      EGYPT NORTH AFRICA SUEZ ISMAILIA 1919 - On offer are two super, original, handwritten notebooks by what appears to be an unidentified British Army Officer who states that he has lived in the Near East for 4 years and was on leave in 1919.One gets the impression the officer intended write a book and lecture on the subjects contained: Book 1 deals with Egyptian occult practices and amulets in great detail. The author of this manuscript affects a very skeptical tone, overtly Christian, and may be writing as a counterpoint to Sir Ernest Alfred Wallis Budge who wrote extensively on Egyptian occult amulets and who translated the Egyptian Book Of The Dead which helped increase the public appetite for the subject. Skeptical he may be but clearly he is fascinated by the occult beliefs of the mass of the people he has met in his travels. The text covers: evil spirits - ginns, amulets - ornamental, charms - paper, tin, lead, wood, magic powders, plants, curses, the healing cup, the black magic trembling cup, good and bad angels, six pages on the evil eye and cures, rabies, beads, etc., etc. The second book is the text to accompany a slide show: "Up the Nile to Assouan and a glimpse of Abu Simbel". 100 pages with an index, no slides, but very erudite. This is not tourist stuff but scientific discourse. The books are in very good condition and measure 9" x 7" and 44 and 100 pages respectively. Handwriting is very clear. Overall G+. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall

Quarto (11 7/8 x 9 1/8 in; 302 x 233 mm). 145, [3] pp. with decorative borders. Twenty-seven mounted color plates with wide decorative borders, and captioned tissue guards. Title-page features Dulac's elaborate yellow border design of flowing vines, scrolls, extending spikes; the limitation page features a Dulac-designed decorative frame enclosing the limitation statement. Both designs are exclusive to this edition.Publisher's original printed blue wrappers with black lettering and decorative pale gray panel and lozenge. A fine copy.Contains four color plates not found in the English edition of 1914: Une lettre d'amour, etc.; La princesse Badroulboudour; Il se plaisait a converser avec les femmes; La Princesse Bouquet de Perles. These plates were previously published in various other Dulac illustrated books under different captions."In some of the pictures for this book Dulac continues with the Chinese style developed for Princess Badoura the year before. In others, he reduces the scale and adds a richness of detail to create an effect similar to that seen in Persian and Indian miniature art. The pictures are generally serious but Dulac's ever-present humor creeps in.And always there is the Oriental inspiration" (Hughey)."Mr. Dulac has provided pictures which preserve to a marvel the Persian feeling" (Times Literary Supplement, Dec. 10, 1914)."It may have been his friendship with the celebrated connoisseurs, Ricketts and Shannon, that led Dulac to a renewed and closer acquaintance with those Oriental and Greek primitives, which he had already learned to love in his youth.Persian miniatures especially have fascinated him.the fantasies which Scheherazade wove.need a jeweled commentator, and Dulac alone possesses the necessary gifts" (Art critic, Martin Birnbaum, Introduction, Catalog of Dulac exhibition, Scott & Fowles Gallery, NY, December 1916).Hughey 35h.

Floral and foliate borders in yellow surround the text and plates, referencing Eastern illuminated manuscripts. According to White, the "bright, enamel-like" colors of Persian miniatures influenced Dulac's color palette for this book, which includes bold tangerine and carmine red. Many of Dulac's illustrations also have a rich, Far-Eastern sensibility: the plates for the story of Aladdin evoke Chinese and Japanese brush paintings. This handsome edition contains four more plates than the English edition. Slightest chipping to spine ends, else a very fine copy in the original blue printed wrappers.

        NOS LOISIRS. REVUE LITTERAIRE MODERNE. Three Original Pen & Ink Daragnes Illustrations. Nouvelle série. N° 3, Paris: 15/08/1919.

      Nos Loisir, Paris 1919 - [Daragnès, Jean-Gabriel] NOS LOISIRS. REVUE LITTERAIRE MODERNE. Three Original Pen & Ink Daragnes Illustrations. Nouvelle série. N° 3, Paris: 15/08/1919. 4to.,/ in-4, pp. 66 à 96. Broché/wrappers. Illustrated/illustrée. Numéro de cette revue contenant la nouvelle "La Poste ensorcelé" de Charles Wadsworth Camp [p81-88]. Cette nouvelle traduit de l'englais par Charles Torquet est illustreé de 6 dessins dans le texte par jean-Gabriel Daragnès. This issue/exemplaire contenant 3 dessins originaux rehaussés à l'encre de Daragnès qui ont servi a l'illustration. Formats 23.5 cm x 13 cm; 10 cm x 15.15 cm; 13 cm x 19 cm. Charles W. Camp [1879 -1936] journalist et auteur dramatique américain s'est specialisé dans la description des cheminots et était un ancien employé du Canadian Pacific Railway. Rares dessins originaux à l'encre datant du début de la carrière de Daragnès. Jean-Gabriel Daragnès (1886-1950) était un peintre, un éditeur et un illustrateur de livres, et notamment d'ouvrages que l'on désigne désormais communément sous le vocable d'illustrés modernes. Au premier chef de ses réalisations, figurent entre autres une édition remarquée de Suzanne et le Pacifique de Jean Giraudoux, ou encore Les Ballades de la Geôle de Reading d'Oscar Wilde (gravures "à la manière noire", 1917). Bien d'autres ouvrages illustrent sa carrière. Il a collaboré, en tant que directeur artistique, à la maison d'édition Emile-Paul Frères, qui lui doit nombre de ses plus belles réussites. Il a été peintre de la Marine de 1933 jusqu'en 1942. A rare find with 3 original Daragnès works, each an apparent preliminary drawing used in Nos Loisirs. The comparisons are interesting as they reflect on the artist's working methodology; the final illustration slightly revised for publication. Nos Loisir in fine condition in the original glassine. The original Daragnes illustration in near fine condition - one small tear, neatly repaired. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

      Zurich: Rascher & Cie., 1919 - Octavo. Original green wrappers printed in blue. Unopened; errata slip tipped in, lightly discolored at edges. First German edition. With the author's signed presentation inscription, "To Scofield Thayer with grateful regards James Joyce Zurich Switzerland 8.ix.919". Published in Switzerland at Joyce's own expense in an edition of 600 copies; the first of any of Joyce's works to be translated. A presentation copy, inscribed on the first leaf: To Scofield Thayer with grateful regards James Joyce Zurich Switzerland 8.ix.919. The "grateful regards" are for a $700 gift Thayer made earlier in the year to the Joyces. Thayer, the wealthy co-founding editor of the third and final incarnation of the Dial, was one of Joyce's most ardent supporters during the 1921 New York censorship trial over the serialization of Ulysses in the Little Review, during which he took the witness stand as a supporter. The translation into German is by Hannah von Mettal. Slocum and Cahoon D44. Ezra Pound offered what is perhaps the most illuminating assessment of Exiles, Joyce's only play. After reading the manuscript in September 1915, he wrote to Joyce: I have just finished the play. Having begun it (cliché) I could not (cliché) leave off until (cliché). Yes, it is interesting. It won't do for the stage. (No, it is unsuitable for the "Abbey," as mebbe ye might kno'aw fer yourself, Mr J'ice). It is exciting. But even read it takes very close concentration of attention. I don't believe an audience could follow it or take it in, even if some damd impracticable manager were to stage it. Not that I believe any manager would stage it in our chaste and castrated english speaking world. Roughly speaking, it takes about all the brains I've got to take in the thing, reading, and I suppose I've more intelligence than the normal theatre goer (god save us). I may be wrong, the actual people moving on stage might underline and emphasise the meaning and the changes of mood. Of course your play is emotional. It works up quite a whirl of emotion, and it has, undoubtedly, form. I don't think it is nearly as intense as "The Portrait," at least I don't feel it as much. My resultant impression is one of a tired head. It will form an interesting 1/4 volume when you bring out your collected works. When you are a recognized classic people will read it because you wrote it and be duly interested and duly instructed, but until then I'm hang'd if I see what's to be done with it (Pound/Joyce pp.45-7). Nevertheless, Pound promised "I will see that your play is read by the agent of one very practical American dramatic company, which does big business," and he convinced John Quinn to contact a New York theatrical agent whose name, to Joyce's delight, was L. Bloom (Carpenter p.278). After the publication of Exiles, Pound reviewed it for The Future: "Exiles," by James Joyce, is a play perhaps unstageable, but infinitely more worth staging than the inanities which the once active Stage Society now indulges in. We find the most brilliant of our novelists here trying the inferior form. As chamber drama, Mr. Joyce writes with all the talent he had as a novelist. He adds a sense of possible stage comedy in a scene furnished with a perfume sprayer. (The Future, November 1918, p.287). Exiles opened in New York on February 19, 1925 and ran for forty-one performances. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

      New York: McBride & Co., 1919.. Gilt cloth. Spine stamping a bit dull, a few small smudges to cloth, but a very good copy. First edition, first printing, of the author's chef d'oeuvre. The first printing consisted of fifteen hundred copies, according to Brussell. An attractive association copy, signed by the dedicatee, Burton Rascoe, and inscribed by Cabell over Rascoe's signature: "For John Stahl through the good offices of Burton Rascoe James Branch Cabell." It bears a further inscription in an early hand: "Here's How John Jan 5 Roy." The recipient, in all probability, was film director and producer, John M Stahl (1886 - 1950), part of the team in the organization of MGM, as well as a founding member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences.

        Some British Ballads

      , 1919 1919. first edition. First American Trade Edition in the Publishers Glassine and Color Pictorial BoxRACKHAM, Arthur. Some British Ballads. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. New York: Dodd Mead & Co. n.d. [1919]. First American trade edition. Quarto (10 x 7 1/2 inches; 254 x 190 mm.). Sixteen full color tipped-in plates and twenty-four black and white drawings. Publisher's dark blue cloth, covers and spine pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt. Gray pictorial endpapers. Some minor foxing to edges. A fine copy in the original (slightly worn) glassine and color pictorial box.The top of the box is lettered in black "Some British Ballads / Illustrated by Arthur Rackham / Publishers : Dodd, Mead & Company : New York" and has a copy of the color plate "O Waken, Waken Burd Isbel" (facing page 12) pasted-on.This is the only copy that I have ever seen with the original glassine and color pictorial box (DJB)."Several of the Ballads in this book are based on the great work of Francis James Child…" (Note)"Few of Mr Rackham's work have been more consistently impressed with charm and beauty than his illustrations in colour to Some British Ballads. In them he pictures a succession of fascinating heroines habited in quaint and picturesque costumes, amid surroundings which, though belonging to no definite place or period, are always appropriate and congruous. His heroes are hardly less charming than his heroines, and the scenes in which they are represented constitute a series of fascinating and delightful pictures ... one must feel grateful to Mr Rackham for giving us the prettiest picture book of the season" (The Connoisseur, Vol. LVI, 1920).“Never did old poems appear so gayly bedecked than Some British Ballads, which Arthur Rackham has gorgeously illustrated with 16 paintings… It is hard to decide which the more attractive feature of this book—Mr. Rackham’s paintings or the ballads themselves” (New York Times)."No more effective inspiration for the gifted brush of Arthur Rackham could be found than these popular old ballads. Handsomely printed and bound, this magnificent work should appeal to all" (The Atlantic Monthly, Dec. 1920).

        Who\'s Who\" revisions to FDR\'s biographical sketch made by FDR in his own hand in 1919, including the excising of one word <I>\"Democrat\"</I>

      Autograph Document [Note] Signed, \"Franklin D. Roosevelt\", Who\'s Who in America revision form, September 26, 1919, one page, 8.5\" x 11\". An update form from Who\'s Who in America from 1919, with the biography of FDR from a prior edition pasted on the form for revision purposes. FDR makes several updates and pens in some other accomplishments in his own hand, such as being \"in charge of inspection of U.S. naval forces in European waters, July-Sept. 1918 and of demobilization in Europe-Jan-Feb, 1919.\" Interestingly enough, FDR seems to overemphasize the significance of his executive duties vis-a-vis American demobilization in his 1919 Who\'s Who revision in his own hand. FDR also adds that he is an \"Overseer of Harvard\" (a position he held until 1924). Some inked editorial changes include excision of one word (\"Democrat\"- an interesting word to excise on a document of this type, given the fact that FDR would forever transform the Democratic Party in the United States) in FDR\'

The printed preface states that this document was created so that "members of the Force may be able to take home with them an acceptable account of the great advance in which they have played a part"; this is the true first edition of one of the earliest accounts of that campaign, its details being still "fresh in the memory", and constitutes, along with the reports in the Arab Bulletin and in the Times, Lawrence&#39;s first published accounts of the Arab campaign.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Starnberg, 3. X. 1919.. 2 SS. 4to.. An seinen Freund Theodor Kuh: "[...] Ich habe mich riesig über Dein Lebenszeichen gefreut. Gleichzeitig geht ein Pack Fotos an Dich ab. Darunter solche unserer Villa. Uns geht es allen glänzend. Ich schreibe mit allen vieren unaufführbare Filme, was sehr einträglich ist und nicht minder komisch, und dichte heimlich, bis das Papier, das der Teufel extra meinethalber abschaffen möchte, wieder billiger wird. Der Ochs merkt nämlich immer noch nicht, daß ich gescheiter bin als er. Auch das Entwerten des Goldes wird ihm nicht viel helfen, denn dann kann ich längst Gold machen. Ich rate Dir folgendes: such Dir mit feinem Instinkt selbst eine Wortübung aus den Psalmen aus - diese haben große verwandelnde Kraft; oder vielleicht einen Satz aus dem 'Vater unser'. Zu erwägen wäre, ob man den Psalm nicht hebräisch üben sollte. Die Wortübung höchstens 1 x im Tag und nicht zu lange (10-30 Minuten) doch desto conzentrierter, aber ja nicht krampfhaft. Die einzelnen Worte quasi aussaugen wie die Biene die Blüte. [...] brauchts nicht; sie dienen hauptsächlich, um das erforderliche richtige frische Wachsein beim Wortüben aufrecht zu erhalten. Ferner: Kauf Dir: Bo-Yin-Ra: 'Das Buch vom lebendigen Gott' [...] Ferner: zu genauestem Studium: Mary Baker Eddy's Wissenschaft und Gesundheit (Christian Science) zu beziehen durch David Salomon, Berlin Halensees [...] Ich weiss, warum ich gerade Dir die Christian Science als quasi nochmaliges Fundament empfehle. Ich rate Dir, setze Dich mit meinem alten Freund Posch, Fremdenführer beim Portier im Blauen Stern in Verbindung und lass Dir, als ob Du gänzlicher Laie wärst, von ihm über Christian Science erzählen etc. Stör Dich nicht an seinem eselhaften Getue; er hat trotzdem die Sache simpel und gradlinig genau erfasst. Lernen: wenn Du Dich vor physischen Misslichkeiten bewahren willst, so halte Dich von Sexuellem möglichst fern, auch in Gedanken. Auf dieses höchst einfache Geheimnis kommt man leider immer recht spät. Und doch stehts im Paulus klar darin. Ich wittere, es kommen höchst bedeutsame Zeiten. Manchmal scheint mir, wir kämen nach Osten (Sibirien) um ein ganz neues Zukunftsleben einzu-fädeln. Ich glaube weiter fest: die Stunde kommt mit Riesenschritten, wo die Prager sagen werden über mich: schade, den hätten wir doch fast gekreuzigt. Ich habe aber zum Glück kein Talent zum Märtyrer. Hier geht es passabel aufwärts. Deutschland scheint sich von der überstandenen Nibelungentreue allmälig zu erholen. Aber, ich glaube, der alten Zopf wird nirgends mehr geflochten werden [...]" - Briefe Meyrinks mit okkultem Inhalt sind sehr selten.

        Coppertop: The Queer Adventures of a Quaint Child

      Melbourne Publishing Company, Melbourne 1919 - Octavo, colour frontispiece and six colour plates; front endpaper damaged by removal of early owner's inscription, slight spotting, but a very good copy in the original boards with oval colour portrait onlay; the unusual dustjacket (cut to show the portrait on the front board) with some foxing, but in good condition. With the unusual dustjacket. First edition, with beautiful colour plates by the author. Gaze was one of the most prolific authors of books for children in this period, and this fantasy about the adventures of a small girl in a world where she meets people such as the Clerk of the Weather and the South Wind is one of his most popular works. Coppertop, and its sequel Coppertop Cruises (1920), were marvellous vehicles for Gaze's fine, opalescent-hued watercolours. The plates in these, and his other Australian-published works, 'established him as the most original illustrator of children's books after Ida Rentoul Outhwaite' (Holden, A Golden Age: Visions of Fantasy, p. 82).
