        The River War

      Eyre & Spottiswoode, London 1933 - This is the first printing of the bibliographically significant 1933 edition of Churchill's second book in the scarce original dust jacket. Originally published in 1899, The River War recounts Churchill's experiences and reflections concerning British involvement in the Sudan. The text is arresting, insightful, powerfully descriptive, and of enduring relevance. As a young officer in a colonial British army, Churchill was unusually sympathetic to the Mahdist forces and critical of the British army. This work offers us the candid perspective of the future great man of the 20th century from the distinctly 19th century battlefields where Churchill learned to write and earned his early fame. In 1933, a so-called "Second Cheap Edition" was made from plates of the 1902 edition with a bibliographically significant new introduction by the author explaining that "A generation has grown up which knows little of why we are in Egypt and the Sudan." There were ultimately five printings of this edition. Here is the first printing of 1933, a near-fine plus copy in a good example of the scarce dust jacket, which is unique to the 1933 first printing. The light purple cloth binding of this edition proved highly susceptible to wear and soiling. Here the binding is square, clean, and tight, retaining uniform color, sharp corners, nicely rounded spine, and showing none of the usual scuffing. Slight wrinkling at the spine ends and perhaps a hint of darkening at the spine head corresponding with the dust jacket loss are the only trivial exterior flaws noted. The contents are crisp and bright, the book feeling unread. Differential transfer browning to the blank endpapers corresponding to the dust jacket flaps confirms that this book has spent its life jacketed. We note no internal spotting or previous ownership marks. Very light spotting is confined to the fore and top edges and the top edge also shows dust soiling. The dust jacket is a respectable and mostly complete example. The only significant dust jacket loss is a 1.5 inch wide by maximum .375 inch strip at the spine head. The jacket spine is toned and scuffed, but both the blue and black spine print remain distinct. The jacket faces show modest wear and a few short closed tears at the edges, as well as light overall soiling, heaviest at the flap folds. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A2.4.a, Woods/ICS A2(da.1), Langworth p.33. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Planning - a Broadsheet Issued by PEP (Political and Economic Planning) Volume 1 - Vol 32 (i.e. Issues 1 - 498)

      London - 1933 - 1966. (Lacking only three issues - 415, 466, 471). An amazing, highly unusual long run of this diverse publication. Volumes 1 - 18 are clothbound, slightly marked and faded but very sound; the rest are in original parts, a few minor imperfections, but overall very good. A quick glance through quickly shows the range of articles : The Use of Statistics (1934). The Fuel problem (1935). The State of the Highlands (1936). The Health Services (1937). The Control of Rivers (1938). London Under Bombing (1941). Refugees in Britain (1944). The Unmarried Mother (1946). Employment of Women. The Opera in Britain (both 1948). The Football Industry. The Gramophone Record - industry and art. (both 1951). Social Security and Unemployment in Lancs (1951). Progress of the Gas Turbine (1953). The Menace of Air Pollution (1954). Graduate Wives (1954). The Cricket Industry (1956). Prospects for Nuclear Power (1959). Young Europeans in England. Housing Associations. Cartel Policies and the Common Market (all 1962). The Parliament of the European Communities (1964). [From the library of the naturalist and conservationist Richard Fitter, whos was a member of PEP for four of its early years.]Political and Economic Planning (PEP) was a British policy think tank, formed in 1931 in response to Max Nicholson's article A National Plan for Britain published in February of that year in Gerald Barry's magazine The Week-End Review. The original members included Nicholson and Barry, the zoologist Julian Huxley, the agronomist Leonard Elmhirst, the financier Sir Basil Blackett, the civil servants Dennis Routh and Sir Henry Bunbury, the research chemist Michael Zvegintzov, and Israel Sieff, a director of Marks & Spencer. Sieff was Chairman in the 1930s, followed by Elmhirst in 1939 and by Nicholson in 1953. It was a non-governmental planning organisation financed by corporations. This prolific organisation was influential in the formation of the National Health Service, World War II and post-war planning, and the development of the African colonies. After the war it shared the offices of The Nature Conservancy in Belgrave Square, London, producing reports such as Opportunities in Industry (1957) and Advisory Committees in British Government (1960). In 1978 PEP merged with the Centre for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP), and became the Policy Studies Institute (PSI). [VERY HEAVY - POSTAGE WILL NEED TO BE INCREASED.] [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Young and Evil

      Paris: Obelisk Press. (1933). First. First edition, limited issue. Self-wrappers. Brown butcher paper wrappers printed in red. A near very good copy with modest loss at the spine ends (affecting one letter in the title), and a few pages roughly opened caused chips in the margins, nevertheless a handsome and pleasing copy, lacking the extremely uncommon wraparound band. This copy is from the library of the Obelisk Press publisher Jack Kahane and is copy 6 of 50 numbered copies printed on Pure Rag Lafuma. While supposed to be signed by both authors, this copy is Signed by Ford only (as is the only other known copy of the limited issue of which we are aware). A notorious and exceptionally scarce novel of homosexual life in Greenwich Village. Parker met Ford while writing for Ford's amateurishly produced Blues magazine, which was published in Ford's parents' home in Mississippi during 1929-30. Tyler encouraged him to move to New York and there they spent a year exploring the gay subcultures of Greenwich Village and Harlem before writing the book. Considered by some to be the first modern gay novel, Gertrude Stein called this book "The novel that beat the Beat Generation by a generation." The front flap of the self-wrapper has blurbs by Stein and Djuna Barnes; according to G. Thomas Tanselle in his 1971 paper "Book-Jackets, Blurbs, and Bibliographers" (citing another source) this was the only wrapper blurb contributed by Stein during her lifetime, and possibly the only one from Barnes as well. .

        Roll, Jordan, Roll

      New York: Robert O. Ballou,, 1933. Octavo. Original, first issue, coarse blue cloth, titles to spine gilt, top edge black, others untrimmed. With the photographic dust jacket. With 70 full page photographic illustrations by Ulmann. Text block rather tanned as usual and with more severe tanning to 2 pages from some loosely inserted clipping, spine lettering a little dull as always and with some fading to the head, but a pretty decent copy of this poorly produced book. dust jacket tanned, rubbed and lightly marked with a chip at the top of the spine panel costing the first "Roll". First edition, first printing, trade issue. There was a special paper issue of an intended 350 copies on better paper, with 90 images and an extra signed proof gravure. Plainly far fewer than 350 were issued since copies turn up infrequently and might be worth now as much as $50,000! A superlative and remarkable work. Ulmann and her cohort headed south when the depression was biting hardest in a chauffeur-driven limousine to make a photographic record of the lives of first and second generation "free blacks". Despite - or possibly due to - the incongruity of the people either side of the lens Ulmann's images remain strangely haunting. Not hard like Lange, or crystalline like Evans, but extraordinary all the same.
