        THE PETRIFIED FOREST.

      Charles Scribner's Sons,, New York: 1935 - First edition. INSCRIBED, "For Garrett D. Byrnes, with many thanks, Robert Sherwood March 29th, 1940." Byrnes had a long career at the Providence Journal as a writer, editor and arts critic. Sherwood won the Pulitzer Prize for drama three times, although not for this one, which may be better remembered than his Pulitzer winners in that it was a success on Broadway and in the film version with Leslie Howard, Bette Davis and a young Humphrey Bogart. One corner of book a little bumped, otherwise near fine in dust jacket (with Howard on front) with edges showing wear but still at least very good.

        The Cave at Altamira at Santillana del Mar, Spain

      Tipografia de Archivos, Madrid 1935 - An elaborate volume on the prehistoric cave paintings of Altamira, updating a 1906 edition by Breuil and Emile Cartailhac. Large quarto with 52 plates, both black & white photographs and full color plates reproducing Breuil's original drawings of the animals in the Altamira frescoes. A number of the color plates are double pages; all are protected with tissue guards. The caves at Altamira were discovered in the 1870s and were the first caves to be found that contained prehistoric artworks. Their Spanish discoverers were ridiculed for claiming that the paintings belonged to people of the Upper Paleolithic era, and it wasn't until decades later, after numerous other such caves had been found around Europe, that this became a generally recognized truth. Breuil, a French archeologist, visited the site and made drawings of a number of the animals depicted on the cave walls for the 1906 monograph -- notably in particular a species of bison that had been extinct in Spain for thousands of years; three decades later he updated and expanded his work, taking advantage of increased access to the cave and newly available lighting. The present volume has more plates than the earlier one, and all of the earlier images have been updated and improved. The discovery of the caves at Altamira was one of the most significant archeological discoveries of the 19th century, changing forever our understanding of our human forebears. This volume was produced during the Spanish Second Republic, the relatively brief period of liberal democracy preceding the Spanish Civil War and the subsequent forty years of fascist rule. A beautiful book, three quarter bound in leather and attractively and elaborately printed. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Taps at Reveille.

      Charles Scribners Sons, New York 1935 - First edition, first state, with pages 349-52 uncancelled and with "catch it" reading on page 351. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author, "For Isabel Owens Hoping we'll both be able to look back to this winter as a bleak exception, in a business way from F. Scott ("Old Scrooge") Fitzgerald". Isabel Owens worked full-time as Fitzgerald's Baltimore secretary from 1932-36. She continued part-time in this role until his death in 1940. In addition to her secretarial duties, Owens acted as a foster mother to the Fitzgeralds' daughter Scottie and companion to Zelda. A bright near fine copy with the spine gilt bright in a very good dust jacket with some professional restoration. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A splendid association copy. Taps at Reveille was published in 1935 and is a collection of 18 short stories, the final collection of short stories Fitzgerald published. He chose for inclusion in this volume what he considered his best short stories from the previous decade. The Freshest Boy, Crazy Sunday, and Babylon Revisited are the more popular short stories. Edith Walton reviewed the collection in The New York Times (1935): "Basil Duke Lee [in The Freshest Boy] is a bright, sensitive, likeable boy, constantly betrayed by a fatal tendency to brag and boss. He knows his failing, especially after the minor hell of his first year at boarding school, but again and again he is impelled to ruin an initial good impression Mr. Fitzgerald is always miraculously adept at describing adolescent love affairs and adolescent swagger." Walton considered Babylon Revisited, however, "probably the most mature and substantial story in the book. A rueful farewell to the Jazz Age, its setting is Paris and its tone one of anguish for past follies." In 1954, the short story was cinematized by MGM and starred Elizabeth Taylor and Roger Moore's as his Hollywood debut. The Oscar winning title song, by Jerome Kern, featured first in Lady Be Good (1941) but it was popularized by its play in this beloved drama. Film critic Bosley Crowther praised it when she said, "Where Fitzgerald did it in a few words-in a few subtle phrases that evoked a reckless era of golden dissipation toward the end of the Twenties' boom-Richard Brooks has done it in a nigh two-hour assembly of bistro balderdash and lush, romantic scenes" (Crowther, 1954). Consequently, Taps at Reveille both sheds light on the literary and cinematic climate of the decade and provides insight into some of Fitzgerald's final publications. Fitzgerald dedicated Taps at Reveille to his literary agent Harold Ober, who worked also for writers of Walton's status - J.D. Salinger and William Faulkner.

        TWO SIGNED LETTERS; an INSCRIBED FRAMED PHOTOGRAPH and a STERLING SILVER CHRISTENING MUG.

      - Four items, comprising: 1. A four page autograph letter, dated 1.9.34, on the printed octavo letterhead of The Golfview Hotel, Nairn, Scotland, horizontally creased from folding. The letter is addressed to 'My dear Madge' [Mrs. A. H. Parkes], and reads in part: 'I am so glad that "Beggars' Horses" whiled away a few hours for you. Yes - it was a nice murder. (I knew how to do it beautifully). I have written two since that - "Sinbad the Soldier" & "Spanish Maine", & am writing an Indian one "Explosions". I'll send you early copies'. Much of the letter is to do with health - of both Mrs. Parkes and Wren, including a description of the author's ongoing heart problems: 'I go quite unconscious & turn blue & make a lot of trouble when the attacks come'. The letter is signed affectionately 'Bestest love, (Isabel hasn't really got it quite all), Christopher'. 2. A typescript letter, signed and with brief handwritten annotations, on the author's narrow cr. 4to letterhead, dated 15th June 1935, lightly creased from folding into four. This letter is also to Mrs. Parkes, thanking her for sending a portrait of her son Francis Patrick, who was Wren's god-child. It contains mainly domestic news: mention of a recent cruise; the sale of the Wrens' cottage at Beaconsfield, and the probable purchase of a new home at Farnham Common; plus a brief reference to Wren's latest book, Bubble Reputation. The letter is signed 'devotedly, P. C. Wren* (*or Christopher, of course)', and a postscript explains 'You will excuse the typewriting, won't you. My right hand is out of action again'. 3. A signed photograph of Wren, mounted and framed, inscribed on the reverse 'To Francis Patrick from his God-Pa'. (A rectangular section has been cut from the back of the frame, so that the inscription is visible). 4. A sterling silver christening mug, hallmarked [Adie Bros. Ltd., Birmingham, 1930], with the engraved inscription 'Francis Patrick Parkes with every good wish from his godparents Isabel and P. C. Wren. March 26th 1932'. In form, the mug is 11cm. high, and 9 cm. wide at the lip; a plain baluster shape onto a circular spreading foot, with a leaf decorated scroll handle. *All items are from the collection of [Francis] Patrick Parkes. The long-standing friendship between the Parkes family and the Wrens began when the two couples met on a cruise, probably in 1927, around the time of Wren's second marriage. Isabel, who is also mentioned in both letters, was P. C. Wren's second wife, and had previously been married to Cyril Graham Smith, a civil engineer with the Indian Education Service at Poona. Wren sent presentation copies of many of his books over the years, initially to Mr. & Mrs. Parkes, afterwards to their son, all signed and/or with affectionate inscriptions from the author.P. C. Wren was quite reserved about his personal life, and few photographs of him are extant. The one he sent framed to his god-son differs very slightly from that featured in those of his books which contained an author's portrait. Like the 'official' publicity photograph, the framed portrait shows him in regimental dress, with the shoulder crown denoting the rank of Major, but with the addition of a monocle over his left eye. The uniform could be that of the Poona Volunteer Rifles, which Wren joined while he was working for the Indian Education Service, although he did not rise higher in the ranks than Captain. (It is generally accepted that after he became a successful author Wren exaggerated his military experiences, particularly his unsubstantiated claim to have served in the French Foreign Legion). Together, 4 items:

        Burmese Days

      London: Victor Gollancz,, 1935. Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine in green. Boards lightly rubbed, front hinge just splitting, a very presentable copy. 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.

        Green Hills of Africa.

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1935 - First edition. Octavo, original green cloth. Inscribed by the author, "To Gweneth P. Beam wishing her plenty of luck Ernest Hemingway." The recipient was a secretary at Scribners at the time of publication when Hemingway inscribed this copy to her. Some light fading to the cloth as usual in a bright near fine dust jacket. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A very sharp copy. Green Hills of Africa was published in 1935, but initially appeared in Scribners Magazine the same year (Meyers, 1985). The first edition explains that Hemingway "attempted to write an absolutely true book to see whether the shape of a country and the pattern of a month's action can, if truly presented, compete with a work of the imagination." The author's intentions were quickly confirmed when the first print-run sold a popular 10,500 copies, and it was aptly praised by The New York Times as "[a] fine book on death in the African afternoon.The writing is the thing; that way he has of getting down with beautiful precision the exact way things look, smell, taste, feel, sound." Not unlike Hemingway's virtuosic abilities, Green Hills of Africa also offers the writer's opinions on the value of his contemporaries: "The good American writers are Henry James, Stephen Crane, and Mark Twain Henry James wanted to make money. He never did, of course." Hemingway adds that most American writers are inadequate and "came to a bad end" The value of Green Hills of Africa, therefore, is three-fold. It serves as masterly written entertainment, a successful social experiment that tested the receptivity of the American public, and an insight into the author's literary evaluation. The Observer is correct when it wrote, "If he were never to write again, his name would live as long as the English language, for Green Hills of Africa takes its place beside his other works on that small shelf in our libraries which we reserve for the classics."
