        The Official Record of a Court of Inquiry convened at Chicago, Illinois, January 13, 1879, by THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES upon the request of Major MARCUS A. RENO, 7th U.S Cavalry to investigate his conduct at the battle of the LITTLE BIG HORN, June 25-26, 1876 (INSCRIBED)

      Pacific Palisades, Calif: W.A. Graham, 1951. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. 589 p. Inscribed by Author(s). Limited Edition of 125 copies, this being number 75, inscribed by the author (see bio below). ***ABOUT THE BOOK: "Among the accounts of white participants the most important book by far is [this one], published in 1951. Other than the contemporary newspaper accounts of these court proceedings in 1879, this is the first printing of the record. This record was not released from the War Department, Judge Advocate General's Office, to the National Archives until 1941. It was 1951 before Graham published this record in an edition limited to 125 copies" (Of which this book is one.) "No other work contains such a wealth of eye-witness accounts. All the surviving officers of the battle testified as well as some of the enlisted men and civilians." (Quotes from Custeriana bibliography cited below.) ***ABOUT THE AUTHOR: William Alexander Graham (1875-1954) was a lawyer and served in the military with the JAG, and therefore was imminently qualified to undertake the research and write the introduction for this book. ***ABOUT THE INSCRIBEE: Dr. Gabriel Segall (1895-1963) was born in Libau, Latvia and was naturalized as a U.S. Citizen in 1929 in Los Angeles. He settled in LA and is mentioned, along with his wife and son, in the 1940 LA census, occupation Physician. Per some oral histories done by the University of California, Berkeley, Dr. Segall was a good friend of Albert Einstein, confirmed via documents in the Einstein Archives Online, including a telegram sent by the Segalls to Einstein on March 14, 1939 (day the Nazis invaded Czechoslovakia). ***DESCRIPTION: Light brown cloth boards with gilt rules and lettering on the spine, plain endpapers, author's inscription on flyleaf, limitation statement on page preceding title page with a note about the printing of the book (appears as mimeograph), printed on recto only. Introductory chapter written by Col. Graham and the Appendix, followed by a separate title page for the transcripts, then an Index with a list of Exhibits and Errata, the transcript which runs through page 556, and the Exhibits which end at page 575 which include a battlefield map and end with General Sherman's action. ***CONDITION: Overall in fine condition, with a strong, square text block (unusual for such a large, heavy volume), solid hinges (we recently had the front hinge professionally repaired), clean interior free of all prior owner markings other than the inscription by the author referred to above. We are grading as near fine only due to very slight wear at the head and tail of the spine, some minor bumping to the corners, and a few very minor scratches to the rear board. ***CITATION: Swinford and Luther 45. ***POSTAGE: Please note that this is an extremely large and heavy book, the standard shipping will not cover the cost and additional postage will apply for both domestic and international orders; we are happy to ship at cost, please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        At Swim-Two-Birds

      New York: Pantheon, 1939 [but 1951]. First Printing ("First published 1939" on copyright page, but actually 1951). 8vo: 316pp. Publisher's navy blue cloth spine lettered in yellow, yellow paper-covered boards titled in black, yellow typographic dust jacket printed in black and priced $3.00. Absolutely Fine, square, tight and bright (probably unread); Fine jacket slightly toned to flap folds. An absolutely exemplary example. The true first edition, published by Longmans in 1939, is a legendary rarity, though Graham Greene, comparing At Swim both to Tristram Shandy and Ulysses, had the text in mind when he called it "a book in a thousand." Burgess 99, p. 27. O'Nolan's first novel concerns a "student who is writing a novel about an author, also writing a novel, whose characters begin to write about him. The frame for At Swim's many narratives is an autobiographical portrait of the artist as a young student in 1930s Dublin. Like James Joyce's Stephen Dedalus [Joyce said At Swim contains 'the true comic spirit'], the student is fond of expounding his literary theories and puts them into practice in the manuscript he is composing. This manuscript forms the greater part of At Swim, but it is regularly interrupted by the student's 'biographical reminiscences' (and other digressions). . . . The result is a farrago of literary styles . . . The rationale behind this curious structure is impeccably modern (if not exactly modernist). While still in university, O'Nolan had collaborated with some friends on what they called a 'ready-made' novel, Children of Destiny. It was to be a novel produced by assembly-line, each contributor taking a chapter and filling it to the utmost with the fictional clichés that would guarantee a best-seller. Children of Destiny was never completed and did not survive, but At Swim-Two-Birds certainly inherited its cut-and-paste philosophy." (Literary Encyclopedia) "At Swim-Two-Birds is probably a masterpiece. . . . It is a very Irish book and very funny. But it still awaits the popularity it deserves." (Burgess) Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. Fine / Fine.

        A Question of Upbringing [Dance to the Music of Time]

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1951. First Printing (with A on copyright page). 8vo: [8],230pp. Publisher's blue cloth, spine lettered in silver, dust jacket illustrated by Frededric E. Banbery, printed in black and priced $2.75. A Fine copy, firmly and squarely bound, Fine jacket, spine panel very lightly toned. A superb example, virtually pristine and likely unread, scarce in such collectable, unrestored condition. Time 100. The first installment in Powell's monumental 12-volume literary landmark, which firmly cemented his place in the pantheon of modern English authors. "Beginning in the 1920 s, A Dance to the Music of Time follows the lives of a group of English friends and acquaintances as they make their various ways through life: meeting and parting, succeeding and failing, loving and hating, living and dying. There is ample room for both comedy and tragedy in this capacious, large-hearted work, but Powell's real triumph is the way he catches the rhythm of fate itself, the way it brings people together, only to spin them apart, then reunite them later as near-strangers, transformed in unexpected ways by the intervening years."

        The Goshawk

      London; Jonathan Cape. 1951. 8vo. Original cherry red cloth with vignette in blind to upper board, lettered in silver to spine, top edge red, preserved in pictorial red dustwrapper; pp. [x], 11-215; with a couple of diagrams in the text; a very fresh copy, both externally and internally, protected by the unclipped, dustwrapper (10s. 6d.) with slight dusting to spine, otherwise fresh and attractive; scarce. First edition. White's classic account of his struggle to train a goshawk has begun to be rediscovered after featuring heavily in Helen MacDonald's Costa Award-winning H is for Hawk (2014). She points out that White's book is as much a psychological drama as a book on falconry, and also identifies many ways in which his experiences with the hawk fed into his writing of The Once and Future King; White comes to resemble his hawk just as the young Arthur is transformed into a merlin. Although highly regarded by falconers, this book never became a bestseller, and is consequently difficult to find in nice condition.

        Wind in the Willows, The

      London: Methuen & Co. Ltd., 1951. The "One Hundredth Edition" of "Wind in the Willows" Bound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe for E. Joseph [RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. GRAHAME, Kenneth. The Wind in the Willows. Introduction by A.A. Milne. London: Methuen & Co., [1951]. "One hundredth edition." Limited to 500 numbered copies (of which this is number 313), printed on handmade paper. Large quarto (11 5/8 x 9 1/4 inches; 295 x 235 mm.). [2, blank], xii, 178 pp. Twelve mounted color plates (including frontispiece), twelve black and white vignette chapter headings, and three other black and white drawings. Bound ca. 1992 by Sangorski & Sutcliffe for E. Joseph (stamp-signed in gilt on front turn-in) in full cream crushed levant morocco. Covers ruled in gilt, front cover pictorially stamped in gilt to match the original 1951 cover design, spine paneled and lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt-ruled board edges and decorative gilt turn-ins, top edge gilt, others uncut, plain white endpapers. A fine copy. "This book was first issued on October 8th, 1908, since when it has been reprinted in a variety of editions, illustrated and unillustrated, 99 times. This one hundredth edition, published in 1951, is printed on handmade paper and is limited to 500 copies" (p. [iv]). Published originally by The Limited Editions Club in 1940 with sixteen color illustrations only, but not published in England until 1950 by Methuen. This is the first deluxe edition to have the twelve black and white vignette chapter headings, and the three other black and white drawings. "The book is a gentle delight, presenting illustrations which in no way fight with the more famous imaginative world created by Shepherd, although if Shepherd had not preceded him, then Rackham might have anthropomorphized his creatures even more. Several of the plates are delightful: The 'Golden Day when the three heroes walked by the Caravan, Mole leading a happy horse', (color-plate opposite page 18) and the placid Rat handing a hamper to put into a boat (color-plate opposite page 6), a plate famous among Rackham lovers because it was the boat for which Rackham forgot to draw the oars, an omission which some see as significant in view of the artist's imminent death. Perhaps the most interesting picture is the color-plate opposite page 98, which depicts the egocentric toad levelled to the drab clothes of a no-pocket washer woman, hopping about permissively, totally unequipped for the real contest. In the real world of people, like all egoists, animal or human, he is alien, and it is a typical piece of Rackhamerie that we should see two children laughing at the glum toad, not because he is a toad, but because he is obviously pretending to be something else". (Gettings, Arthur Rackham. pp 168-169). Riall, p. 200.
