        Penhally

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1931. Very Good/Good. First edition. Modest overall wear, very good in age-toned, good only dustwrapper, with the front spine-fold professionally reinforced on the verso. Inscribed by Gordon to her first cousin, Marion (Manny) Meriwether, using her own nickname ("Kidy"): "To my dear Manny with much love, Kidy." The author's uncommon and fragile first novel. Gordon's reputation as the "den mother" for the Southern Literary Renaissance has overshadowed the excellence and enduring qualities of her own work, which are certain to be better appreciated by future generations of critics. Exceptionally uncommon, especially signed.

        If It Had Happened Otherwise.

      London: Longmans, Green and Co., , 1931. Lapses into Imagined History. Octavo. Original green cloth, title gilt to the spine. With the dust jacket. Slight dusty on the boards head and tail, light scatter of foxing to the fore-edge with millimetric encroachment into the fore-margin, pale differential browning to the endpapers, else a genuinely excellent copy in unclipped jacket, a touch sunned on the spine, pinhole to the lower edge of the spine panel which has three short splits at the head, supported internally with a strip of japanese tissue, with associated minor surface colour loss. First edition, first printing, variant binding as noted by Cohen, but he does not describe the jacket of either version, and the jacket on this uncommon variant is entirely different to that usually encountered. In The Command of History David Reynolds draws attention to Churchill's attraction to the counterfactual, and here he is given free reign to play with the "what ifs" of history and contributes an elegantly constructed Möbius strip of an essay titled "If Lee had not won the Battle of Gettysburg". Other contributors include Chesterton, Belloc, Philip Guedalla and H.A.L. Fisher. Reviews on the front turn-in include Rebecca West for the Daily Telegraph, "As lively a book as one could wish for", and J.L. Hammond in the Manchester-Guardian, "Imaginary history, with a light and often lightning touch". An extremely uncommon book in any condition, this a truly exceptional copy.

        Köpfe des Alltags: Unbekante Menschen / Everyday Heads

      Berlin: Verlag Hermann Reckendorf 1931 - First Edition. Quarto. Variant binding in limp boards, rather than spiral-bound. 80 plates, consisting exclusively of close-ups of heads, shot in an expressionistic style that belies the simplistic titling of the portraits. Seminal European photobook of the 30s; a highlight of the New Objectivity movement and a consensus highspot. Lerski was also a renowned filmmaker; he worked on Fritz Lang's Metropolis. (Roth 68-69; Parr / Badger, v1, 130-131; Open Book 98-99; Auer 172). Light spotting to the covers at the spine heel, else near fine in limp black boards in a very good example of the scarce and fragile jacket, with shallow chipping at the head of the spine, bottom of the front panel by the flap fold, and spine heel. Very minor archival restoration present at the defects. A complete and attractive copy, quite uncommon in anything resembling a serviceable jacket. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Jock of the Bushveld

Near-contemporary red half morocco by Bayntun, titles and decoration in gilt to spine in compartments, red cloth sides, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Colour frontispiece with tissue-guard, 22 monochrome plates, and fully illustrated margins. Binder's stamp to front free endpaper verso. Spine lightly faded, an excellent, bright copy. Literary" edition, later impression, with the marginal illustrations of a dung beetle at pp. 65, 337 & 457 corrected to show the beetle rolling his load with his back not front legs. Jock of the Bushveld was first published in 1907 in this literary edition, followed by School and Prize editions in 1908, and a Dutch edition in 1909. Reviewing the book in the TLS on first publication in 1907, John Buchan wrote; "to those who have some experience of the land and the life about which Fitzpatrick writes, Jock of the Bushveld will be a cherished possession. We know of no African book in which there is the same minute and loving observation of nature. Sir Percy sees the beauty of a landscape while the average man thinks of a waste of thorn and swamp. There is something of Jefferies in the style, something of Borrow, a touch of Mr. Kipling, and a great deal which is his own", while Mendelssohn describes it as "perhaps one of the best dog stories ever written".

        Daffodil

      Vendome Press 1931 - Manchester-born novelist Jack Kahane began the Obelisk Press after his publisher, Grant Richards, went bankrupt. Going into partnership with a printer, Kahane, as Cecil Barr, published his next novel Daffodil under his Vendome imprint. Pearson identified July 1931 [3rd impression] as the earliest issue printed: "Np copy earlier than this, the so-called third impression, has been located. Kahane regarded Daffodil as the first Obelisk title: failure would have been unthinkable. He almost certainly exaggerated the number of times the book went to press in order to give the appearance of healthy sales, and stimulate demand. Lending weight to this theory is the sign-off which appears at the end of the text on [301]: Paris, May 1931. It seems unlikely that the book would have been set, proof-read and published in less than a month, and unlikelier still that it would have been reprinted twice by July. " Pearson is clearly slightly off the mark. This scarce "2nd" impression appears to have been printed in June 1931 with quite possibly no prior impression ever published. Daffodil, light bit of erotica about a model who did more, perhaps, off-camera. Was a shocker for the tourists in the early '30s. Fraying to the spine with closed tears, small creases to the covers. Pages are clean. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Jock of the Bushveld. Illustrated by E. Caldwell.

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co, 1931 - Octavo (205 x 148 mm). Near-contemporary red half morocco by Bayntun, titles and decoration in gilt to spine in compartments, red cloth sides, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Binder's stamp to front free endpaper verso. Spine lightly faded, an excellent, bright copy. Colour frontispiece with tissue-guard, 22 monochrome plates, and fully illustrated margins. "Literary" edition, later impression, with the marginal illustrations of a dung beetle at pp. 65, 337 & 457 corrected to show the beetle rolling his load with his back not front legs. Jock of the Bushveld was first published in 1907 in this literary edition, followed by School and Prize editions in 1908, and a Dutch edition in 1909. Reviewing the book in the TLS on first publication in 1907, John Buchan wrote; "to those who have some experience of the land and the life about which Fitzpatrick writes, Jock of the Bushveld will be a cherished possession. We know of no African book in which there is the same minute and loving observation of nature. Sir Percy sees the beauty of a landscape while the average man thinks of a waste of thorn and swamp. There is something of Jefferies in the style, something of Borrow, a touch of Mr. Kipling, and a great deal which is his own", while Mendelssohn describes it as "perhaps one of the best dog stories ever written". Mendelssohn I, p.550.

        Aristocracy and the Meaning of Class Rule.

      London: The C. W. Daniel Company,, 1931. An Essay upon Aristocracy Past and Future. Tall octavo. Original red cloth, black cloth backstrip, spine lettered in gilt, edges uncut. Numerous marginal pencil marks and comments in English in the neat and legible hand of the Kaiser. A little spotting, heaviest to title and advert leaf at rear, hinges cracked, a very good copy. Together with four black and white snapshots of the Kaiser and his wife by Lady Ottoline Morrell, taken in Holland, 1932, details to versos, each 8 x 11 cm. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy from Philip Morrell to Kaiser Wilhelm, with extensive annotations written in English by the Kaiser. Together with an autograph postcard signed from Kaiser Wilhelm, Doorn, 1931, to Philip Morrell, written in English in purple pencil across the whole of the back of the postcard beginning "According to your wish expressed in your kind letter I studied the book 'Aristocracy' which treats about everything else except Aristocracy. The author furnishes his readers with a striking example of what may become of man when he eliminates God, Saviour, Bible, Faith and Belief from his life and claps his immortal soul 'under hatches'…". Also with an autograph letter signed from Ottoline Morrell's cousin Count Goddard Bentinck, 21 September 1931, to the author Philip and sending the letter with this copy of the book "which you kindly lent the Emperor, which I hope will reach you safely. His Majesty has written many annotations in it, which I am sure will interest you …" Ottoline Morrell met the Kaiser in Holland when staying with her cousin Count Goddard Bentinck and wrote in her journal: "He enters an exceedingly impressive figure, with a remarkably handsome head, a sailor like body - shorter than I had imagined but the head much finer - very alert and obviously histrionic and vain, but too cultivated and clever to show it…". The Kaiser's annotations in the book reveal his exasperation with the author; he writes several hundred words at the end of chapter 3. When the author talks about natural rulers and what makes them such, the Kaiser's comments in the margins include: "nonsense!", "because they feel it a Heaven imposed task!", "prescribed by the Christian religion!", "based upon the responsibility to Heaven". Where Mairet hopes that "Democracy will be saved", the Kaiser wishes instead: "May it go to hell where it came from." His final comment at the foot of the last page is: "This book is unmitigated, atheistic, spiritual Bolshevism". The cultural critic Philippe Mairet (1886–1975) was hardly the raving Bolshevik of the Kaiser's complaints. In later life he described his allegiances as "Anglican and Royalist". He commented on the drafts of Eliot's Notes Towards the Definition of Culture (1948), which Eliot later dedicated to Mairet "in gratitude and admiration". But over his long career he espoused a number of extremely varied causes, including C. H. Douglas's theory of social credit. The firm of C. W. Daniel published many books that promoted vegetarian, pacifist, Tolstoyan ideals. Most of these books were published on a subsidy basis, with the author underwriting the costs of publication, or guaranteeing to buy a set number of copies.
