        The Song of Arthur,

      n.p. n.d., n.p. - Four volume typescript, approximately 8 inches by 10 inches. Individual original typewritten or carbon copy pages are bound with string into cloth and printed paper boards, with typewritten labels. Unpaginated; the four volumes are a little over 6 inches thick. Nearly every page has additions, corrections and strike-outs in either the author's hand, that of his daughter, or an unknown hand. Two copies of Fowler's 1919 forerunner work, 'Scenes from the Morte d'Arthur', written under his pseudonym Alan Seymour, have been cut up and incorporated into the typescript and also bear manuscript corrections. We understand that this set is one of a very small number--probably no more than five--of copies made up for submission to publishers, and may very well be one of only a couple of copies surviving. According to his biographer, Brian Stableford, 'The Song of Arthur' was his life's work. It was just finished when a bomb destroyed the manuscript in 1941. Wright spent much of the rest of his life recreating it. It was unpublished at his death in 1965. In 'The Song of Arthur', Wright intended to incorporate the whole body of Arthuriana into a single work of blank verse. Volume one commences with Book One, 'Merlin', and volume four concludes with Book XXIV, 'The Death of Arthur'. Some of the books are bound out of order, e.g., 'The Riding of Lancelot' (Book VIII) follows Book IX ('Tristam'). Light wear else in very good condition. [Attributes: Hard 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.

      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.

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.

        Sindbad le Marin (Sinbad the Sailor) et d'Autres Contes des Mille et Une Nuits.

      Paris H. Piazza (1919) - Quarto. 148pp., + (27)ff. plates. French edition. One of 1,500 copies. The twenty-seven color plates by Edmund Dulac are tipped-in with tissue guards. 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. (White, pp. 69-72; Hughey 35h). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        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]
