Limited edition, number 56 of 500. Signed by John Austen. Antoine Franois Prvost (1697 - 1763), usually known simply as the Abb Prvost, was a French author and novelist. Manon Lescaut is a short novel first published in 1731. It is the seventh and final volume of Mmoires et aventures d'un homme de qualit. It was controversial in its time and was banned in France upon publication. Despite this it became very popular and pirated editions were widely distributed. In a subsequent 1753 edition Abb Prvost toned down some scandalous details and injected more moralizing disclaimers. John Austen (1886 1948) was an English book illustrator. His early works were Beardsleyesque in style, but after 1925 he was influenced by the Art Deco movement. Austen used several techniques in his illustrations, including wood-engraving and scraperboard, and changed styles to suit the text he was illustrating. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is slight wear to the extremities, including soem bumping. Internally the pages are bright and generally clean, with some intermittent light spotting. Overall the condition is very good..

Attractive binding and complete in two volumes. Limited edition of 1000 copies of which this set is numbered 218. French text. Collection of the letters of Marie de Rabutin-Chantal, Marquise de Svign. Marie de Rabutin-Chantal, Marquise de Svign (February 5, 1626 April 17, 1696) was a French aristocrat, remembered for her letter-writing. Most of her letters, celebrated for their wit and vividness, were addressed to her daughter. By 1673, Madame de Svign's letters were being copied and circulated. Therefore, Svign knew that her letters were semi-public documents and crafted them accordingly. The year 1676 saw several events important in Madame de Svign's life. For the first time she was seriously ill and she did not thoroughly recover until she had visited Vichy. Her letters from this place are among her best, and picture life at a 17th century watering-place with unsurpassed vividness. In this year, too, took place the trial and execution of Madame de Brinvilliers, whichalso figures in the letters. Condition: The bindings are tight and firm and all covers are firmly attached. There is some minor wear to the extremities. Internally the books are veryclean and bright with no obvious marks. The last page of text to Vol. II has a small closed tear along the bottom edge but otherwise a nice set in good condition..

First Edition. Signed and dated by the author on the title page. Comprised of various essays on the theatre, including The Play as Composition, The Menace of the Movies, The Snob as Playgoer, and Pulse and Impulse: Dramatic Verse. Ashley Dukes (18851959) was a playwright and theatre critic who opened his own theatre, the Mercury, in a converted church hall. He turned it eventually into a workshop for poets' drama and for his wife's Ballet Rambert, the senior English ballet company. He was a man of great charm and unobtrusive common sense, and, with the means to back his judgement, had much influence on the intellectual theatre of his time. Smilingly, he rejected any form of insularity; he was a European with a taste in wine as sure as his taste in the theatre and the fastidious cadences of his prose. - DNB. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is very slight wear to the extremities, including very slight bumpingand a faint tidemark to the front board.

        John Brown's Body

      Garden City, NY: Doubleday, Doran, and Company, 1928. Garden City, NY: Doubleday, Doran, and Company, 1928 First trade edition, after the printing of 201 de luxe copies. Signed by writer Ring Lardner to the front free endpaper: "To my little Rebel friend Kate / from / John Brown (Body and Soul)." Publisher's black cloth, spine lettered in yellow. Near fine, with some light wear to the spine ends, dimming to the spine lettering, ownership stamp to the rear free endpaper, bright and clean pages. A tight and attractive copy, inscribed by author Ring Lardner. Ring Lardner, an American writer and sports columnist best known for his satirical depictions of the sports world, signed this volume as the ghost of the titular character. Comprised of 15,000 lines of blank verse, John Brown's Body is an epic poem that tells the story of the American Civil War. Published during the height of the Jim Crow laws and shortly after the revival of the Ku Klux Klan, John Brown's Body presents a radical interpretation of the Civil War. Like John Brown, who believed that militant insurrection was a necessary requirement of abolitionism, Benét, a liberal nationalist, viewed the war as a necessary, albeit violent, step in America's development into a progressive and multicultural society. Written in the style of Homer's Iliad and Virgil's Aeneid, Benét uses his masterful command of poetry and verse to create a new sense of the moral and historical significances of the Civil War.. Inscribed. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        Decline and Fall

      London: Chapman & Hall, 1928. London: Chapman & Hall, 1928 Illustrated by Evelyn Waugh. First edition, first printing. Publisher's patterned pink and black cloth, spine lettered in gilt, printed on laid paper. Near fine, with some wear and minor fraying to the spine ends, a hint of toning to the spine, bright and clean interior. Overall, a bright, excellent copy of the author's first book. Based on Waugh's experience as a teacher, Decline and Fall is a satirical novel and social satire about the absurd adventures of Paul Pennyfeather, a student at the fictional Scone College in Oxford who passively accepts the bizarre obstacles that appear in his path. After being expelled from the Scone College for an act of indecent behavior that he did not commit, Pennyfeather becomes a teacher at Llanabba Castle, where he meets the beautiful society lady Margot Beste-Chetwynde, the mother of one of his students with whom he becomes infatuated. Pennyfeather is later imprisoned for Margot's illegal activities, in which he had not taken part. Eventually, Margot, who has become Lady Metroland (the name under which she would appear in Waugh's later novels), rescues Pennyfeather from jail, and he resumes his place at the beginning of the novel as a humble student. An immediate success, Decline and Fall is an early example of the black humor that made Waugh such an acclaimed novelist.. Illus. by Waugh, Evelyn. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

Erste Ausgabe einer seiner wichtigsten Arbeiten, in der er die berühmte, nach ihm benannte "Dirac-Gleichung" herleitet. Sie stellt die Verbindung zwischen Einsteins spezieller Relativitätstheorie und der Quantenphysik her und führt zu zwei ungewöhnlichen Vorhersagen. Erstens die Existenz von Teilchen mit halbzahligem Spin und zweitens, dass zu jedem Teilchen auch ein Antiteilchen mit negativem Energiezustand gehört. Dirac vermutet so die Existenz eines positiven Elektrons, das C. D. Anderson 1932 nachweisen kann und "Positron" nennt. - Stempel auf Titel. Vorsätze erneuert.
