        The Road to Oxiana.

      1937 - London, Macmillan, 1937. 8vo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt; pp. x, 341, [2, advertisements]; photographic frontispiece and 15 photographic plates after Byron, 5 full-page sketch maps; binding a bit faded, mainly to spine; internally near fine. First edition, getting rather scarce. Byron's account of his search for the origins of Islamic architecture has become a classic of modern travel literature. Written in the form of diary jottings, it records his journey from Venice through the Middle East and Afghanistan to India; as the publisher's blurb states, "Oxiana, in this context, means Afghan Turkestan, the rich pastoral plain which separates the Oxus from the Hindu Kush and meets Badakshan on the east". The Road to Oxiana "may be described as an enquiry into the origins of Islamic art presented in the form of one of the most entertaining travel books of modern times. [Byron] wrote it in China during 1935 and 1936 after making the overland journey to the Far East through Russia. [It] was reprinted in 1981 with an introduction by Bruce Chatwin. Chatwin considered it ‘a work of genius’ which he personally elevated ‘to the status of “sacred text”’ (Chatwin, ix). But it was also an important book. In between the ‘bravura passages’ (ibid., xvi) Byron was expounding a serious thesis about the significance of Afghan influence on Persian civilization" (ODNB). When World War II broke out, Byron was employed as a sub-editor with the BBC, before his appointment as a special war correspondent; he was killed while travelling to Cairo to take up this position when his ship was struck by a torpedo.

        Farewell Spain - SIGNED by the author

      William Heinemann Ltd, London 1937 - 13.2 x 19.5cm fuchsia cloth boards with gilt stamped titles to the front and spine and blind stamped publisher's device to the rear; with beige endpapers (xii), 345 (1blank) pp. Signed and inscribed by O'Brien to fellow Heinemann author, Margery Allingham to the first blank page. Together with original unclipped dust jacket priced at 7s 6d net. The boards are very bright with a little mottling to the rare board and a slight tide mark along the spine. There is some bruising to the fore edge corners mainly the top rear corner and a couple of tiny dings to the fore edge of the lower board and back panel. Internally there is a little light foxing to the preliminaries and fore edge only. The inscription is dated August 1937 and we know the recipient was Marjery Allingham because the book was bought with a number of volumes from her library containing her name including a signed limited presentation copy of 'Challenge to the Reader' from Ellery Queen to Margery Allingham. The dust jacket is in original condition and without tape or other repairs. It is a little damp marked and wrinkled to the rear (see image) and is rubbed with minor loss to the corners and four small chips to the spine the largest being 8mm x 6mm, but none of the title has been lost. There are also a number of closed tears and a little creasing to the top and bottom edges. The dust jacket is now protected in a removable archival jacket. Kate O'Brien is increasingly regarded as a significant early 20th Century writer. Many of her books dealt with issues of female agency and sexuality in ways that were new and radical at the time. She was extremely popular in the 1930s and1940s before falling into obscurity for decades, only to be rediscovered as a key writer in the 1980s. An unusual, scarce signed volume. If you would like any further information or images, please do not hesitate to ask.    [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Whispering Statue

      First Edition. New York: Grosset & Dunlap, 1937. 217 pages. Blue cloth with orange lettering and Nancy Drew in silhouette on front cover. White endpapers with orange silhouettes.Rear of book lists The Betty Wales books by Margaret Wade and Books for Girls by L.M. Montgomery. Excellent book with tight binding, no marking in pages.BOOK SUMMARYNancy and her friends establish headquarters in a seaside yacht club to investigate strange happenings in a book store and the disappearance of a marble statue.AUTHOR NOTESCarolyn Keene was the pseudonym that Mildred Wirt Benson and Walter Karig used to write Nancy Drew books. The idea of Nancy Drew came from Edward Stratemeyer in 1929. He also had other series, that included the Hardy Boys, but he died in 1930 before the Nancy Drew series became famous. His daughters, Harriet and Edna, inherited his company and maintained Nancy Drew having Mildred Wirt Benson, the original Carolyn Keene, as the principal ghostwriter. During the Depression, they asked Benson to take a pay cut and she refused, which is when Karig wrote the books.Karig's Nancy Drew books were Nancy's Mysterious Letter, The Sign of the Twisted Candles, and Password to Larkspur Lane. He was fired from writing more books because of his refusal to honor the request that he keep his work as Carolyn Keene a secret. He allowed the Library of Congress to learn of his authorship and his name appeared on their catalog cards. Afterwards, they rehired Benson and she wrote until her last Nancy Drew book (#30) was written in 1953, Clue of the Velvet Mask.Harriet and Edna Stratemeyer also contributed to the Nancy Drew series. Edna wrote plot outlines for several of the early books and Harriet, who claimed to be the sole author, had actually outlined and edited nearly all the volumes written by Benson. The Stratemeyer Syndicate had begun to make its writers sign contracts that prohibited them from claiming any credit for their works, but Benson never denied her writing books for the series.After Harriet's death in 1982, Simon and Schuster became the owners of the Stratemeyer Syndicate properties and in 1994, publicly recognized Benson for her work at a Nancy Drew conference at her alma mater, the University of Iowa. Now, Nancy Drew has several ghostwriters and artists that have contributed to her more recent incarnations.

        2 ms. Briefe mit Paraphe.

      Paris, 1937. - Zusammen (1+2 =) 3 SS. auf 2 Bll. Gr.-4to. An seinen Vater über organisatorische Schwierigkeiten der untereinander zerstrittenen trotzkistischen Gruppen: "Ich habe Dein Telegramm erhalten. Ungeachtet meiner eigenen Einstellung zu Deiner Anordnung kann ich diese schon aus rein praktischen Gründen nicht ausführen. Ich denke, daß es selbst in militärischen Belangen Befehle gibt, die nicht ausgeführt werden können [.] Was Henri angeht [d. i. Henri Molinier, der Bruder des von Raymond Molinier, dem französischen Trotzkisten der ersten Stunde, mit dem Trotzki dann gebrochen hatte und der 1935 aus der Parti Ouvrier Internationaliste (POI) ausgeschlossen worden war], so wird er alleine gar nichts erreichen. Davon abgesehen wird keines unserer Mitglieder etwas mit einem Mann zu tun haben wollen, dessen Zuname Molinier ist; zudem würden sie dessen Bestrebungen wohl als Provokation erachten oder als eine weitere List im Geiste R[aymond] M[oliniers] [.]" (19. II.). - Mit dem Brief vom 22. Februar übersendet Sedow eine Reihe von (hier nicht beiliegenden) schriftlichen Bestätigungen, die Trotzki sich erbeten hatte, sowie einige Briefe und Berichte. "[.] Ich habe heute einen Brief von der Kommune erhalten - Durchschlag liegt bei, obwohl ich glaube, daß sie ihn Dir schon direkt geschickt haben. Der Brief ist arrogant, dumm und lügt. (Er lügt, weil keiner von uns mit Brosh [?] in Beziehung getreten war) [.] Aber er bestätigt auch andererseits, daß meine Überlegungen, ihm [d. i. Henri] den Auftrag nicht zu übertragen, richtig waren [.]".

        To Have and Have Not

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1937. First edition of Hemingway's classic novel about smuggling, intrigue, and love. Octavo, bound in full brown morocco, gilt titles and ruling to the spine, raised bands, gilt ruled to the front and rear panels, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. In fine condition. To Have and Have Not was Hemingway's first since A Farewell to Arms was published eight years earlier, follows the life and adventures of Harry Morgan from rum-running to revolution. Brimming with criticism directed at American capitalism and the bureaucracy of the Roosevelt administration, the novel explores social circumstances and situations in Key West, "that paradise of the 'haves' and purgatory of the 'have nots." "In To Have and Have Not, Hemingway for the first time showed an interest in a possible solution of social problems through collective action" (Hart, 327). Basis for the Howard Hawks film co-scripted by William Faulkner and featuring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall.

        PRIVATE PAPERS OF JAMES BOSWELL FROM MALAHIDE CASTLE, IN THE COLLECTION OF LT.-COLONEL RALPH HEYWARD ISHAM.

      N.P. n.p. (Ralph Heywood Isham printed by W.E. Rudge), 1928-1937. various sizes between 8vo. and large 4to. red paper-covered boards, paper spine labels, slipcases. various paginations. 21 volumes, complete. Printed in an edition limited to 570 numbered copies. (Haas no.153). One could call Boswell's diaries and private journals a kind of uncompleted "Life of Boswell," related in various ways to his other biographical enterprise. Certainly Boswell's habit of collecting concepts, conversations, characters and characteristics served him well later, and also make his private writings a source of information on personalities and social life in later 18th-century England. Unfortunately, most of these writings were long lost. They began to come to light again in the mid-1920's, and in 1926 the collector Ralph Heywood Isham (1890-1955) succeeded in acquiring a large number of Boswell papers, along with publishing rights, from Boswell's reluctant descendants. More discoveries of Boswelliana and their eventual purchase by Isham followed. Yale University acquired the entire Isham Boswell collection in 1949.Isham planned an edition from the beginning, and in 1928 engaged Geoffrey Scott as editor, W.E. Rudge to print the edition, and Bruce Rogers to design the books. Rogers describes his design thusly: "I have chosen a style flexible enough to accommodate the various papers, journals and documents comprised in the collection. No special effort has been made to secure an air of antiquity, but with the importation of a recent English reproduction of John Baskerville's famous eighteenth century types it was been possible to present the text in a form typographically harmonious with Boswell's individual mode of expression. The size of the different volumes is determined, as a rule, by the dimensions of the facsimile documents..." (Blumenthal p.105).The full set ran to eighteen volumes, published 1928-1934. G. Scott died after completion of vol. 6, and F.A. Pottle took over the editing. This set also includes The Private Papers of James Boswell... A Catalogue by Frederick A. Pottle & Marion S. Pottle, London and New York: Oxford University Press, 1931 (limited to 415 copies), Boswell's Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides with Samuel Johnson, LL.D., New York: The Viking Press, 1936 (limited to 790 copies), Index to the Private Papers of James Boswell, London and New York: Oxford University Press, 1937 (limited to 1250 numbered copies). These three volumes are bound in a similar fashion to the eighteen volume set.There is uneven fading to the spines (remember that the set was issued over a long period of time). Index lacks slipcase.
