The original spine has been neatly replaced with a white cloth spine with gilt climbing vine design, and with the title in gilt on a matching white cloth label.

With a color frontispiece plus 7 other color illustrations by Rackham, plus 60 B&W illustrations by Rackham, plus white endpapers with line illustrations and decoration in gold by Rackham. The 7 color text illustrations all have a blank facing page on which the title of the illustration is printed, and the book contains a 2 page 'illustrators preface' written by Rackham.

Giacomo Bresadola (Ortisè, 14 febbraio 1847 &#150; Trento, 9 giugno 1929) è stato un presbitero e micologo italiano. Completò le scuole elementari a Montichiari (BS), le scuole tecniche a Rovereto, e a Trento finì il Ginnasio. Proprio a Trento, maturata la vocazione al sacerdozio, nel 1866 si dedicò agli studi teologici che completò 4 anni dopo, quando fu ordinato sacerdote. Esercitò a Baselga di Pinè, poi a Roncegno, infine nel 1874 fu nominato parroco di Magràs, frazione del comune di Malé in Val di Sole. A Magràs si dedicò presto allo studio della botanica approfondendo le proprie conoscenze sui muschi e i licheni, poi iniziò lo studio dei funghi sotto lo stimolo di Padre Giovanella da Cembra, un frate cappuccino del convento di Malè, al quale dedicò successivamente una nuova specie, l'Omphalia giovanellae, (Clitopilus giovanellae (Bres.) Sing.). Nel 1885, trasferito a Trento, presso la Curia Vescovile, svolse l'incarico di amministratore del Capitolo della Cattedrale fino al 1910. Da allora visse come pensionato a Trento, continuando la sua attività di micologo. Si formò in campo micologico acquistando e leggendo le opere del Venturi e del Vittadini, ma evento decisivo fu la sua lettera al prof. Saccardo con la quale chiedeva di avere le sue opere e dava la sua disponibilità per ricerche micologiche in Trentino. Da allora, infatti, nacque una proficua e durevole amicizia oltre che ad una lunga collaborazione. Saccardo non fu l'unico, infatti Bresadola cominciò a collaborare con le più importanti riviste botaniche europee e con numerosi micologi di fama internazionale. Tra questi basta ricordare Lucien Quélet, Patouillard, Sydow, Henning, Barla e Massalongo. Di fondamentale importanza, fu il rapporto di collaborazione con Bourdot e Galzin nello studio intrapreso dai due micologi francesi sugli Aphyllophorales. Oltre ad essere stato uno dei fondatori della S.M.F. e membro dell'Accademia Pontificia dei Lincei, Bresadola, nella sua vita aveva ricevuto molte onorificenze, tra cui: socio benemerito della Società Botanica Italiana, socio corrispondente della "Botanical Society of America", membro onorario della B.M.S., socio onorario della Deutsche Gesellschaft für Pilzkunde. La morte lo colse il 9 giugno 1929, a Trento nella sua modesta abitazione, mentre stava ancora lavorando all'"Iconographia Mycologica", opera che fu poi ultimata postuma grazie all'interessamento della Società Botanica Italiana e del Museo di Storia Naturale di Trento. In the title-page:: "Societa botanica italiana, Museo civico di storia naturale di Trento". Leaflets in half-cloth editorial portfolio. A lot of pencil and pen glosses. Binding of the first volume with wears. The others volumes are in very good condition. Collationed and complete. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      [n.p., n.d.] 1933 - One of four copies authorized by W. A. Graham, Colonel J. A. G. D. Chief, Military Affairs Section in 1933. Tall, thick quarto. Red buckram, gold stamping on spine, 676 pp. R. S. Ellison's personal copy with his name and the title stamped in gold on the spine. Laid-in is a seven-page article, RENO COURT OF INQUIRY by Bruce R. Liddic, that provides a great deal of insight and understanding of this book. Bruce Liddic says "There are only two sources upon which to base the transcriptions of the Inquiry's stenographer: 1) The official longhand written record now stored in the National Archives, and 2) The Chicago Times' account which was printed in that newspaper during the inquiry. All other copies, editions, versions or variations, no matter the accuracy or the end product, are merely a reprint/retype of number one or two or a combination of number one and two above." Prior to being given to the National Archives in 1941, the "Official Record" of the Reno Inquiry was kept by the Judge Advocate general from 1879 until 1941. During this period Colonel W. A. Graham [1919-1920] received permission to make a longhand copy of the Official Record of 1879. In 1921 Graham produced ten copies of the 125 page abstract. Then in 1933, due to the original document deterioration, Graham had four more copies typed. Graham retained one copy, one was given to the National Archives, and two were given to the Judge Advocate Library. From these impressions, three more copies were typed under Graham's direction, by Miss Helen Bury, his secretary, and Miss Frances J. Burke. One of these is in the Newberry Library, one is unaccounted for, and one copy given to R. S. Ellison in 1942. Ellison, a Western Americana historian, is best remembered as being involved with Brig. General William Carey Brown in obtaining the Camp notes from Mrs. Camp after his death. Written in Ellison's hand in pencil are the words, "Received 3-11-42," on one of the preliminary [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Water Wheel.

      [Ithaca:] Dragon Press, Duffield and Green, 1933 - Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. Spine rather dull, traces of damp to lower board, contents somewhat browned but a very good copy in the chipped and frayed dust jacket. First edition, first printing. With the author's signed presentation inscription to the front free endpaper: "This one for them Abernathys for having helped me in so many ways, sincerely Julian Mar.7.33." The recipient was Milton Abernathy, the editor of Contempo, a short lived but notable little magazine published in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, from 1931 to 1934, to which Shapiro (as John Sanford) contributed. This was Shapiro's first novel and the only one to bear his real name. John A. Sanford (1904-2003) was born Julian Lawrence Shapiro, but adopted his pen-name to forestall anti-Semitism, taking the name from his protagonist in The Water Wheel. A friend of Nathanael West whom he followed to Hollywood in a less than stellar attempt to become a screen writer, in 1938 he married the far more successful writer Marguerite Roberts. The couple were victims of the McCarthy witch hunt in the 1950s, and their refusal to testify led to their blacklisting in the film business for two decades. Shapiro may be considered one of the least justly neglected greats of American literature. His work was innovative and uncompromising - typically written without hope of popular acclaim, his books remain notably fresh. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Presenting Lily Mars

      Garden City: Doubleday Doran. 1933. First. First edition. A small stain on the copyright page (and the facing dedication page), a little smudging to the boards, a near fine copy in a partially price-clipped, very good plus dustwrapper with a small chip at the crown and light edgewear. Nicely Inscribed by the author to his close friend, and occasional co-author, Harry Leon Wilson: "For H.L., who may be reminded of something or somebody, here and there --- N.B.T. Aug. 26, 1933. Kennebunkport." Interestingly, Tarkington signs using his true first initial "N" for his real first name "Newton," which he seldom did -- perhaps he did so as a lighthearted jab at Wilson, who often went by the name "H. Leon Wilson." The novel was bought by MGM as a dramatic vehicle for Lana Turner, but the script turned out to be too lighthearted and Norman Taurog&#39;s 1943 film version was instead a musical, showcasing Judy Garland as the small-town girl who impresses Broadway producer Van Heflin. A great association copy: Tarkington and Wilson collaborated on a number of plays early in their careers, several of which were filmed, probably most notably, The Man From Home in 1914 (and re-filmed again in 1922), one of the earliest feature films directed by Cecil B. De Mille. Another collaboration was Cameo Kirby, filmed first in 1914, but most notably by John Ford in 1923 with John Gilbert, Alan Hale, and Jean Arthur. Wilson, who was married to Rose O&#39;Neill (creator of the Kewpie Doll), wrote several other books that were filmed, including Merton of the Movies, Ruggles of Red Gap, and Bunker Bean. Over sixty films were made from Tarkington&#39;s works, including The Magnificent Ambersons. .
