        ANN VERONICA (First Edition, Inscribed and in Original 1909 Dust Jacket)

      London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1909. Wells, H. G. Wells. ANN VERONICA. A Modern Love Story. London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1909. FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL DUSTJACKET, INSCRIBED. ANN VERONICA was Wells' most infamous novel which, of all his hundred plus published works, caused the most public outrage and condemnation. The publisher's brick-red volume is bright and nearly fine save for some shelf-wear and two tiny spots of discoloration to the very bottom edge. The exceedingly rare dust jacket (first we've seen) is complete; it has been reinforced with archival tape on the inside as three inner folds have split and it also sports three evenly-spaced pieces of tape (now dried and inoffensive) on each of the flaps. Despite the DJ's fragile nature, it has commendable shelf appeal. INSCRIBED on the title page by the author to Willard Wiener (1900-1982), the American author who wrote "Four Boys and a Gun" in 1944, later adapted as a film noir. Using the printed title of "Ann Veronica. A Modern Love Story" as a preface to his holograph inscription, Wells continues thus in black ink: "which scandalized England in 1909 & seems very mild stuff indeed (after Hemingway and all that)/ to Willard Wiener in 1940." Underneath signed in full "H. G. Wells." A compelling inscription; the mention of Hemingway seems (at least to us) both remarkable and especially desirable. ANN VERONICA created indignation and furor in 1909 because of the feminist actions and attitudes of the heroine and also because of the affair Wells was having with Amber Reeves, the woman who inspired the novel's eponymous character. It was considered a scandalous novel by many (not just because the "sinners" were granted a happy ending) and was denounced as "capable of poisoning the minds of those who read it" according to one appalled contemporary reviewer. Hammond A5. From the Larry McMurtry Collection of H. G. Wells, with McMurtry's bookplate.. Inscribed By Author. First Edition. Decorative Cloth. Very Good/Very Good.

        IL VIANDANTE, diretto da Tomaso Monicelli, con illustrazioni di ANTONIO RUBINO (Dal num. 1 del 6 giugno 1909 sl n. 11 del 13 marzo 1910), Milano, Agnelli Pietro tipografia, 1909

      Questa scheda è stata impostata quando la libreria ha avurto la collezione completa (cessata con il n. 22 del 1910) Ci è sembrato il caso di ripeterla per questo blocco di giornali, anche per sottollineare l'opera ed il valore culturale di MONICELLI Il titolo del giornale è significativo per delineare il suo disegno politico e culturale ed è strettamente legato al suo direttore ed animatore TOMASO MONICELLI (Ostiglia MN 1883 - Roma 1946) battagliero giornalista, socialista rivoluzionario e poi nazionalista, sindacalista, direttore di altri giornali (L'idea Nazionale, Tempo, Il Resto del Carlino, la prima rivista di cinema italiana IN PENOMBRA), drammaturgo, scrittore, traduttore, direttore dell'Istituto per i drammi di D'Annunzio, ecc. I "filoni" sono ben rappresentati dagli articoli ed inchieste sociali dei collaboratori STORICO - POLITICI: (Allevi G., Bartolotta Stefano - prezioso vice direttore, Boccardi R., Onorevole Bonomi Ivanoe - conterraneo, Bottazzi L., Cenzato G., Colaianni N., De Pietri - Tonelli, Ferrari S., Giolli F., Graziadei A., LABRIOLA ARTURO con numerosi interventi, Longobardi E.C., Loria A., Marangoni C., Momigliano F., OLIVETTI A.O.al tempo direttore di "Pagine Libere", ORANO PAOLO, con numerosi interventi, Piva Gino, Podrecca Guido, On. Preopinante, Quadrotta G., Rensi G., Stavelli G., Talamini Alfredo, VALERA PAOLO qui con vari interventi, ma sarebbe poi divenuto acceso rivale di Monicelli, Varazzani S., Zibordi L., ed altri. LETTERARI - ARTISTICI : (Alessi Rino, Altobelli Demos, Anile A., Arcari P., Baldani R., Beltramelli A., BERNASCONI UGO, Boutet E., CAPPA INNOCENZO, Cavacchioli E., Cenzato G., CIARLANTINI FRANCO, Civinini G., Coccia G., D'Ambra L., Della Sbarba S., Fabietti E., Franchi Anna, Giolli R., GIORGERI CONTRI COSIMO, GOTTA S., GOVONI CORRADO - racconto a puntate "Le Lucciole", Gray E.C., LUCINI G.P. con numerosi interventi, Manetti D., Martini F.M., Martoglio G., Motta Luigi - saggio sui Cascella, Nebbia Ugo, Nosari A., Ottolenghi R., Pirro R., Ragghianti A., Rivalta E., ROCCATAGLIATA CECCARDI C., Salucci A., Scarpelli F., SICILIANI LUIGI - con traduzioni di importanti poeti stranieri, Spellanzon C., TERESAH con tre poesie, VANNICOLA G., Vittori E., Zavataro R, ed altri . Di grande rilevanza la pubblicazione delle tre poesie di GUIDO GOZZANO "L'onesto rifiuto", "L'esperimento", "L'Ipotesi" che puo' essere considerata il preludio a "La signorina Felicita" che uscirà nel 1911 nei "Colloqui". I testi sono arricchiti da fotografie, fregi. disegni e caricature (FABIANO, Golia, Golfarelli, Castellucci, Cascella T. e M., Galantara, Rictus, Paoletti, ecc. La testata del giornale è opera di PIETRO CHIESA, fino al n. 29 del dicembre 1909, poi viene disegnata da ANTONIO RUBINO che è sorprendentemente qui presente (notizie assenti nelle bibliografie ufficiali) con suoi disegni, testatine, figurine, in tanti numeri del giornale. Sono circa 30 immagini alcune ripetute, ma tutte di grande efficacia. Qui nasce la storica ed amichevole collaborazione tra RUBINO E MONICELLI, che sarebbe poi felicemente proseguita nel 1912 - 1913 con la mitica "Bibliotechina della Lampada" della Casa editrice LA SCOLASTICA ad Ostiglia di MN (Suo il famoso "logo"), dove oltre a Rubino, ritroviamo GOZZANO, BELTRAMELLI, OJETTI, OLGA VISENTINI, LUIGI CAPUANA lo stesso T. MONICELLI (che fu il primo autore della collana), AMALIA GUGLIELMINETTI, YAMBO e tanti altri., E' con la nascita della casa editrice che prende sostanza la grande amicizia tra MONICELLI e ARNOLDO MONDADORI (entrambi mantovani) che si consolida poi con il matrimonio tra Andreina Monicelli (amata sorella di Tomaso) ed il fondatore della grande casa editrice Mondadori, che negli anni successivi si sarebbe sviluppata a VERONA e poi a MILANO. Probabilmente l'esperienza della rivista "Il Viandante" ebbe funzioni di laboratorio per relazioni con scrittori e uomini di cultura, ma anche per le future fortune editoriali, intrecciate con commesse governative per la scuola (da qui la ragione sociale iniziale). Certamente la passione per l'arte, il teatro, lo spettacolo ed il cinema (T. Monicelli è stato autore anche di numerose commedie e libri teatrali, tra cui "Il Viandante - commedia in tre atti") è stata felicemente assimilata dal figlio (il famoso regista MARIO MONICELLI, il padre della commedia all'italiana, nato a Mantova nel 1915 ed autore di indimenticabili opere come "La Grande Guerra").

        Champion of the World Jack Johnson.

      [Chicago:] Brandt & Scheible, 1909 - Offset-lithographic poster (470 × 390 mm), en grisaille. Mounted, framed and glazed. Lightly browned verso, a few superficial creases, a small chip from the top margin, image unaffected, else very good. Central image of Johnson in boxing pose with stars and stripes sash around his waist, superimposed over a large laurel wreath, either side are oval vignettes, one of the log cabin the "Birthplace of Johnson", the other of "Johnson in his Car", the champion had a succession of flashy and fast cars. A remarkably well-preserved example of this uncommon poster celebrating the ascension to the world heavyweight throne of the great African-American boxer. Having spent several years trying to lure heavyweight champion James J. Jeffries, who refused to allow a black fighter to challenge for his title, into a match, Johnson finally won the title from Canadian Tommy Burns in Rushcutter's Bay, Australia, following a one-sided contest during which Johnson constantly taunted the champion; "Poor little Tommy, don't you know how to fight Tommy? They said you was the champion Tommy?". Visiting Canada the following year he was somewhat more gracious; "Let me say of Mr. Burns, a Canadian and one of yourselves, that he has done what no one else ever did, he gave a black man a chance for the championship. He was beaten, but he was game". Johnson's victory made him "the most hated man in America because he was black, a winner, and he flaunted it all On the eve of the fight, writing for the New York Herald, Jack London told the world, "Burns is a white man and so am I, naturally I want the white man to win". But Johnson won, and continued to win, successfully defending his title for seven years. And each time white America hated him more". (Hauser, The Black Lights: Inside the World of Professional Boxing, p.64). Evidently cheaply produced for display in those bars and club-rooms where the Galveston Giant was venerated rather than despised, it is extremely uncommon to find this piece in such pristine condition.

        The Lowrie History as Acted in part by Henry Berry Lowrie, the Great North Carolina bandit, with biographical sketch of his associates. Being a Complete History of the Modern Robber Band in the County of Robeson, and State of North Carolina

      Lumberton, N.C.: Lumbee Publishing Company / (Freeman Printing Company). (1909). Fourth edition of the Norment account; and first edition with the updated history of Robeson County with particular emphasis on the Tuscarora and Lumbee Indians by Olds. Octavo. 192pp., illustrated from photographs. Illustrated printed brown wrappers. Slight loss at the spine ends, but a handsome and nice, else near fine copy. Henry Berry Lowrie, of mixed Native American, Portuguese, and (probably) African-American blood, was made an outlaw (in part to escape conscription in the Confederate forces in the Civil War, and for possessing firearms, which mixed race people were forbidden to own since the Nat Turner Rebellion) and led a gang of similarly stigmatized blacks and Native Americans in North Carolina, and was considered something of a Robin Hood figure. After the War, Lowrie and his gang (while by no means angels, engaging in robbery and murder of establishment figures) fought against the reinforcement of white supremacy by reconstruction officials and gained the sympathy and protection of the non-white population. While most of the gang was eventually killed or captured, Henry Berry Lowrie's fate, in true legendary fashion, was disputed: some saying he died cleaning his shotgun, others that he escaped and was occasionally seen in the area. This initial account by Mary Norment, whose husband was killed by the Lowries, while unsurprisingly unsympathetic, is nevertheless compelling. Usually found rebound, and very scarce in wrappers. .

Most consider it the finest Japanese design book of all time, this exquisite suite of 60 double page color printed woodblocks is printed and overprinted using opaque and metallic inks to produce a sumptuous surface. This is from an early printing, before cracks had widened in the printing blocks. The condition is very good, with only a bit of the gutter fading and metallic ink transfer common to this work. Definitely one of the cleaner copies internally that we have seen. The exteriors have been restored and show the signs of old chipping away of the overlay paper but the original title labels are still present. The paper overlays are very fragile and so they almost always have at least some problems of condition. In a contemporary supplied clasped chitsu box.
