        The World Crisis, a full set of six Canadian first editions

      Toronto: Macmillan, 1923 . First edition, only printing. Hardcover. This is a full set of Canadian editions of Churchill's acclaimed history of the First World War. Churchill's history - which he titled The World Crisis - was published in six volumes between 1923 and 1931. Of The World Crisis, Churchill bibliographer Frederick Woods wrote: "The volumes contain some of Churchill's finest writing, weaving the many threads together with majestic ease, describing the massive battles in terms which fitly combine relish of the literary challenge with an awareness of the sombre tragedy of the events." Churchill was in a special position to write this history, having served both in the Cabinet and on the front. He served as First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 until 1915. After the failure in the Dardanelles and the slaughter at Gallipoli Churchill was scapegoated and forced to resign. He spent his political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Before war's end, Churchill was exonerated and rejoined the Government, but the stigma would linger. Churchill may have meant for his history of the First World War to clear his name, but his masterwork - originally published in six volumes between 1923 and 1931 - far exceeds this purpose. The Canadian issue of Churchill's World Crisis was published in Canada from the American plates and is very similar in appearance, with nearly identical bindings apart from “Macmillan” instead of “Scribners” on the lower spines and of course the Canadian publisher on the title pages. Canadian editions are considerably more scarce than either their British or U.S. first edition counterparts. Assembling a full set of Canadian first editions has become quite challenging. This set features volumes varying from near-fine to very good minus. U.S. first printings of the 1911-1914 volume proved quite susceptible to spine sunning and blackening of the gilt and the same was true of the Canadian first edition. This Canadian Volume I suffers the inevitable spine fading, but the gilt has not blackened and remains clearly legible. The remaining five books in the set all feature exceptional spine color, with rich, unfaded spines and bright gilt. The fifth book, The Aftermath, is noteworthy for retaining the original front and rear faces of the dust jacket, which have been laid in at the title page. We note only minor wear to extremities throughout the set, with a tiny tear at the head of Volume I. The contents of all six volumes are clean. We find no spotting. Age-toning varies from light to moderate. The sole previous ownership marks we find are a name inked on the 1911-1914 front free endpaper, a gift inscription on The Unknown War half title, and a few stray ink marks on the blank verso of The Unknown War frontispiece. While The Unknown War is a notably bright, square and tight copy with the rear color folding map intact, we note that the rear folding map has some wear to the edge where it was previously slightly misfolded and protruded from the text block, the untrimmed page edges were slit roughly when first opened, leaving a little tearing to the fore edges of pages 11-14, and the half title is torn at the gutter, laid into the book.

        Girl from Hollywood

      1923 - BURROUGHS, Edgar Rice. The Girl from Hollywood. New York: The Macaulay Company, (1923). 12mo, original pictorial red cloth, original dust jacket. $3200.First edition, second printing, of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ most personal novel, wryly inscribed by him to collector W.E. Ambler.Burroughs’ “autobiographical novel about a California ranch family ruined by booze, dope and movieland promiscuity,” is a “facinating cultural document… Burroughs never intended The Girl from Hollywood as a roman à clef, though there was no mistaking certain connections. Rancho del Ganado is Tarzana to the last detail… Just as explicitly, Colonel Pennington embodies Burroughs’ habits and ideals… and to a certain extent, the Pennington children are a reflection of Burroughs’ worry that his own daughter would be mesmerized by Hollywood and that his sons would grow bored with Tarzana… In its topicality, The Girl from Hollywood bears a certain likeness to The Beautiful and Damned, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel of that same year” (Taliaferro, 18, 179-80). “Positive identification of the first printing has not been documented” (Currey, 71). This copy probable second printing (Currey text B), with frontispiece caption omitting the words “he said;” unworn lettering on copyright page and pages 9 and 195; light green design and lettering on rough, woven red cloth (Currey binding A). Second printing dust jacket with coat-of-arms publisher’s device at spine foot. First serialized in Munsey’s Magazine, June-November 1922. Zeuschner 165. Inscribed by Burroughs to Cleveland book, letter and autograph collector Judge W.E. Ambler. Burroughs’ inscription reads, in full: “To Judge W.E. Ambler. I congratulate you upon the selection of your hobbyâ€"in that, it does not necessitate the reading of fiction beyond the fly-leafâ€"this classic, of course, excepted. Cordially, Edgar Rice Burroughs. Tarzana Ranch, Jan. 21, 1924.” With Ambler’s owner signature. Typewritten transcript of inscription and biography of Burroughs affixed to front pastedown.Scattered light foxing.
