        Hector; la novela de ambiente Mexico

      the author, Marpha, TX 1930 - 377p., first edition, original wrappers rebound in black leatherette, gilt titles and bands at head and tail, bookmark ribbon bound-in, blank white endpapers replacing the original cover illustration, text in Spanish, very good rebound first edition. In spite of lacking the colorful pictorial covers of the original paper edition this is an attractive copy of a very scarce title. Gram is the pseudonym of David G. Ramirez, a Mexican priest who lived in San Antonio during the Cristero War for a decade starting around 1925. One of the rarest titles in Mexican American literature because of the imprint. We would not be surprised if the imprint were faked, and the book was actually published in northern Mexico, unlike subsequent editions [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        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. .

London: William Heinemann, (1956). First Edition. A Very Good or better copy in original publisher's cloth, which has been married to a price-clipped FINE ORIGINAL DJ. INSCRIBED BY AGATHA CHRISTIE on the front-free endpaper using her pseudonym: "To Charlotte, with love from Mary Westmacott." [With:] [Christie, Agatha] Westmacott, Mary. ABSENT IN THE SPRING. London: Collins, 1944. First Edition. A Very Good copy married to a Very Good example of the scarce original publisher's dust jacket (price-clipped), ASSOCIATION COPY. From the collection (book-label to each front paste-down) of Charlotte "Carlo" Fisher (1895-1976). Charlotte Fisher, initially hired to serve as nanny to Christie's daughter Rosalind, was pressed into service as a part-time shorthand secretary during the earliest days of the author's career. To quote from Christie's autobiography, Charlotte Fisher was "friend and secretary and governess and dogsbody and everything else for many years. [She] is still one of my best friends." The six "Mary Westmacott" novels (of which we offer five) were those which Agatha Christie wrote to explore feelings that had no place in her mystery tales. Quoting Christie's daughter Rosalind at the time of her mother's centenary in 1947: "The Mary Westmacott novels have been described as romantic novels but I don't think that is really a fair assessment. They are not 'love stories' in the general sense of the term, and they certainly have no happy endings. They are, I believe, about love in some of its most powerful and destructive forms." Agatha Christie wasn't in the habit of inscribing her non-mystery novels; until Carlo Fisher's copies were discovered, contemporary presentation copies were unknown and we can find no auction records for any other contemporaneously signed or inscribed Mary Westmacott books. Here we have five "Carlo Fisher" copies, all with her book-label and four of which are either signed or inscribed. A unique opportunity for the Christie collector to say the least. More information or photos on request.. Signed by Author. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

Ronald Vere Tooley, considered the effective founder of the modern antiquarian map trade, was born and raised in London. After serving in World War I where he was one of the few in his regiment to survive the Battle of Cambrai, he joined the London booksellers Francis Edwards Ltd where he produced catalogues of rare books and old maps throughout the 1920s. After an attempt at his own business in the 1930s, Tooley rejoined Francis Edwards following World War II. Tooley devoted much of his time to the history of cartography and was considered an authority on early maps and cartographers. He authored multiple books on the subject and founded the Map Collectors' Circle, which published a series of monographs on historical cartography from 1963-1975. The festschrift, My Head is a Map, compiled in 1973 for his 75th birthday by British Library Map Librarians Helen Wallis and Sarah Tyacke, celebrated his contributions to the world of antiquarian maps.

        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.
