        THE WORKS OF ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE The Crowborough Edition

      New York: Doubleday,Doran, 1930. Doyle, Arthur Conan. THE WORKS OF SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE. Garden City, NY: Doubleday, Doran, 1930. 23 (of 24) Volumes. An unusually fresh NEAR FINE set of Doyle's Crowborough Edition, the only complete collection of Doyle's works published in the author's lifetime, one of only 760 sets issued, and SIGNED by Doyle in Volume 1. Volume I with frontispiece portrait. Original publisher's linen-backed oatmeal-colored boards (a few volumes lightly foxed), printed spine labels, top edges gilt. TWENTY OF THE VOLUMES RETAIN THEIR ORIGINAL DUST JACKETS (DJs mostly in splendid, complete, untouched condition, only one chipped). An unusually fresh set, most volumes likely unread. There is very little wear amongst the three volumes that lack jackets. The missing Volume (number 17) is unfortunate (especially for us as this set otherwise would be valued at more than $10,000). As of this writing, we've been unable to locate a replacement and consequently have priced this item at a third of the set's value. Needless to say, we are on the lookout daily for Volume 17 but you have the opportunity until then to acquire this set at a rock bottom price. It always seems surprising that Doyle's full writings were never collected during his life and lucky indeed that this signed set managed to be arranged and printed less than a year before the author passed away. This set is rarely encountered today in commerce and those few that can be found generally are rebound or lack the dust jackets. A prize for the Doyle/Sherlock collector.. Signed by Author. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        Early 20th Century Photo Album Depicting Mostly Connecticut Bridges in Their Various States of Construction

      Original cloth. Very Good +. Very impressive early 20th century album (possibly 1930-31) of over 100 original mounted photographs depicting local bridges in various states of construction. Most of the black-and-white photographs are 3 1/2"x5 1/2". The album, an oblong octavo, is string-tied in its olive-green cloth. Most of the photos appear to focus on Connecticut bridges and the album was probably compiled by H.C. Orr, the Resident Engineer of Cornwall Bridge, CT. (A tipped-in May 1930 letter to him from the Commissioner of the CT Highway Department strongly suggests so). Also includes interesting ephemera discussing some of the most prominent bridge buiders of the day and some of the earliest covered bridges built in CT, such as the Lewis Bridge and the Hart Bridge (now known as the Cornwall and West Cornwall Bridges respectively). Also discusses the much-loved covered bridge in Kent, built in 1858 over the Housatonic River, and covered bridges in Ansonia (also spanning the Housatonic) and Seymour.

        BEAST OR MAN

      Cecil Palmer, London 1930 - Octavo, pp. [1-6] 7-285 [286-288: blank] [note: last leaf is a blank], original orange cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black. First edition. "Adventure romance set in West Africa with a fantastic element, positing the existence of a sort of missing link tribe of gorillas, capable of military organization, led by the offspring of a union between a female gorilla and a human male who was captured as an infant by the gorillas. The story starts off strongly, in the 1880s, with a rather dark, intense narration of the arrival of a fanatical English missionary intent on spreading the gospel but careless of the welfare of his young wife and infant son. The parents are killed and the boy is captured by the gorillas. The story then skips ahead to the present day and falls into well-worn grooves of popular adventure fiction, as an idle millionaire (John Passinger) teams up with a renowned hunter/trapper (Dick Fearless) to have some fun and trap a gorilla or two. They get more than they bargained for, and much blood, both human and gorilla, is spilt, but the missionary's half-breed grandson redeems things at the end by saving the life of Passinger's child at the cost of his own." - Robert Eldridge. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 147 and A Spectrum of Fantasy Volume II, p. 145. Bleiler (1978), p. 129. Reginald 07926. Angenot and Khouri, "An International Bibliography of Prehistoric Fiction," SFS, VIII (March 1981), 51. Slight spine lean, a bright, nearly fine copy in fair pictorial 7/6 dust jacket (illustrated by Beresford Egan) with wear at edges, 30 mm chip from upper spine end, and closed tears along folds, separated along rear spine fold. Uncommon in jacket. (#148769) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Description: 16 pp. , original stitched printed wrappers, light dust-soiling, slim 8vo - the offprints of this work, (first published in the Quarterly Review) , these are highly collectible 1930s forgeries as proved by Selwyn Goodacre in 1978 - see Handbook, p. 86.

        THE WOLF'S BRIDE: A TALE FROM ESTONIA ... Translated from the Finnish by Alex Matson in collaboration with Bryan Rhys

      London: Jonathan Cape, [1930].. Octavo, pp. [1-8] 9-114 [115] [116: blank], original blue-gray patterned boards, spine stamped in gold, publisher's device stamped in blind on rear panel, bottom edge untrimmed. First edition. Although there is no printed dedication in the book, this copy is the dedication copy with a signed inscription by Kallas to British author Edward Garnett on the half title page: "To / Edward Garnett / from / Aino Kallas." Accompanied by two handwritten letters from Kallas to Garnett, the first, dated 15 November 1929, asking for Garnett's permission to dedicate the English translation to him, the second, dated 28 February 1930, an anguished letter saying she had just received the first copies and Cape had not printed the dedication to Garnett in the book. A novel of lycanthropy unaccountably dropped from the 1978 Bleiler Checklist. Although herself a Finn, Kallas wrote mainly about her husband's country, Estonia. These two countries, together with Hungary, belong to the Finno-Ugric language group, a linguistic anomaly unrelated to the Indo-European family. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1767. Bleiler (1948), p. 166. Reginald 08046. A fine copy in very good dust jacket with mild wear at edges, tanned spine panel, and general dust soiling. Bookplate of David Garnett on the front paste-down.

The author's exceptionally uncommon fourth book, and considered the finest of her "Ohio" novels.

For forty years she was a valued jewel of the New York literary world and if you read her books it's easy to see why. .

        Photograph album documenting a Marine's life while stationed in pre-World War II Guam

      San Diego and Guam. Album. Very good. This 5.5" x 8" album contains over 40 pages filled with approximately 160 photographs ranging in size from 2" x 3" to 3.5" to 5.75". All of the photographs are attached with mounting corners. Most are captioned on the page in white ink which is faint but legible. The front of the album features a somewhat faded gilt Eagle, Globe, and Anchor (EGA) logo with "U. S. Marines" below. The photographs, pages, and album are all in nice shape. Most of the images are of Guam, although several show Marines at and views of Hawaii including a nice image of derricks at the Los Angeles oil field, and a couple of the transport ship, U.S.S. Henderson. The Guam images include: 1) Piti, Apra Harbor, and other scenes of Guam including beaches, thatch buildings, water buffalo, an outrigger canoe, and a rare snowstorm, 2) Attractive Guamanian women, 3) Commercial and military vessels including the Asiatic Fleet, 4) Marines (parades, individuals, etc.) and Marine facilities (barracks, tent camps, etc.), 5) An identified Marine driving an official staff car with an EGA logo on the door, 6) Marine aircraft in flight (They appear to be Curtis HS-2L Flying Boats and a Curtis SOC-1 Observation Seaplane.), 7) A Marine artillery battery firing a celebratory salute for Memorial Day, 1930, and using the same guns during beachfront training (The appear to be French-made Model 1897 75 mm Model 1897 field guns.) 8) A bivouac and convoy with trucks and a 10-Ton Artillery Tractor, 10) and more. A scarce and very nice visual record of U. S. Marine Corps life in the Pacific in the years between the World Wars.

        MAYAKOVSKY IN FRENCH] Mayakovsky po frantsuzski: 4 poemy / Perevod Andreia Gippiusa [i.e. Mayakovsky in French / Translated by Andrey Gippius]

      Published by the translator, Moscow 1930 - [2], 46 leaves. 23x19 cm. Original front cover is preserved, spine and rear cover of modern paper. Some light restoration to the front cover, lacking staples so leaves are not bound, some soiling, previous owner's pencil drawing on the last page and corrections in the text. Otherwise good. One of 150 copies. Extremely rare. The cover (in Russian) and text (in French) were handwritten by the translator and lithographed on glass to rectos only. Overall 4 poems: For the Voice, Six Monks, Christopher Columbus, Left March. This edition is made in a tradition of Russian futurist books - hand-lithographed manuscripts and handwritten hectograph publications. Unlike the expensive and elevated art books, futurist books were 'rough, cheap, small, load out and inside'. A lot of them were made by Aleksei Kruchionykh (1886-1968), regarded by many as the father of Russian futurism. He was 'a kind of a chronicler of the futurists' and quite a number of his works were illustrated by famous artists such as Goncharova, Rodchenko, Rozanova, Malevich, et al. The only cheaper books were the popular series aimed at the lowest social classes. By putting such low prices on their works (50 kopecks versus ten rubles for a typical livre d'artiste) futurists were able to create an audience, mostly of students. Mayakovsky was one of the futurists and was among authors of the first futurist manifestos. However taking a lot from futurism Mayakovsky went far away from it and created his own unique style. This book published the year Mayakovsky died is interesting because it builds a bridge between the poet and Parisian avant-garde of 1920s for which he never had affection, but it was Paris where a lot of his former comrades from 1910s worked. In this light the figure of Andrey Gippius who is responsible for the production of this book seems curious. We don't know anything about him and it's unclear who the audience for this edition was supposed to be. No copies at the Worldcat. [Attributes: First Edition]

Das unheilvolle, pseudowissenschaftliche Buch fand zunächst wenig Beachtung, erst nach Beginn der nationalsozialistischen Herrschaft erzielte es trotz seines verquasten Stils eine Auflage von über 1,3 Millionen Exemplaren. 1934-37 erschien eine Fülle von Gegenschriften vor allem theologischer Autoren, die sich mit Rosenbergs Antisemitismus und den Bestrebungen zur Abschaffung des Christentums auseinandersetzten und dem Verfasser zahllose Mißverständnisse und Fehler nachweisen konnten. Mit kleinem Namensstempel und privater Geschenkwidmung von 1931, sonst gut erhaltenes Exemplar mit nur leichten Gebrauchsspuren. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

      , [circa 1930]. [circa 1930]. First Edition. Very good. Original paper envelope, measuring 11.5" x 16.5" approx. Printed titles and Suess illustrations at front and character descriptions at rear, containing puzzle, measuring 11.25" x 17" approx. total, comprized of 150 pieces chromolithographed on card. Fully collated. Puzzle generally fine. Envelope toned and creased throughout with several small holes at edges. An attractive example of Theodor Geisel's work as a commercial artist, predating his carreer as a children's book author. This puzzle, one of many notable advertising designs Geisel produced as a part of his longstanding contract with Standard Oil, is a scene showing Essolube defeating the five "Moto Monsters," a cast of characters symbolizing the perils of using poor quality motor oil. Signed Dr. Seuss, the puzzle shows elements of the illustrator's style that would later become key components in the the author's iconic childrens books.

        Photograph album documenting a Marine's life while stationed in pre-World War II Guam

      San Diego and Guam. Album. Very good. This 5.5" x 8" album contains over 40 pages filled with approximately 160 photographs ranging in size from 2" x 3" to 3.5" to 5.75". All of the photographs are attached with mounting corners. Most are captioned on the page in white ink which is faint but legible. The front of the album features a somewhat faded gilt Eagle, Globe, and Anchor (EGA) logo with "U. S. Marines" below. The photographs, pages, and album are all in nice shape. Most of the images are of Guam, although several show Marines at and views of Hawaii including a nice image of derricks at the Los Angeles oil field, and a couple of the transport ship, U.S.S. Henderson. The Guam images include: 1) Piti, Apra Harbor, and other scenes of Guam including beaches, thatch buildings, water buffalo, an outrigger canoe, and a rare snowstorm, 2) Attractive Guamanian women, 3) Commercial and military vessels including the Asiatic Fleet, 4) Marines (parades, individuals, etc.) and Marine facilities (barracks, tent camps, etc.), 5) An identified Marine driving an official staff car with an EGA logo on the door, 6) Marine aircraft in flight (They appear to be Curtis HS-2L Flying Boats and a Curtis SOC-1 Observation Seaplane.), 7) A Marine artillery battery firing a celebratory salute for Memorial Day, 1930, and using the same guns during beachfront training (The appear to be French-made Model 1897 75 mm Model 1897 field guns.) 8) A bivouac and convoy with trucks and a 10-Ton Artillery Tractor, 10) and more. A scarce and very nice visual record of U. S. Marine Corps life in the Pacific in the years between the World Wars.
