        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

        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. 14, 20, 91. This is the 1st edition/1st printing of the trade edition, stating on the copyright page &#39;First Printing in America, July, 1928&#39; 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 &#39;75th-85th Thousand&#39; 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 &#39;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.&#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 .

(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.

        The Novels & Selected Writings of Daniel Defoe 14 Volumes Large Paper Edition

      Large Paper Edition All fourteen volumes of this complete set are in near fine condition in 1/4 beige buckram and light brown paper covered boards with gilt stamped leather spine labels. All are small quartos measuring 9 1/4" by 6" with rough cut pages to the text blocks many of which are un-opened. The only condition issue is there has been a reaction that occurred between the glue used to paste the leather labels to the cloth spines causing a narrow, brown stain around each label. Also, the gilt text on the leather label for volume V is partially obscured due to rubbing and abrasion. One of only 530 copies printed by the Shakespeare Head Press of which 500 were for sale. This set carries the number 449 within each volume. Many of the volumes contain a fold-out frontispiece map which relates to the title of each volume. The set includes: Moll Flanders in two volumes; Colonel Jack and John Gow in two volumes; The Life Adventures and Pyracies of the famous Captain Singleton; Memoirs of a Cavalier in one volume; Robinson Crusoe in three volumes; A Journal of the Plague Year in one volume; The Fortunate Mistress in two volumes; and, Shortest Way with the Dissenters and English Commerce each in their own volumes. A very handsome, clean, tight and highly collectible set with no prior owner's markings, notations or book plates. Our code number = TB26346

        Show Girl

      Simon and Schuster New York: Simon and Schuster. (1928). First. First edition. Boards a bit bowed, spine lettering rubbed and faded, a sound, about very good copy lacking the dustwrapper. Inscribed by the author to director and actor Erich von Stroheim with von Stroheim's bookplate: "To my very good friend 'Von'. Piously, J.P. McEvoy. Jan. 29 - '29 [with a sketch of a person]." The first of McEvoy's novels to feature Dixie Dugan, a Brooklyn-born showgirl who conquers Broadway and Hollywood. Dixie Dugan, based on the life and appearance of Louise Brooks, was the central character in several films including the Alfred Santell-directed Show Girl (1928) with Alice White and Donald Reed; Mervyn Leroy's 1930 Show Girl in Hollywood with White and Jack Mulhall; Le Masque d'Hollywood (1931) directed by Clarence Badger and John Daumery; and Dixie Dugan (1943) directed by Otto Brower. McEvoy is also known for his plays and novels which were adapted into films for W.C. Fields including It's the Old Army Game (1926), The Potters (1927), The Old Fashioned Way (1934), You're Telling Me! (1934), and It's a Gift (1934). Von Stroheim began his career as an actor (invariably playing Teutonic terrors and billed as "The Man You Love to Hate"), then directed several key silent films (Greed, Foolish Wives, etc.) before his legendary extravagance forced him to return to acting in the sound era, with notable roles in Grand Illusion, Sunset Boulevard, and several other films. A wonderful association. .

The Complete Series, All Fine, All with Jackets. 203 x 149 mm (8 x 5 7/8"). 18 volumes. EACH VOLUME ONE OF 500 COPIES (of 530 total), EACH SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR.

Dust jacket spines a bit faded, one spine somewhat frayed and chipped, isolated minor spots, smudges, or small tears to jackets, but still AN EXTREMELY DESIRABLE AND ATTRACTIVE SET, PARTICULARLY FINE INTERNALLY, the texts--over a third of them obviously unread (because unopened)--with few signs of use. This is a rare set of the entire series of 18 works making up the "Woburn Books," finely printed pieces on good quality paper written and signed by modern British authors, with all of our volumes in their original dust jackets. The 18-volume set is comprised of: (1)"The Sword of Wood," G. K. Chesterton, 25 pp.; (2)"The Dewpond," T. F. Powys, 29 pp.; (3)"A Wedding Morn," Sheila Kaye-Smith, 50 pp.; (4) "Portrait of the Misses Harlowe," Martin Armstrong, 26 pp.; (5) "The Apple Disdained," R. H.

        [Original Dust Jacket Art]: Spider Boy

      Alfred A. Knopf [New York: Alfred A. Knopf. 1928]. First. Original tempura painted art for the dust jacket of Carl Van Vechten's novel Spider Boy. 6.5" x 7.5". Unsigned (as is the finished dust jacket). Matted and framed. Fine. Hollywood star waves to the adoring multitudes as her entourage looks on, and a flash camera goes off in the left foreground. The painted lettering was changed to an entirely different font for the finished jacket, and the rest of the image shows minor variations, mostly in color. A very nearly final draft, and the only extant painting of the jacket of which we are aware. An iconic and wonderfully evocative image of the Jazz Age. The satiric novel featured a mildly successful playwright, Ambrose Deacon, who is lured to Hollywood where he is pressed into service as a screenwriter for an egotistical superstar. Ambrose has no clue about film but rapidly discovers that no one in Hollywood cares, as long as he lends his modest prestige to the film colony's pretensions. With a second printing of the novel, very good in very good dustwrapper. .

        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.
