Illustrated by Vernon Hill with 16 full-page plates. Folio. Bound with tan cloth spine and green cloth sides with illustrated paper label on upper cover and paper spine label, t.e.g. & "Hill is strongest as a figure draughtsman and his swirling bodies and large wave and plant shapes, make him a classical equivalent of the Beardsley eroticism. In November 1909, The Bodleain, referred to him as 'a youth only just past his teens, his inventions have the eternal quality of beauty, his imagination is so rich so astonishing in its originality, and he is beside so gifted with rare humour, that his work defies comparison with anything know to us...'" (Houfe. Dictionary of British Book Illustrators and Caricaturists 1800-1914. p. 340.) John Lane hailed Hill as "'the most striking, [illustrator] etc., etc.' since Beardsley." (Lambert. The Bodley Head 1887-1987. p. 178).& Fantastic Illustration and Design in Britain #113; Peppin. Fantasy, The Golden Age of Fantastic Illustration p. 157-159. & The New Inferno with Hill's illustrations is rare.

        A Brief Historical Memoir of Delhi and Guide to Points of Interest Together With the Official Programme in Detail of the Imperial Coronation Durbar of 1911, With Sketch Maps, Plans, and Illustrations

      Office of the Superintendent, Government Printing, Bengal [1911], Calcutta - Original blind- and gilt-stamped soft morocco with gold lettering on spine. Splendid mounted photographic portraits of the King and Queen of England after the title (size of each portrait 5 3/4" x 3 1/2"). Decorative initials. The Delhi Durbar meaning "Court of Delhi", was a mass assembly at Coronation Park, Delhi, India, to mark the coronation of a King and Queen of the United Kingdom. Also known as the Imperial Durbar, it was held three times, in 1877, 1903, and 1911, at the height of the British Empire. This work, published in anticipation of the 1911 Durbar (which was the only one attended by the sovereign, who was George V) contains several seating plans and charts, and is splendidly illustrated with16 tipped in b/w platinum prints by Johnston & Hoffmann studios, and others (average size of images 6" x 4 1/2" when one image per plate, or 6" x 2" when 2 or 3 images per plate). Starting at page 133 is a list of Commanders, Staffs, and Troops at the Durbar. This copy belonged to W. F. Reynolds who was attending the ceremony as a guest, as indicated in his sporadic annotations in pencil. Minor shelf wear. Binding and interior in overall very good condition.

        La Comedia del divino Dante Alighieri da Firenze con la esposizione di Giuseppe Landino Passerini da Cortona.

      In Firenze. Apresso L. S. Olschki, 1911. 3 p.l., [v]-xl, [1], 524 p., 1 l.; 43.5 cm. Reproduces 101 facsimiles of woodcuts in the Venice, 1491 edition. A magnificent effort of book production to celebrate the 700th anniversary of the Divine Comedy. Gabriele d'Annunzio was to have contributed a life of Dante. He never completed it, so his 'Vita' was replaced by an earlier, already published essay on Dante. Everything else is first-rate. The handmade paper was commissioned for this edition, which was printed in 300 copies. (this is number 41). The binding is leather over wooden boards with iron clasps, bosses, and a bust of Dante (in six copies, one of which is in the Pierpont Morgan Library, the clasps, bosses, etc. are of silver). In this copy the previous owner, a Dante scholar, began annotating on the title-page, the beautiful title-page. He made two notes, then came to his senses (or someone beat him senseless). The NUC (132: 646: ND0037108) records five copies: DLC, CU, FU, DCU, MH. We have had a clamshell box made for it by James DiMarcantonio, Hope Bindery & Box Company. The condition is generally excellent; there is some scuffing, a few of the nails for the ironwork have come out. We had the leather of the clasps replaced. One of the great editions of Dante. OB1000.

        The Army of God Knows Where

      Chicago: The American Asphaltum & Rubber Co.. [1911]. First. First edition. One sheet folded and ribbon tied to make four pages. Very light pencil name, light edgewear, still a just about fine copy of this attractively printed pamphlet. The only known copy of one of Damon Runyon's first separate publications, a poem printed by an asphalt company, and dedicated to "Our Civil Engineers." The poem originally appeared in Bohemian Magazine in Boston, probably in 1910. A report of this separate publication was printed in Volume XLII, the January-June 1912 Municipal Engineering Index. The poem is also reprinted in Runyon's acknowledged first book, The Tents of Trouble, a volume of poems in flexible boards published in 1911. His best known book, Guys and Dolls, was not published until 1931. Whether this volume precedes the poem's appearance in The Tents of Trouble (making this his first book), or follows that but precedes his next publication, Rhymes of the Firing Line (making this his second book), we are unable to determine. But we can locate no additional copies of this pamphlet and it is clearly rare. .

Paramount among them is the tale of the suicide-haunted stateroom, 'The Upper Berth,' one of the most reprinted of all ghost stories. Others are the vampire story 'For the Blood is Life,' and ghost tales 'The Screaming Skull' and 'The Dead Smile.'
