  3. THE DIVINE COMEDY Inferno Purgatorio Paradiso

    Regular Price: $30.00

    Sale Price $14.99

    Dante’s masterpiece of literature is well matched by the peerless art of Gustave Doré. Dante and his guides, Virgil and Beatrice, journey through Hell in an allegory of the passage of the soul through the Afterlife. The illustrations were drawn or painted by Doré, then engraved in either steel or wood. They have rarely been out of print since their first publication in the 1860s. His artwork perfectly complements the movement from the darkness and horror of tormented souls in Hell, through to the light—Paradise Regained. Nicely reproduced. Handsome gilt and silver embossed hardcover. Learn More

    Regular Price: $95.00

    An impressive, king-sized book that was rather expensive originally, but now a true bargain. Merkl explores the influences McCay brought to this genre--including McCay's own Gertie the Dinosaur animated shorts-- the animation in 1933's King Kong, tracing our love of dinosaurs and monster movies down through the decades. Wonderful reproduction, dozens of previously unseen "lost" full color McCay pages from 1937, plus wonderful "Dino" strips direct from proofs.

Lewis. Learn More
  7. ELFIN RHYMES By Norman

    Regular Price: $24.95

    Sale Price $14.95

    This charming children's book, written by an anonymous author known only as "Norman," was first published in 1900 and is now extremely rare. It features 11 rhymes that capture the mysterious and sometimes ridiculous world of goblins, witches and fairies. Naughty imps and elves love to play pranks, tease and make mischief on humans, animals and one another. And while few of these fairy tales have a happy ending, all of them offer the reader a moral lesson of sorts. Each verse is accompanied by several drawings by illustrator Carton Moorepark in either one, two or three simple colors. Learn More

  9. BRITISH POSTERS OF THE SECOND WORLD WAR

    Regular Price: $20.00

    Sale Price $9.95

    One hundred posters, a great many fresh and entirely new to us, from this amazing period. Some proclaimed in bold type that “Victory of the Allies is assured” and featured stalwart British soldiers alongside exaggerated enemy figures. Others, however, hung on the walls of bus and railway stations, town halls, and pubs, called for continued self-sufficiency, urging Britons to raise chickens, conserve and repair, join the Wacs and Wrens. As the threat of espionage became extreme, posters cautioned soldiers and civilians alike against talking about the war: “Furtive Fritz is always listening” warned one; another, “Keep mum―she’s not so dumb.” Learn More
