        Green Hills of Africa

      New York: Charles Scribner, 1935. 1st. Cloth. Good/Good. An unusual copy of the 1935 1st edition, 2nd state (without the "A" on the copyright page).

The boards are relatively clean, the binding solid, the dustjacket --in spite of a few chips and some creasing-- is 95% present.

        Too True to Be Good, Village Wooing & on the Rocks. Three Plays [Signed Association Copy]

      Leipzig: Bernhard Tauchnitz, 1935. Undetermined. very good. Tauchnitz edition. [1-8], 9-314,[6]pp. 16mo. Half green morocco over marbled boards. Gilt title to spine and "Tauchnitz" in gilt to foot of spine. Shelfwear to boards, corners, and head and tail of spine. Spine lightly sunned. T.e.g. Internally tight and clean. Signed and inscribed by Shaw on the title page to Raymond Savage "Dear Raymond Savage. You May as Well Keep This One. G. Bernard Shaw. 26 Feb 1935.". With 7 pages of correspondence laid in between Savage and Blanche Patch, Shaw's personal secretary. The letters from Patch are signed typed letters, and the letters from Savage are carbon copies. All letters dated between February and May of 1935. Letters folded with some light edgewear. An excellent, signed association copy of this collection of three plays by George Bernard Shaw. Shaw has inscribed the book to Raymond Savage. Savage was a literary agent, writer, and associate of Shaw to whom Shaw has presented this book. Laid into the book are 7 letters to and from Savage and Blanche Patch, Shaw's long-time secretary, discussing the book offered here and an article Shaw wrote, "Germany Should be Permitted to Arm to the Hilt." Savage was acting on Shaw's behalf to publish the article with King Features Syndicate, although we could find no record of its publishing. The letters go on to explain that Tauchnitz Publishing sent Savage 6 copies of "Too True to Be Good...," which Savage then sent on to Shaw. Upon receiving the books, Shaw signed a single copy, which he sent back to Savage as a thank you. Thus, this book appears to be one of 6 specially bound Publisher's presentation copies, sent to Savage for him to present to Shaw. A fascinating little book and collection of letters with excellent provenance, passing through the hands of Shaw, Shaw's long time secretary, and Savage. Tauchnitz published British and American authors in English for distribution on the European continent. 1935

Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. ). Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen einen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung.

        The Note-Book.

      London: The Nonesuch Press,, 1935. Called the Rossetti Manuscript. Edited by Geoffrey Keynes. Octavo. Original blue buckram, title label to spine, grey endpapers, top edge gilt. With the dust jacket. A superb copy with the jacket only slightly creased at the extremities and with three closed tears. First edition thus, number 29 of 650 copies, with the very scarce dust jacket. This fine Nonesuch Press edition constitutes the first facsimile printing of Blake's famous notebook, known as the "Rossetti Manuscript" since it was acquired by Dante Gabriel Rossetti in 1847. Selections from the manuscript, with some over-liberal alterations, were published in Gilchrist's Life of Blake 1863, but it was only when the great Blake scholar Geoffrey Keynes had it photographed in full in 1924 that "an accurate and final text" was published in the Nonesuch Press edition of Blake's Writings in 1925. This edition presents the full text, with its many integrated drawings, for the first time in photographic (as well as letterpress) facsimile.

        THE OLD WALDORF-ASTORIA BAR BOOK; With AMENDMENTS DUE TO REPEAL OF THE XVIIIth

      New York: A.S. Crockett, 1935. Hardcover. Good Only. Green cloth-covered boards, 7 1/2" x 5 1/4". Staining to boards, and joints, and moderate wear to extremities, especially spine,which shows fraying to top and bottom. Very slight crack at rear joint, but apart from a slight spine lean, is still very tightly-bound. Previous owner's stamp to front free endpaper. Lacks dustjacket. Albert Stevens Crockett was a well-known and respected journalist whose interests ranged from spirits (this book), to spiritualism, and communication with the departed soul of his late beloved step-daughter (his book Revelations of Louise). Earlier, Crockett's Old Waldorf Bar Days, by his own account, was more about the social mores of the day, and less about the actual drinks. After that eventful day of repeal, December 5th, 1933, however, Crockett realized there were few barmen alive, or of those yet extant, who remembered many of the recipes of the countless pre-Prohibition libations. He found one, however, a Joseph Taylor, who had managed to hang on to a copy of the informal Waldorf "Bar Book" wherein all new and successful recipes were dutifully inscribed, and incorporating its contents, created this (recipe) book. The author writes: "For the convenience of students of the cultural history and mores of the American people, as well as for those who wish to set a goal before starting to mix, thebibulous concoctions long known and served at the Bar of the Old Waldorf have been arranged alphabetically, and in two general classes. The cocktails have been set down in one list and the others, which might be classed as 'beverages'..." Besides the revised formulas for cocktails and other mixed drinks.included [are} a number of recipes...mostly gathered outside of the United States, and many of them tested and approved by author."

        THE MEXICAN REVOLUTION. A 6-PAGE AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED. A first hand account of an attack on the village of Zimapan by "rebels" [Zapatistas].

      Zimapan, Hidalgo, Mexico, August 7, 1935. - - sc - Six pages consisting of over 1,000 words penned on both sides of 3 sheets of 10-1/2 inch high by 8-1/8 inch wide buff-colored paper. In a lengthy letter James H. Armstrong, the author of this account, responds after reading a book which Mrs. McDougall has sent him. The book, Rosa E. King's "Tempest Over Mexico" which had just been published that year, has stirred up Armstrong's memories and feelings. He doesn't view the "rebels" (The Liberation Army of the South, known as the Zapatistas) with as much fondness "She rather idealizes Zapata, though strangely she makes no mention of his brother who accompanied him all the time, and glosses over the terrible cruelty of the Zapatists." He goes on to describe, at length, an attack by the Zapatistas "When the town was attacked by the rebels for the first time, I had advance information from one of the rebel sympathizers who worked for us, so was not surprised when a group surrounded the town and demanded that the small garrison surrender or else the place would be taken by 'sangre y fuego' - 'blood and fire!' The town authorities decided to resist and the women and children of the principal families were gathered into the big house." He goes on to describe that night and the "all-day attack" which followed until "through their scouts the rebels received word that a relief column was coming, so they retired and that unpleasant spell was over." Describing a subsequent attack, he writes of joining the "Jefe Politico, a very good friend" who'd organized a little band of volunteers to escort the women as they would all try to reach the next town. The group was overtaken and, to protect the women, surrendered to the Zapatistas. "As a foreigner, I was deputed to approach with a white flag and arrange terms. One of the women gave me her white petticoat to flaunt and up the hill I went." Signed "Jas. H. Armstrong". The pages are folded once horizontally and twice vertically for mailing. There is some minor soiling with creasing to the right edge. Very good. A very entertaining first hand account of an event during the Mexican Revolution.The writer, James H. Armstrong was an American superintendent of the Hidalgo Copper Mining & Smelting Company in Zimapan, Hildago. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      (Cortland, N.Y.: The Bibliophile Press), [1935], 1935. First edition, first issue. Crane A20. Fine copy.. Small 8vo, original pictorial beige wrappers with silk ties, 8 pages. A fine copy of the first issue of Frost's poem "The Gold Hesperidee" which first appeared in 1921 in the magazine Farm and Fireside, but was never collected in Frost's published books.

        ZAGREB, CROATIA: NACRT GRADA ZAGREBA MJERLIJO 1:5000. SASTAVIO: GRADSKI MJERNI?KI ODSJEK GODINA 1934-35. [PLAN OF THE CITY OF ZAGREB TO A SCALE OF 1: 5000. MUNICIPAL PLANNING DEPARTMENT, YEAR 1934-35.]

      Zagreb, . 1935 - Lithograph in colour, on 11 sheets, unjoined and untrimmed, Complete as issued, would join in an irregular shape as intended (Very Good, exquisite printing quality, sharp and clean with wide margins to all sheets, one sheet with longer repaired tear, margins slighty dusty, with tiny tears), measurements: each sheet 60 x 72 cm (23.5 x 28.5 inches); if joined would form a map of irregular dimensions, maximum approximately: 220 x 240 cm (86.5 x 94.5 inches). Exceedingly rare – the official ‘master plan’ of Zagreb recording every significant detail of the city during its historical apogee of the 1930s, being a gargantuan 11 sheet map, exclusively issued for the use of government administrators and leading building developers, employing unusually fine chromolithography. This colossal map is the finest general cartographic record of Zagreb from the period of its historical apogee, during the 1920s and ‘30s. It is the official ‘master plan’ of the city drafted by Zagreb’s urban planning department and printed by means of the highest quality chromolithography for the select use of administrators and leading private land developers. The map was produced in extremely small numbers, and was not made available to the public for purchase (thus explaining the lack of imprint, etc.). The map served as the official basis for major urban planning decisions during an unprecedented period of explosive physical, economic and population growth. The map provides a panoptic view of all of Zagreb, labelling every street, square, park, significant feature and, most impressively, every building (noting each by its street number), as well as the limits of every cadastral lot. The ‘Legenda’ (Legend), located below the title on Sheet 1, explains the colour coding of the features on the map. The classifications labelled ‘zgrade’ (buildings) include: ‘privatne’ (privately owned), coloured pink; ‘javne gradske op?ine’ (public, municipally owned), coloured red; ‘državne i ostale’ (public, state and other), represented in grey. Other features described include: ‘šume’ (woods), coloured pale green; ‘perivoji’ (parks), in light green; and ‘vode’ (water), coloured in blue. Beyond the colour coding, virtually all of the features are accompanied by additional labelling. In addition to being large scale, the map is very well designed, showcasing an enormous amount of information with an elegant and practical clarity of presentation. The map is arguably one of the finest maps of Zagreb ever produced, and indeed, of any major European city from the period. The map captures the entire city during what was its historical apology, during the 1920s and ‘30’s, following three generation of transformative change. The ovoid outlines of the medieval city are still clearly visible on Sheets 4 & 7. Until the middle of the 19th Century, Zagreb was largely confined to this small area, being nothing more than a regional centre with population of barely 17,000 (in 1851). However, beginning in the 1850s, spurred by the Croatian National Revival, Zagreb grew steadily in population and wealth, expanding beyond the old town. The railway arrived in 1862, the gasworks were established in 1863 and a modern water system was created from 1878. This spurred industrial growth, and the formation of the new working-class and industrial districts to the west and south of the old city. It also saw improvements to the large plazas extending out of the old city, as well as the construction of grand public edifices, in the Austro-Hungarian style. Indeed, Zagreb acquired monumental architecture, arranged along massive open spaces, akin to Vienna and Budapest. Most notably, the era also saw the re-development of Ban Jela?i? Square, to this day, the heart of Zagreb. SEE OUR WEB PAGE FOR LONGER DESCRIPTION. References: Nacionalna i sveu?ilišna knjižnica u Zagrebu [National and University Library in Zagreb]: NSK 000237054.

O'Brien as one of the four finest short story writers of the 1920s, along with Ernest Hemingway, Sherwood Anderson, and Manuel Komroff. Benefield adapted this comedic novel from his own short story, and the novel became the basis for the 1936 film with Harry Carey, Gabby Hayes, and Gladys George, who was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar in her debut film. .

        PICTURES TAKEN IN THE PARADISE OF THE PACIFIC HAWAII THROUGH COLE COLE [KOLEKOLE] PASS BY PACK TRAIN [manuscript title]

      [Various locations in and around Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii, 1935. Seventy-eight mounted silver gelatin photographs, either 3 1/2 x 5 1/4 inches or 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches. Oblong octavo photograph album, paper-covered boards, string-bound. Front cover detached, covers and spine chipped. Some album pages chipped, but photographs remain largely untouched. Very good. An absorbing collection of photographs capturing American military life in Hawaii during the first half of the 20th century, with the great majority of the photographs captioned in ink on the album pages. The unnamed photographer and compiler of the photographs apparently served at the Schofield Barracks in Honolulu, as he includes several photographs of the base, including the "Boxing Bowl." He also records other notable locations around Honolulu, including the Waipahu Sugar Mill, the Kilaeua Crater, Japanese Temple, the Mid-Pacific Railway wreck, Kapiolani Park, the Honolulu railway station, Sand Island, the naval destroyer JEANNE D'ARC, Sampans Haleiwa Bay, the Monoa Hotel, the Waipahi Sugar Mill, Diamondhead and Kahala Bay, Waikiki Beach, several shots of volcanoes and lava formations, and more. He even includes a shot of the pack mule he presumably used in his wanderings. Hawaiian photographs are scarce in the market, and continually more desirable, especially with holographic notations, like those present in this intriguing album.
