      Nrf, 1919. - Nrf, Paris 1919, 13x19cm, broché sous chemise - étui. - Edizione su carta corrente, nonostante una terza edizione di menzione. autografo prezioso firmato da Marcel Proust a Rene Boylesve. La nostra copia viene presentato in un lembo fondina - shirt kaki demiu Marocco, spina dorsale piatta leggermente diluito con piatti di carta indicazioni bibliofili d'oro coda in marmo all'interno di mandorle carta verde. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale sur papier courant en dépit d'une mention de troisième édition. Précieux envoi autographe signé de Marcel Proust à René Boylesve. Notre exemplaire est présenté dans une chemise - étui à rabats en demiu maroquin kaki, dos lisse très légèrement éclairci avec indications bibliophiliques dorées en queue, plats de papier marbré, intérieur de papier vert amande. Mouillure angulaire très pâle affectant les premiers feuillets. René Boylesve découvre l'œuvre de Marcel Proust en 1913, à l'occasion de la parution du premier volume de la Recherche. D'abord dérouté par l'écriture proustienne, il se montre bientôt dithyrambique : « Notre œuvre, à nous, est ruinée par celle - là. Nous avons travaillé en vain. Proust supprime la littérature des cinquante dernières années. » (cité par GERARD - GAILLY Émile, « Note liminaire », dans BOYLESVE René, PROUST Marcel, Quelques échanges et témoignages, 1931, p. 24). Quant à Proust, l'admiration à l'égard de son aîné évoquée dans notre envoi n'est pas feinte ; ainsi quelques mois avant sa mort louait - il les romans de Boylesve, célébrant non seulement un « art en apparence si simple et qui dit tout » mais aussi « un perfectionnement suprême de technique » (PROUST Marcel, Correspondance, t.XX et XXI, 1991, p. 332 et 778). Les deux hommes n'étaient pas proches mais correspondirent à partir de 1917. En faisant parvenir à Boylesve un exemplaire de ses Pastiches et mélanges, Proust dut le ravir : quand il n'écrivait pas, Boylesve était bibliophile. Ainsi, à propos d'un autre de ses ouvrages, Proust eut cette délicate attention : « J'avais une hésitation en ce qui concerne votre exemplaire. D'habitude, ceux qui sont tirés pour moi sans marque d'édition, sont un peu mieux que les "originales". Cette fois - ci, le "mieux" ne m'apparaît pas ; et comme je suis incapable de distinguer le "pur fil" du reste, je ne sais pas, des deux sortes d'exemplaires, ce qui est préférable. [...] Vous seriez mille fois gentil de me dire ce que vous voulez. C'est parce que je vous sais bibliophile que vous écris à propos d'un livre de moi, chose de peu d'importance [...]. » (PROUST Marcel, op. cit., t.XXII, p. 156 - 157) Provenance : Bibliothèque Heilbronn (ex - libris).

        Still from the Movie "Yamata"

      1919 - Original, vintage, black and white, sepia photograph. 140 177 mm. Original still from Alexander (Sándor) Korda's 1919 silent drama film "Yamata". Showing Ila Lóth as Ninette and Gábor Rajnay as Yamata on the street, under an ornamented iron gate. The film intended to be a support for the short lived Hungarian Soviet Republic through its story about Yamata the slave, who is mistreated by his master and taken under the wings by a young aristocrat who uses him in more subtle ways and even implicated in a murder. Finally, after Yamata rebels, he got killed. Korda's commitment to the communists, and the apparent political content of "Yamata" and his other movie "Ave Caesar", led to his arrest following the fall of the Soviet régime and after the release the emigration to Vienna and finally to London. The film has not been preserved and we could not find any stills or memorabilia related to the movie, which gives particular value to this photo. [Bibl: Waldman, H.: Missing reels. Lost Films of American and European Cinema. Jefferson, N.C.: McFarland, 2000. p. 140.; Drazin, Ch.: Korda. Britain's Movie Mogul. London: I. B. Tauris, 2011. p. 36.]. Damaged at lower right edge, and lower left corner. Dated and signed by unknown hand at lower right corner. Captioned on verso in pencil. Traces of glue for mounting on verso.

        The Economic Consequences of the Peace

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited,, 1919. Octavo. Original blue cloth, gilt lettered spine. Spine toned, a little wear and a few nicks to extremities of spine, a few pale stains on back cover, book block bumped at top fore-corner. First edition, first impression, title page stamped "Presentation Copy". With the ownership inscription of "Sydney Waterlow" on the front free endpaper; this is the diplomat Sir Sydney Waterlow (1878-1944), a fellow-member of the Bloomsbury Group, with Keynes, in 1913. This is an apposite provenance: Waterlow was Acting First Secretary at the Foreign Office and was a member of the British delegation at the Paris Peace Conference; there are a good number of passages marked with a marginal line (in pencil or ink) and notes across the verso of the final leaf and recto of the rear free endpaper. Keynes was also present at Paris, as principal representative of the British Treasury, and resigned from his position in protest at the heavy reparations demanded from Germany. The Economic Consequences of the Peace, Keynes's second book, was written directly afterwards as a condemnation of Allied policy. It established his reputation as a political economist.

His works are in many museum and private collections, including the Oakland Museum and the Whitney Museum in New York. He died in 1997.

        South.

      London: William Heinemann,, 1919. The Story of Shackleton's Last Expedition 1914?1917. Octavo. Original dark blue cloth, titles to spine and front board in silver, large block of Endurance stuck in the ice to front board in silver, publisher's device to rear board in blind, top edge blue. Colour frontispiece and 87 half-tone plates, folding map at the rear. Bookseller's ticket to front pastedown. Pencilled ownership inscription to front free endpaper. Cloth a little rubbed, spot of wear to foot of rear hinge, pencilled annotations to rear endpapers. An excellent copy. First edition, second impression, a month after the first and printed on superior paper stock, so less prone to the heavy browning which tends to mar the first impression. "The failure of Shackleton's Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition to even reach the Antarctic continent, much less to cross it via the South Pole, has become the great polar success story of the twentieth century" (Books on Ice). Shackleton embarked in 1914 on the Endurance to make the first traverse of the Antarctic continent; a journey of some 1800 miles from sea to sea. But 1915 turned into an unusually icy year in Antarctica; after drifting trapped in the ice for nine months, the Endurance was crushed in the ice on October 27. "Shackleton now showed his supreme qualities of leadership. With five companions he made a voyage of 800 miles in a 22-foot boat through some of the stormiest seas in the world, crossed the unknown lofty interior of South Georgia, and reached a Norwegian whaling station on the north coast. After three attempts. Shackleton succeeded (30 August 1916) in rescuing the rest of the Endurance party and bringing them to South America" (DNB). Amazingly, all members of the Endurance party survived the ordeal, attributing their survival to Shackleton's exceptional leadership qualities. In recent years, this factor has led to the re-interpretation of the book in terms of a leadership and man-management manual, and several influential attempts have been made to distil from the narrative the underlying principles of Shackleton's command in order that they might be applied more widely. As Apsley Cherry-Garrard remarked in Worst Journey in the World; "For a joint scientific and geographical piece of organization, give me Scott; for a Winter Journey, Wilson; for a dash to the Pole and nothing else, Amundsen; and if I am in the devil of a hole and want to get out of it, give me Shackleton every time."

        Broome Special Phonograph Records.

      Medford, MA: George W. Broome, , [c.1919]. Original ten-inch 78 rpm record of African-American violinist Clarence Cameron White. Original shellac 10-inch disc, with original pale green paper sleeve. Disc with general surface scratches and marks, peripheral even toning to sleeve. The record label established in 1919 by George W. Broome at 23 Clayton Avenue, Medford, Massachusetts, is the first known black-owned record label, and predates Harry Pace's Black Swan label (established in Harlem in 1921) by at least eighteen months. "One of the more exciting recent developments in the study of early black recordings is the discovery of the first black-owned and operated record label. That label was long assumed to be Black Swan Records, founded in 1921 by Harry H. Pace, the publishing partner of W. C. Handy, which made its name in the field of jazz and blues. Nearly two years earlier, however, a black entrepreneur in Medford, Massachusetts, launched a label dedicated to black concert music, which he sold by mail. Fewer than a dozen sides were issued, but what remarkable records they were! Broome was founded by a man who devoted much of his career to the advancement of black culture. Information about the life of George Wellington Broome is sketchy. He was born in Brooklyn, New York, most likely on April 8, 1868... After a few years trying to get a foothold in New York's competitive theatrical world, Broome moved his family to Medford, Massachusetts, where his occupation was variously listed as porter, labourer and waiter... He apparently worked in some capacity for the government, while continuing to dabble in various theatrical and educational enterprises. In 1910 the New York Age reported that he had formed the Broome Exhibition Company to produce documentary films of black colleges... Immediately after World War I the patent monopoly of the two biggest record makers - Victor and Columbia - began to break down. Independent labels were entering the field and daring to produce lateral-cut records, playable on all phonographs, in defiance of the majors' patent... The first Broome recording sessions appear to have taken place in New York during the summer or early fall of 1919... Broome wanted to promote black concert artists, and he used his connections in the field to line up some impressive talent. Moreover his artists had not recorded elsewhere because of the prejudice of the white companies against black classical artists. Broome had the field virtually to himself. Broome's first issued recording was a real coup. The eminent composer and baritone Harry T. Burleigh, one of the leading figures in the black musical world, agreed to record for his old friend... Other artists recorded by Broome were sopranos Florence Cole-Talbert and Antionette Garnes, violinist/composer Clarence Cameron White, and pianist/composer R. Nathaniel Dett, the latter two playing their own compositions... George W. Broome died in Medford on April 1, 1941... Broome Special Phonograph Records were for years forgotten, unknown even to specialists in recording history. Only recently has information about the label come to light..." (Tim Brooks, Lost Sounds: Blacks and the Birth of the Recording Industry, 1890-1919, 2005, chapter 32). At least three variations of Broome's label are known to exists: a brown label with black and brown type - which he marketed as the "Brown Seal Record" - another with black lettering (as here) and a white label with blue type. A testament to the rarity of Broome recordings is that when Sutton and Nauck were compiling the enormous database CD that accompanied their American Labels and Companies (Denver, 2000), the only illustration they were able to locate was the much more common "pasteover" of a recording that Booker T. Washington originally made for Columbia. Broome's label was short-lived and it is believed that it closed down around 1923. The present recording was only the third to be released, preceded by Harry T. Burleigh's rendition of "Go Down Moses" and Florence Cole-Talbert's recording of "Villanelle" (a vocal showpiece by Dell'Acqua). The artist recorded here is the African-American violinist and composer Clarence Cameron White (1880-1960), performing his own composition "Cradle Song". He studied at Oberlin Conservatory (1896-1901) and had private instruction with, amongst others, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, before going on to hold various distinguished teaching positions. "White conceptualized the National Association of Negro Music Teachers, 1916, which later evolved into the National Association of Negro Musicians" (Encyclopaedia of the Harlem Renaissance, volume 2, p. 1249). A remarkable and rare survival from the infancy of African-American musical recording; to quote once again from Tim Lott's Lost Sounds: "Due to their unusual content, [Broome's recordings] are extremely important sound documents and deserve to be preserved and reissued".

The only ones I can suggest at present are Mr. Griffith Brewer, 33 Chancery Lane, London, England, or Mrs. Charlotte Reeve Conover, of Dayton. Mr. Brewer was a close personal friend of Wilbur's; Mrs. Conover is a woman of unusual literary ability. Sincerely yours, Orville Wright."

        South. The story of Shackleton's Last Expedition 1914-1927

      London: William Heinemann, 1919. First edition. Frontispiece, 87 photographic images on 45 plates and a large colored folding map. xxii, 376 pp. 8vo. A fine copy in original blue pictorial cloth, silver blocked image of the Endurance to upper board and silvered title to spine, bookplate of Nora Kilmorey to front pastedown, errata slip tipped in to p1. First edition. Frontispiece, 87 photographic images on 45 plates and a large colored folding map. xxii, 376 pp. 8vo. A classic from the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration. Having watched Amundsen claim the Pole for Norway in 1911, Shackleton reckoned there was a final great expedition to be undertaken, a crossing of the continent. The Endurance departed on schedule on 8 August 1914. On the face of things, the expedition was a disaster. Shackleton not only failed to cross the continent, he didn't reach the Pole. In fact, he didn't even reach the mainland. Instead, the party watched helplessly as their ship was crushed by the ice. It was here that Shackleton "showed his supreme qualities of leadership. With five companions he made a voyage of 800 miles in a 22-foot boat through some of the stormiest seas in the world, crossed the unknown lofty interior of South Georgia, and reached a Norwegian whaling station on the north coast. After three attempts Shackleton succeeded (30 August 1916) in rescuing the rest of the Endurance party and bringing them to South America" (ODNB). Not a single man was lost. Owing to paper shortages at the close of the First World War, this first edition was printed on poor quality paper and is thus browned as usual. Conrad p. 224; Rosove 308 A1; Spence 1107; Taurus 105

        Mr Standfast

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1919., 1919. FIRST EDITION. 8vo. Pp 412. Publisher's clean, bright mid-blue cloth, titled and ruled in dark blue. Minor edge spotting and some spots of sunning to front board, a very good copy indeed. In bright pictorial wrapper, with rubbing to extremities, some creasing and chipping to edges,a couple of closed tears some inoffensive soiling to the rear panel. Internally clean, ink ownership stamp to front flyleaf (there is very faded evidence of the same name stamp on the front panel of the wrapper, scarcely to be seen). Now a very scarce book in original dustwrapper. An attractive copy of the third Richard Hannay adventure (following The Thirty Nine Steps and Greenmantle), this installment taking place among the highlands of Scotland, Switzerland, possibly the first literary face-off on an underground platform, and finally winding up in the delightful environs of the Western Front for its spy hunting climax. Hannay's third show also throws in some beastly submarine skullduggery, the war in the air and a spot of love interest in the trim form of Miss Lamington, soon we surmise to become Mrs. Hannay. For a writer of 'shockers' Buchan is at times crisp and terse and at others rather sentimental, especially in his depictions of fighting men adrift in the ugliness of war. There's also lashings of positively rigid upper lips, and that splendid (now rather unfashionable) bit of Late Colonial Zen; the uncluttered conviction that the very least a chap can do when faced with evil is go down swinging. Buchan's famous adventurer was one of the fore-runners to James Bond; [author Ian Fleming] "was certainly influenced by no-nonsense British fictional characters such as Richard Hannay" [Gilbert, p.616]. Blanchard A46. See also Haining; Crime Fiction p193-4.

        Bay: A Book of Poems

      Westminster: The Beaumont Press, 1919 Illustrated with hand colored woodcuts by Anne Estelle Rice. First edition, limited issue of 200 numbered copies, this being one of 50 copies printed on cartridge paper. Publisher's green cloth and yellow patterned boards, lettered in gilt. About fine, corners very lightly bumped, former owner's bookplate to the front pastedown, fresh interior. A beautiful copy. Roberts A12.b. An exceedingly rare publication, Bay was first published in several short print runs. This first edition is one of 200 copies, and only 50 copies, like this copy, are printed on cartridge paper with hand colored illustrations. According to the publisher, roughly 25 of the 50 cartridge paper copies were not sold due to an accident, lowering the total number of obtainable copies of Bay to 175 (63 of which are housed in institutional libraries' special collections) and making these copies the scarcest of the three variants. The remaining 150 copies are comprised of 120 copies printed on handmade paper (A12.a) and 30 printed on Japanese vellum and signed by the author and illustrator (A12.c). Bay is a collection of eighteen of Lawrence's poems, including "The Little Town at Evening," "After the Opera," "Bombardment," "Bread Upon the Waters," "Tommies in the Train," "War-Baby," and "Nostalgia," among others. As Roberts explains in his bibliography, these poems "comprise the greater part of Lawrence's literary reaction to the war." Notably, Bay was the first of Lawrence's books to be "issued in an expensive format from a private press," a practice he would continue with many of his subsequent works.. Illus. by Rice, Anne Estelle. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Fine.

        Caffe Concerto alfabeto a sorpresa

      Milan: Edizioni futuriste di "Poesia", , [1919?]. Octavo. Original pictorial wrapper, stapled as issued. Illustrated throughout. Very light general toning to periphery of wrappers, small portion torn from margin of one leaf. An excellent copy. First edition, decidedly scarce: Copac locates only copies of the Italian 1970s reprint in British and Irish institutional libraries, and apparently not in OCLC. Francesco Cangiullo (1884-1977), writer, poet and painter, met Marinetti in 1910 and participated in the Esposizione Libera Futurista Internazionale in Rome in 1914. This is his best-known work and is a wonderful example of Futurist playfulness: "drawn in 1915 but published four years later, Cangiullo whimsically depicts a lively evening at the variety theater in his hometown of Naples in which the dancers, singers, acrobats, and comedians are composed of letters, numbers, and mathematical signs" (MoMA online). .

        En Ny Bilderbok. Rim och Bilder (Ein neues Bilderbuch. Reime und Bilder) (A New Picture Book. Rhyme and Pictures)

      Stockholm: Albert Bonniers Forlag, 1919. First Swedish Edition. Cloth-backed Pictorial Cover. Good to Very Good/Good to Very Good. [Seidmann-Freud, Tom (Marta Gertrud)]. 4to. Complete. Sound binding; hinges pulling at the binding staples. Clean pages. Toned endpapers; front with a chip and closed tear. Ding to the top of the front board and a corresponding tear on the rear board. The dust jacket has a faint dampstain, minor soiling, and chips at the spine ends and top of front panel. The Swedish edition of Ein Neu Bilderbuch. Although uncredited, the book was illustrated by Sigmund Freud's niece. Tom Freud was named Marta Gertrud at birth but assumed but a masculine first name as a teenager in hope that it would open doors in the art world. Tom became part of the avant-garde community in Berlin and was a member of the city's academic, artistic, and Zionist circles. In 1921, she married a journalist Jakop (Yankel) Seidmann and a year later gave birth to a daughter they named Angela. At about the same time the couple became friends with the poet Chaim Nachman Bialik and partnered with him to establish a publishing firm, Ophir, to produce Hebrew children's books. While Tom's book illustrations (usually folk-art style ink outlines filled in with watercolor) received critical praise, the firm never became financially successful, and in 1924 Bialik left Germany for Tel Aviv without completing several agreed upon books and refusing to reimburse the Siedmann-Freud's for his share of the partnership's liabilities. Ophir struggled on for several years before completely collapsing in 1929, leaving the Seidmann-Freuds destitute. Utterly ruined financially, Jakob committed suicide, and Tom became near catatonic. She was institutionalized and despite treatment from her famous uncle, Tom never recovered. She refused to eat and died of starvation (some say a drug overdose) the next year, after which Angela was adopted by an aunt. When the Nazis came to power in the 1930s, Tom's illustrated books were declared to be Entartete Kunst (Degenerate Art), and almost all copies were destroyed.
