MARY DWIGHT [?]
ABOARD THE SS MOREA SS CALEDONIA: (1912). 24mo - over 5" - 5¾" tall. On offer is a super, very interesting 1912 original manuscript travel journal detailing two long distance voyages by a woman, the author, and her husband. The author has inscribed her name on the inside cover and on a tucked in ship board game form and while the first name Mary is distinct we cannot be positive but the surname appears to be Dwight, thusly Mary Dwight and husband Ernest. The first voyage, on the SS Morea, departs from Adelaide Australia to London England via Durban, Cape Town and Las Palmas. We note she mentions that no less than 20 people came to see them off! The second trip on the SS Caledonia was from London to Calcutta, via Marseilles, Port Said and Colombo. Between the voyages she resides in London which in itself is a fascinating and interesting read. This is a well written account, in which she describes in vivid detail, life on board a ship in the early part of the last century, including sailing through storms and towering seas in the Southern Indian Ocean. She also writes well about her shore excursions in Durban, Cape Town, Marseilles, Port Said and Colombo. There are some pages torn out at the back though without loss as the narrative ends seamlessly with the writer arriving in Calcutta. The 7¼ x 5 inch book has approximately 90 pages of narrative and while thee cover is chipped at the spine extremities the book is overall G.. Manuscript. Book Condition: Good

Although it is science fiction, Hodgson, in his evocation of The Last Redoubt of human civilization, sustaining itself against perpetual siege by other-dimensional malignity, has created a mood of soul-threatening damnation that transcends all earlier works of Satanism, witchcraft, werewolves and vampires combined." - Sam Moskowitz (introduction to THE DREAM OF X by Hodgson, p. 9).

Marsh, Richard
London Methuen 1912 - First edition. 8vo. 317pp. + 30pp. ads. Publsiher's red cloth titled in gilt to spine and front board. Minor edgewear and bumping, and what looks like some nibbling to the rear joint with some small loss to the cloth. A very good, strong copy. Internally clean. A nice copy (cosmetic gnawing notwithstanding) of the elusive first appearance in book form of Marsh's intrepid, hot-headed lip reading female detective. Typically with Marsh, despite her initial popularity being won in the pages of The Strand, Miss Marsh is not your standard Holmes imitator. She is a fiercely independent young woman, smart and decisive with a candid and outspoken assessment of her male counterparts; a teacher in a school for the deaf, she has the ability to lip read with great accuracy at distance, in several languages. The exercising of this particular skill is what propels her, more often than not into her adventures amongst knife wielding thugs, society cads and the kind of people that would tie a woman up and cut her hair off, thus driving our heroine to irresistible vengeance. It is abundantly clear that nobody messes with Miss lee and gets away with it. Rare. WTPC7 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Édition originale sur papier d'édition (il n'y a eu que sept grands papiers), justifié à l'œil pharaonique. Précieux exemplaire comportant cet envoi autographe signé de l'auteur : "À Monsieur André Salmon son admirateur toujours attentif et toujours ému. Jean Cocteau. Juin 1912". "Dans son compte-rendu de La Danse de Sophocle dans la N.R.F. de septembre 1912, Henri Ghéon remarque à ce sujet que si Cocteau a choisi « le métier parnassien et néo-classique du vers », il fait aussi preuve d'une qualité « qu'aucun de nos poètes modernistes, sinon André Salmon, ne possède au même degré, c'est une sorte de hardiesse dans l'emploi des mots, qui fait que tous, et les plus actuels, les moins vieillis par l'usage des siècles, prennent dans le vers un éclat, une patine, un relief qui les tirent de la conversation commune. » (in Les ressources du langage parlé dans l'œuvre poétique de Cocteau, par P.-M. Héron, Cahiers de l'Association internationale des études francaises, 2001, numéro 53, pp. 333-350).
