        At Swim-Two-Birds

      New York: Pantheon, 1951. First American Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. 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."

        End of the Affair, The

      London: William Heinemann, 1951. First Impression. Hardcover. Fine-/Near Fine+. First Issue, without the divisional numeral (and thus chapter division) of Book 2, VIII. 8vo: [6],237,[1]pp. Publisher's grey cloth, spine lettered in gilt, biege end papers, grey and white price-clipped typographic dust jacket. About Fine (mild lightening to spine); about Fine jacket (several miniscule closed tears). A most attractive copy. Wobbe A27a. In the introduction to this novel in Introductions to Three Novels, Greene reminds the reader that The End of the Affair was one of his first attempts to use the first person. He also reports that Great Expectations and The Good Soldier were deeply influential in the novel's development. "From a technical standpoint, [The End of the Affair] is a masterful blend of diary entries, letters, and shifting viewpoints, yet from a religious standpoint, it is the most spiritually challenging record of obsessive jealousy and hate that Greene ever produced . . . The fourth of Greene's explicitly Catholic novels, [it] in fact concerns a love triangle. It is also a kind of detective story, in which the mysterious third party, of whom Bendrix is so jealous, proves to be spiritual. Greene dedicated the novel to 'C.' [Lady Catherine Walston], with whom he was then having an affair."

        Drawing for Gekkan KYO^TO Magazine

      1951. ONCHI Koshiro. Drawing for Gekkan KYOTO Magazine. An original drawing and magazine printer's proof page, tipped onto a single sheet, 27.4 x 19.2 cm., along with a xerox of the illustration and article as printed in the magazine in 1951. The article was entitled HAHA NO TERYORI [MOM'S HOME COOKING] and the illustration is of a homely meal of tofu, herbs and a chawanmushi, with Onchi's calligraphed caption. As is evident from the proof and the printed article, it was all quite faithfully reproduced. Charming and effecting evocation of a warmly remembered distant past, long before the war and the privations all around. A very nice and contextualized presentation.

[Together with] Typeset letter on Powell's letterhead paper in the envelope. Spine gently rolled, top edge lightly dust toned, a very good, bright copy in the jacket with faded spine, short closed tears to foot of front panel, foot of spine, and head of rear panel, nicks to extremities. First US edition, first printing. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Osbert and Karen, from Tony, with renewed love, December 1961". The recipients are believed to be Osbert and Karen Lancaster. Osbert Lancaster and Powell were friends from their time at Oxford; Lancaster designed a number of paperback covers for Powell's books, including the cover of Penguin's paperback edition of this work, published in 1962. This is Powell's first novel in his series Dance to the Music of Time. The letter, sent to Miss Audrey Watson, dated 17 May 1973, reads, "Dear Miss Watson, In reply to your letter, I am afraid I have had to make it a rule not to do as you request. I hope you will not think this ungracious. Yours sincerely, Anthony Powell". Powell has corrected his typed mistakes in two places.

        The Wind in the Willows

      London: Methuen & Co., 1951. The "One Hundredth Edition" of "Wind in the Willows" [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 361), printed on handmade paper. Large quarto (11 3/4 x 9 1/4 inches; 298 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. Internally fine and fresh. Publisher's full white calf, smooth spine lettered in gilt. Small repaired split at foot of spine, neat ink inscription dated 1952 on front free end-paper. A very good 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.

Limited to 516 copies. The definitive facsimile of one of Blake?s greatest works and the first of the magnificent series of facsimiles created by the Trianon Press of Blake?s illuminated books. The Preludium is by Joseph Wicksteed and the Bibliographical Statement by Geoffrey Keynes. Bentley 78. "Blake's etched copperplates, giving the text of his poem and the basis of the designs, were printed by him in a rich orange ink and were then illuminated by hand in water colours and gold. The etched base has now been reproduced by collotype in orange and the prints have then been coloured by hand by a stencilling process, so that the final result bears the closest possible resemblance to Blake's original plates. An average of forty-four applications of water colours was required for each full page illustration, of which there are four. Of the remainder, fifty-one have some text with designs filling half the page or more, and thirty-five have text with small marginal decorations.". (Introduction)

        Frank Lloyd Wright Business Card, Circa 1951

      A business card from Frank Lloyd Wright's San Francisco office, belonging to Aaron Green, circa 1951. On a visit in 1951 to Taliesin West, Frank Lloyd Wright's home and studio near Scottsdale, Arizona, Aaron Green mentioned that he was planning to relocate his architectural practice to San Francisco. To his surprise, Wright suggested a joint venture. Wright had good reason for wanting to establish a satellite office there: he had several houses and a store in various stages of planning or completion, and prospects were favorable for obtaining more work, including a bridge across San Francisco Bay. For Green, the association offered a way to formalize his relationship with Wright while continuing to develop his independent practice. During that time, Wright and Green worked together on the V.C. Morris Gift Shop (Wright's only commercial project) and Wright's last major project, the Marin County Civic Center, among others. Green, who had been an apprentice at Taliesin, was responsible for carrying the Marion County Civic Center project to completion after Wright's death in 1959. Included is a contemporary business card from Aaron Green Architects. A fascinating piece of ephemera linking Wright and one of his most important associates. 3.5 x 2 inches. Near Fine.
