Condition is excellent overall, with light wear and some corner bumping of the illustration board. Photograph of a sample SIGNET paperback front cover is just for reference. No paperback is included with this artwork. This evocative illustration for "Atlas Shrugged" was created by Robert Heindel (October 1, 1938 - July 3, 2005), an important American illustrator posthumously inducted in 2011 into the Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame. Primarily known as a dance illustrator in his later life (some say the best), he started in illustration, and was a core member of The Illustrators Workshop. In the 1980s he did illustrations for "every major print magazine such as 'Sports Illustrated', 'TV Guide', 'Ladies Home Journal', "'Redbook', the 'Saturday Evening Post', and 'Time' magazine." "Well-known patrons of dance and the performing arts collected Heindel's works and sponsored his exhibitions, including Princess Diana, Princess Margaret, Princess Caroline, Prince and Princess Takamado, and Andrew Lloyd Webber. His works are found in the permanent collections of museums including the Smithsonian Nat … [Click Below for Full Description]

Robinson Jeffers
New York: Random House, 1938. Snapshot of Jeffers had been taped to front endpaper. Tape dried out, remnants on endpaper; photo present, unattached. Book was read, pages & spine darkened, book o/w unmarked. Jacket also age-darkened, particularly on spine & around edges; dampstain affects rear cover & rear flap; small chip missing at top of front. Overall, VG - NF. Published by Random House (New York 1938). First Edition stated, with frontispiece photograph of Jeffers by Edward Weston that was not included in later printings and jacket photograph by Horace Lyon; dust jacket with original $3.50 price on front flap. Inscribed by Jeffers to actor Roland Young "with great pleasure in seeing him here again," and dated December 1938. A snapshot of Jeffers standing in the doorway of Hawk Tower had been taped to the front endpaper. The tape dried out and its remnants are still on the endpaper; the photo is still present, but unattached. The book has been read, and the pages and spine are darkened, but the book is otherwise unmarked. The jacket is also age-darkened, particularly on the spine and around the edges; a dampstain affects the rear cover and the rear flap; and a small chip is missing at the top of the front. Overall, somewhere between Very Good and Near Fine. In an age before book tours were the norm, people who wanted their books signed by Jeffers usually had to take their books to his home near Carmel, California. Most of those people were more readers than collectors, and consequently (as here) far more often than not books inscribed by Jeffers were read by the recipient … [Click Below for Full Description]

Numerous newspaper clippings tipped onto several leaves, inside wrappers, and on title page. Occasional, slightly later manuscript annotations. Light dust soiling and toning internally. A scarce 1938 Civilian Conservation Corps annual for companies headquartered in the Fort George Wright District in the Pacific Northwest. Units of the CCC were first established in Washington state in 1933, and by 1938 there were over 260 companies with approximately 46,000 members in areas of eastern Washington, northeastern Oregon, Idaho, and western Montana that made up the district. These companies were involved in a wide variety of projects relating to land and infrastructure improvement; conserving wildlife; managing forests; and conserving soil. "The Ft. George Wright District was responsible for the clearing and creation of many roads, bridges, and campsites, with the men of Camp Seven Mile creating Riverside State Park and the roads and buildings at Mount Spokane State Park. Soil conservation, fire and flood control, and reforestation helped reduce hazards and promote the health and safety of the Northwest's forests: blister rust control saved over 200,000 acres of white pine timber in the first six years of the Ft. George Wright program alone" - Spokane Historical Society.

This 1938 hardcover was published by Harvard University Press in Cambridge, MA. This book is inscribed on the ffep: "For Edward C. Moran Jr. a high spirited public servant with all fond wishes of Felix Frankfurter" (there are a series of initials after the signature which we cannot decipher one set appears to be justice - he had just been appointed to the supreme court).

There is a second gift inscription on the page "To Carl, with love from Rene April 19, 1939".

Captain Dudley Worseley Anderson Pelham
Spain, Gibraltar, Morocco, Italy, 1938. Journal of manuscript drawings, some painted in watercolour, by British Army Captain Dudley Worseley Anderson Pelham (1812-1851) beginning with scenes from a hunting expedition with young Prince George, Duke of Cambridge, and of subsequent sojourns and adventures during his time stationed in Gibraltar. Two volumes. 8vo. containing approximately 60 drawings, a scant few are double-leafs, approximately 12 of these are painted in watercolour. The vast majority are in one volume. Half black calf over blue marbled boards, gilt rules to spine, the first volume with manuscript title label to front reading, "1838. Figueres, Gibraltar, Tetuan, Tangier. Dudley Pelham." The second volume contains a few drawings from Gibraltar and Naples. Some wear to boards, two leafs excised from the volume but loosely placed within, otherwise in very good condition, a pleasing volume. Dudley Worseley Anderson Pelham (1812-1851) was a British naval commander and Whig politician, born into British peerage. Attaining the rank of Commander in the Royal Navy on 15 February 1836, he served in that capacity onboard the Wasp, in the Mediterranean, from 21 October 1837 to April 1840. During this time, he had the distinct pleasure of going on a sport-hunting expedition in Gibraltar with Prince George, evidently also accompanying him to Tetouan where the local Moroccan leader hosted the British royal and his entourage. Pelham was returned to parliament as one of two representatives for Boston in Lincolnshire at a by-election in 1849, a seat he held until his early death … [Click Below for Full Description]

Black leatherette lettered in gilt with British Union of Fascists flash and circle logo, all edges gilt, pink marbled endpapers. 72 pp. Very Good, rubbed with slightly exposed boards at tips and along spine. Laid in is a slip from Greater Britain Publications apologizing for the delay in shipping this edition. Also laid in is an unrecorded postwar flier inviting Stoke Newington residents to a towns meeting with the mayor to protest fascism and the BUF. In Near Fine condition. A rare signed copy of the British politician-turned-fascist leader's manifesto, published before his internment. After his release in 1943 he spent the rest of his years as something of an eminence grise in British politics despite his exile and public disgrace. The laid-in handbill is an intriguing rejoinder to the book, illuminating the conflicting currents of midcentury British politics.[Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

Paris Corti s.d.

On a souvent qualifié ce roman de "surréaliste" mais Gracq, lui, se revendique de "Parsifal", des "Mystères dÂ’Udolphe", du "château dÂ’Otrante" et de la "maison Usher". Même s'il en possède quelques caractéristiques (notamment un triangle amoureux décousu de ses ficelles !), la mythologie créée par Gracq est déjà bien en place : décors et paysages qui prennent le dessus sur les personnages, forêt-maîtresse qui circonscrit l'espace-temps et borde le récit pour le cantonner à un seul lieu, celui de l'écriture. Exemplaire en parfaite condition dans une très pure reliure d'Alix. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
