        Italiani di Mussolini in A.O

      1937. GARATTI, Celso Maria. Italiani di Mussolini in A.O. 569 pp. Profusely illustrated. Large folio, bound in publisher's cloth with spine made from copper tubes, and onlaid metal axe on the front cover. Bologna: L. Cappelli, 1937. |~||~||~||~| A stupendous object, in a binding that is completely over the top. Fascist bombast at its most preposterous. The binding mimics the fascist fasces, and even though this copy bears the number 672, presumably was not produced in a large quantity, and represents one of the few bindings which could be melted down and put to a more useful existence. The layout shows the surprising influence of the avant garde of the twenties and thirties, which is at variance with the subject matter, namely the brilliant conquest of poorly armed Africans by Mussolini's military might. Surely one of the most striking and rarest of photobooks. Very rare, with OCLC recording just fives copies in the US and one copy in Italy.

This set includes the steel plate of "After the sentence", an illustration by H. K. Browne ("Phiz") for A Tale of Two Cities. Together with the prospectus.

        An Essay on Flecker

      Garden City, N.Y.: Doubleday, Doran, 1937. First American edition, one of 56 copies to secure copyright. 4 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Original wrappers, fine copy. One of 56 Copies Poet and diplomat James Elroy Flecker (1884-1915) burned bright and briefly. He joined the diplomatic service in 1908, trained for two years, and was posted to Constantinople in 1910, "but in September a slight fever was diagnosed as tuberculosis and he returned to England to a sanatorium. He pronounced himself cured and ? went back to Constantinople in March 1911, to be transferred in April to Beirut. Flecker was not a very efficient vice-consul" (ODNB). His first formal collection of verse, The Bridge of Fire, was published in 1907, and The Golden Journey to Samarkand was published in 1913. He died in Switzerland aged thirty-one.According to O'Brien, An Essay on Flecker was "written in 1925 with the intention of publication in a periodical, [and] did not appear in print until 1937 when it was [first] issued in [a] very limited edition of 30 copies [by the Corvinus Press in London]. The poet James Elroy Flecker had been a friend of Lawrence's in Beirut before the war. None of the three appearances of this essay have been in trade editions"

        Call of the Savage

Signed in Full By Author. First edition in very scarce dust jacket. Signed in full by the author on front free endpaper. This edition has been seen in two variant binding states, no known priority. This binding state is very sharp black, with crisp, unfaded bright red backgrounds to the lettering areas on spine and front cover. The dust jacket is an intermediate shade which fades extremely easily. Fading to spine of dust jacket, tips are barely clipped as some publishers were wont to do (not obliterating any print or pricing), one slight small area of pink offsetting on the inside of the dust jacket's spine from the red of the spine of the book, one small piece of paper tape to the top inside of the back of the dust jacket, traces of erasure above the author's signature on front free endpaper, otherwise very near fine in near fine dust jacket.
