        The White Horses of Vienna.

      London: Faber and Faber Limited, 1937 - Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine in silver. With the dust jacket. An excellent copy with very faint spotting to the edges and to some early and late leaves, in the very lightly rubbed jacket with three small closed tears along edges. Inscribed first UK edition, first impression, copy of Kay Boyle's first book to be published in England (originally published in the US by Harcourt, Brace & Co. in the preceding year). The White Horses of Vienna, for which Boyle won the O. Henry Award for best short story of the year, was written while she was living in Austria 1933-6, observing the rise of Nazism. Boyle's striking presentation inscription on the title page sums up the book's animus: "Dear Burton: Thomas Mann spoke a great truth when he said that "if the writers of Germany through their vision and their expression of that vision had made more impelling promises than those Hitler made, it would have been Hitler, and not the writers of Germany, who would have been forced into exile. It is always the writers who must bear the full weight of moral responsibility." My love goes with this message and this book. July 9, 1991, Kay". Burton Norval Hatlen (1936-2008) was an American literary critic and professor at the University of Maine, who wrote the Introduction to Kay Boyle's The Death of a Man.

        LES PASTORALES DE LONGUS OU DAPHNIS ET CHLOÉ

      Les Frères Gonin, Paris 1937 - 219 x 137 mm (8 5/8 x 5 3/8"). [2], 217, [5] pp. One volume and one portfolio. Translated by Jacques Amyot. ONE OF 500 COPIES, SIGNED BY THE ARTIST (this is copy #CXXV, one of the hors commerce copies with an additional suite of plates). MOST ATTRACTIVE BEIGE CRUSHED MOROCCO BY IRMGARD HACCIUS (stamp-signed "I. H." in gilt on rear cover), front cover with gilt titling (arranged in 10 short, descending rows) surrounded by blind-tooled leaves and grasses, rear cover with three-inch column of blind-tooled leaves bearing gilt berries and the binder's initials, flat spine with titling in blind, top edge gilt. Housed, with the portfolio of plates in its original printed paper wrapper, in a matching marbled paper folding box with beige morocco spine and edges (no doubt done by Haccius as well). WITH 47 WOODCUTS BY ARISTIDE MAILLOL depicting scenes from the text, AND WITH AN EXTRA SUITE OF 48 PLATES printed in sanguine, the additional plate bearing the 15 woodcut initials used in the text. Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of German bibliophile and music publisher Ludwig Strecker. The Artist and the Book 174. A SPLENDID COPY, clean and bright in a luxurious unworn binding. This version of Longus' charming Greek pastoral novel of awakening love long retained its popularity and was published frequently, often with illustrations. And perhaps the chief virtue of the present edition is the unaffected, sometimes mischievous woodcuts of nymphs and lovers by the French-Catalan artist Aristide Maillol (see previous entry). According to "The Artist and the Book," the work is "perhaps the most harmonious of Maillol's illustrated books." The very attractive and intelligent binding is by Mainz master bookbinder Irmgard Haccius (1916-2003), whose work here is entirely in keeping with the illustrator's graceful simplicity. Haccius studied at the art academies in Munich and Berlin in addition to completing advanced training in book binding at the Academy of Fine Arts at Castle Giebenstein Hall. She was one of the first faculty members at the State University Institute for Art and Handicraft in Mainz, before joining Johannes Gutenberg University in 1973 as a professor in the Department of Visual Arts.

        Mr. Norris Changes Trains

      The Hogarth Press, London 1937 - Signed by Author. June, 1937 new edition of Isherwood's third novel with, on the title page, a line through his printed name & his signature beneath; from the library of Frank Thistlethwaite (Vice-Chancellor of the University of East Anglia from 1961 to 1980) who has signed the fep with the date November 6th 1937; A fellow of St John's College, Cambridge, Thistlethwaite served as a lecturer in the Faculty of Economics and Politics at the University of Cambridge from 1949-61 & was founding chairman of the British Association for American Studies (1955-59). As a young man he went from St. John's, on a Commonwealth fellowship, to the University of Minnesota & lived in America until the second world war which is probably where he met Isherwood; "Inspiration for the novel was drawn from Isherwood's experiences as an expatriate living in Berlin during the early 1930's and the character of Mr Norris is based on Gerald Hamilton. Originally planned as a much more comprehensive and conceptual work, Isherwood jettisoned much of the material and many of the characters to focus on Norris. Initially Isherwood planned to write the novel in the third person, but when he decided to narrow the novel's focus to Norris he changed to first person. He believed this would allow the reader to 'experience' Mr Norris as Isherwood had experienced Gerald Hamilton."; this novel & 'Goodbye to Berlin' provided the inspiration for the play 'I Am a Camera' (1951), the 1955 film 'I Am a Camera' (both starring Julie Harris), the Broadway musical 'Cabaret' (1966) and the film (1972) of the same name. a sound copy though with some wear to spine edges & corners; two newspaper clippings from the time of Isherwood's death are loosely inserted; 280 pages. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Fiction; Novel; Germany; 1930s; Literature & Literary. Signed by Author. Inventory No: NOV00023.

Bindings lightly rubbe and marked, spine a little tanned, endpapers tanned, contents toned. A very good copy in the rubbed jacket with faded spine panel and two short closed tears.

Wood (1852–1944) was a writer, lawyer, and prominant supporter of radical causes, and Earthly Discourse is a collection of satirical stories in this vein. Wood was friendly with many activists and writers, including John Steinbeck, whose Of Mice and Men was published the year before this book was inscribed. "The Cats" was the name of Wood's house: the name of the town means "the cats" in Spanish. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        STAR MAKER

      London: Methuen & Co. Ltd.,. [1937]. Octavo, pp. [i-iv] v-ix [x] xi-xii 1-339 [340: printer's imprint],. original sea green wrappers printed in black.. Wrappers lightly worn at tail of spine panel and corner tips, several. faint creases to wrappers, spine panel just a bit age-darkened, a. very good, attractive copy. Rare. (#95773). Advance copy (uncorrected proof) of the first edition. "Rough Proof" printed at head of title on front cover. Publication date "June 10th" and price "8s 6d" neatly written in red ink on front wrapper (Satty and Smith give the publication date as 24 June 1937). Stapledon's fourth novel, often regarded as his greatest work, and one of the very few truly seminal modern SF novels. "... mind-boggling imaginative tour de force ...." - Survey of Science Fiction Literature V, pp. 2150-55. "... a tremendously exciting exposition of Stapledon's philosophy, which extends his thought to its logical conclusion." - Anatomy of Wonder (1976) 3-60. "A magnificent work by any standards; the most important speculative work of the period." - Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 2-121. "LAST AND FIRST MEN is just slightly an atheist's tract, based largely on nineteenth-century thought, and in particular on Winwood Reade's MARTYRDOM OF MAN. In STAR MAKER, the atheism has become a faith in itself, so that it inevitably approaches higher religion, which is bodied forth on a genuinely new twentieth- century perception of cosmology. It therefore marks a great step forward in Stapledon's art, the thought unfolding with little sense of strain through chapter after chapter. It is magnificent. It is almost unbearable ... LAST AND FIRST MEN and STAR MAKER soar far beyond the accepted limits of science fiction ... Stapledon is the great classical example, the cold pitch of perfection as he turns scientific concepts into vast ontological epic prose poems, the ultimate SF writer." - Aldiss and Wingrove, Trillion Year Spree: The History of Science Fiction, p. 198. Stapledon's "influence, both direct and indirect, on the development of many concepts which now permeate genre SF is probably second only to that of H. G. Wells." - Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), pp. 1151-53. Anatomy of Wonder (1981) 2-101; (1987) 2-112; and (2004) II-1072.

Original blue cloth, title gilt to spine and front board, top edge blue, publisher's device in blind to the bottom fore-corners of both boards. 21 photographic plates. Spine very lightly sunned, top edge slightly faded, endpapers lightly tanned. An excellent copy. First edition first impression of this collection of keenly observed biographical sketches of Victorian statesmen, Great War notables, and key political figures of the 1930s, including T. E. Lawrence, Trotsky, and Hitler; "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." On receiving his advance copy, Neville Chamberlain wrote to Churchill immediately: "How you can go on throwing off these sparkling sketches with such apparent ease & such sustained brilliance, in the midst of all your other occupations is a constant source of wonder to me.
