        The Fairy-Faith in Celtic Countries

      Henry Frowde, Oxford University Press, London 1911 - 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. 552 p. First edition of the first book published by Walter Yeeling Evans-Wentz (1878-1965) who is best remembered for his studies on Tibetan Buddhism and the subsequent publication of "The Tibetan Book of the Dead" in 1927. Of German -Irish descent, Evans-Wentz studied religion, philosophy and history at Stanford University and was deeply influenced by visitors such as W.B. Yeats (who is one of the two dedicatees in this book). He then attended Oxford and studied Celtic Mythology and Folklore, performing ethnographic fieldwork collecting fairy folklore in Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Cornwall, Brittany, and the Isle of Man. In 1911 Evans-Wentz published his degree thesis as this book which has gone through numerous reprintings, at least as recently as 1977. ***DESCRIPTION: Fully bound in evergreen ribbed cloth, gilt vignette to the front with various symbols contained within a wheel, including a shamrock, thistle and the Welsh dragon; the spine has a gilt vignette of the rising sun within Stonehenge and gilt lettering; top edge gilt; the front pastedown has the private library stamp of the Sufi temple from whom we acquired the book; frontispiece a vintage photograph of the stones of Carnac in 1909, title page in red and black, nine-page Index at the rear; octavo size (just over 8.5" tall), pagination: (i)-xxviii, (1)-524. ***CONDITION: The book is now near fine; when acquired it had several condition issues which we had addressed by a professional restorer (name available upon request). The volume has a strong, square text block, solid hinges, perfectly straight corners with no rubbing, and the interior is clean and bright; the gilt design on the front cover was bright and unrubbed when we acquired the book and remains lovely; the gilt on the spine was nearly as bright, alas, there was a chip at the head of the spine which our restorer replaced to protect the text block, but the very top edge of the first word ("The") of the title on the spine was lost. Remaining condition issues are a few stray marks to the binding and some private library markings (stamped and hand-written) on the front and rear pastedowns, and one number on the front free endpaper (please see pictures and request more if needed); one can also just see where the necessary restoration work was done to the spine, joints, and edges. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the Abe standard does not always cover costs; please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell. Please contact us with any questions you may have, we are here to help. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Charles Scribner's Sons New York 1911 - First Edition. An early and uncommon Lowndes title, not found in Hubin. Dustjacket copy describes the book as "a powerful and impressive story laid in England, but the central character is a fascinating Greek, beautiful and ambitious." An early New York Time's review of the book describes it thus: "The character of Athena is a masterpiece in its way. Mrs. Belloc-Lowndes has drawn a woman without conscience, without sympathies, absolutely self-centered, but possessing both passions and charm. The wife of an old man who thoroughly understands her, and whom she does not love, lets nothing stand in the way of gratifying her passing fancies for other men".

      London, Longmans, Green and Co., 1911. FIRST EDITION 1911, WITH A FOUR PAGE AUTOGRAPHED LETTER TO LORD ROSEBERY AND AUTHOR'S COMPLIMENT SLIP. 8vo, approximately 225 x 140 mm, 9 x 5½ inches, 28 photographic illustrations mostly 2 images on 1 plate, pages: x, [1], 1-335 including index, original publisher's blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Slight rubbing to cloth, corners slightly bumped, endpapers age-browned, engraved book-plate to first pastedown, probably that of Lord Rosebery. A very good copy. The letter dated 7 April 1911 and written on Ditchingham House headed notepaper: "Dear Lord Rosebery, Some years ago I remember you telling me that you had read my book "Rural England" I now send you another "Rural Denmark and its Lessons" which I venture to hope that you may find time to look through. I do not know that you will share the conclusions to which I have come, or at any rate all of them, but I hope & believe that you will agree with me that the extension of ownership (not one certainly among small holders) & the establishment of cooperation are desirable & indeed necessary to our national welfare. Believe me truly yours, H. Rider Haggard. P.S. My Salvation Army Settlement scheme was duly knocked on the head by a Departmental Committee appointed to that end. It seems a pity since had it been carried out the trebling of the value of the enormous tracts of territory which the Canadian Gov.t was then willing to give for its execution (which has since happened) would have made of it (I believe) a great financial, as well a(sic) social success. But the scheme trod on too many toes & offended too many vested interests, So having done the work I was sent to do I was duly executed by the usual Departmental Committee hatchet! That does not matter but unfortunately the lost opportunity will never return." MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE, FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

        Manifesti dei Musicisti Futuristi

      Milan: Direzione del Movimento Futurista, [1911]. Single sheet folded once to make [4]pp. Soft horizontal fold to middle with a few tiny spots of loss to the rear, else a very good example of this early Futurist manifesto, the first on music. The first musician to "surrender to the persuasion of promises and liberation", Pratella was courted early on by Marinetti to join his new movement that he hoped would breathe new life into Italian culture. Though not as nihilistic as Russolo's Art of Noises published three years later, he still makes what at the time, were revolutionary demands that musicians break from the traditional, proclaiming in a later manifesto that" the new order of disorder should be created by destroying the ancient schemes."

One page has some small black spots on it and there are some scattered marks, and at edges; one illustartion has loss at one corner and a couple of pages have tiny nicks; else the book is really very good. There is an author inscription written in pencil which can be erased but we have elected to retain since the book's previous owner was the noted Australian artist Enid Philip and it appears that these illustrations and this book may have provided some of her inspiration [may account for the little black spots [paint?] on the page mentioned above!]. 190 pp. A RARE AND HIGHLY COLLECTIBLE BOOK.

      1911. BAIN, Francis William. Works. London: Methuen, (1911-13). Nine volumes. Slim 12mo, contemporary three-quarter red close-grain morocco, raised bands, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, marbled boards and endpapers, top edges gilt. $1750.Mixed later editions comprising this nine-volume set of Hindu love stories, purported by F.W. Bain to be his translations of ancient Sanscrit manuscripts. Handsomely bound by Bickers & Son.British author of fantasy stories Francis William Bain claimed that the tales he published were translated from ancient Hindu Sanskrit. Bain was for a number of years a fellow of All Souls College at Oxford, and then professor of History at the Deccan College in Poona, British India— presumably being well schooled in both the Eastern and Western traditions. Bain offered the first of these tales, A Digit of the Moon (first published in 1898), as his translation of the eighth part of a 16-part Sanskrit manuscript presented to him by an unidentified brahmin. Argument over the authenticity of BainÂ’s “translations” raged throughout his life. Each of the stories contains erudite footnotes explaining Sanskrit puns and wordplay that Bain himself confessed he did not fully understand. A contemporary reviewer saw it this way: “Though palpably a pretence, they are graceful fancies, and might as well have appeared for what they really are instead of masquerading as ‘translations.Â’ No Hindu, unless of this generation and under foreign influence, ever conceived these storiesÂ… Moreover, they are of a strict propriety, whereas original Hindu love stories would put RabelaisÂ’s ghost to the blush” (The Nation, 1905). A Digit of the Moon was followed by a number of other stories in the same mode: including In the Great GodÂ’s Hair, Bubbles of the Foam, An Essence of the Dusk, Ashes of a God, Mine of Faults, and A Heifer of the Dawn. A fine set, with only light flecks of foxing to fore-edges, elegantly bound.

      1911. Bologna 178x114 mm 1 bifolio, scritte 2 pagine. Busta conservata. Manoscritto a inchiostro nero "[...] Prima di tutto, e di nuovo, silenzio assoluto. Come si lavora bene nel silenzio! E' ora di mettersi all'opera. Per Giugno io direi che potessimo metter fuori il primo volume dei Poemi del Risorgimento. [...] Si vogliono tavole a colori, da riprodursi nel miglior modo. La prima dovrebbe essere Napoleone a Sant'Elena. [...] La seconda [...] può essere o una notturna cavalcata di un reggimento di cavalleria che va al galoppo verso Novara. C'è tra loro, ammantellato, spaventato dal destino che porta con sé, il giovane principe di Carignano, Carlo Alberto, che ha tradito e abbandonato la causa della libertà e ubbidisce agli ordini del re [...] che vuole che vada a Novara [...] O può essere Garibaldi giovinetto a Roma. Ma per questo bisogna che tu attenda il poema [...]. Quando mi avrai scritto, riscriverò. Silenzio! Tuo Giovanni Pascoli [...]".
