[Native Americans]. [Canada]
[Various places in British Columbia & Alaska, 1922. Very good.. Fifteen real photo postcards. Light wear and soiling. Several with manuscript notations and/or postmarks on verso. A collection of real photo postcards depicting First Peoples and indigenous life in British Columbia, with two images depicting similar scenes in Alaska. Taken by various photographers over the course of several years, these images show native people in towns across the province. Identified locations include Radium, Kitwanga, Vernon, Prince Rupert, Victoria, and Alert Bay. Identified photographers include W.W. Wrathall (active in Prince Rupert in 1916); Henry Twidle (Granite Bay, 1922-1924); Trio (Victoria, 1914-1925); Vernon Photo Co. (Vernon, 1910-1920); Gowan-Sutton Co. (Vancouver, 1920-1925); and Elliott & Baglow (North Vancouver, 1907-1908). The Alaska photographs are attributed to Otto Schallerer, who was active in Seward and later Ketchikan in the 1920s. An unidentified photograph shows a group of ten Inuit -- two men, five women, and three children -- smiling into the camera. The man wear traditional clothing made from skins, while the women have on cotton dresses with gloves and fur hoods (likely worn over their warmer clothes). An image attributed to Elliott & Baglow of North Vancouver depicts a large group titled "Indian Chiefs, B.C." It shows nearly three dozen men arrayed for the camera outdoors all dressed in traditional headdresses and robes. Another striking image taken at Radium shows a family of Kootenay Indians posed in their buggy, possibly outside their home. Severa … [Click Below for Full Description]

J.R.R. Tolkien
Extremely rare 1922 first edition copy of Tolkien's first published book, as issued, with stiff paper covers. Even reprints in poor condition are being offered for hundreds of dollars. [Sold but immediately cancelled before it shipped, so now relisted. Please ask questions and consider carefully.] Observe that part of the paper covering the spine has worn away in places, mostly at the top and bottom. Note the stains to the front cover, which don't however bleed through to the inside. Spine paper darkened. Sewn binding still holding together well. Note the book's corners, which do not appear to have been bumped during the last 98 years. One page in the index has a short, closed edge tear. (See photo). After Tolkien's "Note" preceding the glossary, (which makes up almost all of the book), the 10 leaves that follow (both sides of course) have short creases at the upper corner (see photo). There is no writing anywhere in the book. A few pages have tiny dots of uncertain origin. If you'd like to see a photo of one of them, just ask. Despite its remarkably good overall condition, this book obviously should be presumed to be quite fragile and handled with special care. I've kept it bagged for the last several decades, and it does not appear to have changed during that time. In normal circumstances an adult signature would be required for delivery of this item - however, I believe that the US Postal Service currently uses a substitute method of confirming the recipient's identity, rather than a signature, due to concerns about physical distancing.

Wittgenstein, Ludwig
Harcourt, Brace and Company, New York, 1922. First edition of Wittgenstein's first book, considered a masterpiece of philosophy. Octavo, original cloth, text in English and German. Introduction by Bertrand Russell. In fine condition. An exceptional example, uncommon in this condition. The cornerstone text of Logical Positivism and of the Cambridge school of analytic philosophy, the Tractatus articulates the relationship of language and reality, and defines the limits of science. Now universally recognized as one of the philosophical masterpieces of the 20th century, the work was far from an overnight success. The Tractatus employs an austere and succinct literary style. The work contains almost no arguments as such, but rather consists of declarative statements, or passages, that are meant to be self-evident. Ludwig Wittgenstein: A Comprehensive Bibliography, p. 4.

AUSTEN, Jane.
London: J. M. Dent & Sons Ltd, 1922. London: J. M. Dent & Sons Ltd,, 1922. 6 volumes, octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spines in gilt, illustrated front pastedowns. Colour frontispiece with tissue-guards to each volume, title pages printed in blue and red, and 90 colour plates. Spines slightly sunned, light flecking to covers, slight offsetting to front free endpapers, faint foxing to rear endpapers, contents unmarked, plates bright. A very good set, clean and sound. An attractive set of Austen's novels, first published with Brock's illustrations between 1907 and 1909. C. E. Brock (1870-1938) first appeared as an illustrator of Jane Austen for Macmillan's 1895-7 Illustrated Standard Novels series, for Pride and Prejudice, with Hugh Thomson illustrating the other five titles. That series appeared in black and white, which better suited Thomson's skilful use of line. A decade later J. M. Dent, realising Brock's potential as a colourist, commissioned him to redo the Pride and Prejudice suite in colour, and also to create colour illustrations for the other five Austen titles. The colourful costumes and interior decor depicted here are reputedly accurate to the Regency period, as Charles Brock and his brother Henry collected antique furniture and clothing so that their friends and relations could model for the artists in their Cambridge studio.

Capek, Karel
Polygraphie, Brno, 1922. First edition of this biting science-fiction satire by a major Czech modernist. Capek’s plot is set in motion by an invention. A new carburetor uses nuclear fission to create clean, cheap energy, but also releases a byproduct of "Absolute," a "God particle" that produces an intense spiritual experience. Capek explores the unexpected pairing of limitless energy and unrestrained inspiration with black humor: "There have been some serious cases of enlightenment." The climax of the book reflects the cynicism produced by World War I, as an absurd Great War breaks out between competing religious groups: "you should not listen to those people when they proudly say what they lived through was the greatest war of all time. We all know, of course, that in a few decades’ time we will manage to create a war which is even greater." The novel is illustrated by Karel Capek’s brother Josef, an important modernist illustrator and book designer. The two brothers were central members of the Czech avant-garde between the wars: their intellectual circle promoted the modern renaissance of written Czech, publishing works like Továrna Na Absolutno in the vernacular rather than German. Josef Capek would die in a concentration camp in 1945, victim of an "eveOriginal green cloth with gilt decorations, design by the author’s brother Josef, spine lettered in gilt, text block, all edges marbled.

Czyżewski, Tytus and Frantiszek Benisz
Kraków: Instytut wydawniczy "Niezależnych," 1922. 12mo (14 × 11.3 cm). Original staple-stitched typographically illustrated peach-colored wrappers; [30] pp. Text printed in green. Fifteen drawings incorporating typographic elements. Fragile wrappers beginning to separate along lower spine; else very good. First edition of this work of Futurist poetry by Tytus Czyżewski (1880-1945), the Polish painter, Futurist poet, playwright, and Colorist. In 1917, together with the brothers Zbigniew and Andrzej Pronaszko, he organized an exhibition of Polish Expressionist works in Krakow, and their group later became known as the Polish Formists (Formisci). They merged various aspects of the European avant-garde including Cubism, Futurism, and Expressionism. Until the group's break-up in 1922, Czyżewski was their primary artist and theoretician as well as the joint editor of the journal Formisci. The present text is a lyric drama, in which pages of text alternate with concrete drawings (or "paintings") or visual poems, composed of typographic elements, such as bars and circles. The style of this work is described by the author as "Dynamopsycho" or "dynamo-psychic studies of specific moments." The compositions themselves were created by the printer, Frantiszek Benisz, based on drawings by Czyżewski. In spite of the relatively poor quality of the paper and the simple execution, one of the most striking early books of the Polish avant-garde. "In many of Czyżewski's poems, there is a Futuro-Dada symbiosis of the primitive and technology; a tendency to co … [Click Below for Full Description]

France: Brentano's, 1922. Binding is meh. Listen, we all know someone is going to break this for the plates. The fact that the binding is as is only makes that less painful for the buyer. Good afternoon from Congers, NY. I'm at heart a book guy. I found some very good books in a nearby estate this week, and I'm happy to share them here with my eBay buddies. Happy bidding & happy eBaying. "Le Bon Genre", "A Selection of 100 plates of the famous "Gazette Du Bon Genre" by G. Barbier, Benito, R. Bonfils, P. Brissaud, J.-G. Domergue, Drian, Iacovleff, G. Lepape, Ca. Martin, A.-E. Marty, Simeon, Thayaht, Etc.", "From the years 1920, 1921, 1922". Brentano's Paris New York Chicago London Washington, Printed in France (no date, but C. 1922). Plate after plate of incredible Parisian fashion of the Art Deco period. Pochoir plates, very lush and colorful, not faded. Let's talk price. I can find 4 copies that have come to auction since 2006. In 2006, a copy made $3250 plus a 22% premium against an estimate of $400-600 (total to buyer, $3965). In 2009, a copy did $3000 (estimate $2000- 3000, B.P. 22%, total $3660). Later in 2009, a copy did $3800 (estimate $2000-3000, B.P. 24%, $4712). Finally, in 2008, a copy did $4000 against an estimate of $4000 - 6000, buyer premium 22.5%, total to buyer, $4900. I have priced my copy below these examples, and you don't pay a buyer's premium. Last copy I can find was sold 11 years ago and I would guess this is among the class of items that have appreciated in the last decade. At my asking price, we are at $35 / plate, as opposed to almost $50 a plat … [Click Below for Full Description]

Czyżewski, Tytus and Frantiszek Benisz
Kraków: Instytut wydawniczy "Niezależnych," 1922. 12mo (14 × 11.3 cm). Original staple-stitched typographically illustrated peach-colored wrappers; [30] pp. Text printed in green. Fifteen drawings incorporating typographic elements. Fragile wrappers beginning to separate along lower spine; else very good. First edition of this work of Futurist poetry by Tytus Czyżewski (1880-1945), the Polish painter, Futurist poet, playwright, and Colorist. In 1917, together with the brothers Zbigniew and Andrzej Pronaszko, he organized an exhibition of Polish Expressionist works in Krakow, and their group later became known as the Polish Formists (Formisci). They merged various aspects of the European avant-garde including Cubism, Futurism, and Expressionism. Until the group's break-up in 1922, Czyżewski was their primary artist and theoretician as well as the joint editor of the journal Formisci. The present text is a lyric drama, in which pages of text alternate with concrete drawings (or "paintings") or visual poems, composed of typographic elements, such as bars and circles. The style of this work is described by the author as "Dynamopsycho" or "dynamo-psychic studies of specific moments." The compositions themselves were created by the printer, Frantiszek Benisz, based on drawings by Czyżewski. In spite of the relatively poor quality of the paper and the simple execution, one of the most striking early books of the Polish avant-garde. "In many of Czyżewski's poems, there is a Futuro-Dada symbiosis of the primitive and technology; a tendency to connect unconne … [Click Below for Full Description]

J.R.R. Tolkien
Extremely rare 1922 first edition copy of Tolkien's first published book, as issued, with stiff paper covers. Observe that part of the paper covering the spine has worn away in places, mostly at the top and bottom. Note the stains to the front cover, which don't however bleed through to the inside. Spine paper darkened. Sewn binding still holding together well. Note the book's corners, which do not appear to have been bumped during the last 98 years. One page in the index has a short, closed edge tear. (See photo). After Tolkien's "Note" preceding the glossary, (which makes up almost all of the book), the 10 leaves that follow (both sides of course) have short creases at the upper corner (see photo). There is no writing anywhere in the book. A few pages have tiny dots of uncertain origin. If you'd like to see a photo of one of them, just ask. Despite its remarkably good overall condition, this book obviously should be presumed to be quite fragile and handled with special care. I've kept it bagged for the last several decades, and it does not appear to have changed during that time. In normal circumstances an adult signature would be required for delivery of this item - however, I believe that the US Postal Service currently uses a substitute method of confirming the recipient's identity, rather than a signature, due to concerns about physical distancing. Instead of a signature, stating one's name or showing an ID to the postal delivery person, may be sufficient. If you have concerns about the method of in-person delivery in current use by the USPS, you should probably consu … [Click Below for Full Description]

Light rubbing to the extremities, with a small closed tear to the bottom centre of the rear panel. A correct first edition, first issue dust wrapper ( as is the book ) with the publishers printed price of 3/6net present to the lower spine. A most attractive example of a scarce title.

The Right Honourable Sir Edward Cecil Moore
Private Publication, London, 1922. Note: While I have researched this book, it provoked me to look into its many facets. This can lead you down interesting and differing pathways. What is this books appeal? Is it it just a collection of signatures, important though some are individually? Are the signatures connected? Amalgamated over a relatively short period, from late 1922 to the middle of 1923. My own intrique began from the very first page: the following script appears "Athlone" , then come the signatures of Randall Thomas ( Davidson ) & Edith M. Davidson dated 28.11.1922. I was immediately drawn to the Irish Question? This is a subject that has consumed the populations of Britain and Ireland both before and after this time, but the 6th Dec 1922, only 8 days later, was pivotal as it was the day that confirmed the 'Irish Free State' - What is the connection? Is there a connection? Later in the book, Randall T. Davidson [ Randall Thomas Davidson, 1st Baron Davidson of Lambeth, GCVO, PC (7 April 1848 - 25 May 1930) was an Anglican priest who was Archbishop of Canterbury from 1903 to 1928. He was the longest-serving holder of the office since the Reformation, and also the first to retire from it. ] features again, his signature snugly sandwiched between Edward P (Prince Edward (Later King Edward VIII - he of abdication) and that of Neville Chamberlain, a backbencher until 1922. He was rapidly promoted in 1923 to Minister of Health and then Chancellor of the Exchequer. { later of 'Peace in our time" } And with these entries and their combination, they engender an inquiry bey … [Click Below for Full Description]

The quality of the photos. 159 Seiten. Марина Ивановна Цветаева (26 сентября (1892-1941) -- поэтесса прозаик, переводчица один из крупнейших поэтов XX века. Марина Цветаева, "Царь-девица", поэма-сказка, 1922 г., издательство - "Эпоха", Берлин, С.-Петербургъ, 159 стр., 192 x 130 мм. обл. и украшения Л.Е. Чириковой. Запрещенное и изъятое из обращения в СССР издание. Впервые поэма-сказка " Царь-Девица " вышла отдельной книгой в 1922 году в Москве (изд. ГИЗ ). В том же году в Берлине ( изд. Эпоха ) напечатано второе издание, с исправлением опечаток и уточнений, внесённых А.С.Эфрон. Сюжет поэмы заимствован из одноимённой русской сказки А.Н.Афанасьева. Особенно важно то, что в этой поэме, быть может, впервые со всей ясностью Цветаева открывает читателям тайну своего трагического мироощущения: " Царь-Девица " - поэма об одиночестве в любви. Для поэтессы выход видится только в одном - в мечте, в мире " лазури ", полностью освобождающей от быта. Издание оформлено художницей Людмилой Евгеньевной Чириковой, эмигрировавшей в 1920 году. О своем знакомстве с Цветаевой Чирикова писала: «Меня судьба столкнула с Мариной Цветаевой в 1922 году в Берлине.
