        THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES (Sherlock Holmes)

      New York: Grosset & Dunlap, 1921. Doyle, A(rthur) Conan. THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES. NY: Grosset & Dunlap, (no date but c. 1922). First Photoplay Edition for the 1921 British silent film adaptation directed by Maurice Elvey and starring Lewis Gilbert and Eille Norwood (the latter played Sherlock Holmes in 47 silent films). Frontispiece and four non-movie illustrations by Sidney Paget. The ORIGINAL DUST JACKET has a compelling artistic cover which enacts a scene from the film and beneath which a blurb reads: "THIS IS A SCENE FROM THE F.B.O PHOTOPLAY OF THE STORY." (We can't locate F. B. O. films in our research nor can we find any evidence that the film itself survived.) In Very Good condition without any prior ownership marks (cloth a little worn at the extremities, some minor wrinkling, some little white specks) in an unrestored and unclipped original dust jacket which has noticeable chipping at the spine tip, some very light water-staining, a quarter-dollar sized chip on the back panel, some overall wear to the panels and folds. Yet, all faults noted, the DJ is complete in the sense that no words or pertinent images have been lost to the chips and creases and the book still claims eye appeal. The rarest Sherlock Holmes related photoplay known to us. . First Edition Thus. Very Good/Good.

        Über eine naheliegende Ergänzung des Fundamentes der allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie. [RELATIVITY THEORY]

Original printed wrappers. NEAR MINT CONDITION. A fine fresh example (small pencil mark to upper wrapper) of THIS RARE PAPER!! - ."Although Einstein could not accept Weyl's theory as a physical theory, he cherished "its courageous mathematical construction" and thought intensively about its conceptual foundation. This becomes clear from his paper "On a complement at hand of the bases of general relativity" of 1921. In it, he raised the question whether it would be possible to generate a geometry just from the conformal invariance of Equation without use of the conception "distance", i.e., without using rulers and clocks. He then embarked on conformal invariants and tensors of gauge-weight 0, and gave the one formed from the square of Weyl's conformal curvature tensor" Hubert, F.M. Goenner, On the History of Unified Field Theories. Reference: Weil N. 116; Schlipp-Shields No.145.. First Edition.

        Original Sketch of "Woman and Fawn"

      c. 1921 - In the 1920s, E.E. Cummings was a regular contributor of both writing and artwork to The Dial magazine, which was the preeminent Modernist journal of its time, publishing such writers as Joyce, Pound, Eliot, Cocteau, William Carlos Williams, Marianne Moore, Ford Madox Ford and such artists as Picasso, Cezanne, Matisse and Kandinsky. Cummings was only 25 years old when his first pieces were accepted for The Dial and, notably, it was the only place where his poems and his artwork were published side by side on a regular basis. The January, 1921 issue had four drawings and a poem ("Puella Mea") by Cummings: this is Cummings' original sketch for one of those drawings, perhaps the most well-known of them, of a fawn on its hind legs, next to a nude woman, beneath a tree. This sketch was used as his pencil transfer, and as such is drawn on both sides of the paper. The final product, which was ink and graphite on paper, is now at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a bequest of Scofield Thayer, Cummings' friend and mentor and the editor of The Dial. This sketch is on 8-3/8" x 10-7/8" paper, with a 5" x 9" pencil border. Stained and chipped, mostly in the right margin; very good. With a Gotham Book Mart exhibit number (#245) in the upper left hand corner, where a chip is pending. A copy of The Dial, Vol. LXX, No 1 [NY: Dial, 1921], with the published drawing is included and is near fine with a small spine nick and the usual wear to the yapped edges. An iconic image in its very first incarnation.

Umberto Brunelleschi (Montemurlo,1879 - Paris,1949). "Studia pittura e scultura all'Accademia di Belle Arti di Firenze. Nel 1901 si trasferisce a Parigi, in compagnia di A. Soffici, e qui continua i suoi studi sotto la guida di J.L. Gérome. Inizia a collaborare a "Le Rire" ed altre riviste parigine. I suoi esordi di illustratore sono marcati dall'influenza di figure come Caran d'Ache, A. Roubille, A. Rouveyre. Ma è soprattutto nei primi anni '10 che la sua personalità emerge in Francia come quella di un protagonista della svolta del gusto dall'orientalismo di matrice nipponica dell'Art Nouveau al nuovo orientalismo, dove le suggestioni slave dei Balletti russi si fondono con quelle delle miniature persiane, destinato ad alimentare il nascente Déco. Nel 1912 debutta come scenografo. Allo scoppio della guerra torna in Italia e si arruola. Dopo la guerra torna a Parigi dove lavora come scenografo per diversi teatri. Illustra anche diversi libri editi da editori francesi e belgi." Diz. degli ill. Simbolisti e Art Nouveau.

        Breguet (1747 -1823). Illustrated with over 150 photographic reproductions & other plates.

      London, Printed for the Author, 1921. 1921 2 voll. in-8° (245x155mm), pp. (4), 115 + 116-233 di tavole fotografiche impresse al solo recto (la numerazione prosegue per ff.); 10 + 52 (il secondo volume è di supplemento); brossura editoriale azzurra con titolo a stampa in nero. Perfetto esemplare entro velina. Prima edizione, impressa in 1.000 esemplari, di monografia di riferimento su Abraham Louis Breguet (Neuchâtel, 1747-Parigi,1823), uno dei massimi orologiai del suo tempo, che esercitò la sua attività in Francia. Perfezionatore dell'orologio perpetuo, fu autore di numerose invenzioni nel campo dell'orologeria nonché in quelli della fisica e dell'astronomia, venendo anche ricevuto come socio dall'Académie des Sciences. Gli si debbono numerosissimi cronometri, pendole astronomiche, orologi marini, termometri, tutti di eccezionale fattura tecnica. Fu altresì membro dell'Institut de France, del Bureau des Longitudes e orologiaio della Marina di Francia. "No one, I believe, has attempted to write a short book or pamphlet on Breguet's work, and this want I am trying here to supply... Because they are scarce and dear, many idiots with money collect Breguet watches, although they are people who cannot distinguish between a fine watch and one worth "two and six". Collectors of this kind exist in abundance". Le oltre 150 immagini fotografiche offrono una panoramica iconografica estremamente esaustiva della produzione di Breguet. Bromley, 752-753.

      Published by Von Boeckmann-Jones Co., Austin. 1921.. This is the true first edition that precedes the Yale Edition by 4 years. This book is referenced in John H. Jenkins, BASIC TEXAS BOOKS, (no. 76). Jenkins calls it one of the finest personal memoirs of Texas Ranger service. J. Frank Dobie said, "Once you start reading Captain Gillett's story of the dog that guarded the Indian-besieged camp in Crow Flat; of the chase of old Victorio, Apache, into Mexico; of the round-up of outlaws in the Junction country; of the desperate ride after Sam Bass; of the Peg Leg robber gang on the San Saba; of the long ride with General Baylor from San Antonio to El Paso, you can not stop until you have finished the story, and then you want to begin the next." Boldly inscribed and signed by the author, Texas Ranger J. B. Gillett on the second free end page: "Very Truly Yours, J. B. Gillett." The first free end page has an inscription that reads: "Presented to Baylen (or Baylor) Shaw by the Author, 1922. 332 pages. All 8 plates are present with the original tissue guards. Original green cloth hardback has bug damage which has discolored the spine and lower edges. The title on the front cover is bright and undamaged. The title on the spine is bright with a little bug damage. No dust jacket. Book does not have any other writing except the author's signature and the inscription noted above. The interior of the book is remarkably well preserved. Binding is tight. Book is straight. Condition of the book is Very Good, plus. A very clean book for its age.

        Original Sketch of "Woman and Fawn"

      c. 1921. In the 1920s, E.E. Cummings was a regular contributor of both writing and artwork to The Dial magazine, which was the preeminent Modernist journal of its time, publishing such writers as Joyce, Pound, Eliot, Cocteau, William Carlos Williams, Marianne Moore, Ford Madox Ford and such artists as Picasso, Cezanne, Matisse and Kandinsky. Cummings was only 25 years old when his first pieces were accepted for The Dial and, notably, it was the only place where his poems and his artwork were published side by side on a regular basis. The January, 1921 issue had four drawings and a poem ("Puella Mea") by Cummings: this is Cummings' original sketch for one of those drawings, perhaps the most well-known of them, of a fawn on its hind legs, next to a nude woman, beneath a tree. This sketch was used as his pencil transfer, and as such is drawn on both sides of the paper. The final product, which was ink and graphite on paper, is now at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a bequest of Scofield Thayer, Cummings' friend and mentor and the editor of The Dial. This sketch is on 8-3/8" x 10-7/8" paper, with a 5" x 9" pencil border. Stained and chipped, mostly in the right margin; very good. With a Gotham Book Mart exhibit number (#245) in the upper left hand corner, where a chip is pending. A copy of The Dial, Vol. LXX, No 1 [NY: Dial, 1921], with the published drawing is included and is near fine with a small spine nick and the usual wear to the yapped edges. An iconic image in its very first incarnation. .

        AFTER READING. [and] AFTER BERNEVAL

      Beaumont Press Westminster: Beaumont Press, 1921. 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). Hardcover. 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.

Original printed wrappers. NEAR MINT CONDITION. A fine fresh example (small pencil mark to upper wrapper) of THIS RARE PAPER!! - ."Although Einstein could not accept Weyl's theory as a physical theory, he cherished "its courageous mathematical construction" and thought intensively about its conceptual foundation. This becomes clear from his paper "On a complement at hand of the bases of general relativity" of 1921. In it, he raised the question whether it would be possible to generate a geometry just from the conformal invariance of Equation without use of the conception "distance", i.e., without using rulers and clocks. He then embarked on conformal invariants and tensors of gauge-weight 0, and gave the one formed from the square of Weyl's conformal curvature tensor" Hubert, F.M.

        The Second Book of the Authors Club Liber Scriptorum [with] A Collection of Manuscripts and Galley Proofs of The Second Book of the Authors Club Liber Scriptorum

      New York: The Author's Club. 1921. First. The complete collection of manuscripts and galley proofs of The Second Book of the Authors Club Liber Scriptorum along with a near fine copy of the book, #2 of 251 copies. All but one of the 129 manuscripts are present with various corrections and additions including author Signatures on nearly half, including four Signatures not in the book, plus a manuscript originally included but removed before publication. One or more versions of the printer's galleys for 116 of the 129 contributions with corrections and printer's notes. Also included is a contemporary oversized quarter leather clamshell box with gilt spine label that housed the manuscripts and galleys. First edition. Folio. Morocco grained cloth gilt, beveled edges, marbled endpapers, and untrimmed pages. Near fine with light wear to the extremities, joints lightly rubbed and two tiny bookseller stickers on the rear endpapers ("Philotheos K. Ferney Fine and Rare Books"). The Authors Club of New York was organized in 1882 as a club for noted persons and authors, such as Andrew Carnegie, Samuel Clemens, Frank Stockton, and John Hay. The First Book of the Authors Club Liber Scriptorum was published in 1891 to raise money for a permanent home for the social club. This second volume was conceived to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the first volume but publication was delayed due to World War I. When finally published in 1921, it contained 129 stories, poems, and essays in a limited edition of 251 copies and was Signed by each author at his contribution. Contributors include: Irving Bacheller, George Washington Cable, George Wharton Edwards, John Erskine, Franklin Henry Giddings, George Bird Grinnell, Rossiter Johnson, John Uri Lloyd, Brander Matthews, George Barr McCutcheon, Albert Payson Terhune, Carl Van Doren, and Henry van Dyke. As noted in the table of content and errata slip, not all of the authors were able to sign this volume: eight died before the presses had finished so facsimiles were used for Joseph Alexander Altsheler, Julius Chambers, William Henry McElroy, Charles Augustus Stoddard, Stephen Henry Thayer, Calvin Thomas, James Terry White, and William Young; two had gone blind, James Thompson Bixby and Richard Rodgers Bowker, and could no longer sign their name consistently; one contributor was off traveling, Frank Crane; and one was ill, William Ordway Partridge. This copy of The Second Book of the Authors Club Liber Scriptorum is exceptional because it is accompanied by all but one of the manuscripts from the contributing authors, along with the majority of the galley proofs. The Henry van Dyke manuscript is missing but included is Francis Whiting Halsey's manuscript, "Mulberry and a Book," which is included in the manuscript of the table of contents but was not included in the published book, likely due to the author's death in late 1919. The typed and autographed manuscripts range from small octavo to folio and are in various conditions, averaging very good or better. Many of them have some light to moderate tanning, tears or chipping, most likely due to years of storage in a contemporary clamshell box, also included. Nearly all the manuscripts (including the title page, table of contents and preface) contain minor to major corrections and additions, as well as notes to the printer and are held together with paperclips or pins with some minor oxidation. Many of the manuscripts are also Signed by their contributors, most notably Bixby, Bowker, White, and Young, who did not ultimately sign the published book. In addition to these manuscripts, the galley proofs of all but 13 of the contributions are included as well. They vary greatly in size, with many cut down from long galleys, probably for easier editing and storage. Nearly all are stamped, "The Plimpton Press, Duplicate Proofs," with some scattered chips and tears, along with editing marks and notes for the printer, about near fine. A one of a kind collection. Details available upon request. .

The collection includes over 150 dated and signed letters written to (and a few items from) Dr. Lucinda DeLeftwich Templin (1888-1969) author, historian & collector, "...one of El Paso's best-loved and most distinguished educators - in 1916 she took her undergraduate and Master's at U. of Missouri and became Dean of Lindenwood College in St. Charles, MO., did doctoral work at Harvard and Columbia and took over as principal at the Radford School in 1927 (at the time, called El Paso School for Girls); Dr. Templin interested Mr. and Mrs. G.
