        The War the Infantry Knew 1914-1919.A Chronicle of Service in France and Belgium with The Second Battalion His Majesty's Twenty-Third Foot, The Royal Welch Fusiliers: founded on personal records, recollections and reflections, assembled, edited and partly

      The First UK Printing published by P.S.King and Son Ltd in 1938.The BOOK is in near FINE condition. Original red cloth with gilt titling to the spine and the initials of the regiment gilt to the upper board.Covers are clean apart from a tiny black dot to the spine.Light pushing to the spine ends with a little fading and tiny splitting at the spine tips.A hint of toning to the text block.Free from inscriptions,erasures and markings. The endpapers are only very slightly tanned.27 leaves of sketch-maps bound in at the rear.The very scarce First edition,being one of just 500 copies privately produced by the author.As such this remains an extremely elusive title. The battalion included the authors of two of the most famous literary accounts of the Great War, Graves and Sassoon, with the latter contributing a chapter to the present work entitled "A Subaltern's Service in Camp and in Action," covering the period from March 12th to April 16th, 1917, which is described as, "An early draft of pages of Memoirs of an Infantry Officer." Graves offered to contribute, but Dunn was not an admirer of Goodbye to all that, and declined his offer. Graves is mentioned, disparagingly, a handful of times in the text. Dunn's is an extraordinary book, in the Face of Battle John Keegan described it as "one of the most interesting and revealing books of its type a genuinely truthful and fascinating picture of the war as it was for the infantry." Compiled in diary form from the reminiscences of around 50 members of the Battalion, it is without doubt the most authentic account of the experience of the Western Front at Battalion level. Collectible. Ashtonrarebooks welcomes direct contact.

Hawkins. The view is from the east, stretching from the South Shore Country Club in the south along the lake to the Edgewater Beach Hotel in the north.

An excellent set. Offprints of five ornithological papers by Ernst Mayr (1904-2005) that appeared in the American Museum Novitates. Notes on New Guinea Birds IV is inscribed on the front wrapper by Mayr to Hubert Lynes (1874-1942), admiral and noted ornithologist: "To Admiral Lynes with Kindest regards, E. Mayr." In 1929, Mayr, who was already in New Guinea on behalf of Walter Rothschild, joined the Whitney South Sea Expedition and with it travelled to the Solomon Islands. Organised by the American Museum of Natural History, the expedition visited thousands of Pacific islands between 1921-1932 to study and collect birds of the region; it subsequently provided the AMNH with the largest ornithological collection in the US. In 1931, Mayr was hired as curator of the ornithological department of the AMNH to continue his studies of the specimens collected during the expedition. These papers are five of more than a 100 on avian taxonomy that Mayr wrote while at the AMNH.

        The Sword in the Stone

      London: Collins. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. EXCEEDINGLY RARE PAGE PROOFS FOR THE FIRST EDITION OF WHITE'S CLASSIC; precedes the publication of the first edition. "When T.H. White produced The Sword in the Stone (1938), Arthurian fiction took a giant step forward. White ignored the traditional Arthurian storyline, using stock characters and circumstances only when he needed them, and developed an Arthurian world of his own. The tale still reflects the contemporary mores of the 1920s and 1930s… and is wonderfully anachronistic in its creation of the Arthurian world, using modern images and inventions when convenient. In so doing White depicts an acceptable Arthurian existence, a world beyond time where Merlin has taken young Wart (Arthur) for his training and preparedness for the world. "White's book was the first in a series of novels that became darker, more subtle and less whimsical, partly because of the onset of WWII but also because of the increasing tragedy of the subject matter. The Sword in the Stone, The Witch in the Wood (1939) and The Ill-Made Knight (1940) were later revised and enlarged, with the addition of 'The Candle in the Wind', as The Once and Future King (1958), to many still the definitive Arthurian volume of the 20th century. The book served as the basis for the stage musical Camelot (1960; movie 1967) and Disney's animated movie The Sword in the Stone" (Clute and Grant, The Encyclopedia of Fantasy). 339 leaves printed on rectos only, made in preparation for the first edition. With head- and tail-piece illustrations by White throughout. London: Collins, 1938. Octavo, twentieth-century half morocco with original wrappers bound-in. A fine copy. SCARCE.

        Journals of John D. Lee, 1846-7 and 1859

The extremities are mildly bumped, rubbed, and faded. The tipped in portrait at page six is missing, with remnants of glue on the page. The dust jacket has a couple of small red ink stains on the front panel, is lightly rubbed, and has a number of short chips and closed tears in the edges. With sunning to the jacket's spine, and a piece of tape on the reverse, at the head of the spine. Otherwise a sharp copy of this scarce title. Inscribed by the editor to fellow historian C.M. Drury. One in an edition of 250. This copy is out of series, and the limitation page states this copy to be an exchange copy. A professional curmudgeon, Charles Kelly was the first to wade into the murky water of John D. Lee. Kelly acquired the diaries from the Lee family and from Rolla Watt, who was the nephew of W.W. Bishop, the Nevada lawyer who represented Lee at trial. For all of Kelly's spite, he was surprisingly fair to Lee and paved the way for other historians, most notably Juanita Brooks.

        [Manuscript]: Morning in America: Play in Three Acts, Six Scenes, and an Epilogue

      Forest Hills, Long Island: Willard Wiener. [circa 1938]. Quarto. Carbon leaves typed rectos only in brad-bound unprinted wrappers. Author's phone number handwritten on the title page, wrappers quite worn, first leaf partly pulled away, overall good or better, internally very good. An unpublished play about Charles Lee and the American Revolution that was later adapted into a 1942 novel published by Farrar and Rinehart. The denouement in the third act revolves around the Battle of Monmouth in Freehold, New Jersey. This play was apparently unpublished and possibly unproduced. The only mention we can find of the play is in a single record of a program for the WPA Federal Theatre Program (held in Germany!). OCLC records no copies of this script, and the play version is apparently unrecorded. .
