Colorists' Models for the rare colored issue of 'Cherished Portraits'. "This was Connett's first major work in fine book production. It was contracted through Ernest Gee, and Mr. Woodward spared no expense ..." (Siegel, p. 52). The idea had come to Mr. Woodward, whose Belair Stables bred some of the greatest racehorses of the 1920s and 1930s, to do a book about the portraits he owned after listening to Mr. Vosburgh regale him with stories about them one Sunday afternoon. The portraits include Stubbs' 'Godolphin Arabian' and a vast stable of paintings by Herring Senior, racing scenes, and other works. "The twenty-one copy edition of Cherished Portraits of Thoroughbred Horses is one of the rarest works of its kind in America. ... It was Connett's most amibitious project, and if produced today would easily cost several thousand dollars per copy" (Siegel, p. 174).Unique survival of the production process for one of the great American sporting books of the interwar years, and a testament to Woodward's close involvement with the book.

' This is the first edition of this text. Illustrated, with eight photographic plates of Alexandra, her family and her acquaintances. Radziwillpenned many texts regarding the fall of the Russian empire andthe revolution such as Russia's Decline and Fall: The Secret History of a Great Debacle andSecrets of a Dethroned Royalty .

        Journey’s End (Scarce True First Printing)

      The true First UK printing published by Gollancz in 1929. The Wraps Book is complete and is in Very Good+ condition. Binding is tight. The covers are mildly soiled and toned. Spine intact but two small closed tears to the upper spine folds. End papers and prelims spotted with mild spotting to the page edges in places throughout. Free from inscriptions and erasures. Sherriff's good fortune with the phenomenal success of what is essentially a mediocre play depended in large part on the appearance in the intital production of the work - by the Incorporated Stage Society in a two-day run at the Apollo Theatre in December 1928 - of the 21-year old Lawrence Olivier (directed by the equally unknown James Whale). The production transferred to The Savoy Theatre for a three-week run in January 1929 and thence to The Prince of Wales where it ran for two years, during which time it was also produced by 14 other companies in the Anglophone world and in 17 other languages across the world. Hollywood beckoned . . . The luck also rubbed off on Victor Gollancz, for whom the text was a first major publishing coup, selling 175,000 copies. Self-wraps mention a cloth issue of which it appears there was no such. A very scarce title to find with such attributes. The Trade hardback edition was not to be published until the following year.

        Eigenh. Brief mit Unterschrift.

      Montreux , 23. X. 1929. - 4to. 2 pp. An Heinrich Prinz von Schönburg-Waldenburg, über Schönburgs „Erinnerungen aus kaiserlicher Zeit": „[ ] Mit vielem herzlichen Dank habe ich Dein Buch und die Karte erhalten. Gierig habe ich mich dann zum Studio gesetzt. Ich muss gleich sagen dass die Fülle von Gedanken und Geschehnissen die darin enthalten sind und die psychologischen Seiten der Ereignisse die Du schilderst sind so mannigfaltig und so hoch bedeutend dass das Buch eines wirklichen Studio bedarf. Alle meine Glückwünsche für die so hohe Auffassung und die äusserst vornehme Art mit welcher Du, mit wa[h]rem schriftstellerischem Talent, alles ohne jedes Pathos so schön und herzlich schildern konntest. Man steht ergriffen, das muss ich sagen, vor einer so aufrichtigen und grosszügigen Schilderung von kleinen und grossen Ereignissen eines ebenso vornehmen als klaren Geistes. Das Buch zeigt dass Du das von Dir Erlebtestets beherrscht hast und das alles von oben gesehen hast! Ich wäre stolz auf meinen Freund und auf seinem Worte wenn ich es schon nicht wäre und ihn auch ohne dieses Merkmal seiner Persönlichkeit stets richtig erkannt hätte. Wenn ich über die Einzelheiten des Werkes eingehen wollte müsste ich Bände schreiben, deshalb mag vorläufig alles was ich zu sagen hätte in den obigen Zeilen inbegriffen sein. Was Du in mehreren Stellen besonders auf Seite 254 über mich schreibst hat mich tief gerührt. Wie immerbis[t] Du wieder zu gut zu mir gewesen. Herzlich hat mich dabei gefreut dass Du für Falkenhayn den richtigen Ausdruck gebrauchtest, diesem unheilvollen Menschen demwir gewiss grössten Teil des heutigen Elend verdanken. Auf Seite 228 hast Du in kurzen Worten, oben, den ganzen Rätzel [sic!] der Niederlage gelöst! [ ]"
