3 ABBOTT, STEVEN. Gore Vidal: A Bibliography, 1940 - 2009.
Oak Knoll Press, New Castle: 2009. First Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book with CD-ROM. 
Gore Vidal, a twentieth-century Renaissance man, was described in the Citation for the 1993 National Book Award as "a masterly, learned, and percipient observer of an unparalleled range of subjects" which he addressed "with an artist's resonant appreciation, a scholar's conscience and the persuasive powers of a great essayist." In 1948, Vidal wrote the groundbreaking novel The City and the Pillar. He is the undisputed master of the historical novel through Creation, Julian, and his American Chronicle series and is equally well-known for his inventive novels, including Myra Breckinridge and Duluth. In 2002, Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace: How We Got To Be So Hated was an international best seller critiquing U.S. foreign policy. Vidal is a powerful voice interpreting and critiquing our world with insight, originality, and scholarship, often resulting in thought-provoking controversy. This bibliography documents all phases of Vidal's ongoing remarkable work. It focuses on Gore Vidal as a writer from 1940 through June, 2009. In two volumes (second on CD), this is the definitive, comprehensive, and descriptive bibliography of his work and is a valuable reference book for libraries, collectors, scholars, booksellers, and Vidalophiles. The book is organized in user-friendly sections, of which the A (Books and Pamphlets), B (Contributions to Books and Pamphlets), and D (Foreign Language Translations of Books) Sections identify, with detailed descriptions, Vidal's books, significant textual variations within a title by comparing different editions of a book, books and pamphlets with contributions by him and foreign translations in more than 30 languages, with full bibliographic citations of the books in French, Italian, and Spanish. More than 400 of his contributions to periodicals are listed and cross-referenced to their reappearances in books, collections, and anthologies. Also included are selected interviews with Vidal. His screenplays for film and television, both original writings and adaptations, are included, as are web postings and podcasts of essays, comments, excerpts, and reviews. The Appendices include a chronology of Vidal's life, a table of essay titles (including title changes), a table of Vidal's small press appearances, a selection of critical works about him and his oeuvre, and a listing of Vidal's work as an actor. More than 650 images of the covers and title pages of a wide selection of Vidal's books are included in grayscale in Volume I, and more than 1400 in color on the accompanying CD-ROM. Through this bibliography, scholars and readers interested in literature, social commentary, sexuality, media, religion, history, politics, and public life have a valuable tool for research on one of the Modern Era's most celebrated authors. Steven Abbott has a master's degree in library science from Simmons College. He first met Gore Vidal when he interviewed him in Boston in 1973. Throughout the years, Abbott has built a definitive Vidal collection that is the foundation of this bibliography. At Vidal's direction, while researching this bibliography, Abbott located the original manuscript of Creation, which was then published as Creation: Restored Edition. Vidal generously authorized Abbott's access to his literary archives, agents, publishers and personal library in Ravello, Italy.

8 ALDERSON, BRIAN. Edward Ardizzone, A Bibliographic Commentary.
Oak Knoll Press, New Castle / The British Library, London: 2003. First Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
When Edward Ardizzone passed away in 1979, he was one of the best-loved artists (and authors) in the English-speaking world. He illustrated more than 200 books and pamphlets, a good number of which he also wrote, as well as designed dust jackets and ephemera for a range of patrons. Brian Alderson first published a checklist of this work in The Private Library in 1972. Since then, with the co-operation of the artist and his family, he has extended and expanded the coverage of the original list, describing for the first time in a full-scale bibliography Ardizzone's books, dust jackets, commercial work and ephemera, with notes on his periodical contributions, war art, prints, posters and bookplates. Appendices reprint articles by Ardizzone himself and detail the history of two favorite titles - Peacock Pie and Peter Pan - and reproduce Gabriel White's memorial tribute to the artist. Includes a four page color section.

9 BAMBACE, TONY. Will H. Bradley: His Work - A Bibliographical Guide.
Oak Knoll Press, New Castle and Thomas G. Boss Fine Books: 1995. First Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Will H. Bradley (1868-1962) is widely regarded as one of the masters of design during the Art Nouveau and Arts & Crafts periods.

The guide includes 261 illustrations, including his designer's marks to help identify his pieces. The guide includes a Book Work section containing three parts: one of 81 definite books of Bradley's own execution, one listing those exhibiting the Bradley stamp but with no confirming documentation, and one listing those using his designs but were probably not produced by him. The remaining sections document magazine covers, advertisements, illustrations, posters, and other works.

18 BRINKS, JOHN DIETER. Vom Ornament Zur Linie: Der Fruhe Insel-verlag 1899-1924 / From Ornament To Line - The Early Publications Of Insel-verlag 1899-1924).
Triton, Berlin: 2000. 3935518005 / 9783935518000 Printed in an edition of 2000 copies. h Hardcover, 2 volume set enclosed in a linen slipcase. Brand new book. 
Volume I of a series of three installments, not yet completed. Praised as "a masterpiece of book production" and "a product of enthusiasts" by critic Wilfried F. Schoeller, the book traces the early 20th-century history of the Insel publishing house. Insel earned its renown by turning book production into an art form as it printed the works of classic authors and gave a new generation of writers, such as Rainer Maria Rilke, their start. The editor, Brinks, reveals Insel's high aesthetic standards through sumptuous illustrations of its work. In all, there are 240 illustrations, seven of which are foldouts, many polychrome with three and four colors, and many with stunning gold print. One splendid example of the high-quality illustrations is the foldout of a series of classics, The Thousand and One Nights and the Decameron, the bindings designed by Marcus Behmer. The colors are so rich and the detail so striking that the reader almost feels he can touch and leaf through the deckled pages of the books shown. Another example depicted is that of Henry van de Velde's designs for the covers of Nietzsche's Also Sprach Zarathustra, as well as sample pages from the edition, both finely detailed with gold print. Text edited by Brinks with seventeen essays contributed by him and twelve other specialists such as Juergen Suess, Marcus Haucke, and Suzanne Buchinger. Essays beautifully printed with wide margins and double-spaced on Gardapat paper in cursive Borgis White Antiqua. Outstanding documentation for the essays at the back of the book, as well as detailed indices for artwork and literary sources. Accompanying the book is a slim briefcase volume containing twelve facsimile resolution papers and eight folder reproductions in their original format. In German.

19 BROMER, DAVID J. Aun Aprendo: A Comprehensive Bibliography Of The Writings Of Aldous Leonard Huxley.
Bromer Booksellers, Boston: 2011. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Aun Aprendo: A Comprehensive Bibliography of the Writings of Aldous Leonard Huxley follows in the long tradition of Huxley bibliographic research, started in 1927 by Percy H. Muir and Bertie van Thal, and continued today in an active community of Huxley scholars. David J. Bromer's new addition to that legacy is the culmination of over twenty years of research, fact-finding, and detective work, and, as a result, it is the most current and comprehensive descriptive bibliography of Aldous Huxley's works ever produced. With over 2,000 novels, essays, short stories, poems, and more, Aun Aprendo identifies many previously unrecorded contributions to books, pamphlets, and periodicals. The bibliography describes the first editions and first appearances of Huxley's works in the English language, unless translated by Huxley himself, and therefore offers a wealth of information for book collectors, scholars, librarians, and interested Huxleyans. Aun Aprendo is an essential tool to the labyrinthine mind of one of the foremost thinkers of the twentieth century and a man who wrote nearly every day of his adult life. It includes 13 full-color, full-page illustrations. Dr. David J. Bromer has been collecting the works of Aldous Huxley for almost fifty years, ever since he attended Huxley's series of lectures at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1961. Dr. Bromer received an Sc.D. from MIT and pursued a career in scientific research for fifteen years before joining his wife, Anne, in antiquarian bookselling. Together, they built Bromer Booksellers, located in Copley Square, Boston since 1980, into a leading rare book business. Dr. Bromer has served as a Trustee of The Associates of the Boston Public Library, is a member of The Society of Printers, and an associate member of The Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America.

20 BROOMFIELD, MICHAEL. His Place For Story: Robinson Jeffers: A Descriptive Bibliography.
Oak Knoll Press, New Castle: 2015. h Hardcover with dustjacket. 8.5 x 11 inches. Brand new book with a CD disk. 
From the mid-1920s through the early 1930s, Robinson Jeffers was ranked by many critics as one of Americas most important living poets. By the end of the 1930s, however, he was widely thought to have little new to say, and his reputation and readership declined. His anger at mankinds careless destruction of natural resources and his indifference to World War II further reduced his following. In recent decades, Jeffers has been rediscovered as an early critic of the 20th centurys offenses against the natural world, and academics and critics again recognize the depth and complexity of his work. In light of this resurgence, it has long frustrated scholars and collectors that no one had carried forward S.S. Albertss 1933 A Bibliography of the Works of Robinson Jeffers. That work provides invaluable material on Jeffers early work and most productive period, but leaves undocumented his output during his remaining 30 years and since his death in 1962, including books, pamphlets, and broadsides issued by such important small presses as those of Ward Ritchie, the Grabhorns, and William Everson. His Place for Story both revisits the years covered by Alberts (correcting errors) and adds full descriptive entries for all known separate Jeffers publications and for selected other publications with Jeffers contributions. Dana Gioia, a poet and critic and former Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts, provides a preface and Tim Hunt, editor of Jeffers Collected Poetry, an afterword. Extensive appendices supply additional information on appearances of Jefferss poetry and prose. Illustrating the text are over 400 images of book covers, jackets, broadsides, and other items, in greyscale in the printed volume and in color on an accompanying CD. This is a guide to Jefferss work that libraries, researchers, and collectors will find indispensible. Michael Broomfield has what is likely the most extensive private collection of Jeffers books and broadsides. This is his second book, following a John Updike bibliography co-authored with Jack De Bellis and published by Oak Knoll in 2007. "A marvelously comprehensive bibliography of Jeffers that reads like a detective novel and makes me want to peek into every item mentioned and immerse myself in his poetry." - Charles Simic
