        POEMS . WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY SIEGFRIED SASSOON

      Huebsch, New York 1919 - Gray paper boards, stamped in gilt and blind. Photogravure frontis portrait. Tissue guard opposite portrait tanned and mildly offset to title, otherwise fine in a good example of the scarce dust jacket with half-inch loss at toe of spine, an extended span of chips and a creased tear across an 8cm portion of the top edge of the rear panel, short splits and tiny chips at the toes of the flap folds, and six old external cellotape mends. With the bookplate of John Sparrow on the front pastedown. First edition, American issue, comprised of sheets of the British edition with a special title-leaf imported into the U.S. and bound here. The number of copies made up in this fashion does not seem to be recorded in the obvious references (Keynes, for example, ignores American editions or issues of Sassoon B items in his bibliography), but one might suspect something on the order of 500 to 750 copies. Whatever the case, the book is fragile, and fine copies in any semblance of the dust jacket are much less frequently encountered than even jacketed copies of the British issue. Our ascription of date is based on the publications listed on the rear panel of the jacket. MODERN MOVEMENT 36. KEYNES (SASSOON) B2 (ref). HAYWARD 337 (ref).

        THE CUTTING OF AN AGATE

      Macmillan and Co., London 1919 - Blue cloth, stamped in gilt after a design by T. Sturge Moore, edges rough-trimmed. Modest foxing to endleaves and edges, else near fine. First British edition, with additions to the text of the 1912 New York edition, but dropping the substantial essay, "Thoughts on Lady Gregory's Translations," pp.1-35, and refining the preface. Lady Gregory's copy, with her bookplate. Inscribed in the month of publication: "Lady Gregory from WB Yeats April 20. 1919." One of 1500 copies printed. Lady Gregory recorded the circumstances of her first meeting with Yeats, and the birth of a friendship central to modern Irish literary history in 'Our Irish Theatre': "On one of those days at Duras in 1898, Mr. Edward Martyn, my neighbour, came to see the Count (de Basterot), bringing with him Mr.Yeats, whom I did not then know very well, though I cared for his work very much and had already, through his directions, been gathering folk-lore. They had lunch with us, but it was a wet day, and we could not go out. After a while I thought the Count wanted to talk to Mr. Martyn alone; so I took Mr. Yeats to the office where the steward used to come to talk, less about business I think than of the Land War or the state of the country, or the last year's deaths and marriages from Kinvara to the headland of Aughanish. We sat there through that wet afternoon, and though I had never been at all interested in theatres, our talk turned on plays. Mr. Martyn had written two, The Heather Field and Maeve. They had been offered to London managers, and now he thought of trying to have them produced in Germany where there seemed to be more room for new drama than in England. I said it was a pity we had no Irish theatre where such plays could be given. Mr. Yeats said that had always been a dream of his, but he had of late thought it an impossible one, for it could not at first pay its way, and there was no money to be found for such a thing in Ireland. We went on talking about it, and things seemed to grow possible as we talked, and before the end of the afternoon we had made our plan. We said we would collect money, or rather ask to have a certain sum of money guaranteed. We would then take a Dublin theatre and give a performance of Mr. Martyn's Heather Field and one of Mr. Yeats's own plays, 'The Countess Cathleen'. I offered the first guarantee of £25." WADE 126.

        Zur Soziologie der Imperialismen [ First Edition - Signed by the author ]

      Sonderabdruck aus "Archiv für Sozialwissenschaft und Socialpolitik" Band 46 Heft 1 und 2, 1 brochure in-8, Verlag von J. C. B. Mohr (Paul Siebeck), Tübingen, 1919, 76 pp. Edition originale. Exceptionnel exemplaire du tiré-à-part, enrichi d'un envoi autographe non signé de Joseph Schumpeter au Dr.Bousquet, Amitiés de l'Auteur". Etat moyen (couverture abîmée et débrochée, annotations de Georges-Henri Bousquet). Dans cette étude, Schumpeter pose une définition liminaire, en refusant de considérer comme impérialisme la disposition agressive d'un Etat en vue de la poursuite d'intérêts concrets, mais en entendant par là la disposition, sans objet précis, d'un Etat à l'expansion violente sans qu'aucune limite puisse être assignée à cette expansion (Cf Perroux, La Pensée économique de Joseph Schumpeter, 23). Il y étudie un certain nombre de cas historiques historiques concrets, puis dans un dernier et fort long paragraphe, il traite de la question "Capitalisme et Impérialisme". Le dédicataire, qui devient plus tard professeur d'Université à Alger et Bordeaux, Georges-Henri Bousquet (1900-1978), était juriste de formation initiale (docteur en droit en 1923 avec une thèse sur "L'évolution sociale en Hollande 1914-1922"). Mais il reste surtout connu comme un économiste proche de Pareto (son maître en sociologie) et de Schumpeter, ainsi que comme un islamisant de l'école de Goldziher et Snouck-Hugronje. On peut signaler que le Professeur Bousquet est l'un des rares économistes français contemporains à être plusieurs fois cité dans la monumentale Histoire de l'Analyse Economique écrite par Joseph Schumpeter à la fin de sa vie. Les deux hommes se connaissaient personnellement depuis une première rencontre à Vienne en septembre 1923. A cette époque, G.-H. Bousquet fut présenté à Joseph Schumpeter, à Vienne, par Paul Lazarsfeld. Comme Bousquet le raconte lui-même : "A ce moment, Schumpeter avait 40 ans. Il était alors totalement ignoré en France, mais connu aux Etats-Unis où il avait été invité à professer quelque temps, et en Angleterre, où il avait eu également l'occasion de se faire entendre". Les deux hommes, qui deviendront amis, se rencontreront beaucoup plus longuement en 1933-1934 à Harvard, où Schumpeter sera devenu professeur. Georges Bousquet y effectuera en effet un long séjour de recherche, financé par la fondation Rockfeller. Toute sa carrière, Georges Bousquet sera fasciné par l'oeuvre de Schumpeter, qu'il fera notamment découvrir, tant par ses articles que par les discussions, à l'économiste François Perroux. Allemand

        Full Speed Ahead. Tales from the Log of a Correspondent with Our Navy. [Inscribed Association copy from Henry B. Beston to Admiral William Sowden Sims - with original typescript in an envelope that is tipped into the pastedown / It is a typescript of a letter that was written during Beston's time as editor at the magazine „The Living Age" (an offshoot of ‚Atlantic Monthly') and stunningly also reflects on Beston's classmate, Theodore Roosevelt, whom he obviously gave a copy of this book and according to Beston's letter to Sims, Theodore Roosevelt and his children confirming that they enjoyed it. The letter reveals that Beston sends this book as a „thank you" to Admiral Sims for his time as war correspondent under Sims' command during World War I. The typescript of the letter must be seen as an extension to Beston's Preface in the book in which he writes: „And no acknowledgment, no matter how studied or courtly, its phrasing, can express what I owe to Admiral Sims for the friendliness of my reception, for his care that i be shown all the Navy's activities, and for his constant and kindly effort to advance my work in every possible way."

      First Edition. New York, Doubleday, 1919. Octavo. XIII, 254 pages. Original Hardcover in protective Mylar. Very good + condition with only minor signs of external wear. Signed and inscribed by Henry B. Beston with a letter typescript to Admiral William Sowden Sims. The inscription reads: „To Admiral Sims with every grateful good wish of the author - Henry Beston Sheahan - 1919". Henry Beston (June 1, 1888 - April 15, 1968) was an American writer and naturalist, best known as the author of The Outermost House, written in 1928. Born Henry Beston Sheahan in Boston, he grew up in Quincy, Massachusetts with his parents, Dr. Joseph Sheahan and Marie Louise (Maurice) Beston Sheahan, and brother George. Beston attended Adams Academy in Quincy before earning his B.A. (1909) and M.A. (1911) from Harvard College. After leaving Harvard, Beston took up teaching at the University of Lyon. In 1914 he returned to Harvard as an English department assistant. Beston joined the French army in 1915 and served as an ambulance driver. His service in le Bois le Pretre and at the Battle of Verdun was described in his first book, A Volunteer Poilu. In 1918, Beston became a press representative for the U.S. Navy. Highlights from this period include being the only American correspondent to travel with the British Grand Fleet and to be aboard an American destroyer during combat engagement and sinking. His second book of journalistic work, Full Speed Ahead, described these experiences. (Wikipedia).

        Sonnica. [Signed]

      New York, Duffield & Co. 1919 - First English - language edition. Octavo. 331 pages. Illustrated Hardcover. Near fine in publisher's illustrated boards with slight bumping to lower spine and light foxing to top of the pages. Signed by Ibañez on the titlepage. Vicente Blasco Ibáñez (29 January 1867 – 28 January 1928) was a journalist, politician and best-selling Spanish novelist in various genres whose most widespread and lasting fame in the English-speaking world is from Hollywood films adapted from his works. He was born in Valencia. At university, he studied law and graduated in 1888 but never went into practice. He was more interested in politics, journalism, literature and women. He was a particular fan of Miguel de Cervantes. In politics he was a militant Republican partisan in his youth and founded a newspaper, El Pueblo (translated as The People) in his hometown. The newspaper aroused so much controversy that it was taken to court many times. In 1896, he was arrested and sentenced to a few months in prison. He made many enemies and was shot and almost killed in one dispute. The bullet was caught in the clasp of his belt. He had several stormy love affairs. He volunteered as the proofreader for the novel Noli Me Tangere, in which the Filipino patriot José Rizal expressed his contempt of the Spanish colonization of the Philippines. He travelled to Argentina in 1909 where two new cities, Nueva Valencia and Cervantes, were created. He gave conferences on historical events and Spanish literature. Tired and disgusted with government failures and inaction, Vicente Blasco Ibáñez moved to Paris at the beginning of World War I. When living in Paris, Ibáñez had been introduced to the poet and writer Robert W. Service by their mutual publisher Fisher Unwin, who asked Robert W. Service to act as an interpreter in the deal of a contract concerning Ibáñez. He was a supporter of the Allies in World War I. He died in Menton, France in 1928, the day before his 61st birthday, in the residence of Fontana Rosa (also named the House of Writers, dedicated to Miguel de Cervantes, Charles Dickens and Honoré de Balzac) that he built. His first published novel was "La araña negra" ('The Black Spider') in 1892, an immature work that he later repudiated – a study of the connections between a noble Spanish family and the Jesuits throughout the 19th century. It seems to have been a vehicle for him to express his anti-clerical views. In 1894, he published his first mature work, a novel called "Arroz y tartana" (Airs and Graces). The story is about a widow in late 19th century Valencia trying to keep up appearances in order to marry her daughters well. His next books consist of detailed studies of aspects of rural life in the farmlands of Valencia – the so-called huerta that the Moorish colonizers had created to grow crops such as rice, vegetables and oranges, with a carefully planned irrigation system in an otherwise arid landscape. The concern with depicting the details of this lifestyle qualifies Blasco Ibáñez as an example of Costumbrismo: Flor de mayo (1895) ('Mayflower') La barraca (novel) (es) (1898) ('The Hut') Entre naranjos (es) (1900) ('Between Orange Trees') Cañas y barro (es) (1902) ('Reeds and Mud') These works also show the influence of Naturalism which he would most likely have assimilated through reading Émile Zola. The characters in these works are determined by the interaction of heredity, environment and social conditions – race, milieu, et moment – and the novelist is acting as a kind of scientist, drawing out the influences that are acting upon them at any given moment. They are powerful works but are sometimes flawed by heavy-handed didactic elements. For example, in La Barraca, the narrator often preaches the need for these ignorant people to be better-educated. There is also a strong political element – he shows how destructive it is for these poor farm-workers to be fighting each other rather than uniting against their true oppressors – the Church and the la [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        [HOMEFRONT SCRAPBOOK COMPRISED OF ORIGINAL VERNACULAR PHOTOGRAPHS, TELEGRAMS, PROGRAMS, AND MORE, ASSEMBLED BY A YOUNG CALIFORNIA WOMAN FROM ITEMS SENT HOME BY HER "DOUGHBOY" HUSBAND SERVING IN FRANCE AND ITALY DURING WORLD WAR I]

      Various locations, including California, New York, France, and Italy, 1919. [54]pp. Oblong folio. Original black cloth photograph album. Overall very good. An interesting scrapbook organized chronologically by Mrs. Charles Stafford, wife to Lieut. Charles Stafford of the Aero Squad of the American Expeditionary Forces of the United States Army during World War I. The Staffords appear to reside in San Diego, and have a son named Jack at the time of the album's formation. The scrapbook is largely comprised of photographs, telegrams, letters, postcards, programs, menus, tickets, and more sent home by Lieut. Stafford from France and Italy during his service as an infantry soldier with the AEF. Stafford appears to have served in World War I throughout the entire course of time that the "doughboys" of the AEF spent in Europe. The scrapbook opens with several pages of photographs likely showing Stafford in training in California, followed by telegrams and photographs of him in New York before the first photograph and telegram from France appear, dated April and May, 1917, respectively. An approximate count of the various items mounted in the scrapbook amounts to the following: 150 original photographs, fourteen postcards, a handwritten note, seventeen telegrams, two menus, twelve programs, three greeting cards, and about a dozen printed documents, tickets, and other ephemeral items from Europe. Stafford inscribed two of the photographs to his wife and son, "Love from Papa." The great majority of the photographs show Stafford in uniform, often with other soldiers, and usually in the presence of military equipment, including motorcycles, tanks, cannons, and the like. The photographs also include several city and street views in France. A fantastic visual record of one doughboy's experience in Europe throughout the war, or at least the parts he felt comfortable enough to share with his wife.

        Two libri amicorum belonging to the Russian violinists Nikolai and Aleksandr Konstantinovich Bogdanov, containing numerous entries by the Russian composer and pianist brothers Anton and Nikolai Rubinstein, along with other representatives of the musical and dance world (Marius Petipa and Jules Perrot)

      Various places, 1919. Oblong small folios (10 × 7.5 cm). Contemporary gilt-ruled calf, one album in cloth slipcase with blind-embossed illustration and gilt initials A.B.. Approximately 86 autograph entries, 17 ink and pencil drawings, ten mounted printed images and silhouettes, and sixteen photographs. Bindings lightly rubbed and scuffed; one album rebacked; occasional light soil and fraying; one leaf loose; still about very good. Two libri amicorum, or Stammbücher, belonging to the brothers Nikolai and Aleksandr Konstantinovich Bogdanov. The liber amicorum was a form of autograph album extremely popular in the nineteenth century. Albums such as these contain signatures, verses, inscriptions, mementos, drawings and photographs from friends, family, guests, and famous people. As a whole, in addition to featuring inscriptions by numerous prominent individuals, the Bogdanov brothers' autograph albums are notable for reflecting a varied international musical and theatrical milieu of the second half of the nineteenth century. Little is known about the Bogdanov brothers themselves, but it appears they were musicians (violinists) who had occasion to meet a number of important cultural figures, including Anton and Nikolai Rubinstein, and the choreographers Jules Perrot and Marius Petipa. Many entries offer friendly greetings and compliments to the Bogdanovs and are accompanied by quotations, poetic verses, and small musical pieces, caprices and ditties. Photographs, drawings (particularly landscapes) and silhouette portraits are also included. The entries are in French, Russian and German and from locations including Paris, Moscow, Nizhnii Novgorod, Pregny near Geneva, Vienna, Berlin, Lausanne and Kiev, among others. Many are by musicians, choreographers, and composers, including violinist and composer Rudolf Slavik, choreographer Marius Petipa, Italian conductor Giulio Sarmiento, the choreographer Jules Perrot, the famous pianists and composers Anton and Nikolai Rubinstein (both of whom add musical entries), as well as F. M. Pupunat, A. Delcourt, Nicolas Babinsky, Maria Campagny, Racon, Sofie Raevsky, Stremouchoff, C. Bricon, G. A. Koella, Aline Bartelsen, Jean Mazuch, de Vallin, Barbe and Michel Kazarinoff, Vera Panteleeva, V. A. de Charrier, Ernest Schmidt, and others. Nikolai Bogdanov's autograph album begins in the 1840s and runs as late as 1919. It contains a delightful hand-drawn portrait of Anton Rubinstein, labeled "genius" (in Russian). His album also features an entry by Jules Perrot, the French dancer and ballet master, who worked in Europe and Russia, and is famous for creating a number of Romantic era ballets. It also features an autograph by Nikolai Rubinstein, dated 1 October 1848, accompanied by a musical entry (4 bars, marked allegro). Aleksandr Bogdanov's album contains more entries from individuals in the the music and theater worlds. It has a signature and musical entry (4 bars, marked moderato) from Anton Rubinstein, dated 1 October 1848, as well as the imperial calling card (in French and Russian) of choreographer Marius Petipa, upon which Petipa thanks Bogdanov for a card he had sent him. Marius Petipa was employed at the Russian Imperial Theater from 1847 until 1903, where he created what is thought of today as the classical ballet canon.

        A series of letters to art historian and biographer Auguste Bréal.

      Roquebrune, London, Nice, etc.: 1919–40 - Dorothy Bussy: 15 autograph letters (one incomplete), signed or initialled; 2 pages foolscap, 21 pages small quarto, 9 pages octavo. Simon Bussy: 28 autograph letters, signed or initialled; 4 pages quarto, 42 pages octavo, 5 pages duodecimo; his letters in French, but four letters with holograph postscripts added by DB in English. With an autograph letter signed, to Bréal from Lt. Colonel (Foreign Legion) Pechkoff - said to be son of Maxim Gorki (2 pages octavo. Meknes, 1937), extolling the book on Berthelot and affectionately reminiscing. Dorothy Bussy (née Strachey) had translated Bréal's book on Velazquez back in 1905 and the present letters have an easy intimacy throughout. In the first she introduces J. M. Keynes "(pronounced Canes) He is something of a swell an intimate friend of my brother Lytton's, Duncan Grant's chief patron, the headquarters in fact of all the Bloomsbury gang has the most erroneous ideas about the French. This is not unnatural as he understands very little of the language". Later she provides "a letter to Lady Colefax. She is very much laughed at for her lion-hunting proclivities, but all the same she catches them all [Berenson] is, when in a good temper, prodigiously interesting". Much of the rest is devoted to literary enthusiasms - for Goethe, Norman Douglas (his books if not his vices), Samuel Butler, Florio's versions of Montaigne (Gide's essay on whom she translates). Her highest praise is reserved for Moby Dick, "one of the few works of genius in the world", while "As for Colonel Lawrence, his works are too expensive for me to possess". She happily undertakes the translation of Bréal's life of Philippe Berthelot, and in the last letter present reports from London: "the Queen bought two of Duncan's pictures at a recent exhibition. Does this mean Duncan's art is deteriorating or H.M.'s taste improving?". Simon Bussy writes little of his own work nor of literary matters, beyond recommending A High Wind in Jamaica and some detailed comments on Bréal's Cheminements, but he provides useful glimpses of personalities, including Gide ("un vrai ami et bien different du Gide de la legende") and Somerset Maugham. He notes Matisse's desire to be simultaneously a member of the establishment and a revolutionary; reports Roger Fry's slightly mysterious death; Roger Martin du Gard's post-Nobel attempts at anonymity. In London they meet Georges Cattaui and go "boire un café arabe, chez lui, fait par un superbe Nubien". In France he notes Ottoline Morrell's travel needs: "eglises anciennes, des montagnes a pie, des ecrevisses et des gorges". [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      Newnes, 1919. 1st edition. Hardcover. Publisher's original red decorative boards with black lettering, very slightly marked, hinges strengthened with Japanese repair tissue, no foxing to the pages. The red pigment on the boards turns to salmon-pink after a while but, pleasingly, this copy has retained its original colour, and is thus very uncommon. The main significance of the book is that it marks the very first appearance of Jeeves and Wooster, in four of the eight short stories herein, and this edition is not to be confused with the later, thicker version. Nice copy of a fragile production.

The lettering (gilt) is bright and strong to both the front and the spine. The boards are excellent, the bok seems a bit warped but a heavy book on top should cure that , a bobbling line to the front cover to the right with a slight knock to the right of the front board. Inside the hinges are very good, very tightly bound. The yellow pastedowns are good, it looks like a bookplate has been removed from the first page, you need to look close but I would say it has been. HD Swan to the right yellow page.
