         STORY OF FERDINAND

      - LEAF,MUNRO. THE STORY OF FERDINAND. NY: Viking 1936 (Sept. 1936). 8vo (7 x 9 1/2"), cloth backed pictorial boards, Fine condition in dust wrapper with $1.00 price intact. Dust wrapper spine is sunned, spine ends slightly frayed, a few closed tears but really bright and clean, VG+. First edition. THIS COPY HAS AN INSCRIPTION LEAF FACING THE TITLE. ON IT LAWSON HAS DRAWN A PICTURE OF A FIG BRANCH AND WARMLY INSCRIBED: "A BRANCH FROM THE FAVORITE CORK TREE OF FERDINAND FOR CARL LAEMMLE. MAY YOU SIT IN ITS SHADE ALL DAY AND BE VERY HAPPY [SIGNED] ROBERT LAWSON" AND ALSO SIGNED BY MUNRO LEAF. Carl Laemmel was one of the founders and first chairman of Universal Studios. Illustrated in incomparable style by Robert Lawson. One of the most popular children's books. Considered subversive in some circles because Ferdinand wanted to make love, not war, it was banned by Hitler and in Spain where it was considered a pacifist book. "It is dynamic text and no less vital picturization" (Bader p. 145). Amazingly enough, Little Brown turned down the offer to publish Ferdinand, which Viking accepted only after much persuasion! Some time later it was made into a successful Disney movie. Rare in such nice condition and rarer still with the sketch and inscription. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

         A small archive of material from the papers of Lionel Curtis, relating to his address given at the dedication of the Oxford High School memorial to T.E. Lawrence

      1936 and 1937. 1936 - Including two Churchill TLS, an unrecorded Churchill ephemeron, and an unrecorded variant of the programme for the dedication. Various sizes, various dates, all Lionel Curtis was one of the founders, with D.G. Hogarth, of The Round Table, a rather secretive quarterly review and debating circle which was to wield a certain influence over foreign policy in the early years of the twentieth century. After meeting Curtis in 1918 at the Paris Peace Conference (where Curtis was a member of the League of Nations section of the British delegation) Lawrence contributed an essay to the journal, and became a close friend and admirer. Curtis later became a fellow of All Souls and was one of Lawrence's advisers on the finances of the Subscriber's edition of Seven Pillars. The correspondence begins with a retained carbon of a TLS, dated Sept. 26 1936, from Curtis to [Robin] Buxton, who served with Lawrence in Arabia and later became his bank manager, and with Curtis an adviser on the printing of Seven Pillars, and later a trustee of Revolt in the Desert. The letter announces Curtis's success in persuading Winston Churchill to give the speech at Oxford, and asking for help in compiling a list of those who might dine together afterwards. The next item is a fine two-page TLS from Churchill to ?My dear Lionel? dated 26th September 1936, making arrangements for the speech, in which he gives instructions on how to handle its reporting by the press: ?their usual method is to cut out every third sentence, which has the effect of taking up a lot of their space, but confronting the reader with a thoroughly mutilated and vicious version. . . if you can't settle with them, nobody can? and announces the ?ill-concealed relief? with which he has given up golf. The real substance of the letter comes in the last paragraph, in which he says ?It will give me great pleasure to see some of my old friends of a quarter of a century ago. It is something anyhow to have survived such grim years. What a tragedy it is that we have not got Lawrence with us to settle up Palestine. He alone could have done it and everybody would have taken his decision.? The letter has pencil annotations, presumably by Curtis, to the effect that part of the letter is to be excerpted and forwarded to ?Dawson? The dedication ceremony took place on the 3rd of October, and on the 8th Churchill sends a 1p TLS, also on Chartwell letterhead ?I am very grateful for the delightful visit you planned for me. I enjoyed it so much, and am also content that my speech about T.E.L. was considered adequate. ?The next three items are far more trivial, but quite fun: in a retained carbon copy of a TLS from Curtis to ?Barrington Ward? Curtis asks for a copy of ?an extract from Winston Churchill's speech on Lawrence? set for a translation examination: ?Winston . . . should greatly appreciate the unintended compliment paid to him? There is a also a copy of the paper itself, which turns out to be for the ?First Public Examination. Class Paper. Latin Prose? and consists of the first two paragraphs of the published speech. The passages excised, while not quite making it a ?mutilated and vicious version? include references to the growing European crisis and, in an echo of the first letter to Curtis above, the sentence ?If things were going badly how glad one would be to see him come round the corner.? This examination paper must be very rare (it is not noted by the bibliographers of either Churchill or Lawrence) and may precede the printing of the full speech, which was achieved at an unknown date in 1937. A copy of the full text of the speech, in Proceedings at the Unveiling of the Memorial to Lawrence of Arabia (O'Brien E166, Woods D(b)50(b)) is present as well, in an unrecorded variant state, with the twelve line foreword, the John Johnson imprint, and printed on laid unwatermarked paper. Some paperclip stains, but generally good. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Beige endpapers, (x), 229 (1blank) pp including black and white frontispiece and 12 illustrations by Mary O'Neill.

The boards have been well protected by the dust jacket are clean and bright with only a little cockling to the front board. Internally, the book is clean with only very light spotting to the prelims. The inscription is dated August 1936 and we believe the recipient was Margery Allingham despite the misspelling of her name, because the book was bought in Colchester (where she died) with a number of volumes from her library containing her name including a signed limited presentation copy of 'Challenge to the Reader' from Ellery Queen to Margery Allingham. The book also has the initials M.Y.C. on the front free endpaper. Allingham's married name was Youngman Carter. We also have her next novel, Farewll Spain, similarly inscribed but with the correct spelling. The dust jacket is in original condition and without tape or other repairs. It is vg- noting the fact that it is in two pieces, split along the lower joint. It is somewhat creased and rubbed and the back panel is darkened with spots and ink marks. There is loss to the fore edge corners, chips of 1-2cm from the head of the spine and less to the foot. There are also a number of closed tears along the top and bottom edges (see images). That said, it presents far better than it sounds in the removable, clear archival jacket that now protects it. Kate O'Brien is increasingly regarded as a significant early 20th Century writer. Many of her books dealt with issues of female agency and sexuality in ways that were new and radical at the time as does this novel that concerns a young woman's experiences in Spain. Indeed this book was considered so radical that it was banned in her native Ireland. She was extremely popular in the 1930s and1940s before falling into obscurity for decades, only to be rediscovered as a key writer in the 1980s. An unusual and very scarce signed volume.

         The Southern Gates of Arabia. A Journey in the Hadhramaut.

      London: John Murray, 1936 - Octavo. Original green cloth, spine lettered in gilt, facsimile of Stark's signature to front board gilt, fore and bottom edges untrimmed. Spine gently rolled, scattered pale markings to cloth, contents slightly toned, a few trivial spots to front free endpaper. A very good copy. Title page printed in red and black, 96 plates, 2 folding maps. First edition. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author "To Mr. Guest with affectionate and grateful thanks for much help, from Freya May 1936" on the front free endpaper. Arthur Rhuvon Guest (1869–1946) was an accomplished Arabist who helped Stark with her original researches into Hadramawt history and read her book in manuscript: in the acknowledgements Stark thanks Guest "for his invaluable assistance during the writing of my book – an assistance to which such Islamic learning as appears within its pages is chiefly due". After achieving recognition with her first book The Valley of Assassins (1934), which described travels in Iraq and Iran, Stark went to Hadramawt, southern Arabia, in search of ancient trade routes, landing at Mukallah and travelling inland to Tarim via Jol, Wadi Daw'an, Khuraybah, and such ancient cities as Shibam and Sayun. She returned a celebrity, and her book, "often considered a classic of travel writing" (ODNB) was awarded the Mungo Park medal by the Royal Scottish Geographical Society. Macro 2120; Robinson, Wayward Women, pp. 28-30. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
