        The Evolution of the Tank, A Record of Royal Naval Air Service Caterpillar Experiments.

      London: Hutchinson, 1937.. INSCRIBED FIRST EDITION. Octavo, pp.352 [16]. With 61 b/w illustrations including frontispiece. In publisher's blue cloth with gilt titles to spine. INSCRIBED by the author to verso of front free end-paper: 'With every possible good wish, 6.8.39 // To // Michael J. W. Benn // Your father has been for many years / a much valued colleague of mine / both in the Royal Naval Air Service / and in the House of Commons. I / have admired very much his great / activity and all the hard work he / has done for his country during the / last twenty five years. // He tells me you have a creative mind. / May I urge you to develop it all you / can, because those who have this gift / are scarce. // This book will indicate to you / how good seed well sown may / induce a Bumper Harvest - and / the satisfaction which comes to the sower / that none can remove. Murray F. Sueter, Rear-Admiral / House of Commons.' Slight reading lean; spine lightly sunned, with light shelf-wear. Good overall, with a superb association. Michael Julius Wedgwood Benn (1921-1944) was the eldest son of Air Commodore William Wedgwood Benn, 1st Viscount Stansgate - distinguished flight officer and politician, and father of Labour politician Tony Benn. Having joined the Royal Air Force during the Second World War with his younger brother Tony, Michael was tragically killed when his Mosquito malfunctioned and crashed near Chichester in 1944. The book itself tells the story of the genesis of the tank, constituting the first word on the matter from the man who directed the initial project. Gestating at first as an armoured car for the Royal Naval Air Service, the tank was first referred to as a caterpillar landship.

[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]
