        Cantique des Cantiques de Salomon.

      Tall slim 8vo. [Paris: Editions de Cluny, 1931]. Tall slim 8vo, 32, (1, colophon) pp. With 10 wood-engravings and several initial letters by Eric Gill. Text printed in red and black. Original de luxe binding of full red morocco signed by O. Dorfner. Very slight spotting to upper cover, otherwise as issued. Edition limited to 100 copies in French, printed in the type Antiqua designed by Gill and cut by Prince; this book is one of the outstanding works of the Press and one of Gill’s masterpieces. Versions in Latin and German were also printed. Copies of this version are very scarce -- the last one at auction was in 1993, in the trade binding ($1100) and the Schimmel copy on vellum sold in 2000. Brinks 93: noting this edition but not in this binding, which appears to be unrecorded on paper copies. Sophie Schneideman noted of her copy: “Kessler seems to have got the very best out of Gill, with a darker mood and deeper intensity in his engravings than was usual for the artist. Some of this is achieved by the style of printing but much must have been due to Kessler's tight control of the production and strong influence over Gill's work for it. The partnership produced a truly remarkable work of art.”

        The World Crisis: The Eastern Front

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1931. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is a superior copy of the sixth and final book of Churchill's acclaimed history of the First World War, essential to filling a full set of British first editions. Scarcity owes to the fact that the first printing was just 5150 copies, as opposed to 7500 for the British first edition of each of the preceding five books. Consequently these are rarely offered outside of sets. In proposing the book to his publisher, Churchill wrote: "In the previous volumes of the World Crisis I have described only in a few pages the course of events in the Eastern theatre. They have merely been the background of our main drama of the war. But now I think I might write a volume called 'The Eastern Front', which would be separate from but supplementary to our five volume history." Here is the first British edition, first printing, a near fine copy, suitable for anchoring a premium first edition set. The blue cloth binding is notably square and tight with nicely rounded spine, sharp corners, and only trivial wear to extremities. Spine presentation is excellent, the blue undulled and the gilt vivid. The contents retain a crisp feel and the all illustrations and maps are present. The folding maps at p. 98, 142, 156, 250, 256, 308, 324, 338, 346, and 368 are all properly folded; as is common, the p.368 map has a short tear at the blank margin where it attaches to the text block. We find no previous ownership marks. Spotting modest for the edition, primarily confined to the prelims through the final page of the Preface and the page edges. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.2(V).a, Woods/ICS A31(ab), Langworth p.105.

      Bushy Island, AK, 1931. All housed in a small commercial 'Snapshot' ablum. Album well worn, with a some mounting leaves detached. Clippings yellowed, but quite readable. Photographs generally clear & sharp. Overall, a Good album with VG contents.. 22 leaves of black 'mounting stock' paper. 38 b/w silver gelatin photographs [most captioned, ~ 2-3/4" x 4-5/8"], 19 clippings related to the company, as well as the Blue Fox industry & 5 half-tone images of foxes, et al. Album: 4-5/8" x 5-5/8" This interesting documentary & promotional photo album which provides an invaluable historical look at a very successful fox farming venture on Bushy Island, in the Southeast Alaska Islands. Following World War I, there was a quick rise in fur prices offering an entrepreneurial opportunity seized by Charles Kletsch, Clarence C. Brown, and others who organized the Alaska Blue Fox Company in July 1922 and leased Bushy Island in the Tongass National Forest off the coast of Alaska, stocking the island with 20 breeding pairs of foxes. At the time, fox farming operations were encouraged by the U.S. Government on Alaska Islands because the animals could run free, and they were believed to produce better pelts than cage-raised animals. The Blue Fox was especially popular in Alaska as they adapted well to the secluded islands, thrived on the cheap castoff foods of salmon & fish scraps from local Alaskan canneries, though also preying on wild birds and their eggs. The Forest Service leased the islands for as little as $ 25.00 a year, and pelts could be sold for up to $ 450.00 apiece during the 1920s. Kletsch was a successful Cowlitz County, Washington dairy farmer who sold a large 500 acre tract to the Long-Bell Lumber Company in 1921 for close to $100,000 which was then developed for the Paper Mills and Company Town of Longview, WA (centered on present day site of Lake Sacajawea). Later, after selling the land, he operated the Alaska Blue Fox Co., and speculated on real estate before losing all his money in the Great Depression. Clarence C. Brown (b. 1868) was a real estate speculator, consulting engineer, and salesman based in Vancouver, Washington, who collaborated with Kletsch in a number of businesses before also suffering a Great Depression bankruptcy. The clippings and photos detail how Bushy Island was reached by boat from Wrangell Island, the construction of a large house, store house, and sheds for supplies and pelts. Photos show the house which had running water, a hot water tank, a view of the Company Bay, the foxes running around on the island, the company’s boat The Kermath, and photos of the farmers holding bundles of pelts, as well as pelts hanging outside the sheds. The Company flourished until the Great Depression, when the prices of furs plummeted, and destroyed the very lucrative, albeit fledgling industry. A nice primary source for this one-time thriving PNW business.

This copy is INSCRIBED for Ralph Fabri "love included" and SIGNED by Dreiser in May of 1931 (The book was published May 8.). Fabri was a Hungarian painter who was commissioned to paint a portrait of Dreiser's cousin and companion Helen in 1929 and who became Helen's confidant as she poured out her troubles over Dreiser's womanizing. Dreiser would marry Helen in 1944, a year before his death. Fabri, who became a lifelong friend of both Dreisers, was eventually put in charge of supervising the construction of Dreiser's monstrous home, Iroke, that would prove to be an albatross to the writer in his later, more difficult financial years.

        Snow Crystals. (FIRST EDITION.)

      New York: McGraw-Hill, 1931. - FIRST EDITION (stated on title page). ix, 227 pp; plates (containing approx. 2,500 photomicrographs). Original cloth, gilt snowflake on front cover, folio (32 x 25 cm). Ex-library: embossed stamp on title page. Label on spine, clear taped over. Bookplate on front pastedown, pouch on rear pastedown. Else Very Good. 'Wilson Alwyn 'Snowflake' Bentley (February 9, 1865 – December 23, 1931), born in Jericho, Vermont, United States is one of the first known photographers of snowflakes. He perfected a process of catching flakes on black velvet in such a way that their images could be captured before they either melted or sublimed. . . . He first became interested in snow crystals as a teenager on his family farm. He tried to draw what he saw through an old microscope given to him by his mother when he was fifteen. The snowflakes were too complex to record before they melted, so he attached a bellows camera to a compound microscope and, after much experimentation, photographed his first snowflake on January 15, 1885. He would capture over 5,000 images of crystals in his lifetime. Each crystal was caught on a blackboard and transferred rapidly to a microscope slide. Even at subzero temperatures, snowflakes are ephemeral because they sublime. Bentley poetically described snowflakes as 'tiny miracles of beauty' and snow crystals as 'ice flowers.' Despite these poetic descriptions, Bentley brought a highly objective eye to his work, similar to the German photographer Karl Blossfeldt (1865–1932) who photographed seeds, seed pods, and foliage. Bentley's work gained attention in the last few years of the nineteenth century. Harvard Mineralogical Museum acquired some of his photomicrographs. In collaboration with George Henry Perkins, professor of natural history at the University of Vermont, Bentley published an article in which he argued that no two snowflakes were alike. This concept caught the public imagination and he published other articles in magazines, including National Geographic, Nature, Popular Science, and Scientific American. His photographs have been requested by academic institutions worldwide. In 1931 Bentley worked with William J. Humphreys of the U.S. Weather Bureau to publish Snow Crystals, a monograph illustrated with 2,500 photographs' (Wikipedia).

        The Good Earth.

      New York: John Day, 1931. First edition of the author's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel and masterpiece. First issue with "flees" for "fleas" on page 100, line 17. Signed by Pearl Buck on the half title page. Octavo, finely bound in full black morocco, gilt titles to the spine, raised bands, gilt ruled to the front and rear panels, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Over eighty years have passed since The Good Earth won the Pulitzer Prize, it has retained its popularity and become one of the great modern classics. "I can only write what I know, and I know nothing but China, having always lived there," wrote Pearl Buck. In The Good Earth she presents a graphic view of a China when the last emperor reigned and the vast political and social upheavals of the twentieth century were but distant rumblings for the ordinary people. This moving, classic story of the honest farmer Wang Lung and his selfless wife O-lan is must reading for those who want to fully appreciate the sweeping changes that have occurred in the lives of the Chinese people during this century.

The Griffon Bruxellois may refer to three different breeds, the Griffon Bruxellois, the Griffon Belge and the Petit Brabançon. Identical in standard except for coat and colour differences, in some standards they are considered varieties of the same breed, much like Belgian Sheepdogs. The three variations of this dog, the Brussels Griffon (Griffon Bruxellois), the Belgian Griffon (Griffon Belge), and the Petit Brabançon, all descend from an old type of dog called a Smousje, a rough coated, small terrier-like dog kept in stables to eliminate rodents, similar to the Dutch Smoushond. The little wire-haired dog in the foreground of the Jan van Eyck painting The Arnolfini Marriage is thought to be an early form of this breed. In Belgium coachmen were fond of their alert little Griffons d’Ecurie (wiry coated stable dogs) and in the 19th century, they bred their Griffons with imported toy dogs. Breeding with the Pug and King Charles Spaniel brought about the current breed type, but also brought the short black coat that led to the Petits Brabançon, which was originally a fault in the breed. The spaniels also brought the rich red and black and tan colour of the modern Griffon Bruxellois and Griffon Belge. The Griffon Bruxellois grew in popularity in the late 19th century with both workers and noblemen in Belgium. The first Griffon Bruxellois was registered in 1883 in the first volume Belgium's kennel club studbook, the Livre des Origines Saint-Hubert (LOSH). The popularity of the breed was increased by the interest of Queen Marie Henriette, a dog enthusiast who visited the annual dog shows in Belgium religiously, often with her daughter, and became a breeder and booster of Griffon Bruxellois, giving them international fame and popularity. Many dogs were exported to other countries, leading to Griffon Bruxellois clubs in England (1897)[3] and Brussels Griffon clubs in the U.S. (1945.) The First World War and Second World War proved to be a disastrous time for the breed. War time is difficult on any dog breed, and the recovering numbers after the First World War were set back by increased vigilance in breeding away from faults such as webbed toes. By the end of the Second World War, Belgium had almost no native Griffon Bruxellois left, and it was only through the vigilance of dedicated breeders (in the U.K. particularly) that the breed survived at all. The breed has never been numerous or popular, but had a brief vogue in the late 1950s, and now is generally an uncommon breed. There has been a recent increase in interest in the United States due to the appearance of a Griffon in the movie, As Good as It Gets, and also because of a general increase in interest in toy dogs.

        Collection of Heartfield Covers. 26 Titles.

      1931. HEARTFIELD'S PHOTOMONTAGE "TURNED THE BOOK COVER INTO A POLITICAL INSTUMENT" HEARTFIELD, John. A collection of 26 volumes, all of which are preserved in the original publisher's bindings designed and illustrated by John Heartfield, including novels by Upton Sinclair and Ilja Ehrenburg, anti-Nazi books and work in praise of Communist Russia. |~||~||~||~||~| An impressive collection of strikingly original book jackets designed by John Heartfield which he designed for his brother's firm, Malik-Verlag, for works by such authors as Upton Sinclair and Ilya Ehrenburg. Heartfield placed his photomontage images on the front and back of the jackets to instantly convey the books' contents. This was a dramatic departure from the plain jackets of the period. According to the great designer and typographer Jan Tschichold, Heartfield was the inventor of photomontage book covers; furthermore, his designs for Malik were the first of their kind (Das neue Typographie, 1928, p. 228). "Today it is almost forgotten that [Heartfield] tested the artistic-political impact of photomontage on a wallflower that nobody took notice of, the dust jacket. Photomontage appeared for the first time on this slim, oblong, double page as a genre integrating the graphic, literary, and agitational means of expression into something new. The works, created mostly for the Malik publishing company in the twenties, were a bold experiment: Heartfield made the dust jacket 'active,' and let it 'fight' for the author. It is hardly imaginable today what a fascinating contract those miniature montages were in contract to the usual, sober or whimsical book covers" (Lilly Becher, quoted by Pachnicke). In very good to fine condition. LITERATURE: Pachnicke, John Heartfield (New York: Abrams, 1991, pp. 96-99, with numerous reproductions). PLEASE INQUIRE FOR COMPLETE LIST

        Put in His Thumb, TLS and Signed and Inscribed Card to Philip Jessup.

      1931 - With an Inscribed Presentation Card to Philip Jessup Llewellyn, K[arl] N[ickerson] [1893-1962]. Jessup, Philip [1897-1986]. Put in His Thumb. New York: The Century Company, [1931]. [x], 119 pp. Quarter cloth over speckled boards, black lettered title to front cover, deckle edges, most signatures unopened. Light shelfwear and soiling. Near-fine 5" x 3" presentation card inscribed to Philip Jessup and 8-1/2" x 11" mimeographed typescript presentation letter laid in. * First edition, first printing. Collected poems of one of the leading American legal thinkers of the twentieth century. One of these is a tribute to Oliver Wendell Holmes. The presentation letter is in the manner of a press release. It says, in part: "I hope you like them. But if you don't, send them back and get a check. (.) One thing will interest you: the number of law-men whose letters showed, or shyly confessed, or brazenly announced interest in verse is such as to threaten the existing order. Some unsuspected and insidious propaganda has been poisoning the purer factuality of the profession. Unless something is done about it, and at once, verse-in-lawyers may become respectable." The part-printed laid-in card features a caricature of a naked Llewellyn (?) sitting cross-legged and gesturing to a motto: "Nothing endures, surely not these. But me they please - Now they are yours." Below this motto is an autograph inscription to Philip Jessup dated October 7, 1931: "To my friend Phil Jessup, these play-word jingglings, as a contrast to the serious ones of law." Jessup, a judge on the International Court of Justice, important legal scholar and U.S. diplomat, was credited with playing a major role in ending the Soviet blockade of West Berlin. He was a representative to the United Nations General Assembly, as well as a U.S. ambassador at large from 1949 until his resignation in 1953. Like Llewellyn, he was a professor of law at Columbia University. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

A lovely copy of a scarce volume that is less a book than a work of art.

In my opinion this one will continue to go up in value forever."
