JOYCE, JAMES.
First Edition. FIRST EDITION OF JOYCE'S CLASSIC FIRST NOVEL. "No one could overestimate the effects of [the book] on later Irish writers ... Or on the national psyche: many young Irishmen came to painful consciousness reading those corrosive pages. The Dublin of my student days was strewn with versions of Stephen Dedalus, including myself... Little failed saints. We knew eternity too early" (John Montague). "Joyce's novel remains vital, in contrast to almost all other novels published in 1916, because he forcefully strived toward an idiosyncratic form of expression, a language intrinsic to the story he wanted to tell, about the young protagonist, Stephen Dedalus, and his formative years in Dublin, in which uniqueness was the very point and the question of what constitutes the individual was the issue posed" (New York Times). Note: This New York first edition by Huebsch is the true first edition, appearing a month before the English issue (from the New York sheets). New York: B. W. Huebsch, 1916. Octavo, original cloth. Mild toning (as often) and a little wear to spine, a touch of rubbing to spine ends; minor browning to endpapers with ghost of early tape stubs. A very good copy in original cloth. Very Good.

1916. Hi, Here we have a rare 1916 Original Hardback Wisden, in Very Good Condition. The 21st Wisden Hardback and the most expensive of the 20th Century. The rarest or second rarest since 1900. I have been agornising over which of two 1916s to keep as they are both in such amazing condition but to sum up this Wisden is as nice as the one I own in my master set. The lettering is always an issue (if you like shiny gold leaf) on 1916s , i guess they were rationed on the gold leaf in 1916, however the front board has very good gilt for a 1916. The spine is faded and no dot after the year which is correct. Small name to first page corner. The boards are very good , small line mark to the corner at the top of the front board but other than that , nice clean boards. Inside the hinges are very good, both are springy! Amazingly clean inside including the yellow pastedowns. Minimal foxing. No restoration. A lovely book. Rare,

YEATS, W. B.
London: Macmillan and Co., Limited. 1916 - Octavo. Original decoratively gilt blue cloth designed by Sturge Moore, front and spine lettered in gilt, edges uncut. Housed in a dark blue quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Gilt rather dull, notably at the spine. Very good. Cover design by T. Sturge Moore First edition, first impression, a canonical presentation copy, inscribed by the author in the month of publication, "Ezra Pound from W. B. Yeats Oct 1916". Below this on the front free endpaper is Pound's ownership blindstamp, giving his address at 5 Holland Place Chambers, Kensington W. Pound and Yeats lived and worked together in close quarters in Sussex over the course of three winters (1913–1916). Yeats told his father: "Ezra Pound and his wife are staying with me, we have four rooms of a cottage on the edge of a heath and our back is to the woods". They collaborated on a number of works, including Yeats's first volume of autobiography, Reveries, Pound taking dictation from the senior poet and typing the finished product for the printer. The inscription here dates from the last months of their close association: Yeats also presented him a copy of the first English edition of Reveries at the same time. Pound, as a sort of secretary, had a huge shaping influence over Yeats's prosody, pushing him to modernise his voice. Responsibilities is indeed the collection through which Yeats's poetry moved out of the mists of the Celtic twilight and into the harsher, harder light of the Modern movement. Pound's influence was central to this, and he may well be sai … [Click Below for Full Description]

GRAVES, Robert.
London: Chiswick Press, [1916]. Octavo, pp. 20. Original plain red wrappers. Wrappers a little creased and faded to edges, a few faint spots to contents. An excellent copy. First edition, first impression, presentation copy, inscribed by Graves's father on behalf of the author to Henry Newbolt (1862–1938), the English poet and writer, on the title page: "Sir Henry Newbolt, from his admirer the author, via his father Alfred Perceval Graves. March 9th, 1917. Captain, 3rd Batt., Royal Welch Fusiliers". This copy, sent at the behest of a shell-shocked Robert Graves to Henry Newbolt, best known then, and infamous now, for his patriotic "Vitaï Lampada" poem of the 1890s comparing warfare to a game of cricket, with its much-satirised refrain "Play up! Play up! and play the game!", is particularly poignant. At the time of publication, February 1917, Graves was recuperating from bronchitis, first at Somerville College, Oxford, and then at Harlech, where he wrote to Sassoon, who had helped him edit and distribute the book, on 26 March 1917: "Dear old Sassons, please forgive my not writing: it has been one of the worst symptoms of my late collapse that I haven't been able to make up my mind to start or finish the most pressing things, and the correspondence about Goliath and David has been most exacting". Perhaps as a consequence of his weakened state, presentation copies from Graves himself are rare. Two hundred copies of this early privately printed work, the author's second publication, were produced in late 1916 and distributed early in 1917.

s.l. : s.n., [1916]. Poem printed recto of sheet of glossy white card, 140 x 90 mm, title in bold, verso with contemporary handwritten message: 'What do you think of this. I got it on the Boat as we were coming over, the good old Orsova. I hope we get back as safe'; the card with some toning and creasing, but entirely legible on both sides. A completely unrecorded poem, penned by Australian soldier Private Roy Maurice James, 2197, on board HMAT A67Orsova during its voyage to France in 1916. The message verso suggests that the poem was printed on board the Orsova. Records show that Private James, an unmarried labourer, was 28 years old when he enlisted for service in the A.I.F. on the 8th May, 1916. He was assigned to the 59th Infantry Battalion, 4th Reinforcement, which was made up entirely of men from Melbourne and rural Victoria, and embarked with his unit at Melbourne on 1st August, 1916. The 59th Battalion, which had been raised in Egypt early in 1916, had arrived in France in June, 1916. On joining his battalion at the Western Front, Private James would have been posted to the front line. The 59th Battalion was heavily involved in two of the most famous Australian actions of the Great War: Polygon Wood (Ypres) in September, 1917 andVillers-Bretonneux in March-April, 1918. Private James was killed at Villers-Bretonneuxon 30th March. His body lies in an unmarked grave, a fact which makes his simple, sentimental poem all the more poignant: 'From that sportive City Melbourne, Australia's famous Town, Sailed the Orient's "Orsova", that boat of some renown. Upon this massive … [Click Below for Full Description]

Richard Weiner (Vincenc Benes illus)
Prague: Frantisek Borovy 1916 - Octavo, wrappers, 154 (iv)pp. The first edition of this work, with six ink drawings by Vincenc Beneš. The most widely read and appreciated of Weiner’s expressionist collections, this work was written shortly after the author’s convalescence from a nervous breakdown he suffered at the front. The illustrations of Vincenc Beneš (1883-1979) are strong statements of the cubo-expressionist style he employed at that time. Beneš was an important figure during the Czech cubist period.

YEATS, W. B.
London: Macmillan and Co., Limited., 1916. Octavo. Original decoratively gilt blue cloth designed by Sturge Moore, front and spine lettered in gilt, edges uncut. Housed in a dark blue quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Cover design by T. Sturge Moore Gilt rather dull, notably at the spine. Very good. First edition, first impression, a canonical presentation copy, inscribed by the author in the month of publication, "Ezra Pound from W. B. Yeats Oct 1916". Below this on the front free endpaper is Pound's ownership blindstamp, giving his address at 5 Holland Place Chambers, Kensington W. Pound and Yeats lived and worked together in close quarters in Sussex over the course of three winters (1913–1916). Yeats told his father: "Ezra Pound and his wife are staying with me, we have four rooms of a cottage on the edge of a heath and our back is to the woods". They collaborated on a number of works, including Yeats's first volume of autobiography, Reveries, Pound taking dictation from the senior poet and typing the finished product for the printer. The inscription here dates from the last months of their close association: Yeats also presented him a copy of the first English edition of Reveries at the same time. Pound, as a sort of secretary, had a huge shaping influence over Yeats's prosody, pushing him to modernise his voice. Responsibilities is indeed the collection through which Yeats's poetry moved out of the mists of the Celtic twilight and into the harsher, harder light of the Modern movement. Pound's influence was central to this, and he may well be said to … [Click Below for Full Description]
