        THE FIRE IN THE FLINT (Signed)

      Alfred A. Knopf, New York 1924 - Signed. The first book by this important leader of the American civil rights movement. As a young man, he joined, at the behest of James Weldon Johnson, the national staff of the NAACP in 1909, in the association's early days. He was to become its Executive Secretary, and during his near 25 year tenure, it was he who really constructed the fight against segregation in public places. Of mixed race, his name is almost ironic -- as he could pass as a white man, and as such worked as an "undercover agent" for the NAACP investigating lynchings in the South.~White's first book, and one of the early products of the Harlem Renaissance, with a warm and personal inscription. Near Fine binding. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        A Summer on the Test

      London: Philip Allan & Company Quality Court, 1924. First edition, no. 78 of an edition of 300 copies, signed by the author. With 12 original drypoint etchings by Norman Wilkinson, printed from the plate, and other illustrations in the text. xiii, [iii], 198, [1] pp. Printed by Southampton Times Limited. 1 vols. Large 4to. Half burgundy cloth and green gray cloth, uncut edges. Spine a bit sunned, lower corners slightly bumped, else fine. An Angling Classic, with Derrydale Associations A splendid book, with Wilkinson's evocative etchings. Major the Right Honourable John Waller Hills qualified as a solicitor but spent most of his career in Parliament as an MP, Privy Councillor, and Financial Secretary to the Treasury. In addition the present volume, and books on finance and horse racing, he wrote A History of Fly Fishing for Trout (1921) and River Keeper (1934). He died in 1938, just before he was due to receive a Baronetcy; instead, this was conferred on his five year old son, with the Major's wife being accorded the style and title of a widow of a Baronet. Notes Robb, "This is very exceptional, if not unique ... his merit was equaled by his popularity; he was given the significant and familiar name of "Jack" Hills."In 1931 Eugene V. Connett, proprietor of The Derrydale Press, imported some unsold copies of A Summer on the Test for sale to his customers, subsequently prompting Frazier to list it in his enumeration of Press titles as "an important and beautiful Derrydale related item". He also notes that in addition to a plain green cloth binding this book "comes in at least one variant binding in cloth which simulates a three-quarter leather binding", as in the copy offered here. Siegel notes that Connett's copies "were not marked in any manner that would enable one to identify them as being imported for The Derrydale Press".Not a Derrydale, but at least a distant relation, and a very nice copy of, as Robb puts it, "one of those volumes one loves to count among his treasures."

        Fairy Tales by Hans Andersen

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1924. - A Superb CopyOf The First U.K. Trade Edition[Nielsen, Kay, illustrator]. Andersen, Hans Christian. Fairy Tales by Hans Andersen. Illustrated by Kay Nielsen. London: Hodder and Stoughton, [1924]. First trade edition. Quarto (11 1/8 x 8 7/16 in; 281 x 213 mm). 197, [3] pp. Twelve mounted color plates with captioned tissue guards and numerous black and white text illustrations (seventeen full-page) and decorative borders and initials. Publisher's green cloth, front cover and spine pictorially gilt. Very slight rubbing to spine ends and minimal fading to spine otherwise a gilt-bright and near fine copy."In an attempt to reinvigorate the market for gift books after the war, Hodder & Stoughton resumed the publishing of Kay Nielsen’s books, though on a more modest scale. In 1924 they published a work that Nielsen had begun in 1912, Hans Andersen’s Fairy Tales, including sixteen stories illustrated with twelve watercolors. Nielsen returned to London, and in 1925 his final book for Hodder & Stoughton, Hansel and Gretel, appeared with twelve color plates" (Susan E. Meyer, A Treasury of the Great Children’s Book Illustrators, p. 206).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).

        To Charles Warren Stoddard [original typescript of poem]

      Private, 1924 Original typed manuscript of a poem by George Sterling, signed by him at the bottom, entitled "To Charles Warren Stoddard". Date: 1909 or later, since the poem laments Stoddard's death, and Stoddard died on April 23rd, 1909, at Monterey, California. Stoddard, born in Rochester, NY, became a San Franciscan in his teens. He became a widely admired writer and poet, himself, in the late nineteenth century. George Sterling was a protege of both Jack London and Ambrose Bierce; Bierce became so enamored of Sterling's poem [this one] that he included it in his own collected works. 5 four-line stanzas. Laid in is a typed "Note to 'The Lake of Innisfree' ", that note, also by Sterling, is essentially an essay in which Sterling tells of a private publication by John Henry Nash of that William Butler Yeats' poem, and manifests Sterling's admiration of both Yeats and Nash. Also included is the typed verse 'The Lake of Innisfree' itself, presumably also typed by Sterling. Sterling's poem on Stoddard is an original, and is an extremely beautiful and moving lament on Stoddard's death. Fair enough, since Stoddard himself had earlier written a poem, "To George Sterling", which moved Clark Ashton Smith sufficiently that he included it in his remembrance, "An Appreciation of George Sterling". Serious mutual admiration all around - and I'm going to need a roster card. Condition: a few spots on the original poem, age toning and light wear-wrinkles on all three documents. Overall, Very Good. Provenance provided to purchaser. L21

      1924 - MILNE, A. A.The Four Pooh Books: When We Were Very Young; Winnie The Pooh; Now We Are Six; The House At Pooh Corner.London: Methuen, 1924-28.Four volumes.First editions of Milne’s wonderful "Pooh Quartet," in original dust jackets."Although Alan Alexander Milne wrote novels, short stories, poetry and many plays for adults, in addition to his work as assistant editor for Punch from 1906 to 1914, it is his writings for children that have captured the hearts of millions of people worldwide and granted Milne everlasting fame" (Silvey, 461). Milne wrote most of these poems at the request of friend and fellow poet Rose Fyleman, who was planning a new children’s magazine. "On a rain-blighted holiday in Wales, [Milne] escaped from the crowd of fellow guests to the summerhouse, and for 11 days wrote a set of children’s verses, one each day ‘There on the other side of the lawn was a child with whom I had lived for three years [his son, Christopher Robin] and here within me were unforgettable memories of my own childhood.’ He added more verses when he got home, enough for a book, and allowed some to be published in advance in Punch" (Carpenter & Prichard, 351). Shepard, a Punch staff artist at the time, provided delightful line vignettes, resulting in "a wonderful marriage of verse and vision. His delicately precise and fresh drawings had an instant appeal" (DNB).Payne I.A-IV.A. Cutler & Stiles, 115-16.Books fine with cloth clean and gilt bright.

His delicately precise and fresh drawings had an instant appeal" (DNB).When We Were Very Young with mild foxing to boards, slight rubbing to extremities; fragile scarce dust jacket with wear and some loss. Other three books and two dust jackets fine with expert repairs to original cardboard boxes. A lovely and desirable, complete set of signed limited first American editions.

        Autograph letter signed ("TE Shaw").

      Clouds Hill, Moreton, Dorset, 15. X. 1924. - 2 pp. 8vo. With autogr. envelope. Includes TDS by G. E. B. Bromley-Martin, of the Bank of Liverpool and Martin, London (dated 22. Dec. 1924). To Whitney H. Shepardson of New York, who had inquired as to how he might obtain a copy of the "Seven Pillars of Wisdom" when the book was finally published: "The Prophet has sent me on your letter, with instructions to deal with it: - and I'm puzzled. Really you know you are foolish to want a copy. It's a thirty guinea book, of which so many copies are being sold as will meet the printing bills (about 120 copies perhaps) with some off-prints of the unadorned text for the twenty or thirty fellows who shared the campaign with me. I can't give them 30-guinea presents: they can't buy 30-guinea books. So I want the subscribers to pay for my generosity in giving them free copies. The prime cost lies in the pictures (about 60, many in colour, at 10/- a print!) and the pictures are only an unjustifiable whim of mine. They have been done by British artists whom I liked, + who would work for me. Such a luxury book is for the idle rich. Mrs. Lamont is getting one. Huntingdon [!] + Pierpont Morgan aren't.! . Do you feel justified in chucking away so much on an amateur production? The writing is pretentious, dull, hysterical, egotistical, + preternaturally long. No human being has ever been to the end of it [the 335,000 word ms.]. They return it, thumbed to about half way, with pretty speeches. So long as I hold it secret, the sight of it is a boast, so long it will be praised. Seriously, it isn't any earthly good. It costs as I have said, may be a year yet in printing, + is horrible in parts. Eleanor (beg her pardon, but that's her only possible name. The proper ones only indicate her wayward choice of parents etc.) would be sick over it. The thing will not be reprinted entire in my life-time: you suggest 'for a long time.' . but the prospect isn't pleasing. There will be an American Edition, to secure copyright. Doubleday, probably. He has made a reasonable estimate. It would be printed at my expense, two copies for the Library of Congress, or whatever the show is, + eight for sale: + the sale price will be prohibitive, so that they will never sell, + the edition will never be exhausted, + no one may pirate! I suggest 10,000 dollars, but F.N.D. hasn't yet considered what is above-high-water-mark in U.S.A. Tell me, please, if you are knowing! If despite all faults (my most honest dissuasion puts people on sometimes!) you want a copy: then you'll have to send fifteen guineas, half price - E. will know the size of the extinct coin - to: Manager / Bank of Liverpool + Martins / 68 Lombard St. / London, E.C.3, payable to TE Lawrence, + 'Seven Pillars account' . Balance when you get the book. Let me strongly urge you not to. I have 90 subscribers, so there is no urgency - on the point of helping lame dogs! [.]". - When the book finally appeared in 1926, the cost of each copy to Lawrence was triple the selling price, and it was not until the fourth reprint of the 1927 abridgement "Revolt in the Desert" that his debts were paid off. As the included receipt shows, Shepardson was undeterred and duly transferred the £15. 15/- to Liverpool & Martins' (the last copy of the 1926 "Pillars" at auction commanded £30,000 at Sotheby's in 2009). - The U.S. businessman Whitney Hart Shepardson (1890-1966), educated at Colgate, Balliol (as a Rhodes Scholar), and Harvard, had served as aide to the State Department at the 1919 Paris Peace Conference, where he may have met Lawrence. Between 1925 and 1927 he served as director on J. D. Rockefeller's General Education Board. A leading O.S.S. operative in WWII, he was the first London head of Secret Intelligence and remained with the organization soon to become the C.I.A. until 1946.

        The Pageant of Empire Souvenir Volume. Cover title: Pageant of British Empire Souvenir Volume

      London.: Fleetway Press Ltd.. 1924.. Color pictographic / pictorial map, color lithographic illustrations including a four panel foldout, pictorial endpapers, 55pp, 16 x 12 inches, color decorative paper covered boards (hardbound). One sheet apparently missing from the front of the volume (behind the front free endpaper), previous owner's signature to title page, repaired split to head of spine, light soiling and wear to covers, corners bumped. Paper label glued to front cover below "Empire" in the title. Good to very good condition. A beautiful production lavishly illustrated with richly colored lithographed illustrations by many famous artists of the day celebrating the rich history of the British Empire and commemorating the "Pageant of Empire" which were historical pageants that were performed at the Empire Stadium (later Wembley Stadium) in 1924 as part of the British Empire Exhibition. Among the richly colored illustrations are "Hong Kong: the Procession of Lanterns," "Singapore: Stamford Raffles' Farewell," and a double page color decorative map by MacDonald Gill "Map of the World in the Time of Cabot." Also present is the four panel foldout lithographic plate by Brangwyn of the pageant (with scenery by Brangwyn) that took place at the British Empire Exhibition. This foldout plate was apparently usually published in the special London and North Eastern Railway edition, along with an additional plate at the front of the book ("The Border Bridge"). Although this copy of the book is not identified on the cover as the special edition, it may have been intended as one: there is evidence that a sheet at the front of the volume has been excised (a plate not called for in the regular edition). .
