        Six poèmes *

      A.J.Gonon, Paris 1919. - En feuilles 43 x 33, couverture marbrée feuilles d'automne avec nom frappé or. Dos fissuré, menus défauts. Imposant et fragile ouvrage artisanal, publiée par un relieur (celui d'Eluard) qui a été tenté par l'édition. Les gardes ont été renforcées par une double feuillet (volant) de papier (Vergé) Van Gelder, ce qui a évité que le verso de la délicate couverture ne décharge sur ce beau Japon. Cette majestueuse plaquette étant annoncé "dans une version nouvelle de Léon Bazalgette", est-ce à dire qu'une publication en revue la précède ? Un grand souffle poétique parcourt ces textes qui n'ont particulièprement bien vieilli, peut-être est-ce dû aux thèmes éternels abordés, d'un érotisme à la fois léger, direct et naturel.La couverture des Japon semble différente de celle des ordinaires, dans des tons de bleu nuit, tandis que l'intégralité du tirage est manifestement signée.Premier et émouvant livre illustré par Lurçat, dans le meilleur exemplaire possible après le premier truffé de tous les dessins, avec un petit envoi de l'éditeur. Édition originale. Après le numéro 1 comportant tous les dessins originaux L'un des 14 exemplaires de tête numérotés et réimposés sur Japon, signés par l'illustrateur et l'éditeur, avant 100 Vélin van Gelder.

        One of Theodore Roosevelt'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'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'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.

A copyright date on the typeset title page is 1913, but this is the date of the composition of the music. Debussy died in 1918, leaving only the piano score and a few pages of orchestration. These were complete by his student André Caplet for the debut in 1919 with Hallé's sets and costumes. Issued in both wraps and boards, this is the copy in publisher's wraps. Both issues are rare and fragile. The spine and one of the folds of the wraps have been strengthened on this copy, there is some light wear to the corners else this is a very good copy.

      1919. London: William Heinemann, 1919. 4 pp ads dated 1919. Original sage green cloth decorated in black. First Edition, published about three months before the American edition. This was Maugham's first book published after OF HUMAN BONDAGE (1915); he was an intelligence agent during the war, permitting him considerable travel. THE MOON AND SIXPENCE is~an excellent presentation of the [Paul] Gauguin case in the person of Strickland (not meant to be the French painter himself), a stockbroker who deserts wife, work and family after 17 years to become a painter. Everything is subordinated to his passion for his art and he regards love as a tiresome intrusion upon it. He dies of leprosy in the South Seas, leaving behind the pictures that make his name famous. [CGEL]~This copy is from the first issue (the three issues differ only in ads): the four pages of ads are present, and on their second page are listed six titles by Phillpotts, seventeen by Steel, and three by Zangwill. Condition is fine -- which is quite remarkable given how cheaply-produced the book was (the leaves are slightly browned, as always). After OF HUMAN BONDAGE and THE RAZOR'S EDGE, this is among Maugham's top titles. Toole Stott A22a.

        Exposition du Systême du Monde.Paris: De l'Imprimerie du Cercle-Social, l'An IV [1796]. First edition.

      An outstanding copy, in contemporary red morocco and with the very rare errata leaves, of Laplace's classic work on the origin and formation of the solar system in which he first stated his celebrated 'nebular hypothesis.' Sparrow, Milestones of Science 123; Honeyman 1919.<br/><br/> "One of the most successful popularizations of science ever composed." (DSB). "An elegant, non-mathematical classic on astronomy. It is in this work that Laplace introduced one of his most notable contributions (although he himself did not take it very seriously at first) -- the so-called nebular hypothesis, which provided a conjectural account of the origin of the solar system. This remained through the 19th century the most widely accepted view on the subject" (PMM 252). <br/><br/> "The two-volume work consists of five books. Book I begins with what any attentive observer may see if he will open his eyes to the spectacle of the heavens on a clear night with a view of the whole horizon. Book II (...) sets out the 'real' motions of planets, satellites, and comets and gives the dimensions of the solar system. Book III is a verbal précis of the laws of motion as understood in eighteenth-century rational mechanics, with special reference to astronomy and hydrostatics. In Book IV, Laplace in effect summarized his own work in gravitational mechanics. (...) Only Book V contains material that Laplace had not written up in technical form or presupposed. It gives an overview of the history of astronomy and concludes with the speculation since called the nebular hypothesis and another on the nature of the universe in outer space". (DSB). <br/><br/> As mentioned in the 2004 Christie's sale of the library of Jean-Louis Mosès: "A pair of errata leaves was added to very few copies [not present in the Mosès-Barrillot copy]". Both of these errata leaves are present in our copy. We can find no copy in the auction records having the errata leaves.. 8vo (193 x 116 mm), two volumes bound together in contemporary richly gilt red morocco, pp. [1-7] 8-314, [4:index], [2:errata]; [1-5] 6-312, [4:index], [2:errata]

      1919. [from Conrad to the Sandersons] A Story Between Two Notes. London: T. Fisher Unwin, (1919). Original dark green cloth. First English Edition, published four months after (and including corrections made by Conrad too late for) the American edition. Unwin published three of Conrad&#39;s first four books (1895-98), but then no others until this one.~This copy does have the "A" in the p. 67 headline (other copies have the "A" slipping or absent). This volume is in very good-to-near-fine condition (very light external wear and soil, slight cracking of the endpapers). Cagle A38.b.1. Provenance (after the original owners, detailed below): bookplate of Stanley J. Seeger&#39;s renowned Joseph Conrad collection. Housed in a handsome morocco-backed slipcase with inner chemise. ~THIS COPY IS INSCRIBED BY CONRAD, "To dear Helen & Ted Sanderson | with love | J. Conrad | 1919". Edward Lancelot Sanderson had first met Conrad when, in 1893, he traveled to the South Pacific with John Galsworthy; the two travelers returned via the Torrens, the ship on which Conrad was first mate. At this time Conrad was working on his first book, and Sanderson encouraged him in this pursuit (both on board and after returning to land -- in April 1894 Conrad would spend ten days with the Sanderson family, to work on the final chapter). Sanderson helped to prepare the tale for publication: it would be offered to the public in 1895, as ALMAYER&#39;S FOLLY. Conrad&#39;s next book, AN OUTCAST OF THE ISLANDS (1896), would be dedicated to Sanderson; by then Conrad had also been introduced to Miss Helen Mary Watson, who in 1898 would become Sanderson&#39;s wife. The couple remained two of Conrad&#39;s closest friends and supporters throughout his life.

        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.

Orange and black pictorial boards showing Cinderella with the magic pumpkin, rats and the Fairy Godmother. Green/white pictorial endpapers. 110 pages. 10 x 7.5 inches. An extremely striking book.

        SOUTH: The Story of Shackleton&#39;s 1914-1917 Expedition

      London: William Heinemann, 1919. First edition, first issue. With a color frontispiece, 87 illustrations from photos and drawings, and a folding map at the rear. 8vo, publisher&#146;s original blue cloth lettered and pictorially decorated in silver on spine and upper cover. xxi, 368. A handsome, clean, fresh and well preserved copy. The paper toned far less than normal, the binding and silverwork in pleasing order with only very minimal evidence of age. ONE OF THE GREATEST BOOKS IN THE SOUTH POLAR OEUVRE AND INCREASINGLY MORE RARE AND DIFFICULT TO OBTAIN, ESPECIALLY IN COLLECTOR&#146;S CONDITION. THIS IS ONE OF THE GREATEST EPICS IN THE HISTORY OF ANTARCTIC TRAVEL AND ONE OF THE MOST HARROWING TALES EVER PENNED OF RESCUE AND HUMAN TRIUMPH. SOUTH is the story of Shackleton&#39;s failed attempt, after learning of Amundsen&#39;s attainment of the South Pole, to be the first to cross the final continent from sea to sea. One of the great titles in the Polar genre. Copies of the first issue of the first edition in any condition have become truly scarce. &#147;The story of our attempt is the subject for the following pages, and I think that though failure in the actual accomplishment must be recorded, there are chapters in this book of high adventure, strenuous days, lonely nights, unique experiences, and above all, records of unflinching determination, supreme loyalty, and generous self-sacrifice on the part of my men which, even in these days that have witnessed the sacrifices of nations and regardlessness of self on the part of individuals, still will be of interest to readers who now turn gladly from the red horror of war and the strain of the last five years to read, perhaps with more understanding minds, the tale of the White Warfare of the South. The struggles, the disappointments, and the endurance of this small party of Britishers, hidden away for nearly two years in the fastnesses of the Polar ice, striving to carry out the ordained task and ignorant of the crises through which the world was passing, make a story which is unique in the history of Antarctic exploration.&#148; - Shackleton from the Preface.

        The Moon and Sixpence

      London: Heinemann. (1919). One of Maugham&#39;s most successful and influential novels, loosely based on the life of the artist Paul Gauguin but with autobiographical elements as well: a respected professional leaves his conventional life, and his family, to pursue the life of an artist -- a path that Maugham himself took shortly after writing this book. It was the first novel he published after the success of Of Human Bondage, an autobiographical novel that is still considered one of the high spots of 20th century literature, which established Maugham as a major writer of his generation. This follow-up, also a 20th century high spot, confirmed that place. The Moon and Sixpence has been filmed several times, including a 1959 television movie with Laurence Olivier in the lead role, his first American television appearance, for which he won an Emmy Award. First issue, with four pages of ads at the rear integral, not inserted. Pages browned with age, as is usual with this title. Cloth a bit edge-darkened with trace rubbing to the extremities; near fine in a very good, spine-darkened dust jacket with a few slivers of loss to the spine fold and the front flap fold. A very nice copy of an early Maugham book, which almost never turns up in dust jacket. . First Edition. Hardcover.

Johnson/Blanck, American First Editions, p. 25. Rogers A28. & "America should read this book on her knees," Hart Crane wrote of "Winesburg, Ohio" when it appeared in 1919. "It constitutes an important chapter in the Bible of her consciousness." H. L. Mencken called the book "a piece of work that stands out from the common run of fiction like the Alps from the Piedmont plain." According to Rogers (p. 6), "Winesberg is the story of &#39;walls&#39;&#151;people walled in, struggling to communicate, desperately attempting to reach out and touch those around them, yet for the most part unable to crash the walls, unable to communicate meaningfully, unable to escape their utter isolation." The short stories that make up this collection can stand alone, but together they form a composite picture of small town American life revolving around the young journalist George Willard&#151;a double for Anderson, who based the town of the title on Clyde, Ohio, where he spent much of his childhood. As we move from one story to the next, characters appear and reappear; we visit increasingly familiar landmarks, where we find townsfolk struggling with increasingly familiar problems. Plot is less the point than mood and moment in this formally inventive cycle. "&#39;Winesburg, Ohio&#39; was highly regarded in literary circles. It had a significant influence on other important works of American modernism, . . . [and] on both Ernest Hemingway and William Faulkner. Though Anderson&#146;s reputation would never reach the heights of Hemingway or Faulkner&#146;s, &#39;Winesburg, Ohio&#39; remains one of the key works of American modernism . . ."

All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. "Winesburg" is a formally inventive cycle of stories.
