Item Description: London: Hodder and Stoughton, [1914], 1914. Quarto. Original blue cloth, titles and pictorial decoration to spine and upper board gilt, pictorial endpapers. Contemporary gift inscription to front blank. Lightly rubbed at extremities with some minor scuffs to the lower board and spotting to edges of text block. Tipped-in colour frontispiece and 24 plates with printed tissue-guards. First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author on the verso of the front free endpaper, "To Miss Bernadine Murphy with my kindest regards, Kay Nielsen, April 1947". Also with a one-page manuscript letter signed by the author to the book's owner and dated October 10, 1948. Nielsen thanks Murphy for what seems to have been her attempt to find him work as an art teacher. "It was a charming act of yours to mention my name and talk about me as a teacher of art. It would have been wonderful if such arrangements could have been made but already at that time we were about to leave", as he and his wife had been "trying to arrange our return to Denmark to join Ulla's mother. It has taken a lot of effort". Nielsen had been living in the US since 1936 and working for, among others, the Walt Disney animation studio. His finances became precarious during this period, and he and his wife received much help from friends. It seems that Murphy was one of these long-time friends and admirers: a gift inscription indicates that the book was given to her by a friend in 1914 and kept long enough to be signed by the author when she met him in the 1940s.

Interestingly the plate facing p18 is mounted on an additional blank page following. There are a very few light foxing spots only, limited mostly to the margin. The very scarce dust jacket is in very good condition. There is some fading to the exposed parts. There is rubbing to the fore edge corners with minimal loss and chipping to the spine tips with the loss of the word "of" in the title on the spine and lesser loss to the bottom. All in a really nice early reprint of Nielsen's most famous work in very good condition with an extremely scarce dust jacket. If you would like any further information or images, please do not hesitate to ask. Bookseller Inventory # 000394

Signed and inscribed by Kermit Roosevelt on October 18, 1926. Original publisher's cloth. Extremities lightly rubbed, rear board scuffed, gilt dimmed, else very good. East of the Sun and West of the Moon is a chronicle of Kermit and Theodore Roosevelt's fist Asian expedition, the 1925 Simpson-Roosevelts-Field Museum Expedition. Inspired by their father Teddy Roosevelt's post-presidency African safaris, the two brothers set out in search of the Marco Polo sheep (ovis poli), a rare subspecies of mountain sheep with distinctive curved horns whose image is stamped in gilt to this volume's front cover. East of the Sun recounts this trip, with the chapters written alternately by each brother. Additionally, the text is illustrated with Kermit's photographs from the exhibition, which further relates the Roosevelt sons' expeditions to their father's African safari, on which Kermit also served as photographer.
