      New York: Il Carroccio Publishing Co, 1926. New York: Il Carroccio Publishing Co, 1926. First Edition. Stapled Pamphlet. Very Good binding. The story of the little terrier who was on Amundsen&#39;;s expedition over the North Pole. Penned by Antonio Quattrini, the Italian journalist who accompanied the journey, along with Umberto Nobile who was Titina&#39;;s master and the engineer and pilot of the dirigible Norge. Titina joined the expedition because she simply could not stand being separated from her master. Sixteen people and one dog -- led by Amundsen and Lincoln Ellsworth -- crossed the North Pole from Norway to Alaska in the Norge. Upon the triumphant return, the crew -- including Titina -- were feted worldwide. At the White House, when meeting Calvin Coolidge, Titina peed on the carpet. Rarely was anyone so excited to meet President Coolidge. Remarakably scarce item, with no copies on OCLC. Very Good binding.

Front cover with splashmark, small puncture to inner hinge of front cover. Occasional light spotting. A very good copy. First edition. In Banking policy and the Price level, Robertson developed his earlier theme, first displayed in A Study of Industrial Fluctuation (1915), of the importance of saving and investment as the determinants of the level of economic activity, with the banking systems as the means whereby savings are transferred (or not transferred) into investment. "It is not extravagant to claim this work and not Keynes&#39;s General Theory as the fountainhead of modern macroeconomic dynamics" (Blaug).

        Against the Grain (A Rebors) [together with] Down There (La-Bas)

      London: The Fortune Press,. London: The Fortune Press,, [1926 and 1930]. 2 works, octavo. Original black buckram, titles to spines gilt, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. With the dust jackets. Work 1: rubbing to the corners, mild spotting to endpapers and tanning to the margins of leaves; work 2 only mild tanning to the endpapers. Both excellent copies in mildly rubbed, spine-tanned and soiled jackets. Limited issue Fortune Press editions of Huysman&#39;s two major works (originally published in 1884 and 1891 respectively); Against the Grain: first English edition, first printing, one of just 250 numbered copies in the better binding; Down There: one of a numbered 2000 copies on Antique Laid Paper. A Rebors, Huysman&#39;s celebrated decadent novel, has long been revered, both in its own right and because it was famously the book which Oscar Wilde made Dorian Gray read as his tutelary manual of aestheticism, describing it as "the strangest book he had ever read". Copies of this limited edition of Against the Grain are very scarce in this state. La Bas introduced Huysman&#39;s semi-autobiographical character Durtal who, disgusted with the shallow vulgarity of the modern world, turns to the mediaeval past for solace, and eventually finds (and enters) a thriving underworld of black magic and practising Satanism in fin de siècle France.
