        Cranach Presse, Song of Songs] CANTICUM CANTICORUM SALOMONIS QUOD HEBRAICE DICITUR SIR HASIRIM

      Weimar: Cranach Presse, 1931. Limited Edition, number 120 of 200 copies on paper.. Vellum Binding. Very Good dust jacket. Slim Quarto. Eric Gill. Bound as issued in vellum backed boards with vellum tipped corners; title stamped in gold on the spine; plain paper wrapper and slipcase are gently shelfworn; printed in black with red titles and headers in Jenson Antigua type with Gill's illustrations and initials throughout; very light and even foxing. Single bifolium, “Former Publications of the Cranach Presse, Weimar” is laid in. Publications in this announcement include The Ecologues of Virgil, Hamlet, and The Duinese Elegies. While a German press, the English tradition and talents were very much at work in the Cranach Press. Count Harry Kessler employed Emery Walker and Edward Johnson, giants of the private press movement as advisors. Additionally, notable pressmen J. H. Mason and H. Gage-Cole from the Doves Press were put to work for Kessler. As Hitler came to power in Germany and Europe crept towards the Second World War Kessler's left-leaning politics made his life in Germany increasingly untenable. While he had other work planned for the Press, he abandoned it in the early 1930s. This is among the last books produced. In his survey of private presses, Roderick Cave calls this one of three “superb” books issued by the Cranach Presse, “in the grand tradition in which neither time nor cost was important.” Hunter and Kelly in A Century of the Century call it “a graceful, exquisite coda to thw work of a great modern press.” Ransom 10; Cave 146-7, Artist and the Book 121, Hunter and Kelly 29.

        The Good Earth

      London: Methuen & Co., 1931. First British edition of the author's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel and masterpiece. Octavo, original light brown cloth. Signed by Pearl Buck on the title page. Near fine in the rare dust jacket which shows light wear to the extremities and some minor professional restoration. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Rare signed. Over ninety 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.

        GUYS AND DOLLS

      Frederick A. Stokes Company, 1931., 1931. First edition. Fine and extremely bright, clean copy lacking the very rare dust jacket. Introduction by Heywood Broun. Damon Runyon (1888-1946) wrote many excellent short stories in which much that went on was on the wrong side of the law. In this book there are thirteen short stories where the characters live in the area of show business, gambling, fashion, etc. and meet in the world of crime and felony. Queen's Quorum 84 says, "...... the reader meets a choice collection of cheap chiselers, chippie chasers, and cheesecake chewers --- or to put it differently, the Runyon guys and dolls are Broadway banditti, metropolitan mobsters, Gotham gunmen, and Times Square thugs. The great modern interpreter of The Main Stem, however, leavened his tales of passion and violence with a unique type of humor which can only be described as New York Runyonese." A Haycraft/Queen Cornerstone mystery title and a Queen's Quorum selection. An exceptional copy of an elusive book.

        India

      London: Thornton Butterworth Ltd., 1931. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Near fine. This is the first edition, first printing, hardcover binding, in the exceptionally rare dust jacket. India is a collection of 10 speeches by Churchill as part of his campaign against the India Bill, over which he broke with his party’s leadership. Though his cause was lost, these speeches are considered to contain some of the finest examples of Churchill's rhetorical brilliance. Churchill spent formative time as a young 19th century cavalry officer fighting on the northwest Indian frontier, about which he would write his first published book. He did not adopt an early progressive attitude toward relinquishing control over the crown jewel of Britain's colonial empire. Nonetheless, it is instructive to remember that many of Churchill's dire warnings about Indian independence proved prophetic. Churchill had warned that too swift a British withdrawal from India would lead to bloody civil war and sectarian strife between Hindus and Muslims, Hindu domination, and destabilizing political balkanization of the subcontinent. All these predictions came to pass and, to a considerable extent, persist today. The first edition is most commonly found in orange paper wraps. A much rarer variant was issued in a hardcover binding. Hardcover first editions were issued in a striking orange dust jacket that ranks among the rarest dust jackets in the Churchill canon. Here is beautiful, near-fine plus copy in the original dust jacket. The coarse cloth orange cloth binding of the scarce hardcover edition proved highly susceptible to both soiling and sunning. Hence it is obvious when one of the few surviving dust jackets is "married" to a previously unjacketed copy. Owing to its dust jacket, this example is a stunning survivor. The binding remains square, clean, and vividly bright, with sharp corners and virtually no wear. A hint of soiling at the spine ends corresponds to dust jacket losses, but even there remains distinctly brighter than any unjacketed copies we see. The contents remain bright with a crisp feel, showing no spotting or previous ownership marks. The page edges show mild age-toning and just a few barely discernible instances of spotting. The dust jacket retains bright faces and suffers only moderate spine toning, but does show age and wear. The rear face is complete apart from a small triangular loss at the upper edge. The spine has a trivial strip loss at the tail, a .5 inch long loss at the lower front hinge, and shallow loss at the spine head to a maximum depth of approximately .25 inch. The spine head loss extends into a .75 x .75 inch triangular loss at the upper front face. The front face also shows diagonal scratches, extending from the upper front hinge to the lower front corner, with some closed tears and narrow losses associated, affecting part of the second "E" in "SPEECHES BY" and the "H" in CHURCHILL. We also note minor wear and chip losses to the upper front edge and front flap fold. Nonetheless, a substantially complete example of a very rare dust jacket which has done its job protecting the superlative volume beneath. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A92.1.b, Woods/ICS A38(a), Langworth p.150.

        The War in the Air,

      London: Oxford University Press,, 1931-9. being the Story of the Part played in the Great War by the Royal Air Force. 9 volumes octavo, including 2 map-cases. Text volumes in original dark blue buckram, the map-cases are modern copies of the originals, titles gilt to the spines, all of the text volumes, including the Appendices with the dust jackets. Numerous folding maps, 70 of them in the separate map-cases, many in colour. Jackets a little tanned at the spines and with mild crumpling head and tail, but overall very good indeed. All are first editions, apart from volume I, originally published in 1922, which is a second impression "reprinted photographically … from the corrected sheets of the first edition" (imprint). These corrections not noted by Wells. "The first volume of the official Air History … goes outside its subject so far as to deal, in fascinating manner, with the pioneers of aerial navigation … It was an experiment to put an official history of a highly technical subject into the hands of a university professor, however fine a writer; but it must be said that as an experiment it largely succeeded" (Falls). This volume was to be his longest work, " his first experience of writing history on a large scale, and he stated in his preface that 'The writer of this history has endeavoured to make his narrative intelligible to those who, like himself, are outsiders'. His style is here at its simplest, but the fervour of his admiration for the heroism of the air is everywhere apparent and finds memorable expression in the introduction" (ODNB). Raleigh set out to the Middle East to undertake research on volume II, contracted typhoid "when his aeroplane was marooned for four or five days in the desert between Jerusalem and Baghdad", and died a few weeks before the publication of volume I. The writing of the history was taken over by D.G. Hogarth, who was "compelled by ill-health to abandon it" (Falls), the mantle then fell upon Capt. H.A. Jones, head of the Air Historical Section, who completed the task. Falls remarked on the second volume, which was to hand before publication of his War Books: "From the technical point of view it is declared by good authorities to be superior to its predecessor. From the literary point of view it certainly does not disgrace the companion volume. It is altogether a very fine piece of work", and awarded it three stars, reserved by him for books of "superlative merit", and grudgingly granted. A very good set of this much admired history.
