        INNOCENCE AND DESIGN

      Macmillan 1935 - First edition. Original green embossed cloth with gilt titles in (supplied) dustwrapper designed by Sykes. Authors' presentation copy, inscribed on the front end paper by both authors to Diane and Robert Abdy. From Robert Byron, "To Diane and Bertie from Richard Waughburton 4 July 1935", and from Christopher Sykes, "With many thanks for loan of character, though everyone thinks it's Sachie." A very good copy, with a little wear to the spine ends and back panel, in a very good dustwrapper indeed, which shows a a little wear to the corners. Illustrated throughout in line by Sykes. A fine association. Sir Robert Adby was close friends with Byron and Sykes and their circle including Evelyn Waugh, Nancy Mitford, and Gertrude Stein. The principal character of the novel, Sir Constantine Bruce, is based on Abdy, as Sykes alludes to in his presentation inscription. He is described as "a man of keen aesthetic sensibility . . . disinclined, in fact positively unable to live in ugliness", rather like Adby who was an antique collector who sought to surround himself with beautiful objects. Bruce, like Adby, has a keen interest in architecture and journeys to the Middle-East in search of the Moslem principals of chromatic architecture which he plans to use in his redesign of his Scottish estate. Comedy ensues as Bruce's naivety embroils him with the Military Intelligence. Byron and Sykes wrote the book whilst in Persia (Byron gathering material for The Road to Oxiana), and one can see strains of Sykes in the horseplay passages interspersed with essays by Byron on Islamic architecture and Persian national character. Presentation copies by Robert Byron are rarely encountered in commerce. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Poems [Signed 2x; Association copy with Drawing]

      Baltimore, MD: Waverley Press, Inc., 1935. First edition. Hardcover. Near Fine. A Near Fine copy of the first edition, first printing (light wear, spine lightly sunned, tiny nick to rear board), being copy 86 of a Limited Edition of a mere 200 copies, SIGNED BY KARL SHAPIRO ON THE LIMITATION PAGE, as called for and ALSO INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY KARL SHAPIRO on the front free endpaper under which there is an ORIGINAL DRAWING BY KARL SHAPIRO OF A HORSE; Karl Shapiro's debut book (no dust jacket, as issued). Due to the tone of the inscription, we assume that this is an Association copy presented to a friend. The inscription reads: "To Susanne / from Karl & Evelyn / with all our thanks / & best wishes for / your return via / Bennington to / [drawing of a horse by Shapiro]". A prominent and highly-regarded Poet, Shapiro won numerous Prizes, among them the 1945 Levinson Prize for Poetry, the 1945 Pulitzer Prize in Poetry (for "V-Letter and Other Poems"), the Shelley Memorial Prize (1946), the Bollingen Prize (1968), and the Oscar Blumenthal Prize for Poetry (1963). Shapiro also served as the fifth Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress (now known as Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress or more commonly as the United States Poet Laureate). Copies of this debut book, offered here, are quite uncommon, especially in a condition as nice as is this copy, and copies both inscribed and with a drawing by Shapiro are scarce indeed. A Near Fine copy SIGNED TWICE AND WITH A DRAWING BY KARL SHAPIRO. SCARCE.

        Gaudy Night

      London: Victor Gollancz Ltd,, 1935. Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine gilt. Cloth rubbed and mottled, joints starting, dampstain to hinges, a little spotting to edges of text block. A very good copy. Fifth edition, inscribed by the author on the half title, "Wishing for 36,000 more gaudy nights at 69 Lincoln's Inn Fields, Dear [drawing of a rabbit], Dorothy L. Sayers". Gaudy Nights "combines a sensational detective story with a genuine English novel. In this, Sayers's best work of fiction, the heroine wrestles with a crucial moral choice, while the hero undergoes significant change, so that they may come together in parity by the novel's end, in the manner of Jane Austen. In the course of the novels, Lord Peter also develops from caricature into a fully realized human personality" (ODNB). Volumes signed by Sayers are scarce.
