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

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1927. 1st Edition. Hardcover. As new/Fine. 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.

        The Life of Saint David (Gregynog)

      The Gregynog Press 1927. An edition limited to just 150 copies, 250*190 mm. In cream limp vellum. Spine with title in gilt. Internally, no inscriptions, [4], 41 pp, [3], 25 wood engravings, (hand coloured by Maynard and Bray), chapter openings in pale blue, initial letters in red and paragraph marks in red, drawn with a quill by HW Bray, a little browning to gutter of fep and rep only, pd's have risen slightly. House in its original card slipcase, title in white to red paper label. This binding represents the only use of vellum by the bindery and was not a material in which Fisher was familiar. The text, freely collated by Ernest Rhys, is based upon the Latin Life by Rhygyfarch (1057-1099) & upon the later lives. The picture of St. David on the title page was drawn from a brass, dated 1476, in Hereford Cathedral. Probably the most difficult Gregynog title to obtain. (Harrop 7) Robert Ashwin Maynard, Painter; Wood cutter and Illustrator and Horace Walter Bray, were at Gregynog from 1922 to 1930.

        The Life of Tim Healy [Signed]

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1927. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good +/very good. A Very Good + copy (some fading to spine and outer edges of front board, mild wear, paper clip rust stain to top of half-title mildly penetrating to face of each adjoining page), in a not quite Very Good dust jacket (edge wear, large chip to front panel, tape reinforcement to verso (inside edge) at spine ends and folds), SIGNED BY LIAM O'FLAHERTY on the front free endpaper; O'Flaherty's biography of Tim Healy (Timothy Michael Healy), the famed Irish nationalist politician, controversial Member of Parliament, and the first Governor-General of the Irish Free State (which at its creation comprised the entire island of Ireland). Liam O'Flaherty was one of the key Irish writers of the first half of the last century, and a major figure in the Irish literary renaissance. One of the scarcest, if not the scarcest, of all of O'Flaherty's books, quite uncommon with the book this nice, even more scarce in the dust jacket, quite scarce signed, and as scarce as hen's teeth when both in the dust jacket and signed. A Very Good copy, SIGNED BY LIAM O'FLAHERTY. QUITE SCARCE.

Und Brod schreibt in seinem Nachwort: « Es ist klar, dass der Roman mit dem «Prozess» und « Schloss» deren Reihe er (chronologisch) eröffnete, innig zusammenhängt.

        [UNTITLED BESTIARY]

      [Weimar?]. ca. 1927.. Twenty original signed woodcuts, plus a smaller woodcut on the upper wrapper. Folio (37 x 33.5 cm). Printed on folded Japanese paper, open sewn in paper over limp wrappers. Upper wrapper neatly detached, with chipping to wrapper covering and a small burn mark, internally fine. An impressive sequence of woodcuts of wild and domestic animals and birds (one with an additional color), each signed below the image in pencil by Klemm (1883- 1957). The front blank bears Klemm's 1927 gift inscription to his friend, fellow artist, woodcut master and illustrator, Emil Orlik, who he had met in Vienna. In 1913 Klemm joined the faculty at the Weimarer Kunsthochshule, and in the following decades illustrated a number of significant texts, along with producing individual prints and series. This series bears no explicit limitation, though a pencil shelf-number (?) appears in the corner of the first blank ('692/LXXV').

        Candide, or All for the best

      New York: Bennett Libraries, 1927. 8vo (23 cm; 9.25"). 2 vols. in 1. 182 pp., [4] ff., color plates. Sole edition illustrated by Clara Tice, the illustrations numbering ten, printed in color, and definitely of an erotic nature. This copy (no. 130) is one of 250 copies "on special deckle-edge Pannekoek paper." The title-page, printed in black and red, announces this is an "Exact reprint of the earliest English text" and tells us that it was "printed in Holland by Joh. Enschede en Zonen for the Bennett Libraries, Inc." In the early decades of the 20th century, Tice was a sensation because of her provocative art and as the embodiment of bohemian Greenwich Village — gaining, indeed, the sobriquet "The Queen of Greenwich Village." Binding: Publisher's black goat, round spine with raised bands lettered in gilt and with a gilt-stamped female nude figure in center area of spine; front cover with two gilt-stamped reclining female nude figures reminiscent of those on big-rig mud guards! Elegant gilt turn-ins, top edge gilt and other edges deckle. Housed in a brown paper–covered open-back case. Case rubbed but sound; binding as above with spine a little pulled, corners a little bumped, and front joint (outside) a little abraded. First leaves separated and tipped in; possibly, cancels? All illustrations eye-popping in several senses; all tissue guards present.

        The First Part and the Second Part of the History of the Valorous and Wittie Knight-Errant Don-Quixote of the Mancha

      Chelsea: Chelsea, The Ashendene Press, , 1927–28. Translated out of the Spanish by Thomas Shelton MDCXII. 2 large folio volumes (430 × 308 mm). Publisher's full green morocco, spine in compartments with gilt titles direct. Printed in red and black in Ptolemy type; text in double columns; border and initials designed by Louise Powell and cut on wood by W. M. Quick and Geo. H. Ford. Nicks to bands and corners, but a lovely set, internally fine and in excellent condition. First Ashendene edition, one of 225 copies on Batchelor paper, out of a total edition of 245 copies. "First appearance of Ptolemy type. Ashendene knight-in-armour paper…taken as a single work Don-Quixote is the largest of the Ashendene books. It has an interesting alternative to Hewitt's drawn or printed initials, the successful but unrepeatable device of neo-Kelmscott initials, borders and opening words cut on wood from designs by Louise Powell. The new Ashendene type was imitated and adapted from the Geographia of Ptolemaeus, printed by Leonard Holle at Ulm in 1482. In two columns, with red used chiefly for headings and shoulder notes, decorated but not illustrated, this link with the Kelmscott past was an entirely successful venture" (Franklin, The Ashendene Press).

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

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1927 - Here is a jacketed U.S. first edition, first printing set of the two 1916-1918 volumes of Churchill's The World Crisis. This is Churchill's 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, containing what is regarded as some of Churchill's finest writing. The U.S. edition of The World Crisis is the true first, as U.S. 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 quite scarce - jacketed U.S. first editions even more so than their British counterparts. These two volumes - the third and fourth of the full six-volume set - include Churchill's time commanding a battalion at the front and his political rehabilitation and return to the Cabinet. Both books are very good plus in very good dust jackets, that by virtue of matching condition give every appearance of being an original pairing. The bindings are extremely clean, marked only by slight dulling to the bottom edges of the spines. The contents are clean and tight with no ownership marks. The untrimmed fore edges show the usual age-toning and the top edge shows some soiling and light spotting. Both dust jackets are unclipped, still bearing the "$10.00 Two Volumes" price on the front flaps. The front and rear faces of the Volume I jacket are clean and complete with just light age toning and minor wear at the corners. The Volume I jacket spine is toned with fractional chipping at the spine head and chipping to a maximum 3/8 inch depth at the tail. The Volume II dust jacket rear face is clean and complete with just a hint of age toning and minor wear at the corners. The front face of the dust jacket is slightly more toned (likely due to transfer browning from the slipcase in which it was originally issued), bears a few tiny dark spots, and has three 1/8 inch chips along the top edge (likely where the jacket long ago caught on the aforementioned slipcase). The Volume II jacket spine is toned with a 1/8 inch loss at the head of the spine, a 1/16 inch loss at the spine tail, and a 1/8 inch hole along the lower third of the rear hinge. Of note, the spine losses are small enough that the black rules at the head and tail remain intact. Both dust jackets are fitted with removable, archival quality clear covers.

        Evert Taube (1927).

      Blyertsteckning. Med signatur och påskrift i blyerts: "Variantskiss av Evert Taube 1927 / E Forseth". 28,5 x 22,5 cm. Enstaka veck och riss, en liten bläckfläck i vänster marginal. Monterad på ett större blad. Proveniens: Konstnärens familj till 2013. Variant av det laverade Taubeporträtt som avbildas i Einar Forseths minnesbok Mälardrottningens Gyllene sal. Mosaikbitar ur ett brokigt konstnärsliv (1973), s. 80, och snarast bättre än detta. Dess bildtext lyder: "Evert Taube, min ungdomskamrat på Göteborgs Handelstidnings ritbyrå, här tecknad 1927 som källaren Den Gyldene Fredens trubadur".. Om deras gemensamma historia berättar Forseth på s. 82-84. De två var nästan jämnåriga och träffades första gången på Göteborgs Handelstidnings ritbyrå 1908-1909, när Evert var 18, Forseth 16 år. "[Taube] var redan då en charmör och förledare. [...] Han fann snart ritbyråtillvaron alltför instängd och torftig. Redan då var han medveten om sina talanger som en benådad kavaljer och trubadur. En gång bad han att över en dag få låna min surt inbesparade tvåveckorslön på hela fjorton kronor, vilket han naturligtvis genast fick. Genom denna lättvindiga, spontana finansoperation möjliggjordes hans mönstring på den efterlängtade 'långseglare', som skulle föra honom ut på hans berömda färder jorden runt. I varje fall till de klassiska medelhavsländerna och sedan vidare ut på hans äventyrsfärder till Sydamerikas pampas, till gauchosadeln och Carmencitas bröst, totalt glömmande den lilla göteborgska ritbyrån och den handfallne kompisen, som fick suga på ramarna, när hans fattiga slantar flugit ut över jordklotet. Det skulle sedan dröja drygt tio år, innan vi återsågs i Stockholm. Det var när vår beundrade vän Anders Zorn förvärvat Den Gyldene Freden, som blev vårt mest kända stamlokus på den tiden. Vi och vår legendariske vän Jonas Lindh var de enda, som fick följa med Anders Zorn och hans arkitekt, Torsten Stubelius, ner i de gamla medeltida källarvalven, där sönderslagna tunnor, döda kattor och dynga låg i lager på varandra. [...] Det var där Evert Taube stiftade sin celebra orden 'Riddarna kring runda bordet' - salig i åminnelse - och genom sina lyckade ballader om 'bröder riddarna' gjorde dem så ofantligt populära. [...] Jag tror att Evert Taube och jag är de enda överlevande av dem som så festligt beskrivits i balladerna. [...] Denna Riddarbrödernas klang- och jubelperiod i Bellmans tecken varade en dekad, i varje fall så länge som vår generöse vän Gunnar Nylund stod för rusthållet på Freden under det glada tjugotalet. Under denna tid kom Evert Taube då och då upp till min söderbostad, sjöng och diktade vaggvisor för våra små grabbar, spelade på vår gamla Wienerflygel - och provade med välbehag mina fina slipsar. Så skildes våra vägar igen och han startade på allvar sitt seriösa författarskap, som ökade hans berömmelse år för år"

In the later 1920&#39;s, Graves&#39; writing style changed significantly as a result of his divorce with his first wife, new relationship with American poet Laura Riding, and the publication of his 1929 memoir, Goodbye to All That. Many of the poems in this collection concern the author&#39;s pre-war patriotism, mid-war horror, and post-war shellshock.. Signed by Author. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.
