        My Early Life

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1930. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Very good plus. This book comes from the personal collection of Churchill's bibliographer, Ronald I. Cohen. This is the first edition, first printing, first state, first binding state. Originally published in October 1930, My Early Life is Churchill's extremely popular autobiography, covering the years from his birth in 1874 to his first few years in Parliament. One can hardly ask for more adventurous content. These were momentous and formative years for Churchill, including his time as a war correspondent and cavalry officer in theatres as varied as Cuba, northwest India, and sub-Saharan and southern Africa. This time contained a wide range of experiences in Churchill’s life. Not only was he developing as an author, publishing his first books, and making his first lecture tour of North America, but this was also the time of his capture and daring escape during the Boer War, which made him a celebrity and helped launch his political career. Churchill would take his seat in Parliament only weeks after the end of Queen Victoria's reign. My Early Life remains one of the most popular and widely read of all Churchill's books. And for good reason, as the work certainly ranks among the most charming and assessible of his many books. An original 1930 review likened it to a "beaker of Champagne." That effervescent charm endures; a more recent writer called it "a racy, humorous, self-deprecating classic of autobiography." To be sure, Churchill takes some liberties with facts and perhaps unduly lightens or over-simplifies certain events, but this is eminently forgivable and in keeping with the wit, pace, and engaging style that characterizes the book. My Early Life sold very well at the time and has seen a great many editions since, many of them collectible in their own right, but of course a premium attaches to first editions. The challenge for collectors is that the plum colored binding of this edition proved especially susceptible to fading, soiling, and wear; nearly all copies are considerably spine faded. Moreover, the contents are susceptible to heavy spotting and the binding is often cocked. This helps explain why so many first editions of this book have been torn apart and rebound. Here is a very good plus copy - an unrestored first edition, first printing, first state, first binding state that, while not fine, is in unusually clean condition for the edition. Edition, impression, and state are confirmed by a three-line rather than five-line title on the front cover, a binding in rough texture cloth rather than smooth, and 11 Churchill titles listed on the half-title verso. The cloth binding remains square and tight with nicely rounded spine and bright gilt. The spine is toned, as usual, but retains a respectable amount of color and decent shelf presentation. We note only modest wear to extremities, with a hint of fraying at the spine ends and small bumps to the lower corners. The contents are notable for showing no spotting whatsoever. We note modest overall age-toning with minor dust soiling to the top edge of the text block. The sole previous ownership mark is a gift inscription in pencil on the first free endpaper reading: "Hope you'll like this | Best wishes | Bob | Xmas 1930". The inscription may be erasable, but we have left it intact since it is from just two months after publication. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A91.1.a, Woods/ICS A37(aa), Langworth p.131.

To be sure, Churchill takes some liberties with facts and perhaps deceptively lightens or over-simplifies certain events, but this is eminently forgivable and in keeping with the wit, pace, and engaging style that characterizes the book. My Early Life sold very well at the time and has seen a great many editions since, many of them collectible in their own right, but of course a premium attaches to first editions. The challenge for collectors is that the plum colored binding of this edition proved especially susceptible to fading, soiling, and wear; nearly all copies are considerably spine faded. Moreover, the contents are susceptible to heavy spotting and the binding is often cocked. This helps explain why so many first editions of this book have been torn apart and rebound. This is the British first edition, first printing. The binding is smooth cloth with five lines on the front cover. (Note that both smooth and coarse cloth bindings, with either three or five line titles on the front cover, were produced by the publisher prior to publication.) This is the second state of the first printing, with 12 Churchill titles listed on the half-title verso. Condition is very good minus. The plum cloth binding is square and tight. Spine presentation is quite decent for the edition; the spine is only lightly sunned, retaining good, even color and bright gilt. The binding is moderately soiled and shows wear at the corners and spine ends. The contents are unusually clean; we find no spotting either internally or on the page ends. The contents show modest age-toning toward the edges. The paper is split at the half title gutter, but the webbing beneath remains entirely intact and the binding tight. The sole inscription - in pencil - is an owner's name and date of "1930" on the ffep. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A91.1.c, Woods/ICS A37(aa), Langworth p.131.

        The Bridge

      New York: Horace Liveright. (1930). First. First American edition, preceded by the very limited French edition. Photograph by Walker Evans. Fine in a very good, spine-faded dustwrapper with a couple of internally repaired short tears, in custom cloth chemise and quarter morroco slipcase. Inscribed by the poet: "For Tom Smith with best wishes, Hart Crane." This edition was extensively revised and corrected following the first privately printed edition of 275 copies published by the Black Sun Press in Paris three months earlier. Smith was the editor-in-chief for the publisher Horace Liveright to whom, some evidence exists, Crane turned to when he was short on funds. Smith picked a succession of bestsellers for Liveright beginning with Hendrick Van Loon's The Story of Mankind (1921). Equally important, he selected up-and-coming writers Eugene O'Neill (Gold: A Play in Four Acts), Ernest Hemingway (In OurTime), William Faulkner (Soldier's Pay), T.S. Eliot (The Waste Land), Sherwood Anderson (Windy McPherson's Son), and Hart Crane (The Bridge). He also edited Dreiser's An American Tragedy. As Manuel Komroff wrote in his tribute to Smith and to his lasting influence on American literature: "Here was born a new American renaissance. All literature was changed and the relation between literature and the great American public was also changed ... much of this change was due to Tom Smith ... No one literary man in America has to his credit so much and no one literary man has carried this load with such humble modesty ..." (The Book of Tom Smith. A Biblio-Epitaph. Privately Printed, 1942). The relationship between Liveright and Smith inspired Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur to co-write and co-direct the 1935 film The Scoundrel (for which they won an Academy Award for their screenplay). One of the highspots of 20th Century poetry, rare signed, and with an excellent association. Connolly 100. .

        A Theory of Electrons and Protons

      The Royal Society, London 1930 - FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS of Dirac's electron "hole" theory; the foundation for his prediction of anti-matter. One troubling consequence of the famous Dirac relativistic wave equation was that it implied that electrons should exist in states of negative as well as positive energy. Therefore a Dirac electron with initially positive energy should fall indefinitely by spontaneous emission towards states of lower and lower energy. To avoid this Dirac postulated in "A Theory of Electrons and Protons" that the states of negative energy were normally filled up according to the exclusion principle. Holes in this "sea" would behave like positively-charged particles. Dirac initially believed that these holes could be identified with protons, but Hermann Weyl and others showed that they should have the same mass as the electron. The following year, in the introduction to another paper (on a different topic), Dirac conceded and called these holes 'anti-electrons'. The existence of this particle was demonstrated experimentally by Carl Anderson in 1932; he called it the 'positron'. Dirac shared the 1933 Noble Prize in Physics with Schrodinger for "for the discovery of new productive forms of atomic theory". Particle Physics: One Hundred Years of Discoveries: "Introduction of the negative energy electron sea with holes treated as positive electrons". IN: Proceedings of the Royal Society, A126, Vol. 126, pp.360-65. London: The Royal Society, 1930. Octavo, original wrappers; custom box. Toning to wrappers, otherwise fine.

        MY BOOKHOUSE and MY TRAVELSHIP. "CHRISTMAS BOOKHOUSE"

      The Book house for Children, Chicago 1930 - The "CHRISTMAS BOOKHOUSE" was issued once circa 1930. Six 8vo. Volumes (16th printing) and three 4to Travelship volumes (15th printing) all bound in green pictorial cloth with shaped paste-downs. The spines of the books mimic doors, windows and other architectural features of a house. The wooden house is a different design with the Travelship books in the center, one chimney instead of two and a dormer window. The original paint is red and green with gilt lettering over the side windows. This popular set of books was only issued once in these bindings and this particular wooden house. (A newspaper ad shows the house with steps in the front and two pieces of wooden shrubbery. These are not present.) Quite rare. The books show wear to spine tips and corners and scratching to paste-downs. A small piece of the paste-down is missing from volume 6. Volume 1 has been resewn. The wooden house is missing a small piece of wood at the bottom back and has some minor wear to the original paint. Overall, the books are Good in Near Very Good house. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
