B A U M A N R A R E B O O K S a p r i l 2 0 2 4 spring gifts 1 WITH 24 SUPERB HAND-COLORED FOLIO ACKERMANN AQUATINTS OF SCENES ALONG THE RHINE, 1820 1. (ACKERMANN, Rudolph) GERNING, Baron Johann Isaac von. A Picturesque Tour Along the Rhine, from Mentz to Cologne. London, 1820. Folio (11-1/2 by 13-1/2 inches), period-style full green straight-grain morocco, giltdecorated spine and boards. $11,000 First edition, first issue, of one of Ackermann’s wonderful Picturesque Tours, beautifully illustrated with 24 handcolored folio aquatints and large folding map. A lovely copy, beautifully bound to style. In the history of book production “there is no more attractive figure than that of Rudolph Ackermann, through whose extraordinary enterprise and spirit of adventure, aquatint was successfully applied to the illustration of books” (Prideaux, 120-23). One of Ackermann’s most lucrative projects was his remarkable Picturesque Tours, a series of seven books produced between 1820-28. This is his Tour Along the Rhine, with beautifully hand-colored aquatints by Daniel Havell and Thomas Sutherland after paintings by Christian Georg Schutz, depicting views of Mentz, the Castle of Furstenberg, the Church of Johannes, Pfalz Castle and the town of Kaub, the salmon fishery at Lurley, Coblentz, Bornhofen, Cologne and other sites along the river. The plates were pulled and hand-colored in the Ackermann studio, whose reputation for producing splendid illustrated publications and disseminating fine aquatint prints spanned over two centuries. The folding map shows the course of the Rhine from Mentz to Cologne. With accompanying text by Baron von Gerning describing the history and culture of the area (first published in German in 1819, without illustrations). First issue, without plate numbers in the top right corners. Tooley notes that plates 2 and 3 have variants dated either September or October; Abbey argues persuasively that to call either state an issue “must remain doubtful,” particularly given that large-paper copies have also been seen with the two plates dated October. At any rate, the quality of plates in either state are the same high standard; Abbey notes that “there are definitely some later issues of the book, and these can be recognized by having plate numbers at the top right-hand corner. The impressions in these plates are poor and the coloring less good” (Abbey 217). This copy has plates 2 and 3 dated October, but most importantly none of the plates bear numbers in the upper right. Text watermarked 1817 and 1818; plates watermarked 1818 and 1819. Abbey, Travel 217. Prideaux, 337. Tooley 234. Title page neatly rehinged, plates fine and fresh, hand-coloring vivid. An excellent, attractive copy of this beautifully illustrated work.

ARNOLD, John P. Origin and History of Beer and Brewing. From Prehistoric Times to the Beginning of Brewing Science and Technology. Chicago, 1911. Tall quarto, original green cloth. $3200 First edition of Arnold’s widely praised and comprehensive history of beer, spanning the prehistoric era through the late 18th century, inscribed by the author on the front flyleaf: “With compliments to the Misses ___, by the author John P. Arnold.” With rare publisher’s 16-page prospectus laid in. Written for the 25th Anniversary of Chicago’s famous Wahl-Henius Institute, this is widely regarded as the first comprehensive book on beer-making. Its author, John P. Arnold, was a writer and editor for Der Braumeister and Siebel Technical Review, two Chicago brewing journals. He skillfully orients the history of beer within the larger history of mankind, discussing beer as it relates to religious ceremonies, dining, agriculture, invention and more. On publication Arnold’s Origin and History was praised as “monumental… ought to be in the hands of everybody connected with the brewing industry” (American Brewers’ Review XXV: 596-7). With numerous in-text and fullpage illustrations. As issued without dust jacket. With publisher’s rare 16-page prospectus, including press reviews and a specimen page from the text. LOC Catalog VIII:5604. Rare prospectus with mild edge-toning, faint vertical crease. Book with light spotting to fore-edge, text clean; rear inner paper hinge starting, binding sound, cloth fine.

Includes Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Northanger Abbey, Persuasion, Mansfield Park, and Emma. This text of this edition is based on the collation of the early editions by R.W. Chapman; the Clarendon editions were the first to use “contemporary illustrations”: “An undated memorandum in the Press’s files states ‘The publishers are bitterly opposed to any imaginative illustrations, and would cheerfully have no illustrations at all. But they would be in favour of a few objective illustrations” (Gilson E150). First issued in 1923 in a limited large-paper edition; this second and third edition set includes addenda and additional notes. Pride and Prejudice is from the 1932 third impression. Gilson E150. Fine condition.

Almanach des Modes Présentes, Passées & Futures. Paris, 1924. Slim quarto, original illustrated paper wrappers, original glassine. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $3500 First edition of this lovely almanac, one of only 600 copies, with vignette title page and 12 plates brightly handcolored in pochoir watercolor by Barbier, in original illustrated wrappers and glassine. This lovely fashion almanac was produced by George Barbier from 1922 through 1926 as a more lavish version of his Guirlande des Mois series of 1917-1921. Barbier, an Art Deco legend, began his career as a costume and set designer for the Ballet Russes and later created décors and costumes for music-halls, movies and the Folies Bergère. Renowned for his fashion illustrations for the leading magazines of the time, including the Gazette du Bon Ton and Vogue, his artistic style is recognized by a characteristically elegant, stylized line with some classical Greek influence. In Falbalas & Fanfreluches, Barbier depicted fashions of the past, present, and future, from the Gallo-Roman Era through the 20th century, usually with pairs of lovers. In addition to the 12 beautiful plates vividly hand-colored in pochoir within the volume, Barbier also designed the color cover illustration, the color vignette title page, and one in-text headpiece. Text in French. Three small chips to glassine. A fine copy. Scarce.

The design is traditional, but the quality of material and workmanship is so high, and the conventions are so delicately modified and consistently applied that the result is extremely impressive” (Cambridge History of the Bible, 464).

B A U M A N R A R E B O O K S spring gifts a p r i l 2 0 2 4 6 “THE TRUE BIRTH OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT”: RARE PANORAMIC PHOTOGRAPH OF WWII BLACK SOLDIERS OF THE 318TH COMBAT ENGINEERS 6. (BLACK HISTORY). Photograph, Panoramic. Fort Bragg, North Carolina, circa 1943. Gelatin silver print (measures 8 by 33-1/2 inches); matted and framed, entire piece measures 34-1/2 by 13 inches. $3400 Exceptional panoramic photograph of WWII Black soldiers of the 318th Combat Engineers, who served in the segregated 93rd Infantry Division that fought in the Pacific, returning home at war’s end to a surge in racist riots and lynchings. WWII plunged the U.S. into a global conflict as well as a challenge to its systematic “mechanism of race… one contributing factor was the significant participation of Blacks” in the war. “Nearly 1,200,000 Blacks were inducted or enlisted in the armed forces,” only to face segregation in their service as well as in “combat housing, hospitals and on leave” (Robinson, Black Movements, 129). Many Black leaders “compared the Nazi racial policies of Hitler to racism in the American South” and young Black men voiced deep reservations about “the Jim Crow practices of the War Department and the branches of the armed forces.” The men in this panoramic photographic portrait were at the heart of that moment in history. They are soldiers in Company A of the 318th Engineer Battalion, which was in the 25th Combat Team of the 93rd Infantry Division—the segregated African American unit of the U.S. Army in WWII. These Black servicemen trained at Fort Huachuca, Arizona where, “throughout much of fall and winter months of 1942 and 1943, members of the division’s 318th Combat Engineering Battalion participated in demolition, road and bridge construction, field fortification, and tactical assault training exercises” (Jefferson, Fighting for Hope, 34-81). As pictured here, Black soldiers served under white southern officers “whose positions stemmed partly from the War Department’s belief that southern white officers possessed far better leadership qualifications to command Black troops than did northern white and Black cadres.” Ordered to the Pacific in early 1944, the 318th Combat Engineers in the 93rd Infantry continued to register their discontent as “army officials struggled to promote the image of a racially harmonious military while maintaining the army’s discriminatory practices.” The 93rd Infantry “disembarked at several points in the South Pacific before being assigned mainly to the Russells (Banika), Vella Lavella, Guadalcanal, and New Georgia” (Jefferson, 84-90, 158). Returning home after their service, Black veterans faced murderous race riots and lynchings. In the first six weeks of 1946 alone, Birmingham’s police force under Bull Connor “killed five Black military veterans” (Robinson, 129-34). They were attacked and many killed “when they sought to exercise the very freedoms for which they had fought. ‘Every effort was made to make this absolutely clear… the war has changed nothing in regard to race relations,’ says Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Leon Litwack. ‘What [hostile white communities] failed to note: Black Americans are no longer willing to take it’… Medgar Evers, whose murder would later galvanize the Civil Rights movement, began his activism in 1946, when he and his brother Charles returned from military service and organized a voterregistration drive in Mississippi.” Black veterans made, “in Litwack’s words, ‘the true birth of the Civil Rights Movement’” (Smithsonian). Photographic studio imprint on the verso: “LaPerla Studio.” This photograph was most likely taken at Fort Bragg in 1943. The 39th Combat Engineers is discussed and pictured in a book titled, Field Artillery Replacement Training Center, Fort Bragg Second Anniversary. In fine condition.

In her Hugo and Nebula award-winning works, Butler used “the genre as a powerful means of speaking to a range of issues including race, gender and the environment” (Los Angeles Times).

Octavo, original black cloth, dust jacket. $2900 First edition of this comprehensive and engaging first-hand account of the genesis of America’s manned space program, inscribed “To J— John Glenn,” richly illustrated with photographs, in original dust jacket. “The first seven American astronauts were an admirable group of individuals chosen to sit at the apex of a pyramid of human effort… In volunteering to entrust their lives to Mercury’s spirit and Atlas’ strength to blaze a trail for man into the empyrean, they chose to lead by following the opportunity that chance, circumstance, technology and history had prepared for them” (Swenson, Grimwood & Alexander, 164-65). This volume offers a cohesive chronicle of the beginnings of American manned space exploration from the perspectives of the those who pioneered it, with each member of Project Mercury contributing at least three essay-length sections. Containing numerous black-and-white photographic illustrations, color photographic endpapers and title page. This copy is inscribed by Mercury astronaut John Glenn, the third American in space and the first to orbit the earth. He later served as a U.S. Senator from Ohio from 1974 to 1999. A fine copy.

Churchill’s monumental history of the first World War was first published in six volumes as The World Crisis, 1923-31; these 26 parts were issued fortnightly by Newnes from September 1933 to October 1934, “in a form which will make them accessible to a very wide public.” “Not only the best account of the most tremendous convulsion the world has ever seen, but one of the most brilliant treatises on war that has ever been written” (Spectator).

The Second World War: The Gathering Storm; Their Finest Hour; The Grand Alliance; The Hinge of Fate; Closing the Ring; Triumph and Tragedy. London, 1948-54. Six volumes. Octavo, modern three-quarter navy morocco gilt. $3500 First English editions of Churchill’s WWII masterpiece, part history and part memoir, written after he lost reelection as Prime Minister, handsomely bound. The six volumes of Churchill’s masterpiece were published separately between 1948 and 1954. With the Second World War, Churchill “pulled himself back from humiliating defeat in 1945, using all his skills as a writer and politician to make his fortune, secure his reputation, and win a second term in Downing Street” (Reynolds, xxiii). “Winston himself affirmed that ‘this is not history: this is my case” (Holmes, 285). Churchill was re-elected to the post of Prime Minister in 1951. “The Second World War is a great work of literature, combining narrative, historical imagination and moral precept in a form that bears comparison with that of the original master chronicler, Thucydides. It was wholly appropriate that in 1953 Churchill was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature” (Keegan, 175). Although preceded by the American editions, the English editions are generally preferred for their profusion of diagrams, maps and facsimile documents. Cohen A240.4. Woods A123b. Langworth, 254. A fine set, handsomely bound.

B A U M A N R A R E B O O K S spring gifts a p r i l 2 0 2 4 12 “EVERY ACT, WHETHER OF WAR OR ADMINISTRATION, IS INTENDED TO BE FINAL”: FIRST EDITION OF CHURCHILL’S IMPORTANT SECOND BOOK, THE RIVER WAR 12. CHURCHILL, Winston. The River War, An Historical Account of the Reconquest of the Soudan. London, 1899. Two volumes. Thick octavo, original gilt-stamped navy cloth. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $11,500 First edition, first printing, of Churchill’s rare second book, one of only 2000 copies printed, in original cloth. Churchill served in the 21st Lancers during Lord Kitchener’s campaign on the Upper Nile in the late 1890s and was a participant there in the last great cavalry charge of the British Army. “Hopping on a ferry, and not bothering to trouble his commanding officer in distant South India for leave, Winston turned up in the Abbasya barracks in Cairo on August 2, 1898, and joined the 21st’s A Squadron. He was fully outfitted, had bought a horse, and was, most important of all, equipped with a commission from the Morning Post to send dispatches at £15 a time” (Keegan, 46). Though only in his early 20s and a mere subaltern, Churchill had already developed an independence of thought that would serve him well in his later political career: “Far from accepting uncritically the superiority of British civilization, Churchill shows his appreciation for the longing for liberty among the indigenous inhabitants of the Sudan; but he finds their native regime defective in its inadequate legal and customary protection for the liberty of subjects. On the other hand, he criticizes the British army, and in particular its commander Lord Kitchener, for departing in its campaign from the kind of civilized respect for the liberty and humanity of adversaries that alone could justify British civilization and imperial rule over the Sudan” (Langworth, 27). This account includes 34 maps, 20 of which are printed in color and folding, and 58 illustrations, including tissue-guarded frontispieces, photogravure portraits, and numerous in-text illustrations. The maps and plans include various sections of the Nile, the Dervish Empire, etc. First printing, second state, with the final quotation mark after the words LONDON GAZETTE on page 459 of Volume II. Without original dust jackets, so rare as to be unobtainable. Cohen A2.1.b. Woods A2(a). Langworth, 2730. Manuscript letter loosely inserted from publisher Adam Black (not the publisher of the present work) to General Lord Mark Kerr, dated 28 February 1894; ownership signature of Kerr in both volumes. Lord Kerr (1817-1900) was a British Army officer who served in the Crimean War and in India. Occasional faint foxing to text, a few rubs to clean cloth, gilt bright. A near-fine copy with a nice British military provenance.

CONAN DOYLE, Sir Arthur. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. WITH: The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes. London, 1892, 1894. Two volumes. Octavo, modern full blue crushed morocco gilt; custom slipcase. $12,000 First editions in book form of these classic stories starring literature’s most famous detective, illustrated by Sidney Paget, handsomely bound in full morocco-gilt by Bayntun-Rivière. Sherlock Holmes first appeared in the novel A Study in Scarlet (1887), but his adventures in the Strand Magazine would bring both him and his creator, Arthur Conan Doyle, lasting fame. “The initial 12 tales were collected between covers as The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, published in England and America in 1892; and 11 of the second 12… as The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, published in 1894. If any reader be prepared to name two other books that have given more innocent but solid pleasure, let him speak now—or hold his peace!” (Haycraft, 50). These volumes contain such famous and memorable tales as “A Scandal in Bohemia” and “The Adventure of the Speckled Band.” Of special note is the last case in the Memoirs, “The Final Problem,” in which Holmes apparently meets his death in a struggle with “the Napoleon of crime,” Professor Moriarty. “At one point, tiring of the detective, Doyle attempted to exterminate him… but the clamor of his admirers forced him to resurrect Holmes for several further volumes, and his popularity has waned little since” (Benet, 273). With Sidney Paget’s original, iconic illustrations: “Paget’s spirited illustrations… greatly assisted to popularize those stories” (DNB). Original cloth covers and spine bound in at rear of each volume, including first-state cover of Adventures, with blank street sign on front cover illustration. Green & Gibson A10a, A14a. DeWaal 520, 596. Fine condition.

Folio, original pictorial cloth, dust jacket. $800 First edition in English of this extravagant, lavishly illustrated book of wines and famous vineyards created by Dalí in honor of his wife Gala. “When six years old I wanted to be a cook.” This “refreshing blend of art, fun, and information” combines Dalí’s art with the world’s greatest wines. “He has taken late 19th-century French academic works and 15th-century miniatures depicting the wine-making process and altered them, giving them his own inimitable stamp. The results are unexpected, outrageous and amusing… Several paintings and drawings he created especially for this book.” With color plates and in-text photographs and illustrations on nearly every one of the 296 pages.

Tall, thick octavo, original green cloth; custom slipcase. $3200 First edition of this golf classic, with 64 fine plates (48 in color) after original watercolors by Harry Rountree depicting renowned Scottish, English and Irish courses. Bernard Darwin, grandson of Charles Darwin and for almost 50 years the golf correspondent for The Times, is one of the most highly regarded golf writers of all times. “Thanks to Bernard, golf has acquired the sturdiest literature of any game. The best is Darwin’s… because he showed the writers who came after him how golf should be written” (H.W. Wind). “The illustrations, from original water colors, help to make this one of the fine books in the golf library, setting a high standard of excellence that Mr. Darwin would never fail to meet in his later books” (Murdoch 181). Without rarely found dust jacket. Donovan & Murdoch 14410. A few pages roughly opened, mild marginal foxing, spine gently toned, gilt still bright. Near-fine in clean original cloth.

ELIOT, T.S. The Four Quartets. London, 1960. Tall quarto, original cream and marbled paper boards, slipcase. $6200 Signed limited edition of this highspot of 20th-century poetry, number 102 of 290 copies signed by Eliot, beautifully printed at the Officina Bodoni in Verona. The Officina Bodini was founded in 1922 by Hans Mardersteig and named for Giambattista Bodoni, the great eighteenth-century Parma printer. In 1923 the Italian government granted the press the sole right to use the original Bodoni matrices housed in the Biblioteca Palatina. “Mardersteig’s approach was closer to that of the early scholar printers like Aldus Manutius or Robert Estienne than to the dilettantes of the Arts and Crafts Movement; the result has been that Officina Bodoni books have a value far above their success as examples of fine printing: they are… designed to be read.” (Cave, 177). First published in four separate parts during World War II, The Four Quartets “were the first of Eliot’s poems to reach a wide public (they were seen as a unifying force in the war years), and they succeeded in communicating in modern idiom the fundamentals of Christian faith and experience” (Drabble, 364).

Octavo, original black paper boards, dust jacket. $1500 First edition of Fleming’s final Bond novel, published the year after the author’s death, in which 007 travels to Fleming’s beloved Jamaica to neutralize the assassin of the book’s title. Because Fleming wrote this Bond adventure while ill—the author “was only able to work on it for one and a half hours a day”—the publisher hired novelist Kingsley Amis to complete and revise it (Black, 75). Made into the 1975 film of the same title starring Roger Moore as Bond, with an all-star cast including Christopher Lee, Britt Ekland, Maud Adams and Hervé Villachaize. Gilbert’s first impression, first issue, second state binding, without gilt-embossed gun on front cover, as usual; the first-issue binding is extremely rare. With green patterned endpapers. Gilbert A13a(1.3). Bondi & Pickard, 50. Faint spotting to text block edges; dust jacket with minuscule rubs and toning to extremities, near-fine.

Octavo, original silver-stamped brown paper boards, dust jacket; custom clamshell box. $3000 First edition of Fleming’s tenth Bond thriller—the author’s unusual examination of his super-spy “from the other end of the gun barrel.” “A significant departure from usual,” The Spy Who Loved Me, in which 007 appears only toward the end of the book, proved to be “the easiest thing [Fleming] had ever done” (Lycett, 381). As he had while composing From Russia, With Love (1957) and Thunderball (1961), the author again toyed with the idea of killing off his phenomenally popular super spy. Although the title page lists the book as being written by Ian Fleming with Vivienne Michel, the “coauthorship credit is a hoax: Vivienne Michel was the name of the wife of one of Fleming’s golfing companions in Jamaica” (Biondi & Pickard, 47). Fleming “had become alarmed that his earlier thrillers, designed for an adult audience, were increasingly read in schools… where young people made a hero out of James Bond… He did not regard Bond as a heroic figure ‘but only as an efficient professional in his job.’ Therefore he had sought to write a ‘cautionary tale’ to put the record straight, particularly for his younger readers. Unable to do this in his usual narrative style, he had invented a heroine ‘through whom I could examine Bond from the other end of the gun barrel, so to speak’” (Lycett, 401-02). Without quad mark between “E” and “M” of “Fleming” on title page (no priority established). Made into the 1977 film of the same title, starring Roger Moore and Barbara Bach. Gilbert A10a (1.1). A lovely copy in about-fine condition.

Octavo, original brown paper boards, dust jacket. $750 First edition of the James Bond short stories “Octopussy” and “The Living Daylights.” Consists of two stories—including the title piece, “a powerful work about guilt and punishment” (Black, 78)—planned by Fleming for a never-completed collection and published posthumously. “The Living Daylights” first appeared in England in the Sunday Times in February 1962 and was retitled “Berlin Escape” for the June 1962 issue of the American magazine Argosy. “This is the first Bond to list Thunderball credited as having been written from a screen treatment by Kevin McClory, Jack Whittingham and Ian Fleming, in accordance with the court settlement of the lawsuit against Fleming by Kevin McClory” (Biondi & Pickard, 51). “Octopussy” was made into the 1983 movie starring Roger Moore as Bond and Maud Adams as Octopussy; “The Living Daylights” was made in the 1987 movie with Timothy Dalton in his first outing as Bond. Book first impression; dust jacket Gilbert’s first issue, with original printed price (later covered by a sticker). Gilbert A14a(1.1). Owner stamps, one on half title and verso of dust jacket.

Octavo, original brown paper boards, dust jacket. $2800 First edition of Fleming’s ninth Bond novel, featuring the first appearance of the superspy’s memorable nemesis, the villainous mastermind behind SPECTRE, Ernst Blofeld, who steals two nuclear warheads and threatens the world. “Thunderball represented a new departure [for the Bond series], with the introduction of SPECTRE and of Ernst Blofeld, a commanding villain who was to reappear. This gave a measure of continuity to the later Bond novels… Thunderball worked well as an adventure story… the theme of the theft of atom bombs seemed pertinent and modern” (Black, 49, 55). As he had in From Russia, With Love (1957) and The Spy Who Loved Me (1962), Fleming considered permanently doing away with his super-spy character: “I shall definitely kill off Bond with my next book—better a poor bang than a rich whimper!” (Lycett, 364). Bond, of course, survives this adventure which, due to credit and rights controversy, was adapted twice to the screen: under the present title in 1965 and as Never Say Never Again in 1983—both times starring Sean Connery; in the 1965 film Claudine Auger played Domino, while Kim Basinger played that role in 1983. This copy is Gilbert’s first impression, first issue, binding A. Gilbert A9a (1.1). Biondi & Pickard, 46-47. Book clean and about-fine, dust jacket with just a touch of rubbing to corners, bright and near-fine. A lovely copy.

Sweet Seasons. Recollections of the 1955-64 New York Yankees. Dallas, Texas, 1990. Octavo, original gray cloth, dust jacket. $6500 First edition of this history of the Yankees from 1955-64—an incredible span of ten seasons during which they played in the World Series nine times, winning the championship four times (1956, 1958, 1961, 1962)—with 16 pages of photographic images, signed by 53 players from those great Yankee teams including Mickey Mantle, Don Larsen, Bill “Moose” Skowron, Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford, Enos Slaughter, Bobby Shantz, Tommy Byrne, Hank Bauer, Charlie Silvera, Andy Carey, Frank Crosetti, manager Ralph Houk, and many others. This fascinating history of the Yankees follows their remarkable ten seasons between 1955 and 1964, in the form of a player-by-player examination of the contributions of 32 of the most significant players on the teams from those years, signed by (at least) 22 of the players who are profiled (a handful of signatures not entirely legible). In 1956, Mickey Mantle won the MVP award for a season in which he led the AL and MLB in batting average (.353), home runs (52), and RBIs (130), becoming the second Yankee (after Gehrig in 1934) to win a Triple Crown. That year the Yankees won the franchise’s seventh AL championship under Stengel and advanced to a World Series rematch with the Dodgers. In Game 5, with the Series even at 2-2, Yankees pitcher Don Larsen threw a perfect game. In seven games, the Yankees won the Series. This copy is signed by both Mantle and Larsen. An about-fine copy, scarce and desirable with this collection of signatures.

A Theory of the Consumption Function. Princeton, 1957. Octavo, original blue cloth, dust jacket. $3800 First edition of Friedman’s groundbreaking econometrics work, believed by many to be his finest. This acclaimed work of economic theory “reinterpreted that Keynesian concept of the consumption function by relating it to lifetime instead of current income. For its ingenious manipulation of data and its reconciliation of apparently conflicting evidence, this book must rank as one of the masterpiece of modern econometrics” (Blaug, 63). Friedman “is regarded [as] a giant within the economics profession, and is one of the two or three most referenced and revered economics figures in the 20th century” (Pressman, 161). Book fine; scant edge-wear mainly to toned spine of near-fine dust jacket.

(HOLY LAND) FULLER, Thomas. A Pisgah-Sight of Palestine and the Confines thereof, with the History of the Old and New Testament acted thereon. London, 1650. Folio (9 by 13-1/2 inches), contemporary full brown calf rebacked. $12,500 First edition of this classic work, with engraved title page, engraved armorial plate, large detailed folding map of Palestine on two sheets, 20 double-page engraved maps—including one of Jerusalem—and seven double-page engraved plates. Fuller’s work is noted for its splendid maps of the Holy Land, elaborately detailed with vignettes, emblems and scenes. “This curious and singular work is not a mere geographical work, but contains many things relating to Jewish antiquities, and to the manners and customs of the people” (Lowndes, 848). “Pisgah-Sight is one of the great books on the topography of the Holy Land” (Maps of the Holy Land, 130). Pisgah refers to Mount Pisgah, from which Moses saw the Promised Land for the first time. Based on printed sources rather than actual travel, Fuller’s great work reflects the European interest at the time in the topography of the Holy Land, as well as the Ark of the Covenant, the Tabernacle, and the Temple, all presumably of divine origin. Fuller “was Milton’s exact contemporary and a student at Cambridge during Milton’s years there…The Miltonist may be led to the Pisgah-Sight in particular by annotations to Paradise Lost, which point to Fuller’s book as a contemporary authority for biblical topography, and especially for the appearances, habits and haunts of those Canaanite idols who seduced the Israelites from their allegiance to the true God” (Sandler, Thomas Fuller’s Pisgah-Sight of Palestine as a Comment on the Politics of Its Time, 317). To finance its publication Fuller secured sponsors—including prominent poets, peers and politicians—for each section of his work, then acknowledged each patron by name in a decorative cartouche on the map or plate for the corresponding section. Containing both engraved allegorical title page and bordered title page with woodcut-engraved crown; ornamental initials head- and tailpieces; index and errata. Collation compete in conformation with ESTC R18096. Armorial plate lightly hand-colored. Wing F2455. ESTC R18096. Gibson SVIII:1. Cox I:208.

Personal Memoirs of U.S. Grant. New York, 1885-86. Two volumes. Octavo, original deluxe three-quarter brown morocco gilt. $3000 First edition of “one of the most valuable writings by a military commander in history,” illustrated with numerous steel engravings, facsimiles, and 43 maps, a handsome copy in publisher’s deluxe binding. After an ineffectual term as president, ruined by bankruptcy and dying of throat cancer, Grant agreed to publish his memoirs to provide a measure of economic security for his family. Mark Twain agreed to serve as the publisher. Struggling to dictate his notes to a stenographer, Grant finished his memoirs shortly before his death in the summer of 1885. “It seemed to Twain, sitting quietly near him in his bedroom at Sixtieth Street, that Grant had fully regained the stature of a hero” (Kaplan, 273). “No Union list of personal narratives could possibly begin without the story of the victorious general. A truly remarkable work” (New York Times). “Grant’s memoirs comprise one of the most valuable writings by a military commander in history” (Eicher 492). Dornbusch II:1986. Mullins & Reed 35. A lovely copy in fine condition.

Ten volumes altogether. Octavo, original green cloth. $15,000 Complete Shoulder Strap set of seven Civil War histories printed by Twain’s publishing house in its short-lived but impressive decade of operation, featuring Grant’s Memoirs (1885-6), McClellan’s Own Story (1887), Crawford’s Genesis of the Civil War (1887), Custer’s Tenting on the Plains (1889), Hancock’s Reminiscences (1887), Sheridan’s Personal Memoirs (1888) and Sherman’s Memoirs (1890), each volume with the trademark gilt-decorated “shoulder strap” on the spine. This exceptional ten-volume “Shoulder Strap” series is named for each work’s gilt-decorated spine band that evokes the stars on an officer’s “shoulder strap.” Featuring the finest of contemporary Civil War histories, this series pays tribute to Mark Twain’s brief but impressive venture into publishing. In 1884 Twain joined with Charles Webster, who was married to Twain’s niece, in an effort, at first, to publish “his own books, and he began successfully with Huckleberry Finn in 1885. Almost fortuitously he got the contract to publish U.S. Grant’s Memoirs [1885-86]—a huge success… Other Civil War generals preparing their memoirs naturally hoped to appear with their great commander. McClellan’s Own Story [1887] was arranged for without difficulty. A Genesis of the Civil War [1887] by General Samuel Crawford was offered and accepted. General Sheridan’s Memoirs (1888)” soon followed (Paine, 831). This series also includes the posthumous Reminiscences of Union General Hancock (1887) written by his wife, Tenting on the Plains (1889) about General Custer, and concludes in 1890 with a revised edition of General Sherman’s Memoirs. By then, however, any profits had been exhausted, and Twain’s publishing house filed for bankruptcy in 1894. Most volumes first editions, with the “shoulder strap” editions of Tenting on the Plains (first published 1887) and Sherman’s Memoirs (enlarged third edition, with revisions by Sherman, of the 1875 first edition). With frontispiece portraits, illustrated with numerous steel engravings and maps (many folding). Dornbusch II:1986; III:2428; II:2103. Eicher 539. Mullins & Reed 35. Nevins II:59; I:124. Coulter 35. Rader 1009. Eberstadt 105:101, 122:86. See Dornbusch II:2400. Owner ink signature to front pastedown of each volume. Interiors clean and fine; only occasional light rubs to extremities, cloth fresh, gilt bright. Overall a beautiful set, very nearly fine, especially rare complete with the Hancock edition.

B A U M A N R A R E B O O K S a p r i l 2 0 2 4 spring gifts 27 MAGNIFICENT SIGNED LIMITED BEN SHAHN LARGE FOLIO HAGGADAH, WITH ORIGINAL COLOR LITHOGRAPH SIGNED BY SHAHN 27. SHAHN, Ben. Haggadah for Passover. Paris: Trianon Press, (1966). Large folio (13 by 17 inches), unsewn as issued, original glassine wrappers, original clasped parchment box. $6500 Beautiful large limited folio Passover Haggadah, number 175 of only 228 copies (out of a total edition of 292) on Arches Vergé paper, illustrated by Ben Shahn with 21 color pictorial borders and line drawings and an additional beautiful double-page color lithograph also signed by him. Lithuanian-born graphic artist Ben Shahn executed many of the illustrations for this Haggadah around 1930, while working on a pictorial representation of the Dreyfus case and conceiving his celebrated series of paintings of the Sacco and Vanzetti trial. Like those for his secular works, Shahn’s Haggadah illustrations highlight the struggle against oppression, a theme central to the story of Passover. In 1965 Shahn reproduced these Passover drawings, which had already been acquired by the Jewish Museum, incorporating them into this extraordinary Haggadah. Shahn’s yearlong visit to Djerba, off the Tunisian coast, and his masterful calligraphy lend this Haggadah an oriental feel. Text in Hebrew and English. Only very mild discoloration to original box. A beautiful production in fine condition.

B A U M A N R A R E B O O K S spring gifts a p r i l 2 0 2 4 28 A “DECEPTIVELY PROFOUND LITTLE BOOK”: PRESENTATION FIRST EDITION OF FIRST BOOK OF RHYTHMS, 1954, BOLDLY INSCRIBED IN THE YEAR OF PUBLICATION BY LANGSTON HUGHES 28. HUGHES, Langston. The First Book of Rhythms. New York, 1954. Square quarto, original green cloth, dust jacket. $5500 First edition, first printing of the pivotal second work in Hughes’ influential series, showing “how all the world is connected by rhythm,” an exceptional presentation copy boldly inscribed by him in the year of publication to his longtime friend Zell Ingram, “For Zell, sincerely, Lang, New York, May, 1954.” Ingram (1910-71), active in the Harlem Artists Guild, was Hughes’ traveling companion on a trip to Haiti and Cuba in 1930. In his five-volume First Book series, Hughes “traces the African journey… from First Book of Negroes (1952), through First Book of Rhythms (1954), First Book of Jazz (1955) and First Book of the West Indies (1956) to First Book of Africa (1960)… To Hughes, the ‘rhythms of life’ connect idioms, for the universe seems to be an almost living organism that connects all people and things” (Miller, Art and Imagination of Langston Hughes, xvii). Hughes was especially “pleased with his First Books of Rhythms, a ‘deceptively profound little book,’ one scholar judged” (Rampersad, Life V.II: 232). “Starting with zigzag lines on paper, Hughes’ book proceeds through musical notes, the ebb and flow of water, a man batting a ball,and a child spinning a top to show how all the world is connected by rhythms” (Kirkus), and he skillfully “ties it all together into one big beautiful package” (New York Times). The book’s passages on rhythms “put into music and poetry” also point to “Hughes’ representation of jazz, blues and Black vernacular speech rhythms in his poetry… Wynton Marsalis suggests that Hughes based his model for rhythm’s interconnectivity on a jazz ensemble where all the players must keep the rhythm, unlike other genres of music where the drummer alone takes on this responsibility. Extending this metaphor… it could be said that Hughes conceptualized the relationship between writer, reader and text as a jazz ensemble… jazz rhythm (as opposed to metrical verse rhythm) presents a model of democratic collectivity, without implying the need for hierarchy or unison” (Neigh, Recalling Recitation, 87). In Marsalis’ introduction to a 1995 edition, he notes: “As a writer, Hughes likes to swing his thoughts on the printed page. Rhythm was his business, too.” First edition: with “First Printing” stated on title page. The lively, colorful “illustrations by Robin King are closely integrated with the text and dramatic in their simplicity” (New York Times). Blockson 5259. Bruccoli & Clark III:163. Recipient Zell Ingram (1910-71) was active in the Harlem Artists Guild, and accompanied Hughes on a trip to Haiti and Cuba in 1930. He supplied the striking image of a Black Christ that accompanied Hughes’ essay “Southern Gentlemen, White Prostitutes, Mill-Owners, and Negroes” that appeared on the front page of Contempo review in December 1931. Interior clean, light rubbing to cloth at corners and spine ends. Price-clipped dust jacket with some light scuffs along gently toned spine. An extremely good inscribed copy.

B A U M A N R A R E B O O K S a p r i l 2 0 2 4 spring gifts 29 “TO TEN FROM KEN!”: JFK’S FIRST BOOK, WHY ENGLAND SLEPT, WARMLY INSCRIBED BY HIM TO HIS GOOD FRIEND AND LONG-TERM NEIGHBOR 29. KENNEDY, John F. Why England Slept. New York, 1940. Octavo, original red cloth, supplied dust jacket. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $16,000 First edition, sixth printing, of John F. Kennedy’s first book, issued four months after the first printing, of JFK’s striking analysis of Britain’s lack of preparation for WWII, inscribed by him on the front free endpaper to his good friend and long-term neighbor Nancy Tenney Lloyd, “To Ten from Ken!” and further inscribed on the rear pastedown, “Ten: It’s my hope that this book will interest you—as it is pregnant with significance as are you.” Published the year JFK graduated from Harvard, Why England Slept was an expansion of his senior thesis. The title is a variation on the title of Churchill’s While England Slept, issued about two years before. Kennedy’s work focuses on why England was so poorly prepared for WWII and why its leaders settled upon the disastrous policies of appeasement. The book served as a warning to those in America who felt that appeasing Hitler and staying out of the war were viable options. It became a bestseller and went through several printings in its first year. “For all Americans who are wide awake enough to read… this book is invaluable… [It is] a remarkable book in many respects… If John Kennedy is characteristic of the younger generation—and I believe he is—many of us would be happy to have the destinies of this Republic handed over to his generation at once. This book has the rare and immensely appealing quality of combining factuality and breadth of understanding with the truest instincts of patriotism” (Foreword, Henry Luce). While this book is a sixth printing from October, 1940, Kennedy likely inscribed it in 1943 when recipient Nancy Tenney Lloyd (later Nancy Tenney Coleman) was pregnant with her first child, who was to be the godchild of Kennedy’s sister, Kathleen “Kick” Kennedy. Nancy Tenney Lloyd had been a long-time neighbor to the Kennedys at their Hyannis Port residence and was one of Kathleen Kennedy’s closest friends. In the recently published White House by the Sea, Tenney described herself as “I was like one of the [Kennedy] children.” Kick and Nancy referred to each other as “Ken and Ten,” and it is clear from this inscription that JFK Jr. also picked up the nickname. At the time, Nancy was married to Navy pilot Demarest Lloyd, Jr. and was expecting her first child, Tangley C. Lloyd. This volume was likely inscribed during Kennedy’s service in the Naval Reserve during World War II and just prior to his heroic command of PT-109 in August 1943. Tangley Lloyd was born in April 1944, and tragically her father would be killed in action just a few months later at the Battle of Saipan. Nancy would go on to marry Robert S. Coleman in 1947 and raise a family of six children in Greenwich, CT, but she remained in touch with the Kennedy family, particularly Rose Kennedy in her later years. Stated “Sixth Printing, October, 1940” on copyright page. Recipient’s ink signature on front pastedown. Slight rubbing to corners and ends of gently toned spine, a few faint stains to cloth. Wear to dust jacket, with shallow chipping along top edge, mostly at spine. A very good inscribed presentation-association copy.
