        My Early Life

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1930. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good. This is the British first edition, first printing, first state of Churchill's extremely popular autobiography, covering the years from his birth in 1874 to his first few years in Parliament. 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. Finding superior copies in unrestored, original bindings is increasingly challenging. Here is one in very good plus condition. First state of the first printing is confirmed by the presence of only 11 Churchill titles listed on the half-title verso. This binding is smooth cloth with five lines on the front cover. (Note that the first edition, first printing is characterized by variations including both smooth and coarse cloth bindings, with either three or five line titles on the front cover.) The plum cloth binding is square and tight, retaining sharp corners and showing only trivial hints of soiling and wear. Spine presentation is notable for the edition. The spine remains nicely rounded with bright gilt and only mild sunning. The contents remain atypically bright and clean for the edition. We find no internal spotting. The sole previous ownership mark we find is an inked previous owner name and street address on the first free endpaper. The title page and dedication page leaves remain uncut. Modest spotting is confined to the page edges, with light dust soiling to the top edge. The book is protected in a removable, clear mylar cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A91.1.b, Woods/ICS A37(aa), Langworth p.131.

        My Early Life

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1930. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good. This is Churchill's extremely popular autobiography, covering the years from his birth in 1874 to his first few years in Parliament. This is the British first edition, first printing. The plum colored binding of this edition proved especially susceptible to fading, soiling, and wear; nearly all copies are considerably spine faded, the plum color frequently bleaching nearly white with sun exposure. Moreover, the contents are susceptible to heavy spotting and the binding is often cocked. That's why so many first editions of this book have been torn apart and rebound. Finding respectable copies in unrestored, original bindings is increasingly challenging. This binding is coarse cloth with five lines on the front cover. (Note that the publisher's first edition, first printing is characterized by variations including both smooth and coarse cloth bindings, with either three or five line titles on the front cover.) This is the second state of the first printing, with 12 Churchill titles listed on the half-title verso. Condition is very good. The plum cloth binding is square and tight. Spine presentation is quite good for the edition; the spine is only modestly sunned, retaining good, uniform color and bright spine gilt. The binding is unusually clean, particularly for a coarse cloth variant example, showing only very slight shelf wear and very light soiling. The contents are unusually clean; we find no spotting either internally or on the page ends. The contents are bright with no internal spotting. We note a single previous owner's name inked to the upper right ffep. The page edges show light spotting and the top edge some dust soiling. We found within a note from 1970 from the previous owner to the bookseller from whom this copy was purchased and have left this in the book. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A91.1.c, Woods/ICS A37(aa), Langworth p.131.

A visual and textual discussion of Shochiku's TOKYO THEATRE, a large Western-style building designed for the performance of Kabuki, one of several Kabuki theatres in Tokyo which provided venues for Shochiku's near monopoly of traditional theatre at the time.

        [Aviation]. Aircraft Markings

      N.p., (1930). (28)ff. An informative watercolor manuscript describing the wing and rudder markings of aircraft from the United States, Latin America, Asia, and Europe. Most of the markings date from around the end of World War I, charting the rise of military aviation. The wing marking included under the description "U.S.A. Navy" is the first National Aircraft Insignia for Naval aircraft, which was only used from 1917 to 1918. The symbol was then changed to resemble the markings of the other Allied Powers and to distinguish itself from the enemy. Interestingly, no markings are included from countries within the Central Powers. The illustrations and miniscule text have been executed with military-like precision. A fascinating view into the history of aviation, bound in full vellum. Front endpaper is detatched and cover shows slight soiling; else near fine. (3 by 2 1/4; 76x57mm).

        My Early Life, inscribed and dated pre-publication to Lord Beaverbrook, housed in a half-morocco preservation case

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1930. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good. This first edition, first printing, is inscribed and dated six days prior to publication on the ffep. The unusually personal inscription inked in black in four lines on the ffep reads: "To Max / from / Winston / Oct 14. 1930". Confirmed by his bookplate, the inscription is to Lord Beaverbrook, William Maxwell Aitken (1879-1964, Knighted 1911, created Baron Beaverbrook 1917). Churchill met Beaverbrook in 1911. Their association proved lifelong, close, sometimes frictional, and both personal and professional. A dynamic young Canadian millionaire, Beaverbrook moved to England in 1910. Already a Member of Parliament in 1911, Beaverbrook quickly became both a force in Tory politics and a newspaper mogul. During and between two World Wars Churchill was supported by Beaverbrook, beset by him, employed by him, served in the Government with him, or some combination of the above. Their friendship lasted more than 50 years until Beaverbrook's death, less than a year before Churchill's own. Beaverbrook was one of the three close Churchill friends dubbed with some disapproval by Churchill's wife the "three Bs" - including Bracken and Birkenhead. Like Churchill, Beaverbrook was intelligent, opinionated, energetic, ambitious, and polarizing. A formidable friend, he defended Churchill after the WWI Dardanelles disaster. But just a few years after this book was inscribed their friendship suffered its greatest strain. During the 1930s Beaverbrook shared "the almost unanimous conviction of England's ruling classes that Winston exaggerates the Nazi menace". Beaverbrook opposed and belittled Churchill to the point of cruelty, calling his friend a "busted flush" and mocking his exclusion from Tory leadership. Churchill wrote a widely syndicated biweekly column for Beaverbrook's Evening Standard. But at the same time, Beaverbrook's famous cartoonist - Low - savaged Churchill. Beaverbrook fired Churchill after Munich for stridently opposing appeasement - both a financial blow and a lost rostrum. Beaverbrook then published news of Churchill's financial distress. Nonetheless, when Churchill returned to the Admiralty, he advocated to bring Beaverbrook into the Government. When Churchill became Prime Minister, Beaverbrook became Minister of Aircraft Production - despite the King's explicit reservations - and later Minister of Supply and Minister for Production. Beaverboook accompanied WSC on wartime visits to Roosevelt and led a British delegation to the Soviet Union, but resigned in 1942, precipitated by dissatisfaction with reconstruction of the Government. Churchill wrote to him: "We have lived & fought side by side through terrible days, & I am sure our comradeship & public work will undergo no break." and concluded "I am always yr affectionate friend." Beaverbrook continued to encourage and defend Churchill throughout the war and beyond. When Beaverbrook died, Churchill's secretary wrote privately "Sir Winston was deeply and obviously moved at Lord Beaverbrook's death, and in the last years no-one had been closer to him." Churchill's inscription is in excellent condition, the ink only modestly age faded and the page only slightly toned. The book itself is in very good condition. The original coarse cloth binding is square, clean, and tight with bright boards but with some of the spine sunning endemic to this edition, an unobtrusive glue repair to the cloth at the foot of the spine, and light wear to the lower rear hinge. The contents are bright and clean. Beaverbrook's armorial bookplate is affixed to the front pastedown, with loss at the edges from an apparent and thankfully aborted effort to remove it. The joints have been skillfully reinforced. Moderate spotting is confined to the page edges. The book is protected in a custom, half-morocco clamshell case in hand-dyed dark plum with raised spine bands and extensive gilt decoration. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A91.1.c, Woods/ICS A37(aa), Langworth p.131.

        Strike up the Band. Book by Morrie Ryskind (Based on a libretto by George S. Kaufman.)

      New York: New World Music Corporation, 1930 - Quarto .Contemporary red cloth, maroon morocco label to the spine and a green morocco patch label to the upper board, top edge gilt, original wraps bound in. Housed in a black cloth flat back solander box. Slightly rubbed at the extremities, a little soiled, light toning, the first few leaves with minor restoration to the margins, but overall a very good copy. First edition, first printing of the score. A superb association copy inscribed by both George and Ira, with quotations from the show; "He's a man of very high degree, not low - but high!" with a sketch by Ira of a man bowing. The recipient, Newman Levy, was a lawyer who graduated from New York University in 1911, Assistant District Attorney of New York County, 1916-9, but he had always wanted to be a songwriter like his cousin Richard Rodgers, to which end he studied music with Algonquin habitué Deems Taylor. He practised law until his death in 1966, but did become known as a writer of light verse, published in the New Yorker and Saturday Evening Post, which was collected in book form; as a reviewer of opera and musicals; and as a composer of skits for Broadway revues. A friend of the Gershwins, he is probably best remembered for his swift riposte to George's musing as to whether his music would still be performed in a hundred years' time; "Yes, if you're around to play it!" Heavily influenced by Gilbert and Sullivan, Strike up the Band was the Gershwin's first fully integrated score for a book musical. It had failed on try-out in Philadelphia in 1927, and for its Broadway run three years later Ryskind rejigged various elements of the story, and the Gershwins added twelve new songs and rewrote many others both melodically and lyrically. Overall the effect was to make the show less G & S and more in tune with the developing Swing craze, Red Nichols led the pit orchestra at the Times Square Theatre which included Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Gene Krupa, Jimmy Dorsey, and Jack Teagarden.
