        Verbannte [Exiles]

      Zurich: Rascher & Cie.. 1919. The first German edition of Joyce's play Exiles and the first of his works to be published in translation in any language. One of 600 copies printed, Slocum & Cahoon D44. Joyce was living in Zurich at the time and he paid for the publication of this book out of his own pocket. This copy is inscribed by the author: "To J.R. [sic] Watson, Jun / with grateful regards / James Joyce / 8. ix. 1919." J.S. Watson, Jr. was at the time the co-owner of the modernist literary journal The Dial, which he bought from Martyn Johnson with his friend and fellow Harvard graduate, Scofield Thayer. Watson became president of the magazine and Thayer became its editor. The "grateful regards" refers to a gift of $300 that Watson had sent Joyce earlier in the year at the urging of Thayer, who had himself sent Joyce $700. These sums bailed Joyce out of dire financial straits, allowed him to settle a court case against him, and helped him support the theater group that he had associated with in Zurich, the English Players. In 1920 The Dial published a piece by Joyce, and in 1921 Thayer was one of his most ardent and influential supporters in the censorship case in New York against Ulysses and its publication in the Little Review. A notable association copy of Joyce's first translation. Pages browned and acidified, and covers strengthened at all the edges and spine with tape, with a hole cut in the spine for the title to show through. The first blank, on which the inscription appears, is also strengthened at the edges with tape. Fragile, and a candidate for de-acidification, but a significant association copy from a critical point in Joyce's life and career. . First Edition. Softcover.

        The Song of Arthur

      n.p.: n.p., n.d.. Typescript. Very good. 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.

        One of Theodore Roosevelt&#39;s Last Signed Letters

      New York, 1919. Theodore Roosevelt signed this typed letter on 3 January 1919, three days before his death in the early morning of 6 January 1919. The short letter, on Kansas City Star letterhead, is to the father of Major Clyde E. Winterton expressing appreciation for sharing a letter from his son that described combat in the final days of World War One during the Meuse-Argonne Offensive. Perhaps, Roosevelt&#39;s response was so brief as a result of his extreme emotional distress over the loss of his son, Quentin, in the war. The letter has been trimmed at the margins. An accompanying newspaper clipping notes that this letter from Roosevelt was one of the last that he wrote. A transcript of the letter that Winterton&#39;s father sent to Roosevelt is also included. (This letter was found laid in to a scrapbook kept by Winterton. The scrapbook is being sold separately.). Signed by Author. Letter. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.

The illustrations are mainly of British birds and several British wild mammals are included.

His first education was at Dalkeith and in Edinburgh, after which he was sent to the newly founded St John's Wood School of Art in London. His stay there was only brief, since on the death of his father he sought the guidance of Joseph Wolf. It was his commission in 1887 to illustrate Lord Lilford's Coloured Figures of the Birds of the British Isles, for which he painted some 268 watercolours, that established his reputation. He illustrated numerous sporting and natural history books, including his own [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Souvenir From Washington State Prison by Eugene Barnett [Cover from title: Souvenir From Washington State Penitentiary By 9414]

      Walla Walla: by the Author, n.d.. Eugene Barnett was one of eight I.W.W. members convicted of murder in the wake of the 1919 Centralia Massacre. He was released in 1931, having served a little less than eleven years of his twenty-five year sentence. During his incarceration, Barnett continued to agitate on behalf of the Wobblies, writing songs, poems and short stories in addition to producing hundreds of cartoons. Many of these are reproduced in this little hand-made book, self-published by Barnett in his spare hours, using the facilities of the prison print shop. Proceeds went home to support his ailing wife and children. & & That Alice Stone Blackwell, the prominent Boston feminist, would have been among Barnett&#39;s supporters comes as no great surprise, as the I.W.W. agitated far and wide in support of the Centralia prisoners, all eight of whom were at worst guilty of nothing more than self-defense, and more likely were simply random victims of vigilante justice. Surprise (or lack of it) aside, such relics of the first generation of Wobblies are in our experience vanishingly scarce, and this must rank as one of the choicest I.W.W. items we have handled.& & As the pamphlet has been catalogued under a variety of titles by WorldCat institutions, and there appear to have been at least three printings (one much later), it is difficult to state with certainty the number of OCLC holdings of this title. The correct number is probably two (UC Berkeley & Oregon); but possibly four (adding N&#39;western & WSU); other listings appear to be for a much later (1940) reissue under the variant title Nature&#39;s Woodland Bowers. No date (not later than 1928). 16mo (16.5cm x 12cm). Original pictorial wrappers, [60pp]; illus. [WITH] Original picture-postcard, reproducing on recto Barnett&#39;s original composition "Why Don&#39;t You Unite?," addressed in ink to Alice Stone Blackwell, with a note of 12 lines thanking her for her check and expressing hope that she received "the souvenir booklet;" dated June 5, 1928. Condition of pamphlet is Good, with edge-chipping to cover wraps; postcard Near Fine.

The Chapbook the successor to Monro's previous publication, POETRY And DRAMA [1913 - 1914], and together, they "represented an expression of Monro's lifelong commitment to support of new directions in poetry, poetic drama, and criticism, and to increasing the audience for this writing." Over the course of publication, contributions came from over 150 writers, of which many notables of the day were included: T. S. Eliot, Richard Aldington, A. E. Coppard, H. D., W. H. Davies, Walter De La Mare, John Drinkwater, Ford Maddux Hueffer [Ford], Aldous Huxley, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Siegfried Sassoon, Edith Sitwell & Alex Waugh, to name but a baker's dozen.

Otherwise, a generally VG+ run, and not often found thus. Original paper wrappers, sewn, [often] with a color pictorial image to the front wrapper, usually designed by Albert Rutherstone or C.

        Industry and Trade, A Study of Industrial Technique and Business Organization; and of their Influence on the Conditions of Various Classes and Nations,

      - First Edition, xiv, 875pp thick large octavo, spine lettering a little dull [as in every copy] but a very good copy in original cloth, London, Macmillan, 1919. * Keynes, 80. "It represents the fruits of Marshall's learning and ripe wisdom on a host of different matters. The book is a mine rather than a railway like the Principles, a thing to quarry in and search for buried treasure. It contains the suggestions, the starting points for many investigations." J. M. Keynes in Memorials of Alfred Marshall (1925) * Industry and Trade, Marshall's second masterpiece, (after Principles of Economics) finally appeared in August 1919. It was a magisterial, largely factual, consideration of trends in the British and international economy and of future economic prospects. * "The present volume is a study of industry and trade; with special reference to the technical evolution of industry, and its influences on the conditions of man's life and work " Marshall's opening to preface. Within its comprehensive range it includes sections on industrial leadership; mass production; growth of factories; dominant tendencies of business organization; applications of scientific method; scientific management; marketing &c and gives an academic and scholarly overview of the theory (and history) behind the development of manufactures in Britain. * "Alfred Marshall was the dominant figure in British economics (itself dominant in world economics) from about 1890 until his death in 1924. His specialty was microeconomics - the study of individual markets and industries, as opposed to the study of the whole economy To make economics dynamic rather than static, Marshall used the tools of classical mechanics, including the concept of optimization. With these tools he, like neoclassical economists who have followed in his footsteps, took as givens technology, market institutions, and people's preferences. But Marshall was not satisfied with his approach. He once wrote that "the Mecca of the economist lies in economic biology rather than in economic dynamics." In other words, Marshall was arguing that the economy was an evolutionary process in which technology, market institutions, and people's preferences evolve along with people's behaviour." - New Palgrave.

Melbourne, Aukland, Christchurch, Dunedin and Wellington and London: Whitcombe & Tombs Limited, [1919]. 4to (7 3/4 x 10 1/4"), wraps, color plate on cover, string ties, mend on title, slight bit of foxing, near Fine. Illustrated by Gaze with 2 tipped- in color plates (plus color plate on cover repeated in-text), 1 tipped-in black and white plate and 8 pen and ink drawings in-text (one full page) all featuring a strange animal called a Jaggajay (a cousin of the Billibonga Bird), an Alligator and an elf named Mite Merry. The story is told in verse. This is one of 3 titles in the Mite Merry Series. Gaze was born in New Zealand and except for a short stint at art school in London, he was largely self-taught. He eventually moved to Pasadena where he did some work for the Disney Studio. Although he didn&#39;t illustrate a large number of books his work is distinctive and wonderful. Holden in Golden Age p. 80 notes about the books in this series that "by Australian standards these titles were milestones in the history of children&#39;s book production. Their large quarto format and pleasing typography and layout were indicative of the publisher&#39;s understandable enthusiasm and belief that a major new talent had arrived." Marcie Muir notes that "After Ida Rentoul Outhwaite, the artist who dominated the fairy genre in Australian children&#39;s books was Harold Gaze " (Hist. Aust. Child. Bks. p77). See Muir Bib. 2699 This is a great copy of a rare book.

Loosely inserted between two of the preliminary leaves is the original Constable & Co., request card which has left a small rectangular mark on the two facing pages."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&#151;Mr. Rackham&#146;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).
