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

      Boni and Liveright, Horace Liveright, New York 1928 - 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. Each work ONE OF 775 COPIES (750 of these for sale) SIGNED BY O'NEILL; FIRST EDITION of "Strange Interlude.". [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Life & Adventures of Peter Wilkins.

      London: J. M. Dent & Sons Ltd.,, 1928. Large square octavo. Original blue cloth, gilt lettered spine, large decorative gilt device on front cover, top edge brown, pictorial pastedown endpapers. With the dust jacket. Colour frontispiece, 16 plates either tinted or coloured (4 double-page), 23 illustrations in the text, by Edward Bawden. Jacket with tears or closed-tears, stains to spine and front panel, spine of binding a little rumpled otherwise a very good copy in the uncommon dust jacket. First edition illustrated by Edward Bawden, signed by him on the title page. Peter Wilkins was first published in November 1750: "the romance itself, telling the story of a castaway in a fantastic land where men and women can fly, owes much to Robinson Crusoe and something to the Arabian Nights' Entertainments and the non-satirical elements of Gulliver's Travels, but is highly inventive on its own terms... [however] Peter Wilkins had to wait over forty years for widespread recognition. It was admired by Coleridge, Southey, Shelley, Leigh Hunt, Charles Lamb, and others of their generation; it provided material for pantomimes and melodramas from 1800 to the 1870s, and was frequently reprinted, entire or abridged, during the nineteenth century" (ODNB). This handsomely produced edition (according to Alan Horne seventeen of the illustrations were sent to France to be handcoloured, see The Dictionary of 20th Century British Book Illustrators) was Edward Bawden's first major commission as an illustrator.

        La Floride Francaise. Scenes de la Vie Indienne. Peintes en 1564.

      Paris. Editions Nationales.1928. 2 Vol. Folio 32 x 22,5 cm. VII, 139 P., 42 Plates. Illustr. Original Kartonage with transparent film (slightly ripped and used). Jacques le Moyne de Morgues (c. 1533-1588) was a French artist and member of Jean Ribault`s expedition to the New World. His depictions of Native American, colonial life and plants are of extraordinary historical importance. Until well into the 20th century, knowledge of Jacques Le Moyne de Morgues was extremely limited, and largely confined to the footnotes of inaccessible ethnographic bibliographies, where he figures as the writer and illustrator of a short history of Laudonniere`s attempt in 1564-5 to establish a Huguenot settlement in Florida. In 1922, however, Spencer Savage, librarian of the Linnean Society, made a discovery that opened the way to the subsequent definition of Le Moyne as an artistic personality; he recognized that a group of fifty-nine watercolors of plants contained in a small volume, purchased by the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1856 solely for its fine sixteenth-century French binding, were in fact by Le Moyne. Savage`s publications relating to this discovery prepared the way for subsequent attribution to the artist of other important groups of drawings and watercolors, which form the core of his known oeuvre.; Le Moyne was born about 1533, in Morgues, some 7 miles east of Chateaudun, in the Loire Valley, France. The first thirty years of his life are undocumented, but it seems reasonable to suppose that he trained as an artist in his native town, which was at the time a notable center both for cartography and for illumination. Le Moyne probably worked at the court of King Charles IX of France, although there is no documentary record to that effect, nor are there any surviving works by the artist dating from before his departure for Florida in 1564. Le Moyne accompanied the French expedition of Jean Ribault and Rene Laudonniere in an ill-fated attempt to colonize northern Florida. They arrived at the St. Johns River in 1564, and soon founded Fort Caroline near present-day Jacksonville. Painting in the Calvinist style, he is mostly known for hist artistic depictions of the landscape, flora, fauna, and, most importantly, the inhabitants of the New World. His drawings of the cultures commonly referred to as the Timucua (known through theri reproduction by the Dutch publisher Theodor de Bry) are largely regarded as some of the most accessible data about the cultures of the Southeastern Coastal United States; however, many of these depictions and maps are currently being questioned by historians and archaeologists as to their authenticty. During this expedition he became known as a cartographer and an illustrator as he painted landscapes and reliefs of the land they crossed. Ribault explored the mouth of the St. Johns River in Florida and erected a stone monument there before leading the party north and establishing a settlement on Parris Island, South Carolina. He then sailed back to France for supplies while Laudonniere took charge of the colony. Finding conditions unfavorable on Parris Island Laudonniere and the others eventually moved back to Florida where they founded Fort Caroline on the St. Johns Bluff in what is now Jacksonville. Many of the DeBry engravings depict the French fort and the local Saturiwa tribe, the Timucua group who lived at the mouth of the St. Johns in the area of Fort Caroline. Laudonniere`s expedition, though resulting in the production of the fascinating Le Moyne/de Bry publication and an important map of the coastal regions of Florida, was ultimately a disaster; the good relations initially established with the Indian tribes inhabiting the territories around the settlement site at St. Johns soon soured, in addition to wchich various members of the French party became disaffected, and revolted against their leaders. The final coup de grace came a year later, when a Spanish force from the Spanish colony of St. Augustine thirty miles to the south, attacked Laudonniere`s stronghold at Fort Caroline. The Spanish, under the leadership of Pedro Menendez de Aviles, stormed the colony and killed most of the Huguenots, though Laudonniere, Le Moyne and about two dozen others escaped and were eventually rescued to England. Having lost their way on the return, they sailed halft starved into Swansea Bay, England in mid-November 1565, and finally reached Paris early in 1566. Le Moyne`s highly important account of this transatlantic voyage, known today from a Latin edition published in Frankfurt in 1591 by Theodore de Bry under the title \" Brevis narratio eorum quae in Florida Americai provincia Gallis acciderunt \", clearly indicates that it was the King who instructed the artist to accompany the expedition, headed by Jean Ribault and Rene Goulaine der Laudonniere, as official recording artist and cartographer. Although only one original drawing by Le Moyne of an American subject is known today - the depiction of \" Athore showing Laudonniere the Marker Column set up by Ribault \", executed in watercolor and gouache on vellum, now in the New York Public Library - the \" Brevis narratio \" , published by de Bry as the second volume of his great series of publications on voyages to the New World, contains forty-two engraved illustrations and maps alleged to have been made on the spot by Le Moyne. The text by de Bry describes and analyses these images, and his book constitutes a major landmark in the literature of the early exploration of the Americas.

        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

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. Slipcase has a little edge fraying, still near fine or VG++, completely solid and attractive. A beautiful copy of a beautiful book.

      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. â&#128;&#156;His imperturbable moderation, his persuasive urbanity, and his calm lucidity, as well as the innate sense of fairness of which these were the outward expressionâ&#128;¦ deservedly won for him the respect of all partiesâ&#128;¦ 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 Caveâ&#128;&#153;s books the reader is able to share some of the intimacies of his lifeâ&#128;&#157; (DNB). Churchillâ&#128;&#153;s letter, dated April 16, 1928, reads, â&#128;&#156;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 husbandâ&#128;&#153;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 oneâ&#128;&#153;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.â&#128;&#157; A fine Churchill autograph letter, handsomely framed.

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.
