Housed in the publisher's matching slipcase with matching limitation number."The style of work for a series of poems published by Harrap and Sons in the early thirties returned unashamedly to the early style. These books were The Night Before Christmas (1931), The King Of The Golden River (1932), Goblin Market (1933) and The Pied Piper of Hamelin (1934). (Gettings, p. 161)."For the next three years Rackham and Harrap had a successful arrangement whereby two Rackham books, a long one and a shorter one, were published together annually. Thus in 1931, they brought out Walton's The Compleat Angler and Clement Moore's poem The Night Before Christmas. The limited edition of the latter sold out promptly."

        Duineser Elegien. Elegies from the Castle of Duino

      London: The Hogarth Press,, 1931. Translated from the German by V. Sackville-West and Edward Sackville-West. Octavo. Original half vellum, tan cloth sides, titles to spine gilt, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. With the dust jacket. Woodcut initials by Eric Gill. Slight tanning along bottom edge of boards and spine, very slight spotting to edges and a few end-leaves, an excellent copy in the jacket that is tanned and dust soiled, somewhat rubbed and spotted, but still entirely intact. First edition, first impression, number V of an estimated ten paper copies not for sale (aside from a signed limited edition of 238 signed copies, of which eight were printed on vellum), this printed for Vita Sackville-West herself, and inscribed on the front free endpaper, "John Heygate, from V.S.W.". The writer John Heygate (1903?-1976) was one of the Bright Young People, notable for his affair with Evelyn Gardener while she was married to Evelyn Waugh. Heygate married Gardner (after her subsequent divorce) in the year before the publication of this book. He is portrayed as John Beaver in A Handful of Dust. The inscription to Heygate of Rilke's elegies is rendered more appropriate by his close relationship with Germany: he had travelled to Heidelberg in 1926 for the Foreign Office, and in the following years wrote several books about his visits to Germany, as well as co-writing two films made in Germany and starring Lilian Harvey ("The Only Girl (Ich und die Kaiserin)" 1934, and "Black Roses (Schwarze Rosen)" 1935), while working for the Gaumont-British Picture Corporation in collaboration with the German UFA film company, Babelsberg, near Berlin. He was present at the Nuremberg Rally, 1935, in the company of his friend Henry Williamson, sitting next to Unity and Diana Mitford. In spite of his political sympathies he served in the Royal Artillery during the Second World War.

Berlin: Neuer Deutscher Verlag, 1931. |~||~||~||~||~| From 1930 to 1938 Heartfield provided photomontages that were published in the Arbeiter-Illustrierte Zeitung.

One of only 500 copies printed, 80 of which perished when the binder's warehouse was destroyed in the London Blitz of October 1940. Without the publication of this book the work of Johann Hofzinser, considered the father of modern card magic, might well have been forgotten.

Foxing to edges and endpapers; an excellent copy in the faded and slightly soiled jacket with some nicks and chips to extremities. First UK edition, first impression.

Charles Fort (1874–1932) was an American writer and researcher into examples of the occult, supernatural, and paranormal. Today, the terms Fortean and Forteana are used to characterize such anomalous occurences, and the International Fortean Organisation and the Fortean Times remain devoted to the phenomena he studied. The publisher's retained copy with a few minor annotations to the dust jacket and their stamp to the front panel of the dust jacket and the front pastedown. Scarce in the dust jacket.
