Twelve mounted color plates with captioned tissue guards and numerous black and white text illustrations including seventeen full-page.Publisher's vellum, front cover and spine pictorially stamped in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut. On the lower edge of the front cover there is a small 1/4 inch abrasion to the vellum, otherwise this is a fine copy complete with the publisher's blue cloth dust jacket, spine pictorially stamped in gilt, and the original plain cream paper dust jacket (slightly worn at extremities).Danish illustrator and designer Kay Nielsen (1886-1957) "was drawn early on to fairy tales and illustrated many volumes for Hodder & Stoughton: In Powder and Crinoline (1913), East of the Sun, West of the Moon (1914), Hans Andersen’s Fairy Tales (drawings completed in 1912, but first published in 1924), Hansel and Gretel (1925), and Red Magic (Jonathan Cape, 1930), a collections of fairy tales from around the world. Nielsen’s designs unite strong linearity with delicate colouring Characterized by a sense of two-dimensional flatness, Nielsen’s objects and people are highly stylized: foxglove blossoms hang in measured asymmetry; princes and princesses stand on improbably long legs; and their garments billow in gravity-defying parabolas. The power of his illustrations lies in his uncanny ability to retrieve a story’s emotional effect on its reader and to recreate it visually in two dimensions" (The Oxford Companion to Fairy Tales).

        Autograph letter signed ("G. Bernard Shaw"). Highland Hotel, Strathpeffer, 29. VII. 1924.

      1924. 8vo. 2 pp. In postally used oversize registered envelope. In green morocco slipcase. To Archibald Henderson, one of Shaw's chief U. S. advocates and biographer. Shaw notes that he encloses (not present) "what I have been able to do at odd moments and on rainy days to fill up that book for Harper. I can do more, and ought not to have done this, as it involved postponement of more important work for which I was too lazy. As to the agreement [...] the thing you sent me is absurd: Harper thinks he can escape his legal responsibilities by making a private agreement with someone to indemnify him, a proceeding which exposes him to prosecution [...] all he can exact from an author is an assurance that the book does not contain any hidden libel. For all overt libel, sedition, blasphemy or obscenity the publisher and printer are liable [...] Harper probably thinks that he could murder me and have you hanged for it if he could produce an agreement to that effect [...]". He thanks Henderson for some notes on "the New York Joan", and asks after Mrs. Henderson, mentioning his hopes that this reaches him at Skyland (North Carolina). - In 1925, Harper & Bros. published "Table Talk of G. B. S. Conversations on Things in general Between ... and his Biographer", by Archibald Henderson (1877-1963), professor of Mathematics at the University of North Carolina. - On Highland Hotel stationery.

        ARCTIC ORPHANS Verses by ... Illustrations by N[ancy] Parker.

      Landscape 4to. Unpaginated. 13 chromolitho. plates printed by M'Lagan & Cumming, numerous b/w. ills. Some light browning, very good in original boards, very lightly browned, with minimal wear to spine.Scarce. Enchantingly illustrated story of three polar bear cubs temporarily orphaned whilst their parents are off hunting for dinner, and the ensuing chaotic adventures that unfold until the (surprise surprise) safe return of mum and dad. 'The Parkers' quirky stories in verse about animals are popular with collectors of picture books. But it's hard to find out anything about the creators of Arctic Orphans, History of the Hoppers, Lays of the Greys, or Cinderella at the Zoo in the standard reference works. Until recently it was not known if the Parkers were men or women, one of their letters sold at Sotheby's London on November 11, 1996 presenting their aunt with a copy of a new book revealed that they were sisters named Bessie and Nancy.'

Full deep red brown crushed levant by La Haye, with geometric inlays in red and medium brown morocco extending across boards, with doublures with matching red morocco inlays, t.e.g., others untrimmed. One joint a bit rubbed, some spotting along top edge of upper board, with small ink drop on spine, internally very good consistent with nature of material. Maurois's set of corrected galley proofs for this work, the preliminaries mock-ups still reflecting the working title, NICIAS TROIS DIALOGUES SUR LE COMMANDMENT. While the proofs show the usual corrections of mechanicals and the like, Maurois also chose to substantially edit and rework the text in a number of places by way of pasteovers and inserts (including in one instance three full quarto leaves of typescript, and several other instances of almost full leaves of single-spaced typescript). He made substantial deletions of a number of long passages and the original text remains completely accessible. An inserted preliminary bears Maurois's caption title for his work in his hand (including two additional alternate titles), and his presentation inscription: "Pour Jean Lévy-Strauss, ami du livre et de l'auteur, en affecteux souvenir". - Talvart & Place notes the preparation of fifteen copies of the text prior to correction for circulation hors commerce; the corrected text for which these proofs and leaves of manuscript/typescript evidently served as basis was published in the distinguished Les Cahiers Verts series.

        The Diary of a Country Parson

      - London - Macmillan & Co., 1924 Book. Fine. Hardcover. First edition.. A first edition (second impression) of the famous diary of James Woodforde, the 18th century English parson, attractively presented in mottled quarter calf. This is the edition through which Woodforde's diary became widely known, having previously resided in its original manuscript form at the Bodleian Library. It was compiled and edited by John Beresford, who rather underestimated the success it would enjoy. It hasproven lastingly popular because of the unpretentious and curoiusly intimate insight it gives the reader: both into the life of the charming Woodforde, and into his gentle 18th century English world. One example: 25 Jan. 1795 - We breakfasted, dined &c. again at home. The frost this Morning more severe than Yesterday. It froze the Chamber Pots above Stairs. Many of the literary intellegentsia of the day, including Virginia Woolf, Max Beerbohm, and Sigfried Sassoon, helped publicise its value. Illustrated with many plates of illustrations, often showing the portraits of the personalities featured in the diary. There is also a fold out map of Norfolk in volumeIV. With half titles. Collated: completeCondition: Rebound in mottled quarter calf with marbled boards. Externally excellent, with almost no discernable wear. The text blocks are untrimmed but still reasonably clean. Internally, all volumes clean and bright throughout, and firmly bound. Overall: FINE.

        A Summer on the Test. With Twelve Dry-Points by Norm Wilkinson.

      London. Philip Allan & Co. 1924. - folio, 32x 24cm, xiii,[1],192,[1]p., limited to 325 copies, this being #13 of 25 large paper copies, each etched plate is signed by the artist, signed of the colophon by the author, on laid paper, uncut, in the original half vellum and fine grain green linen boards, gilt spine titles, gilt ruled borders on the boards, a fine copy, rare The best edition of a classic description of fishing on the Test, with each of the etched plates signed in pencil by Norman Wilkinson. "No one has better summarized the return to reason' effected single-handed by G.E.M. Skues than John Walker Hill in his 1924 volume A Summer of the Test". Gingrich. Fishing in Print. p224/225. ``For many years Hills was an able Member of Parliament, but he was also an angler with an historical bent. His History of Fly Fishing for Trout, a survey of the literature from Berners to Land, is still a valuable reference. A Summer on the Test is more limited and more factual than Green`s book, but its opening chapters that deal with the history of the Test as a fishing river is of more than passing interest, for he cites evidence even from the records of Romsey Abbey where dwelt some gay and undisciplined nuns and several abbesses who kept strict watch on the Test, a good source of fish for fasting days of Lent. The later chapters do include some fine reminiscent passage that clearly mark Hills as a writer of more than ordinary merit and a man deeply in love with this quiet from of recreation. The Library copy is no. 7 from the limited edition of 300. It is a fine quarto, illustrated by twelve delicately sensitive dry-point etchings by Norman Wilkinson, and printed with surpassing skill. .`` Starkman & Read. p126. The Contemplative Man`s Recreation. Included in their list of the forty book that are the ``Landmarks in the Evolution of the Literature of Angling: 1496-1969``.

        The Felix Annual - A Complete Set Of 6 Annuals

      1924 to 1929, each volume with 95pp & 4 colour plates, glazed boards, cloth spines. The contents are in generally good condition, with finger and other minor marks here and there. There is a small piece of loss from the bottom of one of the pages of the 1925 Annual. A former owner has stamped his name and the number/date of each annual at the front (not entirely accurately!). All the plates are present. The boards are rubbed at the edges and corners, some volumes more than others. The upper board of the 1925 Annual is dulled and there are two scuffs towards the bottom. Apart from the 1925 Annual, overall they are in very good condition - a full set such as this is exceptional! Felix was a cartoon character created during the silent film era - as well as appearing in animated shorts he had his own comic strip which started in 1923. He was immensely popular but the arrival of sound cartoons, in particular the Mickey Mouse shorts from Disney, was the beginning of the end for Felix and, although some Felix cartoons with sound were made, by the early 1930s it was all over. The 1929 Annual was the last to be published.

        2 eigenh. Briefe mit U. Stift Neuburg bei Heidelberg und Schloß Donaumünster in Donaumünster, 1924.

      1924. Zusammen (1+4=) 5 SS. auf 3 Bll. Gr.-4to und kl.-4to. An den Verleger und Sammler Kurt Wolff (1887-1963): "Ich bin bereit, das eine oder andere Buch aus meiner St. George-Bücherei abzugeben [...]" (6. August). - "Da die Instandsetzungsarbeiten von Schloss Münster immer mehr Geld verschlingen, so gedenke ich auch von meinen Georgica noch einiges abzugeben u. zwar diesmal 2 Hauptstücke: 1.) Die 'Pilgerfahrten' in der ersten Ausgabe mit eigenhändiger intimer Widmung St. Georges [...] 2.) Das 'Jahr der Seele' in der ersten Ausgabe gleichfalls mit Widmung St. Georges [...] Die 2 Bücher stammen aus dem Nachlaß Perls, die Widmungen sind an diesen, nicht an mich, sonst würde ich die Bücher natürlich nicht abgeben [...]". - Alexander Bernus leitete von 1902 bis 1905 die Zeitschrift "Freistatt", zu deren Mitarbeitern u. a. Frank Wedekind und Ricarda Huch zählten; erste Stücke wie "Don Juan" und "Masken" wurden in den 1907 gegründeten "Schwabinger Schattenspielen" aufgeführt. Zunehmend an Anthroposophie und Theosophie interessiert, gründete Bernus 1916 die anthroposophische Zeitschrift "Das Reich", in der u. a. Artikel von Alfred Kubin, Else Lasker-Schüler und Rudolf Steiner erschienen; nach Ende des Krieges war er Herausgeber der "Mitte". - Jeweils im linken Rand gelocht (geringf. Buchstabenberührung); papierbedingt etwas gebräunt.
