      Albert & Charles Boni New York: Albert & Charles Boni, 1924. First Edition. cloth. About Fine, lacking a dustwrapper. Blue cloth. Illustrated with drawings. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the front endpaper nearly filling the page: "To/J.C. Calhoun/a Friend/from/Will Rogers/(almost an author)/New York. Nov 15, 24." Rogers was born in Indian Territory in 1879 and had some Native American blood in his veins. He began in vaudeville and moved on to motion pictures, a career that was cut short when he died in a small plane crash in 1935 near Point Barrow, Alaska. Perhaps he was best known, however, for his syndicated newspaper column which had such a massive following that the proposition that he run for President was once seriously advanced. His saying, "All I know is what I read in the newspapers," became a popular catchword of the times. Books signed or inscribed by this most popular of American humorists, especially with such a fine inscription, are uncommon.

I'm sending you "The Bomb" & some little booklets.. which contain a number of my "Contemporary Portraits". These have sold better in the US than my short stories... I seem to have lost my way in life...

"Frank Harris (1856 – 1931) was a British-born, naturalized-American author, editor, journalist and publisher, who was friendly with many well-known figures of his day. Though he attracted much attention during his life for his irascible, aggressive personality, editorship of famous periodicals, and friendship with the talented and famous, he is remembered mainly for his multiple-volume memoir My Life and Loves, which was banned in countries around the world for its sexual explicitness." - Wikipedia.

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1924. ONE OF 1,670 COPIES, OF WHICH THIS IS ONE OF 1,050 FOR AMERICA (1,000 of them for sale), SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR (this is copy #982). 235 x 159 mm (9 1/4 x 6 1/4"). 28 volumes. Original publisher's linen backed green paper boards, paper title labels on flat spines, edges rough trimmed. Half of the volumes UNOPENED, and all encased in the original (slightly worn) slipcases (one slipcase a modern replica). Photographic frontispiece in each volume. Title pages in red and black. Printed on high quality rag paper. Most volumes with extra paper labels. Spines slightly darkened, rough edges a bit yellowed, three leaves with open marginal tears well away from the text (no doubt from rough opening), other trivial imperfections, but A VERY FINE SET, many of the volumes in near pristine condition, with much of the text having never been read. This is an attractively produced as well as textually important edition of the works of one of the most significant British authors at work during the final years of the 19th century and the first part of the 20th. The prolific and durable Herbert George Wells (1866-1946) is most famous for his imaginative fiction from the 1890s. Works like "The Time Machine" (1895), "The Island of Dr. Moreau" (1896), "The Invisible Man" (1897), "War of the Worlds" (1898) and "When the Sleeper Awakes" (1899) established Wells as a master (along with Jules Verne) of science fiction. At the same time, his novels from the new century were of considerable interest and value as well. His "Anticipations" (1902) "showed his real gift for sociological speculation" (DNB), and his "Tongo-Bungay" (1909) -- which tells the story of a corporate mogul who makes his fortune selling a slightly injurious patent medicine and, when everything else fails, turns to building war munitions--is often considered Wells' masterpiece. In addition to the major works of fiction, our 28 volumes obviously also include a large number of short pieces of fiction and nonfiction. By the time Wells died, he had published more than 100 books and established his fame not only as a writer, but also as a minor prophet who accurately predicted war planes, tanks, the atomic bomb, and World War II. Wells was born to lower middle class parents, and his early work life was unsuccessful as a draper and chemist's assistant. With each failure, Wells would reside with his mother on the estate where she served as a domestic and there immerse himself in its fine library. Later he won a scholarship to the Normal School of Science, studying biology under Darwin's major defender, T. H. Huxley (1825-95), meanwhile dabbling in contemporary ideas of socialism through free lectures at the Fabian Society. After earning a degree in zoology and geology, Wells taught and began publishing short stories, becoming a full-time writer after his major success with "The Time Machine." Printed on pure rag deckle-edge paper, the text of the present edition was read and revised throughout by Wells, and he wrote a special preface to each volume as well as a general introduction to the edition as a whole.

        A Child's Rosary Book

      Ditchling: St. Dominic's Press. VG. 1924. First Edition. Softcover. Grey printed wraps, a little wear to spine ends and corners of covers, title page printed in red and black, internally clean and bright, fifteen wood engraved illustrations by David Jones, two of which are reproduced on the upper cover. , David Jones (1895-1974) was a painter, wood engraver and one of the most important of the British modernist poets and his poem, 'The Anathemata', was considered by W. H. Auden to be the best long poem written in English in the 20th century. During the First World War Jones served in the Royal Welch Fusiliers and after demobilization, won a government scholarship to study art at the Westminster School of Art. Like a number of other artists and writers who had seen active service during the war, Jones was increasingly drawn to Roman Catholicism, to which he converted in 1921. It was probably Father John O'Connor (in fact the model for G.K. Chesterton's Father Brown character), who suggested that he contact the Catholic artist Eric Gill, and so Jones joined Gill's Guild of St Joseph and St Dominic, where he learned wood and copper engraving. Here Jones began illustrating books, initially for the St. Dominic's Press and later for the Golden Cockerel Press, for which he engraved the Cockerel itself in 1925. Despite a growing reputation as an illustrator Jones became increasingly dissaffected with the medium and for the rest of his career as an artist he concentrated on painting, his style moving from traditional watercolour to a unique mixture of pencil and watercolour, in which he produced dense works full of symbolism. , 8" by 5.5", [9] 2-37 [7] pp .

Overall a superior copy of what Gilbert described as "the only significant historical work in English on the Rosicrucian movement of the 17th century and its successors." [Gilbert A37(a)]. , Waite, Arthur Edward (1857–1942) was an English mystic and historian of occultism who, after the death of his father, was raised by his devout Roman Catholic mother. However after the death of his sister in 1874 Waite was drawn to spiritualism and from there to theosophy, alchemy and the occult. While he was actively involved in the occult revival of the late 19th century, being a member of the Golden Dawn and a founder of the Alchemical Society, Waite was never truly an occultist and saw himself more as a mystic seeking what he termed the "secret tradition', the knowledge by which man can achieve union with the divine. Waite is perhaps best known now for his translations of the work of Eliphas Levi and for the tarot cards designed under his supervision, which remain the best selling tarot cards of all time. However it is the four books he wrote on the secret tradition, starting with this work in 1924, which best represent Waite's work thought and on which his reputation should rest. , 8vo 8" - 9" tall, xxiv + 649 [3] pp .

By Harvey Cushing, M.D., Professor of Surgery, Harvard Medical School. Cleveland, Ohio: Privately printed, 1924. Inscribed Family Presentation Copy. First Edition. Fine leather binding with the original paper wraps bound in. Signed by Cushing on the front cover with a brief inscription for his nephew: "Edward H. Cushing / from / H.C." Cushing family bookplate on the front pastedown with the ownership signature of E. H. Cushing. The bookplate, designed by Harvey Cushing himself, incorporates his family crest and motto, along with the initials of the long line of doctors from the Cushing family and the years they graduated medical school. Cushing signed with his initials "HC" when the recipient was family or close friend. For those inscriptions to folks he did not know well, he signed in full. Handsomely bound in half-leather over burgundy cloth. Gilt spine title and ruling. Original printed gray paper covers bound in. 8vo., 33pp followed by (50) blank leaves evidently added by the binder to enhance the appearance of the volume for the Cushing family. Small binder’s ticket on rear pastedown (W.A. De Podesta / Art Book Binder / Cleveland.) Map illustration facing the first page of text. A very good or better copy with sound, tight binding. Some light rubbing and wear to the extremities and along the outer joints. Modest age-toning to the endpapers and some darkening of the fore-edge areas adjacent to the leather corners. Text pages clean and unmarked. No creasing, tears or other flaws to the paper covers. A superb Cushing item (1869-1939), noted American neurosurgeon, an innovator of brain surgery, and the first to describe Cushing’s syndrome. Often called the father of modern neurosurgery, Cushing was a professor at Harvard starting in 1911, later served in a medical capacity with allied forces in World War I, and was with the Yale University School of Medicine from 1933 until his retirement in 1937. His literary credits include a 1926 Pulitzer Prize for his biography of another medical pioneer, Sir William Osler. Cushing Bibliography no. 224. "The essay shows evidence of much patient research, but as with the 'Osler' it was obviously a labor of love, since there was nothing that stirred him [Cushing] more than the stories of his pioneering forebears on both sides of the family who, discontented with their lot in New England journeyed to the Western Reserve where they set up their own vigorous way of life, their schools, and their traditions in medicine" - Fulton, Harvey Cushing, pp. 511. A very nice example of this very desirable Cushing publication uncommon in any condition, and unique as a family association. Custom slipcase in fine condition. [30754] $3250. Signed by Author. 1st Edition.

        The Book of the Queen's Doll House

      London: Methuen , (1924). Two quarto volumes. xiv, 249; xiv, 384pp. From an edition of 1,500 copies, this a donor’s copy in a deluxe binding, presented to the architect Miss Clare C. Nauheim. Her name is inscribed on the limitation page and is also included in the list of donors at the end of the first volume. It is clear that Miss Nauheim had an intimate knowledge of the doll house and its contents: she made annotations in pencil on several pages of the inventory appendix, correcting or adding to the items listed for certain rooms. For example, the “eight Egyptian amulets” originally in a hallway vitrine were changed to three, and a towel horse was omitted from the princess royal’s room. Each volume is profusely illustrated in color and black & white. The first volume describes Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House at Windsor Castle, its architecture, furniture, and paintings, with a chapter on the garden by Gertrude Jekyll. The second volume deals exclusively with the library of the Dolls’ House, containing a complete listing of the books, facsimile pages of handwritten books for the library, and reproductions of many of the seven hundred watercolors painted for the Queen. A bibliographic treasure. A fine set in vellum-backed blue cloth boards, gilt-stamped with the Queen’s monogram on the front covers.
