        The Book of Tokens : A Recovery of Certain Meditations on the Secret Wisdom. Original Pre-Publication Mimeograph Typescript, with "Six Lectures by Paul Case on Tarot" Four-page Announcement.

      N.p.: Privately Printed, 1928. Rare, Pre-publication of "The Bhagavad Gita of the West". A Near Fine copy. Mimeograph Typescript, with Original, four-page announcement: "Six Lectures by Paul Case on Tarot", tipped-in to half-title (b&w picture of Case, dated in pencil "1928", see scan). The Typescript is markedly, substantially different from the published edition, with much extended commentaries, and additional material. Just one example, an Introduction, not found in the published edition as follows: "As its title shows, The Book of Tokens is a recovery, not an original production. An outline of the meditations was first obtained in 1919, through the joint labors of two of the Brothers [Paul Foster Case, Michael James Whitty], but the completion of the work has been de-layed until now by a series of events beginning with the death of the elder of these two [Michael James Whitty]. In accordance with instructions then received, the finished recovery is now of-fered to students of the Qabalah, together with a commen-tary. May it aid in the extension of L. V. X. ". Many Extensive differences follow. [ii]103 leaves recto only, with Tree of Life Plate. Textured paper wraps show a touch of wear. Cord bound binding very tight, with all page punches Fine, without wear or tearing. Internally clean, bright, and unmarked. It is of course unknown how many copies where actually produced, and distributed as thus, but judging by the Rarity of this Pre-pub., it was unquestionably very small, and likely only given to a few in his close circle. A truly RARE, Unique copy, of a Historically Important piece of Modern Tarot, Qabalah.. Pre-Publication Typescript. Soft Cover. Near Fine. Illus. by Tree of Life Plate. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.

      Athol, Mass.:: W. Paul Cook / The Recluse Press,. 1928.. First edition sheets, one of only 100 copies of Lovecraft's first book of fiction bound by Arkam House in 1961. Bibliographer S. T. Joshi calls it Lovecraft's "legendary stillborn first 'book'." W. Paul Cook had wanted to publish "Shunned House" in the first issue of The Recluse but, for reasons unknown, decided instead to print the story as a small book with a preface by Frank Belknap. He printed approximately 300 copies of the sheets in 1928 but neither bound nor published the book at that time. In 1934, Robert Barlow (later to be Lovecraft's literary executor) reportedly received 225 copies of the sheets and distributed around 50, some unbound and some bound in various bindings over the next few years. Arkham House subsequently obtained approximately 150 useable sets of sheets and issued 50 unbound copies circa 1959 and the 100 bound in black cloth boards as seen here. This copy with copyright cancel label in Currey's first state with "100 copies bound by Arkham House, 1961" printed in pencil at bottom of label. Small octavo, black cloth boards lettered in gilt on spine. Tiny scratch to bottom front board, spine lettering rubbed, mostly affecting "Lovecraft" and "Arkham House," otherwise near fine as issued, without dust jacket. Joshi 1-A-5. Currey C(2). .

        Romancero Gitano 1924-1927 (Gyspy Ballads).

      Buenos Aires: Sur, 1928. First edition of Garcia Lorca's classic work. Octavo, bound in three quarters calf over marbled boards. Signed by Federico Garcia Lorca, who has drawn a face next to his signature. Books signed by Garcia Lorca are exceedingly rare, as he was killed in 1936. In very good condition with contemporary bookplate to the pastedown. Romancero Gitano (translated as Gypsy Ballads) is a poetry collection by Spanish writer Federico Garcia Lorca, published in 1928. It is his best known book of poetry. It is composed of eighteen romances with subjects like the night, death, the sky, and the moon. All of the poems deal with the Romani people and their culture. The work reflects the pains of a people who live on the margins of society and who feel persecuted by the representatives of authority and for their struggle against that authority. However, Garcia Lorca himself points out that his interest is focused not on describing a specific situation, but on the clash that occurs again and again between the forces encountered: in a poem that describes the struggle between the Civil Guard and the gypsies, he calls these sides "Roman" and "Carthaginian" to imply the permanence of the conflict. "Their imagery is often vividly synaesthetic, inventive and unexpected . . . the poems celebrate and lament the concrete and the mysterious, in language that manages both to be startlingly fresh and obviously in debt to a rich tradition, that of the traditional Spanish ballad and its offshoots" (Gyln Pursglove).
