Topaz, UT: The Topaz Times, 1945. Four hundred issues of The Topaz Times; 197 of which are in English and 203 in Japanese; with 47 fragments of various issues, 17 illustrated calendars, and nine pieces of ephemera including high school newspapers from Topaz War Relocation Center, Ram-bler and Topazette. Following two Pre-Issues from September of 1942, the run spans from Vol. II #49 (February 27, 1943) to Vol. X #19 (March 6, 1945).

Description:
[Various Places]: The War Relocation Authority, 1956. A substantial archive of over 300 individual documents, plus a few duplicates, relating to Japanese internment during WWII, forming a very thorough view of the federal agency that directed their imprisonment, The War Relocation Authority. Such a sizeable collection of WRA documents is extremely rare in commerce. All the major facets of the dark, disturbing episode of Japanese internment are represented in this archive: its basic legal and historical outlines, the WRA's publicity and propaganda and its reception in the US, the WRA's groundbreaking use of social sciences in service of repressive American policies, life and death in the camps, and the ending of internment. The essential history of internment can be said to begin with Franklin D. Roosevelt's Executive Order 9102 establishing the War Relocation Authority, included in mimeograph format. Around that time and later an Index-Digest of Opinions by the Office of the Solicitor compiles legal… Read More

London: Leonard Smithers and Co, 1899. Signed Limited First Edition. Near Fine. Signed limited first edition. [xii], 152 pp. Bound in publisher's original pale lavender cloth with gilt spine lettering and decorations by Charles Shannon. Copy number 82 of 100 large paper copies signed by Oscar Wilde with a flourish. Near Fine with subtle sunning, several barely discernible spots to cloth, short bubble to rear cloth.

He was outed as gay (a disgrace in Victorian society) and the play was not published in any form until the present edition, following… Read More

New York / Bogata: Harper & Row, Alfred A. Knopf, Henry Holt, The Limited Editions Club, Grupo Editorial Norma, 2005. First American Edition. Fine/Fine. A fantastic collection of sixteen first editions, all signed by Nobel Laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez and all inscribed by him to the same recipient, Richard Mattie. A painstaking exercise in book collecting, undertaken by the resourceful Mattie over a period spanning from 1997 to 2005 with the assistance of a number of contacts in Mexico who had a close connection to the author by which the signatures were obtained. The collection is accompanied by a 1-inch thick folder, titled by Mattie "The Gabriel Garcia Marquez File 1997-2005", in which he has meticulously documented this nearly decade-long collecting venture, preserving every letter, fax, postal receipt, wire and emails (printed out in full). A remarkable collection. All sixteen books are first American editions, with the exception of Vivir para cotarla which is the true first edition in… Read More
