        TWELFTH NIGHT, Or What You Will

      Berkshire The Golden Cockerel Press 1932 - LIMITED First of the edition and one of only 275 hand-numbered copies. With handsome engravings throughout by Eric Ravilious, including an ornately engraved pictorial title-page and an ornately framed "Dramatis Personae leaf featuring the various characters. All of the engravings are printed in either brick-red or blue-gray and many are quite large. Folio, in the original binding for the Golden Cockerel by Sangorski and Sutcliffe of three-quarter crushed tan morocco over dark tan cloth covered boards decorated with Ravilious woodcuts. The spine with wide raised bands ruled in blind and with gilt lettering in one compartment, edges untrimmed as issued. 76, [1] pp. A desirable copy of this rarely found Golden Cockerel folio Shakespeare, the text is essentially pristine and perfect, the paper exceptionally fresh. The binding with some rubbing and wear as it is prone to, this being more apparent on the cloth portion than on the leather. FIRST EDITION. "ONE OF THE PRESS' GREATEST AESTHETIC SUCCESSES AND THE FINEST FLOWERING OF RAVILIOUS' ENGRAVED BOOK ILLUSTRATIONS". QUITE SCARCE AND A WONDERFULLY ILLUSTRATED SHAKESPEARE COMEDY. This is one of the very beautiful books issued from this fine press. The book was printed at the Golden Cockerel Press in Waltham Saint Lawrence, Berkshire, England by Robert and Moira Gibbings, who were assisted by George Churchill. It was completed on the twelfth day of April, 1932. The text follows that of the Globe Edition, the compositors being A. H. Gibbs and F. Young, and with A. C. Cooper as Pressman. This is one of the later books of the Robert Gibbings period for the Press, and as with many of the books printed during his time at the helm he turned to the London firm of Sangorski and Sutcliffe for the binding. And, even though Gibbings was a highly accomplished wood engraver himself, for this title he sought out the talent of Eric Ravilious. Ravilious had also done notable work for the Curwen and Cresset Presses. His style of wood-engraving is greatly influenced by that of Thomas Bewick, which is especially apparent in this title.

        Renault. L'Automobile de France

      Draeger, Paris 1932 - With its silver foil pictorially embossed cover and bold interior graphics, an unusually striking automobile catalogue or sales brochure -- even by comparison with other catalogues of the same era, when glossy and resplendent catalogues were something of a norm. One can fairly liken this car brochure to the spectacular sales annuals created by Hollywood studios at the time, Also scarce, with no copies located on OCLC. Folio, 31.5 by 23.5 cm. Unpaginated, [28] pp, with fold-out centerfold, a four page spread, showcasing the Stella car. Profusely illustrated, with a combination of partial color and full color drawings and b/w photos. Besides the sleek classic cars, the brochure also features other, more utilitarian Renault vehicles of the day -- trucks, buses, aviation and marine motors -- and factory views, sometimes arranged into a montage across the page. Some scuffs and flattened dog ear creases on the cover and a few minor spots within. Overall, an exceedingly well-preserved copy of a stunning production, capturing perfectly the beauty of the vehicles of the day. Metal spiral. Card stock boards, with silver foil pastedown.

        Kamet Conquered.

      1932 - London, Victor Gollancz, 1932. 8vo. Original black cloth, spine letterdd in gilt; pp. xvi, 420; 59 black and white photograph plates and 2 full page maps, one folding map at the end; light wear to extremities; front inner hinge expertly strengthened, frontispiece and titlea little spotted. First edition, a fascinating association copy. The trek organised by Smythe was one of the most important European climbing expeditions of the day. Mount Kamet had defied attempts on her summit since 1855, and the conquest in 1931 was a land-mark in Mountaineering. In this volume Smythe relates the compulsive tale of his victorious assault on the 25,447 feet peak, and the subsequent exploration of the source of the Ganges. Typewritten letter from the author, signed and dated Braemar, 21. 1. 43 inside front cover, addressed to Geoffrey Bartram, to whom the book is also inscribed by Smiyhe, signed and dated 28. 10. 1932. Smythe's return address on the letter is the Commando Mountain & Snow Warfare Training Camp (CMSWTC), formed at Braemar, Aberdeenshire in 1942 during the Second World War. The camp was under the command of Smythe in his capacity as a Squadron Leader, though as he points out "a wretched nuisance this war is, as I don't want to be too old for another crack at Everest." The letter is accompanied by two pieces of correspondence sent by Donald McIntyre, the archivist for the Scottish Mountaineering Club between 1993-1996, referring to the investigation by the then owner of the book into the identity of Bartram. Tacked onto the bottom of the second letter is a handwritten note from mountaineering expert Bill Murray (who originally wrote his seminal work Mountaineering in Scotland on toilet paper as a prisoner of war). In this note, Geoffrey Bartram is revealed to have been the Vice President of the Alpine club between 1944-45. Neate 729, Yakushi (3rd ed.) S623a [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      - Various formats. Contains a total of 464 black and white or sepia toned photographs measuring between 1.5" x 2" to 5" x 7", the majority with captions. An extensive collection of photographs taken by Private Edward D. Navary while stationed in Hawaii during his service with the United States Signal Corps from 1932-1935. Included throughout the album are photographs depicting military trips to Mexico, various Hawaiian Islands, and Panama, as well as images from his leave when he went back to New York to visit family. Berthed on the *U.S.A.T. Republic*, pictured here, he traveled to Panama and Mexico with the Army after the ship was transferred to Army control in 1931. Photographs include what Navary captioned as "scenes at Panama City R. Dep." depicting the Dominican convent, business district, and the Balboa district of Panama. The Hawaiian portion of the albums shows soldiers and islanders working together on military bases including a notable one in Waianae. The landscape of the islands is seen in pictures captioned, "sunset looking west far out, Pacific from the pass;" and "a high and sharp peak in Waianae Mountain." Soldiers are shown enjoying the beaches, competing in track and field, posing with the barracks mascot, a donkey, as well as working on switchboards for the Signal Corps, with some images posed in front of Naval planes. There are also photos of military planes flying overhead and some beautiful photos of the islands from the air and the Punchbowl Volcano Crater.Among the photographs are images of Navary's friends and family in New York and New Jersey presumably taken while he was on leave. These photos show home life in the 1930s with images of newborns, posing on Monmouth Beach, and riding motorcycles in New York. Also featured are girls posing with cars and some school photos given to Navary of unnamed girlfriends. A large assortment of photographs showing the 1930s pre-war American military as well as civilian life during the same decade. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Odyssey of Homer Translated by T E Lawrence with a three-page note by him at the end of the text

      (London), 1932. Rogers, Bruce. Quarto. Unpaginated. One of 530 copies, printed and published by Rogers, Sir Emery Walker, and Wilfred Merton. Illustrated with 26 decorations of Homeric figures printed in black on round backgrounds of gold. It was Rogers who, upon reading Seven Pillars of Wisdom, decided that T.E. Lawrence would be an ideal translator for a new edition of the Odyssey-a process that was expected to take two years and ended up taking four. The famous gold roundels-one of the signature features of this edition-were based on Rogers's drawings of figures from Greek vases, each one depicting a scene from Homer's epic. These illustrations famously required seven passes through the press. Even the ink was specially made from an early 19th-century formula, using an oily resinous balsam that resulted in "a depth of black without gloss" in the roundels, as well as lending the book a slightly spicy aroma. A BR30 title, this is one of Rogers' most beautiful books and, according to Joseph Blumenthal, "indisputably among the most beautiful books ever produced ... with only type and paper and ink, with consummate skill, Rogers created a masterpiece." Two small tears to rear free endpaper, else a fine copy housed in the original slipcase, which shows some paper loss to edges. (Warde 157; Blumenthal p.134; O'Brien A141).

"In one of his few prose writings, George provided an introduction for the song book.

        The Diary of Tobias Lear: With an Unpublished Account of the Death of George Washington (UNIQUE, FINELY BOUND TYPED MANUSCRIPT ACCOUNT OF THE DEATH OF WASHINGTON AS RELAYED BY TOBIAS LEAR - WITH GEORGE WASHINGTON AUTOGRAPH BOUND IN AND FRAGMENT OF WASHINGTON'S "PALL" COVERING ENCAPSULATED ON FRONT LEATHER COVER)

      Saco, Maine: Frank Cutter Deering, 1932. Original Typed Manuscript. Leather bound. Very Good +. 6 3/4 X 8 1/2 Inches. 31 PP + 65 unnumbered illustration PP. Fine morocco leather with five spine hubs ruled and titled in gold gilt. Custom presentation announcement engraved on front cover, "Presented by Sarah Curtis, Saco from Admiral Storer, U.S.N. - The Above Piece of Fabric is a Fragment of the Pall Covering the Coffin of Gen. Geo. Washington at his Funeral Dec. 18th 1799." Previous owner bookplete on inside front board identifying the book as part of the Frank Cutter Deering collection of Americana. Deering has titled his custom created book, "Diary of Tobias Lear with an Unpublished Account of the Death of George Washington. Mount Vernon 1799-1801." Deering has also added a page describing the text as "Extra-Illustrated by Frank C. Deering - Saco, Maine." The page immediately following the title-page bears the tipped-in autograph of President George Washington. The autograph cut is roughly 1 X 3 1/8 Inches and is mounted to the larger page. Over 65 illustrations throughout the book are mounted in a silmilar fashion on unnumbered pages. The illustrations appear to have been removed from other publications and hand-assembled by Mr. Deering in this production. Interestingly, the typed manuscript pages all bear a page number, but are also numbered in pencil in the upper right corner. Beautiful marbled endpapers and the binding is signed, "The Rose Bindery - Boston." The deathbed account of Tobias Lear has reached legendary status today. The rare account of Washington's close friend and personal aide gives us the foundation for what we know of Washington's final hours and his final words of "Tis Well." It is this account that documents the incredible blood-letting performed on Washington in the final 24 hours of his life as well as his statement to Lear to make sure that he was dead for a minimum of "two days" before being entombed. It is noted at OCLC that the deathbed details that Tobias Lear documented in at least two separate 12-page letters was published in a privately printed pamphlet that is only held by five institutions today. It is unknown if Deering was working from the original manuscript and/or one of these pamphlets published circa 1898. The provenance notation on the front board in regards to the "pall" covering of Washington states that it originates with the collection of Admiral George Washington Storer. Storer's father was married to George Washington's secretary's sister, Mary Lear. Frank Deering was a noted collector of Americana himself. He is widely known to have had the largest collection of Indian Captivity related material during his lifetime. His Americana and autograph pursuits are also well-known. After his death on August 12, 1939, his collection eventually went to Goodspeed's. A 1949 catalog from Goodspeed's announced, ""Goodspeed's Book Shop takes pleasure in offering for sale the superb collection of rare Americana collected by the late Frank C. deering of Maine" This book has been cared for with the utmost attention to detail. The corners are sharp. The pages are clean and bright. The leather boards and spine are in near perfect condition.

        Eyewitness; Being Personal Reminiscences of Certain Phases of the Great War, including the Genesis of the Tank.

      London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1932 - Octavo. Original black cloth, titles gilt to the spine, narrow enamelled bands in the Tank Corps colours of brown, red and green to head and tail of the spine and front cover, illustrated maps to pastedowns. Minor rubbing to spine ends, top edge dust toned; an excellent, bright copy. Portrait frontispiece, 9 plates and folding diagram. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper "To Stephen Foot in memory of 1914–18 from the author E. D. Swinton Feb. 1939". Swinton (1868–1951) was appointed by Kitchener in September 1914 as the official war correspondent for the British Army, under the pseudonym "Eyewitness". Swinton claims in this work to have sparked the creation of the tank; "Swinton's claim to be the originator of the tank is problematic, however . Swinton made no contribution to overcoming technical problems in the development of the tank, although he provided early plans for how caterpillar tractors might be employed . and coined the euphemism 'tank'" (ODNB). He accepted the role of colonel-commandant of the Royal Tank Corps in 1934. The recipient, Major Stephen Foot (1887–1966), served for three years on the Western Front in the Great War as one of the Reserve of Officers with the Royal Engineers at the Somme, then transferred as a Brigade-Major to the 2nd Tank Brigade, where "my own job was to follow up the tanks and find out from the infantry what they really thought about the way the tanks did their job". In January 1918, during a period of leave in England, he transferred to a staff post in the Tank Directorate at the War Office, writing a paper on A Mobile Army in April 1918, which advocated replacing horses with mechanised caterpillar tractors, which he reprinted in his autobiography Three Lives, published in 1934.

        THE CURSE OF THE HORSE RACE

      Printed for Cobden Sanderson 1932 - The author's own proof sheets of his contribution to the 1932 work, "Little Innocents". Four sheets, printed on one side, unbound. Inscribed by Waugh to Diana Cooper on the reverse of the final leaf, "the Lady Diana Cooper 202", with the author's further annotation adding his age of 7¼ to the first page. Folds to pages, otherwise fine. Housed in chemise and quarter morocco box. A very rare, if not unique, individual issue of Waugh's first piece of fiction, written at about the age of seven. The manuscript of this piece of juvenilia is held (along with most of Waugh's papers) at the Ransom Center in Austin, Texas, where it is listed as item A1 in their catalogue. It was first published in Little Innocents (1932) and then collected in Tactical Exercise (1954). The first page of the manuscript is reproduced in Waugh's autobiography, A Little Learning. It was given by Waugh to Diana Cooper at the beginning of their long friendship when Waugh was sufficiently enamoured of her to follow her round the country during a provincial tour of The Miracle, in which Cooper starred. It seems likely that the '202' in Waugh's inscription refers to Cooper's hotel room. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The marine shells of Port Alfred S. Africa.

      Cambridge, Oxford University Press; London: Humphrey Milford, 1932. Large 8vo (24.7 x 15.5 cm). Two frontispiece photos, errata leaf, xvi, 331 pp., 70 plates. Original green cloth with gilt title on front board and spine.= This is a rare work on the marine molluscs found in the immediate vicinity of the South African town of Port Alfred, and Port Alfred itself. The author, Lieutenant-Colonel William Harry Turton (1856-1938], a great-nephew of the British malacologist William Turton, had sent shells to E. A. Smith of the British Museum and, later, to Paul Bartsch of the United States National Museum (Smithsonian) but was quite dissatisfied with both men's treatment of his material. Finally he decided to publish a great number of new species himself. Turton was convinced that many species were endemic to the area covered. The total print run of this work must have been low as the work is quite rare. This copy is very well preserved, with hardly any shelf wear, and only a few spots on the edges. A clipping from a sales catalogue is tipped in on the front pastedown; otherwise it is clean inside. A very good copy. Dance, A history of shell collecting, pp. 179, 251. Not in Nissen.

        Baghdad Sketches . Illustrations by E.N. Prescott.

      1932 - Baghdad, The Times Press, Ltd., 1932. 8vo. Original red cloth with printed paper label to spine and front cover; pp. [vii], 132; 12 plates after drawings by Prescott; spine label a little flawed, insect mark to front hinges, one wormhole from front cover to p. 21, light fading to spine, darkening to cloth, signed presentation inscription, dated Kuwait, November, 1932 on front fly-leaf. First edition of Freya Stark's first book, published in Baghdad, now very rare, inscribed by her to Rose Young. The paper quality, as well as that of the cloth binding, were inferior to that used in the later British book of the same title. Freya Stark describes the now almost completely destroyed multicultural life of the city, including one 11-page chapter on Kuwait. A contemporary review in the Geographical Journal read ‘Miss Stark is entirely free from the guide-book manner, and her studies of the country and people have an engaging freshness. Shrewd observation and sympathy mingle in her pages . These sketches convey, better than far more pretentious volumes, the strange fascination of the country; its blend of antiquity and beauty with squalor, of laisser faire with racial pride and ambition’ (vol. 81, 1933, p. 361). The print run of this edition is unknown, but probably limited to 500 copies - certainly Stark, who worked for the 'Baghdad Times' throughout 1932, received no payment until 500 copies were sold (letter to Venetia Buddicum, February 20, 1932). The boards of the present copy are definitely heavier and thicker than all others we have handled. Provenance: Rose Young (later Lady Rose Young) was the wife of Major Sir Hubert Winthrop Young who, in 1932, was appointed the first Minister of Baghdad and published a sympathetic book, The Independent Arab' (1933), detailing his diplomatic and military time in the Middle East. Stark holidayed with the Youngs and Mrs. Julian Huxley in Kuwait in early 1932. 'We had our dish of rice and sheep and ate it with our fingers (Mrs. Huxley not really enjoying it) . The Youngs are charming to be out with: so pleasant and pleased with little things like beetles or sunsets or food' (from a letter to her mother, Flora Stark in: Over the Rim of the World . Selected Letters. Edited by Caroline Moorehead, p. 83). 'At Lawrence's request Young was transferred to the Hejaz operations in March 1918 as general staff officer, grade 2 (GSO2). He organized transport and supplies for the composite force which cut the railway behind the Turkish army just before Allenby's final attack. He was mentioned in dispatches, and received the DSO (1919), and order of El Nahdha, third class. After a short period as president of the local resources board in Damascus (1918), he took leave to England. In Seven Pillars of Wisdom (1926) Lawrence praised Young as energetic, capable, and strong-willed, 'a regular of exceptional quality … rising, as ever, to any occasion' (Lawrence, 524, 577). Young served in the new eastern department of the Foreign Office (1919â€"21), where his Arab experience helped form the policy eventually adopted in Iraq. He was assistant secretary in the Middle East department, Colonial Office, from its formation in 1921 until the end of 1926. He was colonial secretary, Gibraltar (1927â€"9), counsellor to the high commissioner for Iraq (1929â€"32), and envoy-extraordinary and minister-plenipotentiary in Baghdad (October and November 1932)' (ODNB).
