        Mr. Pope and Other Poems

      New York: Minton, Balch, & Company. 1928. First. First edition, first state, with his poem Ode to the Confederate Dead tipped-in. Octavo. Cloth with applied printed label. Housed in a custom cloth clamshell cased with morocco label gilt. Boards very slightly splayed and rubbed, short tear on one leaf, else near fine lacking the dustwrapper. Inscribed by the author to the Cowleys: "For Peggy and Malcolm from Allen. August 14, 1928." He also inserts the word "him" after "distract" in the line reading "Distract from nonentity: his metaphors are dead" on page 31. The author's first solely-authored volume of poetry inscribed in the year of publication with a very a significant association. Shortly after Tate began a relationship with his soon-to-be wife Caroline Gordon, they moved to "Robber Rocks," a house in Patterson, New York, with friends Slater and Sue Brown, Hart Crane, and Cowley. Cowley was one of the few reviewers who understood the seeming contradictions in Tate's thought and writing, those stemming from his overlapping identities as a Catholic, a Southern Agrarian, and a man of letters. Despite admitting that "it almost seems that his essays are being written by three persons, not in collaboration but in rivalry," he nonetheless conceded, "I doubt that any other poet in this country is a better judge of his contemporaries than Allen Tate" (quoted in Thomas A. Underwood, Allen Tate: Orphan of the South, Princeton UP, 2000; p. 237). .

        Lonesomest Doll, The.

      Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin, 1928. - The Rackham-Illustrated Edition"A Difficult Title To Find in Good Condition"[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. BROWN, Abbie Farwell. The Lonesomest Doll. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. New York: Houghton Mifflin, 1928. First edition illustrated by Rackham, published only in America. Octavo (8 1/4 x 5 7/8 in; 209 x 150 mm). [8]. 80, [1], [3, blank] pp. Title page, frontispiece and two full page illustrations in rose and greenish-blue, twenty-six black and white drawings. Original tan, pictorially stamped, cloth. A remarkably fresh, clean, and exceptionally fine copy in the original color pictorial dust jacket."The text is printed on a poor and brittle paper, so it is a difficult title to find in good condition" (Riall)."There is no more famous illustrator of children's books in the entire world than Arthur Rackham. Indeed, there are many people who make a point of buying every Rackham book regardless of subject, merely for the sake of the pictures. For, unlike that of many illustrators, Mr. Rackham's work appeals equally to the child and the adult, delighting the young reader by its whimsical humor and multitude of perfectly executed details, and adults by its beauty and artistry.In 'The Lonesomest Doll' Mr. Rackham has found an unusually appealing theme, and he has contributed a series of thirty-one of his unique illustrations (four in color), making a volume that should take its place as one of the finest gift books of the year. Miss Brown's charming story of the proud little queen and her beautiful lonesome doll has held a place for many years among the favorite books of the younger readers, and this new and beautiful edition should make it many new friends." (Front flap of dust jacket).Latimore and Haskell p. 63. Hudson p. 171. Riall p. 163.

        Peter Pan

      Hodder & Stoughton, London 1928 - 8vo, pp. 160. Original blue boards, title labels to front panel and spine. Glassine (not shown in photograph). Light offsetting to endpapers, otherwise a near fine copy in an about very good dustwrapper, spine and top edge sunned, top edge of rear panel ruched and chipped with loss near spine, wear to corners. First edition, issued as part of the Uniform Edition of the Plays of J.M.Barrie. Although first performed in 1904, the play had to wait another twenty-four years to be published. And Peter Pan himself had many prior incarnations, first appearing in 1902 in The Little White Bird, and again in 1911 in Peter And Wendy, the prose story most of us associate with the character. The flimsily-made dustwrapper doesn't often survive on this title. This one, though not perfect, is a nice example.

        The Argonaut Manuscript Edition of the Writings of Frank Norris

      Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc., Garden City, New York 1928 - Ten volumes, Octavo. . One of 245 sets. (Lacking the original manuscript leaf which the edition was issued with but with copies of two leaves). Volume VIII, McTeague, contains an introduction by Dreiser. Included with the set are two pages, photocopies of the original manuscript pages, from the McTeague manuscript. They show how Norris wrote and worked; he set up his page so one third on the left was blank and then used for corrections and additions. He did, also insert words into the text, as well as strike out. The pages have been enlarged from the originals.The top of the first page begins "a vague distress. As length just as the musicians were returning he stood up and whisperedenrgetically in his mother's ear." This corresponds to the last two paragraphs page 89 through second paragraph page 91.The second page begins "with each other. After this own peculiar fashion ÔSetting out with each other' Miss Baker had begun to call it." Many literary critics, including Henry L. Mencken, regard McTeague as the greatest of all American novels. The book itself abound with superlatives: it contains the finest characterization of a dentist in fiction; it is surely the greatest novel to use San Francisco for its setting; it is, in fact, a landmark in fiction, standing with Crane's Maggie and Dreiser's Sister Carrie in the forefront of the development of realism in American literature. Transposed into another medium, the plot became the vehicle for one of the most famous films of the silent screen Greed, directed by Eric von Stroheim. Norris's holograph material is genuinely rare. Indeed, except for unsigned pages from McTeague [the manuscript was taken apart and a leaf inserted in every set of the manuscript edition of the Works], Norris' autograph is practically unobtainable. Spines a little browned, a few with some spattering of brown spots, occasional light rubbing of edges, and dust soiling, bookplate a fine set white parchment over orange boards, front covers and spine stamped in gilt, top edge gilt [Attributes: Hard Cover]
