        The Hobbit, First Ten Impressions with Original Jackets

      George Allen and Unwin, London 1937 - Also available with our finer 1st/1st Hobbit for £85,000 George Allen & Unwin. Perhaps the most unique offering to Tolkien book collectors ever: the first 10 impressions of The Hobbit, all with original matching jackets. (Unused previous impression jackets were often sold on the next impression in some cases. These are all matching impression books and jackets). While all ten may all be together in a private collection, this is the first time we are aware they have been available for sale as a single lot. It took more than ten years of painstaking effort to collect them all. The first edition alone could cost as much as this whole collection in near fine condition or signed. From time to time the individual impressions come up for sale with jackets, but even later impressions are nowrare with the original unrestored jackets. None of these jackets have any restoration and remain in the charming original state. It’s not always understood by new collectors the valueis more in the jackets than the book, as the jacket are more scarce due to wear, loss and handling. Each book and jacket impression is unique; different ads on the flap, prices, impressions and text changes and corrections. The condition of each also makes this a unique collection as we beleive these are the best condition example of each of the first ten printings as the jackets have been upgraded to better quality examples over time. These were children’s books and the jackets suffered wear and tear even when the books were new, but over the years the jackt paper has become brittle and delicate with age. Even with gentle handling they suffer furtherdamage each time with small chips falling off. Some have closed tears, tears to cover seams or detached and in section in some cases, but this isn’t evident in the protective mylar. All jackets havetattering to spine ends, some paper loss, chips and scuffs to varying degree.Some are better than others as the paper was changed. The early impressions have some paper loss inparticular, but this also makes them more affordable. Many have faded/darkening to the spine colours. All are good to very good, near fine in some cases. All original jackets with no restoration. We can offer a lightly restored jacket and 1st edition book with only conservation restoration for the 1st/1st Hobbit for an upcharge of £20,000. The books are in very good condition considering they are welllove and read often. Some have slight lean and gift inscriptions, some of the middleimpressions have "ghosting" on the book spine/covers where the white of the image is burnedon the spine/book cover from the sun. All are complete, bindings tight, noserious stains, marks or damage. Thesecomprise first and second editions, but are commonly refer to the overallimpression in printing order 1st thru 10th. Up to the 3rdedition 1966 is considered scarce so there are three more books to complete the2nd editions. However we stopped at 10 is a nice round number! These ten books are: 1937 1st Edition/ 1st Impression. 19371st/2nd. 1942 1st/3rd. 1946 1st/4th.1951 2nd Edition/ 1st impression, 5th overallimpression. 1954 2nd/2nd,6th. 1955 2nd/3rd, 7th. 1956 2nd4th,8th. 1957 2nd/5th, 9th and finally 19582nd/6th, 10 overall impression.

        IN PARENTHESIS seinnyessit e gledyf ym penn mameu

      Faber 1937 - First edition. Original buff cloth printed in blue on the spine, in grey printed dustwrapper. Author's presentation copy, inscribed on the title to Eric Gill's brother, Evan, "David Jones for Evan Gill July 29th 1964". With the author's corrections to the Welsh on the dedication page. A near fine copy with Gill's bookplate to the front pastedown, and a contemporary cutting tipped in to the front blank announcing this book as the winner of the Hawthornden prize, in a very good dustwrapper indeed which shows a little wear to the head of the spine but is generally clean and crisp. Three black and white plates, two reproductions of designs for etchings and one map, all by the author. The author's first book and most celebrated work, which takes the form of an epic prose poem set in the first world war, based on the author's own experiences in the trenches. It was ten years in the making and was eventually helped to publication by T.S. Eliot, who hailed the book as "a work of genius". It won the 1938 Hawthornden prize. "This work of a poet-painter has its every word chiselled out of experience, and it is probably the World War I monument most likely to survive." - Stephen Spender (review in the NY Times). David Jones began his long association with the Gill family in 1922, when he became an early pupil of Eric Gill and was briefly engaged to Gill's daughter, Petra, shortly afterwards. In Parenthesis was itself printed by Gill's printing firm Hague and Gill. Jones will have known Evan through Eric and helped him with his bibliography of his brother's work.

        3 autograph letters signed ("Cecil"). Various places, 1937 to 1963.

      1937. (Large) 4to. Altogether (1½+2+2=) 5½ pp. on 4 ff. With one autogr. envelope. To the American film director George Cukor (1899-1983) whom Beaton met in the 1930s, and most famously worked with him on the 1964 musical "My Fair Lady" for which Beaton won an Academy Award for Best Art Direction and Costume Design. The earliest letter to Cukor reveals Beaton's desire to work in Hollywood and even gives a short resume of his theatrical work; the latest letter to Cukor is written at the end of Beaton's work on "My Fair Lady", and references the trouble on the set: "My contract expires next Friday. I am hoping that Mrs. Higgins' set will be finished in a very few days. Is there anything else you would like me to do as I am quite anxious to get back to where I belong - particularly in view of the unhappiness of the last weeks. I would like to thank you for all the brunches & entertainment at your house & for the many kindnesses you showed me until things went wrong between us [...]". - From the Estate of Charles Williamson and Tucker Fleming. - Each letter on stationery with printed letterhead, including one by Warner Bros.

        Autograph letter signed ("Freud"). Vienna, 10. IX. 1937.

      1937. Folio. 2 pp. Addenda. To Dr R. L. Worrall, in German, thanking him for his interesting letter, from which he has learned much, and answering some of the points raised: "I know that my comments on Marxism are no evidence either of a thorough knowledge or a correct understanding of the writings of Marx and Engels. I have learnt since - very much to my satisfaction - that both in no way denied the influence of ideas and superego-structures. That invalidates the main contrast between Marxism and psycho-analysis which I had believed to exist. As to the 'dialectic', I am no clearer, even after your letter./ For the evidence of the hypothesis of the human primal horde I must refer you to my sources, Darwin and Atkinson. I have no other arguments than theirs. Naturally I accepted from psycho-analytical experience and what it would have led one to expect"; adding that "I do not quite grasp the bearing of your question about the nature of Id. As far as I understand it I should answer in the affirmative" (translation by Ernest Jones). - Worrall had written to Freud querying his statement in New Introductory Lectures that Marxism attributes social change solely to economic forces, whereas he believed Marx and Engels took full account of social history and psychological factors; he also raised the subject of Hegel's Absolute Ideal, and enquired whether Freud's concept of an 'old man of the tribe' relationship in prehistory, as giving rise to the Oedipus Complex, derived from Atkinson's interpretation of Darwin - and specifically if the mental qualities characteristic of the Id are of prehuman rather than of human origin (see the copy of Worrall's letter to Ernest Jones, included along with Jones's translation; also included is correspondence between Worrall and K. R. Eissler of the Sigmund Freud Archives, New York). When he wrote this letter, Freud was already suffering from the cancer that was to kill him: he tells Worrall that his letter "deserve[s] a comprehensive answer" but explains that "to do that by hand would be too great an effort for my eighty-one years" and that "a personal discussion would be a pleasure for me". Six months later, Austria was absorbed into the German Reich, and three months after that Freud escaped to England, where he was to die in September 1939. - On headed paper ("Prof. Dr. Freud"); smudge to ink, tape-stains at edges especially overleaf, weak at fold.

        Typescript with autograph dedication signed. London, 19. I. 1937.

      1937. 4to. 11 pp. Original typescript with some autograph corrections, about the personality and works of the recently deceased poet Anna de Noailles (b. 1876): [...] In the summer of 1913, Madame Edmond de Polignac, that great Renaissance Princess of the Arts, gave me a little yellow volume of poems entitled 'Les Vivants et les Morts'. On the cover she has scribbled a line from Anna - 'Schumann, ciel d'Octobre où volent des cigognes''. An officer on short leave from Egypt has no time for reading. With his eye fixed on the calendar and his ear frightened by the ticking of the clock, he can hardly take in a picture or listen through a Fugue, for 'At my back I always hear | Time's winged chariot hurrying near'. Besides this I will make bold to confess to you that in 1913 I had never heard of the Comtesse Anna de Noailles, as a poet or even as a person. I opened the volume one morning on my return to Egypt as the Austrian Lloyd steamer glided past the jagged mountains of Crete, and did not put it down until, oblivious of time, I had turned the last page [...]". - Roland Storrs served posts as British Governor in Jerusalem, North Rhodesia, and Cyprus. "T. E. Lawrence commented in 'The Seven Pillars of Wisdom': 'The first of all of us was Ronald Storrs, Oriental Secretary of the Residency, the most brilliant Englishman in the Near East, and subtly efficient, despite his diversion of energy in love of music and letters, of sculpture, painting, of whatever was beautiful in the world's fruit [...] Storrs was always first, and the great man among us"' (Wikipedia). He published his Memoirs in 1937. - Slight traces of handling, otherwise fine.
