        The Set-up (Signed Limited Edition)

      New York: Covici Friede, 1928. First Edition. First Edition. One of 275 copies (this being No. 53) SIGNED and numbered by the author. Illustrated by Alexander King. Quarter-cloth, with art deco-style, patterned paper-covered boards. Very slight fading to the lettering on the spine label, else Fine, in a Very Good example of the scarce slipcase. Slipcase has no loss, but has some professional mends along a couple of the edges. An epic poem about an aging Afrcan-American boxer and his last night in the ring, which met with unexpected popularity on its release and had several subsequent printings. The signed limited edition and first trade edition have become extremely scarce over time. Basis for the seminal 1949 film noir directed by Robert Wise and starring Robert Ryan 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.

        Bambi A Life In The Woods Foreword by John Galsworthy, Translated by Whittaker Chambers

      New York: Simon & Schuster. NF/NF. July 1928. 1st American Edition. Hardcover; 1st Printing. This is the 1st edition/1st printing of the trade edition, stating on the copyright page 'First Printing in America, July, 1928' and having the same 1928 date on title and copyright pages. Printed in English for the first time in both the U.S. and U.K. in 1928. Translated by Whittaker Chambers and with illustrations by Kurt Wiese. The book is bound in green cloth with gilt spine printing and a gilt deer on the front panel. The illustrations are B&W, except for the pastedown/end page illustrations which are in greens and browns. The book is straight, clean, tight and has no handwriting or soiling; there is just a very slight amount of shelf-bumping to the cloth of the spine ends, else fine. The well preserved near fine dustjacket is crisp, clean and bright, with the price and 4 flap corners having been clipped, very slight darkening to the spine, 1 tiny edge chip and a few tiny edge nicks to upper spine and flap fold ends. The dustjacket is probably from a later printing, perhaps acknowledging sales in the original German and by the advance subscriptions from the Book of the Month Club, as it has a '75th-85th Thousand' statement at the bottom front panel. Rare to find any dustjacket with this book, particularly one in this condition. Rather a complicated printing history, as stated by the Simon & Schuster pamphlet laid in (so most likely a review copy) issued by Richard L. Simon and M. Lincoln Schuster, stating that 'Bambi was first published in Berlin by S. Fischer in 1921. It sold less than 2,000 copies. In 1926 it was published again in Vienna by Paul Zsolnay. In two years it has sold over 20,000 copies in the new German edition.' The pamphlet also speaks of the then 2-year-old Book of the Month Club having subscribed before publication of the trade edition for 50,000 copies of Bambi for July (same month it was published in trade edition by Simon & Schuster). There is also an 'Inner Sanctum at Simon & Schuster' statement on the page following the last text page, stating that Simon & Schuster were so enthusiastic about Bambi that 'they'd ordered a first edition trade printing of 75,000 copies' (quite large for that time). Made into a Disney movie, beloved by all, in 1942. ; B&W Illustrations; 8-1/16" x 5-5/8"; 293 pages .

        The Bridge of San Luis Rey

      New York: Albert & Charles Boni. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. FIRST AMERICAN EDITION, SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY THORNTON WILDER on front free endpaper: "For Ida Freedman / Thornton Wilder" The Bridge of San Luis Rey "proved to be one of the great surprises in the history of American publishing. Its sponsors recognized its original beauty and the high quality of its style. So it was issued as one of those things 'which add dignity to a publisher's list.' It became the Pulitzer Prize novel for 1928, and was for two or three years a best-seller" (Vernon Loggins, I Hear America). In telling the story of a fatal bridge collapse set in eighteenth-century Peru, Wilder "sets forth themes that recur in [his] fiction: love, brotherhood, tolerance, and faith. Its last statement applies to many of Wilder's works: 'There is a land of the living and a land of the dead and the bridge is love, the only survival, the only meaning.' Wilder was unprepared for the acclaim that followed the publication of The Bridge of San Luis Rey. In the New Republic (28 Dec. 1927), Malcolm Cowley called the book 'perfect in itself. . . . The texture is completely unified; nothing falls short of its mark; nothing exceeds it; and the book as a whole is like some faultless temple erected to a minor deity'" (American National Biography). New York: Albert & Charles Boni, 1927. Octavo, original cloth, original dust jacket. Text block with a few splits (as often) but holding; cloth clean. Rare dust jacket with a few small chips to head of spine and light spine toning. Overall, an extraordinary copy.

        Tidskrift för ny generation.

      Nr (1), 2-4. Helsingfors respektive Tammerfors, 1928-29. Fyra häften i fint skick. Första och fjärde häftet med dedikationer till Åke Claesson från "Quosego", skrivna av Gunnar Björling.. Allt som utkom. Redaktör var Cid Erik Tallqvist och förläggare var Söderström & co i Helsingfors. Genom att denna modernistiskt inriktade tidskrift lästes och blev forum även för de yngre rikssvenska författarna, kan den sägas på allvar inleda en tradition av kortlivade publikationer med fadermördande uppsåt som funnit många efterföljare i den svenska 1900-talslitteraturen. Det litterära innehållet var uppbyggt runt kvartetten Gunnar Björling, Elmer Diktonius (även under signaturen "Polypen"), Rabbe Enckell och Henry Parland. Andra bidragsgivare var exempelvis Olof Enckell, Hagar Olsson, Nicken Malmström, Ragnar Granit, Harry Blomberg, Erik Asklund, Artur Lundkvist, Josef Kjellgren och Harry Martinson. Namnet Quosego är en sammanställning av två latinska pronomen "quos" och "ego" som kan översättas "er" "jag", och alltså inte kan stå tillsammans utan ett sammanhang. Sammanhanget är i det här fallet Vergilius Aeniden där "Quos, ego" är inledningen på ett utrop av Neptunus då han ämnade kväsa några okynniga vindar. Åke Claesson var vid denna tid skådespelare vid Svenska teatern i Helsingfors

His indomitable spirit and fairness won favorable recognition in all parts of the world. Although repeatedly hampered by unfair racing tactics on the part of his opponents because of his color, the Major's superior skill and untiring power inevitably brought him to the tape a victor."

        Arms and the Covenant

      This is the precursor to Churchill's great war speeches, a premium example of the British first edition, only printing, in the pale blue first state dust jacket.  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 turned, 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 the U.S. edition 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). Only 5,000 copies of this first and only British impression were printed, of which only 3,381 were sold with this first state dust jacket.  Here is a near-fine copy in a near-fine dust jacket.  The dust jacket is entirely complete - absolutely no losses and  unclipped, with the original front flap price intact.  Moreover, the dust jacket shows almost no wrinkling or wear and does not suffer any of the spotting to which this edition proved prone.  The sole jacket flaw of note is some toning, particularly to the spine.  The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.  The volume beneath is likewise near-fine.   The blue cloth binding is square, clean, and tight, retaining perfect unfaded color, bright spine gilt, and flawed only by two tiny corner bumps.  The contents remain notably crisp with absolutely no spotting or previous ownership marks.  Typical transfer browning to the half title corresponds with the dust jacket flap and confirms what the excellent binding already tells us - that this copy has always been jacketed.  Though unspotted, the fore and bottom edges are age-toned.  The blue-stained top edge retains uniform, if slightly dulled, color.  Bibliographic reference: Cohen A107.1, Woods/ICS A44(a), Langworth p.191

        Quantised Singularities in the Electromagnetic FieldLondon: Harrison, 1931. First edition.

      First printing of Dirac's seminal paper in which he predicted the existence of the positron and in general anti-matter. "The prediction and subsequent discovery of the positron rank among the great triumphs of modern physics". (Pais, The Genius of Science).<br/><br/> After Dirac in 1928 had published his famous relativistic wave equation for the electron, he spent the following years working on an interpretation of the negative energy solutions of the equation. In 1930, he published his <i>hole-theory</i> and tried to identify the holes with protons. However, as pointed out by several others, the theory required that these counter particles to the electron must have the same mass as the electron, and would annihilate into pure energy upon colliding with the electron. In 1931 [in the offered article] Dirac bit the bullet and postulated: "A hole, if there is one, would be a new kind of particle, unknown to experimental physics. We may call such a particle an anti-electron [latter named the positron]. Theory at present is quite unable to suggest a reason why there should be any differences between electron and protons". <br/><br/> Thus, Dirac had predicted the existence of both the positron and antiproton. "Dirac was one of the greatest theoretical physicists in the twentieth century. He is best known for his important and elegant contributions to the formulation of quantum mechanics; for his quantum theory of the emission and absorption of radiation, which inaugurated quantum electrodynamics; for his relativistic equation of the electron; for his 'prediction' of the positron and of antimatter; and for his 'large number hypothesis' in cosmology. Not only his results but also his methods influenced the way much of theoretical physics is done today, extending or improving the mathematical formalism before looking for its systematic interpretation." (DSB).<br/><br/> In 1932 C.D. Anderson produced positrons in cloud chambers exposed to radiation. Antiprotons were observed in 1954 by E. G. Segrè and O. Chanberlain.. Pp 60-72 in Proceedings of the Royal Society of London, Series A, Vol. 133, No. 821. The complete issue (September 1) offered here in original wrappers, a very fine copy without any markings or institutional stamps. Rare in wrappers

In two years it has sold over 20,000 copies in the new German edition.&#39; The pamphlet also speaks of the then 2-year-old Book of the Month Club having subscribed before publication of the trade edition for 50,000 copies of Bambi for July (same month it was published in trade edition by Simon & Schuster). There is also an &#39;Inner Sanctum at Simon & Schuster&#39; statement on the page following the last text page, stating that Simon & Schuster were so enthusiastic about Bambi that &#39;they&#39;d ordered a first edition trade printing of 75,000 copies&#39; (quite large for that time). Made into a Disney movie, beloved by all, in 1942. ; B&W Illustrations; 8-1/16" x 5-5/8"; 293 pages .

Scotland Jan Tschichold no. 88 & page 72)."Under the influence of the painters László Moholy-Nagy and El Lissitzky, who were making harmonies and tensions out of extremley contrasting and imaginative forms, under the influence of the Bauhaus exhibition in Weimar, in a holy crusade against the horrible typography of the day, Tschichold believed that salvation lay in the rejection of the rule that all typography must be symmetrical, and the proclamation that sans serif (then still known as 'grotesque') was the only correct typeface for nearly all and every occasion."

        Bernice Abbott American Photographer. Signed

      New York: Berenice Abbott [1928] 1982, 1928 Abbott, Berenice. [James Joyce]. PORTRAIT OF JAMES JOYCE. Signed. Number 28 of only 100 extraordinary original 13 3/4 x 10 3/4 in. (34.9 x 27.3 cm) Gelatin silver print, printed later of the iconic image of the author photographed by Bernice Abbott, numbered & signed by her on the mount, & with her studio stamp on the verso which states: "Photograph / printed for / limited edition of / Bernice Abbott American Photographer / Bernice Abbott / Abbott, Maine 04406". Framed & glazed in a superb stained brown mahogany frame. Reference: O&#39;Neal, Berenice Abbott: American Photographer, p. 44; Photo Poche Press, Berenice Abbott, pl. 23; Szarkowski, Looking at Photographs: 100 Pictures from the Collection of the Museum of Modern Art, p. 98. A scarce portrait of Joyce, who was photographed in the 1920&#39;s by Abbott in Paris. Abbott had been Man Ray&#39;s photo assistant from 1923-25, and opened her own portrait studio in 1926, at 44 Rue du Bac. She returned to New York in 1929. Abbott subsequently made a few new prints in the late 1950&#39;s before this final printing in the 1980&#39;s. A beautiful fine image. "One of most moving of her portraits is one reproduced here of James Joyce. The grey, strangely lifeless, enveloping light finds its way everywhere, describing without emphasis or favor the writer&#39;s stickpin, his hands, his right ear, his fine beaver hat, the deep tiredness of his elegant slouch. He seems the survivor of too difficult a battle, shell-shocked by the terrible labor of putting so many words in the precisely proper order." - "Looking at Photographs" by John Szarkowski . Signed. First Edition, New Printing.
