Congratulations to those in the trade who helped bring Abebooks (owned by AMAZON) into line over their treatment of book sellers in a number of countries - I was happy to be part of the boycott


I am  interested in finding a book called France in War Time 1914-1915 by Maud Sutton Pickhard - please get in touch.

 

 
Good-Bye To All That. An Autobiography.

Good-Bye To All That. An Autobiography.

GRAVES, Robert

First edition; first state, 8vo; original salmon cloth boards. This is the first state with lines on pages 289-290 and 341-343 present. The Sassoon poem was suppressed at his insistence and was removed from further editions. Estimates vary as to the number of copies of the first state to survive after the publishers tried to recall them. The other passage removed was the knockings in the night. The cream coloured dust jacket, printed in black was designed by Len Lye and incorporates a photograph of Graves by Alfred Cracknell. The same photograph serves as the frontispiece. The book is near fine, spine ends bumped and boards a little dusty. The dust jacket is also near fine with some wear to top of spine and one short closed tear to both front and rear panels. A lovely copy increasingly difficult to find in this condition.


The Naked Civil Servant

The Naked Civil Servant

CRISP, Quentin

First edition, first printing; 8vo; original cloth and dust jacket. Inscribed on the front free end paper to David [Enders] from Quentin Crisp." David Enders was an actor and restaurateur in the 1960s. He was a devoted Chelsean and roamed the King's Road every morning removing calling cards from the telephone boxes. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket, with hardly a trace of darkening to the spine. Preserved in a specially made slipcase.
