        Pan and Peacocks

      Four Seas Company Boston: Four Seas Company. 1928. First. First edition. Cloth and decorated papercovered boards, with paper spine label. Slight paper remnants on the boards, and slight foxing and staining to endpapers, a very good copy in a fair only example of the rare dustwrapper, with a large tidemark at the lower extremities, and a couple of long tears. Inscribed by the author: "For Hazel B. Tallman, In memory of a voyage which she did much to make charming. W. Adolphe Roberts. September 23, 1931." Roberts was a prolific black journalist of West Indian origins, who was later known for his travel books of that region. He wrote the first true detective novel by an African-American, as well as volumes of both travel and poetry. The author's third book, and second volume of poetry, a very uncommon title, and the only copy we've seen in jacket. .

        Le Retour du Tchad.

      NRF, Librairie Gallimard [1928], Paris - 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.

        The Bon Vivant's Companion, Or, How to Mix Drinks,

      Alfred A. KNopf, New York 1928 - 8vo. li,(3),169,(1)pp. Yellow cloth printed in Aquatone by the Edward Stern Co. Top edge stained green. Illustrated. Index. Thomas' book first appeared in 1862. This is the first edition to appear under Asbury's edit, and it was very popular, even though it appeared during Prohibition. There is a stain on the foredge of the rear board with a light stain on the foredge of the final 10 pages else this is a near fine copy. The scarce dustwrapper has light foredge stains, lacks a bit at the top edge on front and back, is rubbed, split at folds, a few closed marginal tears, and has an archival tape repair to the inside of the spine; still it gives a very good appearance. Finding this book in it dustwrapper is a rare experience. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Gli adornatori del libro in Italia. Recensione di Marcus De Rubris. Volume IX. Ultimo della serie contenente 240 tavole e 475 disegni di 120 artisti italiani. Arricchito da 25 disegni dell'illustre Maestro Adolfo De Carolis. Arricchito da 64 xilografie dell'illustre Maestro Adolfo De Carolis. Compilato a cura di Cesare Ratta, direttore della Scuola d'Arte Tipografica del Comune di Bologna.

      Cesare Ratta,, Bologna, 1928 - In-4° grande (370x270mm), pp. XII, (42), 237, (2), brossura editoriale con titolo in rosso e in nero e riproduzione de "La Gloria" dal Trittico Galileiano del De Carolis. 240 tavole con 486 disegni (xilografie, carboncini, sanguigne, ex-libris, imprese, ecc.) di 120 artisti (fra di essi: Branca, Buscaroli, Cambellotti, Cisari, Mino Maccari, Mantelli, Marussig, Morbiducci, Mussino, Pietro Parigi, Patocchi, Mario Pompei, Antonio Rubino, Scarpelli, Servolini, Sinopico, Sturani, Terzi, Tofano, Vellani-Marchi, ecc.) riprodotte a colori o in b.n. f.t. da matrici originali, nonché 25 disegni e 64 xilografie di De Carolis f.t. Fioriture alla brossura, segni d'uso ed etichetta di privata biblioteca al dorso; altra etichetta di privata biblioteca alla prima carta. Buon esemplare. Prima edizione, impressa in 500 esemplari numerati su carta di lusso appositamente fabbricata (n° 81). "Include gli artisti più significativi nell'ambito dell'illustrazione degli anni Venti. Dall'analisi degli oltre 600 artisti presentati dal Ratta, emergono con significativa frequenza le opere di De Carolis e Cisari, seguite da quelle di Bruno da Osimo, Servolini, Gamba, Wenter Marini, Haas Triverio, Marussig, Morbiducci, Patocchi, Cambellotti, Pavone Grotta, Pettinelli, Zanverdiani, Ricci, Branca, Nonni, Disertori, Pandolfi, Antony De Witt e Sartorio; artisti tutti attivi nell'ambito dell'illustrazione, ma rigorosamente provenienti da quello dell'incisione xilografica. Presenza dominante, la cui scomparsa induce Ratta ad aprire il IX vol. degli "Adornatori" con un inserto di 30 tavv. delle sue opere, sarà Adolfo de Carolis, seguito da Giulio Cisari (1902-79), architetto, pittore, incisore e cartellonista. I voll. di questa raccolta sono tutti caratterizzati dalla massima raffinatezza tipografica e riproduttiva: tutte le incisioni sono state tirate direttamente dalle matrici originali e molti voll. contengono inserti in forma di cartoline, copertine ed estratti originali forniti direttamente dai relativi editori. La conseguente tiratura limitata, fin dal loro apparire, li collocò nel rarefatto e goloso universo dei bibliofili" (Pallottino, Storia dell'illustrazione italiana, p. 267-268). Pallottino, cit.

        Vol. 17 of 29 Atlases of Insurance Maps for Brooklyn. Canarsie

      Sanborn Map Company, New York 1928 - This volume includes Paerdegat and Fresh Creek Basins before artificial widening, Shore Parkway and the Long Island Railroad, and multiple pools, islets and marshes in Jamaica Bay. The Sanborn map collection consists of a uniform series of large scale maps, dating from 1867 to the present depicting the commercial, industrial, and residential sections of some twelve thousand cities and towns in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The maps were designed to assist fire insurance agents in determining the degree of hazard associated with a particular property and therefore show the size, shape and construction of dwellings, commercial buildings, and factories as well as fire walls locations of windows and doors, sprinkler systems, and types of roofs. The maps also indicate widths and names of streets, property boundaries, building use, and house and block numbers. They show locations of water mains, giving their dimensions, and of fire alarm boxes and hydrants. Sanborn maps are an unrivaled source of information about the structure and use of buildings in American Cities. The collection includes some fifty thousand editions of fire insurance maps comprising an estimated seven hundred thousand individual sheets. The Library of Congress holdings represent the largest extant collection of maps produced by the Sanborn Map Company. The majority of the maps were acquired by the Library through copyright deposit, but the collection was substantially enriched in 1967 when the Bureau of the Census transferred to the Library of Congress a complete set. The 1,899 loose-leaf binders were particularly noteworthy because they included later editions than those previously acquired by the Library. The Bureau of the Census set of maps had been regularly updated by printed, paste-on corrections supplied by the Sanborn Map Company, whereas the Library of Congress copies were retained in the form in which they were copyrighted. Atlas. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Massive elephant folio. Decorative calligraphic titles, indices, and key maps. Contains a set of 101 detailed maps of eastern Brooklyn and Jamaica Bay along with changes recorded on paste-on correction slips through 1974. Quarter leather binding with gilt title on front and spine. Large tear to spine of original protective canvas cover. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        ANGELS AND EARTHLY CREATURES A SEQUENCE OF SONNETS

      Henley-on-Thames: The Borough Press, 1928.. Printed stiff boards, in decorated wrapper. Minor offsetting from the wrappers to the prelims, otherwise fine in lightly worn decorative paper wrapper (which has a one inch tear at the top of the spine fold). First edition. One of a total edition of fifty-one copies for private distribution. This is copy #10, and is both signed by Wylie, and inscribed by her: "For Thornton with love from Elinor Christmas 1928." The recipient was, of course, Thornton Wilder, close friend of Wylie and Benet. Wylie intended to sign and number all fifty-one copies, but she died of a stroke on 16 December, while on a Christmas visit to New York, before more than a few copies were signed and numbered. BAL describes one of the copies at Yale inscribed by Wylie to her husband (there is another such inscribed 'family' copy at Yale as well), and we know of one other inscribed copy (#16, inscribed to the Colums). We have handled at least four unsigned, unnumbered copies, and the Goodwin copy (I:291) appears not to have been signed as well. The OCLC has thirteen locations (including Yale), and presumably more than a few of these are unsigned and unnumbered, including two there recorded which correspond to unsigned copies we sold. The text of these nineteen sonnets varies from that printed in the larger collection issued under the cover title the following year. Next to INCIDENTAL NUMBERS, the author's least common book, and when signed and numbered, a marketplace rarity to conjure with among the cognoscenti. BAL 23520.

        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.
