        The Hound of Death and Other Stories

      London: Odhams Press Limited,, 1933. Octavo. Original burgundy cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. Cloth mottled, titles oxidised as very often, spotting to endpapers and occasionally to contents. A very good copy in the exceptionally nice dust jacket with a little bleed to the verso but none of the usual fading at the spine. First edition, first impression. This title was published by Odhams when the Crime Club declined to do so. They later decided they had missed a trick and put out a small number in their own binding and dust jackets. Copies of this edition are far from scarce but pretty ones like the present example are uncommon.

Rebecca West's, A Letter To A Grandfather was not published until March, 1933, one month after this Collected volume was issued and therefore not included. A rather elusive Hogarth Press title, especially so in dustwrapper - we know of no other copy thus. One of only 500 cc. Kirkpatrick and Clarke A17a. Woolmer 321.

Corners rubbed, evidence of old damping affecting part of the cover and small spot on foredge, not especially objectionable. (see photos) Small bookplate of Roy Seaton Horton on front endpaper. Overall a very good copy. Firmly bound with bright and fresh plates and text. Color of the linoleum block prints is exceptional.

This is the only first-hand account of mission-era Juaneños we have. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE / FIRST STATE BINDING ?!?!?

      WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE, Stokes, 1933, 1st edition, a bright near fine copy of this classic world catastrophe novel in an equally bright vg+ first printing full color pictorial dust-wrapper with a small chip missing from the upper left corner of the bit faded dust-wrapper spine panel. Of three binding states, this is by far the scarcest and while we cannot prove it to be the first of the three such bindings, the logical evidence certainly seems to support this case as this binding has gold lettering on the spine only and measures an 1/8 inch higher than its other two counterparts; both shorter and identical in size, one with powder blue lettering on both the burgundy cloth spine and front cover and the other with black lettering on both the brick red cloth spine and front cover. While the priority of these bindings may remain unknown, it certainly was a long time custom for first state bindings to have gold-gilt lettering and later state bindings to be without. Also it seems most illogical for a contemporary later issue binding to be larger than its companions. Thus we argue and thus we rest, perhaps forever without certainty. The source book for 1953 film of the same name.

        Tasco en el ano de mil novecientos veintiocho.

      Manuel Casas, Mexico 1933 - Only edition, limited to 200 copies. (Note that the other portfololios we have of this series contained 50 photographs and were printed in the quantity of 300.) Quarto portfolio with ties. 55 silver-print photos, mounted on heavy card stock with backing. Wonderful, moody black and white studies of architecture in Tasco. Cervantes was born in 1898 and was a prominent eng ineer and restorer of ancient monuments in Mexico. Among his major publications, however, are collections of photographs of colonial Mexican cities and states. He also published several volumes of historical documents and papers, dying in 1953. Some insect damage to a few of the cardboard backings to the photos, in no case affecting the photos themselves. Very good.

Envelope addressed by Hemingway and signed by him. An excellent letter discussing bullfighting in considerable detail: "The feria at Salamanca has three corridas starting the 12th of September with bulls of Juan Cobaleda for Vicente Barrera, Fernando Dominguez (have never seen him) Rafael Vega (little brother of Gitanillo de Triana) – saw him in San Sebastian – very fine style with cape, plenty brave but green with the muleta. 13th – Portuguese Rejoneador Joao Branco Nuncio – and Villalta, Armillita Chico and La Serna (good program. La Serna very hot stuff this season / 4 Terrones bulls 4 Palugese of alves de Rio. 14th – Barrera, La Serna and this Dominguez six of Indolecio Garcia Maleo. If Dominguez is any good could be a good feria. We should have fun anyway. Will go either 10th or 11th and stay at Grand Hotel (new – supposed to be good) Will get you a room and the tickets. Will be damned fine to see you. Will goto the Patronato de Turismo here and reserve the rooms. If you want to come direct to Madrid we might all get a car and drive up. Handsome ride from here. Only about 211 kilometers I think. Wire me of write me your plans will you? Hotel Biarritz, Calle Victoria, 2 Madrid. Dont worry about intruding – it will be a hell of a pleasure to see you and to make the trip. Dominguez was a big shot as a novillero last year – Hasn't been so hot this – But they say is very good if he draws an easy bull. Amulleta Chico is the best fighter working today – La Serna is the big sensation of this year. I went to Bilbao to see him but he didn't show up". The recipient, Philip W. Bonsal (1903–1995), was a career diplomat and the last United States ambassador to Cuba. On another occasion he was the recipient of a fabulously drunken presentation copy of Death in the Afternoon.

        VOYAGE AU BOUT DE LA NUIT. Signed [Journey To The End Of The Night]

      Editions Denoel et Steele, Paris, Paris 1933 - Celine's legendary First Novel. Inscribed Presentation/ Association Copy of Some Significance. A very early reprint of the first edition published in 1932. 8vo, 18.5cm x 12cm. 623pp. A superb presentation inscribed to his friend, John Marks, who translated this very title into English the following year. A very good copy in a contemporary black buckram binding with titles on the spine in gilt on a maroon panel. There is some off-setting to the endpapers & the cheaper publisher's paper stock has lightly & evenly tanned. A faint stain to the fore-edge. The original card covers are not bound in. The presentation, on the first blank, reads: Johnny Marks from the author ~ May. 27. 1933. "Celine's Journey to the End of the Night (along with Death on the Installment Plan), were both very successful in the 1930s, & are unique: they come nearer than any other works of the century to creating the illusion of a living, infuriated, comic, vibrant voice. This voice comes off the pages.as though it were the pure real flux of a mind actively working." - (Martin Seymour-Smith in Novels and Novelists, 1980). A cornerstone of Modern World Literature, the publication of this work in 1932 had an immediate impact on author s of the period, such as Henry Miller (with Tropic of Cancer in 1934), George Orwell (with Down and Out in Paris and London in 1935), Henry Green & many others.

        Coyote Stories

      Caldwell: Caxton Printers. 1933. A scarce collection, edited and illustrated by Heister Dean Guie, with a foreword by Chief Standing Bear, and notes by L.V. McWhorter. McWhorter had collaborated with Mourning Dove on her first book, Co-Ge-We-A The Half-Blood, the first novel published by a Native American woman, and helped to get this collection published. This copy is inscribed by McWhorter to Spokane historian, author, and bookseller Jerome Peltier: "For/ Jerome Peltier/ Lucullus V. McWhorter/ Hunting Moon 29 Suns/ 1943 Snows [?]. For reasons unknown to us, it was initially inscribed to someone else, whose name has been rather seamlessly removed, with Peltier's now in its place -- either in McWhorter's hand or another's (Peltier's?) mimicking McWhorter's. Regardless, inscribed by McWhorter, a significant and somewhat controversial figure in the history of Native American literature, as a result of his association with Mourning Dove. Fine in a very good, spine-faded dust jacket with a bit of tape strengthening, and areas of former tape strengthening, on the verso. The book is scarce, and copies in dust jacket especially so. Copies signed by any of the principals involved with the creation of the book are exceptionally uncommon. First Edition. Hardcover.

        Coyote Stories. Edited and illustrated by Heister Dean Guie with notes by L.V. McWhorter (Old Wolf) and a foreword by Chief Standing Bear

      Caldwell: Caxton Printers. 1933. First Edition in dust jacket. 8vo; 229 pp. Pale yellow cloth with illustration of a coyote in brown on front board, red decorated dust jacket with images of animals such as berar, coyote, buffalo, deer, etc. in shadow silhouette, title, author, and illustrator in blck , jacket a bit rubbed at edges as is book, but very good overall. Cover designed by Hester Dean Guie. & Mourning Dove was the literary name chosen by Christine (or Christal) Quintasket, an Okanogan from the Colville Reservation of eastern Washington. Mourning Dove&#39;s education included sporadic attendance at the Goodwin Mission School near Kettle Falls, Washington, the Fort Spokane School for Indians, and the Fort Shaw Indian School in Montana. She also briefly attended a secretarial school in Alberta where she learned to type and improved her English. But it was working as a migrant worker that Mourning Dove earned her livelihood as an adult. By day, she earned a meager living picking fruits and vegetables, and at night, she wrote in her camp-tent, experiencing years of poverty and physical hardship. In 1914 she met Lucullus V. McWhorter, an archaeologist and Indian rights advocate, and he encouraged her to write and publish, collaborating with her on writing projects, including her 1916 novel CO-GE- WE-A, the first novel published by a Native American woman. & COYOTE STORIES, a collection of Salishan trickster tales and genesis stories, was McWhorter and Mourning Dove&#39;s final collaborative work and evolved from McWhorter&#39;s unpublished manuscript, "Okanogan Sweat House." A very scarce collection, COYOTE STORIES is edited and illustrated by Heister Dean Guie, a newspaper reporter, and includes a foreword by Chief Standing Bear and notes by McWhorter. The book contains 27 tales, mostly featuring the trickster figure Sin-ka-lip&#39;, the coyote, as the main character. It received positive reviews and reached its second printing by 1934. Although it was promoted as a collection of tales for children and general audiences with little exposure to Native American literature and culture, COYOTE STORIES was meant to be more than entertaining bedtime stories. Mourning Dove intended COYOTE STORIES to force white Americans to reconsider assimilationist practices that taught Native American children to reject and ridicule traditional stories. As Standing Bear states in the Forward: "These legends are of America, as are its mountains, rivers, and forests, and as are its people. They belong!"
