        In Defense of Myself

      Portland ME: Privately Printed. (n.d. - 1929). First. First edition of this broadside protesting the banning of his 1929 first novel The Bastard by the county attorney in Portland, Maine.

He continues by defending his unfortunate characters as if they themselves were real people under attack by the judicial system. .

        Fairy Tales Of Kootenay [FIRST EDITION PUBLISHED 1929 & SIGNED AND DEDICATED BY THE AUTHOR]

      Arthur H Stockwell, London, 1929. First Edition. Hardcover. Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. Signed by Author. Catherine Armsmith aka Catherine Anthony Clark 1892-1977, was born in London and emigrated to Canada in 1914. In 1919 she married Leonard Clark and settled in the Kootenay Mountains of British Columbia. According to ‘CANADIAN CHILDREN'S BOOKS 1799-1939 in the Special Collections and University Archives Division, The University of British Columbia Library’& A BIBLIOGRAPHICAL CATALOGUE compiled by SHEILA A. EGOFF ‘Fairy tales of Kootenay is probably her first book, and in its setting heralds the background and the Canadian mythic figures that made Clark the first important fantasist in Canada’ Here we find Indian spirits and British Columbia's Ogopogo – a creature akin to Scotland’s Loch Ness Monster. Other stories deal with a mermaid, a dragon, a gnome and other figures common in British fantasy. As far as we can tell this book was the only one to be published under the Armsmith pseudonym –possibly her maiden name-. Researching her background we found that apparently she began writing for ‘The Prospector’, the community newspaper in Nelson, British Columbia. Clark’s later works, for which she became famous include: The Sun Horse (1951), winner of the Canadian Association of Children's Librarians bronze medal in 1952, The One-Winged Dragon (1955), The Silver Man (1958), The Diamond Feather; or The Door in the Mountain: A Magic Tale for Children (1962), The Hunter and the Medicine Man (1966) and The Man with the Yellow Eyes (1963). Contents: The Spirit of Kootenay; The Whistling Pine; The Mother-of-Pearl Child; The Gnome in Chains; The Phantom Pirates; The Indian Necklace; The Winged Horses; The Dragon; The Magic Umbrella. Book - [SEE SCANS] - in Very Good blue boards with gilt lettering - light marking to the boards, some sunning to the spine, light bumping to the extreme corners and extreme ends of the spine. Contents, some browning to the occasional page and to the extreme page edges, the illustration opposite page 53 has light marking to the extreme verso edges [SEE SCAN], there is a crease to the rear free end paper otherwise the contents clean and tightly bound. Few copies of this important early example of Clark’s work exist, this one is enhanced by being a copy the author gave or intended to give to the great British author G.K. Chesterton. The front free endpaper bears the inscription: ‘To Gilbert K. Chesterton Esq from C. Armsmith Clark’& Size: 7.5 inches tall by 5 inches. 80 pages.

        The Poet and The Lunatics. Episodes in The Life of Gabriel Gale

      London, Cassell. 1929, 1929. First Edition. 8vo. Near fine copy in publisher's black ribbed cloth, titled in bright gilt to the spine. Slightly bumped at the head of the spine. Dustwrapper worn at head and tail of spine with trifling loss, a little chipped to the extremties, bright and unfaded, there is a little darkening to the spine chiefly noticeable from the result of the removal of a label at the base of the spine that has resulted in a noticeably cleaner spot. Light spotting to page edges, internally clean. Gabriel Gale is an eccentric poet. His madness is the madness of insight and he uses this gift to solve or prevent crimes committed by madmen. Chesterton ably illustrates his own premise that lunacy and sanity may just be a point of view... Bleiler; Checklist of Fantastic Literature [281]. Book Collector No.273, p34.

Steven was a pseudonym of the famed juvenile fiction author, for this book]. Also another signature by her on the title page, by the name E.E. Steven, with which she identifies that name as "pseud". Octavo, 268 pp. Orange cloth with black imprint and black author's [Yates'] stylized royal palm tree device on the cover. Matching orange and black dustjacket (quite scarce itself). A handsome very good plus book, showing light cover soiling, minor bumping at the corners (no loss of cloth), and shelf wear at the tips of the spine . Jacket is a solid vg, complete with a few small chips and some soiling. A pseudonymous journy into mystery and romance by "E.E. Steven" - that being beoved juvenile fiction author Katherine M. Yates, author of the magical A Tale From the Rainbow land and a number of other titles. Yates presumably took the pseudonym for this one because it was her first venture into detective/mystery fiction, being the tale of two troublesome sisters diving into a Hawaiian mystery, and this was at the time a bit off her established track. Not to worry - it turned out just fine, remarkable and charming fiction. Books with Yates' signature are extremely scarce, yet it appears twice here, with a nice Hawaiian inscription.

        Rot Gegen Rot

      Deutsche Verlags-Anstalt, Stuttgart, Germany, 1929, Cloth, Book Condition: Very Good, Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket, First Edition, Signed by Author258pp; This is an extremely rare book with an incredible history. Based on my research, here is what I have learned: Josef Breitbach was born in Germany in 1903. From 1925 to 1928, he worked at a book dealer "Landauer" in Augsburg. While there, he developed relationships with the Communist Party. In 1928, he wrote and published this book, Rot Gegen Rot (Red Against Red), and was fired from his job in Germany because of the book.Josef wasn't popular with the German government either, and moved to France in 1929. While there, he published his next book in 1932, and the Germans banned his books in 1933. All in all, more than 4100 publications were banned by the Germans, but even on the short lists, Rot Gegen Rot is always one of the prominent books listed. Many of these books were collected and burned, but it is impossible to know how many actually survived. This particular copy must have been taken to France by Josef when he moved there. It was given as a gift to the wife of a prominent Jewish Rabbi (Adolf Phillipsborn) on April 15, 1936 in Paris, as noted in the inscription and by the Rabbi's bookplate. Josef Breitbach went on to fame as a writer in Europe until his death. The "Josef Breitbach Award" has been awarded annually since 1998 to the best German writer, and is considered the highest German literary prize. As for the book itself, it is in very good condition. It measures 7 1/2" x 5", and is covered in beige cloth with orange and black lettering. There is virtually no edgewear, but the corners are rounded. There is quite a bit of spotting on the cover and some minor soiling. The pages are slightly yellowed, but are tight and clean, and are in fine condition. The book is written entirely in German.Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 pounds.

      Bristol: Douglas Cleverdon, 1929.. Limited edition, one of 400 copies from a total edition of 490, this copy not numbered, 4to, (xii), 49, (5) pp. Frontispiece and 103 plates showing 147 engravings. Gill's own copy, with his bookplate and annotations to the List of Engravings, plus a marginal note to his Introduction. The Prospectus for this work is loosely inserted, with Gill's pencil calculations to the final page as to how much money each variant of the edition will bring in - a total of £3,192, plus a press cutting and a couple of other pieces of ephemera inserted as well. Original black cloth, gilt vignette to upper cover, hinges cracked but the covers still firmly attached by the ties. Held in a recent quarter calf folding box. A unique copy of a scarce title - the first collection of Gill's work, including his magnificent illustrations for several Golden Cockerel Press books as well as more humble designs for the St. Dominic's Press and many other ephemeral pieces. Gill's Preface sets out his unique philosophy, concluding with two pages of Latin. "Whatever may be said of life, it remains that, in art, desire may be feeble or insufficient, but it can never be wrong; it is the intellect that makes mistakes". Next to the sentence "Being a Catholic I naturally accepted the Catholic faith - as one intending to go to Peterborough naturally takes the train there" Gill has written "Why Peterboro'? because it was in the train to Peterboro' that this part of this preface was written.

In 1919 she married Leonard Clark and settled in the Kootenay Mountains of British Columbia. According to ?CANADIAN CHILDREN'S BOOKS 1799-1939 in the Special Collections and University Archives Division, The University of British Columbia Library? A BIBLIOGRAPHICAL CATALOGUE compiled by SHEILA A. EGOFF ?Fairy tales of Kootenay is probably her first book, and in its setting heralds the background and the Canadian mythic figures that made Clark the first important fantasist in Canada? Here we find Indian spirits and British Columbia's Ogopogo ? a creature akin to Scotland?s Loch Ness Monster. Other stories deal with a mermaid, a dragon, a gnome and other figures common in British fantasy. As far as we can tell this book was the only one to be published under the Armsmith pseudonym ?possibly her maiden name-. Researching her background we found that apparently she began writing for ?The Prospector?, the community newspaper in Nelson, British Columbia. Clark?s later works, for which she became famous include: The Sun Horse (1951), winner of the Canadian Association of Children's Librarians bronze medal in 1952, The One-Winged Dragon (1955), The Silver Man (1958), The Diamond Feather; or The Door in the Mountain: A Magic Tale for Children (1962), The Hunter and the Medicine Man (1966) and The Man with the Yellow Eyes (1963).
