FOUR QUARTETS. T. S. Eliot. FOUR QUARTETS.
New York: Harcourt, Brace, (1943). First edition, one of only 788 copies released. States "first American edition," as called for; in first-state dust jacket with $2.00 price in upper corner of front flap, back flap blank, and nine titles listed in bold on back panel ending with "Old Possum's...." Collects BURNT NORTON, EAST COKER, THE DRY SALVAGES, and LITTLE GIDDING, which were first published separately in pamphlet form in London from 1940 to 1942. Cyril Connolly included FOUR QUARTETS in his "Modern Movement: 100 Key Books 1880-1950," saying it was "the most important poem since Yeat's 'The Tower,' and, as many think, of the century." Good to very good with touch of faint scattered foxing and gilt on spine somewhat dulled (still very readable). The E. McKnight Kauffer-designed dust jacket shows a little aging and has been professionally repaired, filling in chipping along top edge and closing one tear. Still, overall, very good.

ORPHANS OF THE SKY. Robert Heinlein. ORPHANS OF THE SKY.
London: Victor Gollancz Ltd, 1963. True first edition. Although the dust jacket proclaims it to be the "First publication in this country of 'A Classic of Science Fiction'," the UK edition actually precedes the U.S. Contains two novellas published in the U.S. in serial form in Astounding Science Fiction magazine, "Universe" and "Common Sense"; together they are part of Heinlein's "Future History" series. The book shows subtle evidence of a previous life in a library--front free endpaper very neatly excised, thinning to few areas from erasure (title/copyright leaf; base of last page), and touch of minor wrinkling to rear free endpaper--which is too bad because otherwise it is near fine in a fine dust jacket.

SEVEN PILLARS OF WISDOM. T. E. Lawrence. SEVEN PILLARS OF WISDOM.
London: Jonathan Cape Ltd. 1935. First edition thus -- the limited issue of the trade edition (preceded by two very limited editions in the 1920's). Number 701 of 750 numbered copies issued simultaneously with the general trade first edition. "Lawrence of Arabia's" autobiographical account of his experiences serving with rebel forces during the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Turks as a British liaison officer from 1916 to 1918. Quarter tan pigskin over brown buckram boards; gilt stamped spine and front cover; top edge gilt and other edges untrimmed; marbled endpapers. Small abrasion to top-edge gilt otherwise very fine. Lacking the rare, plain brown paper dust jacket but in a slipcase which appears to be original as it is covered in a plain tan cloth very closely matching the color of the leather spine. For the record, Philip O'Brien in his Lawrence bibliography notes that the "jacket [is] rarely present" and calls for the book to be "boxed." If the slipcase present here is the box he speaks of, it would seem to be quite rare as we are unable to locate a copy in slipcase offered online or a picture of the book with one. The collector from whom we purchased this copy informed us he bought it 30 years ago from a Pennsylvania dealer, Dennis MacDonald, who was a Lawrence specialist. (We did not know this dealer who, according to the collector, died years ago.) Regardless of its history, this is a beautiful copy of the book and a quite pleasing slipcase which shows only very minor wear. We don’t think you could find a nicer copy.
