O'TOOLE, L.M. [PADDY] AND ANN SHUKMAN (EDS.)
General Semiotics (Russian Poetics in Translation Volume 3)
. Oxford, Holdan Books, 1976,82pp. paperback. Contents: Modelling significance of the concepts "end" and "beginning" in artistic texts / Yu. M. Lotman ; translated by Wendy Rosslyn --Logico-semiotic level of proverbs and sayings: towards a classification of the genre / G. Permyakov ; translated by Doris Bradbury --Stage setting, artistic space and time in the folk theatre / P.G. Bogatyrev ; translated by L.M. O'Toole --On the cosmological origins of early historical descriptions / V.N. Toporov ; translated by Christopher English. In the mid-1970s, with the establishment of the Neo-Formalist Circle in Britain and the publication of a number of international anthologies of and commentaries on the Russian Formalist theorists of the period 1916-1932, it became clear that this important school of literary theory and criticism was only sketchily known to scholars unable to read Russian. The editors, Ann Shukman and Michael O'Toole, published in English ten volumes (80-120pp. each) of the key Formalists: Eikhenbaum, Tynyanov, Shklovsky, Brik, Jakobson, Tomashevsky, Yarkho, Bernstein, Freidenberg, Bogatyrev and Vinogradov on poetry, prose genres, dramatic structure and cinema.Since the Soviet suppression of Formalist theorizing in the early 1930s, it was left to the Bakhtin School of discourse theory and the Prague School of Structuralists to continue the best of their enterprises until the emergence of the Russian Structuralist theorists of the 1960s to 80s, such as Lotman, Zholkovsky, Scheglov, Toporov, Gasparov, Tarlinskaya and Permyakov, who have continued to influence theories of literature, cinema, language and culture worldwide.

PINTER HAROLD AS HAROLD PINTA
Poetry London Volume 6 Number 22 Summer 1951
. London: Editions Poetry, 1951. 40pp. 3 illustrations. Dark green stapled wrappers. Edited by Richard March and Nicholas Moore. Very good copy. Includes the poem "One a Story, Two a Death," which is the third published appearance by Harold Pinter, credited here as Harold Pinta. Other contributors include Herbert Read, Osbert Sitwell, Roy Campbell, D.G. Bridson, William Jay Smith, James Reeves, and Ronald Bottral, and others.
¶ Pinter believed an aunt's erroneous view that the family was Sephardic and had fled the Spanish Inquisition; thus, for his early poems, Pinter used the pseudonym Pinta and at other times used variations such as da Pinto. Later research by Lady Antonia Fraser, Pinter's second wife, revealed the legend to be apocryphal; three of Pinter's grandparents came from Poland and the fourth from Odessa, so the family was Ashkenazic.

SHAKESPEARE, WILLIAM,
The Plays
0. 1825. in Nine Volumes. EIGHT volumes only [of nine], London, William Pickering, Chancery Lane, 1825; approx. 3.1 ins x 1.7 ins; each volume c. 300 pp. with 33 copper-engraved plates, and a few wood-engraved circular vignettes; contemporary maroon morocco, spines panelled in gilt with raised bands, lettered in gilt with the titles of the plays within one of the panels. triple gilt rule to boards, all edges gilt; several plates slightly or marginally embrowned, a few more than the others, text clean; Volume I lacks general title (discarded by the binder); Volume III lacks the final leaf (the last two pages of "A Winter's Tale"), title-page of Vol.IX long ago mended with neat stitching; bindings a little rubbed at extremities, a little darkened, bottom corner of rear board of Volume III scratched; generally very attractive in its miniature morocco binding, though a little used, and internally clean, but missing Volume II as well as the one leaf of Volume III. Spielman 456. "The illustrated edition of the Pickering Shakespeare is rare in itself as only a small number of the sets was issued with the engraved frontispieces". He quotes Sheringham, writing in "The Connoisseur" [Nov. 1902]: "The plates of the Shakespeare in particular, 38 in number, were all lost, and the later copies of course are without them." The plates were engraved after Thomas Stothard - except for that of Puck, which is after Sir Joshua Reynolds' already celebrated painting.Since there are usually four plates in each of our volumes, we guess that our Volume IX, with only three plates, may be short of one plate.

SWIFT, JONATHAN, AND OTHERS,
The Examiners
0. for the Year 1711. To which is prefix'd A Letter to the Examiner. London .. for John Morphew .. and A.Dodd.. 1712; xvi, 306pp. [12 pp.] index, [2 pp.] adverts; 12mo; contemporary panelled calf, spine gilt in compartments with raised bands, red leather lettering-piece; binding used and worn, front hinge split but firmly held on the strings, splits in rear hinge, trace of older tape along inner margin of front paste-down, early name - "Edwart Jones, Bafonwen" at top of rear free endpaper. "The Examiner" included contributions by Swift, who took over the editorship. According to Hawkesworth, in Volume VII of his 1760 edition of Swift's Works, Swift's own contributions were Nos 13 - 44. This volume reprinted the periodical in a handy form for contemporary readers, and provides the modern reader with part of the context of Swift's papers. As the printer writes: "It is conceived, That altho' these Papers were writ for the Public Service, upon Incidents, as they daily happened; yet in them are treated several Subjects, which may be of general and lasting Use. Neither perhaps will Posterity be unwilling to see several Observations made, and Facts related, concerning the late Disposition of Affairs, which they will probably meet nowhere else ..".

THOMSON, JAMES
The Seasons

Interior remains tight and complete. No backstrip. size: 80 x 149 mm. in the original brown paper covered printed boards (corners bumped )
¶ James Thomson (11 September 1700 - 27 August 1748) was a Scottish poet and playwright, known for his masterpiece The Seasons and the lyrics of Rule, Britannia!. He wrote Spring in 1728 and finally Autumn in 1730, when the set of four was published together as The Seasons. During this period he also wrote other poems, such as to the Memory of Sir Isaac Newton, and his first play, The Tragedy of Sophonisba (1729). The latter is best known today for its mention in Samuel Johnson's Lives of the English Poets, where Johnson records that one 'feeble' line of the poem - "O, Sophonisba, Sophonisba, O!" was parodied by the wags of the theatre as, "O, Jemmy Thomson, Jemmy Thomson, O!".

TREVELYAN, HERBERT,,
Snatches from Oblivion. ,
0. 1827. Being the Remains of the Late Herbert Trevelyan Esq. edited by Piers Shafton Gent. London, Hurst, Chance & Co. 1827. xviii, 256pp. with engraved title-page and six plates; contemporary chocolate-coloured diced calf, spine richly gilt, gilt border to boards ("Wilson. 88 Royal Exchange"); the etched plates spotted and embrowned, one gathering (F5/pp. 105-108) detached but present; The "Introductory Sketch" has been misbound before the "Advertisement" and "List of Contents". A very rare collection of poems, stories, and sketches. We assume Plate I is the engraved title-page; Plate V is bound at the beginning as frontispiece. In checking the dates of the the artist, Robert Seymour, (1798-1836 ) we found that this work is attributed in Thieme/Becker's Lexicon of Artists to "Beck"; certainly the author's and ediitor's names appear to be a smokescreen. The binder's ticket on the front pastedown read "Wilson. 88 Royal Exchange. London. Books Maps &c. for exportation". Ramsden, "London Bookbinders" (1956) lists this [John] Wilson at page 151, taking Willson's second business address, from London Directories. In several ways a very rare book.
