        1829 ????. [Journey to Arzrum during the campaign of 1829].

      Lifar Paris 1934 - Quarto (27 x 21 cm). 78 incl. first blank, half-title, frontispiece and title, [2] pp., including facsimile letters in Russian and French, head- and tailpieces, loose ad leaf inserted; discrete stamp 'Printed in France' on title. Publisher's printed wrappers by Dobuzhinskiy; a bit soiled, fore-edge of upper cover slightly creased. Fine copy of this private production, from the very rare edition of 50 copies only, each one bearing the printed name of the recipient. Another issue, without names, was limited to 200 copies. This copy was made for Valerian Svetlov, actually V. Ivchenko, an active supporter of Diaghilev and the Ballets Russes, involved in the organisation of the first season in 1909. After having published some of the best works on Russian ballet, he died in January 1934 - that is ten months before the printing of the present work: a rare example of posthumous dedication! With an introduction by Lifar and with a facsimile of Pushkin's notebook that Lifar acquired from a dealer in Paris. The notebook contains a handwritten introduction to "Travel to Arzrum" with the first two pages crossed out and not subsequently included in Pushkin's publication of the novel in Sovremennik in 1836. The wrappers were designed by R. M. Dobuzhinskiy, son of Mstislav. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        [Two Original Autograph Letters, Signed, to Harold J. Massingham]

      Crux Easton, Near Newbury, Berkshire. 29 December [ny] & [nd, but no later than 1934].. Four pages, very closely written in ink, on three octavo sheets of letterhead. Ca. 400 words. A few small brown spots, otherwise very good. Collier writes to "Dear Massingham" about his contribution of an essay to a collection he is editing, most certainly ENGLISH COUNTRY: FIFTEEN ESSAYS BY VARIOUS AUTHORS (Wishart, 1934). He apologizes for his late response due to illness, but agrees: "Of course I should like to do the essay, for country matters are the only things I care about. And I think it very sporting of you to ask me, considering what a torrent of abuse my unfortunate Tennyson essay provoked ... But I don't live in Berkshire and never have, except for a few months last year while they pretended to repair this house. This is north Hampshire; Berks and Wilts are both five or six miles away, though country characteristic of each comes up to within a mile or two of these woody, clay-topped hills ... I should like to keep within very close range of this house, for I scarcely ever go beyond the boundaries of the little manor on which it stands ...There is plenty in this place to make a book of. Cobbett talks a lot about it, Pope used to come here, the Romans had a road house where half the cottages now stand ... What I think I shall make most of, is that this is a very highly preserved game country (no hunting even) ... Then that would lead me into a description of the art and joy of shooting, and an attack on the damned dull fools who make a dreary slaughter of it, and its good & bad effects on wild life and wild flowers and so on. Then there's farming and gardening ...." He suggests other topics, and makes further comments, and in the second letter gives an update on progress, noting the resolution of an issue about the future rights to the essay, now resolved by his agent with Wishart. Each letter is signed in full.

        Everest 1933

      London: Hodder & Stoughton, Limited,, 1934. Notes and Thoughts, Practical and Critical, of a Working Amateur. Crown octavo. Original dark blue cloth, titles gilt to spine. With the striking pictorial dust jacket. 50 photographic illustrations, 3 diagrams in the text, and 4 maps, 3 of which are folding. Minor wear to spine ends and board edges, mild spotting to edges, light foxing to prelims, endmatter, and occasionally to margins of text block, two folding maps loosely inserted. A very good copy in a price-clipped jacket with somewhat darkened spine panel, slightly scuffed rear panel, and a few small nicks and chips to extremities. 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.

        Appointment in Samarra [In the Scarce Dust Jacket]

      New York: Harcourt Brace and Company, 1934. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good/very good. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, complete with the inserted quote-identification slip which some identify as an errata slip (slightly askew, spine ends modestly pushed, tiny tear at spine head --- otherwise Very Good + with a small white spot to the closed page block's upper edges reaching very slightly into the adjacent upper page margins having a tiny effect on only nine pages, small shelf rub to the closed page block bottom's leading edge, embossed 5-letter name to the title page's lower margin), in what for this title is a Very Good example of the dust jacket (the second-state, showing wear with some loss to the spine ends, panel edges, and flap folds, but notably a genuinly unsophisticated jacket without any of the often-seen tape repairs or restoration) -- the dust jacket for this title is notoriously fragile and usually either missing or found quite worn; John O'Hara's debut novel, the tale of an American elite's self-destruction, with the title having been taken from quote of Somerset Maugham's Play "Sheppey" (a retelling of an ancient tale) with the quote of Death being repeated on this book's title page and reading as follows: "There was a merchant in Bagdad who sent his servant to market to buy provisions and in a little while the servant came back, white and trembling, and said, Master, just now when I was in the marketplace I was jostled by a woman in the crowd and when I turned I saw it was Death that jostled me. She looked at me and made a threatening gesture, now, lend me your horse, and I will ride away from this city and avoid my fate. I will go to Samarra and there Death will not find me. The merchant lent him his horse, and the servant mounted it, and he dug his spurs in its flanks and as fast as the horse could gallop he went. Then the merchant went down to the marketplace and he saw me standing in the crowd and he came to me and said, Why did you make a threatening gesture to my servant when you saw him this morning? That was not a threatening gesture, I said, it was only a start of surprise. I was astonished to see him in Bagdad, for I had an appointment with him tonight in Samarra." A Very Good copy of this highly notable debut novel not commonly found either complete with the dust jacket or in better condition. UNCOMMON.

        Isaac Roosevelt (1726-1794) Soldier, Statesman, Citizen of New York: A short genealogical record of the Roosevelts from 1649 to 1934 and notes in reference to John Bailey sword maker to the Officers of the American Revolution

      New York: Privately Printed, 1934. Hardcover Hardcover. Near Fine. [3], 7, [7] pages on hand-made paper; 2 mounted photographs, the first of a painted portrait of Isaac Roosevelt and the second of the sword. Folio-sized, 10-1/4 by 14 inches. A rather odd book, presenting a survey of Franklin Roosevelt's male ancestors, with an emphasis on the Revolutionary War-era politician Isaac Roosevelt. The final page is devoted to John Bailey, who made a sword for Isaac. It appears that the House of Peters, at one time a fine clothier, had turned to selling artificts in the 1930s, issuing elaborate books to document collections they presumably had for sale. In this case, your humble cataloguer believes they had in their possession a sword once owned by Isaac Roosevelt, and seeing that his great-great grandson was in the White House, sought to capitalize on this fact. It is, in any case, an uncommon book, published in an edition of just 12 copies. Two copies located on OCLC, one at the American Antiquarian Society and the second at the Harry Ransom Center. Bound in yellow half morocco over blue cloth. Spine tanned, with a bit of spotting to the leather, else a near fine copy in a very good slipcase. Bookmark ribbon detached but laid in. Copy 3 of 12, numbered, signed Fred Peters and dated on a sheet of House of Peters letterhead, tipped to the first leaf.

        Tobacco Road Original Playbill for Opening Night at the Forrest Theatre [Signed by Erskine Caldwell, Jack Kirkland, Maude Odell, and Margaret Wycherly]

      New York: The New York Theatre Program Corporation, 1934. First edition. Staples Sheets. Very Good +. The Original Playbill for the Opening Night performance of Tobacco Road -- the Play -- at Broadway's Forrest Theatre in New York City, SIGNED BY ERSKINE CALDWELL, JACK KIRKLAND, MAUDE ODELL, and MARGARET WYCHERLY. Originally published in 1932, Erskine Caldwell's novel, "Tobacco Road", centers around the Lesters, a Georgia Sharecropping family living during the Great Depression, and illustrates the effect of deep poverty on their morals and on their behavior. Jack Kirkland adapted the Novel for the stage, but could not get anyone to produce it. Confident in the Play, Kirkland financed it himself, using his life savings of $6,000 to do so. His Play went on to become, at its time, the longest running Broadway Play in history, running for 3,182 performances. (As of July 20, 2014, the Play remained the eighteenth longest-running Play in Broadway History.) The Play starred Maude Odell, one of the 20th Century's best-known actresses, as Sister Bessie Rice, Margaret Wycherly as Ada Lester, and Henry Hull as Jeeter Lester. Of the Play, New York Times theatre critic Brooks Atkinson wrote: "The theatre has never sheltered a fouler or more degenerate parcel of folks than the hardscrabble family of Lester...It is the blunt truth of the characters he is describing, and it leaves a malevolent glow of poetry... As Jeeter Lester, Henry Hull gives the performance of his career. Plays as clumsy and rudderless as 'Tobacco Road' seldom include so many scattered items that leave such a vivid impression." The Play debuted on December 4, 1933 at The Masque Theatre (now called the John Gold Theatre). Although panned by the critics and a commercial failure, Kirkland remained convinced that the Play had a vital dramatic message and refused to give up. When the Play was told to leave the Masque, Kirkland relocated it to the 48th Street Theatre, where, using his now meager funds, he nursed it along for approximately ten weeks. Suddenly, a positive newspaper editorial appeared and magazine writers began to battle the critics over the Play's merits. The Play gained momentum and relocated to the more prestigious Forrest Theatre on 49th Street (now the Eugene O'Neill Theatre) with James Bell, the well-regarded stage actor, replacing Henry Hull who had given the Play up and departed for Hollywood. Performances then ran for nearly seven years, ending on May 31, 1941, both making it the Forrest Theatre's earliest notable production and making Jack Kirkland a rich man. Without the Play and Kirkland's perseverance, "Tobacco Road", the novel, likely would not have gained the fame that it did. It was Kirkland's Play that spawned the novel's success, and it was as a result of the Play that Caldwell's work gained instant fame and sold millions of copies, making it his first financial success and laying the foundation for his reputation as a great Southern writer. (In his Autobiography, Caldwell noted that, at one point during the Play's run at the Forrest Theatre, he was earning approximately $2,000 a week in royalties from the Play and $1,000 a month in royalties from the book. In 1982, Caldwell stated that, to the best of his knowledge, there had not been a week in the then-preceeding 49 years that the Play had not been performed somewhere in the world.) It is all of this which makes the Forrest Playbill an important part of literary history. In Very Good + condition, the Playbill's third page, which serves as the title page for the Play, has been SIGNED BY ERSKINE CALDWELL, JACK KIRKLAND, MAUDE ODELL, and MARGARET WYCHERLY. A SCARCE TO RARE ITEM AND THE FOUNDATION FOR BOTH CALDWELL'S AND HIS NOVEL'S SUCCESS.
