      London: Cassell and Company, Limited,, 1938. Octavo. Original red and black patterned boards, titles to spine gilt, black endpapers, top edge dyed black. Spine a little faded, lightly rubbed at extremities, lower joint cracked between rear free endpaper and rear blank, faint spotting to edges of text block and title pages. First edition, first impression of the second novel Rand published in the West. The reception of her first - We The Living (1936) - had been critically ambiguous and, in terms of sales, poor. So much so that no American publisher could be persuaded to publish this book. Indeed only after the success of The Fountainhead and the end of the Second World War did Anthem appear in an American edition. The Cassell printing, preceding by 8 years any other, is a very uncommon book and rare in the dust jacket.

Lane was the daughter of Laura Ingalls Wilder, author of the "Little House" bo oks. Books inscribed by Rose Lane Wilder or Laura Ingalls Wilder [1867-1957] are very uncommon. Rose Wilder Lane [1886 -1968], Danbury, Connecticut) was an American journalist, travel writer, novelist, & political theorist & the only surviving chil d of Laura Ingalls Wilder, now the better known writer. Lane's accomplishments remain however quite remarkable. She is considered a seminal force behind the American Libertarian Party. By the time the first Little House book was published by Laura I ngalls Wilder 1932, Rose had already published 10 works of biography & fiction. The daughter's influence on the Mother's work is unmistakable & her contribution to the entire Little House series well documented as Rose collaborated multidimensionall y in the crafting of the entire series..

Important collection of Churchill's speeches, 1928-38, on the dangers of a re-armed Germany. A contemporary review in the journal of the Royal Institute for International Affairs remarked that "apart from their literary graces" Churchill's speeches were remarkable because of "the restraint of their language" in view of the "blunders and inaccuracies" of the Government and for his technical mastery, "There seems to be nothing from Naval Strategy to the jigs and tools in an aircraft factory... on which Mr. Churchill is not an expert.

        While England Slept

      G. P. Putnam's Sons, New York 1938 - This is the precursor to Churchill's great war speeches. This is the first U.S. edition, first printing in dust jacket. The British first edition was given the politically palatable title "Arms and the Covenant". The U.S. title is a bit more honest. The book contains a collection of speeches spanning the years 1928 to 1938 criticizing British foreign policy and warning prophetically of the coming danger. The world remembers the resolute war leader to whom the British entrusted their fate, but it is easy to forget the years leading up to the war which Churchill spent persistent, eloquent, and largely unheeded. Churchill bibliographer Frederick Woods called this edition "probably the most crucial volume of speeches that he ever published". As testimony to the book's importance, a copy of While England Slept lay on "President Roosevelt's bedside table, with key passages, including an analysis of the president's peace initiative, underscored." (William Manchester's The Last Lion, Volume II, p.305) Offered here is a very good first edition, first printing in a first printing dust jacket. The blue cloth binding is square, clean, and tight with sharp corners, bright silver lettering and red banners, and virtually no wear. The sole exterior flaw is an apparent binding error - a slight, curving crease to the cloth to the upper third of the spine and a slight blemish in the red title banner just below the second line of the title. This is a regrettable but honest flaw that is clearly not the product of wear. The contents are clean and tight. We find no spotting. A single previous owner's name is inked to the ffep. The red-stained top edge remains notably dark and unfaded, marred only by a small stain at the fore edge. The untrimmed fore edge and bottom edges are age-toned, but otherwise quite clean. The correct first printing dust jacket is bright and clean, featuring vivid, entirely unfaded red color on the jacket spine. The jacket is also unclipped, still bearing the original $4.00 price on the front flap. There is modest overall soiling and wear to the jacket extremities, with shallow chipping to the edges, mild wear to the hinges and flap folds, and a few short, closed tears. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A107.2.a, Woods/ICS A44(b.1). Langworth p.193. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

This is one for the vaults. & "Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again . . . " The author's most famous book, a literary classic, never out of print, and the inspiration for Alfred Hitchcock's Oscar-winning film. " If Daphne du Maurier had written only Rebecca, she would still be one of the great shapers of popular culture and the modern imagination. Few writers have created more magical and mysterious places than Jamaica Inn and Manderley, buildings invested with a rich character that gives them a memorable life of their own." (goodreads) Until recently, Rebecca "was mostly viewed as an archetypal piece of romantic fiction, a twentieth-century rewriting of Jane Eyre in which a poor young woman falls in love with a moody, upper-class man, but is tyrannised by the mysteries of his country house. . . . [Du Maurier] intended it as a study in jealousy", [and] was trying to explore the relationship between a man who is powerful and a woman who is dependent. In recent years, Rebecca has increasingly been read as a key example of Female Gothic, and as a text that explores both the painful construction of feminine identity, and the instability of patriarchal power and social class."
