Hemingway, Ernest
Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1929. Signed limited first edition of this early Hemingway classic, which established him among the American masters. Tall octavo, original white parchment over green boards. One of 510 copies signed by Ernest Hemingway, this is number 128. Near fine in the rare original slipcase which is in very good condition, lacking the small bottom panel. A nice example. Written when Ernest Hemingway was thirty years old and lauded as the best American novel to emerge from World War I, A Farewell to Arms is the unforgettable story of an American ambulance driver on the Italian front and his passion for a beautiful English nurse. Set against the looming horrors of the battlefield—weary, demoralized men marching in the rain during the German attack on Caporetto; the profound struggle between loyalty and desertion—this gripping, semiautobiographical work captures the harsh realities of war and the pain of lovers caught in its inexorable sweep. Ernest Hemingway famously said that he rewrote the ending to A Farewell to Arms thirty-nine times to get the words right. Farewell To Arms is the only signed limited edition of Ernest Hemingway's works. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Hemingway Ernest
Jonathan Cape, 1929. First English edition, published the same year as the first American edition. 8vo, in a very handsome Asprey of London binding of full red crushed morocco, the boards framed in gilt, the spine with tall gilt tooled raised bands creating gilt framed compartments, four of which with handsome central gilt tool of crossed arms and bugle, gilt lettering in two compartments and gilt date at the foot, board edges gilt tooled, as are the turn-ins, red marbled endpapers, a.e.g. 350. A very fine and handsome copy both inside and out. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION IN AN IMPRESSIVE AND HANDSOME ASPREY BINDING of this true high-spot of 20th century literature and one of the Modern Library's top 100 novels of that century. Hemingway's moving and tragic tale of an American service man and the British nurse he falls in love with during the horrors of the first World War was only his second published novel. Hemingway's characters in even such an early novel as this, reflect the honesty and resonance that is so distinctive to his prose. The novel was based on Hemingway's own experiences serving in the Italian campaigns during the First World War. The inspiration for Catherine Barkley was Agnes von Kurowsky, a real nurse who cared for Hemingway in a hospital in Milan after he had been wounded. He had planned to marry her but she spurned his love when he returned to America. The Asprey bindings were produced for the firm by both Sangorski and Sutcliffe and by Zaehnsdorf, both highly important English binderies.

EDMONDS, Walter D.
Little Brown, Boston, 1929. First edition. Fine in a lovely dustwrapper that is just about fine except for a crease on the spine and some tiny edge tears. Scarce first book, a novel about life on the Erie Canal, by the author of *Drums Along the Mohawk*. This novel was the basis for Henry Fonda's first film, *The Farmer Takes a Wife*, directed by Victor Fleming and also featuring Janet Gaynor. Fonda had played the lead on Broadway but was only offered the film role after both Gary Cooper and Joel McCrea passed on it because of other commitments. It was later remade by Henry Levin into a musical with Betty Grable, Dale Robertson, and Thelma Ritter. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]

HUBBLE, Edwin
Carnegie Institution, [Washington, D.C.], 1929. First edition, a copy of the very rare offprint with outstanding provenance, of Hubble's landmark paper, which "made as great a change in man's conception of the universe as the Copernican revolution 400 years before" (DSB). This paper "is generally regarded as marking the discovery of the expansion of the universe" (Biographical Encyclopedia of Astronomers). It established what would later become known as Hubble's Law: that galaxies recede from us in all directions and more distant ones recede more rapidly in proportion to their distance. ". the repercussions were immense. The galaxies were not randomly dashing through the cosmos, but instead their speeds were mathematically related to their distances, and when scientists see such a relationship they search for a deeper significance. In this case, the significance was nothing less than the realization that at some point in history all the galaxies in the universe had been compacted into the same small region. This was the first observational evidence to hint at what we now call the Big Bang" (Simon Singh, Big Bang). Hubble's "result has come to be regarded as the outstanding discovery in twentieth-century astronomy" (DSB). Provenance: Herbert McLean Evans (1882-1971), anatomist, endocrinologist and bibliophile (bookplate); Important Scientific Books: The Richard Green Library, Christie's, New York, 17 June 2008, lot 185.

Winston S. Churchill
1929. The World Crisis: The Aftermath Winston S. Churchill London: Thornton Butterworth Ltd., 1929 First British edition, in dust jacket Condition: Very Good Jacket Condition: Very Good This is a jacketed British first edition, first printing of the fifth and penultimate volume of Churchill's monumental history of the First World War. A quarter of a century before the Second World War endowed him with lasting fame, Winston Churchill played a uniquely critical, controversial, and varied role in the "War to end all wars". This volume deals with the postwar years 1918 to 1928. Though the U.S. first edition of The World Crisis preceded the British, many consider the British edition aesthetically superior, with its larger volumes and shoulder notes summarizing the subject of each page. Unfortunately, the original dust jackets are scarce and the smooth navy cloth of the British first editions proved quite susceptible to wear, the contents prone to spotting and toning. Moreover, the cloth binding of this fifth volume proved particularly susceptible to blistering. Condition of this first edition, first printing is very good in a very good dust jacket. The blue cloth binding is bright, square and tight, with shelf wear to the bottom edge, minor wear to the spine ends and corners, and a barely discernible partial ring stain to the upper front cover. Blistering is nominal for the edition, with just a hint at the lower hinges. The contents remain respectably bright with a crisp, unread feel. We find no previous ownership marks. Differential toning to the endpapers corresponding to the … [Click Below for Full Description]

GAULOISES-CIGARETTES-SEITA.
1929Maquette d'affiche gouachée sur papier cartonné, 1929, signée et datée en bas à droite, 40 x 27.3 cm (format à vue), 40 x 30 cm (format de la feuille). Marcel Juseret (1895-1965) dit CELLO, est un affichiste, caricaturiste et dessinateur sportif français. Discret, pourtant talentueux, il réalisa des affiches pour différents annonceurs : pour Pathé Marconi, France Soir, la Coupe des Provinces Françaises organiée par la F.F.F. et créé par Paris Soir (1942), pour Recta "Le Linge qui va" (1931), Menier... Il illustra différents journaux sportifs dont Le Miroir des Sports, l'Auto, France Soir, Ici Paris... (in Dico Solo, p.152). Cello réalise un effet de surprise visuel en créant le personnage du Gaulois à partir de cigarettes, d'une allumette et d'un paquet bleu. L'effet patriotique est renforcé par l'utilisation des couleurs nationales : bleu, blanc rouge. Le message publicitaire est clair : Pour 2 francs 50, quand on est un fumeur patriotique, on préfère fumer des Gauloises bleues frappées du casque ailé. Maquette publicitaire pour les Gauloises Bleues. Plis, usures aux coins, quelques frottements et légères taches. Traces de repentir.

Maurice Dide (1873-1944) grand aliéniste, a dirigé pendant 30 ans l asile de Braqueville près de Toulouse. Avec Paul Guiraud, il crée en 1922 le terme d'athymhormie, perte de l'ardeur vitale et de l'affectivité, en remplacement du terme de « démence précoce » de Kraepelin. Les expériences pharmacologiques de P. Guiraud à Ste Anne dans les années 50 permirent à Pierre Deniker de faire valider le premier neuroleptique. - - - Ce classique de l'enseignement et de la diffusion de la psychiatrie à l'usage des praticiens a été adressé par les auteurs à Capgras, un des chefs de file de la psychiatrie moderne. L'auteur, avec « Sérieux des folies raisonnantes » a joint un compte-rendu manuscrit dans lequel il prend position sur la psychochirurgie à propos de l'article de Pierre Weirtheimer, « La lobotomie préfrontale » parue dans les Annales médicochirurgicales en mai 1948. Ce commentaire manuscrit cite également « Egas Moniz de Lisbonne initiateur 1935 » ainsi que Fremann et Watts à Whasington (« 300 observations en psycho-chirurgie »). Capgras prend position sur les buts de la lobotomie préfrontale, la technique, les suites post-opératoires, les indications, les résultats. Dans les dernières lignes de sa prise de position, Capgras indique « résultats. mortalité 3%. Réintervention 15%. Crise épileptique 10%. Bons résultats environ 30%.

HALL, Radclyffe
New York: Covici-Friede, 1929. First Limited Edition. hardcover. Virtually no rubbing of the silver on the spine, somewhat unusual for this title, but some small, light spotting to the spine of one volume. About Fine in a Near Fine slipcase with a partial split at the top edge, uncommon in this condition. The Victory Edition consisting of two large octavo volumes (6-1/4" x 9-3/4") bound in silver-stamped yellow cloth and blue boards printed on Van Gelder handmade paper. Copy #34 of only 225 copies SIGNED by the author. A pioneering book dealing with lesbianism. THE WELL OF LONELINESS provided an open treatment of lesbianism at a time when homosexuality could not be discussed in English books or in the English press. In 1920, the House of Lords declined to amend the criminal laws of England to include lesbians because the Lords would not acknowledge that they even existed. Following its 1928 publication in England, the book was ordered withdrawn from sale by the Secretary of the Home Office. Early in 1929 in New York, Charles Sumner, Secretary of the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice, acting under a warrant, raided the office of the publisher and removed 865 copies remaining from the sixth edition, then raided Macy's(!) book department. This edition contains a summary of the court proceedings by defense attorney Morris Ernst and a one-paragraph Commentary by Havelock Ellis, author of the (also) suppressed 1897 STUDIES IN THE PSYCHOLOGY OF SEX, who notes that "apart from its fine qualities as a novel by a writer of accomplished art . . . it is the first Engl … [Click Below for Full Description]

Preface: 'History shows, that for general purposes of improvement, the Arabian Horse has been selected for in the creation of most breeds; and he still remains the one unchanging element, the universal yeast, the admixture to his blood that the future of any breed can be assured. It has now happened that in this age of specialization, the horse world is felling the need of rejuvenation in breeds towards the more substantial virtues. The place for the Arabian Horse is again at hand' (p. vi).Mellon 364.#2105098
