Five scientific books are in the process of completion, covering Geology, Geography, Glaciology, Oceanography, Meteorology, Magnetism, Biology and Radio.Would you this time be willing to supply me with some Eskimo Parkas (or coats) which would, of course, help insure the safety of some of my crew.

Contains 124 sepia toned photographs affixed to stiff black paper measuring between 2.5" x 1.5" and 3" x 5" with some captions. The album is very good or better with some tears and worn corners with near fine or better photographs. A photo album compiled by Russellville, Arkansas native Dorothy K. Tackett with a large majority of the images taken during what appears to be her senior year of high school with overall dates between 1933 and 1936. About 20 of the photographs depict her taking part in her school's basketball team with pictures of the coach, the team in tracksuits and their uniforms, as well as single shots of girls posing with basketballs. The album shows school activities, the music club, a blindfolded girl walking along a plank of wood, various headshots of classmates, and groups of children playing. There are also photos of people posing near their cars, girls on swimming and camping trips, a young child on a bicycle, and two girls posing with a Navy seaman in uniform. An interesting collection depicting active young women from the 1930s. .

        Heavy Weather

      Herbert Jenkins 1933 - A fine copy in fine second issue wrapper.The wrapper is original to the book. Herbert Jenkins practise was to issue the first at 7/6 or 3/6 and then 12-18 months later all unsold firsts were married to a popular wrapper and sold at 2/6 ,so where Mcilvaine states a print run of 10,000 for the first perhaps as few as 25% had a first wrapper ,the balance going out with the popular one. The bibliography states cheap edition but I have never seen one and it is a term the British Library used for popular or second editions In the 20's and 30's 7/6 was a lot of money and many Wodehouse readers waited for the popular edition .Collectors did not really discover him until the 60/70's, when modern firsts started to gain value Firsts are now becoming out of reach for many collectors so there is now a secondary market developing. A lovely copy [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Fallen Asleep While Young [Signed] [Nuorena nukkunut; The Maid Silja]

      Putnam, 1933, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good +, Dust Jacket Condition: very good +, First editionA Very Good + copy of the first UK edition, first printing (age toning to the spine and to the board edges, tiny pull to cloth under the "U" in "YOUNG" on the front board -- not affecting lettering, lower right corner of front board bumped), in a Very Good+ example of the rare dust jacket (spine mildly darkened, rubbing to edges, tiny chips and tears to the spine ends and panel corners, one quite small chip and one tiny chip to upper front panel, tiny tear to each of the upper and to lower edges of rear panel), SIGNED BY FRANS E. SILLANPAA on the title page; Frans Sillanpaa's tale of a Finnish farmer's daughter, an only child and the last green shoot of an old family tree. As her father, though hardworking, also is impractical and improvident, the farm becomes a shambles and, at her father's death, Silja must move on. She performs domestic work on various farms and, one after another, the farmers fall in love with her. She, however, becomes afflicted with an incurable disease which leads to an early death.Frans Eemil Sillanpaa won the 1939 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his deep understanding of his country's peasantry and the exquisite art with which he has portrayed their way of life and their relationship with Nature." "Fallen Asleep While Young" (published in America as "The Maid Silja", The Macmillan Company, 1933) is one of only a few of his works to have been translated to English [the others known to us being "Hurskas kurjuus" ("Meek Heritage") and Ihmiset suviyössä ("People in the Summer Night), all three of which are rather scarce to the market in first edition]. Along with Meek Heritage [Hurskas kurjuus (1919)] Fallen Asleep While Young is Sillanpaa's most important work and the tale was specifically cited by Per Hallström, Permanent Secretary of the Swedish Academy, in his speech presenting the Prize to Sillanpaa. It stands alone as his most-admired work and is the one which propelled him to international fame. Both the English and the American publications of this important novel are remarkably scarce and are, of course, rare in the dust jacket. Signed copies of any Sillanpaa's works in any language are quite scarce, and signed copies in English translation are absolute hens' teeth. A Very Good + copy of Frans E. Sillanpaa's most important and admired work, in the rare dust jacket, SIGNED BY FRANS E. SILLANPAA. RARE INDEED.

        Marlborough: His Life and Times, a full set of British first editions, inscribed and dated in Volume I to Churchill's godson the day after publication

      London: George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd., 1933. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This full set of four British first edition, first printings, is inscribed to Churchill's godson. The five-line inked inscription on the Volume I first free endpaper reads: "To | Roger Frewen | from | Winston S. Churchill | Oct. 7. 1933". The inscription is dated the day after publication, in the year that Churchill's godson nearly lost his life. All four volumes bear the bookplate of Roger Moreton Frewen affixed to the front pastedown. THE ASSOCIATION: Roger d'Hauteville Moreton Frewen (1914-1972) was the son of Churchill's first cousin, Hugh Frewen, and grandson of Churchill's Aunt Clara, his mother's eldest sister. Hugh's childhood was marked by visits with his Churchill and Leslie cousins, including Winston, who was nine years older than Hugh. Roger was born during the First World War while his father was serving on the front and his godfather, Winston, was First Lord of the Admiralty. Roger was born in London, educated in Switzerland and Cambridge. A near-fatal car accident in 1933 and tuberculosis contracted during recovery nearly killed Roger and permanently impaired his health. Churchill inscribed Volume I of this set for his godson in 1933. Despite his health, Roger joined the Foreign & Commonwealth Office in 1938. Posted to the British Embassy in Berne during WWII, Roger listened to German and Italian military signals and reported information to Britain, drove lorries with military supplies through occupied France, and rescued escaped prisoners of war by crossing into Germany and Italy and bringing them to safety in Switzerland. Driven by income needs as his family grew, in the decades after the war Roger had careers in finance and real estate. Roger's son, Jonathan, from whom these books come to us, recalls that Roger excelled at mathematics and languages and was "a kind man, an amusing raconteur... and a good Father." Jonathan also recalls that "Winston was an excellent godparent" who "never forgot a birthday or Christmas, no matter his duties." THE EDITION: Winston Churchill originally considered the idea of this monumental biography of his great ancestor, the first Duke of Marlborough, in 1898, returning to it in earnest in 1928. Ten years of research and writing produced the most substantial published work of Churchill's 1930s "wilderness years." The books measure 9.25 x 6.25 x 2 inches, each bound in plum cloth with beveled edges, the Marlborough coat of arms gilt on the front cover, and a gilt top edge, and profuse illustrations within. Unfortunately, the plum cloth bindings of Volumes I-III proved highly susceptible to sun fading. (A different, more fade-resistant dye was used in Volume IV.) CONDITION: This inscribed set is in very good condition overall. All four volumes are first printing. The inscribed Volume I retains a square and tight binding, with the usual spine fading, corner wear, and a bit of staining to the rear cover. The contents remain tight with modest spotting substantially confined to the first and final few pages and the fore and bottom edges. The balance of the set features tight bindings with only minor wear to extremities. Volumes II & III are spine faded and Volume IV has a line of differential color at the front cover fore edge. The contents of Volumes II-IV remain bright with spotting primarily confined to the first and final pages and fore and bottom edges. In addition to Roger Frewen's bookplates, volumes III and IV have gift inscriptions on the first free endpaper - each to the same recipient and dated "Christmas" in the year of publication. All four bookplates are identified by Roger's son as those used by his father prior to the Second World War. This set may be kept in the original bindings and fitted with custom preservation cases or finely rebound. A skilled binder would recover the original bookplates from the pastedowns. We are happy to provide referrals. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A97.2(I-IV).a, Woods/ICS A40(aa), Langworth p.166

        To A God Unknown

      Robert O. Ballou, New York 1933 - Signed and extensively inscribed by the author on an accompanying postcard. 1st edition, 1st printing book, in a 1st issue dustjacket with $2.00 price intact on lower front flap. Only 598 copies were printed by Ballou in 1933 (who went out of business after printing those 598 copies) and the book didn't have another edition till it was reprinted in1935 by Covici Friede and Heinemann in the U.K. Fine, tight and unread book with no previous owner markings, no soiling, clean page edges and the black upper page edges are very evenly dark and unspotted. There's just a tiny bit of softening to the binding cloth at spine ends, a tiny rectangular shadow to the cloth at the spine front-side lower edge and just a hint of bumping to upper binding corners to keep it from being As New. It is bound in light green cloth with still bright gilt lettering on the spine. The dustjacket is also Fine with one tiny edge nick lower front-side spine end professiona lly repaired internally, and slight toning to the spine lettering but no fading or toning of other spine colors. Truly beautiful with no tears, chips or fading. The book comes with a postcard written by Steinbeck in 1952, very clear writing/signature and quite a lengthy inscription to a young woman who was collecting author signatures and involved in 4H activities. She had written Steinbeck about trying to win a trophy and he quotes her his favorite motto in both Spanish and English of 'If you don't want to fly beware of wings' and talks to her of 'food became more important than fame' and that he'd tried once to sell his trophy. The postcard was sent from Steinbeck's New York City 72nd St. address and has 'Steinbeck' as part of the printed sender's address on the card. It is in Near Fine condition - a few tiny age-toned areas, one corner tip that had been turned down at some point (no material loss), a tiny pin prick upper middle edge, and a tiny crimp (no material loss) to the lower edge. The postcard is safeguarded now in a removable archival heavy-duty (16 gauge, so stiff enough not to need a backing board) removable clear holder that lets you see both sides of the card while in the holder. Also included is a custom clamshell case, bronze spine label, with a patterned-d esign outside cloth covering complementing the book's dustjacket and a fully lined ivory-colored soft flannel interior. The card in its holder is housed in an ivory-colored soft flannel flapped-closure pocket built onto the inside of the upper lid of the case, with the ivory flannel just a bit age-darkened. The book's dustjacket is in a removable, clear mylar dustjacket protecter. Rare examples of both a Steinbeck inscription and signature, and of Steinbeck's 3rd book which is his most scarce book to find in collector condition. ; 7-5/8" x 5"; 325 pages [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
