        Palestine, the Land of Promise and Adventure: An Account, Descriptive & Historical, of Famous Cities & Places in the Holy Land, Visited on Active Service with the E. E. F

      Cairo, The Nile Mission Press, (1919).. Small octavo. Pp. 54. Plus 34 halftone photographic plates, printed on different paper, bound in. Original pictorial grey card wrappers, bit rubbed, corner creased, upper wrapper with tape repair for short tear. Else, a fine copy. ~ A fascinating small book, written and photographed by the Senior Chaplain to the Forces, Egyptian Expeditionary Force, with the intention to provide His Majesty's soldiers with a handy book of reference to Palestine and the Holy Land. The book contains a relatively large number of plates, depicting ancient and new towns and villages, holy shrines, landscapes, historical monuments and sites, and some inhabitants. Most fascinating are the images of pure military interest: a derelict tank; a cannon named ?Jericho Jane?; and a mobile gun, nicknamed the ?Finish Turk?. Reverend Payne's text is a wonderful combination of historical background, actual information, traveller's notations, and Biblical contemplations. He previously wrote ?Jerusalem, the City of the Great King? which was meant to serve as a guide book to Jerusalem. Both these books were sold in army canteen huts. In his Foreword, Philip W. Chetwode, Late Commanding 20th Army Corps, Palestine, writes: ?I feel sure that all soldiers who find themselves, now or in the future, serving in Palestine, will be grateful to him for having provided them with such a useful book which cannot fail to add to the interest of the time they spend in the Holy Land.?

        Sweden's Laureate: Selected Poems of Verner Von Heidenstam [Signed / Ingraverat]

      New Haven, CT: Yale University Press, 1919. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good/very good. A not quite Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing with a number of the page edges uncut/unopened at their bottom edges (rubbing through to the bottom edge of each board as well as part of the other edges, rubbing to the spine ends and board corners, some chipping to the spine label --- lacking the scarce dust jacket), SIGNED BY VERNER VON HEIDENSTAM on the title page. Swedish Poet and Novelist Verner Von Heidenstam, known for the joy of life shown in his prose and poetry, won the 1916 Nobel Prize in Literature "in recognition of his significance as the leading representative of a new era in our literature". The leader of his generation of Swedish Poets, and ranked among the masters of Swedish Literature, von Heidenstam regenerated Swedish Poetry, abandoning the then-prevalent realistic school of Swedish Poetry and its gloomy works, and introducing imagination and the value of appreciating beauty for its own sake. Thus, at the ceremony held to present the Prize to von Heidenstam, the noted Swedish critic Sven Söderman stated: "In the constellation of original artists who regenerated Swedish poetry at the end of the last century, Verner von Heidenstam was the most brilliant star. He was the leader of the generation of poets of 1890; he was the first to set forth in theory and also to realize in his works the ideal of new Swedish generations." Söderman also noted that von Heidenstam's first poetic work, "Vallfart och vandringsÃ¥r" (1888) ["Pilgrimage: The Wander Years"], "...marked an epoch in the modern literature of Sweden. In truth it gave the final blow to the realistic school, enemy of all imagination, which was then dominant in Sweden and which since 1880 had darkened literature with its sadness and its gloom. This was the first manifestation of a new poetry in which free individuals, led only by the logic of their imagination, worshipped beauty for its own sake. " (The book herein described includes work from "Vallfart och vandringsÃ¥r" (1888) as well as from "Dikter" (1895) [Poems] and from "Nya Dikter" (1915) [New Poems], presenting approximately one-fourth of the work presented in those three volumes.) As noted above, a number of leaf-pairs remain uncut at the bottom, indicating that the book likely has not been read -- certainly not in its entirety. Signed copies of von Heidenstam's work in any language, in any edition, and in any condition are extraordinarily scarce. In our experience, his signed books are among the scarcest of all those of the Nobel Prize in Literature winners. On our most recent check, the auction records revealed no signed copies of Verner von Heidenstam's works in any language appearing at auction in the past 39 years, beyond which the records do not go. A Very Good copy of this quite scarce assemblage of Verner von Heidenstam's works, being only the second book of von Heidenstam's work to be published in English translation, SIGNED BY VERNER VON HEIDENSTAM. EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE TO RARE.

        TALES OF MYSTERY AND IMAGINATION

      London: George G. Harrap & Co. Limited, 1919. Very scarce, first edition DELUXE ISSUE ON FINE HANDMADE PAPER. Limited issue of only 170 copies SIGNED AND NUMBERED BY HARRY CLARKE. With 24 stunning full page black and white plates by Harry Clarke and with a profusion of very fine Clarke designed head and tail-pieces throughout. Large, thick 4to, in the publisher&#39;s best deluxe binding of full vellum, the upper board decorated in gilt from designs by Harry Clarke, the spine gilt lettered, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. 383 pp. A very fine and beautiful copy, still partially unopened, the text bright and the vellum unusually fresh and clean. THE RARE DELUXE EDITION OF ONLY 170 SIGNED AND NUMBERED COPIES. Perhaps the most perfect edition of Edgar Allen Poe&#39;s TALES OF MYSTERY AND IMAGINATION. Clarke&#39;s stunning black and white plates utilize dramatic wide areas of black with intricate areas of white appearing nearly scratched out. The effect at once conveys both the beauty and horror unique to Poe&#39;s writing and evokes the dense spiritual qualities of the exquisite text. A wonderful marriage of artist and writer and "probably the ideal interpreter of Edgar Allan Poe." (Bowe, 53)<br> There are twenty-nine tales including "The Pit and the Pendulum", "The Murders in the Rue Morgue", "The Fall of the House of Usher", and "The Descent into the Maelstrom.

        A LA SANTE DU CORPS. POEME PAR MAURICE VLAMINCK, DECORE PAR ANDRE DERAIN. Signed.

      François Bernouard, Paris 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]. Designed with four full page black & white Derain illustrations. A bit of offsetting to the prelims, heavy cover stock mildly aged with light soiling. Very uncommon. 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.

        Tragédiás figurák. Regény

      Budapest: MA folyoirat kiadasa 1919 - Octavo 21 x 13.5 cm, wrappers, 112p. With a fine frontispiece linocut portrait of Kassák and abstract lithograph cover by Sándor Bortnyik. Kassák led and developed Aktivizmus, first through A TETT (1915-16), then into MA (1916-24). Self-taught as a novelist, poet, painter and graphic designer, he is inevitably viewed as the strongest and most persevering force of the Hungarian avant-garde. In each of the areas he devoted he produced major accomplishments. Tragédiás figurák was written and published in the days following the collapse of the Hungarian Empire, collective shock and swift radicalization of politics leading to the brief 1919 Soviet Republic and its demise. Kassák remained true to himself and his principles against all outer pressures. His life was that of an exile, first from the persecution of the Soviet Republic and ensuing Royalist regime, then under fascist and later communist governments. He only achieved official recognition after his death. Cover is the black variant of blue. Bound in boards with wrappers preserved. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      December 1919 - One leaf (24.7 x 17.5 cm) typed on two sides, with a 1 Fr. stamp 'Republique Francaise' and a dry stamp of notarial registration; light folds. Rare document giving very informative details on Diaghilev's conditions with theater directors. In this particular contract, we read that he will earn 25,000 francs for two representations in Lyon in 1920, and we understand what his obligations are, in particular relating to dates, technical organisation (transport, setting,.) and programming: five ballets should be danced, including Sheherazade (at the time with Nijinsky and Ida Rubinstein) and two other not given yet in Lyon.
