        Sandpaintings of the Navajo Shooting Chant

      J.J. Augustin, 1937. 1st. Bound in a heavy-weave orange burlap, this is the 1937 1st trade ed. With 35 gorgeous color plates silkscreened on Japanese paper. Some of the orange from the binding has bled onto the upper part of the last 10 plates. Also, some fraying to the top and bottom of the spine. The binding though is still very sturdy. This was a fragile book even when issued and, no doubt, even the very best copies must be treated gingerly. With this copy two prospectuses have been laid in, one from the autographed edition of the same title(only 250 autographed copies) and the other from "Navajo Medicine Man: Sandpaintings and Legends of Miguelito", another title published by J.J. Augustin and written by Gladys Reichard. Signed by Author(s).

        Manuscript] Statement regarding Franklin D. Roosevelt's attempt to enlarge the Supreme Court.

      1937 - written in black ink on 'Long Key Fishing Camp' headed paper, a few deletions, corrections and insertions by the author, including two false starts at head, pp. [2], 4to, a few creases to corners and light handling marks, good condition. Grey is here responding to a request from C.K. Gregg, of the Society for Preservation of American Ideals and Form of Government, soliciting the author's opinion on this matter - a photocopy of this letter and the George Ade article that accompanied it are included here. Grey writes: 'The constitution is, and has always been, in spite of changes in our ways of living [.], the bulwark of our national liberty; our defense against dictatorship and radicalism. With the fight being waged by labor at present, which to me is none less than a miniature scale of what is happening in Europe - of course, minus a good deal of the bloodshed - the Supreme Court is the one check in the complete freedom of government that could well be filled with more radicalism or desire towards dictatorship than it is today. It is not only what President Roosevelt might do with more freedom, it is what future men might do under the stress of the stronger conflict of ideas [.]'. An impassioned response to an important question, otherwise unpublished - Roosevelt's initiative was well-opposed and ultimately unsuccessful at this time. (Plus VAT in the EU)

        Medieval English Pavingtiles

      Oxford: Shakespeare Head Press Saint Aldates, 1937. First Edition. Half Morocco. . Near Fine. A fascinating look at what was, and remains, a neglected area of Medieval decorative arts. 4to.26 by 20 cm. 327 pp. Red over the cream paper illustrations on most pages -- well over 225 illustrations. Most pages with two tile specimens and a caption, sometimes long, explaining where the specimen is located and occasionally more background about the specimen. The specimens show the wide range of Medieval or Gothic creativity, all the time while working within some conventions. Also examples of lettering, which may be a topic of particular interest. The paper used in the book was a luxuriant stock with a high linen count. The cloth on the boards has moderate soiling. Foxing on the endpapers. A few minor rub spots on the leather. Nonetheless, this is a very handsome copy which overall we would consider near fine.

        Towards Armageddon The Defence Problem and its Solution

      Lovat Dickson, London 1937 - Beautifully preserved copy of this very scarce first edition. The dust jacket has only very minor edge wear and a touch of fading to the spine. See pictures. Not price clipped. The book is in very clean and fresh condition. Most importantly the book is inscribed to "Boney" Fuller's mother from the author and reads: "To Mother with love from the author, her son, John. 29.4.37. It is further later inscribed in light pencil by Fuller's brother, AWF Fuller who was famous in his own right, "AWF Fuller from Mother" then there is a further note/annotation from AWF Fuller commenting on how unworthy the comments in a newspaper article (laid in) were about his brother. In essence he defends his brother in the notes. This is a truely exceptional copy and an important piece of military history. Boney Fuller was at the forefront of armoured and tank warfare, when many around him were doubters of its capabilities. Some say that if the First WW had gone on another year the Boney would have been more famous than Montgomery later was due to the massive tank battle which was planned for 1919. J.F.C was also a colourful character because of his early dabblings in esoteric matters and the occult, particularly in his association with Aleister Crowley. Later he is said to have been a Nazi sympathizer and Oswald Moseley supporter in the 1930s. Part of a collection obtained from family members. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1937. No. 322 OF 970 COPIES of the Autograph Edition, volume I SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR n. Hardcover. An Unopened Set in the Original Oversized Dust Jackets. 232 x 156 mm (9 1/8 x 6 1/8").13 volumes. No. 322 OF 970 COPIES of the Autograph Edition, volume I SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. Publisher's original cream-colored linen over gray-blue linen boards, covers with author's cipher in gilt, black spine label, top edges gilt, others edges untrimmed and UNOPENED, and IN THE UNCOMMON ORIGINAL OVERSIZED DUST JACKETS. Containing 12 frontispieces with tissue guards (volume XIII without frontispiece, as issued). Crane AA1, first issue. Faint browning to spines of a few of the dust jackets (this browning extending onto rear panel of one jacket), two jackets with some tears and wrinkling along the bottom fold-over flaps, minor rumpling and tears to jacket edges elsewhere, but still AN EXCEPTIONALLY FINE SET, the unread volumes perfectly preserved, and the jackets with basically minor defects. Designed by Bruce Rogers, this is a remarkably well-preserved set, complete with the rarely seen dust jackets, of the collected works of eminent American novelist Willa Cather. After a youth lived on the Great Plains of Nebraska, Cather (1873-1947) had her first short story published in 1892 at age 19 and never looked back-except in the sense that her works dealt with the Nebraska she grew up in, the destruction of provincial life, and the fall of pioneer culture. Limning those themes, "O Pioneers!" and "My Antonia," respectively published in 1913 and 1917, are among her most popular and enduring novels. She won the 1923 Pulitzer Prize for her novel "One of Ours," which tells the story of a Nebraska man at the turn of the 20th century. And "Death Comes for the Archbishop (1927) is the work that is perhaps most studied, generally being included among the 100 best 20th century novels in English. Her body of work, written over an extended period of time, is impressive. Bruce Rogers (1870-1957) is among the greatest book designers of the 20th century. Rejecting modernism, he was known for his "classical" style of design, avoiding unbalanced arrangements and rarely using sans serif type faces, preferring dependable roman faces such as Caslon and his own Centaur. The oversized dust jackets have accomplished their intended purpose to the full here, completely sheltering these volumes from light, dust, and soil, preserving them in an absolutely immaculate state. Not surprisingly, these wrappers are rarely seen: since 1975, ABPC records 20 sales of this edition of collected works, but just three are in dust jackets. And the particular design of the jackets--where the paper folds over the top and bottom of the text block--makes them even more than usually susceptible to wear and tear.

        Our Wandering Continents

      Edinburgh: Oliver and Boyd,, 1937. An Hypothesis of Continental Drifting. Octavo. Original dark red cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. With 48 maps and diagrams. Near contemporary gift inscription to front free endpaper. Boards gently splayed, head of spine slightly bumped, light crease to fore margin of first few leaves. An excellent copy in a likewise excellent jacket with toned spine and rear panel, lightly nicked and chipped extremities, minor loss to head of spine, and a short closed tear to top of front panel. First edition, first impression. The South African geologist Alexander Logie du Toit (1878?-1948) was an early supporter of the theory of continental drift proposed by Alfred Wegener (1880?-1930). However, du Toit differed from Wegener in terms of the number of supercontinents envisaged: Wegener suggested a single original continent (Pangaea) while du Toit instead proposed two continents (Laurasia and Gondwana).
