        ULYSSES. Signed 1/100 Copies.

      The Bodley Head, London 1936 - James Joyce. ULYSSES. Signed 1/100 Copies. London: John Lane The Bodley Head, 1936. First Edition printed in England. A fine example of this, the most beautiful edition of Ulyssses ever published, designed by Eric Gill with Homeric Bow in gilt on the cover. Quarto, blonde calf vellum board printed on mould-made paper - number 38 of only 100 copies signed by Joyce in blue/black ink on the limitations page. [Total edition 1000 copies with 900 in cloth]. With the Bodley Head's printed announcement of publication laid in; in the original patterned paper slipcase with a bit of foxing & soiling to the printed numbered paper label, showing some rubbing at the slipcase edges - near fine considering it's endemic fragility. A very nice lovely example. Joyce's biographer Richard Ellman observed, "In his earlier books Joyce forced modern literature to accept new styles, new subject matter, new kinds of plot and characterization. In his last book he forced it to accept a new area of being and a new language. What is ultimately most impressive is the sureness with which, in the midst of such technical accomplishments, he achieved his special mixture of attachment and detachment, of gaiety and lugubriousness. He was no saturnine artificer contriving devices, but one of life's celebrants, in bad circumstances cracking good jokes, foisting upon ennuis and miseries his comic vision."

        Cup of Gold

      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,".

        The Flavor of Texas, Inscribed to Frank C. Lockwood)

      Dallas, TX: Dealey and Lowe, 1936. First issue binding, First Issue Dust Jacket with tape repair on back. McVickers A5. Bound in printed cloth, original patterned and cream cloth, salmon on tan, with spine reading GTT at foot. Top of restored dust jacket has about 1" chip showing all but first three letters FLA in Flavor of Texas". a very nice long inscription: "To Frank C. Lockwood, delightful expresser of the flavor of Arizona, as a recuerdo of our first meeting, though we had known and liked each other for years. My friend, I salute you and your work. You have pioneered with the charm and perspective of art." Sincerely, Frank Dobie, Tucson, Arizona, August 2, 1938. As a bookseller I have handled dozens of nice Dobie inscriptions to his friends--this is among the nicest. Lockwood, of course, was the author of many of the finest Arizona pioneer histories. Of course, the book is eminently collectible but to read Dobie as pure pleasure as is this work from the surely apocryphal folklore regarding Sam Houston to the unique language of the working cowboy. Like most Dobie, his writing breathes with reality although when he put his mind to it, he could write academic work though such productions brought him little pleasure. It was authentic flavor Dobie wanted and this and all his works have accomplished to the delight of readers whether they be in Texas or Cambridge where he taught [fighting to keep the proper English students from stealing his Stetsons). Dykes, My Dobie Collection, p. 8 "hard to find and expensive" #11 on his rarities list. 6-Guns #602; Herd #691, One Hundred Head Cut Out of the Jeff Dykes Herd, 8. Sloan writes in her Ranching Catalogue Part 2 "References to cowboys and ranching are found throughout, and two chapters are specifically devoted to ranching history...One of Alexander Hogue's striking black-and-white illustrations shows a cowboy drinking water from a cow track, with Abe Blocker's famous quote about how he had 'drunk more water out of cow tracks than any trail driver left alive'..Dobie includes a first-rate chapter on "How Texas was Hell on Women.".

        The Grasses of Great Britain [ unique original collection of specimens]

      Salisbury [UK], 1936. Unique. Contemp. three quarter three quarter morocco. A fine copy. folio. There are 205 full page mounted specimens and mounted photographs etc.. A massive folio volume of mounted specimens of British grasses representing a life-time of work. The botanist/collector was H Goddard who was a well known authority on British flora in general and grasses in particular. He was the staff botanist for the firm of Dunns Farm Seeds in Salisbury. In 1936, after 50+ years of collecting he presented the collection to the firm. They had it bound with introductory letter press. This is the folio volume being offered here. The preliminaries of the volume contain photos and mounted press clippings from which is derived the following: ' A collection of British grasses, believed to be without equal .... It took most of his life to get it together, and two years ago it was put into a bound volume ... and presented to the firm. A foreward to it was written by Prof. R G Stapleton, director of the Welsh plant breeding station, and one of the world's authorities on grasses, who pays it and the author a high tribute. ... He says, ` in Mr. Goddard's collection they have a valubale possession which will stand for all time ... the specimens are beautifully set -up, correctly named and well arranged. Indeed it is such that could have only been brought together by a botanist of long experience, and by one with infinite patience and with a deep feeling for the beauties of nature` ' .Apart from some minor scuffing the volume is in fine condition with impeccably preserved specimens in tact. A superb and fascinating monument to scholarship, science, and natural beauty.

      NY, Covici Friede, 1936, first edition. With publisher's black paper-covered slipcase with orange spine label, this is No. 39 of just 99 copies Signed by Steinbeck, this is also the best strike novel of the 20th Century, Steinbeck's best friend and philosophical mentor, Ed Ricketts, makes his first of many appearances in a Steinbeck novel, he appears as Doc Burton, Steinbeck would use Ricketts and their shared philosophy in many other novels, this was also Steinbeck's first foray into agricultural politics through his literature which ultimately led to his writing The Grapes of Wrath, the use of another character, a communist, would lead to the untrue allegation that Steinbeck was a communist, that allegation would have negative effects on Steinbeck's life from then to the end of his life in 1968, Goldstone & Payne A5a, Morrow 43. Very good.
