Day-Lewis, Cecil. BEECHEN VIGIL And Other Poems. London: Fortune Press, [1925]. First edition of the poet's first book. 8vo. Laid into this copy is a brief TLS from Day-Lewis agreeing to sign the book. The poet, who was part of the Auden-Isherwood-Spender coterie at Oxford, is notable in at least two other ways: as the author of the celebrated Nicholas Blake mystery novels, and as the father of actor Daniel Day-Lewis. Deckle-edged wrappers with label. A notably fine copy of this fragile volume. Housed in a custom-made cloth slipcase and matching chemise.

sister carrieDreiser, Theodore. SISTER CARRIE. New York, Doubleday, Page, 1900.  First edition of the author’s first book. 8vo. One of 1000 copies printed, of which 450 remained unbound. Widely regarded as the first modern American novel and considerably more difficult to locate in collector’s condition than even its modest limitation suggests.  The book was effectively suppressed after publication by Doubleday, Page because of its perceived immoral content.  This copy easily qualifies as the best ever known to us—the red cloth bright, the pages white, the hinges tight.  Accordingly it is priced at twice what the best copies currently available are, while being twenty (or more) times rarer in such pristine and unprecedented condition.  Hardcover. Housed in a custom-made slipcase.
