Alekhine, Alexander Alexandrovich (1892-1946) , Hans Kmoch, Géza Maróczy and Aron Nimzowitsch
Schachvereines Herausgegeben von L Toth, Kecskemet, 1928. xvi+158 pages with diagrams, tables and 4 plates. Royal octavo (9 1/4" x 6 1/2") bound in 3/4 leather with marbled boards. Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana: 5405) 1st edition. This tournament (June-July 1927) was unique in being the only important post-First World War contest played on the discredited group system. The twenty players were divided into two groups of ten each, the first four in each group qualifying for the A final, the next four for the B final and the last two dropping out. As in St Petersburg 1914 thinks did not work out according to the preconceived notions and two grandmasters, Tartakower and Grunfeld, failed to make the top final. Alekhine dominated group A, conceding draws only to Gilg and Kmoch; in B his feat was duplicated not, as expected, by Nimzowitsch, but by Lajos Steiner, who drew with Ahues and Nimzowitsch and won the rest. The scores from the qualifying groups were carried to the finals. In these finals Alekhine won only one game, drawing six and just scraped home from Nomzowitsch and Steiner, who tied for second. The full results were as follows: Group A: Alexander Alekhine (8); Lajos Asztalos and Hans Kmoch (6); Karl Gilg (5 1/2); Johann Takacs and Savielly Tartakower (4 1/2); Wilhelm Brinkmann (3 1/2); Frederick D Yates (3); Hans Müller (2 1/2); Ladislav Sarkozy(2). Group B: Lajos Steiner (9); Aron Nimzowitsch (6 1/2); Karl Ahues, Arpad Vajda and Edgard Colle (5); Ernst Grünfeld (4 1/2); Vladimir Vukovic' (3 1/2); Karl Berndtsson, Dawid Przepiórka and Jeno Szekely (2 1/2).

Gide, Andre
NRF, Librairie Gallimard, Paris, 1928. First edition, inscribed by Gide on the half-title to fellow author, Julien Green: "a Julien Green en temoignage de tres attentive affection, Andre Gide." This is a splendid association copy. Green, a novelist of American parentage who was born in Paris, was a member of the French Academy -- as was Gide. Green converted to Roman Catholicism in 1916 and was often described as a "Catholic novelist" -- a term he rejected. Still, his novels depict the anguish and despair that result from the conflict between man's spiritual and carnal desires. Gide's novels were banned by the Catholic Church. This title, LE RETOUR DU TCHAD, along with VOYAGE AU CONGO was severely critical of French colonization in Africa. 8vo; hansomely bound by H. Alix in 3/4 crushed chestnut brown morocco and marbled paper boards, spine with gilt lettering, marbled endpapers, t.e.g., original wrappers and backstrip bound in, text browned, else fine.

Few of his works are as richly illustrated as these two. "The works of Tsiolkovskiy that date from the Soviet period repeat the principle assumption of his theory of the metal aerostat, provide counsel on the practical organization of experimental work, survey critically the existing types of dirigibles, and point out the errors in the research into metal-envelope dirigibles in the USSR and abroad." (Collected Works, 1959, III: p. 23).Being the father of the all-metal dirigible aerostat with changeable volume and gas heating, his technical foresight was greatly in advance of the level of industrial development at the time. He came up with a number of entirely new ideas concerning dirigible design. He set out to develop a dirigible that would be safe as well as fast, up until then the dirigibles in use were neither. He wanted to ensure a longer flight-time, and was certain this could not be attained with the fabric envelopes in use at the time, -they leaked gas, lost height and couldn't stay aloft for long at a time.

Callender, Professor Geoffrey (Foreword).
London, Spink & Son, 1928.. Crown quarto. Pp. 47. Printed on fine paper. Bound in the original black wrappers, decorative title label. In about fine condition. ~ The campaign to save the "Victory" was inaugurated in 1921. The need for the campaign was the antiquity of the ship and her inability to remain any longer afloat. In 1927 the accumulated funds amounted to over BP 100,000. The present exhibition was organized in order to raise at least BP 10,000. The catalogue lists 182 items. The items include paintings, engravings, letters, silverware, weapons, cloths, miniatures, etc., as well as a locket of Admiral Viscount Nelson's hair. The items catalogued were the property of the Rev. Hugh Nelson-Ward. Two items, presented in 1881 in memory of Nelson by his daughter, Horatia, were specially lent to the exhibition by the Lord Commissioners of the Admiralty. Sir Geoffrey Arthur Romaine Callender's (1875-1946) preface essay covers 17 pages. ADDED: A folded sheet, titled 'Save the "Victory"' Fund (1928), outlining the Society for Nautical Research's background and future goals. Scarce. OCLC lists just 4 copies worldwide, all in the United Kingdom (two are in the National Art Library Victoria & Albert Museum; one at the Public Record Office; one at University of Oxford). There is no copy in the British Library.

Lawrence D. H
Florence Privately printed 1928. Early printing, a pirated edition. Tall 8vo, original black moire pattered cloth with a paper label on the spine printed in red and black. 365. A pleasing copy, the black cloth a bit mellowed on the spine, a touch of expected shelving. This pirated edition was printed just shortly after the first edition and is nearly identical in format to the true first. These unauthorized pirated editions that followed the printing of the first edition would induce Lawrence in 1929 to write the essay "My Skirmish With Jolly Roger," A tirade against the numerous pirated editions of his book, the bookshops that discretely distributed them and, incidentally, against those who suggested he should issue an expurgated edition. It was not until 1960 that Penguin Books in London took on the risk of publishing an authorized edition in full and they were consequently prosecuted under the Obscene Publications Act 1959. The later acquittal proved a victory for not only the eminent authors who appeared as witnesses at the celebrated trial (including E.M. Forster, R. Hoggart, and H. Gardner) and Penguin Books, but for writing and publishing in general. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
