        Charming portrait photograph by Resines, (Maria de la Asunción Solange, ('Marisol', b. 1911, later Countess of Odiel), her sister FRANCESCA, ('Paca', b. 1913) and brother JOSÉ, ('Pepito', 1917-1970), the children of Fernando de Mesia y Fitz-James Stuart, (1881-1948, Count of Mora, later Duke of Tamames), and of his Countess Marie Solange, (1877-1943, née de Lesseps)]

      1920 - unsigned, showing the children barefoot in short white clothes, inscribed on the mount, apparently in the Countess of Mora's hand, "Marie Sol 8 ans, Paca 7 ans, y Pepito Mora, 3 ans", 8¼" x 6" in mount 14¾" x 11", no place, Annotated on the verso that the inscription is by Queen Ena. Don Fernando was a nephew of Empress Eugénie (Queen Ena's godmother) on his father's side, and through his mother descended from the Dukes of Alba. His French-born wife descended from the famous engineer. The Count and Countess were staunch supporters of Queen Ena in the court rivalries of the 1920s and when she was in exile the Count sometimes helped out with hotel bills, saying "Ena has been very naughty". In 1933 Marisol was made Countess of Odiel and married Alfonso XIII's nephew the Infante José Eugenio, 1909-1966, (son of Ferdinand Maria of Bavaria and Spain, 1884-1958, by his first wife Maria Teresa, 1882-1912, the King's sister). Pepito succeeded his father as Duke of Tamames. From Queen Ena's private collection.

First US edition of Shackleton's account of the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition, the year following the first UK This copy inscribed on the front free endpaper; "To Miss Jacobs with best wishes from E.H. Shackleton 21st June 1920". Shackleton's own account of the infamous Endurance Expedition. In 1914, Shackleton and a 28-man crew had set out on the Endurance in the hope to be the first to cross the Antarctic continent ? an 1800 miles journey, sea to sea. However, in January 1915, due to exceptionally cold and icy conditions, the Endurance was trapped in ice. Ten months later, the pressure of the ice crushed the ship which sank, leaving Shackleton stranded some 1,600 km from any human activity. "Shackleton now showed his supreme qualities of leadership. With five companions he made a voyage of 800 miles in a 22-foot boat through some of the stormiest seas in the world, crossed the unknown lofty interior of South Georgia, and reached a Norwegian whaling station on the north coast. After three attempts, Shackleton succeeded (30 August 1916) in rescuing the rest of the Endurance party and bringing them to South America" (ODNB). Amazingly, all members of the Endurance party survived the ordeal.

        Constitution and Book of Laws, Made for the Government of the Universal Negro Improvement Association, Inc., and the African Communities League., of the World.

      New York: 1920 - Pamphlet, 12mo, original printed pale blue wrappers, stapled, 40 pp. Very slight aging; near fine and an exceptional copy. Marcus Garvey (1887-1940) was one of the most influential black leaders of the early 20th century. Unlike other black leaders, Garvey felt for blacks to really gain equality they would be better off going back to Africa. He was a strong champion of black separatism, feeling it was the only way to overcome racism, he even went as far as to propose alliance with white power groups, including the Ku Klux Klan (see An Appeal to the Soul of White America.). He felt the ends of the two groups were actually very similar. In 1914 Garvey founded the Universal Negro Improvement and Conservation Association and African Communities League, typically referred to as the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA). This organization would probably have close to 75,000 members and would be dedicated to black advancement and uplift. Garvey was inspired by the ideas of Booker T. Washington, especially the notion of black enterprise. This pamphlet presents the by-laws of Garvey's organization, and is very scarce. The OCLC locates only two copies of this printing. While this edition is supposed to follow one published in July 1918, it is not clear if that edition was published. OCLC. ANB. #100979.$1150 [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Somewhat later glassine cover. faint toning around the edges but an excellent copy. First edition, first impression, number 224 of 680 copies. This is the first book in English (partially) by Paris-based American expatriate writer Natalie Clifford Barney (1876-1972). Known as the "Amazon" of Paris, she was one of the most influential lesbian and feminist writers of the period. Her life inspired Radclyffe Hall's The Well of Loneliness, and her Paris salon at 20 rue Jacob was for 60 years the crucible of Left Bank culture (guests included Colette, Piere Louys, Mata Hari, Auguste Rodin, Ezra Pound, Jean Cocteau, T. S. Eliot, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Rainer Maria Rilke, Rabindranath Tagore, Nancy Cunard, Peggy Guggenheim, Caresse and Harry Crosby, Sylvia Beach and Isadora Duncan, to name but few). Barney promoted women's writing and formed an Académie des femmes in response to the all-male Académie française, while also supporting and inspiring male writers from Remy de Gourmont to Truman Capote.

        A Seattle Flapper's Jazz Age Scrapbook

      Seattle, WA 1920 - Oblong quarto (175 x 270 mm), 100 thick black pages. Contemporary purpose-made cloth scrapbook bound with a silk tie, title "photographs" in gilt to upper cover. Containing approximately 384 mounted original silver gelatin photographs (sized between 25 x 25 mm and 127 x 178 mm), a few with annotations indicating places, dates, and people; 9 real photo postcards; several newspaper clippings; and a greeting card. Some wear and bumping of the corners, a few photographs removed, occasional creases, splits, and chips to page edges, occasional damage to photographs. Very good condition. A wonderful scrapbook compiled by a young Seattle flapper named Lillian during the late teens, 1920s, and later, with nearly 400 photographs, many depicting adventures around the northwest coast. Lillian appears often in the album, a striking young woman with a boyish elegance, always impeccably dressed in up-to-date styles. In one of the earlier photos she appears in a late-Edwardian outfit with her hair up, but she apparently transitioned quickly to the flapper style, and appears in most of the images wearing classic 1920s fashions with her hair charmingly bobbed. In one small photo she is seen in an attractive Deco-style bathing suit and in others, on cruises and at the Queen City Yacht Club, she appears in yachting whites and sailor-style outfits. In the ukulele photo and some of the sailing shots she is even wearing trousers. Lillian and her friends appear to have been an outgoing bunch; included are photographs of musical events where Lillian plays the accordion, with a newspaper clipping showing their group performing at the yacht club. Friends appear in their nursing and Red Cross uniforms, with some photos taken on a children's ward. There are social gatherings; car trips along the Columbia River Highway, a cruise on the Princess Marguerite Steamship to Victoria, British Columbia (Lillian seems to have been fascinated by the icebergs); and numerous camping and fishing trips. A number of the photos were taken at what appears to be the family home in Seattle, a brand new Craftsman-style house, which would have been an important symbol of the family's upward mobility. Lillian and her family seem to have been animal lovers, as there are numerous photos of pets, including a boxer dog, a terrier, and cats with kittens - Lillian appears with the terrier in a series of images.There are also shots from around Seattle, including a series depicting huge drifts of snow, which may have been taken during the snowstorms of 1916, which left drifts of up to five feet, or 1920, when a storm deposited more than 18 inches. Some photos identify apartment buildings in Seattle and Los Angeles that are still standing today (220 Belmont Ave. in Seattle and 1616-1618 Main Street in LA), and there is a large, evocative photograph of a 1920s hardware store with stylish counter displays. Finally, the scrapbook continues into the 1930s and early 40s with a handful of photographs from that period scattered in amongst the other material. We have been unable to conclusively determine Lillian's last name, but it is possible that she was Lillian Christoffersen, a child of Norwegian immigrants who became a schoolteacher and was known to enjoy playing the accordion. Overall, this a fantastic photographic record of the life of a young woman and the changing fashions of one of the most exciting periods in American history. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Later state dust jackets are distinguished by the substitution of "by the author of 'The House of Mirth'" for a six line announcement of the Columbia (Pulitzer) Prize (which the book won in 1921). The two earlier states of the dust jacket are differentiated by the author of the review blurbs on the rear panel, with one being a quotation from Percy Lubbock and the other an excerpt from an article by William Lyon Phelps. In his bibliography, Garrison explains that "evidence suggests that bounds copies of the first Appleton printing were imported for sale in England, in lieu of an English printing or issue" and notes that it was customary for Appleton to distinguish between its English, Canadian, and "Colonial" editions (this copy has no such distinction.) Furthermore, the two earlier versions of the dust jacket likely reflect the publisher's intention to cater to its respective marketplaces, as Phelps was an American reviewer for The New York Times, and Lubbock was an English essayist. Neither author would have garnered much support outside of his home nation. Indeed, Sarah Baldwin of E. Wharton & Co. argues that the Lubbock jacket was produced for copies exported for sale in England. Originally published serially in the Pictorial Review in 1920, The Age of Innocence is Wharton's twelfth novel. It tells the story of Newland Archer and his fiancé May Welland as they prepare for their upcoming marriage, a joyous occasion that is threatened by the appearance of the bride's dramatic cousin Countess Ellen Olenska. Like many of Wharton's novels, The Age of Innocence features the upper-class society of New York City in the 19th century. Although she moved to Paris in 1913 and spent much of the remainder of her life in France, Wharton notably continued to write about New York City and its social elite and drew much inspiration from her own childhood experiences living on Washington Square Park. Interestingly, Wharton revives some of this novel's characters, including Mrs. (Catherine) Manson Mingott, Sillerton Jackson, Mrs. Lemuel Struthers and Henry van der Luyden, in her 1924 set of novellas Old New York. Notably, The Age of Innocence won the 1921 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, making it the first book by a female author to win the prestigious award. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Poems : With an Introduction by Siegfried Sassoon

      Chatto & Windus, 1920. 1st edition. Hardcover. The original red cloth is in good condition, slightly puckered in a few places, and slightly paled at the spine and across the top inch of the rear board, but the printed paper label on the spine is completely intact. The pages are very clean indeed, a little light browning to the rep, fractional spotting on pp ii and iii, very small ink initial from 1921 on the fep, a bookplate on the fpd of Anthony Hobson, one of the most distinguished book-collectors and bibliophiles of the 20th century. Unusually, the tissue guard over the frontispiece photograph of the author (the last such photograph taken of him, in Hastings in 1918) has not browned the title page. Posthumously published, this fragile book is generally considered to be the most important collection of poems from the First World War, even more than those of Siegfried Sassoon, who championed Owen's work and contributed the famous introduction to this volume.

"Logisch-kombinatorische Untersuchungen über die Erfüllbarkeit oder Beweisbarkeit mathematischer Sätze nebst einem Theoreme über dichte Mengen",Videnskapsselskapet Skrifter, I. Matematisk-naturvidenskabelig Klasse, 4: 1–36. $1500.00 This paper proves the Loewenheim-Skolem Theorem, a central theorem in mathematical logic. “The Löwenheim-Skolem theorem is a fundamental result in model theory which states that if a countable theory has a model, then it has a countable model. Furthermore, it has a model of every cardinal number greater than or equal to (aleph-0). This theorem established the existence of "nonstandard" models of arithmetic. The Löwenheim-Skolem theorem establishes that any satisfiable formula of first-order logic is satisfiable in an (aleph-0) domain of interpretation. Hence, aleph-0 domains are sufficient for interpretation of first-order logic.” WolframMathWorld. Shipping: $8.00 domestic, $40.00 international. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Le côte de Guermantes

      First edition on ordinary paper, falsely stated third edition.Handsome autograph inscription from Marcel Proust to André Salmon.Two small lacks to the spine, skillfully and discreetly repaired. Retaining the double errata leaf.This copy is in a full black morocco box, the interior lined with khaki green sheep by Goy & Vilaine.Dans ses "Souvenirs sans fin", Salmon relate les circonstances de cette "rencontre" improbable entre deux univers littéraires qui se sont peu côtoyés, la bohème des Montparnos et les salons aristocratiques que fréquentait Proust :"Si je n'ai pas connu Proust, nous avons correspondu.C'est lui qui vint à moi, de la façon la plus exquise et aussi la moins attendue.Je venais de donner à la Nouvelle Revue Française (mars 1920) une fable réaliste: "Le Mannequin d'acajou", quelque chose dont je n'aurais jamais soupçonné que cela pût séduire l'observateur, le féroce adorateur, oui subjugué et méprisant, de la duchesse de Guermantes, Oriane, haïssable créature digne de l'exposition publique. (...) Marcel Proust m'écrivit dès aussitôt sa lecture de Mannequin d'acajou. Il m'offrirait aussi de ses livres, avec de précieuses dédicaces. Sans doute ai-je répondu à Marcel Proust. Je ne lui ai pas rendu visite. Correspondre avec lui comptait pour moi. Je n'ai pu me résoudre à me rendre à son chevet (...) et, surtout, à m'asseoir parmi tant d'autres dont les délectations ne furent jamais les miennes. Bien entendu pas question d'aller joindre Marcel Proust à minuit, au Ritz où je suis peu connu du personnel.Ai-je eu tort? en tout cas, Marcel Proust ne m'en garda pas rancune. Il put m'avoir bien compris, deviné. Non seulement il m'écrivit encore, mais il écrivit à d'autres dans l'intention de me servir. "En effet, à la suite de la publication de cette nouvelle Proust proposa le nom de Salmon avec celui de Rivière pour l'obtention des deux bourses Blumenthal, malheureusement Salmon avait déja atteint l'age limite et ce fut André Thérive qui obtint la seconde bourse. André Salmon n'apprendra ce soutien qu'en 1951 en lisant dans la Revue de Paris des lettres inédites de Proust à E. Jaloux: "Je détache celle qu'à mon propos il eut la gentillesse d'écrire, en grelottant de fièvre (...):"Votre conclusion semble donc être Salmon, ce qui est d'ailleurs celle à laquelle je m'étais arrêté avec Gide. Je trouve que la raison qu'on a fait valoir (le prix lui permettra de ne pas faire de journalisme) est très mauvaise. Mais le talent est une raison suffisante. (...) ". (Cf. A.

        24 ff. in-8 e 2 ff. in-4, di autografi vergati inchiostro, non firmati, in francese, indirizzati al critico letterario Frédéric Lefèvre. S.l. e s.d. (1920 circa).

      1920. Eccezionale assieme di note autografe del Papini sulla letteratura, sul ruolo dello scrittore e sul suo romanzo di maggior successo ''Un uomo finito'' (1912), stilate in occasione di una intervista per ''Une heure avec'', rubrica giornalistica curata dal Lefèvre e poi destinata a diventare una collana di pubblicazioni. In una decina di fogli, vergati in chiara grafia solo al recto, Papini espone ciò che ha voluto fare scriovendo ''Un Uomo finito'', di cui ricorda le numerose riedizioni, traduzioni, e il successo su vasta scala : ''dégoûtée de la boursouflure de D'Annunzio''. Ideò : ''un livre qui serait une mise à point de mes expériences, un confession et un défi. Je voulais réaliser ce que Leopardi avait rêvé : Histoire d'une âme. C'est à dire les aventures, les combats, les victoires, et les déboires d'un pur esprit. Un ''Roman cérébral - sans femmes et sans intrigues, sur le plan purement ''intellectuel''. Nei restanti ff. affronta diversi temi anticipandone l'oggetto in alto a destra sul recto del foglio: Littérature et religion: lo scrittore cattolico è ''le véritable apôtre moderne dans l'Europe paganisée'' . Littérature française presque toujours ''enseignante'': Papini cita una quindicina di autori da Montaigne a Gide. - Deux espèces d'écrivains : compie una distinzione tra ''infermiers'' che forniscono ''des produits pour oublier, pour assassiner les temps'' e i ''dompteurs'' che fanno soffrire cercando ''de transformer en hommes les animaux'' - Écrivain : ''la conscience de l'humanité'' - Révolution : ''''la seule révolution véritable serait un changement de l'âme humaine. La suppression de l'égoïsme''. - Forme et contenu: Papini cita i maestri e i pensatori che hanno influenzato la sua formazione (Platone, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Carducci, Machiavelli, Dante..), infine parla dei suoi libri ''Crepuscolo dei filosofi'' e ''Storia di Cristo''. Importante raccolta di pensieri e riflessioni del celebre poeta, narratore e saggista italiano (Firenze 1881-1956).
