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

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1927 - 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.

        Photo Album - BRAZIL - Voyage to South America

      South America 1927 - Brazil, 1927. Photographs of a voyage to Brazil on the RMS Franconia, features vivid, nostalgic images from the end of the Old Republic, which was also a time of increasing social movements, and the dawn of revival. Qto. Oblong album, recent green cloth 3 post binding with label, contains 71 photographs measuring approximately 4.75 x 3.75 inches, captioned in manuscript, mounted onto 9 grey cardstock leaves. (52 photographs of Brazil, 3 of Montevideo, 15 of Martinique) Occasional mild sun fading, otherwise in very good condition, with crisp and captivating images. The era in which these travellers arrived in Brazil is known as the Old Republic (1889-1930), the First Brazilian Republic or República Velha, which ended in 1930 with a military coup that installed Getúlio Vargas as dictator. Claiming to be a constitutional democracy though democracy was nominal, positive developments were still made. Under the Old Republic, for example, growth in urban middle sectors was achieved in spite of battles against entrenched oligarchy. Growing trade, commerce, and industry in São Paulo undermined the the republic's politics dominated by the landed gentries of the coffee industry. The same was achieved in Minas Gerais, which was politically dominated by dairy interests. The divergence of interests was intensifying between the coffee oligarchs who were devastated by the Depression, and the burgeoning urban sectors. The 1920s revolt against the seating of Artur da Silva Bernardes as president signaled the beginning of a struggle by the urban bourgeoisie to seize power from the coffee-producing oligarchy. Subsequqently, disparate social reform movements would increase in the 1920s, ultimately culminating in the Revolution of 1930.

        The Unpublished Letters of Charles Dickens to Mark Lemon

      London - Halton and Truscott Smith, Ltd. 1927 - A limited edition copy of this volume, containing the letters of Charles Dickens to Mark Lemon, playwright and founder of Punch magazine, from 1847 to 1870. Mark Lemon's friendship with Charles Dickens was a close and long-lasting one. Although he contributed to Bentley's Miscellany while Dickens was editor, it is unlikely that the two men met until after the first issue of Punch appeared. In April 1843 Lemon was formally invited to dinner by Dickens and their friendship grew. Lemon and Punch stalwart Gilbert Beckett adapted Dickens's Chimes for the Adelphi in February 1844. The Haunted Man followed in 1848. A shared passion for amateur theatricals cemented their friendship. Lemon appeared as Brainworm and Dickens as Bobadil in Jonson's Every Man in his Humour, which played at the Royalty and at the St James Theatre in the autumn of 1845. The production was transferred to Manchester and Liverpool in the summer of 1847, and in the following year the play was revived in London, alternating with The Merry Wives of Windsor, in which Lemon appeared as Falstaff alongside Dickens. During the more lengthy provincial tour that followed Lemon and Dickens supplemented their Shakespearian repertoire with roles in various farces. In a campaign to raise funds for the Guild of Literature and Art, Lemon and Dickens appeared again in Jonson's play at Lytton's Knebworth in November 1850, and in the following May, after a performance in Lytton's Not So Bad As We Seem, Lemon joined Dickens in Mr Nightingale's Diary, a piece that they had co-written. Further provincial tours followed late in 1851 and in 1852. Lemon also took part in productions at Dickens's small private theatre in Tavistock House, notably in Wilkie Collins's melodramas The Lighthouse and The Frozen Deep. Lemon and his family had become frequent visitors to Dickens's home since the latter had moved to Tavistock House in November 1851, though the new neighbours were already fellow members of a weekly walking club, had taken nocturnal strolls around London together, and had been on excursions, such as a tour of Salisbury Plain in 1848. In the following year Dickens submitted his one and only contribution to Punch (an attack on the suburban water supply), but Lemon deemed it unsuitable. The end of Lemon's long friendship with Dickens came in 1858 when Lemon neglected to publish in Punch his friend's proclamation outlining the reasons for a separation from his wife, Catherine, who had been advised by Lemon. The two men were eventually reconciled in 1867. Including four folded facsimiles of the letters. This edition was printed ina limited quantity of five hundred and twenty-five, so this is a very rare edition. Condition: In a cloth binding with marbled boards. Externally, very smart, with just some minor shelfwear only. Internally, tightly bound. The pages are very bright and clean, with virtually no spotting at all. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED.

The information "A Play with a Message" has been added over an original line (that seems like it might have been misspelled). An influential play by Karel Capek, which premiered in Prague in 1921, most famous now for introducing the word "robot" (derived from the Czech noun "robota" meaning "labor"). The play, in which androids who are at first content to work for their human creators decide to rebel, made its U.S. premiere in 1922 and supposedly Spencer Tracy made his stage debut as one of the robots in an early American production.

Rich colours and delicate, graceful lines depict beautifully the elegance of the hanging flower. The excellent quality of framing and pristine condition makes this print especially desirable. Walter Joseph Phillips (October 25, 1884 – July 5, 1963) was an English-born Canadian painter and woodcutter, acclaimed as one of Canada's most famous printmakers and for popularizing the colour woodcut in the style of the Japanese. His artistic career spanned from the 1900s through the 1940s, during which time his work was exhibited throughout North America and Great Britain. In 1940 he was asked to become a resident artist at the Banff Centre, then known as the Banff School of Fine Arts, where he played an important role in the development of their visual arts program- It's Walter Phillips Gallery, which focuses on contemporary art, is named after him. The Glenbow Museum in Calgary, Alberta holds an extensive collection of Phillips works and a research archive..

        TO THE LIGHTHOUSE. With TLS on Monk's House Stationary Dated 3rd Jan. 1928.

      Hogarth Press, London 1927 - Woolf, Virginia. TO THE LIGHTHOUSE. London: The Hogarth Press, 1927. First Edition of Virginia Woolf's fifth novel. "In writing To The Lighthouse, Woolf consciously used her own childhood memories of summer vacations in St. Ives, Cornwall, at Talland House (from where she could see the Godrevy Lighthouse) and drew portraits of her parents, Leslie Stephen and Julia Prinsep Stephen, in the figures of Mr. and Mrs. Ramsay. Woolf noted in her Diary, "to have father's character done complete in it; & mother's; & St. Ives; & childhood; & all the usual things I try to put in - life, death, & c". Hussey, Mark. 8vo. 320 pp. A fine copy in blue cloth, gilt titles to the spine in a lovely example of the Vanessa Bell designed dustwrapper showing modest use, a few tiny small pink stains and a modest fade to the spine panel. An excellent example. With a TLS on Monk's House stationary dated 3rd Jan. 1928 laid-in. "Dear Sir, I am sorry that I cannot arrange to sit to you as you ask me, but I am staying down here in the country. Yours faithfully/Virginia Woolf". It is well-documented that Woolf disliked sitting for photographers or artists and it wasn't until 1930 that she finally agreed to sit for Stephen Tomlin whose 1931 bust of her is in the garden at Monk's House and the National Gallery, the original at Charleston.

        Revolt in the Desert

      London, Jonathan Cape, , 1927. Quarto. Original quarter brown pigskin on sand buckram, title gilt to spine, top edge gilt, others untrimmed Coloured portrait frontispiece and 10 other similar plates, 8 uncoloured plates, folding map at the rear. Rubbed at extremities with small worn spots at the ends of the spine, edges of boards faded, spotting to endpapers, map toned. A very good copy. First English edition, large paper issue, limited to 315 numbered copies, of which 300 were for sale. The costs for production of the 1926 Seven Pillars of Wisdom had ballooned to such an extent that Lawrence was contemplating selling either his library or some of his property to clear the debt. Eventually he settled on an abridgement, undertaken in 1926 by Lawrence himself with the help of some of his fellow servicemen, an earlier attempt by Edward Garnett having been set aside. Published in March 1927 in Great Britain and America, in both limited and general issues, three impressions were soon sold out and two more quickly added. The profits from this publication made the fortunes of the Cape publishing house.
