During the last years of his life, Kipling was engaged in a complete revision of his works, with a view to having it published in Britain; the results were the Sussex Edition, and this present edition in America. Though these editions, which contain the author's final revisions, were posthumously published, Kipling managed to sign the sheets just before his death.

        Autograph manuscript signed twice ("P. S. B.").

      No place, ca. March 1941. - 4to. 9 pp. on 9 ff. A series of book reviews for Asia magazine. First comes a brief note on "The autobiography of Jawaharlal Nehru [.] entitled Toward Freedom [.] the new edition, which contains a valuable new chapter that brings it up to date [.]". With Buck's "Asia Column", a book review, in which she writes, "Out of the Night, by Jan Valtin, is a book like none other that has ever been written. It is difficult to define exactly its unique quality and significance, but it has both these. The material is not in itself new. It is, superficially, the story of a German communist who was sent to work in underground activities for communism in many countries [.] among which were the United States and China. The book contains no propaganda. It is the story of a man so shaped by the circumstances of his time [.] that he was captured by communism [.] [For Communism] might be substituted almost any other impersonal power which has laid hold of human individuals and used them and dehumanized them [.]". - After a discussion of the book's contents, she concludes that "It all makes a book which everyone ought to read who believes in the dignity of the individual [.]". She next turns to "Workers Before And After Lenin by Manya Gordon [.] an examination into the conditions of the Russian labor for the last fifty years, and a comparison of the conditions of working people in that country now [.] The book begins with an account of the gains which labor was making before the revolution [.]". Rebelling against oppression and exploitation, "[.] The unions did not at once realize that they would be in exactly the same relation to the Soviet government as they were to their former capitalist employers [.] with one difference. Under the old system they could strike and arbitrate and negotiate. Under the new regime they lost all such rights [.]". She writes of the author's conclusion, "[.] If she is right and if the people of Russia are once more fighting for liberty [.] it brings them back into the world of peoples [.]". She reviews two other works more briefly, "Chinese Homes and Gardens [.] a joy to possess [.]" and "The Maori People Today", a collection of symposium essays. She notes that "[.] it has been taken for granted that the white man in New Zealand has treated the Maori with unusual justice and mercy [.]" but the collection shows there was "[.] no unusual goodness on the part of the white conquerors [.]". - Buck signs her initials after each of these last two reviews, the first in pencil. With numerous pencil and ink revisions. All pages stapled together in upper left corner. Binder holes at left edge. Age-toned, especially at edges, with some breaks in binder holes of first page, otherwise in very good condition. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1941 : 1941 Original Hardback Wisden No Restoration VG

      1941. Hi, I recently purchased a set of Wisdens and the first 50 of the run were in a suitcase that had not been opened for over 50 years. This lot is an 1941 Original Hardback Wisden. It is in Very Good+ Condition The boards are very clean and presentable, there is one small line to them but otherwise excellent. The front gilt is very bright and the spine gilt is only slightly faded , one of the best spine gilts I have seen on a 1941. Internally it has very clean pages and it cannot have been opened too many times as the hinges are very springy. Small mark to page block, pictures taken with and without flash. A very nice, rare, Wisden that is hard to beat.
