Featuring Depictions of Gabon, Mozambique, India, Ormus, Moluccas, and China. WITH THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF EARLY 17TH-CENTURY GERMAN HAND-COLORING, HEIGHTENED IN GOLD.

This is how their spouses protected their wives' chastity. The men suffered from jealousy, as such all men were prohibited from visiting women, Icones tells us. Translation of text below engraved image: Title: How the Portuguese women and daughters/ are being carried around in India Text: The Portuguese women and daughters in India are being carried as shown above from two slaves or servants in a sedan chair/ like they are men. They call the sedan chairs Pallamkyn. Although one can see their women very seldom on the streets/ they are being carried to church however/ the Pallamkyn are usually covered with a sheet/ so that you cannot see them underneath it. They are being followed by slaves/ their own maids and servants/ as shown in this illustration. The covered Pallamkyn is shown in this illustration. Size: 11 1/2" x 7 1/2". Seller Inventory # 003397

About this Item: Garry Gross New York, NY 1975 ?, 1975. 16 x 11.5 cm.; staple bound; color; edition size unknown; signed and unnumbered; offset-printed Small artist's book cumulating in two infamous nude photographs of Brooke Shields, then age of 10. One of these images became the basis of Richard Prince's work Spiritual America (1983). "I went back to my apartment on E.12th St. and hurriedly opened the envelope. The small publication was in fact called? Little Women. And in it, contained several images of young girls made up to look older. (All of the girls were around nine, ten and dressed and styled to look around eighteen). Some of them looked like ?tarts.? I didn?t really have much of a reaction paging through the book. I didn?t understand why Gross would think that these kinds of images would help promote his business. (Then again I didn?t know what business Gross was promoting). I turned the pages and there it was on the second to the last page. There was Brooke standing in a tub completely naked with her arms outstretched like she was Jesus on the cross? her boy body oiled and shiny, with just the tinniest bit of make-up on her cheeks and rouge on her lips. The image hit me. It was ?alive.? Where did it come from? Who was its maker? It wasn?t born. It was fully formed. There was no history to the image, no future. Independent and on its own? free from any and all authorship. It was as if the ?look? on Brooke?s face knew secrets I would never begin to understand. She knew. What did she know? It didn?t matter. It was enough to know that this photograph knew everything." -- Richard Prince, from transcription of lecture at ICP, April 2, 2014. Fine. Covers and contents clean and unmarked. This copy singed in gold ink by Gross on back cover. (c) GARRY GROSS 1981 printed in white ink via rubber stamp on back cover. Seller Inventory # 22698

About this Item: Garry Gross, New York, 1976. Soft cover. Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. [16pp] coated card stock stitched in self-covers; 159 x 112 mm booklet. Undated promotional sampler issued as a prospectus from the photographer's studio (256 Fifth Avenue). Comprising staged colour portraits of three young girls (ages 6, 10 & 12) each posed twice, once as a kid & again as an adult. In the case of the last model (Brooke, Age 10) both shots are nude: the first, of a young innocent perched on the edge of an antique tub admiring herself in the mirror (shot from the side); the second, striking a decidedly less demure pose in a grand marble bagnio with brass fittings, the model exposing herself full-length for the camera (with her body turned to the side) while staring unabashedly into the lens. Taken in 1975 for the book Sugar & Spice, Surprising & Sensuous Images of Women [sic] (1976: Playboy Press), the first publication of any of the contentious photos from that shoot appear here. Subsequently the subject of a lawsuit filed by her mother (1981), the entire suite of photos have remained controversial despite the court having ruled against her (1983). A nice copy of a very rare production, only lightly rubbed at edges. Seller Inventory # 002102

About this Item: Printed for The Editor & Elizabeth Dickens, Philadelphia, 1802. Condition: Good. Periodicals. Folios. A set of four weekly issues from June, 1802. (Volume 2, Nos. 22-25). Each weekly issue consists of eight pages, disbound but untrimmed as originally published, and professionally sewn into one set of four consecutive issues. Browning and scattered foxing, with two columns (measuring 3" x 7" and 3" x 2.5") clipped from the last leaf of the first issue (pp. 175-176), else good. Contains the first American appearance of a sensational burlesque version of "Little Red Riding Hood" (pages 173-174). First published anonymously in Tales of Terror (London, 1801), a collection of ballads satirizing the gothic writings of Matthew Gregory "Monk" Lewis, this account of the nursery tale is notably grimmer than the 1812 Brothers Grimm version. The Port Folio was an important Federalist literary magazine founded in Philadelphia in 1801 and edited by Joseph Dennie under the pen name "Oliver Oldschool, Esq." Also included in the June 5th issue are obituary notices for Martha Washington, "widow of the late illustrious general," and Sara Jay, "the amiable and much respected wife of his excellency John Jay.".

Temple of the Fairies: The Yellow Dwarf;: d'Aulnoy, Marie Catherine;

About this Item: Vernor and Hood, London, 1804. Hardcover. Condition: g. First UK edition. 12mo. 296pp. 285, [1]pp. Contemporary three-quarter morocco over maroon peddled cloth, with gold lettering, tooling and ruling on spines. Raised bands. Top edges gilt. Marbled endpapers. Engraved frontispiece in first volume, and engraved title in both volumes. Marvelous collection of 13 fairy tales illustrated with 35 full-page and in-text engravings. Some tales are by Marie Catherine d'Aulnoy (1650/1651-1705), a French writer known for her fairy tales. When she termed her works contes de fées (fairy tales), she originated the term that is now generally used for the genre. Unlike the folk tales of the Grimm Brothers, who were born some 135 years later than d'Aulnoy, she told her stories in a more conversational style, as they might be told in salons. These stories were far from suitable for children ! The other tales are from Charles Perrault and the Arabian Knights (Zipes, "Victorian" XVII). Initials of previous owner and date on half-title page of first volume. Heavy foxing to frontispiece and first few pages of Vol. I. Sporadic foxing throughout. Tight copies in overall good+ condition. Rare English edition. Seller Inventory # 19744

About this Item: PEDEE AIRLIE OREGON POLK COUNTY PACIFIC NORTHWEST, 1933. Condition: Good+. On offer is an interesting archive of two [2] original diaries: a 1933 manuscript Depression Era diary handwritten by a then school age [17?] young woman who lived in the country around the Pedee and Airlie areas of Oregon which is in Polk County Oregon and the same woman in a 1965 diary. (Remarkably little has changed over the 30+ years!) While she does not specify her name anywhere there is one particular clue when she mentions "Grandpa Condron" that will assist local collectors in fleshing out her identity. The diary also offers researchers and historians of the place and time with the interesting perspective of how primitive in many ways the Pacific Northwest. As one online source provides: "Small town similar to Airlie were dotted along the railroad lines of Oregon from the 1880's onto the 1920's. They were comprised of several small merchants, a few modest agriculture or time related mills or enterprises, a standardized railroad station and a post office. The railroad from Monmouth to Airlie was abandoned in 1927 and the community was virtually abandoned during WWII when the surrounding land was incorporated into Camp Adair. Today it is a crossroads best known as the site of the Airlie Winery." Other places mentioned are Bald Mountain, Lewisville, Dallas, Kings Valley and the Cherry Grove Schoolhouse. The diary is a little over 2/3rd full of handwritten entries. About 100 blank days and most of those are in the fall. But this is a great vintage diary showing just how hard this young girl worked on the farm and also what her social life was like living in the country of Oregon in the 1930s. Here are some snippets: 1933 "January 28th, Didn't get up very early. Leo and Jim went to help dig the grave. Theda went over to Aunt Eva's with them. Jim took mamma's quilts to the store. I worked on some back school work but didn't get it done. Mama swept the upstairs. I got my wood in. Jim and Leo went to the store in the evening. They brought mamma's quilts back. The red bed spread had a ribbon on it." "February 28th, Theda and I walked. She stopped at Kearns. The girls and mamma rode in the truck with Jim. Mamma and Theda went to the Holiness meeting in Dallas with Joe. Mamma and the girls saw the baby this morning. I didn't. We walked home tonight. We are to go to prayer meeting with Joe. 22 went in his truck to prayer meeting. 23 came back as his dog followed him. Had a Sunday school meeting." "March 6th, We walked to school. The committee decided to write the principle at Kings Valley to see if they could come to a party March 24. Will write letter tomorrow. We walked home in the rain tonight. We stopped at Freda's. Delsie gave us a tart. She gave us some onions and some butter. Mamma is to make them some bread. Old Lady died. Grandpa Condron gave her to mamma when she was married. Lady was 2 years old then." "April 12th, Eva was down before the boys were done with breakfast. Karen was along. Grace went to school with us. We walked to Bill's, got a ride with him from there. I worked on the puzzle. I finished the puzzle tonight, Indians hunting buffalo. We practiced Easter play on stage at last period. Mr. Bradley took Lyle home after he got hit on the nose with a baseball. Madeline found some Lady Slippers." "April 23rd, Jim took us to S.S. and church. I played. I had 5 in class today. Mr. Fogg preached from Obadiah 17-21. After church we went up above the Cherry Grove Schoolhouse. We ate dinner there and left the car. We walked up to the Haite (?) place and got some daffodils. Grandma went with us. Cliff brought us home. Passed Rex and Beverly going home. Victor and Nettie took Letha to town." "May 12th, I took some of Mrs. Grazon's papers to school for advent event. I almost didn't get my thought copied in time for class. Mr. Brady assigned us poets to write about. Mine are Harriet Monroe and Harold Monroe. We stopped at Freda's. I got the puzzle of Beth's. I went up to Aunt Eva's and got some papers for Endeavor Party. Proff. Seller Inventory # 0001579

About this Item: Printed for The Editor & Elizabeth Dickens, Philadelphia, 1802. Quarto (32cm); printed wrappers, disbound, but untrimmed; pp.[169]-176. Text is toned (though not brittle), mild wear to extremities, with scattered foxing; Very Good+. Important issue of this Federalist newspaper, published by Joseph Dennie and Philadelphia bookseller Asbury Dickens. Notable for the inclusion of 'The Wolf King; or Little Red Riding Hood,' a decidedly grotesque version of the traditional Little Red Riding Hood story told in 26 stanzas. First published in Terror Tales (London: W.Bulmer & Co., 1801) and once attributed to M.G. Lewis, the publication in The Port Folio marks its first appearance in the United States. In comparison to the Brothers Grimm version of 1812, this version lacks the redemptive appearance of the huntsman, and ends with Little Red Riding Hood meeting a gruesome end at the hands of the wolf. "His hungry teeth the wolf king gnash'd, His sparkling eyes with fury flash'd, He'd op'd his jaws all sprent with blood, And fell on small red riding hood. / He tore out bowels one and two, "Little maid, I will eat you!" But when he tore out three and four, The little maid she was no more!" Not the first appearance of Little Red Riding Hood in the United States (OCLC notes three pre-1802 American editions of the traditional version based on Perrault, along with two others), though certainly the first appearance of this particular iteration. Additionally, this issue contains obituaries for Martha Washington and Sarah Jay (wife of John Jay). Uncommon. Seller Inventory # 2274
