        Life, Travels and Reminiscences of Jonathan Ceredig Davies

      Llanddewi Brefi: Privately Printed,, 1927. Author of "Folk lore of West and Mid. Wales," and many other works. Octavo. Original red cloth, spine lettered in gilt, edges sprinkled red. With 9 pages of text in manuscript, and other manuscript notes and corrections to plates and text. The parcel post wrapper is tipped-in to the front free endpaper, press reviews of the book mounted to the rear blank and rear free endpaper, and customs form and 3 autograph letters are loosely inserted. Portrait frontispiece, 16 plates and illustrations in text. Boards a little soiled, spine and front board faded, lower tips bumped, lower fore edge dented. A good copy. One of 70 copies only printed by the author at his own printing-press for private circulation. This copy is inscribed "yours sincerely, J. Ceredig Davies" on the frontispiece, and was sent to Davies's cousin the Hon. Dan W. Williams, who is mentioned (though misnamed, as Williams comments in the margin) on page 5 as part of the global diaspora of Davies's Welsh family. Davies was an observant traveller, and here he gives an interesting and well-written account of his lifetime of travels, beginning with a voyage to Patagonia in 1875 as a boy of 16, attracted by the Welsh colony established in the Chubut Valley in 1865, and also to Australia. Begun during the Great War, it took him the better part of a decade to print, as "his press was only a toy" (according to the letter to the book's recipient from Mrs D. D. Evans, a mutual cousin). The printing is accordingly unsophisticated but charming—he ran out of sheets and so 9 pages are supplied in ink manuscript, with occasional corrections and passages added in manuscript. Largely self-taught, Davies's most important work was Folk Lore of West and Mid-Wales (1911); he also wrote Western Australia: Its History and Progress (1902), Adventures in the Land of Giants: a Patagonian Tale (1892), and Patagonia: A Description of the Country and Manner of Living at Chubut Colony (1892). His final work—also privately printed—was Welsh and Oriental Languages (1927), a 44 page offprint taken from the present text. Somewhat eccentric, at the time of sending the book he was 70 years old, living hermit-like in Mill Street "quite dirty and poor" (D. D Evans's letter). The press review mounted at the rear states: "It is difficult to classify Jonathan Ceredig Davies … He is certainly an interesting psychological study, for there is no one like him on this side of the Unknown" (Western Mail). Laid in are three autograph letters: one from the author to the recipient; another from a mutual relation of the author and cousin; and another from a further relation of the cousin. Williams has summarised the letters in manuscript to the front pastedown. The author writes that he sent Williams "the only copy I could spare … The only other copy of my book is to be found in the Congress Library." An excellent and highly personal copy of this rare and interesting account. Copac lists six copies (three in Wales and none outside the United Kingdom), and OCLC adds one copy at the University of Toronto. The book is notably unrepresented in Australia itself, where much of the action takes place.

      Barelona: Tipografia la Academia, 1927 xxxii+539 pages with diagrams. Octavo (8 1/2" x 6 1/4") bound red leather with black label and gilt lettering to spine. Preface by Johann Burger. (Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana:2213) 1st edition. Henri Rinck was a French chess study composer, considered one of the most important early figures in the field. He was born in Lyon (France) on January 10, 1870, where his family were brewers (Brasserie Rinck). He graduated as a chemical engineer at the Technische Hochschule of Munich (Germany). He then worked at the Faculté des Sciences in Lyon as an assistant of Dr. Barbier. In 1897 he discovered a refining process for green vegetable oils, which was applied in Marseille (France), then by several olive oil refineries in Spain. In 1900 he set up a factory in Badalona (Spain) and lived there with his family. Before the end of the Spanish civil war he had to leave Spain. He established himself in Marseille, but returned to Spain later. His first chess endgame studies appeared from 1902 in the Deutsche Schachzeitung. In 1909 he published the first collection 150 fins de partie (with an introduction by Johann Berger). A second edition followed in 1913, and in 1919 300 fins de partie' and in 1927 700 fins de partie". In 1947 he published Las sorpresas de la teoria (The Surprises of Theory), containing 111 endgames on rook against two minor pieces, and, together with Louis Malpas, Dame contre tour et cavalier (Queen Against Rook and Night). Rinck died in Badalona on February 17, 1952. Six days before his death he was handed out the first copy of his ultimate collection 1414 fins de partie.

        The World Crisis, 1916-1918, Volumes I & II

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1927. First U.S. edition, first printing. Hardcover. Near fine/Near fine. This is a jacketed U.S. first edition set of the 1916-1918 volumes of Churchill's acclaimed history of the First World War. Churchill's history - which he titled "The World Crisis" - was published in six volumes between 1923 and 1931. The U.S. is the true first edition, as U.S. Volume I publication preceded the British. 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 these two 1916-1918 volumes include Churchill's time at the Front and his return to the Cabinet. Today, jacketed first editions are quite scarce - jacketed U.S. editions even more so. Charles Scribner's Sons originally issued the 1916-1918 volumes as a two-volume set. This set is in excellent condition, near fine in near fine dust jackets. The maroon, ribbed cloth bindings are simply immaculate as only jacketed copies can be - vividly bright, perfectly square, and showing no discernible wear. The contents remain crisp and bright and feel unread, with no previous ownership marks and no age-toning. The sole minor detraction that prevents our grading the volumes as truly fine is modest spotting to the page edges, mostly confined to the top edges. The dust jackets are entirely complete, with no losses or tears and retaining the original "$10.00 | Two Volumes" front flap prices. The jackets show light soiling, and even toning to the spines. Both dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.1(III-1&2).a, Woods/ICS A31(aa), Langworth p.103.

On that bush was one bud plucked it and went to the old man Burrough's grave layed it on the tombstone remarking at the time a good old man."

A fine copy in bright, very good plus four-color pictorial dust. jacket with light shelf wear at edges, tiny chip and associated 20 mm. closed tear at lower front flap fold, tiny circular chip from front. panel, light rubbing to front panel, and mild dust soiling to spine. and rear panels. Overall a nice example of the uncommon jacket.. (#130587). First edition. "One of the most distinctive volumes of American weird fiction, all of which were based on nightmares of the author, a classics teacher in the Baltimore area and a longtime sufferer from migraine ("sick headaches," as he called them) who killed himself after the death of his beloved wife. (He wrote an adoring memoir of her in his 1932 semi- autobiography, Matrimony). White wrote fiction in the summer to supplement his income, his most successful work being the solid but now rather dull works of historical fiction. Another motive, for the stories, was to get them out of his system. All of the stories in this collection have an unforced strangeness to them that is emblematic of their origins. The title story, anthologized twenty-three times according to Ashley and Contento, is fairly well known, but all of the others are worth reading as well. There is nothing else quite like this stuff. It is doubly unusual for its period, when American fiction underwent a divorce between the slicks and the pulps. White's nightmare stories were too grotesque for the slicks, and too "literary" for the pulps. Like the work of many another genius they turned out to be better suited for posterity than for his own time." Ashley, Who's Who in Horror and Fantasy Fiction, p. 182.
