        Alcoholics Anonymous.

      Works Publishing Company, New York City 1939 - Half-title + TP + v-viii + half-title + 1-400 + 3 blank leaves, Large Octavo. First Edition, First Printing. The first edition, first printing of the Big Book was produced by Cornwall Press in New York and printed on thick paper with wide margins (in order to justify the price of $3.50 a copy) in a press run of 4,650. INSCRIBED by Bill Wilson to Tom Birrell, one of the founding members of AA in New York: "Tom Birrell - / Our dear friend / of A.A., whose devotion / to our cause - and / to us - is one of / our brightest pages - / Affectionately / Bill + Lois / Xmas '44" (NOTE: Lois Wilson also signed here own signature at the end.)Tom Birrell was one of just five AA members in New York - along with Bill Wilson, Fitz Mayo, Bert Taylor & Jim Burwell - who "contributed to the writing of the book" and who stayed continuously sober after the Big Book was published. (This information is taken from a handwritten commentary and list made by Jim Burwell - the famous NY atheist who insisted on putting 'as we understood Him" in the Steps - inside his personal copy of the early Multilith printing of the book done in February of 1939 - now in a private collection. A typed transcription of this same list can be found in the GSO Archives in New York City.) Given Tom's sobriety date of February, 1939, it is unlikely that he made any kind of substantive contribution to the Big Book although he may have made suggestions for changes to the text - since the book was going through the final stages of editing between February and March of 1939. Tom remained sober until his death in 1964. But Tom Birrell's contribution was not just limited to the fact that he was an early AA member. For one thing, he was a pioneer proponent of making contributions for both the 'infrastructure' and the common good of AA - a fact which Bill Wilson noted fondly in a talk that he gave in 1955 on the early days at the Manhattan Group: "Tom B. was leading the meeting that night, and at the intermission he put on a real plug for money, the first I'd ever heard. At that time, money and spirituality couldn't mix, even in the hat. I mean, you mustn't talk about money! Well, Tom put on that heavy pitch, and as the hat came along, I fished in my pocket and pulled out half a buck." THERE ARE MORE DETAILS AVAILABLE ON TOM BIRRELl THAT WILL NOT FIT HERE - AND ARE AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. A beautifully preserved and important inscription copy of "Big Red" - the first edition, first printing of Alcoholics Anonymous. There are two very minor spots to the lower front cover of the book, but it is otherwise clean and unworn with remarkably bright gilt lettering on the front cover and the spine. The dust jacket has, unfortunately, not been so lovingly treated. It is torn, chipped, ripped and inelegantly repaired with aging cellophane tape - but looking 100% authentic here in its protective cover! The interior is without markings of any kind - other than the inscription by Bill Wilson on the front fly leaf. A truly stunning copy of this landmark book that has been a life-saver to so many millions of people worldwide! PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition]

        CRYSTALLINE ENZYMES. The Chemistry of Pepsin, Trypsin, and Bacteriophage. Number XII of the Columbia Biological Series.

      Columbia University Press, New York 1939 - SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY JOHN H. NORTHROP. A Near Fine hardback First Edition First Printing in blue cloth binding with gilt lettering spine. 8vo. xv, 176 pp. Sumner's and Northrop's pioneer work made possible detailed studies of the chemical nature of enzymes, and as chemists could now use well-defined enzyme preparations they were able to investigate the changes brought about by these substances in a far more systematic way than before and with far greater chances of success" (Nobel, the Man and His Prizes, pp. 377). See Garrison-Morton 1038.1 for Northrop's 1930 paper on crystallization of pepsin. The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 1946 was divided, one half awarded to James Batcheller Sumner "for his discovery that enzymes can be crystallized", the other half jointly to John Howard Northrop and Wendell Meredith Stanley "for their preparation of enzymes and virus proteins in a pure form".

        The Local

      London: Cassell & Co, Ltd, 1939. London: Cassell & Co, Ltd,, 1939. Octavo. Original grey boards printed in red and black. With 15 four-colour lithographic plates, including one double-page. Small chip to head of toned spine, a couple of short superficial tears to spine and joints. An excellent copy. 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 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.

SIGNED by the author to the front free end paper 'For Bobby and Margaret from Conrad, January 1939'. Robert Mackechnie [Bobby] and Margaret Mackechnie [nee Barnard] English painter friends of Conrad Aiken. Until the second world war Aiken lived mostly at Winchelsea, opposite the muddy creek from where the Mackechnie's lived on the Rye side. By the way, Margaret Barnard's sister Alison Mary Barnard was a formidable Lady and networker. She lived at No. 4, Wimpole Mews, London and 'ran' The Centre of Spiritual and Psychological Studies. Here many Peace seeking authors, artists of very different plumage came together including Walter de la Mare, C. S. Lewis, Kathleen Raine, G. K. Chesterton [early on], Laurens van der Post and many more. No doubt Conrad Aiken too, who was a lifelong friend of C. S. Lewis, no outward publicity, quite the opposite of the extrovert Bloomsbury Bohemian hack hub.

        Hamlet (2 Volume set), Volume 2 Signed By Henry Miller in Special Clamshell Case

      Carrefour, New York 1939 - First Editions, 1939-1941. Henry Miller's personal copies and he has signed volume II with the name of his literary agents [Russell & Volkening with the address given of 522 5th Avenue, NYC) while he continued to live in near povery in the early 1940's. The correspondence covered the years 1935 -1938 with Miller's letters to Michael Fraenkel (the model for Boris in Tropic of Cancer) the real subject is not Shakespeare's play but Miller's interpretation of Boris's brilliance yet indecisiveness. Certainly one of the most important works giving a key to Miller's writing after completing his then still suppressed (in the US and England) trilogy. First Editions of these two volumes are very rare though reprints took placed in the 1980's. These early volumes include Michael Fraenkel's letters to Miller. Both copies are housed in a beautiful clamshell box and have lost most of their spines though the text is clear and the stamped "printed in Mexico" was one of the ways to avoid the ever present censors (one volume has in small letters printed in Belgium) This way Miller could claim he had no control over the scandalous content if sued for libel. In Henry Miller Letters to Anais Nin, he writes of the background of the publishing history. January 6, 1941 "Just got the mail but no checks and no contract or letter from Volkening (his literary agent was John Slocum).Had letter from Fraenkel saying he is printing another batch of the Hamlet Letters in Mexico. On May 12, 1941 he writes her that Volkening his holding up his mail as he travels through the United States in what will become The Air Conditioined Nightmare. 8vio [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        THE GRAPES OF WRATH

Dust jacket nearly Fine, just a trifle faded along the spine and with trivial creasing and wear a the crown and foot. Jacket with correct price of $2.75 and "First Edition" slug on the front flap. An excellent copy.Steinbeck';s classic account of the Dust Bowl and Depression era struggle of the Joad family, "The Grapes of Wrath" is a quintessential American classic. It would win both the National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize and the Nobel Prize committee would refer to it as Steinbeck';s "epic chronicle" upon giving him the award in 1962. The book was the best selling novel of 1939 and became instantly controversial upon its release for its depiction of farmers and worker rights. Of course, "The Grapes of Wrath" was also adapted into the classic 1940 film, directed by John Ford and starring Henry Fonda, which was one of the first films selected by The Library of Congress for preservation in the United States National Film Registry. "It is a very long novel, the longest that Steinbeck has written, and yet it reads as if it had been composed in a flash, ripped off the typewriter and delivered to the public as an ultimatum." (Contemporary New York Times Review). Fine in Near Fine. dust jacket. [Attributes: First Edition]
