        My Early Life, a variant binding unknown to bibliographers

      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 only the second copy 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 approaches very good overall. The binding remains tight with sharp corners, vividly bright boards, and little of the customary wear. The chief detraction is both sunning and some mottling to the spine color. The contents remain respectably bright with light spotting primarily confined to prelims and page edges. 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.

        Silhouetten und Verse. Der Liebe und Freundschaft gewidmet

      Gebr. Klingspor, Offenbach am Main 1930 - Oblong 32mo. 24pp., frenchfold. Illustrated with elegant silhouettes of men and women dressed in the height of fashion, each framed by a colorful border. Facing each silhouette or pair of silhouettes is a passage of German verse. This particular copy is specially bound as a gift for Hugo Steiner-Prag's fiftieth birthday. Bound in pink silk, with a hand-painted and gilt-stamped "50" to the upper cover. Housed in a box decorated with patterned paper. A printed sheet is laid in to the box with the dedication to Steiner-Prag from Karl Klingspor, dated December 12, 1930. Both Klingspor and Steiner-Prag moved in the same circles of German book design and production in the early nineteenth century. Klingspor, together with his brother Wilhelm, operated the Klingspor typefoundry in Offenbach am Main. Steiner-Prag was an illustrator and designer, serving as a professor of graphics at the Staatlichen Akademie für Graphische Künste und Buchgewerbe in Leipzig from 1907 to 1933. He also designed three typefaces, including the self-named Steiner-Prag-Schrift. This pretty item, pairing the finely detailed silhouettes and the traditional Gothic type, is therefore a fitting gift for the designer. Hinges on box starting, else fine. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        On Being Ill.

      London: The Hogarth Press,, 1930. Octavo. Original vellum-backed blue cloth boards, gilt titles to spine, marbled endpapers. Vellum spine faintly soiled, faint marks to cloth. An excellent copy. First edition, first impression; one of a limited 250 copies signed by the author, this one numbered "Out of Series" in Woolf's hand. From the library of the prominent composer, memoirist and suffragette Ethel Smyth, who first met Woolf in February 1930; she had just read A Room of One's Own, and hunted down its author as a potential fighter for the suffragette cause. This was the beginning of a close and complex friendship that would exert an immense influence on the lives of both women; Smyth, a rambunctious septuagenarian, and the younger Woolf, a slight and subtle-minded genius, were fixed in a state of mutual awe. In a letter dated Oct 12 1940, Woolf recounted to Smyth her memory of how at a concert in November 1919, long before they ever met, she had first seen her, "coming bustling down the gangway at the Wigmore Hall, in tweeds and spats, a little cock's feather in your felt, and a general look of angry energy, so that I said, 'That's Ethel Smyth!' ? and felt, being then a mere chit, she belongs to the great achieved public world, where I'm a nonentity. You reminded me of a ptarmigan ? those speckled birds with fetlocks." As for Smyth, she soon fell madly in love with Virginia Woolf, who wrote to Quentin Bell (resorting again to an animal comparison), "It is like being caught by a giant crab". In spite of this initial awkwardness, Woolf respected and loved Smyth for her honesty and robustness, and when Smyth's passion calmed, (though it never cooled) the two developed a deep friendship, and in their letters they frankly discussed everything from religion and culture to masturbation and suicide. Smyth was the inspiration for the character Miss La Trobe in Woolf's Between the Acts, and their ardent discussions about the relationship between literature and music no doubt had an influence upon The Waves. The Years, also, has a Smythean origin, as it derived its inspiration in part from speeches made in 1931 by both Woolf and Smyth at the London National Society for Women's Service, on the subject of professions for women. Ethel Smyth outlived the much younger Virginia, at whose death, when asked by Raymond Mortimer for a comment, she mournfully refused, "I had to say I couldn't, touched as I was by his suggesting it. Later perhaps - but my god not now. You see it was not only that I loved her; it was that my life [was] literally based on her.

First printing in original 1st issue Modern Library DJ with 170 books listed in the Modern Library Collection on rear of DJ. DJ price of 95 cents intact on DJ flap. DJ artwork is by Wuyts. Book is beautiful. Binding and hinges are strong. Flexi-cloth panels are clean with sharp corners. On February 25th, 1930, the Modern Library printed their First Edition of this title. The first ML edition was offered in a choice of 4 hues without preference to which of the 4 colors came first. Red, Blue, Green and Maroon. Cloth color would in turn dictate the corresponding illustrative endpaper color as well as the topstain color. In my experience, Maroon seems to be the least common color. Original first issue DJ shows rubbing/wrinkle along edges with shallow chipping. DJ shows professional reinforcement on interior. Front flap fold of DJ is cracked along crease but sits snug in place. An excellent copy of the 1st ML edition, 1st printing in original, corresponding 1st issue DJ with 170 books listed in the ML series up to that point.

      N.p., 1930. Twelve 8-1/2 x 11 inch sheets, all but one written on both sides in pencil in Frost's beautifully legible hand. 1 vols. Old folds, else fine. Custom half morocco slipcase. Frost, John. Twelve 8-1/2 x 11 inch sheets, all but one written on both sides in pencil in Frost's beautifully legible hand. 1 vols. A fascinating and frequently moving group of letters, in which Frost discusses his work ("I just finished a canvas from memory of that Maryland country...Everything I've done up to this has been a flop as I've been pressing and overworking--but I think I've gotten hold of the thing again...That woodcock stuff is God Awful hard to do, hard not to get it all broken up and cluttered with detail"), his personal problems ("I have certainly been taking no care of myself for years--jacking myself up with liquor to keep going for heaven knows how long"), business matters concerning his work for The Sportsman magazine and others ("If it costs more to make a single plate and if you can get the Woodcock and Sportsman [to] agree to that program tell them to take the cost of printing out of what they were to pay for the use of the originals"), and makes occasional references to his famous father ("Do you remember Dad's old fishing 'comic' "How did you come to fall in?" "I didn't come to fall in, I came to fish"). In 1934, Frost painted an oil on commision by Connett, entitled Maryland Marsh, printed as a sporting aquatint by the Derrydale Press in 1936. Frost, who notes in these letters his concern that his tuberculosis had flared up again, died in 1937. A UNIQUE AND SPECIAL CORRESPONDENCE. From the collection of Eugene V. Connett, III, proprietor of The Derrydale Press, with his pencilled note: "These letters are from John Frost, son of A.B. Frost, and my dear friend. EVC"

        THE BRIDGE.

      New York: Horace Liveright. 1930 - Hart Crane. THE BRIDGE. Published in New York by Horace Liveright in 1930. Frontispiece photograph of the Brooklyn Bridge by Walker Evans. The book is fine in dark blue cloth with bright gilt lettering and design on the front cover and spine. The text is crisp and unmarked. The beautifully designed dust jacket has no restoration and is not price-clipped. As such it is a splendid survival with the Walker Evans photo on the front panel. The rear panel has blurbs by Eugene O'Neill, Waldo Frank, and Edmund Wilson for Hart Crane's first book, White Buildings. There is some very minor chipping along with the slightest edge wear. This is the first American and first trade edition of this remarkable book-length poem. A slightly different earlier version was published in February 1930 in a very limited edition by Harry Crosby's Black Sun Press in Paris which contained three Walker Evans photographs.

        The Kindred Called The Kibbo Kift has Something to Say To You in Original leather case.

      Kibbo Kift, London 1930 - The Kindred Called The Kibbo Kift has Something to Say To You. Original hard card 4pp. calling card extolling the Economic Runneymede in Original leather case. Stained. The organisation was founded by the charismatic Englishman John Hargrave (aka 'White Fox'), artist, author and Boy Scout Commissioner for Woodcraft and Camping, who had become disenchanted with the increasingly militaristic tendency in the Scout movement after World War I. Hargrave was promptly expelled from the Scouts by Scout founder Robert Baden-Powell. With a small group of like-minded, dissident, anti-war Scoutmasters and Scoutmistresses under his own direct leadership, he set about building an alternative and very different movement. Baden-Powell expelled Hargrave with extreme reluctance, and only after some wealthy backers had threatened to withdraw funding from the Scouts unless he was expelled. The Kibbo Kift (archaic Kentish dialect for 'proof of great strength'[2]) has been described as 'the only genuine English national movement of modern times' and was certainly very different from Baden-Powell's Boy Scouts. Based on the woodcraft principles of naturalist Ernest Thompson Seton that had been a key part of the early Scout programme, the Kibbo Kift was to be not merely a youth organisation but was to involve all ages and, very daring for the times, it was open to both sexes. The ideas of world peace and the regeneration of urban man through the open-air life replaced the nationalism and militarism Hargrave had detested in the post-World War I Scouts. Kinsmen and women were organised in Clans, Tribes and Lodges. Each individual took a 'woodcraft name', inspired by their ideas of 'Indian-style' names. The correct costume had to be hand-made by each individual or 'rooftree' (family group) and while the everyday 'habit' of Saxon hood, jerkin, shorts and long cloak must have seemed outlandish enough in the English countryside of the early 1920s; for ceremonial occasions, brilliantly coloured surcoats or silk-embroidered robes were worn by the various office-holders such as the Tallykeeper, Campswarden, Ritesmaster and Gleeman. Hargrave himself was 'Head Man' and his leadership was dynamic, inspirational and frankly autocratic. The Mark of the Kindred of the Kibbo Kift is typical of the symbolism that can be seen in many of their designs. Its meaning is: Worship (The K sign) Forever (the Circle of Unity and Eternity) Life (the Flame) through Knowledge (the Tree). Or again, ‘Worship Life Forever with Knowledge’. The Kibbo Kift's central activities of hiking and camping were refined and elevated to the level of a spiritual exercise. The weekend 'Tribal' Camps and the great annual 'Althing' were marked by colourful and impressive ritual, inspired by their ideas of what Native American ceremonies might be like, but couched in language reminiscent of the Norse Sagas and rich in Saxon archaisms. Kinsmen were not only required to make their own lightweight, one-man hiking tents (the first seen in England) but to decorate them with vivid, symbolic designs of their own devising. Influenced by Hargrave's own artistic taste, an ultra-modern 'futurist' style of design became general, and the robes, regalia, tents and other items of decorative art, often of an extremely high standard, represent an extraordinary 'democratisation' of the avant-garde art of the day. The Kibbo Kift were never more than a few hundred strong. Kinsmen and Kinswomen included the Suffragettes Emmeline Pethick Lawrence, Mary Neal and May Billinghurst, the journalist Henry Nevinson, the photographer Angus McBean, and Ruth Clark. The Advisory Committee included Havelock Ellis, Maurice Maeterlinck, the Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore, H. G. Wells and Professor Julian Huxley. D. H. Lawrence took an interest in the Kindred and it has been suggested that Mellors in Lady Chatterley's Lover is based on an archetypal Kinsman. The growth of the Kibbo Kift was not without its setbacks. In 1924, the South L [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        La SCIERIE du couvent de la grande chartreuse.

      1930Très belle aquarelle originale en couleurs, encadrée sous passe partout gris , cadre noir.aquarelle signée et datée en bas à gauche. " J. Drevet. 1930 "dimensions : 205 mm x 305 mm. sous cadre : 400 mm x 500 mm . Très beau et rare document , exécuté à l'aquarelle alors que Joannès Drevet , graveur et aquafortiste lyonnais avait 76 ans. Joannès Drevet. ( père de Joanny Drevet ) . Né à Lyon en 1854, il y est mort en 1940. Il a très largement représenté sa ville natale, en particulier dans ce monument qu'est Le Lyon de nos pères, d'Emmanuel Vingtrinier, ouvrage, qui malgré le côté souvent très sombre des illustrations est très recherché. Mais il est une autre facette du personnage, que l'on ne connaît pas , c'est celle de l'aquarelliste qui a peint de nombreux paysage du Lyonnais, du Dauphiné et des Alpes . ( un ouvrage sur cette partie méconnue de son oeuvre , a été publié en 1935 , sous le titre " Souvenirs " , à seulement 40 exemplaires , avec de nombreuses reproductions couleurs de ses aquarelles ). Cette facette est largement plus lumineuse et plus joyeuse que celle du graveur. Le style de cette aquarelle nous le prouve aisément . C'est un ravissement de fraîcheur et de spontanéité.
