THE LITTLE MERMAID., Andersen, Hans Christian.  Afterword by Claire Booss.
1 Andersen, Hans Christian. Afterword by Claire Booss. THE LITTLE MERMAID.
Avenel JellyBean Press 1993 0517064952 / 9780517064955 First Printing Hard Cover Near Fine Very Good Charles Santore. 
Unpaginated, 11 1/4" H. Pictorial endpapers, beautifully illustrated in full colour throughout. "This magnificent edition combines the original and authentic story, as it was written by Hans Christian Andersen more than one hundred and fifty years ago, with dazzling illustrations by Charles Santore, in a spectacular vision that is as fresh as it is profoundly moving. Faithful to Andersen's story as it was first published in Denmark in 1837, this classic translation includes all the fascinating episodes in the life of the brave and resourceful child-woman of the sea, who falls in love not only with the handsome prince but also with the idea of becoming a human being. It tells of her courage and steadfastness in pursuing her goals, through pain, hardship, and sacrifice. There have been many translations of this fairy tale, but this edition presents the original story in all its wonder, essentially as it was translated with grace and elegance by Mary Howitt, a correspondent and friend of Andersen, who introduced his work to the English reading public." Book is Near Fine. Dust jacket has very minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, small tear archivally taped at top of rear hinge.

"Marius Barbeau has collected here forty-two jongleur and voyageur songs which he recorded between 1916 and 1925 from folksingers along the St. Lawrence River.

THE MAKING OF THE ENGLISH BIBLE., Bobrick, Benson.
4 Bobrick, Benson. THE MAKING OF THE ENGLISH BIBLE.
Weidenfeld & Nicolson, London, 2001, first British edition. 
376 pp, large 8vo (9 7/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0297607723 "(T)races the story across the Protestant-Catholic divide of the sixteenth century as the struggle to complete a vernacular Bible was fought among competeing factions. As ( the author) tells in his enthralling history it was the culmination of centuries of work by various translators and a committee of scholars who in 1604 were brought together to collaborate on what became known as the King James version. Their t r a n s lation - substantially based on the work of John Wycliffe and William Tyndale and others - shaped English literature and speech for centuries giving us what have become such commonly used expressions as: 'labour of love', 'a thorn in the fle sh ', ' th e root of all evil', 'the fat of the land', 'the sweat of thy brow', 'to cast pearls before swine' and 'the shadow of death' among a host of others. (This book) shows the profound effect the English Bible had on law and society. By giv ing ev ery li terate person access to the sacred text it helped to foster the spirit of inquiry through reading and reflection. Once individuals were free to interpret the word of God according to the light of their own understanding, they began to q uest ion the authority of their inherited institutions, both religious and secular. This led to the reformation within the Church, the rise of constitutional government in England and ultimately the end of the divine right of kings. In Benson Bobr ick's vie w th e English Civil War was fought in the light (and shadow) of such ideas, culminating in the Glorious Revolution of 1688. 'The Making of the English Bible' is about a crucial epoch in the history of Christianity, about the Engli sh lan guage and s ociet y, and about a book that changed the course of human events." Minor indentation on rear board, a few very small bumps (one with tiny tear) at top edge of front board. Dust jacket has minor wrinkling at top of hinges and fl ap-fold s, one tiny tear a rchivally taped, tiny corner crease at top corner of front flap. Very Good/Very Good+

6 Busch, Wilhelm. Edited and annotated by H. Arthur Klein. Translated by H. Arthur Klein and others. MAX AND MORITZ, WITH MANY MORE MISCHIEF-MAKERS MORE OR LESS HUMAN AND APPROXIMATELY ANIMAL.
Dover, New York, 1962. 
216 pp + publisher's catalog, 8vo (8 7/16" H), soft cover. Profusely illustrated with Busch's b&w cartoons. Bilingual text (English/German). "Wilhelm Busch (1832-1908), endowed with an equipotent facility with sketch-pad and rhyming dictionary, c reated during his career some of the most arresting sketches and drollest verses the world has ever seen. Few men since his time have shown the same ability to match simple yet penetrating pictures with rollicking, quotable verse. In his n a t i v e G e rmany he is still by all odds the best-loved creator of illustrated light verse....(Many of his pithy aphorisms have long since become folk sayings among the Germans.) The variety of tone and subject matter is wide: Busch is in tur n ma le vo le nt , j ov ial, sardonic, diabolical and even bloodthirsty as he castigates hypocrisy, stodginess, stupidity, egotism, drunkenness, and other human foibles....The English translations are both ingenious and faithful; in most cases they a re the fi rst En gl ish tr anslations ever made. Those who do not read German may be certain that the original has been translated into English with its spiciness and sense intact. Both the German and the English appear side by side, so that re ade rs o f Ge rman may sa vor Busc h's own delightful rhymes, while those who are learning German will find it an enjoyable way to gain familiarity with the langauge...."

New York W.W. Norton 2009 0393061027 / 9780393061024 4th Printing Hard Cover Fine Very Good+ R. Crumb. 
Unpaginated, 11 1/8" H. "Envisioning the first book of the Bible like no one before him, R. Crumb, the legendary illustrator, retells the story of Genesis in a profoundly honest and deeply moving way. Originally thinking that he would do a takeoff of Adam and Eve, Crumb became so fascinated with the Bible's language, 'a text so great and so strange that it lends itself readily to graphic depictions', that he decided instead to do a literal interpretation assembled primarily from the translations of Robert Alter and the King James Version. Now readers of every persuasion - Crumb fans, comic book lovers, and believers - can gain astonishing new insights from these harrowing, tragic and even juicy stories." Profusely illustrated in b&w comic strip fashion at an "adult" level, with an Introduction and Commentary by Crumb. Dust jacket has some very light edge wrinkling - mainly at top edge.

Columbia University Press, New York, 1982. 
232 pp, large 8vo (9 3/16" H), soft cover. ISBN 0231049870 " 'Among the Flowers', the 'Hua-chien chi', was compiled about 940 by Chao Ch'ung-tso, a minor official at the court of the Later Shu. The majority of the eighteen poets represented in th is anthology were natives of the state of Shu, in what is now Szechuan Province, during this turbulent period. 'Among the Flowers' marks the emergence of a new and subsequently very influential genre in Chinese poetry, the lyric tz'u. For m a l l y , t h e tz'u is a text set to a musical compostion; thematically, the tz'u is a poetry of sensuous appeal. The 'flowers' of the title are the courtesans and singing girls who are the center of interest in this poetic world. Love - in it s ma ny a sp ec t s - is the common subject of the lyrics collected here; love is evoked in a consistent and highly nuanced pattern of imagery."
