With time on our hands during the Coronavirus lockdown, we are reviewing the prices of some of our older stock and adjusting prices of books to ensure that they are the most attractive offering in the marketplace, as it is a reality of the antiquarian market for books that less expensive and mid-level material the trend has been inexorably downward, to the chagrin of booksellers and to the benefit of collectors.  Consequently, we have slashed prices anywhere between 20 percent and 60 percent of these books we have had listed for five years or more.  So we hope that anyone visiting the site might find something that might have become overpriced but now legitimately qualifies as a bargain.

Fortune.  February 1930.  Volume 1.  Number 1.
2 Fortune. February 1930. Volume 1. Number 1.
New York The Time-Fortune Corp. 1930 First edition Wraps Very Good 
The collectible first issue of "Fortune", with a stunningly opulent lay-out and graphics that transcend the monthly magazine genre and were at the time a defying fillip against the pervasive belt-tightening wrought by the Depression. Folio. 35.5 by 28.5 cm. 184 pp. "Fortune" was Henry Luce's second magazine after "Time", and at the time it was a bold idea to bring out a magazine that covered and celebrated business with the stock market crash a recent memory and the unprecedented contraction of the economy and employment looming with no end in sight. The beauty of the graphics is true of both the articles and the advertisements, which also featured for the time a generous amount of color. The typography also exudes an elegance, and the aesthetic qualities of the issue ensured that readers would not casually toss away their copy after a quick read-through. Moderate wear to the cover, with one to two inch closed tears along the front joint and some light soiling and corner creasing. Within, minor corner creasing to some of the leaves, and a few instances of light soiling. Overall, this is a clean, appealing copy.

Photo Album Recording the Setting up of an East German Grocery and Home Appliance Store
4 Photo Album Recording the Setting up of an East German Grocery and Home Appliance Store
Leatherette. Ribbon tie. Very Good 
N.d., circa 1969. Oblong, 22 by 30 cm. With 110 photographs, mounted one to four per leaf, depicting the setting up of an East German supermarket and home appliances store, from the build-out of raw space to the stocking of the shelves and final touches of display spaces. Included also are photos of presumably the managerial staff conferencing and then shoppers in the newly opened store(s). The photos make no claim to artistic merit; they were almost certainly done matter-of-factly to record the process and then to be buried in a file cabinet kept by the Nomenklatura. In our view, the crudity of the photos is actually part of their virtue to us, as we can trust that they capture things as they more or less really were. And it seems to us that the photos are a true time capsule that brings us back to the dreariness behind the Iron Curtain when the economies were no longer suffering from wartime devastation but their valiant efforts to match the prosperity of the West were heroically pathetic. And thus we see shelves that while not necessarily empty were drab and uninviting to anyone accustomed to Western abundance. The same pronouncement might also be applied to the people caught in the photographs -- women in beehives, men in standard issue suits, but all looking distinctly out of step with the Swinging Sixties. Light wear.
