        Brave New World

      London: Chatto and Windus, 1932 First edition, first printing. Publisher's blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt; in the original pictorial dark blue dust jacket, with an illustration of a globe and airplane to the front panel. Near fine or better, with a slight lean and a hint of toning to the spine, former owner's pencil inscription to the front free endpaper, otherwise clean interior; unclipped dust jacket, with some very minor rubbing to the extremities, lacking the usual toning to the spine, short closed tear to the rear hinge at the spine head, faint vertical creases to the otherwise fresh panels. Overall, a beautiful copy, rare in the original dust jacket, and in excellent condition. One of the classic 20th century dystopian novels, Brave New World tells the story of Huxley's envisioned future for modern society: a totalitarian regime in which individuality has been replaced by conditioned uniformity and free thinking is suppressed with constant, mindless entertainment enhanced by government sanctioned recreational, mood-altering drugs. When this future "utopia" is breached by a "savage" who was raised without modern luxury, Huxley exposes that, while the future has secured the happiness and general well-being of all members of society, the meaning of life has been lost in the process. Unlike George Orwell's 1984 or Kurt Vonnegut's Player Piano, Huxley does not envision a government that uses terror or force to maintain control over its citizens, nor one that inherently depresses its constituents for the sake of progress. Instead, the chilling moral of Brave New World is that, while "it is usual for human beings to suppose that, whatever the immediate outlook may be, ultimately all will be for the best in the best of all possible worlds," it is important to remember not to be "too optimistic" or forget to question one's surroundings and the motives of those in positions of power.. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        The Story of My Life, In Dust Jacket, Signed by Darrow with his label

      1932 - With Darrow's Signature and Spine Label Darrow, Clarence [1857-1938]. The Story of My Life. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1932. viii, [iv], 465 pp. Fourteen plates (with 16 illustrations). Cloth very good in edgeworn, creased and lightly soiled dustjacket. Leather 2-1/2" x 3/4" calf label reading "C.S. Darrow" affixed to front pastedown, Darrow signature to half-title in bold hand. * First edition (Scribner "A," blue cloth). A curious feature of this copy, one we have never seen before, is the label affixed to the front pastedown. It is not a bookplate; it appears to be one a lawyer's spine label, this from Darrow's office. This may have been added by the owner of the book. (It is unlikely that Darrow would have owned an autographed copy in his book.) Darrow's Story of My Life is one of the great autobiographies of the twentieth century. When Darrow died in 1938 at the age of 81, few disputed that he was one of the great attorneys and public intellectuals of his day. There were other lawyers in his lifetime who contributed more to the development of legal science, who rose to positions of greater influence, or who won larger financial rewards, but perhaps none who could match his record as a crusader for the common man.

An uncommon book seldom found in dust. jacket. (#152549). First edition, first binding. The fifth and final novel published during Lindsay's lifetime. Though boring, the work has its memorable pages, even chapters according to Colin Wilson who spent two years getting through it. E. H. Visiak stated that he initially believed that the book was almost unreadable, but upon rereading it -- slowly -- he found it fascinating and was so impressed that he wrote a fifty page critique of the novel. Brian Stableford says the novel is "marvelously atmospheric and admirably conscientious in its design of a hypothetical mythology and the metaphysics to go with it." E. F. Bleiler considers DEVIL'S TOR to be Lindsay's "magnum opus." Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 3-218. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1022. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 140.

        The Story of My Life, In Dust Jacket, Signed by Darrow with his label

      1932. With Darrow's Signature and Book Label Darrow, Clarence [1857-1938]. The Story of My Life. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1932. viii, [iv], 465 pp. Fourteen plates (with 16 illustrations). Cloth very good in edgeworn, creased and lightly soiled dust jacket. Leather 2-1/2" x 3/4" calf label reading "C.S. Darrow" affixed to front pastedown, Darrow signature to half-title in bold hand. * First edition (Scribner "A," blue cloth). A curious feature of this copy, one we have never seen before, is the label affixed to the front pastedown. It is not a bookplate; it appears to be a lawyer's spine label, this one from Darrow's office. The label may have been added by the owner of the book. (It is unlikely that Darrow would have owned an autographed copy of his book.) Darrow's Story of My Life is one of the great autobiographies of the twentieth century. When Darrow died in 1938 at the age of 81, few disputed that he was one of the great attorneys and public intellectuals of his day. There were other lawyers in his lifetime who contributed more to the development of legal science, who rose to positions of greater influence, or who won larger financial rewards, but perhaps none who could match his record as a crusader for the common man.

        Thoughts and Adventures

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1932. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is a remarkable fine jacketed copy of the first edition, first printing - the best copy we have offered. This copy comes to us from the collection of Oscar-winning actor and director Lord Richard Samuel Attenborough (1923-2014). Churchill's collection of 23 engaging essays on an incredibly wide variety of subjects was first published in 1932. It has been called "The broadest range of Churchill's thought between two hard covers" and reflects the two qualities that so characterize Churchill's life - a remarkable breadth of both mind and life experience. From the original front flap blurb: "Whether he is dealing with personal reminiscences, or telling us his views on any subject under the sun, Mr. Churchill stamps the page with his own vivid personality." In a 31 May 1932 letter to his publisher about the book, Churchill characterized it thus: "...although there is no one single theme, it has some of the best things in it I have ever written." The khaki cloth unique to the first printing of this edition is notoriously prone to scuffing, wear, and soiling, the contents proved highly susceptible to spotting, and the first printing dust jacket has become quite scarce. This copy is near fine in a near fine dust jacket. The dust jacket is entirely complete, with absolutely no losses. Moreover, it is notably clean, with none of the usual spine toning and soiling. The sole dust jacket flaw of note is a closed tear, extending the first 1.25 inches of the lower front hinge and then diagonally onto the spine for another 1.25 inches, terminating below the price. We have photographed the dust jacket with the jacket protector removed to clearly show the closed tear, but please note that it virtually disappears beneath the removable, archival quality clear dust jacket protector. Irrespective of the closed tear, shelf appearance is just superb. The book beneath is clean and bright as only jacketed copies can be. The binding is clean and tight with sharp corners, vivid gilt, and perfect color. The scuffing endemic to the khaki cloth of the first printing is minimal, notable only at the spine extremities, including a minor scuff that extends into the spine title. The contents remain crisp with no previous ownership marks. Light spotting is confined to the prelim and page edges. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A95.1.a, Woods/ICS A39(aa.1), Langworth p.156.

        Manuscrit autographe inédit] "Psychologie et linguistique", conférence donnée à Caen le 11 février 1932

      1932 - 38 pp. in-4, entièrement autographes, ratures et corrections. Texte inédit d'une conférence donnée le 11 février 1932 dans le grand amphithéâtre de la Faculté de droit de Caen. Pichon y montre, à travers les exemples du temps et de la substance, "les contributions que la grammaire [peuvent] apporter à la compréhension des mécanismes inconscients qui président à l'élaboration de notre pensée". Son idée est que "une langue est par la spécificité de sa grammaire, un système de pensée cohérent différent de tous les autres systèmes humains : c'est en ce sens qu'une langue peut être spécialement qualifiée "d'idiome". On peut dire que dans la période si importante de notre enfance où nous recevons notre idiome, il est donné à notre pensée un ensemble de possibilités fonctionnelles qui influeront à jamais sur les édifices originaux qu'elle pourra individuellement construire". Il déconseille pour cette raison un bilinguisme trop précoce. Il fait auparavant quelques développements sur la notion de genre en français et évoque par exemple combien lui et ses soeurs furent choqués dans leur enfance par la "maladresse d'un traducteur" qui dans le conte de Gustafson "Les Deux poupées" proposait la main d'une poupée à une pelotte et à une brosse : "Je suis persuadé que l'inhabile traducteur lui-même, étant Français, aurait, s'il avait tiré pareil conte de son cru, instinctivement choisi "un peloton" ou "un ramasse-miettes" pour prétendants. Ça, c'eût été admissible !" Cette anecdote-même figure dans la conférence donnée par Pichon le 2 juin 1927 à la Sorbonne. On peut dire que la conférence de Caen est une version abrégée, vulgarisée, de la conférence de Paris (voir notre référence n° 4261), dont il a été retiré les développements sur la forclusion. Personnage d'une grande richesse, d'une infinie curiosité et très complexe, Edouard Pichon est un contemporain et - par son intérêt pour le langage - un précurseur de Lacan, qui lui reprendra - entre autres - le concept de forclusion. Il est l'un des membres fondateurs du groupe de L'Evolution psychiatrique et de la Société Psychanalytique de Paris (dont il fut président de 1935 à 1937). Avec son oncle Jacques Damourette, il est l'auteur d'un monumental Essai de Grammaire française dont la publication s'étala sur près de 30 ans. Il fut également fervent maurrassien tout en étant dreyfusard, et le gendre de Pierre Janet sans être janetien. (Voir à son sujet, E. Roudinesco, Histoire de la psychanalyse en France, t. 1, pp. 297-320). Nota : ce document ne pourra être exporté en dehors de l'Union Européenne sans autorisation préalable du ministère de la Culture, formalité pouvant prendre plusieurs jours. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Arabia Felix.

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons,, 1932. Across the "Empty Quarter" of Arabia. With a Foreword by T. E. Lawrence (T.E.S.) and Appendix by Sir Arthur Keith. Octavo. Original maroon cloth, titles and camel vignette to spine and front cover gilt, fore edge untrimmed. Frontispiece and 47 other plates, frequent illustrations to the text and 2 full-page charts to the text, folding colour map of al-Rub' al-Khali to rear (1 : 3,000,000; opening to 450 × 720 mm). Cloth faded to pink, extremities lightly rubbed with cloth worn away in places. A very good copy. First US edition, fourth printing, a month after the first: "a specially made-up state" produced for a dinner held by Scribner's in Thomas's honour on 22 February, 1932, with a menu and guest-list bound in at the front (O'Brien). This copy is signed on the front free endpaper by Thomas and twenty-seven of the assorted explorers, journalists and publishers who had attended the "American Arabian Night atop the Empire State Building", and additionally bears the bookplate of American science-fiction author Edward Wellen to the front pastedown: a uniquely associative copy of this singularly important work, which describes the first recorded traverse of the Empty Quarter. The only non-American signature in this remarkable assembly of names (excluding the author's) is provided by Vilhjalmur Stefansson (born William Stephenson), the Canadian-Icelandic explorer of the Arctic who won the Royal Geographical Society Founder's Medal in 1921, exactly ten years before it was awarded to Thomas for his desert journey; Stefansson is accompanied by another polar traveller in Laurence McKinley Gould, a geologist by training who received the Congressional Gold Medal on his return from a triumphant voyage to the Antarctic in 1930. Further explorers include Frederick Dellenbaugh, pioneer of the American West who notably participated in the expedition that formally discovered the Henry Mountains, Utah, Roy Chapman Andrews, a naturalist who led several successful expeditions to the Gobi Desert in the 1920s, making the first ever discovery of fossilised dinosaur eggs, and allegedly the inspiration for Indiana Jones, and also Kermit, son of President Theodore Roosevelt, who joined his father on his famous journey through the Amazon Basin and served with distinction in both world wars as an intelligence officer before committing suicide in Alaska in 1943. Visibly, though, the most distinctive signature suitably belongs to Lowell George, the relentlessly self-publicising broadcaster whose film, With Allenby in Palestine and Lawrence in Arabia (1919), "marked Lawrence's apotheosis and the genesis of what became his 'legend'" (ODNB). This dazzling array is completed by signatures from members of the Scribner family and other publishing grandees, a number of journalists including noted anti-corruption campaigner George Britt, and noted author Vince Sheean, whose Personal History (1935) won the inaugural National Book Award and later served as the basis for Hitchcock's thriller, Foreign Correspondent. A Post-Office worker who left school with no qualifications, Thomas (1892-1950) joined the Somerset Light Infantry on the outbreak of war and was posted to Mesopotamia, where he was talent-spotted by Sir Arnold Wilson, the British civil commissioner in the Persian Gulf. Thomas "held a number of civilian posts under Wilson and distinguished himself as political officer at Shatra during the Iraqi uprising in 1920 … Wilson's successor in the gulf, Sir Percy Cox, retained Thomas in his position as a political adviser to the Arab leaders serving under the provisional British administration. He was appointed OBE and transferred to Transjordan as assistant to the chief British representative at the court of Amir Abdullah. He became in 1924 financial adviser (and later first minister) in the sultanate of Muscat" (ODNB). It was at this time that developed the ambition to cross the Empty Quarter and made a number of preparatory reconnaissance trips, during which "he dressed as a Bedouin, eschewed tobacco and alcohol, and spoke only Arabic". Late in 1930 Thomas left Muscat on a passing British warship, arriving at Dhufar, on the Indian Ocean coast of Arabia "from where he intended to commence his south?-north crossing of the empty quarter. After waiting some months for his guides (who were involved in desert hostilities) he eventually set out with a small camel caravan but no promise of protection from the warring and predatory tribes of the interior. He emerged fifty-eight days later at Doha, on the Persian Gulf. The Royal Geographical Society in London promptly awarded him their founder's medal, and other learned societies around the world followed suit … He was admired by T. E. Lawrence and by his successor Wilfred Thesiger, who found twenty years later that Thomas was remembered by the Bedouin as an honourable, brave, and tolerant man". O'Brien notes that one copy of this special issue was probably given to each dinner-guest, and that "most copies have signatures of guests of honour near their printed names", though it is hard to conceive of a copy as generously and evocatively inscribed as this. A full list of signatories is available on request.

        [COLLECTION OF SEVENTY-ONE PIECES OF ORIGINAL COVER ART FOR THE Buffalo Bill Novels MAGAZINE SERIES]

      [N.p., but possibly London, 1932. Some light soiling and chipping around edges, but images generally bright and clean. Overall, very good. A remarkable group of original cover art for the BUFFALO BILL NOVELS, a British boys' pulp magazine published from 1916 to 1932 by the Aldine Publishing Co. in London. Despite its name, the stories were not always about Buffalo Bill, though they were always set in the Old West and featured plenty of cowboys and Indians. These illustrations are all signed by Robert Prowse (R.P.), who did artwork for this and other similar projects; some are dated below his initials. The series ran for 342 issues, though the last cover in this collection is for No. 344, possibly an unpublished issue, as we could find no trace of this title associated with the BUFFALO BILL NOVELS. Somewhere between No. 188 and No. 191, "New Series" began to appear above the issue number, though they all appear to be of the same run and the numbering is continuous. The titles are as follows: No. 23. THE MAN IN BLACK No. 24. THE MAD AVENGER No. 29. THE RED TOMAHAWK No. 41. THE PONY RIDE DETECTIVE No. 44. THE CRIMSON ARROW No. 51. BUCK TAYLOR!
