        White Wings

      New York: Boni & Liveright. 1927. First. First edition. Introduction by Donald Ogden Stewart. Fine in very near fine dustwrapper but for a small chip on the crown, but with the primarily white jacket bright and fresh. The exceptionally scarce jacket is of interest in its own right as it contains blurbs from Robert Benchley, Edna Ferber, Sidney Howard, Marc Connelly, George Gershwin and several other notables. A fantasy for the stage based on a passage in Mr. and Mrs. Haddock Abroad, a humorous book by Barry's friend Donald Ogden Stewart, the expatriate novelist and screenwriter. Barry and Stewart were longtime friends and collaborators. Stewart won an Oscar for his screenplay based on Barry's Philadelphia Story, as well as starred in another Barry play, Holiday, where he played a character based on himself. According to Brendan Gill: "Stewart received much praise for his skill in depicting himself." .

        Nikiforos Fokas (In Greek).

      Athena 1927 - First edition. Octavo, original wrappers. Signed by Nikos Kazantzakis. In good condition, with the signatures originally bound, but lacking the spine. A very rare, early work by Kazantzakis. A precursor to the author's work "The Last Temptation." "The play Nikifóros Fokss, written in first draft in 1915, shows Kazantzakis assimilating Christian materials to a basically aesthetic philosophy in order to develop a "metachristian" world-view that treats our futile presence on earth. This metachristian view replaces the Christian assurance that happiness comes from the observance of certain precepts of behavior that lead to the reward of heavenly bliss; it holds, instead, that one may achieve happiness-indeed "salvation"-by contemplating the spectacle of life's unfolding phenomena. The major theological change is the denial of an afterlife. Kazantzakis's Nikiforos gains a sense that death is final. What he must avoid is the panic that such a realization causes in weaker souls. The key scene in which the transformation of the legend occurs is a dream-vision in which Fokas is visited by Christ and, in dialogue with him, begins to formulate his new world-view."

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

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1927 - 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.
