        Despair. Translated from the Russian by the author.

      London, John Long, Limited, 1937 - Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to upper board and spine gilt. Housed in a blue silk drop down box with a blue morocco title label to the backstrip gilt. Endpapers somewhat browned, spine a little dull, slightly delicate at the top and with a touch of rub to the lettering. Very nice. First English edition, first impression, and Nabokov's first attempted at an extended piece of fiction in English. It had been preceded in 1935 by Camera Obscura, the first of Nabokov's works to be translated into English and published by the hapless firm of John Long. Nabokov greatly disliked the translation and its poor quality "prompted Nabokov to undertake translating his next novel, Despair, by himself, a major step in his decision to become an English-language writer" (Boyd, Russian Years, p. 446). Few copies exist in jacket and copies as nice as this are very scarce. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Great Contemporaries

      G.P. Putnam's Sons, New York 1937 - This is Churchill's much praised collection of insightful essays about 21 leading personalities of the day - including the likes of Lawrence, Shaw, and, most famously, Hitler. About Hitler, Churchill writes: "We cannot tell whether Hitler will be the man who will once again let loose upon the world another war in which civilization will irretrievably succumb, or whether he will go down in history as the man who restored honour and peace of mind to the great Germanic nation and brought it back serene, helpful and strong, to the forefront of the European family circle." The book was written with what has been called "penetrating evaluation, humor, and understanding." Churchill also reveals key glimpses into his own character and perspective. This is as fascinating a read today as it was in 1937. Offered here is the first U.S. edition, first printing, a fine copy in a very good dust jacket. The blue cloth binding is tight, clean and square, with sharp corners and virtually no wear. The contents are clean and tight. No spotting. No inscriptions. The red-stained top edge retains vivid, unfaded color. The correct, first printing dust jacket is unclipped, still bearing the original $4.00 price on the front flap. The jacket is also unfaded, retaining unusually bright blue color, even on the spine. The jacket does suffer some wear. There is chipping at the spine ends, along the bottom edge of the front face, and at the top edge of the rear face, the largest being a 1.75 wide by .5 inch deep triangular loss at the rear face. There is also a faint vertical crease at the spine and wear at the front flap fold. Nonetheless, this is a better than usual copy of a scarce first printing dust jacket. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A105.2.a, Woods/ICS A43(ab.1), Langworth p.179. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        HPL

      [Belleville, N. J.: Corwin F. Stickney,. 1937]. Small octavo, 12 unnumbered leaves, printed on rectos only,. printed paper wrappers (in imitation of leatherette), stapled.. Touch of tanning to covers, else a fine copy. (#110365). First edition. Limited to 25 copies. Published by Corwin F. Stickney (Belleville, N.J.) in 1937, although no printing information appears anywhere in the book. Twenty-five copies were printed and given free to whoever paid a year's subscription of 25¢ to Stickney's AMATEUR CORRESPONDENT. The book was announced in the Lovecraft Memorial issue of AMATEUR CORRESPONDENT (May / June 1937) on page [29]: "These poems -- all favorites of Lovecraft -- have been combined to form a tribute to this man's poetic genius, which, while not so generally appreciated as his ability for writing prose, was nevertheless greater than that of most living fantasy writers. The size of this volume is four by six inches, and it is printed on an excellent grade of book paper with an attractive leatherette cover. The frontispiece carries Virgil Finlay's portrait of HPL used on this month's cover of the CORRESPONDENT. Every admirer of Lovecraft will undoubtedly want a copy of this petite volume. Obviously, however, it cannot be placed on sale; and it would be much beyond our means to send a copy free of charge to everyone who would write in for one. We therefore believe the only logical method of distribution is to give a free copy with every subscription to the CORRESPONDENT, at the regular rate of twenty-five cents for a year. We reason that practically every one who would be interested in such a booklet reads the CORRESPONDENT and would be willing to obtain a copy in this manner. Inasmuch as a very limited number of copies of the first edition of this volume are being printed, we urge you to reply with your subscription by return mail, mentioning this advertisement to insure your receipt of a copy."

His portraits of Colonel John Weatherford and the other main characters catch superbly the spirit of Gordon Grand's classic text. A FINE SET OF ILLUSTRATIONS First Winward House Edition.

The drawings are rendered in ink and gray wash; there are a few light marginal smudges, printer's penciled notes in one margin, away from the image, else fine. Siegel pp. 235-238

        The Case of The Seven of Calvary

      Simon & Schuster, New York 1937 - Very Good in the publisher's full black cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt (still brilliant) and the front board is stamped in blind. Deep red topstain and beige endpapers. 312pps. (For purposes of presentation, a beautiful facsimile dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has been added to this item.) There is a bit of wear at the tips and the spine-ends including a 1/8" nick in the cloth at the heel of the spine. Also, there is a small bump at the fore-edge of five or six pages. Internally, there is a previous owner's gift inscription and name-stamp near the top of the ffep. Otherwise clean and bright with a sound and square binding. SIGNED by the author -- without further inscription -- on the ffep. A nice copy of this Inner Sanctum Mystery -- scarce signed. The author's first novel and a high-spot in the mystery genre. "We pass this book along to innumerable readers who, we believe, are going to find it as brilliant and baffling as we did. Some of the ingredients are: (1) A cast of characters in which the author has marked those who are not guilty. (2) A chapter-before-the-last in which the author sums up his case, restates the essential clues, and gives the actual page numbers on which they appear. (3) The symbol of The Seven of Calvary, left at the scene of each murder, that leads to a dead end every time. (4) A scholar who solves the murders without leaving the quiet of his library. The first death takes place on the campus of a large American university. There is, seemingly, no motive for it. There is no clue of any kind except the rough drawing of The Seven of Calvary left near the body. And from this very lack of motive, this apparently patternless murder, Dr. Ashwin gets the first intimation of the pieces of the puzzle -- an intimation that crystallizes with the second murder into a perfect whole. Mr. Boucher presents his puzzle with skill; he salts it with a lusty sense of humor; he has a lot of fun with his characters. In short, we hope you enjoy it." -- Inner Sanctum Mysteries.
