        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.

        MOBY DICK

      New York: Random House, 1930. First Edition. Octavo; black cloth, with titling and decorations stamped in silver on spine and front panel; dustjacket; 822pp, [5]; illus. A fresh, Fine copy, with the gilt bright and entirely unrubbed. Dustjacket shows a barely-discernable trace of sunning to spine, with a single 3/8" tear at upper edge of rear panel, else Fine - a superlative copy, the very best we've seen or handled. Melville's towering achievement, richly illustrated throughout by Rockwell Kent following the 3-volume Lakeside Press edition published the same year. One of the most iconic illustrated books of the 20th century, and a highpoint of Art Deco design and typography. After seeing, selling, and handling several dozen copies of this edition, we can say conclusively that we've found a copy that defies expectations.

        The Edge of The Unknown

      New York, Putnam's. 1930, 39. First American edition: 8vo. Publisher's grey cloth titled in green to spine, near fine, minor edgewear and bumping to spine ends, clean and sharp. In an example of the scarce dustwrapper, somewhat worn to the edges with areas of shallow chiupping to the spine ends. Tape reinforcement to hinges and joints of dustwrapper. Internally clean, two bookseller labels to pastedown. Shows very well. Doyle explains his engagement with spiritualism and relates his fiery disagreement with the renowned showman and escapologist Houdini, a sceptic. The book is a testament to Doyle's belief in psychic revelation as well as an insight to the temper of the times. Houdini's supreme skill as an exponent of illusion was ironically the basis for his underhand attempts to expose those 'mediums' he perceived as charlatans.

        Castle Gay. ( A Dickson McCunn story)

      London, Hodder and Stoughton. 1930., 1930. FIRST EDITION, with SIGNED loose letter. 8vo. Publisher's dark green cloth, some bumping to spine, corners showing the unmistakeable evidence of being found attractive to the rodentine palate which has affected both book cloth and wrapper though not severely to their detriment. Some foxing, to endpapers and edges, a little dusty on the top. Wrapper has some closed tears and creasing to the top edge of the rear panel. Unfaded and only lightly soiled, a respectable copy with a laid in letter in Buchan's trademark scrawl from Elsfield Manor, written on the 11th of January 1933 and mentioning a young lady, a time and a railway station with some reference to the weather. Undoubtedly a code and almost certainly requiring the immediate attention of the Gorbals Die-Hards.
