         London Underground Map].

      Waterlow & Sons, [1939]., London, - Beck's tube map poster from 1939 Chromolithograph plan, backed on linen. A poster of Beck's iconic map of the London Underground System. The plan shows both the central line under construction from Liverpool Street to Ongar, and from North Acton to Denham; and the Northern Line from Finsbury Park to Alexandra Palace, High Barnet, and Bushey Heath. The extensions to the network were part of the 'New Works Programme' (from 1935 to 1940), a major investment programme by London Transport. The plan can be dated by the text below Highgate "(from Summer of 1940 only)". By June of 1939 the Northern line extension from Archway to East Finchley had been completed, although excluding Highgate station as shown on the plan. The extension to High Barnet, shown here as under construction, would not be open until 14th April 1940. The map was designed by the 29 year-old engineer Harry Beck. Abandoning the restrictions of a geographically correct layout, the map actually constitutes a diagram of the network, showing relationships rather than distances to scale. By using only verticals, horizontals and diagonals, and adopting a clear colour scheme, Beck created a design classic, both easy to use and aesthetically appealing. After the positive public response to the limited trial run issued in 1932, the design was formally adopted in 1933, becoming an essential part of London Transport's campaign to project itself as a modern, rational and efficient system. The design remains in use to this day, having become essential to the comprehensibility of complex transport networks all over the world.

         Gladiators; Darkness At Noon and Arrival and Departure.

      New York: The Macmillan Company, 1939-1943. First American editions of each work in Koestler's acclaimed trilogy, including his masterpiece, Darkness at Noon. Octavo, original cloth. Darkness at Noon is signed by Arthur Koestler on the front free endpaper. Each volume is very good in a very good dust jackets with some rubbing and wear. First printings are rare signed. Although there is no narrative connection between the books, Arthur Koestler declared his first three novels to be a thematic trilogy following the publication of the final installment, Arrival and Departure. Set in different eras, each novel explores the ethics and consequences of revolutionary politics and idealism, reflecting Koestler's growing disillusionment with the political environment of mid-20th century Europe. Published in 1939, Koestler's first novel, The Gladiators, used the portrayal of the slave uprising led by Thracian gladiator Spartacus in ancient Rome to examine the rise of communism in the Soviet Union. This book was followed by Koestler's masterpiece, Darkness at Noon, the tale of an Old Bolshevik who is imprisoned and tried for treason by the very government he helped to create. Despite being based on real events, the novel does not directly refer to the Soviet government, Stalin, or Nazi Germany but uses generic descriptors such as "the Party", "Number One", and "the Dictatorship" respectively. The final book in the trilogy, Arrival and Departure, reflects Koestler's own plight as a Hungarian refugee in the midst of the Second World War. Koestler's contemporary, George Orwell, commended the book "for what must be one of the most shocking descriptions of Nazi terrorism that have ever been written."

The remaining pictures, some of which are identified on the reverse, show Damshroder and his family at their farm or neighboring farms, images of championship cows, what appear to be business trips to Florida and Mexico, and vacations to Ft.

      New York, : The Limited Editions Club, . Excellent condition limited edition with only very minor signs of external wear.. New York, The Limited Editions Club, 1939. 19 cm x 28 cm. LVI, 260 pages. Original Hardcover with illustrated dustjacket in protective slip-case. Excellent condition limited edition with only very minor signs of external wear. George Bernard Shaw (26 July 1856 – 2 November 1950), known at his insistence simply as Bernard Shaw, was an Irish playwright, critic and polemicist whose influence on Western theatre, culture and politics extended from the 1880s to his death and beyond. He wrote more than sixty plays, including major works such as Man and Superman (1902), Pygmalion (1912) and Saint Joan (1923). With a range incorporating both contemporary satire and historical allegory, Shaw became the leading dramatist of his generation, and in 1925 was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. Back to Methuselah (A Metabiological Pentateuch) by George Bernard Shaw consists of a preface (An Infidel Half Century) and a series of five plays: In the Beginning: B.C. 4004 (In the Garden of Eden), The Gospel of the Brothers Barnabas: Present Day, The Thing Happens: A.D. 2170, Tragedy of an Elderly Gentleman: A.D. 3000, and As Far as Thought Can Reach: A.D. 31,920. All were written during 1918–20, published simultaneously by Constable (London) and Brentano's (New York) in 1921, and first performed in the United States in 1922 by the New York Theatre Guild at the old Garrick Theatre, New York.

        Ozoplaning With the Wizard Oz

      Chicago: Reilly & Lee, 1939. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine/very good +. Neill, John R.. First printing, with first printing dust jacket, octavo size, 272 pp. The thirty-third and last of the "canonical" books in the fabulously popular "Oz" series, the nineteenth written by Ruth Plumly Thompson. It was decided to include the phrase "The Wizard of Oz" in the title to coincide with the release the same year of the MGM film starring Judy Garland. In fact, it seems the book was written with the film in mind, as the story focuses on the characters who appeared in the first book. This a lovely copy, a wonderful way to complete a set for any Oz collector.___***DESCRIPTION: Bound in full tan cloth, black lettering and designs to the backstrip, full-colour pastedown on the front board, black and white illustrated endpapers, 16-page gatherings, replete with black and white illustrations (issued without colour plates); octavo size (9.25" by 7"), 272 pages. Dust jacket shows the original $1.50 price, the front and back panels mirror the book's pastedown, the back flap lists the Oz titles through this title, number 32.___***CONDITION: Volume could almost be called fine; the binding is clean, the black on the spine deep and unrubbed, the front pastedown has bright colours and is perfect (with no rubbing or other defects), the corners are straight, the text block is strong and square with solid hinges, the interior is clean and bright, and the volume is entirely free of prior owner markings (including the "Belongs to" page, which is blank); the only condition issues we see is a hint of wear to the bottom edge, the book is slightly cocked, and there is a small, light stain to the fore-edge of the text block. The unclipped dust jacket is very good plus to near fine, with some minor wear at the usual spots (head and tail of the spine, and where the panels meet the flaps), the worst being a small, triangular chip where the front panel meets the head of the spine; also some sunning to the spine. Overall a lovely copy.___***CITATIONS: Bienvenue p. 121, Hanff & Greene no. 33.___***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard shipping charge does not always cover costs; please inquire for details.___***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind book we sell.
