        The Edge of the Unknown

      John Murray, London, 1930., 1930. First Edition. SCARCE- only 909 copies were published. 8vo, pps. (vii) +332. A fine copy in gilt titled dark blue cloth clad in a very good, clean dustwrapper with some slight chipping and trivial loss to the extremities. A very pretty copy of Doyle's collection of spiritualist essays, including not only the fabulous posthumous meanderings of Oscar Wilde ("I was the medium through which beauty filtered...") but also the original laid in publisher's four page Doyle catalogue citing the author as "a good nourisher of Englishmen." High praise indeed. A collection of weird and wonderful supernatural tales and stories of a spiritualist nature reappearing in this first book form edition, some having previously materialised in periodicals. Includes 'Notes From a Strange Mail Bag', 'The Ghost of the Moat', 'Dwellers on the Border', 'A Strange Prophet' and 'A Rift in the Veil'. When his son Kingsley died from wounds incurred in the Great War, Conan Doyle dedicated himself to spiritualistic studies; both 'The Coming of Fairies' (1922) and 'The Edge of the Unknown' (1930) are examples, but he had already showed interest in supernatural fantasy before publishing the Sherlockian stories; in his early novel, 'The Mystery of Cloomber'(1888), a retired general finds himself under assault by Indian magic.

        Redimiculum Matellarum

      Milan: [For the author], 1930. Octavo. Single quire, wire stitched in laid paper wrappers printed in black and orange. Housed in a black flat-back cloth solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. A few nicks and marks to the wrappers but an excellent copy. First and only edition of the author's rare first book. With the author's signed presentation inscription to the first leaf, "To T. W. Earp from Basil Bunting 1930" The recipient was a poet and noted translator who had been a contemporary of Tolkien's at Oxford and who with Dorothy L Sayers had edited the Oxford Poetry annual for 1918. Despite these and numerous other literary achievements Earp was forever immortalised as the etymological progenitor of the slang word Twerp as defined in the OED. Privately printed in Milan and one of the true rarities of 20th century poetry. A letter exists in which Bunting recalls there having only been some 150 copies printed. In our experience such a small number seems likely since very few copies have ever been offered for sale.

        Moby Dick or The Whale

      Chicago: The Lakeside Press,, 1930. Illustrated by Rockwell Kent. 3 volumes, quarto. Original black cloth, decoration to the upper boards and titles to spines in silver, top edges stained black, others uncut. In the original acetate dust jackets with paper flaps. With the aluminium slipcase. Illustrated throughout by Rockwell Kent. From the library of the hi-fi audio pioneer Saul B. Marantz (1911-1997), with presentation inscription on the front free endpaper of volume I. Spine very lightly sunned, light offsetting from illustrations to facing pages (as usual). An excellent set. First Rockwell Kent edition, limited to 1,000 sets; one of the finest editions of Melville's masterpiece and one of the great American illustrated books of the 20th century. In 1926 Rockwell Kent (1882?-1971), then just beginning to establish his fame as an artist, was approached by R. R. Donnelley and Sons to illustrate a new edition of Richard Henry Dana's Two Years Before the Mast. Kent demurred, suggesting Moby Dick instead. Kent was given complete freedom to design and illustrate the three-volume set. The resulting work has been hailed as a masterpiece of 20th-century book illustration and credited with reviving public interest in a sublime but difficult novel.

      Seattle and Chicago, [ca. 1930's]. Very good +. 34 black and white photographs of various sizes, measuring from approximately 9 3/4" x 6 1/2" to 7.0" x 5.0", adhesive mounted recto only to 31 loose, stiff card pages. Additional page lacking photos, but with a detailed, autograph description by the photographer: "Set of photographs taken in a single day on flight from Seattle Bay 8am to Chicago arriving late evening during early 1930's on Lockheed. Picture taken thru the window with one of the first Leica's in this country. Brought me from Germany by Tom Morgan. Some of these were later displayed by Northwest Air Lines. A set of enlargements kind like these was presented to the President of Northwest Air Lines. Robert B. Lea. Bundled Dec. 1952." Instances of handling wear, rubbing to images, otherwise clean, well preserved, generally very good+ or better. An artful set of photographs elegantly documenting (entirely from the air) a single plane flight from Seattle to Chicago. Robert Lea was an executive with Sperry Gyroscope Company, which provided guidance and navigation equipment to numerous aircraft industry companies, including Lockheed. An evocative and beautiful series - mainly of landscapes, but some of towns below - taken with a classic camera.
