        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. .

        The Man With Two Left Feet

      New York and Chicago: A. L. Burt Company Publishers, by arrangement with Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc.,, 1933. And Other Stories. Octavo. Original orange cloth, titles and design to spine and front board in black, orange topstain. With the dust jacket illustrated by Harry Beckhoff. Corners nicked, faint mark to front board; an excellent copy in the rubbed and spine-tanned with splits at the fore-edge. First American edition, first printing (originally published in book form by Methuen in 1917), of the short story collection that includes (in "Extricating Young Gussie") the first appearance of Jeeves, Bertie Wooster and Aunt Agatha, and their first introduction the US. Bibliographically, this is an unusual example of the publishing house A.L. Burt (normally associated with popular reprints) printing a first edition; Doubleday, Doran & Co. purchased the American rights to the book, but sold them to Burt without publishing the book themselves, hence the "by arrangement of" notice in the imprint. Scarce.

        Roll, Jordan, Roll

      New York: Robert O. Ballou. [1933]. First Edition. 8vo; 251pp, with 75 photographs on double-sided plates, including frontispiece; original blue cloth, gilt spine, edges faded about 1/8 in, endpapers a bit aged toned, jacket chipped along all edges rubbed ("E" in Peterkin missing on spine) with creases on both front panel, very good in used jacket.& Julia Mood Peterkin (1880-1961), South Carolina native, lived on her husband&#39;s two-thousand acre plantation and also had a summer home at Murrell&#39;s Inlet, a coastal village. 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. ROLL, JORDAN ROLL is a non-fiction work which portrays the Gullah in a perfect artistic blend of text and picture. American Woman Writers III, pp. 373-374.

        FOUR POEMS BY JOHN MILTON: L&#39;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&#39;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&#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.".

        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.
