        The Return of Sherlock Holmes (Original screenplay for the 1929 film)

      Los Angeles: Paramount Pictures, 1929. Early treatment for the 1929 film, the first Sherlock Holmes film to have been produced with sound, and the first to include the Holmes utterance, "Elementary, my dear Watson" (a phrase never used by Doyle), though that statement regrettably does not appear in this draft. The first known treatment was written by Oliver P. Garrett, followed by this one, scripted by F. Hugh Herbert, and the final writing credits went to Garrett Fort and director Basil Dean. This treatment differs substantially from the finished film, and is more faithful to Doyle's source material. A rare surviving artifact from the great detective's earliest days on the screen. Side-stitched tall self-wrappers, noted as an "Outline Treatment" on the front wrapper, rubber-stamped project No. 1491 and MASTER FILE, dated May 21, 1929, with a credit for screenwriter Herbert. 52 leaves, mixed original and carbon typescript on yellow stock, with a few holograph pencil notations on the first leaf, including "1st Rough Draft." Very Good condition, with some wear to the first leaf at the bottom stitch.

First edition, first issue. 1 vols. 8vo. Set in the Italian campaign during World War One, and based in part on his own experiences, Hemingway's novel is a love story between American soldier, Frederic Henry, and the nurse Catherine Barkley.

Censors took a dimmer view of some of the language employed, replacing certain words with dashes throughout the text.

        The Fairy Caravan.

      Philadelphia: David McKay Co.,, 1929. Large octavo. Original green boards, illustration pasted down to front board, gilt titles to spine. With the dust jacket. Housed in a red quarter morocco solander box made by the Chelsea Bindery. 6 colour and numerous monochrome illustrations in the text by the author. Light bumped to lower end of spine, light occasional spotting to pages, in the dust jacket with light spotting, light wear along extremities, chips to ends of spine, closed tears along spine folds. A very good copy. Signed limited edition, number 48 of 100 copies signed by the author. The bibliographic story of this book is strangely charming and endearingly amateurish. Potter considered this story of a miniature animal-run travelling circus as "too personal [and] autobiographical" for her comfortably to allow publication in England. She arranged for the Philadelphia publishing house of David McKay to produce a nicely proportioned and illustrated edition. However, due to reciprocal arrangements between the US and England, publication in one nation implied a consequent relinquishment of rights in the other. Potter therefore took 100 sets of sheets from the US edition and had the local printer run off 100 copies of an altered first signature (8 pages), together with a further leaf, substituted the one for the other and had this hybrid plainly bound. Potter took the opportunity to replace the printed dedication "To Henry" with several illustrations of her pet dogs. The first UK trade edition did not appear until 1952.

        Autograph letter signed ("Moritz").

      Vienna, 7. I. 1929. - Large 8vo. 5 pp. Important letter to his friend, the actress Gerda Tardel: "[.] I am again severely burdened with unpleasant tasks, especially scientific correspondence and reading dissertations, and I am thereby hampered in developing my own thoughts. But that makes no difference: I do manage to finish the really important things, and the more I encounter the true brilliance of genius, the less importance I attach to the normal professorial productions. In the meantime, a long-planned project, a series which I would like to edit and which I hope will achieve nothing less than a revolutionary reform of philosophy, is getting under way [.]". - Together with Philipp Frankl, Schlick was soon to introduce the "Schriften zur wissenschaftlichen Weltauffassung", which he would go on to edit until his death.

        The Vicar of Wakefield.

      Harrap 1929 - FIRST RACKHAM EDITION, 4/775 COPIES signed by the artist, 12 colourprinted plates and other illustrations in the text, all by Arthur Rackham, title and Rackham design on title-page printed in red, preliminary leaves foxed, one leaf a little creased, pp. 232, 4to, original cream parchment, lettering and design on backstrip and lettering on front cover within a double-rule border, all blocked in gilt, endpapers with designs in green by Rackham, t.e.g., others untrimmed, very good. Publisher, George Harrap's copy, with his bookplate on the front free endpaper verso. Beneath the statement of limitation is a pen-and-ink drawing by Rackham, drawn for Harrap, of a character leading his horse with one hand whilst placing money into a beggar's outstretched hand with the other. The drawing is also signed by Arthur Rackham. A REVEALING AND IMPORTANT 3-page letter from Rackham to the publisher George Harrap is loosely inserted, dated 22 Jan/30. Rackham was recovering from an operation and apologises for the fact that 'I am afraid I have to conclude that I shall not be able to do a book at all this year - unless, later, there happened to be just time for "The Night before Christmas"' (eventually published in 1931). Presumably upon recommendation, he had read Our Village and Cranford: 'I have seized the opportunity to read "Our Village" - I really don't find myself much interested in it. But I have considered it, & Cranford, most carefully: I frankly don't feel fitted for either of them. The charming depiction & gentle view of character which is their strength is beyond me to illuminate.' He proceeds to relate that with which he is more at ease 'I need greater license - something that allows a freer interpretation. The Vicar came more readily - partly because its period is just enough more remote. But I wish I could discover something that allowed a more fantastic, or even grotesque, & less respectful treatment.' (Latimore & Haskell p.65: Riall p.170)

        A Farewell to Arms

      Charles Scribner's/Scribner, New York 1929 - Octavo, 355 pp., Nice clean book. Jacket is wrapped in a fresh Mylar protective sleeve. Jacket has edge tears & small edge chips. Small scuffs on paper spine label. First edition book with Scribner's seal on copyright page. Hanneman 8A. Original black cloth, gilt paper printed labels. First state jacket with $2.50 on front flap and misspelled " Katharine" in flap text. Some sunning on jacket. AA couple old tape repairs on jacket. Few spots of foxing on preliminary pages. This book is set during the Italian campaign of World War I. Published in 1929, it is a first-person account of American Frederic Henry, serving as a Lieutenant in the ambulance corps of the Italian Army. The title is taken from a poem by 16th-century English dramatist George Peele. The publication of A Farewell to Arms cemented Hemingway's stature as a modern American writer, became his first best- seller, and has been described as " the premier American war novel from that debacle World War I." This copy was owned by English author Dennis Wheatley whose prolific output of thrillers and occult novels made him one of the world's best-selling writers from the 1930s through the 1960s. His Gregory Sallust series was one of the main inspirations for Ian Fleming's James Bond stories. Wheatley's bookplate is inside. His library was dispersed by Blackwells in 1979 and this book was in the catalog. The dust jacket was not mentioned or described at that time, but neither were many jackets in catalogs then. This book reappeared for sale in 2011 with this jacket described. It is not known if the jacket was overlooked in the original catalog, or married to the book later.

        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There

      London: Macmillan and Co., 1929 Two volumes. Miniature Edition, later printing. Finely bound in full red calf by Riviere and Son (Bayntun), with five raised bands to the spine, contrasting green and black title labels lettered in gilt to the spines, decorative gilt tooling to the spine compartments, Alice with a White Rabbit illustration to the front board in gilt, gilt, Looking Glass with an illustration of the Red Queen in gilt, all edges gilt, gilt turn-ins, red marbled endpapers. Near fine, with a hint of rubbing to the extremities, some very faint toning to the spines, a hint of light soiling to the boards, bright gilt, some minor spotting to the endpapers, otherwise clean interiors. Overall, a beautiful set in handsome fine bindings. Housed in a matching custom red marbled slipcase by Bayntun. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson wrote the nonsensical story Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, first published in 1866, under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll for Alice Liddell, who was a frequent subject of Dodgson's revolutionary portrait photography. It tells the story of a young girl who falls through a rabbit hole into a dream world filled with strange and interesting characters. Through the Looking Glass, first published by Macmillan in 1872, is the sequel to Alice and tells the story of Alice's venture into a fantasy world through the mirror above her fireplace. Just as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland relies on the imagery of playing cards, Through the Looking Glass is laden with chess imagery. Notably, Through the Looking Glass employs a mirror motif, with many backward-printed texts and scenarios that appear to be the reverse of scenes from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Both novels are illustrated by John Tenniel, with whom Carrol had a somewhat volatile relationship as a result of their mutual perfectionism. Indeed, the true first edition of Alice was suppressed because of unsatisfactory illustrations, and Through the Looking Glass's illustrations were heavily edited, with Carroll even replacing Tenniel's "Jabberwock" plate with an image of the White Knight, which was less frightening, as a frontispiece.. Illus. by Tenniel, John. Hard Cover. Near Fine.
