        The Road To Wigan Pier

      London: Gollancz,, 1937. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine in yellow. With the dust jacket. 32 photographic plates. An excellent copy in the nicked and sunned dust jacket, somewhat dusty and with minor loss at the top of the spine panel and a couple of light ring marks to the upper panel. Exceedingly scarce in the dust jacket. First edition, first impression, trade issue. One of just 1000 published in this format. A review copy with the publisher's slip laid in. The other versions are in the familiar limp orange cloth of the Left Book Club. Copies of this seminal work of reportage in this state and condition are deeply uncommon. Probably more than in any of Orwell's other non-fiction, it is in these pages that large portions of his masterpiece 1984 first took form: most obvious perhaps the recurring image of womanhood as seen from a passing train, a woman grown huge from childbirth, up to her elbow in cabbage-odoured water, making a futile attempt to unblock a drain.

        DIE WAPPENBUCHER VOM ARLBERG Erster Teil: die drei Original-handschriften von St. Christoph auf dem Arlberg aus den Jahren 1394 bis rund 1430.

      Berlin, Volksbund der deutschen Sippenkundlichen Vereine, 1937-1943. In-4 gr., cartelletta con legacci in cartonato coevo, tit. oro su tassello al dorso, contenente 10 fascicoli in bross., a fogli sciolti, di complessive pp. 328, magnificamente illustrati da xilografie a colori che raffigurano antichi stemmi araldici risalenti al periodo 1394-1430 e appartenenti alla Confraternita di St. Christoph am Arlberg (Tirolo). Ogni pagina contiene uno o più stemmi, presentati con la descrizione della famiglia. Una delle più importanti opere di araldica, realizzata alla fine degli anni ?'30, a cura del tedesco Otto Hupp (1859-1949), grande disegnatore di insegne e incisore, e più volte ristampata. La Confraternita di S. Cristoforo fu creata per salvaguardare l?'esistenza dell?'ospizio fondato da Heinrich Findelkind nel 1386. Chi aveva ricevuto aiuto si associava a S. Cristoforo e si impegnava a dare un contributo. Vennero riempiti interi registri con i nomi e le armi di tutti coloro che ne facevano parte, nomi dei fondatori, dei molti benefattori, di provenienza non solo austriaca ma anche svizzera, tedesca, ecc. I membri facevano parte di ogni classe sociale, quindi troveremo uomini famosi come pure tanta gente comune. Mentre le altre collezioni di stemmi usavano limitarsi alla nobiltà, qui ad Arlberg le armi venivano assegnate con la riscossione del tributo. Esemplare ben conservato. Raro.

        Enchanting Beauty (With A Print From The Book)

      New York: Swan Publications, 1937. First edition. Fine in a near fine example of the publisher's pictorial box. A trace of soiling, one slight stain to the front of the box, otherwise bright and clean. Although not marked as such, this is one of the photographer's own copies, obtained from his estate. This copy accompanied by an untitled, unsigned gravure print, presumably hand-pulled, of the photograph reproduced on page 85 of the book, with the paper measuring 14 3/4 by 18 inches, the circular image 7 inches in diameter with a 1/4 inch margin. The print is in near fine condition, a few slight surfaces smudges, some very slight wear to the right hand edge. A sequence of production numbers in pencil to the lower left hand quarter. No information has come to light regarding the print, its origin or its intended end-use; apparently it was part of an unfinished and/or abandoned project, more than likely a portfolio produced some years after the book's publication. In any event a near fine example of the book, with a remarkable provenance, and an uncommon gravure print of one of the loveliest images in the book.

        Bibliography Of Cricket

Part of his vast collection was dispersed in 1966 at Hodgson's Auction rooms in Chancery Lane, Holborn, fittingly some thought as Goldman was a solicitor. Quite apart from the list of items, which makes fascinating reading, the eye is drawn to approximations of values, which Goldman's makes a stab in some instances. 4to. 211pp. Black cloth with a colophon of the Goldman book-plate embossed on upper board, title in gilt lettering to spine. Dust-wrapper, torn in places, edges tatty, spine soiled. Presentation copy No.14 of a Limited Edition of 125, numbered and signed by the author.  [Padwick, 20]   [Attributes: Signed Copy]

This first English edition substantially revised. Inside front boar is the bookplate of M.L. Burstein "One of the sharpest minds in economics of the last century" - from online reference. "The depreciation of the mark of 1914-1923, which is the subject of this work, is one of the outstanding episodes in the history of the twentieth century. Not only by reason of its magnitude but also by reason of its effects, it looms large on our horizon. It was the most colossal thing of its kind in history: and, next probably to the Great War itself, it must bear responsibility for many of the political and economic difficulties of our generation. It destroyed the wealth of the more solid elements in German society; and it left behind a moral and economic disequilibrium, apt breeding ground for the disasters which have followed." - from Foreword. Gilt lettering legible upon blue backstrip which is sunned along with portions of each board. Bit of writing inside front board otherwise clean and unmarked. Binding intact. A sound association copy of this important work, Association Copy
