        Seven Pillars of Wisdom

      London: Jonathan Cape. London: Jonathan Cape. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. FIRST TRADE EDITION of Lawrence's remarkable memoirs of the Arab Revolt, in stunning binding by Sangorski & Sutcliffe / Zaehnsdorf. "Lawrence had taken part in the preliminary planning of the Arab uprising and, in October 1916, was ordered to Jiddah to assess the military situation. What followed is recorded in Seven Pillars of Wisdom, a personal, emotional narrative of the Arab revolt in which Lawrence reveals how by sheer willpower he made history. It was a testimony to his vision and persistence and a fulfilment of his desire to write an epic which might stand comparison in scale and linguistic elegance with his beloved Morte d'Arthur and C. M. Doughty's Arabia deserta. Subtitled 'A triumph', its climax is the Arab liberation of Damascus, a victory which successfully concludes a gruelling campaign and vindicates Lawrence's faith in the Arabs. In a way Seven Pillars is a sort of Pilgrim's Progress, with Lawrence as Christian, a figure sustained by his faith in the Arabs, successively overcoming physical and moral obstacles" (Dictionary of National Biography). London: Jonathan Cape, 1935. Quarto, recent full ocher morocco with binder's stamp of Sangorski & Sutcliffe / Zaehnsdorf, gilt design on front board, marbled endpapers, gilt-ruled dentelles, all edges gilt. A FINE COPY.

        Autograph Letter Signed to Sir Sidney Colvin, 24 April 1916

      Capel House, Orlestone, Nr. Ashford, 24 April 1916. Capel House, Orlestone, Nr. Ashford, 24 April 1916. First Edition. Fine. In the letter Conrad thanks Sir Sidney Colvin (1845-1927) for going to see a bust that was made of him and implies that Colvin wasn't overly impressed with the result. In the letter Conrad mentions that the artist also did busts of Page and Zangwill. Research has found that the American sculptor Jo Davidson (1883-1952) completed busts of both Conrad and Israel Zangwill (1864-1926). According to his memoir, "Between Sittings" (1951), Conrad sat for Davidson in 1915. Davidson was a contemporary of Edward Steichen, Arthur Carles, John Marin, Marsden Hartley, and Laurence Fellows and part of the wave of the Modern School in New York in the early 20th century. & & Sir Sidney Colvin, literary & art critic, was a friend of both Conrad and Robert Louis Stevenson.  Letter is in its original folder, Lot 126, from an Anderson Galleries auction of the collection of E. V. Lucas and comes with the transcription of the letter prepared for the sale. Lucas wrote a biography of Lord and Lady Colvin in 1928, "The Colvins and Their Friends" and may have used these letters in the course of his work. Full transcription of the letter available upon request. 10" x 8" handwritten in fountain pen on both sides, signed "J. Conrad." Printed stationery from Conrad's home, Capel House in Orlestone, Nr. Ashford. Four creases where it was folded in half, twice, to fit in a small envelope. No tears or chips, small stain on front page that may have happened as Conrad was writing. Very clean overall.

A Near Fine copy with a few short tears at the spine ends and the spine gilt oxidized (or just very dull), as common, otherwise a lovely copy. Housed in a basic clamshell case. & & The author's first novel, a semi-autobiographical work, that laid the groundwork for his masterpiece, "Ulysses." This novel is more accessible than some of his later work. It tracks the physical, emotional and psychological growth of a young Joyce as he searches for his voice and his path in life, culminating with the decision to pursue his art abroad: "I go to encounter for the millionth time the reality of experience and to forge in the smithy of my soul the uncreated conscience of my race." & & "It is a mosaic of jagged fragments that does altogether render with extreme completeness the growth of a rather secretive, imaginative boy in Dublin. The technique is startling, but on the whole it succeeds." -- H. G. Wells. Near Fine.

        CORRESPONDENCE, Including La Guardia's Wedding Invitation (8 pcs total).

      1916 - 1941 1916 - LaGuardia, or "Little Flower," is widely regarded as one of the best mayors in New York City history, whose tenure redefined the office. He was the 99th mayor of the "Big Apple", serving his populace from 1934 - 1945. For those twelve years, the 5 foot 2, sometimes belligerent, chief executive dominated life in New York City as if he was 7 foot 2. Unlike many politicians today, he fulfilled many of his pledges, especially the ferreting out of corruption in the city's government. Such earned him a reputation for placing the city's interests ahead of political considerations, and in the same vein, although technically a Republican, he worked closely with the New Deal administration of President Franklin Roosevelt to secure funding for large public works projects. These federal subsidies enabled New York City to create a transportation network the envy of the world, and to build parks, low-income housing, bridges, schools, & hospitals. Furthermore, he achieved the unification of the city's rapid transit system, a goal that had long eluded his predecessors, and he reformed the structure of city government by pushing for a new City Charter. He presided over construction of New York City's first municipal airport on Flushing Bay, later to become his namesake. As a result of all his efforts, LaGuardia's psychological effect on New York City was nothing short of profound, restoring faith in city government by demanding excellence from civil servants.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Bode").

      [Berlin], 6. IV. 1916.. 2¾ SS. auf Doppelblatt. Kl.-4to.. An einen Herrn Hauptmann: "Sehr vielen Dank für die freundliche Mitteilung, die uns die Hoffnung gibt, daß Sie schließlich doch zum Ziele kommen! Es scheint mir ganz richtig, daß Sie Sr. D[ur]chl[au]cht nicht gleich den ganzen Preis, den wir anlegen würden, gasagt haben, sondern sich noch eine kleine Reserve aufgespart haben. Wenn Sie bei weiterer Besprechung mit dem Fürsten es für aussichtsvoll halten sollten, zu einem raschen Abschluss zu kommen, so würde ich Ihnen soofrt Hrn. Direktor Demmler schicken können, der die Zahlung und Übernahme der Figur ev. gleich erledigen könnte [...]". - Wilhelm von Bode war seit 1883 Direktor der von ihm begründeten Skulpturensammlung, von 1890 an auch Direktor der Gemäldegalerie an den Kgl. Museen zu Berlin. "Durch umfassende Ankaufstätigkeit, Gründung neuer Abteilungen und Errichtung von Museumsneubauten (u. a. Dahlem, Pergamon-Museum) verschaffte Bode den Berliner Museen Weltniveau. Seine Schriften befaßten sich u. a. mit der italienischen und deutschen Renaissance ( Die Kunst der Frührenaissance in Italien', 1923) sowie der niederländischen Malerei des 17.Jahrhunderts" (DBE). - Auf Briefpapier mit gepr. Vignette der Kgl. Museen zu Berlin.

        A PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST AS A YOUNG MAN

      New York: B. W. Huebsch, 1916.. New York: B. W. Huebsch, 1916.. Medium blue cloth, lettered in gilt and blind. Top edge slightly dust darkened, trivial rubbing at crown and toe of spine, but a very near fine copy, in a fragment of the very scarce printed dust jacket. First edition. Although serialized in 25 installments in THE EGOIST from Feb. 1914 to Sept. 1915, British printers and publishers, then still reeling from the suppression of Lawrence's THE RAINBOW, were unreceptive in their responses to Joyce's efforts toward publication in book form. Based in part on Harriet Weaver's guarantee of 750 sets of sheets for the slightly later Egoist Press issue, Huebsch took on the novel for December publication. The size of the first printing may have been reasonably conservative, and a second printing was called for in April 1917. The printed dust jacket for this book is rather scarce; the present fragment consists of the rear flap (blank), the rear panel (an advert for the Huebsch edition of THE PRUSSIAN OFFICER - wanting two significant chips in the blank area), and a portion of the spine (with "AR / AS / YOUNG MAN / JOYCE / $1.50 net" intact). " ... the Portrait can be read as either an autobiography or a novel. A landmark in sensibility, the prose moves forward in complexity from the child's sensations at the beginning to the adolescent subtleties at the end" - Connolly. SLOCUM & CAHOON A11. CONNOLLY MODERN MOVEMENT 26.

        The Masses / November, 1916

      New York: The Masses Publishing Company, 1916. New York: The Masses Publishing Company, 1916 New York: The Masses Publishing Company, 1916. The November, 1916 issue (Volume IX, Number 1, whole number 65). Large Folio, illustrated stapled wraps, 24 pp. Front cover is separated, lacking rear cover; hence just Good. However, otherwise, this copy is Very Good, showing only toning and small chipping at the separated front cover (see scan), and moderate internal toning, faint stain; a strong report for an example of the very inexpensively-produced budget-of-the-heart icon The Masses was. See scans. Certainly one of the most seminal socio-political American publications of the last 200 years, The Masses was a collection of ideological art, opinion and reporting - usually contributed with little or no compensation - which strongly represented socialist / marxist values, but in a larger sense was representative of labor, women's rights, and radical left issues in general as those were at that time. Famous names of the era often contributed work, but the names of the regulars are themselves all now in history books. The now-timeless publication was shut down by the U.S. Government in 1918 on the basis of postal regulations, after two intense and ideologically-charged trials. Eastman and his sister, Crystal, then started The Liberator to carry on; after The Liberator closed its doors in 1926, The New Masses, under the primary leadership of Mike Gold, carried the radical flag. The Masses, as the first, is also the rarest. Text contributors to this issue of November, 1916 included Eastman, John Reed, Helen Marot, Seymour Barnard, Mary Heaton Vorse, Elsie Clews Parsons, Louis Untermeyer, Floyd Dell, Upton Sinclair, and Cuthbert Wright. Art was contributed by Hugo Gellert, Arthur B. Davies, Art Young, Maurice Becker, and K.R. Chamberlain, with Gellert (who would later frequently contribute to The Liberator) handling the enigmatic front cover piece. Check out all of these names. An extraordinarily rare piece of American publishing and political history. Please see scans. l-lng2
