        Locked Out" in The Forge, Number Two.

      Philadelphia Colonial Press February, 1917 - Square octavo. 52, (2)pp. Contains the first appearance of "Locked Out," which had only previously seen print in The Bouquet, a magazine compiled by Frost's children in 1914. This poem was not included in the first edition of Mountain Interval but was added to its contents for the 1930 Collected Poems (see Crane, A14). Little is known about The Forge; based on the "Editorial Flourish" that introduces this number, its editor presents a rather unusual take on its mission: The Forge, he says, "has no purpose and is beyond price," adding later that it is also "not dependent on subscribers or contributors." Given this particular stance, however potentially ironic, it would suggest that this magazine did not enjoy a long life. In 1950, Frost sent a copy of this issue to librarian and editor Edward Connery Lathem at Dartmouth with the suggestion that it be added to the collection of Frost that Lathem was building there. Frost closes a letter that he enclosed with that copy by noting "It's a rarety (sic) I think. One of the editors sent it to me lately." This is a very fine copy, likely untouched by the mail or a subscriber's hands. (Crane A14). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        THE MESSIAH OF THE CYLINDER

      Chicago: A. C. McClurg & Co.,. 1917. Octavo, pp. [1-10] 1-319 [320-322: blank] [note: last leaf is a blank], eleven inserted plates, several double page, with black and white illustrations by Joseph Clement Coll,. original green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold.. Previous owner's signature on front free endpaper. A brilliant, fine. copy with clean and bright binding in fine pictorial dust jacket. (with Coll illustration on front panel) with touch of rubbing to. corners, mild shelf wear to spine ends, and some overall dust soiling. to spine and rear panels. Nice copies of this book are uncommon and. it is scarce in jacket. (#132313). First edition. Protagonist awakens in a grim world of the future dominated by socialism and science and learns that legend has made him a kind of messiah. He leads a successful revolt against the establishment. The story, first published in EVERYBODY'S MAGAZINE as a four-part serial, June- September 1917, is one of the earliest American dystopian novels. "A more considerable work than is generally recognized, despite the pulp adventure aspects. One can find among the author's ultraconservative values such Orwellian anticipations as omnipresent slogans, euphemistic terms for horrible institutions, the artificial language Spikisi, the mechanics of thought control, and the apparatus of the police state. While the book is a deutero-WHEN THE SLEEPER WAKES, it is independent in detail, and much Rousseau's best work." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1922.

Tall octavo (9 1/2 x 7 3/8 in; 243 x 186 mm). xi, [1], 250, [1], [1, blank] pp. Twelve color plates tipped-in on grey stock with captions, forty-three black and white drawings. Bound ca. 1960 by Bayntun of Bath (stamp-signed) in full blue calf with double-ruled borders, decorated compartments with central gilt vignette. Spine labels in brown and tan morocco. Gilt dentelles. Cockerell endpapers. Top edge gilt. A few plates with faint crease at corner, otherwise a fine copy." it was during these years that he illustrated a new Brothers Grimm title, Little Brother and Little Sister which is in effect one of his crowning achievements. In these twelve colour plates we find the most astonishing versatility of style, and an exquisite pitch of execution. The style ranges from the delicate to the virtual burlesque caricature. On the one hand is an example of pre-Raphaelite, infinitely tender portrayals of womanhood, such as 'The True Sweetheart', or the delicate realism of Maid Maleen and her waiting woman escaping from the terrible tower of her father. Yet within the same book we find the classic Rackhamerie of the gnome with his beard caught in the cleft of the semi-anthropomorphized tree, appealing to Rose-red and Snow-white for help and the Hassell-like custard-pie of the three soldiers and the long nose. This is one of the few books illustrated by Rackham from which it would be possible to select any single-colour picture in order to demonstrate Rackham's art at its finest." (Gettings. Arthur Rackham, pp. 116-117).Lattimore and Haskell, p. 46. Riall, p. 129. [Attributes: First Edition]

English cats that do not look like Louis Wain cats are ashamed of themselves” (H.G. Wells).“From 1883, Wain began to draw cats as they had never been drawn before, cats in humorous guises, in human situations, but always beautifully handled…although he was sometimes forced to draw dogs before he became well-known!” (Houfe, The Dictionary of British Book Illustrators and Caricaturists 1800-1914).Dale, 103.
