        Sleeping Beauty.

      London: William Heinemann, 1920. Signed limited deluxe edition. Quarto, original half vellum over cream boards, pictorial endpapers, top edge gilt. One of 625 numbered copies signed by the illustrator Arthur Rackham. Printed on English hand-made paper with an additional color plate. Illustrations: 25 full page silhouettes, comprising 9 in color (frontispiece and 4 double plates)--and 16 in black (including 4 double illustrations); one mounted colored plate; silhouette head-and tail-pieces and other silhouettes throughout the text, in black. In very good condition. "Rackham's fanciful imagination gave his illustrations instant recognition, and his dedication to illustration kept him in the public eye for 30 years" (Hodnett, 233). Like his Cinderella (1919), The Sleeping Beauty relied "almost wholly for [its] effect on silhouette... Rackham [was] a master of the medium, being able to evoke character and humor by profile and gesture alone, and allowing the two-dimensional effect of his pen work to lead the reader through the book and keep the story going" (Hamilton, 118).

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED FROM VICTOR CAMPBELL TO FELLOW EXPEDITION MEMBER SILAS WRIGHT.

      - TERRA NOVA EXPEDITION. January 28, 1920. Autographed note from Victor Campbell to "Silas" Wright, responding to a question about the time kept by the Northern Party in comparison with the Main Party, even though they had been in different time zones. Lieutenant Victor Campbell was First Officer on Scott's Terra Nova Expedition. After arriving in Antarctica his role was to lead an Eastern party of six men to explore and carry out scientific work in King Edward VII Land, to the east of The Barrier (known today as the Ross Ice Shelf). On the 26th of January 1911, Campbell's party left on the Terra Nova. After failing to find a suitable landing site on the King Edward VII Land shore, Campbell decided to sail to Victoria Land. On its return westward, Terra Nova encountered Amundsen's expedition camped in the Bay of Whales, an inlet in the Barrier. After returning to Cape Evans and informing Scott of Amundsen's location, Campbell's party was renamed the Northern Party and set off again, sailing northwards and landing at Robertson's Bay, near Cape Adare. They built a hut and wintered at Cape Adare but due to the sea ice conditions were unable to fulfill much of their intended explorations scheduled for the summer of 1912. In January of 1912, Terra Nova returned from New Zealand, and transferred the party of Campbell, Raymond Priestley, G.M. Levick, G.P. Abbott, H. Dickason, and F.V. Browning to Evans Cove, 400 km south of Cape Adare and 320 km northwest of Cape Evans. However, they only had sledging provisions for six weeks with the intention of completing the geological work in a couple of weeks. After the work was done they were left with rations for about four weeks. It was not anticipated the ship would have trouble picking them up as arranged in February, but the Terra Nova could not reach them due to heavy pack ice. Unable to connect with their ship, the Northern Party was forced to winter in Antarctica yet again. They built an ice cave on Inexpressible Island where they spent the winter in miserable conditions, supplementing their rations by killing scarce seal and penguins. On the 30th of September 1912, they set off for Cape Evans, finally arriving on the 7th November after crossing more than 320km of sea ice. After learning of the death of Scott and the entire Polar Party, as the senior remaining Naval officer, Campbell assumed command of the Terra Nova Expedition for its final weeks.

        THE RIME OF THE ANCIENT MARINER In Seven Parts

      London: George G. Harrap, 1920. Deluxe edition. Stunning work of art. Quarto. 9 3/4 in (25 cm) tall; unpaginated. No date, circa 1920. Printed by H. & J. Pillans & Wilson, Edinburgh. Fine binding in olive green morocco with bright gold-stamped ornamentation, lettering and jewel-toned accents to front cover; bright gold-stamped illustrations and letters to spine. Hand sewn headbands. Top edge gilt; others untrimmed. As befitting Coleridge's dramatic epic poem, Willy Pogany has extensively gilt tooled the spine and front cover with pictures including a ship of color leather inlays and has fully decorated every page. To paraphrase Vadeboncoeur, "Willy Pogany's art nouveau masterpiece. The large format allowed Pogany to pull out all the stops. Each page is at least two colors, sometimes with a gilt plate and usually an intricate border added. Extra-elaborate initials started each page, with simply ornate capitals for the beginning of each line. An illuminated title page, 20 tipped-in color plates, the second color added to the black and white plates, the flowing calligraphic text, and the numerous pen & ink drawings throughout make this special." Tight binding. Square corners. Fine tipped-in plates. Heavy stock, cream pages largely clean and unmarred with no bookplate, writing, salient marks, or tears; no loose pages. Clear protective cover. Crown and top corners chafed, rear cover with minor scratch, pastedowns with outer edges glue-toned, blanks foxed, pages and edges with intermittent light foxing, opening pages with light crease. Well-preserved, finely bound, epic poem lavishly illustrated by Willy Pogany. Vadeboncoeur, bpib online. Rarebookhub online. Very good+. No Jacket as issued.

        IL DECAMERON

      Chelsea: Ashendene Press, 1920. ONE OF 80 PAPER COPIES FOR SALE (of 105 printed). There were six additional copies on vellum (according to Hornby's bibliography; Franklin says there were 10 such copies). More than seven years in production (owing partly to World War I), this elegant folio, like other large format Ashendene books, is sumptuous without being self-consciously grandiose. The strengths of the press are highlighted here: thick, creamy paper, elegant typeface and initials, and a stately page with vast margins. With one of the smallest press runs among the later Ashendene books, it is printed entirely in Italian (including even the colophon), a fact that did not prevent a copy from being destroyed in 1927 by the US post office in Kansas because of its immoral content. Because of their size and generally fragile materials, the large format linen-backed Ashendene books are now difficult to find except in unflattering condition. The binding here has done its job of protecting the text block admirably, and the contents are as fresh as the day they left the press.. 419 x 298 mm.

        RUBÁIYÁT OF OMAR KHAYYÁM

      London: George G. Harrap & Co, ca. 1920. This is an attractively bound and illustrated edition of an enduring classic involving a Persian text, an English translator, and a Hungarian illustrator. The text is an uncertain but beautiful amalgam of the Medieval and the 19th century. Although we know that Omar Khayyám was an 11th century astrologer and mathematician, we are less certain about his poetic accomplishments, and very unsure if the text here was his work. What we do know is that the poetry is early, that it may have been Omar's, that it was translated into English in 1859 by Edward FitzGerald (1809-83), and that this lush and evocative translation has become a widely acclaimed work whose popularity has endured to the present day. First published anonymously, this translation is the chief work of FitzGerald, whose great wealth permitted him to devote his entire adult life to literature, especially translation. The ethereal illustrations are the work of Hungarian artist Willy Pogany (1882-1955), who immigrated in 1914 to America, where he found success as an illustrator and set designer known particularly for his depictions of exotic locales and ancient times. In addition to illustrating such works as "The Arabian Nights" and "The Golden Fleece," Pogany designed sets for the Metropolitan Opera and Broadway productions.. 214 x 132 mm. (8 3/8 x 5 3/8"). [56] leaves. Fine dark blue morocco, gilt, by Bayntun-Riviere, large mandorla on upper cover, raised bands, spine compartments with snake and chalice centerpiece, gilt titling, gilt-rolled turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Leaves with frames and ornaments in sea green, and 16 color illustrations mounted on leaves, all by Willy Pogany. A few faint spots of foxing to first and last couple of leaves, otherwise A VERY FINE COPY, clean, fresh, and bright internally, and in an unworn binding.

        THE STUDENT'S GIRL

      n.p.: Privately Printed, 1920. Three-quarters leather and cloth, gilt title, t.e.g., decorated end-papers, head- and tail-bands. Some mild rubbing to extremities and occasional spotting inside. An unusual item in very good condition.. Unpaged. Carbon copy and typescript, with some minor corrections in what is presumably the typist's hand. This work is something of a mystery; set in the latter days of the Restoration, it concerns the amorous adventures of Fredrick Hombert, a young man from Besancon who came to Paris to study law, and of his love affair with the grisette Berneretta. The setting and tone place it in the tradition of the picaresque romance of Parisian life, of which Charles-Paul de Kock was a popular writer. The American Antiquarian Society holds a copy of a risque work by de Kock of this title, published in English in New York in 1844. Whether this copy is derived from that is unknown; what can be told from the quality of the binding and the labor that went into this production, is that it was some sort of labor of love by or for a person of no small means. The date is uncertain; the paper's watermark shows it to be Old Tabard Bond paper, which was made by the R. C. Kastner Company of New York c. 1918; approximately the last quarter of the book is typescript, on lightweight / onion-skin paper.

        Album of photographs relating to service with the Wana Column, September 1920 to February 1921.

      Waziristan: , 1920-1. Landscape folio photograph album (365 x 270 mm). Original green cloth, front board gilt-lettered "Wana Column", cloth hinges, manufacturer's ticket of W. Johnson and Sons to the rear pastedown. 21 matt silver gelatin prints, all approx. 240 x 295 mm, one measuring 150 x 207 mm, and 84 original photographs, approx. 60 x 110 mm, mounted on stiff card leaves rectos and versos. 3 further group officer portraits and a print of the Taj Mahal laid in, variably faded and marked. Cloth rather mottled, one of the group portraits (Wana Column Staff) rather faded along edges, probably from the imposition of a frame, otherwise only trivial marginal mottling and fading to the professional photo graphs, the snaphots slightly faded in the main, but the images remaining very much distinct and crisp. Very good condition overall, the Holmes prints retaining their rich tonal contrasts. Superb photograph album documenting the British reoccupation of Wana and the end of the 1919-20 Waziristan campaign in over 80 intimate original snapshots, supplemented by a run of atmospheric professional photographs from Holmes's souvenir series, "With the Wana Column", and several group officer portraits, all meticulously captioned and forming an exceptionally rich portrayal of British operations in the region which from the First World War to Independence "dominated events on the North West Frontier, politically and military" (National Army Museum, online). "British photographer Randolph Bezzant Holmes (1888-1973) learned the art of photography from his father William Dacia Holmes who opened the Holmes Studio in Peshawar in 1889. Randolph Holmes took over the business from his father and operated the studio as Randolph Bezzant Holmes Co. until 1947" (Duke University, online). He seems to have served as a semi-official photographer for the British Army in India, photographing the Third Anglo-Afghan War in 1919 and accompanying a number of further expeditions, as here in Waziristan. His impressive photographs depict the progression of the Wana Column from Jandola, through the Shahur Tangi gorge to Haidiar Kach and Sarwekai camps, thence to Dargai Oba, Rogha Kot, and finally Wana, with photographs of the fort, environs, Wazir hostages, and three group officer portraits; the captions include informative details regarding the landscape, conditions, British engagements with the Wazirs, and indicate the neighbouring stations in each direction en route. The original snapshots are a fascinating illustration of the various, often competing aspects of British strategy after the Forward Policy. Numerous photographs taken at Sarwekai and environs record negotiations between Wazir tribesmen and British officers, including the "Pol. Officer", at the time James A. O. Fitzpatrick, a man viewed with suspicion by Lord Rawlinson, who considered him to have "the mind of a Mahsud", that is, excessively sympathetic to tribal interests (Marsh, Ramparts of Empire: British Imperialism and India's Afghan Frontier, 1918-1948, online). The photographer seems to have paid a great than usual degree of attention to the local population, with additional photographs of Mahsud levies, a Wazir jirga and of Wazirs paying fines in cattle. Tribal diplomacy and coercion were in the end something of a sideshow to the use of force. Further photographs depict Sarwekai aerodrome and the RAF biplanes which bombed the Mahsud villages into temporary submission, leaving them unable to assist the Wana Wazirs, the picquets constructed along the road to Wana, views and operations "on the Mahsud side near Ladha", together with ten photographs captioned "Punitive measures: Destruction of a Village" and depicting the various means of destruction, including explosives and manual dismantlement. The final four photographs, depicting the aftermath of a Mahsud ambush on a convoy, evoke the intractability of a region where "even in peacetime [British] forces were required to act as if on operations" (Tripodi, Edge of Empire: The British Political Officer and Tribal Administration of the North-West Frontier, 1877-1947, p.193). After the Waziristan campaign, it was decided to locate the main garrison of Waziristan at Razmak, manned by a brigade twice the size of a usual brigade and with six battalions of supporting arms. In 1936 renewed unrest among the Wazir tribes again boiled over into active resistance, which the British took three years to suppress, never capturing the leader, Fakir Ipi.

        American Red Cross, Greek and Russian Refugees in Turkey in 1920-1922. [our title]

      Hardcover. Very Good. Approximately 750 photographs in four albums. All except 16 photos are uniformly-sized and fit in the four windows (8 x 5.5cm.) on both sides to the 24 leaves in each album; a few windows are empty. The other 16 photos are larger and mostly mounted at the beginning and ends of the albums. Good quality photos with decent detail. Perhaps 20% of the photos are captioned, either individually or as groups. The four oblong albums (25 x 19cm.) are intact with covers scuffed and one backstrip missing. The compiler of these albums appears to have been an American Red Cross worker or official who was in the Middle East and involved with Greek and Russian refugees. The first three albums are generally focused on those issues although there are some photos of other subjects. The fourth album is entirely uncaptioned and contains less interesting photos appearing to record a trip starting in Constantinople, briefly touching Greece, and then at Pompeii and elsewhere in Italy. Laid in one of the albums are two copies (one typed and the other a differently formatted typed carbon copy) of a 3-4 page report titled: "File 181. U.S.S. Overton No. 239. Diary; Mersina, Turkey. A Trip by Major Davis and Mr. Whittemore to Antioch, Syria." The carbon copy is initialed at the end "C. C. D." [probably Major Charles Claflin Davis who served as Director of the American Red Cross in the Far Eastern Base (Constantinople, Smyrna, Lemnos, etc.) from 1920-1923].

        The Letters

      Boston: The Atlantic Monthly Press,, 1920. Edited by his son Henry James. In two volumes. Illustrated. 2 volumes, octavo. Original blue cloth, paper label to spines lettered and ruled in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut. With the dust jackets. Photographic frontispieces with tissue guards, 13 plates and tailpiece illustrations. Small bookplate to front pastedowns and contemporary ownership inscription of Josephine B. Crane to front free endpapers. Spines of dust jackets a little faded and a few minor nicks to spine ends, one small archival repair to jacket spine of vol. II; a fine set in excellent dust jackets. First edition, first printing, of a selection of James's correspondence, published to "throw the strongest light" on the celebrated philosopher's life and writings. A contemporary reviewer for The North American Review judged that the letters were "rich in their concise and accessible condensations of James's profounder convictions" (Gilman, p. 415). This set was given to American socialite and patron of the arts, Josephine B. Crane, by a friend for Christmas, 1920. Crane is remembered primarily as a co-founder and original trustee of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. She was also a key benefactress of the elite Dalton School, which derived its name from the Crane family estate located in Sugar Hill, Dalton (the address which appears on the bookplates).

        A Voyage to Arcturus

      London, Methuen & Co., 1920 [first edition, first issue]. Octavo, [viii] (first leaf blank), 303, [1] (colophon), 8 (publisher's catalogue) pages. The catalogue is undated, but the first page contains Einstein's 'Relativity - The Special and the General Theory', the first edition of which appeared in August 1920. It went into at least two more editions before year's end. Details of specific editions appear as a matter of course in this catalogue, so presumably this listing is for the first edition of the Einstein. Red cloth with gilt lettering and double rules on the spine, and blind lettering and a single-rule frame on the front cover; bottom edges uncut; cloth lightly stained, marked and bubbled, with the spine slightly faded; extremities a little bumped and rubbed, with minimal wear to the head of the rear hinge; a contemporary newspaper cutting (175 x 50 mm) of a review of the 1946 Gollancz edition is mounted on the front pastedown; ownership details on the front flyleaf; 'Original publication' written in ink on the verso of the title page (and both words and the printed publication details are doubly underlined in ink); trifling signs of use (top corner crease to two leaves; tiny stain to the top edge, impacting very slightly on the top margin of three leaves; minimal light foxing to the leading and bottom edges); a very good copy. Lindsay's novel, now considered a seminal work of science fiction, was not a commercial success, as the review (from the Adelaide 'Advertiser' of 4 January 1947) points out at some length. Even the 'venturesome, unorthodox Mr. Gollancz' reckoned he was taking a punt in reprinting it. When he read it, he 'welcomed it as a work of genius, if a minor one, and now, when, as he says, the public will apparently buy anything labelled fiction, he is taking a chance on people welcoming a second chance of buying' it. Gary K. Wolfe, in his work on David Lindsay (Starmont House, 1982), states that 'Out of a press run of 1430 copies, only 596 were sold', making a strong case for an upper limit to the number of copies comprising the first issue.

Nr. 111 von insgesamt 400 Exemplaren (Die ersten 150 Ex. kamen nicht in den Handel.). Textheft von Gotthard Jedlicka: Henry de Toulouse-Lautrec und Yvette Guilbert. Jedes Blatt trägt auf der Rückseite den Vermerk der Nummer bei Delteil (Loys Deltail, le peintre-graveur illustré. Bd. II, 1920, Paris.). Die Blätter erschienen 1894 u. 1898 in 2 Mappen in Paris- Yvette Guilbert (1865-1944) französische Sängerin (Sopran) und Schauspielerin. Yvette Guilbert arbeitete zunächst als Verkäuferin im Pariser Warenhaus Printemps und als Kunstmodell und nahm daneben Gesangs- und Schauspielunterricht.Schnell zu Erfolg gekommen, trat sie im Moulin Rouge und im Berliner Wintergarten auf. Sie beeindruckte laut zeitgenössischen Kritiken weniger durch ihre Sangeskunst als durch ihre Vortragsweise. Ihre Lieder ähnelten eher einem Sprechgesang wichtig waren dabei die pointierte Darstellung und die scharfen, oftmals zeitkritischen Texte. Weniger bekannt ist, dass sie in den 1920er und 1930er Jahren auch in einigen Filmen als Schauspielerin mitwirkte. Die bekanntesten sind Faust - eine deutsche Volkssage von Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau und Marcel LHerbiers Zola-Adaption LArgent. Außerdem verfasste sie zwei Bücher über die Belle Époque. Sie und ihr Ehemann Max Schiller waren mit Sigmund Freud in Briefkontakt Freud skizzierte dabei seine persönliche Deutung des "Phänomens Yvette Guilbert".
