        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

It was several years ago, in Mysore, during a tiger drive. I was sitting most insecurely in a banyan-tree, balancing on the top rung of a very high and shaky ladder, when suddenly, with a tremendous rustling, a peacock flew directly over my head its breast a starling emerald green, its great tail outspread, catching and holding the sunlight in its hundred golden eyes."

        Autograph Letter Signed ("Eric Gill" and "E.G."), to John Gideon Wilson of J. & E. Bumpus Bookshop in London

      Villa des Palmiers, Salies-de-Béarn, France, 1927. 2 pp., in green ink. 4to. Some wrinkling, closed tear to blank margin, slight toning, old folds. 2 pp., in green ink. 4to. With architectural drawings and referencing Troilus & Criseyde. Gill writes to his friend, J.G. Wilson of the Bumpus Bookshop in London, regarding his engraving, "Flying Buttresses," mentioning his work on Troilus & Criseyde for the Golden Cockerel Press, and mentioning another of his publishers. An excellent technical letter with 5 small drawings in the text. In part: "I am working like anything on the engravings for the Golden Cockerel Troilus & Criseyde. I expect to finish the engravings by about Easter ... I shall come and see you as soon as possible to talk over things and explain how it happened that D. Cleverdon is publishing my next ... Meanwhile this is just to make a brief apology for myself in the matter of the Buttresses! Is matter of fact they aren't so blooming wrong in the engraving as your correspondent thinks. It's the perspective which makes the difficulty." The engraving in question is "Flying Buttresses," based on a drawing of St. Pierre, Chartes, used to illustrated Gil's 1926 essay "Id Quod Visum Placet." Gil uses the rest of the letter to explain, with the aid of five small sketches, why the perspective is in fact correct. Douglas Cleverdon, the Bristol bookseller and publisher, brought out Gill's Art and Love in 1927, as well as a collection of his engravings in 1929.

INSCRIBED and SIGNED on the the front endpaper: "For Mrs. Isaacs/with the affection/of one of her/boys/Thornton/Lawrenceville/November/1927." The recipient appears to be Edith Isaacs, editor of THEATRE ARTS magazine, whom Wilder befriended in the early 1920s while teaching at the Lawrenceville School in New Jersey. Isaacs offered much encouragement to Wilder, including recommending that he apply for a Guggenheim Fellowship in order to finish THE BRIDGE OF SAN LUIS REY, for which he was declined. Briefest of wear to the spine tips of the book. Dustwrapper with a long closed tear along the front flap joint (neatly masked by the mylar protector), chips at the spine tips but not affecting the lettering, and general edgewear with the spine darkened. About Fine in a scarce, Very Good example of the dustwrapper [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
