"The principal feature of this volume is the printing in full of Matthew Flinders’ narrative of his voyage in the schooner ‘Francis’ in 1788.Flinders’ voyage in the ‘Francis’ was but a minor incident in his long and varied career. He made so many important voyages, encountered so many desperate hazards and adventures, and, as the greatest navigator of his time, made so many important marine surveys. But this first printing of his own carefully written manuscript, as he left it, has its interest and its value in the literature of marine exploration." ‘.[T]he voyage and wreck of the ‘Sydney Cove’ were the cause of very important developments in the early history of New South Wales. The voyage itself was a very early attempt to open up overseas trade with the newly-founded settlement. The wreck of the ship and the escape of part of the crew along the coast led to the discoveries of coal. The existence of the wreck was directly responsible for Flinders’ voyage in the ‘Francis’. The mission on which the ‘Francis’ was bound, and the reasons for why Flonders was so anxious to take passage in her are amply explained in the text.’ The notes on Flinders, Bass, the wreck of the ‘Sidney Cove’, etc. are significant and important additions to the body of the work here presented with John Buckland Wright’s superb woodcut illustrations and the fine press work of the Golden Cockerel Press. This is a very pleasing copy of the rare first edition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      [London] 1946 - Edition limited to 750 copies, folio, pp. 100-[102]; full-p. map, frontispiece, title vignette, and 6 handsome wood-engravings printed in green; previous owner's bookplate, else fine in orig. green cloth stamped in gilt, t.e.g. "This is another book of daring exploration in our Sea Series. I tried to produce these stories of high adventure in an exciting way, and planned to make the book a symphony in green. I even thought of scenting the paper with seaweed, and imagined clients commenting to each other: Strange thing about this book - it seems to bring a breath of the sea! The idea was humorously reported by my friend Robert Harling in Alphabet and Image, and I now hear that some advertisers are using my idea by scenting their paper suitably to obtain particular effects. The printing of John Buckland-Wright's magnificent engravings in green ink on gray-green paper was not entirely successful, as it diminished the essential brilliance obtained only by a contrast of full blacks on whites"" (Christopher Sandford, the printer, in Cockalorum, Bibliography of the Golden Cockerel Press, 170).

        Etching from Alternance.

      (N.p. Le Gerbier 1946) - One of 340 copies. Color etching measuring 7 3/4 by 6 1/2 inches by Marie Laurencin, a contemporary of Picasso and Braque, depicting an angel with a small guitar in her lap. Although Laurencin was one of a few women artists of the time to experiment with Cubist ideas, her focus on female subjects is often viewed as a response to Cubism's masculine modernism. This etching is from the book Alternance, a collection of works by leading writers and artists after World War II that includes Jean Cocteau, Paul Eluard, and Henri Matisse. Matted and framed in an antique-style carved wooden frame by Heydenryk in New York. The whole measures 14 by 13 inches.

        THE PARADINE CASE.

      [Culver City]: Vanguard Films, Inc., 12 August and 10 August 1946. - Two volumes. [1],195;[1],205 leaves. Quarto. Mimeographed typescripts, printed on rectos only. Bradbound in stencil printed wrappers. Wrappers slightly nicked and soiled, one upper wrapper detached at upper brad, but very good. A studio rerun of a the 16 April "First Rough Draft (With Dialogue from Novel)" of this adaptation to the screen of Hichens' 1933 novel, accompanied by a first run of the "Third Draft Script." The first draft is credited exclusively to Alfred Hitchcock and his collaborator wife, Alma Reville; the third draft is identified as by James Bridie, based on an adaptation by Alama Reville. According to one source, Selznick had acquired the film rights to the novel prior to its publication, but submission of a preliminary script in 1934 to the Breen Office resulted in assurances that it would not pass muster according to the PCA. So the project was shelved until Selznick returned to it in 1946. It is clear that at that time, scripts from the 1934 effort, as well as from an adaptation attempted at MGM were consulted. In December, the "Final Shooting Script" was reached, after interim contributions by Ben Hecht. The final shooting script is credited solely to David O. Selznick, but acknowledges dependence on the adaptation by Alma Reville. Final screen credit for the screenplay fell to Selznick, and neither Hecht's nor Birdie's contributions were credited. Hitchcock directed, and Gregory Peck, Ann Todd, Charles Laughton, Ethel Barrymore In a role that earned an Oscar nomination) and Louis Jourdan starred, among others, and a 29 December 1947 premiere brought to a conclusion the long and tangled series of attempts to bring Hichens' novel to the screen.

        NIGHTMARE ALLEY

      Rinehart and Company, Inc., (1946)., 1946. First edition. Author's first book. Very lightly foxed on front and rear endpapers, else fine in dust jacket with light professional restoration to spine ends and top edge of rear panel. The source for the troubling 1947 noir film in which Tyrone Power portrayed a charismatic carnival hustler eventually done in by his own arrogance. Stanton Carlisle starts off as a small-time magician in a travelling show. The show's kindhearted mentalist teaches him the art of fortune telling, but Carlisle soon makes a bid for more elaborate cons. He ascends to high society parlors and becomes addicted to the idea of tricking the wealthy. How he ends up selling his act to a skeptical, high-powered industrialist is a study in both psychological savvy and moral deterioration. Cons always rely as much on intuition as on sleight-of-hand, so it's no surprise that Carlisle's downfall comes from his own lack of self-understanding. After manipulating so many people for so long, he ends up as the stooge for the one person who could outthink him: his therapist lover. An exceptional copy.
