        Five Line Blocks of The Goops

      [circa 1930s]. Five partial line blocks from one of Gelett Burgess's Goops books that had been repurposed for a McNeil Laboratories advertisement circa 1930s. Zinc metal plates mounted on wood blocks of various sizes from approximately 2" x 2.5" to 6.5" x 4". A touch of damage to the head of one Goop, likely from the blocks being cut down from a larger full-sized image, else near fine. Laid in is an Autographed Letter Signed from Grace McNeil along with an envelope and the tattered original mailer from McNeil Laboratories. Grace McNeil was the wife of Robert Lincoln McNeil, who in 1933 founded McNeil Laboratories which is now part of Johnson & Johnson. She apparently sent the wood blocks to a friend to use and explains in the letter: "These are the remnants of the 'Goops.' The book of the original design was once lent to I-don't-remember-Whom. So this is all! I don't seem to have a printing of a third flyer [advertisement], which there is a die of. If you can use them the printer can cut away the names, as we had done."The Goops were a popular series of seven children's books published by Burgess starting in 1900 with Goops and How to be Them and ending with New Goops and How to Know Them in 1951, the year of his death. The books taught children manners by exposing readers to the poor behavior of the ever bumptious Goops children depicted through pictures and verse. The line blocks here show Goops cooking, sitting at a table eating, walking with packages, and using an early telephone. McNeil Laboratories incorporated the Goops into their advertising by cutting down some of the line blocks used to print their books and recycling select images that best fit their marketing needs.A nice example of licensing for this popular 20th Century children's book and the recyclable nature of materials during The Great Depression. .

        Fallen Asleep While Young [Signed] [Nuorena nukkunut; The Maid Silja]

      London: Putnam, 1933. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good +/very good +. A Very Good + copy of the first UK edition, first printing (age toning to the spine and to the board edges, tiny pull to cloth under the "U" in "YOUNG" on the front board -- not affecting lettering, lower right corner of front board bumped), in a Very Good+ example of the rare dust jacket (spine mildly darkened, rubbing to edges, tiny chips and tears to the spine ends and panel corners, one quite small chip and one tiny chip to upper front panel, tiny tear to each of the upper and to lower edges of rear panel), SIGNED BY FRANS E. SILLANPAA on the title page; Frans Sillanpaa's tale of a Finnish farmer's daughter, an only child and the last green shoot of an old family tree. As her father, though hardworking, also is impractical and improvident, the farm becomes a shambles and, at her father's death, Silja must move on. She performs domestic work on various farms and, one after another, the farmers fall in love with her. She, however, becomes afflicted with an incurable disease which leads to an early death. Frans Eemil Sillanpaa won the 1939 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his deep understanding of his country's peasantry and the exquisite art with which he has portrayed their way of life and their relationship with Nature." "Fallen Asleep While Young" (published in America as "The Maid Silja", The Macmillan Company, 1933) is one of only a few of his works to have been translated to English [the others known to us being "Hurskas kurjuus" ("Meek Heritage") and Ihmiset suviyössä ("People in the Summer Night), all three of which are rather scarce to the market in first edition]. Along with Meek Heritage [Hurskas kurjuus (1919)] Fallen Asleep While Young is Sillanpaa's most important work and the tale was specifically cited by Per Hallström, Permanent Secretary of the Swedish Academy, in his speech presenting the Prize to Sillanpaa. It stands alone as his most-admired work and is the one which propelled him to international fame. Both the English and the American publications of this important novel are remarkably scarce and are, of course, rare in the dust jacket. Signed copies of any Sillanpaa's works in any language are quite scarce, and signed copies in English translation are absolute hens' teeth. A Very Good + copy of Frans E. Sillanpaa's most important and admired work, in the rare dust jacket, SIGNED BY FRANS E. SILLANPAA. RARE INDEED.

A very rare complete set of Chapman's survey of Pueblo Indian pottery, an art which was an integral part of a 'native culture, unique among the patterns of the American Indian, [which] had its inception, and had reached its maturity, in the heart of the great southwestern area of the United States' (Introduction to vol.I) The one hundred beautiful plates depict specimens of Pueblo pottery selected from the collection of over nineteen hundred pots in the Indian Arts Fund in Santa Fé, New Mexico. Volume I gives a general introduction to the ceramic art of the Pueblo Indians of the southwestern United States, then concentrates on an overview of the pottery produced in the pueblos of Taos and Picuris, San Juan, Santa Clara, San Ildefonso, Tesuque, Cochiti, Santa Domingo and Santa Ana. This is followed by descriptions of the specific examples of the pottery shown in the plates. In volume II 'the sequence in geographical distribution of Pueblo villages is followed west, in consideration of the products of four remaining pottery making pueblos [Tsia, Ãcoma, Zuñi and Hopi] whose wares show still further variations in form and color, and in general a greater technical perfection of decoration' (Introduction).

      London: Jonathan Cape. (1933). The first novel by the author of the 20th century classic Under the Volcano. An extremely scarce book: reportedly only 1500 copies were printed and barely half were sold. A "cheap edition" was issued in 1935 which was probably the unsold remainder of the first printing, offered at a reduced price. This title and Under the Volcano (#11 on the Modern Library's list of the best 100 books of the 20th century) were the only two books Lowry published in his lifetime; by the time of his postwar classic, this was already a scarce book. This is a near fine copy in a slightly edgeworn but still near fine still near fine dust jacket, with the original price still present. Extremely scarce in any dust jacket, and this is probably the nicest copy we have ever seen. A 20th century rarity in exceptional condition. In a custom clamshell box. . First Edition. Hardcover.

        The River War

      This is an improbably pristine jacketed copy of the second printing of the 1933 edition. Though we are generally wary of words like "mint" and "as new", we can say with confidence that this must surely be the best surviving example. Churchill's second book, originally published in 1899, recounts his experiences and reflections concerning British involvement in the Sudan. The text is arresting, insightful, powerfully descriptive, and of enduring relevance. As a young officer in a colonial British army, Churchill was unusually sympathetic to the Mahdist forces and critical of the British army. This work offers us the candid perspective of the future great man of the 20th century from the distinctly 19th century battlefields where Churchill learned to write and earned his early fame. In 1933, a so-called "Second Cheap Edition" was made from plates of the 1902 edition with a bibliographically significant new introduction by the author explaining that "A generation has grown up which knows little of why we are in Egypt and the Sudan." There were ultimately five printings of this edition with at least seven different dust jackets issued (at least two for the 1933 second printing and two for the final, 1951 printing). The style of the illustrated first printing dust jacket was unique to the first printings (January 1933) and an unknown number of second printings (March 1933). This beautiful, jacketed copy of the second printing is not only extraordinary for its condition, but also of bibliographic interest. In his excellent Bibliography, Ronald Cohen notes that "although only 985 copies were ever sold" of this second printing, these copies "were bound only gradually, on 14 separate occasions between 31 March and 29 February 1940." Cohen notes that "this extended sale and large number of binding occasions would account for differences of cloth or dust jackets on second printing copies." (Cohen, Volume I, p.54) Here is what surely must be an early issue example of the second printing, since it bears the first printing-style dust jacket. Of the second impression, Richard Langworth (Connoisseur's Guide, p.34-35) does note "This impression has been found in a jacket identical to the first impression, adding 'net' to the spine price." This copy's dust jacket does have the word 'net' on the spine below the price and the book itself references the additional 1933 printing on the copyright page. Additionally, the binding cloth is a distinctly lighter and brighter shade of light purple than that of the first printing. As stated, this is an improbably superlative copy, nearly as new in a truly fine dust jacket. The illustrated dust jacket is simply stunning - beautifully crisp, bright, and complete, with only fractional wear to a few extremities and a nearly invisible short closed tear at the upper rear hinge. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. The volume beneath is immaculate and clearly unread. The cloth of the 1933 printings proved highly susceptible to wear, soiling, and toning. This copy features a flawless binding with no visible signs of wear or handling. The contents are likewise pristine - crisp, bright, and tight with no previous ownership marks and no spotting. The owner of this copy will know they have the best possible copy attainable without a time machine. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A2.4.b, Woods/ICS A2(da.2), Langworth p.33.
