First edition, first impression. Milne began planning his final Pooh book in 1927. Three years of intense publicity were taking their toll on the family, and Milne longed to return full-time to adult literature, telling his brother that "after one more Pooh book I must think of something else. In fact, it's time I tried a novel" (Thwaite p. 328). Christopher Robin was growing up, soon to leave for boarding school, and The House at Pooh Corner would be a farewell. But first there was an introduction to be made. Milne had bought his son a stuffed tiger, "Tigger", and told Shepard that he was longing to see the illustrations for this new character, who would become one of the author's most popular creations. Published on 11 October 1928 in an edition of 75,000 regular trade copies, The House at Pooh Corner was received by critics with a delight tinged by sadness.

A. A. Milne
Methuen & Co. This is an excellent First Edition copy of one of the most popular children’s books, by A. A. Milne, the final book in the Winnie the Pooh Series. Published by Methuen, London; 1928. This smart first edition copy of the popular final book of the winnie the pooh series is in Near Fine condition. There is some slight bumping to the spine ends and board corneres, a little fading to the salmon pink of the original boards, and a few tiny black marks to the rear board, but apart from this the binding is tight and the boards free from blemishes or damage, with the lovely gold gilt detailing to the front and lettering to the spine. There is a gift inscription to the front free endpaper, and the odd age spot and very slight toning, particularly to the free endpapers, but apart from this the pages are remarkably clean and bright and free from blemishes or wear. The dustjacket is in Near Fine condition. There is some chipping to the spine ends and the edges, and a darkening to the edges and spine, but apart from this the jacket retains it’s lovely salmon pink colour. Apart from some small rubbing marks to the panels, there are no other real issues to speak of and it is a very smart jacket for this lovely book. In all this book is a very rare find in such lovely condition and would be an excellent addition to any collection or an ideal investment for the future!

TURING, Alan.) NEWMAN, Max.
1928–59. Together, 29 items: 3 printed books, one manuscript notebook, one autograph album, and 24 offprints. Very light toning and spotting, extremities slightly bumped and occasionally a little worn, a few light stains, some minor nicks and chips to margins. Minor rust stains to wrappers and gutters of offprints. Generally a good state of preservation. Max Newman (1897–1984) was one of the most significant British mathematicians of his generation and a leading pioneer in modern computer science. After early pioneering work on combinatory (or geometric) topology, logic and Boolean algebras, he was elected FRS in 1939. During the Second World War, in 1942, he joined the government code and cypher school at Bletchley Park. There he realised that some of the methods used by the Bletchley codebreakers would be better done with the help of rapid, special-purpose electronic machinery employing paper tape and photoelectric cells; he and Alan Turing proposed the logical requirements for such machinery. These requirements formed the basis of practical machines, culminating with the Colossus, the world's first large-scale electronic computer. The section at Bletchley that used the machinery was headed by Newman and was called the Newmanry. From 1945 to 1964 Newman was the Fielden professor of mathematics at Manchester University, where he established the Royal Society Computing Machine Laboratory, which produced the first working stored program electronic computer in 1948. This collection of papers from his family includes an autograph album owned by his son William, who evidently t … [Click Below for Full Description]

GOLDEN COCKEREL PRESS.) KEATS, John.
Waltham St. Lawrence: Golden Cockerel Press, 1928. Quarto. Finely bound for the publisher's by Sangorski & Sutcliffe in dark green full sharkskin, title to spine and serpent motif to front cover in gilt, marbled endpapers, original metal clasps to fore edge with raised floral design, edges uncut and gilt. Housed in the original green cloth folding case. Calling card of Frederick Phineas Rose (1923–1999) loosely laid in, with gift inscription to verso. Bookseller's ticket (Philip C. Duschnes of Madison Avenue) to rear free endpaper. Occasional natural discolouration of the vellum; a superb copy of this beautifully produced edition, very handsomely bound indeed. With 15 floriated initials by Eric Gill printed in red and blue, and 17 wood engravings by Robert Gibbings. Limited edition, number 7 of 15 copies on vellum, from a total edition of 500 (the rest of the edition comprised 485 copies on handmade paper). This was the last book published in Keats's lifetime, about which he had "low hopes, though not spirits this shall be my last trial; not succeeding, I shall try what I can do in the apothecary line". Though Keats did not live to see his fame confirmed, this last collection is his greatest single volume, containing the magnificent series of odes on which his reputation now rests, as well as his longer narrative poems – two medieval romances: the chilling "Isabella or the Pot of Basil" and the gothic romance "The Eve of St Agnes"; and two mythological fantasies: the weird "Lamia" and the ambitious, Miltonic fragment "Hyperion". Chanticleer 62; Ransom 60; Gill 334.

This was all the "rage" during the 1920-30 for the wealthy elite of America & Europe, to embark on a 2-3 month leisurely 'shopping' voyage. This came to an abrupt halt in 19376, when Japan was designated an 'aggressor' in China, Korea, Manchuria & S.E. Asia. Shortly thereafter World War II started. This pamphlet, was published for Nippon Yusen Kaisha, a passenger steamship line. This is a guide to the ports of call for passengers.

TULLY, Jim
Alfred A. Knopf, London, 1928. "Despite its cheery-sounding title, Circus Parade is light years away from Toby Tylerland, presenting a dark, violent and thoroughly unromanticized portrait of life on the road with a traveling show -- described by Tully as "generally a canvas nest of petty thieves and criminals among the lower gentry." The book's depictions of casual brutality -- including a shocking account of the troupe's exploitation of a young black girl's sexual favors -- got it banned in Boston and caused an uproar with circus fans (and, unsurprisingly, circus owners), which helped to put the kibosh on a proposed film adaptation by James Cruze" (PROUTY 4). Octavo (19.5cm); purple cloth, with titling and decorative elements stamed in pale metallic green on spine and front cover; 248pp. Inscribed by the author on the front endpaper: "To Helen Rosa Lewis / From an author who is proud to be her guest - Sincerely / Jim Tully / 1929 / London." Spine cloth sunned, with rubbing to gilt on same, and a small rubbed spot along upper front joint; top edge dust-soiled, with pronounced offset to rear pastedown and endpaper from a previously laid-in item; Very Good, sound copy.

An Austrian-born composer, Toch became a naturalized American in 1940. "His experiences in the [First World] war left a mark on him, and his first composition after it, the Ninth String Quartet op.26 (1919), signals a new stylistic direction. Where the prewar works, for all their originality, are audibly indebted to Brahms, the Ninth Quartet is more radical, employing an extended tonality and an uncompromising emphasis on the linear dimension. It and the works that followed earned Toch a prominent place in the musical avant garde... The two short operas Die Prinzessin auf der Erbse op.43 (1927) and Egon und Emilie op.46 (1928) were not only examples of contemporary Zeitoper but also way-stations in the composer's search for a libretto for a full-length opera."

Milne, A.A.
London, Meuthen & Co., Ascherberg, Hopwood & Crew. 1928 - Sprache: English First Edition. 24 cm x 30 cm. 40 pages. With musical notes and illustrations in black and white. Original hardcover in protective covering. Excellent condition first edition with only very minor signs of external wear. Opie collection of children's literature. A.A. Milne grew up in a school - his parents ran Henley House in Kilburn, for young boys - but never intended to be a children's writer. Pooh he saw as a pleasant sideline to his main career as a playwright and regular scribe for the satirical literary magazine, Punch. Writing was very much the dominant feature of A.A. (Alan Alexander)'s life. He joined the staff of Punch in 1906, and became Assistant Editor. In the course of two decades he fought in the First World War, wrote some 18 plays and three novels, and fathered a son, Christopher Robin Milne, in 1920 (although he described the baby as being more his wife's work than his own!). Observations of little Christopher led Milne to produce a book of children's poetry, When We Were Very Young, in 1924, and in 1926 the seminal Winnie-the-Pooh. More poems followed in Now We Are Six (1927) and Pooh returned in The House at Pooh Corner (1928). After that, in spite of enthusiastic demand, Milne declined to write any more children's stories as he felt that, with his son growing up, they would now only be copies based on a memory. (Amazon)
