        THE RESCUE

      1920. A Romance of the Shallows. London & Toronto: J. M. Dent & Sons, 1920. Original green cloth stamped in gilt, with dust jacket. First English Trade Edition (issued after the American edition and also after a 40-copy private issue of the English galley proofs). Begun in 1896, and in effect completing the trilogy begun with ALMAYER'S FOLLY and AN OUTCAST OF THE ISLANDS, "THE RESCUE was Conrad's albatross, the book which hung about his neck from the beginning of his writing career almost until the end of his life" [Cagle].~This copy is in the standard (primary) binding, with the spine lettering in gilt, with the front cover border in blind, and with the publisher's device blind-stamped onto the front cover. (There is a secondary, perhaps colonial, binding with black lettering and border, and with no front cover device.)~This is an unusually fine copy (spine gilt a bit brighter than usual for this book); the pictorial jacket, which unlike that of THE ROVER does not often turn up in presentable condition, is nearly fine as well -- with scarcely any soil or wear (just a few tiny nicks in the top edge, to be expected since the jacket stands a bit taller than the volume). Cagle A49b(2), binding "a"

        Souvenirs entomologiques. Études sur l'instinct et les moeurs des insectes. (Première-Dixième series). Édition définitive illustrée.

      - Paris, Delagrave, 1920-1924. Ten volumes in ten [and an 11th volume, titled "Sa Vie"]. Large 8vo (24.3 x 16.2 cm). Over 4,000 pages. Numerous plates and fine text engravings. Later half tree calf over marbled boards. Spines with five slightly raised bands; compartments rich gilt with entomological vignettes, and red morocco labels with gilt title. Marbled endpapers. Top edge red.= The definitive Jean Henri Fabre (1823-1915) and his major work, in fine bindings. "Fabre was a popular teacher, physicist, chemist and botanist. However, he is probably best known for his findings in the field of entomology, the study of insects, and is considered by many to be the father of modern entomology. Much of his enduring popularity is due to his marvelous teaching ability and his manner of writing about the lives of insects in biographical form, which he preferred to a clinically detached, journalistic mode of recording. In doing so he combined what he called 'my passion for scientific truth with keen observations and an engaging, colloquial style of writing'. His Souvenirs Entomologiques is a series of texts on insects and arachnids. He influenced the later writings of Charles Darwin, who called Fabre 'an inimitable observer'. Fabre, however, was a Christian who remained sceptical about Darwin's theory of evolution, as he always held back from all theories and systems. His special force was exact and detailed observation, field research, always avoiding general conclusions from his observations, which he considered premature" (Wikipedia). Added, in a near-matching binding (only the spine bands are slightly more pronounced, and the compartments plain) "La vie de J.-H. Fabre. Naturaliste. Suivie du répertoire général analytique des Souvenirs Entomologiques par le Dr. G.-V. Legros". This work, published in 1924, also by Delagrave, has a preface by Fabre himself, and his portrait. It was published by the Delagrave in the same year as the last volume of the "Souvenirs", and is bound with the original pictorial wrappers included. It contains xv + 439 pp., and 16 tissue-guarded, mostly photographic plates. Uncut. Fore edges somewhat spotted, otherwise clean. A very nice ensemble in excellent condition. Not in Nissen.

        The Countries and Tribes of the Persian Gulf.

      London, Harrison and Sons, 1919[-1920]. - Large 8vo. 2 vols. (12), 264 pp. (4), 265-643, (1) pp. With frontispiece and 8 photo-plates. Original grey cloth. First edition, second issue. - Includes chapters on the advent of Islam on the Gulf coast, the Portuguese era in Eastern Arabia, the Al-Bu-Said dynasty, a history of commerce in the Gulf, a description of the country and the pearl fisheries, as well as a chapter on the tribes of the Gulf, with an entry on the Al-Kowasim ("a powerful Maadic tribe occupying the sea ports on the Pirate coast") as well as on Beni Yas and their towns, "Abu Thabi and Debaye". - The author’s first appointment in Arabia was as Resident at Aden in 1867; he was later made Agent and Consul at Muscat before being promoted Consul General, first at Bagdad then at Zanzibar. This work was published posthumously by his widow from a remarkable archive of notes, "many of which were jotted down on odd bits of paper as he [Miles] rode through the desert on his camel". The book remains an authority on Omani history and provides a storehouse of knowledge for any reader interested in the Arabian Gulf. - Backs a little faded, with two small holes repaired. The final two lines of text on the title page have been removed by a previous owner; they would have included the note "Reprinted 1920", confirming the copy as part of the second issue. An extremely uncommon and desirable work. Rare, only two copies at auction within the last decades (the Peter Hopkirk copy, Sotheby's, 14 Oct. 1998, lot 989: £10,000). Diba, p. 45; cf. New Arabian studies II (1994), pp. 31–33. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Dada Almanach. Im Auftrag Des Zentralamts Der Deutschen Dada-Bewegung.

      1920 - Small 8vo. (183 x 132 mm). Original photo-illustrated card wrappers; pp. 159, [1], 8 b/w photo plates; ex-libris the National Art Library, V&A, with its neat de-accession stamp to the foot of the verso of the front wrapper; closed tear to the foot of p. 39, expertly repaired, light embrowning to the fore-edges, very light scattered spotting to the wrappers and the first and last few leaves, otherwise a very good copy. Provenance: "Austin Desmond" in pencil to inside of front cover, possibly the London 20th century art dealer. First edition. Published in the wake of the First International Dada Fair in Berlin, this was the first anthology of Dadaist writing and contains contributions by such important authors as Tristan Tzara, Hugo Ball and Hans Arp. It includes theoretical writing, poetry, polemic and flashes of unclassifiable brilliance. Huelsenbeck himself was one of the founding spirits of Dada, having worked with Ball in Berlin during the Great War organising pacifist meetings and readings of 'Negro' poetry, much to the shock of the local population. Huelsenbeck's own poetry was generally anti-war, anti-literature and very much pro-drums, whistles and loud noises. Despite this artistic background, and his place in compiling this highly important collection of avant garde writing, Huelsenbeck ended his career practising as a psychiatrist in Long Island under the name of Charles R. Hulbeck. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Autograph letters to Professor Donald Robertson.

      Cambridge: , 1920-36. 11 autograph letters, all signed, most one page but some two or three in length. Excellent condition. An exceptional collection of autograph letters signed from poet and classicist A. E. Housman (1859-1936) to Donald Struan Robertson (1885-1961 - a stellar Greek scholar attached to Trinity College, Cambridge, from his undergraduate days until his death) and his wife. He was particularly respected for his work on Apuleius, and was Regius Professor of Greek at the University of Cambridge from 1928 until 1950. Housman, as Kennedy Professor of Latin (the most senior Latin chair at Cambridge) from 1911 until his death, was Robertson's counterpart. As such this correspondence shows us Housman the classicist in long-term correspondence with one of his closest Cambridge peers, and has many flashes of sardonic humour. The collection closes rather poignantly with a letter in shaky pencil hand from the Cambridge nursing home in the month of Housman's death. 1. Trinity College, Cambridge. 8 December 1920. 2pp. Enclosing three essays (not present here) "for the Members' Prize. I have marked such misprints and false accents as I have noticed, and have also marked or indicated a good many other mistakes." Then remarking, with evident disappointment, that, having checked the regulations, the bad handwriting does not constitute grounds for disqualification. 2. Trinity College, Cambridge. 22 May 1924. 3pp. Thanks Robertson for sending "your papers on the MSS of Apuleius" and praising the work, before going on to give some very detailed textual criticism. 3. Trinity College, Cambridge. 5 June 1926. 1p. A letter of thanks followed by a few jokes in Greek. 4. Trinity College, Cambridge. 8 February 1931. 1p. Thanks "for another pound of the priceless (in every sense) sugar. Sir Robert Walpole said that women who will not take money will take diamonds; so I am saving up." 5. Trinity College, Cambridge. 13 March 1931. 1p. Correcting Robertson on a subtlety of Latin. Also noting enigmatically, "I hear from Hackforth that I have been causing you some trouble and perhaps polluting your mind." Reginald Hackforth was a classical scholar who specialised in Plato, and was Laurence Professor of Ancient Philosophy at Cambridge 1939-52. 6. Trinity College, Cambridge. 9 October 1931. 3pp. Lengthy and sardonic letter about the trouble of preparing lectures for students who "will require so much preliminary matter, not only about rival theories of Ueberlieferungsgeschichte [the history of tradition] but about prosody and Iambenkurzung [iambic abbreviation] and hiatus, without which there can be no critical study, and which they cannot learn from Lindsay without at the same time being bamboozled". He then complains that he is forced to stay in College during the summer "and so to brim with bitterness one of the few and evil years remaining to me on this side of the seventh circle of the inferno, which apparently is where scholars go, and where Musetus will find great fault with my Latin style." 7. Evelyn Nursing Home, Cambridge. 5 June 1933. 1p. Letter in ill health, thanking Robertson for flowers, "Though I have not had them put in my bed-room, the matron has joyfully carried them off for hers." 8. Trinity College, Cambridge. 26 July 1933. 1p. Accepting a (solicited) invitation for lunch: "Many thanks for the kindness with which you respond to my shameful attempt to cadge a luncheon". 9. Trinity College, Cambridge. 22 February 1935. 1p. Accepting invitation to dinner, "and will dress properly". 10. Trinity College, Cambridge. 7 August 1935. 1p. Refusing lunch invitation because "next week my brother will be staying with me and we shall be motoring about the country." 11. Evelyn Nursing Home, Cambridge. 8 April 1936. 1p. Letter in a weak pencil hand from Evelyn Nursing Home only three weeks before his death. A poignant letter of apology having missed seeing Robertson.

        Sphinx, The

      London: John Lane, The Bodley Head, 1920. Oscar Wilde's "The Sphinx" Illustrated by Alastair The 'Exquisite Grotesque! Half Woman and Half Animal!' ALASTAIR [VOIGHT, Hans Henning, illustrator]. WILDE, Oscar. The Sphinx. Illustrated by Alastair. London: John Lane, The Bodley Head, 1920. First edition illustrated by Alastair (first published in 1894, with decorations by Charles Ricketts). Limited to 1,000 copies. Large quarto. 36 pp. Ten plates printed in black and turquoise, with descriptive tissue guards, plus two additional plates on the front and rear endpapers. Thirteen large decorative initials (including repeats) printed in black and turquoise. Title printed in black and turquoise. Publisher's white buckram, front cover pictorially stamped in gilt and dark turquoise with a design by Alastair, spine lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut. Small circular bookplate on rear paste-down. Spine very slightly darkened, but the gilt and blue design on front cover quite fresh. A near fine copy. "The publication of The Sphinx in 1920 signalled the start of Alastair's decade of fame. The book had been planned before the war. The illustrations had been printed in Belgium and stored in London during the war years: as a note in the book pointed out... First published by John Lane in 1894, this was originally a youthful poem, later revised. An invocation to the Sphinx, the 'exquisite grotesque! half woman and half animal!', it brought in a multiplicity of Egyptian echoes in its heightened language." (Victor Arwas. Alastair Illustrator of Decadence, p. 12 & p.30) Alastair (Hans Henning Voight) 1887-1969, was a a writer, artist, dancer, and illustrator. His drawings were inspired by the work of Aubrey Beardsley, and combines his elegant skill with his fascination of the perverse, sinister, and satanic. Oscar Wilde (1854-1900). Oscar Wilde's poem "The Sphinx" depicts a sexually voracious monster - the legendary Sphinx, who, in Wilde's work, has been the lover of many classical figures, among them Ammon, the god Amenalk, the gryphon, and the Tragelaphos (a goat-stag monster of myth). Throughout the poem Wilde makes references to figures of legend.

      London: Macmillan & Co., Ltd, 1920 - When Irish Elves Are Smiling It's an Arthur Rackham SpringWith the Lilt of Irish FairiesYou Can Hear the Goblins Sing[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. STEPHENS, James. Irish Fairy Tales. London: Macmillan & Co., Ltd, 1920. First trade edition. Quarto (8 1/4 x 6 5/8 in; 210 x 168 mm). x, 318 pp. Sixteen full color plates with captioned tissue guards, twenty-one drawings in black and white. Publisher's gilt-stamped green cloth. Top edge stained green. Corners and spine extremities a little rubbed. A near fine copy.The fairy tales in this book include:The Story of Tuan mac CairillThe Boyhood of FionnThe Birth of BranOisin's MotherThe Wooing of BecfolaThe Little Brawl at AllenThe Carl of the Drab CoatThe Enchanted Cave of Cesh CorranBecuma of the White SkinMorgan's Frenzy"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)."Rackham's books for the English market in the early post-war years included Flora Annie Steel's English Fairy Tales Retold (1918)? and his friend James Stephen's collection of Irish Fairy Tales? In the latter 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).Latimore and Haskell, p. 52. Riall, p. 138. [Attributes: First Edition]

        RUR. Rossum's Uinversal Robots. Kolektivní drama o vsupiní komedii a trech aktech.

      Praze (Prague), Aventinum, 1920. Bound in a contemporary green half cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Binding a bit simple, but fine. Internally very nice and clean. Scarce first edition of the seminal work that coined the term "robot", introduced it to the English language - and all other languages - and to science fiction. The work constitutes a cornerstone of 20th century literature and a landmark work of science fiction. The work was first published, as it is here, in Prague, 1920, in the original Czech, bearing the English subtitle "Rossum's Universal Robots". The play premiered on January 25 1921 and became an immediate success. By 1923, it had been translated into thirty languages. The work was hugely influential from the very beginning, and today science fiction is scarcely imaginable without this groundbreaking work. Introducing the word "robot", Capek displaced older words such as "automaton" or "android" in languages around the world. The word is derived from the Czech "robota", which means forced labour of the kind that serfs had to perform on their masters' lands - "robota" again is derived from the Czech word "rab", which mean "slave". The name "Rossum" is an allusion to the Czech word "rozum", which means "reason", "wisdom", "intellect" or the like. In "R.U.R" a scientist discovers the secret of creating humanlike machines that are more precise and reliable than human beings, and a factory is set up, making these artificial people - robots - from synthetic organic matter. The robots are not made of metal, but of living flesh and blood and resemble the modern ideas of robots and clones more than mechanical "items". They are still, assembled, however, and not born or grown. Capek's robots may be mistaken for humans and can think for themselves. In the beginning, the robots seem happy to work for humans, but a robot rebellion leads to machines dominating the human race and threatening it with extinction.The play was translated from Czech into English by Paul Selver and adapted for the English stage by Nigel Playfair in 1923. The American première was at the Garrick Theatre in New York City in October 1922, where it ran for 184 performances, a production in which Spencer Tracy and Pat O'Brien played robots in their Broadway debuts. It also played in Chicago and Los Angeles during 1923.

        Norman Davey collection. 4 manuscript notebooks of poems and a few stories, written in pencil (approximately [410] pp. of written text) and two books, one signed

      1920 - A unique literary archive of Norman Davey (1888-1949), an English engineer, poet, and novelist. In 1914 he published 2 diverse books, The Gas Turbine and Poems with a Prefixed Essay. Four of his poems appeared in Cambridge Poets 1914-1920. An Anthology (1920). He wrote 18 books, the famous book being his bestselling novel entitled The Pilgrim of a Smile (1921). Early in his career, Davey was featured by Grant Overton, the literary editor and critic, in When Winter Comes to Main Street (1922). All items housed in a matching box. Circa 1917-20. Many drafts of poems are untitled, and some are crossed out. Approximately [410] pp. of written text. Also includes two books written by Davies: his very scarce first book, Poems by Norman Davey with a Prefixed Essay (London: L.C.C. Central School of Arts and Crafts, 1914). Printed in black and red, greenish blue paper boards, quarter-bound in dark greenish blue cloth. His last work entitled The Ghost of a Rose (London: Chapman & Hall, 1939). Blue cloth in chipped jacket, price clipped on front flap, signed presentation copy. (1) "Tristia, Book II - (Ad Lalage) Continued" consisting of drafts of the following poems: "The Fire"; "The Rain"; "The Ship"; "The Sea"; "A Word in Farewell"; "O BIB O "; "TIB. LIB.I.1. LIT. TRANS."; "Order of Sonnets" (also titled "Sonnets Out of Sequence") with "San Apollinaire in Classe", "Bologna", "Tchehov", "Artzi Bashef", "The Charioteer", "Agnani", "Edward Gibbon", "Toulouse", "Giotto's Tower", "The New Renaissance", "An Afterword"; "By the Canal in Flanders" (in blue ink); "A Broadside Addressed". The notebook has what appears to be a table of contents: "Ad Ovidun Apologia. Ad Lectores. A Forewa[o]rd. Book I Ad Mæcenas. Book II Ad Lalage with an Interpretation from Tibulus. Book III Ad Camerium. Bibliophilos (?) Sonnes (?)". Marbled paper boards, quarter-bound in black cloth. Ruled paper. [82] pp. Light brown endpapers.

V Conceptions of a Conference. VI The Survival of a Supper Party. VII A Carnival in Cannon's Square. IX Preadventures with the Press" This appears to be a preliminary table of contents of The Pilgrim of a Smile (London: Chapman & Hall, 1921) since Penhaligon is featured in the novel. The second table of contents is said to be a "Proposed Scheme": "Tristia. (Quotations). Ad Ovidum Aplogia. Ad Lectorem. A Foreword. Ad Lalagem. Ad Corinnam. Ad Pholoen. Ad Liginium." Black flexible cloth. Ruled paper. [183] pp. Light green endpapers. Davey's name appears on the second table of contents.

        Otto Hutt Füllhalter Entwurf 04 »Princess Cut«. Goldfeder Strichstärke F.

      - Pforzheim am Rande des Schwarzwaldes ist Deutschlands Zentrum der Schmuck- und Edelmetallwaren. Hier gründete 1920 ein Mann ein Unternehmen für Taschengebrauchsartikel und edle Schreibgeräte aus Silber: Otto Hutt. Der Gestaltungsauffassung des Bauhauses stand er nahe, sein Anspruch an eine schnörkellose Form, die vornehmlich der Funktion dient, spiegelte sich schon damals in seinen Entwürfen wider. So innovativ wie beständig – ein wesentlicher Bestandteil wahrhaft guten Designs –werden die qualitätvollen Schreibgeräte auch heute noch in der Tradition von Otto Hut und ausschließlich in Deutschland hergestellt. So entstehen hochwertige Gebrauchsgegenstände, die das Gütezeichen »Made in Germany« mit vollem Recht tragen. Alle Komponenten der Otto Hutt Schreibgeräte sind perfekt in ihrer Funktionalität, langlebig im Gebrauch und nachhaltig in den verwendeten Materialien. Ferner besitzen die Füllhalter eine Otto Hutt-Feder mit eingraviertem Markenlogo - ein besonderes Qualitätsmerkmal, sie ist das Herzstück jedes Füllfederhalters und ausschlaggebend für die Freude am schönen Schreiben. Die Individualität dieser Schreibgeräte ist primär begründet in ihrer hohen Material- und Fertigungsqualität, hinzu kommt eine durchgehende Nummerierung: jeweils in der Kappe ist ein 6-stelliger Nummerncode eingraviert.»Entwurf 04« mit der goldenen Schreibfeder ist kompromisslos seinem Zweck untergeordnet, ohne schmückendes Beiwerk. Die Dimensionen sind kompakt und abgestimmt auf eine optimale Handhabung. Ein ganz besonderes Merkmal und Beispiel für die hohe Präzision der mechanischen Fertigung dieser Schreibsysteme ist der Federclip, herausgearbeitet aus massivem Messing, veredelt mit einer Platinschicht und perfekt in seiner Funktion. Alle Füllfederhalter des »Entwurf 04« werden mit wertvollen 18 Karat Goldfedern, deren Schreibflächen mehrfach von Hand geschliffen und poliert sind, ausgestattet. Der Schaft ist in einem weltweit nur noch sehr selten angewandten – weil langwierigen und aufwändigen – Prozess dezent »guillochiert«, also mit einem Gravur-Strich von insgesamt 5,8 Metern (!) versehen – das ist Hohe Kunst der Silberbearbeitung, benannt nach ihrem Erfinder im 17. Jahrhundert, Monsieur Guillot. Das Gewicht des Silbers der Schäfte und Kappen lässt die Materialqualität in der Hand fühlbar werden –klassische Formgebung und traditionelle Handwerkskunst in Vollendung! 1 Füllhalter 13,2 cm, Goldfeder Strichstärke F (fein), Corpus komplett aus Sterlingsilber, 5,8 m Guillochierung, für Patrone/Konverter, 1 Patrone innenliegend, mechanische Clipeinheit mit Federfunktion, mit Garantiekarte in Schatulle.

The Jewish Museum Berlin houses the largest Steinhardt collection in the world” (Wikipedia, 2017) . Steinhardt's highly original art is rooted in the values and symbols of Judaism. Much of his work echoes a religious vision: he has managed to depict in a plastic manner such prophits as Isaiah, Jeremiah, Jonah, and also Moses.
