A well preserved copy of this scarce volume with its even scarcer original dustjacket. Stoddard's warnings about what he saw as unwise U.S. investments in European bonds without, as he saw it, sufficient assurances that the Europeans would "play ball" and follow American economic models. Stoddard was known for his books on what he saw as the "dangers" posed by "colored" peoples to "white " civilization. Born in Brookline, Mass in 1883, Stoddard received his PhD in History from Harvard in 1914 and went on to write numerous books on current affairs and history. He died in 1950.

        Resor utan mål.

      Stockholm, A. Bonniers boktryckeri, 1932. (2),157 s. Häftad. Ryggen med liten reva nederst, minimal fläck och några svaga veck. Fint exemplar. Dedikation till Erik Lindorm "med hälsning och handslag från Harry Martinson". Omslag av Bertil Bull Hedlund. Harry Martinsons första prosabok, efter debuten och genombrottet med diktsamlingarna "Spökskepp" och "Nomad". Poeten, kritikern och tidningsredaktören Erik Lindorm (1889-1941) tillhörde pionjärerna inom den svenska arbetarlitteraturen vilka banade väg för den stora generation arbetarförfattare där Harry Martinson kom att ingå. Som J. Viktor Johansson utrycker det i sin minnesartikel i "Svensk litteraturtidning" 1941: "Med Martin Kochs romaner och Erik Lindorms lyrik fick arbetarvärlden fast fot i vår litteratur". I försäljningskatalogen över Lindorms fina efterlämnade bibliotek återfinns de flesta av Martinsons böcker, dock endast denna med dedikation.

        ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND with THROUGH THE LOOKING-GLASS

      New York: Limited Editions Club, 1932. ONE OF 1,500 COPIES, "Wonderland" SIGNED BY ALICE HARGREAVES, "the original Alice.". 229 x 152 mm. (9 x 6"). Two volumes. Wonderland with an introduction by Henry Seidel Canby; "Looking-Glass" with an introduction by Carl Van Doren. ONE OF 1,500 COPIES, "Wonderland" SIGNED BY ALICE HARGREAVES, "the original Alice." Publisher's elaborately gilt red morocco (for "Wonderland") and matching blue calf (for "Looking-Glass"), both bindings designed by Frederic Warde, each with publisher's (somewhat worn) slipcase that repeats the spine decoration from the volume, encased in a modern gold slipcase. With 94 illustrations by John Tenniel, the 43 illustrations for "Wonderland" re-engraved on wood by Bruno Rollitz, the 51 illustrations in "Looking-Glass" re-engraved by Frederic Warde. Wonderland: Quarto-Millenary 36; Newman & Wiche 36a. "Looking-Glass": Quarto-Millenary 65; Newman & Wiche 65a. A bit of wear to ends of spines, with a small chip to head of one spine and to tail of the other, small spot to flyleaves of one volume, otherwise a fine set internally, quite clean and bright. These attractively-produced private press copies of two of the best-loved works of children's literature represent the only editions to be signed by the girl for whom they were written, Alice Liddell Hargreaves (1852-1934). Alice was the daughter of Henry Liddell, dean of Christ Church, Oxford, where Charles Dodgson was a lecturer in mathematics. Dodgson, whose hobby was photography, frequently photographed Alice and her sisters and became a close family friend, playing games with, and making up stories for, the children. According to DNB, it was on a picnic on 4 July 1862 that "he invented the story of Alice in Wonderland. The real Alice was then aged ten and pleaded with him to write Alice's adventures down for her, which he carefully did, supplying his own illustrations, in a green notebook that has become one of the most cherished literary manuscripts in the British Library." Over the years, Alice steadfastly refused requests to sign copies of other editions of the two works. But, late in her life, and prompted by a significant monetary inducement ($1.50 per signature), she was prevailed upon to sign volumes from both of the present editions. She did not, in fact, sign all of the copies of these printings (subscribers not willing to pay a surcharge did not get an autographed copy). "Quarto Millenary" estimates that Hargreaves signed about 1,200 copies of "Wonderland," and Newman & Wiches says that only about 500 of "Looking-Glass" were signed. Our volume owes its appeal in large measure to the taste and skill of typographer and designer Frederic Warde (1894-1939), whose lovely italic hand graces the colophon here. Perhaps best known for developing the elegant italic font Arrighi, Warde began his career as a printer with the house of William Edwin Rudge, later supervised the legendary Officina Bodoni, and later still did work for several American private presses, including Crosby Gaige and, of course, the Limited Editions Club.

        KING KONG (In the Original Dust Jacket)

      GROSSET AND DUNLAP 1932 - First photoplay edition of KING KONG, with its scarce near fine original dust jacket. Published by Grosset and Dunlap, 1932. Conceived by Edgar Wallace and Merian Cooper. This was the novelization of the screenplay and is considered to be the rarest of the photoplay editions. The book was published slightly before the film was released. The book without the original jacket can be found in prices ranging from $400 to $800 (depending on condition), yet examples of this book in a similar condition original dust jacket sells for $9000 and up. It is the rarity and collectibility of the jacket which distinguishes the pricing, with the jacket having 15x the value of the actual book. This is the result of the jacket being both fragile, in addition to that dust jackets at the time were intended to be discarded as they were considered as mere advertisements, so as a result relatively few are left available. The original lavishly painted King Kong jacket art is collectible in it¿s own right, with the background mixing the New York setting with the dinosaurs of Skull Island. This book comes with the scarce near fine original dust jacket. The book is in beautiful condition with crisp lime green cloth boards, with strong unfaded deep chocolate brown titles to front and spine. The boards have some very slight toning, with a minuscule red speak to the front. The book has sharp corners with no edgewear but for one tiny upper very tip of one corner. The end papers depict scenes from the photoplay and are clean with no bookplates, no tears, and no stains. The internal pages are clean, with two pages of faded handling marks, otherwise no marks, no stains, no foxing, and appears as unread. The boards have a touch of very slight rubbing to bottom corner tips. The deep chocolate top stain applied by the publisher to the top of the page block is strong and unfaded. A beautiful, clean book. The value of this book is in the near fine original dust jacket. The jacket has strong vibrant, vivid colors with but some typical fading to the spine only. This in itself is most unusual as this jacket was very prone to fading, and of the few remaining original jackets having survived, many are found with faded front and rear panels as well as faded spines. The dust jacket has benefited from some restoration to the spine ends, and an intact tear along the fold, by an expert paper conservator and presents as a near fine example. The jacket has no rips, no chips, no tears, no rubbing, no stains (even the flaps are clean and bright), and no foxing. The reverse side of the jacket has the requisite text ads listing the Grosset and Dunlap publications. Stunning, handsome jacket presenting the book beautifully on the shelf. The dust jacket is protected in a new clear removeable archival cover. Extremely Scarce title in collectible condition. Classic rare book. ADDITIONAL 15 IMAGES AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.

        Oxted, Limpsfield and Neighbourhood

      Oxted, Surrey: W. & G. Godwin, Caxton House, 1932. With Six Head or Tail-Pieces by Arthur Rackham. [RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. FRY, Lewis G., editor. Oxted, Limpsfield and Neighbourhood. Printed at Oxted, Surrey by W. & G. Godwin, Caxton House, 1932. First and only edition. Octavo (9 1/8 x 5 15/16 inches; 233 x 151 mm.). [1-10], 11-144, [5], [1, blank] pp. Six head or tail-pieces by Arthur Rackham. In addition there are four photographic plates, two folding maps, one folding plan, and six full-page illustrations, five by Arthur Keen and one by R.H. Yates as well as a vignette tail-piece on p. 45. Publisher's grey-blue linen over slate green boards , front cover pictorially printed in black. Spine very slightly faded, neat ink signature on front fly-leaf, otherwise a near fine copy of a very scarce Rackham title. This is only the third copy that we have seen in over fifty years. The Rackham illustrations appear on the following pages: [6], 14, 30, 32, 131, and 140. Limpsfield, Surrey, was where Arthur Rackham spent his final years from 1929 to his death in 1939. "By 1929 it had become necessary for the Rackhams to leave Houghton House, partly because Mrs. Rackham's health was now to precarious for her to be able to cope with servant problems in the old-fashioned farm house, and partly because Rackham had reluctantly decided that he was no longer justified in keeping up two establishments, and believed that he would not need to do so if he lived nearer London. In fact, however, he did not dispose of 6, Primrose Hill Studios until 1938, a year before his death. He now built a house in an attractive situation on the Common at Limpsfield, Surrey, close to the golf course on which he often played. Stilegate was comfortable, easy to run; the garden was delightful; but neither Rackham nor his family were entirely happy there. Rackham naturally missed the surroundings he had loved at Houghton - the rambling old house with its barns and outhouses, the winding Arun, the wooded hills, the Amberley quarry, the beech tree with its knobbly twisted roots, the magnificent elm, the Elizabethan cottages facing his garden wall - all preserved, here and there, for those who can recognize them, in his drawings of the nineteen-twenties. Limpsfield had a suburban conventionality that Rackham grew to dislike. His new neighbours, friendly enough, were mostly wealthy business men lacking interest in the arts, with certain exceptions including Edward and Margaret Pease, the well-known founder-Fabians and socialists, and his old friends the Keen family…" (Derek Hudson. Arthur Rackham His Life and Work, pp. 129-130). Riall, p. 178; Hudson, p. 176; Hamilton, p. 189.
