        LEAVES FROM MY LIFE - Reminiscences by the famous Manipulative Surgeon

      Hutchinson & Co. (Publishers) LTD., Pasternoster Row, London, EC 1927 - The original dust jacket houses this book. It states to the front cover: In a long review "The Medical Press" said: "To break down the barriers of legally - entrenched orthodoxy and attain to wealth and titular distiction while still young enough to enjoy his success, is in any field a remarkable performance; in the field of medicine it is almost miraculous. Disraeli's conquest of the proudest aristocracy in Europe almost pales in comparison. . . Sir Herbert Barker has accomplished a social tour de force, and his very restrained account of it all is a valuable contribution to a certain side of the history of his time." There is a 2 inch chip to the rear top of the dustjacket. Few small chips to the extremities in general. Repaired to rearside. Now housed in a removable archival sleeve. Red cloth boards, with faded colour in general. Firmly bound to inner page block. There are sixteen full page illustrations and these are all present. Light browning to pages, otherwise all pages are clean and tightly bound. - Thanks for your interest and I hope you like the book enough to buy it. - Regards from Arabella.

        The Erechtheum Measured, Drawn, and Restored By Gorham Phillips Stevens (Text and Plates)

      First Edition by Harvard University Press for The American School of Classical Studies, Cambridge, Mass.: 1927. Both volumes of this two volume set are in very good+ condition in dark blue cloth covered boards with gilt text on the spine and on the front board together with a gilt seal for The American School of Classical Studies at Athens. The Plates volume is a large folio measuring 21" by 15" with ribbon ties. There are two small 1/4" areas at the head and heel of the spine where the cloth is worn through and the same is true at the lower tips of the boards and there is an assortment of small, faint stains to the covers. The first free end page is wrinkled and shows three1/3" repaired closed tears at its lower edge. The text volume is a quarto measuring 12" by 9" with the spine slanted and with foxing to the front end sheets and a 1" square tape repair to the lower fore corner of the free end page. There is a small rent to the cloth on the front board above the second "H" in the word "Erechtheum". Faint spots of foxing are also present around all edges of the text block. Both volumes are signed in pencil by the author at the bottom edge of the title page. The Plates volume is unpaginated, but contains all 54 plates as called for in the nine page "Description of Plates". The plates in this volume are not loose as they have been in other copies seen. Instead, they are all bound-into what was the original chemise and modified to a case binding. The Text volume contains 673 pages including an extensive general index, indices for Greek and Latin Authors and Inscriptions, Greek Words, and Proper Names in the Inscriptions. This volume is illustrated with 236 line drawings and black and white photographs. Interestingly, the printed page 21/22 is missing replaced by the previous owner, and author, by two, typewritten pages with the complete text for the missing pages as well as two black and white photographs to replace the images missing in the printed version. World Cat and OCLC show only 41 copies of this set in libraries world wide.

        The Three-Cornered Hat

      London - Gerald Howe Ltd, 1927. London - Gerald Howe Ltd, 1927 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Hardbound volume in black cloth covered boards with gilt detailing to the spine and front board. Pedro Antonio de Alarcn y Ariza (10 March 1833 - 19 July 1891) was a Spanish author, writer and political figure. He is best remembered today for his comic novel El Sombrero de Tres Picos (The Three-cornered Hat), (1874), one of the most popular works in Spanish Literature. In 1919, the Spanish composer Manuel de Falla adapted Alarcn's tale into a famous ballet of the same name. Alarcn based The Three Cornered Hat on a traditional Spanish ballad. He also had a dog he called Alhambra, after the moorish palace built in Granada, Andalucia in Spain. His humorous story describes the confusion that occurs when a miller believes his wife has been having an affair with the mayor of the village. The story provides a lively picture of village life in Alarcn's native region of Andalusia. Condition: The binding is tight and firm with both covers and all pages securely attached. There is little wear to the extremities, just some minor bumping to the top and tail of the spine. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright with the occasional handling mark. The blank endpapers are slightly age-toned. The pages are uncut. Overall the volume is innear fine condition..

        The Women at Point Sur

      New York: Boni & Liveright, 1927. New York: Boni & Liveright, 1927 First edition, first printing. Inscribed by Jeffers to the front free endpaper: "Inscribed for James Hopper and Mattie Hopper, / with some memories of a friendship that dates / from our first year in Carmel. / With affectionate good wishes, / Robinson Jeffers. / Tor House, Carmel, California / July, 1927". Publisher's black cloth over purple boards, lettered in gilt; in the original salmon dust jacket, lettered in green and dark red. Near fine, with some light wear to the extremities, a hint of vertical creasing to the spine, a hint of spotting to the rear pastedown, otherwise bright and clean pages; unclipped dust jacket, with some wear and minor chipping to the extremities, short losses to the spine head and top corners, some toning to the spine, light rubbing to the hinges, a hint of spotting to the otherwise bright and clean panels, small hole to the top edge of the rare panel not affecting the lettering. A bright and pleasing copy. This copy is inscribed by Robinson Jeffers to his friend and fellow author James M. Hopper. Jeffers inscribed this volume at Tor House, the home he built for his family in Carmel-by-the-Sea in California and the location at which he wrote the majority of his novels. Both Jeffers and Hopper, along with their contemporaries George Sterling, Upton Sinclair, Sinclair Lewis, and Jack London, were part of the group of authors that helped establish Carmel as a literary and artistic refuge in Monterey County. Although neither was a native of California, both Jeffers and Hopper ultimately settled in Carmel. The Women at Point Sur is Jeffers' longest and most ambitious work - "a magnificent narrative almost as long as a novel, fully as interesting as any novel can be, and infinitely more stirring to the mind and senses than any prose." In addition to the titular poem, this volume contains a prologue, which is also written in poetic verse. Unlike many of his other works, The Women at Point Sur is laden with the philosophies of Friedrich Nietzsche.. Inscribed by Author. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.
