First edition, second issue with inserted publisher's catalogue dated "1124." 1250 copies printed, this copy being among those comprising the first of several reissues of 650 to 750 sets of first edition sheets. Lindsay's masterpiece. "Lindsay's A VOYAGE TO ARCTURUS is one of the most extraordinary works of literature, let alone fantasy, ever written. In form and in some of its symbolic techniques it is highly indebted to the work of George MacDonald: but for sheer inventiveness and intensity of imagination its burns like some literary supernova." - Colin Greenland, Scottish Fantasy Literature, p. 153. "A classic allegorical romance in which the landscapes and inhabitants of the planet Tormance provide an externalization of the moral and metaphysical questions that preoccupied the author. Its incarnate theological system influenced Lewis's OUT OF THE SILENT PLANET (1938), and it also bears some similarity to George Macdonald's LILITH (1895), although it is very much a work sui generis." - Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 2-72. "Some of the imagery is borrowed from Norse mythology (Surtur and Muspel) but the metaphysics that is gradually elaborated is basically a transformed evolutionary theory that applies a harsh metaphorical Darwinism to the business of personal intellectual development.

Photographs.
1920. xx. <br /><br />This is a collection of 340 gelatin silver prints, in 5 x 7 format, of a safari undertaken by an American, probably in the 1920s. The photographs are no longer in any particular order, but through them we can trace the Great White Hunter's progress through the Suez Canal, down the Red Sea to Mombasa Kenya, up to Nairobi, then into the Serengeti on a hunting expedition organized by a travel company called Safariland. He was a bespectacled, jowly fellow, who appears in photographs taken at many different locations. There are also dozens of photos of street life and buildings in African cities and villages (as well as several scenes from Genoa, Italy, where the Great White Hunter apparently stopped enroute to Africa.) About 150 photographs document the slaughter that marked the climax of the expedition. The Great White Hunter, other whites, and African bearers pose with zebra, African buffalo, various species of African antelope, cheetah, rhino, game birds, and smaller game. One particularly horrific series of 22 photos documents the killing and dismemberment of an elephant, the Great White Hunter proudly posing at the end with two sets of tusks. Only two of the photos contain any clues as to the man's identity. One is an image of the American sculptor Frank Tolles Chamberlain inscribed to a "Mr. Lincoln." The second is a print measuring 6 x 2 1/2 inches (the only one in the collection not in 5 x 7 format. The back of the print is stamped, "Copyright. New Crystal Finish. The Owl. Lewiston Maine." Owl is a chain of drug stores operating in Maine since the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bernhardt, Sarah (eig. Marie Henriette Rosine Bernardt, 1844-1923, franz. Schauspielerin).
Belle-Île en mer um, 1920. 16,5 x 12 cm., alt auf Karton (26,5 x 21,5 cm) montiert. Schöne Aufnahme aus den letzten Lebensjahren der wohl bedeutendsten Schauspielerin des 19. und beginnenden 20. Jahrhunderts. Sarah Bernhardt präsentiert sich stolz neben einer Kanone auf ihrem Sommerwohnsitz einer alten Festung auf der Insel Belle-Île-en-mer vor der bretonischen Atlantikküste. - Bernhardt "gilt als die berühmteste Darstellerin ihrer Zeit und war einer der ersten Weltstars. Ein wesentlicher Teil ihrer künstlerischen Arbeit – und Voraussetzung für ihren weltweiten Ruhm – waren ausgedehnte Gastspielreisen. Mit ihrer eigenen Schauspieltruppe trat sie 1879 in London auf. 1880 folgte eine halbjährige Tournee durch 51 Städte der USA. 1881 gab sie Vorstellungen in Russland, Italien, Griechenland, Ungarn, der Schweiz, Dänemark, Belgien und den Niederlanden. Englands Königin Victoria und der russische Zar Alexander III. gehörten zu ihren Bewunderern. Sie galt als eine exzentrische, oft überspannte und launische Frau und hatte zahlreiche Liebhaber, darunter den Lebemann Charles Haas, den Schauspieler Jean Mounet-Sully sowie den Maler und Illustrator Gustave Doré. Bernhardt schuf sich durch ihre Exzentrik ein öffentliches Image: Sie stieg in einer Montgolfière auf in den Himmel über Frankreich und ließ Fotos verkaufen, auf denen zu sehen ist, wie sie in einem Sarg liegt und ihre Rollen studiert oder schläft. Ihre Wohnung beherbergte eine Menagerie heimischer und exotischer Tiere. Neben Romanen und Lustspielen schrieb sie 1907 ihre Memoiren (Mein Doppelleben). Damit inspirierte sie Marce … [Click Below for Full Description]

PERSHING, JOHN J.
Washington: Government Printing Office, 1920. FIRST EDITION. An outstanding presentation copy inscribed by Pershing: To M. le Maréchal Joffre with sincere esteem and affectionate regards, and with gratitude for his friendship and wise counsel. John J. Pershing Washington D.C. Pershing, who led the American forces in World War I, presented this book to his counterpart in the French military. Joseph Joffre was commander-in-chief of the French forces on the Western Front from the start of World War I until the end of 1916. He is most famous for regrouping the retreating allied armies to defeat the Germans at the strategically decisive Battle of the Marne in September 1914. In late 1916 he was promoted to Marshal of France and moved to an advisory role. In April 1917 Joffre led the French mission to the United States to secure America s entry into the war. He recommended that the Americans lead their own force in the conflict, as Pershing insisted, rather than being integrated into the existing commands. On the final day of the mission he met with Pershing, just named commander of the American Expeditionary Force, telling him that Pershing can always count on me for anything in my power. Joffre became head of the Supreme War Council in 1918, coordinating the Allied war effort from Versailles. This is Pershing s Final Report to Secretary of War Newton Baker, presenting his summary account of the events of the Great War. The work is lavishly illustrated with graphics and maps describing military action and maneuvers, organizational structures, and orders of battle. This classic w … [Click Below for Full Description]

Title page and 30 leaves each with a tipped on Vandyk photogravure with printed captions. Some spliting along the sides of the spine back strip, and an inch missing from the lower spine, all holding together well enough. Contents and photgravures all very good. Donald Mennie (1875/1876 - 1941) was a Scottish bussinessman and amateur photographer. He arrived in Beijing in 1899; how and why is unfortunately unknown. What is known, is that he first worked as an assistant in the firm of Mactavish & Lehman & Co in Beijing. After this, he joined the company of A.S. Watson & Co in Shanghai and eventually became the firm's managing director. In his photographs Mennie seemed to have tried to capture a romantic vision of 'antique China', featuring dusty caravans of horses or camels, old palaces and authentic street scenes, all in and around Beijing. Between 1914 and 1927 he published several books covering his photographic work, including The Pageant of Peking (1920), Glimpses of China (1920), China, North and South (1922) and The Grandeur of the Gorges (1926). By these publications his work became better known and after 1900 he became proposed as a member of the Royal Geographic Society and Pictures of Peking. Mennie spent the last ye … [Click Below for Full Description]

[RADICAL & PROLETARIAN LITERATURE] LE PRADE, Ruth (editor); SINCLAIR, Upton (introduction)
Pasadena: Upton Sinclair, 1920. Hardcover. Poems honoring socialist leader Eugene Debs by a variety of radical 20th century poets including Witter Bynner, Max Eastman, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Carl Sandburg, Siegfried Sassoon, Horace Traubel, and Israel Zangwill, many others. Sinclair contributed the foreword, along with letters from H.G. Wells and George Bernard Shaw (who states: "Clearly the White House is the only safe place for an honest man like Debs"). An interesting pair of copies inscribed to Gardner (1884-1968), acclaimed stage actress and the first actress to form her own production company. Moved by his circumstances and deeply influenced by his speeches, she visited him in prison in 1920, bringing him an autographed photo and beginning a correspondence that would last through the mid-1920's. In a December 21, 1920 letter, she writes: "Let me tell you that I was surprised to find my emotional self somewhat unaffected while I listened to you talk. I know the reason now. It is the same with you as it was with Epictetus, prison walls cannot confine the spirit -- the mind is ever free. So, in a way, I did not feel your plight as keenly as I would that of another who had little vision, little intelligence, little understanding about his body being so small a part of the real him that his confinement was of the physical order only." While the "special edition" of 500, with signed bookplate by Debs, appears with some frequency, inscribed copies of Debs and the Poets are genuinely uncommon. Two octavo volumes (18.75cm); maroon cloth, with titles stamped in gilt on sp … [Click Below for Full Description]

[DIORAMAS].
1920. 1920. A collection, complete in all its parts, of 12 individual hand-crafted, and numbered, three-dimensional landscaped scenes, or dioramas (all bases 163 x 95 x 10mm; the tallest insert 220mm), which are hand-painted throughout on all visible surfaces (including the oval bases, and sides) and composed of multi-layered scenery and characters which slot into the base together with exquisite detachable fishing rods with twine, floats and bait, landing birds, and even an angler's satchel with leather strap; the whole fashioned in wood and featuring a series of figures (adults and children) engaged in traditional rural pursuits of hunting, shooting and fishing; each signed on the base, in ink, by the maker Arthur Holmes, numbered, and dated 1920 throughout; all contained within a carefully constructed custom-made wooden slatted and lidded box with metal clasp (no longer functioning) and including internal compartments and trays with leather lifting tabs configured with outlines to indicate the storage plan. This lovingly, and painstakingly, hand-crafted personal artefact is testament to the great skill and patience of the creator and is a beautiful production that would not look out of place in a museum. Unfortunately we have no provenance to offer beyond the maker's (Arthur Holmes) signature throughout, as it originated from a provincial fair, with no associated history. It is tempting to speculate that the project was conceived as a diversional occupation undertaken by a First World War veteran. Such occupational therapies in arts and crafts were championed by specia … [Click Below for Full Description]
