        The Hobbit. or There and Back Again. Illustrated by the Author.

      London George Allen and Unwin 1937 - First edition, first issue, 8vo., frontispiece, one plate, 8 illustrations, map endpapers printed in red and black, all by the author, 2pp advertisements, fine modern binding in full crimson morocco, titles and decoration to spine gilt, raised bands, single rule to boards gilt, an elaborate onlay to the front cover imitating the scene of the frontispiece illustration: Hobbiton-across-the-Water, a smaller one to the rear cover imitating the illustration on P117; The misty mountains looking West from the Eyrie towards Goblin Gate, preserved in a custom-made slip-case. The first of Tolkien's works of fiction to be published, The Hobbit began as an amusement for the Tolkien children, and reached print rather unexpectedly, a typescript of it having been shown to the publisher by a former pupil of Tolkien's. Once published, it was an equally unexpected success and Unwin pressed Tolkien for a sequel, which grew into the Lord of the Rings trilogy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        BACKGROUND TO DANGER.

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1937., 1937. First edition. First U. S. edition. Signed by the author on the title page. Fine tight, copy in a bright dust jacket with minimal wear to spine ends and top and bottom fore-corners, and to the extremities. Ambler's second book and his first published in the U.S. Basis for the 1943 Warner Brothers motion picture directed by Raoul Walsh and screenplay by W. R. Burnett. Movie starred George Raft, Sydney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre, and Brenda Marshall. Story originally published in U.K. as UNCOMMON DANGER in 1937. Kenton's career as a journalist depended on his ease with languages, his knowledge of European politics, and his quick judgment which sometimes failed him in his personal life. When he finds himself on a train bound for Austria with insufficient funds, he jumps at the chance to earn a fee to help a refugee smuggle securities across the border. He soon discovers that the documents he holds have more than a monetary value. Difficult title.

With Roger Corbeau's photo credit ("PHOTO ROGER CORBEAU") at the bottom left of the frame. On the verso is a rubber stamp for the Cinémonde Archives.An extraordinary "fourth wall" shot, demonstrating at once the method and the magic of Pagnol's filmmaking, as well as his relentless interest in provincial life in France. In this film, a new baker, Aimable (Raimu) settles down in a small French village. His wife Aurelie is beautiful and much younger than he. She departs with a shepherd the night after Aimable produces his first breads. Aimable is so afflicted that he cannot work anymore. The villagers, who initially laugh at his cuckoldry, soon take the matter very seriously (they want the bread), and organize a plan to find Aurelie and to bring her back to the bakery and her husband.In a custom museum-quality frame, archivally mounted, with UV glass. 9.25 by 7 inches. Four tiny single pinholes at the corners, within the white marginal border. Near Fine overall.

        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
