        El Habitante Y Su Esperanza

      Editorial Nascimento, Santiago de Chile 1926 - First edition of Nobel Prize winner Pablo Neruda's only novel. Influenced by the work of Rimbaud and Rilke, both of whom Neruda had translated into Spanish, this dreamlike revenge fantasy has an unapologetically poetic quality: in his prologue, Neruda admits: "Yo tengo un concepto dramático de la vida, y romántico; no me corresponde lo que no llega profundamente a mi sensibilidad." While El Habitante y Su Esperanza marked the end, rather than the beginning, of Neruda's career as a writer of fiction, it remains a significant early example of the experimental Latin American novel. Text in Spanish. This copy is inscribed by Neruda to American book dealer Maury Austin Bromsen, who was studying at the University of Chile in the year of presentation. No signed or inscribed first edition copies appear in the auction record: a genuinely scarce title inscribed by Neruda. Small octavo, cream-colored wraps printed in red and green. Wraps soiled with small stain to head of spine, title underlined in blue ink on the front panel, evidence of early repairs to edges and hinges. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

      N.P.: Privately printed, [1926]. - First edition. 8vo. Signed and dated by the author on front fly leaf on 4/5/27. From the library of Captain & Mrs. R. L. George, Camp Marfa, Texas, April 5, 1927. Purple cloth, gold stamping on front cover and spine, viii, 215 pp., frontis. [photograph of the author's father], preface, illustrated, plates, portraits, folding map bound-in at rear of book, index. BTB 184 says, "This worthwhile account of the Big Bend region during the 19th century is especially valuable because one of Shipman's major sources was her pioneer father, of whom she writes: 'To my father, Captain Pat Dolan, I am especially indebted. He has lived on the Texas frontier for seventy-five years and with remarkable clearness of mind recalls the stirring events of the days gone by.' She also quotes extensively from other pioneers and transients in the region, such as John L. Bullis, commander of Indian Scouts under Mackenzie; A. J. Fairmore and P. Bougad on the El Paso Salt War; Mexican outlaw Victor Ochoa; and Texas Ranger T. T. Cook. The work contains chapters on the early mail routes, the boundary commission, the camel experiment and transportation, the military posts, freighting, civil affairs, Indian Campaigns, the El Paso Salt War, Texas Ranger campaigns, ranching, outlaws, mining, and Mexican revolutionary activities after the turn of the century. This is followed by a section of sketches of early pioneer and ranching families." Six Guns 2006 says, "Scarce." "In a chapter entitled 'Law West of the Pecos' the author deals with the Texas Rangers and lawlessness. In another chapter there is mention of the Lincoln County War, Billy the Kid, John Wesley Hardin, John Selman, and other gunmen of the Southwest." Near fine, bright, square copy. An exceptional copy and a fine account of the early Anglo settlement of the Big Bend region. BTB 184. SIX GUNS 2006. HERD 2063. HOWES S422. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Das Totenschiff [The Death Ship]

      Berlin: Buchmeister Verlag, 1926. Early edition. Hardcover. 256pp. Octavo [24 cm] Blue cloth covered boards with a gilt stamped title on the spine, and a gilt stamped boat design on the front cover. Publisher's orange top stain. Very good. The extremities are rubbed, the covers are slightly concave, and the spine is heavily faded. The underlying boards are just beginning to peek through at the corners. The pages are mildly yellowed. Treverton 2, Howard 1b. According to Edward N. Treverton, this edition precedes the fourth state and possibly the third state of Treverton 1. Das Totenschiff was the first book to appear with Traven's name. B. Traven is one of the most mysterious figures of 20th-century literature. His true identity is still subject to much doubt. Although Traven claimed to be an American, his most famous works were first published in Germany during the 1920s and 1930s. Nothing definitive is known about Traven's beginnings. Never the less, Traven's novels have been translated into more than 30 languages and they have sold more than 25 million copies.

      London: Methuen & Co., 1926 - Octavo. Finely bound by The Chelsea Bindery in green morocco, titles and pictorial centre tools to spine, rule to boards gilt, multiple pictorial blocks to boards, floral endpapers, twin rule to turn-ins, gilt edges. A fine copy. Illustrated by E. H. Shepard. First edition, first impression. The little bear described by Christopher Milne in his autobiography as his "inseparable companion" has also become the inseparable companion of generations of children, often remaining the object of that faith late into adulthood. First appearing in 1924, along with his troop of animal friends, in When We Were Very Young, Winnie-the-Pooh was immortalised in Milne's two volumes of poetry and two story books. The illustrations by E. H. Shepard are probably as much loved as Milne's words - the combination of their talents making the books' appeal so remarkably enduring.
