        The Overland Monthly, 1868-1875; The Overland Monthly and Out West Magazine, 1883-1931

      A. Roman & Company; John H. Carmany & Company et al. San Francisco: A. Roman & Company; John H. Carmany & Company [et al.]. (1868-1931). First. Magazine. 93 bound volumes and 40 single issues in wrappers. Octavos and folios. A long run of Overland Monthly, California's most important literary magazine of the 19th and early 20th Century. The set includes a near complete run of the original series from July 1868 until December 1875 (lacking only the January 1870 issue, else complete); and a long, near complete run of the second series from 1883 (when it resumed publication) through 1931. In 1923 it merged with Out West to become Overland Monthly and the Out West Magazine, and changed its format from octavo to folio.Founded and first edited by Bret Harte, Overland Monthly established serious literature and progressive social criticism in the American Far West. It quickly won national and international acclaim as a leading literary force in American letters. Ambrose Bierce, Mark Twain, and Harte contributed sardonic stories and verse, and all manner of informal, highly personal commentary which propelled Harte and the magazine to literary celebrity. The magazine gave rise to a new generation of writers, loosely known as the West Coast Romantics, that included Bierce and Harte, John Muir, Willa Cather, Joaquin Miller, Jack London, George Sterling, and fantasy/science fiction writer Clark Ashton Smith, all of whom contributed to the magazine. Among the many important works featured in this long run is Harte's "The Luck of Roaring Camp," "Dickens in Camp," and "Plain Language from Truthful James," and Bierce's "The Haunted Valley" and "Grizzly Papers," (in five installments). Mark Twain contributed his famous travel log in four installments: "By Rail Through France," and "A Californian Abroad: A Few Parisian Sights; Three Italian Cities; A Mediaeval Romance." Willa Cather's short story "On the Divide" appeared in 1896.Most volumes are bound in full beige or blue cloth. The original series lacks one monthly issue (January 1870), otherwise it is complete in 14 bound volumes (volumes 1-3, and 5-15), with four unbound issues in wraps (February-May, 1870). Volume 3 from 1869 has the original wrappers and supplements bound in. Volumes 1-6 of the second series is incomplete, consisting of 11 unbound single issues in wraps from 1883-1885: (April 1883; January, April, July, August, September, October, and November 1884; January, March, May 1885), then follows a consecutive run of mostly bound volumes 7-89 from 1886-1931 (with 29 single issues from 1921-22 in wrappers). The bound volumes from 1901-1931 have the original wrappers bound in.An ex-library set with bookplates or ink stamps on the front pastedowns. Only two volumes in half calf (from 1895 and 1897) are scuffed and worn, thus good only, about ten volumes and a few single issues in wraps from the 20th Century have some intermittent torn leaves, the volume containing the "San Francisco Fire Number" (May 1906) is split at the gutter with detached leaves, else overall an about very good set. A scarce, large assemblage of many first appearances of important American literary works and articles. A list of notable selections is available. .

        L'ITALIANO, mensile della rivoluzione fascista (direttore LEO LONGANESI) seconda serie 1931-1942 tutto il publicato fasc. 1-70., Bologna, L'Italiano editore, 1931

      L'Italiano viene fondato a Bologna da LONGANESI nel 1926 ed esce prima con cadenza settimanale e poi irregolare. Dopo gli spunti "strapaesani". L. usava più uno stile corrosivo coi suoi fantastici disegnini (e con i suoi proverbiali articoli ed aforismi), mentre i disegni e le didascalie di Maccari erano più espliciti ma tutta la squadra si può dire che facesse una "piccola fronda" che man mano aumentò di intensità (ed anche raffinatezza) all'ombra degli eventi via via più decadenti. Questa serie è formato quaderno e con cadenza mensile, (la numerazione riparte del numero 1 del marzo 1931 e la sequenza non è mai interrotta per concludersi con l'ultimo numero 67-70 del novembre-dicembre 1942) ed è caratterizzata sempre dalle "trovate" di Longanesi e Maccari, (magistrali i loro disegni nei testi e le copertine) con tanti scritti ed illustrazioni sempre geniali e simpatiche; ci sono però anche riproduzioni di disegni artistici (Morandi, Soffici, Cappiello, Lautrec, Mezio, Grandville, Savinio, Groz, Roidin, ecc.) ed anche incredibili foto che da sole valgono un articolo di fondo. Lungo e autorevole è anche l'elenco dei collaboratori letterari-artistici : Ansaldo G., Baldini Antonio, Barilli, Bartolini Luigi, Benedetti Arrigo, Brancati, Buzzati-Traverso, Canova Antonio, Cardarelli, Cecchi, Comisso, Cora Marcello, De Benedetti, De Chirico Giorgio, Furst H., Groz, Kafka (tradotto da Furst, Moravia, Pellizzi Camillo, Praz Mario, Raimondi, Savinio Alberto, Soffici, Soldati , Spadini A., Spagnol Tito, Stella Nera, Tobino Mario, Ungaretti, Volta Sandro ed altri.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED (ALS)

      Letter. Folding crease. Near Fine. Fine one-page letter on Cather's monogrammed printed stationery dated 20 August [n.y.] and SIGNED by Cather at the conclusion. Addressed to Dr. [Henry Goddard] Leach, editor of THE FORUM, regarding an article that appeared on Cather's work in his publication. In full: "Thank you for replying to my telegram, which I am afraid was premature. I have just received from the Knopf office a copy of the estimate of my books published in the September Forum. I wish I might know your personal opinion of the article before I write you. Sincerely yours, Willa Cather." A Cather scholar informed us that this letter is almost certainly from 1931. Granville Hicks had an article in the FORUM in September of that year, ostensibly a review of SHADOWS ON THE ROCK, but mentioning other works in explaining "why she is and always has been a minor artist." Cather's displeasure with the article is clear in the tone of this letter. Her best known book, DEATH COMES FOR THE ARCHBISHOP, was serialized in the very same magazine from January through June in 1927.

        Essai sur la Nature du Commerce en Général

      London: Macmillan & Co., Ltd. For the Royal Economic Society,, 1931. Edited with an English Translation and other material By Henry Higgs, C.B. Octavo (234 × 150 mm). Original publisher's buckram, spine lettered gilt, with the slightly chipped dust jacket. With frontispiece portrait of Cantillon's wife and one plate, a portrait of his daughter. Spine a little faded, the dust jacket a little darkened, an excellent copy. First complete edition in English of Cantillon's masterful analysis of trade and economics, originally published in French in 1755. A partial translation into English was published in 1759, described by Jevons in an article appended here, Richard Cantillon and the Nationality of Political Economy, as "so horribly garbled as to give no idea of the merits of the original work. The so-called Analysis of Trade is a loose translation of portions of the real Essai, omitting usually the best parts of the chapters in order to allow of the insertion of extracts from Hume's Essays, rodomontades about Oliver Cromwell, and other wholly irrelevant matter." (p. 335). The volume also contains an essay on the life and work of Richard Cantillon, by Henry Higgs.

        They Were Still Dancing [in 1st issue dustjacket]

      Jonathan Cape & Harrison Smith, New York 1931 - The first American edition, and first issue, of the book published in England as "Remote People" by Duckworth the same year. Spine cocked, marginal tear to one leaf of text repaired; the dustjacket rather chipped, split and repaired on the verso with archival tape, with a pencil annotation to the front panel: a good copy of the uncommon first issue. Most of the run, unsold at the time of the publisher's dissolution, was issued the next year by Farrar and Rinehart with a cancel title leaf and a new copyright date. The Cape and Smith dustjacket, featuring an order form for other Cape and Smith titles on the rear panel, was not used for the Farrar and Rinehart edition--a new jacket was prepared, based on the same artwork. The first issue jacket seems to be quite scarce. This is not a fine copy by any means, but it is stable and wants a loving home. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        CHARLES WHIBLEY A Memoir

      Oxford University Press 1931 - First edition. A single quire bound in original buff sewn wrappers printed in black. Author's presentation copy, inscribed to Bonamy Dobreé on the upper wrapper, "B.M. from T.S.E.". Wrappers somewhat browned to edges, a very good copy. Bonamy Dobreé (1891-1974) was the only son of a family of wealthy Guernsey bankers. Having distinguished himself at Cambridge after the war, he published a pioneering study of Restoration Comedy in 1924 and immersed himself in the English literary scene, forming acquaintanceships with Pound, Lawrence, and the Bloomsbury Group. It was at one of the Woolfs' parties at Richmond House that he first met Eliot and almost immediately formed a lively friendship. Dobreé became a regular contributor to, and one of Eliot's closest associates at, Criterion. In 1936 Dobreé moved to Leeds where he became Professor of English Literature, a post he maintained until 1955. Dobrée's papers, now at Leeds, show a regular correspondence with Eliot until the latter's death in 1974. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        The World Crisis (first abridged and revised edition)

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1931 - This is the first abridged edition of Churchill's monumental and acclaimed history of World War I in the original first printing dust jacket - one of the most striking and rare dust jackets in the Churchill canon. The front face of the yellow-tan dust jacket features a full-length, half-tone photograph of Churchill striding, in top hat and tails with walking stick in hand. The rear cover features a smaller head and shoulders image of Churchill in the uniform of the South African Light Horse (set amid an advertisement for A Roving Commission). Writing in 1997, Churchill expert Richard Langworth said of this dust jacket "I know of only two or three of these in existence." We know of a few more than that, but certainly only a small number survive and very few collectors are able to own them. This first abridged and revised edition is not simply an abridgement, but a genuine first edition in its own right; Churchill made significant revisions and added a new introduction and an entire new chapter on the Battle of the Marne. Moreover, the U.S. edition preceded the British, making it the true first edition. This copy is very good plus in the dust jacket. The navy cloth binding is square, clean, and tight with sharp corners and bright spine gilt. The only exterior flaw noted is some flaking of the gilt at the lower spine affecting the publisher's name and the gilt rule below. The contents remain clean and bright. We find no previous ownership marks and no internal spotting. All of the extensive maps and charts are present and properly folded. A partial split of the paper at the upper title page gutter is cosmetic only, with the mull beneath fully intact and the contents remaining tight within the binding. We note very light spotting to the page edges. The rare dust jacket is substantially intact but showing overall wear and soiling. The jacket shows minor chipping to a maximum depth of .25 inch at the spine ends and front face. There is wear along the hinges and flap folds, small losses at the flap folds, and overall soiling. The upper front flap is neatly price-clipped, with the original $5 price intact on the spine. A desirable survivor withal. The jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.

        JOURNALS. HOOK And LADDER COMPANY No. 27, New York City Fire Department, The Bronx. # 79: September 8, 1931 - December 22, 1931. # 83: November 25, 1932 - May 4, 1933.

      1931 / 1933, [New York]: 1931 - Hook and Ladder Company No. 27 was originally part of Combined Engine Company 46 - Bronx, which was organized on July 11, 1881. The Company moved to new quarters at 451 E. 176th Street on April 1, 1895. The Combined Engine Company was disbanded in order to organize Engine 46 and Hook and Ladder Company 27 on June 1, 1904. In a NYTimes article of April 18, 1904, it was announced that Fire Commissioner Hayes had established a new Fire Department Battalion in the Bronx, to be known as the Seventeenth. This Battalion included Hook and Ladder Company 27. Hook and Ladder Company 27 was located at 453 E. 176th Street. The Company was relocated to new quarters at 460 Cross Bronx Expressway on November 6, 1972 at which time it was disbanded to organize Ladder 58.The two journals provide an in-depth and fascinating glimpse into the daily operations of one of New York's finest, Hook and Ladder Company No. 27. Noted down to the minute are the times the men came on duty and when they were relieved; when drills took place; inspections; testing of the telegraph equipment; who was on house watch and when he was relieved; exactly when an alarm came in, by what method, and from what station. Certain members of the Company were more complete in their entries stating that the Company and apparatus responded to alarm, where they found the fire and when they returned to the station. A nice set documenting a segment of the NYFD's long illustrious history. As to be expected with volumes put to daily use, the bindings are worn & soiled, with fraying front joint cloth to #79. Nevertheless, an About VG - VG set. Brown pebbled cloth quarter bound with red leather. Pink paper labels with inclusive dates on spines; journal number written in black ink over-written in white ink. 14" x 8-1/2" [36 cm x 23 cm]. 2 volumes. 1000 numbered pages.
