        Allegria di naufragi

      Vallecchi, 1919. In - 8° (195x138mm), pp. 245, (8) di catalogo editoriale. Bell'esemplare in barbe (leggeri aloni del tempo alla brossura). Edizione originale di una delle più celebri raccolte poetiche del Novecento italiano, raggruppante le poesie ungarettiane del periodo della Prima Guerra Mondiale, avvio dell'Ermetismo nella nostra lirica. La raccolta ingloba la precedente silloge de Il Porto Sepolto, edita nel 1916 in un'impressione di poche copie. "È l'esperienza della guerra che guida a precoce maturazione il poeta e gli indica la via maestra della sua ricerca. Innanzi tutto egli opera un profondo rinnovamento delle strutture formali della nostra poesia per una strada tutta personale, che tiene modesto conto delle esperienze futuriste o crepuscolari. Egli ritorna, per rispondere a questa esigenza, allo strumento stilistico piu' vecchio del mondo: alla paratassi, alla costruzione sintattica che fa perno sul verbo centro inverante ogni atto umano, allo stile rotto, alla suggestione del non detto, al "diario" alfine assunto come unico valido strumento di rappresentazione anche della stessa problematica storica. Nell'apparente fratta sintassi dell'"Allegria"... il senso di tutto il fare ungarettiano si configura, grazie alla forza del verbo, come un continuo affanno di autenticità, di verità palpate dolorosamente nella loro rugosità esistenziale e nella loro presenza metafisica... e a un tempo nel loro recupero a un'ardente avventura di poesia" (Andrea Zanzotto in Branca, 1986, IV, p. 358). Spaducci, p. 297. Gambetti / Vezzosi, p. 934: "Comprende, con varianti, 32 poesie di Il Porto Sepolto, le 17 di La Guerre, 12 apparse in "Lacerba", 1915, 8 in "La Riviera Ligure", 1917, 7 in "La Raccolta", 1918, 15 in Antologia della Diana, Napoli, Libreria della Diana, 1918, e 12 inedite".

        The Economic Consequences of the Peace

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited,, 1919. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine gilt. Spine slightly faded, some light spotting to rear endleaves. An excellent copy. First edition, first impression, of Keynes's second book, which established his reputation as a political economist. Keynes resigned from his position as principal representative of the British Treasury at the Paris Peace Conference of 1919, in protest of the heavy reparations demanded from Germany. The Economic Consequences of the Peace was written directly afterwards as a condemnation of Allied policy: Keynes would continue arguing against the reparations in his 1922 book, A Revision of the Treaty.

        The Equinox, Vol. III, No. 1. 'The Blue Equinox'.

      Universal Publishing Company, Detroit, Michigan 1919 - Hardcover. Quarto. 308 + 132pp. (+ viii pp adverts.) Original blue buckram with red eye in triangle design on front board, red titling etc. to front board and spine. Color frontis portrait of Crowley by Leon Engers Kennedy, and color reproduction of Crowley's painting May Morn, with original captioned tissue guards plus 5 black and white plates. Rubricated title page. This copy from the library of Mildred Burlingame (1913-1981) Soror Interlucere or 894 of the O.T.O, member of Agape Lodge and second wife of Ray Burlingame (1893-1965), with her ownership name and her address in pencil on the front pastedown. Crowley was the editor and principal author of most of the "The Equinox" series, which contained a variety of poetry, fiction, and reviews - generally with esoteric themes - alongside a number of articles of occult instruction. The "Blue Equinox" - as this number became known - was arguably the last of the "real" Equinoxes to be published during Crowley's lifetime. He continued to use the volume and number designations of the Equinox series, but for what were effectively separate monographs, quite different in most respects to the original journals. This volume includes five black and white photographic portraits, as well as color reproductions of Crowley's painting "May Morn" and the color portrait of him by Leon Engers Kennedy. The text comprises a number of magical books ("Libers") amongst which Liber LXV, Crowley's Gnostic Catholic Mass, the publication of which caused considerable outcry, and calls for the "Blue Equinox" to be banned, as well as providing inspiration to James Branch Cabell who adapted part of it for use in his equally-contentious, but best-selling novel, "Jurgen." Blavatsky's "The Voice of Silence" with Crowley's commentary to it are appended as a "special supplement" and other texts include Crowley's "Hymn to Pan," various book reviews, etc. etc. Cloth dulled and rubbed, particularly at spine, which has a long vertical crease. Some fraying at head and tail of spine, cloth hinges, and occasionally at edges of boards. Some discoloration - possibly paint offset - to front board. Light tanning to the pages as always. Internally a clean, tight copy, all plates present and complete with their original printed tissue guards. Cover wear as noted, otherwise VG or better condition (no dust jacket issued) and with an unusual association to Crowley's American followers. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      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".

When you were here you asked me to suggest the names of persons who might be able to prepare such a biography of Wilbur. 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."
