        A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

      London: Egoist Press,, 1917. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to upper board in blind and to spine gilt. Housed in a dark green quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Contents browned, spine cocked and severely sunned. Very good. So-called second edition; the first edition to be printed in the UK. This edition was preceded by the English issue of the Huebsch edition of 1916. With the author's signed presentation inscription to the half title page, "To George and Mary Slocombe James Joyce Paris 7. i . 926"; George Slocombe was an English journalist writing for the American papers. He also wrote a book called The Heart of France - Parisian, provincial & peasant, etc (1934). He reviewed Ulysses when it came out, and he is listed by Joyce as one of the select recipients of a press copy. Joyce's inscription usually appears on the front free endpaper; in this copy, however, that space is occupied by the inscription of the book's first owner, Allan Ross Macdougall, an American in Paris, friend and later biographer of Isadora Duncan. Presentation copies of this printing are rare and examples with such interesting Parisian provenance are exceptional in all regards.

La première avait paru 5 ans plus tôt en 1912. L'ouvrage est précédé d'un portrait de l'auteur par Max Oppenheimer. Ce texte, paru en pleine période d'avant-garde européenne, fut considéré comme une des inventions littéraires les plus prometteuses de son temps : "Dédié à André Gide dont Einstein admirait l'ouvrage Paludes, rare exemple à ses yeux de "prose absolue", [Bebuquin], écrit en 1906-1909, réparti en dix-neuf courts chapitres et ironiquement qualifié de roman, défia à son époque les lois de l'écriture comme les cubistes défiaient alors celles de la peinture." (L. Meffre, "Carl Einstein, 1885-1940", p. 96) Bon exemplaire portant l'ex-libris de Marcel Bekus et portant un envoi anonyme "à mon chez Florent"

        Yoshiwara keisei shin-bijin awase jihitsu kagami = Yoshiwara Courtesans: A New Mirror Comparing the Calligraphy of Beauties

      Tokyo: Custom Emaki Image Publishing Society; Jichuan Hong Wen, 1917. Original. Hardcover Accordion Fold. Fair. The color scroll image, while separated cleanly between the 8th/9th panels, is in Good/VG- condition with excellent color, and unmarked pages. Panels 9/10 (back-to-back) have a small tear/chip at upper outer corner, not affecting the image at all. Light age toning to page edges. Front cover is detaching, and paper covering the board is soiled and worn. Back cover is detached, and the paper detached from the board but present and chipped/soiled/torn. Ex-lib. sticker on lower front cover; bookplate inside back cover; presentation note (not from author/artist) in pencil on publication page.. Green paper/boards. Front cover has illustration and Japanese calligraphy. Accordion fold. Four pp. opening text (calligraphy), followed by 15 panels containing one continuous image, beautifully colored, of Japanese "beauties." 3 pp. text at end, followed by publication information. In spite of its condition, a beautiful continuous scroll of Japanese courtesans from Yoshiwara, the oldest/largest "red light" district in Tokyo. Prostitutes, courtesans, and Geishas all lived in the district, although with strict divisions among them. The women are portrayed in beautiful, colorful kimonos playing instruments, writing, serving tea, reading scrolls, doing art work, and more. Each panel contains faint calligraphic script in grey print, with red stamps/marks. The entire panel would look stunning when framed, thus showing its beauty in entirety. The artist is Kitao Masanobu (pseudonym for Santo Kyoden), a famous writer and artist of the Edo period. A scarce find.

      Jena, Gustav Fischer, 1888-1917. - Quart. Zeitgenössisches, goldgeprägtes Halbleder mit marmorierten Bezügen, Vorsätzen und Schnitt. Vollständiges Exemplar mit allen Kunstdruckbeilagen (siehe jedoch den Hinweis zur Kollation im untenstehenden Kommentar). Die Einbände an den Kanten gering berieben, insgesamt von hervorragender Erhaltung. Erste Ausgabe der maßgeblichen Bestandsaufnahme thüringischer Bau- und Kunstdenkmäler. Erschien über einen Zeitraum von dreißig Jahren verteilt auf insgesamt 41 Lieferungen, welche wiederum in sieben, den historisch gewachsenen oder modernen Verwaltungseinheiten entsprechenden Abteilungen angeordnet wuden: I. Großherzogtum Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach, II. Herzogtum Sachsen-Meiningen, III. Herzogtum Sachsen-Altenburg, IV. Herzogtum Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha, V. Fürstentum Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt, VI. Fürstentum Reuss Älterer Linie, VII. Fürstentum Reuss Jüngerer Linie. – Da die einzelnen Lieferungen des Werkes nicht chronologisch ihrer planmäßigen Nummerierung entsprechend erschienen, sondern jeweils erst in teils weit auseinanderliegenden Jahren abgeschlossen wurden, sind vollständige Exemplare selbst einzelner der genannten Abteilungen schwer auffindbar. Geschlossene, vollständige und einheitlich gebundene Exemplare der gesamten Reihe wie hier vorliegend sind eine Rarität. – Im Vergleich mit der Kollation der Einzellieferungen scheinen in den Vorstücken der sieben Abteilungen unseres Exemplares zunächst einige Seiten zu fehlen, jedoch ist dieser scheinbare Fehlbestand auf redundante, also wiederholt inkludierte (Gesamt-)register der Einzellieferungen zurückzuführen. Natürlich machte es für den Vorbesitzer keinen Sinn, diese mehrfach beizubinden. Das Werk kann daher guten Gewissens als komplett gelten. 25000 g

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1917 - 1917 Wisden Original Hardback

      1917. I was very tempted to give this 1917 original hardback 10 out of 10. A can t really find any fault with it. The front and rear boards and the spine are in absolutely immaculate condition. The gilt to the front board and the spine is extremely bright and completely unrestored. Front and rear yellow pages are in almost new condition. The hinges are extremelystrong and the book has an unopened feel to it. The contents are in as new condition. It would be very difficult to find a better copy - perhaps it should really be a 10! We hope to list over the next few weeks a number of fine pre-war publisher s hardbacks including issues for the 1890 s and the First World War and several years from the 1860 s and 1870 s all in fine condition. Please keep a look out for them.

      New York Charles Scribner’s Sons 1917 - First edition, consisting of only 1500 copies, far scarcer then the English issue. 8vo, publisher’s original brown cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine, with the scarce original dustjacket preserved. 357 pp. A fine copy of the book with just a bit of mild bumping to the corners, the scarce jacket is generally complete but with evidence of old repairs and some loss and separation, now protected wrap-over cover, and there is some light fading to some portions of the cloth where light shown through breaks in the dustjacket. VERY SCARCE IN DUSTJACKET. First Edition, consisting of only 1500 copies, of James’ posthumously published unfinished novel. James was writing the novel in 1914 but stopped work on it due to the outbreak of the war. With such a momentous event occurring, he felt that the novel no longer represented contemporary life. The novel is a brooding story of Gilded Age America. It centers on the riches earned by a pair of dying millionaires and ex-partners, Abel Gaw and Frank Betterman, and their possibly corrupting effect on the people around them.

        An Inquiry into the Nature of Peace and the Terms of its Perpetuation.

      New York: The Macmillan Company,, 1917. Octavo. Original dark green cloth, titles to spine gilt, double frames to boards in blind. Pencil underlining throughout. Spine slightly darkened, extremities a touch rubbed. An excellent copy. First edition, first printing of Veblen's treatise on peace, how it may be achieved and retained, as well as the possible effects of perpetual peace on society. Presentation copy inscribed by Veblen on the front free endpaper: "To Bror Julius Olsson Nordfeldt, Thorstein Veblen." Nordfeldt (1878?1955) was a Swedish-American artist who painted two portraits of Veblen, both now lost. Nordfeldt studied art in the U.S. and Europe. Between 1903 and 1907 he lived in Chicago, depicting Chicago landmarks and scenes, and it was most likely during this period that he also painted Veblen's likeness (Tilman, Thorstein Veblen, John Dewey, C. Wright Mills and the Generic Ends of Life, p.142).

        Cats at Play

      London: Blackie and Son Limited, 1917. Flying Fur, Caterwauling. and Cats on the Bandstand WAIN, Louis. Cats at Play. London: Blackie and Son Limited, n.d. [1917]. First edition. Folio (12 15/16 x 10 inches; 330 x 255 mm). Twelve pages with one to two captioned scenes in color, inner covers illustrated in black and white. Publisher's full color hand-sewn pictorial wrappers. Some creasing, wear and light chipping at edges and spine tail. A very good copy of a book that would normally have been destroyed by child. A particularly difficult Wain title to find in any condition. This is only the second copy of this book that we have seen in over 50 years… Interestingly the coloring is slightly different to the other copy that we have seen and the illustrations, whilst identical are bound in a slightly different order. At the end of the last century, Louis Wain (1860-1939), the Edwardian cat artist who went mad, became a household name as an illustrator of cats, whom he depicted in all sorts of activities, from skating and playing cricket to driving motor cars, attending dances, and playing musical instruments. "He invented a cat style, a cat society, a whole cat world. 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 34. Footnote: Not to be confused with another book of the same title [WAIN, Louis. RACKHAM, Arthur. SMITH, H. Officer. GLADWIN, May, et al. Cats At Play. London: John F. Shaw, n.d. [c. 1900-1904]. This edition is unrecorded and scarce, with no copies in institutional holdings worldwide, and not noted in the Wain or Rackham bibliographies. Small quarto (9 5/8 x 7 1/8 in; 245 x 180 mm). 160 pp., with advertising as endpapers. Illustrated throughout in black and white and color, with fifteen drawings by Louis Wain, and an unrecorded text drawing by Arthur Rackham (so initialed) on page 40. (see DB 02471).

        Mitteilungs-Blatt des Verbandes der sozialdemokratischen Wahlvereine Berlins und Umgegend. 12. Jahrgang, Nr. 1, 1. April 1917 bis Nr. 53, 31. März 1918.

      (Seywald 680). Um das Mitteilungsblatt herum formierte sich die innersozialdemokratische Opposition der Sozialdemokratischen Arbeitsgemeinschaft von Hugo Haase, Georg Ledebour und Wilhelm Dittmann, die sich an den Ostertagen 1917 im Thüringerischen Gotha zur Unabhängigen Sozialdemokratischen Partei Deutschlands (USPD) erklärte und fortan mit der sog. Mehrheitssozialdemokratie von Fr. Ebert, Ph. Scheidemann und Eduard David in Konkurrenz stand. In der Nr. 5 resümiert Karl Kautsky die Gründungskonferenz der USPD, in dem er sich gegen den Vorwurf der MSPD wendet, man habe die deutsche Sozialdemokratie gespalten: ?[...]. Was man als die Spaltung der deutschen Sozialdemokratie bezeichnet, das vollzog sich nicht in Gotha, das wurde vorher vollbracht, und zwar nicht von der Opposition. Ihr weitaus größter Teil hatte vielmehr stets energisch seinen Willen bekundet, in der Partei zu bleiben, in ihrem Rahmen den oppositionellen Kampf gegen die im Parteivorstand kulminierende Richtung zu führen. Es war diese Richtung, die, dank den Machtmitteln, über die sie unter dem Belagerungszustand verfügte, mit der Opposition dadurch fertig zu werden suchte, daß sie sie aus der Partei ausschloß. Will man das eine Spaltung nennen, dann wurde sie von der Mehrheit vollzogen.? Einband wellig und fleckig. Einzelne Nummern altersbedingt gebräunt, insgesamt guter Zustand dieses seltenen Jahrgangs des ?Mitteilungs-Blatts? der sich formierenden USPD. Einzelnummern zeitgenössisch eingebunden. Papier altersbedingt gebräunt. Einband stärker fleckig und gewölbt.
