      Paris - Bernard Grasset, 1928 Book. VERY GOOD INDEED. Hardcover. One of Andre Maurois' best-known works, in the original French. With an ink inscription by Andre Maurois to the title page. Ex libris William Tyrell. Tyrrell served in the Foreign Office from 1889 to 1928. He was private secretary to the Permanent Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Thomas Sanderson from 1896 to 1903 and then secretary to the Committee of Imperial Defence from 1903 to 1904 before being appointed as second secretary at the British embassy in Rome. He returned firstly as precis-writer from 1905 to 1907 and later, with Louis Mallet, as private secretary to Sir Edward Grey from 1907 to 1915. Tyrrell supported the Entente Cordiale with France and did not think a rapprochement with Imperial Germany was possible before 1914. In the spring of 1915 Tyrrell appears to have suffered an almost total breakdown and he was moved to a less stressful job at the Home Office before being made head of the Political Intelligence Department from 1916 to 1919. He was Permanent Under-Secretary from 1925 to 1928 and British Ambassador to France from 1928 to 1934. As Permanent Under-Secretary he did not think there was a military threat from Japan and that Russia was the enemy and as Ambassador he worked for an Anglo-French agreement. He was also suspicious of Nazi Germany. He was sworn into the Privy Council in 1928 and made a Peer as Baron Tyrrell of Avon in the County of Southampton, in 1929. In 1935 he was appointed President of the British Board of Film Censors, a post he held until 1947. This book seems to date from his time in Paris as British Ambassador. Numbered 95 to the verso of the title page. Maurois' first novel, Les silences du colonel Bramble, was a witty and socially realistic account of that experience. It was an immediate success in France. It was translated and became popular in the United Kingdom and other English-speaking countries as The Silence of Colonel Bramble. Many of his other works have also been translated into English, as they often dealt with British people or topics, such as his biographies of Disraeli, Byron, and Shelley. Condition: In a quarter-morocco binding with marbled boards. Externally, sound, though with some rubbing and a few marks. Internally, firmly bound. Pages have some slight marginal browning, with just a few instances of foxing. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..

        Records of the Town of Hyde Park

      1928. First Edition . Signed. ROOSEVELT, Franklin D. Records of the Town of Hyde Park Dutchess County. Edited by Franklin D. Roosevelt for the Dutchess County Historical Society. Collections of the Dutchess County Historical Society Volume III. Hyde Park, New York: 1928. Tall quarto, original brown cloth. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $4000.Signed limited first edition, number 35 of only 100 copies inscribed by FDR, of this very scarce 1928 history of Hyde Park also edited by him, the place where, as president, he dreamed of returning—“All that is in me,Â’ he would say, ‘goes back to the Hudson.’”""Franklin Roosevelt presided over our nation as no other chief executive of the 29th century."" Born in Hyde Park in 1882, FDR's family home, ""leaders of the Democratic Party in the Hudson River sent an emissary to Hyde Park to recruit him to run for a seat in the state house"" in 1910—marking the beginning of his political career. In 1928, the year this work was published, Roosevelt entered and won the race for governor of New York. His ""term as governor of New York made his a front-runner for the presidency in 1932"" (Encyclopedia of the American Presidency, 432). Later, as president, ""FDR would sometimes muse about that distant day when he would leave the cares of the presidency behind. 'All that is in me,' he would say, 'goes back to the Hudson.' He dreamed, he said, of returning to Hyde Park, the family seat in Dutchess County, to tend his trees, start a newspaper, maybe serve as what he called the 'moderator' of the United Nations —but only if he could work mainly from home"" (Los Angeles Times). In this very scarce limited first edition of Records of the Town of Hyde Park, edited and inscribed by FDR, he notes, in his foreword, that this work was ""undertaken for two reasons. First, to preserve for future the local history which exists for the most part only in original manuscript form and may at any time be lost or destroyed. Second, to encourage other town in our County of Dutchess to carry out similar tasks."" To presidential collectors and bibliophiles, this limited edition, one of only 100 copies signed by FDR, is a foundational volume. Without scarce dust jacket. Text fresh and clean, inner hinges expertly reinforced, only light edge-wear, minor fading to gilt-lettered boards.

        The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club

      Payson & Clarke, New York 1928 - Very Good in the publisher's full purple cloth. The spine is stamped in yellow. 345pps. For purposes of presentation, this volume has been supplied with a beautiful facsimile dustjacket of the Payson & Clarke original. There is modest rubbing wear to the tips and spine-ends and the spine (including the lettering) is considerably sunfaded. A small, incidental pen-mark is on the bottom of the textblock. The text is clean and bright, with no previous ownership markings. The binding, though quite sound, is slightly shaken: there are separations (with narrow disclosures of the webbing) is at pgs. 122 - 123 and at 344 - 345. In all, a nice, clean copy of this Sayers classic, scarce in the first printing. ".The death of old General Fentiman in his usual seat before the fire in the Bellona Club only added to the reputation of that establishment as something of a dignified morgue. Yet on that particular Armistice Day, the question of his death was to prove vital in a matter of inheritance, and Lord Peter Wimsey finds that there are nagging questions about just exactly how and when the old man met his death. In his investigation, Wimsey uncovers the suspicious matter of a will that, depending upon who has died first, stands to benefit a number of people, thereby creating a motive for murder." Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile. Satisfaction guaranteed or all costs you've incurred will be promptly refunded.

        Persian Pictures

      London: Ernest Benn Limited, 1928. Hardcover. Fine/Very good. 8vo. Green cloth, gilt spine title, top edge gilt. 198,(2)pp. Preface by Sir E. Denison Ross. First published in a very small edition in 1894, this reissue with Sir Denison's preface is sometimes described as a 'first edition thus'. This is a sharp copy with only the barest trace of wear. The dustwrapper has light soil, a bit of wear and darkening from age but is essentially near fine. And so it begins. Gertrude Bell, who, assisted by T. E. Lawrence and others, was the great shaper of modern Arabia. But it began in 1892, when Bell visited Persia for the first time, and fell in love, both with Arabia and with Henry Cadogan. Together they visited and explored and interviewed, and Bell wrote it all down. They engaged to marry, but their engagement was deemed unsuitable, and Gertrude returned to England. Henry died of pneumonia a short time later, and Gertrude's stepmother, Lady Florence, persuaded her to publish her Persian experience. After Gertrude;s death in 1926, Lady Florence caused this present issue, and prevailed upon Sir Denison, Gertrude's Persian professor and the Head of the London Oriental Institute, to write an explanatory preface. The first edition of 'Safar Nameh: Persian Pictures' was published in 1894. Collectible copies are virtually nonexistent. This reissue, though many times reprinted, is also elusive in collectible condition. It would be hard to find a nicer copy than this exemplar.

        CROWD, THE (1928)

      MGM 1928 - Vintage original 22 x 14" (55 x 35 cm.) window card poster, USA. Eleanor Boardman, James Murray, Bert Roach, Estelle Clark, dir: King Vidor; MGM. One of the finest silent films ever made. Director King Vidor's masterpiece. This was Vidor's pet project, an early example of a director's picture within the studio system. Irving Thalberg gave him the green light, as he had made many moneymaking films for MGM. The studio felt it would not make money, but in the end it made double what it cost and was nominated for two Academy Awards (for Dramatic Film and Director) in what would turn out to be the first Academy Awards presentation (SUNRISE would win in this category). The story of a young couple in New York City who marry and have children and meet with human tragedy (the loss of a child, the loss of a job, the breaking of a marriage) -- the story of the everyman, of the everyday person getting lost in the crowd. It is difficult to find any material on this title. Card has been cleaned and backed. Tears and cracks around the blank credit box have been addressed and touched-up. Areas in the blank background and in the black of the art area where pinholes and tears occurred have been touched-up. A vertical crease of tear about 3" (8 cm.) in from the right side going through the title art and into the head of the male character has been touched-up. A few areas along the edges have been touched-up. Displays clean and beautiful. VERY GOOD

        Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám, The

      London: Robt. Riviére & Son., Ltd., 1928. An Exceptionally Fine Rivière Rubaiyat With Twelve Hand-Colored Illustrations by Gilbert James [RIVIÈRE & Son, binders]. The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám. Translated by Edward Fitzgerald. Illustrated by Gilbert James. London: Robt. Riviére & Son., Ltd., 1928. "This special edition of the Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám, with twelve hand-coloured illustrations, is printed in Caslon Old Face type on Studio hand-made paper." Octavo (8 x 5 3/8 inches; 204 x 137 mm.). [ii, blank], [iii-xii], 75, [1, imprint] pp. With twelve illustrations by Gilbert James hand-colored and heightened with gold, and printed with blue initials for each stanza.  Bound ca. 1928 by Rivière & Son (stamp-signed on front turn-in) in full brown crushed levant morocco. Front cover with a central oval panel with an onlaid green-spotted serpent twining around a large gilt chalice. This central panel is surrounded by a floral border of inlaid green flowers on purple stems with bunches of grapes. Inside a double-ruled gilt border on each cover is stanza number fifty-eight "Oh, Thou, who Man of baser Earth didst make, And who with Eden didst devise the Snake: For all the Sin wherewith the Face of Man Is blacken'd, Man's Forgiveness give - and take." Rear cover with a similar oval panel also surrounded by a floral border of inlaid green flowers on purple stems with bunches of grapes, and with a single onlaid green flower and a central inlaid bunch of grapes. Spine with five raised bands decoratively bordered in gilt with inlaid purple morocco bunches of grapes in five of the panels and gilt lettered in the other, double gilt ruled board edges, elaborate gilt turn-ins, also featuring the grapevine motif, marbled paper doublures and endleaves, all edges gilt. A fine example of a late twenties Rivière 'Inlaid' binding. A similar binding (but without the quotations on the borders of both covers) was sold in the Chevalier sale at Christie's New York, Friday November 9th, 1990, lot 63. We actually sold that copy to Paul Chevalier and then later to another private collector. Loosely inserted in the Chevalier copy was a pencilled note, identified by a second description as being in the hand of George Napier, an Edinburgh collector who commissioned a number of bindings. Napier explains his purchase of the book from Rivière in 1932 and that he commissioned  the special border now decorating the book. He adds that "George" at Rivière's explained that the chalice and serpent motif was designed by Alberto Sangorski, brother of George Sangorski the binder, and concludes with the mention of the "Great Omar", which sank with the Titanic. First published in 1859, Edward FitzGerald's version of Omar Khayyam's quatrains was widely read only after it was taken up by the Pre-Raphaelites in 1861. The height of the poem's popularity corresponded with the heyday of the illustrated book, and such well-known illustrators as Willy Pogany, Edmund Dulac, René Bull, Gilbert James, and Frank Brangwyn received commissions to illustrate the poem. Gilbert JAMES (1865-1941) was one of the earliest and most prolific of the artists to take up the challenge of providing illustrations for FitzGerald's verses and his work was reprinted many times in different forms during the twentieth century.

This "romaneto" (short novel) incorporates the poetism set forth by Teige.
