        Caesar

      Putnam 1930 - London and New York first edition F/F.Red cloth black lettering ,no inscriptions foxing or stains ,88 pages ,1 colour frontispiece ,13 black and white illustrations by harry rountree. The book was printed by the westminster press in the uk who printed separate wrappers for the the UK and the US markets,the US priced at US$2 and the UK 5/-. This copy has the US wrapper .There appears to be a mystery about the true UK first as up to now a few serious collectors including terry zobeck who is soon to publish the difinitive bibliography have been unable to find a copy .All the copies we have found are Ists with the cheap wrapper C1932 which has titles listed on the rear panel not published until 1932 ,so if you have a copy with the true Ist wrapper let us know as this has become the holy grain for o'brian collectors. Wed love to know if a copy exists .The wrapper would almost certainly have been printed at the same time as the US ,but perhaps something happened to them .Its unlikely that Putnams would have printed more US wrappers than the UK and I have seen 6 copies of the US of which I have 3 ,so until a copy with the UK wrapper turns up we have to assume that at this point the true Ist is the US ,but terry and I would love to be proved wrong. The book turns up quite often but the wrapper almost always is chipped or stained or aged which makes this item rare [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        U.S.S. ALGONQUIN C. G. 328 Black & White Images.

      Ca 1930, [Seattle, WA]: - An extensive, albeit unofficial, visual record of life aboard the USS Algonquin, commissioned as a Revenue Cutter in 1897 and retired late in 1930. The Algonquin operated along the East Coast of the United States with additional assignments in the West Indies and the Gulf of Mexico. Later, in cooperation with the U.S. Navy at the onset of World War I, the Algonquin patrolled and defended Chesapeake Bay, with subsequent assignment to European waters, escorting over 750 ships safely in her rounds between Gibraltar, England and the Azores. In 1919, the Algonquin was transferred to the West Coast, assigned to the 13th Naval District, which meant patrolling the Pacific Northwest, as well as the islands and coast of Alaska, which included protection of endangered seals. Evidence suggests this album compiled by Farrell Harvey, a documented Algonquin crewman [F 1c] during the late 20s/early 30s, while the ship was stationed in the PNW. These primarily uncaptioned photographs illustrate the rough and ready life of sailors such as Harvey during their shipboard tour, with divers images of the crew, their drills and daily tasks, and significant occasions such as the Equatorial Line Crossing Ceremony. Many photographs show sister ships and other vessels, coastline scenery, whaling, and people encountered in the tropics and divers scenes while patrolling along the Pacific Northwest Coast. A wonderful primary source for seeing the life of a Coastie aboard a cutter during the late 1920s, and into the beginning of the 1930s. Photographs generally Very Good or better. Album - Very Good. Brown suede album with hand-painted suede covers with suede ties, with front cover having a hand-printed title ÒPhotographs U.S.S. Algonquin C.G.Ó & Coast Guard emblem. Oblong format: 8" x 11-1/2". 10 pp. autographs pages, unused except for five penciled names (all dated 1930) + 40 leaves of black mounting paper, unpaginated, with last two leaves unused. Images mostly snapshot size of 2-1/2Ó x 3-1/2Ó, or 3-/12Ó x 4-1/2Ó. Laid in: A menu from Thanksgiving dinner 1929, one 5Ó x 7Ó portrait of the crew, two 8Ó x 10Ó photographs, and a 1955 officialÕs Seattle Gold Cup committee ribbon [with Harvey's name-tag at top].

      n.p., [c. 1930] - The fantastic fairy shop, set in a dark, mysterious grove of tall trees.

He also wrote stories and music, and did periodical illustrations. In 1923 he published "The Ship that Sailed to Mars", which has become a fantasy classic. His "The Building of the Fairy City" remained unfinished at his death, apart from a few elegant and imaginative watercolors, such as the one offered here Image approx. 7-1/2 x 6 inches.

        Progress of Nations: The Story of the World and of Its Peoples from the Dawn of History to the Present Day (10 volume set) [SIGNED]

Complete 10 volume set of the National Patron of Honor Edition. Not registered to a specific patron. Signed on the right dedication page of volume 1 by Herman H. Weimert, National Commander of the Disabled American Veterans of the World War. Collection is complete, condition is Fine, all volumes. Clean, bright, and tight. Very minor darkening to leaf edges. Full leather, with no cracking. Green boards with ornate and beautiful gilt artwork to front cover, gilt decoration and lettering to spine. Beautifully illustrated end papers of the history of man through time. Top edge gilt. All text, as well as numerous illustrations and maps are in fine condition. A complete and fine set of a scarce collection. This set provides a unique snapshot into the world's history and into the thinking of American veterans at the end of the first World War, optimistically thought to be the "war to end all war." Its objective of understanding America's role in a turbulent world is particularly timely. This thorough collection is not only for those who love beautifully wrought books, but also for those interested in history, war, peace, and in remembering those who sacrifice in times of strife. These 10 volumes tell the history of the world-ancient, medieval, and modern-and the history of the United States though the end of the first great World War. In addition to text, the set tells its story via thousands of black and white and color photographs and illustrations, and via hundreds of maps and charts, many color fold-outs. From the foreword: "¿we have emerged from a world war, fought on our part to determine whether this nation, or any nation, may choose its way in peace. Five million Americans were called to the colors, and two million went overseas. Fifty thousand remain there forever. With the shock of this titanic conflict fresh in our experience, we now seek to understand its causes. Whether or not we may desire it, our interests have been drawn beyond America to the common problems of mankind. We are realizing that to comprehend the history of the United States one must know the history of the world. To promote, then, the intelligent civic insight that is one of the highest attributes of Americanism, this survey of the world's past has been prepared." From the website of the Disabled American Veterans organization (nee Disabled American Veterans of the World War), explaining its origins: "When the troops came home from World War I, some 300,000 carried grim reminders of war: disabling injuries, battle scars, gas-seared lungs, and prolonged illnesses. Following a tumultuous hero's welcome, America wiped the horror of war from its mind almost as quickly as the ticker tape was swept from the streets of New York City. As a result, the needs of the nation's disabled heroes were swept aside as well. Prejudice kept capable and qualified-but disabled-veterans from gaining employment in a job market with few enough opportunities to offer anyone. Veterans' benefits programs were administered by three separate government agencies with conflicting and overlapping responsibilities, leaving disabled veterans with massive confusion and red tape. Without a medical system dedicated to their needs, many disabled veterans found themselves sleeping on cots-or even on floors-in the halls of America's overwhelmed hospitals. Some just gave up the struggle, sitting on street corners with tin cups and signs reading: "Help Me. I'm a Disabled Veteran." Angered by the negligence and incompetence of the federal government in dealing with their problems, disabled veterans began forming local self-help groups in cities across America. In 1920, leaders from 250 of these groups gathered in Cincinnati, Ohio. Under the charismatic leadership of Judge Robert S. Marx, himself a veteran disabled in France, they federated into [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Woodcock

      1930 - Frank Weston Benson (1862-1951) was an American Impressionist artist, and a member of the Ten American Painters. He began his Studies at the school of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 1879, under Otto Grundmann, and later studied at the Académie Julian in Paris. Upon return to America, he would become an instructor at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. In 1888 Benson gained favorable attention in his first showing with the Society of American Artist in New York, with a piece that suggested the influence of academic Realism rather than Impressionism. By the early 1890s he began using his family as subjects; Benson later recalled having realized at the time that ¿design¿ was the most important component of painting. Consequently, works of the period provided evidence of a greater interest in patterns, silhouette, and abstract design. Late in his career, Frank Benson returned his boyhood interest in ornithological illustration. Following the 1913 Amory Show, Benson quietly moved to revolutionize the field of American sporting art. His rendering of wildlife, hunting, fishing, and camping infused the field with heightened artistic sensitivity, and reinvigorated a tradition- burdened field. Historical accounts indicate that Benson¿s teenage bird studies were extremely realistic. We can infer that they were similar to works by Alexander Pope (American, 1849-1924) and Louis Agassiz Fuertes (American, 1874-1927). Those painters concentrated on painting objects with precision. Each blue jay painted by Fuertes had exactly the same color tones and patterns. This is realism in the sense that twelve jays in a cage look precisely the same. In contrast, Benson¿s artistic training brought him to realize that a viewer¿s experience of a jay¿s appearance varies with the tint of light cast by the sky, whether the jay is front lit or back lit, and the background. Furthermore, Benson realized that we did not perceive the precise feather pattern of a bird at a distance of 20 feet. Benson had learned that our eyes perceive light, not objects, and he introduced that realization into the sporting art field. Other artists such as Roland Clark, A. L. Ripley, and Richard Bishop quickly followed his lead. In 1915 he first exhibited etchings of wild fowl, to popular acclaim. After 1920 Benson turned increasingly to the depiction of landscapes featuring wild life, an outgrowth of his interest in hunting and fishing, from then on producing a steady and profitable output of etchings and watercolors in this vein. At the request of fellow artist and conservationist Jay Norwood ¿Ding¿ Darling, Benson designed the second Federal Duck Stamp on 1935. Etching, 15 1/4 x 12 3/4 inches

        CONFESSIONS OF ZENO

      Alfred A. Knopf, New York 1930 - A lovely copy of Svevo's best work, a novel that is widely regarded as the "great modern Italian novel." Book Fine with a touch of mottling to the cloth on the rear board, otherwise clean, fresh and unread. In a Very Good + price-clipped dust jacket with small chips at the spine ends and one corner, otherwise in a quite attractive state. Self-published in 1923, the novel was largely ignored until championed by James Joyce, who had known Svevo and his writing for over 15 years. In fact, Svevo is credited as the inspiration for Joyce's immortal "Leopold Bloom" character in "Ulysses." A charming, riotous work of psychological realism in which Svevo's neurotic character writes his memoirs on the advice of his shrink. Fine in Very Good +. dust jacket. [Attributes: First Edition]

Due to ill health, she retired from the stage after a brief appearance at the Petit Casino, for which she had commissioned this poster.
