        Cup of Gold.

      NY, Covici Friede, 1936 - NY, Covici Friede, 1936, first edition thus, dust jacket. Hardcover. This is commonly refered to as the first edition, second issue, with a new preface by Lewis Gannett and with a different title page, binding, and dust jacket design, with the misspelling (Covici Freide) blacked out on the jacket spine with the proper spelling (Covici Friede) printed above and with no mention of Steinbeck as the author of Of Mice and Men on the front jacket panel, the Goldstone & Payne bibliography of Steinbeck errs in its suggestion that this book came from unbound sheets of the first edition by McBride in 1929, recent scholarship by Phil Ralls in his Steinbeck Firsts shows that this is an entirely new printing, making it truly the second edition, Covici had promised Steinbeck that he would keep his earlier books in print, he used photo-offset plates made from the McBride first edition to make his own printing which makes this book the true second edition and not the first edition, second issue, Ralls shows that Lawrence Clark Powell actually makes this point in the April 17, 1937 issue of "Publisher's Weekly," a physical examination of the McBride first edition and this book shows, for example, that there are different widths of the text blocks, the McBride being 28 mm wide while this true second edition measures 33 mm, see Goldstone & Payne A1b, Morrow 2, this specific copy is a Family Copy that belonged to his sister, Elizabeth Ainsworth with her bookplate to the front free endpaper, it was part of the family collection that was auctioned a few years ago, laid in loosely is a manuscript note (probably in his sister's hand) stating "First novel/written when John/was just past 20/years old,". Very good. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Alice's Adventures Under Ground

      [Privately printed by Max Jaffe, Vienna, for Eldridge Johnson,, 1936]. Octavo. Original limp green morocco, double gilt rules, titles in gilt on front cover, yellow endpapers, gilt edges, with original glassine (spine defective); in original green card slipcase. Collotype facsimile reproducing manuscript text and 37 illustrations by the author, 14 full-page; mounted photograph of Alice Liddell at foot of last page, with loose folded overslip. With additional material loosely inserted: (a) a photograph of Mrs Hargreaves (Alice Liddell) with her grandchild, with pencilled annotation on the back in Johnson's autograph; (b) typed letter signed from Alice Liddell's son, Captain Caryl Hargreaves, to Eldridge Johnson, 1 page, dated 6 April 1933, thanking Johnson for the gift of a book, and relaying his mother's greetings; (c) offprint article, Swan, Bradford F., "Auctioning 'Alice'", from The Providence Journal, 4 April 1946, 8pp. wire-stitched in printed wrappers. A rare facsimile of Carroll's original manuscript of Alice's Adventures under Ground, privately printed for Eldridge Reeves Johnson (1867-1945), who bought the manuscript from Dr Rosenbach in 1928. Johnson had made his fortune as co-founder of the Victor Talking Machine Company. The exact edition size is not recorded, though it is likely to have been 50 copies only for private distribution. From the nature of the additional inserted material, this would appear to be a copy retained by Johnson's family. "It is not too extravagant to say that this production is as near perfection as is possible for a printed facsimile. It has been said that if this facsimile is put beside the original, the only way that they may be distinguished is that the facsimile is in better condition" (Selwyn Goodacre & Denis Crutch, Jabberwocky, 1978).

      Little, Brown and Company, Boston 1936 - 298 pages. Small octavo (7 1/2" x 5 1/4") issued in green cloth with dark green lettering to cover and spine. (First's January 2003 pg 45) First American edition. The Luck of the Bodkins first published in the United Kingdom on October 11, 1935 by Herbert Jenkins, and in the United States on January 3, 1936 by Little, Brown and Company. The two editions are significantly different, though the plot remains the same. The novel was serialised in Passing Show magazine (UK) from 21 September to 23 November 1935, and this version was published as the UK edition. For its US magazine appearance, in the Red Book, between August 1935 and January 1936, Wodehouse re-wrote the story, reducing its length, and this became the US book edition. The story concerns the complicated love life of amiable young Drone Monty Bodkin, the nephew of Sir Gregory Parsloe-Parsloe, who had previously appeared in Heavy Weather (1933), when he was employed as the latest in the long line of Lord Emsworth's secretaries. The plot of The Luck of the Bodkins continues into Pearls, Girls and Monty Bodkin (1972), in which Monty, the object of his affections, hockey-playing Gertrude Butterwick, and movie-mogul Ivor Llewellyn all return. Condition: Some light foxing to fore edge pages, points lightly rubbed. Jacket with some closed edge tears, spine ends lightly chipped with some closed tears, spine sunned else a very good copy in an about very good jacket. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

A fine and very handsome set, internally bright and fresh, the cloth and bindings in very pleasing condition with only extremely slight mellowing at the spine panels. ONE OF THE GREATEST WORKS OF TRAVEL EVER WRITTEN IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE. ARABIA DESERTA is perhaps one of the best-known classics of exploration and travel. Few writers of any genre have worked such magic or mischief on the English language as Doughty. He disapproved of Victorian style, and mingled his own with Chaucerian and Elizabethan English and Arabic.<br> But whatever the style, the result is quite possibly the finest book on Arabia ever written. We will let another Arabist, Lawrence, speak on Doughty&#39;s behalf: "I have talked the book over with many travellers, and we are agreed that here you have all the desert, its hills and plains, the lava fields, the villages, the tents, the men and animals. They are told of to the life, with words and phrases fitted to them so perfectly that one cannot dissociate them in memory. It is the true Arabia, the land with its smells and dirt, as well as its nobility and freedom. There is no sentiment, nothing merely picturesque, that most common failing of oriental travel-books. Doughty&#39;s completeness is devastating. There is nothing we would take away, little we could add. He took all Arabia for his province, and has left to his successors only the poor part of specialists. We may write books on parts of the desert or some of the history of it; but there can never be another picture of the whole, in our time, because here it is all said..." (- from the Introduction).
