        When We Were Very Young

      London: Methuen & Co. Ltd,, 1924. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine and pictorial designs to boards gilt, top edge gilt. Housed in a mid twentieth-century blue cloth box. Illustrated throughout by E. H. Shepard. Extremities a little worn, sine faintly darkened, endpapers lightly tanned, a couple of middle hinges starting but still holding firm. An excellent copy in a rubbed and toned box fraying at edges. First trade edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author to Elliott Beach Macrae, who would become his publisher in the US in 1944 as head of E. P. Dutton. The inscription, written as a poem on the front free endpaper, reads: "Though Beach Macrae / Be bald or grey / Or Elliot Beach / Be a little of each / Whatever his age, I shall say / 'Good luck to Elliot Beach Macrae'. Feb. 17th, 1931. A. A. Milne". Elliott Beach Macrae (1900?-?) had already proven himself in a succession of roles at E. P. Dutton when he became its third president, succeeding his father, who had himself succeeded the firm's founder. When Milne wrote the inscription he had good reasons to thank Macrae Jr. and wish him luck as the success of When We Were Young in the US - 260,000 copies had been sold in the US by 1927 - owed a great deal to the "extraordinary enthusiasm of Macrae …, who was then sales manager and sent copies of the book to anyone he thought would talk about it" (Thwaite). In 1947, while on a visit at Cotchford, Macrae spotted the original soft toy incarnations of Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, Kanga and Eeyore looking rather worse for wear in Milne's living room. Macrae then had the extraordinary idea to send the five toys on a tour of America. Milne accepted and produced hand-written "birth-certificates"; upon arrival in the US the five toys were insured for the considerable sum of $50,000. The tour was another big publicity success for Macrae and lasted several years, the five friends regularly coming to rest at the Dutton offices and finally settling down in a glass cabinet at the main branch of the New York Public Library. With Macrae's ownership signature dated spring 1930 on the front free endpaper verso. A beautiful copy and a fine association with regard to the publishing history of the Pooh books. This copy is in the rare first state, without the page number on the contents page (p. ix).

Orlik (1870-1932), der sie besonders förderte, und H. Meid (1883-1957) fortsetzte. 1931 heiratete sie den Maler H. Fischer (1906-1987); die schwierige Ehe führte 1947 zur Trennung. Nach dem Erhalt des Rom-Preises 1933-1934 Aufenthalt in der Villa Massimo in Rom und erneut durch die Verleihung des Preises an ihren Mann 1935-1936. 1935 Stipendium der Albrecht-Dürer-Stiftung. Nach ihrer Rückkehr aus Italien begann sie mit dem Illustrieren von Büchern, von nun an ihre Haupteinnahmequelle, da sie unter den Nationalsozialisten nicht mehr ausstellen konnte. 1937 Kassel-Preis und Silbermedaille für Graphik bei der Weltausstellung in Paris. Wiederholte Reisen nach Paris und Spanien. Seit 1959 litt sie unter dauernden Schmerzen (Trigeminus-Neuralgien); aufgrund einer Operation mußte die Künstlerin, deren Zeichenhand die linke war, mit der rechten Hand weiter arbeiten. Nach 1945 beteiligte sie sich an zahlreichen Ausstellungen, so in Heidelberg, Hagen, Freiburg, Mannheim und Karlsruhe. Auch wurde ihr eine Professur in Ost-Berlin angetragen, die sie jedoch ausschlug.

        Provincetown Playbill: A Leaflet Issued with Each New Production at the Provincetown Playhouse - Season 1923-24 No. 5.

      Provincetown Playhouse, [New York] 1924 - Playbill for the Provincetown Playhouse production of *All God's Chillun Got Wings* by Eugene O'Neill. Octavo. Single sheet folded twice to form six pages. Fine. A program for the original run of this controversial 1924 play about a black man who aspires to be a lawyer but is abused by his white wife who is infected by society's racism. The production was immediately lambasted by critics and the public for miscegenation, most notably for a scene in which the wife kisses her husband's hand. An early play of O'Neill's featuring Paul Robeson who also starred in the revival of *The Emperor Jones* the same year and would soon solidifie his fame in *Show Boat*. The playbill includes a cast list along with small text pieces from W.E.B. DuBois ("The Negro and Our Stage"), John Masefield ("Tragedy"), a poem from Langston Hughes ("The Negro Speaks of Rivers"), and lyrics to the Negro spiritual that provides the play's title. Rare. *OCLC* locates one copy. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Forest Giant. Translated from the French by 'J.H. Ross' [T.E. Lawrence].

      Jonathan Cape 1924 - FIRST ENGLISH EDITION, frontispiece and decorative border to title-page with decorations at head of each text page, a little very faint foxing to prelims and pencil note identifying Lawrence to title-page, pp. 158, foolscap 8vo, original quarter yellow cloth with green boards, backstrip with printed label, a touch of wear to one corner, edges roughtrimmed, dustjacket with darkened backstrip panel frayed at either end with some loss at foot, a little chipping to corners and darkened overall, good. A presentation copy, inscribed on the half-title by Charlotte F. Shaw (the wife of George Bernard Shaw, and a close friend and correspondent of Lawrence's) to J.G. Wilson of Bumpus - likewise a close friend, who would go on to be Lawrence's executor: 'J.G. Wilson from Charlotte F. Shaw, 13 March 1929'. Lawrence's very free translation of 'Le Gigantesque' was taken on to fill his time following expulsion from the RAF, but became a burden: he complained to Cape that 'at last this foul work' was 'complete. Please [.] get it off my suffering chest before I burst'. (O'Brien A094)

        Early Connecticut Architecture [Elephant Folio Loose Prints, Both Sets] in Original Brentano's Box

      New York: William Helburn, 1924 New York: William Helburn, 1924 & 1931. First Editions. Full sized loose prints in original Brentano's cardboard shipping portfolio circa 1931; these are not the smaller books, but the original prints. Drawings reproduced to true scale, full size profiles. The First and Second series complete, consisting of 25 plates in the first (1924) and 20 plates in the second (1931). All 21" x 15", all in near fine to fine condition, with light foxing to the title page of Series One and Plate 20 of Series Two. Both sets were limited editions. Seldom found in this condition. Second series is quite scarce. Far too large for flatbed scanning, even on a large format scanner; see digital photographs. J. Frederick Kelley, AIA, shows his studies of architectural details on a number of named early New England residences in these sets; Kelly (1888-1947) was an early twentieth century New England architect noted for, in addition to his seminal books, critiques, and these prints, restoration of such historical homes as Harrison House in Branford, CT., a circa 1725 Classic colonial saltbox which is now a tourist attraction, and the circa 1639 Henry Whitfield House in Guilford, CT, the second restoration of which he executed in the 1930's. In accordance with his specialty, the prints in these sets are primarily residential in nature. Difficult find in this condition. l-lrt

Not in Grove, Worldcat, MGG I, Pazdírek, or the Bibliothèque Nationale online. A French composer admired by Ravel, Laparra "studied with Gédalge, Fauré, Lavignac and Diémer although his music, with its constant reference to Spanish dance, must surely owe a lot to Albéniz. He was awarded the Prix de Rome in 1903 for his cantata Alyssa... His early career was mostly devoted to opera. He also made a substantial contribution to the mélodie, composing songs throughout his life." Richard Langham Smith in Grove Music Online.
