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

      Privately printed for Rolla Bishop Watt by Western Printing Company, Salt Lake City, UT 1938 - SIGNED. 294 pp. Quarto [28 cm] Green cloth with gilt stamped titles on the front board and backstrip. 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 An unpublished play about Charles Lee and the American Revolution that was later adapted into a 1942 novel published by Farrar and Rinehart.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 This play was apparently unpublished and possibly unproduced.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. .

        The Long Valley

      Viking, 1938. First Edition, First Printing. Cloth. Very Good/Very Good. A First Edition of this Steinbeck classic in the original dustjacket. With "first published in September 1938" on the copyright page. The book is square and solid with an attractive red topstain on the top edges, bound in cream buckram with burn orange cloth covers. With 303 pages, the book shows overall darkening on the covers, edges and endpapers but the interior is quite clean. The endpapers show the aging of the glue used during publication and a previous owner's name. The dustjacket is complete with the original price ($2.50) and a small sales sticker with the same price from the D.W. Robinson Co. in Los Angeles. Overall the dustjacket shows wear and darkening with a split between the spine and back panel held together with (what a previous owner claims is) acid-free tape. We have added an archival plastic dustjacket which protects the integrity of the fragile but original dustjacket. Overall an inmportant book in the original cloth that shows its age and poor quality of publishing materials but still a special copy. Only 8,000 copies of this book were printed.

Black and white photographic frontisplate of author. First published in German in the same year.

The purpose of the present work is to provide a remedy for the present perilous impasse before it is too late to avert disaster." - from dust jacket.

Bold dust jacket art depicts British/French/US spear piercing a Nazi swastika. Unmarked. Binding tight. Moderate wear to book. Somewhat above-average wear to dust jacket which is now preserved in mylar. Moderate age-toning near endpapers. Moderate foxing to edges and back half of dust jacket.

        Photo Album]: Belgian Girls in the 1930s

      Brussels 1938 - Oblong quarto. Measuring 8" x 12". String-tied gray cloth over paper boards. Contains 220 sepia toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1.5" x 2" and 5" x 7", some with captions in French. The album is near fine with some edgewear with near fine or better photographs.A photo album kept by a Belgian girl from 1932 to 1938 featuring seaside vacations, girlish goofing around, and even trips to visit soldiers later in the album. The collection is full of splendid snapshots of girls enjoying the company of their friends posing, acting silly, and visiting family. The seaside photos show the girls in their bathing suits, dancing with boys, and sunbathing on the Belgian coast. There are photos of the women posing by Barrage de la Gileppe, a gravity dam that established the standard for modern European dam systems. They also went to the Cambre Abbey in Brussels, stopping on the grounds of the abbey to give each other rabbit ears, and the coastal town of Ostende, where they took numerous photos, a few in bathing suits suggest a pinup girl style. In 1936 they visited the barracks of Chartreuse de Liege which had recently been decommissioned and turned into a "simple barracks" and would eventually serve as a military hospital towards the end of World War II. Here we see the women of the album posing with soldiers as well as group photos of the troops in full uniform. One photo shows a small group of soldiers with one of them playing an accordion.An interesting collection of images of carefree young women in Belgium before the devastation caused by the events of World War II.

      Mullinger, The Westmeath Examiner [1938]. First edition - limited to 50 copies. 8vo. Ten pages stapled into card wrappers, lightly sunned at edges, with the front wrapper serving as title page. With three pencilled corrections in the author's hand. Illustrated with two fairly poorly reproduced photographs of Tristernagh Abbey, and with the author's initialled complements slip laid-in (this last from the 1970s, to judge from the handwriting). Some superficial creasing, and a tiny touch of spotting to several blank leaves. A very good copy of an extremely scarce pseudonymous publication, one of the most fugitive Betjeman items. A spoof biographical study in verse of Sir John Piers, a notorious bankrupt who was tried in 1807 on charges of criminal conspiracy for making a 'diabolical wager' to seduce Lord Cloncurry's wife. Written whilst Betjeman was staying at Packenham Hall, Ireland with Edward and Christine Longford and printed by the local paper.. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Very Good.
