        Bibliography Of The Cricket Works Of The Late F.s. Ashley-cooper

      Kidderminster: Priv., by the Author 1933 - F.S. Ashley-Cooper (1877-1932) is widely held to be the greatest authority on the history of cricket. He wrote, joint wrote or edited some 103 books and pamphlets on cricket. His collection of books and pictures – some 4,000 in number – was unrivalled at the time of his death. Not long after, under the guidance of fellow collector A.W. Shelton, it was acquired by the soft furnishings magnate, Sir Julien Cahn. Weston's bibliography is, by his own admission, probably incomplete. Notwithstanding, it is the fullest record we have of Ashley-Cooper's work. Small 8vo. [19]pp, interleaved. Portrait plate (of Ashley-Cooper). Original grey paper-covered boards, title in blue lettering to upper board. A fine copy. No.4 of a Limited Edition of 100 copies, signed by the author.

        Down and Out In Paris And London

      New York: Harper and Brothers, Publishers, 1933. Octavo, 292 pages. First American Edition. A fictionalized account of Orwell's time as a dishwasher in Paris and a tramp in London. The book was thrust into the food writing world when Anthony Bourdain declared it a favorite book and an inspiration for his Kitchen Confidential. An indulgent kitchen staff is nothing new, as Orwell notes, "the power of swallowing quarts of wine, and then sweating it out before it can do much damage, is one of the compensations of [this] life." Small bookplate to the undecorated side of the free front endpaper, otherwise very good. Lacking the scarce dust jacket, but a facsimile jacket us supplied, just for fun.

I hope to show that he was not only the foremost of English soldiers, but in the first rank among the statesmen of our history; not only that he was a Titan, for that is not disputed, but that he was a virtuous and benevolent being, eminently seviceable to to his age and country, capable of drawing harmony and design from chaos, and one who only needed an earlier and still wider authority to have made a more ordered and a more tolerant civilization for his own time and to help the future.&#148; (from the preface)

        Marlborough, His Life and Times, full set of finely bound British first editions

      George G. Harrap & Co 1933-1938, London - Churchill's monumental biography of his great ancestor, John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough took 10 years of research and writing and is the most substantial published work of Churchill's "wilderness years" in the 1930s. The final volume was published on the eve of the Second World War. "To understand the Churchill of the Second World War, the majestic blending of his commanding English with historical precedent, one has to read Marlborough." (Richard Langworth, A Connoisseur's Guide to the Works of Sir Winston Churchill). The first edition of Marlborough was originally issued in four volumes between 1933 and 1938. Here is an excellent full set of four first edition, first printings sumptuously bound by the renowned Bayntun-Riviere bindery of Bath, England. The binding is half pebble-grain crimson morocco over red cloth boards. Features include raised spine bands, ruled panels, decorated compartments, leather corners, gilt ruled transitions, gilt top edges, head and foot bands, and marbled endpapers. Spine presentation is spectacular. The binding is in excellent, nearly as-new condition, showing only a few tiny corner bumps and a tiny scratch or two on the leather. The contents are worthy of the binding, being crisp, clean, bright and tight - and clearly never read. All maps, plans, and illustrations are present and pristine. There is no spotting whatsoever and no inscriptions or previous ownership markings of any kind. The gilt top edges remain bright and the fore edges are unusually bright as well, with none of the usual toning. The sole flaw detected is some minor staining on the fore edges of Volumes III and IV, which does not affect the text margins. Please note that this large, heavy set may require additional shipping costs. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A97.1.a, Woods/ICS A40(aa), Langworth p.166. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Marlborough: His Life and Times, full set of jacketed six U.S. first editions in the publisher's slipcase

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1933 - Winston Churchill's monumental biography of his great ancestor, John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough, took years of research. The final volume was published on the eve of the Second World War. Churchill expert Richard Langworth says "To understand the Churchill of the Second World War, the majestic blending of his commanding English with historical precedent, one has to read Marlborough." The British first edition was issued in four volumes. The U.S. publisher chose to split the first two volumes into two books each, resulting in a six volume set that is otherwise identical in content to the British. Upon publication of the sixth and final volume in 1938, the publisher sold the full, uniform jacketed set in a boxed in a dark green publisher's slipcase for $16.50. Today such slipcased sets are quite rare indeed. Here is one - a full set of jacketed U.S. first edition, first printings in the original publisher's slipcase. The slipcase has done its job, and all six books within are pristine. The green cloth bindings are immaculate, square, and tight. The contents of all six volumes are pristine - crisp, clean, bright, and tight. No spotting. No inscriptions. Even the text block edges are unusually clean. All six are first edition, first printings, with the Scribner's "A" on the copyright page. The dust jackets are bright and clean with only light wear to extremities, including some scuffing to the spines. The only loss of note is minor chipping at the head of the Volume I spine to a depth of 1/8 inch. All six jackets are neatly price-clipped. The green publisher's slipcase is significantly edge worn and split along two of the back seams. Nonetheless, it is complete and notable for its scarcity in any condition.

        Marlborough: His Life and Times [Complete in 4 volumes]

      George G. Harrap (1933 - 1938), London - Large octavo. Original burgundy (purplish) cloth with gold-stamped Churchill family crest on cover and gold lettering on spine in original printed price-clipped dust jackets. Brown dj's in vols. I - III, dj in vol. IV in green. Beveled edges. Top edge gilt. Frontispiece in each volume. Captivating biography by Winston Churchill of the 1st Duke of Marlborough, John Churchill (1650 - 1722). The Duke was an English soldier and statesman, whose career spanned the reigns of five monarchs through the late 17th and early 18th centuries. The author was a descendant of the Duke. Churchill had conceived the idea of writing the work in 1929, when the conservative defeat in the general election meant that he was no longer a government minister. He seriously took on the task of writing in 1932 after pressure from his publishers. In the preface in Vol. I, Churchill writes: "It is my hope to recall this great shade from the past, and not only invest him with his panalopy, but make him living and intimate to modern eyes. I hope to show that he was not only the foremost of English soldiers, but in the first rank among the statesmen of our history; not only that he was a Titan, for that is not disputed, but that he was a virtuous and benevolent being, eminently serviceable to his age and country, capable of drawing harmony and design from chaos, and one who only needed an earlier and still wider authority to have made a more ordered and a more tolerant civilization for his own time, and to help the future."
