        Seven Pillars of Wisdom, the U.S. publisher's quarter leather limited edition, copy #178 of 750

      New York: Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc., 1935. First, Limited Editon. Hardcover. This is the publisher's finely bound, hand-numbered limited issue of the U.S. first edition, copy #178 of 750, quite scarce in the original publisher's dust jacket and slipcase. Seven Pillars of Wisdom is the story of T.E. Lawrence's (1888-1935) remarkable odyssey as instigator, organizer, hero, and tragic figure of the Arab revolt against the Ottoman Empire during the First World War, which he began as an eccentric junior intelligence officer and ended as "Lawrence of Arabia." This time defined Lawrence with indelible experience and celebrity, which he would spend the rest of his famously short life struggling to reconcile and reject, to recount and repress. Lawrence famously resisted publication of his masterwork for the general public during his lifetime. The saga is remarkable. He nearly completed a massive first draft in 1919, only to famously lose it when his briefcase was mislaid at a train station. This first draft was never recovered. At a fever pitch, Lawrence wrote a new 400,000 word draft in 1920. This punishing burst of writing was followed by an equally brutal process of editing by Lawrence. In 1922, a 335,000 word version was carefully circulated to select friends and literary critics - the famous "Oxford Text". George Bernard Shaw called it "a masterpiece". Nonetheless, Lawrence was unready to see it distributed to the public. Finally, in 1926, a further edited 250,000 word "Subscribers' Edition" was produced by Lawrence - but fewer than 200 copies were made, each lavishly and uniquely bound. The process cost Lawrence far more than he made in subscriptions. To recover the loss, Lawrence finally authorized an edition for the general public - but one even further abridged and entitled "Revolt in the Desert". It was only in the summer of 1935, in the weeks following Lawrence's death, that the text of the Subscribers' Edition was finally published for circulation to the general public. Simultaneous with both the British and U.S. general trade first editions were finely bound, hand-numbered limited editions of 750 copies. The limited issue of the U.S. edition is bound in quarter dark brown pigskin over maroon buckram boards with beveled edges, maroon top edge, and red and yellow head and foot bands. The U.S. limited issue came with both a dust jacket and stout cardboard slipcase, both in brown paper with laid paper chain and wire lines. The dust jacket is printed only on the spine, the slipcase unadorned. Here is copy #178 of 750, hand numbered thus on the limitation page. Condition is near fine. The dark brown pigskin spine of this U.S. limited edition proved highly susceptible to toning, soiling, and cracking, so most copies encountered suffer shabby spine appearance. This copy is a notable exception, with a beautifully square, tight, and clean binding. The boards are flawless with virtually no wear. The leather spine is also quite nice, clean with no cracking, bright gilt, only a hint of uniform toning, and fractional wear at the spine ends. What prevents our grading this copy as fine are a few tiny worm holes at the lower rear hinge. We find no damage to the text within. The damage is minor and does not appear recent. The contents are complete and clean apart from a little transfer browning from the pastedown glue. The dark red topstain retains flawlessly uniform and unfaded color. Light spotting appears confined to the untrimmed fore and bottom edges. The dust jacket is complete apart from shallow chipping at the spine ends. The spine is modestly toned and creased. We have fitted the dust jacket with a removable, archival quality clear cover which places no stress on the publisher's slipcase. The original publisher's slipcase is fully intact, with no split seams. We note minor wear to extremities and some overall staining and soiling. Please anticipate additional shipping cost for this large, heavy book, depending on shipping destination. Bibliographic reference: O'Brien A053

        Treasure Cruise:

      London: H. F. & G. Witherby,, 1935.. The Voyage of the "Vigilant" to Cocos Island. Octavo. Original blue boards, titles to spine in orange, bottom edge untrimmed. With the dust jacket. Photographic frontispiece with tissue guard, 5 similar plates, fold-out map, cartographic plate. Spine sunned, boards slightly marked, one plate loose, some rubbing and a couple of nicks to dust jacket. A very good copy. First edition, first impression. With the second impression dust jacket. Publisher's file copy, with their bookplate to front pastedown. Commander James Plumpton recounts a voyage in which "a party of nine, including the author, sailed a converted 50-ton Brixham trawler to Cocos Island by way of the Panama Canal...On reaching Cocos Island they found an expedition with a three-year exclusive treasure hunting permit from the Costa Rican government already at work. After extended negotiations, the two expeditions joined forces. Their search, made under very difficult conditions, was unsuccessful" (Toy). The vessel was sold in Punta Arenas and the crew made their own ways home, with Plumpton himself still believing the elusive treasure to be buried on the island, somewhere near the high-water mark. Like many Witherby titles, this volume concludes with a chapter offering practical advice on the matter at hand - in this case, treasure-hunting. With a preface by Admiral Alexander Victor Campbell, who writes that the author "served me gallantly and well in the Dardanelles Campaign and elsewhere.

      London John Murray 1935. 354 pages. pages. Index. Black and white plates. Multi-panel fold-out family tree at back. "Light is thrown from a fresh angle on Disraeli and his erratic wife, as well as on Thackeray, all three friends of the family. There are glimpses of Louis Napoleon and the disturbances of 1848 and of 1870, of the Austrian Court in 1873, and of three generations of our own royal family. In their letters and conversations we find characteristic traits of Mr. Gladstone, Lord Rosebery, and their Liberal supporters, and of Burne-Jones and Meredith, and other artists and writers.... The Rothschild family in its earlier days appeals to the imagination by its financial power, which brought it into contact with those who ruled the destinies of Europe and by its munificence; while its Judaism and the peculiar features of its solidarity make the family history interesting and, in some ways, unique." - from Preface.

        Photo Album - Indonesia, Bali & Philippines

      Asia, 1935. Dutch East India (Indonesia), the Philippines, 1935. Album of 191 black and white snapshot photographs, by a German traveller who purposefully captured the local ways of life, fortuitously at the advent of development and economic transformation. Photographs vary slightly in size, the majority measuring 11 x 7 cm, and the smallest one measuring approximately 4,5 x 8 cm. Qto. quarter calf over irregular autumn yellow patterned paper, gilt lines and labels to spine. Volume measures approximately 30 x 24 x 4 cm. Slight wear to spine and corners, otherwise in Very Good Condition, with crisp and bright images. So sprightly, detailed and numerous are the scenes in this volume, that a comprehensive visual tale of Maritime Southeast Asian and Austronesian custom and history unfolds in delightful imagery. Industrious and energetic, most islanders are unaware that they are being photographed as they are occupied at fabricating and selling their wares, patrolling streets, tending rice fields, conveying produce or straw, washing linens in the river, harvesting crops, greeting foreigners and steering carriages, hence the snapshots provide a most authentic perspective. The 40 some photos taken in Singpaore, then part of the British Crown Colony known as the Straits Settlements, include a tour of Bukit Timah, Chinatown, the historic Raffles Hotel which dates back to early colonial times, bustling street scenes, and harbour views upon arrival. Six (6) photographs are taken in Johor. Especially rare and captivating are the 30 photographs of Bali, which had only recently been opened to tourism in 1914, as is evident by the very diminutive and humble original 'Bali Hotel'. Dating to the earliest stages of tourism and reprieve from oppressive foreign colonial administration, the images precede eminent development, and in and of themselves preserve Balinese tradition. In Kintamani, some residents are preparing for a coq fight (known as tajen, and practiced in an ancient religious purification ritual to expel evil spirits). Others are working hard at harvesting rice, and one man weaves a straw mat by hand with no tools or apparatus of any kind. The foreigners are welcomed with the traditional "Legong" Balinese dance. A lovely bamboo hut village and spectacular rice paddies fields are also photographed. [In response to negative criticism following the Southern Bali campaigns (1906-08), in order to establish of an "ethical policy" while introducing their modernization plans, the Dutch in Bali endeavoured to learn and preserve Balinese culture. Depicting Bali a "living museum" of classical culture, in 1914 Bali was opened to tourism. In the 1930s, anthropologists Margaret Mead and Gregory Bateson, and artists Miguel Covarrubias and Walter Spies, and musicologist Colin McPhee created a western image of Bali as "an enchanted land of aesthetes at peace with themselves and nature", and western tourism first developed on the island.] In Java the 26 images feature street scenes and beautiful ladies in Djokjarta (Yogyakarta), spectacular gardens, large bundles of straw balanced on the shoulders of hard working men. The photographer stayed at the Grand hotel and took a well warranted tour of the 9th century temple known as Borobudur, returning with views of exquisite reliefs including that of Queen Maya in a horse drawn carriage retreating to Lumbini to give birth to Prince Siddhartha Gautama, or Buddha (Lalitavistara). Batavia (now Jakarta) appears in 40 photographs, where nostalgic images include horse-drawn carriages, a simple street tram, locals merchandising on the street, riverside shops and an outdoor market, lovely views of the canal. Historic buildings include the museum, and the "Hotel des Indes" which was considered one of the oldest and most prestigious hotels in Asia. Three rare photographs show the first coffee plant in Weltevreden named Tek Sun Ho, Eerstee Weltrever-denschee Koffiebranderij, which was founded in 1878 by a Chinese immigrant from Guangdong, named Liaw Tek Sun (Liau Tek Siong) and his wife who is a native Indonesian. In front of the coffee factory, on the Molenvliet Canal, bamboo rafts are conveying building material and residents are washing linens. In South Sulawesi the photographer includes 3 views of the Balu Batoa peak near Pangkajene. In the Philippines, Manila and environs are seen in approximately 45 views , such as the palm tree flanked Bonifacio Drive named for leader of the 1896 Philippine Revolution, the legislative building (National Museum), a colonial college, and the baroque Quiapo Church as it stood before remodelling. Large businesses crowd a street along the Pasig river, one rooftop advertising the Adamson School of Industrial Chemistry which was founded in 1932 by George Lucas Adamson. Manila being virtually unrecognizable compared to today, photographs include homes on stilts, tiered rice paddies, and a quaint little village of straw thatched roofs. The traveller arrived here during the American Period, after the Philippine Independence Act in 1934, but before the first Philippine Presidential elections held in September 1935. Dates and locations occasionally penciled in margins reveal that the two-week voyage on the SS Resolute of the Hamburg America Line, took place in March 1935, arriving in Singapore on the 16th. This may have been the vessel's final cruise voyage before being renamed "Lombardia" by the Italian Government and converted to a transport ship for the Abyssinian War. . Very Good.

        An Original Photo Album of Egypt

      Egypt, Palestine., 1935. Original album of unique aerial views and several large photographs compiled by an officer of the Royal Air Force while serving with 45 Squadron to maintain presence and authority in Egypt and Palestine. Contains 179 black and white photographs, each captioned in manuscript and neatly mounted with corners onto 23 brown cardstock leaves separated with tissue guard. Also with a clipping of the squadron's singed camel insignia, and seven (7) Egyptian postage stamps pasted to inside of front board, three of which are postally used, four of which are not. Photographs vary in sizes, the smallest measuring approximately 2.5 x 3.5 inches, and the largest 8.25 x 6.25 inches. Oblong Quarto Album, green cloth string-tied boards, fraying at extremities, loss of spine, otherwise in Very Good Condition, internally sound, a uniquely pleasing album of photographs. Although the Kingdom of Egypt was an independent Egyptian state established under the Muhammad Ali Dynasty in 1922 following the recognition of Egyptian independence by the United Kingdom, it's sovereignty was subject to severe limitations imposed by the British, who retained enormous control over Egyptian affairs, and whose military continued to occupy the country. Remarkable photographs of RAF Forty-Five Squadron in Egypt during the interval between the two World Wars, this album boasts a profusion of images, nothing less than stellar, including many aerial views of iconic monuments which are usually only observed from the ground. A riveting first photograph of Egypt consists of a Fairey IIIF reconnaissance biplane flying just above cloud level with its spotter and pilot clearly visible and vulnerable in its open design. The region between and inclusive of the Western Desert and Mersa Matruh, reminiscent of the First World War British Campaign against Arab and Berber tribes, is predominant in the volume, seen in approximately 56 photographs. Here images show a wreckage of a Vickers Valentia aircraft which claimed the life of 7 men, the very first train to enter Matruh upon first opening of the Desert Railway, SS Aboukir and SS Bacchus at port, a large group photo of No.3 RAF Air Stores squadron, the Sudan camel corps, and a Senussi tribe encampment [The Senussi fought against the British in Egypt and Sudan in WWI]. The town of Mersa Matruh and outlying buildings appears in a few photographs, while scant sign posts, a rudimentary gravesite, an ancient Arab gateway, and a desolate railway station pierce the otherwise desolate terrain. Particularly interesting is a photograph of military tanks being deployed for the Second Italo-Ethiopian War which was currently underway (October 1935- May 1936), and another of the Gloster Regiment marching away from Mersa Matruh after the war. Over a dozen photographs are taken in the environs of Helwan in May 1935, including cityscape views, the RAF Camp, and a perfect formation of bi-planes and pilots commemorating the squadron, all captured while flying overhead. Native mud huts with flat straw roofs and Egyptians filling clay jugs in the Nile are photographed up close from the ground. [During the early part of the 20th century, the city and outlying regions of Helwan was the site of RAF Helwan, a major British airbase, which was later used by the Egyptian Air Force.] Twenty-nine (29) photographs illustrate the city of Ismailia and the RAF camp there, some specifically dated June 1935. These feature the mooring mast erected for the ill-fated R101 rigid airship - the largest blimp at the time, an impressive and unusually clear view of the war memorial to unknown soldiers of the First World War, a commemorative bust of Ferdinand de Lesseps, views of the Suez Canal, various aircraft, and a horse-drawn carriage known as a gharry. Egyptian custom and traditional labour is portrayed in striking photographs taken in Alexandria, some of which include street merchants, furniture makers, tailors sewing by hand, brass workers, and a butcher. City streets and historic buildings are also photographed, as well as a distant view of the palace of King Farouk, and the RAF camp at Aboukir (Abu Qir) only fourteen miles northeast of the city. There are 14 photographs of Alexandria. Antiquity is seen in photographs of a Roman cave and Roman storehouses excavated by archaeologists in the Western Desert, remnants of a Roman marble and limestone pavement mosaic in Alexandria, a most unusual view of the Edfu Temple largely under water during Nile flood season, an equally rare perspective of the Great Sphinx of Giza and its surroundings from a vantage point that only an aircraft can provide, and an enchanting view of the pyramids. Nine (9) photographs are taken at Sakkara or Saqqara, the vast necropolis for ancient Memphis, featuring a corridor of columns, the famous step pyramid built for Pharoah Djoser by his vizier Imhotep, and detailed wall reliefs inside the tomb of Akhethotep and Ptahhotep, where cameras are now prohibited. Other photographs include a military parade in Cairo, a Bedouin village situated near an oasis, a ferry on the at Suez Canal at El Kantara (Al Qantarah El Sharqiyya), a steamship on the Nile, and so forth. As well as in Egypt, 19 photographs are from Jerusalem, Palestine, then part of the short-lived British Protectorate Trans-Jordania. These include the Jaffa Gate, the Damascus Gate entrance to the Old City, the Mount of Olives and Garden of Gethsemane, the Tower of David, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Mosque of Omar, the Wailing Wall, views of the Dead Sea and River Jordan. An exceptionally pleasing album of photographs from Egypt and the ever-coveted Holy Land..

        Green Hills of Africa

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1935. First edition. Near Fine/Very Good +. A Near Fine copy in a Very Good+ dust jacket. The delicate green boards have faded in relation to the dust jacket and now show an impression of the title on the front board. The top edge is dusty, but internally the book is in excellent condition. The dust jacket is complete, but is reinforced at the head of the spine and at the lower rear flap fold. The spine and front panel is rather faded. True first printing with the Scribner's "A" and the green band on the rear of the jacket with seven lines of printing (Grissom's "A"). Hemingway's second work of nonfiction with an initial printing of just 10,550 copies. "Green Hills of Africa" is Hemingway's true life account of a safari he and his wife had gone on two years earlier. (The trip would also inspire Hemingway's short story, "The Snows of Kilimanjaro.") The book not only focuses on Hemingway's adventures hunting and the native environment, but also has many of his thoughts on writers, fiction, and, famously, "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn." "...[T]he best-written story of big-game hunting anywhere I have read. And more than that. It's a book about people in unacknowledged conflict and about the pleasures of travel and the pleasures of drinking and war and peace and writing." (Contemporary New York Times review). Near Fine in Very Good +. dust jacket.

        Lady De Rothschild and Her Daughters 1821-1931

      John Murray, London, 1935, Hard Cover, Book Condition: Fair, First EditionSize: 8vo - over 7?" - 9?" tall, 354 pages. pages. Index. Black and white plates. Multi-panel fold-out family tree at back. "Light is thrown from a fresh angle on Disraeli and his erratic wife, as well as on Thackeray, all three friends of the family. There are glimpses of Louis Napoleon and the disturbances of 1848 and of 1870, of the Austrian Court in 1873, and of three generations of our own royal family. In their letters and conversations we find characteristic traits of Mr. Gladstone, Lord Rosebery, and their Liberal supporters, and of Burne-Jones and Meredith, and other artists and writers.... The Rothschild family in its earlier days appeals to the imagination by its financial power, which brought it into contact with those who ruled the destinies of Europe and by its munificence; while its Judaism and the peculiar features of its solidarity make the family history interesting and, in some ways, unique." - from Preface. Considerable wear and staining to blue cloth exterior. Gift greetings inside front board. Prior owner's name atop front free endpaper. Binding tender but intact. A worthy reference copy of this important work.
