        The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club

      New York: Payson & Clarke, 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.<b><font color=#003366><br><br> "...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."</b></font><br><br> Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile.

Box and books are all in Near Fine (at worst, VG+) condition (see all 5 photos enlarged): box has one corner crease and a few tiny edge chips; otherwise excellent. Books are all in excellent condition except for age-toning to interior leaves, minor soiling to white rear covers, and some connect-the-dots drawings completed in pencil (almost all in pencil, a few colored pencil/crayon). Titles and conditions are: Little Black Sambo Magic Drawing Book (21 drawings; 8 done; 2 partial); Three Little Pigs Magic Drawing Book (22; 4 done; 1 partial); Three Bears Fairy Tale Magic Drawing Book (15; 9 done); Little Small Red Hen Magic Drawing Book (22; 10 done). Almost all of the completed drawings/puzzles can be erased. This is a very rare set, not to be confused with a later, ca. 1940 set, issued by Platt & Munk with the same 'No. 137' designation, but in a red and white box and with 'Sallie Mandie' as the '037B' book instead of 'The Little Small Red Hen'.

        MEMOIRS Of A FOX-HUNTING MAN

      London: Faber & Gwyer Limited, 1928. 1st Edition [Keynes A30.a; Fabes 1929, pp 53 - 55]. Blue cloth, stamped gilt lettering to spine. In light tan dj with blue lettering. Mild shelfwear to extremities; hint of fading to spine; small crease to upper corner of ffep; light foxing and toning to eps; evidence of sticker removal to rear paste-down, with slight loss to top layer of paper; last two leaves partially unopened. Interior otherwise clean, binding sound. Dust jacket lightly soiled from handling; worn at spine ends and corners, with some loss; spine lightly sunned; ~2" closed tear to foot of front joint. VG/ VG-.. 395, [5] pp. 8vo. 7-1/2" x 5-1/4". "A" gathering with signature mark at base of A1r. First edition, first issue, of which 1500 were printed. This copy Class 1b, with a rough-trimmed fore-edge and untrimmed lower edge. Fabes notes that a "copy which conforms to either of these forms [i.e., Class 1a or 1b] is a first issue of the book, irrespective of the presence or absence of misprints" (p 54); the dropped "o" on p 365, present in our copy, is simply "due to imperfections in the type metal" (53). Keynes also notes that "typographical irregularities have no significance whatsoever" in determining first and second issue. A classic of English literature, somewhat scarce in the trade in a complete dust jacket.

        The Station. Athos: Treasures and Men.

      The First UK Printing published by Duckworth in 1928. The BOOK is in Very Good++ or better condition. Original Blue cloth has a little rubbing at the corners. Gilt titling remains very bright. Light toning to the text block with a little spotting to the prelims. Pages remain clean. Free from erasures and inscriptions. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good++ or better condition. A little toned to the spine with mild edge wear with a little loss to the lower front edge and spine ends. A few professional Japanese tissue paper repairs to the verso. The coloured designs to the covers remain very bright. Mild vertical crease to the spine. The wrapper looks very striking in the removable Brodart archival cover. One of Byron's earliest titles with a frontispiece of Simopetra and 32 further B/W photographic illustrations, mainly by the author. In a 1984 reprint of The Station, John Julius Norwich, himself a life-long traveller, writes in a very erudite Introduction : 'No better portrait of the Holy Mountain exists than this, written as it was nearly sixty years ago; nor is it likely to be surpassed in the future. Here, in short, is a classic. And a classic it will remain. What higher praise than this can be gained by someone who was only twenty-two when he wrote the book. Robert Byron changed the English-speaking world's view of Byzantine art and culture through 'The Station' and 'The Byzantine Achievement', published the year after. This book is therefore more than a travel book and more than a study of the monastic society of Mount Athos. It is also a historical enquiry into the civilization of Byzantium seen in its only surviving manifestation. With typical Byzantine complexity the obscure title of the book is only explained in the last sentence : 'This is the Holy Mountain Athos, station of a faith where all the years have stopped'.' Byron was to go on to write his classic title 'The Road To Oxiana' in 1937 before being tragically killed aged 35 in 1941 after his ship, the 'SS Jonathan Holt', was torpedoed by U-97 a submarine in the North Atlantic. His body was never found. A very sharp title and scarce title to find with such attributes.

Maggs celebrated its 500th catalog with bibliographical fireworks, displaying the wide range of their riches from illuminated manuscripts to a Napoleon letter to the first Greek Aristotle (1495-98) plus 19 Americana. When I obtained this there was beginning the damage typical of such a large and heavy book.

        Hilly Hong Kong.

      Hong Kong. Kelly & Walsh. No date. (circa1928). Very attractive view booklet showing Hong Kong at the turn of the 20th century illustrated with collotypes and photogravures - 3 fold out panoramas - 'From the Harbour"; "Victoria"; "Repulse Bay", 12 full page images and 2 leaves with several images. Original wrappers with oval cut out upper cover. A little light browning first image, very light wear edges of covers. A very good copy of a scarce photo book. The title of this scarce photo book holds out hopes of cool breezes in the tropics of Hong Kong. This is one of several such booklets extolling the virtues of Hong Kong. Produced to inform (or perhaps entice) people coming to appointments in what was a British Crown Colony from 1842 until 1997. The standard appointment was for a period of two years, with first-class travel both ways, preferably in posh accommodation (Port Out, Starboard Home), which meant that in the gruelling conditions of the Red Sea, one travelled on the cooler side of the ship in the heat of the afternoon. Three panoramas show Hong Kong as a thriving city with fine Edwardian buildings built on its waterfront or praya. These had been built on a large reclamation completed in 1904 second panorama shows the view of Hong Kong harbour filled with British shipping. The third shows Repulse Bay, with a recently completed resort hotel above a pleasant beach. Clearly this was a nice place to work and relax. Further encouragement is given in a view of the mansions of the Peak, high above the harbour. Resident here were the taipans, the senior executives of British companies. Houses like this would have been familiar to people from British India, accustomed to the hill stations of Simla or Darjeeling. Other photographs show further symbols of Britishness: the Cenotaph, the Supreme Court and Happy Valley Racecourse. Later photographs show elements of Chinese life in busy Queen's Road and in what, to English eyes, would be quaint, a steep street lined with Chinese shops. The album is undated but on the Kowloon side of the harbour, the waterfront is dominated by the Peninsula Hotel, opened in 1928. (Dr Stuart Braga).
