        THE LIVES OF THE NOBLE GRECIANS AND ROMANES, COMPARED TOGETHER BY THAT GRAVE LEARNED PHILOSOPHER & HISTORIOGRAPHER, PLUTARKE OF CHÆRONEA

      Stratford-on-Avon: Shakespeare Head Press, 1928. No. 6 OF 100 SETS on handmade paper and in the deluxe binding, SIGNED BY THE ARTIST (along with 500 regular copies). Hardcover. 241 x 159 mm (9 1/2 x 6 1/4"). Eight volumes. Translated from the Greek into French by James Amyot and from French into English by Thomas North. No. 6 OF 100 SETS on handmade paper and in the deluxe binding, SIGNED BY THE ARTIST (along with 500 regular copies). Publisher's black half morocco over burnt orange linen by Morley of Oxford (stamp-signed on front pastedown), raised bands decorated with thick and thin gilt rules, top edges gilt. With tondo portrait of author on title page, portrait of Elizabeth I at head of dedication page, and portrait of the appropriate subject at the beginning of each biography. With the laid-in carbon copy of the description from Philip C. Duschnes, describing the set (perhaps in the 1960s or '70s) as "in perfect condition." Franklin, p. 235; Ransom, p. 15. One cover with tiny blemish and vague dent to tail edge, but BEAUTIFULLY WELL PRESERVED, entirely clean, fresh, and bright internally, and in virtually unworn bindings. This is the very fine deluxe version of the Shakespeare Head Plutarch, printed on thick, beautiful Batchelor handmade paper. It aims to be faithful to North's original 1579 version, with its quaint spelling and punctuation, its inconsistent use of capitalization and italics, and its woodcut portrait busts of the subjects of the biographies. These busts have been reproduced here for about half of Plutarch's subjects, but when more authentic portraits have been available from ancient coins or medals, they have been substituted as the headpieces. Born in the latter part of the first century, Plutarch conceived of his 46 biographies (not counting those no longer extant) as studies in character, chronicles of how his famous Greeks and Romans responded to the vicissitudes of fortune. He is a very important source for both Greek and Roman history, and over the centuries has been one of the West's most influential authors. Renaissance scholars could find Latin translations in print beginning in 1470, but not until 1579, when Thomas North issued his version from the French of Amyot, were the "Lives" available in English. DNB praises the work as "admirably vivid and robust prose." North (1535?-1601?) dedicated the work, no small undertaking, to Queen Elizabeth, and it inspired several of Shakespeare's plays. Our deluxe version of this edition is much more highly prized than the 500 regular copies and commands a substantially higher price, especially when found, as here, in essentially unused condition.

"Expounds original hypotheses of space flight that the author began to formulate in 1908 independently of the rocketry and astronautical ideas of pioneers Konstantin E. Tsiolkovskii, R. H. Goddard, and Herman Oberth. Calculates optimum rocket shapes, motion of a rocket in a vacuum, and safe acceleration speeds for manned flight. Presents the earliest known suggestions of atomic or nuclear rocket propulsion for planetary space missions, and considers the possibility of extraterrestrial life" (Pisano and Lewis). "One of the earliest and really serious papers on interplanetary travel and on the exploration of the upper atmosphere, by means of rockets. Esnault-Pelleterie"s study is independent of the slightly earlier treatise, in German, by Oberth, which he states he had not seen. The author devotes special attention to the problem of the escape velocity necessary to overcome the earth's gravitational pull, which he estimates at 10,000 meters per second. It was Esnault-Pelterie who coined the term Astronautics for the science of space flight. The present paper appeared as special supplement of the BULLETIN DE LA SOCIÉTÉ ASTRONOMIQUE DE FRANCE, année 42, with a separate half-title and title- page" (Interlibrum). Ciancone 65.

        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.

        MEMOIRS OF A FOX-HUNTING MAN

      London: Faber and Gwyer Ltd. , 1928. Limited ed. Hardcover. Very Good +. 6 x 9 in. 395 pp. Blue cloth boards with gilt lettering on spine. A limited, signed edition on hand-made paper of 260, of which this is number 202. Condition of the book is VERY GOOD+ ; just the merest hint of shelf wear, covers extraordinarily clean and unblemished. Spine is sunned. Binding is tight and hinges have no play whatsover. The text is bright, clean and unmarked, with just a hint of foxing to the endpapers. 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.

        La Divina Commedia

      London,: Nonesuch Press, 1928.. 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.
