        My Early Life, inscribed in the year of publication by Churchill to his teenage godson, finely bound in a matching clamshell preservation case

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1930. First edition, first printing. Half leather. This is the first edition, first printing, first state of Churchill's autobiography, inscribed by Churchill in the year of publication to his teenage godson. The inscription, inked in black in five lines on the blank endsheet preceding the half-title, reads: "To | Roger Frewen | from | Winston S. Churchill / Dec 1. 1930". We commissioned the binding in full plum calf, evoking the original binding color, with gilt decoration and print, raised spine bands, dark brown title and author panels, gilt top edge, and marbled paper endsheets. Roger Frewen's book plate was carefully recovered from the pastedown of the original binding and re-affixed to the new pastedown and a protective tissue cover was bound in preceding the inscribed page. A matching half-leather clamshell case is executed in the same plum calf as the binding (with marbled paper sides matching the volume's endsheets), leather corners, and the same spine design as the book. Roger d'Hauteville Moreton Frewen (1914-1972) was sixteen when he received this inscribed autobiography from his famous godfather. Roger was the son of Churchill's first cousin, Hugh Frewen, and grandson of Churchill's Aunt Clara, his mother's elder sister. Hugh's childhood was marked by visits with his Churchill and Leslie cousins, including Winston, who was nine years older than Hugh. Roger was born in London during the First World War while his father was serving on the front and Winston was First Lord of the Admiralty. Roger was educated in Switzerland and Cambridge. In 1933, just a few years after he received this inscribed copy, Roger suffered a near-fatal car accident. This and tuberculosis contracted during recovery permanently impaired his health. Nonetheless, Roger joined the Foreign & Commonwealth Office in 1938. Posted to the British Embassy in Berne during WWII, Roger listened to German and Italian military signals and reported information to Britain, drove lorries with military supplies through occupied France, and rescued escaped prisoners of war by crossing into Germany and Italy and bringing them to safety in Switzerland. Driven by income needs as his family grew, in the decades after the war Roger had careers in finance and real estate. Roger's son, Jonathan, from whom this book comes to us, recalls that Roger excelled at mathematics and languages and was "a kind man, an amusing raconteur... and a good Father." Jonathan also recalls that "Winston was an excellent godparent" who "never forgot a birthday or Christmas, no matter his duties." The Frewen collection includes books by Churchill inscribed to his godson spanning the 1930s to the 1950s. An inscribed copy of My Early Life made a fitting gift to a teenage godson. Originally published on 20 October 1930, My Early Life Covers the years spanning Churchill's birth in 1874 to his first few years in Parliament, including his time as an itinerant war correspondent and cavalry officer, his early years as an author, and his capture and daring escape during the Boer War. Churchill took some liberties with facts and perhaps deceptively lightened or over-simplified certain events, but this is forgivably in keeping with the wit, pace, and engaging style that characterize the book. Moreover, Churchill's style and liberties would have done nothing to diminish the book's appeal to his godson. The binding and matching preservation case are pristine. The contents are very good for the edition, with only modest intermittent spotting, mostly confined to the first and final leaves. First state of the first edition is confirmed by 11 titles on the half-title verso boxed list of works by the author. The inscription is modestly age-toned, but remains quite distinct. Some customary transfer from the original front pastedown glue left a faintly ghosted outline of Roger's bookplate just below Churchill's signature.

Housed in a string-tied album, 10.25"x7.25"; old newspaper remnants on boards, internally clean and well-preserved.

Photos there are taken from behind a sandbag barrier on a city street, with guns at the ready as the Sino-Japanese dispute unfolds.

        PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM OF VERNACULAR IMAGES OF RANGOON AND THE COASTAL SEA TRADE, AKYAB, MAWLAMYINE, MYEIK, AND THE SAYA SAN REBELLION, 1930-1933

      1930. Original photograph album. String-tied Boards. Very Good. This interesting album, centered on Burma and the Burmese coasts, contains 238 sepiatone photographs (3.25"x2.5" to 4.5"x2.75"), mounted neatly with photo-corners onto black paper leaves. Housed in string-tied, cloth over boards; edges of boards scuffed, internally clean and tight. 9.75" x 12.5" The photographs in this unusual album were taken by a young marine with the British India Steam Navigation Company, traveling the Irrawaddy River and working the trade routes across the Gulf of Martaban between Yangon, Akyab, Mawlamyine and Myeik in Burma, and also across the Bay of Bengal to Calcutta, Cuddalore and Chennai in India. The images here comprise a first-hand visual chronicle of British trading along Burmese coasts, and also mark the riotous era of the Saya San Rebellion (1930-1932), triggered by anti-colonial and anti-Indian sentiments. Another uncommon feature of the album are scenes of Bangladesh, then part of British India, including the Chittagong Armory, photographed in April, 1930, just after an earlier rebellion--the failed takeover attempt by Indian independence revolutionaries. ~~ Images in the album include: large teak rafts on the Irrawaddy River, conveying coal and live goats; Yangon city seen from the River; elephants working at a timber camp in Moulmein, along with an old pagoda, a young monk, and the quaint town itself; Akyab in Rakhine State; Mergui (Myeik) on the Andaman Sea, with views of the charming viallage and harbor; scenes and people of Calcutta; jute mills on the Hooghly River; Madras (Chennai) where the ship is unloaded by men and women using only baskets; women hard at work in a lumber yard; children fascinated by the foreigner dressed in white; shore leave at the historic Mount Lavinia Hotel in Colombo; views of Penang, Malaysia, and the Port of Victoria in the Seychelles archipelago; photographs of the mariner's daily life aboard ship; native cargo boats coming alongside; Chinese junks; dugout canoes; &c.

      1930. Original photograph album. String-tied Boards. Very Good.

Other war-related images include firing practice, drills, trenching, and tent camps (in Gibraltar?). Also seen are the graves of fallen soldiers and Royal marines at the Hong Kong cemetery, and eight sun-toned photographs of the Suez Canal, the Port Said monument to Ferdinand de Lesseps, &c. ~~ Indigenous life and industry are seen in photographs of Chinese men using small hammers to chisel large stones into pebbles for building roads, in photos of unusual methods of conveyance, in a view of children playing at a riverside lumber yard, in a photograph of a woman with pole baskets--one holding harvested produce, the other holding her infant child, in views of the Great Wall, junks in the harbor, a soldier in a rickshaw, &c., &c. ~~ A memorialized photograph celebrates the HMS Suffolk leaving Shanghai for Hong Kong on 1 October 1932, after this lengthy patrol to Shanghai and the Yangtze delta.

        The Savoy Cocktail Book

      London: Constable, 1930. Signed Limited edition, published simultaneously to the first trade edition. Signed by Harry Craddock, this being number 230. Octavo, original half cloth, pictorial endpapers. Illustrations by Gilbert Rumbold. In near fine condition. Uncommon. Savoy Cocktail Book features 750 of Harry Craddock's most popular recipes. It is a fascinating record of the cocktails that set London alight at the time—and which are just as popular today. From Slings to Smashes, Fizzes to Flips, and featuring art deco illustrations, Harry Craddock was "the king of cocktail shakers," and The Savoy Cocktail Books contains humorous anecdotes on the origin of the cocktail and its purpose ("for the solace of man"), as well as "an elucidation of the Manners and Customs of people of quality in a period of some equality." "Behind every great bartender (literally) is a roughed-up, stained copy of The Savoy Cocktail Book...it's been an industry must-have since its first edition" (GQ).

        MEDICI

      London: John Murray, 1930. 2 volumes. An early printing, with the January, 1930 imprint, but using the original English sheets. With over 100 illustrations from numerous sources on finely produced black and white plates, and with 2 folding genealogical charts.

AN IMPORTANT TEXT IN EXCELLENT SIGNED BINDINGS BY BAYNTUN-RIVIERE OF BATH, one of the most important bookbinding companies of the 19th and 20th centuries, famous for their materials and tooling used in binding. The elegance of the bindings is especially fitting to the subject. This is considered the foremost biography of the Medicis, and is the first history of the whole family, rather than one dealing with only the very famous or infamous members. Leaders of the city-states of Italy, they were merchants, warriors and patrons of some of the most famous and influential artists of all time. The powerful Medici family shaped not only the history of Italy, but the history of the world. They lie at the very center of all cause to the flowering of the Renaissance.
