Once known for his gregariousness and wit, he found himself imprisoned in an inert body, able to communicate only by blinking his left eye. The miracle is that in doing so he was able to compose this stunningly eloquent memoir. In a voice that is by turns wistful and mischievous, angry and sardonic, Bauby gives us a celebration of the liberating power of consciousness. This triumphant book lets us witness an indomitable spirit and share in the pure joy of its own survival. ISBN: 1857027795. Our Book No: 17364. $20 AUD.

Wigton, Leics: Capella / Arcturus Publishing. 239 pp. Paperback trade, very good plus condition, maps, few black & white drawings, minimal edgewear. Between 1450 and 1750, more than 100,000 people - mainly women - in Europe and colonial America were prosecuted for practising harmful magic and worshipping the devil. Tens of thousands were executed, often after being subjected to bestial tortures. Examines this persecution, and the religious hysteria which inspired it, tracing its roots back to the savage suppression of the heretical Waldensian sect by the Catholic Church. With the creation of the Inquisition, and the publication of the book 'Witchfinders' Bible', the craze soon spread across Europe and reached as far as the United States where, despite the infamy of the Salem Witch Trials, it was soon dismissed by a more rational population. Although witch trials continued in Scotland until 1727, Norway until 1760 and Hungary until 1777, the growth of scientific reason gradually gained ground from the witch hunters. ISBN: 1841931845.

125. Columbus, Christopher; Quaritch, Bernard; Kerney, Michael; Fernández-Armesto, Felipe (introduction); Martin Davies, Martin (essay); Posa, Pere (essay); Payne, Anthony (editor) (2006). The Spanish Letter of Columbus: A Facsimile of the Original Edition Published by Bernard Quaritch in 1891 (Facsimile ed). London: Bernard Quaritch. 33 pp. Hardback elephant folio, dustjacket, very good plus condition (in very good plus dustjacket), full-page colour photos centre spread, copy 1. Heavy (1.0 Kg), and extra postage may be requested to destinations outside Australia. (Limited facsimile edition of 500 copies.) Subtitle: "With an Introduction by Felipe Fernández-Armesto and essays by Martin Davies on Pere Posa and the printing of the Spanish Columbus Letter at Barcelona in 1493 and by Anthony Payne & Katherine Spears on Quaritch, the Spanish Columbus Letter, and America 1890–1892. Edited by Anthony Payne." Includes a colour facsimile of the original letter in the centre pages. The version of the Columbus Letter that London bookseller Bernard Quaritch bought in 1890 was the most valuable item of printed Americana to ever appear on the market. No other copy of this, the earliest edition - a folio printed in Spanish at Barcelona in 1493 - is known. Quaritch and his assistant Michael Kerney originally published "The Spanish Letter of Columbus" in 1981 (now reprinted), being the first authoritative study of the document. But, as Felipe Fernández-Armesto recounts in his introduction (new to this reprint), it nearly got dismissed as a forgery, in era of many forgeries. Quaritch's Letter did contain some errors, most of which were the result of assumptions common at the time or deficiencies of knowledge unremedied until later, but did its job effectively. It demonstrated, correctly, that the folio in question was printed at Barcelona in 1493 and that all other known editions of the Columbus Letter followed it. This was a service to his firm and to the Lenox Library (now part of the New York Public Library), which purchased the item. This new edition also includes an account of the printing of the original Spanish Columbus Letter in 1493 and, drawing on materials surviving in the Quaritch Archive, the story of how Quaritch, and his son, Alfred, marketed it in America.

126. Columbus, Christopher; Quaritch, Bernard; Kerney, Michael; Fernández-Armesto, Felipe (introduction); Martin Davies, Martin (essay); Posa, Pere (essay); Payne, Anthony (editor) (2006). The Spanish Letter of Columbus: A Facsimile of the Original Edition Published by Bernard Quaritch in 1891 (Facsimile ed). London: Bernard Quaritch. 33 pp. Hardback elephant folio, dustjacket, very good condition (in very good plus dustjacket), full-page colour photos centre spread, base spine lightly bumped, copy 2. Heavy (1.0 Kg), and extra postage may be requested to destinations outside Australia. (Limited facsimile edition of 500 copies.) Subtitle: "With an Introduction by Felipe Fernández-Armesto and essays by Martin Davies on Pere Posa and the printing of the Spanish Columbus Letter at Barcelona in 1493 and by Anthony Payne & Katherine Spears on Quaritch, the Spanish Columbus Letter, and America 1890–1892. Edited by Anthony Payne." Includes a colour facsimile of the original letter in the centre pages. The version of the Columbus Letter that London bookseller Bernard Quaritch bought in 1890 was the most valuable item of printed Americana to ever appear on the market. No other copy of this, the earliest edition - a folio printed in Spanish at Barcelona in 1493 - is known. Quaritch and his assistant Michael Kerney originally published "The Spanish Letter of Columbus" in 1981 (now reprinted), being the first authoritative study of the document. But, as Felipe Fernández-Armesto recounts in his introduction (new to this reprint), it nearly got dismissed as a forgery, in era of many forgeries. Quaritch's Letter did contain some errors, most of which were the result of assumptions common at the time or deficiencies of knowledge unremedied until later, but did its job effectively. It demonstrated, correctly, that the folio in question was printed at Barcelona in 1493 and that all other known editions of the Columbus Letter followed it. This was a service to his firm and to the Lenox Library (now part of the New York Public Library), which purchased the item. This new edition also includes an account of the printing of the original Spanish Columbus Letter in 1493 and, drawing on materials surviving in the Quaritch Archive, the story of how Quaritch, and his son, Alfred, marketed it in America.

No. 44, the Mysterious Stranger: The Authoritative Text from The Mark Twain Project: Being an Ancient Tale Found in a Jug, and Freely Translated from the Jug (New ed) [Mark Twain Library Series]. Berkeley: University of California Press. 202 pp. Paperback trade, very good condition, bottom corner rear cover little creased, covers little scratched, minor edgewear. This Mark Twain Library text of "No. 44" is a photographic reproduction of the text published in Mark Twain's Mysterious Stranger Manuscripts. Based on boyhood memories of the Mississippi River Valley and the printshops of Hannibal, the story is set in medieval Austria at the dawn of the printing craft. It is a psychic adventure, full of phantasmagoric effects, in which a penniless printer’s apprentice - a youthful mysterious stranger with the curious name 44 - gradually reveals his otherworldly powers and the hidden possibilities of the mind. Ending on a startling note, this surprisingly existential novel reveals a darker side to the author's genius. This book presents for the first time the novel as Mark Twain wrote it. Features expert notes and commentary, and - for the first in the Mark Twain Library edition - a glossary of printer's terms. ISBN: 0520242068. Our Book No: 30563. $30 AUD.
