' Dedicated to Field Marshall Lord Herbert Charles Onslow Plumber. G.C.B., G.C.M.G.,G.C.V.O.,&c. The preface begins... 'Complying with the request and by the encouragement of Lieut-Colonel V.T.R.Ford,D.S.O. I have written in more detail the History of the York and Lancaster Regiment and have essayed to retrieve from oblivion the glorious deeds of this gallant regiment etc. Extensively corrected in typescript and holograph with original and copy photographs, drawings,letters etc. Together with a quotation for its printing by Chas.

        ALMANACCO LETTERARIO BOMPIANI

      Milano, Mondadori/Unitas/Bompiani, 1925-1999. In-8 p. e in-8 gr., bross. e cartonato edit. Di questa rivista annuale illustrata offriamo "tutto il pubblicato" cosi?' composto: 40 volumi che comprendono il periodo che va dal 1925 al 1980 + il volume su Pirandello (curato da Leonardo Sciascia) del 1987 e quello su Sciascia (curato da Matteo Collura) pubblicato nel 1999. L?'Almanacco Letterario Bompiani - il più importante del Novecento - temporalmente può suddividersi in due gruppi: il primo dal 1925 al 1942; il secondo (dopo una sosta di 16 anni dovuta alla guerra e ai suoi postumi) dal 1959 al 1980. La caratteristica dell?'Almanacco Letterario Bompiani è di non essere solo letterario, ma di dare grande importanza anche alla grafica, alle illustrazioni e alla pubblicità. In altre parole, dare un rilievo all?'elemento ?"visuale?", in modo assolutamente unico. A riprova possiamo citare la partecipazione di artisti come Angoletta, Zavattini, Munari, Carboni e decine di altri autori del settore. La raccolta inoltre costituisce un continuo specchio della cultura di epoche diverse: da quella fascista, a quella del dopoguerra, a quella degli ultimi anni del ?'900. Tre volumi con dorsi restaurati, qualche dorso con tracce d?'uso, altrimenti esemplare ben conservato.

Another card with a slightly different layout of the dialogue is initialled by Drinkwater, with 'Proof' in manuscript on the front.

        Mrs. Dalloway

      The Hogarth Press, London, 1925, Cloth Bound, Book Condition: Good Plus, Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket, 1st EditionPUBLISHING DETAILS: True first edition, first printing of Virginia Woolf's great novel, published by her and husband Leonard at their Hogarth Press, London, in 1925. 293 pages. Size; 19 x 13 cms (7.5" x 5"). Weight; 410g (14 ounces). CONDITION: I would rate this as good plus. It is one of a set of 4 Virginia Woolf novels trimmed and rebound by The Cambridge Union Society. The plain grey cloth covers are clean and sound and the binding is tight and secure. The text is mostly clean but a number of pages do have marks and pp. 63-66 and 207/8 are reinforced with clear archival tape (see photos). The Cambridge Union Society's stamp is on the title page and back page. A still neat, very rare and collectible first edition, competitively priced to allow for the rebind. THE NOVEL:'Mrs Dalloway' details a day in the life of Clarissa Dalloway in post-World War I England. It is one of Woolf's best-known novels. Created from two short stories, "Mrs Dalloway in Bond Street" and the unfinished "The Prime Minister", the novel's story is of Clarissa's preparations for a party of which she is to be hostess. With the interior perspective of the novel, the story travels forwards and back in time and in and out of the characters' minds to construct an image of Clarissa's life and of the inter-war social structure. In 2005 the novel was chosen by TIME magazine as one of the one hundred best English-language novels from 1923 onwards. (Source: Wikipedia.)Size: 19 x 13 Cms (7.5" x 5") Pages: 293

        Pencil caricature portrait, signed by both sitter and artist.

      1925 1925 - Original pencil caricature (290 × 173 mm). Window mounted and framed in an ebonized wood Czech Cubist-style frame, UV-resistant glass. Shows signs of having been somewhat crumpled at some point, old soft creases, slight soiling and occasional scuffing of the surface, a few short edge-splits at the top, but overall very good. Wonderful portrait from life of the great Czechoslovakian writer by that portmanteau nation's finest caricaturist. Commonly characterised as a writer of science fiction - his most famous work is probably The War with the Newts, described by influential critic Darko Suvin as "the pioneer of all anti-fascist and anti-militarist SF" (Smith, Twentieth-century Science Fiction Writers) - Capek's writing is ill-served by such pigeonholing. Arthur Miller, a youthful enthusiast for his work attempted to sum up Capek's unique appeal; "There was no writer like him prophetic assurance mixed with surrealistic humour and hard-edged social satire: a unique combination he is a joy to read" (Foreword to Smith, Toward a Radical Center: A Karel Capek Reader). Following the cession of the Sudetenland to Germany in September 1938, Capek, although identified by the Gestapo as an enemy of the Nazi state, refused to go into exile, and suffering from depression he succumbed to pneumonia just a couple of months later. His artist brother, Josef, with whom he had collaborated on a number of projects, was arrested soon after the Nazi invasion and sent to the camps. He died in Bergen-Belsen shortly before the end of the war. The artist Oscar Bergen was trained at the Berlin School of Art, and began his career on Germany, but he fled when Hitler came to power, settling in London where he worked for a number of newspapers and magazines including the Daily Telegraph, the News of the World, and Lilliput. After the war he emigrated to America where he became noted for his "kindly rather than critical" caricatures. A wonderful evocation of one of Czechoslovakia's cultural Golden Ages, but shadowed perhaps by the Age of Iron to come.
