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.

1 Anton, Prudencia, illustrator. Based on the original by Helen Bannerman El Negrito Sambo. Cuento Tropical
Barcelona "Exclusivas Durve". Union Distribuidora de Ediciones. Wraps Near Fine 
Scarce, with no copies of this shape book version of "Sambo" located on OCLC FirstSearch. N.d., circa 1950. 26 by 16 cm, at tallest and widest. Unpaginated, 12 pp., plus wraps. Each page one half to two thirds filled with colorful illustrations that are quite distinct from the original better known illustrations, and in our view, are less caricature-ish, with Sambo also a somewhat more mature boy. Other than a tiny pinprick-sized, inconspicuous hole on center of front cover, pristine.

2 Various. Ticofilo Cimerio, Anton Maria Borgognini, Francesco Zacchiroli, Isidea Egirena, Francesco Carcano, Duca di Belforte, Gio. Vincenzo Pomarici Poesie all'Eccellenze Loro Il Marchese Anton Giulio Brignole Sale Patrizio Genovese e Anna Maria Pieri Patrizia Sanese
Siena Presso Vincenzo Pazzini Carli e Figli 1783 First Hardcover. (Half patterned paper.) Very Good 
Scarce, with no copies located on OCLC First Search. (Given ambiguity of the title, search terms were broadly "Pazzini Carli" and "Poesie", which should have picked up any copies. We have found copies of a collection of sonnets relating to the same event, but this work, issued in octavo format, is clearly different than the one on offer here.) 4to. 30.5 by 21.5 cm. [10], LXXIII (78) pp. An anthology created in honor of a wedding, the work contains 28 poems, many of which are accompanied by a finely rendered copper engraved illustration, and a few also decorated with lovely tailpiece vignettes. The event being celebrated is the marriage between Anton-Giulio Brignole Sale (patrician of Genoa) and Anna Maria Pieri (patrician of Siena). Title page heavily soiled. Otherwise, quite clean, with linen rich paper stock. Later binding has decorative paper on spine and corners but is otherwise an unadorned thick cardboard and unprepossessing.
