        Die natürliche Wirtschaftsordnung durch Freiland und Freigeld.

      Rehbrücke bei Berlin, Freiland-Freigeldverlag 1920 - Five parts in one volume. Royal octavo. Pp. xvi, 392. Divisional title to each part. With full-page illustrations, some in colour, and text illustrations, tables. Index, publisher's catalogue. Set in Gothic type. Bound in later stiff wrappers with flaps, typed title-labels to cover and spine. In about fine condition (light coloured pencil annotation to 2-3 pages). Excellent copy. ~ Fourth edition. Published originally as two separate works, part I, II, III, and IV under the title "Die Verwirklichung des Rechtes auf den vollen Arbeitsertrag (.)" (1906); and part V under the title "Die neue Lehre vom Geld und Zins (.)" (1911). It appeared later as second edition in one volume with the title "Die natürliche Wirtschaftsordnung". English version, "The Natural Economic Order" translated from the 6th German edition by Philip Pye, appeared in 1929. Silvio Gesell (1862-1930), German businessman. Born in Belgium, Gesell emigrated to Buenos Aires, where he successfully engaged in business. In 1914 he returned to Germany and became, five years later, finance minister in the short-lived government of Bavaria. His ideas in "Die natürliche Wirtschaftsordnung" are a reaction against Marxian socialism. Keynes, in his "General Theory", gives much space to the book, and expresses his belief that the future would learn more from the spirit of Gesell than from that of Marx. (Mai, P. 95).

        This Side of Paradise.

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons,, 1920. Octavo. Original green cloth, spine lettered in gilt and front board in blind. Housed in a blue quarter morocco slipcase. Contents evenly tanned and slightly shaken, spine a little faded and bruised at ends. Overall a very good copy with a few knocks to the boards. First edition, first printing, presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "Compliments & luck to Whitney Darrow from F Scott Fitzgerald April 2nd 1920 New York City". The inscription is in two parts, Fitzgerald having apparently signed and dated the copy first, before adding the salutation to the recipient above. The recipient was the elder of the two Whitney Darrows (father and son) with each of whom Fitzgerald held a long acquaintance. They were Princeton men and each played key roles in the literary establishment at the college. Darrow senior graduated in 1905 and was instrumental in establishing the Princeton University Press. He ran the press from 1905 to 1917 in a kind of loose partnership with Scribners; upon giving up the Princeton job, he joined the latter firm in an advisory role. The Darrow connection makes a fine association for Fitzgerald's first novel, with its Princeton-educated protagonist.

        Lettre autographe signée adressée à Maurice Levaillant

      Very long signed autograph letter written by Marcel Proust addressed to Maurice Levaillant, written in black ink and accompanied by his envelope with the mention "personal" of the hand of Marcel Proust. An amusing shell of the author on this same envelope, which indicates "au Figao (sic)".Some underlining by Proust's hand.On December 10, 1919, a few months before the writing of this letter, Proust completes his quest for the Grail: In the shadow of the young girls in flowers receives the Goncourt prize. With six votes against four, the "old" author caps his young competitor Roland Dorgelès whose promising wooden crosses were favored. "The prize brought to Proust that sudden glory which he had craved for thirty years. The next day there were twenty-seven articles in the papers, and the hundred were passed before the end of January. (George D. Painter, Marcel Proust, 1904-1922: The Maturity Years , Paris, Mercure de France 1965). But the articles are not all laudatory: Proust, who is not a veteran, is reproached for his reward, and one can even imagine that the awarding of the prize to the author of Les Jeunes filles is the fruit of a plot. extreme right-wing politics orchestrated by Léon Daudet, member of the jury and friend of Proust. The writer, anxious about his media image, then solicits articles from the press, just as he does with Maurice Levaillant, a literary columnist at Le Figaro . Three letters known to this addressee, dated respectively January 24, January 25 and February 9, 1920, trace the workings of the claims and expectations of Marcel Proust.In this letter dated February 9, 1920, Marcel Proust informs Maurice Levaillant of his reactions to the article entitled "The Goncourt side" he devoted to it and which was published the day before.The writer first explains to the journalist that after trying to reach him by phone he moved in person to the offices of Figaro , "for the first time since the death of Calmette! "To meet with him. The narrative of these wanderings shows how much Proust, then subject to the disease that compels him to remain bedridden, gives importance to the articles devoted to him.The decor being planted, Proust addresses to his colleague warm thanks: "I read your article" On the side of home Goncourt "and I am very grateful [...] I found more very nice things . " Yet immediately the sentence falls: "But in spite of that let me tell you that I was a little disappointed. » ; Proust disappointed explains to Levaillant "If you browse your article, as the reader will do, you will see that he seems not to be in favor. " The prolific sender confirms to his addressee that he wants to explain to him the reasons for his disappointment "by word of mouth" : "We would not leave it if we entered by correspondence in this discussion. " However, Proust then launches into a long explanation, reproaching Levaillant half-heartedly for not having exploited the laudatory articles about him that he had advised him to quote: "I will not linger to regret that you do not" have quoted none of the articles I sent you, nor mine on Flaubert. "This sentence shows the dexterity with which Marcel Proust worked in the shadows, real conductor, providing its corresponding equipment necessary for writing an article that he expected a lot.This letter is also a valuable testimony of the esteem of Marcel Proust to Jacques Riviere, who had also published a laudatory note about the Prix Goncourt for his colleague in the NRF January 1, 1920, describing the author of Young girls 'more rejuvenating' novelists. The critic repeats a month later, signing a much longer and more elaborate article entitled "Marcel Proust and the Classical Tradition". It is precisely this dithyrambic chronicle quoted by Proust in our letter, urging Levaillant to have it published: "Given my desire that in one way or another Le Figaro give extracts from the article by Rivière in the Nouvelle Revue française of February 1 st [...] and my article on Venise des Feuillets d'art [...], are you sure you can give these excerpts? If you can not, who do you advise me to talk to? To the administrator? ... and asking him what ? "To enjoin Levaillant to carry out this mission well, Proust made it clear that it would be for him a second chance arguing that" failure would be the second largest for [him] as 1 ". Persuasive, he quotes the Aeneid of Virgil: "It would be the" alter aureus "which would present itself for me, Levaillant" deficient "" (" Primo avolso non-deficit alter aureus, and simili frondescit virga metallo ." the twig is torn off, another suddenly reborn, and the revived stem pushing leaves of the same metal.)). The story does not say if Levaillant yielded to this imaginary attempt of persecution.Through this letter, which remains unpublished to this day, appears an anxious Proust who tries to shape his image as a young laureate of the Prix Goncourt with the help of the ruthless machine that is the literary press of the 1920s.

        ORIGINAL SKETCH, A DRAWING OF THE STAGE SET IN A THEATRICAL PRODUCTION

      Circa 1920. Signed by Nielsen at the foot of the drawing. an original pen and pencil drawing with wash on heavy cream coloured stock. The stock roughly 360 by 265mm, signed at the bottom, the image itself roughly 270 by 175mm, now matted in blue boards and with protective plastic sleeve. A RARELY ENCOUNTERED DRAWING BY ONE OF THE FOREMOST ILLUSTRATORS OF THE EARLY PART OF THE 20TH CENTURY. The Nielsen drawing is quite an interesting piece. It seems possible that it might have been intended for use as a set design, but it is also a rather accomplished drawing which has very finished elements such as the figure at the far left and the figure facing. These incorporate Nielsen's best traits as an artist. The figure to the far right seems also to have a wash applied as the artist might have done while beginning his water colour work. A working figure underlies one of the finished ones, and the drawing is signed by Nielsen at the bottom of the plate.

        Rachel: A Play in Three Acts

      Boston: The Cornhill Company, 1920. First edition. Good. Original cloth backed boards with faded gilt to spine and gilt to cover; some fading and fraying to spine; shelf wear to boards; faint dampstain to bottom right corner of front board. Dampstain extends to two front free endpapers; textblock else clean and tight, with no marks affecting the play itself. Gift inscription on the first endpaper from one female activist to another. Octavo collates complete: 96, [8 blank]. A Good copy of this rare play, which has only come to auction three times and is not held by any institutions according to OCLC. Angelina W. Grimke, named after her activist great aunt, made history with her play Rachel. Considered the first play published and produced by an African American woman, and to have an all black case. Rachel was, as a result of this, "the first attempt to use the stage...in order to enlighten the American people relating to the lamentable condition of ten millions of Colored citizens in this free republic" (NAACP). First presented in 1916 at the Myrtill Minor Normal School, where Grimke taught English in Washington, DC, the play was soon after produced in New York and Cambridge. The granddaughter of a slave owner and a slave, in addition to being the descendant of one of the earliest and most outspoken intersectional feminists, Grimke was uniquely positioned to critique U.S. race relations at a time when the country sat poised between Emancipation and the Civil Rights Movement. This particular copy's gift inscription speaks to the play's ability to speak to women activists across race and class: "To Lillian Burkhart Goldsmith, A true, unselfish Mother to other Mothers' Daughters and Sons, I give this Book of Three Mothers lovingly and with deep regards. Charlotte L. P. Stearn. San Diego Civic Auditorium, Meeting of S.D. Womens Civic Center. April 27th, 1923." Lillian Burkhart Goldsmith was a Los Angeles businesswoman and philanthropist, best known for establishing one of the earliest chapters of the Girl Scouts in California, and for initiating a scholarship fund under her name for economically disadvantaged college students. An exceptionally scarce and important play, with a special feminist association. Good.

        MANUSCRIPT INDIAN STORIES BY "SEVEN STARS", M.H.SCOTT

      SCOTT, Malcolm .H. ["Seven Stars"], 15 (Indian) MT Company, Quetta Baluchistan 1923. 1920's .Fifteen bound volumes of manuscript stories, largely featuring Indian themes, after an initial volume of English stories. Approx 26 cm x 21 cm. with small variations, bound in maroon cloth , titled with several variations of text style in gilt to front boards, numbered by hand in white to the top of each spine. Each volume contains a bookplate for M.H.Scott. Included in volume one are a couple of letters, (pictured) and a typescript identifying the author and listing the stories. These seem to be the authors own record of his work, we think intended for publication. Some stories have the written names of what would seem to be Magazine publications on the last recto ; "Victorian June 1921"," Shamrock", "Flight Febry 1919" "Lamp" (etc) which might suggest submissions to or publication within the magazine in question. Some stories have added illustrations in the form of postcards, clippings, prints, and there are a couple of pieces of original Indian art. The last volume "The Seven Pagodas" is interesting as a travel journal, as it describes visits to Vijaynagar, Daulatabad, Dabhoi, Karli and Bhaja, Goa, Mysore, and lastly a chapter entitled " Lingiyats, Lings, and Legends". One volume has considerable damp staining, but the others are generally Very Good; tidy and easily readable. An interesting collection of Colonial Indian stories which offers further opportunity for research.
