  • Signed Jorge Luis Borges First Edition 1952 Otras Inquisiciones 1937-1952

    Softcover. 8vo. Sur S.R.L. 1952. 226 pgs. First Edition/First Printing. Signed with a lengthy gift inscription by Jorge Luis Borges to David James on the FFEP. Wrappers worn. Wrappers chipped and worn along the edges of the wrappers and the spine of the DJ. Book is free of ownership marks. Text is clean and free of marks. Binding tight and solid. 39 essays representing a broad miscellany of Borges tastes and preoccupations selected from 15 years of critical writing mostly for publication in La Nación: poets of the Spanish and English classical traditions, but also including abstract ompositions such as ‘El espejo de los enigmas’ and ‘Nueva refutación del tiempo’. Considered a seminal work together with Ficciones and El Aleph.

  • Andy Warhol Dustjacket 1952 Love is a Pie Maude Hutchins Hardcover w/DJ

    Hardcover. 8vo. New Directions. 1952. 223 pgs. Dustjacket (a rare early example of Andy Warhol's graphic design art). DJ has light shelf-wear present to the DJ extremities. No ownership marks present. Text is clean and free of marks, binding tight and solid, boards very lightly rubbed and worn. As a young artist in New York, Warhol created just a few such cover designs. The covers constitute some of Warhol's most underrated work and were made long before the establishment of The Factory; nevertheless, they exemplify many of the innovative techniques for which Warhol came to be known, such as applying ink to paper and then blotting it while still wet. It is also appropriate that these jacket designs appear on books by four authors who were, in their day, themselves provocative.

  • First Edition 1952 The Old Man and The Sea Ernest Hemingway Hardcover w/DJ

    Hardcover. 8vo. Charles Scribner's Sons. 1952. 140 pgs. First Edition/First Printing. DJ has shelf-wear present to the DJ extremities (spine ends chipped and worn, scuff present along the spine). Previous owner's name present to the FFEP. Text is clean and free of marks, binding tight and solid, boards very lightly rubbed and worn. The Old Man and the Sea is one of Hemingway's most enduring works. Told in language of great simplicity and power, it is the story of an old Cuban fisherman, down on his luck, and his supreme ordeal -- a relentless, agonizing battle with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream. Here Hemingway recasts, in strikingly contemporary style, the classic theme of courage in the face of defeat, of personal triumph won from loss.

  • Shirley, A Tale (2 Volume Copyright Edition): Currer Bell (Charlotte Bronte)

    Shirley is an 1849 social novel by the English novelist Charlotte Brontë. It was Brontë's second published novel after Jane Eyre (originally published under Brontë's pseudonym Currer Bell). The novel is set in Yorkshire in the period 1811–12, during the industrial depression resulting from the Napoleonic Wars and the War of 1812. The novel is set against a backdrop of the Luddite uprisings in the Yorkshire textile industry. The novel's popularity led to Shirley's becoming a woman's name. The title character was given the name that her father had intended to give a son. Before the publication of the novel, Shirley was an uncommon – but distinctly male – name and would have been an unusual name for a woman. Today it is regarded as a distinctly female name and an uncommon male name.

  • First Edition 1969 The Life and Loves of Mr Jiveass Nigger Cecil Brown HC w/DJ

    Hardcover. 8vo. Farrar Straus & Giroux. 1969. 213 pgs. First Edition/First Printing. Signed by Cecil Brown on the FFEP. DJ has light shelf-wear present to the DJ extremities. No ownership marks present. Text is clean and free of marks, binding tight and solid, boards clean with no wear present. “If you're black you don't need to get at anything. You're already there. You can live right out of your insides.” So says the antihero of this legendary novel that reimagines the Bible’s prodigal son as a young black man in post-Civil Rights-era America. George Washington—one of his many aliases—is a classic trickster figure, a blend of con artist, deep thinker, and willing object of white women’s sexual fantasies.
