        Signed Typescript of "The Cicadas'" with Corrections

      (c.1928). 2ff. sheets measuring 8 1/2 by 11 inches. Signed typescript of Huxley's poem "The Cicadas." The poem made its first appearance in The Spectator in November, 1928, and was then published in 1929 in Huxley's book of poems Arabia Infelix. The poem also gave its title to a later collection of poetry, in 1931. The typescript has six major holograph corrections, revealing Huxley's contemplation of word choice. He has also crossed out the entire final stanza in pen. Huxley's signature appears just below the omitted stanza. Sheets are creased from being folded down the middle, probably by the author, and faintest toning to crease and edges, otherwise these fragile sheets of typing paper are in fine condition.

        The Childermass

      London: Chatto and Windus,, 1928. Section 1. Octavo. Original yellow cloth, titles to spine gilt, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Spine tanned, cloth a little dulled with some small marks, partial tanning to endpapers, faint toning to margins of contents. A very good copy. First edition, first impression. One of a limited edition of 231 numbered copies signed by the author on the limitation leaf. Chatto & Windus paid Lewis a £200 advance for the complete Childermass, but his failure to produce volumes II and III resulted in a lawsuit. The contract was eventually transferred to Methuen, and the complete trilogy was not published until 1955, when Methuen published Monstre Gai and Malign Fiesta in a single volume. Collectively, these three books constitute Lewis's longest single fictive work and are together titled The Human Age.

        AUTOGRAPHED LETTER SIGNED (ALS) to his son James about attending the Democratic Convention

      [1928]. Letter. Normal creases from folding. Near Fine with envelope. A one-page AUTOGRAPH LETTER on Roosevelt's Fidelity and Deposit Company of Maryland stationery, completely in FDR's hand, to his son James Roosevelt SIGNED as "Father." In full: "All accomodations [sic] are booked for 8:30 p.m. Friday & we'll have a grand time-- By the way find out about when you can leave Cambridge in the Spring -- what do you say to your & Elliot going with me to the Houston Convention which starts June 26th? I ought to get there the 24th at the latest. Hope the exams are coming all right-- Much love Devotedly Father." Though undated, this letter's reference to the Houston Democratic Convention on June 26 firmly places it in 1928. In October of that year, Roosevelt would be convinced to run for Governor of New York, a position he won by a very narrow margin. In the next Democratic Convention four years later, Roosevelt would win the nomination as President and the election to his first of four unprecedented terms. After attending but not graduating from Harvard, James Roosevelt became an insurance executive, a position he left in 1937 to become secretary to his father in the White House. He was decorated for his service as a Marine in World War II. Autograph letters completely in Franklin Roosevelt's hand are quite scarce; those to family members exceptionally so. This with the envelope addressed in FDR's hand to Mr. James Roosevelt.

        (Gill, Eric) [Autograph Letters, Signed, from Eric Gill to Douglas Cleverdon]

      (Pigotts, 1928-1933). A group of five letters from Eric Gill to the publisher and bookseller Douglas Cleverdon. The letters bear Gill's return address at Pigotts, North Dean, High Wycombe. Three are shorter notes on postcards, and two are longer, on sheets of stationery. Gill and Cleverdon were friends and their correspondence addresses aspects of publishing and bookselling. Gill frequented Cleverdon's bookshop in Bristol while he was living in Capel-y-ffin, and Cleverdon published several books with contributions by Gill. In the first letter, dated October 16, 1928, Gill writes, "I am quite willing to delete the sentence in Latin part of preface which you refer to." Gill is referring to his Introduction for a collection of his engravings that Cleverdon published in 1929, which featured a somewhat erotic concluding paragraph in Latin. The letters also reveal Gill's sense of humor: in the opening of that same letter, he writes, "Thank you for your letter-- much relieved-- thought you were dead." In the second letter, dated February 11, 1930, Gill inquires about how his pamphlet Art & Architecture is selling, and asks Cleverdon to send him a couple of books, including The Great Betrayal by Julien Benda, published by George Routledge: "If you haven't read it you should," he adds. The third letter, from later that month, inquires about some other books that Cleverdon was sending to Gill: "I forgot to say: Lady what's her name arrived safely-- many thanks-- but Batsford's book of fig. studies has not yet arrived-- did you send them off yourself?" Later, in October, 1931, Gill writes "No-- v. sorry-- no T & C title pp. left," probably referring to the edition of Troilus and Criseyde that he illustrated for the Golden Cockerel Press, published in 1927. Together with a large envelope addressed by Gill to Cleverdon in a calligraphic hand. The envelope bears part of a red wax seal and is postmarked 1932. All of the correspondence is in fine condition.

        While England Slept

      This is the precursor to Churchill's great war speeches.  This is the first U.S. edition, first printing in dust jacket.  The British first edition was given the politically palatable title "Arms and the Covenant". The U.S. title is a bit more honest. The book contains a collection of speeches spanning the years 1928 to 1938 criticizing British foreign policy and warning prophetically of the coming danger. The world remembers the resolute war leader to whom the British entrusted their fate, but it is easy to forget the years leading up to the war which Churchill spent persistent, eloquent, and largely unheeded. Churchill bibliographer Frederick Woods called this edition "probably the most crucial volume of speeches that he ever published".  As testimony to the book's importance, a copy of While England Slept lay on "President Roosevelt's bedside table, with key passages, including an analysis of the president's peace initiative, underscored." (William Manchester's The Last Lion, Volume II, p.305)  Offered here is a very good first edition, first printing in a first printing dust jacket.  The blue cloth binding is square, clean, and tight with sharp corners, bright silver lettering and red banners, and virtually no wear.  The sole exterior flaw is an apparent binding error - a slight, curving crease to the cloth to the upper third of the spine and a slight blemish in the red title banner just below the second line of the title.  This is a regrettable but honest flaw that is clearly not the product of wear.  The contents are clean and tight.  We find no spotting.  A single previous owner's name is inked to the ffep.  The red-stained top edge remains notably dark and unfaded, marred only by a small stain at the fore edge.  The untrimmed fore edge and bottom edges are age-toned, but otherwise quite clean.  The correct first printing dust jacket is bright and clean, featuring vivid, entirely unfaded red color on the jacket spine.  The jacket is also unclipped, still bearing the original $4.00 price on the front flap.  There is modest overall soiling and wear to the jacket extremities, with shallow chipping to the edges, mild wear to the hinges and flap folds, and a few short, closed tears.  The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.  Bibliographic reference: Cohen A107.2.a, Woods/ICS A44(b.1). Langworth p.193.

        JOYOUS RESURRECTION

      Prague, 1928. Oblong octavo. (13)ff. One of fifty copies. A guide for children explaining each of the twelve feasts of the Russian Orthodox church, as well as the Resurrection, with bright, hand-colored illustrations based on the church's traditional icons. The book begins with the Resurrection, the greatest feast of the Orthodox Church, and describes the others in chronological order, beginning with Mary's birth and ending with the Exaltation of the Life-Creating Cross. The fourth feast, the Nativity of Christ, depicts the Virgin Mary at the center of the image holding the Christ Child, surrounded by angels, animals, and the magi bearing gifts. The text is in Church Slavonic, the liturgical language of the Orthodox church, and is dedicated to Bishop Sergei, who became Bishop of Prague in the 1920s. This book is similar to hand-made texts that parents created during World War I to teach their children about the holidays. Some slight fraying to corners of covers, else fine in stab-bound iridescent pink and green brocade cloth.

        While England Slept

      This is the precursor to Churchill's great war speeches.  This is the first U.S. edition, first printing in dust jacket.  The British first edition was given the politically palatable title "Arms and the Covenant". The U.S. title is a bit more honest. The book contains a collection of speeches spanning the years 1928 to 1938 criticizing British foreign policy and warning prophetically of the coming danger. The world remembers the resolute war leader to whom the British entrusted their fate, but it is easy to forget the years leading up to the war which Churchill spent persistent, eloquent, and largely unheeded. Churchill bibliographer Frederick Woods called this edition "probably the most crucial volume of speeches that he ever published".  As testimony to the book's importance, a copy of While England Slept lay on "President Roosevelt's bedside table, with key passages, including an analysis of the president's peace initiative, underscored." (William Manchester's The Last Lion, Volume II, p.305)  Offered here is a very good first edition, first printing in a first printing dust jacket.  The blue cloth binding is square, clean, and tight with sharp corners, bright silver lettering and red banners, and virtually no wear.  The sole exterior flaw is an apparent binding error - a slight, curving crease to the cloth to the upper third of the spine and a slight blemish in the red title banner just below the second line of the title.  This is a regrettable but honest flaw that is clearly not the product of wear.  The contents are clean and tight.  We find no spotting.  A single previous owner's name is inked to the ffep.  The red-stained top edge remains notably dark and unfaded, marred only by a small stain at the fore edge.  The untrimmed fore edge and bottom edges are age-toned, but otherwise quite clean.  The correct first printing dust jacket is bright and clean, featuring vivid, entirely unfaded red color on the jacket spine.  The jacket is also unclipped, still bearing the original $4.00 price on the front flap.  There is modest overall soiling and wear to the jacket extremities, with shallow chipping to the edges, mild wear to the hinges and flap folds, and a few short, closed tears.  The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.  Bibliographic reference: Cohen A107.2.a, Woods/ICS A44(b.1). Langworth p.193.

Walter Joseph Phillips (October 25, 1884 – July 5, 1963) was an English-born Canadian painter and woodcutter, acclaimed as one of Canada's most famous printmakers and for popularizing the colour woodcut in the style of the Japanese. His artistic career spanned from the 1900s through the 1940s, during which time his work was exhibited throughout North America and Great Britain. In 1940 he was asked to become a resident artist at the Banff Centre, then known as the Banff School of Fine Arts, where he played an important role in the development of their visual arts program. Its Walter Phillips Gallery, which focuses on contemporary art, is named after him. The Glenbow Museum in Calgary, Alberta holds an extensive collection of Phillips works and a research archive..
