Crosby served with the American Field Service and the Ambulance Corps during the Great War, experiences which left an indelible mark on his personality and world-view.

While not a particularly scarce book, the binding of this, the last Paris Black Sun imprint, is particularly vulnerable to wear and deterioration to the joints and this is an unusually nice copy.

Lovable, irrepressible, but dissolute American wreaks havoc in Europe in the company of a slightly pregnant film star, a gangster, a bartender, a dictator, and a fat lady. By the author of *Queer People,* which itself is one of the quintessential Hollywood novels. Exceptionally uncommon in jacket. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Light rubbing to the spine and extremities, near fine in an exceptionally bright dust jacket with only minor light rubbing to the edges. After the success of his first three novels, Huxley abandoned the fictional milieu of literary London and directed his satire toward an imagined future. He admitted that the original idea of Brave New World was to challenge H.G. Wells' Utopian vision… The novel also marks Huxley's increasing disenchantment with the world, which was to result in his leaving England for California in 1937 in search of a more spiritual life. The book was immediately successful" (Parker & Kermode).

        The Disappearing City (Presentation Copy)

      New York: William Farquhar Payson, 1932. New York: William Farquhar Payson, 1932. First edition. Cloth. Very Good/fair. Small square quarto (8 1/4"). First edition of this 90 page extended meditation on forces affecting the modern city. Illustrated with some black and white photographs. Green cloth covers decorated in black are in very good condition. The book is lightly shelfworn and the endpapers are somewhat darkened, but overall a handsome very good copy. The price-intact dustwrapper is present but is quite worn and has an alpine shaped large chip to the front cover as well as numerous other smaller chips and wear. This copy benefits from a handwritten presentation by Wright "To "Dave" one of the heroes of this book. Frank Lloyd Wright. Taliesen. June 8." The question of who "Dave" is remains although from a reading of the text it is quite possible that Wright was referring to Walter V. Davidson whose home Wright built in Buffalo and who is mentioned in several passages within the text. An uncommon early Wright title and one which seldom appears with inscription.

        Miss Zilphia Gant

Preface by Henry Nash Smith. 8vo: xii,29,[2]pp, no. 189 of 300 numbered copies. Original reddish-brown gilt-ruled and -lettered cloth, fore- and bottom edges untrimmed. Very light wear to spine tips, else clean, tight, bright and unmarked; about Fine (and apparently unread), wanting the original glassine dust jacket. Petersen A12.1 Probably written in 1929, three years before publication by the Book Club of Texas in this special edition of three hundred copies. The short story centers on development of the title character whose mother raises her as a virtual prisoner. "Though it is crude in its handling of sexual imagery and suffers from a number of other technical problems that betray it as an early story, it does create two vivid characters. And of more importance, it reveals the author grappling with a theme that will be developed fully in some of his greatest stories and novels: the warping, destructive impact upon the psyche of the repression of those drives that connect the human being to the world of nature. . . . The narrative techniques of 'Miss Zilphia Gant' also show Faulkner surely, if falteringly, moving toward this techniques that will make his Jefferson stories and novels masterpieces." (Volpe, A Reader's Guide to William Faulkner: The Short Stories) N. B.

        The isolation of crystalline vitamin A plus other materials

      1932-1945 1932 - From the Isolator of Vitamin A to the Discoverer of Vitamin E Holmes, Harry Nicholls (1879-1958). (1) (with Ruth E. Corbet) The isolation of crystalline vitamin A. Offprint from Journal of the American Chemical Society 59 (1937). 2042-2047pp. Original printed wrappers. Inscribed by Holmes to Herbert M. Evans (1882-1971) on the front wrapper: "To Herbert M. Evans with the Compliments of Harry N. Holmes." (2) Autograph letter signed to Evans. 1 page. Oberlin, April 21, 1945. 282 x 214 mm. (3) Black and white photograph of Holmes in his laboratory. 255 x 207 mm. Signed on the verso by Holmes: "Harry N. Holmes Oberlin College." (4) (with Henry M. Leicester) The isolation of carotene. Offprint from Journal of the American Chemical Society 54 (1932). 716-720pp. Original printed wrappers. 236 x 160 mm. Together 4 items, plus cover addressed in Holmes’s hand to Evans with Evans’s pencil note "Isolation of crystalline Vitamin A" on the front. Very good to fine. First Editions, Offprint Issues of nos. (1) and (3). Holmes and Corbet were the first to isolate vitamin A in pure crystalline form. Their paper, "The isolation of crystalline vitamin A," was their first full-length description of their achievement, following a very brief announcement published in Science earlier in 1937 (see Garrison-Morton 1074). Holmes inscribed this copy to Herbert M. Evans, the co-discoverer of vitamin E (see Garrison-Morton 1070), after Evans had written to Holmes requesting a copy and other materials; this is explained in Holmes’s letter to Evans: "The compliment of your request in your Feb. letter deserved an instant reply but delay in finding a photo—and a rush of work—delayed me. "It was more than kind of you to call our isolation of crystalline vitamin A a "classic," especially after the boorish attitude of Karrer at Zurich. "And so I’m glad to send you, in separate packet, photo, reprint desired—and a few others that I hope may interest you." No. (3) is the photograph Holmes sent to Evans. "Karrer" refers to Paul Karrer (1889-1971), who was the first to establish the structure of beta-carotene (the chief precursor of vitamin A); Karrer received a share of the 1937 Nobel Prize in chemistry for his research on vitamins. No. (4), the paper by Holmes and Leicester, describes a laboratory method of isolating carotene "which would minimize the exposure of the materials to air at all times" (p. 717).
