        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. Connolly: The Modern Movement No. 74. An important Association Copy. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        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.

      Caxton Printers, Caldwell 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'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's final collaborative work and evolved from McWhorter'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', 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!"

        Winner Take Nothing

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons. 1933. First. Unbound long galleys. Old horizontal fold as issued, a modest stain at the top of the first few leaves, else a remarkably preserved near fine example, housed in a custom quarter morocco and cloth slipcase with morocco label gilt. Inscribed by Hemingway to Jane Mason: "For Jane with love -- Pappa." Mason was an attractive, wild, and probably bipolar 22 year-old free spirit whom Hemingway and his second wife, Pauline, met in Havana in 1931. She was the wife of G. Grant Mason, the head of Pan American Airways in Cuba. Hemingway and Jane Mason became fishing partners and then lovers in 1932 (this latter point is generally accepted, although some scholars suggest that Hemingway insinuated an affair that did not exist). The following year she jumped or fell from a second story window, breaking her back. When Hemingway discussed the incident with John Dos Passos he somewhat callously quipped, "She really fell for me," although some have argued that it was the author, more than the socialite, who was smitten. Mason went to New York City for a long recuperation, and eventually divorced her husband and married Arnold Gingrich, the editor of Esquire. It appears that by the 1940s she remained friends with Hemingway's ex-wife Pauline, rather than with the author himself. Hemingway scholars have argued that he saw in her a kindred, depressed spirit, or at the very least his very own Zelda Fitzgerald. Some of Hemingway's work, such as the Nick Adams story "A Way You'll Never Be," was written for her, and toward the end of his life Hemingway admitted that she was the model for his character Margot Macomber. A marvelous association. .

        Day Gone By; The Tragedy of a Fool + Postcard + Photograph

First edition hard back binding in publisher's original black cloth covers, gilt title and author lettering to the spine and the front cover. 8vo 8'' x 5½''. Contains 284 [32 page catalogue dated 1933] printed pages of text. Eric Barker was a prolific script writer and from the age of twenty he was producing three act plays, serious dramas, comedies, poetry and a lyricist for the music of Rex Burrows. He became one of the most famous faces in British comedy and got his start in show business during the Second World War, when he was part of the armed forces radio show 'Merry Go Round'. After the war the show continued and was renamed 'The Waterlogged Spa', with Eric and his wife, Pearl Hackney. The show's success led to Eric starring in other radio shows, where he achieved celebrity status due to his versatility in mimicking voices. By the mid-1950's he had made the move to the big screen, and found his niche in playing variations on the busybody sticking his nose into everyone's business, or, in the case of the 'Carry On' films, the gang's boss or some other authority figure who was usually on the receiving end of their shenanigans, most memorably in 'Carry on Constable' [1960]. Foxing to the page edges, bumps to the spine ends and corners. Near Very Good condition book in superb Fine condition dust wrapper, priced 7/6 to the spine. Dust wrapper without any tears, marks or chips whatsoever, flawless.

We currently hold in stock many other items of interest by Eric Barker. Member of the P.B.F.A.
