Description:
A fine first edition of Karl Lagerfeld's award-winning tribute to Chanel's little black jacket with over 100 photographs. This rather beautiful first edition from 2012 features the original collector's slipcase. A brilliant addition to any collection and made all the more poignant with Lagerfeld's passing in 2019. Not ony was Lagerfeld a brilliant designer but he was also a prolific book collector.
Created during the fifties by Mademoiselle Chanel, the jacket has been endlessly reinvented by Karl Lagerfeld in each of his collections since 1983, for the most part, in the fundamental Chanel colour: black.
In the book, you'll find the jacket slipped on by the French singer, Vanessa Paradis; transformed into a headdress for the American actress, Sarah Jessica Parker; or adapted to Alice Dellal's neo-punk look, and much, much more.
First Edition. Pictorial wrappers, black edges, lettered slipcase. Minor wear to the covers. A near fine example.

Description:
This first edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is fresh to the market (unheard of these days) and is the best I have ever seen and certainly the best a collector could hope for.

This is one of 5,150 copies in wrappers, with all the required points of the first impression: Bloomsbury imprint, 10-down-to-1 number line, the list of equipment on p. 53 with "1 wand" appearing twice in the list, and the misprint "Philospher's" on the back cover.

First edition, first impression, paperback issue of the first Harry Potter book. Both paperback and hardback issues of the first impression were published on 26 June 1997. A fine example both internally and externally with none of the usual creasing to the spine.

Description:
A rare opportunity to acquire this historic and original NASA large format chromogenic print of Neptune taken by Voyager 2 on August 20, 1989 at a distance of 4.4 million miles from the planet.

Voyager 2 gave humanity its first close-up of our solar system's eighth planet. Marking the end of the Voyager mission's Grand Tour of the solar system's four giant planets — Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune — that first was also a last: No other spacecraft has visited Neptune since.

The Voyager probes launched in 1977. Together, they visited Saturn and Jupiter and their moons. But then, Voyager 2 had a unique opportunity.

"We had the opportunity to get a close flyby with Voyager 2," said Suzanne Dodd, Voyager Project Manager. "Because of the planetary alignment when the probes launched in 1977, the four giant outer planets were all aligned on the same side of the sun, so we could go from one to the next to the next. It was a really great opportunity."

This allowed the spacecraft to use a gravity… Read More

Published in the same year as the first impression, this first colour illustrated edition (second impression overall) is the first time the world saw Middle-Earth in colour. This impression was printed in December of 1937 in an edition of 2300 copies (423 of which were destroyed at the warehouse of the binder, Key and Whiting, in the bombing of London on November 7th 1940). This example with the connection to the Tolkien family is one of a kind and has been held in the consignee's family by descent since 1938. One does presume that the book was originally given to his uncle by Tolkien himself.
