"She is too fond of books, and it has turned her brain" 📚📚 - bibliophiles and literarians unite! I don't read nearly as often as I used to or as I'd like to but there's nothing better than a pretty bookshop and leaving with some new books to devour (or put on the permanent 'to-be-read-later' pile 😂). What is everyone reading at the moment? I've just finished Mary Beards 'Women and Power: A Manifesto' (short but well worth the small investment), and have a couple of others on the go that never seem to get finished! Must get back into it! 📚☕🍰.

🚪Door #10 of our #archivesadvent calendar! 📆 Today’s treasure is one I’ve shown you before (though a while ago) but I was just so pleased with how these macro photos of printer’s waste came out, and it’s such a beautiful item, I can’t help but share them again! This is @uofglasgowasc MS Hamilton BC2-f.6, an incunable which has been wrapped in another incunable (i.e. a very early printed book). The cover consists of a folded incunable leaf - identified, according to the catalogue, by John Lancaster, Emeritus Curator of Special Collections, Amherst College Library, as leaf [447v] extracted from Rainerius de Pisis, Pantheologia (Nuremberg: Anton Koberger, 1477). What’s even more fascinating is that the front flyleaf is also taken from a recycled incunable, which has also been identified as being from the same source as the cover! Some serious early printed ♻️ recycling ♻️ at work here, making this one of the many gems in @uofglibrary’s world class incunable collections. https://www.gla.ac.uk/myglasgow/incunabula/a-zofauthorsa-j/bedapseudo-repertoriumauctoritatumaristotelisetaliorumphilosophorumnurembergca1491/ #incunable #printerswaste #earlyprintedbooks #uofglasgow #uofglibrary #iglibraries #specialcollections #specialcollectionsofinstagram #archives #archivesofinstagram #libraries #librariesofinstagram #bookstagram #manuscriptsofinstagram #rarebooksofinstagram #manuscripts #books #bookhistory #bookart #medieval #medievalmanuscripts #rarebooks #explorearchives #archivesunlocked

One of my favorite editiins of Aesops Fables printed in 1947.  It has readers notes handwritten in some pages and the illustrations are just fantastic.  Non-PC for sure.

The exuberant printer's device used by Sebastián de Cormellas for the works of Louis de Blois printed in Barcelona in 1609.

His printing house is supposed to be the one Don Quixote and Sancho visit in the second part of the novel, thus suggesting that Cormellas could be who printed in 1614 the fake sequel to Cervante's Don Quixote.

Inherited from Hubert Gotard, with whose widow Cormellas got married, the mark depicts two left hands emerging from clouds and holding an anchor with an snake entwined in it. On the top, a heart (cor) surrounded by his initials "SDC", on the bottom an anagram with the initials "DIG" (probably a member of the Gotard family)

I keep saying this over and over but the Russian émigré illustrators are what everyone seems to want from us at the moment. We had a number in the most recent catalogue and all are now sold.  So, we’ve been on the hunt and are delighted to say there are more on their way.

Elisabeth Ivankovsky was born in Moldova but, in the 1930s, when the Russian revolution went sour for so many working in the creative and artistic industries, she upped sticks and moved to Belgium.  There she forged a very successful career as an illustrator and also met, and married, a popular national poet, René Meurant.

Among her best loved lithographic books are those in the Pomme d’Api series. These are tiny, as you can see, bound in paper wrappers, and have gloriously stylised colour pictures throughout. The small size was tailored to infant hands so these ‘40s titles are often destroyed. Luckily these, and quite a few more, remain in beautiful condition to grace our cabinets. I hope we have some time to enjoy them!

Noël, in the bottom row, is the ideal Xmas book and will be featured in detail in the next day or so.

Curzio Malaparte's The Skin, first edition in English, focusing on morality in the ruins of Naples immediately after the allied invasion and occupation; the book was considered so scandalous it was placed on the Vatican's Index Librorum Prohibitorum. Malaparte created his own surname, which is a play on "Bonaparte" (the good side) and instead means the bad or evil side. He has been called "subtle, cynical, evasive, manipulating, unnerving, always astonishing... a supreme artist of the unreliable, both the product and the prophet of a world gone rotten to the core." #books #bookstagram #bookporn #collecting #literature #bibliophile #booknerd #intranslation #rare #rarebooks #booksonhudson #read #readtheworld #bookish #bookcollector #bookshelf #oldbook #italy #naples #ww2 #fascism #italianliterature

Kobo Abe's The Woman in the Dunes, first edition in English, the work that brought Abe international attention, also the basis for the 1964 Japanese New Wave film. Abe has often been compared to Kafka in his surrealism and nightmarish exploration of the predicament of the individual in society. #books #bookstagram #bookporn #collecting #literature #bibliophile #booknerd #intranslation #rare #rarebooks #booksonhudson #read #readtheworld #bookish #bookcollector #bookshelf #oldbook #surrealism #nightmare #japanese #japaneseliterature

Beautiful #botanical drawing from a collection of watercolour and gouache illustrations by Gerardo Cibo. He copied plants in the Roman states, and started collecting plants in the early #16thcentury. Here is an example Asplenium hemonites, a type of #fern, with a #ruin underneath. British Library, Add MS 22333

Finally came across another copy to sell, however it wasn't a cheap find this time! $300 
The Lesser Key of Solomon [Mathers, S. L. MacGregor (translated by), and (edited by) Aleister Crowley]. The Lesser Key of Solomon - GOETIA - The Book of Evil Spirits; Contains 200 diagrams and Seals for Invocation and Convocation of spirits by De Laurence. 
Though there is no mention of Mathers on the title page, these are most often thought to be his translations, though it is rumoured that he transcribed an English manuscript already located in The British Museum.
 In addition, it is evident that Crowley had quite a hand in annotating, editing, and contributing to this volume as well - one only need look at the preface and especially the introductory essay: ‘The Initiated Interpretation of Ceremonial Magic”, which was written at Boleskine House. It is also stated concerning the conjurations at the end of the volume that these have been “rendered into ye Magicall or Angelike Language by our Illustrious and ever-Glorious Frater, ye Wise Perdurabo” (Crowley’s magical motto). The book is actually a pirated version of the edition Crowley first published at Boleskine in 1904, under the title 'The Book of the Goetia of Solomon the King’, and in an edition of 200 copies. De Laurence had a very bad habit of never identifying the dates of later printings, thus all De Laurence copies of this title retain the 1916 date. De Laurence also removed the magic square that Crowley added to the original edition (on the verso of the title page), one which was intended to prevent improper use of the book.

Sometimes referred to as the “Salinger Bootlegs,” The Complete and Uncollected Short Stories of of J. D. Salinger are a rarity indeed. The volumes here contain 22 stories that were originally published in magazines between the years of 1940 and 1965, although they were never officially authorized for book form.
Salinger, best known for the much beloved classic Catcher in the Rye, was obsessively private and actively discouraged publication of these lesser seen works.
Originally published in 1974, but now out of print Volume 1 and 2 (the complete collection) are extremely sought after. But for the moment, you can find them available for purchase by following the link in our profile. This one won’t last long!
