        Facing Mount (Mt.) Kenya - The Tribal Life of the Kikuyu

      Secker and Warburg, London 1938 - Signed B0014NO7OM First Edition signed and inscribed by Jomo Kenyatta, dated 1944, atop front free endpaper. xxvi, 339 pp. Index. Glossary. Eight pages of black and white photographic plates. One-page map of Gikuyu Country. "One of the first really competent and instructive contributions to African ethnography by a scholar of pure African heritage. Through his upbringing Mr. Kenyatta combines to an unusual extent the knowledge of Western ways and Western modes of thought with a training and outlook essentially African. As a first-hand account of a representative African culture, as an invaluable document in the principles underlying culture-contact and change; last, not least, as a personal statement of the new outlook of a progressive African, this book will rank as a pioneering achievement of outstanding merit." - from Introduction. Author was the founding father of Kenya and led the nation from its independence in 1963 until his passing in 1978. Somewhat above-average soiling and wear to tan fabric-covered boards. One-inch split in fabric between foot of backstrip and front board. Brilliant gilt lettering in green panels upon backstrip. Contents unmarked with occasional moderate soiling and minimal foxing. Binding tender in places but intact. Two openings, each less than one centimetre, to central portion of front hinge. A special copy of this important work.

        Tre Digtninger. Lykkens Kalosker. En rigtig Soldat. Det har Zombien gjort. [I.e. Three poetical Works: The Galoches of Furtune (fairy tale). The True Soldier (one act verse play). That was done by the Zobie (poem)].

      Kjøbenhavn [Copenhagen], 1938. Bound uncut and with the exceedingly scarce original printed wrappers in an exquisite recent pastiche binding of red morocco with richly gilt spine (Anker Kysters Eftf.), also preserving the original end-papers. With red super-ex-libris stamp to inside of front board. With the original ownership-signature of F.L. Höedt to original front free end-paper, with the date that he was given the book by Andersen: "12! Aug. 1938", i.e. shortly after the publication of the work. With a six-line signed presentation-inscription to the front wrapper and, quite exceptionally, a four-line continuation of the inscription to the back-wrapper, also in Andersen's hand. P. 17 with a marginal note, presumably in the hand of Höedt. Som soiling and damp-staining and some inkspots here and there. But all in all a finely preserved copy of this magnificent piece. Rare first edition, in the extremely rare original printed wrappers (only known i a few copies), with a magnificent signed presentation-inscription from Hans Christian Andersen, exceptionally written on both front- and back-wrapper and to one of Andersen's close friends, Høedt. The "Three Poetical Works" contains the first printing on one of Andersen's most important fairy tales, "The Galoches of Fortune", which is in fact his very first fairy tale for adults, here in the original version (it was later re-written for publication in Andersen's collected fairy tales 1949-50). It appeared while Andersen was still publishing his first fairy tale-collection, namely as early as 1838, and constitutes the 18th fairy tale that he publishes, predating e.g. "The Steadfast Tin Soldier". "The Galoches of Fortune" is of the utmost importance to the development of Andersen's fairy tale writing and his style of writing. It is not only his first grown-up fairy-tale, it is also the first, in which he works with dividing a fairy tale into chapters, here bound together by the galoche-motive as the red line. This highly important fairy tale was so important that even though it differs in style from the other fairy tales for children that appeared during the same period, it needed to be included in the great collection of Andersen's fairy tales that appeared in 1849-50. But for this publication, the fairy tale needed re-writing, both linguistically and stylistically, and thus it is only in the present publication that we have it in its original version."The Galoches of Fortune" was very important to Andersen himself, who mentioned it in several letters while he was working on it. In a letter to Ms. Hanck, dated March 16 1938, he talks about his "Three new poetical works"; "The first (i.e. The Galoches of Fortune") is a fairy tale and I think the most satirical one I have written as well as some of the most phantastic that our literature holds." - Clearly showing the importance that Andersen himself bestowed upon the work. In a letter to Henriette Hanck, dated February 10 1838, he emphasized that "The Galoshes of Fortune" were "not for children". As the fairy-tale is more in line with the "Hoffmann-like imagination" that we also see in "A Walking Tour" than with the spirit and style of the Fairy Tales for Children, Andersen himself also had some anxieties about it, however, and wrote to Frederik Læssøe on February 23 1938 "I'm working on a fairy-tale, but now regret these juggling acts with the golden apples of imagination".His anxieties world prove not to be completely unfounded. The work was widely read, but it also caused quite a bit of controversy. Kierkegaard, for instance, hated the work and harshly criticized its satirical features. As "The Galoches of Fortune" appear in May 1838, Kierkegaard's first work, "From the Papers of one Still Living", appears in September the same year. That work constitutes his long, sharp critique of Hans Christian Andersen, in which he ridicules Andersen and the genre of fairy tales in general. Kierkegaard furthermore denies that Andersen has any aptitude as a novelist and accuses him of not having "philosophy of life". Andersen had already heard rumours of the book on 30th August and felt martyred at the thought of what lay ahead.The dramatic poem "A Real Soldier" was submitted to the Royal Theatre in April 1836, but returned in May of the same year. THE LONG PRESENTATION-INSCRIPTION READS: (Front wrapper:) "Til: Høedt./ Mit første Foraarsgrønne dette Aar,/ Af mig du faar,/ jeg haaber at engang i Livets Sommer/ En Blomster-Flor, der kommer/ Venskabeligst H.C. Andersen."(Back wrapper:) "En Tid gik forrest blandt røde Du/ Og spotted Despoter ret af Sjælen./ Din Pen for russisk Gud du solgte nu/ gid snart vi maa Dig se paa/ Lygtepælen."[Translation - a literal one. it is written in the form of a poem, so the poetical features and rhymes are somewhat lost: (Front wrapper:) "For: Høedt./ My first spring-green this year/ I give to you,/ I hope that some time in life's summer/ a flower bloom will come/ With friendship H.C. Andersen."(Back wrapper:) "For a while You walked in the front-line amongst the Red/ and mocked despots right from the soul./ Your pen you now sold for Russian God/ I hope we'll get to see you soon on /the lamppost."FREDERIK LUDVIG HØEDT (1820-1885) was one of the most noted contemporaries of Hans Christian Andersen. Although 15 years his junior, he became a close friend of Hans Christian Andersen. He was merely 18 years old, when he received the present presentation-copy from Andersen, but he was already in the midst of his theological studies at the University of Copenhagen. He later chose philosophy, aesthetics and drama and quickly became one of the most famous Danish instructors and actors of his time. The highly interesting presentation-copy alludes both to Høegh's poetical interests, to his budding activities as an actor, and to his political observations.Apart from his university studies, the young aesthetically minded Høegh spent his youth writing poetry and visiting the salons, always fashionably dressed. He was a brilliant socialite and was considered a great and witty speaker on subjects such as art and philosophy, as well as a brilliant satirizer. He was also an eminent reciter and interpreter of especially Hans Christian Andersen. Later, as an author and director, he completely altered the way that theatre was done in Denmark. Bringing back ideas from Parisian stage art and having himself modern views on acting, he caused a revolution in the Danish theatre, which was not well liked by all. BFN 320.

      one page, 13 Court Oak Road, Harborne, Birmingham. n.d. [late 1938 - Addressed to "Dear Harold" [likely - but unprovably - Nicolson], asking him to consider giving a talk at Shrewsbury School: " . . . having boasted of knowing you, I must pay for it, by asking you to go. You will find the [staff - crossed through] boys intelligent and the staff charming, and - O how they drink." Auden spoke at the school on 30 October 1938; the Auden family moved to 13 Court Oak Road on or about 17 October; so all the evidence points to a date of early November 1938. Auden letters from before his move to the USA the following year are scarce. Folded for mailing else in excellent condition.

        Birds And Beasts In Africa, and The Angler In South Africa.

      London: Macmillan and Co, and Johannesburg: Hortors Ltd, 1938 and 1923.. Pair of Baden-Powell association copies, with a letter of authenticity from the scout association: 1) The Angler In South Africa. Inscribed "To The Chief Scout" by H.V. Marsh, the Assistant Commissioner of Natal during Baden-Powell's trip to South Africa in 1926. Octavo, pp.190. Bound in publisher's gray cloth over card boards, titles in black to upper and spine. With 34 photographic plate illustrations, and a fold-out appendix of fish, where they can be found, and what baits are most suitable for catching them. Binding shows some bumping to spine ends, case slightly shaken, spine sunned, rear joint showing a little gauze. Internally clean, with no signs of spotting. Marsh's ink inscription appears on the front flyleaf. 2) Birds and Beasts In Africa. Inscribed to "Miss Southey" from Baden-Powell, in thanks for work done for him in Nyeri, 1940. Octavo, pp.169. Bound in publisher's cream cloth, recased with top of spine laid down, black stamped African figure and titles in red to upper, titles in red to spine. Illustrated with colour frontispiece, seven other colour plates, and numerous in-text black and white illustrations. Cloth binding is a little tanned, with some bumping to corners. Internally clean, minor tanning to prelims, Baden-Powell's ink inscription to half title. An extraordinary pair of volumes, given to and given by Lord Robert Baden-Powell, adventurer and founder of the Scouts. H.V. Marsh was a prominent figure in the South African Scout movement, so much so that in 1963 the South African Scout Association founded the "The H V Marsh Award for Scout Journalism". The letter which accompanies the two volumes, from the Scout Association Archives, describes The Angler in South Africa as 'a most appropriate book' ? because 'if [Baden-Powell] had a spare moment during his busy life he liked to fish'. Without wishing to speculate too far, since Baden-Powell addresses Birds And Beasts In South Africa simply to "Miss Southey", there are several potential candidates amongst the descendants of Sir Richard Southey (1808-1901), first Treasurer and then Colonial Secretary in Natal. The dating of the gift is also interesting as Baden-Powell was to die in Nyeri the following year, in 1941. By this time, Nyeri had become associated with the Happy Valley set, which included Lady Idina Sackville, the infamous Jock Delves Broughton, and a number of other aristocrats.

        Waziristan, 1936-1937.

      Aldershot: Gale & Polden, Ltd., , 1938. The Problems of the North-West Frontiers of India and their Solutions. Octavo. Original sand textured card wraps, lettered in brown on the front wrap. Map to the text. A little rubbed on the wraps, a scatter of foxing, but overall very good indeed. First published in 1938, this is a pre-publication issue, designated "Private and Confidential" on the title page. The text is heavily annotated throughout on available blank spaces, and on extra leaves paper-clipped, or loosely inserted in place. These notes takes the form of a dialogue, with the comments of Sir John Coleridge, initialled at the end - whose opinion was evidently sought by Bruce - and Bruce's red-inked responses. Between them they constitute a full, and highly-informed, private debate between two serving officers with considerable experience of contemporary British frontier policy in the region in question. Bruce was educated at Wellington and the Royal Military College, Sandhurst. He joined the 20th Lancashire Fusiliers in 1896, transferring to the 24th Baluchistan Regiment in 1897. He saw service in the Boxer Rebellion in China in 1900, and in 1901 joined the Indian Political Department , in 1902 seeing action on the North West Frontier in operations against the Darwesh Khel Wazirs. He was Mentioned in Dispatches twice during WWI and was awarded the OBE for his war services. He served in Afghanistan in 1919, MID and awarded the CIE - Companion of the Indian Empire - going on to Waziristan, MID twice, and later awarded CBE and CSI - Commander of the Star of India. He was subsequently Chief Commissioner of Baluchistan through the 1920s, and retired in 1931. He wrote Waziristan 1936-37 and others on various tribes along the N.W.Frontier of India. Coleridge was a classmate of Bruce's at Wellington and Sandhurst. He was commissioned into the Indian Staff Corps in 1898, transferring to the 8th Gurkhas in 1900, and accompanied the Younghusband Mission to Tibet in 1903. Coleridge served on the Abor expedition on the north-east frontier of India in 1911-12, MID. He served in World War I, in 1916 joining the General Staff of the Egyptian Expeditionary Force. He commanded the 189th Brigade from October 1917, and then the 188th Brigade from December 1917, and was awarded the DSO and bar, and CMG. Following the War he returned to India as a General Staff Officer, carrying out a review of internal security measures, and of the new Indian Defence Force. He served as Assistant Commandant at the Quetta Staff College,1923-5, Military Secretary Army Headquarters, India,1926-30, and became commander of the Kohat District in 1930. During the North West Frontier operations of 1930-1 he commanded, as a Major-General, the Peshawar District. He was Military Secretary to the India Office,1933-6, and General Officer Commanding Northern Command, India, 1936-40 for which he was MID twice, retiring shortly afterwards. A remarkable document, offering a unique, detailed and frank critique of British policy on the North West Frontier in the early part of the twentieth century.a\

Je t'aime parce que tu as une vulve brûlante, et une bouche infatigable pour le baiser que je veux. Ouvre tes genoux: Je te couvre. Donne-moi tes lèvres et ta langue. Crispe tes dix doigts sur mes fesses. Foule tes seins contre mes seins. M'y voici; Nos vulves s'appliquent et se froissent et se heurtent. Étreins-moi comme je t'éteins! Elles clapotent, entends-tu? Mnasidika, nos jouissances se mêlent! Je suis ton amant! Je te possède ! Ah ! Si j'étais fille de Kypris, sans doute elle me donnerait la virilité, et nos tentatives acharnées ne seraient pas jeux de petits enfants. » (extrait) SUPERBE OUVRAGE ILLUSTRÉ PAR P.-E. BÉCAT.

        Uncle Tom's Children: Four Novellas

      New York: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1938. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good/very good. 317pp. Octavo [21 cm] A Story Press Book. Red cloth with title printed in blue within gray panels on front board and backstrip. Title page printed in red and black. Gentle bumping to spine ends and corners of boards; boards just a little bit splayed. The jacket is price-clipped, lightly chipped and rubbed at the edges, and is sunned at the jacket's spine. Overall a nice clean copy of this major work of twentieth century literature. First work from this influential American writer. These stories of racism in the rural south were shaped by Wright's childhood, and would later help shape the cultural attitudes that would launch the American Civil Rights movement. This volume consists of the four short works: Big Boy Leaves Home, Down by the Riverside, Long Black Song, and Fire and Cloud. "This is a book about hatreds. Mr. Wright serves notice by his title that he speaks of a people in revolt, and his stories are so grim that the Dismal Swamp of race hatred must be where they live. Not one act of understanding and sympathy comes to pass in the entire work." - Zora Neale Hurston
