Title page illustration was precisely cut and glued to a new page. Some of the page edges show a professional repair.Ariosto's great cantos inspired by the crusades are considered his crowning achievement. First published in 1516, this edition was published after author's death, who died in 1533. The Orlando blocks were cut for this quarto edition and follow Niccolo Zoppino's idea of providing one illustration to each canto but going far beyond the Zoppino blocks in skill and cutting. These are the first full page illustrations for Ariosto. Valgrisi's artist often varied from Giolito'sin his choice of the principal scene for illustration and relegated the Giolito subjects to his background. Valgrisi's blocks are printed within borders with figures and grotesques. There are two different border designs for the illustrations and two smaller cherub borders for the heading(argomento) to each canto. End of cantos followed by annotations, also dated 1556 and table of principle aspects of the cantos.

Signed by author on title page without inscription. Second edition. Signed sticker on front of dust jacket. DJ has scratch in top right corner. Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Michael Chabon has transported readers to wonderful places: to New York City during the Golden Age of comic books (The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay); to an imaginary Jewish homeland in Sitka, Alaska (The Yiddish Policemen's Union); to discover The Mysteries of Pittsburgh. Now he takes us to Telegraph Avenue in a big-hearted and exhilarating novel that explores the profoundly intertwined lives of two Oakland, California families, one black and one white. In Telegraph Avenue, Chabon lovingly creates a world grounded in pop culture, Kung Fu, 70s Blaxploitation films, vinyl LPs, jazz and soul music and delivers a bravura epic of friendship, race, and secret histories.- See more at: http://www.hillcountrybooks.com/?page=shop/flypage&product_id=3230#sthash.y5MhXQ2O.dpuf

First edition. Book is rubbed, bumped corners, Cloth missing from spine at top and bottom (areas are about 1" square). Gift inscription on endpaper. Some small stains but overall clean and binding is tight. The Wandering Jew is a figure from medieval Christian folklore whose legend began to spread in Europe in the thirteenth century. The original legend concerns a Jew who taunted Jesus on the way to the Crucifixion and was then cursed to walk the earth until the Second Coming. The exact nature of the wanderer's indiscretion varies in different versions of the tale, as do aspects of his character; sometimes he is said to be a shoemaker or other tradesman, sometimes he is the doorman at Pontius Pilate's estate. George Croly's Salathiel, which appeared anonymously in 1828, treated the subject of The Wandering Jew in an imaginative form, it was reprinted under this title

Cambridge University Press 1995-05-26 0521401798 / 9780521401791 Hardcover Used: Like New Very Good Hardcover 
Unread. Same split in dust jacket on fold of top corner. Inside pages clean and binding is tight. 489 pages with colour and b/w illustrations. Systematically explores the history, structure, variety, and range of uses of the English language worldwide. English is arguably the nearest thing we have to a world language, and yet it is a language with a wealth of varieties, dialects, and traditions, all developing in different ways and at different speeds. This book is a superbly written and illustrated exploration of the history, structure, and use of English throughout the world. World-renowned linguist and author, David Crystal, explores the many facets and varieties of the English language, bringing life to this large and complex subject. He begins with the origins of English in Anglo-Saxon times and follows the growth of the language to the present. Every major English-speaking country is included, and the book abounds with insights into how English evolved and how it works. The author pays particular attention to the use of language in literature and how it permeates humor. He allows language to speak for itself by using quotations, photographs, newspaper clippings, poems, advertisements, cartoons, and many other types of illustrative material that vividly complement his narrative. Author Crystal systematically covers the structural features of English, and includes a complete description of grammar, a summary of pronunciation and writing systems, and a thorough treatment of the size and complexity of vocabulary. He explains technical aspects in simple and accessible terms and includes a glossary to assist the reader with unclear language terminology. Highly visual with striking color illustrations, panels and boxed features throughout, this book is fascinating reading for the widest possible audience.
