         The Lodger. Copyright edition.

      Leipzig: Bernhard Tauchnitz, 1913 - Octavo (151 x 105 mm). Contemporary orange cloth, gilt lettered green skiver label. Spine rolled and toned, slight wear to back cover, front free endpaper toned and slightly dampstained, yet a very good copy, clean and sound. First Tauchnitz edition, published in the same year as the London and New York editions. Presentation copy from the author to fellow novelist A. S. M. Hutchinson, inscribed on the front free endpaper: "A. S. M. Hutchinson, with the kind thoughts of the writer, Marie Belloc Lowndes". Arthur Stewart-Menteth Hutchinson (1879-1971) was editor of The Daily Graphic and a prolific author whose bestselling If Winter Comes (1922) was, like The Lodger, adapted for the screen (MGM, 1947). Belloc Lowndes's most enduring novel, "a story of a London couple in the 1880s who suspect that their lodger is Jack the Ripper. has undergone various adaptations, as a stage play, several films (including an early Alfred Hitchcock), and an opera by Phyllis Tate. The Lodger was a best-seller in its day, yet Marie Belloc Lowndes found herself constrained in the summer of 1914 to borrow £350 from her brother, Hilaire Belloc, to pay off an overdraft, a debt which seemed to rankle over the years, although in general brother and sister remained friends" (ODNB). Decidedly uncommon: Copac cites just the Bishopsgate Library copy among British and Irish institutional libraries (although there is a copy in the Todd-Bowden Collection at the BL); OCLC adds another 20 worldwide. Inscribed copies are particularly elusive. Hubin p. 256 (not listing this edition) [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

(1611). It is divided regionally into 5 numbered libri, covering Goa, Ethiopia and Monomotapa (Mutapa in what is now South Africa); Cochin (Kochi in India), the Malabar coast, Pegu (Bagu in what is now western Myanmar) and Madura Island; Japan and China; Sierra Leone and Guinea; and Ethiopia.With library stamps.

         A Boy's Will

      London: Nutt 1913 - FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE, FIRST BINDING. Presentation copy inscribed by Frost “Margot Adamson from Robert Frost Oct 4 1913.” Original bronze pebbled cloth lettered in gilt (Binding A). Fine. Half morocco case. Adamson was a 16-year-old Scot who became a translator and author of several volumes of poetry, including A Year of War, and other Poems, published by David Nutt in 1917. In 1914 Frost wrote a generous letter to Adamson discussing her poems. He concluded, “I feel everywhere the energy of your poetry. I expect all sorts of fine things of you.” Thanks to David Lowenherz for this information concerning Adamson. This is a magnificent presentation copy of the first issue of Frost’s first regularly published book, preceded only by Twilight, of which only two copies were printed for the author, one of which was destroyed. Frost arrived in England in 1912, and it was there that he first achieved literary recognition. While living on a farm in Beaconsfield, he made frequent trips to London where he made the acquaintance of the literary circle based around Harold Monro’s Poetry Bookshop. Encouraged by Ezra Pound and others, Frost submitted his manuscript to the firm of David Nutt, which issued it in several bindings. This is one of no more than 350 copies in the first binding. A sparkling presentation copy of this landmark of 20th-century American verse. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

         The Interpretation of Dreams

      London: George Allen, 1913. First Edition. Cloth. Near fine. 1st edition in English, the scarce 1st state, and also the 1st issue. But why is it the 1st state? Let's snuggle up against the bibliography without falling into it. All the 1st edition sheets were printed in England, but only a small fraction of them were issued there with an integral London (George Allen) title page. Almost all of the sheets were sent to the U. S. for the New York (1st American) edition, and they were issued there with a cancel title page, followed by copies with an integral title (likely a case of initially printing a title page to be tipped in as a cancel, and then printing a single sheet bifolium which was sewn in for the integral title page, but not reprinting the text, that came even later). Exact publication dates are not known but the London edition is, inarguably, the 1st state with its integral London title page, exactly as the book was 1st printed. It precedes, the NY edition, probably by a week, or 2. And besides it being the primary edition, it's 20 times (40 times?) scarcer than the NY edition, of which there are always copies for sale, mostly because the London issue was reserved for, and only sold to, "the medical, scholastic, legal, and clerical professions" and never sold to the public, and a printed publisher's note, tipped-in to all copies (present in our copy, missing in others) ratifies this. For contrast, ABPC records 8 copies of the NY issue sold at auction since the mid-1970s, against no copies of this London issue. Original cloth, not known by me to exist in, or have been issued in, a dustjacket. 3 faint spots to the cloth, spine faded a shade darker, first and last few leaves foxed, else near fine (see photograph). Want more? It's a superb association copy. Ex-Dr. Alan W. Tyson, eminent psychiatrist, assistant editor of Freud's Works, and the translator of 3 of Freud's books, as well as 3 of his clinical papers. Our copy has 6 pages of Tyson's apt, closely written, pencil notes on the 4 rear blanks and endpapers, the notes themselves a dissection of the text as earnest as any published. Incorrect attributions of priority for the NY edition follow a simple minded projection from insufficient data; that because the translation, was done by an American (A. A. Brill) the N. Y. issue must precede, another case of convenient erroneous conclusions (bikinis cause hot weather, or spoons make you fat) here drawn from the guesses of expediency, motivated by either materialism (given that it is the NY edition that booksellers always have in hand to sell), or an inability (moral exhaustion?) to be honestly discerning (like having garbage can security judged by raccoons, or tennis ball inflation judged by Golden Retrievers). But our book is the genuine article, and comparing this London edition to the New York edition is like comparing a peach, to peach scented room freshener. And here's a social warning. "Let me tell you about my dream last night…" is, at all times, an introduction that calls for the interjection, "Hold it right there!".

         Indian Motocycle and Yale Motorcycle Photographs (c 1913 New England)

      New England: n.p.. Unbound. Good. A circa 1913 [?] collection of exceptional historical images from original photograph negatives, depicting early Indian and Yale motorcycles with riders in period New England biker gear. Nine photographic negatives, seven being 116 film (image c. 2-1/2 x 4-1/4 inches wide) and two being 105 film (image c. 2-1/4 x 3-1/4 inches wide), together with nine photographs developed from the negatives, each of which is mounted on archival board (c. 5 x 7 inches wide) and all but one of which reveal a beautiful image. Also included is the illustrated negative envelope folder from Iver Johnson Sporting Goods Company in Boston, Massachusetts with "Developing / Printing / Enlarging" services mentioned and "Our new building, corner of Washington and Cornhill." The envelope is in Good condition with a jagged tear to the front panel's upper left, a shorter tear to the lower left, minor soil and edge wear. The folder appears to be hand-dated "1-14-16" inside. Each negative is in Good condition, with one being over exposed. From the photographic evidence, it is apparent that the images are likely from the Rhode Island/New England area, having the bike id numbers "R.I. 8171" or similar painted onto the rear fender of each motorcycle ; a "Providence" pennant flying from one of the side cars and a large "Cameron Car Co." sign [which operated in Rhode Island from 1902 to 1906] visible in the background of a group street shot. Other images show an Indian Motorcycle dealership storefront, rows of vintage Indian and Yale motorcycles, groups of motorcycle riders with pennants (club insignia) pinned onto their jackets, a biker party with the ladies in long dresses and hats, Indian motorcycles gathered at a home, individuals sitting on or examining Indian motorcycles - one of which appears to be equiped with an uncommon racing tank. A professionally made high-resolution TIFF Archive CD is provided of all the images, enabling a close up examination of specific details of the bikes. Note: Please contact us if you wish to have the original Cellulose Nitrate negatives shipped as special arrangements will likely be necessary.

         Princess Badoura; A Tale from the Arabian Nights.

      1913 - London, Hodder and Stoughton. [1913]. 4to. Original cream cloth pictorially stamped in turquoise and gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut; pp. [viii] + 113; with 10 fine mounted coloured plates behind captioned tissues; a fine and immaculate copy, both externally and internally, with all plates and guards in pristine state. First edition de luxe, limited to only 750 numbered copies signed by Edmund Dulac. One of the most elegant and stylish of the early Dulac titles, in which the artist develops his oriental mood. The story of Princess Badoura is the final one in the 1001 tales of fantasy told by Scheherazade to her Sultan husband in the Arabian Nights Entertainments. The pervading light in the images is one of early morning which casts a softness 'as though filtered through the oil-paper walls of a Japanese house'. It is in this work that we first see the influence of Persian miniature painting which later led Dulac to employ flat planes and patterned shapes alongside a stylised and shorthand form of landscape art, as seen in Japanese scroll work (Colin White. Edmund Dulac). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

         The Decorative Art of Leon Bakst.

      The Fine Art Society London 1913 - Folio (41.3 x 28.5 cm). Photographic portrait frontispiece, title, [4] ll., 51 pp. and [12] ll., [1] l., 77 tipped-in plates including 50 in colour. Original publisher's half vellum over marbled boards. Very fresh example of this major luxury work on Bakst's art, the earliest of a series of similar publications. Rare in such good, unrestored condition. "Born in Russia in 1866, Léon Bakst belonged to that young generation of European artists who rebelled against 19th century stage realism, which had become pedantic and literal, without imagination or theatricality. There were no specialist trained theatre designers, so painters like Léon Bakst turned their painting skills to theatre design. Bakst's fame lay in the ballets he designed for the Diaghilev Ballets Russes, and huge pageant spectaculars for dancer and patron, Ida Rubinstein. He died in 1924 but after nearly 100 years his magic is as potent as ever, rediscovered by every generation. His influence was such that people who have never heard his name now see the world in a different way" (Victoria & Albert Museum). [Attributes: Hard Cover]
