        Sabatini, Rafael: Three ALS (Autograph Letters Signed)

      Battersea and Cardiganshire 1921 - Battersea and Cardiganshire, Great Britain, 1921 and 1922. Standard letter folds, minor age discoloration and peripheral wear, else Very Good Plus. Three original ALS by Sabatini - author of such landmark masterpieces as Scaramouche, Captain Blood, The Sea-Hawk, Fortune Fool, Saint Martin's Summer and a lengthy list of other titles. Sabatini was just beginning earning to earn international renown for his lush, textured prose and swashbuckling, romantic plots when he wrote these letters. Two were written in 1921 - the year of publication of Scaramouche, considered by many to be his most brilliant work. The other was written in 1922, the year of publication of Captain Blood. Those two titles remain today the most valuable Sabatini first editions. That his life was becoming hectic in those years at the height of his genius is evidenced by these letters: hard to read, they nonetheless all express regrets for his being unable to attend one function or another.

        Alice Adams

      Doubleday 1921 - First Edition, First Printing. This scarce dustjacket is seldom offered on the market and is quite rare in any condition. The bad news is that this copy has been poorly restored by an unprofessional who didn't know what they were doing. Not only are pieces missing from the majority of the dustjacket, but the remaining original parts of the dustjacket have been glued together on a photo copy of the original dustjacket. The good news is the book is a true first edition. The binding is tight, with light wear to the edges. Most pulitzer collections lack this title so this is a filler copy. Trades and offers welcomed.

        A Gentleman of Leisure

      Herbert Jenkins 1921 - London 1921 blue cloth 6 titles at front F/NF. The book is square ,no inscriptions, rubbing ,stains or foxing. The paper is cheap post war which is toasted to a light brown ,two pages have small area of brown discolouration, approx 2mm .The paper was so cheap that it discoloured very easily .A lot of these early titles were read when people smoked or ate biscuits so its rare to find a copy in this condition . The wrapper is the second issue ,identical to the first except rear panel has green border not red ,Malcolm Sage has no price as against the first which states 7/6 and the Rain Girl is 2/6 instead of 6/- .The wrapper has two small chips on front panel and short closed tears ,no soiling, the apparent soiling on the front panel is caused by slight ripple shadow .An interesting item,as have only recently become aware there was a second issue. I believe that this title is far rarer than Love among the Chickens which turns up fairly regularly. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        One Thousand Sport Stories

      (The Spink Sport Stories Co.), (Chicago) 1921 - First edition. Three volumes. Brown cloth gilt (we have also seen sets in red cloth gilt). A bit of rubbing to a few spots on the bottom of the boards, very light general wear, an otherwise tight, near fine set. Stories about a number of sports by Spink, one of the leading sportswriters of his day and after whom the sportswriters' wing of the Baseball Hall of Fame is named. For what its worth, sets in the brown cloth seem scarcer than those in red. Complete sets are scarce, especially in this condition. See this book in 3D on our site.

Deckelillustr. =Dietrichs Münchener Künstler-Bilderbücher. Buch 8. - Bilderwelt im Kinderbuch 476: "Das in München entstandene, ungewöhnlich farbintensive Bilderbuch des Wieners Hanns Pallar (1886-1971) verrät den Einfluss Gustav Klimts sowie den von Pellars Lehrern Lefler und Stuck. Nach einem Besuch in Versailles ersann Pellar die phantastisch-historischen Szenen, zu denen Fritz von Ostini seine Märchenerzählung konstruierte. Die sorgfältig gedruckten Steindruckbilder in 12 Farben, darunter verschwenderisch viel Gold, bilden in ihrem komplizierten, flimmernden Tonreichtum das Gegenteil zur Formenklarheit der flächenkünstlerischen Bestrebungen des Jugendstils." - (Einband fleckig. Rücken und Vorsätze ffachgerecht restauriert. Name auf Titel). - Innen sauber. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Archways of Life

      New York: Moffat, Yard and Company. 1921. First. First edition. Papercovered boards with printed label. Small label of the Churchill Book and Print Shop in Los Angeles, erosion on the spine, sunning and corners of the board rubbed, a good copy. Poetry by the remarkable Cuban-American lesbian poet, playwright, and socialite reputed to have conducted lesbian affairs with Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, Alla Nazimova, Eva Le Gallienne, Isadora Duncan, Katharine Cornell, and Maude Adams, among others. A very amusing copy. Mabel Normand&#39;s copy with her bookplate, and Inscribed by her to herself: "For &#39;Mayme&#39; with love from her friend with all the word friendship means. Mabel." Additionally Normand has Signed her name "Mabel" at 19 different poems that apparently appealed to her and at one other poem as "Mayme." Additionally she has made comments at a couple of poems (one reads "I love this"). There is also a later, apparently unrelated ownership signature. Normand was a fascinating character in her own right, a silent film star, comedienne, and apparent hedonist who lead a colorful life until her death at 37. She carried on a long affair with Mack Sennett, helped foster the career of Charlie Chaplin, wrote and directed many of her own films, was entangled in the murder of her friend and fellow bibliophile, the director William Desmond Taylor (she departed his house after borrowing some books from him, and was the last known person to see him alive), as well as in the shooting of oil broker and golfer Courtland S. Dines (shot by her chauffeur with her pistol). In 1920 she played a "split-personality" role as "Mayme" and "Rosa" in the film What Happened to Rosa? Hence our attribution of this book as being inscribed to herself. .
