        My Early Life, a bibliographically unidentified binding variant

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1930. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is the first edition, first printing, of Churchill's extremely popular autobiography. This copy offers an additional enticement to collectors, being a variant binding not noted by bibliographers and among just a small handful of copies we have encountered bound thus. Various states of the first edition, first printing are known. First states were bound in both a coarse and a smooth plum colored cloth, have the title stamped on the front cover in either three or five lines, and contain a list of 11 Churchill titles in the boxed list of "Works by the same Author" on the half-title verso. Second state copies are distinguished by the addition of "THE WORLD CRISIS: 1911-1914" to the boxed list of works on the half-title verso, making 12 titles. It was presumed that all second state copies featured bindings with a five-line title on the front cover. In his excellent bibliography of Churchill's works, Ronald Cohen states: "... most, perhaps even all, copies of the second state will be found in binding cases in which the front cover is stamped in 5, rather than 3, lines..." This unrecorded variant is a first printing, second state copy in the coarse cloth binding with three lines on the front cover. Condition is very good overall. The binding remains tight with vividly bright boards, and little of the customary wear. The lower corners are bumped and the spine moderately sunned, but the spine nonetheless remains nicely rounded with decent color and bright gilt. The contents are respectably bright. Spotting is light for the edition, primarily confined to the prelims and page edges. We find no previous ownership marks. My Early Life covers the years from Churchill's birth in 1874 to his first few years in Parliament. One can hardly ask for more adventurous content. These were momentous and formative years for Churchill, including his time as a war correspondent and cavalry officer in theatres as varied as Cuba, northwest India, and sub-Saharan and southern Africa. This time contained a wide range of experiences in Churchill's life. Not only was he developing as an author, publishing his first books, and making his first lecture tour of North America, but this was also the time of his capture and daring escape during the Boer War, which made him a celebrity and helped launch his political career. Churchill would take his seat in Parliament only weeks after the end of Queen Victoria's reign. My Early Life remains one of the most popular and widely read of all Churchill's books. And for good reason, as the work certainly ranks among the most charming and accessible of his many books. An original 1930 review likened it to a "beaker of Champagne." That effervescent charm endures; a more recent writer called it "a racy, humorous, self-deprecating classic of autobiography." To be sure, Churchill takes some liberties with facts and perhaps unduly lightens or over-simplifies certain events, but this is eminently forgivable and in keeping with the wit, pace, and engaging style that characterizes the book. My Early Life sold very well at the time and has seen a great many editions since, many of them collectible in their own right, but of course a premium attaches to first editions. The challenge for collectors is that the plum colored binding of this edition proved especially susceptible to fading, soiling, and wear; nearly all copies are considerably spine faded. Moreover, the contents are susceptible to heavy spotting and the binding is often cocked. This helps explain why so many first editions of this book have been torn apart and rebound. This original binding is both an interesting variant and in condition superior to many copies we encounter.

When the Dufault family moved to Montreal, he attended a Catholic school and his father ran a hotel, in which the boy heard stories of trappers that he later used to fabricate parts of his Lone Cowboy: My Life Story.Lone Cowboy, his partly faked autobiography, hoodwinked the vast American buying public, and even his wife, and was a 1930 selection of the Book-of-the-Month Club. (Its dishonesty was not exposed until 1967.) Although he wrote eighteen more books, James slowly lost his self-assurance, sense of well-being, and artistic inspiration. He constantly feared being found out as a prevaricating autobiographer." (American National Biography). Howes. Streeter. HBS 67870. $5,000 [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Palestine: Report on Immigration, Land Settlement and Development. By Sir John Hope Simpson, C.I.E. 1930. Presented by the Secretary of State for the Colonies to Parliament by Command of His Majesty. October, 1930.

      Printed and Published by His Majesty's Stationery Office, London, England 1930 - 245 x 155 mm. 185 pages plus a foldout graph attached to rear wrapper. Tear and chip to wrappers. The Report, known as the Hope Simpson Report, following the Hope Simpson Enquiry, was a product of the British commission that Simpson led. It was formed in August 1929, followed the 1929 rioting and pogroms by the Arabs and its conclusion was to be, and was, to limit Jewish Immigration, Land Settlement and Development issues in the British colony of Palestine, known as British Mandatory Palestine, as recommended by the Shaw Commission after the pogroms. The report, dated October 1, 1930, was published October 21, 1930 and it recommended limiting Jewish immigration based on Palestine's alleged economic absorptive capacity. The Passfield White Paper was also dated October 1, 1930, and recommended similar limiting of Jewish immigration. Then, as now, the Arabs were more numerous, had oil, and were not Jews.

        Handbuch der geographischen Wissenschaft. Mit zahlreichen Abbildungen und Karten. 13 Bände.

      Akademische Verlagsgesellschaft Athenaion 1930-1940, Potsdam - Zusammen 6643 Seiten. Großformatige Orig.-Halblederbände (ca. 29 x 23,5 cm) mit je 2 farbigen, goldgeprägten Leder-Rückenschildchen, der letzte Band "Deutsches Reich II" von 1940 wurde kriegsbedingt vom Verlag nur noch als Orig.-Leinenband in sonst gleicher Gestaltung ausgeliefert. Das Werk zieht die Summe des damaligen geographischen Wissens und ist überaus reich mit Fotos, Landkarten, montierten Farbtafeln und gefalteten Kartenbeilagen illustriert. Es erschien in einzelnen Lieferungen, denen der Verlag nach Abschluß der Bände Einbanddecken in blauem Leinen bzw. mit blauem Maroquin-Lederrücken und -ecken folgen ließ (weshalb häufiger un- oder nur teilgebundene Exemplare vorkommen). Aufgrund des langen Erscheinungszeitraums und den emigrationsbedingten Niedergangs des Bürgertums sind vollständig gebundene Exemplare, die auch den erst nach Kriegsbeginn 1940 erschienenen letzten Band umfassen, recht selten. Im einzelnen handelt es sich um folgende Bände: Allgemeine Geographie, Teil I: Physikalische Geographie (1933), Teil 2: Das Leben auf der Erde (1933); Afrika (1930); Australien und Ozeanien, Antarktis (1930); Süd-Amerika (1930); Südost- und Südeuropa (1931), Nord- und Mittelamerika, die Arktis (1933); Mitteleuropa (außer Deutsches Reich), Osteuropa (1935); Vorder- und Südasien (1937); Nordasien, Zentral- und Ostasien (1937); West- und Nordeuropa (1938); Das deutsche Reich I und II (1938-1940). Dank des schweren Kunstdruckpapiers sind die Seiten nicht vergilbt. Wegen des hohen Gewichts der Ausgabe kann eine Lieferung ins Ausland nur gegen erhöhte Versandkosten erfolgen (bitte nachfragen!). 2 Bände mit Unterstreichungen und Randnotizen in Bleistift auf ca. 70 Seiten. Unser Exemplar wie üblich mit schönen roten, aber fast durchgängig verblaßten grünblauen Rückenschildchen sowie einem gleichmäßig verblaßten Lederrücken (Australien), insgesamt handelt es sich jedoch um ein gut erhaltenes, ordentliches und vollständiges Exemplar mit nur leichten Gebrauchsspuren.

        Mon oncle Benjamin. Avec les variantes, une clef des Personnages du roman par Alfred Massé. 12 fac-similés et 184 aquarelles originales par Pierre Paschal.

      Dorbon Aîné, Paris, s.d. (1930) - Dorbon Aîné, Paris, s.d. (1930) 2 volumes in-4 (27,5 x 21,5 cm) de LI-206 et 207 à 442-(1) pages (pagination continue). Reliure plein maroquin châtaigne, dos à nerfs, tête dorée, non rogné, encadrement intérieur de maroquin souligné de trois filets dorés concentriques (reliures signées P. MANNE). Exemplaire à l'état proche du neuf. Quelques légères décharges sur quelques feuillets en regard des aquarelles. Tous les papiers de soie protecteurs sont présents, reliés dans les volumes. Tirage à 520 exemplaires. Celui-ci, 1 des 450 sur papier vélin à la forme de Vincent Montgolfier filigrané au bouquineur (papier spécialement fabriqué pour l'éditeur Dorbon). Les aquarelles au pochoir sont dues à Jacomet. Le roman est constitué par le récit d'un narrateur rapportant quelques épisodes de la vie du frère de sa grand-mère, Benjamin Rathery, qui est donc en réalité son grand-oncle. Le lieu du récit est Clamecy, l'époque est la fin du règne de Louis XV ou le règne de Louis XVI, au moins dix ans après la bataille de Fontenoy. Le narrateur est le fils de Gaspard Machecourt, fils aîné de la sœur de Benjamin et d'un huissier de justice de Clamecy. Âgé de 28 ans, Benjamin Rathery est un médecin peu convaincu, ne voulant pas payer ses dettes, plutôt amateur de bonnes bouteilles, assez cultivé, portant l'épée, célibataire convaincu. Sa sœur, chez qui il vit, cherche à le convaincre de se marier, ce qu'il accepte à la suite d'un incident de beuverie : il a blessé son beau-frère au cours d'une parodie de duel. Le choix se porte sur la fille d'un autre médecin des environs, Minxit. Claude Tillier, né le 11 avril 1801 à Clamecy (Nièvre) et mort le 12 octobre 1844, fut un pamphlétaire et romancier français. Fils d'un serrurier aux maigres ressources, il réussit à suivre des études au lycée de Bourges grâce à une bourse accordée par la ville de Clamecy. Ses classes terminées, la modicité de sa fortune l'oblige à embrasser la profession de maître d'études à Soissons, puis à Paris. Il raconte dans ses mémoires comment « son bouquet de rhétorique au côté, comme un domestique à la Saint-Jean, il alla offrir ses services aux revendeurs de grec et de latin de la capitale ». Il finit par être renvoyé, et, en 1821, il tombe au sort et effectue un service militaire de six ans. À son retour, il est nommé instituteur puis directeur d'école. Parallèlement, il œuvre comme journaliste à L’Indépendant à Clamecy, puis à L’Association, un journal démocratique de Nevers, pour lesquels il écrit aussi des feuilletons. Ses prises de position à l'encontre des notables locaux lui coûtent son poste de directeur à Clamecy. Il meurt d'une maladie de poitrine et repose à Nevers Sobres et élégantes reliures de Paul Manne sur un classique de la littérature nivernaise. Paul Manne (ancien élève de l'École Estienne établi à Paris rue Princesse en 1933, puis rue Mabillon en 1934, décédé en 1981 - Fléty, Dict. des relieurs p. 119) Somptueux exemplaire ayant eu les honneurs de reliures en plein maroquin de qualité.

        1st editions of her first 4 novels, all inscribed to her Uncle; Jig-Saw (1925); Saw Dust (1926); If the Tree Is Saved (1929); For What? (1930)

      Duckworth, London 1930 - 1) Jig-Saw [Duckworth]: 1st edition. Cloth faded, spine soiled and with a tear to the tip, otherwise good condition. Signed presentation copy inscribed, "To Dear Uncle Willie with love from Barbara Cartland, 9-3-25." Armorial bookplate of William Hall; 2) Saw Dust [Duckworth]: 1st edition. Cloth faded, otherwise good. Signed presentation copy inscribed, "To darling Uncle Willie to whom I am indebted for many of the thoughts in this book, and especially for the interest, kindness, and helpful criticism always accorded me. With my best love, Barbara. March 20, 1926." 3) If the Tree Is Saved [Duckworth]: 1st edition. Cloth faded, otherwise good. Signed presentation copy inscribed, "To darling Uncle Willie with love from Barbara." 4) For What? [Hutchinson]: 1st edition. Cloth faded, edges soiled, one spot, else good. Signed presentation copy inscribed, "Uncle Willie with love from Barbara.". Barbara Cartland is the 3rd best selling author of all time (1 billion books), trailing only William Shakespeare and Agatha Christie. Our 4 books are all frustratingly scarce 1st editions, even without their dustjackets, just try and get any one of them. And it is only pretentious and crusty, subject scorning, literary snobbery (romance novels are trash), that prevents them from being 10 times as expensive as they are here, and your odds of finding another inscribed set (chasing the horizon), are lower than the chicken vote for Colonel Sanders, though I suppose you could try saying "Beatlejuice" 3 times, and see if that leads to anything.
