        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.

        Winnie-the-Pooh.

      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.
