Illustrated with four original woodcuts by Vanessa Bell. Hand set and letterpress printed by McDermott at The Prompt Press, Richmond. A lovely fresh copy.Virginia Woolf (1882- 1941), English novelist, essayist and critic, married the political theorist Leonard Woolf in 1912, with whom she established the Hogarth Press. MONDAY OR TUESDAY was the first Hogarth Press title to be included in the Annals of English Literature, 1475-1950. It was Woolf's "break out" book and it was noted that with this collection of short stories, Mrs. Woolf "emerged definitely with the liveliest imagination and most delicate style of her time." Vanessa Bell (1879-1961), elder sister of Virginia Woolf, was herself a talented artist. She designed a number of dust jackets for books published by her sister's press, as well as illustrating the books. In her art, she attempted to break the bonds of restrictive Victorian norms. She, and the other members of the Bloomsbury group, made significant efforts to introduce the French avant-garde to an English audience. Bell's art, often decorative, and especially in the period represented in this book owes much to Bonnard, Vuillard and Matisse. See an Image. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        BACK TO METHUSELAH A Metabiological Pentateuch

      Constable 1921 - First edition. Original sage green cloth titled in gilt on the spine. Author's contemporary presentation copy, inscribed on the half title (a week before publication), "To Sydney & Beatrice Webb from G. B.S. 16 June 1921." A very good copy, with a little light soiling. An exceptional association copy. Shaw first met Sidney Webb at a meeting of the Zetetical Society in 1879, and it was with the Webbs that Shaw essentially founded the Fabian society, the socialist political organisation dedicated to transforming Britain into a socialist state, not by revolution but by systematic progressive legislation, bolstered by persuasion and mass education. The Fabian society would later be instrumental in founding the London School of Economics and the Labour Party. It remains Shaw's lasting political legacy. On attending an exploratory meeting of potential 'Fabians', "Shaw had found his official milieu. He went away and returned with a Zetetical discovery of his: one Sidney Webb (later Lord Passfield), then resident clerk at the Colonial office . Wherever Shaw has succeeded you will find that he has attached himself to some more enterprising spirit who has taken all the money risks . In his Fabian phase he picked Sidney Webb; and the firm of Sidney and Beatrice Webb proved a very sound political investment." (Frank Harris - Bernard Shaw). Written as an attempt to find his way out of post-war pessimism, Back to Methuselah is a linking of five plays exploring the same ideologies as the much earlier 'Man and Superman', as it dramatises Shaw's evolutionary theories and explores the history of human progress from the Garden of Eden to a science-fiction future.

Die vorliegende Sammelhandschrift eines südafrikanischen Missionars vereint das auf Deutsch geführte Ausgabenbuch der Missionsstation Wartburg (8 SS.; Beginn) und eine sprachwissenschaftliche Abhandlung "The Music of the Xosa (Bantu) Languages" (14 SS.; Schluß) mit einem volkssprachlichen Krippenspiel, betitelt "Umbdlalo wabatwana we-Xmas" (6 SS.). Der Text wird eingeleitet vom Verzeichnis der beim Wartburger Weihnachtsfest 1921 zu lesenden Bibelstellen und zu singenden Kirchenlieder; es folgt das zwei Szenen umfassende Krippenspiel mit den Rollen "Ruben", "Jonathan", "Natau", "Masitandaze", "Mariya" und "Joseph". - So frühe Literaturzeugnisse in afrikanischen Sprachen gelten aufgrund der vorherrschenden oralen Tradition als Seltenheiten und setzen bedingt durch die Missionierung überhaupt erst mit dem 19. Jahrhundert ein. Diese Handschrift ist nach Beurteilung von Dr. Wolfgang Zimmer (Institut für Germanistik an der Univ. des Saarlands und Goethe-Institut Yaounde, Forschungsschwerpunkt afrikanisches Theater) als frühestes bekanntes Theaterstück in einer afrikanischen Sprache anzusehen. - Rücken lädiert; Deckel etwas gelockert, sonst gut erhalten.

WITH: John Nash's fourth and final paper seminal contribution to non-cooperative game theory wherein he set an entirely new research agenda commonly referred to as the Nash Program for cooperative games.
