        20 hrs. 40 min.: Our Flight in the Friendship

      G. P. Putnam's Sons, New York 1928 - An about Fine copy of the book, sharp, square and unread and with the gilt bright. In a Very Good dust jacket that has several small chips and tears. Rare in the dust jacket. Amelia Earhart crafted a thrilling narrative for her first published work in 1928, detailing her first flight across the Atlantic with William Stultz. Combining actual log entries made during the voyage with childhood memories and her early interest in flight, Earhart's tale ends with a broader discussion of women and aviation, breaking ground for the women's rights movement in the mid 30's. She would later make the first female solo flight across the Atlantic and then disappear in the Pacific during her attempted first female circumnavigation of the globe. Named one of National Geographic's "100 greatest adventure books of all time." "Isolation breeds distrust and differences of outlook. Anything which tends to annihilate distance destroys isolation, and brings the world and its' peoples closer together." (Earhart). about Fine in Very Good dust jacket. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Tower

      London: Macmillan, 1928. First Edition. Decorative Cloth. Fine/Fine. Superb First Impression (one of only 2000 copies) of this cornerstone of the Modern Movement, "a peak in English poetry" (Connolly), "the summit of Yeats's creative achievement. He thought it the best book he had written, and he was right." (ODNB) Small 8vo: vi,110,[2, ads]pp. Publisher's olive-green cloth, spine and upper cover lettered and elaborately decorated in gilt with one of Thomas Sturge Moore's most beautiful cover engravings, depicting Ballylee and its reflection; all edges untrimmed; sea-green pictorial dust jacket printed in black, repeating Moore's cover design and priced 6/-. A very Fine, bright copy, apparently unread, in a virtually flawless jacket marred only by several faint tape ghosts unseen on the verso. Connolly 56a. Wade 158. The Tower opens with a meditation on aging or, more specifically, on how to escape it. In "Sailing to Byzantium," the poet dreams of leaving Ireland, "no country for old men," to be reincarnated as a singing mechanical bird in a Byzantine court. In "The Tower," Yeats laments his lost love for Maude Gonne, "a strikingly beautiful former débutante, with the height and presence of a Valkyrie" (ONDB), and ruminates on reconciling his youthful spirit with his aging body. The collection also contains his two great sequences on history and violence, ‘Nineteen Hundred and Nineteen,' inspired by the Bolshevik Revolution, and ‘Meditations in Time of Civil War,' an account of the chaos that gripped Ireland from 1922 to 1923. The tower of the title was Thoor Ballylee, in County Galway, near Coole, in which Yeats and his family lived during the 1920s, when they weren't in their Dublin townhouse. This sixteenth-century Norman castle consisted of four floors with just one room on each, connected by a spiral stone stairway built into the seven-foot thickness of the massive outer wall. Each floor had a window overlooking the river which flowed alongside. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        Henry Ford signs first edition copy of "The Story of Mary and Her Little Lamb" , book published by him and wife Clara Jane Bryant in 1928

      Michigan, Circa 1928. 5" x 7.875". "Hardcover first edition copy of "The Story of Mary and Her Little Lamb" published in Dearborn, Michigan in 1928 by "Mr. and Mrs. Henry Ford", with half-title page signed "Henry Ford" in black fountain pen near center right. Book has faux leather brown covers gilt-embossed with book title, and marbleized endpapers. Signature is clear and strong. Book in overall very fine condition. Missing front end paper, loosened binding at front hinge, and former Pontiac, MI book owner address label affixed to front end paper. Expected wear includes some light cover scuffs and paperclip ghost impressions. Book measures 5"" x 7.875""."This is the story of Mary and her lamb, the school, and all the other persons and incidents noted in the famous verses. There was a Mary, and there was a lamb", begins this delightful account of the real Mary of Sarah Josepha Hale's verses. This children's book includes facsimiles of historical documents, drawings, photographs, and stills from the 1912 silent film of the same name to recount the personal history of Mary Sawyer (1806-1889), a Massachusetts farm girl who famously befriended an abandoned lamb.The name of Henry Ford (1863-1947) is synonymous with cars. Ford was one of the founders of the Ford Motor Company established in 1903. Ford perfected mass production techniques, which enabled the manufacture of cheaper cars. Automobiles would revolutionize transportation throughout the world, and millions of Americans with disposable income discovered the delight and danger of driving.Ford's personal fortune thus guaranteed, he pursued numerous extracurricular interests. In addition to running his corporation, Ford became involved with publishing. He subsidized a weekly journal called the Dearborn Independent in the 1920s. "The Story of Mary's Little Lamb" was not Ford's first foray into children's book publishing; he published "The Case Against the Little White Slaver", an anti-smoking book, in 1914.Ford was an extremely polarizing figure. He championed a living wage, a 40-hour work week, and the hiring of women, blacks, and the handicapped, yet he also publically espoused anti-Semitic views. Ford's publishing of children's and public service books only further complicates this image."

        The Station. Athos: Treasures and Men.

      Duckworth 1928 - The First UK Printing published by Duckworth in 1928. The BOOK is in Very Good++ or better condition. Original Blue cloth has a little rubbing at the corners. Gilt titling remains very bright. Light toning to the text block with a little spotting to the prelims. Pages remain clean. Free from erasures and inscriptions. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good++ or better condition. A little toned to the spine with mild edge wear with a little loss to the lower front edge and spine ends. A few professional Japanese tissue paper repairs to the verso. The coloured designs to the covers remain very bright. Mild vertical crease to the spine. The wrapper looks very striking in the removable Brodart archival cover. One of Byron's earliest titles with a frontispiece of Simopetra and 32 further B/W photographic illustrations, mainly by the author. In a 1984 reprint of The Station, John Julius Norwich, himself a life-long traveller, writes in a very erudite Introduction : 'No better portrait of the Holy Mountain exists than this, written as it was nearly sixty years ago; nor is it likely to be surpassed in the future. Here, in short, is a classic. And a classic it will remain. What higher praise than this can be gained by someone who was only twenty-two when he wrote the book. Robert Byron changed the English-speaking world's view of Byzantine art and culture through 'The Station' and 'The Byzantine Achievement', published the year after. This book is therefore more than a travel book and more than a study of the monastic society of Mount Athos. It is also a historical enquiry into the civilization of Byzantium seen in its only surviving manifestation. With typical Byzantine complexity the obscure title of the book is only explained in the last sentence : 'This is the Holy Mountain Athos, station of a faith where all the years have stopped'.' Byron was to go on to write his classic title 'The Road To Oxiana' in 1937 before being tragically killed aged 35 in 1941 after his ship, the 'SS Jonathan Holt', was torpedoed by U-97 a submarine in the North Atlantic. His body was never found. A very sharp title and scarce title to find with such attributes. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        La Bíblia : versió dels textos originals i comentaris / Montserrat (Monestir), Abadia de Montserrat, Bonaventura Ubach (dir)

      Monestir de Montserrat - La Bíblia : versió dels textos originals i comentaris pels monjos de Montserrat Bonaventura Ubach; Salvador Obiols; Jordi Ma Riera; Ramiro Augé y Montanyà; y otros Montserrat: Monestir de Montserrat, 1928-1982 (nuestro primer volumen es una reimpresión de 1928 de la primera edición de 1926) Texto en catalán y en latín. Título en la portadilla de los vol. 23-25: La Biblia ilustrada. 28 volúmenes. Encuadernación en tela con sobrecubiertas de papel, se conservan todas menos una. Lomo liso y redondeado, con cajos. Papel verjurado con filigrana "Montserrat". Obra impresa "a favor de fibra": las hojas y la cubierta se abren fácilmente y permanecen abiertas sin esfuerzo. Texto en catalán, con ladillos a ambos lados del cuerpo del texto (el texto de la vulgata, en latín y referencias) y pies de página (comentarios). Cuatro cuerpos de letra diferentes, uno para cada tipo de texto. Tipografía humanista. Libro sin foxing, manchas de humedad, ni de oxidación. Obra robusta y muy bien conservada. El proyecto de una nueva traducción de la Biblia en catalán, tras las medievales que sólo se conservaban fragmentariamente y la Biblia valenciana de 1478 contra la que la inquisición abrió proceso (y de la que no se conservan prácticamente ejemplares), se emprendió en 1926 y quedó inacabado. Quedaron sin publicar los evangelios de Marcos y Lucas. En principio tenía que nacer bajo el patrocinio de Francesc Cambó y la Fundación Bíblica catalana, pero divergencias irreconciliables entre éste y el gran artífice de la obra, Bonaventura Ubach, hicieron imposible perpetuar la colaboración. Que Ubach es el gran artífice, debe afirmarse descontando el hecho, conocido, de que la obra que presentamos es considerada una obra colectiva, la de la abadía, y de que en conjunto es tenida, y así lo debe ser, un gran monumento benedictino. El proyecto con Cambó se truncó, como decíamos y acabó siendo obra de Bonaventura, probablemente el monje más insigne que ha tenido la abadía. En su primera estancia en Palestina (1906-1910) concibió varios proyectos: el de dos biblias en catalán: una manual, y la otra comentada, el museo bíblico (1927) y el de un libro del su viaje al Sinaí. Ubach llegó como profesor del monasterio benedictino de Jerusalén. Rápidamente estableció contactos con la comunidad árabe para aprender la lengua, y a tales contactos debemos sumar, evidentemente, los que estableció con la comunidad judía. Gracias a estas relaciones pudo hacer sus primeras exploraciones de los lugares bíblicos, pero los viajes más importantes los quiso emprender solo, como el viaje al Sinaí. En este, emulando, hasta donde le permitía su erudición bíblica (que ya era famosa en Roma), el mismo trayecto que los antiguos judíos, además de hacerla con el mismo medio de transporte: la caravana. Todo esto, no lo olvidemos, no por capricho, sino por afán escrupuloso a la fidelidad. Un afán que se transmitió a la obra y que consta como su principal ganancia respecto de las traducciones anteriores. Y un afán que le llevó, por ejemplo, a estudiar las costumbres de la población autóctona para hacer comparaciones antropológicas con las de las poblaciones descritas en el texto sagrado, o cosechar exhaustivamente la flora de donde pasaba, piezas arqueológicas, y acumular documentación gráfica (que se recoge en la obra, en volúmenes independientes: 1929, 1934, 1954). Hay que tener en cuenta que todo este trabajo de campo era una innovación notable en la época, y que por él fue nombrado 1934 «patrón de los excursionistas», y Medalla de oro del excursionismo por el Centro Excursionista de Cataluña. Se ganó en la época, a pulso, su apodo: «el geógrafo de la Biblia». No era para menos: al final de sus tres viajes y estancias había visitado los países del Éxodo, de Josué y de los jueces; los Reyes, los profetas, los Macabeos; las tierras de Jesús y de San Pablo.

        BRISBANE TEST MATCH OF 1928

      1928 - 395x290mm. An original sequence of six cartoons, in ink on paper, depicting the scenes from the final day of the first test at Brisbane in 1928: the England team cheerful at the overnight rain, the Australians glum, the final scene being a procession of Australian batsmen as they were dismissed in quick succession. Signed by Mailey in the lower right hand corner. Mounted, framed and glazed. The Brisbane Test of 1928 saw England utilise the best of the conditions to build a large first innings lead only for the heavy overnight rain to produce an unplayable sticky wicket, which saw Australia quickly bowled out for a paltry 66 to loose by 675 runs. Don Bradman, pictured here amongst the procession of dismissed batsmen, playing in his first test, made 18 and 1 and was dropped for the next test. Arthur Mailey (1886-1967) was a successful leg break bowler, taking 99 wickets from Australia in 21 tests between 1921 and 1929, however his lasting talent was as a cartoonist and he had a particular knack of caricaturing his team mates and opponents, his ready wit creating a humorous narrative with a sequence of cartoons. He drew for the Sydney Arrow and Bulletin and the London Bystander as well as writing and illustrating a number of books, most notably his account of the Bodyline series, And Then Came Larwood and his autobiography, 10 for 66 And All That. Although individual sketches appear occasionally complete cartoon sequences are rarely seen in commerce. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

The work contains a preface by Gotthilf August Francke, the son of the August Hermann Francke, who was one of the driving forces in the creation of the mission.The turn-ins caused some offsetting through the endpapers to the margins of the first and last few leaves, otherwise a very good copy, with only some occasional spots.

        Memoirs of a Fox-Hunting Man

      London: Faber & Gwyer Limited,, 1928. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine gilt, top edge pale yellow. With the dust jacket. Ownership inscription to front flap of jacket. Spine gently rolled and lightly faded, light foxing to prelims and endmatter; an excellent copy in the jacket with nicks to extremities, minor loss at head of spine. First edition, first impression, in Keynes's state "IIb", with all edges trimmed. Keynes's notes that "it seems to be entirely artificial to give priority of issue to either of the classes, since they were both printed and published at the same time". The first impression was issued in a run of 1,500 copies, and printed without the author's name anywhere in the book; the dust jacket stating that the author wished to remain anonymous. This anonymity, however, was not long preserved due to the immediate popularity of the book, and the text was changed to include Sassoon's name on the title page during the printing run of the second edition; 500 of which appear without it. It was included in all subsequent impressions, which totalled ten impressions within two years.

        LES DOUZE CÉSARS

      Paris: F.-L. Schmied, 1928. No. 165 OF 175 COPIES, SIGNED BY SCHMIED. 292 x 200 mm. (11 1/2 x 7 7/8"). 4 p.l., 326 pp., [4] leaves. No. 165 OF 175 COPIES, SIGNED BY SCHMIED. Dark blue crushed morocco by Gonin (stamp-signed on upper pastedown), spine lettered in gilt, turn-ins with silver fillet border, royal blue leather doublures and matching moiré silk endleaves, original wrappers preserved. Housed in a later suede-backed slipcase. With decorative title and section titles printed in gold, and 23 COLOR ILLUSTRATIONS BY SCHMIED, comprised of nine vignette tailpieces, and 14 full-page plates, including 12 portraits. Ritchie 26. Cracks, with some looseness, along the joints (no doubt because of the heavy boards), covers with light polish residue, original wrappers heavily foxed, but the plates and text clean and fresh. This is the very appealing Schmied livre d'artiste version of Suetonius' classic biographies of the first 12 Roman emperors, originally written in 121 A.D. Immensely talented in all areas of book production, François-Louis Schmied (1873-1941) was one of the most important, original, and active figures in the world of artists' books. He was born and studied in Geneva, moved to Paris at 22 to make a living as a wood engraver, and joined the French Foreign Legion in his mid-40s, losing an eye in the Great War. It was after 1919 that Schmied began to focus primarily on the production of "éditions de luxe," and in the mid-1920s, he and his eldest son Théo managed an atelier that issued a distinguished series of sumptuous works in very small editions, largely for members of elite French bibliophile societies. The Roman biographer Suetonius (69-140?) served for some years as a secretary to Hadrian, but he was dismissed for an indiscretion involving the emperor's wife, after which he retired from public life in order to devote himself to literature. He wrote a considerable number of biographies as well as works on antiquities, natural science, and even linguistics, but all that have survived are his "Lives of Famous Men" (in part) and the present "Lives of the 12 Caesars." Our work contains biographies of the Roman rulers from Julius Caesar through Domitian, with formulaic descriptions of family history, public career, physical appearance, private life, and vices and virtues. The work is of great interest to us mainly because of its material relating to the emperors' often scandalous private lives, material to which Suetonius had access in the imperial archives, and material that would otherwise have been lost.

        IL ETAIT UNE PETITE PIE (There was a Little Magpie)

      Paris, Edition Jeanne Bucher., 1928. MIRO, JOAN (1893-1983). HIRTZ, LISE. IL ETAIT UNE PETITE PIE (THERE WAS ONCE A SMALL MAGPIE) Drawings in color by Joan Miro. A folio of 8pp. of pochoir prints. Enclosed in the ORIGINAL LINEN FOLIO in pearl grey background, with black and green letters and lined with black paper. 11 5/8 x 10 5/8 x 5/8. RARE. Enclosed in a black linen contemporary clam shell box. Her first publication was as Lisa Hirtz: Il était une petite pie [There was a little magpie] (with 8 pochoirs by Joan Miró) in 1928. She was the editor of Le Phare de Neuilly, which frequently published articles relating to surrealism. Miro created one of the most imaginative books for children and far beyond its time. Joan Miro was studying art in Barcelona.He moved to Paris in 1919, he was introduced to a surrealists group in 1924 by his neighbor Andre Masson, who shared his studio. He found among these artists the inspiration necessary for his work. But it was his humor that dominated his creations, especially the black humor of the surrealists. In August 1927 Paul Eluard sent Miro the poems of Lisa Hirtz (born Ann - Marie Meyer), a friend of Breton. She was married to Paul Deharme (1898-1934), one of the pioneers of Radio France. Her first publication was as Lisa Hirtz: Il était une petite pie [There was a little magpie] (with 8 pochoirs by Joan Miró) in 1928. She was the editor of Le Phare de Neuilly, which frequently published articles relating to surrealism. In October 1927 Miro completed the gouaches, a part of which would be executed for the 8 plates of this book. Jeanne Bucher (1872-1946) completed the book in 1928. The artistic involvement of the editor was an integral part of the work of preserving the creation of the avant-garde. Lisa Hirtz published Une Petite Pie in Pierre Chareau's gallery, where she had opened her bookstore in 1925. Her interest in children's books was inspired by her grandson, Pierre. Eight gouaches were executed for the colored in plates which were created by Saudet. Edition is limited to 300 copies. Printed on Arches. Signed and dedicated by Lise Hirtz to Jane de Margerie.
