        TO THE LIGHTHOUSE

      1927. [a handsome copy] London: Published by Leonard & Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press, 1927. Original blue cloth. First Edition of one of Virginia Woolf's best-known novels. It is a prime example of Woolf's stream-of-consciousness technique, as Marcel Proust and James Joyce had recently pioneered; with little dialogue or action (it relates to visits of the Ramsay family to the Isle of Skye during the 1910s), the novel consists of much philosophical introspection, especially relating to childhood emotions.~This is a close-to-fine copy (spine very slightly dusty -- not nearly as dull as usual; minor foxing to only the page edges). TO THE LIGHTHOUSE in a nice example of its dust jacket has become a $20,000+ book, so the novel without a jacket has become a reasonable alternative for many collectors. Kirkpatrick A10a; Connolly's Modern Movement #54 ("the height of her luminous impressionist vision"); #15 on the Modern Library list of the 100 best novels of the 20th Century.

Blaricum: De Waelburgh, 1927. |~||~||~||~| A delightful Dutch illustrated book reflecting a mixture of the effects of De Stijl, Cubism and the Bauhaus, where she had gone to work in 1927. Loeber was born in Holland in 1894 and had a long and productive life, but this would appear to be the only book she illustrated. Not in any of the standard references.

        A Map of Honolulu and the Sandwich Islands which we now call the Hawaiian Islands

      New York.: Henry M. Snyder.. 1927.. Color pictorial map poster, 27 1/8 x 35 3/8 on sheet 28 3/8 x 36 1/2 inches, early linen backing. Tackhole in each corner and to the middle of each edge, overall toning, scattered foxing, some creases from rolling. A pictographic bird's eye view style street map of Honolulu is surrounded by a border of pictures relating to the history, customs, natural history and scenery of the islands. Decorative cartouche at upper left reads, "In this map you will find depicted in Pictorial Fashion the history, land-marks & customs of these colorful Isles." There is an inset map (9 x 11 3/4 inches) showing the Hawaiian Islands, and small inset images of the Palace Square and Schofield Barracks. This beautiful map was designed by Alexander Samuel MacLeod (1888-1956) who worked in the art departments of various Hawaii magazines and newspapers when he arrived in Hawaii in the 1920s; he also pursued a career as a painter and lithographer. A stunning design packed with interesting information and attractive images. One of the late 1920s decorative maps with a clear debt to the work of MacDonald Gill. This map is more commonly seen folded; this copy was apparently issued flat. .

        Preliminary Drawing for Treasure Island

      Preliminary pencil and watercolour drawing for 'Treasure Island' by Dulac, n.d. but circa 1927, mounted, framed and glazed, approximately 185mm x 220mm in size, with the image 115mm x 150mm. This one is 'Bristol', inscribed 'to Marius Winslow from Edmund Dulac' to bottom left hand corner. Dulac's Treasure Island was published in 1927, with Hughey noting that the twelve watercolours in the book, "show a new Dulac style. Here he uses pale misty colours and creates little miniature gems of 18th century scenes ... The detailing and design of the pictures present some of Dulac's most careful and superb painting. He himself liked these illustrations best of all of his work" (Hughey, Edmund Dulac - His Book Illustrations: A Bibliography). Signed by Artist. First Edition. Framed and Glazed. Very Good. Illus. by Dulac, Edmund. 8vo. Original Artwork.

        John Apostate. An Idyl of the Quays

      The Seven Acres Press, Long Crendon, Buckinghamshire 1927 - Title within a woodcut architectural border, six woodcut vignettes, 11 woodcut initials and one woodcut tail-piece, the first two words of the text printed in red. 8vo. [213 x 155 x 14 mm]. [1]f, 10, [4] pp. Bound by Loyd Haberly in blue goatskin over thick boards, the covers with a border of two blind fillets and dots extending over the spine and blind fillets and palmettes either side of the bands, the spine lettered downwards in gilt in the second, third and fourth panels, and blind palmettes in the first and fifth, plain endleaves, untrimmed edges. (Slightly marked). Number 51 of 125 copies, signed by Haberly. The binding is unsigned but Haberly was in the habit of binding copies of his own works and this has characteristic features, such as the heavy boards and rather rustic finishing. So Haberly wrote, illustrated, printed and bound this book. Loyd Haberly was an Oregonian, from a poor background, who went to Harvard, where he eventually became a lecturer in International Law. He came to England as a Rhodes Scholar, and took a law degree at Trinity College, Oxford. He learned the rudiments of printing, binding and engraving at evening classes and from Emery Walker, and then personally constructed the building which housed his Seven Acres Press at Long Crendon in 1925. He explained the venture: "I took up printing as being a pleasant country craft affording a practical means of publishing my own writings and woodcuts, and inducing the profitable study of early and rare printed books". In 1934 Haberly stepped in as Controller of the Gregynog Press (where they had assumed him to be a Welshman), and remained for two years. During this time he supervised the press's production of Xenephon's Cyrupaedia, Bridge's Eros and Psyche and his own collection, Anne Boleyn and Other Poems. [Attributes: First Edition]

        MOSQUITOES - RICHARD HUGHES' COPY

      New York: Boni & Liveright, 1927. First American Edition. First Printing, published in a small run of 3,047 copies. Octavo; navy blue cloth, with titles stamped in yellow on spine and front panel; blue and white-patterned endpapers; dustjacket; 349pp. Light dust soil to upper edge of text, with some trivial rubbing to cloth at spine ends and "Chatto + Windus" written in an unknown hand in blue colored pencil at the top of the title page; Near Fine. First Issue dustjacket is unclipped, heavily sunned at spine, and a bit less so along flap folds, with some shallow chipping to spine ends and corner tips; Very Good+. Housed in a custom slipcase and chemise. An extraordinary association copy, which belonged to Welsh novelist Richard Hughes, and bearing his bookplate on the front pastedown. Hughes was instrumental in bringing Faulkner to the attention of the London firm Chatto & Windus, who published his first novel, 'Soldier's Pay,' in June of 1930. At the time, Faulkner was entirely unknown in England, and little-known or regarded in the U.S. Hughes wrote introductions to the British editions of 'Soldier's Pay,' 'The Sound and the Fury,' and 'Mosquitoes,' and can easily be credited with bringing Faulkner's writing to the attention of the English-speaking world. An honest copy, with a superb association. Petersen A4b.

        ZÉNO (CONFESSIONS OF ZENO)

      Paris: Gallimard, 1927. First French Edition. First Impression, one of 850 numbered copies printed for le Amis de l'Edition Originale, this being copy no.343. Octavo; printed wrappers; 368 pages. Hint of sunning to spine, with a trace of light foxing scattered through the preliminary pages; majority of the signatures uncut; about Fine. Svevo self-published the novel in Italy in 1923, where it went largely unnoticed. The novel would likely have vanished into obscurity if it were not for the efforts of Svevo's friend James Joyce, who championed the work and, using his Parisian contacts, helped to have the novel translated into French and published by Gallimard in 1927. The French First precedes both English translations of the novel by three years. A superb copy of one of the great Italian novels of the last century, and reportedly Joyce's favorite book.

        The World Crisis: 1916-1918, Part II

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1927. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is a jacketed British first edition, first printing of the fourth volume of Churchill's history of the First World War, The World Crisis. Of The World Crisis, Churchill bibliographer Frederick Woods wrote: "The volumes contain some of Churchill's finest writing, weaving the many threads together with majestic ease, describing the massive battles in terms which fitly combine relish of the literary challenge with an awareness of the sombre tragedy of the events." Churchill was in a special position to write this history, having served both in the Cabinet and on the Front. He served as First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 until 1915. After the failure in the Dardanelles and the slaughter at Gallipoli Churchill was scapegoated and forced to resign. Rather remarkably, he spent part of his political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Before war's end, Churchill was exonerated and rejoined the Government, but the stigma would linger. Churchill may have meant for his history of the First World War to clear his name, but his six volume masterwork far exceeds this purpose. The events of the 1916-1918 volumes include Churchill's time at the Front and his return to the Cabinet. Many consider the British edition aesthetically superior to the U.S., with its larger volumes and shoulder notes summarizing the subject of each page. British first edition dust jackets are not only extremely scarce, but notoriously brittle, particularly those for the 1916-1918 volumes. Individual jacketed volumes are rarely seen or offered outside of full, six-volume sets. Here is a near fine first printing of 1916-1918, Part II in the correct, first printing dust jacket. The blue cloth boards remain unusually clean and free of scuffing, befitting a jacketed copy. The binding remains tight with sharp corners, bright spine gilt, and only trivial wear to corners and spine ends. We note a slight inward warp to the front cover. The contents remain crisp and bright with no previous ownership marks. The volume feels unread. Spotting is modest for the edition, primarily confined to the first and final leaves and the page edges. The first printing dust jacket shows shallow chipping to a maximum depth of 3/8 inch at the spine ends and edges. Shelf presentation is quite respectable, with an evenly-toned but otherwise clean dust jacket spine. A clean split all along the front hinge nearly disappears beneath the removable, archival quality clear dust jacket protector, as do partial splits at the flap folds.

        The World Crisis, 1916-1918, Volumes I & II, immaculate jacketed first editions in the very rare publisher's slipcase

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1927. First U.S. edition, first printing. Hardcover. We are pleased to offer Churchill collectors a rarity - a beautifully-preserved, jacketed U.S. first edition set of the 1916-1918 volumes of Churchill's The World Crisis in the rare original publisher's slipcase. The World Crisis is Winston Churchill's epic history of the First World War, in which he played such a critical, controversial, and varied role. Churchill was in a special position to write this history, having served both in the Cabinet and on the Front. First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 until 1915, after the failure in the Dardanelles and the slaughter at Gallipoli, Churchill was scapegoated and forced to resign. He spent political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Before war's end, Churchill was exonerated and rejoined the Government, but the stigma would linger. Churchill may have meant for his history of the First World War to clear his name, but his six volume masterwork far exceeds this purpose. The U.S. is the true first edition, as U.S. Volume I publication preceded the British. Both the U.S. and British editions were originally published as six individual volumes between 1923 and 1931. Today, jacketed first editions are quite scarce - jacketed U.S. editions even more so. Scarcer still is the original U.S. publisher's slipcase for the 1916-1918 first editions; Charles Scribner's Sons originally issued the two 1916-1918 volumes as a boxed set in a cardboard slipcase. The few slipcases we have seen previously bear three pasted labels. A large, 8.25 x 5.75 inch label printed dark red on ivory on the right side of the slipcase bears an extensive blurb about Churchill and the work. A smaller label on the upper spine of the slipcase, likewise printed dark red on ivory, measures 4 x 3.25 inches and bears the title, author, and publisher. A bright orange promotional label on the lower portion of the slipcase spine measuring 3.75 x 3 inches bears black ink print advertising Churchill's preceding World Crisis volumes. This is the only slipcase we have ever seen without the third, orange advertisement label, likely indicating earlier precedence. These original jacketed and slipcased sets are quite rare and this is a beautiful example. The jackets are near fine plus - lovely and unclipped with just trivial edgewear (primarily incident to slipping in and out of the case). We note mild and uniform toning to the spines and some transfer browning to the two dust jacket faces that face the inner slipcase walls.  We have now fitted the dust jackets with removable, archival quality clear covers to guard against any further wear. The volumes are superlative, truly fine.  Both volumes are clearly unread with crisp, immaculate contents and no previous ownership marks. The fragile slipcase is entirely complete and shows only slight wear and soiling, mostly confined to the corners and the upper edge at the opening. The top left seam appears to have once been reinforced with some tape, leaving a thin strip of residue, but is nonetheless intact, having been carefully repaired with archival glue.

        The World Crisis, 1916-1918, Volumes I & II, immaculate jacketed first editions in the very rare publisher's slipcase

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1927. 1st Edition. Hardcover. As new/Fine. We are pleased to offer Churchill collectors a spectacular, jacketed U.S. first edition set of the 1916-1918 volumes of Churchill's The World Crisis in the extravagantly rare original publisher's slipcase. The World Crisis is Winston Churchill's epic history of the First World War, in which he played such a critical, controversial, and varied role. Churchill was in a special position to write this history, having served both in the Cabinet and on the Front. First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 until 1915, after the failure in the Dardanelles and the slaughter at Gallipoli, Churchill was scapegoated and forced to resign. He spent political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Before war's end, Churchill was exonerated and rejoined the Government, but the stigma would linger. Churchill may have meant for his history of the First World War to clear his name, but his six volume masterwork far exceeds this purpose. The U.S. is the true first edition, as U.S. Volume I publication preceded the British. Both the U.S. and British editions were originally published as six individual books between 1923 and 1931. Today, jacketed first editions are remarkably scarce - jacketed U.S. editions even more so. Perhaps most scarce is the original U.S. publisher's slipcase for the 1916-1918 first editions; Charles Scribner's Sons originally issued the two 1916-1918 volumes as a boxed set. The cardboard slipcase bears three pasted labels. A large, 8.25 x 5.75 inch label printed dark red on ivory on the right side of the slipcase bears an extensive blurb about Churchill and the work. A smaller label on the upper spine of the slipcase, likewise printed dark red on ivory, measures 4 x 3.25 inches and bears the title, author, and publisher. A bright orange label on the lower portion of the slipcase spine measuring 3.75 x 3 inches bears black ink print advertising Churchill's preceding World Crisis volumes. These original slipcases are almost never seen. We know of no other dealer who has offered a slipcased set. Here is an absolutely pristine, as new first edition set of the 1916-1918 volumes in fine dust jackets, housed in the original publisher's slipcase. The books themselves are as-new. The bindings are immaculate and improbably bright, with absolutely no wear or flaws to report. The contents are likewise pristine - unreservedly crisp, bright, and clean. The books are clearly unread and appear in virtually the same condition as when they were issued in 1927. We note only a tiny Boston bookseller sticker on the lower left ffep of each volume. The dust jackets are truly fine examples. Both are unclipped, retaining the "$10.00 Two Volumes" price on the front flap. Both jackets are entirely complete with no losses. Trivial flaws are limited to slight toning to the jacket spines, a hint of wear at the spine ends, and a faint one inch scratch to the Volume II lower spine (but no tear). We have fitted both dust jackets with removable, archival quality clear covers. The original publisher's slipcase has done its job protecting the spectacular books and dust jackets within, but has born some expected age and wear in the process. Nonetheless, the slipcase is entirely complete and still in one piece, with all three publisher's labels fully intact. Six of the eight seams are intact; only the short upper and lower horizontal seams at the back of the slipcase are split. There is wear at the opening edges, fraying at the split upper and lower rear seams, and light overall soiling. The slipcase is original and unrestored, but the seam splits are easily repaired with archival tape, at which point the slipcase will regain structural integrity. This beautiful slipcased set is a rare prize for collectors and about as early in the canon as a Churchill collector seeking jacketed first editions can reasonably expect to go.
