KRISHNAMURTI, J[iddu].
New York: Boni & Liveright, 1928 - Octavo. Original boards, black cloth spine with title label, gilt-patterned cloth sides. With the dust jacket, supplied. Spine label tanned, corners a little rubbed, small damp stain to fore-edge of front board, a very good copy, with the supplied jacket only very slightly chipped at the extremities, slightly sunned around spine and edges, with a few minor marks, but very nice. First edition, first printing, rare signed copy of this early collection of mystical poems, signed "J. Krishnamurti" on the front free endpaper. Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895-1986), a Brahmin who as a child had been selected and groomed by Theosophists and as the long-expected "World Teacher", but soon rejected the mantle and spent his life travelling the world, teaching, and writing. Not unlike Rabindranath Tagore, Krishnamurti became popular in the Western world as a conduit for ancient Eastern wisdom. He gained international fame with The First and Last Freedom, published in 1954 with a Foreword by Aldous Huxley, whom he had befriended in 1938 while living in California. Krishnamurti's earlier books are scarce, and signed copies are remarkably rare. This copy has the ticket of a Hollywood bookshop apparently dedicated to the guru, "Krishnamurti's Works: 1705 N. Vine St. Hollywood, California". [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

DUNALLEY, Lord (Henry Cornelius O'Callaghan Pritie)
Jarrolds Publishers London [1928]. First Edition. Youngman Carter dustjacket art. Hubin listed collection of short stories with some crime elements, and a man committed to becoming a sporting gentleman. Very scarce. The front flap reads: "This is a surprisingly good collection of stories by Lord Dunalley a new writer in the field of fiction and it may safely be said that Lord Dunalley will quickly establish himself as a popular novelist. In A Sporting Education, which is the main story in Saddle and Steel, Mr. Keldon, an American who has " made his bit," thinks it time to give up commerce and learn how to become a sportsman and a gentleman. He places himself under the able tuition of Captain Hugh Darley. Though Keldon finds his newly proposed vocation rather more difficult than " hot air merchandising," he tries to learn with an earnest zest, supported by a disarming urbanity, which makes him as lovable a character as Hugh Darley is. This is a sporting novel without a villain. A kindly good humour pervades it from the first to the last chapter and the whole book will appeal to all readers who like a good, clean sporting story told in a pleasant, light vein. Very Good, some discoloration to cloth, soiling to page edges, in rather soiled dustjacket, but otherwise Good, quarter sized chip at upper rear panel.

Gill, Eric (Artist)
(n. p.), 1928. Limited Edition. No binding. Near fine. No. 30 of an unknown limitation, signed by Eric Gill. Large collotype print of John Gray, numbered 30 (possibly of 50, per the prior owner's note), signed and dated in the plate, and additionally signed by Gill in pencil in the lower lefthand corner of the illustration. Gray was an aesthetic poet of the 1890s and friend of such literary luminaries of the Decadent period as Ernest Dowson, Aubrey Beardsley, and Oscar Wilde; Gray is purported to be the inspiration for the title character in Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray. Gray later converted to Catholicism, followed by his longtime life-partner, Marc-Andre Raffalovich, a patron of the arts who supported Eric Gill, among others; Gill designed bookplates for both men, and drew a portrait of Raffalovich, as well. Offwhite paper printed in black. 16" x 12". Near fine, with only minor wear to edges and a few very faint spots of foxing. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard shipping charge does not always cover costs; please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind book we sell.

LYONS, Eugene
London: Harraps, The Right Book Club., N.D, 1928. London: Harraps, The Right Book Club.. Very Good in Very Good+ dust jacket. N.D.. Reprint. Hardback. A very good, tight copy. Not dated, blue cloth backing cream-coloured boards. Duplicate (second) copy of this very scarce dust-wrapper present with book. Both dust-wrappers are in excellent condition with the second one extremely bright and crisp. Minor chipping to upper d.w., edges dusty from storage, cloth a little age darkened, a little browning to endmatter else an excellent copy. ; "A bitter record of rather over-emphasised disillusionment by an American Communist who was in Russia as a journalist from 1928-1934" (Grierson). Following his return from the Soviet Union, Lyons very briefly flirted with Trotskyism and Leon Trotsky himself initially praised Assignment in Utopia but later became quite critical. George Orwell's "1984" was much influenced by this work. This is a rare early example of a Foyle's 'The Right Book Club' publication, undated. (First UK Harraps edition 1938) and printed by the Hollen Street Press in London, W1. Striking dust-wrapper design, unknown artist. ; ix+658pp pages .
