Woolf, Virginia
The Modern Library, New York, 1928. The first Modern Library edition (stated), printing Woolf's introduction for the first time. Flexible boards slightly splayed as is common, and a couple of wrinkles and cracks to the spine--but an unmarked and almost unworn, near fine copy. In the original first-issue dustjacket (150 titles listed on reverse)--a good example, split and chipped at the folds and reinforced in places on the verso with archival-grade tape--but respectable and rare.

BORGES, Jorge Luis.
Buenos Aires: Colleccion Indice, M. Gleizer, Editor, 1928. Octavo. Original printed wrappers. Spine tanned, slight splitting to joints but holding firm with discreet amateur repair to front joint, minor marks and toning to the rest of wrappers, minor foxing within, a very good copy. First edition, first printing, signed by Borges on the title page, of this scarce and very early collection of philosophical and literary essays. This copy derives from the estate of Borges's friend and translator Donald A. Yates - though without ownership mark it has a laid-in slip with some manuscript notes in Yates's hand, as well as the the torn paper bookmark laid in on the page of Borges's signature as is typical of the books from his library. Yates was a prime mover in bringing Borges to the English speaking world through his translation (joint with James Irby) of the hugely influential short story collection Labyrinths (1962), which he worked on while living in Buenos Aires. He was also responsible for getting Borges his very first published appearance in English, when he brought the the story "The Garden of Forking Paths" to the attention of Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine (published August 1948, trans. Anthony Boucher). Clearly signed for Yates in the 1960s, 1970s, or 1980s, in Borges's blind hand, this is a great association copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

Publisher's dark blue linen-grain cloth, spine and front cover lettered in gilt. Without the scarce just jacket. Inscribed twice by Maughan: upside down on the rear end paper (presumably, his first attempt) and on the front end paper, "For Jack From WM." Very slight bubbling of cloth (as often), pages lightly toned, else about Fine. Haycraft-Queen Cornerstone. Stott A37a. Hubin (IV), p.198. Barzun & Taylor 2461. Collection of loosely linked short stories, based on Maugham's espionage experiences in the Great War. Alfred Hitchcock adapted two of the stories for his film The Secret Agent.

MAUGHAM, W. Somerset.
London William Heinemann Ltd, 1928. First edition, 8vo., publisher's slate blue cloth, lettered in gilt with author's & publisher's device in black, minor rubbing to extreme corner-tips and spine ends, otherwise a fine, sharp example, dust-jacket benefiting from some skilful conservational paper restoration, some toning to edges of inside flaps, slight dulling to spine, blues slightly desaturated but overall a fine, clean example. An attractive example of Somerset Maugham's famous collection of short stories set in Europe and Russia during the First World War, in large part based on the author's own undercover experiences. It is believed that initially there were 31 stories but 14 had to be destroyed on Churchill's orders as they were in breach of the Official Secrets Act. Many authors of spy fiction have acknowledged the importance and merit of this work over the years, including John Le Carré, Graham Greene, Eric Ambler, Julian Symons and Raymond Chandler. The book was included in Queen's Quorum (#78) and qualified as a Haycraft-Queen Cornerstone; it was also the basis for the Hitchcock film The Secret Agent, starring John Gielgud, Madeleine Carroll and Peter Lorre.

(SHAKESPEARE HEAD PRESS). PINDAR
Stratford-on-Avon: Shakespeare Head Press, 1928, 1930. ONE OF 250 COPIES for Great Britain (along with seven on vellum and 100 paper copies for America). 368 x 248 mm. (14 1/2 x 9 3/4"). Two volumes. Introduction and translation into English verse by C. J. Billson. ONE OF 250 COPIES for Great Britain (along with seven on vellum and 100 paper copies for America).

With 88 woodcut headpieces by John Farleigh. Printed in Victor Scholderer's Hellenic Greek type and with English text in Poliphilus type on facing pages. Prospectus for the Nemean and Isthmian Odes laid in at front. Ransom, p. 16. Boards slightly soiled, two corners a bit bumped, paper labels slightly faded, other trivial imperfections, but the insubstantially made bindings solid and without any significant condition issues, and an immaculate set internally. This is an excellent copy of an unusual bilingual edition of Pindar's heroic odes, printed here in a clean, legible Greek type and illustrated with woodcuts resembling the stylized figures from Etruscan art. The greatest of all Greek lyric poets, Pindar (522-443 B.C.) composed in the grand late archaic manner of Aeschylus, using bold metaphors and probing the meaning of aristocratic life. Featuring complicated rhythms, his odes celebrate the victors of the athletic games of ancient Greece, incorporating a wealth of mythological lore and flashes of philosophical insight. They have always been highly valued … [Click Below for Full Description]

Norris, Frank; Carter Burden
New York: Doubleday, Doran & Co. 1928. Limited Edition. Octavo. In ten volumes limited to 245 sets. The present set is number 205 with an original manuscript page within publisher's envelope laid in which has 36 lines plus the forty lines he added which are central to what made the McTeague a classic (see image) cf. P. 342-343. One of the greatest novels on the lust for gold. Its richness which begins in San Francisco and leads to Death Valley has led scholars to place his ideas in the tradition beginning with Dante and continuing to Flaubert and Tolstoy. (Erich Von Stroheim made it into the classic film Greed). While he was in the middle of his studies at Harvard in 1895, he began the composition of the novel. Records there showed he checked out Fillebrown's work on Operative Dentistry as well as the Inferno. The Death Valley section which comes from the manuscript page where he made significant changes in the wide margins of the folio manuscript. As Charles S.

Black cloth backstrip pasted on to spine, otherwise a fine copy (without institutional stamps). [Dirac's paper:]Pp 610-624. [Entire issue:] Pp. 541-730, (2), XXXVI, X + 6 plates. ¶ First printing of Dirac's landmark paper in which he unified quantum mechanics and relativity and implied the existence of antimatter now known as the Dirac Equation; one of the great triumphs of theoretical physics which brought him on a par with the works of Newton, Maxwell, and Einstein before him. In 1933 he was awarded the Nobel Price in Physics "for the discovery of new productive forms of atomic theory", a direct consequence of the present paper. "[The Dirac Equations] ranks among the highest achievements of twentieth-century science" (Pais, Inward Bound, p. 290)."In the Dirac equation not only quantum mechanics and the special theory of relativity were married, but also the spin of the electron is contained in it without any ad hoc assumption. But the equation not just beautifully described known phenomena, it did more. It predicted the existence of electrons with negative energy. This was at first held to be a severe problem of the theory but was finally understood as great progress, because negative-energy electrons could be interpreted as hitherto unknown particles. Thus, the existence of new particles was predicted which had all properties of the electron except for the electric charge. These particles were indeed found four years a … [Click Below for Full Description]

The Olympian Odes, introduction, v. In these complex poems, Pindar commemorates the achievement of athletes and powerful rulers against the backdrop of divine favor, human failure, heroic legend, and the moral ideals of aristocratic Greek society.
