        THE CASE OF THE CARETAKER'S CAT.

      New York: William Morrow and Company, 1935., 1935. First edition. First edition. Fine, tight, bright copy in dust jacket with light restoration to spine ends and corners. In his will, Peter Laxter guaranteed his faithful caretaker a job and a place to live for life, but Laxters heirs say the deal doesn't include the caretakers cat. When Perry Mason takes the case, he finds much more at stake than an old mans cat....a million dollars to be exact. As he investigates, he finds a web of greed and treachery among the heirs. But which one actually pulled off the almost perfect crime?

        Mission archéologique en Chine (1914 et 1917),

      P., Geuthner 1923 et 1935, - Un atlas (2 tomes) sous chemise demi-toile (chemise moderne), et un volume texte broché. Atlas, tome I: La sculpture et les monuments funéraires (provinces du Càn-si et du Sseu-tch'ouan), planches I à LXVIII; tome II: Monuments funéraires (région de Nankin), Monuments bouddhiques (province du Sseu-tch'ouan), planches LXIX à CXLIV. Volume texte: Mission archéologique en Chine (1914) I: l'art funéraire à l'époque des Han, in-4 carré, 304 pp. orné de 121 figures, broché. Les atlas sont imprimés sur vergé Lafuma des papeteries Voiron. Ces deux missions, inspirées et suivies depuis la France par Edouard Chavannes, visaient à compléter les travaux de ce dernier, en comblant la lacune qui, dans l'histoire de la statuaire chinoise, sépare la dynastie des Han de la dynastie des Tang. Les résultats furent exceptionnels, avec notament la découverte du cheval de Huo Qubing (117 avant J.-C.), qui représentait à l'époque "la plus ancienne statue de pierre authentique connue entre la Perse et le Japon", ou l'identification du fameux tombeau de Qin Shin Huangdi (209 avant J.-C.) près duquel on trouva dans les années 70 la célèbre armée de soldats en terre cuite. La plupart des photographies sont dûes à Victor Ségalen, et de ce fait, leur valeur va au-delà de la qualité technique ou documentaire. "Ce que Ségalen a vue est devenu la substance de son oeuvre. A ceux qui savent et qui aiment les pages que la Chine lui a inspirées, à défaut de leur permettre de voir par l'oeil de Ségalen, [ces images] donneront au moins le plaisir d'avoir fait le voyage à ses côtés." (voir Sylvie Aubenas et Philippe Postel, Victor Segalen, voyageur et visionnaire, catalogue BNF 1999). Un deuxième volume de texte était prévu mais ne vit jamais le jour. Bon exemplaire, sans rousseur. Good copy, without foxing. Large and heavy book, extra-postage will be required. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

White cover and slipcase rubbed and marked. 1935. Limited edition [300]. White leather with gilt decoration and lettering.

Poet Laureate from 1913, Bridges was recognised as a superb craftsman. These poems, originally published in 1885, are beautifully illustrated by Burne-Jones. The drawings had been made by Burne-Jones in early manhood but had never been reproduced and were at that time in the Ruskin Drawing School at Oxford. Being on tracing paper, faded and discoloured, mechanical reproduction was impossible. Under the direction of Loyd Haberly, they were prepared for the engraver by Professor R. Catterson-Smith, who had worked for some years with Burne-Jones in preparing the Chaucer and other Kelmscott Press illustrations, and who was assisted in this instance by Miss Dorothy Hawksley. .

        Burmese Days.

      London: Victor Gollancz,, 1935. Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine in green. With the dust jacket. Housed in a black quarter morocco solander box made by the Chelsea Bindery. Spine cocked, light spotting to prelims, endmatter, and edges, occasional spotting to text block. A very good copy in a lightly toned jacket with slightly nicked and creased extremities, and few closed tears repaired with tape to verso. First UK edition (first published in the US in the previous year), first impression, of Orwell's second book and first novel. Orwell's book, the result of five years' service as a police officer in the Indian Imperial Police in Burma 1922-7, was initially rejected by Gollancz amid concerns that this caustic critique of colonialism might be considered libellous to those portrayed, so it was first published further afield in America. On its first publication in the UK, as here (with names changed to avoid libel cases), the novel was well received, at least among the literati, with Cyril Connolly reviewing it in the New Statesman as "an admirable novel. It is a crisp, fierce, and almost boisterous attack on the Anglo-Indian. The author loves Burma, he goes to great length to describe the vices of the Burmese and the horror of the climate, but he loves it, and nothing can palliate for him, the presence of a handful of inefficient complacent public school types who make their living there... I liked it and recommend it to anyone who enjoys a spate of efficient indignation, graphic description, excellent narrative, excitement, and irony tempered with vitriol.

One broadside on stiff card stock, the other a thin sheet. Both age-toning on the edges, very good. The pamphlet is a single sheet folded once to make four pages. 16mo. Fine. Examples of fragile and rare posters for the traveling exhibition of Pierce's woodcarvings from the Bible and a pamphlet for his exhibit with a list of works.

The smaller poster advertises a "Mammoth Sacred Art Demonstration" held in Columbus, Ohio and viewable by appointment only. Pierce (1892-1984) was born the son of a former slave in Mississippi, became an ordained minister, and worked as an itinerant preacher displaying his carvings in the 1930s. Pierce was also a barber, sculptor, and woodcarver during his long career who lived in Columbus, Ohio. In the exhibition catalog Elijah Pierce: Woodcarver. (Columbus, Ohio: Columbus Museum of Art 1992), the larger poster image is employed in the Introduction on page 11 of the catalog. A rare set of posters and ephemera from early in Pierce's career as a woodcarver. .

        Seven Pillars of Wisdom

      New York: Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc.,, 1935. A Triumph. Large octavo. Original grey-brown buckram, gilt lettered spine, gilt crossed swords device on front cover, reddish-brown top edge. With the dust jacket. Housed in a custom made green cloth solander box. Portrait frontispiece, numerous plates (many in colour), 4 maps. Jacket repaired on verso, front panel with small loss at head and tape mark at foot; manilla envelope taped to rear pastedown, containing numerous clippings relating to T. E. Lawrence (ostensibly collected by the recipient and spanning 1935-1962, when she died). A very good copy. Second American Edition, first impression, first state of the jacket; but the first procurable American edition as the first (1926) was published in a tiny edition of just 22 copies (only 10 of which were nominally for sale at $20,000) and was purely to establish copyright. Presentation copy from T. E. Lawrence's youngest brother, A. W. Lawrence, inscribed (on the day following publication) on the front pastedown: "To Hazel D. Hansen, with love and gratitude [Greek quotation from Homer, see below] A.W.L. Cambridge, England. September 28, 1935". The recipient, Hazel D. Hansen (1899-1962), was the distinguished Professor of Classics at Stanford. Arnold Walter Lawrence (1900-1991), archaeologist, was the author of two monograms on Hellenic studies: Later Greek Sculpture (1927) and Greek Architecture (1957). He was also T. E. Lawrence's literary executor, a position which "he performed long and faithfully" (ODNB). Reportedly to pay his brother's inheritance tax, A.W. sold the US copyright of Seyen Pillars (the "subscriber's text") to Doubleday Doran in 1935, resulting in this first US trade edition. At Stanford Hansen studied under, and later collaborated with, the distinguished Professor of Greek Alexander T. Murray. Murray's translation of the Odyssey was first published in 1919 and is still available in the Loeb classics series. T. E. Lawrence, when working on his own translation (published 1932), would certainly have known and consulted Murray's version. Murray translates A.W.'s quote from the Odyssey (Book 11, line 367) as "upon thee is grace of words, and within thee is a heart of wisdom"; these are spoken by King Alcinous of Phaeacia to Ulysses. In the mid 1920s both Hansen and A. W. Lawrence were studying in Athens, she at the American School of Classical Studies, he at the British School; and it most likely there that they would have begun their clearly warm and affectionate acquaintance.

Sein Reichtum soll die Gemeinde erkennen lassen, wie dem Christen vor dem Angesicht Gottes alles zum Gebet wird.
