        VANDALS OF THE VOID

      London,: John Hamilton Ltd.. Bound in original blue cloth with black spine lettering. ND (1931). 1st edition. hb. Small 8vo, pp. 288. . James Morgan Walsh (1897-1952) was born in Australia, and emigrated to England in 1925. He was a prolific writer of mysteries, using the pseudonyms of H. Haverstock Hill, Stephen Maddock, and George M. White. Hubin lists 56 titles published from 1925 to 1951. This, apparently, is his only science fiction title (Bleiler, "The Check-List of Science-Fiction and Fantasy"; Reginald, "Science Fiction and Fantasy Literature: A Check-List, 1700-1974"). It was first published in Hugo Gernsback's "Wonder Stories Quarterly" in 1931 (Vol. 2, No. 4), and should not be confused with the 1953 title of the same name by American sci-fi author Jack Vance. John Hamilton Ltd. published it as a title in their "Sundial Mystery Library" series presumably because Walsh was then known as a writer of mysteries - not science fiction. It is a very rare title, and one of the high points for Australian science-fiction collectors (See Blackford, Ikin, McMullen, "Strange Constellations, A History of Australian Science Fiction"), who describe it as a "dashing space opera". This title was reprinted in 1976 by Hyperion, with a new introduction. WorldCat lists only seven institutional holdings of the original edition: six in the U.S. and one in the U.K. The only auction listings are for the Jack Vance title (1993 and 1994): one may reasonably presume that this title has never before been offered for sale by auction. Our copy shows very little shelf wear. The endpapers are clean and tight, and there are no former owner's markings. Overall, it is in very good condition. No dust jacket. .

        Ein Ghetto im Osten. Wilna. 65 Bilder von M. Vorobeichic, eingeleitet von S. Chnéour

      Orell Fussli Verlag, Zurich, Leipzig 1931 - Original orange and black publisher's photo-illustrated boards. First edition of Vorobeichic's pre-WWII photo-essay on Lithuanian Jews, with 65 black-and-white photographic images and photocollages. Lithuanian-born photographer Moshé Raviv-Vorobeichic trained at the Bauhaus in the 1920s and after studying at the École de Photo Ciné in Paris, returned to visit his family and photographed life in the Jewish community of Vilnius, Lithuania¿s capital. The result was Ein Ghetto im Osten, Wilna. A poignancy has been added in hindsight since it was made at the beginning of a desperate time for European Jewry. With preface by poet Zalman Chnéour in both Yiddish and German. "In the same year that his Paris was published, Moï Ver - under his real name of Moshé Vorobeichic- produced Ein Ghetto im Osten (A Ghetto in the East). Even more so than Paris, Ein Ghetto im Osten was ostensibly a documentary book, but as he had done in his view of the French city, Moï Ver once again used a variety of New Vision strategies, the most obvious being to take many images from upstairs windows looking on to the narrow streets of Vilnius's old Jewish quarter. This creates odd angles and a dynamic mise en scène for his pictures of people going about their everyday business on the street. He also introduced cinematic cutting and montaging techniques to heighten the interest. 7 pages in German, 64 leaves of photos, 7 pages in Yiddish. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

With the dust jacket. Portrait frontispiece. Contemporary ownership inscription. Spine a little faded, some partial fading to cloth sides, rubbing to ends and corners, partial toning to endpapers, still a very good copy in the spine-tanned, somewhat dust soiled, lightly marked jacket with small chips and tears to edges and corners.

This edition, newly edited by Edmund Blunden, contains previously unpublished pieces, and is uncommon in the dust jacket. This copy derives, though without his ownership inscription, from the collection of Rolf O. Barber, who was a schoolteacher at Oundle and tutored Sassoon's son George.

        LAST AND FIRST MEN: A STORY OF THE NEAR AND FAR FUTURE

      New York: Jonathan Cape and Harrison Smith,. [1931]. Octavo, pp. [i-iv] v [vi] vii-ix [x] xi [xii] xiii-xvi 1-371 [372: blank],. original purple cloth, all panels ruled in blind, spine panel stamped in gold, top edge stained black, fore and bottom edges rough trimmed.. Private owner's bookplate affixed to front paste-down. A fine copy in. fine pictorial dust jacket (designed by Arthur Hawkins). A stunning. copy of a very handsome book. (#114650). First U.S. edition, first binding. "The author's first work of fiction, inaugurating those anatomies of the future that blend romance and philosophy, spectacle and prophecy, cosmological in scope, teleological in tone, for which the term 'novel' is wholly misleading. With its telescopic focus, the Stapledonian romance eschews characters and dialogue, replacing them with Man and Evolution. The half-century to come, as predicted by the author in his foreword, would indeed be critical, coinciding with the high watermark of those social engineering schemes that seemed so congruent with the kind of utopian visions emblazoned here." - Robert Eldridge. "... one of the most remarkable imaginative works in the field of futuristic fiction: an account of human development during the next hundreds of millions of years." - Clarke, Tale of the Future (1978), p. 58. "On his own terms, Stapledon is unequaled, and he certainly has been one of the major influences on contemporary science fiction." - Survey of Science Fiction Literature III, pp. 1140-43. "LAST AND FIRST MEN and STAR MAKER soar far beyond the accepted limits of science fiction... Stapledon is the great classical example, the cold pitch of perfection as he turns scientific concepts into vast ontological epic prose poems, the ultimate SF writer." - Aldiss, Trillion Year Spree: The History of Science Fiction, p. 198. Stapledon's "influence, both direct and indirect, on the development of many concepts which now permeate genre SF is probably second only to that of H. G. Wells." - Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), pp. 1151-53. Aldiss, Trillion Year Spree: The History of Science Fiction, p. 198. Anatomy of Wonder (1976) 3- 56; (1981) 2-98; (1987) 2-109; (1995) 2-119; and (2004) II-1069. Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 2086. Clareson, Science Fiction in America, 1870s-1930s 718.
