First editions, all published. Uncommon. An excellent set of these important works of naval ethnography, forming a series on boat construction around the world. The series was planned as a supplement to Admiral François-Edmond Paris' famous Souvenirs de Marine Conservés … , first published in 1877, the Fascicule Introductif including an index to Paris' work, and reprinting his five plates of the Bateaux de Cochinchine. Each fascicule offers a detailed account of the boat-building techniques of a particular region, comprising; Les Jonques des Chinois du Siam; Pirogues et Ca-vom de l'Ouest Cochinchinois; Les Barques de Mer de Rachgia; La Machoua de Versova; and Les Barques du Moyen Niger. It was an ambitious project, planned under the direction of the Centre de Recherche Culturelle de la Route des Indes in Djibouti, the series was also projected encompass sections on "ethnographie terrestre" and "archéologie terrestre". However when the Parisian publisher Gauthier-Villars folded, the project collapsed. These five thematic fascicules, together with the sixth introductory part - "exposant les idées générales" of the collection - appear to have been all that were published.

        Snow Goose, The

      London: Michael Joseph, 1946. - Beautifully Illustrated by Peter ScottHandsomely Bound by Sangorski & SutcliffeGALLICO, Paul. SCOTT, Peter, illustrator. The Snow Goose. London: Michael Joseph, [1946]. Edition Deluxe limited to seven hundred and fifty copies printed on mould-made paper and signed by the author and artist (this being copy # 294). Quarto (11 1/16 x 8 5/8 inches; 281 x 220 mm.). 64 pp., including 4 full-page tipped-in color plates and numerous line drawings in the text.Bound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe ca. 1946 (stamp-signed on front turn-in) in full blue crushed levant morocco, boards triple-ruled in gilt, spine with five raised bands, paneled and lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt board-edges and turn-ins, Cockerel end-papers, top edge gilt, others uncut. The absolute bare minimum of fading to spine, a very fine copy.Paul William Gallico (1897-1976) was an American novelist, short story and sports writer. Many of his works were adapted for motion pictures. He is perhaps best remembered for The Snow Goose, his only real critical success, and for the novel The Poseidon Adventure, primarily through the 1972 film adaptation."The Snow Goose is a simple, short written parable on the regenerative power of friendship and love, set against a backdrop of the horror of war. It documents the growth of a friendship between Philip Rhayader, an artist living a solitary life in an abandoned lighthouse in the marshlands of Essex because of his disabilities, and a young local girl, Fritha. The Snow Goose, symbolic of both Rhayader (Gallico) and the world itself, wounded by gunshot and many miles from home, is found by Fritha and, as the human friendship blossoms, the bird is nursed back to flight, and revisits the lighthouse in its migration for several years. As Fritha grows up, Rhayader and his small sailboat eventually are lost in the British retreat from Dunkirk, having saved several hundred men. The bird, which was with Rhayader, returns briefly to the grown Fritha on the marshes. She interprets this as Rhayader's soul taking farewell of her (and realizes she had come to love him). Afterwards, a German pilot destroys Rhayader's lighthouse and all of his work, except for one portrait Fritha saves after his death: a painting of her as Rhayader first saw her—a child, with the wounded snow goose in her arms." This image appears as the color frontispiece.Sir Peter Markham Scott (1909-1989) was a British ornithologist, conservationist, painter, naval officer and sportsman. He was the son of the Antarctic explorer, Robert Falcon Scott was named after Sir Clements Markham, mentor of Scott's polar expeditions. His Godfather was J.M. Barrie, the creator of Peter Pan.

Immediately you know what you have to work with. You are in a clearing in the forest. Well marked roads branch out before you." The 42nd Parallel, 1919 and The Big Money were originally published in 1930, 1932 and 1936 respectively.

First edition of this unusual and uncommon - no copies traced on OCLC - Pabst Blue Ribbon Company salesman's sample catalogue and advertising manual. Divided into several bulletins, which were to be continually updated by the Pabst Brewing sales force and which detail the brewing process, Pabst operations, how to place beer cases on the floor, what kind of signage needed to be located in their prospective selling location, a detailed history of the company, and much more. One of the large folding colour diagrams details the brewing process in a colour cut-away view of a Pabst Brewery detailing the innovations by Pabst, including the first use of mash filters in America, sterile air in connection with large open coolers, bottom fermentation yeast for brewing lager beer, sterile liquefying of fermentation carbon dioxide, market beer in cans nationally, and high pressure speed bottle filters. Pabst had originated the use of a blue ribbon tag to be affixed to each bottle or beer in 1882 in order identify their brew. By 1889 they were advertising this blue ribbon, and promoting it as a "Select" brand. Of special interest is the wonderful sample leaf with its original period samples offers an invaluable historical reference for the brewing ingredients and processes in post-World War II America. From collection of Robert Horner, former regional sales agent for Pabst who fortunately ignored the directives to destroy the earlier portions of the manual.

Now famed for his 'pulp fiction', Stephen Daniel Frances, launched Pendulum Publication as WWII was ending. Pendulum then published this, his first novel, semi-autobiographical it did not sell well. For some reason his name is spelt 'Francis' on the front board but correctly 'Francis' on the title page. With the failure of this to sell and two other novels unpublished Francis took advice and changed genre. American 'hard-boiled' crime fiction was selling well and Francis wrote and sold 'When Dames Get Tough' in 1946, using the pen-name of 'Hank Janson' who also featured in the story. And so 'Hank Janson' was introduced to an enthusiastic book buying public. Book - [SEE SCAN] - in Near Very Good brown boards with black lettering - some marking to the front board and marking to the back board although this probably happened when the book was originally bound, light bumping and wearing to the extreme corners and extreme ends of the spine. Contents, light marking to the pastedowns and front and rear free endpaper otherwise clean, bright and tightly bound. A Rare and Highly Collectable Title for any Janson completist.

        London The Bastion of Liberty

      London.: Chromoworks, Limited.. Ca. 1946.. Color pictographic / pictorial map poster, 38 1/2 x 48 1/2 inches (97 x 123cm), folded (probably as issued). 1/2 inch separations at the intersection of several of the folds, one of which has a 1/2 inch tear leading from that separation; overall in very good clean condition. This attractive pictorial map by artist Kerry Lee dates from the period 1945 to 1948. It is a post World War II celebration of London and the British spirit with Winston Churchill's words in the banner at upper right: "We would rather see London in ruins and ashes than that it should be tamely and abjectly enslaved," with evident reference to the fall of Paris. It was issued in different sizes over the years (this being the largest and the earliest; this printing also has a slightly glossy print quality). The main railway stations are named according to railway company (LNER etc) with additional location name (King's Cross etc) (newer versions of this map name only by location, following the nationalisation of the railway system in 1948). The Festival Hall has not yet been built (so pre 1951), with 'County Hall' being named in its place. The map shows the area of London from Earl's Court Road in the west to The City in the East, and from Regent's Park in the north to Lambeth and Bermondsey in the south. Bordering the map are vignettes of London attractions and important places (Epsom is the lower centre vignette) with coat of arms at the top centre. The map names and depicts important buildings (including all the major department stores along Oxford Street) and is liberally sprinkled with pictographs of historical characters. The publishing line at lower edge reads at left "Published in Great Britain by Chromoworks, Limited." At right: "Copyright in all countries. Published by The Travel Association of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, 6 Arlington Street, London, S.W. 1, England, for the Sole Distributors Messrs Sydney Walton and W. E. Bevan (all enquiries to the Blandford Studios, 71 Blandford Street, London, W.1.)" .

        Tributes and Other Relevant Documents

      Stamford: The Overbrook Press 1946 - 8vo., blue cloth and red cover label lettered in gilt. First edition, first printing, one of 200 copies. A presentation copy, inscribed: "To my friend and associate Philip C. Jessup, with kindest regards and very sincere appreciation of his unfailing encouragement and assistance in making a great international agency for peace and good will among peoples of the world, Herbert H. Lehman, March 28, 1947," on the front endpaper. [Together with] Jessup's copy of "Funeral Service for Hon. Herbert H. Lehman, December 8, 1963" (Stamford: The Overbrook Press, 1963; 8vo., gray wrappers printed in black). ---- The recipient, Philip C. Jessup, a judge on the International Court of Justice at The Hague and veteran U.S. diplomat, was credited with playing a major role in ending the Soviet blockade of West Berlin. Jessup was a representative to the United Nations General Assembly, as well as a U.S. ambassador at large from 1949 until his resignation in 1953. During that time, he was one of the closest advisers of then-Secretary of State Dean Acheson. Meanwhile, from 1943 until 1946, as director of the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration, Lehman directed the largest international relief effort in history: 24 million tons of food, clothing, and medical supplies to 500 million victims of world war. After Jessup was maligned by Senator Joe McCarthy for purported communist "affinities," General Dwight D. Eisenhower heralded Jessup's "devotion to the principles of Americanism." McCarthy's charges kept Jessup from being reappointed to the U.S. delegation to the United Nations in 1951 but President Harry S. Truman made him an alternate delegate the following year. Like Jessup, when Senator Lehman fought McCarthyism, his colleagues told him he was committing political suicide. But Lehman said, "I will not compromise with my conscience. I will cast my vote to protect the liberties of our people." Voters respected his integrity and reelected him to the Senate. A compelling presentation copy.
