You may like to know that I am making a play of it. Mole End doesnÕt come into it. (Do you mind very much?) It was that or BadgerÕs House, and I had to have BadgerÕs. I am sorry about Mole End, because my wife and I love the chapter more than any; I do hope you have statues of Garibaldi and Samuel in your garden. I was at Westminster with a Hubback - any relation? Yours sincerely A. A. Milne.Ó [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Look Homeward, Angel: A Story of the Buried Life

      New York: Charles Scribners 1929 - First edition, first printing. Publisher's navy cloth, lettered in gilt. Near fine or better, with a hint of light wear to the spine ends, faint dimming to the spine, else bright and fresh. A very handsome copy. A semiautobiographical bildungsroman, Look Homeward, Angel is Wolfe's first published novel. It tells the story of Eugene Gant, a young man from a small town with an intense sense of wanderlust and a burning desire to find intellectual fulfilment. Wolfe, who was also from a small-town and filled with ambitious dreams as a child, poured much of his own experiences into the novel; as he explains in his prefatory note, "We are the sum of all the moments of our lives- all that is ours is in them: we cannot escape or conceal it. If the writer has used the clay of life to make his book, he has only used what all men must, what none can keep from using. Fiction is not fact, but fiction is fact selected and understood, fiction is fact arranged and changed with a purpose." Look Homeward, Angel was an immediate commercial and critical success, garnering much attention for the young writer. Notably, this novel takes its title from John Milton's poem "Lycidas" and was adapted into a play of the same name by Ketti Fring in 1957. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Sibilla poema drammatico in quattro atti.

      Milano, L?Eroica, 1929. In 4to grande (cm. 31); copertina originale con titolo e grande fregio dentro ad un cerchio; pp. 219, (13); centinaia di bellissime incisioni in nero, con tavole illustrative del testo, testatine, capilettera, cartigli e finalini. Tiratura limitata di 1333 esemplari numerati stampati nell'Officina Fratelli Magnani di Pescia. Esemplare firmato dall'autore e dall'editore (Ettore Cozzani). Il libro è considerato l'opera principale di Sartorio; Sibilla si rifa' alla leggenda medioevale di Lionello e Sibilla: lui Cavaliere di Santa Romana Chiesa, lei maga incantatrice, abitante degli inferi. Una parte delle splendide illustrazioni, elaborate dal Sartorio nell'arco di un decennio, videro la luce su L'Eroica tra il 1913 e il '14.  Cozzani ne segnalò la particolarità tecnica, trattandosi di incisioni su zinco anziché su legno, col metodo dell'incisione in rilievo ad effetto xilografico. Di grande effetto il risultato grafico e pittorico complessivo, degno testimone della maturità artistica del Sartorio. Axs

        A Relation between Distance and Radial Velocity among Extra-Galactic Nebulae. SS. 168-173. In: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Volume 15.

      Washington, Selbstverlag, 1929.. (24 x 17,5 cm). IX, 924 S. Mit zahlreichen Abbildungen. Halbleinwandband der Zeit.. Erste Ausgabe seiner wichtigsten Arbeit; ein Meilenstein in der Geschichte der Wissenschaften. - Hubble und Humason entdecken bei der Mehrheit der von ihnen untersuchten Galaxien eine Rotverschiebung des Spektrums. Sie interpretieren diese Frequenzverschiebung als Dopplereffekt und leiten daraus ab, dass sich diese Galaxien von uns entfernen. Hubbel beschreibt in vorliegender Veröffentlichung erstmals den von ihm entdeckten linearen Zusammenhang zwischen Rotverschiebung und Entfernung von Galaxien und kommt zu der Erkenntnis, dass sich diese Galaxien umso schneller von uns fort bewegen, je weiter sie entfernt sind. Er bestätigt damit die von Georges Lemaitre im Juni 1927 postulierte Expansion des Weltalls. - Stempel auf Titel. Einband gering berieben, sonst sauber und wohlerhalten. - DSB 6, 528 First edition, journal issue. - "By 1929 Hubble had obtained distances for eighteen isolated galaxies and for four members of the Virgo cluster. In that year he used this somewhat restricted body of data to make the most remarkable of all his discoveries and the one that made his name famous far beyond the ranks of professional astronomer. This was what is now known as Hubble's law of proportionality of distance and radial velocity of galaxies... This result has come to be generally regarded as the outstanding discovery in twentieth-century astronomy. It hade as great a change in man's conception of the universe as the Copernican revolution 400 years before. For, instead of an overall static picture of the cosmos, it seemed that the universe must be regarded as expanding, the rate of the mutual recession of its parts increasing with their relative distance" (DSB). - Bound in contemporary half cloth, slightly rubbed. Stamp to title. A very good to fine copy

        Kat and Copy-Cat

      Honolulu: Patten Co., Ltd., 1929 Honolulu: The Patten Co., Ltd., 1929. First Edition. Signed and inscribed by the author, Katherine Yates, on the ffep [E.E. 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. L4
