        Chinese Calligraphy. An Introduction to its Aesthetic and Technique.

      London, Methuen, [1938]. Small 4to. Original cloth with dust-wrapper (price-clipped); pp. xiv, [2], 230, frontispiece and numerous text illustrations; wrapper a little frayed, spine darkened and with a few spots, otherwise very good; provenance: gift inscription, dated 1943 on front fly-leaf. Very rare first edition of one of the earliest and best informed books on the subject in the English language, written by a practitioner of the art. 'To summarize: In China, anything which can claim to be a work of art has some connexion, obvious or subtle, with calligraphy' (p. 220). The 'Chinese artist and writer Chiang Yee (1903-1977) came to Britain in 1933, where he lived and worked until 1955. During this time he wrote a successful series of illustrated travelogues using the pen name 'Yaxingzhe' or 'Silent Traveller'. The books describe Chiang Yee's life in London and Oxford during the turbulent years of the Second World War and record his travels to the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, Edinburgh and Dublin. Illustrated throughout, with his own unique ink and watercolour paintings, sketches and poems, they represent a significant artistic, as well as literary project. Notably among the first Chinese writers to write books in English in the first half of the 20th century, Chiang enjoyed a prolific publishing career in Britain, in which he also published two seminal texts on Chinese painting and calligraphy, memoirs of his childhood in China, and several children's books' (V&A Online Journal Issue No. 4 Summer 2012). The book was reprinted several times and in 1986, translated into Chinese and published in Shanghai.

Nur dann ist Deutschlands Größe und Zukunft gesichert. Die nationalsozialistische Rassenlehre und Rassengesetzgebung ist die Anwendung des uralten und ewig wahren ungeschriebenen Gesetzes der Natur, daß der Stärkere siegt und seine Art ewig lebt, daß aber der Schwächling untergehen und im Wege der Auslese erliegen muss. Es war daher die Aufgabe des nationalsozialistischen Gesetzgebers, durch den Erlass einer dieser einen naturgegebenen und geschichtlich erhärteten ewigen Wahrheit entsprechenden Gesetzgebung, das deutsche Blut vor fremdrassiger Vermischung zu schützen, festzulegen wer Deutscher, Mischling oder Jude ist, und die Erbgesundheit des deutschen Blutes durch Verhinderung erbkranker Ehen zu sichern, und damit durch gesetzlichen Zwang eine weitere Schädigung des Volkskörpers zu unterbinden . . .

        A Diary of the Travels of John Tillery.

      [London:] Corvinus Press,, 1938. With his fellow sufferers thro' Syria and Egypt while prisoners with Gen. Bonaparte, 1799. Octavo. Original white-cloth-backed buff paper boards hand-printed with pine-sprig and star motifs, spine lettered in gilt, dove vignette gilt to backstrip on front board, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, printed throughout on Silverflake paper. Mild toning to spine ends, top edges of both boards a little rubbed, upper outer corners slightly bumped, very mild soiling to front pastedown. An excellent copy. First and only edition, limited to 40 copies for personal distribution by Viscount Carlow as a Christmas gift, this copy inscribed on the presentation leaf "For Eileen, from Carlow, 1938". The text was printed verbatim from the original manuscript, which is now in the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. It is today inevitably uncommon, with three copies appearing at auction, the last in 1994, and 12 now confined to libraries. "John Tillery, an American sailor, served on board [HMS] Tigre under Sir Sidney Smith … Tillery and 18 shipmates were captured by the French at Acre on 21 March 1799. Initially they were well treated — Napoleon even sent them a bottle of Jew's Brandy and a share of his provisions. Tillery was interrogated by Napoleon himself and asked to identify the body of a dead marine. However, after Napoleon's failure at Acre, the prisoners were marched to Egypt and kept in appalling conditions … The prisoners were released on 22 December and returned to England on board HMS Theseus".

        Two Publication of the West Virginia Penitentiary: Work & Hope and Pen Revue

      Moundsville, West Virginia: West Virginia Penitentiary, 1938. Very Good. Octavos. Stapled illustrated wrappers. 40pp. and [36]pp. Very good with toning and general wear including a coupe tears at the edges, rubbing, and ring marks to one issue. The publications include Work & Hope, a monthly magazine published by the inmates of the West Virginia Penitentiary at Moundsville, and Pen Revue, a program for a 1938 stage production at the same facility. Work & Hope, published in January 1927, features a mix of institutional news, religious writings, poetry, jokes, and uplifting articles. The Pen Revue program prints the cast of the 34th annual production, entitled "Variety Manor." The production was staged and produced by L. Budd Haberstick, the cover artist of the Work & Hope issue included here, suggesting both these publications were likely his copies. Haberstick would later found The Little Theatre of Greenville, South Carolina with his wife in the early 1960s. The gothic style West Virginia Penitentiary at Moundsville, which operated from 1876 to 1995, is today opened for tours and as a haunted attraction during the fall. Both are rare. OCLC locates no copies of these exact publications, though a few scattered earlier copies of Work & Hope are held by West Virginia University, along with one later issue of Pen Revue.

        Original Art]: Thimble Theatre Starring Popeye

      1938 - Original comic strip artwork. Measuring 22" x 5.25". Pen and ink on artists board. Pin holes at the corners of each panel, bumping at the edges and darkening from glue residue, very good or better. A Thimble Theatre daily strip by E.C. Segar dated July 22, 1938 less than three months before his death in October at the age of 43 from liver disease. The strip shows Popeye investigated the mysterious disappearance of trees at a farm by an underground demons. Beneath the strip in blue pencil Segar has written a note to his assistant: "Diner is served! Put design on arm." Debuting in 1919, Thimble Theatre limped along until the introduction of the one-eye sailor in 1929. Popeye proved so popular he quickly became the star of the strip with his name added to the title. A wonderful example of original art by the creator of one of the best-known comic strip characters of all time.

        The Fifth Column and the First Forty-Nine Stories

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons,, 1938. Octavo. Original red calico-grain cloth, spine lettered in gilt on black panels, front cover with facsimile signature in black. With the dust jacket. Gilt to spine a little rubbed, internally fresh, in the jacket with slightly faded spine panel, head of spine creased and nicked, a little rubbing to extremities. An excellent copy. First edition, first printing. Inscribed by Hemingway on the front free endpaper, "To Cuyler Stevens with all good luck Ernest Hemingway", with Cuyler Stevens' bookplate to the front pastedown. Hemingway is known to have inscribed copies of several of his books to Ralph Cuyler Stevens (1903–1965), including Winner Take Nothing (the Goodwin-Neville copy), The Torrents of Spring, and a copy of The Sun Also Rises, which we have handled. Cuyler Stevens entered Princeton in 1922: "At Princeton he made a host of friends and was known for his story telling ability and wonderful sense of humor. Cuyler wrote for the Princeton Tiger, was a member of the Glee Club, Triangle Club, Nassau Herald Board and Campus Club. After graduation he went into the business world. But Cuyler was always interested in advertising, so he left the Prudential Insurance Co. in 1934 to join J. Walter Thompson Co. as a copy writer". In 1954 he "became vice-president of another large agency, Cunningham & Walsh, Inc., where he remained until he retired in in 1962 and took up residence in Spain" (Princeton Alumni Weekly, 1965). The exact circumstances under which he and Hemingway became acquainted is not known, although we have traced a possible connection during Stevens's stint at J. Walter Thompson — A. E. Hotchner references the company in a letter to Hemingway on 21 February 1951: "In the past two months I have talked to most everybody in the business... So you know the lode has been worked here's the people I've had dealings with Rieber at J. Walter Thompson … I think we're on solid ground and that we will keep the name okay with healthy payments to Dr. Hemingstein" (DeFazio, p. 118). "Dr. Hemingstein" was a persona assumed by Hemingway on various occasions, sometimes as "Dr. Hemingstein the Philospher", "old Dr. Hemingstein, that masterful deducer" and other variations.

        The Happy Island

      Farrar and Rinehart New York (1938) - First Edition. Robert Graves dustjacket art. Extremely scarce Powell title. "Prudence Bly, the night club queen, came from Silver City to take New York by the throat - and did. But Jefferson Abbott, a confident young playwright from her home town, appeared and Prudence fell in love. Then began the struggle between reality and the siren call of glamour". A contemporary New York Times review states: "There are night-club singers, radio artists, playwrights, musicians. There are dilettantes and professional beauties. There are silly little bourgeois couples, clutching feverishly at the coat tails of these luminaries. Gyrating aimlessly from bar to bar, from night club to night club, from one lush party to another, these characters of Miss Powell's have a certain featureless vitality. As they gossip and backbite, betraying one another's secrets and stealing one another's loves, they hold one half mesmerized by their extremities of caddishness. Somehow or other, however, Miss Powell's material has betrayed her. One is left with a covert suspicion that it was hardly worth her time." Very Good, rental price in ink at top front endpaper, ink stain at top page edge, in dustjacket with unfortunate 1 1/2 inch piece lacking at upper mid spine, some shallow chipping and wear at edges.

        De man zonder lijf. (Met acht houtsneden van Frans Masereel, waarvan vijf paginagroot).

      Antwerpen, De Sikkel, 1938. Verguld zwart heelleder met blinddrukversiering op voor- en achterplat. Kop verguld. 72 p. Gedrukt in een oplage van 700 genummerde exemplaren. Ondanks enkele minieme krasjes op de rug een zeer fraai exemplaar.l Eén van de 100 luxe-exemplaren op Pannekoek, gesigneerd door Teirlinck en Masereel. Binnen die luxe-editie is dit exemplaar (nummer 9) waarschijnlijk één van de weinige exemplaren in een vollederen band (zo de band niet uniek is). De blinddruk op het voorplat (een masker en een dobbelsteen) en op het achterplat (een 'duveltje uit een doosje': een poppetje dat uit de dobbelsteen tevoorschijn komt) is gebaseerd op het door Masereel ontworpen omslagvignet van de ingenaaide editie. Dit exemplaar heeft een handgeschreven, gesigneerde opdracht van de auteur op de Franse titel: 'aan Gaston DeClerck/ Brugge 15-2-1949/ Herman Teirlinck'. Bovendien is dit exemplaar verrijkt met, los inliggend, een ORIGINELE TEKENING van Masereel in oostindische inkt, rechtsonder gemonogrammeerd 'FM' en getiteld 'man zonder lijf'.Op 20 maart 1940 schreef Masereel aan Teirlinck: 'Ik fabriceer momenteel een gebonden uitgave (echt kalfsleer!) van al je toneelwerken, althans de vijf die ik voor De Bock heb geillustreerd... Ik denk dat het een mooi boek wordt - even mooi als het exemplaar dat je gezien hebt - dat zal opgesierd woorden met 5 originele aquarellen en een groot aantal originele tekeningen voor schutbladen, Franse titels, het einde van bedrijven, enz.'. Of die gezamelijke luxe-editie ooit is verschenen weten we niet, maar de originele tekening van Masereel die is bijgevoegd heeft wel degelijk betrekking op het boek. Misschien heeft Gaston de Clerck dit exemplaar zelf laten binden en verrijken?Gaston de Clerck was een Brugs bibliofiel, wiens collectie in 1957 in Brussel geveild is. In de jaren veertig zat hij in het bestuur van Club Brugge, de befaamde voetbalclub.

        Alesso Baldovinetti: A Critical and Historical Study

      Yale University Press, New Haven 1938 - Red cloth covers with gilt title on cover and lengthwise along spine. vi, 253 pp. 162 bw plates. Kennedy spends much effort prying the reputation of Baldovinetti loose from the bonds of Berenson and Vasari, whom had shackled him to the murky depths of style and skill. Besides this, the reviewer from 1938 noted that the equally great purpoose of this book is to shed new light of the whole sphere of early Renaissance art, with mention of many other artists and how they contributed to the whole. Extremely scarce. The book received rave reviews from Elizabeth Wilder in her review, published in the 1939 Art Bulletin. VG, slightest curves to the covers, perhaps it was titled on a shelf for a very long time [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        OUR TOWN

      New York: Coward-McCann, Inc.((1938)). First Edition, Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and a touchstone of American theater. After reading this play, Albert Einstein wrote a letter to Wilder comparing OUR TOWN to Homer's ODYSSEY and Shakespeare's HAMLET, stating: "That an American of the present day can create with such delicacy and detachment touches the soul like a miracle." This copy is INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author upon publication on the title page: "For Jack from Thornton/with all his best/Jay Six/April 1938." Jay Six was a ranch in southeast Arizona that Wilder frequented. Two years prior, in 1936, John Fitzgerald Kennedy and his older brother Joe had their first paying jobs at the ranch. Alas, THAT Jack was not there in 1938., Hardcover, Tight, crisp copy with the typical mild sunning along the cloth edges; bookplate of someone named Comstock on the front pastedown hidden by the inside dustwrapper flap. The dustwrapper is complete but for a small chip at the heel of the spine affecting the last two letters of "Coward" and "McCann." Other than that there are just a few scrapes to the rear panel and light edgewear. Near Fine in a Very Good dustwrapper

        Alone.

      New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons, 1938 - Octavo. Original full blue morocco, raised bands millet gilt to spine forming compartments ruled in gilt, titles direct to second and fourth gilt, two-line rules to covers gilt, inner dentelles gilt, top edge gilt, blue page-marker, marbled endpapers. A few very light markings to covers. Entirely unopened. A superb copy. Title-page printed in blue and black, blue headpieces by Richard E. Harrison. First edition, signed limited issue, of Byrd's autobiography; number 122 of 225 copies signed by the author on the limitation page and printed on rag paper. Richard Evelyn Byrd (1888-1957) graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1912. "In 1919 he took charge of the navigational aspects of the navy's first transatlantic flight In 1925 he commanded the naval unit of the D. B. MacMillan expedition to Greenland and became the first to fly across the Greenland ice cap. With the experience gained Byrd prepared himself to become the first to take an aeroplane over the North Pole" (Howgego). His team reached King's Bay on 29th April 1926 only to find Amundsen and his team likewise preparing for a transpolar flight; "When [Amundsen's dirigible] the Norge arrived at King's Bay on 7th May competition reached a new height", though, working solidly for fourteen hours, it was Byrd's team that were the first to get their dirigible in the air. They returned triumphantly to New York a month later and Byrd, following Amundsen's advice, began preparing for another polar flight, this time over the South Pole. Setting out from Hoboken in August 1928, Byrd and his team travelled south and made for the Ross Ice Shelf, where they established base camp (known as "Little America"). After several preliminary reconnaissance missions, Byrd and his companions eventually reached the pole on 29th November 1929, and despite "massive turbulence" were able to circle for eleven minutes checking sextant readings. Another expedition in 1932 was likewise successful and "did much to stimulate official United States government interest in Antarctica, and in 1939 Byrd was back in the Antarctic at the head of one of most ambitious teams ever to work on the continent". An exceptional copy of Byrd's autobiography, rare thus. Howgego IV B56-57 [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        A Diary of the Travels of John Tillery. With his fellow sufferers thro' Syria and Egypt while prisoners with Gen. Bonaparte, 1799.

      [London:] Corvinus Press, 1938 - Octavo. Original white-cloth-backed buff paper boards hand-printed with pine-sprig and star motifs, spine lettered in gilt, dove vignette gilt to backstrip on front board, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, printed throughout on Silverflake paper. Mild toning to spine ends, top edges of both boards a little rubbed, upper outer corners slightly bumped, very mild soiling to front pastedown. An excellent copy. First and only edition, limited to 40 copies for personal distribution by Viscount Carlow as a Christmas gift, this copy inscribed on the presentation leaf "For Eileen, from Carlow, 1938". The text was printed verbatim from the original manuscript, which is now in the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. It is today inevitably uncommon, with three copies appearing at auction, the last in 1994, and 12 now confined to libraries. "John Tillery, an American sailor, served on board [HMS] Tigre under Sir Sidney Smith Tillery and 18 shipmates were captured by the French at Acre on 21 March 1799. Initially they were well treated &#151; Napoleon even sent them a bottle of Jew's Brandy and a share of his provisions. Tillery was interrogated by Napoleon himself and asked to identify the body of a dead marine. However, after Napoleon's failure at Acre, the prisoners were marched to Egypt and kept in appalling conditions The prisoners were released on 22 December and returned to England on board HMS Theseus".
