        American Earth

Trivial offsetting from jacket design onto spine cloth, else a Fine, fresh copy in an about Fine jacket with a few tiny nicks at crown. Hanna 563. Flora and Bain, pp. 89, 94. Caldwell's first commercially published book (his third overall). The legendary Maxwell Perkins (Fitzgerald's editor at Scribner's) helped to edit this collection of new and previously published stories about rural life in the Deep South and in Maine, with a third section made up of a long, modernist, autobiographical prose poem called The Sacrilege of Allen Kent. The book was well-received critically (according to Flora and Bain, "Although all of his [Caldwell's] story collections contain interesting pieces, nowhere does he surpass the achievement of American Earth . . . "), and Perkins urged Caldwell to try writing a novel focusing on the rural South, which Caldwell knew best. Caldwell traveled Wrens, Georgia, and found inspiration helping his father deliver food and medical supplies to the poor tenant farmers and sharecroppers there. The result was Tobacco Road. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

The themes of the novella (the question of genius, the impossibility of creating a perfect masterpiece, the relationship between the artist and his models) were familiar to Picasso, who at the time was living in the very house in the rue des Grands Augustins where Balzac's novella was set.

        The World Crisis 1911-1918, finely bound

      London: Thornton Butterworth, Ltd., 1931. First abridged and revised edition. Hardcover. This is a finely bound British first edition, first printing of the first Abridged & Revised edition of The World Crisis. Originally published in six volumes between 1923 and 1931, The World Crisis is Winston Churchill's epic history of the First World War, in which he played such a critical, controversial, and varied role. Frederick Woods wrote: "The volumes contain some of Churchill's finest writing, weaving the many threads together with majestic ease, describing the massive battles in terms which fitly combine relish of the literary challenge with an awareness of the sombre tragedy of the events." Churchill was in a special position to write this history, having served both in the Cabinet and on the Front. First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 until 1915, after the failure in the Dardanelles and the slaughter at Gallipoli, Churchill was scapegoated and forced to resign. He spent his political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Before war's end, Churchill was exonerated and rejoined the Government, but the stigma would linger. Churchill may have meant for his history of the First World War to clear his name, but his six volume masterwork far exceeds this purpose. This important edition is not just an abridgement; it incorporates revisions by Churchill with new material, including a whole new chapter on the Battle of the Marne, as well as a new introduction. There were three printings – in 1931, 1932, and 1937. This copy marries 1931 first printing contents to a fine binding executed in dark reddish-brown half leather over marbled paper-covered boards. The binding features raised and gilt decorated spine bands, spine compartments either gilt printed or with gilt decoration, double blind rule transitions, generous leather corners, and watermarked, laid paper endpapers. Condition of the binding is better than very good plus, square and tight, the leather supple and unfaded, with sharp corners, bright spine gilt, and only minor scuffs to extremities and the paper-covered boards. The contents are quite clean for the edition. We find no previous ownership marks and no spotting and only minor soiling to the page edges.

      Mineola, NY, September 23, 1931.. 1931.. Very good. - A 3-5/8 inch high by 6-1/2 inch wide envelope illustrated with vignettes of the First Air Mail Flight which took off from Mineola in 1911 and the 1931 equivalent. "Mineola Chamber of Commerce" and the date are stamped in green at the top left and three two cent U.S. postage stamps at right are postmarked with the date and canceled. Addressed to Seymour Halpern in type, the envelope is signed in ink vertically along the left edge "Frank Hitchock / P.M.G. 1911", indicating his position as Postmaster General when that first air mail flight took off in 1911. The envelope is opened and a return address is typed on the flap on the verso. Very good. <p>Chairman of the Republican National Committee from 1908 to 1909, Frank Harris Hitchcock (1867-1935) was Postmaster General of the United States under President Taft from 1909 to 1913. Hitchcock is credited with establishing the first U.S. airmail service and with cracking down on mail fraud.<p><p>The recipient, Queens, New York Republican Congressman Seymour Halpern (1913-1997) started his political career as a campaign aide to New York's powerful mayor Fiorella La Guardia and first served in New York's State Senate for 14 years before seeking a seat in the U.S. Congress. In Albany Halpern sponsored 279 bills that became law, including measures on schools, housing, civil rights, nutrition and mental health. A Liberal, he was something of an anomaly as the lone Republican representative from New York City, and generally garnered support from Labor Unions and endorsement from the Liberal Party. Yet he never even considered switching parties as he considered membership in the Republican Party a family tradition and commitment. While he found ample time for his private pursuits, including painting and collecting autographs, he took his legislative duties very seriously. Of these, he was proudest of his co- sponsorship of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and of the original 1965 Medicare legislation.

        THE WAVES

      Hogarth Press, London, UK 1931 - States on Copyright Page: first published in 1931 - Considered by many to be her masterpiece, this novel contributed to the solid establishment of Woolf's reputation and her place as one of the "principal exponents of Modernism." - "The Waves" evidences Woolf's literary innovations, e.g. stream of consciousness and complex weaving of the characters' lives. This novel describes the lives of a group of friends, from childhood to later life. The speech pattern of the characters' utterances is undifferentiated and yet, "their individuality is presented through a highly patterned sequence of recurring phrases and images, and what we learn of their daily lives. we learn obliquely." The text is divided by sections of lyrical prose, depicting the rising and setting sun over the shoreline and the waves. This is the most profound and poetic of all her works. CONDITION & DESCRIPTION: A beautiful facsimile dustjacket accompanies this book. Designed by the author's famous sister:Vanessa Bell. Price of 8s. 6d. net to inner prelim. The dustjacket is housed in a plastic protective, archival sleeve. Purple cloth with gilt/gold lettering to the spine which is perfectly legible but the purple colour has faded completely oin the spine. Tears to cloth edges top and bottom of spine also. Unevenly Faded , mainly to the spine and edges of boards front and rear. Fraying and bumping to corners, and top and bottom of spine. Remains firmly bound to inner page block. - Interestingly, this book has a number of paste-ins: The first one is of a young Virginia Woolf [Nee; Stephen] pasted on to the very first blank end-page. She looks about 12 years old in this image. There is some writing to the bottom which states: 'Virginia Woolf Nee Stephen'. It's a faded but beautiful image. - On the reverse of this page, is an image of Virginia when she is about 20 years of age, again, a true beauty of her time. Beneath is a copy of her famous purple signature. [not an original signature - a copy] - She certainly was a very beautiful young woman. - The final image which is pasted on to the very last blank end page is a copy of a newspaper article and tells you about the suicide of Virginia Woolf. It's a terrible tragedy and a loss to literature. - Very foxed throughout, apart from this, the pages are clean and tightly bound. You can also see that the pages are still 'springy' from the images that accompany. - Our orders are shipped within 1 or 2 business days. - Thanks for your interest.

        DIALOGUES OF PLATO Translated Into English With Analyses and Introduction by B[enjamin] Jowett

      Oxford Oxford University Press 1931 - 5 volumes. The third edition, new impression. 8vo, publisher&#146;s original maroon polished cloth lettered and decorated in gilt on the spines and stamped in blind with panel designs on the covers, each volume housed in the rare dustjackets. xxxvii, 594; 576; ccxxxi, 543; 645; ccxxxviii, 541 pp. A very fine set, fresh and clean and very handsome withal, the cloth protected by the dustjackets and thus unusually bright and especially well preserved, essentially as pristine, the jackets just a bit mellowed by age and still in quite excellent condition with just some very minor edge-wear occasionally evident. A HIGHLY IMPORTANT WORK AND the best edition of the best translation. Jowett was a great favorite at Oxford University and most famous for his classical translations. Robert Lynd wrote of him in 1925 that "Jowett is one of the few (writers who have the luck to go down to posterity as satellites of the supreme men of genius), and it not likely that for many generations to come English readers will be able to think of Plato without thinking of Jowett&#146;s Plato. He aimed in his translation at producing the effect of an original work." He accomplished this, not at the sake of scholarship or accuracy, and was able to translate the current of life that runs throughout this great masterpiece. These are considered to be by far the best translations of Plato's DIALOGUES. This revised edition contains a new general Preface which recounts the history of the work and gives some appreciation of Jowett's involvement in the study of Plato. As well, there is marginal analysis and an index of subjects and proper names. The sequence of the Dialogues has been changed, and there are other minor changes of form, and textually very few alterations were made but for important corrections and additions.

        La Reine du cuir verni &#150; Tome I : Les Trois Grâces du cuir verni

      Sélect-Bibliothèque 1931 - Orné de 8 illustrations hors-texte d&#146;ESBEY. Sélect-Bibliothèque, Sceaux (Seine), 1931, Volume 65. In-12 broché, 12 x 18,5 cm. 156 pp. 4 ff. de catalogue. Couv. illustrée par ESBEY. Titre n° 65 de la l&#146;étonnante collection de la Sélect-Bibliothèque (1904 &#150; 1939). De toutes les maisons d&#146;éditions spécialisées dans la flagellation, ce fut celle qui prit le plus de liberté, abandonnant souvent les traditionnels châtiments corporels pour aborder des thématiques purement fétichistes, le travestissement de jeunes garçons et quelques « aberrations sexuelles » très bizarres. Il est d&#146;usage d&#146;attribuer la quasi-totalité des textes publiés au romancier flagellant Roland Brévannes, dont les pseudonymes anagrammatiques de Don Brennus Aléra et de Bernard Valonnes sont également utilisés pour plusieurs romans de la Select. Il s&#146;agit de la suite des aventures de la jeune Raymonde de Charney, mise en pension à la « Jeune Infante », aristocratique école de jeunes filles de Passy qui était décrite dans L&#146;Esclave du cuir verni (cf. Les Asservies VI). Le lecteur retrouve l&#146;atmosphère hautement saphique qui règne parmi ces étudiantes « travaillées par le démon du cuir verni ». Un démon qui pousse les unes à la domination, les autres à la soumission : « Raymonde allongea son pied de telle façon que les reflets éclatants du cuir verni vinssent attirer l&#146;attention de Lucienne. La brune se troubla, rougit, passa sur ses lèvres à la pulpe juteuse une langue humide. Un même désir se glissait à la fois dans les veines des deux amies. La maîtresse n&#146;avait pas besoin d&#146;ordonner : l&#146;esclave était prête à la suivre et à aller au devant de ses désirs. » Mais la souveraineté de Raymonde, qui s&#146;étendait sur tout le pensionnat, va être ébranlée par l&#146;arrivée de Mlle Simone, nouvelle maîtresse de chant et de danse. C&#146;est une femme voluptueuse, dont la taille est affinée par une large et fascinante ceinture, partage la même adoration fétichiste que celle des deux élèves. Folles de désir, grisées par les miroitements du cuir verni, elles s&#146;enivrent toutes les trois de caresses et de baisers. Entre Raymonde et Simone, deux natures autoritaires, un combat commence, tout en audaces charnelles et en subtiles provocations. Laquelle des deux saura assez maîtriser ses émotions pour mieux dominer l&#146;autre ? Le hiératisme, la raideur des corps dessinés par « Esbey » convient merveilleusement à ce trio fétichiste. Edition originale. Satisfaisant. Il manque le second plat, remplacé par un papier d&#146;attente. Le premier plat original a été contrecollé sur un papier d&#146;attente et un film transparent consolide le dos. Cette restauration a été effectuée avec le plus grand soin. Page de faux-titre salie, intérieur très bon, complet des 8 hors-texte. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Mise en Page - The Theory and Practice of Lay-Out.

      The Studio, London. 1931 - First U.K. edition. No translator given. Quarto. Unpaginated. Cloth-backed boards with art deco design. The book is largely devoted to pictorial examples of the history and modern-day use of composition for publicity purposes. Within a firmly art deco aesthetic the fifteen plates are created by means of a variety of techniques: overlay, collage, different papers, etc. The text itself is presented (in English) in a typographically witty way and is built around a wide-ranging selection of illustrations. At the end the text is printed in its original French. The book was printed in France by the author.There is some offsetting from a couple of plates onto the facing pages; this seems inevitable given the techniques used in their production. The last plate, a modified aerial photograph of the Arc de Triomphe, is torn and repaired on the reverse. Covers rubbed at the edges. Very good. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Grammaire du Vieux Perse [Collection Linguistique, XXXIV]

      Librairie Ancienne Honoré Champion, Paris 1931 - Quarto. XXIII, [1], 266pp. Library blue cloth with gold lettering on spine. Original printed wrappers bound in. Originally published in 1915, Antoine Meillet's grammar of the Old Persian language (Grammaire du Vieux Perse) provides an exact description of this language as attested in the then available texts. In this excellent work, Meillet tried to demonstrate how the comparative method of historical linguistics can help describe a language, the subsystems of which are known only in part. Therefore notes of a comparative nature were inserted only wherever they might contribute to the explanation of a textual passage. Thus Meillet dealt essentially with the main characteristics of the phonological and morphological aspects of the language, confining himself to those forms which are attested authentically and could be interpreted with a degree of certainty. By this he also made clear which problems had not yet been solved and which linguistic facts were not yet established with sufficient dependability. In 1931, Emile Benveniste (1902-76), French scholar, eminent Iranist, and one of the greatest linguists of his time, published this new edition, revised and enlarged, of Meillet's "Grammaire du Vieux Perse", a work rendered necessary by the progress of research. Ex-library copy with reference number at tail of spine, and stamp at front free endpaper and upper margin of title. Upper corner of pages slightly bumped. Pages slightly age-toned throughout. Text in French. Binding and interior in overall good+ condition. Second edition completely revised and greatly expanded. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
