Royal octavo - about 10.25 x 6.5" (26 x 16.5cm).

TEG - Top edges gilt, others untrimmed. 271pp. Designed, produced, and published by Christopher Sandford at the Golden Cockerel Press, 1-5 Poland Street, London. Composition and presswork under the supervision of C. R. Roberts. Compositors: E. D. Firmin and V. D. Green. Pressman: J. Bierman. Printed in 14 pt. Caslon Old Face type with Imprint Shadow titling in black, brown, and red on mould-made paper. (Originally sold at £7 10s.) Illustrated with 56 drawings in black and brown by Dorothea Braby. Sandford notes in Cock-A-Hoop, "The Labyrinth of Comenius is an allegory, in which the world is depicted as a city, and man as a pilgrim. After many vicissitudes - in the course of which we are shown a comprehensive picture of the social and political life of Central Europe in the early years of the seventeenth century - the pilgrim finds God, and his journey ends in a revelation of visionary joy. Count Lutzow's translation was made at the beginning of this century, in a noble style reminiscient of Bunyan's. "I made this a sister volume to Jurgen (No. 182), but gave it a completely different treatment to accord with its completely different theme. It was Dorothea Braby herself who suggested we should do the book which she greatly admired, and we readily agreed to her wish to illustrate it with pen drawings in two colours. The text is broken into some 54 parts, and so as not to overpower the drawings we set the numbers heading each part, and the initial letters, in Imprint Shadow type." Good Condition - some light soiling to cover (moreso to lower board), a bit of yellowing in vertical patches to cloth of lower board, spine somewhat sun darkened, corners and head/foot of spine bumped, front inner hinge starting (a few small tears to the gutter of the endpapers), an Ex-Library copy with the only marking a bookplate of the St. Felix School to the front pastedown endpaper with "Special Interest Book" written on the bookplate in black ink, Braby's presentation leaf mounted to the front free endpaper opposite, foxing to both plates and some foxing to edges and gutters of endpapers and the following blanks (and rarely elsewhere within), pages edges lightly browned, brown speckling to some page edges and occasional brown smudges along margins (probably from/during printing), an occasional other smudge or light mark.

        The King of Siam Speaks (Mimeographed Manuscript) [RARE]

      NP 1950 - 1959?, Bangkok - Work is a compilation of letters and selected documents issued during the reign of King Mongkut (Rama IV), (1804 - 1868), who was king of Siam from 1851 to 1868. Most Thai were shocked by the portrayal of their revered nineteenth-century king in the musical "The King and I" by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II. The stage and screen versions were based on Margaret Landon's 1944 book "Anna and the King of Siam." To set the record straight, well-known Thai intellectuals Seni Pramoj and Kukrit Pramoj wrote this account in 1948. The Pramoj brothers sent their manuscript to the American politician and diplomat Abbot Low Moffat (1901-1996), who drew on it for his biography "Mongkut the King of Siam" (1961). Loose-leaf mimeograph manuscript. All pages are present and in a cardboard slipcase. In very good - fine condition. Historians have widely regarded Mongkut as one of the most remarkable kings of the Chakri Dynasty. Prince Mongkut was five years old when his father succeeded to the throne in 1809. According to the law of succession, he was the first in line to the throne; his influential half-brother, Nangklao (1788 - 1851), was strongly supported by the nobility to assume the throne. Prince Mongkut decided to enter the Buddhist priesthood and traveled in exile across Thailand, during which time he founded the Thammayut Nikaya Reform Movement (a sect of Theravada Buddhism) that later became one of the two denominations of Buddhism in Thailand. Mongkut's aim was to upgrade monastic discipline and make it more orthodox, after noticing what he saw as serious discrepancies between the teachings and actual practices of Thai monks. Prince Mongkut spent the following 27 years integrating Western knowledge with Thai culture, studying Latin, English, astronomy and the arts.

        Collection of letters, drafts, and research notes. Manuscripts, page proofs, etc., in Portuguese.

      , , @1880s-1950s. - Written in Dantas's small but legible hand. About 725 leaves dating from the 1880s to the 1950s, with concentrations in the late 1880s and 1930s to 1940s. Includes many notes scribbled on the back of letters, typed copy, page proofs, etc. Most 8º, but ranging from 7 x 7 cm. to folio size., Overall in good to very good condition. ---- Physician, playwright, poet, journalist, diplomat and academic, Júlio Dantas (Lagos, 1876-Lisbon, 1962) remains one of the best-known modern Portuguese writers. @A ceia dos cardeaes, his most popular work, went through 48 editions from 1902 to 1962, with translations into French, Spanish, Catalan, Italian, English, German, Swiss, Danish, and Japanese. Its influence may also be judged by the fact that Campos Ferreira Lima lists no fewer than 49 parodies of it. The opening salvo of the Portuguese Modernist movement was José de Almada Negreiros's @Manifesto anti-Dantas (1915), an exceedingly rare work. Almost the entire edition of this ferocious attack was said to have been purchased and then destroyed by Júlio Dantas. Son of a military officer, Dantas attended Lisbon's Colégio Militar, then studied medicine at the University of Lisbon. He served as a physician in the Portuguese army, specializing in psychiatry. In 1893 he published his first article, in @Novidades. His first book of verse, @Nada, appeared in 1896; his first play, @O que morreu de amor, was staged in 1899. Numerous dramas and novels on historical subjects followed, the most famous of which was @A ceia dos cardeaes (The Cardinals' Supper), 1902. His @A Severa was made into the first Portuguese film with sound in 1931.Dantas was also a prominent public figure, as Inspector das Bibliotecas Eruditas e Arquivos (1912), president of the Academia das Ciências de Lisboa (1922), minister of Education (1920), minister of Foreign Affairs (1921-1922, 1923), and ambassador to Brazil (1941-1949).This collection falls into 7 parts:Part A: Material from Dantas's years at the Real Colegio Militar, ca. 1888Part B: Dramatic worksPart C: Essays, speeches, booksPart D: Clippings and page proofsPart E: Notes and articles for researchPart F: Miscellaneous items by Dantas, including curricula vitaePart G: Mementoes, official documents, etc.Part A: Material from Dantas's years at the Real Colegio Militar, ca. 18881.

Ad 3: FIRST EDITION, 1st issue in green wrappers (2nd issue is in white wrappers); text browned as commonly, wrappers somewhat soiled from use; two die-cut paper roundels laid in (one printed, the other MS) Highly curious assemblage of First Edition Scientology books with an intriguing provenance: WILLIAM LINDSAY GRESHAM (1909-1962), acclaimed and reviled author of the extremely weird and wonderful "Nightmare Alley" (1946), one of the finest, and surely one of the most grotesque American Noir thrillers. The story, arranged in 22 chapters according to the major arcana of the Tarot, concerns a carnival of twisted carny hucksters. The book (the author's first) appalled yet enthralled contemporary readers. Alan Prendergast praises the work, while at the same time declaring that "It is the only novel I have ever encountered that made me feel *unclean* by the time I had finished it [.] Nightmare Alley offers an elaborately conceived and well-executed plot and structure -- the primary virtues of solid genre fiction -- in the service of a searing vision of humanity's capacity for betrayal and self-deception [.] The novel is a high-wire act that takes crime writing to a dark and lonely place, a journey that makes the more typically hardboiled efforts of Chandler, Hammett, Cain or McCoy seem almost sunny in comparison" (SOURCE: "One Man's Nightmare: The Noir Journey of William Lindsay Gresham," Writers Chronicle, Vol. 38, no. 6, Summer 2006, pp. 14-15). The film rights were almost instantly sold to Hollywood, and in 1947 emerged one of the great American noir films of all time. Prendergrast states that "Gresham came to regard the instant success of his book as a personal catastrophe -- one of those noir moments in which the hero finally attains the glittering object of his desire, only to find out it's a cheap brass ring." After the success of Nightmare Alley, Gresham's life and career took a seemingly irreversible turn for the worse, and with wanton abandon he descended into a real-time nightmare alley of his own: alcoholism, flagrant infidelity, and violence. By 1948 he was nearly bankrupt (financially and psychologically) despite attempts at Christianity and Alcoholics Anonymous. * Enter L. Ron Hubbard, the science fiction writer who had visited Gresham at his home in upstate New York. Gresham became an early enthusiast of Hubbard's "Dianetics," the 1950 self-help book. "Gresham's letters of the time are laced with Scientology jargon about getting 'lock chains scanned off and engrams reduced' and having 'my service facsimiles run off by experts.' Although he later renounced dianetics as the kind of hokum the Great Stanton might have perpetrated, his temporary immersion in Hubbard's ideas drove yet another wedge between him and his wife, Joy Davidman" (Pendergrast, p. 18). Therefore it was a moment of "noir" Anagnorisis when we discovered an old newspaper clipping about Davidman's second novel "Weeping Bay" (1950) loosely inserted into the very copy of "Dianetics" that served to alienate the estranged couple even further. It is not without interest that 1950 marks the publication date of "Dianetics" and the year Davidman began her vigorous correspondence with C.S. Lewis, whom she would marry after her inevitable divorce from Gresham. * The present volumes, all present here in First Edition, and all containing annotations by Gresham, appear to be the only record of his failed efforts in Scientology. The Marion E. Wade Center at Wheaton College, designated repository of the Gresham papers, does not possess any of his correspondence with L. Ron Hubbard; nor is there anything relating to Gresham's involv [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Poemes de Charles d'Orleans

      Teriade Editeur Verve 1950 - One of the original sets of 1200 lithograph copies of Matisse’s original, which was done in color pencil and crayon. The text is a selection of Charles’ poems that Matisse wrote out in hand in French. He then added fleur de lis decorations and hand drawn borders, all in various colors. Slightly more than 100 pages and more than 50 original lithographs, loose in sets of four pages each, housed in illustrated wrappers. A beautiful set with only slight offsetting on some internal pages. The acetate protector on the wrappers is yellowed and has a closed tear bottom left of front cover. Signed by Matisse in pencil on the limitation page. This is copy number 778. The protective cardboard box is in Poor condition, soiled and faded, with splits at the seams and one long, folding flap detached. Even though the number produced was large, intact copies are quite rare – presumably because many copies were broken and sold separately as single Matisse lithographs. This production is widely considered one of the most important illustrated books ever done. Included is a note from M. J. Royer, Antiquarian Bookseller and Gallery of Fine and Applied Arts, Los Angeles, to “Mrs. Tarr” stating that he has located this copy in Europe. The note is dated Dec. 4, 1958; additionally there is an Invoice for the purchase dated 14 Feb. ’59. Special shipping will be required at extra cost. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Across the River and Into the Trees

      New York: Charles Scribners 1950 - First edition, advance issue. Dark blue cloth with gilt stamping, one of 25 copies bound for presentation. Signed and inscribed by Hemingway three weeks prior to publication: "For Ben Meyer / from his friend / Ernest Hemingway. / Havana 21/8/50". With original letter and envelope, from Mary Hemingway to Ben Meyer, on Finca Vigia San Francisco de Paula Cuba stationery. Book is lightly bumped to lower corners, else an extremely bright and fine copy. Housed in a custom folding leather and cloth case lettered and ruled in gilt. Ben Meyer was a journalist who traveled to Cuba to interview Hemingway about his latest novel, Across the River and Into the Trees. In the article, Meyer quotes Hemingway as being very pleased with his new work, and describes Hemingway’s house (Finca Vigia, Lookout Farm) and his daily activities. Published first in the Kansas City Star on 10 September, 1950, Meyer’s article celebrates the publication of Across the River, a book Hemingway himself stated "is about love and death, happiness and sorrow and the town of Venice. I really fired all the barrels on this one." Meyer stayed in contact with the Hemingways, as evidenced in the letter to him from Mary Hemingway, dated 1958, thanking him for photos he sent to her of her hometown, Bemidji, MN. Conversations with Ernest Hemingway, Bruccoli, 1986. Originally published serially in Cosmopolitan from February - June 1950, Across the River and Into the Trees tells the story of American Colonel Richard Cantwell during the last day of his life as he recalls his experiences in war and love as a younger man in Venice. Hemingway took the title of this novel from the last words of General Thomas J. ("Stonewall") Jackson, quoted on page 307: "Let us cross over the river and rest under the shade of the trees." Like much of his writing, this novel is highly autobiographical. Also in typical Hemingway fashion, Across the River utilizes the Iceberg Theory, in which the true essence of the story is not expressly said in the plot but rather is meant to be inferred.
