"Orphan, clock keeper, and thief, Hugo lives in the walls of a busy Paris train station, where his survival depends on secrets and anonymity. But when his world suddenly interlocks -- like the gears of the clocks he keeps -- with an eccentric, bookish girl and a bitter old man who runs a toy booth in the train station, Hugo's undercover life and his most precious secrets are put in jeopardy. A cryptic drawing, a treasured notebook, a stolen key, a mechanical man, and a hidden message from Hugo's dead father form the backbone of this intricate, tender, and spellbinding mystery..."

Indian Painters & White Patrons , Brody, J. J.
5 Brody, J. J. Indian Painters & White Patrons
Albuquerque University of New Mexico 1971 First Edition, First Printing 
Near Fine in a Very Good dustjacket. Fully-bound in ivory cloth. Both the spine and the front board are stamped in red. Quarto. Red endpapers. 238pps., with eight full-color plates, 92 black-and-white illustrations, and two maps. There is a light touch of dustspotting atop the textblock. Also, the original owner's nameplate is neatly affixed to the front pastedown. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. Absolutely no reading wear. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has light rubbing wear to the extremities and the gutters; a 1 1/2' closed tear, with corresponding creases, is at the bottom of the front panel. The original price of $15.00 is intact on the front flap. Overall a very nice copy of this scarce issue.

'...In this major work of criticism in art and social history, Dr. Brody demonstrates that modern Indian painting has been, until 1962, not a truly native expression derived from aboriginal forms but merely a passive response to White paternalism. He deflates the notion that this is a true primitive art form and presents a much needed chronology of the relationship between Indian and White in the revival of an Indian art form in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It has been, according to Dr. Brody, an art produced by Indians for Whites, an invention rather than a revival, with little or no relationship to earlier pictorial modes and functions among the Indians...'

6 Chihuly, Dale Chihuly's Pendletons : And Their Influence on His Work
Seattle, WA, U.S.A. Portland Press, Incorporated 2000 1-57684-015-8 / 9781576840153 First Edition 
Very Good+ in a Very Good+ dustjacket. Fully bound in black cloth. The spine is stamped in yellow and red. Folio. Pictorial endpapers. 253pps., with numerous full-page, full-color photos. Stated First Edition (limited to 15,000 copies). There is a small remainder mark on the bottom of the textblock. Also, the fore-edge of the front board has been bumped in two spots, causing two small abrasions. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. Yet to be read. The dustjacket has two small small chips that correspond with the bumping of the front board; in excellent condition otherwise. A beautiful volume.

"...Twenty-six years ago, Dale Chihuly attended an exhibition of Navajo blankets and was completely captivated. The brilliant colors, bold geometric designs, and intricate weaving of the textiles appealed to his interest in the interplay of strong color and shape. Chihuly later studied the designs, patterns, colors, and origins of trade blankets, recognizing their significance in history and the differences between their machine-made origin and those of the hand-made blankets. Soon after, Chihuly began to create a series of glass cylinders that explore the blankets' beauty -- a pursuit he continued to perfect for twenty years -- while acquiring more than six hundred trade blankets in his private collection.
This artistic enterprise has culminated in this outstanding volume, its images honoring the history of an extraordinary culture and presenting the artist's accomplished interpretations of it. 'Chihuly's Pendletons' features historical photographs, selections from Chihuly's own trade blanket collection, and the distinguished Blanket Cylinders series..."

Cincinnati, OH, U.S.A. North Light Books 1987 0-89134-188-9 / 9780891341888 First Edition SIGNED by the Author
Near Fine in a Very Good+ dustjacket. Blue boards. The spine is stamped in gilt. Quarto. Blue endpapers. 175pps., with numerous illustrations -- many in brilliant full-color. Stated First Printing.

The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has a 1" closed tear at the top of the front panel and a few light edge-crinkles; no chips, soiling, or (other) tears. The original price is intact. SIGNED and inscribed by the author to the original owners -- his 'favorite painter and favorite pilot, with very best regards' -- on the half-title page.

"...Anybody can show you how they handle a painting project, but it takes a highly skilled teacher to show you how you can do it. That's what Tony Couch does in this book -- he shows you how you can paint in watercolor with confidence and ease.
Without using any confusing or intimidating jargon, Couch takes all those difficult watercolor concepts and techniques and makes them visual -- he uncomplicates the painting process at every step. For example, he begins with straightforward advice on just what materials and equipment you'll need so you won't be confused by expensive and unnecessary items. Then he shows you what it took him years to learn about making watercolor paint behave on wet paper -- exactly how to control the paint so it goes only where you want it to go.
If you want to learn how to paint in watercolor -- or how to do it better -- this book is for you. Tony Couch's upbeat instruction, clear diagrams, and inspiring artwork will convince you that YOU CAN DO IT!..."

The Book of the American Indian , Garland, Hamlin
11 Garland, Hamlin The Book of the American Indian
New York Harper & Brothers 1923 Remington, Frederic 
Very Good+ in a Very Good+ dustjacket. Brown boards quarterbound in black cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt; the decorative front panel, black-printed, has a paste-on label of an Indian brave. Quarto. Yellow topstain. 274pps., with numerous illustrations by the artist with three of the plates being in full-color. Early printing: 1923 (the same year of the first edition ) on the title-page, L-X on the copyright page). There is superficial insect damage near the top of the front joint and bumping to the upper tips which has caused the top corner of the textblock to be slightly crimped. Also, a previous owner's name has been neatly penned on the ffep. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. The price-clipped dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, has modest chipping at the extremities and light wear along the top-edge; the Remington paste-on illustration is in fine, colorful condition. A very nice copy -- uncommon in jacket and in so nice a jacket -- for the Remington enthusiast.

"...Hamlin Garland and Frederic Remington enjoyed long years of friendly association with the Indians of the West. Few men living know the Red Men of our plains and mountains better than Hamlin Garland. His stories here are both humorous and dramatic and all have the value of sketches from life. Frederic Remington's pictures, of which three are in color, are a fitting accompaniment for the stories. They are not so much illustrations of the text as an independent and parallel interpretation. The book is a memorial of the Indian by two men who knew and loved him..."

London Taylor and Hessey 1824 First Edition Hard Cover 
Newly restored, this item has been quarterbound in calfskin with brilliantly marbled paper over boards. The spine is gold-tooled as is the red leather spine-label. New endpapers. 195pps., plus 5 pages of advertisements in the back. The text is in good condition and -- consistent with its age -- has the sporadic soiling, thumbing, and tearing; it is, nonetheless, whole and bright with very little in the way of foxing. A couple of pages (only) have notations in the margins and the signature of an early owner (of the same dipped pen) is neatly placed in the top corner of the title-page. A scarce item and, now, with repairs, quite presentable. Hazlitt is widely considered one of the great English critics and essayists. He influenced a good many of his contemporaries. As Keats said of him: his work is like 'a whale's back in a sea of prose.'

Hopi Kachinas , Kennard, Edward A.
16 Kennard, Edward A. Hopi Kachinas
New York Augustin 1938 First Edition, First Printing Earle, Edwin SIGNED by the Author
Very Good in tan cloth. No dustjacket. Quarto. 40 pages of text plus 28 full-page, full-color plates by Edwin Earle. Externally, there are a few small soil-marks, particularly on the rear board. The tips and spine-ends have light rubbing wear. As is common with this title, there is a bit of darkening around the perimeters of the pastedowns; this is due, it would seem, to the glue used in production. The pages of the text are slightly yellowed, though the plates -- on a superior, gloss-coated stock -- are quite bright. All pages are clean; no previous ownership markings. The binding is sound and square with all pages and plates intact. This is an association copy, SIGNED and dedicated by the author to Harry Hoijer, an esteemed professor and anthropologist working in the West and Southwest. Overall, a nice copy of a scarce book.

"...The dances of the Pueblo Indians have attracted visitors from all parts of the world. These dances are the most elaborate and colorful performances still carried on by the Indians of the States, and many white visitors have gone to the Southwest to wonder at these rites of receiving the gods visibly present among mortals and impersonated by them.
The dances are rewarding enough merely as spectacles, but that is only a small part of their significance in Pueblo life. To the Indians themselves they are each one a scene in the drama of the gods and their relation with men, a drama that runs through the whole year and sustains the well-being of the village...

Ivories (The Connoisseur's Library) , Maskell, Alfred
17 Maskell, Alfred Ivories (The Connoisseur's Library)
New York Putnam's 1905 First American Edition Cloth 
Very Good in the publisher's light green cloth. Both the spine and the front board are decoratively stamped in gilt; the front board is stamped, also, in blind. 443pps., with 88 tissue-guarded plates of works in ivory -- from prehistoric times to the nineteenth century. There is modest rubbing wear to the board-edges, with the head of the spine having two small nicks in the cloth. Internally, there is a split in the binding (with much of the webbing disclosed) between the third fep and the half-title page; the hinge is, nonetheless, sound with the webbing all intact. A strip of book-repair cloth has reattached the frontispiece: all other pages are tightly bound. All text and each of the plates are exceptionally clean and bright -- many pages are, in fact, unopened (uncut): it seems that the original owner was primarily concerned with the illustrations, many of which are quite striking. In all, a very nice copy of this intriguing title.

"...The use of ivory as a decorative material has been so universal in the history of civilisation, it is so intimately connected with almost every other substance employed in the production and adornment of beautiful objects, that a close and systematic consideration of its various applications would seem to involve the study of the whole world's art in all ages. Not only would this be the case with regard to that which is, in the strictest sense, sculpture in ivory, but we shall find that even the graphic arts cannot be excluded; for in the decoration of ivory, the subjects carved or engraved upon it, and the practical use to which many of the objects which will come under our notice were destined, will insensibly lead us to consider endless illustrations of the manners and customs of mankind from the earliest periods of which we possess any written account. Nay, more, we shall have to go back to a period in prehistoric ages when it may almost be said that the only records are graphic ones, carved or incised on this very material which is to occupy our attention..."

Exploring the liminal : A Personal Journey Through Southeast Asia, Moore, Tim and Moscowitz, Jan
19 Moore, Tim and Moscowitz, Jan Exploring the liminal : A Personal Journey Through Southeast Asia
North America Stora Enso 2003 Soft Cover 
Fine in a Fine slipcase. Bound in glossy pictorial wrap (pb). 192 glosscoated pages, with numerous full-page, full-color photographs. No dustjacket, as issued. A flawless copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. Yet to be read. The slipcase -- is also as new. The slipcase consists of handmade red and metallic gold paper over boards; this paper was created by Tibetan refugees specifically for this project and no two cases are identical. The paper was made from the daphne bush that grows in the Himalayan Mountain region. A very nicely produced item.

"...What is it you have always dreamed of doing but have yet to do? What life-changing challenge is waiting patiently for you to take it up -- to set aside those thousand and one practical arguments for staying on the safe and familiar path? As a husband and wife design partnership, we feel like the luckiest people in the world, to have the opportunity to do something we love, and to love what we do. Yet it was time to take a risk, to create new possibilities in our professional and personal lives. Over a period of three months we drove, flew, cruised and walked across seven countries: Nepal, Thailand, Myanmar, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and Bali, Indonesia. Along with two small travel bags, we took a 35mm camera, sixty rolls of film, three sketchbooks and four journals. We went in search of the 'liminal,' defined as, 'of or relating to a sensory threshold.' What we found was a swirl of new sights, sounds, smells and tastes, where everything was new and nothing could be taken for granted. We were lured by exotic beauty and what we discovered was so much more." -- from the Introduction.

Very Good in a Good dustjacket. Fully bound in blue cloth. The spine is stamped in dark blue. Tall quarto, x, 227pps., with 4 full-color plates and 16 line-drawings by Rackham.

The Odyssey of Mr. Gissing has become an American classic. It is a sheer delight from cover to cover. Its whimsies sparkle and its satire is never bitter. Arthur Rackham is the one artist whose draughtmanship and scrollery can match the rare wonder of Christopher Morley's story. You will grow very fond of Mr. Gissing as Mr. Morley tells of him and as Mr. Rackham depicts him."
