        She Walks in Beauty [*SIGNED*]

      New York: Brentano's. Very Good+. 1928. 2nd printing. Hardcover. (yellow decorated cloth; no dust jacket) [spine very slightly turned, minor shelfwear to bottom edges, a bit of dust-soiling to top edges of covers and text block, a little darkening to spine cloth]. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the ffep: "To Harold Swanson -- / You don't have to / read this but / honestly you ought to / have it around if / only to throw at / contributors. / Sincerely / Dawn Powell / March 30, 1928." The great American author's "first" novel. (At least that's what she called it herself, preferring not to mention her ACTUAL first novel, "Whither," published three years earlier. Hey, even the great ones are entitled to a mulligan, right?) Inscribed copies of Powell's novels are uncommon, and this is also a terrific association copy: the inscribee, later to set up shop as "H.N. Swanson" in Hollywood, where he was the most successful writers' agent of his time, was in 1928 still the editor of the widely-circulated "College Humor" magazine, a post he'd held since the early 1920s. The magazine solicited contributions from numerous well-known writers (including F. Scott Fitzgerald), and the contacts made by Swanson during his editorial tenure served him well as he began to develop his Hollywood client list in 1934. Powell's biographer Tim Page identifies "College Humor" as one of the magazines to which she was a regular contributor during the 1920s, and although neither the specific stories nor the frequency of their appearance have been identified, the familiar and bantering tone of her inscription strongly suggests that she and Swanson had been in regular communication. In any event, Swanson was certainly an important publisher of Powell's early work, and this inscription testifies to a close and significant association. (Both the first and second printings were in March 1928, the same month in which this book was inscribed.) Signed by Author .

        Official R.E. Byrd Globe

      Indianapolis: George F. Cram & Co.. Tabletop globe. 12 inch diameter. 18 inches tall including decorative cat-iron and turned wood stand on circular base. 12 chromolithograph gores. Circular overlabel in South Indian Ocean, signed below label. Some general light crackling and soiling to gores, a couple small scratches with paper loss, some light wear to stand. This wonderful commemorative globe was editioned to celebrate Richard E. Byrd's historic Antarctic expedition of 1928-1930. In 1929, Byrd launched his famous flight to the Pole, becoming the first explorer to reach the South Pole by air, an accomplishment that earned him a Congressional Medal of Honor. A key on the continent lists Byrd's 1929 trip along with the journeys of his predecessors: Roald Amundsen, in 1911, and Robert Falcon Scott in 1912. As many historians have since reattributed the first verifiable claim to the South Pole to Amundsen, this commemorative globe is now a historical artifact in more ways than one. Other notable geographic features of the interwar period include the puppet state of Manchuria, French Indochina and French West Africa, and Italian Somaliland. The globe is colored with a muted glue-green for oceans and yellow for land. Nautical distances are marked in red. An Analemma scale in the south Pacific indicates the sun's declination and the equation of time for every day of the yeas. Some general light crackling and soiling to gores, a couple small scratches with paper loss, some light wear to stand. After serving in the Union army, George F. Cram (1842-1928) joined his uncle's map business and later established his own engraving and publishing firm in Chicago in 1869. As the city grew in significance as a transit hub, area publishing firms incorporated new railway routes that ran through the city into increasingly detailed and elaborate renderings of the country. Cram was especially regarded for his use of cerography, an innovative wax-engraving printing technique, that allowed for large-scale maps that could be easily a and efficiently updated. In the 1930s, the business moved to Indianapolis and began making globes, for which they are still known today. This globe exemplifies its work.

Pilot, and John L. (Jack) Swigert (1931-1982) was the Lunar Module (?Aquarius?) Pilot. Launched on April 11, 1970, Apollo XIII flew by the Moon on April 15, 1970, and landed safely in the Pacific Ocean on April 17, 1970. Apollo 13 was supposed to land in the Fra Mauro area of the Moon.

Due to the free return trajectory on this mission, Lovell, Haise, and Swigert hold the record for the furthest distance from the Earth ever traveled by human beings.Artist Lumen Winter (1908-1982), known for his magnificent murals, designed the official Apollo VIII medallion struck by the Franklin Mint.

        Black Sparta: Greek Stories

      London: Jonathan Cape,, 1928. Octavo. Original blue boards, titles to spine gilt, publisher's device to rear board blind. With the bookplate of Herbert Boyce Satcher to front pastedown. Extremities lightly bumped, spine toned and slightly pulled, with a gentle crease. A very good copy. First edition, first impression. With a presentation inscription to the front free endpaper: "What else is goodness, what of man's endeavours / Or God's high grace, so lovely, so great: / To stand from fear set free, to breathe & wait, / And shall not VIVIAN be loved forever? / Gilbert Murray / from Naomi Mitchison / Summer 1928". These lines are closely adapted from a passage found in The Bacchae of Euripides, or more precisely, the English translation produced by Murray, who was one of the leading classicists of his generation (ODNB). While Mitchison was a Labour Party activist, Murray was a prominent Liberal, with one candidate for the"Vivian" of the inscription therefore being Liberal politician Vivian Phillips. A presentation copy with a message shared between two writers who might have been on opposing sides in one sense but were nevertheless warm friends.

"It claims to be a guide, both geographical and ethical, for pilgrims to the Holy Land, but it carries the reader far off course, to Turkey, Tartary, Persia, Egypt, and India. It was an important influence on subsequent English writers from Chaucer to Shakespeare, and was the prototype in English of the popular genre of the fabulous travel book" (Osborne, Oxford Companion). The illustrations were drawn by Valenti Angelo from those in early editions and manuscripts. The type was designed by Rudolph Koch, here used for the first time in America. The text of this Grabhorn edition is taken from that of the English edition of 1725. One of an edition of only 150 copies.Ransom, p. 302 (no. 12).
