        The Hobbit or There and Back Again

      London: George Allen & Unwin Ltd, , 1937. Octavo. Original green cloth, spine and covers blocked in dark blue, top edge green, map endpapers printed in black and red. With the dust jacket. Colour frontispiece, 4 full-page plates from drawings by the author (3 in colour, one monochrome: "Mirkwood"), 8 full-page line drawings. Jacket spine lightly toned, light scuff to top corner of front panel, a few minor nicks and chips, binding spine rolled, a few pale brown marks to covers. A very good copy in a remarkably well-preserved dust jacket. First edition, second impression, but the first to include coloured versions of four of Tolkiien's illustrations. "The second impression consisted of 2,300 copies printed in December? 1937... [although] 423 copies in sheets in the warehouse of the binder Key & Whiting were destroyed in the bombing of London on 7 November 1940... [The coloured versions of the illustrations] had been commissioned for their first American edition, and were in the American publisher's hands when Allen & Unwin decided to include them in the second impression. The original art was called back for reproduction in Britain, then returned across the Atlantic" (Hammond & Anderson p. 15). The first edition was published on 21 September 1937 and the first impression of 1,500 copies was sold out by December. A lovely copy.

        Il V Residente del Comando Settore Occidentale Ferrovia inviato straordinario ad Ada per permute terreni Opera Nazionale Combattenti Azienda Agraria di Bisciolftù presenta: "Cose d'Etiopia viste dalla groppa del suo muletto"

      1937. Albo di 247 fotografie originali in b.n. dell'Etiopia, non firmate, scattate nel 1937 dal V° Residente Inviato Straordinario ad Ada, G. Dolcetti. In-4° oblungo (258x348mm), legatura in tutta tela con illustrazione fotografica applicata con titolazione in blu e in bianco e cordino laterale. Il "documentario", come è definito dall'autore, costituisce un'eccezionale fonte di informazioni sull'Etiopia del tempo e consta di 95 pagine e di 247 fotografie "in vari formati, tutte con relative didascalie - e di 3 estratti da Relazioni del V Residente al Comando Settore". Le fotografie sono applicate (più per pagina) su cartoncino grigio, recano in calce didascalie esplicative dattiloscritte e sono tutte protette da velina; precede una rivestitura di cellophan applicata per non sciupare l'album durante il trasporto: "Alla consegna dell'album alla persona destinata - la copertina può esser tolta... Per sfogliare la raccolta con un certo interesse occorrono esattamente 40 (quaranta) minuti d'orologio. Sfogliando l'album si prega vivamente di accompagnare con cura sul lato sinistro i fogli velini intermedi". Le fotografie costituiscono una straordinaria documentazione sulle popolazioni locali, gli usi e costumi, la presenza coloniale italiana, la topografia del territorio, l'economia e l'agricoltura autoctone. La prima parte documenta l'arrivo in loco di un geometra dell'Ispettorato Generale Agrario, che vi raggiunse il Centurione del Comando Settore Occidentale Ferrovia "inviato straordinario ad Ada per le permute di terreni all'Opera Nazionale Combattenti". Seguono le seguenti sezioni: La tenuta Babitcheff, il noto Fitaurari etiopico di nazionalità russa; Il Lago di Biscioftù a poche centinaia di metri dal villaggio d'Adua; Il Lago di Hora-Arsodi a 1 Km circa dal villaggio di Ada; Il Lago di Biscioftì-Guda a 3 Km circa dal villaggio di Ada; Scene agresti di questa nostra terra d'Africa. Le puntuali didascalie che contrappuntano le immagini illustrano esaustivamente l'itinerario del Residente Inviato Straordinario e del suo seguito, fornendo un resoconto vivissimo anche sotto il prospetto narrativo. Fine precipuo della missione, compiuta nel pieno del periodo delle "grandi pioggie", era di compiere accertamenti, misurazioni e valutazioni del totale comprensorio da assegnarsi all'Opera Nazionale Combattenti. L'ultimo estratto di relazione ufficiale documenta puntualmente da quante persone era composta la spedizione e il "bilancio" dell'incarico politico e civile svolto dal Centurione del Comando Settore Occidentale Ferrovia: ammende inflitte, fustigazioni, spese di gestione, spese di carattere politico, reclami, etc., valutando "eccellente sotto ogni rapporto" la situazione politica. I funzionari consegnarono all'Opera Nazionale Combattenti e per essa all'Azienda Agraria di Biscioftù il totale comprensorio di 5.311 ettari. Italiano

        And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street

      New York: The Vanguard Press, 1937. Hardcover. Good +. A magnificent Association copy of the 1937 true 1st edition (Younger & Hirsch, pgs. 14-15) of Dr. Seuss's first published children's book. THIS COPY IS NOT ONLY INSCRIBED BY DR. SEUSS (IN A CLEARLY VERY EARLY HAND) BUT, PERHAPS JUST AS SIGNIFICANTLY, IS ALSO INSCRIBED BY MIKE MCCLINTOCK, THE KEY FIGURE IN THE ORIGINAL PUBLICATION OF THE BOOK. MCCLINTOCK WAS NOT ONLY THE BOOK'S EDITOR --AND ITS EARLIEST CHAMPION-- BUT WAS ALSO THE HUSBAND OF HELENE MCCLINTOCK (TO WHOM THE BOOK WAS DEDICATED) AND THE REAL-LIFE FATHER OF "MARCO" MCCLINTOCK, THE LITTLE BOY AFTER WHOM DR. SEUSS NAMED THE MAIN CHARACTER. IN FACT, IN HIS INSCRIPTION ON THE VERSO OF THE FRONT FREE ENDPAPER, JUST BELOW DR. SEUSS'S, MCCLINTOCK SIGNS "DITTO--MIKE MCCLINTOCK (MARCO'S FATHER)". TO QUOTE A PASSAGE FROM "9 THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT DR. SEUSS", "A CHANCE SIDEWALK ENCOUNTER LED TO DR. SEUSS'S FIRST CHILDREN'S BOOK. AFTER A 27TH PUBLISHER REJECTED HIS FIRST MANUSCRIPT, DR. SEUSS WALKED DEJECTEDLY ALONG THE SIDEWALKS OF NEW YORK, PLANNING TO BURN THE BOOK IN HIS APARTMENT INCINERATOR. ON MADISON AVENURE, HOWEVER, HE BUMPED INTO DARTMOUTH FRIEND MIKE MCCLINTOCK, WHO THAT VERY MORNING HAD STARTED A JOB AS AN EDITOR IN THE VANGUARD PRESS CHILDREN'S SECTION. WITHIN HOURS, THE MEN SIGNED A CONTRACT, AND IN 1937 VANGUARD PRESS PUBLISHED 'AND TO THINK THAT I SAW IT ON MULBERRY STREET', WHICH LAUNCHED THE EXTRAORDINARY LITERARY CAREER OF DR. SEUSS. 'IF I HAD BEEN GOING DOWN THE OTHER SIDE OF MADISON AVENUE, I'D BE IN THE DRY-CLEANING BUSINESS TODAY', HE SAID LATER." This remarkable Association copy is lacking its dustjacket and does show light soiling (especially at the rear panel), a bit of wear along the edges and clear tape evenly reinforcing the spine. There's also pencil to the copyright page and light creasing along the lower-edges of the pages. Still though, it's solidly Good+ to VG- and is sturdy and very presentable. And, given the incredible story behind the book's publication, this is historically a very important, one-of-a-kind copy.

        English Homes

      Country Life [and others], London & New York 1937 - (15 3/8 x 10 5/8 inches). Numerous illustrations, some full-page. Publisher's blue cloth, upper covers and spines lettered in gilt (usual uneven fading, some wear) A complete set of this unparalleled record of the larger domestic architecture of England from the Norman invasion to the beginning of the Regency period (1066-1820). By the early 1920s, the photographic archives of Country Life magazine offered an outstanding range of images of the exteriors and interiors of many of the most important houses in England. Drawing on this resource, Tipping gives a history of most of the architecturally important homes and includes over 4,600 illustrations. This record is particularly valuable as a large number of photographic images of furnished interiors are given of houses that have since been demolished. In reviewing the issue of volume I, The Professional Architectural Monthly commented on the scope and ambitions of the series: "This volume forms, it might be said, the undercroft on which the upper stories of English architectural development are reared. In it are laid the bases of the evolutionary history of house-planning, designing, and decorating in the land throughout all succeeding phases of both Gothic and Renaissance styles. But while the main purpose is architectural, here as throughout the series, the human element is kept well to the fore by narration of the home and public life of the owners of the various castles and manor-houses that are carefully described and profusely illustrated" (July, 1921). The individual volumes are as follows: Period I, vol.I. Norman and Plantagenet (1066-1485). First printing, 1921. Period II, vol.I. Early Tudor (1485-1558). Second edition, 1929. Periods I & II vol. II, Mediaeval & Early Tudor (1066-1558). First printing, 1937. Period III, vol.I. Late Tudor & Early Stuart (1558-1649). First printing, 1922. Period III, vol.II. Late Tudor & Early Stuart (1558-1649). First printing, 1927. Period IV, vol.I. Late Stuart (1649-1714). Second printing, 1929. Period IV, vol.II. The work of Sir John Vanbrugh and his school (1699-1736). First printing, 1928. Period V, vol.I. Early Georgian (1714-1760). First printing, 1921. Period VI, vol.I. Late Georgian (1760-1820). First printing, 1926. Published between 1921 and 1937, sets are rarely found complete and given the length of time between the publication of each volume, there is always a variety in the blue binding cloth used, particularly with the final published volume (Periods I & II vol. II). A foundation text for the study of English domestic architecture. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Phineas Kahn: Portrait of an Immigrant

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1937 - First Edition. Very good in dust jacket. Presentation copy; inscribed by the author in the year of publication. Blumenfeld was a mysterious figure, whose claim to being Jewish remains dubious (his family was Sicilian, at least immediately). However, one might ask who would claim that who was not? Okay, perhaps some might, but to have done so at that period might not have been the most advisable time to do so. Steven Berkoff, the outspoken English actor, wrote an introduction for the novelÕs 1988 re-issue. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Our Wandering Continents.

      Edinburgh: Oliver and Boyd,, 1937. An Hypothesis of Continental Drifting. Octavo. Original red cloth over flexible boards, spine lettered in gilt, blind frame to front board. With the dust jacket. 48 diagrams to the text, 1 folding. Spine gently rolled, extremities lightly bumped. A very good copy in the toned and slightly rubbed dust jacket with a few nicks at spine-ends and a short closed tear to the head of the front panel. First edition, first impression of "one of the most important geological books of the twentieth century" (Nisbet, Living Earth, p. 147). Du Toit, a South African geologist, presented firm evidence from palaeontology, sedimentology, glaciation and rock types in order to develop Alfred Wegener's still-controversial theory of continental drift, originally proposed in 1912. Du Toit notably contrasted the glacial deposits of Gondwana with coal deposits of the same age found in the continents of the Northern Hemisphere. "To resolve this apparent climatological paradox, he moved the Gondwana continents together such that the coal deposits were located at the equator. He named this northern landmass Laurasia. It consisted of present-day North America, Greenland, Europe, and Asia (except for India, which was part of Gondwana)" (Monroe and Wicander, eds, The Changing Earth, p. 29).
