        Into the Dead Heart, The Cruise of the Avocet, Ooldea and In the Far North-East.

      Adelaide: W.K. Thomas, 1914-, 1917. Duodecimo, four books bound together in contemporary quarter roan with gilt lettering; with a total of 83 photo plates (some folding), with original printed wrappers bound in. An outstanding collection of Australian ornithology and central desert travel narratives by pioneering conservationist and Aboriginal advocate Samuel Albert White (1870-1954).White is remembered as an intrepid traveller of the central Australia and for his collaboration with Gregory Matthews on the definitive ornithology reference The Birds of Australia. Born in Adelaide, White served in South Africa and upon his return participated in several major overland expeditions, including a journey to Alice Springs by camel in 1913 and the Musgrave and Everard ranges in 1914. White later accompanied expeditions to Cooper Creek, the Nullarbor, and the Finke River; he later played a prominent role in the creation of South Australian national parks.As reflected in these books, White sought the companionship of the central desert Aborigines and advocated their welfare in the public arena. In particular, Into the Dead Heart contains significant ethnological description of the desert tribes, including anecdotal descriptions of the author's interactions with individual Aboriginal people. Another work within this bound collection titled On the Flooded Murray River contains a sub-chapter titled "Native Art and Rock Shelters. An old camping ground visited". Here White records an excursion to a Victorian rock art site, complete with a large folding plate comprising images of the cave, its art, and the author's companions Messers. Zeitz and Bellchambers.These four books are originally from the collection of surgeon and South Australian resident Dr. Edward Angas Johnson, and have been inscribed to him by Captain White. The front endpaper bears the bookplate of Adelaide city council alderman Charles R. F. Glover, an assiduous collector of Australiana and ethnological artefacts.Details of the four titles are as follows:Into the Dead Heart. An Ornithological Trip through Central Australia. 1914, 154 pp., 26 full-page photo plates.The Cruise of the Avocet. In Search of Skuas and other Things. [1916], 68pp, 15 full-page photo plates, all ornithological in nature.Ooldea, on the East-West Railway, On the Flooded Murray River. [1917], 88pp., 29 full-page photo plates (three folding).In the Far North-East. A Scientific Expedition. [1917], 144pp., 13 full-page photo plates. Excellent.

        CATHERINE HERSELF [Winifred Herself]

      [CAMBRIDGE, nd. Ca.1917). First Edition. Quarto. WINIFRED HERSELF is actually the working title for "Catherine Herself". Original carbon typescript, ribbon bound into three gatherings: 1-153, 158-337 and 340-527 pp. several endleaves to the second gathering detached, torn and frayed; gaps in collation noted above a consequence of detached leaves now absent; wanting at least one leaf at end; some other creasing and fraying but in all a very good and clean draft of James Hilton's precocious first novel, here still bearing its preliminary working title. According to Kunitz & Haycraft, Hilton wrote this novel when he was a 17 year old undergraduate at Christ's College, Cambridge and it was published in 1920 by T. Fisher Unwin, a year before he graduated. In all probability, apart form the character name change, this typescript represents a text which is at variance from the published form. In spite of the interruptions in collation, this is an important manuscript from the very earliest days of a career that included the later substantial successes. Housed in a gray cloth clamshell with blue morocco spine label gilt.

        [Autograph Lettercard to Elkin Mathews]

      Windlesham, Crowborough, Sussex, postmarked "27 7 17.". One page, on blank side of printed lettercard, in ink, addressed in his hand on verso. Some oddly symmetrical tan discoloration to address side, perhaps from having been mounted, else very good. Doyle writes to Mathews, providing an enthusiastic blurb for a forthcoming volume of poetry by Lt. Ernest Armine Wodehouse, in the form of praise for the specific poem, "Before Ginchy." Doyle writes: "'I have read a great deal of the poetry produced by the war, and I think that I would put Wodehouse's 'Before Ginchy; as certainly equal to, and possibly better than anything else that I have seen' A Conan Doyle. You can use that, if any use." Mathews published Wodehouse's collection, ON LEAVE POEMS AND SONNETS, with a Foreword by Arthur Quiller-Couch, in 1917, and "Beyond Ginchy" was included therein. We are unable to ascertain if Doyle's blurb was utilized to promote it, and it is not referenced in Green & Gibson. Wodehouse, the novelist's older brother, served with the Scots Guard, enlisting in 1914 at the age of 35. He had previously been intimately involved with the Theosophists and served as Krishnamurti's tutor. Wodehouse is the subject of an essay on George Simmer's research blog on the literature of the Great War, where "Beyond Ginchy" receives special notice.

Between 1903 and 1907 he lived in Chicago, depicting Chicago landmarks and scenes, and it was most likely during this period that he also painted Veblen's likeness (Tilman, Thorstein Veblen, John Dewey, C. Wright Mills and the Generic Ends of Life, p.142). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

      London: Egoist Press,, 1917. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to upper board in blind and to spine gilt. Housed in a dark green quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Contents browned, spine cocked and severely sunned. Very good. So-called second edition; the first edition to be printed in the UK. This edition was preceded by the English issue of the Huebsch edition of 1916. With the author's signed presentation inscription to the half title page, "To George and Mary Slocombe James Joyce Paris 7. i . 926"; George Slocombe was an English journalist writing for the American papers. He also wrote a book called The Heart of France - Parisian, provincial & peasant, etc (1934). He reviewed Ulysses when it came out, and he is listed by Joyce as one of the select recipients of a press copy. Joyce's inscription usually appears on the front free endpaper; in this copy, however, that space is occupied by the inscription of the book's first owner, Allan Ross Macdougall, an American in Paris, friend and later biographer of Isadora Duncan. Presentation copies of this printing are rare and examples with such interesting Parisian provenance are exceptional in all regards.
