        Decline and Fall.

      London: Chapman & Hall Ltd,, 1928. An Illustrated Novelette. Octavo. Original red and black marbled cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. Frontispiece and 4 illustrations in the text, all by Evelyn Waugh. Ownership inscription to front free endpaper. Spine gently rolled, slight rubbing to extremities, top edge dust toned, small mark to foot of spine; a very good copy in the jacket with browned spine and panel edges, minor loss to head of spine, chips to extremities, a little cracking to creases. First edition, first impression. The author's remarkable first novel, with his own illustrations, in the dust jacket also designed by him. After the book was rejected for indecency by Duckworth's, the publisher of his earlier biography of Rossetti, Waugh offered the manuscript to Chapman & Hall, but he did so while his father, who was the managing director of the firm, was away on holiday. The acting-director agreed to publish the novel and Arthur Waugh returned to London to discover that his son was his firm's newest author. When Arthur Waugh's biography was published three years later, however, Decline and Fall and Vile Bodies, the two novels published under his directorship of Chapman & Hall, were not mentioned. The indelicate material, which Martin Stannard has since revealed in fact did go through some "taming" revisions, was perhaps too much for the elder Waugh.

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1928.. Octavo, pp. [i-vi] vii-xi [xii-xiv] 1-281 [282: blank], original green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in brown, fore-edge untrimmed. First U.S. edition. One of the more important scientific romances of the 1920s, being a rewritten and retitled version of THEODORE SAVAGE: A STORY OF THE PAST OR THE FUTURE (1922). This catastrophe novel "... bitterly depicts a future war in whose aftermath the people of the UK, driven out of the cities, revert to superstitious barbarism. The ironically named protagonist lives to a great age in a small village full of savages who think of pre-collapse artifacts as obscene. Hamilton is one of the first -- and among the darkest -- of those UK novelists whose vision of things was shaped by WWI, which they saw as foretelling the end of civilization." - Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), pp. 537-38. "A particularly effective and chilling version of the theme that dominates British speculative fiction between the wars." - Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 2-48. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-484.

        The Station. Athos: Treasures and Men.

      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.

        Der Gaulschreck im Rosennetz. Eine skurrile Erzählung. Mit einem Vorwort von O. A. H. Schmitz, einer Titelvignette und 23 (davon 11 ganzseitigen) Illustrationen des Autors

      Artur Wolf, Wien 1928 - 115 S. Etwas größerer Orig.-Leinenband. Mit eigenhändiger Widmung des Autors in Bleistift: "Vom Verfasser überreicht. Wien 16. Mai 36 F. v. Herzmanovsky-Orlando I. Opering [sic!] 5." "Herzmanovsky erzählt diese grotesk abwegige Geschichte in einer barock verschnörkelten poetischen Sprache, die die vergangenen Welt Alt-Österreichs lebendig werden läßt" (Kindlers Neues Literaturlexikon). Es handelt sich um die - neben einem Privatdruck in 100 Exemplaren - einzige Buchveröffentlichung des Autors zu Lebzeiten; bekannt wurde er erst durch die von Friedrich Torberg stark bearbeitete vierbändige Werkausgabe nach seinem Tode. 1934 schrieb der Verleger an den Autor, er habe in den sechs Jahren nur 235 Exemplare verkauft, sieben wurden zurückgesandt, 90 Besprechungsexemplare wurden versandt sowie sechs Pflicht- und vier Autorenexemplare verteilt! Auch eine Titelauflage als "Der letzte Hofzwerg" blieb erfolglos, so daß das Buch schließlich verramscht wurde. Beiliegend eine farbige Originalfotogafie Herzmanovsky-Orlandos auf Agfa-Fotopapier (ca. 17,5 x 13 cm), rückseitig mit Bleistift bezeichnet: "phot. Prof. Kosmas Peter Ziegler, Meran", dem Freund und Nachlaßverwalter des Autors. Der Vorderdeckel ist gering fleckig und die Goldprägung - wie meist - am Rücken und auf dem Vorderdeckel teilweise etwas abgeblättert, insgesamt handelt es sich jedoch um ein gut erhaltenes Exemplar mit nur leichten Gebrauchsspuren.

        Sie kommt - kommt sie? Roman. Einzig berechtigte Übersetzung aus dem Russischen von Jakob Margot Schubert und Gregor Jarcho.

      Ullstein, Berlin 1928 - 253 S. Hervorragend restaurierter keinformatiger Orig.-Leinenband. Nabokovs erster Roman "Maschenka" (russisch 1926), der bereits zahlreiche Motive des Spätwerks aufweist, spielt wie die meisten Romane der frühen Schaffensperiode des Autors in der russischen Emigrantenszene im Berlin der 1920er Jahre. Am 21.3.1928 unterzeichnete Nabokov den Verlagsvertrag, der neben der Buchausgabe auch einen Vorabdruck in der "Vossischen Zeitung" vorsah. Gerade die populäre und preiswerte Erscheinungsweise im Ullsteinverlag macht diese deutsche Erstausgabe mit dem Copyrightvermerk von 1928 heute fast unauffindbar. Die vier bislang im Handel nachweisbaren Exemplare waren zudem sämtlich Orig.-Broschuren in der Reihe der "Gelben Ullstein Bücher", meines Wissens ist dies der erste Nachweis für ein gebundenes Exemplar. Auch das "Deutsche Bücherverzeichnis" von 1932, das als Erscheinungsjahr übrigens - ebenso wie die Deutsche Nationalbibliothek in Leipzig - 1929 angibt, kennt nur die broschierte Ausgabe. Die Restauratorin hat sich bei der Reparatur selbst übertroffen: Der abgeplatzte Rücken des Originals wurde durch farblich passendes Leinen unterfüttert und wieder aufgezogen, so daß der Band dabei unbeschädigt seine originalen weißen Vorsatzpapiere behalten konnte. Insgesamt handelt es sich um ein gut erhaltenes, fleckenfreies Exemplar ohne Einträge und mit nur leichten Gebrauchsspuren. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Sump'n Like Wings and A Lantern to See By; Two Oklahoma Plays

      New York: Samuel French, 1928. 1st Edition . Hardcover. Very Good/Good. 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall. A nice copy with a dust jacket that has done its job in protecting the book. The book itself is very nice and the gilt on the spine is as bright as the day it was published. Front cover is very clean except for the lightest of soiling around the edges. The rear cover has some spotting of a white material that does not clean. The dust jacket is 95% complete and hangs together but is missing several chips, none larger than a quarter. Inscribed by the author on the FFEP: 'For Anatol - "We [unintelligible] to hang together." -Lynn New York Feb. 22, 1931.' Anatol Bendukov was one of the principal managers of the original company of "Green Grows the Lilacs", the basis of the Rogers and Hammerstein musical "Oklahoma". Additional photos available on request.
