        Roll, Jordan, Roll.

Original terra-cotta cloth stamped in black on the spine. Original dust jacket (unclipped; spine faded). Very good. 251 pages. No signature or bookplates. Pulitzer-Prize winner. Ulmann's photographs in the Pictorialist/Modernist mode capture the lives of former slaves and their progeny on a South Carolina plantation along the Gullah coast. A highly romantic view of the Southern Black American that, though now dated and politically incorrect, still magically evokes a bygone world. Cf. Roth, Book of 101 Books, p. 78-79.

        Adam et Eve *

      B. Grasset, Paris 1933. - Broché, couverture décorée rempliée. Un brin défraîchi pour un amateur de paradis. L'un des 300 exemplaires de presse numérotés sur Alfa. Avec un envoi étrangement lyrique et copieux à Jacques Copeau (cela semble bien dans la note), daté de décembre 1933. C'est le plus tardif des trois dont nous disposons; le premier orne un ouvrage publié en 1913, la graphie semblant être d'époque. Cet exemplaire paradisiaque témoigne de la pérennité des bonnes relations entre les deux hommes, malgré l'abandon de Ramuz à un projet pour lequel Copeau tenta vainement l'écrivain de poursuivre ses efforts, en vue d'une oeuvre scénique intitulée "La guerre des filles" qui n'aboutira pas.[Bringolf 42b]

        ALL MEN ARE BROTHERS (Shui Hu Chuan). Translated from the Chinese

      London:: Methuen & Co.,. 1933.. 8vo. 1st UK edition. xiii, [3], 1279, [3 (blank)] pp.. Black cloth binding with gilt stamped title lettering. TEG. Yellow dust jacket.. VG+ (offset to eps)/VG+ (modest wear).. Water Margin (Shui Hu Zhuan, sometimes abbreviated to Shui Hu), also translated as Outlaws of the Marsh, Tale of the Marshes, All Men Are Brothers, Men of the Marshes, or The Marshes of Mount Liang, is a 14th C. novel attributed to Shi Nai'an. Praised as an early "masterpiece" of vernacular fiction, it is renowned for the "mastery and control" of its mood and tone. The work is, however, also known for its use of vivid, humorous and especially racy languages, with the novel written in vernacular Chinese rather than Classical Chinese; it is considered one of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature. [Wiki]. Buck's translation one of the first to appear in English. Uncommon, especially in dust jacket. . Frontis plate. Drawings.

        The Great War, the publisher's Home Library binding in four volumes with original cellophane and paper wrappers

      Here is a four-volume set of the Home Library issue in previously unknown cellophane and paper wrappers.  The Great War is the first illustrated edition of Churchill's history of WWI, The World Crisis.  This edition was originally published in 26 magazine format parts in 1933 and 1934. "Magazine format" does not do justice to the publication, which is profusely illustrated on very durable, heavy paper.  The publisher subsequently offered two different 3-volume binding options. A final publisher offering in 1935 was this four-volume set produced jointly with The Home Library Book Company.  This last binding option is the most elaborate and striking.  It features silver, gilt, and blind stamped decoration on marbled red boards with beveled edges, marbled endpapers, and gilt top edges.  This binding commands attention on the shelf.  What particularly commands our attention about this set - and indeed makes it a minor bibliographic discovery - is the presence of thick, clear visqueen-type jackets with heavy red paper flaps that nicely complement the red marbled endpapers.  These jackets give every appearance of being contemporary to the books.  The jackets are age-yellowed, quite brittle, and shrunk, with wear and losses at the extremities and a few small other chips - as we would expect given the age and material.  The thick, heavy boards have been very slightly warped, consistent with the contraction of the aging jackets over time.  The books show minor soiling at the binding extremities where the jackets have receded due to shrinkage, but are notably clean beneath the jackets.  Moreover, though we are incapable of chemical analysis to definitively identify the jacket material, the timing for some variation of Cellophane fits, with widespread introduction of cellulose film to the United Kingdom in the 1930s by the British textile company Courtaulds, which was producing a viscose film named viscacelle in 1930 and by 1935 had evolved into British Cellophane.  The fact that the jacket material ages very poorly combined with the commanding attractiveness of the bindings beneath would explain why we have not previously seen any such jackets.  Undoubtedly, the few unattractive survivors such as these would be likely to be discarded.  The books beneath the jackets are in very good condition.  The bindings are clean and tight, apart from the previously mentioned minor soiling at the binding extremities and slight warping of the boards caused by the jackets.  The contents remain bright and we find no previous ownership marks.  Modest spotting appears confined to the prelims and page edges.  The fore and bottom edges are a bit soiled.  The top edge gilt remains bright, if a bit dusty.  In short, this is not the very nicest set we have ever seen, but is the only set we have ever seen thus, bearing the jackets and thus commanding collector attention.  Please note that this heavy set may require additional postage.  Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.9.d, Woods/ICS A31(dc), Langworth p.118

        Vol. 21 of 29 Atlases of Insurance Maps for Queens. Rockaway Peninsula & Broad Channel

      New York: Sanborn Map Company, 1933. hardcover. very good. Atlas. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Massive elephant folio. Decorative calligraphic titles, indices, and key maps. Contains a set of 73 maps along with changes recorded on paste-on correction slips through 1973. Quarter leather binding with gilt title on front and spine. Slight wear to original protective canvas cover. This volume includes Breezy Point, Belle Harbor, Arverne, Fort Tilden and Jacob Riis Park. Also included is a "Graphic Map of Volumes" of the Borough of Queens. The Sanborn map collection consists of a uniform series of large scale maps, dating from 1867 to the present depicting the commercial, industrial, and residential sections of some twelve thousand cities and towns in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The maps were designed to assist fire insurance agents in determining the degree of hazard associated with a particular property and therefore show the size, shape and construction of dwellings, commercial buildings, and factories as well as fire walls locations of windows and doors, sprinkler systems, and types of roofs. The maps also indicate widths and names of streets, property boundaries, building use, and house and block numbers. They show locations of water mains, giving their dimensions, and of fire alarm boxes and hydrants. Sanborn maps are an unrivaled source of information about the structure and use of buildings in American Cities. The collection includes some fifty thousand editions of fire insurance maps comprising an estimated seven hundred thousand individual sheets. The Library of Congress holdings represent the largest extant collection of maps produced by the Sanborn Map Company. The majority of the maps were acquired by the Library through copyright deposit, but the collection was substantially enriched in 1967 when the Bureau of the Census transferred to the Library of Congress a complete set. The 1,899 loose-leaf binders were particularly noteworthy because they included later editions than those previously acquired by the Library. The Bureau of the Census set of maps had been regularly updated by printed, paste-on corrections supplied by the Sanborn Map Company, whereas the Library of Congress copies were retained in the form in which they were copyrighted.
