      London: Methuen & Co. Ltd., 1929 - Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt and to upper board in blind. Cloth a little rubbed, corners bumped, very faint toning to endpapers. An excellent copy. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "A. M. Carr-Saunders, with compliments from W. O. S. 3rd February 1929". A Modern Theory of Ethics was Stapledon's first published work of prose, based on the thesis for his PhD in philosophy awarded at the University of Liverpool in 1925. The recipient, A. M. Carr-Saunders (1886–1966), was a biologist and eugenicist and the author of The Population Problem. He is credited by Stapledon on page vi of the introduction to this volume for "advice on those chapters which refer to biological principles". [Attributes: First Edition]

        Road and street maps of California and Los Angeles c.1929.

      Los Angeles c. 1929, Automobile Club of Southern California. 105 strip maps on heavy paper (27 x 9,5 cm) + folding index map to the strip maps + 17 folding general maps (in different scales and sizes) of Los Angeles, southern California counties, the state of California and and parts of the western United States. All housed in a brown paper folder with the serial no: 9260 and the no: 26970. The maps are housed in a brown paper folder with ties. The title and the affiliate clubs of southern California are printed on a slip card placed at the front of the portfolio. An interesting collection of road maps published by the "Automobile Club of Southern California", one of the first motor clubs in the US, founded as early as 1900. The club began publishing road maps in 1906. They also put up road signs made of porcelain of which a few still stands today. There are no dates at the maps, but they are not published earlier than 1923 since the addresses on the maps are 2601, Figueroa Street where the club settled that year. It is till the headquarters of the club today. City Hall was inaugurated in 1928, it is marked on the map "Principal automobile routes in and out of Los Angeles". LAX was opened in 1930, but is not marked on the maps. Therefore the maps seems to be published in the second half of the 1920s. The strip maps are numbered 1-23, 26, 29-42, 46-50, 53, 55-57, 59-77, 79-88, 92-96, 133-140, 152-155, 162, 164, 200-204, 217-221. All depicting the greater Los Angeles area and southern California, except one which depicts the Bay area. The foding general maps are: Los Angeles City, Principal automobile routes in and out of Los Angeles. Los Angeles and Vicinity, Los Angeles County, Automobile routes from the Orange Belt Cities to the San Bernardino Mountain Resorts, Imperial County, San Diego County, San Luis Obispo County, Tulare County, Orange County, Santa Barbara County, Ventura County, Southern California and South Western Nevada embracing the arid region of Mojave Desert, Colorado Basin and Death Valley, State of California, Southern California and National Parks in relation to Southern California and Los Angeles.. The portfolio has a couple of tears and is partly split at one end. A piece of the paper frame holding the slip card at the front is missing. The "Los Angeles City" map with a few short splits at the fold intersections. Other maps are in good condition

        [Thirty-One Albums of Original Prints of Photographs, Representing Kent's Personal Archive of Images of His Excursions to Greenland, Alaska, Denmark, Puerto Rico, the American Southwest, Monhegan Island, of His Honeymoon in New Hampshire and of His Home, Asgaard]

      [Various Places]. [ca. 1929 - 1960s].. Thirty-one 7.5" x 6" leatherette albums categorized and identified by spine labels, captioned in ink in Kent's hand, containing 1125 individual original matte and glossy black & white 7" x 5" gelatin silver prints. Slight surface variations characteristic of ferrotyping, and some spotting, scratches and other blemishes in the negatives are evident in the prints; some are printed slightly askew; some oxidation, fading or other signs of the amateur processing is evident on occasion, otherwise remarkably good. Until his death Rockwell Kent maintained this collection of thirty-one albums of prints of his own photographs, as well as some photographs taken by others in his company on certain occasions, all arranged, identified and labeled according to locations and subjects. Apart from their categorization by placement in the notebooks, some occasional prints are identified by Kent in ink or bear his stamp. Kent frequently recorded scenes, people and settings via photographs during his voyages and travels, many of which he utilized as reference material, and are identifiable as such, in the production of his illustrations, prints and paintings made during and after his journeys. Kent made three trips to Greenland, first in 1929, and then in 1931-2 and 1934-5, and photographs from these three trips constitute the largest single subject element in the archive. The subjects break down generally as follow: 1) Greenland. 16 albums, including 549 images. 2) Asgaard. 8 albums, including 293 images. 3) Alaska. 1 album, including 46 images. 4) Monhegan Island. 2 albums, including 84 images. 5) Arizona, Colorado, California. 1 album, including 28 images. 6) Puerto Rico. 1 album, including 51 images. 7) Denmark. 1 album, including 43 images. 8) Hillsboro and Richmond. 1 album, including 31 images. Although obviously best known for his book illustrations, works on paper and paintings, Kent was sufficiently renowned as a photographer during the 1930s that some of his photographs were reproduced in photogravure in a portfolio, MODERN MASTERS OF PHOTOGRAPHY, SERIES 1 PICTORIALISTS, published by the Galleon Press. While those photogravures turn up separately with some frequency - usually well outside of their original context in the portfolio - individual original prints from negatives of Kent's photographs are scarce. We note as reference the appearance of a single Greenland print, also represented by a print in this archive, and in the same format, with Kent's ink rubber stamp on the verso: Swann Galleries, 15 May 2008, Lot 341, ($1300). ^Further details about the archive are available upon request.

        Spring Long Shore

      [Kent, CT: printed by the Meriden Gravure Company for Rex Brasher Associates, circa 1929-1932]. Quarto. (12 x 9 3/4 inches). 7 sheets (11 x 7 1/2 inches), with integral illustrations (6 after Brasher, 3 after photographs), mounted recto and verso of 4 sheets of larger blue-toned paper. Original card wrappers, illustrated titling to the upper cover, glassine wrapper. A unique off-print, specially prepared by Brasher for the man who shared his dream. E. Harold Hugo (1900-1985), or 'Al' as Brasher knew him, started work for Meriden Gravure Company, at 14. By the time he first met Brasher in the late 1920's he was a sales manager for the firm, and during World War II, he became general manager and in 1950 was named a director. He became president in 1969 before retiring in 1975. It is generally acknowledged that his greatest business achievement was to ensure that, under his leadership, the company won international renown for the quality of its work, but, perhaps his greatest individual business decision was to champion Rex Brasher's cause within his firm, a cause that was quickly taken up by company's president, Parker Allen. The company went on to provide (at very favourable rates) the uncoloured gravures that Brasher needed to illustrate his masterwork The Birds and Trees of North America, self-published by Brasher between 1929 and 1932, with 867 plates and numerous other illustrations. Brasher's nephew wrote of this deal: "The compact with Merdiden Gravure officers was altogether heartwarming and inspiring. Here were business men - almost total strangers, indifferent to security of any kind, willing and anxious to help a white- haired man realize a dream. ... It was ... a tribute to Rex. It was a tribute to his work. There could be no other inference. Rex could not help feeling a great flooding surge of satisfaction and new confidence" (M.E. Brasher Rex Brasher Painter of Birds p. 269). The present unique work, warmly inscribed with a small caricature self-portrait by Rex, was evidently intended by him as a small thank you to the salesmanager who became a friend. The text seems to correspond to that found in volume 11 of Rex's larger work (on Warblers, Wagtails, Pipits, etc.): the text which accompanies plates numbered 663-669 includes a narrative with the same title. The illustrated titling to the upper wrapper includes a version of the head-piece vignette on the first page of the text but is probably especially produced for this work. In effect it is a unique off-print, prepared by Brasher for Hugo because he had said how much he admired Rex's lyrical essay on the Long Island shore.

        Good-Bye To All That

      London: Jonathan Cape,, 1929. Octavo. Original red cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. Bookplate. Spine rolled and faintly toned, cloth a little dulled, half-title partially toned from inserted clipping, contents faintly toned. A very good copy in the supplied jacket that is rubbed and tanned with chips and short closed tears. First edition, first impression, first issue with the infamous Sassoon poem intact. The story of the suppression of this issue is well recorded. The book printed a poem Sassoon had written to Graves in letter form. Sassoon was horrified and demanded the recall of the edition and the excision of the offending pages. This was done and a second issue produced with asterisks marking where the passages had been. Ironically these honest, fearful and touching lines are some of the best Sassoon ever wrote.
