Presentation copy inscribed to the front free endpaper by Nabokov's then agent Otto Klement: 'To Margaret Anne – although not a book for children. O. Klement.' Camera Obscura was the first of Nabokov's works to be translated into English and one of two famously scarce and cheaply produced books issued by the hapless firm of John Long. It sold poorly and was remaindered in red paper boards. Nabokov greatly disliked Winifred Roy's translation and it's poor quality 'prompted Nabokov to undertake translating his next novel, Despair, by himself, a major step in his decision to become an English-language writer.' (Boyd, Russian Years, p.446).

        Lantern Slides and Notes for a Program on Luther Burbank

      E.W. Goodrich, Tremont Temple, Boston, MA - Rare assemblage of hand-colored glass lantern slides for a lecture series on pioneering horticulturalist Luther Burbank. They are estimated to be mid-1920s based on Corwin¿s statements that they are used ¿with permission of Burbank from photographs taken at the time the experiments were made.¿ Slides are housed in a locking pebbled cloth case with attached key on ribbon and were produced by E.W. Goodrich of Tremont Temple, Boston. The lecture notes are for 100 but 93 slides are present. Images include photos of Burbank and family, his home and farms, and many many varieties of plant hybrids. Two brass memorabilia with Burbank¿s image include a small pin (New York: Medallic Art Co.) and a watch fob proclaiming him as ¿The Wizard of Horticulture,¿ an ¿honor award for meritorious work in introducing Stark-Burbank Fruit Creations.¿ Burbank¿s work gave us spineless cactus, rainbow chard, apricot ¿ plum crosses, the most widely-grown variety of Russet potato in the U.S, and hundreds more varieties of food and ornamental flowers. Burbank viewed his work as humanitarian and in harmony with nature, a perspective that bears interest in the current ideological arguments regarding newer technologies used in manipulation of plant genetic material. Elsie Powers Corwin was a member of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society and is listed in the Official Register and Directory of Women's Clubs in America, Volume 15 under ¿Dramatic Readers and Recitals¿ in the list of Official Classified List of Lecturers and Entertainers for the Use of Program Committees. She lists her credentials as a ¿Bachelor of Literary Interpretation.¿ A folded card accompanies the collection of slides as an advertisement for lectures, and is labeled ¿Circular 1935.¿ Her programs besides ¿Luther Burbank, Plant Scientist¿ included ¿The Tournament of Roses,¿ ¿California Travelogues,¿ ¿Our State Flowers,¿ ¿Poems of the Flower World,¿ ¿Shakespeare¿s Garden,¿ and others.

        Ideas of Order

      New York, The Alcestis Press, 1935. 63 p., 1 leaf; 24 cm. Edelstein A2.a quotes a Stevens letter to Latimer: "The book has just arrived and gives me the greatest possible pleasure. It must have taken no end of time and put you and Mr. [Willard] Maas to no end of trouble. But here it is, and it strikes me, quite regardless of its contents, as being a very good job. Too bad that I can't read it. Of course if I were to read any of these things again I should jump out of my skin." "Let me say this: you have been generous in sending me ten copies, and while that seems to have been our agreement, I had forgotten it until Mr. Ney reminded me of it. The chances are that you cannot possibly come out whole, even if you sold the whole edition without difficulty and received the full price for each copy. If I am right about this, and my guess is that I am, don't think of sending me any money. The book is a handsome piece of work, and as it probably will be your first book I should be very glad to go along with you without any royalties or anything of the sort. In fact, it would jolt me to think of royalties under the circumstances." // "This first edition... is strictly limited to 165 copies, signed by the author. Twenty copies, numbered I-XX, are printed on Duca di Modena, an Italian handmade paper, for presentation purposes; 135 copies, numbered 1-135 on Strathmore permanent all-rag paper, are for sale, and 10 copies, marked out of series, are for review." This copy of Ideas of Order has Roman numeral V and Stevens's signature, a calligraphic nightmare which I took to be "Lanac Drumm," one of his "ghostlier demarcations". Inscribed on the second front blank "To S. Foster Damon / who combined kind / deeds with kind / words / J R L Latimer." // Included with the book is Alcestis: A Poetry Quarterly, Vol. I, No. 1, October, 1934 (Edelstein B88; 'Alcestis' only lasted through four numbers), in which were first published eight Stevens poems (the Table of Contents says seven) including The Idea of Order at Key West. This copy of Alcestis is inscribed, on the first page, "To Ernie from Foster." // The two items are protected in a clamshell case made by Jim Dimarcantonio of Hope Bindery. Ideas of Order is in its original glassine jacket which has part missing from the spine; edges of the tan paper covers of Alcestis are slightly chipped; both are in lovely condition. Stock#OB987.

        Three Hundred & Sixty-Five Short Quotations from Horace

      Shaftsbury - The High Press, 1935. Shaftsbury - The High Press, 1935 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A limited edition copy of Naylor&#39;s collection of quotations from HoraceLimited Edition number 170 of 215Bound in quarter leather with marbled boardsQuintus Horatius Flaccus, ( 65 BC 8 BC), known in the English-speaking world as Horace, was the leading Roman lyric poet during the time of Augustus. Horace is generally considered by classicists to be one of the greatest Latin poets and is known for having coined many Latin phrases that remain in use today, whether in Latin or translation, including carpe diem (pluck the day literally, more commonly used in English as seize the day), Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori (It is sweet and fitting to die for one&#39;s country), Nunc est bibendum (Now we must drink), and aurea mediocritas (golden mean. ). His works, like those of all but the earliest Latin poets, are written in Greek metres, ranging from the hexameters which were relatively easy to adapt into Latin to the more complex measures used in the Odes, such as alcaics and sapphics, which were sometimes a difficult fit for Latin structure and syntax. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is some slight wear to the extremities including slight bumping. Internally the pages are bright and clean with the odd spot. There is an ink inscription to the front free end paper. Overall the condition of the book is very good..
