Wilder, Thornton
New York: Albert & Charles Boni. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. FIRST AMERICAN EDITION, SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY THORNTON WILDER on front free endpaper: "For Ida Freedman / Thornton Wilder" The Bridge of San Luis Rey "proved to be one of the great surprises in the history of American publishing. Its sponsors recognized its original beauty and the high quality of its style. So it was issued as one of those things 'which add dignity to a publisher's list.' It became the Pulitzer Prize novel for 1928, and was for two or three years a best-seller" (Vernon Loggins, I Hear America). In telling the story of a fatal bridge collapse set in eighteenth-century Peru, Wilder "sets forth themes that recur in [his] fiction: love, brotherhood, tolerance, and faith. Its last statement applies to many of Wilder's works: 'There is a land of the living and a land of the dead and the bridge is love, the only survival, the only meaning.' Wilder was unprepared for the acclaim that followed the publication of The Bridge of San Luis Rey. In the New Republic (28 Dec. 1927), Malcolm Cowley called the book 'perfect in itself. . . . The texture is completely unified; nothing falls short of its mark; nothing exceeds it; and the book as a whole is like some faultless temple erected to a minor deity'" (American National Biography). New York: Albert & Charles Boni, 1927. Octavo, original cloth, original dust jacket. Text block with a few splits (as often) but holding; cloth clean.

According to Riall page 164, there were 2 different leather binding colors issued with the grey being the 1st printing and brown being the September 1928 reprint. Sleepy Hollow is a scarcer Rackham title to find, with the publishers special bindings especially difficult to find. This copy shows a bit of wear at the spine ends with the corners and some of the board edges lightly rubbed in places, but the gilt is bright and clean. Inside the book is quite clean except for a couple of indecipherable words the front paste down (like it is the reverse inkblot of a name), an occasionally start of foxing at the page edges, but still a quite nice copy of a scarcer Rackham item.

Jacket shows two faint scratches to spine panel, several short tears, light edge-wear, a few thin marks to spine and front panels, and light soiling to rear panel. Still a bright and fairly attractive copy overall. FIRST TRADE EDITION, preceded by a limited, signed edition of the same year. Captain Hermann Köhl (1888-1938), Major James C. Fitzmaurice (1898-1965), and Baron Günther von Hünefeld (1892-1929) made the first westward crossing of the Atlantic by air, from Ireland to Greenly Island, Canada, in April, 1928. They flew in the "Bremen," a Junkers W33 monoplane. Köhl, the pilot, was a native of Bavaria and a professional pilot, who had flown with the German air force in World War I. Fitzmaurice, the navigator, was a former R.A.F. pilot (1919-1922) and commandant of the Irish Air Corps. Hünefeld, of East Prussia, was the owner of the aircraft and the financier of the expedition. The book is divided into three parts, with each man contributing a separate account of his experiences. Scarce in the dust jacket. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]

(Hook & Norman, p. 205).<br><br>The most important year for television as we know it today must be said to be 1928, the year in which it became certain that television could be more than a scientific curiosity, the same year that the "Television" journal, aimed at both amateurs and professionals and filled with commercials connected to television, appeared.

Hemingway Ernest
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1928. First Edition, eighth printing, February 1928, with the same dustjacket artwork and design originally issued for the first printing. A photograph of Hemingway has been added to the rear panel in place of a drawing of the author. 8vo, publisher’s original black cloth, with the gold paper labels on the spine and upper cover printed in black, in the scarce original dustjacket decorated and designed just as in the first printing. (6), 259 pp. A very pleasing copy, surprising in its state of preservation, the black cloth still quite fresh and bright, the gold labels whole and bright, a bit of minor mellowing only to the tips or edges, internally clean, solid and sturdy and with just a bit of the aging to which the paper is prone. The rare iconic dustjacket still very handsome, toned just a bit as would be expected, and with some light evidence of shelving or use at the edges or tips. FIRST EDITION, EARLY PRINTING, OF ONE OF THE AUTHOR’S MOST IMPORTANT BOOKS AND AN ICON IN THE WORLD OF MODERN LITERATURE. PERHAPS THE GREATEST OF THE 20TH CENTURY EXPATRIATE NOVELS . Hemingway's fourth (and third generally published) book, and his first "bestseller." Hemingway was the leading spokesperson for the “lost generation”; he reflected the sentiments of those affected by the world wars and their disillusionment. His characters are often stoic and tough, very often intelligent and juxtaposed to a corrupt and brutal society. He is famous for his spare and understated writing style. <br> “The title is derived from a pess … [Click Below for Full Description]
