        In Memoriam by Alfred Lord Tennyson

      London: Nonesuch Press, 1930.. Tall 8vo., bound in the 1980s in suede and calf painted with green paint and with inlaid sculpted leather pieces, on the back is a pendulum made from silver cord and black painted leather and there is a gilt dot on each cover, the fore edges are painted grey and black, the inside covers are in full black morocco with a large cross tooled on each of them, signed with Sellars's monogram on the lover turnin. In an extraordinary sculptural box of two glass sides framed in black which slot into a black stand, the material is leather pieces glued together, formed and then varnished. The box has caused a very slight rubbing to the spine but this is generally in extremely good condition. A remarkable achievement, executed by Sellars in the early 1980s. The binding suits the book well with more than a whiff of High Victorian mourning.

        Collection Decors et Couleurs. Album No. 1

      1930. VALMIER, Georges. Collection Decors et Couleurs. Album No. 1. Illustrated with 20 pochoir plates. Folio, 440 x 344 mm, issued loose in original tan portfolio, pochoir title on front board, with ties. Original tissue guards present. Paris: Aux Editions Albert Levy, 1930. One of 100 copies. A perfect copy of this Art Deco port-folio of brightly coloured pochoir plates designed by the French painter Georges Valmier. The coloured plates present multiple patterns for a particular colour scheme. These patterns served as Art Deco designs for wallpaper and textiles. Georges Valmier (1885-1937) was an accomplished artist influenced by several of the major artistic movements at the turn of the century, especially Cubism. This becomes clear in the present portfolio which includes, amongst others, a Cubist rendering of a guitar. The colours in this publication are especially vibrant; Valmier's designs were printed by Jean Saudé, a master of the pochoir process. Saudé was the greatest exponent of the art of pochoir or stencil printing, and his name is associated with nearly all of the important Art Deco books issued in France. Complete copies of this portfolio are rare as most have been segmented by the print trade.

        A Treatise On Money: In Two Volumes.

      Harcourt, Brace & Company, New York 1930 - First American editions of each volume. Octavo, two volumes, original cloth. Each volume is fine in the original dust jackets which have had some professional restoration. "In 1930, Keynes brought out his heavy, two-volume Treatise on Money, which effectively set out his Wicksellian theory of the credit cycle. In it, the rudiments of a liquidity preference theory of interest are laid out and Keynes believed it would be his magnum opus[however, criticism was swift and extreme] and the Treatise led to the formation of a reading group, known as ‘the circus,’ composed of young Cambridge economists Richard Kahn and others Kahn dutifully delivered reports of the Circus’s discussions to Keynes, who subsequently began revising his ideas. One resulting criticism of the Treatise was that it failed to provide a theory of the determination of output and employment as a whole— a particular pertinent question given the huge amount of unemployment at the time" (History of Economic Thought).

Neat inked non-authorial gift inscription on the front fly leaf, else a fine, bright copy in a price-clipped dust jacket with two small rubs to the front panel and a tiny chip to the bottom edge of the front cover. "A man is being murdered at 16 Caithness Road, is the cryptic message received by the Commissioner of the C. I. D. in an envelope postmarked HAMMERSMITH. Inspector Bull traveled to 16 Caithness Road and found a man who had just died, but the doctor said his death was caused by tetanus. A curious fact uncovered by the Inspector was that the dead man's father had been killed quite recently in a bus accident and that his daughter had been present at both events. From this beginning, two more murders and a series of robberies occur before the criminal is finally captured while preparing to commit the most terrible murder of all. An early Crime Club and Haycraft/Queen title. Interestingly this dust jacket appears in full color in the middle of Ellen Nehr's "Doubleday Crime Club Compendium 1928-1991," reserved for a showing of Crime Club vintage dust jackets.

Illustrated throughout by Rockwell Kent. An excellent set, largely unopened; included is a Rockwell Kent postage stamp, an original proof for one of the illustrations, and a Moby Dick six cent first day postal cover First Rockwell Kent edition, limited to 1,000 sets.

Rockwell Kent 1930"; and with the discreet book stamp of Lynn Prasse Bittel in each volume. 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.

        MOBY-DICK OR THE WHALE

      The Lakeside Press, Chicago 1930 - 301 x 217 mm (11 3/4 x 8 1/2"). Three volumes. ONE OF 1,000 COPIES. Original publisher's black cloth decorated and titled in silver, one quarter of the leaves UNOPENED. Housed in fine later dark blue folding cloth box. With more than 250 large and small woodcut illustrations by Rockwell Kent. "The Artist and the Book" 140; Lewis, p. 145; Zigrosser, p. 62. Backstrips slightly and evenly sunned, tiny signs of wear at top of the spines of first two volumes, negligible to light illustration offset, otherwise a very fine copy, the cloth entirely clean, and with no signs of internal use. Not considering the missing aluminum slipcase, this is a beautiful copy of one of the handful of great American illustrated books of the last 100 years. In "The 20th Century Book," John Lewis calls Kent's "Moby Dick" nothing short of "a stupendous piece of illustration." Lewis says that "there is a mystic streak that runs through [Kent's] work, enabling him, if not to match Melville's magnificent prose, at least to give some pictorial substance to this allegory." A painter and illustrator with transcendentalist and mystical tendencies, Rockwell Kent (1882-1971) spent much of his career liiving in, visiting, and producing images of rural or remote locations. His paintings of Maine, Alaska, Newfoundland, and Tierra del Fuego helped establish a reputation sufficient to encourage the publisher R. R. Donnelley to approach Kent in 1926 with the request to illustrate an edition of Richard Henry Dana's "Two Years Before the Mast." Kent suggested "Moby Dick" instead, the publisher wisely agreed, and when our limited edition appeared, it sold out immediately (a Random House trade edition was also very well received). Although certainly not obscure, "Moby Dick" was surprisingly less well known at the time of our publication than it is today, and the popularity of the Kent illustrated edition was significant in reinforcing the novel as the classic it is now considered. Because this copy lacks the original aluminum slipcase, it has one obvious shortcoming, but as an extremely well-preserved unopened copy, it is intended to represent a bargain at the price we've set.

        ORIGINAL 1930 TYPED LETTER, SIGNED (re: The Maltese Falcon, The Glass Key & The Thin Man)

      1930. Hammett, Dashiell. ONE PAGE TYPED LETTER, SIGNED ["Sincerely, Dashiell Hammett"]. 135 East 38th Street, New York, April 21st, 1930. Highly desirable unpublished early letter from one of Hammett's most creatively fruitful years in which he makes mention of all three of his greatest novels. To "Dear Mr. Hammett" (no relation despite the shared surname), it reads: "Thanks a lot for the latest of your always kind notes. The Falcon seems to be going over pretty well and I think Earl Boothe's going to produce it on the stage in the Fall if I can get time off from the current book to do the dramatization. The next book, 'The Glass Key' is scheduled for publication in September or October, and then 'The Thin Man' and 'The Darkened Face' in February and August, 1931. Beyond that deponent saith not. Best of luck to you with the poetry and otherwise." The letter, written only two months after the book publication of THE MALTESE FALCON has some irony to it as Dashiell Hammett's precision in rattling off titles and publication dates bore no reality to what came to pass. THE GLASS KEY wouldn't be published until 1931; THE THIN MAN didn't appear until 1934. As for "The Darkened Face" -- there is a fragment of a manuscript with that title at the Harry Ransom Center, University of Texas at Austin. It now appears to have been a planned novel which never came to full fruition. Nor did Hammett write a stage version of THE MALTESE FALCON for Earl Boothe; instead the novel was almost immediately adapted to film, released by Warner Brothers Studios as a pre-code 1931 crime drama full of sexual innuendo starring Ricardo Cortez and Bebe Daniels. The Selected Letters of Dashiell Hammett 1921-1960 (edited by Richard Layman) were indeed "selected from nearly one thousand letters" yet only a mere four letters date - as this letter does -- from 1930, the year Hammett published THE MALTESE FALCON. Apart from two neat folds, the letter is in Fine, crisp condition.. Signed by Author. Fine.
