        The English Flower Garden and Home Grounds of Hardy Trees and Flowers

      London - John Murray, 1934. London - John Murray, 1934 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A fascinating and hugely influential Victorian gardening work. FifteenthEdition. Witha colour frontispiece and seventeen further plates, as well as numerousillustrations in the text throughout, many full page. William Robinson (5 July 1838 17 May 1935) was an Irish practical gardener and journalist whose ideas about wild gardening spurred the movement that evolved into the English cottage garden, a parallel to the search for honest simplicity and vernacular style of the British Arts and Crafts movement. Robinson is credited as an early practitioner of the mixed herbaceous border of hardy perennial plants, a champion too of the wild garden, who vanquished the high Victorian pattern garden of planted-out bedding schemes. Robinson's new approach to gardening gained popularity through his magazines and several booksparticularly The Wild Garden and The English Flower Garden. In The English Flower Garden, Robinson laid down the principles that revolutionised the art of gardening. Robinson's source of inspiration was the simple cottage garden, long neglected by the fashionable landscapists. In The English Flower Garden he rejected the artificial and the formal, specifically statuary, topiary, carpet bedding, and waterworkscomparing the modern garden to the lifeless formality of wall-paper or carpet. The straight lines and form in many gardens were seen by Robinson to carry the dead lines of the builder into the garden. He admired nature's diversity, and promoted creepers and ramblers, smaller plantings of roses, herbaceous plants and bulbs, woodland plants, and winter flowers. Condition: Elegantly rebound in half morocco. Externally excellent with very little shelfwear. The hinges have been reinforced. Internally, firmly bound, beautifully bright and clean, aside from a few spots to the title and the odd spot within. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..

        Playing the Like.

      Chapman and Hall, Ltd., London 1934 - First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by the author on the front free endpaper, "Bernard Darwin Jan 1935." An excellent copy with some information regarding the book pasted to the inside gutter in the very rare dust jacket with a few closed tears. Rare in the original dust jacket and signed. It is said Bernard Darwin invented golf writing as we know it today. He was the first golf writer to transcribe facts and figures into a branch of literary journalism and he did so with style, wit and an ability to turn a phrase. Born September 7, 1876 in Downe, Kent, Darwin's grandfather was Charles Darwin, the great naturalist, who proposed the theory of evolution. Bernard never trained as a journalist. After graduating from Cambridge with a law degree, he became a barrister in London for a few years. But Darwin was unhappy in his work and in 1908, he gave up his career in law. "Once Darwin dipped his toe into golf writing, the reports he produced regularly for The Times of London over a forty-five year period and his ruminative essays for the weekly Country Life possessed a quality that no one else has ever approached," Herbert Warren Wind wrote, "We are simply very lucky that a man of his high talent was so smitten by golf that he wrote endlessly about it."

His first novel, A River Goes with Heaven, was published in 1930. He published another novel, This Green Thicket World, in 1934 and two short stories in 1935 and 1936.

        Lawrence And The Arabs

      Jonathan Cape 1934 - Two clean and tight VG copies of the 1934 re-issue of this publisher's 1927 first edition in an abridged form in the cheap Florin Books series. One copy is a first edition. The other copy is a bound proof with publisher's marks in pencil showing: the map of Arabia in the wrong place; two half title pages; no title page; and no author's note from Graves. As far as the literary contents are concerned, Falls writes: 'Mr Graves's book is intended to appeal to a more popular audience than Lawrence's own 'Revolt In The Desert'. He begins by giving us a short account of Lawrence's youth and of his introduction to Syria and Palestine. When he arrives at the outbreak of the Arab revolt against the Turks he follows Lawrence's own narrative closely, but gives some useful explanations of obscure points.' Both the bound proof and the published book are in VG condition in Cape's original wheat cloth bindings. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        TWO TRAMPS IN MUD-TIME

      New York: Spiral Press, 1934. New York: Spiral Press, 1934. 1st edition, original hand-tied paperwraps, with original mailing envelope (as issued). Published as a Holiday Greeting with the Elinor & Robert Frost imprint (1/200) using Frost&#39;s poem and decorated with a border of stars on the title page. The present copy is specially inscribed (but not signed) by Frost. The inscription reads: "To the Weygandts" in Frost&#39;s genuine hand using blue fountain pen ink. Also included is the original mailing envelope, addressed in Frost&#39;s hand: "Professor Cornelius Weygandt / University of Pennsylvania / Philadelphia / Pa" in blue fountain pen ink. The 3 cent stamp is postmarked Key West Fla Dec 24, 1934. Professor Weygandt influenced Frost&#39;s poem "New Hampshire" (see Weygandt&#39;s book THE WHITE HILLS, pp. 231-254). This is the second in what resulted in a long series of publications begun by Joseph Blumenthal at his Spiral Press, and commonly referred to as the Frost Christmas cards. The entire press run was 775 copies with six varying names imprinted on the title page. (Crane B2.) Potentially fragile in nature, very few of these earlier titles have survived. The present copy shows only minimal wear, it is otherwise delightfully bright and fine. Uncommon as an association copy.

Labels permanently mounted to acetate protected boards. The Golden Age of Travel occurred between 1890 and the outbreak of World War II. During this time elegant hotels abounded and the various modes of transport reached their glorious apogee. The labels, which were placed on luggage by railroads, steamships or hotels beautifully captured the spirit of the era. In this Golden Age, Luggage became a history of travels, their accumulation documenting a traveller's taste as well as the places seen, the transportation used and the hotels visited. The battered, overlaid and randomly applied labels achieved a cumulative personality. Luggage became the owner's extended travel history, evoking afternoons in London, frosty nights in the Alps, or a tour of the glamorous French Riviera. What began as simple informative pieces of paper attached to baggage to inform handlers of a destination or other instructions, soon evolved into superb works advertising art. These elegant labels which adorned the portmanteaus of the well traveled are time capsules unearthed , each evoking a distant noir place and chromioum time. A superb and most desireable collection. Several plates present diagonal offset from previous mounting. They do not distract in any significant way from the crisp, bright and striking original condition of this gathering.

        Memorial mass meeting 6 pm Sunday [July 8, 1934], 765 Howard St. In memory of workers killed on the Waterfront Thursday last defending workers rights against the brutal fascist methods of the police. Especially in memory of G3orge [sic] Coundourakis member of the Cooks and Waiters Union Local #44 A.F.L. also a member of the Communist Party

      Communist Party, Down Town Section, [1934]. [San Francisco]: Communist Party, Down Town Section, [1934]. Leaflet printed on one side, 5.25x8.25 inches, mimeographed, two horizontal fold creases), paper beginning to brown, good condition. This leaflet, issued in white hot anger - with typos - was issued to mobilize the mass funeral march after the Bloody Thursday July 5 shooting of two men active in the historic San Francisco waterfront strike of 1934. It was produced sometime between Thursday, July 5 (Bloody Thursday), when CP and Cooks and Waiters Union Local 44 member George Coundeourakis [Nick Bordois] and longshore union member Howard Sperry were gunned down by police at Mission and Spear streets and Sunday, July 8, 1934, when the two lay in state at the Longshore Hall near the shooting site. The flyer calls for a mass meeting followed by a "mass funeral march" on Monday, July 9, beginning at the Longshore Hall. These murders and following funeral procession initiated the San Francisco General Strike.
