Lovecraft's major inspiration and invention was cosmic horror, the idea that life is incomprehensible to human minds and that the universe is fundamentally alien. Those who genuinely reason, like his protagonists, gamble with sanity. Lovecraft has developed a cult followingfor his Cthulhu Mythos, a series of loosely interconnected fiction featuring a pantheon of human-nullifying entities, as well as the Necron … [Click Below for Full Description]

Moscow: Izd. Vsesoiuznoi akademii arkhitektury, 1939. 48 pp.: ill. 21x16 cm. In original illustrated wrappers. Spine repaired, some stains, otherwise very good and clean internally. Very rare. "Palace of Soviets will be built definitely at the time set by the party and government" - this book stressed in 1939. The design by architect B. Iofan was extraordinary because of building size, but this book proved that engineers headed to the most complicated construction of ever built. In fact, it was difficult to lay the foundation it needed, to equip the building with metal construction, electric power system, heating system as well as ventilation - after all, the huge meeting halls were designed inside. The edition reflected all stages of the pre-war history of projecting the grandiose building and presented how scrupulously it was done on 18 drawings of internal and external view. Worldcat shows the only copy in Getty Institute.

LLEWELLYN, Richard.
London: Michael Joseph Ltd, 1939. Octavo. Original cream buckram, spine lettered in gilt on red morocco label, top edge gilt. Spine very lightly sunned, minor foxing to endpapers and edges. A very good copy. First edition, signed limited issue, number 122 of 200 copies signed by the author. The story of Huw Morgan, a collier in a south Wales mining community, How Green Was My Valley was one of the early successes that secured the future of Michael Joseph's fledgling publishing house, which he founded in 1935: a time when many well-established companies were experiencing financial difficulties or closing down. Llewellyn originally proposed the title Land of My Fathers, which he changed at Joseph's suggestion to something "more biblical and nostalgic" (ODNB). It brought Llewellyn "instant celebrity and an assured income for the rest of his life. Filmed in Hollywood by John Ford in 1940 (winning five Oscars), the novel soon became a best-seller, was translated into some two dozen languages, and has never since been out of print. It is the most famous book ever written about south Wales and one of the most enduringly popular novels in English of the twentieth century" (ibid). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

EDWARD ARDIZZONE British Pubs RARE
London: Cassell & Co, Ltd, 1939, 1939. First Edition, First Printing. Original grey boards printed in red and black. Small chip to head of spine. A Very Good+ copy. With 15 four-colour lithographic plates, including one double-page. First edition, sole impression. "Ardizonne's illustrations are generally concerned with contemporary life untouched by political, religious or ideological conflicts. His approach is not satiric or moralistic but autobiographical, and his drawings are representational and humourous and demonstrate his affection for people" (The Dictionary of 20th Century British Book Illustrators). The Ardizzone illustrations, printed at the Curwen Press in stunning chromolithography,retain their vitality. Among the named pubs illustrated are the Spread Eagle in Thame, the Warrington in Maida Vale, the Red Lion at Barnes, the Goat just off Bond Street.The text, together with the Glossary of Terms commonly used in connection with the London Pubs, remain a wonderful insight and are added to by the wonderful Ardizzone lithos. Famous for its 15 colour lithographs by Edward Ardizzone, this is a very rare book and a beautifully illustrated 'guide' to pubs. A very rare title to find in any collectable condition and a key Ardizzone title. The book's scarcity has long been anecdotally attributed within the book trade to the bomb damage inflicted on Cassell's premises during the Blitz. Whether this is true or not, it remains a scarce book, especially in this condition. The two flaps from the VERY RARE dust jacket are loosley laid in. [Attributes: First Edition]

WILLIAM FAULKNER
1939. Covers darkened near edges, with somet paper loss at bottom & corners; spine age-faded with some fraying at top and bottom of spine; no internal damage. Published by Random House (New York 1939). First edition. Hardbound, with wood-grain-patterned paper sides and rust cloth back. In the binding of the 250-copy limited edition, this copy lacks the tipped-in signed limitation page. The covers are darkened near the edges, with some paper loss at the bottom and the corners, and the spine is age-faded with some fraying at the top and bottom of the spine; no internal damage. Good. Faulkner's moving novel of flight and refuge, later published under his original title, If I Forget Thee, Jerusalem, The Wild Palms tells two interwoven stories. "The Wild Palms" and "Old Man" alternate chapters, each telling a different, but equally captivating tale of a relationship between a man and a woman. "The Wild Palms" ends with one of literature's darkest closing lines, "Between grief and nothing, I will take grief." "For range of effect, philosophical weight, originality of style, variety of characterization, humor, and tragic intensity, [Faulkner's works] are without equal in our time and country." Robert Penn Warren "He is the greatest artist the South has produced. . . . Indeed, through his many novels and short stories, Faulkner fights out the moral problem which was repressed after the nineteenth century [yet] for all his concern with the South, Faulkner was actually seeking out the nature of man. Thus we must turn to him for that continuity of moral purpose which made for greatnes … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cay told her and she told him This past month has been stuffed alright. Roberta got married the first day. Pauline told me that she was pregnant. Wonder what it will be.

THOMPSON, Ruth Plumly
Reilly & Lee, 1939. Fine. Hardcover. First edition, first issue. Quarto. Illustrated by Jno. R. Neill. Very small spots of sunning at the spine ends, else fine in an attractive, very good plus first state dustwrapper with slight chipping at the crown, and some faint fading on the spine. After L. Frank Baum's death the Oz stories were continued by license from the Baum family. Because they were reprinted so many times, determining the first edition of these titles requires either a team of Talmudically trained bibliomaniacs, or patience and the excellent Hanff and Greene bibliography. We employee the latter. An attractive copy, and very scarce in jacket. [Attributes: First Edition; In Dust Jacket]

Dark blue dust jacket is in really nice vintage condition; no clipped corners, no tears or repairs. There is edge wear and scuffing at the folds.
