        The House In Paris (In Superb Condition)

      The First UK printing published by Gollancz in 1935. The BOOK is in near FINE condition and appears unread.A little pushing to the lower spine tip and a small bookseller sticker to the rear pastedown, otherwise appears unread.Free from inscriptions, stamps and erasures.The fragile paper WRAPPER is complete and is in near FINE condition.Minor fading of colouring to the spine and edges which is far less than usually encountered.A hint of creasing to the upper spine and front cover in places.The red lettering on the front cover is very bright.The wrapper looks very attractive in the removable Brodart archival protector. Bowen's fifth novel.An early admirer of 'The House in Paris' was Virginia Woolf, a good friend of Bowen's.In a letter about the book,Woolf wrote,'I had the feeling that your world imposed itself on my world,while I read,which only happens when one is taken in hand by a work.' A.S. Byatt, in her introduction to the 1976 Penguin edition, stated she had been reading the novel since the age of ten.Bowen is generally acknowledged as an important twentieth-century English (and Anglo-Irish) writer.'The House in Paris' was written during a period of great activity (she published four novels and a short story collection in the 1930s,besides writing literary reviews), and received positive reviews.Early Bowen titles are very scarce to find in any condition.This is a superb copy and certainly the nicest copy we have ever encountered.

        Les forest de Cochinchine [Vietnam].

      Vietnam, Duyen Ng, 1935. Oblong photo album (24.5 x 34.0 x 2.5 cm) with 29 mounted b/w photographs (each ca. 22.5 x 16.5 cm). Cloth-covered boards with gilt lines and gilt-titled morocco label mounted on the front board.= The photographs show rivers and tropical lowland forests, as well as villages -with large trees- and people in "Cochinchine"; probably most, if not all, from the extreme south of Vietnam (one building bears a sign with "Nam.Can.Ouest", which is currently situated in the Vietnamese province of Bac Lieu). The album deals principly with the lumber trade: on several photo versos, there are handwritten descriptions of the trees, with their local and Latin name, as well as the exact locality. Each is captioned "Service Forestier de Cochinchine", and numbered. Other photos deal with fishing, or show the wider environments. Several photographs are signed "Ng-Duyen". Duyen Ng is a common name in this area and could not be traced to a particular photographer. On the versos, there are handwritten notes about the place where each of the photographs was taken. Above the first photograph, someone has written in pencil "Album executé en 1935 quand j'étais garde de la Cochinchine". Garde is the French word for guard, but here it means forester. Some photos lightly toned, but generally in a very good condition. A very nice, unique item.

        Seven Pillars of Wisdom A Triumph

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1935.. FIRST TRADE EDITION. Large octavo, pp.672. With 4 maps, 54 other illustrations. Publisher's brown cloth with bright gilt titles, gilt device to upper, top edge tinted, others untrimmed; in original cream dust-wrapper titled in black to spine and upper. No inscriptions or price-clipping. The book is near fine with minor shelfwear; jacket lightly worn at crown and a vertical storage fold to panels. Most attractive, with a contemporary 4-page printed 'Bibliographical Note' loosely inserted. 'Seven Pillars of Wisdom: A Triumph' is the autobiographical account of the experiences of T. E. Lawrence ('Lawrence of Arabia') while serving as a liaison officer with rebel forces during the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Turks of 1916 to 1918. This monumental work had been privately printed in 1922, and a 1926 self-financed subscriber's edition had left Lawrence facing bankruptcy, so author vowed "No further issue of the Seven Pillars will be made in my lifetime". This first trade issue therefore followed in 1935, within weeks of the motorcyle accident that so tragically and prematurely claimed the life of one of the greatest visionary heroes of modern times.

        Jobber Skald

      First edition, 8vo; original cloth boards. Inscribed by the author on the front free end paper, 'For my old Friend Lawrence Pollinger From John Cowper Powys in celebration of the longest Intimate Association (except one man & one woman) I have ever had with anyone not a brother or sister in this country or in any other country.' There follows four lines in Greek which Powys states is here read in the context of Homer & Hesiod. He translates the Greek as ' "Come Muse, sing not to me of things that are, or that shall be, or that were of old, But think of another song..." So says my old friend Lawrence to me now. June 15 1959.' Lawrence Pollinger was Powys's literary agent and was agent to many important writers of the 20th Century including Graham Greene, H.E. Bates, Scott Fitzgerald, Dorothy Parker, D H Lawrence and John Wyndham. Weymouth Sands is the title of the American first edition of this work, but prior to its publication in England, Powys and his English publishers were successfully sued for libel by Gerard Hodgkinson, who claimed that the character of Philip Crow in A Glastonbury Romance had been based on him. The damages awarded crippled Powys financially, and he was forced to make substantial changes to the British edition of Weymouth Sands. The title of the English version was changed to Jobber Skald and all references to the real-life Weymouth were cut. Weymouth Sands was eventually published in full in England in 1963. Spine faded and wear to the extremities.

      1935. 8vo. 1 p. To Walter Creighton: "We were afraid it was something of that kind, as we haven't seen anything of your activities for so long. It's good to know that you are better [...]". - Walter Creighton (1878-1958) was a son of Mandell Creighton, Bishop of London, and Louise Creighton, "who was one of Robert von Glehn's daughters. He gave up training to be a doctor to train as a singer; he gave the first performance of Vaughan Williams's Songs of Travel in 1904 and also had a minor career as an actor. After various personal crises, he served with distinction in the First World War, and was awarded the Military Cross. He developed into an excellent organiser, and in 1924 organised the Pageant of Empire at Wembley Stadium; in 1934, he devised and organised the Pageant of Parliament at the Royal Albert Hall. In after years, he moved to Antibes" (Valerie Langfield: Roger Quilter. His Life and Music [Woodbridge 2002], p. 287). - On headed paper.

        The Pastures of Heaven.

      New York:: Covici, Friede,, 1935. . A Very Good plus copy with some light foxing to the boards in Very Good unclipped dust jacket with chipping to the head & foot of the spine, a small damp spot near bottom of spine and a closed tear. Previous owner name on front jacket flap. A very uncommon copy of Steinbeck's uncommon second book in a very collectible state. "The Pastures of Heaven" is a short story cycle consisting of twelve interconnected stories about a valley, the Corral de Tierra, in Monterey, California, which was discovered by a Spanish corporal while chasing runaway Indian slaves. Enchanted by the valley's natural beauty, the corporal names it Las Pasturas del Cielo or "The Pastures of Heaven." The stories are written in classic Steinbeck style; the lives of the families that relocate to the valley are portrayed with a mixture of humor and poignance. A recurring theme in the book is the pain caused when people try ineptly to help or to please others.The text sheets for this 4th issue are from the original 2500 sets printed by Brewer, Warren & Putnam for the 1932 First Edition of this title of which only 1000 sets were bound and only 650 copies sold. BW&P sold the remaining 1850 sets to Robert Ballou in 1932 who published approximately 1000 sets in 1932. Of the 850 remaining original printed sets, Ballou published an undetermined number of copies in the third issue. That number was probably in the 500 copies range and in 1935 Ballow sold the remaining copies (350?) to Covici Friede and this 4th issue appeared in 1935. .

        Daily Bread.

      Hampstead, London: , 1935. Octavo. Blue cloth-bound blank notebook, in blue marled paper "jacket", with calligraphic title as above in blue water-colour framed by pink paraphs. Small water-colour vignettes to the free endpapers, illustrated title page, calligraphic dedication, 4 -page pencilled contents with calligraphic heading "Remarks" with paraph, small water-colour vignette at the end, 61 clipped and neatly mounted pencilled illustrations with water-colour, all captioned on the image or beneath in pencil. "Jacket" rubbed, and separated at the spine at the front, light toning of contents, but overall very good. Unique "book" by Pares, made for and dedicated to the man who was to become her second husband, Robert Christopher Bradby. Comprises a series of well-finished whimsically satirical sketches, broadly on the the themes of women's work, fashions, and domestic life; the frontispiece showing the artist pavement-sketching - a pint of beer! - beneath signs, declaring "All me own work" and "Through no fault of my own", her future husband - identified by the initials on his attaché case - passing by, drops a couple of pennies in her hat with a curt aspersion. Pares is best known for her prolific production of stylish art deco-inspired dust jacket designs in the 30s and 40s, here she works, very effectively, in a Fougasse-ian cartoon style. Pares and Bradby were married in 1938, and honeymooned in the Himalaya's, Bip publishing her illustrated account in 1940. The couple divorced in 1948. Unusual and entertaining example of the work of this highly-rated, if slightly biographically obscure, illustrator.

        The Vampire

      The book is firmly bound in red cloth, lettered in black to the spine and the front board, the corners are slightly rubbed and bumped and the boards are a little marked. The text block is slightly foxed and toned, with a neatly written inscription to the front endpaper. The dust jacket is original and correctly priced at 7/6 net to the spine, it is very slightly rubbed and nicked at the edges, lightly toned and with one or two crease marks, but overall a superb example. Horler's most famous novel by a wide margin, a pastiche of Bram Stoker's Dracula, with added Satanists for good measure; it is quite a rarity as a first edition, particularly in such good condition.Horler's most famous novel by a wide margin, a pastiche of Bram Stoker's Dracula, with added Satanists for good measure; it is quite a rarity as a first edition, particularly in such good condition.

        Land Under England [ADVANCE "UNCORRECTED" PROOF with substantive manuscript corrections]

      London: Victor Gollancz, 1935. First Edition. Very good antiquarian condition. 8vo. Original publisher's drab printed wrappers. Spine slightly leaning; head of spine worn and creased with 1" tear on top front joint. Extremities gently rubbed and soiled. Inscription on front cover in blue pencil: "Advance Uncorrected [Proof]. Very rare proof copy, with a number of substantive corrections in MS, of this unsettling "fascist dystopia" novel, now little-known but praised by Karl Edward Wagner as being one of the 13 best Science-Fiction Horror novels ("The Twilight Zone Magazine, June 1983). The protagonist encounters an inhospitable underworld populated by a lost race of humans who obey without question the totalitarian government of this Hollow Earth. There are long descriptions of the ominous landscapes, and the desperation of the protagonist as he attempts to survive. Clearly this work reflects the political landscapes of Europe during the mid-1930s, and remains a poignant warning of the rise of the totalitarian regimes. ADDED: TLS from George [Locke], a formidable Sci-Fi bibliographer and owner of Ferrett Fantasy Ltd (London, 1982) to the buyer Stuart D[avid] Schiff, Sci-Fi scholar, founder of the influential horror and fantasy magazine "Whispers," editor of "Mad Scientists: An Anthology of Fantasy and Horror" (1980), and many other works. His own bibliography on the Internet Speculative Fiction Database lists more than 100 entries. See:
