        Les Amours Pastorales de Daphnis et Chloe

      1933 - Translated by J. Amyot, edited and corrected by Paul-Louis Courier. 26 illustrations drawn and cut on wood by Gwendolen Raverat. Initials hand-drawn in blue by Graily Hewitt and assistants, printed in Ptolemy type with marginal notes in red. One of 290 copies. 4to., original vellum-backed green paper covered boards with stamp designed by Raverat in gilt on upper cover, in original patterned paper covered slipcase, uncut. Chelsea, The Ashendene Press. Hornby's second attempt at this work, the first being printed on Japanese vellum. Due to the ink's very slow drying on the paper, the sheets were packed before they were ready, leading to very bad off-set on most of them. Hornby declared that he destroyed all except 10 copies of this edition (we have since discovered the eleventh survivor). At the second attempt he abandoned the Japanese paper in favour of the easier Batchelor paper used here.An extremely good copy, with only a tiny chip to the paper of the lower cover, of a handsomely illustrated Ashendene. Raverat's illustrations were, as Colin Franklin points out, ?the only worthwhile original illustrations in an Ashendene book? This was a fitting end to the Press as this was the last book, other than the bibliography, to be printed there. Franklin, ?The Ashendene Press?, pp. 242-3.

        The River War, An Account of the Reconquest of the Soudan

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1933. First U.S. edition. Hardcover. This is the U.S. first edition of Churchill's second book in the striking original dust jacket. Originally published in England in 1899, this was one of the few Churchill books that did not see a U.S. first edition concurrent with the British. In 1933 a new edition was issued in both England and, for the first time, in the U.S. 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.” This is one of just 1,040 U.S. first edition copies issued. Per Richard Langworth (p.35), binding was probably done in England, using English sheets and a Scribner's title page cancel, since copies are bound in the identical lilac cloth as the Eyre & Spottiswoode edition of the same year. However, the striking dust jacket is unique to this U.S. first edition, printed in red and black, bearing R. C. Woodville's dramatic illustration of the Charge of the 21st Lancers. This copy is very good in a very good minus dust jacket. The cloth binding is tight and clean and has obviously spent life jacketed, despite shelf wear to the bottom edges, light wear to extremities, and a hint of spine toning. The contents retain a crisp feel despite some age-toning. The book feels unread. We find no spotting or previous ownership marks. Even the page edges are clean. Mild differential toning to the endpapers corresponds to the dust jacket flaps, confirming that this copy has spent life jacketed. All maps and plans are present. The dust jacket is complete, apart from fractional loss to the spine ends and corners and a neatly price-clipped upper front flap. There is light toning to the spine, minor overall soiling, and a tiny, stray ink mark in a blank margin of the lower left front face. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. The River War recounts Churchill's experiences and perspective on British involvement in the Sudan. The text is arresting, insightful, powerfully descriptive, and of enduring relevance. Mohammed Ahmed was a messianic Islamic leader in central and northern Sudan in the final decades of the 19th century. In 1883 the Mahdists overwhelmed the Egyptian army of British commander William Hicks, and Great Britain ordered the withdrawal of all Egyptian troops and officials from the Sudan. In 1885, General Gordon famously lost his life in a doomed defense of the capitol, Khartoum, where he had been sent to lead evacuation of Egyptian forces. Though the Mahdi died in 1895, his theocracy continued until 1898, when General Kitchener reoccupied the Sudan. With Kitchener was a very young Winston Churchill, who would participate in the battle of Omdurman in September 1898, where the Mahdist forces were decisively defeated. In his book about the British campaign in the Sudan, Churchill - a young officer in a colonial British army - was unusually sympathetic to the Mahdist forces and critical of Imperial cynicism and cruelty. This is manifestly evident in the highly critical comment about Kitchener prominently quoted and bordered in red on the front face of the dust jacket – something else unique to this first U.S. edition. Here is a chief figure of the Second World War on horseback on a colonial battlefield, participating in what has been called by some the last "genuine" cavalry charge 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.

        Dolores, First Edition.

      1933 - Set of 12 white line wood engravings for the first edition of Buckland Wright's Dolores, including an extra design not used in the book and the head and tail piece. Each print is on a sheet of japon paper 25 x 16 cms, 10 of the images are 10 x 5 cms and two smaller images 5 x 5 cms which were the head- and tail-pieces for the book. Each of the prints is on thin proofing paper, mounted by the artist on thick handmade paper with the studio stamp of the artist on the back. Dolores was privately printed in only 50 copies by A.A.M. Stols in Maastricht for Baron Emile van der Borch, and is very rarely on the market. It was comprised of 11 white line wood engravings, each of the engravings is a female nude. Buckland Wright worked further on the blocks after this edition was published and hence there is a second edition in 40 copies in which the images appear as silhouettes. An extra design not used in the book is included here but not the tailpiece engraving which included three ravens which were the coat of arms of the van der Borch family. Baron van der Borch was a prominent patron and admirer of Buckland Wright and he began comissioning work from him after seeing his work for the JBW Editions Cupid's Pastime which appeared in 1935. He comissioned Deux Poà mes and Dolores from him amongst several other items. Unfortunately the commissions were stopped by the Nazis who shot the Baron whilst in his early twenties.

        Ligne-droite ».

      - (vers 1933). 6 cahiers d’écolier manuscrits in-8, sous chemise à lacets toilée, dos papier.(10) ff. et 27 ff. (n° pp. 41-67) ; 33 ff. (n° pp. 56-95) ; 47 ff. (n° pp. 97-142) ; 50 ff. ; 40 ff. (n°1-40) ; 51 ff. Importante série de cahiers manuscrits contenant le 1er jet d’un roman inédit, écrit à quatre mains, par Jean-Toussaint Samat (1891-1944), journaliste et romancier, et Jean Monsarrat, capitaine dans l’aviation militaire et délégué de l’aéro-club de France. L’ensemble est conservé dans une chemise portant le titre « Jean-Toussaint Samat, Manuscrit en train ».Le roman « Ligne-droite » est sous-titré « roman d’aventures policières et aériennes ». Il raconte, en 34 chapitres, l’histoire policière d’un ingénieur aéronautique de 50 ans, avec des voyages au long cours, Los Angeles, la Floride, Tokyo., avec son lot d’assassinats! Il semble que Monsarrat ait demandé de l’aide à l’écrivain Samat, spécialisé dans le roman policier et d’espionnage, auteur prolifique, pour rédiger l’ouvrage. Monsarrat avait été lieutenant-aviateur pendant la Grande Guerre. Les cahiers montrent plusieurs étapes d’élaboration du projet. Les n° 1-4 comportent des canevas et passages rédigés de la main de Monsarrat, tandis que le cahier (5), portant sur la couverture les 2 noms, contient un avant-propos rédigé par Samat, avec quelques morceaux dactylographiés corrigés et de longs passages manuscrits de la main de Monsarrat contrecollés et amendés de la main de Samat. Le sixième cahier présente de nombreux passages rédigés et un épilogue. Il semble que le projet n’ait pas été mené à son terme. En 1939, Jean Monsarrat a fait paraître de son côté un livre intitulé Pilotes de records, Plon, consacré à des pilotes contemporains reconnus. On joint une correspondance 12 lettres et cartes adressées à Jean Monsarrat entre 1931 et 1939. L’ensemble, témoignant de la place de l’auteur dans le petit milieu de l’aviation, renferme notamment une lettre du général Madelin à Monsarrat (7 sept. 1936) le sollicitant pour un numéro spécial d’une revue spécialisée à destination du prochain salon d’aviation ; une lettre de l’aviateur André Japy ; une lettre de Felix Amiot, directeur des Avions Amiot (12 juillet 1939), le remerciant pour l’aide apportée au commandant Rossi pour préparer ses raids. Figure aussi un carton de remerciement des parents de la défunte pilote Hélène Boucher suite à l’envoi d’un télégramme par Monsarrat.Bel ensemble sur le monde de l’aviation dans les années 1930. Intéressant roman mélant aventures policières et aériennes.Chemise frottée avec petits manques au premier plat. 163 [Attributes: Soft Cover]
