        The Conan Doyle Stories

      JOHN MURRAY, London 1929 - This book was published in Arthur Conan Doyle's Lifetime. - Rare First Printing with the Original Dustjacket. - 6 Volumes in 1: The Ring and the Camp / Pirates and Blue Water / Terror and Mystery / Twilight and the Unseen / Adventure and Medical Life / Tales of Long Ago. - 76 Stories - 1216 pages. - Stated on the copyright page: First Edition in One Volume. 1929. - Preface by ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE is dated: April 26, 1929 - On the inner prelim of the original dustjacket, there is a message from Sir Winston Churchill who wrote: 'Of course I read every Sherlock Holmes story, but the works I like even more than the detective stories are the great historical novels which, like Sherlock Holmes, have certainly found a permanent place in English literature.'. - This volume comprises most of Conan Doyle's short stories other than those relating to the great detective Sherlock Holmes. - The ORIGINAL dustjacket bears the price of 20s net to the bottom of the inner front prelim. It has slight water damage to the bottom. It is a little soiled in general but it is complete and intact. - Boards are rust coloured cloth with gold/gilt lettering to the spine and front board. The spine cloth is lighter than the boards and there is a fair amount of soiling to the cloth. The binding remains tight. - Written inside the front board it states: 'Sitwell' - I am hoping the signature belongs to Edith Sitwell but this is not authenticated. - There is a minimum amount of foxing to the endpages and throughout the book. - 'There is an error in how many pages there actually are because there are in fact 1202 pages. It does not mean that there are 14 pages missing; it means that they made an error on the dustjacket. The very last story does actually finish on page 1202 because at the bottom of the last page the printers name appears which always appears on the very last page of a book'. - Apart from the page edges being browned, the pages are in a beautifully clean condition. - The top edge is still a deep red in colour. - Overall; a fabulous book. - Few small bonus items for fun: First is a small soft cardwrap book: 1925 - First Printing - Poetry by Edith Sitwell with coverart by Vanessa Bell. Published by: Leonard & Virginia Woolf at The Hogarth Press in 1925. Book Condition: There was not a dustjacket issued with this book. Vanessa Bell [Virginia Woolf's Sister] designed the beautiful illustration on the front board. Slim card covered book and spine is not present. Minor edge and corner wear, lightly scuffed and soiled. Pages are browned and foxed mainly to endpages and inner boards. Pages slight loose at margin but all is intact. Few small pencil notations. & A signed cheque written by Arthur Conan Doyle and a copy of his signature. [both are photocopies on glossy paper]. END --- POSTAGE OPTIONS: Our orders are shipped within 1 or 2 business days. If you select 'Priority' as the postal option, you will get the fastest option.

Front flyleaf with ink ownership inscription of "Arthur W. Poulin / November, 1944 / San Francisco." Slocum & Cahoon, B-10. One-inch tears at top of front and bottom of rear joint, spine a little scuffed, covers with faint soiling, two small chips to fore edge of front cover, otherwise the fragile wrappers in excellent condition. Except for slight browning at edges because of paper stock, fine internally. Called by Richard Ellmann the "first apologia" for "Finnegans Wake," this is Sylvia Beach's third and last Joyce publication, the Shakespeare & Company printing of 12 studies by well-known writers dealing with Joyce's linguistic innovations in the published installments of the experimental "Work in Progress," which was to become "Finnegans Wake." The dozen writers, all of whom were supporters of the project, included Samuel Beckett, Marcel Brion, Frank Budgen, Stuart Gilbert, Eugene Jolas, Victor Llona, Robert McAlmon, Thomas McGreevy, Elliot Paul, John Rodker, Robert Sage, and William Carlos Williams. The section by Beckett constitutes his first appearance in print. There are also two letters here finding fault with the writing, one of them apparently written by Joyce himself, and there are a number of quotations from the work, including a section (on Swift and blindness) that did not make it into the final version of the novel. This special limited version is uncommonly seen for sale: ABPC lists just three copies (one of them bedraggled) in the past 20 years. FIRST PRINTING. ONE OF 96 SPECIAL COPIES IN THE LIMITED EDITION (there was also a trade edition of 200 copies) [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      1929 - By Samuel Beckett, Marcel Brion, Thomas McGreevy, John Rodker, and others. With Letter of Protest by G.V.L. Slingsby and Vladimir Dixon. London: Faber, 1929. First English edition. Pages, 194, uncut. Light blue cloth binding, gilt title on spine, in original dust jacket. A fine copy. Presentation copy inscribed by Beckett: 'For Michael Curtis Sam Beckett London June 1979.' This early critique of Joyce's final work, from twelve different angles (attributed to Joyce's two pseudonyms G.V.L. Slingsby and Vladimir Dixon), dealing with Joyce's linguistic innovations in instalments of the experimental Work in Progress. It published some ten years prior to the publication of 'Finnegans Wake', and includes a passage which was omitted from the finished novel. Part of the incentive to publish was apparently to raise funds for the perennially impecunious Joyce. Beckett's first appearance in print. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Writings of Mark Twain, The.

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1929. - The Stormfield EditionTWAIN, Mark. The Writings of Mark Twain. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1929.Stormfield Edition. Limited to 1,024 numbered sets. Thirty-seven octavo volumes. Title-pages printed in red and black. Photogravure frontispieces and plates (including portraits) after drawings, paintings, etc. by E.W. Kemble, Howard Pyle, Dan Beard, W.H.W. Bicknell, P. Newell, J.Allen St. John, A.B. Frost, and others.Original dark blue fine-bead cloth, gilt triple-rule border with the gilt stencil signature of Mark Twain on the front cover. Spine lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut. A fine set in the original pale blue dust jackets with printed paper labels on the spine.The Stormfield edition of the Writings of Mark Twain, published in 1929, is identical in every way (with the exception of Twain's signature) to the Definitive Edition which had been published by Gabriel Wells in 1922. Even the limitation of these two sets were the same, both being limited to 1,024 numbered copies. The only difference between the two editions was the addition of an inserted 'signed leaf' in the first volume of the Definitive edition. Twain had signed these leaves in 1906 in anticipation of the edition but died but died twelve years before it's publication in 1922. In fact the full cloth binding on the Stormfield edition is certainly superior to the quarter blue cloth over paper boards of the Definitive edition.The 'Stormfield' edition was named after Mark Twain's final home "The Clemens family was itinerant from 1891 until well after Olivia's death in 1904, trying out a number of houses, none of which they found ultimately congenial. Fully out of debt, Clemens decided toward the end of his life to try and recover the feeling of stability that the Hartford home represented by building another house, this time in Redding, Connecticut, where he had purchased nearly 250 acres of land in 1906. In 1907, he commissioned John Mead Howells, son of William Dean Howells, to design the house, and allowed, or perhaps even encouraged, daughter Clara to participate in planning and overseeing construction. Built on the money he earned on "Extract from Captain Stormfield's Visit to Heaven," he named the house "Stormfield" and lived there until his death in 1910. Clara sold the house many years after her father's death. When the house burned down, it's owners built a near replica, which remains in private hands." (Gregg Camfield. The Oxford Comapnion to Mark Twain, p. 267).

        The Little Nugget

      The Curtiss Press 1929 - New York F/VG+. Red cloth in the same format as the Ist with same design ,printer not stated but possibly the same as the Watt edition. A fine copy with a wrapper that has wear and repair to the O on the top edge. An interesting item and I have never seen a copy either book or wrapper listed or offered for sale at auction .This was the only Wodehouse title published by Curtiss and the book is listed in Macilvaine with a price of US$2.00 ,which seems to indicate that that there is at least another copy in wrapper but its strange that no copies have surfaced I dont know anything about The Curtiss Press but they were small and operated in the late 20's early thirties so perhaps they were taken over by another publisher .
