        "Complete set of the Tourist library, nos. 1-40"

      "Board of Tourist Industry, Japanese Government Railways", 1937-1942. [Tokyo]: "Board of Tourist Industry, Japanese Government Railways". 1937-1942. "8vo, 40 vols.; published by the Japanese Board of Tourist Industry at the onset of World War II, each volume addresses one specific aspect of Japanese culture. The original mission statement read: ""The present series will, when completed, consist of more than a hundred volumes, each dealing with a different subject, but all coordinated. By reading therefore the entire series the foreign student of Japan may gain an adequate knowledge of the unique culture that has developed in this country through the ages."" Naturally, by 1942, the original goal to publish ""more than a hundred volumes"" was aborted. Subjects range across a diverse spectrum of subjects, from Japanese drama to education to food, music, birds, folk-toys, and proverbs. Highlights include works on Angling in Japan, which describes the characteristics of the Japanese angler (""no more truthful about the size of the fish he catches than his Western brother"") as well as the fish and tackle, ending with a brief chapter on angling for the tourist; several works are also devoted to the various martial arts practiced in the country, including Sumo and Judo; works devoted to the genres of drama, Noh plays, Kabuki theater, and Odorui (Japanese dance). The book arts are also not over looked: the set includes volumes on Japanese wood-block prints as well as Hand-made paper in Japan, in which 15 examples of hand-made paper have been tipped in. All volumes bound in pictorial paper wrappers and profusely illustrated in color and black and white. Each volume shows moderate edge and corner wear, as usual. An attractive and enlightening set. "

        CONTINUAL DEW A Little Book of Bourgeois Verse

      Murray , 1937. Murray , 1937. First edition. Original black cloth with elaborate gilt design in stylish pictorial dustwrapper designed by E. McKnight Kauffer. All edges gilt. Inscribed by Betjeman to Gilbert Harding on the half title, "Inscribed for Gilbert H by John Betjeman" A near fine copy in a very good dustwrapper indeed which shows a touch of tanning to the spine and a little wear to the spine ends. Gilbert Harding (1907-1960), journalist and television broadcaster who made a hit with his irascibility and sharpness. Harding and Betjeman appeared together on such programmes as 'What's My Line?' and 'Who Said That?'. According to Candida Lycett Green (John Betjeman Letters Vol II, p.44), "They got on like a house on fire." Following a television appearance together, Betjeman wrote in a letter to Harding, "you must surely know and that is that you are a GENIUS. You may not know it but you have a turn of phrase that is equal to that of Thomas Gray and Gibbon whom you quoted." Continual Dew is Betjeman's second book of verse, containing perhaps his most famous poem 'Slough', as well as "The Arrest of Oscar Wilde at Cadogan Hotel" and "The Wykehamist".

Il lavoro e' corredato da 18 tavole di acquarelli e disegni originali dell'Autore, cosi' suddivise: Legnago e dintorni (carta geografica a 3 colori: rosso, nero e blu) in scala 1:100.000 Grafico della temperatura della localita' durante la stagione invernale (grafico a 3 colori) Andamento delle precipitazioni sul territorio legnaghese nella stagione primaverile ed estiva L'Adige e gli altri corsi d'acqua/ Isole e banchi di sabbia in scala 1:25.000 (a piu' colori) Posizione e stato dell'Isola e dei banchi di sabbia durante la massima secca invernale (11.2.1937).

Il ricco materiale Tosco lo raccolse in questo splendido lavoro manoscritto. Nel 1954 divenne libero docente di botanica, esperto soprattutto di briologia e lichenologia, fitosociologia e micologia (fu pure delegato sanitario presso l'Uffcio di Sorveglianza sulla commestibilita' dei funghi e altre derrate ortofrutticole presso il Mercato Ortofrutticolo di Torino) .

        Owned by FDR! Original cartoon artwork depicting President Franklin D. Roosevelt, addressed to Hyde Park, postmarked and delivered to him ñ from FDRís own ìBouquets & Brickbratsî collection, exhibited in 1946

      Chicago, Illinois: , 1937 Envelope with an original color drawing of Franklin D. Roosevelt, 3¢ Ordinance of 1787 stamp affixed, postmarked Chicago, Illinois, October 8, 1937, 6.5î x 3.75î. Return address: ìDan Glassman / 1524 S. Harding Ave. / Chicago, Ill.î With the drawing and ìHyde Park / New Yorkî inked on the envelope, it was delivered to the President. Affixed onto a vintage original White Ace stamp album page with an FDR photograph at top left, headed ìFranklin Delano Roosevelt / Postage Stamp Issues.î In 1946, auctioneers H.R. Harmer Inc. sold the entire valuable stamp collection of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Our own John Reznikoff knew Bernard Harmer, who sold the FDR Collection, personally. As a young dealer in the late 1970s, Reznikoff recalls discussing the Collection with Harmer who said that FDR was very visual and particular about what he bought for his own stamp collection. Stamp dealer Jacques MInkus (1901-1996), owner of the stamp departments at the Gimbel Brothers department stores in New York and Philadelphia, bought the small group of the ìBouquets & Brickbatsî envelopes which FDR had kept and cherished. Some were ìBouquetsî addressing him as, for example, ìGreatest Man in the Worldî and ìMr. Big.î Others were ìBrickbatsî addressing him, for example, as ìRattlesnake Rooseveltî and ìFranklin Deficit Roosevelt.î At the height of Minkus' success he had counters in 38 department stores around the United States. Minkus considered FDRís ìBouquets & Brickbatsî his favorite personal collection. The group was held by Minkusí heirs until 2013 and was acquired from his grandson. The postmarked envelope here offered was in FDRís ìBouquets & Brickbatsî grouping which Minkus had exhibited in 1946. After he had purchased the collection, he was quoted by United Press, ìI am 100 per cent for Roosevelt. The item gave the president some laughs. It doesnít hurt for us to laugh at it now Ã? Pretty soon we will advertise the show. I can hardly wait.î Color photocopies of two original signs from the exhibit are included.

Offprint of this significant paper positing the existence of gravitational waves, a principal work as designated by Weil.

Complete file of the short-lived periodical edited by Greene. 2 vols., 4to. Illustrated. Modern blue buckram, maroon spine labels, with original pictorial wrappers bound in. Pp. 30-31 of issue for 28 October pasted together in bound volume. Accompanied by an unexpurgated copy of that issue in wrappers . This London magazine, edited by Graham Greene, aimed to establish itself as a illustrated literary weekly similar in style and tone to the New Yorker. Greene wrote a film column and other contributors included Evelyn Waugh as books columnist, Osbert Lancaster, John Betjeman, Constant Lambert, Alistair Cooke, Anthony Powell, Malcolm Muggeridge, Stevie Smith, Louis MacNeice, V.S Pritchett, Hugh Casson, Christopher Isherwood and A.J.A. Symons. Illustrators included Feliks Topolski, John Nash, Nicholas Bentley and Paul Crum. Greene's film column for 28 October, on Miss Shirley Temple, prompted an action for libel from Twentieth Century Fox that helped kill the magazine. Norman Sherry writes: 'Greene later recalled that he kept on his bathroom wall, until a bomb removed the wall, the statement of claim, "that I had accused Twentieth Century Fox of 'procuring' Miss Temple 'for immoral purposes'"' (622).

      Faber , 1937. Faber , 1937. First edition. Original buff cloth printed in blue on the spine, in grey printed dustwrapper. A very good copy indeed, with some light stains to the page edges and a contemporary ownership name, in a very good dustwrapper indeed which shows a little wear to the head of the spine but is generally clean and crisp. Three black and white plates, two reproductions of designs for etchings and one map, all by the author. The author's first book and most celebrated work, which takes the form of an epic prose poem set in the first world war, based on the author's own experiences. It was ten years in the making and was eventually helped to publication by T.S. Eliot, who hailed the book as "a work of genius". It won the 1938 Hawthornden prize. "This work of a poet-painter has its every word chiselled out of experience, and it is probably the World War I monument most likely to survive." - Stephen Spender (review in the NY Times).

      Parton Press , 1937. Parton Press , 1937. First English language edition. Original blue cloth backed black boards with black titles on the spine and blue title label on the upper cover in the very rare glassine dustwrapper with the printed price on the inside flap. A near fine book, with a neat inscription on the front end paper and minor wear to the corners. The glassine shows chipping to the corners and the spine with the sporadic loss of about an inch from the base of the spine. Originally published under the the title of Die Verwandlung in Leipzig in 1915, it was translated into English for this edition by A. L. Lloyd. Its perceptions make it one of the most significant works in the development of twentieth century consciousness. Vladimir Nabokov, who ranked The Metamorphosis second only to Ulysses in his critique of twentieth century prose, described Kafka as, "the greatest German writer of our time. Such poets as Rilke or such novelists as Thomas Mann are dwarfs or plaster saints in comparison to him." Rare in its glassine dustwrapper.
