        Patience Abbe collection of Three signed association copies of first editions books, ASL and B&W photo

      1969. . • Three signed association copies of first editions in slightly chipped jackets of Patience, Richard, and John Abbe's three books: - Around the World in Eleven Years (New York: Frederick A. Stokes, 1936), signed inscription, 3 February 1969, by Patience Abbe to François Leydet, her second husband and the author of the Sierra Club Books; - Of All Places (New York: Frederick A. Stokes, 1937), signed by all three children for Cecil B. De Mille, with his bookplate; - No Place Like Home (New York: Julian Messner, 1940), signed by all three children for Cecil B. De Mille, with his bookplate. • ALS to Henry Roe (Librarian at St. Thomas Public Library, Ont.), written in pencil, 19 June 1936, with envelope, thanking him for his comments about Around the World in Eleven Years. "I would like to come up to Canada in the Winter time to see the dogs pulling the sleighs…. I would like to see the Canadein Mountend so maby papa will drive us down there. If we come I will come and see you." With a b&w photo of Richard, John and Patience Abbe. Books and documents housed in a blue cloth pictorial clamshell box. Patience Abbe (1924-2012) was only 11 when the memoir she wrote with her two brothers, "Around the World in Eleven Years," climbed onto the bestseller lists for grown-ups in 1936. As the siblings recounted their nomadic childhood in Europe and subsequent move to America, their exuberant behavior and unaffected observations charmed readers. Patience observed that a woman with children could always get a seat on a Paris bus "no matter how first the others were." Her career as an author peaked at age 15 after the young globe-trotters published two more books. They recounted their adventures living in Hollywood in "Of All Places!" and documented a trip to prewar Europe and life on their Colorado ranch in "No Place Like Home." Patience's first husband was Brendan O'Mahoney, with whom she had two daughters, Catherine and Shelley, before the marriage ended in divorce in 1954. She later married Francois Leydet, author, whose books included the Sierra Club books "The Last Redwoods" and, with David Brower, "Time and the River Flowing." Patience helped to edit those Sierra Club Books. Abbe died March 17 of natural causes in Redding, her family announced. She was 87. She was born July 22, 1924, in Paris to American expatriates, noted photographer James Abbe and his wife, Polly, a former Ziegfeld girl. This collection is on consignment with LDRB.

      New York: Maecenas Press - Random House,, 1969. Folio. Publisher's solander box of brown straight-grain morocco by Cartonnages Adine (Paris), leather-and-horn ties, gilt lettered spine, black silk portfolios for letterpress and illustrations, lettered in gilt on front covers. With all the original packaging material, including the shipping box. 12 colour heliogravures and a four-colour etched frontispiece on Rives paper; together with a second suite of 12 plates on Japon Nacre paper. Title page, divisional titles and initial letters printed in bisque. An excellent copy. First and limited Dalí edition, number XII of 200 copies, signed by Dali at the foot of the frontispiece and on the title page. "The artist Salvador Dalí, famous for his surreal images of melting clocks and barren landscapes, at first glance might not seem to have much in common with a retiring Victorian English don who wrote children's books. But actually, Dalí and Carroll had much in common: both men were ardent explorers of dreams and the imagination, attempting in their art to show the fertile pathways to the unconscious. This artistic temperament might explain why, in his sixties, Dalí created twelve surreal illustrations - one for each chapter - for Alice in Wonderland. Because he required a rich, lush palette for his painted drawings, Dalí turned to the oldest process for reproducing photographic images for printing: heliogravure. Similar to engraving, the method is time consuming and costly. Each heliogravure is printed by hand and considered an original" (Catherine Nichols, Alice's Wonderland: a Visual Journey through Lewis Carroll's Mad, Mad World, 2014, p. 28). One of the most extraordinary and beautiful editions of Alice.

        Biological Journal of the Linnean Society.

      8vo. 103 volumes in more than 400 parts, plus indices for all volumes except 1-3, 17, 72, 73; original publisher's paper wrappers; Volume 10, Number 4 signed by the editor R.J. Berry; very slight browning to some of the earlier volumes, otherwise fine. A complete run of this august and important publication from the library of its former editor R.J. Berry. Berry, Emeritus Professor of Genetics at University College London, has had a long and distinguished career as an academic. He has written some of the most sought after volumes in the New Naturalist series, including The Natural History of Orkney and The Natural History of Shetland, as well as numerous academic papers and books. As a practising Christian he is also interested in the ramifications of Darwinism upon religious belief, and has written a number of works in support of the idea of evolutionary creationism, including God's Book of Works: The Nature and Theology of Nature, the text of his 1997-8 Glasgow Gifford Lectures. The Journal is the oldest biological journal in the world, having evolved out of the Linnean Society's Transactions in 1791. It was the only dedicated biological journal for many years and was the first organ to publish Darwin and Wallace's theories of natural selection in 1858. It was relaunched in a new format in 1969 and it is a complete run of the modern form of the Journal that is presented here. R.J. Berry's profound interest in genetics and evolution led him to fix decisively the direction of the Biological Journal. Berry made clear the distinctions between the Biological Journal and the Linnean Society's parallel Botanical and Zoological journals in a flier issued upon his becoming editor: "the Zoological and Botanical Journals have a proper and continuing morphological and taxonomic basis; it is our understanding and intention that the Biological journal should have a special emphasis on organic evolution in the broadest sense - from observation and theory to experiment and inference, including history and conservation. This will be firm editorial policy in the future". He assumed the editorship in September 1978 (Volume 10, Number 3) and carried on until April 1990 (Volume 39, Number 4), during which time the journal adopted the subtitle and focus that it has maintained to this day as 'A Journal of Evolution' (starting with Volume 33, Number 1). He has continued as an associate editor since stepping down. The breadth and depth of the learning displayed in these volumes is too great to be discussed in detail here; each issue contains valuable articles, arguments and controversies. It is worth highlighting a couple of issues, though, which bring the focus of the Journal on to Charles Darwin, the father of the evolutionary movement. Volume 17, Number 1 (February 1982) is devoted to commemorating the centenary of Darwin's death and shows the stamp of Berry's Christian perspective by including an article by the Bishop of Salisbury on the impact of evolutionary science on our understanding of Man's place in nature. Other pieces include a biographical article by R.B. Freeman, Darwin's bibliographer, J.R. Moore on the controversy surrounding Darwin's interment in Westminster Abbey and a prefatory paper by Berry himself. Volume 21, Numbers 1 & 2 (January/February 1984, published in one part) are devoted to the Galapagos Islands. Frank J. Sulloway contributes a piece on Darwin and the Galapagos, while the other articles show how modern naturalists have built on Darwin's work in the region. This is just a small glimpse into the range of expertise and approach displayed in this set of volumes. It represents the most intellectually rigorous and exhaustive body of work in evolutionary science over the last forty years and stands as a tribute to the vision of the editor from whose collection it has come.
