he ran in the early part of the 20th century, where he introduced many avant-garde European artists to the U.S. He was married to painter Georgia O'Keeffe.Publisher: Alfred StieglitzCity: New YorkYear: 1914Printing Information: First EditionBinding Style: Perfect BindingPagination: 60 pages plus advertisementsWidth: 8.5" Height: 12"Book Details: Camera Work was a completely independent magazine of pictorial photography that was meant to carry forth the same artistic standards of the Photo-Secessionist. Stieglitz was determined it would be "the best and most sumptuous of photographic publications", and from the start it lived up to his ideals. The first issue was printed in December 1902, and like all of the subsequent issues it contained beautiful hand-pulled photogravures, critical writings on photography, aesthetics and art, and reviews and commentaries on photographers and exhibitions. While there were many other magazines devoted to photography in the world, Camera Work was "the first photographic journal to be visual in focus." Stieglitz was a perfectionist, and it showed in every aspect of Camera Work. He advanced the art of photogravure printing by demanding unprecedentedly high standards for the prints in Camera Work. The visual quality of the gravures was so high that when a set of prints failed to arrive for a Photo-Secession exhibition in Brussels, a selection of gravures from the magazine was hung instead. Most viewers assumed they were looking at the original photographs. Condition / Notes: Issue Number 44, dated June 1913Antique volume is bound in original stiff gray wrappers with white lettering to front cover. Covers are detached. Text block is intact.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Title: The Novels of Jane Austen in Ten VolumesAuthor: Jane Austen - Jane Austen was an English novelist whose works of romantic fiction, set among the landed gentry, earned her a place as one of the most widely read writers in English literature, her realism and biting social commentary cementing her historical importance among scholars and critics.Austen lived her entire life as part of a close-knit family located on the lower fringes of the English landed gentry. She was educated primarily by her father and older brothers as well as through her own reading. The steadfast support of her family was critical to her development as a professional writer. Her artistic apprenticeship lasted from her teenage years until she was about 35 years old. During this period, she experimented with various literary forms, including the epistolary novel which she tried then abandoned, and wrote and extensively revised three major novels and began a fourth. From 1811 until 1816, with the release of "Sense and Sensibility" (1811), "Pride and Prejudice" (1813), "Mansfield Park" (1814) and "Emma" (1816), she achieved success as a published writer. She wrote two additional novels, "Northanger Abbey" and "Persuasion," both published posthumously in 1818, and began a third, which was eventually titled "Sanditon," but died before completing it.Publisher: Duffield CompanyCity: New YorkYear: 1908-1909Binding Style: HardcoverNumber of Volumes: 10 Complete: YesWidth: 5.25" Height: 7.75"Book Details: Condition / Notes: Volumes are bound in green cloth with stamped gilt lettering to spine and front cover.

Lot 8021: John Dreyfus THE WORK OF JAN VAN KRIMPEN 1952 First Edition Calligraphy Typography

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Title: The Work of Jan van Krimpen: A Record in Honour of His BirthdayAuthor: John DreyfusPublisher: Sylvan PressCity: LondonYear: 1952Printing Information: First EditionBinding Style: HardcoverPagination: xvii/160 pagesWidth: 8" Height: 10.75"Book Details: Jan van Krimpen (12 February 1892 - 20 October 1958) was a Dutch typographer and type designer. He worked for the printing house Koninklijke Joh. Enschedé.Van Krimpen's type designs are elegant book typefaces, originally made for manual printing and the monotype machine. Although a good few have been digitised (Romulus, Haarlemmer, Spectrum), the typefaces are only rarely used in publications. Of special note is the Romulus 'superfamily', consisting of a seriffed font, a cursive, a chancery italic (Cancelleresca Bastarda), a sans-serif, and a Greek in a range of weights. Such an extensive family would have been a first, comparable to today's Scala family. The outbreak of the Second World War disrupted the project before completion. After the war, Van Krimpen was not interested in resuming it.Condition / Notes: Volume is bound in red cloth with stamped gilt lettering to spine and front cover. Book shows light shelfwear. Front hinge is beginning to crack from upper edge. Lightly age-toned pages show no markings.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Title: The Works of the Late Edgar Allan Poe with a Memoir by Rufus Wilmot Griswold and Notices on His Life and Genius by N. P. Willis and J. R. Lowell in Four Volumes. III. The LiteratiAuthor: Edgar Allan Poe - Edgar Allan Poe was an American author, poet, editor and literary critic, considered part of the American Romantic Movement. Best known for his tales of mystery and the macabre, Poe was one of the earliest American practitioners of the short story and is considered the inventor of the detective fiction genre. He is further credited with contributing to the emerging genre of science fiction. He was the first well-known American writer to try to earn a living through writing alone, resulting in a financially difficult life and career.He was born as Edgar Poe in Boston, Massachusetts; he was orphaned young when his mother died shortly after his father abandoned the family. Poe was taken in by John and Frances Allan, of Richmond, Virginia, but they never formally adopted him. He attended the University of Virginia for one semester but left due to lack of money. After enlisting in the Army and later failing as an officer's cadet at West Point, Poe parted ways with the Allans. His publishing career began humbly, with an anonymous collection of poems, "Tamerlane and Other Poems" (1827), credited only to "a Bostonian".Poe switched his focus to prose and spent the next several years working for literary journals and periodicals, becoming known for his own style of literary criticism. His work forced him to move among several cities, including Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York City. In Baltimore in 1835, he married Virginia Clemm, his 13-year-old cousin. In January 1845 Poe published his poem, "The Raven," to instant success. His wife died of tuberculosis two years after its publication. He began planning to produce his own journal, "The Penn" (later renamed "The Stylus"), though he died before it could be produced. On October 7, 1849, at age 40, Poe died in Baltimore; the cause of his death is unknown and has been variously attributed to alcohol, brain congestion, cholera, drugs, heart disease, rabies, suicide, tuberculosis, and other agents.Poe and his works influenced literature in the United States and around the world, as well as in specialized fields, such as cosmology and cryptography. Poe and his work appear throughout popular culture in literature, music, films, and television. A number of his homes are dedicated museums today.Publisher: Blakeman & MasonCity: New YorkYear: 1859Binding Style: HardcoverNumber of Volumes: 1 Complete: NoPagination: iv/607 pagesWidth: 5.5" Height: 7.5"Book Details: Condition / Notes: Antique volume is bound in blind-stamped brown cloth with gilt lettering to spine.

Literary critic Harold Bloom named him as one of the four major American novelists of his time, alongside Don DeLillo, Thomas Pynchon and Philip Roth, and called "Blood Meridian" "the greatest single book since Faulkner's "As I Lay Dying"." In 2010 The Times ranked "The Road" first on its list of the 100 best fiction and non-fiction books of the past 10 years. He is frequently compared by modern reviewers to William Faulkner.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Title: Camera Work: A Photographic Quarterly Edited and Published by Alfred StieglitzAuthor: uncredited authorEditor: Alfred Stieglitz - Alfred Stieglitz was an American photographer and modern art promoter who was instrumental over his fifty-year career in making photography an accepted art form. In addition to his photography, Stieglitz is known for the New York art galleries that he ran in the early part of the 20th century, where he introduced many avant-garde European artists to the U.S. He was married to painter Georgia O'Keeffe.Publisher: Alfred StieglitzCity: New YorkYear: 1904Printing Information: First EditionBinding Style: Perfect BindingPagination: 46 pages plus advertisementsWidth: 8.5" Height: 12"Book Details: Camera Work was a completely independent magazine of pictorial photography that was meant to carry forth the same artistic standards of the Photo-Secessionist. Stieglitz was determined it would be "the best and most sumptuous of photographic publications", and from the start it lived up to his ideals. The first issue was printed in December 1902, and like all of the subsequent issues it contained beautiful hand-pulled photogravures, critical writings on photography, aesthetics and art, and reviews and commentaries on photographers and exhibitions. While there were many other magazines devoted to photography in the world, Camera Work was "the first photographic journal to be visual in focus." Stieglitz was a perfectionist, and it showed in every aspect of Camera Work. He advanced the art of photogravure printing by demanding unprecedentedly high standards for the prints in Camera Work. The visual quality of the gravures was so high that when a set of prints failed to arrive for a Photo-Secession exhibition in Brussels, a selection of gravures from the magazine was hung instead. Most viewers assumed they were looking at the original photographs. Condition / Notes: Antique volume is bound in original stiff gray wrappers with white lettering to front cover.
