        THE PASSIONATE FRIENDS: A NOVEL Presentation to G. B. Shaw

      London: MacMillan, 1913 The [GB] Shaw Copy. First edition, first issue with all the correct points. A fine copy in the publisher's patterned sage green cloth, stamped in gilt and blind. [very minor offsetting to the endpapers & a small stain at the outside bottom of the front pastedown - still a remarkable fresh copy & an extraordinary example, Inscribed by Wells with a flourish for Charlotte Shaw & George Bernard Shaw through her with good humored advice as follows: "Mrs. Shaw / with warm regards / HGW / and do make GBS try a novel" - The inscription in rebuttal to Shaw having earlier admonished Wells to try writing a play. Green calf clamshell protective presentation case, gilt decorated & lettered at the spine. THE PASSIONATE FRIENDS was produced as a movie by Stoll in 1923, again by David Lean in 1948 (script by Eric Ambler), & again by Paramount in 1952. Wells Soc. 51; Hammond A9. "Bernard Shaw and H. G. Wells were both dedicated to reshaping the world: as Shaw commented in one letter to Wells, " The first volume of [Karl Marx's] Capital (all I ever read of it) changed the mind of Europe; a thing we two have been trying to do all our lives." 1 Although (apart from some satiric fantasies) Back to Methuselah is Shaw's only direct attempt to picture what this change might mean, H. G. Wells was very much in the futures business with almost a third of his voluminous writings being explorations from the present into visionary alternatives. Titles like The World Set Free or Men Like Gods offer much the same ecstatic hope for change as Shaw's "metabiological Pentateuch"; and a comparison between the ways in which each envisaged the future is illuminating. It encapsulates the extremes of the turn-of-the century revolutionary movement in which they were both involved, as well as throwing the nature of Shaw's beliefs into high relief by the contrast. The links between the two writers, both of whom aspired to be the intellectual leader of the new century, are well known: their common membership in the Fabian Society, and the Wells forced resignation after publicizing the scandal of his affair with Amber Reeves (at that time the secretary of the Society) in his novel Ann Veronica, their extensive correspondence from at least 1901 right up to just three days before Wells' death in 1946, which shows that each read the other's work, even sending drafts of some pieces to one another. What has not been as fully realized is the degree to which both Wells' novels and Shaw's plays were written as direct responses to each other's work. There are enough overlaps or cross-references to qualify several of their works as a serious literary conversation, and significantly, the subject of their artistic argument was specifically their idea of the perfect society, and the means through which it might be." - Innes, C. D. "Utopian Apocalypses: Shaw, War, and H. G. Wells" SHAW The Annual of Bernard Shaw Studies - Volume 23, 2003, pp. 37-46, Penn State University Press. Signed by Author. 1st Edition.

      Hammersmith: Doves Press, 1913. ONE OF 200 COPIES on paper (and 12 on vellum) n. Hardcover. 238 x 165 mm (9 3/8 x 6 1/2"). 111, [5] pp. ONE OF 200 COPIES on paper (and 12 on vellum). Pleasing dark blue crushed morocco in the style of the Doves Bindery, covers with gilt-ruled borders and strapwork frame, gilt titling and date on upper cover, raised bands, spine compartments ruled in gilt, vertical gilt titling in two compartments, turn-ins gilt ruled, all edges gilt and gauffered with two rows of tiny dots. In a matching blue morocco-lipped slipcase. Tidcombe DP-32. For the binding: Tidcombe "Doves Bindery," p. 465. Except for the usual faint offsetting from turn-ins, A GORGEOUS COPY, even without the usual fading to the spine, and with no signs of use internally. This is one of the 26 intriguing (and obviously uncommon) examples Tidcombe has identified as imitation Doves bindings, a group of handsomely executed volumes that continue to be mysterious. Tidcombe actually pictures this volume in Appendix III in her "The Doves Bindery" on page 463 (and describes it on page 465). The same design was used for a copy of Milton's "Areopagitica" (Tidcombe 812). She differentiates between forgeries (those books that are stamp-signed with "C - S" and a date) on the one hand and unsigned "copies of Doves bindings or bindings in the Doves style" on the other. But she treats them as one group "because they have several features in common." For example, signed or unsigned, all of the suspect bindings cover Doves Press books, all are bound in dark blue morocco, and all have green silk double headbands with a visible red core. Tidcombe speculates that these bindings might have been executed between 1936 and 1938, and she observes that "the finishing on most of these bindings [as here] is of a very high standard." She also notes that the expert nature of the work on the covers is not matched by the typically less adroit stamp-signed signature, which she conjectures may have been added in the signed examples by another hand after the fact. Although Tidcombe suggests that the person responsible for the forged Doves bindings could possibly have been the former Doves Bindery finisher Charles McLeish, she does not settle on him or any other likely candidate. Whoever was behind them, the volumes in this puzzling group of bindings--like other forgeries and imitations of historically important cultural artifacts--are actively collected for their value as counterfeits. The dramatization of the assassination of the Roman emperor Julius Caesar and the defeat of the conspirators, Brutus and Cassius, at the Battle of Philippi, "Julius Caesar" is one of four plays by Shakespeare that were printed at Doves Press (the others are "Coriolanus," "Anthony and Cleopatra," and "Hamlet"). For the Doves edition, the text of the First Folio of 1623 was followed, with 44 minor emendations, which are set out on slightly more than three pages following the end of the play.

        Mr Fleight

      Howard Latimer, London 1913 - Printing history opposite the titlepage records that the first printing was on April 30th 1913 with this, the second impression, printed on 19th May 1913. This copy was offered for sale by P.Rosier, Bookseller of Swansea and Wales, according to the bookseller's ticket in the bottom left hand corner of the front pastedown, just visible by turning back the corner of the front free endpaper. The front free endpaper was glued to the front pastedown at, or about, the time of publication and the titlepage bears the contemporary rubber stamp of an agent for 'Premier Files, 18 High Street, Cardigan'. The same rubber stamp appears on the rear paste down. The original binding is rubbed and slightly marked, particularly to the top edge of the rear board but the gilt title and author blocked on the top board is bright. There is some light foxing to the front and rear leaves with a penciled name on the half-title otherwise this is a firm, clean copy. The second impression is rarer than the first impression and, given the circumstances of this book's first appearance in print, as described in Harvey's bibliography (A39) , this impression with its apparent association raises an interesting point.

        Lettre autographe signée [à Lucien Descaves]

      1913 - Livre d'occasion Format oblong (12,2 x 9,5 cm), lettre carte à en-tête de la Ville de Paris - Service des Beaux-Arts, 2 pp. rédigée à l'encre brune. "Paris samedi 9 août. Mon cher maître, Je ne sais pas ce que fait Lafond et j'attends toujours que paraisse "La Mêlée" où moins à l'étroit et plus à mon aise à tous points de vue j'ai pu dire à peu près ce que je voulais de Philémon. Ce sera vers le 20 de ce mois que je prendrai ma volée et que j'irai me retremper dans les bois de Landresse témoins de mes vieilles campagne du temps de la Guerre des boutons. Le livre de Deubel "Régner" paraîtra cet automne au "Mercure". J'en ai remis hier le manuscrit péniblement reconstitué à Vallette. Vous verrez quel admirable poète il était. Et dire que parce que nous essayons de le faire connaître un peu et que nous n'avons pas voulu le laisser s'en aller comme un chien, cet imbécile d'Alcanter de Brahm nous aboie aux chausses. Sous la signature de Peer Gynt il a publié dans un petit canard "Alceste" un article qui est un monument de mauvaise foi de bêtise et de calomnie. J'y suis en particulier fort maltraité, mais je me réserve de le bâtonner la première fois qu'il aura le malheur de se trouver devant moi. En plus de sa solennelle bêtise ce pustuleux personnage est le dernier des lâches. Mais je m'emballe et vraiment sa prose ne vaut pas cet honneur. J'ai fait une trouvaille sur les quais ou plutôt ce n'est pas moi qui l'ai faite c'est Machard ; j'ai acheté "Soupes" pour dix sous et dédicacé encore à cette vieille ganache d'Adolphe Brisson. Je vous le porterai en octobre pour que vous puissiez en changer la dédicace. Et il ne sortira plus de chez moi. Je vous souhaite des jours de soleil et de repos et vous prie de croire cher maître mon affectueux dévouement. Louis Pergaud". Condition : Très belle lettre à Lucien Descaves, membre de l'Académie Goncourt, qui couronna le premier ouvrage de Pergaud, De Goupil à Margot, en 1910 (premier Prix Goncourt pour Le Mercure de France), dans laquelle l'auteur évoque La Guerre des Boutons ainsi que Régner le recueil posthume de Léon Deubel, paru en 1913, ouvrage préparé par Pergaud et dont il signera la préface. Pergaud se plaint ensuite longuement d'Alcanter de Brahm qui lui "aboie aux chausses" dans un article paru dans Alceste. Il annonce également avoir trouver sur les quais un exemplaire de Soupes (recueil de nouvelles de Lucien Descaves paru en 1898 chez Stock) et lui annonce lui porter pour le faire dédicacer.

        "Potash and Perlmutter": Original drawing of the characters in this play, ink on board, signed lower right

      n.p, ca. 1913. 14 x 10-1/4 inches. . Fine condition. Bryant and Heneage, pp. 110-11 . In 1910 Montague Glass published Potash and Perlmutter, a collection of stories written in vernacular and dealing with two partners in the cloak-and-suit business. They were immensely popular, and led to a number of sequels and dramatizations, among them the one celebrated here in Raven Hill's lively and expressive drawing Leonard Raven Hill (1867-1942) was born in Bath and studied at the Lambeth School of Art, and in Paris with Bouguereau(1885-87). On his return he became a prolific contributor to various British publications. "Altogether", note Bryant and Heneage, "he was one of the most celebrated black and white artists of the period". In 1896 he joined Punch, an association which lasted 40 years, and ended only when his eyesight began to fail in 1935. "In his prime he was a fine strong draughtsman, good at portraying character and making the most of a wide range of jokes." This drawing shows Potash, and Perlmutter, surrounded by other characters in the play; it probably appeared in Punch around 1913 A SPLENDID THEATRICAL DRAWING BY A NOTABLE ARTIST

        Old Chinatown . . with Text by Will Irwin

      New York: Mitchell Kennerley, 1913 - An important work of documentary and ethnographic photography, " . one of the first and most important examples of the candid-camera approach to documentary photography" (Parr/Badger I). INSCRIBED to Edward Epstean, "whose knowledge and patience are responsible for the excellent reproductions of my Chinatown pictures" and SIGNED ("Arnold Genthe, December 1912"). Epstean (1868-1945) was a pioneering photo-engraver and collector who assembled one of the greatest libraries on the history and science of photography. Though not formally credited in this book, it must be assumed by Genthe's inscription that Epstean was responsible for the book's stunning half-tone reproductions - so rich in tone and detail that they approach the quality of photogravures Second edition, enlarged. 8vo. Illustrated with 91 photographs by Arnold Genthe, printed at the Plimpton Press; ix, [1], 208, [2] pp. Original gilt- stamped black cloth, fraying to cloth at extremities, nick to spine; very good. cf.
