        An Oxford University Chest.

      4to. Original blue cloth back paper-covered boards; with photographs by Moholy-Nagy; with supplied scarce dustwrapper which is a little chipped and creased with a few closed tears. First edition, author's presentation copy inscribed on the front free endpaper to Greta Wyndham, the wife of his friend, the artist Richard Wyndham: "Beautiful Nörge / Grëta Wyndham / John Betjemanström 1938 / Some of the major misprints have been corrected." Betjeman has made the following holograph corrections: "John" to "James Gibbs" in the caption on p.18; "Trinity College Chapel" for "Christchurch Cathedral" on p.118 and "Christine" for "Christian Longford" on p.186. Richard Wyndham and Betjeman moved in the same social circles notably both appearing in the amateur film The Sailor's Return filmed at Cecil Beaton's home Ashcombe. The news of this film, with Lady Caroline Paget starring as Tulip, also provided Betjeman with one of his few front-page scoops as a journalist on the Standard. Wyndham also provided artwork for Shell when Betjeman was working there under Jack Beddington.Caroline Dakers in Clouds: The Biography of a Country House comments "From 1929 onwards a regular visitor to Tickerage was Greta Wulfsberg, a Norwegian of 'piquant charm', one of Dick's [Richard Wyndham's] models. When she became pregnant in 1930, Dick agreed to marry her; his second daughter Ingrid was born the following year...He gave Ingrid a lavish christening party at Clouds but otherwise spent little time with his baby daughter. She lived for much of her childhood with her grandfather Guy and Violet Wyndham at Parliament Piece. Meanwhile Dick and Greta agreed to remain on friendly terms, often visiting country houses together, hosting parties in London, but only occasionally cohabiting as husband and wife. With the freedom to pursue their own interests, they remained on affectionate terms." Betjeman's warm inscription to Wyndham's wife Greta may provide the solution to one of the unanswered Betjemanian literary puzzles, the identity of the "golden haired Swedish beauty" in the poem The Irish Unionist's Farewell to Greta Hellström in 1922. In his biography Bevis Hillier spends some time considering the case (New Fame, New Love pp.328- 333), finally proposing Emily Villiers-Stuart as the unidentified lover of the poem, but concluding "Like the "Mr WH" conundrum, the matter is likely to remain a tantalizing mystery - unless, some day, a cache of hitherto unknown love-letters should come to light, with indisputable revelations." Although not a "cache of love-letters", the inscription in this book however would seem to cast Greta Wyndham in the role. Betjeman has changed her nationality from Norwegian to Swedish, possibly to disguise her identity, or for ease of scansion, or even perhaps to create a resonance with the best-known Greta in the 1930s - the Swedish Greta Garbo, who would have been specially well-known to JB as film critic of the Evening Standard in 1934-35. From a photograph of her taken with Dick at Tickerage it would also seem that Greta was in fact a brunette rather than 'golden haired', but certainly a beauty. The Irish Unionist's Farewell to Greta Hellström in 1922 was first published in the December 1945 issue of the Cornhill Magazine and then collected in New Bats in Old Belfries. By this stage Greta had divorced Richard Wyndham and Betjeman may have felt therefore more confident in alluding to an earlier amorous tryst. With loosely inserted a first proof (ink stamp dated 16 Nov 1945) of pp.479/480 from the December 1945 Cornhill Magazine printing the poem for the first time. It would seem highly improbable that Betjeman would send Greta Wyndham the proof if she were not the woman apostrophized in his poem.

        Typed letter signed to Fred E. Daw, 1938

      Typer letter signed ("Robert Stroud") to Fred E. Daw, Leavenworth, KS, 20 September 1938. Three pages, 4to, with a handful of holograph corrections, some minor toning. "The Birdman of Alcatraz" writes a lengthy letter, opening with "I am sorry that you have had bad luck with the finches, Your birds did more than mine, though. This finch of mine did not look at but one hen, a little copper, which did not come into breeding condition all season... Now, concerning the prices. I will not put any price on these birds. I know that you will do the best that you can with them..." Stroud was imprisoned for manslaughter in 1908. His 17-year term at Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary began on 19 December 1942. His famous bird-keeping and ornithological research had taken place at Leavenworth Prison (where this letter was written). Such practices were prohibited at Alcatraz, so he instead concentrated on writing, studying law, and petitioning for his release.

        The Hobbit or There and Back Again.

      Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1938. First American edition, first issue with bowing hobbit to the title page and all other issue points. Octavo, original cloth, map endpapers, illustrated by the author. In very good condition with some rubbing and wear to the cloth extremities, tiny name to the front free endpaper. "In enchanted Middle-earth, a small, comfort-loving Hobbit is awakened from his slumbers by a visitor who tells of lost treasure. Before Bilbo Baggins returns home again, he journeys past wizards and elves, talkative trees and treaure-guarding dragons, all swirling in cosmic battle between good and evil. J.R.R. Tolkien's fully realized fantasy world won over generations of children, and dazzled adults with its deft interweaving of medieval legend and made-up languages, maps, and creatures. Tolkien legitimized the modern fantasy genre, and provided the 1960's counterculture with antiwar, back-to-Eden icons" (NYPL Books of the Century 199).

      NY: Robert M. McBride and Company, 1938. First edition. Stamp "Property of Vangaurd Films, Inc." at endpapers and title page, touch of shelf wear to spine ends and corners, a little soiling at edges, a bright nearly fine copy, without the dust jacket. (13990). Octavo, [1-8] 1-213 [214-216, blank], original red cloth, front and spine stamped in black. Classic hardboiled mystery novel set in Southern California. From a new essay on the book by Woody Haut at the online Los Angeles Review of Books (7/29/11) -"The book does read like James Cain filtered through Thomas Pynchon. Although Knight's first person narrative begins in typical tough-guy fashion, with Dick Dempsey, an Oklahoma-born AWOL Marine hopping a freight in Texas for Southern California in pursuit of his wife and son, it soon moves off in another, wilder direction - more like a noir Alice in Lotus Land than a cool and conventional hardboiled novel." The author's only mystery novel, best known for creating the character Lassie the dog.

        Rebecca - First US Edition - David O. Selznick's copy with annotations and complete with original film poster *Alfred Hitchcock association*

      Doubleday Doran 1938 - A first edition, first printing published by Doubleday Doran in 1938. Covers a little rubbed, rubber-stamped with 'property of Selznick International pictures Inc.' and 'story department' on the front endpaper and repeated on the title page. Inscribed in pencil on front endpaper 'No. 2 marked copy'. Pencilled notes and stamps on endpapers. A substantial number of passages have been underlined or marked in pencil throughout, while there are also a number of marginal notes in pencil. Two of the more interesting notes: on page 4: 'I think we must work out a photographic and musical introduction that is the equivalent of this chapter - both to set the key of our picture (as this does of the book) and to satisfy, at the outset, the book's lovers of our intentions of faithfulness'. And on page 23: 'All excellent without change as to dialogue, business, construction, up to here'. The book was originally sold in an auction in South Kensington late in 1983 as one of a group of books, mainly Hugh Walpole novels inscribed by the author to David O. Selznick. Given the notes within the book, we can assume this is Selznick's personal copy and as such is a marvellous film and literary connection, especially as Selznick gave Alfred Hitchcock this as his first film under contract. Selznick's wish was to remain true to the novel and this is echoed in the notes on page 23. The film was released in 1940 and won Hitchcock his first Oscar. The book presented here is accompanied by an original poster from the Selznick studios from that year. A marvellous association copy and one which would sit very well in any Du Maurier/Hitchcock collection. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Rebecca - One of 200 Special Presentation Editions

      Gollancz 1938 - A first edition, first printing published by Gollancz in 1938. Some foxing to the prelims (title, half title) and to the page edges. Marked 'Special Presentation Edition' to the title page as called for. Gollancz wanted to publish 'Rebecca' quickly before the onset of World War Two. Du Maurier sent her final manuscript to the publishers in April 1938. The book was then published in August 1938, the Book Society Choice for August followed, and did the Literary Guild Choice for October 1938. By the 15th of October, 'Rebecca' had sold 50,000 copies and 72,000 by the 25th of May 1939 (Simons & Fullbrook 1998). Sir Victor Gollancz wanted to increase sales pressure, so in November 1938 printed 200 'Special Presentation Editions' which he sent to the 'Principal Rajars of the Book Trade' (ibid) to 'act as a kind of appetiser (.) receiving a special edition will flatter them and this is the first time we have ever issued a special edition' The Cheap edition was printed on the 24th July of 1939 'a few days before the anniversary of its first publication'. Unaccountably scarce and only the second copy we have handled. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      München, Zentralverlag der NSDAP Frz.Eher Nachf., 1938. Vollständige Ausgabe im Original Verlagshandeinband (Ganzleder / Leder / OGLdr / OLdr / Ldr im Format 13 x 19,2 cm) mit dekoriertem Rücken- und Deckeltitel sowie Kopfsilberschnitt, 469 Seiten, Schrift: Fraktur. \"Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen.
