        The Real McCoy

      Doubleday Doran & Company Garden City: Doubleday, Doran & Company. 1931. First. First edition. Fine in near fine dustwrapper but for a small chip on the spine. "The true story of Captain Bill McCoy of the Tomoka, the founder of Rum Row and King of Rum Runners." Inscribed by the subject of the book: "To Bob Davis, the man who suggested that this yarn be put in print. Bill McCoy." McCoy was probably the most famous of the rum runners, who would bring liquor to the edge of American territorial waters and offload it onto small craft in order to elude the authorities. Rum runners were famous for watering the liquor that they illegally imported during Prohibition. McCoy apparently never did so, and handled only high quality brands, hence popularizing the phrase "The Real McCoy." Scarce either signed or in jacket. .

      New York: Jonathan Cape & Harrison Smith,, 1931. Octavo. Original grey cloth backed burgundy boards, titles to spine in red, top edge dyed black. With the dust jacket. Bookseller's ticket to rear pastedown. Pale spot to tail of spine. An excellent copy in the lightly rubbed jacket with dampstain to the upper panel and a chip from the tail of the spine and the upper panel affecting the author's name. Second printing. Inscribed by the author on the half-title, "To Jimmy Stone, William Faulkner, Las Angeles, Cal, 16 April, 1936". Jimmy Stone was the brother of Phil Stone, one of Faulkner's early mentors who helped him type and submit work to literary magazines. Jimmy was extravagant and often in financial trouble from which his mother rescued him; Phil told the critic Carvel Collins that he was one of the prototypes for the character Jason Compson in The Sound and the Fury. An excellent association.

        Mount Zion

      London, The James Press,, [1931]. Or In touch with the infinite. Octavo. Original blue and yellow floral patterned paper boards, white paper title label to upper board printed in blue, contents printed in red and blue on blue and pink paper, patterned endpapers. Illustrated with drawings and decorative surrounds. Light traces of tape residue to endpapers from an old protective cover, tips minimally rubbed but an outstanding copy and very uncommon thus. First Edition, First Impression of the author's first book. Produced with typical flair by the poet and patron of arts Edward James, this wonderful little book could scarcely have been more fitting in tone as herald of the arrival of Betjeman, whom James had befriended at Oxford. The scarcer of the two simultaneous bindings.

También incluye entrevistas, biografías, reportajes y artículos sobre teatro, cine, consumo, deportes, religión, con una sección dedicada exclusivamente a la apologética, cuentos y poemas. Su primera página siempre está dedicada al artículo doctrinal, firmado por Pemán, Víctor Pradera (1873-1936) o el Marqués de Lozoya (1893-1978), y los de política ocupan un gran espacio en la publicación, que hasta las elecciones de noviembre de 1933 es afín a la CEDA.

Destaca en una publicación dirigida a mujeres la participación y colaboración de Blanca de los Ríos Lampérez (1862-1956); María López Sagredo, dirigente de Defensa Femenina; la ingeniero industrial católico-monárquica Pilar Careaga (1908-1993);Teresa Luzatti, de Juventud Católica Femenina; la redactora y propagandista de Acción Nacional, Pilar Velasco Aranaz, así como María Rosa Urraca Pastor, María de Madariaga, Cristina de Arteaga, la doctora Rosario Rodríguez, Francisca Bohigas, María San José, Clara Frías y Honorata Maura. De 16 páginas, está ilustrada con fotografías y dibujos de María Luisa Pérez Herrero, Rafael Fernández Cuevas y Manuel Pedrós. Sus artífices también utilizaron seudónimos, como El magistral de Burgos, Boy, Gil Bare, Curro Vargas y Oscar. Pemán en sus artículos propagó la política del fascismo italiano y la persecución de los judíos del régimen hitleriano alemán. No sufrió la suspensión tras la intentona golpista de agosto de 1932 y se publicó hasta 1936. (54699).
