White, T.H.
London: Collins, 1938. First edition. Near fine in very good jacket.. Original black cloth, spine lettered in white. In original unclipped (8s. 6d.) black-and-white pictorial dust jacket. Illustrated with line drawings by the author. 340 pages. Faint spotting to cloth with light foxing to text block edges and a few leaves. Jacket with tape repairs to verso, spine toned with remarkably little edgewear. Presents well. First printing of White's inimitable fantasy of the boyhood of King Arthur. Described by the author as "a preface to Malory," and planting the seeds of the full Arthurian tragedy with a sure and light hand, THE SWORD IN THE STONE was later revised for publication as the first part of White's full sequence, THE ONCE AND FUTURE KING. Aggressively anachronistic, magnificently learned, and imbued with a passionate longing for humanity to love learning and be good to all the inhabitants of the earth. A lovely copy of the original unrevised first edition.

Pascoaes, Teixeira de und Albert Vigoleis Thelen (Übers.)
Zürich und Leipzig, Rascher Verlag, 1938. XXIV, 324 Seiten mit Potraitfrontispiz. Gr.-8° goldgeprägter Originalleinwand. Die schon sagenumwobenen deutsche Erstausgabe von Pascaoas (1877-1952) "Sao Paolo bei der Livaria Tavares Martins Porto." in der Übertragung von Vogoleis Thelen. "Thelen hatte Pascoaes' wichtigste, 1934 erschienene Biographie "Paulus, der Dichter Gottes", entdeckt und bewarb sich im Juni 1935 bei Pascoaes um seine Übersetzung. Pascoaes stimmte zu, Thelen übersetzte das Buch (übrigens auch ins Niederländische) und sorgte sich um dessen Publikation. Es erschien nach vielen Mühen 1938 in der Schweiz. Von 1938 bis 1947 lebten Thelen und seine Frau Beatrice, die vor den Nazis durch Europa flohen, auf Einladung Pascoaes' in Portugal, wo Thelen sich weiter um Pascoaes' Werk bemühte (persönlich getroffen haben sie sich erst am 1. September 1939) - insgesamt hat Thelen, sein unbestrittenes Verdienst, vier Bücher Pascoaes' übersetzt und das Werk des Portugiesen in Europa, vor allem in den Niederlanden, bekanntgemacht. Eine dreibändige Pascoaes-Biographie mit dem Titel "Die Gottlosigkeit Gottes" soll Thelen sogleich nach ihrer Niederschrift vernichtet haben." H.L. Arnold. Das Buch ist aufgrund der geringen Auflage von größter Seltenheit. Stehkanten und Kapitale etwas berieben, insgesamt gutes Exemplar.

A very good copy. First edition, first printing of the author's first book. Presentation copy with a warm and lengthy inscription from the author to fellow architect Robert George Cerny (1908-1985), dated November 22, 1959. Fuller begins, "To Bob Cerny, with whom it has been my privilege and pleasure to work on the emergent....". Unfortunately, the combination of Fuller's messy handwriting and unique vocabulary and syntax make it difficult to grasp the full meaning of the inscription, and it's unclear how the two knew each other. Nine Chains to the Moon is a collection of forty-four essays on various topics in the history of science and technology, many of them exploring progressive design and the concept Fuller called "ephemeralization", or doing more with less, which he believed would create higher living standards despite population growth. The title, a metaphor for co-operation, refers to the notion that if all the humans on Earth stood on each other's shoulders, they could reach the Moon.

Hi, This lot is the rare 1938 Original Hardback. The FIRST year of the new style hardback. This book is in good condition for a 1938 which being the first one usual has the odd issue. This book has nice boards, a little but dark as is the gilt, I wouldnt say it was faded as normal more darkened , the spine gilt is there too which is normal faded away. There is a nick to, to the top of the spine cloth. The hinges are good, not springy but not broken and hold the boards up well, internally the pages are clean, a bithday not to the first right hand blank page written in 1945. The pages are clean, the photos are nice and a decent page block. A respectable, 100% original 1938. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Hi, This lot is the rare 1938 Original Hardback. The FIRST year of the new style hardback. This book is in very nice condition, which is amazing for a 1938 as they usually come pretty ropey. This book has strong gilt to the front and spine (spine is usually faded) , the hinges are both strong and the pages inside are nice and clean, one of the better 1938s , the only defect is a small name to the first right hand page and some lightening to the cloth at the base of the spine.

Benchley, Robert (starring); Roy Rowland (director); Jack Chertok (screenwriter); Marie Blake (starring)
Beverly Hills, CA: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1938. Temporary Complete script for the 1939 short film, one of several classic shorts featuring the great Algonquin Round Table humorist Robert Benchley. A stereotypically clueless husband is left in charge to show his apartment to a prospective subletting couple while his wife is at church, and manages to botch the job in all the expectedly silly ways. "How to Sub-let" is the second-to-last of beloved Algonquin Round Table humorist Robert Benchley's "How to" shorts, which included the 1935 Academy Award winning "How to Sleep," with his signature (and untrue) affinity for being lazy throughout the script. Set in an apartment in an unknown city. Blue titled wrappers, noted as TEMPORARY COMPLETE on the front wrapper, rubber-stamped copy No. 946 and production No. 89665, dated 11/1/38, with credits for comedian Robert Benchley. Title page integral with the second page of the text, with credits for comedian Robert Benchley, as issued. 13 leaves, with last page of text numbered 12. Mimeograph duplication. Pages Fine, wrapper Very Good plus bound with two gold brads.

Keller, Helen
Garden City, NY: Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc, 1938. First edition of Keller's journals. Octavo, original cloth. Association copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper to publishing executive and editor, "To Mr. Harry Maule, With grateful thanks for his loyal friendship, Cordially, Helen Keller, April 4th 1938." In near fine condition. Foreword by Nella Braddy. Helen Keller's Journal: 1936-1937 was written shortly after Anne Sullivan, Keller's companion from childhood and beloved teacher died. "It is a remarkable book. And it is that not only in the sense in which everything about Helen Keller's mastery of life is remarkable but in a deeper and more personal sense of its own. It will be of interest, naturally, to every one who has followed the progress of Helen Keller's life in her other books; but it will be of interest also to men and women who have not read her earlier writings. Its answer to the query as to Miss Keller's physical conditions of living without her teacher-companion is implicit and inclusive: she has gone on just as before" (New York Times).

Bellavista, 1938, 430 p. ; 13 x 19 x 4 cm Edwin Cerio (1875 - 1960) è stato un ingegnere, scrittore e naturalista italiano. Figlio di Ignazio ed Elisabetta Grimmer, dalla nativa Capri si spostò prima a Napoli per frequentare l'Istituto Nautico, e poi a Genova dove si iscrisse all'università presso la facoltà di Ingegneria laureandosi in ingegneria navale e meccanica. A inizio secolo si trasferì a Kiel e nella città tedesca ebbe modo di mettere in pratica le nozioni apprese, progettando per la Krupp navi militari e sommergibili. Più tardi, dopo essere stato in Spagna e Inghilterra, lasciò l'Europa per il Sud America, dove soggiornò in Argentina, Brasile, Cile, Paraguay e Uruguay. Lì fu il progettista della linea ferroviaria transandina che metteva in comunicazione le due capitali Santiago e Buenos Aires, e nella capitale argentina nel 1907 si sposò con la giornalista e scrittrice Elena Hosmann, con la quale ebbe una figlia, Laetitia. Nel 1913, Cerio fece ritorno in Italia. Restò sotto diversi aspetti nel mondo della marina: brevettò un lanciamissili per sommergibile che vendette al governo italiano e lavorò per l'Ansaldo, scrivendo anche per il periodico Rivista marittima. Due anni dopo divenne direttore della Compagnia italiana per i traffici con l'Oriente e della Società italiana brevetti. Trasferitosi a Torino nel 1918, fu progettista per la FIAT fondando anche un giornale senza molto successo. Dopo questo ventennio intraprendente e frenetic … [Click Below for Full Description]
