        The Second World War, full set of six British first editions

      London: Cassell and Company, Ltd., 1948. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good/Very good. This is Churchill's history of the epic struggle that was so indelibly stamped by his leadership. Seldom, if ever, has history endowed such a statesman with both singular ability to make history, and singular ability to write it. Churchill's eloquence and insight frames the world-defining events of his time in truly enduring prose. This six-volume epic has been called "indispensable reading for anyone who seeks a true understanding of the war that made us what we are today." Jacketed sets in marginal condition are not uncommon. However, the coarse cloth bindings of this edition proved susceptible to soiling and mildew, the contents proved highly prone to spotting, the red-stained top edges are most often severely faded, and the dust jackets proved exceptionally vulnerable to pronounced toning on the spines. Consequently, better jacketed sets have become scarce. Here is a quite respectable full set of six first editions, featuring very good or better volumes in very good or better first printing dust jackets. The coarse black cloth bindings are unusually fresh - square and clean with sharp corners, bright spine gilt, and virtually no wear. The contents are clean and bright. The sole previous ownership mark in the set is a decorative bookplate affixed to the Volume IV pastedown. There is no internal spotting; very mild spotting is confined to the fore edges. The red-stained top edges retain very good color, showing only mild signs of sunning on the top edges of the first four volumes. All six dust jackets are unclipped, still bearing the original prices on the front flaps. All six dust jackets are complete with no losses. Minor wear is confined to the spine ends and the sole sign of soiling is a small smudge at the head of the Volume V spine. All six dust jacket spines are only mildly toned, with all six red subtitles remaining quite clear. The dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers.

        Bird’s Eye View of the Town of Nantucket, State of Massachusetts. Looking Southwest

      This is a 1948 reprint by Wm. O. Lincoln of the original view, published in 1881, done by J.J. Stoner and published by Beck & Pauli. The original was sepia toned. This reprint has been colored, and the colors show wonderfully over the sepia toned paper. A few age spots, but generally in very good condition. Lest we forget, 1948 is a while back, too, and this print is genuinely scarce. Matted and shrinkwrapped on foam core.

        L' écho des fantaisies

      NP: ND [1948?] - NP: ND [1948?]. Louise Lévêque de Vilmorin (1902 - 1969) was a French novelist, poet and journalist, known for her mordant wit and various love affairs (including Antoine de Saint-Exupery, Count Paul Pálffy ab Erdöd, Orson Welles, Count Paul Esterházy de Galántha, Duff Cooper and André Malraux). Her works, particularly her most famous novel, Madame de, have been described as possessing a sense of libertinage and impertinence and are often set in aristocratic milieus. She was feared by many and her reputation as "femme de lettres and saloniste, legendary clotheshorse and tastemaker, brilliant hostess and home-wrecking man slayer" remains in tact today.Her most impressive production is this lavishly produced assemblage of 60 original photographs by Victor Grandpierre mounted on cardboard with rounded corners and gilded, each of which is accompanied by a short poem by Vilmorin. The photographs are arather surrealistic assemblage of ordinary household objects, as well as assorted antiques arranged to evoke the spirit of her poetry. Issued in an ediiton of 250 copies, the book was undoubtedly created as a gift for her friends. Two large clamshell boxes with marbled boards, paper labels. Very good, light edgewear, Quite uncommon.

Additionally with Eeman's signature and London address pencilled on the pastedown. The first poem in the collection is dedicated to her, as indicated on the author's "Note" page preceding the text.
