Clyman, James
Sacramento: California Historical Society, 1928. First edition. A Fine copy of this Zamorano 80 title, showing the more desirable original San Francisco imprint rather than the Arthur H. Clark Company paste-over imprint from Cleveland. Blue publisher's cloth with gilt to spine and front board. Previous owner's bookplate of Fred M. DeWitt to front pastedown, else internally unmarked. Complete and pleasing, including tipped in frontis. James Clyman was a member of several notable expeditions that explored the American West in the early nineteenth century. Clyman and his partners established trading outposts, documented geographical features, and helped further U.S. interests in the lands west of the Mississippi River. While Clyman was far from singular in these efforts, he is remembered and valued for the diaries that he kept while a member of these expeditions. These diaries, which exist in manuscript at the Huntington Library, chronicle more than twenty years' worth of exploration. They are invaluable resources for their perspective into this period of violent conquest in American history. This present volume, prepared by Charles L. Camp, compiles the primary sources alongside related personal papers and records. In addition to the vast amount of factual material about routes, interactions with indigenous tribes, and precise geographical notes, Clyman is also an admirable storyteller. For example, Clyman's understated style verges on humor. Spending the night outside in the Wyoming winter, Clyman keeps his suffering in perspective: "Although the wind blew and the fine frost … [Click Below for Full Description]

Maugham, W. Somerset
London: William Heinemann, 1928. First edition. Original publisher's cloth binding embossed in gilt and black to spine and front board. A tight, square copy at Very Good+ to Near Fine, with some toning to the spine, trivial rubbing along the front hinge, and a small bump to the lower bottom corner. Light scattered foxing, largely confined to preliminaries and the half title. Inscribed by the author on the front endpaper: "For Ethel from one of her authors. W. Somerset Maugham." The recipient is likely Ethel Irving, an actress of stage and early screen who performed in Maugham's Lady Frederick and was a supporter of his work (Maugham Encyclopedia). A pleasing copy with an interesting association. For Ashenden, Maugham mined his life as an author and his experiences working in the British Secret Intelligence Service. In a series of interconnected short stories, Maugham traces the adventures of its title character, Ashenden, as he operates for SIS during World War I in Switzerland and other countries across Europe and Asia under the cover of being an author. Credited with inspiring Ian Fleming's James Bond series and countless other spy-thrillers, Ashenden navigates a complex world of international subterfuge as a cool, disinterested yet effective spy. This delicate work, as his commanding officer reminds him, leaves Ashenden to rely on his wits and skills alone: "If you do well you'll get no thanks and if you get into trouble you'll get no help."

Original biplane illustrated card stock wrappers, string bound, 41 pages, 9 by 6 1/4 inches (with original corkscrew) Die-cut in the shape of a cocktail shaker. "52 Cock-Tail Spins for High Flyers from the Recipes of Many Celebrities", there are in fact only 28 recipes, contributed by celebrities including Fanny Brice (Coronation Cocktail), Marilyn Miller (Bronx Cocktail), June Walker (Absinthe Cocktail), The McCarthy Sisters (Sherry Cobbler), W.C. Fields (Clover Club Cocktail), Florenz Ziegfeld (Sloe Gin Fizz), and George Gershwin (Silver Fizz). "Bottoms Up is notable for two reasons. It was one of only a few cocktail books published in the U.S. during Prohibition, and it's the earliest known example of a book of cocktail recipes of famous celebrities. It's significant that "Tex" Guinan is included [as she had a] notorious reputation as the owner and manager of a Prohibition Era speakeasy called the 300 Club at 151 W. 54th Street in New York City."

JAMESON, Storm.
London: William Heinemann, 1928. Octavo. Original blue cloth, title to spine in gilt, gilt star to front cover. With the dust jacket. Spine ends slightly bruised, a little ghosting from jacket to spine panel, a little foxing to edges of book block. A very good, bright copy in the jacket with toned spine panel, a little loss to head of spine, crease to rear panel. First edition, first impression, this the author's own copy, with her bookplate to the front pastedown, of her semi-autobiographical novel. Jameson (1891–1986) was the first woman to read English at the University of Leeds. As well as being a prolific writer, she was, like Winifred Holtby, "much in demand both as a literary critic and a commentator on social and political issues" (Mackay, p. 33). Jameson was a founding member of the Peace Pledge Union in 1934, though she later reluctantly supported the war against Germany in 1939. During the Second World War, she was President of the London PEN Centre (Poets, Essayists, Novelists), working with refugee writers. [Attributes: First Edition]

LAWRENCE, D. H.
Kesselmatte, Gsteig b. Gstaad (Bern): 28 July 1928. 1 page, quarto. A few tiny holes and very light creasing, overall in excellent condition. Autograph letter signed from Lawrence to Allen W. Steele of the book wholesalers William Jackson Ltd, requesting that they return to the bearer of the letter, Enid Hilton, over 70 copies of Lady Chatterley's Lover which they had ordered and subsequently rejected. Privately printed in Florence in 1928 with the help of the Florentine bookseller Pino Orioli, Lady Chatterley's Lover proved deeply controversial due to its frank eroticism. It was this controversy which led to William Jackson cancelling their order, fearing the rumours of a potential raid by the police, and forcing Lawrence to recover the copies. The incident is related in the Cambridge Biography of D. H. Lawrence: "The difficulties began in July when a London firm with a bulk order (William Jackson Ltd) looked at one of the more than seventy copies they had received and decided, on both legal and moral grounds, that on no account did they want to be involved. Because they had asked Lawrence where they should now send the books, he needed someone in London who could collect and store them for him (to tell the firm to send them back to Florence risked attracting more attention than he thought wise). The person he turned to was Enid Hilton. Lawrence was nervous about involving an essentially non-literary person in his literary affairs, someone from the more 'ordinary' world of his early friends and family, particularly as there was some risk of her being compromised if the aut … [Click Below for Full Description]

1928. Autore: DE CHIRICO Giorgio Titolo: Piccolo trattato di tecnica pittorica Luogo di stampa: Milano Editore: Scheiwiller Anno: 1928 Condizioni: leggere attentamente la descrizione nella scheda In 8, cm 20 x 16, pp. 110. Brossura editoriale con sovraccoperta. Edizione originale rara. Volume stampato per gli Amici del libro  a cura e spese di Giovanni Scheiwiller. Si sono stampati 50 esemplari con impostazione speciale in macchina su carta Ingres della cartiera Miliani di Fabriano e 300 su carta bianca vergata della cartiera Burgo di Verzuolo. Il nostro esemplare appartiene alla tiratura di 50 esemplari su carta Ingres. Buona copia con minimi danni al taglio dei piatti e alla cuffia. L'opera venne commissionata a De Chirico da Giovanni Scheiwiller non ancora diventato ufficialmente editore, ma dipendente della Hoepli. L'opera, nella tradizione della trattatistica pittorica antica, doveva essere un semplice manuale pratico che in realta' rispecchia l'idea di 'ritorno al mestiere' di De De Chirico, concetti peraltro gia' espressi in vari articoli di Valori Plastici.

R., H. J.
1928. Verschiedene Formate bis 37,5 x 27 cm. alle auf Trägerkartons (33,5 x 50 cm.) montiert und mit kl. beschrifteten Etiketten versehen. Beil. ein maschinenschriftl. Doppelblatt als Inhaltsverzeichnis, mit handschr. Zusatz "Abitur-Arbeit 1928/29". In moderner Graphikmappe. Die für eine Abitur-Arbeit gestalterisch und technisch erstaunlich professionell wirkenden Entwürfe zeigen ebenso Einflüsse des Art-Déco, der Neuen Sachlichkeit und des Konstruktivismus wie Anklänge des Expressionismus. Ensprechend gehören die zur Gestaltung gewählten Buchtitel nicht zum Kanon klassischer Gynasialbildung der Gestalter wählte, abgesehen von Angelus Silesius, Stendhal und Dostojewski, zeitgenössische Literatur, wie die Galgenlieder von Morgenstern, Die Weiber am Brunnen und Sklaven der Liebe von Hamsun, den Zauberberg von Thomas Mann, den Mann von vierzig Jahren von Wassermann, verschiedene Titel von Colette, Meyrink, Mitsou etc. und er bezog vielfach ganz selbstbewußt seine stark stilisierten Initialen "HJR" in den Entwurf des hinteren Buchdeckels mit ein. Bei einem Entwurf für den Umschlag eines Verlagsverzeichnisses für Kinderbücher geht der Künstler so weit, den gedruckten Umschlag der Broschüre von Weitbrecht und Marissal neben seinen gezeichneten Gegenvorschlag zu montieren. Mit großem Effekt: der gedruckte Umschlag wirkt bieder und uninspiriert, während der Gegenvorschlag ein echter Eyecatcher ist. Die für Buchumschläge benutzte Spritzdekor-Technik erinnert an die Keramik-Entwürfe von Eva Zeisel. Auch die Plakat- und Werbeentwürfe für Reemtsma, Manoli, Waldorf-Astoria, Biarritz, Ha … [Click Below for Full Description]

MILNE, A A
London: Methuen & Co. Ltd, 1928. London: Methuen & Co. Ltd,, 1928. A lovely copy Octavo. Original pink cloth, spine lettered in gilt, vignette in gilt to front cover within single gilt rule border, illustrated endpapers, top edge gilt, pictorial endpapers. With the dust jacket. Frontispiece and illustrations in the text by E. H. Shepard, of which 7 are full-page. Partial toning to free endpapers as often, else a fine copy, clean and square and without ownership marks, in the near-fine dust jacket, faint dust-soiling, minor rubbing, else unmarked and bright. First edition, first impression. Milne began planning his final Pooh book in 1927. Three years of intense publicity were taking their toll on the family, and Milne longed to return full-time to adult literature, telling his brother that "after one more Pooh book I must think of something else. In fact, it's time I tried a novel" (Thwaite p. 328). Christopher Robin was growing up, soon to leave for boarding school, and The House at Pooh Corner would be a farewell. But first there was an introduction to be made. Milne had bought his son a stuffed tiger, "Tigger", and told Shepard that he was longing to see the illustrations for this new character, who would become one of the author's most popular creations. Published on 11 October 1928, The House at Pooh Corner was received by critics with a delight tinged by sadness. "The Times Literary Supplement congratulated Milne on avoiding 'the temptation to repeat his successful formula mechanically', though it was 'sad to see the stories end'" (Thwaite p. 336).
