      New York: Doubleday, Doran, and Company, 1938 First American edition, published one month following the British edition. Special issue, with leaf signed by du Maurier bound in by publisher. Publisher's burgundy cloth, with silver pictorial onlay decorated in metallic blue; in the original pictorial dust jacket illustrated by Rubin, with the front cover illustration depicting Mr. & Mrs. de Winters walking towards Manderley. A fine copy, with a hint of wear to the spine ends, else clean and bright; unclipped dust jacket, with some very light wear to the extremities, fresh panels. Overall, a bright and excellent copy. Rebecca is a suspenseful novel that opens with the iconic line, "Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again," which immediately establishes the dream-like, haunting quality of both the novel and its main setting. The plot is narrated by the second Mrs. de Winters, the new wife of wealthy widower Maxim de Winters, who used to live at his country estate Manderley with his first wife, Rebecca. Throughout the novel, the narrator is tormented by Rebecca's former nursemaid, the sinister Mrs. Danvers, who glorifies her former mistress and attempts to break up the newlywed de Winters. However, as the dust jacket explains, "To suggest the story in brief compass is impossible. The reader must experience the atmosphere of impending disaster, the exquisite love story with its emotion heightened by drama, the surprises, the superb moment of melodrama." Rebecca, du Maurier's most famous novel, was adapted into the notable 1940 film by Alfred Hitchcock, whose signature style also hinged on a suspenseful development that outshone the plot itself. A Haycraft-Queen Cornerstone.. Signed by Author. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        Meek Heritage [Hurskas kurjuus] [Signed]

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1938. First English language edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/very good. A Very Good + to Near Fine copy of Frans Eemil Sillanpaa's rare second novel -- his third book (mild age darkening to the spine and board extremities, some age fading to the topstain), in an about Very Good example of the rare dust jacket (chipping to spine ends and to flap fold extremities, some rubbing to the lower spine, small chip and a very small tear to lower edge of rear panel, tape repairs to interior at the spine center and at the front flap turn, in each case to repair a tear the height of the dust jacket, interior tape repair to rear flap turn and to bottom of the rear panel), SIGNED BY FRANS SILLANPAA on the half-title: "F. A. Sillanpaa". Sillanpaa won the 1939 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his deep understanding of his country's peasantry and the exquisite art with which he has portrayed their way of life and their relationship with Nature." Originally published in Finnish (1919), Meek Heritage ("Hurskas kurjuus") is one of only a few of Sillanpaa's works to have been translated to English [the others known to us being "Nuorena nukkunut" ("The Maid Silja") and "Ihmiset suviyössä" ("People in the Summer Night")], all three of which are rare to the market in first edition. Signed copies of his works in any language are quite scarce to rare, and signed copies in English translation, particularly of this early work, are hens' teeth. Altogether a Very Good + copy of Frans E. Sillanpaa's rare second novel, in the even rarer dust jacket, made even rarer in being SIGNED BY FRANS E. SILLANPAA. QUITE RARE.

      New York, 8 Dec. 1938. Letter. Normal creases from folding, about Fine. Superb and touching one-page letter in Kent's minuscule hand to his 25-year-old daughter Clara expressing his disappointment that she will not be spending Christmas with him. In full: "It was about 12 years ago when, out of consideration for your mother, I gave up claiming my family for Christmas Day and set New Years Day as our day for Christmas celebration. That this gave you children two Christmases we hoped was doubly nice for you; and that it gave us Christmas--though a week later--with my children was a happiness that we planned for and looked forward to. Only the absence far from home of Frances [his second wife whom he would divorce in 1939] or me or both of us has made a New Years' pass uncelebrated as the family Christmas. All this you know. And that, knowing it, you pass up your father's Christmas for a New Year at a friend's is something that I will not forget nor easily forgive. That Frances is deeply hurt at your 'previous engagement' when after two years of enforced absence she is at last home again and eager to make a Christmas for us all, is something I have read in her face as she read your letter. That is all I know about it. I will now wish you both a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year." SIGNED "Affectionately Father." The mixture of sadness and restrained anger is quite evident in this scarce and very personal autograph letter by one of the most famous American artists of the twentieth century. The bulk of Kent's papers were donated to the Smithsonian.

      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.

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..
