        The House At Pooh Corner

      London, London, Methuen & Co.,, 1928. With Decorations by Ernest H. Sheppard Octavo. Finely bound by The Chelsea Bindery in full pink morocco, titles and pictorial centre tool to spine gilt, raised bands, rule to boards gilt, multiple decorative blocks to boards gilt, twin rule to turn-ins, gilt edges. Illustrated by E. H. Shepard. A fine copy. First edition, first impression. The little bear described by Christopher Milne in his autobiography as his "inseparable companion" has also become the inseparable companion of generations of children, often remaining the object of that faith late into adulthood. First appearing in 1924, along with his troop of animal friends, in When We Were Very Young, Winnie-the-Pooh was immortalised in Milne's two volumes of poetry and two story books. The illustrations by E. H. Shepard are probably as much loved as Milne's words - the combination of their talents making the books' appeal so remarkably enduring.

      London: Methuen, (1928). First edition. With illustrations by Ernest H. Shepard.

Included is a 4 1/2 x 7 inch loose page of hand-laid paper with ink sketches of WWI officers, which was in this book when we bought it. I can't prove that they are by Sassoon, but they bear a striking similarity to a few others I researched online, notably sketches on letters from the front, circa 1917. See photograph provided and decide for yourself. A lovely copy of this rare and cherished book, with a likely terrific bonus in the sketch. Sport/Memoir. RGR.

Folio, with 42 plates (many double-page), spine moderately sunned, binding a little thumbed; very good overall in original gilt decorated orange Japon vellum boards. A magnificent edition of the Divine Comedy illustrated with 42 beautifully printed plates from the original sketches by Sandro Botticelli. This is undoubtedly one of the finest books produced by the Nonesuch Press in their long and fruitful history.Botticelli's drawings are delicate and understated, and this is the first occasion they have been married with Dante's text in the form of a printed book. The plates are remarkably for their subtlety and faith to the original artworks, and are were specially produced by French artisan printmaker Daniel Jacomet, who is now renowned for his pochoir stencil work for Picasso and other eminent artists of the era.The Divine Comedy is printed in the original vernacular Italian alongside the cherished English language translation of Henry Francis Cary. In sympathy with Botticelli's fifteenth-century illustration, the type has been set in blado italic reminiscent of incunabula of the era.Edition limited to 1475 numbered copies.Dreyfus, A History of the Nonesuch Press, 50.

        Films of the Year: 1927-1928 (First Edition)

      London: The Studio 1928, Ltd. First Edition. First Edition. Near Fine in a bright, Near Fine dust jacket.From an era when most film books tended to be focused on the wrong actors, the wrong films, and the wrong directors, this title may stand above all others in terms of pure predictive genius, as well as quality of presentation. Looking only at the films of 1927-1928 and beginning with an essay completely devoid of pretension, Herring's book focuses on cinema as an art form rather than an entertainment, with a strict focus on the directors he considers to be the leaders in the field, including Charlie Chaplin, Man Ray, G.W. Pabst, Alfred Hitchcock, Frank Borzage, Fritz Lang, F.W. Murnau, Erich Pommer, Raoul Walsh, Rex Ingram, Fritz Werdhausen, Herik Galison, Constantin Eggert, Edwin Carewe, Herbert Brenon, Victor Seastrom, Ludwig Berger, Karl Koch, Fred Niblo,Gustav Pauli, Franz Koch, and Francis Bruguiere. The introductory essay is followed by 32 full-page duotone plates featuring stunning still images from the films of the directors noted. Laid in are two advertisements for other books by the publisher, and a vintage label from a French bookseller is present at the bottom right corner of the front pastedown. A cornerstone volume for any library on world cinema.

Earhart" by the famous aviator as well as by the publisher and containing, as issued by the publisher in a cellophane envelope mounted on the front pastedown, a miniature silk American flag carried by Earhart in her flight on the "Friendship" from Boston to Wales. Although Earhart was not the pilot of this flight, with it she made history by becoming the FIRST WOMAN TO TRAVEL BY AIR ACROSS THE ATLANTIC. Not only is this volume signed by this famous figure, but it contains an actual artifact from that historic flight. Earhart was lost at sea in her attempt, shortly before her fortieth birthday in 1937, to become the first woman to fly around the world. After her disappearance the most extensive air and sea search in naval history to date took place. After spending $4 million and scouring 250,000 square miles of ocean over a two-week period, the United States government reluctantly called off the operation.

        The Set-up (First Edition, review copy)

      New York: Covici Friede, 1928. First Edition. First Edition. REVIEW COPY, with a letter from the American Anthropological Society laid in, announcing the book's release, with comparisons to the author's previous book, "The Wild Party," and a mention that the Society has obtained 50 of the 275 copies of the Deluxe Edition, available for order. Near Fine in a Near Fine example of the scarce dust jacket. Jacket is exceptional, with only a bit of silverfish damage along the spine panel to note, and very slight, even fading to same. An epic poem about an aging African-American boxer, extremely popular on its release, resulting in a number of later printings. The trade first edition was issued simultaneously with a signed limited edition, both of which have become extremely scarce over time. Basis for the seminal 1949 film noir directed by Robert Wise and starring Robert Wise and Audrey Totter. While the poem's ominous mood was maintained in the film, its racial issues were replaced with a complex psychological study more consistent with the noir style.
