        City of San Diego

      San Diego.: The Marston Company.. 1928.. Color poster, pictographic / pictorial map, 27 1/4 x 21 1/2 inches on sheet 29 1/2 x 23 3/4 inches. Professionally mounted on linen, minimising fold lines (where originally folded as issued), tiny area of paper loss at top right fold margin, slight separation to centre right fold edge. Tiny infill at one fold intersection. Overall very good bright condition. Jo Mora's wonderful combination of fun, historical knowledge and sense of color are highlighted in this detailed bird's eye view style map of San Diego - what there was of it, since most of the map is green (agriculture and the country) or blue for the sea. However an indication of the future is seen in a pictograph marked SUBDIVISION with a salesman expansively gesticulating to a couple with a bag marked IOWA. At sea a lookout on the ship Cabrillo exclaims "Caramba! You'd never know the old place now." The border depicts historical events. At lower left are images of six buildings and fantastical beasts who are to be seen at Balboa Park. The map was published by the Marston Company in celebration of its Golden Anniversary. .

        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.

This is the first edition to appear under Asbury's edit, and it was very popular, even though it appeared during Prohibition.

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]

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.

      Mermod, (Lausanne 1928) - Relié pleine peau caramel 22 x 18, titre et filets mélasse, couverture non conservée. Cet illustré prolonge par son thème "Le cirque" du même Ramuz, que les amateurs d'images auront le bon goût de rechercher dans la version de Théodore Strawinsky, enrichie de huit lithographies (Au Verseau, 1936). Un scoop: il existe des suites à toutes marges de ces cinq estampes d'Auberjonois, sous portefeuille artisanal avec couverture calligraphiée main; nous avons eu l'intense plaisir d'en rapatrier une et la coupable satisfaction de voir qu'elle avait échappé à Bringolf & co.Nous possédons un jeu d' épreuves avec variante de texte et de couverture sur demande.Volume broché nickel pour grand collectionneur devant l'éternel ou bien défraîchi en réserve à prix très adouci pour amateur moins bien muni.[Bringolf 36] Édition originale. L'un des 300 exemplaires numérotés sur vélin du Marais, après 3 Japon et 6 Chine.

        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.
