Moses, who was the subject of Robert Caro's 1974 Pulitzer Prize-winning biography, THE POWER BROKER, was known as the "master builder" of mid-20th century New York City and environs; and though Caro's biography dealt a blow to his reputation, Moses' projects were considered by many to be necessary for the region's development after the Great Depression [Wikipedia]. Large octavo, full blue pebbled-leather boards embellished in gilt on front and stamped in gilt on spine which is blocked in red; top edge gilt; marbled endpapers. Illustrated with black-and-white photographs. Fine in original though worn acetate which we will replace or cover with fresh mylar upon request.

THE EYE. Vladimir Nabokov. THE EYE.
New York: Phaedra, 1965. First edition, so stated. We believe this to be the first issue/state with publisher's address on copyright page and dust jacket printed on white laid uncoated paper with Trident Press mentioned at bottom of back flap. Although Juliar does not assign a priority to the two issues, we believe it would be first as it matches an advance copy we had in stock. The book is fine and bright in the white dust jacket showing a little aging with one tiny closed tear at bottom corner. Publisher's address on copyright page, presumably making this a first issue, in that we have an uncorrected proof with the address on the copyright page also (copies noted without the address are presumably later issues). Name and address on front endpaper, otherwise fine in white dust jacket with a little darkening around edges.
