        KING CHARLES II. Typescript of an Unpublished School Play.

      1932 - Typescript comprising two sections: first, three pages of carbon copy with Orwell's autograph pencil side-notes recording sound effects, the name 'Geoffrey' written twice in red crayon; second, twelve roneograph pages with some pencil markings probably in the hand of one of the boy actors [Geoffrey Stevens], 15 pages, folio and 4to, spindle holes, some slight wear and creasing, marginal fraying at outer leaves, final leaf torn and reinforced; together with an original photograph of Orwell and his school at this time, mounted and labelled.Provenance: Geoffrey Stevens; sold Sothebys, London Dec. 15th 1988; Private Collection. This short historical play, which is written partly in blank verse, was composed by the twenty-nine-year-old Eric Blair when he was headmaster at the Hawthorns High School for Boys in Hayes, Middlesex, a small private school having little more than a dozen pupils (as the accompanying photograph shows). It was performed as the school's Christmas play at St Mary's Church Hall in Hayes in 1932. This was in a period when Orwell had finished Down and Out in Paris and London (or Days in London and Paris, as it was originally titled) and was looking for a publisher. He was working on Burmese Days and had only sought the job at Hawthorns because he needed an income. Fed up with his job and his lack of disposable income, he then spent the best part of a term writing and rehearsing a school play for the boys to perform. With dramatic speeches, noisy altercations involving stocks and pikes, unlikely coincidences and some very theatrical dialogue, it is little wonder that Geoffrey Stevens, one of the boys who performed in the play, enjoyed the experience considerably more than Orwell himself, who referred to it in a letter to Eleanor Jacques on 19 October as 'a mucky play the boys are to act later'. By 18 November he could record: 'I have had to write & produce a play- am now in the throes of rehearsing it- & what is worst of all, have had to make most of the suits of armour etc. for the boys to act it. For the last few weeks I have been suffering untold agonies with glue & brown paper etc.' (Collected Essays, Journalism and Letters, 1968, I, 102-105). Geoffrey Stevens, whose copy this is, remembers the undertaking more fondly: 'The performance lasted only half an hour, but we spent hours in preparation, finding props, constructing the scenery etc., all of which he [Orwell] supervised closely. It was ambitious. He arranged for plywood doors on either side to have saw cuts made in them so that Cromwell's men could break them open with their pikes. It worked perfectly and made a great crashing noise coming down.' (Orwell, The Authorised Biography, Michael Shelden, 1991, p172.)Orwell was seldom pleased with his work and destroyed the majority of his manuscripts. King Charles II, while it lacks some of the literary merits of his published work, has pastiche, humour and a political message. Aside from Nineteen Eighty-Four, less than half of which survives, this would appear to be the only Orwell typescript in existence. It remains unpublished, and this is the sole known copy. Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request. Lucius Books welcomes direct contact with our customers.

        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

      World Publishing Company 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.

        Greek Memories [Uncorrected Proof Copy]

      Cassell|~| London: Cassell. [1932]. The uncorrected proof copy of this memoir of the author's time in Greece during World War I, during which time he worked for the British intelligence service MI6, eventually becoming the head of the Aegean Intelligence Service. The memoir was suppressed upon publication as a violation of the Official Secrets Act, and Mackenzie was fined. In the book he revealed for the first time the existence of the SIS (Secret Intelligence Service) and was highly critical of particular individuals. As a result, he was later placed on MI5's watch list, and his activities were monitored by the British domestic intelligence service. The book was republished in 1939 without fanfare. Spine slant; initials to rear cover; staining and bookstore (?) label to front cover; good in wrappers. Few copies of the 1932 edition survived; proof copies are especially uncommon. . First Edition. Softcover.
