SMITH, Logan Pearsall.
Richmond: The Hogarth Press, 1920. Octavo. Original blue paper wrappers, white label lettered in black on front cover. Spine cracked but holding, edges of wrappers a little yellowed, overall a good copy. First edition, first impression, presentation copy with the author's inscription to someone with the same surname, i.e. "G[----]. Smith from the author". Woolmer notes that this is apparently bound by the Woolfs, as the wrappers appear in a number of differing colours and designs; this copy matches Woolmer's description of it. The number of copies printed is not known, although 439 copies were sold by the end of August 1923, and it was out of print in 1925, suggesting that the print-run was a small one. Woolmer 11.

Geraldy, Paul
Librairie Block, Paris. Paris: Librairie Block (no date, but 1920's). 12mo, 148 pp. Paintings by Z. Z. de Vesley. Quarter vellum and hand-painted marbled boards with hand-painted watercolor illustrations at corners and spine, top edge gilt. Original bookmark ribbon still in place. Very modest, light shelfwear, faint dampstain at lower fore edge corners of pages, a uniquely beautiful binding, between very good plus and near fine. Paul Geraldy (1885-1983), French poet and playwright, may have been born for Valentine's Day. A walking compendium of romantic quotes, his Toi at Moi - probably his most famous oeuvre - is a collection of poetry dealing with the mysteries of love. Artist de Vesley's painted vellum binding, using chimerical ink-pastels, matches the mood in a way which defies words. One envisions this having been at one time proffered as the consummately heart-touching Valentine to -what lady fair ? It is the woman who chooses the man who will choose her (Geraldy). Maybe back in the roaring twenties, that happened, when this little opus was itself young. A painted melody of enchanting visual aspect -as we say now, curb appeal - and words of rending tone. Certainly unique, and not replaceable. Please review scans. L-42n [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Erotic ephemera]
n.p. [Taiwan ?], 1920. Internally side-stapled, with printed wrappers. Chipping, creases and stains to covers; damp-stain to first few pages. Good. 5 x 6. 7/8". 52pp. A particularly odd example of an erotic mimeo novel; a sort of erotic confession or coming-of-age story, told by a mother, formerly known as 'Peach,' in the form of a letter to her daughter. It begins: 'My Beloved Nancy, although it seems to show shy of affection on your part to write a letter like this from your own mother, it requires fortitude of a top kilter that I've prepositioned to give away nakedly my low-down bedrock eventuated in my rosebud days just as you're now one of the season's buds.' This style of writing at first seemed to be a kind of Engrish, but its playful and often deliberately (?) strange tone suggested someone playing with style and prosody - a Joycean jape or a cut-up, pornographic Gertrude Stein. Closer inspection revealed a line of Chinese characters in the gutter and the numbers 29-5-21 (29 May 1921?). And, we suppose, Engrish it is. It may be a bastardized form or rewite of an earlier work; there's mention of a country-house in Scotland and a trip to the Riviera, but the action soon gets down to Peach's defilement at the hands of three men, plus a flagellation scene. The book is crudely printed via spirit duplication in a dark red ink on brownish paper; the stencil seems to have been gone over by hand, giving the text a rough-hewn, hand-made quality. One page is redone in block letters. Small illos follow the end of two of the six chapters: that of a sailing ship or Chinese junk … [Click Below for Full Description]

HELD, John, Jr.
1920. Fine. Unbound. Original art. Pen, ink, and wash. Image matted to approximately 5.5" x 8.5". Framed. Signed lower right: "John Held, Jr." A lonely dog peers longingly through saloon doors for his owner. An amusing and touching little drawing. Few artists define an age as thoroughly as John Held, Jr. defined the "Jazz Age" of the 1920s. He was one of the most successful commercial artists of his era, and was particularly known for his anemic Jazz Age flappers and their raccoon-coated male companions. He illustrated magazines, books and dustjackets in this manner, including those for F. Scott Fitzgerald's *Tales of the Jazz Age* and *The Vegetable*. He was also known for his illustrations of dogs, some published in *John Held, Jr.'s Dog Tales*, and his satiric "old-timey" hand-drawn illustrations meant to look like woodcuts. Less known are his hauntingly beautiful watercolors of cityscapes. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Smith, Jessie Willcox); Low, Ruth Irma
Small Maynard; Boston; 1920; square 8vo (8" x 6"); 175 pages. VG/None. First edition. Light tan colored woven cloth with stamped red lettering and rules on front cover and spine, stamped silhouette of castle on front cover. Contains a color frontispiece by Jessie Willcox Smith (with printed caption underneath stating 'In Storyland') plus numerous full page B&W block silhouette illustrations by the author Ruth Low (not memorable). The color frontispiece 'In Storyland' originally appeared in Feb 1905 McClures, then facing page 78 (without a printed caption) in Small Maynard's 1909 Chronicles of Rhoda, and then as the frontispiece in Small Maynard's 1918 Little Folks Annual. Small Maynard did not credit J.W. Smith in Rhoda, and on the title page of In Storyland it only credits Low (don't know why they didn't mention her name either place unless it saved them money). This book is quite tight but the cloth is susceptible to soiling and it has both overall light soiling plus many darker smaller and a few larger (up to 1/4") spots as well. Internally the book has no writing, but the paper is not the greatest and has some foxing (or is it soiling) on the page edges but not internally. One of the Ruth Low illustrations is loose. But having said all this, this is a very rare Jessie Willcox Smith book that does not appear in Nudelman, most probably because Low was apparently not a very successful write. She has 3 titles (total of 5 books) listed on ABE at the time of this writing, all 'bunnytail' type titles, and none sells for much. This is a book for the serious Jessie Willcox Smith … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lindsay, Ruby
Cecil Palmer, London 1920 - A scarce title. Ruby Lindsay (1887 - 1919) was Norman and Percy Lindsay's sister, noted for her fluid pen and ink drawings. At an early age she attended the National Gallery School, and later drew for periodicals such as the Bulletin and the Gadfly (1906). She illustrated books and posters, and married Will Dyson, traveling with him to London. In England she continued her work in book illustration, particularly of children's books, and for magazines including Strand Magazine, The London Opinion, and The Sphere. While visiting family in Dublin, having survived the war, she caught and succumbed to the pandemic Spanish flu.This work, available only to subscribers, was produced as a tribute to Ruby. This was the second work published in honor of the artist, following her husband Will Dyson's 'Poems: In Memory of a Wife' (1919). With a full page photographic portrait, and 20 full page illustrations, including 3 in color (Princes Risborough, Fan & Sketch for Fan).4to, (xi), 7-51 pp, 12 pp text & the balance b&w and color illustrations of her work.
