        Stable Money: A History of the Movement

      New York: Adelphi Company 1934, 1st Edition. () xxiii, 442pp. Very good in very good dust jacket. Octavo. Original dark blue cloth boards. Oxidized gilt title on spine. Textblock is clean and tight. Dustjacket has had some minor professional restoration. This book was the fourth last written by Fisher. He dedicated the book to President Roosevelt, which is often misconstrued to mean that he was a supporter of the New Deal. Actually, Fisher was against the New Deal, and meant the dedication as acknowledgement of Roosevelt's contribution to the concept of a stable dollar. He hoped that Roosevelt would pay more attention to the monetary system. Fisher founded the Stable Money League, later known as the Stable Money Association, in May of 1921 with the aim to make promotional information in favor of a compensated dollar. A fantastic copy in a rare dustjacket, of what some consider Fisher's most important work..

Endsheets and fore-edges somewhat foxed, else a nice copy (with spine gilding still bright), in similarly foxed printed dust jacket with two tiny chips and tears at the spine ends and one chip at the lower edge of the rear panel. Half morocco slipcase and chemise First edition, first state of the binding, of the author's first book. A total of 500 sets of sheets were printed, of which 250 sets were bound up in December of 1934 in this fashion, and the remaining 250 sets of sheets in February, 1936. This copy is signed by Thomas in the upper quadrant of the free endsheet, and has a gift inscription incorporating that signature: "To Ethel from Bert, and Dylan Thomas ... Xmas 1934." "Bert" was Albert Lancaster Lloyd (1908-1982), the prominent British folklorist, singer and Communist activist who, in the late 1930s, was commissioned by the BBC to undertake documentaries on sea-faring life and the rise of Nazism in Germany. He co-edited THE PENGUIN BOOK OF ENGLISH FOLK SONGS (1959) and was a key figure in the folksong revival of the 1950s and 1960s. Laid in is a brief note of presentation, signed "Bert," noting that "Dylan's stuff ... [is] the best young poetry there is; better even than George's [Barker?] or David Gascoyne's. He signed [the book] specially for you." "These first poems (very uneven) shattered for those who discovered them the whole revolutionary optimism of the 'thirties" - Connolly. ROLPH B1a.

        Tobacco, Pipes and Smoking Customs of the American Indians

      Milwaukee: Public Museum of the City of Milwaukee, 1934 2 volumes: 477 pages with one plate, maps, figures and index; 257 plages including maps. Quarto (10 3/4" x 7") issued in wrappers. Bulletin of the Public Museum of the City of Milwaukee, Volume XVII. 1st edition. Tobacco was smoked in the Americas long before its organized cultivation began somewhere around 5000 to 3000 BC. Tobacco use was ceremonial and ritualistic for the natives with the leaf not only being smoked, but also chewed, drunk, taken as snuff and even given as enema. Tobacco was considered as a means of communicating with the supernatural world and was also believed to have medicinal properties. Mayans considered it a divine plant and many Mayan gods are depicted smoking. The name tobacco came from a misunderstanding of the Spaniards who thought the dried leaves were called tobacco when the indigenous name tabaco actually meant the tube or pipe in which the natives smoked the leaves. Tobacco was introduced in the court of Catherine de Medici in 1560 by Jean Nicot. The word nicotine was coined. Condition: Edge wear with some closed tears and chips, spines sunned, some light foxing, corners bumped else a very good copy. . First Edition. Original Wrappers. Very Good. Quarto.

England in the 1930s, lacking the pulp magazines of America, tended to publish its popular fiction in book form, in the big anthologies given away as subscription premiums by London newspapers, and, most importantly for weird fiction enthusiasts, in the well-received "Not At Night" series edited by C. C. Thompson and the "Creeps" series edited (anonymously) by Charles Birkin. Philip Allan's thirteen "Creeps" anthologies were augmented by about ten single-author collections, of which this is the crown jewel, collecting ten notably weird and imaginative tales. "... an exceptionally fine collection of horror stories." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 264. Regrettably, this was the author's only book.

This work is not "signed" in any manner by Connett or the Derrydale Press; furthermore it was not listed in any Derrydale catalogue or in A Decade. In the Connett Collection at Princeton University, there are two copies (one of each binding style [one also being red leather with gilt medallion on front cover], one of which is signed in pen in the same manner that Connett signed all his works that he gave to Princeton.We understand from a reliable source that upon housecleaning after Mr. Reynal's death, a large carton of Thoughts upon Hunting Kit was taken to the local dump, which may account for the scarcity of this work. How many copies were disposed of in this manner is unknown. The highest numbered copy we have examined is 165. - Siegel. [Siegel #83]. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
