        A SOUL ON FIRE

      Toronto: Publisher in Canada for Humphrey Milford: S. B. Gundy. New York: John Lane Company. London: John Lane, The Bodley Head, 1915.. Octavo, pp. [i-v] vi [vii-viii] 9-316 [317-318: ads] [319-320: blank], original pictorial olive-green cloth, front panel stamped in red and black, spine panel stamped in red. First edition, first issue. Presentation copy with signed inscription by Williams dated 21 March 1919 on front free endpaper. The recipient of the inscription, Madame Petrova, is almost certainly the actress who went by that name, Olga Petrova (born Muriel Harding in England), a successful screen actress during the teens and a stage actress and playwright afterwards. After complaints from the publisher of Florence Marryat's A SOUL ON FIRE (1898), Willams' novel was recalled and re-titled THEODORA: A SOUL ON FIRE with a canceled title page and new (plainer) binding. "Novel set in Montreal about a beautiful femme fatale, Theodora Carne, who unwittingly exercises a baleful influence on the men in her life. She may or may not be the reincarnation of a witch, but there's no question that her fiancés have a habit of dying after she reveals to them her troubling romantic history. Is it witchcraft? Mesmerism? Astral projection? Or merely some potent psychological dynamic at work? The novel ends up pointing to the last explanation but other supernatural incidents remain unexplained -- and there is the fact of all those 'accidental' deaths. A somewhat confused tale, and the lack of local color is disappointing, but the novel does have some atmospheric touches and provides fresh variations on the femme fatale theme." - Robert Eldridge. Scarborough, The Supernatural in Modern English Fiction, pp. 193-4. Reginald 15368. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978). A clean, bright, nearly fine copy. A scarce book in either issue, but especially the first. (#148184)

        The Songs of a Sentimental Bloke [The Sentimental Bloke]

      1st IMPRESSION. 8vo., 15.5 x 19cm, 126pp. Publisher's original green cloth & trimmed section of dust jacket laid in. Inscribed and signed to his great friend, Sir David Low, in the year of publication. The green cloth is in very good condition, noting a 1mm diameter black dot near the bottom of the front joint. The spine is a little darkened with two tiny chips at the tip of each spine end. The bottom fore edge corner of the lower board has a tiny bump, the others remain firm and square. Laid in is a 13 x 17cm section of what is believed to be the original dust jacket, and appears the same as the frontispiece. Internally, the book is in very good condition. The front free endpaper has two newspaper clippings stuck to it. One shows Hal Gye standing beside C J Dennis' memorial tablet and the other shows C J Dennis and his wife. The half title is inscribed in his characteristic green ink, as follows: 'To Dave Low / with a cobber's disrespect / C J Dennis / Nov. 9/15'. Sir David Low came to the UK from New Zealand via Australia and lodged with C J Dennis. In his autobiography (Low's Autobiography, Michael Joseph 1956) he states: "I shared a studio with Hal Gye, caricaturist, and C.J. Dennis, poet, was our inseperable. Before settling in Melbourne, I lived as a fellow-lodger with Den for a space and finished my cartoons by night on his wash-stand while he read proofs aloud in bed. After that, Hal and I took our studio, and Hal arranged to illustrate Den's book. Thus the association was confirmed". A scarce book made rare by virtue of the author's signature and inscription to a very close friend.

        Ripostes of Ezra Pound : Whereto Are Appended the Complete Poetical Works of T E Hulme, With Prefatory NoteLondon

      Elkin Matthews, London 1915 - 12mo. 64pp. advert page. Third issue, the only one with the Vorticist cover by Dorothy Shakespear. Corinal card covers, rubbed and spotted, Paper spine heavily worn with surface loss. Dorothy Shakespear (14 September 1886 &#150; 8 December 1973) was an English artist. She was the daughter of novelist Olivia Shakespear and the wife of American poet Ezra Pound. One of a small number of women vorticist painters, she had art work published in the short-lived but influential literary magazine BLAST.Dorothy and Pound first met in 1909 in London, and after a long courtship the two married in 1914. They lived in Paris from 1920 until 1924, and in 1925 settled in Rapallo, Italy. In spite of her husband's 50-year affair with Olga Rudge, whom he met in Paris in the early 1920s, Dorothy stayed married to Pound. In 1926 she gave birth to a son Omar Pound, who was raised in England by her mother. By the 1930s she received a number of family bequests, making her financially independent, but lost much of her money by following Pound's advice to invest in Benito Mussolini's Fascist regime.Toward the end of World War II, Dorothy and Pound were evacuated from their home in Rapallo, and for a period she lived with Pound in Rudge's home. After the war, when Pound had been arrested for treason and incarcerated on grounds of insanity in Washington, D.C., she moved there, visiting daily, taking control of his estate, and staying with him until his release. They returned to Italy in 1958; in 1961 she moved to London, leaving her husband to live out the last decade of his life with Olga Rudge. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Internally clean, contemporary ownership to flyleaf 'Ex Libris collectis F. Womack', backstrip sunned and toned, frayed to tips of same, gilt dulled. The Braggs' important summary of their landmark research into crystal structure. Subsequent work in the field proved that the Braggs had 'given the science of crystallography a new basis. Thus the fundamentally different qualities of two forms of carbon, graphite and diamond, are seen to be due to differences in the arrangements of the atoms and in the distances between them. This makes it possible in the laboratory to build new substances and materials based on an arrangement of atoms that will ensure certain desired qualities...' (PMM). For their work on crystal structure analysis, the Braggs received the Nobel Prize in physics in 1915 - the only father and son to have been so honoured.
