        Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up

      London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1928 First edition in play format. Publisher's blue cloth, with white paper labels lettered in blue to the front board and spine; in the original white dust jacket, lettered in blue and red. Book about fine, with a hint of light wear to the extremities, faint offsetting to the endpapers, minor stain to the fore edge; unclipped dust jacket, with some light wear and minor nicks to the extremities, faint toning to the spine, a hint of soiling to the panels, else fine. Overall, a bright and extremely fresh copy, free of any repairs or restoration. Housed in a custom red slipcase, with a black title label lettered in gilt to the spine, with matching red chemise. Peter Pan is the popular story of a mischievous young boy who refuses to grow up and spends his days flying and adventuring with his troop of Lost Boys on the island of Neverland. Peter Pan made his debut in Barrie's 1902 novel The Little White Bird, but his best-known appearances are as the title characters in Barrie's play and novels. The play Peter Pan was first produced in London at the Duke of York's Theater on December 27, 1904, and in 1906, Barrie published the chapters relating to Peter from The Little White Bird along with illustrations by Arthur Rackham in a separate edition entitled Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens. In 1911, Barrie published a different version of Pan's story as the 1911 novel Peter and Wendy. Though published over a decade later, this first edition of Peter Pan, or the Boy who Would Not Grow Up represents the first publication of the 1904 play format, which remains the most popular and earliest full version of the story. Today, the story is generally referred to by the shortened title Peter Pan.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        Under Persian Skies:

      London: H. F. & G. Witherby,, 1928. A Record of Travel by the Old Caravan Routes of Western Persia. Octavo. Original blue finely textured cloth, titles and vignette to spine in gilt, decorative panel to front board in blind, partly unopened, bottom edge untrimmed. With the dust jacket. Photographic frontispiece with tissue guard, 39 similar plates, folding map in colour. Head of spine gently pulled, slightly marked on rear board but an excellent copy in the striking dust jacket, with some wear to extremities and a touch soiled on the rear panel. First edition, first impression. Publisher's copy with their bookplate to front pastedown. Hermann Norden was born in Emden, Germany in 1870 and migrated to the USA at the age of sixteen to work with his uncle, who was a cotton trader in New York City (Schröder,, online). By 1911, he had amassed such a fortune that he was able to embark on an astounding series of voyages; the lands he explored may well have been known to the West - indeed, were European colonies - but how many could claim to have been to both Lake Tana and Phnom Penh? Several books, all published between 1923 and his death in London eight years later, stand as the record of an intrepid career in which Norden always sailed out alone and relied solely on local guides he would encounter at his destination. By 1922. he was already held in sufficient esteem in academic circles to be elected as a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. In a 1927 photograph he is seen standing next to Albert Einstein, Max Planck and other members of the Royal Prussian Academy of Sciences. The present work is the fruit of the the author's immersion in Persian culture Chapters are overlaid with passages demonstrating an impressive knowledge of Iranian history and its Shi'ite faith; in refreshing contrast to the tenor of his contemporaries, one can detect the broad liberal sympathies informing a generally ethnographic style. A fine addition to any collection, especially those with a particular focus on the Middle East, and exceedingly uncommon in this condition with the dust jacket.

        Enorme collectie handschriften, typoscripten, drukproeven en krantenknipsels. 1928-1937.

      - * Gevarieerde verzameling poëzie en (beschouwend) proza van een van de belangrijkste figuren uit het interbellum, bestaande uit meer dan 750 bladen handschrift, ongeveer 150 bladen typoscript, een tiental drukproeven, een halve meter krantenknipsels, vijf perskaarten, een visitekaartje en een originele röntgenfoto van het gebit van Greshoff. In vier archiefdozen.De collectie omvat handschriften en typoscripten van (aanzetten tot) boekbesprekingen, memoire-achtige stukken over letterkundige vrienden (waaronder Bloem, Van Schendel, Vestdijk) en vijanden (Boutens), Franse literatuur (Duhamel, Léautaud, Rolland, Verlaine), schilderkunst (zijn vriend Joseph Kutter) en internationale reizen. Voorts vroege en soms zeer afwijkende versies van gedichten, benevens een aantal ongepubliceerde gedichten. Daarnaast een afwijkende drukproef van Rebuten, met een afgekeurde houtsnede van John Buckland Wright. Verder een omvangrijk, hoogstwaarschijnlijk ongepubliceerd fragment van Greshoffs nooit verschenen roman Tien Mei 1903. Bovendien met leesaantekeningen, namen en adressen, titellijstjes (‘De Taak der Pers’, ‘Bijbelkennis’ en ‘Tegen de Tweedehandsboeken’ (!)) en een potloodtekening. Vanaf 1927 woonden Greshoff en zijn vrouw aan de Boulevard Auguste Reyers 130 in Brussel. Greshoff had toen weliswaar een aantal publicaties op zijn naam staan, maar schreef toch om den brode voor Het Vaderland, Nieuwe Rotterdamsche Courant, De Nieuwe Courant, Vrij Nederland, De Arnhemsche Courant, Groot Nederland, Den Gulden Winckel en Forum. In Afscheid van Europa (Den Haag/Rotterdam 1969) herinnert Greshoff zich over deze periode: ‘Ik schreef ook in de onmogelijkste publikaties over de onmogelijkste onderwerpen als herenmode (ik, een allesbehalve modieus man), over grammofoonplaten (met een angstwekkend geringe kennis van muziek) en over nog veel meer waar ik geen verstand van had en nu na verloop van tijd nog minder van weet.’ Daarnaast verscheen in deze periode van zijn hand een aantal (verzamel)bundels poëzie.Behalve de curieuze röntgenfoto van Greshoffs gebit anno 1937 omvat deze collectie de handschriften van een aantal noemenswaardige teksten: een tegen Boutens gekant artikel (‘Macédoine d’Esprits’) voor Groot Nederland, met de beginzin ‘Dr. P.C. Boutens is verblind door de glans welke van de kleine Goebbels afstraalt.’; aanzetten, vroege versies en fragmenten van wat uiteindelijk de afdeling ‘V Arthur van Schendel’ zou worden in Greshoffs VW deel V; een zonderling interview met zichzelf, doorspekt met autobiografische herinneringen, dat begint met ‘Ik heb Greshoff, die op een der Brusselsche buitenboulevards een klein, vriendelijk bovenhuis bewoont, voor dit onderhoud in verschillende café’s ontmoet. Waar zou men de schrijver van "Dichters in het koffijhuis" trouwens beter ontmoeten kunnen?’; een leuke tekst over Vestdijks boekerij; en een ongepubliceerd cynisch gedicht uit 1928 waarin Bloem en Van Nijlen figureren, terwijl Achilles Mussche, die in 1927 debuteerde, enorm op de hak wordt genomen. Uitvoerig prospectus (6 p.) op aanvraag.

        President Truman sends his Treasury Secretary John W. Snyder two checks totaling $50,000 and tells him to ?invest them in Government Bonds in the same manner you did before.?

      "John W. Snyder?s close friendship with Harry S. Truman began in 1928 when Truman was a County Judge. They served together in the U.S. Army Reserves after World War I. Lt. Col. Snyder was in Col. Truman?s Missouri Regiment, the 381st Field Artillery, 102nd Division. Snyder served President Truman as his Federal Loan Administrator (1945), Director of the Office of Mobilization and Reconversion (1945-1946), and Secretary of the Treasury (1946-1953).Typed Letter Signed ?Harry S Truman? as President, one page, 7? x 9?. The White House, Washington, August 31, 1951. On pale green White House stationery. To Honorable John W. Snyder, Secretary of the Treasury. Fine condition.In full, ?I am enclosing you two checks which come to a total of Fifty Thousand ($50,000) Dollars. I?ll appreciate it most highly if you will invest them in Government Bonds in the same manner you did before.?Accompanied by a 5? x 3? slip of paper upon which the President boldly penned, ?John:- / Here it is / HST.? Two tiny staple holes in the upper left corner suggest this note may have been stapled to the two checks.On May 16, 1949, in a nationwide address from the White House, President Truman said in part, ?The practice of buying Government bonds goes back to the earliest days of our Republic. One hundred and sixty years ago Alexander Hamilton, the first Secretary of the Treasury, appealed to the wealthy people of the country to invest in securities of the Government. There were two reasons why his appeal was addressed to the wealthy. In the first place, there were few persons in those days who had funds that they could invest in bonds. Secondly, these wealthy people had great influence; and Hamilton wanted them to have a stake in the success of the Federal Government so they would give it their support.We have come a long way since that time. The Federal Government, whose very survival was then uncertain, is today the safest place in the world in which to invest money. Furthermore, it is no longer just a wealthy few who are able to buy Government bonds. Today, millions of Americans--farmers, workers, and professional people, as well as merchants and bankers--own Government bonds...?"

The painting shows a desert scene with several tall "pillar" rocks, some vegetation and an expansive blue sky with a few white clouds. A lovely scene from Monument Valley. A little reminiscent in style of both Maynard Dixon and Blumenschein. Very attractive. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Childermass

      London: Chatto and Windus,, 1928. Section 1. Octavo. Original yellow cloth, spine lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Spine gently rolled, contents slightly foxed; an excellent copy in the mildly foxed jacket that has a chip to rear panel, a short closed tear to foot of front panel and head of spine, and a toned spine. First edition, first impression. Number 23 of a limited edition of 231 numbered and signed copies. Chatto & Windus paid Lewis a £200 advance for the complete Childermass, but his failure to produce volumes II and III resulted in a lawsuit. The contract was eventually transferred to Methuen, and the complete trilogy was not published until 1955, when Methuen published Monstre Gai and Malign Fiesta in a single volume. Collectively, these three books constitute Lewis's longest single fictive work and are together titled The Human Age.

Maxfield Parrish expressed his pleasure that his son had "a haven like the Sargents' at Greenwich." Commented on events in Windsor and activities of friends and acquaintances. Signed "Dad."

The Confessions is an autobiographical book by Jean-Jacques Rousseau. In modern times, it is often published with the title The Confessions of Jean-Jacques Rousseau in order to distinguish it from Saint Augustine's Confessions. Covering the first fifty-three years of Rousseau's life, up to 1765, it was completed in 1769, but was not published until 1782, four years after Rousseau's death, even though Rousseau did read excerpts of his manuscript publicly at various salons and other meeting places.
