Folio, paperbound (stiff blue printed wrappers), [29] pp. Near-Fine, with very slightly rubbed covers. From Introduction: The poetry of Mark Akenside (1721-1770) may not be widely read today, but in the eighteenth century and for much of the nineteenth his work was held in the very highest esteem, and writers as eminent as Wordsworth and Coleridge were considerably indebted to him...The Amherst Akenside holdings were originally mounted in Dyson's own copy of the 1772 Poems, and together they form the largest single collection of his poetic manuscripts in the world...The manuscripts give the pieces [Ode to a Gentleman Whose Mistress Had Married an Old Man and Ode to a Gentleman in Hazard of Falling in Love] in a state quite different from that of the first printed texts...

53 Alden, Chevy. Black Falcon.
Pembroke Pines, Florida: Tri-Pacer Press, 1996. 
Signed & inscribed by the Author. Octavo, slick black boards (hardcover), 257 pp. Fine (As New), in a Fine (As New) dust jacket. From jacket: Black Falcon is a violent flashback to a time when South Florida's nighttime sky was a shadowy palce to be..the early 1980s...the boom years for aerial marijuana smuggling. Drugs were cool...sex was loose...life was easy. Instant wealth was offered to any pilot willing to risk his life flying tramp airfreighters down to Colombia and back. One of those outlaw airmen was Rob Jensen, a physically strong, but emotionally unstable doper pilot who decided to quit the drug trade at the wrong time. With nobody to turn to for help, he entered into a desperate struggle for survival against his distraught emotions, nature's elements and the deadly world of drug running. Follow along as this fast-paced adventure novel takes you from a sleezy Miami bar to a salty Key West tavern, from the cockpit of a drug plane to a clandestine airfield in the mountains of Colombia, from a tropical bahamian cruise aboard a private sailboat to a climactic action-packed ending on Ft. Lauderdale's Venice-like canal system.
