THE LATE GEORGE APLEY: A Novel in the Form of a Memoir. John P. Marquand. THE LATE GEORGE APLEY: A Novel in the Form of a Memoir.
Boston: Little, Brown and Co. 1937. First edition of his Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. INSCRIBED, "For Henry T. Brown Jr with kindest regards, John P. Marquand." Also includes two typed letters to Brown signed by Marquand: one saying he can send the books, and one apologizing for getting his name wrong. Brown, a famous book collector, always went by H. Tatnall Brown. The letters are tipped to the endpaper and verso of half-title page (across from title page). First printing, with "Lovely Pearl" on the first line of page 19, as we think it is in all first printings (changed to "Pretty Pearl" in later printings, as outlined in the current edition of our Collected Books). Faint vertical lines on some pages, as usual for this title, otherwise very good to fine in dust jacket with small professional repair at top of spine and to a few tiny chips. A very nice copy of an unaccountably scarce book, and particularly so with what would appear to be an early inscription, as both letters are dated in April 1939. SCARCE CONTEMPORARILY INSCRIBED COPY.

AN EVENING WITH GROUCHO (2 Record Set): Inscribed to his nurse. Groucho Marx. AN EVENING WITH GROUCHO (2 Record Set): Inscribed to his nurse.
(Beverly Hills: A & M Records Inc. 1972). First edition. A&M SP3515. Double album with single leaf insert. INSCRIBED BY GROUCHO ON FRONT COVER in purple, "To Barbara a good nurse and a nice woman / Groucho." It is likely the inscription is to Barbara Winger Bruner, who worked for Marx in 1977, the final year of his life. (According to a 1983 UPI Bulletin, Bruner testified in a lawsuit filed by Marx's estate against Erin Fleming, the Canadian actress who was Marx's companion, characterizing her actions as "hostile and abusive.") This best-selling album was recorded at Carnegie Hall during Marx's last one-man show. The insert features a pictorial collage and quotes from celebrities including T.S. Eliot -- "Your portrait hangs on my wall next to W.B. Yeats. You are my most coveted pin-up. And I am your utmost admirer." Fine.

TWO DISCOURSES: A DEAD FAITH ANATOMIZED and THE SELF-JUSTICIARY CONVICTED AND CONDEMNED. Samuel Mather. TWO DISCOURSES: A DEAD FAITH ANATOMIZED and THE SELF-JUSTICIARY CONVICTED AND CONDEMNED
Boston: Reprinted by J. Draper, for D. Henchman in Cornhill, 1740. First combined edition of these two scarce works which were first published in 1697 and 1707, respectively. [Evans 4560-61, but with linking title page; Sabin 46788-89]. The complete titles are DEAD FAITH ANATOMIZED: A Discourse on the Nature, and the Danger, with the Deadly Symptoms of a Dead Faith, and THE SELF-JUSTICIARY CONVICTED AND CONDEMNED: Or, A Discourse Concerning the Difficulty and Necessity of Renouncing Our Own Righteousness. Pastor Samuel Mather (1651-1728), a cousin of Cotton Mather, is credited with healing a 10-year break in the Congregationalist First Church of Windsor (the oldest Congregational church in Connecticut) which had resulted in the formation of a separate Presbyterian Party of Windsor. This was surely no mean feat. Text pages are darkened, stained, occasionally torn and often edgeworn but intact and wholly readable. Freshly rebound in quarter leather with marbled boards. Only one copy of this combined edition has appeared at auction and that was in 1977. FIRST COMBINED EDITION OF TWO SCARCE WORDS.

CAESAR'S WIFE. W. Somerset Maugham. CAESAR'S WIFE.

We assume it was issued without a dust jacket, as none is mentioned in either Toole or the Rothchild Collection.
