        Helen of Troy and Other Poems [Signed Association Copy]

      New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons, 1912. First edition, second printing. Hardcover. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the first edition, second printing in the Publisher's original paper-covered boards (corners rubbed and worn, former presumed bookplate removed from front pastedown), lacking the (presumed) rare dust jacket, BEING A PRESENTATION COPY FROM SARA TEASDALE TO JOHN REED signed and inscribed on the front free endpaper as follows: "For Mr. Reed / from / Sara Teasdale / March 1913." later owned by LENNOX ROBINSON, the Irish poet, dramatist, and theatrical producer, and SIGNED BY LENNOX ROBINSON on the second front free endpaper. John Reed (1887-1920) was an American journalist, poet, and social activist, critical in the founding of America's Communist Labor Party, and best known for his first-hand account of the Bolshevik Revolution, "Ten Days that Shook the World", a revolution he fully supported and hoped to bring to America. He died in 1920 and, being an important person in Revolutionary Russia, was buried in a hero's funeral at the Kremlin Wall Necropolis, a site where pro-Bolshevik victims of the October Revolution were buried in mass graves. The site, next to Lenin's mausoleum, was, following the mass burials of the Revolution, reserved for the burial of politicians and other notables. (Suslov, Stalin, Kalinin, Dzerzhinsky, Brezhnev, and Yuri Andropov, all are interred at the site.) A Very Good copy with a wonderful provenance, SIGNED BY SARA TEASDALE TO JOHN REED AND SIGNED BY LENNOX ROBINSON.

        Les formes élémentaires de la vie religieuse. Le système totémique en Australie. Avec une carte hors texte.

      Paris, Félix Alcan, 1912. 8vo. Completely uncut and unopened, in the fragile original printed green wrappers. Remains of a paper label to front wrapper, otherwise an exceptionally fine, clean, and fresh copy. Light minor brownspotting due to the quality of the paper. Housed in a custom-made green cloth box with gilt red laetaher title-label to spine. (4), 647 pp + folded map + publisher's catalogue (38, (2) pp).. Scarce first edition - especially in this condition - of what is generally regarded as Durkheim's magnum opus, his groundbreaking study of totemism among the Australian aborigines, which led him to the foundational conclusion that religion is social, that the primary purpose of religion is to bind people together. Showing that society is the soul of religion, that society is the foundation of all religious belief, and that religion is what allows for a society to express its social unity "The Elementary forms of religious Life" furthermore explains the enduring relevance of religion throughout history. In this milestone work of sociology, Durkheim sets out to discover the enduring source of human social identity. To that aim, he investigates totemism among the Australian Aborigines, acknowledging that all religion has its origin in totemism. Totems are collective symbols that represent both a god and society. The collective thought, of which totemism is an early expression, is the basis of all religious thought and as such also of philosophy and modern science.The work came to have a profound effect on not only sociology and religion, but also on philosophy, psychology, and history of science, documenting how collective thought, through totemism and religious expression, enabled mankind to enter into a world of concepts and correspondence and to identity causes and relations. All philosophy and science ultimately rests on this collective thought, which allowed mankind to enter into a conceptual realm. "The Elementary Forms has been applauded and debated by sociologists, anthropologists, ethnographers, philosophers, and theologians, and continues to speak to new generations about the intriguing origin and nature of religion and society." (from the English langiuage translation)."The general conclusion of the book which the reader has before him is that religion is something eminently social. Religious representations are collective representations which express collective realities; the rites are a manner of acting which take rise in the midst of assembled groups and which are destined to excite, maintain, or recreate certain mental states in these groups. So if the categories are of religious origin, they ought to participate in this nature common to all religious facts; they should be social affairs and the product of collective thought. At least -- for in the actual condition of our knowledge of these matters, one should be careful to avoid all radical and exclusive statements -- it is allowable to suppose that they are rich in social elements." (From "The Elementary forms of religious Life")

        The DEADWOOD DICK LIBRARY. Lot of 64 Issues [Complete]

      Cleveland:: The Arthur Westbrook Co.,. [1912].. 7-5/8" x 5-1/4". 32 pages each. Lot begins with Volume I, No. 1 ["Prince of the Road"], and continues through Volume V, No. 64 ["Colorado Charlie's Detective Dash"].. Color pictorial wrappers, stapled. Series advert rear wrapper (through #64 of the series).. Some extremity chipping to No. 1. Some issues with unobtrusive tide-. line in top margin. Paper beginning to yellow, as expected.. Overall, a VG - VG+ set, and uncommon thus.. 'Deadwood Dick', aka Edward Harris, "perhaps the quintessential dime novel hero." Written by Wheeler between 1877 and 1885, these numerous stories tell the tale of Ned and his sister Anita, who "are driven from their home in the East by the persecutions of Alexander Filmore and his son, Clarence .... Ill fortune follows them, and young Ned Harris eventually becomes an outlaw and captain of a band of road agents." [Cox. Dime Novel Companion, pp. 73-74]. Mostly set in the Black Hills, the series began publication in Beadle's Half-Dime Library, with republication numerous times, including this set of 64 by Westbrook. While individual Westbrook issues are frequently encountered, a complete set, as here, is somewhat uncommon. . Woodcut engraving to p. 1, duplicating wrapper design.

      London: Macmillan and Co., Ltd, 1912. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. 203 x 140 mm (8 x 5 1/2"). xiii, [1], 356 pp., [1] leaf (ads). FIRST EDITION. Original forest green cloth with gilt golfer on front cover, crossed golf clubs on spine, top edge gilt. 16 photographs, including the frontispiece, showing golfers in action, featuring golfers Harry Vardon, J. Sherlock, and others. Murdock 812; Donovan & Murdock 38210. A number of muted spots (and a half dozen small, light spots) on upper board, a half-inch portion of the front hinge slightly separated, front pastedown with seven black tally marks inked over, isolated trivial foxing in upper margin, one inoffensive yellow stain, but still an excellent copy, the binding almost entirely clean and bright, and the text generally well preserved. Pembroke Arnold Vaile (b. 1866), inventor of the Vaile putter, was a man with a mission to teach a no-nonsense approach to golf. In his view, too many self-styled golf experts have made fools of golfers, instructing learners to play in ways that they themselves never would. In this guide to successful golfing, he declares that golf is a matter of knowing the proper stance and strategy, and moving the proper muscles. If the golfer gets into the right position, and moves according to Vaile's directions, the result should be a winning game. The title is a bit misleading, or perhaps was chosen with irony, as Vaile emphatically does not believe in any mystique of golf, and is contemptuous of those who try to use mind power to move the ball. Throughout the book, Vaile (who must have been unpopular with many of his peers) disparages the approaches offered by other golfing experts, while explaining and endorsing the techniques of selective golfers he has observed.
