        The Walls of Jericho

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf. 1928. First. First edition. A slightly cocked, else very good or better copy in a fair example of the iconic and rare Aaron Douglas-illustrated dustwrapper with several chips and tears. The author's satiric first novel, set in the dance-halls, cabarets, and pool parlors of Harlem, is a highspot of the Harlem Renaissance and very seldom encountered in jacket. Dr. Fisher, as well as being one of the most promising of the Harlem writers, was also a successful X-ray specialist. He died in 1934 at age 37, of cancer caused by his exposure to radiation. .

      [1928], [Washington] 1928 - A nine-page pamphlet, stapled, with the pages consecutively numbered. The only printing information given are the numbers "19870--28" in small type at the bottom of the first page. A speech by Coolidge delivered under the auspices of the American Legion at the Washington Auditorium on 11 November 1928, while Coolidge was president. SIGNED by Coolidge at the end of the speech. In part: "Although our people became engaged in this great conflict [World War I], some in furnishing money, some in producing food and clothing, some in making munitions, some in administering our Government, the place of honor will always be accorded to the men and women who wore the uniform or our country--the living and the dead." Coolidge concludes, "The gravest responsibilities that can come to a people in this world have come to us. We must not fail to meet them in accordance with the requirements of conscience and righteousness." Coolidge's autograph is quite uncommon in this form. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

The Confessions is an autobiographical book by Jean-Jacques Rousseau.

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.

        Gambado on Horseback

      n.p, n.d, ca. 1928 - A preliminary study for the plate "The Dray Horse makes a Noble Hunter" for An Academy for Grown Horsemen, by "Geoffrey Gambado" (Sir William H. Bunbury), published by Wm. E. Rudge, Mt. Vernon, NY, 1929. Gordon Ross (1873-1946) was a prolific artist, working mostly in watercolor, from his early days in his native Scotland. As a book artist he tackled everything from Dickens to Shakespeare, including a number of titles for The Limited Editions Club. He is also noted for his sporting work, which included illustrations for The Derrydale Press, Surtees's Jorrocks Jaunts and Jolities, and several large prints of notable sportsmen, including Sir Thomas Lipton, Hugo Meynell, Peter Beckford, and Surtees himself. The eminent collector A. Edward Newton, who wrote the introduction to the Surtees edition, praised Ross in his book End Papers: "No one now living in Great Britain and doing work in his line can compare with Gordon Ross, now living in New York.He has no living superior; I doubt if he has his equal for the very quality needed to illustrate a humorous classic." A superb draftsman, with a gift for portraiture, Ross's work has an ingratiating quality of lively elegance; his originals very seldom come on the market Image 10 x 11 inches; matted and framed to 17 x 17 inches overall. Pen, crayon and watercolor illustration.

        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.
