        MISALLIANCE. The Dark Lady Of The Sonnets And Fanny's First Play. With a Treatise on Parents and Children. Inscribed

      London: Constable and Company, 1914 Shaw, George Bernard. MISALLIANCE. The Dark Lady Of The Sonnets And Fanny's First Play. With a Treatise on Parents and Children. Inscribed. London: Constable and Company Ltd., 1914. "It is more dangerous to be a great prophet or poet than to promote twenty companies for swindling simple folk out of their savings". First Edition. Small 8vo. 234 pp. + 2 pp. of ads. A near fine or better copy in light moss green cloth, gilt titles to the spine, t.e.g., in a bright, near fine slightly spine darkened example of the rather uncommon dustwrapper. A significant presentation copy inscribed in black fountain pen on the half-title: "To Robert Loraine, who created Hotchkiss (among / other good turns), from Bernard Shaw. / 17th May 1914". Loraine [1876-1935] was a man of action: actor-manager, soldier, aviator, Fabian & of course, a close friend to Shaw - perhaps best known as an actor he's seen most commonly on holiday with the Shaw’s & Harley Granville-Barker or at Fabian events. Loraine & Shaw shared political affiliations & a passion for theatre: it was Loraine who premiered as the lead in Man & Superman on Broadway, the production was massively successful & launched Shaw as a force to be reckoned with in the United States. "The whole strength of England lies in the fact that the enormous majority of the English people are snobs". - Hotchkiss in GETTING MARRIED first performed in 1908 & published in THE DOCTOR'S DILEMMA, 1911. Excellent example. Custom TBCL embossed cloth slipcase in fine condition. . Signed by Author. First Edition.

        Sindbad the Sailor & Other Stories from the Arabian Nights

      1914. first edition. Preserves To A Marvel the Persian Feeling" First Trade EditionDULAC, Edmund. Sindbad the Sailor & Other Stories from the Arabian Nights. London: Hodder & Stoughton, n.d. (1914). First trade edition. Quarto (10 7/8 x 8 1/4 in; 277 x 208 mm). [ii], 221, [3] pp. Twenty-three color plates mounted on cream stock with decorative border, captioned tissue guards. Publisher's original tan and indigo blue cloth with gilt-stamped lettering and ship and castle design. A fine copy."In some of the pictures for this book Dulac continues with the Chinese style developed for Princess Badoura the year before. In others, he reduces the scale and adds a richness of detail to create an effect similar to that seen in Perian and Indian miniature art. The pictures are generally serious but Dulac's ever-present humor creeps in...And always there is the Oriental inspiration" (Hughey)."Mr. Dulac has provided pictures which preserve to a marvel the Persian feeling" (Times Literary Supplement, Dec.. 10, 1914)."It may have been his friendship with the celebrated connoisseurs, Ricketts and Shannon, that led Dulac to a renewed and closer acquaintance with those Oriental and Greek primitives, which he had already learned to love in his youth...Persian miniatures especially have fascinated him...the fantasies which Scheherazade wove...need a jeweled commentator, and Dulac alone possesses the necessary gifts" (Art critic, Martin Birnbaum, Introduction, Catalog of Dulac exhibition, Scott & Fowles Gallery, NY, December 1916).Hughey 35a.

        Blast: Review of the Great English Vortex (First Edition | Volumes 1 & 2

      London: John Lane, 1914. FIRST EDITION, first printing. Volume 1 & 2 of this famous literary magazine. Both volumes preserve their original covers but there is much wear and chipping. Volume 1 has the front & back cover detached (but present) with chipping around the edges. Light foxing. With volume 2 the text block has pulled away from the the wrappers. Light soiling and slight foxing. Overall reading/collecting copies only. Extremely rare. No other copies available. Photos available upon request. BLAST was the short-lived literary magazine of the Vorticist movement in Britain. It had two editions, the first published on 2 July 1914 and the second a year later. Written primarily by the Anglo-American artist Wyndham Lewis and covered by a notorious pink cover referred to by Ezra Pound as the "great MAGENTA cover'd opusculus", the magazine has become famous as emblematic of the first modern art movement in England, and is now recognised as one of the seminal texts of 20th-century modernism Wyndham Lewis (1884-1957), founder of the provocative arts magazine Blast, was often at odds with his sometime co-conspirator Ezra Pound: indeed both men were usually at odds with most of their friends. But they did agree on one thing: that the writers of Edwardian and Georgian England had failed to throw off the deadening literary mannerisms of the previous century. “As for the nineteenth century,” Pound wrote, “with all respects to its achievements, I think we shall look back upon it as a rather blurry, messy sort of a period, a rather sentimentalistic, mannerish sort of a period.” Some violent corrective was needed. The name of Lewis’s magazine was intended to be an explosive charge that would blow away tired literary and social conventions. It was a calculated assault on good taste, both in its contents and, more immediately, in its form: an oversized, bright pink cover with the single word BLAST splashed diagonally across it. Lewis carefully oversaw the details of typography; visually and rhetorically, Blast is indebted to the polemical style of the Italian artist F.T. Marinetti (1876-1944), the founder of Italian futurism. Marinetti’s vivid manifestos for futurism celebrated a modern aesthetic of speed, technology, and power. Lewis in turn founded a movement he called vorticism, and Blast bore the subtitle The Review of the Great English Vortex. –from Damrosch, The Longman Anthology: British Literature, Volume Two, 1999, p. 2191.. First Edition. Original Wraps. Poor. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Paperback.

        Important Early Autograph Letter Signed, to colleague Sandor Ferenczi, in German, on government post card, postmarked Kusnacht (Zurich) November 10, 1913

      The text in full reads, "Dear Friend, The principle of audietur et altera pars [the other side should also be heard] appears to have vanished in your circles.  'Interpretation' has taken its place. There is nothing further to say. The purpose of my card is to inform you that my name is to be removed from the international journal.  With kind regards, Yours Sincerely, Jung." Jung refers to the Yearbook of the International Psychoanalytic Association of which he was President until April 20, 1914, when he resigned.  Jung had resigned as editor of the Yearbook on Oct. 27, 1913, and met with Freud for the last time in September 1913.  In this letter, Jung seems to be informing Ferenczi of his wish to be omitted from the Yearbook's subscription list.

        Typed letter signed to Henry White and his wife Margaret

      Cheyne Walk, 26 October, 1914. Six and a quarter pages, quarto, on printed letterhead of 21, Carlyle Mansions, Cheyne Walk, S.W. Folds, with a very small strip of browning along one edge of one sheet; else in very good to near-fine condition. A lengthy personal letter addressed to "Dearest, dearest Harry and Daisy!", sending word of mutual friends, discussing the horrors brought on by the outbreak of the First World War [4 August 1914], and thanking them for their letter: "Deeply does one appreciate the sweetness of old fidelities and loyalties pushing through our dark thick envelope here, composed of so many anxieties and horrors and oppressions, so many lacerations and bereavements and mournings… It soothes me exceedingly to think of you in that beautifully umbrageous harbour of security, after the impression lately gathered among us of your rather troubled time and difficult journey at the beginning of the War. To have your own good word for the real lapse of what must have been much of a nightmare … solidly comforts me… We live mainly but in the one sort [of anxiety] here – that is so far as the intimately personal sort is concerned; I mean the constant shock of all the bereavements and losses suffered around us, or the more and more quickened apprehension of the same – every one one knows with any family belongings at all having husbands, sons and brothers deeply engaged… [Y]our charming allusion … brings back to me in a way that makes this whole stretch of the past, of all the past, as I knew it but three months ago, seem a dim antediluvian thing, prehistoric, fabulous, incredible for felicity by the mere fact of not having had in it such things… I suppose you are by this time restored to Washington and your beautiful conditions there; beautiful indeed must they be in your Indian-summery tone of air and light and colour… oh how I wish, I might sit there with you for an hour – under the great Sargent portrait, say, and opposite … its incomparable original… [W]ere I cast ashore at Washington as an ancient piece of wreckage I should beg to be washed to your feet, and picked up and wiped off and kept to the perhaps quite near end of my time. Apropos of the Portrait you may be interested to know that its author has been all this time stranded in an Austrian Tyrolese valley, painting away, but considerably embarrassed – and is now hoped for here again… I embrace you both bien fort and am your faithfully fondest old friend." The recipients of this letter were Henry White and his wife, Margaret. Henry ("Harry") White (1850–1927) was a prominent U.S. diplomat during the 1890s and 1900s, and one of the signers of the Treaty of Versailles. Theodore Roosevelt, who was president during the peak of White's career, described White as "the most useful man in the entire diplomatic service, during my Presidency and for many years before." Colonel House, the chief aide to Woodrow Wilson, called White "the most accomplished diplomatist this country has ever produced." In 1879 White married Margaret ("Daisy") Stuyvesant Rutherfurd (1857–1916?), an ambitious and hard-working woman who encouraged her husband to pursue the career in diplomacy in which his years in Europe had interested him. As a married couple, Henry and Margaret White had been popular with British intellectuals, and were charter members of The Souls. The Whites made themselves welcome in salons throughout Europe and Washington D.C., making and renewing friendships with Theodore Roosevelt, John Hay, Chauncey Depew, Henry Cabot Lodge, and Levi P. Morton, among many others. These relationships White had formed with both British and American leaders were what made him an invaluable diplomat. White was able to serve as an unusually effective intermediary between the British and American governments because he was known and trusted by both sides. As apparently alluded to in this letter, the Whites were in Germany at the outbreak of World War One, and were sequestered in Berlin for two weeks, before being able to leave for home in Washington D.C. via Holland. James had known John Singer Sargent since 1884. Sargent painted his well-known portrait of James in 1913 to celebrate the author's seventieth birthday. He had painted an equally well known portrait of Mrs Henry White in 1883 (now Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington DC). Sargent was in the Austrian Tyrol at the outbreak of the First World War, and was trapped there without a passport and regarded as an alien.

Indian currency had been a vexed question ever since bimetallism was abandoned in 1873. Keynes had a two-fold task; he had to convince the Commission of his view, already expressed in his book, that actual developments had been in the right direction and that the system known as the gold-exchange standard was superior to the full gold-standard. His second task was to procure a distinct advantage by establishing a State Bank. The Commission assigned to Sir Ernest Cable and Keynes the task of preparing the draft proposal. Keynes had some consultations with Cable, but it seems that he did the main part of the work himself which was published as an Annexe to the final Report, and it received an encouraging response in the Report itself. The Annexe gave Keynes the scope to elaborate more fully than ever before his ideas of currency management. He argued that it would be desirable to develop in India a more extended money market and bank-rate control. Marshall was full of praise: [it is] a prodigy of constructive work... we old men will have to hang ourselves if young people [like Keynes] can cut their way so straight and with such apparent ease through such difficulties." see Harrod, Life of John Maynard Keynes, pp.164-71. This report is both important and rare.
