We will also offer a quantity of new and antique nautical titles, focused on seafaring history and ship modeling. Many of the books in this catalog are special and limited editions by publishers such as The Limited Editions Club and The Roycrofters, and signatures by prominent authors are also offered. Featured artwork includes original pieces, prints and etchings by Norman Ackroyd, Peter Rockwell (son of Norman Rockwell), Ken Westhaver, Frederic Remington and many others.

Antique and rare books in this catalog feature numerous important titles. Among the early examples are the 1594 printing of Heinrich Bunting's "Itinerarium Sacrae Scripturae," William Walton's 1790 writing, "A Narrative of the Captivity and Sufferings of Benjamin Gilbert and His Family," and "The Botanic Garden: A Poem in Two Parts with Philosophical Notes," published in 1807 with copper plate engravings. Highlighted among these early titles is Alvaro Alonso Barba's "Grundlicher Unterricht von den Metallen." Published in 1763, this is the first American imprint on the subjects of mining and geology and this copy retains the original full-page woodcut plate. Other important Americana pieces include the first edition of Francis Parkman's "The California and Oregon Trail," published in1849.

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

Description: Title: Green Hills of AfricaAuthor: Ernest Miller Hemingway - Ernest Miller Hemingway was an American author and journalist. His distinctive writing style, characterized by economy and understatement, strongly influenced 20th-century fiction, as did his life of adventure and his public image. Hemingway produced most of his work between the mid-1920s and the mid-1950s, winning the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954. He published seven novels, six short story collections, and two non-fiction works during his lifetime; a further three novels, four collections of short stories, and three non-fiction works were published posthumously. Many of his works are classics of American literature.Hemingway was born and raised in Oak Park, Illinois. After leaving high school, he worked for a few months as a reporter for The Kansas City Star, before leaving for the Italian front to become an ambulance driver during World War I. In 1918, he was seriously wounded and returned home within the year; his wartime experiences became the basis for his novel "A Farewell to Arms." In 1922, Hemingway married Hadley Richardson, the first of his four wives, and the couple moved to Paris, where he worked as a foreign correspondent. During his time there, he met and was influenced by modernist writers and artists of the 1920s expatriate community known as the "Lost Generation". His first novel, "The Sun Also Rises," was published in 1926.After divorcing Hadley Richardson in 1927, Hemingway married Pauline Pfeiffer; they divorced following Hemingway's return from covering the Spanish Civil War, after which he wrote "For Whom the Bell Tolls." Martha Gellhorn became his third wife in 1940; they separated when he met Mary Welsh in London during World War II. During the war, he was present during the Normandy Landings and the liberation of Paris.Shortly after the publication of "The Old Man and the Sea" in 1952, Hemingway went on safari to Africa, where he was almost killed in a plane crash that left him in pain or ill-health for much of the rest of his life. Hemingway had permanent residences in Key West, Florida, and Cuba during the 1930s and '40s, but in 1959 he moved from Cuba to Ketchum, Idaho, where he committed suicide in the summer of 1961.Publisher: Charles Scribner's SonsCity: New YorkYear: 1935Printing Information: First PrintingBinding Style: HardcoverPagination: 294 pagesWidth: 6.25" Height: 8.5"Book Details: Hemingway's second work of nonfiction, "Green Hills of Africa" is an account of a month on safari he and his wife, Pauline Marie Pfeiffer, took in East Africa during December 1933.

Lot 3006: Elizabeth Keckley BEHIND THE SCENES OR THIRTY YEARS A SLAVE AND FOUR IN THE WHITE HOUSE 1868 First Edition Antique US History

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

Description: Title: Behind the Scenes. Or, Thirty Years a Slave, and Four Years in the White HouseAuthor: Elizabeth Keckley - Elizabeth Hobbs Keckley (sometimes spelled Keckly) was a former slave who became a successful seamstress, civic activist and author in Washington, DC. She was best known as the personal modiste and confidante of Mary Todd Lincoln, the First Lady. Keckley had moved to Washington in 1860 after buying her freedom and that of her son in St. Louis. She created an independent business in the capital based on clients who were the wives of the government elite. Among them were Varina Davis, wife of Jefferson Davis; and Mary Anna Custis Lee, wife of Robert E. Lee.After the American Civil War, Keckley wrote and published an autobiography, "Behind the Scenes Or, Thirty Years a Slave and Four Years in the White House" (1868). It was both a slave narrative and a portrait of the First Family, especially Mary Todd Lincoln, and considered controversial for breaking privacy about them. It was also her claim as a businesswoman to be part of the new mixed-race, educated middle-class that were visible among the leadership of the black community.Keckly's relationship with Mary Todd Lincoln, the President's wife, was notable for its personal quality and intimacy, as well as its endurance over time.Publisher: G.

Lot 3019: William Shakespeare THE TRAGEDY OF KING LEAR 1904 First Edition Antique Decorative Suede Binding Handmade Paper Roycrofters Print Shop

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

Description: Title: The Tragedy of King LearAuthor: William Shakespeare - William Shakespeare was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist. He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon." His surviving works, including some collaborations, consist of about 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.Shakespeare was born and raised in Stratford-upon-Avon. At the age of 18, he married Anne Hathaway, with whom he had three children: Susanna, and twins Hamnet and Judith. Between 1585 and 1592, he began a successful career in London as an actor, writer, and part owner of a playing company called the Lord Chamberlain's Men, later known as the King's Men. He appears to have retired to Stratford around 1613, where he died three years later. Few records of Shakespeare's private life survive, and there has been considerable speculation about such matters as his physical appearance, sexuality, religious beliefs, and whether the works attributed to him were written by others.Shakespeare produced most of his known work between 1589 and 1613. His early plays were mainly comedies and histories, genres he raised to the peak of sophistication and artistry by the end of the 16th century. He then wrote mainly tragedies until about 1608, including "Hamlet", "King Lear," "Othello," and "Macbeth", considered some of the finest works in the English language. In his last phase, he wrote tragicomedies, also known as romances, and collaborated with other playwrights.Many of his plays were published in editions of varying quality and accuracy during his lifetime. In 1623, two of his former theatrical colleagues published the First Folio, a collected edition of his dramatic works that included all but two of the plays now recognized as Shakespeare's.Shakespeare was a respected poet and playwright in his own day, but his reputation did not rise to its present heights until the 19th century. The Romantics, in particular, acclaimed Shakespeare's genius, and the Victorians worshipped Shakespeare with a reverence that George Bernard Shaw called "bardolatry." In the 20th century, his work was repeatedly adopted and rediscovered by new movements in scholarship and performance. His plays remain highly popular today and are constantly studied, performed and reinterpreted in diverse cultural and political contexts throughout the world.Publisher: Roycroft ShopCity: East Aurora, New YorkYear: 1904Printing Information: First EditionBinding Style: HardcoverPagination: 147 pagesWidth: 8.5" Height: 10.75"Book Details: Condition / Notes: Antique volume is bound in original suede spine, with gilt-lettered leather spine label and gray paper-covered boards.

It was compiled with considerable care from the best accessible authorities, and is written generally with impartiality, and in a clear and simple style. Although the Latin in some instances differs from that of the purest models, the work was for a long time a favorite elementary school-book. Its independent value is small, but it sometimes fills a gap left by the more authoritative records. For the early parts of his work, Eutropius depended upon an epitome of Livy; for the later parts, he used the now lost Enmannsche Kaisergeschichte. The Breviarium was enlarged and continued down to the time of Justinian by Paulus Diaconus; the work of the latter was in turn enlarged by Landolfus Sagax (c. 1000), and taken down to the time of the emperor Leo the Armenian (813-820) in the Historia Miscella.Publisher: A.

James Joyce ULYSSES 1925 Early Printing Of Landmark Modernist Novel

Lot 3040: James Joyce ULYSSES 1925 Early Printing Of Landmark Modernist Novel

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

Description: Title: UlyssesAuthor: James Joyce - James Augustine Aloysius Joyce was an Irish novelist and poet, considered to be one of the most influential writers in the modernist avant-garde of the early 20th century. Joyce is best known for "Ulysses" (1922), a landmark work in which the episodes of Homer's Odyssey are paralleled in an array of contrasting literary styles, perhaps most prominently the stream of consciousness technique he perfected. Other major works are the short-story collection "Dubliners" (1914), and the novels "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man" (1916) and "Finnegans Wake" (1939). His complete oeuvre includes three books of poetry, a play, occasional journalism, and his published letters. Joyce was born to a middle class family in Dublin, where he excelled as a student at the Jesuit schools Clongowes and Belvedere, then at University College Dublin. In his early twenties he emigrated permanently to continental Europe, living in Trieste, Paris and Zurich. Though most of his adult life was spent abroad, Joyce's fictional universe does not extend beyond Dublin, and is populated largely by characters who closely resemble family members, enemies and friends from his time there; "Ulysses" in particular is set with precision in the streets and alleyways of the city. Shortly after the publication of "Ulysses" he elucidated this preoccupation somewhat, saying, "For myself, I always write about Dublin, because if I can get to the heart of Dublin I can get to the heart of all the cities of the world. In the particular is contained the universal."Publisher: Shakespeare and CompanyCity: ParisYear: 1925Printing Information: Other - see descriptionBinding Style: HardcoverPagination: 736 pagesWidth: 7" Height: 8.5"Book Details: A master work of modernist literature, Ulysses used the structure of the Homeric Odyssey as a contrast to the lives of the Dublin working class. The entire 732-page work takes place during Dublin's "dailiest day possible," Thursday, 16 June 1904. The bleak lives of the Dublin working class formed a stark contrast to the heroic Odyssey, and Joyce's frank realism was too avant-garde for the cultural police of the day. As Joyce began writing Ulysses in Trieste, he was approached by expatriate American writer Ezra Pound, who worked as foreign editor of an American magazine, The Little Review. Pound sought material for serialization in the magazine, and Joyce agreed to submit installments of Ulysses with Pound as an intermediary. Serial rights were purchased by Little Review financial backer John Quinn, a New York attorney. From the first installment in 1918, censorship issues dogged Ulysses, eventually forcing a halt to its serialization in 1920. Copies of The Little Review were confiscated, and editors Margaret Anderson and Jane Heap were convicted in New York of publishing obscenity. Ulysses was subsequently banned in the U.S. until 1933, but copies often trickled in clandestinely as its suppression and subsequent publicity assured a wider demand for what was originally a relatively obscure avant-garde text.Versions of Ulysses would pass through numerous hands before the first edition of 1922. During this period, Joyce embroidered continuously on the Odyssean theme, with textual discrepancies increasing as he added to various circulating copies. Compounded by unauthorized cuts, bowdlerizations, and pirated versions, Ulysses' convoluted publication history eventually obscured the author's intent: no definitive version of the text exists. The textual complexities have fueled a vast amount of scholarship. Joyce joked that Ulysses should "give Universities something to work on well into the next century." With the 1992 copyright expiration, there has been yet another explosion in Joycean scholarship and controversy. Whatever its other effects, the censorship battle over Ulysses certainly played a significant role in establishing its literary status. Along with the appearance of T.S. Eliot's The Wasteland in 1922, the publication of Ulysses signaled the peak year of modernism, and became the icon of a new literary era.Joyce's own proofreading practices caused much of the confusion surrounding the text. He gave the handwritten manuscripts to various non-professional typists, who produced typed manuscripts with two carbons, each intended for a different individual. Joyce would then continue to revise one manuscript copy while allowing the others to circulate: editing one manuscript and forwarding it to a publisher, then continuing to edit, revise and correct from memory on another copy. Joyce's deteriorating eyesight compounded the difficulties. After the publication of the first edition, Joyce abandoned revision, refusing to make further corrections or to reconcile the various versions of Ulysses.(publication history courtesy of the special exhibits website of the Library of the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee)Condition / Notes: This is a scarce sixth printing of this modernist classic.Antique volume has been rebound in dark green cloth.
