        Chinese Pottery and Porcelain from the Eumorfopoulos Collection available for Private Purchase

      Bluett & Sons, London 1935 - First edition. Octavo. Softcover. Very good. 58 Pages, 331 objects described. No images. A very scarce catalogue of Chinese ceramics from the Eumorfopoulos collection that were kept by Eumorfopoulos rather than being sold to museums. The 331 objects offered for sale in this catalogue also have the number corresponding to the entry in the massive 6 volumes on Chinese ceramics of the Eumorfopoulos collection. Almost all of the 331 objects were depicted in the 6 columes. This Bluett sales catalogue is thus of the greatest importance as one can now easily see which items were sold on the open market and to date may still circulate in the trade or come available in the future.

Anthea joined publisher Michael Joseph as secretary in 1946, married him in 1950 and took over the running of the firm after his death in 1958. "It was largely due to Anthea Joseph's energy and determination that the company survived intact to settle down as a part of the Thomson Organization and to enjoy two decades of very successful publishing" (ODNB). Originally published in the US the previous year, the first UK edition of Appointment in Samarra is increasingly hard to find, particularly in the dust jacket.

        Alice in Wonderland Toy Theatre.

      [London]: , c. 1935. 33 hand carved and painted figures. Miniature plywood theatre (220 × 270 × 145 mm), frontage painted in stone-grey with fluted column either side containing 2 scenery inserts. Together with 35 individual fine thin birch ply figures after John Tenniel, painted in watercolour with inked detail, the Cheshire Cat with tab hole-punched for attachment to front scenery insert, the remaining 34 (including 5 tableaux with 2 figures and one with 3) tab-mounted to bespoke stands, 3 of which each holding 2 figures on separate tabs (the Walrus and the Carpenter; Alice and the Caterpillar; Alice and Humpty). Duchess figure duplicated with a prototype on commercial mahogany-type plywood, illustrated in indian ink. A few figures very slightly loose in mounts. Excellent condition overall. This remarkable handmade toy theatre recreates some of the most iconic scenes from Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There. The set contains thirty-one figures or groups derived from John Tenniel's line drawings, including the White Rabbit, Alice's meeting with the Caterpillar, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, and the Red Queen and White Queen's examination of Alice after she becomes a queen. The figures are made from fine, thin birch plywood and set into corresponding stands. Another piece, the head of the Cheshire Cat, hangs from a small pin set in the arch of the theater's proscenium. The theatre itself is also made of plywood, with decorative moulding creating the proscenium arch, and is open at the top to allow for easy movement of the figures. It comes with two nested set pieces, the outer one with an opening cut in the middle showing the second set behind it. The former is painted to resemble the outside of a castle wall, complete with turrets extending downward and quatrefoil windows. The latter has an inset, non-functional doorway and stands on its own. The thirty-two figures, the theater, and the set pieces are all finely drawn with pen and ink and brightly painted with water-colour by Alfred Henry Seymour, ostensibly for use by his children. Seymour worked his entire life at the Bank of England, and it is unclear if he had any formal artistic training; however, the degree of skill required to shape the wooden figures and create colour images from black and white shows the craftsman to be a true artist. A final figure, that of the Duchess, survives from an earlier version made from mahogany and tinted with india ink and wash. A second Duchess was later reproduced using the final birch and water-colour technique, suggesting that the artist rejected his earlier attempt because of its more translucent finish. It does not appear that the theatre was ever used; the figures were rediscovered after Seymour's death in 1993. Thus, they retain their pristine condition and bright coloration. A fine example of a unique "Alice" toy. (Proscenium measures 11 by 9 by 5 3/4 inches; average sized figure, the Queen of Hearts, stands at 3 3/4 inches tall; one of the largest pieces, Humpty Dumpty with Alice, is 6 1/8 inches tall and 4 3/4 inches wide).

        Green Hills of Africa

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1935 Decorated by Edward Shenton. First edition, first printing. Publisher's bright green cloth, with Hemingway's signature stamped to the front board in gilt, black spine labels, lettered and decorated in gilt; in the original first issue black and green dust jacket with the wider green band to the rear panel. Very good, with the usual toning to the spine and board edges, else bright and clean; unclipped dust jacket, with some light wear and rubbing to the edges, toning to the spine, bright and clean panels. With the exception of the usual toning, a very tight and pleasing copy. Hanneman A13a. Originally published serially in Scribner's Magazine, Green Hills of Africa is Hemingway's second non-fiction book, based on his 1933 safari in East Africa. The text is divided into four parts: "Pursuit and Conversation," "Pursuit Remembered," "Pursuit and Failure," and "Pursuit as Happiness." In a similar style to his first non-fiction work, Death in the Afternoon, Hemingway interweaves his hunts of various animals with his vehement criticism of contemporary authors. As John Chamberlain wrote in his 1935 review for The New York Times, "With one hand he tears out the entrails of a gazelle and strips the skin clean; with the other he rips the hide from Malcom Cowley or Waldo Frank. It is the most literary hunting trip on record.". 1st Edition.. Hardcover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.
