GEJAAGD DOOR DE WIND [GONE WITH THE WIND]. Margaret Mitchell. GEJAAGD DOOR DE WIND [GONE WITH THE WIND].
Anton Piek. Haag: Zuid-Hollandsche Uitgevers Maatschappij(S. Holland Pub. Co), [1937]. Illustrated Dutch edition. A translation of Margaret Mitchell's classic GONE WITH THE WIND in three volumes: "Vuur Over Land [Land on Fire]"; "Als Een Vlam in de Storm [Like a Flame in a Storm]"; "Het Zaad Ontikiemt [The Seed Sprouts]." The first volume is designated a 30th printing on the title page and the other two are designated 28th printings. Must have been some really small printings as the books appear to be scarce. Translated by W. J. A. Roldanus Jr. Illustrated by renowned artist Anton Pieck with over 25 paintings and drawings. Each frontispieces matches the respective dust jacket illustration. Tan boards over green cloth stamped with red and black on spine; intricate emblem on front board in red and gilt. Volume one's dust jacket has a thin closed tear down the left edge of the spine and Volume two's has a tear along the bottom of the spine. All three have some minor damp staining to the base of the spine with only volume two's extending to some of the back pages. Otherwise in very good condition in heavy paper dust jackets with duplicates of color frontis pictures attached to front covers. As best we can determine the set is scarce but the original jackets are much scarcer, perhaps rare.

THE EYE. Vladimir Nabokov. THE EYE.
New York: Phaedra, 1965. First edition, so stated. We believe this to be the first issue/state with publisher's address on copyright page and dust jacket printed on white laid uncoated paper with Trident Press mentioned at bottom of back flap. Although Juliar does not assign a priority to the two issues, we believe it would be first as it matches an advance copy we had in stock. The book is fine and bright in the white dust jacket showing a little aging with one tiny closed tear at bottom corner. Publisher's address on copyright page, presumably making this a first issue, in that we have an uncorrected proof with the address on the copyright page also (copies noted without the address are presumably later issues). Name and address on front endpaper, otherwise fine in white dust jacket with a little darkening around edges.
