        Two Boys go Sailing. Illustrated by Brigid Ganly.

      London, J.M.Dent & Sons Ltd. 1936 - First Edition. 8°. Frontispiece - Illustration, VIII, 246 pages with a (partly fictitious) map of Roaringwater Bay on the pastedown and endpaper and 12 illustrations throughout the book. Original, illustrated Hardcover. Excellent condition of this scarce book with only minor signs of external wear to the binding. This is one of the rarest publications on West Cork, Baltimore and Roaringwater Bay. Edward Conor Marshall O'Brien (3 November 1880 – 18 April 1952) was an intellectual, Irish aristocrat, republican, nationalist, pioneer in modern maritime theory, owner and captain of one of the first boats to sail under the tri-colour of the Irish Free State, during his circumnavigation in the Saoirse. He was a grandson of the Fenian William Smith O'Brien. Reputedly this was the first small boat to sail around Cape Horn. This is slightly unfair to Joshua Slocum, the Bostonian, who was the first single-handed yachtsman to successfully pass this way (in 1895) although in the end, extreme weather forced him to use some of the inshore routes between the channels and islands and it is believed he may not have actually passed outside the Horn proper. Given the scale of Slocum's achievement it might be considered unfair to deprive him of the honour! Although it was nearly 30 years later, a strict definition of "the first small boat to sail around outside Cape Horn" could indeed cover the 42-foot (13 m) yacht Saoirse, sailed by Conor O'Brien with three hands, who rounded it during a circumnavigation of the world between 1923 and 1925 It was the first boat flying the Irish tri-colour to enter many of the world's ports and harbours. He was a ship builder/designer (notable boats include the Saoirse and AK Ilen ), gun runner for the Irish Volunteers during the war of independence in Ireland, captain of a ship sailing in the merchant navy during WWII.

        Coeurs volants" Cahiers d'art. 11e annà e, no. 1-2. L'objet

      Paris: Editions Cahiers d'Art, 1936 - The rarest of issues of Zervos' great periodical in a rather poor copy. 94 splendid plates & ills. (3 color). iv + 68 pp. Stiff paper covers. 32 x 24.5 cm. The subtitle promises (and delivers) "Objets mathà matique. Objets naturels. Objets sauvages. Objets trouvà s. Objets irrationnels. Objets ready made. Objets interprà tà s. Objets incorporà s. Objets mobiles." Duchamp designed the famous cover, "Coeurs volants" with its nested hearts in vibrating red and blue especially for this issue. Among the many other artists illustrated are Man Ray (12 rich black-and-white photos in one article and many in others), Magritte, Bellmer, Giacometti, Picasso, Calder, Ernst, and Meret Oppenheim's "Fur-lined teacup," nearly a year before its startling appearance at MoMA in the show "Fantastic art, Dada, and Surrealism." **The condition of this copy leaves much to be desired. It is disbound, with the covers detached and only the top end of the spine present bearing the identification "1936 No. 1-2." The front cover is dulled, faded near the top and spine edge, and with several spots and other small defects (see photo). The rear cover is better but faded at the spine and creased diagonally at the bottom. There are a few small turned upper corners in the first few pages. The latter half has slight rippling from damp, but no pages are stuck or torn. Vanishingly and deservedly rare in any condition, and priced accordingly. **Free domestic or international shipping with direct order.

        Work for the Winter: More or Less for Christmas

      privately printed for the author n.d.[1936], n.p. - First edition, sole impression - number of copies unknown. Original cream wrappers printed in black. A selection of poems by Vanessa and Clive Bell's son - somewhat in the same vein as the latter's "Ad Familiares" (1918) - done up as a Christmas greeting. Five of the poems were published the following year by the Hogarth Press as "Work For The Winter and Other Poems" with one of them, `The River Flows' having been revised. Vanessa Bell's copy with her initials in pencil (and a small, gold stick-on star) to the upper wrapper. Julian Bell volunteered as an ambulance driver during the Spanish Civil War and died from shrapnel wounds a month after his arrival. His mother's hair reportedly turned white overnight when she received the news. Virginia Woolf later wrote: "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." That decision appears to have been a mistake every bit as bad as Bell's reasons for going to Spain, which included: " . . . the usefulness of war experience in the future and the prestige one would gain in literature and - even more - Left politics." Two copies are located in UK libraries - the British Library and The National Trust (Sissinghurst) - and eight in North America. Some browning and soiling including some light water-staining to edges of upper wrapper but a very good copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        A Map and History of Peiping; formerly known as Peking; capital of provinces, princedoms and kingdoms since 1121 B.C.; in 1264 A.D. the capital of the Mongol Empire of Kublai Khan; made the capital of the Ming Empire through the Ming and Ching Dynasties; and now a city which will live long in the memory of man as one of the greatest the world has ever known.

      1936 - Beijing: Peiyang Press, 1936. Colour-printed wood-engraving. Sheet 860 x 755mm. Original folds reinforced on verso, laid on fine canvas. Very interesting pictorial map of Beijing, drawn by an American officer who was a military attaché in China during the 1930s and published the year before the official start of the Second Sino-Japanese War. It features vignettes of Chinese history from 1100 BC to 1927 as well as modern tourist attractions including golf and race courses. This is an early state: the flag of the German legation is the short-lived national flag used 1933-5 (black/white/red horizontal stripes), replaced by the Nazi flag with the swastica on most examples on this map. Frank Dorn (1901-81) was a graduate of West Point (where he picked up the life-long nickname of 'Pinky'), before being posted to Beijing in 1934 to help gather intelligence on Japanese aggression. He immersed himself in the language and culture of the city, researching the Forbidden City and collecting antiquities. When war with Japan broke out Dorn became chief-of-staff to L.t General Joseph Stilwell, with a rank of Colonel. At one point relations between the Americans and the leader of the Chinese Kuomintang, Chiang Kai-shek, were so bad that Dorn was ordered to prepare a plan to assassinate him. Although Dorn suggested giving Chiang a faulty parachute and sabotaging his plane authorisation was never given. After his retirement as Brigadier General in 1953 Dorn wrote a number of books including 'The Sino-Japanese War, 1937-41', 1974. BAGBY: The Eagle-Dragon Alliance, 1992.

The rear cover is better but faded at the spine and creased diagonally at the bottom. There are a few small turned upper corners in the first few pages. The latter half has slight rippling from damp, but no pages are stuck or torn. Vanishingly and deservedly rare in any condition, and priced accordingly.**Free domestic or international shipping with direct order.

        The Romance of El Camino Real, With Authentic Kaloprints Attesting to the Period of Construction (1769-1830), The Period of Depletion (1835-), and Partial Preservation of the Historic California Missions

      Los Angeles, CA:: Kaloprint Corporation,, 1936. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. LIMITED EDITION of 1,000 copies. 4to. 13 3/8 x 10 1/2 inches. Unpaginated. [122] pp. Registration and Dedication Pages left blank, 2 vignettes on the title page, list of the missions by date of dedication, what follows are a series of 25 openings with descriptive text on the versos, tissue guards, and a Kaloprint image on the rectos (text facing illustration) of Father Serra, the mission buildings, manuscript documents, and Indian survivors of the missions; text clean, unmarked. Blind- and gilt-stamped brown leather, this copy has been neatly re-backed with brown cloth that matches the leather; binding square and tight. Laid in are 3 ephemeral pieces from the Bureau, including a typed note on Bureau letterhead telling how to have an ancestor's portrait mounted on the dedication page, a small bi-fold "Value Received" which details the benefits of membership in the Bureau, and a certificate that states that Sonya Carlson Doud, is a sustaining 5-year member of the Bureau. SCARCE. Very Good. The California Landmarks and Historical Records Bureau, Inc. was incorporated in 1931 as a California non-profit organization. Its purpose was to gain legislative and public support to preserve "the romance" of California by passing laws for historic preservation, and marking of historic landmarks. It hired newspapermen Sherman Danby (who signed Sonya Doud's certificate of membership) and Frederic N. Shovey as Director and Publicity Directors, respectively. It was headquartered in Sacramento, but its Southern California Office was in the Douglas Building in Los Angeles; it began by organizing prominent women in Southern California, and then made an organizing tour of the state in 1932. One of its benefits of membership is this volume extolling the Romance of El Camino Real, with its pictures of the California Missions. The Bureau actually assumed the care of several missions, and in 1933 was able to secure Federal Assistance in reconstructing certain missions when the National Director of Work Relief and Special Projects, Jacob Baker, authorized relief labor to be used in Mission reconstruction. See: The San Bernardino Sun, September 13, 1933, page 1, and The Santa Cruz Sentinel, January 22, 1933, page 5.
