        THE BOOK-BAG

      1932. [1 of 725 signed copies] Florence: G. Orioli, 1932. Original light blue boards with cream cloth spine, with dust jacket. First Separate Edition, issued as No. 9 in Orioli's "Lungarno Series," limited to 725 numbered copies signed by Maugham (this copy un-numbered). ~This tale has a strange history. Maugham had submitted it to Cosmopolitan years earlier, but its editor Ray Long rejected it because he feared readers would be offended by the subject matter (incest between British adult brother and sister in Malaya; the ending is vaguely reminiscent of Conrad's "Oh the horror!" in "Heart of Darkness"). In 1932, Long decided to publish an anthology of the twenty best stories he had published in Cosmopolitan, and decided (with Maugham's acquiescence) to include "The Book-Bag." Three months after Long's anthology, Orioli's Florence edition came out. (Toole Stott points out that ultimately, Ray Long indirectly lost his life due to Maugham: after reading The Moon and Sixpence Long decided that he too would become an artist in the South Pacific, left his career (in his fifties) to do just that, and subsequently committed suicide there when he realized he had no talent.)~This is a fine copy, unusually clean, with the leaves still unopened; the dust jacket is just about fine as well (one third-inch closed tear). Toole Stott A43b.

        Typed Document Signed, carbon copy, 4to, n.p., March 25, 1929

      New York State Governor Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed this document addressed to the New York State Assembly indicating that he is "returning herewith, without my approval Assembly Bill Introductory Number 1260...entitled 'an Act to amend the town law with respect to the establishment and enlargement of water districts in towns situated in Westchester county....NOT APPROVED," is typed above the explanation. "The present town law permits water districts to be created only upon petition of property owners...without any adequate explanation...this bill proposed to permit the extension of water districts and the increase of their indebtedness without...petition...The bill is badly drawn and shows an entire lack of any interest in protecting the tax payers...." The future president signs, "Franklin D. Roosevelt." Six months after Roosevelt signed this document, the New York Stock Market crashed. FDR established a relief system in the state of New York that would serve as a prototype for the federal programs he would establish upon his election as US President in 1932.

        Confessions of An English Opium Eater

      Cleveland, OH: World Publishing Company, 1932. Hardcover. Laurence Chaves. 228pp. Octavo [21 cm] 1/2 blue cloth over tan boards. Very good/Very good. Jacket lightly rubbed at extremities and nicked at corners. Backstrip is rubbed and cloth is rubbed at corners. An illustrated edition with artwork by Laurence Chaves and a surrealistic Dali-esque dust jacket by Corydon Bell.& & This book is a childhood volume belonging the late author, Edward Abbey. He has signed the book in a large childish block lettering "Edward Abbey/Home, Pa." Although undated, judging from the 1932 publication date of the book, and the young author's handwriting, it is likely he was perhaps 10-12 years old at the time. It is highly unlikely as precocious as he was, that the author, born in 1927, was reading DeQuincy at age five. But the volume is clearly indicative of a young inquiring mind and speaks volumes about the author's interests and intellect. This is the first book from Abbey's early childhood that we have ever handled.

        Lodovico Belgiojoso architetto 1909-2004. La ricerca di un'Italia «altra»

      Skira 2013 Il volume raccoglie i contributi di docenti e studiosi intervenuti al convegno dedicato al centenario della nascita di Lodovico Barbiano di Belgiojoso con lo scopo di rileggere l'apporto personale dell'architetto in seno alla produzione complessiva dello Studio BBPR fondato a Milano nel 1932, le cui realizzazioni hanno inciso profondamente sulla produzione architettonica italiana distinguendosi per una continua ricerca nei principi della tradizione e dell'innovazione, nel rispetto del passato e in un rinnovato entusiasmo per il futuro. Per quanto la figura di ogni membro del Gruppo BBPR non possa essere disgiunta dal lavoro e dai risultati dello Studio, il volume intende mettere in rilievo il personale impegno civile e politico di Belgiojoso "volto alla ricerca di un Italia 'altra' dove l'esistenza si scontra con le dubbie verità del Paese tradizionalista e lassista"; il coinvolgimento negli anni della Resistenza, a cuiseguirà la deportazione in Germania documentata in una toccante raccolta di scritti e disegni; il contributo nell'ambito dell'attività professionale contrassegnato da un instancabile interesse per un'architettura come costruzione e la continua elaborazione culturale operata attraverso un reciproco confronto tra i membri del Gruppo, contribuendo nella trasformazione dello Studio in un "laboratorio culturale di grande attualità". Brossura, volume in Italiano.
