      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1926. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine/near fine. 1st edition of his first novel (later re-titled Smoky the Cow Horse). The real 1st printing with "1926" on the title page and only 3 lines on the copyright page. Signed and dated (in ink) on the endpaper, "Will James III-'26." Small, neat, original owner's name on pastedown, else fine (brilliant) in a near fine, untouched 1st printing dustjacket ($2.50 price, and with no later printings signified on the spine). The most notable flaw is a 1/2" tear to the top edge of the front panel (tears are to chips as mist is to rain). Complete with the original laid in pictorial bookmark, as issued. Soiled and/or worn copies sell for half our price (repaired ones should be even cheaper), but this is the finest one I've had, and it's much finer than the others that are out there, even the ones described candidly, and most are not. A plotline tracking Black Beauty but set in the American West in the early days of the 20th century, and injected with enough modern realism, to craft a cowboy landmark from the day it was published. It won the 1927 Newbery medal, and is a scarce 1st edition when it's in an unadulterated dustjacket in this condition. Numerous reprints of the jacket have been married to 1st editions of the book, so beware if the cloth is worn, or faded, or soiled, or looks like it hasn't been covered with a dustjacket all its life. And any Smoky jacket that's repaired, should immediately awaken your skepticisms, especially if it's backed, or the repairs touch the spine, as that's where the reprintings are noted, and fine sandpaper can remove them, or pulp can patch them, and the repairs can then obscure the evidence that anything was printed there before it was repaired, leaving you with a book that is like a blacksmith's bellows, it breathes but it does not live.

        The Two Sisters - SIGNED by the Author

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1926. A first edition, first printing published by Cape in 1926. Original maroon cloth, spine panel stamped in gold, bottom edge untrimmed. The authors' second book and first published novel. Softening of the spine tips and a touch of foxing to the top edge otherwise a near fine copy. The wrapper is also in near fine condition with a vertical crease along the full length of the spine and a touch of creasing at the spine tips. A lovely, bright and crisp copy. Unusually the wrapper has not had the small clips to all 4 corners and is ½ cm too tall for the book. One can only surmise that this is perhaps a proof dust wrapper of some sort. Clearly it has been folded in half at some stage and stored separately as it is really, bright and crisp. Signed by the author on the half-title. A superior copy of a book usually found to be in less than collectable condition. Very nice indeed. One of 1500 copies.

The extensive appendix reproduces a series of official orders as well as fourteen charts and strategic maps, loosely inserted on better paper stock. Savine 06239.

        [Photo Album]: University of Maine 1922-1926

      Maine, 1926. Near Fine. Oblong folio measuring 12" x 15". String-tied blue cloth over paper boards with an "M" and "Teddy Ray '26" stamped on the front board. Contains 203 sepia-toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between .5" x .5" and 8" x 10" with captions, additionally contains clippings and ephemera. Very good album with tears, worn edges, and toning, with near fine photographs.A scrapbook and photo album kept by Theda Adelaide Ray, also known as Teddy and Ray, while attending the University of Maine between 1922 and 1926. The album begins with hand colored illustrations of a man and a woman and then is followed by eight pages of autographs and small photographs of her classmates beginning in the fall of 1922 and ending at graduation in 1926. The autograph pages provide a space for the classmates' name, home, nickname/birthday, ambition, photo, and happy thoughts. Most of the sentiments are tongue-in-cheek answers. For example many of the students put "to pass" or get to the next grade as their ambitions. Others tried to take it seriously and included their education goals such as obtaining a Ph.D. in one case and their relationship wants such as marriage. The "happy thoughts" section contains memories and good wishes for the coming years. One written by Effie Braden reads. "getting up at 4 o'clock to study, Gee that was fun!" Another from Katherine Andrews exclaims "Just think of all this year! It's been the best ever!" of 1923.The album continues with a page dedicated to the faculty and campus with clippings of University of Maine president Dr. Clarence Little, postcards of the campus, and the lyrics of the University Hymn. Ray was involved with the field hockey team and followed the University sport's teams. Included throughout the album are clippings from events and a group photo of the field hockey team, and an action shot of the football team captioned "the winning touchdown" from 1922. A large photo shows the freshman girls P. T. class doing calisthenics and another shows the boys' baseball team practicing on a large indoor diamond. A collection of 26 small professional photos show buildings around the campus including the library, Albert Hall, Wingate Hall, and Lord Hall, among others. Interspersed throughout the album are pamphlets, cards, and programs from Ray's years at school including her graduation announcement and the program for Class Day exercises in 1926.Ray also documented her time at the university with a large collection of photographs of friends and events. Many of the photos show Ray and her friends posing around campus goofing off, carrying books, and going to class. One of these shows a woman posing with her ukulele; another shows a group of ladies on their way to art class; another is of a woman on her knees in the snow staring up and performing a mock proposal to a woman standing above her. A large photo shows a group of men in costumes as part of the Freshman theater company with the group dressed in different varieties of ethnic clothes ranging from Native Americans to Middle Eastern. The fourth floor of their housing proved to be a place where everyone could let loose, "talks on the fourth floor" are mentioned throughout the autograph section and a few photos show a rowdy group of men and women posed laughing with the caption, "fourth floor" beneath it. One group of photos shows Ray's class posing under the streamers at a dance in fancy dresses and tuxes. Ray graduated in 1926 with a B.S. and went on to be a High School teacher in Auburn, Maine.An voluminous collection of good-natured photographs and ephemera detailing a young woman's college years during the Jazz Age.

This is an excellent copy of this rare first edition. It is in Fine condition, tightly bound in original green boards, with gold gilt detailing to the front and lettering to the spine.

Inside, there is a small tear to the middle of the bottom edge of the front free endpaper, about 1.5 centimetres in length. There is just the slightest degree of toning and age spotting to the extreme edges of the pages, but otherwise they are clean and bright with no blemishes or marks to speak of. In all this is a rare Fine copy of this book! The dust jacket is in Near Fine condition, it is the rare first issue with 117th thousand to top of rear flap. There is some chipping to the spine ends and corners, and a closed tear to the top corner of the rear panel.

      London: Methuen & Co. Ltd,, 1926. With Decorations by Ernest H. Shepard. Octavo. Original green cloth, spine lettered in gilt, gilt vignette to front cover, top edge gilt, yellow map endpapers. With the dust jacket. Illustrated throughout by Ernest H. Shepard. Gift inscription to title page. Spine lightly rolled. An excellent copy in the dust jacket, spine panel lightly faded and slightly chipped at head, panels very slightly soiled, front flap fold slightly split at head and foot, tips worn. First edition, first impression. After the huge success of When We Were Very Young, first published on 6 November 1924, Milne was asked to contribute a story to the London Evening News. "The Wrong Sort of Bees", published on Christmas Eve 1925, was based on a bedtime story that Milne had told his son Christopher. It starred Christopher's stuffed bear, who had made his first public appearance in the poem "Teddy Bear", published in Punch in 1924 and later in When We Were Very Young. The original toy was a top-of-the-range Alpha Farnell bought at Harrods for Christopher Milne's first birthday, known initially as Edward or Edward Bear, then later rechristened Winnie-the-Pooh (after a favourite bear cub at London zoo). Winnie-the-Pooh was an immediate success and garnered even more enthusiastic reviews than its predecessor, with one critic writing that "When the real Christopher Robin is a little old man, children will find him waiting for them. It is the child's book of the season that seems certain to stay" (Thwaite p. 317). The book was first published in London on 14 October 1926 in an edition of 30,000 regular trade copies.

The mountains, waterfalls, and trees of the region are documented in the photos as well as group photos and one of a friend captioned "Dapper Dan" posing on top of "Chapel Tower."

There are images of Artist's Point, the Great Falls, and various wildlife including a buffalo and a bear captioned, "the holdup near."

        Elmer Gantry

      New York 1926 - Long galley proofs of the 1st edition (6 1/2" X 24"), printed on thin proofing paper (rectos only) dated "Dec. 27" [1926]. The first setting in type (book was 1927) of an immortal scrap of Western literature, the transit stage linking manuscript to 1st edition. Manufactured in a handful of copies to correct misprints and mis-settings before page proofs. Split across leaves 1 (see photo) and 123 rejoined with tape, some edge tears taped, last 3 leaves missing, but the missing text is supplied with 1st edition pages, connected to vaguely correspond, else good condition. Spartan cloth case. Despite being worn and imperfect, it's such a rarity that there is some chance it will turn out to be the finest (only?) known set, and with more than 100,000 1st editions printed (20,000 in the 1st binding), it's the only form of Elmer Gantry that will ever be rare. Upon publication the book was greeted with outrage by the exposed peddlers of empty promises, who called Lewis, an instrument of the Devil. But those who joined the whining failed to notice that Elmer Gantry rightly captured the temperament and distillate of a specific type of Midwestern revivalism callously engaged in bleeding those who didn't know the difference between being born again, and being born yesterday. It remains a tartly satiric, and dependence jangling, reminder that the cardinal doctrine of a fanatic's creed is that his enemies are the enemies of God. But God, by all testimonies, is not in danger (has no viable enemies) and, at worst, is only disappointed in those who wimp out and refuse to meet their human responsibility, that is, to live their lives testing the limits of their highest possibilities, and then to die with composure, like a hero going home. Lewis declined a 1926 Pulitzer Prize for Arrowsmith, 1925, because the prize was not awarded for literary merit but, "for the American novel published during the year which shall best present the wholesome atmosphere of American life, and the highest standard of American manners and manhood," both major targets of Lewis' satire (the romantic equivalent of sex in a Waffle House parking lot) and the reason why so many sleepy books have won it. In 1930 he became the first American to win the Nobel Prize for Literature, calming a national impatience that had become like an ingrown toenail. He accepted it, and the fat check that came with it, breaching the Swedish citadel for his fellow Americans, Eugene O'Neill, Pearl Buck, T. S. Eliot, William Faulkner, Ernest Hemingway, John Steinbeck, Saul Bellow (an American born in Canada), and a handful of more recent honorees, whose lasting worthiness will ultimately be decided in the reflections of history.
