2009. Barack Obama made history when he was inaugurated on January 20, 2009, becoming the first African-American president in the history of the United States. The first inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th president of the United States took place on Tuesday, January 20, 2009, at the West Front of the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C. The 56th inauguration, which set a record attendance for any event held in the city, marked the commencement of the first term of Barack Obama as president and Joe Biden as vice president. Based on combined attendance numbers, television viewership, and Internet traffic, it was one of the most-observed events ever by the global audience. In addition to a larger than usual celebrity attendance, the Presidential Inaugural Committee increased its outreach to ordinary citizens to encourage greater participation in inaugural events compared with participation in recent past inaugurations. For the first time, the committee opened the entire length of the National… Read More

New York: Crown Publishers, 2006. First edition, early printing of Obama's second book. Octavo, original boards. Boldly signed by Barack Obama on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Jacket photograph by Deborah Feingold. The Audacity of Hope is Barack Obama's call for a new kind of politics—a politics that builds upon those shared understandings that pull us together as Americans. Lucid in his vision of America's place in the world, refreshingly candid about his family life and his time in the Senate, Obama here sets out his political convictions and inspires us to trust in the dogged optimism that has long defined us and that is our best hope going forward. The Chicago Tribune explained straightforwardly that it is a "political biography that concentrates on the senator's core values."

London: Macmillan and Co., Limited, 1934. First edition of this work by the Irish dramatist and memoirist. Octavo, original cloth. In near fine condition. A committed socialist, dramatist Sean O'Casey was the first Irish playwright to write about the Dublin working classes. O'Casey's first accepted play, The Shadow of a Gunman, was performed at the Abbey Theatre in 1923. This was the beginning of a relationship that was to be fruitful for both theatre and dramatist but which ended in some bitterness. Windfalls contains a collection of verses and three short stories written in an effort to release some of the bitterness that swept into O'Casey when the Abbey Theatre rejected his 1927 four-act Expressionist play about the First World War, The Silver Tassie.

A famous Irish playwright looks back at his early formative years, in Dublin, during the colorful period of Parnell. Johnny Casside's childhood was a tragic one, cut off first by the loss of his father, then by an acute eye infection, which doubtless helped stimulate his imagination and creative faculties. Years of poverty and malnutrition, conflicts between doctor and rector over his schooling, the struggle in school to keep pace with other boys, in spite of bandaged eyes, reprieve, when his mother finally sided with the doctor and removed him. Alternating with his harrowing personal experiences are descriptions of the times, -- processions, a Castle ball, a wake -- all done in lyrical, extravagantly Joycian manner, stream of consciousness style, plus the Rabelasian vernacular of the period.
