        The Scarlet Pimpernel.

      1928 - Hodder & Stoughton. [no date c. 1928] 8vo., original red cloth with slightly creased and worn dust wrapper. Slits in front free endpaper, previously cut to mount inscribed postcard, now repaired. A very good copy. Reprint, inscribed by Baroness Orczy to Frederick Bason, "To Frederick Bason with kind wishes from the author Emmuska Orczy May 18 1928." Also with a postcard of the author, again inscribed to Frederick Bason tipped into the front free endpaper. Mr Bason has written on the spine of the dustwrapper in tiny letters "Autographed Copy Presented by the Authoress to me. May 1928." A charming association copy inscribed from Baroness Orczy to Fred Bason the "cockney bookseller". Born in the East End of London in 1908, Bason started selling books from a barrow at the age of fifteen. His pursuit of autographs led to friendships with a number of famous writers, eventually gaining celebrity in his own right for his colourful life and writings. The first volume of his entertaining diary contains three mentions of Baroness Orczy. In December 1928 he notes receiving a Christmas card from her, and in 1931 (date not noted) he writes "Baroness Orczy is coming to tea next week - but then again she may not." The third entry from 1936 "wrote to Baroness Orczy accepting invite" suggests their acquaintance lasted many years. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Lady Chatterley's Lover

      Florence: Privately Printed,, 1928. Square octavo. Original mulberry-coloured paper boards, printed spine label, Lawrence's phoenix device blocked in black on front cover, untrimmed and largely unopened. With the plain dust jacket. Jacket lightly toned at the spine, folds and periphery of panels, old tape repair on verso at foot of front panel, a few minor nicks and chips, touch of foxing to top edge. An excellent copy. First edition, number 780 of 1,000 copies signed by Lawrence. "The publication (for subscribers) of the final version of Lady Chatterley's Lover - written in the astonishing time of just five weeks, in one of Lawrence's last great bursts of creative energy - also sustained him, as he overcame the difficulties lying in the way of an individual publishing and distributing his own book. With the help of the Florentine bookseller Pino Orioli, the handsome volume was printed in and distributed from Florence, and made Lawrence more money than he had ever imagined" (ODNB). One of the most famous and controversial books of the 20th century - a strikingly well preserved copy in one of the finest examples of the fragile dust jacket that we have encountered.

        The 1928 Alaska Tour Photograph Album.

      N.p. [ca. 1928], [Alaska] - Original photograph album measuring 9 x 5 1/4 inches and bearing 91 original silver gelatin prints of the 1928 Alaska Road Tour by Governor George A Parks, the Alaska Road Commissioner Major Malcolm Elliott and Territorial Highway Engineer Robert J. Sommers. THe photographs measure 5 5/8 x 3 1/2 inches and all (or nearly so) bear a typewritten caption. Original string-tied flexible leather with gilt cover lettering and a photographic title plate. The photographs and the album are both in very good condition. This tour was undertaken by Parks, Elliott and Sommers in 1928 to ascertain the need for more highways in Alaska and to discern the work already done on various existing routes such as the Richardson Highway. The trip of 2,500 miles to northern and interior Alaska was the first extensive trip that an Alaskan governor had made by airplane. In 1928 there were less than 500 miles of paved roads in the entire state (363 on the Richardson Highway and 44 on the Steese Highway). On the front pastedown of the album is an itinerary (photograph) listing dates, locations, miles traveled and form of transportation. All in all they traveled 4580 miles of which 385 were by steamship, 467 by rail, 281 by railroad speeders (automobiles adapted to ride on the rails), 432 by truck and automobile, 8 by wagon and 2007 by air. They drove a 1928 Ford when they were able (photograph included). The largest amount of miles traveled was by air and their pilot was A. A. Bennett (photographs included). They left Juneau on May 22 and returned June 28th. Their stops were as follows; Fairbanks, Nenana, McGrath, Ophir, Takotna, Iditerad, Unalakleet, Golovin, Nome, Teller, Candle, Kotzebue, Nulato, Ruby, Tanana, Bettles, Wiseman, Fort Yukon, Circle Hot Springs, Livengood, Fairbanks, Chitina, Kennicott. McCarthy, Dan Creek Road, Chitina and Cordova. Opposite this itinerary is a photograph of a map showing the routes taken. There are 91 original photographs of the sights seen by this group on their Alaska Tour of 1928. There does not seem to be any overriding theme other than transportation and the compiler has included many photographs of these he found interesting. A few examples would be "Bill and wife at their cabin on Ophir-Takotna Road. These people are mining placer gold"; "Freighting on Yukon Highway near Goldstream" ; "Tunnel at head of Fox Gulch, tapping Chatanika River watershed for for dredges in Goldstream"; "Gold Dredge at Flat"; "Cabin on Nome-Shelton tram near Nome bridge"; "Gas-driven speeder on Nome-Shelton tram"; "The graveyard at Nulato"; "End of aviation field at Nulato" (a panorama of two photographs joined and showing many indigenous people); "Fort Yukon Hotel"; "Alaska Road Commission house at Sallchaket"; "Cableway ferry [i.e. a zipline] for pedestrians between aviation field and village Golovin"; "Widening of Richardson Highway near Hogans--June, 1928"; "Adams grader and caterpillar working between Fairbanks and 18-mile Roadhouse-June 19, 1928", etc. Special attention is given to the various airfields (as is appropriate as they traveled far by air) of Alaska: Fairbanks Airport, Nenana Landing Field, Unalakleet aviation field, Nulato aviation field. Wiseman aviation field, Bettles aviation field, etc. This album was a portrayal of a government survey of transportation in Alaska and thus there are almost no photographs of strictly natural phenomenon (lakes, glaciers, etc). It is likely that Robert J. Sommers was the photographer as there are numerous photographs of Parks and Elliott but only one of Sommers. Plus included is a leather zip-up satchel with with the initials R. J. S. in gilt and within it are many assorted newspaper articles about Robert J. Sommers. Also included is a large (13 1/4 x 8 1/4 inches) original hand-colored photograph of the Taku Glacier by E. Andrews, a n original copy printed (matted) of the R. J. Sommers Construction Company showing a busy yard in 1944, a packet of personal photographs from R. J. Sommers,

        Lady Chatterley's Lover (W/ SATURDAY REVIEW EDITOR HENRY SEIDEL CANBY ALS IN REGARDS TO READING THE BOOK LAID-IN)

      Private, Florence, Italy 1928 - 6 1/8 X 8 1/4 Inches. 365 PP. #555 of 1000 numbered copies. Assumed first year "Pirate" edition as this copy is unsigned. This particular copy accompanied by a lengthy ALS from Henry Seidel Canby on official Saturday Review of Literature stationery. In part, "Dear Mrs. Jacobs, I apolgize for keeping the Lawrence so long (it is going to you today) but I wanted to read it carefully as did my wife. It is an extraordinary book, admirable in its truth and frailness, and it seems unfortunate that our taboos make it impossible to circulate it, at least among those of sufficient experience to take it as written." The letter goes on to discuss the rate at which the Italian edition of 1929 sold out as well as a few strengths of the novel. An interesting connection is that the book once belonged to Mr. and Mrs. Sinclair Jacobs of Atlanta, GA. Mr. Jacobs was the son of the founder and President of Jacob's Pharmacy. Jacob's was the first and original pharmacy to sell Coca-Cola at their store soda fountains. This connection is well documented on Coca-Cola's own history pages. A well-traveled copy of this classic that was apparently read and shared by several influential Americans thirty years before the same text was permitted to be printed in the United States of America (the 1959 Grove Press edition). ALS in original cover envelope addressed to Mrs. Sinclair Jacobs. Contemporary burgundy buckram rebinding. A few primitive paper repairs to the corners of the first four pages. Light foxing and toning. Small section of insect damage to front pastedown as shown. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Uue kunsti raamat. Neue Kunst in Estland. L'art nouveau en Estonie. Eesti Kunstnikkude Ryhma almanak [Almanac of the Estonian Artists' Group]. Edited by Märt Laarman

      Tallinn: Eesti Kunstnikkude Ryhm, 1928. Octavo (22 × 18 cm). Original pictorial wrappers by Märt Laarman; 80 pp. Tipped-in color frontis; sixty four pages of black-and-white reproductions. Wrappers rebacked, with restoration to spine and lower corner of rear wrapper; internally very good, save for tiny owner inscription to title page. First and only edition of Laarman's important "New Book of Art," a representative overview of Estonian avant-garde art, sculpture, and architecture meant to propagate these new forms both domestically and abroad. The EKR was one of the main organizations propagating cubo-futurist tendencies in Estonia throughout the 1920s and early 1930s. With an introduction by the editor, Estonian artist Märt Laarman, as well as summaries in French and German. The numerous illustrations, on sixty-four pages, showcase the best cubist and constructivist paintings, woodcuts, decorative arts, stage design and sculpture produced in Estonia at the time, by artists such as Felix Johansen, Eduard Ole, Edmond Arnold Blumenfeldt, Arnold Akberg, and Laarman himself. At the time, in fact, the book led to some international recognition for the new Estonian art: "Laarman ensured that copies were sent to influential artists and art critics across Europe, with the art historian Michel Seuphor and Theo van Doesburg being amongst those to receive copies. The Book of New Art made an impact on the de Stijl movement's leader, for, as Mai Levin recounts, he praised it in terms of design quality and content, and included a favorable review in his own journal" (Blackwood, "Mapping Estonian Modernism: Märt Laarman and the Eesti Kunstnikkude Ryhm,"2007, 94). With striking use of typography throughout (vertical and horizontal image captions, frames and bars constructed of type). KVK, OCLC show copies at the British Library, Getty, Helsinki, and Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin only.

        ALL THE CONSPIRATORS

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1928. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. The author's first book, an anti-heroic story about a young man who is defeated by his mother. Heavily indebted to E.M. Forester, and to a lesser extent to James Joyce and Virginia Woolf, the novel is studiedly avant-garde in its cinematic montages, stream of consciousness, abrupt shifts in points of view, coded language, and consequent obscurity. Octavo. Original mustard cloth binding, with purple titles. Mild dust staining to the top edge. The spine is a trifle sun faded; otherwise very good. Accompanied by a pristine facsimile dust jacket.

Edges and corners slightly bumped, some scattered scuff marks, internally complete; very good. “In developing the theme American Panorama for the new “Trend of the Times Wallpapers,” Virginia Hamill, in her special way, brings to all Americans not just the obvious pictorial America, but also some of the little things that have meant so much to most of us in our remembrances of pleasant happenings and sensations as we grew up...American ideas for American houses... [a]s varied as the American scene.” “Virginia Hamill, one of the first American women in the field of industrial design, [and] called herself a “decorative art consultant.” Under this broad title, she gained prominence as an exhibition organizer and designer, retail merchandiser, product stylist, and interior designer and educator. She was influential in her use of department store exhibitions to introduce European modernist design to mainstream American consumers. Hamill may be best known as the Executive Director of R.H. Macy and Co.’s 1928 International Exposition of Art and Industry, for which she scouted, selected, and organized hundreds of examples of furniture and objects by a wide range of international designers (cooperhewitt.org).”
