        Complete Run of the Sherlock Holmes Stories, As Well as 2 Complete Novels, in the Individual Strand Magazines

      London and New York: Strand, 1891-1927. 75 vols. 1st appearances anywhere, in the original monthly parts, of all 56 stories and both of the novels (The Adventures, The Memoirs, Hound of the Baskervilles, The Return, Valley of Fear, His Last Bow, and The Casebook), being every Holmes story that Doyle ever wrote, and the 2 novels published serially in these magazines (only A Study in Scarlet and The Sign of Four were not published in the Strands). All are the "London and NY" issues except The Hound which is imprinted "NY and London." Half the spines faded, some chips, tears, and strengthening, else very good, and most crucially, it's all here, and rarer than a football player blaming God for a defeat, and it's quite a beguiling time capsule of wide ranging content, fashion, illustration and advertising. The first modern media spectacle, and the model for all that followed, exploded when these Strands were issued. After the first 2 or 3 stories, unprecedented buzz generated long queues, stretching for blocks, at newsstands on the day of the months that each was published. Yet, despite those sales, sets in wrappers are now of the utmost rarity, but in reverse of their chronology. The Adventures and The Memoirs are seen occasionally, and sets of them are 100 times rarer in wrappers than when they've been rebound, or in the annual Strand collected clothbound form that is so often seen, or even the later cloth 1st editions. The Hound is 5 times scarcer again than The Adventures or Memoirs and the same proportions hold true for its relative scarcity over the bound Strands or the clothbound 1st edition. Then it gets crazy. Complete sets of The Return and Valley of Fear, in wrappers, are rare, and significantly less obtainable than their predecessors, and complete runs of His Last Bow and The Casebook, might as well be impossible. In fact, hopes for finding any of the last 4 in wrappers, complete with all their covers, other contents and ads, belong in the morgue, as few booksellers, collectors or librarians, have ever seen a single set of them for sale, at any price, in any condition. Sherlock Holmes is the most durable, and most famous, character in the entire landscape of literature, and the stories are sheer stardust, the morphine drip of impeccably contrived, mind expanding detective fiction, and the most often imitated, parodied and adapted works in the English language. Good.

        Revolt in the Desert

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1927. First London edition, one of 315 large paper copies. Illustrated. Folding map at end. [2], 445, [1] pp. 1 vols. 4to. Brown pigskin and tan boards. Faint traces of rubbing at head of spine. Early gift inscription on front pastedown, dated March 21st, 1927. Fine. First London edition, one of 315 large paper copies. Illustrated. Folding map at end. [2], 445, [1] pp. 1 vols. 4to. Revolt in the Desert was an instant bestseller on both sides of the Atlantic, and "[w]ithin weeks of publication the combined royalties from Revolt were more than sufficient to pay off the Seven Pillars overdraft. Lawrence's Trustees therefore invoked a special clause inserted in the contract with Cape to protect his privacy, and halted publication in England. Revolt continued to sell well, however, both in the United States and in translation" (Wilson [1988], pp. 180). Lawrence was characteristically of two minds about the book: dismissive of the text, which he viewed as an embarrassment to himself, and yet attentive to the critical response.

        Henrietta Szold

      November 16, 1927. Autograph letter signed "Henrietta Szold", two separate pages, 4½" x 7", on stationary "On Board the Cunard R.M.S. Carmania", November 16, 1927, addressed to Elisha Friedman, a member of the American Economic Committee for Palestine, on the Board of the American Friends of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, and on the Finance Committee of the Palestine Endowment Funds and the Hadassah Medical Organization. Fine and attractive.Szold writes: "If my efforts to meet the situation in Palestine will be crowned with as great success as yours to give one pleasure and encouragement, my most sanguine hopes will be fulfilled. Many, many thanks for the basket of flowers, which gave pleasure not only to me but to the whole ship's company in the dining salon. I can't recall whether I told you that Dr. Berkam is with me in the capacity of my personal advisor on educational problems. The drastic cut of over one hundred thousand dollars in the Education budget has been particularly upsetting to me. No expert advice can possibly compensate for so deep a cut, but expert advice may at least introduce (?) in a constructive way. Dr. Berkham is on the boat with me and we are putting several hours each day on the problem, in the hope that we may be half-way prepared to meet it on the spot, if only in this department and in all of them we can secure the co-operation of the Yishub(?) Instead I fear it's distrust of an executive whose chief duty, as it has been proclaimed from the rooftops is to 'balance the budget', a curtailed budget at that. We shall see what we shall see â€

        The House On the Cliff

      New York: Grosset & Dunlap, 1927 The Hardy Boys are fictional teenage brothers and amateur detectives. They live in the city of Bayport on Barmet Bay[10] with their father, detective Fenton Hardy, their mother, Laura Hardy,[a] and their Aunt Gertrude. Frank, the older brother, is eighteen (sixteen in earlier versions), and his younger brother Joe is seventeen (fifteen in earlier versions). The brothers nominally attend high school in Bayport, where they are in the same grade, but school is rarely mentioned in the books and never hinders the Hardys in solving mysteries.In the older stories, the Hardy Boys' cases are often linked to the confidential cases their detective father is working on. He sometimes asks them for help, while at other times they stumble upon villains and incidents that are connected to his cases. In the Undercover Brothers series, begun in 2005, the Hardys are members of an organization known as American Teens Against Crime, which assigns them to cases. The Hardy Boys are sometimes assisted in solving mysteries by their friends Chet Morton, Phil Cohen, Biff Hooper, Jerry Gilroy, and Tony Prito, and, less frequently, by their platonic girlfriends Callie Shaw and Iola Morton (Chet's sister).The Hardy Boys are constantly involved in adventure and action. Despite the frequent danger, the boys "never lose their nerve ... They are hardy boys, luckier and more clever than anyone around them." They live in an atmosphere of mystery and intrigue: "Never were so many assorted felonies committed in a simple American small town. Murder, drug peddling, racehorse kidnapping, diamond smuggling, medical malpractice, big-time auto theft, even (in the 1940s) the hijacking of strategic materials and espionage, all were conducted with Bayport as a nucleus."[13] With so much in common, the boys are so little differentiated that one commentator facetiously describes them thus: "The boys' characters basically broke down this way - Frank had dark hair; Joe was blond." In general, however, "Frank was the thinker while Joe was more impulsive, and perhaps a little more athletic."The two boys are infallibly on good terms with each other and never engage in sibling rivalry, with the exception of the New Hardy Boys Casefiles series
