        The Mystery Mind

      Grosset and Dunlap New York [1921] - First Edition and First Photoplay Edition, illustrated with four stills from the Supreme Pictures serial starring J. Robert Pauline, "The Famous Hypnotist", Violet MacMillan, Paul Panzer and Ed Rogers. Pauline was a well-known hypnotist whose career spanned thirty years, this was his only film role. A very uncommon mystery and horror photoplay with some confusing bibliography. Hubin lists this Grosset edition as the true first printing, published in 1921. This is despite a copyright page claiming a 1920 copyright by Harper and Brothers and a film production date of November 1920. Reeve and Grey are given credit as the screenwriters of the film and it seems likely that the 'story' started off as a silent black and white serial written by Reeve and Grey, novelized and published by Grosset who used the copyright plate from Harpers which perhaps had intentions to publish this book but forfeit the production to Grosset perhaps because of the popularity of their photoplay editions. There is a novelization credit on title page for Marc Edmund Jones which adds credence to this argument. "Violet Bronson's life is threatened by a mysterious and tricky gang, lead by Evil Eye, if she marries Robert Dupont before her eighteenth birthday. This band is determined to get the hidden treasure to which Violet's guardian, Dr. Sutton, has the plan of its location. In spite of the fact that every precaution is taken, Violet is suddenly kidnapped, but her lover, Robert Dupont, has no fear for this terrible gang and is untiring in his efforts to rescue her." Near Fine but for top edges of covers mildly bumped, in Very Good modestly darkened dustjacket, some shallow chips and wear. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        AFTER READING. [and] AFTER BERNEVAL

      Beaumont Press, Westminster 1921 - 222 x 152 mm (8 3/4 x 6"). Two separately issued but companion volumes. FIRST EDITION. ONE OF 75 COPIES ON JAPANESE VELLUM OF THE EDITION DE LUXE SIGNED BY THE PUBLISHER AND ARTIST (of a total of 475 copies). Original vellum-backed decorative paper boards. "Reading" with vignette on title in orange and green, two plates in the same colors, one facsimile of writing in text, device on final page, stylized illustration of a tree on front and rear endpapers; "Berneval" with woodcuts of Naples and Paris printed in blue on the front and rear endpapers, two-color title page woodcut, one plate and a facsimile of a Wilde letter, and printer's woodcut device; our special deluxe version WITH THREE ADDITIONAL WOODCUTS at the back of each volume, all the woodcuts as well as the cover design by Randolph Schwabe. Ransom, p. 211; Tomkinson, p. 17. "Berneval" spine just a bit darkened, otherwise FINE, UNWORN COPIES that have obviously been little used, as they open stiffly and are immaculate inside and out. Here, "After Berneval" is offered with "After Reading," its (earlier) companion volume, both of them in their deluxe form on Japanese vellum and including an extra suite of the illustrations. "Reading" comprises a set of letters, also written to Ross, by Wilde during the summer of 1897, after having just been released from two years' imprisonment in Reading Gaol. The preface to its sequel, "After Berneval," says that the earlier collection "was unprocurable almost as soon as it was published." The letters in these volumes tell the story of a tragic literary figure who fell from a precipitous height. Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) was born and raised in Ireland, studied classics at Trinity College, Dublin, and at Magdalen College, Oxford, and then settled in London. There he became famous for his unmatched wit and infamous for his personal eccentricities--long hair, décor at his lodgings that included peacock feathers and blue china, and, ultimately, sexual behavior that was deemed both intolerable and criminal. During the first half of the 1890s, he was enjoying remarkable social prominence and literary success with the staging of "Lady Windermere's Fan" (1892), "A Woman of No Importance" (1893), "An Ideal Husband" (1894), and the incomparable "The Importance of Being Earnest" (1895). But two months after the staging of this last play, he brought a defamation suit against the Marquess of Queensbury, the father of his intimate friend, Lord Alfred Douglas. The suit backfired: in the course of the litigation, Wilde was investigated by police, and his homosexuality was exposed, leaving his reputation destroyed. He was sentenced in May of 1895 to two years of hard labor, spending part of his time behind bars at Reading Prison, where he produced his powerful poem, "De Profundis." After release, he moved to the Continent and died three years later in Paris of meningitis. As Day says, "Among English men of letters only Byron and Shaw have surpassed Wilde in the craft of conscious posing and self-publicizing," a fact that has made succeeding generations suspicious of the reality behind the legend that the author helped to establish. But after a period when he was treated as a kind of martyr because of his suffering at the hands of squeamish Victorianism, "it is at last possible to evaluate Wilde as the capable literary artist he acutally was."

He occupied the post until his death in 1940.

Evans writing style is very good and he has an interesting early historical perspective on the game. The book really shines with the black and white photographs, however, which were taken from Evans personal collection. They include pictures of Harold Hilton, Harry Vardon, Bobby Jones Francis Ouimet and courses such as Merion, Pine Valley and Oakmont. Evans retired from the game and went on to found the Evans Scholarship Fund, which sends young caddies to college. D&J E8590. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Travels in Arabia Deserta. With a new Preface by the Author, Introduction by T.E. Lawrence, and all the Original Maps, Plans and Cuts

      London: Jonathan Cape and the Medici Society (Philip Warner), 1921., 1921. FIRST EDITION THUS. 2 volumes, large octavo. With folding colour map in pocket at end of volume I, frontispieces, and numerous maps, plans and illustrations (some folding), pp.(xxvi), 623; (xiv), 690. Bound in original dark green cloth, gilt, with coated black endpapers, top edge gilt. Some minor wear, extremities sunned, cloth a little rubbed, spine tips frayed. Very good indeed. Originally published in 1888 at the Cambridge University Press, this important Cape edition is entirely reset, with a new preface by Doughty and an essay by T.E. Lawrence. During the Great War Lawrence urged the British Government to issue serial parts of this work as a handbook for officers serving in Arabia. Following hostilities he lobbied to republish the whole book. Duckworth and Doubleday declined and eventually Medici employee Herbert J. Cape, who appreciated Doughty's work, took up the challenge and produced this brand new edition of 500 copies, being the first ever book from Jonathan Cape, Publisher, on 15th January 1921, sold at a nosebleed inducing price of nine guineas (about £1000 today). Six large paper copies signed by Doughty and Lawrence were produced, and a quick reprint followed without the Lawrence note, withdrawn by him "because it's in bad taste".

      Various places, 1921 and 1922.. 4to and 8vo. Altogether 40 pp. on 25 ff.. Very comprehensive collection of private letters written to his last love, Rose Ader (1890-1955). "Between 1921 and 1923, Puccini enjoyed what was likely his last romantic fling when he fell passionately in love with a young German soprano, Rose Ader, for whom he created the part of Liu in his final work, Turandot'" (The New Grove Dictionary). "My good and sweet Rosa", Puccini wrote on April 17, 1921, on one of his earliest letters to Rose, "I am deeply moved as I write you. I would wish to be able to tell you what I have in my heart - if only you could understand! Besides the distance which separates us there is the matter of the language which prevents us from saying all that we have in our hearts - what good fortune that I should have met you and what misfortune not to be able to speak together! I would have such riches in expression with which to express my great love! A love which will be with me all my life - you cannot imagine what an impression you made on me! Your languid eyes which when they looked at me strike my heart as though to seek an echo of an immense affection. I shall never be able to forge you - my Rosa what will happen to me. How can I bear being so far away. Yet it is necessary to suffer and to wait. Life is all one waiting and one suffering! Study, study, I beg you on my knees. Study with ardor and feverishly a little of my language. I believe that guided by the love that you have for me you will soon succeed in understanding me. That day will be one of the most beautiful ones of our life. Write to me even in German. I shall have your letter translated. If with the help of Mrs. S... you wish to write in French I shall not let the eyes of a stranger see your letter. I shall write you every week and even more often than that. How clearly I write! Never have I written in this manner - for you, my joy, I do everything [...]" (transl. from the Italian original).
