CHRIST IN CONCRETE. Pietro Di Donato. CHRIST IN CONCRETE.
New York: Bobb-Merrill Co. (1939). First edition. Di Donato (1911 - 1992), a writer and bricklayer, was best known for this novel, which recounts the life and times of his bricklayer father, Geremio, who was killed in 1923 in a building collapse. The book was hailed by critics in the U.S. and abroad as a metaphor for the immigrant experience in America [Wikipedia]. INSCRIBED to actress and radio pioneer, Gertrude Berg, "To dear Gertrude Berg -- whom I have enjoyed long before meeting. Salute! Peter di Donato Sept. 1, 1939." Gertrude Berg (1899 - 1966) was a Tony and Emmy Award-winning actress, screenwriter and producer. A pioneer of classic radio, she was one of the first women to create, write, produce and star in a long-running hit when she premiered her serial comedy-drama "The Rise of the Goldbergs" (1929), later known as "The Goldbergs" [Wiki]. Minor cover wear and spine lettering fading otherwise very good. Lacking dust jacket.

BIBLIOMANIA; or, BOOK-MADNESS: The First Edition; Privately Reprinted. Thomas Frognall Dibdin. BIBLIOMANIA; or, BOOK-MADNESS: The First Edition; Privately Reprinted.
[London]: The Club of Odd Sticks, 1864. A facsimile of the first edition originally published in 1809. The lone publication of the "Club of Odd Sticks," which seems to have been formed by Francis S. Hoffman and a few others solely to reprint Dibdin's book [Growell, American Book Clubs, 1897]. ONE OF ONLY 40 QUARTO COPIES (there were also 57 "royal octavo" copies). Three-quarter brown Morocco leather over marbled boards; with marbled endpapers and top edge gilt. An extremely "large paper" copy, i.e., with very large margins. This gentle spoof of book collectors and their idiosyncrasies purports to diagnose and to cure the disease and reportedly gave rise to the term "bibliomania." Penciled note at head of first blank designating this copy "Gift Estate of Nathaniel Paine, October 10, 1921." Presumably a gift to the American Antiquarian Society, as their stamp designating it sold is at rear ("Sold by AAS"). Tips a little rubbed and light stain to front board else near fine. DIAGNOSIS AND CURE?

HARD TIMES: For These Times. Charles Dickens. HARD TIMES: For These Times.
[New York: Household Words, 1854]. First U.S. edition. HARD TIMES first appeared in America in the weekly "Household Words" from May through September 1854. The American publisher of "Household Words," T. L. McElwrath, placed HARD TIMES in such a way that the segments of the novel could be excised and bound up together--which his customers were urged to do. He provided a wrapper (also used for his unissued sheets) in which to bind HARD TIMES, thus constituting the actual first American edition of the novel. This copy, lacking title page and wrapper, starts with page [1] "HARD TIMES. / By Charles Dickens, Esq. /Furnished in advance exclusively for this Journal." 108 double-column pages, bound in period three-quarter leather and marbled boards. Professionally touched up where there was light wear to edges, resulting in a very good to near fine copy of this scarce issue.
