        Arabia of the Wahhabis.

      London: Constable & Co Ltd 1928 - First edition. 8vo. xvi, 422, (2) pp. Publisher's green cloth, gilt lettered to the spine, inscribed by author on the half title "24.IV.28 To Doreen and Jasper Blunt / with the author's best wishes / for long years of happiness. 28.XI.28", his inscription concluding with a line in Arabic script which translates "Help thou a land while thou dwellest therein / and say not - "I am a stranger here". Frontispiece, 28 plates, 1 large folding map of Central Arabia and a full page plan of Buraida [Buraydah]. Some general wear to the binding, occasional spotting. Jasper Scawen Blunt served in the Royal Artillery from an early age and saw action in the Middle East towards the end of the First World War, including in Hejaz. He subsequently served as a British military attaché in Greece and Turkey before serving again in the Second World War, attaining the rank of Brigadier. This book was inscribed as a wedding present, the line of Arabic verse coming from the "Diwans" of the pre-Islamic poet Abid Ibn al-Abras with Philby clearly reflecting upon the itinerant lifestyle of a military family. Although he shared a forename and a surname with the celebrated writer and Arabist Wilfrid Scawen Blunt, incidentally also a friend of the Harry St. John Philbys, Jasper Scawen Blunt and he do not appear to have been close relatives, if at all. The connection between Blunt and Philby, who were near contemporaries, would therefore likely be their shared experiences serving in the Middle East and a keen interest in matters Arabian.

        The House At Pooh Corner

      Published by Methuen, London in 1928. This is a lovely first edition copy of The House At Pooh Corner by A. A. Milne.  The book is in Fine condition and is housed in a Very Good/Near Fine dust jacket.  The dust jacket is the correct first edition cover, with 179th thousand stated under when we were very young on the rear flap. There are some minor marks and wear to the cover, including the edges and spine, where there is some chipping to the top and bottom. This is a little worse to the top of the spine and there is also a little rubbing here which has affected the word the. However, apart from this the cover is in very good condition and still retains its lovely original caramel colour. The book itself is in fine condition. There are some slight bumps to the corners and spine ends and some rubbing on the spine that corresponds to the rubbing of the jacket. Inside there is some light acid migration to the front and rear endpapers, otherwise this lovely book has its original beautiful bright salmon boards and bright clean pages.  Overall, this is a beautiful copy of this classic children's favourite and would be the perfect addition to any modern literature or children's first edition collections.

        20 Hrs. 40 Min. (Hours / Minutes) Our Flight in the Friendship - INSCRIBED COPY -

      New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons. 1928. Hardcover. Very Good. 2nd printing, 1928, INSCRIBED: 'To Cyril Dolan, who produced the first air- rail tickets ever used. Amelia Earhart' on the verso of the frontispiece. 'To Cyril Dolan' in heavier blue ink' for whatever reason. VG copy, lacking jacket, and p. 309 shows some tanning from the insertion of old newspaper articles related to Earhart. Also laid in are two business cards from Mr. Dolan, the first identifying him as a 'Traffic Agent' for TAT - Transcontinental Air Transport in NYC, the second identifying Mr. Dolan as 'Traffic Manager' for the New York, Philadelphia and Washington Airway Corporation of NYC. Probably signed during the September 4, 1929 visit of Earhart to Bethlehem PA, the first speaking engagement since she had become famous as the first woman to fly solo over the Atlantic. In an article from the 2001 Bethlehem Morning Call, the events of that day are recalled: 'Her plane was quickly mobbed by the throng who ran out to greet her. First in line was C.E. Dolan, the New York representative of the Transcontinental Air Transport Co. The fledgling airline was the sponsor of Earhart's visit.' If Mr. Dolan really did issue the first airline tickets ever used, that's quite a pioneering achievement in aviation, although of a vastly lower order than Ms. Earhart's accomplishments!

        Om djur och om människan och djurvärlden. Huvudsakligen om en liten och inställsam rovlysten, om det skydd den får hos människorna, om kelandet med den, av ICN. Ny, översedd och något tillökad upplaga.

      Stockholm; AB Seelig & co., 1928. 17x12 cm. 90 s. Häftad med tryckt omslag. Ouppskuren. Ryggen aningen solbränd, ett riss i bakre omslagets yttermarginal. Mycket fint ex. Andra upplagan av boken som först utkom 1927. Författarens vän G. O.Adelborg behandlar boken och dess författare i sin ''Redogörelser och utredningar'', där det framgår varför de två första upplagorna är så ovanliga: ''Conradson, som var till ytterlighet självkritisk och noga övervägde varje faktum, ord och formulering, tyckte emellertid, att denna första upplaga hade vissa brister, och lät inom kort draga in den i och för makulering. En andra 'ny, översedd och något tillökad upplaga', omfattande 90 sidor trycktes 1928, men makulerades omedelbart. Mot slutet av 1928 trycktes så (i 500 ex.) 'ny, översedd och ytterligare tillökad upplaga', som med sina 110 sidor tillsvidare blev den slutgiltiga.'' Conradsons strävar i detta verk efter att höja de fredliga, pålitliga djurens rykte, medan han vill sänka rovdjurens och särskilt kattens, anseende: ''De ha icke blivit bättre än de vilda rovlystna, de ha i stället blivit sämre än de sämsta av de vilda och fått ett ännu mer lågsinnat skick, en ännu mer förskräcklig uppsyn. Ja, denna uppsyn, denna förening av rovlystnad och sötaktighet, och dessa färger, dessa gröna ögons sken. Dessa ögon äro vanvettigare än de vilda frändernas. Det är dock klart, att detta slag av liv bör man ej uppmuntra.'' (s. 64-65)

New York: Random House / Pynson Printers, 1928. Fine/near fine. Rockwell Kent. Spectacular hand-colored edition of Candide (1 of 95), issued to celebrate the inauguration of Bennett Cerf's new company, Random House. The logo for Random House, used to this day, comes from the final illustration in the book, by Rockwell Kent, depicting an idealized country home filled with the ideas of the Enlightenment. The edition consisted of 1,470 black and white copies priced at fifteen dollars each and ninety-five hand-colored copies priced at seventy five dollars (over $1000 today). The book was printed by Elmer Adler?'s Pynston Printers in The New York Times Annex. The book was hand set in type designed by Adler?'s partner Lucian Bernhard (1883-1972) and paragraph designs and illustrations by their friend Rockwell Kent (1882-1971), both cast by the Bauersche Giesserei, Frankfort. Rockwell Kent had 95 copies hand colored at his studio by his assistants Lone Robinson (who later worked with Diego Rivera) and Wanda Gág (who wrote and illustrated the much-loved book Millions of Cats -- Newbery winner and still in print). There are 120 quarto pages (approximately 8 x 11.5 inches) in the book and on each there is a hand-colored illustration. Everything comes together in this book, easily one of the great books in the history of 20th century publishing. This copy is in true fine condition, bright and fresh and completely clean. 1/4 morocco (also beautiful) over patterned cloth boards of Rockwell Kent's Random House, showing virtually no wear. The original slipcase is present and lined with soft felt (thus the condition of the book) and a silk string for pulling the book out.

      1928 - CHURCHILL, Winston. Autograph letter signed. London, April 16, 1928. One folded leaf, measuring 8 by 5 inches folded and 8 by 10 inches open, on embossed Chancellor of the Exchequer letterhead. Framed with portrait of Churchill, entire piece measures 24 by 15 inches. $16,000.Autograph letter signed from Churchill to Lady Anne Cave, expressing condolences on the death of her husband, Viscount George Cave, the Lord Chancellor of the United Kingdom., handsomely framed with an early portrait of Churchill.Cave, a career politician who served first in the House of Commons and, after being awarded the title of viscount, the House of Lords, was appointed Lord Chancellor in 1922, a post he held until a few days before his death in March 1928. “His imperturbable moderation, his persuasive urbanity, and his calm lucidity, as well as the innate sense of fairness of which these were the outward expression… deservedly won for him the respect of all parties… Lord Cave was a great public servant. If his distaste for every form of display and self-advertisement tended to give an appearance of conventionality and reserve to his public work, he had another side which he showed to those who enjoyed his friendship and whose affection he had won. He would not have wished any estimate of his career to be silent on the great debt which he owed to the lifelong companionship and constant inspiration of his wife. In Lady Cave’s books the reader is able to share some of the intimacies of his life” (DNB). Churchill’s letter, dated April 16, 1928, reads, “My dear Lady Cave, I venture to write & express to you my profound sympathy in y[ou]r grievous loss. My wife & I felt most keenly for you both in those tragic weeks. She is herself recuperating abroad from a dangerous illness, & I do not know whether she has had the strength to write herself, but I know how intensely she will share my sentiments, & as soon as she is strong enough you will hear from her. In the Cabinet we all felt the shock of a heavy blow, & though the office can be filled the vacancy remains. Everyone was poignantly affected by the letter wh[ich] you wrote at y[ou]r husband’s request from his deathbed. When the allotted span has been accomplished, it is vain to rebel against the fulfillment of life. It is heroic & enviable to die in harness with careful thought for every interest in one’s charge & faithfully carrying on to the very end. This came to young people in the war, but in these times of peace the same qualities of firmness of character & integrity of spirit can sometimes find their expression. I thought you would not mind my sending you these few lines. Y[ou]rs v[er]y sin[cere]ly, Winston S. Churchill.” A fine Churchill autograph letter, handsomely framed.

      Geneva, 27. III. 1928. - Folio. 1 page. On uncut wove paper, bearing the Schoellers-Parole blind embossed seal, margins uncut. The original autograph contribution of General Djevad Pasha to the Committee of the World League for Peace (Ligue Mondiale pour la Paix), a remarkable organization formed in 1925 with close ties to the League of Nations. The Committee itself was composed of such notaries as Queen Elizabeth of Belgium, King Carol II of Romania, John D Rockefeller, Marie Curie, and Albert Einstein, who personally gathered the present manuscripts over the course of seven years (1925-32). Among the public figures who contributed to the project were dignitaries from the newly-created League of Nations' member states. "In the march towards the ideal of definitive peace, speed is proportional to the development of international solidarity. Once that solidarity has been achieved and the masses feel its effects, war will be definitively banished. [Signed] P.

        LES DOUZE CÉSARS

      Paris: F.-L. Schmied, 1928. No. 165 OF 175 COPIES, SIGNED BY SCHMIED n. Hardcover. 292 x 200 mm (11 1/2 x 7 7/8"). 4 p.l., 326 pp., [4] leaves. No. 165 OF 175 COPIES, SIGNED BY SCHMIED. Dark blue crushed morocco by Gonin (stamp-signed on upper pastedown), spine lettered in gilt, turn-ins with silver fillet border, royal blue leather doublures and matching moiré silk endleaves, original wrappers preserved. Housed in a later suede-backed slipcase. With decorative title and section titles printed in gold, and 23 COLOR ILLUSTRATIONS BY SCHMIED, comprised of nine vignette tailpieces, and 14 full-page plates, including 12 portraits. Ritchie 26. Cracks, with some looseness, along the joints (no doubt because of the heavy boards), covers with light polish residue, original wrappers heavily foxed, but the plates and text clean and fresh. This is the very appealing Schmied livre d'artiste version of Suetonius' classic biographies of the first 12 Roman emperors, originally written in 121 A.D. Immensely talented in all areas of book production, François-Louis Schmied (1873-1941) was one of the most important, original, and active figures in the world of artists' books. He was born and studied in Geneva, moved to Paris at 22 to make a living as a wood engraver, and joined the French Foreign Legion in his mid-40s, losing an eye in the Great War. It was after 1919 that Schmied began to focus primarily on the production of "éditions de luxe," and in the mid-1920s, he and his eldest son Théo managed an atelier that issued a distinguished series of sumptuous works in very small editions, largely for members of elite French bibliophile societies. The Roman biographer Suetonius (69-140?) served for some years as a secretary to Hadrian, but he was dismissed for an indiscretion involving the emperor's wife, after which he retired from public life in order to devote himself to literature. He wrote a considerable number of biographies as well as works on antiquities, natural science, and even linguistics, but all that have survived are his "Lives of Famous Men" (in part) and the present "Lives of the 12 Caesars." Our work contains biographies of the Roman rulers from Julius Caesar through Domitian, with formulaic descriptions of family history, public career, physical appearance, private life, and vices and virtues. The work is of great interest to us mainly because of its material relating to the emperors' often scandalous private lives, material to which Suetonius had access in the imperial archives, and material that would otherwise have been lost.

        Helldorado; Bringing the Law to the Mesquite (signed and Inscribed with a Note About Early Tombstone)

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1928. First Edition. Octavo. 256p. A marvelous inscription on the front free endpaper to Dorothy Lofdell: "May this story ..recall to your memory some of the pleasant hours in Tombstone where "Helldorado" was born, and by closing your eyes may you see a vision of what Tombstone was in the palmy days of 1881."--signed, William M. Breakinridge, Tucson, AZ, Oct. 31, 1918. As Larry Kellner wrote in Arizoniana, William Milton Breakenridge was the deadliest two-gun deputy of Arizona. Besides his career as a deputy sheriff and detective for the Southern Pacific Railroad, he served Arizona as a scout, surveyor and finally author of this book. Even while a deputy sheriff in Cochise County, Curly Bill's partner in crime Tom Wallace had threatened Breakenridge, Curly Bill made Wallace apologize since he did not want to be on the wrong side of the sheriff. The Earp Brothers, Johnny Behan and John P. Clum were part of posses that pursued wild Apaches, stage coach robbers and others. Breakenridge knew Johnny Ringo who carried Greek and Latin classics in his saddlebags which he could read. Since Curly Bill, Johnny Ringo and Earp Brothers gambled together, Breakenridge began to distance himself from the Earps, so he coined the term"Helldorado" which became the title of this book. Jeff Dykes said that this memoir "provides a revealing look at the sheriff's office from the underside, the view of the deputy sheriff." Besides the inscription on the front endpaper, he has boldly signed his name also under the frontispiece with the note-- Old Pueblo Club, Tucson, Arizona. One of the essential items on law and lawlessness in Tombstone from the cowboys who both worked on ranches and rustled cattle to the disgusted citizens who created their Vigilance Committees to do what the law could not (or would not) do. . Bound in light brown cloth lettered in dark brown, page. 127 has an old tape mend to gutter (holding loose page) otherwise a very good copy in the very scarce chipped pictorial dust jacket with chipping to spine ends and corners, edges rubbed, a scrape to front panel. [Howes B739, Adams 150 #17; 6-Guns #262; Graff #395; Phelps, Cattle and Outlaws #400].

        Arabia of the Wahhabis.

      London: Constable & Co Ltd, 1928.. First edition. 8vo. xvi, 422, (2) pp. Publisher's green cloth, gilt lettered to the spine, inscribed by author on the half title "24.IV.28 To Doreen and Jasper Blunt / with the author's best wishes / for long years of happiness... 28.XI.28", his inscription concluding with a line in Arabic script which translates "Help thou a land while thou dwellest therein / and say not - "I am a stranger here". Frontispiece, 28 plates, 1 large folding map of Central Arabia and a full page plan of Buraida [Buraydah]. Some general wear to the binding, occasional spotting. Jasper Scawen Blunt served in the Royal Artillery from an early age and saw action in the Middle East towards the end of the First World War, including in Hejaz. He subsequently served as a British military attaché in Greece and Turkey before serving again in the Second World War, attaining the rank of Brigadier. This book was inscribed as a wedding present, the line of Arabic verse coming from the "Diwans" of the pre-Islamic poet Abid Ibn al-Abras with Philby clearly reflecting upon the itinerant lifestyle of a military family. Although he shared a forename and a surname with the celebrated writer and Arabist Wilfrid Scawen Blunt, incidentally also a friend of the Harry St. John Philbys, Jasper Scawen Blunt and he do not appear to have been close relatives, if at all. The connection between Blunt and Philby, who were near contemporaries, would therefore likely be their shared experiences serving in the Middle East and a keen interest in matters Arabian.

        A COLLECTION OF THREE LIMITED EDITIONS: THE EMPEROR JONES [and] THE HAIRY APE [and] STRANGE INTERLUDE

      New York: Boni and Liveright, Horace Liveright, 1928. Each work ONE OF 775 COPIES (750 of these for sale) SIGNED BY O'NEILL; FIRST EDITION of "Strange Interlude." n. Hardcover. 267 x 197 mm (10 1/2 x 7 3/4"). 90 pp., [1] leaf (colophon); 114 pp., [1] leaf (colophon); 4 p.l., 298 pp., [1] leaf (blank), [1] leaf (colophon). Three separately published works in three volumes. Each work ONE OF 775 COPIES (750 of these for sale) SIGNED BY O'NEILL; FIRST EDITION of "Strange Interlude." First two works in publisher's patterned cloth backed with black buckram, both with pictorial dust jacket and in (somewhat worn) publisher's slipcase with paper label; "Strange Interlude" in publisher's stiff vellum over bevelled boards, with original tissue dust jacket and (very worn and crudely repaired) original paper slipcase. First two works with 17 illustrations (eight in "Emperor Jones," nine in "Hairy Ape") by Alexander King, as called for. Top of "Ape" dust jacket spine neatly replaced, "Interlude" vellum quite spotted (as almost always with this book), tissue jacket of "Interlude" rather torn and creased, otherwise very well preserved: the printed jackets generally clean and fine, and the volumes themselves unworn and internally without significant signs of use. This is a pleasing group of signed limited edition copies of three ground-breaking plays by the only American playwright to win the Nobel Prize for literature. The story of a railway porter who becomes the oppressive dictator of a West Indian island, "The Emperor Jones" (1920) was the play that made O'Neill (1888-1953) famous. In it, O'Neill begins to demonstrate the innovations Day considers his great contribution to American theater: "naturalism, expressionism, modern psychology, previously forbidden themes, and previously unknown plumbing of psychic and spiritual depths." It makes great use of the soliloquy, one of O'Neill's favorite devices: in six of the eight scenes, Jones is the only character who speaks. "The Hairy Ape" (1922) deals with issues of belonging and alienation, revealing O'Neill's sympathy with the laboring class oppressed by the wealthy and privileged elite. O'Neill won his third Pulitzer Prize in eight years for "Strange Interlude," an experimental play that was, in Day's words, "a surprisingly popular success although its nine acts consume five hours." Its story of a 20th century Everywoman touches on the issues of promiscuity, abortion, insanity, and adultery (the controversial content perhaps explaining some of its popularity). This grouping is intended to provide an opportunity to acquire three signed copies of important American plays at an advantageous price.
