        Gladiators; Darkness At Noon and Arrival and Departure.

      New York: The Macmillan Company, 1939-1943. First American editions of each work in Koestler's acclaimed trilogy, including his masterpiece, Darkness at Noon. Octavo, original cloth. Darkness at Noon is signed by Arthur Koestler on the front free endpaper. Each volume is very good in a very good dust jackets with some rubbing and wear. First printings are rare signed. Although there is no narrative connection between the books, Arthur Koestler declared his first three novels to be a thematic trilogy following the publication of the final installment, Arrival and Departure. Set in different eras, each novel explores the ethics and consequences of revolutionary politics and idealism, reflecting Koestler's growing disillusionment with the political environment of mid-20th century Europe. Published in 1939, Koestler's first novel, The Gladiators, used the portrayal of the slave uprising led by Thracian gladiator Spartacus in ancient Rome to examine the rise of communism in the Soviet Union. This book was followed by Koestler's masterpiece, Darkness at Noon, the tale of an Old Bolshevik who is imprisoned and tried for treason by the very government he helped to create. Despite being based on real events, the novel does not directly refer to the Soviet government, Stalin, or Nazi Germany but uses generic descriptors such as "the Party", "Number One", and "the Dictatorship" respectively. The final book in the trilogy, Arrival and Departure, reflects Koestler's own plight as a Hungarian refugee in the midst of the Second World War. Koestler's contemporary, George Orwell, commended the book "for what must be one of the most shocking descriptions of Nazi terrorism that have ever been written."

The remaining pictures, some of which are identified on the reverse, show Damshroder and his family at their farm or neighboring farms, images of championship cows, what appear to be business trips to Florida and Mexico, and vacations to Ft.

LVI, 260 pages. Original Hardcover with illustrated dustjacket in protective slip-case. Excellent condition limited edition with only very minor signs of external wear. George Bernard Shaw (26 July 1856 – 2 November 1950), known at his insistence simply as Bernard Shaw, was an Irish playwright, critic and polemicist whose influence on Western theatre, culture and politics extended from the 1880s to his death and beyond. He wrote more than sixty plays, including major works such as Man and Superman (1902), Pygmalion (1912) and Saint Joan (1923). With a range incorporating both contemporary satire and historical allegory, Shaw became the leading dramatist of his generation, and in 1925 was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. Back to Methuselah (A Metabiological Pentateuch) by George Bernard Shaw consists of a preface (An Infidel Half Century) and a series of five plays: In the Beginning: B.C. 4004 (In the Garden of Eden), The Gospel of the Brothers Barnabas: Present Day, The Thing Happens: A.D. 2170, Tragedy of an Elderly Gentleman: A.D. 3000, and As Far as Thought Can Reach: A.D. 31,920. All were written during 1918–20, published simultaneously by Constable (London) and Brentano's (New York) in 1921, and first performed in the United States in 1922 by the New York Theatre Guild at the old Garrick Theatre, New York.

        Ozoplaning With the Wizard Oz

      Reilly & Lee, Chicago 1939 - First printing, with first printing dust jacket, octavo size, 272 pp. The thirty-third and last of the "canonical" books in the fabulously popular "Oz" series, the nineteenth written by Ruth Plumly Thompson. It was decided to include the phrase "The Wizard of Oz" in the title to coincide with the release the same year of the MGM film starring Judy Garland. In fact, it seems the book was written with the film in mind, as the story focuses on the characters who appeared in the first book. This a lovely copy, a wonderful way to complete a set for any Oz collector.___***DESCRIPTION: Bound in full tan cloth, black lettering and designs to the backstrip, full-colour pastedown on the front board, black and white illustrated endpapers, 16-page gatherings, replete with black and white illustrations (issued without colour plates); octavo size (9.25" by 7"), 272 pages. Dust jacket shows the original $1.50 price, the front and back panels mirror the book's pastedown, the back flap lists the Oz titles through this title, number 32.___***CONDITION: Volume could almost be called fine; the binding is clean, the black on the spine deep and unrubbed, the front pastedown has bright colours and is perfect (with no rubbing or other defects), the corners are straight, the text block is strong and square with solid hinges, the interior is clean and bright, and the volume is entirely free of prior owner markings (including the "Belongs to" page, which is blank); the only condition issues we see is a hint of wear to the bottom edge, the book is slightly cocked, and there is a small, light stain to the fore-edge of the text block. The unclipped dust jacket is very good plus to near fine, with some minor wear at the usual spots (head and tail of the spine, and where the panels meet the flaps), the worst being a small, triangular chip where the front panel meets the head of the spine; also some sunning to the spine. Overall a lovely copy.___***CITATIONS: Bienvenue p. 121, Hanff & Greene no. 33.___***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard shipping charge does not always cover costs; please inquire for details.___***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind book we sell.

        Original set design for the Coronation scene in Act III of Modest Musorgsky's opera Boris Godunov by the noted Russian artist Alexandre Benois

      - Watercolour and pencil on wove paper. 275 x 370 mm. Signed by the artist with initials and dated 1939 in pencil at lower right corner. Boris Godunov, an opera in seven scenes (or a prologue and four acts) by Modest Petrovich Musorgsky (1839-1881) to his own libretto, was adapted from the historical tragedy by Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin, and supplemented (in the revised version) by material partly derived from historical works by Nikolay Mikhaylovich Karamzin and others. It is considered one of the most important of all Russian operas. Benois is considered a seminal influence on modern ballet set and costume design. "In 1901, [he] was appointed scenic director of the Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg, the performance space for the Imperial Russian Ballet. He moved to Paris in 1905 and thereafter devoted most of his time to stage design and decor. During these years, his work with Diaghilev's Ballets Russes was groundbreaking. His sets and costumes for the productions of Les Sylphides (1909), Giselle (1910), and Petrushka (1911), are counted among his greatest triumphs. Although Benois worked primarily with the Ballets Russes, he also collaborated with the Moscow Art Theatre and other notable theatres of Europe." Wikipedia. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Inscribed by the author to Henry Tatnall Brown in 1940. Basis for the 1940 film directed by Wesley Ruggles and starring William Holden and Jean Arthur as the first female citizen of Tucson, a hellcat with a heart of gold. A meticulously researched, big-budget epic, Columbia Pictures was able to recoup some of the cost by reusing elements as stock footage in many of its subsequent B-programmers.

        Back to Methusela. Engravings by John Farleigh.

      New York, The Limited Editions Club. 1939 - Sprache: English 19 cm x 28 cm. LVI, 260 pages. Original Hardcover with illustrated dustjacket in protective slip-case. Excellent condition limited edition with only very minor signs of external wear. George Bernard Shaw (26 July 1856 – 2 November 1950), known at his insistence simply as Bernard Shaw, was an Irish playwright, critic and polemicist whose influence on Western theatre, culture and politics extended from the 1880s to his death and beyond. He wrote more than sixty plays, including major works such as Man and Superman (1902), Pygmalion (1912) and Saint Joan (1923). With a range incorporating both contemporary satire and historical allegory, Shaw became the leading dramatist of his generation, and in 1925 was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. Back to Methuselah (A Metabiological Pentateuch) by George Bernard Shaw consists of a preface (An Infidel Half Century) and a series of five plays: In the Beginning: B.C. 4004 (In the Garden of Eden), The Gospel of the Brothers Barnabas: Present Day, The Thing Happens: A.D. 2170, Tragedy of an Elderly Gentleman: A.D. 3000, and As Far as Thought Can Reach: A.D. 31,920. All were written during 1918–20, published simultaneously by Constable (London) and Brentano's (New York) in 1921, and first performed in the United States in 1922 by the New York Theatre Guild at the old Garrick Theatre, New York.
