Audubon's elephant

By: Hart-Davis, Duff

Price: £18.00

Publisher: Weidenfeld & Nicolson: 2003

Seller ID: 2347

ISBN: 0 297 82967 X

Condition: As new

Describes the trials and tribulations of an ornithologist in early 19th century America, who made several trips to Europe in pursuit of his dream: a double elephant folio book (hence the title) illustrating the birds of North America at life size. Today only around 120 copies have survived intact, and they fetch telephone number prices on the rare occasions when one comes up for sale. A little-known aspect of the work is its attention to habitat detail; plant associates of the birds are well illustrated, and often captioned. Audubon was fortunate, after a false start in Edinburgh, to engage th... View more info

In pursuit of publishing

By: Hill, Alan

Price: £8.00

Publisher: Heinemann: 1988

Edition: 1st edition

Seller ID: 3909

ISBN: 0 7195 4434 3

Condition: V.g.

Inscribed by the author. Alan Hill spent his entire career with Heinemann, for whom he launched Heinemann Educational Books. Publishers' autobiographies can be rather grim, but this one is different: Hill has a dry sense of humour and his description of a Japanese massage session on pp. 325 - 6, during which he encountered Max Reinhardt of Bodley Head in a hot bath, is a scream: I emerged feeling twenty years younger (but he doesn't say how Max felt). He also makes a telling comparison between Soviet Russian copyright bureaucrats and British publishers' accountants! xiii, 390 pp. View more info

328 pp. A beautifully illustrated catalogue of the fine collection of antiquarian botany books and herbals in the collections of the Germanisches Nationalmuseum, which despite its name is actually located in Nuremberg, northern Bavaria.
