Inscribed by the author: "To the Murrays from Humphrey." The author's only book, one of the great anti-war novels, based on real incidents during WWI.

        Mars Mountain

      1935. Book. Very Good. No Binding. Original pen and ink drawing on paper for the cover art (and frontispiece) for the first edition of MARS MOUNTAIN by Eugene George Key. The work is titled "Dorothy Marie Nelson." MARS MOUNTAIN is considered to be the first science fiction specialty press book. Published by Fantasy Pubs. in Everett, Pennsylvania, in 1935. Chalker & Owings state on page 165 of THE SCIENCE-FANTASY PUBLISHERS: "...right here, that everything starts -- the first attempt by any publisher anywhere to produce commercially viable publications devoted exclusively to fantasy and science fiction." So this is the original cover art for the first science fiction specialty press book. Science fiction art does not get any more historically important than this. The work shows a few creases and some soiling otherwise very good, in a fine black wooden frame with a silver bead and a white linen mat with a black fillet, under UV protective glass. Image size: 6 3/4 inches x 7 3/4 inches. Frame size: 18 1/4 inches x 19 1/4 inches..

        20,000 Streets Under the Sky.

      London, Constable. 1935. - First edition; 8vo; original cloth boards and dust jacket. Inscribed by the author to J.B. Priestley who wrote the introduction, with a loosely inserted signed letter from Hamilton to Priestley. The letter proffers this inscribed copy and hopes that the two might meet during a visit to London to "have the opportunity of thanking you again personally. Priestley thought highly of Hamilton's novels and said so, but his best known statement about him "among the uniquely individual minor novelists of our age" - has often been quoted without his conclusion: "he is a master". The book is very good, a little faded, with Priestley's book plate to the front pastedown. The dust-jacket is good with the spine a little browned, chipped at head with some loss, a few short tears to head and foot and a ring-mark to upper panel. An excellent association copy. Preserved in a custom made drop-back box.

      - Cocteau, Jean. Hand Written Letter from Cocteau, dated April 1935. The letter concerns a letter from Madame Mendes, wife of Catulle Mendes, creator of "La Revue Fantasiste". The couple were prominent in the 1930's french artistic scene and their daughters were painted by Renoir. Addressed to "Mon Cher Ami", he states he is returning a letter from Mme. Mendes without opening it. He states he wrote the article with love and respect, and if it contains inaccuracies, it's that he tries to paint fast and through all sorts of fog. The ensemble is correct. He also states that when he knew Mendes, he was no longer living at home, and spoke of his wife without sweetness. He says he liked and admired her, and he does not change. Signed Jean Cocteau, with the characteristic 5 pointed star below. COCTEAU, JEAN (1889-1963). French poet, novelist, playwright, visual artist, and film director.

      N.p, n.d. [ca. 1935]. One page, about 500 words, 11 x 8 1/2 inches. A few marginal tears without loss, else fine. From the collection of Eugene V. Connett, III, proprietor of The Derrydale Press . A brief but interesting survey of fly fishing in the 1840s along the eastern seaboard from Boston to Philadelphia. Connett notes a number of specific locations and individuals, and ends, "We must remember that those were the days before Brown Trout or Rainbows were found in our eastern streams. I have always felt that the introduction of Brown Trout provided just the needed incentive for the introduction of the dry fly to this country, as I have always found them to be the prime surface feeders of the trout family. But, of course, these oldtimers did some surface fishing with the many dropper flies --sometimes as many as three!--which they played on the surface." A LIVELY AND INFORMATIVE ARTICLE

Age-toning and tiny nicks or tears; the beige example has a fairly large dampstain, the others are near fine. Apparently a bout of some consequence, the broadside states: "It is of especial interest that the PRIZED TITLE BELT held by Stiffie Williams will be at STAKE during the fight. The belt now on display downtown in the PLEASE-U BARBER SHOP window will go to the WINNER!!" Of some additional interest is the undercard: "The promoters are making this entire program an all star affair. They are bringing one of the most famous Southern Negro Middleweight Boxers, THE DREADED KID SHORTY STARR of Rome, Ga. to meet Fayetteville's own great Negro Middleweight TIGER HARRIS."

        Soil Survey of Polk County, Texas. Series 1903, Number 36.

      Washington, D. C.: U. S. Government Printing Office, 1935. - 8vo., (9 x 6 inches). Large fine folding chromolithographed "Soil Map: Polk County Texas" (one or two new folds), 1 in-text map. Original publisher's printed wrappers, with map of Texas on rear cover (small chip from upper corner of rear wrapper, lightly browned). Provenance: Contemporary manuscript ownership inscription to front cover. First edition. With a very large folding map in full color showing the different types of soil in Polk County, Texas. "Creation of the Division of Agricultural Soils in the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) in 1894 marked the beginning of a national commitment to soil science and soil survey activities. By 1899, soil surveyors had commenced field investigations for the first USDA soil surveys; one century later, soil surveys have been published for most counties in the United States. The surveys - inventories consisting of narrative descriptions, tables, and maps - include a wealth of interpretive information about soil characteristics and properties and about their limitations and potentials. These interpretations of how soils respond to different uses assist land users in making appropriate decisions. And while Congress and the federal government have supported the soil survey effort to help guide agricultural development, surveys have side application in a variety of environmental and land management uses. The development of the national soil survey program grew out of the intellectual curiosity and personal ambition of two men in particular, Charles W. Dabney, Jr. and Milton Whitney. But it was research at state agricultural experiment stations that created the favorable climate for Dabney's and Whitney's successes. This state-level research grew from a desire by state agricultural leaders to understand their soils and the relationship of the characteristics of those soils to plant growth. Ultimately, they believed, knowledge would contribute to a healthy agricultural economy" (Helms, ed., p. 1). Douglas Helms, et al., eds., "Profiles in the History of the U.S. Soil Survey."

        Now, Howard, no fooling with the toys.

      c. 1935 - Sheet size: 240 × 267 mm. Artists' agency ticket of R. P. Gossop Limited on verso. Pen and ink on wove paper. A lady shopper in a fur coat striding into a toy shop smirks over her shoulder at her husband, who is collapsing beneath the weight of her Christmas shopping. The cartoons and illustrations of Nicolas Bentley (1907-1978) were part of the warp and weft of English popular culture in the 1950s and 60s. Never savage, though often waspishly accurate and exuding an urbane air of amusement at the foibles of his fellows, Bentley's work was familiar to the public from a wide variety of publications. Between 1952 and 1954 he drew regular cartoons for the weekly Time and Tide, and after that for the daily News Chronicle. Between 1958 and 1962 he drew topical cartoons for the Daily Mail under the title "Watch My Line." He also drew many portraits, in black and white line, of famous people, for various papers, including over sixty for the Sunday Telegraph, which began publication in February 1961.

      Boston. Lothrop, Lee, and Shepard Company. 1935. - First Edition with the matching title and copyright page dates of 1935. With "Published May, 1935" and "Printed in the United States of America" on the copryight page. "Dan leaves home because he is driven by an impulse, as are many men, to seek an obscure idea. In his childhood, Dan's father inspired him by tales of a rider on a tall, black horse. The rider grew to symbolize achievement." From the inside front flap of the dustjacket. A very handsome copy in finely woven light gray cloth stamped brightly in red on the front boards and on the spine. Very clean and tight throughout, apparently an unread copy. With the exception of some scattered dust foxing on the top edges, the book is near fine. In the pictorial, striking dustjacket printed in red and black. The original price of $2.00 is at the top of the inside front flap. There are several small chips at the top and bottom of the spine ends and at the corners. The folds are edge-rubbed, and there is a 1" closed tear at the bottom of the left spine edge. Overall, a very handsome, collectible copy of this early adolescent novel by the author of "A Tomato Can Chronicle" and "The One-Eyed Poacher." Especially unusual in the original dustjacket. First Edition with the matching title and copyright page dates of 1935. With "Published May, 1935" and "Printed in the United States of America" on the copryight page.

        Taps at Reveille

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1935 First edition, first printing. One of 5,100 copies. Publisher's green B cloth, with board panels ruled in blind, spine lettered in gilt. Very good, with some light rubbing to the corners, light vertical crease and minor toning to the spine, spine head lightly rubbed and worn, fresh boards, a hint of minor offsetting to the endpapers, bright and clean interior. Bruccoli A17.I.a. Taps at Reveille is Fitzgerald's fourth collection of short stories and the last book published during his lifetime. Each such collection was scheduled to follow the publication of Fitzgerald's novels; Taps at Reveille was published a year after Tender is the Night. The collection contains eighteen stories, including: "Crazy Sunday," "A Woman with a Past," "The Last of the Belles," and "Babylon Revisited." According to the publisher, Fitzgerald chose his best short stories for this collection. These selections are full of poignant and amusing stories of youth, gaiety and adolescent error. "Babylon Revisited" is probably the most mature story of the collection, with its rueful contemplation of the Jazz Age in Paris and its follies. (Edith H. Walton, The New York Times).. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        Paths of Glory

      Viking, New York 1935 - First edition. Spine gilt a little rubbed, near fine in near fine dustwrapper with some internal repairs and a scrape on the front panel. Inscribed by the author: "To the Murrays from Humphrey." The author's only book, one of the great anti-war novels, based on real incidents during WWI. The film rights were purchased two decades later by Kirk Douglas, who hired the relatively unknown Stanley Kubrick to direct. Starring Douglas and Adolphe Menjou and scripted by Kubrick, Jim Thompson, and Calder Willingham, the film was a technical and critical triumph and ranks with *All Quiet on the Western Front* as perhaps the of greatest anti-war films. Uncommon signed. See this book in 3D on our site. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
