        The Secret People

      London. Newnes. 1935, 1935. First Edition. 8vo. Dark blue pebble grain cloth with gilt titling to spine, . The pebble grained cloth would appear to be a variant (unless it is the same cloth as the elusive Ferret Fantasy copy, although that is described as vertically ribbed blue cloth; the fact that we differentiate between details to this degree is in some way an explanation as to why you never see rare book dealers dating supermodels or movie stars...or indeed out in daylight...or even dating). Not only is this copy near fine in previously unknown blue cloth, but it is also clad in a splendid example of its fabulously scarce dustjacket; bright, clean, fresh and unfaded with a 2cm closed tear to the front spine hinge and a 1cm wound to the lower-mid spine panel, coupled with some slight cosmetic edgewear. Altogether a lovely and extremely rare object. This is Beynon-better-known-as-Wyndham's first novel; a lost race extravaganza set in (oddly enough) 1964, with a suitably prescient touch Queen Elizabeth the Second sits upon the throne of England (she wasn't in line for succession in 1935), our hero is flying his 'strato-plane' across the Sahara with a feisty redhead and her cat...there's a crash, there are decadent underground pygmies (obviously!), giant mushrooms, the feisty redhead is worshiped as a goddess, oh, and Italy is planning to flood the Sahara in order to turn it into an inland sea. All in all it makes genetically engineered man eating plants seem tame by comparison.

        The Diary of Samuel Pepys M.A., F.R.S

      London - G. Bell and Sons, Ltd, 1935 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The famous diary of Samuel Pepys with extensive additional notes from Braybrooke and Wheatley, in a decorative set, uncommonly including the dustwrappers. Bound in cloth with gilt lettering and unclipped dustwrappers. Complete in Ten Volumes. Pepys is a persuasive companion, and because when he speaks directly to his reader he is so palpably honest, he can seem to have the right of every argument. There is a powerful personality at work here, but also great art. As a diarist he is simply the best there was, with the good fortune to be close to the centre of momentous events. He has the continuing compliment of countless imitators; he is commemorated in a good few hostelries, and in the activities of the club which bears his name. (DNB)Henry Benjamin Wheatley, 1838 - 1917, was a bibliographer and editor. Pepys was the subject of his private scholarship as well as his public work: in 1880 he published Samuel Pepys and the World he Lived in, which was later followed in 18939 by the fullest edition of the diary before the Latham one. (DNB)Condition: The bindings are generally tight and firm. The front inner hinges of volumes 5,6 and 7 is slightly strained but still firm. There is slight wear to the extremities, including slight bumping with faint discolouration. The duswtrappers have chipping and small closed tears, with discolouration. The dustwrappers have large sections missing, prominent to the spine panels. There are pencil inscriptions to the front panel of volume 6. The dustwrappers ofvolumes 1 and 2 are missing. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright. With an ink signature to the front free-endpaper of volume 1. Overall the condition is very good indeed, with fair dustwrappers..

        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.
