      London: Faber & Faber, 1930. London: Faber & Faber, 1930 London: Faber & Faber, 1930. Proof copy, in advance of the first edition, annotated in pencil by editor or translator. 466 pp. 25 color proof plates laid in. Translated by M.R. James, Provost of Eton. 8¾x5½, plain blue wrappers, uncut. First Edition, Proof Copy. Proof copy with pencil corrections and notations by a proofreading editor (see scan). Though 24 color plates are described in the illustration contents, as with the later first edition, there are in fact 25 Christine Jackson color proof plate illustrations laid in at the front here, some with marginal registration lines. Leaned, front wrapper separating and some chips; page edges roughened due to their uncut status; numerous proofing pencil annotations as noted above. Still, very good. Described as fine by a respected gallery, though the wrappers assuredly are not that; contents are indeed near fine. See scans. Well thought of and popular translation of Andersen's stories, in an extremely scarce form, probably a unique copy with its corrective annotations and the extra illustration. Top provenance. L44n

        Four Unposted Letters to Catherine

      Paris: Hours Press,, [1930]. Paris: Hours Press,, [1930]. Octavo. Original illustrated boards in black and grey by Len Lye, black morocco backstrip, titles to spine gilt. Boards very lightly rubbed, spine just a little faded. Contents unopened. An excellent copy. First edition, first impression. Number 85 of 200 hand-set copies signed by the author on the limitation leaf. This charming book of philosophical advice was ostensibly written for the eight-year-old daughter of Robert Graves and Nancy Nicholson, close friends of the author. "Strongly reminiscent of prose by Gertrude Stein (to whom an epigraph is addressed), the letters toss abstractions about in a disarmingly simple fashion" and "suggest both an endorsement and a mockery of Edwardian wisdom that was characteristic of much Modernist thinking" (Library Journal review, 1993).

        A Roving Commission

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1930. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Very good. This is Churchill's extremely popular autobiography, covering the years from his birth in 1874 to his first few years in Parliament. Published in England as My Early Life, this is one of the few Churchill first editions for which the U.S. edition bears a different title than the British. Jacketed copies are extremely scarce. Even decent unjacketed copies are unusual. The red-orange cloth binding proved highly susceptible to fading and soiling and the fragile dust jacket proved highly vulnerable to wear and severe fading of the orange color, particularly on the jacket spine. Offered here is an especially fine copy in a very good plus first printing dust jacket. The red-orange binding retains vivid, entirely unfaded color and bright gilt. Notably, there is absolutely no fading whatsoever to the spine. The coarse cloth binding is tight, square, and remarkably clean with virtually no wear or soiling, sharp corners, and bright gilt. The contents are as crisp and bright as any we have seen. Even the page edges, including the untrimmed fore edge, remain bright with no age-toning, soiling, or spotting. The Scribner's "A" on the copyright page confirms a first edition, first printing. The same previous owner name from the year of publication is inked three times within - on the front pastedown, the half-title, and the blank verso of the frontispiece. It is dated "December 25, 1930" (publication was in October 1930) in the half-title gift inscription. The dust jacket is unusually clean and unclipped, still bearing the original $3.50 price on the front flap. Most notable, the spine retains a bright orange panel with only a barely discernible hint of sunning and light scuffing. The only loss is a .625 x .5 inch triangular chip at the upper front hinge. The jacket is crisp apart from a .375 inch strip across the top edge where it was evidently once misfolded and wrinkled. A plausible explanation is that the book was carelessly shelved with the dust jacket protruding from the top of the book. Apart from the top edge wear, this is a stunning example of the first printing dust jacket. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A91.2.b, Woods/ICS A37(b.2), Langworth p. 134.

Each volume is fine in the rare dust jackets with light wear to volume one of the spine. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Exceptionally rare in the original dust jackets and in this condition.In 1930, Keynes brought out his heavy, two-volume Treatise on Money, which effectively set out his Wicksellian theory of the credit cycle. In it, the rudiments of a liquidity preference theory of interest are laid out and Keynes believed it would be his magnum opus…[however, criticism was swift and extreme] and the Treatise led to the formation of a reading group, known as 'the circus,' composed of young Cambridge economists Richard Kahn and others… Kahn dutifully delivered reports of the Circus's discussions to Keynes, who subsequently began revising his ideas. One resulting criticism of the Treatise was that it failed to provide a theory of the determination of output and employment as a whole— a particular pertinent question given the huge amount of unemployment at the time" (History of Economic Thought).

        The Theory of Interest; as determined by impatience to spend income and opportunity to invest it

      New York: The Macmillan Company,, 1930. Octavo (220 × 144 mm). Original dark blue fine-ribbed cloth, spine lettered in gilt and with single gilt rules at head and tail, front cover blocked in blind. With 3 folding tables. Printed errata slip tipped in at page vii. Ownership inscription to the front free endpaper. A very good copy. First edition of Fisher's Theory of Interest, a revised version of his earlier book The Rate of Interest (1907). Dedicated to John Rae and Böhm-Bawerk, it is a further development of their ideas: "its greatness as a book lies wholly in its outstanding pedagogic qualities ... [which] amounted to the demonstration that the real rate of interest is determined by both demand and supply, by the demand for production and consumption loans on the one hand and the supply of savings on the other" (Blaug, Great Economists before Keynes, p. 79.).

Letter 1 reads as follows: "Dear Miss Wolff, Will you phone me so we can fix a time to talk about the secretarial position I advertised? Yours truly, Dashiell Hammett." Letter 2: "Dear Miss Wolff, I feel too lousy to work today--thank God. See you tomorrow. D.H." A tremendous combination of historical significance, humor, and a revealing sentiment from a notoriously lazy genius, written the year "The Maltese Falcon" was published.

A fine copy in the publishers original gray cardboard box with matching limitation number.Willy Pogany had previously illustrated the Rubaiyat in 1909, but these later illustrations are quite a different interpretation, more westernized and modernized than the earlier ones.Willy Pogány, born in Szeged, Hungary, in 1882, studied at Budapest Technical University and in Munich and Paris. His reputation as a muralist, painter and illustrator was well established in Paris, London and Munich before arriving in the United States in 1915, at the age of thirty-three. Skilled in an unusually wide range of media, he had won gold medals at exhibitions in Budapest, Leipzig, and at the Panama Pacific International Exhibition."Among Pogány's many murals are those for the Heckscher Children's Theatre in New York City and the Niagara Falls Power Station. As a painter he did portraits of famous people in all walks of life. An expert on scenery design and lighting effects, Pogány also designed sets for ballets and operas, including "Le Coq d'Or," and for many films, such as Modern Times for Charlie Chaplin as well as animated cartoons based on his children's books."Among his other artistic endeavors Pogány was an accomplished book illustrator. It was this phase of his career, especially as an illustrator of children's books, which gives this collection special relevance for Special Collections & University Archives at the University of Oregon Libraries. Pogány designed and illustrated more than 150 books. His illustrations include those for the Rubaiyat and the Sonnets from the Portuguese, The Song Celestial, The Adventures of Odysseus, Gulliver's Travels, and many others, both classic and original."Working tirelessly right up until the end, Willy Pogány died in 1955" (University of Oregon, Guide to the Willy A. Pogány Papers 1910-1967).

        A Treatise On Money: Two Volumes

      London: MacMillan & Company, 1930. First editions of each volume. Octavo, two volumes, original blue cloth. Review copy with the slip from MacMillan in volume one. Each volume is fine in the rare dust jackets with light wear to volume one of the spine. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Exceptionally rare in the original dust jackets and in this condition. In 1930, Keynes brought out his heavy, two-volume Treatise on Money, which effectively set out his Wicksellian theory of the credit cycle. In it, the rudiments of a liquidity preference theory of interest are laid out and Keynes believed it would be his magnum opus…[however, criticism was swift and extreme] and the Treatise led to the formation of a reading group, known as 'the circus,' composed of young Cambridge economists Richard Kahn and others… Kahn dutifully delivered reports of the Circus's discussions to Keynes, who subsequently began revising his ideas. One resulting criticism of the Treatise was that it failed to provide a theory of the determination of output and employment as a whole— a particular pertinent question given the huge amount of unemployment at the time" (History of Economic Thought).
