        Orlando A Biography

      New York: Crosby Gaige, 1928. Limited first edition, no. 224 of 861 copies on rag paper, signed by the author. Frontispiece and 7 plates. [iv], 336 pp. 8vo. original glassine dust-jacket. A fine, largely unopened copy. Housed in a custom quarter morocco box. Limited first edition, no. 224 of 861 copies on rag paper, signed by the author. Frontispiece and 7 plates. [iv], 336 pp. 8vo. Signed by Woolf. A superb copy in the scarce glassine jacket, signed by Woolf in purple ink on the verso of the half-title. Woolf's singular feminist masterwork was written as "a tribute to [Vita] Sackville-West in the form of a parodic biography of a four-hundred-year old character, who starts out as a young aristocratic man in the Elizabethan age, changes from male to female in the course of the seventeenth century, and winds up as a modern woman driving a motor car in the 'present moment' ... Satirizing both the history of literature and the history of sexuality, Woolf playfully suggests both might be a matter of style" (Encyclopedia of Feminist Literature, p. 277). Kirkpatrick A11

        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]

Overall an about fine copy."The high point of Updikeís career as a designer and printer was the completion in 1930 of The Book of Common Prayer. . . According to the Use of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America. His specimen pages were chosen, from among those invited from four printers, by the Churchís Commission on Revision. The whole undertaking was financed by J. Pierpont Morgan. 'It was an enormous task,' wrote Updike, 'and one which taxed our resources in many different directions, but in which what knowledge I had of the history of a Church to which my family have been for nearly three hundred years adherents, and of the liturgical requirements and practical use of the Prayer Book stood me in good stead. . . . The book was begun in 1928 and was finished in the autumn of 1930.' Without decoration, except a typographic leaf, initial letters, and rubrication, this is an austere and handsome quarto. Five copies were printed on vellum. The edition is a superb example of American craftsmanship and an abiding tribute to all concerned in its production." (The Printed Book in America, Joseph Blumenthal).Provenance: This book belonged to the Right Reverend Robert Claflin Rusack, Bishop of the Episcopal Chuch in the Diocese of Los Angeles, with his bookplate. In this copy, a letter on his letterhead is laid in presenting the book to the Stern family. The letter reads "Christmas Eve, 1982/To all in the Stern family, I present this book- one of the treasures of the world. This particular volume is one of 500 made in 1928 as the result of a gift from the Pierpont Morgan family. It came to me as a result of a lust for books. The Huntington Library already had a copy so I was able to acquire it. Now it is passed on to a family that has meant so much to us for twenty-five years. Mayhaps it will be passed on to Adam Christian or some other heir of this grand family. +Robert C Rusack"HBS 67893.$4,000

        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.

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,

        Électrons et Photons. Rapports et Discussions du Cinquieme Conseil de Physique tenu a Bruxelles du 24 au 29 Octobre 1927 sous les Auspices de L'Institut International de Physique de Solvay. Publiés par la Commission administrative de l'Institut.

      Gauthier Villars, Paris 1928 - First edition, rare in the original printed wrappers, of the proceedings of the fifth Solvay Congress, where the debate between Bohr and Einstein on the consistency and completeness of quantum mechanics began. It was at this, the most famous of the Solvay conferences, that Einstein, disenchanted with Heisenberg?s uncertainly principle, made his famous remark that ?God does not play dice,? to which Niels Bohr replied, ?Einstein, stop telling God what to do!? Seventeen of the twenty-nine attendees, which included nearly all the principal architects of the old and the new quantum theory, were or became Nobel Prize winners. ?The three and a half years since the fourth Solvay Conference ? were marked by enormous progress in quantum physics. Partly based on discoveries and ideas that had been available already before 1924 ? such as the Compton effect and matter waves ? the new atomic theory had arisen, which did more than throw new light on the difficulties discussed at the 1924 conference: quantum or wave mechanics went right to the heart of the problems posed by atomic phenomena. The two subjects put programmatically into the title of the fifth Solvay Conference ? electrons and photons ? designated the crucial points of interest, because ?electrons? also stood for the smallest, massive constituents of matter, and they now became associated with waves, and ?photons? (a name given only recently, in October 1926 by the physical chemist Gilbert N. Lewis, to Einstein's light-quanta) characterized the quantum-theoretical aspect of electromagnetic radiation. It was the declared intention of the Scientific Committee of the Institut International de Physique Solvay to contribute by scientific reports and discussions about them to the clarification of the scientific concepts in the physics of the day. In retrospect, one may indeed attribute an important success to the 1927 Solvay Conference in marking the completion of the ideas that had first been discussed in the international physics community sixteen years previously at the first Solvay Conference of 1911? (Mehra & Rechenberg, pp. 233-4). The present volume contains the following reports, and discussions about them by the participants: ?The Intensity of the Reflection of X-rays,? by Bragg; ?Disagreement between Experience and the Electromagnetic Theory of Radiation,? by Compton; ?The New Dynamics of Quanta,? by de Broglie; ?The Mechanics of Quanta,? by Born and Heisenberg; ?The Mechanics of Waves,? by Schrödinger; ?The Quantum Postulate and the New Development of Atomic Theory,? by Bohr. No copies located in auction records.In 1911 the Belgian industrialist Ernest Solvay invited a group of the world?s most prominent physicists, including Einstein, Planck, Lorentz, Sommerfeld, Rutherford and Marie Curie, to participate in a scientific conference on the difficulties of reconciling classical physics with quantum theory. The conference ?set the style for a new type of scientific meetings, in which a select group of the most well informed experts in a given field would meet to discuss the problems at its frontiers, and would seek to define the steps for their solution? (Mehra, Solvay Conferences, p. xv). The first Solvay Conference?widely considered a turning point in the history of modern physics?was so successful that in the following year Solvay established a foundation, now known as the International Solvay Institutes for Physics and Chemistry, ?to encourage the researches which would extend and deepen the knowledge of natural phenomena? (ibid.) and to sponsor further conferences. The next two Solvay Conferences met in 1913 and 1921; subsequent conferences have been held every three years except during wartime.?From amongst the members of the Scientific Committee [of the 1927 Congress], two had already played a leading role in 1911: the Chairman Hendrik Lorentz and Albert Einstein; the latter had presented then the most revolutionary report [on the light quantum].

      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]

        Arabia of the Wahhabis.

      1928 - 1st edition. With 29 half-tone plates, a large folding map of Central Arabia (Riyadh) and a single page plan of Buraida. With 14 diagrammatic figures in the text by H.A.R. (?Kim?) Philby, (then a King's Scholar of Westminster School). A little sporadic light foxing. Original green cloth boards. Slightly worn, back a little creased.8vo. xv,422pp. Constable, London. In his preface Philby writes ?This volume continues and completes the record of my sojourn in Arabia during the years 1917 and 1918. In effect, therefore, it forms a third volume of The Heart of Arabia? Accordingly, it continues the narrative of Philby's diplomatic mission in Arabia (which was aimed at intercourse with Ibn Saud) until its termination in October 1918. The mission ended due to a difference of opinion between Philby and the British Government, over whether or not Ibn Saud should attack Ibn Rashid in Hail. Unsurprisingly, Arabia of the Wahhabispresents Philby's side of the argument and his reasons for advocating the attack. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
