        As I Lay Dying

      Jonathan Cape New York: Jonathan Cape. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. FIRST EDITION, first issue, one of only 750 copies. "If T.S. Eliot was right in saying that American fiction took its first step forward since Henry James in The Great Gatsby, then one should be free to say that As I Lay Dying, which makes Fitzgerald's technique seem wooden and creaky, was a tremendous stride forward, making possible levels of awareness, a sense of variety, and a saturation of reality that would have delighted Henry James" (O'Connor, The Tangled Fire of William Faulkner). Petersen A7.New York: Jonathan Cape, (1930). Octavo, original cloth, original dust jacket. FIRST ISSUE, with "I" in the first line of page 11 dropped, in first state binding with lettering unbroken. (It is believed that only 750 of the 2522 copies of the first edition are in the first state).

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

      [Seattle, WA]:. Ca 1930.. 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].. 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.. Photographs generally Very Good or better. Album - Very Good.. 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.

         Shreve, Lamb & Harmon Plans for the Empire State Building's Information Desk, Basement and Foundation.

      Architectural diagram plans for the construction of the Empire State Building. 14 items, all pencil on paper or tracing vellum, various sizes ranging from 8x13 inches to 36x48 inches. Included are 5 plot plans showing the building?s outline and the surrounding streets and properties, 5 section plans of existing vaults and the machine room, 2 sub-basement plans, and the details of the pit for the refrigeration unit. Condition varies, but is generally very good; most of the plans have minor folds or tears in the margins. The freight elevator plan has some tape repairs on the reverse, but is not obtrusive. A plan showing a map of 34th and 33rd Streets has the most damage, with tears in the margin, some pieces missing, and some significant wrinkling; probably the least important plan in this collection. The 102 story landmark Empire State Building was completed in 1931 on the former site of the original Waldof-Astoria Hotel. The cost of construction was about $41 million (estimates suggest that today's cost would be close to $600 million), and was completed in less than a year and a half. The building was designed by William Lamb, of Shreve, Lamb and Harmon, whose plans are included in this collection. Considered as the "Eight Wonder of the World", when it opened, the building has had its share of notoriety, both good and bad. Suicides, a shooting on the observation deck, and even a plane crashing into it in 1945, have been part of the dark side of the building?s history. However, this iconic art deco building is as popular as ever, and probably one of the busiest tourist attractions in New York City. One of the most significant parts of this architectural collection is the plan for the rather famous information desk. Other parts include plans for the sub-basement, the machine room, pit for the freight elevators and refrigeration unit, and several plans illustrating the building?s outline on the surrounding streets. A unique collection of New York City history. History1900s.about.com.

        [History of the Peloponnesian War]. Translated into English by Benjamin Jowett

      Chelsea: Printed at the Ashendene Press, 1930 One of 260 copies on handmade paper out of a total edition of 280 copies. This is the last of the great folios printed by the Ashendene Press, following Spenser's Faerie Queen and Minor Poems, Malory's Morte D'Arthur, and Cervantes' Don Quixote. Full cream-colored pigskin with gilt spine. . Large folio, 16" x 11 1/2. Printed in black and red in Ptolemy type with chapter summaries in the margins printed in Blado Italic type. Decorative initial letters and opening lines of each of the eight books designed by Graily Hewitt. Covers very lightly soiled, a hint of foxing to the endpapers. Otherwise a fine, clean copy of one of the highlights of the Ashendene Press. In February 1931 a Notice was sent out to subscribers announcing the forthcoming issue of 'Thucydides' and in it was foreshadowed the closing down of the Press. After referring to the projected edition of Daphnis and Chloe, it goes on to say: 'It is more than probable that these two books will be the last to be issued from the Ashendene Press, with the possible exception of a Descriptive Bibliography of the Press, containing a number of specimen pages from the books printed between 1895 and the date of the closing down, and also specimens of the woodcut illustrations and initials used therein. It is ifficult to speak with certainty about the giving up of a hobby which has for more than 35 years occupied so many of my leisure hours, and I may be tempted to add yet another volume to the list. The chances are against it, but time alone will show'" (Ashendene Bibliography, p. 89).

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].. 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.. Photographs generally Very Good or better. Album - Very Good.. 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.
