New York Alfred A. Knopf 1999 0375406492 / 9780375406492 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
290 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). B&w illustrations. "He has been called 'the poet laureate of technology' and a writer who is 'erudite, witty, thoughtful, and accessible'. Now Henry Petroski turns to the subject of books and bookshelves, and wonders whether it was inevitable that books would come to be arranged vertically as they are today on horizontal shelves. As we learn how the ancient scroll became the codex became the volume we are used to, we explore the ways in which the housing of books evolved. Petroski takes us into the pre-Gutenberg world, where books were so scarce they were chained to lecterns for security. He explains how the printing press not only changed the way books were made and shelved, but also increased their availability and transformed book readers into book owners and collectors. He shows us that for a time books were shelved with their spines 'in', and it was not until after the arrival of the modern bookcase that the spines faced 'out'. In delightful digressions, Petroski lets Seneca have his say on 'the evils of book collecting'; examines the famed collection of Samuel Pepys (only three thousand titles: old discarded to make room for new); and discusses bookselling, book buying, and book collecting through the centuries. Richly illustrated and wonderfully written, this is the ultimate book on the book: how it came to be and how we have come to keep it." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, small bump at bottom edge of rear board, tiny bump at bottom corner of boards. Dust jacket has very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds.

A-Z OF STAFFORDSHIRE DOGS: A POTTED HISTORY, Pope, Clive Mason
87 Pope, Clive Mason A-Z OF STAFFORDSHIRE DOGS: A POTTED HISTORY
Woodbridge, Suffolk Antique Collectors' Club 1999 1851492585 / 9781851492589 Reprint Hard Cover Fine Very Good 
168 pp, 8vo (8 1/4" H). Colour photographs. "In the 18th century, artists and potters were not slow to reflect in models the interest of the time in identifying and selectively breeding individual types of dog, and continental and home-based factories started to produce realistic examples of both sporting and pampered dogs. Following Landseer's painting of 1836 of Queen Victoria's favourite dog, the King Charles Spaniel Dash, the potters of Staffordshire were not slow to seize the opportunity to turn Dash into a national icon. Pairs of spaniels were portrayed in clay in enormous quantities, followed soon after by many other breeds. The modellers are usually anonymous, but the simple hand-painted decoration, often done by children, gives each piece an individuality and vitality, and as (this) charming book shows, these dogs have an enduring quality that makes them as endearing today as they were when first made." Very light rubbing, very light edge wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and top edge of rear panel, two tiny dints on front hinge.

313 pp, 9" H. From an edition of 1,700 copies, of which 950 were for sale. B&w photographs, repro-ductions. "Anthony Rota, dealer in antiquarian books and first editions for over half a century, talks of the private collectors and university libraries whose collectiions he has helped to enrich over these years, remembering his colleagues in the firm and in the trade generally. His early training under Bertram Rota, and the history of the firm since the latter's early death, are followed by telling com-mentaries on virtually all aspects of the trade, including runners (scouts), auctions (and auction rings), and the problems of buying privately or in competition. As past president of the Antiquarian Book-sellers' Association, and of the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (of which he is now President of Honour), these lightly written memoirs, may be read as a guide to collectors and dealers alike, or, more simply, for the sheer pleasure of their reading."
