        Printer's advertisement for Ulysses

      1922. (BEACH, Sylvia) JOYCE, James. Printer's advertisement for Ulysses. Paris: Shakespeare and Company, circa 1931. Single printed sheet, measuring 5-1/2 by 5 inches. $13,500.Original Shakespeare and Company printer's advertisement for the works of James Joyce, annotated at length on the verso by Sylvia Beach listing the publication and availability of the first three parts of Finnegans Wake while still under the working title Works in Progress.After working seven years on Ulysses, Joyce, desperate to find a publisher, turned to Sylvia Beach of Shakespeare and Company in Paris. ""Within a month of the publication, the first printing of Ulysses was practically sold out, and within a year Joyce had become a well-known literary figure"" (de Grazia, 27). From that point forward, Beach represented Joyce and his work in nearly every capacity, "" facing down outraged critics, legal rulings and printers who refused to take on Joyce's work"" (British Library). This printer's advertisement reflects Beach's lifelong commitment to promoting Joyce's work, including through the writing of Finnegans Wake, seen here when it was still Work in Progress. The lengthy notations cover the verso and are entirely in Beach's hand: ""1st fragment of 'Work in Progress' published in New York by Crosby Gage 1928 Anna Livia Plurabelle (from part I) 650 copies all signed. 2nd fragment Tales Told of Shem & Shaun (from part II) The Black Sun Press, Paris 1929. 3rd fragment Babou & Kahane, Paris 1930 Haveth Childers Everywhere from part III. Parts I and III and a small section of part II of Work in Progress appeared in the review Transition Nos 1-8 and III to 15."" Interestingly, Finnegans Wake led to the undoing of Beach and her bookshop. Shakespeare and Company ""closed in December 1941, when a Nazi officer threatened to confiscate the stock of the bookshop if Sylvia did not sell him her only copy of the novel"" (Fitch, 393). Beach had endured a downturn in business, hiding her stock from the Nazis, the deaths of her husband and James Joyce. Ultimately, she could not endure the perversion of Joyce's legacy. This printer's advertisement represents the twilight years of Joyce's brilliant career, before he succumbed to illness and disability, when the possibilities of Finnegans Wake, still unfinished, seemed limitless and Sylvia Beach had no reason to believe her reign as the most powerful literary figure in Paris would ever end. Small repricing overlay reading ""Frs. 12"" on recto. Printed telephone number on recto crossed out with new number neatly stamped below. Two annotations in an unknown hand: [below Ulysses] ""in paper covers cloth binding"" and [below Pomes Penyeach] ""(out of print).""About-fine condition.

        Remembrance of Things Past

      1922. First Edition . PROUST, Marcel. Remembrance of Things Past. London: Chatto & Windus / Knopf, 1922-31. Eleven volumes. Original blue cloth, uncut and mostly unopened; original dust jacket (Volume II of Within a Budding Grove). $9200.First edition in English of Proust's masterpiece. Issued over a number of years by two different publishers, complete sets are quite rare.In a February 1908 letter Proust mentioned wanting to ""start a rather long work."" Fourteen years and some two million words later, in February of 1922, he wrote, ""A la recherche du temps perdu is scarcely beginning."" Proust died nine months later, still in the midst of revisions and additions. Of his magnum opus he said, ""I have tried to put all my philosophy into it, to make all my `music' resonate."" Cocteau described the work as ""a giant miniature, full of mirages."" In a contemporary review Maurice Rostand said Proust ""comes to us speaking the language he alone speaks and which he has created himself to express his soul… and this masterpiece, at once so lucid and so mysterious, in which he has found the means to express what seems inexpressible, say what seems unsayable — it is a soul under guise of a book"" (Hayman, 274, 489, 387). This set consists of all first editions in English save for Cities of the Plain, first translated in 1927, here represented by the 1929 limited edition (this copy number 767 of 2230 copies); the 1927 edition of Cities of the Plain was published in New York and is not uniform with the English editions, making this combination much preferred. The final volume, Time Regained, the only volume translated by Stephen Hudson, is number 8 of a limited first edition of 1300. Without the very scarce dust jackets for 10 of the 11 volumes. The Romance Literatures III:515. Connolly 23. Contemporary owner signature.Interiors fine, with a bit of scattered foxing in first volume of Swann's Way and The Captive only. Publisher's cloth fine and beautiful; toning and wear to spine of rare dust jacket for Volume II of Within A Budding Grove. A rare set in exceptional condition.

        Fregate ""La Serieuse""

      1922. VIGNY, Alfred de. La Frégate “La Sérieuse,” ou la Plainte du Capitaine. Poème. Paris: René Kieffer (Ducros, Lefèvre et Colas), (1922). Tall octavo, publisher’s deluxe full green morocco gilt, embossed cover illustration, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, uncut. $1500.Fine limited edition, number 18 of only 550 copies (one of only 50 on Japanese paper), of this melancholy poem on the fate of the French frigate “La Sérieuse,” which was dismasted and sunk by Nelson’s British fleet in the “Battle of the Nile,” with 14 illustrations (four full-page) by Pierre Falké, colored en pochoir. This copy includes a second suite of sepia illustrations bound at the rear.In January 1798 the French gathered an army and substantial fleet in the Mediterranean port of Toulon. It was apparent to the British that Napoleon planned to invade somewhere on the coast of the Mediterranean, but it was not clear where. “By Nelson’s assessment, which proved correct, Napoleon intended to take Malta and then invade the Turkish Khediveate of Egypt, providing support to Tipoo Sultan in his fight with the British in India and restoring French influence in that sub-continent. The government in London and the East India Company panicked at the prospect… Nelson’s fleet set sail for Egypt… to find Alexandria filled with French transport vessels, when the signal was flown ‘Enemy in sight.’ The search for the French Fleet was over; Nelson’s ships cleared for action” (. In the ensuing “Battle of the Nile,” engaged in Aboukir Bay, Napoleon’s Fleet was completely overwhelmed. Of its 13 ships of the line and four frigates, one ship had sunk (“La Sérieuse”), two ships were burned and nine ships captured. It was arguably one of the most decisive battles in the history of naval warfare. Illustrated by maritime specialist Pierre Falké, this poem by de Vigny memorializes that resounding loss. Bookplate. Gift inscription in pencil. Kieffer’s bookseller ticket.A fine copy, with the spine slightly toned.

        Stavrogin's Confession and The Plan of The Life of a Great Sinner.

      Richmond: Leonard & Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press,, 1922. With Introductory and Explanatory Notes. Translated by S. S. Koteliansky and Virginia Woolf. Octavo. Original blue cloth-backed blue and white patterned sides, printed paper labels to spine and front cover, top edge trimmed, others untrimmed.

We taught ourselves a little Russian in order to be able to understand Koteliansky's problems in translating. The procedure was that Koteliansky translated the Russian book into very bad English in double-spaced lines, that Mrs Woolf went through the text with him, sentence by sentence, and then put the translation into good English" (Leonard Woolf). Portions of Stavrogin's Confession were published in the first issue of T. S. Eliot's Criterion, alongside Eliot's "Waste Land", in October 1922.

        Vereinigte Pinsel-Fabriken

      Vereinigte Pinsel-Fabriken, Nurnburg 1922 - Octavo publisher's printed stiff wrapper; 81 chromolithograph plates numbered 1-75 + 6 unnumbered plates. A nice copy. Beauty in unexpected places. For years we have been devotees of chromolithograph brush catalogues. The earliest chromolitho brush catalogues we've seen (mostly European and a few English) date from ca. 1900. For obvious reasons WWII drastically reduced publications of elaborate and expensively produced catalogues. Here the Vereinigte Pinsel-Fabriken offers a wide array of brushes for artists, decorators and trademen and women, as as well brushes for domestic use (i.e. shaving brushes). At the end of the catalogue are offered some palette knives, combs, and burnishing tools. The year 1922 was at the zenith of hyperinflation of the Weimar Republic, and thus it is not surprising that the present Vereinigte catalogue is not priced (!) -- the Vereinigte Pinsel-Fabriken still operates in Nurnberg under the umbrella of Leonhardy-VP (Vereinigte Pinselfabriken).

        Places: 7 Prints from Woodblocks Designed and Engraved by Paul Nash

      William Heinemann, London 1922 - Small quarto. (10)ff. One of 55 copies printed on Japon and signed by the artist, with illustrations printed directly from the woodblock. The seven full-page plates are accompanied by "prose-illustrations" in wood-engraved text, poetically describing the places depicted in the prints. This is the first book written and illustrated by Nash, and the fifth book overall to contain his illustrations. After a stint as a soldier during the first World War, Nash worked as an official artist for the War Propaganda Bureau, and he rendered scenes in both France and England between 1917 and 1918. While visiting his father in 1921, Nash collapsed from what we now call post-traumatic stress disorder, and to aid in his recovery, he moved to the sea and began painting seascapes. Turning to the medium of the wood engraving allowed Nash to produce bolder, more abstract illustrations with roots in Surrealism; these forest scenes have a dream-like quality. He would continue this bold aesthetic in his well-received work on the Nonesuch Genesis, which appeared in 1924. An uncommon work in this most limited state (there was also an edition of 200 copies), this copy retains the publisher's binding of pictorial white boards printed in black, with a black cloth spine. Negligible soiling to covers, small, shallow bump to lower corners, else fine. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Remembrance of Things Past (Complete in 11 Volumes)

      New York: Henry Holt, Thomas Seltzer, and Albert and Charles Boni, 1922-1932. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. First American edition, first printing. Complete in eleven volumes. Original cloth with black spine labels, matching except for Cities of the Plain, which was bound in white cloth and silver and black paper as a numbered limited edition. Very Good overall, sans jackets: some volumes more edge-worn and corner-bumped than others with various degress of sunning to similar but not identically colored cloths, dulling/ chipping to labels, generally internally sound. Both volumes of Swann's Way and Cities of the Plain are near fine with contemporary matching bookplates on the paste downs of the former set, the latter has a bit of rubbing to the silver and black paper covers. Bookplate on paste down of Within a Budding Grove's second volume, a bit of gnawing along its spine edge, and rear hinge split; good only. Both volumes of The Guermantes Way well-worn along edges. The Captive has a frayed head (perhaps his captor snacked on it?). A little wrinkling to prelims of Sweet Cheat Gone.An uncommon assemblage of the first American appearances of Marcel Proust's groundbreaking novel in seven parts, issued by three US publishers over a period of ten years. All but the final volume are Brit C.K. Scott Moncrieff's translations; upon his passing the UK and US final volumes diverged in both title and translator.

        [ Photograph ] A Wonderful Image of Thomas Edison and Steinmetz examining Insulators

      Unknown, 1922. Later printing. Photograph. Near Fine. Later printing. An unframed silver print mounted on backing board showing Steinmetz (the Father of Electrical Engineering and the founder of the GE Research lab) and Thomas Edison examining some insulators on a laboratory table at GE in 1922.While this image was first published in 1922, this may be a later printing of the image. Photograph. On board that is 12 3/8 inches by 8 3/4 inches. Photographic paper is 8 x 10, and actual image on the photographic paper is 7 1/4 x 8 1/2 inches. With extensive remarquing in the image for publication, most of the laboratory in the back has been airbrushed out. The outlines of Steinmetz's head have been highlighted, the table edge softened, etc. This is a famous image that has been published in many forms (some with people in the background, some as here with nothing in the background) In this particular shot, it looks like the people sometimes seen in the background aren't there, as outlines of windows, etc can be seen underneath the airbrushing.&#11;&#11;Covered with tissue, and then paper. Rear notes "Photo Underwood & Underwood. Thomas Edison & Dr. Steinmetz in Steinmetz Laboratory" and below that "Chapter XIX ?? II, Stuart(?) 313A"&#11;&#11;We bought this image with another Edison photograph which was published in a book by Caldwell circa 1946. But we have not been able to determine conclusively where this photograph was published.&#11;&#11;A special copy, as it was very likely published, and large enough to have a great presence framed.

        The Five Jars

      London: Edward Arnold, 1922. FIRST EDITION. 8vo. pp. 172, with 7 full page illustrations by Gilbert James. Publisher's orange cloth, with titles printed in black. Internally clean and bright. Sharp and tight, essentially a fine copy with some spotting to the page edges and a trifle of bumping and shelfwear. In a very sharp, clean example of the scarce dustwrapper, one significant corner of loss to the upper right front panel, repaired at some point, otherwise minor wear and chipping to the extremities and some pale pink staining and discolouration to the outer edge of the rear panel. Strong, handsome and very seldom seen. Ostensibly a children's book from this distinguished and highly influential writer of chilling stories of the supernatural, this is the collection of stories that James would have read aloud in his rooms to some of his charges at Eton School, including fledgling wordsmiths George Orwell and Ian Fleming.

        Isotopes

      London Edward Arnold 1922 First Impression of Aston's key work on isotopes, for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1922. 8vo: viii,152pp, with 4 halftone plates and numerous tables and line drawings in the text. Publisher's original dark blue cloth, covers paneled in blind, spine lettered in gilt. A beautiful copy, uncommon in such nice condition. Fine, except for light offsetting to end papers and slightly bumped spine ends. Appears unread. Judging from auction records, never issued in dust jacket. Norman 77. PMM 412. Gillispie, pp. 320-22. Fine ¶ Aston, building on the work of J. J. Thomson at Cambridge, developed modern mass spectrograph technology to investigate inconsistencies in the atomic weights of elements, discovering that "the elements are composed of atoms of varying mass, the atomic weight of an element being the average of those atoms comprising it?. [Frederick] Soddy had coined the term isotopes for elements that are 'homogenous in chemical behaviour'. Thus, for example, no process of chemical analysis will differentiate between thorium, one form of uranium, and ionium, although each has a different atomic weight. Aston carried this investigation one very important stage further by demonstrating that similar conditions occur within the elements themselves [eventually identifying 212 naturally occurring isotopes by analyzing all but three of the non-radioactive elements in the periodic table.]. . . . The ultimate consequences of these discrepancies are far-reaching. The ration between hydrogen and oxygen is not 4:1, as it 'should be', but rather less; which means that when four atoms of hydrogen are transformed into one helium atom some matter is annihilated. In fact this is an example of the interchangeability between mass and energy which is postulated in Einstein's General Theory of Relativity" (PMM 412). Aston's "work on isotopes also led to his formulation of the whole number rule which states that 'the mass of the oxygen isotope being defined [as 16], all the other isotopes have masses that are very nearly whole numbers,' a rule that was used extensively in the development of nuclear energy." (ODNB) "Aston's achievements were kept continually before the scientific public by revised editions of his excellent book Isotopes. The included . . . a clear forecast of the power and dangers of harnassed atomic energy." (Gillispie) N. B.
