169 pp, 9 5/8" H. Profusely illustrated in colour and b&w. "(T)ells the story of Britain's longest-lived children's comic character, Rupert Bear. Rupert commenced his existence in the pages of the Daily Express in 1920 and for generations of Britons he has been part of childhood mythology. The central character, apart from the small bear himself, is the late Alfred Bestall, who drew Rupert daily for thirty years. He was interviewed at length, and gave the book his full co-operation. The book assesses Rupert's popularity and includes full descriptions of the associated enterprises, the fan clubs, the annuals, the book reprints, the merchandising and his appearances on television, in the cinema as an animation, and even the notorious piracy in the underground paper, Oz. The evocative illustrations include not only familiar images of Rupert, but also material never before published from the archives of the Daily Express."

Exterior - faint crease down spine, small crease at top corner of front cover, laminate is loose at top of front hinge area, some small faint rub marks on edges of text block and at bottom of rear cover.

222 pp, 8vo, soft cover. Created, Written and Illustrated by Stan Sakai.

While many ronin became bandits or mercenaries, Usagi chose the warrior pilgrimage, travelling the land in search of enlightenment and justice. From struggles against the dark ambitions of evil men to clashes with supernatural beasts, Usagi's journeys lead him to encounters and perils of every description: a graveyard confrontation with inhuman creatures, a young adventure-lover with a naive appetite for violence, a poor village terrorized by a savage Spider Woman...Award-winning creator Stan Sakai has crafted an all-ages adventure of Japan's history, culture, and mythology. Few works of graphic fiction offer - or deliver - as much action, depth, and sheer fun as Stan Sakai's 'Usagi Yojimbo'." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Ext erior - very minor edge wear, spine flat and uncreased. NF

192 pp, 9 7/8" H. Pictorial endpapers, beautifully and profusely illustrated in colour and b&w. "For over twenty-five years Norman Thelwell's cartoons, drawings and landscape paintings have delighted millions of people all over the world. His drawings of sporting pursuits, of human beings at play and of many other countryside subjects are the product of a unique comic genius; the term 'Thelwell pony' has passed into the English language. Now Norman Thelwell has written an account of his life from early childhood to the present. For the first time he opens up his experiences as an artist and humorist, in an informal, accessible and entertaining way. He describes his early love of drawing, the development of his skills in the war, his training at art school, his career as a teacher and a newspaper cartoonist and his subsequent life as a freelance artist. He discusses his work for 'Punch', the development of his ideas, his techniques, the making of his books and his other projects. (This) is also a personal story: of his childhood in Birkenhead; his experiences as a soldier in Britain and India during and after the war; his family; his home life in Hampshire; the people he has met; the houses he has restored. This mixture of personal and professional reminiscence is rich in anecdote and makes a lively and often amusing story. It is accompanied by a wide range of colour and black -and -white illustrations. In addition to the cartoons for which he is famous there are selections from his work as a serious landscape painter and samples from a lifetime of sketchbooks." Tiny white mark on rear board, very minor edge wear. Dust jacket has very minor edge wear, light wrinkling at top of spine and flaps, very minor rubbing, 1" line indentation on spine.
