        ABRAHAM LINCOLN: THE PRAIRIE YEARS and THE WAR YEARS

      New York Harcourt, Brace and Company ca. 1926-1943 - 6 volumes. Early issues of THE WAR YEARS and in the matching format of THE PRAIRIE YEARS. With 426 half-tones of photographs, and 244 cuts of cartoons, letters and documents, and with over 100 maps, additional photographs, and facsimiles. Large 8vo, beautifully bound in three-quarter red crushed morocco for Charles E. Lauriat, the spines righly gilt with raised bands gilt tooled, separating the compartments, which are lettered in two panels and decorated in the remaing four with gilt ornamental devices at the centers, sides with gilt lines bordering the morocco, t.e.g. xvi, 480; vi, 482 including index; xxxi, 660; xi, 655; xiii, 673; xii, 515 + index A very fine, pleasing and handsome set, the bindings very attractive with very little indication of use, internally uncommonly fresh with no foxing whatsoever. AN EXTREMELY PLEASING AND FINELY BOUND SET OF THIS CLASSIC WORK, STILL THE BEST AND MOST DEFINITIVE BIOGRAPHY OF THE GREAT AMERICAN PRESIDENT. Carl Sandburg was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for his Complete Poems (1950), and then again for his Abraham Lincoln: The War Years (1939). The Prairie Years’ covers Lincoln’s life from his birth to his first inauguration. Originally printed in two volumes, the author himself has this to say about this edition, "I first planned this book for one large volume. When completed, however, it was necessary for initial publication to issue it in two. It is [here] made available to a large part of the public I had in mind all the time." The War Years covers the Civil War period until Lincoln’s death by assassination shortly after war’s end. In a real sense, this is the definitive biography of Lincoln, illustrated with photographs and reproductions of paintings, drawings and sketches. Carl Sandburg felt a close tie to Abraham Lincoln because of similar childhood experiences. Sandburg’s and Lincoln’s youths had not been easy. Their understanding of the common man was mutual. Each in his own lifetime would think of himself as a common man, a struggler from among ordinary people, according to one historian. Sandburg put it this way: "There’s a certain level of human existence below which one must sometime have lived if one is to really know the ways of the masses." Reviewers from all over the world called Sandburg’s book a classic. Sandburg, with a reputation as a labor advocate, gained favor with Republicans. After the first two volumes were published, William Randolph Hearst offered Sandburg a job with substantial pay and the Republican Party invited him to be the main speaker at the Lincoln Dinner. When Sandburg died in 1967, it was said of him what he had once said of Lincoln: "Now he belongs to the ages.".Franchere [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Lady in the Lake

      Knopf, NY 1943 - Bound in light green cloth, stamped in forest green. Only flaws to book are a bit of dustiness to edges and a small number 5649 written on the ffep. The dustwrapper has had some minor restoration work done to the top of the spine. Shows a little darkening to the rear panel. But no chips, tears to speak of. One of 6000 copies in the first edition. Overall, a tight, clean copy of the book in original dustwrapper -- rare in this protected condition. Basis for the bizarre movie directed by George Haight of the same title that starred Robert Montgomery as Marlowe -- but because of the "subjective camera" method -- you rarely see the actor.

        Santino id. 01 San Francesco Da Paola

      - San Franciscus De Pau Finissima miniatura su pergamena. L'immagine è cavata dalcelebre dipinto di Jean Bourdichon nella Chiesa di S. Maria della Pace a Roma. L'artista sostenne di aver realizzato l'immagine basandosi sulla maschera mortuaria del Santo. S. Francesco da Paola, Patrono degli eremiti, protettore dalla peste e dalla infertilità matrimoniale e, dal 1943, patrono dei naviganti italiani, fu il fondatore dell'ordine dei Frati Minimi, che lui aveva chiamato, in verità, ordine degli Eremiti di S. Francesco d'Assisi. Fu al servizio dei Re di Francia, dapprima di Luigi XI il Prudente, che lo convocò al proprio capezzale di morte, poi del figlio e successore Carlo VIII. Francesco morì in Francia, a Plessis-le-Tour, il giorno del Venerdì Santo, e fu sepolto il Lunedì dell'Angelo. Sulla sua maschera mortuaria il Bourdichon, pittore di corte, dipinse il suo ritratto che fu poi donato da Francesco I a Papa Leone X in occasione della canonizzazione del Santo (1519). L'originale è scomparso, ma si conoscono numerose copie. Dimensioni cm. 13,5 x 7,5 Epoca Secolo XVII

        THE GASTRONOMICAL ME. Inscribed to her sister.

      Duell, Sloan and Pearce, [1943, New York - Fisher, M.F.K. THE GASTRONOMICAL ME. Inscribed to her sister. New York: Duell, Sloan & Pearce, 1943 . First Edition, Publisher's unknown variant of apricot cloth covered boards stamped in silver at the spine. Not the smooth green cloth normally encountered & likely one of the earliest author's copies. 8vo., 295pp, with the more uncommon first issue dustwrapper with the more provocative reclining pose shot by Hurrell. A near fine copy in a very good dustwrapper showing moderate use including two chips at the spine crown. Inscribed by Fisher to her sister in black fountain pen on the ffe: "For Aimee, with my love always / Mary". A superb family copy of this much admired tightly woven memoir & collection of cooking essays written over a twenty year period that have more to do with the entanglements of life & the appreciation of good things. Considered by many as her best book, TGM is about hunger in all its variant forms. "When I write about hunger, I am really writing about love and the hunger for it, and warmth, and the love of it - and then the warmth and richness and fine reality of hunger satisfied. " Her lovely description of one of her meals speaks volumes about her craft: "There in Dijon, the cauliflowers were very small and succulent, grown in that ancient soil. I separated the flowerlets and dropped them in boiling water for just a few minutes. Then I drained them and put them in a wide shallow casserole, and covered them with heavy cream, and a thick sprinkling of freshly grated Gruyere, the nice rubbery kind that didn’t come from Switzerland at all, but from the Jura. It was called rape in the market, and was grated while you watched, in a soft cloudy pile, onto your piece of paper". An excellent copy. "M. F. K. Fisher . brings onstage a peach or a brace of quail and shows us history, cities, fantasies, memories, emotions." - Patricia Storace, The New York Review of Books.

        Tibetan Word Book

      Oxford University Press, Indian Branch, London 1943 - Circular blind-stamp of the "Preparatory Research Council / American Aero-Medical Mountain Mission" on the front endpaper and title page. Dust wrapper spine has some tears and losses and signs of label removal.; xvi, 447 pages. Green cloth boards. Page dimensions: 247 x 182mm.The dust wrapper and endpapers are of hand made paper manufactured in Bhutan for the Tibetan market. The front panel of the dust wrapper has the same type setting as the title page. Printed in India. Scarce, particularly with the dust wrapper. Aurel Stein's Preface is dated "Camp, Bahawalpur January 1, 1943". "His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, Jetsun Jampel Ngawang Lobsang Yishe Tendzin Gyatsho, was born on the sixth of June 1935 near Kumbum in the district to the south-east of Lake Kokonor which the Tibetans call Amdo. A visit to Lhasa in 1940 in connexion with his installation gave opportunity for much of the work which has been done on these books. Based on an examination of syllables, the books show how it is that Dalai means Ocean, that Lama means one who is Above All, that Kumbum means the Hundred Thousand Images, that Lhasa means the Place of God, that the word Serthringaso which we render as Installation means the Request to Take Possession of the Golden Throne, and that the names of the Dalai Lama mean The Holy One, The Tender Glory, Mighty in Speech, Of Excellent Intellect, Of Absolute Wisdom, Holding the Doctrine, The Ocean" - from the author's "General Preface". Basil Gould and Hugh Richardson, working for the Indian Civil Service, featured very prominently in the story of Britain's political relations with Tibet in the first half of the Twentieth Century. Hugh Richardson became a notable British scholar of Tibetan history, many of Richardson's writings on Tibetan history were collected in the book "High Peaks, Pure Earth" (1998). For more on the British cadre in Tibet before 1950, see Alex McKay's "Tibet and the British Raj: The Frontier Cadre 1904-1947" (1997), and the works of Sir Charles Bell. ; 4to [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Bob Dylan, in his autobiography CHRONICLES, recounts reading BOUND FOR GLORY for the first time: "I went through it from cover to cover like a hurricane, totally focused on every word, and the book sang out to me like the radio. BOUND FOR GLORY is a hell of a book. It's huge. Almost too big." Small owner's address label on the front endpaper, gilt on the front cover and spine strong. The dustwrapper is bright and attractive free from any major defect but for a large chip at the head of the spine, extending to 1-3/4" at its deepest and obliterating nearly all of the title. Near Fine in a Very Good dustwrapper [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      [Bookseller: Charles Agvent, est. 1987, ABAA, ILAB]
