        Butterfield 8

      Harcourt, Brace, New York 1935 - First Edition (so stated). 8vo: [4],310pp. Publisher's black varnished V cloth, spine lettered in gilt, illustrated dust jacket priced $2.50. Hint of a lean, few faint spots of loss to varnish and minor rubbing to spine gilt, else a Near Fine or better copy in Near Fine or better jacket, vibrant and bright with several short edge tears and nicks. A very sharp copy of a title prone to fading and heavy wear. Bruccoli A4.1.a. O'Hara's third book (second novel), and easily among his best. "Set in the district of New York City covered by the Butterfield 8 telephone exchange, the story recounts the final days in Gloria Wandrous?s tragically short life in the late spring of 1930. In the throes of an unwelcome love affair with Yale alumnus Weston Liggett, Gloria temporarily purloins a fur coat belonging to Liggett?s wife, visits her best friend illustrator Eddie Brunner, and tries to determine what to do with her life. Flashbacks detail a history of pre-adolescent sexual abuse, liberal misuse of alcohol and far too many encounters with men. This time, Gloria desperately hopes, will be different. But Liggett displays a casual attitude toward their relationship that leaves Gloria unsure until the very end when, fleeing Liggett?s advances on board a pleasure boat, she falls overboard to her death. Butterfield 8?s reputation has suffered much through its unfortunate associations with . . . the 1960 film that bears its name [directed by Daniel Mann, and starring Elizabeth Taylor, Laurence Harvey, and Eddie Fisher] but which has precious little else to do with it. Freed at last from these associations (and with the unreserved endorsement of writers like social critic Fran Lebowitz and historian Shelby Foote), the novel has enjoyed a much-deserved renaissance in the last decade. Indeed, Lebowitz goes so far as to call O?Hara 'the real (F Scott) Fitzgerald' for his anatomisation of American manners in the 1930?s. O'Hara always claimed that his various protagonists were taken from the psychological profiles of real people, but here was a bone fide roman à clef, drawn from the diaries and tragic demise of one Starr Faithful, alleged to have had relationships with a number of prominent citizens, including former mayor Jimmie Walker. . . The focus on Gloria Wandrous (with its reference to real life) was intended to carry Fitzgerald?s Flapper Age into the more earnest 1930?s. Today Butterfield 8 might still be dismissed for its absence of social relevance. But it might equally be argued that this glimpse into New York life on the cusp of the Great Depression is all the more salient for its hedonism in the face of catastrophe. The strange case of Starr Faithful is still recalled by those who wish to reference this era in American social history. And John O?Hara?s novel deserves to be part of that history, as well."

FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS of Einstein and Rosen's famous paper introducing the "Einstein-Rosen Bridge", now known as a "wormhole."

Beloved on science-fiction writers, the wormhole was Einstein's attempt to remove the problem of unphysical singularities in his gravitation theory. The wormhole is a mathematical portal in space-time, allowing a space traveller to move more or less instantaneously through the universe and come out in a distant part of it, or into another universe" (Moffat, Einstein Wrote Back: My Life in Physics).

        A Study of Tom Thomson. The Story of a Man Who Looked for Beauty and for Truth in the Wilderness

      Discus Press, Toronto - 1935, 131 out of 450 copies set by hand by the author and printed on Kelsey press. () Very good. xxii, 133pp. Octavo. Green cloth covered boards with gilt lettering on spine. Boards show a slight bow and mild bumping to corners. Slight discolouration to endpapers. Text block is generally very clean and bright. Bottom and side outer edges untrimmed. A few B / W illustrations within. Four tipped in colour plate reproductions, including frontis. Slight crease to frontis page. A nice copy. Signed and numbered in black ink by the author in the limitation page. Canadian author Blowden Davies moved to Toronto in 1921 where she met with the GROUP of SEVEN, a group of artists renowned for their post-impressionist styled portrayals of Canadian landscapes. Her interest in Canada's artistic community grew leading to the authorship of this book. Davies' texts are well known for exploring Canadian social history. Blodwen Davies was a prolific writer, publishing works including: Storied Streets of Quebec (1927), Old Father Forest (1930), Daniel Du Lhut (1930), Ruffles and Rapiers (1930), Saguenay and Gaspe (1932), Romantic Quebec (1932), the Charm of Ottawa (1932), Youth, Marriage and the Family (1948), Quebec: Portrait of a Province (1952) and Ottawa: Portrait of a Capital (1954). The majority of Davies' work was historical, but in the years leading up to her death she developed an interest in folklore and mennonite history in Canada. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Underworld of the East. Being Eighteen Years Actual Experiences of the Underworlds, Drug Haunts and Jungles of India, China, and the Malay Archipelago.

      London: Sampson Low, Marston & Co., 1935 - Octavo. Original red cloth, lettered in black. In the strikingly simple typographical dust jacket. 18 plates. First edition of this uncommon memoir of a young Yorkshire mining engineer's psychonautic experiences in the East, just a handful of copies on OCLC. "To the suspicious reader, James Lee's Underworld of the East might at first sight appear to be an elaborate hoax. Far more than nay other example of the turn-of-the-century travel genre, it presents our jaded modern palates with the sort of Orient of the Mind which we imagine far more often than we get: a twilight world of ports, red-light districts, drug dens, and secret chambers of vice from Aden to Kyoto, as strange as opium dreams yet as real as bamboo and stale tobacco, and our guide is not some prurient flaneur protesting his shock and disbelief at every step but a mining foreman from Yorkshire who, during the course of the book, is largely preoccupied with smoking, swallowing and injecting as many drugs as possible Even more suspiciously, he defuses the near-universal problem which the sympathetic and unprejudiced reader has with colonial memoirs by being resolutely sympathetic and unprejudiced towards the local people - even marrying an Indian girl who he subsequently treats with nothing but love and respect But perhaps most suspicious of all is the way in which Lee presents us with an account which significantly rewrites the social history of drugs in the period leading up to their prohibition But a second glance confirms that Underworld of the East even if it seems too good to be true, is none the less exactly what it claims to be" (Mike Jay in the introduction to the 2000 Green Magic reprint). Highly desirable thus, in the oddly spare typographical jacket, predominantly white, the final word of the title - "East" - in stencil block capital shadow-lettering overlaid on a black and white image of a teeming Indian street scene.
