        The Winchester Malory: A Facsimile

      London: Early English Text Society, 1976. First edition. Hardcover. Fine. Large, thick 4to. First edition. Gilt-lettered cloth boards. Facsimile of the 473-leaf manuscript. Cloth lightly rubbed, else this is a fine copy. Except for the introduction by Ker, the book is comprised entirely of photographs of the celebrated manuscript. The introduction discusses not only the paper and writing, but also the history of the manuscript, 'discovered' in 1934. It was known for at least 100 years prior to that date as a copy of the Morte d'Arthur, but dismissed as a defective copy of the text used by Caxton. In 1934 it was shown that the Winchester manuscript is a separate text from Caxton's, differing in many details. This full photographic reproduction is in black and white, but two plates are printed in red as well, to show the unusual scribal technique of using red ink for certain names and phrases. Uncommon in the first edition. Gaines A25.

        A collection of his first editions in superb condition.

      London & New York: various publishers, 1898–1976 - 22 works in 50 volumes, octavo format, various sizes. All in the original cloth (except The People's Rights, in original wrappers). With the dust jackets where issued (except The River War). Generally in exceptional condition. Photgraphic plates and maps throughout. An exceptional collection of all the main texts in the Churchill corpus, in superb condition throughout, including one of only two known copies of Lord Randolph Churchill (1906) in the dust jacket, and one of only three such copies of Liberalism and the Social Problem (1909, one of these being substantially damaged). Further rarities include the case-bound issue of India (1930), in the extremely uncommon dust jacket, a copy of his 1910 pamphlet The People's Rights, in the original wrappers, and genuinely fine copies of most titles, from his first published book, The Story of the Malakand Field Force (1898), to My Early Life (1930), his first book of sustained biography, in the dust jacket, together with superlative examples of his works from the Wilderness Years. There are also excellent jacketed sets of his great voluminous titles, notably The World Crisis (1923–31) and Marlborough (1933–8). In almost all instances the given copy is the best we have handled. These copies were originally collected by Mark Weber (d. 2016), who during more than 30 years trading as the Churchill Book Specialist kept back for his own private collection the best available copy of each Churchill title. The result is a once-in-a-generation collecting opportunity. An individual catalogue description for each book is available on request. a) The Story of the Malakand Field Force. London, New York & Bombay: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1898. First edition, home issue, sole printing, first state. Original cloth, a superlative copy: "Truly fine copies are extreme rarities, and even those with routine wear and tear are difficult to find" (Langworth). Cohen A1.1.a. b) The River War. London, New York and Bombay: Longmans, Green & Co., 1899. First edition, first impression, second state. 2 vols., original cloth, a remarkably tight and fresh copy: "the heavy pages put a lot of strain on the binding, and many copies are found with hinge or gutter breaks" (Langworth). From the library of Scotttish peer and soldier John Stewart-Murray, 7th Duke of Atholl (1840–1917), whose son served in the Sudan. Cohen A2.1.b. c) Savrola. New York: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1900. First edition in book form, first printing, of Churchill's only novel. Original cloth, an excellent copy. Cohen A3.1.a. d) Savrola. London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1900. First UK edition in book form (printed from the American plates), first impression, first state. Original cloth, a very attractive copy of a book increasingly hard to find in collectable condition. Cohen A3.2.a. e) London to Ladysmith via Pretoria. London: Longmans, Green and Co, 1900. First edition, first impression. Original cloth, small spot to front board, but an excellent copy. "A splendid book both aesthetically and from a literary standpoint, the Ladysmith is one of the most sought-after titles in the canon" (Langworth). Cohen A4.1.a. f) Ian Hamilton's March. London: Longmans, Green, and Co, 1900. First edition, first impression, first issue of the sequel to Ladysmith. Original cloth, an exceptionally bright copy, entirely unfaded. "A very good copy is a scarcity and a fine one is truly rare" (Langworth). Cohen A8.1.a. g) Lord Randolph Churchill. London: Macmillan and Co. Limited, 1906. First edition, sole impression, first-issue binding. 2 vols., original cloth, one of only two copies known in the original dust jackets.

        The Collected Essays of Sir Winston Churchill, complete in four volumes

      London: Library of Imperial History, 1976. First edition. Hardcover. This exceptional set of ChurchillÂ’s Collected Essays is among the best-preserved examples of the vellum bindings we have seen. This four-volume set is a compilation of most of Churchill's major forewords and periodical contributions, some of which can be otherwise found only in the original periodical publications. The essays are sorted by subject and each of the volumes has a theme - Churchill and War, Churchill and Politics, Churchill and People, and Churchill at Large. In addition to being bibliographically important, The Collected Essays are aesthetically appealing. The production quality is impressive. There were two publisher binding options for The Collected Essays - both sumptuous and one positively extravagant. The lesser of the two was bound in quarter blue morocco and is lovely, but does not match the other 34 volumes of The Collected Works. The more elaborate binding option was full natural calfskin vellum with individual green slipcases, matching the 34 volumes of the preceding Centenary Edition of Churchill's book-length works. The bindings feature Churchill's coat of arms stamped in gilt. The text is printed on special 500-year archival paper and decorated with marbled endpapers, all edges gilt, head and foot bands, and silk ribbon markers. Each volume is protected in a dark green leather slipcase with the Churchill coat of arms embossed in gilt on the front cover. Either binding of The Collected Essays is scarce, but this more elaborate binding is rarely seen alone, as it is essential to completing a uniform full set of The Collected Works. The vellum bindings were meant to tone and age naturally, but often yellow both considerably and unevenly. This is only the second time we have been able to offer a set this compellingly bright and clean. The bindings are pristine with unusually bright vellum showing no appreciable signs of toning or handling, perfectly square and tight with sharp corners and no visible wear. Shelf presentation is magnificent, the spines sparklingly bright and clean. Condition of the set appears flawless. The contents are likewise immaculate, crisp and apparently unread, with satin ribbon markers apparently still in the original position placed by the publisher. We find no previous ownership marks. The gilt page edges are vividly bright with no discernible flaws noted. The green leather slipcases of this edition are likewise exceptionally clean, with only a few trivial scuffs and bumps to extremities. An exceptional example of an important work, with both compelling contents and striking shelf presence. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A286, Woods/ICS A146(b), Langworth p.355.

On joint une enveloppe autographe adressée par Henry Miller à Béatrice Commengé et une lettre autographe signée d'Anaïs Nin à Béatrice Commengé. En 1976, Béatrice Commengé, alors jeune étudiante en lettres, entreprend la rédaction d'une thèse consacrée à Anaïs Nin et Henry Miller. Depuis son village périgourdin, elle écrit à l'une et à l'autre. Nin, très souffrante, regrette de ne pouvoir l'aider. Miller, par contre, se laisse d'abord séduire à l'idée d'échanger avec une habitante de Domme, village dont il avait autrefois célébré la beauté dans Le Colosse de Maroussi. Très rapidement, impressionné par la perspicacité et le style de l'étudiante, il engage avec elle une correspondance qu'ils entretiendront jusqu'à ce que, deux ans avant sa mort, la vue d'Henry Miller se dégrade définitivement et l'empêche de lire et d'écrire. À cette époque, Miller, âgé de quatre-vingt-cinq ans, vit presque reclus à Pacific Palisades en Californie, rejetant l'american way of life et ses illusions, redoutant les trop fréquentes sollicitations. Mais le vieil écrivain est très vite charmé par le regard que porte Commengé sur son œuvre : « You are a gem ! One of the very few ''fanas'' to understand me. Merci ! Merci mille fois ! », écrit-il dès la seconde lettre. Une véritable amitié épistolaire se noue alors entre le vieil écrivain et la jeune muse : « I think of you as some sort of terrestrial angel » ; « what a delight to get a letter from you » ; « Keep writing me, please ! » Dans des lettres passionnées rédigées dans tous les sens, où l'anglais se mèle au français, les mots sont soulignés, les parenthèses et les exclamations abondent et les post-scriptum sont ajoutés dans les marges, Miller se penche sur ses souvenirs et sur son œuvre. Refusant une correspondance purement universitaire, « To be honest with you, I don't think either A.N. or I, who are naturally very truthful persons, really succeeded with truth as it is conventionally thought of. We are both confirmed «fabulators». » Miller recommande à la jeune femme ses nouvelles lectures et ses vieux amis, « [Lawrence] Durrel is the friend to talk to about me, [.] he knows me inside out » ; [he] is wonderful when you get to know him. éblouissant même » ; « that great master of the french language - Joseph Delteil » ; « Delteil is almost a saint. But a lively one. » ; « Alf[red Perlès] is the clown, the buffoon, who made me laugh every day ». Puis il la félicite d'abandonner son projet didactique au profit d'un « imaginary book about me » et engage une correspondance bien plus intime. Il lui confie ainsi ses étonnements : « Did you read about the french prostitutes protesting and demonstrating in Paris against my receving [the legion of honor] ? They say I did not treat them well in my books. And I thougth I had ! ! ». Il partage ses gouts littéraires : « I prefer the Welsh. They are the last of the poets ». Il met également en garde la future traductrice d'Anais Nin, contre la dualité de son ancienne maîtresse: « She is or was a complete enigma, absolutely dual. [.] Actually, I suppose there is always this dichotomy between the person and the writer », lui confiant ses secrets : « she is slowly dyin (of cancer) she refuses to admit it. (This is entre nous !) » et révélant ses nouveaux amours : « I am in love with a very beautiful chinese actress [.]. I seem to go from one to another, never totally defeated, never wholly satisfied. But this is near ''eternal'' love as I've never been. » En effet, malgré son grand âge, l'auteur de Sexus n'a rien perdu de sa passion pour le beau sexe et celui de sa correspondante n'échappe pas à ce Don Juan : « On est curieux - êtes-vous belle etc., je crois que oui. En tout cas je vous pr [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
