"The last time I saw Julian was at Clive's, two days before he went to Spain...I was determined not to think about the risks, because, subconsciously I was sure he would be killed; that is I had a couchant unexpressed certainty, from Thoby's death I think; a legacy of pessimism, which I have decided never to analyze".

        The Star of Seville : A Drama in Three Acts and in Verse.

      Newtown: Gregynog Press: First Limited Edition 1935 - 4to., xii, [2pp.], 108pp., + 2pp. (Limitation leaf & GG colophon leaf). Bembo type on Batchelor special making of GG watermarked hand made paper, text printed in red and black, initial letters in green, arms of Seville on title-page designed by W Charles Thomas, top edges blocked in gilt. Bound in full black Oasis leather, blocked on both covers with a design of Moorish character, composed of interlaced blind strapwork and gold stars. Spine decorated in blind and gilt with strapwork and stars, titling and device in gilt. A fine clean copy in a superb leather binding. LIMITED NUMBERED EDITION of 175 Copies. (Harrop, 32). THE GREGYNOG PRESS was the brainchild of two sisters, Gwendoline and Margaret Davies. It was established in 1922 at their house, Gregynog Hall, in rural mid-Wales. During the next eighteen years the Press gained a reputation for producing limited edition books of the highest order and ranked alongside the leading Private Presses of the day. Between 1922 and 1940, there were four controllers of the Press, Robert Ashwin Maynard, William MacCance, Lord Haberly and James Wardrop, each of whom left his own mark on the works he issued. Among the illustrators were Blair Hughes-Stanton, David Jones, H.W. Bray and Agnes Miller-Parker. Forty two books were published at the Press. Lope de Vega (also Félix Lope de Vega y Carpio or Lope Félix de Vega Carpio) was a Spanish Baroque playwright and poet. His reputation in the world of Spanish letters is second only to that of Cervantes, while the sheer volume of his literary output is unequalled: he is estimated to have written up to 1,500 three-act plays – of which some 425 have survived until the modern day – together with a plethora of shorter dramatic and poetic works.

        The Great War, the publisher's Home Library binding in four volumes with original wrappers

      London: George Newnes Limited, 1935. Hardcover. Very good. Here is a four-volume set of the Home Library issue in previously unknown cellophane and paper wrappers. The Great War is the first illustrated edition of Churchill's history of WWI, The World Crisis. This edition was originally published in 26 magazine format parts in 1933 and 1934. "Magazine format" does not do justice to the publication, which is profusely illustrated on very durable, heavy paper. The publisher subsequently offered two different 3-volume binding options. A final publisher offering in 1935 was this four-volume set produced jointly with The Home Library Book Company. This last binding option is the most elaborate and striking. It features silver, gilt, and blind stamped decoration on marbled red boards with beveled edges, marbled endpapers, and gilt top edges. This binding commands attention on the shelf. What particularly commands our attention about this set - and indeed makes it a minor bibliographic discovery - is the presence of thick, clear visqueen-type jackets with heavy red paper flaps that nicely complement the red marbled endpapers. These jackets give every appearance of being contemporary to the books. The jackets are age-yellowed, quite brittle, and shrunk, with wear and losses at the extremities and a few small other chips - as we would expect given the age and material. The thick, heavy boards have been very slightly warped, consistent with the contraction of the aging jackets over time. The books show minor soiling at the binding extremities where the jackets have receded due to shrinkage, but are notably clean beneath the jackets. Moreover, though we are incapable of chemical analysis to definitively identify the jacket material, the timing for some variation of Cellophane fits, with widespread introduction of cellulose film to the United Kingdom in the 1930s by the British textile company Courtaulds, which was producing a viscose film named viscacelle in 1930 and by 1935 had evolved into British Cellophane. The fact that the jacket material ages very poorly combined with the commanding attractiveness of the bindings beneath would explain why we have not previously seen any such jackets. Undoubtedly, the few unattractive survivors such as these would be likely to be discarded. The books beneath the jackets are in very good condition. The bindings are clean and tight, apart from the previously mentioned minor soiling at the binding extremities and slight warping of the boards caused by the jackets. The contents remain bright and we find no previous ownership marks. Modest spotting appears confined to the prelims and page edges. The fore and bottom edges are a bit soiled. The top edge gilt remains bright, if a bit dusty. In short, this is not the very nicest set we have ever seen, but is the only set we have ever seen thus, bearing the jackets and thus commanding collector attention. Please note that this heavy set may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.9.d, Woods/ICS A31(dc), Langworth p.118

        Two Bell Ringers. An original drawing with colour wash.

      Self-published. 1935 - Two Bell Ringers. Painted on thick textured buff coloured paper in umber, grey and mauve. This drawing relates to another drawing that we have for sale of a bell ringer. Campbell Dodgson wrote that Austin would do studies in situ and figure studies, incorporating the two together. Although Austin never did a plate of Bell Ringers, he did several plates of Belfries, bells and a Bell ringers Wife (Etching 1934). I think this sketch is a study with possibly a etching of bell ringers in mind, but not completed.There are several pinholes made by the artist for attaching onto board, otherwise in very good condition. There is a Studio stamp on reverse.Image size 370 x 250mmSheet size 485 x 385mm [Attributes: First Edition]

        Seven Pillars Of Wisdom. ( A Triumph)

      London, Jonathan Cape. 1935.. London, Jonathan Cape. 1935., 1935. LIMITED ISSUE of the FIRST EDITION, published for general circulation (originally published privately in 1926). No.486 of 750 copies. Illustrated with three manuscript facsimiles and forty-seven plates including four in colour. Four folding maps. One-quarter pigskin over brown buckram with crossed swords in gilt to front panel, titled in gilt to backstrip, patterned endpapers, top edge gilt. Some minor wear/scuffing to spine ends else a near fine copy, with the accompanying plain paper wrapper (worn). 'Seven Pillars of Wisdom: A Triumph' is the autobiographical account of the experiences of T. E. Lawrence ('Lawrence of Arabia') while serving as a liaison officer with rebel forces during the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Turks of 1916 to 1918. This monumental work had been privately printed in 1922, and a 1926 self-financed subscriber's edition had left Lawrence facing bankruptcy, so author vowed "No further issue of the Seven Pillars will be made in my lifetime". This first trade issue therefore followed in 1935, within weeks of the motorcyle accident that so tragically and prematurely claimed the life of one of the greatest visionary heroes of modern times.

        Taps at Reveille

      New York: Charles Scribners Sons, 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.

        Green Hills of Africa

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 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.

        The 39 Steps (Original UK Pressbook for the 1935 film)

      London: Gaumont, 1935. Original UK Pressbook for the classic 1935 film, based on the 1915 novel by John Buchan. A rare and blazingly beautiful artifact from one of the foundational espionage thrillers of the twentieth century.& & Hitchcock's adaptation of Buchan's novel proved, as usual, to be an improvement on the source material, adding two key female characters and removing a couple of serious plot implausibilities. Of nearly inestimable importance is that Hitchcock found in "The 39 Steps" a theme that would become his favorite, and one whose variations he would virtually exhaust: an innocent man on the run, clever and resourceful but surrounded by a conspiracy he doesn't understand. & & Card wrappers with a color lithograph design, saddle stitched, 12 x 18 inches, faint horizontal fold as issued. Newsprint pages Very Good plus with some minute nicking at the edges, lightly toned, wrapper bright and Near Fine.
