        This Must Be The Place: Memoirs of Montparnasse

      London:: Herbert Joseph,, 1934. . A Very Good tight copy with discreet owner name to flyleaf in a Very Good plus scarce dust jacket missing chips from head & heel of spine and wear to top edge of rear panel. This is one of the more important first person memoirs of the expatriate years in Paris in the 1920s. Jimmy Charters served as barman at several Parisian establishments including the Dingo, the Falstaff, the Trois et As and the Jockey. Charters did not compose the memoir himself, but instead dictated impressions of and stories about his various clients to a stenographer hired by his collaborator Morrill Cody, an American journalist (and later cultural liaison) who also participated in Left Bank expatriate circles. According to Cody, Charters undertook the memoir at the urging of American artist Hilaire Hiler, who served as Charters' initial ghost writer before he (Hiler) persuaded Cody to take over. The resultant text first appeared as "This Must Be the Place; Memoirs of Montparnasse by Jimmy the Barman (James Charters) ; edited by Morrill Cody ; with an introduction by Ernest Hemingway ; illustrated by Ivan Opffer and Hilaire Hiler," published in England by Herbert Joseph Ltd. in 1934. Hemingway looked over an early and rough version of the text with Cody and Charters at Shakespeare and Company while on his way from Key West to Africa in November 1933. Hemingway then mailed his introduction from Nairobi, Kenya in January 1934..

Inscription on verso of front free endpaper, signed by the author. Covers are soiled with wear to extremities (1/8 inch cloth loss to head and tail of spine, split to head and tail of spine and a couple of inches of lower edges of covers), bumped corners. Foxing to endpapers and scattered foxing to some pages, text block starting to split at a couple of spots. Still overall good condition. Ellen Catleen, wife of the Dutch ambassador to China in the 1930s, introduces 1930s Peking through the imagined characters of Mr Wu, the small stout Chinese gentleman, and Mr. Pim, the lanky European visitor, humorously portrayed by illustrator Freidrich Schiff. The many photographs "taken by the Rolleiflex camera" depict all aspects of the Chinese capital and its inhabitants. There is an inscription signed by the author Ellen Catleen "In Hamburg 1923, Who would have thought that this book would be given to my dear friends Hemelsdorff (?) in Shanghai, so that they have something to occasionally remember." This is a scarce book that evocatively captures the cosmopolitan China of the inter-war era. .

        Tender is the Night. A Romance

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons,, 1934. Decorations by Edward Shenton. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. Housed in a dark blue quarter morocco solander box. Illustrations in the text by Edward Shenton. Extremities very faintly rubbed. An exceptionally bright copy in a slightly rubbed jacket with a few short closed tears and light chipping to tips of spine panel and flap folds; box with bibliographical inscription to inside cover and slight rubbing to corners. Excellent. First edition, first printing, in the first issue dust jacket with the T. S. Eliot review to the front flap. Tender is the Night was Fitzgerald's fourth novel coming some nine years after the publishing triumph that was The Great Gatsby. Fitzgerald set out to write an important and in many ways revolutionary work of fiction. Structurally complex, topically dangerous and personally challenging, the struggle of its inception was matched perhaps only by the scale of critical disdain. Fitzgerald was so distressed by the antagonism from most quarters that he agreed to allow later editions to be published with the narrative rearranged chronologically. Only years after his death was the text restored and the true brilliance of this work recognized.

With the striking pictorial dust jacket. 59 plates 50 photographic illustrations, 3 diagrams in the text, and 4 maps, 3 of which are folding. Spine ends a touch bumped, slight spotting to edges, light foxing to prelims, endmatter, and occasionally to margins of text block, short closed tears to folding map stubs. An excellent copy in a gently rubbed and nicked jacket with a split to front panel repaired with tape to verso. First edition of Ruttledge's account of the British 1933 attempt to climb Mount Everest, which he led. Nine years had passed since the last expedition, on which Mallory and Irvine had disappeared. Ruttledge put together a highly talented group, but the attempt to establish Camp V on a rare fair day (20 May) was a crucial failure. In the ensuing acrimony two vital days were lost and the expedition missed its chance of improving significantly on the height gained by the expedition of 1924. Ruttledge was to make a second attempt in 1936, which was better-spirited but defeated by an exceptionally early monsoon.

        An atlas of infant behavior

      New Haven: Yale, 1934. Gesell, Arnold (1880-1961) et al. An atlas of infant behavior: A systematic delineation of the forms and early growth of human behavior patterns. 2 vols. (Vol. I: Normative series; Vol. II: Naturalistic series). 523; 525-921pp. Halftone text illustrations. New Haven: Yale University Press, 1934. 300 x 281 mm. Original loose leaves in cloth pressure bindings, gilt-lettered front covers and spines, a little worn at spines and edges. Light toning, a few edges a little frayed, but very good.First Edition. Gesell, who originated the Child Study Center at Yale University, is considered the founder of child development in the United States. The Gesell Institute of Human Development in New Haven is named for him. Gesell is best known for his groundbreaking studies of normal child development: beginning in the 1920s, he used advanced cinematic and photographic techniques, including one-way mirrors, to record developmental milestones from infancy to adolescence. His most famous work is the Atlas of Infant Behavior, which contains 3200 photographs documenting the human infant's "visible manifestations of his maturing patterns of action and reaction. . . . Through systematic, pictorial charting, we trust that this Atlas will reveal the patterned organization of the moments and of the developmental sequences of infant behavior" (p. 11).

        The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze

      Random House, New York 1934 - The first American edition, published by Random House in 1934. This is a review copy with review slip tipped in. The slip is particularly informative, indicating that Saroyan is the first of the 'new' authors to be published by Random House, and that the first printing - soon to be followed by a second - is limited to 2,000 copies. This copy is signed by William Saroyan. A near fine copy of the book with a touch of glue-browning to the gutters in a very good dust jacket with some chipping to the tips and spinal extremities. The chip to the top of the spine is roughly the size of a fingernail, and extends for about two inches unto the back panel at a depth of one quarter of an inch. The spine of the dust jacket has darkened a bit. A very attractive copy of a book which has become quite uncommon signed - or as a review copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
