        The River War

      Â This is the first printing of the bibliographically significant 1933 edition of Churchill's second book in the scarce original dust jacket. Originally published in 1899, The River War recounts Churchill's 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. Here is the first printing of 1933, a near-fine plus copy in a good example of the scarce dust jacket, which is unique to the 1933 first printing. The light purple cloth binding of this edition proved highly susceptible to wear and soiling. Here the binding is square, clean, and tight, retaining uniform color, sharp corners, nicely rounded spine, and showing none of the usual scuffing. Slight wrinkling at the spine ends and perhaps a hint of darkening at the spine head corresponding with the dust jacket loss are the only trivial exterior flaws noted. The contents are crisp and bright, the book feeling unread. Differential transfer browning to the blank endpapers corresponding to the dust jacket flaps confirms that this book has spent its life jacketed. We note no internal spotting or previous ownership marks. Very light spotting is confined to the fore and top edges and the top edge also shows dust soiling. The dust jacket is a respectable and mostly complete example. The only significant dust jacket loss is a 1.5 inch wide by maximum .375 inch strip at the spine head. The jacket spine is toned and scuffed, but both the blue and black spine print remain distinct. The jacket faces show modest wear and a few short closed tears at the edges, as well as light overall soiling, heaviest at the flap folds. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A2.4.a, Woods/ICS A2(da.1), Langworth p.33.

[Why War?] Albert Einstein und Sigmund Freud. Paris: Internationales Institut Fur Geistige Zusammenarbeit Volkerbund, 1933. 62pp. original printed wrappers. Slight tanning toward page edges; wrappers darkened at spine and edges, with light wear to extremities. Very Good Condition.& & FIRST EDITION limited to 2000 printed copies..& & In 1932, Albert Einstein, invited by the League of Nations to address a letter on any subject to any individual, chose to correspond with Sigmund Freud on the possibilities of avoiding war. Einstein maintained the importance of establishing an independent judiciary body to mediate conflicts. Freud agreed with this idea but also insisted “ …that there is no likelihood of our being able to suppress humanity’s aggressive tendencies,” and that war is the ultimate expression of man’s distaste for the restraints of civilization.& & By the time of publication, Hitler had risen to power and the world moved closer each day toward a global conflict. Einstein, the committed pacifist, had resigned from the League of Nations over its inability to confront Nazi militarism. In October of 1933 he began his tenure at the Institute of Advanced Study at Princeton, New Jersey.& & Why War? was translated into multiple languages but this is the true First Edition.

        History of the Indian Tribes of North America; with biographical sketches and anecdotes of the principal chiefs [Volumes I and III only]

      Edinburgh: John Grant. Very Good+ in Very Good dj. 1933; 1934. New edition. Hardcover. NOISBN . [just a bit of shelfwear and light bumping to bottom edges/corners, one-time owner's rubber-stamped signature on front pastedowns (both volumes); jackets are uniformly age-toned (somewhat more at spines), with general soiling and some wrinkling along the top edges, but with no tears or chips]. (2 photogravure ports.; 72 color plates; 2 maps) Regrettably incomplete set (Volumes I and III only; Volume II is not present) of this classic work, originally published in three folio volumes issued in 1836, 1838 and 1844. The introduction to this "New Edition," by editor Hodge, presents an account of the creation of the original work (including much biographical information about the authors) and an extensive bibliographical discussion of numerous editions that followed, in particular the history of the work's most notable feature: the color portraits of many Native Americans, primarily tribal chiefs. Because the portraits, which hung originally at the War Department and later at the Smithsonian Institution, had been painted from life (and predated the widespread use of photography), in many instances they represent the only existing images of their subjects; and because most of the originals were destroyed in the 1865 Smithsonian fire, only the published reproductions remain. This edition contained 123 color plates in all, of which 72 are present in the two volumes on offer, as are the two color maps, at the end of Volume III. .

        Roll, Jordan, Roll [One of 23 Copies, Signed]

      NY: Robert O. Ballou. 1933. A presentation copy of the limited edition of this classic, with text by Peterkin and photographs by Ulmann. According to the colophon, 350 copies were numbered and signed, of which 327 were for sale. This is one of the 23 copies hors commerce, inscribed "For H.L.B." where the limitation number would have been, and signed by Peterkin and Ulmann. With 90 full-page stunningly produced copperplate hand-pulled photogravure plates, with tissue guards; the trade edition was not only a lower quality production, it only had 72 plates in total. The copies of the limited edition that were offered for sale came with a separate print of one of the photos and a slipcase. Neither is present here, and it is unknown if the hors commerce copies would have included such items, or if they were selling points intended to help market the commercial deluxe edition. Bound in brown textured paper over boards with white cloth spine and tips. Spine cloth slightly dusty, a hint of offsetting to the title page as the opposing photo lacks tissue; still a fine copy. We have never seen one of the hors commerce copies offered for sale, and none appear in the auction records. A scarce issue of a high spot of 20th century photography; a Roth 101 title. .

Trace of sunning along extreme top and bottom edges, otherwise a fine, bright copy, with the vulnerable spine stamping bright and fresh, in very good dust jacket with a few thin streaks of rubbing, a small chip at the lower tip of the upper joint, and an old, externally mended creased tear at the top corner of the rear panel. First edition, first U.S. issue of the trade issue. Sheets from this printing were also exported to Jonathan Cape for the British issue, and in later years (ca. 1935), additional sets of sheets were bound up by Bobbs- Merrill with a cancel title-leaf and different binding. Ms. Peterkin's prose sketches of southern African Americans, accompanied by Ulmann's photographic portraits, add up to a memorable collaboration in documentation that has become somewhat uncommon in this condition.

        A supplement to Elwes' monograph of the genus Lilium. Parts I to IX

      London.: Dulau & Co. Ltd. / The Royal Horticultural Society.. 1933-1940; 1960.. NINE PARTS, 30 handcolored lithographed plates and 10 color collotype plates (TOTAL OF 40 plates), accompanying text sheets, decorative paper wrappers, large folio approximately 22 x 15 inches (56 x 38 cm). Parts I to VII: Plates in very good to fine condition with occasional very minor faults at edges (bump to corner, light creasing, tiny edge tear). Wrappers have wear to spines, occasional light wear to edges, 1 x 1 inch lightly discolored area at lower left corner of front wrappers from removal of label. Parts VIII and IX: plates in very good to fine condition (first plate in last volume is loose); slight wear and soiling to wrappers, discolored area at lower left corner of front wrappers from removal of label. This important botanical monograph, the Supplement to Henry Elwes 1880 Monograph of the Genus Lilium highlights the extraordinary wealth of China and surrounding countries in the species Lilium. As Elwes' friend and collaborator Arthur Grove states in the introduction to the Supplement: "When Elwes prepared his Monograph about fifty species of Lilium were known to exist, and it was then the general opinion among experts that few remained to be discovered. With his customary acumen, Elwes himself expressed the view that 'The only regions from which much novelty can be expected are the Eastern Himalayas and the immense tract of unexplored and difficult mountain country which surrounds our Indian Empire on the north and east, and which lies round the head-waters of the Irrawaddy, the Bramputra, and the Yang-tse-kiang. --- The Corean peninsula may also produce some new species of Lily; but though the flora of that country is absolutely unknown to us, it may be expected that any indigenous plants of great beauty or horticultural value have already found their way into the gardens of Japan.' These words were written in 1880, some years before the botanical exploration of Western China began, and Elwes proved a wiser prophet than he knew. At that time, however, no one in England suspected that the area indicated by him was soon to prove richer in lilies than either Japan or Western North America." The first 7 parts of the Supplement were issued between 1933 and 1940. These were limited to 250 copies with 30 handcolored plates drawn and lithographed by Miss Lilian Snelling. The large folio size is used to great advantage to showcase the stunning flowers, with botanical details to the side. Each plate is accompanied by a descriptive text of 2 to 4 pages, including the habitat of the plant. More than half of these 30 plates feature plants from China, with all but 3 of the 30 from countries in Asia. This Supplement merits a place in Sitwell and Blunt's Great Flower Books, where it is noted: "A work of the greatest interest and value to all Lily growers. The Supplement is considerably finer both in text and illustration than the original monograph." (p.94). In 1960 and 1962 a further two parts were sponsored by the Royal Horticultural Society, containing "the new lilies introduced since 1933 by Kingdon Ward and other collectors. The text is by Dr. W.B. Turrill, F.R.S, lately Keeper of the Herbarium at Kew...The illustrations are by Miss Margaret Stones, another great botanical artist, who is following worthily in the steps of Miss Snelling." (from the introduction by F.C. Stern). In part VIII are five beautiful color plates of lilies, two of which are from North America - Lilium rubescens (southern Oregon, California) and Lilium Michiganense (Canada and Mid west USA),plus two of Asian origin (Yunnan and Manipur). In part IX, four of the flowers depicted are from North America - Lilium washingtonianum var. purpurascens (north-western California and Oregon); Lilium pitkinense (California); Lilium Pardalinum var. giganteum (Northern California); Lilium kelleyanum variant (California); the last is from the Himalayas. .

She wrote, with realism and dignity, plantation stories and stories of the Gullah African American tenant farmers of the Sea Islands and coastal regions. She was a sympathetic and outstanding commentator of the lives of this vanishing black culture. Doris Ulmann (1882-1934) was a well-respected photographer of the period who specialized in portraying the people of the "Southern Highlands" Appalachia and the coastal blacks Peterkin wrote about. Ulman&#39;s photographs of now vanished worlds capture her subjects with respect, insight, and grace and a transcendent quality which embodies the beauty and mystery of human experience.

During a short space of time, from 1931-34, Blair Hughes-Stanton (1902-81) produced woodcuts for six memorable books issued by the Gregynog Press, and this collection of four early poems by Milton was, in Harrop&#39;s view, "merely a vehicle for displaying the illustrations," which feature figures from classical mythology depicted in the artist&#39;s distinctive erotic style. Hughes-Stanton (1902-81) studied at the school of Leon Underwood at Hammersmith and had a long and productive career producing sophisticated expressive woodcuts as an avant-garde artist. Although he was pressured to make his striking, sometimes even savage, images look more like those of Eric Gill, he resisted and successfully established his unique personal style as an illustrator. The type use here is the graceful Perpetua designed by Gill, who was, with Hughes-Stanton, one of the two central figures in the English wood engraving revival. Although Gill is the more recognized artist, he never approached Hughes-Stanton in terms of intricacy. While prone to abrasions, the "Four Poems" binding is described by Harrop as "one of the most sucessful to come from the Press.".

        Down and Out in Paris and London [In the Rare Dust Jacket]

      NY: Harper & Brothers. 1933. The first American edition of Orwell&#39;s first book, in the rare dust jacket. An account of life among the poor in Paris and London, with whom Orwell lived for a number of months in order to experience their plight first-hand; it set the stage for his further nonfiction, which was marked by sympathy for the underdog and a disdain for dogma -- the exact elements that informed his best fiction. Mild bowing to the boards, with some foxing to the text and a few tiny spots to the rear cloth; a very good copy in a very good dust jacket with multiple short edge tears, a thumb-sized spot to the front panel, and a few very small chips to the edges and folds. Rare in jacket. . 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.
