        Night and Day

      New York: Doran, 1920. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine/very good. 1st American edition of her second book, mining Shakespeare's As You Like It. Near fine (edges slightly faded), in a very good jacket, faint shadow of a number on the spine, edgetears and corner chips, but no repair, and for this jacket, more pleasing than doing good in secret and being found out by accident. In answer to Albee's question, I'm afraid of Virginia Woolf. There's not enough space here, and I'm not smart enough, nor enough of a researcher to tell you much about her you don't already know, but I'll take my shot at stepping into the shoes of a great lady, and externally considering her for a paragraph attentive to outside events that invaded her inner peace and twisted her life, all because no one ever told her that detachment is the sure, and only, road to serenity She was entitled. Her mother was a Pre-Raphaelite model so she got her babeness by gene. Her father was a Sir of letters with a gigantic personal library, and as a result her home-schooled education was an erudite exhibition of late Victorian society (the way of the mouse, symbolic of industry in quiet places). At 13 her mother died and she crumpled into a (her first) nervous breakdown. She was 18 when the 20th century arrived, so she regrouped, laced her shoes tight and, like most of her generation, met it teeming with hope. But in the background, fate was already icing the stairs, and during the 20th century's first decade the dull were full of themselves, and the bright were full of doubt, so the wealth of the empires (amassed over 5 centuries) was trashed in the woodchipper of W. W. I. Virginia reeled, but she knew that a part of every process is only discipline, so she buffed-up with the competence of stout feminist instincts, and the resolve of The Little Engine That Could, became an exalted author and publisher, surrounded herself with a circle of brilliance, and pursued ideas for their own sake. Then the depression flipped her out, and W. W. II shook the ground beneath her feet (and a German bomb flattened her house), and the pressure inside her spirit began to build (you can hide the fire but you can't hide the smoke), and like the pressure in the atmosphere, she didn't sense it, but it was still there, at 15 pounds per square inch, and mistaking feeling for thinking (the undiagnosed bipolar), she guessed that 59 was old enough, and that coping might be the mesh through which real life escapes, so she spit the bit, channeled her inner Billy Joe McAllister, donned an overcoat, filled the pockets with stones, walked into the River Ouse, and never came back.

        Irish Fairy Tales : Illustrated By Arthur Rackham

      The First UK Trade Printing published by Macmillan & Co. (London) in 1920. The Book is in near Fine condition. Light pushing at the spine ends. Slight dulling of the gilt to the spine. Light offsetting to the end papers. Free from inscriptions and erasures. The fragile paper WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good+ or better condition. Some edge wear with nicks and a little creasing in places. Closed tears to the rear lower spine fold, rear flap fold and to the rear upper edge. Some tape reinforcement to the front flap fold and upper spine to the verso supporting closed tears. A little light creasing to the front panel. The wrapper presents very well and the Celtic design looks very striking in the removable brodart archival cover. Sixteen tipped-in color plates with captioned tissue guards and text illustrations in black and white by Arthur Rackham. In this book, Rackham broke new ground in the illustration of Irish literature. He had been persuaded to tackle Stephens's stories by Walter Starkie, who had vowed to give his uncle 'no peace' until he had agreed to illustrate them. In writing the stories, Stephens had attempted to create an Irish equivalent of The Arabian Nights, his own poetic retelling of the stories which existed in the oral tradition and in Gaelic texts, but which had not appeared accessibly in print. Rackham rose to the occasion, and his nephew's haunting of him was justified. The Dublin Independent was particularly warm in welcoming the collection, remarking: 'We read English tales with appreciation because pictures have familiarised us with English imagery. A Fenian tale lacks imagery because we have no art to give it colour and shape to what are presently only names. Some of Mr. Rackham's pictures are pure poems - they set you dreaming." (Hamilton, p. 128).'Rackham's two great books of the twenties were James Stephens' Irish Fairy Tales of 1920 and Shakespeare's Tempest of 1926. Beyond the softness of style and inventiveness, the most striking thing about the colour plates for Irish Fairy Tales is the felicitous and appropriate use of celtic borders' (Gettings, p. 143).Latimore and Haskell, p. 52. Riall, p. 138. Gettings, p.179. Hamilton, p. 185. A very scarce title to find with such attributes. More images are available on request. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.

        Flappers and Philosophers

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1920 New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1920. First edition, first printing. Publisher's dark green cloth (Bruccoli's "B" binding), lettered in blind to front board and lettered in gilt to spine. A very good copy with some light wear and fading to spine, a faint white mark (approx. 1-inch) to lettering on front board, spine slightly shaken at a few gatherings within text block, former owner signature in pencil to front free endpaper, otherwise clean. Overall, an attractive copy. Bruccoli A6.I.a. Flappers and Philosophers, the author's first collection of short stories, followed Fitzgerald's debut novel This Side of Paradise, which brought the twenty-four-year old author much critical and commercial fame. As per Scribner's sales tactics, each collection of short stories was scheduled to follow the publication of a novel, with the goal of the short story collection feeding off the popularity of its companion novel. Flappers and Philosophers contains 8 of the author's best early stories: "The Offshore Pirate," "The Ice Palace," "Head and Shoulders," "The Cut-Glass Bowl," "Bernice Bobs Her Hair," "Benediction," "Dalyrimple Goes Wrong," and "The Four Fists." In these pieces, Fitzgerald introduces his archetypal Jazz Age characters that would come to be collectively known as the Lost Generation: attractive, impulsive young women (flappers) and licentious, nomadic young men (philosophers). . First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        View of Man Sitting] "At St. Paul's, N.Y.C"

      Manhattan, New York: 1920 - Original drawing. Titled in the image. Signed, titled and dated on the support sheet. 10 x 7 inches. Provenance: Part of a portfolio of original works given to the collector Natalie Williams on June 1, 1937 by Wall. Natalie Williams, was the sister-in-law of the Texas collector N.C. Matthewson of Marshall, Texas, and both were owners of the Made-Rite Company. She was a patroness of artists and an art donor to Texas A & M University.Bernhardt Wall was born in Buffalo, New York on Dec. 30, 1872. He studied at the Buffalo Art Student's League then moved on to study in New York under Henry Reuterdahl and also apprenticed under William Auerbach-Levy. Wall began a career as a lithographic illustrator in 1889 working primarily as a commercial artist in New York and Buffalo. He soon became known as the "Postcard King" and designed over 5,000 comic cards. The year 1915 marked a defining point in Wall's artistic career. Wall visited Colorado, Nevada and California making etchings of Indians, cowboys and major cities which were later published in a portfolio entitled, "Under Western Skies." These proved to be very successful and the artist shortly thereafter moved to California permanently. Wall continued to produce many fine etchings of the American West and by 1930 had also become a much respected historian of the region.Bernhardt Wall was unique in that he not only drew the etchings for his books, but he also printed and bound them. His books are in libraries and universities around the world including the British Museum, Library of Congress, the libraries of Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and Brown Universities. His works were also in the private collections of J. P. Morgan, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Henry C. Frick and Dr. N.C. Mathewson. Wall etched three sitting presidents of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt, Warren Taft, and Henry Coolidge. Other prominent individuals etched by Wall include Sam Houston, Mark Twain, Thomas A. Edison, Abraham Lincoln, and Andrew Jackson.Artist and historian, Bernhardt Wall (1872-1956) was a pioneer etcher and producer of fine press books who treated a vast array of subjects, including Texas and the Southwest. Historians of fine press printing have compared him to William Blake. This collection of Wall's scrapbooks, publications, and correspondence was built by collector Natalie Williams of Marshall, Texas.

        Bulgarski baladi, s sedem risunki ot Sirak Skitnik [Bulgarian ballads, with seven drawings by Sirak Skitnik]

      Sofia: Khemus, 1920. Octavo (22.5 × 17 cm). Original pictorial wrappers by Sirak Skitnik; 47 pp. Frontis portrait and seven leaves of illustrations by Sirak Skitnik. Small tear to upper spine extremity; discrete owner signature to title; overall still a very good copy. An important volume of Bulgarian Symbolist poetry by Traianov (1882-1945), a politician and poet who collaborated with noted Bulgarian modernist journals such as "Vezni" and "Zveno" and co-edited the Symbolist journal "Khiperion" in 1922-31. Having absorbed the influences of the Viennese boheme, Traianov went on to create a new brand of Bulgarian symbolism that expressed transcendental values, mystic experience and even revived a kind of Bulgarian religious messianism. This landmark collection was a particularly lavish affair, printed on better paper and illustrated with seven striking drawings by Sirak Skitnik. They reveal this Bulgarian avant-garde artist's characteristic fusion of Bulgarian folkloric motifs and avant-garde stylistic devices, such as abstraction and angularity. The cover features "expressionistically elongated nuns, haloed heads affectingly bowed, who stride through a serried landscape. The somber tenor of the stark figuration contrasts with the flowing lines of the sheaves being borne, and with the rich pattern of abstract striations that border the scene" (NYPL Catalog p. 26, fig. 24). Jacono 5. Rare, especially in such good condition. OCLC shows three copies in the United States, at Stanford, Ohio State, and NYPL (see their Digital Collection: http://digitalgallery.nypl.org/nypldigital/dgkeysearchresult.cfm?parent_id=1045057).

        Night and Day

      New York: Doran, 1920. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine/very good. 1st American edition of her second book, mining Shakespeare's As You Like It. Near fine (edges slightly faded), in a very good jacket, faint shadow of a number on the spine, edgetears and corner chips, but no repair, and for this jacket, more pleasing than doing good in secret and being found out by accident. In answer to Albee's question, I'm afraid of Virginia Woolf. There's not enough space here, and I'm not smart enough, nor enough of a researcher to tell you much about her you don't already know, but I'll take my shot at stepping into the shoes of a great lady, and externally considering her for a paragraph attentive to outside events that invaded her inner peace and twisted her life, all because no one ever told her that detachment is the sure, and only, road to serenity She was entitled. Her mother was a Pre-Raphaelite model so she got her babeness by gene. Her father was a Sir of letters with a gigantic personal library, and as a result her home-schooled education was an erudite exhibition of late Victorian society (the way of the mouse, symbolic of industry in quiet places). At 13 her mother died and she crumpled into a (her first) nervous breakdown. She was 18 when the 20th century arrived, so she regrouped, laced her shoes tight and, like most of her generation, met it teeming with hope. But in the background, fate was already icing the stairs, and during the 20th century's first decade the dull were full of themselves, and the bright were full of doubt, so the wealth of the empires (amassed over 5 centuries) was trashed in the woodchipper of W. W. I. Virginia reeled, but she knew that a part of every process is only discipline, so she buffed-up with the competence of stout feminist instincts, and the resolve of The Little Engine That Could, became an exalted author and publisher, surrounded herself with a circle of brilliance, and pursued ideas for their own sake. Then the depression flipped her out, and W. W. II shook the ground beneath her feet (and a German bomb flattened her house), and the pressure inside her spirit began to build (you can hide the fire but you can't hide the smoke), and like the pressure in the atmosphere, she didn't sense it, but it was still there, at 15 pounds per square inch, and mistaking feeling for thinking (the undiagnosed bipolar), she guessed that 59 was old enough, and that coping might be the mesh through which real life escapes, so she spit the bit, channeled her inner Billy Joe McAllister, donned an overcoat, filled the pockets with stones, walked into the River Ouse, and never came back.

        Flappers and Philosophers

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1920 New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1920. First edition, first printing. Publisher's dark green cloth (Bruccoli's "B" binding), lettered in blind to front board and lettered in gilt to spine. A very good copy with some light wear and fading to spine, a faint white mark (approx. 1-inch) to lettering on front board, spine slightly shaken at a few gatherings within text block, former owner signature in pencil to front free endpaper, otherwise clean. Overall, an attractive copy. Bruccoli A6.I.a. Flappers and Philosophers, the author's first collection of short stories, followed Fitzgerald's debut novel This Side of Paradise, which brought the twenty-four-year old author much critical and commercial fame. As per Scribner's sales tactics, each collection of short stories was scheduled to follow the publication of a novel, with the goal of the short story collection feeding off the popularity of its companion novel. Flappers and Philosophers contains 8 of the author's best early stories: "The Offshore Pirate," "The Ice Palace," "Head and Shoulders," "The Cut-Glass Bowl," "Bernice Bobs Her Hair," "Benediction," "Dalyrimple Goes Wrong," and "The Four Fists." In these pieces, Fitzgerald introduces his archetypal Jazz Age characters that would come to be collectively known as the Lost Generation: attractive, impulsive young women (flappers) and licentious, nomadic young men (philosophers). . First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

In 1916, Shlomo and his wife were exiled to Egypt by the Turkish rulers. They returned to the Land of Israel after the British captured the territory in 1918. Narinsky opened a studio in Paris, but Shlomo was arrested when the Nazis captured France. He was later exchanged for a German spy caught in Palestine after the intercession of David Ben-Gurion and Yitzchak Ben-Zvi. They returned to Israel, eventually moving to Haifa where Shlomo taught as a photography teacher. He died in 1960, relatively unknown." – [Web-source].

        Final Report of Gen. John J. Pershing, Commander-in-Chief American Expeditionary Forces.

      Washington: Government Printing Office, 1920 - Octavo. Publisher's black sand-grained skiver over heavy card presentation binding, title above the War Office Seal blocked in gilt to front cover within thick single gilt rule panel, similar panel to the lower cover; ad personam to Earl Haig, "Field Marshal The Earl Haig" blocked in gilt in the lower right front corner. Somewhat dry and a little rubbed particularly at the extremities, front joint a little cracked, consequently slightly open at the title page, text-block lightly toned, but overall very good. 16 large, coloured folding maps at the rear. First edition of Pershing's official report as C-i-C AEF covering concluding operations in World War I. This copy wholeheartedly inscribed by Pershing to Douglas Haig, who famously he would describe as 'the man who won the war': "To Field Marshal The Earl Haig, In Memory of our service together in the World War, and with sincere and lasting friendship, John J. Pershing, Washington, D.C.". It is difficult to imagine a more meaningful association. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
