      Lpz., Insel-Vlg. 1941.. Kl.-8°. 65(3) S. OPpbd. m. Deckel- und Rü.-Schildchen (Jenne-ÜP-Nr. 84a). Einbd. min. berieben, Vorsätze Titel und letztes Bl. gebräunt, im Text tadellos.. Slg. Jenne² I; S.227 und II, S.236. Seltener Band der Insel-Bücherei, da vorliegende Auflage laut Jenne als kriegszerstört gilt und nur Einzelexemplare bekannt sind. Der Insel Verlag erstellte bald nach Ende des 2. Weltkrieges ein Auflagenbuch für die Insel-Bücherei, das eine Aufstellung aller kriegzerstörten Auflagen enthält. Sie beruhen auf Verlustmeldungen von Komissionären und Druckereien nach der Kriegsschädenverordnung. Danach gelten neben 79 ganz zerstörten Nachauflagen, 9 wesentlich geänderte Nachauflagen (wie die uns vorliegende) sowie 5 Nachauflagen als teilweise vernichtet. Viele der kriegszerstörten Nachauflagen findet man auch nur selten gebunden. - Die Mehrzahl dieser Legenden stammt aus dem Buch 'Der Wunderbaum'.

        Song

      (New York: Frederic Prokosch). 1941. First. First edition. Marbled paper self-wrappers with printed paper label. 12mo. Fine. One of 33 copies. Signed by the author. Although not stated in the book, a penciled note indicates that Prokosch recalled having this printed at the Peter Pauper press. A brief poem, one of the author's rare "butterfly books." Prokosch was an American novelist of remarkable promise who later fell under a cloud for manufacturing some spurious "rare first editions," which he did while experimenting with the handpress he used to manufacture the butterfly books. Additionally he reprinted some of the books between 1978-1980, but the provenance of this book, and the owner's notes that accompany the book indicate that it was obtained in the 1950s. His reputation has suffered despite the fact that his books were both a critical and popular success at the time of publication. OCLC locates four copies. .

        THE BLACK STALLION (1st Printing Inscribed By the Author in Original 1st Printing DJ)

      New York: Random House, 1941. Farley, Walter. THE BLACK STALLION. New York: Random House, 1941. FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING (so stated). A Very Good copy (finger-soiling, spine slightly darkened, edges dusty) in the original publisher&#39;s decorated cloth which has received expert restoration to its spine tips and corners. It has been married to a Good To Very Good ORIGINAL PRICED FIRST PRINTING DUST JACKET with all correct first printing points.. The Dust Jacket is spine-faded and has some chips, stains, and creases. It also has been trimmed a half-inch by the publisher and "Random House" has not been stamped on the spine. It&#39;s our conjecture that a number of first printing DJs were cut down by the publisher in preparation to fit war-time smaller format editions. This first printing dust jacket is exceedingly rare (we&#39;ve only seen or heard of six or so in the last twenty years). Far more important, this copy is ONE OF ONLY TWO SIGNED FIRST PRINTING COPIES KNOWN TO US (the other still residing with the author&#39;s heirs). "To Delores -/ My very extra-special/ girl friend./ Love,/ Walter/ Sept. 3rd 1940]/ P.S. Let your sister Sue, and/your mother and your dad/take a "peek" at the Black, too, / won&#39;t you?" THE BLACK STALLION along with the other 21 books in the Black Stallion series published between 1941-1983 have sold tens of millions of copies over the last seven decades. The fine 1979 film adaptation of THE BLACK STALLION won several Oscar nominations.
