        HEARTBREAK HOUSE. Great Catherine And Playlets Of The War. Inscribed.

      Constable and Company, London 1919 - Shaw, George Bernard. HEARTBREAK HOUSE. Great Catherine And Playlets Of The War. Inscribed. London: Constable and Company, 1919. "You'll never have a quiet world till you knock the patriotism out of the human race." First Edition. Small 8vo. 266 pp. + 2 pp. of adverts. A near fine copy in light moss green cloth, gilt titles to the spine in a bright, fresh example of the dustwrapper. Custom TBCL embossed cloth slipcase in fine condition. A significant presentation copy inscribed in black fountain pen on the half-title: "To Robert Loraine / from Bernard Shaw. / 10th October 1919". Loraine [1876-1935] was a man of action: actor-manager, soldier, aviator, Fabian & of course, a close friend to Shaw - perhaps best known as an actor he's seen most commonly on holiday with the Shaw’s & Harley Granville-Barker or at Fabian events. Loraine & Shaw shared political affiliations & a passion for theatre: it was Loraine who premiered as the lead in Man & Superman on Broadway, the production was massively successful & launched Shaw as a force to be reckoned with in the United States. Excellent example. Laurence A149b. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Wild Swans at Coole

      New York: Macmillan. 1919. Hardcover. Good. First American edition, 1919. 8vo, gray-blue boards in dust jacket. Book about very good, evidence of modest dampstaining in the rippling of the boards to both the spine and about one inch in from the spine along both boards, and the contents have some suggestive waviness to the pages throughout. Still, the boards are sharp and the spine ends are surprisingly unfrayed - almost a very good copy of the book. The very rare dust wrapper is very good, repeating the design by T. Sturge Moore, with modest waviness and some modest darkening to spine. Lightest wear to spine ends. Extremely scarce in dust jacket.

        Original book cover design for the second edition of Cloudesley Brereton's Mystica et Lyrica by Sturge Moore, published by Elkin Mathews

      n.p., [c.1919]. Approx. 8 x 9-1/4 inches. Pen-and-ink on paper, heightened with white. Design on thin paper mounted on board, containing instructions in margins of board, with mounted sheet of notebook paper tipped to top edge covering design, containing written instructions, and signed "TSM." Minor chipping to notebook paper and corners of board, two discreet tears to design, minor soiling and browning. A great example of Moore's book design work. Nelson, Elkin Matthews, pp. 69 (an illustration of this cover) and 243; Houfe, Dictionary of British Book Illustrators, pp. 393-4 . The publisher Elkin Mathews was an important link between the periods of Victorian and modern literature, his publishing career covering the thirty years from 1887 to 1921. His choices influenced the rise of modern literature, publishing such cornerstones as Wilde's Salome, Yeats's Wind Among the Reeds, Grahame's Pagan Papers, among others (Nelson, p. 3). Elkin's choices of artists to create the covers for his publications were as significant as his choices of authors and works. Parallell to the rise of modern literature was the artistic trend towards modernism, of which Moore was a significant contributor. His uncluttered, bold, yet fluid style echoed the words written by his literary contemporaries. Houfe called Moore's designs "not so consciously archaic as Morris's and extremely well balanced in light and shade." This is a fine example of Moore's work

      E.P. Dutton & Co., New York: 1919 - First Edition, Inscribed by Laura Richards to Daisy Chanler on the ffe, "For my beloved Daisy. / with much love from / her devoted / LER / Christmas. 1919" . 8vo; original green gilt-stamped cloth; light blue dust jacket printed in dark blue; book with a bit of light rubbing to corners and spine ends, gilt on spine a bit dimmed, with small (1/4" stain to the left of the first two words of title on spine, two small white dots on back hinge; jacket a bit soiled, rubbed, and chipped at extremities, about very good. A nice association copy of a scarce Howe title. This volume was published for the centenary of the birth of Julia Ward Howe and the editor has noted that although her mother's journals were not intended for publication, she has decided to publish them as they "may conceivably help and comfort other seekers of the Way.". Much of the poetry included herein is previously unpublished as is an essay on immortality, "Beyond the Veil." Julia Ward Howe (1819-1910), author of The Battle Hymn of the Republic, poet, abolitionist and suffrage leader, lay preacher, peace worker and primary mover in the club movement, was the first woman elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters (1808), a precedent not repeated until 1930. Laura Elizabeth Richards (1850- 1943) author, sister of Maud Howe Elliott, spent most of her life in Gardner, Maine, and she dedicated much of her life to the welfare of that community. She wrote a number of successful children's books. In 1915 she was awarded the Pulitzer Prize (with her sister) for their biography of their mother. NAW III, pp. 148-150. Margaret "Daisy" Terry Chanler (1862-1952), author, was the half-sister of novelist Marion Crawford and an intimate friend of Edith Wharton. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED (ALS) to "Dear Klarkash-Ton" [Clark Ashton Smith] written on both sides of a single sheet of plain 5 1/2" x 9 inch paper, signed "E'ch-Pi-El." The letter is not dated, but is accompanied by an envelope addressed to Smith in Lovecraft's hand which is postmarked 21 March 1932. The envelope has Lovecraft's full signature and 10 Barnes Street return address in his hand on the verso.

      - A chatty letter, relating literary news about himself and their fellow writers of weird fiction: the demise of Swanson's GALAXY magazine, which "died a-borning!," the purchase of a new fountain pen at Woolworth's, his aversion to "composing" on the typewriter ("the very sight of the damn thing empties my mind of all connected ideas and images"), typing a circulation copy of "Witch House" (when he "can get the nerve" to do so), his plan to "fix up a new note book of daemonic plots" as "I've lent my old one -- used since 1919 -- to various brother fantaseers from time to time, & it's just about worn to pieces," and the progress of stories by various mutual acquaintances. "Tucked into this letter, is one of those fragments of weird fiction that emerge spontaneously in some of Lovecraft's letters (though usually during the critique of some work by the recipient). Here, Lovecraft mentions that during a visit to a local museum he 'came upon a black, gleaming specimen which certainly cannot be other than an eikon of Tsuthoggna! It was a semi-shapeless congeries of nighted curves -- squat & swollen, & with a curious suggestion of flabby viscosity despite the superficially petrific composition. [and it] left little room for doubt that it once stood in some curtained niche. of some such arcane delver as Athlaphoros, who dwelt in the Street of the Alembics & vanished suddenly shortly before the desertion of the city.' All pretty juvenile, no doubt, but the boyish exuberance is hard to resist." - Robert Eldridge. Faint fold creases, else fine, with "Mar 21, 1932" later added in pencil at top of first page. Good content. (#114496) [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Book of Modern British Verse

      Boston: Small, Maynard 1919 - 12mo., dark blue cloth stamped in gilt; top edge gilt; lightly soiled. First edition. Porter p. 16. A presentation copy, inscribed: "To Sara Teasdale Filsinger - English contemporaries who might do well to emulate her - from William Stanley Braithwaite, Christmas 1919, Arlington Heights, Massachusetts," on the front free endpaper. (Prints poetry by James Joyce, Robert Graves, and others.) ---- To biographer Margaret Carpenter, Boston-born belletrist Braithwaite mused at length about Sara Teasdale, the "dear poet," whose work he had anthologized and generously reviewed for some twenty years. His own verse rooted in the same "exquisite sensibility," Braithwaite saw that "beauty and magic, springtime and stars, sunlight and shadow, the human dream and urgency - were in Sara Teasdale's heart from the beginning, which her mind, like a sun, drew up and there shaped into those images vibrant with music, and then showered forth as a balm for human aches and joys." The year before "The Book of Modern British Verse" appeared, Teasdale was awarded the first (unofficial) Pulitzer Prize for poetry ("Love Songs," 1917) and Braithwaite garnered the Spingarn Medal for "the highest and noblest achievement of an American Negro."

        POEMS

      Printed and published by L. & V. Woolf at The Hogarth Press, Hogarth House, Richmond. 1919. FIRST EDITION. First state text with the 2 missprints on page 13. These were corrected in later copies. 8vo. (9.2 x 6.1 inches). -- An Eliot family copy with the ownership signature of Eliot&#39;s cousin Abigail A(dams) Eliot on the front blank endpaper. Abigail Eliot (1892-1992) was a well known authority on Nursery Education in America and is known to have visited England during 1919-1920 to study at Oxford. -- Sewn in original blue and white marbled paper wraps with the earliest issue title label, printed in red, to the front panel. One of fewer than 250 copies (probably circa 200) hand printed and bound by the Woolfs. The Hogarth Press accounts book shows that 180 copies were sold and twelve presentation or review copies were distributed within a year of publication. Both J. Howard Woolmer and Donald Gallup, in their respective bibliographies of Eliot and The Hogarth Press state that the earliest copies were bound up in paper wrappers of varying texture and design with a red lettered label, and that later copies were bound up in marbled paper wrappers, the majority with a label lettered in black. The fact that this copy has the earliest state, uncorrected text and the earliest state label throws some doubt on this assertion. The wrappers edges are a little chipped and show some minor fading, and there has been a neat, professional repair to a split in the fold of the wrapper but this is still overall a very good example of this fragile booklet. One of the rarest of Eliot&#39;s works, copies with the early state text and label seldom come onto the market, the addition of a family association attached to this copy, adding the strong possibilty of it being one of the 12 presentation copies, makes it rarer still. --- Gallup; A3.--- Woolmer; 4. --- Willis. L.eonard & Virginia Woolf as publishers: The Hogarth Press; page 30.
