        MOBY DICK

      [Brattleboro, VT]: Limited Editions Club, 1943. Hardcover. These volumes are in Near Fine condition, the leather still supple with solid coloring. The spines are just a touch faded with a small rubbed spot at the heel of each volume and very slight wear to the head of the first. The slipcase is present and also in Near Fine condition. Scarce as such. Boardman Robinson. Two quarto volumes (7-1/2" x 10") bound in full dark sheepskin with gilt lettering on the spines. Copy #330 of 1000 with color and black-and-white plates after paintings by Boardman Robinson and SIGNED by the artist on the colophon page. One of the most difficult books of the press to obtain in decent condition because of the tendency of the leather to dry. When copies are seen, usually the binding is so dry it is crumbling. The limitation of 1000 copies is not stated, nor is the typical limitation of 1500 copies stated, but a letter from the publisher, George Macy, to this subscriber explains the limitation and is included here with book, as is the uncommon Monthly Letter.

        8" X 11" HAND-PRINTED PICTORIAL BROADSIDE ADVERTISING THE OGLALA DISTRICT FAIR & RODEO TO BE HELD SEPT. 17TH, 18TH, & 19TH, 1943. THREE BIG DAYS AT NO. 6 DAY SCHOOL. "COMBINED RELIGIOUS SERVICES BY ALL CHURCHES FOR OUR BOYS IN THEARMED FORCES."

      ca 1943., 1943. 8" X 11" broadside issued at the height of World War II, announcing a district fair and rodeo to be conducted over a three-day time period. Sept. 17th was for a combined religious services by all churches for our boys in the armed forces. Sept. 18th was an exhibition of livestock & farm products, Indian arts and crafts, Indian dances, and a rodeo. Sept. 19th was judging of livestock & farm products, Indian pageant & ceremonial dances, and a rodeo. An interesting statement listed on the broadside is DANCING EVERY EVENING, BOTH WHITE & INDIAN. Further noted on the broadside is "This will be the last Indian celebration this year and will be exceptionally good. Remember the dates, Sept.17-18-19th." The nicely colored letterhead is of five decorated teepees, several cooking fires and horses grazing in the foothills. On the reverse side is a very accurate color drawing of an Elk Clan visionary, holding a dance stick and hoop. The vision cult of the Sioux, the Elk Dreamers, possessed powers over the matters of love. The Sioux were impressed with the ability of the bull elk to attract females and consequently regarded the elk spirit as an aid in finding a mate for an Indian warrior. Their dance outfit, which is well executed in this drawing, consists of a triangular mask made of animal skins and antlers made from branches. A hoop and dance sticks with mirrors attached would have been carried as they danced with the belief that the mirrors would catch the sunlight and throw it into a young woman's eyes as she watched the dance. Thus a mate would be found. By the fact that the Elk Clan drawing is on the back of the fair and rodeo broadside may indicate that the Elk Clan were the sponsors of this particular event. A memorable and unique item in near fine condition.

From the moment he claims his cake, Rowe becomes a marked man. He is followed, threatened, attacked, betrayed, imprisoned, and nearly blown up. Through it all he tries to figure out what message is connected with the cake. Does it all point to a devious plot to threaten the allied cause and his beloved England?

        Le Petit Prince. Avec dessins de l'auteur. (The Little Prince). True first edition. Limited to only 260 copies signed by Saint-Exupery

      New York: Reynal & Hitchcock. Fine in Very Good dust jacket. 1943. First Limited Edition; First. Hardcover. The rarest (and the only true first) edition of the Prince. Number 119 of a scant war-time limited edition of only 260 copies printed in America from the author's original French manuscript. The first edition avoids the many mistranslations and loss of nuance in the English language translation of Katherine Woods (also published by Reynal in 1943 in an edition of 525). The 1943 American French language edition is the only edition taken from the original French manuscripts (both holographic & typewritten) and so can be the only editio princeps and inescapably the only first edition. The French language edition is also the more limited by the publisher (only 10 copies hors commerce; 250 numbered and signed copies). Even if the French & English language editions weren't printed simultaneously the French language edition is (and was most certainly intended by its author to be) the only first edition. Katherine Woods' bewilderingly inaccurate translation into English was dictated by the publisher and certainly unread by the author (who had a distain for English and who signed the limitation sheets before they were tipped in). One might (though Saint-Exupery certainly wouldn't) excuse her bowdlerized translation of the original French manuscript (e.g., rendering of "tippler" for what should have been translated as "drunkard," and substitution of "charming" for what should have rendered as "ravishing"), but not the grossly inaccurate translation of the author's French "ami" for the English "sheep": "Il était une fois un petit prince qui ___ avait besoin d'un ami" ("Once upon a time there was a little prince who ___had need of a friend") into "Once upon a time there was a little prince who ___had need of a sheep." Consider as well the mysterious (though less egregious) translation of "hanneton" (a beetle) as a "giddy goose" falling on the papers of the Businessman and her description of baobab trees as "large as castles" whereas the original French is (& is purposefully intended to be) "grands comme des églises." Chip to head of darkened spine jacket (see image). This is a clean unread copy brought to Ireland at publication and not revisited since: no ownership marks, no paper burns, no inserts, no labels, no restorations, no sophistications, no repairs, no additions, no alterations. Copyright 2014 William Chrisant, Virginia Book Shop, Inc.; Octavo; 93 pages; Signed by Author .
