      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1934. First Edition. Hardcover. fine/near fine. 1st edition, his first novel. Fine in near fine dustjacket.

         18 Poems.

      London: The Sunday Referee and The Patron Bookshop, 1934 - Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. Housed in a black morocco backed folding case. Faint spotting to free endpapers. An excellent copy in the jacket with some light spotting, minor nicks at the ends of the toned spine panel, and marks to the lower panel. First edition, first impression, presentation copy of Thomas's first book, inscribed by the poet on the front free endpaper, "To Nora from Dylan, March 1938". The recipient was Nora Summers (1892–1948), an artist and the lover of Yvonne Macnamara, Thomas's mother-in-law. Nora had studied at the Bristol School of Art and then the Slade in London, and married fellow artist Gerald Summers in 1912. In 1914 she became close to the family of painter Augustus John, and through him Yvonne and the Macnamara children, with whom she and Gerald lived communally for a few years. Yvonne and Nora's relationship was intense, and Caitlin later remembered Nora as "the father figure of our girlhood and an evil one", but the two fiery women did see eye-to-eye about art, with Caitlin acting as a model for Nora's burgeoning photographic hobby. Nora also enjoyed entertaining the young artistic friends of the Macnamaras, including Dylan Thomas, and she took a number of now-iconic photographs of the poet, including the image of Thomas smoking, and the photograph of the poet and his wife at Brown's Hotel in 1938. 18 poems was Thomas's first book, published in an edition of only 500 copies shortly after his 20th birthday, with 250 sets of sheets bound and sold a year after the first issue. This is one of the second issue copies with the Parton Press advertisement tipped-in between the half-title and title. Both issues are rare today, particularly so in the dust jacket and with presentation inscription. Hayward 343. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

         Living My Life [One-Volume Edition] - Inscribed

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1934. First Edition Thus. Hardcover. First one-volume edition of Goldman's monumental autobiography, an undisputed high-spot of women's writing and one of a few truly important 20th-century radical memoirs. Goldman was furious with Knopf for issuing the book in two volumes at the height of an economic depression, and considered the publication price of $7.50 to be exhorbitant. The book indeed sold poorly, despite strong reviews, and it has never been common. Knopf issued the one-volume edition in 1934. On February 1 the same year, after 15 years in exile, Goldman was re-admitted to the United States for a brief 90 day period, during which she lectured extensively. A significant copy, warmly inscribed on May Day, 1934, on the eve of her deportation from the U.S. to Stella Estall of Montreal, who organized and prepared a farewell dinner for Goldman and friends. "For Emma Goldman, deportation and exile were harsh punishments. Friends reported that just before and immediately after her tour, Goldman often sat at the Canadian border, looking longingly across to the United States, tears streaming down her face" (http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/goldman/MeetEmmaGoldman/emmagoldmaninexile.html). Octavo (22.5cm); black cloth, with titles stamped in red on spine and front panel; red topstain; x, 994, xxiiipp, followed by 7 leaves of half-tone plates. Signed by Goldman on the front endpaper, and lengthily inscribed by her on the second blank: "To Stella Estall / With deepest appreciation for your interest and your splendid efforts in behalf of the farewell dinner. / Cordially, Emma Goldman / Montreal. May First 1934." Forward lean, covers heavily rubbed, with occasional exposure to corners and lower board edges; both hinges cracked, though still holding; front endpaper heavily dust-soiled, with small chip to upper right corner of same; rear cover damp-stained, affecting rear endpaper and several terminal leaves; no better than Fair, but a nice association copy.

         TENDER IS THE NIGHT. A ROMANCE

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1934. Advance | Review Copy. Very Good binding. Quite rare, advance or review copy of the First Edition. Brucolli A14,I.a and Supplement (1980) only a handful of copies: "One copy bound in wrappers made from the dust jacket has been located at ViU ... It may have been used as an advance or review copy. [The Supplement notes a couple of additional copies]. The Scribners records indicate that 500 copies in wrappers were ordered; but since only one [three?] copy has been located, it seems doubtful that these copies were actually prepared." [Bruccoli, A,14.1.a] With corner loss to the top of the front panel affecting the "LD" in Fitzgerald, and the "S" in "is". With some "bleed" the verso of the front panel; and a bit of wrinkling and a light crease to the first blank leaf. There is a small stain to the leading edge of the textblock. Minor sunning to the spine. To call this uncommon would be an understatement. Very Good binding.

Front free endpaper clipped. An excellent copy in the glassine dust jacket, slightly chipped, spine panel faded, front flap creased. Slipcase slightly worn and faded around edges, slightly split at head. Illustrated throughout with wood engravings by Lynd Ward. First Lynd Ward illustrated edition, first printing. The American artist Lynd Kendall Ward (1905–1985) is best known for his series of wordless novels, a precursor to the modern graphic novel. His bold and idiosyncratic illustrations to Frankenstein aptly complement the book's daring and visionary themes. Very scarce in the original glassine dust jacket.

      Paris: The Obelisk Press, 1934. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Signed. First edition, first printing of the author's first published book. An association copy, signed by Henry Miller one month after publication, inscribed "To Norman Douglas from a faithful admirer of his works / Henry V. Miller 10/3/34 / 18 Villa Seurat (XIV) Paris."
