        River Niger - a novel.

      Boriswood, London., 1935. First edition. Octavo. 287 pages. The three-page Preface is in fact the letter Lawrence wrote to the publisher recommending publication but prophesying commercial failure thereby.Edges spotted. Very good in the very scarce dustwrapper which is very good, chipped, slightly marked and rubbed, and with the Book Guild recommendation sticker on the front. Lawrence's name features on the front panel of the dustwrapper and most of the blurb quotes from his preface.

      Dublin: Cuala Press, 1935. SIGNED LIMITED FIRST EDITION. Fine/Very Good. ILLUSTRATIONS BY: YEATS, JACK B; BROWN, VICTOR; O'SULLIVAN, SEAN; PEET, E.C; KERNOFF, HARRY; MCGONIGAL, MAURICE MUSIC BY DUFF, ARTHUR. SIGNED LIMITED FIRST EDITION OF W.B. YEATS'S BROADSIDES, ONE OF ONLY 100 COPIES SIGNED BY W.B. YEATS AND F.R. HIGGINS AT END OF INTRODUCTORY ESSAY AND ACCOMPANIED BY BREATHTAKING HAND-COLORED ILLUSTRATIONS. Collection of 12 broadsides originally issued individually from January-December 1935. Containing both traditional and new Irish ballads written by Yeats, F.R. Higgins, Padraic Colum, and others. With engraved music throughout. Numerous evocative and emotional hand-colored woodblock illustrations, including many by Jack B. Yeats, brother of the famed W.B Yeats.  Only 300 copies printed, with only 100 copies bound and signed, making this production EXTREMELY RARE. Signed by Yeats and Higgins at the end of their preface, Anglo-Irish Ballads. "Yeats is now seen as one of a handful of Irish writers whose influence and example helped create twentieth-century modernist literature in the English language...his huge international reputation is securely based on the mystery and grandeur of his late verse and the poignancy of his love poetry, but he first came to fame as the exotically Celtic poet of a 'new' nationalist Ireland: almost single-handed, he made Irishness culturally fashionable. Spearheading a great cultural renaissance, he moved into his maturity as the voice of his country" (Oxford Dictionary of National Biography) . It was not merely Yeats, however, who is responsible for arousing Irish patriotism.  The Cuala Press, a small press started by Yeat's sister Elizabeth, is regarded as one of the first publishing houses to bring attention to Irish literature, art and music.  Her production of Broadsidesis no different. "The glory that once was Ireland and could again be Ireland was the fire that burned unquenched in the mind and will of Elizabeth Corbett Yeats" (Colby Library Quarterly) . Dublin: Cuala Press, 1935. Small folio, original cloth backed boards with paper label to upper cover. Complete with what is almost certainly the original plain unlettered dust jacket (we can find no other examples of the jacket, but this is comparable to other jackets for Cuala Press books). Book remarkably bright and clean with only a couple of tiny spots to cloth. A few chips to dust jacket. Housed in vibrant red custom box. An VERY RARE AND NEARLY PERFECT COPY of a book of large cultural importance with dazzlingly fresh illustrations.

        The Box of Delights or When the Wolves were Running.

      William Heinemann, London 1935 - First Edition (first printing) of Masefield's seminal children's classic. 8vo. 418pp. Blue cloth, lettered in gold at spine and upper board with the publisher's motif blind-stamped to rear board. With splendid colour endpapers by Masefield's daughter, Judith, replicating the dust wrapper design, plus a series of chapter header and tail illustrations. A penny-sized area of staining to the top edge and just a trace of fading to the backstrip. Very good indeed in the fugitive dust wrapper, non-price-clipped but with some tanning to the spine panel, a touch of occasional light spotting and soiling and several slivers of loss from the spine ends. The sequel to Masefield's 1927 novel 'The Midnight Folk' continuing the adventures of Kay Harker. This volume is considerably more uncommon than its predecessor, and elusive indeed with the dust wrapper. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Girl Campers" [story in] Woman's World, July 1935

      Woman's World Publishing, Mount Morris, Illinois 1935 - Magazine. 26pp. Stapled wrappers. Light general wear at the edges and with the typical subscription stamp in the upper left corner, very good. Highsmith's first published work, at the age of 14, a series of letters written to her mother and stepfather from a camp for girls when she was only 12, accompanied by four of her cartoons. The letters contain many of the comments one would expect from a young girl along with several intriguing comments predicting her brief comic book career ("bring the Sunday funny papers if you come."); her sexuality ("We are going swimming 'Diana' tonight . Diana means without any clothes on at all. Do you think it's all right to go in Diana?"); and her future in publishing ("There is a girl here named Janet Armstrong that I want you to meet. She lives in Tudor City and her father is a publisher."). A remarkable piece of juvenilia from this notable American writer best known for Strangers on a Train and her series of Tom Ripley crime novels.

Een bio-bibliografisch onderzoek', in: Het Boek, nieuwe reeks 23 (1935-1936) Bierens de Haan 2898; Ter Horst 35; Mateboer 71; Muller 550"."Het 'Astrologisch testament' kan als een vervolg beschouwd worden op de 'Spiegel der waereld'. Ook hier is ongetwijfeld Kersteman aan het woord, al treedt hij ditmaal niet in de tekst op als Meester Franciscus. Dokter Ludeman, die van Duitse kom-af is, richt zich nu tot zijn landsman Hans Patotter. Deze Patotter krijgt het testament, op voorwaarde dat hij het pas 20 jaar na Ludemans dood (1757) zal laten drukken, omdat myn Spiegel der Waereld aan Meester Franciscus ter gedagtenis nagelaten, eerst voor af dient waereldkundig gemaakt te worden. De publicatiedatum kan daarmee op 1777 worden gezet. Het 'Astrologisch testament' bestaat uit vier brieven, met daarin opgenomen een vertelling over 'De beste waereld', overduidelijk een navolging van Voltaires 'Candide'. Met de vierde, los bijgevoegde brief is iets bijzonders aan de hand: achter de laatste pagina volgt weer een titelpagina van deel vier met daarachter de oorspronkelijke slotpagina waarin nog een vijfde brief in het vooruitzicht wordt gesteld. Toen hiervan werd afgezien, door Kersteman of door de uitgever, moest dat slot herschreven worden tot een definitief eind van het verhaal over 'De beste waereld'. Doordat beide versies aanwezig zijn is goed te zien hoe Kersteman dat karwei heeft geklaard."

        George Gershwin check signed while "Porgy and Bess" was on Broadway!

      New York, NY, October 11, 1935. 6.375" x 2.75". "Partly printed check No. 3313 signed ""George Gershwin"" and dated October 11, 1935. Drawn from Gershwin's personal bank account at the National City Bank of New York, imprinted with his home address ""132 East 72nd Street"", and made payable to ""Schneider & Co."" for $8.54. Stamped endorsement verso provides payee's Manhattan address, and tine bank cancellation holes do not touch the composer's bold signature. In very fine condition, measuring 6.375"" x 2.75"". George Gershwin (1898-1937) dropped out of high school to pursue his musical career, working as a demonstration pianist for a Detroit-based piano roll publishing firm at age 15. He began arranging and composing while still a teenager. Gershwin collaborated with songwriters, lyricists and his older brother Ira (1896-1983) to compose popular Broadway musicals such as Lady, Be Good (1924), and many others. During the remainder of his short career, Gershwin composed classical, musical, and "folk opera" oeuvres, including Rhapsody in Blue (1924), An American in Paris (1928), Porgy and Bess (1935), and Hollywood music scores.Although his interest in music started later than many other musical protégés, Gershwin made up for lost time. In the mid-1920s, Gershwin traveled to Europe with the intent to study intensively under more well-established musicians, but on several occasions, he was pointedly turned away. Ultimately, Gershwin did forge his own distinct musical language. Gershwin once said, "true music must reflect the thought and aspirations of the people and the time. My people are Americans. My time is today."Gershwin's "folk opera" Porgy & Bess had opened on Broadway to rave reviews the day before Gershwin signed this check, on October 10, 1935. The musical ran for 124 performances until closing in January 25, 1936. Theatre critic Brooks Atkinson's New York Times opening night review was entitled ""Dramatic Values of Community Legend Gloriously Transposed in New Form With Fine Regard for Its Verities,"" while Times music critic Olin Downes's headline was ""Exotic Richness of Negro Music and Color of Charleston, S.C., Admirably Conveyed in Score of Catfish Row Tragedy"".

His experiences during numerous visits to the tribe in the years following the First World War are recounted in the present work. Inhabiting the region of northern Arabia, the Ruala prove to be fierce hosts, and Raswan records instances of skirmishes between marauding bands, alongside enjoyment of pursuits such as falconry. The majority of plates depict horses and camels, at work and rest and being cared for. The table lists Arabian Horses of "known" ('asil') descent in both Arabic and English transliteration. Carl Reinhard Raswan (1893-1966), born Carl Reinhard Schmidt was the scholar of Arabian bloodlines, he also published the Raswan Index, an extensive compilation of Arabian horse pedigrees and strain information. He advocated tolerance and understanding of Bedouin ways of life and culture in Arabia. Raswan's life in Arabia and the US is definitely worth a full-length biography.

      [Peiping].: Peiyang Press.. (circa1934).. Coloured folding plan of Peking with original envelope. 60 x 50cm. A few neat repairs at folds, two panels evenly browned on reverse. A very good copy of a scarce pictorial plan with its envelope. This delightful and scarce pictorial map of Peking with landmarks and streets in romanised Chinese, with occasional Chinese characters, is surprisingly scarce. Although apparently issued in several editions in the 1920s and 30s, it appears relatively infrequently on the market. The divisions of the Legation District are indicated by their flags - this edition shows the German Legation by use of the black, white and red bands of the German flag. This flag which was no longer used after 1935 helps date this edition. Other landmarks and attractions shown included theatres, foreign shopping area adjacent to the legations quarter, Liu Li Chang Curio District, the racecourse, the many city gates etc. .
