        La Boite ê Joujoux. Ballet pour Enfants par André Helle. Musique de Claude Debussy

      Paris: Durand & Fils, [c. 1919] - First edition of this thoroughly delightful yet fragile book, reproducing the children's ballet which debuted in 1919 with sets and costumes designed by Hellé, the great children's illustrator (Debussy had composed the music in 1913). The story - what else but of love and war? - takes place in a toy-box, toy-boxes being, as Hellé has it "really just like towns in which toys live like people - or maybe towns are really just toy- boxes in which people live like toys . " Hellé's ingenious illustrations have all the irresistible charm of childhood, and the book is a delight. It was issued in two bindings: wrappers, at 12 francs, boards, as here, at 15 france. Both are very scarce (HELLE, ANDRÉ) First edition. 10 x 13 inches. Hand-colored title page + 4 preliminary leaves with hand-colored illustrations, 5 divisional titles hand-lettered and illustrated in color, and 13 full-page color pochoir plates, after Andre Helle. Original cream boards as issued, lettered by hand, in the original glassine. Loose in binding, flyleaves detached and chipping, but the text itself and the boards are very good [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        [Small Archive]: United Mine Workers of America Commission Signed by John L. Lewis to W.A. "Tony" Boyle, future president of the UMWA and convicted murderer of Joseph Yablonski, with related material

      A small archive of documents pertaining to the organized labor career of W.A. Boyle. One of America's great power-brokers during his long life, John L. Lewis became acting president of The United Mine Workers of America in 1919. He finally retired in 1960 and was succeeded by Thomas Anderson, himself quite elderly and in failing health. When Anderson died three years later William Anthony Boyle took over the UMWA. "Tough Tony" Boyle consolidated the powers of the union president and was involved in widespread corruption. In 1969 Pennsylvania union leader Joseph Yablonski created a credible challenge to Boyle but ultimately lost, and was murdered with his wife and daughter a few days after the election. Boyle was convicted of ordering the murder and died in prison in 1985. Hollywood revisited the crime in the 1986 HBO film Act of Vengeance with Wilford Brimley portraying Boyle and Charles Bronson as Yablonski. Further details available upon request. .

        Wineburg, Ohio

      New York:: B.W. Huebsch,, 1919. . A Near Fine copy rebound in mustard leather binding with marbled endpapers. This short story cycle is considered one of the seminal high spots of modern American literature. It is structured around the life of protagonist George Willard, from the time he was a child to his growing independence and ultimate abandonment of Winesburg as a young man. It is set in the fictional town of Winesburg, Ohio which is based loosely on the author's childhood memories of Clyde, Ohio. The stories were "...conceived as complementary parts of a whole, centered in the background of a single community." The book consists of twenty-two stories, with the first story, "The Book of the Grotesque", serving as an introduction. Each of the stories shares a specific character's past and present struggle to overcome the loneliness and isolation that seems to permeate the town. Stylistically, because of its emphasis on the psychological insights of characters over plot, and plain-spoken prose, Winesburg, Ohio is known as one of the earliest works of Modernist literature. Winesburg, Ohio has served as a representative early example of the modern short story cycle in American letters. Comparisons between Winesburg, Ohio and Jean Toomer's Cane (1923), Ernest Hemingway's In Our Time (1925), William Faulkner's Go Down Moses (1942), and several of John Steinbeck's works, among others, demonstrate the pervasiveness of the formal innovations made in Anderson's book.& & & .

        "Dagon" In: THE VAGRANT

      N.p. [Athol, Massachusetts]: W. Paul Cook,. November 1919 (number 11). original tan wrappers, printed in black.. Text block a bit tanned (as is usually the case), a fine copy. Rare.. (#108477). The first printing of this major early Lovecraft story, which W. Paul Cook considered to be Lovecraft's first mature weird tale (See Cook, In Memoriam Howard Phillips Lovecraft [1942], pp. 60-3). In 1917, prompted by Cook and other amateurs who had been impressed by two youthful efforts, "The Beast in the Cave" (written 1905; published in THE VAGRANT, June 1918) and "The Alchemist" (written 1908; published in THE UNITED AMATEUR, November 1916), Lovecraft wrote "The Tomb" and "Dagon." "Both 'The Tomb' and 'Dagon' are... the nuclei of other and still better tales by Lovecraft: the former is the ultimate origin of 'The Case of Charles Dexter Ward' (1927), and the latter was writ large in 'The Call of Cthulhu' (1926) and 'The Shadow Over Innsmouth' (1931)." - Joshi, H. P. Lovecraft: A Life, p. 159. Also present is Cook's critical article "Howard P. Lovecraft's Fiction," and the third part of "Twenty Years' Recollections of Amateur Journalism (Written in 1913)" by Arthur Henry Goodenough. Joshi I-B-i-13 and p. 414.

Some modest handsoiling to the binding, tasteful collector's bookplate, otherwise very good or better in custom slipcase with labels. First printing in this format, illustrated with seven full-sheet original etchings, plus a title-page vignette and decorative initial, by Sepp Frank. From a total edition of one hundred numbered copies, this is one of ninety on paper, signed by the artist on the colophon. The text is that established by Wilhelm von Kaufmann. A rather early example of Frank's work as a book illustrator, which has been eclipsed somewhat by his fame as a bookplate artist.

      Paris: François Bernouard, 1919 Rare first edition. Thin 4to., unpaginated [24] + printed stiff card covers. 1 of only 104 numbered copies [4 on Japon & 100 on Arches]. This copy lettered "G" & signed by Derain although no lettered copies are indicated which might account for a possible 26 additional copies printed].

Vlaminck's satirical 'poeme' about "life" has 4 chapter headings in French: Spring, Summer, Autumn & Winter - Derain's "Fauve" sketches illustrate the chapters & are typical of his heavier lines - bold & thickly rendered. A fine example of Fauvism in spirit & illustration. A movement said to have begun in June 1909 when Vlaminck first met Andre Derain at Chatou resulting in the formation of the school of Chatou & ultimately the birth of Fauve art - joined formatively by the likes of; Matisse, Gaugin, Van Dongen, Camoin, Dufy, Marquet & others. The important collaboration between Derain & de Vlaminck was not a solitary happening as their association & friendship lasted a lifetime resulting in many important works. "Quand c'est le printemps et qu'on n'a pas d'argent ça a moins d'importance qu'a quarante ans On court après la blonde on prend la brun on a vingt ans aux prunes.. 1st Edition.
