        FOUR POEMS BY JOHN MILTON: L'ALLEGRO, IL PENSEROSO, ARCADES, LYCIDAS

      Newtown, Wales: The Gregynog Press, 1933. No. 172 OF 235 COPIES (of a total of 250, including 15 bound in morocco). Hardcover. 264 x 171 mm (10 3/8 x 6 3/4"). 33 pp., [1] leaf (colophon). No. 172 OF 235 COPIES (of a total of 250, including 15 bound in morocco). Publisher's reddish-brown Hermitage calf, upper cover blocked in blind with titling, press device, and the figure of Euphrosyne, one of the Three Graces, designed by Blair Hughes-Stanton. WITH 11 WOOD ENGRAVINGS BY BLAIR HUGHES-STANTON, four of these full-page. Printed on Japanese vellum. Harrop 26. A hint of rubbing to leather, one tiny spot on spine, otherwise A VERY FINE COPY, immaculate internally. 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's view, "merely a vehicle for displaying the illustrations," which feature figures from classical mythology depicted in the artist'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'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.

        Vintage Snapshot Photograph of the Babe and the Duke on Waikiki Beach

      Small vintage snapshot photograph of Babe Ruth and Duke Kahanamoku on Waikiki Beach. 4.5" x 2.75". Mounted on a black album page and presumably removed from an album. Near fine. The photo depicts both sports legends in bathing suits, standing with paddles in front of an outrigger canoe. In the background, another Hawaiian man brandishes a paddle (left-handed, as the Babe would do) and appears to be about to swat both of the legends in the back of the head. The two met in 1933 or 1934 when Ruth accompanied a barnstorming team that included Lou Gehrig, Jimmie Foxx, and Lefty Gomez. We have seen other copies of this photograph, so assume that it achieved some modest distribution in Hawaii. .

        Marlborough: His Life and Times, full set of six U.S. first edition, first printings in the rare first state dust jackets and slipcases

      Here is a full set of six U.S. first edition, first printings in the rare first state dust jackets and slipcases. Winston Churchill's monumental biography of his great ancestor, John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough took 10 years of research and writing and is the most substantial published work of Churchill's "wilderness years" in the 1930s. The first volume was published in 1933, with the final volume published in 1938 on the eve of the Second World War. Richard Langworth says "To understand the Churchill of the Second World War, the majestic blending of his commanding English with historical precedent, one has to read Marlborough." The British first edition was issued in four volumes. The U.S. publisher chose to split the first two volumes into two books each, resulting in a six volume set that is otherwise identical in content to the British. The first four U.S. volumes were originally issued in two-volume sets, with cream-colored dust jackets featuring green print. The fifth volume was originally issued in a white dust jacket with a red-printed design matching that of the two slipcases for volumes I & II and volumes III & IV. Only in 1938, when the sixth and final U.S. volume was published, were the more commonly seen blue and gold dust jackets issued. Today the first state dust jackets are quite scarce, and the fragile original slipcases doubly so. This is a full, first state set comprising truly fine first printing volumes in very good or better dust jackets with the two publisher's slipcases. All six volumes feature immaculate green cloth bindings and bright contents with absolutely no spotting and no inscriptions. The first four volumes are virtually as-new with especially bright page edges, having been protected by both their original dust jackets and the slipcases. All six dust jackets are unclipped. The cream-colored dust jackets of the first four volumes all show uniform toning to the spines and some modest chipping, mostly at the spine ends. The Volume V dust jacket is highly complete with fractional chipping at the spine ends and some toning of the spine. The Volume VI dust jacket remains bright and highly complete with some wrinkling at the spine ends, a small chip to the upper front corner, and some vertical creasing to the front face. All six dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers. The Volumes I & II slipcase is bright and complete, but separating at the upper right, right rear, and lower right seams. There is a small, faint pencil notation on the slipcase spine that may be previous bookseller pricing. The volume III & IV slipcase is complete with some soiling to the top edge, wear at the opening edges, and separation at the upper right, right rear, and lower right seams. Please anticipate the possibility of additional postage costs for this large, heavy, set, which we will pack with care. Bibliographic reference: A97.4(I-VI).a, Woods/ICS A49(ba), Langworth p.169.

        Bulletin hebdomadaire de Police Criminelle [Reliure des n° 1340 à 1365, juillet à décembre 1933]

      Police Criminelle 1933 Fort volume en reliure toilée réunissant les n° 1340 (3 juillet 1933) à 1365 (25 décembre 1933) du Bulletin hebdomadaire de Police Criminelle. Ensemble d'environ 800pp. [les bulletins font de 23 à 45pp. chacun]. Une étiquette imprimée avec les références collée au dos. La reliure est très usagée, les bulletins en bon état. Nombreuses annotations. Rarissime documentation d'archives policières. Ces bulletins étaient évidemment à usage professionnel et interne. L'anthropométrie triomphait dans la lutte contre le crime. Toute une vision morale se révèle dans cette littérature administrative : « fréquente les milieux algériens », « délit de vagabondage ». Les signes particuliers sont l'objet de descriptions minutieuses : « poitrine développée, emploie de la poudre de riz couleur ocre » ; « porte généralement des culottes bouffantes et des leggins » ; « verrue à la joue droite, cicatrice de furoncle au poignet gauche » ; « tête très allongée » ; « accoutrement genre artiste lunette en écaille, couleur blonde ». Dans les demandes de recherches : une femme qui « se présente dans les établissements religieux, munie de recommandation provenant de la supérieure d'un couvent. Elle demande des renseignements, pour sa s?ur, dit-elle, qui veut être religieuse, puis se dit très contrariée, car venue dans la localité pour y faire des achats, elle a perdu la somme d'agent que sa mère lui avait remise pour payer les fournisseurs. Elle accepte l'offre d'argent qui peut lui être faite, promettant de rembourser quelques jours après, mais ne reparaît plus. » : une troupe de danseurs et danseuses ambulants connue sous le nom de « Lee-Thung Foo » Chaque n° comprend une table alphabétique des individus répertoriés ; de nombreuses pages d'individus recherchés, avec leur description anthropométrique et une ou deux photos, leur date et lieu de naissance, parfois le motif de la recherche, des renseignements pour identification ; des demandes de recherches ; des listes de bijoux et objets volés (parfois avec photos) ; des avis de cessations de recherches ; la table alphabétique des individus compris au B.P.C. Ce bulletin était adressé gratuitement à Messieurs les procureurs généraux, Procureurs de la République, Juges d'instruction, Commissaires de Police, Commandants de Brigades de gendarmerie, Directeurs de Maisons centrales, Surveillants-Chefs de Maison d'arrêt, en Elgérie et en Tunisie. Cette reliure a appartenu au Commissariat général de la ville d'Orléans, qui y apposa son tampon en première page de chaque bulletin. (sw) Satisfaisant couverture rigide Edition originale

        Marlborough, His Life and Times, full set of finely bound British first editions

      Churchill's monumental biography of his great ancestor, John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough took 10 years of research and writing and is the most substantial published work of Churchill's "wilderness years" in the 1930s.  The final volume was published on the eve of the Second World War.  "To understand the Churchill of the Second World War, the majestic blending of his commanding English with historical precedent, one has to read Marlborough."  (Richard Langworth, A Connoisseur's Guide to the Works of Sir Winston Churchill). The first edition of Marlborough was originally issued in four volumes between 1933 and 1938.  Here is an excellent full set of four first edition, first printings sumptuously bound by the renowned Bayntun-Riviere bindery of Bath, England.  The binding is half pebble-grain crimson morocco over red cloth boards.  Features include raised spine bands, ruled panels, decorated compartments, leather corners, gilt ruled transitions, gilt top edges, head and foot bands, and marbled endpapers.  Spine presentation is spectacular.  The binding is in excellent, nearly as-new condition, showing only a few tiny corner bumps and a tiny scratch or two on the leather.  The contents are worthy of the binding, being crisp, clean, bright and tight - and clearly never read.  All maps, plans, and illustrations are present and pristine.  There is no spotting whatsoever and no inscriptions or previous ownership markings of any kind.  The gilt top edges remain bright and the fore edges are unusually bright as well, with none of the usual toning.  The sole flaw detected is some minor staining on the fore edges of Volumes III and IV, which does not affect the text margins.  Please note that this large, heavy set may require additional shipping costs. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A97.1.a, Woods/ICS A40(aa), Langworth p.166.
