        Moby Dick: Or, the Whale

      New York: Random House, 1930 Illustrated by Rockwell Kent. First edition. Publisher's black cloth boards, with lettering and whale illustrations stamped in metallic silver; in the original gray pictorial dust jacket, with the same whale illustrations to the front panel and spine in black and blue, lettered in black. Book fine; unclipped dust jacket, with some shallow chips to the spine ends, small chip very slightly affecting the title lettering, minor toning to the spine, minor split to the front hinge at the spine head, two tiny holes to the rear panel at the edges, otherwise bright and clean panels. Overall, a very good and pleasing copy in an unsophisticated dust jacket. One of the great American novels, Moby Dick is narrated by Ishmael, a sailor on the Pequod. The ship is led by the tyrannical Captain Ahab who is consumed by his thirst for revenge on a ferocious sperm whale named Moby Dick. The novel employs a symbolic use of the color white - an expansion upon Melville's similar symbolism in his 1850 novel White-Jacket. Melville wrote Moby Dick as his friendship with fellow American Renaissance author Nathaniel Hawthorne was developing and dedicated the book to him. In 1926, prolific illustrator and artist Rockwell Kent was commissioned to illustrate Richard Henry Dana, Jr.'s Two Years Before the Mast, but the artist declined, choosing instead to create illustrations for Moby Dick. Kent was given full artistic license, which he used to create a now iconic series of woodcut prints, including the matching covers and dust jacket. After critics rediscovered the text in the 1920s, Rockwell's illustrated edition helped accelerate the renewed appreciation of Moby Dick that helped establish it as a crowning achievement in American Romantic and Renaissance writing.. Illus. by Kent, Rockwell. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.

Fine, bright copy in striking dust jacket. 20th Century Crime & Mystery Writers says, "A Gethryn mystery set in a country village with a veterinary surgeon as the principal character, and undoubtedly one of the most ingeniously contrived crimes in detective fiction." When the body of Lord Grenville was found on the doorstep of the Moon public house with a bullet through his head, it seemed quite obvious that the inn-keeper was the murderer. After all, he'd been overheard arguing with Lord Grenville shortly before his dead body was found. But Colonel Anthony Gethryn thinks that it's a bit too obvious and wonders what the silver sand was doing on the back of the murdered man's coat??? Beautiful copy. Crime Club title.

Disney. 4to (9 x 12"), green pictorial wraps, 15p., a fine intact copy with no sil or wear. This is the true first Mickey Mouse book (one of the early issues with bottom panel of rear cover blank and with the word "kill" retained in the song). Published in order to raise money for his new film studio, this includes the Story of Mickey Mouse, Mickey Mouse Game, Mickey Mouse March and a Mickey Mouse Song entitled "Mickey Mouse (&#39;You Cute Little Feller&#39;) with accompanying arrangement for the ukelele. Illustrated by the Disney Studios with full page and partial page drawings in black, green and white. The story was written by Bobette Bibo, the 11 year old daughter of one of the publishers. Due to its fragile nature, few copies of quality exist today. See Munsey: Disneyana (p.163, 166) who notes "The book was a small venture, and a relatively small number was produced. Today, the few that survive complete with the game board are eagerly sought by collectors." A beautiful copy.

        A Map of the Bermuda Islands. The Sommer Ilands. Ia des Demonios Isles of the Devils

      Elizabeth Shurtleff and Helen F. McMillin.. 1930.. Color pictorial / pictographic map, 25 x 35 1/4 inches, originally folded, now professionally mounted on linen, minimising wear along upper part of left and upper centre fold line. A stunning pictorial map poster of the tropical isles of Bermuda. The decorative border features the fish and seaweeds of the tropical waters; the seas surrounding the islands are full of sailing vessels old and new as well as mythical creatures. At upper right the Graf Zeppelin is pictured at Murray's Anchorage; the pilot peers out with the question (contained in a speech bubble) "Mir ist als ob ich etwas rieche! Kann es zwiebeln sein? Ya, das ist Bermuda." ("I smell something! Can it be onions? Yup, that's Bermuda") Little pictographs indicate activities on shore. The inspiration of MacDonald Gill's Wonderground Map of London Town (1914) is evident in the speech bubbles containing quips and allusions. .

        Every Mother's Son [original title: Redheap]

      New York: Cosmopolitan Book Corporation. Fine in Near Fine dj. 1930. 4th printing. Hardcover. NOISBN . [lovely clean copy with no significant wear, remnant of vintage price sticker on rear pastedown; jacket bright and clean, with just a touch of smudging to the spine, a few tiny nicks at top and bottom edges of rear panel]. Lindsay's second novel (although seventeen years had gone by since his first, hence the lauding of him as a "new writer" in the jacket blurbs), a family saga set in a country town in Victoria, Australia, in the 1890s (supposedly based on his own hometown). Its protagonist is a 19-year-old lad whose dalliances with various local girls (including the parson's daughter) lead his family to place him under the tutelage of a school teacher who's also a recovering alcoholic -- and who also falls prey to the boy's corrupting influence. (And the rest of the family aren't exactly angels, either, as it turns out.) Although he was already widely known as an artist and illustrator, this fictional foray kicked off a new phase of Lindsay's career, that of literary bad boy; published in London by Faber & Faber, the book was banned in the author's native Australia until 1959. (It would not be the only one of Lindsay's novels to meet a similar fate.) The original U.K. edition is pretty scarce, the American edition ever-so-much-more-so -- and jacketed copies, in this kind of condition? Fuhgeddaboudit. .
