        The Gangs of New York

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1928-01-01. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1928. 382 pp. Illustrated. First edition, first printing. (Dated 1928 on title page. No additional printings indicated on copyright page.) Near fine hardcover in Good original jacket that presents better than that. Clean pages. Light wear at edges, bumping to corners, else fine. Jacket is unusually nice-looking but a foolish former owner put clear masking tape all over the verso and slightly trimmed the front flap. The tape is visible only at the tips and the jacket is impressive otherwise-- no fading to spine panel, just a bit of light chipping and rubbing at edges and a few light nicks, price intact ($4.00). Scarce thus.True crime author Herbert Asbury's most famous work, which was the basis of Martin Scorsese's 2002 film starring Leonard DiCaprio and Daniel Day-Lewis. An enjoyable read that's held up well over the years.

        Hafriyat al-Fustat (Majmu`at al-manazir al-futughrafiyah). Fouilles dal Foustât (Album de photographies).

      Cairo, Mathaf al-Fann al-Islami, 1928. - Folio (280 x 382 mm). (2), 5, (1) pp., 32 photographic plates. Original green half cloth with printed covers. First Arabic edition. Atlas of plates intended to accompany Aly Bahgat's 1928 Arabic translation of the original French edition of his "Fouilles dal Foustât" (Paris, 1921). The city of Fustat, the first capital of Egypt under Arab rule, reached its peak in the 12th century, with a population of approximately 200,000. It was the center of administrative power in Egypt until it was ordered burned in 1168 by its own vizier, Shawar, to keep its wealth out of the hands of the invading Crusaders. The remains of the city were eventually absorbed by nearby Cairo. Today, Fustat is part of Old Cairo, with few buildings remaining from its days as capital, though there have been many archaeological digs which have taken advantage of the wealth of buried material in the area. Many ancient items recovered from the site are on display in Cairo's Museum of Islamic Art. - Table of contents and captions in Arabic and French. At head of title: Dar al-Athar al-Islamiyah / Musée de l'Art Arabe. - Corners insignificantly bumped; altogether well-preserved. OCLC 28312546. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Charles Cotton and his River

      Manchester Sherratt & Hughes 1928. VG : in very good condition with chipped and torn dust jacket. Minor yellowing to pages 1st edition Green hardback cloth cover with gilt lettering 279mm x 213mm (11" x 8"). ix, 191pp. 13 full-page plates and 5 pairs of mounted chapter head/tail-pieces. The Beresford Vale. Cotton wrote part II of Izaac Walton's 'Compleat Angler' (5th edition, 1676) and was born at his father's estate of Beresford, Staffordshire, England. His father was a warm friend of Ben Jonson, Selden, Donne and other illustrious men. As a boy, Cotton travelled in Europe and, in 1656, married Isabella, half-sister of the regicide John Hutchinson. Though a sincere loyalist, he seems to have lived securely enough under Oliver Cromwell's Commonwealth. He inherited his father's estates on the latter's death in 1658, although unprosperous lawsuits led to their gradual decline. In 1653, Izaac Walton published the 'Compleat Angler', one of the most successful English language books ever - reprinted 300 times! Walton and Cotton were close friends and addressed each other as Father and Son. In 1674, Cotton finished his Fishing-House at Beresford, complete with his and Walton's initials entwined in cipher over its entrance. Walton recorded his visit there in the second edition of his book. Around that time, with Walton's approval, Cotton agreed to write some "particular Directions for the taking of a Trout". Thus, in 1676, appeared 'How to angle for a Trout or Grayling in a clear stream' as part II of the fifth edition of the 'Compleat Angler'.This illustrated book is a commentary on Cotton's life, his poetry and - above all - his delightful angling treatise. Best of all, it evokes that wonderful rolling countryside in the valley of the River Dove (where Stuart, the co-owner of the shop grew up!).

        Le Retour du Tchad

      Paris: NRF, Librairie Gallimard. [1928]. First edition, inscribed by Gide on the half-title to fellow author, Julien Green: "a Julien Green en temoignage de tres attentive affection, Andre Gide." This is a splendid association copy. Green, a novelist of American parentage who was born in Paris, was a member of the French Academy -- as was Gide. Green converted to Roman Catholicism in 1916 and was often described as a "Catholic novelist" -- a term he rejected. Still, his novels depict the anguish and despair that result from the conflict between man's spiritual and carnal desires. Gide's novels were banned by the Catholic Church. This title, LE RETOUR DU TCHAD, along with VOYAGE AU CONGO was severely critical of French colonization in Africa. 8vo; hansomely bound by H. Alix in 3/4 crushed chestnut brown morocco and marbled paper boards, spine with gilt lettering, marbled endpapers, t.e.g., original wrappers and backstrip bound in, text browned, else fine.

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.

He won the 1930 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his work on the scattering of light and for the discovery of the effect named after him. He was the first Asian and first non-White to get any Nobel Prize in the sciences. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
