About Fine (spine ends bumped, top edge slightly dust soiled); about Fine jacket (spine panel lightly toned). A scarce survival. Blixen's first book, published first in the United States under the pseudonym Isak Dinesen. These intricate and imaginative tales, all set in the nineteenth century, won wide acclaim in America and soon appeared in this edition in Britain and then in Denmark (as Syv fantastiske fortællinger). "Since her pseudonym was quickly penetrated, she published under her own name in every country, except the United States, where 'Isak Dinesen' swiftly became a valuable brand. Among the main stylistic influences on Blixen's tales can be counted the English gothic novel, German Romanticism, Boccacio's Decameron, and The Arabian Nights. When asked why she set her tales over a hundred years in the past, Blixen responded that the past could be more easily recompounded in her imagination, and she would not be forced to resort to realism.

        Fuji-Yama and other Poems. Transcribed from the Chinese and Japanese Originals.

      London: The Eastern Press, Ltd., [1934] - Duodecimo. Original green cloth, gilt titles to spine and front, top edge gilt. Spine tanned, chip from the cloth at head, some other light wear and mottling to the cloth, internally sound and clean, a good copy. First and only edition, presentation copy from the author to H. G. Wells, inscribed on the half-title, "To H. G. Wells, In friendship and admiration, Gonnoské Komai." The author was a Japanese poet living in London between the wars, who also published Dream from China and Japan (1918) and Fuji from Hampstead Heath (1925). This book is one of several from the library of H. G. Wells that were sent to his illegitimate daughter Anna-Jane Kennard (1909-2010), the product of his 1908-9 extramarital affair with feminist author Amber Reeves (1887-1981). Well's novel Ann Veronica (1909) is based on his affair with Reeves. Kennard did not know the true identity of her father throughout her childhood and adolescence, but eventually they met. On 6 March 1931 Wells wrote to his daughter: "My dear, I think that you and I have to come to perfectly frank dealings with each other: let us clear up the situation. For 19 years I have been doing my best to ignore your existence because of various humiliating and baffling things that occurred when you were born. Now I have met you, I love you very much." Later, during the Second World War, as a fitting gesture recognising their connection, Wells sent to his daughter, then living in her mother's native New Zealand, several boxes of books from his library. This copy has her pencil ownership inscription "A. Kennard" to the front free endpaper. The book is quite scarce, with only three copies listed in British institutions, and none in the British Library. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        [FROM AVANT-GARDE TO REALISTIC THEATRE] Teatr i dramaturgiya: Ezhemesiachnyi obshchestvenno-politicheskii i khudozhestvennyi zhurnal teatra i dramaturgii [i.e. Theatre and Dramaturgy: Monthly Political and Art Magazine on Theatre and Drama]

      Moscow, 1934. Full set of 1934. #1-11/12. 29,5x21 cm. In publisher's cloth with silver colored stamping (title and year). Publisher's wrappers of all issues are preserved in the binding. Very good. Spine is rubbed, with a few small tears of the extremities (#2), rare owner's markings in the text. Each issue of 5000 copies. Richly illustrated with photographs, color plates, illustrations, set designs, etc. In the beginning of 1930s Soviet theatre moved into a new era. All experimental studios and theaters were gradually closing and only one style - Soviet realism - remained and became the official one. The growth of the audience led to necessity of creating new 'popular' theatrical magazine. 'Theatre and Dramaturgy' was a Soviet illustrated monthly magazine, printed as 'Soviet Theatre' from 1930 till 1933, as 'Theatre and Dramaturgy' from 1933 till 1936 and 'Theatre' from 1937. The magazine was supposed to form views of readers and be a trendsetter in this area for the whole Soviet Union as it was the time of building Soviet ideology. The magazine was not meant only for professionals, moreover its unusual design and a lot of illustrations were more appealing to a general public. But among all important materials coming from rulers of the state and party, 'Theatre and Dramaturgy' was providing points of view in the beginning, like some of the current issues include reviews and photos of Meyerhold's experimental works in his theatre. Only later the magazine will execute political order of the party, like criticizing same Meyerhold whose theatre and life ended during Stalin terror.

        Seven Gothic Tales [Out of Africa]

      Putnam, London 1934 - The uncommon First British Edition of Isak Dinesen's first book. Thick 8vo: [6],522pp, with full-color frontispiece (repeating dust jacket design) by Rex Whistler. Publisher's cinnamon colored cloth, spine lettered in gilt; illustrated dust jacket, priced 7s / 6d. About Fine (spine ends bumped, top edge slightly dust soiled); about Fine jacket (spine panel lightly toned). A scarce survival. Blixen's first book, published first in the United States under the pseudonym Isak Dinesen. These intricate and imaginative tales, all set in the nineteenth century, won wide acclaim in America and soon appeared in this edition in Britain and then in Denmark (as Syv fantastiske fortællinger). "Since her pseudonym was quickly penetrated, she published under her own name in every country, except the United States, where 'Isak Dinesen' swiftly became a valuable brand. Among the main stylistic influences on Blixen's tales can be counted the English gothic novel, German Romanticism, Boccacio's Decameron, and The Arabian Nights. When asked why she set her tales over a hundred years in the past, Blixen responded that the past could be more easily recompounded in her imagination, and she would not be forced to resort to realism.

All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Good-bye, Mr. Chips

      Little, Brown, Boston 1934 - First edition, preceding the English edition by six months. Modest offsetting to the front endpapers from a clipping, thus near fine in an exceptionally bright, just about fine dustwrapper. Basis for two films: the 1939 Sam Wood-directed version with Robert Donat (who beat out Clark Gable, Henry Fonda and others for the Best Actor Oscar), Greer Garson, and Paul Henreid, and the 1969 remake directed by Herbert Ross with Peter O'Toole, Petula Clark, and Michael Redgrave. A very nice copy of the true first, American edition, which is much less common than the English edition. As nice a copy as we have seen. [Attributes: First Edition]
